Salmon Canners of South West Alas
ka Confer on  Situation at

Vancouver, July 11,���An Interesting
conference took place at Seattle on
Tuesday, when leading salmon cannery operators ot Southwestern Alas-
met to decide what prices they will
pay to fishermen in the north this
season, and how. they will handle the
fishermen's strike there. This strike
is now quite extensive, especially on
and around Prince of Wales Island,
where severa 1 canneries will be kept
idle until the demand of the native
and white fishermen for 20 cents
apiece for red (ish is settled. The
conference promises to be a lengthy
one.
The situation   confronting' the cannery men la not altogether a new one, I
similar Strikes having been attempt-1

Tenino stone combined with brick
from Clayburn, B.C., wiil go into tbe
imposing front of the new Tipperary
park High school, according to the
discussion of the trustees laat evening. Tbis means an additional expense of about $3000 over and above
the $73,000 contract already held by
Messrs. Adkinson and Dill.
With the settlement of thla important item in the construction of the
High school the agreement between
the school board and the contractors,
who have been awaiting the decision,
may now be signed and the work proceeded with immediately.
When a report was read from Fire
Chief Watson concerning a recent inspection which he had held at the
Lord Kelvin and Central schools,
Chairman Trapp remarked that he did
not consider that the action of the
chief in turning in an alarm when
the children were writing their examinations had materially raised their
averages. The flre chief, wlll be
communicated with.
Mr. Peck said that it had been suggested that lf smoke was made in the
buildings the children would be trained to act as in a fire: Trustee Reid
thought this would be a dangerous
proceeding as the children might
stampede and someone might be
killed. The matter was shelved for
consideration at a future meeting.
The aecretary was instructed to
convey the disapproval of the board
to the city council for its action in
expropriating a portion of the Sapperton school grounds tor a road allowance without first communicating wltb
the trustees.
Sixteen applications from vocal Instructors were considered to fill the
post of singing teacher. Three of
these- were selected and the secretary
was Instructed to get In touch with
the applicants in order to have them
appear before the board at tbe next
meeting.
The sitting continued untU, attei

Senior Amateurs Go Tonight���Deny
Professional.
The Senior Amateur twelve will
leave this evening for Victoria where
on Saturday afternopn they will clash
with the team of that city. The local
aggregation was selected on Wednesday evening, and will meet at the B.
C K. It. depot at S:45 in order to connect with the evening boat from Vancouver.'
They expect a hard game at the
Capital City as the Victorias are
known as a tough team to beat' on
their own grounds. According to the
Victoria Colonist, the game which
the locals won against Victoria playing on Queens park, will not count In
the league standing on account of an
alleged professional being on the
Westminster team.
When seen last evening, Manager
Grimston emphatically denied any
such assertion, and stated that if the
club had been guilty cf such a move,
tt would render tbe whole team professional. , -    M

Regina, July 11.���The Scott government achieved a sweeping victorjt^o-
day, carrying the polls by large majorities. The Liberals gained 40 seats,
the Conservatives carried 14 seats.
The defeat of the Conservatives
was decisive and complete. Former
Conservative strongholds such ,\,
Souris, Pipestone, Last Mountain,
j Moose Mountain and Pheasant Hills,
| returned supporters to the government by substantial majorities.
In four city seats the opposition
held its own fairly well, splitting even
by holding Moose Jaw and Prince Albert, the Liberals holding Regina aud
Saskatoon.
Influence of Farmers.
In the constituencies, however, the-'
Liberals showed several gains, farmers appearing to recognize the question ot larger markets (whlcj�� were
such prominent features in the campaign) as of paramount importance,
in as much as throughout the' campaign the opposition levied no criticism at the record and policy of ttie
government.
Mr. Haultain himself had a very
narrow win ln South Qu'Appelle, the
final result tonight giving him a majority of 20 only. Two of hit chief
lieutenants, Elliott and Giles, both
went down to defeat.
Tremendous interest was taken in
the result ln the capital and throughout tbe province. In the city as soon
as the reaulf was definitely known the:
Liberals organized an impromptu procession and with bands playing paraded the streets. Tomowt^W***!

PANAMA CANAL BILL.
Britain Wlll Present Note of Hsr Objections.
Washington. July 11.���Great Britain has taken the extraordinary step
of asking for the holding up of a bill
concerning the Panama Canal until
the British ambassador may present
to this government a note of the objections Great Britain   has   to   the
bill.
The gravity of the situation as
viewed by Great Britain may be imagined from the manner and method
'taken to bring her attitude on the operation of the canal to the attention
of this government.
It Is not known just what the communication may be that ls to be presented by the British ambassador. It
Is not supposed that there is any Intention or desire on the part of Great
Britain to delay action by congress on
the canal, but yet the proposal for diplomatic consideration of the questions
Involved Implies that there may be
such a protracted discussion of the
use ot the canal as to postpone all legislation -on Uie canal to another sea*!

London, July 11.���Rt. Hon. R. L.
Borden made au historic speech last
night at a record-breaking gathering
of the Royal.Colonial Institute before
a company numbering 270, and Including representatives of the whole empire. With measured dignity, Mr. Bor1
den enunciated the Canadian policy,
and deeply, impressed tbe many British parliamentarians present. When
he pronounced emphatically that Canada stood for "One King, One Flag,
One Empire and One Navy," the
cheering was vociferous and long continued. The applause was renewed
when Mr. Borden added that not one
Jot of Canada's duty won autonomy
would be sacrificed. Perhaps the two
most Impressive passagea of the
speech were a tribute to French-Canadian loyalty and the reference to the
navy. The premier said that as regards both the Immediate co-operation to meet the present emergency,
and a permanent basis of partnership
ln defense, he would say that Canadian people came ot races that had
never failed to realize and act upon
their responsibilities.
The British public men and men of
long experience who were present
agreed that' no more remarkable demonstration ever greeted a colonial
premier In th!i country than cn the
conclusion cf Mr. Borden's speech. In

Maple Ridge, July 11.���The facilities for cheap power in Maple Ridge
Municipality and the desirability of
establishing industries for Whonnock
was emphasized in a strong addreas
to the Municipal Council by Mr. E. H.
Heaps of Vancouver and Whonnock at
the last meeting of that body.
Mr. Heaps reminded the councillors
that the Vancouver Board of Trade
desired the cutting of the canal from
the Pitt River to Vancouver Harbor
and also the construction of a new
trafTic bridge across the former river.
He advised encouragement being given to tram companies to build lines
connecting with Vancouver, developing a direct communication-with that
city both by rail and water.
As the interests of this district and
of Vancouver were parallel, said Mr.
Heaps, and as all this side of the Fraser was directly tributary to Vancouver, the growth of the one meant the
growth of the other. If any or these
connections were established in any
way, the people of'Maple Ridge would
be immensely benefited, and in all
these little centres new industries
would spring up and prosper.
While these ideas were still fresh
from the lips of Mr. Heaps there was
opened the communication from the
Burnaby Board of Trade, laying hefore the council the Fraser Valley
publicity scheme. The letter received much consideration and discussion.
Acting Reeve Lougheed, liaving been
present at the Fraser Valley publicity
meeting, was asked to tell the councillors what he knew of the benefits
to be obtained in return for the money
asked for.
After listening to Mr. Lougheed it
was seen that the scheme is a most
excellent one for New Westminster
and the district along the south bank
of the V .ser, which is diretly tributary to Westminster alone; but whether it is so likely to prove beneficial
to this district could not be decided
without further consideration. The
communication was filed.

HIGH   SCHOOL   MAGAZINE.
Reflects    Great  Credit   on    Its    Producers.
The holiday number of The Pharos,
the official organ of the students of
the Royal City High School, by whom
It ls edited and managed, Just to
hand, ls a bright, breezy beautifully
illustrated little magazine that would
do credit to men and women with
more experience ln the publication
line than thc youthful journalists who
produce It.
Every branch of school activity is
covered by tho journal, and In the
way of literature lt contains everything from a lively editorial page that
the editor of a metropolitan journal
might well bo proud of, to burlesque
tales of the Wallace Irwin type.
A glance at Its compact and Interesting contents ts evidence sufficient
that some of the poets, authors and
journalists of the future may very
possibly spring from the ranks of the
Westminster High School of today.
On the whole the mazazlne Is an excellent publication, and reflects great
credit, not only on the teachers and
students of the high school, but upon
the city of Westminster as a whole.
Here Is a sample of the editorial effort contained in the journal:
The past year has been a bright
01.3 for all the Btudents of the Royal
��lty High School.   Under an excep
tionally good corps of teachers much
work has been accomplished and the
students , who have done ordinarily
good work may be assured of success.
"The matriculation class ls the largest in the annals of our school and
numbers thirty-four members. Of
these eighteen are boys -and sixteen
are girls, a record unique in itself, for
usually such classes number more
?lrls than boys. The junior claas Ib a
trifle smaller, but the school contains
three rooms of Freshmen, wbo make,
by far, the largest preliminary class
of which the school could ever boast.
This should be a class which the new
High School building may be proud
to graduate."

showing to the best possible advantage and have not apparently suffered
from the hot and dry weather of the
last week ln June. Grain sown on
stubble has suffered somewhat from
the drought.
On lighter soil ln a few districts
some damage was done by the heat
but so far as tho loeal bulk of the
crop is concerned, tbe rains of the
week of July came when most needed.
Already from 30 to 40 per cent of the
wheat is headed out. The recent hot
weather has forced the grain Into the
shot blade a little earlier than was
expected and with continued favorable weather, tlie harvest will be earlier than last year by about two weeks.
Present Indications are that considerably more harvest help wlll be required this ��aKo I t'mn last as the
cultivation If. greater and the outlook
for the crop in jtner.il Is good.
IVANCOUVER CADETS
Off fO 41/SMIA
Visit Will Strengthen Bonds Between
Two Countries���Laughter
and Tears.
Vanoouver, July 11.��� l.uUhd on a
peaceful Invasion ci Australia, but accompanied by all the pomp and glorious circumstance of war, the Vancouver High School Cadets yesterday embarked on the Union Steamship Company's liner Zealandia.
There was a large crowd on the
dock to see them off and by the courtesy of Mr. J. C. Irons, agent for the
steamship line, tbe usual rule preventing visitors aboard the ship and
on the outer end of the dock was rescinded.
It was an animated scene, shaded
with laughter aud pathos, for in the
shouting hundreds were sprinkled silent mothers bravely smothering the
pain of parting and waving a smiling
adieu. It will be three months before
the cadets come home again. ��
No formal proceedings took place
at the ebarkation, the cadets tiling
abcf.rd almost as soon as they reached the dock. The band was stationed
on the shade deck forward and Just
before the ship cast off played "The
Girl I Left Behind Me." while the boat
deck was lined wltb the balance of
the unit waving good-byes. The
shouting and the waving lasted until
the big steamer waa well out Into the
stream and heading for the Narrows.
As a farewell statement to the citizens of Vancouver Captain Davy said:
"I am proud to be at the head of such
a splendid body of young men and we
are proud and grateful for the send-off
t'aat the City of Vancouver has given
us. I believe that our trip will do
much to strengthen the bonds between Canada and Australia and cement the friendly feeling that has always existed between the two countries. You can rest assured that the
cadets wlll be a credit to Canada and
to the City of Vancouver."

A  WAITING   LAND.
In an editorial upon the return pf
lion. W. R. Ross, minister of land3
for British Columbia, the Victoria
Colonist states that the process of
discovering the true resources of the
province proceeds steadily. If it had
been remarked that that process was
exceedingly slow it would have been
equally  correct.
The region traversed by the minister, namely, the upper Fraser valley,
has been fairly well known to residents of. central British Columbia���
that is around the Fort Qeorg'a district- for two er three years, while
an excellent work upon thla very
country v.as last year published in
England by a traveller who passed
through two summers ago.
Yet even this   far   away   country
whicli
by fanners or to be the seat of inn-
strong squadrons to the aid of any of
the colonies or dominions that might
be menaced.
And, he added, that is a duty Britain would, if necessary, unhesitatingly take risks and make sacrifices
to discharge. But as the need to keep
in readiness for the defence of the
csntre of the Empire becomes greater, Mr. Churchill is assured that the
dominions will take on themselves
more and more of the responsibility
for the defence of the outlying portions of the Empire.
That, in his opinion, Is the true division of labor between, the . Mother
Country and her Daughter States. The
exact form these developments will
take he does not attempt to forecast
or prescribe. This, however, he ventured to say. The admiralty sees no
reason why arrangements should not
be made to give to the dominions a
full measure of control over the movements in peace cf any naval forces
which, with Britain's help, they may
bring into efficient existence. "We
know," he said, "that in war our countrymen over the sea's will have only
one wish, and that will be to encounter tlie enemy wherever the need
and the danger is most severe,"

members of parliament of both parties were present, and about fifty
Canadians, among whom were a fair
sprinkling of Liberals. Mrs. Borden,
Mrs. Pelletler and Miss Doherty were
among the ladies present in the gallery. After the banquet both Mr. and
Mrs. Borden were the centre of congratulating friends. Other guests of
honor were Lieut.-Cen. Sir Bevan Edwards, presiding; DuRe of Argyle,
Lord Strathcona, Earl Stanhope, Ad

The toast of "Our Guest" was proposed. The premier, after speaking of
the progress and development of Canada, gave way to more important
questions.
"We have the mandate ofvthe Canadian people to discuss some matters
of great imperial concern. In advance of the discussion it is not to be
expected that I should make any announcement as to our co-operation in

one empire and cne navy, powerful in

the Hag and maintain the empire's existence.
"There are two considerations before us. The lirst touches a possible
immediate gravity under existing conditions. The other touches more difficult and more complex questions ol
co-operation in the Empire's defense
upon the high seas. The second of
these considerations raises in concrete form the questions of the future
constitution of the organization of the
Empire.
"It is of sufficient moment to em-
nasize our view that any great Dominion undertaking to share upon a permanent basis in the sea defense of
the rCmpire must have some voice in
the policy whicli shapes the issues of
war or peace. Canada does not propose to be merely an adjunct even to
the British Empire. She faces the future today with a proud spirit, conscious of her problems, but equally-
conscious of her ability to solve them.
Watchful and patient of her resources, she is determined they sliall
be developed in the interests of her
people.
"Mindful of her opportunities and

play her full part in maintaining the
unity of the Empire in promoting its

Qne cf the muiii data In the problem of Canadian naval policy is the
fact that Canada Is In the British Kmpire, says tin- Toronto Mail. The Laurier Government's navy scheme took

IS DOMINION DAY
TO BE REPEATED ?
Intense  Interest in Saturday's Strug
gle���Hyland May Play���Vancouver Changes.
The seventh g"ame of the B. C. Lacrosse league will take place tomorrow afternoon, and from all Indications a bumper crowd will be on hand
to witness the struggles that the two
contesting teams are indulging in for
the temporary ownership of the fam-
tus Minto cup.
The serious illness of Jimmy Gifford, it is thought, will result In
Harry Hyland being again seen In
uniform playing on the local home.
Just who will fall back on the defence has yet to be settled, nnd the
fans will not be ahleTLo glean anything from Manager Gray as to the
probable line-up until a few minutes
before play commences.
The Vancouver line-up will also
see a change from that of the Domin
lon Day game, McDougall being in
eluded in the team.
The selection of tho green shirts
has been left in the hands of a committee composed of Harry Godfrey.
Newsy Dalonde and Harry Griffith.
Manager Jones decided on this step
a few days ago, and will leave It to
the good judgment of the three players in question to form a team and
stop the winning streak of the Salmon Hellies.
Special attention is being given to
handling a big crowd, and thc ticket
sale up to date is very satisfactory. It
is expected that many of the visiting
Orangemen from the upper country
who invade the city today, will stay
over for the great game, as the report of the doings of the former
champions that have been floating
about in the mountains.
The B. C. E. R. is arranging to
handle a big delegation from Vancouver coming over in special cars. The
citizens of the Terminal City - are
clinging to their team, and have not
given up hopes of retaining the viceregal silverware. As long as the
green shirts havo a chance to win the
series they can be expected to fight
to the last ditch, and Saturday's game
gives every indication of a repetition
of the Dominion Day battle.

played a prominent, part In persisting
in encroaching on the playing patch,

Hon. C. D. deBoucherville, who
celebrated his 90th birthday the other
day, is one of the grand old men of
Canadian public life. He is still hale
and hearty, taking a keen interest in
the recent political contest in his native province.
This venerable old man was Premier
of the Province of Quebec back in the
early 70's. HU dismissal from the
Government by Governor Lettellier is
one of the big historic incidents of
the province and created a large-sized
political controversy for a very considerable period. His administration
was followed by that of Ross, Mous-
seau and Mercier, who rode into power on the Riel excitement and whose
extravagance and scandals later were
the subject of judicial investigation
in the Senate which led to his downfall.
Hon. C. D. deBoucherville was the
man who overthrew the whilom idol
of the Quebec people and shortly
afterwards resigned because the federal Conservative party of that day
appointed Sir Adolphe Chapleau Lieutenant-Governor of Quebec'.. Sturdy
independence has characterized the
political career of this veteran and
as sjcukcr of the Legislative Council,
legislative councillor, Prime Minister
of tlie Province of Quebec and now as
Dominion Senator, he displays the
same spirit and believes in hewing
straight to tho lire whenever a matter
.' piinciple is at stake in public affairs.

WESTMINST&
REVOLUTIONIZED GUNS
NOBLE   SENT   OLD-STYLED   CANNON TO THE SCRAP HEAP.
Sir Andrew, Who Was at the Outset
an Officer In the Royal Artillery,
Is the Man Who Helped Armstrong
to Perfect the Rifled Big Guns and
To-day He Is the Greatest Authority on Explosives.
,-
There have been two remarkable
Nobles, in our day. One spelled his
name "Nobel," and is dead; the other
is Sir Andrew, hale and hearty in a
brave old age. The Curious thing ia
that the name of both stands for disruption, explosions, smash-up of ship,
man, or mountain. Nobel was the
chemist, who invented dynamite and
left a fortune ol two millions, the
interest on wllich, some $300,000 a
year, is divided into five prizes and
award d yearly to heroes of discovery,
invention, literature, and humane
endeavor. The other Noble is the
greatest authority in the world on explosives, and is the man whose guns
upon our Dreadnoughts enable us to
sleep safe in our beds o' nights.
Jne of the most charming plays nnw
running in London, Mr. Arnold Bennett's "Milestones," deals with three
generations in which we see tin passing Irom the old wooden walls to the
flrst ships of iron, and then the disappearance of the iron ship in favor
of the all-steel vessel. The scheme of
the drama might be a chapter out of
Sir Andrew's life, for his all but eighty
years mure than cover the period of
the play, and he has been behind the
scenes in two at least of the great
changes. He iruilt iron ships, and he
has built and armored-gunned still
more steel ships, but so progressive is
his mind that he has never believed
any of them perfect or final.
But it is with the armament rather
than the battleships as a whole that
IT DOESN'T PAY.
flit ANDI'.KW  XOHI.K.-
his genius ha-i been mainly engaged.
Still, as he has for many years been
chairman of the greatest battleship
and gun-founding firm in the world,
we may take it that he knows a little
about battleships. At any rate, he
built the Japanese navy which shattered the maritime power of Russia,
and our little allies think that, next
to Nelson, he is the greatest man that
Grest Britain has ever produced. They
Teturn thanks for victory to the spirits
of their ancestors, but in their heart
of hearts they fancy that Sir Andrew
Noble had rather more to do with
heating the Muscovite than had. all
the  spooks  of  ancestral  Japan.
Sir Andrew comes from Greenock.
His father was a naval captain, but
the son entered the Royal Artillery at
seventeen, and, in six years, without
influence or private friendships, worked his way up to a captaincy. Geniu-
ami the army do not seem to fit. Perhaps the reason is that we possess m
War Offlce which has a reputation t<>
live down to. The War Offlce has
been the great unintentional humorist
of the Empire, and it used to display
an unequalled gift for suppressing
talent. But young Noble ciuld not
be suppressed. He had tlie mind nf h
chemist as well as of a soldier. Hi
knew not only how to fire a gun, but
how to make the stuff that discharge-1
it, and how to make that said stuff
better. Such a condition of knowledge is rather alarming in s young
soldier, and ho must have seriously
stirred the War Ollice mind, fur when
they appointed a committee to con-
sider the supercession of the old
smooth-bore cannon, what must thoy
do but appoint him, then only five
and twenty, secretary of this important body,
Of course the tests applied madi-
out the overwhelming superiority of
the rifled cannon, and Armstrong, the
inventor, went to young Noble and
said. 'Quit the Government service
nnd throw in your lot with us." And
Noble did.
The man who won^ to assist Lord
Armstrong became the chairman of the
company, and under his guidance and
fine administrative ability it developed into the greatest private enterprise
in the kingdom, with an industrial
army of over 20,000 men, and premises extending over 110 acres. He
has built guns and ships for the world,
and holds 'decorations from nesrly
every civilised power. He was created a baronet ten years ago, aud ha
j holds the prise dearest to the scientist's heart, the gold medal of ths
Royal Society. He celebrated the
jubilee of his association with Arm-
strong's some time ago, and marked
the occasion by presenting $5,000 tn
the poor of Newcastle.���London Ideas.

Tn the past thirty years mora than
3,000 acres of the English coast have
slipped into the. sea. Yorkshire hai
lost about 80) acres, while Lancashire and Suffolk hate each lost nearly 600 acrea.
' nglish    Prison    Governor   Discusses
Earnings of Criminals.
Certainly not! was the emphatic
answer of tbe yovevnor of one tit England's prisons, to whom a writer put
the question. "Does it pay to be a
criminal?" "I liave no hesitation in
saying that forty-nine out ol fifty
criminals could make a belter living
out of any resectable form of work
than by breaking the law," declares
the official.
I have made inquiries on this point
from scores of men, from burglars to
pickpockets, who have been under
my charge; and. almost without exception, they endorse this statement.
One man, a most expert and daring
burglar, confessed to me Hint in forty
years he had not averaged 30s. a week;
and in no year had liis "takings" exceeded vl.500. It is true that he had
spent nearly half the period within
prison walls; but that, of course, is
"part of the game." "I should have
done. better if I had stuck to my
carpenter's bench," he said, ruefully.
And so he would.
That this man's case is not exceptional is proved by official figures. In
a recent year tliere were just over
500 burglaries in London; and the total value taken was $22,000���according
to the estimate of the victims. In
423 cases the spoil did not exceed $25.
The average wns $40; and the Sum
netted by the burglars, probably
aboiit  $10.
At $10 for an axerage haul, you
can see that a burglar must be very
active to make even a reliable $7.50
weekly all the year round.
And it is the same with picking
pockets. I know one very old hand
who told me that he would gladly
retire any day on an ollowance of $5
a week; "for that's more than I have
earned on an average in thirty years,"
ho added. For weeks together this
particular thief has often not known
how to tet a meal or a bed. Then
perhaps l.e would have a haul worth
$250 or more in a day. But "what
is the good of that?"he asked, "when
you have to part with a red toy and
tackle (a gold watch and chain) for a
couple of quid, or a half-century in
pap ($250 worth of notes) for $25?"
Of course, as a rule, the pickpocket
gets better prices than these for his
booty���the usual sum is about a fourth
of the value. But, \n the niogt favorable circumstances, he 13 a lucky "man
wlio makes anything like $10 a week
by  his "profession."
I am convinced that if the spoil
were equally divided among ths
thousand of housebreakers and thieves
in London the individual share would
not come to $5 a week; which is, of
course, a smaller sum than the criminal could earn by honest labor.
And of other branches of crime,
from forging to counterfeit-coining, a
similar story can be told. It is tru?
tliat here and there a man makes a
really big haul and lives to enjoy it;
but such cases are scaicely one in a
hundred. The average earnings over
a number of years are less than
cou'd be earned by the same men (for
many of them are exceedingly clever)
by honorable work.
Add to this that the criminal's life
is much shorter than that of the holiest man; that it Is full of danger and
::crve-shatterii:g experiences; and that
a good part of it usually spent iu
durance���and you will agree with me
that crime ia distinctly nut a paying
game.

"They are fresh,  they  are rare,

But, ln tears, he mads basts to decline.
"I haven't the heart," aald the lean looking man
As his napkin he pressed to his cheek,
"For the thought of their palrf as 1 bit

Would keep me In tears for a week."
"Have some eoup," I suggested,  "that's

Just glance down the bill and select what

But the lean looking man shook his head.

Oh, how can you atow It away?"
"Have an Ice, then I" I cried as tho waiter

"For heaven's sake hurry and choose!
Take *>me cream, sir, I pray, or a cafe

But he Just shook his head to refuse.
"What odds does It make," asked the lean

"To the dear little mlcroblc troop
Whether they're to ba killed In a dish that

Or boiled to their graves In the soup?"
But I put down the chair which I raited
In the air.
Deciding to husband my breath.
And, with nothing to eat. he escaped to
the street.
Though I knew ha was starving to death.
