Winston Spencer Churchill, first lord
of tbe admiralty, ln introducing today
the supplementary naval appropriation of $5,000,000 in the House of
'Commons fully endorsed as it was by
tbe prime minister, wil! cause graver
concern to the country than any warnings which have gone before.
Without the least offenslveness, the
first lord of the admiralty sketched
the "unprecedented" rise of the German fleet, which he described as "extremely formidable."

In order to bring home its size to
his hearers, Mr. Churchill likened It
to tbe great fleet which all saw at

by the mother country and the dominions and they could not In peace, or

Italian Draws Gun on Fellow Country-
man->-Prellrninary  Hearing
This Morning.
Fedele Cross!, an Italian, was arraigned before Police Magistrate Ed
monds yesterday morning on a charge
of attempting to murder a fellow
countryman, Frank Gonsales by uame.
Sunday morning.
His worship adjourned the case until this morning in order to give the
iccused an opportunity to secure
legal aid as well as an Interpreter,
for neither he nor his accuser could
understand English.
It is alleged by Gonsales that he
met Grossi near his home on Fourteenth street on Sunday about 10
o'clock. He asked the defendant for
the return cf a small loan, and an
argument ensued whicb he alleges
terminated in jGrossl drawing a revolver, at the same time giving voice
to the dire threat tbat he intended
to kill him.
Gonsales, it is stated, caught the
hand in which Grossi held the weapon and a man who was near at the
time, and witnessed the occurrence,
aided in disarming him.
Realizing the serious nature of the
offence which he had committed
Grossi fled to Vancouver, where he
was taken into custody late on Sunday night by two officers on the local
force who had' followed him to that
eity. . .
Grossi comes up for preliminary
hearing this morning.

Tokio, July 23.���The extreme ten
���titan (caused by the illness or Mut-
subfto. emperor of Japan, has greatly
relaxed, but tbe attending physicians
say that while there is reason to be
���encouraged, the public must wait a
week beforo assurances can be given
respecting the outcome.
The improvement noted Sunday was
maintained yesterday and the bulletins issued by the court physicians,
w'hidh are posted throughout the empire, indicated that the maladies from
which the emperor Is suffering are un-
'der control, at least temporarily.
The latest bulletin at 5 o'clock this
morning gave briefly the results of
the physicians' examination at 8 a.m.
'ft stated that the improved conditions
were generally sustained, but that his
���ma'Jedty 'had been unable tb sleep.
'The temperature of the patient at
that hour was 102.4. At 5:30 o'clock
a minister of the imperial household
gave out the information that the emperor was sleeping soundly and that
his appetite had improved.
Mutsiihlto yesterday was able to
speak to his' three grandsons, who
had been summoned from the summer
residence and also to the crown princess, 'to whom he entrusted a message
to the crown prinoe. For a consider
able period during the early davs of
'His tfldknesa 'the emperor was In a
semi-conscious condition, lapsing occasionally into unconsciousness. Delirium was .one of the symptoms that
caused grave concern to thn physicians, 'but the del'rlum has disappeared and the emperor's mind is comparatively efear.

and Sam Paul, were held without ball
until Wednesday.
Jack Sullivan, alleged go-between
for Rose and Lieut. Becker, was beld
as a material witness.

Underground  Wires.
Addressing the council on behalf of
the ratepayers of Fifth street, Mr. J.
J. Mahoney stated that lt was the
wish of residents there to effect a
better system ot lighting and' telephone connections on the street at tbe
same time that the improvements projected by the city on that thoroughfare were being carried out. Their
proposal was to have the telephone
and electric lighting wires; which
were so unsightly at the present time,
enclosed in conduit beneath tbe boulevard which would run down the centre of tbe street.
Alderman Kellington Informed the
delegation that the board ot work*
had already taken up the question of
providing conduits for lighting on
some of the streets, and would suggest that the Fifth street ratepayers
meet the board ot works and the light
committee at a spools', meeting on
Wednesday morning at 10 o'clock.
This was put In the form of a motion and adopted.
A Danger Soot.
When the board of works report
was read Alderman Henley pointed
out ln regard to the Item which recommended that the rails of the B. C. E.
R near the Fraser river bridge be
changed so as to improve the crossing, that this point was a very danger
ous one for vehicular traffic, several
accidents had occurred and these: had
been, ln part, due to the brush which
obstructed the view of pedestrians or
automobilists as they approached the
intersection with Columbia atreet It
would be a good plan, he thought, if
this brush was removed.
Alderman Kellington endorsed tbis
suggestion heartily and it was included In the report.

Edmonds, July 22.���Amazement waa
written on tbe faces of the Burnaby
councillors last evening when at the
regular meeting of the board of worfc*
a letter was read from Meters. McQuarrie and Martin, solicitors to th^
municipality, stating that an* order In
council had been issued by the minister cf railways at Victoria granting:
permission to the B. C. E. R. to cross
the streets of Burnaby in connection
with the Highland Park cutoff without consulting the council at all.
Tbat fact developed on July lg
when the municipal solicitors visited
tbe office of Mr. V. Laurtatt, solicitor
for the B. C. E. R., with the view oT
drawing up an agreement between Use
two parties. The letter stated that
Mr. Laursen had made ne

the arrangements i ii iiiWu! Several
grade crossings which 'appeared to
have been amicably settled, aald farther, he (Mr. Laursen) did not feel hi

the municipal solicitors in writing the

that the orders in council be repealed,
and that the municipality be given
an opportunity of being heard before
a new order was granted, was concurred in by the councillors, and in the-
meantime . all negotiations, with the

It is thought, however, tbat souse

between all parties concerned.
Sewerage Scheme.
A tv.Iter concerning Kast Burnaby
and tb" e'tj of New Westminster was
brou?' ' up witb the reading of a report from Construction Engineer
Thompson regarding the proposed
combined New Westminster and Barnaby sewerage scheme. The engineer .
here stated that "The present state or.

over the above general assessments
therefore I would not recommend that
Burnaby Join with the eity of Kew

How does it cmne there? And what
becomes of it?
It seems inconceivable tlist'sn much
money, for, all of which thero nm->t
have been owners at some time or
other, should be thus lost to sight. A
score or more of simple causes account
for the seeming impossibility. A iiiiii
may, for private or business reasons,
have accounts with more banks than
one. He dies; his executors know nothing of any hut his usual hank; the
balances at the others remain unclaimed.
He may die abroad, 'or disappear,
leaving no clue"'to his hanking affairs;
he may even forget that such and such
an account-'is not closed. In these
ind many similar ways��� mostly the
result of carelessness��� money is left
in the hands of bankers to .-well the
dormant funds.
For seven years the bank
the accounts open, prepared fo pay
over the balance to any who can prow
a title to it. This term expired, they
regard the forgotten gold as their own.
A million sterling of such ownerless
money went to build London's splendid Law Courts. The City, it is said,
has more than one magnificent bank
buildin? reared from the same handy
material. The Bank of Kngland, one
learns, provides pension for clerks'
widows out of such a fund.

to you ju*t like a man.' A few days
later a tall lady called. I fancied
<he might he Miss Marryat. She o ok-

"To this I  replied that Mr. Tinsley

her? 'I must see Bill himself,' she i
said. 'Tell the old bounder I calle I.'
'You're Miss Marryat?' I ventured.

The foregoing extract from an article In the Nation is based on the
outrage of which Premier and Mrs.
Asquith were the subjects on their arrival in Dublin, when a hatchet was
thrown at their carriage. This is
only one of a long series of attempts
by suffragettes to advance their
cause by violence. Mr. Asquith is
evidently a particular object of attack. Two weeks ago he was to be
entertained by the National Liberal
Club, but the meeting was countermanded because .the police hud obtained word that the premier would
be exposed to serious danger lf he attended the gathering at the club in
question as it would be manifestly
impossible to exclude all suspected
The arrangements for his Journey
to Dublin bad to be changed at the
last moment so as to circumvent the
plans of his would-be feminine assailants. Instead of taking the London
and Northwestern train to Holyhead
he traveled by another line to a provincial town, whence he motored to a
steamer from which all ordinary passengers were excluded.
Dublin dispatches show that the
suffragettes, balked In England, determined to continue their prosecution of the premier in Ireland. Four
English women were arrested in the
Irish capital after the hatchet throwing incident and the attempted incen-
Jlarlsm at the Royal Theatre, in
which the premier was to speak. One
report says that the police discovered

There is every Indication that the,,

new lea3e of life, and that before very
long tlie Royal City will- be proud in

community, the foundation of which,
was laid by soldiers, the descendants
of whom form a lar^e part of the population today, this is only aj it should
The Minister of Militia is expected
at the coast shortly, and there is no
doubt that he will personally enquire
into, and remedy as soon as possible,
the difficulties under wbich the regiment ha3 ben laboring. Next year I
am sure that the contribution of New
Westminster to our first line of defence will be such that it will excite
the admiration cf the neighboring
cities, Instead of the jeers we have
had to listen to of late, and which we
have had to feel were only too true.
In a recent conversation with a
member of the local unit, 1 was asked
if I did not think my criticisms of the
104th had been unduly severe. I
hardly think so myself. 1 cannot recall that I have ever attacked the personnel In anyway, but rather the fact
that, although it was apparent that
the regiment could not flourish under
the existing conditions of service, no
attempt has been made hy the authorities to improve the same. That has
been my contention all through, and I
still maintain that it is correct. Results show so plainly that there is a
rift cf no mean dimensions within
the lute, and yet as far as those on
the outside can see, no efforts at repair bave been made.
It would be foolish to assume that
the men here are not as good as the
men of other cities; they do not pretend to be better. I am sure they are
no worse, and of one thing we may
rest assured and that is that the
young men and old men of New
Westminster are just as ready to play
their part in the defensive scheme's of
the Empire as those of any other
parts under the flag. That fact being
taken for granted, as of course it
must be. for human nature is alike all
the world over,.then It is fairly safe
to assume that the fault is not that of
Individuals but rather of a condition
which ls impracticable and needs alteration. To effect this alteration ia,
I hope, one of the objects of Colonel
Hughes visit to British Columbia.

at the archbishop's palace here several years ago, when much evidence

Mexico City, July 22.���The dead, as
a result of Saturday's attack by Zapatistas on the Mexico-Cuernavaca
train, near Parres, on the edge of the
federal district, number 84. Three of
the wounded died last night in the
railway hospital..
���A seoond relief train which reached
Mexico City brought' 21 passengers
who had escaped the butchery and
made their way into Tres Marias, a
few miles away. Eleven were accounted for last night.
It is estimated that the train carried approximately 75 passengers, in
addition to the 50 soldiers of the escort. Forty-three soldiers were killed,
nine bodies of passengers were found
near the wreck. Of the remaining 32,
a majority are believed to have been
killed or wounded, and burned with
oil taken from the tank of the locomotive.
Before the attack on the train be
came known the Zapata horde had
routed a small garrison of federals at
Parres. Many women of the camp
fell into their hand and were subjected to indescribable barbarities. The
wife of the chief of tho detachment
was found horribly mutilated.
Captain Rosendounez, in charge of
the escort on the ill-fated train, is
said to have fought heroically. After
he had received three wounds he continued firing until a fourth bullet
pierced his heart. ���
The Zapatistas robbed the dead and
living and looted the express car.
"From the time the train stonped
until after the attack ended." said one
of the soldiers today, "there was r
veritable rain of bullets. At least flve
hundred rifles were fired in the firs'
volley and the car in which we wert
traveling was the target. Most of thr
bullets came through the roof."
"The captain was traveling in thp
first-class .coach, two cars back, and
his child was lying dead before him.
By the time he could get through the
two cars were crowded with screaming women and children. When he
arrived .we were firing from the car
windows. The only targets we had
were straw hats on the embankment
which we found out afterwards were
'eft by the enemy as decoys. Wher
we went outside .we were over
whelmed and unable to use our guns
:n the hand-to-hand fight."

Sweden First, United States Second,
Great Britain Third.
Stockholm, July 22.���The Olympic
games concluded today with the finish
of the yacht races. With the points
gained ln the yachting events Sweden
lends the nations In the number of
points In all events, Sweden's total
being 133.
Great Britain stands third with a
total of 76 points. The United States
leads in firsts, with 25 to Sw&lon's 23.
Anent the lacrosse situation which
lias threatened to split the relations
existing between this city and Vancouver, some interesting sidelights
have been brought to light which tbe
fans of this city might care to ponder
upon. The actions of the press ot
the Terminal City have been admittedly partial to the side of the green
shirts. That much might be expected
in a mild form, but further than this
it ls now stated that plans are afoot
to bring a team from the east to play
three games during the week of the
. New Westminster exhibition. Yes,
;- that vro\\lA hurt the local institution a
great deal���not.
The Vancouver Province quotes Mr.
Jones as stating "I 4m through with
the New Westminster club from now
on." That brings up the question
"How is the Vancouver manager going to pay his galaxy of stars unless
lie plays the remaining games ot the
B. C. schedule ?" A trip back east
certainly would not help much, as the
teams in the Big Four and the N. L.
TJ. are too busy looking after their
interests in the race for the pennant
to even consider games with the Vancouver outfit, and midweek games are
. not very promising from a financial
A few more instances of the workings of the commission also came to
light yesterday. Take for Instance
the time when Dr. Doherty resigned
the cominissionership. The Vancouver
member had charge of two games and
following the one in this city his report to the secretary of the association made out that future fines would
surely be accompanied with suspension. The next game In Vancouver
saw Ion nearly cut Cliff Spring to
pieces, and after the latter had been
fixed up by a surgeon, the medical
man stated that any man who would
do such an act ought to be banished
from the game altogether.
Grumpy Spring nearly got his ear
lopped off by one Griffith, and in hiB
report to the Vancouver commissioner,
Alex Turnbull recommended that Ion-
Griffith and" Jlmasy" GIffdrd be suspended, the forriifer for at least a
month. What was the refult ? All
three players were handed a flne of
$25 each.   .
The following Saturday saw Harrv
Hyland take a wallop at Hess, and at
the same time use a little talk which
��� s not ln Webster's. After much deliberation, Hyland was made the goat
liy being suspended one game.
Tbe Dominion Day game came next.
Both teams were at full strength and
Westminster won on its merits. Secretary Lynch states that tlie Vancouver commissioner, tollowlng the game,
said tbat in Turnbull. the association
bad "oue of the squarest referees ln
the game today."

Trophies Secured.
Bisley Camp, July 22.���Commenting
on the general work of the Canadiar
team, the commandant, Lleut.-Col
O'Grady, of Winnipeg, says a better
team never came to Bisley. The
Canadian Associated Press is desired
by the team to voice their appreciation of the kindness and* considera
tlon of Col. O'Grady and the adjutant
Lleut.-Col. Winter, of Quebec.
Corp. Mortimer is the bigges'
money winner of the team... The Que'
bee man carried off a hundred pound'
odd, but thia was.wan chiefly in thr
match rifle events, where he carried
off the Edge and the Bass and alsr
the Hopton cuns, following this up by-
annexing the King's Norton. With the
service rifle, conspicuous among Canadians were Capt. Forrest, Vancouver, wbo led the Canadians up to tbe
last range In the King's prize; Lieut-
Blackburn, of Wlnntpes:. whose fourth
was the highest Canadian position in
that event; Sergt. Armstrone. of Halifax, who won the Daily Telegraph

German Journal Assails Grest Britain
for Conditions.
Berlin, July 22.���The Berlin "Tage-
blatL" published a leading article Sat
urdav asailing Great Britain for tht
condition in tbe Putumayo rubber dis
trlct of Peru. The newspaper de
mands that the United States Inter
vene as the atrocities committed
against the Ind'an mbber collector'
have created a situation which Is variant to the Monroe Doctrine, under
which the United States can bring
pressure to bear on a 8outh American
republic falling to observe the standards of morality.

Fred. F. Pardee, M.P., Is No Mean
Hand at the Tat.
One sees such gatherings in the
great and growing West. To the
easterner tbey are strange���thrilling, (
but un-understandable. The "uidest J
inhabitant," ; who was on ihe spot,
when the "City" was laid out, just
four and a half years before, explained that the audience was composed
of no less than seven nationalities, a
conglomerate collection from the Old
World and the New. They had turned
out, three thousand strong, to greet
the then Prime Minister of Canada
on his visit to the prairies in the
summer of 1910. But their attention
for thestime being was focussed upon
an earnest young speaker summoned
from the background by his leader1
to bespeak the mission of the tour.
There were men, women and children, of different races of diversified
ideals, of individual aims and aspirations. They had come together���the
large majority of them���out of curiosity. It was a mammoth meeting, taxing the capacity of the typical prairie
rink, but it was impersonal, segregated, chaotic. Then the young man
spoke. He was not an orator, but he
had a message His greeting was direct, personal, sympathetic. And
when he sat down the gathering was
unified and enthusiastic. It was one
and won.
Just behind the press table sat a
hoary-headed stalwart who had glued
his right hand to his ear as a sounding funnel throughout the address.
Everything about him proclaimed the
Fatherland. His accent was pronounced.
"Ach!" he exclaimed, leaning forward wid .placing his big hand on the
arm of' a nearby newspaper man.
"Who it iss?"
He was told.   He nodded his head '
decisively, "Goodt, goodt.'Vhe repeated.    "Dat  young   man   bass   un   future!"
The Young Man with the Future
was Mr. Fred. F. Pardee, K.C, member for West Lambton and chief whip
of tlie Liberal party in tlie House of
Commons. He is 44 year* of age���
and younp for his ;. ears. He has sl!
the vigor .nd enthusiasm of youth,
tempered With tiie wisdom nf an early
and successful Parliamentary career.
He was born for politics, f< r his father was the late Hon. T. B. Pardee,
Minister of Crown Lands in the heyday of the Mowat administration in
Ontario. But Fred, is not the son of
.his father in tbe *en.*e *o frequently
evidenced in public life! Re-stands
on his own feet. He has come to the
front on his own merit. He has made
good on his own account.
Yet the chief whip is no exponent
of the all-work-and-no-play doctrine.
No man is more ready to enjoy to the
fall his hours of relaxation and recreation. Once the task of. the hour
is off his hands he is ready to participate in the lighter things of congenial camaraderie. And he is always ready ior a turn in healthy outdoor sport, and still looks the athlete
he was in his college days. It wa* he.
it may be remembered, who captained
the Parliamentary team that took the
measure of tlie newspaper men in
that memorable baseball contest on
the prairie diamond at Melville during the tour to which reference has
been made. Mr. Pardee marshalled a
phenomenal team, including one Provincial Prime Minister, one member
of the Dominion Cabinet, one ex-
Speaker of the Western Leiris'ature,
nne .Senator and several members of
th? House of Commons. He play-d
first base himself���and played it without a glove r The press still charges
its unexpected defeat to the support

you no harm shall come to Tom."
This assurance took away a great
deal of Mrs. Atwood's anxiety, nnd
she consented to do as Fred bad proposed, provided tbey would keep ber
advised, whereupon Chandler agreed
that her husband should take no step
that she did not know all about. Tbeu
the two men went into conference by

Chandler went to the hotel, where be
asked for Mr. Markham. and wben
that gentlemau was pointed out to him
asked for n few moments' private conversation. Markham led blm apart
from the others, and Chandler said:
"My friend Atwood has received
wbat he considers a challenge from

that he wl'l meet you; but. being tbe
Challenged party, he Insists upon making tbe terms. He proposes that, tomorrow morning at 0 o'clock, you leave

three miles from here. You are to carry one 42 caliber six shooter; be tbe

For many things in cookery, St. Charles Cream
is an essential.    It is as good as the best milk
or cream for any purpose.   For many purposes
it is much better.   It gives to coffee,
for instance, a flavor which even the
best of ordinary cream cannot approach,'and it aids in bringing out
the delicate aroma of chocolate and
cocoa.   For confection and ice cream
it is unexcelled.   For invalids and
infants it is indispensable. It never
curdles.   It strengthens the strong.
If only pure water is added it will agree with
