. Mayor John A. Lee arrived In New
Westminster yesterday looking well
and youthful as ever, but glad to get
back. So anxious was he to return
and so weary of talking of "bonds"
and "loans" that he embarked on the
steamer befoie the negotiations were
Anally completed In London. However,
within tbe next few days-he expects a
cable from tbe London agents of the
city stating that everything has been
finished, and that the necessary
money to be used on many Important
projects ln the city will be available.
Had Difficult Task.
It was a ver> engrossing business."
he said to the Westminster Dally
News yesterday afternoon. "It was
difficult work, the market being very
badly congested with Canadian securities. Tbese do not altogether appeal
to British capitalists when better markets can be secured ln other directions.
"Still Canadian credit is good In
London despite the fact that a num
ber of our c'ties have found it difficult to float loans. A temporary con
gestlon of securities In London and n
desire to secure money at low rate3
were responsible for our failure to
secure all we wanted.
"Naturally I am glad to get back
home, glad to get back to New Westminster and to see thi> Improvement'!
which are being made all around tis
Any pessimist can see that tliere Is
prosperity In the air ln this city at

ARREST CHICAGO
SALOON KEEPER
The question as to what right the
United Brotherhood of Carpenters
union had ln working tweiee bours
per day on the new horse show building now ln course of erection at
Queens park, while receiving straight
time, was brought up In the Trades
and Labor couucil meeting last even
lng on a motion of censure upon the
union proposed by Delegate Hogg.
No little discussion ensued, some ol
the members taking the stand tbat lt
was entirely a matter for tbe union
to deal wtth, and not for the council
At one point President Stoney Informed the delegates they were out of order, aud this ruling stood.
Delegate Dodd, ln a brief, quiet
speech, said that the building of the
horse show structure was a matter of
interest to all New Westminster peo
pie who were looking forward to the
annual exhibition and were anxious
to see the building completed, being
one of the best attractions at the fair.
He tock the stand that the union was
within Its rights lu making the agreement with tbe contractors, and that
any talk of Interviewing the city
council would be out of tbe question
altogether, as the contractors were
abiding by the union agreement. i
Finally a committee was appointed
to take up the matter with the union
in question, and to try and bring more
amicable relations between the two
carpenters' unions In the city.
Another question which raised no
end cf discussion was the proposed
addition to the constitution which, lf
passed, would have limited the expenses ef a delegate to the conventions held annually to $5 per diem
each day he would be away from the
city plus railway fares.
Several objected strenuously to this
passing, giving as their reasons that
the high cost of living would prevent
a man from breaking even on the
trip let alone securing his wages
while away.
Delegate Gibb moved an amendment allowing delegates 97 per diem
while away and alao train expenses.
Tbe tatter waa carried by a large majority.

"The Grain Growers feel that thh

The Langley fair held yesterday

The fair was officially opened at 3
p.m., by Mr. F. J. MacKenzie, M.P.P.,

was far better than ever. "The only
thing this district needs now," he declared, "Is a new , agricultural hall;
aud 1 wlll do my best to see that yop
get tt." He also touched upon the
transportation question, stating that
there was room for a great deal ot
improvement. He and many visitors
had to walk four miles to the show.
The cattle and live stock exhibits
were the feature of the fair, and attracted a great deal of attention. The
poultry show was also very flne, while
the vegetable and fruit exhibits could
hardly have been better. There was
also nn excellent display of embroidery ar.d needle work, which proved of
great Interest to the ladies.
Sports were hold -In the atreet fronting the exhibition grounds, and many

"In Old Kentucky" Is Well Presented
at the Opera Houss Last
Night
Lovers of melodrama had their in
nlngs at the Westminster opera house
last night when the old favorite, "In
Old Kentucky," was presented by a
good company to a large house. Oni)
one incident marred tbe evening. This
was tbe apparent Ignorance of th"
audience when, at the beginning ot
the second act, the "wangdoodle
band played "Gbd' Save the King,
and the only recognition given thi
national anthem was some slight ap
plause at Its conclusion.
Not a person in the house stood' up
This strange lack of respect on tht
part of supposedly loyal Canad'ans
was commented on by the manager
of the company, who stated that this
Is the first time it has occurred s:ncs
the show bas been playing in Canada.
"In Kamloops last night," he said
"there was no one ln the audience
who failed to rise at the first strains
and the same is true wherever we
have shown."
Tbe show Itself was well put on.
and pls.yed by a capable company.
From the attempted murder of the
hero by the villain and the saving of
his life by the heroine in the first
act, until the curtain falls on rove
triumphant, with the villain dead in
the wings, the piece Is replete with
'lexsr comedy jind tense moments.
Each of the big scenes was given a
Tood hand. A feature of the performance was the pickaninnies and hand,
had the audience only done its share.

if the old standbys will hold forth in
'The Old Homestead." This again is
one of the shows which cannot be
leen too often, and two good bouses

There,
Hudson Bay Route   Is   Risky���Thu*
Canadian Northern Decided for
East and West
Winnipeg, Sept. 26.���"I am of the
opinion that the Hudson Bay railway
undertaking Is of so risky a nature
and ita ultimate success is so prou-
lematlcal that It should be operatej
by the Dominion government until iti
real value has been demonstrated."
said Sir Donald Mann here today
"I know," he added, "when the
Canadian Northern started we had
the choice of going north to the bay
or east and west We chose to go-
east and west, and I think the result
has Justified our Judgment. But you
never can tell and the result is uncertain. Undoubtedly there will be ��
large flsh trade from tbe north and
valuable mineral deposits may be
found along the right of way, as happened in the case of the Ontario government road, making the line ot incalculable worth. Add to this that
there is bound to be considerable
through traffic, freight and passenger,
and the element of risk is materially
reduced. But I think that the right
course is being pursued."

GREAT IMPROVEMENT
IN BURNABY'S BAIL
Old Municipal Offices Are Transformed Into Splendid Meeting Place-   v
for Residents. '     ,   '���
Edmonds, Sept. 25.���With the com-'-
pletion cf the alterations to the   old
municipal hall at Edmonds, the municipality of Burnaby will have one of /
the finest public meeting places   on
the lower mainland.
When tbe new municipal hall was
opened early ln tbe spring by Sir
Richard McBride, and the different
departments were moved Into it the
councillors had on their hands a substantial building, but which in Its '���
then present state, was ct no use to*
them whatever.
Redve Weart suggested the idea of
turning lt into a public meeting ball
where entertainments, amateur dramatic plays and- dances could be held,
a place where oratorical contests,
such as at election time, could be
fought out without utilising the handsome building now known as th��
municipal hall.
All the councillors concurred an*
the contract for the alterations was.
awarded to Messrs. Disney tt Tucker,
of Edmonds.
A visit to tbe place now discloses
a remarkable change. The main halt
qr auditorium, is spacious, 84 teet
long by 40 fleet wide, and on the soutb
end of the building ls a large stage.
15x40. capable of staging a good slsed
company. Tbe entrance facing th*
Westminster road Is a spacious one;
hnd nearby sre dressing rooms an<P
box office connecting. Two other
dressing rooms are located near the-
stage together with a large kitchen.
Tbe flre fighting appliances are all'
that is desirable, and the main entrance Is supplemented by two emergency exits on either side. The building will be completed In about two

contended that the only workable system should be to treat the rich ahd .
poor alike in the matter of thiB train- i
ing.
Tbe recent  naval  manouvres,  con-,

possibility   for  foreign  transports to

London, Sept. 25.���Field Marshal-
Lord Roberts, speaking at Norwich
today uttered a solemn warning to
England with regard to her preparedness for war. ',
He stated that the navy must be
further increased, and that the army
must be sufficient in numbers, as well
as efficiency. The navy should bs
treed of the necessity of being tied to
British shores.
Lord Roberts argued farther that
compulsory training furnishes tha
only chance fcr the British to hold
their own aga!n3t the highly trained
forces   of foreigners.     Therefore, In

Prerrjicr Fisher Would Give Maternity
Bonus of Twenty-flve Dollars for
Every One Born.
Melbourne,    Sept. 25.���Mr. Andrew
i Fisher, prime    minister of  the  commonwealth,   supports   the   establishment of a maternity bonus of $25 for
, every baby born in Australia.
I    The prime minister   suggests that
everyone should accept a postal note
which would be dispatched upon re-
ceplt of a doctor's certificate:'' In ���*&*���$
no doctor be employed, Mr. Fisher
proposes that a government commissioner certify how many children are
born.
Last year 122,194 babies were born
in the Commonwealth, and the prima
minister states that he would be glad
to Bee at least $5,000,000 absorbed in
maternity bonuses, or, ln other words,
Mr. Fisher would like at least 200,003
little Australians to be born during
the year.

London, Sept. 25.���Canada ls to ho
granted a cardinal at the next consistory, according to the Milan correspondent-of the Daily Chronicle, in the
person of Mgr- Bruchesi, of Montreal.
The Pope's decision, he says, ls largely due to the encomiums which have
reached the Vatican respecting tbe
Archbishop's masterly ability as displayed at the Eucharistic congress
held in Montreal.

THE TAILOR
46   Lorne  Street,   New  Westminster,
Get in on Westminster Industrial Grounds while you have the chance. To do that
you have to get in quickly. I want to tell you that New Westminster is going to be a
big city, not a long time hence, but right away. There are more indnstries located in
New Westminster than in any city of twice its size in Canada. It is going to be the
manufacturing centre of the whole western country. And mark this, it is going to be
the greatest Seaport on the Western coast of the Dominion.
This is not an opinion, it is a staple fact. I am not arguing, I am telling you. The
history of the world; the natural laws of commerce and trade have proven that great
seaports must be located on rivers and not on salt water at all.
Look in the book. Find Liverpool, London, Glasgow, New York City, Hamburg,
Montreal, Philadelphia. Look at any of them, look at almost any great seaport, you
will find that its harbor is a river, not a salty sea. There is hardly enough exception to
this rule to prove its correctness.
There are good sound reasons for this but it is not necessary to go into them. Ship
owners, ship companies know. They prefer fresh water harbors. They want New
Westminster. The city has already voted for a harbor scheme which is so big that the
Dominion Government, the Provincial government and a group of Englisn capitalists
representing millions of pounds sterling, are all joining to carry it out.
Work has already begun and tfie preliminary plans are well
executed. The completed harbor will oe the best on the American
Continent and one of the best in the world. ���
IIJIT1!! aO A HP ^e s^P01"*9 are the safest and surest of all cities and New
WIIH I   AKK Westminster is the one best chance to invest a little money that
T f * * * * ^^*1*^*-4 ig in Canada today.   It is the only city that hasn't had a boom.
This advertisement oniy appears once. It is the only city I know of that nasn't been enlarged by the
READ THIS
addition of any subdivision. It is the most prosperous city in
British Columbia. Everyone is making money in New Westminster and business is in a very healthy and normal condition.
Now, that's the sort of a place where you can buy a lot right
in the heart of the industrial district for $200, payable $25 4own
and the balance in quarterly payments.
$25.00 Down
Long Terms
Of course ihls Is essy.
Think of it, $200 for a lot all cleared, within two blocks of a
tram-car line and within eight blocks of fourteen industries employing more than 2000
men, and where good men can always find work.   A man wh buys one o'f these lots
doesn't have to wait, he can live upon it right now and be close to hL work; save carfare and live in his own house.
This is New Westminster Industrial Grounds, The greatest city lot proposition I
have ever offered; the greatest anybody has ever ofTered in this part of the country and
its going to be a sensation in real estate circles and every lot will be sold, before you
know it, so if you want one of these lots, get in touch with my office today, and I will
have one set aside for you.

MINISTERS PUT OFF     |
VISITS TO COAST
SHIPPING SEASON. *.*

Parliament Group���Canadian
Architecture.
Ottawa, Sept. 25.���The architects
of Canada and the Empire are to be Invited to submit plans for a new departmental building or group of buildings to bo constructed along the bank
of the Ottawa river west of the par-1
liament.buildings. The land has been'
acquired bg the government, and the
former owners are now being settled
with by agreement or arbitration.
Space is urgently demanded by the
departments of the government in Ot
tawa, which have been scattered
through the office buildings of the
city in an effort to find roonr for
them. The late govern' 1 t9t wis rXoot
to erect a big officU. bu lng "fl
Sussex Btreet, but before a contract
could be let they lost authority to
close the bargain. Some years agu
the government had a competition
among the architects for a departmental buildings. The prize ran up
Into tbe thousands, and most of the
architects of-Canada competed. The
results were disappointing. Of a
score' of prizes submitted, three were
swarded . prizes, but none were
thought good enough to build from. It
is ste ted that Canadian architecture
bas made great progress since tha'-.j
time, and that sucb a competition today would produce some splendid designs. It Is probable tbat the first
prise will be $25,000 and the competition wfll"'be limited to architects and
architectural firms of Canada and
Great Britain.

PLENTY OF GRAIN
CARS AT PRESENT
Frost Hss    Done   tlttre    Damage   In
Manitoba���Elevators Not Handling Much.
Winnipeg, Sept. 25.���In spite of the
frost cf Monday night and rain all
over the province for the past fe*
weeks, thero appears to have been
very little damage done to the crops
ln Manitoba, us far as can be learned
at present.
Reports generally say that there
has been no rain for the past few
days, and the indications are that a
cool dry period has set In, with conditions favorable to the resumption
Of harvest operations. There Is still
a large quantity of grain not cut in
the northern portion of the province,
where threshing has not yet begun.
The other districts appear to be
well ahead with the cutting and
threshing well begun, though not general.
In Saskatchewan, where much better weather conditions have obtained,
work is a good deal further advanced.
Yesterday grain trains to the East
again resumed operation and todiv
the demand for motive power on all
the lines in Manitoba Is strong. The
elevators are not getting a chance to
handle the new grain as most of It is
going direct to the grain cars and
every siding Is full of empties. Not
in the history of the West has the
situation in regard to rush grain go
ing to the market been so good as It
ia now. This ls the feature of the
agricultural situation in Western
Canada today.
Ottawa, Sept. 25.���The announcement that parliament will be summoned in November has necessitated
a complete change In the plans of
cabinet ministers. A balf dozen
members had erpe'ed to mal, trips
through the West (r. *h". t'/nst bu,
will i.i all probability have to abandon
the idea.
Hon. W. T. White was looking forward with considerable expectancy to
a trip through the Prairie/ Provinces
and British Columbia. The Finance
Minister will uow be needed ln Ot-
twa to prepare for the session. Hon
L. P. Pelletier had so arranged his
plans for a vacation trip. "It ls witli
a great deal of regret I am forced to
give up the trip," said Mr. Pelletler.
"I was eagerly looking forward to a
visit to the West."
Hon. J. D. Hazen was Intending to
visit British Columbia, and will probably have to postpone It.
Tbe coming session promises to be
the most momentous and most interesting for years. The bringing down
of the naval policy will make lt an
ep.ch-making session alone. It will
IT'-c pitate a great debate. However,
il is not the only big question. The
Bank Act Is already prepared, and Mr.
Wh te will Introduce it as soon as tne
House opens. Premier Borden Intimated at Montreal that both the Tar-
ii' Commission Bill and the Highways
Act, which were killed during last
���*������ hslon, will be again Introduced,
which means another clash in all prob-
���iLility between the two chambers. If
th.': Senate persists In its attitude it
.vt uld not be surprising If a bill for a
reiorm of tbe Uppei Chamber were
ti . uglit down.
Although the House has been hurriedly summoned, the government will
not be caught napping, and wlll be
prepared. Orders went out sometime ago to prepare the estimates.
and the departmental reports were
never as far ahead as at the present
time, thanks to the energy of Hon.
Dr. Roche.
The Grain Commission has succeed
ed in bbtaining for service at Port
Arhttir a huge floating drier from Buf
falo. the only thing of its kind on the
continent. The drier, negotiations in
regard to which were opened some
time aeo, is now at Port Arthur. With
Its aid a great deal of wet grain
wllich accummulated in the West will
be improved for market.
Says Sir Thomas Shaughnessy���Wet
Weather Has  Delayed  Movement
cf Crcp.
Mon! real, Sept. 25.���Sir Thomas
Shtugbnessy returned from his annum .ntpection trip to the West yes-
tort m.
ll.erybody in the West appears
-n'.i.-f,(.<:," said the Canadian Pacific
Kailtoad president, "and there is uo
tV'HSvU why they Should not be, fn
'bt It uiers cf the West are the ricli-
e.'t i ;-icuitural people In the world.
1 ae grain crop will be a bountiful on-;
Liit '.Id* wet weather is retarding the
lift .-vest and delaying the movement
of the ciop, and this will mean a very
shoji f'ppiiig season. We made am-
pl" ; (tdiations for the harvest before it was ready, and under existing
c<-iiu.i.<.'us we can only do the best w
can.
"I don't anticipate the difficulties
some of our friends are predicting regarding the movement of the grain
from the West. Of course there will
be a tremendous rush��� I trust we
will always have tbat���but with a reasonable degree of patience everything
will work out all right In the end."
Asked about the suggestion of the
"Grain Growers' Guide" that rates
via the south should be secured, Sir
Thomas replied:
"We have heard so many fears expressed in the past tbat there must
be an extraordinary condition in the
grain traffic that we have become
rather accustomed to it, and realize
tbat many people are given to exaggeration. There Will be difficulties,
of course, as there are always difficulties in connection with the handling
of so much grain during the short
season before the close of la're navigation, but 1 don't anticipate tbere will
be anything of a serious nature."

��� Sentiment
I/mdon, Sept, 25,���The Lord Chancellor, addressing his former constituents at Bast Lothian yesterday on the
occasion of his receiving the freedom
of the town of Dunbar, declared that
���Important as were the strategical
considerations which were drawing
the Empire together at the present
moment���there were other great
bonds of union, tbe most Important of
all, and never greater than at the present time, he said, was the affection
wltb which the Dominions Overseas
regarded the crown. There was another consideration, perhaps lus obvious, with wbich he had to do. the
Judicial committee of the Privy Council. That wu the most real ln the
Empire and one that had not received
the attention it deserved. "1 hope,"
uid Lord Haldane, "it may be given
to me to make an effort such as 1
tried to make In military maters, towards the developing still further the
Importance ot this supreme trubunal.
We don't desire to meddle with the
affairs of the Dominions, but we think
that if we provide them ,ylth sn absolutely Impartial court brought together the best way we cau, they will
c61ne to welcome It'      '
"Last summer," he continued, "thn
month of July had been devoted to the
hearing of��Canadian appeals exclusively. They had put their souls Into
tha business; we thought they had
made a success of it, for Australia,
New Zealand, India and South Africa
and'for every part of the British Empire that chose to resort to that unique and remarkable tribunal, which
was.like no otyer In the world: , it
had-been doing magnifcent work for
many years and they desired to develop it"
He had a bill before Parliament for
that purpose and be hoped the Commons would show great Interest in It.

Perpignon, France, Sept. 23.���The
French minister of war, M. Millerand,
has ordered the Twenty-fourth Regl
ment of Colonial Infantry to be got in
a-jdiness to proceed to Crete and Sa
mos. In both cf these islands uprisings are threatened in support ot the
demand for annexation to Greece.
Turl-ey dispatched 8900 troops from
Smyreua to Samos, a Greek Island off
the west coast of Asia Minor, to quell
the trouble, which arose a few days
ago after the departure of a French
and British warship. Sofulis, a local
leader, lauded a body of men from the
Island of Nlcari, which has proclaimed its independence. British and
French warships have already been
ordered to Samos. Tlie island of Crete
is an autonomous state under a high
commissioner of the four powers���
Great Britain, Russia, France and
Italy���subject to the suzerainty of tho
Porte. Disturbed conditions In . the
Balkans in 1908 fostered an agitation
in Crete for annexation to Greece,,
but the Powers refused to permit this,
declaring that the administration of
the leland will be entrusted to the
"constituted authorities," until Turkey gave consent. Samos is a principality under the sovereignty of Turkey, but also Under the guarantee of
France, Great Britain and Russia.

WHY  BETAITHLE3S?
Nothing in the world stands still,
movement either backward or forward -is the unalterable law, and the
sooner this everyday fact iB ingrained
on the minds of those who would
have Westminster mark time the better. Within our own bounds there Is
a section of people who have no faith-
in the city which in many cases has
been the scene of tlieir enrichment,
but it is surprising to hear that thn
���"Utile Westminster" section has mad?
its voice heard in the old land, where
it is of the utmost importance that
our credit should be good.
Everyone should be aware of the
vast strides that the city has taken in
late years. It has. been pointed out
frequently also that this advancement
has been in keeping with the traditions of the city. It has been solid
and substantial development   of   the
creeds or denomluations, or the getting ln better perspective a conception of the value of tbe barrier"
which separate one church from another as compared with those which
separate all churches from the widening field where churches do not seem
to prosper, ls not of immediate coi
cern.
If four theological colleges ca i
dwell together in peace and amity n

out of the question to look for somewhat similar action on the p-.rt of
their respective denominations.���Montreal Star.

"Are the ladies of Toronto, tht

President of Fifth International Congress of Chambers of Commerce
Commends Scheme.
Boston, Ma3s., Sept. 23.���"Brotherhood" as an essential ln perfecting international trade relations and world
peace was dwelt, upon by Secretary ct
Commerce and Labor Charles Nagel,
in an address of welcome to the visiting delegates to the Fifth International Congress of Chambers of Com
merce.
"Wliat we want to establish," said
Mr. Nagel; "is a relation so intimate
commercially and subseqeuently socially, that no country a party to our
congress will permit controversy because it cannot afford to have it.
"ln my Judgment results of just
such congresses as these are far more
Important than agreements favored as
a result of diplomatic negotiations.
You represent legitimate self-interest,
'ihe questions today throughout the
world are largely industrial. Controversies that arise will originate
from that interest and if you succeed
in establishing the rules of the game
that will obtain in your dealings, the
main cause of friction and controversy will have been removed."
Greetings also were extended to tht
congress by Governor Foss, on behalf
of the state; Mayor Fitzgerald, for
the city; Harry A. Wheeler of Chicago, for the president of the Chambers of Commerce in the United
States, and Edward A. Filene, of Bos
ton, vice-president of the Internation
al Congress.
President Cannon-Legrand respond
ed for the Congress, speaking first ir.
French and then in English.
The international movement to re
form the calendar is making excellent
progress, said  M.  Louis    Cannon-Le

opening    of the  Fifth    Internationa'

An amusing incident occurred at
the flsh platform, Hull, some Ume
ago.
As a large' black dog, Rover, wa*
standing near the edge of the platform he was very much annoyed by
the conduct of a small dog, which
persisted in snapping at his legs, etc.
Rover for a long time bore the indignities with seeming indifference,
but at length, losing all patience, he
turned upon his tormentor and, seie
ing him by tiie back of his neck,
dropped him into the dock.
The struggles of the unfortunvt*
animal were viewed with apparent interest by Rover, who, at la.<t. *eeim:

Thrilling  Episodes Culled  From  the
Horrors of War.
A veteran of the British army in
India once saw a Btrange sight on a
battlefield. As lie tells the story a
squadron of cavalry had been held
in reserve under cover of a field battery and an infantry regiment. The
artillery duel had ended. The assault
of tlie enemy in overwhelming numbers had been repulsed by the steadiness of the infantry. While a cload
of smoke hung over the field the eaval. j received an order to charge with
drawn sabers.
The troopers started in close order
for the enemy's line. Midway ttjey
met a destructive flre from earthworks
in front ol tliem and from the woods
on their flank. A young cavalryman,
with his saber dra^n, was shot in the
heart while Iead����j in the first file.
The horse halted, swerved to the right
and turned back, but the rider kept
his seat without flinching. The other
troopers went on. carried the earthwork by storm, rode at full gallop after the retreating force and converted
defeat into rout.
The dead trooper meanwhile was
returning with white face and with
the blood streaming from his wound.
Under his nerveless hand the horse
received neither check nor leading
and made its own way toward the
infantry, which was now advancing
rapidly. As Lie smoke lifted the
soldiers saw the solitary rider coming, with one hand in a death grip
upon tlie saddle, while the other still
held the sword rigidly clasped.
It was a sight never to be forgotten
���the galloping horse, with the dead
cavalryman still mounted and looking
grim and fierce. It was not until the
rider had gone fifty yards from the
spot where he had been killed that
he rolled ofl the horse.
A similar story is told of Captain
Nolan, who delivered the fatal blundering order for the charge of the famous Light Brigade. He was seen on
the field of Ralaklava, riding from
the hills where the staff officers were
drawn up to the quarter where the
brigade was .stationed. The charge
began, and what was left of the brigade returned in broken groups;
At last Captain Nolan was seen galloping rapidly toward the centre of
the field. He was firmly seated.
straight as an arrow and ruling well.
Suddenly the horse swerved and the
rider toppled over.
The officers who were nearest rushed forward, but when they lilted him
from the ground they found him lifeless. Like the Indian sab'rman, he
had been shot and instantly hilled,
but his horse had carried him safely
across the field, out of the reach of
the pursuing Cossacks.

The latest recorded use of the ducking stool in Kngland (the designation
cucking and ducking were, of c.">urs��k
synonvmous ,ic the days, of Queen
Elisabeth) was in 1300., It was at Uo-
minster, wlien a woman named Jenny
Pi<-es. alias Jane Corran, was paraded" through the town on the ducking
stool and ducked in the water near
Kenwater bridge by order of the mag
istrates. In 1817 another woman, called Sarah Leake, was wheeled round
the r��!ace in the same chair, b-it not
ducked, as, fortunately for her, th*
water was too iow. The inetrumenf of
punishment in question has not been

SLIDE DOWN ROPE    .
AND MAKE ESCAPE
Two Prisoners Get Clear Away from
Vancouver Temporary Jail���    .
No Trace.
Vancouver, Sept. 25.���Two prisoners escaped from the city's temporary police station on Railway avenue,
just east of Gore avenue, by sliding
down a rope from the fourth story at
the rear, shortly after dark last evening. At a late hour last night no
tra<je ot the men had been found, although the entire police and detective torde was working on the case.
One of the prisoners was a member
of the ��ang who is alleged to have severely i beaten Police constable Mar-
rlott on Cordova street, last Friday
night, when he had asked them to
"movo ou." He was brought up for
trial on Saturday and demanded tor
further hearing untll the later part
of this week.
The escape was effected by means
of a long rope which the prisoners
had secured, probably by meana oi
outside acoomiiLcts who hai ainug
gled it to them. Gaining ajfceBS to
one of the windows on the top floor ot
'what was formerly a warehouse, thc
two secured the rope to a solid fa*
tening, and then, stealthily they slipped over the ledge, aud one at a time
disappeared down the steep wall,
dropping finally to the freight shed
that extends along the row of warehouses, parallel with the ri.lroad
tracks.
The vicinity at that hour wa3 alive
r,'ith people going home from work,
hut-apparently no one sa.v the fugitives.
BOW SALVATION
RESTS WITH GIRLS
Not Fear But More    Education    Will
Solve the Problem   of   Sex
Hygiene.
Washington, Sept. 25.���When women make it plain that they will not
marry unless Uie groom can produce
a doctor's .certificate of perfect health,
on that day the problem of sex
hygiene practically will be solved, declared Dr. Ira S. Wile, of New York,
in an address today before the International Congress of Hygiene and
Demography.
Pointing to charts, models, photographs and life-sized casts illustrating
the effects of various diseases, he declared that he would rip out the
whole thing, with the exception of th 2
section on eugenics.
"Do not suppose that the chamber
of horrors has a moral, reforming or
even an educational effect?" he ask
ed. "I do not believe fear is an ethical concept to appeal to. Our efforts
must be turned, not toward dragooning the young to do right, but toward
the Inculcation of that right thinking
���which leads to right doing. The education of girls is the crux of the prob
lem. They can most effectively train
the boys." - '' -

NATURALIZATION  LAWS
NEED LOOKING INTO
London, Sept. 24.���One of the serious anomalies of the present naturalization laws, as pertaining to the certificates issued within the Empire,
was mentioned in tho City of London
revision court yesterday, when Mr
Joseph Fortune, a elty business man,
claiming a registration vote. "Where
were you naturalized?" "Zululand,'
replied Fortune. "Then," said the revising barrister, "I am afraid your
certlflcate applies only to Sohth Africa, and does not bold good ln England." Fortune persisted that his certificate specially stated that he was a
British subject, and Claimed, though
wronglv, that he was naturalized
throughout the British Empire. The
claim was dismissed.

SEVEN
ROUND THE MESS TABLE
BY THE MARTIAN.
New Westminster certainly has no
reason to be ashamed of the reception accorded to His Royal Highness
The Governor-General, on Saturday.
The preparations were npt perhaps on
so lavish a scale as those of our sister city, but what we lacked ln that
respect was certainly made up for by
the whole-hearted cries of welcome
and ringing cheers with which the
duke was greeted. To us ln the West,
on the very marches of the Empire,
the progress of royalty in our midst
Is an'Innovation, and as a general
rule the people*here although ln all
cases, just bursting to do so, do not
seem to be able to grasp that cohesion and spontaneity which character-
lacs the world-renowned British ch?er,
but those which 1 heard at Tlpperary
Park, were certainly the nearest approach to lt that I have encountered
yet.
The Guard of Honor which met His
Royal Highness at the B. C. Electric
Railway's Depot was found by the
104th Regiment and was composed of
the band and thirty-seven rank and
file ane one officer from Chilliwack,
thirteen men from Cloverdale and
two officers and twenty-six men from
the City. A total, without the band,
of seventy-six rank and fle and three
officers, which, as the establishment
of the regiment is about two hundred
of all ranks Is not altogether creditable, the onus of the discredit certainly falls upon the two New Westminster companies who, although parading In their own city, could only
scrape up twenty-six between them,
whilst the two detached companies
from tho Fraser Valley brought down
flfty men and a band; that can hardly
be called a creditable performance
for the Royal City, can lt? I havf
been more than once accused of -unfairness in regard to my criticisms of
the local militia, but if those figures
are correct, and I got them on excellent' authority, they amply justify
anything I may have said. As a matter of fact I have never adversely
criticized the men who comprise the
104th, it would be foolish to round upon those who do turn out for the
faults of those who do not, but what
I have very frequently stated ls that
there ls undoubtedly something wrong
with their conditions of service or organization which needs to be probed
and remedied. The Guard of Honor
which paraded here on Saturday did
its best under adverse circumstances
that -we will all admit, but it was not
to be compared in an/ way with
either that found by the Sixth Regiment or that of the 72nd Highlanders
both of Vancouver. The regiments of
that city seem to be able to get anything they want in the way of clothing and equipment and that being so
whv cannot the 104th? If tho Sixth
and 72nd .can wear the review order
to which they are respectively entitled, why should our boys parade
ln ill-fitting serges and caps?���and
those of varying patterns. Surely lt
ls time that some steps were taken
to provide tunics and head-dress for
ceremonial parades? The Fusilier
busby would comprise the latter I
suppose, and would look a good deal
smarter than the ugly white helmet
worn by the captain of the guard. On
worn by the captain of the guard. (1
presume it was he as he followed the
Invariable custom of accompanying
His Royal Highness when inspecting
| tliat body.). On proceeding to the
Crescent another striking contrast
was formed by the appearance of the
two dapper and smart non-commissioned officers In their neat and
well fitting rifle uniforms, deta'.l-
upon the reception platform.
The old brigade turned out ln
force, and happy Indeed did His Royal Highness seem, to be amongst
them, especially to those who had
served with him in '55, his pleasure
on meeting a veteran of the raid was
most apparent. It is safe to say that
every arm and every branch of both
services was represented. The Indian native army was present, about
40 strong, and much comment was
passed upon their soldierly bearing.
��� The Governor-General expressed
his keen satisfaction to Mr. H. Sav
age, the prime mover In the National
Reserve movement, that a Start had
been made to bring the corps Into being in Canada, and promised on his
return to Ottawa to do all ln his power to further theTJeheme.
Altogther we can feel th^t we havo
shown our loyalty to the crown, as
represented by our Governor-General,
in a most sincere manner, but our efforts should unceasingly be directed
towards the Improvement and support
of our contribution to Canada's first
line of defence, the 104th Regiment,
and thereby show that our patriotism
is concrete as well as sentimental.
In Major Brlttain's passing to the
reserve of officers, the Corps of
Guides in particular, and the militia
in general, have lost one of the most
efficient, conscientious and painstaking officers that it has ever been my
great pleasure to meet.
ALASKAN VOLCANOES
STILL IN ERUPTION
volcanoes of Alaska, is again in eruption. Lieut. Prosser, of the Signal
Corps, who returned to Valdez from a
trip of' inspection along the/ military
telegraph line between Valdez and
Fairbanks, reported tbat Mount Wran-
gell is throwing out large volumes of
smoke and lava. Instead of one crater there are now at least seven vents,
and with the aid of field glasses lava
can be seen issuing from the openings
and flowing down across the glacier.
This is believed to be the explanation of the high water in the stream 5
draining that district. From Kotsin i
it ts reported that the sulphurou i
fumes are so strong that prospector)
working near Kotsina glacier hav j
been driven out.
Seattle, Sept. 25.���Mail advices
from Valdez, say Mount Wrangell, the
most  widely  known  of the  smoking
Policeman Accidentally Killed.
Philadelphia, Sept. 25.���One policeman was instantly killed, another
Tenderer unconscious and a number
of others were less seriously shocked while attempting" to' report from
call boxes in West Philadelphia late
yesterday, when the police telephone
wire became heavily charged with
electricity from a feed wire.
