LENGTHY DOCKET

BURNABY'S SMOKER
IS HUGE SUCCESS
President cf Beard of Trade on Muni
clpality's Progress aid Destiny
���Big Attendance.
East Burnaby, Sep'.. 27.���One of tho
best smoking concerts tint ever en-
livened this neck cf the weods was
that of the Kast Burnaby Progressive
association v. hieh took placa thii
evening in Vicker's hall. The popularity cf Uie niTair waa duo to a great
extent to the large and appreciative
audience which graced the tables,
sang solos; ate and drank the refreshments, and last but not least,
listened with attentiveness to the ad
dress of the evening, delivered by Mr
B. O. Walker, president of the Burnaby board of trr.de.
Mr. Wnlkcr took up. several sub
Jects with reference to the municipality, but first of all made reference
to the great loss Burnaby had sustained that morning in tho death of ex-
- Councillor Rumble, a man who had
the interests of the district at heart.
and who could be considered as one
of the few builders of Burnaby from
its Inception.
A letter of OOD dole tice will he Tor
warded to Mrs. Rumble b.v the a3so
elation men Honing the resocct iv
which M"\ Rumble was held durin;:
his period of life in Burnaby.
Mr. Walker first touched on the
early davs when Burnaby vas little
kuown save as a large uncultivated
and uncleared tract of laud lying be
tween Vancouver and Nn"' Westminster, goir.7 on to tell of Us progress
until tcduy it command! the respec'
of all Its surrounding territories.
The speaker then touched on the
part Burnaby can play as a shipping
centre with Its six mllea of water
front on the North Arm cf the Fraser
and nn cqur.1 distance on Burrard Inlet.
"Burnabv must awake to its posst
bllltles." Mr. Walker declared, "an'l
the whole cf the Dominion soon will
be turning its eyes towards the lar^es*
municipality on the lower mainland of
British Columbia."
While mentioning the present ward
system, Mr. Walker stated he was
perhaps Inviting a controversy, but
he was firm In the belief that the
ward system must go. and in Its
place he advocated the election of
councillors to represent the whole of
Burnaby. Each councillor, st the present time, he sa'd. was working for hla
ward alone, nnd if ho secures an appropriation he must cater to an
equal appropriation for the other
councillors. Ile favored also lougor
terms for councillors, so Unit there
would be a continuity of policy, Bng-
Resting that, two or more, stand for
election ench year.
The speaker's remarks were well
received and a hearty vote of thanks
���was tendered him at the close.
A fine mus'cal program v.-ns carried
out, the following taking part:
Messrs. Fred Cowen. Curry, R. Hall.
A. Hall. "S>inrlv" Svenson. Richardson, nnd J. R. Wilson. Mr. T. Yendon
held down the chair ln hl3 usual
style.

"The only thing I am sorry about
Emerson ts the fact that the law only

doubts."

monds yesterday seutenctd J. C.
Emerson, the cheque urtlat who was
arrested by Detective Burrows on
Thursday afternoon wblle in the act
of signing more of the bogus papers
he had passed around the city.
it is probable that the man will be
deported on his coming out of jail.
A sordid case was heard when Jack
Conner, known in the city as "Coffee
Jaei:," was committed for trial on thi
charge of doing bodily harm to
Charles Glbbs on the night of Friday,
September 20. Both the men live in
scows tied to the Queensboro bank of
the river, and the scrap occurred after
an argument had taken place over
Glbb's wife.
. Mr. Adam S. Johnston appeared for
Conner, who was defendant in one
case and complainant ln another.
Oihbs displayed several places about
his hoad which had come in contac*
with some sharp Instrument, while
Conner displayed a scar on his neck.
Magistrate Edmonds did not take
much stock in the evidence of Conner, who appeared to defeat himself,
telling a different lale every time.
Gibbs was released while Conner will
come up for trial In a higher court.
John B. Ashley, an emergency I'm',
foreman employed hy the B. C. E. R..
waa charged with tearing down a barber sign from a pole on Front street,

Adam S. Johnston appeared for the
complainant.
The defendant stated ba was acting
under instructions from the company
to tear down any such signs which he
might comKrue aa dangerous to l!fa
md limb. Although hc had stated
liours to wor!;, hc was liable to be

tc see that the lives and limb3 of the
sbtftpany's workmen wore V^btectrd.
Three linemen had been Injured on

which hnd held signs to the post. The
bench dismissed the case.

oise wss first brcusht up on Wednesday snd adjourned until yesterday
morning after the solicitors for botli
parties agreeing to submit written
arguments. This Mr. J. P. Hampton
Bole complied with, but for some reason Mr. ,T. C. Morrison, for the complainant, failed to do likewise.
Magistrate Edmonds appeared to be
on the point of dismissing the case

evening, and except for a sensational
speech by Sir Edward Carson, the
great gathering ln Ulster hall together with an overflow meeting outside, passed off quietly.
The speeches inside the hall, In
which thousands of persons had
crowded, were rather mild In character, although several of the most
prominent Unionists were present.
"We Are Ready."
Addressing tbe overflow crowd
which gathered near the Ulster hall.
Sir Edward Carson wound up an impassioned speech by declaring:
"We wish peace, but uot at any
price. We will preserve* our birthright and I tell those who govern us
without fear or hesitation that lf they
wish to flght then, by Heavens, we are
ready."
Other speeches were made by Lord

-ocz! Gsntlemen Bring Back Glowing
Accounts cf Ccnditlons on the
Prairies.
Ex-Alderman J. Carter Smith and
his partner, Mr. Robert Buc:-.laud returned this week from a holiday trip
through Upper British Columbia and
Southern Alberta. They report thc
country through which they passed
as looking very prosperous, business
alcng all lines being good.
The fruit crop in the Upper Country, according to Mr. Smith, is excellent this year and arrangements art
belug made for some splendid fruit
e.-.hibits at the Provincial Fair at New
Westminster next week. With Mr.
Buckland he motored through somo
parts of the country and was most
favorably impressed with what he
saw.
They visited Calgary and. 'rrem
north as far as Red Deer, Alberta
ihen south through Southern Alberta.
At every station there were large,
large shipments of farm implement*
r.ualUng delivery. The grain crop in
this part of Western Canada is excellent and the sight of miles upon
m.'lai of grain in stcc'x waiting to be
thre��,hed greatly Impressed the Coast
gentlemen.
Messrs. Smith and Buckland returned through the Crows Nest Pass and
by way of Nelson and the beautiful
Arrow Lakes, well pleased with their
trip and with a keener insight Into
the development of other parte of
British Columbia and Alberta.
BOGUS SOLDIER GET?
PELTED WITH FRUIT
New York. Sept. 27.���Tommy Atkins In all his glory, with cap tipped
awry, red coat, blue trousers flaring
at tlte bottom and a swagger stick
twirling in his fingers, walked Inti
Wall street yesterday. Five hundred
small boys gathered around him and
followed In precession until the
Broad street curb market was reached.
Then an Inspiration seized one of
the crowd as a fruit peddler tried to
push his way through. An over-ripe
banana was hurled at the British Invader. TUIs<was the signal for a volley of mushy fruit that changed the
complexion of the vermilion uniform
to an unhealthy yellow.
"I'm not a British soid'er," said the
unfortunate person. "I'm only a poor
working-man trying to earn a living

Challenge of Grain Growers
Passed Over by Canadian
Manufacturers.
Every Additional Preference Stronger
Tie Between Canada and the
Motherland.
BURNABY PIONEER     iflAlf MILLION
GOES TO HIS REST
Councillor John Rumble Died Yester
day���Born  In  Enoland���Thirty
Years in Canada.
FOR FLOUR MILL
Ottawa, Sept 27.���The Ottawa Citizen says editorially today:
One cannot but feel that the Canadian manufacturers have lost a splendid opportunity for declaring theii
belief In practical patriotism by *.
somewhat more sympathetic answer
at leaBt to the challenge .of the Grain
Growers and in expressing their will
ingness to work for ultimate free
trade within the empire. It Is true
that the challenge was flung in theli
midst during the closing hours of the
convention and equally true that the
message was an attempt to "draw
them" on a subject upon whicli their
convictions are well known to be none
too favorable. Still it would have
meant much If the assoc'ation, cogniz
ant as It must have been of the close
relationship between empire unity and
empire trade, had shown some sign of
that cognizance by word if not by
deed.
Imperial Free Trade.
Whatever may be one's belief concerning tariff walls to the south of
Canada and tariff barriers at its ports
of entry it can hardly be doubted tha1:
imperial free trade is the commercial
ultimate of empire unity. Every additional preference must of necessity
be a stronger tie between Canada and
the motherland unless the family
bond is but a matter of name and
memory. Such action would not work
toward reciprocity, but rather away
from it.
Eliminate Tariff.
The proposition made wa3 entirely
reasonable.    Already a  nominal  preference of one-third exists.   Make this
one-half acd then  by gradual stcgej
eliminate tbe tariff barrier altogether.
It was a lair offer and one that runs
In  the  line ot  strongest probability.
Never was the empire Bpirlt stronger
than tt ls today and unless it should
suffer Btrange declination toward    a
purely    national    independence    and
isolation, this matter of trade preference muBt inevitably come more and
more to the front.
Why Not for Trade ?
At present the cheers of Canada
are for the navy, ln the spirit of imperial union Canada will contribute
her wealth and even her life to maintain the iutegrlty of the empire. It
is brave talk to be followed a little
later by the concrete deed. But If
duty commands in the matter of mill
tarlsm wfcy stun it wh?n It present-
Itself in the guise of trade ? |
Why not show the earnest pvrpo*- I
fulness of Canada's spirit of lcvalty I
by opening thc trade doors to Grea' |
Britain without demanding that sh?
pay a fee to enter ?
The mother country levies no tax
on Canadian goods.
Money talks, they say, patriotism
too in similar speech.
Edmonds, Sept. 27.���ln tbe deatli o
ex-Councillor John Rumble, which oc
curred early this morning at his home
in Jubilee, Burnaby loses one of iti
staunchest citizens, and the ��om
munlty of the lower mainland lose-
one of ita best known pioneers. De

forest to one of the foremost municipalities on the lower mainland.
He was born In Portsmouth, llamp
shire, England, and came out to thii
country about thirty years ago, firs-
locating in Toronto. The call ot th<
West was answered, and a Bttl" ove'
twenty-flve years ago Mr. Rumble ar
rived In Vancouver. He was at that
time a stone masion. later becoming
foreman of construction, and his name
's linked with several of the large
buildings that have been erected In
that city. He had tbe honor of cut
ting and presenting the corner stone
of the Wesley Method'st tburch in
Vancouver, and his last Job as foreman of construction was on the
Winch building on Hastings street.
He left Vaneouver fourteen years
ago and located at Jubilee, taking up
and clearing several acre3 of land, being one of the first settlers in that
district.
In 1901 lie was elected to the Burnaby council, and. with the exception
of one year, remained in office untli
December, 1911. For several year t

Two important questions came up-
for dlsenanion at the same meeting,
namely that of endorsing a motion:
passed by the Canadian ChamDer ot
Commerce in London with regard t��
supporting the British government ire
Its atand on the Hay-Pauncefote
treaty, and second of supporting the
Victoria board cf trade with regard .
tc protecting or assisting the shipbuilding industry in British Columbia.
Panama Tolls.
Speaking on the Panama canal matter. Mr. Minthorne considered that it
was a question of tbe very highest
importance, especially in British Colnmbia. As an example of how the
exemption of American coastwise
shipping from tolls would hurt Interests of thia province, he instanced
railway ties. Shipped to New York,
say, from Uie Fruser river they would
hare to pay tolls, while shipped from
Pnget Sound ports In American bottoms they would pass through the
canal free of duty.
Dr. Holmes and Mr. Small took   a
similar stand,  In. which almost    tbe

Better   Marine   Insurance   Is   Hazen'a
Theme at  Manufacturer's Closing Banquet.
Ottawa, Sept. 27.���As a fitting climax to an eminently successful con-
vontlcn, the Canadian Manufacturers'
Association Convention held a ban
quet last night at the Chateau Laurier, al which 500 were present,
among the honored guest* being:
Premirr-the Rt. hon. R. L. Bordeu,
Sir Wilfrid Laurier, Hon. J. D. Hazen,
Hon. J. D. P.eid, Lon. .1. C. Doherty,
Hon. A. E. Kemp, Mr. John Kirby, Jr.,
president of the American Association
of Manufacturers.
The new president, Mr. R. S. Gour-
lay, occupied the chair and acted as
toastmaster for the one toast, which
was to the King.
None of the speeches were lengthy.
The Premier said some sincere com
Dllments to the American people and
the American nation, and In a splen
did oration urged all Canadians not
to forget the importance of promoting
the ideals cf nationhood a::d character.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier made some humorous references to the tariff question,
and sooke 'n an appreciative way of
the growth of the Canadian industries.
Hon. Mr. Hazen advised the manufacturers to establish a Canadian
Lloyds, and sa'd thet the government
wculd do all that it possibly could to
get better marine insurance rates for
vessels on the St. Lawrence.
After dealing with facts and flgrres
showing the growth of Canada In the
last few years, Mr. Whyte appealed to
the Canadian manufacturers to recognize the importance of higher educa
tlon.
UNWISE CRITICIM
Of AUSTRALIAN IK
Londcn   Daiiy  Chronicle on Compul
6ory Military Service Conditions
���Immigration  Restrictions.
London. Sept. 27.���Tn view of th;:
prediction made by General Hamilton
that Englard will soon adopt compul-
"irv military training of youths, another attack bv the London newspapers on Australia's compulsory sys-
'.em  is part'celarly interest 115.
Although the recent assertions and
misstatements t.t the Dailv Chronicle
concerning Australia's unenthus!a3tic
reception of compulsory soldiering
have been officially denied by the
commonwealth government, the paper
again attacks the system.
The Daily Chronicle now declarer
that there are at least 30.000 drill
shirkers in Sydney alone, and that th"
natural resentment of the 60,000
youths who are obeying the law is
considerably Increased because so
many of their fellows are escaping
their drills.
On the other hand, the Dally N��ws
states that there are not more than
S000 who are avoiding compulsory
training.
St'll further condemnation cf Aus
tralian laws are made when the Morn-
nig Post enters the fleld of critics in-1
attacks the Immigration act. The
Post maintains that the Australian
Government is wrong in preventing
immigrants from landing ln the commonwealth when under a working
eontrae*. *"<">rd!ne *n that paper.
there should be no restrictions placed
on Immigration save those of health
and character.
In replying to these criticisms, Mr.
Theodore Fink, editor of the Melbourne Herald, declares that Australians are more strenuous than the
Rnp-lishiipn, nprl itr* -more work iu
eight hours than the Englishmen do
in ten. He contrasts the starvation
wae�� of Enclond with the wage paid
to the Australian workman, which allows that workman to live comfort
ably.
The feature of the local weekly
market yesterday was another sharp
advance in the price of eggs owing to
the Scarcity cf supplies. The wholesale flgure jumped to 45 cents, the
highest this season, and the retail to
50 cents. The reason given for the
advance nt this time cf the year is
that the old hens are Just leaving off
laying while the spring pullets navt
not yet begun, it abo said that tho
housewives can look forward to a still
further jump in egg prices ns there
are r.o prospects at the present of the
scarcity being relieved.
Prices all round yesterday Held
very flrm due to a general decrease li:
the average stock3.
The vegetable market wa3 again in
a. stagnant state. Spud.< were an absolute drug on the market and came in
very little demand. Cabbage wns also
in excessive supply. A few crates cf
ripe tomatoes from the upper country, however, were sold readily at
$1.50 a crate.
There was a fairly good arrival of
apples and pears, every case of whic'i
was sold readily, Tho pear supply was
entirely Inadequate,
The poultry recipts were hardly as
laiu'e as usual und with the purchasing good, dealers had no reason tc
Complain of the diy's business.
Tliere was an unusually heavy buying in a'l kinds of dressed meats

First
Woman   to    Make   Aeroplane
Flight in Paris���Companion
Was  Killed.
Lyons, France, Sept. 2".���Haronear
De La Roche, a noted aviatress, waa
desperately injured In an automobile
collision near Belleville-Sur-Saote. this
evening. Charles Voisln, an aviator,
was killed at the same time.
Eoroness De La Roche was the first
woman to make an aeroplane flight in
Paris. She won her air pilot license
in February. 1910. At nn aviation
meeting at Rheims the following July
the Baroness, driving a Voisin biplane
lost her nerve at a height of 150 feet,
shut off the power and fell with her
machine to the ground. Both legs
and arms were broken, but she recovered sufficiently to continue her
hazardous pastime.
Baroness De La Roche has driven
motor boats in races and automobiles
at exhibitions and as soon   as  flying;
became  practicable she learned  how
to manage a biplane.

PRESIDENT TAFT
REPLIES   TO   "TIME*"
London, Sept. 27.���The Times this
morning publishes a  message, whicii
its correspondent obtained from President Taft with reference  to Panama.
The message follosvs:    ",lt seems to
me an unfair argument to charge  a
man with being In favor of dishonoring treaty obligations,  when   he   asserts that hls government never  entered into such a treaty obligation.   It
Is not competent to charge dishonor
before it has been established that we
violated the treaty.   I gave notice that
I held to this construction of the Hay-
Pauncefote treaty iu ray message to
congress a year ago, and no suggestion
that  my   construction  of  the  treaty
was   at   fault   was   made   until   the'
cnnal bill hai almost reached Its Anal
passage."   The Times editorially protests that it Is surprised at this message,   because   It    never   made    the
charge     of    dishonorable     cendue
against President Taft.

FIGHT ON I
History repeats itaelf. We are a
comparatively young city, the province is young, even what we fondly
term the Canadian nation is young
also, and the conditions to be encountered in our eve.v day life are, Uiougu
modified, still essentially or the aame
nature tbat have been noticeable in
the early evolution of all nations.
The glamour of the past draws ita
veil over the mires and the downfalls
encountered by the older peoples of
the world. Looking at their history
we are as it were standing upon an
eminence gazing away over ridge after ridge of. effort crowned with success until out vision is limited by the
grey haze that hides the birth of a
people.
It is in that haze that wc as Canadians now live and have our being,
but to us the haze is non-existent
rather many things stand out in the
full glare of their crudity. Success
we see���railroad graders jumping in a
generation to the knightly spurs that
nowadays mark those who have forced
their way to the top, failures in degree equally great are to be seen also
But these are old common things that
tbe world ha3 experienced frequently.
So too, it is comforting to think when
-we look upon a nation tbat bas
achieved much in the direction of
what may be termed "public spirited-
r.ess" that once long ago the tore-
runners cf that race were for the
most part composed cf peoples warring against each other, holding divergent views, faithless and unheeding
cf a common destiny to be worked
for n:id won.
But always in this period of immaturity there have been men who
have had the courage of their convictions, who have dared to dream
greatly, and have sown the seeds
that pei !uyn tor several generations
have uot borne fruit.
These men wero aware ot the
crudity cf *he age in which they lived,
but in spSe|offjdhemies around their
own hiarmsWnls, in tbe face of glaring dishonesty-and the selfishness of
others, have stuck to their purpose
ar.d done great work. The nameless
ones who have done thla throughout
our whole empire's story are legion.
Coming to more modern times no one
who reads of the life of Nelson, ot
liis ill provisioned ships, of the prejudice and bickerings he had to encounter catt fail to be more impressed with his achievements.
Ar.d. as "history repeats itself, so too
.does opportunity. Today there is no
part of the oversea empire of Britain
in which greater opportunities for
public service may be found than in
British Columbia. Here there are
many problems to be solved, many
wrongs to be righted, countless
avenues for building truly and welL
There are some whose swords may
be seen here and there flashing abovo
the turmoil of one of the most dangerous periods lu the life of any people���
a period of unbounded prosperity. We
need more fighters, more men of
self sacrifice, of insight, of constructive ability���but it is good to think we
":have some.
.And to those it may be well to Rive
Erret'.rip- and good cheer. Discouragement they must expect to face. Other
men In other ages doing iiiiuilar work
thought 83 they must do of sheathing
their swords, but when tho clouds are
blackest then are they most likely to
break.   Fight on !

as nearly as possible, be balanced by
Immigration from the British Isles.
The permitting of the special reserve
men to come to Canada is likely to
add materially to the numbers of our
British Immigrants and to raise the
standard of the quality.
For the reservists themselves the
change should be a gain. There are
doubtless many honest and capable
men wbo have difficulty in making a
living in the Old Country, and are prevented from sharing the opportunities
ef this country because, as special
army reserve men, they had to remain at heme. Here they will now
have a chance to make a living and
bring up their children to be good
Canadians in every sense of the word.

mand, is satisfied, the general public,
which doesn't know a club owner personally, which hasn't any pull, but
which has paid its two bits year after
year, finds the supply of tickets too
short to satisfy its legitimate demands. It turns to the scalpers and
yells its head off. If the friends of
Mr. Whatshisname who run down to
Boston from Maine or of Mr. Soandso
who come to New York from New
Hampshire had to get in line for their
seats like the common people of
Gotham and the Hub there would be
B lot more seats for the common people.
lf the National Commission would
pass a rule restricting the number of
reservations to the lowest possible
limit���taking care of only the men
connected with baseball who are entitled to consideration���and warn all
club owners that no tickets can be
had for their friends, there would be
a good deal less of the ticket scalping
noise. In lots of cases the magnates
would be glad to be relieved of the
bother of getting seats for their
friends. It would save them a lot of
trouble If they could say to all inquirers, "Nothing doing, the National
Commission has cut that out, and I'll
be lucky to get a seat for myself ln
the back row somewhere."
Now the club owyer's friends know
that he can get seats for the asking
if he asks in time, and the club owner knows that they know it, consequently ho puts himself to a lot cf
trouble for fear of offend ng people
who may be able to do him harm In
his own town. And so the supply of
t'ekets for public sale is eaten into
deeper and deeper every season as
���he knowledge of the way to work a
pull spreads through baseballdom.
Cut out the pull and let any except
'he known regular natrons cf Fenwav
Park and the Polo Grounds take their
chances at the box office. There Is
justice in reserving for patrons who
have reserved seats cr boxes regular
ly during a season a corresponding
number of seats for a world's series
at the grounds which they patronise.
Here again a big abuse creeps in, for
the regular box holders try to ring
in all their friends and some of their
friends friends, and demand double
or treble the quantity ef seats to
which they are entitled���and some of
them get that many.
A lot of this can be remedied if th-1
-commission will take a Tttle more
���dium cn Its shoulders and cut the
strings that have been pulled every
-ear since the ser!e3 became world-
famous.

ARMY
RESERVE   MEN
ADA.
FOR  CAN
Under an arrangement between the
British and the Canadian Governments special, army reserve men may
now emigrate from tlie United Kingdom to this country. It is hoped,
and expected, that this relaxation or
army regulations wlll be wholly for
the advantage of all concerned. It
will Involve no loss of defensive power for the Mother Country, for. though
reservists come to Canada, thw will
still be at the call of the War Office,
and the Canadian Government wfll do
whatever - in--n*��.es��ury to enable the
men to answer the summons.
mo Canada the coming of each men
will generally be a gain, for, aa a
rule, the men on the special reserve
are qualified and disposed to cam
Iheir living at some useful work. Further, such men are ready-made citizens, prepared to do their duty as soldiers if necessary.
For Canada It is highly important
that the increasing volume of immigration from foreign countries ahould.
Futterton down���or up���who p:cii-
the winner of the coming combat be
tween the Red Soy and Giants will
have his fingers crossed all the time
knowing that tho dope Isn't worth a
continental darn.
The miles and miles of dope and
predictions Can be boiled- dorm to a
single sentence: The team that has
a couple of pitchers on edge and tha
luck of the game will win the world's
pennant.
But there is one prediction that can
be made by anybody. If the weather
isn't tco rotten there won't be room
enough in the Polo grounds and Fenway Park to accommodate half the
people who want to see the Red Sox ��� _
play the Giants next month. In that 11
connection a suggestion oT two won't j I
be amiss.
The magnates won't listen to any
proposition to lengthen the world'3!
scries to live out of nine, or six out'
of eleven games, so as to give more
people a chance at the big show and
lessen the congestion that is largely
due to the fact the fans feel that
they must get to see the first game lu
their city. It is possible to finish in
four games, and that means oniy two
games in each city, so everybody, including the scalpers, hustle to get
seats for both those games, fearing
there may not be any more.
The    magnates   say   the   series   Is
long enough and they don't want te
over-do a good thing.     Moreover,   if
the series last six   or seven   game.s
that is as long aB they���the magnate-
���want to stick around for the finish.
Oh, very well.     They don't   have   tt
stick.   They don't have to go at all.
In that connection there   is a sug
gestion that will help and ought to be !
adopted.   The world's series Is an in j
stitution in which the patrons ef thr
two cities Interested have, or  slioulc'
have, first claim.    The public make.
the world's series and   Its great   re
nowri possible.    When it conies to dis
trlbutlng tickets the public is last ii
line at the box office.
First coun s tin? National Commis
slcn will) Its big reservation to til;
care of ovefybody connected with th-
Aame from Vancouver to Key Wesl
from Iros Angolefl to St. Johns, will
wants to attend the games. Tha'
would not he so Ind, but everybedj
concerted with the game usualll
wants to bring along u friend or sev
eral friends for company, and he
wants seats fcr them. Even that l��
n"t the limit, for everybody connec'
ed with the game who has any friends
that want to see the world's series is
importuned by the said friends to get
seats for them.
Nowadays every time you pick out
a concrete case and nam,e an Individual, simply for illustration, everybody
thinks vou are aiming at that particu
lar individual for some reason or
other.
Suppose an owner of a National ot
American league team has friends ($
even casual aefi'iaintanceB In New
Tork or Boston. Most cf them have.
These friends are going to beg the
club owner whom they know to get
them seats for the coming series. Peo
ole who plan to visit New York or
Boston In October are going to tha
club owner in their own city and trv
to pret seats through him. and there ls
hardly a city that has not a cluh owner of some kind. A lot of them know
some of the big leaguers and will try
to work a pull through th"in.
The result is that before this   de-

Some little delay has occurred ir.
the turning over of the championship

"Pour score and seven   y?ars   ago
our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the pronosifon
that all men are created equal   Now
we are engaged in a great civil war,
testing whether that nation or any nation so conceived and dedicated, can
long endure.   We are met on a grea*
battlefield of that war. We have eome
to dedicate a portion of that field an
a final resting place   for   those   who
here gave their lives that  the  nation
might live. It is altogether fitting and
proper that we should do this.  But in
a larger sense ve cannot dedicate, we
cannot consecrate, we cannot  hallow
this ground.    The   brave men, living
and  dead,   who  struggled here   have
consecrated   it   far  above   our   poor
power to add or detract     The world
will little  note, nor   long  remember, I
what we say here, but It can   never |
tnrpet. what they d:d here.    It is for
us, the living, rather to be dedicated
here to the   unfinished   work   which
they who fought here have   thus   so
nobly advanced.   It is rather for us to
be here dedicated to the   great   task
remaining before us: that from these
I honored  dead  v. e talis  Increased  devotion to that cause  for  which   they
gave tire last full measure   of   devotion; that we here highly resolve that

that this nation, under God, shall hav?

COST OF LIVING IS
LIKELY TO MOUNT
Says Yale    Professor   at   Commerce
Congress���Scheme of International
Arbitration Advocated.
Boston, Mass., Sept. 27.���An International conference to consider a remedy for thc Increasing cost of living
was advocated hefore the Intornatlon-
nl Chambers oi Commerce today by
Proft'Bsor Irving Fisher of Yule University. Pref. Fisher suggested that
the '..eight of the gold dollar should
be Increased enougn to restore somi.-
of itti lost purchasing power.
A ."'.vision of letter postage rated
and ether postal reforms were favor-
id by tlie OOngreM, The convention
adopted a report on the subject pro
Be;m<l by Ur. Alfrtd Oeorg of Geneva, Switzerland", and voted to havo
the permanent committee bring the
matter to the attention of the next
conference of tiie Universal I'o.sia:
Union at Madrid In May, 11113.
Several delegates, including Hugo
Manes, of Herlin, Bernard .1. Shoniu
ger, ef Paris; A. Barton Kent, of Kon-
don, and Eduardo August!, of liiroe
Iona, who discussed the repoit agreed
in tlie main witii Ur. (leor^.
The congress passed a resolution fa
vorins uniformity of consular Invoices
and limiting consular service. Thf
cont of living will continue upward
and not go downward for several
years, was one of tlie opinions expressed bv Prof. Fisher at the conclusion of his report.
The recommendation of Prof Fisher
regarding a conference on the big'.:
cost of living was adapted.
A resoultlon favoring international
arbitration waa passed. The resolution    which waa   presented   by Presi
the settlement of disputes upon which
all nations may rely. i believe that
meetings like this stimulate a desire
j to reach some such result, and I hope
, that  these   meetings   may  continue
I year after year."
I The president said the United
States was behind other nations of
the world In Its method   of progress,
| came out strongly for a budget system, and made It plain that this nation's banking und currency methods
do not meet with his approval.
"We have a system of banking and
currency  that   no  can   cun   defend,"
sa'd he.   "But It seems to bo the last!
subject   that  congress   is   willing  to>
take  up,      It  la a   subject   affecting
every one, the richest to the poorest,'
but It ought to bu disposed of ln a ,
scientific way."
CALIFORNIAN BABFS
WFLL PROVIDED FOR
All Four Parties Endorse S:heme   of
Pensions to Widowed Mothers���
Bad Days Ended.
Sacramento, Cal., Sept. 2t ���Granting pensions to mothers- of children,
v. here fathers have died, been dis
abled or huve disappeared, is the new
measure Of Bocial justice endorsed by
all four of the California party plat
forms adopted here this week.
The Socialists were Ihe first to
write it Into tlieir list cf immediate
demands, taking that action on Tuesday after a strong speech In Its behalf by Mra. Elvina S. Reals, assem
bly candidate from Berkeley.
The Roosevelt Republicans cam?
next, the principle securing endorsement In their completed platform. The
party is pledged to pais a pension law-
dent Louis Canon Lt grand was as fol- 'for the relief of mothers of dependent
lows:
The congress affirms the desire lo
eee convened as soon as possible a
number of official International con
presses assuring between nations tht:
existence of arbitral judicial arbitration in the widest sense of the term
and such as may assure an equitable
solution of all international controversies, either between private peoph
cr of different nations or between governments.
"Resolved, tliat this congress
agrees to the principle of combination
or nations when and where possible to
endeavor to prevent the atrocities of
war."
PROMOTION OF TRADE
Wlll ABOLISH WAR
President Taft Criticizes the    United
States  Banking System���Country Behind In Procree*.
Poston, Sept. 27.���Addressing th-
delegates to the International Con
gress of Chambers of Commerce a'
the banquet In bis honor last night
President Taft touched upon the ben*
fits which would accrue to the nation^
of the world from associations seek
ing to promote the commerce of the
world and thereby abolish war.
"You came here for trade and   t
promote   trade," said   the  president
"Trade Is peace.     If   trade   had   ni
other good thing coming with It thai,
to keep off war. that la sufficient.
"I believe we must have some solution of the problem that arises and
some escape In the future from the
burden that is carried by the Increasing armaments of nations, and I believe we will never hafe a solution
until we have furnished a court for
children.
Senator Caminettl, who had previously announced his Intention to ma ;c
this an issue of the Democratic campaign, secured the adoption by his
party of the following declaration:
"We favor the pensioning cf needy
mothers with young children, so that
they can keep their children with
thein, and under home influences. Wc
ilso favor the establishment of a fund
from which there shall be paid an allowance to each needy mother at
childbirth, similar to the laws put In
force bv some of fhe most progres
sive legislatures of the present time."
The Taft Republicans. In their plat
form, pledge to support to "reason
able pens'ons to the mothers of dependent children."
Thus the four part'es whose nominees will make up the entire mem
borship of the next California legisla
hire stand pledged to enp.ot a law
vhich phall guarantee to every
���mother in California the opportunity
to retain care and training of her own
children In her own home and closlntr
'orever the old. bad days of the sending of half-orphn^s to Dublio Inst'tn
Mops to live out a sad. bleak childhood.

and attention given by the scouts, and
we were glad to bear reports of progress from all points of the province.
We were officially notified of an early
Inspection by our Provincial Commissioner, Colonel Hall, who is making a
tour of Inspection.
We ftre sorry to lose the valuable
services of our Treasurer Scoutmaster George Trapp, who ha3 departed
fcr McGill, Montreal. We wish him
every success in bis new sphere, and
on his return he can be sure cf a
warm welcome from the scouts, also
Patrol Leaders Merldith end De Ben

the success of the troop.
Our genial physical Director, Mr.
Matthews, has again prepared a
splendid program for the winter sea-
son. ln camp this was known as
"physical destruction."
The local secretary, Scoutmaster W.
M. Chapman, was present this week
and prepared the list of badges earned In the last session. These are expected shortly and will be presented
some time In November.
One of our latest recruits is a scout
from Oregon, U. S. A.
Scouts everywhere will hear with
sadness of the disaster which overtook nine of the Boy Scouts under
Scoutmaster Marsh, who were sailing
to camp off the Isle of Sheppey, England. A sudden squall took the boat
over, and although everything was
dAne that good seamanship demanded,
nine of the boys perished. Our sympathy goes out to the bereaved parents, and scouts of the district.
There are still vacancies for a few
boys In the troop. Apply Drill Hall
