Heaps Interests of Vancouver Buyers���Reported Price
$75,000--EngIish Capital Behind Scheme-WiU Apply to
City For Lease of Suitable Site on Lulu Island���Extensions Planned.
Reeve Weart Wlll Introduce This Ir
portant Matter at Council Meeting Tonight.
As announced exclusively In these
columns yesterday, British capital
has been attracted to and ls about lo
Invest In Industrial enterprises upon
the Fraser river either In the city Itself or In the immediate vicinity. Today the Dally News ls able to Inform
its leaders that regarding the machine and engineering works an Important transaction has taken place
directly bearing upon thlg announcement.
This, In brief. Is that the Schaake
Machine Works has changed ownership, having been sold to the Heaps
lnteiests of Vancouver at the reported /igure of $75,000. It may he re-
callel that a reprasentatlve of these
interests was In the city some two
months back looking for a suitable
site for the location of a plant of
this nature, and was then shown over
the gio mid.
Since then negotiations have been
proceeding lie;ween the city authorities, the Means Interests and a syndicate of Kngiish capitalists, and the
outcome of this will be seen when, at
lhe next meeting of the council, formal application will be made for the
leasing of certain ground on favorable icrms, and upon wbich It Is Intended to erect at once an engineering and machine works giving employment to between five and six bundle.!, men.
It Is understood that thc land ln
question is uron Lulu Island, near
the hildge, and will he some four to
eight acrea in extent when al! is
cleared. It Is adiarent both to water-
frontage nnd to trackage, two of the
necessary features sought. The city
owns the lund in this locality, and it
is reported on the best authority that
tiie Intention of the men behind the
schema is to ;ies'- foi a 'ease of thc
lniil (--f-.i.-ed u.on ibe name terms ss
It has formerly heen oheted to Other
ill!. rivlH Al the BBnte time It lfl
possible that they may gat tbe option
of purchase outright. That is a matter which the council itself will
doubtless decide.
Il Is undetstood that an area* of 15
acres was sought, but when the decision was made, the advantages of
the contiguity of tho site to the main
portion of Ihe citv, and Its actual
situation within tbe city boundaries,
were taken into account.
In connection with t.hls deal lt may
he noted that Mr. E. H. Hea;is was
recently In England, and In fact returned from there only a short time
ago.     I
It therefore appears to be the pur-
nose of the new o'vners of the
Schaake Machine Works to transfer
the business to another and mote
suitable site In the city. Its removal
is all ln line with the intentions entertained by the city with regard to
the development of Front street, ln
connection with the harbor scheme
which will 8hortIy be placed before
the peeopie. It will be remembered
that the present site of the works
was purchased by a lar?e Interest
which acquired a considerable amount
of pioperty along Front street some
time ago.
The Schaake Machine Works has
heen running in this city for the past
seven years. It gives employment to
about ona hundred men. and turns
out work equal to any on the coast,
especially in the line of all kin 's of
murine engines. A little time back
there was some talk of the business
belnp moved to the neighboring ro mi
cipality of Coquitlam, bnt nothing
eame of 1'. ln its new location, with
Its capacity materially increased, affording employment to revera] times
the numher of Its present '.'mployees
and backed by powerful interests, it
will constitute ln itsoi" addi;iun.V
testimony both to tho faith of Investors In tills city and district, Bn '
that the march of pae-r.?.- in Westminster ii already underway.
Edmonds, June 3.���It appears very
probable that the Buinaby council r.
Its weekly meeting tomorrow evening wlll decide whether the presenl
ward system now in \ogue will be
abolished or not. Reeve Weart at the
last meeting of the board of works
mentioned that, in view of the fact
that the electorate had vote.I by a
lar&e maJoi Ity ln favor of the abolition oi the system, he would bring
up the matter nt the next council
A strong fight will no doubt be
waged against the proposition by the
lepresentatlves of the northern districts, Councillors McDonaldi and Fau
Vel, as they claim that their wards
would have no direct representation
If lhe voters of fhe whole of tne
municipality have the say in electing
the proposed six councillors ani a
ree\e Instead of voting for one man
In each ward.
However, the rest of the council,
four In number, have signified their
acceptance of the proposal, and If
put to a vote lt is a reasonable conclusion that the reform will be carried.

The purchase of a new park In the
Queensboro district, a message of
loyalty from the Royal City to King
George on the occasion of his 4 ah
birthday; the procuring of the Senator Jansen as a flieboat for the city
and a letter Trom the B. C. E. R re'
lating to the Tweltth street car line,
formed the salient features at last
night's councll meeting.
Alderman White reported for the
parks committee that they had ln
sight four and three-'juai ter1 acres on
Lulu island which they thought suitable for park purposes, und recommended Its purchase by the city. The
property in question is located in the
central portion of Queensborough in
the northornly section of block 29,
facing Hoyd street. The iepc���� was
adopted, the $10,000 being available
fiom the recent larks by-law passed
by tbe voters last month.
Alderman White drew attention to
the fact that the birthday of His
Majesty, King George V., was that
day being celebrated throughout the
whole empire, his short reP;n hud
s;��\en evidence that he was following
ire the footsteps of his Illustrious
father. The alderman moved that

'Alderman Gray brought up the
question of having adequate lire protection along the wate; front. He, in
company, ha J interviewed Mr. Rogerr
of the Fraser Mills, und the latter
gentleman had consented to an agree

Besides this matter. Alderman
Cray drew atl-uition to tha fact that
the city was employing a pilot at
$150 a month who had very little to
do except in the tall of the year. The
Fiaser Mills people had a man available for such work and he recommended that he be taken on which
would in reality give the city a water
fire-fighting apparatus practically lies

do the work for $800, thus saving the
city $1000, which would pay the cost

will take the matter up with the pilot

Robertson and Rowley relating to the
gasoline boat "Burin" which piled between this city and Victoria. It
stated that up to the present time,
the venture had not by any means
been a success, owing to the merchants in the two cities dealing w(th
independent steamers, who made the
trip at irregular Intervals chiefly to
fill ln time. Unless they received
better support, they would have to
withdraw from the run with the result that the two cities would not

The mayor Btated this was nn important matter to be tfealt with and
suggested that the Industrial committee go into the deal. This was

Messrs. Walker Bros., and Wllkie

thnt the fourteen municipalities which
have direct communication with the
Fraser river band themselves together and furnish the necessary money to distribute literature to the many
people who are continually arriving
on the coast from the east and from
European countries.
They suggested that a meeting, be
held In the board of trade rooms ln
the near'future when representative*
from the municipalities interested
could i^eet together to discuss the
situa 1 ion. Tho matter was refened
to the publicity committee.
It had also been suggested that ��

preparation for the lading of a track

The reason for this new venture of
the  company  Is  the  fact  that  car*

of the cars lose time ln making   the:
switch past the depot on Front street.

Publicity and Active Work Are Doing
Nova Scotia is reaping the fruit-
nf publicity in the matter I iinmi��ra
tion, according tn n recent interview
witli Arthur 8. Barnsteart. secretary
ol Industries and Immigration fer
that province.
"Four years apo, Premier Murray
took step's tq organize a provincial
immigration service wliich nt' the
same time acts ns a publicity bureau," said Mr. ifariisteacl. "Mainly
the operations hnve heen extended to
tiie Hritish Isles where it was felt
conditions would serve in drawing tlie
attention of a part of the many thousands who yeariy come to Canada to
thc .attractions und opportunities ol
Canada's Kast���which, alter all, is
capable of fuller exploitation and lias
not shared ns much as we should
have liked in the great Canada awakening oi the last decade or so. The
industrial life of the province has
made it possible for Nova Scotia to
show a substantial increase of population, amounting to 7.13 per cent.
We had last summer 402,838 people
in Nova Scotia, whicli is 32.704 moro
than we had in 1900. Wn have suffered alike with other parts of older
Canada in the rural to urban migration.
"It was not always so, perhaps, but
1912 is not 1882. In the life of a
generation the fuee of the province
ha; changed in many ways, but
changed, we believe to the ureut advantage of Nova Scotians and offering the openings for our young men
and women that were non-existent in
the earlier years of confederation. So
while endeavoring to let our own people see these facts, we nre hy mentis
of our agency in London, and with
the aid of literature, advertising, and
the use of lecturers in the Mother
Country at the same time proclaiming
them to the great millions of British
peoples who are crowded ill tlieir,
and our, h< ma-land."
"A number of people from the British Isle-i have come to us. Some
natives have returned to their old
farms after absence in the l'nited
States for some years. Others have
come in to labor in the industrial
centres. Altogether immigration has
increased tlie population ul ths province by ahout 20,000 peo;'.'-.
"An average of ahout 250 to 301 n
year, sny 1,200 in all; went to the
farms. Some of these wore farm
laborers who worked for a while with
our farmers ftnd subsequently moved
away. Those-, who had sufficient capital purchased farms while many who
would have located and had acquired
the ne essary acquaintance with local
conditions combined with previous
agricultural exigence were deti rr ��� I
from doing so, owing to lack of capita!.
"Tlie reei's of this e!n?.- have been
recognized and the Government   has
been endeavoring to secure a suitable
method  whereby  assistance  would  he
rendered   in   certain   cases.     Since   I
left  the  city,   Hon.   Premier   Murray
hns introduced a bill into the legislature  to effect  this  very   object,     it
is,  briefly,  an act  for the encottrag��
m?iit   ot   ?ett.ement,   on   farm   land-".
The   aid   is  made   available   not  onljf
for selected farmers from the Britisn
Isles   or  elsewhere  who   wish   to   acquire land of tlieir own, but are un-
able to do so but the like assistance
is  open  to  Nova  Scotians  who  have
the  necessary   agricultural  qualifications.
"Provision is made for the lending
of an amount up to 80 per cent, of
th; appraised or actual value of tiie
land. Tliere is a limit set on the
amount which msy lie loaned oil ary
one property. I think it [* la.OCO.
The Cioveruor-in-Louiieil is hUm auth-
oriaed to purchase out of a fund of
$200,000, lands that will be suitable
for the purpose, sub-divide it into
lots, if nee/I be, and resell it on a.reed
terms for tlie repayment of principal
and interest. By utilizing existing
loan societies or companies to aid w
in this work we think we liave lii'
upon a method that will provide in
a safe way, the necessary funds and
machinery for collection and help to
solve the important pro ileni of the resettlement of many of the unnccui ied

Made Record Since Civil War In
Chicago, .Tune 3.���Meat, has advanced to Ihe highest prices known
since the Civ il war. Retail butchers
ne^un charging from 4c to 5c per
pound for prime cuts of beef, veal
and mutton more than a week ago.
An unusual feature of the soaiing
retail market is that, although Chi-
cago ls the meat producing center of
the country, prices here lor meats are
averaging from le to 2c higher than
butchers are charging in New York
City. No explanation of thl3 startling condition was offered by packers. They blame tho almost prohibitive cost of meat to a shortage of cattle, due to scarcity of corn.
The   following   comparative    table
shows this difference in retail prices:

In the past year there has been a
noticeable increase in the consuming
capacity of prairie markets, due mainly to Increased population, and also
to the fact that a lute und wet season
there furnished an unusually favorable market for early vegetables.
There has been also an inct eased
demand for Hritish Columbia apples
from Australian houses, and for all
fruits and vegetables from coast markets. The home markets, however,
fall far short, of being supplied, and
in the year 1911 the piovince imported the following fruit and fruit products, etc.:

For many centuries IG weeks have
been consumed in getting flax ready
for spinning, and a further four or
five weeks have been necessary in
wliich to bleach the linen product for
the market. By a new process raw
flax can now be converted Into per,
fectly bleached linen fibre ready lor
spinning in one day. Sound straw
will yield 47 per cent of spinning
fibre, realizing $500 per ton on the
market. Bv harvestlne at the proper
time good fihre can be produced, and
a fair crop of seed can be obtained

operation of removing the seel without, as hitherto, injurin', the fibre for

The new process for converting
flax straw into linen within the short
space of a day, has passed beyond the
experimental stage, and capital Invested in thin direction would be a
far better method, because of the certainty of returns, than in gold or

Cobalt, Ont.. June 3.���There wlll be
sW cars of hitrh-grado ore leave the
Cobalt camp this year for Germany.
The down Reserve has renewed Its
contract with the Government of Saxony to supply a eir of ore every second month, the cars to average 102,-
000 ounces of silver each, or 720,000
ounces  for the year.
This Is the second year that this
agreement between the mine and the
Saxony Government has obtained.
The ore is supplied to the royal
smelters, which are maintained for
benefit of the mines there. The Saxony mines are all low-^raie rro^o"!-
lion3 now, and the ore is graded up
with Crown Reserve produti.
Through the tieatment of Cobalt ore
the Saxony smelters have been prevented from closing down.
The price received for Crown Re- \
serve silver in Saxony is a little better than the current New York bar
silver quotations, approximately three
fifths of a cent an ounce being a Ided |
to cover the charges of shipping that
distance. About one-fifth of the
Crown Reserve's output for the ;ear
will go to Germany. During 1911 the
mine produced 3,430,902 ounces.

"tftabllshed  rtevery   morning   except   xew York.'
'-Snnday by The National Printing and j      Why Wheat Went to New York.
Publishing  Co.,  Ltd.,  at  their office, ���    Carefully inquiry  was   made as to
���%l   McKenzie  Street   New   Weutmin-1 the conditions which operated in November last, and which in some degree operate In all seasons, as a countervail  to the lake freight   rates   in
favor of Monti enl.      Tho   conditions
were ascertained to be. availability of
ocean   tonnage   at New York, lower
insurance rates to New York. These
I factors  were  obviously  sufficient   to
divert,  in   November last  nearly  half
of all the Canadian wheat fiom the
west, into American channels.    November is the rush month In the wheat,
trade, mid market considerations may
under such circumstances, rise above
the immediate question of rates. Ma- j
ritie   Insurance   rates   remained   unchanged dining; the year.
Of all the Canadian wheat whicn
came down in 1911 through tho Canadian canal at Sault Ste. Marie, 54.4
per cent clung exclusively to Canadian channels. The proportion in
1910 was fiS.6 per cent, so that the
diversion to American channels was
considerably greater in 1911.
The aggregate value of freight
moved through all of the Canadian
canals last year amounted to over
I 000,000 tons as compared with the
previous vear. This decrease is more
than accounted for by the decline in
traffic at Sault. Ste. Marie, applicable
almost whollv to American ora However an increase of 211,339 ions
through the St. Lawrence canal
points to satisfactory growth as far
as Strictly Canadian business was
concerned. ,
Of all the commodities transported
through the canals of Canala last
vear the proportion was 19.5 fwcont,
in I'll" the proportion was &!������> rer
cent. The large difference in favor
or thc United States is almost wholly
in the volume of or.
accounted  for ..
passed  through tte canal   at   Sanl
St   Marie.     With   regard   tq vessel
tonnage    ihe   propo non    last    year
stood;    Canadian  38.5 per cent, and
United States GG.5 ier cent,
Tilings move fast In the west, it IS
an oid story, that of lhe bare prairie
one yeaf, and the thriving township
the next. Hut Just, as this ia true of
the old Northwest Territories, to it is
true of Hritish Columbia, and particularly of the fit ies of its coast line.
There ate but very few cf us who
cannot look back and make Interesting comparisons between one year,
two years or ten : ears ago. and conditions as tbey ars here today.
Some oi us can go bae'e much further than tJUS, but the fact remains
that   development as   a whole   has
lieen extremely rapid,   ln New- Westminster this growth up 'till  recently
has perlia;.s not  been so marked as
in her neighboring    city, but    today
none but the very dullest can fail to
read the signs of the times.     In the
city itself there is evidence of a new
spirit, abroad    among the    people, a
spirit which finds expression in the
Utterances   of its    public    men, and
wliich has found    further expression
In the    many now movements    that
liave  been  begun of  late.      Whethei
-we look at the passing of the whole
of an im; ortant  batch of bylaws, a |
record May  Day, or the institution ol

their object,    the betterment of    the
City,   the  Mine   spit it   is   seen   working.    ' These  and  a  thousand    other
that might be instanced are born of
Ibis spirit.

George Parker Gets Very Poor Rec!
tion in  Edmonton and Canary
Soccer Circles.
"Kvery little movement has troubles of Us own." That pathetic little
ballad. Is no doubt, being warbled at
this time by Mr. George Parker, after tbe reading of the following article
anent t lie soccer situation in the Dominion today penned by a sport writer on the Edmonton Jounal. It
mlghl be noted that Parker paid a
visit to the coast a few weeks back,
matting a vain attempt to smooth the
dliif. ultles pertaining to the Nanlamo
United and the Thistle's team of Vancouver:
"tieorge Parker, whose name i=
known to fans as the patron saint
of tlie People's Shield, supposedly
emblematic of the association football championship of the Dominion, is
in Kdmonton at present, trying to
drum up a few loctii onirics for liis
tournament in Winnipeg this month.
(Mr. Parker has a tough task ahead of
him to try and raise any enthurlasm
here, as the shield he lepresents does
not arouse even curiosity In these
parts, after the thrilling experiences
of the Calgary Hilllea and Dallies,
who once went a-Inm ting and returned with the cup, but little in tlie way
of Ke'e receipts. Indeed, the I lillies*
sliaie of the reclpts at the last tournament would not have made a decent tip for tlie porter on their observation car.

Is very bitter against

vis't they had never attacked him.
He .'inscrta that he always lost money
cn tie People's 'Shield tournaments,
and dropped a lat bo, bunch of kale
on the tour of tho Corinthians last
Bummer, Mr. Parker has cortainlv
been (ravelins in a lot of hard luck,
alal to add to his troubles a new Oo-
minlon Football Association has been
formed which will present a trophy
of its own to lie emblematic of the
Canadian championship, which is at
it siiould be. Canada is getting large
���enojiiii now to compete for its own
trophies, not for ours c'ie , J bv an
English newspaper as an advertising

The 0. A. A. I", is also, according
?*> Mr. Parker, prosecuting him, but.
In suite of all the knocks he is being
subjected to, he still retains his love
fdr ihe game, and ls anxious to fur-
*tar the interests of soccer in Canada. It'l�� hard-to believe that such
;a well-meaning fellow should make
t��o many enemies, but there is no accounting for the actions of some peo-
l le.
The fact that Mr. Parker had the
temerity to criticize the style of Geo.
Gouldlng, the Canadian champion pe-
dejtiian, and chose an Baalish publication to air his view* In. has also
brought down more criticism on the
devoted head of the People's Shield
champion. He stated to the Journal
last evening that he was convinced
Conidlng had a "lift' to his stride,
and that he would be taten oft the
track at the Swedish games. It does
not seem to have been the most tac:;
ful thing tn the world to criticise the
idol of all Canadian athletes, especially when _Webb and Larner, well-
known walkers, have agreed that
Coulding's motion was perfect, but
then Mr. Parker seems to have the
happy faculty ot always netting Into
hot. water.
He leaves for the east today and It
\�� not thought that a close search of
bis cl< thing would show any signs of
Kdmonton cnirles for the People's
Shield competition. Meanwhile, Her-
aid an'. Albertan, "take keer ot yourselves.''

It is no light matter to be a Japanese wreEtier. It is said that the art
originated In Japan before the Christian era. and that there are no fewer
than forty-eight formulae by which
wrestlers try to bring opponents to
earth���a tort of catch-as-catch-can
with forty-eight Queensberry rules
added. Wrestlers are naked, except
for a narrow girdle, and consequently it lg not easy to get a "hold."
The Japanese have at present 5S7
trained wrestlers In the sei vice ofthe
Wrestling Association, an.l in June
and January of every year there are
great displays at the hall in Tc':io
Beginning at sunrise, the matches
continue until the evening, and It Is
not necessary for a fall to take place
before a victory  can be claimed.
On the floor of the amphitheatre is
a square heap of earth three feet
high, and in that sciuare is the wiest-
llng ring, twelve feet in circumference, sur.ounded by twelve straw-
bags. Let a wrestler's knee touch
ground or the tip of his little flnger
go outside that ring and he bas lost
the match.

which  initiated the art.     Altogether
there are five grades of wrestlers, all I

skill with men    trained   like   themselves.
They begin the matches by first
washing their mouths in a bucketful
of water by the side of tlte ring. No
suggestion is made that they bite

One of the most touching things In

canine affection would make u cube ot

He Resented at First the Comments of
His Unknown Critic.
An art student  was copying one of
Abott S. Thayer's palutlngs nl the Metropolitan Museum of Art In New Vork
one day when a plainly dressed man
I who looked as If he might he a me-
cbflnlc approached and. posting himself
nt  tbe  young  man's elbow,   watched
j blm as he labored over hls subject.
"You've got the angle of Hie mouth
| wrong, and tbe left eye ls too oblique."
: remarked the man decidedly.
The student blinked angrily, nnd the
' hnnd Hint wielded Ibe brush trembled
' slightly, but he took uo notice of Hie
I unsolicited criticism.
I "There la too much yellow in your
j Hesli tint." continued the man.
Still no reply from the studeut. who
ostentatiously slapped on more yellow
palling stiffness which this must have
caused cuu well be Imagined. Thua
couHued and powerless, the offender
was placed In some publlc spot, where
tbe riffraff employed themselves hurling dirt, sticks and stones ut him until
tbey were Hied or until the object of
tbeir sport succumbed, ua not infrequently came to pass.
lt would seem that primarily tbe pillory was Intended for cheats of nil
kinds, such as mountebanks, fraudulent dealers In horses, coal, corn, etc..
and we read In Kablan that the mayor
of London In 1L'S7 "did sharp correction upon bakers for making bread of
light weight. He caused divers of
thein In be put In the pillory, us nlso
one Agnes Haintie for selling of mingled butter." Soothsaying and other
��� nagle arts were also punished with
tlle pillory.
It would appear that famous men did
not appear in the pillory until after
Ki.'lT. when a star chamber decree forbade the printing uf any book or pamphlet without permission from the
archbishop of (Winterbury. the bishop
of London or Hie university authorities aud also mnde uu order that any
printer wlio did not conform to Ibis
and set up a printing press siiould not

By Na-Dru-Co Dyspepsia Tablets
We are continually hearing from
grateful people who have had experiences like that of Miss Alice E. Cooper,
of Niagara I'alls, Out., who writes :
"I wish to express my gratitude to
you for the benefit I received from your
most wonderful Dyspepsia Tablets.
Having taken other medicines without
liaving received the slightest relief, I
heard of your Na-Dru-Co Dyspepsia
Tablets and thought I would give them
a trial. I have been completely cured
of dyspepsia. I will be only too pleased
to advise any one troubled with dyspepsia
to give titeni a fair trial."
Na-Dru-Co Dyspepsia Tablets not only
give the immediate relief from heartburn, flatulence, acidity of the 6tomach
and biliousness, which isso much needed,
but if taken regularly for a few days or
weeks tin y completely cure the most
ajr'iravated cases of stomach trouble.

With ________w--
Iation of the Kaiser's capital crowd
ed into one-room dwellings at the rate
of from fivo to ten persons to c room,
the authorities of Berlin are seriously concerned with the problem that
confronts thetn. Rapid as has been
tha building in Herlin, it has not kept
pace with the growth of the city, and
erection of new houses has heen almost entirely confined to the better
residence section  of  West  Berlin.       i
Berlin  is known the world over as
the (ine large citv without tenements.
It is  indisputably  the   most  modern
and  up-to-date city  of  Europe.   Visitors readily concede-that the artistio
exteriors   of   the   blocks   and   blocks !
of flats, with thoir lar^e inner courts. |
and   the   cleanliness   of   the   streets, i
have not been exaggerated:   Sociology I
ists hold up Herlin as a model, par-
tlcularly  in   America.
And so it is.   Probably in no other
city  are  tlie streets  literally  "scrub- !
bed" daily. Electrically propelled wat- '
er   wagons   with    rotary    thin    wire
brushes pass over t". 3 streets.     The
streets   are   flooded   with   the   water; !
immediately   behind   come   the   stiff
Following, the combined water and
scrub wagons come met with long
hand scrapers lined with rubber, :
similar to those used hy window
cleaners. These they pusli along be- j
fore them, removing whatever water
and dirt may havo been loft by the
big rotary brushes.
When  they pet through  the  streeta
are  aa  clean  as  a  fine  parlor  floor. |
Small   armies  of  men   are  employed
in tendimr the trees and flowers, and
in the parks.
But this is ?o-ciilled "New Berlin."
It is the Berlin of the very progressive municipal administration under
t'e present Emperor, It is the Berlin that the visitors, tourists at 1 sociologists Bee and praise. There is another Berlin which comparatively few
tourists visit, and of whicli many sociologists da not know.
Across the river on the east and
the north is "Old Berlin"���tin'. Berlin
Ot Frederick tlte Great. There the
Berlin authorities have the same ?o-
eioligieal problems that confront the
authorities  of  other cities.
There are some tf.OOO to lO.COO flats,
ranging irom two to nine rooms, in
"New llerliii." It) bid Berlin as high
ns thirteen persons have beei> found
living in one room. The construction of modern flat buildings has
b��eh confined to the new town, and
they have been put up for dividends.
Fairly moderate as the rentals.
ranging from $20 to $>"0 for threj to
six-room steam-heated liet->. might be
considered by Americans ro Onnnn
workman, street car or railroad em-
i love, earning but ���",*"*) to f*rj a mouth,
can  pay such rents.
Accompanied by a ) hysicinri. the
wrier made a short tour of invest!-
gati(/n on tiie north side. It was

they divided the one room witli two
young wofkingmen, to whom they
rented  sleeping s;>ace on  tbe floor,
On another street we rame to a
place in tlie Second c^urt back of one
room and a tiny kitchen.. They were
occupied by a man and wife nnd eight
children. There were three lietli for

places  were typical  of   a  dozen  that
Passengers Are Sipping Iced Drinks
When Stokor Is Broiling.
Whife toiling and sweating in the
stokehold of a big long-distance liner,
1 bave often wondered whether the
passengers dancing on deck or drinking iced drinks under an electric fan
liave the remotest idea of the human
���uttering that is involved in sending
them along at sixteen knots an hour.
They may catch sight of a man in
torn clothes, black as a miner from
top to toe, his face in streaks where
the perspiration has run in a steady
stream from his brow; they may even
go so far as to mutter, "One of the
stokers���jolly hard work in this weather!" But they know nothing of
the  grim  and  ghastly  truth.
In the stoke-hold of every ship the
leading hand of the watch is a picked
man, who is as strong as a young
giant, knows his .work perfectly, and
has fists like legs of mutton. He is
known as the "bully," and his official
instructions are that lie must never
actually use liis fists on the men
while driving them to work. Hp never
does strike the laggards "oflitoally,"
because, if a fireman or a trimmer
complains tliat he has been knocked
ahout, it is always declared that the
men had some private quarrel. And
the word of a fireman does not count
for much whena he iB ten thousand
miles from homo and the boat is behind time.
Whether the men are fresh at the
game or old hands, they all have to
dp their spells of four hours without
a break, even it their heads feel as
though they were bursting and their
limbs burnt or cut. It is enough to
break the heart of any man the lirst
week, while the ship i.s in cotnpari-
tively cool weather, hut the climax
of suffering is reached when the work
has to go on just the same in places
like the Ued Sea or the Indian Ocean.
I To realize al! it means, one must
; consider how trying it is to remain
in a temperature pt about 120 degrees
Fahrenheit without having any work
to do. If you add to that the fact
that tlie men are driven to throw coal
on fiery furnaces in that temperature
you get an idea what it involves for
Heaven, help the man who tries to
shirk worl when the word has been
passed round tbnt the mails are behind time! The leading ha��td, whoso
official instructions are not to bit, forgets his instructions. He work like
a fiend himse'tf, and drives the others
at the same time. If the ship's doctor is unsympathetic, it is almost a
case of   work or die" for the stokers.
We had one fireman who was completely knocked up and he had a badly swollen ankle. He asked the doctor to give him a day or two off, but
was lold to go back to work. He
started his four-hour "shift," at midnight, but in a quarter of an hour
said he could not* go on. He was
struck and bullied, but demanded to
see tlte ship's doct r. Ibe do tor, per-
Ji.e.ps annoyed at being called at tliat
hour, (fave him a cursory glance and
toi J him to gn bark to the stnke-liold.
He struggled wtth the work for a I
ouarter of an hour, and tllen, wIiph 1
his strength failed, he was hit Oh the
hend with n shovel. He statreered I
awny and, in d spa rleap d cverboarJ

v.'iio regarded -it on its arrival with
almost sacred awe. A dance in the
neighborhood seemed an appropriate
opportunity for impressing the county
with her r.ewly-ucquired grandeur;
but, tbe night proving wet, she insisted on reverting to a farmer mode
qt progression and rode pillion be
hind her coachman. Tlie result was
tliat sha caught a violent chill, which
turned to pneumonia. When her relatives were assembled round ber

A request was once made to the
authorities of one of the colleges at
Cambridge that room might be found
on the spacious lawns of their garden for the lady students of Girton
College to play lawn tennis. Guessing clearly enough what would be
the result of the admission of these
students of the fairer sex among the
undergraduates the master replied
that it was ordered in the statutes of
the college that the gardens must be
devoted to the purposes of floriculture
and must not be used for husbandry.
