Odium, M.A, B.Sc,)  Surely it is something of vast importance, the  act of lighting and heating the City of Nanaimo  for two nights and a day with gas produced from  the Bulkley Valley Coal, taken from the mines of  the Grand Trunk B. C. Coal Company. For thirty-  six hours the entire plant of the Nanaimo Gas  Works was given over to the manufacture of coke  and gas from the coal brought down to Nanaimo  at the cost of between $80 and $90 per ton.  The Grand Trunk B. C. Coal Company had already made many tests and analyses of their coal.  The government analyst and the best mineralogists of the province made tests of a very exact  nature, and the result were most satisfactory.  The manager of the company hired men who  packed out the five tons on horseback, so as to  get it loaded on the Grand Trunk Pacific car near  Hazelton.   Then it was taken to Prince Rupert,  shipped on steamer to Vancouver, and re-shipped  to Nanaimo, where the whole amount was burned  in the coke ovens of the gas works.   Th6 president of the company, the manager and some of  the directors went to Nanaimo and watched the  process from the beginning of the testing.   Oven  after oven was filled with, the coal until six were  in operation.   It was intensely interesting to see  the coal go in, the flames lighting up and the  smoke and gas developing under the great heat;  but the interest grew when the little jet in the  corner was turned on and the illuminating gas  was put aglow.   Here was the first time in all the  eternities that   Bulkley   Valley   coal   was put  through gas-making aud coke-producing ovens in  a practical manner.    Mountains and hills have  been made and unmade, and old Father Time has  been busy down through the ages; but never until  now did the products of nature come from the  North to the South with the blessing of illuminating gas and smelting coal.   However, enterprise  nnd money, materialised in labour, did the deed,  nnd the City of Nanaimo was heated, and lighted  by the gas prouced from the G.T.R. B. C. Coal  Co. coal.  During the process of manufacturing the gas  and coal the heat needed to run the plant was  produced by the coke newly made.  The gas, coke, tar and ammonia water are all of  good quality, but the important fact is this: The  coke is not surpassed in quality on the coast of  British Columbia. It is hard, compact, and runs  high in quantity, reaching up to about 1500 lbs.  to the ton. Previously the coal had been tested  for steaming, and producing heat as well as for  blacksmithing, and proved to be a most valuable  material.  The officers of the company watched with deep  interest as the   gas   *vas   metered, lighted, and  (Continued Page 5)  ���������' **��������� ���������!"!��������� '!��������� II' -I- * -M- 4- 'V >V ���������!��������� ���������!��������� ���������!->*!**������������������ 1 ���������!������ ������������������.������������������_��������� ��������������� ������������������ <M"frM"."M"M"fr*t*  t  PONY CONTEST  All merchants interested in the  Pony Contest of the "Merchants' Publicity Campaign," managed by E.

We are advised that the city and district is practically under the control  of the mob, who are committing all manner of violence.  The strike of the coal miners on the Island has up to the present been a most  orderly affair. Very few prosecutions have occurred for infringement of the law,  and, whatever opinion may have been held as to the merits of the case, it was clear  to all that the strikers were orderly. Recently, however, all this has changed and  now daily reports are to hand of most unwarranted outrages. We are unable at  the time of writing to judge fairly as to the cause of this outburst, but unfortunately for the men and their cause they will have to bear the blame. There can be  no adequate excuse given for the violent destruction of property, which invariably  results in the alienation of public sympathy.  This strike will go down in economic history as another illustration of the utter failure of the "-strike-" as a satisfactory means of settling an industrial dispute.  By this statement we do not desire to infer that the men are entirely to blame; that  will never be made perfectly clear���������the question will be surrounded with so much  obscure and extraneous matter as to make it impossible to reach an impartial decision; but this is certain that the acts of violence will be attributed to the men and  be made an argument against their cause. It is to be regretted that such an outburst has occurred; it will postpone indefinitely the decision of the points at issue.  The recognition of their union can now hardly be expected by the men, and the  struggle of the past months will go foi? naught, insofar as bringing about a better  understanding between employer and enlployee is concerned.  What Canada needs is legislation which will adequately deal with such problems as arise from time to time between capital and labor, and, without the means  of a strike, settle the difference. Both parties, employer and employee, must be  made amenable to law and subject to proper control in the public interest. Legislation of this type will be difficult to devise but will undoubtedly be forthcoming;  we cannot go on forever under the silpshod system at present in vogue.  The Hon. Robt Rogers  Next week the Hon. Robt. Rogers, Minister of Public Works in the Dominion  Government, wiU visit Vancouver for the first time.  As a prominent and skillful political man Mr. Rogers has been the object of  most bitter and unjustifiable attack by the Liberal press. It is very noticeable however that through it all Mr. Rogers has come unscathed. Not one dishonorable  act have his opponents been able to fasten to him, although they have spent fortunes in their mad effort to besmirch his reputation. .  Most men who have attained a pi'ominent place in public life are the subject  for vindictive attack by their opponents. '"Bob," as he is fondly called by his  friends, is a practical man. He is an untiring worker, true to his friends and a keen  tactful opponent. During, last session, "Bob" seemed never to rest. He had on his  hands the Public Works dejpartment, recognized as the heaviest department in the  Government, and yet he was always at his post in the House. He would remain in  the chamber, until two, three or four o'clock in the morning and be down at his  department at eight thirty or nine o'clock each morning. How he stood the ter-  x*ific strain was a puzzle to all. Then he does things on a big scale���������he grasps, the  needs of the country in a broad-minded way.  He has been a good friend to Vancouver and to all B. C, and his visit'to our  city should be made the occasion of a demonstration  of  our  appreciation  of  his  work.  After all the true test of a man's value is his ability to hold his friends. "Bob"  has hosts of these who stand by him through thick and thin, tie has many old  friends in our city who are anxious to greet him, he will leave here with many more  than when he came���������such is our "Bob," making friends wherever he goes���������too busy  to botlfer with the hord of yelping, jealous enemies always seeking to injure him.  The Financial Outlook  For some months the country has been in the grip of a financial stringency  more acute than has been experienced for many years.  What are the effects of this stringency?   How long will it last?  In some respects it has been a healthy experience. It has put a stop to much  wild speculation and driven out of business many reckless gamblers, such as inevitably follow in the wakes of unusual national prosperity.  For some time past efforts have been made to build up Western towns by selling lots to non-residents thousands of miles away. This could not last and it must  be clear to any thinking person that the very worst thing for a town is to sell property to absentees. No town can grow in that way; yet there are many townsites  sold almost exclusively to absentees. This absurdity was not. realized by the few  residents of the locality nor by the greedy purchaser living at a distance, but  through the agency of this money stringency the bald facts  have become  known.  That is one good result.  This year there will be a good crop. Farmers throughout the country, warned  by the scarcity of money, are economising���������they are not buying much new machinery, but are bending every effort to reduce their liabilities. Merchants are also reducing their bank overdrafts and carrying smaller stocks. Wholesalers and manufacturers are collecting old accounts and reducing their credit sales, all of which  must result in a much stronger and healthier condition of business throughout the  country. Everywhere is strong evidence to be observed that the tendency of business men and farmers is to confine themselves more to their respective businesses  and quit the reckless speculation of recent years. When will the stringency end?  There is every evidence that it will be no worse and that in fact the tide has already taken a turn for the better. Crops are good; never were better. This alone  means millions of dollars to our country.   The new Bank Act makes farm produce  (Continued or Pag* 5)  AUSTRIA'S GROWING NAVY  (Prof. E. Odium, M.A., B.Sc.)  What does Austria want with a navy anyway f ,  What has she to do with such a water-club f  Where are the motives for this weapon! Perhaps some think that Austria is just building a  powerful fleet' for show, and to use up her surplus cash.  To any ordinary reader and watcher of current,  events it is very plain.   Austria for purposes of  international strife on a gigantic scale is * park of  Germany.   Her army and navy are two extra ,  weapons ready to call, to answer the demand  made by the military giant of the North.  Hence when we think of comparing the fleets of  England and Germany, in relation to a fierce  struggle, we must make sure to count correctly.  Suppose that a war occurred between England  and Germany, a single handed war, how would  matters stand?  Germany would at once have the warships of  Austria at her disposal. This is the real reason of  existence of the Austrian fleet. To get over the  difficulty of using this additional navy there  would be such an'arrangement made secretly between the two continental powers as to avoid  bringing Russia, Italy or France into tiie war.  Of course, Austria could not openly offer her  fleet to Germany, as this would make apparent the  fact that the two countries were pitted against  Britain. This would at once submerge the whole  of Europe, as France and Russia and Italy would  have to act. Here is somewhat the process which  would be followed in the event:of >a decision on  the part of Germany to make war upon Great  Britain. Without-notice of war, and at a time of ,  apparent peace, Germany would strike with all  her might.  She would take immediate possession of all the  war-craft of Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Belgium  and Holland, which could be accomplished inside  of forty-eight hours, and without the shot of a  single gun, or the loss of life.  This would at once tie up the entire North Sea  and the entrance to the mighty inland waters east  of Heligoland and the north of Denmark.  In the meantime Austria would be OUtWftnMy  forced to hand over her fleet to Germany. This  .could be accomplished by a show of German fofce  on the northern boundaries of Austria. The private understanding would easily provide for such  an outward play of forces. However, the point  I wish to make clear is this important fact���������that  the Austrian fleet is a part of the immense German navy, and would be ready at a moment's  notice to co-operate against Great Britain in a  sudden attack.  This is another reason why Canada should hasten assistance to the Motherland; another reason for condemning the Senatorial act of treachery performed under the instructions of Sir Wilfrid Laurier. How noble and mnnly the act of  New Zealand compared with the ignoble act of a  nest of foreign-led traitors in Canada! How  splendidly the little group of Fiji Islands show  up as contrasted with our paltry Canadian Sen*  ate! Look nt the Straits Settlements, mostly natives and Chinese. They have the spirit of men  and patriots, but our Canadian Senators sit as a  lot of misguided old men, a lot of useless played-  out old foggies, and vote at the command of their  British-hating masters who would disrupt the  Empire at the first opportunity.  In Fiji the population is made up chiefly of Indians and Fiji Islanders, there being only about  3000 British white people. And yet these Fijians  and Indians have a higher, a nobler, and a more  sane vision than l>elong to the men, and old senatorial women who are opposing the Canadian  plan of aiding the Motherland and the whole Empire, including our own Dominion.  4"i������l������������ I 'I HHIilll M..l"M"l"M"M>-t-  ���������:���������-:-.-:������������������.���������:���������:-:������������������:���������-  NOTICE  The management of the Terminal City  Press wish the people of Vancouver,  Victoria or elsewhere to know that they  are in no way responsible for any promises  or representations made by "The Merchants' Publicity Co." in their pony  advertising campaign.

Ladies'Aid  On Launch Ride  B. C.   Government   Decides   That   It  Cannot Be Handed Over to Vancouver for Use for Park.  I  Victoria, Aug.  12.���������The Vancouver]  courthouse site will not be handed j  over to the Terminal City authorities  for park or open space purposes upon  the terms and conditions proposed  by the last delegation that waited  upon the Provincial Government relative to the question; nor, indeed, will  lt be handed over at all, the government coming to the conclusion that it  was impossible to meet the request of  the Vancouver people In- this matter.  Formal Reply Today.  Announcement to this effect was  made yesterday by Sir Richard McBride, and the formal communication  from the government to the delegation will be forwarded today.  This matter, which has been of considerable distinction and conspicuity  for a long time, owing to the persistent  attempts of the Vancouver- people to  have the government reserve the property for park purpoaes, will probably  be closed now, as it is generally believed that the proposal of the last  Relegation that interviewed the government on the subject went as far  as possibly can be done by the city in-  this respect.  In asking the government to set  aside the property, the delegation,  which was headed by Mayor Baxter  and a number of the leading representatives of other civic organizations,  u ndertook to pay the sum of $200,000,  provided that amount was spent upon  the development of the roads leading1  into the terminal city.  Could Not Grant Request.  Whether the sum named, or the  rider atached to it, had anything to do  with the government's decision is not  known, the statement being made in  the simple form that the government  could not see its way to grant the request.  Mrs. George Williamson was the  hostess of a party of friends on Wednesday, when the Ladies Aid of Mount  Pleasant Methodist Church spent the  day at her pretty summer home, Howe  Sound. Leaving at 10 o'clock in the  morning on the splendid new launch  "Kathleen III.," which won the silver  cup in the international races from  Olympia to Victoria, the party arrived  after an enjoyable two hour trip, and  were met at the wharf by the hostess  and Captain and MrB. Sacret. Luncheon was Berved shortly after their arrival, the ladies sitting down to the  long table made ready on the verandah, where covers for forty were laid.  The table was very prettily decorated  with ferns, while the verandah was  bauked with fresh greenery. The afternoon was spent in boating and fishing, and in needle work upon the cool  balconies. The evening meal was also  eaten in the open; and after a hearty  expression of thanks from the ladies  for the kind hospitality of Mr. and  Mrs. Williamson, to which Mr. William replied, the party embarked for  home. Those who participated in this  outing were: Mrs. Casselman, Mrs.  H. H. Stevens, Madame Yulisse, Mrs.  J.

The  contracting parties were Mr. Harry  A. Olds, son of Mr. Henry A. Olds,  Vancouver, a_.d Miss Emily Alice  Keenlyside, daughter of the late Mr.  William Keenlyside, Northumberland,  England. The brother of the bride,  Mr. Scott KeenlyBide, attended the  groom, and Miss Gertrude Hudson  acted as maid pf honor. The bride  was charmingly attired in a, gown of  Oriental satin and veil and a wreath  of orange blossom and carried a large  bouquet of flowers. ��������� The ceremony  was performed by the pastor of the  church, Rev. John Pye, and Mrs. Newman presided at the organ. After the  service at the church a reception was  given at the home of the brides sister, Mrs. H. J. Phalp, Fifty-eighth  avenue east, when a number of friends  and well-wishers were present and a  pleasant hour was spent. Congratulations were extended and the guests  viewed the many beautiful gifts which  the young couple had received. At  5:30 o'clock the bride and groom left  to take the evening boat for Nanaimo.  The honeymoon will be spent on Vancouver Island and on their return Mr.  and Mrs. Olds will take up residence  on Windsor strefet near Ferris road.  Mrs. Olds has been clnnected with  the Ferris Road Methodist Church for  over two years, and has proved to be  a most diligent and faithful worker in  the Sunday School and league. Mr.  Olds, too, has shown much interest in  the work which the church is trying  to do.  London Capital  Is Still Coming  SELLS $1,500,000 OF BURNABY  MUNICIPAL BONDS  Reeve McGregor of Burnaby, who  returned from a two months' vacation in the Old Country, has brought  back the news that he had arranged  the sale of $1,500,000 worth of bonds  for the municipality in London.  ,7 At a price that works .out at 91 1-2  per cent., he obtained that sum net  upon 6 per cent, treasury notes, repayable in ten years. He said this  morning that it was impossible, to obtain the sale of any municipality's  bonds at 4 1-2, 5, or even 5 1-2 per  cent in England, although some bonds  for the larger cities were being taken  up at that price; With the money  obtained Burnaby municipality would  go ahead with the work on the River  road, Douglas road and the Barnet  road, after balancing its account at  the bank, Bald, the reeve today.  During his trip he visited various  districts of England and Scotland, including his old home in Perth. He  said today that trade conditions never  looked better, although there was a  financial stringency caused by the  Balkan war and the commercial expansion of the world generally.

It takes years to srow trees���������not  hours or days.  To keep us in timber, pulp, an equable water supply, fish and game, we  must have trees.  Stop the fires.  Stop the waste in logging, milling  and utilization.  Stop the insect and fungus depredations. .  Cut timber only when it is "ripe"���������  when it will produce as much value as  possible in usefulness to men.  Plant up the waste places.  Plant the needed shelter belts.  These take time, they take men, they  take money, but they are worth it.  France has spent $35,000,000 in planting trees on watersheds.  Germany spends up to $13 per acre  per annum on some forests, and gets  gross returns up to $24 per acre, thus  yielding net profits up to $11 per acre  every year.  As a whole, German forests produce  about $2.00 net per acre annually.  Canada spends much less than one  cent per acre par annum on the forest  lands under management  If we set the fire loss against the  timber product, Canada's forest balance sheet shows an enormous deficit.  How can Canadians stop the losses,  arrest the waste?  There is but one answer.  Public opinion, public interest, public conscience are the only forces that  will ever make for progress.

The fish started to come ashore on  yesterday evening's tide, and more  were washed up today. The secret is  that fishermen are throwing overboard the fish which the canneries  will not accept, and these fish are  washed ashore at English Bay. The  beach for the last week has been very  dirty, as the westerly winds and seas  sent in a lot of seaweed and refuse.  Now come the deceased salmon and  people who live along the beach are  ringing up the authorities to know  what is to be done. The beach badly  wants a thorough cleaning up for the  litter along the foreshore is distinctly  unpleasant for, bathers.

The Premier's communication reiterated the stand' taken when the  delegation went to Victoria on July  11, that as trustee for the people of  the whole province, the; executive  must carefully consider Its position  The letter read:  "In answer, I would say that the  executive bas fully 'considered the  matter since the same was placed before it on tbe llth July aforesaid,  and. the members find themselves unable to depart from the principle  enunciated at that time, namely, that  in dealing with provincial property,  although situated within the confines  of your city, regard must be made to  the obligation of the executive as trustees for the whole of the people of the  province.  "Under these circumstances, the  executive regrets that it cannot comply with your requirements."  Mayor Baxter when asked said  that he was naturally sorry that the  executive could not see its way clear  to grant the request, which he thought  was a reasonable1 one. Asked what  further .action would be taken, the  mayor said that nothing more could  be done.  "It would not be advisable," he said,  "for the citizens to pay $1,000,000 for  that little piece ot property. Por that  amount they could get a large parcel  of land immensely more valuable for  park purposes close to the city today."  Coroner's Jury Considers the Britannia  Co. Did Not Safeguard Chute  The coroner's jury empanelled at  Center & Hanna's this week came  to the conclusion "that Charles McRae came to his death on the morning bf August 8 at the works of the  Britannia Mining and Smelting Company Ltd., Britannia Beach, by accidentally falling down a chute while in  the employ9 of the before mentioned  company, and we are of the opinoion  tbat the company has not used due  precaution in sefaguarding the said  chute."  The medical evidence was that the  dead man was so badly smashed by  his fall that death, was inevitable.  Mr. Egbert Peterson, the chief  witness said they used candles  to light . their way through the  tunnel, and he found McRae's candle  beside his body at the bottom of the  chute.  The jury in this case, consisting of  Thomas Noel Bland, George Barnes,  Simeon Coolen, Alexander Liefman,  James Altken and Alexander McDonald, established a precedent as far as  Vancouver coroner's juries go, by demanding to be taken to a separate  room from which even the constable  was to be excluded while they deliberated on their verdict.

The Financial Outlook  (Continued from Page 1)  in hand legal security for a bank and large English^ banks bave offered to make  advances to help move our crops. This is a most hopeful sign. Then the European  situation is improving and with this war cloud removed a lot. of money should be  released again for commercial and industrial purposes.  The splendid crop of this year will assure the success of thousands of immigrants who have settled in Canada in recent years and enable us to absorb the multitudes now coming to our shores.  It must also be remembered that the trade, of the country is steadily increasing  and that this year bids fair to be a record year in Canadian trade. Bank clearings, customs and postal earnings are greater than ever hefore���������all of which goes  to show that the commercial interests of the country are normal. Will the recovery  be rapid, and shall we have cheap money ?  We think not. The recovery of normal monetary conditions may be fairly  rapid���������but cheap money���������rNO. We need expect no cheap money as long as we are  prosperous and developing. The demand is still very great for thoroughly sound  enterprises and while that is so we need not expect low rates of interest. However,  as our production increases and our crops become greater, it is reasonable to expect  more local funds for investments of a local nature.  Canada is in a better financial position today than she was prior to the present period of scarce money and, in fact, than she has ever been before. The future is  bright with promise and we need have no fear so long as we keep within the bounds  of legitimate enterprise. ,  Remarkable Economics  (Continued from Page 1)  tested; and as the tar ran out in a steady stream,  accompanied by ammoniacal water. But the interest deepened as the time approached for opening the first oven( to examine the coke. This was  the aim of the costly experiment; and up or down  went the hopes of the directors as the signs were  good or bad. However, the only bad sign was  the presence of dust, some shale, and foreign matter, for there was no picking and selecting some  special coal for the test. It was taken up in  mass from the mouth of the pit, and what it produced at Nanaimo is the worst that it would produce at any time. But with the usual picking  and cleaning which precede the manufacture of  coke, the futifre results will of the firstquality,  excepting nothing in the province.  The next step is to put in a large plant as soon  as possible so as to take the coal out in large  quantities. While it is splendid coking coal, the  best the expert at Nanaimo has seen in British  Columbia, it is a valuable coal for steam-making,  and doubtless will be readily sold at the mouth  of the pit. In fact the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Co. will need it, and can procure it at a cost  much below the coal brought to Prince Rupert  from Vancouver Island. The pit is half a mile  from the station. New Hazelton will take a large  quantity as soon as the coal can be brought out,  and the company has an offer for sale for cash at  the mouth of the pit.  Nearly four hundred feet of tunnels have been  driven, and from the start to the finish the work  was done in the ledges of good coal. It must be.  remembered that all the coal so far taken out,  was in place, close to the surface of the ground,  as the Cariboo gold miners would say, "from the  grass roots.-'' ,  From a commercial and an economic viewpoint  this marks a new era in coal and coke production.  The North country is a land of wealth,, of coal,  iron, gold, silver, other metals, land, timber,  water, good healthful climate, and all that a  strong manly people could desire. The omens are  good in aU directions, and soon a large prosperous enterprising population will be actively engaged in the British Columbia North, and to this  end the Grand Trunk B. C. Coal Co. contributes  its help.  X  A woman's work is never done unless 'tis done  the Hot Point way.

"By God! you have a right pretty  thrust from the shoulder," he exclaimed. "Been out before, I take it.  But 111 show you something yon never  learned. Odds, 1*11 call your boy's  Play!"  "Better hold your breath, for you'll  need it now," I replied shortly. "The  boy's play is over with."  Step by step I began sternly to force  the fighting, driving my point against  him so relentlessly as to hush his  speech. Twice we circled, striking,  countering, fighting, our blades glittering ominously in the starlight, our  breathing labored with the fierceness  of the fighting. Both our swords tasted  blood, he slicing my forearm, I piercing his shoulder, yet neither wound  sufficed to bring any cessation of effort We were mad now with the fever  of It, and struggling to kill, panting  fiercely, our faces flushed, the perspiration dripping from our bodies, our  swords darting    swiftly    back    and  the barge, his feet dangling within a  few Inches of my head.  "Might as well take lt easy. Bill," he  said lastly. "They're like to be an  hour layin' hands on the lad, an' all  we got to do ls see he don't fox back  tbls way.   Got any tobacco, mate?"  The other must have produced the  necessary weed, for there was a scraping of flint and steel, a gleam of flre  glinting on the water, and then the  pungent odor wafted to me in puff of  smoke. With one hand, I unbuckled  my sword belt, letting it, sword and  all, sink silently into the river. I  must cross to the opposite bank somehow, and would have to dispense with  the weapon. Inch by inch, my fingers  gripping the narrow slat tb which I  clung, I worked slowly toward tbe  stern of the barge, making not so  much as a ripple in the water, and  keeping well hidden below the bulge  of tho side. The voices above droned  along in conversation, of which I  caught a few words.  "Who was he? Tou mean the lad  they're after down yonder?

I tried the  doors, bat they appeared firmly fastened. Far in tbe east there was a  faint lightening of the sky promising  the approach of dawn, and thus  aroused to a knowledge that I must  Immediately attain shelter, I clambered through one of "the broken windows, and dropped to the earthen  floor within I could see nothing, not  even a hand held before my eyes, yet  carefully felt my way forward through  a tangle of rubbish, wheels, scraps of  iron, some casks, a number of plough  handles, and a riffraff of stuff-1 could  not make out. The place had evidently been used as a repair shop, but  must have been closed for months, as  I could feel the grit of Oust everywhere,- and cobwebs brushed against  my face as I moved about Finally I  felt tbe outlines of a large box half  filled with paper, and, for want of  something better, crept in and snuggled down, intending to rest there until daylight should reveal my surroundings.  I was warm enough now, my clothing practically dry, but thoroughly  tired from the long tramp over   the  and, had we been permitted to go on  to the end, would have worn me down  by sheer strength. Suddenly, above  the clash of steel, came the sound of  voices; our blades we're struck up, and  the dark forms of men pressed in be*  tweertui.  "Stop ft, you hotheads!" some one  commanded gruffly. "Hold your man,  Colston, until I get at tbe reason for  tbla fighting. Who are you? Oh,  Grant! What's the trouble now? Tbe  old thing, eh?"  I had no desire to watt bis answer,  eonfident that Grant waa sufficiently  f Hsd Gained a Hundred Feet iefert  Those Behind Me Had Grasped the  ,.    Meaning of My Unexpected Flight  angry to blurt out everything be knew.  Tbey were all facing hit way, actuated by the recognition. Breathless  still, yet quick to seise tbe one and  only chance left, I grabbed up my  Jacket from the grass, and sprang Into  tbe darkness. I had gained a hundred  feet before those behind grasped the  meaning of my unexpected flight, and  then the tumult of voices only sent  me flying faster, realising the pursuit  The only open passage led directly  toward tbe river, and I raced through  the black night down the slope as  though all the fiends of hell were aft*  or me. I heard shouts, oaths, but  there was no firing, and was far  enough ahead to be Invisible by the  time I attained the bank. An open  barge lay there, a mere black smudge,  and I stumbled blindly   across   thl*  idropplng silently over Its side into the  water. It was not thought, but breathless inability to attempt more, which  kept me there, clinging to a slat on  'the side of the barge, so completely  submerged in the river, as to be invisible from above. Swearing fiercely, my pursuers stormed over tbe  barge, swinging their swords along  the edges to be sure I was not there.  ;One blade pricked me slightly, but I  held on, sinking yet deeper Into the  ; stream. I could see the dim outline  of heads peering over, but was not discovered. The same gruff voice which  had Interrupted the duel broke through  the noise:  "I tell you he turned to the left; I  saw him plainly enough. What did  you s&y the fellow's name was.  Grant?"  "How do I know? He called himself  Fortesque."  "Sure; the Bame one Carter was  sent out hunting    after.    WeU,    he  don't know much myself, now I come  to think of it He looked like a Britisher, what I saw of him, an' he was  flghtln' with a Captain of Rangers-  Grant was the name; maybe you know  the man?���������behind one of the stands."  "They'll never get him," returned  the other solemnly.  "Because it's my notion he swum  for it I was closest down the bank,  an' somethin' bit tbe water."  *But them's the -Jerseys over yonder; if be waB a spy he'd be headln'  tbo other way."  "It's Uttle he'd think of the way  with the gang of us yelpin' at his  heels. Besides, there's plenty of his  kind over tn those Jerseys who'd take  good care of the likes of htm." *  "But there's a guard stationed  across yonder."  "Fish, a corporal's squad, Just about  opposite at the ferry landln', an' a  company of Yagers down at Gloucester. There's plenty room between for  a bold lad to find free passage."  The two fell silent, staring out over  tbe water. Tbey had set me thinking,  however, and this knowledge of where  the British pickets were stationed was  exactly tbe Information I most required. I had no desire to cross tbe  Delaware, yet apparently In that direction lay tbe only remaining avenue  of escape.  At the lower end of the float I managed to silently remove my boots, and  then waited, Ustenlng to tbe movements of the men above. I must have  clung there ten minutes, expecting  every moment the party scouring the  shore would return, yet not daring to  make the venture with those fellows  sitting there, and silently -gsstng out  across the water. At last I heard them  get to their feet and tramp about on  the flat deck of the barge, the low  murmur of their voices reaching me,  although words were indistinguishable.  1 could hope for no better time. Fill*'  Ing my lungs with air, I sank below  the surface of the river, and then,  rising, struek boldly out Into the foil  sweep of the current  "How Came Ye Here?"  CHAPTER VII.  The Blacksmith.  I had come up gasping for breath,  |weU out ln the stream, either shore a  mere darker shadow showing above  Ithe water. How far I had been swept  'below the barge could not be guessed,  iss I could distinguish no outlines  jelearly, excepting the bare spars of a  vessel, tied up to the west shore. As  this ship had not been ln sight previously I concluded tbe drift had been  greater than anticipated, and I struck  out quickly toward the opposite bank,  fearful lest I be borne down as far as  Gloucester before I could flnaUy make  land. It was a *nard swim across the  swift current, and I was nearly exhausted when I flnaUy crept up the  low bank, and lay dripping and panting in the shelter of some low bushes.  Except for the bark of a distant dog  there was no Eound more disturbing  than the rustle of leaves, and the lapping of water. As my breath came  'back I sat up, wrung out my clothes  as best I could, and, with difficulty,  drew on the boots I had borne across,  slung to my shoulder.  I possessed but a dim conception of  where I was, yet knew I must make a  wide detour to the east so as to escape  British foraging parties.  I must have plodded doggedly along  through the darkness for fully five  miles, without perceiving the first sign  dark road, and exhausted by the excitement through which I had passed.  Even my mind seemed dulled, and it  appeared useless to think or plan. I  had not .intended to sleep, yet drowsiness came, and I lost consciousness.  I know not v. hat aroused me, but It  was already rV.ylight. a gleam of sun  through the windows turning the festooned cobwebs into golden tapestry.  One side of the box la which I lay  bad been broken out, and I could see  the full length of the Bhop, which appeared littered from end to end with  all manner of implements of husbandry, and woodworking and blacksmith's tools. All this I perceived  witb my first glance, hut it was the  distant sound of a voice which as Instantly held my attention. At first I  could not locate the speaker, nor comprehend the peculiar singsong of the  utterance. But as I lifted my bead,  listening intently, I knew tbe man to  be beyond the wooden partition at my  right, and tbat be was praying fervently. Somehow heartened by this  discovery I crept out from the bed of  papers, and stole silently forward to  the narrow door which apparently led  into this second apartment The voice  'never ceased in its monotonous appeal, and I ventured to lift the latch,  and take cautious glance through tbe  slight opening.  It was a -blacksmith shop of fair  _i*e, fully equipped with all the tools  of tbe trade. The man was facing me,  but with eyes closed, and uplifted, as  his lips poured forth the fervent words  of prayer. I waa not a reUgious man  in those days, yet the faith of my  mother was not forgotten, and there  was something of sincerity about tbat  soUtary kneeling figure I could not but  respect The words uttered, the deep  resonant voice, and above all, the expression of that upturned face, held  me silent motionless. He was a man  of short sturdy limb, but great bulk,  massive chest, and immense shoulders  evidencing remarkable strength. What  ;was this man, tbis praying black*  .smith? A patriot surely, from his  j words of petition; one wbo had suffered much, but was willing to suffer  more. The strength chiselled ln that  upturned face, those deeply marked  -features, revealed no common mental  equipment Here was a real man,  with convictions, one who would die  for an ideal; without doubt a radical,  ready to go to any extreme where con*  science blazed the way.  As he finally paused, his head bowed  low, I stepped forward into the light,  confident of welcome, utterly forgetful  of the uniform I wore. At the first  faint sound of my approach on the  floor he was upon his feet fronting  me, the shortness of his limbs yielding him a certain grotesque appearance, his deep-set eyes regarding me  suspiciously. Before I could realize  the man's Intent he sprang between  me and the outer door, his hand gripping an Iron bar.  "A son of Baal!" came the roar from  his lips. "Kow came you here in that  uniform?   Are you alone?"  "Alone, yes," and I hurled the scarlet jacket into the dirt with a gesture  of disgust    "I had even forgotten I  Washington himself, but my Identity  was discovered, and there wss no way  to escape except across the Delaware.  I reached here during the night and  crept into your shop-to hide. Thej  sound of your voice awoke me from  sleep, and I knew from your words  that lt was safe for me to come forth."  "You may know it, young man, but  I don't," he replied gruffly. "We're a  bit suspicious of strangers here in the  Jerseys these days. The minions of  Satan encompass us about What  bave ye to show to prove your story?"  I shook my head, extending my  hands.  "Only my word of honor. I had a  pass from Hamilton, but destroyed  that before entering the British Unes.  If I tell the whole story, perhaps you  will understand its truth."  [ The expression of his face did. not  .change, yet I thought the deep-set  fares were not altogether unkind.  ��������� "You are hungry, no doubt?"  :   "Being human, yes."  ��������� "Then well eat and talk at the same  time. You're only one man, an' I'm  not afraid of you, an' lf ye are a Britisher I wouldn't starve you to death.  There's .little enough, the good Lord  knows, but you're welcome to the half  pf lt Make yourself comfortable  there on the bench."  I He threw open a cupboard in one  [corner, and brought forth a variety of  [food, placing tbis upon a wide shelf  pear at hand. Occasionally our eyes  {met, and I knew he was slowly making up his mind regarding me. This  (silent scrutiny could not have been altogether unsatisfactory, for, wben be  Anally drew up an empty box and sat  ���������down, he was prepared to talk.  ! "Help yourself," he began gravely.  "It ls rough camp fare, but doubtless  'you are used to that Do you know  me?"  I scanned his face again Intently,  surprised by tbe question, yet recognized no familiar features.'  "No," I, replied, with some hesitation.  "Have we ever met hefore?"  ~"Not to my remembrance," and the  man's language and accent evidenced  education above his apparent station.  "But I have won some repute in this  part of the Jerseys, an' thought my  name might be known to you. You  would recognize the signature of  George Washington?"  "I have seen it often." .<  He drew a flat leather case from a  pocket inside his shirt, extracting  therefrom a folded paper, which he  opened, and extended to me across the  table. With a glance I mastered the  few lines written therepn, recognizing  its genuineness.  "Hamilton penned that" I said ln  quick surprise, "and it ls signed by  Washington's own hand."  The deep-set eyes twinkled.  "Right," he said shortly, "that bit  ot paper may save me from hangln'  some day. There are those who would  like well to see me swing lf tbey only  laid bands on me at tbe right time  and place. You know wbat tbe paper  Is?"  "A commission as Captain," and I  bent over it again, "Issued to Dantal  Farrell, giving him Independent command of scouts���������by heavens! art you  'Bull'FarreU?"  He was eating quietly, bnt found  time to answer.  "There are those who caU me by  tbat nickname; others give me even a  worse handle. T is my nature to  make enemies faster than friends. Yon  know me then?"  'T was with Maxwell at German-  town," the remembrance of tbe scene  coming vividly to mind, "when you  came up witb your ragged fellows. You  have certainly taught tbem bow to  Hg&t"  "There was no teaching necessary:  all tbe trouble I ever have ts In holding them back," bis face darkening.  "Every man wbo rides with me knows  what war means bere In the Jerseys;  they have seen their homes In flames,  their women and children driven out  by Hessian hirelings. We fight for  Ufe as well as liberty, and when we  strike we strike hard* But enough of  tbat We have sufficient confidence ln  each other by how to talk freely. What  did you discover ln Philadelphia? No  more than I could teU yoo myself. 111  warrant"  I told the story, while he listened  sUently, his eyes alone expressing Interest As I ended, he slowly Ut his  pipe, and sat there smoking, apparently thinking over what I had said.  "Have I learned anything of importance?" I asked finally.  "For Washington, yes; but .very lit*  tie unknown to me. So you met Mistress Claire, eh? The little minx!

"There was no cause for you to do  so," and the grim mouth smiled. "No  one else in Philadelphia would have  turned the trick so neatly; besides the  fact that your opponent was Grant  would have revealed the Identity of  the girl."  "You know them both then?"

"Certainly; they have been engaged  from childhood, though Ood pity the  poor girl if they ever marry.

"No, 't was not that, I am sure; I  oould read truth In her eyes."  I "In Claire's eyes!" he laughed out-  jrlght "Oh, I know the innocent blue  (of them, and warn you not to trust  -such blindly.

We fell silent, my memory with the  girl, endeavoring to recall her exact  words, the expression of her face. It  was not in my heart to believe she had  deceived me.  I had almost forgotten where X was,  fas well as the presence of my companion, when he suddenly arose to his  feet, and, pushing aside the wooden  window shutter, looked out A glance  of his keen eyes was sufficient.  "Get back into your box. Major," he  exclaimed quickly. "Pull tbe papers  over you."  I was upon my feet, conscious of the  distant sound of horses' hoofs.  "What is it?   The enemy?"  "Rangers; fifty of them, I judge, an'  they'll never pass.here without rummaging around. Quick now, under cover."  "But what about yourself V  "Don't worry about me; those fellows haven't any evidence against me  ���������yet.   They're after you."  I was through the intervening door  with a bound and an instant later bad  burrowed under the crumpled papers.  The shifting of the sun had left this  corner of the repair shop in shadow,  but I was scarcely outstretched in my  hastily improvised hiding place, when  I heard the blacksmith calmly open  his outer door, where he stood smoking, clad in leathern apron, awaiting  the approaching horsemen. They  swept about the corner ot the smithy  almost at the same moment, pulling  up their tired horses at sight of him.  From amid tbe thud of hoofs, and the  rattle of accoutrements, a voice spoke  sharply:  "So you're here, Farrell, yoa old  rebel hypocrite. Well, what are you  biding now?"  "I was not aware tbat I had anything to hide, Captain Grant," was the  dignified response. "This is my shop,  an' where I should be."  "Ob. hell! We all know yon well  enough, you old fox, and well catch  yoa red-handed yet, and hang you.  But we're not hunting after your kind  today. Did you see anything of a fellow ln sarlet jacket along here last  night, or this morning?"  I failed to catch Farrell's answer,  bat the voice of the officer was sufficiently loud to reach me.  "A rebel spy; the sneaking rascal  must have swam the Delaware. Well  look about your shop just the same  before we ride on. Mason, take a half-  dosen men with you, and rake tbe  place over."  I heard the sound of their boots on  the floor, and burrowed lower In my  box. Two or three entered the old  shop, and began to probe about among  the debris. One kicked the box in  which I lay, and thrust a bayonet  down through the loose papers, barely  missing my shoulder. With teeth  clinched I remained breathless, but  the fellow seemed satisfied, and moved  on, after searching the dark corner  beyond. At last T heard them all go  out, mumbling to each other, and ventured to alt up again, and draw a fresh  breath. They had left the door ajar,  and I had a glimpse through the crack.  Farrell was leaning carelessly ln the  outer doorway, smoking, his short legs  wide apart, his expression one of total  indifferenoe. A big fellow stepped  past him, and saluted some one just  sat of sight  #tfody ta Wk sir." he' reported.  "Afl right, Ma*^-,an_ Grant came  into view, on a mover sorrel. "Get  your men be* f*M> saddle; we'll  move ob."  "Thin* hs went this way?" asked  ;the blacksmith carelessly.  "How the hell do I know!" savage-  to. "He must have started this way,  jbnt likely he took the north road.  IWell get the chap before night, unless  >he runs into Delavan's fellows out  jyonder. See here, Farrell." holding in  his horse, "well be back here about  dark, and will want something to eat"  ' "You will be welcome to all yoa  Iflnd."  : "You impudent rebel, yoa see that  [you are here when we come.

"'  ; I watched them go past, the dust-  [covered green uniforms slipping by  4tbe crack of the door, as the men  urged their horses faster. Farrell  [never moved, the blue tobacco smoke  [curling above his head, and I stele  across the littered storeroom to a cob-  !webbed window, from which I could  watch the little column of riders'go  down the hill. They finally disappeared in the edge of a grove, and I  turned around to find the blacksmith  leaning against his anvil waiting for  me.  "Genial young fellow. Grant*' ho  said. "Always promising to hang me,  but never Quite ready to tackle the  job. Afraid I shall have to disappoint  ���������him again tonight."  :   "You will not wait for him?''  "Hardly.

M. Winslow, provincial horticulturist after a  tour of inspection over all the Important orchards in the valley. Mr. Winslow believes that there are large undeveloped possibilities for the marketing of the fruits and farm produce  of the Boundary district at Vancouver  and other Pacific coast points.-  ACTIVE BUILDING CONTINUES  AT 8WIFT CURRENT  Swift Current, Sask.���������Swift Current  is piling up a big total of building  permits, and insiders look to see tbe  $2,000,000 . martc reached before the  close of the year.

The new  building of the Royal Bank, when completed, will be one of the handsomest  structures in Swift Current. Meanwhile harvesting is about to commence, and provided the needed number of harvest hands can be promptly  secured, the expectation is for a record crop that should grade very high.

Robert Rogers, minister of public works, who will arrive here on  Monday next."  This was the reply given by Mr. H.  H. Stevens, M.P., on his return from  the East this morning when he was  asked for particulars regarding the  dock -plans, a brief report of which  was published in The Province last  Monday.  The dispatch from Ottowa stated  that the drydock would cost ln the  neighborhood of $2,500,000 would  have a lifting capacity of 15,000 tons,  and be capable of handling the largest ocean liners. The chief engineer  of the work department it was mentioned, was preparing a report ou the  project, for which an application had  teen made for a 3 1-2 per cent, subsidy. The Amalgamated Drydock ������_  Engineering Company is the title ot  the corporation which proposes to  construct and operate the dock.  "Tenders for the new Immigration  sheds will be called for at the end of  the- month. The bulldingB will be of  better construction than those first  planned.

Cameron of Ward Six,  submitted because he had disposed of  his qualifying property under a mistaken opinion of the law, waB accepted  by the City Council last night.  The same resolution that accepted  the resignation of Aid. Cameron declared the seat vacant and ordered a  new election. Notices were also given  cf a by-law to the same effect. City  Solicitor Hay saying that in order to  be safe it would be necessary to pass  a by-law as well as a resolution before  issuing the warrant to the returning  officer. He believed, however, that the  resolution was sufficient, but the statute was vague and he. wished to be  sure.  Twenty-five days after the city clerk,  otherwise the returning offlcer, receives the warrant from the mayor  the election must be held. A motion  to call a special meeting on Wednesday morning was lost, and the by-laws  will be submitted at the next regular  City Council meeting.

The natural resources of the country, will, of course, be th^basis of the  showing to be made.  A year ago Mr. William Hutcheson,  Dominion exhibition 'commissioner,  went to San Francisco, on the instructions of the Hen. Martin Burrell,  minister of agriculture, and selected a  site for the Canadian building. It is  the intention to start construction  work this fall.

Riots in Nanaimo  Mayor Wires to Premier McBride Asking Help of Provincial Officers  Nanalmo, Aug. 12.���������In all probability  the attorney-general's department will  today take over the enforcement of  law and order in Nanaimo. A request  for such action was made yesterday  afternoon T>y His Worship Mayor  Shaw following a riot by striking  embers of the'United Mine Workers  of America, in which Chief Neen of  the city police force was struck by  missiles and a number of workmen  returning home from the mines injured, in one instance seriously.  Made Special Objects  Ever since the strike was declared  in the local mines by the U. M. W, of  A. on May 1 the Western Fuel Company has had a force of twenty-four  men at work keeping the mine clear  of gas and water and mining coal  sufficient to keep up steam in the  mine boilers. Yesterday the force  was augmented by fifteen others, including a man named Patterson, his  three sons and a son-in-law, who were  made the special objects of the displeasure of the mob. When Patterson  and his sons came off work at 3  o'clock they were placed in an auto  and whisked off in' the direction of  their home on Nicol street under the  personal escort of Chief of Police  Neen. Striking miners numbering  several hundred immediately made an  attack upon the auto, hurled atones  and other missiles, at tbe occupants  of the car, all of whom were struck  and more or less injured.  Latest reports announce riots, dynamiting, destruction of property and  human life by the strikers. The attorney-general acting with decision is  dispatching the militia to the scene of  trouble. The disorderly mob will be  forced to submit to law and authority.  Order must be secured at any cost.  Fish!    Fish!   Fish!
