Not  Given.
I/ondon, Aug. 13.���A sensation was
caused today by the announcement of
the Bisbop of the Falkland Islands

mission to raise $5000,000 to carry on
the work there.

church and the people." ruii3 a striking clause.

numbers on their way up to the

is being utilized by the hunters, for
in twenty-four hours or more the ban
wlll be on, the barrier will be up, and
king sockeye and the lesser lights of

unimpeded to spawn and die.
The close season lasts from August

West Burnaby, August IS.���With
the school population of Burnaby
doubled during the past six months,
the scliool trustees are finding It difficult to accommodate tie pupils in
the existing schools, and In several
of the districts the residents are demanding that additional rooms be
added on to the present buildings.
This rupld Influx of uew eettlars Is
aaid to be accounted tor by reason of
the people cf Vancouver and South
Vancouver moving out further in the
country where land is more easily
obtainable.
South Vancouver, It is aald. Is by no
means ln a back place as lar as increase in population ia concerned, and
during the half year juet passed

colonies, while he was also president
of the British board of agriculture.
Edmonds, Aug. 13.���Papers calling
for their appearance in court have
been served upon all the Burnaby
councillors by the solicitors of Mr. L.
G. Robinson, a contractor of Vancouver, who claims $50,000 damages from
the municipality on the grounds that
he alleges that a road coutract was
taken away from him wrongfully and
without sufficient justification. The

Reports from the north indicate
that the sockeye run of the season ha=

ENORMOUS ASSESSMENT

Montreal, Aug. 13���Reaching the
enormous total of $680,000,000 the as-
Mossed valuation of Montreal property

$159,000,000. '
Deducting from this great total the
exemption of ohuroh property, civic

WORK ON B. C. E. R.
about five years ago when a case of
salmon was sold for about $5 to $5.50.
What Is It today ? One cannot buy a
case for less than $10 and even higher
than that. Today the fish are bringing the fishermen 40 cents each. It
takes on an average twelve flsh to
make a case. That means $4.80 to
the fishermen alone. The canners
want a fair return for the outlay on
tbeir plant. The white men employed
In the canneries draw down good
money, while the Indians and Chinamen in the work do not work 'for
nothing.    No. sir,, this may perhaps
money.
Yesterday the receipts at the tax
collector's office amounted to approximately $23,000, a sum which made the
total receipts to date considerably
over $100,000, or a little more than
two-fifths of tbe total amount of
taxes according to the "assessment.
The handling of such large amounts
of cash necessitates a great deal of
extra work on tho part of the city
staff, and not a few are working overtime to keep pace with the accounts.
Today Is expected to be a record
breaker as  far as  receipts are  con
be an off year, but the high cost of I cerned as Mr. J. J. McKay, the treas-
Ilving is  affecting everyone, and    In   urer, points out that a number of the
charges. If. then, the United 8tates
t-m % nation, It cannot discriminate
either ln favor of Itself or against
Canada and observe the terms of the
treaty. Its effect upon aea-golng
trade at the port pf Vancouver, If this
discrimination ia allowed, will of
course, be serious. With six or seven
transcontinental roads making to that
port as an ocean terminus, and the
terms of the treaty observed, a large
nart of the grain traffic of the Middle
West will go to Vancouver for shipment via the Panama Canal to Europe and almost an equally large part
of the Importations wlll come by sea
for British Columb'a and the pralrle
province* through the Panama Canal."

BIQ STEAMSHIP MERGER
Progressive Association Ship-
piag Committee Makes
Report,
Delegates Appointed to Dry Farming
Congress at Lethbrldge���Recent
Visit of Druggist*.
At the meeting of tbe executive
committee of the Progressive association last evening, an important report
submitted by the shipping committee,
which dealt with the freight service
between Westminster and Victoria
was adopted ln its entirety.
The committee whicli consisted of
Messrs. W. A. Gilley, Sheriff T. J.
Armstrong and Edward Goulet, said
that they had interviewed Mr. Rowley,
of the S.S. Burin, for the purpose of
discovering the amount of fr.jght going out from the port.
It was found that while at present
time no large tonnage was being shipped, tbire was good prospect for increase in the near future which would
justify a freight boat running between the cities.
Delay in Vancouver.
The   committee   declared   tbat   a
great deal of freight nov west over
the B. C. E. It, the C. P. R. and the
|G. N. R. lines, for shipment ont   of
Vancouver to Victoria, lt would   take
I some time to divert this traffic, but
they considered it conld be accomplished without any great difficulty, aa
shippers are subjected to considerable
delay on the Vancouver route.
While the association felt that it
could not officially endorse any particular freight service, yet it considered it within its province to draw
the attention of shippers to the importance of doing everything possible
to assist any boat that nfbs on a
regular schedule. The Burin was the
only boat at present fuIfiRing the3e
conditions.
Advantage e�� fl*JWd^-
Tn adopting the "report It waa de-
[cided also to call the attention of
shippers to the fact that it is to their
advantage to ship freight by a regular
schedule boat, at schedule rater
rather than patronize tramp steamers:
which would be ready to cut rates
rather than sail light.
The Druggists Visit.
On behalf of a specfal committee ap- ���
pointed *to entertain the druggists during their recent vfsft to Westminster.
Mr. I. M. Richardson stated that   in |
the opinion of the committee the visit
and reception accorded the men    of
pills and potions would be productive,
of much good as everything had passed off very successfully.
Unfortunately the committee had
been unable to secure an observation
car for the trip over from Vancouver,
on ******* nt cf the fact that the B. C.
P ��� ' ,'A no trams of this deacription
fltti d i�� fli proper wheels to negotiate-
the interurban lines. In spite of this
fact the B. C. B. K. company had
been very courteous and without
doubt their co-operation In providing
free transportation fbr tho party bad
in a large measure been responsible
for its success.
The report of the committee waa
adopted and the secretary waa instructed to convey'the thanks of the
association to the B. C. B. tt for the
part which they had taken in the entertainment of the drnggbdl * \
Committees Appointed. '���$. .<
Committees were appointed to investigate matters concerning tbe
local post office, tbo existing telegraph service, the observation ear pro-
Ject, the Fraser valley settlement, and
a proposal to give greater publicity to
the means of registering voters.
Mr. J. A. Dadds and Mr. A. K. Eas-
ton wero appointed ao delegates to

sity. And, in her present- state of
invisibility, it is interesting to recall
her as she appeared in the substance
and the flesh prior to her ccriimeuce-
ment of" a life of rampage.
About six years ago���p?r! ips more,
perhaps less ��� Christabel Pankhurst
was attending the necessary lectures
in preparation for her final examination for the degree cf Bachelor of
Laws., These lectures were held in a
room over the Manchester Law Library in Kennedy street, and something like fifteen students were usually ] sen*. Of these, by fur the most
regular attendant was Christabel.
Punctually at five o'clock the lecturer
would take his stand at thc rostrum,
and just as surely as be cleared his
throat to commence Christabel would
silently appear in her place and automatically open her notel a k ready to
take down his first word.
There was nothing striking about
Christabel's appearance. Sho wa*
just an ordinary middle-class girl,
displaying no anticipant traces ui her
future suffragist notoriety. Mouse-
colored huir and a suit, babyish lace,
a good color, ami ejes of a nondescript hue surmoui.ted a body to over
plumpness, and ul somewhat clumsy
build.
Such was the now elusive Christabel in appearance, and her general
bearing was quite in accordance with
thi promise uf her exterior. Srhe gave
the impression of being frightened by
her position amongst so many members of tiie opposite sex. Her rue
was never to audress an unnecessary
remark to any ul her ft^loW-stlldeiiU,
and her tardy arrival and punctual
departure at lt��.ure times leli un opportunity for advances from those
who might have kit inclined to enter
into conversation witli her. She was
superficially ton uninteresting, how
aver, to be in any danger ui bijug
overwhelmed by the over-anaiduuu..
attentions of udaiiivrs; and, with one
exception, nothing occurred during
ner umleiyrailu.il, ship to draw hpj
particular attention to her nr to single her out lrom the rank and
of those attending the lee tu ies,
it was ht r eternal misfortui.e ���
sex ��� wliich eventually c.tu.-el
exception.
lt was immediately prior to
commencement ul a lecture upon that
intricate subject "equity," so lar as
memory serves, when the cla.-s was
pleasantly electrified by the rumor
that Christabel has been thc recipient ul an anonymous epistle containing passage of an ,it least questionable Character. A gentleman attending thc lectures���there seonifed n >
hesitation in fixing upon one of the
students ��� had uddressed u;i anonymous communication to Miss Panic-
burst���a communication brimful i i
scandalous observations and generally disgraceful in tune. Further tie-
tails were withheld, and the "ffeitilinj
gentleman was called upuii in the
came of decency to deliver 1 iin* ..
up to the university authorit ies.
flits appeal, probably owing i > the
personality of tlie lecturer, very
strangely met with a respoll.se, ami,
t.lough no b final announcement was
made, it became generally known that
tne culprit, who appeared qu.to incapable nf such an action, ard wh >
ws not even included in his fellow-
students' liot of suspects, hud confess
ed and apologized.
Christabel continued to attend the
lectures in the same chastened spirit
as of old. and was promptly re,elated to hsr former position of insigniti
cance. Bhe never showed any indie*
tion of phenomenal brain power or
brilliancy, and her ultimate success
was, to all appearance, entirely due
to hard plodding, to which sue ci uld

Official Organs Are Silent  Regarding
British Speeches���Keel Follows
Keel on Waya.
Berlin, Aug. 13.���Expectations that
tbe naval authorities would make a
statement of policy in reply to the recent utterances of the British First
Lord, appear doomed to disappointment, for so far the usually inspired
organs have maintained remarkable
reticence.
Ridicule, however, Is freely poured
on the report that Germany has' secretly under way the construction of
nine battleships calculated to entirely
upset the 60 per cent, superiority ln
battleship of the Dreadnought era
which Mr. Churchill claims for 1914.
It is well known that German naval
authorities miscalculated the progressive speeding up In naval armaments
for which they themselves are bo
largely responsible, ln the vital matter of providing sufficient drydocks
for the construction of these leviathan warships.
Every government and private shipbuilding yard Is filled to capacity with
battleship and battle cruiser construction of the regular programs or thai
provided for under the naval law to
replace obsolete vessels.
So soon a3 one hull slides off the
stocks the keel is laid for another, but
although new drydocks are under construction, their number Is not being
divulged. These cannot be got readv
for two or three years and can have
no immediate effect on the rate of
construction.
Indeed, recent shipbuilding has
proved disappointing to the author!
ties, v. ho a couple of years ago had
some reason to think that ln speed of
construction and armament the father-
land was fast approaching the normal
limit of two years set in the Britisli
government and private yards. This
has been attained in one case, b-.it at
the cost, it is believed, of unsatisfactory work.
British  Plans Much Better.
What is considered much more near
the truth is that the British practice
of assembling ahead, even bifore authorized by parliament, the necessary
armor, gun positions and machinery.
is now being followed by the German
authorities in order that so soon as
slips become available the assembled
material may be built Into the hull
with a3 little delay as poss'ble.

The daya are fleeting by, and on
September 21. that ia exactly five
weeks next Saturday, H. R. H. the
Duke of Connaught has signified hls
Intention of according the Royal City
the honor of a visit. Many citizens
are beginning to enquire just what
arrangements are being made to welcome the visitors, and-while there is
a surprising lack of elucidation forthcoming from Westminster sources, it
is stated in a Chilliwack contemporary that final arrangements have
heen made for the Duke to visit tliat
olty on September 21, and that the
B. C. E. R. is providing a special
train for the occasion.
When questioned at the recent
.meeting of the Progressive Association as to the arrangements in connection with the royal visit to Westminster, Acting Major Gray stated
that final arrangements had not been

the Duke would come.

Of equal importance with the punishment of crime and indeed the first
necessity if law and order are to be
vindicated is the -protection of the
witnesses without whose evidence
conviction is impossible. A despatch
from Montreal appearing on Saturday
intimated that witness after witness,
at the preliminary hear.'ng in the
case of Carlo Battista. charged with
murder, swore to the receipt of
threatening letters, declaring death
to be the penalty for testifying
against the accused. Attempts by
bribery, by the Exercise of terrorism,
and even by actual murder tp prevent the giving of testimony in criminal trials have been common enough
in the United States, and the situation there affords serious enough evidence of the existence of strong secret agencies whose activities are Intended to thwart the course of justice. To this cause Is no doubt In a
measure attributable the many crimes
of violence that remain undiscovered
and unpunished.
In the Montreal case the accused
and his victim are from Italy, a country, particularly in its southern districts, which has developed dangerous secret societies protecting their
members by organized terrorism and
prime. Italian immigrants from
Naples and Sicily have brought over
these societies and their methods with
thorn, and have been responsible for
thus providing an example readily followed by other conspirators against
the peace of the state. The evil ought
not to be allowed to extend In Canada,
and wherever it appears no effort
should be spared to trace and punish
severely any and every endeavor to
impede t'ie operation of the criminal
law. Difficult as this may be, it must

AFRAID   OF   JAPAN.
Lower California still belongs to
Mexico, and there have been indications tnat Japan Would like to use it
as a naval hase. It is doubtless to
head of any such attempt that Senator Lodge has - induced the United
States senate to pass a resolution
warning the powers of the world that
the United States will not tolerate
"the occupation by a foreign- government of say territory on the American continent" the position of which
menaces the Safety of the United
Statea Magdalena Ray, on the coast
of Lower California is just about
half-way between San Francisco and
Panama, and evidently it is feared
that Japan, if not forestalled, may
place hersrir in a position to molest
future traffic between the Pacific and
the Atlantic ports of the United
Statea
,   With tbe spirit of the resolution, Its
particular object being easy to divine,
no fault can be found.     As has been
pointed out. It is quite   as woll   war
ranted under International law ns was
the action of Great Britain  in  warning  Germany   away   from   Agadir,   in
Morocco.    Japan  certainly  Is  a  possible foo   to   be   dreaded   on   Pacific
waters.    Her defeat  of  the   Russian
fleet shows how well she has mastered the art of naval war.   lt is because
of this that Australia feels so nervous
In the pursuit 6t her policy of keeping that island 'a white man's country," and wantB Canada to co-operate
with beT ttl the formation of a Hritish
squadron   able   to   dominate    the   Pacific     The -United States apparently
feels unequal to the task   of meeting
Japan on equal terms at sea, though
���he conld easily do so if assured of
and would probably welcome, the assistance   of    such    a   Canadian-Aus
trallan squadron as Australia has ii
mind.   Under present  e'reumstances
her best pollcy Is to forbid the estab
IiBhment   of a Japanese naval    basr
anywhere on the Pacific coast of thi
American   continent.      A   navy, how
ever strong nt home, is cotnparatlvel'
helpless a long way from the coal sup
piles, the drv docks, etc., of Un near
rut base, nnd a Japanese fleet might
be ln a bad way without such   fa^ill-
ties after a voyage across the worlds
widest ocean.
The only regret is that some other
name than that of Senator Lodge
conld not have been attached to his
resolution. 'Ha is In the forefront of
Mooscjaw, Sask., Aug. 13.���The
rural municipality of Moosejaw has
deckled to take unto Itself some cf the
profits that are being made by the
nvners cf subdivisions when in its
boundaries. In other words, it is taking full advantage cf the taxing powers conferred upon it by the rural'
municipalities act and, as a result, expects to collect from the owners of
subdivisions about $25.00(1.
The owners of subdivision lying
outside the city limits have been enjoying what has been considered a
particularly good thing. They have
reaped all the advantages resulting
from advertising of the fact that their
holdings are only a comparatively
short distance from the city while at
the same time they have escaped the
high civic assessment and the not inconsiderable tax rate.

Toronto, Aug. 13.���Dave Walters
and Alice Davis, who were arrested
in the Palmer House Saturday night
by Detectives Mitchell and Cronin in
connection with the robbery of $270,-
000 from the Bank of Montreal, New
Westminster, B. C, branch, last September, appeared before Magistrate
Denison yesterday and were remanded for a week, without bail. They are
charged with receiving stolen property.
The local superintendent informed
the police that Walters was well
known to the police in Chicago, Cleveland and other American cities, having previously been in custody on four
different occasions. The woman declared her husband was a reputable
citizen of Chicago, aud that they were
simply enjoying a holiday jaunt in
Eastern Canada. Sho stated that she
and her husband had been connected
with several theatrical enterprises.
1 Her explanation of the big amount
of silver found in their possession was
that they had received it as share of
the receipts while playing in different
places in Canada.    She felt that the
1 notoriety of the  whole affair   placed
. her and her husband in an embarrass-
\ ing position.
Walters told the police he lived in
| an aristocratic neighborhood in Chi
cago. Superintendent Fuller of the
Pinkerton Agency telegraphed the
Chicago branch o! the concern to
make inquiries, and received a reply
that the address given by Walters
was a blacksmith shop*.    The superin-
J tendent said that the adjoining building was a noted dive, frequented by
' pickpockets, thieves and confidence
men.
I Last night Acting Inspector of Detectives George Guthrie stated that
police had recovered $9250 of the
stolen money.   The police think that

Plot to Hold Up Czar   on    Yacht    is
Exposed���Disaffection in
Army Also.
Odessa, Russia, Aug. 13.---To seize
the Imperial Russian family on board
their yacht and to compel the czar to
abdicate was the object of a revolutionary plot formed on board the battleship Ivan Zlatoust, of the Black
Sea fleets
The details are just now leaking
out. This conspiracy was more ambitious, more amazingly daring lu Its
objects than the famous mutiny on
the battleship Knlaz Potemkin seven
years ago in the Black Sea.
Timely discovery of It has resulted
in the arrest of a petty officer and
sixteen seamen, all of whom were
promptly sentenced to death. The
conspirators Intended to hold up and
seize the Imperial yacht while the
Czar, the Czarina and their five children were being conveyed from Malta,
their favorite resort in the Crimea, to
Sebastopol.
The czar was to have been compelled to either abdicate the throne
or to abrogate his autocratic powera
and to proclaim a limited monarchy
and a constitutional regime.
The seizure of the Imperial family
was to have beon the signal to the
mutinous Baltic fleet, the crews of
which were to have arrested all their
officers and to have attacked Crons
tadt and St. Petersburg simultaneously.
An urgent order was issued a few-
days ago to tho officers of all grade*
In the Alack Sea fleet, forbidding
them under pain of degradation and
dismissal to discuss the political un
rest among the fleet equipages with
outside persons and civilians, or ever
with their wives.
The whole of the command person
nel were compelled to sign this
urgent injunction.
Strict censorship  Is now exercised-)
over all refe:Vnces in the press to tin
recent     disquieting     symptoms   and
grave disaffection among the rank and
file of the army and navy.

MOOSE WIN OUT IN
. MI6HTSESSI0N
Straw  Hate  as Ml tte���All   Stars  Are
Swamped But Ready For Next
Saturday.
In a five inning contest last evening the Moose nine, champions of the
city, defeated the All-Star team In the
deeding game of the series by a score
of 6-4. It was originally intended, according to both managera, to start
the game at 6 o'clock, but for some
unknown reason and in keeping with
past events ot the season, u start was
not attempted until 6.45.
Some of the players were there to
be sure, but when all had arrived It
became necessary to hold a little pow
wow before an official could be secured to handle the Indicator. This
is not the first time that the teama
have been forced to cut down the
playing time, and the public, to whom
baseball owes its existence in this
city, should be rightfully protected by
not having one of these twilight exhibitions forced upon them.
However, coming back to the game,
the Moose had the better of the play
throughout, and although they were
counted out for five glaring errors,
these were not taken advantage of
bufflciently to change the score a great
deal. Horn was touched for five safe
hits, but kept them scattered. As tor
Corbett he app.e%red a little wild, and,
but for the good work of Brown ln
holding down the high ones, passed
balls would have been in order.
'1 wo teatures were noticed tn the
eeoond stanza. One of tbem was the
perfect bunt of Pentland, while Herb
Kya!l. a spectator in the expensive
pews, created the laugh by nailing
ii high fly in his straw lid. A mitt
manufactured out of straw Is unusual,
and 'tis well that the summer season
is dwindling.
The Bel of mortalities is as follows:

Butler, was a well-earned one. Butler beat him at the start by over a
length, and the lad had a rough journey, while Butler did not lose an
Inch.
Shortly after the  start  Dibble got
mixed  with  Sheehan  of Buffalo   aud.
lost two or thre lengths as a result, 1
but he    reached the    turn on    even |
terms with Butler and  beat   him by
less than a yard in one of the greatest
finishes ever seen on the course.
Don    Cameron   says   that   Dibble's
style is very  much the same as the
late Ned Haitian's, and he thinks that
he will. be. an even greater oarsman
that the  former champion  ever was.
He is young as yet, and can stand all
kinds of hard work.   Joe Wright called him to beat Butler, as he thought,
the latter was not in the best shape!
owing  to  his long ocean   trip   back |
from the Olympic regatta at Sweden.
Dibble will probably be sent to England  for the Diamond sculls in 1914.
The senior eights also   furnished a
rousing finish, and not until the official   announcement   was   made   were
the    spectators   sure of the   winner.
There was not a foot of difference between Ottawa and Detroit for second ,

A Story of a Narrow
Escape
By CLARISSA MACKIE
*AOT SBVUlf.    -��
There la a Chinese proverb that run*
'uoiim'I lilng like litis: "A devil you know
Is safer thau a devil you do not know."
Although .llm Westcott bnd lived In
Ottilia for ten yeara, thla proverb hnd
never boen driven home io him for the
reman that bis natural bump of rau-
UoiiMiiess bnd heretofore prompted blm
when dealing with Asiatics to confine
ills dealings with persons who were rec
oiiiiiM'iided to blm. Sometimes t-heseree
omniendalioUH wereeneedlngly slight
Jim Westcott wus the Shanghai rep
reseutnttve of a lnrge New York silk
importer. It wns Ills business to ne
gotlute for shipments of silk an tbey
cume down from the Inlertor via Nnn
king and thenee by railway to Sluing
Iin I.
Westcott hnd iicents. Chinese, ol
���course, scattered nmong the silk prov
lores, iind through these agents he waa
enabled lo make ninny negotiations
thnt proved very profitable to l-'redor
icka & Co. of New York. So Jim Weat
cott's salary mounted higher each yeni
ns he Increased bis Urni's business. As
Jim was a single man and without neni
relatives he had much tuoiv money
tban he conld conveniently spend for
o man of his quiet tastes, uud ao he
took to gem collecting.
At the time of this story Jim West
colt had Seven fine precious stones.
Tliere was a very large diamond, three
flawless emeralds, two small pigeon
blood rubles nnd one great milky |>earl

About ii mouth after this Jim was
sonled In his otttc-e one morning when

with a long strip of red paper that pro

After the llrst ceremonies of ibe vlsl:
had been concluded anil Ihe buy had

drew hls chair close lo Westioll's desk
uud apoke In Kmcllsh:
"My master, the Don. Wen ilao To

Iteuan politely.
"More itearls?" asked Westcott wtwi
ly. for he hnd a comfortable Iwlituee hi

lutiHy na this might tie.
I Iiik Tal shook hla head nnd smiled
but Iwitk or Ihe smile was a look ot
jsreed that should have warned Jim
Westcott "I nm Ulled with reicrrt
that my muster has suffered many

Jim drew a long breath. If there

If you can spare enough or your very
valuable time to make the Journey to
Slcheiig uud select the coats aud complete the negotiations there."
Jim Westcott sat In deep thought
for several momenta. Ibis was an
entirely new proposition to blm. und
it required consideration. Ells business mlKht be left for the week tbat
It would require to make the Journey
to Sicbeiis and return, for he hud
made np tils shipment for tbe montn.
He felt not the slightest doubt ot the
secretary's sincerity, for lie bud done
business with him for several years.
The mandarin Wen Ilao To waa uo
Inveterate (tumbler and after squeezing his inferiors to tbe utmost farthing
now mnde a yearly sacrifice of aome
precious possession In order to satisfy
hls craving for the gaming table.
"How shall we go?" asked Jim to
gain further time.
"lly railway to Nanking, where my
muster's junk lies; thenre up tbe river of golden sands to Slcbenx."
"I'll go." concluded Jim hustlly. I'll
be through with my business ar 4
o'clock, lf you will meet me at the
railway station I will accompany you
to your mnster."
The rest of the morning wns tilled
hy Jim's preparations for departure.
Wah Loo flew hither and thither at
Ills muster's bidding, his slant eyes cllt-
tering expectantly, it tliere Is one
thing more than another that a Chinese servant thorongjily enjoys It is
a hubbub of nny soil
Almost nt the last moment Jim called the servant lo him.
"Boy," he said, ������ran so net all same
reudy, chop-chop "
"Can so!" squealed Wah I.oo. delight-
ed ut the Idea ol a Journey.
"Skedaddle, then!" coiiuunndi tl .llm.
And. ailliout.il ibat wasn't KttJfllsti or
even pigeon English, Walt l.oo under,
stood the order and skipped away to
make Ills scanty preparations.
Jim Westcott had two reasons Iur
taking Wah l-oo with him. He heller,
ed the Iwy to be faithful, for he had
been seven years In Jim's personal
service, and be telt tbat goin); Into i lie
Interior, where there Is constant tf.ui-
ger from bandits mid rivet pirates. n��
needed some loyal henchman who
might at least report til-, master's death
In case anything did happen. Anil in
these Isolated provinces things were
very like- to ���'happen" iu the most
casual way.
The Journey to Nanking was uneventful, ns wns Ihe trip up the river.
Tbey were ntinckitl by river pirates
one dark night, but a violent thunderstorm effectually put tlie rascals to
flight, and the frightened crew of the
mandarin's pleasure craft returned 10
their posts after mucb persuasion rrom
the fat captain.
At Slcheng wharf they were met hy
sedan chairs. In which Ihey were
promptly whirled nway to the mandarin's palace a few miles beyond tlie
city.
Suddenly that old Chinese proverb
came lit Jim's mind. "A devil ytui know
is safer lhan une yon don't know "
���Tin mighty glad I brought Wall I.on
along." he lollluqulaM. "I tvrtalniy
know that little yellow devil."
It was nn added comfort to f����1 the
two loaded automatic revolvers In nls
|H>ckets.
All at once ibev entered n dcsobite
region When tbe mini was itiereh a
rough track. Jim womb-red lliat Ihe
highway that led to the mandarins
palace should tie an III kept and apparently little traveled. If llie men bail
ilellis-nitely chosen this mil ot the ��mV
route It wns evidence thai some ml*

It waa not only brewing, hut bubbling over, for Jim hnd nn suntter

PLAN   ATTACK   ON   HAYTJ.
Refugees In Jamaica Endeavor to
| Charter Ships for Purpose.
Kingston, Jamaica, Aug. 13.���Movements apparently in the Haytien colony here indicate that operations are
under way for the formation of an expedition to oust the new president of
Hayti, General Tancrede August*,
who was elected by the Haytien congress, Aug. 8, following the tragic
death of General Leconte.
The movement is headed by General
Antonlne Simon, who took refuge in
Jamaica in August, 1911, after his
government had been overthrown by
a revolution which placed General Le
Conte at the head of the country.
General Simon has a considerable following among the Haytlens who have
sought refuge here.
Several offers recently have been
made with tbe object of chartering
local shipping but ao far these overtures have proved unsuccessful. It is
believed tbat a descent will be made
on the Haytien coast from tbla country or from Turkish Island within the
next few days.
