Bulgaria Demands Adrianople, Scutari and Monastir���Fall
of Former Again Rumored���Murderous Fighting Along
Tchatalja Lines-Montenegrins Resume Offensive-King
Cholera Holds Sway-Great Powers Make no New Move.
London, Nov. 14.���Turkey now haa
formally appealed to Bulgaria foi
peace, thus forestalling; the tardy action of the European concert toward
mediation.
No armistice haB been concluded,
difficulties have arisen about the
terms. It Is said that Bulgaria demands the evacuation of Adrlanopb
Scutari and Monastir as a condition
of agreeing to an armistice.
Negotiations, however, continue.
The censorship ls again exceedingly
severe and It Is difficult to arrive at
any correct Idea of the military position.
Fate of Adrlanople.
The fall of the Adrianople Ib rumor
ed from both Servian and Turkish
sources, but this still is unconllnned
Another report says the Bulgarians
have occupied Hadamokeune, 21 miles
from Constantinople. If this is true, It
is a very Important capture, as that
town Is Nazlm Pasha's headquarters
While the Vienna Reichspost correspondent with the Bulgarian army re
ported what he described as "murder
ous fighting" along the Tchatalja lines
Turkish official report: are denying
there has been any considerable fighting there for several days.
Montenegrin Campaign.
With regard to other points, an im
proveraent In the weather has permitted the resumption of the Montenegrin
attacks against the Turkish positions
around 8cutari with some success. A
battle ls Imminent at Monastir, where
tho garrison ha�� endeavored to make
terms for Its surrender, but imposed
conditions which the Servian crown
prince was unable to grant.
Should an attack on Monastir b*
made the Turks are nit expected to
offer strong rcsi3tr.^ce to the com
bined 3e'r,-ir.n and Greek armies an]
lt Is likely to fall.
The Creeks continued their advance
toward Janina. They hnve taken
Meteove, a few miles to the north
west, ,
Bulgarian I ossee.
A report through Bucharest places
the Bulgarian louses in tho war at t
fur greater figure than had been esti
mated. According to this report, the
killed and wounded numbered between
60.000 and 90,000. out of a total of
320.000 men, and It Is pointed out aft��>-
allowance ls mado for holding th"
lines of communication, only 1C0,001
effective men are left for fighting.
Fear of cholera Ib considered likely
to Induce Bulgaria to consent to un
armistice and to a peace settlement
Official reports Issued at the capita'
report that comparatively few cases-
are occurring dally, but other report*
Hay the epidemic Is serious, with a
high mortality.
Russian Denial.
There Is no new development In thc
diplomatic situation, but an official
denial has been issued at St. Peters- i
burg to reports that the Russian gov
ernment haa pronounced Itself definitely In tavor of Servia's claim for an
Adriatic port, or has sent Instructions
to tlie Russian ambassador at Vienna
to that effect.
Battleship In Action.
Constantinople, Nov. 14.--Untll today there has been flghting along the
Tchatalja linos since Sunday, when
the Bulgarians attacked two outlying
forts. Tho commander of the Turkish
battleship Turghut Itels, reports that
at 3 o'clock this afternoon he bombarded the Bulgarian forces north of
Lake Derkes. The authorities here
say that the oondltlon of the Tchatalja
lines Is satisfactory and that a second
line of defence is being established.
The fprelgn military attaches bav��.
gone to the front.
The Bulgarians yesterday occupied
Redesto. A ianjo number of cholera
patients have been removed to the
various Lazarettos. There are several
cases among the wounded.
Again Assault Scutari.
Reika. Nov. 14.���The Montenegrin
forces have renewed their attack. on
the Turkish positions around Scutari
whloh was suspended a few days ago
because of the terrible weather. Heavy
guns have arrived and the bombardment began early this morning. /
The flre was concentrated on the
Turkish batteries and old great damage. A few projectiles passed over
the town throwing the Inhabitants Into
a panic. The Montenegrin commander-
in-ehlet ordered the Infantry to advance In tfce afternoon against the
Turkish fortlflcatlous on the heights
ot Barbanjolt. ���
In spite of a hall of Turkish shells
the Montenegrins advanced across the
Klrl river and hy evening drove the
Turks from the trenohes and forced
them to retire on the town.
Fate of Adrlanople.
Constantinople, Nov. 14.^ That
Adrlanople has fallen ts the rumor
here. Since noon yesterday wireless
communication with tbe besieged ctty

Situation Serious.
Belgare, Nov. 14.���The ministers ol
the powers presented the mediation
proposals to the Servian governmenl
today. No reply will be made until
the return of Premier Pachitch. The
relations between Austria and Servia
are regarded in diplomatic circles ab
serious.
Two Days' Fight.

STORY OF SHOOTING
RETOLD BY GUARDS
Argument   as   to   Who   Fired   Fatal
Bullet���Trial Likely to Be Protracted.
The apparent contention of the defence in the trial of Convict Smith for
the murder of Guard Joynson at the
Dominion penitentiary on October 5
whicli ia now.on before Mr. Justice
ifurphy In the a3Bl;e court, that the
guanl met his death from a bullstf
fired by one of the guards and wh.cti
waa deflected from IU course, received a set back yesterday when th>
testimony of several guard3 broughl
out the fact that Joynson had fallen
before any of the other guard3 opened fire.
Guards Morrison, Rounds and Billon
each testified that, while they w*x*
at Klson'n pout, Joynson appeared
while Elaon was after hts keys which
had been demanded by Wilson. Joynson opened flre on the group and the
flre was returned by Wilson ana
Smith, the former using Elson's rlfl*
and tlie latter one of the revolvers
which he had secured previously. Before Klson fired tho shot which Incapacitated Wilson and which later resulted In his death, Joynson had fallen
and Smith was returning to continue
the frucas with Guard Rounds. He
was then overpowered and returned
to custody.
Aside from the repeated stories of
thu affair told by the various guards,
this was the only feature of the case
yesterday. As there are several witnesses yet to be called by the crowr
and the defence' will then put in Its
testimony, it is doubtful if the case
will be finished much before Saturday.
During the entire case Smith has
appeared in the bos calm and hardly
moving, except on rare occasions to
speak wtth his counsel. He wears hls
prison uniform and Is clean shaven.
While following events closely and
constantly watching the witnesses, be
continues tbe same set expression on
its contenauce. The case Is attracting
much Interest, every session of court
being largely attended.
Guard Rounds said he was on duty
'ii the vestibule and had Just locked
'.he door when hc heard some one
ome up behind him who ordered him
io open the door. Before doing so h?
ooked around aud found Wilson covering him with a revolver and Smith
vvas standing behind lilm. While Wll
��on held the weapon to his bead
Imith seized the guard's weapons and
keys, the two then ordering Rounds
to lead them to the brick yard. Guard
Morrison was next held up at the gate
leading to the ravine where he was
standing. He threw up his hands and
was marched ahead of them to tower
12, where Guard Elson was on duty. It
was at this point that Guard Joynson
took a hand In the affair.
With Smith covering Rounds and
Wilson looking after Morrison, Joyn
son appeared and opened flre, according to Rounds. Wilson then demanded
that Elson throw down his keys, In
the meantime both convicts returning
Joynson's flre. Smith was using the
revolver and Wilson was firing Elson'a
rifle which had been surrendered to
him.
When Elson returned with the keys
and threw them to Wilson he Dred at
Wilson wounding him. The convict
then cried "It's all up Smithy, 'I'm
wounded," dropping his rifle and fall'
lng to the ground.
Rounds picked up the rifle and turn
ed to flnd Smith running toward him.
The stand taken by organized labor
against the white plague was to be
seen at the concert held ln the Labor
Temple last evening when the S. ll. O
signs were hung out iu order to cop*
with the large crowd tbat patronized
the smoker given under the auspices
of thc Trades and Labor council for
the benefit of a man who ts not u
member of any labor union, but la
stricken with the disease.
The progrum, carried out under the
supervision of President R. A. Stoney
left nothing to be desired. Speecbefc
mingled with musical selections kepi
the large attendance cn edge until u
late hour, and rounds of applause
greeted every number.
A feature of the evening's entertainment was the first political announce
ment of Alderman Gray in his mayoralty campaign. Alderman Gray, who
was greeted with cheers when ho
mounted the platform, spoke of thc
support he had always given to
organized labor. Although he bad
never belonged to any union, bis
sympathies were with organized labor
and If he was elected mayor of this
city he would see that the working
men of the city would get a squar*
deal In any contracts whicb were entered into during his term of office.
He spoke highly of the work of Alder
man Dodd during his two years on
thc present council.
Alderman Walter Dodd and Mr.
Thomas Turnbull also spoke , each
commenting on the spirit and object
which brought such a body of organ
lzed labor together.
The following contributed to an excellent program which lasted to nearly
midnight: Messrs. R. A. Stoney, P.
McKercher, A. G. Williams, R. Purse
house. Guthrie, Strain, Dave Boyle
Speedie. Rube Fulton, Harry Morr1
son and Tom Wood.
The entertainment committee did
herculean work in providing refreshments and the proceedings ended with
.he singing of tbe National Anthem.

ENGINEER TESTIFIES
AT SAMSON INQUIRY
Found     Boyd   Willing
Surveying North Arm���Gasoline
Boat Arrangements.
Apart from the testimony of Mr.
George Turner, one of the engineers
connected with the department of
public works, the testimony given in
the Samson inquiry yesterday was devoid of little public Interest. Mr.
Turner, when called to the stand
stated that he had found Mate Boyd r.
willing worker, and that he had verv
little against him other than tbat bis
eyesight was poor.
He added that the men assisting
blm in the work ot surveying th.
Nortb Arm of the Fraser could not b?
expected to be conversant with th
engineering difficulties connected with
the work and that he hud found Mate
Boyd a very willing worker.
Cross-e; amlned by Captain Young
Mr. Turner stated that he had found
everything satisfactory with the form
er's work and the present trouble wa.-
the first complaint against the skipper
of the Samson.
Walter Barker, steward of the Samson, was the next witness called and
he stated that a finer crew could not
be mustered than that aboard the
Samson.
Mr. H. A. Wilson, of the auditing department ot the board of works, and
who, during the oummer months mado
an Investigation of tyoyd's charges, re
lated the particulars eonnected therewith and stated that there was every
vldence that the supply list waa
handled tn a loose manner.
During the afternoon session Mr. H.
T. Kirk and Mr. L. B. Lusby were
called in to testify regarding requlsl
tlons sent In by the commander of
the Samson for supplies. This testl
mony was of a technical nature and
explained the system under which tht
supplies for tbe government boat."
were ordered.
The last witness on the stand wai
Resident Engineer Worsfold.   In connection with the hiring of two gaso
Hue launches wblcb had appeared   in
the evidence the previous   day,   Mr
Worsfold stated that a contract had
been entered Into for the rental of th?
larger gasoline boat from Mr. Johc
Savage. Westham Island, at 115   pe*
day.   The smaller boat was not undo,
contract but was leased for $40   n
month, all gasoline   being   supplied
from I ov e.rlnp Bros, at 916 per month
Mr. Wcirsfold stated that the boats

Fighting a fierce fire in the focs'le
in the teeth of a fifty mile gale wad
the experience of the crew of the
Dominion fisheries boat Restless
which came up river yesterday morning from Seymour sound.
The Restless, Captain Moore, left
New Westminster on October 29 for
the Queen Charlotte Islands on a tour
of inspection, and, returning from
there encountered one of the worst
storms of the present season. About ;'���
o'clock on the evening of November 7
the little boat was making her way
with difficulty against a head wind
with the waves continually lashing
themselves over the upper deck. Ail
the hatchways were battened down
and everything on board was prepared
for a dirty night.
Fire Forward.
One of the firemen, chancing 1*1
make his way forward, noticed smoke
wlsping from the forward deck and at
once gave the alarm. Captain Moore
was at the wheel at.the time and had
all his work cut out to keep the boat's
head against the storm. Mr. Adla*',
the first officer, and the engineer.
James Greer, took lt upon themselves
to fight the flre which was seen to bj
steadily gaining headway. Opening
the hatch, the flames burst out and
commenced licking up everything In
sight. The hose and pumps on board
were brought Into play and after a
hard battle the flames were eventually
subdued.
How It Began. ���
Later, investigation showed that' a
lantern had been left in the forward
quarters where the crew sleep, and
the rolling of the boat made it slip
from the hanging, whence it smashed
| to pieces on the floor, the flames starting the woodwork burning^
Captain Moore, when interviewed
yesterday, could not apeak too highly
of the work of his officers and crew.
With no railings around .the lower
deck the men had to crawl along froui
the galley Inch by inch, being a continual danger ot being washed over-
Wcrker While \ board. The damage, strange to aay,
I was not heavy owing to the contlagra-
Uon being dlacovered In time.
The Restless will leave port on Saturday morning for Esquimalt where
she will undergo her annual overhaul
ing and the damage done by the flre
will also be repaired.

probably wlll not get as much of Turkey ln Europe as they expected. Bulgaria, it Is said, probably will get Rou-
mella and a share of eastern Macedonia; Servla will get a favorable commercial treaty with Austria by which
she will secure a trade outlet on the

Under the arrangement planned, A'

nominal Turkish sovereignty. Salonika undoubtedly will be under Interna

Rochester, N. V., Nov. 14.���The second day'ssession of the Thirty-Second
Convention of the American Federa-

irely with the reading of the report
.f thc executive council.
In it w'llliam J. Burns was arraign-
3d as an example of his own charac
'.erizatlon cf private detectives and the
nvestigation of tlie federation side of
the McNamara trial was declared to
be a concerted attempt by employer*

entombed in the Spanish pantheon
this afternoon with the highest na
tional honors. The entire nation Is In
mourning and all civil affairs and bust

after the ceremony.
King Alfonso, accompanied by
Prince Charles of Bourbon-Siclles, and
Prince Ferdinand of Bavaria, infantas
i of Spain, walked behind the hearse
from the Chamber of Deputies to th"
pantheon while 250100 persons stood
with uncovered heads in tribute to th;
dead premier.
The Republican press protests
against*the assertion that the assassination represented an attempt to
avenge the execution of Ferrer.
Manuel Pardinas, the assassin, died
according to the police, without making any statement. The exact motive
for the deed remains a mystery.

conservative resources in which labor
should participate.
Part of the report   dealt with   tha
boy scout movement.   At the Atlanta
convention of the federation  a resolution was presented denouncing the boy
scouts as breeders of militarism   and
antagonistic to labor.   The report re-1
viewed   attempts by   leaders   of  ths
scouts to eliminate the features that!
were objectionable to labor, and recommended that the  convention   this
year   refrain   from   denouncing   the
movement.
Part of the afternoon session was
taken up with a dispute over seating
delegates from the American Flint
Glass Workers. The delegates were
seated by avote of 177 to 29.
Of the McNamaras. the report said:
"The McNamara offense was a social crime. Thinking people, who were
made to realize the poisonous, mlas-
mic influences corrupting tbe atmosphere of Industrial life, were well
nlgh-overwhelmed by the weight of
collective responsibility devolving upon them as a result of the existence of
such Interests.
"The McNamaras either were criminally Insane or Insanely criminal���
either condition due to Imperfect education, incomplete education or complete defective mentality.
"In any case society is responsible
for not remedying the conditions.
Whnt concerns labor and society generally are. preventative measures snd
hnmpn betterment so that life and
working conditions may be pure,
wholesome and clean. ThoBe inflicted
by deadly social poisons due to social
neglect are the heritage of our own
aim and those of our fathers."
Of Burns' connection with the McNamara case the report said   in part.
"Burns has not and conld 'not produce a scintilla of evidence to substantiate his oft misstatement: 'Gompers knew.'"
The report charges that BurnB made
it appears that officers of the federation were the "higher ups" and that
when Gompers made reply "this turned upon him the brunt of the attack.'
halibut fishermen off the west coast
| according to Captain Baker of the
cannery tender, Iskuni, which has Jus:
returned to Victoria from Clayoquot
The IsKum during the fishing season
has been gathering the fish from the
smaller boats operating around Nootka and adjacent points and carrying
the catches to the Clayoquot cannery.
Owing to the fact that she visited
smaller harbors she had a flne opportunity to watch the little poaching
game.
Of late the halibut fishing boats
have been perpetrating some daring
breaches of the Canadian laws. Tl'
the weather is too severe for the vessels they are permitted to shelter in
the harbors of the Island, but are not
allowed to take any bait. Captain
Baker sav several American schooners lying at anchor In west coast harbors when the weather outside was

their supply of bait and were getting
lots of It.
cuping the chair. The speaker went
far towards answering his question."
The criticism, he said, leveled at Car.
adian borrowing though not ill-natured
had been based on ha3ty conclusions
and wrong premises.
The popularity of Canadian loan-"
wa3 shown by the fact that secondary
Canadian towns Borrowed on a four
per cent, basis and were consequents
the envy of cities 20 times their size
In the United States. None viewed
more regretfully than Canadian bankers certain Canadian borrowing ln tho
London markel. Canadian federal
and provincial governments, municipalities and transportation companies
must continue to be financed here, and
therefore, Canadian banks persistent
ly declined to become the medium for
speculative issues.
In ten years, continued Mr. Taylji-.
Canada had borrowed in London about
two hundred and five million pound;
sterling with twenty millions additional invested privately. The fact thai
Canada was more Immune from inva
sion than any other country In UK-
world with the sole exception of tho
United States was, in Itself, a safeguard to the investor and no other
country could have financed itself ori
more favored terms or with leas strain
to its credit.
The financial conditions and meth
ods of the Canadian provinces contain
e.A nothing to justify adverse criticism
It was doubtful whether the real niern
cf Canadian provincial securities lia'l
ever been realized by the British investor. Their credit and flanancial re
jponsibility had certainly never been
questioned.
Public borrowings by small Carni
dian municipalities had. doubtless,
aroused some unfavorable comment,
conceded Mr. Taylor, but analys.s
showed that ��23.000,000 out of tho
��30,000,000 devoted to this purpose
was divided among such high-class,
borrowers as Montreal, Toronto, Win
nlpeg, Ottawa, Quebec, Vancouver.
Victoria and Hamilton, leaving just
over seven millions among twenty
other cities.
The public flotations of these lattei
have been rapid and greatly advertised, the result being a much exaggerated idea of the real amount borrowej.
'n his opinion competition for Canadian business was keen, and conse-
quently Canadian city issues receive
the close scrutiny of Investors Interested in the Canadian market.
Turning to    railway    securlt'es, he
said, these revealed but a small percentage  which  conld  be    classed  as
doubtful, for the three great transcon
tinental   lines,   accounted   for   nearly'
90 per cent, of the aggregate Cana-1
dlan Railway   borrowings.     The case i
with which they had    financed then.-!,
selves showed the confidence in them.
Regarding  miscellaneous  securities. |
Mr. Taylor said there were   some financiers whose lack of knowledge   of!
the London market  was tnonumenta .!
Tliey were perhaps residious of adopt I
Ing a straight course, but were unable |
to do so through ignorance.   Regard-
ng land speculation, he thought   thai
speculators, who included many members of the   aristocracy, had   bought
Canadian land both wisely and unwise-
iy.

In short, this system would simply
double the length of the present hours,
minutes and seconds.   The adoption of
such a'system would save much un-'

to railway companies the   saving   of
time in compiling complex time-tables I
would be a vast improvement on the I

the above suggestion is made in tho
hope that it may start discussion and
result in the introduction of a greatly
improved svstem throughout the civilized world.

A   MORAL   OF   WAR.
Tlie astounding rapidity with which
the Balkan attack on Turkey has been
carried to decisive success conveys a
moral of modern war. Britain was not
prepared for the Boer invasion of Brit-
Mh Bouth Africa. The result was three
years of bloody conflict. Japan waa
pcrpared for war with Russia, moved
first and In a month had made such
headway that the bigger nation never
recovered, and peace came in a few
��� months, leaving Japan the victor. Now
baa come, In the Balkan succphb, almost.the most striking object lesson
fit an history as to the value of proper
preparation and quick hitting. Turkey
could mobilize twice at many soldier.i
aa the Balkan states if Turkey Were
given time. But the Turkish power ls
���mashed before half her men can be
sot ready to fight.
A gigantic war has thus been pushed to a practical conclusion in about
two weeks. This will be the nature of
moat, future wars between big powers.
No move will be made at all���no war

able to strike suddenly with tremen-

and voiced an apology to Churchill
from the floor.
Expecting a repetition of yesterday's
stormy meeting, hundreds of curious
persons gathered about the parliament
building today, when the Commons
convened. The services of extra police were required to clear the corridors.
Government Denounced.
London, Nov. 14.���Addressing a
conference cf the Unionist Abb*-"-'-"���
here today, Sir William Crump bitterly denounced "a so-called government
which ignores a precedent which had
stood for 300 years, and refuses to resign in the face of an adverse vote if)
the Commons."
After Sir William's speech the association unanimously adopted a resolution offered by Sir Edward Cars,
condemning "the administration's attempt to force a Home Rule bill
through in defiance ofthe constitution."
unable to shake this    testimony    on
cross-examination.
Guard Morrison gave substantially
the same evidence, supporting Round?
testimony in every important particu
lar. He stated that Joynson came up
while Elson was after his keys and
was apparently trying to get under
cover. He said Smith was firing a
Joynson.
Guard Frank Elson was the last wit
ness before adjournment. Crown Pro
secutor Grant announcing that he had
finished with the direct examination.
The witness will be cross examined
by Mr. Hansford this morning. Ha
told of giving up his rifle, and throwing down the keys, following which
he wounded Wilson.
Guard McGinnis stated in the morning session that he had heard Craig

POSITION   WORTH 5120
MONTHLY GOES  BtGGINQ
Victoria, Nov. 14.���A position worth
$120 a month has been going begging
in connection with the provincial d(-
parti^ent of agriculture for the past 12
months. This Bum was voted by ths
legislature at Its last session for th'.-
purpose of securing the services of an
expert on vegetable cultivation, but it
Uas been found Impossible to get a
properly qualified man at the salary
provided for.
On-the lower mainland this past
summer the potato blight has done an
amount of damage many times greater than the salary of an expert who
would have taught the farmers the
proper methods of spraying in order to
avoid this' loss.

MOTORS
Calgary, Nov. 14.���Trackless motors
Instead: of street cars to serve the
fashionable residence district of Mount
Royal are under consideration by the
city commissioners. The residents of
the district have been flghting the intrusion of street (Jar lines but there is
a large population on the other side
of the Mount Royal district clamoring
for transportation. .
The commissioners think that motor
buses may solve the problem. They
recommend that the question be thor-
ouglilv investigated before tracks are
forced through the Mount Royal district.

In the Wednesday night Inter-City

taking two from the Granville's on
the latter's drives, and also clean
them up by 60 pins on the total, which
still leaves the Royals in fourth place.
Charlie Steele was high for the night,
206 sinele, 178 average.   The score:
beginning of September1, when two

MAN  VERSUS  NATURE  *
Marvels That Ars Wrouqht Through
Synthetic  Chemistry.
Nature, we may reflect, ban a hard
time In competition with tba cbemlut
ner slow, laborious processes are one
by one belnjj superxedad.
Her mosl dellcute perfumes, which
she dishes to us In drops, are made by
the pillon In tbe laboratory. Tbe Infinite delicacy of her tints we stimulate from a material so unromiintlc as
r-oul tur. We squeeze a cellulose product through a tiny hole, nnd we have
Ibe silk of tbe Bilk worm. We transform trees Into paper and educate the
world. We Imitate the precious stones
which Nature has produced by gigantic
tic forces In  upheaval, and the only
a goal can be scored direct from such
a free kick for the ordinary offence of
"Hands" In Law IX. As the Scottish
F. A. have given a similar verdict perhaps the hair-splitting casuists of football will now adopt a sensible attitude.
Thus the privilege of roaming over
one-half of the field and handling the
ball when he likes, apart from carrying it, is taken from the goalkeeper.
He has the penalty-area for his manual labor. That ia large enough.
Would it not be in the interests of
sport if the goal keeper were further
restricted? Has he not still too mucb
license and protection?
Another   Tour   Proposed.
It Is not decided yet when the fifteen whom it ia proposed R. V. Stanley, the promoter of the recent Argentine  trip,  should organize  from   Ox-
41lJ ford and Cambridge to play   ln Cali
fornia next year are going to decide
their matches. Certainly It cannot be
in the summer, for the vacation will
interfere with the Americans, and the
beat of a Californian summer wtll not
be exactly conducive to hearty
scrummaging. Matches may be possible in September, though the Australians did not start their itinerary
until the present month. Whether the
'Varsity authorities would be keen to
sanction even a short tour In September with term starting bo soon afterwards remains to�� be seen. The
matches would be fully interesting
could they be played, and would do a
great deal of good in the United
States.

The Goalkeeper's   Position.
The Council of the   Football Asso,,
o:ation have Interpreted the new wording in Law VIII. as anticipated at tho
TU. j the part of the officials appointed   to
control the game.
After an exhaustive inquiry, the
committee have arrived at the following conclusions: That there were
some regrettable Incidents; that if
gmator firmness on the part of the
officials had been exercised in the
earlier portion of the game some of
the incidents would not, in all probability, have occurred; and that in tho
opinion of the committee the action of
the referee in cautioning a certain
player was, under the circumstances
related to them, insufficient, and that
more summary treatment was warranted.

THE LOST TRIBE IN THE NORTH
HAVE QUEER HISTORY.
Explorer Stefansson Is Convinced That
the Two Thousand People He
Found In the Arctic Circle of Canada Are Descendants of "Lief the
Lucky," Who Migrated From Iceland About'the Year 1,030.
Further details are now arriving concerning the discovery in the lev north
of Canada made by Prof. Vill jalnuir
Stefansson of a lost tribe of 2,000
white people who are believed to be
direct descendants of the following ot
Lief Erickson (Lief the Lucky), who
went to Greenland from Iceland about
the year 1,000 nnd later discovered the
north coast ol America.
The people living oi Victoria island,
thirty degrees east of the mouth of
the Mackenzie river, more than 2,000
miles by the coast line, are still in
the ttone age. While the civilization
of nearly 1,000 years has grown they
have stood still,
The tribe of white people, who Stefansson declares are purely of Norwegian origin, never Bad seen other
people oi tlieir own color. Their number is about 2,000. More than ball ol
them have red hair, blue eyes, fair
skins and light eyebrows and beards.
They live on both shores ot Coronation gulf, on the mainland of North
America and Victoria island, which
formerly was known as Prince Edward Island.
It was for this people that Roald
Amundsen, discoverer of the south
pole, searched while making bis trip
through the northwest passage.
Amundsen, it will be te.iiiinhered,
sa.d natives had told hi:u ot a nice
of whits people living tu the i rth-
ward. He sent un exped.tion along
the shore of tie is luu), I ut raw nothing of the triba, nor did tliey see anything of him.
Many other Ar.'tic explorers have
brought down irom the north stories ol
tiiis tr.be of lost White people, but
the tale came lo be regarded as an
Indian legend.
Ethnoloyically, the newly-disco.vered
tribe is entirely different from the
Eskimo, not only in the shape of thc
skull, but in general feat-ires, color of
eyes and texture of hair. They have
not a single trace of tbe Mongolian
type.
Wliile they retain some of tht customs of the Norsemen who were lost
from Iceland in the twelfth century,
their method ol living is entirely different. The conditions under whicii
they live are of the most primitive
sort. No vegetation, except moss and
a few stunU-d willows, grows in tlieir
habitat-
They are msat and fish enters. The
island abounds with caribou and the
sea with seal and other fauna. They
use bows made of willow bound together with sinews and their arrows
are tipped witn Hint and native copper, wnich is pritd out of ledges or
found in stream b Us on the mainland.
Their knives are made of copper, with
horn handles, and made in much tlie
same manner as. implements were
made by the early Norsemen who in-
n&bited Greenland. "
Like nearly every savage tribe tbey
toave a legend ol u. flood wbich a long '
H3SS a=�� devastated the World.   ThU
ylegend,   anthorpologiato   sny,   is   unl-
versa! among suvn-e tribes and therefore cannot he regarded us proof that
this particular tribe is descended from
Christian forefathers.
Prof. Stefansson accounts for their
existence by the fact that in tbe year
982 Greenland wus discovered and settled   by 8,000 Icelanders.    One  thousand of these people sailed from Nor-
|way and missed Greenland, but land-'
ed   on   the  coast   of   Newfoundland,
,where they established a colunv, built
fourteen churches, two monasteries   4
nunnery   and   other    structures,    the
ruins of which are still standing.
These people crossed to the coast of
America for timber. There were no
Eskimos at this time, either on Greenland or Newtoundland. The Norsemen
settled 111 two colonics, one on tiie
north and one on the south tide ol
Newfoundland.
In the fourteenth century Eskimo
came from the nortn and exterminated
the north settlement. Their record
was complete till 1441. when the black
p.ague scourged Europe and tor two
centuries communication between
newicundland and the ,old country
was cut off.

communication was restored
the people of the second tettlenieiit
were missing. Their graveyards,
buildings and other adjuncts ul their
���emiciviliiation were found . The theory was formed tbat the people bad
drifted to a settlement further west
across the narrow straits, where they
intermingled with Eskimo, whom tbey
t(H,k along witn turn to the island on
wti.ch their descendants make their
neadquurtcrs.
Tbey still use the bone needles thnt
were invented by their forefathers,
and many of their methods-ol life are
similar to those oi their progenitors.
Different environment, a mor- riijor-
0-1 c.imate and a lack oi vegetation,
however, have changed many of tlieir
'usages.
In one place on the island Prof. Ste-
fansson discovered a conical stone
house which bears a striking restui-
blance to the houses built in Greenland and Newfoundland by the Norse-
men who l.rat Inhabited tho.se plact-s.
Their house* are made of snow, with
a roof oi driftwood which on rare oe-
casions ia found on the coact. The
���tray fragments of wood are highly
prized.

I shoes are cut to come well Up to the

underskirt which reaches to the waist

pieces hangs down behind.  The whole
outfit is strapped together by means

Slide and bone.
Our Kindly Queen.
Although one would hardly call
Queen Mary a sentimental women,
she is capable of greal kindness and
thoughtfulr.ess. A little series of acts
done almost in secrecy, or at any rale.
without any of the publicity and ostentation that are the worst features
of the public activities of most royal
women, has just become known.
A short time ago an old and faithful
servant of the Queen's was ordered to
a hospital by the docU.r.  Ouee.i Mary,
however, refused to allow her to go to
l one  ot  the London  hospital?, despite
\the tact that put'.enta  have there the
best ol  treatment and  attention.     Instead,  the Queen  paid  the  lees  of a
private nursing home for her s-ervant
Nor did her kindness end there. Busy
^ as she is with public engagements, the
Queen found t:'r:;e to visit ber old servant daily and personally see that she
was well looked after.
[    Recently, at the Queen's instiL-ation,
a  larre  house  owned   by   the crown
waj set opart for lhe use of old royal
servants  whn bnd  retired   because  of
illness or old age.   The Queen, a few
days ago, told a personal friend that
she had  seldom  spent  happier dayi
than those sbe devoted to personal supervision of the furnishings and
coratious of tbe house.
The Municipal Council of the City of New Westminster having by resolution determined and specified that it is desirable to carry out the following works, that is to say: To lay Outfall and Trunk Sewers and works contingent thereto in Section 2, ot the Sapperton Sewerage Scheme, to which

The Story She Told Jack!

By IZOLA FORRESTER.
���H-I-
So you are going home, senor?"
The girl looked straight ahead at the
wide sweep of level prairie pasture,
her red lips parted ln n smlle-a most
tantalizing, annoying smile Carruthers
thought us be caught a glimpse of It
sideways. i
"I'erhnps," be returned moodily, "1
have stayed too long already."
"Von do not like Texas, senor?"
"You did not call roe senor last
week." He bent toward her slightly,
tout she did not turn ber head. "Vou
called me���.lack."
She laughed and flashed a hasty
glance nt blm from ber soft dark
eyes.
"That was a long time ago���last
week-hut 1 wtll call you lt again lf
you wish. Mr. Jack."
Carruthers did not notice the eon-
-cession or her gay scorn. He stared
out to wbere tbe cattle hrowsed-a
sea of still, brown wiives. hundreds
of tbem. motionless und peaceful lo
the morning sunrise. Here und there
on tbe outskirts stood a flgure of a
borse wltb a silent rider watching tbt,
grazing herd. Cnrruthers' gaze swept
over the mass until It rested oo out
berder at the extreme north. Evei*
wltb tbe distance of nearly a mile between thera he knew whnt the flgure
looked like, knew that it was watching them ns he wus watching tt. h
was not a pleasant knowledge.
"Vou bave changed yonr minil. Seoo-
rlta ICltn,'' he said liltierly. "alnce Hamon cnme to the ranch. I was very
happy���In Texas���until your old sweetheart appeared."
Rita laughed again, dellclously.
warmly, with a full enjoyment of Ills
mood.
"Vou are not tired of Texas, Mr.
Jack." she snld merrily. "You nre tired
of me���ah. yes. I say you are. Vou
lore me so madly, mo entrancing!}',
until somebody el*, comes who also
loves me ho mildly, so eiltrnuclogly,
too, and then all at once you are Jealous und distant und dUsntistied. unci.
presto, now. this minute, you May you
will leave Texas, you will never, never

Mr. Jack. When a man love, he doe*
nut sulk nnd ride away. He stays and
tights. See!" Sbe held up her hnnd and
snapped her small tanned lingers
stinrply In the sir. "1 would nol give
thut for the silly kid lover who rides

know the least bit 1 loved hlm be

"1 would carry you to the end of the

"It ls sure deatb to try to ride with

The stern masterfulness of bis tone
startled her. lie had never spoken like

"Hold the horses," be ordered. Sho
obeyed, watching him In breathless silence. Tbe hrown cloud ou the pralrle
was becoming more and more distinct There was .p heavy, low rumble
In the air like ror off thunder. Carruthers drew a cigarette cuse from bis
pocket and after hunting carefully be
produced one mutch.
"That Is tbe only one I hnve," he
mild.   "Pray that It doesn't go out."
He struck It on the box. The faint
.flume wavered ln tbe southeasterly
breece, caught the end of tbe cigarette
aud lit It Before the mutch went out
Carruthers smelted It nnd Set flre to
the grass. It was dry and yellow from
the sun nnd caught the blaze with a
snap. The wind fanned It. and a wavering line of tbln smoke slid like a
snake along the roots for several feet
The horMeM reared and kicked ut the
first whiff, nnd Carruthers seized the
bridles from the girl.
"Take the cigarette." be said, handing It to ber. "Keep It alight and set
fire to the grass as far as you cun
reach ln a straight line facing the
north. Tbe wind ls from the southeast
and will blow the fire toward tbe herd.
It may turn them."
Holding the plunging, trembling
horses, he watched her. There was no
fear, no sign of weakness. She was
alert and sure In her touch us she
knelt bere nnd tliere In the grass and

tore a bunch of grass, tied it with another wisp and set it blazing like a
torch. In another minute n wall of
smoke and smoldering flame closed

"Come back," culled Carruthers. The
herd were not a quarter of a mile from
them. He could sec tbe leaders, heads
down, and behind them line after line
of tossing horns.
"Wlll tbey reach us?" whispered Rita
as she stood close beside him. her face

Better Than Ringing
Doorbells
A piano manufacturer recently made a
house-to-house convass. He's one of those
men with an absurd fear of the "waste-
circulation" bug-aboo���cannot ��3t away
from the haunting* thought that only 10 oq|
of every 100 readers of-a newspaper raajl
be possible buyers of his goods.
So he refused to advertise, and went
cariVaSsing���inviting people <to come to
his piano recitals. Then he wondered why
they didn't come.
Tbla la why:
Ha WASN'T reaching the people.
His caifvassers rang every door-bell
In town. They talked to some one In
every house.
But one In every h6useholf, Isn't
enough���particularly If it doesn't happen to be the right peraon���It wan a
servant or a child, the woman ot the
houae waa seldom seen; the man ct
the house, never.
Now, it the piano maker had placed
an ad. in the newspaper, It would nave
reached thousands, where the canvas-
aers could reach only hundreds.'
Ami even though only 10 per cent.
of tho readers are actual piano buyers,
thta does not mean that the advertising read by the other 90 per cent Is
wasted. Advertising talks, not only
to tba prospective buyer, but alio to
tats wife, hls grown-up sons and daugh
ters, his mother���even hla mother-in-
law. Their coaxing will help to convince the head of the house���and
pretty soon there will b. a ptano In
that home.
This and dozens of almlhu1 cases
which might be cited to show that
"waste circulation" ls an empty bits-
aboo, and ahould deter no oae.
Take the motor truck.   It can be
sold only to large firms.  Tet a motor
truck manufacturer la successfully advertising ln daily papera.   He realize*
"that he must reach, not only the man-.
ngers ot the concerns tbat require tbe
trucks, but also their directors, their
foremen, their head machinists, etc.
It ts found In actual practice that this
advertising radiates tn a thouaand di-
rectkmm and again converges moat astonishingly to lnflu��rrtoa the bouae that
has made up Its miod tbat horse truck
lug ls too costly and inefficient.
