Leaks In Water Pipes Under
Contractor   Claims $2304 for Repairs
Done���Can City Recover From
Company Supplying Pipe?
Great efforts wete made by the
city councll last night to clear up the
matter of the leaks In the city's
water main and to place the blame
on the right shoulders. The matter
came up fer discussion ln reference
ta a claim made by the Municipal
Construction Company for $2384 for
repairing the leaks in the pipe. The
city engineer, the contractor and the
chairman of the water committee an.l
several others spoke on the matter,
and the drift of the evidence seemed
to point towards 111-fittlng collars being at the root of most of the trouble. No final decision was arrived
at, however, but the company was
asked to put its claim ln writing,
when further Inquiry as to whether
the claim is just, and as to whether
the city could make a claim In Its
turn on McDonald, the contractor,
from whom the pipe was bought,
would be In order. ,
City Engineer Blackman showed
that the contract for this pipe had
been let before he had been appointed

to accept things as they stood. The
pipe was ordered in 1909 from McDonald Bros., and in 1910 he let the
contract for laying lt to the Municipal Construction Company. When the
pipe was laid and the water turned
on several hundred leaks broke out,
mostly behind the collar, but only
two In the caulking of the collar. Later on during the discussion Alderman
Bryson stated that the collars used
ln many cases were too large when
they came over from Vancouver. "I
can show some In Leopol.l's place,"
aald the chairman of the water com-
mltt.e, "which are from one-eighth
kto oiio-quarter inch too big ior the
pipe. In such cases, he said, the
pipe bad been beaten out to make
them fit, and consequently the Slightest Jar would cause a leak.    In ��n-
wWi" Wb ' Mg' were condemned and
sent back to Vancouvtr. 1 rtld not
design the collar myself. I had to
accept things as they stood. Tho
leaks mostly occurred behind the collar." With regaid to the testing of
the ilpe, he said, there was nothing
about this tn the contract, but every
Saturday they bad taken some, of Lie
1 Ue at random and tested it at double the working pressure with very
satisfactory results.
The representative of the company,
in putting his case before tbe council, claimed tbat it waa the usual
practice for all cities and municipalities to pay the contractor who laid
the ripe for all repairs made by him,
while tbey held the company supplying the pipe responsible for providing a watertight line. Out of the
700 odd leaks discovered in the case,
ISO were caused by loose rivets, tor
which he was not liable as tbe city
inspector had these under hla supervision. In every case of a loose rivet leak there, was a leak from tbo
seam also due to the same rivet With
regard to tbe handling of tbe pipes,
Mr. Blackman had objected to the
way this was done by his teamsters
at first, but this matter had been
remedied. Wben asked about the
collars, he said that Mr. Beaton of
hia firm, who had the work in charge
had told htm that in many cases the
colU:s were too large and he had
to drive in flattened wire before
caulking to make a water-tight Joint.
Further evidence was given by Mr.
Lewis, who stated, that welded
steel collars are not made to fit ex**
actly. "Neither pipe nor collars are
made true to a thirty-second of an
inch. . An exact fit with a welded
steel collar I consider an Impossibility." The-design for the collar he
considered was a fair object of criticism. The caulking, he thought,
would be preferable on the outside,
but with 'this design it had to be done
on the inside. The collar, however,
was an ordinary commercial article,
but "leakage is unavoidable if you
use that design of collar." The design had been accepted by the council  with  the  caulking Inside.
TVs concluded the evidence
heard,' and on the motion of Alderman Gray the company waa aaked to
submit its claim in writing, Alderman Bryscn making It clear that this
did not commit the council to paying
the claim, as he wished to bave tbe
matter thoroughly investigated.

to eight Inches or even twelve inches
long. They are abundant in old river
gravels of England and France. The
earliest on record was dug up in gravel ln Gray's Inn at the end of-the
seventeenth century. But because
many of them were described some
fifty years ago, when found at St.
Acheull, near Amiems, on the River
Somme, they are said to be 'of the
Acheuilian type."
Mammoth  Co-Temporary   With   M3P.
The mammoth was co-temporary
with the men who made the nicely-
flaked, well-flnished Acheuilian flint
Implements. And then we come to
gravels of a yet later horizon and
date, in which the implements discovered seem to show that the flint-
workers had suddenly hit upon a ne*'
shape and new skill in manufacture,
'lhese Implements ure found nut only
in the later gravels (as Northfleet in
Kent, and at Mildenhall ln Suffolk),
but in the caves at Moustier in the
Dordogne of France, ilrnce they are
called "Moustierian" or oi tne Moas-
tler type." They are smaller, about
two und a half Inches to three inches
long���very sharp at tbe point, and oa
Uie sides, and made with a greatly-
increased precision and skill by very
few blows. One face was made by u
single blow, by which tbe piece of
flint was knocked off a larger block.
They setm to nave Been atr.ick off
rapidly, and to have required little
further 'trimming."
Tire older, mere beautifully and
carefully chipped Acheulllian type
still remained, but this new form
was evidently a favorite. The men
of the Neanderthal race, of which a
few skulls and throe or foi.r skeletons have lately become known, used
the Hint Implements of the Moustier
type. It is difficult to trace the
changes of Hint impl. ments l:i the
still late;- days of the Palaeolithic
period. But it teems thit cirrpj in;;

dartuiess In tftemy teet of water be-
,neath tiie walls oi Winchester Cathedral. That ancient structure had Iur
,��oine years shown unmistakab.e sig.ic

t.ons were laid in tne thirteenth century. Ihere arc visible signs to-Uuy
itnat the original work was interrupt-

'Ine walls began to crack and lean
out ol the perpendicular. After many
ooii'Uitutious and inspections by engineers una aren.tects it was decided
;tnat tne only way to save tne catne-
Idral trom collapsing was to employ a
'diver, dumping was out ol the question, as the slit or sand would bl
{sacked up from the other parts ot the
foundation and tlien the whole structure would have come tumbling down.
.The problem the architects nad to
jface was how to remove the peat and
substitute concrete without using th<-
! D.ving apparatus was installed and
a man named Walker, a diver of great
experience in deep sea work, went
down into ttie dara cavernous holes
und b- gan a task that was expected
%o take about a year to complete. But
the difficulties were enormous. He
had to work in absolute darkness and
lo feel his way about in the water,
fhe physical difficulties prevent.ng
Ue use of artificial light.
1 Bit by bit he excavated the peat at
the foundation and jute bags containing concrete were then lowered to him.

whole restoration scheme has cost

Whether  In  Wsrking  er Thinking  It
Helps en te Success.
Working or thinking without system
rnteeblex the mind and leaves the
mental faculties In a clogged condition, so thut tbey do uot work sharply.
Tbe mind must be kept clear and clean
for the present problem, so tbat tt
may seize and grasp with all Its might
tbe thing lt Is attempting to accomplish.
Tbere Is only one best way to learn
bow to act. That way is tbe way of
system. Systematize your thoughts,
your energies, your abilities. Learn
early lu life to do tbls. nnd It will
prove the master bubit tbat wins success.
Systemless men are always surprised
tbat tbe beads of great enterprises
can find so much time for social life,
for bobbles, for travel. They cannot
understand It at all. Tbey do not
realize tbat a man of great organizing
ability, wltb a splendid system, can
do more effective business In a single
bour ut his ofiice than n systemless
man can accomplish In twelve. It Is
not tbe number of hours, but tbe effectiveness of the system, that tells.
One of tbe advantages of a college
course Is tbat lt trains the mind to
work by system. Whether he likes to
or not. tbe student Is forced to con
centrate bis mind wben tbe time
comes, no matter what bis mood or
how be feels. Four years of training
in tbls should put tbe mind Into working order. It should tune tbe intellect
so that all the strings will be In
harmony. A good college education
should train the mind to think concisely, deeply, effectively at will.���

Pope Leo's Dove.
The recent illness of the pope recalls a story which went the rounds,
at the time of the illness of Lea
XIII. Every day at a certain hour o,
pigoon, after the manner of Noah's
dove, used to come to the study of
the pontiff, who, no matter what the
���.business in hand was, would go to.
the bird and feed it. On the day'
that the pope was seized with his fat-i
al illness tne piga��m came as usual,,
but found the window closed. The
bird Happed its wing against thf
pane and thin struck the glass with
its beak. The pope heard it and ordered the window to be opened ond
his camerier to feed it. The bird
would not eat. hut perc'ied itself ou
the dying pontiff's couch, and ther*
demonstrated its delight at seeing i.s
old friend and protector.
A  Peculiar Clay.
The constituents of "loess." a fine
yellowish sandy clay found in various parts of the world and reaching
a thickness of over a thousand feet
in China, has given rise to eontrover-,
sy among geologists. The presence of
the shells ol snails that feed on plants
indicates the former presence of
plants.    Accordingly   it   hasrecenUy
��oilplants which

The name "harmaUn" has been

January and February. It is heralded by a fog or dry hase, which sometimes conc.sls the sun for whole
weeks together. Every plant, every
bit of grass and leaf in its course is
withered as though it had been seared by heat from a furnace. Often
within an hour after it begins to blow

uncorked It with the laughing remark, "I've done that many a time."
Smearing ink on a piece of glass,
Miss Hitchcock passed it over McNamara's fingers and thumbs on both
hands, and while 1 kept him talking,
she pressed down oc the paper and it
was all over.
Not until after the imprints had
been token aid McNamara realize
what it meant. As a matter of fact I
a sufficient time elapsed before he I
awoke to Its significance to enable us
to get him to' Initial the Impresses.
Then we told him about the flnger
maris on the sides of the launch, but
said nothing about the others we had
secured. 1 believe that then for tho
first time McNamara realized his dan-
having perfected our case the next
step was to get McNamara to confess.
The district attorney wanted, lf possible, to avoid a long trial and its
tremendous expense.
Little by little scraps of the evidence we had secured were allowed
to come to the ears of McNamara and
his lawyers. Day by day ttie strength
of the net became plainer and "plainer.
When the trial began on October 11
I decided to give Jim a [enr form of
j 'mental  third  degree.'   1  determined
I to make  him  identify  the  witnesses

talned the dynamite. j. After Brlce
and Schmidt had run the launch up
to the powder factory at Giant, their
hands were black with engine grease
and oil. Upon every box of dynamite which they threw into that
launch was left an "Impress of their
fingers. On the sides of the launch
as they -steadied themselves while
crossing the bay were left more finger-prints���all clean-cut, clear Impressions.
���It was an easy matter to cut out
the sections of the launch bearing
these Impressions and bring them
down to Los Angeles. And lt was almost as easy to Bprlnkle the specially
prepared flnger print powder on the
doors, the bureau, the gun-barrel up-
kn Which McNamara had left his imprest to bring out the hidden flnger
prints and to photograph them.
Related   for   First  Time.
While a number of stories have
been told about the flnger prints on
the launch and the flnger prints got
from James B. McNamara in the jail
in Los Angeles last May, there are
some facts regarding this evidence
that are here related for the flrst
time. ���   ���
That  the impressions  left  on  the
walls of  the  launch  ahd  the  fingerprints marie by McNamara in the Jail j against him, instead of their identify
were   identical   proved    beyond   all | ing him.   To lull him into a sense of
doubt that McNamara and Brice were
the same man; and although it was
certain that McNamara bought and
handled the dynamite it San Fian-
clsco which was afterward found ln
the unexploded Zeehandelaar bomb
in Los Angeles, lt would not be proof
that McNamara placed the bomb
which blew up the Times building. A
confederate might have placed it for
him. But James B. McNamara himself   furnished    the    incontrovertible
security I made no move for several
weeks. Then, one day In the latter
part of October, after McNamara had
lost all Interest ln the process of selecting the jury, after he had wearied
of the interminable questions asked
each talesman, the door of the courtroom opened and Into the room slipped the man who had so often played
the "Traumere" for McNamara at the
cafe in San Francisco. Watching McNamara  closely,  I  saw   him   giance
I recollect once when I

Gravesencfto meet either Mr. Spie:s
or Mr. Pond (I forget which of these
two gentlemen lt was), who was coming over to see him about the contemplated Australian reading I was
busily engaged brushing my coat in

He happened to come ln just at the
moment, and I never by any chance
committed that particular offence afterward.
"In everything  pe-taining  to  f^od
and drink he was   the most careful
and abstemious of men.    Mr. Fields,
of Tlcknor & Flelds. the Boston publishers, described him exactly    when
he  said:   'He was accustomed to talk
and write a good deal about eating
and drinking, but I have rarely seen
a man drink or eat less.   He liked to
dilate In Imagination over the brewing of a bowl of punch, but when the
punch was brewed he drank leas of
lt than anyone who might be r���esent.'
i It was the sentiment of the thing aad
not the thing itself that engaged his
attention.    He was wonderfully good
and even tempered, although he may
be easily Imagined, of a nervous and
excitable temperament.    If he did allow his temper to get the betttr of
him for a   few moments, which, bow-
ever,  he  very  rarely  ever did,  then.
like the   sun after a passing summer
shower, all the most lovable traits of
his most lovable character shone out
to greater advantage afterward."

City  Sanitary   Inspector Gives Satisfactory Account of Meat Markets
���Bake Shops Have Improved,
Tbe sanitary inspector submitted
his annual report to the council yesterday afternoon. The most important item was that concerning the
outbreak of smallpox on April 6, 1911.
Cases of this disease were reported
from all over the city, numbering 30,
but fortunately no deaths occurred.
The Koyal Columbian Hospital was
Quarantined in this connection from
April 6 to May 21. Relief work was
sadly hampered by the destruction
on A:>rll 21 of the Isolation hospital
by fire, and tents had to be erected
to provide temporary accommodation.
The meat markets had been regularly Inspected during the year and
were reported In a good condition,
several of them being "unsurpassed
anywhere." Much improvement ha9
been made In the bake shops of the
city, which were now regularly .inspected.
The inspector reported considerable
difficulty in enforcing the sanitary
regulations in cases where persons
are financially unable to make sewer
connections. To remedy this defect
lt was suggested that the council
make loans to such [ertens to enable them to complete the vork, as it
is believed is done In some other

"I had no firearms, but I had three
t>l carmen lying on the ground beside
me. Photographs taken from a tree
wouid not give the true result. I
wnted there half an hour. I knew
the tiger was approaching, by the
beaters, some of whom were up
trees, tapping like,.woodpeckers; others were on the ground, making hideous sounds with every noisy thing
they possessed. . ������*��� '.
"The tiger came down the tunnel
and out into, the-open, and I photographed hint wectly he got halt way
across. He gave vent to a number of
most terrlfflc coughs.
"The natives wanted the to kill the
tiger, since lt was a man-eater. They
could not understand why I only
wanted to turn a handle at the animal. Fifteen, saying they would be
his next victim, got behind a bush
with, spears, and, when the tiger was
driven up to them, three of the men
rushed out with their weapons.
"The tiger leapt from the- dense
jung'.e. The man on the right and
the man on the left bolted. The fr*V
in the middle turned around to follow them, but fell upon his face, upon that the tiger threw himself upon
him, with his claws in his shoulder,
like a flash of lightning, and put
his head down to the back of the
man's neck. i
"I  shouted,  thinking  he  was  going to bite through the man's spinal,
column.   The beast looked up at me, j
gave another  great  cough,  growled
Bavagely at me,  then jumped side*
ways and disappeared." "
Elephants Asleep.
A question often raised in regard
to the Alrican elephant Is whether
these animals ever rest or not. At
first blush lt would appear that there
could only be one answer to tho
question. So huge an animal must
.expend a'terrific amount of energy
and, therefore, as one might, easily
infer, must need more time than the
smaller animate for rest and retnvig-
oration. Nevertheless, many travellers and some naturalists have asserted that the African, elephant In
Its native state never sleeps, or at
least never His down. A correspondent who has sent photographs direct

be the committee.
With reference to the matter of
the brick building on Lorne street,
owing to the unsafe condition of
which the engineer had closed part
of that street, the building committee reported that the engineer's opinion had been confirmed, .and the condition of the building was due tt>
nothing done by the city. The committee had not met to discuss the
People's Trust building question'in
connection with the approach of forty
steps to the auditorium of the theatre, but neither the building inspector nor the city engineer could recommend that the plans be passed as
they stand at present. Some' modification might be possible as they
wished the building to go ahead, but
the, safety of lives must be considered.
The recommendation that the matter be referred back to tbe building
committee and the building inspector
to discuss with the architects of the
building was adopted, and efforts will
be maide to call a meeting this morning at 11 o'clock       >.
Among other matter taken up was
the Cemetery by-law, which was read
and passed, so that the council will
now have power to purchase Lot 1,

one of the council, but the request

"My husband, children and myself

surprised that 1 can do all of my housework alone, and that I was enred by tbe
doc tor of chronic catarrh. My hns band
was cured of asthma, my daughter of
earache and catarrh of tbe stomach, and
my son of catarrh of the throat. When
I was sick I weighed 100 pounds; now I
