NEW WESTMINSTER, B.C., THURSDAY MORNING, AUGUST 1, 1912
PItlCB HVK CENTB.
LACROSSE WAR     ! WELCOME TO H.R.H.
IS CONCLUDED
Salmon Bellies Will Now Play
In Vancouver on Saturday Next.
Matt Barr's Efforts Toward Peace Are
Successful���Game in Exhibition
Week.
The flre and smoke ot the lacrosse
battle which has been waging between the Vancouver and Westminster teams the past two weeks made
way for bright sunshine yesterday
afternoon, and beginning on Saturday the schedule of the season cf 1912
will be continued.
While there may be some fans in
the city who perhaps disagree with
the successful ending of the squabble
in that the Salmon Bellies did not
receive all they asked for, there are
hundreds of others who hall the settlement with delight. For the past
two weeks there .have been no big
games out on the coast, a thing unrecorded for several seasons, and
everyone seems to be Itching to witness the remaining struggles for the
Minto cup.
Matt's Good Offices.
Too much credit cannot be given
Mr. Matt Barr, acting manager of the
Vancouver team, for the way in which
he approached the Westminster
executive three days ago, ancl asked
for terms. Matt appeared very
perturbed after the last meeting nf
the B. C. I... A. and told botn hls associates and also the Westminster delegates that there must be some way
out of the difficulty.
Terms Arranged.
Yesterday's agreement means that
the game of July 20, which was dp-
faulted bv the Salmon Bellies, stands
ns a win fnr Vancouver. The grime of
July 27. which the Vancouver team
and also President Marry Cowan
claimed as a victory was struck out
and will be played In the Royal City
later in the season.
ThiiR It will be seen that the Westminster team has n lead of two gimea
so far In 'he season, while the remainder nf the games will be plaved
on home anil home grounds. In addition, the exhibition game scheduled
to be played hero on Julv 6 wlll be
staged on the r-ark oval �����">me day
during the provincial pvhlbWon at a
time when It will mean much financially to the local r.ffleials.
Jones In  East.
Just how this latest agreement be-
tween the warring factions of the
]���agr�� will affeet the visit of Con
.'ones ir, t'ie East remains to be seen.
The Torrntn News, quoting tl'e secretary cf the Toronto Lacrosse club, has
this to sav on the rn.ittor:
"The ohanoe is that Con Is really
in the East to Me If he can sell some
of his stars to the Big Four teams, lt
is said he has contracts calling for
(30,000 on hand and- If hc could be
relieved of them he would be glad to
get out of what has proved an expensive business. If he is looking to
sell he might dispose of a couple of
men to ench of the Big Pour teams."
However, Mr. Jones' visit to the
East has not worried many citizens
of New Westminster. The Royals
were never playing better lacrosse.
and with the lead they have, this
talk about Con arranging for the
Minto cun games with the N. It, U.
and the Big Four looks to many to be
a little premature.
Bcvs at Practice.
Last evening evervone of the Salmon Bellies was out for a hard grinding practice. Thev put Bome spice
Into their work nnd are determined to
repeat the Dominion Pay trick when
they beard the Vancouver players In
their own den.
The remainder cf tho schedule as 11

Aug. 3��� V'nqtminster at Vancouver.
Aug. 10���-Vancouver at Westm'nster.
Aug. 17���Westminster a' Vancouver.

IS BEING PREPARED
Council Has Matter in Hand���Details
Awaited Before Full Announcement.
Mr. C. II. Stuart Wade, the publicity
commissioner, sia.eU yesteruay tua.
in view of the tact that the time of
the proposed visit of the Duke of
Connaught was growing nearer aud
because a good many people wcrt
rather anxious to know just what
Westminster was going to do iu regard to providing a suitable celebration, the public were entitled to the
information that a program was being
euvolvcd and tbat the welcome extended to the Duke would be one in
every way worthy of the city.
"Before Mayor Lee left for England," said Mr. Wade, "he foresaw
the need of preparing for this visit,
and left instructions for drawing up
a proper program. This program Is
no,*' in hand, but cannot be given
out at this stage as a number of items
included in It are as yet undecided."
At present Mr. Wade is awaiting
acme information concerning the
Duke's visit, and when this is received he will be prepared to submit
a specific plan to the council for Its
consideration.
The various branches of the welcome will then be allocated, it is understood, to the different public bodle:-,
in the city.
TYPHOID RAVAGES

Ottawa, July .11.���The outbreak of
typhoid today shows no abatement.
During the past two weeks there has
averaged fifty cases per day, making
a total at the present under medical
care of C6S.
The hospitals arc full to overflowing wliile tiie ambulances cannot cope
wilh the number of calls'. The situation Is made more acute by the fact
that many of the nurses are away
from thc city on thoir summer vacation and assistance has been asked
for from neighboring cities.
Another phase of tbe situation is
shown up by the fact tliat the gov-
ernment ls seriously considering the
withdrawal of the $50,000 grant to the
exhibition on the grounds that it
would endanger the thousands of people who annually visit the city during
the fair if tliey come in contact with
the alleged impure water.
The civic authorities aro making
every efTort to stamp out the epidemic
nnd yesterday commenced treatin.e
the water In the hope of destroying
tho bacteria which Ib said to be In
the supply.

ANOTHER MURDER
SHOCKS NEW YORK
On the eve of their departure to
take up a new sphere of usefulness iu
ihe government land office to be
placed In operation ln Vancouver today, Mr. John Mahoney and Mr. Peter
it. Grant, of the provincial lands department here, were presented Witn
handsome tokens by their fellow employees of the government, In the
provincial building yesterday afternoon.
Mr. Mahoney, who has Just received
his appointment as government agent
for Vancouver, was engaged In finishing up the last details of his work
ln the local office yesterday previous
to his departure, when Mr. J. J. Cambridge, the registrar, came in and requested that he and Mr. P. II. Grant
shouid attend an' Important case which
was being conducted in the supreme
court chambers.
All unsuspecting, Messrs. Mahoney
and Grant walked Into the court room
and took their seats. Then in filed
the balance of the government employees, and Mr. John Sprott, the
roads superintendent, took his place
in the Judicial chair.
The registrar arose and to the
amazement of Mr. Mahoney and Mr.
Grant charged them formally with
faking leave of the city of New Westminster without the consent of their
co-workers.
Addressing the accused "Judge"
Sprott said that he was experiencing
a pleasure In dealing with such prls
oners, and few judges, he thought,
could boast of being happy at passing
lentence. Under the circumstances
he was disposed to be lenient and
would therefore sentence Mr. Mahoney
*o accept a leather suitcase, and Mr.
Grant a handsome Gladstone bag.
The costs of thc case would also be
issessed against the accused whe
would experience a Iost in severing
*>eir relations with such a congen'.a'
crowd of fellow workers.
Mr. Mahoney and Mr. Grant re
nlied suitably and manv of the
friends and confreres cf both added
thf'r quota of praise.
Half past two saw the conclusion
"f tbc trial, which Is held a'? unique
inasmuch ns it reflects great credit
<mi the defendants Instead of dishonor.
Building permits issued for the first
seven montiis ofthe year total $8S0,
128; of this amount $06,700 is accredited to the mouth Of July jusi
concluded.
The totals for July, while very fai
in excess cf those of last year, art
considered disappointing In a sense
a3 several very large permits which
were expected to be flled did not coipt
in, and consequently the aggregate
was Just a trifle lower than in tin-
month of June when the pernltts total
led $96,350.
Last evening before the building inspector's office closed, and just a.c
Mr. George Wolfenden was about tc
close the month'3 accounts a represen
tatiye of tho Powers Contracting
company arrived and-filed a $17,600
permit .for the- erection of the Arem.
exhibition building, thus bringing the
totals up to a fairly respectable flgure
It Is conceded by those who have-
been following building closely in
New Westminster that August will be
the record month this year, A permit of nearly $100,000 will be issued
within a week for the Tipperary Pari
High school and several other large
permits for business blocks and stores
are pending. The steady demand for
and supply of, residences will also add
its quota in rolling up a splendid total
for the month.

dais, where Mnyor Primrose read an
addreas to which the Duke appropriately replied.
The great increase In industrial
ictivity all over British Columbia, bu:
particularly in and around Westminster, Victoria and Vancouver within
.he past tew years is clearly indicated
n the added activity of tbe government boiler inspector's department, o
which Mr. Juhn Peck ls the chief hi
jpector.

EIGHT OVER FREE
TOLLS CONTINUES
8. Secretary cf War Suggests the
C?IIUinn of Legislation���Toll
Figures Must Be Cet
Washington, July 31.���A request
that the Panama canal legislation be
spilt Into separate bills ao that the
flght over free tolls may not hold up
tbe Immediate passage of other provisions, was made at the house session today by Secretary of War Stimson. He informed the interstate commerce commission that it will take a
year to organize an operating organ
for the canal.
Unless funds are immediately voted
for this purpose, Stimson pointed out.
It might go over for another year and
the canal opening date would flnd the
big ditch without a competent operating force.
It ls also necessary, Stimson believes. If economy Is to be enforced
for money to be appropriated at once
for the construction of dry docks so
that the machinery now being
gradually retired In the canal building
can be utilized in the now work.
The secretary also said It was ab-
scli'tclv necessarv that the maximum
and minimum toll figurei be set this
season, so tbat the world's shipping
interests which make their contracts
sompt'mes two vearr, In advance, may
be able to figure the freight charges.
According to Mr. A. W. McLeod
who made a trip down to Colebrook,
Hazelmere and other points yesterday, the outlook is for a splendid
grain crop in the Serpentine, Mud
Bay, Cloverdale, Clover valley. Hall's
prairie and other valley districts this
year.
The grain is heavy on account of
the extra amount of rain this season
and though somewhat late in maturing, judging from the look of It the
farmers expect the crop will be a
success.
The hay crop, which is at present
being harvested, is well up to expectations, though the farmers have had a
little more later with it this year
than usual on account of the spasmodic showers cf rain that fell during haying time. The hay that Is left
on the CcHj now appears to be pretty
well cured, and If the weather keeps
up it will all be gathered soon.
A few more warm days, stated Mr.
McLeod yesterday, ought to work
wonders on the growing grain also, as
it Is at present In a state just bordering on the mature.
While down at Boundary Bay, Mr.
McLeod visited a new shingle mill
that has just been completed there. It
was erected by the Campbell River
Lumber company, and contains three
machines, a large kiln and other
equipment all of an up-to-date nature.
The manufactured shingles will be
shipped to American and Eastern
Canadian markets.- The mill will start
on Monday.
Mr. McLeod also noted on his

ARE WATCHING TICXS.
Britis'i   Columbia    Insect    Is   Ur.dsr
Careful Expert Scrutiny.
In reference to the reported statement of .1. W. Cockle of Ka-io MC
to the effect that the wondticks'which
abound in British Columbia carry
germs which cause spinal meningitis
and ben-beri, and that the bite of
these insects is sometimes fatal which
statement has caused considerable
alarm in British Columbia, Dr C
Gordon Hewitt, Dominion entomoloiri
ist, states: "
"While I do not know what statement Mr. Cockle made, I can most
emphatically Rtate that the woodtieka
have not been shown to have any relation to either spinal meningitis or the
tropical disease of beri-beri. The real
facta are as follows: For some time
the division of entomology has been
investigating the distribution and
fatbits of the Rocky Mountain s-otted
fev-r tick. Mr. Cockle has kindly sent,
at my request, specimens ol wondticks
wht-h I have identified as this species. Specimens of the same epeeie*
have also been sent to me from other
districts in British Columbia.
"This tick has been shown to be
the corner of the orennism rr germ
which causes tlie disease known ns
Rocky Mountain spotted fever, prevalent in certain regions of Montana
and Idaho, from 5 to 70 per cent, of
the cases proving fatal, according to
the locality.
"So far as I have been able to discover, no certain case of thi* disease
has lieen reported in Canada, but the
possibility of its introduction or discovery ut any time made it desirable
tnat the distribution and habits of
this germ-bearing tick should ba Investigated, and such an investigation
is  now  being carried on.
"I nm anxious tu have reports from
any meflloal men of cases of diseases
which they suspect of being traceabl*
to tbe lutes of ticks, and h!ho speei-
mens of woodtieks, under which term
several spencs are included."

London, July 31.���A? a result cf the
trouble between the Uaihunc and
Prqtestant workmen in the shipbuilding yards at Belfast, tho chief secretory for Ireland, Mr. A. Birrell, in reply to a question in tho Commons,
said yesterday that troops were being
rushed to that city to protect labor
and preserve order.
This announcement was made as an
answer to Mr. J. Devlin, M. P., who,
in an urgent appeal to the government yesterday said the whole situation at Belfast was'due to the Home
Rule measure, causing violence and
appealing to the worst form of passion and bigotry. He had sent $250
to the relief of the dismissed Nationalists ln Belfast and wanted to know
what measures the government Intended taking for the protection and
freedom of labor ln the Irish city.
The chief secretary replied that two
battalions of troops were already In
Belfast and that a third was being
sent as a precautionary measure ln
case of dispute between the two factions.
The trouble had arisen owing to thc
action of Messrs. Harland & Wolff,
shipbuilders of Belfast, who dismissed many of their men and threaten tc
close down their works entirely owing to the trouble caused by the discussions between the Catholic and
Protestant workmen on the merits of
home rule.
In the Commons Mr. Birrell further
stated that 80 assaults have been
committed at Messrs. Harland &
Wolff's yards during the month some
of which have been so serious as to
endanger life. The great majority of
the Catholics employed by them work
on this account, Mr. Birrell declared.
Three thousand workmen are now
Idle ln the Irish city, aand the Daily
News correspondent at Belfast says
that one large firm has dismissed all
numbering thirty, simply to retaliate
for the dismissing of the Orangemen
by Harland & Wolff.

Victoria,  Ju!y   Cl.���American    flsh-
1 ing hoats are cleaning out the  &reat
j salmon and halibut banks oir the west
i coast of Vancouver Island, and if Uie
I industry is to be preserved for Can-
* adian fishermen a more efficient pa-
I trcl service will have to ba maintain-
j ed.   Capt. Ceo. Heater, of the fishing
schooner   Ysabel   May,   which   came
I into port Sunday night, said the Americans,   fishing  in   the   vicinity   of
Kyuquot and Cape Cook, have apparently no fear of any Intervention   on
the part of the Canadian  fishery  protection boats.
While the Ysabel May was fishing
off the northern shores of this island
she sighted ai great many of the larger American boats fishing about a
mile off shore. For a time the May
was In company with an American
schooner when the smoke of a steamer was seen. The foreign vessel had
her nets out and thinking the approaching ve3sls might be Canadian
fisheries protection boats, she proceeded out to sea. As soon as the vessel, which happened to be a coasting
vessel, passed, the poacher returned
to her nets.
The halibut schooners from Seattle
and Tacoma are getting big catches
off Cape Cook. The steamer William |
Joliffe is supposed to be patrolling
those waters but the fishermen apparently pay little attention to her. Most
of them can develop a higher speed
than the Joliffe and would not have a
hard time in getting away from her.
The Americans are cleaning out the
Canadian banks and are giving the
banks off the Washington coast a
rest.
In the last week the steamer Newington. which is patrolling the coast
from Cape Bcale to the entrance of
the Stalts, brought ln two poachers.
The Americans, however, continue
peaching and seem willing to sacrifice
a beat every once In a while.

Calgary, Alta., July Sl.���News u's
patches from MacLeod, reporting ths
execution F riday of Sam Willlnsky
lor the murder of George Lakottc.;,
slated that Willlnsky vent to hia
death without making any cenfe^io:'.
or admission of his guilt of the crime
of which he was convicted. It transpires that the statement wa3 in error and that Willinsky d.d make a full
confession of hia crime.
Superintendent P. H. C. Primrose of
the Mounted Police at MacLeod, made |
the statement today tnat Willlnsky
sent to him the evening before his execution and voluntarily made a confession of his guilt.
Superintendent   Primrose  informed
the prisoner that   any   statement   he
had to make ahould be entirely voluntary, and Willlnsky then proceeded to
detail the circumstances of the murder.     At the trial  of Willlnsky   the!
evidence was entirely circumstantial, I
yet  the   murderer's   statement   con-'
formed in detail to the theory of the
crime as developed by the police   in
the circumstantial ca3e.
It was the theory of the police and
the crown prosecutor that Willlnsky
was infatuated with the wife of La-
kotocz, and in the hope of getting the
woman for himself he killed the husband. While the murderer related tb
Superintendent Primrose the circumstances of his lying in wait for La-
kotocz and shooting him as he was
going to his work In the mine at
Frank.
Superintendent Primrose wrote out
the confession aud forwarded it to the
commissioner of police.
Some time prior to the date cf execution, Willlnsky, in the hope of delaying his execution, made another
confession in which he denied killing
Lakatocz, but said he was the murderer of Constable Willemott, who
was killed at Frank some years ago,
and for the murder of whom Fritz
Rbert3 is under sentence of death at
MacLeod, and whose case is awaiting
appeal, ln his confession, Willinsky
also acknowledged that his former
statement was untrue and had been
riade solely with a view to procuring
delay in his execution.

TOWN   PLANNING.
The questions raised by the executive body of the Progressive Association anent the opening np by the city
council of another business street,
and of the setting apart of certain
areas for purely residential purposes,
are but branches of the great subject of town planning which should always be beforo the minds cf tliose
who arc taking part in the upbuilding
of new cities.
Therefore, although these particular
branches of the subject were laid on
the table for a month, we tri.Jt that
the interval will be employed in obtaining data and information upon
what ha3 been done In other cities,
both In Canada and in the eld land
along these lines.
One ha.i but to go to Vancouver to
view how it should not be be done;
thc great apartment house at the entrance cf Stanley Park obscuring the
view cf English Bay from the promenade is a striking example of this.
Toronto has recognized this problem
and has taken steps to apportion the
particular area within its bounds
where apartment houses may bo
erected.
That this question is of prime importance may be gathered frcm the
movements in England which have
produced the garden cities, and from
the fiist congress upon town planning
in Canada, which was recently h-M at
a
Winnipeg.
Ii. R. H. the Duke of Connaught,
who will shortly visit Westminster, is
particularly interested in thi3 important subject, and his address to the
people cf Winnipeg may well be reproduced here.   He said:
"In these days, when so many
people are thinking solely of the
-amassing   of wealth, numbers of
theni are careless 33 to where and
Iiow they live. Wo must try to dis-
couraffe tlifs spirit and mnke the
public insist on the surroundings
being  as  beautiful as conditions
will admiL
"lhe garden suburb of today is
tlie manufacturing district of tomorrow; so yon must look to it
that your improvements keep
pace with the growth of the city,
and at times even show an intelligent anticipation oi such growth.
"Furthermore, it is nol sufficient to provide suitable and sanitary buildings. Many thousands
of the working clashes are far
from grateful for being put into
them. This phenomenon has repeatedly erinced itself in other
great cities. Yon have not only to
provide improved conditions of
housing, but you have also to
educate the working classes to
such an extent that they will insist on living in a dec?nt and
sanitary manner.
"If you can do thi;i you Mil re-
-duce the work thrown upou the
hospitals aud will ooatrlfcute to
the eradication cf tuberculosis,
which is so terribly prevalent in
Canada. The public la notoriously
apathetic and In slow to loam
that tuberculosis is a pi. rentable
dis. ase, and tbal oue of the first
steps towards stamping li out is
���the provision of proper domestic
conditions, of   frcali   air   and   of
open spaces."
Town planning Is a vast and intensely interesting subject and tho
full report of thc proceedings at Winnipeg should be worthy of attention
when published.

Importance to the question of what
part Canada is going to play in standing by the old flag, and ln creating
that auxiliary protection to the sea

evolved by mere flag-waving platitudes when the hour of danger
strikes.
While it seems inconceivable that
Germany can really meditate an attack upon Great Britain which can in
the end result only in disaster to her-
Bclf, ar.d which, even in the remote
contingency of her success, would

Considerable comment of late in
Ottawa has centered around the demolition of the Sappers' bridge, and
about the splendid solidity with wliich

the bridge which has served Ottawa | an Inquiry into ill

and ihe. arcli became too thin to support  weight,
All this Is true of the splendid man

Inquest on Indian Woman���Died fron'
Natural Causes.
Believing that Mrs. William Anderson, an Indian woman who was fount,
dead in the woods at South Westmin
ster on Saturday night, was the vie
tim of foul play, the Indians frem thl
three  reservations  near  Westmlnstei
who were interested in the case,    in
duced   Dr.   H.  II.  Mr-Ewen  to call ai.
inquest for the purpose of Instituting
circumstances.
This ii.quest was held yesterda;
morning at Murchle's undertaking
rooms, the jury returning a verdict
of "death from natural causes."
The evidence of Ur. 0. T, V.'llsoi
who had in ide n post mort en
examination of the body of Mrs. An
derson, was very conclusive, Hi
stated that without doubt death hfffe
BOme naturally and was caused either
by very old age or by chronic alcohol
isi".
Dr. McEwen, tlie coroner, In nd
dressing tlie jury, stated  that tl;
n In
In

ionv
dians   were  anxious   to  liave  bi
reputation   of doing  thelqulry Into the affair because th<
his kind tliat the world j of   the   dead   woman   showed   a
j superficial cut on tlie forehead, v hieh
of the worldj might  have. b"en caused  by a blow
that
had
parts
that are not dotted with works erect-land  it was    their    supposition
ed by and tor the British government, I Charles Martin, a fisherman, win
and almost without exception those
works possess the enduring qualities
of the pyramids, Some few years ago
the British government ordered some
hundn tl-fool Btlcks of timber���to be
found only in Oregon���for a dock In
course of erection in Hong Kong. The
timbers each cost a small fortune, and
ain    American   engineers    rather
lived   with   the  deceased  at  different
times, might have ill-treated her.
On the stand Marlin said that ;on
Saturday afternoon he was comlng'up
the river in his fishing boat when
Mrs. Anderson hailed him from the
bank at a point about two miles from
the Fraser bridge. He landed and
the   woman   asked  for   food,   stating
poked    fun   Bt   "antiquated"   British I that she had had nothing to   cat   for
methods, explaining that they would
have taken two fiftv-foot sticks of
timher, and havp spliced them, this
costing much less and causing much
less trouble.
It so happened that shortly before
the dock was finished, it was subject
to a tremendous hurricane strain,
which effectually demonstrated that
the British method, although more
costly, was far more enduring. Some
of the most eminent   American   engi-
several davs. He secured some supplies and brewed some coffee. Mrs.
Anderson appeared sick and lay down
upon some blankets wliich he brought
from the boat.
Martin then went for help to thf
nearest Indian house, but when he
returned with Sumas Joe and Charlie
Frank, two Indian fishermen, Mrs.
Anderson was dead.
The evidence of Dr. Wilson cleared
up  thc point ahout the  cut on    the
nee-s then acknowledged that had the ] forehead of the deceased, the doctor
dock   been   constructed   under   their' stating that it was Inflicted at least
nlan. it. would not have withstood the
test it did.
The Hritish engineers of the beginning of the nineteenth century built
for all time, just as do their successors of today. The constructions of today,  when taken  apart   by  the   pro-
b week before death. In his opinion
the condition of the. heart was mainly
responsible for death.
Mr.  William  Anderson, husband of
the dead woman, Is now undergoing
treatment at the Royal Columbian
hospital for rheumatism.

HORN STILL LEADS
AT Y. IM. C. A' MELT
Four Mere Events Were Decided Last
Night��� Hoult's Chances on
Friday.
Tha second night of the Y. M. C. A.
track meet was held last evening at
Queens park. J. Horn, who is known
as the star twirler of the Moose aggregation, leads the fleld ln number
art i'Auia, having gained a total of
494.
However, the two running events
of i-riday evening's card should be to
the advantage of Jack Hoult, and unless Horn can do anything in the shot
put and pole vault, his chances of
gaining the highest number of points
wlll be in danger.
Last night's events and winners are
as follows:
Running high jump���1, J. Hoult; 2,
Horn; 3, Goodwin and Trapp.
220 yard dash���1, L, Sangster; 2,
Hoult; 3, Trapp and McDonald.

Intermediate Lacrosse Tonight.
The East Uurnaby and the Regina
Intermediate teams will battle on the
park grounds this evening. This game
is sure to be,an interesting one due
to the fact that a win for East Burnaby would place them on a tie with
the Reginas for third place. The
championship was decided last week
by Sapperton defeating the West
Ends, but the fur is sure to fly tonight
when the struggle to keep out of the
cellar position begins.
PACIFIC NORTHWEST
TENNIS CHAMPIONSHIP
Victoria. July 31.���It. P. Schwengers
won the Pacific northwest international singles tennis championship today,
defeating Captain Fou Ikes, the run-
r.er-up, at the tournament here today.
The score was 6-4, 6-2, 6-0.
In the men's doubles championship
Evans and Jukes, the winners of the
Vanoouver series, were successful
again, winning from Tyler and Brain,
of Spokane, 6-8, 9-7. 6-4, 4-0. 6-3.
Won't Hurt the Game.
They take sport very seriously on
the Pacific slope. Out there lacrosse
conditions are nearly tbe same as
they w��re In the East fifteen years
ago. The partizan feeling is Intense.
and this is notably the reason for the
big gates and the flourishing condition of the game.   There is no getting
away from the fact that the greater
the interest the more chance there ls
of occasional squabbles such as Con
Jones and the New Westminster management are now having. Some years
back the same thing occurred In Eastern ranks. Can the B. C. people
patch up some kind of a truce the recent flght wlll only add additional interest to th? lacrosse fans of Vancouver and New Westminster, and will
not hurt the game. Too bad we can't
have some of this keen rivalry down
this way.���Ottawa Journal.
Lacrosse In Belgium.
Lacrosse ls making headway ln Bel-
glum, Into which country It has just
been introduced. In this country we
may claim to know all about lacrosse,
but the Belgians have unloosened a
few new ones. Here is a translation
of the dodger sent out to advertise
the first game:
Lacrosse is a game practised by the
Indian people of North America. Introduced into England about flfty
years ago, it was Boon abandoned on
account of its brutality and the numerous fatal accidents that lt occasioned; but the public had become
enamored of the game and the expert
modified the rules ln order to render
It less barbarous and the game fook
a new life.
Ostend will have the honor of the
first exhibition of lacrosse in Bel-
glum. The game has much resemblance in its essential rules with football, polo and hockey; lt differs from
them not only In Its rapidity, but in
the fact that the ball oan be seized as
well on the ground as In the air by
means of a bent cane with a net at its
extremity.
The game Is played between two
teams of seven players, each having a
distinct part for attack and defence
as at football, a goal at the two extremities of the ground is kept for
each camp by a goal-keeper, whose
duty consists ln preventing the ball
of the opposite team from entering.
As previously stated, the rapidity
and intensity of the game render it a \
much more attractive spectacle, although subiect to severe rules by
reason of the touch of savagery and
danger is in it.

(4) Unseasonable or unsettled

(5) The influence of the clamor
for punishing play.
As a result the majority have to
make a selection of the matches they
will patronise, and naturally the "big
dishes" are in most favor. The manner in which "punishing"batting" has
been lauded causes the rank and file
to lose sight of all the finer points of
the game, of the fact that the conditions of the pitch or game warrant a
certain course of action, of the excellence of the bowling, the closeness of
the fielding exercising a powerful Influence on the batting."

Cricket Losing Favor.
The popularity of cricket is a perennial subject in Britain, and the London Sportsman's cricket authority.
Wanderer, has this to say as his contribution to the discussion:
"Is the interest in cricket declining? Is cricket slow? That is the
sum and substance of the discussion
which has brought with it any amount
of suggestions from reformers, some
projects worthy of consideration, perhaps, but thp treat majority rt'splay-
ing little forethought, or but a superficial knowledge of the subject.
To come to the root of the matter
at onoe the chief causes for decreased
attendances are, in my humble opinion, as follows:
(1) Too much first-class cricket.
(2) Want of leisure a3 compared
with 20 vears ago.
(3) Greater calls on the pocket.

CITY OF NEW WESTMINSTER B.C
By EUGENE WHITING
(
The Spanish-American war was ended, and the troops hud been removed
from Santiago on transports. A few
Invalids remained wbo were too til to
travel, under the care of Surgeon Edward Fergeson, who stayed betilnd for
the purpose ot curing for tbem aad
settling up tbe affairs of tbe medical
department ot tbe army. A gunboat
tinder command of Knslgn White of
tbe nary had been ordered to remain
for tbe purpose or bringing away tbose
wbo needed transportation wben everything had been cleaned op. wben those
who were to die bod died and those
who were to get well were able to be
carried aboard ship.
Now. tbe Santiago campaign waa
something to be neartily sick et and
after lt was over to be left tn ttoe cursed place to clean up was worse yet
Knsign White wns a bad selection for
the purpose, tor hts fiancee wus waiting

for hlm to come nome to murry her,
and Ue ��as in a terrible hurry to accommodate tier, lie bad taken care
of everything there was to do. Hint
Dothtng remained except to timm
Dome tliose left In hospuul. Calling ou
Burgeon Peritenon, ue asked him iti*
condition ot t nines in his department.
"There ure two men who mo t live
twenty tour hours As soon as they
are deiid we can uct out ot tins benst
ly country and co nome."
"Are you -mre they're boih going to
dleV" Halted White.
"They've ooth got the fever, nnd 1
can't see any chance tot either of
thera. There s Lieutenant Berkeley ot
the ���th New Jersey us good us dead
The other one is Sergeant Moore ot
the -lh UaiMtacbUsetta. He's not quite
so had us HerUeiey. but there's uo show
tot Dim."
"1 say. old man." said White thought-
fully, "were noth A11X1008 to go home
Now. you wouldn't mind havlnc Hunt's
ready to bury these fellows, would
you. just ns soon as they nre dead'.'"
KergPHon shrngeed hts shoulders and
made no reply, hut alienee gives con
sent, and White knew that when the
Invalid*' souls had left thplr bodies
there would he no necessity tor wast-
log time as io tlte Interment
The cnntiont had steam up, ready for
departure, and Hurseon Kergeson whs
Posy over some papers, while nis stnK
er wns packing ins belonging*. A hos
pttal steward mine Into nis tent und
said:
"Doctor, one of those r*_**p* Is dend.
nnd the other has dlMppenred "
The xtirgenti uttered an exclamation
of Impatience He had expected to iret
oil within an hour, nml here was u coin
plication Ihat might cause un eud ot
delay,
"How the dickens can n man til thp
pnlnt   of   death   disappear?"   be   asked
Impatiently.
"Oon'l know"
"Von gn hunt for him nnd lot me
know which man has died I suppose
It Is Berkeley. White Is cnizv to he
off. uud It I'm not ou band ut the miu
uie I'm afraid he'll go without me"
Hnlf an honr later the steward came
hack nnd reported thnt thp missing
mtui had not heen found and th�� dead
man was Berkeley, Kergeson wns so
sure (hat Merkelev would not live thnt
he did uot question the man in ihe
matter, especially as UP wn�� about
stepplne Into an ambulance to take him
to ihe ��hore. where a boat was WHltlns
fot him to put him on board the ship
Up told the steward to see that the
lieutenant had a decent burial nnd
made it mental nole to put the deceased's name down on the dpnd list ns
soon us he hoarded the gnnhoat
All these pemons were younc. Kergeson was an nssistnnt surgeou. hi/Id-
inu only the grade of first llcntennnt.
White was but nu ensign, grndunted a
tew days herore the breaking out of
the war at the Naval academy. Berkeley, who wns reported dead, wns bul
twenty-three years old and the hospital steward ttot much his senior. To
thp vouth ot the persons concerned is
due the vrunt of cure ln the matter that
hne bpen mentioned. Youncters ar��
Dot to be trusted as older officers, wno
wonld not have been llkejy to hurry
nway from tbe duties committed lo
their care, leaving one sick mnn roam-
luu no one knew where and nnothet to
be buried wltboui making sure as to
who he WHS.
Krom the time that Surgeon Kergeson entered the uame ot l.ietitvnant
Berkeley ou bis death roll he thought
00 more of him. He worried about
Sergeant Moore, whose disappearance
the hospital steward had reported,
fearing that, sluce the man bad beeu
In his charge, something might turn
up to bring out his failure to remain
tb Cuba and discover what hud become ot him. But as for Berkeley, he
was safe underground and could not
ln anyway stir up tbe army regulations against tbe doctor.
Five years after tbe Spanish-American war a party of young persons was
making merry together at Kort. Monroe. One of the young ladles, Mlss
Julia Hulet, was receiving some attention from a young offlcer. Captain
John Foster, who had been promoted
from the ranks, or. rather, Cnptaln
Foster, wns offering bis Attentions,
wbicb Mlss Hulet waa chary ot accepting.
Since It wan near the bour for dreiw
parade, one of the party proposed that
tbey go into tbe fort and see the ceremony. As they moved along a gentleman Joined Mlss Hulet. wbo seemed
very mucb phased to meet him She
Introduced nlm to ber friends as Mr.
Berkeley.
Ou bearing tbe name Captain Foster
looked tixedly upon Berkeley aa
though trying to recall some memory
concerning him From the* moment
of the Hitter's arrival be devoted him
self to Miss Hulet. wbo received nls
attentions graciously, evidently to tbe
annoyance of Captain Foster. The
Spanish American war was mentioned,
arid Iterkeley spoke ot having participated in the uftalr.
"Beg your pardon, Mr. Berkeley,"
Foster spoke up: "wltb wbat corps did
you serve In Cuba'/"
���The -th New Jersey Infantry"
"Tbere was a Lieutenant Berkeley
of tbat regiment, but be died ln Cuba "
"1 wns the ouly Lleutenaut Berkeley
In tbe regiment." replied the other,
"and I did not die In Cuba." The
words were spoken sharply since Foster hnd Implied tbat Berkeley wus
passing under false colors.
"I'm sorry to differ from yon as to
Lieutenant Berkeley's death." said Fos- '���
ter  Insultingly.    "I   know  for h   fnct
that  Lieutenant  Berkeley of tbe ���th
New Jersey died In Cuba.   Thp reason
1 know  It Is that  1 came  home with
the last departures from Santiago, and
Surgeon   Kergeson.  who was  witb us. >
spoke of  Berkeley's death,  regretting '
that be was unable to remain in Cuba
to attend to the ollicpr's burial."
"1 wlll cnll upon you tomorrow." tp
piled   the   man    wbo   claimed   to   be
Berkeley, "and  will convince yon that .
Mr.   Berkeley  Is alive and very much
In evidence."
Tbis ended nny further reference to j
tlie matter at tbe time, lint there wns j
not a person in the party who did not
think   about   It   Intently.     Miss   Unlet
was thp one principally affected bv It.
and  during  the  time the  party   were
witnessing the parade she showed by
hpr  manner thnt she took sldps witli
Mr   Berkeley, being especlnllv gracious j
to   him   and   cool   to  Captain   Foster
After the parade was finished nnd the
party were walking toward the hotpi��
Berkeley stopped to gpeak to au Oflicer
WbOOl he hud met in Oflfia.
"Who is tbls Captain Koster?" asked i
Berkeley.
"lle  was a   hospital steward during I
the  wtir.    After  it   was over, through
Influence at   Washington,  ne  received I
an   appointment   as   lieutenant   in   the !
regular  army.     He   has  recently   been
promoted tn he captain "
That was enough for Berkelpy The
same evening when a party were cath
ered In thp principal hotpl. Koster nnd
Berkeley being present. Berkeley sam:
"Captain Foster, do von remember
going Into a ward In a hospital in San
tlflgn where two men were supnneed to
he suffering with fever?"
Koster started, but made no rpplv.
"1 had been In that wind nt tne pulni
of deuth, but In the grny of the tin.in
lng the fever left me. and l craved
water. I got up lo go for It. Where
I ueiit I dou't know, bin a fe* days
later I found myself lu a Cui.an nut.
DOf knowing how I gut there I leuru
ed long afterward thai a hospital mew
urd hud reported me deud and iviat the
Other man. a sergeaut in a col beside
me. had heen burled under m) mime.
"After my return to the norm u ne-
came necessary to prove my Identity,
wliich i did to the ���atisfac'tluu ot a
court. But I believe that to the presenl day I am on ihe rolls ot Uie dead
ol the army at Santiago."
While Mr Berkeley was making this
statement Ml��s Unlet kept her eyes
lixed mi Captain Koster. When Heike- |
.ej finished Koster stammered some
thing about an "unlikely story," then
turned aud begun to talk incoherently
villi uue of the young ladles of the
parly. Mlss Hulet, wltb a look of
contempt at him, walked away wltb
Berkeley.
Tbus ended nn episode due to the
hurry of two officers to get away from
a benighted land, one of whom wus
eager tn meet his fiancee And the other
to avoid being left behind. Tbe third
man-lhe hospital steward-was doubtless too lazy to make certain as to the
Identity of a dead man.
Nevertheless the saying "murder wlll
out" Is true In less Important mutters.
The story that has been given bpre
was repeated In the army, and Foster
k'ha finally called to account for a delinquency of several years before. Surgeon Kergeson wus Involved, nnd both
officers after au uiv����tlgut,ou were
reprimanded. '

"DR. JIM" STEPS OUT
THE   C^LEBIATED   RAIDER   DECIDES TO QUIT POLITICS.
Leader of the Historic Foray Into ths
Tran vaal, Who Has Been Leading
the Union Party In the South African Parliament Has Tried Hard
to Give the New Country a Breathing Spell.
The resignation of Sir Stair .lame-
son, better known as Dr. Jim of the
Jameson Raid, from the leadership of
the Union Party in South Africa, is
responsible for a great many character sketches in the English papers.
The Daily Mail says in part:
J Of course his health is at the back
iof his decision. But something else
���(has weighed with him too. He tried to
save South Africa from party politics.
He has never been a politician. He
ia a statesman. He saw, with his
statesmanlike grasp of her difficulties, tliat South Africa after Union
needed a period of quiet growth, undisturbed by the squabbles of partisans. He tried to give her this quiet
time.
He offered tn serve in a coalition

GERMANY'S SECRET
PA1TLE SQUADRON
Constitutes Cravest Peril Britain Has
Ever Faced���Nine Cxlra
Bhl-w.
whicli    Is
of   twelve
London, July III.--The London
Dally Kxpre.is prints tho lollowing report that Germany U biuldln:; a secret s luadron In the race for soa supremacy with Great Britain:
"It Is reported in army c roles that
iVr some months pu-u the Ann ol
Krupp has bv'cn engaged In the manufacture of guns and munition for a
new squadrci) of niue battleships foi
ftermany. It Ij understood that, during tho last three weeka, the angle
'rons and plates for the ships have
been reclved from England.
The Importance of this information
conflsts In thn fact that ln the event:
of Germany forcing tho pace   either
for herself or for the other members |
of the Triple Alliance, a fresh battb-|
ship   squadron   of   nlno   battleships
lould be ready v.ithin a year, or, at:
the moat eighteen monthB.   It ls uu-:
derstooti that the action which    ha^ <
been taken is a reply to Mr. Winston
Churchill's Bpecch on his accession to
office.
"An addition of nine battleships toj
the German fleet ln 1914 would placet
this country in the gravest peril with |
which it has ever been faced. i
"Mr. Churchill In the House of Commons a few months ago, laid It down
that the absolute minimum of safety
was the maintenance of a 60 per cent
margin of superiority In capital shlpa
over Germany, ln the House ct Commons, ten davs ago. he said that at
tho end of 1014 we would have a minimum of thirty-three and a maximum
of forty-one battleships fully manned
and In full commission against twenty-nine of Germnny.
"Mr. Churohlll added that thirty-
three to twenty-nine does not perhaps
sound a very satisfactory proportion.
It ls certainly not an excosBlvo proportion, bnt lt Is Impossible to settle
this question merely on numbers. If
nine new shins were added to the
German fleet the comparison for 1914'
would stand as follows:
"Germany, 38;  Great Britain mini-'
muni, 33;  maximum, 41,     These fig-
urea tell their own Btory." !

greatest of their emperors who had
made the nations realize that Japan
