in general Is resultliig In the offering of

countries to each other, and, impelled 
by the thought that this is an auspici-

there should rest a broader confidence, a

With permits issued of an aggregate 
value of $l,«O7.570 during the month to 
date, and with yet another day to run, 
February has been all previous building 
records shattered and a new record es- 
tablished. This enormous total, of 
course, has been reached because of the 
issuance of the permit for the erection 
of the additions to the legislative build- 
ings which will cost Jl, 000,000, but even , 
without this huge amount the total is a 
remarkable one for the city, .showing 
aKsregate value for the month of $658,- 
7 20 to date, a figure which exceeds the 
largest previous month in the history of 
tht city — November of last yeaf", when 
permits were ..issued for structuVes ag- 
gregating, jbio.iio. 

Other than the permit, for the logls- 
l.ntive buildings addition the only other 
large amount was- that for the new

al strike. Negotiations will be re- , 
tinned tomvrlrOw, but little Is espcctcd-- 
from these. 

The deadlock Is graver than was ex- 
pected. It has bo>n supposed that the 
greatest hostility would arise from the 
Welsh mine owners, and public opinion 
uas ttirning In favor of the miners, 
who. it was thought would be satisfied 
with the concession of the principle of 
a minimum wage, leaving tho adjust- 
ment of details to subsequent arbitra- 
tion or negotiations. It is now seen 
that the miners themselves arc proving 
the, greatest obstacle In the way of a 
peaceful solution by Insisting upon 
their own interpretation of the terms 
of the minimum wage. It Is this as- 
pect of the situation which renders the 
outlcfok almost hopeless. 

At the same time it Is felt that the 

government's efforts have not been 

wasted. The government has secured 

i the assent of sixty per cent of the mine

deadlock Is insuperable. 

In Its statement tonight the govern- 
ment .«ays it is satisfied t>terc are cases 
in which underground workers are not 
able to earn a reasonable minimum 
wage, and that the power to earn such 
wage should be secured by arrange-

Such a public act of disrespect and 
disloyalty could not be allowed to pasH 
uimotlced, and so Hushdl Pasha, who is 
minister for foroU'n atfalrB, at once 
sent for Farld I3ey and upbraided him 
for his behavior. The Nationalist lead-

Changes Suggested to Aug- 
ment Water Supply from Elk 
Lake, City's Pi'esent Source 
of Supply 

Following the ilnfortnailon furnished 
at Monday cvenlnjf's nieftlnK of 
the city council by Water Commission- 
er Raymur. that the water In Elk Lake 
Is at present at the lowest point at 
this time of the yetir in several years, 
and that consequently not a ciropshoulo 
be wasted, even for street sprinkling, 
beyond what Is absolutely netreasary 
for the latter purpose, Alderman Cuth- 
boTt. following up his suggestion matit. 
on hearing tlie official's statement, will 
r.rc« upon the council the necessity of 
prompt action towards ensuring a morb 
generous Hupply than the present plant 
is capable of produclni,'. Yesterday tht. 
representative of Ward Four posted a 
notice oi a motion which he will submit 
at the next meeting to the eftect that 
the water commissioner be Instructed 
to prepare a report as to the^advlsabl^i- 
removlng the ' ' " -»----

taken from a human eye thai had be«n 
removed for «ther reaaonB. 

Based on t'hlB operation far reaching 
concluslonB have boeri made in regard 
to the curing of bllndnesB. These are. 
unfortunately, exactly as Utile Justified 
as the statement that this -operation Is 
entirely new, says a •^f's] known Herlbi 
medical publlclMl. 

"As a uiatter of fact." he says. "11

bud been ln««-rted euccessfully theni- 
Kflves Krew optxiue wlibln a few weeks 
or montiis, so that the patient was a.s 
badly off as before. Finally, this op- 
eration waM performed (first by E. 
Fuehs, In Vienna) by transplanting a 
human cornea, through which some good 
or at least fairly durable, results were 
attained. The first of these successful 
oiieratlons was performed by ZIrm in 
Olmutz. Accounts of several others 
were published later, among them one 
by Prof. Greeff, in Berlin, who report- 
ed an Improvement In the strength of 
vision of his patient of one-fiftieth Po 
one-twentieth. The results are up to 
now In general in no wise remarkaViIe, 
but Jt Is to be hoped that the dlfHcuU 
technique of tlie process will be further 
improved. ~

probably it would b* necessary to pump 
the water from Beaver LAke 'Into th« 

niter beds. At present the intaito pipe 
draws Its supply from Beaver Lake, the 
sliallow adjunct of Dlk lake. Not only 
Alderman Cuthbert. but others of thu 
board as well as many ■citizens main- 
tain that the supply In Elk lake, which 
has an average depth ot between 60 and 
60 feet, would be ample for ail needa 
were better facilities for pumping in- 
stalled. They sugrgest the extension 
of the intake pipe out Into the deepei 
waters of the lake. In such case the 
water can be drawn up to a much 
greater extent than if the Intake is al- 
lowed to remain as it Is in Beaver lake, 

i'.ill, becomes very shallow. 

The Sooke lake scheme will not be 
completed for two years at the least, 
and the city's supply must bo secured 
from Elk lake unless It bo augmented 
through the city's right to purchase 
water by the' gallon from the Esquimau 
Water Works Company. If the latter 
step be not adopted, necessary changes, 
several members of the council aver, 
must be made to the present limited 
pumping facilities at Elk lake.

MAN'CHE:STER, Eng.. Feb. 28. — 
.Something new in the way of ghosts is 
reported to hOrVe made Us appearance 
recently in the nurses' home at the 
Manchester Royal Infirmary, and timid 
nurses and ward maids have crept T>e- 
tween the sheets fervently lioping that 
the weird visitant ■ft'ould not disturb 
their slumbers. 

It is no orthodox ghost that Is said 
to 'have been haunting ih© nurses' 
apartments. According to th>5 most au- 
thentic story the apparition is of the 
feminine pef.suaslon, and la ciacfin a 
long black gown and stole, the only 
relief to its sombre meke-up being its 
ghastly white face, its long sinuous 
nngers and blanched lifeless hands. 

In such^fOim at all events it Is 
said to have presented Itself to a nurse 
some weeks ago. She had been out dur- 
ing- the eveninp. and on being admitted 
was passing along tlie corridor towards 
her room when she noticed the figure of 
H woman a few |>aces before her. Thlnk- 
ins.-- "the lady " had made a mistake and 
had got Into the premises In error, she 
hastened to overtake "her," and was in 
the act of tapping her shoulder when 
the apparition disappeared. 

When the story was told to her fal- 
low nurses a search of the premises 
was demanded. N'lght porters and others 
lay in wait for the unwelcome visitant, 
but their vigils \Vere unavailing. Not 
that the "ghost" had sought fresh 
haunts, for new stHJries of a terrifylnK 
nature continued to be circulated. Ward- 
maids told of how the spectral figure 
dlsensraged Itself from the hangings of 
a friendly curtain and darted across 
the passage before them to be swallow- 
ed up In a doorway or corridor. 

Pokers and flat irons were by this 
time nndlng their way into t*e sleep- 
ing (apartments, but. according to the 
story told by one yoimg lady, these 
precautions ovailed them nothing, for 
In the early liourn of one morning she 
was startled to find a clammy hand 
stretched over her face. 

"Have you seen the lady in black?' 
became the catch-word In the home. 
The incredulous onef: asked It Jesllngly, 
but to some overstrung Imaginations 
the thing was no Joke, and many un- 
comfortable nights were pa.«sed. Kor a 
time it was the popular theory .that 
"the Khost" owed Its existence to the 
prank of some medical student, but in- 
v.stlKatlon?. did not support this vIpw. 

PARIS, Feb. 28.— Good fo ,^„,,,^ 
befallen the employees of ii. Delatour 
a wholesale boot and shoe maker, who 
has two factories, one in Paris and 
the other at Llancourt. M. Delatour la 
a self-made man, and for forty years 
has worked harder than any of hl.s men. 
Today he is a iniillonaire, but has 
neither wife nor children to share his 

One day recently he was obliged to 
remain at home through indisposition, 
and as he passed the kitchen he sur- 
prised his old servant in tears. In re- 
ply to him she said she was depressed 
at the thought of what would happen 
to her if he dismissed her. The inci- 
dent set M. Delatour thinking, and ' 
next day he sent for his lawyer and 
settled an annuity on the old woman 
for life. 

But he did not stop there. He re- 
solved to hand over the works to his 
employees, and under his instructions 
the lawyer drew up a deed transferring 
the birtldings and plant and stock to 
fifty of the men who had helped him 
to make his fortune. This is equlva-- 
lent to a gift of about $400,000. or an 
average of JS,'/jO to each employee. 
The donor, however, stipulates that for 
the next three years the direction of 
the factory shall remain In his hands 
and none of those who benefit will be 
at liberty to realize his share before 
the end of that period. 

The announcement ot M. Dolatour's 
Intention has not been received by his 
employees v.-ith i!r,mixed ioy. owing: to 
the fact thiit only 50 out oU 300 men 
will share In his liberalit y.

BERLIN. Feb. 28. — News of a senaa- 

Pormed by Dr. Magitot In Paris, and 
(le»crlbed by Professor lustre in the 
French Academy of Scientie was spread 
a snort time ago by the press. The 
case was that of a young man with a 
marked opacity of the cornea, whore the 
operator out out the opaque piece and 

wild enthusiasm, 3,000 citizens as- 
sembled in Messey hall tonight and 
passed a resolution protesting against 
the granting of home rule to Ireland. 
The sentiment of the gathering was 
unanimous. At times the desire for 
this expression became so pronounced 
with the audience that the speakers 
were forced to desist until the cries of 
"Mo home rule." "Nevpr." or groans at 
the mention of Winston Churchill's 
name or at the name of Sir Edward 
Grey, had died down. 

The resolution states that the belief 
of the meeting Is that home rule would 
result in the separation of xr«l<»na from 
the empire and declares that separation 
Is the goal of the movement. 

•■We believe further, that Ireland 
could, in time, become the centre of a 
conspiracy agnlnst the integrity of the 
British Kmplre. and might ultimately 
lead to the overthrow of the 
power and Influence that, as Qanadlan 
cltUens. we rejolqe In. We believe in 
the extension of the principle of 
autonomy, when It can be grnnted with 
.«afety to Imperial Interest."!, but believ- 
ing as wa do that the peace and pros- 
perity of the nations of the world are 
involved in the maintenance of the Brit- 
ish empire, we view with the utmost 
alarm the propo.«als contained in the 
bill coming before the Imperial house of 
commons, which .tend not to the enlarge- 
ment of the liberties of the Irish people 
undpr a free government, but to the 
.•rentlon of a papal slate within the pm- 
plre, where British law and Justice will 
he superseded by the canonical law of 
the papacy, as Is the case In the prov- 
ince of Quebec ih this Dominion; and, 
further, tlml we unhesitatingly declare 
that the views set out In this resolution 
present the opinions of the vast major- 
ity of loyal cltlzpns in the Dominion of 
Can.ada, notwith.'itnnding the expressions 
of sympathy with Jiomc r\i1p adopted at 
different times by the parliament of 
Canada and the legislatures of the 

•'W'« desire also to give expression to

shall say nothing pending the receipt of 
a copy of the plans. 

If 18 very evident that connection with 
the new piers must be provided, ^or 

wharf accommodation at the point mcn- 
tured without connection wUh the ra.l- 
v.ys would be of little real value. There 
are two ways An which this connection 
can be made, one of them is l^ the 
proposed Harbor Kallway: the other is 
b7 way of a bridge from Songh^cs Point 
to Laerel Point: that is. across the nar- 
row channel where the soap works now 
Bij-nd. The first method Is objection- 
able', in our judgment. One of the rea- 
sons why we take exception to it is that 
it would place the control of the harbor 
frontage in the hands "of a few private 
. individuals. The franchise would be 
on» of extremely great value, a value to 
be measured in mlUlons. The city of 
Vancouver l» an object lesson or wnn . 
the control of a waterfront means. In 
xiew of the great commercial possibili- 
ties before Victoria. It would be rank 
felly to permit any corporation to en- 
circle the harbor with a railway line. 
Xnothcr objection is that such a rall- 
^vav would be Utterly Inadequate. We^ 
are looking for the establishment here 
o- a great commercial centre. To the 
wharves to be constructed atf the Outer 
Harbor we expect to see vessels come to • 
receive and discharge full cargoes, when 
v.r. have all-rail cornecti^jn with the 
.Mainland and car^fcrry "connecHon with 
five railways on the southern Mainland, 
provided we have flrst-ciass facilities 
here. To suggest that trains laden with 
cargo brought or to be carried away by 
such ships should be drawn along a rail- 
way following the sinuosities of tho In- 
ner Harbor is an absurdity. Kither we 
must have the suggested bridge or the 
icieign business of the port, will be 
liKudicd elsewhere than between Ogden 
colnt and the entrance to the Inner 

j.-or these reasons we look upon the 
l.aurel Point bridge as essentially nccs- 
sary to the utility of the intended har- 
bor works at Ogden Point. We refer to 
this matter today because we wish, ns 
far as wc arc in a position to do so. to 
m.'tkc known what wc believe is the opin- 
ion of the great majority of the people 
of xhis city. A matter of this kind 
ought not to be allowed to drifi. We 
do not say that there is any opposition 
to the proposed bridge, but some may 
develop, and we think it to be our duty 
to say lu n'^ undeitaln terms that the 
people of this city consider that, with 
the contemplated improvement.^^ of the

An Italian resident of Victoria pro- 
tests against the harsh comments upon 
people of his natlonalty appearing from 
time to time in news ntms from othor 
cities on this continent. It Is only 
right to say that the Italian clement of 
the populMlffn of Vlctorlti is among 
the mf^plerly and that the older 
residents here, who came from Italy. 
always show themselves to be excellent 
cltl^sens. '

ion of the courts. , 


His Boyal Highness the Duke of Con- 
naught, accompanied by the Duchess, 
will visit British Columbia m the au- 
tumn. It goes without saying that the 
welcome extended to them will be a 
very cordial one. 

It is not premature to suggest t'rmt 
aneaiiybpginning should be mado' on 
plans for the reception of their Royal 
Highnesses. Pending the election 
nothink . -: l>ne. we assume: but 

we suggest that, as soon as it is over, 
the mayor should take the initiatory 
sfteps towards a civic reception that 
will be worthy of Victoria and of sudi 
distinguished visitors.

Wc are gravely assured that "tlie 
guarantee period of the Paciflc Great 
Kastern bonds is not less thnn foriv 
y,.„,s, whirh means that Mr. McBrlde 
will make it tlfty years as has been 
authentically rumored." This Is sup- 
posed to be an exceedingly dreadful 
thing. The only difference between a 
40-ycar guaranteed bond and « oO-year 
guaranteed bond Is that t >>, public 
would pay more for the latter than for 
the former, end hence the capital 
charges against the railway wotJid be 
so much the less. But. if as we are 
ft.iked to believe, the guaranteeing of the 
bonds means that the province will have 
to pay them, It i" sim-1n- hfttrr to put 
oft the evil day Hfty years than to have 
it come in fr.;ty. We hove heard no 
suggestion of PNtfiullnR the guarantee 
to flfty years, but wc do say that if we 
lw.d so iKJor an opinion of the future 
of British Columbia as to believe a rail- 
way diagonally across this province 
from V.incouvpr to Port Oeorge would 
be more likely to default on Its bonds

Objection has oeen taken to the early 
ilftte fixed for the nomination of candi- 
dates at the forthcoming election, which 
1^ to be th- 11th Inst., and not the i:th 
as announced. We are Inclined toL-think 
the length of time between \^nom- 
Ination and election Is In the interest 
o' the gentlemen who arc chosen by the 
Opposition as candidates. There wt'l 
always be some uncertainty until noin- 
inatlon day as to who will bo in the 
field, and a new randldato is always 
under a disadvantapo in having the date 
postponed until a short period before an 
election. The regular political parties 
never wait until nomination day before 
putting their mcp In the field, and it l^: 
•an advantage to them to know ns early 
as possible If there ftre to be any otners 
before the electors. On consideration 
we think most people will agree with us 
that it is advantageous, especially to 
opjxiKlilon i^andldatos. to have the nom- 
inations over as sonn as pos«il)U-. It is

LONDON, Feb. 28. — In the course of 
an interview yesterday Sir Ernest 
Shackleton gave some interesting In- 
formation regarding the probability of 
early news from the various Antarctic 

"There are," he said, "fl\e expedi- 
tions In the Antarvtli;, British, Aus- 
tralian, Norwegian, German and Japa- 
nese. Ot liie British, liiicier Cajjiaiii 
Scott and the Norwegian, under .\mun?- 
.•^en, we may hear at an.v moment. T-"'or 
reasons which T wlU explain, I would 
not be surprised If Amundsen's ne\\8 
came'to hand first. 

"In view of the competition. It is 
certain that Scott woj^ld leave the base 
in MKctnuruu Siraii ai the earliest poR- 
slble moment. This would be about 
February 10. He should reach Steward 
• Island. New Zealand, three weeks later, 
as he has to stop at Cape .\dalr to pick 
up some 0f his party. 

■'Amundsen will make his way to Ho- 
liait from his .\ntarctlc base in the 
Ba>' of Whales. .M though he will have 
a lonscr return Journey than Scott, he 
has no parly to pick up, and prevailing 
winds will heip his ship, whereas Scott 
will have to beat up against a we.sterly 
wind. It i.s for this reason that I 
.should not be .surprised if news from 
.\iriundKen came first. 

"In tlie case of Dr. Mawson's expe- 
dition the Australian ship the Aurora, 
should arrive at Jlol)art about the he- 
glnnim? of April with news as to the 
exui't places where his party hus been

VilE.VNA, Feb. 28.— It Is reiported that 
the war estimates for the current year 
will make some provision for an aero- 
nautic station at Pola, where naval 
officers tan be trained to fly the aero- 
planes, wihlch will In the future be 
attached to the Austrian fleet. Ap- 
parently only about $5,000 will be asked 
for this yea.r us a first instalment, as 
the war minister has entered into a 
blndlifjt promise not to Increase the 
estimates beyond an amount already 
fixed. However, the government seems 
to expect tiiai ihe deievatiuns will

Woman and Oonntry Ufe 

Is the tendency to crowd into the 
cities which seoms common to the old 
world as to t^he new, the fault of 
women chiefly? Dean Russell, a VVls- 
conaln professor of agriculture, says 
that It in woman's dlaiike of drudgery 
and her louKing for excitement that 
causes the migration of thf fainily to 
tho city or that frustrates tlic ettorts 
of those economlats and philanthropists 
who are promoting the back-to-che- 
f.n ni movement. He c<insider.s that 
this Is one of the '•Igns that tho now 
woman is a falluie. It I3 har<l to be-

residents of cither city or country from 
becoming poor, sick or wicked, if con- 
ditions are unfavorable. In «-^r own 
great province it Ih far mort important 
that the population ijiiaU be effblent 
than that It shall be numerous, necea- 
sary though it Is to establish Industries 
and develop the farming and fruit lands 
of our valleys. In the eslubll.«hm»'nt of 
an excellent school sy.stem a very good 
beginning has b< en- made. No matter 
how fast or how large the (,'rowth of 
the population of UrltlHh Columbly may 
be, schools will be ready for the rising 
generation. It is hardly «?oncelvablc 
that wldespri-ail ignorance can tver 
exist in our province. Btit It is to be 
r<.-ared that there are other way.s In 
which we ar.' not preparid for an In- 
flux of many sirangerH, whether from 
the mother country or from foreign 
lands. In the Pacific States prepara- 
tions are being made for new condlltonM 
and it would be wist for us to follow 
the example they are setting. It is not 
only the government and transportation 
companleK that Khould be prepared.

A Oood Plan 

In San Francisco -there are m- 

a hundred local ini^fovementcl! 

more tJjan; half of them aro. active. 

These societies take iipon tb<?tnsrt;lve.'*>. 

duties of all kinds which tend to mJiKe 

the citizens better or to supply their 

neighborhoods with improved facl'ltlea. 

It appears that there is no little rivalry 

between these clubs, and that this cups 

not always tend to the good of the 

whole city. On the other hand, r-mch 

has been done both to beautify ns-lgh- 

i.i.rhi.ods and to help residents tollvi; 

licttt-r lives. ■ 

In Vict. Ilia there is much roonv for 
.sudi work. Although we do hot yet 
live In a largeclty We are falling Intt* 
the fault of detachment which is one 
of the most harmful features of clt.v 
life. People are coming to Victoria 
from all directions. In the same nelgfi 
borhood lamillea from England, Scot- 
land and the Atlantic provinces, the 
Middle West, and perhaps from South 
Africa, New Zealand and Austrnlla are 
to be found living near the homes made 
by the sons and daughters of Victoria's 
old-timers. There are among old resi- 
dents many who have means and leis- 
ure to enlnrxo their iMrcle of acquaint- 
ances, to :inv f-x tent consistent with 
their Inclination. But this is not true 
of all. Most bt us are very busy people 
and those who have been here manj 
ycar.s have as many friends as they 
can entertain or have time to visit. 
Wo excuse ourselves from calling 01. 
the newcomers. The men. very prob- 
ably know each other in a business 
way: the children must mlnfrle to- 
gether In the classrooms; but the wo- 
men have no common Interests. They 
may meet >n the ears or In the shops; 
but they d6 not know each other, even 
by name. This l.s not a wholesomf. 
sign of city growth. The people wno 
live in the same neighborhood should 
i,« friendly. It Is lor th« bencHt of ^n 
that their .stirroundingti should be 
beautiful; that the schoolhouses sii.tII 
be spacious and In every way suited to 
the edu<?atlon of the rhildren. and tint 
playgrounds shall be pro\lded. These 
and many_other things would be among 
the matters to be considered I'l '.oc«« 
Improvement cluljs. If men aiid Wo- 
men met together to discuss these 
things the consequences would be not 
only better neighborhoods but happier 
and more united citizens. It only :i< eds 
some one with good sense, good feeling 
and enthusiasm to set on ifioL In Vic-

In placing In the estimates the sum of 
ten thousand dollars for the Home for 
AKed and Infirm women, tht govern- 
ment is entitled to the gratitude of the 
citizens of Victoria. This Institution has 
been the means of doing a vast amount 
of good; It is very wen manaKe-i and 
the commlttet In charge of it. spare 
neither time energy or thought In the 
service of the old ladles. 

It has been found absolutely necessary 
to provide an infirmary for thtlr sick 
and helpless charges. No hospital can 
minister to the needs of those whose 
inflrmltles are caused by old age and 
whose suffering can only end with 
death. The natural place for such pa- 
tients Is the home where Kentle hands 
ma y minister to their wants and chtrct- 
ful ttnder kindness make the close of 
life bright. But where no relatives are 
left, sueh services can only be render- 
ed In a place devoted to the care of 
patltnts of thlH class alone. 

Kvor since the new home w;i5< oi.ened, 
part of the old wooden building has 
served as an Infirmary. U is now quite 
too old to be used any longer. Besides 
thl.<», therf are no lonpcer any rooms to 
saper in Uhb main building and sevcrnl 
applications have been received from 
women needing shelter. 

It Is absolutely nect.ssary to eompletn 
the building by erecting a new wInK. 
It is towards this work that the Me- 
Bride government has trlven this gener- 
ous grant. The work will now be pro- 
leeded with as rapidly (is poaslbU and 
as rinc an inr*titutIon complrted as .any 
of Us kind m any city In Canada.

the regular "t)1&CtSW0' 
IK coming ^season. TJ — ^ — _^

Messrs. Burite, Grindell, Devogt and 
Ladd. The salary demanded by a player 
of MeeKa outstanding ability is more 
than a league of Class C status is al- 
lowed to pay and his purchase from 
Waco has been througih that fact alone, 
as he is exceedingly well liked there and 
was the brainiest player of the south- 
ern team. 

Twoinonth.s ago when Manager Wat- 
telet was away he flrst heard of Meek. 
He waa then offered to Victoria as a 
manager. But at that tlms . the local 
management had plans laid in other di- 
rections RB r^jjards a manaser, but was 
willing to pay the salary desired to se- 
cure his services. The propositton has 
been pending for this long time owing 
to the fact that Meek, who Is owner of 
a good business in Chattanooga, ha^^ not 
decided whether he would like to come 
to the Coast to play ball. However, h« 
has made up his mind to come, and 
late yesterday afternoon Manager Wal- 
tolet received a telegram bearing the 
joyful word of hla decision to come, 
which filled the local manager with de-

Mi 1 k' record alone speaka for Itself, 
and ail the adjectives in the language 
could not tell any more than the tlgures 

■of this years 1912 official baseball 
S'Uide. He hit just .310 last season, 
which counted most in run getting for 
his team. "Meek la a pinch hitter pure 
and simple." says his former team 
manager. The former waa 'field captain 

. of Waco. 

i»4 .jfameis he' «^8l*»t^l«*l 3S3 PJit 
oo^tB with the remarkable assist record 
of 123, whloh shows that he must have 
caught a few on the bases, and that 
no one but Ty Cobbs, etc., are going 
to get by him. Hf« harriiMl, all told. 473 
chan'ces with but 13 errors, a record 
that will take some heating in minor 

put in the averages against him. Now 
that is some record. In that same boo. . 
son only 69 bases were stolen from Mr. 

Meek is 27 years old, has had plenty 
of experience in handling pitchers and 
uses his head in the same fashion that 
I.,ewls. the mainstay of Vancouver's 
champion team, did last year. Meek is 
there in every capacity as a ball player. 
Mis purcharte will never be regretted If 
lie delivers to the Bees what ho has 
(lone elsewhere. Ho measures six feet 
in liclghi and has a wonderful throwing 

in 1910 Meek played in the Southern 
League with Chattanooga, wlilch la a

games, made 16X put outs with .",7 as- 
sists and 4 errorn. His official fielding 
percentage for that sea8.on read .980, 
which Is a wonderful mark for the dif- 
ficult i>osltlon behind the hitter. He fin- 
ished fourth in the league and hit .."^OO. 

Now Victoria will have a most reli- 
able catcher and batter, who. with Nor- 
dyke hitting at the .same clip, will give

SA'SK.\TOON, Feb. 28.— George 
Saumweber, manager for Loe Kossick, 
writes the following, in which he re- 
plies to Harry Bernard, managet' of Joe 
Bayley. From wihat he says' there 
would still .seem to be a chance for a 
match being arrangetl between hln 
protege, "Young" Kossick. and Joe 
Bayley, but It does not look as though 
It will be scheduled for another couple 
of months. Mr. Saumweber's letter is 
as follows: 
Sporting Editor, Saskatoon Capital: 

Sir, — In reply to Mr. Bernard's letter 
1 will' say i;nat 136 ioa. la lair euoUKli 
for Kossick but his actual welgtit la 140 
lbs. He can make the lighter weight in 
warm weather readily enough, but if 
Mr. Bernard is willing for Bayley to 
meet my boy at 140 lbs. I will consent, 
and be ready at a week's notice. This 
also applies to any of the so-called

are several. I have reference to those 

. cnat cannot really make the lightweight 

limit, but go in anywhere from 135 lbs. 

up. Now, If they cannot make the one 

division, why not make the other? I 

state Kosslck's actual weight, which 

some of the other fistic artists refu«o 

to do. Kossick is a first class man, 

which his record shows, and worthy of 

a good match. We willing to 

give away weiglu in reason. Thanking 

you for the space, T am, your.s truly, 


Manager, for Loe "Young" Kossick.

It Is possible that Ell Gates may be 
trnded to some club this aeason. It 
Becnid as though Vancouvfr wants to 
get rid of Kli for some reason or other. 
Gates, Without any doubt, was th» best 
utility pitcher last scaJion in Mip leapuo. 
He can hit. 

Bob Brown has asked for waivers «ti 
FrUk. Swain. Gates, Ous Thompson and 
a couple more men. It is not lll<ely that 
any of them will be ousted from the 
Beavers for a while though.

the third week in March. He is en- 
joying his visit home with friends. The 
bout Is to go fifteen rounds. 

In Riley, the local boy should find 
one of the strongest opponents he has 
yet been called upon to meet. The San

Foley to his credit, Vias beaten Jimmy 
McGarthv on points, and foug*ht a 4-

judgment Against Johnson 
Jack Johnson broke a number of en- 
"^"sments which he oontract^d to fill 
when In England, and seveiral promoters 
were considerably out of pocket because 
of his non-appearance. Some of the 
managers took civil action against the 
big smoke and one Frank McXaujrhton 
has obtained judgment for £1500. It is 
altogether likely tliat other actions will 
follow, and the world's champion will 
probably have to pay a good sum 
for hl« contempt of contracts.

William A. l.,arned Is. without iiues- 
tlon, the most commanding figure in 
the history of American lawn tennis. 
During the 10-year perltMl from 1891 
to 1901 he was the "uncrowned king 
of American tennis," although he was 
never quite abl« to capture the na- 
tional title during that time. He first 
won the chnmplqnship In 1901, defeat- 
ing Deals Wright In the rovind. 
and M. D. Whitman. the holder, by 
default in the challenge round. He 
retained the title In 1902 against R. F. 
Doherty of Englapd, why won tiie 
tournament, but, lost it In 1903 In tho 
challenge rounil to Doherty'u brother, 
H. L... who won the tournament of 
that year. I-arned played In the tour- 
naments of 1901, 1905 and 1906. but 
was defeated In 1904 by Karl Behr In 
one ot the earlier rounds, in 190.S by 
Beals Wright In the semi-final round 
and m 190fi by W. J. Clothier In the 
same round, In 1907 he again won 
the tournament and took the title 
from Clothier by default of tho chal-

OTTAWA, Feb. 28.— The Capital I-a- 
crosse club will probably change hands 
again this year. A syndicate of wel 
known local sporting men believe that 
a four-club league consisting ot Ot- 
tawa Cornwall. Shamrocks and Mon- 
treal can be u.ade a huge success and 
they are ready to take the 
Uy off Bllsky's hands should the latter 
decide to sell. Negotiations are now in 
view and If the new firm takes hold 
of the team It will be hoisted up and 
made a- champhmshlp possibility If 
money can brlUK Bl>out the change.

Ilcflaotlon In Number Ordered by Arch- 
btoliop Causes Much Excitement 

In B0BSl» 

VIF;NNA. Feb. 28.— Great excitement 
has been caused In Bosnia by the action 
of the Roman Catholic Archbishop of 
Serajevo. who has reduced the number 
of religious holidays in the year from 
fifteen to five. 

This step was reconv " ' by tho 
Pope In a receipt Motu Pi uiresscd 

to thfc episcopates In all countries, as 
the V»ticah has been persuaded that 
fljHHfipathollcs are prejudiced in com- 
^^^^w^and industrial competition with 
! nts by the excessive number of 

cnurcii festivals on which they are at 
present not allowed to work. Among 
the days which hrT ' struck off 

the list are Boxing 1 'cr Monday, 

Whit Monday, Candlemas, A ;1on 

I"»ay, and CoriviTH cni-isti. 'J 1 ■ King 
classes In I no prospect 6f 

having thtii i,i,.^t;d proportionate-

the free days, particularly as their Or- 
thodox fellow-cltlzens have twenty-five 
holidays In the year, besldta Sundays, 
while there are practically no I'rotes- 
tants In the province 

Tho formal announccnient of the re- 
duction of the holidays <UirinK the ser- 
vict In the Roman Catholic cathedral 
at Serajevo led to something like a riot. 
The congrc.vrations shouted; "We won't 
irlvc up our holidays." and assumed kucIi 
,, tlireatoning attitude that tho police 
iiad to clear the cathedral and make 
several arrests. Meetings of protest

easily be made at home. You will find 
nothing that takes hold of en obstinate

add tho Sugar Syrup. It keeps perfect- 
ly. Take a tecspoonful every one, two 
or three hours. 

This is Just Itixatlve enough to help 
cure a cough. Also stimulates the appe- 
tite, which is usually upset by a cough.

Richmond Park Now! 


G. T. P. 


Richmond Park lots are the only really desirable residential lots 
inside the city limits and close to a car line at first prices. Improve- 
ments are coming fast, and are of a nature to enhance values quickly. 
A comparison of prices and advantages in this district will be greatly in 
favor of Richmond Park. The terms, too, are longer than usual for 
property so close in. 

The best way to profit by the great improvements taking place in 
this district is to secure one of these lots at once. There are not many 
left and' when they are all sold there will be no more at this price.

would be started to haye the negotia-

In the general discussion ^)f the fjues- 
tion which followed the remarks of Mr, 
Rattenburj' it was stated that if the 
company could be induced to build a 
great hotel in the -city of Victoria In- 
Htead of Vancouver it would mean a 
grt:at boost for the city, because it 
would inevitably make the port of Vic- 
toria the homo iiort of the company's 
line of stf o soon to be augment- 

eO. If tl. 1 iiccomplished then the 

vr'ssolfr- plying between here and the

first call at IhA port of Victor la, becaii'^- 
it would be In the Interest of the com- 
pany to keep the hotel as full as pos- 
•'• ' nembers of the ex- 

fi ibjcct, and evinced 

tJie heartiest co-operation jn any steps 
that might be taken to bring the matter 
to n speedy head. The resolution that 
was passed by the exchange upon the 
matter provided that the'hotel to be built 
must be as commodious if not more eo 
than the Empress, and in order to enlist 
the sympathy of the city council a 
r.pccial meeting will be called tomorrow 
afternoon, at which the mayor and ald- 
cimen of the city will be Invited to at- 
tend. Mr. Rattenbury will also be pre- 
Hfnt. In fact the meeting is being call- 
Al thus early on account of tho fact that 
he has ijo leave for Montreal at the end 
of the week to dlscu.s.-j with .Mr. Hays

catlon for marriage, we,-e advocated by 
l?r. Tredgold In an address to the 
KuKenlcs education society last night. 
This Mugptstion leaves the idea of ccr- 
tlfloated brides far behind and is likely 
to provoke a large amount of discussion 
from widely divergent f land point."?. 
Whatever may be said about the sug- 
gestion, Dr. ThedRold Is well quallfh-d 
lo speuk upon tht subject. He- Is con- 
sultlnK physician to the National associ- 
ation for the care of the feeble-minded, 
anil won a medical expert to the Royal 
i^ommission of the feeble-mindtd. If the 
rece was to advance some form of .se- 
lection niu«t clearly take tlie place of 
natural selection, he urged, and (ht only 
form was birth selection. 

No person should be allowed to marry 
without n licence, which, should be 
granted after a medical exaniinaUon of 
Mie Individual and an Inquiry Into his, 
or In r, family- history. ThI.s would 
neceBsitjite the notlHcatUm of partlcuiHrs

Rumors of Mr. Asqulth's retirement 
grow more definite and authoritative. 
Still, it would look at this di.stance as 
though Mr; Asquith could not resign at 
this juncture — he eould only desert. A 
few months aEO. one would have said 
that «ir Edward Grey could replace 
him without friction: but the Radicals 
have by now supplied the friction. The 
frequently repeated statrment in the 
cables that Sir Edward Is unsympa- 
thetic towards the Toclal Keform 
nieasures of the ministry. Is absolutti^ 
untrue. Sir Edward Is almost a LKg 
Georgian In domestic politics. It 
Itltely qolte as untrue that the Radloa! 
attack tipon him has been prompted by 
)t«#ther motives than a dlsUke of his 
foreign policy. His foreign policy has

"\\c art- i/''ifn ':>j]\iv\\\c(\ to mo\c- on the beaten path." 
These are the works of Lord .Vlacaulay, ilie greatest historian 
of modern time?;. 

The man who buys "Irnporicd .i.,a:. ;-, on the beaten path, 
and is paying doitble price for his smoking. Because you can 
luiy 2 "NOBLEME.\" Cigars foi Ihe price of one imported. 
The Davi.s "NOBI-vEMEN" is a revelation in cigar produc- 
tion — only the pick of Cuba's best leaf is used in its inanu- 
facture. ^flK 

"Imported"^ Cigars arc much more heavily taxed than import- 
ed Cuban leaf. This is why the "NOBLEMEN" cigar can^ 
be sold at 2 for a quarter. | 

Once voti try a "NOBLEMEN" you will stop paying absura

L'olian's satire on American lilgh fin-

which has been pronounced the most 
brilliant comedy of the generation, will 
be frlven a.t the Victoria Theatre to- 

The play comes here almost direct 
from two seasons lu Js'ew York and a 
year In Chicago, and the few large cities 
where it stopped off on Its western trip

that it is the host comedy setn in many

on the George Bandolpb Chrstei- Mtnrbs.

thla skflletots has built what has been

The same spaed and incessant action 
which marks all the Cohan productions

get Sound tilt Nippon Yusen kalsha i« 
credited with the l«itent}pii of running 
steamers " Into Portland. JJothing Is 
known here Is this rtgiira. The Tacoma 
Ledger says: "According to gossip In 
local shipping circles the Nippon Yustn 
haisha, operating a line of .steamers 
from Tacoma and Seattle to the Orient, 
is to inaugurate a service from Port- 
kind to the Orient. No announcement 
has been made by the company, but it 
is understood that the line will be in 

;ieratlon before the new atfJ>jnfr)|^.of 
-Weir- "line- are placed", on i3|^pp||^s: 

'Whtn Andrew Weir disconHntied the 
.Australian Mall service, so the story 
goes, for a consideration from the Union 
Steamship oom'pany of .- New Zealand, 
leaving Waterhouse & Co.. acting as his 
managerial agents, out in the cold, the 
Waterhoust company Immediately an- 
nounced that the Australian line from 
the Sound would be continued by it with 
iliartered steamers. It was planned to 
Keep to tlie monthly sohedule, but it 
wa.s said no steamer was obtainable for 
the present month's sailing and the 
schedule was disarranged one month. 
Evidence of Breach 

"As a further evidence of the breach 
bf'tween the Andrew W'olr company and 
the "^Vaterhouse line, the Weir company 
is know^ to be planning to place two 
sttamers In direct service from Port- 
land to the Orient. Waterhouae & C.>. 
lire already operating a service from 
Portland to the Orient, via Pu5«t Soim'i 
port(j, and naturally the n»-,w Weir line 
will be in opi>osltlon. 

"The Waterhouse company continues 
to operate Weir steamers Ih this ser- 
vice as the vessels werfc under a five- 
year time charter and Still have two 
years to run. It is said that after the 
tiarter expires the Walerhousb company 
i\U continue to operate the service with 
chartered steamers. 

"It was theWaterhouSfc company that 
bought out the Portland-Asiatic Steam- 
ship company a year or two ago, taking 
over the charter contracts held by 'tliat 
i-ompany. Th« Rygja and Hercules were 
in this service and are still in thf fleet 
operating from Portland, Tacoma and 
Seattle to the Orient. 

•'Shipping men in touch with the sit- 
uation say that the Nippon Yusen kalsha 
.service, will be established before the 
\\'iMr steamer.s are rrndy for the trade."

steamer Prince John Had Work Boat 

Swept from Porward ..^ack When 

Crossing Heca.te Strait 

The steamer Prince John of the 
Grand Trunk Pacific, operated between 
Prince Rupert and the Queen Charlotte 
Islands, encountered heavy weather on 
her last trip. The work boat of thot 
steamer was torn from its lashings b>' 
heavy seas and swept overboard. Many 
green seas swept the declc of the 
steamer as trtie jvallowed In tue high 
waves, and one sea, breaking over the 
forward deck, swept axvay the l)oat 
from the forward hatch. Captain 
Wearmouth said he had never seen 
such weather in i rocite Strait.

the islands. 

There will naturally be great irejolcing 
among the people of the islands at the 
announcement that tho matter of the 
mall contract has at last been settled. 
I'or months past strong committees have 
been at work endeavoring to secure the 
subsidy for the G. P. R.. but. not un- 
naturally, the company holding the mall 
contract used, every endeavor to hold the 
.same. This led, so it is stated, to the 
ctmOiHftipri ^ .^port that the board of 
■ iCtS^II^^S^' ' 'ts weigiit amiinst the 

■wishes Of tlic people of the islands, and 
was endeavoring to prevent the C. P. R. 
from being awarded the subsidy. 

A Colonist representative yesterday 
interviewed both the president, Mr. H. 
G Wilson, and the secretary, Mr. F. El- 
worthy, of the board of trade, relative to 
the matter, and was informed that it 
was absolutely untrue to suggest, as 
they were Informed had been suggested, 
that the board had at any time taken 
any attitude antagonistic to the ex- 
piessed wishes of the people of the Gulf 
isliinds In regard to the matter of an 
Improved steamer service, and the 
awarding of the mall contract. 'They 
mentioned that the board of trade, im- 
mediately after the accident to the Iro- 
javois, had taken steps to urge upon the 
eC. P. R. the desirability of putting a 
steamer on the rotate, feeling that such 
company was In ih Obviously better 
position than any other to give suich a 
service, as would meet the ncwde of iiie 
Situation, And since that Initial action, 
said the president a.nd the secretary, the 
board of trade had absolutely done noth- 
ing which could be Construed as oppos- 
ing the^ desire of the people of the 
iBlt:'nd8 to see that the mall contract was 
awarded to the C P. R. 

board of trade was first apprised, by 
n)eans of a letter from a resident of the 
ii^Iands addressed to a local firm, that a 
feeling existed among the people there 
that the board was opposing the appli- 
cation of the C. P. R. for the subsidy, 
and prompt steps were taken to explain 
to the writer of the letter wiiat was the 
actual attitude of the local organization. 
r>««»\(te this, however, r'^ports continued 
to be circulated among the people of the 
islands, and when the reporter called 
upon the officlalK yeeierday they wel- 
comed the opportunity to make this ex- 
planation, which they contend will be 
borne out by every record appearing on 
ihe books of the board. 

Mr. 'Plworthy ad'lf'd that on Wednes- 
day last he liad an Interview with Mr. 
G. Bullock, of the Islands, and to prove 
thf bona fides of the board In the matter 
offered to send any telegram he might 
suggest to Mr. G. H. Barnard at Ottawa. 
Mr. Bullock accepted tlie offer, and a 
wire was duly dispatched to Victoria's 
representative at the capital. Yester- 
day, as already statnd, the C. P. R. re- 
ceived word that the mail contract had 
been signed. ' ' 

The steamer Joan will run from Vic- 
toria every M'onday Tnorning, and call 
at tho Island ports en route to Van- 
couver. I.,eflvlng there Tuesday morn- 
ini;' she will return to Victoria via the

To Give Life and 
Beauty to the Hair 

(From London Hairdressers Review) 

"More dull, brittle.faded and falling 
hs-lr results from too much washing the 
head than from any other catise. If you 
want to see your customers' hair grow 
In btauty and color, and brilliance and 
luxuriance, stop drenching and rinsing It 
and depend upon dry .shampooing. 

"Dry shampooing once a week will 
bring about wonders. Hard and scaly 
scalps become soft and pliable. Coarse, 
lifeless and splitting hairs will take on 
ntw life, become soft snd glossy and 
Ihe natiirnl color will r.>turn. 

"To make a shampoo i)Owder mix 4 
ounces of orri-s root with 4 otinces of 
tnerox. ttpnnKie a laiiiespoonfiii ovpp 
Ihe head and brush thoroughly through 
th« hair. Don't spare the brushing. This 
trtatment tones up the hair from root 
to tip, removes dust, dandruff and ex- 
cess oil, leaves the .<»calp clean, cool and 
refreshed and the hair rich, aoft and sil-

John one of the (flnes| harbors on the 
whole Atlantic coast, and will bring to 
Its whaa-ves a constantly growing traf- 
fic all the year round. 

But there is another great reason 
for the enthusiastic optimism of the 
citizens In the assurance of rapid In- 
dustrial growth. The Edward Part- 
ington Ptilp & Paper Co., in considei-- 
ation of a fi-xed assessment for a term 
of years, has Just agreed to spend HflOO,- 
000 at once on the enlargement of the 
pulp mill, and to add a paper mill at 
a cost of $500,0011. It l.s expected that 
this company, will be merged into 
the Consolidated Pulp & Paper Co., 
v.'hlch has 15.000.000 rapttal. 

The promoter of the autrar refinery, 
which it was expected would bo erect- 
ed at St. John, has asked for an ex- 
tension of time, and offered certain 
pledges, but the city council has re- 
fused to give its assent, and so ad- 
vised the Dominion Government whl-ch 
Is Interested in the proposed site. The 
Iron and brass manufacturing firm of 
T. McAvity & Sons are very anxious to 
get this site to assemble their whole 
plant and greatly enlarge their opera- 
tions. It Is certain that the' 'site will 
be utilized for manufacturing pur- 
poses and construction work begun this 

A company vv'injnw ivame is not di-

works. Twt^ty acres are needed and 
thP city's properly l.*< not Ciuite 30 large 
hut an effort is being made to secure 
the necessary addition &t a reasonable 
figure ami gQt the new industry. 

The construction of a factory to man- 
tifp.cture blockite will be begun as soon 
as the spring opens, and a local firm 
of tanners have askt-d for a fixed as- 
sessment on condition that they on- 
large their plant this year. The cea-- 
talnty that the great .harbor works will 
Ro on is regarded as practically assur- 
ing the construction of a large cement 
works on a, desirable site close to the 
city by English capitalists who hav« 
already secured the site. 

Other Industries are certain to fol- 
low the present movement. The East

Some Advantages 
of Having This 
Company Named 
as Executor 
and Trustee in 
Your Will 

Because acting in these 
caiiacitics is our business, 
therefore wc are naturally 
able to handle sucli work 
more tiuickly and satisfac- 
torily and less expensively 
than an individual wlio has 
his private affairs to aitend 

Because it requires tech- 
nical knowledge and much 
experience to satisfactorily 
handle trust funds and it 
is unreasonable to expect 
expert knowledge from 
limited experience in this 

Because the faithful per- 
formance (>( the duties of 
tliis company as executor 
and trustee is guaranteed 
by its total assets, amount- 
ing to over $3,000,000, as 
well as by its bond with 
ihc govetniihent and by 
government inspection.
