VOLUME 7, NUMBER 133.
NEW WESTMINSTER, B.C., SATURDAY MORNING, AUGUST 10, 1912.
HtlCB FIVE 0BNT8
HAS ACHIEVED
MUCH ALREADY
President Gives An Account
of Work of Progressive
Association.
Westminster   Has  Benefitted by  Publicity and Visits���Many New
Suggestions.
BOARD Of WORKS     [STAVE LAKE POWER
AND CAR QUESTION
Conference with Tramway Officials���
Liability for Paving���Modern
Rolling Stock.
President Frank P. Smith's report,
mead at the meeting of the Progressive association last evening, made
the fact very apparent that during the
short lime which has elapsed since
the inception of the organization, a
great amount of good work haa been
accomplished, indicating as the presi
���dent expressively put It that the body
was a "live wire."
Dr. Smith gave^n extensive resume
of tbe work of the association during
the past two months, dwelling at
length upon the success which had attended the two luncheons, and the
membership campaign.
"In ah -early stage of tie activities
of the association," declared Dr.
Smith, "It seemed probable that there
would be a certain amount cf overlapping nnd friction between the associa
tion, the board of trade and the pub
licity commissioner, without steps
were taken to prevent it. Accordingly a committee of control of the three
bodies was formed. This plan has
proved very successful and the worl;
has consequently been allotted to the
province covered by each of the various bodies."
Success of Publicity.
Proceeding, the president touched
upon the part taken by the Progressive association in supporting the
money by-laws, and in publicity work.
Many articles on Westminster, chiefly
prepared by the secretary. Mr. Ken
neth Myers, had been printed in
perod cals and journals, without doubt
giving Westminster publicity never
before possible to attain. The slogan
competition had also been recognized
by the press In Eastern and Western
Canada aa well aa aeross the border.
"At present,'   weut on  th^*,   president, "the secretary of tbe association
la   busy   preparing  statistics  on     the
city,  while  a  special  committee trom
the association  Is at work on a booklet acheme.    Photographs of the city I
and   t>Mi!>r   picture   post   cards'  than
any possible to procure at present art
also matters under consideration."
Was Instrumental.
To  the  association.   ttae\a'**aA    Pf.
Smith, was due the credit of bringing
the party of Britisli manufacturers to
the city, and other Important    questions first brought to the notice of the
proper authorities  were  tho removal
Of  the  dredging  office,  and  thc protest  against  the conversion    of    the
dredge   Fruhling  into  an   oil   burner.
In   this   connection   resolutions   were
passed    and    forwarded    to    Ottawa
pointing out the real facts of the case,
and such information had undoubtedly
heen   instrumental   for the action  of
the departu cut in sending a representative  to investigate the matter,    of
which there was every possibility of
an early remedy.
The Importance of the association
being represented on all occasions
such as the Panama catu'.l convention
at Calgary, the Seattle Potlatch and
other iarge events of a similar nature,
said Dr. Smith, was amply exemplified In the great amount of publicity
which had accrued to the city as the
result of the visit of Secretary Myers
to both of these cities. Particularly
was this true ln the case of the
Panama convention when information
regarding Westminster's harbor
scheme was given prominence ln the
Calgary papers.
For Clvl:  Improvement.
In addition to this the association
had taken up a number of matters
with the c'tv council with the object
of civic betterment.
The members of the druggists' convention now In session at Vancouver
would visit thn city on Saturday, declared the doctor, and It was the
Progressive association which had
been responsible In the main for their
coming, lt was of great Importance,
he thought, to extend civic hospitality
to such bodies whenever possible, and
he was pleased with the hearty way
In which other public bodies had cooperated in this regard.
Money Needed.
Lack of ready cnsh, he continued,
was the handicap under which the
association had labored since Its organization. At the present time lt.
was dependent upon the generosity of
a private flrm for an office, a state of
affairs whiqh should not be allowed
to continue longer than absolutely
necessary. Lank of money also had
impeded the work of getting other
municipalities, who with Westminster
were interested In the develonment of
the Eraser valley In line with a joint
policv fer the betterment of the lower
mainland.
"Finally I wish to take this minor-
tunlty of expressing my appreciation
nf our secretary," concluded Dr,
Smith. "Without flattery I wish to
say that Mr. Myers is a painstaking
official and Is filling hls position admirably. The good things he has done
are too numerous to mention, and in
my opinion I thinlt It would bo extremely difficult to find a man to
equal him in efficiency."
After a motion had    been   passed
(Continued on Pare El��rht.>
At a meeting held yesterday morning at the city hall between the board
of works committee and Mr. G. R. G.
Conway, of the 13. C. E. R. company,
with reference to the construction of
permanent track work on streets
about to be paved, the company was
requested to state Its decision to the
city authorities at an early date in
order that the work might not be delayed.
The question of the company's lia
bllity to pay for the pavement work
adjoining the tracks was discussed
thoroughly, and, aa the representative
of the B. C. E. R. appeared to be
doubtful as to whether the company
should pay for the pavement or not.
a copy of the minutes of a previous
council meeting was produced wherein it was shown that Mr. F. R. Glover,
executive agent of the B. C. E. R.,
had promised to pay for improvements eight Inches on each side of
the rails. Mr. Conway took a copy
of this, and promised to give the committee an answer as soon as possible
in order that the street work might
not be unnecessarily delayed.
Another matter which was taken up
with the railway company was the
question of operating a more modern
type of electric tram on city street-
than those now in use. Alderman
Curtis brought this matter to the attention of the council at the meeting
on Monday last and at that time Act-
Ing Mavor Cray was delegated to confer with Manager Purvis of the company.
His worship states that he has the
assurance of Mr. Purvis that steel
wheels, similar to those In use on interurban trams, will shortly be installed on city cars, in place of the
old fashioned flat wheels, thereby
obviating much noise.

WESTMINSTER MEN
IN BIG LAND DEAL
Model  Farm of GOO Acres Near Arm
strong Changes Hands���Subdivide
for Settlement.
Calgary, Aug.  It.���The police seem
to be completely baffled iu their chase
for   "Shorty"    Lyons,    murderer   of
IJrakaman Hiair, who was reported to
be hiding along the Bow river, practically in the centre of the city. The
latest  report   is   that   the   murderer
was  seen  swimming  the  river   from
Prince's Island to the north bank, and
ia later said  to have been seen hid-1
ing In the bushes in that vicinity. The
thickets in which he was supposed to
be hidden  was surrounded all  night
by SO armed men, but when daylight
carae tliere was nobody to be found.
Harold   Law-son,  a  pal   of  Lyons.
gave some of his history at the   inquest at Banff.   He asserted that both
Lyons and himself served in the 18th
Mounted  Rifles at  Sewell camp   recently, and after that they beat their
way west In a leisurely manner.
Lyons, he says, was an ugly man
when he had been drinking, and he
had spent most of his time in Calgary
in the bars before they took the ride
which ended in the death of the
brakeman. Lyons had often told the
witness that he would uever be taken
alive if he committed any serious
crime. He told the witness that he
had once shot at a man in the Brandon yards. The revolvers, the witness
asserts, were bought by Lyons and
himself in a second-hand store in
Brandon.
One cf the largest land deals tha;
has ever taken place in the Okanagan
valley was put through this week
when Westminster capitalists pur
chased what is known aa the Glen-
garrick dairy farm, comprising 600
acres, from Mr. Alex McQuarrie, of
Lansdowne, near Armstrong. The purchase price is said to be in the neigh-
hood of tjrj.ooo.
This farm is knov. n throughout the
interior as being a model one, and
ihe large herd of dairy cattle which
Mr. McQuarrie owns has been the
chief sourre cf mill; supply for | the
Northern Okjnugan during the past
few years. Mr. W. II. Keary and Mr.
D. E. MacKenzie engineered the deal
through, aud are said to be Interested
financially In the project.       ,- *.
It is understood thit the buyers In-
1 tend to subdivide the property into !
twenty acre farms, and the laud is of
auch a nature that it is thought it
will be but a short time before the
population around that part of the
country will be increased very materially.
MAY NOT EISH EOR
STURGEON WITH LINE
Crowds   Along   Wharves   Are   Told
Practice Is Contrary to the
Dominion Act.
Crowds of fishermen fqr the past
two or three wee��s have been casting
their lines over the waterfront In.Un
hope of landing a Sturgeon. These
desires, though hitherto frequently
gratified, received a rude jolt last
evening when an official of the Dominion fisheries department swooped
down upon the Isaac Waltons with the
information that they were violatin,.
the Dominion act, and must desist.
This fishing has formed a pleasant
pastime for tne plscatorially inclined,
and many of them have gone home
in the dark and peaceful hours of the
evening laden with a hearty meal. All
this is ended now.
According to oue of the fishermen,
who was politely ordered to quit last
evening, the official told him that fishing with a hook and line was permissible only to au Indian, and then only
for his own use.
Last year the act read that an Indian could fish with a hook and line
and sell the fish to outsiders, but the
fear of the fish becoming extinct���at
any rate in the Fraser���caused an
amendment to the act.
Sturgeon fishing, according to this
same fisherman, may only be indulged
in by white men when a proper net
Is used. This, he explained, would
entail a cost of $150 and together
with a Dominion license and boat,
means an outlay of nearly $200. Opinion among the wharf fishers ls that
they are being deprived of their evening's sport.

Rev. W. VV. Abbott and Rev. C
Brown Exchange Pastorates.
Rev. W. W. Abbott, of Saskatoon,
will succeed Kev. C. W. Brown as
pastor of the Queens Avenue church,
nev. C. W, Brown preached his last
sermon in the church last Sunday,
and will leave the city in ten days'
time for Saskatoon, where he will
have Charge of the pastorate vacated
by Mr. Abbott to come to Westminster.
Rev. Mr. Abbott will arrive in the
city during the first week of September, aud  will take up his duties  In
connection   with   the   church   ou   the
first Sunday cf that month,
i    During the    Interval    between   the
leaving of Rev. Mr. Brown, and the
arrival of the new minister, the services at the church will bo in charge
of Rev. A. E. Heatherington, who will
take    tomorrow    morning's    service.
"Cosmopolitan" Sampson, the evangelist, will preach in the evening.    Mr.
Heatherington's theme will  be "The
Religion of the Second Mile."
Although the referee question wan
not definitely settled last evening, ac
cording to Manager Cray, the off.oiaL
of today's game will be Sid Sykes and
either George Tuck or Sandy Cowan.
Just whether a fine or suspension was
handed down to Lalonde for his attack
on Hughie Gifford lir the previous
game is not known.
All roads will lead to Queen's Park
this afternoon, when the Salmon Bellies and the Minto Cup holders will
again battle for supremacy.   As pre-1
dieted, there will be two cliaagoj i..
the Vancouver lineup, George Mathe-'
son    and    McGregor will watch    the j
game f.-m the side lines, their places
being taken by Dot Phelan and Ernie
Murray.
The latter played a stellar game at
the early part of the season and it
has always been a surprise to the
Westminster fans that he was not
kept on the home. McGregor might
have the speed, but the past three
games has shown him to be woefully
weak when in front of goal, hence the
change.
As for the Salmon Bellies, it is very
doubtful if Manager Gray will make
any changes from last Saturday's lineup. Both the defence and the home
played a brand of lacrosse that even
the most rabid Vancouver fan had to
admit was second to none.
With Pat Feeney in centre it dees
not seem likely that his opponent
will get many changes to secure the
ball on the draw, and the strength of
this was very apparent in the last
game. Pat played a heady game. He
is not so fast as he used to be. but
for all that, when it comes to feeding
the home, and helping out on the defence the diminutive Salmon Bc-ily is
right tliere with the goods.
It is very, probable   that   Manager
Con Jones wiil be back on the coast
this morning,  and  this  should  instill
a  little  more  confidence   in  his
horts.    Although  he admits that   hlsj
team has little chance of retaining the/
cup.    The fans can rest assured that/
where there fs a  slight ray of hope.
Con will be there with bells.  The silverware means a lot to both the players and the matia��e:uer,(��� and to anyone who has followed the ex-Australian, it is well understood that Mister
Jones will be there.
Vancouver's lineup will be as follows: Goal, Hess; point, Griffith;
coverpolnt, Cameron: first defence.
Cumming, Becond defence. Ion; third
dfence, Godfrey, centre, West; third
home, Murray; second home, Carter;
first home, Phelan; outside home, McDougall; inside home, Lalonde.

Bovine Pays
Furniture Store'.
Not the proverbial bull In a china
shop, but a cow in a furniture store
is a brief description of a somewhat
unusual situation that presented itself In the Fales' furniture house on
Agnes stre*c yesterday about noon
when a mild-eyed, untagged bovine
paid a visit.
How it came there or where It
came from Is not known, but that it
had arrived was a certainty. Coming
in through the entrance of this store
the animal meandered down between
the piles of furniture until bringing
up In front of a large looking glas3
it became alarmed at its own likeness
and announced is presence in a
rather boisterous cow manner to the
owner ef the ship and his employees.
Mr. Fales ;-ad tho animal removed
to a barn where it presented him with
a pailful ot rich fresh milk as a reward for his trouble
Towards evening tl owners of the
cow caine along in the persons of a
party of tall H'ndns, and the Incident ended happily.

The city council met last evening
instead of on Monday next, and a
considerable amount of business waa
transacted during the short session.
Enclosing a protest received from
residents in the western portion of
Westminster who were dissatisfied
with the present means employed by
the city in disposing of garbage, Mr.
W. Bapty, secretary of the provincial
board of health, communicated with
the city council last evening, recommending the installation of an incinerator plant, as a solution to the difficulty.
The residents complained that very
often the odors arising from deceased
cattle and horses lying at the scow
slip at the foot of Thirteenth street
were sometimes very offensive and.
in their opinion, uot conducive to the
public health.
Alderman Dodd, in moving that tbe
matter be referred to tHe health committee, said that when the system of
garbage disposition now in use had
been adopted, the city had been assured by experts that the conditions
would not be in the least offensive to
residents even at a very short distance. ���
As to the proposal for establishing;
an incinerator plant lt was a rather
costly proposal to consider at the
present time, and he did not think
that the secretary cf the provincial
board cf health quite understood the-
co- j state of affairs.
Regina C.rcet Pavtnr*.
The assessment  commissioner    re-
of hope / P��rt,!A  that he had  Investigated  the
standing of individuals  whose signatures had appeared recently on a petition against the proposed*.paving   on
R'eglim street.    ���**��� --"-���-	
He had found that the petition waa
subscribed to by over 50 per cent, of
the property owneTs, but that owing
to the withdrawal of some of the
names he would advise that the petition be referred to the city solicitors:
Alderman Kellington made thia a motion observing that there were alsa
several irregularities in the petition
which should be investigated before
anything final was done.
More   Petitions.
A petiCon against the proposed improvements on Nanaimo sireet between Tenth and Twelfth streets was
referred to the board of works committee which* already has another

Suggestions and Chow*.
The rather voluminous epistle received from Mr, G. W.- Beach, of th��
Westminster Mill company, contained
so many valdable suggestions for improvements in the city and on tbe
river, that Alderman Kellington moved that it be handed over to the publicity committee. This motion waa
lost, however, and the letter was received and filed instead.

MARKET
REPORT
Yesterday was a fairly gocd day at
the local market though there are
still a good many of the farmers and
ranchers unable to attend on account
of the haying operations not being
completed. Buyers were numerous
and dealers in all lines of goods found
business well up to the average.
Large quantities of Yellow Transparent apples were recived, and these
along with a lesser number of boxes
of Duchess and Red Astrikan brands
found a ready sale at prices ranging
from $1.00 to $1.50 per crate. Choice
boxes brought as much as $2.75. The
maiority of the stocks came from
Chilliwack and Ladner districts
though there were, also a few local
grown cases on hand.
In the vegetable stalls, cabbage was
in large supply with a demand for
crated stock only. The sacks found
few purchasers. Turnips were little
wanted while beets .rn the contrary
met a ready sale. Carrots were more
plentiful and dropped 25 cents in the
wholesale price. The regular season
for most garden products is fast approaching, and it ia expected that the
ruling prices for beets, turnips and
carrots will gradually fall as supplies
increase in volume.
Eggs were up again, but the advance was nothing more than could be
expected at this time of the year. In
previous years eggs have always gone
up at this time, and they will continue
to advance until mid-winter isjeached
when a falling oft' will occur until
Easter.
Dairy butter, what there was of it,
brought a good price and was cleared
off the market early.
The showing of summer flowers
was good, and the florists had no difficulty in getting rid of their goods.
The majority of the meat stalls
wero closed on account of the warm
weather, but those butchers who were
on hand seemed to find trade fairly
game from the side lines, their places
were equal to the demand.
There was an unusually heavy buying of hens right from the opening
of the mart, and though arrivals were
mere generous than usual, the dealera
got rid of all their stocks at the ruling figure of last week. Chickens
were cleared   off   the   market    early.
Broilers also appeared to be wanted
by many people, but merchants held
out for higher prices with the result
that at the close of the market they
had to let their birds go at a lesser
flgure than had been offered earlier
in the day or cart them home again.
There was a large number of ducks
on hand, but all were Bold.
Small fruits were scarce. There
wer-9 a few crates of blackberries in
the stalls which were grabbed up at
prices ranging from $2.00 to $2.25
wholesale. The season for raspberries
is practically over, and only one or
two boxes selling at 10c each retail,
were put up for sale.
The market square presented a lively and animated scene early in the
d'.��v when there was a large number
of horses put up for auction. Judging
from the amount of bidding going on
and the interest taken in the operations of the auctioneers business appeared to be pretty brisk.

Senate Further Amends the    Panama
Canal   Bill���More   Concessions
to U. S. Ships.
Washington, Aug. 9.���The extent to
which the Canadian Pacific Railway
might control traffic through the Panama Canal gave the Senate occasion
for much debate tohen the anti-railroad section of the Canal Bill was
reached yesterday.
Little objection developed to the
proposed plan to prohibit railroad-
owned ships from engaging In American coastwise trade through the canal.
The plan adopted by the Senate
committee, however, of attempting to
restrict the operation of foreign-owned railroad ships caused the difference of opinion.
Agreement was reached by the senate late tonight to take a final vote on
the Panama Canal Administration Bill
and all amendments to it not later
than 5 o'clock tomorrow.
Further important concessions to
American shipping were made by the
senate today through amendments to
the canal bill. The free toll provision
to the American coastwise ships, endorsed by the senate last night, was
supplemented by a qualified free toll
provision for American vessels engaged in the foreign trade.
A still more important amendment
adopted by the senate holds out practically an invitation to foreign built
ships owned by Americans to hoist
the American flag and register as American vessels. This amendment, of
fered by Senator Williams and adopt
ed by a large vote, would authorize
American owners of foreign-built
ships, now compelled to sail under
foreign flags, to bring their vessels
under American registry, provided
thev engaged only in foreign trade.
The senate worked last night on the
railroad control feature of the Pan
ama bill. Senator Bristow opposed
the plan of railroad controlled vessel;
suggested by the senate committee
and urged tlie adoption of the plan
passed by the house, which would glvi
the Interstate Commerce Commission
jurisdiction.
One important restriction was
placed upon the Williams free ship
amendment adopted today. This provided that no foreign built ship admitted to American registry should
be allowed to participate in mail carrying contracts, unless it was constructed with particular reference to
speedy and economical conversion into an auxilary naval cruiser.
A similar restriction was made upon ,
the    granting of the free toll    privileges to American vessels engaged iv |
foreign trade.    The provision adopted
by the senate specified that owners of
vessels engaged in foreign trade must.j
agree to sell tlieir ships to the United
States in time of war or other emer- j
gencles  In  order  to  be  exempt  from i
the    payment of tolls  when    passing
through the cnnal.
The subject of railroad-controlled
flhlt>�� brought out a defence ot tho
hoime bill by Senators Clupp, Polndex-
ter and others. Chairman t'lapp of the
Interstate Commerce Commission,
said some regulation must be enacied
to separate definitely the railroids
and the steamship lines. The suggestion that the Canadian Pacific nil
way might be able to operate its ships
through the canal, while American
railway-owned ships would be prohibited, had betn brought up. he said, for
the purpose of clouding the real Issue.
Senator I.lppitt. of Rhode Island
said that co-onoratlon between railroads and steamships had benefitted
New England, and that tlie people of
his state did not join ln the general
denunciation of the railroad lines and
their steamer connections. He denied chare-en that had been made that
the New Vork, New Haven and Hartford railway controlled all the Long
Island Sound steamer lines. A great
portion of these freight-carrying
steamers, he said, were Independent
of the control of that railway.
It will not be necessary for Secretary Knor to advise the British Government of tho action taken by congress In exempting vessels from nay.
ing tolls on the Panama Canal unless
Great Britain chooses to make specific inquiry on that point. It is scarcely expected that it will do so, satisfying itself by taking notice of the
proceedings in congress, as was done
at an earl'er stage of the legislation.
Although there has been no formal
statement < f the views of the administration ln regard to the matter of toll"
for American shipping since the pending Canal BUI was reported from the
House PprnmltteB. It may safely be Inferred that tliere has been no change
In their position since In public
speeches President Taft and Secretary BttHr*0ri both asserted the rlg'it
of the United States to remit the tolls
or grant rebntes to American ships.
Students of the situation point out
that Gr��at Britain could reduce the
tolls of the Sues Canal to a point that
would divert to the Suez a great share
of the prospective business of the
Panama C:inal and c-uiso considerable
financial loss to the Panama Canal.

1 July 27. 1887, and have received num-
| erous    congratulations     from      their
I many friends.    Mr. and Mrs. Thomas
j R. Pearson, who were married on the
same day, cabled their congratulations
to Mr. and Mrs. Johnson from   London, England:
London, Aug. 9.���The conferences
with the Canadian ministers on the
naval question nave practically concluded. It Is probable that, by wisii
of the British Government, an invitation will be extended by Mr. Borden
to Sir Wilfrid Laurier to meet Mr.
Winston Churchill, first lord of the admiralty, in Canada at the end of September to discuss the matter involved.
There ls no doubt here that the exis
tence of an emergency has been proved and that Canada will make a contribution of an amount to be determined after Mr. Borden consults his
colleagues, after which Mr. Churchill
will go to Canada. A permanent naval
policy will be determined upon, lf possible, at a round table conference of
all political parties in Canada. The
British desire is to remove the
scheme from the sphere of party politics as has beeu done in Great Britain.
Mr.Churchill will arrive in Canada
with Admiral Prince Louis of Batten-
burg, and an Imposing naval squadron.
Mr. Churchill and Mr. Hamar
Greenwood, M. P., will make a tour
of tbe principal cities of Canada and
discuss imperial defence. The ministerial opposition here to Mr. Churchill's tour Is due to an unwillingness to
influence Canadian opinion, but the
Unionists urge prompt action and Mr.
Churchill is willing.
Prominent government and opposition members say Australia ls becoming popular with British investors owing to its naval contribution. It is
strongly felt that Canada must show
practical loyalty and remain a part
of the empire to keep the confidence
of Great Britain financially. It is authoritatively stated that Mr. Borden
has promised nothing definite In regard to the navy.
As to the references to Imperial copartnership, the best minds here urge
that all should go slow. It is only
proposed now that there should be a
Canadian minister in London for a
part of the year for the exchange of
confidential information on foreign
policy. The union should be consul-
tive. British ministers see the danger
of a rigid compact binding the dominions' action iu any Imperial council.
Mr. Asquith declined Mr. Borden'.?
invitation and Mr. Churchill's visit is
not intended to stampede Canada but
to return the compliment of the Canadian cabinet.
The French Government lields that
it can not allow Great Britain to share
in a penny postage scheme, and therefore, such an arrangement with Canada cannot materialize.

I have a way of doing business that my friends tell me doesn't
make enough money. I believe differently. I depend upon a
whole lot of sales at a small profit, rather than a few with large
profits. In other words, I give you more for your money than
anyone else will.   Read the rest of this and see how I do business.
The first piece of property I have to sell is Cumberland Park,
out on Burnaby Lake. It's not very large, only one hundred ar.d
twenty lots.
First I am clearing it, so you can live there right now, and
start a garden if you want to.
_ Then I contracted for a store building, with living rooms upstairs, to cost $1500 to build, and also for nineteen bungalows
that are costing me from $400 up to $750 to build. Two of the
houses stand cn $900 lots, the others are on $500 lots.
That leaves one hundred vacant lots, and as the Burnaby
Lake tram line runs right through the property, from one corner
down to the other, I had to make the lots different sizes. Some
of them are 33 foot frontage, others are as much as 140 foot
front. These lots are worth from $500 to $1150 each. I am selling all these lots, those with the houses included, for $500 each.
Here is the way it works out. There are 44 lots worth from $550
to $1150 each. There are twenty buildings, together with the lots
they are built on, worth from $900 to $2000. I will sell you a lot
for $500. When the 120 pieces are sold, this, of course, includes
those with the buildings, you will meet in my office and decide
with the others, just how you want the prizes distributed. That's
the way I do business. I won't have any blanks where there is a
chance for you to lose a cent. I haven't put a lot in that is worth
less than the full amount you pay for it, $500. I am going to give
yOU easy terms On this tOO,  $50.00 down and $15.00 a month.
Now wouldn't you lil e to have a home on B|urnaby Lake. It's
the only fresh water lake in Greater Vancouver. I tell you it's
going to be fine out there., The engineers are working on plans
now to put a Boulevard around it, and beautify it in many ways.
You can really live there. You can have a garden and raise your
own fresh vegetables. You can have a boat on the lake. Ther's
some fishing too.
Now I have told you about this as plainly as I know how. You
can see for yourself that you have better than one chance in two
of getting more than your money's worth, and you might get the
$1900 piece; someone will. Come in and see about this right away.
They won't last very long. I can't say any more, it's up to you
now.   I have given you the chance.

SENIOR AMATEURS
DEFEAT FAIRVIEW
Storme boes Good Work���Game Was
Clean,-But Not Too Lively���
Score 4-2.
The Fairviews never had a look ln
last evening when they matched with
the Westminster Senior Amateurs, the
final score being 4-2.
It was not a game, however, that
anyone got excited about, and, expect
for occasional dashes on the part of
the two' homes, the play was of a listless character. The Royals had the
better of the contest throughout, and
but fer faulty work on the part of
their homes in getting the pass the
score would have been much heavier.
The players showed a tendency to
bunch in front of their opponents'
goal, and time and time again brought
the rubber within scoring distance
only to lose it in tlie m!x-up.
The one feature of the game was
the absence of rough play, not a man
of either side getting tagged by the
officials.
Fred Hume opened the scoring for
the Royal3 after seven minutes of
play, by taking the pass from Smith,
the Fast Burnaby player. Westminster still attacked, but lost the ball
and Cotton made a good intercept.
Storme picked up the play and went
through for tally No. 2.
From the face-off' in the second
Quarter, Campbell, of tbj; visitors,
went right through by himself and >
scored. End to end play followed until just before the bell rang when
Stoi me sent his side further ahead.
'l'he same player was right there in
the third period, beating the goal-
tender fcr the fourth time. Both teams
fielded eleven men on account cf the
visitors being one man short.
The game was started late owing
to tlie tardy arrival of the Vancouver
outfit, and the quarters were limited
to 1'*!'-.* minutes each.
The teams fielded as follows:
New Westminster���Stoddard, goal;
Patchell, point; Cotton, cover point;

Comment
on Sport
The expected has happened. From
statements made by practically every
j-jnan of ths Canadian Olymplc-^eam,
which has returned from Stockholm,
the people of Canada, who pride themselves in supporting the amateur
game, now have an opportunity cf
judging for themselves whether the
Amateur Athletic Union of Canada is
being ruu on a satisfactory basis or
not.
The storm has been brewing ,for a
long time, but somehow nothing, '/appeared to give it an extra Shove which
would form a nucleus for an investigation. This extra shove has been
made bv Frank Lukeman, who coihes
out witu a bold statement, backed by
his fellow teammates, that Messrs. J.
G. Merrick, H. H. Crow (president and
secretary respectively), and Coach
Walter Knox, were entirely incompetent to manage the affaire of the Canadian team at the recent Olympic
games.
To anyone well versed in the methods UBed by this body, these charges
have caused but little surprise. They
have fanned the flames which have
been smouldering for the past two or
three years, and any person who de
lights in supporting amateur sport ir
Canada, will heartily agree with thi
suggestion that a proper system ot
house-cleaning should at once be
started in the A. A. U. What coun
try bas ever heard of its trainer as
saulting one of the rubbers, and alsc
threatening one of the marathon runners until the latter squared off, and
made Knox back down? \
The Canadian team had ample
funds to work upon but the small successes are not to be wondered at
when these little sidelights are being
brought vividly before the public.
The charge against the American
team being a near approach to professionals, has nothing on the condition
that exists in ('anada today among
the various amateur bodies. British
Columbia is in no wise better off thar
her sister provinces, and tlie brand
body of the B. C. A. A. IT. located herr
in New Westminster cannot pat itself
on the back and imagine it is immune
from criticism.
There are things happening in thf
sporting world here In this city which
If investigated in nti impartial manner, would disclose a curious state of
alTairs.
Here is one instance. A man who
has always been interested in amateur athletics, accepts the position to
referee in the Minto Cup games, and
of course, gets paid for it. The B. C.
���\. A. U. class him now as a professional just because he accepts money
to officiate In professional games.

WESTMINSTER TO
HAVE RUGBY TEAM
Enthusiasts Gather and Appoint Delegates to Vancouver���Meet Again
Wednesday.
If the spirit of optimism which prevailed at last evening's meeting of
football enthusiasts, is followed up by
action.   New   Westminster   will   soon
' boast a rugby team.
It is now several years since the
Royal   City  fielded  a  rugger  flfteen,
, and there are hundreds of residents
���who well remember the days when
they Just about cleaned up everything
in this line operating on the coast.
Now a real revival appears to have
taken place, and with the galaxy of
players that have come forward and
signified  their  Intention  to  make up
i the team, there seems no reason why
the new organization should not follow In the footsteps of Its predecessors and take a fall out of the Vancouver und Victoria fifteens.
'!"���<> meeting was held in the office
of Sherriff, Rose & Co., with Mr. T.
1). Sherriff In the chair, assisted by
Mr. "Bob" Edmonds, acting secretary.
Tbe former, with Mr. Tim Mahoney,
will attend the league meeting to be
),ri.i in Vancouver on Monday night
next, and wlll probably enter the team
in  *i>"  league.
Another gathering Is scheduled for
Wednesday night of next week, and lt
Is particularly requested that anyone who has played the game or Is
int9rested enough to try out for the

Mr. T. D. Sherriff or to Mr. Edmonds.

'et the amateur bodies affiliated witb

Cost  of  Living to  Be  Reduced.
There is still a chance that the
high cost of living will be reduced.
Dr. Wilfrid Grenfell of the I.a~radcr
Mission tells of the latent resources
of Labrador about linw the reduction
can be brought nbout liy merely
changing the dinner course irom beefsteak  lo reindeer.
At   present   *-n   little   attention   is
jlh'.A  to  tbe   conservation   i f   animal
life in the northern country and reindeers are left, to l.e exploited and diminished.    The reindeer development
is   in   its   infancy,   hut   despite   tlifs
fact,  the   herds   number   30,000.   and
I with regular breeding it is likely lliat
I'iO.OOO lawns will lie addc.' thli season.
I     "Here  is  an  i pportunity   (nr  large
I investment ot   private   capital,  wbich
would be a protttable money making
proposition," says Dr. Grenfell. "The
meat nf the reindeer could be made
to add much to the world's supply at
a low  cost,  llie  animal's  miik  culd
be exported, and the skins could be
made an important factor in the Iur
n...rket.    The skin could also lie tanned,  creating  another  industry,  snd
used (or the msking of gloves.   Three
or   four   millions   of   deer   could   be
maintained within the bounds ol Labrador."

The   Champion   Walker.
George (ioulding ls an Engllshmar
'iy blrtb, but has been a Canadian for
i gord many years, and hls athletic
laurels are entwined with the Maple
Leaf. It was In Canada tbnt he learned to be the greatest walker in the
'vorld, the fastest walker at hi a distances who ever lived. Originally he'
was a runner, but turned to walking,
ind almost from the first showed phe-
imiernl aptitude for the sport. Besides being a great athlete, he Is i>
modest man, a good sportsman, a clt
Izen to be proud of. The sport lr
which Couldlng excels is not so gue
tacular as many others, but It Is prrb
ihl�� thnt a man who never snw a rae
of any kind would be more arently n��
tnnished to see Georgo Colliding wai1'
than to see Jackson mn.
The champion walker walks fast��>-
t.han tbe average man can run. in?
movos ns gracefully as n trott'ir
horse. Everv muscle in his body,
even to hls flnger tips, seems as If
'mined to heln hlm forward, and
'lothlng more frlctlonless than his
ityle of walking can be Imagined. It
's as pretty as skirt dancing. Too
often the records of noted walkers
have been marred by the suspicion or
the charge that they did not walk
'Vrly. that their gait wss an approach
to a run. A tricky walker can often
deceive the keenest Judge by develop-
<ng a hitching gait  that   is really a
run.
Never in Oouldlng's career haa It
been suggested that his walking ie

might without undue labor be prepar- j
ed in the house, there is an increasing demand for the factory product
even in the districts where the material is most abundant. . ���'
Some fruit dealers who have had
the business of supplying to house- :
holds large quantities of fruit for pre
serving are authority for the statement that the demand for fruit to "do
up" is rapidly diminishing. The cans;
must be the adoption of a more hand-
to-mouth policy of supplying the table,
cr a disinclination at bome tb perform
the labor incidental to preserving. It
is not that the factory product is mere
desirable or cheaper, ln fact, the cost
is considerably higher.
The newer generation of housekeepers is rapidly progressing toward a
state of most complete dependence on
the food-making concerns, and in
yielding tbem the profits on their investments, the price of the labor and
material, it is, in effect, paying out a
large share of the housekeeping expenses for freedom from toil such as
our mothers did not evade. While
this is not necessarily to be condemned, it shows how part ofthe Increased cost of living Is to be accounted
for.���Toronto Mail and Empire.

when the firs', settlers came, and
large farm* or ranches were taken
up. Many oi tliese have lieen cultivated and have yielded bountifully.
On others���many others���only a few
acres bave been cleared. They stand,
for the ma.4 part, as they stood a
century ago. Meanwhile the province
hai developed with wonderful rapidity. The price of land lias increased
(ive or ten fold. The ranches are
too valuable to lie allowed to stand
fallow or to be covered with alder-
brush. Tbey would pay richly if tliey
could be cultivated, as some ci them
have been paying richly for years.
But cultivation requires labor, and
labor, even the Oriental variety, u
scarce and high. Many of the fartiM.
cleared and uncleared, have therefore found their way into the liand-
of the suh.livider. and more at*, following every  week.
The change winch this new nrder

OBJECT  TO   PRINCIPLE
Of Amending Constitution���Author of
Lancaster Bill in Ottawa.
Ottawa, Ont., August 9.���Mr. E. A.
Lancaster, member for Lincoln
and father of the proposed Marriage Law declared unconstitutional
by the Privy Council, was here yesterday and saw several of the Cabinet
ministers on departmental business.
"1 have sent for the full text of the
judgment," Tie said, "and until I receive it I have no comment to make."
In view of the measure of agitation
and dispute over the result of the finding, lt Ib highly probable that a resolution on the subject will be Introduced in the coining session of parliament.
A proposal to amend the British
North America Act, as has been suggested considerably, may be expected to meet with opposition, not only
from those opposed to the Lancaster
Bill, but also from some who support
lt, but objected to the principle of
amending the constitution. Several
members of parliament who have
been in Ottawa since the Privy Council judgment was delivered have expressed themselves along that line.

Congress of  Reform.
Pacific Grove, Cal., Aug. 9.���Declaring that the influx of Japanese and
the increase in land holdings of Orientals constituted a menace to the country-. Rev. J. E. Hoeick urged the passage of rigid exclusion laws before the
Congress of Reform, in session here
under the auspicies cf the State Women's Christian Temperance Union.
Rev. Hoeick said the welfare of
California and the prosperity which it
might hope to reap from the Panama
Canal was seriously threatened by the
incoming of undesirable aliens.

UNCLAIMED  WEALTH
Nearly $700 000 Lies Waiting Claimants in Canadian Banks.
Ottawa, August 9.���Unclaimed balances to the amount of $676,147, unpaid dividends of X3,6".'.�� and unpaid
drafts or bills of exchange totalling
$40,851 were in Canadian banks a' the
end of the last fiscal ear, according
to a statement issued today. The
unclaimed balance increased by $33.
000 during the year and the unpaid
drafts by $10,000.
The Montreal Cltv ard District
Bank heads the list with $127,071. the
Hank ot Montreal is second with $119.-
000 unclaimed money. The nank of
British Nortb America has $93,000 of
such funds. The Bank ot Commerce,
$18,000; Bank    ot   Hamilton,  $52,000;
I Union Bank. $41,000.   The rest of the
! amounts are scattered among all the
banks.
1 lt ls Just a question as to whether
these balances may not be made to
revert to the custody of the government. This course was strongly suggested two sessions ago In the commons committee on banking and commerce and quite possibly may be dealt
with when the bank act ls revised
next winter.
At present the banks have use of
the money and In many cases it is extremely doubtful    If a claimant   will
