MAY DAY FESTIVAL
READY TOR FRIDAY
Mr. J. J. Johnston Will Act as M. C.
in Unavoidable Abaence of Mr.
J. J. Cambridge.
A meeting of the May Day committee was held last night when lt was
leported that everything was as last
week befoie the postponement. A
question was raised as to the possibility of getting the children of the
surrounding districts here for the
festival and lt was suggested that the
secretary telephone the school authorities today, requesting that they
he allowed to attend.   It was also re
in this matter, but It Is a source   of ] ported that last Friday morning the
intense gratification to myself, and,
I am sure, to the city as a whole, that
there are sufficient men of energy
and, I might say, patriotism, who have
made their homes here, to institute
movements such as the formation of
the National Reserve and the United
Service club ln Westminster."
Witli these words his worship the
mayor yesterday greeted the committee representative of the different
aims of the services composing the
National Reserve which was started
under such auspicious conditions on
Tuesday evening.
'The members of the National Reserve are deceiving of the * highest
commendation. They have remem-
bcied their old allegiance���not that
they were ever likely to' forget it,���
but this movement brings together
numbers of men sharing that same-
allegiance. The National Reserve
movement, which, as you slate, ls in-
dted simplicity itself, is still of the
vWy greatest import to the country
looked at dom many points of view,
not least fiom tha; of the defensive
I c-.n assjre you that I shall onl.v be
too ;lease.l to taVe change of tlie roll
of names, ani I trust that within a
rhoit time i: will contain tiie names
and iiiidresses of eiery past soidicr,
sailor or member of the auxiliary
fores now living wIPliln the bounds
of Westminster ancl  the district."
The mayor stated that all men
olif.-i:i���*��� were Inrttci to come to the
city bail and theie lsave thalr namer
with the city eler :, Mr. W. A. Duncan,
v.ho an old s-iHIer himrelf. h��s contented to register the men. He will
iilso take at ens to acquaint tha mllKla
department with what New Westminster has done towards tho formation
of a National Reserve fnr Canada,
Those Eligible for th? National Rescue arc sailors, marines, soldiers
militiamen, yeomanry, volunteers or
lenitotials, who have coinileted their
term3 of service. They will register
their names at the cltv hall, but by so
dolir; do not render themselves liable
for service of any description. It is
a movement fimply to keep a record
of these men. wbo, trained to arms
and all that that means, might on
oi 'osion of dire national peril be at>-
jeiled to for aid. Without a record
of them being kett the Individual
members are lost sight of.
Lis worship assured the delegation
that the movement would grow, ft
was a great honor to the city to be
the flrsl to begin It in Canada, and he
hoped that the men wAuld eome forward so that It mleht poon be said
that the cltv and district possessed
at least a thousand men in the National Reserve.
people of Millside telephoned In to
ask If the festival was to be held and
were notified that It had been postponed. This was proof of the wide
Inteiest taken ln the affair.
Mr. J. J. Cambridge reported that
on account of the assizes being held
In the city at this ti ne he wouid be
unable to act as master of ceremonies.
It was moved by Chief Watson that
the past master of ceremonies, Mr. J.
J. Johnston, take the office, and it was
so agreed as lie had had experience.
At the suggestion of Mr. D. E. MacKenzie, Mr. W. A. Gilley was persuaded to accompany him. It was
lhe opinion of Mr. MacKenzie that
someone ought to become used to the
position for the beneflt of future festivals.
The publicity committee reported
in tbe person of Mr. P. W. Lu;e on
the awarding of the prices for decora-
lions, the results of which havo already been published. It was also announced that the first prize, the Dally
News cup, was nov on exhibition at
P. Burns. A orb* will be awarded to
tiie best decorated a itomobile ln the
parade, tiio Judging to be left in the
hand! of the publicity committee.
It is likely that the next celebration
will he held on May 1, because of the
experiences of the past few years. No
uction was ta'en In the matter last
nirhf. that heir:' left until next year,
but It was rointcd out Ihat very often

that theie were -moro rainy Fridays

Nelson Raises Awkward Question for

Returned with Apolcgics.
Wcid comes from Nel.on that ac-
OOr.Mn; to the amended version of
the Municipal Clauses act no ma-or
of any city with a smaller population
than 20.(1(10 can receive any remuneration for his services. Accordingly the
despatch says that Nelson's mayor
who has received $1200 a year ever
since the city's Incorporation In 1897
la now without a salary.
If this report were trie, lt would,
of course, apt ly to Weatmlnster, and
Mayor Lee would have to be content
with tho bare honor of his position
as head of the city. The general understanding, however, of the amended act was that cities of less than 20,-
000 population had no power to increase the salaries of their mayors
bevond what they were at the time
of tho passing ot the amendments. It
may be that when the peonlo of Nelson come to loo'c closer Into the matter they will come to the same conclusion, but on the otber hand It Is
possible that the wise men of Nelson

London. Mny' 8.���Notts secured a
surprisingly easv victory today over
the visiting Aiistr-'ilnn crloket team
by six wlclteta. This waa the flrst
game plnyed between on English
county eleven and the visitors from
1he Antipodes, the latter only having
arrived a few days previous to the
opening day of the match.
Alberni. May 8.���The rivalry between Old Alberni and Port Alberni
eame to a head when some wild
s; irits of the latter town carried off
the Canadian Highway post in tha
dark of night from its site at the foot
of Johnson road in Old Alberni. and
planted it In the main business thoroughfare of their own city.
Both towns had been eager ln their
attempts to secure the post for themselves, ebut the road conditions made
It Imperative that the planting ceremonies take place at old Alberni. Consequently there was some heart-burning among the enthusiastic supporters of the new town, but they bore
their disappointment with a good
grace, attended the ceremonies ln
force and made themselves good fel-
.lows, everywhere.
This last escapade was the act of a
few irresponsible members of the new
tnwn, it is supposed, and while It lias
caused much laughter, little lH-feelinr;
has been created. On waking up on
the morning after, Mayor Waterhousc
hastily summoned tbe council and
ordeied that the post be returned
with suitable apologies. This was accordingly done and here the Incident
ends.
VERDICT NOT QUILTY.

After being out for three hours the
Jury brought in a verdict of not guilty
ln the case of Alexander McKenzie
charged wdth robbery with violence.
iMr. W. F. Hansford appeared for the

After Knight had been cross-examined by the defence, and Sergeant

been made, the motor owned by the
B. C. E. R. which pumps the water

Taken as a whole, very li:tle complaint Is made at present conditions
the residents realizing the fact that
the council is doing Its utmost tc
alleviate the want in anv way '~os-
slble. Instead of trying to complete
the whole system befoie turning on
the full supply from the Soymour
creek basin, the waterworks engineers
are rushing the work of laying an
eighteen inch malu across the municipality, from the North Burnaby district ta Edmonds. A delay has. occurred cn account of the council being compelled to C*ln the right '.(
rvn thio.igh certain prorerty with the
[ires, but this having been granted,
onlv a mile and a half of pipe remains to be laid before the water can
be sent from the North Burnaby rese-
voir.
The roads through which the main
will be laid have been cleared In advance by the day labor gangs, and It
remains fo',' the contractors to complete the installation of the trunk
main. Tbis Is expected to take six
weeks to do, nnd until then, the residents are asked to bear with the council in the piesent conditions now prevailing.

Commendation of Indian Commissioner Robert G. Valentine for his
order that in government schools all
insignia of any religious order be removed and that those wearing a distinctive church garb lay such aside
while engaged in government duties,
was given In a resolution adopted by
the general conference of the Methodist Episcopal church today.
The tesolutlon urges that "as the'
president, at the solicitation of a certain ecclesiastic, directed that the o'.'-
der of the commissioner be suspended
pending a future hearing, which hearing was held on Aprll 8, tho same now
be enforced." Secretary of the Interior Fisher put the order Into Immediate effect Instead of withholding
his decision untll August 1, as he had
announced.
The conference also took action as
follows; lt adopted a resolution preventing election to any office of tbe
general conference of any man who
jses tobacco In any form;
Adopted the Rice resolution declaring that the Methodist Episcopal
church would prosecute mission work

PROGRESS CLUB
EXECUTIVE BUSY
Work of Perfecting Organization   Ad-
vancea���Work to Be Centralized
���Five Hundred Members.
Tbe work of organizing the Progress
club, or Westminster Progressive association as It Is technically known,
was advanced several steps at the
flrst meeting of the executive held
last night. The secretary and president wore appointed, a committee to
draw up a constitution and several
lesoiutlons were passed with regard
to certain items lo be Incorporated
therein. One of these was to alve
power to committees to add to tnelr
numbers.
The executive also recommended
that the entrance fee be fixed at $10
payable In four quarterly payments
of $2.50 each. Two new committees
will be appointed, namely, an agricultural and an Industrial committee,
which wdll be expected to take u0
these lmpor:ant blanches of work
very acti\ely.
Arrangements were made to centralize the work as much as possible
so that intercommunication between
the di.Teient committees and the different members of each committee
may be facilitated.
E\eryone present seemed embued
with a determination to keep busy ln
the interests of the city. Membership cards will be printed at once
and it ls hoped to secure flve hundred
members almost Immediately. Over a
hundred, names are aheady assured
and if every one of these will secure
four more a fine beginning will be
made. Various publicity schemes were
discussed, the most ambitious of
which were left over for later consideration as the question of funis
at once became important. Some of
the work will, however, go ahead at
once.
Finally the committee adjourned till
ue.rt Tuesda'% when it will consider
the constitution iii detail ani prepare a rsport for thc general meet-
in?.

Committee  Working  Quietly���Intend:
ts Make Exhibition Best on
Record. ���
Quietly and unobtrusively plans are
being fashioned for the various departments of the exhibition which will
take place in the fall, and there seems
to be no doubt that this event will
rank as tbe best ever yet held in the
Royal City.
There was a meeting on Tuesday of
the committee which haa in hand tke
special features of attraction to be
provided for the delectation of the
visitors. This committee, composed
of Messrs. A. E. Sherriff, T. J. Armstrong, W. A. Gilley, D. E. MacKenzie
and Alderman Kellington, considered
and discussed a very large number of
proposals of various natures. A selection of those attractions which were
considered to be tbe most suitable
was made, and this will now be presented to the whole committee for Its
approval both as regards the selection
and the appropriation to cover the
cost.
The idea Is to get as much attraction as possible for the entertainment
of the public without going to too
large an expense.

officer of the Torontos, and lf necessary the Scarboro Beach management
will send a sherl.T to bring Lalonde
back from the coast to face the

grounds to bring the Cornwall home

Mount   Blackburn    Expedition   Meets
With   Great    Difficulties.
Cordova, -Alaska, May 8.���Three
men of the Dora Keen's Mount Blackburn exre Ution returned to Kenne-
cctt yesterday to obtain a new supply of alcohol and provisions, ths
party's stores having become exhausted.   The alcohol is used for cooking.
The main party is in camp. In tents
at an altitude of 12.0CO feet on the
mountain, and when the three men
left, the climbers had been waiting
ten days for the abatement of a
frightful storm. The men with their
fresh supplies-will depart for the main
cainn tomorrow. They fear that tbe
expedition will bo unsuccessful owing
to the mild winter and the early opening of spring. Already man.- avalanches have dashed '.'own thn moun
tainside, making the ascent slow and
perilous, All of the party are well.
There is a feeling of disappointment
but all the members of the expedition share Miss Keen's determinaiion
to reach the summit if tbe feat ls
possible. Miss Keen, who is a member of a distinguished Philadelphia
family, sailed from Seattle April 10,
to undertake the conquest of the
great Copper River peak, which is 16,-
140 feet high.

GORGEOUS CEREMONIES
MARK ANNUAL CONCLAVE
Los Ant-eles, Cal., May 8.���Three
gorgeous street pageants such as have
never been equaled ln Los Angeles
marked the formal opening yeste--
day of the 3Sth annual conclave of
the imperial council of the Mystic
Shrine. The first parade, escorting
��� he Imperla] officers and delegates to
the Scottish rite cathedral for the
opening of ihe council this forenoon
was a brilliant spectacle. A half
hundred gorgeously garbed Arab patrols took part and imperial officers
said that it was the greatest turn out
of jairols ln the history of the
shrine.
Two more parades, one an electrical
pageant and the other composed of
temples and patrols, wended tlieir
way in opposite directions through I
the main portion of the city, to tho
cheers of miles of spectators ,vho |
were massed a dozen or more deep on
either side of tha street.
Two business sessions of the imperial council we:e held today and the
first was one of welcome and rasponse
bv local Shriners and visiting officials. In lhe afternoon routine business was transacted after which it
was voied lo grant tenipls charters ti'.

eently been prepared In, and is now
heing issued from the railway lands
branch of the Department of the Interior. This publication which is
known as the Peace River or Northern Alberta Homestead )Map, graphically illustrates by a comparatively
simple system of coloring the land
situation in that country, including,
as It does, complete Information with
respect to the disposal- of lands, lo-
-atlon of timher berths and forest reserves, nature or the soil, etc. An interesting feature of the color scheme
is the fact that lt enables an observer
to procure at a glance a complete
grasp of the present land situation,
not only with regard to those lands
whicli have been taken up during the
last year, but also with respect to
lands previously homesteaded but for
which patents have not yet been issued, thus also enabling a person to
trace the pioeresp during recent
years, or settlement ln the Peace
liver distiict. The aim ln the preparation of the map has" been to show
the land situation up to the beginning
of the urtsent year and in view of the
rapid exhaustion of free homesteads
Mironehout the older prairie provinces
the information should prove of particular interest  to  settlers.
In addition to the Information with
respect to lands which have been
'ome?teaded and otherwise 'isposed
of, the publication contains complete
information regarding postofflces,
railways, topography, etc.
Copies may be obtained free of
charge upon application to the Superintendent of Railway Lands, Department of the Interior, Ottawa.

�� FOR GOVERNMENT ELEVATORS,
lion. George Bf Foster, ministor or
Trade nnd Commerce, has wiitten to
the Vancouver Board of Trade for Information bearing on the building ol
a 'government elevator on Burrard Inlet. That Is as lt should be. But to
���roller! KiitXiglyut, data to form any
conclusion on'the suliject, llie government might 'ftfld It worth while to
write also to the authorities on the
FYaser lor information. Victoria, too,
would irobiihly like to join in the
correspondence, aid perhaps Prince
itujiert. All these places certainly
have a right to be consulted and we
venture lo state that when tho advantages ol' all are compared those of
the Fraser river will prove to be superior to all others.
P.unard Inlet is a flne salt-water
harbor. It is'spuclou; and deep, but
it does not belong to Vancouver. The
bulk of the waterfront is in the hands
of private interests, an:! here nt the
very start is una most Important point
where Westminster is more fortunate than her rivals. This city owns
its own waterfront, lt can do what it
likes with it and it can encourage
shipping atld ! Industries by placing
that waterfront at their disposal on
reasonable terhns.
To drop comparisons, which should
never lie allowed to get odious, it can
toe flatly stated.tfcat Westminster has
the oniy real!/' good ancl   important
fresh-water harbor on the mainland of
I
British Columbia. The cleanlag properties of freVh' Water on the ship's bottom and the absence of the teredo
that very lajkily destroys wharves
built in salt water on this coast, ate
inestimable advantages of the Fraser
ri ver.
Besides these points there exist on
the Fraser facilities for industrial development that practically can not be
found elsewrjj-c^ie; in the province.
There is also1 nrilnnited scope for railway development.
All this nature has done for the
Iioit. It is -now time for man to do
liis part. With the vast improvements
contemplated Iif, the city harbor
scheme Westminster will without
���tloubt be the spot where government
<elevators could be built to the most
advantage, It is sincerely to be ho;:ecl
tbat. the council's requost forwarder
*.o Ottaivu on the subject will bear
sood f. -;it. i; should now be the part
���ot every other organization in the
cily, such as tiio Board of Trade and
tlie Process '(lu!>, to back up this request with all the weight tbey can
bring to hear itHts support.
TJANGERSirOF   PROSPERITY.
Agnes   Uut   Tel|8    Canada    to    Be
Careful.
"X&u have a-great country up bere,
a tremendous country, one developing
with Incredible rapidity. Nothing can
harm you but .OMY own folly." These
words were spoken to The Winnipeg
Tribune hy Miss Agnes C. Laut, a
New York literary lady of Winnipeg
extraction, who is slaying at the Hoyal Alexandra. Miss Laut Is in tlie
west cn a private trip, staying off lor
a day or t.vo at the principal point?;
and fc-lrdving 11.e land for articles.
Miss Laut s?es the greatest danger
to llie prosperity now enjoyed by thia
country in tl# oi.cning of the Pan ma
canal, "Thai won! I mark one of ihe
most colossal booms ever experienced, and the danger western Canada bul in Ihat direction to guard
������j-.iiinM was that the flood of wealth,
population ami prosperity would be
subverted In that direction. The lirst
i siai will pass tbrough in 191 '.." she
Bays, "and ln 11)15 the formal opening
will ta"c place," ahe regards this as
o ::��� of tiie commercial events of mod-
��ith times an 1 warns wcsicrn Canadians that they must have an tinsull-
ed reputation in ihe markets of the
world and among- the immigrants of
the 1'niird States and the older lands
if ih"y would retain the flood of
wealth and settlers now pouring into
tin- prairies of the west. She had
talked to many realty men and bank-
vis in ihe west and in the east, and
they expressed themselves as uneasy
��ii the outcome of-the wide-open Hood
-gates of prosperity here.
Eye of thc World on West.
Miss Laut says: "The eye of the
world Is on you. Yon are making won-
���derrul, almost incredible progress.
Your values are high and investors
��of tbe east are blind lo the wonderful
possibilities of ihe country. While
the. values of your lands are sound in
thc hearts of your cities, some of
your besi real estate men are protesting against the selling of remotf
Hot ��� which have no vai ie except tlio
wonii of hay tliey grow and possibly
ue\er will be wotth anything else.
Reaction  Will   Come. ��� -
"The reaction of auch enterprise on
large and legitimate business Interests is boun.l to hurt the west. Thlt
country Is In danger of the same erroi
as that whicli afflicted Chicago forty
years ago. Your realty men and
others embarked on legitimate business reel strongly that your western
communities should organize to pro
toct themselves against unsound offerings or undertakings.
"The time when the danger or mak
lng bad erto's Is trentest is when r-
man or a country Is prosperous. Some
:tre very caref.il not to make errors:
wlion really hard up, Your country
Is making sut-h tremendous strides in
its development, settlers are pourinj
ln trom all quartan; experienced farmers are coming in from tho United
States at the rate of 150,000 a year
and with an average capital of jllHK
a piece, that you hnve to be very care
ful...,     ....
Danger of the Canal.
"I liave been working on the Panama canal for years. The day that it
opens will be an 111 day for Canada
if her values are Inflated and if thc
investing and home-seeking public
have lost confidence in the country.
When u man hu3 bean swindled he re
ports it to his bankers and whei:
these complaints accur. late thd coun
try gets In lo bad odium. Tbis country will need every resource It ha?
und every kind worl that can bo said
about It,i and complete public confl
dence to stall it over the dark days
that must ensue for lt when the great
canal is opened.
'Panama Is going to experience one
of the most colossal booms known tc
history. The rails of the continent
would be diverted north and south Instead of oast and west. Wheat, lumber and coal, all now transposed b.v
freight, woull be senl by water.
Plana aro unanimous for the divert
ing of the whole traffic southwest,
and lt .will be wise for the northwest
lo give itself no black eye. Tbere are
thre? big transcontinental systems
going east and west which have al-
cady bought terminals on tbe Pan
ama. New Orleans has spent $16,
000,000 on a steamship service. From
Seattle to Sandy Eagle $150,000,00',
have been spent, on harbor Improvement alone, and much has been spent
on publicity schemes, progressive
clubs and the like. This money has
already been spent and there arc
many iiiillions moio yet to be spent.
Fcl'ies of Prosperity.
Tbo United States is noy,- paying
for its own folly in prosperous years
It is paying interest on watered
stocks anil on the extravagances of
past years. The whole river if immigration has been directed to western
Canada. The whole Dominion is
dunk witli prosperity. Bankers look
at the huge railway schemes you are
uarantceing and wonder if you will
ever be called upon- to take them
over. Your progress is indeed perfectly astonishing, but you must put
the brakes on or there will come a
fearful crash later.
Winnipeg has grown greatly; I lost
myself twice heie. yesterday. The
spirit of the people here is beautiful
the scenery is magnificent. All are
buoyant and hopeful, but in prosperity is the time to guard against the
crash tliat must inevitably follow
grsat prosperity and heedless extrava
ganee."
JOKES   ON   HOMEYMOONERS.
Old as the HMls���Practised the World
Over.
Pia; ing jokes on honeymconers is
a pastime antedating civilization it
self. With increase of perspicacity
however, it develops into an art. The
twentieth century a,wain, haying woo-
9.1 and won his lady fair, discovers
that "getting away with it"���"it" be
ing the bride���is a more perplexing
proposition than the vernacular
rbrase generally implies.
At this juncture, for some reason or
other, every one of his kith, kin and
acquaintance who happens to consid
er himself gifted as a joker gets busy
to tbe end that the first hours of
double harness shall be fraught with
anything but that blissful tranquility
ihat Is supposed to be the highest
���doaj of matrimonial blessedness, says
the Scrap Book. It Is in that brief
period between the conclusion of the
marriage ceremony ancl the commencement ol the honeymoon that
the practical joker come3 into his
own.
Separation'and kidnapping may he
garded as the pinnacle of tbe honeymoon-baiters ambition. In tbe carrying out of his plant he sticks at nothing an I respects nothing and nobody.
Great Is his glee if he can invoke
the law as an alder and abettor.
Not very long ago two people In
prosperous circumstances were wedded in an up-state city of New York. It
vvas B rftther fashionable wedding,
with an Imposing array of groomsmen, a beauteous bevy of bridesmaids, Horal decorations, newspapei
reporters and tbe usual trlmmln-ss.
Towards ihe close of the reception
one of the groomsmen Bought qui tht
plain clothes detective who wai
guarding Ihe presents, V.e was plain
ly in a gieat state of perturbation, lie

FAMINE   SCENES   IN   CHINA
ARE   GRAPHICALLY   TOLD
The day was balmy an.l beautiful
as we lode across the plains; it
might easily be one of the garden
spots of China or of the world.
We made our way into the small
town of Yukou and were faced with
facts that, began to give a different
impression. The street was crowded,
that is comfortably filled at any rate:
j'ut almost eveiy sh9p was closed-
There was not a thing for sale In the
town but a little something to eat.
and very little of that . Here woul
be a shop with perhaps a dozen caker
of bread; another with ten cents
worth of salt; another with a half a
bushel of rice; altogether theie was
not exposed to view enough in the
whole town to feed for one meal thc
nowd which was actually on the
stieet.
We saw scores of houses fiorr
which the roofs had been taken and
the rafters cariied away. I do noi
think any one could go through that
experience and be thc? same person-
1 am sure I felt ten >ears older In
ten hours. These people were not
beggars; I have been accustomed to
beggars; we had 76,000 In Nanking
the first winter I lived there. One
pities them, but there seems about
even the best ot them something professional. These were not. Tboy did
not ask for anything. Except for the
moan of a child, and now and then
the bursting forth of the cry of one
woman, they were quiet. Silently
the great waters had during the summer risen over their fields; silently
the famine has entered their homes:
silently wlll come the typhus and the
famine fever: and silently as the fate
that overwhelms them, they wait
Iheir doom.
All life seems different since then.
One's philosophy of life and of pain
receives an awful wrench. And especially when one thinks of the fact
that to save these people from 'oath
is not a matter of carrying paupers
for a number of years'; it Is Just for
'he next few months. It only tikes
about sixty cents (gold) to bridge for
one of Ib.ese people the chasm of thc
mined crop to the bursting grain.

THE   SOUTHPAW   QUESTION.
Doc White, the left-hand pitcher 0."
the Chicago White So:;, h::s a convincing answer for the everlasting
Itiestlon: "Why can't a left-hand bat-
ter successfully bit a southpaw
I wirier?"
White's answer to the query was:
"It's the simplest thing in the aorld.
Tbe majority of pitchers in the big
leagues are right-handed, are they
net? When you'were a kid and played on lots, the majority of pitchers
then Wj��re right-ban .led, were thoy
not?
"Admitting that, isn't it reasonable
to assure that a ball player fiom bis
earliest days to the time he gets Into
the big leagues, hits against right-
handed pitchers twice as often as he
does against southpaws? Well, that's
the answer and that's all there ls to
it.
If the big leagues Bhould decide to
cairy half a dozen left-handed pitchers and only one or two right-hand-
ers, you would fin 1 that in the course
of a very, short time all these fellows
who cannot hit left-handed pitchers
would soon be able to solve the port-
side shoots. Take Ty Cobb, for instance," says White. "I used to )lke
to pitch against him when ho first
broke into the American league. He (
was the easiest kind of a proposition
for me. Hut now���well, I can't fool
him any more, and po left-hander
can; I don't care who he ls. It is
claimed that Vean Gregg, the Cleveland southpaw, wus the only man
who coulJ swerve u'> something. Ty
couldn't hit last season. This may
be true, but you can gamble that If
Gregg slays in tlie American league
very long, Cobb will be able to get
him."
THE KITCHEN DRESSER.
It Waa Originally a Bench on Whieh
Meat Waa Dressad.
Dr. Johnson tells us thut tbe kitchen
dresser was a bench in tbe kitchen on
wbicb meat wns dressed or prepared
for table and gives the following lines
ln support of bis view:
'Tis burnt, and so ia all the meat
What doga ara tbesa?   Where la tha rascal cook?
How durat you, villains, brln* It from tha
dresser
And serve thua to me that lova It not 7
-Shakespeare.
A maple dresser In her hall she bad,
On which full many a slender maal she

���Dryden.
Wright in bis "Domestic Manners of
the Middle Age8" says: "One of the
great objects of ostentation In a rich
man's bouse waa bis plate, which at
dinner time be brought forth and
spread on the table In sight of bis
guests. Afterward to exhibit tbe plate
to more advantage the table was made
with shelves or steps, on which tbe different nrtjcles could be arranged ln
rows, one above another. It waa called
In French, or Anglo-Norman, a dres-
solr, because on it the different articles
were dressed or arranged."
It Is tbla to which the modern poet
refers:
The pewter plates on the dresser
Caught and reflected the flame aa shields
of armlea the sunahlne.
The executive of tbe B. C. L. A.
lias already secured tbe names of
three gentlemen who have consented
to act in the capacity of referee If
wanted. These are C. St.v John, a
woll known Easterner who is now residing in Vancouver; Bob Cheney and
Alec Turnbull, the latter two hailing
from this city. These names, to
whicli may be at'ded several others,
will be presented lo the lacrosse commission, which will govern the game
in tbis province this coming season.
With the coming arrival of Messrs.
.lontiH and Harr from their long Jaunt
to the East In search of players, lt ia
probable that a meeting of the B. C.
L. A. will be called for some evening this week, the meeting to be held

LACROSSE  COMMISSION.
Toronto, May 8.���A lacrosse commission is certain for 1913. President
Percy Quinn of the Dominion Lacrosse Association, stated this morning that after an interview wdth Con
Jones ln the King Edward Hotel on
Saturday, he would not oppose a commission, but he was not prepared at
the present to discuss the matter.
This means that the coast magnate
Is waiting for the Big Four to reopen negotiations for a commission.
President Quinn stated this would be
done after tbe close of the present
season. The N. L. U. and Middle
West will also be provided for when
the commission Is formed.
It Is understood that the commission will be formed along the lines
of tbe baseball commission, that ls to
suy, no salary limit will be -placed on
the. big leaguers, though clauses will
be Inserted which will make it Impossible for the players to jump contracts and dicker with two clubs.
Universal playing rules will be
brought uo, together with regulations
undei- which the Minto Cup will be
competed for.
"I have not considered for a moment bringing McDougall and McGregor back from the coast," stated
Charlie Querrie this morning, "and I
am satisfied with the way my new
home Is working out. I expect Tommy Gorman ��here on May 15."
PRESENCE OF MIND.
The Way Two Englishmen Captured
Four Hundred Prisoners.
Toward tbe close of tbe peninsular
war 400 prisoners were captured by
Jqbu Colborue. afterwnrd Field Marshal Lord Seaton. Colborne, who Was
wounded at Talavera, bad been disabled for some time, but In 1813 be
was lu active service again, and wben
Wellington's army crossed tlie frontier
into France be performed what was indeed tbe most amazing feat of hls career.
Wben riding, with no comrade but
tbe famous Sir Henry Smith, separated
from his column, he saw 4IK) French
soldiers passing along a ravine below
blm. "Tbe only way was to put a good
face ou the matter," be. wrote. "So I
went up to tbem. desiring tbem to surrender. Tbe olUcer, thinking, of course,
the column was behind me. surrendered bis sword, saying theatrically, 'Jo
vous rends cette epee. qui a blen fait
son devoir.' (1 surrender this sword,
wbich bas done Its duty well.) The
400 followed bis example."
Sir Henry Smith used to declare that
he bnd never seen such cool presence
of mind as Colborne displayed on tbla
occasion.���London Spectator.

In a few weeks one of the old landmarks ot the city will be a thing of
the past. Tho old Hendry house is

large plot of land that went wtth It

Ash street was extended through it,
and lanes as well.      , ���
The old house was built over thirty
years flgo by a man named Dean, it
soon came into the hands of Mr. John
Hepdry, who occupied lt until a short
tlmo ago. Tbo houso was very strong-
lc built aud finely finished, and Its
size and position overlooking the
river made lt consticuous. The house
was bought by i\!r. H. Gilley. Part of
It has been moved to add to his own

"I was exhibiting the only white
elephant erer seen ln the western

his book, "Seventy Years a Showman,"
"when I was honored by a visit from

After tbe performance I conducted tbe
prince tbrough tbe stables and showed
blm all tbere was to see. When we
came to the "white elephant' stall his
royal highness suddenly turned to me
aud said. Sanger, is tbls really one of

A TOWER Or ROMANCE.
A NORWEGIAN WORD.
Canonbury Once ths Home of Many   Origin of "BudstikKan." Which Means
Literal.'   Celebrities.
Historic   London   is   rapidly   disap. J
pearing, but now and then one runs
across some relic of the middle apes i
that  still preserves much of its orig- j
ina!  character.    Such   a   survival   i-t I
Canonbury   Tower,   standing   in   one
of  the   northern  suburbs  < f   London. I
It began  life  in  1360 as  the country i
residence of the prior of Et. Bnrtholo-i
mew.   In more recent days it hecanu
thd  home   in   turn   of   many   literary
celebrities.     Oliver   Goldsmith   lived:
there   from   1762 to  1764,  though  the;
actual rooms that lie occupied are un-]
certain.    It was tliere he commenced j
"The   Vicar  oi  Wakefield.''    Another j
tenant   at   the   same   time   as   Gold-;
smith   was  Newberry,  the  bookseller, '
and it was in his rooms that the ini- ',
pecunious   Oliver   often   took   refuge |
fr< m his creditors.
In the room, generally reputed to
have been inhabited by Uoldsmitli
lived Washington Irving some time
.after, a period of his life which lie
described in his "Tales ol a Traveler." Other interesting folk who lived there at different times were Samuel Humphre; ���, the author ol "Ulysses,'' who died there in 17u"; Christopher Smart, the "mad poet'; Dr.
Johnson of dictionary fame; William
Hone,    who    wrote    "Tlie    Everyday
"Spreading th* News.'
This peculiar word Ih frequently
found ln Scandinavian communities us
the name or a newspaper, such as SL
Cloud Budstlkken. It ls u Norwegian
word. 1,200 years old at tbe least und
has a very peculiar origin.
In  those days,  when  lbe coasts of
JCorwa,v were ravaged by pirates, the
inhabitants had to resojrt to nil sorts
of devices to warn those nt n distance
I of lhe approach of these piratical craft.
i When one was seen on the horizon ��
! mnn went up to Ihe top of n mountain.
where he lighted a beacon'lire.    This
' could be seen for n long distance und
was known to be u  warning.    When
; It  was seen  In the distance another
i (Ire was lighted on another bill until
| all over the country tires blazed from
every hilltop and the people prepared
j to defend themselves.
They also had a system of messen-
i gers. l'he man who tlrst sighted tbe
snil would lake an arrow and send lt
to his neighbors. From town to town
tbls arrow was sent until all were
warned. These were rather primitive
ways of telegraphing, but were so effectual that In Ihe course of twenty
i four hours all Norway knew of tbe approach of pirates.
Tbls system of spreading the news
was called "btidstlkken." and wben
there were no more pirates the newspapers become spreaders of tbe news
and so were appropriately styled "bud-
stikken."���Exchange.

Canonbury Tower is now tlie property of the Marquis oi Northampton, :
and an interesting romance is told of j
his ancestor  through  whom   it  came
into his possession. In 1501 it belonged to Sir John Spencer, a Lord Mayor |
of London.   He had a very beautiful
daughter, Elizabeth, who was also a
rifh heiress.   She loved and was lov-!
ed by Lord Compton, but her father '
refused to sanction the match, so the
lover bnd to resort to strategy.    He
dressed  himself u;5 as a baker's boy,
called  at  the   li'iu-e  and  eventually
left���wilh liis lady love in his basket.
Sir John   wns   furious   and   refused
to see hi* daughter after tiie marriage,
but a reconciliation was effected about
a  year  after   by

" 'Well, tell Mr. B  that I want

" 'What name?"   I queried.
"'Kitchener,' came thi reply, and
I at once reported accordingly to
the sergeant.
"He immediately made for the pris-

may profitably be noted.
T<. define the individual significance

explanation to renders unacquainted

st��ti ments that "Maharajah, Raja,

A more erroneous Conception ol the

actual ruler of a country bigger than

German king* in Europe.
Another gr"at Indian prince is the
Rao of Kutch. und ns he is the Indian
potentate with whom the writer is
besl acquainted, his position can be
precisely defined. H:- is a sover-ign
in inarch, and among Ihmr of hi?
- niects who speak Ennlish���a very
small number, by the way���His Hieh-
n- ���< is Usually referred to ns "the
King of Patch." And th.s is no mis-
ni mer.
Tlie Rao-Sahib of Kutfh ex"rci=es
nil th- attributes of a monarch. He
rules with the assurance of a despot.
1 is an island kins, whose country
can only h* reached by sei for the
grea ��� part of the year. The Rann
of Kutch, which shuts th^ country off
fr. in tlie mainland of India, Ij dry for
three months cach year, but it can
only b" crossed by camels, as it is a
sal'  desert.
His Highness has hi= palace high
ii*. on tbe ton of a hill, within the
embattled walls of a fortified city.
To enter this city one must pass
through great gates and over the
drawbridges of a splendid lake. .In
fact, the City of Bhuj..of which probably nine-tenths of those who rend
those linns have never heard, is a
wonderful walled stronghold, capable
of housing all Hr-1 people of Kutch in
tune of war, and which even to-day
would be n hard nut to crack for ',' e
soldi rs of the King-Emneror. if ever
the dav cam' that Britain fou-'d herself se'Hously at loggerhet^s with the
Kutchi  sovereign.''
\ white man is almost a rara avis
within the walls of Bhuj. and when
(he writ- drove through the city in
one of the Rao-Sahib's carriages, to
pay a ceremonial call upon his high-
i . -s, thp natives gazed at their monarch's girst in open-eyed nmazorp"tit.
The Rao of Kutch rulei his country
without the assistance of the white
man. He has never been conquered
hy lhe Britisli. It was st the request
of the Rao's ancestor tbat Ihe British
I'niv rituient sent a Resident to Kulch
in 1810. with a regiment of soldiers
t    manifest his authority.
Th re is still a lesidsnt in Kutch.
lie has a charming bungalo at some,
distance from the town, but he loves
I., cssape down to Bombay and feel
tii.it he ii in th" land of the living.
For a Resident is almost an anomaly
in Kulch. He has to bo very careful
not tn interfere with the rul-r*hip of
tiie Rao-Sahib. All he is there for is
to see that the Kutch'i monarch does
nut. make wnr on any neighboring
stale. So long as the Rao is content
to ruh his own country, th? services
���of the Resident are rendered a sine-
our".
The Rao is the descendant of a long
line of great Rajput warriors���bloodthirsty fellows at their best. But in
India might has always been right
mil lh" same applies to every other
Indian Mate. The Rao has his own
army. He has beneath him a great
feudal nobility, all of tbem rulers fit
their own states, who, in tim ��� of war,
would send their liege lord the Rao-

An Interesting Study From Historic
and Pictorial  Viewpoints.
Quite apart from tbeir use Id various games, playing cards are un interesting study from historic and pictorial points of view. Take Urst tbeir
numerical arrangement��� oj curds, 3(15
pips or dots und 13 tricks, representing
the weeks and days In tbe year and tbe
lunar months.
Tbere ure fodr suits, representing
four clusses of people ns tbey were divided at tbe time tbe pack ot cards
we now use was devised by tbe Frencb.
The "spades" stood for pikemen or soldiers, tbe clubs for clover, typifying
farmers: tbe diamonds for building
tiles, representing artisans, und tbe
hearts for ehoirnien or ecclesiastics.
The "kings" and "queens" at that
time were more or less correct likeness
of certain royal und noble personages.
Even In our modern packs It ls said
tbat oue of the queens Is a conventionalized portrait of Elizabeth ot York,
who was engaged to tbe dauphin of
France.
The "knaves" were tben the king's
Jesters, and even these cards may. be
portraits. All the court cards. In fact,
retain tbeir sixteenth century characteristics. Cnrds are among tbe few
things that have not changed with tbe
centuries.���Brooklyn EagleA

"Who Is tbe debtor?' asked the lawyer.
"Oh. she's a relative of mine."
"How nearly i elatedV"
"Very nearly."
"But, my dear sir." pprdstM the lawyer, "you must be more explicit."
"Well, Bbe may be my mother Inlaw."
"May be? Then you are likely to
marry her daughter."
"I've ulreudy married the daughter."
"Tben, of course, tbe deteudaut la

"Perhaps you'd better hear the

"You see, a year ago we lived together, my son and I. Across tbe way
lived the Widow Foster and ber
daughter Mary. I married Mary, nnd
my sun married tbe widow. Now
perhaps you can tell me whether my
son's wife Is my mother-in-law or my
daughter-in-law."
The lawyer did not answer. The
problem was unfamiliar, lie was uot

Summed Up In Four Mottoes Bonaparte Learned at School.
In 1784 Bonaparte, tben flfteen years
old. arrived at the military scbool ot
I'aris from Brlenne. being one of four
under ibe conduct of a minim priest.
He mounted 173 steps, carrying bVi
small valise, and reached, lu the attic,
the barrack chamber he was to occupy.
This chamber had two beds and a
small window opening on the great
yard of the scbool. Tbe young predecessors of Bonaparte had heserawled
the whitewashed walls with charcoal,
and the newcomer could read ln this
little cell these four Inscriptions, which
we ourselves read tbere yenrs ago:
An epaulet Is very long to win.���
De Montgivray.
Tbe finest day In life Is ihat of a battle.���Vlcorate de Tlntenlac.
Life Is but a prolonged He.���Le Chevalier Adolphe Delmas.
Tbe end of all Is six feet of earth.
���I.e Comte de la Villette.
With the trifling substitution of the
word "empire" for "epaulet" these four
sentences contain the whole destiny of
Bonaparte and formed a kind of
"Mene, Tekel. Upbarsln." written In
advance upon tbat wall.���Victor Hugo.

Dangers In Paint.
"Turpentine und benzine." says n department of agriculture bulletin, "are
very lutlammable. and special precautions should be taken not to bring
paint containing fliese substances near
auy light or open fire. Many pigments are poisonous, nnd tbe workman should be particularly careful to
remorp all paint stains from the skin
and not under any elroumstnnees allow any of It to get Into tit's mouth.
A man should not eat ln tbe same
clothes In which be has been painting
nnd before eating should not only
change his clothes, but wash nil paint
sfalns from his skin. It ls not advisable to use turpentine or benzine In
removing pnlnt stains from the bands,
but by oiling thoroughly witb linseed
oil or ln fact wltb any fatty oil nnd
then thoroughly washing with soap
tbe paint may be removed, provided
it has not been allowed to dry tou
thoroughly on tbe bands."

Handicapping the Burglar.
Burglaries In private bouses In Vienna are rare, because tho doors are
locked from 10 o'clock nt night to 0 In
the morning by order of tbe police. Admission and exit between those Hours
are given by tbe house porter, who receives a fee for unlocking tbe door
und Ih bound to report to Ihe pollce
the doings and mode of life of all the
Inhabitants of the house. This system
of lock money ls tiresome, but In Vienna, ns ut Naples, where it also exists. It obliges burglars and other criminals to operate during the daylight
nnd diminishes their chances of success. The landlords tried n few years
ago the system of giving tbe key of
tbe house door to tennnts. but ibe majority of tbe keys have been withdrawn.
