Secretary Stuart Wade, of the
Board of Trade has received a com-
muication from Capt. J. W. Troup
of Victoria, in connection with placing of lights for the guidance of mariners on certain points on the Frasei
river. Mr. Troup states that he has
written the deputy minister of marine at Ottawa recommending that the
lights be placed at the points asked
for by the Westminster Board of
The   places    mentioned    are    the
point of Annacis Island; Ewen's Can
nery;  Holly Point;  Westham Island,!
and  two lights at the mouth of the
river to be changed in character.
"I think," says Capt. Troup's letter, "this would be a very good star'
on the lighting of the Fraser river,
and should be satisfactory for some
years to come. Colonel Anderson
has been over the ground and recommends practically the same aids and
recommends St. Mungo Instead of
Annacis Island. I agree with you
that Annacis Island is the best place
for  the  light."
With respect to the lif-htship at
the mouth of the Fraser, Mr. Troup
stated In his letter that he favored
its location on the extreme entrance
the sands, as the heavy shipping
through Active Pass bas been handicapped by its other position.

Date of first publication August 7,
London, Aug. 19.���Much interest
has been aroused by the statement
which Captain Lord, formerly master of the Californlan, has Issued in
defence of hia behavior when his ship
was close to the Titanic on that fatal
night in April. Some of the detaila
give a slightly different aspect to the
whole affair and he has explained his
action in not presenting them before,
saying that his position at the Titanic inquiry was that of a witness only,
and that a nautical man rarely
makes a good witness. Prefacing his
statement by saying that he is seeking to bring out these facte as a duty
which he owes to himself and his reputation as a British master, he goes
on to state that the deductions which
have been drawn, reflecting on his
personal character as a seaman are
entirely unfounded. After mentioning the fact that he had been on the
bridge until 10:30 and that his wireless operator had been In touch with
a number of ships and warning them
of the field of Ice, Captain Lord
"Forty minutes after midnight 1
left the deck in charge ofthe second
officer with instructions to call nn
if wanted, and retired to the chan
room, where I lay down, fully dressed
with boots on and the light   burning
"At 1:15 a. m. the second officer
informed rue. through the speaking
tube that the steamer which had
stopped in sight of us since 11:30
p.m. bearing S. S. E. was altering hei
bearings���In other words, was steam
tin- away and had fired a white
"Meanwhile, for over an hour, mj
Morse signals to this vessel had beer,
ignored. The officer reported her tr
be steaming away and I asked him If
be thought it was tlie company's
signal to Morse her again and re
"lhe evidence of my officer on the
point was so conclusive that 1 went
to sleep. The later message to the
effect that she was last seen bearing
southwest by west, proved that she
had steamed at least eight miles between 1 and 2 p. m. The Titanic did
not move after midnight. I have no
recollection of receiving further news
md I did not hear of the disaster un-
t;l daylight. The evidence is conclusive that none of the officers of
the Californian was aware of the serious calamity which had taken place.
That any seaman would willfully neglect signals of distress ts preposterous  and unthinkable.
"The absence of any reply to the
succession of Morse signals made
from the bridge of the California!! Is
further evidence which is entitled to
some consideration."
When Captain Lord asked the second officer next day why he had not
used more energy in calling him. he
replied that if the signals had been
distress signals he would have done
so, but aB the steamer was steaming
away he concluded that there was
not much wrong with her. He was
the man upon the spot, the only officer who saw the signals, so the
captain thinks he was justified In relying on his Judgment.
"Captain Rostron of the Carpathia,
Captain Lord continued, "statea that
at 5 a. m. In broad daylight he could
see all around the horizon. He then
saw two steamers north of where he
was. namely In the direction of the
Californian. He further saw a steamer, about 8 a. m., about flve or alx
milea away and steaming toward the
Carpathia. Had the Callfomran been
aeen by the Titanic before sinking,
she would have ben plainly In view
of the Carpathia at this time, as ahe
was then on the same spot where she
stopped the previous evening.

"B.P's" Observations
On American Conditions
General Baden-Powell who has recently passed through the United
States on his way to Asia and Australia, makes some pertinent remarks
in the Headquarters Gazette upon
the features of American life which
eame directly under his notice, lle
testifies to the cordiality of the reception which he met with from all
classes, so that during hls tour he
v never realized that he was in a
of education in principle and deta'l
seemed to him to be excellent, broad-
minded, up to date and allowing individuality on the part of the teacher.
He found school esplrlt de corps, fos
tered, to an extent unknown in Brit-
ian outside the great public schools.
Universities he describes as splendid
institutions richly endowed by the
great public men, attended by thousands of young men and women. He
believes that their influence must tell
strongly on the nation ln the near iuture.
The Reverse Side.
But there is a reverse side to this
bright picture. Though this education appeared so gocd, both in principle and detail, the results, to an
outsider, seemed disappointing,
though they were Improving all the
time. One heard of coronation
among public officials In all d'rec-
tions; one paper had remarked when
its last municipal councillor went Into Jail for accepting bribes: "At least
it Is satisfactory to know where
every one of your public men Is and
what he is doing." Owing to want of
system in the rendering of public accounts the rates and taxes were' abnormally high and were ever mounting up. Crimes of violence and lawlessness were very frequent. The
number of murders in New York per
annum was four times that of London, although thc population is smaller, and the proportion cf murderers
apprehended and convicted wat very
small inded. Suic'des were of constant occurrence. Railwav acciden'?
���which to a considerable exten*
might be reckoned as results of bai
character-education ��� were much
mere frequent than in the Old Coflh
try. During his six weeks in {Tie
States he saw more fires and fire engines lhan he had seen in six yean
at home. \l {,'\

here nor in tbe United States is
there any sign of amendment. On the
contrary, it is evident that good citi
zens are waking up everywhere t.
the fact that "Righteousness"���and
righteousness onl.v���"e.\alteth a na
t'on." The growth with which tht
name ef Baden-Powell is specially
identified ls a proof of this if any
were needed. The training of the

to the district attorney, Schepps
srlnned and replied: "We didn't dis
3uss anything like that. We just had
t nice chat." It is known, however,
hat Schepps suhstantally corroborated "Jack" Rose's story. Rose has
said repeatedly that if Schepps would
lell the truth his (Rose's) story
would be corroborated.
Information came from the public
prosecutor's office today that created
unusual interest at police headquarters. It was learned that for several
months prior to the shooting of Ros
^nthal, officers of the district attorney's office have been quietly working on the graft in the police depart
���nent. The big grafters it ls said
have been constantly shadowed fot
four months and the Rosenthal shooting  simply  huried  matters.
From members of the district attorney's staff it was learned that a
well-known civilian and two, possibly
four, police inspectors have been
caught in. the toils. The district attorney has obtained information that
a "collector" for one man high in police circles had accumulated no less
than $75,000 as his commission on
collections In the last several
months. The investigation into police graft started when Lieut. Becker
through Rose, it is said, attempted tc
���tei $150 from a private poker club

Sir Robert hopes that his criticism

hope We would not here dwell upon his criticism ot our neighbors
were It not that we ln Canada are .
given to adootlng what Is warsej

from these notes with regard to ways
that lead to anarchy. In New York

course, It will be said that this Is the
logical result of Institutions which
had their roots in rebellion and ln

London, Aug. 19���The execution
of Chang Chen Wu by Chinese government officials is compared by thr
Peking correspondent of the Dail:-'
Telegraph to Napoleori*s shooting of
the Due d'Enghlen at Vinncennes In
1804 and what followed. It Is the
turning point, the writer aiserts, ln
tho life of the Chinese republic. The
correspondent continues:
"President Yuan Shi Kal, alarmed
at the outcry. Is publishing Vice President kl Yuan llung's telegrams In
order to fasten the blame on thst of
flclnl. and fear'": assassination surrounds himself with trdops.
"According to a Chinese newspaper, the eccutlon waB carried out In
a fiendish manner. General Yuan
Chi Kuel, who was entrusted with
the execution, actually dined with
his victim tn an European hotel and
toasted him repeatedly. When the
dinner was over he followed his victim ln another carriage to hts lodging.
"On alighting from the vehicle.
General Yuan Chi Kuel blew a whistle as a signal, whereupon a forest of
sabres and bayonets sprung up Uke
magic, about Chang Chen Wu, who
was selted. bound, filing Into a mute
cart an<Tcarried to the military court.
No evidence waB given at the trial
and the acsused officer waa condemned to immediate execution.
"The first volley not killing the
prison, repeated volioys were fired
until the general's body was completely disetnbowled. A mesaaje was
sent to vlotlm's wife for 'more
clothes, as bor husband felt cold In

illadviced: jj"Boycotting."
There are two aides to every question, and at least one of the Vancouver organs of public opinion has expressed tBe vie^ that the proposed
'���boycotting," of the Panama expos-
_at San Frunclsco^-as was mooted in
iufluencial quarters in Vancouver���
would  be  more  than 'inadvisable.
President TaCt is supposed to he In
favor cf the bill iu Its present form,
but at the same time is reported to
.be anxious to obtain the opinion oi
.the Supreme* Uourt upon tha matter,
so as to avoid any breach of t'.io Hay
Pauncefole treaty. This at lea.,; uiaj
be set lo his credit. It is also to bt
noted that many other leading journals of the republic have refused to
support congress in Ub repudiation
of the nation's obligation in the mat-
.ter of Panama Canal tolls. The Naw
York Times says plainly that the nation is di.igraced. the Chicago Tribune thinks ''the spirit of the debatt
and vcte in the senate was deplor
able and should be counteracted by
intelligent opinion.' Other instances
might be quote*),-till tending to show
that there is in the United States a
great deal of. opposition to the measure.
Seeing that Great Britain has accepted the invitation to participate in
the Panama Pacific exposition, there
seems very little reason why the
cities cf British Columbia should
take hasty steps in the directloA of
-"boycotting."   \
A flying squadron of San Francisco gentlemen are'about to pay a visit
to the coast province, and we trust
that they will be able to stop off at
Westminster. We do not think that
any public body in this city has any
grudge against'the Panama exposition, rather, we feel that all are Inclined to give Vt a help along towards
achieving the best success possible,
England has led the way in connection with the provision of better
housing accommodations for the people. In the garden city, an independent community Intended to include
all branches of commercial and Industrial activity, and tn the garden
suburb, which, as its name implies, is
designed to supply an attractive residential district conveniently situated
to the business centre, England has
established what are today object
lessons tp all countries confronted
with the housing problem. They
have been visited, inspected and de
scribed by many foreign observers
whose verdict has been altogether
favorable, and these garden communities are now rapidly extending
throughout the continent of Europe
and the United States.
Their inception has been accom
plished in various ways, but the general idea has remained substantially
the same. Considerable latitude, too
has been allowed in the methods o:
building, and in the terrr.s upot
which residents may enter. Perhapt

Canadian public men, whether ln
the federal or provincial spheres,
who are really desirous of having
the country a.Ud its natural resources
���developed along the ltnea that will
beat promote Its prosperity, ought to
study and ream from the experience
of other nations, particularly those
whose history and circumstances indicate a more or less valuable corres-
. pondence. The United States affords
such an experience because, apart
from difference of climate, It was
faced wtth similar1 difficulties and
problems, while its methods have aet
precedents which the Dominion has
been only too prone to follow. More
particularly, 011 the side of Its dealings with' rtdtut'ai' resources and public utilities and services has the policy it adopted tended to exalt property rightij above human and public
rights and to'cAftble a few individuals, more alert and unscrupulous
than the average of their fellow-cltl-
���zens, to amass an undue proportion
���of the values that originally belonged
lo the whole people.
Bnstaucea of the amassment of
wealth by mAna that cannot now be

the United Stat os and Canada mineral lands, ore and natural gas wells,
water powers and publlc ullllitles
have been allowed to paaa Into private control, not only without compensation of any kinrt, but without conditions safeguarding the lights of the

Rough    Game     Indulged   in   by  Both
Sides at Revelstoke.
(Special to the News.)
Revelstoke, Aug. 19.���In a slow
but rough game this afternoon the
Sapperton Juniors, who are touring
the upper country, administered a defeat to the Revelstoke lacrosse team,
the final score being 7-4.
The players on both teams showed
a tendency to lay on the hickory
and kept the referee busy throughout of eighty minutes of play. The
visitors play at Salmon Arm.onWed-
nesday and will arrive in Westminster Thursday night.
Victoria, Aug. 19.���With the arrival
of Pat Scott, who Is to light Joe Bay-
ley, all is now In readiness for the
ureal mill. Scott was accompanied
by his manager, Dan Salt, who reports his protege in the best of
shape. Ernie Barrieau, the Vancouver mitt artist, who has renounced
his amateur standing, will be on deck
with Ohet Mclntyre, the V. A., C. instructor, and will challenge the winner to a bout.
A< cording to reports received from
<ast, tbe managers of the Big Four
teams are still at it, drawing up
rules and regulations, which they say
will be embodied in the constitution
i i the National Commission, the formation of which is scheduled in the
early fall.
The latest is from Percy Quinv
who doles out the following: "1 have
darwn up a clause which I think will
prove adequate. It includes the banishment from the game of every play-
i r taking part iu scraps, together
v. lh possible suspension and an added line."
That's all right, Percy Quinn, but
evidently at this stage of the pro-
i eedings the magnates of the I!lg
Pour and Mr. Conrad Jones of Vancouver, have forgotten there was
such a club as New Westminster,
who will have its little say In the
matter before a national commission
i.s formed.
The Royals are going to win the
Minto Cup from Vancouver. Everything points to It. The Royals are
stn ng enough to dispose of the Tor-
outos, , t'ornwalls, Edmontons, Reginas, or any other team that dares
fill the coffers of the Canadian Pa-
citln Railway Company in carfares bo
mat plainly speaking, the old and
battered silver wear is to be kept
within the portals cf the Carengle li
bran until the season of 1913.
Now then, does anyone suppose
that New Westminster will have no
say in this meeting to be held In
U'lniiepeg sometime in October. Does
anyone believe that a,delegate from
the Royal City will rhaVe t'ie jour
nev to the Peg and uk stilt whan thay
nominate Percy Quinn, the eastern
commissioner. Harry Cowan, repre
ser.ting the west (these names have
heen mentioned S3 possible) and per
haps some personage from the middle west to decide on a deadlock
Dees lt sound reasonable, Mr. Fan?
lienor gel busy. Manager Gray.
Vernon has been given an excellent example this week of the advertising value of the athletic prowess
of a community. Everybody ls asking "Where Is Sapperton?" ln other
words the popular mind, all along
the itinerary of the Sapperton Junior
i.acrosso Team, Is like a fleld plowed
and harrowed, made ready by curiosity for the sowing of facts, Which we
call advertising, which would bring
forth fruits of prosperity. The New
Westminster Progress Club followed
the inconsistent course of acknowledging the advertising value of the
scheme by sanding the boys the
badges which th|y wear, but neglecting to send financial support In
this connection It may be aald that
Mr. Cameron, the manager of the
team, deserves credit from the lovers
nf lacrosse for taking the boys in
tour, practically without financial
support, this year, and thus raising
the standard ot play throughout the
district cover 1.���Vernon News,

lected in four groups, knov. n as the
Corpus Juris Clvllis.
One of the cases cited In the book
and commented upon is that resulting from what was evidently a game
of some kind of baseball, ln course
of which one of the players threw his
ball, striking lt too violently against
the hand of a barber, who was Just
shaving a slave, and thus the throat
of the latter waa cut. An action under the Aqulllan law seems to be applicable, and a discussion follows in
the book as to who is to be sued
The commentator continues: "The
derision of this question depends on
further particulars, which, however
are not given. According to the facts
stated, one would think that the person who had thrown the ball is liable.
Procttli's. however, savs that the barber is liable. Th this Ulpian agrees, If
is was usual to play ln the place or
If. the place w&s .a frequented, one." .
The legal phases'herein con tal ried
will probably not interest the average fan, but it Is more than Interesting to flnd reference to baseball ln
legal cases arising almost 1500 years
ago, and probably even longer.
The   Bookie's   Wealth   Shows    How
Much the  Gambler Gets.
"It's only fools as   backs   'oases,"
Robert Ridsdale used   to   say;   "the
booki'-'s   thc   wise   man   as   pockets
their money."   And no one knew bet.
ter  what he  waa  talking about  than
the famous "pencil ler," who livpd to
mak�� ��47.00(1 over St. Giles's Derby,
and to drive behind  a pair of liiph-
Itepplng horses   past   the   Doncaster
inn in which ea a young man, he had
played   the   lowly   role   of    "boots."
Thnt he  ended   his   davs  in   a  New-
murket hay-loft with only three halfpence in his pocket was his own fault.
and not that of the "profession" that
had made a lich man of him.
Ridsdnle's partner, John Gully, wns
a  mnn of very different m ttie,  who
knew how to k<?pp the gold thnt poured  into hia  coffers.    A  butcher  and
pugilist in hi- younger days, who had
s >en the inside of prison walls,   the
"Game Cliiek"ti"  (as  he  was  known
to  fame for   his   prowess   with   his
fists)   was   the   "Leviathan"   of   the
bookmaking   world   long  before    he
reached his forth s.    Over mi" race he
netted    ��00,000,    he    cleared    ��45.000
when Margrave won   the   Leger;   he
invested  his   riches   in   broad   acres
and coal mines, found a seat at West-
minster, and  when   he   died, at   the
age of seventv-nine,   left   nearly ��1,-
000.000 behind  him.
And  the  same  story of easily  won
wealth is told of dozens of John Gully's    fellow    bookmakers,    many    of
whom climbed tlie   ladder   of   riches
Irom its loweM rungs.   Jo-' Bland was
a postboy  when   he   made   his  first
modest   book,     "for    silver    money";
P,iokham was a stableman; Fred Swindell  was.  It  :s said.   9  ontinan  when
he pocketed C100 on Chnrles XII. in
tl.,  Livcrpoe.! Cup���and so on through
the long \'..t. of tb*  "wise men" who
hav* (ound the laying ol odds such a
profitable gam". .
Oav.es.  who*- colossal bookmaking
was  the wondpr,of tlie turf world in
thf-iirsfhall tit the*last century, was
a  carpenter  when   Atilla's  Derby  put
��100 into   his   purse.    So   rapid   was
llis  success  thut   within  a  few years
he had a balance of ��133.000   at   his
bank    and    was    winning, or   losing
thousand* of   pounds   on   a   race   as
light-heartedly* as   if   the   sovereigns
w"re pence.   He dropped ��120,000  on
twe races snd cleared ��200.000 on four
others within the same   year;   while
in spite of the fact that Teddington's
Derby win cost him ��100,000. he ended the year more than this sum to the
And   such    giarts   as   Gully    and
Davies have had '���eir successors   in
more recent days, in   men   like   Mr.
Dunn and Mr  Fry. the latter of whom
died quit- recently  at Norwood.
When Mr. Fry'a attention was first
drawn   to   the   possibilities  of   book-
msking as a road to fortune, he we*
s linen-draper at Liverpool, who knew
at little of hora-'-racing as th�� mar
in the moon.   On:- day he wss asked
by a bookmaker,   who had   jot   into
difficulties, for a loan   on thc understanding that   he   ahould   receiv?   a
share in the profits of the book
These came as regularly ** clockwork, and so satisfied Mr.   Fry   thai
thera was money in the business >b*\
he  put ui his  abutters  an*  start-'d
on his own account with a capital of
��800, "which," he aays VI never :had
occasion to supplement.    .Commencing in amodtst way at Aaeot, where
he lost ��0 on the week, success e*nv
so quickly that he waa soon laying
bet�� in thousands of pounds, and was
making more money in a y>ar than
his shop would have yielded in a lifetime.   On two succeasive Cambride���-
shires he' lost ��60.000; but he could
afford to smile at such mlsfortun-
for his double loss wss mor- than recouped by a solitary Derby.
So enormous waa the scale ot lus
transactions that, when he died ther.
was owing to him consid-rahly over
��900,000, or more than 1.000 time* tlv
