BCLsCl BUYS LAND
TO ENLARGE SHOPS
Record Cask Deal of Year Went Through Yesterday for
$123,000. Company Now Owns Six Acres at Shops Which
Witt Employ Some Additional 350 Men.
The largest cash deal ln local real
estate circles transacted this year was
closed yesterday morning when lots
39, 40 and 41, In suburban block 5,
situated at tho corner of Twelfth
Btreet and Third avenue and extending to Thirteenth street, containing
about three acres, were bought by the
B, C. Electric Railway company at a
price of 1123,000.
The property, which adjoins the
company's present car barns, which
are situated on lots 30, 31 and 32, will
be utilized for extensive buildings
which will shortly be constructed to
supplement the already overcrowded
machine and repair shops.
The real estate firms acting for the
vendors in the big deal were McQuarrie Bros., Gray & Gilchrist, and Kellington & Hendry. The vendors were
the Small ft Bucklin Lumber company, the owners of lot 39, Dr. R.
Eden Walker for lot 40, and a syndicate composed of Mr. Michael Gowan
 it���
and others for lot 41. Tbe total price
of $123,000 was made up as follows:
Lot 39, $33,000; lot 40, $30,000; lot 41,
$60,000.
Tbe announcement of the completion of the deal came rather as a surprise to several prominent local financial men. About a week ago it was
reported that the company had practically closed with a Burnaby deafer
for a large block of land ln that
municipality. This, however, has 'evidently fallen through, as Mr. It. H.
Sperling has announced tbat tbe central shops for the company wlll be
located here, and that tbe plant which
It is proposed to construct on the new
site will employ about 350 men in addition to the 125 or more who are employed at the present works.
The acquisition of this piece of land
gives the B. C. Electric Railway company possession of a six acre tract
extending from Queens avenue to
Twenty-third avenue, between Twelfth
and Thirteenth streets.

At the meeting of the city council
last evening the finance committee
was instructed to consider the terms
of the application made by Mr. A. O.
Powell to act iu the capacity of harbor engineer to supervise the proposed Improvements upon the waterfront and on Front street.
Mr. Powell, who prepared the plans

this works out to $33,333.33.
Mr. Powell stated that his offer wac
made only on the understanding tbat

longer period than 23 months. In the
case of a Dominion barbor commission

Regina, Sask., July 3.���Today plans
are being made for the rebuilding of
the devastated capital of the province. On Monday morning hundreds
of carpenters, bricklayers and laborers started the work of clearing away
the debris and repairing such structures that can be put In shape with
a little work. On the north side,
where the devastation was unusually
severe, the work of reconstruction is
progressing In an admirable manner.

Tbe local Orange lodges will* be out
!n full strength for the occasion, while
Vancouver will send over about 5,000
epresentatives of the order to take

A most elaborate and varied program has been arranged for the day,
and the ceremonies to be conducted,
in which every man and woman of
'.his vast concourse will take part, promise to be exceedingly striking, One
of the features of the celebration will
be the delivering of speeches by the
representatives of the city, and prominent members of the Orange Order
from all parts of the province.
Probably the greatest demonstration will be the grand parade from the
city to Queen's Park. All the lodges
will form on the library square with
bands and banners at 12:45 sharp. The
procession will leave the square at 1
o'clock and will march along Carnarvon street to Eighth Btreet, from there
down to Columbia street, up Columbia
to Leopold Place, thence to Royal avenue, following Royal to Park Row, and
then to the entrance of Queen's Park.
The lodges will counter march at the
park gate and will then march round
the oval, forming a circle. After various ceremonies have been conducted
the parade will dismiss, and a sporting program will be started, In which

Reported that Tenders for Installation
of Oil Burning Apparatus Have
Been Withdrawn.
The dredge Fruhling haa left for the
Wallace shipbuilding yards, North
Vancouver, to undergo her annual
overhauling. It la expected that the
work will take three weeks for completion. The keel will have to be
scraped, new castings placed In position, while the pipes have become so
worn as to require new linings.
It is understood that the tenders
calling for oil burning apparatus to
be installed on the dredge have been
withdrawn for a time at least.
Just whether this move Is the result
of a protest from the Westminster
board of trade and the Progressive
association remains to be seen, as no
communication has as yet been received from the authorities at Ottawa.

Messrs. Stuart Wade, Otway wiu.im,
of the board of trade; K. Myers, T. D.
Sheriff and W. L. Darling, of the Progressive association, and B. G. Walker,
of tlie Burnaby board of trade, visited
Vancouver Saturday afternoon. These
consultation with Mr. Leonard Palmer,
the manager of the tour, a plan was
outlined whereby the visiting gentle
men will again be in our midst on
Saturday afternoon:
The party will leave for Victoria
this morning for a two day visit and
it is planned to have special cars
waiting the boat on tbeir return to
Vancouver Saturday afternoon which
will carry them to Steveston, where a
special steamer will be chartered to
carry them up the Fraser, past Richmond, to New Westminster and thence
to Port Hammond, where they can
make connection with   the   Imperial |
Limited of the C. P. R. on their   return journey.
This scheme was practically agreed
upon by the manager of the trip, but
he.would not give full consent until
the plans had been presented to the
whole party. To this end Messrs.
Myers and Wade will leave this morning and make the trip to Victoria, and
If their proposals are agreed upon
they will wire arrangements to the
officers of the Progressive association
and also to the board of trade, so that
plans can be made in the city for the
reception of the visitors.
Yesterday two parties visited Westminster, one going up river to Pitt
lake ln company with Captain Fader,
and all who visited the city on Tuesday are vastly Impressed with the
possibilities of the Fraser, city and
harbor.
That a large portion���perhaps   the
greater part of the money stolen from
tbe Bank of Montreal last September-
is cached away beneath some    sidewalk, doorstep or other hiding place
in  this city,  is  the opinion of one
of the Pinkerton detectives who has-
been In the city for the past few days-
gathering additional evidence in the
great robbery case which at the time
startled the entire continent.
The theory advanced in support of
this supposition  is that to date the
one outstanding  feature of the case
goes to prove that the crime was carried out   by   a comparatively   small
gang of men���no more than three at
the most   This Is according   to   the
findings of- the sleuths, and, considering the fact that all the stolen money
recovered has been in small three or
four  thousand  dollar  amounts,  it  is
only reasonable   to believe   that   the
great bulk of the balance was hidden
away somewhere   until   the   robbers
could find time to return and remove
It safely.
Three in Know.
According to the   detectives   it   is
very unlikely  the  money  has    been
taken away and they also believe that
there are but three men who can tell
of that hiding place where the loot
still lies.   Those men are McNamara,
Dean and  Martin  Powell.    Frank C
Dalrymple, another suspect who Is at
the present  time with Powell  under
arrest in Detroit charged with being
implicated in the robbery, may also-
be able to throw light on tbe case.
The accompanying photographs of
Powell and Dalrymple wtere received
yesterday by Mr. J. M. Riley, Plnkerton detective, who has been stopping;
for the past few days at the   Hotel
Russell,   and  are  herein   reproduced
in the hope that eome citizens may be
able to recognize them as belonging
to men who stayed in Westminster or
the districts adjoining previous to the
robbery.
Powell and Davis.
These two men were arrested in
Detroit on June 4, and in their possession was found about $4000 in Bank
of Montreal currency which was afterward identified as a portion of the
missing $257,000. A warrant was sent
by Chief of Police Bradshaw to bold
the men, and tliey are now in the
custody of the Detroit authorities
awaiting extradition.

be the leader of the pair of suspects.,

MINISTER ORDERS
FULL INVESTIGATION
Westminster Welcomes Final Decision
Is Result of Efforts of Public
Bodies.
The flrm stand recently taken by
the board of trade and the Progressive
association ln the matter of the removal of the dredging office to Vancouver from this city has achieved
some result. Word bas been received
from Ottawa that Hon. F. D. Monk.
iiinlster of public worka, has ordered
an investigation to be made into the
charges laid against Mr. Bayfield,
superintendent of dredging for B. C.
At first the minister readily assented to the Inquiry being made, but on
the advice of his subordinates in the
department thlq demand was later resisted.   Now tbe keen desire of   the

about 180 pounds and is five feet nine

In the arrest of these men ther

of the stolen money was found on.

been one of the strongest points made
in the fight which they have waged"
against extradition. Both, however,
were employing thn best legal talent
available, and were known to be get

The fact that Powell and Dalrymple

The connection which the two suspects had with the circus, with which

lta  Commerce   Exceeds   That  of  Any
Other Port In the World.
The harbor of New Vork ls unquestionably one of the finest natural harbors of the continent, perhaps of tbe
world. Till ihe beifiuning of the nineteenth century it was predicted that
Boston or even Newport would become the great port ef "North America.
As late ns 1812 Philadelphia was tbe
superior of N?w Vork ns n financial
and commercial, center. Contrary to
all predictions, however. New Vork hns
left nil other cities far behind in Its
phenomenal growth. Today its commerce exceeds that of nuy other port
in the world. Including its great rivals.
London and Hamburg.
The measure of the commerce of a
port Is the total volume of tounage of
the vessels entering ond clearing. The
total tonnage entered und cleared at
London during l'.nO was In round num
bers 20.230.000 tous; ot Hamburg. 22,-
300,000 tons; at New York city, 25,-
000.000 tons. The corresponding figures for New Vork city for the year
1901 were approximately 10.300.000
tons. Therefore tbe overage incrense
In tonnage during tbe past ten years
was 1,000.000 per nunum.
The value of Imports through New

Devoted Priest Who Went Into the
Peace River Valley When There
Were Very Few Whita Men West
of the Red River, Is to Be Given 3
Great Celebration on His Golden
Anniversary.
Tliere is a settlement in the far
north which is coming into thi public notice very much these days, lie-
cause it is Uie head of navigation on
Lesser Slave Lake, and is destined,
for a time at least, to he a distribution point for the great Peace River
valley. The name of the town is
Grouard. Almost everybody wlio is at
all interested in the north country,
knows of the town; not so many, however, know of the man for whom it
was named.
To go back in the records of time
forty-nine years is no particular font
for the historian. That is what one
might call contemporaneous history.
But to go hack that far in the history
of the far north is to hark clear back
to th? beginning of things recorded,
or nearly so.-,
The name Grour.rd has been identified with the development of the
Peace River valley for tho last forty-
nine years, although the town of tliat
name is hut a few days old. lt is a
name wliich was taken into the north
by a man���a very human, manly man,
but yet a very good man.
Forty-nine years ago, when Kniila
Grouard penetrated the loneliness of
the northern wilderness to carry the
cross to the savage tribesmen, he wa*
a young priest, invested with his holy
orders only a year befoie. He was
youny in experience, but he was
strong in the enthusiasm of his pious
mission, and brave in the faith of the
greatest missionary church in the
world. Tiie perils and hardships of
the north wero far greater than they
are to-day. but where there was an
unbaptized heathen to be taught the
gospel, the obstacles could not ho tuo
great  for  this  zealous  missionary.
At that time, nobody but the agents
of the Hudson Bay Co., an occasional
stray trapper, and one or two representatives of the Government had
ever visited the Slave Lake country.
The Mounted Police had net yet
sprung into existence, and the pale
face was a novelty to the Indians,
and not a very welcome novelty, either. The civilized world looked on the
north as a waste of snow and ico and
worthless jungles. It was considered
of no commercial interest beyond being an open range for fur bearing animals.
Nobody but a man with the courage
of a great cause could have taken upon himself to pioneer that country
with the message of love, and deliberately isolate Immelf ������)��� rrom uven

is about to celebrate the golden an
niversary of his priesthooi. The event
will take place on the '28th and 30th
of June. Tha people of Grouard and
the surrounding country are making
elaborate preparations to mark it with
a fitting celebration for such a significant event in the story of the north
country.
Thin will be the biggest thing that
has happoned in a festive way so far

there may never be anything quite
like it again. For these reasons tlte

Montreal, July 3.���J. Bruce Walker,

been the recipient of a shipment of
human freight taking the form cf an
lS-month-old baby. The tiny infant,
whose name is Roso Steel, was shipped by express, from Liverpool, to Mr.
Walker.
She reached her destination apparently perfectly satisfied with herself
and everything around. Although her
large baby blue eyeB opened wide with
astonishment at tlie officials who carried her into the hall, she quickly
adapted herself to the situation and
crowed her thanks to her numerous attendants. She was packed off, quite
happily to Calgary, where she found
her anxious mother awaiting her.
ALMA  TADEMA.
Famous English   Painter Dies in Germany.
Welsbaden, Germany, July 3.���Sir
Lawrence Alma-Tadema, the famous
English painter, died here last week,
lie had been suffering from ulceration
of the stomach and was undergoing
treatment.
The late Sir L. Alma-Tadema was
born In Priesland in the year 1830, and
in his early years studied under Wap-
pera in the city of Antwerp and the
celebrated Uaron Leys in Brussels. He
settled in London in 1870 and became
a naturalized Biitish subject throe
years later. He was elected an A. It.
A. iu 1876 and R. A. in 1879.
In his particular clas3 of painting in
the highly-finished "genre" work he
was absolutely without a peer, and the
immense archeological knowledge that
he had stored up along with his painting craft enabled him to express the
profundest detail of the antique world
through the medium of modern realism, lie painted equally well in oils
and wnter colors, and his work with
the brush was marked by an extreme
conservatism that was not shaken by
the sodden uprising of the numerous
schools.
His flrst great picture, "The Vintage," was produced in 1S70, and many
of his later efforts have attained
world-wide recognition and are to be
found in the great picture galleries of
London, the Tate and National; while
a few of his works may be also found
ln the Luxembourg gallery In Paris.
On several occasions he exhibited at
the salon in that city, and his work
was appreciated not only ln England
but in practically every civilized country in the world.
His chief paintings were: "The
Sculpture Gallery." "The Silent Greeting," "The Picture Gallery," "The
Roses of Heliogabalus," "The Four
Seasons," "Hadrian in Britain."
"Spring," "Gold Fish A Reading
From Homer," An excellent appreciation of his work was forthcoming in
tho "Art of England," the sensational
work of art published by the. great
orltic. John  Iluakin.   In   1884.

A    CONVICT    SHIP.
Once
"Flying Outch-
^^^     Mistaken for the
man."
London, July 8.���In al) the world It
would bo difficult to find a craft with
a more interesting history than the
old teak-built barquentine "Success."
which refcently sailed across to the
United States, and Is to be used as a
show ship. The "Success," says the
Railway and Travel Monthly, was
launched at Moulmeln, in the East,
considerably over a century ago, and
after trading around the world in various employments for a number of
years, was ultimately converted Into a
convict ship for the transportation
from England to Australia of felons.
That was in the bad old Botany Bay
days, and after her convict-carrying
employment ceased she remained at
an Australian port.
Ftor years she lay idle In the mud,
and then the idea occurred to a couple of Australians' that there was
money to be made out of the old packet by employing her as a show ship.
In 1895, says the writer, I was ln Port

Mrs. Kwlicott declined to budge. The'
authorities yielded and provided her
with a bomb-proof structure, iu which
she and her two children can take refuge w hen. the guns are baing fired In
her directlou. It is constructed of
rocks and plaster and lined with sheet

street, London, now has for exhibition
purposes a wonderful emerald, which,
like the far-famed Kohi-i-l&oor diamond, formed part of the treasure
which Nadir Shah carried from Delhi
to Persia.
The emerald weighs 78 carats, and
Is of flne deep sea color.   It is in the

"Success" was getting ready for her
voyage to England. I don't know exactly undei what terms her Crew were
engaged, but among sallormen ln the
port $500 was freely spoken of ea the
proper pay for the run homt *.o London. Finally the "SuccesB got a crew
and put to sen, and some five and a

the Thames. Nothing of moment

long-drawn-out passage, except that���
so the storv goes���the captain of a
vessel which passed the ugly, dilapidated-looking "Success" off the Cape
of Good Hope was quite convinced he
had sighted the "Flying Dutchman."
Since her ai rival In England In 18A5
the "Success" has paid visits to a good
number of ports in the United Kingdom, and '1 is stated that at times she
has taken as much as $4,000 a week In
���mall sums from sightseers. Now
that she has been purchased by an
American showman she will continue
her career as an exhibition ship ln
American porta. Very thorough was
the everlmiil she underwent prior to
leaving England. The last port of exhibition of the vessel was Douglas, Isle
of Alan. "Leaving that port, she was
towed to Glasson dock. At Glasson
dock the "Success" was completely
rigged as a barquentine, and, notably
enough, this antiquated apple-bowed

"He who possesses this charm shall
enjoy the special protection of God."
Of all the flne jewels iu India, lt Is
said that the finest collection is that
belonging to the Gaekwar of Baroda.
He owns the beautiful diamond the
"Star of the South." This Is used as a
pendant on a diamond necklace made
up of three rows of diamonds, each
stone weighing frcm 30 to 40 carats.
The whole necklace Is worth 250,000.
He has also a necklace made up of
five rows of pearls, which as to size
and color are absolutely matchless.
Tlie flnest collection ol pearls, according to M. Jacques Cartler, who
has made a special study of Oriental
Jewels, ls that of the Maharajah of
Dhorpur. He has a necklace reaching
almost to the knees, consisting of flve
ropes of pearls caught together at intervals with single pearls of enormous
size.
After ipearls, emeralds are the favorite stone in India, and the Maharajah
of Fatiala has some of the flnest. One
of his pieces ls a turban ornament in
the form of a large feather, at least 10
inches long, made of diamonds. About
the edge of this ls a fringe of large
pear-shaped emeralds, each of which Is
almost priceless.

London, July 3.���The new London
museum has shown Its enterprise by
adding a hansom cab to IU collection,
although there are at least 400 of
these vehicles still ln use on the London streets. But the last maker of
hansoms closed his doors three years

that there are at least 11,000 taxicabs

Old Documents.
Some curious old documents offered

occupy the lakes in the London parks
were in occupancy there in the reign
of James I. One document ts Lord
Rochester's bill of charges "for keeping the fowls and beasts at the St

John Hampden, who, according to Macaulay, would have been the George
Washington of his country if he had

SWITCHING TRADE
OVER THE BORDER
HAIL AND FAREWELL.
While the visit of the influential
body cf manufacturers from the British Isles cannot but be of vast importance both to Canada and the Homeland, it must lie said that it is greatly
to be regretted that these gentlemen
had not a little more time in which to
prosecute their enquiries Into the advantages which have been propounded
���to them at regular intervals along the
three thousand-mile swath of their
hurried itinerary.
Thc point of view of the dweller iu
this country cannot  be  gauged accurately in a fleeting conversation, wliile
from the number of hearty invitations,
greetings, tomes of information, banquets and so forth wllich have   been
thrust upon the heads of these dogged
pioneers of industry, it cannot but be
that, amid the pleasant recollections
which they will carry away from these
shores, there will be some sighs of relief that at last they have a chance to
really sort out and classify  some  of
the extensive lore that they have garnered.
In  England  the "hustling  Yankee"
who "does" Loudon ip a day, and imbibes the spirit of Shakespeare during
a two-hour sojourn in his native town,
is looked upon as an impossible creature.   Perhaps one should write "was
looked upon," for verily it seems that
the rush of the new world has invaded
the old, and in a laudable desire to see
"everything, the party conducted by the

The'lnterest awakened by the latter

Government was further strengthened
by the suggestive lectures delivered
by Mr. Ritch during the early months
of the present year at meetings attended by him in the Maritime provinces and later at meetings attended

and British Columbia.    "The Government is doing something," was the appreciative   comment   of   a   Western
sheep man, after the conclusion of one
of the lecent lectures, and this state- j
ment is expressive of the temper  of
sijeep growers, both in the East and
in the West, who are gratified to know |
in their interests something def-1
e if now being undertaken.
An announcement has already been
made regarding the action of the minister in making provision for a special
sale, during the months of September
and October next, of pure-bred rams
and grade ewes in the Maritime provinces and in British Columbia.   It has
been ascertained that these provinces

but also of female stock to serve  as

Jackman road, which runs from   then ecT-Gfrfcraticn  of the Dominion  Sheep
boundary line at Sumas to the municipalities of I.angley and Matsqui, is
responsible for driving the trade - of
the Canadian farmers for several
miles north of the 49th parallel into
American territory, is one of the
strong arguments advanced by a deputation of Langley farmers which wait-
id on Mr. W. .1. Kerr, president of the
Canadian Highway association, yesterday afLernoon, asking him to use hie
Influence to have this road put in
traversable condition.
No work has been done on the Jack-
man road for a considerable time, and
it is only with the greatest difficulty,
and at a risk of damaging machines
Ihat automobiles are able to travel at
a slow pace over this thoroughfare. In
wet weather the road is impassable
for rigs and automobiles, and the
farmers declare tliat this winter no
traffic will be possible unless something is done.
Early this year it was promised, presumably with the authority of the
member for the municipality of Delta.
Mr. F. J. MacKenzie, that this road
would be put in fair shape this year,
Breeders' Association has been secur
ed to asist in this work and a grant of
$15,000 has been made direct to the
association, to be expended for this
p^fpose, in accordance with certain
conditions imposed by the minister.
The responsibility for the expenditure
cf this grant has been delegated to a
special committee of the association,
in conjunction with the secretary, Mr.
A\K Westervelt, and the members of
this'committee, acting in association
with officers of the Live Stock Branch,
are at piesent engaged in selecting
the most suitable centres for the holding of the proposed sales. They are
also personally interviewing the farmers of these districts, with the view of
securing their interest and co-operation in connection with the sale of the
sheep. Subsequent to the distribution
of selected breeding stock in different
localities, it is proposed that the appointment of one or more experienced
sheep men shall be arranged for who
shall spend their time in visiting the
farms of those to whom the sheep are
sold, in order thaf the latter may have
the   benefit   of competent  advice re
but today no improvements have, garding the management of their

THE   SONG   OF  THE   WEEK.
A section of the Vancouver press
may be somewhat tardy in noting the
beginnings cf harbor development in
Westminster. Not so, however, the
Victoria Week, or rather that paper,
confines itself to this locality in its
comments.
In the island city there dwells a Mr.
M. Carlin, who is associated with the
Ijondon syndicate which owns Annacis
Island. According to this discerning
publication the "burden cf the song"
of the cities of the coast is of more
harbors and docks. It leaves the matter
there with no hint that the song of
one city, like the "Marseillaise" has
achieved some thing, but goes on to
point out that Annacis Island comprises 1000 acres. A four-mile water
basin is to be dredged along the channel which at present divides Lulu Island from Annacis Island, and along
the north side a row of piers will be
built, while on the south side will be
a solid sea wall. The cost of the
scheme will run into at least $5,000,-
.000 and the work is to be completed
���-within three years from date. The
money has beeu under-written from
l^ondon hu thut there i.s no doubt of
success. Tiiis i.i easily one of the
most important enterprises which has
\iicc started in British Columbia, and
its assured success is due not a little
to the energy and personal influence
pt Mr. Carlin and his associates."
Is Westminster spending half a million forthwith upon harbor Improvement?
at the boundary line, but there is a ] the sheep and wool industries. The
shrewd suspicion on the part of many final disbanding of the commission
that the officials are unable to collect hits made it necessary that definite
the import duty on all the articles provision be made for the effective ad-
\ bought at linden, and that the rutted (ministration of the policy to which the

THE   SHEEP   INDUSTRY.
A New Appointment in the Live Stock
Branch.
Two vears ago the prospect of any;
lexicographers from Webster upwards   extension of sheep raising In Canada
appeared very remote.   Evcept in the
ease of breeders of pure-bred flocks,
���or backwards! A passing perusal of
the British Columbia press is indeed
replete with food for thought as to
whether the reformed���or deformed���
.ystem of spelling is creeping into our
diction.
More than this, the invention of new
words to denote professions which
have within recent years come forth
out of nothingness, is worthy of
Thomas Hardy's "fearsome and wonderful" verdict upon the newspapers
of the American continent. |
OJancing at a recent Issue of a paper published not a hundred miles
away from Victoria, one comes upon
th* phrase "Woman Aviatrice," and a
the prevailing attitude legarding the
possibilities to he attained through a
development of the industry was
largely one of indifference and unconcern. Today, however, a very groat
change In point of view is manifested.
particularly on the part of farmers interested only In the breeding and rearing of market sheep. This change haB
doubtless been brought ahout on the
ohm hand by the increasing domestic
consumption of mutton and lamb. On
the other hand, however, it has with
equal certainty been hastened and confirmed as a result of the investigations
or tho Sheep Commission of the problems confronting the sheep farmer In
this country and   of the   manner in
shire, a co-operative scheme for the
sale of their wool clip, and, in addition, haa undertaken considerable extension work which has given him
���very valuable experience. He is now
recognized in Canada and in the United. States aB a specialist in sheep husbandry and has won for his work the
attention of some of the most eminent
experts in breeding and experimentation.
Mr. Arkell is to join the stafT of the
Live Stock Rranch beforo the middle
of the current month and will proceed
immediately to the provinces of Saskatchewan find Alberta to adv'se with
the wool growers regarding the hand
ling of their present season's cli;) a""*

Vancouver Takes  Up  Reeve Weart's
Challenge���Famous Salmon Bellies
to Play Ball.
Edmonds, July 3.���The challenge
issued by Reeve "Weart against the
���councils of Vancouver and New Westminster has been answered and the
afternoon of July 16 will see a memorial baseball contest between the two
cities on the lower mainland and the
municipalities of Burnaby, South Vancouver and Point Grey.
Alderman Cameron, of the Vancouver city council, mentioned the proposed contest to his associates on
Tuesday evening and ail appear to
have entered into the spirit of the
scheme. They will flnd ready and able
assistance in the services of Acting
Mayor Gray and Alderman Lynch, of
New Westminster, whose work on the
famous Salmon Belly lacrosse team
will come in useful.
Just who will represent the municipalities has yet to be given out, and
it is probable that the real line-up
will be kept in the dark until the umpire, Mayor McNeish, of North Vancouver, yells "play ball." Reeve Weart
is one of the kind who keeps everything under his hat until the right
moment and indications lead one to
believe he will follow out his usual
custom in the matter of baseball.
Gambling on the game is to be
tabooed, and Chief Parkinson, of the
Burnaby police force, will be on deck
ready to pinch any fan or player who
attempts to indulge in this sporting
art.

Nursing Injuries. '***.
It seems very probable that Saturday's game ' between the Vancouvers
and the Salmon Bellies will be postponed to a later date. Manager Gray
was unable to get anything definite
from Mr. Con Jones last evening, but
it is understood that both managers
are unwilling to fleld their teams
again until the next championship
game on July 13.
The boys are all in after the gruelling contest of Monday and a two
weeks' rest will be beneficial to ail.
"Mose" Howard, Len Turnbull and

This is called for 5 o'clock and all

A Case Where Interference
Was Not Wise

o*-��-<
"Ouce more I warn you, Deering.
It's no joke to meddle in these Asiatic
Bquabbles." Fleetman looked anxiously at bis young friend. "Take my advice. Fou know tbat I've lived here
twenty years, and I'm speaking from
experience."
"I promised Lung I'd help him out,"
declared the other obstinately.
"Of course it's uone of my business,
but as long as you've told me something about it I can hazard a guess
that you've got to put up some money."
"I can afford lt It's sport to me to
dip into these things."
"That may be true. N'o doubt lt
looks like a sporting proposition to
you, Paul, but remember tbis much,
my lad. If yon are .successful you will
be the only one to reap reward whether in enjoyment ot the sport and adventure or financially, On tbe otlier
band, if you full and full into tbeir
hands���yon wlll most certainly expect
that your country will protect ber eltl-
sens���you embroil tbe United States
in your persons! matters."
"No, I'll uot." retorted Pnul quickly.
"I'll do tills trick ns n niiiu without a
country.    If I fail, nil rlght-o."..
"Pigheaded obstinacy!" gronned
Fleetmnu. "I feel like a criminal in
helping you thus far on your way.
Paul. Take m.v advice uud do not step
on Ihe dragon's tail."
Paul Deering laughed uneasily. "The
dragon's tail is a .good distance from
his jaws, old mnu. There'll be time
enough to run nwny before I'm snapped up."
"The dragon's tail ls as powerful ns
his head, nnd It will toss you into tbe
dragon's jaws. This ia tbe last word.
Paul.   Will you give it up?"
"I'm sorry lo say thnt I've gone too
/ar���I enn't be n piker!"
"Better be a Jive piker than n dead
fool!" growled Fleetman rudely.
A red Bust) stained Deering's skiu,
but be snid nothing. He bad confided
in Fleetman, nnd he wns not Sorry for
it, although lie might regret having en
tered into the negotiation at nil. Paul
was practically a newcomer In China.

It was nobody's business.
Paul bad fold Fleetman flint be uns
to receive valuable concessions In  return   for the favor.     Tbe  mandarin
Lung. f)(is>t--.sed much land In Ms own
province that iv.-is rich In copper nre.
and It wtv* this land that be was conceding to the rl.-h young Amerienn in
return for his hel|>.    I.ung had been n
revolutionist,   but   had   betrayed   his
cause to the Imperialist party.   There
was n  price upon his sleek  hend.  for
the rebels wnnied to punish him  for
his treachery.
: From Paul's point of view, and lie
had only heard smatterings of the
truth mixed with much falsehood from
Lung's own lips, the mandarin had
been badly used by both parties. I.ung
wanted to leave the country, bnt he
could only do so In u disguise of some
sort, and he could not rely upon nny
of his own people to help liim out. for
be hnd been a  bard master wben  In
some cutnshas -(gifts! for your father 1
and mother.    If you do get Into any I
difficulty remember you can call upon
me to tbe limit to help you out."
"Thauk you, Fleetman. That remark
makes me sorry 1 entered into the confounded busiuess. I don't want to Involve you in anything." Paul spoke
witb real regret
"Xever mind. As long as you've entered into It go slow, and if you do
come a cropper I'll do whnt 1 can."
The next day was a busy one for
Paul Deering. lie had already purchased tickets for himself nnd servant, Van Slug, nnd completed tbe necessary formalities to get a native out
of the country. If he could manage
tbe rest of it with as much dispatch
there was no doubt that tbe mandarin.
Lung, would disappear from his native
heath forever without leaving a clew
to tbe manner of his departure.
But Paul Deering reckoned without his host In other words, be bad
stepped on tbe dragon's tail, and tbe
jaws of tbe monster were not far away
���even as Fleetwood had prophesied.
The. day drew to a stormy close. It
rained heavily, and darkness set In early. All this boded good tbe furtherance of Paul's scheme, although Lung
might have a bard time of lt rocking
down tbe Yangtze In his frail sampan.
Paul waited at Punderson's jetty for
Lung's arrival. Tbe slanting rain beat
heavily ou his rubber clothing, and aj
raw trind came out of tbe east and.
tiled to discourage his waiting.
At last a small shadow took shape
out of the dull grayness of tbe river, j
grew larger as lt neared tho Jetty,
something bumped softly against the
steps. In a few minutes a tall, slight
form loomed out of tbe gloom of the
flight of steps, and the mandarin. Lung,
stood before bis deliverer. From a
lamppost near by a stream of light fell
on Lung's figure and displayed a disguise that was admirable, for the mandarin had so changed bis appearance
with various chalks nnd chemicals that
few would bave recognized In the melancholy, cadaverous checked Chinaman, garbed in a straw rain suit, the
once fnt and prosperous mandarin.
Lung.
Paul hurried him to the tug which
was pufling to and fro between tne
Java and tbe wbnrf In Shanghai, and
they were soon speeding down the fiver
to where tbe Java lay iu tbe montli of
the stream.
Their arrival at night wns timely.
Paul took to his bed ns a seasick pus-
senger. and his valet was in close attendance upon him for days.
As they neared the coast of America
Paul recovered rapidly, nnd as he was
actually  sickening  for  fresli  nir and
exercise   he   spent   the   remainder  of
the voyage on deck, while Lung kept

New Brunswick Has Launched on 0
S'.riking Campaign.
New ftrutiswiek has ilic'.ded to keep
young farmers in the east and to encourage immigrants of an agricultural
turn to settle on lands as yet unfarni-
ed in that province, says Harold
P.rown in The Canadian Courier.
Spending 113,000,000 to make a national harbor of Courtenay Bay does not
epitomize the progressive policy of
modern New Brunswick. There, as in
all other fertile areas of Canada, the
iand is the thing. New Brunswick is
still a province of large unclaimed
areas of arable land. While the mad
rush for free land is still on in the
vaJleys of the Saskatchewan; while
the trek to the free lands of tlie Peace
River is going ahead of the railroads;
while large areas of good land are being settled upon in British Columbia;
and while Ontario is still pushing
back the unsettled boundaries of its
huge clay belt ��� the Maritime Provinces are beginning to realize that it
is better economics for the east and
better for tiie immigrant, to settle
land which has lain idle along the
Atlantic since the Micmacs first hunted the moose in Nova Scotia.
New Brunswick's forward policy on
the land question  began in a vigorous protest against the continual exodus  of thousands of her best young
agriculturists to the west; and against
the almost more serious efflux of pro-
I ductive   population    to   the   eastern
I States.      Newspapers  and  Boards  of
J Trade, merchants and manufacturers
I and people in" general made ihe pro-
I test something of an organized howl.
The howl becnnie an intention.    The
J intention tock form in legislation.  The
��� bill   to  encourage   the   Settlement  of
Farm Lands was the result.
Precedent to the bill, however, and
1 thc direct cause of it, was a somewhat
1 remarkable paper read at the recent
Immigration Conference in Frederic-
i ton.   by   Charles   H.   Mclntyre.    Mr.
| Mclntyre  was born on a stone-knob
I farm  in New Brunswick.    While still
i a youth he managed to get an educa-
. tion   as   fur   as  graduating  trim   tlie
! University    of    New    Brunswr-:;    at
j Fr. fieri, ton; after which he stun.ed at
Harvard, took a course in American
law and set up a legal office in Boston,
wheie hi is now a prominent citizen, a
past   president  of  the   Boston   Canadian Club, and as much interested in
his native province ns though he were
.-ti'I livin? in Frederictbn,
"Speaking generally," he said, "the
average y< u:ig man without funds
cannot purchase a farm and from its
proceeds redeem himself from debt before he is  worn out."
Mr. Mclntyre cit-.'d the examples of
several other countries in dealing with
tbe  mauleys land question:  Kngland,
Germany,  Ireland,  Brazil,  Australia,
New Zealand.   The basic principle in
all  the-e  somewhat  varying methods
if petti tic idle i-eople on to idle land,
and   of   building  homes  for  working-

A Schoolroom Experiment and Its Ef- |
facts Upon ths Children.
To ascertain the effect of electricity
upon the development of scliool children a series of Interesting experiments
has just been concluded In tbe schools
of Stockholm. The walls and ceilings
of a schoolroom were lined with n coll
of wires through wbich a high frequency current was passed. The children In tbe room were thus iu the position of an iron core in tbe center of a
magnetizing coil. Fifty children were
kept In tbls room, while fifty others of
the same overage nge, size aud mental
development were kept in nn adjoining
room without electrical treatment.
At tbe end of six months the children
under electrical treatment showed an I ������
average growth of two Inches, while I. 0
those without electricity grew only one
nnd one-fourth Inches. The electrified
children showed au increase in weight
and other forms of development In proportion to tbeir height The electrified children also showed an average
proficiency ln their studies .of 02 per
cent, and flfteen of them showed 100
per cent. The nnelectrlfled children,
on tbe other hand, were only 75 per
cent proficient on the average, and not
oue of tbem reached 100 per cent.
It Is added that tbe electrified children appeared to be mucb brighter,
quicker aud more active. Tbey were
prompter in attendance and much less
subject to fatigue. The teachers also
showed superior working capacity ln
the electrified room. While ther? wsa

: power.
Tbe upshot of (be matter was that
the   Impulsive  young   American   bad
��� promised that Lung should accompany
I hlm back to the L'ulted States under
J: pill?? of his personal servant    Paul
;' nad taken puSSiigfj n'n u steamer which
would sail two days Inter, and he had
. confided  the plan to  Fleetman  under
. promise  of  strictest  secrecy.    Some
one hnd to know In case nny I hing did
hnpen to Pnul. nnd Fleetman seemed
id think that the chances were good
for something to happen to somebody
ln tbe matter.
"It's such a futile undertaking." he
ended his protestutions. "If It wus go
lug to benefit nnybody to bnve Ihnt
rascal got out of his own country I'd
help you out uu lt or at least applaud
your courage. Bnt, by Jove, if uny
man ever deserved a good banging it Is
thnt same Lung."
"I'm sorry, but I've promised." snld
Paul firmly, nnd so the subject was
dropped for the time.
They sped up the Vungtze for a few
miles nnd then turned dowu Its BWlft-
ly flowing yellow stream and made
for the mouth. There tbey could crosR
to the Huangpu and run up that little
tidal river to Shanghai.
Little wns said between the two men
ns the launch Rcudded buck to Sbnng-
Ihai. but when they reached the Jetty
und Fleetman turned the craft over to
the cure of his Chinese boatman he referred once more to the matter.
"When nre you going aboard the
Java?"
"At dusk tomorrow," was Paul's reply.
"When dons yonr mnn join you?"
"An  soon  nfter sunset as  possible.
I've already furnished  hlm  with  the
necessary clothing for disguising himself.   He's been hiding In n half ruined
temple up there and is starved almost
lo a skeleton.   That in Itself is a disguise, for hc wns a pretty sleek looking old customer hefore they got after
bim so I've been told."
"I'll see vou tomorrow.  Paul.    I've
likeal htm.
Ue hoped thnt Lung's escape would
not be discovered until after the Java
docked. It would give tlie fellow a
chance. He hardly thought It likely
they would discover the escape of the
mandarin from China, although they
might suspect it later. Lung had been
in biding for months, nnd bis appearance had greatly changed. Unless his
: enemies had held him under surveillance, even ln bis biding place, knowing that they could pounce upon bim
any time they wunted hiui. be would
not be missed from tbe country for a
long wliile���not until thnt country had
been thoroughly combed.
The Java steamed through the Golden Gate before dawn and warped into-
her dock In a pule gray light Thero
were n few people gathered tbere ou
the wharf, but to the busy passengers,
on the great steamer they were a blur
of unfamiliar faces and forms The
Java was several hours ahead of the
expected tlu.e of ber arrival.
"You ure a stranger here. Cun I du
anything to help you?" asked Paul of
hid valet as they parted In tbe state
room.
Lung shook bis bead. He was very
nervous, and his black, bendy eyes
darted suspiciously here and there lis
;f seeking out hidden enemies. "I
know where I go��� a cousin meets nie."
he said. In the laborious English that
he hnd acquired from u missionary.
He expressed his thanks lo Ills deliverer und said that be would have
the copper lauds transferred lo him.
Then be melted uway from Paul's sl.lo
with a flat soft felt bat pulled down
over b|s face und bis worldly goods
tied In n big bundle In bis bund, lu
the other hand bis passport was tigbt-
ly clutched.
Paul  saw bim again once,  but  he
uever forgot the scene.   Just ns Paul
was   leaving   the  gangplank   he  HtlW
Lung's spare form abend of Mm on
:be wharf.    The mandarin was hesi-
ating. perhaps looking for the count a
wbo would meel bim there In (be new
country.   As Pnul looked nud as Lung
hesitated  (here  was  a   rush  of  blue
bloused Chinamen from behind n pile
jf casks ou the dock.   There came u
scream of awful fear from Lung ns
(bey closed about bim.
An Instant Infer the blue clad Cblnn-
men melted uway befoie (he coming
of a policeman and several stevedores.
They disappeared like rats In some invisible holes. Imt they left something
behind on the dock.
Paul drew near and shuddered. Ths
disguised mandarin, Lung, lay dead
from a dozen knife thrusts. Ills'escape
'rom China had heen lu vain.
They had stepped on the dragon's
all in Asia, nnd Its Jaws bid snapped
:i Its victim lu faraway America.
"Ttie"first-mentioned was the case of
the fund in Government savings
banks on provincial credit as advance
loans to fanner.-*. The second was provincial debentures. The third was
bonds issued by tlie Land Settlement
Commission itself, under provincial

Ths bill f.-f the Npw Brunswick Legislature, born of this idea set forth by

fact. It provides for the creation of

File (he Documents.
Sir Joseph Pope and Mr. J. S.
Ewart are again eating up newspaper
space at a terrific rate in the discussion r>f "The Canadian Flag." It is
about the 'steenth time these valiant
wielders of the pen have fought out
the question, and the probability is
that before 1920 they will have threshed it over many times.
In ordr to save the valuable moments of these eminent gentlemen, we
.suggest that the present correspondence he filed away in the Dominion
Archives. Then, whenever occasion
warrants, Mr. Kwart can call attention in the press to "Exhibit I���E,

the Great Commercial Thoroughfare of Greater New Westminster
Westminster Harbor Sites is situated right on Annacis Avenue.
Half a Million Dollars

JUNE.
Me thought that winter, love, would
never end,
That the dark  year had  slain  the
innocent May.
Nor hoped that your soft hand, this
summer day
Would lie, as now, in mine, beloved
friend;
And, like some magic   spring, your
dream-deep eyes
Hold all the summer skies.
But lo! the world again  is mad with
flowers,
The long white silence spoke, small
bird by bird,
Blade after blade, amid tbe song  of
s'.iowerd,
The grass stole back once more, and
there was heard
The  ancient   music   of   the   vernal
spheres,
Half laughter and half tears,
Ah! love, and   now too  swiftly, like
some groom, j
Raining bot kisses  on  his   bride's (
young mouth,
The mad young year, delirious with
the South,
Squanders his fairy treasure, bloom on
bloom;
Too Boon the wild  rose hastens to
be sweet,
Too swift, O June, thy feet!
Tarry a little, summer, crowd not so
All glory and gladness ln so brief a
day, * '
Teach all thy dancing flowers to step
more slow,
And bid thy wild musicians softlier.
play,
O hast thou thought, that like a madman spends,
The longest summer ends.

Land of Ophir.
Berlin, July 3.���"Ophir," the land of
gold and precious stones of Queen
Sheba, of King Solomon's time is believed to have been discovered by Dr.
Leo Fi'obenlus, the German explorer
and scholar, who bas returned to Ber-
'in from a two yeara' exploration trip
In West Africa. "Ophir," according to
Dr. Frobenlus, ia or rather, was, not
located in Rhodesia, in South Africa,
where explorers heretofore have placed it, but in West Africa at the lower
��dge of the Sahara Desert and in the
*;f;inity of the Niger river. As proof
of his belief that he has discovered
the land from which King Solomon
obtained the vast amount of gold and
jewelB for his palaces, for himself and
his three hundred wives, the German
explorer brought three hundred boxes
filled with ceramics, bronzed articles
of gold and silver, all of which he dug
from the ruins of cities whose history
is lost In the maze of time.
IL. J. Tweedie, Hon, W. Pugsley, and
Hon. C. W. Robinson.
All  the   original   members   of   the
��'T^^ a��'ernment are dead or ont of
politics, but tbe six iimom^m administrations   were made   up   from   the
same party in the legislative assembly.
Hon C. H. LaBUloia, who joined   the
government in 1891, and had been In
House of Assembly since   1882,   had
given longer  service than any other
members of the Robinson Cabinet
Although the present government
haa been only four years in office, the
present leader ls its second premier.
All precedent, lt will be seen, ls
against the defeat of a provincial government early in life.
Duration of Governmenta.
It is a somewhat remarkable fact,
says the St John Globe, that all provincial Governments in New Brunswick
have lived long. Never has a government been turned out at the end of lta
flrst, Becond, or third term of office.
After confederation had been accomplished, Hon. A. R. Wetmore became
Premier of New Brunswick, and he
was succeeded by Hon. George B.
King, Hon. J. J. Fraaer, and Hon. D.
L. Hanlngton.
There were continual changes in the
cabinet, df course, but to all lntenta
and purposes tho Administration in
the sixteen years from 1867 to 1883
was in the same party hands. Hon. A.
G. Blair came ln in 1883, and he waa
succeeded as premier by Hon. Jamas
Mitchell, Hon. H. R. Emmerson, Han.
ORIENTAL   RUBY  COSTS
MORE  THAN   DIAMOND
Toronto, July 3.���"Most people are
of the impression that the diamond is
more valuable than any other jewel
stone, but weight for weight the Oriental ruby costs many times what the
tinest diamond of the Kimberley fleld
will bring," said Henri La Valle of
Chicago, who has lately returned from
a trip to the East Indies. "For instances an eleven carat ruby sold in
London a few yeara ago for $36,000.
An eleven carat diamond in the market would not bring anything like this
sum. Tbe smaller size diamonds and
"pigeon blood" rubies ai-j not so wide
apart in price, but real rubles are
steadily in tha lead tn a'l gem markets.
"Last fall I passed through the
small district ln Upper Burma around
Mogok seventy miles no-'n of Manda-
lay, from which nearly all the rubies
of the world come. The nitre ruby is
corunv'.um chemically oxide of aluminum. The aluminum silicate is the
basis of all clays and the sulphate ia
familiar as alum. The Mogok district
was for three centuries owned by the
Burmese kings, and in those days, I
learned that the possession cf n ruby
by a private individual, if it were
worth more than $350, wa3 regarded
as a crime.
"Those of a larger value were mafte
part of the Crown'a property except in
those cases where the individual had
sufficient cupidity to break them up
ahd sell them as several separate jewels.
"Some years ago a British syndicate
got & lease on the Mogok property for
a period extending to 1932, and began
bringing out rubies over a cart road
60 miles to the Irrawaddy river. The
process of taking out the brilliant red
stones ls unique. A pit is sunk ten
feat square and twenty-dve feet deep
and a centrifugal pump la placed tn It
The ground all aronncl Is then gradually loaded into trucks and hauled
away to a washer, any water encountered being let into the pit from
which the pump removes it.
"The process continues until the
level of the mine reaches the bottom
ot the pumping pit or the quantity ot
water exceeds the capacity ot the
pump, ln which case It becomes necessary to sink the pit further and Increase the pumping power. Chinese

bitched to an endless rope, drawn up a die the larger sizes and the English'
slope and tipped into screens, through | sorters conduct the next operation of
which after being well shaken and dls-. working the stuff round and round in
integrated It passes into washing pans (a sieve Immersed in a tub of water till
14  feet in diameter.
"Rows of steel teetb set ia revolving arms churn up the clayey mass,
the clay and lighter gravel run into a
safety pan and tbe heavier gravel, containing the precious stones, is left behind, about 1 per cent of the original
contents of the washer.
At the end of each ahlft a door in
the pan bottom ia opened and tbe deposit falls into trucka with covera
which are ready to treat the loads.
The sorters tip the deposit Into large
bins, also locked, trom which it slowly dribbles Into a revolving screen covered with various sizes of meshing.
Tbe sand is elminlnated at once and
the clean deposit falls through in live
sizes, the largest directly to a sorting
table, the four others to a pulsator
which separates the heavier from the
lighter stuff.
"Because of the strong temptation
the rubies have gravitated to the bottom. Tbe sieve is then smartly turned upside down on a table ao that the
rubles are at the top and can be picked out by hand.
"The rainfall in the Mogok region is
terrific. Twenty-five inches have been
registered ln four-daya there. With
great open pita to be kept frte from
the results of such deluges, the engineers often flnd themselves in great
difficulties, so tbey have decided to
drive a drainage tunnel through the
hill on one side of the valley, which
will not. only curb the river flowing
through, bnt also empty the water
from the mines by gravity. The tunnel will be more than a mile long.
"When the rich deposits have been
taken from the valleys it ls planned
to equip the hillsides with hydraulic
apparatus, as do the gold miners of
California and Alaska."
