IY SCHOOLS
Royal Assent Is Asked For
"Duke of Connaught High
School."
Board Will Co-operate With Reception
Committee���Tenders Opened���
Insurance Matters.
The school trustees met last night
and named the various schools in New
Westminster after a royal duke, two
distinguished scientists, a philosopher, the present and a former premier of British Columbia, and a local
Judge and historian. The only school
which retains the name of the locality
In which it is situated is Queensborough, and Lord Kelvin's school
name was not altered.
Subject to H. R. H.'s consent the
new Tipperary high school will be
named the "Duke of Connaught High
Schorl." The others have boen designated as follows:
Boys' Central scbool, the "John
Robson" school.
Girls' Central school, the "Fred
Howay' school.
Sapperton Central school, "Sir
Richard McBride" school.
Sixth avenue school, ""Herbert
Spencer" school.
Seventh avenue school, "Lord Lister" school.
Ready for Ceremony.
In reference to the proposed laying
of the corner memorial stone of tbe
high school by the Governor-General.
Mr. Mercer, the school architect, was
authorized to get the ston" prepared
for the purpose. The whole board
will co-operate with the celebration
committee ns a reception committee.
The architect undertook to defray the
cost of providing tlie silver trowel to
be presented to the duke at the conclusion  of the ceremony.
Steamheatlng Tenders.
The tenders for steamheatlng the
new high school were opened and
found to run as-follows: James fi
McClughan. New Westminster. $9000:
Macdonald * Porry, Vancouver, $11.-
628; Cunningham Hardware Co.. $19.
461;  Canadian Buffalo Pnrpe. $15.13"
Trustee  Perk Observed there must
he some mistake in Messrs. James &
McClughan's tender
have been left outa
It vas remitted to Trustees Peek
and Held, in conjunction with the
architect, to consider the tenders as
a eommittee and report.
It was resolved to wire the (5o*er-
nor-Grn'.-ra! for Ills consent to have
the hieh school named the "Duke of
Connaught."
Insurance Debate.
The Insurance ratea upon the
schools caused a lot of discussion and
indignation and In this connection a
letter from Mr. A. W.- McLeod. insur-
snee actent. reporting upon the subject, was read. It was ultimately decided to authorize Mr. McLeod to
take up the matter with thc underwriters and report further.
Principal W. H. Gray, the new head
of the Sapperton school, was also
present at the beginning of the meeting and lr> conference with the bosrd.
reported that 244 pupils had enrolled
that day.

TORONTO ARRESTS
Diamonds and  Money  Sent to Chief

on Way Here.
Another notch was registered ln
the famous Bank of Montreal robbery
when Chief of Police Bradshaw yesterday received a package from the
police authorities of Toronto containing the sum of $9,500, together with a
quantity of diamonds.
These are supposed to have been
found in the possession of Walter
Davis, alias Walsh, and Alice Davis,
who were arrested in the Queen City
some weeks ago.
The two suspects left Toronto on
Saturday night for the Coast guarded
by Constable T. Walker of the local
force and Detective Fraser cf the
Plnkerton Agency. They are accompanied by a trained nurse, who will
look after tbe woman. Since being in
jail in Toronto awaiting the officers
from this city, she has complained ot
illness and it may be necessary for
them to stop off at Winnipeg in order to allow her to recoup.
All beTng well, however, lt is expected the quintette will arrive In
this city on Wednesday morning. If
this Is done it is probable that Davis
and his wife will be arraigned before
Magistrate Edmonds at the same
time as Dean comes up for another
hearing.

ANCIENT ORDER
NOW IN SESSION
Acting    Mayor    Welcomes    Visiting
Foresters to City���Burnaby Entertains Delegates.
From the latest developments ln
connection with the visit of the Duke
of Connaught to the city It is unfortunately very probable that the
proposed trip of His Royal Highness
to the Fraser Valley and Chilliwack
will be cancelled entirely.
At a meeting of the reception com
mittee beld iu the board of trade
room in the city hall yesterday a wlrt
received by Acting-Mayor Gray from
Col. Lowther, aide-de-camp to the
duke, was read, lt stated that the
royal party would not arrive in Westminster until 12 noon on September
21. Much disappointment was expressed by the members of the committee
at the hour chosen for the arrival of
the Governor-General, as it was confidently expected that he would reach
the city somewhere about 10 o'clock
on the great day.
After some discussion as to the best
means of procedure regarding the
situation, Secretary Stuart Wade was
instructed to wire Colonel Lowther
as follows: "Citizens committee pro
gramme under consideration covers
the entire day and evening, from IC
a.m. on September 21. Can't this be
arrauged for;  urgent."
In the meantime no arrangements
can be made regarding the reception
until an answer to the wire is received.
In connection with the proposed trip
to Chilliwack the concensus of opinion at the meeting was that it would
have to be cut out entirely, as it
would probably be impossible to ascertain until the day of his arrival
whether the duke would feel disposed to go.
Mr. Allan Purvis, Interurban man
ager of the B. C. Electric, who was
present at the meeting, stated that it
would be useless for the company tc
flt up a special train at tlie cost of
several thousand dollars if they were
not certain as to whether the royal
party would make the trip down the
valley.
In connection with the decoratior
scheme for the city. Mr. Stuart Wadt
hns set the ball rolling by asking tht
VVo-.ren's Council and varlou' **.*\ \
ladiea' associations interested ln thc
Governor-General's visit, to Bet to
work and prepare flags, pennants
wreaths and floral festoons, to be
used for decorating purposes.
"The time is so short." stated one
ivember of the reception committee
"that if New Westminster is to put
on an appearance to compare favorably with other cities of the same
sii.e, no time must be lost.
BURNABY'S BRIEF SESSION.
Four Representatives Absent���Routine Matters Soon Disposed of.
Edmonds. Aug. 26.���One of the
the shortest meetings of the Burnaby council was held this evening by
reason of the absence of four of the
representatives. Reeve Weart ls still
back In the East while Chairman
MacDonald, of the board of works,
Acting-Mayor McGregor, and Council
lor Brltton were missing from the
chamber.
Accounts and other routine matters
were disposed of In committee and
after hearing two deputations regarding water Bupply, those present
adjourned the meeting to Tuesday
evening, September 3.
Proposed   Reciprocal   Agreement   Between   Canada   and   Australia
Likely to be Discussed.
Ottawa, Aug. 2C���Sir George Reid
Australian trade commissioner, wiu
arrived in Canada several days ago.
and proceeded to the Maritime'prov
inces, will be ln Toronto ln the course
of a day er two. Hon. George E. Fob
ter left for bis constituency, Nortb
Toronto, last night.
It is assumed in departmental c'r
cles tbat there will be a meeting between Sir George and Mr. Foster tt
llscuss the proposed reciprocal agree
ment between Canada and the Com
���nonvealth. Any negotiations wblci
may be commenced will be continued
when Mr. Foster goes to Australia
next winter as a member of the lm
perial trade commission.
In the past the frequent change
of government which took place lr
Australia have tended to prevent
much progress being made with negotiation between Canada and the Com
monwealth. Advices received here
are to the effect that the tenure ot
office of the present labor adminlstra
tion is not very secure. A change ol
government in Australia would a3 f
matter of course cause delay in the
framing of any definite reclproca'
trade agreement.

Jay morning and the annual convention of Columbia District of the Ancient Order of Foresters was in order.
Acting Mayor Wells Gray officially
welcomed the visitors to the Royal

and during the time they, the delegates were not busy framing new
constitutions, by-laws, etc., he felt
sure they would find enjoyment visiting the different places of interest in
the city and district and seeing for

them to take every advantage of It
during their brief stay.
The Act-lng Mayor was followed by
Mr. Fred Mcintosh, who spoke on behalf of Courts Royal Columbia
Friendship and East Burnaby, these
three dividing the honors of entertaining the guests. Response was
made by ex-Alderman Fulton of Victoria, who holds the position of Chief

an early opening of the other room '
is expected.
Owing to the fact that the teacher
appointed to the Barnet school was
unable to flnd accommodation for his
wife and family he was forced to
relinquish his position and a few days
will elapse before another is appointed.
This morning, the school    trustees
made a  trip  throughout the  municipality inspecting the different school
buildings and seeing that everything
was ln  shape for the    school    year.
Vancouver Heights showed a large in
crease and although an addition wa
made to the building there are nov.
nearly  200  pupils    attending    there
which   will  necessitate the  construe
tion of another wing on the scbool in
the very near future.
Towards this end, a by-law Is be

the consent of the council, this will
be submitted to the voters in the near
future for ratification.
New buildings are needed through
out Burnaby and unless more monev

pupils.

Kellington introduced a by-law to te-

bringing about another phase of the
already many-sided situation that
exists between the city and the New
Westminster Gas Company. Tne motion to repeal the by-law was regularly moved and seconded and adopted'
by the council.
At the instance of the city solicitors the gas case has ben adjourned
for an  Indefinite  period to give the
city time to prepare Its case.   AH indications are that the hearing of the
case will take place at the fall assizes.
Want Rail Facilities.
A letter was received frcm the B.
C. Transport Company notifying the
council that as the new wharf being
built by the company on lots 91 to-
100  inclusive  was    now*    practically
completed, the question of extending'

I ered.
The Bwitch is at present extended"
to the head of tbe wharf, and it was
suggested that lt be continued down
to the Vulcan Iron Works. The cost
of making a base for the switch preparatory to the laying of the rails
| would cost in the neighborhood of
$3000 and it was suggested that if the
city would agree to do the preliminary work the company would pay the
G. Ji. R. the cost of laying the rails.

Inability   of   Tramway   Company to
Haul Sufficient Rock Is Reason
Ascribed.
The inability of the B. C. B. R. in
hauling rock from the government
luarry at Vedder mountain to, the
bunkers at Cloverdale was the chief
jause of the delay in completing the
Paciflc highway through Surrey. So
jtated Mr. F. J. MacKenzie, M.P.P.,
when interviewed yeeterday.
The employees of the government
on tbe road were being kept Idle some
days solely on account of the transportation company not living up to
its agreement in npt providing enough
trains to move the rock.   ':.*""
This Is regretted on account of the
fact that the rainy season Is drawing
near when work wlll have to be halted.
The bunkers at Cloverdale have a
capacity of ten cara a day, but, during the past two months not more
than two cars In two days have been
unloaded there.

Washington, Aug. 26.���Although
Mr. Innes, the British charge and
counsellor of the embassy, who was
recalled from his vacation on the
Maine coast to carry out certain directions of his government regarding
the Panama canal legislation, remains ln Washington, he has made
no sign of a purpose to prevent any
fresh representations to the state department on this subject.
The original British protest having
been ineffective ln preventing the
enactment of the objectionable legislation and there being now a year
and a half to elapse before the question of the actual payment of tolls
In the canal can become a practical
one, there does not appear to b��
special reason for urgency In negotiations. These may be expected to
develop the position of both governments and possibly Indicate the future course of the British in the
event tbat a satisfactory arrangement can not be reached with the
United States for the removal of
threatened discrimination against
British shipping. .
Although President Taft was not
himself convinced of the soundness
of the assertion by Chairman Adamson of the house committee on interstate and foreign commerce, and
other congressmen thnt foreign shipowners already have at hand the
means of testing legally their right
to use the Panama canal on even
terms with American shipping, it is
believed thst he is perfectly willing
to allow this issue to be made np
and tried out. Tbe possibility of the
adoption of this.method of securing
a judicial determination of the British right may prevent the negotiations between the two governments
from being carried to the point of an
ultimatum, for several years at least.

the .irons points of the by-law, AldV
Dodd seated that at least twenty-
t.irce sto! Ies below Royal avenue in
thr -"'��� limits were not conforming
to th�� sa-iltary regulations.
Acting-Mayor Gray Btated that some-
stables in the city were not flt for a
horse to live In and advocated a rigid
inspection of all such places b.v the
sanitary inspector. The new by-law
calls for the location of cow and
horse stables at least twenty-five feet
from the house of the owner, and that
the manure be kept in an enclosed

There is only one explanation for the
numbers of enthusiastic letters that we
receive praising Na-Dru-Co Dysprpr.ia
Tablets, and that is that these tablets
certainly do cure any kind of stomach
trouble.
Here is a typical letter from Miss
Eliza Armsworlhy, Canco, N.S.:
"It is with pleasure I write to inform
you that your Na-Dru-Co Dyspepsia
Tablets have proved of great value to
me. I tried remedy after remedy but
without any lasting gocd. Ilavir.g heard
of your tablets curing sueh cases as
mine I decided to give them a fair trial.
They proved satisfactory in my case."
The remaikable success of Na-Dru-Co
Dyspepsia Tablets is such a success as

CANADA TO PROTEST
PANAMA CANAL Bill
BIG AUTO MERGER
NOW TAKES MELD
British Columbia Is Most Vitally Concerned���Wlll   Cc-cperate   With
Horns   Government.
Ottawa, Aug. 26.���The news that
President Talt had signed the Panama Canal bill was received with considerable interest at Ottawa. it is
understood tliat the question will be
taken up by the cabinet and a vigorous protest will likely' be made
inrou^gh the British authorities. In
fact, the two governments will cooperate in objecting to the measure.
The Canadian government has beeu
waiting until President Taft signed
the bill before taking action as until
then no official cognizance of the
measure could be taken.
Hon. George E. Forster. as Minister cf Trade and Commerce, Ib taking
particular Interest in the subject and
has been closely watching developments. Ills department, as well as
others, has been collecting statistics
and data which will be useful to the
government in preparing its case.
11 < various Canadian interests affected, particularly the railways, will
also cooperate with  the government.
One of the conditions existing and
perhaps the strougest argument
against any discrimination in favur of
American shipping, is that the United
Slates vesseU now have free use of
the Dominion's expensive c .iai system cn the Great Lakes and thnt an
even greater American than Canadian tonnage passes through Canada's Sco canal. Canada has always
scrupulously observed treaty rights
on the lakes.
British   Columbia  is    the  province
perhaps  most  vitally offected.    It  is
feared that   American   ships   sailing
from   New   York   for San   Francisco, I
for instance, passing through the canal  toll   free,  could    continue on  to i
Vancouver with a fresh cargo and re-
earn  toll  free from  British  Columbia',
to  the   Atlantic  seaboard.    Canadian
or British  ships would be  unable to'
compete against Buch discrimination.'

Coast���Line Now Cleared.
Vancouver,  Aug.    26..���  Canadian
Pacific   Railway  traffic,  blocked  and
congested because of a rock and mud |
slide whicli occurred at a  point two I
and   one-half   miles   east   of   Rogers'
Pass on Saturday, is now just beginning to b..' straightened out. The line j
was cleared about 8 o'clock last night:
and trains began arriving In Vancouver today.    The first one    to arrive I
was   the   Vancouver  express,   due  on j
Saturday night at 10:15 o'clock.      Itj
reached   Vancouver  thU   morning   at I
8:2.r. o'clock.
The next train to arrive will bs
yesterday's No. 1 from Montreal, the
Imperial Limited, which was due in
her? nt S:2.J yesterday morning. It
is running as today's No. 2 on time.
The other trains, of which there are
five, will bo arranged in succession
twenty  minutes apart.
The slide waa the result of a heavy
rainfall In the region of Rogers' Pass.
A small creek which crosses the
main line at a poinl near where the
slide occurred, was dammed by the
slide. The stream overflowed Its
banks ind washed out part of the
roadbed. The slide was about 100
feet in length and averaged about 15
feet in depth. It was composed of
mud and rocks, so that to get It out
of the wuy It was necessary to do
some blar'ing.
As soon as word reached Revelstoke two steam shovels and a large
gang or section hands were sent out
and started the dirt flying ln short
order.

Servian government protest vigorously to the Porte.
At a mass meeting, held Sunday to

a report was drawn up for presentation to King Peter, who has returned
to Belgrade from his snmmer holiday.
Later advices received from Sien-

BAD   POLICY.
A Montreal despatch is responsible
for the statement that a financier,
who has successfully formed a large
syndicate for the acquisition of 800,-
000 a^xes of Peace River land, has
made arrangements for transplanting
thither a large number of Boer settlers  from  the Transvaal.
With the question as to whether the
Boers and the Poace river country
will agree, we are not here concerned,
but the practice of inducing large or
.small bodies of the inhabitants of one
jpart of the empire to migrate to another, is a bad practice, and one to
be discouraged as much as possible
The people of the British Isles, or
<even of Northern Europe are fair
game for the private or governmental
immigration agent, but Canada should
be no field for the emissaries of an
Australian state, as it is at present,
neither should the South African
Union be robbed of its settlers, when
both here and there the land cries
out for men.
British subjects in any part of the
world have themselves to please, but
the spectacles provided by parties in
terested in their removal are usually
of the rosiest, and the haze of ten
thousand miles may have distorted
the view of the Dutch settlers who
are said to be about to enguge on an
other grand trek.
This is but one of the many mat
ters upon which some definite line
might be taken at the next conference
of the representatives of the Over
seas dominions with each ether and
ihe Imperial  government.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ parcel
post service. Why should it cost
more to send a package from here to
Hamilton than from here to Liverpool?
Why should the Canadian Government accept a parcel weighing
eleven pounds from a man In Toronto, for transmission to England,
refuse to accept from the same man,
any package weighing more than four
pounds for transmission to any point
lu Canada? There is no reason for
It; at least no good reason. It la a
i condition of affairs highly satisfactory to the express companies, but
even at the risk of wounding their
sensibilities, there must be a change
ln the present conditions and a
change ln tbe direction of a government-owned and operated express
system, as a branch of the postoffice

FRIEND OF LATE KING
SIR     EDWARD     SASSOON     DIES
FROM  AUTO ACCIDENT.
He Was the Second of a Great House
Founded by David Sassoon, an Armenian In Businiss First In Persia and Later I -i Bombay���Father
Founded a Huge Fortune and an
Important Family.
After a loner illness, the death has
taken place of Sir Edward Sassoon,
Unionist member for the Hythc Division in the British Parliament, and
one of the late King Edward's closest personal friends. Sir Edward,
who was only recently predeceased
by his cousin, Mr. Arthur Sassoon,
met with a serious accident in January last at Cannes, while motoring
tn the cnlf links. The oar encountered a restive Knrse, and though the
chauffeur took a sharp turn to the
left in the hope of avoiding the animal, there was a collision nf irreat
violence, The ear. after striking the
horse, ran into n tree, and. rebi.und-
THE    PARCEL   POST.
The two houses ol congress are ir,
���conference respecting the establish
ment of the parcel post system In tht
United Stales, and some leg'.slatioi
will undoubtedly be approved within
a day or two. The matter tlrst came
up in the shape of a "rider" attached
by the house of representatives to
the postal appropriation bill, providing fer the same domestic rates and
regulations in the matter of parcel
post as those effective between the
United States and many other coun
tries.
The international rate is twelve
cents a pound, and the weight limit is
eleven pounds; the domestic rate is
sixteen cents a pound and the weight
limit is four pounds. The house did
away with this inequality; it also pro
.vlded for a five cent a pound rate between points on the same rural mail
free delivery route.
The senate has substituted another
bill by way of amendment, establishing a parcel post, the charges varying with the distance and risine
from five cents to twelve cents a
pound. It goes much further in the
direction of a real parcel post, service
than does the measure passed by the
house, but it departs from the wise
principle of the flat rate which his
been so big a factor in making the
poBtofflce a money maker for the
government, and a money saver for
the people.
The Philadelphia Record, however
considers both proposals to be shortsighted and Ineffective. It believes
that the weight limit shoiild be at
least ten times the proposed maximum of eleven pounds. In Germany
it says the parcel post carries everything from live fowl to a weeklv
���wash, and in Kngland it caries te
the city dweller, ln time for his
breakfast, fish taken that same morning from the sea. The New York
Sun, on the other hand, believes (hat
the way to start a parcel post system, is to start it, and respecting the
senate measure, commonly known as
the Bourne Bill, it says:
It is unlikely tnat B**,***r,m
Bourne's scheme for a parcel
post, now included in the post-
office bill, should it become a
law, will prove entirely satisfactory in operation. Its chief value
lies in the evidence Its pdoptlon
by the senate supplies that the
government iB no longer to deny
this service to the public. Any
kind of n parcel post will do as
the starting point for improvement. Once establish 11 it will
never be abandoned.
As for the terrifying predictions that have been made with
regard to the effect of a parcel
post on country and suburban
merchants, let us await their
non-fulfilment with complete patience. The retail trading of the
nation is not going to be monopolized by a few mall order
houses simply because quick,
safe and cheaper transportation
of parages haB been undertaken
"by the government, any more
than it has been by the department stores against which that
famous political economist., Richard Croker, was wont to raise a
(trembling    and    plaintive   voice.
I.ATE SIR  EDWAKD SASSOON,  M.P.
ing, fell qver a six-foct embankment.
Sir Edward received a terrible shaking, snd his face was badly cut. Deceased was enormously wealthy. The
foundation of his fortune was laid by
David Sassoon, who fled to Bombay
from Persia, where, during the Armenian troubles, he was in danger of
assassination. In Bombay lie founded the house of Sassoon, the only
important firm not in the hands of
Parsees. About 18G8, after the death
of David Sassoon, his Bon, the late
Sir Albert, then known as Abdallah,
came to England in company with his
hslf-bmthers Reuben and Arthur, Sir
Kdward Sassoon was a son of Sir Albert, succeeding to the title in 1895.
He was educated at London University. In 1887 he married Aline,
daughter of Baron Gustave de Rot s-
child. She died in February, 1909.
He was an honorary major in the
Duke of Cambridge s Hussar Yeomanry. Sir Edward resided for two
years in China, and gave much study
to Oriental problems. He was also
an authority on finance and bimetallism, anil was much interested in the
subject of ImjK'rial telegraphs. He
emphasized his connection with the
Kast by the ownership of two residences in India. Garden Reach, Poo-
na. and Suns Sonci, at Bombay. He
is succeeded in the baronetcy by Mr.
Philip Albert Gustnve David Sassoon,
���vh ��� was bortl in 1888. His only
daughter Is Sybil Rachel, who wa-4
born in 18:M. Sir Edward Sussoon's
line residence in Park lane, London,
at wllich his death took place, was
designed aud built by Air. Barney
Raruatn. Now it in all a modern
mansion should be, but in its original state it showed a want of architectural refinement. At tlie last election Sir Edward was returned without opposition for Hythe. which he
had represented since 1899. His son
has been elected at the bye-election
to fill the vacant seat.
Boiled Alive.
In English statutes of the sixteenth
century the punish-nent set down for
the crime of murdering by poison was
boiling alive, and a girl was actually
executed in that ghastly fashion. In
1538 Fsther Stone of Canterbury suf-
I fered the asms death.   A curious ac-
| count is in existence which gives the
amount paid  "for two men who set
jthe kettle and parboiled him" and "to
the women that scoured the kettle."
jTh.! sentence was not always carried
out with so much ferocity, for cul- I
prits were sometimes hanged before J
being boiled. In one case it is record- j

HARD  TIMES   FOR   BILL
TURNBULL AT WHITE  ROCK.
White Rock, Aug. 26.���The residents of this summer resort are well
satisfied with the res'It of the Minto
cup games, and offer the citv of New
Westminster the heartiest cngratula
tlons. Immigration Off'oer TV!1 Torn
bill is nursing a sore leg and also a
sore arm  following Saturday's game
He strained his leg in the game'
but tho other accident he sustained
shaking hands with many of the sup
porters of the Royal City team.
If True,  It Is Thought  He Will    Be
Seen With* Torontos When
They Come Here.
A rumor gained ground last evening in tlie city that Newsy Lalonde,
the Btar and high priced home player of the Vancouver team, had packed his duds following Saturday's
game, and is now speeding for Toronto, where he will assist the aggregation of R. J. Fleming on the Island grounds.
If this is true there is a strong
probability that Lalonde will be seen
on the line-up of the Torontos when
they oome west In quest of the Minto
Cup. This v ould mean that the
Queen City team would have two of
the star home men In the game, viz.,
Billy Fitzgerald and Lalonde. With
them also there would be Buck Marshall, Dave Gibbons and other well
known players. Quite a formidable
outfit for the Salmon Bellies to contend with.
Manager Gray could not be located
laat evening, but it can be imagined
that Westminster's interests will be
protected.
Treasurer Herb Ryall. when spok
en to last night said that this was
an old move of the Eastern men.
Ever since the Earl of Minto gave
the cup the eastern magnates had
tried to have things their own way.
When the Salmon Bellies made the
successful trip to Montreal in 1908,
the Shamrocks signed up every star
player in the game to defend the silverware, but on a nrotest made by
Charlie Welsh, the trustees ordered
the Shamrocks to field their original  team.
Then acain, a few years later, the
Reginas blew into this city with a
pickup team from the eastern league
and despite the endeavors of the
Westminster club secretary, not a
word could be obtained as to their
line-up until  they hit the city.
It's all in the game, says Herb, and
't wmild be well for the officials of
the Westminster club to keep track
of what's doing and to acquaint the
western trustee, S'r Richard McBride
with the present situation.
This, of course, is in line, providing
Lalonde has gone back east.
Torontos Are Champions.
The Toiontos have practically won
the championship of the B'.g Four, for
only an unlocked for series of defeats
would now take that title from them
This is the first time for over twentj
years that the blue Bhirts have beld
the title of champions, and as it has
turned out, they do not hold lt with
the old teams in the league, and they
do not bold the undisputed title ir.
the Kast. It Is to be hoped that tbey
will take the trip west and let the lacrosse fana see how their millionaire
team shapes up with' -New Westminster champions and also with the N.
L. U. title holders. Of course, With
their hand-picked collection of stars,
the Torontos should be able to beat
the best that the N. L. V. can put up
but lt would be interesting to see just
how far they do outclass the teams
of the old league.���Ottawa Journal.
Splendid Chance for Cup.
As to their games on the Coast, the
blue shirts have a royal chance to
bring back the Minto Cup. There Is
not a weak department on the team,
from ��[oal out, they being one of the
strongest twelves ever gathered together. They will meet New Westminster ln the Royal City, and, with
capable officials, should win. The
strong point cf the present leaders
of the coast league Is their speedy
field. In the Torontos they will stack
up against the fastest team In tbe
east, and one that has proven Itself
capable ot standing the gaff. Buck
Marshall. Dave Gibbons, Billy Fitzgerald, Eddie Longfellow and Art
Warwick have all plaved on the New
Westminster field. The Roval City
grounds are famous for the slope
that fools the visiting club. The Torontos. by taking an early departure,
can get a week or so of practice on
the'banks of the Fraser, and stand a
grand chance ot capturing the highest honors In lacrosse, the Minto
cup.���Toronto News.
PECULIAR   SITUATION.
Calgary Hlllhurst  Club   Hangs en to
People's Shield.
Montreal, Aug. 26.���W. Jones, representing the Ontario Football Association, was ln Montreal Saturday.
A peculiar situation haa arisen out
of the People's Shield, which the Fort
William Club of the New Ontario Association won at WinP''Jg in July
last. Although the Fort William Club
has made several applications for. the
trophy lt has not yet come their Wa*
and Is said to be still ln the hands
of the Calgary Hlllhurst Club, which
won lt tn 1811.
The New Ontario Football Association, on behalf of the Fort William
Club, Is proceeding against the Manitoba Football Association for possession of the trophy, and as the president ot the Manitoba Football Association Is also vice-president ot the Dominion Football Association, Mr.
JoneB' visit here ls generally believed
to have a connection with that matter also.
HOCKEY  IN EAST.
Two Leagues Trying to Secure Foothold in Toronto.
Toronto, August 22.���Toronto wlll
bave a plethora of professional hockey this winter from the present outlook. Two leagues are endeavoring to
secure a foothold in the Queen City,
and the completion of the Arena Gardens means that the greatest teams
ln the world are to perform before
the local hockey fans. Mr. Emmett
Quinn, president of the National
Hockey Association, will visit Toronto
the end of the week, to complete ar-
rangementB for the entry of the N.
11. A. team, while lt ls known that
Mr. Lol Solman is behind the Tecumsehs, who will seek a berth In the
new league.
Coming on top of the report from
Montreal to the effect that Billy Nicholson had been signed to manage the
Tecumsehs, ls a denial from Mr. Sol-
mon, who statea that not one man
has been signed to date. It Is stated,
however, that Charlie Querrie will be
In charge of the Indiana on ice or
off, and that the present lacrosse
management will control the hockey
club. This means that Eeddle Mc-
Cafl^ry and Mr. Belllngham of Montreal, will have to seek elsewhere to
promote a hockey club. The Tecumsehs were supposed to have purchased a franchise in the N. H. A. last
winter, but this fizzled out when the
Arena was not completed. The N. H.
A., however, fined the Tecumseh
cluh something like $1,000, which fine
still remains unpaid.
Mr. Percy Quinn, who ts back of
the Toronto franchise ln the N. H. A..
says that be has his team pretty well
lined up and that Jimmy Gardner,
formerly of the Wanderers, will lead
hiB aggregation. He goes further
and states that his club has been
guaranteed dates at the Arena Gardens, and that if the Tecumsehs enter the new league, that the N. H. A.
will continue as a five club organization, excluding the present Ottawa
team. Another club, however, may
be secured to represent the Capitals.
"Old" at Thirty-Four.
A ball player is a kid at twenty-
flve, while at thirty-five he has not
reached the veteran class. Not so in
lacroBse, when such a brainy manager as Charlie Querrie is termed
"old" at thirty-four. Querrie joined
the Torontos in 1901, and has been in
the big league twelve years and was
34 years old July 25. Querrie was
with the Torontos until 1905, when he
joined the Tecumsehs and in 1906 was
made manager of the Indians. Since
then the Indians have until this year
always been up fighting for first
place and won two championships, one
In 1908 and one in 1911. Querrie ha?
probably taken as much punishment
as any home player who ever played
lacrosse and is still playing good lacrosse, iu fact this year he is plavin~
better than ever and is still considered one of the star players of the Big
Four.

CITV OF NEW WESTMINSTER, B.C
ihprp Is still a pxent deal or noise. I
am Inclined to Ue nervous, anil noise*
trouble in*, exceedingly.
The Hrewer family consists ot Mar
Kant, nyed twenty two���nnd I may us
Well admit here that she was the prin
cipal Inducement for my visit; Helen,
commonly called Nell, acetl seventeen
Cus. n boy of twelve, ar.d Alec. ten.
I closed my eyes on the niaiit ol
the 3d thinking how much plensuotet
would lie my awakening than It Unci
heen on other Fourths, when from 1
o'clock In tbe morning there nail been
a succession ot explosions. Hreiikt.ist
was lo lie tit II o'clock, nnd I need not
arise till nfter S I slept soundly till
half past -I. when I awoke, thought
how delightful It was to heat no sound,
turned over tor another nap, when u
bright light was Hashed In luy eyes.
Surprised. I sat up and looked to
ward the window from wbicb direction
it seemed to come. Tbe only light was
the inclining dawn beginning togllinniHr
through lhe casement Not a sound
broke the stillness. Thinking that I
lied been disturbed by a meteorite or
H huge tiretly-possibly a flush of lightning, though I could see stars through
the window-1 closed my eyes again
I wns sinking Into a delicious slumber
when another flash awakened me. This
time it was of longer duration, and a
vivid point of light Just above tbe window sill blinded me to everything else.
It lasted for perhaps ten seconds, then
went out suddenly,
I hud suffered so-much of Fourth of
-Inly mornings from small boys or girls
arousing me b.v means of firecrackers
tliat I was long in divining the cause
of this altered method of torture. Some
youngster had (lashed un electric hand
lamp In my eyes Probably (ins or
A lh <��. who, deprived of the pleasure of
��i ring  persons on  this  Fourth of
July morning with explosions, had Invented a method of achieving the same
end My hopes or a quiet Fourth "fell
Ihlck In the blast" I realized that
while we mny pass laws against youth
lol armaments, while we may bribe
ihe yonili to discontinue harmful and
annoying practices, we simply Jump
out of the frying pun Into the flre. or.
rather, in tills case I had Jumped out of
lhe fire Into the frying pan. 1 bad
simply got rid of the hammering of
lhe 'Tinker on the drum of my ear In
twelve lhe flr.sh of the electric hand
i'.ni|i nn tlie retina of my eye.
I lay tossing lu bed till 7 o'clock,
then arose, dressed myself and went
out on ihe porch The morning was
beautiful, ihough the day promised to
lie hot. An hour and a hnlf must
flnpse before breakfast, and 1 expert-
| enced the pangs of hunger. Kitting
down In a wicker chair. I threw my
hilt on fhe porch, for niy brow was perspiring, and waited. Happily 1 fell
asleep.
I dreamed of pastures green and
cool streams. Rut presently there
came In my dream a great winged insect and perched on a little bald spot
on the top of my head Just wbere the
Indian wore his scalp lock. He tickled
the skin, and I put my band up to
scare hlm away. He flew away for
about six Inches and. returning, lit
again In the same place,    A second
time I drove Mm away, but he flitted
1 about my band, biting It and bounding
from It as though angry at being disturbed.
I awoke, nnd. true enough, there was
tbe monster Just settling again ou my |
bald   spot    I   fought   him,   and   be |
fought me, till,  becoming  thoroughly i
awake. 1 got a better view of him and I
saw he was composed of yellow and i
blue  paper.     Moreover, one end  of a I
string was attached to his body and j
the otber to a stick which protruded
from a  window Just above my head. ,
Suddenly my tormenter was Jerked up
Iuto tbe window, aud 1 heard a con
fusion of giggles.
"Wherein." 1 asked myself. "Is the
new Fourth of July superior to Ihe
���Id? Formerly tbere was but one
point of attack on a mini's sensibilities���tbe ears. When youngsters were
permitted to make noises tbeir attention wan fixed on tbe articles with
which they caused the torture. Now
tbat tbey are not permitted to make
noises, their attention Is fixed on tbe
tortured, and where their firing of
crackers, guns, cannons and other
death dealing articles caused but one
kind of suffering their Inventive gen
lus now causes n multiplicity. Would
that the great republic bail uever been
born-or 1."
I left the house to tbe young scamps
and went ofT into lhe grounds, sitting
on a rustic seat under a tree. Hut
here real Insects��� mosquitoes- were
evidently celebrnting an anniversary
of their own, for tbey bit my face, my
bands and my neck, and I wns forced
to keep in constant motion to drive
them nway. So I got up and walked.
Ves. I wns forced to walk for an hour
treadmill fashion, when 1 was relieved by a call to breakfast
"How nice II wns this morning." remarked Mrs. ISrewer, "not to be awakened by those horrid crackers! 1 dou't
remember ever before sleeping on a
Fourth of July morning after daylight
Did you enjoy It. Mr. CollamoreV"
"Very much," I replied. I cast my
eyes nliout the ta tile to detect wbo had
annoyed me. my gaze lighting on the
boys. To my surprise, they showed no
consciousness of guilt. Hut tiy the
way Nell |mked her nose down near
her plate in an effort to conceal her
features I knew thnt sbe had liee.o my
torturer.
And here I will remark Ihat. despite
the reputation ot the small boy fnr
waywardness, for causing his mother
distress b.v climbing trees nnd getting
Into mndholes wliile dressed In his
best suit, for smashing things without
reason or provocation, he Is not to lie
���omparcd for pure cusscdncss with
certain girls from fifteen to eighteen
I refer to flic kind of girl commonly
colled hoyden nnd in some cases toin ,
boy. And I will further remark that
Nell Hrewer wns the quintessence ot
Ibis kind of girl. Such girls always
have what we call an Innocent way |
with tbem. They can look purer
���uveoter. more pious, than any other
girl But when Satan comes out lu
Ihem hc dances n highland fling.
I was sitting nru'i- breakfast with
Margaret on ilie porch near the (loot
of the conservatory. Margaret was
discoursing on tlie changed Independ
erne day-how mucb more restful,
more quiet than the old Fourth
Everybody seemed to be harping con
lilllllllly on the subject. They didn't
harp so much before It bad ended. I
was sitting with my buck to the con
servalory when I felt cold water sprinkled against the buck of my neck run
down my spine.
"Otl, Mr. C'ollauiore." cried Nell. "I'm
so sorry! I was watering the plants,
and the sprayer slipped."
"Nell." said .Margaret, "yon should
be more careful."
"It's of no consequence. I assure
vou." I said, with the politeness expect
ed of a guest.
"1 hope 1 didn't wet you." said .\e||
"Not nt all. only a tew drops; incy
feel dellclously cool," and I rubbetl mv
neck and milled shirt collar wun mj
handkerchief.
Hut ns the dny wore on I had m.v re
venge on this family who delighted in
the new Fourth. Tommy fell nfl Unroof of (he barn find broke bis arm
Alec, not having nny firecracker* to
set ufl. set tire to the dry glass ami
���nine near burning up nil the buildings
ou the premises. For Nell's anuov
luces to me I resolved to puni-di her

When I got into dry clothes I sskeo
Margaret to go for n drive with me In

"Isn't It nice to ride on the Fourth of
July not fearing the horses will be

MARVELS AT  PROGRESS.
Dr.
The  West  Is  Great  Lesson   to
Ryan,  of  Kingston.
That the Catholic Mutual Beneflt
Association is making rapid progress
was made plain by Dr. E. Ryan, medical examiner of Kingston Medical
College, Ont, who addressed a large
assembly in St. Patrick's hall on
Sunday evening. The first branch
waa established in Buffalo in 1S78.
and during its 34 years of existence
it has grown to be one of the mest
cowerful organizations on the continent with branches a'.l over the Do-
Btfaian.
As evidence that the society  is a
real benefit to its members, no less
thaji   $6,000,000   has   been   paid   out
j in death claims since its  formation.
j Officered by laymen and clergy alike
l its work has been one continued sue
j cess and it has the unhampered sup-
t/ortpt the Catholic church to which
its members are affiliated.

driving along the Scott road in Surrey municipality, and, while rounding
a curve. Mr. Wilson noticed the pennants flying on Mr. Madill's car and

the collision. No damage was done
to the passengers.
