Phone 2019, Oak bay Branch BOY CAMPERS ENJOYING LIFE Y. M. C. A. Outing at Beaver Lake Proves Highly Successful Adding to the success that attended its opening, the camp of the Boys' Work Division of the Y.M.C.A.

at Beaver Lake is progressing, with 50 boys in camp under James McEwan. Baseball, swimming, stunts, treasure hunts, industrial hikes and ice cream feeds, to copy a few of the items on the busy camp programme, have kept the campers in such good spirits that the difficulty is to persuade them to come home. Last week the camp was treated to an linexpected ice cream feed by Dr. Hill, excellent lecture on the solar system by W. E.

Harper, of the Astrophysical Observatory. The boys went on an eight-mile hike to Brentwood, where Edwin Tomlin, B. C. Cement Company, arranged for their transportation to Bamberton, where three merry hours weer spent in going, over that plant. Master Mechanic Walker took the boys in charge and went through the entire process from the quarrying to the finished product.

Returning, the campers rolled in their blankets beside a beach fire for the night. On Saturday parents and friends were guests at the camp and entertained to an excellent programme. On Sunday H. A. Beckwith and Ira Dilworth spoke briefly on interesting The Foxes won the efficiency contest for the week, and were treated to an ice cream feed in reward.

This week the plan has been somewhat changed and two schedules will be in force, for older and younger groups of boys. Mr. Harper will again address the gathering, this time on "The Stars." A motor bus will leave the Y.M.C.A. building in town at 2 p.m. Saturday for the camp, so that visitors may go direct.

Yard, 809 Johnson Street Stout Aldermen to Race at Employees, Picnic at Elk Lake Stout aldermen reported to be in vigorous training are, now for strenuous races to be held at the civic em.ployees' big annual pienic at Ell: Lake Saturday when City Council members will struggle for athletic fame. Betting at the City Hall today was all in favor of Alderman S. Woodward, who was 8. sprinter in his youth and who still has a good deal of speed left and Alderman E. B.

Andros was widely favored among the heavyweights. A big programme of sports has been arranged by the civic employees for their picnic. In addition to various foot races for everyone in the city service, including the City Hall stenographers, there will be feature events like tugs-of-war, putting the shot and climbing a greasy pole. City employees will leave for Elk Lake early Saturday morning. Cars will leave the City Hall at 9.30, 9.45 and 10 o'clock.

The morning, will be spent in swimming Elk Lake filter tanks. After lunch sports will commence at two o'clock. One member of the City Council, probably Alderman W. J. Sargent, will speak to the gathering on behalf of the City Council, as Mayor will leave for his annual vacation to -morrow, and will not be present at the picnie.

SOLICITOR ADVISES AGAINST CLUB LAW Would Increase Beer Clubs Here, Sangster Is Warned Alderman George Sangster, leading advocate of a club by here, conferred yesterday afternoon witn City Solicitor H. S. Pringle on the advisability of licensing beer clubs immediately and learned that there are serious legal difficulties in the way of the proposed license measure. Mr. Pringle made it clear to-day that he would not advise the Council to pass a beer club by-law which, he believed, would not be a success If the Council decided to pass such by-law, he believed, large numbers of beer clubs would spring into existence here as they did in Vancouver, following the passage of a club by.

law there. Alderman Sangster holds that the city should secure revenue from numerous clubs operating here and asserts that the City Council has nothing to do with enforcing liquor laws. He is gaining little support for his by-law plan, however, as most Council members appear to think that the Council should not put itself in the position of licensing establishments that break the law. Passage of a club by-law, they fear, would make it seem that the Council was recognizing and condoning law breaking. COMPLAINT WITH A STING Following on the tragic death in Saanich resulting from the sting of a wasp or bee city police to-day handled with every precaution an urgent request to remove a wasp nest from Fairfield Road.

The concluding appeal, concerning damage by water floods Glenmore, Yale, consumed three days before a conclusion was reached. The present sitting Court of Appeal has been one of the heaviest in recent years. In all 35 hearings were listed, representing litigation that ran well into the million mark, and in which counsel fees will range between $50,000 and 000 in the aggregate.

The court opened on June 5, and sittings continued without intermission on every day to date. Yesterday the court broke into the third week of the long vacation, or three weeks after other courts had completed its work for the season. Including the hearing just completed judgment was reserved in 22 cases; six appeals were allowed; three were dismissed; one was quashed, and three withdrawn. STINGING INSECT CAUSES FATALITY (Continued from page 1.) Mrs. Vickers ran for water and bathed his face and throat but was hampered by the fact that the mouth was clenched, and the teeth locked tightly.

There was no electric light in the house, but by the light of an oil lamp Mrs. Vickers did what she could to give relief to her husband. There was delay in securing the services of a doctor, and when Dr. A. C.

Sinclair was notified and arrived Mr. Vickers had passed away. Expert Testimony. To the court to-day Dr. Sinclair said that he found Vickers dead when he arrived.

Death had been due to suffocation, an autopsy showed, caused by abnormal swelling of the throat passage and the tongue, passage became completely blocked. The features were blue as in cases of suffocation. From the base of the tongue on the right side of the jaw the doctor extracted the sting, which when examined under the microscope showed that to it still adhered one of the poison sacks. The victim had been heavily poisoned by the sting, but whether that of a wasp or bee the doctor could not say. There was no poison in the stomach.

In his opinion death had due to a closing of the air passages in the throat, with the poison from the sting as the cause of the swelling. In summing up Coroner E. C. Hart remarked that the case was most unusual. The evidence, he said, was unmistakably clear and he would be willing to accept verdict of accidental death-no other conclusion could be reached intimated the jury and retired to return with that verdict in a few minutes.

A Remarkable Occurrence. To The Times later Coroner Hart stated that while no cases of this nature had come under his own observation before there were five or six analogous cases reported in the annals of medical history. The closing of the air passages would have produced death in approximately a quarter of an hour, stated Dr. Sinclair later, remarking on heavy discharge of poison from the sting. Sincere sympathy is being extended to the family.

The late Mr. Vickers was born in Newport Pagnell, Bucks, England, and had been a resident of this city for the past five years. He is survived by his widow, one son at home, and his parents, Mr. and Mrs. George Sidney Vickers at East abyine funeral will take place on Fri.

day at 2 o'clock from the Sands Funeral Chapel, and interment will be made at Ross Bay Cemetery. Thinks It a Wasp E. H. Blackmore, the well-known local entomologist, told The Times this afternoon that he believed the stinging insect was a wasp. The gland of the wasp contained formic acid, of a much more venomous nature than the sack content of the bee.

He points out that a wasp is much later in its flight at night, and that a bee would probably have been back in its hive by the time that the occurrance happened which cost the unfortunate man life. edis CONCERT POSTPONED Owing to this month being exceptionally busy with small fruits and harvesting, the concert to have been held on Saturday, July 21, by Miss Clare Powell at West Saanich Hall. Sluggetts, has been postponed until a later date. TO SPEAK HERE. Rev.
