Bond of Empire
A ceremony of Imperial significance
took placo yesterday at General-
litiildingB, Aldwych, wben the Lord
Mayor opened tbe club roomB ol the
Overseas Club—"the greatest club in
tbe world," as it bas been describd
by Mr. Andrew Fisher, leader of tbe
Australian Labour Party and former
Premier of the Commonwealth. The
ceremony was attended hy a notable
gathering of public men. They Included Lord Selborne, lately High
Commissioner tor South Africa, Lord
Buxton, tbe new (iovernor (Ji'ii.iral of
Bouth Africa, Lord Meath, Sir
Oeorge Reld, High Commissioner for
Australia, the Hon. Thomas Mackou-
ile, High Commissioner tor New Zealand, Sir T. A. Cughlau, Agent General for New i South Wales, and Lord
Niirthcllfle, founder and president of
the club.
The actual ceremony ol opening
was ol the slightest. The company,
after being received liy the Lord
Mayor, who was wearing his robes of
office, had gathered in one ot the
rooms overlooking the Strand. Then
in one brief sentence the Lord Mayor
expressed the pleasure it gave him
to declare the rooms open. This concluded the ceremony.
The club iB housed on the a.'cond
floor of General-liiilldlngs, Aldwych.
The front rooms face the Strand,
and from the windows may be seen
the rising building which will form
tbe offices of the Australian Commonwealth. Four ample roomB,
which will serve sb reading and
writing rooms, constitute the accommodation, and the whole represents
the headquarters of what has in the
short space of 3J years become a
universal organization with branches
throughout the Empire.
The following are the special objects of the Overseas Club and its
(a) To establish club premises
which shall be available for the use
ot members of the branch or visiting
members of any other recognized
branch possessing a charter granted
by headquarters.
(b) To bring together in the bonds
of fellowship members of the Overseas Club residing in the district.
(c) To extend the hand ot fellowship to members arriving from or
passing through to other parts.
(d) To create and foster an intelligent Interest ln the welfare ol the
British Empire by placing before the
individual a clear idea ol the duties,
responsibilities, and privileges implied hy British citizenship.
(e) To support any kindred societies or movements working on patriotic lines lor tbe wollare ol the British Empire.
(f) To aim at and assist in all
constitutional ways ln maintaining
the prestige ol the British Empire.
The figures ol membership since the
inception ol the club in August, 1910,
show   ln   a remarkable manner   the
growth and extent otjthe movement:
Inception, Aug. 1910    —
February,  1911      Ui.OOO
February, 1912   7.1,000
February, 1913   104,000
Today   over 120,00(1
At the luncheon at the Waldorl Hotel Lord  Northcltfle presided.
Lord Nnrthclltli', tn responding to
the toast, aald:
One Is very grateful to the Lord
Mayor for coming here today, because this Is a very busy week in his
life and his Is a very busy lite. Hut
I was not unite so grateful to him
for bis references to my alleged nm-
iiitlcenre. This club is very largely
sell -supporting, and tbo only thing I
have done Is to guarantee the'rent ol
the premises- a modest £1,200 a year
lor three years. The Overseas Club
haa tbe support of 120,000 poople In
every part of the King's Dominions
and beyond the King's'Dominions, It
Is assisted hy peoplo ol all races and
every shade ot political opinion. It
Is true, as the Lord Mayor satd,
that I havo had tbe great pleasure of
visiting most parts of the Empire,
and one of the excellent lessons a
member of the political party which
I belong learns on his journeyings Is
that enthusiasm for the Empire ts
not tho appanage of one political
party alone. That Is one of tho
rensons why wo have made It nn
adamant rule that politics shall havo
nothing to do with the Overscns
Cluh. During the late elections In
Canada we wero naturally besieged
.by candidates asking for support,
and we declined to give It to either
side. A club llko this can very piihI
lyi affect elections, hut It Is the dominating rule of the Central Commit
too ol this cluh that we should have
nothing to do with politics, and we

Closing of Session
The session whloh has just drawn
tu u close has been miirkeil hy the
passage uf an unusual amount uf
beneficial antl progressive legislation.
The Government haa shown itself a
(iovernment for tin* people, and there
has been passed a long list of measures designed to protect the oublic
and further the best interests of the
The present Oovernment has, [rom
the lirst day it assumed office, particularly looked after the interests of
the farming community. The expenditures on agrlcultuse have almost
doubled since Hon. Martin Burrell
han become Minister, while the Aid
to Agriculture Bill, appropriating
ten million dollars for co-operation
with the provinces in the development of the industry is tht; greatest
advance move ever made by a Canadian Government.
Mr. Burrel, this session, was sponsor (or two measures designed to
protect the interests of both the producer io the country and the city
consumer. One hill was to regulate
cold storage warehouses. This measure gives the Minister power to absolutely control and make regulations
for cold storage companies. The
MiniBter in this way will be able to
regulate combines, which it is alleged have been holding up both producer and consumer. It is a bill
upon which he haa been widely commended by papers ol all political
Another measure which Mr. Burrell
introduced this session was a measure "to regulate the sale and manufacture of dairy products." This
measure also is designed to protect
both producer and consumer, and prevents the adulteration of butter, and
in addition prevents impositions by
buyers upon the farmer.
Hon. C. J. Doherty was responsible for a number of measures of more
than ordinary importance. The new
Naturalization bill, which creates an
Empire citizenship, Ib really one of
the big measures of this session—it
is a long step in advance towards
imperial unity. For years there has
been an agitation for an imperial
citizenship, as at present an alien
naturalized in Canada has had no
rights as a British subject outside
of tbe Dominion. It bas been left
for the present Government to carry
through tbe negotiations with the
Imperial authorities. A similar bill
to that introduced hy Mr, Doherty Is
before the Hritisb Howe, ho that the
law will go Into effect simultaneous
ly. In addition, naturalization is
made more difficult, the time being
lengthened to live years, aud the
scandal of wholesale naturalization' in
the West under the Laurier regime
will be wiped out.
Another important bill fathered by
Mr. Doherty was a measure to mnki'
it a criminal offence to publish la) at
advertisements iu regard to the Hale
(property. TIiIh Ih designed to pro
teet the public from the sale of wildcat real estate. This measure hns
been widely commended.
An Act to Regulate Explosives was
an important measure introduced i.y
Hon. Louis Coderre, designed to protect the public and worklngmen uom
careless handling of explosives, In
recent years there havh bcen sorlnu
accidents from powder explosions,
and this hill puts safeguards ftfollnd
the sale, manufacture and bundling ct
explosives. Tt also arranged for tho
location of factories ln :llst\r*s
where there is no danger to tho public.
Anothor bill providing for iV pin
tectlon of worklngmhn is that Mi:h
wbh Introduced hy Hon. T. W. Oro-
thers, nnd which absolutely forbids
tho use of white phoHphoniB In the
manufacture of inatcheB. Thla is n
measure of groat Importance to all
workingmon In match factories In
Canada, and Is a bill which is greatly appreciated by tho labor Interests.
A bill of Interest particularly to
the West, waa one which linn. George
A report from Blalrmooe ton the
Prospector, received at noon on Friday was to the effect that an explosion had occurred at the Hillcrest
mine. Later in the afternoon, a report by telephone wub to the effect
that, three hundred men were working
in the mine, that Hixt.y had been tak
en from the mine, eight of whom
were dead. A rescue party wan still
trying to get into the mine, which
was un tire.
Rescue parties from Penile, Michel
nnd Hosmer were en route to the
Fernie, IJ. C, Juna 19. (Special to
the prospector, fi.30 p. m.)—Explosion occurred about 9.15. Two hundred and twenty men went into tbe
mine thiB morning. Twenty got out
immediately after the explosion. Up
to the present time about forty have
been brought out dead and it would
appear that there is very little hope
for those left in the mine. The rescue parties are wording hard.
The force of the exploBion was ter
rifle and wrecked the haulage hounc
situated about 100 feet from the
Superintendent Qulgley anil Pit
Bosb Taylor are among those in the
mine at the present time.
Belleview, June 19—Two hundred
men are believed to have been trapped and killed as the result of an explosion in Hillcrest coal mines, at
Hillcrest, near Belleview, on the
Crow's Nest line, at about 9.30 this
About 300 men went to work in the
mine this morning before th» explosion occurred. Not more than fifty
or sixty men escaped, and about 190
were left in the mine and it Ib said
there is no hope for them as the
mine is on fire.
Special relief trains were sent out
from Fernie, Hosmer and Michel. The
specials carried surgeons, nurses and
a large number of mine officials and
workers with a larpe amount of hospital supplies, which reached Hillcrest about noon.
A government rescue car with trained rescue men has left Blairmore for
Hillcrest. The mine has been on fire
for over three hours aud dense clouds
of black smoke are issuing from the
pit mouth.
Official reports from Hillcrest show
that 22!) men were entombed in the
mine. Sixty-five bodies have heen
brought to the surface and a few
of theHO are being reHUscitated, with
but little hope held out (or the others.
Hillcrest, Alta., June 20.—Provincial Inspector of Mines Stirling was
on the train eastward bound wheu
he was informed o( the accident and

ed In connection with the disaster.
A joint meeting of members of the
locals of the U. M. W. A., the district executive, and the officials of
the different coal mining companies
along the Crow's Nest Pass, > was
held here tonight, aud committees appointed (or the purpose o( attending
tn the different matters iu connection
with the burial ot the unfortunate
There is no lack ol assistance being offered by thoroughly trained
men from all'parts of both the provinces of Alberta and British Columbia. Relays are busily engaged in
searching throughout the mines for
bodies. Lethbridge has srnt a ' contingent and a number from Taber
have just arrived.
Owing to the mangled condition of
many of the bodltts recovered, it is
imperative that interment should
take place without delay and'it is
expected there will be at leaRt two
points where interment will take
place, namely, Hillcrest and Blairmore on Sunday next. There are
finite a number of ministers of the
gospel who are doing all they possibly can administering to the bereaved ones.
There are several instances where
practically thc entire male members
of the family were wiped out entirely. There are so many touching ?iad
pathetic instances taking place time
to record all of them iB even beyond
the capacity of the Ublquotous reporter, hut we may mention some of
these that have come to particular
notice. The wl'fe and family of
James Bradshaw are en route from
Montreal to join father and husband
who is now numbered with the dead.
Herbert Haslam is well known along
the Crow's Nest Pass and particularly in football circles. He had been
working in the lamp house until the
day of tne disaster when he was
making his first shift inside the
Supt. Thos. Corkill, who ia also an

gentleman was severing his employ

neighborhood of Nelson where he is
believed  to bave some property.

It is not possible to make further
investigation In the vicinity of room

Toronto, June 18.—A special cable from London today Bays:
The King, accompanied by tbe
Queen, may tour his colonial possessions in the autumn of 1915. If the
plan is carried out their majesties
will start the autumn of next year
and go by way of the east and home
through the Pacific to Vancouver,
thence through Canada.
B. Foster fathered, which provided
for the extension of the power uf tho
| Grain Commission to Eastern Can-
' ada. Hitherto their scope hns beeu
confined to the West. The Western
farmers have complained that much
of the evils of mixing gralu occurred
j lu the East, They declared there was
! little uho to regulate the grain traffic in tho West if this regulation wan
not continued to the Kant. By the
amendment to the Act tho Commission will have control over Eastern
as well in Western elevators, and a
farnter, If he desires, will be able
to secure Government control and Inspection In transportation from his
wheat fields to the Liverpool markets,
Another monsure of particular Interest to thb West wits the amendments to the Dominion Land Acts,
which lighten the burdens on the
Western homesteader, and provide for
greater encouragement of the live
stock Industry.
The Act as It now Standi requires
thnt interest shall he paid on the
unpnid principal in connection with
the pre-emption from the date nf the
! pre-emption entry. This provision
has been found to be unfair to the
settler, nnd the proposed amendments
to tho Act provide that no Interest
I shall he charged ln c.innectlon with
tho pre-emption except on such puy-
imonts on account of thc preemption
which may be in default,—that Is, no
intercut shall be chargeable until
thfl'p years have elapsed from date
of entry, and if the first instalment
Is then paid, as required, no interest shall he charged on thnt instalment, or uu any HiihHpqucnt Instalment, provided that same is pnld
wrt'ii due.
The present Act requires that a
settler holding a purchased homestead entry must erect a house worth
at least 43(10, on tbe purchased homestead Itself. This provision has
heen found to work n hardship lu
many cases, and the amendment in
this respect provides thnt where a
settler Iiiih a purchased homestead
entry within nine miles of tils p t-
ented homestead, ho may reside in
biicIi patented homestead, und may
erect the >:iim limine on the quarter
Nci'tioN upon which he Ih living.

I Two bills of exceeding importance
were put through the House by Hon.
(W. T. White. They weft bills placing
j safeguards and restrictions around
. the formation and operation of
trust and loan companies. The new
tn I Im are designed to prevent fraud
and failure In connection with such
companies. Amendments to the In
Hiiranre Act passed this session have
n similar object fn view, and are a
result of the Investigation held by
the Government Into the failure of
the Union Life Co. Other important
measures of the Hession are the Fisheries Act, and provides (or greater
protection of Canadian ..shorten and
Canadian fishermen; the bill to
amend the Shipping Act, and the bill
to prohibit the export of petroleum.
In addition, the Tariff hill must

placed thc ateel Industry on a Hound
basis without Injuring the Consumer

to the protection of all cIsshph, and
particularly the farmer.

Peace Celebration
We are just in receipt of a circular
outlining the celebration for tbe hundred years of Peace between tlio British Empire and tbe United States,
and, judging by its contents the wurk
of the Centenary Association is taking rapid hold in Canada, Great Britain and the United States.
The general proposals of the committees can be summed up in the following main features:
1. Erection of monuments and other visible memorials.
2. Services of thaiJ.sgiving in th;
.'i. An educational propaganda in
th« schools and universities,
4. Public festivities In certain centres.
There are various BUggostlops inniin
regarding the erection of monuments,
This matter, however, ho* been re
(erred to an International committee.
In,respect to the thanksgiving services to he held in tho churches the
circular goes on to say that "it has
been decided to set aside one Sunday
(or special thanksgiving Borvices in
all the churches o( the British Umpire and the United States. The date
fixed is February 14, 1915. The Treaty of Ghent, though signal ou Christmas eve, 1814, was ratified by tbe
United States, and, therefore, went
into complete operation ou February
17th, 1815, so that February Mth,
1916, will be the nearest Bunday to
the centenary of ratification. It Is
hoped that the services of this day,
including the Sunday School exercises will be devoted to the consideration of the blessings which have
attended the two great nations during the hundred years of pence. Most,
gratifying letters have been received
by tbe executive committee from
leaders in tbe various churches
promising active co-operation in this
feature of the celebration.
The most important feature of tlic
whole celebration will be the educational propaganda, and it will concern the children, lt is a matter for
congratulation that, all the Departments of Education in Canada havo
promised to lend assistance to the
movement. The main proposals and
details are being worked out hy the
Canadian executive and, we understand, will be held in Crnnhrook,
Nelson, New Westminster, Kamloops,
Revelstoke, Vancouver, Vernon, and
Victoria; endeavors are also being
made to bold the same iu Atlin,
Quesnel and Trail.

found some of the dairies. These conditions we have taken out of th1.1 report for this reason1 The time was
when all the dairies were working
along the lines they each thought ht
to carry on their business without
being mado to comply with any city
regulations or bylaws. Now that
the city has drawn up proper bylaws
to govern the conditions under which
they must work, tbe city inspector,
Dr. Rutledge, paid each of them a
visit and made the necessary suggestions for improvement, giving each a
specific time in ivhich to fulfil his re-
guests. Some of the dairies any sending out milk that is unlit for human
consumption and these he has bad
to impress with the fact that unless
the improvements are made within
the time limit given the true condi- j
tions of their dairies will be pub-
lished in the newspapers, giving full !
information of the conditions that |
exist as the inspector finds them. We
trust that each of the dairymen will
fulfill the requirements called for, as
they are reasonable and just, inso- |
much as they are intended to protect j
our health and especially tbe health
of the children. It must be under- j
stood by all those concerned that in ;
making his report Dr. Rutledge has j
no intention of injuring any dairy-
man's business but that he is only '
carrying out his instructions to pro- j
teet the welfare of the citizens at 1
large. Hence his warning with a
time limit to carry our his requests.

In the matter of industry on.* can
but admire the enterprise shown by
several local gentlemen in forming a
company for the purpose of prospecting for oil. With 11. 0. Beattie as
president of the company nnd Messrs. A. K. Leitch and A. 0. Bownesfl
on the directorate of the recently
formed company, known as the Locomotive Oil & (las Co., Ltd., and
Mowing the success they havo all
made of their own business and the
good judgment they exercise before
taking any risks, it is safe to say
that the company under tholr care
will be well taken rare of and the interests of any possible shareholders
be fully protected. We can say in
good  faith,   "Success   to    Crnnbrook
enterprise, we wish yoil well."

The "Prospector" is the lirst paper in Cranbrook-to inform tW- public of the disaster that took place
at Hillcrest yesterday morning. It
is a story which makes tbe heart
rend Itself with sympathy for the bereaved ones left behind and the lov
ed ones gone before. The full, particulars are not by any means to hand
at present but from the late despatches received lust night one can
realise the scenes that would be
enacted iu tbe vicinity of the mines.
Coming so soon after the uewn published of the sinking of the "Kmpress
of Ireland."; coming when th;1 country bas not ly any m^ans recovered
itself from the awful tragedy aud its
accompanying suddenness, this miue
explosion which wipes out in a mo
ment of time Botne 200 or more souls
is. too awful to imagine. Rescue par-
'ties are at present doing their utmost for those entombed within nature's walls, entombed without a
ray of hope of deliverance, and
brought face to face with a must
cruel death.     Well may we ask   the
question, "What is man'"'

The Liberal majority in our Senate
has once more got in the way of a
measure adopted by the House of
Commons. While we do not deny ihe
right of tin. Senate to reject bills
sent up from the House, one would
feet greater respect for the action cf
the former body, if it was not so
palpably partizan. The latest 'xhi
bition of senatorial obstructive icss is
in respect to the petition to th: Srit-
ish Parliament to amend the British
N'orth America Act so as to provide
for an increase in the senatorial te-
presentation in the West. Senator
Bostock, leader of the Liberals in
the Upper House, frankly said that
his reason for seeking to postpone an
increase in the Senate until after the
next general election was that, if it
is permitted now, the Conservatives
would be ahle to secure a majority
in that body, and, if the Liberals
should succeed at the next election,
they would be confronted by a hoe-
tile Senate. Granting that thiB is
true, it is certainly an act ot extreme partisanship to endeavor to
prevent such a thing from happening. The Senate has no right what-
evr to concern itself with the way
the electorate may go at au election.
A non-elective body, it should consider Itself bound to approach every
quest ion from a uon partizan point
of view. Its best friends cannot
claim that it has done so in respect
to the proposed amendment. Mr.
Borden's points against its action
were well taken. He pointed out
thnt appointments to the Senate
have nothing whatever to do with
tbe date of elections; that the proposed address to the British Parliament ih based upon the Census of
1911, and that tbe rejection of the
commons plan is not in keeping with
our constitutional practice and that
no good reasons have been advanced
wby the appointments for the West
should not be made as soon ae the
necessary legislation can be secured
from the British Parliament. It may
be remembered that when the manner
of increasing the senatorial representation of the West was first proposed, we pointed out, in contradistinction to tbe position taken by
some of our rontemporaries, that an
amendment of the British North America Act would be necessary hefore
it could be made.—Colonist.
Dairy Inspection
Your Worship and Councillors of the
City of Crnnhrook
Allow me bo submit a report of the
work done in connection with dairy
inspection nfter May 18th, the time
of my appointment.
I have made a visit to all tbe
dairies in our distrlef, and some of
them several times, and I have made
a test of nl! milk sold 'rom such
I find the dairies in very good condition, with thc exception of one or
two, and I must say since we have
taken up this question of dairy regulation there has been several improvements taken place. They have
all heen thoroughly whitewashed and
the premises thoroughly denned up.
The majority of them are doing
their best to comply witli the bylaw and are mnkliu' arrangements to
handle the milk in bottles; they are
also Installing proper machinery in
the  way of stenm boilers and     vats.
One is more than ever Impressed,
after going ovei the dairies, thatt.be
sealed bottles whon properly iter Ufa-
ed Is the only proper way of handling the milk. In removing the lop of
cans continually from mi" bonne to
the other, It leaven no resistance to
foreign matter ,,i contagious germs.
This mettloA Cannol b'' the proper
way and should he pntvetited if possible.
The by-law stafi's that milk must
not lie transferred (rom one recep-
tacle to another in public places,
lanes or streets, but those using
cans avoid tbis by transferring It in
the houses winch, in my opinion, is
much worse on account "f the danger of contamination in houses from
disease germs.
Mr T. Austin is now building an
up to date -milk dairy with cement
tloor and running, water through It,
also adding a steam boiler and bottles. With these improvements his
dairy will be in first class condition.
Mr.   Prlngle'B    and   Mr,   Atchison's
dnirics are in good condition n"'i are
already handling the mllK in   sealed
bottles ami in  good sanitary   condi
Mf. Jo" Taylor's premises are being Improved to comply with the bylaw's requirements.
On visiting McDonald DrOS., I
found their premises clean and tidy.
They are now K'dnv; to build a new
milk dairy und install a steam boll
er and handle milk in bottles.
Mr. Dnrdgett's promises are In very
good condition regard inr barns and
tbe condition of his rowH. Tbe cowh
have all been tuberculin tested by
Dr. Illsli'v of the Provincial Govern
ment stntT with very rood results, I
believe, and he will no flOUbt hand in
bis report to you when It Is all complete.
fu alt I have mnde twelve visits
to   the   dliferent    dairies and    have
inade several tests of milk with  the
following results:
Butter Fats
Macdonald   Bros  3.7
J.  A.   Pringle   3,5
W.   .1.   Atchison     3.2
Joe Taylor    3.i
T.  Austin    3.0
W.  B.  Bardgett    2.1
The Provincial Milk Act says that
all milk sold must contain 3 J per
cent of milk fats so you can see that
there is some of the milk that is deficient  to  quite  an  extent.
1 am going to continue making
those tests and ascertain if ■ possible
why in some cases the milk is so
During my visits 1] tind there are
several improvements necessary to
be made in the dairies according to
the bylaw requirements and I have
notified the several owners to that
effect. Sufficient time baa heen il
lowed them and I hope they will-ce
they way clear to perfect the ar
rangements to our mutual adv an
tage I have also told them that f
the improvements suggested are not
made I shall be compelled to make
personal reference of them in my next
report and the same will event i-i'ly
be published iu the local newspapers.

Shepherd of the Hills
From Shakespeare to Harold Bell
Wright is along jump, but no writer from the dramatic day to that of
tbe novelist, has attained the number of readers. Mr. Wright's most
popular novel, "The Shepherd of the
Hills," has been made into a play
by its author with the assistance of
F.lsbery W. Reynolds, and Wlll be given its first local presentation at the
Auditorium, commencing Tuesday.
June 30th.
The story is one of the Ozark
mountains and teaches a lesson of
the simple life. Its characters live
and act naturally; it is a play that
attracts by its simplicity yet holds
the auditor with breathless interest
from the first curtain to the last.
Messrs. Gaskill and MacVitty. the
producers, are said to have siven the
play an excellent cast and a very
beautiful production.
Younir man or youn? woman, you
are worth something. Don't sell
yourself too cheaply. Your strength,
intellect, industry, application, morals, principles, and high character-
all of these are aBsets. They are
worth something if you have any of
them. Tbey are priceless if you have
them all, for they are what make
our foremost men and women. They
make great creatures, workers,
preachers, leaders, generals in war,
captains of industry, managers of
railroads, and heads of corporations.
Such men as these are not chosen
for their good looks. Certainly not!
Neither are they ever chosen becausv
of tbeir dishonesty, immorality,
thoughtlessness, selfishness, or disbelief in the hand nf a Divine Providence, Some men of. this kind succeed, hut the exceptions are rare.
Remember in this frivolous time
that the one thing you really have
as long as you live is your body.
That is yours. That stays with you
to the end. You must live with
yourself. Where you go, it goes with
you; when you pass away, it is in
your casket.
If this is true (and it cannot be denied), make the priceless gift to
your Creator of a sanctuary, clean,
sweet, wholesome, spiritual aa well
as physical, living the life that you
know you should live, putting a high
value on thc human frame in which
you make your home.
Beautify it with all the graces of
deportment, courtesy, kindness and
affection. Do not chenpen It with
vice, licentiousness, greed, intemperance, sordin 'ss, unbelief, and all
the train of sorrow and suffering
thnt follow in the path of sin.
Keep yourself worth all that you
can. Hold yourself in the world's
market, at  the highest price.
As the fanner seeks to win the
prizes witli the hest products of the
soil and breeding stable, as tho manufacturer strives for the finest work
of the loom the forge, or spindle, as
the young housewife delights in the
most delicate embroidery nnd the
artist in the highest example of hiH
art, so Y-t every onn, however bumble, seek the best for what he has
to offer, and he will get the higher

Peace Celebration
(Comtlnued from page Cue)
yearB, by formal agreement, tho
boundary Une between the United
States and Canada became a mere
political limitation, like the peaceful
boundaries that separate the States
ol   ttie  American  Union,  iustead  ol a
series of tort Ideations bet ween t wo
nations mutually distrustful of oue
"Believing that the blessings that
have followed in the tram of the
peace thus established eannot better
be brought to the attention of the
world at large than by a lit ting ce
lebratlon, the American committee
at its initial meeting, held four
years ago, tor inula ted a plan for
this purpose. The proposal was soon
thereafter laid before the people of
Creat Britain and the self governing
colonies of the British Empire,
"The American committee was
animated by a patriotic impulse and
the belief that through an adequate
world wide celebration $1 a century
of peace great good would be accomplished towards the rational
settlement of international disputes.
And it hoped and hopes to effect this
through the creation of a sentiment
which shall educate the peoples of
tbe world to regard forbearance and
mutual understanding as virtues to
be cultivated by governments and
nations, as well as by individuals.
"The Committee also considered
that through the association of tbe
peoples of many nationalities in a
common commemoration necessarily
there would result increased acquaintance, friendship and mutual
understanding which are essential to
permanent peace.
"Therefore, the undersigned, a special committee acting for the American Committee, a body whose many
thousand members are representative
of every section of the United States,
of every walk in life, and of every
profession and. calling and of the different elements from which our population is drawn, invite and urge
co-operation throughout the United
States, and thc active, sympathetic
interest of the citizens or subjects
of all countries,
"It is sincerely hoped that all ..will
take part with the American Committee, or with similar committees
in other laiulsi in the preparation and
execution of an adequate and fitting
programme that shall signalize, as
no other occurrence in the past would
enable, us to do, the realization of
Mr. Adams' prophetic wish that the
twentieth century might And' tbe
peace still unbroken.
"That our country has been Buch
an active factor in this wonderful
aclevement prompts us to celebrate
the event—for peace as well as war
is an event between nations—and
arouses the hope that the hundred
years which have passed since the
treaty of Ghent was signed on OhriBt-
mas eve, 1814, may be not only the
precursor of a perpetual peace between Oreat Britain and the United
States, but the promise of a broadening era of enduring peace between
all nations."
Tbe work of the British Committee
of which H. H. the Duke of Teck is
Honorary President and the Rt,
Hon. Earl tirey, late Governor-General of Canada, President, Is pro
grossing satisfactorily. At a meeting at tH> Mansion House, London,
on February S, 1914, presided ovor
by the Lord Mayor of London, the
Rt. Hon. H. H. Aaqulth, Prime Minister, was the principal speaker. At
tho conclusion of hia address he referred to the educational proposals
aud said:
"Americans telle pride in the great
names of our old English history,
alike in tho spheres of war, of administration, of literature and of
art. But we take an equal pride In
tho great men whom America has
contributed since the formal separation—a separation which is not in
consistent with real unity of spirit
ami foollng-men like Washington,
Lincoln and tho other groat herons
whom America haB produced and with
whom America has illuminated and
Illustrated tho British traditions of
"What could be a bettor and more
human and fruitful way of celebrating this great centenary than that
wo should establish In both our
countries a systematized, organised teaching of those common traditions and this common history which
will lead ns both hy reverencing and
appreciating tho examples of the
great men whom we share In common to realise more hilly what is the
depth   and breadth of our   common
heritage and our common responsibility in the history of the world.
"I earnestly commend to you and
to the larger public ■outsidft the opportunity which this centenary so appropriately provides of commemorating not merely by statues and by
other outward memorials—valuable
and important as they are—but by
the persistent teaching of the essential unity of our British race, the
greatest security which history has
yet afforded to any two sovereign
communities to contribute their share
to the permanent paelflcntiou of tho
In answer to a question put hy Mr.
W. 0, Wteohol, Member of parliament for North Waterloo, Out., as
to whether it were the Intention of
the Government  to grant assistance
to the Canadian Peace Centenary
Association, the Prime Mlniater
made the following statement:
"On June r>, 1918, a somewhat similar question to that now asked liy
my hon, friend (Mr. WetctlOl) wai
usked by the hon. member for Well
andgfMr. Gorman), who has taken a
worthy interest in this important
subject. The Canadian Peace Centen
ary Association, had then been in existence for upwards of a year, under
tbe presidency of Sir Edmund Walk
er, of Toronto, and bad done valuable work of a preparatory nature.
I  tind ou that  date  1 saitfc iu part:
" 'While the Canadian Peace Centenary Association is an unofficial
body, the, Government strongly sympathies with aud approves of its object aud purpose of promoting good
will and peace between the nations of
the world. The Oovernment is disposed to ffive favorable consideration
to a grant such as that mentioned in
the question in case similar action
should he taken in other countries."
"That statement Htill holds good ho
far as thiB Government is concerned.
Indeed, this Government is disposed
to go a step further. The cause
which the,Canadian Peace Centen-ry
Association and th1? corresponding
bodies in the United Kingdom nnd
the United States have set bef >re
them is one with which we are v/arm-
ly sympathetic. It is a triumph of
humanity that during a century of
rapid development, despite thc existence of serious international differences and problems, the British Empire and the United States have
found wiser and mor.* humane methods of adjusting differences than the
arbitrament of war. We welcome the
achievement of a century of peace,
and the forerunner of a long series
stretching into the future as far aB
human anticipation can trust itself.
"In answer to my hon. friend from
North Waterloo (Mr. Wtechel), I beg
to say that, subject to tbe approval
of His Royal Highness the Governor
General, it Ib tbe purpose of the Government to insert in the Supplementary Estimates to be introduced this
session the sum of $25,000 for th-
purpose of defraying the preliminary
expenditures Incurred in the work of
While the celebration more immediately concerns the United States,
Great Britain and Canada, it would
incomplete if the other great powers, with all of whom the principal
participants enjoy the most cordial
and friendly relations, were not invited to take a prominent part.
The following Manifesto to the Nations, reprinted from Circular No. 4,
was issued by tbe International Conference, held in May, 1913, in New
"Representatives of Oreat Britain,
of Newfoundland, of the United
States, of the Dominion of Canada,
of the Commonwealth of Australia,
and of the Municipality of Ghent,
having been In conference concerning
an appropriate cl«hratlon of tbe centenary of the signing of the Treaty
of Ghent, which mai'.ed the end of
the last international war between
the British aud tbe American poo
pies, united In offering to the govern
meats and the peoples of the civilized world an earnest Invitation to
take part in making this celebration
In every way worthy of the one hundred years of peace that It commemorates.
"We invite auch co-operation to tho
ond that It may be made clear and
unmistakable to public opinion everywhere that the timo has come
when International rivalries and differences, though numerous and severe, may be settled without the carnage and the horrors of war. Although It bo unreasonable to disregard tbe possibility of reindict arising in the future, out uf mutual or
partial misunderstanding, yet wo
gratefully recognize that the chances
of misunderstanding have qoen largely eliminated by th'J degree in which
modem science has facilitated intercourse anil nccelerntod communication. We are, therefore, encouraged
to hope tbnt tho development of letters, science and the arts of commerce, industry and tlnauce, of mutual knowledge, trust and good feeling on the part of those who owe

different tongues, may profitably ab

"Great Britain has been a colonising nation, aud the United States
has drawn to its population various
and powerful elements from different
countries and from different tlaga.
Therefore, a century of peace between
Creat Britain and her Dominions beyond the seas on the one hand, and
the United States on tbe other hand,
touches directly both the inte.vst and
the imagination of every laud to
whlcb Great Britain's sons have
gone, as well ns those of every nation from which the present day population of the United States has been
drawn. Such a celebration will not

Indian Conservationists
Tno Indian lias frequently—ami not
ulwiiyH unjustly—boen ncciiHort of cri-
mtoal carelessness with tire, and to
the ancestral habit of setting out
lires iu order to improve grazing Ior
buffalo hns even heen ascribed the
caiiHe of the prairies, on which trees
are onco moro being grown, lhit owing to the procopt nml nnd example
of Dominion Qre-wardeus this ingrained carelessness bas—In northern
Manitoba at least—been supplanted
by an' enthusiasm for forest conservation. Heveral hundred Indiana last
summer promised to obsorvo evory
precaution to prevent forest fires,
nnd, as tho Chief Kinr Ranger writes,
"Tbo fact of no firos this Biunmor is
proof positive that tho majority of
them havo faithfully kept their
pledges," During the course of tho
summer Bixty-three Indians voluntarily visited thi! ('hint's head-quarters
to dlBCUSS the plans nf the Forestry
Branch in the matter of conserving
tbto remaining forests in western ■ nn
Many of those fudiaiiH are silftl
cientiy well educated to serve as lire*
rangers, and, following its policy of
obtaining the hest men possible for
this work, the Dominion Government;
has enlisted quite a number nf Indians in the fire-ranglng Bervlcc. fo:
which tholr knowledge of the coun
try and tbeir enthusiasm for tbe
work make them admirably adapted.
Although the forost-flre loss on the
125,000 square miles of Crown tlm-
berland patrolled by Dominion tire-
rangers was very small—tho area <>f
timber burnt over being less than
nine one-hundred ths of one per cent.
(0.0!) per cent.)—yet this low loss
was not a little due to the frequent
showers of rain during the danger
season. In order to insure safety in
seasons of drought, tbfa Forestry
Branch proposes to install lookout
stations which will increase thc efficiency of the yet somewhat inadequate patrol. Already several towers have been established, enabling
the rangers to scan at erne glance
several hundred square miles of country. Wireless telegraphy bas also
heen brought into use and from The
Pas and Fort Churchill it is now
possible for the rangers in these remote regions .to communicate almost
instantly with the Forestry Branch
nt Ottawa in matters of special urgency. This is probably the first practical application of wireless telegraphy to forest tire protection in Am
erica or elsewhere.

Discovers Cancer's Origin
Paris, June 14—Dr. Alexis Carrels'
experiments at the Rockefeller Institute, New Vork, proving thut isolated tissues develop, demonstrate for
the first time the,exact nature of th.1
origin of cancer.
Professor Ohamby, of Ilroca hospital, who has made experiments like
Carrel's, expressed this opinion today, and added: "We have produced
in ii!w tissue, whose growth had
heen arrested, thnt active development which characterizes cancer.
When we obtain a more exact knowledge of the nature of cancer we will
he very near its cure."
Invents Recording Phone
Carl J. Gustnfson, a young farm-
er residing ten miles southwest of

Into the Instrument ovor the line
which can lie reproduced to th" occupant of the nlliee upon his return.

Milwaukee Railroad Will Tap a
Sage Creek Oil Fieids Show Best Prospect ot Any
the World.
(The Daily Inter Lake, KaNspell. Mont November 15th,
The Flathead line will no doubt be an electric railway, in keeping with the policy of the Milwuakee railroad, for general electrification of its western roads.
Recent activities in the business world point to the development of the oil fields in the Sage Creek country on
a large scale next spring This fact would indicate the
immediate construction of the Milwaukee and Corbin
I. E. SEGUR, a successful oil expert and partner of
Rudolph Sprekels, opened up a portion of the great California oil field, going sixty miles over the burning desert
Irom any producing well, and brought in a gusher. As
soon as Mr. Segur came to Calgary the oil excitement
started. After two trips into the Sage Creek field, Mr.
Segur says: "There are excellent reasons to believe that
a flow of oil 'will be struck at reasonable depth in various parts of this field. I do not believe that there is a
more promising oil field anywhere." Mr. Segur has recommended the Flathead oil field to his associates.

Recent Oil Strike Corroborates
I. E. Segur's Statement
Quoting from the daily drilling log, kept by Arthur
L. Lockwood, Mining Engineer, stationed at the B. C. oil
drilling camp, Sage Creek, for this purpose, we read the
following extracts:
January 1, 1914. Between 75 and 80 feet, a strong
flow of oil andigas was met, coating the tools and cordage and showing up well in the sand pump or bailer.
Owing to water pressure, it was practically impossible
to judge the quantity of oil, but it was considered pos-
tible that several barrels per day could be readily obtained.
March 6th. Struck a fine flow of oil at 130 feet. The
oil and gas came splashing up over the platform while
working, showing a pressure of oil and gas. The pressure was such that the oil and gas was not derived from
mere surface accumulation.
That we have proved for a distance of about three-
quarters of a mile, north' and south, oil is to be had in
commercial quantities, I think there can be no doubt;
but to the extent of how many barrels per day remains
to be proved.
The indications shown certainly warrant opening up
the property by larger and deeper wells.
I and those who were in the field with me,  are ready
at any time to substantiate any statement I have made.
This well is located on the apex of the Anticlinal fold
and,we think by moving down the slope a distance, onto
THE PROPERTY OF THE FLATHEAD PETROLEUM COMPANY, also Mr. I. E. Segur's opinion, that we would
strike a real OIL GUSHER at about 800 feet, which
would give every one interested a hundred to one on the
money he has invested in this stock.

Character Sketch
1 Minister Without Portfolio.
Another evidence of the confidence
in the Hon. George H. Perloy, Minister without portfolio in J the Borden
Cabinet, has again been given in hlB
selection to go" to London to look
after the business of the Dominion
and clear up the many questions
which have arisen tbere for solution
since the death of .Lord Htrathcona.
Sometimes the country does not fully appreciate the disinterested services given by many of its public men,
People are apt to criticise men in
politics, accusing them of seltlshncss,
and suggesting tbat they are animated with a desire only to serve tbelr
own ends. Hut even the most exacting critic fails to Hnd in the public
life of the Hon. Mr. Perley anything
which might savor of seif-interestf
He is the best example of a type,
many of which are to he found within tbe ranks of the Conservative party, whose one nmbitlon is to see the
interests of the Dominion advanced
and the greatness of the do;
Canada emphasized. He gave, during
the famous light on reciprocity, per
haps, the best example of the unselfish spirit as it can he seen in a
public man. Mr. Perley had large
lumber interests, which would havo
been increased in value to nn enormous extent by the passing of the ic-
ciprocity proposals. But Mr. I t.r-
ley reasoned that what was good for
him was not good for the people of
Canada as a wbole, and he relinquished the thought of future gain
for 'the benefit of the people, and he
spoke on platform after platform
against reciprocity., Such action
was eloquent and telling. But it was
characteristic of the man, and it wbb
only what his friends would expect
from him, as bis whole career has
been an open book, and no one can
point the finger of condemnation at
any single act in hia life.
It was hut to he expected, therefore, that Premier Borden should, on
the occasion of bis coming into power in 1911, select Mr. Perley as an
adviser in the council of the Dominion. But here, again, Mr. Perley
showed tbe spirit of his life in refusing to accept a portfolio with a salary, but preferred rather to givo
his services free, and as such be has
remained, doing at times, tbe work
of three men. That George H. Perley has much of the confidence of the
Prime Minister go?n without saying,
and a good story concerning the relations existing between the Premier
and bis colleague can be told with
an international significance attached to it. On tbe occasion of a visit
made by ex-President Taft to Ottawa last winter he was invited by
the Canadian Club to make an address. In tbe course of a speech he
made reference to his former acquaintance with Premier Borden and
hiB chief lieutenant, Mr. Perley, during visits made by them to Virginia
Hot Springs far a holiday. He referred to his having played golf with
both of tbem in a foursome, nnd to
bis having defeated them, ln replying to tbe ex-President's speech, Mr.
Borden, referring to the golf incident, stated that he and Mr. Perley
were defeated, and "that it was tbe
flrst time he hail ever known bis
friend Perley to go back on bim."
The reference was received with loud
applause, as every(man in the assembly knew that while the Conservative party wus in thc cold shades or
opposition Premier Borden bad no
more faithful friend and devoted adviser than George Perley.
Like many otber men who have
achieved prominence iu public life,
Mr. Perley has done so in spite of
tbe fact thnt b" Is not n man of
rugged physique, Hut tbe determination i'f the mnn is indomitable, and
the fact that be has had to take
great care in avoiding undue physical exertions bus served to assist
rather thnn binder bim in tbe making pf bis career. A man of inherited wealth, he might have been content, as many others are, to charter
a yacht and cruise in the waters of
the Mediterranean, or bask in the
sunshine of Southern France. But he
has chosen tbe moro dtflicult path.
He has preferred rather to assist In
the government of the country, confined for six months of the year in
tbe stuffy Atmosphere of tin House
of Commons, and for tbo otber six
months assisting other cablnot ministers ln tho amlnlstratlon of their
departments, when tbey required a
rest or n holiday, lt is for such
reasons as these that when a man
of the greatest reliability and possessing full public confidence wan required to act for Canada for a few
months as her representative in the
capital of tho Empire, that the Hon.
George H. Perley was chosen. Everyone knows Unit he will perform
bis duty with the ncument of the
(iiihUichh man nnd with the outlook
of a statesman. He will act without fear or favor, and according to
the best lights of tbe interests ol
tbe Dominion, He will take up tbo
question of tho British North Amnrl
cu Act, and the choosing of a   .'te
for Dominion Government oflices in
London. It is a well known fact that
Mr. Perley, if he wiBhed to secure
the High Commissionersbip himself,
could have it. But here again 'iis
self-effacing spirit in Bhown. He prefers to help work out the great problems which interest him at home
rgther than to plunge into the social
life of London, with all the attractions which the capital of the Empire can give to a man of refined
Hon. Mr. Perley is well known in
Ottawa for bis skill in games. As a
golf and billiard player he has few
equals, und those are his chief recreations. He plays games with his
braiiiB in the same manner as he
does all things, nnd thiB accounts
ror his success. He scorns many of
the pleasures which appeal to rich
men. For example, h:> never keeps an
automobile, preferring rather to hnve
thu exercise in walking, thus giving
au example to thousands or citizens.
He takes a keen interest in every
movement for tbe betterment of the
condition of the people, and there is
in the capital au institution known
as the "Perley Homo for Incurables"
which had its commencement In the
Kindly nature of the man, whom it
is called after, and hundreds of people hnve hnd reason to bless the
name of the founder.
As n speaker on the platform, or
in the House of Commons, George
Perley is quick, clear and decisive.
He may take a long time to form an
opinion upon a matter, but once
formed it is seldom changed. He
conducts the business of a department in the same manner as he
would conduct bis own business, with
due rbgard for economy and efficiency. Sometimes the remark is often
heard that it is a pity he will not
accept a permanent portfolio, because
he has such a grasp in a short time
of the needs of thoso who come to
him. During last summer, while Premier Borden was absent from the
Capital for an extended period, his
place was taken by thc Hon. Mr.
Perley, and general approval was expressed by all who had any business
to transact with him. At the snme
time he was acting minister of three
departments, thus showing his amazing versatility and the capacity for
Bond of Empire

will have nothing to do with them.
(Cheers) That, 1 believe, ia one of
the reasons why in the short space ofl
three and a half years we have gathered around tbe Central Committee
120,000 active members. These small
premises that you have sjpn nre but
a very slight indication of the size
and the vitality of this organization,
I am afraid that some of the oversea club-houses attached to this club
arc very much more imposing tban
ours. For example, among the vast
sheaf of cables we have received this
morning there is one from Melbourne
where the club has 3,200 members.
Perhaps 1 ought to let you know of
the club in the words tbnt have been
cabled to iih to-day from across the
seas—all very pleasing and very vital
messages. Tbe tlrst is from the Governor-General of Canada, the Duke of
Connaught, who cabled this morning
from Toronto:
"As patron, wish you every sue
cess."   (Cheers. J
Next we have one from his worthy
successor, Prince Alexander of Teck,
who goes forth shortly. He telegraphs tbiH morning from Windsor:
"HiH Highness iH very much interested lu tbe club and wishes it all
SUCCeflS, but be regrets extremely thnt
owing to a previous engagement ho
is unable to accept tbe kind inv ilu
tlon of the President aud Central
Committee for Monday, May 85,"
I shall not he accused, 1 am sure,
ol political bins if I nttnch very considerable importance to one from
Mr. Harcourt. (Hear, bear.) 1 do
not happen to share Mr. Harrourt's
views, but I do know, as one who,
as the Lord Mayor says, has been to
most parts of tbe Empire, that Mr,
Harcourt. is one of the moHt successful Secretaries of Stnte for the Colonies that we have had. In tbe Dominions and Crown Colonies 1 have
invariably heard that Mr. Harcourt
has been ono of the most accessible
and able of Ministers, nnd has taken tho most minute pains and great
trouble to investigate everything that
nffects the interests of the Dominions. The old outcry against Down-
ing-street bus now completely disappeared, a fact which is due lu no
small mmsurc to Mr. Harcourt,
(Cheers,)   He telegraphs:
"My warmest congratulations on
the opening of the club rooms and
my appreciation of the great, services
and success offthfa Oversea Club, An
obstacle has nrlsen to my coming to
yonr opening ceremony, as my Imperial Naturalisation dim is to be
considered   in   Orand   Committee of
the House from 12 onwards on that
duy, aud, of course, I must be pres
ent to take part nil that time."
1 do not think that Mr. Harcourt
could be engaged In a more import
nut matter than that Involved In
tbnt particular lllll, because nil cf
us who   have visited the   Dominions
know the anomaly of the situation.
(Hear, liear.)
I have a charming cable from Mr.
Borden.   He says:
"I understand that the official opening of the Overseas Club room in
London will take place on Monday,
May 25. May I he permitted to associate myself with thiB ceremony
and to express my sympathy with
the objects of the cluh, and especially with its endeavour to promote
better acquaintance and good-fellowship between the citizens of our Brit-
allegiance, whether of the,Mother
Country or of the SiBter Dominions.
The advantages of a common meeting ground nt thc heart of Empire
cannot be over-estimated, and will
lend an additional Inducement to visit your Imperial city, already so full
)f interest and charm to all Canadians. With my best wishes for the
continued success of the Overseas
The naxt is from the Prime Minister of New Zealand;

Lord Gladstone   cables from   -
"Congratulations und best wishes."
Mr. Denkin from Melbourne:
"Thus nud thus hath England helped us.
How can wo help England, say?"
Mr. George Foster from Ottawa:
"Minister's Office, Trade and Commerce Department, Ottawa, Canada.
I have been glad to learn of the
opening of the Overseas Club rooms
in London, set for May 25. I very
much regret tbat I shall not be with
you on that occasion. The Overseas
Club organization has done a wonderful thing in the prosecution of its
canvass for membership and in stimulating and in concentrating Imperial sentiment throughout the Empire. You have my hearty congratulations and most cordial wishes for
a successful future."
1 have a message here from dear
Lord Roberts.   (Cheers.)   He says:
I am very sorry I cannot have the
pleasure of being present at the opening of thc Overseas Club rooms by
thc Lord Mayor on tbe 25th of May,
I wish I could accept the invitation,
but I am heavily engaged all next
month. I am glad to see how well
thc club is getting on und thut 120,-
000 members of both sexes huve already joined.
Some of the more interesting messages come from remote parts of the
world, where one would hardly expect that we should have members at
all. There is one from Nigel, in the
Transvaal, where I am glad to say
have many Dutch members, and
others from Wollongong, New South
Wales, and Bahia, Argentine Republic. We have quite n large number of
club houses in tbe United States,
and there arc messages from Philadelphia, Brlsbuu.' (Queensland), the
Atlin lioldllelds, and many other
Sir William Ellison-Macartney, Governor of Tasmania, cables:
"Warmest congratulations. Club

Sir Harry Barron, Governor of
Western Australia, Perth, cables:
"Wish club every success."
The Marl of Liverpool, Governor of
New Zealand, Wellington, sonde:
"Greetings umi success to your undertaking/'
There are also messages from Mr.

would tike to suy one or two words
On tho object of the club. The club
works, of course, in harmony with
the Royal Colonial Institute, the
Victoria LeagUO, and otber bodies,
and there is no overlapping in organization. As a mutter of fact, owing to the immense Increase tn ocean
travel of the last four or five years
one can hardly have too many organizations to look after the Interests of thoso of our kinsmen from
across tbe sea who care to come to
England nnd those of Grent Britain
who go to the Dominions We hnve
found thut tbe little badge that Wl
wear—the small emblem that you see
most of us carrying, "O. S.:'—the
Lord Mnyor says "S. O, Si" (laughter)—Is a passport to friendship nnd
help almost everywhere lu the world.

NEVER in the history ot mankind has there lived a more ardent lover of Ftrsonal and National

of Poland knows that he would revolt at any LAW which declared ."Thou shalt NOT cat this —
thou shalt NOT drink that Kosciusko knew that the light wines of his native land and the barley brews of Germany were good for mankind when used in moderation. He drank them himself to the end of his honored days, and who will DARE say that they in any way injured this
mighty personality. For 57 years Anheuser-Busch have honestly brewed honest beers. Their

Immensely helped by loyal nnd patriotic men in every part of tbe Dominions, (Cheers.) But tbe club,
like the Empire, has many difficulties. We have in this club the same
difficulty that is presented to the

possibility of human tact to overcome. Well, I am glad to say that
Mr. Wrench has so advised the central committee and thl.'y have so
guided him that hitherto we bave

to our clubs in Mouth Africa, in fact,
some of the most enthusiastic
branches are composed of Dut oh men.
It is true that difficulties have presented themselves in Singapore,
where we have many! Chinese, and also in India, where for various reasons best known to themselves the
English and Indians do not join the

Kord Boi born* Raid;
1 have tbe honour to propose the
toast of "Tbe Ovorsoaa Dominions of
the King," aud to couple that toast
witb the name of my old friend, Blr
(leorge Held, whom I had the great
pleuMiire of meeting for the Ilrst. time
—and also Hir Edward Morris-at
the time of the Imperial Conference
In the Diamond Jubilee of 1897, You
will remember thnt during the Hoiltll
African War mnny thoiiHHiidH nftprm
oners of war were sont to eatnpR overseas-to India, Ceylon, Ht. Helena,
Seychelles lund Uormtid*. That measure was one of military precaution,
but it bad really important. pollifeal
results. The Boers of South Africa,
lik'e ull p.f us, were and are thc creatures of their own hiBtory. And . e-
fore thc war tbe Boers of tbe no'. Ill,
especially in the Transvaal, bad ben
practically as much cut off from Europe and from America as if they bad
lived in the planet Mars. Thirty
years ago there were no railways at
all in tbe Transvaal. The Boer had
no opportunity of knowing wbat was
going on in the outside world, and
his chances of education were very
different then from what they nre
now. This wholesale transportation
was the only possible means of giving an education as to the conditions
of the world outside Houth Africa to
thc adult Boer, and the results of
that education were politically very
Important. According to my experi
ence there was no subject on which a
Boer who had been a prisoner of
war was more delighted to talk, and
many a talk I bave bad with them
round the camp tires and on tbe
stoop of their own farmhouses. And
I will tell you in the most picturesque rendering which I recollect two
thoughts which kept constantly recurring in those conversations. One
man said to me: "Be.'ore.the wnr we
were told that you British had no
friends. When we were sent, all over
thej world we found time you did not
require friends because you had so
many brothers." (Cheers.) Another
said to me' 'We were all led to expect that we should not have to tight
this war alone, that we should receive help from foreign nations, We
never .understood why that help never
came until we were sent overseas.
Then I saw. Wheo a man wants to
travel over my farm he has to come
and ask my permission for bis wagons to pass there. Well, I soon saw
that tbe sea.was your farm and tbat
no one's wagons could pass tbere
without your permission." (Cheers)
Now I think those two thoughts
npply to the conception of the Over
Heas Club, to the King's Dominions
overseas, and to the whole Empire.
Vou gentlemen overseas, indeed, have
realized the fact thnt the more
brotM-'rs visit each other, the more
they see of each other, the more and
better they understand each other.
(Cheers), And your motto shows
tbat you are steeped witb tbls truth
—that tho whole Empire has sprung
from the sea and can only live hy the
sen. (Ohfhrs.) This is not the occasion to discuss standards of naval
strength. But I shall not bo saying anything for wblcb I shall be reprimanded by yon, Mr. President,
whon I sny that our doses ol ialt
water, cannot be proscribed In pint-
pots, and thnt we cannot estimate
our standards of sen strength bv any
meticulous measure, became the Interests which are at stake    me    so
tremendous,    (01 rs.)     tt   is   Hot
only tbe question of our existence hh
nn Empire, bnt 1 puUH *" you thai
tbe Umpire, tbo Overseas Dominions,
and th* whole country together are
ths greatest and most powerful peace
asset today (cheers), and the more
the brothers who form that society
are united in sympathy, the better
tbey are organized, the more powerful and the more effectual that society iwilljb' for preserving the pence
of the world.   (Cheers.)
Lord Buxton, in seconding th,-
toast, said:
"You, Mr. President, more than
once In your remarks laid emphasis
—and I think very properly laid emphasis—on the fact that this Overseas Club was ip every sense of the
term non-political-non-political here
and non-political overseas. I think
It Is a very satisfactory thing that
our foreign questions, which not very
many yenrs ago used to lead to most,
acute differences of opinion here iu
England and elsewhere, have entire
ly ceased to be party matters.
(Cheers). It is due, I think, in the
ilrst instance, to the wise guidance of
Lord Lansdowne, followed by the
wise guidance of Sir Edward (Irey.
And the same applies to thesu great
questions affecting our Empire and
Dominions Overseas. From time to
time we have bad controversies in
regard to tbem, but I do not think
nt the present moment—nor looking
forward does one anticipate—that
there nre any questions affecting
them wblcb are likely to give rise to
pnrty questions over here or In the
Dominions themselves.   (Cheers.)
The otber grent service of the Overseas branches has already been
dealt witb by Lord Helborne. It
brings together in friendship and In
society those living Wire and those
living in our great Dominions, and
those In the various Dominions as
well. And 1 think tt must have been
a satisfaction to you, Sir, as president, to Had that your idea, so admirably worked out, has not confined   itself   tO  some  of  the centres of
civilisation In tbe Dominions, but
hns extended to many of the smallest parts and tho smallest places
throughout all tbo Dominions, that
it has apparently taken deep root
and will extend yenr by year.
Hir (leorge Iteid, in responding,

the most useful peers I know.
(Laughter.)   I cannot help   thinking
Of tho grent dlllenu.ee between this
Overseas l']ub nnd most clubs of
which we know anything. Ah ii rule
a club ls rather a difficult place to
get into. Tbe membership is strictly
limited, and It Ium beeu said of most
Of the clubs that If the men wbo nre
in tbem went up for election again
there would he very (ew members
left. <Laughter.) This club is of n
different sort, it is a club whlcb already has the largest membership, i
think, of any club In tho world, 1
remember well the flattering welcome
I got. from the Overseas Club In Mel
i bourne, which poysessos severs) thou
sand members and is rapidly adding
tu its numbers. You know our Hritisb family is widdy scattered, and
the more closely we are connected—
on visiting terms—the better for the
continuance ol the ardenl loyalty
which at present so happily prevails.
This Overseas Club will ni'ot one of
the great wants of which men wbo
live in distant parts of the Empire
are conscious. It is a splendid bleu,
nnd I want to see not 120,000 members, but hefore another two or three
years nre over 400,000 or f.00,000
members of it.   (Cheers.)
I was very glad to hem the president refer to Mr. Wrench. Mr. Wrench
might have gone on studying bIs own
self-interest and he might bnve done
well nnd yet hnve done very little.
But be bas done a grent work for the
Empire in sacrificing his own personal prospects in order to go to tbe
whole of the scattered families of
our British race. I am glnd thai tbo
president has referred tn bim and
tbat he has got a mnn like the president behind him. He ought'to feel
that be bas got an unlimited sphere
of future  usefulness.   (Cheers,)
The Hon. Thomas Mackenzie, who
also responded, said:
I have been added to this toast
list partly, I suppose, because you
bave been reading tbnt Sir Oeorge
Reid has been fooling somewhat lonely In London. (Laughter), 1 think
that New Zealand is perhaps even
more loyal than Australia to the Old
Country. We in New Zealand set
them the example. (Laughtec.) We,
