Fifteen to ten in lavor of the
Black Diamonds wan the resurt ot
their match with the Red Devils
last night, while the stately B. ami
A. s fell belore the Shamrocks by a
score of ten to three. In their match
witli tire Black Diamonds the Devils
struggled gamely; their combination
was very good, but their lightness
told against thorn. The teams lined
up:
Black Diamonds, Ouards, J. Eno,
A. I-lailstoncs;. centre, Saunders; lor,

Red Devils—Guards, R. Sanderson,
E. Thomas; centre, A. Kerr; forwards, 0. McMillan, II. Manuel.

It was rush from thc toot of the

that made the players look as if

and Ward were religiously checking
him and Leahy got away Irom his

The sausage machine water motor
waste water .without a drain on ',(.lat-
aere Street case, came before Mr. Geo
Thomson as magistrate this morning
when the action brought against
Messrs. Manuel & Plaskett by tlic
city was heard. Mr. F. McB. Young
appeared for the city, while Mr. R.
Simpson defended.
The action was taken under the
Health Act and the information
charged that tile defendant- "did unlawfully dispose ol liquid waste from
the premises occupied by the said
13. G. Panncl' and David Plaskett,
Gatacre Street, by allowing tlic
same to run on the said street contrary to thc sanitary regulations of
the Board ot Health.
Mr, McMurtrie and Mr. John Jones
wore called to prove that the water
which ran down the street made its
way into the cellar    of the Alibols-
fotil, Mr. McMurtrie stating that it.
was a cause ot damage ' to him as
the celiac .was made muddy anil the
oirt was carried upstairs on ('the
boots of persons going lo the cellar.
Dr. Wasson, Medical Health ollicer,
the principal witness lor the prosecution, gave it as his opinion that
while the water as such'was not a
rource of danger, it wns a mwiaoe
to health if allowed to run into a
cellar and remain there for any
length of time.
Mr. Plaskett lor thc defence gave
evidence that tine city had first cm-
ployed a man to make a drain, but
had afterwards forbidden the firm to
run the water on thc street unless
by way ol Roberts instead ol Gatacre street.
The Magistrate alter listening to
the evidence withheld his decision,
which will likely ,bc given ou Friday.

Provincial  Government   Has
Decided to Look After
Darcy Island
The provincial Board ol Health
through Dr. Fagan, the sccrotary,
has notified the City Council of Victoria that alter thc first of January
the board would undertake the. management ol the Darcy Island lazaretto. In announcing this, the Victoria
Times says:
"This action was brought about
by a letter Irom Mayor Barnard to
the Premier in which he pointed out
that a Chinaman had recently been
sen t to the Island from Vancouver
without blankets or other necessaries, unknown to the Victoria olli-
cials and it was not until tlie visit
by the inspector that this was discovered. The Provincial sutborities
while accepting the financial responsibility lor thc lazaretto, requested tlie city to continue to exercise
supervision over it, being compensated by the government for what ?hey
expended on it. Thc action of Vancouver, however, has determine- the
council to have nothing more to do
with the matter, and it now become
wholly a duly of thc government.

Mr. Thos. Cunningham, Provincial

One of the largest blocks to lie
put in as soon as possible is that
ol Messrs. Stirling & Company, at
Kelowna. This company has 300
acres prepared, and has contracted
for 2110,1)00 fruit trees of all varieties. The members ot the company
arc experts at the fruit growing business, and have tested the capabilities ot the Okanagan soil, do not
hesitate in investing the $40,000 necessary for the purchase of such a
large amount nl nursery stock.
Twenty thousand young trees shipped by Ontario and Oregon growers,
are now being inspected and fumigated at the Government station in tlio
C.P.R. yards. The ellect ol having
a competent and strict inspection ol
all stock entering the Province is
shown by the fact that British Columbia fruit is remarkably free trom
pest or blemish, which is owing almost entirely to tllc good work done
by the officials. Over 00,000 trees j
have arrived this month, and as this |

AUSTRALIAN COTTON.
The Curator ol the Botanical
Gardens at Polr.rciston, Australia,
writes that the r .' and the climate
ol the coastal tor i ri of the northern
territory of South Australia are
!„, Iadmirably adapted to the culture ot
cotton. In that region it is lound
in many places among the indigenous
vegetation, There arc, the writer
asserts, thousands ol acres ot lands
suitable for the growth ot cotton,
und blessed with a never lulling rain
fall. As yet,' however, no effort
has been made to introduce cotton-
growing in Australia.
"Some progress has lieen made in
the British Central African Protectorate. Two years ago, as an experiment, 61)2 pounds of cotton was
sent from the protectorate to England, and this was increased to 58,-
000 pounds last year, lor which an
average of eight-pence (1(1 cents) a
pound was paid in the English market. This year it is expected that
no fewer than 8110 tons will be shipped to England, and that treble
this quantity will be introduced in

JAPANESE PATRIOTISM.
A great deal lias been said and
written about the feelings actuating
the Japanese in their fearless rushes
against tho Russians. Many have
dismissed the matter with the comment tbat the Japanese, like many
Orientals, place but a small value on
human life; others lo a blind obedience to thc Mikado, a sort of un.
reasoning brute impulse that eliminates common sense and replaces it
with frenzy. Baron Siiyeniatsu, one
ot thc leading statesmen of Japan,
' comes to the defence ot his country
men, saying that the Japanese thoroughly realize the danger and arc by
no means careless of life; but that
they arc moved by pure patriotic
love of country that teaches them
what was incalctilated into the ancient Romans, liefore the enervating
influences of great wealth and luxury
held sway—thai if is a sweet and
glorious tiling to die for the fatherland. He cites in support of bis re
marks an imperial decree that certainty embodies a beautitil! ideal, the
Fundamental principle of ethics whicli
for many generations have been
taught to the Japanese. In part it
says:
"II is our wish that, you, our loyal subjects, nt all times honor and
obey yonr parents and love your brothers and sisters. Man and wile
should live together in peace and
love. Ile faithful to your friend. Prnc
tiee self sacrifice and self possession.
"fie just nnd honest in all your
dealings. He merciful. Do what you
can to help science and education. Be
peace loving.
"Educate your minds and try lo
reach perfection in evorything.
"Always think of thc commonweal and spread light among your
neighbors by good deeds. Walch over
the constitution of your country, and
olrcy its laws.
'•'Be ready to sacrifice your all,
yonr life, yonr properly, when danger threatens your country. Always
remember that yon owe your country
everything, and that you should exert all your influence to further its
interests."
The m-inilo, in giving these rules,
promises to observe them himself,
and makes the same pledge for his
successor. These rules are read lo

1ms been going on from time immetm-
o'riai, and it is the wonder of tlic inspector that there arc any salmon
left along the 'Northern Ilritish Columbia coast.
As a result of his investigations,
Inspector Williams recommends tlrjo
i appointment of three special guardians, one tor the Babinc Lake and
River district; one for Htuollon, and
one for the S-eens River below Ha/.-
eltoh. Tire special oltfccrs would bo
required to serve during the months
ol June, July, August and September of each year. Unless the special
officers arc granted the inspector
• states lhat the fisheries regulations
simply cannot be enforced, as the Indians pay no attention to ummaiids
unenforced by a show of tuthoirity.
Acting on instruct ions from Inspector Williams,  Fishery Olliccrs Hans
Helgcseu and Nordscbow went up tlie'
Skcetia and arrived at   lri/.el';,)ii    on
Scptcmliei' 0th last.    There tlicy en.

reached Haiiine Indian village, siny-
five miics distant from ffazelfrin
Indians    wns away, but Chief Alio
'rofireseti'te'd liinr.   Alio was with the
Babinc     Indians,   wiio werc fishing
seven miles down the IJnhinc River.
The fishery olliccrr: went to tlle Indians' fishing station on tlie Ilarliiire
River and there they found two barricades     thrown     across the entire
width nf the .stream.      Tlie barriers
were Irnlf a mile apart.   Fishing was
in full    swing,    and the river was
crowded    wilh Indians.    While   lire
lojvcr barricade stopped all the salmon, the Indians occasionally avowed sonic through so lhat the operators of the upper barricade could secure  a lair supply of fish.      There
barricades were stoutly and seicnliii-
cally built.    Posts were driven  into
ihe bed of the stream at intervals ol
eight leet.   At this point the river is
two hundred feet deep. Sloping braces hacked up the posts, and across
the entire wall were stout stringer:;
banked vertically on tlie npriver side
with panels of slats interwoven witli
bark. Thc wall reached from thc bed
of   the    river   lo a point four feet
aliave water-level.   Not a single fish
could penetrate thc barrier.
In the uprives side of thc dam
were round thirteen tishtraps or bins,
each set opposite a hole made in the
panels. Through these holes, which
could be opened and closed at will,
the fish could pass up and into the
bins, 'i'he opening would then ■ he
closed and thc fish removed from tlie
bins with gaff hooks.
Ollicer  Ilclgescn  lound  Chief Alio
an old man, and informed him that
the barricades    must lie destroyed ;
tbat thc Indians must not fish tnoro
Ulan a third of the channel with nrrd
or other contrivances, and must also
observe the close season.   Alio   answered that the Indians' rights    to
barricade rivers had not been disputed in tlie memory ol man-    II it was
taken away,    tlic old people   would
starve.    Tlic Indians must sell   fish
to secure other food for themselves,
Alio observed that it wgs unjust lor
the Government to stop the Indians
catching salmon fur sale, when    it
allowed the emitters lo do the   very
thing,   lie complained that the fanners on the lower Skeena did     not
allow many fish tn come up stream,
mid sometimes the Indians could not
ealcli sufficient lor their needs. Years
ago the water below his barricades
had liecn alive with a solid mass   of
lisli, but latterly   Ulc   supply    was
trcniiiiishiiig steadily.
Some of tllc Indians at this conference were inclined lo resist tho
officer,' Finally, however, Helgcson
prevailed on six men to accept wages
to destroy  llie    barricades.    Suhse-
On September 21 the officers reach-,
cd Fifleciimilc River. It was deserted, hut two thousand llsh were counted    on    the racks.   The barricade
was    destroyed.     A short distance
above the ■ barricade a pormanent dam
was    discovered!    Behind it was a
multitude   ol    dead and dying fish.
The .stench    from the decaying fish
was something frightful. This  dam
was   chopped    out and the channel
cleared.
Beaver River at the head of Bahine Lake, was reached on September 22. Hall a mile upstream another barricade was found. All the
Indians had left, as the fishing was
over. If not prevented by the barricade, the salmon would go up the
Beaver ten miles to Bear Creek to
spawn. Thc barricade on the Beaver had two tunnels leading to traps
It was chopped out.
It is estimated hy tlic officers that I
tiicre arc a thousand Indian families in the district, or about three
liousand Indians altogether. One
thousand dried salmon arc required
by each lainily every year which
makes a total of 1,000,000 fish necessary to the sustenance of life.
The fish nob required lor food are
traded by the Indians to storekeepers, trappers, prospectors and interior Indians, and it is estimated altogether 2,000,0110 must he slaughtered every year near the spawning
graunds liefore they have a chance
to spawn.

Upon the execution of La Belle it

steps as were necessary to have the
body decently interred, in the doing
of which cither expenses and liabilities were incurred incidental to thc
said burial. The costs, charges and

In the Yukon World is given the
account of the filing of a suit iu true
territorial court that recalls a tragedy enacted in the Yukon two aod
a half years ago, in which Edward
l.a Belle and Victor Foumior killed
three men lor the purpose ol securing a few dollars. The men were
tried, convicted and executed. The
[World says:
'Many will.rcmcnih-r the revolting
circumstances connected with the
deed, how Bowdoin, Constantino and
Bouthillel were lured under the guise
ol friendship to a lonely islet near
th'.' mouth of the Stewart river and
there killed in cold blood, their bird-
consigned to tlic Yukon, which
later gave up its dead and made possible the Oxing of the crime upon the
murderers,' whose lives weue exacted
Ian the scaffold as penalty demanded
by inexorable justice.
Tlic incident would havo been almost lorgottch were it not lor thc
issuance ol the writ in the action
rclcrred to. At the time ol La
Belle's arrest and trial August Noel
was employed by the relatives ol
the accused to defend him and do
wharf was possible to shift thc responsibility ol thc crime to other
shoiildces, N. F. Hagcl, K.C, also
coming into the case as associato
counsel. Every effort was made to
acquit thc prisoner, and upon his
conviction an appeal was made to
the minister ol Justice in thc hope
that executive clemency might he
exercised, but all to no avail. La
Belle and Fuurnicr both died on the
scaffold a murderer's death.
But for the matter ol compensation for the work done at the trial
by counsel, the expense borne in connection therewith and tlic additional
cost of La Belle's interment, for
which it is alleged thc eastern relatives ol the deceased neglected to
settle the memories ol the dead past
would not now be dug up to bo
threshed over by the courts and

that as a system ol crime detection
it is showing excellent results. This,
system is thoroughly established
throughout England and Wales, has
been introduced into Ireland, and
many police olliccrs have come to
London from (lie colonics lo study
how it is worked at Scotland Yard.
A wing ol the Scotland Y'nrd building at Westminster is specially set
chart for this finger-print museum ;
il is ollieinlly designated "Tllc Con-
t Supervision Oifico." In the
quietude ol this block ol ullices In-
s|.color Collins and his staff arc daily classifying, pigeon-holing and re-
mining their prints ui the linger

United Kingdom.
I'he record room is pigeon-holed
elaborately, as .chemist puts away
fatal drugs; every criminal in
hi: own little receptacle; all prison-

the scientific examination of human
