Special Meeting of Cabinet in London���Austria Determined
to Keep Servia from Adriatic-Albania Match That May

���Greeks Capture Saloniki.
London, Nov. 8.���With the approach i from  reaching  the  sea through    Al
of the end of the war In the Balkans
the diplomatic difficulties aro taking
on a formidable aspect. The situation
Is so grave that a specific meeting or
the British cabinet was summoned today to hear the views of Sir Edward
Grey, secretary of slate for foreign
affairs, as a result of his conference
with all the representatives of interested European powers, and also to
prepare a statement upon the 'ubject
which Premier Asquith will make at
the Lord Mayor's banquet at tha
Guildhall tomorrow.
Danger from Austria.
There is reason to believe that Austria has made it clear to Servla and
the powers that she never will consent to Servia occupying Albania or
the ports on the Adriatic.
Representatives of the powers recently approached the Balkan allies
wtth a view to ascertaining upon what
terms they would accede to peace. It
is believed that the only definite outcome of the European pourparlers
was tbe understanding that the Turks
are not to be driven from Constantinople.
Fall of Salonikl.
Athens, Nov. 8.���The Greek army
today captured Saloniki.
An unceusored report states that bo-
fore the Moslems evacuated the city
they slaughtered all the Christians
they could lay band ? upon. Another
report states that 27,000 Turks were
taken prisoners when the city fell.
France .la Perturbed.

Sofia, Nov. 8.���It is reported herc-
that the Bulgarian army has reached
Derkas, situated on the northern end
of the Tchatalja line and about two
and a half miles from the shores of
the Black sea. Adrianople is st'.U
hclding out. It Is believed the bom
bardment there has been suspended
temporarily.
Navy as Police.
Constantinople, Nov. 8���The commanders of the foreign warships in
the port assembled today on board thc
French cruiser Leon Gambetta to arrange for concerted action should
naval assistance become necessary for
the maintenance of order In the city.
Rear Admiral Louis Dartige Du Four-
net, of the French navy, presided aj
the senior officer.
The French admiral afterwards
ascended to the Galata tower to study
the lay of the land.
The Austrian and Italian war vessels and the second cruisers of the
other powers have not yet arrived.

PANAMA CANAI Bill
Shoots One Dead���Other Two Escape
with Mail in Hold-up cf Chasta
Limited.
Redding, Cal., Nov. 8.���The northbound Shasta Limited, the Southern
Pacific's train de luxe, was held up
and robbed, and one bandit was killed
at Delta, thirty miles north of here
tonight. Two companions of the dead
bandit escaped with the registered
mail. None of the passengers wert>
injured. A plucky brakeman named
O. Dan ford drove off the robbers and
accounted for the one killed.
The Shasta Limited stopped at
Delta to take on water and two of the
bandits boarded her. One climbed
over the tender and covered the engineer and fireman with a revolver,
while the other entered the mail car
and held up the clerk.
The brakeman who had dropped off
the train on the side opposite the sta
tlon saw an extra man on the tender
and guessed the situation. He rusheo
to the nearest store, procured a rifle,
and shot down the robber on the
tender. The other desperadoes leaped at the sound of the gun and rushed
to a nearby hill carrying the registered mall. There Is a good chance of
theta escaping to the nearby Sierra*. -

Young, until recently skipper of the-

and was cross-examined by Mr. J. D.
Taylor, M.P.
After the admonition of the witnesses on Thursday by Commissioner
W. Norman Bole, K.C, who Is conducting the Investigation, yesterday's*
session was a quiet one indeed, there-
being no verbal clashes between th��
men mixed np in the affair.
Mr. Taylor dwelt particularly on
the disappearance of certain quantities-
of paints and from the evidence given
yesterday it is quite possible that
more disclosures will be made in connection with the alleged loose way in
which tbe ship's stores were looke<t
after, and aS to bow they were ordered in the first instance.

Reply.
London, Nov. 8.���During yesterday's
sittings of the Dominion Royal Commission, a member ot the Manchester
Chamber of Commerce stated that
Australian wheat was by far the best,
ln the world. Hon. George Foster im'
mediately pounced upon the speaker
for proofs of his remarks.
"How can you expect a Canadian to
sit cool and listen to such a statement
unless you give us some proof? You

ourselves up ln Canada with the Idea
that our No. 1 Manitoba wheat was
the best wheat on earth; perhaps you

Page, who was one of the committee

said the question was a moral one. lt

consent to sign the bill, be said, and
at one time It had looked as though
he would reject It. The resolution and

Mr. B. G. Walker, president of the

briefly against the franchise as It is

"It Is nothing but a perpetual fran

WORST FLOOD FOR
YEARS IN ONTARIO
Heavy Rains Cause Rivers   to    Overflow Banks and Do Much Damage.
���Back  East.
Strathroy. Out., Nov. 8.--The worst
flood in years covers the lowland
through which the Sydenham River
flows. The river has been unusually
high all the fall, and the heavy rain
of yesterday was all that was needed
to make the stream overflow Its
banks.
The abutments on the second Car-
doc Street bridge and on one of the
Head Street bridges have been washed out, and these leading roads havo
been closed by Commissioner Folkes.
A large number of cattle and horses
which were pasturing on the flats
had to be removed to higher ground.
One odd sight today was a cow that
was forced to take refuge on a little
knoll while the flood raged all
around.
The rapidity with which the water
rose was remarkable; It rose four
feet In an hour and It ls now about
12 feet above normal. No reports
nave been received ' from the surrounding country, but it Is feared
that much damage will be done.
Thames Has Risen.
St. Mary's, Out., Nov. 8.���The heavy
downpour of rain last night has
caused the River Thames to rise no
to spring flood proportions, and it la
feared serious damage will result.
them, we have decided that we will
withdraw from it and agree not to
again become members of this particular organization."
The men have been reinstated and
work is going along in' proper order,
at Sherbrooke.
Calgary Situation.
Calgary, Alta., Nov. 8.���'l'he situation ls unchanged. The men express
determination to stand ilrm while the
company ls advertising in the local
papers and gradually filling the vacant
places, also sending experienced men
to some outside points. The men presented a copy of the schedule to the
superintendent yesterday. The truckers have not come out, and there ls
no trouble here otherwise.

Cl.ASS'FIED ADVERTISMENTS
BRiNG QUICK   RESULTS
Washington, D. C, Nov. 8.���Beginning tho execution of its extensive
plans for the permanent projects for
the operation of the Panama Canal,
the Canal Commission has awarded a
contract to the United States Steel
Products Company for seven million
pounds of structural steel work to cost
about $110,000.
The commission's plans are for work
separate entirely from the canal con- I
struction and include all the facilities I
that the government ia to provide for i
the repair cf ships, the up-keep of the I
vast canal itself,    the handling of the
coal and lit;uid fuel^ fcr shipping   and
permanent office biuld'iiKS and a compound for tbe small army of employes
which wlll be required to operate the
canal.
Among the otlier facilities to be sup
plied are one thousand foot piers for
commercial Use at Balboa, two
wharves and one pier at Chrlstobel,
besides a mole and breakwater, to bs
followed by fc*.:r ot!>er piers should
���lie tritffle justify- it.   '
Tliere V.ill be a great drydock ai
Balboa, one thousand feet long, capable ot accommodating any vessel that
could pass trohugh the canal locks. A
smaller drydock at Balboa will hold
vessels up to 330 feet.
Despite the Inclement weather the
attendance of farmers at the market
yesterday was well up to the average
of the past two or three weeks, and as
a result a good day's business was
transacted.
The outstanding feature of the trading was another upward bound lii the
price cf eggs, the hen fruit soaring
to 65 cents wholesale, a gain of ten
cents on last week. Seventy-five cents
per do/en was obtained by retail traders. This advance ts usual at this
time of the year, as hens are moulting and the spring pullets do not
start to lay until later in the season.
The poultry department's space was
again severely taxed to accommodata
the supplies received, crates of chickens being unloaded In all directions.
The demand for all varieties of birds
\va3 very gocd on account of the excellent quality of the fowl3. Prices ac
cordingly stiffened somewhat and
trouble was experienced by vendors in
disposing of their stocks.
Vegetables ns a whole were in largr;
receipts with the inquiry only fair,
cabbage, carrots and turnip stocks not
heing sold out al the close of the day'?,
business.
An excessively large quantity of
spuds were treated in a similar manner to the other vegetables.
The feature of the fruit section was
the large arrivals of all kinds and varieties of apples, mostly of good quality.   With the exception of some We-1
natchee valley stock, the demand \va.i |
only fair, ln thi3 connection it is note- l
worthy to mention that the buyers ap-1
peared to pay more attention to the ]
American  fruit,  with the result that
large  stocks of locally  grown  apples ]
were left unsold.
There wns a very good supply of I
mutton, veal and pork, though the |
supply of beef was totally inadequate.
An excellent business was transact- !
ed in all kinds of meats at quoted i
prices.
The florists had their usual display ,
of cut flowers and good stock of bulb.s ]
for sale.
The auction market was well attended. Seventeen cows were put up
for sale, but few were sold, the high
price of feed tending to niat-e the
speculative purchaser very cautious.

ATTITUDE OF LABOR
MINISTER UNCHANGED
Hon. W. T.  Crothers    Explains    Why
He  Refused Conciliation  Board
in C. P. R. Strike.
Ottawa. Nov. 8.���Whatever the outcome of the strike of the Brotherhood
of Railway Employees along the C. P.
R. system, Hon. W. T. Crothers, rain-
Inter of labor, will not recede from the
position whicli he now holds. Wblle
Mr. Crothers has issued no official
statement, he made it plain In an in-
tervlew this afternoon that no reconciliation board will be granted.
The minister of labor emphasized
'he nrint thst a board had been refused hecause the not did not apply to
the peculiar conditions attached to
the claims involved In the d'spute.
He maintained  that to    have    appointed a conciliation hoard would bo
io   defeat   the very ends which   the
men and thf
to attain.
"1 have boon negotiating with the C.
P. It. fcr eome months In an effort
lo seo'ire hotter terms nnd conditions
for the men," he said. "The company
mot *,v.e in a sympathetic way and has
alreadv given material Increases to
some of the men. The were con-
a'deripg further increases and en-
deavorlng to meet my wishes as rxr
as possible,
"In view of theae faets, I consider
that It would have heen wrong oh
principle alone, if on nothing else to
have Ignored the advances being made
by tho company and appointing a
board to deal with the matter."
This cov.ld only have resulted in
the company refusing to grant the
Increases and terms that they were
already considering favorably and
the men would, as a consettupnee.
be deprived of those Increases at least
until a board could report upon the
whole question.
Men Return to Work.

GUARD THE DOOR.
The words of Sir Richard McBride
at Ottawa regarding the defenceless-
ness of the British Columbian coast
and the need for rectifying this state
ot things "in the name of common
decency" are unfortunately only too
true, and it is earnestly to be hoped
that in the name of common safety
some speedy step will .tye taken towards the desired end.
As the premier points out, the enormous national assets contained in
the terminals and ports that are here
being developed demand some adequate protection. Were we not so Indifferent to war's alarms it might bo
realized by the bulk of the people
that no strategic position in the British Empire is left so totally at the
mercy of an invader as are the present and future terminals of the great
transcontinental lines of Canada.
Improvements lu transportation
have worked many miracles, and one
of tliem ihat is infrequently recognized is that we are no longer in the
toackbloeks, the sea is a help, not a
hindrance, to friend or foe. Relatively Eastern Canada is as near to the
English Channel in point of time as
was Gibraltar in Nelson's day.
But the Pacific has its own problems, and in late years many striking
developments are to be nbted. They
have seen the growth of Japan as a
world power, the gradual withdrawal
of British ships to home waters, the
birth of a new navy in the Australian
Commonwealth, an increase in German ships in the "Far fKBST*
The United States has many contingencies to tace upon the Pacific,
and, recognizing them,'has taken somo
steps to fortify her coast. fWe may
hope  that  the  pronouncements  upon
They Have No Such Coin There, Yet
Still They Use It.
Strangers in foreign countries always flnd some difficulty ln getting
used to the current coinage. In England they flnd themselves up against
quite a number of problems, not tbe
least of which ls the guinea, and tlie
difficulty ls not lessened by the fact
tbat tbe guinea ls practically obsolete
as a coin of the realm. The English
physician's fee ts always calculated as
oo many guineas, and the same thing
holds good at a sale of pictures or
whatnot at Christie's salesrooms.
The guinea ls a gold coin current for
21 shillings sterling, or about $.r>. but It
has not been coined since the issue of
the sovereign ln 1817.
The guinea bablt has been defended
by some subtle dealers on tbe ground
that it obfuscates tbe "foreign visitors
to British salesrooms."   On the otber
hand,   those   astute   cambists    bave
been known to growl at a few thousand sterling added to the price of a
valuable picture by the adhesion to the
guinea style of bidding. Tbe story runs
tbat the guinea was so called from tbe
pieces struck from tbe bullion captured
by Sir Harry Holmes In 10GO from 100
Dutch sail In Scbelling bay, tbe bullion
being from Guinea.    But Shakespeare
bas an earlier play on tbe word wben
bs mentions "guinea ben" In "Othello"
as regards tbe auction usage of tbe
guinea.   Tbere can be little doubt that
It ls a survival of lbe times wben tbe
extra shilling was treated as a flve per
cent commission, payable by the buyer.
Double commissions are, however, now
obsolete.���Chicago Record-Herald.

That
India Insects and Trees
Produce the Substance.
India ls the home of tbe Coccus Inc-
ca, the Insects that produce tbe resinous substance known as shellac. The
females puncture tbe twigs of several
different kinds of trees, among tbem
the bo, the blbar and the butea, and
the twigs become locrusted with a
bard, nearly transparent, reddish, resinous substance that serves tbe double
purpose of protecting the eggs and
Anally furnishing food for tbe young
Insects.
The lncrusted twigs are broken from !
tbe trees before the young Insects es-
caps snd ore thoroughly dried In the i
sun.    These   dried   twigs   sre  called i
"stick-lac," and from them shellac and
a dye analogous to cochineal are pre- j
pared.   "Seed-lac" Is the resinous con-
cretton   separated    from   the   twigs,  i
coarsely pounded and triturated with
water In a mortar, by which nearly all
of the coloring matter Is removed.
To prepare shellac the seed-lac Is put
Into   oblong   cotton   cloth   bags   nud
warmed  over a charcoal   flre.    When
the resin begins to melt the bags are
twisted,  and  tbe pure clear  resin ls
allowed to flow over flg wood planks
or the smooth stems of the banyan tree
nnd cools In tbe thin plates or shells
which constitute shellac.
Pure shellac Is very valuable.   It ls
Convicting a Thief by ths Ordeal of ths
Rsdhot Knife.
The ordeal of the redhot knife is
thus described by Abdullah Mansur (G.
Wyman Bury) as he saw It In "Tbe
f.��ad of Us." Tbe case was oue ot
tfteft from a caravan. Two young men
irere Implicated, one a palace slave, the
i-tlicr a young Arab, a native of tbe
Oests. Eacb accused the other, with
many ontbs and mucb mutual vlllflca-
Jon. Finally both Invoked tbe ordeal
jf the knife.
In due course a venerable Arab appeared, bringing the Instrument with
aim. His family for generations bad
possessed the hereditary rigtit to administer tbe ordeal. The knife seemed
i very ordinary piece of hoop iron,
shaped roughly Into a sort of blade
about eighteen Inches long. The name
and attributes of Allah were engraved
upon IL nnd it was titled with a plain
wooden haft
An attendant brought a bowl ot
water and a brazier of live charcoal, ln
which the knife whs Inserted. The
Arab youtb received the ordeal flrst
Ue repeated bts assertions of Innocence
ind, rinsing out his month wltb water,
put out his tongue, which was seized
at tbe tip by tbe owner of the knife.
Tbe Instrument, glowing dull red. was
drawn from tbe brazier, and with It
three light blows were struck upon the
victim's tongue, which was then Inspected. It merely showed slight
white marks wbere the bot Iron bad
fallen.
The slave's turn then came, and
whether he flinched nt tbe contact of
the bot Iron or bud failed to keep bis
tongue sufficiently moist I cannot say,
but the heat of the blade picked off a
small patch of skin and showed a
bleeding surface. According to tbe j
rules of the ordeal, that proved his I
guilt, and be was led away to durance
vile. ,
LUNA'S  MIGHTY  PEAKS.
Peculiarity of the Ring Mountains of
the Moon,
The moon ls really and truly a great
planet ot mountains, its whole visible
surface being dotted witb elevations of
curious shapes and of extraordinary
height We say "Its whole visible surface" and hasten to explain that we
make this statement simply because
the eye of man bas never seen but one
side of tbe surface of tbe moon.
What we see couvlnces us that the
little planet Is extremely mountainous,
for on the "end" exposed to our view
there are no fewer than 30.000 peaks.
varying in height from 2,00m tc t to
four ml'es. Wben we considei tbe fact
that this lunarian world ls oni? ose
thirty-second part as large ss theecrth
we can easily see wby It deserves tbe
title of the "planet of great mountains."
Tbere ts a peculiar thing about these
30.000 moon peaks. Eacb and every
one of them has a ringlike form, tbe
open end of the conical point being ot
greater or lesser diameter, according to
the height of tbe mountain. In a low
grade telescope these peaks resemble
true volcanoes, but wben viewed
through a blgb grade glass it Is seen
that tbe depression ln tbe center of tbe
queer "ring mountain" is often so great
as to be below tbe general level of the
surrounding country.
The depth of these depressions Is
calculated in a curious manner, by figuring on tbe relative shadows they cast
when the sun ls shining full upou tbem.
The diameter of these "ring mountains'* varies greatly, some of the
larger ones being W), 100 or even 150
miles, while the smaller look like post
boles when viewed through a good telescope.

Straw Hats.
Tbe straw hat is a relative newcomer
In tbe world of dress. It was not untll
1784. according lo I.es Nouvelles, that
It flrst appeared, nnd Its adoption was
originally exclusive to women. Men
did not make use of It until the Waterloo year, nnd the foundation ot tbo
great Alsatian Industry was only In
1SS4, when the flrst big factories were
erected. Our contemporary adds that It
Is not generally known tbat many so
colled "straw" hots are mnde entirely
of wood. Rut they are none the less
efficient as protectors agnlnst tbe effects of glare and sunshine.
Home Treatment.
"Ilere," began a woman known to
the writer ln the Cnnudlnn Courier���
"here's on article lu the evening paper
on 'Women's Work Kor the Feeble
Minded.'"
Her husband grunted, being In a reactionary mood. "I'd like to know," he
anld. "what women have ever done for
jhe feeble minded."
"They usually mnrry them, dear," replied bis wife sweetly.
Practical Consideration.
"You have no magnlflcent ruins such
as we bave tn Europe."
"No." replied Mr. Cumrox. "T thought

They're mighty nrtlstlc looking, but
they're too bard to keep In repair."���

SIXTY YEARS OF MUSIC HALLS.
/Richard Whltelng, in the London

"'TIS 60 years since, or more, that
one of the earliest music halU wm
opened at a house called the "Kins

tavern, though not ag iifcCiiall, on Pad-

the music hall as a place still attached to the public house, while in
volving no obligation to call for

the final whistle had blovn.
Starting oft with a rush the collegians were soon caging the sphere
and had notched 15 points to tlieir
opponents 7 when half time was called. The Y'8 had by this time got accustomed to the strange playing court
and with every man evading his check
crept up to' within striking distance,
coming through with a last successful
spurt as the gong sounded.
Tim Mahoney handled the game
without gloves and gave decisions Impartially.
As a preliminary the Y's second
team, playing four men most of the
game, nosed out with a win against
the college seconds.

PLAY TWO GAMES
IN CITY LEAGUE
Although the Greater Vancouver
quintette failed in their appearance
last evening in connection with th"
onenlng of the Y. M. C. A. bowling
alleys, local ten pin artists were out
In full force and made up two strong
aggregations to start off the winter
season.
Tom Mills was the first man to
eome through with a 200 score, while
Mill Willette holds the honor of making the flrst strike.
The new alleys were the subject ef
much favorable comment by the members of the team. After the engagement the bowlers and others interest
ed were regaled with refreshments by
a committee connected with the association under Messrs. Sovereign and
Decker.
federal officers late  tonight charged
with violation of the Mann Act.
Federal officers Searched the   south i
side several hours before Johnson waa !
found hiding in a hotel surrounded b.v
four nei;ro wards.
An attempt was at flrst made by tha
guards to prevent the officers from entering Johnson's rooms, but they wer?
pushed aside and the government
warrant was served on the prize fighter without serious difficulty.
At the Federal building, tears cam?
to Johnson's eves aa the officers put
handcuffs on his wrists.
"You dont' have to do this, I'm not
going to run away," he- said. "I'm
sqi'Hre  vo>  uiichi to know that"
His bonds had been fixed at $30,000,
but all the judges hud left the bu'M.
ing for the night. Johnson and his
attorney attempted to obtain ball, bu'
for a time it seemed as if the prize
fighter would be compelled to spend
the night in the county jail. The Federal judges declined to leave their
homes to go through the formality of
accepting bail.
After several hours' work Johnson
found a court clerk willing to act and
the prire fighter was taken to the
home of his aged mother on the south
side, who slimed the bonds, along with
several others, and Johnson was released.
Hockey at Central Park.
Central Park, Nov. 8.���The Burnaby

at Sapperton���City and Burnaby
on Moody Square.
Two important soccer games aro
acheduled for this afternoon between
teams lu the city league which will
have a material bearing, no deubt, on
the league championship.
At Sapperton Park, the Bankers
the present leaders, will oppose last
year's champions, Sapperton. Both
teams will be out at full strength, and
the Sappertonians are after the scalps
of the financial men for their defeat of
a month ago. when the Bankers won
by three goals to two.
At Moody Park the City eleven will
meet Burnaby. Tbis also should be
a thriller, as both aggregations appear
to be on an even plane. The gamei
wlll start at three o'clock, and with
no counter attractions, good crowds
ahonld be ln attendance at either
park. i
The City team wlll be selected from
the following: Guthrie, Barnes, Hogg,
McKenzie, Barclay, Scott, Robertson,
Hague, Ross, Dunsmuir, McLaren, McAllister, Moulding, Ryall and Hoffman.

My Dear Elsa���I think I cau supply
you with a beautiful new Idea to carry
out In the bazaar you are Kettluu up
for the benefit of your country
church, ln tbe fall you wilt buve lots
of autumn (lowers, so a Moral fortune
telling booth Will be quite wltliln your
resources.
Tlle setting that you wlll need for
the flower fortune booth Is u tent or
arbor or a screened off Nection among
tbe trees, lined with greenery. Simple
paper muslin stretched from tree to
tree will answer the pur|H>se charmingly aud cost hut a tri tie. A Iwwer nf

Some person Who Is consulting her fate.
Within ihe bower there should ne n
long table showing uli along lis length
little boxes or tru.vs illicit with damp
sand, covered over Willi moss und
stuck with liny sprays of autumn Mowers, lu the center should tie u very
large bowl filled wilh scented water.
Fortune telling patrons have Ihe
choice of three ways In wliich their future may be revealed and character
read. Tliere Is the fortune of single
tilossoius, there Is the fortune ot
hunches of Mowers, mid there Is lbe
fortune of tlle scented water. Of
Course In till three Instances the method of telling the fortune Is llie same.
Imi lbe appear.'!tn-e of the work Is
changed, nml there are lots ol people
vi-ho will wuul llii'lr fate foretold all
three ways.
Vour fortune teller will buve to learn
by heart tbe meaning of every flower,
grass and leaf thai she is using, whicb
knowledge may be found In most
books on floral lore or else���which ls
the clumsier but safer way���to tie small
notes to the stems uf the different j
kinds of flowers aud consult these. Sha
must be glib of tongue nnd be tible to
mnke the Interpretations sound convincing iind mysterious.
The patron picks out from the assortment any flower flint appeals to hlm
and bands It to the fortune teller.  If he
chooses a bouquet  he has the second
method  nnd  a   little  more  variety In
the telling.   In the fortune of scented
water the fortune teller takes from u
boxful of dried petals a handful of different kinds and sets them  iillout on
the wnter In the big bowl, nt the sums
itlme fanning them so well us to scatter
i tliem   over   the   surface.    When   the
1 water hns been sufficiently disturbed to
Icause a good deal of commotion among
jthe petnls nnd to mix them thoroughly
jche stops fanning and allows tlicui to
/come to rest.   Those thnt stop on the
|skle near the one awaiting bis fate are
tho ones whicb foretell his future.

far as possible. A circular or lenticular disk of bronze wns used at least
as early us tbe beginning of tbe fifth
century.
A standard weight must, of course,
be assumed for the great games. A
discus now In the Hritish museum,
which seems to bave been used, weighs
11 pounds 0 ounces, but whether this
wns the standard weight or not ls not
definitely known.
The thrower took his stand upmi a
slight elevation of limited circumference, where he could hnve a- secure
foothold and was prevented from running. Then, with a swing of tbe arm
and a corresponding movement of the
whole body, he burled the discus ns
far as possible.
Tbe value of the body movement
was recognized by the sculptor Myorn
In bis famous statue. "The Discolio-
lus." and is understood by the modern
athlete when lie swings the hammer or
even when be makes a drive at golf.
The Guest House In Asia Minor.
The guest bouse is a real Institution
in Asia Minor.   It is sometimes owned
by  on   individual,   but  is   usually   tbo
common propeity of ibe village.   To
this  guest  bouse,   like  the  travelers'
bungalow lu India, every traveler lias
a   right,   but   ns   till   have   the   snme
rights one may  have more company
tban   he desires.     However,  the  head
man   of  the   village   will   usually   arrange matters for the foreign traveler,
and the native guest will often courteously mnke wny for blm.    In tlie guest
bouse  Is one  large  room.  In  one  part
of wblcb our horses munch their bay,

SERVIA WILL NOL    .
RETAIN TLRRILORY
rriple Alliance Unwilling to Let Little
Nation Get Foothold on the Adriatic   Sea.
London, Nov. S.���The mailed hand
'Of the triple alliance has interposed
between the Balkan confederacy and
the fruits of its victory.
Reports of inspiring successes on
the part of the allies still come from
all parts of tbe theatre of war, but
���despite the announcement that Adrlanople has fallen at last as the prize of
Bulgarian prowess and that the troops
of King Ferdinand have already captured part of tbe Catalja defences, the
key to Constantinople, and notwithstanding the tremendous price In lives
paid by the gallant Servians at Ku-
mancva aud the sacrifices of the
Greeks, it looks now as If Austria,
backed hy Italy and Germany, ls determined lf possible; to preevnt one of
the allies, Servia, from realizing her
centuries-long ambition of a port on
the Adriatic Sea.
Servia ls insistent that this be part
of her share of the spoils of war, and
Vienna last night, as a "ballon
d'essair," issued a warning to Servia
that she should not make unreasonable and Impossible demauds. To this
King Peter's government makes thc
proud reply:
"Servia Is no longer a vassal, but a
power, entitled to hold her treasures
she has won at the expense of tbe
blood and lives of her soldiers," and
notwithstanding the fulminations of
'the Austrian cabinet the Servian army
still continues its march upon Duraz-
zoma, unheeding the threats of the
dual  monarchy, and Ignoring the re
plete the question of intervention is
Btill uncertain. Nazim Pasila telegraphs asking the government not to
despair to carry 'on the war to the bitter end, aua ne strongly advUe3
against mediation. The same advices
come from Prince Halim, the Sultan'j
son."
The Turks are counting on the expectation that the Bulgarian forces
are enfeebled after their enormous exertions cf the last fortnight.
"Klamll Pasha has assured tha
Armenian patriarch he need have no
fear of a massacre of Europeans.
"After a meeting of the council of
ministers last ulght it was announced
that Turkey is willing to sacrifice
much In order that an armistice may
be arranged. Tho French ambassador
is making vigorous effort3 towards
peace."

TALKS TO STUDENTS.
Henri Bourassa  Explains   His   Views
on Naval Question and Defends
Opposition.
Montreal Nov. 8.���Before a crowd,
mainly composed of McGill students,
which filled to capacity the assembly
hall of the McGill Union, Henri Bourassa this afternoon explained hia
vlewB of the naval question and defended his opposition towards any contemplated contribution to the Imperial
authorities.
The occasion was the reorganization
of the McGill Canadian Club, of which
nothing had so far been heard of this
season.   The speaker pleaded wiih hi3
hearers for the development cf a
ported"agreement of ItaTf"and Austria | ***** fplrlt���of Canadian unity rather
to obtain autonomy for Albania. King Ithan the following of those who fan
moving   hourly
have taken

Pettr's    forces   are
nearer the Adriatic.
The Montenegrins, too,

banian port.
As an Indication of her attitude,
Austria has authorized the correspondents to state that neither she or
Italy will ever allow Servla to have
a port on the Adriatic, the spokesman of the cabinet emphasizing the
statement by declaring that, however
ready the dual monarchy Is to recognize Ibe triumphs of the Balkan
league nnd to establish a basis for
future friendly understanding, she will
never depart a foot from the principle
of no outlet on the Adriatic for Servla.
"Moreover," he said, "Italy and
Austria are unalterably determine!
that Albania must be autonomous or
remain a Turkish province with a
Christian governor."
Vienna feels that Servla will giv3
way to the triple alliance, but the
Servian press continues unanimously
to urge a march to the sea.
"No mara" (to the sea), ls the na-
ned  the  flames  of  what  he  termed
"false sentiment," for their own enda.
While Mr. Bourassa did not deliver
such an outburst of impessioned
oratory as those who attended his address to his fellow countrymen are
accustomed to hear, he was granted a
most attentive hearing until the very
end of an hour-long address.
Besides explaining his own  views,
Mr. Bourassa attacked what he term- ....       ..

some time, were astonished.   One day, I met
one of our leading hotel keepers, who had been
cured by Giu Pills, and be advised me to try
them,  so I  bought  two   boxes  at my

Before I had used one box,, I felt a big
��� change for the better, and before the second
box was gone, I was completely cured.
I assure you I can hardly believe it for

boxes of Cin Pills cured me.

THE MAYORALTY.
Alderman Curtis Saying Nothing���Mr.
T. J. Trapp Wlll Not Run.
So far no persons have declared
themselves In opposition to Alderman
Grey on the mayoralty ticket of the
1913 civic elections in January. Thera
are rumors that the citizens league
will bring out Bome dark horse, but
so far no hint has been given of tha:
body's Intentions.
Alderman Curtis' name has been frequently mentioned as a candidate but
this gentleman remains' Immovable
and will not commit himself. He acknowledges, however, that ho has been
approached to run for mayor but has
nothing further to say.
"No such honors for me," was the
statement made by Mr. T. J. Trapp
when asked by the News If he had
any intention of entering the mayor-
alty contest against Alderman Grey.
More than this the school board chairman was not prepared to state.
QUESTIONS UPON
ROPE AND PAINT
(Continued from page one)
HASTEN INSTALLATION
OF LIGHTS ON STREETS
As the result of a tour of Inspection
made through the city by the mayor
and aldermen, accompanied by the
city electrician, Mr. Bowler, twenty-
five arc lights will be installed on a
number of street corners. In addition
to this a number of smaller lights will
be placed on some of the streets.
Alderman Lynch, chairman of the
light committee, stated yesterday that
every effort would be made to erect
lights and have them burning before
the season is far advanced. The
equipment for the larger lights is expected to arrive In ten days time,
while the smaller ones will be placed
in position at once.

constituents which he hopes to have
settled before the House opens for
session on January 16.
He eypects to hold the first of a

is at the extreme western -point of j

Captain Young���It was bought aud
paid for.
Pressed for a more direct answer,
the witness stated he purchased tho (
paint from a local hardware firm, a
representative of whicli will be called
as a witness next week. I
That ended the evidence of Captain !
Young. j
Wharfinger Speaks. |
Mr. Wilfred Philpot, wharfinger   at i
the government wharf, was the next I
witness Called.   He explained his po- j
sitlon, having held it for four years.'
His duties were to look after the tide
guage,   steam   hoisting   crane,    and
make trips with the engineer. He was
never ln charge of the stores and waa
sometimes away from the wharf with
the engineer three weeks at a time.
He had found the doors of the Samson storehouse wide open on three
different occasions, and the third time
had reported such to Captain Young
and Mate Boyd.
Several times he had noticed supplies lying on the wharf when he arrived there early In the morning,
which stores had evidently laid there
all night.
At one o'clock the Inquiry adjourned
until Monday morning at 11 o'clock,
when Mr. Philpot will resume Ills evidence.
In fairness to Captain Young a
correction should be made to the report which appeared in this paper of
yesterday when lt was stated that the
mats which Mate Boyd alleged were
tn use at the homes of Captain Young
and Wharfinger Philpot were made
and brought from Victoria. The mat3
were manufactured on board the Sam
son by the crew. In order, states Captain Young, to keep the men busy.
