B. C. E. R. Car Barns Burned���Ten Cars Reported Destroyed���Exciting Scenes as Inmates of Rooming House
and Royal George Hotel Make Hurried Escape��� Four
Persons Overcome By Smoke.
Vancouver, July 20.���One of the
most disastrous fires In the history ot
the city occurred last night and raged
lor several hours this morning, property to thc value of $500,000 was destroyed, no lives were lost, but four
persons were taken to the hospital
overcome by smoke.
The fire started in the rear of
Champion and White's building on
Main street, and the flames, fanned by
the wind, rapidly spread north, licking
up the whole block and spreading to
the B. vJ. B. It. car barns where
ten cars standing housed therein were
Forty automobiles, and  four motor
boats are also reported burned.
Thrilling Rescues.
The outbreak occurred shortly before midnight, aud v/as first discovered hy Mr. J. P. Smith, an employee of
the B, C. E. R��� who promptly turned
In the alarm. The fire brigade was
speedily on the scene, but already the
flames had made lightning like progress. Exciting scenes were witnessed as the inmates of the Angelus
rooming house poured out into the
street, some ln very scanty attire and
others burdened with their possessions. Detective Tisdale and P. C.
Sinclair made a thrilling rescue of
two women, one man and a child, who
were overcome by the smoke, and
who were found remaining in the
burning building when fliemen and
police made a gallant entry to arouse
the Inmates and get tbem to the

Royal George Hotel.
The firemen made a determined ef.
fort to save the Royal George hotel,
and in some measure their efforts
were successful. The eighty inmates
of the building were all rescued, although many of thein came to the
sidewalk  in  their night clothing.
The firemen concentrated their efforts at the intersection of Barnard
end Main, and but for tljis fact the
U. C, E. R. power house would have
been destroyed. The flames spread
to False creek, and it was there that
the motor launciies moored to the
wharves were destroyed.
Champion and White are the
heaviest 'osers, their stores being entirely gutted and a total loss.
Chief Carlisl? and practically the
whole of the fire firhting Btaff of Vancouver were engaged in checking the
flames, and at the outset wore hampered by the crowds encroaching on
Main street until the police reaerves
arrived on the scene, when a cordon
was formed, and no one allowed within the restricted area.
The flames were well under by 2:30
a.m., and by 3:45 a.m. the firemen had
complete control.

to be killed was In wide circulation in
the east side resorts Monday evening,
but that If auy report of It reached
headquarters, no measurea were taken
to protect the gambler.
It was commented on that six
policemen nearby did not flre a shot

Dumped   in  Vancouver from  Millionaire Spreckel's Yacht���Captain
Kidd Methods.
Vancouver, July 19.���Claiming that
they were practically shanghaied on
board John D. Spreckel's yacht, the
Venetla, while at Ketchltan, Alaska,
seven seamen were landed In Vancouver today. They allege that their
dunnage is still aboard tbe floating
palace, and that Mr.' Spreckels refused
to hear their complaints.
N. S. Hanson, quartermaster, C. McCabe, Carl Johnson, Richard Eckhardt,
A. Olstrom, Oscar Yansen and Julius
Jorgensen shipped with the Venetia
at San Diego. At San Francisco a
new first mate, Harry Rainier, was
taken on. The men claim that he
adopted the training methods of a
modern Captain Kidd, and at Ketchltan two seamen were fired. The remainder cf the deck crew quit, but
the mate refused to land them.
An appeal to Captain Thompson
and Mr. Spreckels resulted, they say,
in a bread and waater diet until the
ship reached Vancouver, where the
men were put ashore, minus dunnage
and back pay. The Venetia remained
in port two hours, sailing at 5 o'clock.

hotel this evening following an altercation between the two men. Dr. R.
S. Devlin, son of the proprietor, who
was mixed up in the alTray, was also
shot and seriously Injured.
Sheppard, with hia wife and child,
had been staying at the hotel for several days. It Is said that he sustained concussion of the brain through

Suggestions   for    Lighthouse Board's Approval.

and Stronger Light���Will Exhibit
at Lethbridge.
The board of trade last evening en-!
dorsed a chapter of suggestions prepared under the careful supervision
of the publicity commissioner regard
ing the more adequate lighting of the
lower reaches of the Fraser river.
The suggestions are to be forwarded
to Captain J. W. Troupe, of the light
house board at Victoria, who has been
delegated by the provincial govern
ment to Tecommend for immediate installation ot lighting improvements on
the Fraser waterway.
Sindhead's Lightship.
The lightship on the Sandheads was
on no account to be moved from its
position, but in order to be of service in rough weather Its light needed
to be considerably strengthened. The
bell at the present time was practically useless and should be replaced
by a good fog siren operated by
power. This, it was anticipated,
wouid be of service not only to vessels using the Fraser river, but to
aU those passing up and down the
Gulf of Georgia,
Up the River.
Coming up the channel there are
two fixed white lights which cannot
be distinguished during the fishing
season from those of fishing boats;
blinkers would be a good substitute
for tbe present lights at this point,
and if they could be obtained should
be red on the starboard and green on
the port side coming In. This would
distinguish them from tbe electric
lights of Vancouver which are at
times ln line with them.
At. the northeast point of Westham island it was suggested that
tbere be fixed a red light about the
point where the cross marks are. Aa
this was tlie turning point in Woodward's slough the lights could be
seea both ways. Garry point light
might possibly be changed to green.
otlier red lights were also deslrubie
at other polnta In the slough as well
as at Halley's Point, Cottonwood
Point, near Ewen's cannery, Sunbury
(Bluff Point), and on Annacis island.

Local    Executive    Unable    to    Field
Team���Action Finds Popular
"There will be no game tomorrow
afternoon ln Vancouver Owing to the
local executive being unable to field
a team." This was the announcement
given to the Westminster Daily News
late last evening following a meeting
of the officers and executive of the
local lacroBse club.
The recent decision of the conrmis
sion in suspending George Rennie and
Tommy Gifford came as a little surprise to the locals and after debating
the question of fielding a team which
would have been, at the most, a man
shy, they found themselves with nothing else to do but to call off the game,
which under the circumstance3 will
be awarded to Vancouver.
This is said to be the first time In
the history of professional lacrosse
on the coast that a game has been
defaulted, and it was only at thc
eleventh hour that the local officials
found themselves forced to take such
a step. Although the Vancouver supporters will rave over this, also the
manager of the green Shirts, popular
opinion among the fans In the Royal
City aud district can safely be Baid
to favor such a move.
New Westminster was the home of
lacrosse long before Vancouver was
even thought of, and the period for
taking the brand of medicine that haa
been handed the locals during the
1 past few weeks by those in power in
the Terminal City was expected toi
be of short duration.

Captain Car-rod. of Oxford, won the
silver medal with an aggregate of
193 only, Lance ('orporal Trainer, of
the Toronto club, being one behind.
The Increased efficiency ia generally
shown by the fact that whereas a
score of 179 last year qualified for the
final atage, today Captain Andrews,
of Winnipeg, who made 184, had to
shoot off with 24 others for the last
ten places. Only four qualified outright for the final atage as against
eight last year and nine the year before, these being Captain Forest, of
Vancouver, aggregate 1S9, place sixteenth; Lieutenant Blackburn, of Winnipeg, aggregate 189, place nineteenth-, Sergeant Battershill, of Winnipeg, aggregate 1S6, place forty-

Mr. Wilkie said the wording of this
article absolutely mis-stated the object:

Councillor T. E. Marmont of Coquitlam called attention to a similar
article in the Coquitlam Star wherein
an interview was printed purporting
to be from Acting Reeve Nelson Long-
heed, ot Maple Ridge, who is alleged
to have stated tbat the bureau was
being formed for ulterior purposes.-

Brilliant    Function    in    Grounds    of
Windsor Castle���King Asks
for Borden.
London, July 19.���King George's
first garden party at Windsor Castle,
yesterday, was attended, a3 usual on
these occasions, by a large number
of distinguished gue3ts representing
society, the army, the church, the
navy, art, science, parliament, music
and the drama. About 10,000 Invitations were issued.
The Royal tea party, held in a tent
on the grounds, was attended by Premier Borden and his colleagues of the
Canadian cabinet, the Grand Duke
and Grand Duchess George of Russia
Prince George and Christopher ol
Greece, Grand Duke Michael of Rus
sia and his wife, Countess Torby anu
the French, Austrian and American
Canadians in Evidence.
Canadians were much in evidence,
among those present at the gardei
party, in addition to the ministers, be
ing Lord Strathcona, Senator J. Pope
Mr. J. J. Carrick, M. P, aud Mr. Ha
mar Greenwood, M. P.
His Majesty had scarcely taken hi
seat in the Indian tent, when he in
quired for Premier Borden, who hae.
not. however, arrived. It transpirec
that the premier's motor trip, in com
pany with Hon. L. P. Pelletier ant.
Hon. C, J. Doherty, had been attended
by slight delays. O". liis arrival, he
was immediately ushered into Hi:
Majesty's presence, accompanied b.
Colonial Secretary Harcourt.
The queen wore cream lace eve
satin with a touch of blue on the b,
dice, a rope of superb pearls and a ha

several labor members of Parliamen
in tweed suits and straw or fedon
hats, contrasting with officers of th<
Guards in blue undress uniforms.
Owing to the present suffragette ac

Dainty Touches That Sirrple Needh-
work Will Effect.
If your last summer parasols are
too dilapidated to use get them out
and study their possibilities. Some
whose covering is only soiled, not faded, may be cleaned and freshened by
embroidery or a covering of net or
chiffon; .others may need new tops.
The latter can be added at home by
a stilled needlewoman, but if distrustful of one's ability do the embroidery flrst and take the frame and
covering to a professional to be
Remember that the distance between
spokes may vary, so in removing ths
cover mark a certain spoke with a
thread and'number the sections from
that. In this way it will be easy to
get the new cover in its right position.
Cut each section from the old one,
allowing a trifle more for seams if ths
edges have been cut. Baste carefully,
nt to the frame, then sew the seams
firmly, and the cover is ready for its
embroidery  or further decoration.
This may be done before mounting
or alter the cover is firmly tacked to
the frame. When a design is detached
each section can be worked hefore the
panels are basted together. For braiding it is easier to mount the cover
than work with both hands, as on a
standard   frame.
A plain white linen parasol may be
given a decided air by working in the
panel* sprays of flowers in eyelet embroidery and outline for the seams or
entirely in solid embroidery. An effective parasol of white pongee has
bunches of wild carrot worked in the
panel.-.. Two sizes of sprays are used,
a bold one in every alternate panel,
with a singh flower on tha others.
Tne (lower panicles are worked in
French knot in heavy Roman Moss,
the fo'.isge done in slanting satin
A parasol of pale pray linen wns
given a line inch border of deep rose
sewed ou the outside of the parasol.
Tlie loinlng was concealed by n lino
of wild roses worked in several tones
of pink with pnle yellow centres anil
green stems.
Any linen or silk parasol could lie
changed by adding a similar bonier
in a deeper tone ol its own shade or
in a contrasting color. Harmonize the
two sections by a conventional design worked in self tones. A violet
linen cover could liave a deep purple
border and vines of clematis worked
in  purple  shades.

Wanted Silk Hats Abolished.
Some years ago an attempt was
mado by certain members ol the municipal council of Courteuil, Trance,
to make the wearing ol a top hat illegal, tlie grounds get forth for the
measure being that the sight of a silk
liat is a humiliation to those who
cannot afford to wear one, that it is
both unbeautifui and unnecessary as
an article of attire and also, chiefly,
because it is worn mostly by aristocrats who live by the sweat of the
poor and militated against equality
among citixens of the republic. A line
of 5 (fanes was the proposed penalty
for wearing ths condemned headgear,
but the topper" found friends at
9��wt, spd. the measur* **> rejected.
Ou account of the fact that the farmers of the Fraser Valley and the
surrounding agricultural districts are
paying strict attention to the" old'
motto, "Make Hay While the Sun
Shines," the attendance at the local
market was somewhat affected yesterday. All throughout the valley with
tho splendid weather of the last few
daya, haying has been going on at full
swing and a good many of the farmers find It necessary to neglect for
the time being that important function in the lives of all agriculturists
of attending the weekly market.
However, despite this adversity,
business was fair on yesterday's mart
with the supply ln most goods on a
parity with the demand.
The most important change in the
price list, was the not entirely unexpected drop In new potatoes from $2
and $2.25 to $1.75. This was due to
the unusually heavy supplies. The
quality of the spuds on hand was
very good and they appeared to be
well matured considering the time of
All other vegetables were In good
supply and with a demand almost
equal, prices ruled steady, with the
exception of cabbage, which lost one
Meats were received in good quantities and though the purchases for this
variety of market goods are scarce
during the summer, prices were well
One of the features of the day was
the unusually variety of summer flowers on showing which met a ready retail sale.
The poultry market was fairly ac
���tve. Chickens were freely offered but
the price was unaltered. Ducks gained from two to three cents, though
they were in the best demand. Eggs
found ready purchasers with large
j quantities on hand. The price showed
a hardening tendency, however, and
gained one cent per dozen wholesale
The flsh market was well stocked
with every variety, salmon and hall-
mt preponderating in the supplies
There was a good inquiry in this line
ilso, and no change occurred in thc

Since the time that the Supreme
Being, through the medium of Moses,
brought down epidemics and plagues
upon the pate of Pharoh and upon his
people, and when bacteria, boils and
the Angel of Death passed hand ln

man haB cherished a healthy respect
for the microbe.
We are told that Ignorance of the

Into two distinct classes���the good

If you then allow your thoughts to
linger on this theory you will become
astounded at the vast number and
kinds of bacteria which the two primary classifications contain.
Taking the bad ones flrst for Instance, there is the deadly tuberculosis and typhus, smallpox and scarlet fever, the sleeping sickness of the
tropics, loathsome leprosy, Asiatic
cholera, rheumatism, dingbats, pleurisy, toothache, the D. T.'s, measles,
corns, mumps (a swell affair), and the
thousand and one other ills and diseases of mankind, all caused by microbes. Then there ls the "booze," the
loafing habit, kleptomania, gossiping,
knocking arid more; all very contagious and with decidedly virulent
On the other hand there are epidemics of work, play, pleasure, exercise, religion, love (love, most contagious of all), eating, sleeping and
learning, all habits and diseases
brought about by the germs of good

Hypochondriacs who believe all the

with the desire for antiseptics, and
disinfectants. A program of their
daily life might be something like
this: Morning bath in ac. carb. ex

which will protect one against the
contraction of that most virulent

it, and on no account should the pols

Will Take Some Time to Evolve System of Imperial  Partnership.
London, July 19.���Speaking generally, the British Liberal press thinks
Premier Borden's declaration that the
overseas dominions Bhall have participation In the Imperial foreign policy
and naval control as conditional on
contribution, will take a long time to
work out. The Unionist pre3s takes
the view that this must be done at no
distant date.
The Chronicle, Liberal, declares:
"We have met the cost of defending.;
the dominions. No war in which the
British Empire hag been engaged
since Napoleonic times, with the single exception of the Boer war, has directly Involved any dominion In danger, trouble or expense. The balance
is on the side of the United Kingdom.
There is uo Immediate prospect of the
balance being seriously affected, and
we are under no compulsion to decide
quickly. According to some the
theory of the future is for formal relations between the Mother Country
and the dominions. Given the good
will which exists, and of which Mr.
Borden's speech was such excellent
evidence, time and circumstance will
work smooth much that now in the
light of abstract reasoning seems
rough and hard. Mr. Borden himself
put the problem, but hardly hinted at
the answer."
The Westminster Gazette, Liberal,
referring to Borden's statement that
the British Parliament is not truly Imperial, says: "We are glad to see the
idea thrown out and during the next
few years hope to see it In practice.
In thought and language self;govern-
'ng communities and British parliamentary institutions are developing
naturally In a federal direction, but a
definite scheme can hardly at present
be submitted by the United Kingdom."
The paper alleges aa a reason for
this that the overseas dominions
would Inevitably be outvoted in such
an Imperial Parliament. "But," It
adds, "sucb a condition may change
in the lifetime of children now living
here and ln Canada."
The Morning Post, Unionist, declares that "A system of Imperial
partnership must be devised which
will enable each to play Its part In
the settlement of questions of common Interest. No doubt progress towards this goal will be slow, -but any
attempt to force the pace could only
result ln disaster. But If the Instinct
and practice ot co-operation can be
encouraged the genius of the British
race will evolve a constiutlonal machinery best suited to its needs."
The Standard, Unionist, says:
"Apart altogether from the specific
>bjects of his visit. Premier Borden
:s an Incalculable beneflt to the Brush nation at this Juncture. We were
'n sad need of a tonic," lt says, "and
we have found the required stimulant
n the presence of a Canadian representing aB he does with splendid adequacy and abounding vigor the
ihrewd practical insicht and the enlarged patriotism of the greatest of
overseas dominions."

London, July 19.���What aome parliamentarians regard as a vital,
though hitherto overlooked tactor ln
the Panama Canal discussion la
brought up by Sir Edward Orey's remarks on the matter In the Houae of
Commons. It Is the existing Hew Zea

ment ot New Zealand to Impose retaliatory prohibitions and restrictions
upon the shipping of any foreign country -which imposes restrictions or prohibitions on British ships carrying
passengers or goods coastwise m that
foreign country. For the purposes of

Half   Million Feet of Lumber on  one
Eburne, July 19.���l'he unique spectacle of a half million feet of lumber
loaded on one scow Ib to be seen today at the Dominion Carboilneum
Company's plant, where the loading
has just been completed of one of the
"argest scows ever built in British
Columbia waters. The load is easily a
record one for British Columbia for It
is seldom indeed that much over a
���uarter of a million feet of lumber is
ever put on one scow.
This record load is valued at $30,000
and is all lumber that has been creo-
BOted at the carboilneum company's
plant and Is Intended for use in the
construction of the new government
wharf at Prince Rupert. Various dimensions of timber as well as heavy
planking are Included In the load,
which, by reason ot lta dimensions, allowed of cloBe stowage in both the
hold and on the deck df the scow.
The reason It was all put on the one
big scow was to facilitate the long
tow to Prince Rupert, which will be
commenced In a couple of days.
Oakland, July 1��.���Six women, one
of them Mrs. II. O. Brink, the wife of

The recent outbursts of the suffragettes in the British Isles are not calculated to do the good that their misguided authors claim for them. The
eables for the past few days have
boen humming with stories of assaults upon cabinet ministers, and attempted 'acts which are of the ni03t
���extreme and revolutionary order.
In fairness to the great body of
sensible women in the British Isles,
it may be well here to point out that
"the suffragettes are in no way to be
-confounded with the suffragists. For
some flfty years now women known
by the latter name have been quietly
agitating and working for the attainment of a vote upon the same conditions as it is given to mon. They
have many good reasons for their
case, but although the suffrage has
been adopted in certain of the oversea
dominions and in some foreign countries, there are many difficulties lying
in the path of those who order the
destinies of the Empire in London before the vote can satisfactorily be
given to the women of the British
Within the past decade there has
-sprung up from the ranks of those
women who desire the vote a section
who say that while in sympathy with
the older organization in its aims,
they do cot approve of the constitutional methods adopted by that body
to ensure the desired en.i. They
point to the agitation, the wheat stack
burning, carriage window smashing
which won for the agricultural laborer
his right to vote, and It is upon
similar linea_o.f violence that these
misguided women have curried on a
- campaign which in the minds of the
majority of sensible people U calcu-
' lated to defeat the very object at
which they aim. Beginning with a
desire for publicity for the movement
it has now grown to a fanatical resolution to stick at nothing to force the
hands of the government.
There are three or four different
���societies in the British Isles working
for woman's suffrage, and at least one
women's society of anti-suffragists. It
is certain that the dastardly acts ol
*he revolutionary portion of the favorers of the vote for women are nowhere more Btrongly condemned than
among those patient women who are
working soberly and sensibly for what
they believe will end in more influence to women in the affairs of the
nation, and, it is to hs hoped, more
sood to the whole body politic.
Major-General Mackenzie, the executive head of the Militia, commented
recently in Winnipeg on the fact that
many volunteers drop out of the force
after a single year. This is contrary
.to law. A militiaman, once enlisted,
is supposed to be bound for three
years. As a matter of fact, no attempt is made to maintain this proviso of the Militia Act. Commanding
officers feel the futility of trying to
keep unwilling men in the ranks. At
the same time, tlie loss pf such men,
and the disproportionately large number of raw recruits, militates greatly
.against the efficiency of the force.
'One -available remedy is higher pay.
Another is some species of compulsory military service, such as the Australians and the New Zoftlanders have
adopted. Hut while everybody on the.
street seems to admit that there are
good arguments for the latter, everybody is afraid to come oul for it. Mr.
J. A. M. Aikins, M. P., supplied a sample attitude recently. Referring to
what General Mackenzie had said, Mr,
Aikins remarked that he did not urge
4:onipuiaory training, but:
'���Hitherto we have been depending
Upon Kn&land for our protection from
external Iocs. Tlie time has come
when wo must depend upon ourselves.
Unskilled individuals, however brave,
in un unorganized mass in the face of
an enemy means their easy destruction, net, country's defence, Therefore, I would like to see every boy
and every young man receive physical
jlrill and proper military instruction."
Apart altogether from the question
��>f defence. The Journal's idea is that
a co.rtsi.iu proportion of compulsory
military training In Canada would be
a good tiling for the Canadian people
physically, mentally and morally, as it
haa been to a notable degree for the
people of Germany.- Ottawa Evening
and June, is J4.861.70* more than the
amount collected In May and June,
1911, the increase being no less than
42 per cent.
The most interesting and important thing about these figures is the
plain and unanswerable proof they
give that the West is carrying its full
share of the burden of tariff taxation
which provides the flow of revenue Into the Dominion treasury. At the
ports of entry in the five provinces of
Eastern Canada, the total collections
of customs duties in May and June
amounted to $10,908,171, as against
$7,988,834, in May and June of last
year, an increase of 36.5 per cent. At'
the ports of entry of -the four Western provinces, the total was $5,281,-
721, as'against $3,339,350 in May and
June of last year, an increase of 58.2
per cent.
It must further be borne in mind,
of course, that a very considerable
proportion of the imports at Halifax,
Montreal, Toronto, and other ports of
entry in the East, to say nothing of
imports at Vancouver, is for consumption in the Prairie Provinces, and
the duties on those imports is paid by
the West. Of the imports brought in
at the ports of entry in these Provinces, namely, from Winnipeg to Edmonton, it is safe to say that all but
a negligible proportion, are consumed
in the West.
Itl is thus manifest, beyond possibility of question, that the people of
Western Canada are doing their full
share in the way of providing the prolific revenue raised by customs taxation. This fact is one which is to be
insisted on, in view of the Eastern
lectures which are st'U occaslcnall>
administered ti- the West by journals
and speakers in the East who talk
largely about all that the East haa
done for the West and accuse the
West of ingratitude and discontent
and unwillingness to bear Its just
share of the national burdens and tr.
repay the East. It is true, of course,
that, scores of millions of dollars were
paid in subsidies fcr the building of
railways for the development of Western Canada; but all that money was
borrowed by the Dominion, and con
stitutes a part of the public debt of
Canada, in the carrying of which the
people cf Western Canada are bearing a full sharp.
The 31.864,054 acres of land given to
the railways, by which the Provinces
of British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba have profited,
have been provided by Manitoba (3,-
566,977 cares), Saskatchewan (15,177,-
063 acres), and Alberta 113,120,014
acres). The exemption of railway
property from taxation amounts to an
immense total of money out of the
pockets of the people of the west.
And yet the railway rates levied upon the people of the West are higher
than the rates in the Kast. though the
cost cf operation in the West is proved by^the railways' own figures to be
less tlian in the East and tlie traffic
per mile greater.
The time is past for Eastern lectures to the West for i(,s ingratitude
to thc East. The WesMj h-arintf lf=
full share of the nationaVnurde:.s, and
asks no more than a square deal. Re
verting to the above-cited figures of
customs collections, it I i to be noted
that wliile the census figures give the
five Eastern Provinces a total poula-
tion more than three times that of thr
four Western Provinces, the total cus
toms due-i collected at the ports of
entry in tlie four Western Provinces
is more than half the amount of the
total collected at the ports in the
Eastern Provinces, to say nothing of
the proportion of the latter total
which is paid by the West.���Manitoba

World Believes Imminent Conflict Between England and Germany
London, July 19.���The London Statist's expressed opinion that the phenomenal decline in consols ls due to
"tlft?s universal belief at home and
abrokd that war Is inevitable between
this country and Germany," ha3 caused much discussion in financial circles.
The weakness in Britain' s premier
securities was again marked yesterday, the close being below the final
flgure of Wednesday. The Statist's
editor, Sir George Parish, has been
investigating the situation in Berlin,
and in other German cities so that
what his journal says carries weight.
Here are extracts from the paper:
"Whether the world judges Germany too harshly or not, the world
unquestionably believes that her navy
is intended against this country, and
while that belief exists it is vain to
look for a material recovery either in
consols or In German securities.
"Germany and England are two of
the richest countries in the world. If
we except France and the United
States, tliev are of all the great powers the richest. Yet the premier securities of both stand lower tban
those of any other great government.
"It is clear that the depreciation of
Germany's threes ls far greater than
it could possibly be when an actual
crash is not imminent, were it not
that other influences than mere
money market movements are sending
it down, and the other influences are
the universal fear that a war with
the British Empire is sooner or later
"Thus we find that the two state?
in Europe which stand first in enterprise and world-wide trade are the
very two whose securities stand lowest, and the only explanation of the
phenomenon is that it is believed at
home and abroad tliat they are rushing to a conflict with one another
wy'ch must entail immense losses
and pile up debt enormously, however otherwise it may end.
"What must be the cost to Germany of a life and death struggle with
the British Empire?
"When one thinks of all that, it is |
not a matter for surprise, such as is
often and so widely expressed, that
the premier securities of both countries stand as low as they do at present."

London, July 19.���A correspondent
of the Times telegraphing from Verin,

"The Royalist ris'.ng in Portugal

strength to strike a very severe blow
and if active sympathy had been
forthcoming in Portugal itself, their
attempt to restore tlie monarchy
might well have been successful. Out

Both attempts miscarried.
The Royalists have plenty of ammunition made in Toledo, their cartridges bearing the Toledo mark.
Their guns are from the Spanish government works at Oveldo.
"Indeed the arms traffic which has
been going on through Spanish ports
lately has assumed serious proportions. Last Saturday a barge was run
ashore near Corunnn. Fifteen motor
cars were hastily laden with cart
ridges and no fewer than 40,000
rounds of ammunition were left behind in the boat. These cartridges
were bought In Toledo by Paraguayans for export to South America
They were escorted to the coast by a
Spanish artillery oflicer.
"The Royalists have plenty of
funds. Twenty thousand pesetas are
lying at the railway station at Agull-
larey near Valencia."

Senior League  Lacrosse���North  Vancouver Baseballcrs Come  with
Fine Record.
The best amateur sporting card that
has been offered to local lacrosse and
baseball fans will be staged on the
park diamond this afternoon, the first
encounter starting at 3 o'clock. This
will be a senior league game between
the Royals and the V. A. C.
Manager Grimston is confident of
his team making a better showing
than their last game against the
champions and has selected the following to represent the city: Keary,
goal; W. Patchell, point; Cotton,
cover point; Cooper, L. Gregory and
Battson, defence field; Hume, centre;
F. Smith, L. Sangster, C. Smith,
(louttH and Swanson, home fleld.
Spares, Sclater, Gilley, R. Sangster.
The baseball game between the
Westminsters and the North Vancouver team wlll commence following
the lacrosse contest.
The North Vancouver outfit are said
to have cleaned up anything the Vancouver teams have in the amateur
line and hearing of the defeat of the
Clovers by the locals sonic two weeks
ago, promptly challenged them to a
With Horn and Dwyer as lhe battery, and the fielding and batting positions well taken care of, there appears no reason why the locals
Bhould not win out. One price of admission will take caro of both games
and if the sports enthusiasts desire
the amateur game to be fostered in
New Westminster It is up to them to
journey up tp the park and give their
support to the venture.
Lost Out by Six to One
Fancy  Forest Stunt
Many Errors.  ���
Horn    Did
In spite of the great heat, the skilled operatives known as the Balmorals, last evening succeeded in getting
the trench another foot deeper and
hope before long to get down to the
drainpipe level.
There Is no stopping the Moose
team in the city league and their defeat at the hands of the Millside uine
last Sunday appears to have been an
Incentive to wallop both the Maple
LeaTs and  tbe Balmorals.
Mr. Horn, although modest. Is some
twlrler, and had tho Bals swatting
tne clear atmosphere at Queens park
last evening wilh the effect of an
electric fan.   The final score was 6-1.
Dlgnan came back to life as a twirl
er, but failed to stop the slugging tae
tics of the herd, although that was
mainly due to the part of the fielders
in allowing errors galore.
It looked as If the Bals meant bus
Iness In the first stanza when Williams slammed out a three bagger
wilh two down, but Sherblno bit the
dust iu his endeavors to bring his
mun across. Errors accounted for the
first tallies. Chaput getting first followed by Huhnke, who hit the pill
one awful crack. The outfielder mis-
Judged the ball and before he could
recover, both runners were aafe at
home. Both moundsmen tightened up
until the fifth Inning, when the Moose
started a batting rally which resulted
In two more runs being sent over.
In the sixth, WiWama for the Bals
scored their only tally by some pretty
base pilfering. The herd came back
ln the seventh, Chaput cracking out
a three bagger which scored Graham
and Curran. Chaput however got
nailed on third by Glass, who held
on to the ball. 'Tis to laugh. A double play also featured this Inning.
D'gnan picking up a bunt, throwing to
Wlti'r.TTis to Shernlno
The Rah made a dying effort in the
last and got men on second and third,
but Dlgnan performed tho "Casey at
the bat" stunt by fanning out. The
new umpire, Sid Malcolmson, acted
his part In one, two, three order, and
It is to hls credit that tho game -was
finished In quick time.
The new recruits of Manager
Maiden's failed miserably, and unless
lie does R little better at scouting, the
standing of the finis will bo close to
the ?'-ro mark before the soaaon ends.

Butteries: Dlgr.an n-id Manspn:
Horn and Dwyer. Umpire, Sfd Malcolmson.
It is only a few weeks ago that all
the Vancouver papers were yelling
their heads off in an attempt to persuade the B. C. L. A. to change the
fleld rules which would allow a team
to fleld twelve men at all times during
a game. It was only natural that the
Westminsters objected to this and refused to sanction any change on the
grounds that the move is just being
tried out in the Eastern leagues,
where theje is a great difference of
opinion. The following capping from,
the Ottawa Evening Journal touching on this subject may be of interest
to fans on tbe Coast:
"The N. L. U. and the Big Four
have both adopted the fining system
as opposed to the old rule which seut
an offending player off the fleld for a
certain time as a punishment for Infringement of the rules. The old way
still looks to be the best. Under the
present rules a team may send' in a
player or ordinary calibre with instructions to "get" dne of the stars
of the opposing team, and they may
have a man much better than him In
reserve. Therefore, that team does
not suffer by the banishment of their
player, and they may easily pay his
flne. Why not have the old penalty
rules with the fines added?"
The   Big   Four.
The Big Four are not making as
much noise these days aB when the
new organization was formed early In
the spring. Qne can still faintly remember the loud tones of the respective managers of the four team3
proudly boasting that within a few
weeks from the opening game, the eld
N. L. U. would pass out of existence.
The only teams in the league that
have been able to draw any decent
crowds are the Torontos and the Nationals. It needs several thousands of
fans to keep the former on a paying
basis, and by the time the end of the
Beason comes, Manager Fleming, the
mau who tried to pinch Cliff Spring
and Len Turnbull, will readily see
that running a lacrosse team and a
street car railway system are two entirely different propositions.
The Nationabi, being composed of
French-Canadians, naturally draw big
crowds in Montreal, to the detriment
of one George Kennedy. The Irish-
Canadians and the Tecumsehs are
having a hard row and It Is costing
them a pretty pile to stay with the
Big Four during Its first, and perhaps, its last year of existence.
Lacrosse Vs. Baseball.
Phil Taylor, writing in the Toronto
publication, "Jack Canuck," speaks
for the revival of lacrosse, as opposed
to baseball. He points out quite correctly, that any Canadian cities in organized baseball are In second, third
and fourth-rate leagues. They can
never enter the major leagues, where
the best baseball Is seen.
Now, in lacrosse, we may see the
best In the country, even if the town
does only boast of a few thousand of
inhabitants. Take, for instance. New
Westminster. Any fan who has followed the game in the East, is well
conversant with the doings of the Salmon Bellies. They have followed the
movements cf the many teams that
mve packed their grips and boarded
the train to go Weat in quest of the
Minto Cup.
One hears that the national game is
gradually dying out, both in the East
and on the Coast. While that may be
a little too strong, there Is a cortain
amount of truth to it. Lacrosse flourished until the owners of the teams
began' to tone the plays down to a
business level. Americans in the athletic fleld, have been charged with
that Insane desire to win. These
charges pale into Insignificance beside tho unsportmanlike tactlc3 of the
Vancouver Lacrosse Club In their efforts to retain hold of the Mlnto Cup.
There has always been a suspicion
among the Royal Ctty fans that the
Terminal Ctty crowd have not acted
abo've board on many occaslous, and
events that have taken place within
the past three weeks, simply bear out
these past assertions.
When a record breaking crowd
wended Its way to Queen's Park at
the opening game, and a large one to
the first Vancouver game, lt demonstrated to the owners of the two
teams that lacrosse is not dead. Recent events, however, have opened
tho eves of the public, and unless Mr.
Ccn Jones take a tumble and plays
tho game on tlie Bquaro, his rich
holdings tn the Vancouver Lacrosse
Cb-b will brt on a par with a wild cat
gftid mine in Manitoba.
Four Canadians Qualify    for    King's
Prize at Bisley���Vancouver
Soldier's Record.
Kings Will Race Today���Old-
field to Lower Records.
Barney Oldfield and the speed kings
who are to take part in the racing
program at Minoru park today are all
set for the big doings.
Oldfield and the big Christie will
be a thrilling combination when they
get together at the track. The big
car has shown it is the fastest in the
world and Barney is just now driving
better than ever before. He expects
to cut down his new Paciflc northwest
record made at Portland of a mile in
Bisley   Camp,   July    19.���Shooting
took place today ln the second stage, 52 seconds on' a dirt track.
of the King's prize, ten shots each at!    Lew   Heinemann   has   his
300 and 600 yards, the N. R. A. silver '��� Henry Benz alonR'
medal going to the top score.
Of the fourteen Canadians qualified
for the second stage four men went
through to tbo final, Sergt. Battershill and Lieut. Blackburn, both of
Winnipeg; Capt. Forrest of Vancouver and Lieut, Forster of Ottawa. Captain Andrews of Winnipeg is tied with
24 others for the last ten places and
will shoot off tonight.
Last year eight Canadians shot in
the final stage, and one of them, Pet.
Clifford of Toronto, carried off the
King's prize. In the shoot-off Capt.
Sclater, Vancouver, won his way into
the final stage of the St. George's
Challenge Vase tomorrow.
Weather today was cloudy with a
cool wind and conditions were tricky
when at 3 o'clock this morning shooting opened at the first, or 300-yard
range of the second stage of the
King's prize. Among the Canadians,
honors fell to Capt. Forrest of Vancouver, whose target was but one
short of the possible, and 49 added to
his 99 in the flrst stage gave him an
aggregate of 148. where he was tied
with three others at second top score.
Sergt. Ommundsen and two others
made 148 up to this point.
When the men moved to the longer
range their shooting was closely fol
lowed, tor if the leading half dozen
could hold their own it meant that
tbey entered the final stage with a
substantial lead.
This car is of a
type which has made the German firm
famous and has turned up wonderful
speed. Helny is expecting a hard
race from "Wild Bill" Fritsch, who will
drive a Clno In a match against him.
The winner of the match will then
meet Oldfield in a run.
The officials at thc track are preparing to comfortably handle the
largest crowd of its history. When
Oldfield. Heinemann and Fritsch were
announced much interest was shown,
but this haB been growing rapidly

rector of Cavendish, Suffolk, the sum
of ��1 per annum. This ws-i to be
devoted to the provision r.f lift-cross
buns for distribution aninnsst the
Sunday school cltiMren and their
teachers on Good Friday morning'.
Then there was the "Turton Char-

Under this it was fof upward* of two
centimes the practice to distribute
buns. cake, and ale to children on
Good Friday live, and rye to poor
persons on the day itself. Some time
ago the parishioners decided to discontinue the practice. Instead of being spent in that way, the income
of the fund is now all used in the
purchase of flour, whieh is distributed
amongst the poor on the day before
Gocd Friday.
In a small country parish in Herefordshire each boy and girl attending
the Church of Kngland day school is

been enthusiastic about the Gurney-Oxford.'*
" What are its good points ?"
" Well, the best is that it cooks and bakes like a dream.
I never tasted such golden brown biscuits or such flakey
pastry as my Gurney-Oxford turns out, and roasts,
fowls and puddings are always a success."

u My dear, it's simplicity itself. The Gurney Economizer, which you cannot get on any other range,

uniformly heated. You l:now what that meaxs���biscuits,
bread, roasts, not one half overdone and the other half
