VANCOUVER, BRTPisa Cap  SEPTEMBER 20, tSl2.  SB  COMMENTS ON LIVING TOPICS  (Prof. E. Odium, M.A., B.Sc.)  THS HONOURABLE JOSEPH MARTIN SAYS  THS THING WHICH IS NOT.  He says that "the reports which-youJn Canada  get are ALL from a Tainted Source?" This js not  true, and the Honourable Joseph ought to know  it is false. If so,���������if all the reports we get from.  England *' are tainted,." then. the reports which  Fighting Joseph brings to us "are tainted."  A tainted" report is a false reportIffa|se, it is  false through ignorance, or through a wilful lie.  Which kind is that brought over the salt water  by Mr. Martin!   He should know.     .  If he brings true reports, then his statement is  false���������-and if false in one thing, then perhaps in  many or all. :/J;: -yy  He says ������������������"���������In Canada I can see that the. great  majority believe the Bill (the proposed Irish Home  Rule Bill) is a good Bill." This too is short of  truth. It is not true. He sees a thing which is  not so. And Canadians know that iw uses his  eyes very badly when looking at anything of an  IMPERIAL nature. Anything that would lessen  the British power is the thing that this M. P.  could easily see with a rosy satisfaction. Hence  he sees the thing in Canada which does not exist.  * He says:���������-"The real opposition.to the Home  Rule Bill comes from Ulster, where a few thousand people are trying to dictate to the whole British Empire." This is not true. In the first place,  instead of "a few thousand" in JJlster thelreare  hundreds of thousands i*i Ulster, and hundreds  ! N>f thousands in other parts of Ireland and millions  in England, and hundreds of thousands in Scotland; and millions in the Over-seas Dominions  who are opposed to Home Rule. Mr. Martin knows  *fchat the Unionists are almost wholly opposed.  Then why does he tell an audience publicly that  only a fe wthousands in- Dialer., are .opposing  HOME RULEt J am afraid *i#^0**Os are very  much '���������tainted," if not dwwinnoesdandrotfran. *  He aaya:--" There is a great deal of talk at the  present ^������, ������b������������t war h*fc^^fl������2<L_ and  Germanv. but iomy mind THIS IS UNTlflNK-  ABLE*''  lie talks rubbish. That war is not only thinkable, but dangero*jsi*,:,near to action, is the opinion of the majority of Canadians, of the people  in Britain, both of the government and the opposition, and the statesmen of New Zealand, Australia  and South Africa. Why Mr. Martin tells the  public that war is "UNTHINKABLE".ia difficult  to ascertain, excepting on the assumption that he  would like to Ml Britain into sleep, and see her  unready when the deadly struggle ensues. His  talk seema to me to bear th" view of his inner  intent. Perhaps he does not know that he is  talking very loosely.  If the war were not probable, not possible, even  then it would be *'thinkable." He says the  thing that is not ao.  Mr. Martin asks:���������"Who among the Conserv-  atives here (in Canada) would support a hereditary Itouse of Lords!"  He ahould know that the Canadian Conservatives and large numbers of Liberals would and do  support such a House, for they are in hearty  sympathy with the House of Lords in England.  And as a matter of fact the said House of Lords  has in past ages been the salvation of Britain, and  will be again in the future against just such  unsafe and unbalanced men as the Hon. Joseph  Martin whose vision is the vision of the man who  magnifies bis individuality and importance instead  of the value and importance of the nation and  EMPIRE.  I have said enough to help our good friend on  the right track, if he be moderately teachable. If  not he must be furtrer whalloped.

Streetwalking is a development from simple beginnings; Vancouver has a large and rapidly increasing class���������this ancient and dishonorable  school. Children, girls and boys, may be found  on our streets���������large numbers from seven o'clock  until almost midnight. Curfew is silent or ineffective in clearing the streets of youth under  sixteen. Out of these strolling groups large numbers of professional streetwalkers and their patrons are sure to be elected.  Parents and police are both at fault in this  matter. "A .stitch in time saves nine" future  human wrecks and scalding tears.  ������K-������H������v*H������*>:*-K**.S*'WM i fttt <**"l"M"tlt1**'1 ' '  Westerly End of False Creek���������Great Public Work to Be Done Forthwith���������Will  Mean Great Development for Mount Pleasant. i  r Announcement is made that the Federal Government will undertake tbe dredging of False Creek as soon as preliminnry arrangements can be made. Mr. JJ. J$.  Stevens, M.P., bas just returned from Ottawa where he has been in conference with  the JJon. F* P. Monk, Minister of Public Works, in regard to this and other extensive undertakings.  It is theviutentio������ of the Government to dredge a ship channel 350 feet wide  and 22 feet deep, at low water, from the mouth of False Creek at English 3ay, clear  up to Main Street. This is the most extensive undertaking ever authorized by the  Pominion Government in this city. 1* will have a very decided effect on that part  of the city lying south and east of False Creek, and coupled with the proposed oper  aticpi ol the Canadian Northern should result in a marked advance in value*  throughout that whole district.  The city council committee and the C. N. B. are rapidly coming to an agreement  to the disposition of the head of False Creek aud we may expect an early settle-  rejoices over the presence of onr Royal Guests, the  Duke aud Duchess of Connaught and their daughter, Princess Patricia. Several factors of interest  add much to the honor and pleasure of the ooes-,'  sion.  The Qake is a son of the greatest Queen of -  all time,���������Victoria, and brother of onr late lament^  ed King Edward MI, also Governor-General ,oi  Canada.   To these may Le added, that, without  which all would be mere external decoi*ation%.**l*'3  A wealth of true manhood and a liberal endowment of mind which give tone and value to Royal  blood. i  These features are well supported and embellished by the other members) of the visiting party,  Vancouver extends a hearty weleome.   This ,  we express with pen and brush/ with music and *  parade, with arches and decorations, with astern-  bled multitudes and civic holidays that tbey whom  we delight to honor may know that thia Western '  Province of the Dominion of Canada ia loyal to  the British Crown and ardent in its love of onr  Royal Governor General. ���������  Sept. 18, 1912 wOl remain menrrarable in tbo  history of Vancouver, *narkin*r the visit of Their  Royal   Highnesses,  tbe  Duke and   Daehsas   of  Connaught and their daughter, thejPrimsess Patrida.           j^  ���������Kl i i ��������� i. m���������mm^^jmm  HIHIHIIillMIIIIIIMI������HHIMIIIIII  An Open Utter foVem to the at-ftl.     |  lUfiment *  Sixth D.

There seems to be no doubt as to the desirability of making a deal with the  C. N. Jl., but some few persons advocate such terms as would make it impossible for  any railway to acquire and develop these flats.  It looks very strange to see men wh> .-strongly advocated giving one-half of  False Creek to the Great Northern, an American branch line, now opposing a Canadian Transcontinental Road.   If we are not very careful New Westminster will  ;; steal a march on us, and secure this great terminal. At the present time Mayor | ;  Lee of New Westminster is in the East offering big inducements to the Canadian  Northern to locate in his city. The givat object of the Xew Westminster people is  to have the terminals located there, and sMiii-ly a branch line running into Vancouver. They could then, possibly, control the Victoria traffic and divert it down  the Fraser, in spite of the advantages which Vancouver holds. We are pleased to  mark the energy of our friends on the Fraser, but must say it would be a standing  reproach on Vancouver to have it said of her, that we adopted such a dog-in-the-  manger policy as to freeze out a great Canadian Transcontinental.  Mayor' Findlay and the majority of the council are favorable to closing a reasonable bargain with the C. N. R., some few are opposing. The draft agreement,  as published, shows clearly that the council are alive to the public interest and that  sotne very yaluable concessions have*been secured, such as:���������Three through streets  east and west, the cost of paving First Avenue, the laying of sewers, the provision  for the Pacific Great Eastern, that Vancouver will be the company's headquarters  for the West, permission for other railways to use their tracks, etc.; the company  to fill in a valuable strip east side of Main Street for the city, the company to spend  $4,000,000.00 for terminals including a magnificent passenger depot, the company  to compensate city for extinguishing of riparian rights at cost of $600,000.00 or more,  the company to pay half cost of-bridge from Scott Street to Carl Avenue, and many  other points, all of which go to show'that'.our city council are alive to their duties  and the city's interests.  As. we pointed out in a recent article the property acquired by the city along  Main Street will be immensely valuable, and almost equal the balance of the Creek.  It will mean 1650 feet frontage on both sides of Main Street, worth approximately  1 $2000.00 per front foot now, and double that in five vears when the depot'is com-  I plete. or a total value to the city of $6,600,000.00.  I But if some persons have their way we shall drive this company .to Xew West-  t minster and delay indefinitely the development of the head of False Crock.    The  ��������� dredging of the westerly part will be commenced forthwith and ������oinething definite  + should be done now with the head of the Creek.  * -H-*>*K-*X-****K-*^^^ *K-H-*K**K^-*-*K*������:*-i**^^^ ���������** ���������X-I-K**"*******^^ ���������  Son of tho noblest Queen  The world has ever seen;  To honor her we welcome him.

Toledo, Sept. 13.���������Hundreds of terrorized spectators on the county fair  grounds breathlessly watched the desperate fight against death made by  Frank Armstrong, an aeronaut, when  he was carried 2000 feet Into the air  by a blazing balloon.  Armstrong, whose home Is in Cel-  lina, Ohio, was preparing to make an  ascension and was straightening out  his parachute rigging when the balloon caught fire and his startled helpers let go. Fighting like mad to release his parachute, the aeronaut was  carried up in a tangle of ropes.  He succeeded ln cutting loose a  moment before the flames reached the  parachute and the blazing balloon collapsed. Armstrong made a 'successful drop, landing inside the race track.  >***4'*4t***4'*4'***4f*4'*4'*4>*4'*K******4***4'a****4-***4'***4'*i  TEETH  To be Healthy you must have GOOD TEETH.

Grandview Again Beats Fairview  In the last game of the season the  Grandview junior lacrosse team defeated a Fairview picked team on the  Cambie street grounds Saturday afternoon by a score of 6 to 4. The Grand-  view boys maintained the lead from  the first quarter, the score ending 3 to  1 in their favor'. They played fast  lacrosse, and never gave their opponent a chance to shine, completely  outplaying them from the face-off till  final time was called. Sanderson, Butler and hillingford played a steady  game on the defence, while JolilTe,  Ems and McEwen brothers were the  pick of the attacking force. The game  was well played.all through, and very  few penalties were handed out. The  Grandview team bave made a good  record this year, winning 12 games out  of 15, and drawing two. The winning  team lined up aB follows: Clarke, Sanderson, Butler, Dewar, Shillingford,  liffe, McEwen, Sanderson. Spares,  Hansen and Sanderson.

Commending, the aldermen for their  zealous efforts on behalf of the city  in connection with the negotiations  with the C. N. R., and urging them to  fight to the last ditch, the meeting  held under the auspices of the Grand-  view Ratepayers' Association on Saturday evening passed two resolutions.  One was to the effect that the city  should retain a strip of land 350 feet  wide extending from Main street to  Glen Drive, the location to be decided  as the council think best. The other  motion recommended that, the main  thoroughfare through the centre of the  area be reclaimed by the railroad,'be  kept clear of railway tracks, and in  the event of switches being Installed,  the C. N. R. should construct overhead  crossings.  These resolutions were passed after  the four members of the council present, Aldermen King, McSpadden, Enright and Woodside, had discussed all  sides of the subject. They explained  that each day they had asked a little  more and had gotten it, and that the  company was making concessions  daily. Tbey were of the opinion that  Colonel Davidson was trying to treat  the city as fair as possible. Tbey asked tor suggestions from the ratepayers.  Mr. Charles Reid, president of the  Grandview Ratepayers' Association,  who spoke Immediately after the al-  years ago, has decided because of th������; dermen, demanded at least half of  great demand for suitable living apart-j Fa|Be creei-. for the city, renouncing  ments and houses to, have all his lots jtbe aldermen's actions and alleging  built upon as soon as possible. , thejthat tney had been stampeded by the  smaller residences he will either rent iC  N# r, officials, at which the alder-  Both old and new customers may depend upon us carrying  the most complete stock of GROCERIES, PROVISIONS,  ETC,, ever shown on the Drive.

False Creek's Influence.  Tbe general concensus of opinion  among realty dealers is that business  is satisfactory. It Is confidently expected that with the deevlopment of  False Creek it will be still better. A  keen example of the False Creek agitation on land values is illustrated by  a piece of Grandview property which  a certain city firm is holding.

Arrangements have been made with the  various railroad and steamboat companies whereby exhibitors may pay  the full rate shipping their exhibits  or stock to the fair, and it will be returned free providing it has not  changed hands. Special rates will  be given also by the Dominion Express Co., which will have an office  on the grounds during the fair and  for several days before It opens.  Sir Richard McBrilde will be Invited  to open the Provincial Exhibition, and  according to information received by  President T. J. Trapp of the Royal  Agricultural and (Industrial Society  he will accept the invitation. The  Premier is a native son of Westminster, and is very popular here, as he  is 'over tbe entire province.  ; Farmers and stock growers who  have entered tbeir prize animals need  have no fear for the care of their  stock. At the last meeting of the  R. A. & I. executive two veterinarians were appointed to look after the  stock on the ground and their services will be at tbe disposal of any  exhibitor.  One of the most interesting features  of the annual Provincial Exhibition at  New Westminster, is the display of  Indian work, and the Indilans themselves.  The Indians have a space reserved  for them, and they enter the results  of their labor In competition for liberal  prizes. Manager D. E. Mackenzie, of  the 1912 fair, says that the Westminster Exhibition is practically the first  in Canada to recognize the fact that  the Indians will shortly have to turn  their attention to farming for a livelihood. To encourage them in this  the management each year pays  special attention to Indian exhibits,  charging no entry fees and offering  substantial prizes for the best showing. <���������  Six big vaudeville acat hare been  engaged to perform for the crowds at  the exhibition this year. These will  be aside from the regular pay streak  attractions and aide shows, and will  be free to every one in the grounds.  Hon. Price Ellison. Minister of Agriculture for British Columbia, has  written to Manager D. E. MacKensle  of the Royal Agricultural and Indus-  trial Society that he will be very  pleased on October 1 to officiate at  the dedication of the Horse Show  building whicb is now being erected,  in connection with' the Provincial Exhibition.  Victoria Fusiliers.  Victoria, Sept. 12.���������The new infantry regiment organized at Victoria under the command of Lieut.-Col. J. A.  Hall, with Major Beale as adjutant,  has been gazetted as the 88th Victoria  Fusiliers. The regiment wil wear  scarlet tunics with blue trousers, with  red stripe and busbies.  Major Beale is endeavoring to arrange for a military tournament to be  held in Victoria next spring, lasting  three days, in which all the units of  the naval anl military forces are expected to take part.  Naked Lunatic Swam River.  New Westminster, Sept. 12.���������A patient at the Provincial Hospital for the  Insane here yesterday escaped in  some manner from his guards, took  off his clothes and swam across the  Fraser River, a good mile swim from  his starting point to where he landed  on the opposite shore. The water  was very cold and in the course of his  trip he was carried underneath the  Fraser bridge where the stream runs  like a mill race.  Powell Secures Respite.m  According to a wire received by Mr.  P. K. Ahem, superintendent of the  Pinkerton Detective Agency, Seattle,  Martin Powell, committed at Detroit  for extradition to Canada on a charge  of robbing the Bank of Montreal at  New Westminster, applied yesterday  for a writ of habeas corpus and got a  ten days' respite.  This is regarded as a scheme to get  time to enable his counsel to appeal  to the United States Supreme Court,  as was done by MacNamara, an alleged accomplice, now in custody in  New York.  North Pacific Fishery Wealth.  Sir George Doughty, M. P., a great  British fish magnate, and son, Mr. W.  V. Doughty, are at the Hotel Vancouver, having just returned from an  inspection of the plants of the British  Columbian Fisheries Ltd., at Queen  Charlotte Islands. This new corpora*  tion waa organized by 8ir George and  has a paid up capital of 91,500,000.  The visitor stated' that the fishery  wealth of the North Pacific contlngu-  ous to the Islands were among Canada's greatest assets.  The new company employs about  20 men and will increase the number  shortly when halibut fishing will be  started, with a fleet of five large gaso-  lfine boats. The fish will be shipped  to the Eastern markets via Vancouver.  **** * 11 < 4<4"P4'**4**4'*&tt'+4t'***  Fraser Avenue..  Alleged Plot to Blow Open Safe.  An alleged plot to blow the safe of  the New .Westminster post office and  steal its contents was discovered last  evening at 9 o'clock by Nich Dann,  found guilty this morning in police  court of shop-breaking and remanded  for sentence until next Tuesday.  Dann told the police that his companion, James Jefferson, arrested on  a charge of having stolen goods in his  possession, and who will be sent to  New Westminster to stand trial on  this accusation, asked him to assist  him ln nitro-glycerlning the safe in  the post office, stating that it would  be an easy matter to accomplish the  job.  May Cruise for 8eal Again.  Victoria, Seut. 12.���������Following the  failure of the Canadian Government  to yet compensate tbe sealing men of  this port, who, after the sealing treaty  between Canada, the United States,  Russia and Japan went Into effect,  lost their main sources of livelihood,  tbe masters of the schooners will next  year apply to the customs department  for licenses to go on sealing cruises.  Several sealing corporations yesterday  announced that they had decided to  take this step unless the compensation  was -forthcoming very shortly. It will  be remembered that some time ago  representatives of the four nations interested In the treaty gathered at  Washington and it was decided to compensate the Canadian sealers to the  extent of $200,000.  Compensation   Not   Forthcoming.  The American Government was to  hand over this sum to the Canadian  Government, which in turn was to  appoint a commission to allot the compensation money. So far, the Americans have failed to live up to their  end of the agreement and consequently the sealers feel that they are being  unfairly treated, after being deprived  of the right to seal.

Professor Schaefer's quest of the active agency, in the vitalize tion of Inert elements has led him, I believe,  close to the hiding place of a wondrous fact.  But, although It should lead him  away from the "hot" end bf the spectrum, if he will take a good look among  the ultra-violet rays, I am prepared to  believe,that he will And the object of  his search.  We'know that the solar radiation,  decomposed, affords for spectroscopic  examination rays of 'three different  recognizable characters���������Thermal, Luminous, and Actinic.  We know tbat the Actinic ray. is tbe  active agent in promoting the assimilation of-inert elements by the organisms of the vegetable kingdom.  Is it not accordant with analogy,  and possible, and'not unprobable, that  A very pretty wedding was solemnized in Chalmer'8 Church, Fairview,  on September 7, at 2 o'clock by the  Rev. J. A.

After' the wedding a number of friends were entertained at the  home of Mrs. Webster, sister of the  bride, on' Seventh Avenue, where, the  newly married couple will make their  home on the return from their bridal  tour.

Stories of  his strength and his tremendous deeds  were table-talk from Mainz to Dantzlc,  and it was even said that his great  countryman, Eugene Sandow, would  have found It no easy task to cope  with the baron In physical achieve*  ment. The baron, however, was now  ln the position of a man who tries to  hold a wildcat with each hand, and  even his strength might have proved  Insufficient to restrain the kicking,  slugging captives had not half a dozen  husky fellows���������Germans, every' one  of them���������sprung up as if by magic all  around the trio.

They reported that nothing of any in*  terest had been found, and a quick  search of the prisoners turned up no  papers of any special value. Baron  *Zollern's face wore a bewildered look,  and began to cloud portentously aa  <he turned upon his captives.  "You haf hidden de bapers," he  ���������purred, ominously. "Berhaps ve can  ,flnd vays und means lo induce you to  ;dlscofer dem?"  "I have told you, you German sneak.  jthlef," snarled Brockett, "how the pa-  jpers were stolen. Ask your- men  which one of them went flaking  [through the transom, and you will  'have the one who got tbe messages."  Baroa Zollern walked over to the  ���������door of the room where the boys had  .slept. He studied the panels, 'the  'floor, the carpet leading from the doorway. He dragged a chair to the door,  etood upon it, and examined the transom. Then he returned to the wondering group again, his face a strange  commingling of purple, white and  crimson.  "It iss as you haf said," he rumbled, half-chokingly. "Someboty, climbing on a chair, fished ofer dot tran-  *wm.\I^t_nie_see_your coat.   Ah-h���������  I baffled at his own game, and, in the  very trap h# had prepared, had been  beaten to the prize by some unknown  scoundrel. Brockett, heartsick and  desperate, could almost sympathize, in  the midst of his own troubles, with the  disappointed Teuton. For several minutes Baron Zollern, clenching and unclenching his handB, the mottled colors playing back and forth across his  face, leaned heavily against the wall.  Then be shook himself together, and  forced* a grim smile to his lips.  "I Manned it veil, young chentlemen," said he. "You yonder how It  vos dot I could do such tings in dis  hotel?

I la the cat* of twootl animals and  particalarl*' among hogs It may be said  that their present means of getting a  livelihood la so radically different from  those upon which their progenitora da*  ponded that it la a surprise tbat wa  have so Uttle pestilence and dlseaaa  among oar herds, says tbe Iowa Homa-  stead. Great aa is tbe annnal loss  from cholera and other causes, wa tie*'  peat that this toss la small compared  with what might be expected when the  conditions under which bogs are leapt  are taken Into account  The ohanga that we would enforce fn  the manner of handling hogs would be  to make rustling a compulsory matter.  This applies not only during tbe breeding season, but during the entire gestation period. We believe In liberal feed*  ing method* from tbla time until the  sows are safe In pig and even until  farrowing date tbey ought to be kept  gaining a Uttle every day. The gain*  ought to be made not by piling it on in  tbe form of fat, but rather by growth  and development of tissues from tbe  right kind of foods and a safe aud sane  plan of exercise.      .  In tbe matter of exercise one successful Iowa breeder never allows his  sows to loaf around their "sleeping"  quarters a single day during tH������* lute  fall and winter save only when the  wealber Is so stormy as to cause tiietn  great discomfort.

Silage Far Ewes.  In the wintering of pregnant ewea  the safety of a large, lone ration of  silage with grain has aot been definite- ,  ly worked out. although the'Iowa station badxso*ne good results the past  year by feeding silage alone with a  grain ration of oats and bran. Where  silage and cottonseed meal were fed  (cottonseed meal furnishing the necessary protein, and. by the way, silage  needs considerable protein to balance  It up) the ration did not produce as  good **ea*iifc*. Although the lambs were  quite strong at birth and showed vigor, they revealed a'tendency to have  smaller bone than lambs produced  upon a ration containing some clover  bay.���������Iowa Agriciiituiist  *Ht*wp as Producers.  Sheep are economical producers.  Tbey can make a pound of inutton  from less grain than can a hog or  steer to make pork and beef. It baa  been estimated that a lamb can make  100 pounds of gain on 100 to 160  pounds leas feed than a pig. On the  average cattle require 600 pounds of  grain to produce 100 pounds of gain.  hogs 400 pounds and sheep 200 pounds.  ***��������� <*\������  DAIRY   WISDOM.

Every one who Intends to undertake  to raise draft horsps should look before  heVl^aps. says the Country Gentleman.  Tbe same qualities are desirable in all  breeds of these horses, hut unfortunately all tbe desirable qualities are  not conOued to u single breed. For in  atiince.. there Im no breed equal to the  Clydo.sdnlp in hind pastern; tbe Suffolk  hu.s good feet, superior bowels and a  disposition equaled by none; tbe Shire  has more size; the Percherou an attractive carriage, smooth legs and a  style and co'or pleasing to those who  like the grays and blacks. The Belgian lias* fewer admirers becau:������V ti������  lacks nation, yet be la aturdy and a  "pli'udi'l doer  Thore are splendid animals of all  breeds, yet tbe undesirable will always  predominate. Soundness must be the  first quality. In a ntallion feet must  always be marked down as quality No  2. Small and shelly feet are often  transmitted from Htallion to foal. 'The  foot should be round and wide at the  heel, aud the born should be tot gh.  Disposition should be placed third.

Real estate j  men report an increasing demand for (  uilding  lots,  and  large  transactions [  ire being recorded daily. j  The modern Belgian can be described as wide, massive, ample,  round and compact in conformation, says the Breeder's' Gazette.  The head is shorter than the Flemish, the ears are short Snd thick,  and the face is rather lacking In ex-  prttssioii. The npok Is characteristic\  of the breed, being short and mas-'  slye and surmuunted with a short,  d������hse mane-of coarse hair The  withers sre wide and thick, but not  i'������rjr high. The back Is wide and  strong, but a little swayed, while  the croup, owing to its superabundance of muscle. Is double. The  shoulders are strong, the knees wide  ond flat and the canons short. There  are soma blades and many roans.  but .the prevailing colors are bays  and chestnuts. The general appearance of a Belgian denotes enormous  strength, coupled with a calm temperament, more or less lymphatic.

H. Johnston,  to be severely Injured.  It appears the automobile party was  on Ita way to Eburne, when the accident occurred, but few details can be  got from, ifhe police,  although the  driver of the car, who did not even  have a scratch, has been taken in  custody on a charge of manslaughter.  I    There is a long incline at this point,  jrunt.ing clown into Eburne, and cars  t get up a high rate of speed here, so  that the car which lies smashed to  matchwood, must   bave  been hurled  with great -force.
