iM ROBBERS HOLD UP
CENTRAL PARK BANK
Manager and Clerk of Northern Crown Branch Beaten Up
-Men Escape in Rig With $1500-Police Are Hot on
Scent���Surround Woods Where Fugitives Hide���Waiting
For Dawn to Make Capture.
Up to 3 o'clock this morning the
men concerned in the robbery of the
Northern Crown bank at Central Park
had not been captured. The police of
Burnaby and Point Grey are co-operating with the South Vancouver authorities, and it is expected that with
the coming o f the light the fugitives
��� will be discovered hidden In the
woods which are now surrounded by
a blue coated cordon.
Story of Crime.
After clubbing Manager C. C.
Temple Into insensibility, and beating
a bank clerk named F. A. Tompkins
severely about the head, two robbers
yesterday afternoon effected an entrance Into the branch of the Northern Crown bank at Central Park,
and, aided by the confusion which
reigned in the locality at their spectacular methods, succeeded in making
a clean get away with over $1500 of
the banks funds.
About 1:30 p.m., just after Mr.
Temple had returned from lunch, two
quietly dressed men drove up to the
bank door and stopped. There was
nothing suspicious in their appearance and wben they entered the bank
together Mr. Temple was in the main
office away from the teller's box
where the revolvers are kept.
Hands Up.
Suddenly the taller of the two men
drew a gun at the same time snarling
"Hands up." and when the command
wart obeyed by the bank officials, bta
shorter companion vaulted the conn-
bank at Central Park. Mr. O. A.
Bibbs, who distinguished himself on
that occasion, has since been transferred to the head office at Vancouver.
Two ladies reported last night that
they had seen two men crossing the
North Arm of the Fraser in a boat,
but tue police do not attach much
Importance to this in connection with
the case.

the boy several times ln the face felling him to the floor.
Got Clear Away.
In an almost inconceivably abort
apace of time the robbers had rifled
the safe of Its contents, and, before
tbe alarm could be raised, had climb
ed Into their rig and driven furiously
down the Westminster road, turning
up Boundary road and into the Ne. 1
road. Here all trace of them appears
to be lost, although posses ot pollce
are searching the district with vigilance.
Present Description.
The description of the men as
given by the bank officials la quite
meagre. One man was about flve feet
ten inches tall, clean shaven, and
wore a brown suit, and a soft felt hat
"The other1 was about five feet six
tncbes in height, wore a blue ault and
a Fedora hat.
Former Attempt.
This is the second deed of violence
which the Northern Crown branch at
Central Park has been the scene of
this year. In January two hold-up
men attempted to duplicate the local
Bank of Montreal stunt one dark Friday night, and had it not been for
tbe bravery and fortitude of a clerk,
Mr. O. A. Bibbs, who arose from his
bed on the bank premises in his
night clothes, and indulged in gun
play with the robbors, lt is certain
that the malefactors would have made
away with considerable coin.
The boldness of the robbery stands
almost without parallel tn the history
of crime in Greater Vancouver, the
time being practfoally the busiest portion of the day and the district being
one of the most thickly settled of the
suburban localities.
Sighted the Quarry.
About 4:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon the South Vancouver police
working in a posse, traced the robbers to Argyle street near the River
road. Here Constable Small, who was
working from the river Bide caught
eight of the men driving toward him
about three hundred yards away.
He ran forward, but the mon quickly turned their horse in the road. and.
jumping from the carriage, made off
into the thick timber. .
This piece of woods was Immediately surrounded by the police, and as
darkness fell the chain was strengthened by members ot the force working ln other localities who had come
after receiving Information that the
I robbers had been sighted.

An interesting exhibit on the
grounds was the flrat car ever operated on the Vancouver lines. No. 10
Is Its number and it occasioned many
a smile from tbe hundreds wbo inspected it. that such a primative
model could have ever, run on the B.
C. E. R. Right alongside It was a
new model of a Fraser valley car,
equipped in every detail. The comparison was that of a modern Dreadnought to an old wooden frigate.
The quota from this city was even
more noticeable yesterday that Wednesday, and tbe new men on the cars
had little rest yesterday handling the
traffic while the older heads were out
at Vancouver enjoying themselves.
It will probably have cost the company $6000 for the two days outing
but the officials consider this well
spent if it further cements the good
feeling that exists between the employees and the company.
Scores gathered in the dance hall
last evening and when the band played Its last item, many a sigh went up
that such occasions happen but once
a year.

The new hotel building which' has
been lh the course of construction
daring the past two or three?wonth��
at the corner of Carnarvon and
Eighth streets is now practically completed, and will be ready for occupancy about August 1. At present the
outside and inside finishing touches
to tbe structure are being made, but
it Is expected that they will be finished in time to allow for the opening of
the hotel on the date above mentioned.
'ihe hostelry is undoubtedly one of
the finest buildings in the city, and no
expense has been spared in its equipment. It has a very pretentious appearance outside and is a decided
ornament to the corner which it
graces. The bricks with which it is
constructed are the first of their kind
ever used in New Westminster, and
their arrangement In tbe construction
of the building bas given lt a very-
unique appearance.
The-interior oi the hotel will be
most elaborately furnished, everything being supplied by a prominent
local dealer. Tbe stationary fittings
of the various rooms are aUo of unusually good material.
The bar room iE being most magnificently and luxuriously fitted up.
The ceiling, is of opalescent glass, behind which nre being adjusted the
electric lights. This arrangement, it
Is said, will shower the roon with a
bright, but unusually soft Tght which
wlll have an easing effect on the
eyes of patrons. The looking glasses
and other equipment of the bar will
be of the best, and tbe most modern
equipment for eerving liquors will be
inserted.
The dining room is large, spacious
and well lighted with seats for 100
people. The kitchen will be fitted In
a fully modern style. Each bedroom
ln the hotel Is equlped with a steam
radiator, and running hot and cold
water.
The building, which Is 66 feet
square and With the basement four
storeys high, contains 62 bedrooms.
The main floor Is divided Into an
office, dining room and kitchen. On
the second floor there are two bathrooms, a parlor and bedrooms. The
second and .third floors have each two
bath rooms and the majority of the
bedrooms. The bar le lqcated balf

lumber shipped north of the main line
of the Canadian Pacific railway, are
the highest on the American continent was the contention of Mr. W. A,
Anstie, solicitor fpr the Mountain
Lumber Manufacturers' association,
appearing today before tbe Dominion
railway commission. Mr. . Anstie
charged that - tlie, lumber rate is oot
only much higher tban the rate on
coat for tue same points, but is-utter-
ly Inconsistent The case was taken
under advisement.
\ Mr. William Geergeson, a political;
warhorse   of  Alberta,  who  has been
mentioned for a senatorshlp, threw a
small bomb Into the commission meet
ing  when  he  accused  the  Canadian
Pacific of   "malicious   discrimination
with Intent to Injure this   complain
ant's business."    Mr, Georgeson is a
rate expert and had    several    sharp
tilts with the railway solicitors before
his own case came up.   Then he   accused  the  railway of delivering gro
cerles to R. Smith & Co., in Calgary
from Winnipeg, at a flat rate of 21
cents, while the Georgeson company
is charged $1.13.   He alleged the dls
criminaticn vvas    because    Smith    &
Co. boarded  the  ra'lway's men    employed   in the    ma'ntenancc   depart

from the heavens and appeared to

carpenter who was Btunned was seen
to stagger, while his companions
covered up their eyes as if to shut
out a glaring light.
Immediately after the ball broke a
terrific peal of thunder occurred, and
dust and smoke drifted away from
th^ scene upon the wind.
To the knowledge ot some of the
oldest residents lightning was never
known to strike any building in New
Westminster before, and the incident
was one of the most peculiar that has
ever occurred ln the history of the
eity.
Touching upon the subject of thunderbolts, a retired naval officer informs the Westminster Dally News
that whilst H.M.S. Anson was lying
oft the port of Venice some 15 years
ago, a terrific electrical storm took
place, and on this occasion a large
tire ball was observed to descend into the sea. The fire ball bars* with
a loud detonation on entering the
water, and waa then aome twenty

After a complete   scrutWy   of this-
distrlct as well as the opportunities
afforded by Vancouver,   tbiB   gentleman came to the conclusion that only-
three situations were eligible for tbe
elevators.    These were on tbe southern side of Lulu Island and tbe northern portion of Annacis island,   tbe
down river extremity of Lulu island,
or in    Coquitlam.    The   latter   sifts,
however, he considered as improbable.

Decision of the Privy Council Upsets
Titles to Hundreds of Asres���
Colossal Tangle.
South Vancouver, July 25.���When in
London the privy council made known
Its final ruling yesterday in the case
of Rolston'and Fleming vs. Anderson
by refusing to consider an application
for leave to appeal, this legal decision
practically upset the titles to hundreds of acres of land situated in the
suburbs of Greater Vancouver and
in municipalities immediately adjacent.
For four years Mr. A. A. Anderson,
a former mayor of Vancouver, has
waged a bitter.ftght for the recovery
of district lot 701, South Vancouver.
This property was sold at public auc
tlon at a tax sale held in the municipality In 1008 for the absurd price
of $1S4. The property Increased In
value to $164,000, and Mr. Anderson
carried his case through to the highest and, final court ln the empire lu
an endeavor, to recover the 180 lotB
Contained In D. L. 701.
Summed up In a nutshell tlte privy
council ruled that thO' municipality
of Soutb Vancouver tnd no right to
sell the property at ali.
A vista ot litigation without precedent or parallel iu the history of the
west is certain to be the result of the
decision. South Vancouver as well as
other municipalities and cities In British Columbia held many tax sales
and the disposition ot thtecase wlll
without doubt have the result of providing a precedent for legal mon and
Justices to go by In the future.
The chief point bearing upon the
decision was the fact that the South
Vancouver municipal council held all
Its meetings for a number of years
outside tbe municipality, for the simple reason tljisjt a suitable meeting
place could not be procured.
The meetings were held ln Vancouver which would have been all right
providing a resolution bad flrBt heen
passed a"thorlz1rife the move.^ Thle
was not done, however, hence the
illegality ot all measures passed by
the 1908 cohncll. >'

ed that they are to be���1*
the representative on condition that

should be suppressed for a week- or

made. To disclose this at tbe present time, he declared, would only Injure an Industry whjch would without doubt do much for the locality ha
which it was established.
Seventy-two Trains Par Day.
"Once established the proponed elevators will require to supply themt
and to handle the produce from tbe^
prairies the astounding number of
seventy-two trains per day or-
one train every twenty minutea. Thle
would require miles of trackage rad'
a huge site."

places only were found available fbr

ANCIENT  SURGERY.
Thev Used a File In Trepanning Oo-
���rations In Hippocrates' Time.
There is no doubt that sonic rough
form of surgery must have existed
from very undent times, but it Is
strange to timi that so complex and
delicate un operation us trepanning is
one of the oldest.
So far as actual records go, Hippocrates gives ns llie earliest account.
He wrote treatises ou fractures, dislocations and wounds uf the head, lu
wliich lie described the method ot procedure to lie followed In Ihe ease of a
fraetin-pd skull. Ills direction was to
cut away a piece of bone so that the
pressure on the liralu might he relieved.
Tliere nre also records about this
time and later of a llie being used tor
this purpose, which at a time when
anaesthetics were undreamed of must
have heen. to say the least, painful.
According to Dr. T. Rice Holmes, the
operation of removing pieces of bone
was performt 1 long before historic
times. The effects on the skull are
easily seen nfter death and are visible
so long as the hums are preserved.
From Inspection of certain skulls of
the later stone age in ancient Britain
Dr. Holmes has come to the conclusion
that some of these had undergone the
operation, which must have been performed with ii stone implement.���London Standard.

STORIES OF RUS IX.
What Will Ws Do Whan the Population
Outgrows tho Rainfall?
Dr.  McGee.  mi   American  scientist,
"who follows the form of Investigation
that   uses   weighing  scales  for  lestl
niony��� scales   that   cannot   lie,"   busi
found that the average Individual use*
directly or Indirectly about 4.400 fri��'
of water every year.   He drinks a tou.
The  vegetables   he  consumes  require
about 400 tous for their growth, and;
his annual meat supply of '.'00 pounds
usys   up   no   less  than   4,000  tous  ol
water.
Using this figure as a basis, Dr. McGee shows that when the population
of the United States hns reached 1.017.-
000.000. wllich he thinks will occur
ubout A. D. "2'JIO. every drop of the
aunnal rainfall wlll lie required to
maintain the food supply, and uo further increase of Inhabitants will be
possible.
The present Inhabitants of the entire
world, estimated at nbout l.oOO.OOO.OOO,
con be increased to 20.n00jbo.000 If
the total annual rainfall of earth remains us it Is today���that is. thirteen
times the present population will

The Lady Who Told the Pontiff Sht

Lady Pu��et In the Nineteenth Century bns- a chapter of recollections
dealing with life in Rome during tbe
first yeans of completely united Italy,
when Lady Pnget's husband was British ambassador to Ihe Qulrlnal. Among
ber stories are some of Pope Plus IX..
which show that pontiff In a most amiable light. Though the pope bad twice
excommunicated the king, tliey really
loved euch otber, says Lady Paget,
"for they were made of the same kind
of stuff, and both belonged emphatically to Ihe days that are past and gone.
Impulsive in action, |irimesaiitler and
generous In temperament, they allowed
themselves the luxury of sometime*
letting their feelings deviate from what
others might consider tbe stern path of
duty."
When King Victor Emmanuel died
his chaplain, again* all rules, gave
hlm absolution for everything, though
lie was nnder the major excommunication. The pope sent for lhe priest. Inquired most feelingly about lbe king's
last moments, and when the chaplain

A Loan That Carnegie's Old  Kinsman
Didn't Want Repaid.
Andrew Carnegie told the following
story with great relish.    When his father was leaving his native country lo
settle In America he borrowed 120 from
a relative.    The family had an uphill
battle on the other side of the Atlantic.
but when the tide of prosperity turned
with the son ho remembered bis father's indebtedness and determined to
clear it off. together with its accumulated interest.    lie started  by remitting Ihe sum  of  C20 and  for several
years scut the same amount, a dividend equal 1,0 exactly 100 per cent.
Returning to Scotland, the Pittsburgh
Ironmaster met bis old relative.
������Well." said Mr. Carnegie, "having
paid up a good deal of the Interest, I
should like uow to clear off Ihe principal."
"Ay, ay, Andrew, dinna ye fash yer-
sel' about the loan! A'm palrfectly
satisfied with the interest."
"Oh, but I'm rich enough now, 1
think, to clear off tbe principal!" replied the millionaire.
"Dinna mind the principal. Andrew."

Laziness a Disease.
Laziness should be regarded as a ills
ease when uo organic cause nf ill
health exists, and people should be
������unapplied to get through thoir allotted
work as Ihey would have to take their
powders of quinine lf they were suffering from influenza. There are
scores of self pitying loafers on the
sick list of every doctor who need, not
drugs, not '���treatment" of any sort,
but simply work. To prescribe rest
cures for this type is directly Inciting
Ihem to a \nr.y life, when Iheir dissatisfaction, general seedincss anil lack
of vitality are the direct outcome of
having too little lo do already; It Is
not more rest that tliey require, but

Changing  Its Position  In
Affect Its Tons.
It Is said Ihat Ihe very aet of moving a piano around In a room Is sufficient   to   disturb   its   tonal   qualities.
When  o   piano  has   been   moved   into
the position  fur  which it Is Intended,
is accustomed to the temperature ami
the drafts prevalent. It should be tuned,
expects say.    Any change of temperature   or   movement    may   cause   the
strings to contract or expand slightly \ himself,
with the resultant loss or gain of half i
n semitone.   ChllUglng the pos.ilion of a
piano Is snid (o have almost the soma
effect as constant playing, only In tha
latter case the constant action of tlm
hammers against the strings tends to
loosen iheir adjustment und the instrument runs out of tune.
Sea air has also a detrimental effect
on pianos. Here again confrnctloa
nnd expansion of thc wires are tho
chief onuses of disturbance. Pianos
constructed for the tropics are much
more strongly built than those used lu
temperate climates. Wood (hat Is not
liable to warp and crack Is used In tho
sounding Imnrds: otherwise they have
to be brass bound and staged to prevent splitting-New York Sun.

Pittsburg, July 25.���Death asd desolation spread broadcast over the
southwest counties, yesterday and
last night, as a result of doudbinaits
nnd overflowing streams.
Three score or more Jives wore
lost, while the damage to homes and
industries cannot be eslmated. Fff-

mountain sides, sougtit Shelter in
Bhacks and tents, toward the construction of which every available
piece of debris was turned to account
At daybreak, shivering women and
children gazed over the scene of desolation in the upper Toughiogheny valley. As the waters receded, upturned
dwellings, shattered "bundtngs and
crumbled piles of mortar were piled
high about railroad 'bridges and
treat lea.
The Btorm was very severe along
the Mononghela river, southeast of
here. Ihe river and Tts many tributaries Is rising rapidly, -causing Beri-.
ous loss in the Mononghela Valley. A
stage of twenty feet, two feet below
the dinger mark, Is expectectjtoday in

predicted for points 'below, as the
Ohio must reclve the flow Trom both
the Mononghela and Allegheny fivers.

Milwalkee, July 25.���A storm -ap-.
preaching a cloud burst ww��pt
through Northern Wisconsin yesterday, causing floods which carried
away dams and bridges, washed out

Horsemen Saved Lives.
Brownsville. Pa.. July 25���Horsemen dashing frantically down the Red
Stone Valley yesterday, rode nine

London, July 25.���The nationalization of medicine Is suggested as a possible outcome of the doctors' revolt

and on the continent. Apprehensions
over the danger of hostilities arc the
principal cause of the continued fall
in.consols to new low levels every
day or two and of the decline in German Government securities as well as
the bonds of practically every great
European government. It is expected that the British Government will
appoint a commission to consider the
whole problem of dealing with the
consols, but there can not be much
hope that the fall will be stopped unless Germany agrees to restrict her
building or armaments. The First
Lord of the Admiralty's speech haa
made a deep impression throughout
thet country. The universal feeling ls
that everything necessary must be
done to prepare for eventualities. It
is feared war wlll be inevitable if
Germany continues to build battleships at the rate proposed.
Uneasiness over the peace of Eur
ope is heightened by the naval construction activities of Italy and Austria. The condition of Turkey is aggravating present apprehensions.
"Still, it ls hoped that the fact that
tthe preparations of Germany, Austria j
and Italy, the famous Triple Alliance,
incomplete at this stage, will prevent
an early outbreak of war.
The country is much cheered by
Jthe ���announcement that Canada stands

KILLED   BY   CAVE-IN.
Several Men  Lose   Lives While  Digging Ditch.
Quefeec, July 25.���A despatch from
Jonquienes, Que., says that while at
work layiqg.a .pipe iu.a ditch some 20
feet deep at the ney .pulp mills being
erected at K:euognmi, two miles from
there, for Prioe Bros. & Co., a dozen
or mora woriuntm were burled by a
cave-in yesterday afternoon.
A large force of men started quickly to dig out tQseir .companions, and
succeeded ln rescuing .several, whose
escape was due to the fact that they
were protected ky beams, -which prevented the falling-in of the sides. Une
of those brought to the surface was
dead, while two or three others were
mortally injured. The -work of rescue
was continued energetlcailly. and late
last night four men ynare atill burled
of whom only one could ".be heard
speaking. It Is feared Oie cthr three
are dead.
The victims are Italians and Poles,
and were In the employ of tbe Canadian Stewart Company, who are cbn-
structlng the mills. It Is only two or
three weeks since a serious accident
occurred at the same works, which
resulted In tho death of several/rork
men.

Mr. Coutts' Claim to Abeyant Barony
Established.
London, July 26.���The . Committee
on Privileges of the House. of Lords
has decided that Francis Money
Coutts, nephew and heir of the late
Baroness Burdett- Coutts, had definitely established his claim to the bar-
only of Latimer.
Francis Money Coutts,   now   Lord
Latimer, Lord Scales and Lord Badlos-
mere, is tbe son of MrB. James Money
and nephew of the late Baroness Bur-
dolt-Coutts, from whom   he Inherited
her predominant share   ln the  great
banking establishment  of  Coutts, as
well as all of her entailed   property.
The barony for which he has now successfully   established   hie  claim   has
been in abeyance for over 200 years.
The title was originally held by the
house .of  Neville,  from   whom   the
, claimant Is descended on the' distaff
i Bide.   When hls mother, the late Mrs.
i James  Money,   co-heiress   with   the
i Baroness to the barony, was elevated

TEACHER   WENT   MAD.
Ordered Students to Follow Her  Out
* :to Sea.
Copenhagen, July 25.���A woman
leather of swimming went suddenly
mad yesterday. 'While instructing a
lot af girls in 'fhe sea near HelBing-
borg, she suddenly staTted to swim
out to sea and ordered all the girls
to follow "ber to Elsinore, flve miles
away..
ATI obeyed 'but one, who swam to
shore and called for help. Several
motoTOoats hastened to rescue the
girls and picked them up at various
places.
Tbe teacher was picked up just as
she was going down for the third
time near Elsinore. She was taken
asfcere and placed in an asylum.
AMAZON (DUTRAGES.
but
Rafcrbcr Company Is Not   British,
Registered   In   London.
London, Jiily 25.���Sir Conan Doyle,
who championed the cause of the rubber gathering natives of the Congo,
said rn an interview on Sir Roger
Casement'B report respecting the outrages on the Amazon:
"There is an important point to be
considered. Although technlchally a
Britisli company, 'the Amazon company is not in any particular sense a
British company. It was started by
a man of the name of Arana, who
owned aTl this Torest'httfd. He came
over to London aome years ago and
attempted to float a company, but he
couldn't get anyone to invest. Nevertheless, he Tegtstered a company. The
great ljuTk Ot the shares were left on
hls liands and 'he disposed of them
elsewhere. Tbe company, however,
thus became a British company, as It
was registered tn 'London.
"The whole control was Invested In
Arana nlmsell, and 'df -the 'few Englishmen who liafl Shares, one or two
were on (he -board Of 'directors, but
they had ito weans of knowing what
was going coi 'In Bouth America. As
foon aa they learned o'f the outrages
they sent trot their wn representative with Str "Roger Casement, and
thev Joined wTidWlreertedly In trying
to bring the -miscreants to Justice. It
Is very unfair to put It as though it
was a British -company 'that was to
tilame. If we find that 'the -shareholders had anything to do-with these cru-
pities we must punish them, but I
don't think they feed:"

FRWAY, JULY 25, 1912.
TRUTH   PAYS���ALWAYS.
Westminster may congratulate herself upon the fact that it is due to
ber steady! conservative growth and
methods, ot doing business, that her
financial position in the money markets of the old country Is now so enviable. Vie" statement, therefore, of
a prominent Anglo-Canadian financier, now on his way,to tho ccast,
that "pne has now to be in a position
to speak from actual knowledge when
dealing ih Canadian debentures," need
cause ns no- qualms, but rather increase our justiMable pride hi pointing to our record.
There has appeared simultaneously
with the sudden up-growth cf many
of the citie3 of the west and cf the
coast, an excessive discounting; of the
future and a great deal cf b.i.1 advertising. The3e have, combined with
otber miner' causes to bring about
the inevitable if somewhat delayed
result, namely a d&precia'tipn of the
securities of many Canadian cities.
Tho proverb that "good wine r.ced3
co bush" is not applicable to twentieth century conditions, and while we
can hardly go as far as saying with
advertising men that "advertising is
thc mightiest ot all the forces of the
universe," we are entirely in accord
with their statement that "truth in advertising is about the only bafeis for
���continued results from advertising;
therefore, it is an economic element
that overshadows every other consideration."
Westminster is beginning to be advertised mqre now than at any time
during her history. It is highly essential ihat no flagrant exaggeration
��� or misstatement should be allowed to
creep tatA matter affecting this city,
Iter resources, standing or prospects,
1/ we wish to maintain our present
tiifiU standing in monetary circles
which, although thousands-ct mileB
away, have a very shrewd knowledge
of conditions as they are.
Just as cleanliness in sport "pays,"
.so truth in advertising pays also.
average as good wages as do day laborers. Perhaps the case as regards
the amount of salary is not better in
Great Britain; but it cannot be worse,
while cn the other hand, lhe cost of
living is not as great.
However, no matter what the case
is in the old country, It ought to be
better here. As the Montreal Star remarks:
"There Is no doubt that we ask altogether too much of our teachers;
and that we do not pay them enough.
They are doing the most important
work that is being done in the Dominion today. They.are moulding the
citizens of the future, on'whom will
depend the form t<j be taken by our
nat'onal development. Yet we pav
them salaries whieh we would be
ashamed to offer to a carpenter; and
which ho would raiect with contumely
if we did make the. offer."
POULTRY   INDUSTRY.
Government   Offers    Useful    Information tc All.
During the past sess'en of th^ Do-
min'on Parliament. Mr. A. G. filbert.
Poultry Manager at the Central Experimental Farm, gave evidence tie-,
fore the Select Standing Committee
on Agriculture and Colonization on
tho development ef the poultry indpa
try. This evidence, which, inclhdes'.an
address followed by questions put to
Mr. Gilbert and answered by ' him,
has been printed in pamphlet form
for public distribution. The subject
is dealt with under the following
heads: The value of the poultry industry, how the industry is tending,
the attitude cf the farmer towards it.
and the form of development best calculated to helj the farmer.
It is clearly shown that the demand
fer eggs in Canadi has increased
much morn rapidly than the supply
during recent years. In 1902 we exported to Great Britain, eggs to ttife
value of $1,733,242; ntr-e years later,
lhe export.? had fallen to less than a
value of twenty-Aye thousand dollars
while the imports in 1911 reached a
value approaching half x million dollars.
It is pointed out that farmers are
not taking fnll hdVafttape pf tl&e h'g!
prices offered 'for ;.f.ri<:-.ty. TOW-Iald
eggs at all seasons of the year. Uk3
good profits from these .-re beiusj ie*

I witnessed the game in your city

ashamed of our Vancouver team, and
mere especially of their manager, as
he stood there and told his men to
rag, rag, kill time, etc., and a3 I say,
I, as well as a few hundred more was
disgusted. I was much interested ln
the B. C. L. A. meeting and waa not
surprised at Its president's ruling. As
is usual your men always get the
dirty and small end.
I am informed that Mr. Turnbull
(the squares! sport who ever refereed
a game) reported Ions and Griffiths
to the commission fer using obscene
language and no notice v.-a? taken
of it. but it was different, Mr. Editor,
when Reynolds reported Hyland, the

Not only will the total yield be the
largest, but. judging from present
conditions, the yield per acre wfll outstrip all previous yields.
One of the best known agriculturist of Western Canada states that the
harvest of the various crops will take
plane during the following periods:
Barley will commence Aug 1 and be
completed bv Aug. ,0; fall wheat.
Au?. 10 to 25; spring wheat. Aug. 18
to Sept. 10; flax, Aug. 25 to Sept. 10;
oats. Aug. 25 to Sept. 15.
This will put all grains in the BhOCP
by the middle of September, fully
three weeks ahead of the ordinary

He Must Follow His "Natural Bunt"

Authorities tell us that every human beins is so constituted that there
is a particular line of work at whlQJtf
tho indivdual will reach a maximum
of efficiency. The modern tendency
is to provide sucli education for boys
and girls of the farm as will result in
the, majority of them remaining on
the farm. '
However, ft is not in accord with
natural laws or the best interests of
general education for a Government
or the head of any institution to aim
at keeping,ai], far��q J>oy$ on tbe soil
by any iseparation of tbe atrrienlturai
institution that means a discord
amung educational force*.
Principal Black and those who ar:
gued for separation of Manitoba Agricultural College from Manitoba Unl:
this J versity on the plea that such relation*
ship would prevent farm boyg. lrom
giving up the agricultural course in
favor of some other line oi .study,
should ponder what Charles Dickens
has to say about education, in general,
and "the natural bent" in' particular.
Or, better, tbey should have heart}
James L. Hughes, superintendent of
schools for Toronto, at the annual
convention of the Manitoba Teachers'
Association recently, when he spoke
on "Dickens as an Educator." Mention was made of Dickens' opinion of
the fathers ol liis day, who decided
as their children were born into the
world what occupation they should
follow; no regard was given to "the
natural bent."
Dickens realized that no man should
undertake to select a vocation for another. He argued that even fathers
were not capable of choosing a line of
work for their youthful sons, each of
whom had a "natural bent."
Principal Black wisely argues that
it is the object of his collage to send
as many as possible of the sons of
the soil back to the farm; but ��t tha
same time ho makes arrangements to
place as many as possible of the u'rad-
uates in positions away frern their
farms. This is whnt creates -u-picion
as to what is the real objert in separating tlie agricultural college from
the university. ���
If good reason or sound argument
had been put forth, there would lmve
been little or no objection In the
move. However, since a relati n.-hip
was established a lew short years hl'o,
no change should have been mads
without good ami sufficient reason.
At nil events, this is the age nf union
ami harmony of educational interests,
rather than of separation and discord.
Train your sons to be good tar mors

Commissioners and   Vancouver   Club
Notified of Violation of Constitution���May Be Game.
Things have taken a now turn ln
the lacrosse crisis, and from what developed yesterday lt looks as lf the
Vancouver ^club and management w^ll
make one glorloua crawl before Ae
week i3 over.
From the outset of the present
trouble the members of the Westminster executive- have at no time displayed any tendency to worry over
the situation, and while this has occasioned some surprise among many
��f the fans, the real results are just
beginning to be known. Westminster
lias the whip hand of the situation.
Without the Salmon Hellies being
ln the B. C. lacrosse league, the financial standing of the Vancouver
club, and especially that of its manager, will dwindle down on a par with
that feimous Spanish gold treasure
which is always cropping up In different parts of the globe to squeeze the
unsuspecting from  their earnings.
This fact the Vancouver club ls
just getting wise to, hence its preparations for playing the game In Westminster on Saturday afternoon. The
shoe Is pinching'both feet now,- and
yesterday it developed that the green
shirts are putting in a lot of hard
practice and expect to be seen on tho
Queens park grovjnd on the 27th.
Pollowing a consultation between
the executive and the best legal talent oT the city yesterday, letters
*<-re delivered by special messengers to the Vancouver lacrosse club
and the three commissioners calling
(tUention to the violation of the con-
s'.ltution of the association by the
Vnncouver delegates on Tuesday even
Ing when they shoved through a preposterous demand that Saturday's
game be transferred to Vancouver.
ln them it was further staged that
the local executive expect the Vancouver team to play In this city on
Saturday afternoon, falling which
they will claim the-game and also the-
$500 deposit. This will no doubt be
a puzzler to Messrs Jones, Cowan, et
al and should -give tbem plenty of
time to reconsider their decision to
attempt to show the locals Just how
the league "should be run ln this province.
The letter to the club stated that
the motion was contrary to Section
-4. /Article 14 of the constitution In
that It requires the mutual consent
ol both parties before auch tampering with the schedule Is permissible.
The letter to tho three commission's stated that aa the Vaucouver
���cluli and officials bad violated the association's rules, r tho Westminster
��Tub expects Vanoouver to play the
next game In this clly and requests
the commission to appoint tbe referees for th��' game.
This body Is expected to meet some
time today, and It Is likely that It
will necessitate the calling In of Mr.
*D. M. Eberts. the Viotorla member, to
straighten out the tangle.
Meanwhile the Vancouver papers
continue to state that Con Jones has
gone east In search of players to
Form a second team In Vancouver.
To any sane minded person this proposition is regarded as a Joke. Does
It appear reasonable that any one ot
the managers of both the Big Four
and the H. L. V. teams will stand ttf
lose any of their players just at a
time when the championship ot the
two leagues remains in doubt ? Does'
It atand to reason that any of the
players iu the east wlll be tempted to
come to the wild amd woolley just for
the sake of six guinea, and the prospect of being flred at the end. of the
��eason ?
ttofes it stand to reason that Jones,
after building up a team at great outlay will add to his expense account
hy forming another team when the
Vancouver people wlll at once doubt
the integrity of the move ? The Vancouver Lacrosse club and the Recreation Pn-^k Amusement company are
practically one and the same. It
would ba a pretly sight to see the
Vancouver public turning over their
bard earned bones just for tho purpose of witnessing two teams play'.nr
nnd?r the same management.
The wcrd "frame-up" has been
heard several times In connection
with the relations cf the Westminster
nnd Vnncouver teams, and this little
���prap ha* demonstrated that Buch an
utteraneo is false.

Mr. Jones to tho east ls as good a
mirage as one could Imagine. His

ship of the league. It.was not ani
easy victory, however, and due praise '
must be given to the West Ends for |
thelr^ sterling work,, not only last I
iiiglu, but throughout the season. '
Starting, as they d!d, with practically a new line-up,    the West lenders
threw a scare Into the other teams
from  the outset, and should give    a
good account of themselves next season.    But.after all, the credit is due
to the Sapperton  boys'. -They have
clearly demonstrated their superiority
ove* the other three    teams    in    the I
league, and their jubilation was shown 1
to good effect later   in   the   evening
when Columbia street was turned in-'
to a regular college thoroughfare by j
their yells and war cries.   ���
The word, had gone around that:
aome stellar lacrosse was to be staged,
and one of the largest crowds of the
season greeted the two teams as they
took thc fleld. The battle staged
with a rush, and both defences were !
tested before many minutes had'gone
by, Bert Johnson demonstrating his
shooting ability, by bulging thernet on
two occasions ln the first quarter.      j
In the second period Roy McDonald '
tallied the flrst for the West   End3
and play was fast and furious throughout.   Two minutes of play ln'the third
quarter saw    Storjne    equalize    "
score with a close-In shot 'and
citement reigned supreme.
In the fourth period the .teams appeared   to   be equally   matched,   and
seme brilliant plays were pulled off.j
First one  team  and  then the other]
v.-onifl gather .the boll and the stick j
wlelders work themselves in. but the
stonewall defence of both cujjodlans
generally kept them in check,
Storme had an open goal af.or threa
minutes of play but shot wide. Louts
Sangitcr a minute later missed an'
easy one and on" the replay, Bert Johnson sent his team ahead -with a
pretty side shot.
Both goal tenders were at thetr
best, the Sapperton boy having the
most work to do. With a few minutes
to play, several of the pliyers exhibited .a desire to mix things, hut
Harry Hyland, who had charge of the
game, looked upon It as equally divided, nnd had no occasion to Send a
man .off.
Tha West Ends certainly had the
better qf the play during the last
period, but their home division op-J
poured to be nervous when shooting
and missed many an opportunity to
get even.
The victors w����) given a great ovation when the final whistle sounded.
and while there w��re many who wished the Weat Ends to win, so that the
two teams would be ttcM for top
place, the victory of the blue shirts
appeared to be a popular one. ;
. Late last evening the player! who
have wom the Sapperton colors during the past three years got together
and Issued a challenge to any team In

Patchell even making it so .sweeping
as to defy an all-star team of the i

Behind the temple sacred to the

Hints   For   tho   Woman   Who   Loves
Flowers.
ln tbe spring plants and ferns growing indoors begin to nfake fresh
growth, and quite u number need repotting. ��� ���������* ��
Many plants In warm rooms also begin to put out fresb shoots.
If such plants are repotted tbey generally Improve very mucb ln growth.
But trntne people do not know tbe
right way to go to work,, and sometimes the plant dies in consequence of
repotting.
The great thing to remember Is not
to hurt the roots.   'Turn the plant out
07 its old pot and shake oft' or scrape I
away any grit tliat comes easily.
But If the plant has n tlgbt bail of
roots, with soil (irmly wedgeil between
tbem. It 'Is tietter not to disturb tbls.
but merely to use a larger pot for it.
Take your new pot. which should be
clean and dry. cover the hole at tbe ij
bottom   wltb  a   broken  crock.   hollow-
Bide downward  and  cover  tuts again
wttb a tew smaller pieces. \
Tben put in u little fresb soil at the
bottom and place the-plant uprigbt on
this. Fill in nil round with fresb uoii
and ram It in tirmly with a wedge-
shaped piece of wood.
Very small pots, however, only nee*
to nave the soli made tirm by pressing wltb ibe bngers. A rim an inch
deep should be left- between tbe top of
tbe pot and tbe soil of a tive lucb pot
After repotting plants should alwaya
be watered and kept for a day or two
In a rather wanner place than usual.
Never use sour, exhausted soil from
tbe garden for repotting, but get good
flne lonm. A small quantity of this
can be bought nt any good nursery. It
should, when used, be Just moist
enough io cling together, but uot wet
or sticky.
If there Is s leaf heap In yonr garden some of the most decayed of tills
may be mixed with tbe soil ut the bottom of tue pot.
.Bolting soil should always have a
little course sand mlxefl wltb It, as tbls
betps to keep it sweet.

WEET  ALL   M-_NACE
London, July 25.���In tne' navai fist|.
mates debate today ln u,a House of
Commons, Wlr^^n spencer Churchill, First r>rt of the Admiralty,^replying to.tho criticism that he had
made . Inadequate provision to meet
the tnenace he had described, said:
"We are spending ��45,000,000
($2254)00,000) this year, and we are
going to spend mare next year. We
are raising the personnel of the navy
to 141,150 by 1913, and to 146,000 in
1914. '
As regards construction Germany
this year is lying down two new battleships, and we four. Next year Germany is laying down one extra, and;
we two.
This year Germany iB laying down
two small cruisers; we are laying
down eight. Germany in the course
of the next 18 months is laying down
21 destroyers; we 43.
There, is. po cause for panic or
alarm."
Since then a 'further serious  decline
has still to be recorded.
"It has to be remembered that a decline in the value bf securities yielding a comparatively low return, ha;
not   been   confined   to   our   countr.
alone.   Thus we find that the fall In
value of the British Government se

pared with    the end   of June, ' 9v*2
amounted to 2 3-4 per cent; '    -'* **;

A Japanese Decoration.
Speaking of'New Year's celebrations
in Japan, the Traveler's Gazette says:
"Before each house entrance stand
two pines, on the right a red stemmed
one and on the leit a black pine.
Beside the pine trees stand slender
bamboo canes, and the trees are joined above with a festoon of paper
fringe and straw rope, ornsmeijted-
with yellow, bitter oranges, bits of
charcoal, lobsters and large bunches
of red berries. Ths decoration ia supposed to bring good luck."
Cooked In a Knapsack.
Charles XII. of Sweden invented the
first portable military tireless cooker.
He had a knapsack lined with hay to
strap to a soldier's back. When starting on a march a big chicken was
split open and the inside dressed clean
and then filled with butter. In the
chicken was placed a small cannon
ball of hot iron. The. hot cooking
chicken ,wa3 then placed; in the. hay
knapsack. Wben the camp was pitched at evening the meat was delicious-
ly cooked and all soaking in butter.
