AGAIMST COiTEACTOE
DUKE OF CONNAUGHT CAPTURES THE
HEARTS OF THE FRENCH-CANADIANS
His Perfect Mastery of Facile French Wins Their Admiration, and  the Tact and
Earnestness of His Speeches Pleases -He Looks "Every Inch a Soldier"���
Duchess of Connaught is Pleased at Being in Canada
(Canadian Press Despatch)
Ottawa, Ocl. 26.���There is no
doubt that the Duke of Connaught
has captured the hearts of people
who have met him, and promises
id make his regime as Governor
General memorable in administrative circles.
From the time he set fool on the
King's wharf at Quebec until the
moment when In-crossed the threshold of Rideau Hall, the uncle
of King George has been making
friends. He has not given the
impression that he desired to
condescend; on every occasion
when he has been given op-
portunlty, he has shown that he
lias no fear for his dignity by
allowing his cordiality to show.
Has Captured the French
He has made a most remarkable
Impression on French-Canadians.
His French is almost perfect,
a French spoken with liquidity <>f
pronunciation, a perfect mastery
of idiom, and an absence of
formality tif phrase. "I wish,"
said the correspondent of a French-
Canadian newspaper to your own
representative, that I could speak
French like that." The Duke had
just concluded his brief reply
to the welcome of the Si. Jean
Baptiste Society, and the tliousards
wht) packed Parliament Hill were
cheerl* g wildly.
Speeches Have Distinction
None of thc speeches which
he has delivered has been long,
but each has struck a note of
earnestness and desire to serve.
The first speech in French delivered at Quebec was an excellent example of ihe manner in
which he has been effective and
yet "different." He did not say
the usual things inspired by the
neighboring Plains of Abraham.
Instead,  by a few deft  sentences
he showed a deep and old mason
for friendship, a friendship for
which he wisel> inferred there
wns no reason to plead. England
herself, since Norman mingled and
married with Saxon was, and had
been, largely French by blood and
kinship.

HOW SPOKANE DID IT   A STUDY IN   GOVERNMENT BY
COMMISSION
Among the larger cities of the I'nitetl Slates to adopt the commission form of government is the city of Spokane, which at the lasi
census had a population of  104,402.
Spokane had grown up on a "mayor and council" form of civic
government. She had inherited most of the evils that grow out of
the mayor and council form of governmeni. There was friction
between the civic departments. There was a multiplicity of departments ami employees. There was inadequate supervision, because
it is Impossible for a council s]X'iidiiig bui one evening a week -ro
matter how honest and competent���to properly administer the affairs
of a large and growing city.
Worse than this there was a grevious waste and lax administration of the city's affairs, due to lack of business heads ard systems
of close checking in lhe civic departments.
Fortunately Spokane had a progressive mayor i.i the person
of Hon. N. S. Pratt. He realised the failure of the mayor and council
system, and in October, 1000, addressed an open letter to the people
of Spokane in which after instancing the failure of their existi. g
municipal system, he urged the wisdom of a change to the commission
form of government. He followed up the open letter, by appointing
a committee of seventeen leading citizens to Investigate and report
on an advisory charter of the commission type.
The city council tif ihat date were wedded to their idols. They
threw every hindrance in lhe way of Mr. Pratt, and the committee
of seventeen. In its later stages, the light for progressive gover.iiient
in Spokane resolved itself into a tight between the citizens and their
un represen tat ive rcprescn tal ives.
After the committee of seventeen had made a five months Investigation of the charters of all the commission systems then in vogue
in the United States, they reported to the mayor, recommending the
adoption of commission government for Spokane. The mayor passed
the report on to the council, recommending lhat they appoint a special
election to choose freeholders for a charter committee. The cily
council ignored the recommendation and sat tight.
Next a petition of citizens, backed by the mayor in person,
requested lhe council to act.   The council ignored the citizens, too.
Finally a voluntary committee of citizens filed a petition that
made the council sit up and lake notice. The petition bore the names
of five thousand and seventy-five qualified elector- of Spok.tnr, and
after several delays the city council made a show of consenting.
It w;is not, however, until angered by a year's delay the citizens1
committee obtained a mandamus from the Supreme Court of Washington ordering thc appointment of a charter committee, that an
election was permitted by lhe council.
Even after their charter hail been adopted by the citizens of
Spokane legal proceedings were instituted attacking ihe validity
of the new charter. The Supreme Court, however, iu a decision upheld
the commission charter' and Spokane, despite the opposition of the
interests, was left free to adopt business like inchods for the transaction
of civic business.
Although under commission government for less than a year,
Its benefits have been made very clear in Spokane. Harmony has
been brought about between the corporation and its employees.
Padded payrolls and needless employees iire a thing of the past. Red
tape has been abolished. A system of c'ose checking ujkmi expenditures has effected a great saving of public money. The five commissioners devote the whole of the time to the cily business, giving it
as much attention as if they were working for a private corporation.
The credit of the city has been placed on a high basis, siving Interest
on the city's bonds, and strengthenii g ihe cii>'s standing in the bond
market. Above all a great public interest, a better public sp-1"'- and
an improved moral tone in relation to civic affairs has been brought
about.
The method whereby this has been achieved will form the subject
f several articles iu this column in the future.
PASSING  COMMENT
The tradesmen hi the city are incensed at the action of the councl-
in holding up lhe checks of certain contractors. Just as in the Pi'iul"
hiininu* ease ihe reason why is obvious. Just as in ihe Prudhomme
case, it is likely lo end up wiih the citizens having to pay a legal bi.'l
for the council's fun in playing a child's game of polities. The trades
men are Incensed because it is they, and not the cpntractors who!
suffer most from the council's tardiness in paying its bills
There is no truth in the absurd rumor that the Mayor insists
on paying double rates for all the groceries and household goods he
buys from party supporters. li is only in civic advertising that he-
pays double rales���and then of course It's out of the public purse, Il
isn't his own money.

So Jones passed four hours with his
hend and shoulders in the temperature of a Turkish bath and the lower
part ot Mb body chilled to the bono.
Me thought nothing of lt at the time.
This   was  duty. Hut  at   Intervals,
throughout the rest of his life, the sciatic nerve would remind him of that
lonely watch. This morning he was
oonvalescent after a painful Immobility of two days.
Watching the boat, Jlm centered
her In the teloscopltf Held, and looked
anxiously for a sharp arrow-shaped
ripple on the surface of the sea. The
breeze which hnd vanquished the fog
now kissed the smiling water Into
dlmplos, aud IiIb keen sight was perplexed by  the  myriad  wavelets.
Each minute the condition of affairs
on board became more defined, He*
neath some oars ranged along tlie
Btarboard side he could see several
tins, such ns contain biscuits and
compressed beef. The shapeless mass
ln the bows puzzled him. It was partly covered with broken plunks from
the damaged portion of lhe upper
works, and lt might be a jlb-sall fallen there when the mast broke. 1-8
birds were busy and excited. He did
not like that.
Nearly half an hour passed. The
PrlnceBS Royal, a fine vessel of yacht*
like proportions, sprinting for the afternoon train, was about eight miles
away, sou'-west by west. According
to present Indications Btcamir and
derelict would be abreast of the (lull
Kock Light simultaneously, but thu
big ship, of course, would give n wide
berth to a  rock-strewn  shoal.
At last tho light house-keeper heard
ascending footsteps. This was not
Stephen Drand, but Jones. Jlm. whoso
rare irritated moods found safety In
stolid silence, neither spoke nor looked around when his chief joined him,
binoculars In hand.
Jones, a man of whitewash, polish,
and rigid adherence io framed rules,
found tho boat Instantly, and recapitulated Jim's Inventory, eliciting
grunts of agreement as each item was
ticketl off.
A clang of metal beneath caught
their ears���the opening of the stout
doors, forty feet above high-water
mark, from which a series of iron
rungs, sunk into tho granltu wall, led
to the rocky base.
"Brand's goin' to swim out. It's
hardly worth while slgnalln' to the
Land's End," commented Jones.
No answer. Jlm leaned well over
and saw their associate, stripped to
his underclothing, with a leather belt
support Ing a sheath-knlfo stung
serosa his shoulders, climbing down
the  ladder.
This taciturnity surprised Jones, for
Jlm was tbe cheeriest nurse who ever
brought a sufferer a plate of soup.
"It's nothing for a good Bwlmmer,
It It?" was the anxious question.
"No.   It's no distance to speak of."
"An' the sea's like a mill -poinl:"
"Ay, It's smooth enough."
"Don't you think ho ought to try It?
Every tine morning ho has a dip off
the rock."
"Well. If It's all right for htm an'
you It's all right for me.'
Jlm had urged his plea lo the man
whom lt chiefly concerned. Hc was
far too sporting a character to obtain the Interference ot authority, and
Join's, whoie maritime experience!
wero confined to the hauling In or
paying out of a lightship's cable, had
not the slightest suspicion of lurking
danger ln the blue depths.
A light spinsh came to them, and,
a few second! later, Brand's head and
shoulders swung Into view. After a
dozen vigorous strokes he rolled over
on to his side, and wavod his left hand
to the two men high above him.
With a sweoplng Bide stroke he
made rapid progress. Jones, unencumbered by knowledge, blew through
hts lips.
"He's a wonderful chap, Is Brand."
be said, rotitcntedly. "It licks mo
what a man like him wants messln"
Bbout lu the service for. He's oddl*
caletl up to the top notch, bu' he has
money, loo. Ills lodgln's cost the
whole of his pay. the missus says,
an' thai kid of his hns a hospital
ntiBH. If you pl.-ase."
Jones was grateful lo his mates for
their recent attentions. He wns inclined lo genial gossip, but Jlm wns
watching the boat curving towards the
lighthouse. The high Bpring title wns
at  Ull full.   So he only growled.
"You euii see with half an eye ho
has taken on ihis Job for a change. I
wish he was In that blessed boat."
.lones was quite certain now that
his subordinate harbored some secret
fear of danger.
"What's up?" he cried. "He'll board
her In two ticks."
On no account would the sailor mention sharks. Ho might be mistaken,
and Jones would guffaw at his "deep-
sea" fancies. Anyhow it was Brand's
afTalr. A friend might advise; he
would   never  tattle.
Tho head-keeper, vaguely excited,
peered through his glass. Both boat
and swimmer were ln the annulnr
Held. Brand had resumed the breaBt
stroke. The swing of the tide carried tho broken bow towards him. Ho
was not more than the boat's length
distant when he dived suddenly and
the cormorantb flapped aloft. A black
tin darted Into Bight, leaving a sharply
divided trail In tho smooth patch of
water creatod by the turning of the
derelict.
Jones was genuinely excited now.
"My Ood!" he cried, "what Ib It?"
"A shark!" yellod Jlm. "I know It
I warned him. Eh, but he's game is
the cap'n."
"Why didn't you tell me?" roared
Jones. Under reversed conditions he
would have behavod exactly as Jim
did.
Hut It was no time for words. Tho
men peered nt tho sudden tragedy
with an Intensity which left them
gasping for breath. Moro than two
hundred yards nway lu reality, tho
magnifying glasses brought this hor-|
or so close that thoy could see��� they
almost thought they could hear���Its
tensely dramatic action. Tho rapidly
moving black signal reachod the small |
eddy caused by the man's disappear-
uiiie. Tiictiinl'y it gteiii sinuous sinning body rose half oul of the water,
and a powerful tall struck the sitie of
the boat n resounding whack,
Jim's lirsi expletive died in bit
throat.
"He's done it!" Jones beard him
say. "He's ripped him, Oh, bully!
May tho Lord grant there's only one."
For a single instnnt they snw the
dark hair and Hue of tho man above
the sui-lnce. The shnrk circled nbout
innl rushed. Brand sunk again, and
again the glanl man-eater writhed in
agonised oontortlons nnd the sen,
showed musses of froth and dnrk
blotches.    The fluttering! of tho birds*
became Irregular nnd alarmed. Their
wheeling nights partly obscured
events below. The gulls, screeching
their flight, or It might be interest,
kept close lo the water, and tho cor-
iii,,ranis sailetl In circles aloft.
Jones wns pallid and streaming
with perspiration,
"I wouldn't have had It happen for
fifty quiii," be groaned.
"I wouldn't ha' missed it for a hundred," yelped Jlm. "It's a fight to tho
ilnlsh, an' the cap'n '11 win. There
ain't another   sea-lawysr on tho job,
nn' Brand knows how to handle this
one."
Their mnte's head reappeared and
Jim relieved the tension by a mighty
shout:
"Ho'll swim wild now, Brand. Keep
out of his track."
Sure enough, tlio ugly monster began to thrash the water and career
around on the surface In frantic convulsions. The second stab of the
knife had reached a vital part. Brand,
who perhaps hud seen a Malay diver
handling his life-long enemy, coolly
struck out towards the stern of tho
boat. The shark, churning the Boa
into a white foam, whirled nway ln
blind pursuit of tho death which was
rending him. The mun, unharmed but
somowhat breathless, clambered over
the folds of the sail into tbe boat.
"Glory bo!" quavered Jones, who
was a Baptist.
Jlm waa aliout to chant his thanks
In other terms when his attention was
caught by Brand's curious actions.
In stepping across the after thwart
ho stopped as though something had
. Btun ghlm. His hesitation was momentary. Pressing his left hand to
mouth and nose, lie passed rapidly
forward, stooped, caught a limp body
by tho belt which every sailor wears,
and, with a mighty effort, slung lt
I Into the sen, where lt sank Instantly.
So tho shark, like many a human
congener of higher Intellect, had only
missed his opportunity by being too
precipitate, whilst the cormorants and
gulls, eyeing him ominously, did not
know what they had lost
Then tho man returned to tho sail
and peered beneath. Neither of the
onlookers could distinguish anything
ot special Interest under tho heavy
canvas sheet. Whatever ll was Brand
apparently resolved to leave tt alone
for tho moment.
Ho shipped a pnlr of oars, and. with
two vigorous sweeps.    Impelled    tho
derelict away from lho charnel-house
nt in. ��� sphere which ovldolitly clung to
lit
Then tho shark engaged his attention. It was floating, belly upwards.
Its whlto under-akin glistening tn tho
I sunlight Two long gashes were revealed, ono transverse, the other
lengthwise, proving how coolly and
scientifically Brand had done his
work. An occasional ipaam revealed
that life was not yet extinct, but the
furtive attack of a dogfish, attracted
by tho icent of blood, which etlrs alike
the eh nI. ens of the air. land and
ocean, wai unresisted.
The rower etood up again, drove a
1 boat-hook Into   the   cruel Jaws,  and
! lasbod tho stock to a thorl-pii. with a
I piece of cordage.   This accomplished
to his satisfaction, he looked toward
the Oulf Rock for thc first time slnco
ho drew the knife from   Its  sheath,
gavo a cheery hand-wave to the shout-
; Ing pair on tho balcony, and settled
down to pull the recovered -raft close
to the rock.
"Ho heaveii ihe dead man overboard," ho announred. "so there's s
llvo ono under the sail."
"Why    do you  think ihat?"    said
Jonos, whose nerves were badly shake i,
"Well, you saw what hippos,  to
1 the othor |ioro devil. Either him or
tbe i cp'ii had to go. It 'ud be tbe
same If there was a funeral wanted
aft. Them there birds��� But cotno
along, boss. Let's give him a hand.'
They hurried down to the Iron-bar
< red entrance. Jones shot outward a
small crane lilted with a winch, In
caso It might be needed, whilst the
sailor climbed to tbo narrow platform
of rock Into which tho base-btocki of
the lighthouse were sunk and bolted.
Affording but little superficial spaco
at low water, there was now not an
Inch to spare. Here, at sea-loved, tho
Atlantic swell, evon In calm weather,
matter of activity. At this stage of
the lido each wave lapped some portion of thc granite stones and receded
quickly down tht slope of lhe weed-
covered rock.
Tho gulls and cormorants, filling
the air with raucous crlea, were nulling In rapid flight In thc wake of tho
i boat, darting over and anon   at   tho
water or mnklng daring pecka at the
floating carcase.
Soon Brand glanced ovor hi! iboul-
I dor to measure the distance. With
tho ease o fa practised oarsman he
turned his crnft to bring her stern
on to the  landing-place.
I "Lower n baskotl" he cried to
Jones, and, whilst the others wondered what the urgency in his voice
betokened, there reached them the
deep strong  blast of a slcam-whlsllo
I blown four times In quick succeiilon.
I     Each and all, they had forgotten tho
I Princess Koyal. She was close In,
much nearer than mail steamers usu*
ally ventured.
At first they gazed at her with surprise. Brand even suspending his
manoeuvres for a moment. Then Jlm,
knowing that a steamship trumpets
the same note to express all lorti of
emotion, understood that the ofllcer-4
had witnessed a good deal, If not all,
that had taken place, and wore offering their congratulations.
"Blow away, my hearties!" crowed
Jlm, vainly apostrophizing Ibe vessel.
"You'll have soinethln' to crack about
when you go ashore to-night or I'm
very much mistaken. Now, cap'n,"
he went on, "lake the cover off,    It's
allvo, I suppose. Is It a man, or a

To produce good printing you must "first catch your
good printer. . . You can't get good printing from a
poor printer, even if he work with never so good in
equipment. If he lacks the "knack, the tniin.'d
taste, the single-minded fondness for Ins work which
real printers have, he will do poor printing for you.
If he has all of these, and in addition to them ii'.e-
qnate modern equipment, your printing will have
distinction, salesmanship,  the lure of type-beauty.
As this offlce produces good prinlingyoll may infer

Richard Arnst, of Now Zealand,
world's champion sculler, who is

The sporting press of Paris is
unanimous in ita opposition to
the further matching of whites
and negroes in pugilisiic bouts
in that city. Writers declare thc
spectacle presented at such meetings is not onlj disgusting, but
farcical from a spurting siandpoint.
This means trouble for Jack Johnson if he attempts to light there.
It is known the champion is
planning such a move.

Players who will share in the
splitting of tlie receipts for the
world's baseball series are assured
of enjoying the biggest slice ever
handed out. In previous years
$1800 was a high water mark, but
When the present series ends,
indications point to the individual
players drawing down as much
as S3000 each. For the three
games already played the receipts
have totaled (105.014. Of this
the players are due to receive
S105.703, and the next game at
Philadelphia, the last in which
tlie players share, added at least
$25,000 to the purse. This means
close to the $3000 mark for each
of the winners and at least 81000
above the previous mark of previous world's series.

That girls can help win football
games even if they can't play
them was demonstrated recently
when the Med ford High School
team defeatetl Grant's Pass football team, 39 to 0.
Before the game the football
squad was given a luncheon prepared by the high school girls
in the domestic scieice department of the high school. 11 was
cooked according to the advice
of the coach and the direction
of the teacher in thai department
and was calculated to contain the
maximum of strength-giving power
antl require the minimum of digestive power.
Bean soup, poached eggs, toast
and spring water comprised the
menu. The girls cooked the
meal, waited on the boys, then
went to the game and "rooted"
lustily for the warriors they had
fed.
Their vocal enthusiasm was superfluous, however, for the soup
and poached egg players sjmply
swamped the Giants' Pass eleven,
wlio had to rely for nourishment
upon what the Meilford restaurants
offered.

With a view to clinching for
years to come the title of "tin-
fastest car oii earth," arrangements have been made by Jesse
I-'roelich, manager of the Bens
Auto Import Company, whercli>'-
"Bob" Burman and his manager,
E. A. Moross, with \V. Maass,
secretary of  the  Be) Z  Company,
will leave next Saturday for a trip
abroad to obtain tlie most powerful racing Benz ever built, a 300-
horse power car, which has been
under secret construction for the
last three months.
n n n
Not satisfied with  holding the
world's   speed   records   with   the
"Blitxen Bene," Burman seeks,
with a faster mount specially
built for him, to win g'ory on
foreign tracks. It will Ih* lhe
firsl time that an American driver
of note ever invaded foreign fields
for the avowed purpose of shattering all speed recoreds now held
abroad.

Oii his arrival in Germany Burman will ship tin- "Greater Blilzcn
Bens," equipped wiih American
tires and accessories, to tin- Brooklands track in England, where he
will make an effort to lower all

Celebrated French driver Meinery,
with the "Blitsen Benz." After
these  record   trials,  and   showing
what he can do on tin- English
beach at Saltburii-by-thc-Sca, Burman will bring the new 300-horse
power Bei'Z to the United Stales
anil arrangements will be perfected
at once for world's speed record
trials at Daytona beach, made
famous hist spring by Burinaii
in his "BlltSOl Benz," which will
also be taken along. Efforts will

REPOUSSE    LACE
Newest and Nicest Fairy Fashion for Frocks
All the new laces lhat have a
heavy raised design nn a net
foundation are now called repousse.
There is a wide demand for this
sort of laccwork, although it differs
from filet and tin* ecclesiastical
laces that are also in favor, There
never was a season like this one
for lace, anyway. Whole rooms

ihe big shops,'ard machine-made
and hand-made kinds vie with
each other in beamy and dignity.
Almost every kind of lace the
world has known has been revived.
.No gown or simple coat suit seems
complete without the addition of
some pattern. The huge Revolutionary revers are made of marvelous meshes, sailor collars are
cut from pieces of square laces

COMPLAINT OF
POOR DRAINAGE
City Engineer's Continual Prob
lem. , The Need for Sewerage
in the_Congested Section.
Complaints from the owners of
the block in which the Empress
Theatre is situated to the effect
that an imperfect drain passing
near the building was causing a
nuisance which it was desired the
city should correct, came before
the council last night.
City Engineer Davis was present,
and explained that this drain was
not a sewer proper, but merely
a surface water outflow. Owing,
however, to tlu* want of sewerage
in the district west of Sixth street
the residents had to throw waste
w;iler un the ground, and this
filtering through the drain gave
rise to the nuisance which invariably occurs In dry weather. During
rainy weather the copious outflow
of surface rainwater for which the
culvert is intended does not allow
of any odor. The drain is not
insanitary in the same way as
if it were a defective sewer, antl
the City Engineer promised to
see that the residents were convincingly reassured to this effect.
When a proper sewerage system
is installed in tlu- congested section
there will be no more of the
surface water trouble, and the
City Engineer mentioned that he
was engaged continually in planning inwards and carrying out
the initial stages of the work of
���ewer installation for the crowded
districts here.
LET   US   DIVORCE
Clever Comedy Hits Off the
Follies of Divorce Special
Matinee of "The Marriage of
Kitty" on Monday.
The opening play, "Divorcous,"
of May Roberts and her Company
will prove the greatest comedy
that has ever been presented to
the theatre going public of Prince
Rupert. It is a travestry on the
present day divorce laws and
tendencies. M. Henri Des Runnels is past the forty mark and
married to an expensive vivacious
wife who falls deeply in love with
an impecunious young artist. The
husband upon learning this state
of affairs decides to assist his
wife to procure a divorce. Then
when her liberty is In sight the
wife sees where she is wrong, and
ends by becoming Infatuated with
her husband.
"Divorcons," or as the English
translation has it, "Let us divorce,"
was written by Victorien Sardou,
the greatest of living playwright.
A special matinee of "The Marriage of Kitty" will be given on
Monday afternoon it being Thanksgiving Day. Many will remember
this play as being one of the
cleverest comedies in thc May
Roberts rt-|H-rtoire.
COUNCIL ARE
SH0RTJ)F CASH
Appropriation for Section One
is Almost Exhausted���Is up
to Finance Committee.
i ����� ii ���* ii n- ii ���*��� 11 n ii n i|Q
t^ti-M.-%n*Mi%nwim
A petition from W. Lynch, and
several other residents of the district around the Junction, requesting a seventeen foot plankway from the business district
along First avenue to the Junction
was read in council Ihst nighl.
This petition with others was
referred to the public works department, but Alderman Hilditch
remarked that the funds available
for such inmprovemeris this year
were already exhiiusued. The
works department, he said, would
put in plankway. just as soon as
the finance committee could give
them  assurance  of  the  existence
of money to do the work.
Alderman .Newton made enquiry
regarding the completion of streets
in thc business area where the
work seems left incomplete. Al-
tl-.rni.iii Hilditch remarked that
as he was connected with the
finance committee he should know
why these places were not completed.
The Mayor explained that the
financial situation briefly is that
the city has over a million and a
quarter dollar's worth of debentures to sell, but meanwhile the
appropriation for the development open Sundays
of Section One has become practically exhausted, and there is
hardly any money left for improvements in the outlying sections. Very few of these were
now being done. All petitions
for plankways were being hung
up temporarify until arrangements
had been made for the necessary
advances from the bank to meet
the cost of these.

THE HOSPITAL DANCE
(Special to the Daily News)
St. Petersburg. Oct. 27.���In addition to the annexation and incorporation of part of the Finnish
province of Yiborg for strategical
reasons, the Russian government
has now ordered the abolition of
the Boy Scouts of Finland as being
an unauthorized military organization and a pretext for the
dangerous cultivation among young
Finlanders of a national patriotic-
spirit hostile to Russia.
The Finnish press is naturally
indignant, and Russian Nationalist
and Chauvinist organs like The
���Novoye Vremya are jubilant.
While Russia has only been able
to use General Sir R. S. S. Baden-
Powell's idea to form a system of
"play so'diers," the Finnish boys
have turned oui real scouts in
every- sense. Nothing better illustrates the wide difference between
the Russians and the Finns than
these juvenile organizations of the
two countries.     ,
The abolition of the Boy Scout
societies in Finland is another
severe blow from the heavy hand
of Russia. It only remains for
Russia now to abolish the Salvation
.Army in Finland.

The horse, which was blindfolded

Half an hour later Jack was

worse for the thrilling dive and
journey down the raging Fraser
river.
Old Jack will be pensioned by
his owners after this season's work.
He is regarded as almost a member
of ihe firm. He was raised on a
ranch near Lethbridge and entered the service of Foley, Welch

Persistent reports that Harry
Thaw's release from the Matteawan Asylum is expectetl within
the next three months, are denied

"I  can  state most  positively
that Thaw Willi not be released
before January 1, or for some
time after," said Dr. May.
"Once or twice Mrs. Thaw
came to tlie asylum to see her son,
but I have never had anything
to say to her nor she to mc."
The superintendent gave no opinion upon the sanity of Thaw.
