Mr. Hays, stating that the prices for
lots would be fixed after the company's
surveys were completed.
In reply to a question from the chief
justice Mr. Frewen said his own selection of lots was made with great care but
he  had  avoided  picking  all  thebest.
"What proportion of corner lots
appeared in the list of your selections?"
asked the chief justice.
"Less than-one-sixth," was the reply.
Mr. McPhillips, counsel for plaintiff,
asked for the production of the record
of prices.
"They are on their way from Winnipeg," said Mr. Davis, counsel for defendant.
The chief justice asked that evidence
be brought out dealing with the point
as to whether the agreement did or did
not come within the limit of the stature
of frauds. If no prices were communicated to Mr. Frewen was the bargain completed? he asked.
Mr. Davis said he would bring evidence as to that, and for 'the production of this evidence an adjournment was
allowed to Monday.

DANCES AND ENTERTAINMENTS
MUST PAY THEIR OWN WAY
Council Will Not Grant Permission
to Sell Prom Stands on Street
Corners. ��� Engineer Milne Asks
for $500 on Account.
A few communications and a couple
of reports from committees is all that
occupied the attention of the council
last night and at an early hour the aldermen went into committee to discuss
the Local Improvement By-law.
Those present were acting Mayor
Mobley, Pattullo, Smith, Mclntyre,
Hilditch and Lynch. ���
The minutes of the last meeting were
read and adopted.
Communications were received and

From Jas. Milne, consulting engineer
on the electric light plant, and enclosing
his report on the probable cost and the
rates to be charged.
From the Pacific Coast Fire Supply
Company of Seattle, offering to submit
quotations on fire fighting apparatus.
In discussing the letter from the
Publicity Club the aldermen were very
much opposed to it, and Aid. Pattullo
and Lyrwh moved that the secretary
be notified that the council was unable
to assist in this matter.
The aldermen feel tlrot such things
should pay their own way.
J. S. Beaubieu applied to be allowed
permission to set up a stand on the corner
of Sixth street and Second avenue.
On motion of Aid. Lynch and Aid.
Pattullo, the petitioner will be notified
that the council cannot see its way
clear to grant such permission.
The streets committee recommended
that the city supply the material for the
drain across Mr. McLellan's lot on
Second avenue.
Aid. Pattullo and Aid. Lynch i oved
that this matter be referred to th, city
solicitor to report on first���Carried.
A report was received from Jas. Milne
on his work in connection with the plans,
etc. for the electric light plant. He asked
the city to pay him on account $500.
His total expenses to date are over $1000
���Referred to the financial committee.
Jas. Milne also submitted a report
on the cost of the plant. It was referred
to the light and telephone committee.
The council then went into committee
on the local improvement by-law.

ON  EDGE  OF A  STRIKE.
Trainmen Refuse  to Accept Award
of  Conciliation Board.
(Special to the Optimist)
Montreal, June 23.���The Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen has refused
to accept the award of the board of
conciliation and a telegram to this
effect has been sent to the minister of
labor. The next step is awaited with some
apprehension and the general opinion
is that a strike will be declared. The
leaders admit they may be forced into
that position where they cannot help
themselves in the matter, but indignantly deny the reports that have been
published that such a strike would be
attended with violence on the part of
the strikers.
UNIVERSITY COMMISSION  HERE.
Looking Over Prince Rupert
as a Probable Site.
Prominent Educationalists Arrived in
Prince Rupert and Looked Over
the City���Visit Unknown to Public
���Leave for Victoria To-night.
The university commission which will
decide upon the location of the University
of British Columbia, arrived in Prince
Rupert yesterday noon on the Prince
Rupert and will leave tonight on the
same boat for Victoria. The vis
itors are some of the most distinguished
educationalists in Canada and Prince
Rupert feels honored by their visit
whether this town is elected for the
new institution or not.
The personnel of the commission is
R. C. Weldon president of Dalhouse
University at Halifax and the man who
has started more great men on their way
to prominence than any other in the
country. Among his pupils are Premier
McBride and Attorney General Bowser;
Rev. Canon G. Dauth, vice vioar of
Leval University, Montreal; Dr. C. C.
Jones, Chancellor of the University of
New Brunswick at Fredericton; O. D.
Skelton, Professor of Political Economy
in Queen's University at Kingston, Ont.,
and W. C. Murray, President of the
University of Saskatchewan at Saskatoon.
These gentlemen were commissioned
by the provincial government to visit
the principal centres in British Columbia
and make a recommendation as to the
city or town which would be best suited
as the seat for the provincial university
and the educational capitol of the
province. They have been laboring
with that end in view for the past six
weeks   and   have   visited   Revelstoke,
Vernon,   Nelson,   North   Vancouver,
Vancouver, Victoria, New Westminster,
Kamloops and last but not least, Prince
Rupert.
President R. C. Weldon and Dr. C. C.
Jones said to the Optimist yesterday
"We arrived on the Prince Rupert
yesterday and have gone carefully
over the town and will leave this evening again for Victoria. As far as the
university subject is concerned we cannot say much. We are only to determine the location. We have nothing to
do with the particular site. We have
been very favorably impressed with
Prince Rupert and it is extremely interesting to watch the development here.
We believe that a great city will be built
up here and that Prince Rupert will take
a prominent place in the world's commerce. We are more than surprised at
and impressed with British Columbia
and its resources. It is a splendid province with a great future."
"Will you visit any other towns before you prepare your report?" was asked by the Optimisy.
"No replied Mr. Weldon, we go to
Victoria tonight and then back east. We
will likely reach an understanding as
to our report while in Victoria, although
the report itself will probably not be
presented until later on."
"Have you been met by any committee since your arrival?" queried the
newspaper man.
"No," was the answer." we sent no
notice ahead as we prefer to work quietly
Some towns do themselves harm by
advertising our visit in advance. We
did not wish to be discorteous to Prince
Rupert but we prefer to be left free of
any committee or deputation."
This   afternoon    the    commissioner
intended to complete their work an^
depart on the Prince Rupert at 8
this evening

NO DECISION
FOR A WEEK
MESSAGE RECEIVED BY ACTING
MAYOR   MOBLEY
Matter Referred to a Full Meeting of
the Cabinet, Which Will Be Held
Next Week ��� Early Decision Is
Not Expected.
There will be no decision on the city's
application to the government for 300
inches of water from Woodworth lake
until next week. The parties interested
were heard yesterday and last night,
while the council was in session.
Acting Mayor Mobley received a
wire from Mayor Stork who is with the
deputation in Vancouver. It is hardly
expected that the decision will be given
before July 1st or, until after the option
held by the citizens, has expired. The
telegram received by acting Mayor Mobley is the only message received on the
matter and it is as follows:-
Vancouver, June 22, 1910.
Acting Mayor F. H. Mobley :
Decision re application for water record deferred to full council meeting
next week. F. STORK, Mayor.
THREE SHOT BY
BANK ROBBER
COOL DARING AND DETERMINATION REMARKABLE
Exploded Bomb in Adjoining Building to Distract Attention and then
Entered Imperial Bank and Killed
Manager of Institution.
Chancery Court Decision
London,   June   23.���(Special)���The
chancery court has granted the applications of the British Columbia Electric
company for permission to acquire gas
works,  mining and  lumber  properties.
(Special to the Optimist)
Frcidburg, Hesse, June 23.���A most
dramatically-thrilling attempt to rob
a bank took place here yesterday. The
robber demonstrated his coolness, daring and determination in the most remarkable manner. He did rob the bank
and he escaped earthly punishment.
The nefarious scheme of the robber
was well laid. First he exploded a bomb
in a building adjacent to the Imperial
bank, which was the institution he purposed looting. The explosion of the bomb
naturally called public attention in that
direction, and while the assembled crowd
were wondering at and investigating
the occurrence the robber entered the
bank. All but the manager had been
called to the front of the building by the
explosion and the manager was alone.
He resisted the entrance of the robber
and was shot.
The robber then entered the cashier's
cage, grabbed up all the gold and bank
notes he could find and while the crowd
was still distracted over the bomb ex-

" ALLEYS IN DUNEDIN BLOCK
Special Arrangement for Ladiea to
Bowl in the Afternoon.���A Healthy
and Exciting Game That is Popular   in   Other Cities.
The bowling alleys in the Dunedin
block, Second avenue, are now in
charge of Harry E. Ross, an expert
bowler and a first class man in the alleys.
He has had years of experience as manager of alleys in other cities including
North Yakima where he was particularly successful. It is Mr. Ross's intention
to get several teams organized in Prince
Rupert at once and start the first
tournaments. Valuable prizes will be
hung up and everything done to make
the game attractive. One night a week
will be set aside for team bowling.
Special arrangements will also be made
to accommodate the ladies in the afternoons. The game of bowls is popular
in social circles in many of the cities in
Canada and also in the states. It will
also prove to be popular here once the
ladies break the ice and play their first
game.
There are four modern sound proof
alleys which are well lighted. All who
are interested in the game should assist
Mr. Ross in getting the clubs organized.
LAUNCHING NEW STEAMER
Prince   Rupert's   Lusitania   Christened in Kaien Harbor.
Observant citizens might have noticed
yesterday a new vessel proceeding along
Second avenue and down Centre street
to the waterfront. It was not proceeding on its own steam but on a truck.
Arrived at the launch float the local
Lusitania took the water like a duck, but
soon showed signs similar to those a
duck would show if perforated by No.2
bird shot under the left flipper. She
keeled over, and the crowd of godfathers at the christening cruelly
laughed, But the next time she comes
up to the font she will be all right and
perhaps prove a hummer.

CONESSES TO
MURDER CHARGE
CLAIMS HE KILLED FARMER IN
SELF   DEFENCE
Victim Believed to have had Twenty-
five Thousand Dollars in His
Possession at Time He Was Murdered.���Woman   in   Case.
Portland June, 23.���Jesse Webb, the
printer arrested on suspicion of having
murdered William Johnson, a farmer,
has made a confession. He admits that
he killed the man but says it was the
result of a quarrel and that the fatal
blow was struck in self defence.
The police have discovered that the
woman arrested as Mrs. Johnson was
not his wife but a woman who had been
living with the deceased named Mrs.
Kersh. They declare that she planned
with Webb to murder Johnson, to take
his money and then elope. This they
were in the act. of doing when arrested.
The $25,000 which the deceased was
supposed to have in his possession is
missing and no trace of it has yet been
found.
Grant for Stewart Sewers
Victoria, June 23.���Government will

HAZARDS   OF   LOGGERS
More Fatal Accidents than in Other
Occupations.
Casual investigation of the records
of coroners' reports and inquest verdicts
for a period of twelve months past discloses the surprising fact that the men of
the provincial lumber camps give up
their lives in their perilous occupation
or are bruised and fatally maimed if not
killed outright by accidents therein, more
often than the followers of any of the
other extro-hazardous trades, not excluding railroading, coal mining or
powder manufacture.
The chance of death with the lumberjack is "all in the day's work."
His calling removes him from his
family or his friends other than those
of the camp; and ��� the fatal accident
when it does come to claim him as another victim in the conquest of the forest, as a general rule is heard of by the
outside world days or perhaps weeks,
after its occurrence.
Coroners' inquests In the cases of
sudden or violent deaths in the logging camps may be roughly computed
as in the ratio of one in three of such
humble tragedies, the cases of obvious accident being so many that official investigation would be merely
a vexatious formality, and therefore is
dispensed with. No fewer than three
reports of this character were contained in the attorney-general's mail
recently, two being from Dr. Jeffs
of Vancouver, and the third from one
of his Kootenay confreres. These
three reports give one a glimpse into
the perpetual menace of the logger's
life. One of the victims whose death
is told of was John Beck, employed
at Nels Moran's camp at Hemming
Bay.
"On May 19," the coroner, Dr.
Jeffs, reports, "he was engaged with
Thomas Fladerland in felling a tree
When the tree started to fall, both
ran to what they considered a safe
distance. But the tree in falling struck
a dry tree, the top of which broke in
several pieces. One of these struck the
deceased on the head, fracturing his
skull.. Death must have been instantaneous. No inquest was considered
necessary."
Charles Johnson was a logger engaged at Evans Bay, Read Island,
with John Swanson in getting out
timber on contract for Walron Campbell. Swanson, who brought the body
of his partner to Vancouver, told the
story of how death came to Johnson
and Dr. Jegs recorded the tragedy in
a few brief but sufficient lines:
"Johnson remained on the springboard when the tree started to fall.
The top of the tree caught a standing
tree, and it slid back on the stump.
Johnson jumped, but too late. He
was caught and crushed against the
log, his head and body being badly
mangled.    No inquest was necessary."
Another case was that of Patrick
Morran a logger working a fortnight
ago in a camp six miles east of Cascade, and himself one of the picked
men of the crew. The' district coroner writes of the passing of Patrick
Morran:
"His death was cuused by a violent
blow in the stomach or solar plexus,
dealt by a long cedar pole which was
made to rebound when struck by a
tree that was felled across it. No inquest was adjudged necessary.
DAWSON TO IDITAROD
Crowds of Stampeders Dumped into
Yukon  Valley.
Dawson, June 14.���The packet Susie
which sailed today, carried nearly 400
people, two-thirds of whom are billed
for Fairbanks and 110 for the Iditarod.
A special privilege was obtained from
officials to carry 100 extra, included in
the number stated.
Many are sleeping on decks and
along the guards, where wood was
piled before days of oil. A large barge
carries baggage.
Thousands of people from Seattle
and other Coast points have been
dumped into the basin in the last five
days, largely for the Iditarod.
PASSENGERS BY BALLOON.
Propitious   Opening   of   the   First
Airship Line of World.
Frederickshaven, June 23. ��� Count
Zeppelin made a most satisfactory
flight in his dirigible balloon the Deut
schland yesterday, carrying ten passenger
and crew from here to Dusseldorf. This
is a distance of three hundred miles and
was made without a single stop. The
passengers expressed themselve as
pleased with the trip and the company
behind Count Zeppelin announces it
will at once get out a regular schedule
of sailings and add to the number of
its dirigible balloons for the airship
line as fast as they can be constructed.
Hikes   Back    to    Yukon
There is in Vancouver's submerged
world a woman pillowed in lovely idleness whose pagan beauty and dancing
mood draws men to her as bees are
coaxed to poison flowers.
Came into her spider-parlor one
Bill Lafrican, red - healthy, joyous-
minded as a summer day is long, and
big as a grizzly. Bill is just out from
the Yukon with a heavy poke, blood
running in madness, and the memory
of four gray years of snail-paced honey-
less days to live down in two weeks.
Bill was parched and starved for the
warmth of a good time and would have
filled his two weeks with golden hours
rich-orcd in wild pleasures.
He desired the light o' love all to
himself, but she held a dozen men
at her little heals, and her languishing life was already full of beewihe of
delight. So she gently told Bill to beat
it while his shoes were good and continue his spending jag in the next street.
She handed him the chilly-fingered mitt,
which saddened Bill, who is not deep
learned in woman's lore.
So from the temple port of Venus he
turned to whiskey for consolation. It was
an old trail for Bill, but the whiskey was
better than the liquor he had been used
to. He told his edda in the police court.
He is now a woman-hater. It's back to
the creeks for Bill. The sourdough
biscuits, the boiled tea, the fat bacon,
and the smoke of the smudge-fire will
be goocl enough for Bill for some time.
"Into each life some rain must fall"���
but never forget that rain is one of the
finest things known for the skin!
PROSTRATIONS
AND TORNADOS
DEATH    REAPING     HIS     USUAL
SUMMER   HARVEST
Fatalities Due to Extreme Heat Recorded in New York, Boston and
Baltimore.���Tornado Demolishes
Buildings at Gladstone.
New York, June 23.���Following the
great rainstorm of Saturday the mercury
has been climbing up every day and
yesterday it stood at 105 in the shade.
Three deaths are reported from heat
prostration, out of a number of cases
that were taken to the hospitals.
Intense heat is reported from other
points. At Washington, D, C, which is
noted for its mild climate, the thermometer registered 102 yesterday, an
unusual record for the capital. Three
deaths from the heat occurred in Boston
and eight serious cases are in the hospitals. In Baltimore ten deaths from the
heat were recorded yesterday.
Gladstone, Man, June 22.���A tornado
struck this place last night, demolishing
the skating rink, blowing down a factory
smoke stack and doing damage to other
buildings. The heat had been terrific,
reaching 102 before the storm broke.
There were no fatalities.
RAINSTORM OF WHISKEY
Good Old Maryland Rye Flows Free
Down    Hills
Baltimore, June 14.���After pouring
for a week it poured whiskey in Baltimore country Sunday night. Good old
Maiyland rye streamed out of 3,000
barrels down the hill over pastures and
potato patches to Gwynn's Falls, which
flows by the suburban towns which dot
the line of the Western Maryland railroad. For miles and miles the odor of
whiskey filled the atmosphere. The cause
of it all was the collapse of a nine-story
warehouse of the Gwynn Brook Distill
ing company near Gwinn's Mills from
the effect of the recent heavy rains,
which undermined the foundations.
There were 20,000 barrels of whiskey
stored in the warehouse, 8,000 barrels
of which went down with the portion
of the structure that fell.
TWO   MINERS   KILLED
Caught  Without  Warning  by  Fall
Of   The   Roof.
Fernie, B, C, June 18.���Mike Dannis,
single, aged 26 years, and F. K. Ozloski,
married, both Poles, were killed by a
fall of the roof at N. 3. chute, No. 6
seam, on Saturday evening.
Both men were working on the af
ternoon shift when, without warning, a
large fall came, completely burying
them. Workmen hurried to release
them, but they were dead when taken
out.

THE FUTURESCOPE.
Suggested extracts for the second  edition  of  vonDohlen's  Herald, issued   1920:
A grand opening of the Provincial Government wharf is expected to be
held sometime next year. This work was commenced when Hon. Richard
McBride was Premier of the Province. Several faithful old workmen who
have given this job their lifelong attention will probably lead in the procession  of aeroplanes.
It is rumored that the post office department intend opening the mail
service on the G. T. P. boats next summer. The announcement that these
boats had started on the Vancouver-Prince Rupert run in June 1910 reached the department some years ago but the clerks and deputies and messengers have just succeeded in unraveling the red-tape.
The mayor has given the blind pigs another 24 hours to close up shop.
This joke was originated by one Alfred Stork who was mayor in 1910.
The subsctructure for the Zanardi Rapids bridgeis now well under way.
New steel for the superstructure will be ordered as the original shipment
which has been stored along the grade has now entirely rusted away.
The debate on the question of installing a municipal electric lighting
plant has been adjourned by the city council until next week.   The Non-
progressives claim that having gone without lights for twelve years Prince
Rupert does not need them now.   The citizens have learned to see in the
dark.

consist of:-
The creating, opening or making of a
new   street.
The widening, extending, prolonging,
constructing reconstructing or altering
of an existing public street.
The paving or macadamizing or planking, grading or building any street,
lane, alley, public way or place, or any
bridge forming any part of a highway,
or a sidewalk, or of curbing, sodding
or planking of any street, alley or other
public place, or reconstructing as well
as constructing any work in this and the
previous sub-section. All other works
provided by the Municipal Clauses Act
as "local improvement work" will also
come under this by-law.
Such things as crossings, street intersections, bridges or public streets or
places considered by the engineer to be
of public benefit shall be paid for by the
city at large.
After the engineer and assessor report upon any work to be constructed
as a local improvement notice shall be
be published in at least one newspaper
in the city. To stop the work going
ahead the property owners interested
submit a petition to the council signed
by half the owners representing half the
assessable value. If the petition is not
received the council will proceed with
the work.
It will be noticed that this by-law
provides only for a tax on the lands
benefited by the improvement. Buildings, stocks and other improvements
on the {lands are free. It is the beginning of a single tax system..
It will also be notices that it does not
provide for a straight frontage tax, but
property, in the opinion of the city
engineer, immediately benefited shall
pay a proportion of the cost according
to the assessed value of such land.
The by-law does not set out any
street or district as a local improvement
district, but merely the general rules
to apply to subsequent by-laws that
will define specific local improvement
districts.
Before this by-law is passed another
evening will be spent upon it as a few
additions must  be  made to  it.

When the Grand Trunk Pacific's
new boat Bruno arrived at Masset on
her first trip she found the citizens there
had flung banners to the breeze from
every point of vantage about the wharf
and that a great crowd had assembled
to give a welcome. As the boat was being made fast the cheering was renewed
again and again. Then a delegation
went aboard and presented an address
on behalf of the citizens', praising the
Grand Trunk pacific for its enterprise
in giving increased transportation facilities. Captain Wearmouth made a suitable reply. After this corks began to
pop and general jubilation filled the air.
The address of the Masset Citizens
read as follows:-
To Officers and Crew,
Grand   Trunk   Pacific   Steamship
"Prince   Albert",   on   the   initial
Trip to Masset, B. C.
Gentlemen,���On this auspicious
occasion, marking another milestone
in the march of progress in this glorious
province, we welcome to our shores the
first steamship of the Grand Trunk
Pacific Line, which will add so materially
in the up-building, not only of our province, but of this section which, up to the
present has been so little known to the
outside world.
At the present stage in history, the
undeveloped sections of our broad
Dominion are attracting the attention
of the settler and capitalist. No portion can offer better advantages than
the Queen Charlotte group of Islands
which are rich in minerals, fish, arable
land, coal, oil, asphaltum and all that
is required to build up large and prosperous communities.
Within eighty miles of the terminus
of the Great Transcontinental railway,
we have a climate similar to that five
hundred miles to the South. The
soil is fit to produce all that is required
for the markets of the cities along the
line; in our waters are twenty-seven
varieties of fish which will be caught
and sent out to the world from cold
storage plants; fruits and flowers grow
in abundance. Our coal lands are now
being exploited, iron and gold deposits
are being taken from our black sands;
free-milling ore and placer gold mines
are being opened up; cattle roam at
will all the year round; farm lands await
the plow; timber for local use and export we have in abundance; schools and
churches and the enforcement of law
and order are the pride of our small
communities. The rivers and streams,
with a number of lakes afford the tourist
and sportsman an opportunity to visit
the Wands and view the grand valleys
and mountains and secure game of every
variety.
We trust the weekly service of the
Grand Trunk Pacific company will soon
give place to a daily steamer between
Prince Rupert and Masset. We wish
you to look upon our residents as friends,
ready at all times to greet you, and those
who visit the islands, and to render all
the aid in our power to advance the interests of all concerned in the development of the natural resources which will
mean so much for those already on the
Queen Charlotte group of islands, and
the thousands who will, we hope in the
near future, make their homes with us
in this the fairest section of the province
of British Columbia.

Surprise   Poker   Hand
When the Cleveland baseball team
was on its way up from the Southland
to open the season, Napoleon Lajoie
and Mrs. Lajoie were whiling away
their time playing cards.
They went forward into the dining
car, leaving the deck of cards and two
or three of the recruits sat down and
utilized the deck.
On the first deal the man sitting
with his back toward the engine opened
for five matches���used for lack of chips,
Everybody stayed in.
Then everybody raised everybody until they had to call on the reporter to
get another box of safety matches.
When this second box had been used
up, Bomebody called���not through any
lack of confidence in backing his hand
as long as they were matches on the
train to be used for chips; but purely
out of curiosity to ascertain what the
showdown   would   tell.
The man who had opened the pot
had nothing but four little aces���that
was all, just four aces.
Across from him sat a man with a
full house���three aces and a pair of
kings.
The third man held four kings and
an ace.
"Well, where's the rest of the aces?"
inquired the man with the full house
in a tone of vexation. "Where are
they at, I say? So far we've only turned
up eight out of a possible four. And what
about the kings? Here's only six of 'em!
The rest must be in the deck!"
It proved to be a pinnochle deck that
the Lajoies had been using, made up
of parts of two ordinary decks.
"Anyway," murmured the man who
had opened, "I know how it feels to
hold four aces and have everybody
come   in."���Cle'eeland   Plain   Dealer.
"Now is the sailor home from the
sea, and the hunter is home from the
hill"���but we've got it on them because we don't have to leave home at

Approach    of    Death.
(Special to the Optimist)
Calais, June 22.���The last body was
taken from the submarine boat Pluvoise
yesterday. All the bodies have been
taken charge of by the government and
will be accorded a public funeral. One of
the most pathetic incidents in the history
of marine disasters was the finding of the
log book. In brief terse sentences,
entered every few minutes from the time
the vessel was struck and sunk to the
moment when all hope was abandoned,
is told the doings of the crew, the condition of the air and other points, all
set down in official and technical manner. The whole shows a coolness in
the face of death that is in itself remarkable.
THE BLIND TO SEE
Section of Rabbit Cornea Placed in
Human    Optic
New York, June 20.���Through the
transplanting of a section of the cornea of the human eye, an operation
which was performed at Flower Hospital, surgeons hope that sight will be
restored to a Chinese merchant of this
city who has been blind for years.
The operation, which was witnessed
by a large number of surgeons, is believed to be the only one of its kind
ever performed in America. Dr. Von
Hippel, an eminent German surgeon
and the originator of the operation,
however was successfully transplanted a rabbit's cornea into a human eye.
Dr. Royal S. Copeland, dean of the
hospital, performed the operation. When
he first examined the eyes of the patient
he found the cornea or transparent coat
of each eyeball so opaque that the patient could not distinguish night from day.
Among the other patients in the
hospital was one whose left eye had
been injured so badly that it was
necessary to remove it. The cornea
of this eye, however, was normal and
it was decided to operate on both patients at the same time and use the
cornea of the discarded eye to remedy
the defect in one of the eyes of the
Chinese.
Both patients were anaestheticized
at the same time and placed on operating tables. Dr. Copeland stood between the two tables. First a circular section of the opaque cornea of the
eye of the Chinese was removed, Four
or five layers of the cornea were cut
through. The fifth was left intact so
that the aqueous humor of the eye
might not escape.
The surgeon then turned to the
other patient and removed from the
normal cornea of the injured eye a
section similar in size and shape to
that removed from the opaque cornea.
ThiB healthy section was placed in the
orifice which had been made in the
eye of the Chinese and the eye was
then bandaged and the other patient's
eye was removed.
 o
A   Hustler
Charitable Person���I thought y&u
were blind.
Beggar���Well, Cap, times is so hard
just now and competition is so keen
that even a blind man has to keep his
eyes open nowadays if he wants to do
anything at all.���Brooklyn Life.

PERSONAL
Gilbert S. McConnell is here from
Vancouver and is expressing his surprise
how the city has grown since his last
visit.
In last night's issue Mrs. L. W. Patmore was credited with having given the
roller skating party on Tuesday evening
The party was given by a number of
young men in the city and Mrs. Patmore
consented to lend her assistance and she
furnished the refreshments.
Lights out, head on pillow, and the
sure consciousness that we've been on
the square with all hands���and then
the placid dreams!

Poets are born not paid.
Flour by any other name would cost
