Fl hei DESTROYS MILL
AND THREATENS WHOLE CITY
Senator Jansen Is Hero of Fight With Flames-Chief Watson ank His Men Did Yoemen's Service-Three Hundred
Men Thrown Out of Work-Prominent Citizens Active.
A blaze which at one time threat-
ene.l lo have equally as dire an effect
as Ihe great conflagration of September il. IcS'jS, destroyed approximately
$li(l,(i(!0 woith of property at the Royal
Ctty Planing mills yesterday afternoon. Thanks to the heroic efforts of
the lire brigades of the city and the
mill, ihe steamer Senator Jansen an.l
numbers of volunieer helpers, inside
of half an hour the flames were practically under control, the lire area
ciicuniscilbed, and from then on the
men with lhe hose gradually won out
to a triumphant finish. Of the fire
fighters th��� Senator Jansen was in a
way llie hero. Her prompt arrival
practically saved the whole water-
f��� om fi om destruction.
It was just about B:lfi p.m. when
the steam whistle of the mill blew the
lire signal, and a call was hurried in
to Ihe fire department. At once Chief
Watson summoned hls men from flre
f-halls 2 and .'! and with the apparatus
from No. 1 hurtled off to the scene.
Arrived tliere, he found that flames
weie bi caking through tha roof of the
mill and quickly hose was run out an 1

mass behind tbe boiler house, the
flames lea'j.ing over the heads of the

Meanwhile on roof of the factory
yellow men and white slaved away
with bucket and hose damping the
roof. There are 00 barrels of water
placed above the whole mill buildings,
and those on the factory served their
purpose admirably.
Seveial streams were now directed
upon the toiler house, one man calmly sitting ln the window sill and playing the water Into the Inferno which
raged wltl in. Protected by corrugated Iron sheets or stout doors the
firemen got close up to the blaze
with their water nozzles and by 2:45
the flames in the boiler house were
considerably lessened and the danger
to the sash and door factory averted.
Service Men Busy.
Prominent figures ln this part of
the battle ground were j Alderman
Henley and Alderman Gray, who soaked to the skin heaved at the snaking
bore lines with the best. There, too,
were six service men. healed by Mr.
F. Webb, of th�� l'nited Service club,
who had been "commandeered" by
Mr. Stuart Wade. This latter party
also rendered pool assistance ln putting out incipient fires which started
up all over the stacking yards on the
city side of the roa 1, which fires were
caused by the 'mrnin". cinders floating
In lhe air. Buckets v.ere rushed clown

By .'l:.'��> p.m., the victory of the fire

time there was likelihood of lhe boiler
exploding, hut, thanks to the heroic
manner in which all stuck to Iheir
various tasks, and to the excellent
tolifp arrangements, no casualties occurred. Chief Bradshaw, Sergeant
Stanton and the whole police force,
hoise anl foot, were on the ground
and rat Idly formed a coidon keeping
back the crowds.
Interviewed lust night Mr. It. J.
wickman estimated the loss aa being
In the neighborhood of $r>0,000. Just
how much of this Is covered by Insurance ls not exactly known, although several firms In the city representing old established insurance
companies carry insurance for the
whole buildings of the firm. The loss
ls therefore distributed among several
companies. The boiler house and saw
mill were valued at 138,000, and ln
addition to the losses sustained by
the mill company there were three
cars of the B. O. E. R. much damaged
hy the fire. They are covered by Insurance.
siciiiifV Senator JaiiMii was j-st

contributed lb a very large extent, to
the success of Nie efforts of the fire
lighters who were all splendidly
handled bv Flre Chief Watson.
"A Pencil of Fire."
At present It Is the consensus of
opinion that ihe Bre originated ln the
room where the big fan Is situated
which draws all the sawdust from the
various machines In the mill. A spark
or a short circuit may have been the
exact cause, hut however this may be,
It Is thought thnt the flre n'e down-
winds Inio some oil ami sawdust and
suddenly flared out. ,\n engineer In
the factory first saw ll breaking up

The Buildings Described.
Tbe fan room ls near Ihe water's
edge, and coming towards Columhla
street, there are situated the jlunlug
mai hines in a wooden building 05 by
50 feet in measurement, and fitted
with sprinklers on the roof. Linking
on (o It Is tho mill itself, also a
wooden structure of 260 by 05 feet In
measurement, and on the opposite
side to the planers is the brick engine house containing four engines.
Fortv feet from the engine house
coming still towards the city, ls the
holler house, bulit of b'lck, and
measuring 90 by 65 feet. The corner
of the sash and door factory which is
to Ihe west of the boiler house is
only 15 feel from the mill.   "
The mill was soon a mass of flames
which lean snd roared In many colored fury. Deep tn the heart of the
blaze the color was   a greenish   tint.

boile. house caught flre,   There was a
pump In the boiler house capable of

was a hose In the corner of the sa ��
mill nnd this was brought into use
but tho one ln the engine room was
burned.    The    boiler    house    looked
doomed.   The enrlneers stuck to their
tasks drawing  the  flres fn.l  lotting

the flames the ominous hiss of   the
vapour caused  the huge crowds    to
draw back  yet farther.
Praise    for    Flre    Fighters���Plentiful
Water Supply���Hardest Fight for
Some Years. i
Mayor Lee was soon on fhe srot
of the tire yesterday and assisted ln
every way possible to prevent the
conflagration from spreading. When
seen last evening, his worship had
little to say on the flre except a heap
of praise to the brave firemen and
the citizens who assisted them.
"This city," said the mayor, "ought
to be proud of Its fire fighting corps
after the strenuous and succeesful
work they have done this afiernoon. I
am further gratified to see such a response from the citizens of the city,
so many of whom worked with a will
to prevent one of our industries from
heing wiped out of existence. I not!ce:l
several who formerly belonged to the
local department and It ls a matter
of great credit to them that they
should put their shoulder to the wheel
and help in the work."
The mayor also had a good word to
say for the crew of the Senator Jansen, who he thought were directly responsible for an early conquest over
the spieadlng flames.
"Just to show the sceptics that this
city has a plentiful supply of water,*
said the mayor, "let nie tell you that
the water ln the reservoir rose one
anJ a half Inches from the time tbe
fire started. Tbe high pressure pumps
were i laced in Immediate action with
the result that a pressure of nearly
100 pounds to the square inch was
heing forced through tho nozzles."
Chief Watscn's Story.
"I never want to work with letter
men than I did this afternoon," said
Chief Watson last evening. "Everyone worked wit'} a will to save the
propeity, and it would be unfair to
rresent any bouquets to any one section. This was the hardest flght v.e
have had for somo years and I hope
'hat our work satisfies the citizens of
the ci.y.
"The way the old members of the
flue deinutment turned out and h*Jt>ea
.is was a pleasure to watch, although
I can ass-ore jou I had little time to
:"ee" v.!".o Was and who was not there.
1 am not going to say there is much
carelessness around Hie mills of the
city ln the matter of cleaning up. but
this flre today serves fla a reminder
that the less combustible material
there is around a mill of this kind
the greater the chances there aie or
saving it.
"The presence of the Senator Jansen was a great help to us and lt
speaks well for the captain of the
boat to turn around and come down
river to help us out without us asking
for his assistance.
��� I want to thank all those who gave
us any assistance most heartily. Without their help our efforts would have
not been rewaided with so much success."

the White Pass, Dawson and Yukon
railroad. She Is the flrst big sallinj:
ship to enter the Fraser for many

SPECIAL  SUNDAY  8ERVICE.
BURNABY'S WATER
SYSTEM IN SIGHT
Will  Celebrate  Linking  Up    of    Seymour Narrows Main with Vancouver Supply in July.
In order to allow of New Westminster cltlsens taking- advantage of
Sunday outings on the Chilliwack line,
thj. B. C. Klectric Railway company
has arranged to run a single car ut
intervals during the day between New
Westminster and Sperling station,
(two miles east of Jardine on lUngley
Prairie) making the run In one hour.
The car will leave New Westminster
at 8 a.m., 12 noon, 2:30 p.m. aud 5
p.m., returning leave Sperling at 9.10,
1:10 p.m., 3:40 p.m. and 6:10 p.m.
Cara will stop at all stations between these points, allowing fishermen to take advantage of fishing on
Serpentine, Nlqomekl and Salmon
rivers, and also afford picnickers an
opportunity of spending an enjoyable
day at the varioua places, and return
home lh good season.
Mr. Purvis, manager of Interuihan
lines, states that this service Is an
experiment, the continuation of it depends entirely uvon the patronage
given. This service will commence
on Sunday, May 19.
Edmonds, May 14.���Burnaby will
celebrate the opening of the waterworks system on or about the flrst of
July. Definite announcement as to
when tbe connection with the Vancouver system at the Second Narrows will be made was given out last
evening before the board of works by
Engineer MacDonald, who Is ln
charge of the work for Messrs. Cleveland and Cameron. According to Mr.
McDonald, the eight-Inch main running across the Second Narrows from
the Seymour Creek basin, will be fully
adequate to the present needs of the
municipality, a larger main being installed later ln the summer.
It waB learned on good authority
last evening that the Burnaby Council would celebrate the Inauguration
of the system by holding some kind
of a celebration in the North Burnaby section on the day when the
water begins to flow through the
pipes.
The plans of the Montlzllnvlew local
improvement scheme were held up for
the time being owing to the present
state of the money market. It waa
pointed out thnt local improvement
bonds if sold under the market value,
did much to hurt Burnaby's standing
In the London market.
The Burnaby Lake Improvement
scheme Is also slatod for postponement for this year at least, owing to
the same cause. The people who are
at the head of the latter work have
been notified or the action of the
council ln the matter.

DYNAMITE DEALS
DEATH TO BANDIT
Paris, May 15���The career of
the last of Fiance's notorious
bandit gang was dramatically
ended this morning, when, af-
ter eight hours battle with
police and tree?*. Its leader,
Octave Gamier, and his confederate. Vai ott, were blown
un by explosive* ln a small
villa at Nogent-Sur-Marne,
where thev had taken refuge.
Shattered by shots of dvna-
mlte their house fell in ruins
when melinite was exploded
under the walls. The po'ice
found Gamier den:l and Vallet
dying. Five policemen were
wounded ln the battle.
Unheralded by any advance advertising agent, this city yesterday had
as its guests, delegates from all over
jthe piovlnce representing the state
1 council of the Knights of Columbus,
and In every province, state or country where tlie order has Ita members,
-conventions were held at the same
hour on the same day.
Commencing at 8 o'clock in thc?
morning In-St. Patrick's hall the delegates piesent discussed the present
situation of the order In this province,
lesolutions were read and adopted and
officers elected for the coming year.
These are: State deputy, A. G. Bag-
ley, Vancouver; secretary, James I.
Keary, this city; treasurer, J. T
Power, Vancouver; warden, A. J. McDonald, RosBland; advocate, T. Jj-
Scanlon, Nelson; delegates to the
supreme council to be beld in Colorado Springs, Col., A. G. Bagley and'
F. J. Sehl; alteinates, J. Hart and'
Fred J. Lynch.
In the evening a banquet was given
by the Westminster council of K. of
C. to the visitors, some sixty sitting
down to a sumptuous repast provided
most successfully by the Young
Ladies' Choral club. Alderman-
Fred J. Lynch, past grand Knight of
the local lodge, held down the position of toastmaster. Perhaps the
speech of the evening was that by
Father W. P. O'Boyle, who contrasted
the K. of C. with the people ln the
days of Christopher Columbus. The
reverend speaker used nearly every
nautical term of past and present seamanship except "shiver my timbers"
and had the guests rollicking with
laughter at some of bis remarks, lt
was not altogether a humorous speech,
however, the present socialist situation bein; discussed, and Father
O'Boyle stated that the greatest
menace to the church In the West at
the present time was the spirit of
materialism.
Grand Knight X. D. Byrne forgot the
conventional matters long enough to-
dwell a little on this city's prospect*
of getting her share of the trade on
the Paciflc coast. "You have a Royal
City, you can royally entertain. Everything is on a royal scale and I only
hope that the progress of the Westminster council will keep pace wltb'
that of thai city."

WHY NOT A SECOND
HULL ON ERASER ?
HONEST MAN'S PASSPORT
TO AVOID POLICE ATTENTION
Large Profits in the Match Making Industries���Eddy, of Hull,  Made
Millions Out of Matches.
A few weeks ago attention was
drawn in thtse columns to the establishment of an Important new Industry iu Biitish Columbia. Thc reference was to the works of the Dominion Match Company, In course of
erection at New Westminster. Since
then the enterprise has been widely
advertised. Our representatives have
met with lemarkable success in their
campaign for the sale of stock in B.C.
The fact of the matter is that the
public aie well aware that matchmaking Is a profitable enterprise and
caters for the millions. We have before us in Canada, one of the best object lessons In the world in the phe
nomenal success which attended the
ventures of the late Mr. Eddy at Hull.
It is not loo much to say that Eddy
"made" Hull and Hull "made" Eddy.
Indeed, It "made" hlm at least four
rimes, speaking fiom a financial standpoint, and finally "made" him past all
unmaking. There ls no reason why
New Westminster should not become
a second Hull, for the manufacture of
matches provides employment for an
enormous number of hande, and although manual labor is reduced to a
minimum in the process used by the
Dominion Match Company, the enterprise will still mean the development
of a large and prosperous community.
As to what it will mean for the stockholder, time alone cau tell, but with
the best match, the best, machines,
and good management, there Is no
reason why it siiould not reap handsome prollts, pay large dividends, and
greatly enhance the price of the
stock.

L.  AVORY  WHITE,
Secretary  Board of School  Trustees, j
New Westminster, B.C. i
New York, May 14.���It Is very annoying to an honest workingman to
be falling constantly Into the Clutches
of wideawake guardians of the peace
and taken to the police station as a
suspicious character. That has been
the lot of Ralph Fisher, 26 years old,
of 552 West Fifty-fourth street, whose
duties in connection with a smoke-
consuming apparatus take him out all
houps of the night!
But all that will be changed now,
for Fisher Is guaranteed immunity
from the police through a s;>ecia!
edict of Police Commissioner Waldo.
The commissioner has issued him a
passport which conveys the Information to Inquisitive patrolmen that
Fisher is on duty bent when he ls ob
served scurrying along the stieets at
night with a bag of tools in his hand
His Ability Brings Trouble.
Fisher carries a kit of implements
comptising eight drills, two hammers,
one "dutchman," an - assortment o!
punches anl an electric drill, and he
said that with these tools he coulc
bore into a safe without the least bit
of trouble. It is Just this abillt>
which lie possesses that has been getting the young mechanic into so mucb
trouble.
Two nights ago, for the sixteenth
time, he was stopped by a vigilant
policeman and taken to the police sta
tlon its a suspicious character. Hc
had to prove an alibi through a lettei
which lie carries from his concern antl
by telephoning to the hotel wheie ht
was to work, before he could leave
the station house. In most of the sta
tlons, however, the lieutenants have
come to know Fisher, as he is such
a frequent visitor.
Arrested First Time Out.
.When Fisher appeared befoie Police Commissioner Waldo, In search o'
some kind of protection, he explained that the first time he started ou'
on the Job with the foimidable as
soi tment of tools he carries, he had
not been on the stieet ten minutes-
before he was stopped by a police
man, who wanted to know where he
was going. -
"To do a Job," replied the yotin;.
man.
"Xct lf I can present it." assert.ee
the patrolman, and hustled his captive
off to the police station, where he
was released in a few minutes.
The commissioner listened to oth
ers of the adventures ol" Fisher am
then smilingly issued him the firs
nassroi t ever given out by the depart
ment. At the same time he express
ed himself as highly pleased with thr
vigilance of his men. but said that he
was sorry that their alertness had
caused the young man so much annoy
ance.

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, they mado a brew
of Sage leaves, and applied it to their
hair with wonderfully beneficial effect
Nowadays we don't havo to resort to
the old-time tiresome method of gathering the herbs and making the tea. This
is done bv skillful chemists better than
we could do it ourselves; and all we
have to do is to call for the ready-made
product, Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur
Hair Remedy, containing Sage in the
proper strength, with the addition of
Sulphur, another old-time scalp remedy.
This preparation gives youthful color
antl beauty to the hair, and is one of
the best remedies you can use for dandruff, dry, feverish, itching scalp, and
falling hair. Get a fifty cent bottle
from your druggist todav, and you will
bo surprised nt the quick results. All
druggists sell it, under guarantee that
the money will be refunded if the
remedy is not exactly as renresented.

The dramatic season is now io full
swing in London., and from a score
of theatres long queues of theatre-
.goers proclaim nightly, according to
the ingeniously devised custom of wily
London managers, the comparative
popularity of tire piece within.
The theatre-queue is not unknown,
of course, in Canada. The stellar at-
'tiai'tion'ot a'great name on the (boards
.provokes the appearance of the same
weary snake line. Pale yooiig men
prcd the corners of open books into

���peeking stage, college students lean
against'the wall .with ostentations unconcern���and the doors don't opeu
for an  hour yet,  worse  luck.
In London, however, tills sort rrf
tiling is a nightly occurr-nce. Here it
is not the desire of a manager to'give
fai ��� piny for a spe iai attraction at
his theatre/by preventing leisured folk
from buying out all the seals in the
"celestial balcony" beforehand. It is
a frank device he adopts to advertise
liis attraction; for many a London
playgoer*, unhappily for the critics,
thinks more of a long queue, which
hs can see, than he does of a long
..criticism, which be may not understand. Thus it is that tla luckless.

SOOT LOSS !N ENGLAND.
MW.tttO Tons of Coal Wasted Every
Year.
On a coal consumption of 1,12,000.000
tons in the United Kingdom, there is
a loss in b >ot of at bast 2,420,000 tons.
Thn w-s the estimate given by Prof.
3. B. Cohen and A. G. Huston at a
late meeting of chemists in Leeds,
and is based on determinations showing a minimum loss in soot ol 0.5 per
cent, on the 32,000,000 to i burned
in domestic fires.
Various experiments liave shown a>i
nverage deposit of soot over the whole
of-Leeds of at least 320 tons annually
per wjiidi-j mile. 'J hew is a great con-
t;ration of soot where the air is most
polluted, however, and glass plates
exposed in the centre of Leeds became coated with about twenty-four
times as much tarry soot as iu a
locality nine miles away.
The black deposit covers vegetation
wit's * kind of varnish, checking trans-
piration and assimilation, eighty per
cent, of the stomata of the leaves of
some conifers becoming completely
choked with tar. The solid particles,

One  For the Doctor.
With Home Kule so much in the
air, tbe following story may not be
without interest.
Ia a debating society in the West
of lreiand one of the leading members, a local doctor, who was a keen
Unionist in politics, was fond of initiating debates on political questions,
particularly o.i home rule. On one
occasion be delivered himself of a
virulent harangue upon tnat topic,
liis principal opponent iti the wordy
war being a wonting man.
In the course ot his speech the doe-
tor declared that the Irish people
were not tit to be trusted with home
rule, as they vote not even honest.
"1 can prove it!'*" shouted the doc-
tot, defiantly.
"Proof! Proof 1" was the general
cry.
"Well," said tbe medico, "1 once
practiced in a worlting-cla.-s district,
and had over a hundred Irish patients
on my books. >,o\v, out of that number, how many do you -think paid
nie?"
"We don't know, but we're willing
tc> tako your word for il," i-aid tli^i
working man.
"Only ten," returned the doctor,
impressively. "Now," lie continued,
turning triumphantly to his op,,onen:,
"can you explain that?"
"It's aisily endogll explain d," returned the' unabashed Hibernian,
without       ft'      moment's       hesitation.
'"ihare was only tin oi thim Kundotcd
patients  of   vinirs  recovered."
The discomiiU-l medico subsided
amid a general road of kud and pro.
ponged Icughtet.
COAL A PENNY A TO-'.
RcmarHa-le  Shipwreck  Cales  Which
Hive Occurred.
Coal at under a penny a ton! And
540 tons of it at this price, too! This
is the price that eral was actually
sold for in Scarborough iti January,
when the price for ordinary coal in
London was 30s. a ton. it happened
thus way. The Steamer John Lay [eft
Newcastle-on-Tyr.e for Great Yarmouth with a cargo of coal, but encountered severe weather and went
ashore at Scarborough, where she became a wreck. The coal was scattered
on the rocks, anil at the sale by auction it only fetched 30s. for the whole
540 tons. Of course, the coal had to
be collected from the rocks, but even
if only half of it was recovered, the
buyer, ufter paying for the collection
of it, should have made a nice profit.
The ship John Kay itself, wliich, before sbe struck the rocks, was a good,
seaworthy steamer, and cost some
thousands of pounds to build, was
sold for only ��8S.
This, however, is not so remarkable
as an incident that occurred at a sale
of a wrecked ship some little time ago.
The following is the story of what
actually happened. A large sailing
ship went ashore, and, after all atten.pts to tow her off had faiied, u
sale was held of the ship and contents. It was held in th? nearest village, and. although the sale had been
advertised, only a few people from the
village attended the sale. The ship
and everything on board was offered
in one lot. and was bought by a villager for ��17. A few minutes after
the ship had been sold a large number
of people arrived who had been delayed by a train being late. Many of
them, ol course, had commissions to
buy the ship at a very much higher
prica than the ��17 which tne villager
liad paid for it. Tlieir annoyance ou
hearing wdiat had occurred may be
imagined. The villager who had
bought the ship was sought for, and
in a few minutes he had sold the
ropes and spars on the ship for ��10!);
while the ship itself and the other
various goods and fitting on board
were soon bought by other people, aud
in a few minutes the villager had
made quite a fortune, wliich, in the
ordinary course of events, would not
have been accumulated in a lifetime.
Many other bargains have beeu
picked up at the sale of wrecked vessels, but things do not alv ays happen
like this, for . t one saie a few week-
ago a number cf steel sa.' i were sold
wliich had been under water f< r nearly a year, and it wis surprising to
find that tbe price they (etched was
almost ns much as new safes of the
same sort could have b3en bought for.
SIXTY INDICTMENTS WILL

Real Thing Didn't Suit.
| The following story is told of ?ii
Henry Irving when he produced the
play  "Peter  the  Great":
I It appears that at a rehearsal of the
play in question at the Lyceum Then
���tre in London a wonderful climax bad
been reached, which was tn be heightened by the effective use of tbe usual
thunder aid lightning. The stage carpenter was given the ordt.. The word*
were spoken, and instantly a noNe
which resembled a succession of pistol shots was heard off the wiiiir-;.
"What on earth are you doing, menr"
sltoutod Sii- Henrv, rushing behind tbe
scenes.    "Do you call that thunder?
I a. .- not a bit like it."
I "Awfully S'.rrv, sir," responded the
carpenter,   "b-.t   th1?   fact is,  sir, I
; couldn't hear you because of \he
storm.   Tliat was real thunder, sir!"
Great  Guns of OH.
We are accustomed to think of large

*, Yet   as   long   ago   as  1543   a   certain

' sex, cast large guns, and a pupil ot
his,  Thomas  Johnson, ^u  1595  made
for the Karl of Cumberland "forty-two
t cast pieces of great ordnance of iron."
. These   weighed   C.OOO' pounds���three
tons���apiece  and,  we are  told, showed   very   fine,   smooth   workmanship.
j All the smelting was done with charcoal, of which  it took three tons to
' smelt each ton of iron.   Also all the
'oie   was   carted   from   the   mine   oil

Unusual Incident in Murder Trial.
Lord Justice Kennedy is one of the
best-liked member of tin British
bench.
The eldest son of a country parson,
Rev. Win. J. Kennedy, vicar of Barn-
wood, he was called to the Bar in
1:71, und was made a judge of the
High Court in lc!9'2. He has b;-en a
Lord Chief Justice in tbe Court of
Appeal   since  1907..
His lordship was confronted with a
very embarrassing incident while
traveling his first circuit in 1S92. Almost the first case the newly-appointed judge had to try was one for murder. During the luncheon interval
one of the jurymen separated from Iin
fellows to write and despatch a letter.
No such incident had before occurred during a murder trial. Uncertain
as to the bc-t course to take, liis
lordship haste icd to London to consult the lata Lord Coleridje, who then
occupied the o.hce of Lord Chief Justice. The result of the consultation
waj that the offending juryman was
fined $251 and the case retried before
another   jury.

Snuff taking was practically unknown in England until 1702. In that
year Sir Geo. Rooke burnt the French
and Spanish shipping anchored in the
port of Vigo and sacked the town. Besides large quantities of bullion and
jewels, his booty included fifty tons
of the finest snuff, which was brought
to England and thrown on the market
at a very low price. This novel form
of taking tobacco rapidly caught nn,
and in a few years the snuffbox had to
a large extent ousted the pipe. Connoisseurs used to accumulate special
blends of snuff as nowadays they
hoard choice cigars. When George IV.
died the contents of his snuff cellar
were sold for $2,000.���London Globe.  '

WATERFRONT DEVELOPMENT.
It is welcome news that a large
���English company with a capital of
$250,000 is coming tn this city to develop the waterfront. English capital
is valuable to any city. Where the
flrst instalment comes from, there is
ailways plenty more available If the
llrst investment proves profitable.
Moreover capital from London is generally devoted to sound business and
not to purely speculative proceedings.
ln this case we have little doubt
but that the Investment will prove
profitable. It has long been the complaint along the Fraaer that wharfage
accommodation was' scarce. Still more
acute wns tho lack of warehouses. According to statements made in the
council on .Monday night, the company
means to build a wharf at least. 50
liy 400 feet and a warehouse 42 by
200 feet. Onoe the harbor plans of
the city are definitely announced
these preliminary intentions may lie
largely increased.
Announcements such ns tbis will
probably be iu order now duiing the
coming months. The eyes of the Industrial world are beginning to turn
towards Westminster. If the city at
ibis point were to undertake an extensive and systematic advertising
campaign, tliere Is no doubt that within a very short time she could show
to the C. N. H. and any other railway
looking for Pacific terminals such
arguments In her own favor as woul I
convince the very stupidest of railway
men.

Philadelphia, May 14.���Against the
potential benefits which the Panama
Canal will oSTer to American commerce, but to avail which little has
so far been done by tlie people of the
United States, Europeans are preparing to hoKI their own in the valuable
South American trade. Hritish steamship interests have just conclude.l a
most important deal to that end.
Tlie Hoyal Mail Steam Packet Company has taken o\er all the ships and
good will of the I'nion Castle Steamship Company, paying in cash $25,367,-
Sli'.f for the capital stock ot fhlB faW , .  .,,    ..,     ,���.  . ��� .

and a quarter times the par value ot | ���~���.���afa���
the stock, besides wbich the managers
I of the line were paid nearly $8,600,000
tor retiring from the steamship business.
The importance of this deal lies in
the fact that it biings under one management virtually all British steamship lines engaged in the South American trade. It makes the Royal Mall
Steam Packet Company the largest ip
the world, giving it control of 2(15
ships, with an aggregate tonnage of
1,380,670 tons. The next largest ship
combination is the Hamburg-American
with ships having a total of 1.210,000
tons. The Intel national Mercantile

There can be no denying the fact
that the record successes of the M. C.

County Championship last season
have both given a tremendous fillip to
Ihe game. Furthermore, the presence
of both the Australians and South Africans in Kngland leads one to think
that 1912 wlll be the rpcord season

the end of last season. When the
most hot-headed partisans of other
candidates, however, had cooled down
.somewhat they all admitted that this
'surprise packet" was an excellent
thing for the game. It certainly stlr-
red up the good citizens of Birmingham, who for some time had rather
boycotted the county ground at Edg-

hear that Longfellow was one of the

that was out on the coast playing for

unsuccessful attempt to get into the
Coast, league. They were given two
tilals, one with this city and one wltb
Vancouver, and were beaten somewhere In the neighborhood of 12-3 and
12-2. Longfellow was not thought
pood enough by the coast lacrosse
magnates even to get a tryout. Now
he's a star in the Big Four. The only-
way In which the Big Four have Improved over the N. L. U. of last season ls In the advertising end of the

Teddy Tetzlaff holds the record of
driving a motor longer and faster
tban any human being tn history.
"There were only three times during the Santa Monica race when I was
woi ried," said Tetzlaff, after the races.
"The first time was when I passed
Barney Old.le'd on the Palisades.
"I knew that I had only Oldfield to
beat, as his car had shown greater
speed than any other car In the race
and 1 felt if I could pass him I would
have a good show.
"In tbe flret lap I could not catch
Oldfield.    I  could see him    ahead of
me on the  long  Nevada  stretch and
saw him   puss the flrst of the   two
Stutz cars.   1 played my best hand ln
the second lap when I passed the two
Stutz cars and saw Barney vanishing
uround the "S" shaped bend at Sol-
diets' Home.   I came Into this bend a
ouarter of a mile back of him.   I realized that I would' get him, lf at all, on
the long stretch of the Palisades.
125 Miles an Hour.
"The oil on the road had been scattered too plentifully and I had to drive
to one   sl 'e to give my wheels   the
traction necessary.   I opened up to 100
miles an hour and was perhaps within 100 feet   of Oldflelds, but he also
opened up.   About half way down the
stretch I tramped on the throttle and
saw that I was making one hundred
and twenty-flve miles an hour or more
than two miles per mlhute.  1 began to
draw up on Oldflelds, and, as he was
using one  side of the road for the
same purpose as I was using the other side, I had p'enty of room to so by.
I crept up on him very slowly and I
guess Barney must have been making
close to one hundred and twenty-flve
miles, but  Just t-efore I got    to the
curve coming Into Ocean Boulevard I
got by him andr I knew that my car
was working, i et fectly. <
The nen time I became won led
was after the two-h'jn.lred-mile raarlc.
I began to feel the strain nnd. my
arms and shoulders became numb
from the effort In controlling the ma
chine at this speed. I was not worded very much as to the results, for
I had figured that I was in perfect
physical condition, was a bigger man
than Caleb Bragg and had more
speed than Brown, as I had passed
Old.-.eld I felt as safe as could be, for
1 knew that if I was tired the pthers
were also tired.
His  Second  Wind.
Then I discovered something that is
new with me, although it may be old
with other long-distance drivers. I
found that I began to jst my second
wind the same as a runner who becomes tired and winded and then
gradually gets his second wind which
lasts indefinitely.
The last time I was worried was
when I began the last lap. The track
was In the most dangerous condition
of any upon which I had ever driven a
high-powered 'car. Too much oil had
been poured over lt. or. perhaps the
tei rifle speed and the weight of the
cars ln their loir, grind had brought
the oil to the surface. Anyway, I
found that the oil was making the
turns very dangerous as my rear
wheels would not hold to the.ground.
I had found this trouble when I had
hit lt up to 125 miles per hour on the
{ Palisades in passing Oldfield.
Wheels Slipping, i
When I passed the grandstand on
my last lap I found my wheels slipping, so I took the Inside of the
toad, which jave me the hardest turn
to make. As I slowed down to sixty
miles I felt the rear wheels slipping
and I made a shift to take the bend
at a different angle than before during
the lone race. I cannot explain what
happened exactly, but 1 think that I
had become attuned to the swing
and motion of the car at its great
speel  and   the  sudden   change  from
my swinging around the carves
threw both the car and myself out
of alignment and while I bad time to
shoot on down Ocean Boulevard on
the straightaway I took a chance on
the load being less oily than on the
other parts and swung the head of the
machine Into Nevada avenue.
There was too much oil on the road
and the rear en.I slewed cldar across
thc road an.l on to the sharp-cut
stone of the side. The shaip end of
the stone cut through my right-hand
reai- Ui e, blowing it- out. I was
forced to >iay all of my attention to
my steering wheel and, of course, shut
off m.v engine. I got the head of tbs
machine away from the iron railing
and tbe rear end Just scraped it.
Bragg Passed Him.
W'e changed a tire and had to try
twice to crank the engine, as It is a I
bad thing to stop an engine in the middle of a gieat piece of work it is doing. We got away In about one minute
and only Caleb Bragg passed me. I j
got him a^ ain before I had completed
the last lap and the race was over.
I think that I could have gone 500
miles at the same speed as I main-1
tained a week ago Saturday with my
engine working as perfectly as it did
then, and also feeling as well as I
did physically.
The next morning I still had that
roaring in my ears, and I was worried
about it, and Mrs. Tetzlaff told me
the best tonic I could 'get for, lt was to
go- out to the motorlrorae and spent
an hour or so hearing the familiar
sound, and it has worked like a
charm."
Tetzlaff will ship his Fiat to Indlana-
oplls today, and is endeavoring to arrange his affairs to leave Tueeday, but
may not be able to leave until later
ln the week.

SOCIETY   WOMAN   FALL8   TO
DEATH   FROM   WINDOW
Portland, Or., May 14.���Mrs. Perry
McDonald Fuller, prominent society
woman, whose husband ls a member
of the 'railway contracting firm of Fuller & Bain, fell three stories from a
win,low ln her apartments at the
WIckersham, at Eighteenth and Flankers stieets, this afternoon, and sustained Injuries that resulted In her
death Uo hours later. How the ac-
c Ident occurred Is a mystery. No
one wus In the room at the time.
Mr:;. Fuller was an invalid and hnd
heen 111 r?r nearly a year. It ls believed tliat she went to tho window
und wliile there waB attacked by a
liiintlng spell that cauac.l her to fall
hack wind.
The fa" was Been by u Klrl lu the
apartment! across the street, who
gnve the alarm.
Joseph Hammond, a salesman for
I un tiiian and Thompson, who has
apurtments with hls father at the
WIckersham, heard Mrs, Fuller strike
the ground.
Mrs, Fuller's injuries show that she
sttuck on her head. Several ribs on
her Huh! side we:e bro'.'.en and one
of her lilies wns injured. The inter-
mil Injuries, it ls believed, caused her
death, ,
When she was flrst picked un Bhe

uny one. At. that time she utterod a
lew words, among them the name of
her husband.
Mr. Fuller was In Eugene when the
accident occurred, He reached thc

THZ IRISH COURT?.
Erin's Son   Dearly  Loves To  Escape
By an Alibi.
"Sons cf tl.> Lmerald isle." says
Mr. William Harvey in Irish Lite
and Humor, have much faith in the
practice of proving an alibi.
"An Irish barrnter, who was evidently prepared for every ossitls contingency, is alleged to liave addressed
the presiding judge as follows: 'Your
honor, I shall first absolutely prove to
the jury that the, prisoner could .lot
have committed thc crime with which
he is charged. II that does not convince the jury I shall show that he
waj insane when he committed it.
ti that fails I shall prove an alibi!'
Om wonders how a jury could get
uway trom a verdict of 'not guilty' in
such circumstances, and yst it is prob-
able that if the trial had taken place
in Edinburgh the verdict would have
been no more than one of 'not proven.'
"Pat h��s usually a very clear idea
of the meaning of an alibi, although
h�� may not Le able to express himself in very lucid terms. During a
recent trial the judge interposed in
the course of ths examination and asked the witness if he knew wl at was
meant by an alibi.
' 'Yes, to be sure I do, yer honor,'
promptly   answered   the  witness.
" 'Tell me, then,' said the judge,
'what you understand by it?'
"'Sure.' said Pat, 'it's just like this
���it's up to be afther proving that ye
wasn't where ye was when ye committed a crime that, sure, ye never
committed afther all.'
"There was more humor anl equal
truth in the definition given on another occasion. The prise ner was trying to explain to a judge and jury
his innocence of a certain crime. 'It's
not meself,' he said, 'as'Jl be afther
thrying to desave yer honors. I didn't hit the poor dead gintleman at all,
at all. It was him that sthruck the
blow, and the exartion killed him, and
what's more, I wasn't there at the
time.'
" 'I perceive,' observed the judge,
'you are trying to prove afi alibi.'
"'An al-!oi-boi!' exclaimed the
prisoner, evidently pleased at the big
word l>eing suggested to strengthen
his   defence.
" 'Yes,' said the judge. 'Can you
tell me what is a good alibi?'
" 'Faith, yer honor,' replied the
prisoner, 'and it's a loi boi which the
prisoner j,ets off.' " /
Shortly after Mr. Wilson Barrett
first joined the theatrical profession,
he became a member of a company
performing at the old Theatre Koyal,
Dublin. ' His part naturally wa> a
small one, and Mr. Barrett had no
expectation whatever of receiving any
signs of approval from the audience
Greatly to his surprise, however, his
lirst speech was greeted wil.i a round
of applause.
This unlooked-for tribute quite elated the young actor, and he exerted
himself to the Utmost in the endeavor
to sustain tha good impre.-sion he appeared to have made. He succeeded
even beyond'his hopes, safs Mr. Harvey. Everything he said or did was
rapturously applauded, and the principal performers were thrown completely into the shade. The "stars"
were, of course, disgusted, and the
rest of the company lost in amazement���none more so than young Barrett* himself.
He scarcely supposed that he quite
deserved such an ovation, but with
the natural vanity of youth ho considered that these Dublin folk showed a rare appreciation of budding
spirit.
Just as he was leaving the theatre,
however, one of the scene-shifters accosted him.
"Sure ye wor cock o' the walk tonight, sir!"
"Well, yes, Micey." returned the
actor, with pardonable pride, "1 think
I knocked 'em a bit���eh?"
"Och, sir," said Mickey, "sure it
wasn't that at all. at all! But it's
got ahout among the bhoys that ye're
a brother o' the man that was hung
this morning!"
A Fenian named Barrett had that
morning paid the extreme penalty of
the law.
Monocles In the English Army.
About a Century ago a Hritish Rrmy
order was issued forbidding officers
to wear eyeglasses or sp?ctacles. But
a shortsighted ntticer belonging to a
crack cavalry regiment hi 1 no mind
II resign his commission or stumble
blindly, and he invented the single
eyeglass. When called It aVeount by
tin authorities he claimed that the
monocle, being of the singular number, did not contravene the order
against spectacles and glasses in the
plural. Red tape accepted this literal
renderiij of the law. and, becoming
pr.-ular in the British army, the mon-
o<- was in a short time adopted by
civilian  beaus.���London Globe.
AFRICAN SUPERSTITI

White 'Civilization.
The Cape to Cairo and other adventurous re'ways whieh are now
tnrusting their relentless steel tentacles daily deeper and deeper into
regions where until a comparatively
few years ago a white man was Mr
Tara avis, are rnpidly familiarizing
the native with the steam e/igine.
lt had an appalling effect on King
Cetewayo, who was brought to England at the close of the Zulu war.
The never-ceasing How of London's
trafTic, and its accompanying rour and
bustle, used to make the poor oil
monarch quake with terror, but a
steam-engine rushing full tilt into a
station on the Underground demoralized him lo such an extent that lie
ii.continently fled from the sulphurous
monster and nothing would. induce
him to return. He and four Zulu satellites, by the way, are credited with
having slaughtered and eaten a whoie
sheep in the drawing-room of the ex-
potentate's apartments near Hyde
Park.
Strange to say, the wheels of our
railway carriages mystified the late
Shah of Persia more than anything
else. His contention was that if they
were to stop suddenly, the rest of the
train would go on, and there would be
a ghastly smash-up. It was he who.
when at the theatre witnessing a
Shakespearean revival, sent a message to Juliet, intimating that ff she
would only give Romeo the cold shoulder and transfer her affections to
him, he was quite ready and willing to
give the sum of ?25,000 for her.
Balloons and lifts have proved endless sources of wonder to foreign potentates from savage climes, but one
sable monarch ��� hailing frcm New
Zealand, if the writer's memory
serves him correctly ��� derived perpetual amusement and delight from ���
what do you think? ��� tlie ordinary
every day. or rather every night, opera
hat! All the white man's supernatural machinations were as naught
compared to this miracle, and His
Majesty was quite content to spend
the whole day and a good part of the
evening opening and shutting liis
Gibus.
Probably no more ignorant race of
wl.its people exists than the Boers of
the "back-blocks." On being mad)
prisoners during the war, they wer-J
sent down to the coast, and the remarks made by some of them on he-
holding the sea for the first time were
decidedly unique. The largest piece
of water any of them hnd previously-
cast eyes on was generally some inland swamp or "vlei," which, although perfectly dry for part of the
year, would present some resemblance
to a lake during the rainy season.
One of these pastoral individual!1,
when the vast expanse of the South
Atlantic burst upon his astonished
gaze, ejaculated "Allema.iitig! Does
this vlei ever get dry?"
The writer has a particularly vivid
recollection of astonishing one native
to an extent that exceeded the wildest
anticipations.
lt was in the time of unrest just
''befn' de wah," and on opening the
front door of our lonely African homestead one morning just after sunn**-.
I discovered DmVxmga sitting dejectedly before the stoep. After tbe customary "Saku bunas," I asked wbat
was tne matter. Umbonga said he
wasn't at all well, and could I give
him some "muti" (medicine): I said
"Certainly." and went inside for a
box of seidlitz powders I had had Up
from Durban. Taking thr:: blue ones
and three white ones for a Zulu hm
a cast iron interior), I dissolved them
in separate pannikins. Then, on a
mischievious impulse, instead of mixing the contents of the two pannikins
and causing the effervescence, I gave
ii - ��� pannikin to Umbonga. He emptied it instanter. Then 1 gave hint
the other, and the circus began!
What the effervescence in his internal ecoiviiy felt like I know not, hut
the outwerd and visible effects were
really wonderful to behold. Umbonga.
after a huze gasp of astonishment and
terror, emitted a horrible yell, sprang
high up in the air, came down flat on
his stomach, and at the top of his
voice invoke.! the "Inkosi pezulu"
(Great Chief Above) atid all Uie saints
in the Zulu calendar to deliver him
from this iurioas. Hating devil that
had taken posse;sion of his inside!
To the dispassionate observer, it was
literallv  screamingly  funny.
When the effervescence finally subsided. Umbonga slowly rose to hie
feet, cast one glance of unspeakible
reproach at my guilty self, and fled
ti lus kraal.

Liberal  Promises.
Sir Krnest Shackleton is telling the
stiry of an Arctic explorer who approached the Chancellor of thc Exchequer to raise kinds for a new voyage,
lt came out that among the subscriptions already received was tha
sum of ��50 from the Stoc'.: Exchange.
"Why so little from that house?" asked Mr. Llovd-George. The explorer
hesitated. The Chancellor insisted-
"Well, the house'has promised more
on conditions." "What conditions?"
"Another ��10,000 if I took you with
me to the Pole; and a fui ther ��100,-
000 if I would leave you there."
Dog In Workhouse.
It is a well-known fact that during
tha course of a year all sorts and conditions find their way to the casual
wards of British workhouses, but surely something of a record in this respect has been established by thc
Sudbury (Suffolk) Board 0 Guardians.
At the last meeting of that body the
master reported that a dog had been
admitted into the workhou.se. lt came
with one of the vagrants, and was
"discharged" the following morning
without any taskwork being allotted
to it.
