application was made before Justice
Murphy in the supreme court.
Bail was fixed at $16,000, and Mc
Naughton will stand trial at the next

t Is believed to be the flrst case
on record where a man charged with
murder, to say nothing of confessing

Inding of  public  money from  th*
Repayer-i. ��
"TUoy liave a perfect right to know
��nat Is going on around here, what
<*loney Is being spent and what la
proposed to be spent" he said.
In suite of this the motion by Mr
Mnisflcld riffjM(
u Worklhg Hardship,
.  Mr. i-,ill called attention i<) the in
justice cf the nflV,   blasting    bylaw.
"It Is working il hahtshlp on actual
settlers" he said. "If they want to
clear a small portion of their land,
want to blast out a single stump or
-rock, they must perforce apply to the
engineer for a per;��t for which a
fe<i of $2.60 Is charged. This la. one
of tho most foolish propositions 1
ever heard of. The provincial gqv-
ernmrnt is providing free powder for
settlers, and here In Burnaby we may
not use lt without going to this expense. The settlers are fined for
clearing their land without a permit
while improvements to the same land
���re not subjocted to a tax. The peo
pie who are settling on the land)
have the legitimate right to clear
tlieir land and no act or by-law
Should hinder them in any way.
"The llrst thing we know of," he
continued, "we shall be charged tor
cutting down trees, for you all know
that accidents In this work occasionally happen. I venture to state that
the people who enacted this by-law
would faint if they had to handle,
any powder."
Action was taken by the appointing
of a committee which will wait on the
council and ask for this by-law to be
amended.
Abolish the Wards.
Pres'dent B. fi. Walker brought up
once asnln the abolition of the ward
system, a theme which was prominent
���before tho larft election took place
and In favor of whloh nearly all the
councillors went on record. .
Mr. Walker snld thftt the nneple
had voted fnvorably on the plebiscite
submitted In January last, and he
thought the tlmo ripe for the councll
to* act upon It.
Mr. MacPherson took preoption to
these remarks, stating that he at
first favored the move. but. after giving the matter much thought, he was
of the opinion thnt capable persons
from each ward were to be found.
The speaker quoted Commissioner
Crehan, who Is now making an investigation In South Vsncouver, ln
tbst Mr. Crehan had aWed thst there
were not enough wards ln South Vancouver.
"If South Vancouver," asked Mr.
MacPherson, "has not enough wards,
then surely Burnabv with a larger
arra bas not enough."
The matter will he brought to the
attention of the council b��   a   letter
from the secretary ot the board.
Favor Flower Show.
The proposed annual flower show
In Burnaby was also discussed and
endorsed. A meeting will be held next
Wednesday at'the municipal hall} to
form strong committees for the project. Mr. MacPherson led the wav h"
promising anywhere from *2t)0 to $50"
towards the sohefne, and thought that
with the sunnort promised from Vancouver and New Westminster success
should be achipvd.

The official government map of the
city, for which surveys were made by
Messrs. Cleveland and Cameron about
a /ear ago, tma put on issue for thi
I first time since its completion at the

tte city, and it is tbe only one ever
made for any city In the province
under the provincial resurveys act of
18J9 and amendments. It has been
thoroughly examined by tbe provincial
government and bas received the Attorney General's sign, seal and approval.
Begun Two Years Ago.
The work on tbe map was origin

It had to be drawn up, put through
the Provincial government's hands,
printed and published.
According to the map the city covers an area of six and a quarter
square miles and has r.lnety-eighl
miles cf open streets." Twenty per
cent of uli the streets registered in
the plan are closed. The height above
sea level In the city varies from nothing to 298 feet ��t the tyghe.it point,

namely, Twentieth street on the we3t;
Tenth avenue ou the north; Brunette

practically five miles in all from the
Brunette river to the western boundary of the city.

after his arrival at home he will not
be permitted to plunge Into the campaign again. Associates of Colonel
Roosevelt said he was showing nu
concern as to the possible effect of
his retirement from tho fleld of battle.

the prairie mother fears when the crop

The houses are usually placed with
more regard to the convenience of
working the farm than to the proximity of neighbors, and even in a fairly
well-settled district may be a mile nr
two apart. In such a case, the several
members of a family are greatly dependent on each other for all the comfort and brightness of life. Happily
this often results in extremely strong
family feeling, though the circumstances favor the development of
markedly different characteristics in
the different members. Generally
speaking, each child has room to grow
with little let or hindrance from tiie
pressure of other individualities, and,
being exposed to fewer distractions
than the youngsters of large towns
nnd cities, is possibly more likely to
discover iiis own particular talent in

Alike in east and west, work on a
farm has a tendency to come on with
a rush in certain seasons, and then it
must be a very small or a very stupid
child   who   cannot   contribute   some
help iu  the  eencral  stress.    At  such
times, even if not as a rule greatly
enamored of his small routine duties,
the  normal  child  is  keenlv  alive  t"
the dignity of labor, and will valiantly and with vast enjoyment play his
little part amon��st  the  m��n.    Everyone   who   has   lived   in   the   country
knows that such seasons of sires-* are
nf   pretty   frequent  occurrence.    Thus
the  boys  and  girls  pet  their  training
earlv. by what ore might call "short
courses," in the work oi men and women; and a good thing it is that they
do,   so   long    as    the    pressure  upon
them is not too heavy and continuous
It is prettv generally conceded that
the farm, with its pure air. it* simn'e,
wholesome food. and its spaciousness,
i< a fire place for children physically.
The advantages of its mental atmosphere are probably Quite as great for
the young mind which needs to be fed.
but niicrht not to be forced.   Country
sights  and  country sounds  give  the
most intelligent child ample food for
thought, whilst the country quiet affords him a chance to assimilate this
food.   He has time to think his own
thoughts and dream his own dreams
undisturbed by the rush and change
and  distractions  of  the city.    If  he
car��s for readme, or even as a child
loves to be read to, few books may be
available, but he will get at the hearts
or three he has.   Probably he will take
longer to develop and perhaps all his
life  will   remain  a  slower man  than
his city-bred cousin���slower in movement, in speech, in the readiness to
stake  great  things  on  a  new   idea���
I but on this continent at least we are
, in much more danger from overhast'-
1 than   from   undue   deliberation';   and
the  men   and  women  trained  on  the
farm   are   our   chief   hops   nl. esca'x-
from   the   wreck    of   our  civilisation
through nervous impatience and reck-
les- speedliilg to our goals of individual
ami national fortune.
The country-bred children (I do not
say onl.v the fanners' children) of the
last generation have given many a
leader to the present generation, and
at this moment the farms of east and
west alike are raising a crop of humanity of infinitely more promise and
value than any other croo whatsoever.
The pleasures of the farmer's children are generally simple and natural. Whether tliey have few toys or
many, they are never at a loss for
playthings, and there i.s always something happening on a farm to make
life interesting. It may be the making nf the Christmas pudding or the
preparing of some marvellous surprise
'<" "Daddy's birthday"; the arrival of
a new calf in the barn or the trial of
a recently-purchased Bteam plow; the
advent of a visitor or the coming of
the thresher and his "outfit." The
life may seem monotonous to grownup folk, but to the children its variety
is endless.
Kach district in the west���the open
prairies, the northerly woods and the
regions of wild mountains and valleya
���has its own story to te 1 of prolific
life, snd the oliild who lives close tc
nature oatchea man/ of her secrets.
LAUNCHING A VcSSEL.
The Crucial Moment Comes When She
Takes the Water.
That a launch is a matter of mathematics, as well as o! great skill and
iabor, is shown by the fact that the
man of science wlio has the matter in
charge always makes a set of calculations showing the strain of the ship
and its precise condition at practically every tout of the journey down yie
ways.
If a boat should get in the way or
if it shouid tuke an unusual length
of time to knock out the keel blocks,
or if any one of half a dozen things
should cause serious delay, the scientific man knows just how long he can
wait and just how far the limit of
safety extends.
There is always one supreme mo-
ment in a launch and it is at a time
that escapes the average spectator.
It is when the vessel g^.i fairly well
in* > the water. This is when an important factor known as the "moment of buoyancy" conies into play.
If you can imagine a vessel sliding
down an inclii.e without any water
into whicii to drop you can see that
the vessel would tip down suddenly
at the end wliich has left the ways
and would rise at the end still on the
incline. But really in successful
launches the stern of the vessel is
gradually lifted up by the water, and
this throws the weight forward on that
part of the ship still resting on the
ways. The force of the water is called
the "moment of buoyancy," and the
natural tendency of the ship to drop
to the bottom of the stream is celled
the "moment of weight."
Now, the moment of buoyancy
must always ht greater than the moment of weigl.t, but it mu-t not be
very much greater, for if it were it
would throw too much weight forward
on the part of tlie ship still on the
ways and might break them down or
injur-3 the plates or keel. When the
English battleship Ramiliies was
launched this did really happen, and
so great was the strain near the bow
that parts of the cradle were actually
pushed right into the bottom of the
vessel.
It is this danger of disaster thnt
causes the scientific launcher to make
the most careful calculations as to
the condition.) surrounding the ship
at every foot of her journey into tlie
vater.
When Evey Sailor Wore a Queue.
The sailors' broad collars were devised so that tlie powd-sr or tar on the
wearer's queues should  not come ofl
on the blouse.   In tlie old days every
sailor wore his hair in a qu��ue and
either   had   the   queue   powdered   or
held  together  by  tar.   This was not
good  for the blouse  or jacket underneath.   80   detachable   broa.l   collars
were added.   Sailors stopped wearing
queues a century azo.    But they stii.
wear   the   wide   collar.     When   {.Ord
Nelson died the British navy went in
to   mourning   for   him.     Sailors   pu'
broad black ribbor.j on their caps and
black ribbons on their blouses.   Anc.
the ribbons  remain  to this day. not
only on the ur.i orins of British sailors,
but on those of other navies as well
The broad "b?ll shaped" ends of sail
ors' trouser legs were thus shape.! sr
that   the   wearer   might   more  easily
turn his trousers up above liis knee-
when lie had to swab the decks. Dec!
swabbing was a  hateful  and suppofl
edly degrading task.    Hence the sail
ors calle I their enemies "swabs" as a
term  of contempt.
The  Greatest Sin-er.
Pr bably the most remarkable sir-gei
of ail time was Karinelli, the beaut}
of  whose soprano  voice  remains  un
equalled.     It   was  of   lanre  compass
three  and  a  half  octaves,  exceedim
the   ordinary  range   by   six  er sevei
notes.    His   debut   at   seventeen   a'
Rome in  1722  was extraordiary  fron
his competing with a trumpet plays
in sustaining and  swelling a note ������
astonishing   length   and   power.    Foi
fifteen years he traveled extensively
anl ha reached P.iain in 1737, Intend-
ing to stay a few months, but remain
ing  twenty-five  years.     Philip  V.   o.
Spain had fallen into a profound mc
Iancholy, and the queen found Farin
elli's voice the only remedy.
Punishments That Are Meted Out to
British Sailors.
For Infraction of regulations some
curious punishments are meted out in
tbe English navy. It ls an every day
occurrence, says the London Tit-Bits,
to see half a dozen sailors lined up on
deck facing tbe paint work, holding
tbeir hammocks on tbeir shoulders. At
first tbe hammock laa't heavy, but after au bour or so It drags on one's
shoulders like lend. Besides, it Is not
at all entertaining to stare fixedly at a
square foot of painted woodwork for
an bour or more at a time.
Another punishment tbat Jack despises Is balling wltb s spoon. Be is
plsced upon the deck, wltb two large
.woollen buckets, one filled wltb wnter
snd tbe otber empty. Wltb s spoon he
must Alii nil tbs water lima* oue bucket snd transfer It to the other, being
meanwhile tbe butt of tilw comrades'
Jests and Jeers.
Sometimes a delinquent I* made te

Canadian Militiamen Ask to Be Sent

Ottawa, Oct. 16.���Hon. Sam Hughe3
has favorably considered the application of Armand Lavergne, captain and
adjutant of the 61st Montlgnay regiment, to be sent as a Canadian military attache watching the military op
erations of tho Balkan States in the
war against Turkey. The young Nationalist leader, despite his anti-imperialism, is a good soldier and a personal friend of the Minister of Militia.
Captain lavergne will probnbly be ordered to the Balkans within a few
days. Ccl. Hughes wlll also probably
despatch an English-speaking officer
of the Canadian militia to accompany
Captain Lavergne and collect pointers
in the war game for the information
of the Canadian defence department.

Boston, Oct. 16.���The Boston Red
Sox, pennant wdnners of the American league, are the world's champion:1
of 1312. Defeating the New York-
Nationals tcday 3 to 2 in the ten Innings they captured their fourth victory of tne world's series and carried
off the premier honors in baseball.
Thc Giants won three games of the
series that were played before more
than a quarter of a million people|
and one contest was a tie.
Today's was a game of excitement
and changing emotions for the 17,00k*
spectators who went to Fenway park
to see the teams meet in the deciding
contest. Not until twilight had fallen
on the tenth Inning did red stockinged Ed. Yerkes flash over the plate
with the winning run.

was postponed until this evening at 7
o'clock.  '
the subject. Of all the world's operas
"II Trovatore" is the most popular,
picturesque and tuneful. Many it
the Jiest airs hi tbe leading comic
opera are t��ketf*froih ItY ttinefuii-iielb
died. Almost eveiy street organ depends upon "II Trovatore" for it/
melody.
The "Anvil Chorus" is one of thf
most beautiful numbers ever put on
any stage. This setting represents a
gypsy camp in the mountains, sur
rounded by rocks and ruins on all
sides; in tbe clearing are numerous
anvils, with their electric effects
used in making the armor for the sol
dlers before going to the wars.
The famous "Miserere" in the tower
'cene.ls beyond description. It mus'
be Been and heird to be appreciated.
The tower of the prison, overlooking
the rocky coast of Spain, is a most
impressive sight. As for music, when
one recalls the great trio at the end
of the first aci. th" world-renowned
"di Qnella Plra," said to be the greatest tenor solo ever written, the flne
baritone solo "II Balen," the great
duet between the soprano and baritone, and dozens of others, it is easy
lo realize why "II Trovatore" has
been for 50 years the most popular
opera the world has ever known.
For this engagement Mr. Sheehan
has secured the services of Mrs. Em-
iv Grev. famous harpist, direct from
Covent Garden, London. England, and
Mlss Sibley Remus, violinist virtuoso.
Paris Onera Comlque. and a grand
opera orchestra under the direction of
William Glover, one of England's fori*

"THE  GREAT GALEOTO."
"The Great Galeoto," the .play
chosen for presentation In the form
of a dramatic interpretation by Mme.
Harriet Labadie, on Oct. il at th?
New Westminster Opera House, In aid
of the Women's Auxiliary of the
Royal Columbian Hospital, is a beautifully written play, lofty in charac
er. chaste and pure in its treatment
and singularly strong and direct in lta
progress. The characters are universal and distinctive, the plot is simple
and clear, not deeply involved but intensely interesting and beautifully de
veloped. It tells how the idle gossip
of busy tongues ruined a true friendship and a great love, ar.d how it
brought tragedy Into a home where
'���applness had reigned supreme. In
the earlier scenes a vein of humor
sparkles in the lines, wh'ch carry
many home thrusts to scandal-lov'nsr
ears, but as the rlay proceeds cne dra
matic situation fellows close upon the
other until, in the final climax one is
brought face to face with the startling truth of the lightly-uttered warn-
'ng in the llrst act, "It isn't what you
do. nor what people think you do; it'u
whit thev sav you do."
The play demands great versatility
on the part of the dramatic Inter-
nreter. the varying mord3 of Its rap-
idly-chnuglnc scenes calling for a capacity for light comedy, as well as re-
-���iir|n~ great emotional -power, yet
this wdde range of expression is handled hv Madame Labid'e with auch
skill that every requirement Is me*,
every difficulty vanaulshed with per-
I feet pane, and without the least
��� straining after eftect.

July 1 the children of New Turk city
were afforded great Joy by the opening of vacation playgrounds In vurl-
iua parka. Tbeae grounds are plared
In the most populous sections of lh*
city and are a source of continual
pleasure to both boys and girls. Baseball la the most popular game with
the boys.
Another game which Is very popular
Is basketball. Rope quoits and band-
ball are also liked, and some of th*
playgrounds have a sbuflleboard. Relay races and otber athletic sports vary
the proceedings. Many of tbe playgrounds are arranged for girls exclusively, and tbey run potato races,
do gymnastic exercises and bare as
good a time as tbe boys. Many of
the playgrounds bare shower baths
and a few maintain swimming pools.
Tbe picture shows a young athlete la

a fountain In one of the parks.

night That ls. he put a live frog on
tbe book and put the frog In tbe
water and tied tbe otber end of the
���line to a tree on tbe shore of the rlrer.
The next morning be came back and
found that tbere was a flsh on tbe line.
He looked closely and saw thnt It waa
an enormous catfish. The line It was
.hooked on was small and would ordl-
marily have been broken by sucb a
bis fisb, but It was still entire. Th*
man Investigated. He pulled the flsb
���up on shore, and then be found that
Hnslde It was a smaller cntflsh that bod
swallowed tbe frog before tbe big fellow had come nlong. The little flsh
was In the big Ash's stomach, nnd the
struggles of the latter against the line
hnd pierced tbe stomach with one of
the little fish's sharp flna.
