Vancouver, Aug. 29���"Give us what
we want ln False creek and we will
build a million and a half dollar
station for you lft Vancouver." This
waB the ultimatum presented by
Colonel A. D. Davidson this evening
before the olty council,on behalf of
the Canadian Northern 'Railway company. ,
The plana of the company are that
the city present them with 150 acres
of land ln False creek. Part of this
land tbe city obtained through a bylaw ratllled by the voters a few
weeks ago. - The remainder the c'ty
would have to obtain and In return
the C. N. R. would give a maximum
sum of $COO,000.
That or Westminster.   ��� .
In the event of Vancouver turning
the proposition down, Colonel Davidson stated that the station and terminals would be built in New Westmlnater or some other place cn the mainland.
He desired the city council to treat
the company well. He explained It
was a Canadian line owned by Canadians and running across thc whole
of the Dominion. The company would
build a bulkhead at Main street, and

it would allow any competitive compnny to use their tracks to enter
Mr. E. P. Davi3. K.C. was also
present representing the C. N. R.
After little discussion' the mntter was
referred to the" railways and brldjes

By   Japanese   Fisherman���Is Attracting Much Attention In the

���Bigger Cpase Allotted at
One of the largest and finest seals
that have ever oeen seen on the
Fraser river was caught in the net
of a Japanese salmon Usher on Wed
nesday, and was secured and brought
Into the city yesterday morning.
Immediately on Its arrival In Westmlnater a well known local realty
broker purchased the animal from Its
captor and donated it to the city zoo
at Queens park.
The seal ls a splendid specimen of
an animal In the opinion of all those
who have see.t it, and It has got its
brother In Stanley park beat In flfty
different ways. It is of unusual size
ati{l must weign in the neighborhood
of 200 pounds.
The animal was taken out to the
park yesterday afternoon and lodged
in the swan poiyid. It appeared quite
at home in its new quarters and dis
ported Itself in a manner that delighted the hearts of even the caretaker-.
Although It was only Ideated In the
zoo late yesterday a good many people were out to view it and it Is
certain that the animal will be the
leading attraction to all visitors at
lhe park in future.

On the motion of Mr. Holme it was

The chairman reported that he had

but It appeared that the architect objected to that color. An aesthetic
discussion followed aud the matter
Pan left to tbe secretary to arrange
with the architect.
Mr. Whiting reported progress on
the subject of the district e\ htbtt at
the Provincial Exhibition, New Westmlnater, at which they had taken
fourth place last year.
An arrangement was made with
Mr. Whiting whereby that gentleman
would perform all the work connected with displaying the district exhibit at New Westminster fair, on tho
basis of-60 per cent, if they won a
prise, or $75 for outlays lt unsuccessful. I
The secretary emphasied the fact
that it was only five weeks until the
date ot their own fair day and urged
the appointment of the special prize
collectors Immediately. As a consequence, the president, George Aider-
son, and Messrs Whiting and Baker
were appointed.
The flrst hearing of Walter Walsh
and Alice Walsh, alias Alice Miller,
alias Maud Adams, who were brought
from Toronto on Wednesday evening will come up before Magistrate
Edmonds in police court this morning. Owing to the fact that the
woman had broken down during her
trip acioBS the continent and was in
uo shape to face a preliminary hearing, ihe* prisoners wero not brought,
up yesterday morning.
It is understood that this case and
that against Charles Dean, all of
whom are suspected in connection
with the Bank of Montreal robbery
which took plaee in this city last
September, are entirely  different.
Although thcorovu solicitors have
made no move as yet to show their
hand in regard to the evidence they
have prepared against Walsh and bis
companion, it is understood that a
charge cf having stolen money ln
possession will be preferred asainst
the two.
When arrested In Toronto tbe sum
of $.��020 in Bank of Montreal notes
was found in their possession besides
$7000 of American currency.
The courts In the States usually
open In September following the
summer vacation, and -news is expected any day afterwards in connection
with the movement apalnst Mac-
Namara to have him extradited to
New Westminster and join his alleged accomplice, Charles Dean.
The same applies to the Detroit
case where Martin Powell and a man
named Dalrymple are confined ln jail
awaiting proceedings towards extradition.

Chilliwack Scheme Prevented���Shortage of Flacs���Ladies Volunteer
Definite Information that the arrival of tbe Uuke of Connaught ln
Westminster could not be changed
from 12 o'clock was contained In n
wire received by Acting Mayor Oray
yesterday afternoon. Tne telegram
stated: "The Governor-General wil
reach New Westminster about 12 or
12.30 on Sept. 21, and will leave again
at 5 p. m." Now that the time of
the arrival of His Royal Highness i.-
known arrangements for the reception nf the Royal party will be gono
ahead  with.
A meeting of the Royal committee
which has in hand the matter, wll!
be held in the Board of Trade' rooms
this afternoon at 3 o'clock, when a
program will be drawn up, and committees will be appointed to carry
out whatever plans are decided on.
The matter of preparing a decoration scheme ls progressing satisfactorily.
At a meeting of the Women's Coun
oil and affiliated societies yesterday
afternoon the ladies of the city generously acceded to the request of the
reception committee that they take
in hand the manufacturing of peo-J
nants and flags.
it was found impossible to securs
a Royal Standard to fly above the
pavilion or stand on which His Royal
ilighnesB will stand at Queens park,
either in Vancouver or Westminster
and the services of Miss A. Bland,
an expert needlewoman with Vear*
ot experience both in the Old Country and In the United States, have
been obtained to manufacture the
flag of the British Royalty.
lt was also found impossible to find
anything like the needed supply of
Union Jacks aud other national flags
either In Vancouver or Westminster,
where all the wholesale and retail
houses were visited, so that the.-r-
will have to be manufactured.
As the stay of the Royal party in
the city will be of such short durat-
tlon lt is hardly probable that tb
provincial and civic authorities, will
make the elaborate preparations to:

It is practically certain now that
the proposed trip of His Royal Highness to Chilliwack to open the agri
cultural exhibition there will be cut
out entirely. The city" officials of
that place were notified by phone
yesterday of the telegram that was
received from the Duke's secretary
and it was Intimated that this practically prevents the carrying out the

London. Aug. 2��-The Cana-N
dlan premier, Robert L. Borden, wlll leave England tomorrow, bound for home.
The sea still furnishes the world
with lots ot romance. The latest la
from Victoria where the crew of the
windjammer Polaris delayed the departure ot the ship 24 hours just for
tbe sake of a few rounds of drink. It
happened thus:
The word had been passed among
the crew of the schooner that the
James Johnson, the barkentlne which
lett the Fraser Mills on Wednesday
evening, was preparing to race the
Polaris from Cape Flattery to Australia.   Both are loaded with lumber.
With thoughts ot a thrilling race
and also more thoughts of going for
75 days perhaps without setting foot
on terra flrma, which meant ne more
swigs In the pub, the hands started
to celebrate Wednesday evening, with
the result that her captain when
ready to set sail, found no crew
aboard. With the tide fast going out,
and no crew In sight the boat was
forced to waste another 24 hours before the tugs could take her In tow.
This delay allowed the James Johnson to c.rceo up to her rival and both
boats will leave the straits about the
same time.
The captain of the Polaris still
claims that his charge has the edge
on the barkentlne and although she
will have to sail a few hundred miles
further���the distance trom Brisbane
to Sydney���he has made the bet that
hla boat will be the first sighted on

Parr, Cloverdale, was forced open
from the rear and his safe blown to
pieces with nitro-glycerine or some
other powerful explosive.
There was no money in the safe,
as Mr. Parr ts careful to deposit his
cash dally ln the local bank ano

gathered In subsequently. Indeed a
previous experience of the yeggmen.
about a year ago, caused Mr. Parr to
paste a typewritten notice on the
safe to "those desirous of Investigating the contents of this safe���it is
unnecessary to blow It open.' The
combination ls there before you."
The noise of the explosion awoke
tl��e whole village. Mr. Parr, who
lives on the other side of the street
saw a light and' three men at the
snore door. He dred three shots
which passed through the store window, but otherwise took no apparent
effect. 1
The robbers returned the fire and
made good their e3cape. It Is said
Mr. Fournier, baker, also fired at
them. It is suspected they had an
auto near by and that they are the
same gang as were concerned in the
Chilliwack outrage  the  night before.
Constable Matheson, immediately
after the alarm, instituted a hunt for
the miscreants and notified the surrounding districts and police, but to
date nothing farther has been learned of the burglars.

A meeting took place yesterday
morning between the finance committee of the city council and Mr. E.
H. Heaps and Mr. H. Schaake, when
the final details of the agreement between the company and the city
were discussed. The company wishes
to lease from the city 697 feet of

rental of $1742.25. The company also desires the option of purchasing
the property at the end of live years
for $69,700, or (104,550 if purchased I
within seven years, and if the com- J
pany desires at the end of ten years

they desire to purchase, the whole
matter will be left to arbitration.

Fears were erprcsscd that the egg

Ottawa from Western Tour-
Many  Discrepancies.
Ottawa, Aug. 29���Mr. R. S. Lake,
of tho public service commission, ha3
returned from a tour of the west,
through to the coast, investigating
conditions ln the outBide sorvice.
La3t winter a deputation waited on
commission and asked that they
niako a thorough Inquiry Into the
rcestion of salaries and general conditions of work In the west, and Mr.
Lake's mission has been to carry out
the promise made at that time.
Mr. Lake visited all the principal
cities, through to Victoria and made
a first-hand inquiry as to cost of living, salaries and the general state of
the service, He found that the government and particularly the post office department had serious difficulty
ln keeping their employees, owing to
the low wages.
In one city no less than 70 per
cent, of the men ln the post office
have resigned during the past year.
It Is almost Impossible to secure efficient men and when they are secured, to hold them. Private corporations pay much larger salaries and
openings are numerous all over the
Mr. LaVo also found that theie was
considerable discrepancy in tbe salaries paid between the different departments. Some also make an extra allowance for the cost of living
in the west, while others do not.
Mr. Lake will prepare a report,
wbjch he will present to the government an the subject and will make a
number o" recommendations looking
towards a general reorganization add
Improvement of the Western Civil
service. .

authcrked the erection of a jfuWt

for this branch of agriculture. The
principal grower is the B. C. Hop
Company, which has about 250 acres
in cultivation tli another forty acres
are brought to their present state of
plenty by Mr. Hulbert, who bas been
ln the business here for several
years. A good average crop ls promised this year. Off Mr. Hulbert's
fields a ton an acre Is expected and
his are an early English variety,
with which the picking starts.
Indians are now congregating at
Sardis from many parts of the province. The B. C. B. R. has had to run
special trains to carry them to Sardis.
The hops grown at Sardis go all
ovei1 Canada and occasionally shipments have been sent to England. A
duty of 16 cents a pound effectually
stop's their entry Into the United
States. There is not enough beer
brewed in British Columbia to take
the crop of ten acres and hop growers declare regretfully that less and
leas are hops being used and the
beer so much more impoverished.

British  Press  Slates  Suffragettes for
Disregarding   Laws   of
London,   Aug.   20.���Scotland   Xard '
detectives have'teen detailed special-,
ly to protect   Premier   Borden   from j
suffragette molestation during the remainder of his stay here.
The newspapers are wholly con- j
gratulatory to Premier Borden on the
manner ln which he handled the suf
fragette deputations. The Pall Mall
Gazette says waylaying the Dominion
Premier here and threatening hlm
with the consequences of withholding
woman suffrage in his own land is a
rather consummate piece of rudeness
but probfblv the suffragettes have
discovered that the laws of hospitality are man-made and accordingly re
quire breaking. Canada will not be
inconsolable for the cIsbs of Immi
grants whom tbe Women's Politics'
Union threaten to send elsewhere.
The Liverpool Post declares thai
the suffragettes met their match and
received a well-deserved snub. The
Post adds that a charitable view of
these childish suggestions fs that an
aggressive campaign has entered on
Its dotage.
Th�� Westminster Gazette describe?
Premier Borden's reply as spirited
and emphatic and says that the meth
od ln which he was approached was
scarcely courteous. Certainly the
foollslr burglars' or highwaymen'?
methods will advance no good to the
cause of women's suffrage.
It Is somewhat noteworthy that.the
Manchester Guardian, which, while
deploring militancy, has championed
the cause of woman suffrage, makes
no comment.

adjective "Canadian" has not the
spl ond id connotation of the adjective
"British." What is important is the
direction in which Canada is moving.
Britain's opportunities of service
"for the welfare of humanity, foi^the
advancement of civilization, and for
the peace of the world," as Mr. Borden so well puts it, have been Infinitely greater than Canada's. But
Canada's opportunities are Increasing
daily. Every year we are touching
more closely and at more points the
other nations of the world. Through
our commerce, through our literature
and art, through the thousand and
one mental and spiritual influences
in which Canadian nationality finds
expression and reacts upon other na-
. tions. shall we strive towards the
J dominant moral Qualities, or shall we
be satisfied to see other nations, perhaps less blessed by Providence than
ourselves, surpass us in wort;, and ef
fort "for the welfare of hfirnanity, for
tae advancement of civilization?"
The City Council has at last got
the Duke of Connaught to define ths
hours of his yjgjt very exactly, namely from psott tpt 5 o'clock on the
afternoon of September 21. This result of' many,i telegrams and counter
telegrams is hardly a subject for congratulation. The City Council and
its servants have labored and they
have broughtrtoityi' their mouse. In

The City jfojfip}! made its first
���jnistake when it refused to accept the
date Bet apart for New Westminster
and tried to have it altered so a3 to
allow the Duke to attend the eshibl-
-lion. No doubt this mistake was
made from ignorance rather than as
.a deliberate breach of good taste, but |
if the council had taken advice from
anyone who knew the slightast tiling
about etiquette w^pre royalties concerned, it would ''have known that
royal invitations are in the nature of
commands and- that the itinerary of
a member of a royal house is not
changed to: puWfcdK small western
city any moire .fcttjuv it iH to conform j
with the convenience cf a European

trying to alter the hour of arrival
even after listing M expressly stated
in answer to'vter6tiier fatuous enquiry.        .   -.    ' . .
In these cases there is only one
course to pursue and that is to accept at once th^,da{e set apart, draw-

in Canada, and New Westminster baa j

Mayor Mayberry, of Moo.e JaV asking that between 200 and 300 laborers be sent to that city to take the
place of those who deserted work foi
the harvest fields. In order to obtain*
those least likely to be attracted by
the harvesting and threshing, Mayor
Mayberry asked for foreigners. He
stated in his message to the City
Hall here that the case waa urgent,
and the labor was needed at once.
Mayor Flnlay placed the case before

Famous German Savant Is Included

London. Aug. 29.���The. late Mikado
will no doubt be made a god, in ac
cordance with the customs of the
Japanese religion, which is based on
ancestor worship. It would, however
be a mistake to suppose that only mi-
kados reach that exalted state.
Robert Koch, for instance, the late
German bacteriologist, is a god, too
Visitors to Tokio can see his temple

his hair fixed in its stone founda

unchangeable part of "a man's personality, hence it is preserved In all
cases when a person is raised to the
status of a god.
How greatly Koch wa:i admlrpd by
the Japanese, even in his lifetime, is
shown by the following Incident:

Nothing  Doing  Says  Manager ; Gray
When Eastern Referees Are
"New Westminster and the Salmon
Bellies are prepared to defend the
Minto cup against alf comers, Just as
they did during the three previous
years when they had hold of the silverware."
This statement was given out b'
Manager Gray yesterday when the
question of referees was mentioned.
"The referee question siiould not
enter into the deal whatever," he
went on. "When the team went back
east in 1308 no one In the west heard
about any suggestion from the Sham
recks that we bring along a man with
us who would officiate. The Westminster team had to play the cup
games with an eastern olficial in
charge, and its the same today.
"Ws will stand for a suitable
-etene froi., sav Vancouver, Victoria
or 'iii'/where elae in this province,
but yl>pn they mention bringing a
man tilong with them 'notb'ng doing.'
"Mv opinion of Kav.r.itugh as an
offic'al is of the best, bnt he was
brought out from Montreal to referee
the Vancouver-Westminster game?
solely on account of his leing a disinterested oPioial, i.e. not having any
connection with each cf the two
towns where the professional game
is ' 'iy$d In British Columbia.
"There are many good men who
cm rfficlate lacrosse games out here
art! believing In the home ' grown
product, wc are prepared to stand by
our guns."

This hides the knots.
Do uot use n needle In stringing. If
