iting Canadian  Navy
Idea An Alternative Has
to Be Evolved.
MsriwHwance of Fleet Units   on   the
Atlantic or Pacific���Contribution
of Cash or Ships.
��Wtawa, July 8.���The Evening CUI-
een says: "Nothing official respecting
the government's naval policy wlll be
Announced until there ls a consultation with the British admiralty and
before such a conference lt is very
���doubtful if anything will be determined -at .all. The matter has been
'discussed tentatively by the cabinet
uud while certain views may be
strongly entertained by the ministers,
they are Bubject to revision. Eliminating ithe Canadian navy idea, an alternative policy has to be evolved.
/Alternative Schemes.
It Ib believed here that this will
take the form either of maintenance
by Canada ot Hritish fleet units on
the Atlantic or Pacific coasts, a cash
���contribution, or a contribution of
battleships to be built in England and
under control of the admiralty with
Canadian representation on the board
governing their operations.
Whatever Is finally agreed upon, it
may be assumed that Canada's naval
assistance to the mother country will
lie commensurate witb the status of
tbe Dominion as the greatest Integral
part of the empire.
If 'the policy of Canadian maintenance and establishing of Canadian
battleships on the Atlantic and Pacific
coast shouid be the accepted policy,
the dockyards now existing or being,
as fell a�� the naval college at Hall-
tax and'the training ships Nlobe and
Itainbow will all be of utility.

Mormon Colony  Prepares to Defend
Itself���Railroads Being
/    Torn Up.
Juarez, Mexico, July 8.���Tbe Mexican revolution began today to shift
its scenes from the state of Chihuahua, bordering Texas and New
Mexico, to tbe state of Sonora, bounding Arizona and Southern California.
Nearly 2O00 rebel troops were sent
140 miles southwest of here to Casas
Qraades, on the Mexican Northwestern railroad, tbe new rebel base from
which tbe Invasion of the state of
Sonora la being directed.
Simultaneously, according to advices reaching here, about 2000 federal cavalry under Generals Tellez
and Rabago were moving northwest
from tbe city of Chihuahua where
General Huerta holds sway. This
force will ride, toward Casas Grandest,
threatening it from the rear while
the government forces In the state
of Sonora, commanded by General
SanjTnes, will assume the defensive
wltb the Intention of preventing the
passage or the Tebels into Sonora.
The rebels were destroying today
the Mexican Northwestern railway
south ���of Casas Grandes with the Idea
of blocking a formal movement of
troops and artillery by General Huerta
from Chihuahua City. Insurrectors
under General Campa, meanwhile, advanced Into the mountain passes bordering Sonora.
The march of tbe rebels westward
lies dlerctly In the path of several
Mormon colonies with a population of
nearly 3000 me/i, women and children.
Fear tbat tbe rebels will pillage the
country has led to a mobilization of
the colonists at Colonia Morelos,
about 65 miles southeast of Douglas,
Ariz. Here tbey will assemble their
cattle and supplies.
Being well supplied with arms and
ammunition, tbey intend to defend
themselves against the ravages of the
O. P. Ilrown. Mormon agent In El
Paso, said tonight he considered (he
situation serious and telegraphed
Senators Smoot, of Utah, and Fall, of
New Mexico, to obtain assurances of

Mr. Powell Will  Carry Out
Schema of Front Street
Buy  Motor Patrol Car���Finanees for
Waterworks and Hospital
Official notification of the appointment of Mr. A. O. Powell as consulting engineer In carrying out the
Front street improvement part of the
New Westminster harbor scheme was
made by Alderman White on behalf
of the harbor committee, at last
night's meeting of the city council.
This matter, be stated, had been
practically settled before the departure of Mayor Lee for England, but
had gone unannounced because of the
fact that Mr. Powell had not presented definite terms as to the basis on
which he would do the work. At the
previous meeting of the council on
Wednesday last these terms had been
received and were satisfactory to the
harbor committee.
Mr. Powell will receive 6 2-3 per
cent, of the $500,000 improvement,
providing the duration of the work is
not longer-than 23 months. For any
work over-and above that time additional compensation wlll be made.
Purchase Combined Patrol.
The combined police patrol and automobile ambulance which bas been
the subject of much discussion within
the past few months, became an accomplished fact when the report of
the special committee delegated to
take charge of the matter was adopted
by the council. It was decided to purchased immediately a Glide motor car,
the price being $4050.

���Mr. Jl. M. WeJbourne, formerly a
well known planter In the Philippine

.the prairie provinces yesterday.
Mr.   Welborne  says   that   the   prospects iter <large crops on the prairies
were never bettor, and the only problem that Is giving the farmers    any
uneasiness at all at the present time
4b the railway transportation question.
The lack of sufficient railways would
be the only tiring which could possibly
keep the present year from being the
largest in .the history of the Dominion
as far as agricultural exportation was
���concerned, .and as far as be was able
to ascertain there were several linn-
dr��d thousand acres more land under
���ciiltivaticm this year than last.
Speaking of public accommodation

to cope with the tremendous develop

Ottawa, July 8.���From the present
plans thn government will Introduce
and put through at the next session
of parliament the redistribution bill,
based on the new census. The flgurec
have been finally collaborated.
It Is probable that the b 11 after
being presented will be referred to a
special commltte�� of the House, which
will limit the (liferent constituencies
and determine the units of representation In rural as distinguished from
urban division. When tbe last redistribution bill was before the House
not a great deal of opposition was
encountered outside of the committee
where there was considerable compromise.
This time it may be different as
Uie east will lose ten or twelve seats
to the west, and there is a Btriklng

It, however, wonld practically exhaust this year's appropriation, and
would leave only about $12,000 from
tbe revenue to pay for the operating
he paved, tho laying ot the mains
would effect a considerable saving to
the board of works, but it would leave
the water committee with barely
sufficient money to effect Installation
���f services, etc., in line witb development.
Acting Mayor Gray thought that
tbis matter should be considered at
a special meeting, because if the
recommendation was voted upon it
would be necessary to pass supplementary estimates to carry on the
other work of the water committee.
Alderman Curtis acquiesced with
this srsgestlon, and seconded a motion to tbat effect made by Aldermar

Funds for Hospital.
Asking that tho $30,000 voted to the
hospital at the beginning of the year
for btiildliig purposes be transferred
to the account of the Royal Columbian hospital, Mr. B. S. Withers, the
secretary, submitted to the councll
the necessity of having the funds
available ln connection with the construction of the new building.
Alderman Kellington did not think
this money Bhould be handed over to
the hospital board as it was up to the
aldermen of the ctty to see that It was
expended In a proper manner. The
matter was referred to a special com
mittee to deal with.
Edmonds, July 8.���The usual weekly meeting of the Burnaby councll
waa enlivened somewhat last evening
by a sharp debate on the sewerage
question. The contestants were Alderman Hepburn, City Engineer Fellowes
and Consulting Engineer Creer, of
Vancouver, on one side, and Reeve
Weart and the councillors on the
After an hour's deliberation, the
municipality, through some mistake
or otherwise, found itself confronted
with a bill of $7000 as its share in
the preliminary work which has been
done on tlie China creek sewer running into False creek. And. farther-
more, the council, not wishing to
open a breach with the city of Vancouver, voted to accept this bill,
which will be paid towards the end
of the present year.
Vancouver's Scheme.
The cards last evening were plaved
with masterlike precision aud it went
to show that unless Burnaby is not
cautious, Its length of time as a separate municipality will soon cease
and will become absorbed into tbe
open arms of Vancouver. This was
the flrst time that the pet scheme of
the City on Burrard inlet to weld together the municipalities comprising
the lower mainland into one vast city,
witb Vancouver, of course, holding the
whip band, was unfurled to tbe public gaze.
Needless to say, lt has opened the
eyes of the councillors and in whatever plans they may make In the future, whether they be sewerage, transportation or otherwise, their rear will
be well guarded in case a retreat be
necessary. Two weeks ago a letter
from CUy Clerk McQueen, of Vancouver, was read before the council

Magistrate Edmonds Fines Contempt!
ble Greek Three Hundred Dollars
and Costs.
Pleading guilty to a charge of
white slavery laid under the bawdy
house act, a Greek merchant of Westminster was fined three hundred dollars and costs, or given the alternative
of six months in prison, by Magistrate
Edmonds yesterday morning.
The man, wbo has beeu under the
surveillance of tbe police for some
time, bad been using a young girl of
eighteen employed in his store on
Twelfth street, as a source of revenue.
In addressing the guilty man before
pronouncing sentence Magistrate Edmonds regretted that he could not
make the penalty heavier for an aci
which was so thoroughly contemptible
A frequenter of the house arrested
on a vagrancy charge was warned by
his worship to leave tlie city, while
the girl in the case was allowed to
go with a suspended sentence of two
months hanging over her Lead.

Edmonds, July 8.���The differences
between the Burnaby corporatioa and
the B. C. E. H. in connection with tbe
Highland Park cut-off were threshed
ont last evening tefore the board of.
work, and operations, which to aome ���
extent have been halted, pending the
settlement of the tangle, will be
rushed uow to completion with all
possible speed. Engineers Conway
and Vorce, together with Mr. Law-
son, solicitor for tbe company, were
In attendance, and explained bow the'
company stood in regard to the demands of the municipality at several
points along the line.
Wise  Road  Bridge.
Tbe chief bone of contention appeared to be a proposed overhead bridge
over the Wise road. The company has.
agreed to build a temporary structure
at this point 16 feet wide and 14 feet
high, bnt Burnaby demanded tbe right
that the B. C. K. It. construct a permanent bridge across the highway-
after six months' notice bad been,
This, Mr. Conway stated, was aa
injustice on the company, and made
it plain that Burnaby was well protected by having recourse to the minister of railways of the province.
Tbis the municipality agreed to, although a clause will be inserted la
the agreement showing the right or'
Burnaby to open up the matter wltb
the minister of railways at any time.
Better Accommodation.
It waa a give and take in the otber -
matters.   Reeve Weart suggested that
Barnaby agree to the requests of the ���
company if tbey in return would grant
concessions to the municipality. These
were increased freight accommodation

motion made by one of its
councillors, neither would that action
be ignored.

Settling Paving Matters.
In regard to the recently let paving contracts, the city engineer reported that he had been approached,
by thc Hassam Paving company In regard to the paring of Fourth avenue
wltb Hassam pave. The ratepayers
on Fourth avenue, he understood,
were petitioning against this pavement and the Hassam company had
signified their willingness to sublet
the contract to the Bltulithic company, who were prepared to undertake
the work. There would be no additional cost to the ratepayers providing
this transfer was made.
The Bltulithic company On the
other hand were anxious to sublet
the construction of the sewers, sidewalk^ grading, etc., on Third avenue
to the Hassam Paving company, they
of course laying the bltulithic material as commissioned by the city recently.
The enbjlneer was instructed to deal
with both of these requests as he
deemed tho moat advisable, and that
the work in any case should ba car-

Similar Medicine.
Engineer Creer attempted to explain matters. He stated this was no
Vancouver scheme nor a Burnaby
matter In its entirety, but one for
Greater Vancouver.
"New Westminster has been prevented by the provincial government
from constructing a trunk sewer into
tbe Fraser, and therefore that city
must eventually enter tbis Greater
Vancouver proposed system. The
municipalities along tbe river have a
perfect right to protest the construction of such a sewer."
To this Reeve Weart exclaimed,
"And Burnaby will also in that event
have tbe right.to protest the emptying of sewerage into False creek."
This was a poser to Mr. Creer and
the gentleman had little more to say
on the matter.
Accept Bill.
In explaining the situation, the
reeve stated that in 1911 Burnaby
agreed to stand her share of the preliminary expense aB long as the
amount would not exceed $400. After
vainly endeavoring to get data on the
work the council was presented at
the, eleventh hour with a b'll for
$7000. There was certainly some
joker in the pie, but as two of the
councillors had supported a motion
made at a meeting of the joint sewerage committee, that Burnaby's share
wai) to be one-fifth of the cost, they
might as well accept tt in the best
v*ay jioatfibje:v
'After much -further discussion, a
motion by Councillor Brltton was
adopted and Burnaby. wfll accept thc
report of Engineer Lea, stating tho
amount assessed against the municipality, which is expected late in the

that startling conditions will be found

living cn their own property, will find
themselves encroaching on public,
It Is for this reason that the attorney general was requested to allow,

Strange   Experiences   Told   by
land's Super-Tramp.
Our everyday carelessness, and tlie
manner in which it provides a living
ior vagrants, is strikingly illustrated
by a chapter entitle^ "The Finder"
in "The True Traveler," a remarkable
book written by Mr. W. H. Davies,
the literary tramp, who has given us
such books aa "Beggars" and "The
Autobiography of a Super-Tramp," in
addition to poetical works and a novel, and who, not from necessity, but
because he loves tlie life, has for many
years Ird a. nomadic existence, mixing
with people of the underworld in
various parts of the globe.
It was in a London lodging-house
that Mr. Davies met "The Finder," a
man who day after day walked the
streets of London with his eyes fastened on the ground, looking for things
which people had lost. In a confidential moment "The Finder" showed
Mr. Davies the contents pf liis locker
in the lodging-house.
"When I saw the things lie had I
was astonished, for I believe this man
could have made a living by merely
walking about. He had several fountain pens, one gold-mounted, wliich
must have cost thirty or forty shillings. He showed me a gold pencil-
case and two silver ones; also a silver matchbox, finely embossed, which
still contained the matches as it had
been found. 1 saw several purses, all
of wliich had contained money; and
there was a lady's silk parasol, which
had been left on a seat in one of the
parks, and also a gentleman's costly
care found In the same way.
"Ho showed tne several articles of
jewelry, such as rings, bracelets, and
brooches; and one petulant, which
was ft silver cross with ft Christ crucified in gold, which he had found one
Sunday morning in Hyde Park. Evjn
books���popular novels that bad been
left on seats, some of which may net
have been forgotten, but rend and
thrown away���were to ba seen in this
man's locker."
"The Finder" confessed that sometimes he went for a whole day without
finding anything of the least value,
but on other days he was almost certain to find a number of things. One
of his methods was to visit a heath
or common after a Bank Holiday,
when he invariably found something
of value. And he is apparently not
the only one Who follows this extraordinary occupation of looking for
wealth on the ground, for he finds it
necessary, after a Bank Holiday, to
be on the spot he has in mind as
soon as it is daylight, "for there are
others that do the same."
The contents' of his locker must
have cost the owners considerably
over $590. Extraordinarily enough, he
never attempted to sell any of these
things, for he possessed a small income wliich was enough to keep him,
and purposely kept himself looking
like the commonest beggar so that
people would take less notice when
they saw him stooping to pick things

Whitohor8e, Y. T., July 4.���Early
this'week there arrived In Whltehorse
two men, Peter OlBen and Fred Swanson, both from the land of the Viking
kings, who have since left in a small
boat for Teslln, from which point they
will penetrate the country to the eastward in quest of the bodies of the
Danielson .brothers, who are believed
to have perished in that practically
unknown region upwards of a year
In fact, ono of the bodies, which
was identified as one of the lost
brothers, waB found by the prospectors late last fall, and it is in the hope
of finding some trace of the other
that Olsen and Swanson are now on
the weird quest.
From the trappers wlio came out to
Teslin last winter, it was learned that
there Is a belief among the trappers
and prospectors who operate "in that
country that one of the Danielsons
sickened and died and that the other
became demented and, in that condition, would flee from the approach
of his fellowmen. This theory was
based on the fact that smoke was frequently seen as though coming from
a camp flre, but on approaching, curious ones wero never able to get a
sight of tl/e builder of the fires. Hu-"
man tracks were also frequently seen,
but no sight was obtained of tho
The Danielsons were old prospectors and spent many years in the Stewart River country. Olen and Peters
are both old-timer3 in the country;
While the latter did not state, it ls believed they are searching for conclusive evidence of the death of the
missing men on account of relatives,
who are desirous of collecting from
the life insurance companies with
which the lost men carried policies.
Methods of Mormon Missionaries
Agitate London.
London, July 8.���Much space ha3

A party of Mormon elders were
heckled during a service in their temple at Brixton last night, three clergymen being prominent figures among

Greatest Motion Picture Film Yet
A wise man wrote long ago, "Of the
making of books there is no end." If
he had lived ln these days he would
doubtless have applied the same remark to the cinematograph films. Just
as there are classics ln literature, so
are thero moving pictures whtch tower over the heads of their fellows like
giants In a crowd. Among pictorial
Titans must be Included the truly wonderful production "The Coming of Columbus," which Is being shown at the
Edison Theatre. This film took no less
than three years to make, at a cost of
over $50,000.
It may be noted in passing that the
shipB used were exact replicas of
those actually used by Columbus, and
were presented by the Government of
Spain to the United States for the
Columbus Exposition, and that even
the original log-book of Columbus was
used as property, whilst every costume worn by the three hundred and
fifty odd actors employed in staging
the film was a true copy of the actual
dress of the period.

Calgary Official Says American Immigrants Abuse Reduced Railroad
Calgary, July 8.���Are the American
immigrants who come to settle in the
Canadian West imposing upon the Canadian railway companies by obtaining reduced transportation rates under false pretences?
Immigration Commissioner Cralg of
of this city thinks that they arc.
He says that as far as he can see
nine-tenths of the American settlers
who come out here at reduced rates
under the pretext that tbey are going
to take up land never had the least'
Intention of doing so, and that they [
merely misrepresent themselves as being land seekers Ih order to get transportation rates.
Three American immigrants bad
just been asking the commissioner for
a letter, saying that they had been refused the cheap rates from this ctty
Into British Columbia, as they complained tbat they had been unable to
procure tbe cheap rates from here
west. The railway company had refused to give the men cheap tickets,
as they made out that they could not
find land to suit them in this prov-
province and Intended to try in British Columbia.
The abuse of these cheap rates by
American immigrants should be put a
stop to, declared Commissioner Cralg.
Hundreds of Immigrants from the
United States, ln fact nine-tenths of
them come up here under the pretence that they are going to take up
land, whereas they never do and never intend to. They come here to take
advantage of the richness of this
country and to better themselves and
surely they can pay the ordinary
rates. Then they make trouble because the railway company gets its
back up and refuses to cart them all
over the country at the special rates.

Only a few of tho tenants have
obeyed the ftmrfaya edict, and the

deal with the disobedience of the remainder. Mr. Caffrey expressed the
opinion that a little threatening would
be useless. It was decided to take
legal action when the council got the
complete list of the bachelors.

TUESDAY,  JULY  9,  1912.
Quite recently���as every one should
be aware���there has been an awakening in Westminster to  a better realization of its own importance and pos-
sibilititis as a port.   This is ln every
way a thing for which to be thankful,
but there is another branch ot public
enterprise which has not been  heard
of so much of late in the stress and
storm tf bylaw campaigns.
We refer to the steps taken at the
latter end of May towards the solving ot the problem as to why the province of British Columbia last year
Imported foodstuffs to the value of
seventeen millions of dollars, which,
it is claimed���and with reason���she
could very well produce herself.
On May 30  a convention  of representatives from the various municipalities ct tlie Fraser valley and of the
city was held, and then and there the
delegates present  formed  themselves
into a commission of enquiry with a
view tq presenting data   to the  government, and asking for the appointment cf a royal   commission   of lhe
same nature. Since the date mentioned above there has been no meeting of
the Board of Trade until Friday last,
and wo are glad now to see that this
body  has  taken  further steps along
the same direction as that proposed
by the commission of enquiry, which
body arose out of the efforts   of the
The problems to be faced in British Columbia at the present time are

Hi*, fitting that New Westminster,
the market town of the Fraser valley
should   realize   this,   but   it   is   not
enough for a few to work for the betterment of present conditions.    It is
the duty of ail us.   For to date what
there is of this city is to a very large
extent  the  natural  outcome   of  the
farming community at the back of us
In the valley.     We have our present
harvest of the sea and of the forests,
amd we look   for a   greater  harvest
from   the   spilling   granarieff of   tho
weBt and the wares of the world that
will gome hither when Uie harbor ia
developfid, but it must not bf forgotten t&at of the C0O.000 acres of avail
able farming land in the lower Fraser
valley only a part of It is at the present time productive.
The problems affecting the trans-
formal ion of the present timbered
lands into profitable farms are also
many, and none recognize this faofc
more Seeply than do the membc.-s of
the Hoard of Trade and members of
similar bodies throughout the wliole
sweep of the district. As things stand
wt present the progress of the valley
is comparatively slow, it Is losing
nun and money while Westminster Is
suffering hi a proportionate degree.
Recognising, therefore, the urgency
of the wliole question the Dominion
government has now been petitioned
to devise some scheme hy which this
land may bu thrown open lo imimv
riiate settlement Boards of trade arc
.sometimes not noted for the celerity
���of their movements; neither are gov
eminent.-;, but it is certain that if the
people cf Westminster join with the
people i f the valley In agitating for
the removal of obstacles wllich are
not merely a bar to progress to themselves, but are detrimental to the
whole province and consequently to
the Dominion, results will come -even
If they come slowly.
That the city of New Westminster
hae led the way in an effort to tackle
the myriad problems connected with
land settlement ln this province is
another, of those matters upon which
thau citizens can pride themselves.
First are we In harbor schemes, cut
and dried and practical. Let us see to
it that from the city or the district
there f hall arise some one capable of
solviuf. or helping to solve, the great
problem of the land.
TbfiV indeed   may we  borrow the
motto of our sinter city, for "By sea
l~we shall protnier." -
A shipping correspondent of the Vancouver Daily Province, gives some of
the chief reasons why the Panama
Canal when completed will help Vancouver. In view of the fact that
Westminster by the time the canal
opens will be in a better position to be
recognized as a port, his observations
are of interest.
He says:
"The two main  reasons why Vancouver will ber.ellt by the completion
of the Panama Canal, aside from the
general benefits to   be derived   from
this work by all ports on the Pacific
Coast,   are   firstly,   because  railroad
through    rates    to   Vancouver    from
points in the United States   are   not
subject to the   Interstate   Commerce
Commission   and   secondly,   because
the American maritime laws of coast-1
wise shipping prohibit the carriage of
freight by a  foreign   vessel   between
two American ports.
The effect of the   foregoing   fact5*.
will be to drive all railroads in the
Paciflc  Northwest  to  establish lines
or connections into Vancouver to enable them to make their shipments at
rates free from control ��� of the Interstate Commerce  Commission and   to
make   their   shipments    to    United
StateB Atlantic Coast ports in foreign
bottoms they will have to send them '
through    Vancouver   to   avoid    the
coastwise laws.
Tliere is practically no American
merchant marine and there never
can be one sufficient to cope with the
Panama trade, which will grow faster than ships can be built to carry
it. The great bulk of the trade must
be carried in foreign bottoms and on
the Paciflc Coast it can only be carried through the Port of Vancouver.
The United States will be unable to
alter the coastwise laws without giving up forever the hope of establishing a mercantile marine.
Nor will the American railways
wish to alter the conditions that now
exist. It is more than easy for them
to handle their export and import
trade through the Port of Vancouver.
and they have the added advantage of
escaping the Interstate Commerce
Commission and tliey will all be forced to come here if they wish to participate in the new trade to be built
up with tha Atlantic Coast to America
for at no other Pacific port can they
find ships legally capable of oarrying
the trade."
Royalists Attack Towns  In   Northern
Districts���Republican Government
Checks Movement.
Lisbon, July 8.���The long   expected
royalist  movement  began  yesterday,
but according to official information,
it has been checked.   The outbreaks
were confined for the most   part   to
some small districts in the north. The
telegraph   communication   which was
cut   at Villareal   and   Braganza, has
been restored and the railroads have
been cleared of obstructions.     It appears that Captain Gouciere. tho Royalist   leader  with   the   bulk   of his,
forces well armed, ls encamped' near
Montalegre, but the government has
troops along the frontier capable, It is
announced of exterminating the Royalists lf they show fight.
An official note says that the garrison at Montalegre has been reinforced and has stopped the advance
of 400 Royalists under Gouciere. The
forces, however, are advancing along
the road from Villareal.
Disturbances are still occurring in
various parts of the country and the
Royalists are meeting with little or
no resistance. A bomb exploded today in a house in Lisbon, blowing off
the roof and killing a man named
Cunha who recently was acquitted of
the charge of sedition. It is believed
that Cunha was making a bomb at the
time of the explosion. Sveral others
were wounded.
Madrid, July 8.���An official de
spatch from Luy says ISO Royalists
attacked Valencia di Minso, a town
and fortress connected by a bridgo
with Luy, but were driven off with a
loss of three men killed and several
wounded. The bulk of the force then
surrendered to the Spanish authorities.
The city council, civic officials, representatives of the board of trade and
the Progressive association will leave
this morning at 9 o'clock for Coquitlam Dam where they will be the
guests of the B. C. E. R. The traction
company has been making large improvements at the dam and these will

The fight is growing bitterer dailv.

over the election lists. This is tlie
first time Saskatchewan has ever had

charge that hundreds of their voters
have been left off the lists. The Liberals claim that they are hit as bad

Meredith, Mercerburg academy; Mel-
bin W. Sheppard, Irish-American A.
O., and Ira N. Davenport, University
of Chicago, finished in the order
named in the final heat and each

The Americans fa'led to shine ln

New York Athletic club, being tho
only American left for '.he flnil Four
of the ten listed for tha final heat
are British, with the Cual'an George
Goulding, who capture 1 the llrst heat
handily, and Norman, of South Africa,
-also representing the Union Jack.
The Britishers held their old places
in walking. The giants of the Stockholm police force pulled over the
London bobbies in the tug of war.
Iu the high jump Alma W. Richardson, Brigham Young university, won
first place easily, clearing the bar on
th first attempt at 193 centimeters
(about ti feet 3% inches). George L.
Horine, Leland Stanford university,
the holder of the world's record, took
third p lace, jumping 191 centimeters.
The German, Liesche, unexpectedly
captured second place.
Piatt Adams and Benjamin W.
Adams, both of the New York A. C,
took second and third places In the
standing broad jump, which was won

third in their respective heats. All
qualified for the final.
B. C. Must Guarantee $2500 to Secure
Match in Victoria Next
Victoria, July 8.���It is more than
probable that Victorians will have a
chance of seeing the famous Australian test match eleven in action, as an
effort is now being made to induce
them,"'to give an exhibition game in
Britisli Columbia while on their way
back :to Australia. Mr. Stirling, one
of the Vancouver cricketers, while ln
England recently, approached one off'
the executive of the Australian team
in order to put before him a suggestion that a match should be played in
this province. It was stated that this
could be accomplished if the club
were guaranteed a aum of $2500.
C. A. L. Payne, secretary of the
Vancouver Cricket Club, has been In
communication over the matter with
Crawford Coates, secretary of the local cricket organization. Mr. Payne
suggested that the match be played
in Victoria, as the climate here is
more dependable at that time of the
year than on the mainland.
The match will possibly take place
about Oct. 20, and a representative
team will in all probability be chosen
to meet the crack eleven. It would be
difficult to overrate the significance
of such a meeting to the great summer game as played in British Columbia. The Australians are known
throughout the world as the keenest
lovers ancl most skilful exponents of
the game, and it Is hoped that every
effort will be put forward to raise the
necessary amount to guarantee their
presence in this province.

Chicago, July 8.���Pitcher "Rube"
Marquard 'met hiB Waterloo after winning nineteen straight victories. He
was taken out after the sixth inning,
Chicago defeating New York in the
opening game of the series. This is
Marquard's first defeat of the season.
His inability to foil the local men at
critical times and errors of his teammates proved his undoing. He was
opposed by James Lavender, a recruit, who, backed by the heavy opportune hitting of Chicago, had little
difficulty In keeping his team ln the
lead. Lavender allowed five hits,
which were bunched in two innings.
Marquard gave way to Devore in the
Beventh to allow the outfielder to bat
and Tesreau was sent in to pitch.
Schulte's fielding and the batting of
Evers and Sayer were the features.

Vancouvers, Jimmy GlfTord for the
past two days has been under the
weather and Is threatened with ap-
pendicles! If such a misfortune had
attacked the Westminsters earlier ln
the season the result would have Indeed been serious, but the recent
acquisition of Harry Hyland haB filled
in what otherwise would have been
a gaping hole.
Hyland will be back on the home
after a two weeks lay-off which wlll
mean big Bill Turnbull going back on
the defence with either T. Rennle oi
Cliff Spring as centre.
Up to late last evening, Jimmy was
reported to be much Improved, but
hls appearance on the team at Satun

been a feature, and all supporters of

I At the Poorhouse
It Was Different From What
Jessica Expected.
"1 don't see why you would name a
girl child Jessica. You might 'a' known
she'd grow up so prim and high headed and hateful no man ln his senses 'd
ever want to marry her, and, land
knows, women that don't marry have a
hard time," Grandma Cole said to her
son's meek widow.
Mrs. Cole answered a little tremulously. "But, mother, tbey do want to
marry her. Jessy might 'a' bad four
proposals last year lf only she'd 'a'
gone aud let tbe men speak ouL"
"And who were the men, I'd like to
know?" Grandma puffed, ber throat
swelling visibly. "Widderwers wltb
nine children or else one foot ln the
grave, or cranky old bachelors, or,
maybe, even preachers. Besides, bow
can you know eveu a preacher wants
to marry you unless he ups and says
so? I never did bold with this way of
niakln' out every man thnt went to a
house or even rode post lt had a notion
of golu' there court In'."
She paused In breathless triumph, lf
Mrs. Lem Cole had been wise - she
would have held her peace. Grandma
bore controverting very ill Indeed, and
to prove her In the wrong was to risk
everything. Mrs. Lem knew that very
well, but a goaded woman is often a
de.��perato oue. Therefore she burst
out: "Well, three of the men���and they
weren't widowers nor preachers, but
real good chances���asked me to usk
Jessy If she'd listen to 'em. And tho
other one"���
"There wasn't any other one. Maria.
I don't believe one word you're say-
In'," grandma broke out furiously.
"Kour proposals indeed! Why, Ann
Lisa didn't have but three ln the
whoie of last year and the beans
around ber all tbe time like bees
around a honey pot."
"The other one was Jimmy Wakefield. And he wouldn't be stopped.
Just up nnd asked Jessy like a man,"
Mrs. Lem said, not meekly, but with
such red spots In her cheeks she looked almost ns young as her dnugbter.
"Get out of bere, you!" grandma
panted. "Jimmy Wakefield. Indeed:
Why, he's never bad a notion to any
body bnt Ann I.lza. And she's goin' to
take him. too. wben she gets good and
ready. Don't you dare talk of hlm
wantln' that stick of n Jessy. If 1

you've snid I'd send you straight out

"but mammy told tbe truth, nothing

Jessy had been for going sway then,
but her mother's timorous fears hnd
prevailed on her to stay. Jessy was
not strictly pretty. Her eyes were not
serious, her lips too severe. She had
i good chin, flue nnd clean cut. and s

grandma commanded fretfully.
Ann Eliza came In from the garden,
both ber bands full of dewy roses.
"Here! Take these and fix the parlor

Jessica shook ber head aud turned toward the door. Grandma had weakened sensibly. She was on the point of
mumbling out an apology. But as Ann

Heartt, Ont., Is Making a brave Bid
For Success.
What towns exist to-day in Ontario's great hinterland are the result
of developments that have taken place
in the exploitation of her mine or
forest wealth. The flrst thing we ask
of a new town in the north is: What
mines are there or what pulpwood
treasure? But the popular conception
of that largely-unknown region is
changing. People are beginning to
realize  that  the  north  has  a  bigger
n( ,. ���.   , .  .. ,   . ,. . , boast, a grander heritage of which to.
nt that; I told you what would come of j seild despflU,hes  to the  city  papers,
and, after all, a more alluring life to
offer the restless from other lands.
We are beginning to hear of towns being built upon a faith in the resources
of the top six inches of the soil,
whioh the new settlers believe possesses more gold than the whole interior of the earth. The latest story
comes from Hearst, an ambitious
collection of huts that is moving on
fast in a faith pinned to the Clay Belt.
The prospector may do much for
Hearst, writes a young railway employe in the new burg, 130 miles west
of Cochrane, on the N. T. Ry., who
seems to have grasped the right view
of things���tliere are rumors of hidden
treasures. But, whatever Uie railroads
or prospectors may do for her,
Hearst's real future lies in the miles
of agricultural laud stretching out on
every side, even to the Bay. Facts
already established about the soil beyond Ontario'.-* present farming district Bhould make the inhabitants of
that embryo town truly optimistic.
There are no hills or rocks within a
reaching rarlius of Hearst and muskegs are practically unknown.' The
surface soil is rich in ita centuries of
forest mould, and below the humus
is a valuable subsoil of clay. "
Heajrt was surveyed last September,
'but it has not long borne the name.
The Provi. cial Government had decided on  establishes  a townsit?   there
setting beggars on horseback!" ber anger flamed up hotterJhan ever.
"You do as you're told!" she cried,
catching Jessica by the shoulders and
trying to shake ber. "You sny you
want to work for a llvln'. Prove It by
waltln' on your betters!"
Jessica set ber teeth hard, broke from
the quavery hold and rushed away. At
the steps she stopped, smiled bitterly
and sbook tbe dust from her feet
Over ber shoulder she called clearly:
"Mother, meet me ut the big gate ln an
hour. By then I sball know exactly
wbat we can do."
Ten minutes later sbe stood ln the
Wakefield yard facing Jimmy, with her
heart beating so It half suffocated ber.
She had so dreaded to tell what must
be to'.d���to ask tbe help tbat was Imperative. It was not much, only to carry her mother nnd their scant belongings to the poorliouse. Any shelter
would be better than the Cole roof.
There was nobody else she could ask.
Jimmy was the only friend within
walking distance���moreover, the single
person to whom she could bring herself to make sucb appeal. Sbe was, in
n way, bound to make it Sbe had
promised wben sbe denied him tbnt
dearer promise to call on him If sbe
found herself in need of him.    Now
Ireland Bewails the Loss of Her Best
to   Canada.
London,    July      8.���Another     wall
comes out of   Ireland, deploring   the I
fact that Canada is taking   the   best ]
young men and women. ^T^~^
The report of the Newry Technical
School, which is one of the best in the |
north of Ireland, states that out of 375 |
students over 60 are now away from
the district.   It says:
"If the 60 were devoting  their na-l
tive talents  and   acquired   skill   and i
knowledge   to   the   development   of J
.their own country   in   Cork, Belfast,
Galway or Donegal, there would notj
be any  serious cause for complaint.
But they have gone to Canada.  They
were reared and trained and educated
in Newry; Montreal and Toronto and
Winnipeg will   reap- the   reward ' of |
Newry's efforts."
she was blessing him silently that he I and   had   named   it   Mattawishquia
bad not asked anything, bad listened
only to what she cared to tell and said
afterward, with a little soothing touch
on her band: "You did right to come to
me, Jessy. Of course I'll take you anywhere you may want to go."
"You���you must only send us. Black
Billy cab take us ln the wagon. Grandma will be so angry lf she knows you

Very shortly he made her sit down
on the bench under the big elm and
went nway whistling, to reappear all
In a whiffet, driving a spanking pair,
which drew, a double seated vehicle,
spick nnd span.
"1 think we'd better make the trip
a quick one." was all he said in an-
'swer to Jessy's expostulation.
Almost before she knew it she was
sitting beside bim. bowling along the
turnpike at tbe team's best pace. As
quickly her mother was gathered up.
and. the hand luggage properly bestowed, Jimmy amazed Jessy by bidding ber sit behind, adding. "1 wnnt to
talk to mammy, and these horses don't
let me turn by bead for any considerable time."
Jc.-aj began to feet desperately lonely.    She could not even divert her��oir
by   watching the dazzle of tbe tty'ng
spokes   n*   tbe   wheels   spun   round.
Jimmy   was   drlring   very   fast   and
keeping ro tbe turnpike,   lt must be lie
meant   to   take   tbem   through   town.
Tbat. no doubt accounted for his choice
of a rig.   She knew be bated a shabby
out tit especially upon Saturdays nnd
court days.    It might be he had business that could  not  wait  but  somehow sbe felt tbnt be was nnkind to
t ii in k of anything but ber extremity.
Then she sunk Into a sort of dnze. wondering dully bow It would seem to find
herself n pauper, duly committed.   She
hnd not  thought uf that  before.    Of
course there were legal forms before
ihey could claim the last refuge of the
destitute, and would not thp authorises get back ut grandma?   Sbe had a
dim idea tbnt well to do folk hnd to
answer for their near kin.
No doubt that was wbat Jimmy wns
s|)e:iklng ubout. Ue was talking low
and eagerly to mummn. Yes, he was
tQinlng the horses toward lhe courthouse square. In n wink tliey drew
up tliere, and Jimmy, springing do'vn.
lield out h'.s arms to her. "You know
there are ii itj nge ments. Wlll you
tn��t nie to make tliem? ' he usked very
Je.sslcn could only bow her bend.
Speech was beyond tier. Jimmy looked
nl bor, his eyes tender, yet mlsetilev.
ous "I wnnt to commit you for life
to n poorhouse of which 1 nm keeper,"
he whispered, "Mamma Is willing.
What do you soy?"
"Nothing," Jessica said, but n. si>p
said It she laid ber band in Jlmui.v s
strong clasp and dropped ber ion-*
lashed lids to veil a rush or happy
when the National Transcontinental
Commission chose the spot for a division point, baing located some one
hundred ar.d thirty mile3 west of
Cochrane. The commission called it
Grant, in honor of the railway's chief
engineer,-.but it was not to be known
as that long, for immediately the
Postoffice Department objected-, on the
ground that there is already a Grant
in Ontario. A third christening was
ordered ,and the name of the new
Provincial Minister of Lands, Forests
and Mines was given to the infant
town of scarcely two months.
While it is the National Transcontinental Railway that is to make
Hearst known, and the agricultural
wealth of the clay belt, settles are
confident, will sometime make her
great, there are possibilities hidden
in the rocks ami forest that the little
town cannot afford to overlook. Rumors have been current of the discoveries of silver deposits, and there may
be other valuable minerals awaiting
but capital and enterprise to draw
them to the world's market. Besides,
the choice timber lands.stretching for
miles on all sides are a wealth in
themselves, ar.d in them are pulp
a,reas.%r.d riyers affording joppostftni-
tie* for power, 'T
Hearst hopes to  attract  people by
her climate,  which,  while  it permits
of occasional drops ln the mercufy to \
���50 dei!rees below zero in  winter, has '
a beaiitiiu', summer o! long days and
oool evenings.   The winter is also a
pleasant season, for, although it gets
very cold, there are fewer stormy or
otherwise dhagra.'abte days than part3
of older Ontario experience.
Proved of Great Value to Me"
There is only one explanation for the
numbers of enthusiastic letters tl��at we
receive praising Na-Dru-Co Dyspepsia
Tablets, and that is that these tablets
certainly do cure any kind of stomach
trouble. ***
Here is a typical letter from Miss
Eliza Arnisworlhy, Canto, N.S.:
"It is with pleasure I write to inform
you that your Na-Dru-Co Dyspepsia
Tablets havo proved of great value to
me. I tried remedy after remedy but
without any lasting gocd. Having heard
of your tablets curing sucli 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
can only come to an honest remedy,
compounded according to an exceptionally good formula, from pure ingredients, by expert chemists. If you are

Good Advice.
Sir   Edward   Clouston,   like   many
������ther   Canadians,   has   learned   that
nothing tics up a railway like a driving snowstorm.    A few years ago in
February, the Ontario railways were
almost completely  tie!  up  with  one
of ths worst blizzard* experienced in
vears.    At that time Sir Edward had
an important engagement in Ottawa,
and   although   the   weather   prophets
forecasted bad snowstorms, he decided  to  make  the trip by the C.P.R.,
says The Toronto Star Weekly.
The train crew had a desperate fiifht
to make headway Irom the time they

milis  from  one  of the  smallest stations   on   the   line,  the  engine  went
Sir     Edward     and     Eir     Thomas
Shaucthncssy,   the    president    of  the
O.P.R.,  were warm  friends, so when
^:r Edward  was informed that there
was to b^ a serious delay he resolved
to telegraph Sir Thomas.
A brakeman started out to make his
vay t'iree miles to the telegraph office, and   Sir   Edward   gave   him   a
.r.<o:ial measaue to the C.P.R. president.   He also insisted that the brake-
