SENTENCE OF DEATH
PRONOUNCED ON SMITH
Condemned to be Hanged on January 31 Next-Receives
Sentence Calmly-Jury, Deliberating Over Three Hours
Returns Three Times for Information���Defence Introduces
no Testimony-Crowded Court Awaits Verdict.
"The sentence of this court therefore Ib, that you shall be taken from
hence to the place from which yo t
came, there to be kept In solitary confinement until the 31st day of January
next, when you shall be taken from
thence to the place of execution and
hanged by the. neck until dead, an J
may God have mercy on your soul."
With the above formal statement
Mr. Justice Murphy last night Benten
ced Convict Joseph Smith to the extreme penalty for the murder on Oct.
6 last of Guard Joynson, of the B. C.
Penitentiary during un attempted e��
cape by Smith and Convict Wilson
who has Bince died aa a result of a
wound received then.'
After deliberating for three hours
and fifteen minutes upon the evidence,
the jury returned at. 8.25 o'clock last
night with a verdict of guilty as charg
ed. They had beeu back Into court
three times, twice for information and
once to have an additional point of
law explained. Each of the jurors wa^
solemn and all apparently appreciated
to tlie full the responsibility of their
office and the distasteful task which
they had completed.
The Condemned Man.
Betraying only an occasional long
drawn breath that he was laboring un
der any especial strain, Smith took
his sentence cooly and merely nodded
his head at the conclusion. He was
immediately taken in charge by the
provincial police and turned over to
the penitentiary authorities.
Mr. W. F. Hansford, counsel for
Smith, stated thut un appeal ls likely
to be taken, but before making any
definite statement in tills regard he
would have to make an examination
of the record and confer with. his
client. The court of appeals is now
In session in Vancouver and wlll sit
again Ir. January. Mr. Hansford came
In for some little congratulation upon
his conduct cf the defence, and before
pronouncing sentence tlie court remarked that the prisoner had had very
able counsel.
When the verdict was brought ln,
nearly very seat In the court room,
both In and outside the railing, was
taken. Many cf the spectators had
remained in tlieir seats from the time
the jury went out, even foregoing their
dinner rather than chance missing the
final scenes In the trial which they
had followed for the last three days.
Question of Custody.
An interesting point in connection
with the case was the question of who
should retain custody of the prisoner
" In the event of his conviction and
sentence to death. tJnder ord'nary
circumstances, the acusedis In charge
of the provincial police until such time
as sentence Is pronounced' when lie ls
given In charge of the sheriff and kept
in close confinement in the provincial
Jail. In tbis case, however. Smith being a Dominion prisoner, he will be
returned to the penitentiary at Sapperton, and the execution wlll probably take plaoe there.
This will be the first execution ln
the penitentiary In this city. There
ls a precedent however in the Alberta
penitentiary at Edmonton. There a
convict killed the deputy warden
about two years ago. Upon conviction he was hanged ln the penitentiary
building under the jurisdiction of the
sheriff. The inmates of the prison
were paraded and witnessed the execution, as an object lesson. Whether
this last feature will be carried out
here is not known. Sheriff Armstrong
stating last right it vvill depend entirely upon his Instructions frcm the Department of Justice In "Ottawa. It Is
not considered probable that the department wiil order this In view of the
exceptionally good behavior of the prisoners here during the recent outbreak
Offered No Testimony. ���
somewhat to the surprise of the various spectators at tbe trial, Mr. Hansford announcod, after a ten minute
recess yesterday afternoon, that the
defense would introduce no testimony.
He proceeded Immediately with his
closing address. It was thovght that
he would put Smith on the stand, and
possibly introduce other testimony. It
is understood that it was Smith's own
request that he be not put on the
stand.
The first witness of the day was
Guard Elson, who had .been questioned on direct oxamluation on Thursday.
Mr. Haneford took Borne little time in
bis cross examination, as Elson was
an important witness and the man
whom the dofence contended had fired
the shot which resulted in Joynson's
death. Asldo from tangllns him up
somewhat In his testimony and securing statements not exactly In actsord
with those made at the preliminary
bearing, no Important admissions were
elicited. .'������"': _ ,���,���.
A convict who has since completed
his sentence and been released, but
who was an eye witness to the shoot
ing of Joynson, was put on the stand
and toid a graphic story of the event
He said Joyivwh *as Oomlhg toward
Smith when the latter yelled to him
/ to either throw up. tla faand3 or drop
hls gun. Eor reply Joynson fired at
the couvlot
guard who ran back fifteen or twenty
feet and fell to the ground.
Mr. Hansford Sums Up.
In summing up to the jury Mr.
Hansford reviewed the testimony of
the various witnesses, and made the
most of the flaws and inconsistencies
apparent In some of the statements.
He made light of the Crown's contention that a conspiracy to escape existed between Smith and Wilson, and
stated that the affair started through
Craig using harsh language to Smith
who thereupon Btruck him. The fact
that no violence was attempted until
the men were attacked by Joynson
was also made much of, Mr. Hansford
claiming that the men would have
made their escape by putting away
each guard they met.
He Impressed upon the Jury the necessity for being convinced ln their
own mind, beyond any reasonable
doubt, that the bullet which resulted
in Joynson's death came from Smith
rather than from Elson, and closed
with the statement that the old Bible
precept of "life fcr a life" had been
fulfilled in this case hy the death ot
Wilson. Justice Murphy took him to
task for this statement later, saying
thit Wilson's death had no connection
with this case and should not be taker,
into consideration by the jury.
Crown Prosecutor Grant ln a short
spetech summed up the evidence and
stated that under that evidence the
only man who could have fired the
fatal Bhot was Smith. He said to the
jury that they had nothing to do with
the consequences which might arise
from a verdict of guilty. He made
much of the testimony of the convict
who was the last witness and asked
that a verdict ol guilty be rendered.
Address to Jury.
Mr. Justic Murphy then explained
that under the indictment three verdicts only were open to the jury:
Murder, manslaughter and acquittal
He said it was the duty of the jurymen
to judge the case and arrive at a ver
diet solely upon the evidence nnd no<
to allow any personal foellna to enter
Into the matter. Ve also warned anv
one cf them who might be opposed
to capital punishment that should thev
allow this fact to enter into the ver
diet they would be' violating tbeir

intimation   that a survey had been
made for a tram line from Westminster to Port Mann was contained in
the report of the combined transportation committee   of   the   board   of
trade,   city   council  and   Progressive
association preseuted at the meeting
of the board of trade last night.   It
was stated that the matter of Port
Mann car communication   had   been
taken up with Mr. G. R. G. Conway at
a meeting held recently principally to
discuss the proposed North road line.
Mr. Couway said that Colonel Davidson, of tbe C. N. R., had spoken to the
B. C. E. R. officials and that the line
had already been surveyed.    Owing,
however, to the   railway   traffic   on
Westminster bridge having developed
to such a volume the extra servlco
for a Port Mann line would cause a
further congestion, and thus its construction there waB inadvisable.    He
added that the question of placing   a
tram line along the traffic level was
one that had  received consideration
by the company, but the problem of
getting a desirable   grade   from   tha
bridge to the proposed grade of   tho
railway was one that was yet to b".
solved.
The report recommended    that    ll
active influence could be brought    tc
bear on the B. C. Electric by the Cana
dian  Northern  railway  the  work  on
the line might be proceeded with   at
an early date.

REASON SAMSON
INQUIRY BEGAN
Mr. J.D. Taylor, M.P. Details
History of Charges and
Investigations.
Answers ' Superintendent     Bayfield 't,
Statement Regarding Falsification
of Records.
The why nnd wherefore of the investigation ln connection with the
suagboat Samson was disclosed before
Commissioner Bole at a resumption of
the Inquiry yesterday morning when
Mr. J. D. Taylor, M.P., explained his
position in reference to the allegeu
looting of the stores on the government boat, which, together with other
matters, convinced him that everything was not Just right.
Mr. Taylor stated that Mate Boyd
flrst called upon him in June of this
year in connection witb the supplies
on the boat.   Boyd at that time was
a total stranger to Mr. Taylor, but,
as his credentials were of the best, he
felt compelled to consider the matter.
Mr. Taylor warned Boyd of the seriousness of his allegations, and   Boyd
placed his charges in writing witn the
result that the member   wrote   to Ottawa asking for a quiet investigation
so that very little would result if such
charges were not founded upon facta.
Came to Nought.
Mr. H. A. Wilson,   of   the   public
works department ln this city, was
appointed by the Ottawa authorities.
Mr. Wilson asked Mr. Taylor for   the
name of the Informant, Mr. Taylor giving him the paper which contained an
account of certain stores being missing. The Investigation came to nought,
stated Mr. Taylor.    He thought that
the work was not   covered   properly
nor thoroughly

Mayor Lee announced yesterday
tbat it was his intention to hold a
thorough investigation into the
charges made by the Local Council ot
Women last Monday evening against
the city health officer for alleged carelessness in the performance of his
duties.
It Beems that Mr. Thomas Tubman,
cf Seventh avenue and Fourth Btreet,
became affected by typhoid and waj
removed to the hospital three weeks
ago. Immediately following Mrs. Tub
man and one of four children ot tbe
family were also afflicted with the dia
ease. Following this the house was
f jmigatcd by the health Inspector, and
the gist of the charges Is that while
doing so the three remaining children
In the home were removed tb a cold
outhouse and kept there for several
hours.
Subsequently they also became affected with, typhoid and were removed
to the hoBpltal. The doctor who has
In charge the cases has expressed the
opinion that the alleged exposure in
the outbuilding would not affect the
condition of the children as the*y bad
previously been lnnoculated with typhoid germs. It was maintained, how-
even that the exposure aggravated
the cases and a resolution was passed
at the meeting censuring the health
Inspector. The secretary was also Instructed to request the council to hold
an Investigation Into the affair.
"I cannot believe that any city official could be guilty of an Inhuman
ict," stated the mayor yesterday, "but.
if any one is he ought to be dealt with
severely by the council. I can hardly
believe the case as stated and think
there must fee some mistake in thr

was out on the coast upon government business, was requested to investigate for himself. Mr. Young went
over the ground hurriedly and again
the charges were whitewashed, but,
owing to the short time he was in the
city, he felt thst there was more to
the charges than he had found and
he recommended to Ottawa that a
commission be appointed to sift thoroughly Into the matter. Hon. W. Norman Bole, K.C, was then appointed
as commissioner and hence the present proceedings.
Omitted Car Line.
Mr. Tajibr explained the remark
made by Superintendent Bayfield
when cn tbe stand early in the enquiry that this was not the flrst time
that Mr. Taylor had accused him
(Bavflcld) of falsifying the recordB.
The first time, stated Mr. Taylor,
was when he made charges against
Mr. Bayfield to thc Ottawa authorities
in connection with tbe removal of the
dredging offices from New Westminster to Vancouver. Mr. Bayfield, ln
supporting his move to change the
offices to Vancouver, made out a map
covering the fleld of tbe government
boats and omitted to outline the Lulu
Island branch of tbe B. C. E. R. which
afford^ easy access to the lower
roaches uf the Fraser. These charges
were later backed up by the various
public bodies of tbe city. .
System of Checking.
Mr. McDonald, the accountant ln the
department of public works office, was
the next witness and explained the
system bf checking goods received by
the boats,- wbich had been the cause
of unfavorable comment from the commissioner earlier in the sittings.
Before Mr. Bayfield arrived on the
job Mr. McDonald had charge of th<?
accounting work, but since tben Mr.
Bayfield had Installed a complete
office staff of his own in Vaneouver
and the office work was looked over
at Vaucouver and also in this city.
The inquiry came to a close in the
afternoon after Mr. C. C. Worsfold,
resident engineer, had testified that he
knew nothing whatever against Captain Young. The witness also corroborated the evidence of Can'sln Young
that ramming snags by the Samson
was an ordinary affair.

construction.
The stock sheds will be 500 feet by
96 feet proper, but lean-to structures

idea of tbe magnitude and substantial
character of the structure may be

been revived that the British positions of under-secretaryships, including some of the larger departments,
will likely be adopted. Sir George
Murray, who is at present investigating the civil service with a view to reorganization believes that the application of the English plan would be an
improvement and will recommend lt
when his report is presented.
It is stated that one reason that the
position Qf solicitor general has not
been filled is tliat the government is
awaiting Sir George Murray's report.
If he fills the under-secretary's plan
the position of solicitor-general will be
abolished and an under-secretary for

to which undersecretaries are most
likely to be appointed are justice, railways and canals, public works and marine and fisheries.

Montreal,

"I have been suffering from Kidney
Trouble for over five long years. I
hid also Rheumatism in all my bones
and muscles, could not sleep nights and
on some occasions could hardly walk.
I had been treated by some of our best
Physicians bnt without relief and I lost
over fifteen pounds. One day I met
one of our leading hotelkeepers, who
had been cured by your famous GIN
PILLS, and he advised me to try them.
So I bought two boxes at my druggist's
and before I had used one box 1 felt a
big change. Before I finished the
second one I was completely cured.
I can assure you I can hardly believe
it for if I bad only known what I know
now I would uot have spent over One
Hundred Dollars for nothing when two
boxes of GIN TILLS cured me."

OVERSEA DOMINIONS
SHOULD HAVE VOICE
Lord Lansdowne Says They Should Al
so Help Provide for Her Defense.
London, Nov. 15.���At a mass meet-
| ing of the Unionists at Albert Hall to-
��� night Lord Lansdowne emphasized ths
' fact that the Unionist party was most
! anxious that the   Oversea Dominions
I should be given a voice In the councils
! of the nation aud that they should co-
I operate in providing for her defense.
I They were convinced that" the soundest foundation for a closer union was
to be found ln the. establishment  of
closer trade relations between the different parts of the Empire.   That was
why they gave tariff reform the foremost place in their policy.
His Lordship said: "We must bo
free to meet the Dominions half way
in regard to the reciprocal trading;
what we shall give them depends to a
great extent upon what they ask. Each
side will no doubt think most of its
own people, but both sides will. 1 hope,
think most of the Empire. If, when
the time comes the Great Dominions
ask us to grant them, in return for
substantial advances which they will
be prepared to give us, if they ask us
to give them a moderate duty upon
foreign wheat; sufficient to bring into
our markets the great and unlimited
granaries of all Canada and Australia,
we shall not be deterred from examining their proposals by a measure
that will involve the taxation of our
food."    (Cheers).

The unusually heavy receipts of cabbage and potatoes was the outstanding feature of the local market yesterday morning. Cabbage: arrived In
tons to an almost Indifferent markel
and hundreds of sacks were left on th1?
floor without a buyer. Spuds were in
a somewhat similar position. The Inquiry was about the average but not
of sufficient strength to cope with the
large stocks. Despite the drug In the
market, however, the price remained
unchanged for both.
The egg supply was again hardly
enual to the buying, and though no
change in the quotations was recorded the price showed a tendency to
strengthen, lt la not expected that
eggs will go much higher than at present.
The meat stocks, especially dressed
hogs, were exceptionally large, but the
buying was consistent and dealers
found business of a very satisfactory
nature. ���
The fruit market took a turn for th<*
better and an excellent trading was
done In all the varieties on the floor.
Last weeks quotations, for apples,
crab apples and pears prevailed in ni:
the dealings.
The poultry stocks were well up to
the average. The chickens were all
sold while other fowls met a ready inquiry all day.
Altogether the    market as   far a3
stocks were    concerned, was    an unusually large one and purchasers had
everything in their favor.

HOPE IN DOMESTIC SCIENCE.
British Noblewoman Says Men Should

the Lower Classes.
"If I were a man, I would marry
only a woman who had been taught
domestic science. This mean* in all
its branches, including coking, making beds, gweepifig, marketing, etc.
Woe betide him if he doesn't, especially if he is an ojd-fashioned .type of
man. And perhaps I ought to add.
woe betide the woman. The men and
women of bygone days understood the
importance of tl.tae words. Women in
all classes, from the richest to the
poorest, could weave, spin and embroider and cook. Their potions and
household remedies gave them and
their children health and beauty,
which women acquire with difficulty
these days. They did not bother their
heads about Latin and Greek, and
never felt ignorant because they were
unschooled in the higher learning so
much appreciated by women to-day."
These are the words of the Duchess
of Sutherland, one of the great leaders
of English society, spoken recently before a elass in domestic science. "It
would be a good thing," she concluded, "if some of the subjects at present taught in schools made way f'��r
loncer hours at cooking, hygiene,
laundry and needlework. Practically
developed, doraastic science, taken seriously, might be a valuable cure for
the restlessness of the age."

AEROPLANES PROVE
VALUABLE W WAR
Bulgarians   Use   Air   Machines   With
Great Success for Reconnaissance
Work.
London, Nov. 15.���The great valuo
ct aeroplanes .in war has been proved
by the Bulgarian army, not only ln re-
ecnnaissan$e Work, but for fire control.
That the murderous accuracy of the
Bulgarian: artillery was due tn a
measure to the activity of the airmen
is demonstrated ln letters received
from the front.
Any attempt by war correspondents
to telegraph news of the employment
of flying machines by the Bulgarians
during the operations has met severe
censorship, but stories are beginning
to filter through showing that remarkably more effective work has beeu
done by the aeroplanes.
Percival Phillips, special correspondent of the London Express, sends a
picturesque description of tbe flight of
a biplane over the Bulgarian army and
the beleaguered city of Adrlanople.
He writes:
"Tbe flrst ong reconnaissance took
place on the Tuesday following the occupation of Mustapha Pasha. A military biplane winged Its way confidently toward the rising aun, making a
wide detour .above the troops, who
were full of enthusiasm regarding
this new and wonderful sight Subsequently flights were made under excellent conditions, there being no
wind.
"From the little cockpit, the train;
ed observer with maps and glasses,
surveyed the wonderful panorama of
war. Between Mustapha Pasha and
Adrlanople the country ts a corrugated
series of hills and valleys, effectually
shutting from us here any glimpse
either of the enemy or of our flrst
line.
"To the aerial scouts, however,
these hills were no more than a row
of insignificant ridges cut by tbe broad
valley of the widening Maritza, wttb a
crooked yellow ribbon, tbe great Constantinople road, as the most pronounced landmark. ,,

���lassos of people than that exerted b.v
the Duchess ol Sutherland.   She was
the  eldest  daughter   of  the   Duke   ol
Rosslyn and was born in 1869.   Married when very young, from the time
when  she first  assumed  her  position
as  mistress of several famous ancestral  homes,  she  has  shown a serious
trend of mind and haa been interested
in all sorts of social questions.   When
I she  vas  yet a  bride, she noticed  in
1 goin;? over her husband's estate that
some  of  the  women   were  neglecting
th�� ir homes and their families because
they were employed away from home.
The duchess determined  to get them
work which could be done at home so
that they could earn a living and at
tlie same time look after their families.   She worked hard, and very successfully, to encourage the revival of
the hand loom weavirlg of homespuns,
serges, and tweeds.   The sale of these
goods   she   fostered   by   wearing   the
stuffs  herself   and   encouraging   her
friends to wear them.
The duchess gives up a certain portion of her "time every week working
as a nurse for the sick and the poor.
Bhe wears the regular nurse's uniform
and does all the hard work required
of the professional nurse The institution in which she nurses is a small
hospital founded . by herself for the
purpose of giving the sea water treat-
meril introduced by Dr. Quinton, of
Paris The treatment is especiblly de
signed to cure diseases arising (mm'
overcrowding.
Although interested in charities and
good works of all descriptions, the
duchess does not neglect ber own
home, for she practices what she
preaches. Her husband owns half a
dozen magnificent estate* in different
parte of the kingdom and the duchesi>
superintends a! I the household affair*
of each of them. She is a distinguished-looking woman and while she doer
not possess the remskable beauty of
her half-sister. Lady Warwick, she has
s charm which is no less compelling.
Her husband is said to be mucb
prouder of the duchess than be is of
being head of the great house of Sutherland.

CAPITAL PUNISHMENT.
Tbe utmoQt penalty of the law Is to
be visited on Convict Joseph Smith,
tonnd guilty yeaterday evening of thn
murder of Guard Joynson. The sent,
ence of the court ls the only one that
oould he imposed after the jury had
brought In Its verdict cf guilty.
The old Mosaic law of a life for
lite Is opposed by a large number of
intelligent persons today. Many of
tbe States in the Union have abolished capital punishment, but we hope
the day is far distant when British
juatice will punish murder by im
prisonmenl only.
In the world's early history the
execution cf murderers was looked
upon merely as a punishment, and
with some of the ancients the punishment was made to lit the crime. Atro
city was punished by atrocity, fiend
ishness by fiendish ness, and often the
station in life of the victim was also
considered in the visitation on the
criminal.
As civilization progressed capita'
punishment came to be considered
more as a crime deterrent than a
punishment But the public men of a
tew hundred years aj.o overstepped
tlie mark, and the executions of murderers In public became a holiday
rather lhan a solemn warning to
others of like inclinations. In nearly
all civilized countries today executions, while nominally public, are
really conducted in private, the public
being represented by a privileged few
admitted by virtue of their office or by
courtesy of the sheriff or other official.
Hanging as a mob amusement is
thing of the past, never to be revived.
The necessity for capital punishment, or "murder by the state" as it
haa been called by some clever
writers, is an unfortunate condition
that is still with us. We may deplore
thia, but wc must recognize it as a
truth. Criminologists declare there
are but two things the vicious fear,
one is the lash, the other the gallows.
Within the borders of the British
Brnpire, murder means death to the
convicted man. Money, position,
political affiliations���these things
count as nought to the blind goddess
of justice. "He that killeth shall surely die."
To take another man's life Ib an
awful thing, but there ls a great difference between capital punishment
and murder, imprisonment, eveu life
imprisonment, is uot a sufficient punishment for a murderer, and it is nc
deterrent to others. The state owes
a duty to society, and the ends of
justice can only be served by the execution of the doalh warrant when
man has been guilty cf the crime of
Cain.

Purity in food, lower cost of living���
these are the demands of the day.
Pure food is health, and health is economy itself. We cannot have health without healthful food.
The most healthful foods are the quickly raised flour foods-
biscuit, cake, muffins, crusts and other pastry when perfectly
made from wholesome ingredients
Dr. PRICE'S baking powder makes these foods in specially
attractive, appetizing and wholesome form, .and for both
economic and hygienic reasons, such foods should be more
largely substituted for meat in the daily diet
But bear in mind that alum, or
unwholesome baking powder, can
never make pure, wholesome food.

| WHAT   LEADS  TO   WAR?
A local paper which is trying to
pound it into the hreid3 of its readers
that war is a crime finds it necessary
to justify its counw. It likens Its mission to that of a preacher who though
he realizes that there will always be

If there are preachers today thun-

Such a preacher would be almost as

it, ia generally taken for granted
among civilized people thnt murder
and war are atrocities. It is generally
agreed that every possible means
should be taken to prevent them, but
to indulge in pulings about their Immorality is not likely to dn much
good. To suggest that the best means
-of preventing murder would be to
abolish the police force is on a par
with the argument that a state of pre-
Iiaredness for war Ih an incentive to
-war.
lt Is not necessary to argue that the
stranger a nation is the less is the
danger of its being attacked. Com

A .preacher should warn his hearers
The Xew York Times, in a most
prominent position on the front page
of its issue of Thursday, hoi this to
say of the St. Lawrence route:
"The River and Culf of St. Lawrence are recognized in shipping circles a3 the graveyard of ccean steamers. Their danger is attributed chiefly to the ignorance and incompetence
of the French-Canadian pilots, who are
farmers during the long winter
months, and take no pains to discover
the changes made in the channels of
the river from time to time.
Last sprint? tlie Allan, Canadian Pacific, and White Star Lines held a conference to see what steps could be
taken to compel the Canadian Government to do away with the old pilot system and appoint a new Pilot Board
composed of intelligent men who
would know how to handle a ship
properly. The strength of the present
pilot system lies in the political influence tt can wield locally."
The country is spending millions
freely In making the St. Lawrence
safe. It seems to be high time to
tackle the "human" side of the problem when items such as this are given
publicity.���Toronto Globe.

Radical Changes in    Renu'atlons   for
B. C.���Encourage Settlement and
Exclude Japanese.
Ottawa, Nov. 15.���As a result oT
the conferences hen; between Hon. J
D. Hazen and Hon. W. .T. Bowser, com
missloner of fisheries and attorney
general of British Columbia, ��jme
radical changes have been agreed upon in the fisheries regulations for Brit
Ish Columbia waters.
The main feature of the new pnlic;.
is the encouragement of white fisher
men to the exclusion of the Japanese-
fishermen who have of late years been
gradually ousting the white fishermen
i and securing in conjunction with the
canners combine a virtual monopoly
' of the. fishing industry.
] Under existing regulations fisher
men engaged in the salmon induBtry
are practically tied up to the canneries and Japanese have been mainly
employed. The latter have been conveyed annually to the fishing areas
by the cannera and consequently almost no settlement of resident fishermen have sprung up. With the settlement of the province during recent
years, the provincial government believes that under suitable regulations
encouraging the white fishermen and
restricting Japanese competition permanent settlement of the former
would result along the seven thousand
miles of the British Columbia coast
line.
To accomplish this the new regulations dgieed upon by MessrB. Hazen
1 and Bowser, representing the two gov-
' ernnients, will reserve until Marchr Vt
of each year as many l'censes allotted
to each area as there Is reason to anticipate will be applied for by bona
fide white fishermen owning their
own gear. The balance of the licens".;
will bo allowed to the existing csn
nerles who can employ anyone thev
please. whlteB or Japanese, for these

The white fishermen will thus hav"
preference !n regard to the issuing of
the licenses and under the new conditions should be able to meet .lupines'!

1 School fcr Hockey.
Amateur skaters are marking t'me
until the lease between the city and
the rink company is signed, when
siep9 will be taken to organize an
amateur hockey league In the city. No
clubs have been suggested as yet, but
frcm all accounts {here Is plenty of
material for at least three teams.
The suggestion of the Patrick
brothers to organize a hockey league
among the amateurs comprising the
three cities of New Westminster,
Vancouver and Victoria, ehould take
well with the enthusiasts and also tha
players. It will probably be two years
at least before the professional bodies
cau ever hope to recruit from any
place other than the East,' but as soon
as thiB can be accomplished, the support of the public will be more emphatic.
New Westminster haa well earned
the reputation of being the nursery
of the West ln the matter of lacrosse,
and who knows but wbat the city will
also turn out several of the star hockey players before long. We have tho
Turnbulla, Springs and Rennies in
lacrosse and there is no reason why
We should not turu out some of this
calibre ln hockey too.
New Westminster as a sporting
centre will be further stamped upon
the athletic map by the fact that two
provincial records made at tbe cham
pionghips held during fair week will
stand, and will be forwarded to the
proper authorities of the Canadian
Amateur Athletic association.
The records   were   made by   John

COR YOU WHO WORK the year round for your employer to get enough
i mpney to enable you to live (and in Westminster, after you have paid your
bills, including rent, you have to start over again after each rent day), the
great dread of your life is Rent Day; Rent puts the biggest hole in your

removed and life will be more enjoyable. There will be a future���something to look ahead to���

the constantly increasing value of Westminster real estate. You can then say "MY HOME . . OUR
HOME" and you ought to make any sacrifice to accomplish this.
Without a clear deed to a paid-up close-in lot you cannot borrow money to build a home. Unless
you own a lot you usually have to make a first payment of several hundred dollars cash. These
terms have kept you paying rent.
HERE IS YOUR CHANCE TO ATTAIN THAT LIFE DREAM OF
"A HOME"

An exciting runaway occurred on
Fourth streeL yesterday which fortunately ended with very little damage
being done. A team attached to a
West End grocery wagon became
alarmed and started off citywards,
scattering the contents of several
boxes fn wild confusion along the
course taken. Near the corner of
Queens avenue the team turned into

minor damage was done to the rig.

explained that a verdict of manslaughter must be reached solely upon the
evidence, and stated that in his opinion, which he did not by any means
Intend as a direction, the record of
tive case would not justify a manslaughter verdict.
Fifteen minutes later the jury reappeared and this time announced Its
verdict of guilty. They alao aaked that
the record be forwarded to the proper
authoritiea with a recommendation ol
action looking to a commutation ol
the sentence of Convict Williams who
testified in the case and who had apparently made an effort to interfere*
in behalf of the guards. This the
court stated would be done.
"Smith, stand up," said the court.
"I am standing sir," replied Smith
firmly.
Have you anything to say why sentence should not be pronounced ?"
"I have nothing to say, sir."
He was then sentenced and court
adjourned until Monday.
RICHMOND MAIN SPRINGS
STILL ANOTHER LEAK
Another leak was discovered yester
day morning in the water main whicii
runs under Lulu Island bridge, and
anxiety is felt aa to how long the
section remaining intact will stand
the terrific strain that ls being put
upon it. Should this leak extend o��
others occur there Is a possibility thai
Richmond and Queensborough may
have to go without water for a period
This is the third successive leak
that has occurred and the expense ol
repairing the damage emphasizes the
necesaily of atarting work on the new
main aa early as possible. It ls under
stood that divers will once more be
set to work to repair the leak.
UNANIMOUS   VERDICT.
Newspaper  publishers and  citizens
generally throughout the Dominion are
unanimoua in their opinion   that   the
picture entitled "Mother's Treasures,"
given with The    Family Herald   and
Weekly Star of Montreal, this season,
is a most delightful and beautiful sub-
ject.   Here Is the opinion of one pub- j
Usher:    "'Mother's Treasures,'   ls   a>
marvel of beauty.   The subject is ono
that will have a tendency to strength- j
en home ties.   We, ln the same bus!1
ness, wonder how you can afford to
give such value ln pictures besides the '
vast amount of good  things in The .
Family    Herald    and    Weekly    Star.

Long ago in old Madrid a gallant
sang to his lady fair���but times havo
changed since then and now from the
Spanish capital letters are being sunt
to New Westminster from a "gentleman" signing himself "Ivanovitch,"
praying the recipients to aid In saving
his daughter's fortune and. incident
ally, lo enrich themselves thereby.
It Is, of course, the old Spanish
prisoner dodge, but as there may ho
some in New Westminster to whom
this swindle 13 unknown, they may
take note that one of these letters received by a resident here tills week
has been handed to the News.
A doubtful clipping is enclosed detailing the arrest in England of an
absconding St. Petersburg banker who
is wanted in RusBla and in Spain. HO
is taken to the latter country, nothing
being found in his portmanteaus. Ths
ietter purports to be from a prison in
Madrid and states that papers in n
secret pocket in the seized portmanteaus will enable Ivanovitch to recover $480,000 in the U. S. A. One-
third of this flunder is offpred the
person who will cable for details as
to how the deed is to be done.

The jury then left the room, and
the prisoner waa taken below. Counsel
Hansford thought that the court had
not sufficiently explained the manslaughter charge, and the jury waB
brought back. Smith appeared rather
| nervous, showing signs of weakness
for the lirst time since th�� case commenced, evidently thinking a verdict
I had been reached In the few moments
which the jury waa absent.
Shortly after seven   they   returned
