Need of  Foghorn   at Sandheads In View of Late-
nets of Season.
Deputy   Mlnl.ter    Scott   to   Address
Progressive Association Banquet
on Friday.
Believing that the lightship recently removed, from the Sandheads of
the Fraser river ought to be returned
to Its old position at once if the In*
terests of the shipping men ot Westminster and the Kraser valley wer*
to be protected, tbe executive committee of the Progressive association
decided last night to approach Mr. J.
D. Taylor, M.P., at present at Ottawa,
to see what could be done in the matter.
Many complaints have been made
by masters and officers of ships plying on the Kraser river at the absence
of tho lightship for about two months
from its position, as it was a great
aid to navigation.
Danger to  Navlcatlon.
During foggy weather the lightship
was of inestimable value to th"
mariners as it Combined a large fog
horn which sounded wben occasion
required It. Its absence from th?
Sandheads wlll leave vessels without
sny guidance, whatever should heav>
weather set In, and things would by
come extremely dangerous for navigators. Tbe question was considered ot
great importance by the members ol
the executive and the shipping committee was Instructed to see what
could be done to have the matter set

"Follow the Kraser." The Becond
prize was awarded Mr. W. A. Wells,
secretary of tbe warden of the penitentiary, his slogan Iieing "Watch
Westminster." Neither of the slogans
were adopted by the association.
In connection with financial campaigns a letter was received from Mr
A. Miller, of the Industrial association, of Calgary, stating that the man
who conducted the $100,000 campaign
in that city received flve per cent, of
the proceeds and the agreement was
that if he did not raise the desired
sum hc would receive but his expenses. ���
Mr. Scott Coming.
The entertainment committee reported that a luncheon would be held
ln the dining room of the new
Premier hotel at 1 o'clock on Fridav
afternoon. -Seating capacity for 125
people would be provided and tickets
for that number will be sold by the

bers of the executive. Deputy Mln
Ister of Agriculture Scott wlll be the

Gray from Mayor Lee, who was then
at Toronto on hts way back from thc
old country, where he personally
supervised the aale.
No particulars arte contained in the
wire concerning the time of the sale

Tliose who hesitate to believe the
much abused statement that the 1912
exhibition of the Royal Agricultural
and Industrial society will create a
record should be privileged to attend
one of the weekly committee and
executive meetings held in the board
of trade rooms at the city hall. The
meeting last night was well attended,

some people have been unable to secure the space they desired.
Every day will be a big one. On
Tuesday, the first day of the exhibition, will be the Minto cup lacrosse

Messrs. George Bury and F. W. Peters
Motored  Here YasttsrAapa-rs.   .
May  Return.
On a flying trip of inspection, Mr.
George Bury, vice-president and general manager of the C. P. R. lines in
the West, and Mr. F. W. Peters, gen-
oral superintendent of the Western
division of the same company, motored into New Westminster yesterday
afternoon, looked around the property
of the company in this city and
speeded back to Vancouver.
The visit was in the nature of a
surprise to the employees of the C.
P. R. here, and in fact Mr. Ed. Goui't,
the local agent, was on Columbia
street at the time and did not get the
chance to meet the visitors. However, they left a note for Mr. Goulet
saying they had little time to devote
here, as important business called
them to the Terminal City. .
It was thought that the two visitors
would be in Victoria at this time in
company with Sir Thomas Shaugh
nessy, who is staying there, and this
flying trip was entirely unexpected.
Mr. Goulet was sorry, indeed, not to
have received word of the.'r intended
trip or else he would have made arrangements for them to have made a
tour of the city.
However, lt ia possible that they
may return before the party leaves
for the East, at which time due
notice is expected as to their plana.

arches that spanned the main street,
one of the arches bearing Chinese inscriptions,   erected   by   tbe   Chinese

presentation  of the civic  address of

Kentvllls, N.S., I* Watching What
Funds Will Do.
Seldom do we bear ol a thickly-
yooded area being converted wi'.'..in
a year into a practical farm. Generally the transformation extends over
a number of years, often a lifetime.
But that depends entirely upon the
capital of the settler, and in the case
of the Dominion Government the matter of mere money is a trilling consideration. The new Dominion Experimental Farm being established near
Kentville. N.S., is a striking illustration of what can be done in s short
time in the way of changing landscape
from the purely picturesque to the
strongly utilitarian, when the fund*
are available to cover all expense.
A piece of the Annapolis \ alley,
stretching over 3C0 acres, which late-
| ly came into the possession nf the
���Dominion Department of Agriculture;
is rapidly undergoing that c'isngj.
The transformation will not he complete, however, for of thst sres scarcely 200 acres ia arable land, snd the
remainder must serve the aesthetic
more than the useful. A ravine cutting across the newly-made farm,

Properly speaking, the entire area will
be made useful.
The portion of the farm requiring
clearing is to lie planted in crchanl,
with about fifty nere-" reserved for ile-
raonstratlnns In mixed farming, particularly beef production. The idea ill
procuring tlie land was to establish
a demonstration ground where the
Annapolis fruit-growers might see nn
orchard planted and cared for under
modern methods by a practical horticultural expert. The land was purchased in the summer nf IDIti liy tlie
Nova Scotia Government and later
turned over t'i tlie Department of

Fight in Court. Over Burnaby Franchise���Ratepayer. Did Not Ratify
Vancouver, Sept. 17.���That, If the
BritiKh Columbia Electric Railway
Company Is an English company,
wbich has obtained a license from
the provincial legislature to carry on
business in this province. It, therefore, comes under the Provincial
Companies Act and is by law restrained from operating street railways or
tramways ln any part of, British Columbia, was the striking point raised
by Mr. S. S. Taylor, K.C, in arguing
the caae for Burnaby in the litigation
brought by that municipality against
the ac.E.lt. Company in which it ls
sought to invalidate the company's
frapchlse In tho district.
Mr. Taylor read clauses from the
Companies Act in support of bis contention.
Proceedings from this feature of his
case for the municipality, Mr. Tay
lor then attacked the action of the
municipality tn passing a bylaw conferring a 40-yearg franchlae and tht
right to operate in any streets in the
"In order for their actions to have
been valid the council must have been
acting under the Municipal Clause
Act," contrnded the counsel. "If this
were so, then they had the right to
pass the bylaw, but, before finally
considering It and making It opera
tive, they must have presented It to
the ratepayers, which they did not
Then, counsel continued, special
privileges had been granted the company In the bylaw which were of a
very sweeping nature and should certainly have received the consent of
the ratepayers. There was certainly
no provision in the act, which permitted of thc municipality delegating the
powers of arranging rates of fare to
the company.
Mr. L. G. McPhllllps, K.C, counsel
for the B.C.E.R., commenced his argument yesterday afternoon and wlll
continue this morning.
ln reply to Mr. Taylor's argument
,, as to the powers of tho B.C.E.R. company to operate in British Columbia
under the CompHiiles Act, Mr. McPhillips reviewed the succesive acts
which led to the forming of the Consolidated Railway Company In 189j>.
He showed tliat between 1889 and
1S96 street railway development In
Vancouver. Now Westminster and adjacent districts had been carried on
by different companies, which wer3
empowered to construct and to equip
and operate tram lines. The Consolidated Hallway Companies Act, counsel put forward, gave the debenture
holders of tbe new company formed
In 1886 the rlitht to sell out the stock.
This was acquired by the B.C.E.R.
Companv. who. Mr. McPliillips argued
acquired all the privileges awarded
in tho successive acts passed in connection with the formation of the different   tram   companies.
"Our charter conies from Englan 1
rnd our powers are not limited under
the Consolidated Companies Act"
maintained the company's lawyer,
"while the powers given in the previous acts are retained."
Tlie hearing is being continued.

Toronto, Sept. 17.���Dr. II. B. Bryce
medical superintendent for the Domlu
ion government, delivering the first
address before the second annual
Congress of the Canadian Public
Health Association, asked tbese ques
"How shall Canada save her people from physical and mental degeneracy, due to Industrial conditions as
seen In the great cities of older epilation?"
"Htow long can a city essentially
of raw material, by virtue of geographical location and extent of territory
still Jargely tyideveloped, continue tt
develop normally, and prosper when
it has shown a displacement oT rural
population during the last ten years

In the history of any people, and au

Answering these questions Doctor
Bryce aaid tbe existing conditions de
manded a lessened cost of agrlcultur
al production, careful preparation and
conservation of the farm products
and the cheapening of transportation
between consumer and producer Mor��
mixed and Intensive farming would
have a constant and profitable em
uloyment for the farm laborers. Dr
Bryce condemned the big packers for
eliminating competition in buying by
dividing up the territory amongst
themselves, by freezing out the small
drovers and butchers, and by getting

High Financial Authority Sounds Note
of Warning Concerning Present
Vancouver, Sept. 17.���"I am quite
ready to admit that Canada has developed amazingly since rny last visit
In 1878, but as a financial man from
Great Britain, representing large financial interests, I am not satisfied
with the present population. The last
census placed the population at eight
millions. Take from that number the
Indians, the women and others two
young or too old to transact business
or to ake part in the development of
the Dominion, and you ' have about
3,400,000 men left. That ls a-small
number to develop this great country.

The speaker was Mr. H. C. M.
Bourke of New Broad Street, London,

He ls one of the greatest financial
authorities In England and bas frequently been delegated by the British
Government to make confidential reports on financial propositions.
He sounded a not of warning regarding the wtid-cat propositions ln
England and also as to the discounting of the future Indulged in by real
estate speculators in Vancouver and
throughout western Canada.
"English capital," he continued, "ls
becoming very nervous. It was very
badly bitten at Johnnesburg, for instance, where we invested a lot of
money which went into the pocket?
of German Jews. That Is a city which
is backed by the wealth of the Rand
Mines, but there was a real estate
boom started there a few years ago
and today property can be bought
for sixty per cent, lower than It could
five years ago.
"The same thing may happen in
Vancouver or other western towns
and cities. You have been getting the
surplus capital and population from
the Mother Land and the United
3tates, but once the Unionists get
'nto power there will be a great
change. Th'' capital which is bein?

"The ban''s are an unfailing barometer. Well, money can be borrowed in London for two per cent, wh'l"
'n Vancouver eight per cent is de

Some Honors That Have Been Paid
V to  Men by  Friends.
Sir David Wilkie, the great artist,
died at sea. He had set out f r the
East with a view to petting new idea*,
and it was on his return journey that
he died, on the steamship (Xrient, just
after she had left the Rook of Gibraltar. This incident fired the genius
of Turner to such an extent that he
painted a picture which, if all Wil-
kie's own canvases were destroyed,
would keep the name of the great
Scottish artist green. This is the famous canvas, to be seen sny day in the
National Gallery. "Peace: Burial at
*ca of the Body of Sir Dfevid Wilkie. '
.This is undoubtedly the most remarkable tribute ever paid by one cnjat
artist to another and might? *e Ut*
envy of kings.
There are two notable tributes nf a
similar character in the twin realm of
literature. When John Keats was dying at the early age of twenty-flve,
in Rome, he said thnt his epitaph
should be, 'Here lies one whose name
was write in water." That was tha
poet's modesty, for his poetni wiil
keep his name alive as long as tho
language in which they were written
survives. But even if such were tint
the case the poem written by Shelley
as a lament for Rests���"Adnnais"���
would make his nsme immortal. Keats
was little known to the general publii*
at his death, but Shelley knew ati'l
loved him, and took this splendid and
generous means of glorifying his dead
Another case of the same -kind it
the "In Memoriam" of Tennyson, lt
was written to the memory of his
dead friend, Arthur Hallam, a niHH
who did not live long enough to mako
much fame of his own, although ail
his friends prophesied for him a very
distinguished career had ho lived;
and his memory is perpetuated by hu
connection with the great poet laureate and by his greatest masterpiece.
Hallam was engaged to Tennyson's
sister, and thus there was double
cause why the poet should feel deeply the loss of his friend.

Ma'-ch  Will  Show Strength of Westminster's   Eleven���Minto  Cu?
Needs Good Company.
The opening game of the Vancouver and Dlatrict League will be staged
on Moody Park Saturday afternoon
when the Thistles of Vancouver will
meet the Rovers of New Westminster. This ahould be the first real
test of the standing of the teams in
the league.
The strength of the Rovers Is being
watched with Interest in Vancouver
and the star players that Manager
Grant has gathered together to represent the Royal City are known already to the Terminal City fans.
While the score In the memorable
game against the Celtics did not indicate much superiority on the Rovers
aide, on points of play, the local boya
should have won by a much larger
score. With the Thistles however it
will be far different. In their forward
line are to be seen several former
international stars of the Old Country, and if the Rovers can Only get
the edge on this team the rest will
be plain sailing. This game will be
,-n added attraction to the visit of
tho Governor General and play will
not comme Se until the reception
prreramme is nearly completed.
The  players on  the  Rovers had  a
t'.ne work-out last evening on the park
grounds and  their  trainer  is  paying
��*;>pc;.al attention to getting the boys
In trim for the approaching battle.
As this Is the only team which la

There are several cups which are

President Quinn Rounds Out All Embracing Scheme for Canadian
Montreal, Sept. 17.���It can be announced this afternoon that a real
National Hockey association, stretch
lng from coast to coast, is now a fore
gone conclusion.
President Quinn, of the National
Hockey association, has been working
on tbls plan for tbe last six months
and the final spike has been driven In
it, bo to speak, by the arrival of Rolli.v
Norman from the lower provinces.
A letter similar to the one received
by Mr. Bannerman, and which was
printed in last night's Star, was writ
ten by Mr. Quinn to the Paciflc coast
and Maritime districts, and Mr. Norman came in person to bring the response to tbla, while Bruce Rldpatti
brought word from the Patricks that
they were agreeable to the plan.
A meeting will, therefore, be held
one of these days at which rpresenta
Uvea from all the districts will as
?etnble, and a hockey commission will
then be formed to act as court of
last resort In cases of disputes which
the four district leagues will be unable to settle themselves. Thereby
the game will be put exactly upon the
basis upon which baseball is being
run in the United States.
It will mean that the National
Hockey association will consist of a
Central, Toronto. Montreil, Ottawa
and Quebec district; a Maritime dis
trict; a Soo district, and a Paciflc
coast district.

Two Vancouver Sportsmen Meet With

The trials and tribulations ot tho

one might judge ao from the trying
and somewhat costly experiences ot
two Vancouver followers of the gun
during a week-end hunting trip amid
the big timbers of Surrey Municipality.
It seems that the two men. mounted
not on fiery steeds, but sitting gallantly astride common everyday bicycles,
cf the guaranteed non-bucking variety, set out heavily armed on Saturday for the haunts of the wary deer.

cooking utensils tor a few davs outing, they camped In the bush near
**>e Yale Poad and spent an uneventful evening with nothing but a sky
full ot stars as a roi.f above their
somnolent  heads.

the huntsmen began, At first tht-.
pri^snccts for tbem coming triumphantly home with the bacw were exceedingly promising, ns In the early

probably have prevented him entering
the political arena altogether.
As a young man���liis brother, Mr.
John H. Parnell, tells us. in T. P.'*
Magazine���the Irish politician fell in
hive with a pretty Wicklow girl of
gocd lamiy. with whom he bunted a
great deal; but the affair came to no.
thing. Hnd Parnell remained heart-free
until lie visited Paris in 1*70, and
there met a young heiress, to whom
lie became engaged.
They parted for a time, she lo po
to Rome and he tp return to Ireland,
nnd ultimately the girl wrote saying
she was returning home, without men-
tinning anything about an engagement. Parnell followed her, snd the
���engagement   seemed   to   be   renewed,
when Miss W  suddenly told him
she was not g'.ing tu marry him.
"making the excuse that he was only
nn Irish gentleman, without*euflicient
means to marry, with no name in
public, and that she could not marry
anyone without n great public name."
This dumbfounded "Charley," who,

nell plunged inti. politics, with wliat
lesult tlie world knows. He never met
the lady Bgsin, but, according to the
iiuth'irity mentioned, another heiress
in liiter years proposed to "Charley,"
who left I'aris to escape her.
This romantic episode oj political
l.fe culls to mind the jilting of tho
well-known Ulllotlflt politician. Mr.
yenry Chaplin, who years ago was
engaged to l.mly Florence Paget, one
of the loveliest women in Kngiish society, iu fact, she was known as thd
"Pocket Venus."
The engagement had heen publicly
unced and the day of the msr-

leaked out that I.ady Paget had eloped with the Inte Marquess of Hasting',

Mr. Chaplin recovered lrom the blow,

The machinery Is rapidly being Installed In the newly erected premises
of the< Crystal Dairy Company, Limited, at 655 Sixth street, and It ls expected that within the next few days
the work wlll be completed. At full
capacity it Is calculated that the plant

milk a day. The main building ls
60x40 feet vOn the main floor the
churning, bottling and Ice-cream making plant will be placed. Electric pow
er will be used throughout with the
exception of the ice making plant for
which a 35 horse power "Corliss" engine wlll be used to handle the distilled and condensed water. The Ice
manufactory will be what ls generally known aa a 16 ton plant, having
a refrigerator capacity of 16 tons and
an ice making capacity of 7% tons.
Leading off the main floor are the
business offices and two refrigerating
rooms. A "Shark" freezer Ib also to
be found on this floor which has a
temperaturie of ten below zero and Ib
used for handling ice cream. On the
basement floor are the Ice plant and
the boilers. When milk is brought
In, the B. C B. R. Ry. spur on to the
oroperty enables the cars to be run
alongside the elevator and the milk
is taken on the elevator platform up
to the third floor where lt is emptied
into the receiving tank. From this it
runs through the clarifier and the
���asteuriser and over the brine cooler
into the bottle filler. The bottles are
then placed In the cold store where
the milk is thoroughly cooled off be
fore delivery. On the top floor a
room is being fitted up as a testing
room and chemical laboratory. The
ice cream freezer, manufactured by
the Creamery Package Manufacturing
Company of Chicago, which has been
installed, has a continuous capacity
of 50 gallons an hour. In connection
