The property er.tends on either n'.dn

ample room for freight yards on either

night strenuously refuted the charges
made at the meeting of the Citizens
Moral Reform league on Friday night
with regard to the moral conditions
of the city. Ills worship was particularly strung in his denials aud did not
mince matters when stating his opinion of the men who are responsible
for what he referred to as "scandalous
statements."
In the report of the meeting in au

3ald, he stated, that the city reeked
with vice, that gambling hells existed
and that New Westminster was the
only city in the Northwest today to
tolerate a segregated district. The
statements were perfectly scandalous
he declared and had no foundation for
truth.

Ciltor McGregor1 stated that It wa3 lm

officials at an early date  to discuss f worse than Weatminater, he said,

of New Weatmlnster and Coquitlam j
so that a sattffnetory agreement may
be obtained before the application

commissioners at its meeting to be

Indignation at the action of the
authorities of tbe provincial Jail In
refusing to admit disorderly women
committed from Vancouver, and so allowing tbem to be dumped in the city
of Westminster, was expressed at the
council meeting last night by the
mayor and the majority ot the aldermen present.
Alderman White opened the discussion and stated that the action of the
jail authorities in turning down convicted women was somewhat anomalous and ought to be inquired into.
Mayor Lee stated that it was unfair
that the women should be turned loose
in Westminster and that there certainly should be something done on
the matter.
Alderman Dodd proposed tbat v
resolution of protest be sent to th<>
provincial government as lt seemed to
be from that so-.-.rce that all the occurrences were being directed.
Alderman Kellington was of the
opinion that the cily would not be
quite justified in protesting at the refusal to admit the prisoners, hut ther?
was nothing to- keep the city from expressing Its indignation at the unda
slrable women being dumped ln this
city.
The motion of Alderman White that
the matter be referred to tha police

ON FRANCHISE BYLAW
Reeve Weart Decides Deadlock���Board of Works Repoit
Referred Back���Reduced Rates on Central Park Lice Including Edmonds ��� Board of Trade's Request Upon Ward
Abolition Filed--Madill to Father Bylaw.
Edmonds, Nov. 4.���Intense Interest
was shown at the Burnaby council
meeting held this evening when the
matter of again submitting the B. C.
E. R. franchise by-law came up for dia
cussion, and for the first time per
haps in the history of Burnaby applause was given by the supporters
of the movement and also by its op
poneuts when the subject was lad
over for further discussion in tin-
board of works.
Another feature of the meeting was
the fact that Reeve Weart for the first
time during his two year term of
office had to exercise his prerogative
in deciding a deadlock on the voting
when the board of works report of
the week previous was moved to be
adopted.
Refer It Back.
When the matter came- up Councillor Brltton Jumped to his feet with
an amendment that the clause in relation to the franchise be*referred bac'.;
to the beard of works. He was supported by Councillor Madill.
The reeve and every one of the
councillors entered into the discussion
both for and against it.
Councillor Britton Btated that he
was against the franchise, and but foi
the fact of a car passing the hall a*
the time that the board of worka**
motion was put last week, he would
certainly have registered his vote.
Councillor Madill and Mayne also
spoke for the amendment.
Reeve Outlines Case.
Heeve Weart, before the vote was
taken, gave a  resume of the  whole
| of the matter pertaining to the pro I    Qn a motion by
posed franchise, how the council   of  seconded by Coun

by Councillors McGregor, MacDonald
and Fau Vel. The latter took Councillor Madill to task,for certain statements made at lhe Edmonds Ratepayers' association meeting last Friday night when Councillor Madill was
alleged to have stated "that thing*,
were railroaded through tbe council
chamber."
"Any ordinary man with ordinary
intelligence could have understood X.h-3
discussion last Monday," said Councillor Fau Vel.
On a vote Councillors Britton, Madill and Mayne voted for the amendment to refer the matter hack to the
board of works, while Councillors McGregor, Fau Vel and MacDonald voted-
against the amendment.
��� The reeve, 'stating that he did
wish to be quoted as favoring
side of the question, voted for
amendment, which resulted in
mailer being referred back for further discussion. The matter ended
there.
Ward Abolition.
Another Important matter which is
likely to stir the coming municipal
election campaign, was the bobbing;
up of the ward abolition movement.
A letter was read from the secretary
of the board of trade asking that thU
matter be again voted upon by tha
council.
A plebiscite was passed by a largo
majority in the January election
favoring the abolition or the ward
system, but on a vote the council a
few weeks ago refused to act on tbe
matter.

new system.. With the exception of
the manual training school and of
Queensborough school, which latter
was insured for $4000, while the building was valued by the architect at

The Insurance will be divided
among companies registered In British
Columbia which have been established
in the city for not less than one year,
and whose agents bave been ln business for the same period.
The secretary and Mr, McLeod will

Edmonds, Nov. 4.���-Comptroller Griffiths, at the councll meeting this
evening recommended the opening of
a branch office in North Burnaby,
where taxes and water rates could
be received. This, it was suggested,
could be opened for a week previous
to tbe time when the rebate on taxes
and other municipal collections expires.
The majority of the remittances of
North Burnaby people are received by
postal orders and with the creation of
a branch office a saving could be affected to the ratepayers, while information regarding municipal tax eoU
lections mlgrnt be thus readily supplied to those seeking such.
The project was endorsed by the
council.

Few American campaigns have run
through a longer period of heated controversy. The flght fbr the presidency was under way In February and
has scarcely lagged since that time.
Thc Influence of women in the campaign probably will be greater than in
any previous election. Bach national
headquarters has bad an organised

ORDER IN COUNCIL
APPROVING SCHEME
City's Harbor Line on Fraaer Designated���Work on Front Street
May Proceed.
By an order In council signed by
Uon. Robert Roger*, minister of public works, tbe barbor lines in connection with the civic acheme of improvement on the waterfront have
been approved. This was announced
yesterday by Mayor Lee who was
notified thereof by Mr. J. D. Taylor,
MP.
Pending tbla order work upon the
extension of Front street to a width
of 192 feet has been delayed, but it Is
expected that forthwith Improvement*
will be pushed ahead Witji all speed
The city's harbor line extends from
the projection of Fourteenth atreet to
the Fraser Mills, and, in addition to
the work on Front street operations
whieh include the building of wharves
ta Sapperton,, may now be begun In
accordance wtth the plans prepared by
the harbor engineer.

The extension ot the facilities for "
tbe distribution of electric light aad
power ln Westminster this year has
beep, no less marked   than   that   lt��
other branches of civic development.
According to a comprehensive report ���
presented to the city council last night:
by City Electrician P. G. Bowler, thst
output of the city's eleptric system
during the year to date haT Increased
at a rate equal to 12 per cent over
last year.'
The extensions of pole lines and
other equipment connected with the-
distribution of power in alt parts of
the city during the laat few months
have been of very great proportion*
and some Index as to the scale ot this:
development may be gathered, from
tbe fact that 6150 meters fbr private
consumers have been Installed during:
the past ten months.
Wtth regard to the street lamps o*��-
dered by the city, the electrician
found it necessary to anew them to
hang back as he thought It wav of
less Importance to Install them than*
to supply light to private resldaaoea.-.
The same course was adopted In ow
nection with the removal of polks torr
the laying of sidewalks.

Plucky and Successful Struggle to Escape ths Embrace of tha Writhing
Monster, Which Would Havs Crushed Its Victim Like an Eggshell.
Few men after having beeu roughly
squeezed by a python huve lived to tell
of their sensations wblle tn the em-
BRING brace of the big sunke. An Englishman employed ln the London zoological gnrdeus wns, however, oue of the
furtuuntc few.
Tbo Briilsher while in Antwerp visited tbe Jardln Zoologtque. where be
observed tbat a big python���a female
nbout fourteen feet iu length-was suffering from carles of the Jaw. with ulceration of tbe mucous membrane, a
condition often fatal lo snakes In confinement
Having pointed this out to the resident director, the Englishman obtained
permission to make trial of un ointment that be hnd found efficacious In
the early stage of lbe disease among
his own snakes.
Now, ns III luck would bare It, tbe
regular keeper was absent on this particular occasion, nud bis plm-e was filled for the time by another from some
other department ot tbe Instil ution.
This mau spoke nothing but Flemish,
a tongue of which the Briton wus ignorant,
Tbe Eugllsbmuu went Into the python's den witb tbis attendant, taking
It for grunted, of course, that the man
was accustomed to snakes and handing him the box ot ointment to bold until the Britou should be ready to use It
Wbeu the Englishman bad brought
the pytliou fairly down io the floor he
gripped her hard by lbe neck, which
uction had llie effect, as he Intended it
(5) to have and which it always has with
snakes, of making her open her mouth
While holding her thus be pressed her
bend uway from him at lhe same time
to prevent her catching bold of any
portion of Ills clothing In her efforts to
overcome blm.
In her fright nnd rage she drew her
body up across ihe Britisher's back nml
twisted her tail rouud and round h's
other arm. All that the Englishman
now required of the keeper wus. hy
tensing or pinching ber here antl ihere
or by unwinding the tall when necessary, to cause her lu shift her coils constantly and prevent her resting lung
enough on one spot to apply undue
pressure. a.   ..
The  Englishman  turned  to'^inw a
Fign to tbe Fleming to be ready lo hand
him the ointment.    To llie foreigner's
dismay rhe Fleming's face, with a sort
of full. Impartial Interest, tanked ut lilm
through  the glass in  front, (be door
closed on thc outside!   He bad become
frightened by Ihe python ond bad quietly departed.
At the same Instant tbat tbe Hritish
er turned tbe serpent tightened on him
bo suddenly and violently tbut be mo
mentnrily lost consciousness. Then he
found himself staggering about the den
fighting for life. He eipected his ribs
to give way every moment, yet bis
chief fear al the time was of falling
through the glass
He pushed the reptile's bend away
from hlm with all bis strength lest It
should cross his breast, snd he can remember cutchitig sight of himself, a

Panic in Calonlki.
London. Nov. 4.���Salonikl Is In a
state of panic, according to a dispatch
from the city to the Morning Post.
About 20.000 inhabitants of the surrounding villages have poured Into the
town besides hundreds of fugitives
from Dsltiib and 7,000 Anatolian soldiers sent from Constantinople There
is a great scarcity of provisions and
the hungry soldiers have plundered
the bakers' shops.
Drive  from   Europe.
Paris, Nov. 4.���Paris newspapers are
much concerned tiiis morning by action of representatives of the Balkan
^'ates in St. Petersburg, informing
the Russian premier that they could
consider any proposal of intervention
inopportune at the present moment.
This fact, coupled with the semi-offi-
e'al declaration of disinterestedness,
causes the Paris press to believe that
the Balkan federation will carry out
the task of driving the Turks from
Europe.
While only recently the Paris newspapers supported the Turks they hava
not indulged In a volte-face and the
newspapers are full of warnings to
the Balkan alliance that they will not
succeed in their aim.
The Excelsior declares that the
least disagreement might provide disagreeable complications because other
nowers would seek to profit by lta
action.
The Figaro, summing un the situation, says: "The sole business of
France is to maintain peace and secure for the Balkan Spates without exception the full benefit of their victories.
"Such has been her position from
th<" beginninK of the crisis and she
will pursue tt to the end."
MR SHORTAGE MAY
CAUSE COAL FAMINE
United   States    Railway   Commission
Makes   Drastic   Recommendation
to Relieve Condition.
Washington, Nov. 4.���The   shortage !
of freight cars, the menace of a coal |
famine   and   industrial   paralysis   In
some   parts   of the country, haa become so serious    that   the Interstate
Commerce Commission has   proposed
to shippers and others drastic recom-;
mendations for its relief, with a thin ;
veiled intimation   that   should   they
fail to remedy the situation the commission itself would find a way to do ;
so. . '
"The condition is acute," declared
Commissioner Lane, who for several
weeks has been conducting an Inquiry.
"Great institutions, the University
of Michigan at Ann Arbor, for Instance, are practically out of fuel and '
can not get it because there are nc
cars for its transportation. If an immediate remedy is not found, people |
In parts of this country wlll be freezing to death because of their Inability
to get coal."
The car shortage is Baid to be due
in part, to delay in unloading cars,
the slow movement of the freight cars
and the failure of railroads to return
car3 to the lines owning them. In th.'
latter casc3, the railroads hold cars,
paying a nominal charge for their
use. This the commission denounces
as "nothing less than theft."
The Investigation of the slow movement of freights developed that a
freight car averaged about twenty
miles a day and that while one was
moving thirteen were standing still.

Aaaurance That Powers Will Give Her
Chance to Protect Interest*
Doubted.
Parla, Nov. 4.���Austrian suspicions
still block the way to an accord of
the powers on the proposal of Prance.
Russia and Great Britain for a declaration of "territorial disinterestedness."
The French ambassador at Vienna
has given the Austrian foreign minister, Count von Berchthold, definite
assurances that the three powers have
no Intention of asking Austria to
deny herself the right to protect fully
her economic interests and that the
only desire Is to be able to Indicate
to the belligerents that, ln offering
mediation, the great powers are determined to make no demand for territorial compensations. Up to a late
hour last night the Krench foreign
office had received no reply from the
Vienna cabinet, and it Is feared that
the tone of the semi-official Austrian
newspapers foreshadows a refusal to
agree to the proposal.
Germany also remains silent. Her
decision doubtless will conform to
that of Austria.
The Balkan league, according to Information available ln Parla, already
have agreed on a programme, aud
when the time arrlveo they mepn to
dictate terms to Turkey. They will
first enforce absolute autonomy ln
Macedonia and Albania.
They propose therefore to regulate
the autonomous regime tn their respective Interests, and to assume the
responsibility arising therefrom, without interference on the part of outsiders. They wlll permit the*reat
powers to regulate the status for
Constantinople and to International
questions such as the Dardanelles and
the future of Turkey ln Asia.
The powers of the triple entente
have sent a note to Bulgaria. Greece
and Servla pointing out the danger to
Christians and the serious consequences to the commerce) of Europe
generally should they occupy Constantinople and Salonikl and earnestly exhorting the Balkan States to arrest the advance of their troops somewhere near the cities.

Tbe claim, which Is one to the barony of Dudley, Is made by Lleutenant-
Ccl. Fcrdinando Dudley Lea Smith,
the senior co-heir, who traces his descent through Anne, the eldest sister
cf the last peer-LIeut.-Col. Smith, who
was born In 1S72, and now command!
the 6th battalion Worcestershire Regiment. He served ln the South African war, and married In 1904, Sybil,
daughter of Cancu H. W. Coventry, of
Severn 8toke, Worcestershire.
The title to which claim Is made
was created In 1342, when John de
Sutton, the first baron, was summoned
to a king's council. It did not fall
into abeyance until 1757.
On the death, ln 1643, of Edward,
ninth Lord Dudley, hia granddaughter
Frances succeeded to the title. Sha
was the wife of Hunibe Ward, a neb
London banker, who, in return, it is
said, for large sums ot money, lent
to King Charles I., was created Lord
Ward of Birmingham, a title which
is now held by the Earl of Dudley.
The eldest sen of this marriage of
Frances with Humbe Ward was Edward Ward, who succeeded to both
the Ward and Dudley baronies. From
him Lieutenant-Colonel Lea Smith la
descended, while from the third son,
William, the present Earl of Dudley
traces descent.
On the death, unmarried. In 1757. of
Ferd'.nando. the fourteenth baron, the
barony fell into abeyance among his
sisters, of whom the eldest was the
Hon. Anne Smith, the claimant's great-
great-grandmother, and the estates
passed'to the Smith family.
The Baron of Dudley Is quite a distinct peerage from the Earldom of
Dudley, which did not come Into existence till 1860.

BUILDIN7 FAST.
Rome was nol built in a day,   and
althoftgR'some   of our   contemplated
improvements may seem   to   take   a
long time to get well under way, yet
scarcely   a week   goes   by   without
some announcement that further progress has been made, not only with regard to civic development, but iu the
-exploitation of the natural advantages
with   which   Westminster   and   the
Fraser River is endowed.
Yesterday brought examples of thii,
'   for we are told cn one hand that the
Dominion government   has   approved
the city's harbor line,  and, on    the
other, that definite    announcement   is
made of the plans of the G. N. R. wilh
regard to the territory upon our east
��rn limits.
The order in council of the Dominion government will allow the work
upon the widening of Front street r-
be got under way forthwith, and we
trust that before long visible evidence
of thi3 Improvement will be noted.
Writh regard to the announcements
of the G. N. R. it Is of the grcatca

RKtWE RIPORT Of
GRAND JURY TODAV
���Sikh   Perjury Case   Occupies  Court-
��� Two More True Bilfs Returned
Yesterday.
The grand jury brought In, yestjr-
<day, true billa against Albert G.
Stevens for perjury in connection with
a civil case against S'.irrey municipality, and on four additional counts
against George McPhease, already indicted for a theft cliarge in Burnaby.
The additional counts are for being
in possession of stolen property.
Today the presentment of the grand
jury, as a result of their inspection of
the. local public institutions, will bo
formally delivered to the court.
The trial of Bogh Singh, a Sikh
. woriunjin. for perjury, occupied the
assize court's attention all day. Prisoner is alleged to have wlllally and
ralsely sworn that another Sikh named
Isshur Singh, who was convicted of
assault last October assizes, was in
VapfiQuver with him on the evening
of the assault at the time the event
was alleged to have taken place, 14th
August, whereas he knew prisoner
was in Westminster.
Mr. J. R. Grant, prosecuted and
prisoner was defended by Mr, J. A.
Kukri 11. Vancouver.
The difficulties of proving perjury
were soon made to appear bv the
cross -examination of Mr. Russell, and
fbr* en****- seems to binge on the strict
accuracy of the interpretation. This
without In the slightest degree Impugning the integrity of the Interpret-
��� era, but from the fact that there are
no many dialects and idioms in India,
.the irritating repugnancy of natives of
Chat vasl country to Kive a straight,
dim i answer, affirmative or negative,
to categorical questions and Iheir ln-
riaie habit of giving lom; winded and
roundabout answers.

Supreme Court, proved the records of
the trial of Mnkun Blngh and Isshar
Singh at tiio October assizes nf mil.
T]ieH<! were the two msn convicted,
and In Which relative to Isshar Singh,

Himself, Crown counsel was proceeding to refer to the evidence in the
<yi��e when Mr. Russell objected that
Mr. Grant was Introducing evident:.!
of another offence committed by others which inirtbt influence the minds
of the jury against the occurred.
Justice Murphy said he would direc*.
the Jury to nay no attention to such
��vldcree. The fact that some other
persons thought that this man was
telling an untruth waa not evidence
.-against this num.
.   Mr. Cambridge stated that  the interpreter was Mr. C. J. Brooke, Van-
nrnrffir,   B"d   the   stenographer, Mr.
TYecvnan Hunting.
Cross-examined���He had no per-
isr*"*'"1 raeolloctlon of nntrh Sineli or
vtfhcthcr he spoke Kngiish or Hindu
stani. His impression was that all the
Hindu evidence was given through an
interpreter. He did not know what
form of oath was administered or
whether it was binding on the witness' copsc-ence. He always satisfied
himself thut it wa3 through the interpreter.
Mr. Freeman Bunting, court stenographer, testified to taking shorthand
notes of the evidence through the Interpreter.
Charles John Brook, the interpreter,
referred to, sa'd he was born in India, at Simla, and had resided there 20
years, lie Bpoke Hindustani and interpreted at the trial when Bogh
Singh, the pritsoner, wa3 ellcged to
have commlted perjury. Hindustani
was a language understood by the natives all over India.
I W. R. Stanton, formerly sergeant
cf thc city police and Constable Bur-
rowes gave evidence a3 to the assault
upon Dharm Singh in August, mil.
the case in which the alleged perjury-
took place.
John W. Burns, superintendent in
Small & Bucklin'a mills, gave evidence as to Isshar Singh having
worked on the evening of 14th August, when the prisoner swore he had
accompanied Isshar Singh to Vancouver.
S. R. Haw gave evidence connected
with thc original as.iault, which occasioned nrls^nr-'s ev'dence.
Police C'otmt.".lj'i9 Exley testified to a
confession by prisoner when arrested
at Grand Forks.
Dharm Singh was examined and reiterated his evidence given at the assize court, October, 1911, as to the assault committed on him. for which Isshar Singh and Makum Singh wero
convicted.
He was subjected to a long and
searching examination by Mr. Russell,
but In the main was unshaken. He,
however, stated that he had given hi-t
evidence formerly In Punjabi and had
answered the Interpreter when he understood him. He only understood
Hindustani partly.

The    meet   that the Greeks    had
planned for 1914 must not be confused
by athletic enthusiasts with the regular Olympic series, promoted   every
four ynars under the direct supervis-
i ion of the International Olympic com-
\ mittee.    The Athen3 Olympiads    are
i the handiwork of the Greek Olympic
Committee, and though they are sanctioned by the International Committee
they are not rated by that body as being of the regular four-year series.
DAMAGES CLAIMED
AMERICAN JIEW OF
SOCCER IN ENGLAND
The    National    Game���Bad   Weather
Weather Cannot Keep Thousanda
from Watching Favorites.
London, Nov. 3.���Association, or
���"soccer" football, aB it is better
known, ls the national sport of England���not cricket, as many of ua have
been led to suppose.
Cricket Is the "highbrow's" sport,
Just as polo la in the United States:
soccer takes the place of baseball
with the English masses.
American football ends In Novem
ber, but the English season extends
from September to April, and no day
Is cold enough throughout the winter
or wet enough, either, to keep the
crowds away.
The players do such wonderful
things with their heads, their stomachs, their chests, their backs and
their heads that you could cut off
their hands and make little difference
in the game.
Here is a fellow running down the
ilel-3 toward his opponent's goal with
a half dozen men trying to get the
ball, which he is juggling between his
legs as he runs. Suddenly, with a
backward kick, he sends the ball behind him to a team mate; or he may
kick it backward over his head.
Or.e fellow kicks the ball as high
cb the Singer building; by rights,
when it strikes, it will rebound as
high as a house. But it doesn't. Another player deftly catches it under
his fcot as it alights, and it stops
WthOUt a bounce, It's a common trick
to kick the ball in such a way that it
rolls along the ground with a curve,
like a huge billiard ball.
Tl'e things the players do with their
heads are almost unbelievable. They
are trained to use their bodies as a
ball player us��s his arm . One will
jump in the air, giving his body a
Inat) from tbe waist up as a pitcher
snaps his arm, and catching the incoming ball -on his forehead, drive it
Vaif a city block In whatever direction
he pleases.
Soccer is a harmless game, huh?
Well, it isn't. I Baw a fellow get hl3
fac." over a kicked hall which would
have gone over the fence if he hadu'l
ntooped lt. It Bounded 1 ke kicking a
horse In the stomach . He wasn't oT
much use the rest rf the game, but hc-
d'dn't leave the Hi id. An English
plaver never leaves too field unless hc
is carried off.
When a min is Injured his place If.
not filled. They hnve doctors on th-i
n'd" lines just as they do in the
United States, but usually they're
f-otn an adlacent hospital, to which
the injured are frequently taken.
The players do not wear shinguards
���and often kick each other where It
��� hurts the most���on the shin.   Knee
caoa are often kicked ont of place.
1 can't see why Englishmen crltl-
c'ze Americans for rooting at basebal'
games. At theBe football games you'll
hear as lively rooting as in the blench-
prs when Toronto is playing Roches
ter.
"Oh. you silly ass!" they yell when
they think a nlayer ,has used poor
judgment. "Played, sir! Played!" ls
a shout of approbation. "Played!" Is*:
the British for "Oreat work, old man!" |
Sometimes they shout, "Bully! Topping!" But they groan ln criticism
and roar in approval, just as an
American crowd would do.
Two cuns take the place of pen
nants. and are competed for by th��
twenty leading teams of England.

unfairness of the committee that
selected the team against Calgary in
leaving out several of the Kiremen,
who are leading in the Miller <cup
race. Vice-President Murray, of the
union, a member of the Crusaders and
also a member of the selection committee, resigned his position after
much reluctance, and was followed by
his associates.
A temporary selection committee
was appointed to gather a team
aganst Victoria on Saturday, and a
permanent one will be elected at the
next meeting on Monday next.
No games are scheduled for Saturday, but it Is probable that one of
the Vancouver teams will play a
friendly game with New Westmlnstei
on that date.
On Saturday, November 16, the
Highlanders will visit the Royal City
and will bring over their regimental
band for the occasion.

ROM LABORER TO M.P.
JOSEPH ARCH  HAS  MADE A
RECORD IN ENGLAND.
The First Agricultural Laborer to Become a Member of the British
Commons Is Now Spending His
Old Age In Barford, Warwickshire
He Once Defeated Lord Henry
Bentinck at the Polls.
Tn blissful retirement at the Warwickshire village of Barford, Mr.
Joseph Arch is ending his duys. Enjoying his pipe of peace, he can sit
in his well-cared-for garden marveling at tlie great feeling of unrest that
has heen sweeping over the industrial
populiilion and comparing presenl
events with the exciting times of his
own experience. Like all veterans,
he is always willing to fight his battles over again, says a writer in
London Tit-Bits.
His name will go down in history
as being the flrst agricultural laborer
to be elected a member of the Hri'ish
House of Commons. Four times ��
candidate, and thrice successful, i.
his record for the constituency ol
North-East Norfolk. He sat in Parliament during the Liberal Governments of 1RS5-G. 1892-6, and the Conservative Ministry of 1895-1000. Hi
opponent in the elections- ot 1R35
1886. and 1892 was Lord Henry Bentinck, a near relation of the Duke ol
Portland. Great excitement prevailed on the flrst occasion when tht
laborer defeated Ihe lord. His victory
would have been repeated in the following year had not the election taker
place during the harvest, when, owing
to his supporters   b.dng   engaged all

Sur* Thoy Aro Not.
Nobody   hus  Straight   legs���thnt   Is.
legs tbat nre perfectly parallel.    What
sre commonly bo culled nre the mildest
degree of X legs, while those that are
technically   most  nearly  straight are
the mildest degree of O legs.
!    X  legs and  O  legs are the  names
\ given to  bowlegs nnd knoekknees b.v

Mnenchener    Mediclnlsebe    Wocben-
schrlft,  who  bases his remarks  upou
the examination of 1.100 pairs of legs
taken ut random.
O legs always look like strong limbs,
while X legs give the Impression of
weak members. Professor Prnncke
lays down tbe rule tbat lf when standing in a natural position the knees and
ankles touch without forcing the subject has straight legs. Tf, wltb the
ankles touching, tbere Is ns much as
two centimeters between the knees. It
Is bowleggcd. If. with the knees
touching, there be two centimeters be-
tweeu the ankles. It Is knockkneed. or
X legged.
Children Imrn with O or straight
legs tend to become X legged while
learning to wnlk. Imt this condition
tends to disappear In men np to the
twenty-third year or In perhaps 2f> per
cent up to the thirty eighth year. Women, however, tend to remain knock-
kneed or X legged throughout life, as
n result of their skirts and tbeir lack
of exercise.
The ancient Creeks never hnd and
modern savages never hnve X legs,

One of the most engaging authors
of the day is Mr. Oliver Onions, whoso
reputation has increased with every
book he has produced. A bakers doz-
jen now stands to his credit, and
Amongst them cne recal'. I "The Corn-
pleat Bachelor," "According to the
Evidence." and "Widdershins."
Mr. Onions has lately been taking
the public into his confidence aa to
his literary struggles. These were not
very violent, *: one may judge from

LAST  WORDS.
A MONSTER SUN  SPOT.
At.-/ in 'he fields, and thus prevented

Bandtingham, the delightful Norfolk
esta'.c  oi   the   lut'j  King  Edward,   is
situated in  the middle of the constituency.    The  Prince of Wales, as he
wos   then.    Iind  a   holiday   granted���
with   full  pay���to   the   men   on   his
lunds  on   the  polling  day.    He  also
insisted  tliat  canvassers  were  not to
be allowed to influence the voters in
his employment.    Our lute  King  was
a   nn (lei   landlord,   and   Mr.  Arch's
opinion is Hint the lot of the men on
tlie myal estates i* a decidedly happy
one.   More than one visit did his Inte
majesty pay his Labor representative.
One   other   Parliamentary   seat   did
Mr. Arch contest.   Thnt was at Wilton
in 1880, before tli>.' extension   of   the
franchise,   Owing to the fact that the
men on  'he  land  were not then  permitted to enjoy the possession of the
vote hecausa of the low rentals of the
cot-tag's occupied, he   was hopelessly
defeated at the poll.    Thirt en years
before he had started his aot:v.> career

conditions for  all   farm  laborers.    In

the foundation of the  National  Agri-
culturiil   Laborers'   Union,   which   is
now   defunct.     The   agitation   which
then  enmm ncp-d  was  remarkable  for
its regular conduct���cases of violence
being absolutely unknown.   His work
received the support   of   such   w_'ll-
known men as Cardinal Manning. Mr.
Jesse Colliug& Sir George Trevelyan.
nnd  Mr.  Munddla.    On  the occasion
of his entry  Into Parliament he was

Cluh,   wil It   Mr.  Joseph   Chamberlain

Such a record is not to hp despised,
especially when it is ren."ml>ere'd that
the food during his early years eon-
tisted mainly of barley bread, Ten

The Newest Ons Nearly Tan Times th*
Size of North America.
The largest sun spot which bas been
detected within a year, n coal patch on
the sun's surface, 10.000 nlles lu diameter, though it-s mark on the seventeen
Inch Image nt the Mount Wilson observatory measures but n fifth of nu
Inch ncross, ls now under observation
at the Carnegie observatory nnd bus
been photographed several times since
Its appearance, on .June 18.
The area of the sun spot Is approximately 7S.540.000 square miles, u surface nearly ten times tbo size of North
America and ln whicb twenty-live
countries of the size of the United
States might be placed with plenty of
margin around the edge.
Professor Ferdinand Ellerman has
headed the work ot photographically
capturing the spot, which is uow moving westward.
"As fnr ns we know," said Professor
W. S. Adams, assistant to Professor
George F. Halo, head of the local Car-
negle astronomical Institution, "these
spots nre cooler tbnn the other parts of
thc suu's surface.
"The question ot whether thp sun is
growing hotter or cooler nnd the eft eet

have had an easier passage than Mr.
Thomas Hardy or the late George
Meredith. Recalling his early days,
Mr.  Onions says:
"As a writer I never knew Grub
street. In that I account myself fortunate. As staff artist on a weekly
paper I was able to go through the
mill as a draughtsman of war pictures and plays and tidal waves and
conflagrations, and to keep my writing
strictly as my luxury.
"As it happened, line-drawing just
lasted my time out, and by the time
press photcgTaphy arose I was already
out of the wood. I had written a
book, bought a typewriter, paid iry
debts, and so forth, and, having had
the luck to possess two strings to my
bow, wns envied my translation by
those with whom 1 had worked side
by  side."
The Explanation of tht Patient's Anxiety About His Letter.
In a N'ew Vork hospital a cadaverous Spaniard, with tbe aid of oxygen
and a pump, wns staving off tbe final
moment of exit
Rallying temporarily, ne stretched
out a bund aud clutched at the arm of

"Yes. he's gone."
"Shut 'e door."
"Lock  hlm," he begged���It wss the

"Now. yon promise for me again?
Yon promise you not Rhow this to doctor, not show It to night nurse���not to

She nodded.
lie slipped the sheet from the envelope once more, grinning with whnt
hnd every appearance of fiendish exultation.
"That fix hlm." be muttered. "That

An hour Inter, when the doctor returned, he found the nurse crying.
"He died fifteeu minutes ago. and I
don't know what to do. 1 ought to
mail this, but I'm afraid It's some
Hlack Hand business or something.
Would you be willing to look It over

letter.
He glanced at the one single line
and shook bis heart.
"Is It a Hlack Hand message?" she
whispered.
"No." be said plaintively: "It's to his

Balls Pitched In a Game.
It Is possible for a pitcher to throw
only twenty-seven balls In a nine inning game. No accurate record of the
smallest number of balls thrown ln any
game exists, ns no one counts every
ball In every game. 1 scored one game
in which Kd Walsh pitched onl.v eighty-
eight balls, seven of whieh were fouls,
which 1 regard ns remarkable. I aaw
Coombs pitch seventeen balls to one
batter last summer. The greatest number of pitched balls I ever counted in
n game was 211. George ("Rube") Wid-

Watches Are Sensitive.
There is In Cleveland a central ofllce
for the Inspection of watches which
serves sixty different railways. Twice
a month every railway servant must
take bis watch to a local Inspector to
be regulated, and once a year It must
be cleaned. Neglect of these rules may
be followed b.v suspension or discharge.
The officials of this Inspection department have found that the watches of
engine drivers with regular runs keep
much better time than those of men
wbo work lu long stretches followed by
a long rest And the watch resents

Painted Pood Cheese.
Lawrence Alma-Tadema. tbe fnnv>u-
artist who died a few days wzn. wa-
undoubtedly tho finest painter of marble that ever lived. Marble had an
extraordinary fascination for him
.'.s he or.-ce put it: "When I see s
marble wall it seems to me the surface is fitter and far more beautiful
than the surface of any other material."
Sir Lawrence once confessed, however, that he really owed his success
as a painter oi marble to the scathing
criticism he once received from a certain eminent artist. The great man
was shown one ol Tadema's picture'-.
in which marble figured very lar^efy.
and, after looking at it in si'.ence for
Mime time, he turned to the expectant
artist nnd said: "Yes, it is very nice.
You paint good cheese." Aud it wns
this remr.rk which led the artist to
he^in a thorough study of m-irbie.
Folly of Betting.
William B Trembley. tbe swimming
hero of Funstou's regiment In the
Philippines, visited New Orleans with
a friend wblle city clerk of Kamsas
City. Kan Hiding down Onupblne
street one morning, the friend wns
boasting how he would bankrupt tbe
bookmakers. Looking up from the
paper be was rending. Trembley saw
a boulevard ahead marked "Oleander
way."
"You beat the races!" he exclaimed.
"Why. I'll liet you $10 you can't guess
the name of that street yonder."
The friend looked ahead and saw
the sign "I'll take you. even money.'1
he said "It's Oleander way. you
rummy.    There's the sign."
"So It Is." said Trembley. "but you
oughtn't to believe ln signs. Look
bere."
Trembley, being n city clerk, naturally was attracted by a column story of
the proceedings of the New Orleans
council on the nlgbt before. Right Id
tbe lend paragraph be showed bis
friend the tragic evidence���tbe passage
of an ordinance changing the name of
Oleander wny to .'ackson boulevard.���

An Irish Squire's Advice.
An upstart Irish squire went to an
old squir' for advice as to sending
a ch all .-nge.
"Healy of Louchiinstown." said he,
"has threatened to pull me by the

would you advise me to do?"
"Hns he really used that threat?"
asked   tli3  squire.
"He has."
"Well," said the squire. "I'll tell
you whnt to do���soap your nose well
and it will slip through his fingers."
Perhaps the most contafnptuiu*
declination of a challenge was that
of an Irish gentleman of the old

sought appointment to a fat living

recommendation to Lord Thurlow. but
the bishop said such a letter was like
iy to do more harm than good. Never-
fheltss lie wrote it. When Thurlow
real the missive he said. "Well, as
that scoundrel, the Bishop of London, has introduced you, you won't
get the living." "So the bishop said,
my lord." was the meek reply. "Did
the bishop say so?" roared Thurlow.
"Then I'll prove him a liar, for you
ahall have the living." And he was as
good as his word.

POSTMASTEK
A fortunate Mistake
i
By Clarissa Mackie
��������� I inmni , . , | ,,���,���
The postmaster at Saltpeter Canyon
took bis feet down from the counter
and lounged over to the little pigeonholed box where the letters were distributed. The door opeued, and a man
strode ln nnd pressed a bronzed face
clove to the stamp window.
"HowdyI Any mall for the Lone
Bull'/" he nsked.
Simeon Carter reached down a packet of lettera und thumbed tbem over
deliberately. Occasionally he paused
to expectorate over bis shoulder, improving eacb opportunity by Indulging
in a prolonged stare at tbe face In the
window. Preseutly his curiosity found
utterance. "Seems like I've seen you
before." he hinted.
"Where?" asked the other with disconcerting promptness.
"I-l don't remember," admitted
Simeon sheepishly, and then gruffly,
"l don't know as I'm Inclined tn give
tho Lone Bull mall to anybody tbat
comes nlong."
"I hope you don't feel that way,"
snld the other cheerfully, "but I guess
you hnd better give It to me. I've got
Boss CHntock's order somewhere about
me. hut I reckon ray face Is order
enough to get tlie mall rrom a little
2 by 4 cracker box like this."
"Young feller, that face of yourn
will be your passport to a mucb hotter plaoe than Saltpeter Canyon." grunted Simeon as he leaned an elbow on
the window ledge. "To get down to
business, here's a letter for Theodore
Crnne, a bull bunch for the boss, a paper for Jim Lewis, and, let me see,
there's a postal card for Harry Barry
from his uncle at the Springs saying���
��im���nh. yes; here's a postal card for
Harry Barry, and that's all"
"Thanks," said the other briefly as be
bestowe<l tlie mall matter In his various pocket* and turned nway.
Now Simeon farter's leathern face
was pressed to the window.    "There

ier," be Insinuated, "oniy I don't bap
pen to know yonr name."
"I'm not looking for a letter," said
tbs otber Itnperturuably. "I never get
any letters."
The postmaster's face reddened an
grlly. "Think you'll string me. eh?
���Spose you'd rather go without your
letter than tell your aame."
"I don't mind telling my name," said
the other cowboy carelessly, "only yon
didn't ask me outright Ask me plumb
out. and I'D tell yoo. Fair and square
Is my method."
Simeon swallowed bis Indignation
and grinned beck at the handsome
youth. "Wbnt'B yttur name, young
man?" be asked bluntly.

promptly.
"Well, that doea bent the bugs!

It wns np to tbe postmaster at Saltpeter Canyon. Timothy shrugged his
shoulder nnd tucked the picture away
In his breast pocket. He would await
a favorable opportunity before presenting It to its rightful owner.
At the supper table they were scoffing at Jim Lewis' use of cheap tobacco. Harry Barry was paaslng around
his handsome new Stetson with all the
solemnity of a deacon passing the contribution plate.
"For Jim's marriage license," explained Mr. Barry as he poked the hat
under Timothy's nose. "We're all
doped with that brand of herbs he'a
smoking. Get back to the Broncho
brand. Jimmy. We'll raise the money
for the wedding."
Timothy frowned a little as he
thought of the face pressed agnlnst
his heart, but tact required tbat a contribution be made, so with what grace
he could muster he dropped a handful
of cigarettes in the hat and went on
with hla supper.
Jim Lewis was growling over his
newspaper. "I'll eat old Simeon alive
tf he's keeping back any more of my
letters."
"Heard anything more about that
Tlm nnd Jim letter?" asked Crane from
behind his coffee cup.
"Nary. Maybe It's because I haven't
been near the old scalawag for ten
days. I've thrashed lt out with him
for tbe last time. I feel pretty blllng
mad tonight, and I've got a mind to
go over and thrash bim good and
plenty," said Mr. I*wls savagely.
"We might go over and wipe out tho
hull place, tnke your letter and git."
suggested Harry Barry eagerly. "It's
mighty dull nowadays. I feel like I
could lick a regiment."
"I'll attend to my own licking." observed Jim dryly. "When I go to
hunt down a weazened old scalawag
like Simeon Carter I guess 1 ain't feeling so poorly that 1 have to take along
six pk':ed men. a battery of machine
guns nnd nn nlryplane scout to help
me out Nlxey. Thnt is to be n duet-
Just Simeon and me, and rae coming
home with the letter which he says
ls not for me."
In thl�� mood Mr. Lewis was not to
be trifled with, nnd one by one the
men dropped away to Indulge In a
quiet game of poker near the glowing
stove.
Timothy I*wt�� resolved to postpone
hts Interview with his comrade until
morning had brought the gloomy oue
to a more amlnlile frame of mind. Incidentally Timothy could have nnoth-
er look nt the picture, whicb he he��l-
tnted to surrender.
Toward morning he wns awakened
by a touch on his shoulder, nnd he
started up to flnd Jim I*wls slttlnir
on tbe edge of the bed In a flood of
moonlight
"Well." said Timothy sharply,
"what's wanted?"
Lewis crossed one leg over the other
and pulled reflectively at his mustache. "1 Just been over to Saltpeter
Canyon and licked that postmaater. On
tbe aide I've rifled tbe United. Stales
mail, nnd I'm liable for most snytblng.
and when It was all over but the
shouting old Simeon barks out be'd
give tbe letter to Mr. Tim Lewis, which
Is you, I believe." Mr. Lewis' voice
was dangerously silky.
"That's my name." snapped Timothy,
now wide awake. "That letter was
given to me by mistake. Il surely was
addressed so It looked like Tlm,' and I
opened IL Of count* as seou as I saw
wbat was In It I knew It wasn't for
me. I wss going to give It to you In
tbe morning."
"Honest?" demanded Jim Lewis
"Yes." returned Timothy quietly, and
sucb wss his reputation among nis
comrades thst bis word was never
doubted. Jim Lewis held out hts hand,
and Timothy reached under bis pillow
and drew out tbe letter. "Here It l��."
be said.
"You're taking plenty good care of
It" commented Jim Lewis aa be inhered curiously in tbe eud of lhe letter
nnd then drew forth ihe photograph.
He beld It to the moonlight and stared
aud stared again at the face. Then he
scanned the superscription on the envelope. "Well. I'm banged If it Isn't
little Xelll Of course 1 thought It
must be from Ltllui" Tbe disappointment In bis toue emboldened Timothy
to ask ii question.
������Who Is Nelir he naked bluntly.
"My sister." said Jlte I-ewl* promHy.
���She tenches scbool In Sioux City, nnd
she's the inirtlest girl out^exeept LUln
<31lbert~of course always except the
future Mrs. Lewis." He lucked the
picture nway In bis pocket and seemed
smitten with some happy thought, for
lie nsked suddenly. "Wbat'd you lmve
It nnder your pillow for? Now. that's
inettv good. Tlm. Don't yoti blow to
ibe .baps ahout my end. a��d I'll keep
it dark about your blushing over Nel-
He's picture. Wbat say?"
"Agreedl" said Timothy promptly.
���Ami I say. Jim, tbe n*xt time you go
��o sioux City will you thke me along?"
������Sure thing. I'm going to marry
Lulu there In about two weeks, so yoo
,-an go along and be best man. It'e to

hrotber-ln-lnw. Ttm Lewis, you can

THE WORLD'S WORK DEPENDS
ON THE WORLD'S DIGESTION
From the captain of industry to the
hod carrier���from milady in the auto to
the woman with the scrubbing brush���
the accomplishments of every one of us
depend absolutely on the accomplishments of our stomachs. Backed by a
good digestion, a man can give the best
that is in him. When his stomach fails,
he becomes a weakling.
To this loss of power no one need
submit. Right habits of eating,
drinking, sleeping and exercise, aided
by Na-Dru-Co Dyapepsia Tablets, will
restore and maintain the full efficiency
of tbe human mind and body.
Na-Dru-Co Dyspepsia Tablets contain
the active principles needed for the
digestion of every kind of food. They
go to the assistance of the weakened
slomach, and enable the sufferer, right
from the start, to assimilate and get the
benefit of the food eaten. With this
assistance, the digestive organs regain
their tone, anduoou the useof the tablets
is no longer necessary.
If your stomach is not working pro-
perly, try Na-Dra-Co Dyspepsia Tablets.

FROM PROFITS OR
LOSSES?
We ALL advertise.
A man advertises his character by his
deeds, liis wisdom by his words or by his
silence. A merchant's store, stock, and windows speak either well or ill of his business.
So when a man says "No, I do not advertise," he knows not what he says. What
he really means is that he does not publish
printed advertisements.
Some proclaim this as thongh it
were a virtufe���yet spend much effort
and invest much money in advertising their business through mediums
other than the printed word.
They may make their wares fit for
a king���yet hesitate to Introduce thein
to Brown or Smith,
This ls inconsistency.
The truth is, printed advertising Is
a vital force in EVERY business, Just
as is the "silent" advertising of a
product's quality or. a merchant's service.
When you employ the Printed Word
83 your solicitor in tho Court of Pub
lic Opinion, you build good wlll for
your product or service���a good wlll
that results ln profit
If unrepresented at this Court, your
Interests are aa unprotected as though
when Involved in a lawsuit, you fail-,
ed to "enter an appearance" and the
ckse Is decided against you���by default
So it is clear that yoa pay for advertising���one way or the other. It
you pay lt wages It will work FOR
you.
If you refuse Its offers of service,
lt will work AGAINST you, ln just
the measure ot Its employment by
your competitors.    ,
So you ARE paying for advertising either
out of your profits or by your losses.
Are you losing by not advertising in The
News?

Some surprise was expressed in
local hockey circles last evening by a
communication received by Mayor Lea
from Hon. H. E. Young, provincial secretary, to the effect that the leasing
of the horse show building in Queens
park to the Westminster Areua company would be io establish a dangerous precedent.
Sir Richard McBride and Hon.
Price Ellison, minister of agriculture,
have both expressed their approval of
the leasing of the building which
would bring in a remuneration to tho
city at a time when the building could
not be leased for anything else.
The city' council at   a recent   data j
acquiesced In the leasing of the building,  and  endeavored   to  secure    an
order In council from tbe provincial
government   ratifying    the   arrange- j
ment.
Mayor Lee, on receipt of the letter, j
expressed considerable surprise at the
new turn of events, anl stated thai. |
the letter of the provincial secretary
neither denied nor gave the right   to
the city to lease the arena.
The city council discussed the mat- j
ter last evening and decided to go
ahead with Its present plans, the city
clerk being Instructed to write Man-1
ager Frank Patrick stating Its willing-,
nesa to lease the building subject to ���
the agreement to be made within the !
next few days. '   |
Alderman Kellington, during the de-
bate on the situation,   declared   that
several parents had asked him to sup-1
port the application of the Arena com- j
pany as they believed It would be the I
means of keeping  their  children off j
the streets at night and away from
bad Influences.
The time for the opening of    th? I
hockey season    ls fast   approaching j
and unlesa the arena company gets   a j
clear consent to lease the  structure
at the park, the officers are not willing to go ahead    with    their    plans. ]
When once this consent is obtained,
the refrigerating plant will be started |
immediately,   plans fcr   which   have
been prepared and the contract all but
let. ,
At the present time the Vancouver
and Victoria rinks are in full swing
and throngs of skaters are daily to be
seen gliding over the Ice. The champion hockey team "f the Royals Is

A. hold their meeting ou November 9
Manager Prank Patrick ia not yet in
a position to go ahead with his plans.
Hyland and Johnson are the alleged
hold-outs and both are said to have
signed with the Montreal Wanderers
Hyland's position ia different to that
0| Johnson. His brother 1'erbert is
