A Lecture by Capt. Adams.
On Sunday evening, dipt. Adams
delivered a short, hot 'Instructive lecture in Palmerston Hall on some of the
important questions connected with
the sociological problems of the present Any.
The lecturer commenced liy saying
that he thought it would he an excellent idea if a club, with the object of
mutual improvement hy the discussion
of those questions which alfect most
the material happiness of the human
race, be formed iu Midway. Free
discussion on any important subject
invariably had the salutory effect of
widening mens views, and of showing
them in which direction were their
hest interests.
Capt. Adams then began to speak on
the relations of Capital to Labour.
The contrast presented in large cities
between the two extremes of society,
the very rich and the very poor was
startling. " Why," he asked, "should
so great a contrast exist I1" The re-
son is traceable from the systems
dating fiom the feudal to those of the
present day in the disproportionate allotments of profits to employer and
employee. A laborer, it is estimated,
receives from one-third to a half only,
of the value of his labour, Thus an
employer employing a hundred men at
a dally wage of $2 a day per man,
profits himself tt) the extent of $20(1
in the same length of time. And not
content witli even these large gains,
employers are constantly endeavouring to make them larger hy cheapening the price of labour. With this object in view, the large iron-masters in
the United States have imported from
Germany and Hungary, men who an1
content to gi-»their services in return
for little more than the oare necesm-ies
of life. There is, therefore, not only a
perpetual and fierce war between employer and employee, hut between laborer and laborer.
Many remedies haye been suggested
to effect a change for the better in this
deplorable- state of affairs, but one of
the most notable is the doctrine advocated hy the Socialists. "My idea,"
said Capt. Adams, " of a Socialist, until I went to hear William Munis, the
celebrated English poet and socialist,
was of one who proposed to do away
with'law arid order." Instead of this,
the Socialistic doctrine is fundamentally opposed to disoi ders and a chief
tenet teaches of co-operation. Co-operation, with the fair distribution of
pi-ollt, as opposed tocompetlon with
unfair distribution and the cutting of
prices,
The difference bei ween an Anarchist
aud a Socialist is just this: Tlie An.
archist, believes in co-operation, but
voluntaiy co-operation, oral the will
of the Individual, the Socialist places
his faith in state control and government ; the Anarchist holds that the
functions of government, such as regulation of the post-office or state schools
could as will be controlled by the individual,. It is a great mistake to associate Anarchism with lawlessness lie-
cause a few more or less insane fanatics commit crimes in its name. The
word anarchy signifies simply without
law, not lawless. It is unfortunate,
however, that the disciples of the doctrine shonld be known hy such a
name.
The lecturer expressed his opinion,
that the economic problems were
gradually solving themselves, As an
instance of thu leaning towards co-operation, attention was drawn to the
act of the amalgamation, particularly
In the United Slates, of certain businesses carrying on the same trade into
one large combine. Thus in the country mentioned, sugar is controlled entirely by three men. And again tho
increasing number of joint stock coin-
panics iu ail trades, points to the same
truth.
When the full benefits accruing to
the idea of co-operation Is realised, and
the motto " Each fur all, and all for
each," accepted, a most desirable consummation will have been attained.
Capt. Adams then spoke of the privileges which the rich are able to command, because they are rich. They
outer parliament and make laws compelling tbe poorer class to purchase au
inferior article from them at a higher
price than ia demanded for a superior
article in the neighboring country, by
placing a prohibitive duty on the article of supeior, but foreign manufacture. They vote themselves subsidies
and obtain charters at the expeuse of
the tax-payer. The railways are own-
ed by them,, aud by exorbitant freight
charges they reap the profit that
should belong to the farmer and mine-
owner. In Hungary thu railway Is
controlled by the government. Their
policy has been to reduce to the lowest
possible limit the price of carriage or
travel, Thu charges there are from
one-sixth to one-tenth of those in this
country. The business of tbe railways
has in consequence improved so consid
erably, and the increased prosperity of
Ihe country become so marked, thut,
the Government have had the satisfaction of seeing the result of their wise
course. Again, in icgard to laud acquisition, everything Is In favor of the
ich monopolist. No man should be
allowed to l.uy land unless he makes
use of it. Allusion was here made to
Henry George's theory of Single Tax,
or a tax on land values only, the land
being owned by the state,
The remedy, however, for many of
the greater evils of lliepresentsystenis
of government rests with the people tn
apply if they will only apply it, If the
tax-payer deliberately shuts bis eyes
and votes for the man who will puss a
law compelling the payment of $1.50
for an article on this side of the line,
for which he need only pay $1 nn the
other, the fault is his. It is the duty
of the voter to vote against the monopoly of land, the monopoly of capital,
and the monopoly of manufacture.
In conclusion, freedom is the great
remedy for ills, aod co-operation which
will give a just return for labour is cne
way to obtain it. Let us hope I he day
will come when there will be no "master
and man;" when all honest labour will
be considered equully worthy. The
secret of reform is to to show people
their true interests. Io Montreal a
pack of hounds is kept for hunting
purposes. After a hard days run it is
found necessary to cleanse the dogs'
feet from the dirt and pebbles which
may have accumulated liettiwn the
paws in the course of the day. When
the dogs return from their work they
ure not infrequently cross and intractable, which makes this labour a matter of some difficulty. To effect the
purpose then, a large trough of soup is
provided, and the dogs are compelled
to pass through. Licking Ihe soupad-
hering to their feet, lhey at the same
time during the process of licking free
their paws from foreign substances.
One might preach to the dogs for a
long time before obtaining the required result. Instead of preaching tn men
of morals and ethics, make it. an object
to them to do right and they will do it.
At the close of the lecture, which
Capt, Adams explained was purely Informal, and more a talk than a lecture,
a discussion followed and some of the
Ideas brought forward liy Ihe lecturer
were subjected to a vigorous criticism.
A vote of thanks to Capt, Adams was
then moved by Mr. Cartuiel, and seconded, and the meeting adjourned.

•THE PR0BLEJf8 QF THE PAT."
 -v
The attention and imprest with
which it was evident, Capt. Adams remarks were listened lo by those who
attended Ids lecture last week, uilisl
|wve satisfied the lecturer that his efforts were not unappreciated. Al*
(hough we cjMiUOt agree wilh many of
(hu captaifr'a tiews, .considering his
|iigh slandlng as a lecturer ou sociolog-
Jcitl tiiul economic questions iu Eastern
(Canada, his kindness in lecturing on
(liese subjects III Midway, is the more
worl))y 'if W'thank".
■)'t)|i adoption, however, in this coun-
|iy of two, at any rate, of Ihe doctrines
advocated, wou|d increase indubitably
the general prosperity apd content*
•liunt of tlie people. When Free
'IVatte is recogni«eil as tho national
(j'tljcy of Canada, then, and not till
;l|Up, niuy we hope lo' see the country
praiipy that portion among the nit*
lions, to which Inil- natural resources
nnd valuable territorial possessions
rightly entitle her.
('..■operation, another topic on which
IJipt. Adams dwell, has been advooiit-
dd in THE Advance ere now. Were
the sysieni to be adopted by the f'urm-
fi'B of the Okanagan, not only'would
the individual And himself in belteied
rircuinstaiices, but as a class their in*
/lutjuee.aal.l prosperity would be considerably enhanced. The co*o|Wl'illive
system, could be adopted liy niineis
fo the same advantage.
Vyiiei* Capt. Ai|;inis vpeaks on mat*
peps less ||i-i|clici,l, he Is not so happy
in his oniu'liisloiH, We select, one of
several of his apparently contradictory
statements. After speaking for some
time on the evils nf monopoly, he tells
lis, if we are rightly construing his
words, that "the economic problems
pf thu day nre gradually solving them-
selves," Instancing the formation of
large I! combines" to prove his assertion.     .      j
Again, to iwoncile the saint-like
li'iopernnient which would be required
from every member of n Sneialiiilic society, in order that the indolent uiigln
folerate tin* toilers (if any), or the
vicious pardon the chidings of tlie just,
■with the by-no-means morally elevated, Utilitarian doctrine, "do right
because It is to your worldly advanl-
aB''," j.l aill||U\Tlial ol a puzzler. Like
the i]i,ns in the sturj- of lhe soup, a
(leiitlumuo who acted on this businesslike principle, might, perhaps occasionally swallow a gond deal of dirt.       .

the coast.
Capt, Adams goes to the Kootenai
to-morrow, and will probably be away
for a fortnight.
'fne gay and festive rattle snake is
enjoying himself hugely thia warm
weather. The temperature is Just sufficiently high to make the cold shiver
which one experiences when meeting
one of these gentry,'thoroughly agrea-
hle. A favorite amusement of the rattle snake, is to seat himself between a
spoony couple, and then make his
presence Known, He thinks it a great
joke to witness the cruel and sudden
parting, We learn, however, t hat retributive nnd swift, justice overtook
one snake thus " up to his larks." A
reptile, with nn less than eleven rattles
having come to a blond v and inglorious
end at. the hands of the heroic swain.
Mr. Arthur Roberts arrived in Midway on Friday last, having had a
delightful journey from Brighton,
England.
Mr, Billings, has, we are informed,
severed his connection with the firm
of Cochrane k Billings, of Vernon.
Mr. Billings has rented an otllce in Ihe
Martin Block, where he will be ever
prepared to advise the litigously in-
dined.
Much sympathy is felt for Mr, Powers, who has heen singularly unfortunate this year in losing several thousand feet, nf logs, owing to the unusual
"enssedness" of the river, which has
risen and fallen, and risen again, with
H lofty disregard (like llie National
Policy) to the puhlic good. On Friday
last, owing to a rapid rise, the entire
boom of logs broke away from their
moorings at the sawmill, envnlving a
very heavy loss.
We congratulate both Mr. Bullock*
Webiia'ciiiid the miners in his district,
upon his appointment to the post of
Ilecoi'tli'i' at Pmiyoos, If we may judge
from the aotisciciitoiis manner in
which as piillfe-cnnstiible, Mr. Ilitllock-
Welistei'iilti.niled to duty, the new

MIDWAY PUBLIC SCHOOL.
Jhe Seml-Annutil Examination.
f|)e semj-anniial e'xjvhijtpition of the
children of the Midway public school,
was heltl in Palmerston Hall on June
the 28th; and was curried on in the
presence, and with the assistance nf
patents antl friends.
Capt. Adams, who occupied the
chair, iu his opening remarks referred
to the great pleasure it. afforded him
to welcome the inhabitants of Midway
on this occasion, and the number present testified tn the interest taken in
educational batters in this school district ; he would further remind them
that as the twig is bent so will the tree
grow, it therefore behooved thoin as
parents, to see that the little ones received the thorough instruction necessary to fit them for the responsibilities
and duties of maturer age. He had no
doubt that the children of the Midway
puhlic school were receiving every advantage in this particular, and that in
the time to come they would make
such good uses of those advantages
in some measure to repay the labour
and anxiety which had attended their
bringing up.
The chairman Ihen called upon five
little boys to give a recitation, which
was followed by an examination in the
several subjects t, tight during the
term, and also other recitations,

VERNON NOTES.
IFrom our own correspondent.)
Asmall but appreciative audience listened to the concert given by the Ladies'
Aid Society of the Methodist Church
on Thursday evening in Cameron's
Hall. The programme—the excellence
of which was deserving of better patronage—consisted of cornel, mints, vocal duets and quartettes, readings and
recitations, Those latter of Miss Cogh-
lan deserve special mention; as also
the singing of Miss Goddyng whose
rendition of that beautiful song, "The
New Jeruslein," gave eyidence to
prove lr¥r claim to he considered a vocalist, of more than ordinary ability,
The return cricket match between
Vernon and Kelowna was played here
nn Saturday the ?2nd inst. The niateh
commenced at 10 o'clock a.m., and wits
not finished until after 8 in the evening. The weather proved favorable
with the exception of a light shower of
rain between 11 and 12 o'clock,
Tlie playing was very creditable on
both sides, but, this time the Vernon
eleven proved too strong for their
opponents, winning by 21 runs,
This is a glorious victory for Vernon,
as the Kelowna learn had hitherto
proved .invincible. The score was as
follows:
Vernon, 1st innings 83
"     2nd    "  ' ."  43
Total 128
Kelowna, 1st innings 53
"      2nd    "     51
fntal 101
Mr, Lefroy for the home team made
the highest, individual score, with a
well-earned 24, in tlm first innings.
While Messrs. Weir and D'Eath dis.
'ligttfshed themselves as bowlers, It
b expected that a return match will lie
played at Kelowna sometime ne'xt
month (July).
The band-stand erected by the Council at the request of the City Band, is
now about completed; and the Band
will give their first open air concert
from this exalted position, ,op Thursday evening, July the 1th.

The most ferocious anil successful brigand and assassin that the modern world
hos known luis just been arrested In his
career of rubbery, murder and abduction
In the rooky dollies of the mountain country adjacent on the north to the great
African desert.
This country Is called Kabylcs, onil Its
Inhabitants are Berbers, nn untaiiinblo
and bloodthirsty rfloo, dcsCcntletl from
aboriginal Africans and claiming descent
from Ham, the son of Noah.
Aroski-ol-Baohlr (the butcher) is a worthy descendant of suoli a stock. Ho Is now
forty-five yours nf upo, and by tits own
confession lias, In obedience to a vow, for
ho Is n must pious Mussulman, slain a
man for overy your of his life. How
many mon' lie has disposed of in the way
of liusiness he declines to state.
He is shout five foot ton Indies in
height, well mode and sinewy. Ills lingers are long nnd lapering and have a
marked resemblance to thu talons of a
bird of pry. Ills foot tire arched and
small, his fomlicnd high but retreating,
nnd thickly seamed with wrinkles. His
eyes are pluming when aroused, but at
rest arc veiled and somnolent, like those
of must Orientals, Iu fact, liis countcn.
unco has many characteristics of tho wild
creatures of the rocks nml woods.
In ancient times tho land of Egypt was
subject to invasion and conquest liy these
llcrco and relentless miiuntalmvrH, and
mural paintings, monuments and pictured papyri have preserved the forbidding
antl fierce flguros of these dark-skinned
robbers, l'lielr original naintis of "May-
zgl," or "iliidgi,'' or "Mnlizy," wore
handed down in their legends as demons
and evil dins under tho name of "Musi*
kcon," and were used by mothers to
frighten naughty children,
Tlie robberies of this modern Bnrnbas
recall tlio exploits of Itobin Hood and
Fru Diavolo, save thnt they are unrelieved
by a thifin of chivalry.
At the head of ti band of twenty-flvo
robiiers Areski has terrorized all Kabylos,
and set at detlance tho forces sent against
them by the French Colonial Government,
His men nre as murderous tut himself.
AH but opo are in the vigor of life; they
are from twenty to forty years of age, and
extremely secretive. Wrapped in I heir
burnous, a flowing robe, silent, and Immovable, they wait their prey. Tlioy
have slain, robbed and oheated, but,
strange to suy, only their own compatriots, for there is no record of any wiiito
man having been molested by them, and
for Hits reason they look upon the Interference of strangers as uncalled for and unfair.
Areskt has lieen many times caught,
and even sentenced, but until now lias
contrived to escape by the aid of false
witnesses. Unfortunately for him ho
committed the grave error of murdering
n man "willi a pull," His last victim,
an Anili sheikh, Abdul.Ibisuliid by name,
hold friendly relations with Ilia French
Govcrunr-ltoncful of Algeria. Viillo carrying the tribute of several native villages to Alg -ilu, he was ouptumt!, robbed
of the money and put to (loath wilh horrible torture. He was bctlen with reds nf
tlie thorny hibiscus common to tlm country, Ills Intuits aud feet were cut oil, his
tongue torn out by the mots, and, to
finish nil. liis oyos were put out and he
was stubbed to death with a hundred
wounds, The Colonial Government at
once stmt nn overwhelming force of native
pollcciind French military lo capture KI
llacliir and his band.
The strange discovery wns made among
the effects of Areski's camp of a well-
thumbed copy of tbo Koran. A richly
carved and gilt rosory, such as Is used by
dorvlsluw, wus also taken from tlio bosom
of his dress, so that it. (lops not appear
that this tiger pf tho desert dill mil. cnn,
sldor that his life of murder unit robbery!'
ln any wlso endangered bis passage of tlio
bridge "Al S|mt," finer than u linlr,
over wliieli tho true believer in Islam
must walk bare-footed to Paradise, or,
falling from which, by reason of the
weight of Ills sins against, the fullli, must
drop headlong into iho embrace of hod,
Notwithstanding his crimes Areski
found favor and assistance with tho very
people among whom he murdered and
robbed, This was owing to his undaunted
bravery and the report Unit his body was
Impervious to ordinarily weapons, and
that, ills life could bo only lakiiii liy
means of a silver bullet consnnrutod with
mysterious ceremoifo<to "Ariel," iho
angel of death, and tu "Mills," the monarch nf hell. A fow years ago Areski was
a porter on the quays of Algiers, Having
committed a robbery upon a fellow workman ho (led to Ills native village, where
he assembled a band nf villains over whom
he established complete imistery.
One day three of his band gave Into his
hands a sum of 700 francs, which they
hatl stolon from a traveler. The next
day, learning that the traveler was a
venerable marabout of Sotinuiiani, ho
hastened to restore the stolen money and
slew the prl'nolpal robber. From that
time fortli the iiaimi of Areski was respected liy lhe most influential marabouts,
and tho wise men of tlie country declared
that he was under the special protection
of the Prophet.
One d iy, at. n family fete, Aresld assembled at lliiii-tllnl, his native village,
all the natives nf tlio country. Mora than
n thousand gite-ls were present ut a festival where the Nutitch-Wollulis, or dancing
girls, displayed tholr most fascinating
graces and gathered mora than two tliiuis*
and franca from the spctutors, which tlioy
dutifully bunded over to die bandit, chief,

Being tried and condemned to death,
the roblier-assassin antl his band displayed the brutish resignation that, distinguishes tho llorbor at, his last gasp. Tho
faith of Islam inculcates tlie belief that
every man's -'kismet," ortlesllny, Is written upon his forchcud by the linger of
Allah, and that no efforts of his can
change it. Consequently when his timo
comes tho Mussulman wraps Ids head in
his mantle aud awaits death Imperturb-
abiy, murmuring "Allah-11-Allitli, Muhammad rostral Allah," which he bellevca
to be the shibboleth or jHissword which
will admit him into the gates uf Paradise,
Thus during his trial, when the President of the Assizes put tlie usual questions, Areski replied, "The dead speak
not." And from that moiiient till tho
fatal sentence was proiionccd, liko liigo,
''he never more spoke wopl,"

Tlio Doniocrutlc Party und Silver.
The probable influence the silver
ijtiestlon is likely to have in causing
dissension iu tbe ranks of the Demo
crude parly, is thus expressed hy an
American writer:
" Judging from present appearances,
llie silver question is going to rite the
the Democratic party. The three ele.
liients -gold men, International hi
inetlalists, and free silvei-ites—are
quarreling hotly. It is known that the
Democratic silver sentiment is wide,
spread antl ardent in the West and
South. How strung it. may be in t hi
East lias not yet been ascertained, be-
cause the newspapers of large circulation there seldom give voice to the Iw*
liefs of the obscure musses. In the
large Atlantic cities the press spends
for the commercial class, and often represents real puhlic opinion no hotter
than the press of San Francisco did in
the last campaign there, when Sutro
was elected mayor, with every daily
newspaper in the town against him.
The politicians, who have Ihe ear of
the Eastern press are of an extremely
practical school, and rely on organization and money rather than popular
appeals to carry elections. Politics,
like society, is much more closely woven in the East than in the West, But
whether the Democratic press of the
Atlantic side expresses the party's
feeling there truly or not, it is manifest thnt if the National Convention
were to be held next August there
would be u great Democratic split. If
the money plank of the platform declared for free silver, the gold men
would bolt and go over to the Republicans ; or if it should attempt the customary straddle, the silver men would
join the Populists, or endeavour lo organize an independent Democratic silver party,

A Notable and Splendid Occasion
Ol) June the 20th, the Kiel Canal was
formally opened; the German Emperor, ou hoard the liohenzolern, leading
the naval procession, in which the
following nations were represented
Germany, Italy, Great Britain, France,
Russia, Spain, Nut-way and Sweden,
the United States, Rounutnia, Den.
mark, Turkey, and Portugal.
A dispatch from Kiel, dated June
the20tll, says:—The weather to-day
was magnilii'cut, and the greatest ani
ination prevailed everywhere. At the
earliest hour thousands were already
eu route to Holteuaii and Leavensnlle
to await'he arrival of the imperial
procession from Brimsliiitlel. Thi
shipping in the harbour was profusely
decorated with hunting, and the port,
presented a very picturesque appearance. Stands on the neighboiing
heights were thronged with sightseers,
and masses of people unable to obtain
seats were grouped eveiywhere,
This lieing the 58th anniversary of
the accession of Queen Victoria to the
throne of Great Britain, by special
command iif lhe Emperor William a
royal salute was fired at noon from all
the German warships, which at the
same time hoisted the British flag to
the strains of the national anthem of
Great Britain.
On the whole the passage of the canal by the Imperial procession was a
success, alhough there were slight mishaps. The British royal yacht Osborne grounded, and the vessels following her were obliged to anchor until
she could be got off.
As the French gunboat Surcouf passed the several points along the canal
route she was greeted with hearty
cheers and the different bands played
the "Marsellaise" as she went by,
proudly flaunting the tricolor of France
before the assembled troops of Germany. It is difficult to fully describe
the general enthusiasm which prevailed.
THE ECONOMIC IMPORTANCE OF THE
WORK,
To give au idea of the great advantages to be derived from the opening of
this canal, it is only necessnny to say
that hitherto all vessels sailing from
the Baltic to any point iu the North
sea south of Hull were obliged to pass
clear around the northern promontory
of Denmark, The passage through the
canal will save to shipowners a distance of from 250 to 300 miles, No less
t lian 35,000 ships a year pass around
the peninsular of Denmark, hound
from one sea tti another, This point
is regarded as one of the most dangerous in European wattes, statistics
showing that each year that ahout 201)
vessels are wrecked on the adjacent
coasts.
The course of the canal lies in the direction south liy east, extending from
the town of Kiel, on the BalMc coast,
to a few miles below Hamburg, on the
Ellie. The work of excavation was begun on June 3, 1887, and has heen
pushed with energy. The estimated
total cost of $37,440,000 will probably
not lie exceeded,
More than 8,600 men were employed
on this new canal during the summer
months | in winter the number was reduced to about 4,700.
Of fascinating interest are the bridge
constructions. These are veritable
marvels of modern bridge construction.
Two stationary aud five turning bridges
have been built across the canal, and,
besides these, there are 18 ferries, to
accommodate traffic north and south.
Both the luidges represent single
spans, respectively 150 and 158 metres
in length.
