While thc delegates expressed themselves as pracically unanimous, the
election of an executive committee to
govern the operation of the bureau
was deferred until such time S3 the
actual numebr of municipalities wishing to co-operate in the movement
could be ascertained.
Vancouver's Sympathy.
The constitution of the ore'anl7atio:i

Mr. E. Hi Heaps, of Vancouver, who

BISHOP RETURNS
TROM COAST TOUR
Visited    Sechelt    and    Howe    Sound
Points���Plans for New Churches
and Missions.
Bishop De Pencier is back from a
very eujoyable ten day's holiday and
business trip up the coast during
which he \laited for tlie first time several places where church work will
be undertaken in  the  near future.
On Sunday, August 4, he held service at Roberts .Creek and he spent
the following f e\v days at Sechelt and
Howe Sound. While touring along
Howe Sound the bishop visited the old
, church  standing on  the    hill    above

before the year is over,  to hold ser-
riiultiiritl communities acted as buf

financial  depression.
Mr. Ii II. Heaps, when asked to
speak on behalf cf Vancouver, declared ihat no invitation had been extended to any Vancouver public body
to attend the meeting, otherwise a
representative would havo been present.
In the opinion of Mr. Heaps the |
want of transportation was the greatest drawback In settling the municipalities to tlie north, and this applied
not only to electric tramways and
railway lines but to the roads.    The
vices. The church was built several
yeara ago, but has come in for very
little use on account of the lack of
reads and other transportation from
the various points In the district. It
is expected that the new government
road from Sechelt through Gibson's
Landing will be completed soon and
this will enable people settling in the
district lo reach Gibson's Landing
without difficulty.
On Sunday, August 11, tha bishop
held a delightful service in the pavilion of the Seaside Park hotel, Port

what when he declared flatly that Mayor Lcc of Westminster was responsible for the fact that Mission was not
at present linked with Vancouver bv
a direct carline which went via Port
Moody. The plans for this carline,
he said, had been proposed by the
Western Canad Power company, afterwards bein;; approved from Mission to i'ort Moody, and In his opinion the work would have been proceeded with had It not been for the
interference on thc part of Westminster.
��� At this point thej-e was some objection raised by Mr. Edward Goulet and
Mr. B. 0. Walker, but the chairman
overruled it.
Westminster's Defence.
Publicity Commissioner Stewart
Wade, of Westminster, said that the
New Westminster people could not
be blamed for Interfering (If such
was the case) when a transportation
company proposed to run a line which
made tbe municipalities of the Fraser
Valley trlbutify to Vancouver. If
any diversion of trade should take
place It was reasonable snd right that
Westminster should bave tlie prefer
Westminster, he continued, had aided the proposal to establish the car-
line, even advocating lt to rue as far
as North Bend, and the action of the
city had been in defence of an agreement with the transportation company
which had broken Its promise to Include Westminster ln the proposed
line.
Direct Communication.
Acting Reeve Lougheed, of Maple
Ridge municipality, declared that the
people which he represented felt
strongly the need for direct communication to Vancouver through Port
Moody, but thought also that a branch
Uno siiould be built to New Westminster.
Reeve Mare then said that the Coquitlam public-bodies would refuse to
Join unless the bureau was prepsred
elon at West Vancouver and Capllano
within a short time.
PREMIER ANC'ERS QUESTION
Knows of No Britisher "Who Is Not
Welcomed In Canada.
London, Aug. 16.���Premier Borden,
questioned regarding advertisements
saying "No English need apply," re
ported as having appeared in the
Western Canadian press, declared he
knew of no Britisher emigrating from
tbe BTltlsh Isles who was not welcomed by Canadians, and there was
no reason why they should not succeed ln the Dominion. Men and women were not lost to the Empire when
they emigrated to Canada. Opportunity walked side by side with everyone who was capable, and Industrious
men were needed today to settle ln
the land, while agricultural laborers
and domestic servants wero ln great
demand.
Deny Prince's Visit.
London, Aug. lft.���The report that
the Prince of Wales and his brother
Albert planned to visit Canada and
the United States was authoritatively
denied here today. It Is not denied,
however, that King George and Queen
Mary discussed such a trip. The
king is planning several tours for his
sons.
to support Coquuiams demand for direct communication to Vancouver.
The motion of Acting Reeve Lougheed which expressed the opinion that
the association shoul.1 endorse the
project for direct communication from
Mission to Vancouver via Port Moody,
providing a branny line was constructed to Westminster was carried unanimously.
It was decided to hold the next
meeting at Huntingdon.
. 'There was a hot time In the council last night". This phrase f.tted the
unoker ot the Trades aud L*i>r council held in the labor temple ust even
ing where fun reigned supreme unti
a late hour when with the singing ol
the national anthem, the proceedings
came to a stop. President R. A.
Stoney held down the chair, and bad
such a galaxy of stars to back up the
proceedings that even the man whe
was suffering from melancholy got
imbued with joviality and helped to
make the affair one great success.
There were speeches, songs, jig
dancing, musical solos.and duets that
dazzled eveu the most optimistic of
the bunch and not one union failed to
add its little quota to the evening's
entertainment.    ��
The chairman led off'by stating the
reason of the gathering, which was to
aid the funds to send a delegate to
the Trades and Labor Congress of
Canada, which meets ln Guelph, Ont.,
in September. Alderman Dodd followed with a ringing speech on the merits of unionism in Westminster, and
how it had affected the hours and
wages of the working men in the city.
Referring to delegate Cameron, who
would represent Westminster at the
city of Guelph, the council could not
have made a bejter selection. He
vas a man who had the Interests cf
.he city and the working men of the
uty at heart, and hls report following the convention, Alderman Dcdd
'elt assured, would be of interest to
everyone.
The speaker touched on the progress
that labor unions had made in the
Royal City during the past four years,
low they had started with few men,
out had steadily grown into such projections that the members had a right
o have some say on the work going
on in  the city.
Following a few musical selections,
Oelegate D. S. Cameron made a brief
;peech   cn   the  present  outlook    fcr
.vorkingmen here and stated that tbe
;rcv.dsd   atUcdinee  at   the    smoker
lemenstrated tlie strength of the labor
movement  in  the city.    He- felt  flat*
e'!Vd   that   the  council   bad   selected
him to  represent  it, and  assured his
'Tenrers   that   with   the   assistance  of
the other delegates from  this    prov-
nce, the  interests of  British  Columbia would be well looked after at the
galhering.
In an excellent speech, Secretary B.
D. Grant gave a resume of the conditions that working men are fighting
for at this stage of the World's life.
A feature of the musical program
was a violin solo cf Mr. E. Maiden,
who received a hearty encore, and a
vote of thanks for Ills presence In
making the show a success.
Among those who contributed to the
program of the evening were Messrs
Pursehouse,  J.  Bope,  A.  B.  Christie,
Jameson,   Harris.  Collins.   P.  McKur-
cher, B.  D. Grant,    W. Dodd,    D. S.
Cameron,   T.   Turnbull,   J.   Cameron,
Archibald, and Harry Morrison.    The
laterlng  establishment    was    In  the
hands of J. B. Chockley, and with a>
ible corps of assistants, nothing wa

evening's entertainment.

"What's  he  doing,  George ?    Gold
mining ?    Finding  a foundation   for
the new railroad bridge ?   Locking fo.
a   salmon    6elne,   eh ?"   These and
numerous  other such  like  questions
have been pointed at George Rennle

bridge, the    past   two   days   durln.

However,  acting on the  ad.Oie  c
City  Engineer  Blackman.  it  waa dc
cided to cut off the supply on Thurg
day, and the diver with his two as
sistants  have been  caulking  up  the
holes in the flanges, where the watei
from  Lake  Coquitlam  was finding  f
way into the river.   The work is   ex
peeted to consume another two days
and, in order to supply water to the
residents of the city who are living on
the island, the temporary three   inch
main, which is laid on the bridge, was
connected  up  last evening.    Special
couplings are being used  where the
swing span joins the main  structure
and whenever a boat is passing these
are disjointed.
The leaks in the big main, it is
thought, have been caused by shifting
sands, which left one of the joints unsupported, with the result that thr
main sank deeper into the ground

Canadian Northern railway to construct a fixed bridge over the river,
while the residents of Langley desire

It ls understood that the Dominion
resident engineer wrote a letter to
the municipal council recently, asking that body whether lt would con

iogt of dismantling any, vessel or

The permit for the f63,000 six story
apartment house and stores to be
erected on Begbie street next to the
Russell hotel, was taken out by Mr.
G. A. Hankey at the building inspec
tor's office yesterday afternoon.
According to the plans presented
for the Inspect'on cf the building inspector the buil'ling will be one of the
most novel ever constn-.cted in the
oity inasmuch as It will be built of
material that will make it the most
modern and as near flre proof as
human skill and brains cm make it.
Reinforced concrete will be used

addressed the meeting and asked individual support of the members, in
the establishment of their plant which
they proposed to have In operation
here about the first Of November.
The Burin Service.
Another echo of the Burin freight
boat service to Victoria was heard
when a long letter was read from the
owners protesting against an article
which had found Its way Into the columns of an evening newspaper.
As Mr. K. Myers had been electee?
a member of the board of trade earlier In the evening, he was able to>
give an account of this matter ai taken up by the Progressive association.
He declared that support should be
given the Burin on account cf the fact
that the boat bad maintained iu schedule In spite of adverse conditions.
The question was referred to the
navigation committee in view of the
fact that it might be deemed advisable
to arrange a three-cornered trip with
Seattle, Victoria and Westminster aa
the ports of call,
The Royal Visit.
Several members expressed a wish
to learn If any preparations were being made ln anticipation of the coming visit of the Duke of Connaught
but no Inkling of the procedure under

It was pointed out that Westminster

Duke's Itinerary which had not made

floors between each' suite will be

Perhaps the greatest feature cf the
building lies ln the fact that it will
have an electrically operated elevator
running from the roof to the basement, and tbis. It was stated, would
be the flrst of Its kind to be inserted
In a residential structure in Westminster.
There will be flve stores on the
ground floor of the building faoing on
the 66 feet frontage on Begbie street,
and 20 suites will be arranged on tbe
remaining flve floors above. Every
room will be fitted up in most luxurious and modern style. It is tbe intention of Mr. Hankev to later extend
the building through to the back of
the lot until it reaches Alexandra
street.
The quarters of the caretaker will
be located In the basement which will
also contain the heating apparatus
and a warehouse room for each cf the
stores. The architects for the building are Thornton' and Jones, and the
contractor Is Mr. E. C. Martin.
Coinoldently with the issuing of this

Due to the unseasonable conditions
on Thursday and Friday morning the
attendance of farmers and garden
truck people at the weekly market
ysterday was not up to the usual. Despite the adverse weather conditions,,
however, their were a goodly number of buyers on hand, and as a result business all round was better
than could be expected under the circumstances.
The only notable feature of the
day's doings was the extreme dullness that attended the trading in potatoes and other vegetables. Spuds
as a result of the slack inquiry dropped to a level price of $17 per ton
wholesale, while declines were also
recorded In beets, carrots and turnips
All those vegetables were ln excessive supply and the break in prlct
was not entirely unexpected by mosl
market dealers.
There was a fair offering of fruit
especially apples of the Duchess As
tnkau varieties No. 1 stocks of which
sold at $1 to $1.50. For the poorei
quality of apples there was very lit
tie inquiry.
Business In the fowl market was
very good, the" majority cf the Rales
recorded being made at the ruling
priceB of the previous week.
Mutton and pork were in good demand at the meat stalls, but the deal-
��� < had I'He difficulty in supplying
their purchasers. Veal and beef were
���u.i. bo plentiful as usual, but nc
change in the charges took place.
Eggs were in keen demand and \v:tu
the supplies only up to the average
every dozen was pleared off the market before closing time. Prices, however, remained unchanged though
flrm.

the name of Benjamin H. Tripp he
had served a long term in the Massachusetts state prison, after a career
of crime In New York.
Coming- to this city in 1907, after
completing hls sentence ln the Massachusetts prison Burke earned an
honest living as a woodcarver, at a
trade he had learned while In Jail,
'"''aking an active Interest ln reform
politics he was prevailed upon to accept the nomination to council.
Shortly after his election he wa"
recognised by a fellow convict and
blackmailed until, driven to desperation, he determined to resign and tell
his own story. ^
According to Burke's story, appearing ln the Philadelphia Inquirer today, tinder his signature, for years before he became a convict at Boston,
he had lived the life of a thief, a pickpocket, and porch-climber. When he
was arrested, previous to his conviction at Boston, he was called the
"Prince of Flat Workers." He says
he started ln life as a street wa'f on
the east side of New York, selling
newspapers. He was hanging around
the corners of the east side when hc
began the life of a crook, which he
now. about In his forty-third year, has
confessed to.
"Gopher men," the species of croo';r
who confine themselves to cracking
and robbing safes, were the first ef
the underworld he fell in with. They
used him, so his story runs, to visit
places where they thought a safe
might be worth rifling. Then he dr tied In with a gang of 'moll buzzers,"
that class of thieves who, he explains
are pickpockets and who make a spe
cialty cf snatching women's handbags.
After this Burke says he went west
with several "yeggtnen" and in Chicago. Kansas City and San Francisco
lh the '80's he was the assistant of
desperate thieves.
Upon returning to New York, he be
came a gambler and then a sntak
thief. Later he went to Boston, when
after robbing many houses, he was
caught and convicted. Judge Bond
sentenced him on Dec. 16. 1NH6, to not
less H'an b<\sxb. years.    Upon his re-

THE OWJER'OF THE BATH.
It is something,, cf a relief to find in
the columns of a London newspaper,
side by sld��, ��iith a description cf
the accesfefoti cf "the new Emperor of
Japan, a .lengthy dissertation upon the
proceedfngs oil the Royal Sanitary
���Congre33, then in session at York.
"Is the-Englishman fond cf his
bath���?." KfjUJlf deep and moving sub
ject that agitated these learned doctors, ar<.hft*eMs and scientists, and
from an amusing paper read thereon
it appearr'tfiat "the wash baisin was
the sole vesMdJa daily use by approxi
mately 40 m|UlJcn people, while in
hotels some five per cent, only of the
.guesis used the bath.
In t'ie noble order of the bath
Scotsmen take first place, while next
are ranged Englishmen, Irishmen,
American women, English women,
American men, Frenchmen, Germans.
The comparative infrequency of bathing by American men was said to be
due io bashfulness.
Diving into the statistics concern
ing the order qf frequency in whic!
the different classes of persons too1-
baths, it appears that as years increase the daily bath habit declines
Military men came first with rae'.n;
men a good second. Much amusement
was caused by the statement tha
there was rot sufficient cvldanc.

clergy, but .thoir, average did net seen
to be high,'as ho doubt the cost was

Senator Gorman, of New (Jfork, Is
out with an interpretation of the
treaty which makes the English language ridiculous. He claims, the
above quoted words, mean, In effect,
that the vessels cf all nations are to
be treated equally, aftur they have observed the rules of traffic imposed by
the United States, the canal's owner.
That is equivalent to saying that two
articles sell for exactly the same price
���except that one sells for one dollar
i and the other for five dollars.
Britain gave up considerable for the
shrewd assurance she obtained that
all vessels should be treated alike in
the Panami Canal. ForBritatn carries half the freightage oh the oceans
of the world, and should a tax be
placed on foreign vessels, by the
United States, it would mostly be i
tax. on British vessels.
It is hardly likely a nation as large
and so thoroughly civilized as the
United States would break its form
ally plighted word for a mere coin
mercial advantage. And the other
thought to which the present situation
gives rise is that the Hay-Pauncefote
treaty is another triumph for British
diplomacy, the full extent of which we
are now only beginning to realize. -

LIBERALS   AND   NAVY.
From the Globe, Toronto, of Aug. 6,
the following' letter will be found to
be self-explanatory. It is signed by a
Mr. W. D. Lighthall, a life-long Lib-
oral.   It rejids as follows:
"While, prdinarily, like most other
Canadians, a disbeliever in special
war preparations'and an earnest advocate iof .peace, il do not see how we
can overlook the serious dangers of
the present situation to ourselves and
tbe empire. What Is quite plain is the
preamble of the German navy bill,
which declare* the purpose of that
new and, vast arni^ment to be that the
greatest'rmmtirfib' nation' (which is
ourselves) shall be put in peril of Its
existence. This clear and official dec
laration, followed up by such enormous preparations, cannot possibly be
ignored except by fools. Tho irresistible voice of this'country, If I understand it right, ls in favor of the
swift do4ngr��t. wJuitever may be our
���duty. The present juncture is one
which- v^g must������aparate from all
party jlisnuu-s k^s to a permanent
naval pejlty for Canada. The question now hefore us is that of an emer-
gencjt.jKdfty. All^UfTerences of party
or personal views ought to be set
aside for the time being and a loyal
and undivided national support given
the government iniany action or expenditure it may see the aeed of making for the common defence of the
��mpirc We Liberals will have no difficulty on such a course. Prom what
1 know of the French-Canadians I am
-convinced that their general opinion
is ln the same sense as that of their
Hritish tui lowsubjects.

John Galsworthy Discusses Our Work
In Penal  Reform.
It vyis in 181.3 that Elizabeth Fry
began ner work among prisons nnd
prisoners, and in 1012 Urge numbers
of women, for considerations into the
merits of wliich one cannot at the
moment enter, are experiencing tho
treatment which society metes out to
those who challenge its mandates.
Though conditions to-day nre infinitely letter than hundred years
ago, a growing opinion exi-ts that
prison methods do not tend to the
transform,!tion of an nnti-soeiiil into
a social lieiriL'. This is not a criticism of prison officials, nor iml-ed of
administration. It goes deeper than
that.

To-day the us��- of the oVSMeaf

th.ories of erini s and punfshment

not realiz1 as yel that the object of
punishment shoul 1 not be itiers deterrence from further crime. But firsi
and foremost the object should be tc
transform the bass individual passions of the criminal into powers that
can serve society.
Society to-day is like a schoolmaster beating a naughty hoy "fnr his
own good." rather than arousing his
instincts in some more interesting
direction. The t"ndency to regard
crime as a disease is dangerou*. It
may be rather a profitable disekse to
steal gold watch'-*. But it seems unlikely that to lock a man u;��, t��> withhold from him the pleasures of hia
kind, to bran.1 him a* an offender,
will bring him hack to daily life an
honeater man.
On the contrary, prison often turns
sn amateur criminal into a prof**
���lonal. What, ind.-ed. would he vour
own attitude to a man who asked you
for employment, admitting that he
was a convict? Dare you <��mploy

Crecn   Shirts   in   Do  or  Die   Mood���
Kavanaugh  to  Hold  Whistle���
Line-up of Teams.
With Jim Kavanaugh acting as referee, the eleventh game of the B. C.
Lacfcsse schedule should furnish
some excitement this afternoon at
Recreation Park, when the two teams
meet ence more. According to reports from Vancouver the Green
Bhlrft are not letting the grass grow
under their feet, and will make another attempt to stop the winning career cf the Salmon Bellies.
To anyone who has witnessed the
games In the past, it will require some
extra effort on the part of the Vancouver twelve to turn the trick at
this period, for the Red Shirts were
never playing a better game. It has
taken the Vancouver public a long
time to find out that there if as much
difference as between chalk and
cheese in the work of the Royals this
year compared to that of last year's
playing.
The presence of the Minto Cup in
the Royal City for suc!i a length of
time, apparently got on the nerves of
the players, and, believing they could
uallpp'auy aggregation ia the fleld,
they allowed their trainin; rules to
lax, with the result that the imported
stars of Mr. Ccn Jone3 stepped in and
walked off with the silverware.
The Salmon Bellies have attended
to training duties this season right
from the outset and have clearly demonstrated their superiority over the
green shirts in seven of the ten
games played. Only on one occasion
this season have the Vancouvers defeated their opponents fairly and
squarely. That was the second game
Cf the series in Vancouver. The other
two will be remembered, one of them
was when Mr. Joe Reynolds had
charge of the whistle, and the other
the Royals defaulted.   *
Twice on their own grounds have
they bit the dust after a hard struggle, and if the players go into the
(Uht this afternoon with that grim
determination to take another fall
tut of the Vancouvers, nothing can
possibly stop them from winning. It
is expected that Kavanaugh will rule
the play with a flrm hand, and if he
Is successful in doing away with all
the rough work that was all too frn-
cn.vnt with tho player* bt both teama
earl'er In the season, the tall salary
he Is drawing for the remaining
games will not be ill spent, and will
in fact, be a means of creating a revival in the national game out here
00 the coast.
The Vancouver line-up will probably show another change, Mag McGregor, the former Tecumseh, whose
work this season has been way below
that of last year when he visited the
ccast.'ls slated to be displaced by
l'hel\n, George Matheson again making his appearance with the team.
As ton. Manager Gray, he still keeps
the inpenetrable silence regarding his
formation which has characterised the
Salmon Belly leader throughout the
Heaeon, but it Is doubtful whether h<5
will make any changes in his winning
team. However, It can be confidently
cvpected that when he sees a safe
chance to work in Hyland and McCarty into the game, he will do bo.
Both these players hare come out on
the Pacific elope with the Intention of
making their home here, and the McCarty of today Is a changed man, as
far as playing abilities are concerned,
to wbat he was when he arrived,, ia
town early in the spring.

It did not take long to determine
whether a rugby team should be formed in the Royal City. The call was
answered, and from now on the followers of the game will have an opportunity of witnessing, what should be
Interesting games between the Royals
and the different Vancouver teams.
It Is realized by the players themselves that there ls little chance of
breaking all records during the flrst
season, but with the material on Hand,
the team should be able to give a good
account of themselves in the union. A
meeting of the union is to be held on
Monday evening in Vancouver wheni
the schedule for the season ' will be ���
made up. The opening game will be
played on Sept. 14, most probably tn
this city. ���
Several men, residents   ln the  dis-:
trlcts tributary to New Westminster,
have come forward with their  names
and state their intention of competing
for places on the team.   This invitation   still  holds  good  to  any  former.

Soccer Training  Begins.
With the approach of the scccer
season, naturally all eye3 are turned
toward the different line-ups of the
c'ty teams. It waa feared at flrst
that the Senior Amateurs would drop
out of the Vancouver and District'
league and the players divide up
among the city league club3. Not so
however, for at a meeting held thir
week enough enthusiasm was shown
to decide at once that Westminster
would throw the gauntlet to Vancouver and the other clubs forming the
league.
There are enough players In the
city to furnish I <Uh the Senior Ama
teurs and the Rovers with strong
elevens and it is to be hoped that
both aggregations will pull together
and do away with any semblance ofi
bickering. The schedule of the Rovers
will be made up on Monday night in
Vancouver, so that the other organization will have a chance to arrange
theirs with little fear of clashing.
The Rovers have been practicing
for some time now and with the early
approach of the date when they meet
the Celtics in a benefit game, the cohorts of Manager Grant should be ln
the pink of condition. The appointment cf a trainer for the club is a new-
departure altogether, but there Is
nothing like being prepared, and his
work with the club should be the
means of bringing to the city several
of the cups that are to be competed
tpr in the league this winter. The
3enior Amateurs begin training this
afternoon on the Sapperton ground!,
ind the invttatlon is open to aU to
turn out and show their prowess with
the ball. There appears to be no
dearth of players, but If another
comes along he will be given a fair
chance of making good with the team.
C'ruggle for Mann Cup.
The Senior Amateur Lacrosse team
left last evening for Victoria, where
thev will meet the Capitals ln a crucial game this afternoon. At the present tlrae the race ln the amateur
league is getting interesting and the
key to the situation rests with the
Royals. The Victorias still have a;
chance of landing the Mann Cop. and
will let no chances slip by when they
clash this afternoon. The Royals'
line-up is a strong one and if the
home can only break Into some com- j

Several Instances of late have been
noticed in some ol the athletic teams
and clubs tn tbe city purchasing their
equipment outside of New Westminster, without flrst asking prices of the
olty merchants. For the size of the
town, Niw Westminster can boast of
athletic outfitters who are quite capable ot holding their own in the nature of supplies, nnd lt is ln all fairness that the cry has been raised
"support local tradesmen first" In-
steid of Journeying to Vancouver.
It is true their stock of goods, wher
quantity  Is mentioned,  does net  begin  to compare   with   the   d'ff'r^n'
stores In Vancouver, but as one of th
New Westminster  tradesmen states
"What we' have not got, we can  se
���������ire at the wholesale houses, with a
little delay as Is occasioned by golnr
to Vancouver."
As a gentle reminder to the mana
?��rs and seretarles of the dlfferer'

SPORTSMAN  Oh  N NETY. .
to ine present ���generation pr:��s-
fight* and cockfights seem as remote
as the Middle Ages, and suddenly to
come face to 'aee with a man. who
used to frequent the sparring matches
at Tom Spring's public-house in St.
Martin's Lane makes one realist) jut
how close tn us those barbarous times
are.
Such a man is Mr. Robert Andrews,
one of the best-known figures ia
Smithfleld Market. London, aud a
nonagenarian whose memory of hit
youth is as dear ns his knowledge
of yesterday's happening*. Five
o'clock in the morning sees Mr. Andrews at his accustomed post outride
his son's place of business in the market. For he is part and psreel of
Smithfleld, having been the flrst tenant to pay rent for premises in the
market at its opening in 1608.
Mr. Andrews was at one time in
business at t'ie now demolished Newgate Market, safs the City Press, and
later he supplied flowers and plants
for decorative purposes in the west
end. While thus engaged he so pleased the Hon. Mrs. Stonor that that
lady introduced him to the then
Princess of Wales, now Queen Alexandra. From the Prince Consort Mr.
Andrews received special privileges
entitling him to trade in th* precincts
of Windsor Castle.
Always an enthusiastic sportsman,
Mr. Andrews kept hunters for thirteen
year*. followiTjj the. Queen's Buck-
hounds. Among th* sporting friends
of his early days he numbered the
famous Beridigo. Ben Caunt. Tom
Spring, and Billy H��y*��, often sparring with them in ������friendtie.'."
���'They were all grand fighters,' he
says, "without the bluff and nonsense
we get nowadays."
Old Oak Common was then the favorite meeting ? la*o of the fraternity.
Bartholomew Fair In its declining
days is another ot Mr. Andrews' m*m-
ories; but" says he. it got very flat towards the end.
And now thi* living link with Uie
paat  spends  his  days  s.Uing on  a
poultry crate   in   Smithfleld Market. ]
thinking of the days that have bsen.

words were si characteristic of the
speaker ami the country that we may
we'l  consider their final monition:
"I tell you women, tl' danger t>

which we must convert into patriotic

chiefest danger lies in the fact that

rapidly-growing wealth, there is a
tendency tliat we shall become anaemic hair-splitters or flabby parasites
on the body politic. It is well that
H.J northern ohjIc should have a

that she have strong talons and a lirm

At the German election in January,
1912, the foeial Democrats polled
4,250,000 vot:s, or a little more than
one-third of all the votes given. How
rapidly ths Go.man Social D^mocra-
tiJ party has increased in strength
and power will be seen frxj the fact
that in 1881 the Socialist vote was
only 312.000.
In tii3 course of the last three decades the German Social Democratic
party has grown from a party of no
i .miicance to by far the st rouge.-1
party in Germuny. Why has it grown

has pursued d.*.ring the last twenty
years. The Kmperor himself has descended into the party arena and has
attacked the Social Democratic party.
In various speeches he had brande I
the Soc.al Democrats as "- band of
fellows not worthy to bear the name
of Germans," he has referred to them
as "enemies to the divinj order of
things,  without a  Fatherland."
It is, of course, ridiculous to de-
scr.b2 a party which embraces more
than 4,25U,(K.O grown-up men, and considerably mme than one-third of the
entire population of Germany, as "not
worthy tu bear the name of Germans"
and as "enemies to the divine order
of things, without a Fatherland."
However, it is equally ridiculous to
believe that tlie 4,250,(00 people who
gave their votes tu Social Democratic
candidates would subscribe to the orthodox Socialist doctrines, that they
trj Socialists at heart. According to
| th.' latest officii! report of tlie Social
1 Democratic pattv, it appea.j tliat that
I party had in 1911 only 837,0C0 mem-
I bers. 01 these members, io-'.ioo were
| women. If we deduct the number of
t..e women, we tind that of the 4.250.-
C00 Social Democratic voters, only
Ti'.I.WO, or about one-sixth of the total
numb.r, were avowed bo. iili-ts. We
may, therefore, ptrhaps conclude t.iat
the hulk of the paity, the remaining
3.521,000 men who voted for the Social
Democratic carty, wera not St.eial.sis
in reality.
As a matter of fact, enormous numbers ot Germans, who belong to a.l
classes  M society,  sueh  as  bankers,
ni-reh;.ms, doctors. lawyers, a'.iop-
keepir.,, school teachers, ami a \ery
lar^'e number of Government officials,
sue.i as ratlwayinen, postmen, an I
otiier civil servants, "vote red." Tiny
Vote Socialist because the Social Democrats are the only paity iu Germany winch determinedly and un-
ceasiogly opposes the German Government as at present constituted. It
is the only party which tights continuously against bureau.ratic; and
for real Parliamentary Government.
The German people has scarcely
a:.y influence over tlie national le.'i--

Although Gi many possesses tiie
in :t democrat.c francliie in the
world, manhood franchise, and al-
through pluial voting is illegal, Parliament is powerless, bicause the
Government is dependent not upon
the goodwill of the p'oplc and of the
Keicii.-tdg ma,or.ty, but ou t.ie goodwill of the Kniperor. lf it should
come to a conflict between the Kniperor and the Reichltaif, the Kmper.i r
can dissolve tlie Reichstag. A skillful
CiiauceUor will therefore g''t rid of a
democratic Reichstag by raising soni-'
imperial or national question, dissolve t:ie Reichstag, and appeal to the
patriotism of the people.
According to the German constitution thero ought to be one Reiclir-tag
member for every 10.1,0 0 of popul i-
tion. Since thp federation of tue
German Kmpire the German towns
have increased enormously in ; opula-
tion, while the country population
hag remained stationary. Nevertheless, no redistribution has taken p ace,
and thc result is that there are country districts where 10,000 voters return a member, while there are town
districts where 200,000 voters return
only one member. .  ,
The enormous success of the Social
Democratic party is not due to the
fact that the Socialist doctrines have
taken a strong hold upon the Genua')
populatii n. It is not due t'i the la I
that the German masses are poor. Ii
is due to the fact that tlie Geriuii
people are t red.of bein.: '.'o erne

They are tired of Iieing tricked w tii

tions and of a democratic franchise.

The two girls began to cram everything that would Incriminate tbem as

Then they waited for the coming ol

"How did you get wind of this?"
asked Vera.
"My brotVr Is a pretended spy for

In our interest It is be wbo warned

"But wbo has given me away?"
"1 dread to tell you."

Aiinn, us soon us the raiders come In,

she asked the question tbat sbe would
not be allowed to go aud tbat she
would be searched. Sbe gave Vera a
look, lowering ber eyes lo Vera's pocket, which Vera understood as well us
if lt bad been \vorda-"\vbatPver Is Id

Tbe problem before these girls, com-
muulcnted by a look from tbe one to
the other, must be worked oot indl-
ieci:y-ihnt U, by duplicity, and the
most perfect master of these smaller
arts Is a woman. Anna began the work
thus:
"I ask one fuvor of you." sbe said to
Omky. "If you Intend lo search me nnd
let me go, provided you flnd nothing
Incriminating upon me, I beg of you tu
have the work done nt once In order
Ihat 1 mny return to my home, where.
I assure you. I nm greatly needed. I
came here fo see Vera to nsk for a
remedy she ome recommended In ouse
of sickness, uud I should gu back at
once to au Invuild."
Orsky told the woman of Ills party to
take Anna Into unotber ruom and
Search her. 'lhe two women went out
leaving Vera wiih the police. Wbeu
tliey returned nnd the searcher reported nothing found Anna usked permls
sion to withdraw. It was grunted, and
going lo \ ern lo suy goodby the two
lucked theiucelves iu each other's nrins.
"Oh, my dear!" said Anna. "Ood
grant that you will come thruugh this
unscathed, lt cuntiut be thnt you.
whom 1 bnve considered so steady n
persou. cun have mixed yourself with
these horrid revolutionists."
So great was the speaker's emotion
that she been iue ipilte hysterical. The
others were much moved hy her emotion, except Orsky, who seetned tbe
same sphinx as before.
"I assure you, my dear Annn," replied Vera, "thnt your fears are
groundless. 1 desire these good |ier-
sons who are doing their duty by the
government to make a thorough search
so that tbey mny exonerate me emu
pletely from the charge of disloyalty
Let me know us soon us possible how
your dear one I.i netting on, uud I sin
eerely trust that the remedy I have
recommended  will be effective."
While this dialogue wns going on
the skirts of the two women were
pressed one against the oilier. They

to visit Atlantic City. Mr. ISnoth
thought the matter over lor sonic dny<

Booth whs up next inoruinv at five

over tho place inspecting the various

When the members til his family

"Corns i ii iu and have breakfast,

"Oh." he answered, "I bad breakfast over hii hour ago. 1 trie I to get
