WISH TO  MAKE  IMPROVE
MENTS   AT   SHAWN1GAN
The growing popularity of Shawni-
gan Lake these la,st f2W years     has
brought home to those interested   in
the place, and also those visiting it.,
the necessity for  some  scheme  t. of
improvement by   which,  not  only  the
greatest amount of pleasure can   be
ob tain art  from it, but also a greater
amotmt of profit  in  one sense.   While
the number of houses  going  up   has
greatly'improved the lake-^is a resort
and has consideiaWy added to its at-
tiactivenlrss,   yet   a gMd   deal   more j
remains to lie done.   One of the most
pressing and  immediate necessities is
the improvement   of   lhe outlet
southwest   winds  blow  directly
the     stream  leading from  the lake,
and     dining along course  of  ye'ais
there has  accumulated  at the mouth
of the .lake, and in  the first few hundred feet of, the stream # large gravel aank.    This has .become so  notico-
aible during  the  past  year   that   this
summer the water .'.'m the lake is 4111-
usuall'/ high,  the  cause  bcinj--      the.
choakod    outlet.. If  this   impediment
were cleared away, the effect would
.  be the reel anna tion  of a great  many
acres of valuable laud all around the
lake,   the   improvement  of several   of
the  present  holdings,   and. rendering
availa-ble a minvhcr  of most,  desirable
...building sites, for it is the numerous
sheltered hays- which are. most
sought after for sulnirban homes.

.''Berlin,  July 5.���The Cologne   Gazette     prints extracts  from  private
letters written by,Prof. ���Roiiert' "Koch
who "went to "Germain East Africa at
the end of 1904 for the further investigation  of certain  tropical diseases,
showing that     he has already  made
important     discoveries      aLout the
; Tzetze Hy, and he says  that the insect can qe rendered harmless through
simple   means.
Piofessor Koch made still'more im
portant discovery that Trypfanoso-
niata microbes, which are present in
sleeping drops, exist in the Tzetze
fly. (He further discovered .in April
last- that the rel/Vpsing fever is
transferred ' to men through a small
sand tick. These discoveries are regarded here as of great importance.
The professor visited the Ohehe tableland which he found to he temperate and salubrious, and 'highly suited to European settlement.

The  ' police    commissioners     held
their regular monthly meeting in the*
city  hall last evening.    There    was
nothing of general inlterest done. The
chief reported twelve cases, in the police court   during   the  month,   seven
for gambling or being onlookers  at
a gambling game, one for abusing an
officer,   four  for Ijeiwg drunk and  in-

rousing reception to the members of

welcome in a way befitting the occasion   ihe     citizens of     Dawson havc

Mr. McLennan, a former Mayor of.
Dawson, ami a member vof the haul-
ware firm of McLennan & McFceley,
oi Vancouver, returned from the Yukon on the Princess May 'after an absence of three months.
"Business conditions in the north
are better than ever," said Mr. McLennan, "for the reason that during
the Tanana rush many thousands"
of dollars worth of old Dawson
stocks were worked oil' and new
goods, are now being taken into the.
district. Then again, merchants have
Tanana, and the field is therefore a

better one for those who have remained.
"When I got to Skagway on my
way out I met Commissioner Mclnncs on his way to Daw-son. From
what I heaul on the inside the commissioner will-be received with open
arms. His appointment is a populai
one inltho Yukon, and fee. will not)
I am sure, find any serious difficulty
facing him in the territory.
"Wlplc T was in Dawson the Waterworks Company, in which I aim financially interested, made a proposal
to install a svstem of hydrants on
the Dawson streets, in order that, the
city might have eflicient protection
in case of fire The proposal was
well received, but as Commissioner-
JVS2Tr1r.es hat not a t that time reached
the city no action could be taken by
the council. Ht'wcver the matter is
to come before the council shortly
after the commissioner 1 caches Dawson, and I am sure that the protection will he secured."

MORE  TROUBLE AT THE
PUTILOFF WORKS
St.  Petersburg,  July  5.���Cossacks
fired on the Putiloff Works'  strikers
this      morning.    The trouble      was
started    by      the arrest of  a  youth
while cntei ing the     works.   The police x suspect'i-d  him  of ha,ving dynamite   in   his      possession.   On   being
made 'a   prisoner   the; youth   drew a
revolver and shot     his captor dead
and   was  himself  wounded  by a .bullet  fired   by another policeman.
The slnkeis quickly crn^regated,
and the Cossacks were ordered to
to dispose. The soldieis charged upon them and fired a volley, causing
seveial casualties amojng the strikers. The excitement in the district
is inlense.

In addition to the blocked outlet

The original purpose of the Union  was a worthy one, and had its aims  and objects been -'ived up to,* there is  not an 1 athlete, not r even in the  lanks of the wjlc.i professionals who  would have objected to its rulings.  However,- the Union years ago adopted a provincial line of action," and'  could only sec wrong doing iu certain.  'districts, while, proftssior.Jtlisnr was  liuvipant ' beneath the-noses ot. its  mest prominent officials. There, was  little or no effoit made.to see that-  i1s most imp; ������tant rules have been  lived up to, "and depositions weresigat  ed ��������� by athletes .who.nevet saw tlie  writing on the documents; .but were*  simply told to write tlieir aame -on"a'  cei tain line, . while the. subject mat-,  ter was carefully covered1 by a triieet'  of white paper. The depositions filed  before ihe governing bodies,- were  simply" valueless, and gave another  ojicning for professionals to pose as  amateurs.. \\n , appointed, official ih  each district'" wh-" would have conscientiously performed ��������� h*fi duties,-would  havei barred many an intending competitor, -      ���������   ,   -  Another pcint which showed the'  lack_ of-backbone inthe Associat on,  was tlie manner in which it backed  down when it had dealings - with  strong bodies. The Capitals < were  thrown out la-?t year . because they1  broke the rules, in playing exhibit'on  matches with Tfcumseh and Brant-  f<rd, but when pressure was brought  to bear, not by the Capitals, but by  Montreal interests, the Senators  were ealsomined and permitted to fin-s  ish the* season, but Branjttord was  whitcwaslied to permit a contest for  the Mmto Cup.  The     Canadian   Amateur      Union,-  however,     deserves a certain amount1  of credit for facing the issue even   at  this late     hour.   Possibly, .should it  essionals to     compete     on the same  go further and     permit declared pro-  team as     amateurs, as is allowed in,  cricket, some good would be done to  Hie national game.    The alternatives  seem only to be that or a rigid.and  fearless enforcement of -the pure amateur idea.
