DUKE'S VISIT AF
UST DECIDED ON
Victoria, Auguat 21.���About three
hundred members were In attendance
at the first convocation of British
Columbia university, which was held
bere tbis morning in South Park
school. Hon. Dr. H. B. Young occupied the chair and called upon
Lleut.-Governor Paterson. who extended a welcome. Sir Richard McBride also spoke briefly, touching
upon what has been done for higher
education in the province and expressing confidence as to the outcome. *
Dr. Youjjg reviewed the history of
the movera^t for establishing the
university. The flrst legislation on
the subject was passed in 1907 when
it was decided to set aside two mil-
I'on acres of land as an endowment.
The selection of this land was proceeding as rapidly as possible but
would not be completed this year and
the time would therefore have to bs
extended.
\* Grants and  Land.
In addition to the 217 acres which
had already been set aside as a site
at Point Grey Dr. Young announced
his Intent'on of asking the legislature
at Its next session to set aside a further one hundred acres, making the
whole site 317 acres. He had asked .
the government to make It a total off
500 but had been unable, as yet, to
persuade his colleagues to go that
far. A grant of one million dollar
had aluo been promised. Ono half of
this amount was voted last year and
tho rest would be forthcoming when
required. The university site is withdrawn entirely from the municipality
of l'olnt Grey and Is entirely under the control of the governing body
of the university ao that no street
car l'nes can run through It, nor
anvthlnc else be done with it of
which the university authorities do
not approve.
First Graduates in 1914a
Dr. Young stated that daises would
be opened nevt year nud he fullv expected that there would be two or
three hundred students at the very
start. Many of these are already well
advanced in their studies bo that the
first graduates will secure thoir degrees in 1914. All positions in the
university will be open tb both sexes.
As to the new building Dr. Young
said that over three hundred architects have made inquiries regarding
the specifications, and most of these
will, presumably, submit competitive
plans. The work of construction will
commence as soon as possible, i He
waa not yet prepared to make any
announcement aa to who wlll be tbe
flrst president. Much consideration
has been given to the subject.
The result of the voting for chancellor and members of tbe senate
was tben announced by tbe (scrutineers, W. G. Vaunce and Rev. Thos.
Gre*n. There were 634 ballots cast.
of wbich sixteen did not vote for
chancellor or voted for some one who
had not been nominated. Of the remaining 618, one was rejected because tho voter was not registered
and flve were spoiled - by not being
signed. ,-

Allegations    Concerning    Action    of*
Workmen   in   Double-Tracking
G. N.  R. to Vancouver.
Edmonds, August 21.���At a specia:
meeting of the board of works held
this morning the resignation of Mr.
liig',1 L. Thompson, who for tbe past
Tew monUis has held the position ol
conscructlon engineer of Burnaby
municipality, waa handed ln, and
with little discussion, accepted.
It was understood that Mr. Thomp
son's action was due to the lack of
harmony between himself and the
municipal engineer, while the non-ac
ceptance of the report on the Douglas
road contract also affected the situa
tion. Just whether the council will
make another appointment to All thc
place remains to be seen but little ls
expected until the return of Reeve
Weart, who is on a vacation in the
Blast. He Is expected back in about
two weeks' time.
Detriment Alleged.
Another matter taken up was a letter from the municipal solicitors asking advice regarding the double-tracking of the Great Northern Railway
Company tbrough Burnaby from
New Westminster'to Vancouver. The
company operates the line under a
iha.ter given to the Vancouver, Victoria and Yukon Railway, It is claimed that the workmen doing the work
are blocking the drains and water
courses in that neighborhood to the
detriment of the land.
The solicitors were instructed tc
write to the board of railway commissioners at Ottawa calling attention to
this and to ask for protection towarn
the preservation of the present gradt
crossings, the replanking of same and
that all damage done to the road

for the handing Jo ru -���! it 'ler'Hton
on thc Point Grey tangle by the niiw
council before much could be expected. Now that the latter municipality
has acceded to tbe proposals of the
electric company, a new situation has
arisen.
The question wa^ brought up before the board of trade meeting this
evening by a question asked by Mr.
P. B. Brown, as to whether that body
Bhould take any action on the matter.
It was pointed out by Secretary
Coldicott that Point Grey voters had
granted a franchise to the B. C. E. R.
but the fact that agreement holder?
had voted made this, according tc
counsel, illegal. Burnaby's case if
different, he said. The council grant
ed a franchise to the B. C. E. R. but
failed to abide by the Municipal
Clauses Act, - which specifies that
when such an agreement ls made, lt
shall llrst be ratified by the voters.
According to Mr. Coldicott, tbe case
of Burnaby should be renewed with
vigor. "Just because Point Grey has
��c:ven In there is no reason why Burnabv should do so," be said.
No action was taken at the meet
ing.

LOOKS BLACK FOR
NEW YORK POLICE
LOST THE CASE.
John Doe Enquiry Into Graft Syetem
to Precede Trial of Arrests In
Rosenthal Case.
New York, Aug. 21.���A "John Doe"
police graft enquiry is to be undertaken several weeks before tbe trials
of the men charged with the murder
of Herman Rosenthal, lt was learned
today.
Preliminary proceedings before
Supreme Court Juatice Goff are expected to strengthen the casej
against Police Lieutenant Becker and
the six othera indicted yesterday for
the Rosenthal killing, by unearthing
new evidence of police corruption.
The John Doe enquiry will cease during the murder trials, but will be resumed after they are concluded.
Becker and the others will be called
to plead in court tomorrow.
The grand jury tomorrow will be
is'-ed to consider the testimony of
"Big Jack" Seelig, who,- told of his arrest bv two members of Lieut. Becker's "Strong Arm" squad. The two
detectives swore they found a revolver on Seellg's peraon. Five witnesses testified before the grand
jury that Seelig did not have a revolver when arrested. The grand Jury
may Indict the two detectives for alleged oppression and perjury.
"Bald Jack" Rose had previously
uld the grand jury that Seelig had
been "framed" that Becker might get
Seelig under his power. Becker.
Rose says, sent word to Seelig thai
he would either have to furnish thr
men to kill Rosenthal or 'go to prison
for a long term for carrying a revolver.
Seelig says he furnished the men
and that was all he had to.do with
the Rosenthal case.
The Seller Wss Unwilling to Accept
the Test.
A solicitor was defending a case
where r fruit-broker brought an action
for the recovery of twenty i omuls,
th) price paid for a consignment ol
figs which the plaintiff declared to be
u..flt for human food. The defence
alleged that although moderately discolored by salt water, as the plaintiff
knew when he bought them, the lisis
wero perfectly wholesome. The figs
wera  in court.
The plaintiff, a coster, who conducted his own case, was skillfully cro.-s
examined. The trial was obviously
going against him, and once rr twice
he retorted so hotly that the judflO
threatened to commit him fur run-
tempt. (
At length the coster grew desperate,
and turning to the opposing counsel.
I hoarse and perspiring, he said:
| "Look here, guv'nor; you say them
| figs are good to est, and 1 ssy they
I ain't. That's all there io between us,
j ain't it? Now, if you'll eat two of
j them figs and you ain't ill immediately afterwards, I'll lose my case."
The judge at once saw the prop-lety
of this suggestion,- and asked tbe
lawver what  he proposed  to do.
"Your honor is trying the esse, not
I." was tin? reply.
"No, QOI Tlu offer is made to you,"
said the judge.
A hurried consultation took place.
Counsel suggested that it was the
solicitor's duty to submit to the ex-
perjment. Tiio solicitor refu.-e I. The
broker himself was then asked if lia
would  risk  it.
"What will happen to mi if I
don't:-" said he.
"You'll lose the case," replied h"th
his  legal  advisers.
' Then." siii.i lie, hurriedly, "lose
the case,  lose the case!"
And  so lie cl.d.

Scandinavians Are Peculiar.
Many Scandinavians have s decidedly different anatomical construction
from less hyperborean people. In
these hardy northmen the layer of fat
under the skin, Panniculus sdipnsus.

something like in those cold sea animals, the whale, seal and walrus.
Also the blood vessels in this fat tti

The property of meerschaum to take

the nil of tobacco was discovered hy

named Koneatch, who lived at Budapest in the middle of tbe seventeenth
century, was mending a pire for
Count Andrassy when he dropped the
bowl on a piece of wax he was using

the wax, but later, whi i the owner
was snicking the pipe, a beautiful
dark spot appeared where it had been
touched by the wax.
The Roman Forum.
There were many forums in Rome,
but the oldest and most famous was
not created like a building at a certain lime. The Forum Romanum was
originall/ the lowlands between the
Palatine, Capitoline and Quirinul
hills, used as a meeting place for
barter and politics by the tribes living -,n the hills named and on other
hills near by. The development ol
this crude trading place and neutral
groun 1 into thc Roman forum of later
tim.s was very gradual and irregular.

the American marines and bluejackets from the gunboats Annapolis
and Panama played a prominent part
as defenders of the capital, the insurgents retreated, ostensibly to their
headquarters at Mazaya, the capital
of the department of the same name,
lying to the south of Managua,
lt was learned by the government
on Thursday, however, that the Insurgents had sent a large number of
armB and a quantity of ammunition
from Mazaya to Leon through thf
mountain passes, and that the rebels-
were hurriedly concentrating their
force* at the entrance of the town. Il
also became known that General Me

London, Aug. 21.���Dr. Sun Yat Sen,
the ex-president of China, will arrive
in Taku Chili tonight or tomorrow
morning. So cables the correspondent at Tientsin of the Dally Mail. It
is. considered probable that Dr. Sun's
life will be attempted at Tientsin before he leaves for Peking. He will
consult with ex-Prtmler Tang Shao
YI who absconded from Peking and
ts now a refugee in tbe British con
cessions at Tientsin.
The correspondent at Hankow ol

as emphasizing the sasitfactory char

mer to the president contributes materially to the stability of tbe new
government.
"Trade is booming and crops, wltb

"Although many dread Yuan Sh'
Knt's influence, he Is regarded as the

lieved that the outlook Is better than j
at any time since the outbreak of the
revolution."
Heavy firing ls reported at Wu
Chang, capital of the province of Hu-

the Peking correspondent of the
Daily Telegraph, who adds that no
details of the battle were obtainable.
"President Yuan Shi Kai's written

IMMIGRATION   LAWS.
man living in the' United States desires to come into Canada, and considers that there is any probability
of bts being challenged and turned
back hy our' Immigration inspectors
on the border, he ought, if a desirable person, to be able to forearm
himself with a certificate from some- (
one officially representing Canada in j
the district from which be comes. II
there were an arrangement of this
kind the exclusion of the undesirables would be much more complete
��� ban lt Is, for the persons who could
not satisfy our Consuls of their fitness would seldom take the risk ot
going without documents to push
their way past the immigration officials.
If there had been someone representing Canada in a Consular capacity ln the distrlcl from which Ferguson came, the latter might not today
be on trial for murder, and Inspector
Herbert might now be alive. Though
approaching the 60th year of his age,
Ferguson appears not to have shed
any man's blood until the day ot that
fatal trip on the Windsor Ferry. A
Scotchman, and a former resident of
Canada, it would be natural for him
to regard himself as entitled to come
back to this country, and to resent efforts to keep him out as if he were
an alien. We can understand a man
in his friendless and penniless condition regarding the activity of the officer to prevent his land'ng as per
secutlon. Had there been a local
Consul to whom he could have spoiled for admission Into Canada the
latter would have disposed of the
business, according as the evidencr
In support cf the man's representa
lions was or was not of sufficient
weight in his favor.
That 4n spite of existing means o"
excluding undesirables from the United States many get Into Canada nobody can deny. Toronto is one cf the
criminal resorts of the continent
and chiefly for the reason that it if>
so close to the international boundary line. When the search for tnt
"gun men" who killed Rosenthal be-
;an, enquiries and descriptions were
it once forwarded from New York to
Canadian cities. Canadian c;tles have
'oo many murders of their own nowa
lays, and very commonly the mur
derers are persons who previously
lived in the United States. It. should
be possible to make our immigration
restrictions, eaflec'ally tMjso on thf
border, of finer mesh.���Toronto Mall

cf the general tickets wllich were
sold last year, three distinct typeb
will be g ven out, each a different
co'cr. It ia said that last season thc
ticket was abused in some tew instai*
Des, but with the d.3t.rfct colors thii
will hardly be possible now.
The membership tickets will admit
the   holder   to- the ���grounds���and���the
main   buildings,   so   that it is really
a matter of  economy to hold one as
nearly  everyone  attends the fair often  enough  to  pay more    than    the
cost of a membership.   The men and

Ae children's  tickets will cost $1.00.
They  are   not   transferable, and  the

London, Aug. 21.���The fact that
the secretary tor foreign affairs. Sir
Edward Grey, has accepted the Invitation cf the Austrian minister for a
conference regarding the Balkan situation, demonstrates the importance
that ls being laid on the present
trouble.
The Balkans are seldom altogether
free from trouble In one form or another, and plots and intrigues there
are always carefully watched by European powers.
Austria's minister of foreign affairs will, therefore, exchange views
with Great Britain's representative.
and it is believed that plans will be

Not only is the present month likely to be remarkable for the number
of permits for large institutions
whicli have been taken out during. Us
���ioyrse, but the projection of new
residences in the city goes on unabated, and it now appears that
Vugust is about to constitute a record in this respect also.

Two  Repulsive   Pictures.
In the atelier of Adolph William
Bouguereau, the great French painter, there hung two terrible pictures.
One represented a man dying in the
desert, with the frightful form of the
angel of death descending upon him
The other depicted Dante and Vergil
in hell watching one victim madly
gnawing at the throat of another. Tha
iwo pictures failed because of their
horror. "If I had stuck to such subjects as those," the artist used to
tay. "I should have starved long
ago." He found a market for the
beautiful.

It was decided that tbls committee

came up when Mr. McPherson movec

A "Wild Hair."
A "wild hair" is the most annoying
freak of nature a man can be afflicted
with. It grows in from the eyelid instead of out and, constantly brushing
against the eyeball, sometimes came*

porary relief, since in a few weeks it
comes back, as well grown and strong
as ever. The only way to kill it is to
Jestroy the sac from which it springs.

the cup last Saturday in Vancouver,
preparation ia being made to run ex*

Feeling has run high throughout

opinion appears to be that the Sal

ination to regain possession of the-
cup this season could not have beer'
halted by the highest-priced stars in
the game today.

STOCKINGS BELIEFS.
Superstitions   Have   Clung  to  Them
From Time Immemorial.
Stockings figure in some curious superstition* touching old custniii?, especially those connected with marriage. Everyone knows thnt there ara
actions both lucky and unlucky.
Among the former it is commonly held
that to put on any article of clothing
wrong side out i.s decidedly a sign 61
good luck; but it must be done accidentally, and when the mistake is
found out no change must be made,
else the luck will immediately vanish.
This idea is very firmly held about
stockings, probably because it i.s more
easy to make such a mistake In putting on a stocking than in donning
other garments. It would lie hard indeed for a woman to put Ml her dress
or a man his coat or vest inside nut
without noticing what he wns doing.
Sometimes folks nre to he found who
have improved upon the o minhii notion, or who have even reversed it.
Another superstition touching the
use of hose is connected with dreaming. This is a Scotch notion. If a
person he about to sleep in a bed that
he or she has never slept in before;
the certainty of droaming can lie assured by placing the stocking taken
off tl.e right foot under the head. Not
only will the sleeper be sdre to dream,
but the dream will certainly come to
pass.
Of the superstitions attached to marriage ceremonies, most people have
heard of "throwing the stocking."
This rite \ypjild hardly be regarded
noiTas consistent with modern notions
of decorum, but it was highly popular
in former days. The ceremony waa
performed at the conclusion of tba
wedding day's festivities, by young
men and women .seated at the bed-
foot���the former   having -.the  bride'a

Th* Question of Introductions.
The question of Introducing seems to
be h perpetuul worry to some people.
Tbe   following   suggestions   may   be
helpful:
Tbe tlrst thing tbe introducer should
remember ls to pronounce tbe uumes
distinctly. A rather distressing occa
sion that gave a feeling of discomfort
snd dislike on one siae and an agonising remembrance on tbe otber vas
wbere a lady on being Introduced to
another made a remark concerning a
third party which, while not derogatory, might buve lieen soinewhut more
complimentary. To ber dismay the
second lndy remarked: "Yes. I bave
noticed Unit peculiarity In Margaret
Sbe ought io break herself of IL Sbe
Is my sister, you kuow."
Of course lady No. 1 did not know,
but tbere existed a coolness forever
thereafter. If the nu mes bud been dls
tluctly pronounced tbe Incident could
not bare occurred.
It Is un accepted fsct that eacb Individual Is nut to be Introduced to all
tbose present wbere an unfair Is at all
in a-e���ouly to a few Immediately at
bund wbo wlll, most likely, lu turn Introduce ber to others. It Is also nn accepted fact that lf a guest is departing
Just us another ls arriving tbey need
not be Introduced unless there Is reason for presuming tbey are to meet In
the future, so un Introduction Is superfluous.
A young woman Is always presented
to ao older, an unmarried to u mar
ried womnn. a mun to a wonnti un
less It he a distinctive case where sob)*
distinguished olbclal high In vtunding
is the guest of honor, when both Indies and gentlemen are presented tc
him.
A young mnn la presented to nn
older oue, nnd men always shake
bands, whereas this need uot he fol
lowed unless desired by two or more
women Introduced.
A   hostess  makes  her  greetlns   the
more cordial  b.v shaking  hands  wltn
her guests.    It seems more hospitable
but it Is not nt all obligatory.    Some
tactful    remnrk    ns    to    mutual    acquaintances or neighborhoods or possi
bly some taste for "Shnkespeare nml
tbe   musical   glasses"   helps  to   break
the Ice when sfriinj.'ers are Introduced
A   tactful   hostess  will   tuue  a   voiinc
man to a group of Rlrls. Introduce blm
to   eacb   separately   nnd   leare   nini
knowing they will "do the rest."

Engagement Fetes.
Pink Is the proper color for nn en
(tnpenient lunc|)con Since every one
delight* In strewing the path of a bride
elect .wilh roses these flowers make
tbe most suitable decoration for the
table Por the rest the arrangements
may he simple or elaborate. In accordance with the tastes of lhe bride and
with her means or those of her parents
She and her family take the Initiative In announcing the engagement,
Often their friends nre asked to call on
one or more afternoons��� the Thursdays
Of a month, for Instance, when the
bride and her mother wlll be at home
If Is usual to serve afternoon tea with
enke or sandwiches, or both. These
affairs, however, should lie simple Mini
informal Tbe groom's relatives and
friends are. of course, asked and
should make It a point to come If
the parents of tbe young man lire lo
the same city as tbose of the bride
they call upon tbe latter nt an early
date. They usually give a dinner also
or show hospitality in some form to
tbeir son's fiancee and her parents
The latter ask them in return.
The friends ot the engaged couple
(Are entertainments In their honor
luncheons, theater parties or dinner!*.
ns they flnd convenient.
If the bride elect Is n biis'nesi wo
man and has no free afternoon in the
week she should arrange to bent home
on Sunday afternoon fo receive her
friends If she bas religious scruples
on this point, then she should name
one or more evenings when they UlllJ
call
Her young friends may. If they
please, send her a tencup and snU'-er
or some small nnd Inexpensive gift.
Wedding presents hare become so c\
pensive and Hre sucb a tax on the
friends of the young couple that all
sensible people should oppose the In
novation of giving engagement pres
ents In addition.
Two 8et�� ef Manners.
A clrl who wears a soiled, wornmif
tumbled dress to tbe home tirenkfasi
tabie aud has the whole family help
lug her hurry into something decent
looking when she hears tbe man's step
Ob the from stoop Is going lo make
that u\-.:u pretty generally miserable.
Tbe cbiinces nre marriage Will relieve
her of any responsibility she may hnve
felt In keeping up sppenranees, nnd
tbe soiled kimono will often extend
through most of the dny. Runorer
heels, gnplng belt lines. Mrmles of protruding pins, are all so mi.ny danger
signals In the marriage market.
Good Form In Oress,
Voung girls and women wbo must
dress on very little money should
realize thnt she who Is roost admired
by men nnd women both by tbe one
wbo dresseu simply, but who selects
der clothes carefully so that all that
she wears corresponds In style ana ub

is better to lovj foolishly than not at
all; that they have practice 1 this
philosophy is proved r~ their memoirs  and  hiojrnphi.'s.
Leigh Hunt loved a good girl
whose spelling was unconventional,
and whose clTlToCraphy coul 1 not he
called her chief accomplishment.
Keats was wildly, madly in love with
a commonplace girl namsd Fanny-
Browne. He married her, but fhe was
i.ioapable of appreciating him.
Hazlitt, the brilliant essayist, loved
the pert, coarse daughter of his landlady. He wrote her a letter -vhich
sho never-answered, and he said that
"the rollihp'years of eternity would
not fill up th.' blank that her failure
to  answer that  letter  caused."
A practical Scottish girl. Charlotte
Carpenter, won Walter Scott's love.
She not only hated literature, but objected to writing to him. He wrote
her, saying. "You must writj me
once a, wrck." She replied, "You tre
quite out of your sense-, and you need
not pul iu so. many 'musts' in your
letters.    It is beginning too early."
Alfred de ?.'u<set's love for the irresponsive Ceorge Sand gave his
thoughts such an extraordinary elevation that he write many brilliant
poems in consequence. Chaucer sang
I'..-* praises o' many queens, but his
one great love was Phillippa Picard
de Rouet, th- Lady-in-Waitirg to
Queen Anne of Bohemia. He waited
nine years to marry her. but made it
a matter of complaint in several
poems.

Haddock Marks.
Why do haddocks carry those peculiar black "finger marks" n ar'the
head? Some tell us that they are a
memento of tiie pressure of St. Peter's
fingers when he went fishing fur the
tribute money. On thc Yorkshire
const of finale nd they say the devil
once determined to build a bridge at
Filey. His Satanic majesty did nol
start the,bridge for the convei ience
of the people,' but for the destruction
of shins and .sailors and t e a inoy-
ance of fishermen in genera'. In tbe
progress of liis work Old Nik drop
ped his hammer into thc sea. Stint cuing at it hastily, he caught a had
dock, and all haddocks cairy tbe im
print of his hlack fingers to tiiis day.

ian calendar was passed 161 ycais
ago, but it is still ignored in Shet
land. Almost all through the group
of islands the old style of reckoning
tim.' is still followed. What we call
���lan. 13 is New Year's day among the

with all manner ol observances', in-
ciuding the solemn drinking of the
national toast, "Health to man and

looked nbout for a place of concealment lie wns near a house that had
