Handed $100 Bill With Credentials For Change of
Left Station In Quick Time���Commissioners Suspend George Graff's
Bartenders' License.
Somewhat of a sensation was
sprung on the license commissioners
last evening when at a meeting held
in the city hall Chief of Police Bradshaw stated that an effort had been
made to bribe him lf he would assist
in the transfer of the license of the
Merchants hotel from Mr. D. S. Bray
to George Graft and Paul Root.
Graff, stated the chief, came to hii
office two weeks ago and presented
aome credentials from Vancouver
which had connection with his work
in that city, and at the same time
gave the chief an envelope which
contained a $100 bill, stating that thU
would be "for his trouble."
The bill was returned to Graff and
he was told to get out of the police
station mighty quick.
Commlasionere Act.
The commissioners listened to this
evidence wltb Interest, and granted
tbe change of license, but would n6t
entertain t\ratt being a partner In th"
deal, and the latter's bartender's
license was at the eame time cancelled. This was- agreed to by Mr.
Bray and also by Mr. Root.

That Insurance of City Schools Should
Be Tendered for���Claim
The local members of the Mainland
Board of Underwriters held a meeting
in the office of the National Finance
company laat night to protest against
the suggestion presented* by Mr. A.
W. McLeod at the meeting of the
school board last week that the trustees call for tenders for the inaurance
of the various schools throughout thc
ctty as the best method of securing
the lowest possible ratea.
The local tariff Insurance men
thought that If the scbool board
adopted the suggestion of Mr. McLeod they would not be doing th?
right thing by them, as previous to
this tne Westminster schools have received the lowest rate procurable un
der the underwriters' scale. It was
stated also that they were even at a
lower rate than the Vancouver
schools. The calling for tenders
would give the non-tariff people a dls
tlnct advantage over the tariff people.
It was contended, Inasmuch as the
latter could not possibly go below
their scheduled rates.
A deputation was appointed to meet
the school board at Its regular
weekly meeting tomorrow n'ght to
Dresent arguments, together with th-?
following resolution.
"Whereas the undersigned agents
of the fire insurance companies In
New Westminster who are members
of the Be��rd of Flre Underwriters
have been given to understand that
it Is suggested by your board to call
for tenders for the flre Insurance on
the school buildings of this city, and
vhereas the tariff companies have
through their board carefully and
equitably rated the said buildings consistent and safe indemnity, and ih
view of such rating cannot deviate
from the recommendations of their
Inspectors, and if our understanding
of your board's Intention is correct as
reported we hereby respectfully petition your board that before taking
nny definite action they accord our
representatives appointed in the meet-
'ng assembled this 18th day of 8<fv

Fresh from holding their annual
convention which took place In Vancouver d.ir'ng the early part of this
week, seventy-five members of the

plants of the Columbia Cold Storage
company and the Schaake Machine
The trip of the railway men is for
the double purpose of holding the annual convention and for gaining information concerning the country,
routes nnd other material calculated
to aid in their work of dispatching
passengers and freight. The party
traveling from the United States

about and then made thoir way northwest via Duluth and Winnipeg to Van
At 12 o'clock an adjournment was

The gentlemen were taken to th"
new Premier hotel where they sa*
down to a repast. Acting Mavor Grav
waa In the chair and ln hla addreas o'
welcome mentioned the faot that the
Royal City was going ahead, was taking no back seat among the cities of
the Canadian West and he hoped that
thia visit of the railway men would
be a source of Interest and of Information to them when they returned
to their uomns In the different parts
of the' continent. <
Mr. W. H. Mills, speaking for the
association, said: "New and unusual
conditions of things seem to greet ue
at every step we take tn this Canadian Weat. Thia. I may aay, la our

New Trunk Lines and Cablee    Being
i Installed���September Directory

"Every effort is being bent to the
end that all may be in readiness tor
the cut-over of the board ofi Novem
ber 1," ia the definite announcement
contained ln the September ia^ue ol
"Telephone Talks," the official publl
cation of the B. C. Telephone com
pany in connection with the Installs
tlon of the new system In the loca.
central office.
The work on the new switchboard
and accessory equipment Is reported
to be making excellent progrets now
though previous to this it haa beei.
ln such a complex Btate that It waj
difficult for those who had it It
charge to aet a date for ita completion.
The new board Is of the commo;:
battery type, and following th% cut
over New Westminster, It Is declared
will have a telephone system second
to none; ln fact, it will be the equal
of anything to be found In the larges
cities of the continent.
To meet tbe demands for increased
service  the   telephone  company    la
making great extensions to its equip
ment all throughout the lower mainland.    Six  new trunk lines  betweei
this city and New Westminster, wen-
completed at the end of last month
and further improvements are mooted
The two new circuits   under   con
struction between New Westmlnstei
and Mission have been carried to   u
point beyond  Hammond.   In connec
tion   with  the   placing  of  theae  eir
cults In service it will be necessary
to throw another cable   acrosa   Pitt
river,  making  a total  of three  alto
gether.    The present   cables   acrosn
the Pitt are located at a point    between the C. P. R.. bridge and    thf
ferry crossing.
The installation of the new cjrcult;
will make for increased facilitlee al'
along the line between Weatmlnste/
and Mission, and communication be
tween Vancouver and points on th��
northern bank of the Fraser river will
be greatly Improved.
The manufacturing of the cable
-.vhich Is to be laid across the super
structure of the Fraser river bridge
ls now proceeding and It ls expected
to have It on the ground ready for Installation lns'.de two months time.
The placing of the cable on the
bridge will be done to avoid trouble
and interruptions to service caused
bv snags during the annual periods of
high water. The present cable at thif
point is entirely submarine and hat
given trouble more or less every year
from this cause.

Edmonds, Sept. 18.���Strong opposition to the proposed harbor commis
alon for the North Arm of the Fraser
and also to the Fraser valley publicity
bureau was voiced by Mr. A. V. M.<.
Pherson this evening at the monthly
meeting of the Burnaby board of
trade. Mr. McPherson did not mince
matters when speaking against the
two movements which he character-
zide as being carried on without the
consent of either the ratepayers as a
whole or the Ratepayers' associations
of the municipality.
"Burnaby can gain no advantage
from thla publicity scheme by as^o
elating herself with the rural municipalities on tbe other side of the
Fraser," he aald. He favored Independent action, or co-operation with,
the Vancouver Progress club.
Improvement of Burrard Inlet was
preferable to that of the North Arm,
thought Mr. McPherson. "Those in
favor of the scheme are spending jub
lie money without Burnaby as a whole
being represented," be said. He
thought tbat particulars of both
schemes should be sent to the ratepayers associations in Burnaby, and
moved a resolution, seconded by Mr.
McCurragh, to that effect.
President B. G. Walker explained
tbe schemes, stating that the Van
couver Progress club had gone out ol
its way to discourage settlement in
the Fraser valley and that the Richmond boundary question was being
Mr. T. D. Coldicutt, secretary of the
board, spoke strongly ln favor of the
publicity scheme, and moved an
amendment as follows: "Tbat we do
not Intend to notify the Ratepayers'
associations of Burnaby in matters re
garding the board of trade nor to ask
their approval, and that they get thetr
news through the press." This carried, several of the twelve members
who were present not voting.

Millais Painted Soma Graat  Flcture*
Before Hs Was of Ago.
Ons of the b??t known pictures in
existence is' Sir David Wilkie'*
"Blind Fiddler." It is a masterpiece
in its own school of painting, and at
one time perhaps no other picture
could compete with it fo popularity
as an engraving for the sitting-room
wall. Yet this masterly picture, sn
full of detail and character and subtle touches of humor, was painted
when  Wilkie was only twenty-two.
So poor w��,s he at the time that he
had to dress him��elf up to act as his
own model for this great Cffmpositipn

Early  Risers.
Sir Edward Coke, the great English
lawyer, attributed much of his success to early rising. When a young
man in chambers he rose regularly at
three o'clock and studied until the
courts met at eight. Nine o'clock was
his retiring hour, as he believed a
man should have an equal portion of
ideep before aud after midnight.
This Brazilian   Hairy   Monster  Could
Even  Dodge  Revolver Shots.
If we live in a locality where mos-
tuitoea are found at all during the
summer we are pretty likely to consider them a torment. But comparing
nur own condition with that of Algot
Lange during his travels in Brazil we
may on the whole consider ourselves
"In the first place," he says in "In
;he Amazon Jungle," "there are the
snts. They are everywhere. They
build their nests under the houses,
in the tables and in the cracks of
the floors and lie in ambush waiting
the arrival of a victim, whom they attack from all sides. They fasten themselves on one. and sometimes it takea
hours of labor to extract them.
"Many are the breakfasts I have
delayed on waking and finding myself
the object of their attentions. II
proved necessary to tie wads of cotton covered with vaseline to the fastenings of the hammocks to keep tiie
intruders off. But they even got
around this plan. As soon as tbe bodies of the first arrivals covered the
vaseline the rest of the troops marched across them in safety and gained
access to the hammock, causing a
quick evacuation on my part. Articles
o! food were quickly destroyed by
these carnivorous creatures within a
few minutes after I had placed them
on the table.
"When convalescing from m/ flrst
attack of swamp fever I had occasion
to study a most remarkable species
of spider which was a fellow lodger
in the hut 1 then occupied. In size
thc specimen wns ve.-y respectable,
being able to cover a circle of nearly
six inches in diameter. This spider
subsists on large insects and at times
on smallest varieties of lirds, like
finches, etc. The natives c.-ead it for
its poisonous bite and on account of
tla great size and hairy body.
"The flrst time I saw one in my
hut was when it was climbing the
wall in close proximity tn my hammock. I got up and tried to crush
it with my fist, but the spider made
a lightning quick move and stopped
about five or six incites from where
I hit the wall. Several times I repeated the attack without success,
the spider alws/s succeeding in moving before it could be touched. Somewhat out of temper, I procured a
hammer of large size and continued
the chase until I was exhausted.
"When my hand grew steady again
I took my automatic pistol, used for
big game, and, taking a steady aim
on the fat body of the spider, I fired.
But with another of the remarkably
qui'-k movements the spider landed
the usual safe distance from destruction. Then I gave it up. For all I
know that animal���I can scarcely call
it an insect after using a big game

Revolvers Belling In Large Quantities
In Belfast���Present Situation
i    Most Disquieting.
London, Sept. 18.���A "remarkable
Btory comes (rom Belfast that before
embarking on the present campaign
against Home Rule the leaders had
received the assurance that, ln thc
event of Home Rule being pressed,
to Its final stage, a certain number
of army officers representing every
branch of the aervlce would throw ln
their lot with the Ulster men.
Tbe list ls said to Include many officers of high rank, with 26 colonels
and Ueutemu^-colonels, 43 majors,
69 captains, 81 lieutenants and / 283
men holding the rank of serflfeaiit-
major or sergeant.
One of the most disquieting features of the present situation la the
lncreaae of the number of persons
who own firearms. In the National
dUtrlct of Weat Belfast, one dealer is
disposing of,revolvers at the rate of
100 a week and expects that this rate
of sale will continue for some time,
a large number of the weapons being
disposed of on tbe club system. There
ls reason to believe that what Is happening in Belfast ls also taking place
In Dublin and other districts. The
authorities are perfectly well a war'

and some time ago the government
actually discussed what atep could he
taken to deal with the importation
of these arms. It was then decided
to.take no action at the moment and

London, Sept 17.���Twenty leading
British motor manufacturers discuss
ed the campaign to oppose the "American invasion" at a luncheon given
today by Mr. Ralph D. Blumefield.
editor of the London Daily Express,
which Is promoting a movement
against American automobiles.
The formation of a big corporation
or the combination of existing companies and the eetabllahment of a protective tariff were the plane proposed.
A letter sent bv the Duke of Westminster read at the luncheon disclosed the fact that the Imperial Prefer

American cars were flimsy affairs.
One manufacturer said that cheap

C.  N.  R.    Announces Within    Month
,   Construction Starter-Vancouver
Terminals to Equal C.P.R.
Vancouver, Sept. 18.���It Is the Intention of the Canadian Northern
Railway Company, within one month,
to commence on the work of building
their machine and repair shops, and
their railway yards at Port Mann,
where they have freight sheds, but
all the same Vanoouver, as the absolute terminus of the company, both
as regards railway and shipping, will
be the unquestioned terminal for all
time of the C. N. R.,lf the agreemen)
now In process of arrangement between the company and the city ie
carried through.
This Information was part of the
assurances given to the bridges and
railway committee at their adjourned
meeting yesterday by Colonel David
son, when the company, through Colonel Davidson,- agreed to further concessions asked by the c'ty in reference to the proposed entry of the C.
N. R. into False Creek.
Mayor Findlay aald he again wish
ed to get the amplest assurance from
Colonel Davidson that there would
be no question but that Vancouver
would be the terminal for all time-
"nt nnlv as regarded the rallwavs Of
the C. N. It., but also as regarded the
company's steamships. In reply Col
''nel Davidson stated that it was the
Intention of the company to make
Vancouver Its terminus In every way
** much as the C. P. R. had done so.
The phalrman assumed that this
meant that the C. N. R. terminals
fl'ould be as complete as those of the
C. P. R. Colonel Davidson said that
his statement was as comprehensive
is he could make It. They would
have freight sheds here and a freight
distributing place at Port Mann, and
tlso a shop. Alderman White held
'hat the company's freight shed, shop
and payroll would be at Port Mann.
In reply to this Colonel Btated this
assumption was not ln accordance
with his statement.
Aid. McNeil and others of the committee failed to see any objection to
Port Mann having something, but Alderman White contended that the Alberta wheat to be brought ln by the
C. N. R. would not come ln to the
head of False Creek.
Alderman White referred to the
fact that the O. T. P. had been per
mitted to come into the union stations
it Winnipeg, which information had
boen given to the last meeting oy
Colonel Davidson, He did not consider that tho comparison was a fair
one. Whenever railway companies
came to a seaport, he said, the companies owned their own terminals, because it was an asset for a company
to owe  them.
Tl-e C N. R. WOre Ro'.ng to upend
a whole lot of money In purchasing
a terminal, rather than gpend money
n a union station. This city was to
be the end of the route of the company from the Atlantic to the Paci-
f:c. Did the committee suppose that
the C. P. R. would agree to run in
here to a union station? Certainly
not. The committee were overlook-
ng the main point. They were asking for minor concessions and over
looking the question of reserving another strip at False Creek for the use
of another company.
Colonel Davidson said they most
assuredly would do so. He further
stated that he had endeavored to answer the tirst question ns fully as
possible. The company Intended to
make Vancouver Its terminals Just as
nmch as the C. P. R- had done. He
could not answer the question nv
���"ere satisfactorily or any more fully,
Alderman Woodslde considered tha
tatement mnde bv Colonel Davidson
seemed to settle the matter very materially. _.'    ���
W'th resnect to Port Mann Colonel
Davidson wanted to make it perfectly clear that tbe C. N. R. expected to
havo varda, shops and freight yarda
at Port Mantir Thatiwas all they had
ever promlR��d. "I have made the
statement that we Intend to make
vnncouver the C.- N. R. terminals,
bo'h for railway and for steamships.
I stand to that," aaid Colonel Davidson. ���
"One more word about Port Mann
said Colonel Davidson. "We Intend to
commence building machine and re-
nn'r shops and railway  yards there
within one month."
Britain Places Her Worldwide Service
at the Disposal of Commercial
Ottawa, Sept. 18.���Arrangements
have been completed of imperial im
portance between Sir Edward Grey,
secretary of state for foreign affairs,
and Hon. George K. Foster, miniate!
of trade and commerce, by which the
whole of the British consular service
extending to every point in the world
will be placed at the disposal of Can
adian commercial interests.
Means are provided also for build
ing- up a distinct Canadian consulai
service under the auspices of the British service. The plan should prove
of the greatest value to Canadian ex
porters, as arrangements are mado
for securing Information rapidly,
while authentic Information as to
Canadian resources and development
wllf be available In'all parts of the
It is regarded as a great step In
advance towards closer political and
commercial relations with the motherland.
Mr. Foster has been working at this
plan all summer. After careful investigation Mr. Foster early ln May
passed through the Cabinet an order-
'.n-councll whicli forms the base of thc
agreement. This order-in-council, after giving digest of the Hritish consular system and noticing Its completeness and excellence,, observes that
such of the Information collected by
British consuls would be of use to
Canadian business Interests, and that
the fact that the British consulates
'scattered over the world would be
kept supplied with the latest information regarding Canada so as to be
able to answer inquiries and suggestions of Interchange.
After a review of numerous advantages which "would accrue from the
services If the consular system were
made available to Canada, the order-
in-council authorized Mr. Foster to
confer personally with the home authorities with a view to securing cooperation.
These arrangements resolve themselves into this, Canada will use the
British consular system to obtain information about foreign countries,
and that foreigners can repair to Bri
tish consular offices and can obtain
Information as to conditions and opportunities here. There is also opened the avenue to the building cf a
Canadian consular service.
They will be supplied with interpreters and will be introduced to th��?
principal officers and merchants, foreign and native, of the country they
mav be visiting. The valuable infor-
mat'on In the offices of the attaches

all forma of commercial activity will

That 8onMjthing more than redistribution Is ii(B|ci��fl badly is evident from
a dispatch 1tr<$ijt Ottawa stating that
at'present* ftaft/' Urban constituencies
of 100,000 have only as much representation In the. Mouse as rural districts with .10,001) population.
The movement of people from tha
land to the crowded cities is one 0*
the most vital questions that has
been agitating the minds of the
statesmen of many countries for some
time past. it is not a new
phenomenon, In fact the "Back to thc
land" cry Ib too well known anions
our neighbors, to, the south to need
���explanation here.
But that-Canada ehould be suffering
already from the same disease���roi-
disease UBBmawiS ��� an alarming announcement. Here on the coast we
have had evidence of late that our
rural population, while not actually
diminishing���though cases i.i certain
districts h$ve been reported���is certainly not increasing In anything lika
the ratio at wtych the population of
the cities is growing. Hence the movement for a better settlement of our
own Kraser vjaHey.
As with the land so with man/
other branches of public endeavor.
There seems to be a great deal left
to individual effort which is frequently combative, while a world of room
exists for Constructive steps to be
taken by the representatives of ths
people as a whole.
There i%,jppapn, to believe that the
United Slates will soon invade Mexico.    The  Associated  Press despatch
from  Beverley, Mass.,    the    summer I
capital, announcing that an ultimatum
had beaAAatnl ipp the Madero govern-'
ment, ff&f i!W fldfcfr"flenied, and would
hardly  have been  published  without
the knowledge and consent    of   the
president.    From  Washington  cornea
the report that Congress will be convened in extra session on Oct. 7, and
that many army Officers on Btaff duty
at the capital have been ordered to
rejoin their regiments.
Mr. Taft has no doubt been urged
to intervene In Muxico by American
citizens resident In that country, by
the communities on both sides of the
international lih�� which have suffered from'the guerilla warfare and by a
number of 'American and European
firms with investments in Mexico. It
���was gerierallj^'timlerstood some time
ago that' lhe""BTltlsh government and
other foreign governments interested
would rnt*��*fi8 objection to American intervention. Why then has Mr.
Taft delayed ai\<}; hesitated?
One reason for his inactivity un
-doubtedly 3>i.l';he<jn the fear that the
Invasion of MSMico would be mis-con
strued bf 'tHfe Spanish-Amerlca.i
countries of South America. So far
as the United)States can be said tc
have any definite, diplomatic pollcy.
that policy has been In the direction
of a unified continent, under the in
fluence andicMtection of the United
States. This policy Is difficult tf
work out, principally because of the
Insuperable barrier of diverse languages. Thjero is little commun ci-
tion betweeh the United States and
South America, and the Spanish
American republics, resentful of the
Mexican and Spanish wars and the
Panama grab, havo been distrustful
cf the friendly advances trade te their
by the United states and of the Pan-
Americanism of Blaine, itoot. Knox
and other secretaries of state. An
nttael; upon Mexico would not soon
Jbe forgotten.
The war would no doubt be a long
and costly one, but it would not ho
.unpopular with the people of the Uni-
.ted States. Contiguous territory lends
Itself easily to annexation and Mexico

A clause Is being Inserted In the bylaw now under preparation to make
the work of tbe municipal Health
Department more effective, which will
cut down to a minimum the dangers
of the transmission of tuberculosis
through infected inflk. And it is ln the
milk, rather than in the meat tlfltfr
the greater danger lies. It specifically provides that, before any farmer
shall receive permission to ship milk
to the city of Montreal, he must
present a certificate from a recognized surgeon, stating that all the
cows In his herd have passed
tho tuberculin test. The adoption of a precautionary measure ol
this kind Is absolutely essential and
It must bo compulsory and not left
to the discretion, or good will of tho
Individual. If we cannot have tuberculous cattle destroyed, we can a'
least see to It that they are not allowed ��0 poison the babies of the city.

Tuberculous meat is bad enough;
tuberculous milk Is deadly. Conditions at present are such that the
consumer who buys his meat at any
of the public markets Is never sure
that lt W not reeking with tuberculous infection, Only meat slaughtered
at the pub)lj .slaughter houses and
those of the great packing companies
is adequately inspected. There is
nothing in the law to prevent a farmer from killing a cow which Is dying
of tuberculous and selling Its flesh
In Montreal, add there are very few

r.evelE'.oke Expects to Meet Sapperton, Not Senior Amateurs.
No little comment has been made-
in Sapperton during the past few day.i
regarding the coming game with tlie
Revelstoke team, which will take
place during fair week. It all arose
from a report in a Vancouver paper
which stated that the boys from thf
Interior would meet the Senior Amateur lacrosse team.
According to Mr. Johnston, the
home player who waa captain of the
Sapperton team when the Darnstorm-
ing trip through the upper country
was undertaken a few weeks ago. the
Revelstoke team will refuse to make
the trip unless they are assured that
the? will meet the Sapperton juniors
only, ub their team Ib but an Intermediate one.
It is thought that thiB was merely
an error on the part of the paper in
which lt appeared and that the exhibition officials will see that the
llevt lstoke boys will make the trip
and^clasb with the champion Sapperton aggregation.

Galilei   and   the  Swinging  Lamp.
The boy Galilei, sitting with hundreds of others in the Cathedral of
Pisa on a Sunday morning, saw an attendant draw -side the heavy hanging lamp to light it and then let it
swing. Many other eyes saw the same
thing, but thera was only that pair in
Galilei's head which really observed
what happened, and only his brain
beean to reason utfon it. He alone
noticed that as the swings ��� I the

Blue and Gresn Sta Water.
The biueness of sea water is in constant ratio to its salt ness. In the
tropics the tremendous evaporation induced by the blazing sun causes the
water to be much saltier than it is in
higher latitudes. For about tl-irty decrees north and south of the equator
the waters are of an exquisite azure,

ehanges to green..and in the Arctic

Ihs Chreilnl Idlit Has Many Crimes

A sen?e oi fhe htimornti* fide of
thing* ia frequently a valnnh'e asset;
and the msn who tet* nut to mnke
humor nowadays ought to be looked
upon at a philanthropist.
But some folk have queer nations.
The practical joker, for instance, the
roan who In a boarding-house devotes
his energies to organizing some freak
or other, from an apple-pie bed to a
collapsible chair, "for fun"; a humorist who ia a perpetual nuisance to
everyone but himself. ���
lt was surely a weird idea of a j~>ke
���which a short time ago led the friend
of a well-known Hritish M.I*. t> chase
after him. crying "Stop thief!" and
"He's got my gold watch!"
The M.P. was promptly, stopped by
a policeman, and when the friend
came up. he explained: "It's only a
joke!" said he. Hut the constable
failed to see the point, and st the
police court next morning the humorist was bound over to be of good behavior for six months.

Sto y of an Old Smoke Dimmed Painting of St. Jerome.
In "The Bargain Hook." hy C. E. W.
Jerninghain and Lewis Hettany. many
instances are given where priceless
heirlooms, especially paintings, have
been found, neglected, stowed away ia
some dusty cupboard or adorning the
walls of some miserable hut. Usually
the owner wa9 the victim of his own
ignorance and was happy to sell the
treasure for a few cents to some unscrupulous dealer. But here is a story
with a happier termination.
A poor retailer of fruit could hardly
earn enough even in good times to buy
herself and her three small children
bread. Her earnings were quite toe
small to pay the rent of the damp
hole that tier landlord called a room.
The landlord at last distrained for
his rent. He took her bed and her
wretched furniture and 'ttlered them
sold at auction. The wuftiw and her
children were present at the sale.
Even the best things went for a trifle.
It seemed as if not enough wonld be
realized even to pay the rent.

Faomg the sea on the island are sn-
ormous platforms made of u ncement-
ed stones, some of which weigh five
tons. Some of the sea walls are tbir-
ty feet high and 200 feet long. ,
! On the land side are broad ter.
races, also of stone, bearing pedestals
on wllich lormerly stood huge figures
carved from lava. Most of these
images have been thrown down, but
there are 565 of them on the inland
One is 68 feet high, with a nose 11
I feet long. The figures all exWnd
.rom head to hips, with receding fore-
j heads,   broad   hoses,   thin   lips, "and
I powerful chins.
\    There  is no  metal on  the island.
I anl tlw only tool found was a pre-
! historic chisel, with which  it would
I seem impossible to execute sueh col-
ossal works. Moreover. Jhe island,
with  its scanty   water supply, could

drag  the   figures    lrom

250 tons.
There    U   every    evid'tice    that    a'
grent   calamity   overtook   the   island

figures  are   unfinished,   some   never j

largest lumber mill in the world.
A description of the mill Is unnecessary, but the sight of the kings of the
forest being torn up into planks opened the eyes of the visitors. Mr.
Rogers took occasion to mention that
the, railways are all right at times,
but he would have a better word to
say if they would only supply the
mill with an adequate quantity o:
cars for loading lumber.
At the present time the mill ls
working double shift, twenty hourc
day of the week, and while an aver
age of twenty cars is sent ln to the
switch, forty are needed.

Vancouver railway man, Mr. H. S
Smith, of the Grand Trunk system

present at Ottawa, calling attention
to the fact that the Sandheads liglit
