Danger of War Increases Should Turkey Prove Stubborn-
No Armistice Yet Announced A* Result of Conference of
Plenipotentiaries-Servia Will Finish War Before Replying to Austrian Demands-Germany no Peacemaker.
London, Nov. 25.���The extreme
anxiety manifested by all European
governments to deny reports of warlike preparations and to represent the
political situation as peaceful and
satisfactory is in itself an Indication
of how slender is the thread upon
which the iBSUos of peace and war in
Europe now hang.
The danger arises not alone from
the conflicting interests of Austria,
Servia and the other powers, but trom
the possibility that Turkey, following
the traditional policy of profiting by
the embroilment of the great powers,
may adopt an irreconcilable attitude
in the peace negotiations.
Operations Suspended.
Beyond the fact that the plenipotentiaries met today nothing is yet known
���not even whether au armistice has
been arranged. There appears to be
a suspension of operations at the
Tchatalja lines, apparently by tacit
consent rather than by formal agreement.
The   semi-official   Bulgarian   news
paper, Mir, editorially voices the governmental Irritation at Turkey's dila
tory methods of negotiation and accuses the porte of deliberately nomin
ating delegates from remote points in
order to gain time. This probably refers to Osman Ntzami Pasha, the ambassador to Germany, who only arrived at Constantinople from Berlin
Disquieting Features.
In the diplomatic field the mosl important reports are that Servla declines to reply to the Austrian de
mands until the war is concluded and
that Germany has not undertaken to
mediate between Austria and Russia
The news that Servia is throwing
further obstacles in the way of the
Austrian representative in search of
Procha3ka, the Austrian consul al
Prlsrend, is another disquieting fea
Fighting continues around Adrian
ople, wbere the besieging forces are
reported to have drawn their investing
circle to within two-thirds of a mile
of the town.
Six    Day    Trial    Closes���Remarkable
Identification of Sikh Now Serving Ten Year Sentence.
After Bix-dciy trial. Isshar Singh No.
II.. was found not guilty after the
jury had deliberated for half an hour
The lesult auid all the facta that
were brought out will be communicated to the. Minister of JiiBtlce at Ottawa. In view of tlie Jury's practically finding that Isshar Singh, the convict, was not present at the assauU
on Dharm Singh, the minister may
either pardon him or order a new
trial. Such is Mr. J. A. Russell's
Bosh Singh's caee, which is also
connected with this trial, and Is under appeal, will, It Is understood, b*
decided upon points of law.
Yesterday James It. Maclean, yard
foreman in the Hanbury company's
mills, Vancouver, exploded a bomb in
the crown's case of perjury against
Isshar Singh, and gave a remarkable
commentary upon identification testimony generally. He positively Identified Isshar Singh, the convict, as
havlug worked from April untll June
16 with his company and under his
direct supervision. He had no doubt
of It what ever. He identified the man
from his features, pock marks and
general characteristics. He recognized him tbe moment he saw him
emerge Into the court from the cells
below. This testimony was corrob
orated by time sheets and cheque
stubs. It will be recollected that Mr.
S. R. Law identified the same Isshar

first that the man waB seriously hurt,

that no bones are believed to have

Plans to Extend Present
Ninety Men Now Regularly Employed
���Construction Work In City Is
Being Expedited.
Moose Jaw, Sask., Nov. 25.���W. C.
Wyckham, of the Radford-Wright
Lumber company, Winnipeg, is here
today and is a great believer in the
Panama canal as a stimulant to the
Pacific coast lumber trade. He says
that province has a lumber area ot
1S2,000,000 acres estimated at 360,000,-
i)0U feet.
He gays that when the canal is opened it will mean a $S rate to Europe
Horn British Columbia ports against
$10 now charged. Instead of costing
some $30U to ship a carload of lumber
from the Pacific to the Atlantic by ral'
it will cost about $150 by the canal
route. It will mean that all the surplus lumber of British Columbia will
Hnd a ready market and a revival of
the industry in the Pacific coast province.
At present the excessive rail rates
prohibit the use of British Columbia
lumber ln the East, but with the
opening of the canal this will be a
thing of the past.

Edmonds, Nov. 25.���The Edmonds
Baptist church wus dedicated on Sunday morning, several pastors of Vancouver churches being present for the
occasion.   Standing   as   lt   does   on
Slngli (convlcU. as having worked for. Waiker avenue, close to Kingsway, the
new edifice oocupies an Imposing posl-
the Walsh Sash and Door Factory on
the dates mentioned. He waa as positive as could be, although the convict,
IsBhar Singh, was bo vehement in his
denials that he backed them up with
the sporting offer to do a life sentence
if It were proved he had worked with
the Walsh company a minute. Mr. Law
could see not a point of difference between bim and hia Isshar Singh.
In answer to Mr. Russell, Mr. Maclean said his company had been ln the
habit of employing Hindus for seven
years and he wat thoroughly conversant with Hindu labor and conditions.
He kept the time of tho Hindus working In connection with the dry kiln
exclusively. After Identifying Ushar
Singh, convict, he Bald he even remembered the occasion for which he
had to let him go. Isshar Singh waa
working under the number of 61.
Mr. Russell���Do you also know the
accused, Isshar Singh?
Witness���Yes. Sir. I know him for
a year or a little more. He heard
about the row on the Hth August, but
could not tell exactly when. He remembered accused asking leave to go
to New Westminster one day between
11 and 11:30 a. m..\and that he did
not return to the mill that aame afternoon, or the next day.
Cross-examined by Mr. Grant for the
crown, witness stated there would be
about 50 or 60 Hindus working about
the Hanbury mills. They did not
change very often. Questlbned as to
hla poeitlveness ln Identifying a man
and remembering hls number without
his attention being drawn to It, he replied there was a man In court at that
moment, who had been away from the
mill for two yeara, and he remembered his number.
Mr. Russell then produced a third
Isshar Singh who had worked at the
Walsh Factory on the dates aworn to
by Mr. Law. "A short, scrubby
man," declared counsel, but tha court

Co-operation of Public Bodies Regarding Edmonds Freight���Water
for Coquitlam.
Edmonds, Nov. 23.���One victory and
two defeats. That iB the record of
the "solid" three on the Burnaby council who successfully opposed the resubmission of the 11. C. E. R. franchiB3
���some two weeks ago.
The franchise fight was their only
victory for the opposition slipped one-
over at last week's council when they
downed the abolition of the ward sys
tern movement and last evening they
passed a motion with the aid of Chair
:nan MacDonald, of the board of
works, which appointed Councillors
Britton, Madill and Mayne as a committee to interview the B. C. E. R.
officials ln regard to better freight
accommodation at Edmonds station.
Councillor Madill moved an amend
-nent that Reeve Weart and Councillors Brltton and Fau Vel-be the committee, but' the reeve Btated that per
haps the original motion might be better as that committee had criticized
the concessions obtained from the
company In the franchise fight. The
amendment was lost. This committee
will work in conjunction with similar
committees from the board of trade
tnd the Edmonds ratepayers' associa
Councillor Britton took exception to
t report which appeared in the after
noon papers of Vancouver and New
Westminster, of a speech made by
Mr. Alec Macpherson at a recent meet-
!ng of the Edmonds Ratepayers' asso
elation, which dealt with the honesty
nf councillors.
Mr. Macnherson was present and ex-
nlained his position. He thought he
had been misquoted and misfepresent-
ed, but did not blame the press as he
might have been speaking at a fast
rate at the time.
He had not questioned the honesty
ot any councillor and especially that
if the present council, but what hp
maintained and would stand for was
that no one on the council should de
rive any financial benefit from his
connection with his office.
. His remarks were well received by
the councillors.
Several complaints were aired regarding the contractors leaving water
trenches wide open for several weeks
at a stretch.
The people of Coquitlam r^sld'np
on the North road will probably b-J

Coquitlam and the Vancouver city
council accede to the request.
Definite assurance bas been received
by Mayor Lee that the car shops of
the B. C. E. R. are not to be removed
trom New Westminster, thus contradicting the lumors circulated during
the past few weeks.
In a letter received by the mayor
yesterday iroin the head officials of
the comp<iuy al Vancouver lt Btated
explicitly mat so far as reducing the
capacity of tue plant went, there was
nothing to it whatsoever, and, further,
that the cotnpuny is planning further
expansion to the shops and intends
building on the property which was
purchased at great expense early in
the Bummvr and which is situated
north of the resent buildings.
Could Not Build Here.
Owing to Lie fact that the new provincial regulation comes into effect
on January 1, the letter stated that It
would have been impossible for the
company to build their entire rolling
stock ln this city.
At the present time there is a permanent force of ninety workmen employed in the shops, and this number
would probably be Increased at a recent date. The fact that several men
were laid off, the letter explained, did
not alter the situation one iota. It was

The Richmond    municipal    counc''.
has agreed to share in the cost of laying two permanent water mains acros-s
the North Arm of the Fraser river and
in the installation and upkeep of the
emergency main now nearing completion on the Lulu Island bridge.   This
was decided at a conference held in
the city hall yesterday between   the
civic water committee and three members of the Richmond council.
At   first   it   was thought that   one
main across the North Arm would be
sufficient for all requirements, but at
the meeting it was thought advisable
that two be installed.   This it was believed would provide against all accidents similar to that which has occurred in connection   with   the   present
main.   Richmond will pay for the installation of one of the pipes, while
Westminster will shoulder the entire
cost of the other.   It is not expected
that either will cost much above $10,-
000 so far as the submerged section
Ib concerned.
When  the  emergency  main across
the Lulu Island bridge ls completed
and in operation, which it Is expected
wlll be this evening, it will be necessary to keep three men working singly
in  eight hour  shifts, constantly    on
the ground shutting the water off and
on every time the bridge is opened.
In this expense Richmond will share
one half with  Westminster and the
cost of installation will be divided in
similar proportions between the two

Olivet- Baptist church, corner of
Seventh and Queens avenue, laat

flowed the church turned out to hear
the cantata "Daniel," and the solos
and choruses' whloh comprised the
first part of the entertainment. A
specially augmented choir, conducted
by Mr. J. T. Baker, added much to the
evening. Their glee, "Strike the Lyre,"
was excellent. Two overtures by the

Propose to Cut Down    all    Mountain
Aah Trees on City Property-
The city solicitor advised the council last night that it was not necessary, accordiug to the Municipal act,
to submit the agreement of sale of a
waterfront street to the Brunette Lumber Mills company at Sapperton to
the ratepayers for ratification unless
It desired to do so.
This information waB requested
some time ago when a delegation of
Sapperton ratepayers met the council and cited objection to the proposed
sale of the street. They asked that
the solicitor give an opinion as to
whether the council was in the right
In carrying the agreement through by
Postpone Decision.
Alderman Gray suggested that tho
information be passed on to the ratepayers and the situation explained to
them, but Mayor Lee held that such
course was useless as'apparently they
were unalterably opposed to the sale.
Alderman Curtis stated that the
council had assured the ratepayer*
that they would either refer the agreement of aale to the voters or hold a.
public meeting. They mu3t stand by
their promise he thought.
The couucil could not feel itself In
a position to take any definite action
on the matter last night and it was
laid over until Wednesday evening
when It will come up for consideration
along with the new Trades License bylaw.

who, with liis wife, spent ten years ill
tho Teso country in Kast Alrica, cornea
forward witli .. new book containing
interesting descriptions of some ol tlie
most primitive tribes knojvn to civilized mun.
Mt. and Mrs. Kitehing were the fir.-t
whita persons to invade the Teso
country, nnd during their Iciig mission they livej among savage blacks,
many of whom were not far enough
advanced in civil.zation to don as

The native tribes Mr. Kitehing found

wpilld expect that so primitive would
be. The theory that naked people are
more moral than these wlio wear

hold water.   Ho writes:
In spite of .'���: importance of ni:ir-
riugc, mid tlie efforts expended l>y
many on acquiring the wherewithal
to got a wife, tliere in no semblance of
home life am .nr Bantus; the wife is
a mere chattel, to hi acquired at considerable expense, and, therefore, to

Wliile the sexes in these lavage
tribes may he snid to be.on an equality, the question of "votes ftr women" docs not arise because there are
no votes for men. One main feature
oi this e(|"ality of the sexes, it may iw
cause or it may ho an effect, is the
fact that the men dn the bulk of the
hard  work in cultivation.

but he mu-t gain the consent of bis
wives. Wives are usually attained by
purchase, thoutrh there are otber
way.-.    Mr.  Kitehing says:
"ISiu ehieis havo many more wives
thin tliey actually marry tb m-elves.
and these nru bequeathed to tli-'ir sons
after them, all iw with tiu otl er pro-
iwrty. Sometimes it may haopen tha!
a young mnn inherits a wife much
older tiiiiii himself, in which case i"
n ay arrange with bis bn ther to ex-
clmnce for a younger w< irn.i, tl e elder
brother then marrying the older woman.
"One of the nio t Important Gan'*
chiefs, by null)' Ogwok, hail a great
number of wives of all apes. I win
t<<!il Ihat there was at least eighty,
and I doubt if be knew himself how
many children he bad. Ile was constantly acquiring more wives, belli,'
very wealthy i.i cattle, but most of
these were for his sons, who were naturally numerous, and many ui tbeui
already grown up.

These savage tribe* carry personal
adornment to the most extreme point.
Many of tbem pierce their tongues 'or
the purpose of inserting strings nf
rings or lieads. How tl.ey est witb
these burdens attached t> their
tongues can not be explained, unless
they detach the ornaments at mealtime.   We read on:
Patiku youmj men wear bnrbi of

boys have a hole pierced in the lower
lip at tiie sge <*l six or seven, aid
they wear a bit of stick in tlle hole
until able to procure an ornament.
"Tbe custom was a rather useful one
lo us," record* Mr. Kitohinp, "as it
found us a splendid market for all
mi: old bottles, which went at ahout
eight pence apiece, or even more, ac
cording to the thickness and clear
whiteness of the glass.
"Having succeeded in li"i'ging or
purchasing a bottle, a youth takes it
to the lire nnd bents it to the point
of splitting; lie then rakes out the
pieces from the fire and selects those
most suitable for liis t urpoH*. He

Poisoning is one of tlie plen*��nt customs of Kast Alrica. In I'ntiko, Mr.
Kitehing wa.* assured that not infrequently people died irom contact with
the lagaga; thi* is a poison trap set

Indianapolis, Ind., Nov. 25.���Sworn
testimony that John McNamara planned to complete desruction of Loa
Angeles was given by Ortie McManigal today at the dynamite conspiracy
trial in the United States court here.
McManlgal's resumption of the witness stand wns unexpected. He also
snld that McNamara planned to dynamite all non-union jobs at the Panama
eunul. "burn tl\e city of Los Angelei

McNamara told hlm. "Make It a landmark like San I'Yancisco was right

McMauigul said McNamara planned
to send three or four "good men" to
Los Angeles, start fires In different
parts of tlie city, ahd then simultaneously dynamite the water system.
Attorneys for the defense denounced

Judge Anderson declared was in contempt of court. The defendants, the
attorneys said, had no connection with
the article and were not ln sympathy

Ottawa,  Ont.,  Nov.   25.���Report   of
\ W .the Department of Labor on industrial
/ and labor conditions during October
just out, Btatea that the labor conditions were good during the month,
that agricultural operations were extensively carried on and threshing was
generally done under favorable conditions.
With the exception of a few days of
cold and wet weather in the middle of
the month, good weather prevailed and
satisfactory progress was made in all
branches of agriculture. Conditions
in the weat, the rr-port says, were particularly favorable. The quality of
grain marketed is unusually high
Trade has been stimulated greatly.
Metalliferous camps In all parts of the
country were busy. Many men have
set oul with lumber-camps but the cut
is not expected to be greater than th.-.t
of last year. Railway work wns carried on more extensively than during
September as mere men were available the clo.<e of the harvesting operations.
The building trades throughout the
country were alao exceedingly busy in
preparation for winter activities.- In
this line, however, a shortage of men
were universally reported. Unskilled
labor was In great demand, and In
most localities the demand was not
adequately satisfied!
Strike  Record  During1 October.
According to the statistical record
maintained from month to month by
the Department of Labor, and published In The Labor Gazette, the number of disputes In existence throughout Canada during the month of October was 21. This compares with ten
disputes during October, 1911, and 21
during the month of September.
From tho standpoint of the number
of working days lost, October of the
present year shows a great Improve-
inont cer the corresponding period of
1911. This year the loss ln working
days was about 9X.00O. whereas a year
ago It was 191,200. The great majority of the disputes of the past month
Involved only comparatively small
bodies of workmen at scattered points.
The n'imber of disputes coming within
the scope of the Industrial D'sputea
Investigation Act was two, affecting
3300 employees, as compared with,
three disputes affecting 7500 employees in October, 1911.
Tlie mosf serious dispute was that
involving coal miners on Vancouver
Island, which began in September. On
the whole, ln view of the Industrial ac-
tllvty which characterized the past
summer, October may be regarded at,'
closing under exceptionally favorable
conditions as regards labor disputes.

Blazes Up���Operator Loses Nerve
���Investigation   On.
Bilboa, Spain, Nov. 25.���A terrible
panic was caused here yesterday by j
the cry cf flre at moving picture ahow.
About 50 children and others were
killed. Tlie number of injured ls noi
Unown, as most of them were taken
home by friends.
The scene of the accident was a
large circus, which had been convened into a Cinematograph show. As the
price of admission waa only two cents,
the building was crowded, for the
most part with women and children.
The operator of  the  machine   lost
his nerve when a film ignited and he
screamed "fire."    lie was able to extinguish   the   flames   himself  without
difficulty, but the effect of his cry up-:
on the spectators was Instantaneous.
Almost every one within the  building
sprang   up.       Police   and   attendants
were swept away by the surging mass
which sought   to fight   a way to the
exit.   Scores were knocked down and
trampled upon and many were crush I
ed to death in the passages from the ;
galleries to tbe streets.
The disaster caused frenzied crowds '
tp  gather    outside  the  building  and
the authorities had  great trouble in
carrying'on the work of rescue and ex-
trlcatlng the dead and injured.
The manager and other   employees i
have been arrested and are held pending an enquiry.

Vienna, Nov. 25.���In the centre oi
the city scenes were witnessed today
and yesterday which are sympathetic
of the feeling prevailing in Vienna.
Toward midnight 500 Pan-German students assembled before tbe Beutsch
Meister Memorial, commemorating a
victory gained by a regiment, named
"Deutsch Meister," which was composed exclusively of Viennese. Thc
students made a noisy demonstration
wth shouts of ��"Hurrah for War,"
"Down with Russia and Servia."
Some hundreds of paasersby joined ln
the demonstration, marching In broad
lines through the streets.
The proceedings today in tbe "Qra-
ben" one of the finest streets In the
city, were far less Innocent, About
250 Servians students who are residing in Vienna, on leaving the Greek
and Servian churches at noon, marched to the Servian and Bulgarian legations giving vent to their enthusiasm
la loud, patriotic cries.
As the procession turned toward the
Russian embassy its advancea were
prevented hy a strong pollce cordon.
The struggle was so fierce between
the students and the police that the
latter were obliged to draw their
swords. The students were forced
back, but assembled again and marched to the "Graben." where loud shouts
were raised ot "Down with Austria,"
"Hurrah for Servla," "Hurrah for King
Peter-" The police now advanced, but
were prevented by the general publ'c,
wpo attacked the Servians with sticks,
until so many were injured that the
police dashed to their assistance with
drawn swords. Thla scene lasted for
a considerable time and ended in the
arrest bf 20 Servians, who were conducted tinder a strong guard to the
police station.
Later similar demonstrations were
resumed In the centre of the city. An
artillery officer waa attacked hy tha

Her Forces Are Dolnj Great Work For
This is an age of organized social reform, and there was never a time when
women were doin.? more valuable work
for tlie community. The Women's National Health Association of Ireland
may be described as a social welfare
army with her Excellency the Countess of Aberdeen in command. Detachments are stationed all over the
country. One hundred and lilty'
branches or battalions are engaged irt
attacking disease, poverty, misery, anil
dirt. Twenty thousand women are enrolled umkr the banner of health ami
hope, and it would lie difficult to overestimate the value to Ireland of these
wiTrnen's work.
Ireland, half a doznn years ago, was
virgin soil in the sense that there was'
no dvfl'ite philanthropic organization
for tackling the problems of tuberculosis, infant mortality, and public
health. Any remedies were merely
palliative. Preventive work had not
been sturtei. The infant mortality
awl tuberculosis ik-aUi rutes were appalling.
So Lady Abordren started babies'
clubs, and a pasteurized milk depot
for supplying pure mflk in Dublin.
In the poorest quarters ol the eity,
places were rented by the association
to be used as "clubs." Voluntary
helpers and trained nurses were nb-
tained, and the good offices ol the
doctors were enlisted. Thus tie pre-
ventive work for infant mortality was;
organized on a professional basis. Tlie'
association liegins with the babies and
and tlie mothers in its health cam-1
paign, an 1 r.ghtly. too. By the education of motherhood and the protect
tio . of infancy this prulile'n can best
be solved.
But its energies are extended in all
directions, .lust lately the children's
playgrounds scheme has emtio into
being; Derelict spaces in the slum-
rninst parts of the city are being trans-
formed into garden playgrounds for
the babies and the children with as-
t' u:.ding success. St. Monica's Playground was opened a little while agi
by tlie Lord Lieutenant "f Ireland,
and the children oi t nt neighborhood
have come to regard Lady Aberdeen
as a  personal  friend.

To the new-comers Canada owes

huilding of cars in New Westminster.
My position in regard to the subject
is of course, very much influenced by
my connection with the company since
1.894 In the continuous daily use of
their cars during that time.
I was quite aware of Mr. Bowser's
order, if you may call it so, to come
Into effect cn Jan. 1, 1915. I might
only say in this connection, "Thana
heaven for a Railwuy Commission,"
but why didn't they give that "peremptory order" years ago ? I'm sure
the circumstances warranted It.
tTio whole point Is this: Why did
the company wait for the "peremptory
order" of tlie commission. They should
have been continuously building cars
to meet their growing needs so tha��
a rush order for a hundred cars would
have been unnecessary.
I have no 111 will to the B. C. E. R.
Co. They are good developers, but I
am tired of standing while I pay for a
seat, and object to paying Lie for
what I believe they can sell for on a
cent. In this case Mr. Bourke'S "Cana
dian fair play" means Canadian-built

Railway  Commission   Issues  New Order   Regulatiny   Warning   Bells
and Posts at Hinhv/ays.
Ottawa. Out. Nov. 25 ���An order ol
the railway board has been issued
changing the specifications for the
protection of the highway crossings
by  Canadian  railways.
Under the new regulations it is ordered that the posts to which tho
bell3 and other signals are attached,
if of timber, must be sound ln quality, not less than eight by eight inches
In dimensions and eighteen feet ln
length, and sunk a distance of four
feet in the ground; if of Iron or steel,
at least four inches in diameter, 12
feet in height and firmly bolted to a
concrete foundation.
The bell used must emit a clear,
loud volume of sound under aM
weather conditions. On the same
post as the bell there must be a sign
with the word "danger" in letters not
less than six inches in length and illuminated.
The bell and the Illumination of thf
sign are to be controlled and operated
automatically by the approach of
trains In such a manner that this
cause only shall be sufficient to operate the signal. The new regulations
which have been adopted as a result
of the recommendation cf the chief
engineer of the board, rescind those
put in force in February of last year
and immediately come into operation.

Patricks' Strategy In Hockey War DIs-

Royal Line-up.
The suddenness with which th9
Patricks pulled off the coup on the
National Hockey association last week
when they Just about shattered whatever chances at least two teams had
of securing the Stanley cup, ls just beginning to be realized by Westminster
people In general. It Is one of the
biggest deals that has ever been pulled off In the sporting world, whether
ln Canada or elsewhere, and Its effects will be far reaching.
It is the first time the Canadian
West has been given the chance to
dictate to the eastern provinces, which
well known New Westminster residents were elected officers of the new
Honorary president, Mr. G. D. Brymner; president, Mr. H. It. Davidson,
vice-president, Mr. H. C. Adams,
manager, Mr. Napior Smith; secretary-
treasurer, Mr. II. T. Reed.
The colors of the club wlll be green
and white. Some discussion followed
the election of officers and all members will pull together to work for
the city championship.

British Columbia has been getting ���
tlie small end of the stick handed it *

perhaps less the Pacific gateway was ���
not in a position to ask for equal ���
treatment from the hands of the east- ���
ern magnates, but that situation is ���
past and gone and equal rights to all, | ���
privileges to none, is now the slogan
of (he B. C. sporting men.
The Now Westminster team will
probably be reorganized at a meeting
of (he P. C. H. A. to be held in Vancouver this week.

prominence to the fact that Cyclone

Toronto. Nov. 25.���-Very little revision was made in the rules of play at
the meeting of the National Hockey
Association at the King Edward today. The delegates present were: M.

P. J. Quinn, Torontos; W. J. Bellingham, Ben Colsou and Williams, Tecumsehs; S. Llchtenhein, Wanderers;
M. J. Quinn and'Malone, Quebec. Penalties for fouls were outlined as follows:
A minor foul consists of holding or
tripping and loafing off side when tha
goal is not in danger. ���
For minor fouls the player shall be
warned once and for every succeeding offence shall be fined $2. Tho
third offence for loafing off-side shall
constitute a minor foul.
A major foul consists   of throwing

A match foul shall be when a player
disables or Injures an opponent. For
the first offence the penalty shall be

ahall be dealt with as the case of major fouls.

Then Note the Curious Designs That
Will Be Produced.
A curious experiment may be made,
the result of which will produce a
strange natural design, and the attempt may be carried on with almost
endless variety in the result. The
only things needed are a deep dish of
water and some oil. Any kind of oil
will do, but better results are obtained with a variety.
Fill a deep dish with pure water
and let it stand until the water is perfectly still; then let fall into it a drop
of pure sperm oil. The drop will,
spread out, forming a film circular
in shape, but very ranged at the edges.
If you watch the film you will soon
perceive that the centre begins to
break up, forming ovals and circles,
and the combination of these form
endless designs which keep on forming and breaking up from one to
another for fully half an hour, making
a veritable kaleidoscope.
You will see some designs that you
may wish to preserve, and if that he
so take a piece of glazed paper and
place it gently over the surface of the
water when tlie film is in the desired
design. The oil will stick to the
paper, and when you remove it from
tha water, as gently as you placed it
there, run an inked roller over it or
place the design on un inked plate.
The ink will cover the paper except
where the oil has touched it, and
when your process is finished yonr
desisn of oil will stand out white
against a black background.
This ssme experiment made with
castor oil will give a similar r-sult,
except that the designs will he smaller, and every kind ol oil will give a
different design. Indeed, no two drops
of the same oil will produce the same
design, so that you may preserve an
endless variety in your collection.

^specimens of the blue or sulphur
Itottjotu whale weighing seventy-tire
tons and measuring elshty-seven feet
have been known. The month Is sufficiently law to permit ten or twelve
taen to stand upright In it. but the
throat measures only about nine
Inches In diameter.
The "finback." closely related to the
blue whale, bus been called the "grey-
bound of the sin." for Its long, slender
body Is built ou tbe lines of a racing
yacbt. and the unlmnl can equal tbe
speed of the fastest steamship.
The "humpback" ts tbe most Interesting of our large whales, because ot
the fact that Its habits are more easily
studied than are those of other members of the family.
But most extraordinary of all ls the
square nosed sperm wbale. Instead
of bavlng plates of baleen, this whale
carries a row of twenty to twenty-Uve
heavy teeth on each side of the lower
jaw. These fit Into sockets In the roof
of the mouth and assist In holding tbe
giant squid and cuttlefish on which
tbe enormous animal feeds. The squid
seldom gets away from tbe warm currents: hence tin* sperm usually remains In Hip tropics and In the gulf of
Japan streams.���London Family Herald.

more curious nml Interesting creature
than the water turkey, wblcb Is sometimes culled the snake bird.
As tbe stranger gazes upon this
scene he ls sometimes apt to tblnk he
sees a queer snake wriggling out of the1
water several feet Iuto tbe nir. If hsi
grabs his gun and fires It Is probable
tbat a part of tlie supposed snake will
drop upou the water, wliile the other
part takps wing and Hies away.
Tbe stranger wonders whether the
snake dropped the bird or thr bird tbe
snake. The explanation Is quite simple. A snake bird, or water turkey
(Plotuanhliigai. swimming with Its
long neck only out of the water bad
the snake in its bill, and the snake waa
dropped when the gun was fired.
Tbe water turkey has been called the
most preposterous bird within tbe
range of ornithology. "He Is not a
bird." says one authority; "be is a
neck, witb such subordinate rights,
members, uppurtenances and hereditaments thereunto appertaining ns seem
necessary to that end. He baa just
enough stomach to arrange nourishment for Ills neck. Just enough wings
to fly painfully along with his neck
aud just big enough legs to keep bis
neck from dragging on the ground, and
bis neck is light colored, while the rest
of blm Is black."���New York Sun.

How the Katydid Sings.
Everybody Is familiar wltb the rasping notes known us tbe katydid's

Specters That Haunt Some Old Werld
Ancestral Homes.
That   historic   Herman   ghost,   the
White   I.ady   of   the    Hohenzollerns.
would seem to bave more than a legendary basis.   So tar as 1 am aware, tbls
ghost bas never been Investigated by
properly   qualified  psychical   research-
era, but Its credentials are too well authenticated to be ignored.   The mission
of tlie White Lady, apparently, is to
announce the death of some member
of  the  Hoheuzollern  family,  and  her
most  frequent  haunting  place is  tbe
royal palace at Herlin.    She was seen
as early as H'.US, nnd since the time of
Frederick   the   Oreat   her  appearance
has been   regularly chronicled on the
eve of the death of the kiny of Prussia.
For the matter of that, there nre not
a few families whose ancestral homes,
according to tradition, are haunted by
death announcing ghosts.   This is par
tlcularly the case with certain distiu
guislieil   British  families.    The   Yorkshire Middletons. a Catholic family, are
said to be warned of approaching death
by the apparition of n Benedictine nuu
Cortachy  castle,  wliich  belongs to the
earls of Airlie, is bauuteil by a ghostly
drnuimer.  who heats his drum  whenever death is uearau Airlie.   Two white
owls perching on the roof of the family
mansion are taken as a sure omen of
death in the Arundel of Wnrilnur family.    Finally, tradition has It that the
death of an Argyll is foretold lu a most

Welsh Doctors' Odd Fees.
Welsh tiionarchs used to pay their
doctors on a singular scale. At tbe
court of the Uwynedd kings the physician or surgeon ranked twelfth In order of precedence among tbe household officials, and his fees were carefully defined. For curing a tiesb wound
tbut wns not dangerous the doctor was
allowed no other perquisite than such
of the garments of the wounded person as were stained with'blood- But
for curing any of what were oalled
"the three dangerous wounds" he was
granted a fee of ISO pence ami his
maintenance during the cure, besides
tbe blood stained garments.-Loudon

^���k-HrkPtrk-kPtrkt*** *********
| It was a lazy day. Spring had arrived early that year, and ln April the
mosey banks of the Virginia brookslde
were starred thickly with delicate for-
getmenots nnd purple violets. The sun
shone down warmly tbrougb tbe trees,
chancing the bursting buds to misty
greeu lenves until the whole wood was
permeated with green light shot tbrough
with sunshine.
Jack Wendell tramped through the
crisp leaves of successive yenrs and
wltb a wistful, half defiant glance up
the winding road tbst led to Everglade
Hall be threw himself down beside the
murmuring brook and plucked remorselessly at tbe flowers.
"Forjjetmenots-rubbisb!" be ejaculated bitterly. "All women nre faithless."
"Rubbish to that!" retorted a sweet
voice from the other bank, and .lack
arose, startled to observe a pretty clrl
engaged In plucking violets and forgetmenots and tying them Into little
bunches. She wore a pink frock, nml
with tbe background of green moss
and the golden green atmosphere of
the wood surrounding ber sbe looked
to Jack's bewildered eyes like a pink
and white fairy evolved from tbe April
day. Her skin was pink and white,
and her hnir was golden, like the sunshine, and ber eyes were like the blue
sky and tbe flowers below. When she
spoke to Jack she had flashed a saucy
glance at bim from under golden brown
"Wby rubbish?" demanded Jack ar-
"Oh, becnuse!" said the girl, looking
at s completed bunch of violets wllb
half closed eyes.
"I thought I smelted May pinks,"
sniffed Jack, abandoning tbe argument
fqr tbe while.
"1 have a basketful here," snld the
"Making May baskets?"
"Somebody Is going to make baskets. These are for the kindergarten
Jack flushed redly. Phyllis Lambert
kept the kindergarten school In Red-
land.   The path he had longed to take
<k r�� m ��� *.**-.-**
|md led directly to the door of her
���woodland achool. He had tieeu In love
with Phy ilia ever since he bad Bret

kindergarten. Blanche was Ove tben.
nnd be wna fifteen, and Phyllis was
twenty-flve. Now Blanche was tit-
teen, he was twenty-live, and I'byllla
vas-Jack refused to consider Phy Ilia"
increasing age. He had been In love
with her to sucb detrimental etTect
tbat his father hsd found business for
lilm In a distant city and hoped the
boy would forget bis sweetheart
But Jack was obstinate and would
not forget, lt was bis Wendell obstinacy that compelled blm to haunt
I'byllla Lambert's steps until sbe halt
laughingly promised to wult for blm.
fcbe hnd given blm a hunch of forget-
tnenots, and be bod gone away happy
as a king, and be bud atayed away,
cheerfully forking to make something
of himself for I'byllla' sake.
Tbere wns no objection to Phyllis
Lambert eicept the difference in tbeir
ages, i'byllla was sweet ond fair and
very liveable If Inclined to be somewhat shallow and nerveless, but Jack'e
jiarents ever beld before blm tbe fact
thnt by tbe time be was ready to marry her bis bride wonld be thirty Ilva
nr forty years old and "look It, too,"
ns hla inotber added emphatically. It
wna perbnpa unfortunate, under the
clrcumstancee, tbat Jack should -appear young for bis age aud I'byllla old
for bers.
But a letter from Phyllis bad
brought hlm home flying now. She
bad changed her mind. She did not
wnnt to mnrry any one at present
She did not lore him as sha ahonld.
and she preferred that their engagement should end. And abo returned
Jack'e letters and tha ring be bnd In-
���lsted upon plae��rg on her plump,
white Anger and waa "bis ilneere
Xrienfl. Pbyllle Lambert"
So Jack had come flying bome, astonishing his parents, wbo evidently knew
nothing about Lbe broken engagement
He bad hurried tbrougb lunch, an'd with
some incoherent remark about a walk
In the woods he had plunged Into tbe
path that led to I'hyllls' woodland
kindergarten. At tbe brookslde, wbere
the path diverged toward tbe school,
be hud paused und thrown himself
dowu. Tben It was that his bitter remark bad found a hearer In the person
of tbe prettiest girl be had ever seen.
As a matter of fact, .lack Weudell had
been practically blind since he was flfteen���he had bad uo eyes for any otber
girl than Phyllis. They simply did not
exist for blm.
"May baskets." repeated Jack gloomily, a shadow passing over bis face.
"Perhaps tbey will bang one on your
door." remarked tbe girl in a comforting tone.
"I hope notl I bate spring flowers."
said Jack ungraciously.
"Even forgetmenots?"
Jack glanced at ber demure, downcast face.
"Even forgetmenots," be said stiffly.
There was a pause wblle she daintily
bunched ber flowers and tied tbe
bunches wltb long, tougb blades uf
"I suppose 1 ought to go away and
leave you alone.   Vou were bere flrst," j
observed Jack   without moving  (rom
bis  comfortable   posltlou.     His   back
was against a tall chestnut tree.
"Suit yourself," said the girl carelessly. "If you were a perfect stranger
I might object   As It Is"���
"As It is?" Interrupted Jack, beginning to be Interested.
"We know eacb other well. You
slapped my face once," said tbe girl
"1 slapped your face once?" Jack's
amazement wus genuine. "Wby, I
"Ves, you did. Jack Weudell. Tou
were eight years old. and 1 wns only
five.   It was at Miss Qullty's scbool."
"At Miss Quilty's scbool-ah. yes!"
Jack was scanning ber face to discover
some truce of a little schoolmate of
seven teen years before. She must
bave been n rosebud of a little lass,
but us for slapping ber face���be simply
didn't believe it.
"I suppose you remember all about
It?" The girl's bead was bent over her
