ARE "PSYCHIC" BIDS UNETHICAL I SATURDAY. JUNE 20, 1931.

TVERT to often a new word or a ytm loom large upon the Bridge horizon, and Bridge players nrol themselves feverishly In the ranks of those who vote for or against It. At the present moment the word "psychic" THE storm of protest that has greeted the publication in London of General Pershing's war book comes to us here as a sort of anti-climax. For we have been privileged to read it in in-A GREAT stallments in the press of AMERICAN, the United States. We have digested it chapter by chapter and I suppose our individual comments have been much about the same as those of the British press. But we have this advantage, that we come closer to understanding the American mind than the people at home can possibly come.

And after the tumult and the shouting has died, we are able to recognize that General Pershing is a very great American. If he had been a worse American and a better internationalist or ally there would have been less to criticize. There are not wanting military men even among the Allies who are willing to admire the determination of the general to put nothing in the field but a cogent and self-contained American army, and his determination to go on and win the war himself, unaided by the Allies, if such became a necessary course. It would have taken him some years, but one must suppose that in time he would have done it. group of aldermen become interested in a project they can do a great deal more for it than if they have to be coaxed and cajoled and importuned.

Vancouver has a library board of five one alderman and four citirens, though the City Council has, for some years, secured double representation by the convenient plan of making the city comptroller one of the cititcn members. Winnipeg has been considering two plans, one a board of five citizen members, two aldermen and the mayor, the other a board of five citizen members, six aldermen and the mayor. The latter board seems unnecessarily large, while the citizen members, being outnumbered by the aldermen, would have no real power. The Toronto board, which works very well, consists of nine members, the mayor, three persons appointed by the City Council, three appointed by the Board of Education and two appointed by the Separate School Board. The Winnipeg plan of a half-mill rate for libraries would, if applied to Vancouver, give the board about $136,000 for the current year, or $36,000 more than it was awarded under the Council'! original estimates.

This would amount to abodt 56 A ONDON BRIDGE The new bridge I fast approaching completion. The granite stone, of which the greater part Is made. I from Devonshire, Aberdeen, and Penryn, In Cornwall, and th greatest possible care has been taken In selecting the ttone. It I believed that the old Spiritual Court attached to St. Saviour's Church In th Borough will be taken down.

The Bishop of Winchester been Informed of the necessity of removing that crumbling piece of antiquity. Immediately after the opening of the bridge the contractors will begin to take down the old bridge, and it Is supposed that In leu than 12 months not a vestige of It will be een. It will be recollected that soma time ago two of the larger arches of old London Bridge were widened by breaking the two neighbouring arches Into them. The effect of thia wa remarkable. The current wa eo great through the enlarged arches that the water under that on the City tide became 14 feet deeper In a very short time than It had been.

Some apprehension were entertained relative to the abutments, when the Immense power of the current wag eo unequivocally exhibited; but the eommittee Immediately set all fears to rest, by throwing round the abutment an enormous mas of ttone. which they had at the Isle of Dogs. About 70 years ago, when on of the arches wa widened, In order to favour the navigation of the Thames, almllar mean were resorted to, and the atones to which the old City gate were attached were dropped down, to prevent tht bridge from tumbling in.

Why can't we have a new attitude toward our library? A Talc Of a Family The Story of the Macdonalds of Olenaladale. Is reverberating thunderously up and down the battle front; and "psychic" bids are being used aa ammunition by expert and Inexpert alike, sometime with most disastrous result to themselves. What I meant by a "psychic" bid? Speaking broadly, It is a bid which does not mean what It says. It I made always with the object of deceiving the opponents, sometimes in the hope of forcing them to bid too much, but more often with the object of making them bid too little, to that they will not arrive at a game or tlam contract. For example, suppose a player, for some reason dependent on the bidding or from his own holding, haa reason to suppose that his adversaries may bid a game In Hearts.

He bid Hearts himself, in order to confuse them and head them off even though hold nothing whatever in that suit. "But that sort of weapon," you say, "may very well act at a boomerang!" And to It frequently does snd that bring us to th much-discussed question of whether psychic bids are honest or dishonest. There Is an enormous difference between intentionally breaking the Bridge laws, and making an unsound bid In order to deceive the opponents. In the first Instance, the player who does so It a cheat, pure and simple, while in the latter case, he is a gambler. In the days when Auction was played exclusively, It wat alwaya considered fair to try to make an opponent bid too much; why then, in Contract, should It be unfair to endeavor to make him bid too little? In either case, the bidder is taking a risk, and is likely to be hoist with his own petard and left with hit psychic bid he take the same chance of misleading his partner as he does hi opponent, and so the risk is a fair one.

So that psychic bids are not unethical from a general standpoint, unless (and the "unless" Is a big one) the partner of the psychic bidder knows In advance that a "psychic" Is likely be made In a certain situation, and the opponents do not in such a situation, the psychic bidder Is guilty of violating the code of honor of the game. As a very comprehensive example of psychlo bidding I give a hand which was played in the competition for the Vanderbllt cup: A 9-5-4-3 at None 4 Q-10-7-6-3 7-4-3-J HENRY BIRKS SONS LIMITED DIAMOND MERCHANTS were the product of his own observation. If that observation was faulty, he had at any rate the courage to record it instead of writing the sort of compliments that he would have been obliged to regard as hooey. On the whole, it is a good thing rather than a bad thing that we should have been privileged to get the true angle of the general's mind upon the matter. a meeting of students held at Bowen A' Island, Rev.

K. Shimizu, in speaking upon the "Problem of the Second Gen iii i 1 1 1 i i 1 tnFNTIAL SCHOOL 2J a in rtt, nA.ntJi AURORA-ONT, UPPER SCHOOL AND LOWER SCHOOL DOUKHOBORS AND OTTAWA. There is a warrant out for the arrest of six Doukhobors of the Grand Forks district, on a charge of obstructing the census commissioner, and apparently the warrant was issued upon the commissioner's authority. It seemed for several days as if there might be the making of some interesting politics between Ottawa and Victoria upon the execution of these warrants. Despatches from Grand Forks suggested that officers of the provincial and Royal Mounted police, "on the advice of superiors," had refused to make the arrests.

But now, it appears, Attorney-General Pooley has given specific orders to the provincial police officers to execute the warrants. "The warrants," says a recent despatch from Grand Forks, "have been given to Sergeant William Greenwood, who is getting In touch with his superiors and asking for reinforcements, as it is presumed there will be a lively time before the arrests are made." There was a highly-interesting suggestion about all this. What it came to was an assumption that Mr. Pooley was seizing a favorable opportunity to impress Ottawa with a due realization of the chronic nuisance created by the fanatical tenets and practices of that particular sect of the Doukhobors which calls itself the Sons of Freedom. If that is the true statement of fact, if Mr.

Pooley did actually hesitate for a moment before he honored the writ of the Dominion Government against the Doukhobors, we are bound as British Columbians to have a certain sympathy for him. There ia no doubt about the attorney-general's duty and responsibility in this particular affair, of course, and Mr. Pooley is not the man to need any reminder of it. He has to enforce the law of Canada in British Columbia, and he has to enforce it even when it ia no more than the Census Act, and when it is invoked against the defiance and contempt of a recalcitrant sect ef religious fanatics. We can rest assured, if the provincial police have been entrusted with the execution of these federal warrants, and no matter what the "lively times" may be before the arresti are made, that the arrests will be made, and that these Sons of Freedom who spit upon the laws of Canada will be duly brought in.

But it is all the more salutary, if we must have more of thia chronic nuisance of the Doukhobors, that we should have it on an issue which involves the Dominion Government. The Provincial Government has repeatedly sought the co-operation of Ottawa in the troublesome problem of dealing with these irreconcilable people, and Ottawa, as far as the record shows, has always stood aloof upon the strict letter of the Constitution. It was the duty of the province to enforce the law against crime; if the Doukhobors were defying the law, the responsibility was the province's. But thia time the case Is a little bit different. While it was a case of burning and blowing up British Columbia schools, or of parades of naked Russian peasants upon British Columbia highways, Ottawa might look on from afar.

Now it is the express authority of Ottawa itself which is flouted, and it is an officer of the Dominion Government who is derided and insulted, and it it he who invokes the protection of police and magistrates. If this latest instance of Doukhobor nonsense does nothing else, at least it may have the good effect of securing the attention of Ottawa at last.

He added that the Japanese are losing their self-respect because society had no place for them. The meeting having discarded the suggestion that the Oriental should move homeward, It was urged by Dr. Kiang-Kang-Hu that it is the part of the Christian to lead the way in inter-racial marriages with a view to the absorption of the one race in the other or the production of a new one. If, however, the Canadian Japanese is shown to be losing his self-respect because there la no place for him in society, how much more then would he be liable to lose his self-respect and also the respect of his fellow Japanese should he mix his own especial and characteristic race with the white people? The result would be that both races would despise the outcome of such a conjunction. The Japanese would not lose his self-respect if he would maintain, even in Canada, hia racial religion, customs and distinctive qualities.

When he abandons them for something he does not understand and does so for material reasons alone, he has right to lose his self-respect. fluctuations in the life of Mary's Little Lamb seem to be continuous.

Hughes. A PREMIUM ON MEANNESS. Before Mr. Justice Gregory in the Supreme Court at Victoria, the cause of Sonley vs. Cann has come on for hearing, and has been decided in favor of the plaintiff.

By this action, Mr. E. S. Sonley, a relative of the defendant Arthur Cann, claimed Mr. Cann's winnings in a sweepstake, in the sum of $7739.

The plaintiff sued under the "lottery informer" section of the Criminal Code, subsection 3 of section 236, which provides that such winnings, the proceeds of an illegal lottery, are "liable to be forfeited to any person who sues for the same by action or information in any court of competent jurisdiction." We suggest that Parliament, at the present session, might usefully consider the case of Sonley vs. Cann, and might then look at this provision of the criminal law of Canada, to see whether it likes the look of it, and whether it would not be better for the people of Canada that such a provision should be done away with. We say this altogether without regard to the general question about sweepstakes. We believe it is against the public Interest that the state should encourage the gambling instinct in its citizens, and we think it would be a dangerous thing to validate sweepstakes in this country an opinion, by the way, which has just been affirmed by the Senate of Canada. But that is one thing.

A law which puts a premium upon the mean and degrading performance of the informer for money is quite another thing. This legal reward of the informer against lotteries, it seems to us, is the sort of thing which is repugnant to the consciences of honest men. It is likely to bring the law into contempt, to encourage evasion, to defeat the useful and honorable purposes for which the law is made. And, as the case of Sonley vs. Cann itself testifies, this law falls into contempt by the very natural and inevitable attempts which will be made to evade its intended consequences, whenever it is likely to be invoked.

Those consequences were evaded in Sonley vs. Cann, and all decent people will be very glad that they were. For this, as it appears, was a friendly suit. Mr. Son-ley, a relative of Mr.

Cann's, sued to forestall the appearance and claim of a real informer; and his counsel announced, when judgment was given, that his client intended to make over the priie to the defendant's mother. And no doubt many a judge, in a real ease of an informer's attempt to grab another man's winnigs in a lottery or sweepstake, would find some technical pretext to prevent the consummation of such mean proceeding. We are against the legalization of sweepstakes in Canada, and we hope they will not be legalized. But it would surely be very much more decent and honest to legalize sweepstakes than to prevent them by the encouragement of the informer for money. THE death In Montreal recently of Mrs.

John Archibald Macdonald of Olenaladale, P.E.I.. callt to th mind of a writer In the Gazette an Interesting atory of a Canadian family. When Prince Charlie unfurled his flag In 1745, It wa on the property at Olen-flnnan of Alexander Macdonald, seventh laird of Olenaladale. The story of the Ill-fated '48 la In the history books. But the story of Macdonald and his clansmen Is less well known.

Alexander wat tucceeded by hi son John, end the latter, late In the eighteenth century, decided to emigrate with uch of hi follower at would go with him. Population wa growing, the toll of the estate wat poor, and there were religious trouble which made life not particularly pleasant for good Roman Catholic. John Macdonald, therefore, sold hi Olenaladale estate to a cousin who had made a fortune In the West Indies, purchased 40,000 acrea at Tracadle, Prince Edward Island, and, when the property had been Improved somewhat by hit brother and an advance party, tent forward 300 of hit peopl and followed soon after with his family. This was thirty years before Lord 8elklrk established his colony of Highland crofters on the Island. The Macdonald reached Prince Edward Island not long before the American Revolution, and John Macdonald Immediately raised a company from among hit tenant and Highlanders settled In Nova Scotia and took th field, giving distinguished service during the war and losing hi younger brother Donald In action.

While he wa away, the government of the Island sought to reward hit patriotic endeavors by taking steps to escheat hit property for non-fulfilment of certain settlement obligation. A certain number of men were to have been settled on the land, and the, as It happened, were absent with their chief on military service. Captain John, on hi return, fought at hard for hit right a he had fought agaimt th Americans, and finally won. After year more of service to his fellow-Islanders. Scottish and French, he died in 1811.

Captain John's on, Hon. Donald Macdonald of Olenaladale, wa for a time president of the Legislative Council of Prince Edward Island. It a- th widow of hi son, John Archibald, whose death took place In Montreal. It la now more than a century and a half alnce the Tracadle settlement wa established, and the Macdonald are scattered. No (Ingle acre of the 40,000 the eighth laird bought now remain In th hand of hi descendant, and none of these descendant remain In Prince Edward Island.

They are scattered all acroea Canada from Cape Breton to Vancouver. One 1 In Australia, and Frederick, the eleventh laird, 1 in California. Only one member of the Olenaladale family, It 1 stated, allowed any talent for making money. Thia wa a rebellious' younger con of Hon. Donald Macdonald.

ETHEL WOODFORD. HAPPY ENDINGS.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow is not looked upon in these modern days as a great poet. He is regarded as too Intelligible. He often spoke in platitudes, but rarely, if ever, in riddles. And the Twentieth Century likes riddles. Longfellow has had his day and is in eclipse.

Whether he will emerge from eclipse as some of the Victorians are already doing seems doubtful. Usually, Longfellow was very direct and plain-spoken. But in one of his few facetioua moments he gave some wholesome advice to his fellow-versifiers. It was in "Elegiac Verse," an experiment in hexameters, that he penned these lines: "Let us be grateful to writers for what is left in the inkstand; When to leave off is an art only attained by the few. Great is the art of beginning, but greater the art is of ending."
