that institution. ^^^^^^^^^
The committee was composed of
Messrs!! J. C. Blair, W. G. McQuarrie
and J. R. Agar, and the executive
after thanking It tor Its work, adopted
measures ln Une with Its recommends
tions:- The report is as follows:
20,000 Applications Behind.
"We flnd that the land registry
office at New Westminster ls abou'
20,000 applications behind, which
means that there are some 20,000 set:
of papers whloh have not yet been
examined by the officials of the registry office. We also Iind that this con
dition ot affairs prevents the registration of titles for from one to two
years after applications are made for
"We also tind that great confusion
exists asd that It la almost Impossible
for any oae to pus any title with the
assurance tbat the same Is absolutely
in order. Tbls, of course, means great
embarrassment to persona doing business with the land registry office and
Is a great hardship to all concerned
In Other Provinces.
"So far as we can item a similar
condition of affairs does not exist In
any other country where there is a
land registry office system. In the
other provinces of the Dominion there
la no place so far as we have been
able to ascertain wbere it takes more
than a week at the very outside to
register a conveyance unless lt Is an
exceptional case.
"In this respect we ate not refertfhz
particularly to the land registry offici
in this city aa the same remarks apply to other cities in the province. Vv-
have, of course, endeavored to ascer
tain thu reason wUy the lano registry
offices In British Columbia should bt
so behind with their work and so tar
as we have beeu able to discover and
so far as tbe Westminster office Is
concerned there are several things
whicb contribute to tbe present con
dition of affairs, namely, the tnadt
quacy cf the present office space, thu
lack of a sufficiently large staff ol
competent clerks and the present sys

"We understand that arrangement.!
are being made by the government
to extend the present premises and
to construct another building of sufficient capacity to give all the space re
quired. There seems to be nothing
definite as to when this building will
be commenced and It ls imperative
that there would be no further delay.
We would suggest that this association take every means in Its power to
see that the construction of this build
ing is rushed.
"As to the insufficiency of the present staff we find that the present scale
of wages is to a very large extent responsible for the registrar's Inability
to keep good men after they have
learned the land registry office business sufficiently well to he able to do
the work. We would refer to aeveral
specific cases where men who hav*
made llrst class clerks have tog hf
cause they could not get auirtoient
wages to live on. A. we U����ar.tand

Regarding the Pitt river canal
scheme it was felt that some data as

Vernon  Conference.
Colonel Davidson wrote regretting
his Inability to speak at the next
luncheon, but he hoped to do so at a
future Sate. Invitations were received to the Burnaby flower show meet-
ng on October 23, and regarding the
representation of the association at
the Vernon conference of public
bodies it will be ascertained how
many of tbe members are desirous of
going. Aa strong a representation as
possible wa* advocated.
Supreme Court  Face* Knotty  Point
Concerning Interpretation of
Custom* Act.
Ottawa, Oct. 16.���In the ��uprem��
court thl* morning argument wa.
concluded and Judgment reserved lo
the important case of the Foss Lumber company, of Winnipeg, versus thej
orown and the British Columbia Lumber and Shingle manufacturers.
The point at Issue Is whether duty
ta collectable on sized lumber sawn
on three side* and planed on one
side. Eugene Lafleur, K.C, on behalf
of the British Columbia lumbermen,
enlarged upon hi* contention of yesterday that the lumber on which duty,
was collected, ln order to constitute ���
test caae had gone through more than
bue. process of manufacture, and tbere
fore is not entitled to^free entry Into
Mat.y questions were asked by - Sir
Charles Fitzpatrlck, chief Justice, and
otber Judges, and it was apparent that
the court regards the matter of the
interpretation of clause 604 of the
customs act as a legal probtem of con
siderable difficulty.
Judge Duff said it would be deslr
able to know when representations
had been made to the government in
regard to those importations and
what decisions the customs board had
given on that point.
Mr. I.afleur said that no evidence
had been submitted in the excheque,
as to that.

Burnaby Lake, Oct.,15.���Preparations are moving apace'towards the
building ot the Uurnaby Country club
on the shores of Buruaby lake. This
neighborhood Is coming more and
more Into the limelight in the matter
ot expensive houses and bungalows,
and especially has this been evident
during the past summer.
The $50,000 house of Mr. F. J. Hart
is about completed and he is expecting to move in within a week's time.
Others who are building are Mr. R.
F. Anderson, of Vancouver, Mr. D.

The grounds of the Country club,
which cover several acres, are being
cleared and with the addition ot a
few more members, the officers believe the time wtll be ripe towards
making a beginning on the building.
A slight hitch in the arrangements
for having a crossing over the Burnaby branch of the B. C. E. R. has ap-

statement given out by Mr. E. H.
MwMfield yesterday. Mr. Mansfield
together with Mr. R. D. Edwards, have
bees appointed managing director* ol
the People'* Trust company of thit
city ��t an election held during tht
latter part of last week. Both gentl ���
men are from Victoria and are well
known in financial circles not only lu
British Columbia, but throughout the
Dominion and also In London, England.
For the past two years they have
been associated with some very larg��!
financial undertakings tn Victoria and
Vanoouver, and the sequence of events
ln New Westminster which during
the fui*t few month* has attracted the
attention of the outside world, waa

Financial Experience.
Mr. Mansfield ia one of tSe officers
of the Fifth regiment of Victoria, and
previous to coming out to British
Columbia was for many years connected wl"h the Indian office of the British government so that his experience
In financial undertakings dates back
tor many years.
While no alterations and improvement* are contemplated In the near
future to the People'* Trust company,
Mr. Mansfield stated that the concern,
a* he found It, was on a flrm financial
basis and that with the near approach
of the return of a heavy real estate
movement throughout Western Canada, he felt sure that New Westminster would participate in a goodly sum
of the amount to be Invested.

Mission City, Oct 16.���A verdict of
murder against Cy McLaughlin, for
'the killing of Mrs. Sophie Jasper, Wm I
Jasper and Qeorge McNeill, rliich '
took place on Sunday afternoon on
Nicomen Island, waa brought in by u
coroner'* jury this morning at Deroch.
The proceedings were In charge ot
Coroner Stewart or Mission City and
few witnesses v. ere cal ltd, the w.fe
of McLaughlin, who was an eye-wit
ness of the affair, being the principal one. Mrs. McLaughl.n reta'ned n
reticent air regarding the murder and
refused to be questioned by any except the coroner.
The search for the slayer ls being
kept up night and day and every loop
hole of escape ls now thought to be
guarded. Another police party left
Vancouver for the scene and in charge
of Senior Constable Gammon cf New
Westminster, they expect to run
across McLaughlin before another
day haa passed. They figure that thr.

revolver ^bot of-McNeill, who was

him surrender or else cause his death
within a short time.
He Is wounded ln the breast and
after the shooting had taken place,
he compelled his young wife to remain by the roadside and try and locate the bullet ln his body. This, according to her story, ahe was unable
to do on account of the large flow ot
blood from the wound. The posse in
pursuit is fully armed as McLaughlin
is known hereabouts as a sure shot
and thl* was demonstrated by the fact
that but three shot* were necessary
for him to kill his three victims.
McLaughlin is well known In pollce
circles, having served a term ln the
New Westminster Jail tor a stabbing
affray he was mixed up ln at Harrison.
This was two years ago and Constable
Lister, who arrested him at that time
was threatened with bis life when
once McLaughlin got out Constable

Bloor street, and knowing the Men*

With a few of the other judges,

a couple of cases the call of the Palais

him either in the court house hall or

Wild dogi do not bark. They whine.
growl, howl, but th�� true bark is never
heard among them. The explosive
noise familiar to us all in tbe bark of

harking of the domesticated dog is an
effort on the animal's part to speak,
which he derives from his association
with msn. The dog's bark is, of
course, varied in its expression. Any-

Snowball O'Connor Beat* Coquitlam Wrestler.
A rattling good program was that
provided by the Moose Athletic Club

St. Ueorge'a hall laat evening. Ihe
neating capacity was taxed and many
were standing to wntch the curse
of events, which for New Westiniu&te/
were above the ordinary.
Perhaps the feature event was a
three round bout hetween Frank
Barrieau and Jack Smith, both of the
V. A. C, ln the 145 pound class. Smith
was tbe most aggressive In the firs-
two rounds;, but Barrieau came back
in the third and mixed things In
Aa this was an exhibition affair no
decisions were given with the exeep
tlon of the wrestling bout between
"Snowball" O'Connor, of New Westminster, and McCullough, of Coquitlam. O'Connor won the flrst round
by aggressiveness, getting the second
with a pin hold. Chief Watson
refereed the bout, while the boxing
events were In charge of J. Horne, of
the 104th regiment.
The boxing bout between C. Patten
V. A. C., Canadian champion, and
Clements. V. A. C. In the 125 pound
class, was rather tame, neither of the
bovs showing much of an attempt to
extend themselves.
The battle between Art Fox, V. A.
C. (125 pounds I. and J. Porter. Moose
A, A., was a little more exhilarating,
the local boy giving the Vancouver
artist a good run.
The icran between Art Label ani
Eddie Murphy, both of Coquitlam.
brought the proceeding to a fitting
close. Both bovs were In flne condition and made things hum while they

The vacation season Is one of Joy
nnd activity for most young people-
Tbe school grind being over snd the
thought of . study banished for 'tbe
time permit the pursuit of health and
pleasure in Held, forest, mountain and
by tbe seaside. Games and sports of
course occupy tbe youthful mind for
tbe most part and each Individual
bas ample time to Indulge in his or ber
favorite pastime. Baseball, swimming
and fishing usually are fun enough
for any boy, while girls, although fond
of tbe water, nre not so partial to
baseball. Basketball, however, remains
s popular gnme with tbe girls and ls a
flue outdoor exercise. The snapshot ot
a girl trying for a goal was taken in a
New York park.
Bunch of Ivy.
This game i.s phiyed by an odd number and Is more fun if a good many
play, say thirteen or fifteen.    Choose
partners and let there be one odd one.
(Tbe (.'iris kneel, and each one's partner, presumably a boy, takes ber band
Iind to tbe tune of some familiar, lively
Isoug circles round ber as in a dance.
One of the girls (tbe leaden suddenly
says. "Wbat time does the king cume
rbome?"   The circling continues, while
itbe odd player suys, "At I o'clock." ��r,
"At 2 o'clock," or any hour she chooses.
Tbe   girl   leader   then   says.   "What
does he bring with blm'/"    Tbe extra
player answers. "A bird." or. "A dower." or. "A diamond." or anything else
she may  think of. but  when be sny*
thnt the king brings home "A hunch or
ivy" all the boys musl start off und ruu
around the outside of the ring as many
times as the girl leader has said bnurs
of the clock���once If 1 o'clock, twice If
2 o'clock, aud so on. and buck each to
Ills imrtner.   The one getting lank to
Ids partner last loses bis place, and tbe
extra boy takes It, tbe loser becoming
the odd one.
Gams ef Initials.
A leader Is llrst chosen who begins
tbe piine by addressing to any player a
remark whose words begin wltb the Initials of that player's mime In their
proper order or some epithet beginning witli those Initials. The othera,
one hy one, address ihe same player io
like manner. Whenever ihe player
wbo Is addressed cau answer one of
the others wilh a sentence or epithet
beginning wltb the hitler's Initials I ***���
fore the next player speaks, then all
lhe players muat address tbe one so
answered, nnd ao the game goes on
Kor instance, if a player's Initials
are A. E. R. he may be addressiil as
"an exquisite lienuty," "an early bird."
"apple iiitlng brother." etc.
As all may uot lie familiar with every ones Initials. It would facilitate
tbe game If each one hud his or her Initials plainly written and pinned on bis

"Since you are all so honest It would
lie Invidious to select a single oue over
Ihe othera. I will therefore leave the
whole lot of you In charge."
This he did. and upon bis return
found things as lie hnd left Ihem. Every beast cried mil Its faithfulness and
demanded its recognition. Inn as the
peasant flourished his knife and made
rendy for work he aald:
"Had there lieen one of you the cur

that you were compelled to lie honest.

bases his forecast on the most    remarkable growth that has occurred in
the school population since the opening of the fall term.
According to the figures the highest
attendance during September was
1DHD pupils, as compared with 1823
for the corresponding period of last
year. ThU shows an increase of
160 pupils, or 8.75 per cent., wblcb Is
'much beyond even the most sanguin-i
expectations of the scbool board secretary. An even more remarkable ad
vance is siiown when the figures for
September are compared with those
for June this year before the summer
vacation. The daily attendance during June was 1705, or 284 students
less than during last month. At the
opening of the fall term 260 more
children attended than previous to
the vacation, the balance being made
up during the month.

As a result of the battle royal
among several Hindus employed in
the Small & Buckl'n Mill last Saturday night, three of the turT>aned gentlemen were committed for trial by
Magistrate Edmonds in the police
court yesterday morning. A feature

blood-stained shirt he had on when he
rceived the wound in his head.
Hari Singh, Lal Singh and Ganesha
Singh are the three Hindus who are
"harmed with assault occasioning
bodily harm, and four witnesses are
held in default of $1000 bonds to appear against them. The preliminary
'���earing yesterday brought out conflicting stories, both from the polio"
and from the Hindus who testified
bt't Magistrate Kdmonds decided
there was sufficient evidence to warrant investfeation bv a higher court.
Mr. C. L. Fillman, of Vancouver, represented Hari Singh, and the other
two had for counsel Mr. J. P. Hampton Bole, of this city. B. L. Verma,
of Vancouver, acted as interpreter.
