Mayor Lee and Aldermen Close Campaign at Opera House
With Inspiring Appeals to Citizens to Seize Opportunity
to Make Westminster Advance On Sound, Solid, Business
Basis���Waterfront Needs Made Plain.
NEW NIAGARA
UPON FRASER
TAKE HOLD, WESTMINSTER>
International Railway's Plans
Are for Something Similar to Assouan Dam.
An enthusiastic audience of interested ratepayers greeted Ma; or Lee
and the aldermen laat night at the
public meeting in the opera house and
in the mcas.ne of applause which they
accorded the speakers gave ample
���vldeme of their approval of the seven
money by-laws which are being voted
on today,
"Bear In mind," said 'Mayor Lee at
the very outset of his Bpeech, "this
money which you as ratepayers vote
towards the Improvement of our harbor will not lie spent on Lulu island.
lt will be used exclusively In Improving Front street from Tenih stieet
eas ttto water lots 45 or 50, or about
the spot where the Schaake machine
works now stand. This Improvement
will include the building of a civic
wharf fcr the entire length of lots 1
to 50, earth fillin; and revetment, and
widening the street from 75 feet to
1H2 feet, just 117 feet beyond the
preFent water line." >
Thin would provide not only ior the
shipping and commerce attendant ui>-
on the opening of tlie Panama canal,
but it would give facilities for railways and transportation oomoanlcs
which were at this time clamoring at
the city's iloor for admittance.
Is It Fair 1
"Do vou t'tiTO," continued the
mayor, "that nt the present time the
city's revenue from the lessees on her
walcrfrciit Is cn!y $7K2f. ? ThiB Includes all b'.iat portion, lots 1 to 10o.
and figures out at 5 perr cent on J35
per front foot.
"Is th's a business pio;o8lllon 1 Is
lt not fi'ir that tlie IndustileB and
men on the watert-on* should pay a
fair proportion of the. taxes of the ctty
ns well as the ratepayers an 1 householders."
Proceeding along these llneB the
speaker roinied that In man;: cases
the present irsnees of waterfront propeity who hai secured their agreements with the city at a time when
rreat Inducements had to he offered
industries for their establishment,
were actually Mafficking In civic property. Leases on tho river hnd become
so valuable that their holders had soil
them���und tit a vast profit.
In this connection his worship (Rioted several instances to substantiate
his statements wherein the leases held
by Indnstilal operators on Front
street had proven far more valuable
than their manufactories.
Cancel  Leases.
This condition of things, however,
had a remedy, the city had power to
cancel the leases with tho passing of
the bv-law for harbor improvement,
and this rested in the hands of the
ratepayers.
"Do not be afraid," urged the mayor,
"of discouraging industries: manufacturing concerns Who have established
here have made money, are making
money now. and they have no wish to
leave New Westminster. Beyond
Question the council will be able to
make equitable terms with them."
After summarily dealing with two
maps of tl'e proposed harbor Improvements, and describing the extent of
the work which would tako place under the $500 000 expenditure as well
aK the details of the entire harbor
scheme, Ma; or Lee painted a graphic
word picture of the New Westminster
of the future If the citizens too'.: the
initiative on .the morrow and voted
for the scheme.
"It would bo a terilb'e blow to the
city of New Wesimlnster." ml:! the
mayor, "if this measure siiould be defeated, and why should we vote
against It? Have we not the assurance
of the government that they wlll
create a commission, guarantee bonds
and do the dredging In the harbor,
just as they are obliged to do for any
city with a shipping port such as
ours ? Why does not the government
do It you ask ? Our answer ia we
cannot wait. The commerce of the
Panama canal is at hand���prepare."
Flnanchl position.
In answer to a question as to whether or not the city was In a position
to undertake the liability of tho by-!
laws, the mayor declared that no city
on the Paelflc coast wns In as satisfactory a financial condition 83 New
Westminster. I
At the present time the total bond-1
ed Indebtedness was 82,482.000, wbich j
Included    the   by-laws     passed    thia
spring.    Of tiMa amount SSD7 500 was
invested in the city waterworks and

were not costing    the    oltWens    one'
penny for operation  and  which we e
helping materially to reduce the gen- j
eral taxes of ratepayers,   Then Mwre
was    $3112,000    invested    in    schools,!
which left a balance of public debt on
which   ratepayers   must   nav   Interest j
ani sinking fund of Sl.252.500.
"And this is entirely aside from the
value of the

owned waterfront reckoned at the rate
of $300 per front foot���as every one 01
you know is 50 per cent. belo.v ths
actual value���conies to $2,285,400 o:
nearly twice as much as our responsible debt."
How We Compare.
Briefly comparing the financial
status of New Westminster with that
of North Vancouver and several other
small cities and municipalities in British Columbia. Mayor Lee declared
that this city was in a most enviable
position at the present time. The borrowing capacity of lhe city stood at
16,930,000 on a total assessed propeity
value of $17,000,510. North Vancouver
and otlier places had nearly reached
the limit of their borrowing power,
only a few thousands remained for
thein. Witih Westminster it was different, the citizens had scarce tested
the borrowing power of the city be-

Definite announcement as to the
route of the International Railway
will likely be made knewn to the pub-
.ic within the next few weeks. For
several months past su:veyors have
been going over the giound, and once
their report fs made it will only be a
matter of a few weeks before work

This was the announcement given
out by Mr. D. M. Macduff last evening to a Westminster Dally News representative. Mr. Macduff is the consulting engineer of the company, and
has been connected with It for the
past four years. While all the details
are not yet ready for publication,
enough was shown, that this ne*-
railway ib to inrtn one of the greatest electric railway systems on the
western coast of the continent. The

Given Fair Chance.
In this-connection Mayor Les point-1
ed out that  as only three of the by-'
laws represented an expenditure    on I
capital account the consequent effect
on taxation throughout the city would
not be appreciable.
"We stand on xhe threshold of magnificent 1 ros; ei Ity," declared t'.ie
mayor, ln concluding the harbor talk.
"Let ua step Inside���not turn and return to the dark days of which this
clty lies had too many.

Mayor and Franchises.
Brief',- refen lng In turn to several
of the other by-laws. Mayor Lee declared that every one In the list was
worthy of the endorsatlon of every
progressive citizen. The council ps
a unit, felt this and would urge their
eonslde-atlon as In the best Interests
of the city.
Touching i.i the pas by-law, he stated that in the present condition of
things the gas company were throttling Industries which would establish

however, that the firm who were now
manufacturing gas were doing so without a franchise, It wns a pood thlrfg
for the ��� eoplc of New Westminster
that It was eo. {
Scathingly attacking the present
condition oif affairs In this regard,
Mayor L*^ avetred that the gas company was not only charging nn ex-
borbitant r.ite. but was forcing residents lo nny for the Installation of
supply pipes before lt "consented to
supply pau al $2.50 per 1000 cubic

In referring to the hoa,:tal bvlaw

should make a point of voting for the
measure. The necessity or M'lOtS fcr

"There appears to have been some

prominent  hydraulic engineers    both
on this continent and In Europe and
In every case has been approved    as
perfectly feasible.    It  has been commended by    the Dominion engineers,
so that there is nothing to prevent it
being cai ried out.    The nearest    approach  to the  proposed plan Is now
being 'used by the British government
on the great Assouan Dam on the river Nile.    It ls so constructed th:��t at
flood  time tbere Is not  the slightest
fear or danger of    the    construction
work being swept away.   A regulating
device, which can  be lowered at low
water and raised at  flood time is Included ln the scheme proposed."
According to Mr. Macduff, the ma-
Jority of the directors of the International Railway company are prominent men of British Columbia who aie
always on the ground obviating the
delny such as would occur If the headquarters were located In London. The
"-���opl'-al, however, ls mostly subscribed
In London.
More definite announcement as to
ploy of the Hassam Paving company,
who are doing the work.
An enquiry at the hospital last evening levealed the fact that while badly
shaken up by striking the pavement
and1 burned, Heollick was on the road
to recovery, and would be discharged
from the institution within the next
few days.

SWAT THAT FLY !
Now summer's here,
Cast up your eye,
Anl strike to death
The roaming fly;
Wher'er you flnd
Him spare him not,
But Join the clans
That swat, swat, swat.
If twenty times
As big, he'd be
Wiped out as man's
Worst, enemy.
Because he's small,
We let him go
To fill our graves
Before we know.
A million germs
He freely brings
As on our food he
Crawls and sings:
'Tis time we learned
Our foolish lot
And saved our lives
With swat, swat, swat.
Pray say no more
Of man's advance
Until he leaves
���Much less to chance.
No longer with
False ego sigh.
But eet you up
And swat that fly.

Right of Lawyer Struck Off Rolls to
Appear.
Calgary, June 25.���"Has a lawyer,
who has been struck off the rolls a
right to appear before a supreme
court judge?"
This question was asked by a number of lawyers in the courthouse this
morning, when Chat les Farley Harris,
ex-banister of Lethbridge, askel
leave of Mr. Justice Stuart to appear
ln an expropriation case.
Charles F. Harris, who was struck
olT the lolls of the law society some
time ago, then asked Judge Stuart to
be allowed to appear In an Individual
capacity as a friend of the applicant
and also because the ?roceedines were
not in court, before a judge as persona
deslgnata.
"You can at least start," said Mr.
Justice Stuart, "but you do so at your
own risk and I shall have to report
the matter to the law society.

stated, the car.ed-shell work Is practically dying out, but the demand for
bead goods is In excess of the supply,

FORMER "MERCHANT PRINCE"
DIE8 ON POOR HOUSE COT
Tiie people of Western Ontario were
shocked a few days ago on reading ln
a contemporary the announcement
that a former "merchant prince" of
K. . . .had died in the House of Refuge, aged 77 years. In a short biographical sketch it was observed that
he was��a nephew of the late Senator
. . . and about a quarter of a century ago was one of the big dry goods
men of B. . . . That he should
have passed away on a poor house cot
Is a sad but striking Instance of the
irony of fate. It was said that nevei

Montreal, June 25.���"Every farm
that ls put up for sale ln southern Al-
cberta is bought by the Mormons,"
eaid Kev. W. D. Held In the course of
an add: ess today to the committee of
ministers who have been appointed by
the Ministerial Asscclatioif of Montreal to examine the Mormon question. Mr. Held has Just returned from
Alberta, where he was superintendent
of missions for the Presbyterian
church, to take the pulpit of the Stanley Street Church here.
Mr. Keid said he knew the ..Mormons
at close range and they were a great
menace to the civilisation of the present time. There are 20.000 Mormons in southern Alberta. The little
town of Raymond alone sent, out 30
missionaries to Great Britain, and the
Mormons claim that they have 800
missionaries at work ln Great Britain
today. Their converts are coming ln
through the tort of Montreal at the
rate of 100 a week and something
should be done in the matter. It was
announced at the meeting this morning that 93 converts had Just landed

MODERN BETHLEHEM
MAKES MOTHER-OF-PEARL
m 	
The chief industry today of the
town of Bethlehem in Palestine Is the
manufacture of articles of religious
devotion and ornameti's from mother-
of-pearl. The methods and tools use J
are mostly quite primitive in character, as are also the buildings ln
which the workmen carry ou their j
trade. 'ihe principal products arc
carved shells on which religion
scenes r.re depicted, beads and rosti"-
les. The material known as "pearl
waste" from which the t.vo Inter products are ms&o is very largely im] Ol i-
ed from tht United Statss, and tlie
American mnr!*et ulso is the largest
purchaser of ihojo goods.
Large carved shells are soUl mostly
to tourists In Jerusalem and Bethlehem, and tinoe the demand for then,
is not eo good as for ben 'i. and a
higher trade of workmanship is le-
quiied to produce them, this side of
the Industry Ib locing ground to the
manufacture of beads.
A bead workman's outfit ls primitive, consisting or files, borers, and a
simple wooden device for holding (he
Irregularly shape! pieces of pearl
waste. This last is made of a short,
round piece of wood sawed in half
lengthwise, fastened together at one
end, and encircled by a loose lion
ring. The piece of pearl shell is
placed between the loose wooden ends
and the ilng la hammeied tcward tt
until the grip is tight. The workman
then files the part of the shell which
extends to the desired diameter, it is
reversed in the holder, and tlnully a
rounded | free of pei haps one to three
inches in length is secured.
When a number of these pieces
have been prepared they are cut to
bead bI?c. a hole Is bored ln each bead,
and it Is rounded to the desired share.
Then to give the beads a smooth su:-
face they are placed ln special crockery vessels with a little water and are
kept in motion In these vessels, rubbing against the sides and each other
untll they a:e smoother, but not polished, fo give them a gloss and
sheen, they are finally placed In holl-
ing water, to which a weak solution
of nitric or muriatic aci I Is added,
and when n-moved from this they are
passed through a succession of cooling waters. T here are three us'.al

���most of us need care to worry about.

We believe theie are enough progressive people in the dty to ensure
success, but let there be no hanging

that those who object to the schemes

The outstanding feature is of course

After an anthem beaijtifpljy sung hy
tho choir and a solo nicely rendered
by Mrs. Renshaw, Rev. Dr. J. G.
Brown, of Toronto, secretary of Bsi|>-
tlst Foreign Missions for Canada,
save a telling address on "A National
Pollcy for Foreign Missions." Dr.
Brown eloquently reviewed the work
o: the foreign mission board in India
during the past foity years, and in
Bolivia for the pas: twelve ; ear".
This work had been liberally helped
by the Baptists of British Columbia.
The mission among the Telugus of
India had been a great success. There
were now 8000 church membe.s in tbe
mission, while in Bolivia th* wjtk was
one of much promise.' H^ltgtoi ���'
liberty had been proclaimed in Bolivia
and the Baptist missionaries now had
the liberty to preach the gospel without molestation.
Dr. Brown appealed to the people
for tlieir continued sympathy in behalf
of this work In India and Bolivia that
had already succeeded in transforming
the chaiacter of the people among
whom these missions are conducted.
The  address  of   President   Morgan
was a review of the paSjt year's work.
The work of the churches was    exceedingly encouraging, British Columbia compares   very   favorably   in religious advancement with any   other
country in Christendom.   Considering
the Increase in  population, however,
the advance should  be more marked.
"In ten years B. C. population has Increased 100 per cent."Baptist c'lurches
In British Columbia in the same time
have Increased in membership 130 per
cent.    It is only in a.sjplri^of   self-
���sacrlflce  that   this "church   can ' make
Its best    advancement.    This    is    no,
time for Ihe church to become pessimistic. We are facing new experience!! I
and possibilities.   The pew must cultivate a spirit of prayer and consecration."
Tbe speaker deplored the decline In
the rrayer meeting, which once included two-thir's of the lpembershlp.
but not no.v. "As Baptists we have
reason to be proud of our pulpits In
British Columbia. jOne of our needs,
however, is more doctrinal' teaching
and a fientent emi.->asis of the principles for which wp stand. We i">ed
to dispel the idea that the rmin thing
we stand for is bartistn hv immersion
Doctrinal reunions can b" made
popular, sermon p t'-"t r'eil with such
vital doctrines us the atonement and
the resurrection. We stand for absolute loyaltv to the word of Ood as
the only rule of Christian faith and
doctrine." The president sugcesfed
"Inspiration" as the keyword of this
convention.

today.

The appointment of Mr. F. D. Power to be general passenger and freight
agent of the B. C. E. R., with headquarters In this city, Is regarded by
many to indicate that the transportation company ls planning nio.;t extensive work In handling the Increasing traffic op its system throughout

owned by the Royal City Mills, and
located near tho present depot at Carrol street, Vancouver, points to the
fart that the company is planning to
extend Its freight handling operations
to a larger evtent than ever.
Mr. Power on Monday resigned his
position as traffic manager of the
Vancouver Board of Trade, which position he has held with distinction. Hc

of the city's sick was a duty, for at
any time loved ones might be requiring the care cf hospital nurses and
doctors. In the new building which
it was proposed to construct on the
site of the present Institution there
would be found every modern appliance and facility known to modem
medical science. There was already
$30,000 of the peonies' money available for this purpose and the government had promised to donate $70,000
once the $100,000 by-law was endorsed
by the ratepayers.
A  Business  Proposition.
Alderman Lynch tersely aud clearly
pointed out why the city needed a
storehouse. At the present time, he
said, the board of works, the waterworks department, and the electric
lighting supplies were stored ln chaos
at the board of works sheds, at the
Twelfth street ,warehouse or at the
city hall. This entailed a great loss
not only. In materials .which were
spirited away, hut in. loss ��� ef labor
taken up In ;the time of gathering
tools and naterlal when beginning the
morning's work. The people had already voted $0000 for a police station,
and if the $15,000 by-law was can led
the two aums would be combined to
build a storehouse and police station
In one.
Street Work.
Alderman Kellington reviewed the
service accomplished by the board of
works department during the past few
months, nnd Btated that without the
people nf New Westminster wished to
see their stieet Improvements at a
standstill, and a stagnancy In the employment of civic labor Phey should

inr<on the streets were one of the
best advertisements which a clt>
could possibly have���almost as good
as the Progressive association, he
thought, and while he was forced to
admit that fop tho fiist time the street
by-law was second in importance on
the list, having given way to Mayor
Lee's harbor scheme; it was a good
second, and worthy of the ratepayers'
support; v-
With the opening of the Minora
racetrack on Saturday next, the B. ,C.
E. R. Is rushing to completion the
double track between Ktourne and
Vancouver. It Is expected that very
heavy traffic will be carried over this
line daring the time the race meeting
Is in progress, and the officials of the
electric company are striving every
nerve to have the two tracks in work-1
ing order by Monday next, Dominion |
Day.
A special car will leave the local depot at one o'clock daily to Lulu Island,
returning in the evening.
Definite announcement of the opening of the Queensboro extension is expected within the next few days, as
the ballasting is nearing completion.
The rails for the Twelfth street line
have an ived and were unloaded last
evening at different points where the
paving work is Iieing carried out The
steel Is the heaviest used In tramway
construction, being of the same weight
as ihat on Columbia street.
Preparations are being male forjj
handling a record crowd on the company's lines next Monday. Last yea:
a record was created ln the number of
passengers carried on the system or.
the lower mainland, and wltb the new
extensions, and also good weather, ,a
larger crowd than ever is expected.  .<
The Presbyterian churches of Vancouver have chartered special car. fpr
Monday, and will hold a monster i>ic-

Con  Jones  Makes  Startling   Prepara
tions with a View to Hanging
on to Minto Cup.

j Uqpalre athlete, and  M(hom  Mr.  Qtfn
I Jones .ri��ijsd .from oneflLJ. Flejnntg,
I befo^erTne lacrosse season* opened, Is
'.surely %oins to play ln Monday's game.
Ftom. wflSt taii be sarn'eVftd from fcj,e
. cf the  Vancouver papers, Mr. Jones
! on Monday afternoon ordered several
-cf hla groundsmen to go around   the
| playing fleld on Kecreatlotr park and
scoop all the loose pebbles that happened to be lying around for fear his
. high priced star might stub hls toes.
Wouldn't  that   eat   your   hat,   Mr.
Fan ?
The next thing the fans will hear of
j will be a special order given to some
Vancouver hardware store for a suit
���of armour for the French-Canadian to
wear on his reappearance on the Terminal City team.
Together with this startling announcement comes the news that Mr.
Jones and his associates who are run-
' nlng lacrossedom ln Vancouver, have
prepared several blue envelopes which
are to be handed to certain players
wearing the Vancouver uniform ln
the event of their not displaying the
brand of lacrosse that i\lll keep the
Minto cup on the shores of Burrard
Inlet.    Salmon Bellies beware !

Game cf the Season Starves City To-
ig    night���Stars on the Horizon
Only.
What promises to be the lacrosse
same of the season will be pulled off
at Queens park this evening when the
plumbers of Mahoney and Kennedy
will attempt to scalp the British Columbian team.
For the past few day�� a special
messenger boy has lieen employed
���carrying flaunting bravadoes between
the two places that make Clarkson
street a business section, and to
settle the supremacy argument once
and for all, the great game will be
staged this evening.
I Captain Peele. who will lead tho
Fourth Kstate forces, .solemnly de-
h. i lares that a scoop, uns'.rpnsso.l in
the history of paperdem in the ROytU
City; will lie pulled off. while Manager
Kennedy states (although not for publication) that the score sheet of the
plumbers, will resemble the usual bill
sent In to the poor and afflicted householder, so dotted with tlgu;es will
it be.
Manager Gray absolutely refuses to
al'ow Hjghle Giffo'd and Griimny
Spring to participate in the struggle
for fear the afternooii contemporary
might accent a letuiner from certain
Vaneouver fans who wish the Salmon
Bellies to place n weak t*am in the
fleld next Monday afternoon.
The two stars, however, will be allowed, on a special or'er from a self
appointed commission, Aldermen
Lynch and Gray, to act the role of
field cartalns.
The game Is scheduled to start at
Xi: ,10 o'clock sharp.
A Belated Notice.
The baseball team of the People's
Trust company met the Tigers, of
Vancouver, last Saturday afternoon
and administered a crushing defeat.
The twirling of Feedham and thc batting of Feeney were the features of
the game.

Reginas Coming on���Line-up of
Teams.
The second lap ln the Intermediate
Laciosse league will start on Thursday evening when the West Ends
clash with, the Reginas. Thus far this
season, the games have been very
evenly contested and a great linish
should ensue.
The West Enders have lost Sang-
sttfc.ln goal, but are confident with.a
r^ga%iiWJlne-ujrto hang on to fikt
place. They are at present tied for
llrst place W.it.lj the &\Bj>.ertons, while
the Reginas are lh the second division
along with East Burnaby. Their showing against East Burnaby last Thursday night makes the Reginas a team
to be watched and all the players
have been training hard the past few
days for the approaching struggle.
The teams will line-up as follows:
West Ends���Goal, S. Mortison;
point, M. Mortison; cover point, Lougheed; defence, Marglson, McDonald,

London, June 25.���Thii d test match,
England versus Australia, which started today, is delayed owing to rain.
England is at bat, and bo far have
compiled 113 for the loss of one
wicket. Rhodes of Yorkshire, was the
first to go, having batted well for 59.
Hobbs, who opene I the innings with
Rhodes, Is still at the wicket. The
eleventh man chosen by the selection
committee to represent England is J.
W. Hearne of Middlesex, who was
given the preference over G. L. Jes-
sop of Gloucestershire.
TERRIBLE MOOSE TAKE
TO TRAMPLING LEAFS
Awful. The way Manaeer Graham's
he'd of Moose liid a thick coat of
white wash over the Maple Leafs last
evening was a gl^ht to behold. The
Leafs never had a look In, all due to
the prowess of that brother Moose,
Mr. Home, wlio heaved so eTectlvely
that he ha.l the willow wloMers wearing the Leaf uniform rivetted to the
main deck.
But t*o hlt3 were all he allowed
and that's going some in amateur
sport. The way the he:d fell on the
oTering of Mr. Sayce wi3 terrible and

Duties cf tht Claquers.
The claque has never flourished in
English theatres, but is a powerful
institution in France, where a "chiet
de claque" enjoys a recognized status
and makes a comfortable income. It
is a mistake to suppose that the only
duty of claquers is to applaud. A
well organizoJ claque includes soma
members who have cultivated the art
of infectious laughter. These "cha-
touilleurs" attend the lighter forms
of drama an<l lavgh so heartily and
naturally that their neighbors join
in and leave the house convinced
that the play must be a funny one.
Then there are tlie "pleureuses," who
are paid to shaks with sobs at the
right moment during melodramas.���

Oo the Road to

A Manchu and a Chinaman
Neutralize Each

By MAUD C tWETHERBV
Anarchy reigned ln Peking.
All foreigners knew of und soma bod
passed through the dreadful tragedy
of the Boxer uprising about ten years
before. Tben for months the embassies, protected by tbe few troops on
band at the time lbs uprising commented, waited for tbs allied European
armies to come from Tientsin to tbeir
relief. Day ufter day, week after
week passed, wblle the Chinese were
drawing tbe line ever closer sbout tbe
embassies, and those belonging to the
legations were expecting that tbs
bloodthirsty Mongolians would bresk
down the barricades and murder tbem.
It looked now as lf tbls former experience were to be repeated. Nevertheless some provision against sucb a
repetition had been made. Before tbe
allies bad withdrawn after tbe Boxer
uprising It had been stipulated that
the route between Pekin- and Tientsin
on tbe 1'eilow sea should be kept open
and a sufficient force of European
troops maintained at tbe latter place
to be transported In case of danger to
the capital.
During this last revolution the American minister, sitting is his offlce ln
Peking, came to the decision to wait
no longer, but summon troops from
Tientsin. Tapping a bell, an attendant
entered.
"Tell Mr. Klnworthy that I wish to
see blm at once," said tbe minister.
Wh'le the attendant was executing
tbo order the minister arose from his
desk and walked back and forth on the
iloor witb a troubled countenance. He

the persons belonging to the embassy,
including a number of women and

lety becume terror. The yells, the
shrieks, the Bring In the streets could
be heard, und every new ��oiind caused
those within tbe Inclosure to give uu

"Mr. Klnworthy." said the minister.
vlieu that gentlemau entered. "1 wish
jou to go to Tientsin and order lor-
ward ail the American troops you tind
I here-that is, If you can get through.
I fear we have delayed sending for us-
slsiiiiue too long und that any messenger we dispatch to Tientsin will he
waylaid und murdered. Vou must
therefore know that you go on a dau-
gerous mission."
"I thoroughly understand that."
"I have chosen you for the work
rather tbnn any of tbe soldiers or sailors here because 1 think you Have Ingenuity to meet auy attempts to get
llie belter of you. whereas a military
uimi would feel it hls duty to Bght
openly rind single handed."
"I do not consider myself a match
In duplicity with n Chinaman, but 1
will do my hest."
"Vnu have u great advantage In
speaking the language. My plan for
yon Is to travel ns nny other foreign
I'itlwn. This movement has not yet
tinned against m foreigners, hut there
are those among the Chinese who are

It Is my opinion that any one leaving
this embassy will be watched and followed.

If you ever do return. You must therefore be on your guard every moment.
This Is the order for the commanding
offlpM of the American troops to come
nt once to our relief nnd protection."
"I shall do m.v best to deliver it."
snid the young man and withdrew.
within half on hour after this Interview I'aul lilnwortitf strolled out ol
tbe legation grounds swinging t\ cone
and, after walking about tbe cltyi
went toward tbe road leading to Tientsin. Believing tbst tbe safest course
for him was to walk to a stutlon below the city and there take a train,
be strolled along as tbougb out for a
constitutional walk. A couple of |
hours later be stopped at a railway

ed tbe salute wltb civility, as tbe most j
politic  course to pursue.    Tbe  man j
entered upon tbe subject of tbe revolu- \
tlon  and.   being  a   Mancbu,  showed j
plalbly tbat bis sympathies were not |
with the new regime.   Klnworthy did j
wbat be could to steer clear of any
opinion  wbutever on Chinese affairs.
Tbe man Insisted on keeping up the
conversation long after Klnworthy bad
ceased to make any response, tbougb
bs gave tbe Manchu his fnjl attention.
Presently another native of the country came Into the room and, seeing
Klnworthy, suluted blm by name, asserting that  he bud seen bim quite
often tn Peking.   The Mancbu seemed
to regard tbls ueweouier with disfavor,
which Klnworthy accounted for on the
ground  that   the  latter was Chinese.
But neither Chinaman seemed Inclined to give way to (he other In tbe matter   of   cultivating   Klnworthy's   acquaintance.   Tbey discussed tbe revolution In all Its aspects, and since tbey
were  on   opposite   sides  their  arguments grew   heated.    Tbe China man
was In favor of a republic, while the
Mancbu inupported tbe empire.
Klnworthy feured tbey would come
to blows, witb the result of attrnctlng
attention to himself. What be most
wished for wns to travel as Inconspicuously as possible. Be therefore
conceived the Idea of proposing some
refreshment Both men agreed witb
alacrity, and Klnworthy ordered a
small bottle of wine tbat bud beeu imported from France. A waiter brought
It in on a tray wltb three glasses.
���Now, Klnworthy bad spent ten years
iu China and uever bad anything to do
with a Chinaman without watching
Lis slightest movement Klnworthy
poured out the wine, and euch man
was about to tuke up bis glass when
the Muochu. Iienriug a noise outside,
ran to the window. Klnworthy turned
bis glance in that direction, but kept
nn eye on the Cblnumau. A quick
movement of the wrist convinced the
diplomat that tbe latter bad flirted
something into twu of the glasses. Tbe
.Manchu. not Uaviug discovered nuy-
llilug of importance outside, returned
to tiio others. All three drank their
wine, but Klnworthy held bis In hN I
throat and presently, taking out bis |
handkerchief lo wipe hts mouth, got I
rid of It In tbe linen. I
The Mancbu  now  produced  a eign- |
rette case and absentmlndedly put one
hi his mouth, tben, apologizing, offered j
the  case   to  the  others.    Klnworthy !
look one, but instead of lighting lt laid
It on tbe table, saying tbnt  he never
���tnoked-a rather risky statement since
he had cigars In bis pocket at the time
Tbe Chinaman aud tbe Mancbu both
puffed lustily.
From the moment the wine and clga
r.'ttes were Introduced a drowsiness
appeared io be creeping over Klnworthy's two self constituted friends. Tlie
Maiuliu defended tbe monarchy, and
lbe Chlmtmnn declared a republic was
the right form of government for China
us It was for America, picturing the
l reut progress lu store for his country
that had been achieved by the wonderful lund lying in tbe far west. But the
mol-e tbe two talked tbe thicker grew
their tongues. Finally lbe Manchu
leaned buck in his chair and snored.

Lord Hyde, only son and heir ol
the Farl cf Clarendon, his wife, and
their two children, the Hon. George
Villiers, six, and the Hon. Joan Vil-
lier?^ three, and Lord Somers, Lady
Hyde's brother, have arived in Can-
au.. where tliey will take up life on a
farm.
On their arrival Lord Hyde talked
freely of the family's plans.
"It's out of old England and back

S. J. Clarke in Montreal recently,
"when a man could travel from the

of the country were either Indians
or half-breeds.

to the present system of taxation
said Lord Hyde. "Canada is very
strict nbout immigrants, and sends
back all ne'er-do-wells, so in time, if
everybody who was fit emigrated from
England only the unfit would be left
ther��.
"I'm a tariff reformer. I believe
that Joseph Chamberlain years ago
advocated the only practicable thing
for ths real Englishman, whom every.
body wants in the country."
Wlien asked to tell about the farm,
h? replied:
"My brother-in-law, Lord Somers
of Herjfordshire. bought the farm
last fall, and is there now. There is
no house on it, but I have rented an
empty house in Pickering, and we
shall have to build our farm house.
"No, we are not going in for any
especi.-l err.i. We shall raise fruit,
wheat, and garden truck. When we
have developed into real farmers it is
likely we shall buy another farm."
"But was the system of taxation
the thing t'.iat caused you to leave
England?" was asked.
"No; there was another reason.
One's money can be put out at larger
interest in Canada than in England.
Besides, we think it will be healthy
for the children to have the outdoor
life that will be their's on the farm.
"My son "ill go back to school in
the winter, and we too shall return
to London when the winter comes
on."
While Lord Hyde was discussing
h'.i plans Lady Hyde stood between
the children. With a hand on either
of the children, she suddenly said .
"We are goin; to teach our children
to forgt the titles of aristocracy and
buckle down  to  hnrd  work."

With the exception of antelope and

.peciw ol big fame that exists on
;hc continent; e\en the rarest -t them
being found in fair quantities* In

<fii)o birds of various species, some
native ami others acclimatized, that
,i misli sport; wb4'�� the water* at-
ford the finest trout and salmon fish-
ing in tlie world. It is probable that
there are more moose to the square
mile in the Cana lian Rockies than
iii anv other part of the continent,
and everv year tlieir numbers seem
to increase. So lar, the country has
never been hunted except by a few
prospectors. Whether tin horns attain the large siae of the Cassier
moose has yet to be determined, but
some very fine heads have been seen.
In this district, cariboo are very
plentiful on the higher plateau, and
in places both grizzly and black bear
are numerous.
A Profitable Deal.
Twenty years ago Dr. Coleridge of
Ingersoll gave a gold wptch, an inexpensive one at that, tor 1,600 feet
of land on 8oudan avenue. Toronto.
The owner got tired carrying them
and was quits willing to take $25 Ior
the bunch, but as the doctor's watch
was just what he wanted, the doctor
cot the lots.
Recently Dr. Coleridge sold the property for $11 a foot, or nearly $18,000.
AnJ the man who bought them, a
local operator, has had a half dozen
chances '.o sell tbem again at $15 a
foot.
"I remember that the special diversion planned for the marquis was a
round-up. Up at the Cochrane ranch,
then the biggest in the country, they
gathered cowboys, from all the neighboring ranches. The piece de resistance was an exhibition of broncho
busting and lariat work on wild tattle.
The marquis had driven across country from Battleford to Fort Calgary.
He had a train of 150 teams and a
detachment of mounted police as escort. We had information of his approach months in advance.
"I remember that his advance itinerary included a trip from Fort Calgary, up the Bow, to the Blackfoot
Indian reserve. We set about to prepare for this journey, and built a
number of boats to take the party up
the river. The marquis on his arrival
decided to alter the program, and his
party traveled overland through Montana  instead.
"I remember, even further back
than that. In 1877, I built the first log
shack at Pinto Horse Butte, 52 miles
this side of Woo J Mountain. We built
the camp for the purpose of watching
the Sioux camp and Sitting Bull and
his followers after the Custer massacre. The main camp of the Sioux
numbered in the neighborhood of 10,-
000 men.
"I remember another point that
takes issue with history. Sittine Bull
has been, and frequently is, mentioned as the head chief of the Sioux.
Among the Indians he was no chief,
simply head soldier. In tlmt Sioux
camp the chief's council numbered
400 men. and Sitting Bull could not
atteml the sessions except on invitation.
"I   remember   that   we   left   Pinto
Horse Butte in the fall ot '77 for Fort
Walsh, -where I stayed a tew months
beiore     being    transferred   to    Wood
Mountain.   AfteT a year I went back
to Fort Walsh,  and in the  sprint:  ot
'79 I went to Fort McLeod.    At Fort
McLeod I  stayed until the srring ol
'81, when I left with Corpl. Knowlee
for Fort Calgary to take charge of the
stores  there.
"I remember that during the following year I left the force to enter
business in Calvary for myself. I have
lived in Alberta for thirty-six years,
and from the oldest to the youngest
my family is composed of genuine
home-grown Albertans.
k "I remember ��� Oh. but that's
enough." said the commission?r. ss

Squirrels as Tree   Planters.
Contrary to common belief, the gray
squirrels of Canada do not lay up
their winter store,of nuts in mass,
but bury each one separate and apart
fr..m the rest, and for this reason
they are nature's most important
chestnut, hickory, and wa'.'nut tree
planters. The nuts are hidden in the
ground, often at a considerable distance from one another, and either
by inntlnct or a .remarkable memory
tho squirrels will penetrate through
several feet of snow when iu want vl
tood and seldoir, if ever, fail to find
the hidden treasures.
They do not need or use the one-
tenth part of the provender they have
hidden away in the ground, and what
they do not corjsume germinates tin
next spring, and in this way we get
our uniform nut-tree forests, whicli
would otherwise grow in clusters under the parent tree where the nut*
have  fallen.
In their burying operations a uir-
re'.s often cover a large area of
ground, seeking the most favorable
spots for hiding therr fori; this accounts fo/ trees springing up in the
most diverse places.
Convenience of Dialect.
During his recent visit to Canada,
Rev. R. J. Campbell, of the City Temple, London, is said to have related
a few amusing little stories, for he is
an accomplished raconteur. One ol
his best concerned the eccentricities
of the English accent.
"Our worst accent," he said, "Is
the Cockney one���the one that converts such a phrase as 'make haste'
into 'mike iste,' and so on.
"I once employed two maids. One
came from Devon, the other was a
Cockney. Both bore the name of
Catherine, but that did not mean
confusion in the household when either one was wanted. I just called thc
Devon girl 'Kate' and the Cockney
'Kite,' and they always knew whicn
1 was calling."
Valuable Lots.
An incrense of over 400 per cent,
a yenr for 24 years on the original
amount paid, or a total proQt of 10,-
000 per cent., for Regina lots, is a

bals, one of the early settlers of that

There Is nothing new about the Idea of
using Sage for restoring the color of the
hair. Our grandmothers kept their hair
dark, glossy and abundant by the use of
a simple "Sage Tea." Whenever their
hair fell out or took on a dull, faded or
streaked appearance, thev made a brew
of Sage leaves, and applied It to their
hair with wonderfully beneficial effect
Nowadays we don't have to resort to
the old-time tiresome method of gathering the herbs and making the tea. This
is done by skillful chemists better than
we could do it ourselves; and all we
havo to do is to call for tiie ready-made
product Wyeth's Sago and Sulphur
Hair Remedy,  containing Sage in the
Sroper strength, with the addition of
ulphur, another old-time scalp remedy.
This preparation gives youthful color
and beauty to the hair, and ia one of
the best remedies you can use for dandruff, dry, feverish, itching scalp, and j (dally except. Sunday). 17:SO
