Allen just missed the net by

T. Gifford electrified the crowd b)
picking off a certain goal from thi
stick of Lalonde. A run up the field
and C. Spring tried a long shot. Agaii
they attacked and Wintemute hi:
Hess with the rubber. G. Spring re
covered It ar.d, passing to Wlnte
nute the latter beat Hess with <
high one.
Kavanaugh warned Ion for bh
rough checking. Wintemute tried tc
go through, but was bowled over.
Griffith got sent off for rough worl1
on G. Spring, and while he warmed
the bench the Vancouver home rained
.���hot after shot at the citadel of Clark
���vho met them at all angles. A slight
lull allowed Westminster to make a
skirmish and G. Spring had hard luck
in hitting Hess with the ball.
Play was exceedingly fast at this
���stage, but after a time the Vancouvers let up and amid the jeers of tbe
crowd exhibited a display of ragging.
Clark got bit on the kne with the ball
and play was Btopped to allow him to
recover.
Third Quarter.
Westminster got the ball and on a
pass from G. Rennie, McCarty waded
through two men only to shoot over
the bar. The ball came back however, and Big Bill Turnbull slammed
a beauty past Hess.

the chances of Vancouver retaining
the Minto Cup this season by defeating them 5-4 on Recreation Park Saturday afternoon.

Id fan of the Vancouver team had tc
take off his hat on Saturday aftei
noon and acknowledge that the boyi
from the Fraser simply cannot b'
downed when they only start' going
It took them'a long while to start
however, and optimism among West
minster BDectators was at low ebb a'
the commencement of the fourth
, quarter with Vancouver holding down
the long end of a 4-2 score.
Bight minutes of play In the last
period saw Len Trunbull beat Hess
with a beauty. Punk Wintemute followed with another in 20 seconds and
with about five minutes to play, Len
Trunbull duplicated his trick by running around two of his checks and
sending the rubber slowly past Hess.
Needless to state excitement ran high
and while the crowd would doubtless
have liked to see the contest go on
extra time, the feat of Turnbull re-
Ing to him from the supporters of
ing to him from the supoprters of
both   teams.
The game was marred by two unfortunate occurrences, once when
Hughie Gifford cut down Lalonde,
and the other when Ion made a vicious swipe at the Westminster goal
umpire, Ben Robb, breaking the. rim
of h's hat and at the same time using filthy language. Lalonde was In
the act of scoring when laid low by
the younger Gifford, who was promptly sent off fo* a twenty-minute rest.
It was, a most unwarranted assault In
the eyes of the fans, but It later developed that Gifford's body was a
mass of bruises caused by Lalonde

the same snot where I.alonde cut
down w. Gifford two weeks ago when
the ball was In play yards away. The
French-Canadian at that time got a
ten-minute rest for his rough stuff.
Contrary to erpectat'.ons. Manager
Grav made a shift in the Iine-un. Me-
Carty going on the home, George
Rennle moving up to centre. Pat Feeney being dropped. This was the
first time Ihat McCarty had appeared
in a regular game and his work on
Saturday was entirely up to exrtee-
tations. Me has a lot of speed, plen

Mac Is a diferent playor than when /
he ftrst came west In the spring, and
be It said tbat only one practice bas
he missed throughout tbe season. On
several occasions he made good attempts to bore In and It was only by
heavy body checking that he was
kept from scoring.
Manager Gray when seen after the
game expressed himself well pleased
with his work and said that his rea
eon for making the chanjfe was ��'
that MoCarty would be able to conn'
himself In among the winners of the
Minto Cup.
Rev. J. S. Henderson, pastor of St.
Andrew's Presbyterian church, yester
day confirmed the report that be had
received a call from tbe congregation of the Presbyteriau church at
Kamloops.
As to  his  intentious  with  regard
to the offer made him  tbe popular
local  minister declared tbat  lt  wa.-.
not a matter that could  be decided
offhand.   "In the first place", be said
'tbe matter will have to be considered  by  the   Kamloops    Presbytery
���vhich meets at Pentictru on August
-S. and lf the offer mac 3 to me by
.he Kamloops church me-.ts with tha
body's approval, a call  .,111 be issued
by It.   Before the time comes for mc
to give my decision,    however,    th(
.natter will  go  before  the Westmlnater Presbytery, which  body will al
so  have  to  pass  its opinion  on the
matter.''
The inducement offered the Rev
Mr. Henderson ls a handsome one
and consists of a salary of $2,200 per
annum wtth a month's vacation each
year. ,
It he should feel disposed to accept
the call the loss to the community
will be a great one, as during hit-
ten year's stay here Mr. Henderson
'ias done a most admirable work ancl
has made a host of friends, not only
in the city, but throughout the entire
lower mainland. That he has received a call from the up country city
Is evidence of the eminent position
he holds ln thc minds of the church

few minutea of slow playing and
Clark saved an almost certain goal
from Allen. Westminster got th��>
ball but soon lost it by a faulty pass
in midfleld and on the rue up. Lalonde sent through one which no
goalkeeper on earth could have

Bill Turnbull appeared in the limelight and took a long shot.    Ion took
a crack at the big fellow, cutting his
head,   the   unruly   member     of   the

The Vancouvers again resorted to
a ragging display, but soon cut It out
when the jeers of the crowd were
fcesrd. T. Rennie featured In throwing the ball when lying prone on the
ground. Another Vancouver attack

But for the fact that no Wharfage

At the present time the contractors

On   the   other   hand,   metropolitan

with bored looks and murmur, "Tro<
out your little company.   I dare yoi
to make me sit up and take notice.'
The very pleased audience tbat at
tended "Loustana Lou" at the opera
house on Saturday night vouched for
the truth of this by a tribute of un
affected      appreciation,    whicb     al'
things being consld:red, was not en
tlrely without cause.
Like all musical comedies, thf
structural parts of "Lousiana Lou'
are wholly translucent. About a
four cornered romance seme very
clever dances and some silly but
amusing songs have been woven with
oonsumate skill while the bright sud
den transition from situations emo
tional to scenes of laughter and son?
is to say the least fascinating.
The fragile plot is laid in New Or
leans, the birthplace of that "hipnot
Izlng rag." I^uisa. the foundling
comes horn? from Paris to her foster-
father Lldoffskl in" expectation of
marrying Jack Konkarney ln accord
ance with the deep laid plans made
by her guardian and Jack's parent'
when they were children. While Lor
was in Paris, however, she met and
loved one Nixon Holme, a partne:
ln the firm of Konkarney and Holms
of which Jack's father is the senior
member. Jack has also disregarded
the wishes of his dad and formed an
attachment tor Delia Fair, a sister
of his step-mother.
The Duke De Lune, an imposte:
who followed Leu from Paris becausr
he discovered that she was an heiress to title ar.d estates in France
is unmask<.d by Jennie Wimp, Lou's
chaperon, who knew him as Alnhon
se, a waiter in the cafe Bordellaise.
Alphonse becomes a servant in the
Konkarney household, and conspires
with Lansing Bright, a nadventurer
to secure Iron from her guardian by
the story that Bright Is her father.
Alphonse loses his heart to Jennie
Wimp, however, and he foils the
"vlllun" Bright, Informing Ixiu 6T her
inheritance, early In the second act.
Discovering Lou crying bitterly,
LtdoffsKi learns of her affection for
Nixon Holme, and, after considerable
argnmOT.t the elder Konkarney Is
brought to see that the young people must marry at the dictates of
their hearts. Jack and Delia, who
have already paid a visit to tbe Justice of the Peace, heartily
with  this  view  of  things.---'
Miss Bessie DeV'oie as "Lou" In the
leading role, has a girlish charm of
expression more often seen off the
stage, and her confidence in he* bea-
ty to carry the part through on me*

that she wears only one costume
throughout tbe entire play.
Mlsa Sophie Tucker, "Jeimfeil

throaty alto of no particular Duality
but of tremendous vOhmre, snrtl fhe

Despite the fact that the day wa.
an ideal ��� one in e\ ery respect, t
small crowd turned out to hear tht
band concert at v^jeens park yester
day afternoon. An excellent program
was rendered by the Westminstei
city band, but something was not a
it Bhould be, for by tbe time the cou
jert had ended at a o'clrck, then,
was only a mere strassling handful
of tlie crowd left.
"These  concerts shc-.:d    sta-t    at j
three o'clock" said one listener while- j
commenting upon the stead-ly d~,k.
ing crowd near the end of the cos
cert.     "Most  of   the   people   around
VVestminbter have  supper  about  six
o'clock   on   Sunday   which   makes   It
necessary for them    t<)    return    for
home before the concert is balf over
This ls especially the case with the
housewives who have to prepare their,,
husband's and family's suppers."
The musical offering was well up
to the usual standard of the local
bandsmen, and the excellent manner
with which every selection was dispensed reflects great credit on the
leader,  Mr.  J.  W.  Rushton.
The program ran thus: Grand
March Tannhauser, Wagner; Andante, Bach; Overture Raymond, Thomas; Plantation songs, Soloman; Pilgrims' Chorus, Wagner; In the Sbad-

ROUND THE MESS TABLE
BY  THE   MARTIAN.
The Sixth Regiment (Duke of Connaught's Own Rifles), the allied Regiment in Canada of the famou3 Rifle
Erigade (the Prince Consort's Own)
of the Imperial Army, must be feeling very proud of the place, or raihtr
places (there are eleven), which thev
occupy on the British Columbian
team, which liiajepresent the Prov
Inse at the meeting of the Dominion
Rifle Association at Ottawa. The
Sixth has always had a splendid reputation for rifle shooting, and that it
ia well deserved, the number of trophies which have found a resting
place in the mess roomB and armouries of the yancouver Drill Hall will
abundantly 'testify.
The team is composed cf Ueut.-
Col. Duff-Stuart, Lieutenants Hunte'
Latta and Warden, Quartermaster
Sergeant Kennedy, Color Sergeant
Parron, Staff Sergeants Welford, You-
hill and Hunt, Sergeant Latta and
Corporal Lamond, .all of the Sixth
D- C. O. R., Lleutenat Blair and Ser
geant Drummer Pawsey of the 72nd
Highlanders, Pawsey being also an
old Slnh Regiment man, and Company Sergeant Major Caven, Sergeant Carr and Gunner Culross. of
the Fifth Regiment Royal Canadian
Garrison Artillery of Victoria. It
wilt -e seen that Vancouver supplies
practically the whole team with the
exception of three from the canltal.
New Westminster men are unfortunately conspicuous only by their absence.
I am n%t altogether In accori with
the encouragement of pot-hunting
marksmanship In the mllltla. bit
whilst that is the only manner in
which they are allowed to study the
use of the rifle by the militia council
It would be hardly fair to criticize its
members for adopting the only means
avallahle of improving their shooting.
Bisley, as a member of the Canadian team, seems to be the Mecca of
all good militiamen, and the study of
musketry (quite a different thing to
rifle shooting cf Individual marks
manship altogether) seem3 to be entirely neglected. The conditions
which obtain in modern warfare do
not demand such inordinate skill on
the part of the Individual in the
handling of his rifle as might be supposed. Whilst the presence in every
company of a certain number of
marksmen Is certainly to be desired,
the fact must be horne in mind that
it Is the collective fire of the whole
company as a fire unit that Is the
factor which decides the day. It is
very seldom nowadays, that a target
ci any  sort will    be presented,    on
whicli  to develope a volume or  fire.
What is far more likely is that a certain  piece  of ground    of    so  much
frontase and so much depth will be
given to the unit to beat, and  that
being so, it is altogether likely that
the second class shot will prove   as
useful  as  his    comrade    who    is a
marksman.    In fact the beaten zone
produced by a unit of the latter specification   will   naturally    be    smaller
than that cf an equal number cf the
former, and superiority of fire la to
be attained  more by  rapidity    combined with a a certain amount of accuracy, than by a careful study    of
windage, mirage and other cond tions.
To  my   mind   the  study    of  tactics
should be  given greater prominence
than that of the marksmanship of the
individual,   but  untll  the  authorities
at Bisley realize that rifle shooting Is
bred of national defence and is   not
really to be considered    as a mere
matter of skill on the part of the sol
dler, and modify or alter their competitions accordingly, the present more
or  less   erroneous  state  of    affairs
will  continue to  exist.
According   to    reports    the   104th
Regment   are   busily   recruiting    in
order that they may be able to turn
out a guard of hpnour for His Royal
Highness the Governor-General, when |
he visits the city next month.    It If
to be earnestly hoped that they will
make a showing that will be a credit
to the Royal City, and it is the boun-1
den duty of every one to help in any
way  that  lies in  his  or  her power.
Employers by giving the'r employees
permission  and    encouragement    tc
join, parents by pointing out   to their
offspring  that  the  future safety    cf
our Dominion lies In her readiness to
defend her rights by means of    the
strong arms and stout hearts of her
sons   and the gentle sex by demanding that thetr men folk shall fulfill
Nature's law and fit themselves    to
fight for the safety rf those depend
ent on  them.    By    showing a  unit
complete in the authorized establishment.   New   Westminster  will   prove
that she is ready to take her share
of the burden of arms, a matter on
acount of which much adverse criticism ha3 been levelled at us of late
This criticism remains to be refuted
and there Is no better ocicsion than
that of the Duke of Connaught's visit
So let us all  take heed and ensure
that we can welcome    him    with a
regiment   which,  lf  not   trained    ln
the highest sense,  is  at  least  com
plete  iu   material,  which   Is  a  good
beginning. *

��� TRADES AND LABOR ���

��� ���������������������������������������������
Tha officers of the Trades and
Labor Council and tho different committees appointed, have reason to be
proud cf tho success that attended
the smoker held last Friday evening,
lt demonstrated that when the occasion demands support, such as the
sending of Delegate Cameron to
Guelph, Ont., to attend the annual
convention of the Trades and Labor
Congress of Canada, the labor men
of this city and district stand shoulder to shoulder.
As heretofore reported, there was
something doing every minute during
the entertainment aud Chairman
Storev had no opoprtunlty of taking
a fit of the blues. Not forgetting the
musical part of Uie programme, the
speeches made by Delegate Alderman Dodd and by Secretary Grant
furnished much food for reflection.
T}ie address by the labor representative on the city council was a resume of the work done by the T. and
L. Council during Its four years of j
life In New Westminster. The labor
men of the city had gained tlte confidence of the people and the
time haB come when the people sit up
and take notice If the council is for
or against a proposition.
It Is a feature wUh the local council, stated Delegate Dodd, that there
are five shops in the city which have
absolutely closed shops. There ls
work ahead for all and labor men
must pull together.
The speech made by Mr. B. D.
Grant, secretary of the council, was
an eloquent effort towards the cause
of the working man. "I believe in
the universal working card and I am
not a member of the I. W. W. either."
stated the socrntarj*. In his opinion
the days wero fast drawing to a close
when a craft laborer or crnft union
could work to advantage under existing conditions. Tho members cf the
different unions were fast losing
their distinction of belonging to an
exclusive craft on acount of the fact
that modern machinery and progress
wero forcing ths skilled laborers to
the wall, ,t.      .
He did not advocate opposition to
the Introduction of machinery. He
claimed that machinery made for the
progress of the world and could not
bo stopped hv the puny effort; of the
workers. The union men of todav
must meet modern conditions with
modern methods.
Whst he advocated was the ahan-
��� donment of craft unionism and a gen-
eral working card Issued to a man
wbo would be allowed to work at any
trade at which his employer thought
blm capable.
Nelson/' Aug. lV.-At the Trades
and Labof Council meeting It w��b decided to have. If possible, a parade
and celebration In the olty on Labor.
Day        i I
In previous years. Nelson has let,
the flrat Monday ln September pass
bv without a festivity of any kind bv
the working man, wlhle Roland.
Trail and Proctor have all hid their
celebrations.
It was the opinion of many that
Nelson should, lf possible, have a
celebration, and a good one at that.
Several suggestions were made to
have It ��t Balfour or Proctor, but lt
wa3 finally  decided  to have  a committee  look Into all matters  regard
'ng  the cost to various  places and j
the arrangements and to have the delegates of the  various unions  repor' |
progress at a special  meeting  to  be I
held on Tuesday next at 8 o'clock.
The matter of sending a represen
tatlvi�� to the convention of the Trajfts
and Labor Congress at Guelph was
further discussed and It was decided
to let Nelsou be unrepresented at thc
convention.

Railway Company Refuses to Put On
Harvest Trains.
Vancouver, Aug. 18.���That British
Columbia offers plenty of wor.t for
every man who wants to wcrk. and
that harvest rates from this province
to the pralrle would result only In vacation seekers going east, without
lessening the number of Idle men ln
this city, was the expressed belief
of C. P. R. officials yesterday at 1
conference with Mayor Findlay ard
Messrs. Thomas Angus and John McKenzie. PreBcnt at the conference
were Mr. F. W. Peters, general superintendent of the British Columbia
Division of the railroad, and Mr. H.
W. Brodie. general passenger agent
of the company.
Mayor Findlay, at the end of the
conference, declined to make any
statement. British Columbia. It wag
pointed out by the railway men needs
thousands of laborers, particularly or
the new railway construction work
on the Canadian Northern. In the
Okanagan district, the Kettle Valley
line on the Grand Trunk.
BURNABY'S GROWTH   IS
UNIFORMLY   EXCELLENT
Edmonds, Burnaby, Aug. 18.���During the past week there has been con
slderable activity In building opera
tlons throughout the municipality tc
be ready for the winter. Many property owners who have their lots
cleared are now anxious to have their
homes constructed as soon as possible. The consequence Is that a great
deal of building has ben going on
and tn all parts of the large munlcl
pallty homes are being rapidly cou
strncted.
The district around Edmonds 1b
one cf the moat prolific In this re
spect. Outside of tho little townsh'r
there are many houses being bull*.
In an area which but a short timi
a��o, was covered with standing tlm'
hr*r. In the township Itself, a steady
development Is noticeable, and this
as has been stated before, ls fast becoming a business centre, for sc
many people are making their home?
in the vicinity that business people
find that an excellent trade can be es
tabllshed. There are now several
restaurants In Edmonds, where but s
shcrt time ago there were none near?
er than Ne* Westminster.
Another part of Burnabv which Is
tnnklng considerable progress, ls that
district around Highland Park. The
proposed cut-off there is thought to
make an Important Junction, and the
pniiHpiuence Ib that many pedple are
getting ready to take advantage of
the future. Highland Park Is coming well to the front, and seems likely to eollpse some of the older portions of the municipality when the
cut-off Is made, <
Jubilee, whloh ls within easy reach
'Is dinner ready, Mary?"
"Yes, Madcm���it is ready, and, I think, a great
success."
"Your cooking is improving."
"Well perhaps it is, and 1 hope so, but really Mrs.
Housewife, I think our new Gurney-Oxford is partly
responsible for the success I hatfe had lately. I was
never able to cook roasts and fowl so well on our old
stove, and as for bread and biscuits, I used to tremble
when I went to take them from the oven���they were
so often soggy and heavy.   Now they are always
light and beautifully brown, and, if I do say it myself,
something to be proud of."
"That's true, Mary, my husband has said almost the
same thing. I'm awfully glad you approve of my
choice of a Gurney-Oxford. He approves because
of the saving in coal since we got it, also Wimse of
the better meals he 13 getting."
" Indeed he's right Madam���and it requires so little
attention."
"That's fine. Will you serve dinner in a few
minutes please."

of the cut-off, Ib also coming well to
the front, and several new structures
are ln course of erection there. These
are chiefly of a residential character,
hut all tend to show the growth and
development which is taking p'lace in
this district.
Away along the line from there
to Central Park the same activity is
noticeable. The laying of the water
���na'ns in the municipality is sa'd to
be having a great effect In settlement
of the area, for many people have
been holding back from building on
their lots In this neighborhood until
tlie water supply has been provided.
The second unit of the system is exported to be installed shortly, and
when this has been laid there should
not be any trouble ln the munlclnallty
so far as water is concernea. ' >
.Tub'lee. McKav and West P"��nby
are all participating in this development. One Important fnrtor which
should be taken Into consideration In
this connection, is that most ot the
settlers are married people and have,
apparently, come to stay,'as is exem-
pl'fied by the school attendance,
which ahowB an ever Increasing num
her of pupils. The school trustees
are sorely tried to find accommodation for the growing number of children, and as a result the existing
schools have had to be enlarged and
new ones built.

A   t*yfl*tffi*f'vPROBl.EfA.
At a receluijnieeting of the Board
of Trade, stawmefits were made
which go to prove that the city li
facing a very serious problem in tlw
lack of BuUefe^ t��i��jumibhoea for
those who Tfrlr treSfRous of setting
up in business here.t ^lready, we are
told, several would-be merchants of
Westminster have had to go elsewhere. 	
The problem .fit.,.,expediting the
opening up' of a .Virther b-.is)ies.\
.area ��bolft8"WWH88 at onca, if
further wastage "of men and mone>
to this city "Is'To'Iie'"'avoided. Some
weeks ago the matter v.as brought
.to the front by those* ��� energetic citizens comprising the executive of tht
Progressive association, and now, the
board cf trade, which meets but once
a month in comparison to the week
Iy meetings cf the former body, has
appointed a confnittee to urge upon
the city council t'.i^ u6red for immediate  action.
The details cf  the  scheme do not
concern  us,   saving    the    saggeatloi
that  Library   Square  be  scld  in  IOC
foot lots.    This would be sheer van
dalism.    Everjtood^-    knows   that Li
tirary  Square  i3 some  distance from
Tipperary park, that'it is nearer the
present level where a not inconsiderable portion bf "tfife population dwells,
that it is used by'the public bodies
���on occasion and liy hundreds of citizens all the time, ind that some day
tbe  present  library   will   need  more
space.
There are ogter-. reasons against
interfering wjyft^WtJjrOry. Square, and,
in passing, we may point out that
during tbe past hot weather it would
ernment has taken practically no port-
in the matter, and there bas been no
co-operation between the home and
the colonial authorities. This ls a
state of affairs that cannot be allowed to continue with impunity. The
present status is not producing results which the welfare of the Empire demands. We are getting a
very consi4erable British immigration in Canada, but we are not getting enough, and not all tnat we are
getting are of the stuff to make the
best citizens. Moreover, our position
in Canada is the most fortunate of
all the colonies. South Africa and
Australia are in even greater need of
settlers than are we, and they are not
obtaining as many as come to us.
It ls easy to see'that there is here
a big problem for the Imperial Trade
Commission. What is needed is a
scheme of co-operation between the
Home authorities and the Governments of the Dominions. We cannot
of course, summarily turn all emlgra
tion from Great Britain to the British Colonies. We must respect the
right .of the emigrants to go where
they choose. But we can devise ma
ohinery which will advise them and
set before them fully the advantage*
of settlement under the British flag
We ought to be able to divert a largr
part of the thousands of British set
tiers who are now going to non-Brit
ish countries. We ought lo be abie
to increase the volume of British im
migration that is already coming t��
Canada. We ought to be able to In
fuse a larger element of British blood
into South Africa, and we ought to be
able to aaaist^Auitralla in settling
her empty territory.
Moreover, there ls an important
vo"-k to be done in looking after the
welfare of the immigrant, which is
now almost entirely neglected. We
ought to provide an organization
which would look after him from the
time he makes known his intention to
emigrate tiil he i3 settled and pros
perous in his new home. He shneld
not be paunerized; but he should be
nrotected from all dangers of fraxd.
These emigrants shov.ld be well se
lected, and then they should be giver
every opportunity lo "make good."
This c��^be done only by co-operation
betwen the Home and Colonial authorities, b"t 'jth such co-oneration
it ought to be easy. To provide that
co-operation i.^ an eminently suitable
task for the Imvprial Trad�� f!or"m''-
sion. Tlie opo;;rtunity should not be
allowed to go by unutilized, It is
hard to say when another such will

Sheridan's Trap.
An interruption while he was making a speech always caused Richaru
Brinsley Sheridan considerable annoyance. On one occasion the dramatist showed his displeasure ol a fellow member of the British House of
Commons who kept cryipg out
"Hear, hear" every lew minutes. During a certain debate Sheridan took
occasion to describe a political contemporary who wished to play rogue,
but had only sense enough to act
fool. "Where," exclaimed he', with
great emphasis���"where shall we find
a more foolish knave or a more knavish foo'. than lie?"
"Hear, hear," was shouted by the
troublesome member.
Sheridan turned and, thanking the
honorable member for the prompt information, sat down amid a general
roar of laughter.

���
Corbett and  Follman  Were Features
���Small Crowd to See Mainlands Go  Down.
Playing better ball throughout the
game, the newly formed Westminster
baseball club handed out defeat to
the Mainlands, of Vancouver, on the
Queens park ball yard Saturday afternoon before one of the smallest
crowds of the season. Whether the
reason was because of the cloudy
weather that ever threatened to
break into a rain storm or not, the
slim crowd tbat graced the expensive
pews could have been comfortably
seated in tbe clear apace of a junk
shop.
Corbett was on the mound for the
Royals, and aided with nearly perfect
support, held down the visitors to
two lone hits. His partner in tbe
battery, Follman, showed up equall)
as wedl avi basesteallng was reduced down to nil, Mr. Follman was also there with the stick and featured
with  two  three-baggers. ,
Weingartner and Chaput were not
glow at all ln the batting display,
the former getting ou first at every
time up.     ,

to  score.
Up went the ball and L. Trunbuli
running around the net evaded two
men and got the rubber past Hess.
It was a fine piece of work and well
merited  the applause he gained.
With five minutes to play, the
Westminsters tightened up, Doughy
Spring going back on the defence and
preventing the green shirts from getting close In.
Lalonde again took the field together with McCarty. The latter
joined the bome and made a good attempt to go tbrough. Lalonde at
the other end took a shot. Kavanaugh
took a hand in the procedings and or
dered Lalonde off again, the latter
having been ���ut of the game a few
minutes over the time allowed. Howard, who had been playing a clean
game, was unfortunate' to have his
atlck run up Carter's shooting uten
ail, hitting him in the face. Kavan
augh ruled Howard off. but as there
was only thirty seconds to play, he
was    not missed.
^Vhen seen after the game, Kavan

Amateura.
Victoria,    Aug.  18.���In   a    terrific
battle  yesterday  on  the  grounds cf
the   Royal   Athletic   Park,   the    Victoria lacrosse team took a fall out of
��� tlie   New   Westminster    amateur  la-
crosse aggregation and beat them by
a score cf 6-:i.   it was a nip and tuck
game from the beginning to the end
ot the  controversy,  and  referee and
judge had great difficulty finding out
just whe did the rough work and who
to penaiize.
During the entire game no less than
four men were sent to tne bench for
terms of three, five and ten minutes
for cross-checking and roughness.
The first to call for the anger of the
referee was McGregor, who was sent
to the fence for five minutes. Ills
teammate* were game in his absence,
ar.d no scores resulted during the
time he was off.

10, but not one of the Vancouver pa
pers gave any mention of it.
Also, the fans of the Royal City
might remember the attack made
upon H. Gifford by I.alonde In thf;
?ame of Aug. 3. One fails to remember any statement made In the Ter
minal City press for this uuwarrant
ed   attack.
The public of New Westminster de
mand a fair and impartial report of
the lacrosse games, but as fur as this
season is concerned, it cannot be
claimed that the Vancruver paper.-
have  lived up to this.

MI1S.  WILLIAM VINT.
(From ''Robertson's Landmarks.")
John  I'layter, a United  Kmpire Loyalist, settled in  ^ ork  (now Toronto)
in" 1706.
Mr.   Playter clearly  remembers the
murder  of  a  member  of   Parliament
name I  Hoiran  by the "Brooks'   llu h iif Bnj
Gang."  who  threw   Hogan   llv m   the
Oon   bridge    on    Queen   sireet   ea-f.
"That was  hefore Toronto linil eider
street cars or straps," said Mr.  P.'iiv
ter.    "Broadview  avenue  was   known
as   Mill   road,  ami   was   in   the   township of York at tlie time, oi ininy  into  the   city   ot  Toronto  about   Hitren
years   later   in   1884,     Tl      hiior   whs
composed  of  n  low  c' **.*, **t men  aol
women,   and    they    were    calle.1   Hip
T.rooks'   Hush   Clang'    because    t'luy
camped   in   the   bush   owned   by   Mr.
Brooks   near   the   thoroughfare   now
known  as  Simpson avenue."
Mr. I'lnyter snid William Vine wns
i. j associated with them in any way,
and be would have been better
pleased if they had never frequented
his tavern. Cnekfighting was not prohibited in those days, and many a
"main" was staged in tlie pit across
tiie road from Die tavern, with llie
sportiiiir fraternity of��� tha city in attendance. The Hoteliers' Arms was
also the rendezvous of the owners of
race horses wliich ran at the oil
Kingston road track (now Queen
street east).
Mrs Vine wns about ninety yenr-:
of aire at the time of her death, s.ime
two yenrs ago, and the only son living is now in Rochester, N.V.
ful ooisoeo; )*-*r] ;t is to th se. rather
than to his healing powers, that he
owps tV> o-<- rn ��� fear and rfvjr?rce
with which he is regarded by the
natives. I
For instance, t'>'y are ey;-��>rts at
handling  nil  kind'   of v~rnt''l)lj  pre.
I ducts, nnd ean produce poisons which I
will drive the victim raving mnd, Hnd I
others that  destroy  th�� brain    power
and cause idiocy.    Some poisons will
cans"   temporary   paralysis;   and thei
awe inspired in the   native   by   such '
an  exhibition   of   pow#r  can   well   be
imaei"ed.     But   the   preparation   of
these dru?s remains a secret th" white
man has never been able to discover
or buy.
Difler��nt nat:ve tribes have cliff.r
ent seer 's, and some, of cours��, hav
non.1. The natives of Borneo have
one solitary seer t wllich, thouih, it
is m,t of much practical value, is yet
of Mnm��t:s ��� scientific interest. . It consists of r'ducing a human skull to a
smnll ornng.\ while preserving the
contour with absolute accuracy, together with all the recognizable features. Even the hair is r tained.
Ard although a native will s.mutim"s
| sell to a white mnn a skull that has
h"en so tr.atfd, no amount of money
| will induce him  to sell the secret ol
the  process.
There ar- several well known mysteries thnt have been witnessed by
most trav 1 rs in tropical countries.
One cf these is the unserutable power
of communication over immense distances. Innumerable instances have
been recorded in the newspapers of
ev.nts of importance being known in
the native villages hour- before nny
known physical means of sending the
news could hnve  h.'en employed.

Soap washes over the surface, leaving1 a greasy

Soap needs muscle help (as an exerciser, it's
fine); GOLD DUST does all the hard part ofthe

GOLD DUST is a good, honest, vegetable oil

During, the past two days the G. N.
R. officials have had quite a job on
their hands recovering a loaded car
frtrta the-bed of the river at the railway company's wharf, near the Fras
nr river bridge. The accident happened on Thursday evening while tht
cars were'being unloaded from tht
deck of the barge which has bee;
brought into the run between here
and Sidney harbor by reason of the
neavy  increase of freight  traffic.
The car i was allowed to run on tc
the apron before the barge was made
fast, with the result that both barge
and apron were precipitated into the
stream.   ���
A dispatch wa? immediately sent
to Everett, and a wrecking crew was
sent north together with one of the
heavy cranes. As soon as the machine arrived grappling operations
were commenced. The submerged
car was loaded with machinery.

How  Icelanders Tie  Horses.
The icelanders have �� strange but
effective plan for preventing horses
straying away from any particular
spot. If two gentlemen happen tn be
riding without attendants and wish to
leave their horses for any reason they
tie the head of one horse to the tail
of the former. In this state it is utterly impossible for the horses to move
on, eitber backward or forward. If
disposed to move at ail it will be only
in a circle, and even then there must
be mutual agreement to turn tbeir
heads the same way.
