Unionists Refuse lo Permit Liberal Proposal to Rescind Banbury Amendment���Speaker Forced to Adjourn House
when Free Fight Threatens--Asquith Struck with Papers-
Churchill gets Big Volume Square in Chest
London, Nov. 13.���The House of
Commons, the popular house of tho
Mother of Parliaments, was the scene
tonight of a riot over Premier As-
quith'B proposal to rescind the action
of Monday, when the Unionists carried
by a majority of 22 Sir Frederick
Banbury's amendment defeating thi
most Important financial feature of the
Home Rule bill.
The Unionists refused to permit tho
debate and the Speaker was forced to
adjourn the session on account of the
disorder. This is an extremely raro
necessity and the situation is consid
ered a critical one.
The Unionists almost unanimously
threaten that they wlll continue to
make business ln the House Impossible until the Prime Minister accepts
the amendment in the House or drops

tbat his action is unprecedented and
wlll be obstructed by unprecedented
Unequalled Since G. O. M.
The uproar far exceeded that whicli
stifled Premier Asqulth's speech when
he Introduced the Home Rule bill and
has not been equalled since the free
flght over Gladstone's first Home Rule
The ministers were taunted with epithets like "apes" and "traitors."
Sir William Hull. Unionist for Ham
mersmith, was ordered from the floor
for repeatedly calling Mr. Asqultli "a
A yell of victory burst from the
Unionists. The members of the cabl-
riet clustered on their side of the
clerk's table. No one moved to leave
the House.
Struck Prime Minister.
On the Unionist side was a seething
mob. An arm was raised and a document Hew across the floor. It struck
the Prime Minister on the shoulder.
A shower of other papers fell among
the group of ministers.
Mr. Asrjuith, white und indignant,
faced the attack with folded arms.
The air was thick with papers and
hats. At length tbe Prime Minister
walked to the door, greeted with yells
of defiance and approval. Suddenly n
Unionist member, Ronald McNeill,
rushed to the clerk's table and seized *
heavy volume. He hurled lt at the
First Lord of the Admiralty, Mr.
Churchill, whom it struck on the
chest. There Was an ugly rush from
the Liberal benches, but cooler heads
held back their colleagues.
Government Unmoved.
For a moment a battle of lists
seemed imminent. The peace-making
vvolce of Will Crooks was raised In
song, "Should Auld Acquaintance Be
Forgot?" Others took up the refrain
and gradually floated Into the lobbies.
At a cabinet meeting later, It was
determined to adhere to the programme.
Of Councillors and School Board

Several Important matters in connection with labor men were debated
at the spinl-monthly meeting of thc
Trades and Labor Council last evening
and a committee was named to drat
questions for presentation to the. Royal Commission on Labor to be ap
pointed within the next few days by tli:'
provincial government. Another committee will discuss the approaching
civic election campaign with the probability of placing candidates in tbe
fleld both for aldermanic and school
trustee honors.
Delegate Knudson appeared to disfavor approaching this Royal Commission, as he stated their deliberations
would be pigeon-holed just as those
of other commissions had been. Dele
gate Dodd was of the same mind as
far aa results went, but favored com
missions, as their deliberations were
given much publicity by th^ press
and so were read by thousands of peo

province that the labor men were not

Contradictory Evid ince Regarding Chiirs Made in

Pile-ramming at Fraser Mills���Boyd's
Seamanship Questioned, But Testimonials Given Him.
The defence In connection1 with thc
enquiry being pursued by Commissioner Hon. W. Norman Bole, K. C,
with regard .to conditions on board the
snagboat Samson, had their day at the
session yesterday morning and afternoon. Several witnesses, for the most
part persons connected with the crew
of the Samson, gave testimony.
One of them named McLeod, who
was carpenter of the boat when Boyd
was mate, and is at present acting
mate, stated that he had performed
work for Boyd during government
time. He had, at Boyd's request maA?
two swing chairs, one of them from
the best wood on the ship.
In rebuttal Boyd produced one of
the chairs, which- showed evidence
Ihat it had been made from cannery
supplies, and promised to produce ths
other at today's session. Regarding a
tub which McLeod stated he had made
for him, Boyd claimed that this wa3
made from a whiskey keg fished out
of the river.
Gave Boyd Testimonial.
Captain Carter, river pilot, and at
present In command of the Samson,
was called by Mr. J. D. Taylor, who
asked him whether Boyd had ever told
him he had been blacklisted' by shlD-
owners at Belfast, Ireland. Carter admitted that while Boyd was mate ol
the tug Earl, he (Boyd) had told him
of legal troubles with his former masters and because he won ouL he had
had difficulty In securing anothe;
He, however, admittpd that he hai

Vancouver  Business  Men  Address
Large and Enthusiastic Gathering
���Executive Officers Elected.
The New Westminster Retail Mer
chants Association, fully constituted,
and executive officers all elected, was
launched at an enthusiastic gathering
ot tbe retail business men of the city
in the Conservative Club rooms laat
night The objects of the association
which were fully described in thesi-
columns a week ago, are chiefly for
encouraging co-operation among the
retailers in order io avoid contracting
bad debts.
The meeting was featured by the
presence of several prominent Vancouver business men who spoke of the
great benefits the organization would
be for the retailers of the city. Mr.

Delegate Hogg drew attention to thc

company was not living up to their

and, unable to speak English, he had
perforce to journey to Vancouver to
get it cashed, thus losing 50 centa on

Association asking their support In

to work tor the Federation support of

in 1913, and also to try and capture

A matter, which looked small when
first broached, assumed larger dimensions later in tbe discussion, and was
brought up by Delegate Chockley over

. From the evidence adduced at an in
quest upon the death of Young Joy, a
Chinaman, by Coroner McQuarrie last
night lt would appear that a state oi
affairs exists in what is known as thc
Chinese Hospital, in the heart of Chi
natown, scarcely conducive to the
health of the city, while the procedure
of the Chinese regarding their sick
may at any time result in the spread
of dangerous maladies.
The coroner's Jury pronounced a
verdict of "death from natural causes '
but, based ou the testimony of th?
witnesses, especially in reference to
the treatment given the deceased, they
added a rider suggesting that the civic
authorities investigate the system of
the Chinese Hospital.
Got Chinese Medicine.
It seems that Young Joy fell 111 and
following the usual custom among hl-
fellow-countrymen tn Westminster, he
was taken to the Chinese Hospital,
which, it is understood, is supported
by subscriptions of the Chinese and
subsidized bv the Chinese government.
Here, lt is alleged, he received no
medicine, at least not what would be
recognized as medicine in the eyes of
a fully qualified physician, but was fed
regularly on rice and other foods of
the varieties peculiar only to the Chinese.
This course of treatment was subject to much question by the coroner
and jury, and accordingly the rider
calling for an investigation by the civ

London, Nov. 13.���The Porte, on the
advice of Russia, Las Instructed Naz
im Pasha, the Turkish commander-in
chief, to apply to the Bulgarian com.
mander for an eight days' armistice
wltb a view to opening direct negotid
tlons for peace.
This decision seems to show that
Turkey has little hope of being ahl ���
to hold the Tchatalja lines against ths
Bulgarian advance. Tbere is no news
however, as to how the Bulgariai
commander met the Turkish request.
Bulgarians Creep Close.
The situation at the front ts confus
lng owing to the paucity of the news
allowed to filter through from eithei
side. Clearly there has been heavj
fighting, as on November 12, Constan

Constantinople, Nov. 13 (Midnight).
���That the Porte has entered into direct negotiations with Bulgaria for an
armistice is confirmed.
Nazlm Pasha, the Turkish commander-in-chief, has received instructions
to open communication witb the Bulgarian generals, and he has sent aa
envoy to Bulgarian headquarters.
The Porte appears resolved on this
course, owing, cn the one hand to the
delay of the powers lu handling the
mediation proposal, and on the other-
hand, to the divergence of views the
proposals have occasioned among tho
powers. Tbe Porte, according to official circles, ls unwilling to add to tha
existing embarrassments of the powers.
Was Only Course.
It ls understood here that only foui-
of the powers agreed to submit the
mediation proposal,  while   two,   presumably Austria   and   Germany,   abstained    from   participating.     Under
these circumstances, the Porte elected'
to apply to the principal belligerent,
Bulgaria;  and there is reason to believe the same course will be adopted'
in the negotiations for terms of peace.

Heretofore the gatherings have been

a meeting of the executive In the exhibition building during tbe Fair week,
Mr. D, R. MacKenzie pointed out several advantageous reasons tor holding
the next convention in Westminster.
and it waa accordingly decided to do
The chief arguments given ln favor
of this were that' Westminster waa
much more centrally located for men
actually located hi the dairy industry,
the Fraser Valley being considered thc
biggest district in tbe province where
the business waa carried on.
It has been customary in the past to
'iold tbe convention for one day only,
but this time owing to the proximity
ot the Fraser Valley district to Westminster the gathering will extend
through two days.
One of the most Important features
ot the convention will be a public
demonstration of automatic milkers In
the market building. Other demonstrations of a like nature will alao be
held, together with a discussion on the
existing systems of handling milk nnd

"It provides a great Incentive to th?
dairy business of this district to have

arrangements for the gathering. "I
think that special Interest on the part

Sydney, N. S. W., Nov. 13��� Chased

fate of the representative of the King

Lord Denman, governor-general of
the commonwealth, who recently received notice from the state. government to quit has now packed up and
gone to his residence in Melbourne,
the temporary capital of the great island continent.
'lhe reasons for his going seem paltry enough. The labor government
now declares that It wants the building for a museum and the groundB for
an extension of the botanical gardens.
Also the government grudges the $15,-

Sydney society is shocked beyond

schemes to keep the residence of the
governor-general intact. Nevertheless

offered to pay the $15,000, but were
turned down by the state parliament.
The commonwealth government offered to pay the state authorities 3V2
per cent, on the capital value of the
estate and was likewise snubbed. Lord
Denman himself protested- mildly but
without avail.
If the governor-general wishes to
visit Sydney now he will have to be
the guest of the state governor.
Considering the fact that the residence was in the first place a gift to
the state of New South Wales from
the Imperial authorities, the government's attitude Is more than outrageous and likely to have some effect at
the next election.

The caterpillar pest has ruined the j
apple crop in the Two Mountain dis- j
trict save in the TrappisU irchards. j
In St. Joseph's und other surrounding |
villages" the apple trees have suffered i
immensely from tlie deadly  slug.
The Trappist Monks, through the j
work of one of their memhers, Rev. |
Father Leopold, the horticulturist, i
and one of the youngest aiul most dia- |
tinguished Fathers of that austere or- j
der after visiting many of the leading |
orchards in Europe last year discover- |
ed a remedy for the many deadly en- j
rmies whicii have been playing grest
havoc among the various class of fruit j
trees of late years.
"It was a hard fight to keep ahead j
ol the enemy this year," said mie of
the veteran monks who has spent
nearly forty years in the cloister,
speaking to a Montreal Standard representative, "but we had to woik
hard and we have succeeded in saving
our fruit trees. While the crop will
not be cs large as last year, still it
will be an average one."
The vegetable crops will be in the
same  proportion.
The ginsing plant of a famous medicinal plant prized by the Chinese as
such is beirg cultivated by the monks.
At present ther.> are several acres under cultivation, the value ol whicii is
$10,000. It sold in China for $15, $2ft
and $30 a pound while a rare aptcies
of the plar.t is sold for lrom $450 to
$600 a pound.
The plar.t takes seven years for full
maturity, though nfter four ye*rs
portions of it like the seeds, which
grow on the top, may be used lor different purposes. There are only three
places in Canada where thc plant is
cultivated, th.e Trappists having tlie
largest supply. The Chinese keep the
gre. t ni'dicir.al value of this plant a
pr..found Secret.

robbers entered the ginsing garden.

Two Hostile Camps Lining Up as Result of Royal Commission Report
'/ . on Big Question.
London, Nor. 1$.���England Ib dividing Into two bitterly hostile camps
over the report of tha Royal Divorce
Commission. The supporters of the
minority report hold that the eaaler
and cheaper divorce recommended by
tbe majority wlll have a demoralizing
effect upon the homes and the morals
of the country. The supporters of the
minority approve the majority provision, that both sexes shall be on equal
footing as regards divorce, but they
insist that otherwise the grounds for
divorce be not extended and they object to the recommendation that oases
be heard In camera and the details
be not printed until the trials are
ended. Many leaders, however, declare the majority report to< be n
triumph of common sense. Sir Arthur
Conan Doyle s.iys:
"The report brings hope to many
who bave long lost tt. H adopted, it
will maha marriage purer and holler
tbaa ever.   The minority restates ths
old ecclesiastical position which
would have forbidden divorce utterly:
only the crying needs of humanity
were too strong for it."
Lord Robert Cecil, speaking for the
advocates of the minority report Says
the proposal of the majority to extend
the- causes for divorce, would, lf accepted, reduce the marriage law s,nd
the country to chaos. He declares
further that no alteration ln the marriage laws should be made untll women bave the vote.
The Liberal newspapers, representing the non-conformist thought, as a
rule, favor the report while the Unionist organs, voicing the opinions of tho i
Established Church, support the minority, holding generally that the acceptance of the majority recommendation would transform England Into a
national Reno and sap the foundations of society.
Earl Russell, who was the central
flgure in a sensational dlvorco ease,
says ln the Da<1v News:
"The majority report. If accepted
wlll do much to make divorce equal to
the pocr, and to abolish Enoch Ardeu
sir ftporge: Lewis, savs the recommendations of the majority report are
excellent bnt do not go far enough,
vi agree," he says, "with the proposal to make flve fresh grounds for
divorce and still more wtth the suggestion to reduce the period fnr desertion necessary for obtaining dl-
vorce from three to two years. Qne,
question should h%ve been dealt with
ln a different way,   I think it neither
moral nor in the Interests of husband,
wife or children, or tbe state, that
married persons, both guilty cf misconduct, should continue to live together."
British    Naval   and   Immigration Organisation Wants Men From British Army and Navy.
Ottawa, Nov. 13.���Suggesting that
the government should make a grant
ot $60,000, a delegation of the Naval
and Immigration League of Toronto,
headed by E. G. Scammell. had an interview with Hon. Dr. Roche today.
They also brought up a number of matters In connection with the work of
the organisation.
The object of tbe league is to bring
to Canada soldiers and sailors wbo
have served .full terms In Uie British
army and navy. Tho co-operation of
the Ironrltrratlon department/was aak-
ed tor 'n connection with the work.
, Dr. Roche gave them a sympathetic
hearing. lie said that while he oould
make ho promises, he would take the
matter  before Premier  Borden,  and
his colleagues.
Dr. Roche was also waited upon by
a delegation representing the St. John
Ambulance Association, consisting of
Dr. F. Montizambert, director-general
of public health and president of the
association; Sir Louis H. Davles,
chairman of the committee; Dr. C. F.
Podgetts. J. M. Courtney, Col. D. T.
Irwin, Fred Cook, honorary secretary,
and Major R. J. Blrdwhlstle.
They laid before the minister the
matter of having the various survey
parties connected with his defettrt-
ment properly supplied wtth appli
ancea for the rendering ot first aid lu
cases of accident and sudden illness.
and also asking that every auch party
going out on work of this kind should
have one or more men with a practical
knowledge of how to help hla fellow-
men When far from medical assistance.
. Numerous cases were cited In sup-
! port of the contention of the deputation. In almost every party accidents
have occurred which have resulted
seriously, throneh the lack of such
knowledge, or life bas been saved by
the application of the knowledge acquired in the flrst *td classes.
In nddit'on to the minister and deputation there were present R. H.
Campbell, director of forestry; Dr. W.
F. Klnsr. chief astronomer; Dr. De-
vllle. director of Dominion lan�� .survey*, and R. W. Brook, director of thft
geological surver. All these gentlemen expressed themselves as heartily
ln favor of the pfbposftlon aha' corroborated the statements ot the depu
tation, tn which were cited cases of
serious accidents occurring ln connection with such work.
The minister expressed hls appreciation of tbe value of the work and
promised to bring beforo the various
branches ot his department the necessity for action along the lines suggested.

We are pleased to notice  that the
elty council   is   taking   seriously the
I suggestion  Of the   publicity  commis-
it    \ sloner that New Westminster   estab
lish a market for the fruit of the interior,   poiibtless It will not be easy
.to accomplish anything in this Une as
; there are"s*veral elementary  difficulties to be overcome such as   freight
rates, byt we do not.think a success-
.ful outcome by any means impossible.
Therq is, however, one side of tft'9
���proposition which has   not   yet beeu
��� commented on.    This is the possibility of securing the oversea  transportation'of-this fruit for the   port   of
New Westiftftlster.
One of the most importan t factors
ln building np the trade of any port is
the possession pf cold storage warehouses where the produce of the interior can be held awaiting shipment.
Already a large quantity of Okanagan
apples are shipped to Australia and
New Zealand and there is every prospect of this traffic growing. A r*
' turn trade in fruits is also springing
up at a different time of the year.
Now  if  Now  Westminster was th.3
port on this coast that possessed the
-only up-to-date facilities for  handling
this special business, this trade wouli
rapidly become hers, especially when
the unexampled  distribution  facilities
-existing on-the Kraser river are taken
Into consideration.     The builders   of
every successful port have had   one
guiding' principle  to prepare  for   ex-
_ pected trade before it comes, for then
it will come for sure, and the  harbor
���fcuililesa. af .thia rity must   follow the
same maxim. /
With these facts in mind, it will be
lo the interest of every merchant and
especially the grocers of tlie *���"������ to
render every assistance In their power to market Hritish Columbia fruit in
New Westminster. Thus they will
not be only building up their own business, but'jtfso that of the interior a3
well. And the development of that
interior should be the object of every
earnest-minded man in British Columbia today.
grove might be made to sit and gaze
contemplatively on the shack-town
that has superseded the trees. The
venoor of disqualified fruit would bo
made to bull the market by consuming
It himself, and the canners who combined might be assigned to cramped
quarters within the soldered cans.
Our visitor forgot about Ontario, but
in large conceptions of destiny trifling
omissions must be expected. Perhaps
this province Is to be left wandering
about like a comet among the heavenly bodies. It may flnd no rest for the
sole of its foot. Ontario Is a fact, and
facts are stubborn things. But thla
provinde does not feel slighted. If forgotten by destiny today she will be
picked up tombrrow. It is impossible
to escape the burden. On destiny's
head destinies accumulate.���Toronto

Canada has still another destiny;

Another bond of union betwen the

the Empire's, and Britain held that
constitution lu trust for the Overseas
Dominions no less than for the Motherland. The Empire today needed an

four tons of hay to the acre, simply

"This drainage scheme should apply
more to the low lands of the Fraser

more attention is paid to dyking and

Just Like Tou Scratch My Bsok and

One of the humorous sights of India,
says a contributor to the Wide World
Magazine, is tbe daily bottling purnde
iu h native prison. In tbe one we witnessed were youthful habltunl criminals, varying In nge from nine to fifteen years, taking their dully dip at
Agra Jull. While tbe governor watches
proceedings from tbe shade of a tree
tbe prisoners, eacb mnn fettered and
carrying a bowl of beaten brass or
steel, are led out In double file to a
stone pavement, on each side of wblcb
runs a shallow trough of water.
At tbe command of a native warder
bowls are filled and wu 1st clot bs are
washed. At n second order the prisoners scoop water over tbemselved and
then sink smartly to their haunches,
one behind another, In purallel lines.
Again comes a snappy order from tbe
warder, and eacb man begins vigorously to rub tbe back of tbe fellow In
front of blm. Wben tbe warder Judges
tbe "assuage" Is complete his voice
brings tbe two lines to a smart right
about fsre. still on their haunches, and
tbe rigorous rubbing begins again, eacb
man doing for his fellow whst bis fellow did for him.
The procexs. while comical. Is a geno-
lue illustration of tbe saying. "Yoa

yours," exeept, of course, to the prisoners whose fate brings tbem to tho

"One nlgbt I was walking along Superior street near the St. Louis hotel
when I met a man walking with an
uncertain gait He had lieen drinking. The man stopped right lu front
of me and gazed up Into the sky and
"Tbere Is no hope,' he moaned.
"I asked him If I could help blm, but
tbe poor fellow shook bis head.
" 'No Indeed, nobody can help me.
Here I am, drunk, and I want to go
bome before 1 get auy drunker, and I
can't get home because It is Impossible
to get boftie, absolutely impossible, it's
Impossible, understand nie? It hi Impossible for uie to get bome.'
" 'Wby can't you get home?" I asked
blm.   'Where do yoo live?*
"'You see tliat there red, round,
circular old moon up yonder?" he asked. 'I mean tbut little old. round, red
moon between yonder bluffs. You see
that moony
���"Yes. I see the moon.'
" 'And yon see tbat there twinkling,
pretty, diamond star, sparkling in tbe
beauteous sky over tbe little, old,
round, red moon?   See ItV
" 'Yes, I see tbe star."
"���Well, that ain't nc star. That's

Writing to a friend, tbe author ot
"European Years" Includes what be
terms "a couple of bubbles" In one
letter. One. be says, be found ln tbe
Ixindon Telegraph; the otber he does

Well, this Is the bubble: Tbe new
bishop of New Zealand. In a farewell and pathetic interview wltb bis
mother after bis appointment, was
tbus addressed by ber in sucb sequence as sobs and tears would permit: "I suppose tbey wlll eat you, my
dear. I try to thiuk otherwise, but I
suppose they will. Well, we must
leave It In tbe hands of Providence.
Rut If they do, mind, my dear, and dls
agree wtth them."
Another bubble, snd a very tiny one:

When a Man Marries
When a man marries he quickly discovers
his need of innumerable things he had
never thought of before.
And the butcher, the baker and the cabinet maker have a new home to supply.
The new husband and wife must buy
things to which they had previously given
little thought.
A thousand marriages mean a thousand
new homes.
Right here is a fact overlooked by many
They aay, "Bow oould it pay ua to
keep on repeating the story of our
goods or aervlce."?
If they oould reach every possible
customer wtth one advertisement���
and tf people didn't forget���thero
might be no object In keeping everlastingly at IL
But becauae every possible customer does not read every advertisement,
you must repeat
And because these thousands of new
homes are every day coming Into existence, continuous advertising brings
Increased resulta.
Perhaps aome people knew your
goods or your store five or ten yeara
ago. Since then new generations have

Buffeted by heavy seas from the time
she pulled out from this city twelve
days ago, tbe halibut steamer Roman,
which arrived back from the bank.3
yesterday morning, brought one of the
lightest catches on record.
When seen last evening one of the
officials connected with the Columbia
Cold Storage Company, stated that so
far as they were concerned, there wa3
little prospect of the halibut fishermen
going on strike from the boats operating out of New .Westminster, and they
had heard no rumors of the men even
considering the move.
They are paid a certain percentage
of the amount received for the fish
and while the catches during the past
two months had been small, he did not
think they were in accord with the
Seattle crewrf, who had gone on strike
for more pay.
The Seattle men are demanding an
additional one-half cent per pound ot
fish caught, which concession the own
ers declare would render the operation
of the boats practically unprofitable.
"The men," stated this official.
"have made good during the spring
and summer, and 1 believe they are
well satisfied with present conditions
Each firm is for Itself, and there ls
no kind of a trust between the own
common practice for the Samson to |
buck snags and piling ln the river, and
if the boat was not capable of this
work, then It ought to be taken oft
the job.. He admitted to Mr. Taylo-
that he knew the hull of the boat was
not In good shape, but it was liable to
be stove in by any snag in the river
and the work of ramming piles; was
ln his opinion, no detriment to ths

the accounts of the Samson were

when Captain Young asked Captain
Carter whether he was on board the
Sunison one day when Boyd made two
attempts to hitch a line to a' spar buoy
and failed In both attempts, after
which Young went out in the smalt
boat and did the work himself.
Captain Carter stated he remembered the day in question and also the
trouble in tying the Samson fast.
Tying Up Incident.
In defence of this evidence Mate
B yd, on the stand, stated that wliile
he was in the boat at that time, one
of the crew tried to make fast. Had
he attempted the task his experience
was too good to let a small thing like
that get by him. At that time, tliey
were blowing up a snag in the river
and had the boat not been made fast,
there would have been a danger of
blowing up the Samson and all her
crew if it had come in contact with
tli? dynamite.
During his fourteen months on th3
Samson he could not recall ever allowing a rope hitch to break loose.
The testimony then turned to
charges preferred hy Boyd that Cap-
lain Young in February of this year,
used the Samson as a battering ram
when removing boom piles at the Fraser Mills.
Lash Down Pots.
Boyd stated: "Captain Young, on the
morning in question made several attempts to remove the piling with
blocks and hawser, but finding it slow
work instructed the steward to lasl'
his pots and pans and commenced
ramming the piles and dolphins. Om
dolphin was a hard one to break down
and after making four attempts, which
shivered the boat from stem to stern
she went over it."
As a result, one large pile came
through the outside rim of the paddb
box and the fantail wheels. It was
quite a job to get clear, a saw having
to he used to get rid of the pile. Several of thp paddle blades, or floats,'
continued' Boyd, "were smashed, but
the Kraser Mills Company supplied al'
the new lumber to replace the brokeu
"At that time it was generally
known that the hull of the Samson
was not in the best of condition and
the ramming episode did not improve
