Deed in Saving Little Boy Who
Fell from 8teamer.
There have been many stories of
thrilling rescues of drowning persons,
but the one which took place on Sunday afternoon In the mighty Fraser
deserves mention on account of the
quick presence of mind of the brave
man who Jumped and dragged from
the turbulent waters, a little five year
old boy. The latter Is the sou of Mr.
J. W. Murphy, of Langley Pralrle, and
together with his little brother and
parents was a passenger on the Mlna
W. going down river.
The two boys were racing around
the deck watching a passing tug, the
Mamie, and iu some manner one of
them fell into the water. The wheelman of the Mamie, named Postlewaite
seeing (he plight ofthe youngster,
immediately jammed the wheel over
and yelling to a deck hand to take
his place, jumped Into the stream.
He caught hold of the boy who wab
lying on his back and held on until
the two boats hove to.
A man from the Mlna W. also
jumped Into the water, but aB the
boat was some distance from the boy
before tbe latter's plight was discovered, the real hero of the afternoon was Postlewaite. lie assumed
his position at the wheel afterwards
showing little concern of what had
happened.

A new and more efficient system for
the receiving of complaints regarding
unsanitary conditions is being evolved
by the officials of the city health de
partment. The purpose of the new
system is to keep a check on all complaints received, record the name.-
and addresses of the complainants and
in general tb facilitate the work o:
the department.
Hitherto it has been the custom ol
the department to receive complaint*
regarding unsanitary conditions from
any given person without receiving
the complainants names and ad
dresses. This system hes proved
very unsatisfactory ot late on account
cf the fact that on Investigating
lt haB been found that some of the
places complained of did not warrant
an Inspection. In caues like this In
the future the department will be
able to take the matter up with the
complainants and request an explanation of the complaints.
The new system will record the
name of the person complaining and
address, premises complained of and
location, nature of complaint and later
the action taken by the authorities,
the whole to be signed by the health
inspector.
For the purpose of finding out whether the provisions of the city sanitary bylaw are being adhered to,
Health Inspector S. J. Pearce and
Building Inspector T. Turnbull will
make a tour of all the horee stables
In the city within the next few days.
Many complaints have been received
of late at the city hall as to the un-
aanitary condltloiiB of Bome of these
places, and the health authorities wlll
see that the regulations governing
stables and suchlike are rigidly enforced as far as possible In future.
The health department ls awaiting
the arrival of a specially constructed
sheet Iron garbage wagon. The new
wagon will be used for removing restaurant swill and refuse between tU
hour of midnight and 6 o'clock In the
morning. Hitherto lt has been the
custom to remove thla garbage during
the day time, hut for hygwic reasons
the hourB during which this work has
been done wlll be altered when the
new rig arrives.
BRIDGE BUILDING
IN SHORT ORDER
Three Days Saw Two Erected on War-
hoop Trail���Matsqui   Rock
Bunkers Completed.
Some exceptional fast tive has
beeu made on some of the provincial
government work being done ln the
various municipalities of the Fraser
valley. According to one report that
has reached the road superintendent's
office two bridges on the Warhoop
trail, Langley Pralrle, were completed
In three days' time.
The speed with which the bridges
were erected Is all the more remarkable when lt is taken Into consideration that the timber uaed In the heavy
construction was out right out of the
woods, prepared and placed In position. One of the bridges waa 175 feet
long and the other 70 feet. To foreman R. A. Clarke and a gang of
seven workmen ls laid the credit for
the speedy work.
Another bridge on a Langley Pralrle
road iu which 11,000 feet of finished
lumber used was completed In the remarkably short time of two hours by
the same gang.
The road superintendent's office also reports the completion of the Matsqui rock bunkers. These structures
which are located ln the Indian reservation near Gilford stat'^ '. cost ln
the neighborhood of $6000 .ud will be
used for tho purpose df storing road
material for government work.
PRIVY COUNCIL TO
BE MUCH IMPROVED
Personnel    Remains   Same���Arrangements to Meet Needs of Oversea
Dominions.
Londou, Sept. I.���The Canadian
Associated Press ls Informed that a
second attempt to strengthen the
judicial committee of the privy council, whose decisions in the past have
been far from satisfactory to the
colonies, will be made shortly after
the meeting of parliament.
Reports which appeared in the
Canadian press claiming tbat Lord
Chancellor Haldane proposed to add
the name of Chief Justice Fitzpatrick
to the active body were purely imaginary. The personnel of the commission will apparently remain the
same as hitherto.
While the court is also to remain
distinct, the proposed amalgamation
with the supreme court of appeals being conaidered unworkable to meet
the particular needs of the dominions
overseas, it ls understood the assessors possessing special knowledge of
the point* at Issue-will be admitted
and will assist their lordships In arriving at decisions.
BANK  ROBBERY CACE
Mine Explosion.
Lens, France, Sept. 3.���As the result of an explosion of black damp today ln a coal mine near Bruay, sixty
men were entombed. Fourteen men
were taken out of the pit after the
explosion. All ot them were badly
burned.
Port Moody is to be a city. Yester
day morning Mr. Robert Abernethy,
chairman of the incorporation committee, received an official letter from
the attorney general's department.
Victoria, Intimating the decision of
the provincial government to bring li,
special legislation at the forthcoming
parliamentary session, constituting
the one time terminus cf the C. P. K.
a city.
This is the outcome of a petition by
the land owners and residents ot
Port Moody, backed up by a personal
Interview between the committee and
the attorney general.
Area of 3500 Acres.
A special act is necessary as the
area of the proposed new city em
braces approximately 3500 acres.
whereas 2000 acres is the limit for an
ordinary charter. The committee ls
required to get, what ha3 already
been secured, namely, the consent of
over 50 per cent, of the property
holders In Port Moody and ln the tn
virous proposed to be Included in the
city, and to supply the names and
number of all British subjects over 21
years of age affected by the incorporating charter. These are mere formalities as the committee was Bure of
the ground before its members approached the government.
Feeling Is Unanimous.
Port Moody proper is unanimous on
the subject and the new annexes,
realizing the Importance of attachment to the latest city by the sea,
with ita commercial potentialities at
thej^ead of Burrard inlet, are just as
tfhttfttsiastle as Port Moody.
Until  within   three  yeara  ago   Port

tton, but the Panama canal and Its
gigantic possibilities have changed
all that. No longer content to meander along under the aegis of a paternal government the old Port ts deter
mined to use every effort to materialize her dreams of greatness.
Schemes of Canal.
Already two canal schemes are in
concrete form .to connect the Port
with the Pitt river, one via Colonel
Moody's route, surveyed some forty
years ago, and lately resuscitated by
Mr. J. H. Gilmer, C. E., Vancouver,
and tn the interests of Coquitlam
municipality submitted to Vancouver
city council and still under consideration.
Another promoted bv private enter-1
prise recently, which has not yet beeu J
brought before the    public,    but    at
which an eminent hydraulic engineer
has been working quietly all summer
and which will shortly be submitted
to the government.    The latter sug
gests a different route from Mr. Gilmer's, slightly longer, traversing land
not so level, but It ls claimed   more
economical and advantageous ultimately.
Meanwhile Port Moody is a factor
to be reckoned with in Pacific Coast
development.
Foundation Stone of New High School
Laid by  Sir  Richard  McQrlde
���City en Fete. <n      d
The city of Chilliwack \as en fete
yesterday on the occasion of the pre
sence qf, Sir Richard McBride In the
town to lay the toundation atone oi
tbe new high school. Flags and bunt
lng were flying from many of the
buildings and residences, while everywhere a holiday and celebration feeling pervaded.
The premier and a party of prominent men left the Westminster depot
of the B. C. Electr'c at 9.30 on a special car, making the run down the
valley In three hours time, on arra-
ing at Chilliwack the party was mei
>y the members of the school board
and the majority of the promluent
citizens. After a short address of
welcome had been accorded the visitors, the party left for,the hotel e*
corted by the Chilliwack City Band
and a party of Boy Scouts.
There lunch wa3 served after which
motor cars took the visitors to the
scene of the day's principal event. A
platform was erected on the site of
the new high school building and in
front of this was gathered an immense crowd, among which were arranged in the neighborhood of 100U
children waving flags.
Mr. H. J. Barber, of the achool
board, opened the proceedings with
a short speech of welcome to the visitors and after speeches were made by
several members of the visiting party
the ceremony of laying the foundation
ctone was enacted by Sir Richard,
and, following, a prayer was offered
by the pastor of the Chilliwack Presbyterian church. The Premier then
in a short address referred to the marvellous growth of the city since he
last visited It and recalled memories
of the Chilliwack of tlie old days. He
alluded to the spirit Of optimism that
was abroad in the city and discoursed at length on the vast strides thai
had been made in educational matters
throughput the province during the
last few years.

Canada Power Co.
High Power   Line    from    Ardley

Delta Next
to
here
Edmonds, Sept. 8���What ls thought
by many to be an important move,
was uncovered this evening at the
council meeting when an application
was received from Mr. W. McNeill assistant manager of the Western Can
ada Power company, for permisaicu
to construct a high potential pole lino
from the Ardley substation cf the c m-
pany to the north bank of the North
Arm of the Fraser.
Thc Ardley station is located on
the north side of Burnaby lake near
Hastings townsite, and this will be
the flrst line of the company running
north and south through the municipality. At present it ba3 several lines
in tho northern section of Burnaby
and is entering into competition with
the B. C. Electric in the sale of power
to large and small consumers.
Must Widen Roads.
The coustruction of thi3 new pole
line will make necessary the widening of several of the roads of Burnaby, especially Sussex and the South
roads, a3 it 13 considered dangerous
to- allow a company to construct a
high powered line along a 33 foot
street, which is the width of several
sections cf these thoroughfares at the
present time. ���
Action on tho matter wa3 deferred
by the council this evening and the
official of the company will be asked
to attend the neit meeting of the
board of works when further plans
are expected to be disclosed.
Invade Southern District.
However, it is considered that
enough has been shown to indicate
that the company is seaking entrance
���o���s*iSo*
go further south Into the rich and yet
the special car proceeded straight to (unopened section known as the Delta.
Vancouver with the premier and the
other than Westminster members of
his  party. ,.
Those who accompanied Sir Richard
on the trip were: Hon. D. M. Eberts.
K.C. speaker of the B. C. legislature;
Mr. J. D. Taylor. M. P.: Mr. William
Manson. M. P. P. for Dewdney; Mr.
Frank McKenzie, M. P. P. for Delta;
Mr. J. P. Shaw, M. P. P. for Kamloops; Mr. J. J. Cambridge, registrar
of county court, Westminster; Mr.
S. Fletcher,' government agent, city;
Mr. Thomas Gifford, M. P. P.. Westminster, and Mr. F. R. Glover and
Mr. Allan Purvis, of the B. C. E. R.
While little has been heard ot late-
in connection with the plans of the
International Electric railway running
south out of Vancouver, it is altogether possible'that this new move on
the part ot the Western Canada Power
company is to eventually supply the
current for this new transportation
line.

It is expected, accord'ng to the

Charles Dean on Thursday morning
when the latter comes up tor Another

It will be remembered that nt the

Adam S. Johneon, made strong objections concerning the length of time
h's client had been Incarcerated; mentioning January 3, 1912, as the date
when he was flrst apprehended.
To this Mr. E. P. Davl3 replied that
this was entirely Dean's own fault in
resisting extradition. However, Mr.
Davis promised the court to try itU..

Taft Dwells on Need    of    Extending
Civil Service to All Government
Employeea.
Boston, Maaa., Sept. 3.���President
Taft tonight contraated the conditions
that confronted a president ln the
daya of the spoils system with the
system ot appointment under the
clvU servloe, attacked the house of
representatives- for attempting to
limit the tenure of government employees and declared that ao long as
he haa the power no old government
clerk need tear discharge unless the
United States has provided a system
of civil service pension to keep him
from want la hla <old use.
The president spoke In Faneull HaL
to several hundreds of office employeea now In convention here. Ho
said that the job of president In these
davs is not a thing of joy when appointments atti. considered, but the
times of Lincoln, he added, "must
have been a perfect, bell."
More than anything else he haa encountered In the White House, Mr.
taft aald, was the filling of vacancies
that are not under thc Jurisdiction of
the civil service, has proved Irksome
nnd distasteful to blm and three times
he has urged congress lh special messages to extend the blanket of the
civil service to all government em-
plovees.
The president motored , in from
Beverley three hours before hla traiu
left for Washington tonight, to speak
to the clerka.
Remarkable  Financial  Move  by Bur
naby���Reeve Weart Announced
in London.
Edmonds, Sopt. 3.���A financial
move, unheard of among western
municipalities, was made last evening
by the Burnaby council when it was
decided to cable Reeve Weart, who la
in London at the present time, to purchase a bleck ot Burnaby municipal
bonds to the amount of $20,000 which
are on the market ln London, for the
municipality itself.
Burnaby, together with many other
Canadian cities and municipalities, Is
feeling the pinch of the present situation ln the London market with regard to municipal flotations, and this
move may result In expediting the
aale of the remainder of the bonds.
According to the comptroller, the
municipality has something like $19,-
400 lh the bank at the present time,
and with other, amounts coming ln,
there will be enough to supply the
$20,000 necesaaryr *"
This was the flrat Intimation of
Reeve Weart being in England, as It
waa thought he was on s business
trip to the eastern provinces, and according to one report, was expected
bafck to Burnaby aome time next
week.
CLERK OF WEATHER
Startling Revelations by Rain Guage
at City Hall.
It rained Just .31 Inches ��� between
noon on Friday last and Saturday at
midnight, according tp tbe dty hall
ra'n registrar, bringing the total rainfall for the month up to 5.75 inches.
This Agnre   la   exactly   4.$8   Inches
Sead ot the measurements tor the
(���responding period of last yfear and
only .21 Inches less than January, a
mid-winter month this year. The most
remarkable cf Ml. however, are tht
measurements of the rainfall tor thb
week ending September 2. Labor Day.
No lew than 2.42 Inches of rain fell
during the week, which Is the record
tor any like period since the lnstru-
meuts were Inserted in tbe elty ball.
Post office returns probably Indicate'
the prosperity of a city more than
anything else. Tbe results of the
past month at the Westminster post
office show conclusively that the
Royal City is steadily forging ahead.,
the month of August of this year was-
one of the busiest tbat the local office
has gone through and from now on..
according to Postmaster MacDonald..
au even larger increase is expected?
than ever before.
The total money order sales during
August were 2338, which is an increase of 577 over August of 1911.
Money order commissions are $368.47.
an increase of $93.63 over the same
month ln 1911. The box rents sbow
the greatest increase. Whereas in
August, 1911, only $90.50 was collected, thla year the sum of $214.15 waa
paid over the counter. The stamp
sales show a corresponding addition,
$660.58 being tbe increase reported .
over August of last year.
The head ot the Westminster office
bas received a reply from the Ottawa
authorities as to his request for more-
help, stating that the matter was receiving careful consideration and thet
the Vancouver inspector would make
a report ln the very near future. This,
according to Mr. MacDonald, is absolutely essential if the people ot
New Westminster are to get adequate
service in the delivery and dispatch
of mail matter.
At the present time, the staff is
working at full Speed trying to take
care of the increasing mall matter
and wltb the amall force he h&s in
charge, tbe service that Is now beiftjg
given, is in his opinion very fair in*
deed. Juat what lt will be during the
next four months can on'-; be Imagined, but It la safe in statins that unless
more clerical help la placed in ��� the
office there wlll be such a- flood ot
mail remaining unsorted arter. tbe
day's work that the residents of tbe
ctty cannot expect letters .posted ia
tbe ctty to be delivered fcr two or
three days after the date mailed.
However, Mr. MacDonald la ln an
optlmlRtic mood and expects that tbe
post office department at Ottawa will
accede to tbe request of the public
bodies ot the city tor more clerical.

Sixty Young  People  Depict Thrilling
Scenes  From  Revolution  in  Flowery   Land.
Before an audience comprised
mostly of Chinese, the "Revolution in
China" was depicted In a most realistic manner in the Westminster
Opera House on Saturday night, in a
play consisting of eight acts and sixteen different scenes, and In which
sixty Chinese boys and girls from the
city. Vancouver and Victoria took
part.
Every important happening in the
recent great war which transformed
China into a republic, was portrayed
In a manner that thrilled and delighted the hearts of the Orientals In the
audience.
The drama commenced with a
scene showing the fallen Manchu
dynasty at tho opening of the war
and ended with the appointment of
Dr. Sun Yat Sen as president. A
sham batile took place in almost
every act, and nurses aud the red
cross corps were conspicuous at all
times. So natural did tho play seem
to the Chinese present that at tinie.s
they were carried literally off their
feet, and yells cf delight and enthusiasm burst from all parts of the
theatre as first one and then another
disaster or reverse suffered by the
Imperialist side was acted by the
versatile children.
In all the show was something
unique and new and was thoroughly
"iijoyed by all those who witnessed
it, both Occidental and Oriental.

BRIDGE TORN AWAY
TRAIN PLUNGES IN
Four Killed,   Twenty-six    Injured    In
Wreck Caused by Floods in
Wisconsin.
Camp Douglas, Wis., Sept. 3.-���
Four persons were killed ln the
wreck of passenger train No. 10 on
the C, Ct. P., M. & O. Railway, which
plunged Into the Lemonweir river
near Camp Douglas yesterday owing
to the washing away of a bridge.
Twenty-six persons were injured, six
of them seriously.
Every car, including the sleepers
with passengers still in their berths,
was hurled into the stream, whost
waters, augmented by the cloudburst
of last night, had made  It a torrent.
Panic-stricken occupants of sleeping cars, clad only in night clothes,
struggled through broken windows to
escape. Thc smoking car was carried down stream, but all its occu-
pauts escaped.
The dead are: Engineer Ralph
Thompson, Fireman Abraham, mail
clerk (name unknown), Baggageman
Lee.
The train had passed safely over
the bridge a short time before, but
was flagged at the tunnel, because or
a washout further on ahead, whicl:
made the track impassable, and was
ordered buck to Camp Douglas, sr
that the passengers might breakfast
Meanwhile the Lemonweir river
flooded by a cloudburst several miles
up the valley, had torn away tin
bridge, and, unwarned, the englneei
could not stop his train in t'mq ti
save it from  plunging into the rivei
Relief trains, bearing doctors and
nurses, were sent out from severs
nearby towns. Many of the injurec
are women and children, and railroad
men regard it as wonderful that sc
few lives were lost, considering thf
crowd on the train.

ARBITRATION IS       j WIRELESS THE KEY
BRITAIN'S DEMAND     TO NORTH COUNTRY
Official   Announcement   that    Formal \ Yukon    Territory Wants   Advantages
Demand Will  Be Made t'pcn ' Similar to Those Provided by
United States.
London, Sept 3,���It Is officially announced that the British Government
will make a formal demand upon the
United States Government for arbitration of its claim that the Panama
Canal toll act as passed recently by
the United States congress, violates
the Hay-Pauncefote treaty.
Nothing definite is known here beyond the brief official announcement
that formal demand, for arbitration
will be made, but it is believed that
Instructions are cn route to the British embassy at Washington, concerning the situation.
The British demand will be made
under the arbitration convention of
1908. Great Britain's contention will
be that the question at issue does not
affect the vital Interests, Independence or honor of the United State3
and that, therefore, it Ib clearly within the scope of the 1908 convention,
since the matter to be arbitrated is
not an act of congress but an interpretation of article three of the Hay-
Pauncefote Treaty.
Not Likely to Yield.
Washington, Sept. 3.���When aBked
whether Great Britain would make
formal demand on the United States
for arbitration of the dispute over
the Panama Canal tolls, Mr. Huntington Wilson, the acting secretary
of state, said he had no comment to
make.
That such a demand would formally be made had been expected in the
state department ever since the sec- \
ond   ncte  from   the   British   govern-
ment on the subject.    From the atti-1
tude of  this   government,   thus   far
with relation to the dispute, the opin-'
ion  here is general that the United
States will  not yield to the demand
for arbitration of its right  to relieve
coast-wise shipping from tolls in the
Panama   Canal   without   a   prolonged
diplomatic  struggle.    In   some   quarters  the opinion  is  maintained   that
the demand will be flatly declined.
In the last  note  from  Great  Britain, presented   to  the   state   department    a  week  ago,  by  the    British
charge, it was set forth that If a careful reading of the Panama act should I
justify the impression caused by flrst I
perusal,     the     British     Government
should feel  It  necessary to ask that I
the   question    be   submitted    to    the
Hague Tribunal.
It is expected that the basis for thej
atate department's primary declination to accede to this request will be;
the fact that as the American coast- \
wise trade has for many years been j
barred by domestic laws to foreign |
slilpping, it cannot be maintained j
that British shipping Is to be dis-1
criminated against b.v the proposed j
canal ri'i.ul.iiions which at this stage
do not apply to foreign commerce. It i
will be pointed out by tho Mate d��- |
partment that as far as thnt cotn- j
merce Is concerned, British and Am- i
erican shipping will be on terms of!
perfect equality in the use of the j
canal.
President  Surprised.
Beverley. Mass.. Sept. 8.���The an- I
aonncement that Great Britain will j
appeal to tiie Hague Tribunal to set- J
tie Its claim of violation of the Hay- j
Pauncefota treaty by the Panama |
Canala Art came as a surprise to
President Taft.
The president was not ready tonight to make au expression about
the appeal to The Hague. He had no
official word from the State Department and does pot expect to consider
the case until he reaches Washington. It was aaid that a decision
might not be reached until the return
of Secretary Knox.
It was pointed out that Great Britain's notice of appeal does not mean
that the matter must go to The
Hague. The United States has as
much right to refuse to submit to arbitration as Great Britain has to ask
It. Friends of the president realize
tliat'Great Britain's action places him
in a delicate poslticn. As the foremost advocate of universal arbitration and arbitration of every subject.
he is called upon to submit to The
Hague a case that Involves something In whicii every American feels
himself vitally Interested.
It was pointed out, however, that
the president will have flrm grounds
on which to base a refusal to arbitrate. His proposed arbitral cour'.
was to have been composed of citizens of tl.e two countries in dispute
and might, therefore, be expected to
give "a square deal" to the parties at
iMBfti
The Hague court, however, would
not contain a number of Americans
equal to the number of members
from ether eountrlea. All Kurope
feels much as Great Britain does
about the Panama Act and the tribunal composed largely of Europeans
could hardly be Just to America.
President Taft was aware when he
approved the Panama Act that further trouble with Great Britain would
follow He signed the bill reluctantly
but in the belief that if arbitration
became necessary the work of setting
up the "machinery" to operate and
administer the canal could go on.
This part of the law wns urgently
needed and he told friends that If arbitration were resorted   to and   the
United   States   were   defeated,   congress would have plenty of time   to
remedy the situation.

Alaskan  System.
Dawson,   Sept.    3.���"Yukon    Territory is hindered in not having a first-
class  wireless   service   installed   for
connection with the outside and with
j the Alaskan  wireless system.    I  be-
| lieve that the installation of a first-
class system for Dawson and the Yu-
kon would cost not to exceed the out-
I lay  for one  year in maintenance of
| the present Yukon wire system."
This is the statement made by M��.
j Falcon Joslin, who Installed and ls at
I the head of the company owning the
wireless system, now connecting Iditarod with the outside world.
"Iditarod," says Mr. Joslin, "has the
Teleluken system. It is an enexpen-
sive onorMind perfectly reliable. We
hnve staWiis at Nulato and Iditarod.
The buildings represented a big end
cf the expense there. Here builing3
might be found already available. We
use no large steel towers, but do use
long poles to support aerials.
"Our system has a guaranteed
-ange of 250 miles, but larger range
ian be provided. The Yukon might
be provided with a system working
Jlrect south along the old wire, or in
connection with coast stations. I believe Atlin might work in connection
vith Hazelton or Prince Rupert with
-i powerful station without intermediate stations. If the Marconi people have not exclusive rights in Canada, the Telefunken system would be
i good one for the local service in
this district."
Mr. Joslin explained in brief his
system to Dr. Alfred Thompson. The
doctor was much interested, and
made arrangements to get the detailed information on the system
when Mr. Joslin returns here ln the
fall.
Mr.  Joslin  is  going  to  Fairbanks,
ind may visit Iditarod.   He says that*

been prepared, the material ordered
and work will soon be commenced on
a $10,000 depot for the Great Northern Railway to replace the old one
:liat has answered that purpose since
1897, but which has grown too old
and weather-beaten, through many
vears of active service, to he of much
further use. The new structure is to
be of the same type cf architecture
a3 those of the depots on the main
Great Northern line. It will be, therefore, handsome in appearance and
will have ground dimensions of 30 by
90 feet, lt will be iiiovided witb all
tlie modern convenience*, electric
iikIH". not and oottt ���water, separate
lavatories for ladles and gentlemen,

yard and tried to get over the walla.
The local companies of the state
militia were ordered to tho prison at
once and it ia said had orders to
shoot tho flrst prison who attempted
to scale the walls.
The flre department was called to
the scene, seme fires having boon
started b.v the convicts.
When the prisoners reached the
yard they began burning everything
within roach. Fearing they would set
the factories on flre, the city firs ds
fiartment was summoned and aided
n the attempt to subdue the rioters.
Hundreds of shopmen and others are
on the streets surrounding the prison, and the special details of police

Labor   Enquiry.
Montreal, Sept. 3.���Sir George Askwith, president of the Industrial
Council, the British- commission appointed to make a governmental inquiry into how labor agreements may
best be enforced, and into labor legislation ln various countries, has arrived ln Montreal and will visit the
chief centres In Canada and the
United States, investigating Into the
working of the Lemieux Act.
Today he met a number of employers of in bor and also representatives of the working class. "I Intend
to meet employers of labor," he said,
"and persons who take an interest in
the labor question. I shall go to Ottawa, Toronto and probably to the
trades union congress at Guelph, and
then on to Calgary and Vancouver, In
order to see representatives of both
the employers and employees, and
later will visit the United States."
New York, Sept. 3.���On the application   of   States   Attorney  Whitman,
the   case   of   Police    Lieut.    Becker,
oharged with the murder of Herman
Rosenthal,    was    transfered     today j
from  the Court of General   Sessions
to  the  criminal    branch   of the   Supreme Court b.-fore Justice Goff, sit-!
ting  In extraordinary  term.    Becker,!
when charged, still  refused to plead, j
acting on  hij counsel's   advice,  that
the Indictment had been "improperly I
and illegally found." r
By direction of Justice Goff, a tech-1
nlcal plea of not guilty was entered
for the prisoner. Counsel for Becker protested that he was not ready
to go to trial but Justice Goff quickly
overruled four motions for delay and
set the trial for Sept. 12.
To the surprise of all, Becker's
lawyer did not ask for a change of
venue. He requested, however, that
the trial be set some time about the
middle of October wben "The present
hysteria and clamor" should have
subsided.
Becker came into court nonchalantly and pleasantly greeted several
friends. lie stood and followed the
proceedings closely.
Aside from the arraignment of
Becker, the most interesting of the
day's developments in the case was
tbe discovery by the district attorney
cf two alleged hiding places for possible state witnesses conducted by
the so-called "vice trust" in Hoboken,
N. J., and Centreville, N. Y., and the
report that much money belonging to
Becker had been traced to Port Jervis, N. Y.
Some startling evidence on the
subject of police graft is likely to be
revealed in the reports of the aldermanic enquiry committee which is
just beginning to work here. Evidence of graft has been submitted to
the committee within the past twenty-four hours, covering a period cf
three years and involving, it is said,
nineteen police inspectors or captains
and numerous lesser officers.
It is said that the two police inspectors in the Manhattan district,
twelve police captains of the same
brrough, one police captain in the
Bronx and four in Brooklyn have
been enriched by the toll from disorderly houses aud gambling dens.
Further, It is asserted that several
police officials had confidential relation with pickpockets and thieves.
The criminals, it is said, have been
permitted to ply their illegitimate
calling for a percentage. One-half of
the proceeds of their loct paid out
by any cf the dozen fences throughout the city is understood to have
been turned over to the graft collectors. It is announced that William J.

"THE    DAY."
SAVE THE CHILDREN.
An important subject, and one
which at the present time is agitating
both Victoria and Vancouver, was
brought to the notice of the municipal
commission by Acting Mayor Gray,
���who asked whether some provision
could not be made for the better
regulation of the milk businesa In the
city and valley.
Some years ago the British Ules
was similarly agitated by a large
number of deaths which took place
among adults following the drinking
���of beer which contained a large -pro
portion cf arsenic. These deaths'wert
mostly among grown men. Tlie milk
situation differs somewhat from thc
poisoned beer circumstances in that
-as far as ia known no injurious chemicals are added to the liquid, and
moreover the deaths which ensue
from the use of impure milk are mainly confined to young children and in
fants. Consequently deaths which
take place for which little reason can
be ascribed attract very much lesa
notice.
The vast body of the public is little
touched by the resulta of any abuses
It is only when the   number   of   in
dfvlduala affected   grows   sufficiently
large that reforms are actively sought.
In Westminster today    there    ls evidence that milk is not handled in that j j
careful and sanitary manner it should
be to ensure protection from the addition of death dealing germs.   We nave
the best of authority for stating thai
���on more than one or two occasions
milk tickets have been found in   the
bottom of bottles of so-called "sterilized" milk after the main contents oi
the bottles ha3 been consumed by in-1
fants.
Other instances might be cited, bi:*
toeytma l\\\a, even -were Oie mlUt    rt>-
-o��Vvea   l-rv  v\i<s  cAVy   AeUvered   t.o     tlie
-consumer   iuat  aa  received   trom  ttie
farms, there would appear to t>e room
for improvement in the supervision of
the process   by   whicii   the milk   Is
drawn  from  the  cow  and  its subsequent handling until it is delivered to
the station.
A sorrowing parent writes us today
ftom a nearby city stating that his
infant son is dead. The doctors can
ascribe no cause save that he died in
convulsions, but the parents place the
blame upon the milk they were forced
tb use, as they state it was not possible to. obtain a bottle of certified
milk in the city.
The redress""or the present milk
regulation js. a matter which needs
some steps >t<l be taften by tho Dominion government, We earnestly
hope that future representations that
may be maile tfill not be as Ineffective
r*m*        if
as those made on previous occasions,
and from which no   improvement   ln
. conditions has resulted.
Fierce and Braggart German Poem of J
Victory   Over   Britain.
(London Express.)
A remarkable poem on the subject
of a great naval battle between the
fleets of Britain and Germany appeared recently ln the Sydney Sunday

It was signed O. C. Cabot, and is a
paean of triumph from the German
point of view, when the German battleships outnumber the  British.

��� "The Saturday Review, which fifty
years ago was, on account of its
slashing diatribes, familiarly known
as the Saturday Reviler, haa never
lost some pride in that reputation. It
has taken the occasion of this humiliating aberration of congress in
breaking a solemn national covenant
to denounce those who believe in the
ultimate good-will and mutual as
sistance that must prevail between
the two English peoples, and to declare that spite against England will
always be found the ruling principle
with the people of the United Sates.
We do not not know what is to be
gained by thus cutting the cords of
kinship, which since the world began
has been a ruling factor in the acts
of nations. The quarrels of kin are
the more bitter, but they are the
more criminal; and to foment them
is folly. When a man looks into the
faces of his own folk he ought to see
himself. It Is, according to the Review's allegation, the Americans of
1776 who cherish such a spite against
Kngland that it is foolish to try ever
to be friends with them. In other
words it is the English people of
North America who are so evil minded that the English people of England can have no dealings with them.
Yet it Is not only fair to presume, but
may be accounted proved, that the
English people of England would, under like circumstances have been of
the same mind.
Had the people of England been
brought up to hear of nothing else
ln history but how their fathers
fought against a brutal tyranny, they
would have had this spite in their
bones, even though they had a generation ago discovered that the In-1
.send.s in which they had been nursed
come to the aid of the Mother Country in the matter of defence.
Mr. Grenfell said that the Britishers were in Canada not solely for the
purpose of making investments, but
also to study Canadian conditions
and ideals.

Black Hand Society Make Life a Burden for Rockefeller and Family.
New York, Sept. 3.���The secret of
the present alarm at the John D.
Rockefeller estate"fa the Pocantico
Hills, where, for weeks, disorder and
crime have been frequent, was learned today. The ordinary force of four
private watchmen has been increased
to eighteen, all negroes, armed with

supplemented with flve savage dreat
Dane dogs.
Then there are three deputy sheriffs under command of Under-sheriff
Rossltnr, of Westchester County and
six operatives of the W. J. Burns
agency, under Detective A. J. Boyd.
Thn Black Hand clique that has so
long boen Immune at Pocantico Hills
lias become so emboldened as to
threaten the lives and i property of
Mr. Rockefeller himself, his son and
his grandchildren, domnndlng heavy
ransom if their demands'are Ignored
or the authorities are called Into the
case.
John I). Rockefeller Jr. goes nowhere about the estate unless accompanied by guards. Some cf the letters have come by mall. One from
Palermo. Italy, where Detective Petrosino of New York, was murdereo
while seeking to expose the Hlack
Hand, demanded blackmail amounting to many million dollars.

Afflllation with B. C. A. A. U.

The conditions tliat prevailed at
the meeting of the City Soccer league

the most successful season that the
association has ever enjoyed will be
carried out this winter. Six clubs entered the race and together with
drawing up a schedule, the membei'3
decided to affiliate with the B. C. A.
A. U.
This 13 a new departure for the
league to make, but the action cf the
Sentor Amateur club in dropping out
cf the Vancouver and District league,
would indicate that the members desired to retain their standing so that
next season, if conditions are rosy,
they could enter the race with the
Vancouver and district clubs.
Two fraternal societies have joined
the organization in the Moose and
Odd Fellows. These together with
Westminster City, East Burnaby, S��d-
perton and tbe 104th regiment, will
constitute the league.
Tbe  following  Is the  schedule for

An important move was made in the
reorganization of the work of the
Y. M. 0. A. in Canada a few weeks
ago at a national convention in Winnipeg.
The Y. M. C. A. was placed upon a
more national basis. A Dominion-wide
organization to be known as the Canadian Convention of Young Men's
Christian Associations, having an executive agent, the Canadian National
Council, consisting of 36 men, was
founded. The National Council is to
provide thYee territorial committees
who are to look after work in districts
allotted to them. These will take the
place of the present provincial committees. The National Council is to
appoint a g"n"ra' secretary who will
be its representative for the work of
Dominion supervision. Each territorial committee will have its traveling
Secretary t-> look after detail in its
fie'd; also a local treasurer, who will
hold tl'.e position of assistant treasurer to the National Council. Territorial budgets will be approved by the
National  Council.
The existins provincial organizations have decided to disband. The
members of provincial committees ere
elected members of the new National
Council.
As regards the policy of the new
Y. M. C. A. scheme, it is agreed that
it is not intended to weaken in any
way the international bond between
the Associations of Canada and the
United States. But the aim of those
who have had charge of the reorganization is by uniting the Canadian
units of the Y. M. C. A. to make the
work of the Association in Canada
more effective as a national force.

The Roma Trio at the Royal theatre
arc well worth the attention of all
who love music. It matters not that
their songs are In a foreign tongue
the appreciation that greets their even
effort is sufficient sign that art is all
commanding. The tinkle and glamor
of far-away Italy is in their singing
and stringed music, the delight of
grand opera is there also for the
seeking. Their final number la3t
night "Funicula Fuuicule" .was admir
ably rendered and enthusiastically received.
For-the mid-week change of program on Thursday, Manager Gillis
has booked in four big acts. The supreme feature will be Carl Stock-
dale and Company, who will present
a very interesting melodramatic playlet entitled "The Gambler," which is
taken from real life. Carl Stockdale
is one of the best known stock actors
on the Pacific Coast, and it can be
safely said that this brand new offering of his will go over the footlights
as does the rest of his work. Mr.
Stockdale will be ably supported by
Hilda Graham aud Frank R. Armstrong.
Mable Dart is a charming little
soubrette who will be seen in her
own original Broadway sinking act.

British Farmers Face Ruin.
London. Sept. -3.���Reports from all
over the country state that except ln
the now unlikely event of an unusually fine September, none of the damage to the craps by the Inclement
weather of the last two months can
be made good. The loss to the farmers Is far greater than most people
maghie. *t can be reckoned ln mll-
I'Ofia cf pounds sterling, and It falla
upon men who, In the majority ofl
pa*""*, are unable to bear it. |
Thousands of British farmers stand
face to face today with hopelesi ruin
unless help comes from some quarter
outside their control.
Thousands of laborers are suffering
uow and will suffer still more during
the coming winter trom the curtailment of employment and all signs
point to the fact that the prosperity
of the British agricultural community*
has suffered a blow from which . It
wlll take ten years to recover. j

Ago���When White Woodwork Needs

Dear Elaa���I know how fond you
are of rending In tied and how opposed
your mother la to your Indulging In
tbls luxury, ao when I read recently
tbe remarks of a celebrated doctor on
thla tabooed subject 1 Immediately de
termlned to pass along tbe good news.
Here It ta: "Had It been tbe universal
practice twenty or thirty yenrs ago to
read lying down there wonld be iess
nearsightedness and lietter eyes tn the
community than now exist. Three
easily avoided errors cause all the
barm possible from reading tn a re-
cunilieiit hoHttkiii. rhe first often lend
Ing to tbe other two. They are tnsnttt
Oent or wroiigii directed light, snort
reading distance and tipping tbe book
out of a plane at right angles to the
line of vision.
"It. however, every one rending lying
down wlll so arrange his couch or bed
an that the light i-omes over the head
without striking the eyes and fulls
well over the page. If he will bold hts
book at a long reading distance and
take care thnt tbe line of letters shall
1 be at right angles to the line nf vt
alon. ne can he sure of doing his eyes
tio more barm tbaa If he were sit
tins up.
I "More than this, there Is much positively In favor of reading lying down
The recumbent posture allows more
rest nf fhe bodily structures than the
Sluing posture, nnd there ts greater
possibility ot resting and repair In thnt
position "
I    .Now.  doesn't  this scientific  line of
I thought  fall  right  In  with your lazy
idens on tbe subject?   1 am sure that
lit does.

As an Indication ttiat there is a turning point In tbe channel we see buoys
surmounted by triangles, cages, etc.
There are buoys whicb are also fog
signals, such as tbe bell buoy and the
Whistling huoy. The lurter Is used off

itself, it) has been found that these
buoys nre particularly udnpted to tur
bulent waters. Iiihkuiiic ti as rhe more
violent the sen Is tbe louder the sound
given out by the buoy. The whistling
buoy, a most unpleasant neighbor, may
be heard a nt distance of about ten
miles Under very favorable conditions
it hns heen heard fifteen mll��s.
The Ik'II buoy consists of the bottom
���ection ot a buoy Hunting lo the water

bearing a bell which. Instead of the

The ordinary buoy, uot of the whistling or tbe bell vurtety, Is mnde either
of wood or of Iron. Those of iron are
hollow witb air tight compartments
and Hre of three shapes, called respectively nun, can und Ice huoys.
Tbe nun buoy Is almost conical in
ahnpe. the can buoy approaches the
cylindrical form, and tbe Ice buoy ts
very long nnd narrow, somewhat re-
aeaibllns the spar buoy in form.
Tbe wooden or spar buoys are sticks
ranging In length from twelve to sixty
feet nnd painted according to the uses
to which they are to be put The
lower end Is fitted for a mooring chain
Buoys bnve many vicissitudes nnd
are exposed to many dangers. 1'asslng
���tenmers run down tbe Iron buoys and
rip them open or cut off big pieces of
���par buoys wltb their sharp propeller
blades. As tbe Iron buoys are made
in compartments, they are seldom

A Man Decides to Steal
and  Suffers   Por
the Theft
4.      By HENRY MELLABY
��� f ��� 1 j I ��� i ��� 1 ..|.].. 1 .;,..},

t *.
Here I am In prison for a crime I
have confessed, but bave not committed. And yet the most difficult Usk I
bave ls to keep the oue who would
suffer by exonerating me from doing
��. I bave been sent up for seven
jyears and shall probably serve ail of
the term except what 1 may get off
by Kood behavior-tbat Is. unless tbe
true story is divulged.
It came about In this way: I met
Mania at a barn dance. I was a farm
band and she the daughter of tbe
wealthiest farmer In the ctmnty. Tbere
was that betweeu us wbeu we flrst
saw each other to make us great happiness or great trouble, and whether It
was In this or in that or wbat It was
I can't say. I only know that we were
like the poles of the magnet���drawn
together by a power far beyond that
of tbe greatest magnet���for It was not
a senseless but a living force.
We danced together many times, and
when the dawn was breaking I was
her escort to her home. As I went
wltb her up the walk to the bouse, a
jrreat white structure with an L. for
the mnny things n farmer needs aud
noticed the huge barn full of grain, a
J  W4S OAUOHr WITH TUB AllTICLItBON ��ra
<-hlll caine upon m.v heart, for I saw
that Ihey were it burner lietwwn me
nnd the girl wbo would Inherit ilieiu
nt tier father's death
When I 1 mr ted from her I think we
were both dwelling ou this, fur u Claud
jmssed over ber young Umw us well
.nn over mine Nevertheless a thrill
ran through oilr rlssju-d bauds, aver
tn-uerlng our feiirs
Mnnln did not Invite tue to the
house, knowing tluH her father, who
at least Intended to guard her from
such an 1, would not permli nie tu
come there. Hut *h* Sist mr on fhe
hridge. which was midway lietweeo
ber home and the village, wher�� she
often went Down the river bank was
a secluded path an which we could
walk without fear af detection. Tbougb
pricked by conscience, I was nat stniDC
-enough ta enn<|iii��r myself or her and
go sway from her, far I bad not even
a good suit of clothaa. and waa sbe
oof an heiress?
For awhll*. despite tbe wrona of It.
there were flashes of teat In this for
bidden frulf and time. wh��n all but onr
dominant lore faded for th�� moment
ond left ns exquisite happlnesa But
there came s time when those periods
during which we were apart were on
bearable. We were drawing near that
condition wben pentup lore ninst burst
Its harriers It was Marois wh�� Ami
proposed flight fboujrh I had n*en
thinking of It The conditions could
not remnln as they were. Some one
who knew would tell: Msrola would he
shut up; our communication would be
broken. And so nt last we cnme to the
inevitable conclusion that we must go
away topether, Ite married and when
the knot had been tlwl would ask for
glreness.
I king hack 00 this period. It acems
to me ihat I must hare been dwiwntcd
1. s pauper, had no right to woo the
danghfer of a rich man. certainly no
right to consent to an elopement to
gain that which I could not train honor
ably. I was a thief aa mucb as or more
thon one who starves and steals bread
or the wherewithal to buy bread. I
was hungry far lovt, while tne starr
lng thief needs that wulch keep* the
ilfe In hts body Rut I yielded, and
now I am ikying the iiennlty.
And yet am I payln�� a penalty*
There Is In me a plansln* sense of do
lng (icnanre for my alri. la It far the
sin? Na: If la far ber I lore. I Rlory
In my siilterliiR. aluce I know that I
have saved her from whal I could not
hear to har* brought upon her.
If we were to go away together we
should hnve gone sooner. Farmer Hos
met ��oi wind of aomethlng wronit and
phut Man-la up. He did nat know
where the danger lay and hud never
seen me. Indeed. I bad purposely kept
out of his way, for I dreaded ta meet
hlm. Marris's linprtaonmenr made me
.desperate, and then���nnd then-
One  night  when  all  waa 11111  and
dark, carrying a ladder, I went to the
HoHiner   farm,   stood   undei    Miinla's 1
window    and    threw    grovel    lightly 1
against the panes.    Softly she  raised
the sush and looked out.    I ran up tbe'
ladder and wus about lo ask her If she
would go with ine when she said:
"Heavens! What are you doing?  Fa- !
ther drove to  the county sent  today
aud ls expected home every minute!"
As she spoke there was u sound of
wheels cruuchlng ou gravel almost under the window. Marclii. frantic, pulled me In.
"The ladder!" I exclaimed. "lie will
see It."
He did see It, for I beard tbe wagon
stop directly under tbe window, uud
certain mutterings thai told tne I would
be caught In Murclu's room.
Then u certain coolness cnme to me.
from wbere I know oot, and n resolution was taken 10 save Murcla from a
statu. 1
"Oet Into bed." I said, "and pretend
to sleep."
She obeyed me. ond, gathering up a
few trinkets on the bureau, a bracelet, two or three rings and some gold
pins, 1 stuffed them lu my isx-kei. opened the bedroom door and went downstairs. Teu minutes later I wiih caught
with the articles on me and confessed
myself a sneak thief.
1 wu* placed In the wagon that had
Just come from ttie county seat aud ut
once driven there nnd lodged In Jail.
I was u newcomer tn that region, HUd
none of Ihe lloxmer family except Mar-
cla bad ever seen me. Kren bad I
been seen It would not bave muttered.
The local newspaper al tlie end of
the week published 11 short Item us to
the capture of a thief who had boldly
climbed lo tbe window of Miss Hos-
iner's room, stolen some articles from
her bureau without a waking her and,
retreat being cut off by Mr. Hosmer.
who opportunely arrived In time, tried
to meape through the house. He
was ciinght red banded, confessed and
wus lodged In Jail. Tbe item added a
warning to farmers against the practice of employing Itinerant farm hands
during the harvest season lest tbey
harbor crooks. "Mlss Hosmer." the
article said In closing; "on learning of
the dancer she had incurred, became
hysterical hikI. has not yet recovered
from tier fright "
Kor several days Mnrcla gave me no
news of herself, and wben she did she
cn me to me. Then I knew thai she
bad neither the physical strenctb nor
self control lo have come before (tut
at last, manifesting an Interest In fhe
welfare of the man who wns supposed
to have robbed her. she declared tint
she would see hlm, and If lie were
penlteiA she would forgive him and do
Hll she could to save him from tlie con-
sequences of his tbelt She insisted
on coming alone nnd was permitted 10
see me without others Iieing present.
She hegeed tne fo consent to her con
fesslni: the truth, bill I forbade her In
tlie llrst place. It would wreck her ts**.*i\
inline uud I would huve the stn upon
m.v conscience. I persuaded her to let
the matter proceed as It bad begun, encouraging her to hope that some guardian angel would bring all right In
good time.
I wus soon tried, nnd. since I had not
only confessed, hut had been caught
with stolen articles on my person. I
pleaded guilty, nnd the court gave mea
comparatively light sentence. And now
I am In stripes at what Is called bard
labor. Rut my heart Is not heavy
since what I hear has been lustriiinen
tal In saving my love from an obloquy
that would have, resulted from my own
recklessness My suffering Is that she
suffers. She comes to see me. sometime* wtth tbe knowledge af her parents, but oftener when they know
nothing of her visits. Every time she
comes aba bept me to consent to her
mnklnj; a confession, and every time I
persuade ber to wnlt for some otber
means of giving roe my freedom. !
Six years later. I bare dou�� a great
work. For flre yeara I succeeded In
persuading ftlarcla to refrain from Idling tba truth concerning me and by
good behavior reduced my sentence, so
tbat a year ago I etepiied forth a free J
man. A few months before the ei- 1
plratlon of my term Farmer Hosmer
died, bis wife baring died soon after
my Incarceration, and Slarcla liecam*
mUtrem Ot the fortune sbe Inherited
a* aol* belr. After ber fathers death
sbe came openly to the prison to see
me and gave out that as soon as I had
served my term she would marry me
In tbla ahe would not yield, saying
tbat. since I hod become a convict to
shield ber. It was but little fur her tu
har* the nnme of wedding a convict
And ao on the day I regained my
freedom after putting off my strl|>ea
and putting on good clothes sent me
ty Marcla 1 stepped from the prison
door Into a carriage beside my bride
and was driven to a cburcb. where w*
wer* made one.
I   wish tbat for my. wife's sake  I
could remove Ibe stain resting  upon
me without putting a stain upon her.
Tbla cannot be, but 1 feel that Pro*- i
ideuce bn* enabled me to become an |
example  to  otber  convicts,  allowing
bow one may live, maintain bis self
respect and prosper In spit* of bavins;
worn atrliiea.   They do not know that,
I am Innocent of tb* crime for whicb
I was convicted, so my example bai'
Ita full force.    And bar* I not aald
that  In  attempting to steal  Partnst *
Hosmer'a daughter my crlm* w^ftr

And ao, though ahe' and I Hr* under

stud'e'-i. si'ec'al attention will be paid
to all kinds of sport*.
It is exncctic! that ArchbisliOD
Casey, who has recentlv been (tpnolrt-
ed to the bishopric of Vancouver, in
place of Archbishop McNeill, will pay
an early visit to the college soon after
he assumes charge of his new post in
Vancouver. The college has always
had a staunch friend in Archbishop
McNeill and it is thought that the
new incumbent will continue in the
steps of his predecessor and make
periodical visits to New Westminster
and mingle with the faculty and
students.

That the winning of cash prizes

just what should be tried for.
"To the layman a beet is a baet
and this can be said of the average

he will soon learn that there Is a big
difference In beets, at least for ex
