Municipal and Civic Bodies
Meet t*t Discuss Sapperton Sewerage Scheme.
Engineer    Blackman    Explains���Suggested Tax' on Property���Government Lends Aid.
While the representatives of the
Burnaby councll wbo attended tbe
joint conference with the Westminster board of civic administrators at
the city hall yesterday morning to
discuss the important question of the
Sapperton sewerage scheme, did not
appear particularly enthusiastic about
co-operating, the consensus cf opinion as expressed by the municipal
visitors appeared to be generally iu
favor of the proposal, on the grounds
that it seemed to be the only feasible way of disposing of Burnaby's
sewerage in that portion of the municipality immediately adjacent to this
city.
The Burnaby delegation was com
posed of Acting Reeve McGregor,
Councillors Fau Vel and Britton, Engineer McPherson and Municipal
Clerk Moore.
Acting Mayor Gray, Aldermen Curtis, Henley and White, and City Engineer Blackman were present on be
half of the city.
Relative Cost and Area.
By the aid of maps and diagrams
Mr. Blackman explained thoroughly to
the meeting just how the system
',ould affect the city and municipality.
Its relative cost to both and the area
drained.
He pointed out that In reality this
was the only feasible plan which Burnaby could hope to get for draining
the area Included ln the scheme. One
reason advanced was that the provincial government would be very unlikely to grant a request to discharge
crude sewerage Into the north arm
of the Fraaer, as would hnve to be
tne cane if Uurnaby constructed a
sewerage weliemp of her awn. 'JLlm^

The donor is' Mrs. IS. M. Mastin, ol
Stratford-on-Avon, England, whose

the Canadian people, and to state that
she proposes as a mark of this interest to bestow, tor the benefit of the
Canadian museum, her collections of
rare objects given by Queen Victoria
and other members and connections

A reply is being forwarded by the
direction of Hon. George Perley, acting premier, gladly accepting the collection on behalf of the Canadian government and expressing very high appreciation of the spirit in which the

the
Chairman   Montreal   Harbor Commission Angry���Ships Charged with
Ovcrspeedlng Go Free.
Montreal, Aug. 2.���The charge of
overspeediug while entering the harbor was preferred against the Whit"
Star liner Megantic, which' is alleged
lo have done damage to the Monarch
through the suction caused by its excessive speed, had to be dismissed
today when it came up before tlie barbor commissioners sitting i.n their

out the work on Koverninont grounds,
with convict labor, hnd made possible a saving or over $40,000, materially adding to the strength of the
scheme'
In   regard   to  the    amount    which
Burnaby would have to pay a sum of
$8.50  would be charged to every
foot lot abutting or fronting on
sewer mains or branch mains.
At this stage some of the Burnaby
representatives observed that In their
mind a tux sueh us this, would be a
hardship on the larger landholders,
to which Mr. illackinan replied that
the estimates were based upon the
assessment of property included In
the area.
Municipal Clerk Moore, of Burnaby,
declared that It would be Impossible
to Introduce this assessment in Bur-
. naby.
Approximate  Areas.
Mr. Blackman theu went on fo point
out that New Westminster's area   In
the  proposed sewer  was  664    acres
while  Burunby acreage  Included
the system  wus    approximately
acres.   Reckoned on tlte basis of
assessment the cost ut the municipality would  oni)'  be $88,000,  exclusive
of the prlvato Installations,
Alderman Curtis  pointed    out    to
the   municipal   representatives   thatj
Burnaby must not expect Westminster j
to go right ahead and construct large :
main trunk sewers anticipating a future decision ot tho municipality to
come lni   A definite   ugreement,   he
aald, must be. arrived at first before

Acting Reeve McGregor refused to
commit hiinsi If ono way or the othayj
regarding the attitude of Burnaby in"1
��� the matter. r   "
Before the meeting closed .at 11:10 J
a.m. City Englm-er Blackman was
deputed to attend the next meeting
of the Burnaby councll for tho purpose of explaining more (Sxhaustlvo
ly the Sapperlon seww and ita convenience >to Burnaby.
Aotlng Mayor Gray stated that the
city was anxious to s.ee the work on
this sewerane system commenced In
order that full advantage might b'
taken of the convict labor as supplied
t>y the government,
the limits of tbo harbor over tbe main
ship channel upon which the Megantic
was proceeding.
President Stevens, cf the harbor
commission, was uot at all pleased at
the turn < f events and at one time
broke out: "If every one ls to get behind a technicality  they can  tell the
ccimniissii.il   to   go   to   h and   do
what they d well please In    thc
channel."
It Is alleged that the suction from
the Megantio caused great damage tc
the Monarch, which was lying moored lo Tarte pier, breaking ropes, bits
and land stages for cargo and an 18
Inch ventilating shaft, ns well as dam
agtng nfggerheaOs and otb��?r fixtures
on the Tarte pier. *
When it was shown that the commissioners had no jurisdiction it was
suggested that a friendly Inquiry he
held to ascertain the facts, but the
Elder Hem nster company, owners of
thn Monarch, sa'd no good could come
of this and decided to Seek out the
proper authorities by y/hom to present
their case.
A similar charge of speeding agalnsl
the Richelieu and Ontario vessels of
Saguetav was nlso dismissed on account of lack of jurisdiction.
NEW DEVELOPMENTS
AROUND PORT MANN
Impressed with the advantages and
future of the city as a pipping and
railway centre, two officials of the
Chloago, Milwaukee and St. Paul rail-
road, who were ln the city yesterday,
announced that It was the intention
of their company to establish a combined freight and passenger agency
here at very short notice.
The names of the officials were Mr.
A. P. Chapman, general passenger
agent, and Mr. W. C. Nace, the company's representative In Vancouver.
Mr. John R. Puncan. president of
the Westminster hoard of liado, while
on bis way east last fall, on a combined business and pleasure trip, called at the head offices of the C. M. ft
S. P. railway in Chicago for the purpose of securing an Interview with
the president of the road, on behalf
of the city.
Although Mr. Duncan did not actually secure the Interview he was
virtually .-sstired by other officials of
the railway that the establishment of
an office in New Westminster would
be but a matter of time, and that the
company was watching the progress
and activity of this city with an eagle
eye bo that when the physologlcal moment arrived the office might be
established to prepare fcr the railway which must follow as a matter
if course.
Yesterday on their arrival here the
flrst call made by the officials wag
on Mr. Duncan', ..afterwards, with hipj,
they called at the offices of the Pro-']
grejsive association In order to glean
i few sidelights upon the industrial
outlook. After a short conversation
and discussion regarding the activity
prevalent in all departments ln Westminster, Mr. Chapman stated that the
opening of a freight and passengei
office by the Chicago, Milwaukee and
Puget Sound railway would only be a
mater of weeks.
Outside of the facl that another
lar^s transportation company has
recognized the necessity of locating
'n Westminster before being supplant
���>d by rivr.l concerns, the opening of
'he new office will afford many facilities for the traveling public hitherto
impossible to sepure nearer than Vancouver. *rt*teo*�� and Information eon-
eerutns all thfe company's lines may
be secured at the loca} office and an
equal amount of publicity concerning
New Westminster will go out, to be
posted at the various offices on the
circuit for reference. ^^^~
Before leaving the city yesterday
Mr. Chapman and Mr. Nace expressed thetr amazement at the activity on
the waterfront, and the work being
lone bv the Progressive association.

"Whltey" Lewis Denies Knowledge of

(MID STATES
New York, Aug. 2.���With "Whltey"
Lewis and "Dago Frank" locked in
the TtaJKi, tw o ��� it*' the four of the
gan men who murdered Herman
Rosenthal, the gambler, on July 16,
police headquarters profess tonight to
e: pect to receive news at any moment
of the capture of Gyp the Blood" and
i>etty Louie," the two of the quartette who are still at large.
Lewis, who was arrested last night
at a resort near Kingston, N. ��.. and
brought here today, refused to admit
when examined by Deputy Police Commissioner Dougherty that he had any
knowledge of the shooting, and said
that on the day before the murder he
went out of town to visit relatives.
He was very vague, however, as to
just where these "relatives" resided.
He was held for farther examination
on Tuesday.
That the two gun men still missing
are In hiding In the same region
where Lewis was picked up, was the
belief expressed at' headquarters tonight., and It was reported that a
squad of detectives ls still scouring
the neighborhood and that the chase
grows hot.
'*. It was said by Assistant District At-
j'tcrney Morse, however, that he had
received word froni Auburn that the
men were hiding in or near that city
and lt is understood that detectives
have been trying to run them down
there for several days.
Mr. Morse took charge of the case
today In the absence of Mr. Whitman,
who left for Boston expecting later to
go to Manchester, Vermont, to remalu
over Sunday with his family. Directing his attention to the pollce graft
features of the case, brought Into
prominence by the allegations of
"Jack" Rose and "Bridgle" Webber
that the annul levy of black mall by
the police of illegal resorts amounted
to 82,400.000, Mr. Morse had brought
before hlm a number of gamblers and
other characters of the underworld,
whom he closely questioned. The as-
alfit-ant prosecutor will not ten, however, what, information he had gained.

That the city will no longer be ab

customary in other British ("clumbv.
cities at a very early date, was the
statement of Alderman White, chair
man of the parks committee, yesterday afternoon.
"We have a specific proposal to put
up to tbe council at Monday night's
meeting," declared Mr. White, "and I
have no doubt that it will bs approved.

to the nations of the world against

want of Sunday band concerts bas
been felt here keenly, and the splendid demonstration given by the North
Vancouver band last Sunday opened
everyone's eyes to the desirab'lity of
gocd music as a means of amusement
and education."
Alderman White stated briefly tbat
'.he proposal to be submitted to the
council would call for a series of concerts held once a week on Sundays in
Queens park. These entertainments
would be commenced at 4 o'clock in
the afternoon, and would last about
an bour and a half. It was also proposed to have two additional tjencerts
through the week, one to he held in
Sapperton and one in Moody square.
A city band, he said, had made an
offer to the park board which seemed
to be very reasonable, and this would
alao be considered by the council on
Monday night.

Yesterday morning Mr. R. R.
Stewarc, cf San Jose, Cal., a repic
sentatlve of the. department of education for California schools, wbo wa,*
passing through Westminster, held a
conference with Publicity Cotnctls-
sloner Wade. The object of St.
Stewart's mission, as stated by Mr.
Wade yesterday afteradon, w*s to
secure exhibits ot the natural resources and agricultural products
from the Fnteer viyey 'tor museum
and educational purposes in the San
Jose schools.
Mr. Wads has Already undertaken
a commission of, a similar nature required of hlm liy Mr. W. A. Scott,
deputy minister at agriculture, to secure exhibits for the Lethbrldge Dry
Farming congress to be held In Lethbridge ln October, but notwithstanding this he undertook to satisfy the
request of Mr. Stewart, believing It
would be of great advantage to the
valley to have choice samples of their
products before the eyes of the
American publlc.
"There la considerable work' Included in supplying these two requests In a manner that wlll reflect
:rod't on Westminster and on the
Kraser valley." says Mr. Wade, "and
It Is only with tbo co-operation ot the
f-irmors that tbey may be satisfied at
all.
"I believe," eald he, "that when the
specimens have beau, distr'buted " a
great amourt of good solid advertising will accrue to the city and valley,
and therefore the making of the exhibits as nearly perfect as possible
wlll be to our advantage."
Not cnly the farmers, but lumber
and flshln-x industries will be requested' to aard.ln c?hlblt��.
"Nc contribution," Mr. Wade de-
elared,, "would be considered too
s-nnil. nnd It was hoped that Individuals as will as Arms would assist in obtaining the. specimens.

East Burnaby, Aug. 3���The question
as to. whether tho Burnaby council
should rescind Its action in allowing
a spur track to be built on Fourth
avenue connecting with the Sixth
street lino, is agitating the residents
of this district.
Upon the application of Messrs.
Cliff �� Sons, to the Burnaby council
some two weeks ago, the council upon recommendation cf the. engineer,
gave'permission for the track to be
built. Several of the resident*.,have
since taken a strong stand against
what they claim is encroachment upon public property, and final ratification of the agreement wai held over
one week by the council pend'ug the
presentation of a signed petition by
those against the agreement.
Another phase of the question hn=
cropped up by the rumor that Cliff &

Though the attendance at the local
market yesterday was somewhat affected by tne aosence of several of
the farmers and ranchers ou account
of the haying, business was very
good. Stocks in all lines of farm pro-
duce, with the exception of new potatoes which were In excessive supply, were well up to the average and
trading was brisk all round.
The. heavy arrivals of potatoes at
this time of the year is somewhat unusual, and one of the officials cf the
market commenting on the supply
yesterday, said he hr-d never seen
such large offerings of spuds at this
time of the year before. Consequent
upon the large arrivals the holders of
the stocks found it rather hard to get
rid of their goods, and at the close
there were several sacks left on the
floor without a purchaser. The price,
however, though it showed a tendency
to ease slightly, suffered no severe
break.
The chicken merchants found business good, and though the supplies of
these feathered creatures were rather
large, holders had no difficulty ln getting rid of their stocks at the prevailing price of last week.
A noisy feature of the day's doings
vvas the arrival of several crates  cf
young pigs,  wllich   loudly   acclaimed
tbeir    presence in    a not   altogether
musical  manner.      These  live  porks
round ready buyer* at prices ranging
rrom $5 to $7.50.
The meat stalls did a thriving bisi-
! 'iess with the pork and yeai sales pre-
! dominating in the day's  transactions.
j The inquiry for the dead pig similar
j to that of the live, was on a parity or
'better   lhan  the   supply,    while   veal
j was practically cleared eff the market
1 at an early hour.
A good many people were attracted to the vegetable market on account
lef the first arrivals cf the season of
j new beets and carrots. With the de-
! mand better than the simply the price
j cf beets advanced considerably, while
carrots also made, a jump in price.
n.qss were    firm on small supplies,
i Asked as to the reason for the scar-
. city of eggs at the present time, an ofr
!fic;al of the market stated   yesterday
that the farmers were putting m03t of
the  eges  into  incubators on  account
of this being the chicken hatching season.
A gocd many bores cf apples ar-
r''-ed on the market and met a readv

contained Yellow Transparents.

TWO MILLIONS PAID IN
BONUCE3 TO   MOTHERS
Melbourne, Auf. 2.���Premier A.
Fisher, in the federal house today, announced a most satisfactory and
healthy condition ot commonwealth
finances.
Quoting from the budget, the prime
minister stated that the revenue of
the commonwealth for the last year
totalled $102,731,805, the surplus being $9,185,875. The government proposed to devote half .of this amount
to invalid and old-age pensions, while
the other half would be turned over
to the fleet fund to augment the present amount set aside for the building
of the Australian navy.
The increase from the custom* receipt was nearly $10,000,000. The gov-
ernment continued tlie premier, proposed to expend during the coming
year for new public works $20,000,000.
while the Increase to the navy and
military would total tn all $3,697,350.
In conclusion, Premier Fisher congratulated the government on the fact
that It had not been necessary to do
any borrowing.
Further figures shown in the budget point to an Increase tn the postal
revenue of $52,920 despite the Introduction of penny postal system. The
number of old-age pensions awarded
number 79,071. Following the government policy of encouraging an Increase in population, baby bonuses
paid to mothers, amounting to $26 for
each child born, amounted to $2,000,-
000.

Charles Jones, president cf the

fixed duties and fixed wages, I refuse to believe but that there will be
plenty of girls ready to start housekeeping, for it Is the rule, not the exception with women, that they are
most fitted for and have greater pref

But to fixed hours duties and wages
one would almost wish to add, fixed
tempers of the mistress also, for this
is another and a vital point to the
question.
In office work women are treated to
a tolerably amount of civility and consideration. Their work is praised or

The Rev. R. S. DeCcurcy Laffan, a

The helps get from $25 to $35 per

Tbe reason Is not hard to seek. Of

Indians in the State of Oxaca have renewed their revolt against the government. It is reported today that a
large body of the warriors Is marching on Ixtlan. forty miles from the
state capital. A mixup oyer distribution of land is causing the trouble.
Several weeks ago the Indians re
vol'ed after an argument over tbe
land question, but under promise of
amnesty they put away their arms
Now they claim the amnesty was not
complete and the government executed several of their tribesmen. As tc
peace, the rebel leader could see
none. *'������*
Orozco said the "fighting' was Just
beginning," and that there "could be
no peace as long as Madero remained

The rebel chief asserted that Mex-

have asked for peace as a means of
injuring the rebel, cause in the eyes of
the nattons."

the federal army took Madera from
the rebels and now is marching north
toward Casas Grandes, and the federals ought to be able to get to Cas

get there they could cut Orozco off
from retreat Into Sonora.

While the lacrosse and cricket battles are holding sway at this time of
the year, the soccer and rugger men
of the city are beginning to enquire
into the prospectB of the coming winter sport.
The Rovers, according to Scotty
Grant, are to be the strongest team in
the league this year. Several new
men have been signed up, together
with practically every one .of last
.year's, lineup, and from the deads of
this aggregation, a few cupsfthft are
hanging ajpund the lower mainland
during the winter, should bei lfeaded
thiB way. .        !���
Contrary to expectations and all
precedents, the Vancouver delegates
of the professional league always ap
pear to give the Royal City aggregation a fair show, and- this was demonstrated when they, gave assent to
the final of the Imperial Cup being
played Tn this elty. The latest acquisition to the Rovers,' is a Scottish back
who will partner Lyons on the defense. If he proves what Is -.said
about him to be true, this will give
Manager Grant one of the best defence fields In'the league" today. Practice will begin next week In preparation for the coming benefit game
which the Royals assented to be played in this city with the Celtics.
Too Much Magnate.
Until after Con Jones comes and
goes the lacrosse situation will be unsettled. Con is supposed to be after
a brand new team to take with him to
the coast with which to finish out the
league in place of the New Westminster twelve. In the meantime the
Salmonbellies Intend to take a jaun:
east and round of their season In exhibition fixtures with the eastern
clubs. The lacrosse magnates this
season appear to have lost any horse
sense which they possessed- - First
there came the split In the N. L. U.
and both leagues have lost money by
it, also the national game has received a black eye, the dropping off of tiie
gates causing the opinion generally
that lacrosse is on the wane. Then
they were not satisfied to let Con
Jones alone and this cost both the
east and west a lot of money. The
B. C. league, making money hand over
fist must share the general desire for
a flght, and now they look In line for
hard times. Con will never make the
money out cf two Vancouver teams
that he would with New Westminster
in, and it will co3t a lot of coin to secure a team in the east. And thc
Royals may find that e>hib'tion games
in this end of the country do not pro
duce any 18,000 attendance figures

The past season "has also demonstrated that'the Senior Amateur team
will have many players to select from
next year. Due to the fact that the
rule, bow existing- amon�� the amateurs which means an intermediate
player can only play three games with
the seniors before he Is disqualified
from the Intermediate league, the older team-has been prevented from calling on the juniors arf much as lt
wished for. |
The rule In question has always
beea subjected, to much criticism, and
perhaps next year, It .might be amended in such a manner as to allow a
promising player to play with the seniors during the entire season and then
perhaps be disqualified from the intermediates,      .
It is worthy of a" trial ��t any rate,
and it ls to be hoped that, the managers and executives- of the two
leagues will (kite the m-tter up when
the time comes to reorganize at the
beginning cf the 1913 season.

some evening next week. Manager
Chockley, of the Leafs, waa all ready
to go tbrough with the deal, but assented to tbe postponement when
notified that a fully representative

fact that the period set for the receipt of, taxes is different this year
than last, no comparative figures can

was there with the rounded curve3
and then some.
Captain Herb Ryall had a little
come back all hts own, and was there
with' both the movement and the

tacks regarding covering second bsse

drug dispenser) was up to hat three

It is not qnlte the closely packed

hence tbeir return to popularity. In

I am giving away absolutely free, this store that costs
$1500 to build, and 19 Bungalows like' these pictures,
and 44 other prizes too.   Read the rest it's interesting.
I have a way of doing business that my friends tell me doesn't make
enough money. I believe differently. I depend upon a whole lot of
sales at a small profit, rather than a few with large profits. In other
words, I give you more for your money than anyone else will. Read
the rest of this and see how I do business.
The first piece of property I have to sell is Cumberland Park, out on
Burnaby Lake.   It's not very large, only one hundred and twenty lots.
First I am clearing it, so you can live there right now, and start a
garden if you want to.
Then I contracted for a store building, with living rooms upstairs, to
cost $1,500 to build, and also for nineteen bungalows that are costing
me from $400 up to $750 to build. Two of the houses stand on $900
lots, the others are on $500 lots.
That leaves one hundred vacant lots, and as the Burnaby Lake tram
line runs right through the property, from one corner down to the
other, I had to make the lots different sizes.   Some of them are 33 foot
frontage, others are as much as 140 ft. front.   These lots are worth
from $500 to $1150 each.   I am selling all of these lots, those with the
houses included, for $500 each.   Here is the way it works out.   There
are 44 lots worth from $550 to $1150 each.   There are twenty buildings
together with the lots they are built on, worth from $900 to $2000.   I
will sell you a lot fpr $500. When the 120 piecea are sold; this of eourse
includes'Shose witfr*the buildings, you will meet in my office and decide
with the others, just how you want the prizes distributed.   That's the
way I do business. I wont have any blanks where there is a chance for
vou to lose a cent.   I haven't put a lot in that is worth less than the
full amount you pay for it, $500.   I am going to give you easy terms
on this too, $50.00 down and $15.00 a month.
Now wouldn't you like to have a home out on Burnaby Lake. It's
the only fresh water lake, in greater Vancouver* I tell you it's going tq
be fine out there. The engineers are working on plans .now to put a
boulevard around it, and beautify it in many ways. You can really
ive there. You can have a garden and raise your own fresh vegetables. You can have a boat on the lake.  There's some fine fishing too.
' Now I have told you about this as plainly as I know how. You can
see for yourself that you have better than one chance in two of getting
more than your money's wb^th, akd you might get the $1900 piece,
someone will. Come in and see about this right away. They wont
last very long. 1 can't say any more, it's up to you now. I have given
you the chance.
