Death of Sir Wm. A. Smith
Founder of Boys' Brigade
We announce with deep regret bbe
dentb or Hir William A. Smith, founder and secretary ol the Hoys' Brigade, winch occurred suddenly in London yesterday morning. Hir William
arrived in London from Glasgow on
Wednesday evening, and was present
at the annual demonstration of the
Hoys' Brigade at the Royal Albert
Hall on Thursday, which was presided over by Prince Alexander of Teck,
On Friday he appeared to be in bis
usual health. While attending tbe
meeting of the Brigade Executive he
was taken suddenly Ul, and gradually became unconscious. He was Immediately attended to by Dr. A, E.
Moris-m, of Sunderland, a member of
the Executive, ami was subsequently
conveyed to St. Bartholomew's Hospital, which is within a few hundred
yarda of the Brigade Office. Br, Gar-
roil and Dr. James Calvert and the
staff of the hospital were unremitting in their attentions, Sir William, however, did not regain consciousness, antl passed away at half-
past Bix yesterday morning, the cause
of death being hemorrhage on the
brain. He wns in his 60th year. His
two sons wero present during his ill
ness. The elder of hia sons, Mr.
George Stanley Smith, was recently
appointed assistant secretary of the
Brigade. The funeral will take place
in Glasgow, and it is proposed to
hold memorial service in London.
In several churches in Glasgow yes
terday reflsrence wns made to the
splendid work accomplished by Sir
William, and at the annual church
parade of the Brigade, which tot*.,
place in the afternoon, the announcement of his death was received with
profound regret.
"One of the most profitable servants of bis own generation and of
the generations that are to follow,"
was the tribute paid to the founder
of the Boys' Brigade by Principal
George Adam Smith. It is an entirely just tribute. Tbe Boys' Brigade
Is one of the most remarkable movements of these times, and will remain an enduring monument to Sir
William Smith, a tangible revelation
of uncommon power of vision combined with extraordinary practical
capacity. It is an agency of worldwide scope, the model of many similar organizations, and has inspired
generations of boys with a high ideal
of service. Its influence on thc life of
the community can scarcely be estimated.
It was singularly appropriate that
Sir William Smith Bhould find bis
lifewark in the fashioning of the
Boys' Brigade. He came of a family
of soldiers, and while tbe brigade
does not in the combative sense foster the spirit of militarism it is based on discipline. His grandfather
was an officer in the 78th Highlanders, aud served under Wellington, ami
his father held a commission in the
7th Dragoon Guards. Retired from
tbe Army, he continued active, finding outlet for his energies lu the Artillery Corps formed at Thurso, ol
which he was major. He was a nut-
able man in his dny, and Major
Smith of Pcnnyland was known
throughout        Caithness.       William
Smith was horn at Pcnnyland on Oetober 27, 1854, nnd retained vivid
memories of bis early days on tbe
shores of the Pentland Firth and of
the Pentland storms. Ono of these
made an indelible impression on his
memory. It caused tbe wreck of a
vessel, tbo Henry Pochard, the crew
Of which were fortunately saved, and
received entertainment in Pentland.
Out of gratitude thoy presented to
his father tbe figure-head of the ship,
which for long adorned tbo gable of
tlio old bouse. In those days hoys
did not linger at home, and when 14
years of age Smith left Thurso for
Glasgow. Reared in a military atmosphere, he caught at an early age
the martial spirit, and while still at
school he formed a youthful corps,
who were drilled by the sergeant of
the local artillery, a boyish exploit
in which one may see an adumbration
of the greater movement with which
his memory will be always associated. Arriving in Glasgow, be entered
the office of his uncle, and alter his
apprenticeship started business on his
own account as a shipping agent,
having as partner Mr. James 0.
Findlay, who afterwards became manager of the Irawaddy Flotilla Company, Rangoon. But while he
mui tied in business until long after
the formation of the Boys' Brigade it
is as the founder of that remarkable
organisation that he is chiefly known
Like other great movements it had'
a modest inception. Possessed of a
deep religious sentiment, young
Smith on his arrival in Glasgow became actively associated with Christian work. In the year 1880 he was
secretary of the Sunday school in
connection with the College Free
Church Mission. He was also a
teacher in the school, and while entering heartily into the work he was
oppressed by the difficulty of maintaining a hold of boys after they had
passed out of the influence of the Sunday school. A remark dropped by
the Rev. Dr. Reith, minister of the
College Church, that there was in
the character of everyone a side that
could be reached, set the young
school teacher thinking. It also recalled the boyish achievement in Pen-
nyland when he formed the schoolboys' corps. The idea came to him
that boys might be reached on the
"military side," and with Smith to
think was to act. At that time he
was a member of the 1st Lanarkshire
Rifle Volunteers, and bad learned the
value of discipline. He determined to
put his idea into action, and took into bis confidence two friends, Mr. J.
R. Hill and Mr. J. B. HIU, who in
after years took orders in the Church
of England. The result of their deliberations was the formation of a
company of boya attending the mission school in North Woodaide Road.
It was called the "Boys' Brigade,"
its symbol a hlueish crest with the
words, "Sure and Steadfast," and
the formula, now familiar throughout
the world, "The establishment of
Christ's Kingdom among boys, and
the promotion of habits of obedience,
reverence, discipline, Belf-respcct, and
all that tends to true Christian inan-

Collides in the St. Lawrence River
off Father Point
Special Wires to "The Prospector"
Friday, 10 a. m.
Quebec, Muy 29.—Eight hundred
lives are believed to bave bean lost
when the C. P, R. liner Empress of
Ireland was in a collision at 2.30 tbis
morning with the collier Htorstad off
Father Point during a dense fog. She
sank ten minutes after tho collision.
Tbe tlrst news was received in a
"S. O. S." call to Father Point and
it was known that the vessel could
uot bc far from Rimouski ns she only
left Quebec yesterday afternoon.
Out of several hundred souls on
board many were westerners, including several Wtnnipeggers,
The disaster will rank with the
most terrible stories of the sea, both
in the matter of its suddenness and
in the number of victims.
The list of the latter is not yet
known but thfe passenger list Included Laurence Irving, the English act
or, who recently finished a tour of
Canada with bis London theatrical
The Empress boats are fitted with
special water-tight compartments ami
tha impact'of the collision must have
been of terrible force to bring the
end so suddenly. In fact, it is suggested tbat thc vessel must have
been practically cut in two.
The collier Htorstad also appears
to have sunk but nothing is known of
the number of her crew.
Immediately on receipt of the "S.
O. S." signals the S. S- Eureka and
the mail tender Lady Evelyn from
Father Point hurried to tbe rescue.
Early news of tbe disaster, was of
th* most meagre description, being
barely more than the "S. O. S.
call, name of the ship aud fear of
immediate sinking. The absense of
further wireless calls Is now explained by the fact that the vessel sank
almost at once.

Country she carried a crew and officers of 2% persons. Not a .soul reached this country; she went down, and
the only mark of Identification that
was left was wreckage washed upon
the shore and several of the bodies.
It was given out by the'builders
that two or even three compartments
could be damaged and it would not
make any material difference to the
stability of the ship. She was, however, lost.

We have still in our minds thc awful catastrophe that happened to the

made the whole civilized world wleep

pride exhibited iu overcoming the

Must man forever be brought face

Must we forever fare scenes of death
utuL sutlei ing time and again? Must
it always tie necessary to view th'
horrors before we realise that, man
iH Mill only human? Wc,acclaim tbe
glories of our handiwork, we look
with pride on the difficulties we solve
iu combating wltb the elements. In
some respects we almost sing the
glories of our omnipotence, But when
we nro brought face to face with the
facts how ignorant we are, how amall
and little our effortH; how much must
we lenrn before we can truthfully say
"We know." In the- face of the awful tragedies that havo been brought
to our attention must we forever say
that there is no God, no higher ruler
by whose band WO are guided, and by
whose care and tenderness we are
nurtured. Let the cry go up in all

The Oil craze has a-
gain reached here
Several eager citizens ol Craabrook have faith in the nil hearing
district of the Flathead Valley, and
consider it but a short time before
this district will prove hh popular as
that of Calgary with oil men.
Drilling in the Flathead was commenced Heveral years ago, but no
great depth wns obtained, On the
American side of the international
line the Klntla Lake (nl compnny
have a well down nearly n thousand
feet with strong indication of oil of
a superior quality, and there Ih no
doubt thnt oil will he struck, and
that tbls district will soon bf] In the
Tbe reports of exports made sever
al yeara ago were tn tbo effect that
with tbe upheaval which resulted in
the formation of the Rocky Mountain range, a lake or oil wan spread,
One of these exports Stated that If
Indications of oil were found any
whero from E0 to luo miles from the
base of the mountains, an Investment
would be pretty safe. In support of
this claim, the finding of crude oil on
Sage creek, where Kootenay llrowu
has heen collecting oil from the sur-
fsce of a swamp for the past twenty
years, is a sure indication of oil. The
main chain of the Rotlty Mountains
lying to the eastward of the Flat
head liver, is made up ol slaty and
sandy beds closely reaemh.iug those
seen north ol the Kootenay crossing
in the pa** of Tobacco river. The
transverse   valleys   of   the Akaintna
river, Sage aud Kishneena creeks, foi
low the strike of synclinal folds In
the rocks. In the former, the cliffs
rise on eacb aide of the stream like
walls in particolored masonry, and
are cut back at intervals Into semi
circular hollows which usually con
tain small lakes, This Ifl a section
of country little known, except to
prospectors, and is separated from
the remainder of the district by a
high range of mountains known as
the MacDonald range. The natural
outlet of the valley is down the Flathead riwr [nto .Montana, though
there is a natural pass through the
Galton ranee, which separates the
Kootenay from the Wigwam river.
Another route is from the town of
Corbin down tb1? valley by wagon
road a distance of some forty miles
to Sage creek.
Some years ago attention was call
ed to thiB district by the finding o:
crude oil in the possession of some
Stoney Indians who usually hunted
In this valley, and they were induced
to show some prospectors where they
obtained the oil, which they, the Lilians, were in the habit of using as
a medicine for complaints of all
kinds. The surface indications are
good, and two different qualities of
oil have been obtained. On Kisbnee-
na creek a short distance north of
the international boundary is a black
oil, similar to the Pennsylvania and
Ohio oils, but on Sage and Akimina
creeks some eight or ten miles north,
there Is found nn oil tbat is nearly
puro, and of a doop yellow color,
which will burn in a lamp as it
comes from the ground. Close by
tbere is natural gas escaping from
the bedrock which burns freely upon
ignition. Some of the oil sent to the
geological museum at Ottawa caused
considerable comment, and was pronounced a fraud on account of its
purity. Dr. Selwyn, bead of the department, made a special trip to the
valley, and waa surprised to find the
oil genuine, and also tbat tbls oil
was found in tbe Cambrian forma
tion, which was something unknown,
as all the oil fields hitherto discovered have been iu Trenton limestone,
Directly due east on Sage creek on
the eastern slope of the Rocky Mountains, in Alberta, there are plenty of
surface indications, and the successful
result of boring operations, in which
a large sum of money haa heen expended, proves quite conclusively the
existence of large subterranean oil reservoirs in this locality. On the
American side, near Kintla lake, and
at points on the Flathead river several wells have heen sunk, and oil
obtained, yet all indications point to
the locality in the vicinity of the
anove named creek as being the hest
and most natural place for the tapping of these oil reservoirs, From the
(hiding of all thene indications over
auch a large area, ami in similar formation, we may say that thore is

liness." Tbe little company formed
in October, 18S3, consisted of 3 officers and 24 boys. Thus was started.
in a mission hall in a dim CHasgow
street, a movement destined to spread
over the world. Tbe seed so modestly but so confidently planted fructified; the Brigade grew with amazing
rapidity, and it now claims a membership of 70,000 officers and boys in
tbe United Kingdom, and 120.01MJ,
with 2300 companies and 10,000 officers and staff sergeants throughout
tbe world. Tbe Glasgow Battalion Is
appropriately the largest, consisting
of 158 companies and a membership
of over 8000 officers and boys. But
the brigade is far flung; there are
branches in South Africa, tbe West
Indies, tbe United States and Cnnada, and China and Japan, as well
as in Kngland and throughout Scotland. Its contingent influence is to
be seen in the Church Lads' Brigade
of the Church of England, the Rom
an Catholic Lads' Brigade, and t'ie
Jewish Lads' Brigade-all flourishing
Two years after the formation of
the first Olasgow company the now
well-known uniform was introduced.
The first march out of the little company wns to Oarscube grounds, aud
the first camp was held at Tigbna
bruaich in lSSti. The camp, like the
other agencies of the Brigade, b is
greatly developed, and now tbe annual camp at coast or country is attended hy an average of 14,0011 boya.
During all the years of ita BWift development Sir Wm. Smith waa the
controlling spirit of the Boys' Brigade, while at tbe same time he wna
actively engaged in busineaB. In 1887,
however, tbe Brigade had grown to
auch dimensions that he decided to
abandon his ouaiuess enreer and devote hiniseir entirely to the work of
the great oiganiHatiou he had founded. In that year a headquarters office was established In Olasgow, and
a permanent stall appointed! he becoming Brigade secretary. With his
time now entirely available for service to the Brigade, IiIh activities in-
rreuHed, and frequently he travelled
all over the United Kingdom in connection with the business of the
movement In 180E he visited Canada ns the giieHt of Lord Aberdeen,
who waa then Governor-General of
tin Dominion, and who ia honorary
president of the Brigade. During hia
visit ho Inspected many of tho battalions and companies of the Brigade
in Canada, and two years later be
Visited the United States as tin-
guest of the CoMimnndor In Chief and
Executive of the Boya' Brigade of
America, He waa received at the
White lloiiae by President Roosovolt,
wbo exprcHsed his warm appreciation
of   the work of the Brigade.
In flu- earlier stages ol lhe movo
ment the Boys' Brigade did md es
enpe criticism. It wns opposed by a
few on the ground that it stimulated;
a warlike spirit among the young,
but wltb experience of the inlmlrnhlc'
service   it    was rendering opposition
disappeared. White military in its
discipline, tbo roligioiiH character of
the Brigade has boon rigorously kept
iu view, aud its purpose has always
been primarily to make good citizens. Training in the Boys' Brigade
is recognised aa a aymbol of character, and Lord Roberts, who has seen
the Brigade boys in many lands, has
home testimony to the value of the
training lu making for efficiency in
life. Among boys it haa had a potent Influence, Before tho inception
of the movement Sir Wm. Smith,
witb his keen Insight into tho nature
ot boyhood, saw tbat the average
boy was apt to hold the opinion tbat
to proclaim religion was to be some
thing or a "mollycoddle." Experience of Brigade life quickly disabused
llie hoy mind ■>( that falae Imprea
sion, and prove thai in the service
of Christ there was room for tbe no
bleat   manliness and heroism.
As  indtcatsd,    the founder   of    the
Boys' Brigade waa nu early recruil in
the     \ olunteer    movement,      .lotntng
tiie     isi    l.    R     \    as   private
in Ih7.ri, he was promoted corporal a
year latoi, and Ht  the end of   throe
years he received hlH i-onuntaaioti.
When   the   work   of   the   Roys'   Brigade
increased   he resigned from the Vol
luitecis,   but   rejoined,   aud    With    the
ilink of lieutenant   commanded    tin1
mounted infantry detachment of the
Ml   I.    R    V      He  rose to lhe  rank   of
Lieutenant Colonel, and held the V.
p. His services to ihe Brigade could
not fail \.i receive recognition, and
in 1907 a number ol prominent clti
zona moved in the matter. Sir Will
lam Bilsland, who was Lord Provost
of the city, convened a meeting in
the City Chambers, It wns decided
to present a portrait of Sir William
to the Corporation, with a replica
for himself and an address, and an
Influential committee, witb Sir John
Pre Primrose as convener, waa formed. The presentation took place
tbe City Chambers a year later, on
tbe occasion of the celebration of tbe
semi-jubilee of the Brigade. The function took tbe form of a reception to
the Council of the Brigade, and tbe
portrait was unveiled by Sir Archi-
bald M'Innes Shaw, the Lord Provost. The semi-jubilee of the Brigade which took place that year, was
a particularly notable affair. Held
on Saturday, September 5, the day
following the reception in the City
Chambers, there was a parade of 10,
000 hoys, drawn from all parts of the
United Kingdom, under the command
of Sir William. The Brigade was reviewed by His Royal Highness Prince
Arthur of Connaught. On the follow-
ing Monday Sir William was the recipient of another portrait from past
and present members of tbe Brigade,
the presentation being made by Lord
Aberdeen. In 1909 the honor of
knighthood wns conferred on the
founder of the Brigade. His Majesty
the King has shown his interest in
tbe movement by graciously continuing its patron, a position he occupied
while Prince of Wales. Tbe royal recognition of the BoyB' Brigade was
notably manifested In 1902, the year
of the coronation of King Edward,
when our present King, then Prince
of Wales, reviewed 12,000 membera of
the Brigade in London. The 1st
Glasgow Compnny, commanded hy
Sir William, led the march past, the
largest review of boyB In the history
of the world.
Sir William Smith was twice married, bis first wife being a daughter
of the late Rev. Audrew Sutherland.
Her Majesty Queen VlctoK a chaplain
at Gibraltar. She died In 1898. In
190tJ be married a daughter of the
late Mr. William Campbell, and a
sister of Mr. I'enree Campbell. She
died iu 1907. He is survived by two
sons by his first wife.
Sir William was nn office-bearer of
College aud Kelvin grove United Free
Church, and bore a prominent part in
all its activities, Hut the BoyB* Brigade absorbed his boat energies. It
Is of melancholy interest that the
annual review of the Glasgow Battalion, which is announced to beheld
on Saturday next, will be the first to
he held without tbe presence of its
founder. Last year tho review of the
brigade took place before Her Royal
Highness Princess Louise. Sir William was necessarily a prominent figure nt these annual functions, and
none wus more popular. The members of the brigade had a real fond*
ness for its founder, and among them
he waa familiarly known as "W. A."
It Is characteristic of the zeal he
brought to the work that he was ln
London in connection with the bust
ness of the brigade, so tbat he may
he said to havo died at the post of
duty. He leaves behind him a record of high Christian service.
On being informed of the death of
Sir William Smith the King aent the
following telegram to Lord Guthrie,
president uf tho Boys' Brigade:
"The King bas learned with much
regret of thc sudden death of Sir
William Smith, whose name will ever
be remembered as the founder and
friend of the Boys' Brigade."

Mr. P. A. O'Farrell Writes of Millions Produced and Millions
To Come
Mines Once in Doubt Are Now Among the Richest
in British Columbia
Rossland, May 20.- Rossland is now
MCUroly entrenched among tbo famous mining cities of tho world. During the nineteen yeara of its existence
It has added $(10,000,000 in gold to
the world's wealth and It ia now pro
duetug some $4,000,000 a year and bo-
fore long it wlll bo a production of
(10,000,000 a year.
In LB9S Patrick Clark of Spokane
began shipping gold and copper ore
trom Ibe War Kagle. lie paid $80,-
000 for it. ami tie had to build a custom house tot thu Dominion Govern
ment nud a wagon road twenty miles
through the wllderneaa to enable him
to ahip his ore over American rail
ways to Tacoma or Helena or Salt
Lake for smelting.   Thore  was not   a
Canadian railway within hundreds of
mites nor waa there a Canadian
smelter in the Dominion.
Two years later Clark sold the War
Kagle to Toronto capitalists for
$800,000, Tbey paid $2,t)oo,»on for another    mine called tbo Centre   Star.
These mines were placed undor the
management not of practical mining
men but of theoretical mining engineers and after eight years' mismanagement tbe Toronto capitalists
having apparently exhausted all the
ore bodies, sold tbe War Kagle and
Centre Star for their debts to Canadian Pacific interests,
The Canadian Pacitic had meanwhile built a railroad through the
Crows Nest Pass to develop the coal
fields of Eaat Kootenay. They had
pushed this railroad through to Rossland and on west towards Yale and
Okanagan and they had bought Trail
smelter and thus could not afford to
see the War Eagle abandoned. Then
James Cronin and Michael Purcell
took charge of the War Eagle for C.
P. R. interests.
Purcell had begun mining as
young man In the coal and iron
mines of Wales. He.bad perfected
his knowledge In the mines of Pennsylvania and in the copper mines of
Butte and In the silvsr-lead mines of
Cour d'Alene. James Cronin had the
same wide extended experience of
mining in Mexico, the United States
and Canada and these two expert and
experienced miners began again the
search for the lost treasures of the
War Eagle.
For ten days Cronin and Purcell
with pick and candle explored every
drift and tunnel and stope. Tin>y
prospected every fault and slip and
ere the ten days were up they had
solved the problem of the ore deposits of tbe Rossland mines. The mine
bad faulted and the rich War, Eagle
bodies were thrown far to the north.
The rest was easy and since 1906
the War Eagle has produced some
112,000,000 in gold and at a profit of
$5,000,000. Today a depth of 2,000
feet or 300 feet below its present
stopes, War Eagle has the biggest
and longest ore chutes ever. War
Eagle is now in a position to make
an annual net profit of $1,500,000 if
the management desirvd to run it to
its full capacity. And thia ia the
mine which the experts and mining
engineers of the Toronto capitalists
declared worthless nine years ago!
The lie Rot has bad a like experience. Col. Topping of Spokane got
lt from the discoverers for $12.50. He
gave the greater part of it away to
a group of Spokane lawyers who financed Ita development. In 1897 It
was sold to Whltaker Wright and tho
London & (Robe for $5,000,000. The
London capitalists put its manage
ment Into the hands of politicians
and farmers and they landed it ln financial difficulties and then the Canadian Pacitic interests got it for
£50,000. The machinery alone was
worth £50,000. That was less than
three years ago. Since then the Le
Kui has earned a net profit of $fi00,-
000 for Its present owners and will
yet earn millions.
Por a dozen years very little has
been done with the other mines of
Rossland. Le Roi No. 2 has been a
steady small producer and moneymaker, but tbe mismanagement that
took place and the stock market
losses in the War Eagle nnd Le Roi
discouraged capital and left the other mines undeveloped all theBe years.
A new era bas now dawned. There
are tens of mtlltousiof tons of $4, $5
and $6 ore In the Rossland mines
tbat can now, with proper management, be made commercially profitable. The Canadian Pacific controls
the railroads, smelter and the freight
nnd treatment charges can be reduced to $2 a ton where noceasary. In
addition to tho great bodies of high-
grade ore In tho Wnr Kagle and Le
Roi nud other mines there aro Immense low grade <ye bodies and the
pulley of the Canadian Pacific Ls to
supply transportation, power, nnd
amelterlng at the lowest possible
cost to the mines so as to secure tbe
maximum of production. Under these
conditions Rotwland should nfcoorae a
vory   busy   and   prosperous   mining
Though perched on a plateau 3500
feet above the Hen level, Roaalnnd has

Canadian Tacit., euielter plant Is located on the banks o. .he Columbia

down the valley. Tbo gross valuo oi
the ores of copper, gold, silver and
lead uow being shipped to Trail for

year, but with tbe new developments
planned all over British Columbia
and tbe State of Washington will
bring au ore supply of $25,000,000 a
year to tbe Canadian Pacific smelter
at Trail.
Rossland is only one mining district out of a dozen in the Kootenays
that is throbbing with new life and
hope. The Silver King mine, neat-
Nelson, closed down for many years,
has again become a producer and
ought to make a profit of $100,000 in
the current year. The Slocan Star
Company, owning twenty-nine silver-
lead properties, was involved in litigation for a dozen years, but with
the end of litigation have come renewed activities and wonderful rich
development and the Slocan Star is
now forging ahead to a foremost
place among the rich silver-lead producers of the world.
Thc story of George Aylord and
the Slocan Standard at Silverton is
another of the strangest stories ever
told. For seventeen years George
Aylord camped on the shores of Slocan Lake prospecting a silver lead
claim called the "Standard." He had
struck lead or vein in which every
now and then he would find a little
bunch of ore, enough to tempt him
forward, but not -enough to pay expenses.
He built a home and planted an orchard and vegetable garden on a tiny
plateau overlooking the lake and
when mining proved very disappointing he turned to the cultivation of
fruit trees, flowers and vegetables.
And thus he lived for seventeen long
years. He grew the finest apples and
vegetables in the Kootenays, but he
still dreamed of a great fortune
awaiting him in the bosom of those
rugged mountains overlooking the en-
chantlngly lovely lake below.
Mr. John Finch of Spokane, who
helped Patrick Clark to exploit the
War Eagle twenty years ago, was
helping George Aylord all this time
to exploit the Standard. Four years
ago the tunnel on the 300-foot level
broke into a great cavern of rich
bonanza ore and the Standard is now
the richest silver lead mine In tbe
With one crew of miners working
eight hours daily it is making a million a year net and George Aylord
haa retained an interest sufficient to
give him $500,000 a year. Gardener,
orchardist, poultry fancier, prospector and dreamer on the lovely shores
of Slocan Lake for seventeen long
years and in a day realizing a fortune that an Indian Nabob might envy ! Surely that is a story worth
The St, Eugene mine, which was
located in 1893 by a Kootenay Indian, a Corslcan prl*st and James
Cronin, has produced up to date ovor
$12,000,000 In silver and lead. The
Sullivan mine at Fort Steele, which
was exploited by Senator George Turner aud the Guggonhoims and sold
by them for. little or nothing to Canadian Pacific interests ia now producing aliout 400,000 ounces of silver
and noon tons of lead and should be
making a profit of #100,000 a year.
In addition to its immense deposits
of silver-lead ores, the Sullivan hae
still bigger reserves of zinc ores
which are being held till the best
methods for reducing them have heen
decided on. Further west the Gran-
by Company and the C, C. Copper
Company are making new developments in their old mines and opening up new mines elsewhere. The
Uranby has developed a great copper
mine at Hidden Creek, and Its new
smelter on the British Columbia
coast will be a bigger producer of
copper, and a more profitable producer than the old smelter at Oran-
by. The Granby ore only yielded fifteen pounds of copper and a dollar
a ton in gold nnd silver, or about $4
a ton gross. The mining, smelting
and refining und freight cost. $3, lenv-
Ing n very small margin of profit,
But still tho Granby, out of this low
grade oro mnde and paid millions In
dividends, nnd finally secured othor
mines In British Columbia which wtll
enable It to pay bigger dividends and
more of tbem than over.
The British Columbia Copper Company bas been also tike tbe Oranby,
hunting for new mines, and bave
found them, and that company Js also at the dawn of great success and
bigger dividends than ever.
Some time before tbe panic of 1907
George Robertson, one of the ablest
mining engineers America has yet
produced, induced thc Now York firm
of Moore & Schley to finance tbo development of a eopper mine called
Britannia, at Howe Sound, near Vancouver. During tho stress and storm
of that dark financial period Mr.
Schley, out of regard for George
Robertson, held ou to tbis copper
mine. Tbe Britannia is now making
about $1,000,000 a year profit, and it
has only to enlarge its reduction
plant to make a profit of $2,000,000,
or even $8,000,000 a year.
Along tbe coast, Hayden, Stone &
Company of Boston, are financing
the development of a gold depo.it of
perfectly fabulous extent. It is a
mountain of low-grade gold ore.
There is some 500,000,000 tons already prospected and it can bo quarried,
mined and milled at a maximum cost
of 90 cents a ton. Thu ore will protb-
ably average $1.50 to the ton and
when they start they should run 20,-
000 tons a day through the mills. In
other words, thore is nothing to hinder a production nf $10,000,000 a yi.»ar
in gold from the Alaska mine and a
profit of $4,000,000 a year and more.
Doubtless in Alaska, British Columhla and tbo Yukon will yet be found
many such mines.
British Columbia, Alaska and the
Yukon are also immensely rich in
coal and oil. But the oil and coal
resources of these countries have
been hardly scratched as yet. In East
Kootenay in the Flathead Valley, Is
the phenomenal c.ml mine of the
world. It is literally a "Mountain
of Coal," and iB being quarried out
and not mined. Tbe St. Paul people
have projected a railroad from Anaconda to this famous carbon coal in
order to secure cheap coke( for the
Anaconda smelters. Corbin's Mountain can be turned into the best kind
of coke and sold in Anaconda for $G
a ton. The present price of coke at
Anaconda is $8 or $8.50.
The collapse of the land speculation and the phenomenal scarcity of
money for the last two years had a
most beneficent effect on mining and
farming. The real estate agent and
land speculator has been transformed
into a farmer, a stock-raiBer, a prospector,, or a miner and as a result
the output of agricultural products
and of gold and copper will in a little while show a phenomenal increase
throughout British Columbia, Alaska and the entire northwest. In
truth, the collapBe of tty-' land boom
and tbe money stringency will mark
the beginning of a new and better
and more prosperous era than the
Northwest has ever known before.

guarantee at Its back. However,
one cannot sell a guaranteed article
in Bret-class condition to consumers
of poultry produce if It is displayed,
as is often the ense, in windows
where the sun can b.?et directly upon
it. Even if the eggs were infertile, it
would cause rapid evaporation. We
have also seen many eggs in baskets,
or loosely placed on top of ham ami
bacon, and also very near to Ilsh.
There are several rules thst one
should guide themseivoB by before
they stamp their eggB. Details of
this hnve lie™ given in Bulletin No.
55, but something after the following
rules should be strictly ndhored to
hefore the stamp and guarantee are
placed on an egg:
1. Each member should bear in
mini! thnt the aim of the Association
is not ouly to get oetter prices, but
to raise the standard of poultry produce and make the association brand
an absolute assurance of quality. To
accomplish this the following rules
must be carefully adhered to:
2. The poultry house shall he kept
iu a clean and sanitary condition.
8, Fresli nesting material shnll lie
regularly supplied.
4. Only clean, wholesome, untainted food shnll be led to the (owls.
5, All broody hens, am) hens accustomed to roost on or in the nestn
must ho excluded,
ll. All eggs shall be collected twice
7. All eggs shall be removed directly Irom tho nests to u dry, cool
room where the temperature does
not exceed 00 deg. Fahr., and ytheri
there are no apparent odors of any
8. Shut up or otherwise dispose of
all male birds except trom Jan. 1 to
June 15.
9. None but china eggs Bhould be
used ae nest eggs.
10. The members Bhall deliver eggB
from their own hens only,
11. All eggs shall be candled before
being placed in the Association cartons.
12. When eggs arc placed in cartons using the Association seal tbe
following rules for grading must be
strictly adhered to:
(a). Each carton shnll contain
eggs weighing 24 ounces or over, net.
(b), Each carton shall contain
eggs of uniform size.
(c.) Each carton Bhall contain
eggs of uniform color.
(tl). Each carton shall contain
eggs which are perfectly clean.
(e). Under no condition Include
washed eggs.
13. The secretary Bhall notily tli:
inspector ol any complaint, whose
duty it shall be to Investigate.
14. Any member lound guilty ol
violating any of the foregoing shall,
on the first offence, be fined not less
than one dollar, and in case of a
second offence he expelled Irom the
privileges arising from the co-operative work of the Association.
The above rules are not necessarily
the ones that each Association need
havo, but the points brought out In
these rules are things that should oe
carefully considered when selling eggs
which bear your stump or seal.
We had tbe pleasure of discussing
this subject witb one manager wbo is
handling an Association's oggs. He
however, did not think that it waB
the Association s business to place
any strings on the eggs alter tbey
were sold to tbe wholesaler or retailer. However, if we intend to give tho
consumer a good article, we should
make It our business to see that
tbtise eggs are carefully handled after he buys them, and thereby build
up a larger trade lor the certain
brand ol eggs. We should, therelore,
endeavor to advertise the eggs In the
form of a placard for display in tbe
window, and keep the eggs inside,
uway from sun, and from anything
Irom which eggs might take up a disagreeable flavor. We believe that any
retailer or wholesaler would be only
too pleased to use thc placards in
his window to attract the consumer's
eye, rather than place tbe eggs there
and run the chance of having complaints.
Although some people bave never
bad nny trouble in marketing eggs,
we have before us a letter from a
man who hns bcen In the business
for several years and bas just notic
ed a blood-spot In his eggs.
Mnny difficulties will be overcome
by judicious handling after the retailer has them in his store, it the
eggs have been properly candled and
sorted before they are sold to the
Secondly.    We    have   also
ready tliut thiB year will be a very
prolific one lor lice and mites. We aJ-
viuc poultrymen to spray their hous
es at this time thoroughly with a
good disinfectant, nnd to keep their
eyes open [or lice, mites and lleas,

B. C. Estimates Pass
uttawa, May 84,—Much headway
wan made with the government bual-
nesi at tho three sittings of the com-
mom. held on Saturday. During the
morning and afternoon sittings eev
eral govern ment bills were put
through committee nnd given third
readings. The estimates for the department of public works were taken
up and practically all the votes for
public buildings ami harbors and rivers throughout the Dominion were
put through Before the house rose
Approximately (25,000,000 wns voted
during the afternoon nnd evening Bit*
When consideration of tUe act to
amend the Inspection and Bale act
was resumed, Hon. George B. Foster
announced that the intention of the
bill is to Include feeds under the regulations of the present act, the same
as flour.
The minister said that a number of
changes had been made in the weight
of a bushel of certain vegetables in
order thnt a bag would represent a
bushel and a half of any kind ot vegetables. This would mean uniformity of weight throughout the Domin*
Ion ami would prove to bo a great
convenience owing to the growing
interprovincial trade.
He said   that   tbe   bill   had    been
widely distributed   nnd   no objection
to it lind been received.   The bill was
reported and given a third reading.
Discuss Naturalization Bill
The naturalization hill was then
taken up. Dr. D. U. Neely wanted a
definition of the word "adequate" as
applied to the knowledge of English
or French.
Hon. 0, J. Doherty replied that his
own definition would be that an applicant for naturalization should
have a sufficient knowledge to make
himself understood nml to understand himself. He pointed out that
the American law required ability to
read and write in English. This was j
not required. An order-in council
could be passed inter defining the
word "adequate."
Hir Wilfrid Laurier said thousands
of people had been induced to come
to Canada in the beliof that they
would he given the full rights to citizenship and allowed to become own*
ers of land at the end of three years.
Mr. Doherty did not think that nny
hardship would be impos.'d upon
aliens wbo have arrived in Canada
within recent years. They would
have to wait a Httle longer to become citizens but they would get ttie
advantage of wider citizenship,
Dr. Neely failed to net' wliere the
minister of justice had got his idea
that there was a general demand for
this change. There were u few supercilious Canadians who regarded newcomers with a feeling of BU por lor ity,
who would like to see tbe change
made but the majority of the people were not, anxious to bave the
time extended. The three years'
term should be preserved for local
naturalization, he maintained.
H. B. Morphy, North Perth, agreed
with the previous speaker. The longer the probation period, the longer
it would take new arrivals to realize
the privileges of the land of their
Mr. Morphy also objected to the
clause of the bill confining naturalization to those Wltll a knowledge of
English or French.
Hon. H. Lemieux, (Inscribed 'the
measure ns being both liberal and reactionary, it was liberal in privileges and reactionary in extending
the naturalization prohibition from
three to five yenrs.
Wants High Standard.
H. H. Stevens of Vancouver made
a strong plea in favor of the hill, lt
wan not a bit too rigid and its
standard wns not n hit too high, he
said. In fact, it might be a mistake to admit to Canadian citizenship citizens of some of the possessions of the ernwu other thnn self-
governing dominions. He thought
it might hnvi' been better to limit it]
to the self-governing dominions hut
the admission of nil Hrltish subjects
was paying the price of empire and'
he would raise no objection.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier pressed his objection as to the arbitrator? powers
given to the secretary of state, It;
was a revival of the kingly power.
he said, nntl was imeuited to demo- -.
crntic conditions
"It means," be declared "that King1
Louis Coderre can give or refuse nat
tiralisation to nny one lie pleases."
Sir Wilfrid moved the rejection   of'
two subsections   conferring the    discretionary power .in the secretary of
wtate   aud his   motion was   declared
lost on division.
British   Columbia   Votes  Passed
When the bonne Wi-nt into commit
tee of supply, British Columbia eitl
mates amounting to |t,675\000 were
panned ii, less than half at) hour and
practically without, discussion. I inly
one item. $150,000 for n new drill hall
at Victorin. was seriously objected
to. This item wan held over and will
be taken up when the minister ol mi
litlu is in  lhe houso,
\. K. Maclean Lltonglil that Bun
can station was hardly entitled to a
public building worth $40,000, and
naked   what   wan   the   population,
K. ii. Shepherd, Nanalmo, replied
that the population whs nbout 8,000,
and that the building was in a
way to completion.
Hon. Hubert Rogers    pointed
that    the contract did not call
completion    until  .Inn.   I,   1915.
Item was allowed to pass.
Dr. Neely, Humboldt, protested
against the expenditure of nearly
$300,000 for public buildings at Prlnco
Rupert and did not think there was
population to warrant such expenditure. He had been told, he said,
that tbe population was growing
smaller, to which there were cries of
"No, no" from British Columbia
D. D. McKenzie objected to n drill
hall for Prince Rupert, Baying thnt
there was no reason for one and thai
it was but a fanciful idea of the
minister of militia.
When the estimates of public build
ings for Saskatchewan were reached,
Dr. Neely said he thought that th
votes for his province were tno .mall
in amount. For Saskatchewan there
was but $932,000 while Alberta, with
smaller population, got (400,000 more
and British Columbia nearly $1,000,
000 more.
Hon. Robert Rogers said the wcfit
was undoubtedly not getting more
than its share from parliament, but
he was always willing to lend his ear
to applications for nny legitimate expenditure in western Canada, He did
not think*there had been any request
made to him for a public building In
Saskatchewan that was noi provld
ed for In the estimates or that would
not be provided for in the supple
mentary estimates.
The Age of Rubbish
In a so-called humorous publication
is a cartoon representing a woman
standing on the globe and pointing
to the moon, saying to a man in an
aeroplane: "1 want tbat," In a serious British weekly we read; "The
American likes work." In another we
hnd a man described as a "feminist,"
In two serious publications, one English, the other American, we have
series of articles on the marriage
question. Not long ago the State of
Wisconsin passed a law designed to
secure what are called eugenic marriages. Verily this is an age of rubbish, And all the while a noble army
of professedly learned people are telling ns of the dreadful dangers besetting ub on every side, and an equal
ly numerous army Is telling us how
to avoid the evils. All this likewise
is mostly rubbish.
When we pick up Home of tlte out
put of the magazine factories, we
read articles that, if wo did not know
better, would convince us that the
fact that men are men and women

modernity with that of the X-ray nnd

the experiments they suggest had not
been tried over and over again, and
as if history did not teach that nations, which were led to abandon the
Idea thnt the only safe basiH of a social structure was the love of a man
and a woman and the love of both
for their family, Were not "one with
Nineveh and Tyre." Nine tenths of
the rubbishy stuff printed about the
sexes in only the result of tbe pandering by a few clever writers to the
mental laziness of people witb nothing to do.
The stuff printed about the F.nglish
woman or the American woman is
nauseating. The woman who demands the,moon is not typical nf the
women of America any mure than the
creature afflicted with sufiragitis is
typlflbl of the woman of England, We
spoke above of the mental laziness of
people with nothing to do; but the
whole of the modern civilized world
i.s attlicted with the same thinL'. Day
after day dishes of half-baked thought
are served Up and eagerly devoured
as though they were a new Evangel.
The workintrman reads it, and thinks
the whole world is ..it of ^nnt. The

The whole question of imperial federation was fraught, he said, with

recognize that his administration of
the Militia Department has heen a
success. They recognize nlso that,

they are doing their best, for political purposes it would appear, to discredit his work by criticising expense. So far they have failed for

At th'i age of seventeen Colonel
Hughes served in the Fenian Raid,

personal offers of colonial military
assistance to the Umpire in Imperial

Stories are told of the amazing cu*
dumnoj of the Minister of Militia,
who Is now on tbe shady side of sixty. Last summer, in Sewell Camp,

applause ot the listeners.
Dr. King was next called upon to

to these some good advice that

from the graduates Dr. King said
tbat he would like to say a little
about the St. Eugene Hospital
wherein these graduates were trained. The institution was founded
some 16 or 17 years ago. Since that

it means, he had confirmed the tig-

found tbat through tbe hospital there

Tbe magnificent work ol the Sisters
of the Hoapltal was such that as a
medical man and also as n citizen ol
Cranbrook he wanted to voice a word
of commendation as to the care in
which the hospital was looked after
and for the work done. If the graduates give the game care and patience
in tho future they will be rewarded.

Dr. J. II. King then presented the
graduates witli their dlplumas which
formed u pleasing ceremony.
Dr. F. W. (Jitien boforo presenting
the medals said that there wero
somewhere about 3,000 passed away
every year from typhoid and 12,000
with tuberculosis. Tlio lact necessitated a groat, amount ot study uud
cure as graduates and also as doctors. "Whon we consider the ways ot
those times, now years gone by, wc
say that they wero very ignorant In
their knowledge of some important
tacts of the work. Just so will the
future generations look hack on us
and pass the same remarks. We are

where tbe women's work is hest utilized and with prolit. The fact that

"In the graduates now with ub we
have reason to be proud of the work
being carried on by the St. Eugene
Training School, the results ol which
will be lelt in thc Iuture wort: lor the
care ot the sick."
Dr. Green then presented the med-
alB to the' graduates.
Rev. J. Welch of Vancouver in opening his address said he thought
that he was the only one who had
travelled over two days especially to
attend this pleasing function. "When
I first came to Cranhrook there was
only one house here. Dr. King tonight is all dressed up, a good coat,
clean shirt—much different to when I
first met him some 16 years ago. It
was in tH.' early construction days at
a place they called at that\ time Goat
River CrosBin, near to the Kootenay
Landing, doing pioneer work. He was
attending some typhoid patients and
In the exercise of his duties waB
showing his good and kind heart. In
that camp there was one bed—thc
doctor had it. I was cold through
and chilled to the bone with riding
horse batiijyid the doctor offered me
half of his bed.
"Those days were interesting, very
little habitation, no proper accommodation wherein to place the sick
and take proper care of them. Messrs.
Halley, Fellows and Armstrong saw
the need of some permanent place
and Mr. Halley offered to get the C.
P. R. to build a hospital II the Sisters would look after it and take it
under .their control. You can reBt assured the offer was cheerfully taken
up and the hospital was begun. It
was the outcome of Christian chart
ty; when Christ came he taught compassion to the sick. The first hospital ever built was built in Rome in
the year 400 by g good lady. ThUB
began tho building of hospitals that
eventually covered the land ol Italy,
Frauce, Germany and over to England. In thiB latter place they de
generated lor a considerable period,
being almost no good. This was tho
work of that rapacious Henry VIII
Aftor his timo they were again built
up and today the London hospitals
are enrrying on a work thc magnitude ol which cannot lie estimated.
Thoy rank the finest In the world.
"I wish to bear public testimony
to tlic magnificent work done by the
Misters. Wo know by our reading that
thoy began hospital work in Montreal In the year 1646. At present there
are S7 hospitals in Canada and 400
in the United States. He noticed
trom the program that the motto of
the graduates was 'For God and Humanity.' Their mission was to carry Into the homes of tho poor the
experience and knowledge obtained at
the hospitals with a spirit of charity
in their comforting of the sick; for
humanity they will lahor as well as
for God. 'Whatever you do to them
the least of my brethren, you do It
also to me.' "
Mr. Geo. Stevenson then Bang a
solo entitled "Hybrias the Cretan,"
In his usual excellent style, and for
an encore, "Just A Song at Twilight."
The orchestra closed the excellent
program with "Vesuvius."

Oil in the_Flathead
Considerable interest is being exhibited locally by the selling ot shares
in the Flathead Petroleum Company,
a company having its head oflices in
Spokane, Wash. The capital stock ot
this company is $50,000 and shares
are now selling at 10c each. It can
safely be said that this company
holds the choice oil grounds in the
whole of the Flathead district containing some 10,!)80 acres.
In addition to the above company
there are two others who have entered the field who propose drilling
for oil, I. e., the Royal Canadian Oil
Company, who expect to resume, woi*;
on the Akamina Brook some tlm
next month, its drilling rig being in
place and ready lor a start, and the
Peerless Oil Company of Vancouver
which proposes to begin work next
month. Another company will oper
ato on the Kishenehna. The Sage
Creek Oil Company of Kamloops will
also make a start. OU has beea
found north, Bouth and east of the
Flathead, though not yet proved in
paying quantities.
Ralph Arnold, who is considered
one of the highest authorities on oil
on the continent, is to begin his in
vestigatlon of,the section, and future
development will largely depend
his report. Tho discovery of oil at
Black Diamond, Alta., is stimulating
a desire to prospect the BritlBh Columbia side ol the divide whoro admittedly favorable prospects are obtainable.
Arrangements arc being male by
British capital to put down several
wells to test thc possibilities of tlu
Fraser Valley for oil. Several California oil men are looking into the
possibilities ot drilling lor oil in the
Fraser Valley.
The Ocean Theatre
The ocean theatre has come at
last. Wlmt will probably he known
in ocean theatrical circles as the
"Cunard Ilrst night" will be a memorable event on thc mniden voyage
of the Aquitanla next May.
A stage is being erected in the
first-class lounge, and it will he so
constructed as to be suitable not only for concerts but for dramatic
pieces of the light drawing-room or
curtain-raiser type. Hcencry will be
provided, and there will bc a green
room and special dressing rooms for
tbe artistes.
Two other surprises on this Cun-
arder are an art gallery and what
may fairly be called a museum. The
official descriptions which the Cun
ard Company ia about to distribute
to the world state that the ocean
traveller may stroll through the art
or Long Gallery as it will be termed, and study at his leisure its beautiful pictures and objets d'art. "Museums, picture-galleries, historic castles and other buildings in tho United Kingdom and Kurope have opened
their doors, and thetr treasures have
yielded Inspiration for tho adornment
of this mighty ship," A "Dally
News'" representative was assured by
a Cunard official who had just returned from en exploration of the
Aquitanla nt Clydebank that this description is no exaggeration. Thc
Long Gallery is the particular gem of
the vessel.   Many of the features ar.'
copied trom the famous Long Gallery
at Kuolo, Lord Backvillo's seat at
Bevenoaks, Kent, and then! is a
touch of Christopher Wren and tho
Kensington Orangery about the
whole construction.
For the flrst time an Atlantic liner is to havo precious exhibits of
china, lacework, old prints of historic Interest and all manner of objets
d'art which will adorn tbe Long Gallery, Part of the history of English
shipping will be writ large on tbo
walls. Particularly appropriate will
ho the old prints of English seaports
in tho early pnrt of the eighteenth
century, such as Liverpool, the birthplace of transatlantic steam navigation; Doptford, whore the "goodlio
shippos" of tho sixteenth and seventeenth centuries were built; Greenwich, with its Roynl Hospital for
Seamen j Plymouth, one of whose in-
dissoluble links with the new world
Ih the Mayflower; Bristol, the home
of Sebastian Oabot and of William
iVnn's father; Harwich, which witnessed tho stirring scenes of the
Dutch wans.
The more personal side of eighteenth century history will he represented by the admirable series tif engraved portraits, siirli as that of
Prince William Henry, third Bon of
George HI, who visited New York In
1781-82; tbat of Nelson, and those of
Handel, Samuel Poo to, David Gar-
rick, Johu Kemble, and ISdmund
There will be a quaint old harbor's
Hhop on board reminiscent of Dean
Nash and the gay Georgian days of
Puffs and powders. The outside of
the shop will he an exact model of
an old English hairdresser's, hut this
pleasing illusion will he shattered
when the traveller enters and sees all
the modern paraphernalia of the hairdresser's art.—Liverpool Daily News

icoramend that letters ami other

l were that the word "Alberta"
was not too long to be used in full,
that it is significant, and may ho a
mark of great vnlue in marketing tho

informed clerical organ, states that
the foreign protests may now hv considered a closed incident, as the Government will not enter into futther
discussion of the matter.
Thousands of Americans domiciled

the Kaiser's military establishment.
Victoria Day
How long will it he before tbe orig
inal signiticance of Victoria Day is
lost sight of? How many persons at
the expiration of ten or twelvo years
from now will remember that it is a
day set apart in commemoration of
the great and good Queen, whose loug
life came to a close thirteen years
ago last January? And bow many
will he able to tell why it was that
it was deemed desirable that her
memory should thus be preserved?
Perhaps it may be well on thin anniversary as it comes round to remind
ourselves and tbo younger generation
of Canadians, why tbe name of Victoria meant so much for us.
When away back in 1837, Victoria,
a mare girl, was called upon to assume the dignity aud responsibility
attaching to the sovereignty of tbe
United Kingdom, the Crown was not
held in very high esteem by the people of the British Isles. George III
had uot very long been dead, and
except in respect to his domestic virtues, there had beeu little about him
to commend the kingship to such a
people as tho English were in those
days. George IV. added nothing tt
the prestige of the office. He was no
doubt "the first gentleman in Europe," but when tbat was said, al!
was said. William IV. was as near
a nonentity as any one in his position could vary well be. But In the
yenrs during which these sovereign*
reigned, Britain had produced some
of its greatest men, and under their
leadership wonderful strides had been
made in the democratization of the
Govornmont. Hmall wonder was it
that people began to ask themselves
If a sovereign were really needed.
There is no doubt at all tbnt the
youth and virtue of the young girl
upon whom the burden of state bad
(alien, appealed to tho chivalry of the
British people, the very groat major!
ty of whom were unwilling to render
her position more difficult. She wub
endowed with much common sense
sho was inspired hy a strong roll
gious sentiment, fur from bigotry;
she was resolute without being ag
grCBSlve; she was animated by a high
sense of duty; sho wuh extremely for-
tiinato In having good advisers
Looking back over llie history of the
Nineteenth Century, one might 1
just Hied in thinking that It wns i
the Providence of God that tbo
Crown descended upon her fair nnd
youthful bend. Tbe British Constl
tutlon, which Is the expressed will of
the people, needed sn opportunity to
adjust itself to the now conditions
arising out of the triumphs of dfflii
cracy in America ami Ifiuropo and the
conditions    left aa a U'gary   by   the
Napoleonic wars,
With added years Her Majesty gain-
oil wind.mu. and while always mindful
of the limitations of constitutional
government, never hesitated to make
her own views known to those who
administered affairs in her name, and
thoy wero views matured by an active mind, which worked fearlessly
and with » perfect singleness of purpose in all things relating to the national welfare, She possessed qualities of statesmanship in a high degree, and it is iliflirult to sot a limit
to the etTect of her influence in mak-
ng the Empire what Tennyson described as a "ci'iiwued democracy."
In Mt social relations, us a wife,
a mothor, and as one who was in a
position to give society its tone,
Victoria was beyond all praise. She
acted as a brake, anl a very necessary brake, upon tho speed with
which English society wns iliscendlng
from the somewhat Puritanical plane
upon which It hnd stood during tho
(eighteenth Century. Wi! are nol nn
mindful of the fact ihnt perhaps tbo
less said the better concerning ibe
practices of some of tbe social lend
rs in tiie days when Charles .lames
Fox and bis contemporaries observed
no laws In social matters oth'-i than
those which suited their fancy; but
the groat body of the English people
remained for a long time under the
Spell of the WOSfiyail revival, nud  ro
ligion meant very much for the mas
sos. The Fourth George bad no mor
als worth spotting td, but he hai
many imitators. The descent to
Averaus Is always easy, but tho Influence and example of Victoria stayed it. Especially was tbis true of tho
great middle class, which, after all,
is England.
As the years crowned the beloved
Queen with honor she received a sort
of apotheosis. The Romans were accustomed to deify their emperors after their death. Tho British people
Idealized Victoria during her life.
She came to stand for the principle
if kingship. She bjcamo a proof that
'the king can do no wrong." Beyond all doubt sho saved the British
monarchy, and in saving thai u\nde a
British Empire possible in fact as
well as in name.
Whnt we commemorate in Victoria
Day is a tradition, hut, unlike most
traditions, it Ib rooted in truth.—
Blessed are the Meek
This is not Intended as a religions
article. A few nights ago Sir Richard McBride made a Bpeocb, in the
course of which he spoke of the great
resources of British Columbia, men
tinning in particular its potential
agricultural wealth. He did not men
tion its potential farmers, and tho
reason doubtless was thnt wc have
none. A good deal of good white
paper has been employed, and a good
deal of wholesome air has boon heated by protestations against a Government policy that is alleged to
having locked up the land in the
hands of speculators, by which we
are to understand people who aro
not themselves going to engage iu
farming; but is it not tho simple
truth thnt no oue else iu British Columbia, except it be "tho heathen in
his blindness," who wants any of our
unimproved land for any other pur
pose than to sell it to some one else'
They may bo a few exceptions, bul
thoy ai'o about as senrco as good foil,
wore In Sodom and Gomorrah. Let
us face tho plain truth. It may hi
unpalatable, but it rannot he got rid
of hy shirking it.
The grandfathers of the present
generation of Canadian* would have
jumped at the chance of getting vn
cant Crown lands in this Province
imA.'r the terms of our pre-emption
law, and the grnndmothors would
have gladly gone with them ami lived on it. There were plenty of people who, iu the days wben grandfatb
er and grandmother were young,
thought themselves too good, or toil
delicate, or too something, to put
up with tho privations of pioneer life
but their descendants have not Inherited the earth, st least not s I
that you will particularly notice It.
Perhaps you have caught the Idea,
Who are going to "inherit the earth"
of British Columbia and a good denl
of the rest of Canada, aud thereby he
"blessed"? If you seo an Immigrant
ship coming into an Eastern port,
you will get some idea. We who live
out hero on the Pacific Const will
get a better idea whon immigrant!
begin to come to our ports from Europe by wny of the panma Canal.
Orientals would do it, if we would

meek will inherit tho earth in Can
