MAKING REM fOR
GOVERNOR GENERAL
Vancouver, August 23.���Two men
were seriously, one perhaps fatally
injured, when an automobile crashed
through, the railing of Strathcona
bridge, Hastings Townsite, late yesterday afternoon. Qeorge C. Schuldt,
supervisor of school construction for
South Vancouver, will probably die,
and W. A. McPhalen, a contractor,
of 828 Seventh avenue east, is at the
General Hospital, badly hurt Internally.
Steering Gear Failed.
Schuldt, McPhalen and W. Cavendish were returning from the B. C.
E. R. sub-station at Earls road when
the accident occurred. Near what is
known locally as Corder's bridge,
trouble with the steering gear was experienced, the car running off tbe
road. To avoid further trouble, the
car was driven slowly.
Reaching the structure the car
swerved from side to side, till, suddenly the light automobile struck the
railing at the deepest part of the
gully, and crashed through.
Cavendish was uninjured.
fESTIVIIY MARKS
OPENING OE HOTa
From   Roof to   Basement    Built     by
Westminster   Men   With  Westminster Material:   - -
The Premier hotel, on the corner of
Carnarvon and Eighth streets, which
1ms been in course of construction for
'the past several mouths, was thrown
open to the public for the flrst time
last evening, and at six o clock a constant stream of visitors made its way
through the building admiring the
many new teatures which the
hoslelery possesses.
Just to top oil the occasion, Mr. Al
Peters, the owner aud proprietor, re-
galeo a party of bis friends at a banquet heid lu the dining room of the
hotel. This well-known old-timer of
the Royal City, who has seen New
Westminster rise up from a small
country village to the city which lt
; now is, held down the chair ln Ills
usual style, ably supported by Mr.
George 11. Leaf, the present "mayor"
of East Burnaby.
George ls a personal friend of Mr.
Peters and during hla witty resjjonaa
to a speech, related his early days
In New Westminster, where he started out as a newspaper hoy.
"The arrival of the river boats In
New Westminster." said he, "were al-
' ways looked forward to, and I well
remember the days when Al Peters
was captain of one of them. He
always nad a kind word to the boys
who congregated along the waterfront and this latest venture of his, is
sur<i to be a success." '
Among the gathering were many o.
thosi* who had worked on the build ;
\ ing in the capacity of employer and
employee. Among them was Mr. E.
G W. Salt, the architect of the build-
. lng. who lt might be mentioned ws��
the architect of the old Premier hotel
the flrst which Mr. Peters built.
Others who responaed were CapL
ju Myers, Messrs. Jones and ******
��� lntyre. Constructor Smith of tne
Burnaby Plumbing and Heating Co.,
Charles Openshaw, H. Corder, Ball.
Eastland, Davlsou. Gulger, Richardson, Wallace and. Andrew.
The building has cost in the helgh-
' borhood of ��60,000 and throughout the
workmanship, none but union tabor
has been employed. A feature of
the construction Is that everything,
except the tile and glass, was purchas-
ed in No* Westminster, thus giving
local merchants the bulk of the trade.
The fltty-two rooms which are sot
aoart for guests are mostly spoken
for and, according to Mr. Peters, the
response among his old time friends
has beon more than he Imagined.
Just to give the affair a little feature, the band of Parker Bros, played
a short concert lu front of the new
building and later in the evening
gave another concert jrhieh was enjoyed Ty ibe crowd. '
BECKER A CANADIAN.
Was Born In Renfrew, Ontsrlo, and
Married in Thla Country.
Renfrew, Ont., Au'fvit 23.���Lleut.-
Beoker, the New York * llceman now
charged with Inspiring the murder of
Hermann Rosenthal in NeW York, ls
a nativu of this town. He was a son
of George Becker, who waa proprietor ofifce British hotel bere for many
years Lieutenant Becker married a
young woman from Frontenac county.
Committee  Appointed    to    Act With
Council  in  Drawing   Up
Proeramme.
The first definite steps In keeping
with the traditions of the Royal City
to prepare a reception for the Duke
of Connaught on his visit here on
September 21 were taken at the public meeting held to discuss the matter in the city council chamber last
night. The attendance was not what
It was confidently expected it would
be, but  what  the meeting lacked  In
numbers  u  made up for in enthusiasm.
The gathering on the whole was
representative of all public and other
bodies ln New Westminster, while
Councillor Goodland, of Chilliwack,
and Mr. Allan Purvis, interurban
manager of the B. C. Electric, were
present also. Suggestions as to the
manner of the reception that should
be given the Royal visitor were received at the meeting and referred
to a committee appointed to take care
of the arrangements.
The suggestion, made some time
ago, that the Duke pay a short visit
to Chilliwack and the Fraser Valley
during the time he was scheduled to
spend In the city, was brought up
by Mr. Otway Wllkie. Councillor
Goodland explained the scheme and
m motion favoring it lf time allowed
wbb endorsed by the meeting.
Mr. Goodland stated that the B. C.
Electric was prepared to flt up a special train to carry the Royal visitor
and his party to Chilliwack, making
a non-stop run In two hours. Mr. Allan Purvis, of the H. C. Electric, backed up Mr. Goodland regarding his
statements as to what the B. C. Electric would be prepared to do If the
Governor-General could be induced to
visit the valley and he further stated
that he had been authorized by head-
uuarters to make special arrangements for the transportation of tbe
visitor to and from the Fraser Mills
't an Inspection Of that place waa
Included In the royal itinerary.
Regnrdtnjr thr�� rattrrp*,W~me:irecFp-
tlcn to be offered the duke the meeting was opened tor suggestions. Mr.
Stuart Wade proposed that flowers be
used .profusely In the decoration
scheme of the city, that His Royal
Highness be presented with a bouquet by the Queen of the May and
her ladies in waiting at Queen's Park,
that n May dance he held, that a par-
ace of illuminated motor fishing
hoats be held on thc river near the
Kraser bridge, and that a massed
choir from New Westminster and
Fraser Valley points render selections lo the distinguished guest. The
children were not forgotten, and many
other suggestions were made.
Mr. J. R. Duncan put forward an
Industrial parade, while Mr. Hugh
Savage thought It would be a good
Idea to ask the Governoi^General to
review the National Reserve and
other military or semi-military bodies
in the city other than regulars.
Alderman Curtis suggested that the
f'raser bridge be brilliantly Illuminated.       ,
A ' letter was received from ��� the
stfhool board suggesting that the dujte
be asked to lay the foundation stone
of the new high school, and a communication was received from the
management of the Canadian Western Lumber Co. extending the city
an invitation to visit the Praser Mills
Acting-Mayor Gray, who presided a'
the meeting, slated that he ex.oected
that not only the husiness houses
would be decorated but also the residences.
After all the suggestions had beer
received a committee was appointed
to- aet In conjunction with the city
counc'l to make arrangements for the
reception of the royal partv. The
composition of the committee ls ss
follows: Mr. J. D. Tavlor. M.P.. Mr
Thomas Olfford. M.P.P.. Mr. Prank
MacKenzie, M.P.P.. Messrs. Duncan
Walker, Mvers. Wllkie. Purves, Cun

Col. Johnston, and ropresentat'ves of
the Trades and I.abor councll. Women's Councll and school board.
T3ie flrst matter to be taken up by

MORRICON PROTESTS.
Of
Against    Mlsdirsetsd    Criticism
Chinese Republic.
London. August 28.���Dr. George B.
Morrison, whose appointment aa adviser to President Yuan Shi Kal recently was announced and who is now
ln London, tn a letter to tihe Times,
protests against the gloomy and pessimistic views of the English newspapers concerning Chins.
He regards the execution of several
Hankow generals at Peking as unimportant. He says the men were condemned on unimpeachable evidence
and he scoffs at the idea that the
Tung Men Hui, Dr. Sun Yet Sen's
party, could contemplate an appeal to
force or impose its Views upon the
other-parties. ;
Dr. Morrison says that when V*
left China on August 8, affairs everywhere were Improving and he , gives
numerous Instances for his belief In
the stability of the Chinese republic.

Thousands Pay Last Tribute to Leader ef Salvation Army���
German Crmeror.
London. Aug. 23.���8o great was
the crowd which came today to view
the body of the dead General of the
Salvation Army, that it has been de
cided to open the doors of Congress
hall at half past five tomorrow morning. In this way many workmen who
desire to pay their respects before
going to work will be accommodated
A constant service of song went on
throughout the day around the catafalque, many students of the army
participating. Forty bands are-- to
take   part  lu   the   funeral   pi-ocesfUao.
Tho last tribute or respect was paid I
to tbo lalu Cieimral William Booth I)v4
many thousands of people today whei.
his  body   was  laid  ln state at  Congress hall, Clapton.
Among those who showed their appreciation of the evangelist's life-long
efforts to uplift the poor, were the
German Emperor, who sent a wreath
of white lilies, forming the Imperial
initial to be placed on the bier. It
wai accompanied by hls majesty's
card, surmounted by a crown. Thc
German embassy also sent a wreath.
NOT LIKELY TO COME.
Little Result From Efforts to Secure
Visit From  Flying  Legion.
Advices received irom Victoria bv
Secretary Myers of the Progressive
Association, state that chances look
small for the Flying Legion to visit
New Westmlnater during their tour
now In progress. This legion ls com
posed of one hundred members of thc
San Francisco chamber of commercr
who Ore visiting the Sound cities ami
alao Victoria and Vancouver.
The party will visit Vancouver on
Thursday, August 29, and as Xhe*
only atay there for one day It Is near
ly impossible to break the Itinerary
in order to allow them fo see' the
Royal City.
However, the situation is not closed
by any means, and last evening Mr.
Myers wired Mr. Foster, chairman
of the executive committee of the
3an Francisco chamber of commerce
to ask aid in changing the schedule.
The reply was that the arrangements
were In tho handa of the Victoria
people, who were the first to ask the
touring Americans to visit the capital city.
As only one day has been set apart
in Vanoouver little hope can be entertained that the legion will pay a
visit to New Westminster.
Two Yssrs for Receiver.
Winnipeg, Aug. 23.���Two years In

on E. P. Kemp tor receiving property
stolen from Canadian Paciflc ears by
George Kefyk and Arthur G. McKay,
who received one and three month*
respectively.
Trsds Conditions.
New York. Aug. 23.���Bradstreet's
tomorrow will say In part; Expansion is the keyword of the trade situation as tho month draws to a close
and buyers f jel the seasonal spur to
the laying ln of supplies for fall an��
winter. This Is. largely predicted on
tue prospects of assured or .expected
large crop yields, aad finds chief expression'In .the west, northwest and
southwest, where certainty has, generally speaking, supplanted, prediction. Collections show a tendency to
Improve and the money market gives
every indication of strength. Perhaps
the only possible check to full present
or near future activity ls found In
the gradually . enlivening political
cainvalgn.
C'jsoected Nenro Frsed.
E'gene. Ore.. Aug. 23.���Prosecuting Attorney Brvson todav directed
th�� release nf Harry Smith, a iheRr"
held at Medford*as a suspec* liv' the
Mildred Green murd��r case. Erani'na
tion by a Eugene officer showed lack
of evidence to connect the man with
I the case.
No   Word   Has   Been   Received   Yet
From  Ottawa���Fair Catches
���Good   Prices.
So far no word has been received
from the department of Fisheries at
Ottawa extending the date when the
closed season for fishing goes into
effect. The B. C. Canners' Association and the Fraser River Canners'
Association have made representations to Mr. F. H. Cunningham, tht
Dominion inspector of fisheries, urging the cancellation of the closed sea
son this year at least, but up to lat<
last evening Mr. Cunningham had received no word from Ottawa.
Unless this is received some time
today, the closed season will go into
effect this evening and will continue
until  September 15.
The sockeye season is almost ovet
but there still remains a lot of work
on the cotoes and humpbacks, and
unless an extension is given the can
neries: will be forced to lay off theli
employees, the fishermen will have u
seek employment elsewhere and i
total stagnation of the cannery busi
ness will be in force until September
15.
Last year, through the efforts of
Mr. J. D. Taylor, M.P., the closed sea
son was not operated through an order in council issued from Ottawa,
and the canners are hoping that efforts similar to thlu will have beeu
made bo that there will be no let-up
ln the industry.
Although the third year is always
expected to be a lean one, the reports from those interested ln the
fishery business show there have been
fair catches made during the season
and with the fishermen receiving
splendid prices for the flsh, no one
appears to be down in the mouth.
The sockeye season is nearing an
end and the last report from'the B.
C. Canners' Association shows that
Belllngham wlll only lift tbeir nets
three times a week hereafter, wblle,
Anaeortes did Hot raise ��t all yes- 1
terday.    The  report  Is as  follows:      /
Anaeortes. did not lift yesterday; j
Pheonlx cannery, 700 sockeyes yesterday; St. Mungo cannery, 275 sockeyes yesterday; Terra Nova cannery.
600 sockeyes yesterday; Scottish
Canadian cannery, 400 sockeyes yesterday; Imperial cannery, 700 sockeyes yesterday; Ewens cannery, fishing with spring nets; Brunswick
cannery, 400 sockeyes yesterday.

Vancouver, Aug. 23.���Leon Gwain
a Chinaman who came to this coun
try some six months ago, has been In
the General hospital for some days
past suffering from a species ot skin

were taken at a conference in the
Royal Alexandra hotel this morning
at which the duke, Sir William McKenzie, Sir William Whyte, A. M..
Nanton and J. S. Dennis, of the Cat-
adian Pacific Railway at Calgary,
were present.
Sir William Whyte explained afterward that the directorate ls not yet
fully made up and that the necessary
capital has not all been subscribed.
No specific plans for development, he
stated, can be taken until the organization is completed.
Imperial  Significance.
It  ls  certain,     however,   that the
company known as the British-Canadian Colonization Co. will undertake
a colonization  statement of imperial
significance.    For many    yeara   the-
Duke  of  Sutherland  has  carried on
colonization work on no mean scale
in Alberta and the larger concern will.
not differ greatly in its objects from
the original experiment.   The duke's
interests in Alberta, it is said, are
not to form a part or the new project, but wil? be retained by him as a.
private holding.
When   all   details are settled tbey

New Vork. Aug. 23.���Louis Heln-
weig, alias "Lefty Louie," has been
nations in the world and which would j located ln the suburbs of a south-
revclve about the Suez and Panama j western city, near the Rocky Moun-
canals, was predicted yesterday in tains, and two detectives of the dls-
Washlngton by officials who have' trlct attorney's staff have been sent
watched the development of world In- ��� to arrest the much-wanted gunman
terest In the Panama Canal bill, now in the Rosenthal murder case. The

rectorate of tie Suez Canal has   de-  thai murder case is pow being prob
cided to reduce rates   through   thatj ed  by   District   Attorney
canal.
In official circles this notice was
regarded as the first retaliatory step
against the free tolls provision for
American ships through the Panama
Canal. The announcement of the
nrorosed reductions through Suez appeared in inconspicuous notice3 in
American newspapers. The notice
was to the effect that after the first
of'next Vear^'thV transit *dues"'in'thei will  involve  many  others

Whitman,
wboZhaslei It became known that he
had obtained evidence Implicating a
police inspectpr and a civilian In
grafting.
While Mr. Whitman will not commit himself, it is known that he expects an offer of a complete confes
sion from a man "higher-up" in political circles whose story will lay bar*
the graft system and whose narration
��� ��� ��� who have
gambling
blackmail   on
Suez Canal will be reduced 50   een-1 profited    by
times,  bringing  the   toll   for loaded  and disorderly nous-
is
ships down to 6.25 francs. Th:
the precise equivalent to the $1.25
maximum tolls which the Panama
Canal act prescribed for vessels
passing through that waterway.
Prof. Emory Johnson, whose exhaustive investigation of the financial aspect of the Panama Canal, as a
special commissioner for the war department, formed the basis for thn
action of the congressional committee in fixing the toll rates ou the
canal, held that if the Panama project was to be a success financially,
and commercially, its tolls should be
lower than those of the Suez Canal.
This was on the basis that the
Panama route would secure a* least
a minor share of the shipping between E.'.rcpe and thc Pacific ports
cf Asia. Eyen lower tolls at Panama, be said, would not draw away
from the Suez Canal a large part of
the Oriental trade, because ur traffic
opportunities, the pr'c.e of cial and
other supplies which have a determining effect upon thc selection cf
routes.

Both buyers and 3eller3 were cut

took place in the schedule of prices,
'he business was brisk throughout,
and little complaint was made as to
shortage.
Potatoes still remain stagnant
even dropping another dollar a ton,
and little prospect of a better price
is looked tor.
The fall fruits and vegetables art-
coming in good quantities and there
will be no let up from now on.
Peaches still rem.iin slack, but this
s accountable for by the heavy rains
in the interior. The bulk of the crop
will be moving in a few days when
he busy housewife will be still more
busy preserving the fruits for the
winter months.
The dressed poultry display was
exceptionally flne yesterday, and
prices ruled firm.
Butter and eggs remained unchanged ln price but an advance is
looked for in the near future. The
auction sales were above the average
the dealers getting fair prices for all
they offered.

8000 to 10,000 families.
Interviewed    on the   question    Mr.
Stevens said:
"When they arrived I at once  consulted with Mr, Reid,' the head of the
Immigration Department here, as to
whether we should admit them or not
and it was then that we ascertained
that they were the advance guard of
a large coli/iy.    I at once telegraphed the facts to .the Minister of the In
terlor snd asked him to send a special officer to investigate the matter
before allowing them to remain.   Mr
Johnson, of Winnipeg, a special government Inspector, was sent out and
has gone into tbe matter very thor
oughly.   While I do not wish to an
tlclpate his report, I can   say. from
my own   observation   during the   Investigation, that they are a very superior  type of   Russian.    .The  seat
originated about 125 years ago and lc
an    offshoot of the   Greek    Catholic
Church.   In religion they are Protest
ants, exceedingly moral aud very religious,'    They have   a   very   democratic form' of  religions observance.
They have no priests, but have a system similar to what some protestant
sects have  in   this  country   whereby
Ciders are the chief spiritual   advisers.    The use of Intoxicating liquors
Is strongly condemned by them. They
express a desire   to have   Canadian
schools     and    teachers    established
among them, so that they can learn
the customs of the country and lan
guage.     They   have   also   requested
that teachers be   supplied   to   teach
the adults.    In   occupation they   are
just the type we   want���all   farmer?
and fruit growers."

Topeka, Kan., Aug. 23.���The daring
robber who was shot und seriously
wounded by his own revolver while |
resisting capture after he had robbed
the mall car on a Union Pacific train
last night, was still alive this morning, but the police had not yet learn
ed his Identity.
Railroad officials hoped soon to Induce him to disclose his name. The
train, known as the Denver Express,
and carrying heavy mall, waa leaving Kansas Cily when a man ran
across the depot ulatform and leaped Into the .all oar. J. D. Withers,
tbe clerk, urned and faced the man
who leveled a revoher at him. With
ers was commanded to bind and
gag his flve assistants, and obeyed.
The robber then went through all
the registered pouches, stuffing, the
rich packages into his pockets. Aftet
securing the loot he commanded
Withers to untie his comrades, being
careful to keep all the clerks covered
with his revolver.
At Bonner Springs, wbere the train
made a brief stop, the robber commanded the men to work the mall so
as not to attract attention of persons
at the station.
'       '    Hid in Berth.
When LawTence was reached, the
robber dropped quickly from the car
and ran towards the rear of the
train. Withers gave the alarm to
the train crew. A negro porter said
he saw a man with bulging pockets
enter a sleeper.
Conductor-M. K. Smith hastily sum
moned two Lawrence policemen, and i
all three followed Into the sleep'uJ
car. The robber had hid hiras'-lf 'n
in upper berth. Smith pulled aside
the curtain and made a grab for him.
The robber raised his revolver and
nulled the trigger just as Smith
caught hls hand and turned .it back.
The bullet entered the man's chre*
close to the heart. The conduc-.r
and two policemen dragged him into
the aisle. A physician on the train
gave him temporary treatment and
the train proceeded to Topeka.
Here the robber, unable to walk, wa?
placed In a hospital. The only cle-v
to the man's Identity was a letter mi
hiB pocket addressed to Mrs. Wil's
lxjnsberry, Medford, Or., R. F. D.

"PUNK"   WINTEMUTE.
It Is now seven years since Irving
Wintemute, popularly known as
"Punk," first entered senior company
in the lacrosse game. Brought up In
the Royal City, he handled the gutted
stick at an early age, and made such
a name for himself anmong the junior
that the Reginas placed him on the
line-up, where he distinguished him-
Wlf lu the goal-getting line.
lt was not long, however, before
Charlie Welsh got a peek at the
youthful player, and negotiations
were opened which culminated in
"Punk" being included ln the Salmon Bellies.
This was ln 1905. The following
year, July 1908, to be sure of it, the
team made a trip to tbe East, where
, they met the Shamrocks In a strug-
j gle for the Minto Cup. The result of
thai jerle# Is now past history, and
3lnce then the vice-regal silverware
has been resting ln the two cities of
the Paciflc coast.
"Punk" has always shown himself
a home player of the first-class, and,
while he had an off year ln 1911, his
work during the present season has
been a feature. A hard worker, he is
not afraid to bore In when necessary,
anq on' several occasions fejp has
scored Some pf the: prettiest goals
evej,seen. That his present*style' of
May Is satisfactory is born out by an
interview with Manager Gray, who
has the following to say oh the matter: -s'u
"Wintemute, ln my opinion Is playing one of the best games since he
lolned the club. His work on the
home this season Is on a par with
that of auy player tn the game today,
and while a man of few words, you

.Snaday by The National Printing and j led an English   party,  involves    the
Publishing Co., Ltd., at iheir office,  placing of boys on farn\s ln the west,
the farms to be under supervision by
a Canadian association co-operating
with British educational authorities.
Means by which the boys can acquire land from the association are
proposed, and lt Is, suggested that
they have some elementary farm
training before migrating. While details of such proposals ai this have
to be worked out with much care,
there seems to be a good opening for
some movement of the nature. There
ls no reason why there should tie a
superfluitv of bright young men in
the United Kingdom when there ts so
much opportunity tn Canadian agriculture. Any system that would ensure the boys a safe guidance
through the dangers of immaturity
Into vigorous Canadian manhood
ought to receive cordial welcome.
Some such closer relation between
the British educational system and
progress of the younger parts of the
Empire would be a valuable contribution to Imperial development.���Toronto Mail and Empire.

The prasa^ usually so silent about
ithelf, appekrs *i be adopting a new
attitude of late. Various editors.
both in interviews and at press conferences, have .given their views upon the functlons"'of a newspaper, the
influence of the advertiser upon its
news and kindTed topics, while at the
flraf. national' .newspaper conference
in the United States held recently at
Madison, Wisconsin, a acheme was"
evolved for endowing journalism and
so instituting a" truly independent
newspaper.
It was stated there that we are
now living in t'.ie age of privately
owned journals run lor profit, and
these Having noy/ almost reached
perfection. It seems that we are now
on the threshold of the era of the
endowed newspaper.
The plans ^outlined are interesting
in the extreme, but the cost of thc
endowment for a weekly paper oi
this nature is set at $5,000,000, and,
while an invitation has been extend

satisfactory.
If the Boers of South Africa; who
only a few years ago were at war
with Great Britain, are ready to help

Comment
on Sport
The report that Frank Patrick is
contemplating erecting a rink In the
Royal City has been hailed with glee
by the hundreds of fans who became
imbued with the game in Vancouver
last winter.
All will remember tne game when
the Westminsters defeated Vancouver for the championship of the Pacific CoaBt, and wtth the talk of a
oew rink, there Is little doubt but
what Westminster will secure possession ef the Stanley Cup, now held
by the Quebec team. So far nothing
has been done as to securing new
material for the teams. Most of th$
players are back ln the East, where
they have been spending the summer months.
However, as soon aa the call goes
out from Manager Patrick and hiB
brother, Lester Patrick, lt is expected that practically all those who
formed the three teams ln the league
.vill be in shape to continue the
game. It is understood that Patrick
is after the Cleghorn brothers. Both
these boys were with Art Ross' All-
S.ar team which visited the coast
late in the spring and their work
Showed them to be above the ordin
arv,
Mr. P. Patrick will place his rin'-
proposition before the citizens ol
New Westminster in the next few
days and the small amount he asks
as their share of the enterprise is
expected to be forthcoming with lit- |
tie difficulty.
Clean  Lacrosse in the N. L. U.
The summoning 'of four players on
the Tecumseh and Toronto lacrosse
teams to the police station as the result of a free-for-all in their game of
last Saturday ls hardly likely to help
the national game in the eyes of
sport lovers. The big four thle sea
son appears to have developed a
rough brand of lacrosse, for acoounts
if their games bristle with records of
tines antl penalties.
On the otlier hand the N. h. U.
ntayers may pat themselves on the
back for the penalties this season
'n the old league hnve been few and
far between. And, at that, the game.i
have been closer and should, therefore, develop a more strenuous style
nf the game. In tbe old days whll"
the games were fiercely contested
and rough, there was little of the do-
liberate dirty work which appears to
be tn vogue ln the Dig Four now. It
may be pointed out. that at that time
the game was In far different hands
than it is at present, and until men
of the same calibre return the national game will have a hard time regaining popular esteem.

WESTMINSTER DAILY NEWS
1M*W��H��
TODAY'S GAME Will
DECIDE CUP'S FATE
Both Tesms Fit and Out to Win
Vancouver Line-up Reported
UnchSnged.
Al) roads lead to Queen's Park this
afternoon when the Westminsters
will do their part to place the Minto
Cup on Ice ln the Royal City for the
season of 1913 at least. It wlll be a
gruelling contest from all reports, as
the green shirts are coming over
with a "do-or-dle" spirit to win the
remaining games ln the schedule, and
thus tie for place /ith tho Salmon
Bellies.
It is possible, but Improbable, for
the Royals have beaten their opponents at every stage of the game this
season! and with the exception of perhaps the dyed-in-the-wool fans of
Vancouver, have left no doubts that
the team of 1912 Is In far better
shape than that of last year.
The taking away of the silverware
to tlie city on Burrard Inlet left a
rankling In the breasts of the players at the end of last season, and it
was very evident when spring training commenced that nothing Bhort of
a miracle could assist Mr. Jones in
retaining the cup.
'1 hns it is that the people of New
Westminster should turn out en
masse this afternoon and see for
tin-in selves the great national game
once more. The attendance this season has been far from satisfactory
compared with other seasons, and as
lacrosse is about one of the best advertisements of a city it should stir
^ip enough spirit among the otyl-tlme
fans and also the younger generation
for them to pack the park this afcer-
noon.
On paper the race looks about al)
���over but the shouting, but it must be
remembered that the margin of goals
in the past three games has not been
any too good for the Salmon Bellies.
They have had to fight hard for their
victories and at no stage of the, proceedings have they been able to let
up in their play.
!t is probable that the Green Shirt
formation wlll remain unchanged,
and their home will always be a dangerous scoring factor.
As for Manager Gray, he leaves It
to the fans to make a guess as to
what players he wlll trot out. It
looks probable that either Pat Feeney cr Harrv Hyland will once more
be on the line-up. Harry has had a
three-week rest, while Pat was on
the sick list last Saturday,
All are In good shaoe now, however. The face-off will be at k3
r'clck sharp, with Jim Kavanaugh
handling the whistle.

Vancouver, August 23.���The V. A.
C. team, the amateur champions ot
the world defeated the New Westminster team this evening to the tune of
11 to 3. The i.oyaia set a last pace
from the outset, and Hume and
Storme punctured the net in the flrst
quarter followed by: one from the
.stick of L. Sangster.
The homesters evened up however,
'and half time saw the champions with
a three goal lead. The visiting defence played a good game ln the flrst
two quarters, but went off form ln
the remaining periods, giving Stoddard plenty of work to do Inside the
net.
Crookall. as usual, played a star
game for the V. A. C. netting four
of the eleven goals secured.

Victoria, Aug. 23.���A professional
lacrosse game between Vancouver
and an eastern all-star team wlll be
played here on September 28. That
was the interesting announcement
made by Con Jones, president of the
Vancouver lacrosse club, wbo waa in
the city yesterday.
Mr. Jones hsd a talk with L. A.
Wattelet, president of the Victoria
Baseball club, regarding the grounds
and, although terms have not yet
been agreed upon, there Is hardly a
doubt that the game will be played
at the Royal Athletic Park.
Under Jimmy Murnhy, the Tecumseh boss, the eastern team is coming to the coast for three games, two
of which will be played ln Vancouver. Mr. Jones bas paid a compliment to Victoria in having arranged
that the first one be played here.
This, he says, be Is doing tn order
that Victorians will be the flrst to be
introduced to Jimmy Murphy, who
wlll thereafter take up his residence
here, and ln 1913 manage a lacrosse
team here.
Mr. Jones is certain that Victoria
will have a professional team in 1913
and stated that ln all probability a
three-team league would be formed,
Westminster, Vancouver and Victoria.

Aeroplane   Is   Quickly   Provlne
Itself  In  Britain's Navy.
To the resourcefulness uf the British naval oflicer tliere is no end. Tin
band of four unassuming, fearless,
and keen officers wbo recently showed how tbe British Navy is studying
tbe science of aerial flight all went
out tn locate tbe King's yacht as lias
been told in recent press despatches
and all of them found it after thrusting their craft through dark masses
of fog. Kach machine was in the
air -for an hour or more; not one ol
tbem had a mishap. This, in summary form, is the story of the work of
the airmen, but the performances
were so exceptional, and the merit of
them so high, that no bald summary
should lie sufficient reading for patriotic people.
Commander Samson was first on the
move. He piloted the Short hydroaeroplane, and very few pe pie in
the crowd on the Nothe and on Weymouth front knew that he had started on his business.
They might well bs excused for believing tbat even au intrepid naval
officer would havs hesitated before
launching his craft into tbe misty atmosphere, wben u wind which at
times bad a velocity of from t./enty-
fiye to thirty-five miles an hour might
have carried him out of bis c urse;
and there were no landmarks it guide
him. Hut tbe naval aviator is male

The Felting Process.
The crinkly nature of wool is in
5��rt responsible for its felting now r,
out the most important factor in thi*
r��darJ is the scales which cover the
fiber. There are from 1,100 to 3.000
ar.these scales to the square inch ol
fiber, the wool wit'i the greatest number and most perf-'Ct scales being of
the best grade for felting. To be
placed in tb,' wool elass animal filfr
must possess thosj qualities which
will permit it to be used for felting.
Wool is felted by causing the scale*
of the fib^r to hook into each other
when thuy nre mechanically entangled, and the more firmly the scale*
grip each other ih�� greater is th*
degree of closeness which the woollen
thread attains.
