Mr. A. O. Powell at Progressive Association Luncheon-
How Plahs Were Made���Westminster's Position on the
Pacific Coast���Co-relation of Harbor and Hinterland���-
Panama Canal, Its Problems and Suggested Solutions.
Discussions on the harbor improvement acheme, the Panama canal and
its effect on the cities of the Pacific
coast, the canal rates, the making of
a city and many other topics were Included ln the address of Mr. A. O.
Powell, tbe eminent engineer of the
Westminster harbor scheme, delivered
at the Progressive association luncheon yesterday afternoon. The White
Lunch cafe was literally jammed to
the door by the number of people who
turned out to dine with the guest of
the day and to hear him speak, and
though eating by the majority of
those present  was accomplished  un

Intended to be great it could only
realize its ambition by stimulating and encouraging both forms of
transportation.
The Fraser Port.
"New Westminster has now two
railroads," he said, "a third is building toward this point and three or
four other transcontinental lines are
within its early possibilities. Its
weakest point is that it has no har
bor capable of competing with the
other maritime cities on the north
Pacific coast. It has, however, a tidal
river of great potentiality,���a short
connection to deep salt water which

After the diners had done full justice to the excellent fare prepared for
the occasion, Mr. T. D. Sherriff, acting in the place of President Dr. P.
P. Smith, of the association, who was
unable to be present, introduced the
guest. '
Friends Yet Strangers.
"1 bave aome diffidence in addressing you," Mr. Powell said in opening
his address, "a local body of business
men friendly toward me and yet- almost entire strangers. Notwithstanding the fact that I have spent most
of my time during the past flfteen
months in your midst, my circle of
acquaintance In New Westminster ls
small. I hope the condition will not
continue.
"Nevertheless, the lack of acquaintances In the past has had one redeeming feature. In a way it has formed
one of my chief gratifications In the
perform_)_** of th* vork * wea engaged upon. It ls in itself evidence
that I was unhampered and entirely
free to prepare the best plan for the
harbor improvements that I was capable of, without attempt being made
to Influence my judgment,���without a
single suggestion on the part of any
one save from the members of my
force, whe, as plans were gradually
unfolded, were free" to come to me and
explain their ideas for modification
or betterment.
"I profited," continued the speaker,
"by the earnest interest and professional pride which my assistants tool<
ln the work, notably by tlie loyal support cf Mr. B. E. Spencer, who is
now my principal assistant on the
construction."
Fashioning the Plans.
Mr. Powell then went on to tell how
not the slightest effort was made by
Interested parties to secure special
advantages to any person or corporation ln the making of the plans. His
own force* was pledged to secrecy during the formulation of the scheme
and no outside person had any Intimation as to the character of the
plans untll the flrst draft had been
made. At that stage of the proceedings the maps were shown to the
mayor and a few other parties whose
co-operation was essential, Tbe final
report was later submitted to the
city councll. <
Speaking of the mayor and the citv
niinriiinm   Mr .Powell remarked.  "I
councillors, Mr. Powell .remarked,
deeply appreciate tne confidence that
the officials   and   citizens   of   New
Westminster have reposed In me and
It excites my best efforts to convert I
the   paper   plans    Into    constructed |
works." _ '    I
Before describing the scheme, Mr. ���
Powell made a few preliminary re-1
marks on modern civilization, which
he stated might be considered trite
and commonplace, yet they were the
basic truths which Justified extraordinary efforts to create harbor
facilities.
Somo Basic Truths.
He told how agriculture was the
basis of all material prosperity, and
why transportation was the factor
which had brought about wondrous
changes which had made possible the
comforts and luxuries of life. The Inefficient and email country factories,
the speaker stated, had been trans-
competitor for deep sea water commerce."
���escribes Plans.
The engineer then commenced up
on his description of the harbor improvement plan. On a large map
placed at one end of tbe cafe he
pointed odt the deep water line and
traced lt down from Port Mann to
the foot of Annacis Island. He showed how the line Skirted along the
waterfront of the city from the bridge
to Tenth street, and then curved off
to the foot of Annacis Island. It was
not a good plan to interfere with the
course of the river the apeaker stated,
and for that reason it was decided
to construct a dam across from Annacis Island and Lulu Ialand, instead
Of dredging that place. Tbe water Inclosed behind the dam would provide
the thing very much deBired by
mariners, a currentless harbor.
The piers to be constructed Inside
this harbor would be 1200 feet long,
the water around which would be
deep enough to float the largest ship
on the Paciflc ocean. The scheme Itself as outlined on the map would
perhaps take a generation to complete. Mr. Powell said, as only the
number of piers necessary for a few
years to come would be erected at
first. At the upper end of the channel which will be 250 feet wide will
be arranged a turning basin, large
enough for a ship of any size to
make about comfortably.
Front Street Changes.
The secondary improvement, as Mr.
Powell described It, but of more in
terest and beneflt when, completed, to
the city, will be the widening of
Front street to a width of 193 feet.
For this purpose the money derived
from the bond Issue at present being
negotiated by the city would be
utilized.
The widening will be done for the
purpose of providing facilities for the
railroads coming into the city. The
harbor schema in its entirety, ahe
speaker said, was too large for the
city to handle alone and he advocated
that the citizens and the Progressive
association concentrate their efforts
on acquiring aid from the harbor commission and the Dominion government.
Adaptation for  Industries.
Speaking of Industries, Mr. Powell

John  Carver  Drowned   Last   Night���
Friend's Attempt to Save Him
Failed.
Edmonds, July 30.-���While swimming ln Deer lake thla evening John
Carver, a municipal road foreman, re.
siding at Royal Oak, met his death by
drowning. It ls supposed that he was
seised with cramps.
Deceased, with two companions,
walked over to the lake last evening
about 7:30 o'clock. He was the flrst
of the trio to plunge in the water,
which is known to be of great depth
Just there, and his cries for assistance reached the other two men, one
of whom dived In the water after him.
This man secured a hold on the
drowning foreman, but found himself
sinking and was compelled to release
his grip.   Carver was hot seen again.
His two companions immediately
notified the Burnaby police, who used
grappling Irons up to a late hour this
evening with uo results. Another attempt to locate the body will be made
tomorrow morning.
Carver was of English birth and is
said to have been In the country sev-
eral years. He was about 25 years
old and single.

An important decision, and one
which It is hoped may be productive
of much good, was arrived at by the
executive committee ot the Progressive association at its meeting last
evening. This was to the effect that
in future there shall be held a monthly meeting open to all the members
when tbe president will present a report of the activities of the executive
during the period past.
The first of these conferences will
be arranged as early as possible from
the present time and is at the call of
the president. The city hall will
doubtless be the venue.
The report of the municipal committee was adopted concerning the
building of stables in the city. It
was felt by those present that a man
had a perfect right to have a stable
for horses In his own grounds, even
if it were in the residential district,
providing, cf course, that the neces-1
sary sanitary precautions be taken.
The foregoing committee considered that to refuse people, the right tc
erect stables would lutilct a hardship
not warranted under existing conditions.
Another . Important matter brought
up at this juncture was that the executive believes that the time has now
come when the city council should
provide a new business area by the
opening up of streets for that purpose. This matter will be brought to
the attention of the councll.
It was also suggested that the councll should discourage as far as possible the building of corner stores and
business blocks in the areas now apparently set apart for purely residential purposes. Tbls question involving
as it did many complications and con-

Washington, July 30.���The vigor of
the terms that the senate shall use
in declaring that no foreign country
sball establish a naval base at Magdalene bay, or at any other point on the
American continent, will be the suh
ject of consideration tomorrow by the
foreign affairs committee of the
senate.
Within a day or two, it is believed,
the senate will be called upou to
adopt a resolution stating in unequivocal terms tuat the Monroe doctrine or
the settled policy of the United
States requires that no foreign power
be thus permitted to secure a military or naval foothold In the western
hemisphere.
Senator Lodge, as chairman of the
sub-committee that Investigated tbe
rumor of a Japanese purchase ot four
million acres of land on Magdalene
bay, wlll make a formal report tomorrow to the foreign affairs committee,
recommending that the United States
reaffirm the policy known as the Monroe doctrine In terms that cannot be
misunderstood by any foreign power.
Tbe senate Investigation hogan as
tbe result of a report that a private
Japanese syndicate, waa attempting te
control a vast tract about the Lower
California bay, long regarded as the
best naval base on the Pacific coast.
The corporation' submitted to the
senate in April and May by President
Taft and Secretary of State Knox Indicated that th'e United States had
no Intimation tbat Japan as a gov-
c.nraent, was behind the attempted
purchase or that it intended to make
use of the land aB a military naval
base.
It is understood that the sub-committee, headed by Senator Lodge, has
found no evidence of the connection
of the Japanese government with attempted purchase of the big tract of
land In Mexico.
To make the position of the United
States clear, however, the majority
of the committee will propose tbat
congress declare that this nation wlll
ticipated that mining in the interior
would receive a decided impetus by
the advent of modern machinery, to
replace the cradle and the pan at present ln use.
With the better navigation of the
streams would follow a reliable means
of bringing in supplies wbich would
tend to inspire a feeling of confidence
among tbe settlers who had frequently
suffered considerable hardships in
winter montha on account of the supply trains being blockaded or the appearance of some otber difficulty.
"Improvements are being made on
the Tacla river, and at Stewart lake
at the present time by the settler*"
said Father Coccola, "with a view of

cons'der Clptain E. J. Smith guilty
of neglect.
The committee found that while the
action of Captain Smith in turning
over the message warning as to icebergs ahead from the Baltic to Ismay
was perhaps improper and Irregular,
the incident in no way affected the
navigation of the ship.
The committee found that the third
cla83 passengers were fairly treated
and warmly commended Captain Rqs-
tron, of the Carpathia, for his quick
action in response ^o the Titanic'3
calls for help.
Bitter condemnation of the commander of the liner Californiau is expressed, the report-folding that in It3
belief the Californian must have seen
the Titanic's lights and could have
reached the Titanic in time to save
most or all of the passengers.
The report concludes by recommending fire and ice "drills; reduction of
speed when in ice districts; an international conference on life-saving apparatus and wireless equipment; more
relief for wireless operators, and
sight tests for lookouts.
The trouble with the firemen and
trimmers took place on Sunday owing to the fact that one of their num

British Steamer Has to Put Back tc
Newfoundland.
St. Johns, Newfoundland, July 30.���
The British steamer Manchester In
ventor. put into port Monday, badly
damaged as a result of colliding dur
ing a dense fog July 24, with a silb
merged iceberg. The steamer Is
beiind from Montreal to Manchester,
England. ��
The iceberg was encountered fifteen
niiles north of Belle slle Straits. The
steamer's fore compartments were
pierced and her frame was racked by
the blow. It was necessary to jettison the deck load of lumber before
the vessel could proceed.
When she arrived here her compartments were full of water and she
was nearly two feet down by the
head She will go Into dry dock here
for repairs.

In carbon, which It derived from the
warm, moist atmosphere. Then ibe

President Fallieres' Greeting���Canada
thc Link between Two Great
Nations.
Paris, July 30.���The British Chamber of Commerce yesterday gave a
luncheon in honor cf the Canadian
Btatesinen now visiting in this city,
lit. Hon. R.^L. Borden, Canadian Premier; Hon. C. J. Doherty, Minister of
Justice, and Hon. J. D. Hazen, Minister of Marine and Fisheries, all voiced the hope that their mission would
have fhe eftect of strengthening the
influence of tbe friendly relations existing between France and the British Empire.
Sir Francis Bertler accompanied
the Canadian ministers to the Elysee
at flve o'clock. There the British ambassador presented the Canadians to
President Fallieres. Their reception
was most cordial.
The president referred to the existing friendship between France and
Great Britain and the bonds between
Canada and France. He hoped that
these would grow stronger In every
wav and was sure his ministers would
gladly expedite tra.de, open negotiations and consummate any arrangements for the mutual advantage of the
two"countries.
Premier Borden, speaking ln French
thanked the president for the kind reception. French-Canadians came of a
race, he said, which had a genius for
development of a country such as Canada. He hoped to see the amicable
relations with their Mother Country
grow stronger. In every sense.
President Fallieres then chatted
with the ministers, asking questions
about Western Canada.
Previous to this, at the British
Chamber of Commerce luncheon at
the Restaurant Precatelon, Bois de
Boulogne, Hon. L. P. Pelletler won unstinted applause by an eloquent
speech, in the course of which he
aald - that the entente cordiale relations between Britain and France was
no new thing amongst the two races
In Canada. It was instituted by Sir
John Macdonald and Etienne Cartler.
a rood feeling engendered in the foundation of Canadian happiness and
contentment. The entente cordiale
was In evidence in every Canadian
cabinet since Confederation. One
voice, he declared, from the Overseas Dominion Joined to the voice cf
Oreat Britain, was powerful enough
to force the respect of those that menace tho Imperial heritage.
The luncheon was attended bv a
hundred people. President Boding-
ton of the Chamber of Commerce,
had Ixird Bertler on his right and
Premier Borden on his left.
Mr Borden sn*d the relations of
Canada, Great Britain and France
were eminently satisfactory.    He v-ai
Hon.    Mr.    Monk    Makes    Important,
Catement on Pressing Need of   *
Harbcr Works.
Ottawa, July 30.���"The truth is that
the country is confronted from the Atlantic to the Pacific with a situation
of commercial and industrial growtn
which calls for vigorous action as far
a3 transportation especially ls concerned, and wise aua . i i.clous expen-
iture of very large suuis of money if
we are to keep abreast of the time."
The above statement indicates the
impressions made upon hon. F. D.
Monk, Minister of Publlc Works, as a
result of his tour of the river
stretches of the St. Lawrence and of
the Great Lakes just'completed. In a
statement today, the minister reviewed his trip, and strongly emphasized
the need of so equipping Canadian
lake ports as to enable them to hold
their legitimate share of enormously
increasing traffic from the west. He
also made important statements upon
the. equipment of Pacific ports and the
drydock at Quebec.
Mr. Monk described the need of further Improvements on the Paciflc
coast as urgent, and said he had intended going at once to British Columbia, ..but had found this impossible.
However, representations from the
Paciflc ports cannot be overlooked,
he said. After a visit to Quebec he
would visit the Paciflc province. "Our
Paciflc ports," he said, "just at this
juncture are practically unimproved
and are In pressing need of harbor
works, suitable public buildings and
all the requirements of a country with
an immense future before It. The people there are naturally anxious to
keep pace with the great strides forward which are being made at all the
American Paciflc ports. They are
right, and their representations cannot -be overlooked."
Dealing with the Quebec situation
Mr. Monk said that the proposals towards building an adequate drydock
there have recently come before the
government, which aB yet has been
inable to decide what to do. The accident to the steamer Empress of Britain emphasizes the need for such a
dock.
Regarding Insurance rates, he advocated the formation of a Canadian
Lloyds.
Works which Mr. Monk foreshadows on the Great Lakes include river
improvements in the Detroit, equipment for Windsor, a new lock at the
Soo and unspecified improvements at
| Thunder Bay and Georgian Bay ports.

chief engineer ot the marine department, Ottawa, after an examination

and will *T dispatched to her destination via the Great Lakes and Cape
Horn within the next few months.
The vessel wlll make her home port
with iniluencing voters ln the confessional. The case arises out of the recent contest on the liquor question
there, and the victory of Father
Tremblay over the Pro-License party.
Many years ago the parish priest,
Father Fafard. In order to regulate
the liquor traffic, was instrumental ln

sale of liquor. This has been the
only place where liquor could be purchased and It was not sold by the

CANADA  IN  THIEE   DAYS.
New York, July 30.���Hereford Marshall, counsel for "Jack Sullivan'' (Jacob Reich), the go-between of Lieut.
Becker and Jack Rose, now held in
tho Tombs in connection with the
murder o�� Herman Rosenthal, announced today tliat Sullivan was
ready to tell a;l he ��.ue\v on tne stand
and thut his story would prove more
astounding than any yet told. Sullivan, he said, would not talk to either
the pollce or the dlBtrict attorney.
The indictment and arrest or Police Lieutenant Charles Becker for the
murder of noaeiuhal, soon after the
confessions of "Bald Jack" Rose,
"Bridgle" Webber and Harry Vallon,
.revealed today , to District Attorney
Whitman, the "police system" in all
Its hideousness.
The public prosecutor, following the
trial of the three confessions continued his search for evidence that
would implicate those higher up than
Becker and more Indictments of police officials are expected.
The arrest of Becker lays bare a ���
scandal in the police department that
threatens to shake it to its foundations, for District Attorney Whitman .
believes the, story of police graft has
only half been told. The arrest of
Becker followed the summoning of the
grand jury yesterday afternoon. After
entering a plea of not guilty he was
taken to tbe Tombs.
"Bald Jack" Rose confessed that
Becker came to him, and, fairly desperate over Rosenthal'B Intention of ���
telling all he knew of his relations
with the police lieutenant, said "Rosenthal had lived too long. He has
got to be put out of the way." Rose'
told the public prosecutor tbat the
murder band was hired at the instigation of Becker, and that after the
killing Becker met with Webber and
himself and promised complete police
protection.
According to the confessions the'
murderers were "Lefty- Louie," or
Lewis Rosenzweig; Harry Horrowitz,
or "Gob, the Blood;" Frank Muller, or
"Whltie Jack" Lewis, and "Dago
Frank" CiroficL Only Cirofici has
been apprehended. These gunmen,
members of the notorious "Big Jack"
Seelig gang; placed their services
with Becker and then went to shoot
Rosenthal lor a price said to be $5000.
Terror-stricken, Rose, Webber and
Vallon spent the niirht in the public
prosecutor's office, fearing that they
would be murdered if they were taken to the Tombs prison.
District Attorney Whitman believes
his ease against Lieut Becker Is without a flaw; that the confessions, taken separately, dove-tailed and from
the testimony of other witnesses, the
case against Becker can not be broken down.
. "Bald Jack" Rose, gambler, who
says that be was Becker's gambling-
house collector, felt the ground slipping from under him day by day.
Without money or Mends he realized
that he was being made to bear the
weight of the crime. His counsel advised him to confess. Rose became
completely terrified. To his counsel,
James M. Sullivan, he said: "If you

are protected I'll Wll the truth about
this. I am afraid it will be the end of

A GOOD MOVE.
Thjs is the holiday season, and
many of Westminster's busy ones are
away for long or short periods from
the city. The fact therefore is all the
..more notable that at the second luncheon given by the Progressive association there was no falling off ln the
attendance or interest that signalized
the first gathering.
In many ways the Progressive asr
sociation fills the peculiar function
which Is supplied in other cities by
the Canadian club, but its scope is
just as wide while paying mora attention to matters of a local nature.
The information and wider outlook
upon subjects vitally affecting this
city which may be won at these
periodic'gatherings is in itself an advantage which none can afford to
miss. Mr. A. O. Powell's address yesterday was in every way of the
greatest interest to his hearers.
We are glad to hear that the association has now decided upon a' new
departure. In future a meeting cf
the whole of the association's mem-
tiers will be held once a month, at
which the executive will give an account cf its stewardship, and will outline the work accomplished and in
view. This is but right and proper,
for just as in a sense the association
itself supplies a link between the
-people and their appointed representatives, so it is essential that there
.should never grow up a need for a
link between the executive and the
great body of the members composing
the association.
Conferences of this nature can not
but be of the greatest possible vulue
representing the taxpayers'WThSTSm-
pire as well as thoBe of tho. United
Kingdom. And that Is the problem
for which the Imperial Government,
with the help of the Colonial Ministers, ought to flnd a solution during
the next lett months.���The Standard,

BRITISH   MONEY   M^KET.
Another warning appeared in the
news columns of Saturday's papers
that the British money market is not
at present open for any heavy purchases of Canadian securities. As
the Montreal Star says, commenting
editorially on this subject:
"Our credit was good; the London
money market Inexhaustible; "ttnd any
Canadian municipality or ' enterprise
could equip Itself at wiy with borrowed capital.
"So a 'pinch' comes as an unusual
and annoying experience; But it is to
be only temporary. Just as soon as
ther> Canadian securities lirfw ori' the
British market have been_.tak.en up,
there Wlll be room for plenty more.
We can wait with more or te?j9 good
nature; for we are only "a^fayfed���we
are not denied.
"But what If this Blackened appetite for Canadian securities lft Iiondon
were due to a permanent gjni growing weakness of the London money
market? What if London, as a financial centre, had received a death
blow? What if things were going to
get worse instead of better; and we
realized that our securities would
have a poorer chance next year than
they have now? Wouldn't that be a
verv serious thing fcr Canada?
Would that not strike a staggering
blow at our national development
cripple many cf our boldest enter
prises, and wither as In a burning
blast the high hopes cf hundreds of
our most optimistic communities?
"lint this cannot happen., you. say
Are you sure? What would be the ef
feet upon the London money market
If Britain were to lose India?
Wouldn't it be felt? Then Ur on top
of this, Britain were to be driven out
I of Egypt���were to lose her'African
colonies���were to be compelled
hand over Hong Kons and l\er, grir
on Chinese trade to���let us say���Germany? Would this not make a difference?"
To the people ol the AVest, this
v.arning c.i the part of the Montreal
daily may seem a little excessive in
tone and color. It may seem like
jingoism. But the warning, uttered by
the eity treasurer on the front page
of The Herald on Saturday is the out-
came of the imperial conditions stated above. In addition. British eon-
sols are lower today than they have
been any time during the last ninety
years. On the top of this slump, a
revolution is reported to have, broken
out in Portugal. Happily, Japan is developing along commercial lines and
is without any critical diplomatic difficulties or the illness of the. Mikado
might complicate matters tij'...that direction and  have added  to the  pres-

The judgment by the privy council
in the case stated to it by the Dominion Government, dealing with the
proposed Lancaster bill and the present marriage lawa of the Province
of Quebec, is decisive and final on one
Important point.
lt declares that the Dominion parliament has no power to pass legislation governing the solemnization of
marriage or fixing the conditions
which determine the validity of marriages.
lt finds that all these powers are inherent in the provinces and can be
exercised only by the provincial legislatures.
In this the privy council confirms
the unanimous finding of the Supreme
Court of Canada. This was also the
view taken of this legal question by
leading lawyers of the present and
former parliaments, by Sir Alan
Vylesworth, former miniBter of Justice. Sir Wilfrid Laurier. Mr. Borden
and C. Ji Doherty, the present minister of justice.
The second important point submitted in the stated case, their lordships
ler.line to deal with. This was a question whether under the circumstances
prevailing in the celebrated Herbert
case���two Catholics married in the
Province of Quebec by a Protestant
clergyman���the marriage was legal.
When the case was before the Canadian Supreme Court the chief justice of Canada declined to answer
this question on the ground that an
actual case, not a hypothetical ques-. j engineer was accorded a hearty vot<
4ion. was already before the courts of of thanks by tho association for
Quebec for a-decision. Justices Id'ng-1 courteously consenting to be presenl

fusal of the privy council to render a |       D 0|_D DAYS CQME
judgment will make it necessary that ; rack  in rni nnann
the Herbert case should be carried to | 3ACKJN  COLORADO
this court for final action. In this
case Mr. Justice Charbonneau of Quebec, superior court, found that the
marriage vvas legal. This judgment
is now under review by the highest
court in the Province of Quebec.
Their decision when rendered, can
be appealed against, the case be'ng
carried directly to the privy council
by way of supreme court of Canada.
The legal representatives cf the Province of Quebec asked the supreme
court not to give an answer to question No. 2. which dealt with the interpretation of a law of the province and
repeated the request at.the hear'uis
of tiie case before the privy council.

Eyerthlng points to the two teams
In the B. C. lacrosse league being
seen In action once more on Saturday afternoon. Negotiations have
in progress for the past two days between Acting-Manager Matt Barr, of
the Vancouvers and Manager Gray of
the Salmon Bellies with the result
that ihe differences which have created widespread Interest throughout tbe
entire Dominion will probably be
patched up some time today.
Another session will be held ln this
city this morning when It will be decided which city will have the honor
iTT first seeing the two teams playing
the national game once more.
Be it said, however, that the Royal
-City delegates are standing firm in
their demands, and knowing they
have the backing of practically the
whole of the citizens they are out for
a purging of present conditions. Had
not a sudden stop come about these
conditions would eventually have resulted in an Inglorious death to lacrosse as far as the coast iB concerned.
When spoken to over the telephone
late last evening, Manager Gray was
in a hopeful mood that everything
would be patched up to the satisfaction of both teams, but further than
ihat he could not commit himself.

For the first time in many a moon,
tbe Balmorals under the leadership
of Manager Bill Maiden have succeeded In getting away with the long end
of ��� the decision. - It was some battle
yesterday ,p.ra. and the occupants of
the expensive JddW, i not forgetting
the chaps that decorate the bleach-
era, were treated to one ot the finest
games that have been pulled off at
the local ballyard for some time.
Just why the Bals have not delivered the goods before, has been a sore
problem to Manager Maiden and his
confreres, and at a late meeting held
on Monday evening it was decided to
Issue an appeal to alMhe former Bals
so that they could lower the horns of
the proud Moose.
However, the decision came too
late for publication, the secretary of
the club not appearing in person, bo
that the fans that congregated at
Queens park were tliere for the specific purpose of witnessing the Bals receive another walloping from the herd
It was noticed from the outset that
a Mr. dilver was on tlie mound for
the BttlB. 'Tis said that he has pitched some stellar games in the past,
but the one he handed to the opposition last evening deserves to be embodied in a special book and left to
the tender care of the Carnegie Library.
Both teams got one- over in the
first, the Moose following with two
in the third. The latter ought never
to have been recorded and were entirely due to the want of steadiness
of Messrs. Ryall and Mansen.
In the fifth Brown, for the Bals,
doubled, and a crack for two bases
by Mansen, brought in Brown. Score,
3-2.
The trouble, excitement, or whatever a fan might call it, started in
the sixth. A hasty confab among
the Bals resulted in the word being
passed Out "slam the pill". And slam
it they did.
Silver singled. Sherbino a two-bagger wbich he stretched to three, scoring Silver on an error. Dlgnan got
beaked by the ball," Glass singled
scoring Sherbino. Ryall with blood
In his eye champed at the plate and
cracked out a single scoring Dignan.
Bedlam reigned when Mansen, the
human megaphone, who was coaching on third, trotted to the plate
with tho result that the ball (vas shied
home
'Tis to laugh. Ryall was called out
on second by Mr. Umps, who appear
ed anxious to appease the Moo3e foi
Mansen's Btnnt. but no r.le in th<
book shows same rule to be leg'tV-
mate. ln the inixup, (ilass came
across on an error. The official scorer reeled at the sight of the Bab
coming across the plate in such great
numbers that for a time he lost count
However, witli great difficulty and ex
pense, he figured the total at four
thus making tbe score 6-3. That end
ed 'matters.
Mr. Silver, of the Bals, worked like
a major league heaver of renown, and
had nine of the visiting batsmen making waves in tlie_atmosphere in the
endeavor to connect. Too much ered
it cannot be given to the victors, they
hnd the sign on tho herd from the
start and the only unfortunate, feature
cf the entertainment is "Why did
not Bill Maiden keep to his old play
ers?" When Interviewed at great
length last evening. Bill refused to
give out anything for publication.

for Went���Victoria Rumors.
Toronto, July 30.���Con Jones is
once more In our midst. Upon this
occasion, however, the coast lacrosse
impresario has discarded the warlike plumes that caused consternation * hen he visited the East ln May,
and his visit th|s time, is one of
peace rather than of war, The up-
lieavnl of the Coast league, with the
withdrawal of the New Westminster
club, threw Mr. Jones upon his own
resources and his arrival in Toronto
was for the- purpose of effecting a
pence between the warring lacrosse
factions.
I'e went immodiatelv from the train
to interview James .Murphy with re/
gard (o arranging fcr an all star ag-
gregat'bn for the West. Jones stated
Ihat if arrangements were satisfactorily carried out and tho men were
obtained the team would probably
leave for the coast about September 8
or 0. Throe games will probably be
played during tho scries, all to take
place In Vancouver. This team will,
of course, only remain temporarily ln
the West ns far ns known at present.
A:j regards establishing a permanent team In the West, made up of
Kistern players, nothing is known.
Victoria will probably be the hom,"
ground of this team, but It le-not
l'kely any games will be played there
this year. Vlotorla tias about four or
live Pkely players, who, together with
those who can be secured In the East,
ought to tuahe a strong rival tor the
other Western teams. Jones Is after
the Big Four winners nnd the National
Lacrosse Union ohamplons to mike
the tr'D to the coast for the Minto
���cup. Jones stated he would leave for
Montreal tonight.

A Happy Family.
One <>f the happiest famine3 in F.tiB-
land is that of the Uuke and pitches*
oi Norfolk, to whom another dauu'htei
was born the other day.   Their fatnilv
now numbers three. Lady Mary Howard was horn in IS'Ou. ard the Karl o'
Arundel, the heir to the duked tn. ot
May 31,  Htnf.    The people o|  England
take a warmjl interest perhaps in the
Duke  ui   Norfolk   than   in  auy  otlier
person  of  title.    This  i*  not because
he is much in the public eye tip ceremonial   occasions   as   the   Hereditary
Karl   Marshal,   but   by   reason   of   m
Kreat sorrow bravely  borne.    His son
by his flr��t wile was terribly afflicted
and could t ever have maintained the
dignity of the dukedom, and his father's  devotion   up  to  the  time  nf  the
u'lfottunte youth'* death touched (the
admiring sympathy of the nation. The
l>uchess of Norfolk is a woman after
Queen   Mary's  heart,  as  she   is  seen
little in society, devoting all her at
tention to her young family.   She alsc
takes a keen ;ersnnal interest in the
affairs of the Roman Catholic Church
Ideally  happy  is the  life that  passes
within  the   walls  oi   Arundel  Castle,
nnd all sorts ol stories are afloat in
the countryside about the ducal pair
On one occasion, it is said, the duke
was  practicing  duck  shooting  in  the
"decoy,"   a  favorite  stretch   of   water
among   the   neighboring   woods,   the
duchess    being    present.    The    ducal
sportsman  presently  brought down a
bird witb wbat seemed extreme neatness.
"Bravo. Harry, a good shot." she
exclaimed.
"Yes. it might have l>een worse."
the duke admitted, "only it wasn't
the one I shut at, you know."

most of the prisons in this country.
They are, on the contrary, very
bright and cheerful in appearance,

The factory (urns out a Iarg_> mian-

Thc ordinary routing of th" gaol is:

which nil prisoners are given n bowl

with which they arc gi% n n small

after this meal is finished the prisoners are drafted off to their various
wirks. At eleven o'clock they are
given th" midday menl. consisting of
a raji Hour pudding or cske. together
with vr2etnhles nnd dhall curry.
At twelve the work bell goes again,
and work is resuni'd till 5 p.m.. when
every prisoner who is not sick has to
bath", and the evening meal, which
is similar to the midday ni.nl. is
served. At six o'clock, or shortly"

"I'hilo Standlsh got It up."

"Kor tbs protection or men folks

"What have they said about itr ask-

"Why, they sli promise not to mnrry

"Ob, household matters snd things

wbo was a widow.  <
"And exchange cake recipes," sniffed

"And tell each otber we've eacb got

"She wouldn't never be happy witb

A murmur of disapproval went

South Vancouver May Be Cut Off from
Vancouver Supply.
Edmonds, July 30���The report made
to the Vancouver city council tin Monday evening with regard to the water
supply and which stated that It may
be found necessary to cut off a portion, if not the whole, bf the present
supply now being used by South Vancouver,  may  have   some   bearing  on
the Burnaby waterworks system.
At the present time, liurnaby. Is
securing its water from the Vancouver mains by an arrangement witu the
city authorities", and it is not antic!
pated that the shortage will affect
Burnaby whatever. However, for
some months past the counc'l of
South Vancouver has been enquiring
from liurnaby to what extent the
latter municipality could assist in
Averting a water " famine in South
Vancouver.
The water mains for the full Burnaby system are now being laid across
tlie Second Narrows, and lt is
thought that if South Vancouver
makes another urgent request, which
Is altogether feasible, the work at
the narrows will be rushed with all
possible haste.
Burnaby would then have enough
water to supply a population of nearly 70.000 people and could amply assist ber sister municipality in the
present time of need.

Although Columbia stieet is conceded to be cite of the cleanest and
most sanitary streets- in any city in
British Columbia, in the opinion of
Alderman Curtis It could be made far
better if the merchants would refrain
from sweeping rubbish from their
1 stores out on the sidewalks. Only a
few tradesmen practice this, but Mr.
Curtis opines that the police committee would do well to keep closer tabs
on prevailing conditions.
