CHARGED GRAFT
AND IS KILLED
New  York   Gambler   Shot
Down Before He Conld

Feared  Police   Reprisals  More  Than

Alleged Confession.
New York, July 16.���Herman Ros
entbal, a gambler, whose charge of
graft against officials of the New
York police department brought about
a thorough investigation into the
workings of tbe department, was shot
and killed this morning at West Forty-third street, almost In front of the
Metropole Hotel.
Rosenthal was murdered only a few
houra before he was to appear before
District Attorney Wltman to give further statements in an effort to substantiate the police grafting  charges.-
Within three hours after the murder, detectives visited a garage on
Washington Square, known to the police as the headquarters of taxicab
robbers, who recently robbed bank
Messengers of $25,000, and captured
a man describing himself as Louis
Libby whom tbey made a prisoner on
the charge of homicide. The police
also recovered an auto they say was
the one that figured in the murder.
Deputy Commissioner Dougherty asserted tbat eye-witnesses to the murder of Rosenthal identified Libby as
one of the quintette wbo drove up ln
front of the hotel, and, calling the
gambler from the lobby to the sidewalk shot him down and then fled In
the motor car.
,   Charged  Lieutenant.
Rosenthal waB the proprietor ot a
gambling house and two days ago applied for warrants for two leading
members of -the police department

Today the first fleld company,
Baden-Powell boy scouts ot this city,
over 40 strong, laden with kits accoutrements, aud supplies sufficient
for their twelve days' annual camp,
leave on the noon train for Crescent
beach, just half an hour's ride from
the heart of the city. Here they will
detrain and march to camp at Blackie
Spit.
Yesterday an advance party under
tbe command of Scoutmaster R. P.
Day, went down to the beach to pitch
the tents and make ready for the
main body which follows today.
The event Is a fitting celebration
of the anniversary of the organization of tbe company when less than
20 boys made up the nucleus ut the
present Corps. Now over 60 names
are on the roll,' while Scoutmasters
George Trapp, W. M.' Chapman, F. J.
Simpson aud R. P. Day are required
to guide Uk destinies.
The funds for this year's camp
were provided mainly by the Westminster Dramatic society who held a
very successful and popular entertainment a short time ago for this purpose.
The tents and kltbags were donated
by Messrs. Lees Limited, while each
of the boys contributes 50 cents per
day toward defraying the expenses
of rations.

Alleged Confession
New York, July 16.���Through the
alleged confession of a man under arrest the police are believed to have
possessions of the names of seven
men suspected of having participated
in the sensational killing today of
Herman Rosenthal, the gambler, just
as he was. presumably, about to make
important additions to his recent disclosures of alleged 'partnership beej
tween police officials and members of
tbe gambling fraternity. Additional
arrests ave momentarily expected.
The police have not named the alleged confessor. Three men were arrested today In connection with the
murder of Rosenthal. Louis Libby,
part owner, It Is alleged, of the automobile containing the party of men
who -shot the gambler, was oue of
the trio.
The police say they are assured*he
was the driver of the motor car, and
have charged him with homicide. His
partner ln ownership of a garage,
William Shapiro. Is another prisoner,
held as a* material witness. So Is a
man whose Identity the police hide
under the name of "John Doe," who
waa said to have been near the scene
of. the shooting.
Feared Police.
Instead of. fearing harm at tbe
hands of the gambling fraternity,
Rosenthal's chief dread, it ls said,
wts police eneinity because of his
charges asainst a tnembef of the
force.
"The police will 'get' me because
they have a system of always putting
Important witnesses out of the way."
Rosenthal Is alleged to Dave said.

FENIAN   VETERANS.
Western   Canada   Power   Company's
Plans Affecting  Westminster
and Burnaby.     -   .
Work on the Vancouver-Mission
electric railway, the proposed form of
which was held up in the Dominion
parliament some months ago by Mr.
J. D. Taylor, M. P., until such time a",
the plans should be satisfactory to
this city, will be started some time
this fall. Thia statement was made
by Mr. Wm. McNeill, vice-president of
the Western Canada Pother Co., the
company which Is at the back cf tbe
new  road.
Mr. McNeill was a guest of the
Burnaby councll at its celebration at
Central Park yesterday, and was called upon by Reeve Weart to speak a
few words In the Interests of the people of North Burnaby.. According to
Mr. McNeill, the matter now rests
with the provincial government concerning a bridge over the Pitt river.
He said that a conference would be
field with Sir Richard McBride within
the next thirty days, when he hoped
that satisfactory arrangements would
be made with the provincial authorities so tbat a bridge will be built to
conform with the proposed line.
This news will he welcome to the
citizens of the Royal City,   as   they
have a statement from the company!
that at no time did they ever attempt
to pass up New Westminster.
At the present time the district of
North Burnaby is practically without
any transportation connection with
Vancouver or New Westminster, and
it is thought tbat with an early start
being made on the new line, the recent agitation for a separate municipality ao that v. franchise can be given tbe V. C. K. It, wlll be dropped.
Th "turnaby corporation at the present .i ne i.s Widening the Johnston
road from 66 feet to 99 feet, the expense of which wlll fall on the Western Canada Power Co. These circumstances are construed to mean that

to construct the Hue within a certain
area and ali hough they do not specify the actual streets to be traversed.

Hundred and Fifty Are Off to
Victoria en Princess
Royal.
Everything is in readiness for today's picnic to Victoria, and judging
from the outlook up to an early hour
this morning, the affair promises to
be one of the best of its kind ever
held ln the history of the Royal CRy.
The steamer Princess Royal, which
will convey the citizens to Victoria
arrived in, port yesterday evening
and up till late the crew were busy
preparing for the great crowd of enthusiastic residents who will journey
to the capital.
Every ticket available for the excursion was sold out early yesterday
afternoon, and net a few latecomer.?
were disappointed'At being unable to
get the necessary pass tb make tlie
trip. The; demand for the cardboards
passed the most sanguine expectation
of the committee ln charge of the arrangements, and the manner in which
they wer.8 grabbed np from the moment they were' put on sale demonstrates tbe fact that the citizens al
large have entered heart and soul into the affair.
Over 750 people will make the trip,
and to ensure that everything goes
off all right, Mr. J. S. Schofield, assistant passenger agent of the C. P.
R. at Vancouver, will be on board
and wlll adopt for the day the role
of general superintendent.
The Princess Royal leaves the new
Canadian Pacific dock at 7 o'clock,
and there is no doubt that all of the
excursionists will be on board at that
time. Despite the early hour a large
crowd of citizens wbo are unable to
make the trip propose to be down at
the wl\ftrf to give their friends and
relative* a hearty send-off.
llie boat will be decked from stem
to stern In bunting aad flags, which
following the rule of the sea, will be
removed soon after the boat leaves
port but will be replaced as the ship
enters the inner harbor of the Island
City.
Perhaps the most enjoyable part of
the day's proceedings will be the trip
down thc Fraser river and out into
the Gulf of Georgia. Shortly after
leaving the city the oitizfcns will be
able to view for themselves the place

In view of the fact that many of
the leading places of business will be
closed today on account of the citizens picnic to Victoria, the majority
of stores, restaurants, barber shops
and other places were open until ID
o'clock last nlgbt for the aecommoda
tion of their patrons.
All the shops wpre brilliantly light
ed and .the large number of people
moving to and fro throughout the
main streets with their ^^^^
gave the city a decidedly Saturday
night appearance. The cars carried
more tban their usual week night
quota of passengers and large numbers of people also patronized the
theatres and the "Movies."
In Edmonds the Saturday, nigh'
spirit was also very much in evidence
and the thriving business centres ol
the neighboring municipality were
thronged with people to a late hour.

citizens flocked to the park to take

and adequate water supply. The
South Vancouver band; was on hand
discoursing music to tbe crowd long
before the official party arrived on
jthe scene from North Burnaby, where
the large valves were opened and
water sent through the mains to the
Central Park and the Kdmonds districts.
Promptly at 1 o'clock representatives of Burnaby, and her sister
municipalities, left the City hall, Vancouver, for Vaucouver Heights where
was lu progress the laying ot tbe
large mains'from the Seymour creek
supply to tbe Burnaby mains. An inspection of the temporary pumping
station near Capitol HiM was then
made, and there a toast waB drunk

Reeve Explains.
Reeve, -Weart explained the waterworks system to the    large    crowd
gathered around the bandstand.
"Several years ago Burnaby acquired for a nominal sum a water record of 250 miner's inches on Seymour creek," he said. "Nothing was
done in the matter until the council
in 1911 took up the question of providing Burnaby with an adequate supply of water, and entered into negotiations with the city *of Vancouver
whereby that city, in return for the
250 miner's inches and $7000 annually,
would deliver the equivalent to '250
miner's inches on the south. Bide of
the Second Narrows,
"The people voted on the waterworks by-law In 1911 for $350,600 and
this passed by a large majority. Contracts were let fnr the flrst 46 miles
of pipe, and In the short space of 11
months the entire first unit was completed. Added to this 46 miles is the
Edmonds system of flve miles, and
also one ln North Burnaby of six
miles.
Enough and to Spare.
"At the present time," went on tbe
reeve, "there are over 1000 connections to the system, tbe consumers
being charged $10 per year. The aum
realized from this is ample to cover
the $7500 paid to yancouver and $3000
for maintenance fees; And should
there be .2000 consumers connected
on tbe mains. Burnaby will then bi
able to sell tts water P>r $6 per year "  ,
The reeve evoked mucb applause
when he' stated that ns soon' as the
large mains, were laid across the
Narrows, Burnaby v^ould have not
only suffie'ent wajer for her people,
but would be>te ��.position to soil an
unlimited quantity to South Vancouver and Pert Moody, who ate clamon

THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE.
With the Increased Representation It
Will Have 532 Votes.
Under the new apportionment of representatives ln congress aud with tts
admission of New Mexico nml Arlzoua
the Electoral college wlll be reconstituted and a new busis established fot
representation at the natioual conven
tlons.
Euch state hns as many electoral
votes as It has senators nud representatives. In 1009-tbere were -ts:; members of the Electoral college. Nei't
year tliere will lie 532. So 2U7.votes
wlll be necessary to elect.
Confusion has arisen In some of tbe
tables of electoral votes heretofore,!
published, whicli wrongly give the total as 531. The mistake lias arisen on
the assumption tbnt New Mexico bud
onl.v one representative la congress,
whereas it has two.
The Republicans and Democrats
buve buses of representation tu their
conventions thnt differ slightly. Both
parties admit twice us muny delegates
from eacb slate as it hus senators und
representatives, So the states will be
represented both ut Chicago and Baltimore with LOW delegates. Tbe difference arises lu llie territorial representation.
Tbe Republicans admit six delegates
from natroU and two em-h from
Alaska, District of Columbia. Porto
Rico and ihe Philippines, thus making
ll total of MI'S delegates.
The Dcinoirats admit six delegates
from each of those tive divisions, milking u total of I.OIM.

London, July 16.���The first day of
the National Insurance Act ha3 been
inauspicious. One thousand dock laborers in Liverpool and 20,000 at Birkenhead, have gone on strike, refusing to have the    tax   deducted    from
their pay.
Shipping at the two ports Is virtually at a standstill and indications are
that the deadlock wlll continue until
soure change satisfactory to the men
is made in the rules. Under the
clearing house scheme at present in
force, the men deposited their cards
at the clearing house and the contribution payable under the Insurance
Act by the firms employing them, are
duly apportioned there, the men receiving their wages, minus the deduction.
The large employers are unanimously in favor cf the clearing house
scheme and threaten a general lockout unless the men comply with lt.
In London, too, the act is meeting
with great opposition. A copy was
burned in oil yesterday amid the acclamations of thousands, at a protest
meeting held in Flnsbury circus in
the heart of London'.! business district.
It Is estimated that a million and a
half stamps were licked ln London
yesterday and that by tonight tour
million will havo been licked. This
coincides with the hottest day In the
year, the mercury reaching Si in .the
shade and 122 in the sun, with no relief in sight. The humorists are having a great time drawing attention

Mr. David Lloyd-George, Chancellor
of the exchequer, was a witness in the
Lambeth police court yesterday
against Charles Gray, the man who attacked Mr. Lloyd-George at a meet-

The chancellor testified that Gray
had a bag of flour in his hands when
he rushed from behind tbe scenes to
call tbe speaker a scoundrel. Gray
caught the witness by the coat and
threw him to floor. Mr. Lloyd-George
said he Intervened to prevent spectators from" manhandling Gray. The

Senator   Root   Declares   That   Hague
Court Will Decide���Equal Treatment.
Washington. July 16.���Great Britain's protest that the United StateB
bas no right under the Hay-Pauncefote treaty to pass its own coastwise
vessels free through the Panama
Canal, while it collects tolls from
Britisli and other foreign ships, found
emphatic support yesterday in the
senate.
Opening the fight over the Panama
Canal Bill, sent to the senate by the
house, ln which the free provision is
an Important feature, Senators Burton of Ohio, and Root of New York,
outlined the ground upon which the
enemies of free American ships wlll
fight their battle.
Both Senators said Great Britain
had surrendered Important rights at
Panama, held under the former Clay.
ton-Bulwer treaty, for the pledge ol
"equal treatment" to all ships, given
by the.United States in the existing
Hay-Pauncefote treaty. The controversy hinges on the question whether
the United States, in its pledge tc
treat the "ships of all nations" equally, meant to Include vessels owned by
its own citizens.
Senator Root, former secretary of
state, unreservedly declared that The
Hague court would be called upon to
settle Issue finally, lf the United
States passed the bill with the free
provision which hc characterized as
"unjustifiable discrimination" against
other nations. A decision against the
United States by The Hqgue court, he
said, would undoubtedly Involve thi.i
country in the repayment of millions
of dollars to the owners of foreign
������hips, which might have been taken
in as canal tolls.

Australia   Makes   Better   Bidding  for
Emigrants Than Canada.
Montreal. July 16.���That emigration from Great Britain to Australia
was rapidly gaining on emigration to
Canada from the mother country and
that this could be to a certa'n extent
attributed to the tact that th* Immfc-
t;ratiqn pollcy ot Canada was eonftn-
ed largely to certain classes, was the
opinion given today by G McBrown,
Karopean trafTic manager of the Canadian Pacific railway, who is at pres- j
ent in Montreal.
Mr. Brown declares that the trouble
with Canadian emmigraticn is that
the government is confined largely to
the agricultural and domestic servant!
class, whereas there are also any
amount cf fine English people anxious to enter the country. They receive more encouragement from Australia and other colonies than they
do from Canada and are consequently
lost to the Dominion.
I Speaking of emigration from Great
Britain carried on the Canadian Pacific Railway line, he stated that the
campaign being carried on by Ontario In that country Is resulting In
greatly increasing emigration to the
province, while the maritime provinces' campaign is producing successful results in attracting settlers to
New Brunswick.
The great bulk of emigration from
Great Britain, Is of course, to the
western provinces.
He alao said tbat In the exhibits in
the various big shows In the Old
Country, which were great advertisements for the colonies, Canada was
far behind Australia, both in the size
md the attractiveness of Its exhibits.

"During eighteen months hls sole
employment was bunting Indians to
work in the robber groves. Many
Indians were caught men, women and
children. They were tied up and
brought Into the station.
"Any that refused to come were
killed. He has seen so many killed
there that he oan not remember all of
them. He has seen meu, women and
children killed for no reason except
that they would not work for the rubber company.
"Some were shot, some beheaded.
He has seen women and children beheaded and babies taken from their
mothers and thrown away alive.
"Ashed lo explain this phrase, he
says that some times when mothers
were killed, they threw the babe away
to die. At other times they would
smash their heads against the trees
or throw them Into the river. These
crimes were committed generally by
the Indian boys acting under the order of the chief."
"We made expeditions with guns,
to hunt Indians like hunting wild
beast V said another witness. "One expedition set out from Moreda and at
the first Indian house recalled In the
forest caught eight Indians, five men
and three women. They were all tied
up with ropes, their bands tied behind

caught five Indians, two men and
three women. Vasquez, who was in
charge, ordered one of the boys to
cut the women's heads ofT. He ordered this for no apparent reason���simply because he was ln command.and
could do what he liked. The boy cut
the women's heads off. He held them
by the hair of the head and flinging
their hair down, hacked their heads
off with a machete. It took more
than one blow to sever the heads���
three or four blows."

Initial session here. There are eleven

two or three may be postponed.
It ls not likely that Fort William interests will Insist on the board malting a ruling on the anti-free storage

the inter-state commerce commissioners state they have delayed application similar to that which was made
by Duluth to permit the free storage
of goods and merchandise at that
point.

and the whole proposition Is closely
allied with the alleged discrimination
of the railroads against the Twin Cities and far western cities.
Montreal, July 16.���That the question of rates through the Panama
Canal has little If any Interest to Canadian railways, was the rather surprising view expressed by Mr. E. J.
Chamberlin, president of the G. T. R.
on his return from a visit to Winnipeg, where he has been installing his
successor ln the office of general manager of the G. T. P.
"I don't think the Canadian railways have had anything to do with
the protest made by the British government against discriminatory rates
through the Panama Canal in favor of
the American ships," he said, "because In my orinlon very little Canadian traffic wiil go by that route."
Mr. Chamberlin was reminded that
the late Mr. Hays had' used as one of
the great arguments for the building
of the Grand Trunk Paciflc the neces*
sity of another road through tq the
Paciflc Coast to  carry out' the grain
In this application Fort William andf^Weh would be attracted that way by

LANCASTER    BILL.
Privy Council Take Up  Case on Monday   Next.
London, July 16.���The Privy Council has decided to take up the appeal
lrom the Supreme Court of Canada
on the Lancaster Marriage Bill on
July 22. In his application for leave
to appeal Hon. C. J. Doherty recited
in minute detail the various steps
leading up to the application. Tbe
subject matter had, he said, given rise
to very considerable agitation, while
a gocd deal of strong feeling had been
generated by the fact that the
validity ol marriages, at all events
between Protectants and Roman Catholics, was dependent upon the ceremony being performed before a Roman Catholic priest.
Certain portions of the Canadian
community, continued tbe minister of
Justice, regarded this as constituting
a very serious evil. The Government
of Canada realized fully the importance of the matters Involved, and tbe
general desire tbat they should be
finally settled by the Judgment of tbe
highest tribunal in the realm. It was
Incumbent upon the government to
ask the Privy Council for leave to appeal.
Lord Haldane replied that their
lordships considered the case as ob
viously of very great constitutional
Importance, and presumed that Mr.
Doherty required a special sitting
of the Privy Council.
The Hon. C. J. Doherty:    "We have
a very earnest desire that the case be \
heard this summer."
lx>rd Haldane: "In that case we
wlll endeavor to make special arrangements."
the Panama Canal. ^^^^^^^^^
"Of course," said Mr. Chamberlin,
"nobody knows yet what effect the
canal will have on Canadian traffic.
And nobody will know until the whole
thing bas been tested. But ray belief
is that very little Canadian traffic will
go that way. The life blood Of the
Canadian Pacific is the traffic east
and west, and it will be the same with
the Grand Trunk Pacific. I don't
think the people in the east need fear
the Panama Canal a bit, because I believe the traffic as far as we are concerned, will continue to follow the
present routes."
Asked if the G. T. P. had ever contemplated running a line of steamers
from Prince Rupert to Europe via the
Panama canal, Mr. Chamberlin replied in the negative, adding that he
did not believe any other Canadian
railway had contemplated such a
move either.
As regards tbe transporation of
grain he remarked that the whole of
the Canadian crop last year would
have to been dried before it could be
transported by such a hot route as
the Panama Canal, where the temperature was as high as 120 in the shade.

Tacoma, July 16.���To dig for buried treasures on deserted Cocos Island, Captain Fred Hackett tn the old
American barque Hesner. has sailed

the one true chart wbich will lead
bim to the buried riches of Cocos Islands, off the coast of Panama, where
untold treasures of gold and Jewels

ago.
Captain Hackett' Invested his savings Of a lifetime In purchasing the
Hesper and outfitting her with a hydraulic plant with which to wash
away the sands and recorer the buried treasures. Hls crew consists of
his mate and seven sailors.
The story of the Cocos Island
treasure Is that during the war between Chili and Pern in 1865 the city
of Lima was beselged by the army
and warships ot Chili. Believing the
city about to fall the Peruvian authorities loaded on the Nova Scotia
barque, "Mary Die," the government's
treasure. The "Mary Die" Bet sail at
night and was pursued at daylight bv
a Chilian cruiser which almost over-
. hauled her off Panama.
Protected by a hurricane which beset both vessels, the Mary Die enter
ed a sheltered bay on Cocos Island,
where the treasure waa burled. Only
A rough chart of the spat was made
while some of the sailors made rude
maps of their own. Next day sailing
from tbere, the barque was overtaken
by the Chilean craft and sunk, only
one suitor escaping, Tbe sailor's map,

'It appears* very proba^le,^at hefore
'the next meeting of the B. C. lacrosse
commission a protest will be handed
in from the Westminster executive
against what they claim waa unfair
reiereeing op the part of Mr. Joe Reynolds  in  last Saturday's game.
Yesterday, a strong delegation of
prominent citizens, persons wbo have
watched the game grow In the "Koyal
City, waited, upon Manager Gray and
his associates who are handling the
affairs of the local club, and urged
ihem to protest the game before the
commission.
It is understood that reliable Information has been gathered together
which, if preseuted to the ruling body
handling the game in British Columbia, will result In the commissioners
ordering the game to be replayed.
The meeting of the commissioners,
which is scheduled for Thursday afternoon, Is awaited with interest by
the thousands of fans not only In
New Westminster, but .In Vancouver,
all of whom have no desire to see
the national game degenerate into
such a farce as that which took
place last Saturday.

MEMORABLE GAME

There was a big kick in the Maple

the 5-3 result of   the   ball'   contest

game jo what yvere termed by the
ff��M'*l .tbe^gftoidstandf ffertl*)1 d^clfe
Ions by the umpires.
The trouble started before tb$ iame
commenced, when Manager Oraham,
of the Moose, protested the gahie
on account of the Leafs playing a
catcher flamed Follman, who, lt was
claimed /by them, waa a regular player fer the Balmorals. "Mahager Maiden
of the Bals was on band and promptly disclaimed any hold on the player as no signed agreement had yet
been' effected.
The Leafs got one over In tbe flrst
through two clean hits and an error.
The herd came back, and an error
by Sinclair let In an equalizer. Both
curvologists tightened up and for
three straight Innings some stellar
ball was played. In the fourth Sinclair made another muff which resulted In two more tallies being let In.
The Leafs filled the bases in the
fifth, but with twp down, Sinclair died
at the plate while trying to steal.
The Leafs came back strong In the
sixth, and a two-bagger by Corbett
brought ln two runs which tied the
score. Sayce, on third, then stole
home, Dwyer making an attempt to
hail him, but Mr. Umps cried Safe.
After prolonged consultation with his
partner in the business, Mr. Ball
ignited the smouldering flre of the
fans by finally calling Sayce out.
Manager Chockley, after much protest, had to succumb to (he decision,
and with the two teams tied, and
darkness setting ln so that the pill
was hardly descernlble, the laat Inning saw Huhnke and Wallgrer. cross,

It was sure some ball game that
vas staged on the Central Park diamond yesterday afternoon, when
picked teams representing the Van
couver city council and the municipalities adjoining and Including Bur
naby did battle. These dignitaries
had gathered together to assist Burnaby In opening up her m-*' watei
system, and judging from tiie wa>
sonpe of them halloaed loudly for the
ariua Seymour, it was shown conclusively that a full supply of the neces
aary for Burnaby had not como a
minute too soon. ..-'���
The  game  wa3 called in  tUeXrflfth
Inning with Burnaby and her able as
Hlstauu  from  Point -Vrey  and  South
Vancouver leading    by  tho    colossal
score cf -20 to ��.    Councillor Brltton,.
of Burnaby, and Councillor AUei-.. ot

the  suburbanites and 3Jie vSay��^hcy
had the citified sport^*n��yn!? holes
iu  the atmosphere vfiS   * sitht* to
gladden the eyes of the hundred* who
were present on the occasion.
Acting Mayor Crowe was the only
real player In the Vancouver crowd,
and his antics garnered worthy applause throughout the-straggle. The
twirling and batting of ..-Button and
the base stealing cf/AHfh were features. Manager Bob Brown'held the
indicator aud on several close Am-
cislons he was charged with partiality
and menaced by the Vancouver aldermen, who made dire threats of taking
away his baSeball franchise ���"        '
As a wind-up to the fun. Councillor
Fan' Vel, 'of Burhaby, and Acting
%lavor Crowe, of Vancouver, ran a 60
yard race, the former wftmUftW by an

The handsome sHve*- cup given by
Alderman MacSpadden, of Vancouver,
was presented to Reeve Weart, who
plans to have it suitably Inscribed
and placed on exhibition at the municipal hall, Kdmonds.

MAHLON    K.    COWAN     IS    FAST
EARNING THAT TITLE.
Canadian Lawyer, Who \.'i; Formerly
Assistant Solicitor For the Grand
Trunk Railway, Has Appeared ol
Late on Behalf of the Public and
His Victories as a Champion of t'ie
People Are  Many.
Mahlon K. Cowan. K.C. is fast
becoming known throughout Canadn
ss the "People's Lawyer." He was for
a number of years assistant solicitor
of the Grsnd Trunk Railway System
and in that capacity appesred hundreds of times before the Dominion
Railway Commission. He may fairly
be regarded as a traffic expert, and
when he appears now-a-dayg against
the railway companies they find it
difficult to get away with the old-time
bluffs. He scored a big victory as
counsel for Saskatchewan and Alberta
when the Railway Commission put the
burden   of   proof   upon   the   railway
MAHLON*  K.  COWA*,  K.C.
companies to justify their- charging
higher freight rates in the west thsn
in the east, and those who followed
the snthracite coal case in Toronto
fhe other day believe that in this case
"Mel" Cowan is g< ing to win another
victory for lhe people.
Mr. Cowan was born in Essex County. May 10, 1SC3. He was called to
the Bar and practiced for years in
Windsor. In 1895 he was elected to
the House of Commons as a Libera!
and wss re-elected in 19C0. His home
is now in Toronto. He lives at the
Alexandra Apartments and is eattfbr.s
on his profession as a member of
the firm ot Beatty, Bia*stock, Fas-
ken, Cowan and Chadwick.
Mr. Cowan must have bce:i a great
politician in his time, bein,; tua;jr.e.ic.
companionable, and with a lever tailing memory for faces and friends. Ai
a lawyer, his grjat strength lies in
his ability to seize the one important
point and cling to it without fussin?
o\er trivialities and details. He is mi
a position to render great service bv
appearing in the public interest lief' re
the Railway Commision, the committees  of Parliament  and  the courts.
His iAajesty Has   Grown   Vegetables
Ever Since He Was a Boy.
The fact is not generally, known
that King Georgo is extremely fond
of gardening, though hr> hns not now
fo much time to devote to this pn.s-
tiqfie as was the case when he wns
Duke of Cornwall nnd York. Then
the present King nnd Que?n pn-sed
the greater part of Iheir year nt York
Cottage. Sandringham. nn 1 His Majesty cultivntsd a small garden entirely hy hims"lf, resolutely refusing
nny assistnnce save Hint of the Queen,
who would occasionally help him to
prune the. rose Wps nnd otlier light
tasks of (lint description.
Vegetabl.> growing strongly appealed to His Majesty: and li? was ajwnys
highly delighted when he could send
a couple of cabbages or a basket of
peas to Queen Alexandra for her^
especial use tliat he had planted and
grown himself.
This love of gardening has existed
witli His Maii-sfy since he was quite
a boy, when ho nnd the late Duke of
Clarence und Avoudnle were each
assigned b plot of land in the kitchen
gardens of Sandringham for their own
use. This garden they were expected
to keep Irini snd in proper order
throughout ths yeur. Here the tastes
of the two young princes varied in
rather striking fashion. The l.ite
Duke of Clarence grew flowers, to thj
exclusion of everything else. Roses
in particular were a passion with
him, and throughout the summer
months, wherever Queen Alexandra
might he staying, there was always
ona small vnse upon he: writing-
table filled with a handful of blooms
grown for her hy her elder son.
King tieorge, however, mod 'lied his
garden in more practical shape, and
devoted his .att-ntion to growing us>
fu! things, such as poiatoes and turnips and carrots. As he once put it.
with boyish frankness, "Roses are nil
very well.-but you cannot eat thrni
when you ar> hungry." Only tliose
wlio know His Majesty can realize
what an extrenHy good agriculturist
ho is. Anything connected with farming, from the rearing of prise cattle
down to experiments witli new varieties nf se:d notnUrs. appeals to him
mort strongly, and he will oflen sit
up far into the night reading soni"
work upon a new phase of farming.
Tlie King encourages his sons to
take >n interest -in gardening, nnd
"ach has his own plot at York Cottage. It is a matter for cinstant regret with llttl." Prince Henry, the
third son of the King and Queen, that
his absence at boarding school prevents him from tending this all the
yenr round, sino he shsrr-s his
father's love of gardening to a very
considerable extent. . lie has, how-
ever, a small garden ut his scliool.
and Queen Mary was bot'i surprised
snd del:ghted to iind a large hunch
of sweet p"ris placed upon h.r breakfast table upon the morning of her
coronation last June. These ths littlo
prince hnd crown for his mothT.
Tlie King hns Inen heard to d c!ar_>
that gardening is the most invigorating pastime in the worlJ. snd thnt if
mor- men would devote only sn hour
or two every duy to work in their
gardens ther.- would be fewer complaints of liv.r trouble and les* need
for physical culture of nn artificial
nature. Within the past twelve
months he has been known to take
a spnd" nnd dig most vigorously for
some tim?. scnrcely pausing to roft.
Afterwards he has dee'arpd himself
to fei'h ever so much bettor for it.

True In Every Language.
Tennyson once, attended a diiu'ei
v! ert; Q, I. Craik propose I "The La-
'ies." In doing so he recalled the
ynical advice given liy a brother Scot
'o his children: "Tak my advice am1
linns m rry for siller.   You can hur
��� *tt cheaper." Some time later Ten-
yso.i at his own tahle repeated Mr.
'rillk's story,  hut expressed  the  idea
tnout attempting dialect. Hi? son.
lall.iui, remarked, Surely, father,
raik did not use those wonis." "Na.
ie did not; but, then. Craik is h
Scotchman, and I am afrnid to venture on repeating him exactly. How-
iver. it's almost as good in Kngiish ns
in Scotch, and it's tremendously true
in  both."

with "O. W. R." on coat collar nnd

dignuutly rejecting his attempts to

An
Inheritance
Should It Co to the Church or to an
Heir of the Third Generation?
By P. A. MITCHEL
;Q'��iti��it s ��� ��� > ****** *.**! nm a*********** **Q
"Mrs. Whltridge," said Mr. Trevor,
"I bave called to ask your assistance
tn a very important matter to me. You
-hnve six daughters, all of whom are
well married. Wblle I am willing to
ndmit, mndum, that these ladies are
most attractive, 1 cannot but attribute
something of the management of their
I matrimonial affairs to you."
"You are quite rlghL Mr. Trevor.
Many of tbe best women In the world
are not married, and many of the most
undesirable are. I believe tbls is due
more to a lack of management for tbe
girls oa tbe part of their mothers wben
they come to a marriageable age than
-any other cnuse. My daughters, as
you say, are by uo means unattractive,
but tbe fact that tbey are all well and
happily married Is due far more to
management tbnn their own charms.
What can 1 do for you, Mr. Trevor?"
"1 bave but one son, as you know-
Arthur. 1 have spent my whole life
In building up a fortune nnd from my
boy's birth have set my heart ln handing It down through blm to my de-
���scendnnts. He disappointed me by
taking orders nnd uow, being very high
���church, has declared for celibacy and
refuses to marry."
"I see.    You wish me to take sucb
��� measures ns will break bis resolution."
"If yeu will be so kind. Mrs. Whit-
��� ridge, I would like you to throw in
liis way some young woman of line
character, of irreproachable reputation.
���of intellectual"���
"1 beg your pardon. Mr. Trevor.    1
���thought you said you  wished me to
��� manage'I he affair."
"So I do."
"Well. then, permit me to say tbat I
-think you must put up wttb a duugb
��� ter-ln-luw of entirely different caliber
from the kind you unme or uone nt uli
lt dues uui strike me that such a woman would serve our purpose In the present case. I have kuowu you fur years
und am sure no son of such a father
can   be   reasoned   or  persuaded   Into
��� changing n resolution, once mnde."
"How is he to lie bundled'/"
"Bamboozled."
"You flutter me Indirectly. .Mrs. Whit
irldge."
"A strong mun doesn't need u strung
-yrotonn."
"I see."
"I have In mind a young lady who nt
school xrood nt tba /uot of ber class.
-tun ns n tllrt was nt tbe bend She bun
luid uiniiy offers, but If xhe Is a fool nt
'luniks she tins practical sense enough
��� to wish for an establishment wbeu she
marries If you desire ll 1 wlll endniv
ior. wtth your assistance, lo utitke a
match between your son and her."
"Any |Hirt In n storm.   What I want
���i* an heir of tbe third generation "
"Very well. To begin I Khali invite
you and your son lo dinner The young
lndy will tie present When you have
left us tell your son thut you lime
tieeh much pleased wlib ber ujd you
wish sbe'mlgbt become your daughter
.In-law He will demur, snd you^wlh
Insist After a number of convents
tlons ud the matter yon wlll tell hlm
that either he must give up Inherit In.:
yonr fortune or mnrry Ihe girl of your
choice, provided, of course, that sin-
will hnve hlm."
.   "He wishes my fortune for the pur
pose of building u cathedral "
"So much tbo better.    I shnll **+
something of him myself end nertinp-
may be able to make certelu sugges
tlons."
"Por what purpose***
"To entangle him "
These preliminary arrangements Iin?
lug hen made. Mr. Trevor arose to go
"By the liye. Mrs. Whltridge.' Itesiitrt
"I believe yon are mnuuRlug dlrii-ioi
of *L Luke's hospital."
I am,''
���That's too bnd. Does your father
consider tbat the young lady may have
other plans for her future?"
������Ob, yes: lie says that ir she won't
have me he must give up bis plan."
"And If she accepts?"
"In tbnt *vent lf I don't wed ner tatber will disinherit me."
"Aud bow can 1 help you?"
"You might say to Mlss Seaton that
by refusing me she will be Instrumental In saving to the cburcb tbc tinest Episcopal cathedral on this continent"
"My dear Mr. Trevor. I wouW advise
you to make yourself an appeal to
Mlss Sen ton's higher nature. 1 know,
though I suppose 1 should not tell you,
that she admires you very much. Tbat
will muke ber sacrifice nobler."
"Do you really tblnk that, Mrs. Whltridge?"
"I am sure of It. But I am violating
a confidence in letting you know (her
feelings."
"And you advise me to tell Mlss Seaton tbat this great work of mine depends upon ber refusing an' offer of
marriage from me?"
"I do; but. of course. If yon put ber
on ber pride and she refuses you because you do not wish her on personal
grounds your father wlll not consider
lh.it excusable In you."
"Certainly not. It Is a very delicate
natter to put to a young lady. That's
why I come to yon, hoping you would
do It for mc."
"I am sure your father wonld not be
satisfied except by your making Mlss
Seaton a proposal. Intimating tbat If
you had not embraced the doctrine or
celibacy you would be happy to bar*,
her accept yon. It would also, 1 think,
be legitimate for you to give ber the
alternative of making tbe sacrifice for
tbe church. It would be a great satisfaction to you to have so worked on
her religions nature as to Induce br>
to give up a husband tbat tbe cbur��'h
might hare a cathedral."
Mr. Trevor wns only partially persuaded, bnt he said be would consider
the matter of putting the case to Miss
Seaton. Mrs. Whltridge went so far
as to suggest tbat If he would do so
at her home she might be of eome assistance In tbe matter. Upon tbls assurance be asked ber to Invite tbe
young lady tbere on tbe following
evening and give him the necessary
opportunity.
Now there was as mucb chance of
Mlss Senton's giving up an attractive
husband and a fortune that tbe church
might bave a cathedral as there would
be of a small boy giving tbe lion's
share of bis candy to bis playmates.
She dined tbe next duy with Mrs.
Whltridge. who posted her on tbe sacrifice tbe clergyman'hoped she would
make.
Wben Mr. Trevor cnlled In the evening he found the two ladles In a coxy
little side parlor Illuminuted by dimly
shaded lamps. Mrs. Whltridge soon
after arose to leave them, the clergy
man casting a wistful look after her ns
she retired. Sbe drew a portiere after
ber tbnt Mr. Trevor might submit his
proposition  without observatiop or lu
ICITUIlliull.

CINEMATOGRAPH RUSES.
Some   cf   the   Tricks   ef   the   Moving
Picture    Man.
A trick picture is usually the combined efforts of tho comic pint writer
and the expert cinematograph, operator, says The London Strand. Tlie
operator is continually puzzling his
J-brains for new effects with the camera.
He conveys these to the plot writer,
who works them up in the fi.rm of a
very short story. When we see the
finished production on the screen it
i.s, to most of us, a work of complete
mystery, and it is asked. "Are they
really taken from life?" We often see,
for instance, flowers wllich jump from
a table and arrange'themselves in a
vase or a man-diving with the greatest of ease head lirst out of a river
and landing on his feet on the bank.
"How are these things done!""
In order to discover these secrets
permission was obtained to join a
picture company which was then engaged in the production of a film
entitled "The Uncanny Scot." The
parly consisted of a stock company
of a dozen, or more actors and actresses, a stage manager, a photo-
grapher and some stage hands. The
work to he done consisted chiefly of
outdoor street scenes, and a journey
was made some fourteen miles nut of
London in order to avoid tlie unpay-
ing audiences whioh such strange
scenes "always   bring  together.
The .work commenced outside a
cigar store, and each scene was most
carefully rehearsed. A youthful actor,
as an errand boy who was engaged
in opening the shop, brought from it
a dummy Scotchman in the act of
taking snuff and placed it in position
at the shop door. At this point the
stage manager, who was conducting
the operations, blew a whistle, and
instantly the boy remained motion-
les.i.
The company understood by the
whistle that they were to cease the
slightest movement and the photographer that he must instautly stop
the camera.
The dummy of the Scotchman was
now removed,"and an actor identically dressed was arranged in precisely
the same position. The whistle went
again, and the boy resumed his work.
When next passing the Scotchman he
received a kick from him which
caused him to bolt into the shop in
terror. The whistle now sounded
again, and a further substitution of
dummy for man was made by the
stage hands. An actor-tobacconist
came out of the shop, and the boy-
explained what had happened, but was
dumbfounded when the master turned the flgure upside down and thu?
showed it to be lifeless. The scene
proceeded, with many stops and
changes from, the live S-olcliman t"
the inanimate dummy, f topping the
camera simultaneously with the ees
sntion oi all animation insured that
the effect on the screen would be pet-
fectly continuous, as, of course, the
film would be run through without
any break.

century, though the present building
is modern, save for some o'.d wood
work in the coffee room. The priory,
too, in Holywell hill, was once the

Gradually; Increasing to mid-season
numbers the sockeye run of the past
two or three days is reported by local
fishermen to exceed that of any prev-.
ious periods in this year's fishing
season of the same length of time. On
July 8 300 'fish were caught by the
Glenrose cannery, whereas the catch |
yesterday at the Glenrose plant" was
over 800.
Of the 50 odd l>oats employed by
this company, the average catcb, to
the boat during the past two weeks
has been about 25 to 30 per day.
The Imperial cannery at 8teveston
had about CO boats out on Sunday
evening, the average catch being
about 20 per -boat. The record single
haul made by any one boat was 125
sockeyes, which were taken from
English bay. At the present time the
price of lish at the different canneries
ranges about 40 cents per flsh, but at
a meeting of the D. C. Canneries association to be held shortly in Vancouver the price of salmon will bo definitely fixed.
Mr. H. Bell Irving, of Vancouver,
who is largely interested in the salmon industry, is at the present time
visiting the northern canneries and
the meeting of the Canneries association will not be called by Mr. Rer,

Westminster Road Improvement Association Has Renly From Victoria.
The Westminster Hoad Improvement Association is said to have received word from the Provincial Government that its application for a
grant of $25,000 towards the permanent improvement of the streets has
been refused.
The association contended that t.b����
government had never kept the street
in proper repair and during time that
tlie city proposes to lay down a pavement the provincial authorities should
assist the property owners in meeting their share of the cost which will
be large as the street is 100 feet wide.
It was explained in the answer from
Victoria that as D.��L. 301 is now in
the city the government does not see
its way clear Jo makp the grant.
