PRICE FIVE CENTS
In Presence of Distinguished Gathering Hdn." Dr. Young
Lays Cornerstone of New Royal Columbian Hospital,
Which Completed Will Co��t $226,000 -Half a Century
Since First Was Built-Offers to Furnish Two Wards.
"As Provincial Secretary, I declare
tbls, the corner stone of the Royal
Columbian Hospital well and truly
laid." With these words and a slight
tap with .his trowel the ceremony of
laying the foundation stone 61" New
Westminster Hospital was performed
yesterday afternoon by Hon. Henry
Bsson Young, M.D., minister of education and provincial secretary, and
coincidentally another milestone in
the progress of this flourishing city
on the banks of the majestic Prase1'
river, was marked.
Not since the visit of the Qovernor
Oeneral last September has such a
gathering of the city's leading men
and women In civic, business, philanthropic and other circles taken
place snd the occasion will go down
as one of the most memorable tbat
bas occurred since the inception of
the Royal City nearly sixty years ago.
Half Century Ago.
It Is just about fifty years ago that
the first hospital was established lu
New Westminster, on the site now
occupied by St. Patrick's hall. La tei
the present hospital at Sapperton wa?
built and lt In turn will be reduced tc
scrap to make room for the more
modern imposing edifice at present
uanr construction.  '
At the opening ceremony Presiden'
J. J. Johnston of the directors' board
after welcoming Dr. Young, the mayor
and visitors, declared tt was significant that tha ceremony was taking
place just half a century after th<
first hospital was built. He brlefb
outlined the history of the hospital
and observed that it was evident that
the institution stood high in tbe estimation ot the citizens as witness tbi
Interest taken In It. Ile described
bow the structure bad been financed
and slated lt was hard to express how
grateful the board was to the provln
clsl government and city council for
tbeir seslstanee. _flj

Aid From  Presbyterians.
Following the Invocation by Dev. J.
8. Henderson and three hearty cheers
for the provincial government. It waa
announced that tho Knox Presbyter-
lan church had decided to fully equip
one private ward in the new building
Tbls declaration was received with
considerable enthusiasm and the hope
wns expressed that other bodies wonld
come forward In a similar manner.
Mayor Lee. the next speaker, de
dared that indeed the occasion war
very auspicious. Hospitals had stoo*
flrsl mnonc Institutions since the flTSI
���era of Christendom. He b''*fl-
sketrhcl t'"�� details of W>e building

���We are here today," he continued
"tp the direct result of the orovtoci*'
government's interest and the gener
ous sunnort <*t our citizens."
He closed bv extending a rnWPal,
welcome to Dr. "Young and all ol thus*-
present.
Dr. Young's Address.
Having laid the stone. Dr. Totm*
jocularlv aald that he believed Tie was
fullv qualified to be the tlTSt patient
of-tho hosoltal. Ho had watched wtth
Interest the progress Hot New Westminster and believed that H esmed
Interest the progress ol Wow "West
'City.
Despite the so-called materialism or
the west and New Westminster It was
���significant that ths tflOsens should
rise io tho occasion and ptfWIe tt**ti
should   devote   so   fliaUh   Onia   to
ol
schemes   like   this.     The   efforts
Mayor Lee to secure a grant for i
institution from the government wer*
ardent  and   painstaking    while" "Mi-
Thomas Gifford had been most emphatic ln his demands.
The government, he said, had devot
ed $350,000 to hospitals during the
year and New Westminster bad been
the only city that had received money
for construction. He complimented
Mr. S. V. Birds, the architect of Unbuilding and hoped with Mayor Lee
that when lt was opened it would be
free from all debt.
At the conclusion of Dr. Young'?
sneech the party repaired to Oif
Nurses' Home where refreshment'
were served.
Excellently Planned.
To Miss Scott, lady superintendent
and secretary B. 8. Withers, a grea'
deal of credit Is due for the excellent

BATTLE WITH GAS
COMPANY BEGINS
Former Employees Give evidence Re
epsctlng "Tamping" Operations
on City Streets.
Yesterday afternoon Mr. ' Justice
heard, partially, the action at the ln
stance of the city of New Westmlnstei
against the New Westminster Gas Co.
tue proprietor of wnicn is Mr. Jame*
cuiiuingnam. ��
'l'he city uues for damages caused
by the excavations on a large number of specified streets in tbe city D>
the defendant b operations in laying
gas pipes and mains whicb the plain-
t.ffs were compelled to restore to a
proper condition subsequently; and
also for an Injunction restraining th*
defendant from further excavating on
any streets in the-city without receiving permission from tb6 city engineer.
Mr. W. G. McQuarrie represented
the city and Mr. Adam S. Johnston
appeared for Mr. Cunningham.
Mr. McQuarrie read a large num Der
of questions and answers put to and
answered by the defendant in an examination for discovery held last Oc
tober. From these it appeared tbat
Mr. Cunningham relied upon tbe old
Gasworks bylaw, and tbat he woe only
required to notify the city three clear
days, before proceeding to excavate
streets. He considered he did not
require special permission. He admitted opening up the streets spec!
f!ed, bnt knew nothing sfcout what It
cost the city to restore them. Hf
generally denied they were left in bail
condition.
His men hsd Instructions to do rlgh.
n regard to every street in the city.
He did not take the men oft from
"tamping" the fills of the trenches: He
told them not to spend too much time
because It could not be done properly
at the time.

Called at Millside to Discuss Proposed
Incorporation   Measures���Election and Lights.
A meeting was held last night at
Millside, called by the Incorporation
Committee of Coituitlam to explain
tbe propoeed adjustment of the fi-
���aaoos hetween the area of what will
be Port Coquitlam city and the remaining portion of the municipality.
The proceedings were, to imt It
mUdly, warm, and at one stage dls
tlnctly torrid, when, taunted bv Coun
cllor Marmont that the lighting of
Frenchtown waa left over until elec
tion time. Councillor Langan retorted
tbat hla municipal colleague was tho
sit Incompetent man that ever sat
on a council.
Councillor Morgan opened the ball
with a sketch of the reason for se
parating the incorporating area fron
the rest of the municipality and ant
ctpated that tbe charter would b-
granted In February or March.
At present it extended to 64 square
miles, nl regard to the ftnano'ai ad
Justment It was based on the follow
lng figures: The assessment ot thr
municipality was $8,600,000; the Incorporated area contained SS.00O.00t>
nf that and the rural portion $3,000,
000. Therefore the committee pro
nosed to apportion five-eighths of the
flaVUtiea and assets to the pew clt-
and three-eighths to the district out
���.1.11\ which Mt them exactly with th'
same reponslbllity tbey assumed a'
present.
Hn thought that a fair and equitable
arrangement. They were giving noth
Ing nor receiving anything. Any
other matters would be decided by thc
provincial government authorities.
Ex-Reeve Booth criticised adverse!;,
the formation of the Incorporation
committee and Its proceedings and
asserted that the east end had re
;eived a proportion of three to on*
expenditure of the taxation.
Councillor Langan stated thnt tiniest end hsd received over $24,0
noro than their share according tc
revenue.
Tbe subject ot tbe lightirg of

being governed at the present by
"mawkish sentimentality and grosj
ignorance," is the declaration or Un
James liarr. president of the British
Medical Association.     '
Sir Janjes was addressing a meeting of the Eugenic Society tonight,
his subject being "Practical Eugenics." While urging that practical
eugenics were of primary Importance
in the community. Sir James bitterly
attacked the Asiiulth government as -
set of dunderheads whose Ignoranee
was truly pitiable.
Declaring that the subject of en
panics bad never been held in high
opinion by many of the legislator.
'who," quoted Sir James, "wero *<
degenerated lot of fools' dear at any
.ir.ee, let alone their yearly salary ol
two thousand dolars per year."
Continuing, the speaker considered
'such fools as these cmnberers of thc
ground" should be removed from
power If Britain desired to maintan
her position among the nations of the
world..
Britain, he continued, required to
raise a healthy and intelligent race.
Nevertheless at the present time th?
submerged tenth were aiding In add
lng a race of cowardly holllgans tc
the population.
The unfit, concluded the speaker,
were the best cared for by the preB
ent government, who did not give on;
assistance to the valuable man of tli-
community, the niun whn was health.

A fight for the Introduction of military service fur women Is in progress
by the women bf Denmark as a sequel
to tbeir expected victory ln the strug
gle for women's suffrage.
The Danish parliament, tbey believe. Is almost' certain to pass tbe
bill giving women the vcte this winter, and many women are beginning
to ask wbat will be become ot tlje
organizations 'which formed for tht
purpose ot securing the enfranchisement of women, have provided many
f them with interesting and sorn'i
times lucrative positions.
Mrs. Kmma Gad, suffragist and author, suggests a solution of the difficulty by advising tbem to start a college for the training ot Danish girls
n pursuing commlsslarlat work.
She argues that this Is tbe only fair
thing tor women to do ln exchange
for the vote since men are compelled
:o give military service for the ad
vantages which they have long en

MILESTONES   OF   GOLD.
Coincident with the official cere
natty at the Royal Columbian hospital
yesterday, in Itself a sign of the on
ward march of the city towards a
t&roadtr and fuller destiny, we are
glad ot chronicle a decision reached
(tsj the heads of the nine banking institutions in the city that, from tlie
Nrv Tear, the New Westminster bank
clearings will be tabulated separately
in thc clearing house which is then tc
tie established.
Viewed from all standpoints this
decisicn will he welcomed by the citl
seas while to mention one only of Its
immediato results, there will henceforth accrue to Westminster a very
important measure of publicity which
hitherto bas been denied ber.
Thia fleeting year will go down to
history ns Ihe year of the Royal City's
reawakening. Solid progress is today
still our clarion cry and that this is
no mere booster's dream ls further
borne out by the fact that the men
who supply the sinews of war or cf
jmogress have now gone on record
Chat the time has come for them to
beep pace with that progress.

tions.
Mr. Whltlock is serving his fourth
term as mayor of Toledo. After a consultation with Mayor naker, of Cleveland he went abroad for the purpose
of gathering information that" might
be of service to Toledo, Cleveland and
other Ohio cities In meeting the new
conditions created hv the new constitution of Ohio which confers home
rule on cities. For the benefit of
Ohio cities he will make an elaborate
report on the subject matter under
consideration.
Needless to ssy our civic authorities
will secure a copy of Mayor Whit-
lock's report at the earliest possible
moment.���Winnipeg Tribune.
PUBLIC    OWNERSHIP.
The whole history of municipal
and government ownership ln Europe
and Great Britain " is calculated to
encourage those who believe in the
possibilities of corporate action and
public ownership.
The experience of Great Britain
seems to demonstrate that the greatei
the number of things done by the city,
the better they wlll be done. The ef
feet of the movement toward municipal ownership has been to stimulate
cltlrenshlp.
The opening of a municipal tramway Is an occasion for public rejolc
Ing. The sense of responsibility ls
awakened bv ownership and In a shor
time an affectionate regard for the
agencies wliich serve them ls aroused.
The people feel that the cars ar��
��� heir cars, and thst ln supporting
them they are using their own. This
feature of public ownership does not
appear In figures on the balance-
sheet, but its effect and influence is
far-reaching.
The cure for bad city government It
not lo give the city less to do, hut to
v\e It moro to do. At pr mt we
have not too much for our cities; to
do, but too little. An enlarged public spirit will como with enlarged
public activity, just as the flowering
of public enthusiasm for municipal
rule in England came with the increase In the activities pf the city.
It has been well said that. "The cure
for democracy is more democracy.''
The democratic ideal is bein? worked
out through municipalities. Men are
awakening to the Immense nosslbill
ties of nubile ownership and corporate action, and striving to direct resources os tliat tlie lives of all the peo-
nie may he mado more tolerable.���St.

To a deputation , from the Irish

him at the House cf Commons, Mr.
Birrell announced that he had doe'd
cd to appoint a commission of Inquiry
into the working of the Beard of Na
tional   Education   In   Ireland,  with
In their rcport on the sheep industry the commissioners who investigated lt on behalf of the Dominion
government state, among other things
that sheep in this country are, aa a
rule, poorly housed and poorly fed.
that severe losses are sustained
through lack ot proper care during
the winter .season and thut from shear
ing to marketing no country ln the
world handles its wool ln a worse
manner.
Besides pointing out these weaknesses of many Canadian sheep raisers the commissioners report fully upon the state of the Industry In Oreai
Britain and describe how Old Country ihepherds handle their flocks.
Evidences of a definite object in
breeding operations, they state, are to
be found on every hand, a certain de
maud being kept ln view and every
ef'jrt made to build up a reputation,
and afterwards to hold it.
A farmer'there may keep sheep ot
the breed popular lu the district and
although they, may not be eligible for
record ln an Association Flock Book
they are -very highly bred and young
ewes Are sold at very remunerative
prices to neighboring farmers for
crc csing purposes. Kor producing
early lambs the ewes are bred to
lamb soon nfter New Years. Male
lambs not intended for the early trade
are always wethored.
Besides grass pastures such crops
a3 kale, vetches, rape, cabbages and
turnips-are- grown for the sheep
These are often sown in succeeding
periods in season so that when on=
is consumed another is readv, thus
providing fre3h feed a great part of
the summer. The sheep are not allowed to forage over large areas but
are often kept within portable fences
which are moved periodically to take
In new patches.
The same thoroughness is exercised
In the treatment of the flock throughout the winter with the result that
sheep kpenlng is a highly profitable
branch of Ensl'sh agriculture.

HOCKEY"  MAKE'S   HIT
IN   CLEVELAND, OHIO
Hockey has become an exceptionally popular form of sport In Cleveland, thanks to the efforts of Manager Harry Shannon, tho enterprising
manager of the Elysium Rink. When
he first undertook to promote the
game here things looked discouraging, but he stuck to it, and through
his persistency and good judgment
he developed tbc -sport here until lt
became a money-maker last season.
It mny surprise some persons to
know that for some of the games last
winter tbere were aa many as 3700
paid admissions. This was going at
quite a clip, considering that a few
years ago a corporal's guard oould
not be got to attend a hockey match

THROWING THE BOOMERANG.
Something More Than Actual Muscle
Is Requirsd.
An Englishman who has been investigating the subject-��! boomerangs
in Australia and who has reported his
results and made exhibition throws
for King Oeorge says that by selecting a boomerang of suitable shape
and by knowing the knack of giving
it just the right twist the natives of
Queensland and New South Wales can
make them do things so startling that
they seem bewitched.
The boomerangs are usually made
from a limb or root of a tree that has
the proper crook, or sometimes they
arc made by heating a green stick in
the fire and then bending it. They
are worked to the desired shape by
scraping with flint instruments and
smoothing with bits of gloss. They
ore usually made rounding on one
side and flattish on the other. One
form of boomerang used iif war has a
hook at one end.
When this instrument is thrown at
an enemy he puts up his own boomerang to ward off the blow. This action causes the hook to catch on his
own boomerang and brings the
hooked weapon sideways in suoh a
way that it deals him a hard blow on
the side of tbe head almost in spite ol
anything he can do to parry it.
Making the boomerang perform a
figure eight in the air is comparatively a common feat and all sorts of
complicated figures ere produced, including a double eight. The test of a
sure thrower is to make the stick
come back obediently to his feet after
engaging in these, flights, so he will
only have to stoop to pick it up.
One very useful throw which is
often used by the natives in hunting
wild fowl and other small animals
consists in standing behind some barrier which cuts oil the view and then
hurling the instrument in a direction
away from the game so that it then
turns in its flight and goes straight
among them, wli>re it performs a
number of gy rat'ons and is pretty
sure to cause considerable carnace.
The boomerani is a rather ticklish
instrument to fool with, for unless s
person is acquainted with their ways
they are liable to turn in the air and
give someone a rap when least expected.  .
In throwing the instrument mon
knack than actual muicle is required,
though the movement must b�� raptf
and straight. It is thrown nt an angle
usually oif about 45 degrees in the air.
and just as it leaves the hand it is
given a slight upward jerk which im
parts to it a spinning motion. It ii
this spinning motion, like the curve
of a thrown baseball, that produce;
the eccentric resulta.     '
penny piece shouid be struck by the
mints aa a solution of the copper famine cauoed bj^ the act.
Take for instance, the weekly wage
of 30 shillings, which le a good average wage, for the British workman.
He formerly received a.gold sovereign
and a gold half-sovereign. Now ho
gets 29 shillings and 8 pence. This
has caused a great Increase in the
demand for copper, and now that the
Christmas trade is beginning, when
thousands of small articles are purchased, the trouble has become more
acute.
One objection raised is thst the suggested new coin wlll be very similar
in size to the six-penny piece and will
lead to confusion and mistakes but
the mint officials advocate the use ot
a coin with a lower percentage of silver than the ordinary silver coin. The
question will be raised in Parliament
shortly.

Who Declares She Would Rather Plow
Than Qo to the Opers.
"The happiest girl in all the World I"
That is the distinction claim.-d by
Miss Jack May, a slender bit of femininity, who owns and operates a
farm in thc wilds of Canada. Not
many years ago Miss Msy, who is
the daughter of Admiral Msy, of the
British rovy, was a frilly, frothy
society belle, to whom tho theatre,
balls and card parties represented all
tha'. was worth living for. When the
Boer war broke out and, along with
scoras of other aristocratic young English women, she went io the ffont as
nurse, hsr eyes wero opened to the
smallness of the butterfly existence
she had been leading. Upon hers return home, she at once :en|ered the
Swanley Agricultural College at Kent,
and at ihe conclusion of lier' course
amazed her forni'-r fashionable friends
by becoming manager of a dairy farm.
After a time slid became wbrking
manager of another farm in Kent,
where she took active charge of aU.
the work, grain growing, vegetable
gardening, and live stock. She went'
di-cct from that farm to the Canadian
west, to a ranch of 320 acres near the
Canadian Pacific Railway, and now
all English society is interested in
watching her career. Not a man is
employed on Miss May's entire farm.
Her only companion and helper is a
Canadian girl of 18.
"Go back to society again? Not for
worlds," dedar:s this former London
favorite. "I would rather plow than
go to the opera. I would rather plant
corn than attend a pink tea and I
much pre'e.' currying my horses to
arraying myself in an evening gown.
What's a butterfly society life in damp
and foggy England compared to Teal
life in brig'it sunshine and bracing
cold?" Mis* May's success had made
her views bn agriculture much sought
after, especially among the English
immigrants.
Although this little English Woman
has   sacrificed conventional feminine
garb and has given   up   social   life
completely, she has lost none of the
charm that made   her   a   leader   in
British society circles.   Mer everyday

The men under arrest are Jacob
Dunn, 86, known as "Nig;" Warren
Dunn, 32, brother of Jacob, known aa
"Pete," and Seeley Davenport, 28,
known as "Snake." They were all living in huts at Ford Mine, an Iron ore

Attorneys declare that the principal
evidence against the men cannot be
used. Thla evidence consists of letters written hy the men since their
arrest, containing the same mistakes
In spelling, and the same character

federal law bars such writing frcm

When the fog hangs on the river, cutting bff the pilot's view;
When the trees are all a quiver with
the heavy, dripping dew;
When the lights arc blurred and misty
all along'-the North Arm shore.
And the channel vasuc and twisty as
lt never seemed before,
All the pilots on the river climb upon
their vessel's prow
So that they may sniff the cdor ot
the city garbage scow.
The friendly shore may vanish   ln a

The pilot may talk Spanish and the

The lights may fade and flicker and

Tho fog grow thick and thicker and
the compass chase Its tall.
But cne unfailing sign   of port   will

And tho pilots bless the Oder  of tho

"Well, I've given you all the money
I bave wltb me. I think It Is always
best when stopping at a hotel to deposit valuables In the safe. Then It can't
bt stolen." ,
With tbat Hr. Dingley bade tbe clerk
good nlgbt and went upstairs to bed.
The next morning about 10 o'clock
the chambermaid announced at tbe office that, bavlng knocked at tbo door
ef one of tbt rooms. No. 821, sbe had
received no reply and, opening the door
'with a pass key, had entered It, found
It empty and blood on the bedclothes,
which were much tumbled. Tbe clerk
remembered tbst No. 821 bad been assigned to Itr. Dingley. Ue went at
once to tbe room and found tbe condition as stated by tbe maid. '
Remembering bis conversation with
Dingley oo Ibe previous evening concerning lbe commercial traveler In the
checkerboard suit bo also recollected
thst the man bad paid his bill at tt

train leaving at 7. Referring to the
register, tbe clerk -found the drummer's name to be Rut-ton end at once
telegraphed tbe firm be claimed to represent inquiring concerning' him. A
reply was received that no sucb man
was In their employ.
Meanwhile tbe clerk questioned tbt
hotel porter, wbo lold blm tbst wben

be hnd lieen told by the owner tbnt It

noticed Ihnt on ��irrylng the trunk'out
In the morning its weight bad been
considerably Increased. Tbe clerk naked how much It hnd been Increased,
but Ihe porter could form no Idea of
tbe additional weight
The proprietor of the hotel, having
received enough Information concerning the ense to warrant a grave suspicion thnt a murder bad been com
mitted In his house, reported tbe mntter to the pollce.
An Inspector came at once nnd was
shown to No. 321. Taking tiwny tt
sheet tbst bad blood stnlos on It. he
submitted tt to a test wbleh Indl

the can* It was plain to tbe police that
Dingley hnd been observed to draw a
goodly sum front the bank, had lieen
followed ,and murdered, tbe murder
bavlng been committed possibly In
self defense while tbe thief was trying to steal the money. Tbe murderer bnd brought the trunk In order to
pass htmmelf off for a commercial traveler and bad used It for the purpose
of removing the body.
Meanwhile before the murder was
published a warrant was sworn out
for Dingley** arreat, and an officer
went to bb) housa to aerve IL II*

Lowering the Cost
Reduced to its simplest terms, the price of an article
is the cost of material, labor of manufacture, transportation, distribution, sale, and delivery���plus a profit on
each of these.
Let us take the case of a fountain pen tq show what
price is.
Phot the materials must he produced���th* rubber ia "Para���the gold
la Booth Africa or the Yukon���lrl-
diess ia Siberia.
Then all theee must be transported
te the factory. There the rubber is
vulcanised Into holders; the gold re-
. fined aad stamped Into points; the
Iridium tipped.onto the gold; and so
ea.
Tb* labor operations on a fountain
pen nm well over tbo hundred mark,
aad expensive machinery Is required
for almost every one of them.
Maaufactnrlng completed, the pens
���ro sold to Jobbers and retailers���
transported hundreds and thousands
of miles. Asd profits are taken at
���very step, remember that
Alter the whole sale distribution, tho

Bnppoao yoo have paid 12.69 for

what an imposing number of things
that 12.60 has paid for! Haven't yoa
a pretty clear Idea that U theta

At a meeting of representatives of

night dissatisfaction was expressed at

aiders who, It was further stated, received higher wages than those aBked
by Westminster candidates.
As a remedy to'existing conditions

Rumor   Connects    Minister   Without
Portfolio With New Job on Imperial Defense Committee.
Ottawa, Dec. 11.���Who wlll be the
Canadian minister representing the
Dominion on tbe Imperial Defence
Committee?
This question lias been asked re
peatedly since Mr. Borden made his
announcement in the House last
Thursday, and gossip has been bus;
with the names of various ministers.
Ther is every reason to believe that
the selection., when the time comes,
will fall upon Hon. G. H. Perley, of
Ottawa, the member for Argr-nteuii
and minister without portfolio In the
JWrlen Cabinet.
The responsibility Involved in accepting the Important duties attaching to this new-"portfolio" Ib likely to
be very heavy, but Mr. Perley ha.,
never turned- aside from big tasks
and has.never been a failure In hit
undertakings. Ills work during tin-
summer when he discharged the dui
ieB of actlug-prcniier and minister ol
mt re than one department, marked
him as a man of unusual admlnlstr;>
tive capacity und excellent Judgment
lie has been Mr. Borden's right hand
in many notable Instances, both be
fore and Bince the change of government.
Mr. Perley has practically freed
himself from active participation In
Ills largo business affairs, and has,
lhe leisure necessary for a position
which it Is proposed that he shall oc
oupy In LpndOll, as the Canad'nn min
ister In London wlll be necessarily
absent from Canada for the greater
part of the year.
Ignored the Hint.
The midnight stillness of tbe darkened psrlor was punctuated by a crash
Just overheod.
"Wbnwbawbst wns that, dutl-diid-

SANDS WINS CASE
AGAINST MILL CO.
Man Hurt In Accident Awarded $3000
Damages by Jury Which Censures
Defendant.
The case bt Sands vs. Royal City
Mills finished yeaterday and resulted
In the jury finding Uie defendants
guilty ot negligence in not safeguarding the rip saw which caused
plalutiff's Injuries and assessed the
damages at $3000. The verdict carne=
costs.      . . '
Plaintiff's Buit was for unstated
damages. Mr. D. Armour gave notice that he would apply for non-suit
on the ground that the saw in question was- not "machinery" in the
sense of the. Factory Act. and quoted an analogous case decided In the
Ontario Court of App>.J
Mr. McQuarrie said if tliat contention was upheld there was no machinery In a mill need be protected.
Mr. Justice Murphy in charging the
Jury first defined tie law of negligence uhdr tbo Factory Act. It was
