this: That the striking shopmen

that the railroad labor board will
grant them a rehearing of their
grievances and assume "jurisdiction
over the much-disputed seniority
question. It was pointed out that
this plan might be followed without
the acquiescence of the railway ex

work and if their old places, under
the seniority rule, were denied

Mr. Goodell did not mention any
organization specifically. .
"One thing ..that I am going to
touch on is very, delicate," Mr.
Goodell began. "Some of our posts
have been split, possibly not open
ly. Lifelong friends will hardly
speak. We more or less look askance
at each other wondering is he or
isn't he. It strikes me as a ter

it will not live, for I know that the
legion will live. To me my buddy
means much more than some one
who was not a buddy, and who hap
pens to belong to the same church
that I do. 1 cannot believe that a
true legionnaire would belong to
any organization which would in
fluence him to put his buddy of a
different religion on the other side."
After Mr. Goodell had finished,
committee reports were heard.
About 50 posts in the state were
not represented at the convention
today. Dr. F. H. Hoskins, who spoke
for the credentials committee, said.

VICTORIA, B. C, July 27. (Spe
cial.) Two enormous suns 55,000,000
miles apart, yet discernible only as
a eingle faint star to the most pow
erful telescope; brighter many thou
sands of times than our sun, yet in
visible to the naked eye; greater in
mass four times than the heaviest
body heretofore determined in the
heavens; burning at 30,000 degrees
Fahrenheit as they whirl about each
other at tremendous velocity, 52
quadrillions of miles from the earth
these are the Piaskett star, newly
determined and named, which will
commemorate the farmer's son who
tolled his way from the broad farm
lands of Canada to the great field
of the universe, and leave his name
among the foremost of his time in
ttie ahnals of astronomy.
Rise to Fame Arduous.
The life of Dr. John Stanley
Piaskett, whose discovery of the
extraordinary properties of the
Piaskett star, ' announced a few
days ago, is hailed by the scientific
world as the outstanding astronomic
achievement of recent times, is a
tale of the triumph of talent and
grit over adversity. Remarkable
from his earliest years as a math
thematician, at the age of 12 he
was, through his highischool and'at
the steps of the university.
But it was the drudgery of the
farm that then bound the ardent
scholar, and it was only after nine
long years of toil in the fields ot
Ontario that he began his student
days at the University of Toronto.
Now the farmer's boy is one of the
world's noted astronomers.
Discoverer Is Modest.
Here in'Victoria, since the com
pletion In 1918 of the big Canadian
government astrophysical observa
tory, he has been installed director
of the great 72-inch telescope, than
which there is one only larger in
the world. So colossal is the tube
that a small motorcar can be driven
"Marvelous that a little matter
like that should create such inter
est," said Dr. Piaskett, of his dis
covery. "It was only chance that
was responsible; or, rather, steady
adherence to our routine work. We
have determined about 100 of these
binaries, or double stars, but never
before one like this."
Remarkable Properties Important.
The discovery, points out the doc
tor, is scarcely of the star itself,
but of its remarkable properties.
It had" been known to exist, but that
"Observed visually or photo
graphed, the star exhibits no par
ticular properties to distinguish it
from the 2000 other stars of the
same brightness," said the doctor.
"It was only when analyzed by the
spectroscope, in the course of "our
regular work, that we got a won
dereful fund of Information concern
"The star is situated in the con
stellation Monereos, eastward and
adjacent to the familiar Orion group.
It is about 10 degrees from the
bright-red star Betelgeuse.
Visibility Almost Obscured.
' "It is on a line drawn between
Betelgeuse and Procyon, nearly
midway between the two, actually
about two-fifths of the distance
from Betelgeuse. It is just beyond
naked eye visibility except to the
keenest sight on the clearest night.
"The popular conception of the
work of an astronomer is that he
spends his time in desultory search
ing after new planets and the like,
or in examining .the details of the
moon and the stars. Such work
with a telescope of the size of the
72-inch instrument would be a great
waste of time. Such a statement
seems especially desirable at this
time on account of the -near ap
proach of Mars to the earth and
the apparent general belief that
astronomers are devoting most of
their energy to observations of this
planet with a view to the deter
mination of the perennial question
of its habitation by human beings.
Interest In Mars Wanes.
"While I do not Venture to deny
that the question of life on Mars is
of great human interest, and, if it
,were possible of definite solution,
would be worth considerable effort,
nevertheless it is a matter in which
most astronomers have little inter
est. "They realize the hopelessness of
obtaining data of scientific value on :
such a question and prefer to bend
their energies toward some research I

Tendler, starting with great con

to the 1 champion. He pummeled
Leonard with stiff lefts to the body
and sharp rights to the 'head and

the first of the rounds that Tendler
was to have things all his own way.
Then "Leonard steadied himself
and began to find a mark. He car

seventh his mouth bumped Tend

Leonard at close quarters and
