CONFESSES CRIME
Greenfield Had Suicide Pact
With Eight   Year Old
Stepdaughter.
Killed Her, But Failed to Slay Himself���Identified by Pictures
In  Papers.
SASH AND DOOR
fACTORY GUTTED
San Bernardino, Cal., Aug. IS.���
Charles E. Greenfield, aged 25, who
killed his eight-year-old Btep-daughter.
Vivian Greenfield, in a rooming housa
nt Venice Tuesday afternoon, was captured In Cuyamonga Pass today, and
Is now In the county jail here. He
will be taken to Los Angeles tomorrow.
Seated in his cell, Greenfield freely
admitted that he had killed the girl.
His confession was made in a voice
that clearly Indicated, officials said
that the man was not insane. It was
apparent, however, that he was laboring under a terrific strain.
Blames Wife.
"We had a suicide agreement" sad
Greenfield In describing the murder
of Vivian. "I suggested lt long ago
on acount of the treatment both of us
received from my wife.
"When we left home to go to Venic?
we had agreed to jump off the end of
the pier Into the ocean. After we
reached the pi��r we saw too many
people there, and decided to go to a
rooming house, where we agreed I
should cut her throat and then eud
my own life.
"After securing a room, I drew the
razor from m.v pocket. Just as I was
about to draw the blade across
Vivian's throat she looked up at me
put her arms around my neck and
kissed me, and said: 'We will bofh
soon be gone.'
Lost His Nerve.
"I drew the blade across her throat
and seeing the blood, lost my nerve
and could not kill myself."
At this point Greenfield's voice bo
came little more than a mumble. Recovering his composure, the prisoner
said he knew but 1'ttle of what happened after he killed fhe g'.rl. He de
clared that he walked to lx>s Angeler,
that night, wandered around the
streets for several hours and then
started to walk to San Bernardino,
where his tatber lived.
The proprietor cf a store at Etiv.an
da recognized Greenfield from nic
tures he had seen in the Los Angeles
papers when the fugitive asked fnr a
loaf cf bread early today, and notified
the authorities.

ROYAL CITY WIU
FORM CADET CORPS
Principal   McMillan   Explains Scheme
to High School Boys���Prospects
Are Promising.
Within a week's time lt looks very
probable that the Royal City will
boast a cadet corps. A ineeting was
beld in tbe high school building last
evening, and, although the elements
were directly against such a gathering, enough boys were present to
warrant Principal McMillan explaining the whole scheme, and from the
way the boys manifested their Interest, the formation of such a corps Is
just a matter of time alone.
Mr. McMillan in hls talk to thjio
gathered there, explained that the
arovlncial government and also the
Dominion government were behind
this cadet movement, which Is not .only growing in Canada but in Gre.it
Britain and the other colonies. ..lie
cited the visit of the Australian cadet*
to New Westminster in the fall cf
1911, and how this feeling of reclnro-
city was being carried out by a iv*
turn visit of the Vancouver is&f'Ct
corps to the Antipodes at the present
time. If the scheme can be cot un-
a company thirty strong at the outset,
of Mr. McMillan to have the boys In
such shape as to be able to mak? a
.showing in the coming celebral'on
when H. R. H. the Duke of Connaught
will pay his first visit to the Royal
City next month.
This, however, depends on whether
the uniforms can be obtained in tint-*
to fit out the boys, but, before th'
meeting called for next week, Mr. Mc
Millan hopes to be able to state infinitely whether there iB still time l*>
participate in the celebration.
When seen after the meeting, Mr.
McMillan was in a hopeful mood regarding the formation of a corps in
connection with the high school boys.
The drills would have to be arranged
he said, so as not to Interfere Vvi h
the regular sessions of the scnccl
but he felt confident that this wj lid
be  well  looked  after.
RECORDS BROKEN

LIQUOR SELLING TO
INDIANS CONTINUES
George Dahl Sentenced to Six Months
for Offence���Ten Cases in the
Police Court.
All records were broken at the city-
treasurers office yesterday when $90,-
000 was collected in taxes. Yesterday
was the last day when property owners could take advantage of the rebate,
system, and it was not until 11 o'clock
that City Treasurer J. J. McKay called
a halt for his assistants at the city
hall.
This sum is tbe largest collected In
a single day in the history of the city,
and is more than double that of last
year's final day. A very small frac
tion remains to be collected, and this
Is held as showing that the ratepayers
jump at a chance to claim the rebate.
and also as an indication of the general prosperity of the city.

The docket at the police court yes
terday morning was an unusually
heavy one, ten cases tn all being dis
posed of. Drunkenness was tbe most
prevalent offence.
Most Important among tbe cases
called was tbat of George Dabi, who
received a sentence of six months at
hard labor for supplying liquor to
Little George and Chief George, two
Slwashes from Surrey. George was
seen by a policeman in the net of pr,r
veying spirits to the red men, late
Wednesday evening, on Front street,
and as the constable did not at flrst
note any monev change hands, a close
watch was kept.
Soon after tne supply of spirits had
beccmeexhausted, one of the red
men prouueed a dollar and a half,
which he tendered to Dahl with the
request for more firewater.
Dahl left his coat behind htm for
security, and departed for the nearest
vendor of spirits. He returned a few-
moments later with tne fluid, and
passed it over to the two braves. The
watching constable then took a hand
in the proceedings and marched the
trio to the lockup.
Dahl pleadsd not guilty to the
charge notwithstanding the conclusive evidence submitted by the officer.
The two Georges were dismissed
with a five dollar fine apiece for being in a state of intoxication.
Robert Lochart, a vag, was given
one month in jail.

PRINCE OE WALES
COMING TO CANADA
With Prince Albert���May Return Next
Summer Via New York After
Month's Stay.
London, Aug. 15.���It is stated unofficially, but on good authority, that
arrangements are being made for the
Prince of Wales and his brother,
Prince Albert, to pay a private visit
to the Duke of Connaught in Canada
during the summer vacation next year
under the charge of their tutor, Henry
P. Hansell.
The Imperial princes are expected
to remain ln Canada for a month,
during which time they will see something of the rising cities of. Western
Canada and indulge probably in a.
short big game shooting expedition.
The two youths njny return home
by way of the United States, staying
lor a few days at New York before

vlnor of the cadet movement, has .il-

McMillan  whenever the  time  is ripe
for him  to cotne over to New Westminster.    It is proposed to organize
i company tllirty strong at the outset,
which will be enlarged from time to
time.
Application will be made within 'i
few days to the commander of thc
military forces of British Columbia
for necessary equipment, and it is also
proposed to enlist the aid of Colonel
Lowther, chief aide to the Duke of
Connaught, in the matter.
Mr. McMillan desires to impress on
the public that a school cadet corps
must not be confused with a real military company. It will be under the
control of the principal of the school,
the school trustees and the provincial
education department.
All boys attending schools or colleges which are under the supervis-
'on of the nrovlncial government, all
boys attending schools and college"

Big Demand for Crushed Rock���Halibut Steamer Berths.
The demand for crushed rock ia so
great nt thla time of the year that
Gilley Bros, are still bringing crushed
rock and gravel from the Port Moody
quarries. This entails a long haul
and greater expense, but tbe contract*
with the different municipalities have
to be lived up to, and the roadmaklng
at this time ot the year is being
rushed before wet weather sets in.

That Mayor Lee Is holding up the

amply demonstrated in an interview
from his worship which appears in the
Ijondon Standard of July 25.

introduction, in the straightforward
terse language of the mayor himself,

setting forth the success and possibilities of Westminster, the enterprise
and thrift of her citizens, and, most
of all, a clear cut but not lengthy description of the harbor scheme.

THE TANGLE WHEN

Man With German Father and Japanese Mother Denied United States
Citizenship.
Acting on behalf of Charles Dean,
alleged to have been implicated ln the
Bank of Montreal robbery ln October
of last year, Mr. Adam 8. Johnston,
barrister of this city, has secured a
mandate against Mr. L. D. Taylor
adltor of the Vancouver World news
paper, commanding that he shall ap
pear before the supreme court on
Saturday, to give him an opportunity
to show cause why he should not be
committed to Jail.
The charge laid, which Is tor contempt of court. Is said to be based on
tbe World's publication of proceed ng!
!n connection with the arrest of Dean
in Los Angeles, and of Ills appearance
in police court bere.
The specific Instance quoted In the
notice of motion which was granted
by Mr. Justice Murphy concerns an
article published on August 12.
The application is satd to be unique
In the annalB of legal procedure In

more eCeatlve than a libel ault, inasmuch as it ts considered that Immediate action may be .taken by this

Seattle, Aug. 15.���Although Albert
H. Young, a law student at the University of Washington, is a subject
of the German emperor, he cannot become a citizen of the United States
because his mother was a Japanese.
Such was the decision today of United
States District Judge Edward H. Cush
man, who took the same view of the
case as Judge Cornelius H. Hanford,
who recently resigned and who had
denied Young's application for citizenship.
Young's father was a German who
married a Japanese woman at Yokor
hama. Their child was born in that
city, but on land under the protection
of the German flag, making him a
German. Young contended that as a
German he was entitled to naturalization in the United States, but Naturalization Examiner John Speed Smith
resisted his application under section
2169 of the revised statutes, which
provides that only aliens wbo are free
white persons or who aro of African
nativity or descent may become
naturalized.
Young maintained that he was entitled to be classed as "free white,"
but the court ruled that his mother
being a Japanese, he was barred from
citizenship.
IN THE ENCYCLOPAEDIA
No schedule has been drawn up by
the B. C. E. R. in connection with the
Highland Park "cut-off, and nothing
will be done concerning It until construction work on the new line begins to take ou more definite shape.
Tbis statement was given out by one
of the head officials connected with
the company yesterday afteru��/��n.
The new order by tho provincial
government, stated the official, might
have a tendency to mix things for a
time, but he thought the company
was fully prepared to handle all the
new regulations, and with the arrival
of the ner >irs. which, under the contract, should be on their way during
the next two weeks, the company will
be fully able to handle the rapidly
increasing traffic on all" lines.
The ballasting work on Brunette
street, which the company has in
hand, will be completed within the
next week, and as this will release
several of the work trains, attention
will then he paid to the Queensboro
extension, a portion of which track
still remains to be ballasted.
Special attention is being paid to
the city line along Columbia street,
and several changes are said to be
contemplated which will be In operation during the provincial fair in the
city.
The condit'on of the tracks on the
Sixth street line between Fourth avenue and East Burnaby has been mucb
improved during the past week by
the company filling ln between the
rails with gravel and crushed rock,
thus conforming to the road making
work being done by the city on this
street.

Resident.
Washington, Aug. 15.���The collier
Justin, the state department learned?
today, arrived at Corlnto yesterday
with 450 marines under command of
Major Smedley Butler, who" reported
at once to the senior officer, Caotaln
Terhune, commanding the gunboat
Annapolis, who bas been given full
authority to deal with the military
situation in Nicaragua as it effects
American interests.
Belated cablegrams received at the
state department from American Minister Weitzel, give a vivid picture of
the conflict at Managua, which began
Saturday morning when General Zele-
don, in command of the rebel forces
around Managua, opened fire on the
city from the vicinity of Momctcmbo.
Attack Penitentiary.
Insurgent officers, General Murillo
and Colonel Rostrab,    attacked    the
penitentiary with infantry and rapid-
fire  guns  in  an  attempt  to liberate
, the prisoners,  and at 8 o'clock one
hundred men under cavalry and artillery fire attempted to enter the city    -
by the lake, but were repulsed    and
twenty-five of them   were   captured.
Throughout the night firing occurred
at intervals.    Of the rebels Zeledon
had eight hundred. Thomas six hundred and Murillo five" hundred, while
the government force under General
Emilio Cbamorra was about 3800. The
government firing line in the east under command of General Frutos Bel-
anco faced Zeledon's division and received the brunt of the firing.
Shelling City.
At 6 o'clock Monday morning Zeledon  renewed  the attack,  firing shell
and solid shot from a three inch rifle
into the city at tho rate of twenty an
ytiour, directed principally towards thsr
1 president's palace.    Only "one prolec-
\ tlle reached the   executive    mansion   ���
l and the president and his cabinet con-
,lUnued v.ith their official duties.   The
Chilean consulate  arid the house of
Mr. Famm,   the   American   collector
general of customs, were hit and the
residence of the German consul suffered severely. The American guard estimated that a total of 200 shells fell In
the city, resulting in the death    and
wounding of twelve women and children.
During the bombardment General
Thomas attempted to take the government position at La Lorna by assault
from the southeast, to which the government vigorously replied with cannon and the flre trom the men in the-
tnenclies.
The ������ overnment's heavy guns were:
directed away from the city.   After p'i��
engagement lasting two hours the fire'
of the government forces    compelled
the rebels  to withdraw.    Later they
resumed firing on the city and government   forces  planted   fleld   pieces
one thousand yards east of the American legations while two of the government boats protected the lake front;
Under the government's cannonading
the rebel forces retreated until evening, when tbey   continued   to   drop^
shells Into the city during the night.
Heavy Casualties.
The casualties are reported heavy,.
particularly among  the reheU.    The"
government captured 25,00" rounds cf
ammunition arid two' rapid* flre guns,
disabling two more.   Colonel Rostran
was killed.    General Thomas ls said
to be seriously wounded, while Captain  Emmanuel    Chamorra,    of    the
government    force3,    was    mortally
wounded.   The American superintendent of the electric light plant upon
which the rebel flre was concentrated
was wounded. On Sunday while Managua was    under   bombardment,   the
rebels were defeated at the   town of
Nandaimo, General Mena's home.
Still Bombard City.
Panama, Aug. 15.���Reliable Information received here from Managua, the-
capital of Nicaragua, states that   the
bombardment of that city was renewed last hlght and that Bevere flghting:
Is going .on.

C.P.R. WILL INCREASE
ITS CAPITAL STOCK
New   Issue  Will   Be   Worth  Ten  Per
Cent, to Holders���West to
i
Benefit.
Ottawa, Aug. 15.���Somewhat of a
sensation was created in Ottawa when
the news leaked out that the Canadian Pacific Railway is applying to the
government for authority to increase
the company's capital stock.
It is not officially stated that such
an application has been received, but
information has been received from
reliable sourceB that the government
is in receipt of the notice. It can
hardly be dealt with finally until the
various members of the cabinet, now
absent from the capital, have reassembled.
The application is being made under the act which gives the company
the right to issue new stock when approved by the governor-in-council.
The extent of the proposed new issue
cannot be ascertained from any of the
officials. There is, however, a well-
defined street rumor, which put the
new issue at one hundred millions,
bringing the capital up from two hundred to three hundred millions.
lt does not appear from this rumor
that all new stock is to be issued at
once. The expectation, based upon
financial gossip for the last few days,
is that arrangements will be made
for the issue cf seventy millions within a short period.
Some fortv or forty-five million, according to this, would be offered for
subscription at an early date, and the
halancc disposed cf at a later date a?
required to meet the needs of the
road.
No definite information can be obtained here as to the price at which
the new stock would be offered to the
public, but there is said to be a teas
onably strong likelihood that the
rights pertaining to the issue would
be worth 10 per cent, to hollers ofthe
present stock.
The application now being made Is
looked cn as the beginning of greater
efforts on the^part of the Canadian
Pacific to meet the increasing railwav needs of Canadi. 3rd more especially of the west, bv a scheme cf
steady expansion in accordance with
the settled policy cf the road.

Wltb death if they revealed information regarding the three men "higher
up" in the gambling scandal, "Bridgie" Webber ami Harry Vallon, two
cf the associates of "Bald Jack" Rose,
may prove to be recalcitrant wit-
ueusea.
The two prisoners are confronted
on the other hand by possible indictments charging them with the mur-'
der of the gambler Rosenthal, unless
they tell the whole truth. Webber
and Vallon have been "reached" and
told, according to Vallon's counsel,
"to throw Police Lieutenant Becker
to the wolves" but to shield the
names of the three men now regarded
by tlie. state's attorney as directors of
the graft system.
District Attorney Whitman is telling the two prisoners to themselves
decide what attitude they would take.
James Al. Sullivan, Vallon a lawyer,
says that for sometime messengers
from those "higher up" and from cer
tain police inspectors, have visited
Vallon and Webber in their cells and
told them they might tell what they
pleased about Becker, but if they informed on the big fellows they might
as well make away with themselves,
as they would meet death later. Mr.
Sullivan said after seeing District Attorney Whitman:
"Whitman has made a case against
Becker and none of Becker's blackmailing employers seem to care a
hang abort Becker's situation. In face
they have sent word to Rose, Webber
and Vallon to throw Becker to the
WOlves. But they are determined
that tlieir own names sliall not be
brought out.
"Rose will make good, but Webber
and Vallon have been reached and I
am afraid they have made up their
m ind j to weaken. I have told Vallon
that he is not playing sure and tbat
I will no longer act as his counsel."
The determination of the citizens of
New Tork to rid their pdice force of
graft and blackmail waB given forcible
expression last night at a njaS3 meeting at Cooper Union when they appointed a vigilance committee of
prominent men and women to see
that the public officers ney engaged
In e> posing "the treasonable alliance
cf thi- polloo with organized crime"
do their full duty. The mass meet-
bag was attended by a crowd that
overflowed tbe hall. Four thousand
persona were In the auditorium, while
blocking the Btreets outside were
thousands.
Distrlcl Attorney Whitman admit
trd thai be had rorferred with John
1'. McSntyre, counsel for the accrued
lieutenant, bi:t the state's attorney
suid after tliat no terms for a confession Were discussed. Mr. Whitman
said:
"I have hopes that BirVer, who is a
shrewd mani  rpay   decide   that   his
best Interests will require him to tell
the whole truth. If he should' do 'that,
I would, .have- to think over pretty
care..../ Wat my altitude should be.
"*. v li ile" murder Is a graver crime
ilian blackmail, it might be that 1
would decide, in the event of a con-
ti Bsion; to aslt some clemency fcr
Becker. One of the greatest accomplishments for the good of the community would be to find out who are
the big blackmailera In the police de
partment and to abolish forever that
treacherous and wicked system."
ln   the   confession   of "Bald   Jack"
Rose, as prepared by the gambler for
District Attorney Whitman and print
ed  this    morning  with  Rose's    own
spelling and    punctuation. Rose    de- j
clares    that  Becker had decided    to
kill Rosenthal himself if others hart j
not done the work.    After the murder j
Rose says he met Becker by appoint- j
ment near the scene   of the murder.
In his written confession Rose says:
"I opened the conversation by say
ing, 'My God, Charlie, this Is horrible
There will be to pay.'   He said
'What Is the matter? Don't worry
leave all that to me.' I asked: 'Havt
you seen him,' and he said 'yes,' I saw
the squealing    .    1   would   havr
liked to take my knife out and cut hi
tongue out and hang it on the build
ing an a warning to possible futurt
squealers,' he said and continued:
'Well, I was saved the trouble of do
ing it mypelf. I became tired of trying to get the gang to do It, and dc
cided to do It myself.' "I asked him
how. 'Well, he said, 'after 1 left Jacl
Sullivan I instructed Otto to drive b>
the Metropole and slow down with
out stopping. 1 intended if Rosentha'
was there to take out my gun, blaze a'
him and tell Otto to keep going, bu
he wasn't there.' "
The grand jury was prepared to re
sume Its enquiry into the Rosenthal
case today. District Attorney Whit
man's assistants are making an in
vestlgation cf real estate transactions
information having Rome to the Btate'
attorney that within 'he last yea
one police inspector has investec'
more than J Z00.000 in choice uptowi
lots. In his confession, Robe say;
Becker made $S0 000 In grafting it

The coroner's inquest is late in get -

appeared in court on the panel ot thi
jurors. Daniel Erohman, tlie thi atri

others who signified their wlllingnes
to serve were Arthur Helnze. J. B

Berlin, Aug. 15.���Will "Britannia
Mistress of tne Sea," ha\e to bow to
"Germania, Mistress of the Air?"
This Is a question that has been seni
home to England for the first t.me
seriously by the recent and present
amazingly successful "oversea" exper-1
imental cruises of the Zeppelin "Vic
toria Luise." lt is a question that is
perturbing more than one European
chancellory.
When tbe "Vlctor'a Luise," with
twenty passengers "flew" from the
foot of the Alps to the North Sea from
midnight till morning, it was an epeen
in aerial craft history. The possibilities of such a weapon in time of war
were no longer "potential"���they hai.
.become "practical."
But when the "Victoria Luise" with
twelve passengers started from Hamburg and went to sea, encircling the
island fortress of Heligoland and
thence over the North Sea at a forty
mile clip into the teeth of a fairly stlfl
breeze to Norderney and Sylt, return-
ng after a nine-hour cruise, It was
brought home to England as never be
;ore than after all her thirty-mile cor-
lon of dreadnoughts, cruisers and de
itroyers bay not be an Impregnable
bulwark around the "tight little isle."
Eagles and Whales.
"Germania a-wing!" "Britannia
afloat!" "The Eagles" and thc
'Whales."
Tho "Victoria Luise" made an Impressive and imposing picture as she
passed over Kiel far above the Ger
man di*adnaughts and cruisers at
inchor and then turned and came
down "until she almost touched the
.op of the masts of the warships. Jus.
to show how the latest Zeppelin could
be handled and maneuvered, Dr. Eck-
mer, her commander, upon the return
trip from Norderney, brought the
cruiser down to within a few feet of
the sea and took on several buckets
if water for ballast.
Since then the navy department has
purchased the "Victoria Luise" and
ihe German fleet !s today the only
navy which has a cruiser in the air.
Whether Zeppelin cruisers could be
ised for Invasive purposes and reach
England and return without landing i
the fact is that the Germans are satisfied that this could be done if d-.'-,
tired.
The Zeppelins have now become, as
��� et unUefinnblo. but none the less po-
entially powerful a   factor   in   Euro
lean international politics.   Tbat thev
���ill  figure  in  anil  influence  Interna
:lonal polit.cs and polic!e3 in thn future:   that tho\-  will  have  to be con- j
sidered   In  the question   of  the  "bai I
ance of power." Is generally oonoeded
Ser has this tact been much affected j
or changed by the destruction ot the
Zeppelin cruiser "Schwaben": at Dus I
seldorf.
"The destruction of the "Schwab-n"
or a half dozen more Zeppelins." said
a German official, "would no more at
feet the development of Germany's
aerial fleet than does the sinking of
i transatlantic liner or warship affect
the mercantile or naval fleets."
While Germany is paying due at-
fpnticn to the development of heavier
than air craft, in fact there are now
ibout 1000 aeroplane pilots in training, it has developed the dirigible air
ships of the rigid, semi-rigid Zeppelins have been far the most successful beyond that of any other country.
It is sa'd that as a result of the ro
cent rapid progress In the Zeppelin
'reisers, the general staff of the a-
has greatly changed its plans of cam-
laicn in the event of war with England or  France, or   other   countries

APPOINTMENT OR ELECTION
The trades and labor councll has
already appointed delegates and announced its intention of airing
through them its views upon matters
pertaining to civic goverance when
the Municipal Commission holds its
sittings here during the two last day3
of this month. The commission was
at Nanaimo yesterday, and early in
the week some very interesting proposals were brought to its notice ln
Victoria.
One pi these; was the view put far-
ward by Mr. James McEwen, ou behalf of the voters league in Victoria
that there shculd be only one elected
body in the municipality, which bcdy
should control the schools, the pollce
and the liquor licenses, as well a3
other civic matters.
Considering the amount cf work
which is now undertaken by the coun
cils and school boards of the rapidly
developing centres cf population upon the coast, we do not see how this
project, admirable t'.cugh it be from
certain aspects, could be put into
commission forthwith. But, in so far
as th.e police ar.d license commission
ers are affected, these bodies arc at
present partially confined to meniber-
of the civic or municipal councils. !i
the case of the police commissioners
the mayor of this city is hy virtue of
his office chairman of the body, whll
the other two places are filled hy go:i
tlemen appointed directly by the gov
ernment, and an appointee of the
council from one of its number. The
license commissioners are appointed
in much the same way, but what we
wish to point out is that they are
appointed, and not elected by the peo- j
pie. I
. 'It is to change this order of things
that the Victoria Voter's League pre
sumsbly tool; act'en. and the opinion
i3 expressed in this cUy that it wonlrt
be an excellent thing If the member.1
of the police and licensing commis
sions were elected by the people instead cf being appointed, a3 the custom now is.
In certain cities it is customary t-
elect some of these officials in the
usual way, that1 is by voting for them,
and it is extremely likely that the
Municipal Commission will hear a
great deal on the subject before its
peregrinations are over.

BRITAIN MAY NOT
OBJECT TO BILL
Now  that Committee   Has   Withdraw
Discrimination Against Her Shipping���Canada's Position.
V>'a3hington, Aug. 15.���It is said to
i be reasonably certain that no further
| protest will be mado by Great Britain
| on behalf of English mercantile In-
, te:-est3 against the Panama Canal Bill
I if it takes finally the form reported
j yesterday from the conference coiri-
| mittee.
The British objection was laid
i against discrimination against the
British shipping. A3 such shipping
is not now privileged to enter into
tbe American coastwise trade, which
alone under the committed s report, is
to receive favored treatment in the
canal, that objection is overcome.
It is regarded aj possible, however,
that in deference to Canadi, the Brit I
ish Government may object to thr-
prohibition ot the passage of railroad-'
owned ships. State department officials, however, are confident that this
objection would not hold under the
treaty a3 the prohibition is applied to
American vessels as well as others,
and there could be no charge of discrimination.
IRISH     TAXATION.
One of Ireland's grievances, one
that arose long ago and continued as
a tradition, was the charge that the
British Empire! was draining Ireland
financially by'means of tax collections
and in return was only spending a
small proportion of the money so obtained, in Irlsa improvements.
Possibly, in the past few years, in
view of the better spirit between Ireland and Britain, this charge has lost
most of its fofc^ and bitterness. Yet
occasionally, it still raises its head.
Not so long'ftgo one of the most bitter of Ireland's present national cham
plons intimated something of the kind
in an important speech.
A recent British hlue book shows ir
��� detail the annual amount won from
each portion of Oreat Britain in taxes,
and the amount annually spent on the
necessities or eacn   division   of   the
��� empire. This plainly tells that, at pre
sent. Ireland is getting proportion
ately as much out of the partnershi]
as any other division. Here are llu
.figures for tbe last year available;
-   i ���                     Paid Cbtaine.'
in in
tav.ation. exnend
Ireland      ..��    8,355.000 ��10,712,500
Scotland     .      14*38,000 7.450,500
England    ..    105,974.000 49,136,000
According to this showing Ireland
makes per year a profit of two and a
third million pounds of beneflt. over
contribution, while both England
and Scotland lost, the latter obtaining
In expenditure little more than half
it paid in as taxation.
Of course figures such as this are
not necessarily absolute. Taxation is
represented by the duty paid at the
ports of the different portions of the
kingdom, and In inland revenue such
as excise and other duties. Now,
goods entered in England may be consumed in Scotland, etc., and if so the
revenue Is paid by the Scotch consumer. t
Take the .figures as given in another
way in the Blue Book. Take the percentage of the total taxation paid by
the different parts of Oreat Britain,
and tho percentage of the total taxes
.expended on each part; and the result shows a much more fair balance,
AUCTIONEER   APPOINTED.

KAVANAUGH VISITS
OLD FRIENDS HERE
Will Referee Remaining Games���Gives
Interesting Views on  Lacrosse
Situation in East.
There was some handshaking goin&
���on in New Westminster yesterday
afternoon when Jim Kavanaugh, well
known throughout the Dominion us
oue cf the best players who ever
handled a gutted stick, blew into
town.
"Just to look up my old friends and
take a peek at the stronghold of the
Salmon Uellles," stated Jim when
Questioned as to his mission.
He arrived in Vancouver yesterday
morning, and will assume charge of
the remaining games of tlie ii. C.
Lacross schedule between New Westminster and Vancouver. Although he
has grown somewhat stout since he
last played for the Shamrocks in the
Royal City, which was ln 1902 and
1903, still there is plenty left of him
for his friends to recognize the features of the old warrior. Perhaps the
lirst to greet him were Harry Hyland
and Mac McCarty, who were with the
Shamrocks last season. Then along
came Tim Mahoney, Pat Feeney, sr.,
Cliff Spring, Tom Rennie and others
80 tbat sqon passeis by on Columbia
street saw unmistakably that a regular pow-wow was taking place.
Talking to a representative of the
Westminster Daily News, Mr. Kavanaugh slated that the change in the
city since he was last here was very
evident of tbe prosperity that the
town vvas enjoying.
"Everything is changed now," he
said. "1 well remember the days when
we stayed at the Uiiichon hotel, and
the players could see the crowds
boarding the cars on Columbia street,
hanging ou to the back steps and
fenders in their anxiety to witness the
struggles on the park."
Asked what the possibilities were of
forming a national commission this
coming winter to govern the game
throughout the Dominion, he stated
that if the Big Four and Con Jones
persist in, leaving out the N. I,. U. It
will mean, in his opinion, a deathblow
to lacrosse.
coming winter to govern the game
"Despite reports to the contrary the
old N. U U. is still in the fit Id. and by
the crowd the games arc drawing
hack east In comparison to the attend
ance :it the Big Four events I look for
an amalgamation of both leagues before another season opens. What tlie
people in the ea3t want is to nee the
Cornwalls, the Capitals, the Shamrocks and the Torontos mixing things,
and Messrs. Quinn. Fleming and Kennedy ai*e beginning to see the error of
their ways Just now. Wet weather
on Saturday afternoons in the East
lias no doubt kept down the crowds
in both leagues, but with the elaborate
salaries the Big Four are paying, the
bank accounts of, all the Bl? Four
teams, with perhaps the exception of
the Nationals, will show an adverse
side. If Cornwall or the Capitals decide to come out to the coa��t in quest
cf the Minto cup, it would be well for
the Paciflc players to keep in condition."
When last seen Mr. Kavanaugh was
on the lookout for Bob Cheyne and
"Mose" Howard. The latter's prowess
in the fleld this season Is well known
In the East, and many a manager, according -to Mr. Kavanaugh, would
have raised Manager Gray's ante tf
they *nd hopes of Howard vacating
the wild and woolley. He left for Vancouver later In the evening.

but John McGraw could have committed such a crime.
By this time the chicken dinner hari
broken up, and everybody had gone to
bed. McGraw was just pulling off his
coat when the bottle crashed against
his door. The "chicken" followed
with a heavy thud, and then came the
furious voice of the old woman:
"Come outa that! come outa that, ye
Irish rep-tyle! Come out and meet mc
in this hall, and I'll show you, you
A. P. A., you Fardown, you Orauga-
man���I'll show you whether you car.

And it cost McGraw $5 iu perfectly
good money before he could coax her
to see it as a joke and to leave the
door.

as lt was. they had a fairly pleasing
time, and scores of people sat up
every night for fear they d miss something that McGraw would plan.
The climax came when McGraw
gave a chicken dinner, to each man t
whole chicken and a small bottle of
Haht, harmless wine. When the ga>
company gathered around the festal
hoard, all went well, except with Ar
lie Latham. Somehow or other, some
body or other had slipped Arlie t
chicken that had ceased chlckenln?
about the time Broadway had ceased
to be a promenade for Peter Stuyves
act. while Artie's bottle of wine hau
been emptied and carefully refilled
with soap suds.
Alle sank his fangs Into the "chick
an" and broke two front teeth. Feel
Ing somewhat agitated he took a deer
pull at his bottle and then declared
war. He smote Josh Devore with .the
"chicken" and was about to wBaek
Reals Becker with the bottle, when al'
hands camped upon his bosom, and
the noise of riot died away.
McGraw then sent the "chicken"
and the bottle to an Irascible old worn
an who was acting housekeeper of thr
hotel. On the breast of the Iron MM
he placed a card: "With the compP
ment of Bo7eman Bulger." the wcP
known baseball scribe. The good old
'ndy attacked the "chicken," bent her
few remaining teeth right back In the
Xtvms, took ��n agitated drink fron-
the fatal bottle and then described r
beollne for Mr. Bclger's rooms. Mr.
Ri<i*er nnd his w'fo were entertaining
SHI Mercer, nnrt.hor scribe, and Mts
Mcrner. It took all four of them tf
hrld th" oil woman till nn al bi cou'.i'
be established, nnd when sh" was convinced that Bulger didn't do jt she
reasoned���quite  Juatly���that

A Joke That Became &
Boomerang of Retribution
By CLARISSA  MACKIE
"I don't see why .vou don't rent your
house, Agatha," insisted her Couslu
Phoebe. "You're always wishing you
conld add to your income so's not to
go out sewing every day. If you'd
only rent your west wing to some nice
old lady-like old Airs. Pedermuo-
you'd be as Independent as you please."*
She smiled placidly upon Agatha s disapproving countenance.
"I don't wnnt t<> rent my west wine
to old Mrs. IVdermiin." retorted
Agatlm spiritedly. "She'd nerer gtre
nie a moment's (leace of mind with
her borrowing and snooping around rny
rooms Hiid tlieu running off to gosHlp
about It to every Tom. Dick and Hurry In Utile Hiver."
"Ilolty tolty!" ejaculated Phoebe,
sliakeu out of her customary calm
cu'ks. "Vou might remember tbal old
.Mrs. Pedermnn is my husband's mother's only sister and"���
"1 don't see how I could belp remembering lt. Phoebe." said Agatha
wearily. "Vou certainly linven't given
me much peace of tlie house since fattier died. If you want me to take
Mrs. l'ederinan to live wltb me why
don't you come out nnd say so?"
"It ain't nothing to uie." retorted
I'liophe warmly. "M.v house Is big
enough to hold nil m.v husband's moth
er's sisters mid I heir husbands and
cousins and theli aunts."
"I'm glad you feel so amiable about
It." snld Agatha calmly. "Now. \ou
can understand for good and all. Phoe
be West. Unit I don't want any strati
gers iu m.v  house."
"Suppose somebody should nsi: cjc
nbout  it,"  persisted   Mis.   West,   who

was    persevering    in    small
"What shnll 1 tell 'etnV"
"Von can tell 'em It's rented"
"Hut it isn't."
"Yen. 'tis." Agatha's voice was ns
obsthiate as I'lioebes now
"Rented from the lirst of the
month V
A.?ntliu bowed her head
���\\ lm to';" demanded I'hoebe Incredulously.
"Von will know ,lo good time," re
turned Agatha, with nn eiusperatlhg
smile ol mystery when one considered
that the Idea of the tenant hnd sud
(lenly popped into her head Now, her
cousin, l'hot'be West, ttoiild leave her
iilone for awhile
So thought Agnttllt Moore. Imt she
reckoned not with I'hoebe. The very
Hint of a mysterious tenant who would
occupy Aglltllll'S west wine was a
tempting appetizer for (lie curiosity ol
llie plump, rosy cheeked cousin
"I'll let I can guess!" cried I'lioobe
triumphantly. "There alfi't many folks
Imt what I know something of tlieir
plans, uiid���you needn't smile, Agilthu
Moore: ru just guess a few names"
I'hoehe proceeded to "guess" whom
Agatha's tenant might be. She guess
ed tlie new dentist, the l.nd.r hook can
vasser who had been stopping at the
hotel, the new milliner who hid open
ed n little shop in tlle village; she
guessed all the nnllqiinled mid homeless people In the village, and still
Agatha smiled and shook her brown
nead Then Mrs. West confessed herself buttled.
"I know It couldn't be thnt Mr Ken
low who has charge ot the building of
lhe ne.v church, becnuse he wouldn't
wnnt to lire In your little -meiichlii'
mums.' ended I'hoebe. nt last In eat h
iesslv spiteful
"Vou needn't be too sure." euiu
Agatha, with coloring cheeks.
I'hoebe shrieked Id ania/.eiiicit
"Agatha Moore, you're never rented
thnt west wing to a handsome bachelor like Mr. Kenlow."
"He Isn't very handsome," evaded
Agaiha. moving toward the door.
"Thai doesn't mnke it any more prop
er. I declare 1 shnll tell Jabez," hair
sobbed I'hoebe, who, like many good
gossips, possessed a keen sense of tbe
conventionalities.
"Do tell biro If It wlll relieve your
mind." advised Agatha rather flippantly, and she pulled on her floppy
pink sunbonnet and went out of tbe
gate nnd toward her own bome.
When sbe waa under tbe ihade of the
maples on ber own front inwn nil tbe
soft color left ber cheeks and gave
place to pale dlsniH.v. Of course I'hoebe would run hither nnd thither ubout.
tbe Tillage aud relate llie scandalous
fact thnt her queer Cousin Agaiha
Moore had refused to rent the west
wing of her big house lo anybody tn
the villnge. but had leased it for any
length of time up to twenty years iso
would run tlie storyi to Mr. I-Vnlow. the
tall, good looking man who had charge
of the building of the new stone church
near the river. Mr. I'enlow hnd been
staying at the hotel, but It had been
rumored thnt he was dlssutlslled aud
desired to make n change.
Agatha Moore had seen him once or
twice and hnd never spoken to hlm In
her life. I uleed. so casual nnd beeu
her glances nt hlm that she hnrdly
knew Just how he looked. Now she
felt terror stricken to think thnt she
bad Involved n perfectly harmless niid
atrnnge man In some of Cousin Phoebe's gossip. Of i-our^e It whs Agiithu 1
fault. She bad tin bflsluess lo try hi
Jest with Mrs. West. I'hoebe had n*
sense of humor
It wns imt until nfter supper thnt
Agatha decided In run ovei lo I'boelte i
and confess that she had been Joking
nbout lhe new leiinut tot tlle west
wing nud thus nip lu the bud any gossip that Phoebe's busy tongue might
propngnte.
Ains. It wns ton lute! The mischief
bnd already lieen done. (In her way to
Phoebe West's Agaiha met several
neighbors, nnd each one wns thoroughly Informed concerning ihe new tenant who wns coming to oeeupj life
west wing of Agmtin's Mg house.
"Where's be going to get his meals?"
asked one.
"Cook em himself, for all I know."
snapped Agatha Impatiently ns she
faced about home, aud thus she added
another bit of fuel to the Uame or gossip.
"I wonder whnt I ought to do," mu<-
ed Agaiha three days biter ns she
wandered distractedly around her little garden, it Inckod two days of the
lirst or the month, und bei molehill of
u Joke had developed iuto a mountain
of incontrovertible fact.
People watched dully to see If Agatha's new tenant had arrived to take
possession of the west wing, nnd I'lme.
le West had made a Inst and desperate effort to induce Agaiha lo lake old
Mrs. 1'cdersou Into ber house us a
��li.;;er. n.
"A woman of my nge doesn't need 1
chaperon," refnt'titl Agatha, hastening
away. She avoided Phoebe nowadays.
(Mi ihe day befoie lhe Hrst Agntllrt
found courage born of desperation nnd
unde a little note to Sinieon l-Vlllow,
She asked him to call "on Important
business." explained her prim lime
note.
Tli.it evening, the eve of the tirst,
Simeon I'enlow called Upon AgatlW
Moon* Agaiha utmost swooned witu
agitation us nhe iinfolncd her Iniquity
lo llie big.. I.mini Shouldered nuiil
wh ise voice boomed like the waves on
tlie bench whenever he spoke Simeon
I'enlow watched tier keenly as she related the story of her Innocent JlMta
upon gossiping Phoebe West and how
tiie Joke had become a boomerang of
retribution,
Agaiha wus too much excited to
notice how Interested lle WUS or lu
realize Ihat he was a very hltildsotns
nihil With keen hazel eves anil Iron

grew verv humorous and lender n< the

When she had ended Simeon FenloW
threw hack his Head und In uu lied sn. n
n hearty roar that Agatha vfiln film to
join In nfter awhile, nnn ;n.n��r tfnr*
of.mirth Ihe bitterness of tlie last fe>V
days was washed avvav.
".Now tell cie what 1 1T.9 do, M'sj

"I was wondering if you >rni,iii>, t

"I rton'l know why," bristled Mr.
I'enlow. "Whv can t I bave the we^t

There's my dear old mother pining

down here on this job It would oo
mighty n|i-e for us to have vour vvu��t
wing for a few mouths What do roll
siiv'r I'd rather lie yonr real tenant
than a Isirrpwed one."
What could Aglltha say?
Ope evening lhe gossips of the town
were startled nt the report that Mr.
I-Vnlow hnd tieon seen to drive up in
u mrrlnjre to Agatha's house and hand
��� mt n white haired old lndy. who went
in. und ir little inter nn express wagon
followed with some trunks that were
carried upstairs.
And Just before the occupnut of the
west wing vacated It there wns another re|Kirt more startling still. It
was Hint Mr. Kenlow and Agatha were
engaged.   And It wns true.
When Agaiha Moore and Simeon
I-Vnlow were married the following,
spring Dame Gossip wns stlllalert.
"I'lrst time I ever suspected Agatlm
of Iieing after a husband," commented
I'hoebe West to Jubejs tbe nlgbt of the
wedding, "was when abe refused to
rent her west wing to your motber'i
sister, Marin Pederson, and turned
around and rented It to tbat handsome
iVninw man and bia mother. It was ���
sly trick."
Hut we who know how the whole
thing happened understand tbat Agatha's Joke was not premeditated. The
joke really belonged to little Dan Cu-

Judge Who Pushed a Train.
How he once helped to push a train
,,-as described by Judge Wake'.y at
Castlerea Quarter Sessions in un ne-
tion lor damages against a railway
company. A solicitor told the old story
of an Irish light railway, where the
passengers were asked to get out umi
push. "I actually did that myself,"
said liis honor, amid laughter. '^lt
was on the branch line between Enfield and Edenderry. We had n light
engine called 'The Fairy,' and on
market days when all the heavy farmers boarded the train 'The Fairy' was
not equal to the load. I remember
myself getting out on the steep grad��
near Carbury, and helping tip) push
her up."
He Got Him.
An example of cabby's wit is given
by Mr. Pett Ridge.
"If you catch the train at Charing
Cross," said the fare, who was in a
hurry, "I'll give vou.flve shillings. It
you don't���it will be the usual fare."
"I see sir," replied the cabby; "you
mean, no cross���nd crown."

How    to   Make   Usually   Unpleasant
Task Agreeable.
Di.-h washing, whicli is probably
thp most dislik.'d of all household
tasks, muy be made a very pleasant
bit of work if t' e proper preparation
is made.
First there should b; a generous
supply of towels, and it "-ill be found
best never to use a dish towel more
than 0DC9 without laundering.
There should be more than one
kind of wiping cloths used, according
to the nature --nl the dishes. Soft
glass towding should b? used for the
glass and linen crash for the other
pieces.
For washing more variety is required. Ther? should ba n mop for use
on deep artic'^-. a soft cloth for fine
ware, a heavy one for ordinary dishes
nnd a wire dishcloth for iron ware or
cooking utensils.
Of course there should be a plentiful supply of hot wnter, good soap,
ammonia or borax, if he water is
hard, and two puns, one for the washing and the other for rinsing, with a
wire tray or basket to drain
For the washing fill the pan half
full of pleasantly warm water, omitting loap for the glasses and adding
instead a little borax or ammonia,
making sure that glasses containing
milk have been thoroughly rinsed
beiore nutting into hot wat r, as it
will be impossible to get them clear
otherwise.
Wipe the glaafPS without letting
them drain, as draining is not tn
make streaks. Cut gluss needs a soft
but firm brush, at it cannot bs kept
clean with ordinary washing.
Silver will not i)"ed rubbing so
often if a little borax is added to the
water in wbich it is washed, and it
should not stand to drain, hut be
tt!,)?d as soon as taken from the
wat r.
Cooking dishes which huve been
filled with cold water as soon as
emptied will be found ea.-y to wash.
If food hns been let burn in a utensil,
if filled with water to which a little
lye or considerable sod.i bus 1> en
added, you will find most of the
blackness has vanished.
When tbe dishes have lvon wash d
then put. all the cloths through a w.sii
and bang to dry in the air whfr' tie
sunlight may tind nnd sweeten th��ni
us it is not possible to keep dishcloths
wholesome unl ss so treat d.
And if you value the health mil
comfort of your family you will ob
serve this injunction ubout the dish
cloths, us it is quit.' possibl0 fof
typhoid and oih:r g.Tim to lurk in
dishcloths which are eare*.c��s)y luid
aside for next occasion.

Select   Day   When   Wind   Will   Not
i Blow Seed.
Th"r" is surely nothing more baau-
tifi'' than n fine pre��n lawn and really
not so difficult a thing to obtain if
��on�� about in thp right w;:y.
Tlie nron?r way to start i.s after the
lawn has he n era-led to put in it a
top soil of at lua-t six inches and
have a gradual sloping grnd; for
drainage, or. if the ground is low and
dump, it will be lust to lay drain
pip"s from two to three feet below its
surface.
Soil tliat is rich is very often acid,
which can be corr.cted by applying
nir slaked lime in Sufficient quantity
to comet the acidity. With sandy
soil the question of fertility is of
prime importance, aft*r the grading.
The entire urea should b" cover tl
with well rotted manure. Where this
is not possible u chemical fertilizer
should be used. After this fertilizer
hB.s thoroughly mellowed thp soil and
a smooth surface has been secured it
is then time to sow.
A day should be selected when the
wind will not blow the 8?ed. In an
ordinary open lawn a good mixture
i.s Pod pratensis mixed with Agnostis
aenmma. For und:r ths trees wher-
it is difficult to secure any kind of
a lawn the ground should be covered
with myrtle or hedc-ra ivy. After the
s ed bus been sown the ground should
be raked and cone over with a heavy
roller until prtfncily level.
Win n ths grass jg three to four
inches high it should be cut with a
scyihe until strong enough to bear
t'���j mower. Should any hare spots
appear these must, be made mellow
and  asain seeded down.
The b-st season for making u lawn
is inim diately after tbe spring ruins
and before the 1: at of the summer
tends to dry out the ground.
In the treatment of old lawns that
have become poor''through a lack of
fertility the best and in tli' end th -
cheapest thing tp do is to plow them
up and cover with manure and con-
i-inict ubout th.e same cs a new lawn.
A lawn requires the use of a heavy
roller in tlie spring after the early
niiris und u^s'in about June and Sep-
t.mbt ���.
During the summer dry spell, wh��n
the lawn is built shallow or with irf-
i,ufificient drainage, it must lv water-
rd artificially, Other than tha usual
cutting with the lawn mowers there
is no other care necessary unless it
ehould be covered in December with
manure and nfter the spring rains
have washed the nutriment into the
soil to have this maiiur - removed.
Old Tim* Remedies.
Strange as it may seem to some, the.
ingredients of the witches' caldron in
"Macbeth," at least a part of them,
were once standard remedies among
Europeans. In the tenth and eleventh
centuries a sovereign cure for ague
wag the swallowing of a small toad
that had been choked to death on St.
John's eve, and a splendid remedy
for rheumatism was to fasten the
bands of clothing with pins that had
been stuck into the flesh of either a
toad or a frog. Physicians frequently
recommended the water from a toad's
brain for mental affections and that
a live toad be rubbed over the diseased parts S3 a cure for the quinsy.
Saved   101   Lives.
Charles Williams, a lighterman, of
Limehouse, a young married man, 34
years of age, has just commenced his
second century in life-saving. A resident in the east end all his life, his
work has been on the river or in the
docks. Since 1896, the year when he
rescued a lad from the Regent's Canal, he has saved 101 lives, all from
drowning. Williams holds the certificates and decorations of the Royal
Humane Society, and has had the
distinction of having his name mentioned in connection with life-saving
in every police court in East London.
His Expenses.
One of the candidates at an election in Derbyshire, England, was a
newcomer not remarkable for his generosity. He found himself defeated
at the polls and bade adieu to the
electors with the words, "At any rate,
ladies and gentlemen, my wife and I
have spent a very happy fortnight in
the -peak." "Yes," came a sudden
retort from the cr^wi, "and that's all i
you have spent." I
