Silenced Batteries.
Strongly fortified positions were occupied by the Turks on Detchitch
mountain, which commands tbe road
to Scutari, and reinforcements were
brought, resulting in a general engagement, which extended along tho
line for several miles. King Nicholas
remained at his headquarters at
Rodgorltsa, while Crown Prince
Danilo directed operations at the

Austria Causes Sensation,
The statement of the Austro-Hun-
garian foreign minister, Count von
| Derchthold, to the Hungarian delega-
tion Today tbat Austria Is prepared
to guard her Interests in tbe Balkans
has caused a sensation in European
capitals.
The Frankfurter Zeitung publishes
a report that Greece will withdraw
from the Balkan agreement and mobilize, but tbls is hardly credited here.
Both Greece and Turkey are trying to
purchase the Chinese cruiser Chao-
Me, recently built at Newcastle.
The mobilization of tbe Bulgarian
army Is complete. Five Russian aviators arrived today to operate with the
Bulgarian forces, according to a news
agency dispatch from Sofia.
Italy Tires of Turkey.
Paris, Oct. 10.���The final negotiations for peace between Turkey and
Italy have been delayed by the hesita
tion of Turkey, says a despatch from
Rome to the Temps. Italy has fixed
Saturday as a limit, after which lt

Poles May Revolt.
Paris. Oct. 10.--Reports of a pos3i
ble Insurrection in Poland have resulted ln secret Instructions belug
given financiers In Russian Poland to
transfer their documents and valuables to Moscow, according to a St
Petersburg despatch to the Temps.
With definite word at last received
to mobilize in their native country
tbe 350 reserve men of tbe Green
army now residing in Westminster

ments for their departure from Canada. Tbe local men will hold a ineet-
ing this evening to decide various
matters ln connection with their
transportation to their native country.
The call which arrived yesterday
will affect In tbe neighborhood of
75,000 Greeks residing in Canada and
the United States. About 1200 will
go from Vancouver, and several thousands residing In other places in the
Dominion are also expected to
migrate.
Tbere was great Jubilation among
the members of the local colony last
evening when the "despatches from
the seat of war reported that the
Turks had suffered defeat at th��
hands of the Montenegrins, wbo were
flghting singlehanded tbe cause of the
Balkan peoples. Tliat tbe Turks wlll
be defeated ultimately ls tbe emphatic
opinion held by the Greeks residing
here, who think that nothing but victory is assured the opposing forces.

Winnipeg, OcL 10.���As the Macdonald bye-election campaign draws
to a close it increases ln heat and
viclence. For the moment the issues
are lost sight of ln a tossing to and
fro pf the respective leaders of argument and Invective over tbe arrest of
two alleged vote manipulators by tho
provincial police. Sir Redmond Roblln and hla followers declare tbe constituency is being flooded by gumshoe politicians from Saskatchewan
and the Liberal leaders retort with a
protest against tbe high-handed treat
ment of honest citizens.
In the course of a telegram of protest sent to the Manitoba'premier today, Messrs. Edward Brown, E. D.
Martin and Frank O. Fowler challenge
tbe aspiration of Sir Redmond on the
volunteers from Saskatchewan and
ask the electors of Macdonald to
"register tbeir opinion on the Russianizing of our constabulary and the
degradation of our minor courts of
justice for which you are directly and
personally responsible.'*
"Since Magna Charta was wrested
from a tyrannic king," says counse'
for D. H. Wllkinshaw, whose case ban
been enlarged to the afternoon of eleo
tlon day, "there has been no such Invasion of the sacred domain of British Justice and fair plaj-. It is polit!
cal lynch law."
On tho other side tbe governmenl
forces claim that Sullivan, who was
arrested at Carman, baa agreed to return to Saskatchewan rather tban face
the charge laid against him.
The government organizers predict
they will sweep the riding and will
get a majority of from a thousand to
fifteen hundred. They claim they
have the solid French vote. While of
fering no figures those who have Mr.
Richardson's campaign in hand express themselves as quite confident
of winning the seat. But tt ls all

Edmonds, Oct. 10.���Burnaby is not
going to sit down and watch other
municipalities bold successful flower
shows. This was evident last evening
when a representative body of the
residents of Edmonds and East Burna
by decided tbat the summer of 1911
would be the right time, and tbe
municipal grounds at Edmonds the
right place for tke holding cf sucb
an event.
Tbe meeting was held In tbe municipal ball wltb Mr. A. S. McPherson
ln the chair, and another gathering is
slated for the evening of October 23.
In the Interim, a strong committee
composed of Messrs. A. L. McPherson, T. B. Harrison, A. S. Patrick, W.
S. Rose, H. W. Mansfield and W. S.
Vivian wlll proclaim this idea throughout the length and breadth of Burna
by so tbat all horticulturists will be
present at the gathering.
The boards of trade and Progressive associations of both New Westminster and Vancouver have been
asked to send a delegate to the meeting and the support of the Burnaby

After hearing the evidence,
greater part of whicb had been related before the coroner's jury. Magistrate Edmonds, yesterday afternoon
committed tbe two convicts, Wilson
and Smith, to stand trial at the next
assizes for the murder of Guard Joynson, wbo was killed at the Britiao
Columbia penitentiary on Saturday
afternoon last.
Tbe bearing began at 3 o'clock and
the accused men were brought in by
the pollce patrol, heavily shackled
witb leg and wrist irons. Smith is of
small stature, little more than flre
feet in height, and looked a pigmy
against Wilson, wbo is a well built,
strong featured man. Both were in
their prison garb with closely cropped hair. Smith was wearing a
plaster On his right cheek covering
the wound which one of the guards
inflicted upon bim while shooting.
Wilson's right arm was in a sling, his
shoulder having been injured when
Guard Elston shot at him after he
had thrown down the keys of the inner gate.
Asked Questions.
Both appeared nervous at Uie outset
of the hearing, but later ia the proceedings recovered their composure
and showed interest in the testimony
submitted by the employees at the
government institution, even going ao
far as to ask several of the witnesses
questions connected with the shooting.

Mr. Mallns, spokesman of the delegation, said that In reality Its rates
had been reduced and not advanced
as understood by the trustees, bat
that when tbe buildings had been insured previously 66 per cent, of the
fating bad been for brick and the remainder for frame, while now tha;
trustees were calling for insuranco
on 26 per cent, of brick buildings and
74 per cent, were frame buildings. It
seemed that a higher rating bad to
bo placed on frame buildings. Ha
also added that the rating had been
made not in a haphazard fashion, but
on a scientific basis by thoroughly experienced men. On being challenged
he agreed that the rates were lower
In Vancouver, but he replied that protection afforded buildings was greater
thaii bere,
Trustee Reid disputed Mr. Malins'
statement, declaring that though Vanoouver might be about 2 per cent,
ahead of this city on flre equipment,
It had nothing on Westminster as fir
as water pressure or hydrants were
concerned. In reply the leader of tho
deputation stated that reports on the
standing of the two cities had been
made by high priced men who knew
their business.
Arguing from the universal schedul*
which the Board of Underwriters
usually based tbeir charges, Mr. A. W.
McLeod stated thet the rates offered
were too high. He declared tbat the
board companies were giving mucb
lower rate* In other cities ln Canada
wbere tbe flre and water protection
was on a parity with Westmlnater,
and that they did not give the same
credit to the local school buildings
as they did elsewhere, Tbe companies, he stated, citing one or two
as Instances, were charging 60 oents
on frame buildings In Kew York state
towns, while tbey demanded 90 cents
here.
Mr. Mallns armed that lt was a
known fact that thing* In B. C. wore
different to the Bast. The board
thanked the delegation and Mr. McLeod for their Information. No action,
however, was taken nor any opinion
expressed a* to what procedure the
trustee* would follow.  '

NOVEMBER 14 LIKELY
DATE POR SUMMONS
Ottawa, Oct. 10.���It wa* stated In governmenl circles todav
that If It Is round to be at all
possible parliament wlll be
summoned for Thursday, November 14. It Is felt that If the
work of tbe session Is not commenced by the middle of November vr>rv little will be ac-
comnl'shed Mfnre the adlourn-
ment b��foie the Christmas recess. For thst reason parliament Is more Hkelv to be called for Novniber 14 than for
November 21.
M, K. Cowan, counsel fbr the Alberta aud Saskatchewan boards, took
some exception to the date on the
score tbat he might not be able to
be preaent, but bis protest did not prevail with the board, which desires the
counsel for tbe federal and provincial
governments and the Winnipeg board
of trade will aualyize aU the facts and
figures a* presented by the railways
and come back to Ottawa prepared to
proceed with the crosa-examinatloi,
with thc railway witnesses.
The most interesting statement
made during the day was tbe declaration of Vice-President and General
Manager Hanna, of the C. N. R., tbat
the C. N. R. could not stand anything
In the way of freight reduction. He
quoted figures to show that the sur
pluses of the company are not large
and sald that If the rates were reduced they would be wiped out and
probably more.
Mr. Hanna further stated that the
west Is prosperous under the existing
rates, more prosperous as a matter of
fact than any country In the world.
He also expressed tho view tbat lt
would not be right to deprive the C.
P. R. of the privilege ot making legitimate profits In view of all that the
company ha* done to develop the Dominion.
J. E. Dalrymple, vice-president of
the Grand Trunk, wa* the last witness examined by the railway board
today. He A A not go into detail, but
said he agreed with the evidence submitted by the C. P. R. and C. N. R.
The railways have not closed their
case, but wlll submit more evidence
at the later sittings.

W. A. DUNCAN.
City Clerk.
City Hall, October 10, 1912.
London, Oct. 10.���Sir William Flen-
ders, receiver and manager of the Dominion Sawmills Limited, a British
Columbia Company, had an eager
body of debenture holders before him
yesterday when his scheme of reconstruction was considered again. He
said that the company's acreage contained approximately 300,000,000 feet
of merchantable standing timber, but
the margin of profit was very small.
Stocks which were left over last season were badly graded. Certain American manufacturers continued to
dump lumber into Canada at low fig
ures, but the courts now held that
some classes of this were liable to an
id valorem duty. When his represen-,
tative visited the undertaking las;
year he found disorganization and
lack of proper supervision. It waj
esimated that the net profit this year
would be ��20,000, compared with a
previous loss of probably over that
sum.
Sir William Flender, however
thought it unlikely that they would
be able to pay more than a part of
the debenture interest for a few
years, and in the best interests of thf!
company it might be advantageous to
withhold any interest for a term or
five years when, by careful management, the company might be put on a
sound financial basis. Inquiries wen'
being actively pursued in Canadi tr
secure a body of directors there
would command confidence.
Loud applause greeted a shnrehold
���t's assertion that the late 1 endon dl
rentorate was absolutely Incapable
and the company's solicitor said tha'
***? fnfl'tv rf trvlng to manage -,-
QrltNh Co1""ib:a bi"*inf>es from Lon

The scheme rf reconstruction was approved unanimously.
EXPRESS COMPANIES
WOULD BE RUINED
If Rates Proposed by Interstate Commerce Commission Go Into Effect
���$33,000,000 Loss.*
Washington, Oct. 10.���A net loss of
| $33,000,000 a year in the revenues of
the express companies and the railroads would result from putting Into
effect the express rates proposed by
the Interstate Commerce Commission,
according to figures submitted by the
companies to the commission today.
This loss. It was estimated, would h<i
divided between the express and the
railroad companies. It was asserted
j by counsel for the express companies
that the commission's rates practically would put their clients' out of
business. Mr. Walter D. Hines, repra-
sentlng the Adams, American, Southern, United States and Wells Fargo
companies, said the proposed rates
would cost the express companies
5.87 cents on every dollar received by
them, "thus destroying all profit and
producing an enormous deficit." The
deficit, he said, for the companies he
represented would total $6,743,622 annually, measured by the present volume of business. According to Mr.
Hines' figures, the "proposed rates
mean a reduction of not less than 11
cents In the total revenue per package on the express business In the
United States." Several represents
tlves of shippers were heard.

Has Bsen Spreading All Over Europe
and Now Menaces Canadian
- Farmers.
Victoria, Oct. 10.���Potato canker ls
the latest danger with which farmers
,are threatened, according to bulletins
Issued .by the Ottawa experimental
farm, and forwarded to the provincial
department of agriculture in order
that a warning may be Issued her.*.
The disease Is not yet known to have
reached British Columbia, but is lia
ble to acc.nlre a domicile In the province any day unless precautions are
taken.
Potato canker reached Canada last
year, when, owing to the shortness, of
the crop there was large importation.!
from Europe. Some of the Imported
tubers were used as seed, wltb tbe
result that the disease has been Introduced. The Dominion Government has
Issued an order prohibiting the Importation of potatoes from Europe, Newfoundland and the Islands of St.
Pierre and Mlquelon. Mr. W. E.
Scott, deputy minister of agriculture,
is having prepared a number of lantern slides Illustrating the disease.
The slides are to be used In lectures
to the farmers' institutes throughout
the province.
Potato canker, which Is known scientifically as chrysophlyctls endobi-
ota, ha.s br-en spread'ng In Europe for
the past thirteen years. It Is of so
virulent a nature that not only wlll It
destroy the whole crop where It has
eained a footing but It will poison
the land so that no potatoes can b"
grown on It for five or six years without being infected.

"1 am not," he said, "a believe; ln
tbe local navies scattered all over the

News Will Be Popular   In   Canada-

London, Oct. 10.���It ls almost certain that the Duke of Connaught'*
term in Canada will extend another
year, says Truth, which generally is
reliable in such matters.
Continuing. Truth says:
"It Is very desirable that he shouli
be at the head of the Canadian Government whert the Prince of Wales
and Prince Albert visit Canadi In
1914. The extension of the Duke's
term will be very popular In Canadi.
The Duchess of Connaught and Princess Patricia are coming to England
for a few weeks' visit in April of next
year. They will visit the Crown
Prince aud Princess of Sweden at
Stockholm, and it is probable that the
young couple will visit Canada next

This  Year's  Harvest  la  Heaviest on
Record���No Need Now to Import
Potatoes.
Prospector   Returns    Empty   Handed
After Three Years' Search, But
Is Confident of Success.
Washington, Oct. 10.���Never before
bave the great cereal crops of the
United States been so bountiful aa
those of this year. Records or production tor almost every cereal have been
surpassed, ln some instances by millions ot bushels.
The October report or the department ot Agriculture issued today
shows that spring wheat, oats, barley,
rye and' hay all have exceeded the
best record productions, while the
crops ot corn and potatoes, rrom present Indications, also will be the
greatest ever when harvested.
Speaking of this great showing
made by the country's rarmers, Mr.
James Wilson, Secretary of Agriculture, said:
"The crops this year are the heaviest on record. The season has beeu
favorable, but some credit ls due to
tbe wide efforts made in late years by
the Federal Government and the
states to help farmers throughout the
country to get better returns rrom
the average acre."
The world has been searched ror
better plants by the Department of
Agriculture, and its scientists haya
been creating new plants by hybridization.
Twenty-eight million pieces of literature have been sent out by the de'
partment in addition to the advices
from the state stations.
More than three million bushels or
corn, almost a billion and a hair
busbels or oats and three hundred and
ers who return to the Union Jack thirty millions or bushels or spring

"One of the chief dispensers or such

Imttat'on, yet they appear to be taken

Nova Scotia and New Brunswick.
Dawson, Oct. 10.��� A man who   bas
been prospecting on the very farthest
reach of the continent for gold  was
in the city yesterday.    It was Forbe.i |
McRae, of San    Francisco, who    has i
been   at   the   head   or the "McRae j
party" on the Arctic slope ror three j
years, looking    for an alleged    rich
placer strike.      The  first  is said  to I
have been made thirty years ago.   Mc
Rge sayB  there is no    doubt It was
made, but he has been unable to relocate the place.
"I know such a find was made, and
that the exact location was ascertained; hy the original finders," says McRae. "I consulted with Wlfley. an engineer and mining man or Kokomo.
Colo., the discoverer. He was an engineer on the C. P. R. thirty years
ago, and with seven other surveyors
they descended the Mackenzie. Aboul
50 miles up the Mackenzie delta and
to the westward they were making a
tour from the coast toward the Mac
Venzle, on their way back, when they
found gold ln extraordinary quantities. I have been there, and othera
have been there, looking fof It, but I
must say we did not flnd It
"Imet Mason and Anette, and tbey
told me they had located lt. and 1
had them come out and go In with me
but we could not find It. I know that
Wllfley can go there and locate It tor
me. Being a surveyor, he ascertain
ed the location scientifically.
"Burt, Who was In the country wltb
us, is on his way' out. Mrs. McRae
was there, but came out via Rampart
House this spring, over the ice. Mrs
McRae Is a niece ot the rate Charles
D. Lane, cf Nome fame.
"I have a gasoline power schooner
at the mouth of the Mackenzie, with
which I planned to go, to the Copner
Mine river thia spring, but I called
off the deal until nert year, when 1
shall go In with a gasoline schooner
from San Francisco. Wood Is plentiful cn the Arctic coast, but the gasoline ts the proper fuel for a boat of
the kind I want to take. The waters
nf the Arctic thefre are wide open two
months ol the,year.
"Nothing has been heard of Darrell
the missing trader, since he left Jac-
ii'Ot's place. We feel sure he perished somewhere on his trip to the eastward.
"Some good gold-bearing quartz
was brought to Macoherson by prospectors from Great Deer lake. They
found it at Lake bav. on the Great
Bear lake. It seemed rich in gold.
The Douglas party located the roci*
there.

"If our party finds the Wlfley property and locales anything worth whll?
there will be plenty Of time tor the
others to come afterward. On the
whole, the gravel deposits on the Arctic slope are shallow and do not prom

EMIGRATION PROBLEMS.
The number of announcements that
considerable bodies of European and
otber p*ofclea *re about to enter Brit-
ish Cblumbla, shows no sign of
diminution, and If all that is proposed comes about our composition
will prove ere long to be more than
kaleidoscopic.
Yesterday* It was stated in Vancouver tha* Uie recent visit of a representative of . the Maltese government
will result ip a thousand natives of
that interesting isle making their
homes in this province. They are, ot
course, British subjects, are anxious
to work in $he mills and employment
has already1 been promised a number
���ot them.
The problems of emigration are
many and Complicated, and as long
as no definite stand thereon is taken
by mutual consent of the Imperial
government and the governments of
the overseas dominions, those problems are likely to remain not only unsolved, hut tp become even more difficult of solution.
It is of interest to note that while
-we hear of activity on the parts of
���various agencies in directing emlgra
tion to Canada from all parts of the
world���Russians, Boers and what not
���we hear very little of those schemea
tor building up the future nation by
the settling within our hounds of the
peoples cf the British Isles.
True, a Rcntleman has but lately returned from the coast after    making
arrangements for the   emigration   of
ex-soldiers,   but   the   same   difficulty
which confronts the bulk of his men,
is that present to thousands of worthy
settlers from the British    Isles.    We
have the land and the work for them,
they have not the means to get here.
It may be advanced with reason that
tor  every  British   immigrant   to Canada there are at least ten others who
would come had they t'.ie means ar.d I
the iiron^ise  of  work to come  to.
These difficulties appear    to    have
been met by some private and some
Rovernment effort." 'It   la high    time
that the various emigration  societies
now existing in the homeland formulated some campaign with the object
���cf inducing the proper authorities to
take    Jhe.. ;matter    up.      W'e    need
settlers   badly,   especially   those  who
wiil till the soil, but the more we can
get of the same stock as those who
hewed, out homes for themselves    ln
the Ontario forests, the better will it
be for British Columbia and for Canada.

with the swiftness of a stroke of lightning. One day we are told that all is

War   conies    by    telegraph   these

For Canada to propose to keep her

BURYING  THE   EVIL   PAST
Now that Canada   and the   United
3tates are preparing to celebrate the
ono hundredth   anniversary   of peace
between  the  two countries.  It Is of
Interest to note the "entente cordiale"
of French and Russian patriots whicii
was brought about recently to honor
in mutual amity the deeds and fat"?
of the brave men of the campaign of
1S12 In Russia.    In this case France
and Russia joined in celebrating the
centenary of the great battle of Borodino, fought near Moscow on Sept. 7,
one of the bloodiest conflicts In history,  when,  of  257,000  men engaged,
between 70,000 and 80,000 were killed
or wounded.   After Borodino, the Russian  troops  withdrew  from  the field,
but they retreated in gocd order, and
Narolecn's    claim    of    victory    \va3
empty enough.      In honor ct the men
who fell at Bored.no, a French society
had fi monument carved by a sculptor.
M. Paul   Eesanval. but    unfortunately
the ship on  which he sailed with his
work vai lost in the Baltic with all
cn board.
Both Frar.ce and Rtigsla find much
to thrill their patriots with pride In
the history cf thn early years cf the
nineteenth oentury, France because
of lhe triumphs cf N'apolr.on and his
grand army, Russia because of the
fact that ��he administered the flrst
great renulse to the most stupendous
figure of his dav. If victorv restert

"Those who think that the Great
Mother of nations ls dead or dying
are mistaken. The people of Britain
are of the same sturdy stock that haB
built up' the Empire and I am sure
that lf peril should come tliose of the
British race will be as true to their
trust and firm to defend their Ideals
as their forefathers werb of, old. And
that ls saying a great deal."
Mr. Borden, iu using these word*,
is but voicing the thoughts of almost
every  Canadian  who  visits   the   old
country.   The old mother renews her
youth like the eagles, while the prophets of doom pass away and are forgotten.     Britain    today    was    never
more virile, never more   alert    and
never more susceptible to new Ideas.
To the student of men  and   thing.*
there ls no place on earth so stimulating to thought and   speculation  as
Britain's capital.   The actual amount
of business transacted in London and
the distribution of goods whicii Is effected from  London  is simply amazing.    And this vast business is dons
under conditions wllich to the Canadian    accustomed    to    ample   spaces
must appear sadly lacking In elbow-
room.   As a matter of fact London ac
complishes Its gigantic tasks with surprisingly little friction. London is not
merely   the   financial   centre   of the
world;   It  ls  the  distributing centre,
par excellence, of the   Tood and   raw
products of the earth.    Upon LdhdOh
converges wealth from almost   every
country under the sun. from the trop
ies  to the polar regions.      And with
this  exchange London's  life   reflects
the various nations with wliich It does
business.   No city In the world Is a1*
cosmopolitan, none so genuinely and
naturally picturesque.
London's transportation svsteVn Is j
medley of motor-busses, horse-drawn
busses, street cars, underground ral
ways and tubes, yet fcr general efftci
ency. smooth running, low fares, frequent service and rapid transit then
is nothing like it anywhere else. The
London tubes, which form a veritable
spider's web beneath the metropolis
are more like the work of a magician
than of mortal man. Oa London's
tubes and other underground railways
were carried in 1910 no ion than 500.-
970.010    passengers,    wh'le    on     th
ceeded the West by a wide margin,
the tons forwarded per mile of road
ln Ontario and Quebec exceeding by
58 per cent, and 48 per cent., respectively, that originating In Manitoba,
the largest division from a tonnaga
standpoint in the West.
It was shown thnt for the year ending June 30, 1912, almost four .million
tons of grain were   forwarded   over
the C. P. R. lines, of which 73 per j
cent, was transported at furtherance 1
rates, which   tho   company   claimed 1
were the lowest ratea In the world on (
a like commodity for a like service
Twenty-five per cent, of the whole of
the traffic forwarded from the com-1
pany's western   lines   (exclusive   ot
British Columbia)   constituted   grain
forwarded to the East at these low
rates.
The British Columbia traffic was
similarly analyzed to show the proportion of ore tonnage forwarded I ln
that province amounting to over
eleven hundred thousand tons, or ��2
per cent, of the total traffic.

What Occurs When Two or More Peers
Want to Speak at Once.
There  is  no rule   against a  dozen
peers, or the entire peerage for that
matter   rising   and    addressing    the
Lord   Chancellor   at  the  same   time.
The Lord Chancellor has no power to
select the  peer who  shall speak.    A
Lord Chancellor's leg may be pulled,
we imagine, hut his eyes can never
be  caught.    For all  he can do, two
peer?  wishing to  adclres)  the  House ;
and refusing the give way one to the
otlur could stay on their feet until otfe
of them dropped from exhaustion.
This is.no exaggeration. Within living hiemory two peers engaged in an
adventure which at first threatened to
Idevelop into a tiring down contest af-
' ter thp manner ol Goldsmith's dancers. It happened In 1884 on a warm
July day and was very entertaining
whUe it lasted.
The  two were  Earl Granville and
Lord Cairns.   Both rose simultaneously to speak.   The two peers stood facing each other at the table, and each
tried to speak, while their partisans
kept     shouting     "Granville!"     and
"Cairns.'" in an aristocratic manner.
Lord  Selborne  sat   op. tbe, woolsack
helpless.  The scene might hsve lasted
until  either Earl  Granville or Lord
Cairns had  fallen  fainting had  not
Lord   Beauchamp   earned   immortal
fame by creating a precedent in tbe
House of Lords.   He moved, in a tone
of anger, that Lord Cairns be heard,
and Lord Cork, in' a similar tone. mow.
ed that Lord Granville be heard.  *
A vote was taken, and Lord Granville won by a majority of one in a
Sioux City, Iowa, Oct 10.���When
Uilo C. Dodge, a fireman on tbe Milwaukee Railroad, looked out cf the
cab window between Jefferson and
McCook yesterday, he saw a child
playing on the track. Realizing that
the engineer could not stop the train
in time. Dodge jumped out on the
running board and mado his way tn
the pilot. Just as the engine was
rushing upon the child. Dodge reached out with his foot and kicked the
little one to safety.
The child was Gerald Allard. the 2
���ear-old son of a farmer. He (anded
in a ditch, and the only souvenir of
his escape from death was a few
bruises.

V. C. Man In Workhouse.
There is at present in the infirmary
of the Cambridge (Eng.) workhouM
an ex-noncommissioned offlcer of the
army who holds the Victoria Cross,
and is a member of a family of soldiers, three brothers, two sons, and
eight nephews either serving or having
served in various brunches of the
army.
The man is James Collis, who was
born in Cambridge in 1J51. and enlisted in the 46th Foot in 1872. He
was transferred to the R.H.A., and
went out to India, where he arrived
just before the war broka out with
Afghanistan. Collis went to the front
with Major Blackwood and E Battery
of B Brigade of the R.H.A., and was,
present at the disaster at Maiwand,
when the British force was almost annihilated by Ayub Khan.
Collis, who was then a gunner, loaded sick and wounded on his gun and
made for the British base, which he
reached after great difficulties. He was
nearly cut off oh the way. and to save
his charges unlimbered his gun, under fire of which the wounded were,
removed on the limber. He was relieved by a troop of Bombay cavalry,
under Gen. Nutlall. who complimented him upon his bravery.
- Shortly afterwards he made a daring trip with despatches.
' Twelve months later, at a parade.on
the Poonah racecourse, Collis had his
name called out and had the Victoria
Cross pinned on his coat by Lord
(Roberts (then Oen. Roberts).
Collis afterwards joined the Bombay
fiolice.ln which.he became an inspec-
or, and  experienced various adventures.   He returned to England, where ,
bis health gave way, and he finally \
decided to make for his native place, jor

��� Ottawa,   Oct.     10���The     Railway
Board   delved Into another mass    ot
tacts and figures submitted by the C.
P. R., In connection with its defence
of Its western   freight" tariffs in   the
western rates case.   The C. P. R. did
not close Its case, but towards the end
""of thfe' slttlnlifltheBBeS tdrWKStift?
pany gave place to Mr. D. B. Hanna,
vice-president of the Canadian Northern system, who. was-being examined
by Mr. F. H. Phippen, when the board
rose/tor the   day at 6 o'clock.     Mr.
Hanna   agreed    with   Vice-President
Bdsworth of the C. P.R., that water)
..^competition   controls  the  rate   sfttia-*iv-
tion In the East.   He said if lt'wern
not for this competition eastern ratej
would   be   increased.     He   declared
that In many ways the cost of operation Is higher in the West, owing to
the weather    conditions, the   higher
wages and the greater cost of fuel.
Mr. W. B. lanigan, freight traffic
..manager in the West, .was the star
witness for the C. P. R. He maintained that the western rates were reasonable, and that the through rate on
grain to Fort William ls the lowest in

possession of the telegrams as received and It called the witness to show
why the original message sent cannot be produced. It was during this
period that McManigal and the McNamaras formed the "flying squadron
of dynamiters," the government
charges, often sending McManigal out
alone and equipping him with a suitcase filled with explosives to await
orders by telegraph as to what he
ahould blow up.
When James W. Noel, one of the
counsel for the government, asked j
why the telegrams were not produced.
Senator Kern, counsel for the defendants, asked the witnesses: "Yon
don't know that any such telegrams
ever existed, do you?" The wltnesse-i
replied they could not remember Individual messages.
The telegrams, Mr. Noel said often
were sent by Hockin, now acting secretary-treasurer ot the International
Association of Bridge and Structural
Workers, and at piesent on trial, to
McManigal'a home ln Chicago. They
shifted him at times, the attorney
aaid, from Chicago to Louis, from
Cincinnati to Indianapolis and from
Chicago to Holyoke, Mass.
H. A. Knight, manager of a telegraph ofiice at Salt Lake, was th.i
first witness to produce a telegram.
The telegram wa9 dated Oct. 10, 1910,
and was purported to have been signed by J. E. Munsey, known as "Jack
Bright," one of the defendants. According to the government's charges,
J. B, McNamara, after blowing up
"The I.os Angles Times' Building on
Oct. 1, 1910, hid for :\vo weeks In
places Becured by Munsey. J. J. McNamara. then secretary of the Ironworkers' headquarters In Indianapolis
was anxious about his brother after
the I.os Angeles explosion.
The    telegram    as     identified   by |
Knight  and   Mra.  Charles  McCarthy,
who  waa  the counter    clerk at Salt
Lake City, follows:
"J. 3. McNamara, Indianapolis:���

BALKAN LEAGUE HAS
PLANS WELL LAID
Danger of General  European  War
Pointed Out���How Statea Hoodwinked Powers.
Is
London, Oct. 10.���The Daily Mail's
special correspondent in Vienna telegraphs:
"Europe stands on the threshold of
a general conflagration in the Bai
kana, an event which, viewed from
Vienna, the half-way house between
Europe and the near east, is fraught
with the gravest possibilities In view
of the all too Imperfect accord at present .existing between the great powers. '
"From a source In the closest touch
with the Balkan governments I have
received Information which I transmit, fully conscious of Its gravity.
"I am in a position to state that
the action of Montenegro in breaking relations with the porte and declaring war was not a hasty action,
inspired by the personal ambition of
Kipg Nicholas. It was the first move
ln a most carefully pre-concerted
plan, elaborated by the Balkan Leaguo
and Europe. Tomorrow will witness
consecutive steps In the plan.
"While the great powers were dickering over the Austrian and British
objections to the Intervention proposals of Premier Polncalre, with the
result that their Intervention became
practically useless, the Balkan governments, leaving their representatives abroad completely ln the dark,
tranquilly pursued the way prescribed
by the provisions of a secret agreement between them. It is possible
that King Nicholas anticipated events
a day or so ago, but lt was part of
the arrangement for Montenegro to
3trike first, as the information of th ?
Balkan allies showed that the Turkish troops were weakest on the Montenegrin frontier.
"The next move in the plan will be
concerted action by Bulgaria and Servia. Their ministers at Constantinople may already this afternoon have
demanded their passports or wlll Ao
30 tomorrow. The rupture of diplomatic negotiations will be followed by
a formal declaration of war, whereupon the Bulgarian army, with a Servian
force on Its right wing, will Instantly
take the offensive. It is not Impossible that a Servo-Bulgarian force Is
already drawing near the Turkish
frontier'.
"I have the Impression that eventi
have been delayed bv the slowness of
the Greek mobilization and that it- Ib
this circumstance and not any intention on the part of the Balkan states
to admit the intervention of the powers that has prevented a declaration
nf war by the Balkan League up to
the present time and may yet delay
the climax by twenty-four hours.
"I  have reason to believe    the answer of the Balkan states to the representations   of Russia   and Austria
will  take the following form:    They
will point out that    during the past
few days their relations with Turkey I
have become so bad that they can not |
be  remedied  by the  intervention  of
the great powers and    will add that
the note of the powers does not contain any guarantees adequate to assure the prompt and efficient execution of the   reforms In   the Turkish
European provinces.
"The great powers have been hoodwinked by the Balkan League like a
creenhorn over a horse deal. While
European diplomacy was working
miracle* of speed in patching up an
accord between the powera to facill
tate Intervention at the earliest po*
sible moment, events in tbe Balkans
were marching steadily on.
"Tbe King of the Montenegrins will
bave a hearty laugh at his headquarters In the mountain fastnesses If
ever he reads the ingenious disquisition* of the Vienna press regarding
his alleged desire io seek the halo of
the King of Servla."

Situation at Sofia.
William Maxwell, the   Dally Mail's
special correspondent at Sofia,  wires
under yesterday's date:
"Premier Gueschoff today admitted
to me that the proposals of the powers were unsatisfactory, seeing tha!
they did not give guarantees.
"He added: 'We bave lost so many
hopes that we cannot draw back now
without something substantial.'
"This sentence describes both the
difficulty and danger. The government dare not recede. The people do
not trust the powers, who talH once
more of carrying out the solemn engagements made by them thirty years
ago. The least they expect Ib mat
Bulgaria should share In the supervision of reforms. This, said the pre
mler, was under consideration.
"The premier .still professes hopes
of peace though'he could not suspend
the preparations for war.
"There is no pause in the war preparations. This afternoon the flagt
of twelve regiments were blessed by
priests of the Greek Church in the.
palace {grounds. The solemn pictures
que ceremony was witnessed by the
king and many people.
"The councll sat till 8 o'clock to
night to consider the powers' note
The Greek and Servian ministers conferred with the president of the coun-
o'l. Nn decision was arrived at as to
framing a reply. I have Rood author
Ity for saying that probably no reply
will be given, as the form of the note
demands no reply. It is more probable that an ultimatum will be presented to Turkey In a few days."

With tha object of fostering the
sheep breeding Industry throughout
Canada, the Dominion Sheep Breed
ers' association, under the auspices of
the federal government, are holding
sales of selected and graded sheep In
cities adjacent to farming districts.
Yesterday afternoon several hundred
sheep wero put up for auction In th-
stock yards at Queens park, and
though the Interest shown was not as
great as lt has been ln some place?
the sale proved a reasonable success.
It was at It* last session that the
government passed an appropriation
to encourage this Industry which has
been conspicuous by Its absences'in
all of the western provinces.
The sheep are retailed by tbe asso
elation, and ln case the purchase price
of the stock ls not realized the gov
