VICTIM Of ACCIDENT
DIES IN HOSPITAL
Little  Known of    Edward    Connolly,
Longshoreman���Had Been Drinking Heavily.
Impressed with the importance of
Westminster and district, Hon. Frank
Cochrane, minister of railways, left
the city last evening for Victoria with
the firm determination to make another visit in the near future and Bee
into things more closely, when he
would have more time on his hands.
Since taking office with the Borden government, Mr. Cochrane has
been traveling all over the Dominion
so as to get acquainted with facts and
figures wliich are always liable to
crop up during his office as minister
of railways.
Early yesterday morning Mr. J. D.
Taylor, M. P., and Mr. A. O. Powell,
the harbor engineer, went to boat by
Eburne where they met the minister
accompanied by several representatives of Vancouver and South Vancouver. Returning via the North Arm
the party was transferred to the Senator Jansen, on which were Colonel
Davidson and several others connected with the Canadian Northern, and
under, the able guidance of Mr. Taylor, the trip was made along the waterfront, past the proposed harbor on
Annacis Island, finally landing them
at the C. P. R. wharf. From tbence
the party adjourned to a luncheon at
the Hotel Russell, where they were
joined by several civic officials together with a few officers of the B.
C. E. R.
At three o'clock the whole party
motored to the Fraser Mills where
half an hour was spent conducting Mr.
Cochrane around the big mill. Being
an old lumberman himself, he was
naturally interested in the sight, and
it was with difficulty that he was persuaded to finish the Itinerary. Oils Including a visit to Lake Coquitlam.
The trip thither was accomplished
by automobile, and Mr. Cochrane displayed groat. Interest In all the developments that are being engineered ln
this city and district, and waa amazed
at the large amount ot construction
work that Is going on. Before leaving tor Victoria last evening, Mr.
Cochrane's last words to Mr. Taylor
were, "I am well pleased with my
visit today, and can assure you that
when 1 have occasion to next visit
the coast, I shall assuredly look fur
ther into your great schemes."
The luncheon at the Russell was
of an informal character, those present being Mr. Cochrane, Mr. J. D.
Taylor. M.P.; Mr. H. H. Stevens, M.
P., for Vancouver; Mr. H. S. Clements, M. P. for Comox-Atlln; Mr. R.
C. Hodgson, chairman of the South
Vancouver Board of Trade; Councillor Armstrong, of South Vancouver;
Colonel Davidson, land agent for the
C. N. R.; Mr. T. S. Knappen. manager of the Coquitlam Terminal Company; Councillor J. F. Langan, of Coquitlam; Mr. A. D. McRae, Fraser
Mills; Messrs F. R. Glover, C. B.
Voce, Allan Purvis and G. R. G. Conway, of tbe B.C.E.R; Alderman Curtis; Mr. K. Myers, representing the
Progressive association, and Mr. G. W.
Yates, private secretary to Mr. Cochrane.
Mr. Cochrane has been travelling
since May, and is not expected to
complete his journeylngs until he vis-
Its the Hudson Bay country, returning to Ottawa by way of the coast of
Labrador.
Accidental death as the result of
injuries received beneath the wheels
of a C. P. R. train, was tbe verdict
of the coroner's jury empanelled before Dr. McQuarrie yesterday to In
quire into the circumstances of the
death of Edward Connolly, who was
injured on Wednesday evening in the
C. P. R. yards.
The evidence submitted was to the
effect that the deceased had been
drinking heavily and was evidently
wandering aimlessly about when he
chanced to step Into the path of the
locomotive in the yards. He had sustained a horribly mangled right arm
and leg and these had been amputated
by Dr. Kenny after he had been removed to the Royal Columbian hospital. .The operation, according to
the evidence of the doctor, could not
have waved the man's life, as he had
already suffered a heavy loss of
blood. He died at 7:30 yesterday
morning.
The deceased was a longshoreman
n-ho had been working about the city
for several months. Nothing is known
here regarding the whereabouts of his
relations.

Prince Katsura, of Japan, was undertaken to negotiate an alliance between the Mikado and the Kaiser, ls
asserted in diplomatic circles here today.
lt Is said that the Japanese want

The Kaiser ls reported to look

SENATORS DEBATE
PANAMA MEASURES
Opposing  Views of Senators Towns-
end and Brandagee���Blow at
Canadian Shipping.
Mr. A. W. McLeod returned the
other day from a visit to Abbotsford
and other Fraser valley points; Mr.
McLeod states that tbe shingle mill
that was burned down a few months
ago at Abbotsford fake has been rebuilt, and manufacturing has been
resumed.
Paying a visit to Cloverdale, Mr.
McLeod inspected the new government bunkers that ore being erected
there. They are now practically completed and are of the most elaborate
construction. Their exact cost Is not
available, but judging from the materials used the structures must have
required the expenditure of several
thousand dollars. They will be used
by the government for storing and
crushing rock for the Pacific highway.
Haying is now going on at full
swing on Langley prairie and judging
from the appearance of the flelds Mr.
McLeod believes that this year's crop
will break all records.
Washington, July IS.-���Railroad con
trol of the Panama canal, rights of
American ships to free tolls, and the
form of government under which the
canal management Is to be placed,
were subjects of two directly oppos
ing arguments today from Senators
Brandagee, of Connecticut, and Towns-
end, of Michigan, during the discus
aion'of the canal bill In the senate.
Senator Brandagee urged the admission of all ships to the canal at
definite toll charges with no favor to
American vessels. If railroad owned
ships abused the privileges given
them, said be, congress then should
place tbe offending line under tbe jurisdiction ot the interstate commerce
commission with power to deal with
the situation.
Senator Townsend urged legislation
to prevent the railroads'getting any
grip whatever upon the canal, declaring that astute railway managers
know that the canal will do more to
reduce railway rates from coast to
coast than all the orders of tbe commissioners combined.
Senator Townsend added that he
was an advocate of a Single headed
Reported Killed.
Reno, Nev., July 18.���Twenty lives
were reported lost tonight ln a cloudburst that wiped out the small town
of Seven Troughs, Nevada. Assistance
was Immediately rushed to the scene.
To date ten bodies have been recovered, while lt is feared that a similar
number lies burnied beneath the
masses of debris among which the
rescue party Ib new toiling.
Prom Lovelock, near Seven
Troughs, came word that four persons were known to be dead and that,
the hotel at Masuma had been turned upside down by the rush of waters.
Communication by wire was badly
crippled, and the roads were bo furrowed that automobiles were obliged
to make wide detours in seeking
news.
A special from Lovelock to the
Journal says that John Trenchard
and bis wife were both drowned at
Mazuma. Trenchard's body was found
three miles from liis home.
A cloudburst at Tonopah Junction
washed out a mile of track of    the
Nevada and California Narrow Guage
branch of the Southern Pacific.
Terrifying Scenes.
Redlands, Cal., July 18.���A terrific
rain and wind storm, accompanied by
lightning, struck Redlands late this
afternoon and tonight several sections
of the city were in darkness. The
electric wires had been torn down by
falling trees and electric circuits
burned out. Telephone and street
railway service was damaged.
Reports from tbe mountains were
to the effect that the storm there was
of the nature of a cloudburst.

Redding, Cal.. July 18.���William C
Landis, a merchant of Buckeye, was
ambushed and killed by unknown per
sons this evening .. while returning
from Redding. Inasmuch as he was
out on bail under charge of having
shot and kiHed Mrs. W. C. Bradford
near Buckeye on May 31, the authorities believe the murder was promoted
by revenge.
On thia theory tbey began their
search Immediately. Landis' bail,
whicli was deposited last week, came
to $15,000. He leaves a widow and
two children.
BOARD OE TRADE
AND WARD SYSTEM
Burnaby  President  Expresses  Astonishment���Mr.  Powell Ready to

Edmonds. July 17.���As was expected, the recent vote ot the Burnaby
council against the abolition of the
present ward system, was debated upon by the Burnaby board of trade
which held Its monthly meeting last
evening in the municipal ball.
Mr. B. G. Walker, president of the
board, opened the discussion by stating that astonishment was general
throughout the municipality at the
council's latest action in turning
down a direct mandate of the people
who favored the move. He would not
ask the board to take action as he
thought the council Would review its
decision in the near future and perhaps would come to another opinion.
He expressed .surprise tbat one of
the chief opponents of the motion to
abolish tbe ward system should have
from a councillor who was also a
member of tbe school board, a bo by
that was elected by a vote from the
whole of the voters of Burnaby.
.   Harass British  Premier
During Visit to Ireland.
Outrage    In   Theatre���Blazing   Chair
Thrown  Into Orchestra���Little
Damage.
Dublin, July 18.���The British prime-
minister was the object of a suffragette outrage during his drive to the
hotel from the quay where he landed
from the cross channel steamer this-
evening.
A woman standing among tho-
crowd hurled a hatchet in the direction of Mr. Asquith's carriage, yelling.
derisively while so doing. Tbe missile was well aimed for direction, but
fortunately fell short of the mark.
The woman was immediately arrested
and escorted to the jail, the police
being surrounded by a large crowd of
people who resented fiercely her mad
action.
A serious affair seemingly of suffragette origin occurred, however, at
the Dublin theatre where Mr. Asquith.
will speak tomorrow. During an entertainment, a blazing chair, apparently oil soaked, was thrown from a.
box into the orchestra. The curtain*
of the stage caught fire, causing panic.
No one waa hurt.
That this move also ls to he laid
at the door of the suffragettes is conclusively proved by tbe fact that two
women called this evening at the offlce of a Dublin newspaper and stated
ln a frenzied manner that tbey were
able to burn Irish theatres even if
they could not burn Irish castles.
Suffragettes chartered small boats
at Kingstown with a view of making,
a demonstration on the arrival of the
premier's boat, but wera prevented
from doing so by the vigilance of the
authorities.
Mr. Asquith received a vociferous
welcome here .tonight. On his arrival
he waa met by Augustine Birrell, chief
secretary for Ireland, the National
leaders and the mayors of Dublin,
Cork and other cities.

and pounced upon Mr. McKenna,
seizing him    by tbe   shoulders   and
MUCH UNREST IN
BRITISH CABINET
Press Debates Likelihood    of    Lloyd
George's Retirement Over Naval
Developments.
London, July IS.���That Mr. Mas-
singham's article regarding internal
trouble In the. cabinet, has created a
considerable stir Is evidenced from
the comments being made in the
daily newspapers. The Chronicle says
that some perturbation has resulted
in Liberal circles In England through
Mar. Massingham's opinion of the present state of unrest among Premier Asqulth's followers. According to Uie
Chronicle it is Incredible to believe
that Lloyd George wlll quit the cab-
net oa the ground of naval expansion
merely, for which Churchill's Mansion
House speech was mainly responsible.
The Evening News Btated that Mr.
Churchill's policy of naval expansion
ls based largely on the advice of Ad
mlral Sir John Fisher, and moreover

World's Record  with  7219
Words.
Spokane, July 18.���The world's typo
writer speed record for one hour's
continuous writing on upfamiliar cop>
was broken today by Miss Florence
E. Wilson, of New York, In the
national contests held under the auspices of the National Commercial
Teachers' Federation.
Mlss Wilson copied 7219 words ln
the hour with 68 errors. Deducting
flve words for each error this gave
her a net score of 6879, or an average
of 115 words per minute. The former
record, held by H. O. Blaisdell, of New
York, was 112 words per minute.
The amateur championship, for
operators who have operated a typewriter less than three years, was won
by Miss Bessie Friedman, of New
York, who wrote 3208 words ln 30
minutes, or an average of 107 words
per minute. This breaks the former
record held by Gus Trefsger, of New
Vork, of 98 words. .,
The school championship was won
by Mlss Wlnnlfred Bills, of Spokane
with an average of 53 words per
minute.
At a meeting this afternoon the
National Shorthand Teachers' association elected C. V. Crumley, of
Seattle, president; Mlss Hasel Worst-
wick, of Salt Lake City, vice-president; Mtsa May Power, of Chicago,
secretary, and. Mies E. M. Johnson, of

between the United States   and Oreat
Britain as permitting American ships
to pass through tbe canal without payment of tolls.
A blow was struck at Canadian
owned railroad steamships which may
ply tbrough tho Panama canal in.that
there should be double tolls charged
for their passage as against vessels
in the coastwise trade.
The bill also stipulates that such
vessels are not to be deemed as coastwise vessels and shall not be exempt
from the regulations governing other
ships.
The secretary of commerce and
labor was directed to formulate plans
for tbe issue of the proposed act.

WARSHIP SUNK
Reported Cut in Two by Collision Off
Corsica.
Paris, July 18.���Advices received
here state that the French torpedo
boat destroyer Babalier, while cruising off the coast of Corsica, was cut
In two by collision with an unnamed
vessel, and the majority of her crew
drowned.
The naval authorities state that
they have received no word of the
mishap.
This is the third recent attempt
upon the home secretary, x, ho was
attacked about a month ago in the
presence of the King and Queen at
Dandaff, while only last Friday he
himself discovered a vessel containing explosive material placed beside
a curtain in his room at bia private
house.
Mucb genuine alarm has spread
throughout the whole country concerning the anarchistlcal methods
which the suffragettes bave adopted
of late, and it appears certain that
the authorities will now use the
sternest measures to repress these
frequent outrages.
UNIQUE DEFENCE.
Hold-up Man Contends He Was
Forced to Rob.
Yesterday morning Judge Mclnnes
passed a sentence of flve years' Imprisonment with twelve .lashes on
Charles Webb, hotel porter, and paroled forger, who held up a Greek res-
turant proprietor on Powell street.
Vancouver, in the early morning of
June 12. v
The trial waa remarkable for the
unique defence offered by Webb. Edward Lewis, the complainant, had alleged that Webb had rifled his
pockets and the cash register on the
morning of the robbery, holding a revolver with which to protect his actions. Webb admitted rifling" Lewis'
pockets and the cash register, but
stated that he had been forced to do
so by a third party who held a gun

Australia rowed 42 to the minute at
the outset of the game, and Leander
40, the strength of both declining

TIME HAS COME
EOR REAL UNION
ADVENTURE ON FRASER
Supply of Oil of Picnic Party Gives
Out
At a late hour on Wednesday night,
to be accurate, at flve minutea to 11
o'clock, certain people might' have
been heard on the river about opposite Port Mann, vigorously and repeatedly reciting the parable of the
wise, aud foolish virgins to tbe skipper and owner of the launch they
were in.
It appears that Mr. J. Brooks, of
the Westminster Woodworking company, was entertaining a party of
friends Wednesday with a picnic at
Pitt lake. Everything bad been going
on greased wheels, for the day was
fine, ao was the food; the water waB
grand, so was the fishing. But, hush
���on the return trip when just off the
mouth of the Coquitlam and whilst a
flrst rate choir was entering the last
spasm Of that pathetic but popular
ditty "I Wonder Who's Kissing Her
Now," with a gasp aud a flicker the
engine aud light expired in a dead
heat, and the answer waa "I don't
know."
After the ship's carpenter had
sounded the hold he was able to report "All dry and tight, sir," but on
further enquiry the fact was forthcoming that it was the gasoline tank
he had dipped Into, and for a moment
it looked as if the mighty Fraser was
going to be subjected to one of those
furious storms that so upset boats
and people. The head of the party,
however, rose to the occasion, and
ordering the crew into the lifeboat,
directed it (the crew) to proceed to
Port Mann for a further supply of
gas Juice, which eventually being
forthcoming, allowed the partv to arrive at its destination, somewhat late,
but of cheerful countenance.

D.-...:..."en's Chare in Imperial
Policy.
London, July 18.���All journals unite
in calling Mr. Borden's speech Tueaday evening, most Important and noteworthy, and refer especially to the
opinion expressed by him that it was
not possible that the great dominions
of the empire would be called on to
take a share In the defence of the empire as a whole, without having some-,
voice in its policy. .,   -
Only three Canadian-born menibers.:
of parliament were present out of the ���
large group now in the House of Commons.   It fs  regretted  that  Mr: Asquith was unable to be present.
The Westminster Gazette, the leading government evening paper, says:
"Mr. Borden made a speech which
definitely recognizes the coming of the
new order In which the partnership of
the dominions with Great Britain at
present informal and unfettered, is
likely to be consolidated on definite-
constitutional lines. The partner must
bave a voice Mi, the policy of then flrm
wbich the ward had not in the follcy
of the trustee. Mr. Borden suggests
to us that the Imperial Parliament, as
at present constituted, does nott meet
this condition, from which we infer
that he and his friends look forward
to some development of our Institutions which will meet the difficulty.
We are glad that this idea should be
thrown out, and during the next few
years, hope to see It get into the
thought and language of the self-governing communities."        >
The Times, in summing up, says at
the end of a lengthy leader:
"The essential point is that the
British and Dominion ministers
should learn more to act together In
the whole range of affairs which concern them both. The formal ma'
chinery for common action can be'
created more easily when once tho
practice is established."
The Pall Mall Gazette, commenting
On Mr. Borden's warning, says: "The*
empire has no  organ  of  self-government   capable   of   co-ordinating   Its*
strength    and     placing    its   whole'
weight behind any untiled   policy  or-
act'.on. Without such an organ, Mn-
periallsm can never be sound, realor
effective.   Every thinking jnlnd k'nowa

mebered as a very successful one.
Cabled accounts indicate that the racing was keen, and the form displayed must have been above the average.
Moreover, only two trophies were
won by outside challengers, namely,
the Grand Challenge Cup, which was
captured by an Australian crew, and
the Thames Cup, by a French crew.
This is the fourth time in Its history
that the Grand Challenge Cup has not
fallen to an English crew, and since,
a3 Mr. Guy Nickalls points out. It Is
only when the foreign oarsmen are
supposed to be phenomenally fast that
they enter at Henley, the fact that the
British crews win so often is remarkable, for the Stewards' Cup has left the
country only once, and the Diamond
Sculls three times, once coming to
Canada. That only one tlnal was won
by a non-British crew from abroad
will be pleasing to the British waterman, who of late years has heard
much about the decadence of his country's oarsmanship.
It was in 1829 that the Henley
course came Into notice for the lirst
time through the race between Oxford
and Cambridge from Hambledon Lock
to Henley Bridge, and six years later
the same stretch of water was used
for another intcr-unlverslty race.
These races naturally drew quite a
few spectators to the town of Henley,
and the business men of the place pro
fiti d accordingly. Instead of waiting
for other races to be held. in due
course of time, they called a meeting
to consider how the oarsmen and
their admirers might best be attracted. They decided that oy giving
prizes the end might be attained, and
so subscriptions were taken up and
the Grand Challenge Cup and the
Town Challenge Cup were purchased.
In 1839 the first Henley Regeatta promoted by the town was held. Four
races were on the program, and, those
present thought they had a gocd afternoon's sport. Since then there have
been as many as 64 races tn one regatta held on the same reach.
Two yeara later the Stewards' Cup
was instituted, and has since become
the  greatest   four-oared  race  in  tlte
world.    In 1843 there   occurred what
was   probably   the   most   remarkable
race ever sen at Henley.   In the final
for the Grand Challenge Cup Oxford
and a Cambridge crew came together
Just before the men were   to   peddle
out   to   the   starting   point    Oxford's
stroke was  taken violently  sick, and I
could not row.   Oxford decided to row *
the race with seven men, and, leaving
the   bow   thwart  empty, tlie   Oxford
rowed to such good purpose that they
handsomely beat the Cambridge crew
of eight.    In 1814 the Diamond Sculls
were added.    There were eight starters,   the    winner    being    Ur.   T.  B.
I Buinpsted,   who    still    survives.   Dr
Bumpsted, is called the father of Kng
jl.sh rowing, and he was a great oars-
j linn as well as   a great   sculler, and
won many notable victories at Henley
more than uixty years ago.
According to Mr. Nickalls it is the
rule rather than exception to find
a waterman who is equally at home
wilh a pair of sculls or a single oar.
He believes that many of tlie best
scullers iu Kngland have not been
seen in single races until their prime
was past, because a club is much more
anxious to win a crew race than a
ungl" contest, and usually wants to
i.eep its best men for the pairs, fours
and eights. As a rule it is when a
man has seen his best days as un
oarsman tbat he takes up the scillinf.
branch Of tiie sport. It lias happened,
too. that the men who have made
ICUlllng a specialty at Henley have
been r.iiher Indifferent oarsmen, and
then fore, not in greal demand by
their clul).*. lu fact, this critic does
'.mi stem to have a very high opinion
of Lhe general class <if sculllug In Kng
land and says that if a fair sculler

or longer. A remarkable demonstration of this fact was made In 1808,
Kor two years previously the Belgians
had won the Grand Challenge Cup.
and It was feared that thev would repeat their success at the Henley
Olympic. They seemed to have set a
new fashion In rowing, nnd most or
thn clubs were trying to imitate the
Belgian style, but with little 8iiccosi.lt
was at this time that an appeul was
made to a number of oarsmen who
had retired to go into training again,
and step Into the breach for the sake
of English watermanship. From
among them a eight was chosen that
handsomely defeated the Belgians and
all other rivals, and since that tlmt
there has been little talk about the excellence of the Belgian style. BrHinh
oarsmanship Ib still the best 'a the
world, and the Henley Regatta of 1312
oicrely emphasizes this fact.
According to the statement of by
standers the wounded man had attempted to rob a companion, Frank
Smith by name, aud au employee of
the C. P. R. Constable O'Hara was
suspicious of the man'a movements,
and alleges that he saw him take
some money from Smith's person, after which he endeavored to arrest him.
At the approach of the-constable the
man took to his heels, and Officer
O'Hara after firing two shots in the
air fired the third shot directly at the
fleeing figure the bullet glancing from
the pavement, entering the man's
Kidneys and Inflicting a very painful
but not serious wound.
There appears to be considerable
doubt about the Identity of the wounded man, but Charles l.ee is supposed
to be- hiB correct name.
Smith, the man who was robbed,
was found to be suffering from a superficial contusion on the right side
of the head, evidently caused by a
blackjack, supposedly in the hands of
Lee.
Safe   Blown. Open.
The explosion of a charge of nitroglycerine which shattered the safe In
i the   grocery store  cf   Mr. H. Macartney, Mount Pleasant, about 2 o'clock
i this morning, awakened a lady living
(in a nearby house, and she immediate
ly called up the Fairmont police  station with the result that the burglars
were forced to make an escape before
they could remove the money ln the
safe which amounted to a very large
sum.
A search of the neighborhood was
unavailing and a couple of detectives
raced out from headquarters in an
automobile to assist the local men
Tho safe-crackers, however, got clear
away.
Burglars Busy Again.
Burglars had very little difficulty in
obtaining access to the Georgia Drug
Store and the Aiualess Millinery Store
at the corner of Georgia and Granville
streets last evening, but they became
disgusted when they bored into an
iron bar at the reBT of the Hudson's
Bay Liquor Store. Nine boxes of
cigars and a suitcase were taken from
the. Georgia Drug Store, but nothing
was taken from the millinery store.
It is believed by the police authorities here that-an organized gang of
yeggmen. safeblowers and second-
story thieves are at work ln the city.'
as the crime wave existing at the present time threatens to rival the "holdup" scares .of last Winter. The members of the light-fingered fraternity

The Vancouver department has done
spbndid work In regard to the suppression of crime during the past

a class of criminals of which they
have no records and no means of identification.

has been decided to establish a naval
college for the   Commonwealth;   and
as  a   preliminary   move   towards   Its
erection the trustees of the Australian
Dreadnought fund have collected the
sum   of   $200,000,  which   they have
given the Federal   treasurer  for   the
creation of the college.     It   is hoped
that the institution will be completed
in 1914.   As regards  its   immigration

British Immigration League which has
done good work here caring for arriving immigrants has now  decided   to

TAFT'S   CAMPAIGN   FUNDS.
Pcstmaster-General Replies to Senate
Commission.
Washington, July 18. ��� President
Taft's campaign fund of 1908, was the
subject of inquiry yesterday by the
senate committee investigating the pe
litical war chests of that campaign,
and of Alton B. Parker four years
before.
' Postmaster-General Hitchcock, who
was chairman of the Republican com-
���nittee In 1908, told the senators no
-jontribution waB received from any
corporation, and that the committee
had declined $20,000 from T. T. Cole
man Dupont of Delaware, because the
government then was attacking the
powder trust. Moreover, congress
had forbidden corporation contributions.
The total of the Republican fund
was $1,655,518, Mr. Hitchcoc'.c said
ind he reminded the senators that
those figures were disclosed in the re
oort filed In Albany In conformity
���vith the laws of New York.
Neither tlie tobacco trust nor any of
ts stockholders, tbat Mr. Hitchcock
knew of, contributed. Some stockholders of the Steel corporation and
some of the International Harvester
Company, among the latter George W.
Perkins, gave to the fund.
TO CROSS  ATLANTIC
New York, July 18.���While the police continue to declare their confidence that there would be a speedy
solution cf the problem of who shot
and killed Herman Rosenthal, the
gambler, Tuesday morning, and what
the motives were behind the murder,
the net apparent results of the day's
activities on their part was the apprehension of Bridgie Webber, an ln-
fuential East side sporting man, and
his release on small bail after he had
been questioned.
The question of whether police animosity over the recent revelation of
Rosenthal, or gamblers' vlndictivenes3
from the same cause, Inspired the
murder plot, is apparently as far as
ever from being answered.
A sensational story wa3 told by a
woman, who had gone before a judge
and testified that the automobile used
by the murderers of Rosenthal in going to the Hotel Metropole and fleeing
from the scene of tlie crime had been
seen standing from 6 to 10 o'clock that
night in front ��of the home of Police
Lieutenant Charles Becker, who had
been accused by Rosenthal of being in
partnership with hlm in the gambling
business. It waa Baid, however, that
Becker frequently used a car similar
to the one employed by the party of
murderers.
Assemblyman Levy, counsel for
Louis Libby and W. M. Shapiro, the
owners of the automobile used in the
shooting, told last night a startl.ng
3tpry. He said the prisoners had re
lated to him the part they played in
the affair. .They declared, according
to Levy, that Jack Rose, a former
partner of Rosenthal, who afterwards
quarreled with him, was the man who
hired the Libby car on the night of
the shooting.
"Shapiro told me," said Levy, "that
he had the gray car at the Cafe Boulevard stand when, shortly before midnight, Monday, Jack Rose called up
the starter and door tender to send
the car to Thirty-first and Fourteenth
���treats.
"Then Shapiro went to that point

Cape Town. July IS.���It Is reported
that a gold-SetTing quartz reef has

stated to be 30 feet high, and runs towards Signal Hill. The discoverer Is

TO   HONOR    JOAN   OF   ARC.
French People Will Now Have Two
Holidays a Year.
Paris, July 18.���It is now fairly certain the second Sunday in every May
will be celebrated as a national fete
in honor of Joan of Arc. There is no
intention, however, to do away with
the traditional July 14,��� which commemorates the taking of the Bastille,
for that would profoundly offend Republican sentiments. The Joan of Arc
movement is no new one. A vote in
the senate as far back aa 1894 approved a national holiday each year
for the Maid of Orleans. For some
reason or other the Idea was shelved
by tbe Chamber of Deputies. Then
came the Dreyfus affair and thc hostility to the army to which it gave
rise. ' The public admiration for Joan
of Arc was shorn of many of its outward manifestations and the grandiose ceremonies that have accompanied the Maid's anniversary at Orleans
for five centuries were forbidden by
the governor of the day. When Joan
of Arc was beatified by the i'ope it
began to be seen- that a magnificent
weapon has been put into the hands
of the Catholic party. It enables that
party to rally the people to a common standard, and lt gave to the
army its surety symbol. M. Miller
and, since he has been Minister of
War, has spared no efforts to restore
the military prestige and national pa-
troitism. Tho finishing touch to his
work would be, he considered, the annual glorification of Joan of Arc by all
sections of the French people, without
distinction whatever.

VOLUNTEER SAILORS.
The present visit of the tf\ S.
cruiser Marblehead to the Paciflc
coast porta' la worthy of more than
passing comment. Her complement
consists of men of the Californian
mercantile marine who have volunteered their services to show the
American government that in them
she has men who, if the occr.3;on
should ever arise, may be relied upon
to be capable of supplementing the
ranks of the regular man o' war's
men.
In the present heat, and in thr
long stretch of prosperity which lm
attended the lower mainland, we have
forgotten many of the great questions
at issue which will iffake or mar Canada as a nation, but just now our
thoughts are turned, or should be
turned to the subjects of defence and
of the navy.
If we examine our own position, and
ask ourselves why it is not possible
that the c'ties of the lower mainland
can furnish a contingent of naval volunteer sailors similar to the men of
the Marblehead, the answer is not
hard to discover. Apart altogether
from the fact that the American
Pacific coast has a larger population
than has British Columbia it is in-
disputed that., British Columbia has
no naval Volunteer force of any kind.
Have we been too busy to think about
it yet ?
The branches of the Navy League
have long deplored this state of
things, and have made efforts to im-
mouumental document in the sense
that it will be the flrst of its kind. The
commission is making the flrst grand
inquest of the commercial potentialities of the Empire, and the volume or
volumes In which the results of its labors are set down will command the
attention of many millions of people
as the sole authority on the subject.
Nor will the Interest in the mass of
fact and in the points dwelt on by the
commission be confined to citizens of
the Empire. The report will be sought
for by the enterprising business men
of the United States, of Germany, and
of other commercial nations. It is
Important, therefore, that the data relating to this country should be full
and accurate. Hence, everybody who
Jias special information or decided
Hdeas about the economic development
of this country should go to some
trouble to put it at the servloe of the
commission.���Toronto Mail.
LOCAL EXPORTER LOST
IN SALTERIE3 FIRE
C. Shinobuo, a well known local
Japanese exporter and importer, was
owner of one of the salteries that
were burned at Nanaimo a few davs
ago. Mr. Shinobuo's loss was in the
neighborhood of from" $10,000 to $12,-
000. The insurance was $4000. covered by A. W. McLeod and F. J. Hart
& Co.. of this city. If the fire had
occurred a few days earlier the loss to
the local man would probably have
been far greater as a large warehouse
stock of fish was just shipped prior
to the occurrence.

one comes across the fact that unlesa
Mr. Con Jones makes an apology to
Mr. Alex Turnbull for statements
made following the Dominion Day
game, before the 20th of July, the
commission will be compelled to act
in the matter.
Taking that for a starter, why was
not the press and the publlc made
wise to this fact before? Is it because
the commission did not think it right
to see the name of Con Jones appear
iu the papers as having been told to
make apology to Mr. Turnbull ?
Secondly, what authority had Mr.
Senkler to give out the rulings of the
commission to the Vancouver papers
without first handing the report to
the secretary of the B. C. L. A., Mr.
Fred Lynch ?
It also developed yesterday afternoon that the meeting was adjourned
from Wednesday evening to Thursday morning. Why then did the chairman give out unfinished business to
the press. To any one versed in business affairs, this is catering partially,
and it certainly looks as if the report
which appeared in the Vancouver papers yesterday morning, were the demands that the chairman put before
the Westminster, commissioner, Mr.
.lardine. for ht#"acceptance.
-V Thirdly, why was Ions let off,with a
line of $10 for using foul language to
one of the timekeepers when for a
like offence, Harry Hyland, Tommy
Gifford and George Rennie have been
suspended for a game?
Where does justice appear? As't
the fans. '--"? "   \
This player Ions has tihen ruled off
the field no less than seven t'mes this
season, once for the rest of tae game
following Insulting remarks to Referee Turnbull. His total time on the
penalty bench figures out over an houi
for the seven games played, and ir
only one of them has he managed tc
go right through without drawing r
check. For Insulting Referee Turn
bull Mr. Ions was handed a fine of $26
from Commissioner Senkler while the
latter waB ruling the game alone, although In the report of Mr. Turnbull
that official recommended that Ionp
be suspended one month. "Again is
this justice?" ask the fans.
The three commissioners were appointed by the executives of the two
teams to act in the role of Judges.
Does a judge in the courts make remarks regarding a case before the
same is tried? Not as you know about
it, but Mr. Senkler Is sa'd to have
given out for publication, the day following the game of July 13 that in his
opinion, Mr. Joe Reynolds Is the most
efficient -referee In British Columbia
today or words to that effect.
Last, but not least/what grudge ha?
Mr. Senkler against Alex Turnbull, so
that the latter was passed up as ref
eree In the coming game, and In his
place Mr, Bert Halstead appointed, as
slated by H. P. Latham as judgo of
play?
The Vancouver commissioner Is
certalnlv in wrong with the citizens
of the Royal City, and if he has any
excuses to make as to his dominating
rulings, it is certainly up to him tc
come out with a statement.
lt is only a matter of ttfo week?
ago since Chairman Senkler, speaklnp
to a prominent member ot the West
minster executive, said: "I regarc
Alex. Turnbull as one of the hest
officials in the game today and he.
working with Mr. Latham, could not
be bettered." Why does the change
of front come ho soon, Mr. Senkler ?

Following the successful conclusion
of a recent game when the local |

the ball bug at Ryall's store ' has
been working overtime with th<a result that a contest between the

the only conclusion. Managers Chockley, Maiden and Graham, of the city
league, together with the one and
only Herb, held a meeting last evening and selected the following players
who will represent Westminster:
Chaput, ss; Chrlstianson, lb; Bay, 2b;
Bottolp, cf; Winbladt, lf; Jameson,
rf; Manson, 3b; Dwyer, c; Horn, p.

V. A. Cs, starting at 2:20 sharp,
while at 4 o'clock the ball game will
begin. One price of admission will

athletics can rest assured of a good
card without going out of the city. As
Herb Ryall aptly puts It "Support the

Bowliug of the highest class was
pulled off on the local alleys last
evening when the Westminsters trimmed the Shamrocks No. 1 two games
out of three. The locals took the first
with 18 pins to spare, only to lose
the second by 20. The third game
saw the classy stuff dished out, three
of the locals hitting the 500 mark,
and Sloan with 492. Winquest appeared to be way off form and only
average 138. It is rumored that
Captain Dill will drop his colleague in
the next session with orders to undergo special training. Auld took the
high single with 240, but two of the
locals, Mills and Dill, beaded him
close with 233 and 231, respectively.

Although defeated to the tune of
5-3 the Reginas put up a game fight
last evening against the Sappertons,
and never gave up the struggle until
the last while bad blown. It was
a nip and tuck contest for the first
two quarters and not until then, did
the Sappertons disclose any superiority in play.
Huff started the scoring for the Reginas at the opening, but very few
minutes had gone by before J. Chambers slammed an equalizer past
Fleury, followed by one from the stick
of Coutts. Both teams were In fine
condition throughout the game and
some fine mid-field plays were pulled
off for the edification of the crowd.
Fleury, who ls said to have played
for the Young Torontos, the twelve
that lost the Mann Cup to the V.A.C1
last year, was In goal for the Reginas
and time and time again he got a
hand out from the crowd for his stellar work between the posts.
Bert Johnston appeared at his best
and was in the thick of the fight
throughout, scoring, two of the goals
for Sapperton.   -
With the score standing 3-2 in the
third quarter, Hugh Stoddard crept
down the field, and taking a fine pass,
scored the second goal for the East
Knds. J. Chambers and Johnston
shoved through two more in the last
period, and as a dying spasm, Eastman, for the Reginas came through
with a third.
The game throughout, was excep-.
tionally clean, and Referee Gregory
had but little to do except to face off
the ball.
The present standingyet the clubs
places Sapperton well In the lead
but the West Ends stlM* have a chance
to even up with them if they win
their game against East Burnaby next
Thursday., nlghtr
Tbe line-up of the Sappertons is as
fpjlows: Coulson, goal; McKenzie,

GAMPDEN'S SHAVE.
An Explanation That Was
Tardy, but Satisfactory.
By FRANK POWNALL.
"Surely you are not going to break
our engagement just been use I shuved
JIT my mustache?" pleaded Cnmpdec.
'Thut Isn't Just fair, you know. 1 can
grow one again in a few weeks. Don't
ipoil n lifetime."
"It's not so mucb the loss of tbe
[���mustache." snid Mabel Devaut   "You
ihould kuow wbat I mean, tbougb of
course you  wlll pretend to be Ignorant.   1 hale duplicity."
" 'Oil. what a tangled web wc
weave!" " be quoted. "Vou don't mind
telling tne what particular sin you have
found out lo iue, do you? I admit Ihnt
I did buy some candy for Miss Travels.
if that's wbat you are making all Ibis
talk about. I might add in self defense that It's the littlest Mlss Travers:
(he's flve, I believe."
"lf you are going to Indulge In sucb
brutal Joking 1 shall say nothing further," said Miss Devaut haughtily. "1
have been singularly patient, lf you
only had confessed I should have bad
oo more to ssy. As It Is. I can sec
nothing In your conduct for whicb I
can find tbe slightest excuse."
"But see bere, Mnb," be explained.
"I haven't beeu doing anything. I
haven't murdered a man for at least a
week, and my last bank robbery Is
two months buck. I feel that 1 have a
clean slale so far as Ibis last unhappy
week ls concerned, aud yet you come
back from town and want me to confess to a calendar of crimes on the
argument that u good husband should
tell his wife everything. I dou'l admit
tbat argument, but all the same lf
you'll give me a clew to (liu sort of
crime you wapt me to confess to I'll
try lo think up something."
Mabel turned.on ber beel aad walked
off. it was not a very straight nor
steady tread, but sbe held her head
high and tried to keep back the tears
until she reached her room. She succeeded until the elevator left ber at
her floor: tben she ran dowu Ihe corridor, tbe picture of woe.
When she finally recovered her composure nnd weut down lo dinner Ihere
was DO Harry C'umpden waiting "for
her In the hall. Instead she ran Into
Nettle Km den.
"1 think it's a shame!" began Miss
Braden. "That awful man packed up
his tilings and went to town on the
afternoon Irulu."
"Uarf.vV" usked Mlsa Devaut com-
|irehewlingly.
Miss linden nodded.
"Wil bout ered u goodby," she admitted. "1 think UV Just too terrible.
Come lu and buve dinner und forget
that such a horrid man ever lived."
"I don't feel hungry." declared Mabel, blinking back Ihe I ears uud seek
lng ber room for the tiecoud lime.
The next few days were us miser
able for her as they were for Cunipdeo
up in town, lie uud Mabel were to
have been married lu Oclolier. and
while lie puzzled bis brsln for some ex
{iluuntlon of the mystery she look refuge In n woman's comfort nnd went
about the beucb wltb an ever read}
handkerchief.
The Harrises were giving a bouse
parly through September, and Mabel
accepted tbeir Imitation because sbe
knew Ihat they were uot ncquslnlrd
wltb Harry and Unit there she would
be safe. Por the Ill's! lime since lhe
break she felt happy an sho came
dawn (he stairs tbe morning ufter her
ariTlal.
'I be boat bod beeu becalmed, and
she bad arrived Inte. but the fresh
morning air was a temptation, and
.she ran down the stairs Just ns the
fcorvnuts were opening the bouse.
Out on the piazza she paused n ino
ment lo observe a blue coated back,
tben she lull a need with uu air ot carelessness and mnde tor tbe opposlle end
of the porch.
At lhe soutn) if the steps the man
sprang up, nnd slip guve a scream us
she rei iignlzcd Caiiipdeii.
' I did uot know ihat vou were lo
come." he begun ns he lipproili'bed her.
"I just met the Harrises and wns nut
aware (hat Ihey knew you."
"Tliey ale very old lllends," she said
coldly. "1 used lo go lo college Willi
Mrs. Harris"
"That's nlce."sbi' observed conventionally "Hut see Here. Mali. If we are
going to lie lellow uuesls for a few
<lii.vi��. won't yon please lell me what all
lhe row was nboutV"
"Vou should know," sbe said severely.
"I should,'' he eunfessed. "but I don't.
All I know Is that yuu ran up lo town
for n week.   When yon came buck to
the bench yuu usked me to confess my
tins, uud when I said I hud nothing tu
joufess excepl  Hit? self evldent'facl
hut 1 bad shaved off my mustache you
nude ilint tbe excuse for breaking the
'ngngemeht."
Kor n  moment Mabel pi)inert; then
eslre for lhe truth overcame her re-
erve.   "l wanted to.see If1 you would
���II   me   the  truth."   sbe   explained.
When I went awny you promised tu
tell me If you bnd misbehaved.    Vou
gut Iuto some lovemaklng scrape and
uever told me a word about It."
"Ho that's.It. la ll?" be asked. "Ton
want to know wby I kissed Beth Con*
now on the platan."
"I see you realise at last wbat the
offense waa."
"I did not know until Just tbla moment tbat you knew Nettle Braden.
Nhe nnd Mrs. Bsrria were schoolmates.
So were .vou. You must all (tare known
each otber. Mlss Braden was a west
ern girl, and I never supposed you hat]
met her."
"1 dou't see wbere Mlss Braden figures In this story." she said severely.
"I believe lt concerns Miss Connors."
"Nettle Braden is tbe heroine." be
explained. "The Connors person Is just
the vlllalness.   Promise never to tell?"
"No;.I shall mnke uo promise."
"Very well," he snld. --"if you don't
care, tbut puts ihings In a different
light."
"Please go on," said Mabel penitently. "You kuow I care.  I sball not tell."
"You know Mlss Braden came the
duy after you came up to town?" be
begun, leaning comfortably against the
railing. "Sbe was awfully In love with
Dick Harrington I used to chum with
Dick a little when 1 was out west, aud
1 sort of pilled him. Miss Braden wus
awfully Jealous nnd so lovey dovey that
the whole piazza wus laughing.
"You know wbui a little mischief that
Connors girl Is? Well, tbe nlgbt of the
bop she ran Into Dick on tbe piazza
just alongside of an open window, .lust
because sbe kuew tbat Mlss Braden
was on the other side of the window
she kissed him wilh a smack thnt
Could be beard a block away.
"DICk saw tbat she saw; but, like tbe
wise boy be Is, he never let ou. Instead he bunted me up and got me to
go upstairs and shave. We looked so
much alike that wben Mlss Braden nccused hlm of flirting be blamed It on
me. It would never do to tell ber I hut
it was all done out of devilment, you
know, Just because she had been so
mushy. She never would believe that
I thought you never would tind out   1
DECATUR'S   DUEL.
Tha Meeting With Barren Thst Ended
the Brave Commodore'e Lite.
The practice of dueling. Inherited
from Kngland. led to some tragic
events in early American history. Oue
Jt these resulted In the death of one of
our early uuvul heroes. Commodore
Stephen Heeatiir. Ue had gained distinction In tbe Trlpolltan war. In tbe
war of 1812 uud stood very blgb ln
popular esteem.
Another naval oflicer of tbe period
was Commodore Kurrou. wbo commanded lbe Chesapeake In Ibe light
wltb lbe British frigate Leopard.
Wblle In command of Ihe Chesapeake
be was charged wltb neglect of duty,
was tried by a court martial, on wbicb
Decatur served, and was found guilty
and suspended from tbe servica
Later wben be applied for restoration Decatur declined to approve It, and
lut of this grew a correspondence culminating In s duel, ln one of ills letters Decatur suid. "Between you snd
myself tbere has never been a persouul
intimity, but I have entertained and
lo still entertain the opinion that your
conduct as an officer of the Chesapeake
bas been such as ougbt to forever bar
your readmlssion to Ibe service."
Barron sent a challenge, wbicb Decatur accepted, and (he duel took place at
Bladensburg. neai Washington. March
22, 18L��0. They fought with pistols at
elgbt paces, and both tired and fell
together. Decatur apparently killed,
but be soon revived euougb to say a
few friendly words to bis antagonist,
wbo also lay ou the ground. Both
were removed to Washington, where
Decatur died tbat nlgbt. but Barron
bet sbe knew of our engagement uud
sat right down to write you. Did she?" j recovered and lived till 1851.
Mubel nodded. "She thought sbe
was doing u kindness," sbe defended.
"You see, she knew we were enguged."'
