Edmonds, July 15.���The march of
progress haa not left Burnaby untouched and a scheme is now on foot
ito 'construct a wharf and rock bunkers 'ou a site belonging to the municipality along the North Arm. This
project came up before the Board of
AVorks this evening, and many expressions were made by the councillors that the time had now come
whon Burnaby must look elsewhere
tor Its rock supply.
Mr. W. E. Sinclair who has the
Steveston Jetty contract, ls in a position to supply the municipality with
rock up to a million yards, and a
���contract has been drawn up with
him for a limited Hupply. This will

quarries, unloaded from the scows to
the bunkers where It will be crashed
by the plant to be erected, and from
there transported from different
points In Burnaby by the work trains
of the B. C. E. R.
Inspect  Similar  Plant.
The bunker site is bo situated as
to allow a spur track to be constructed from the Eburne line, and arrangements will be made with the B. C. E.
R. so that the work trains will be in
operation after the rush hour of passenger traffic. Councillor McDonald
And Construction Engineer Thompson
were appointed a committee to inspect a plant In Seattle similar to
that Burnaby proposes to build and
report at the next meeting.
Another matter in connection with
the B. C. E. R. was an application
made by Cliff &. Sons, of Bast Burnaby, owners of the Canadian Can company, for permission to lay    a    spur
Government   Department   Withdraws
Former Objections on Favorable
Report of Engineer.
According to a letter received yesterday by Acting Mayor Gray the objections of the provincial government
towards the proposed disposition of
the' Sapperton sewerage system have
been withdrawn. This now makes the
ultimate consent of the board or
health merely a matter of form.
The attitude taken at the time of
the completion of the plans of the
system by the provincial board of
health was in accordance with the
provisions cf the act, which states
that no crude sewerage shall be discharged Into a river above the point
of a city's water supply.
The department sent an engineer
over to investigate the conditions in
relation to the scheme at the request
of a deputation Trom the city council
who first went to Victoria, and it was
the favorable report of this engineer
.that finally placed tlie question at
rest.

The hopes cf the originators of the
United Service club were completelj
realised last night, and with a grand
muster of a hundred men and a rattl
ing good old patriotic concert, the
new club room in the Hardman blocli
was formally opened.
The evening's events will long re

present who included not only the
grizzled veterans cf land and sea who
are now members of the National Reserve and of the club, but members of
the 104th regiment, the 6th and 72nd
regiments of Vancouver, and the 5th
regiment of Victoria. There was also
present a fair sprinkling of the gentler sex, some with their children, and
all enjoyed to the full the excellent
program rendered.
The quarters were most beautifully
decorated, the national colors predominating, while conspicuous above the
platform hung a striking likeness of
His Majesty, the work of Mr. Ed.
Hoult, one of the prime movers of
the organization. Upon the walls were
displayed many trophies of war, some
of peculiar interest to British Columbia.
Rifles and swords, bayonets and
code flags added a martial air to the
scene while the snow shoes and skis
spoke of our lady of the snows, the
adopted or native land of all present.
Flowers, evergreens aud mottoes
were tastefully blended into the whole

the efforts of Lieutenant Northcote-
Johnson and Sergeants Major Wheeler and Robinson. These gentlemen
also had charge of Ce program and
were ably assisted by a group of talented artists, Mrs. C. O. Wheeler accompanying to perfection.
Mr.  Otway  Wilkie  took  the  chair
and a jovial  evening    ensued.    Mrs.
Wheeler     gave   several     pianoforte
pieces In an admirable manner, and

The reason for the general store
closing is partly on account of the
fact that there Is no weekly hot weather half holiday in vogue In New
Westminster as in many other cities
and therefore the loss of a day means
little or nothing to employee.

These are mostly in the hands of
Secretary MacKenzie. George Blakeley, chairman of the committee, has
established a new record by- disposing
of no less than 284 tickets in the past
five days. The other members of the

valley to a syndicate of local capitalists, consisting of Dr. R.Bden Walker,
Dr. A. J. Holmes, Mr. J. J. Jones, H.
Ryall, Mr. Peter Birrell and M. Oou-
veraux.
The block of land Is situated on tbe
eastern side of the Okanagan lake,
and contains 23 acreB of orchards and
50 acres of bench land where irrigation systems have already been completed. The price paid, it is under
stood, waa $50,000.
To the Westminster Dally News Mr
Jtwes stated that over one hundred
tona of peaches alone, would be
raised on this tract during the present
season, while lt was anticipated tbat
at least $,,1000 worth of fruits would
be sold off uHIb piece this fall. Tbe
land, he said, would be operated by
the buyers for .we little time, although It had been bought merely for
speculation.
Denver, July 15.���Five hundred
men, women and children are homeless,' a number of deaths are reported
and property valued at $1,600,000 la in
ruins here today as the result of a
cloudburst last night, which poured
vast quantities of water down the
shallow bed of Cherry Creek, which
runs tbrough the city.
The city auditorium is a refuge
camp. At dawn 500 were gathered
there. Twenty-flve babies from six
months to six years old are ln the
oare of the police matron.
Mayor Arnold organized relief parties to search tbe course of the flood,
which is a trail of wrecked dwellings,
and the Chamber of commerce has
opened a relief subscription.
Had It not been for telephonic warnings to the city ball just before the
crest of the flood reached the city,
many residents in the creek bottom
districts could not have escaped. The
flood ripped out. concrete walla that
lined the creek for two miles, washed away bridges and dwellings and
drove hundreds out of their homes or
to roof tops from which they were
rescued by policemen and firemen.
Reaching the Union depot the flood
spread three feet of water through
the. yards, putting out flres in locomotives, marooning two hundred persons and closing the city to traffic.
In response to a general call, physicians gathered at police headquarters
and were despatched to aid sufferers.
Mr. J. A. Rennle, of the Westminster Trust company, who has just returned from a flying trip to the Oga-
nagan country, declares that with the
possible exception of apples, the crop
of fruit in the upper country waa
never better than it is this present
season.
"There are only two things," eald
Mr. Rennle, "which might in any way
hinder    the   marketing   of a record
yield, and these are the problems of
help and transportation.    The latter,
perhaps, ls the least of the two, as
the C. P. R. bas recently added greatly to Its service on Okanagan lake, as
well as providing increased facilities
on the spur line from Sycamous Into
the valley.   There are now two steamers on the lake, Instead of one,   employed  solely  ln  gathering  up    the
fruits from the various ranches and
bringing them to Okanagan Landing
to be shipped nut over the railway.
"Help, however, ls already causing
the fruit growers considerable uneasiness, and nearly everyone Is working
shorthandnd during the cherry gathering season which is now thoroughly
under way. The contingency is being
met by some growers by recruiting
men from the coast employment
agencies, and paying their fares into
the fruit country."
With reference to the reported depredations wrought on fruit trees by
caterpillars and Insects at the beginning of the season, Mr. Rennie said
that the efforts put forth by the government and the farmers had been
eminently successful, and the danger
to any portion of the product this
year was practically nil.

LIFE ON AN OCEAN LINER.
It I* Vastly Different Now From What
It Was Seventy Years Ago.
The many cafes aboard a modern
ocean liner have the atmosphere ot tbe
boulevards. Tbe old, long baronial
board presided over by tbe captain, to
wbicb the passengers were summoned
by bell or trumpet, bas given way to
separate tables. One ls free to dine,
lunch or sup alone at any bour ln any
seat at any one of a hundred small
tables seating two, or oue may join a
party at a table seating seven, surrounded b.v decorations thnt rival tliose
of the best restaurants ashore.
And as In any tirst class hotel, the
guest la not restricted to a table d Hole
menu. He can order from nn epicure's
bill of fare, and all meals are included
iu tbe price ot the passage. Cafes for
those who do not smoke, a new convenience, have lhe air of suoh places
in Vienna. These ure distinct from tbe
open air veranda cafea wttb their teak-
wood tables.
instead of tbe Rait moats of twenty
years ago both cabin and steerage passengers hare fresh nieut dally. Twenty-eight thousand pounds of meat and
l."��.(XHJ liters of beer were consumed by
the passenpers of a single liner on one
reietit voyage, while on the same ship
the cost of setting ihe table for a single year was jf-i.uuu.uuo.
This talk of tine iircotniuodations
sounds expensive, says Hampton's

those expensive cabins unless you are
willing lo and can puy for them. All of
the other comforts, conveniences und

"Private" John Allen it out of tbo
political game, and maybe that accounts for the fact Ihnt, coming to
Washington on a iraln recently, be ran
into John Sharp Williams for the first
time in a year. It hns been some time
since tbe private was a member of tb*
house, and for the last congress Senator Elect Williams has been busy de-
reloping the toga type ot mind nfter
his years of service us bouse minority
leoder.
Allen has a place In Tupelo, tbe town
wliich his wit has made famous, wbile
Williams' acres ore spread across a
portion of lhe rich delta ot Mississippi,
so lt came about naturally that Ihe
two most famous sous of tbe Utiyoii
State ol.present alive should talk agriculture.
"Been forming. Sharp?" asked Allen.
"Some, John," rejoined Williams.
"and lot me (ell you. John, that my
land tn the delta Is tbe finest land In
the world. I drop a se*d of cotton
ln the morniug and by night It bas attained such majesty and maturity that
boll weevils as far off as Texas bare
beard of it."
"I've some good land around Tupelo,
snld Allen,   "lly tbe way. Sharp, fine
place. Tupelo    It Is"���
"For tony years." Interrupted Williams, "and I'm not sure tbnt it Isn't
fifty, I sat In the house nud beard yon
boast of Tupelo, a place. John, that
only my desire to protect n colleague
kept me from exposing as tbe land's
end of civilization, tbe bnis terra of
hope."
"No finer city exists." Bald Allen
warmly, "and so secure are the clulms
of Tupelo thut 1 will pass to another
topic. What do you do, Sharp, besides
farm?"
"Oh, I write a little, and 1 thiuk-a
little nnd talk"���
"A great deal. That's Interesting,
but natural.   Now, Sharp, I play golf.'
The brows of tbe senator elect raised
his eyes took on an expression of disappointment nnd sorrow.
"You-play-golf, John." be protested. "You play golf, do you? How do
jou expect our party to keep ibe farmer rote ln Mississippi?"
"That's all right," assured Private
Allen. "I was lu Jackson n little while
ago. and I saw a play there. Tbey discussed golf In the play, and when I
heard tbem call it 'cow pasture pool'

rstss a House In Berlin.
In Berlin, as a tourist turns Into tha
Helllgeugelst, not far from the kaiser's palace, he will see. fixed in a niche
In the second story of tbe bouse No.
88, a bust carved in stone. This is
called the "Neidhopf." it representa
a hideous, harpy faced woman, with
snakelike curls of balr and tongue
sticking out ln mocking derision. Tbls
is the story of its origin and purpose:
One day almost 200 years ago Frederick William of Prussia, "Old Fritz,"
was walking about tbe streets of his
city In tbe shabby, free and easy wny
be lored, looking about for some grlev.
ance to redress or some load to lighten,
which was an agreeable habit of this
plain living king. Looking in at a window, be was struck by the Intent Industry of a humpbacked goldsmith,
and so tbe king entered tbe little shop
for a chat The result ef Ws inter
view waa an order for a gold table service for the royal household, wbicb
made tbe fortune of tbe hunchback.
Later tbe king made other visits to
see ho wtha work was progressing and
on one of these occasions noticed a
woman ln the window of tbe opposite
house, making the most hideous grimaces and pointing a derisive finger at
the little cripple.
"What ls the matter with the shrew
over there?" usked Frederick William.
"It is envy, your majesty." exclaimed
tbe goldsmith. "She is tbe wife of a
rival goldsmith, and ever since your
majesty gave me thU order sbe and
ber daughter have not ceased to mock
and deride me.
Frederick William, paternal In punishment as well as lo reward, at once
made Inquiries as to the ownership of
the house wherein this shrew lived.
He found tbst It belonged to ber bus-
bund, and therefore reasoned tbat
tbere was little likelihood of the family moving. This seemed to please
blm. He next enlisted tbe services of
a sculptor and ordered blm to make
tbe bust of a woman wttb tbe most
shrewish. Xantlpne like fnce be could
Imagine. Tbe king tben bought and
renovated tbe bouse in wbicb tbs
hunchback bad his workshop, present
ed It to blm snd csused tbe bust to
be plared conspicuously sbove tbs
workroom window. Thus whenever
tbe envious woman across tbe street
looked forth from her cn semen t tbe
flrst thing on which ber eyes fell wss
tbis Intended portrait of ber amiable
self.
For more than 100 years the ".Wid

would sny In English, stood In proud
prominence, s reproach to tbe envious
Frau (Joldschmled and ber dew-end
ants. It afterward mysterttisly dls
appeared, but In IS40 or thereabouts
it was found ngaln ln a forgotten collection of brie u brae. Frederick William IV. bought tbe bust for a very
large price und bad It replaced In lta

"MY STOMACH IS FINE
Slice Taking Na-Dru-Co Dyspepsia Tabids"
Mrs. J. Merkhuger, Waterloo, Ont.,
enthusiastically recommends Na-Dra-Co��
Dyspepsia Tablets. Her experience with
them, aa she outlines it, explains wby.
��'I  was  greatly   troubled   with my
stomach", she writes.   "I had taken so
much medicine thst I might say to take
any  more  would  only be making it
worse.   My stomach just felt raw.   I
I  read of Na-Dru-Co Dyspepsia Tablets,
and a lady friend told me they were
very easy to tike,, so I thought I wonld
give them a trial and really tbey worked
I  wonders.      Anyone  having  anything
wrong witb hts stomach  should give
Na-Dru-Co Dyspepsia Tablets a trial,
I  they will do the rest,   My stomach is
i  fine now and I can eat any food."
'      One of the many good features of
Na-Dru-Co Dyspepsia Tablets  is that
tbey are so pleasant snd easy to take.
The relief they give from heartburn,
flatulence, biliousness and dyspepsia is
prstapt and permanent.   Try one after
each meal���they'll make yon feel like

were as generously supported aa were

a leading role.

W. Buell Meldrum was born in
1887. on a farm near Hull, Quebec,
the son of Thomas Meldrum, a retired
farmer, who has been a resident ol
Ottawa for some few years. Buell
Meldrum was educated by private
tuition until he passed ths entrance
examination into the Ottawa Col-
legiate in 1901. Three veart later he
matr.culated into McGill University,
winning a scholarship of $125 for
general proficiency. During his first
year at McGill li���. won first honors in

lng endowments, ttie state enlarged her
heart and began to give generously to
tbe university that under tbe ordinance of 1787 hud been planted In each
commonwealth of the northwest und
endowed wltb public lands.
Thanks to tbe agitation for state aid.
tbe people of tbe west have come to
a different conception ot tbe role of
higher education from the people ot
the northeast. They regard It leas as
tbe basis of Individual success tban as
a sure means to social progress, and
tbey agree that (he state should bear a
part of the cost of social progress, la

ominous drift toward economic inequality has made them solicitlous to

build 'ip n university that would be

London, July 15.���England is getting seriously alarmed at the truculent attitude cf the suffragettes who
have passed beyond the window-
smashing stage and even beyond mere
assaults on cabinet ministers.
Following the attempted bomb outrage at the home of Secretary McKenna and the supposed plot to fire
Lewis Harcourt's residence come
open threats against McKenna and
other ministers by male and female
suffragists. Yesterday at Hyde Park
demonstration Mr. Desmond said:
"We have seriously considered the
fall of the home secretary. He has to
go. We are wondering where we shall
send him. I see that explosives have
been found in the home secretary's office. Perhaps if they had gone off he
would be of no further trouble to ub.
Militancy is carred on all over the
country by women determined that
something tragic shall happen to
bring this to an end."
Hatpin Stage Passed.
Keir Hardie, the labor member of
parliament, who also spoke in support of the women's cause, said:
"There will be more than hatpins
used, more than epaulettes torn from
men's shoulders."
Referring to the outrage on Premier Asquith at the political reception,
he said the time has come and gone
by for half-hearted measures.
"The cabinet," he said, "as it is now
composed, is even more hostile than
before to the enfranchisement of
women. Therefore greater pressure
will have to be applied."
The attempt to blow up the home of
Mr. Reginald McKenna, the home secretary, was discovered by Secretary
McKenna himself on Friday.
Soon after entering his room the
home secretary found beside the curtain a vessel containing explosive material.
Chancellor Lloyd George was assaulted by a male suffragist while he
was entering Kensington Theatre,
South Ixmdon, where he made a
speech Saturday. A man bolted from
behind a pillar and pushed the chancellor, causing him to fall to the
ground. The man was arrested. The
chancellor was not Injured.

Tolnt  Grey,   July   15.--What  may
���irove to be a particularly interesting
ircheological flnd ot Indian bones and
irlmitive aboriginal utensils, has been
I'soovored by two men engaged In
clearing a lot close to the Marine
drive In Point Grey.
The lot in question ls located about
hnlf a mile weBt of tho Reformatory
ind close to the shore of English bay.
While digging around a big fir stump
preparatory to putting some giant
lowder under it, the workmen discovered at a depth of about two feet,
the remains of the skeleton of what
muat have been a pretty big Indian���
much larger than the average member of the present Siwash tribe. The
shape of the skull is also somewhat
different from that of the average
coast Indian of today. The tibia and
humerus were In a fair state of preservation, considering the evident extreme age of the skeleton, aa the tree
that grew over Its resting place must
have been a couple of hundred years
old. Only a short distance away trom
the skeleton, and evidently forced
there by the action of tho roots of the
tree In their growth, waa a couple of
primitive stone Implements. One waa
notched in a curloua manner and may
have been used as a war club or weapon of somo sort, although It was hard
to aay positively what It may have
been.as the handle had long since rotted awiiy,     "  '        ���
The other waa a broad. flat-Bhaped
stone Instrument drilled for a handle,
wlijch hud evidently been attached to
It at one time. The bones and implements were carefully gathered up and

Loyal men are in favor of tearing
down the trade barriers within the

wall against Britain. Thc people in
this part of Canada   are   demanding

NAVAL DEVELOPMENT

to the front in England.
The Lord Mayor ha3 called a meeting at the Mansion House for July 22
to discuss this vexed though not yet
burning issue.
In the invitations to the meeting,
much stress is laid on the supposed

declare that the cities cf Salamanca
and Celaya have been wiped off the
map. The number of ;victiras can not
be foretold until the ahgry waters subside.
The flrst of lhe' series of cloudbursts and floods which have stricken
the wealthy state of Guamajato, occurred several weeks ago, when a
large part of the capital was washed
away with several hundred peons who
were unable to reach places of safety
A few days ago the bottom again
dropped out of tho heavens, and
quickly covered the valley of Santiago to a depth of two metres. The
natural outlets became clogged, and
within half an hear nothing could be
seen of two of the little cities but the
roofs of the houses,, covered with ter-1
ror-striken people praying for deliverance. Darkness fell over the doomed |
cities, and the electric light plants I
further down the valley were washed |
away, and this tended to add to the
pank. According to advices received
from the correspondent of El Impar-
clal, it is probable that more than
1000 lives and at least $20,000,000
worth of property were destroyed before the vast body of water subsided.
Starvation Threatens.
Every house in the path of the flood
was torn from its foundation. Owing
to the unsettled conditions prevailing
as the result cf the rebellion and the
fact that crops generally have been
neglected, it is feared that thousands
will die of hunger. Nearly 2000 laborers have been collected in the city
of Mexico and sent to the scene of the
disaster to aid in the work of recovering bodies and restoring the cities
sufficiently to shelter those who escaped death.

Why Royalist Attack Primarily Failed
���Troubles  of   Republic.
Lisbon, July 13.���The government
is now In possession of the completf
plans of the royal'st.i. These show
that Beveral reg'ments in lhe Lisbon
garrison were in league with them
and it was arranged that these troops'
should march into the streets and proclaim the re-e3tablishment of the monarchy on the night that Captain Cou-
cerio. the Royalist leader, crossed the
frontier. The rivalry between Cou-
oorlo and one of the principal leaders
at Lisbon, however, caused the conspiracy to fall through.
Although the Royalists have been
defeated, the Repubican forces apparently are not having things all
thoir own way and the government is
exercising the most stringent censorship on foreign press despatches.
lt is estimated that up to tlie present, the Royalists have lost 250 killed
and 170 wounded. The Republican
loss ls heavy, but it is not known exactly, ns the minister of war refuses
to make public the casualty list.

Baseball Nine of Morning Paper Run

*r
the score of
the baseball
nine of the Westminster Daily
News humbled the
the staff of the
British Columbian
to the dust last
evening in one of
the most spirited
battles that has ever been pulled
off on a local diamond. It made
the eyes of Managers Herti Ryall,
Chockley and Graham the three
leading human beings connected
with the city baseball league) water
with envy when they watched the
newspaper boys hand out to the fans
stuff that equalled and excelled anything the major leagues can dish out.
Managers Maiden and Andrew, of
the British Columbian and News respectively, spent a busy day gathering
together the paraphernalia necessary
for a ball game, and at 6:30 o'clock
the two aggregations lined up to
battle for the championship of (he
city. Following the usual ceremony
of taking pictures (sic) of the crews,
Manager Maiden s(alked to the plate
with the utmost Intention of cloutinr,
the pill over the club house.
Three strikes were enough for Bill
and the other two batsmen got the
same treatment. For the News Shaw
singled, Andrew walked, Tompkins
cracked out a double, Henderson
singled, and a passed ball brought in
altogether three runs. Tbis was some
ball game. The opposition came back
in the second and managed to score
on a series of errors.
The Becond went paBt with no addition to the three already recorded, although a (wo bagger by the sporting
editor featured. It saved him from
the crowd who got peeved at some
errors he had made.
The Columbian again came back
and tied the score in the third. Errors
. again. The News side was powerless
to score In the next frame owing to
the second breath not having hove
Into  sight.
Their hated foes crept ahead in the
next through free pilfering of bases,
but not a single hit had been made
from Tompkins, the twlrler for the
News. Shaw singled in the fourth.
Andrew bunted out a safe one, but
(he add setter pulled off a bonohead
pluy by staying at first. He was out.
Tompkins was equal to the emergency
and cracked out another, which
. brought the first baseman through.
Henderson, who ia no slouch bf a bitter. *dde4 anathet feather to bis cap
by bringing in Tompkins. Score 5-1.
Th* B. C. again took a flight in the
fifth and failed to Bcore. Bill Maiden
ngaln struck out. The last of the fifth
found the News whaling the ball ln
all directions and four players cantered over the plate, Doyle with a three
bagger being the feature. Try as
they would, the opposition could not
overcome the lead, although they
brought iu three runs. For the - vanquished. BUI Maiden and Joe Tyler
were the stars. (?) Illll only hit
the ball once and that went in a
waiting mitt Ab for Tyler, he was a
���disappointment to all ;.resent, following the talk that had gone tbe rounds
regarding hls slugging. Tompkins
pitching a no hit game and Andrew,
on first base, were the features or
thc News team. The latter misjudged
15 out of 16 chances on first, and but
for his batting would be dropped from
the team for all time to come. The
score is as follows: |

Stockholm, July 15.���The bestowal
of all the prizes by the King, who
placed laurel wreaths on the heads
of the victors and shook hands with
them, took place today iu the stadium.
The King conferred on the winners
of first pri��e an oak wreath, a gold
medal and a challenge cup. Crown
Prince Custave Adolph presented a
Silver medal to the members of the
Second group and Prince Charles,
brother of the King, handed bronze
medals to the third group. A herald
In mediaeval costume called the
names of each, who then stepped forward and  received  the prize.
The marathon winner, McArthur,
of South Africa, received the greatest cheer. He appeared in green
pants, with bare arms and legs. In
addition to other laurels he was presented with a bronze statue of the
original marathon hero falling at the
finish. The King applauded him and
held his hand Tor a long time.
James Thorp, Carlisle Indian school
von the decathlon, and the American
quarter milers ran away with the 1800
metres relay. England probably would
have taken second place instead of
France, but her llrst man, Nicol, developed lameness.
The hop, step and jump proved
wholly a Swedish event. The northern
country took the three leading places
and divided the cross country race of
8000 metres, which really was a test
of cliff climbing and ability to penetrate underbrush, with the husky Fins
second, while the English team was
third. The Americans for the first
time in this class of work were absolute outsiders.
Two events have cast a shadow on
the Olympic games. The Portuguese
runner, F. Lazaro, who ran in the
marathon, died today from sunstroke.

Furthermore he stated that the shoe
the next pugilistic   encounter   comes

Why i3 this? What is ths raignet
wliich draws even clergymen to the
bulletin boards (as was the case in
Ottawa the other day) to lean the
progress of a brutal contest between
two professional pugl-ists? The
clergymen may, of course, have the
excuse that they were seeking a topic
for next Sunday's sermons, but that
must rank on a par will} the theory
that when a circus comes to town it
is necessary for the grown-ups to visit
it because the children vant to see
the show.
The fact seems to be that, whether
we like it or net, we still retain, even

Had Wellington not commanded the

question, a atory told tn Rachel Chai-
Uce'a "Secret History ot the Court ot

came nearer tban bf (knew to being
relieved ot his enemy and future conqueror.
Wben tbe Anglo-Spanish army drove
Joseph Bonaparte from Madrid attentions were showered upon tbe English commsnder, Lord Wellington, wbo,
however. *ook little pains to be cor

have bis portrait painted by Goya nearly caused the future hero ot Waterloo
to lose bts life.

Spanish painter wss Irascible to a degree, the more ao that be was completely deat. Wben tbe great general
mode his appearance In tbe studio tbe
painter's son Interpreted the Englishman's wishes In deaf and dumb language to his father.
The artist worked assiduously and
wben he thought lhe portrait far

general. Unfortunately tbe picture did
bot please lhe commander, wbo
shrugged his shoulders contemptuously and snld tbnt be would not accept
sucb a caricuture us a gift
The artist's soo declined to translate
this deprecatory remark, but the arttst
bad noted the scornful gestnres of tbe
Englishman, and the son In alarm saw
bia father turn his eyes to tbe loaded

Notice is hereby given that the Corporation of the City of New Westminster intends to pass a Local Improvement Assessment By-law assessing
the properties in the schedule above mentioned the sums of money set opposite each lot for thirty years, and a Court of Revision for the trial of
complaints and appeals against the assessment so proposed to be made will

W. A. DUNCAN, City Clerk.
City Hall, July 11, 1912.
Date of first publication July 12, 1912.
In its day. but tbe colonel bad met wltb
all sorts ot bad luck and couldn't pny
bis debts. Ue had a few cattle and one
cowboy left, wliile a colored woman
assisted Rose about the housework.
Rose Meecbam bad uot been educated In tbe east. She bad been born In
tbe ranch bouse und sent to a scbool
not a bundred miles away, nnd ber environments bad been ot the plainest.
As tbe adoring tatber said of her more
lhan once after his wife died:
"Hosie Is good looking und honest
hearted aud will make some man a
good wife. There's uottiing of the coquette or flirt ahout ber. She doesn't
know wbat ;i flirtation means, she's
Just a plain girl, with tier heart set on
doing ail sbe can for her old daddy."
That was Ihe colonel's way ol putting it. uud it simply shows bow little
the average futher knows of the average daughter. Miss Hose was good
looking uud honest hearted, but she
would flirt wlib a cross eyed cowboy.
"Rut be don't look like a feller wbo
could be run." was protested.
"Make no mistake, my boy. Tou can
run hls coat tails out straight If only
you go about It right."
"But bow cun I make n bero of myself?"
"That's a pnrt of the gnme. Now
listen to me."
Three days later tho sergeant rode
up to the ranch with bis chest puffed
out and a complacent look on bis face
He felt that be wns n winner. He was
going to honor lhe ranchman's daughter hy taking her Into Uncle Sam's
service.
His welcome wasn't quite as genial
as It might bnre been, as Mlss It ose
was beginning to feel conscience stricken nbout Joe Whitman. She hnd found
ou mature consideration tbat she liked
Joe very much, nnd wben n n girl will
admit that and he sorry that sbe flirted
with another man nt the same time sbe
Is very near the point of loving.
Tbe horse was left ut the stables, and
the pair started for the cave on foot,

tbe tie up of street cars caused considerable consternation.

MUNICIPAL CLAUSES ACT.
Section Interferes With City's Finances���Redress.
With the authority of the council
the acting mayor has written to Sir
Richard McBride, K.C.M.G., Premier,
asking for.the legalization of thc sale
of Westminster bonds at the next
meeting of the house.
At the present time an error in
section 63 of the Municipal Clauses
Act, wliich act empowers the council
to issue local Improvement debentures, read-a "five" instead of "nine"
and thus prevents the city from obtaining a temporary loan from the
bank.
A reply was received from Sir Richard and read at last night's meeting
of tlie city council in which it was
stated that the matter had been placed iu the hands of the attorney-general, who would adjust the difficulty
immediately.

arrived in the clty during the latter

At the evening service the evangelist delivered a most inspiring addres3
on neglecting salvation, taking hia
text from Heb. 2, verse 3, "Neglect,
escape and the great salvation."' Mr.
Sampson's sermon created a
impression upon his hearers,
listened with unusual fervor to
MANY   GOING   NORTH.
To Witness Unparalleled Scenery of
Alaska.
The Grand Trunk Pacific Steamship
line has inaugurated the opening of
the late summer tourist travel by the
operation of a through boat service to
Stewart. This affords an opportunity
for sightseers aud tourists to take advantage of the service to visit the
coast of Alaska and view the unpar-
alelled scenery among the islands and
glaciers en route.
Many of the passengers making this
interesting trip, enjoy the advantage
of taking a side trip from Prince Rupert to the unfinished section of the
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway, mountain division, as far as Skeena river
crossing, and thence by boat to Hazelton. The warm wave being experienced is resulting in many people going north just now.

i that such places as Westminster, Vancouver   and   the   Fraser   Valley,   are
healthy and vigorous.
Ab the automobile fs considered to
be the most appropriate available emblem of modernity, it has been chosen
by the boosters from British Columbia for the parade, which   is to take
