The looked for excursion to the
Sandheads came off with great success yesterday, everyone of the sixty
or bo who took part in lt coming back
with a hetter realization of those
possibilities whieh lie before West-
mlntter as a great port. Of the realization of those possibilities the party
saw the beginning in the line of jetty
whloh is gradually being pushed out
from ihe land to the sand flats.
The following   gentlemen   accepted
the invltaiion  of the hoard  of  trade

now the task of keeping clear the one

Vancouver and Weatmlnster Both
Oppose It���No Reason for Change.
Captain C. Gardner Johnson, secre-
tar.v of the Vancouver pilotage board,
yesterday expressed his astonishment
when told that Westminster was
strongly onposed to the removal of
the lightship fiom its present position at the Sandheads, and that representations ctn that effect had boen
made to Ottawa,
He stated that the Vancouver board
also was onposed to the removal of
the lightship. This body would apparently be ready to back up the case
for Westmlns'er if needed. The only
supposition that can be ofTered as ta
the reason for the proposed removal
or tbe ship Is that vessels plying between Seattle and X'ahcbuver" would

A beginning was made yesterday on
the McWuter's case that has attracted
so much attention. The llrit thing

waa gone over three times before the

U. .T. P. McWaters, was in a different
position, bein;; then the principal witness of the crewn and his wife was
the defendant. She was charged with
sending threatening letters to her
husband. Against ber will the counsel appearing for her pleaded tsuilt;
to the chaige and she was let out on
suspended sentence, which meant that
she might be brought in and sentenced. The lawyer took it into his
own hands.
The man and his wife had been
married about five years, and about
January, 1911, she left him and refused to return. The crown suggests
that it was to force her to return that
thp letters were sent b.v the accused
and also to punish her for not doing

Therefore while there is divergence of

and   orphans,   and   warned  him   that

brought the letter to the station are
seemed to be in fear of his life, eaid
the witness, which was, hove.er, his
usual manner.
There followed several other letters of the same character, and of n
most strange wording.   Some of them
stated that the   writer   belonged    to
three societies���the Bond cMala. the
K. K. K.   and   the   Camorra,   others
were full of threats and strafe words

Later the mysterious writers were
apparently closing in on their victim
for soon after  the  above letter was
received, that is on July 2, 1911, the
accused came to the station and saitl
that some men had tried to get him
to take carbolic  acid.    The  witness,
Chief  Parkinson,   said  that  he  went
over to the house with him.   His face
was  burned  with  the acid,  but    ht
thought there was, no signs   in   his
mouth or throat of the stuff.   He also
saw a pile of ashe3 on the floor and
asking the man what they meant was
told  that he guessed  that they  had
tried to burn him out.   He later found
that  the ashes  were cold,  the   floor
was not marked, and there was an oil-
soaked coat hanging over the ashes
He found that the bottle from which
the acid came had a skull and bones
drawn on it.   This bottle became exhibit 15 in. the case.   The man was
tal   a  to the station and    then    the
chief sent him to see Dr. Hall. Meanwhile he, the chief, and Mr. Wllkie,
at that time'head of the provincial
rollce in Westminster, went over to
the house.    The accused came back
about 11 a.m.
About this time there was a warrant Issued for the woman and   (be
witness said that he and the chief
were during   the   evening   of July 4
watching tbe house of Mrs. Roseberry.
He came home late, and noticed about
midnight thnt there was a light In

Resents Accusation.
When court opened yesterday morn- -
ing Mr. McQuarrie created somewhat
ot a sensation by rising in bis place -
as soon as his lordship took his seat
and declaring that he had received Information that   the   jury   had   been
tampered with.    He especially named'
Albert W., E. C. and A. L. EiqkhofT.
One of them he understood to Jiave
said that lf he bad got on tbe Jury-
he would have found a prisoner not-
guilty because he had been ln prison-
long enough.   He also declared that
the counsel for the accused had made ���
Insulting remarks for the purpose of
Influencing the Jury.
This brought Mr. Bole to his feet ���*
and he    demanded    an   explanation,.
which Mr. McQuarrie gave, although
his lordship proposed to end the matter by dismissing the Jury.   Mr. McQuarrie declared that the case was
a very serious one; that Mr. Bole had
called the Burnaby Chief of police a
bloodhound, and said that he couldi
manufacture letters and he could not'
tell the difference between -them. Mfr._
McQuarrie continued that his learnedt
friend was guilty ot actions that werer
reprehensible in a member of the bar-
He also said that he had been associating too freely with the members;
of the Jury and that after the George-
Billy case, Albert Elckhoff had shaken
hands with Mr. Bole and said that he '
had done all he could tor him, and'
that as recently as that morning Mr.
Bole had beeu talking with them.
Mr. Bole said that lf It were not
so vindictive it would be childish. His .

The following letter from the famine distiict in China glveB a vivid picture of tlie need and the difficulties
in the way of the work of relief.
"I think that In all of Anbwel. Ko-
yang has suffered most by the revolution. During an entire montli the
city waa occupied by flve or six hundred brigands under the leadership of
a man by the name of Wang Che
Hsui. They pillaged and burned like
regular savages. The town was be-
selgod for 17 days by from three to
four thousand Imperial troops who
are really as much robbers as the brl
i'ands themselves* The town is absolutely ruined, the Mandailn has nr,
authority whatever. Two days ngo
he was fired at twice. The gentry
are tei rifle 1. The most Intelligent of
their number have been condemned
to death. They are absolutely ruined
an I are hiding no one knows where.
The public granaries are almost
empty. In the country many of the
villages bave been burned. There ls
no security to life. In many places
they have pillaged, burned and stolen
solely for the sake of vengeance, as
in France in 1791.
Calm is gradually being restored,
but in the north eastern section there
are stlil brigands. Two hundred soldiers attacked tbem yesterday, bul.
these soldieis treat the honest people
almost as badly as tlie brigands
themselves. To be brief, it woull be
better to be a dog in America today
than a land owner in Koyang. I
speak of this spirit of vengeance simply to show you the real conditions.
Personally, I have suffered nothing at
the   hands   of Republicans, imperial
ists,  or brigands.      The latter have
protected me.
But in truth In Koyang they have
been conducting themselves like savages for the laEt two months. The
people who are alieady famished do
not content themselves simply with
stealing and eating the grain of others, but they stupidly burn down the
houses and grain which they cannot
carry away. One cannot but think
that they are a troop of wolves who
will not be satisfied until they have'
eaten one another up.
As to the sending of grain or silver
to Kayang, it. will be necessary first
to make navigation safe on the Ko
river. All such navigation has been
absolutely impossible. Yesteiday I
sent to Father David at HwaJyuan.
He stated that tit Fochow there are between two and three thousand boats
whose proprietors are dying of starvation and uncertainty, and who do not
dare descend the Ko for fear of rob-

London, May IG.���The problem or
taking simultaneous cinematograph
films and phonograph records appears
to have been successfully, solved at
laEt. At the Koyal Institute yesterday, i'rof. William Stalling gave a
demonstration of his ne.v "chrono-
phone" before n distinguished gathering of scientists an I public men, and
the results weie ;oniar'Aable. Thr
first test showed Ian Colquhoun reciting "The ClampferhoWtt." M. Galllpauy
acted a comic monologue, a Hon
tamer was seen cowing bis obstrep-
orous charges and then a banjo play:
er appeared. In every ease the
sound of -voice was e: act with the actions shown on lhe screen and the result, was as lifeline as couid bo Imagine! The prelude to entertainment
was'a living picture of nu immense
rooster which was shown In every
tint, of his natural colors and crowing with all his might as he flapped
his wings. Prof. Cterllng stated thai
the invention, which Is due largely to
the ingenuity of Leon Gacmont, who
has collaborated in the woHt. comprises two electric motors of Identical

Winnipeg, May lfi.���A record was
broken j esterday in the annals of the

alarms were turned in, in   24  hours.
Previous to >eite:day 18 was the
record for 24 hours made a littie over

of ill es was attributed to the high

The majority of the fires yesterday
were small ones, the most destructive
blaze occuning at 73 Alexander avenue east, where a stable filled with
hay was completely gutted. The
biiilc'ing was the propeity of tbe
Guest Fish company and the damage
dune was estimated at about (600.
Of the 21 alarms sent in yesterday
10 were fires in buildings; nine were
burning chimneys and two were false

origin; although some of them we ���

The balrdresslng indulged in by these
women was nicit wonderful. Crown
ing the erection of curls an.l ringlets
were hats very motifrn in their as-
ieet, and. one imagines, as large as
those of today. Mr. Balkie saw a seal
from .Mycenae rep:eventing three women adorned with accordion-plaited
skirts, showing that heels of a fair
height were sometimes worn on the
shces. Necklaces, bracelets and other articles of adornment were lu general use, and the workmanship of
some of the surviving specimens Is
astonishingly fine.
Remains of the houses In which
these women lived were as interesting as their headgear and their costumes and aa several of the houses
have beeu excavated in gool condition, the picture ls made rather complete. "The houses which were occupied by these modern-looking ladles
and their mates," says Mr. Balkie,
"were unexpectedly unlike anything
In the house-building of tbe classical
period. There is little of .the uniformity of style and anangement
which characterizes the ordinary
Greek house. The MInoan burgher
built his home as the requirements of
his site and of hls household suggested, and was not the slave of any
flxe.l convention in the matter of
plan. The houses at Gournla, Palalka-
stro and Zakro, which may be taken
aa typical specimens of ordinary
iMInoun domestic architecture, must
have been much more like modern
houses than anything we know of in
Greek towns of the classical period;
and the elevations of MInoan villas
preserved in the faience plaques from
tbe chest at Knossos suggest the,
frontages of a suburban avenue. Some
of the Knosslan plaques show houses
of three and four stories, with- windows filled in with a red material,
which, as Dr. Evans suggests, may
have been oiled an.1 tinted parchment.    ..
"Within doors an:l walls were finished with smooth plaster, and probably decorated with painting, though,
of course, on a humbler scale than ln
the palaces. The floors ware ot
flagstones and cement, even tn thc
upper stories, and. ln some cases, of
cobbles or of earth rammed hard.
The furniture of the rooms haa perished, excopt In the case of such articles as were of stone and plaster;
but the evidence we possess of the
comfort and even the luvury of the
life of these times iu other reapects
suggests that the townfolk of Gour-
rla and the other Cretan towns were
not lacking ln any of the esentlals ot
a comfortable ��� home life. . . In
their own fashion the MInoan houses
woe doubtless quite adequately appointed, and the great va'lety of domestic utensils which has survived
shows that life In the bronze age

thing   of   primitive   and   rough-and-.

"New Westminster has taken the
lead in organizing the flrst National
Reserve in Canada. . . In Canada
*.here are thousands of these men
<old service men) spread over the
country who havo dropped completely
���out of sight, as far as their old affiliations go, merely because no one has
taken the trouble to organize some
nucleus on which they can rely.
... If such organizations (as the
National Reserve) can be formed in
various districts throughout the Dominion they will be the means of
bringing thes�� veterans together and
also i>iove an efficient method of
raising a large and highly trained
tiody of men at the very shortest notice. Canada, can not afford to miss
such an opportunity. Xew Westminster has given the lead and tliere
should be no difficulty for Vancouver,
acting, possibly though the United
Service Club, to follow."
Tho above is an extract from the
editorial columns of the Vancouver
Province. This Is a proof that tlie
good seed sown in this city by Die
organizers of the National Reserve is
bearing fruit. Vancouver has seen
the advantages of such a movement.
Let us hope that they will put it into
praatice there and that from that
city it will spread still further, east
to the Atlantic coast and west to the
island, the white man's outpost towards the yellow Orient.
In Westminster   names   are   heing
enrolled every day and the muster Is
rapidly growing.     As yet though   the
field has hardly been scratched and it
is believed that very shortly the number will i each tlie hundreds.      It is
sincerely  to be  hoped that this  will
*>e the ease-br the time the minister
*ot mllltla.  Col. Sam  Hughes,  urrives
on  the coast.      That la likely to  he
��hoiUy and every  man alrea&y registered is urged to Inform his friends ol
the movement and  see that they  also send In their names   to the City
tiie rest, and their good ladies constitute the "party," and a great time
they have in the capital. They call
themselves the United Social Club,
and such ls the extent of their organization that the officers and committee alone run to twenty-four mem-
beis. There is tho chairman, Councillor Watmough; Mr. Cope, the secretary; iMr. Wilson, his assistant; Mr.
Duffy, treasurer; anl a committee of
twenty men and women, who work
Ior months beforehand planning the
many details of so mighty an exodus.
Between eit-ht and eleven last night
i lie 500 mustered at the United Hotel,
Ashton New-road, and at 11:OB the
speflal tramway cars carred them off
to town. At 11:40 their "piivate special express" steamed out.of the Central Station, but minutes beforo this
the traveleis had been comfortably
settled. Playing curds had been produced���150 packs at least���and three
refreshment bats were in various
stages of opening, one at each ond of
Ihe corridor train and one in the mid-
die. Already large urns were beginning to steam, with lea, coffee and so
on, and busy men In white sleeves
(members of the committee) were
ranging bottles in stately, array in
the bars to be ready when the men
folk should feel thii sty. Free refreshment of all kinds is the rule, and yel
it is claimed that not once in the ten
years of the "party's" existence has
there been a case of excess. It ls a
fine record.

Sapperton Has Short End of 6-5 Score
���Burnaby's Long Passing Game
Tl'e second game in the Intermediate lacrosse league was pulled off
last, evening at Queens park,- the Sap-
pertonlans being defeated by the
Blast Burnaby aggregation to the tune
of six to flve. On points of play, the
suburbanites deserve! their victory
and with a lltila^inoro practice should
be strong contenders for the leadership of the league. Their long passing tame, while not very effective at
the critical moment, worked to pood
effect in their movements toward
their opponents' goal, and with a
little more steadiness this style of
play will he a dangerous one to the
other teams.
Walter Dawe opened the seoMng for
East Buinaby and was followed by
Ferguson, Towards the end of the
lirst quarter Johnston, for Sapperton,
put one through. The second quarter
ppened with a rush, Follis scoring
two Iii quick succession, putting the
Snpjertona ahead. Not to be denied,
however. Kast Burnaby came hack,
Dawe sco:lng three more. lie, ln
com'iany with Midget Feedham, form
a dangerous combination, the latter
working the hall close in and with
faultless pass work, Dawe did the
needful nearly every time. Sapperton
fought desperately during the closing
mlniltes of play and scored two from
the sticks of Johnston and Sclater,
but were unable to overcome the
lead. Archibald, the home player'for
Rast Buinaby, had a tendency to mix
things, and watched the game from
the side lines at different times.

The Division of Entomology of the
Expeiimental Farms Branch of the
Dominion Department of Agriculture,
Ottawa, has recently Issued a bulletin by Dr. C. Gordon Hewitt, Dominion Entomologist, on "The Control of
Insect Pests in Canada."
An account is given of the history
of the war against Insect pests In
Canada and of the manner in which
insect ports have invade.1 the country as It has been gradually opened
up and cultivated. The manner In
whioh thc Dominion and Proyincial
governments are endeavoring by legislation and othe. means to prevent
tho introduction of insect pests into
Canada and the increase and spread
of those pesis already here is describe!. An interesting summary of
the rarlous lines, of work undertaken
and carried on hy the Division of Entomology at Ottawa Is given, and the
geneial public will no doubt be surprised at the many problems which
come within the scope of the entomologists who aie called upon to deal
with Insects in their lelations to all
the varied activities of man; insects
affecting farm crops, fruit growing,
forest, and shade trees: insects attacking man's possessions tnd Infesting houses, attacking domestic animals an.l finally affecting the health
of man. All Insects, however, are not
injurious and ftie work or the entom-
o'o^i^t includes bees and beekeeping
and the study of parisltlc an t other
eneml*?8 which mav bo of assistance
ln obtaining control of insect pests.

Commissioner In Birmingham Can
Speak Well Only of Ou- Cheese.
Quite a batch of inquiries have
been received at this office during
tba laut few days lor bacon, ham. batter, cheese and eua. Oofnmenta were
solicited by your TMimmissioiier, with
a yiew to ascertaining the opinions
of leading importers regarding quality, methods of packing, etc. Some
ol these comments should be of service to Canadian houses. A Wolverhampton firm writes:
"We hive purchased a larce quantity of Canadian cheese during 1911,
which has been highly satisfactory.
We have not imported any Canadian
butter, bacon or eggs during 1911,
for  the  following  reasons:���
(a) The last shipment of Canadian
butter we received was very badly
packed, the kegs were not over clean,
and the color of the wood was ol a
dark character which gave a bad appearance to the butter. We would
suggest to you that if it were possible
for the Canadian packers to procure
a : inillar wood to that used by the
Danish, Swedish and Finnish dairies,
it would be a vast improvement on
the Canadian methods, and we have
no doubt,, considerably stimulate increased business relationship between
the Dominion and the Mother Country
in this commodity. Such a high grade
of quality, an J so consistently good
has the Danish butter been kept, Ihat
the British public have learned to
look to that butter as being perfection
in quality, and consequently their
method of packing, namely, in cwt. |
casks, has coi-i to be recognized by
the continental packers as being the
ideal method for high-class dairies of
butter; therefore, we would suggest
that the Canadian dairies might, with
benefit to themselves, copy the continental packing for butter, bi.tli as regards size, shape, and color of wood.
(b) We have imported no Canadian
bacon during 1911 on account of the
extreme cheapness of Chicago products, which have invariably been
three or four shillings per cwt. cheaper than t..e Canadian meats (we refer
now to the highest grade of'quality
in both cases.)
(c) As regards eggs, we have not received any shipments, nor did we, until we received your communication,
know that Canada was prepared to
ship eggs to England, and we shall he
pleased to receive quotations.���Report

Winnipeg's  Best Corners.
Of the central corners of Winnipeg
none at the present day retain more
of its pristine appearance than the
northeast corner of Portage avenue
and Main stieet. Hemmed in on
every side by giant skyscrapers and
palatial structures that are among
tlie most netewoithy in the city, lt
still tetains its humble appearance of
but one story, the only coronel to
which is a great electric sign that
blazes forth when thc dusk ci evening falls.
Purchased forty-one years ago for
the trivial sum of $1200, this corner
is at tlie present day worth more
than three times that sum for each
foot. There is no doubt but that it
soon will follow in tho wake of it?
neighbors and become the site of a
vast new modern structure to comitate the central siuate of the citv.
It was fn 1871 that Dr. O'Donnell,
who Is still in rrictire in the city,
toolf over this corner for the sum
above mentioned of $1200. A small
building had stoo.' there rome time
previouBly, but It had been h-rnei
dov.n and only tho stone Tonnda-t'on
w��s lemntnipp-. TMs, vi ith the Ued
River Hall, a*-building whir-h eonihin-
tA several stores and aparitnWti
was the onI> pt' itl,re a* (Kit j"'n'
cu tie east tiie or Mela st.ect.   Tur
Red River Hall covered the grounl
from the potent tlte of the Hank of
Ottawa to the Merchants' Bank.
ln 1872 Dr. O'Donnell built himself
a dwelling house on the corner, and
in the jear following he solil n piece
or the lot to the rear for |1000. The
purchaser built a small wooden shack
which is to he seen to thiB day on
the little lane that runs off Portage
avenue east to the north.
The year following in 1873, Dr
O'Donnell built another little bout)
behind his own and sold It for th��
sum or $2!>00. This houre may a's
be seen standing to thlr- diy though
not \isiblc from the street, as it fs
hid'cn behind the various offl(e buildings which front the sidewalk.
On tbis corner site Dr. O'Donnell
lived until 1X75 or 187<". when he sold
house and pro-erty and birlt a new-
house on the corner of Albert Stroet
and Notre Dame avenue, a structure
which was Otlly demolished a few-
weeks ago to make room fo; a modern office bni'ding to be erected by
the Winnipeg Electric Street Railway
Since Dr. O'Donnell parted with th?
corner of Portage and Main, ihe pioperty ha�� frequently change:! hands
and is now the property of James
Scott, real estate dealer, who Occupies one of the o.Tice?, for some time.
Mr. Scott was unwilling lo discuss
the present value of the .site, being
mereh contenl to say thai this year
the assessment on the property had
been raized $75,CO0.

Quickly Removed,
For generations Sage and Sulphur
have been uaed for hair and scalp
troublen. Almost everyone knows tho
value of such a combination for keeping
the hair n good even color, for curing
dandruff, itching Bcalp and falling hair,
and for promoting the growth of the
hair. Years afjo the only way to get
a Hair Tonic of this kind was to make
it in the home, which was troublesome
ancl not always satisfactory. Nowadays, almost any up-to-date druggist
can supply his patrons with a ready-to-
use product, skillfully prepared in perfectly equipped laboratories.
An ideal preparation of this sort
is Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur Hair
Remedy, in which Sage and Sulphur
are combined with other valuablu remedies for scalp troubles and thin, weak
hnir that is losing its color or coming
out After using this remedy for a
few days, you will notice the color
gradually coming back, your scalp will
fee! better, the dandruff will soon be
gone, anil in less than a month's time
there will bo a wonderful difference in
'your hair. G
Don't neglect your hair if it is full
of dandruff, losing its color or coming out. Get n fifty cent bottle of
Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur from your
druggist, and see what a few days'
treatment will do for you. All druggists Bell it, under guarantee that
tho money will he refunded if the
remedy is not exactly as represented.

Interesting Winter Military Expnt.
ment Made In Eastern Ontario.
Twj part ies nf ( mm .linn military rl.
fleers eiieni/ed in a novel tactirsl
exercue between Ottawa and I'rtrcott
on March 9 arid 10. 'Ire parlies were
commanded respectively by I.I.-Col,
Morrison, D.S.O.. of Ottawa, and Lt..
Col. Uuell, of Brockville. The idea
was to test the possibility <f ll'ltlg
��now��hoers as a "cavalry ��creen" tor
forces operatin" in winter.
The manoeuvre area wn* 52 miles
in lencth, and varied from Inur to
eight miles in ";h. IJaeh party nf
seven hauled it* hlanl(c'.��, cooking
utensils, and two days' ralictis nn a
toboggan. The advance was made at
8 a.m. nn March 9. [.larks were
awarded fnr thoroughness ff scouting
pn mute, keeping up lateral communication, comfort in liivouacinir, urpiit-
est penetration nf area Irom starting
point, and driving in enemy's
"screen "
The Ottawa party made 22 miles ths
first day, and Livruaeed at. 0 p.m.
under cover in dense underbrush.
Tho Brockville party advanced to
Spencerville. about 17 miles. Both
parties moved out two hours before
sunrise, and canio in contact at 8
o'clock on the morning of March 10,
with th} result thit tbe Brockville
team was defeated with tho loss of
their transport and five scouts who
were ambushed at different points on
the line, which at that portion of the
area was four and one half miles
wids. Tho Ottawa party lojt one man,
and were declared the winners.
Though the temperature was only
four below zero, tlie ride oil clogged
the mechanism of the carbines so
that in a number nf cases the weapons could neither be loaded nor fired owing to the cold. It was estimated that tlie Ottawa soldiers, who
penetrated furthest into the "enemy's" area, traveled about 40 miles
in 24 hours.
_As a Horrible Example.
Advocates both for and n2ain��t
Home Rule ior Ireland u-��e Canada
to Illustrate and support their arguments. Time and acain the great
British public is assured that fir. As-
quith's bill will place Ireland ii .is
same legislative position as Ontario
or any of the other Provinces rf the
Dominion. Rqually strong a-'-'uranroj
are given by the other side that complete autonomy such as Canada enjoys is contemplated by the Ministerialists.
Sir W. Max Aitken toll his enn-ti-
tuents the other day that tlie Government were going to base their claim
for Home Rule very largely on their
version of the experiment In Canada.
Even on this ground be predicted dis-
arder. Provincial Home Rule in the
Dominion, he said, had caused dilli-
culties and disagreements from one
end of Canada to the other by reason
ol the authority the provinces exercised from Ume to tins in opposition
! to the Federal  Government.
Of course, he finds confirmation ef
thii argument in the cases which,
niter going through th* Canadian law
court*, come beiore the Privy Council and are entered on the Cause List
as "The Attorney-General of Ontario
(or some other province) v. the At-
torney-Oeneral for Canada." But.
after all, this is a peaceful nethnd
of settling squabbles, and the ammunition of wis; and gown and calf-
bound volume Lears no relation to the
ibrapnel-swept battlefields which are
promised if an Irish Parliament ia
established  at Collage Greeu.
