tors eiinio from Germany and settled
In MassachUBOttB and Vermont before
(he revolution. On his mother's side
bo came from Dutch-English stock.
Tho father of George Westlnghouse
was a mechanical engineer and an
Invenloi- of various mechanical appliances. In I860 bo removed lo
Btheuecliidy, N.Y., where bo established the Schenectady Agricultural
Works.    Young  George  received  bis
early education in tho public schools
of Central Bridge and Schenectady
and seemed to havo inherited from
his father nol. only lovo for mechanical BClence, but also Inventive ability.
Jlo spent a great deal ot his time in
bis faiher's factory nnd became thoroughly familiar with machinery and
ito mechanical principles upon which
Ihey were based. He was only fifteen
years old when he made liis first Invention, a rotary engine, which be afterwards perfected.
As a _-ourtg man ho became interested in military matters and ho became a member of tho Twelfth Regiment of tho New York National
Guard. When the Civil War began he.
enlisted and served in tlie Sixteenth
New York Cavalry from June 1863 until November, 1864, when ho became
an assistant engineer in tlie navy,
serving on the Muscota and later in
tho Potomac fleet. After the cloBe ot
the war be returned to Schenectady
and entered Onion College for a classical course.
Immediately after bis return from
tbo war young Westlnghouse took up
Ms mechanical work and studies and
!n the same year invented a device
for placing derailed railroad cars
upon the track. He remained in college only to his Sophomore year and
devoted himself entirely to his work
in the machine shop. Ho was only
twenty years of ago when he invented tbe air brake. Going to Troy one
day, a delay, caused by a collision
between two freight trains, suggested
to Mr. Westlnghouse the idea that a
brako under tbo control of the engineer might havo prevented the accident.
In his first experiments, he attempted to use -steam for working tho
brakes, but the plan was not feasible, as experience showed. An article on tho employment of compressed ah- in drilling the Mont Oenls tunnel suggested to Westlnghouse to try
compressed air Instead of steam In
evolving tbe Westlnghouse air brake
in Its original form. The first patent
on bis invention wns issued April 13,
18ii9, and in tho following year the
Westlnghouse Air Brake Company
was organized. Tho inventor found
it very difficult at lirst to introduce
Ms invention. Tho railroads liad little confidence in the possibility of
stopping a train with "wind." West-
ingliouse among other rallroatf magnates approached Commodore Van-
derbllt, but the latter broke off the
interview by saying "I have uo time
to waste with fools."
Young Westinghcusc did nol. lose
his courage, however, aud at last
succeeded in obtaining Ibo consent
of the superintendent of tlio Steuben-
\illc. division of the Panhandle railroad to test iho air brake on a train
nf ears. The trial look place In October, lSCf,, and proved a brilliant
Success. in fact, the air brakes
proved Iho means of preventing a
serious collision during the test. After lhat Mr. Westlnghouse bad no difficulty in obtaining hearings from
railroad officials, and In a few years
his air brake was introduced by the
railroads throughout the country.
Mr. Westinghouso continued to improve bis brake, aud also made other
inventions in railway signals, steam
and gas engines, steam turbines, and
electrical machinery. Ho was tho
pioneer in introducing alternating
current machinery in America, which
made possible tlie electrical transmission of water power. He established large works in the United
States, England, Prance and Germany
for tlie manufacture of air brakes and
electrical machinery, and became the
head of corporations representing a
capitalization of more than $100,000,-
000 and giving employment to moro
than 2:1,000 men. ln recognition of
his eminent services to science and
industries, foreign governments conferred decorations upon him, scientific societies made him honorary member, and Cnlon College conferred upon blm tbo honorary degree of _ h.D.
In August, 1867, he married Marguerite Krshine Walker ir. Brooklyn, who
lurvlve.s him, together with their only
ton, George Westlnghouse, jr.

Hindus in B.itisii Columbia with the
exclusion of tbelr womankind, lends
point to tlu warning.
The notice Is given through Hie repetition of u circular received from
the colonial office. Thia circular
slates iimi whilo the registrar ot marriages has no power, according to
British  biWB,  lo pervenl.  such  mixed
marriages, ere should he taken to

Scheme  for  International  Control  lo
Be Settled  in    ur.
Delegates from England, France,
Holland, Germany, Denmark", Sweden,
KiiBsIa and Norway will meet June IT
next lo decide the status of Spitsbergen, those Arctic islands famous for
the point of departure for many Arctic expeditions.
The congress Is due to an invitation
ot the Norwegian government made
five years ago. Tho powers which
will be represented at Chrlstlanla
next June are those which in the lirst
instance signified llieir willingness lo
accept the Norwegian invitation.
American participation Is justified ou
the ground of tho important coal mining interests in American bands.
Tlicre are also four British couv
panies engaged in the coal Industry,
which is the chief mineral exploited.
The    Germans possess an excellent
meteorological  and    wireless    tele
graph station.
The problem of policing the islands
has long been a pressing one, and
this question has naturally formed
tbe chief concern of tbo tbree Northern Powers, Norway, Sweden and
Russia, Who, by virtue ot their spe
ial interests, havo agreed to submit
to the general conference a draft con
vcntlon based upon a memorandum
by the Norwegian government. By
this agreement���if tlie original text
is confirmed at tlie preliminary meeting on June 4���Spitzbergen is to be
declared neutral territory open to all
nations and under international control. Tho administration is to be in
the hands of a commission composed
of one representative fot each c_ the
three powers. The cost of administration is to be covered by land
taxes and other taxes, which, however, are to bo subject to tho assent
of all the signatory powers. Any deficit is to be charged to al. the powers. It is proposed that the convention shall bo renewable every eigb
teen years.

H. Hasklnt Says the Development of
the Peace River Country Within the
Short Space of Three or Four Years
Hns  Been  Enormous  and  Civilization Is Pushing Northward.
II.   llasklns,  who   visited Victoria,
B.C., recently from Pouoo Coupee, in
ihe Peace river country, gave an account of that district which Is full of
interest.    On  bis way ont to Edson
recently, be met 400 settlers' teams
going in.   Hundreds more will bo going  in  weekly  by  other routes,  via
Leaser Slave lake, and even by Pino
Pass from Fort George.
Mr. Huskies himself has estahllih-
ed a Btoro at Dawson Creek, on the
Ponce Coupee river, which runs into
tlio Peace just lo tho east ot tho dividing lino between I). C. and
Alberta. He Is iu tlio big block surveyed nml held by the Dominion government for settlors, which is being
settled up rapidly. Tho country on
both sides of Iho Poure Coupee river
is prairie to tlio extent of some 200,;
000 acres, and is already a name to
conjure with among tho intending Immigrants from tlto Edmonton side.
Tho climato of Ibis country seems
lo be delightful, both in summer and
winter, and some idea of lhe short duration of snow will be gained from
Uie fact that tho snow waa beginning
lo melt fron. the trail out even on
March 1. This year the snow did not
begin to lie ntil the middle of January. In the cummer, the big brown
mosquito Is thick on human skin and
animal hide for about a month, and
following hlni comes the season of
tbe no-see-uins, but it is by na means
general to wear mosquito bar in the
Pouce Coupee.
Agricultural We Ith
Grain and many varieties of vegetables grow In Ibo utmost profusion,
said Mr. llasklns, and there Ib nn excellent market for everything that
can bo grown. Last season, Mr,
Tromley, a settler, who lias been on
Dawson creek or the last eleven
years, grew'fifteen tons of potatoes,
and then Mr. llasklns had to bring
his supply from lower down the
Peace, at. Dunvegan. Barley, oats,
onions, wheat, turnips���to mention a
few things--all do exceedingly well,
and largo quantities o[ cereals were
grown in the Peace district last season.
The development of this new coun
try within the short space of Circe
or four years lias been enormous, and
the settler who goes In now ia by no
means leaving civilization behind
him. At. Grande Prairie and SaBka-
toon lake are a branch of tbo Bank
of Commerce, a Hour mill, sawmills
and three stores, anil another sawmill is to be established by Mr. Tromley on Dawson creek.
Another town wblcb Mr. Haskins
says is going ahead iB that of Peace
river crossing, where ranches within
one mile of tlio river ar ��� selling for
large sums, and whwe a line hotel
bas been put up.
Transportation Facilities
Three railway companies with four
lines are racing each other into the
very heart of tbis country. Tho Hun-
vegan and Edmonton line now runs
trains to the east end ot the Lesser
Slave Lake, and is surveyed to the
Big Smoky river, where it will send a
branch down to Peace lliver crossing
and another to Grande Prairie and
Dunvegan. Tho Canadian Northern
plans another lino along the north
shore of Lesser Slave Lake, and has
r'-.sbed up from the south to the Me-
Leod river on lis way to Grand Prairie, Pouce Coupee and beyond. Its
surveys havo been extended to Swan
Lake," and must run. Mr. Haskins says
up Dawson ciook, Front the west, the
Pacific Great Eastern is surveyed to
the east, from Pine Pass. All these
railways will be Into this country
three years from now. and its residents believe that huge fortunes
await the man who goes in at once.
Settlers are already proving up on
some homesteads and coming cut.
These men are ready to sell teamr,
machinery and so on, tbougb, of
course, the price in there is not
A   Great  Future
Mr. Haskins believes the country
will have a pr oat future in iis stock,
especially In pigs rattened ou the pea-
viuc which grows so thick it is hard
to force a way through it when on
Prairie chickens and rabbits
abound everywhere. Bears and moose
are numerous, and rood trapping is
done there in the winter. Coyotes
run but never seem to do any harm,
possibly owing lo the plentlfulness of
the rabbit.
Canada seems lo be fully alive lo
ihe possibilities of ibis, her newest
country. Largo stockmen from the
prairies were up looking over miles
of country last summer. Lumbermen
have their eyes upon the lino timber
belts of the bead of the Little Smoky
river and other localities, and Mr.
Haskins considers it would bo a bold
man who would prophesy the number
of peoplo that the end of (he p__ent

Several correspondents, writing
from Canada to the Daily Mail, complain of tho lack ot patriotic energy
on th',- pari of Hie British Him producers, which allows tin- Dominion to

Famous   Winters   in   Paris
In Paris, the comparatively cold
weather with Which Europe has beon
favored during the past winter bus
led to much writing on the siilijeci
of famous winters. Tlie fifteenth century might justly ho called tho cold
century, says the Petit Journal.
'In 1-108 the registrars of tho parliament of Paris reported Unit It was
impossible to issue any of ils resolutions, because, the Ink .roue in th i

Twelve years later, In 1.420, thero was
a repetition of this winter. Pood-
stuffs gave ot.t and poo:- people died
by  tens  of thousands.
"In 1422 iu less than three days the
wino and the vinegar froze in the
cellars; cocks nnd hens bad their
combs frozen; tho streets were full of
people who danced, jumped, wrestled
and ran races, anything to keep off
"In 1430 it froze for ore than two
nnd a half iponths and the snow fell
for 40 days without slopping. All lhe
birds hidden in the trunks of trees
"In 'the year of (lip groat winter,'
as 1.603 was culled, hundreds of persons died from cold; everything was
frozen hard, even tbe broad served nr
the table of Henry IV. In 17011 all
tho wheat was destroyed and a new
sowing had to be made in the spring.
Billion relates that no broad was to
be had, oven Mine, de Maintenon had
to go without it.
"In 1770 sentinels were found frozen  to  death outside  Versailles, and
the kins; put a stop to this service.'
In  Paris  great  bonfires  were  lit  In
tbe streets.    Bells wore    shivered in-i
to pieces as Ihey rang;  clocks slop-1

into ice.    Hares and partridges came
into the towns and bid themselves in

where tbey were subsequently found

Parisian Publication to Bring Understanding of Conditions in
the West
Under lhe title of "La Saskatchewan; Essal do Monographle Provln-
dale Canadienue," r volume ot more
than 100 pages. Illustrated with maps
and reproductions of photographs of
Saskatchewan scene's, has been published in Paris, France, by Louis Gil-
bert, for the purpose of bringing to
the French people accurate knowledge of conditions in Saskatchewan.
The book has been published at tbe
offices of "La Canadlenne," a periodical which is devoted to tlie enlightenment of the French public upon
Canadian affairs.
Information relative to the agricultural resources ot Saskatchewan, to
the wealth of the northern portion of
the province in lumber, is contained
in the volume, and all reliable .recent
statistics. Every phase of the business and social life ot the province
Is dealt with. The handbook contains
j a number of views of Saskatoon and

of lectures on  ihe  native races   f
America    recently    iu    Convocation
llllll.    Th ��� lecture was about the _s-
klmoi, tlie second lowest race in ihe
social scale of Aborigines.
The Esquimaux are a moal unique
nation, an Ar.llc tribe entirely different from ither peoples. Their territory ia about 5,000 miles in length ex-
teiiding from Mt. Ellas to Greenland.
They call themselves, not Esquimaux,
which slgn'.fles, "Eaters of UaW
Meat," but "Innlni:" meaning men.
in common with other primitive peoples they believe that in them is incarnated the very essence of humanity.
In winter .be ice-hut ot this wonderful race may bo found as far north
ns ninety irgrees. On account of
their unique position they like wbat
the white race abhors and vice versa.
ln New Vork with tlio temperature
bdow zero r.n Esquimau girl remarked that she felt rther warm aud was
glad that sho had left iu tho north
her usual fur garments.
The similarity in language of such
a primitive people scattered so -. id*
ly Is remarkable The riming "mult"
which moans the same as Man" ia
Saskatonlan is universal with them.
Where They Are Found
There are three great divisions of
tlie racojtlie west shore of Greenland,
: jpulntion 10,906, and Labrador, 13,-
:".i8, Ihe Alents 0,000 and the Cits 1,-
2ti0, living both In Asia and America.
Iu account of reuinritable difference*
in physical characteristics many
scientists consider them aa not Indians. Their color is brown, feature*
large and Mongolian, with small eyes
and In poring bowl-taped skull.
in habits tbe Esquimau is very playful, honest in ills own tribe, but. an
inveterate thief with strangers. It la
no shame to.- him to steal provided
he isn't discovered.
An interesting description illustrated by tbe Esquimau drawing
was given of the prevailing styles of
dress, The onl\ distinguishing feature between the sexe:.' apparel i;
that the women's garments arc adorned with a long fur tail behind. Her
hair Is rather elaborately dressed
ami tattoo marks about mouth and
eyes accentuate her natural beauty.
How They Live
The Esquimau's means of existence
is hunting, mostly seal, whlcb is tl A
chief economic factor, yielding garments, food and combustibles for light
and cooking. Tbe ingenious method*
of baiting lhe wily animal were explained.
Tho k.ak cr Indian canoe, tlm sum-
i -er essential of tlie Esquimau hunter, is a most, peculiar little craft absolutely unsinkable. In the larg*
bints the .social order is clearly defined, first tbe man who acts as
steersman, the stranger, thu dogs and
finally the women who ply the oars.
The Esquimau, Judges Father Morice,
here shows Limself above tho I_dlan
in liis use of oars and also of sails.
Also bis sleiRh used in winter is superior, bnvl_g runners, n.id his .nan-
ner of hitching the dogs quite different from the ordinary Indian file. A
most interesting, illustrated description was given of tlie Esquimau snow
huls or igloos. The central or living
room is guarded from the elements
by a series or entrances. The peculiar
elevated beds in the northern home
are heated by lamps of soapstoue containing for fuel, blubber with wicks
of moss. A .vl ito \ isitor at first could
hardly bear the cold, but. finally be-
c.iius most uncomfortably warm. Ile
was rather amazed fo find that the
Esquimau manner of adjusting body
temperature was to remove the clothing completely, ibis primitive c istom
not being hampered by any sense of
Contempt for Indian
'.he Esquimau is by nature artistic
and in bone carving far above the
Indian. !Ie considers other people as
brothers, white or brown, but the Indian lie holds in contempt and designates as the offspring of his vermin.
Tho reverend father concluded a
very entertair.ng lecture with a story
of a meeting in 1850 ou the Mackenzie river of a small party of Whit*
men, a bunch of Esquimaux with arrows and fourteen Indians or Children of Lice, armef. with guns. In.
fluenced by the whites those two savage bodies engaged in trade Afterwards the Esquimaux landed an_
wore entertained at a dance. Being
men only of course, the Father said,
ihey did not tango. While tho Whites
were warming themselves at a nearby camp-fire tho treacherous Red-
skina literally massacred the trusting
Esquimaux. Today, however, conditions have greatly Improved.���Saskatoon Star.

A Budget Forecast
For Courtenay City
Courteuay at the  present  time,   pays
Property Taxes about $31000.    In Trade
Licenses   $680,   Saloon   Licenses   $250.
Total, $1030 a  year.   The  Government'
spends about $25011 a year on roads etc.
If we assume that the assessment of
the city will be $700,000, while itisquite
a reasonable figure and not in excess of
what a Government will use for the next'
assessment, a ten mill assessment will
give US $7,000 a year. Ill addition to
this we shall have a large reserve from
the trade and other licenses, a source of
income not usually remembered. It
will be as well to take us an example the
Municipality of Duncans. Duncans is a
flourishing and financially sound municipality. They pay a total tax rate of 16
mills. 9 mills of this is for interest on
money borrowed for improvements,
sewers, roads and tbe like. We may
mention in passing thaqDiincans realizes
n profit o f $3,600 a year from the
municipal water and light over and
above all interest and working expenses.

have been answered through the
Press, on the platform and on the

lily 11   out of   the 20,   then   Uie
ledal is awarded to Euderby and
to the pupil in Euderby who had
he hi fhesl number ol marks.    Al-
hough there might be a pupil at
Trail having more mark., than the
highest pupil .11 Euderby, yet the
lighesl pupil  al  Euderby gets  il
because the number of passes at

not nnlv encourage the pupils  by
offering the medals but we make it
au object to the teachers  in  any
particulai .-(. In ol to try  to secure
the greatest numbci of passes.
Mr. Muir picks out two pupils,
me from Euderby and one from
Trail and says thai we are unfair
because, on ih_ lace ol it, the one
who nets the medal had uot as
many marks as the one who did
not. 'This has beeu explained so
often that it lias got to be an old
story. Mr. Muir understands it
In tlie Public Schools report for
the only year a medal was given to
Trail, you will find that only ONE
pupil passed tlie examination at
Ti ail, whilst SIX passed at EndeD
by. Vou will also find from the
report of the results of the examine
ation that Enderby's best pupil
with 842 marks headed the Province
whilst Trail's best and only pupil
with 6.54 marks ranked 4Sth
These facts prove according to \
the Ministers own statements given I
above that the distribution was I
UNFAIR and that the MINISTER
not I, because Euderby had both i
the best scholar aud the greater \

was given to Trail.

Snobhery In Parliament
(Toronto Star.)
There is a good deal of snobbery
in all this talk about Mr. Asqtiilh's
"motley following." Those wl O
use the phrase have, back in their
minds or hearls a certain cotlt tli| t
for the representatives of the laboring classes; a certain feeling that
they are not as good as the representatives of the capitalist and professional classes; or a certain feeling
that an Irish member is not quite
as good as an English member. No
SUCb objection can hold gco'.
Every elected member has a rigl t
to his place, and any group ot
members has a right to combine in
order to carry out a common programme of legislation,

Progres* at the Depot
Work at the depot is proceeding
satisfactorily, and Contractor
Shields expects to have all the
buildings completed by the 15th of
June. Some delay has been caused
owing to the high tides in the
river preventing them from getting
gravel, but a temporary bridge has
now been built across the river and
all the gravel requited can be got
at any state of the tide, about 250
more loads are required for the
foundation of the 90x42 engine
house. The freight shed is a large
building 100 x 4o and the passenger depot 82 x 31, both are large
enough to handle a large amount
of traffic and are built in the usual
stvle, similar to the thousands of
other C. P, R. depots through the
Dominion. The daily train service will commence July 15 certain.
