A Task for Men of
The Laymen's Missionary Movement
The Laymen'h Missionary  Movement
The Cranbrook Conferences of the
Laymen's Missionary Movement on
the 27th (Friday) of this month invite the attention and co-operation
of every layman in the district. The
visiting speakers are men of broad
vision and versatility in their allot-
ed subjects. The greatest miracle of
the present generation is in the line
of rapid and wide expansion of the
Christian Church. The great reformation movements found tbe activities of Christianity congealed in semi
pagan ceremonial and formalities.
Her leaders openly espoused the
cause or universal sovereignity in all
matters temporal, political and spiritual. Christianity during the first
four centurft.8 was intensely missionary in its character. The evangel of
redeeming grace was heralded southward into Arabia and Africa; Eastward into India and even China;
Westward into Europe and Northward into Asia Minor. Had the early Church maintained her separate
ness and holy character she would
have also maintained her holy zeal
and power. But, lapsing into the
lethargic security of a wor^d re
quorer, with the whole world at her
feet she quickly reverted to the darkness of the paganism which in the
days of her glorious strength, b!i
had overthrown and expelled.
The reformation of tbe fifteenth
century only partially restored the
church to her primitive throne as
consort with her divine Lord and
Master. It remained for the comin
of the nineteenth century to soun
the awakening call to her divinely
appointed task for calling the nations again to the sceptor of the
At the beginning of tbe nineteenth
century all doors to missionary endeavor were closed against the
church. The throne of grace was irh
portuned for open doora, men and
money, with such power that the
close of thi? century found thousands
of missionaries and tens of thousands
of converts and practically every
door open for tke welcome of the e-
vangel of grace. Even here the
church did not recognize nor fully
accept her task. First the few Godfearing men and women went forth
for duty, often faintly supported by
their borne churches. Then the call
was heard by the women who quickly
organized themselves into Guilds
Mission Circles, Societies, etc., **r
thc better prosecution of the work.
Next to hear the call waB the
Young Men and Women in tbe church
es and colleges. These formed themselves into Endeavor Societies and
Student Volunteers, etc., giving a
powerful impetus to tin- missionary
enterprises of the world. Then last
of all, the call was heard by the men
of Christendom. They are answering with a mighty shout of victory.
Tltese form, the last rlass of un-utll-
Ized forms in the Christian churches.
What the Laymen's Missionary
Movement did for an Ontario church.
The membership of tbis countr
church was approximately two bun
il.'.d. Fourteen years ago the pastor served a parish covering a territory nine by eighteen miles of thickly settled farming lnnds. Hla stipend of $.00.00 with Manse, barely
sufficed to meet his ever-increasing
expenses. The congregation was generous, openhnnded, hut lacking In organization. Thc pastor organized
the working forces for efficiency with
considerable ivspoi.se and sympathy.
Yet the church found soma difllculty
In raising the stipend and .400.00 for
missions. After a pastorate of five
years the minister wns succeeded hy
another. Coincident with his settlement was tbe birth of tbe Laymen's
Missionary Movement. About the
snme time a movement of the members toward tbe West grently depleted the financial strength of tbe
church. However, under the impulse
of this movement $200.00 were added
to the pastors stipend and the offer
Ings to denominational enterprises
were increased from $400.00 to $1,000
annually. For yenrs this church hns
maintained this standard of givin
ami has done it with greater facility
than when she cave the lesser a
mount-    It haa been truthfully aald
tbat the most hopeless poverty of
the Christian Church is poverty of
.it-ton. It ia to give us vision that
our brethern wil] counsel with us in
the Conferences on the 27th inst.
Premier Borden bas introduced the
re-difltribution bill of which he gave
notice last week. Hn pointed out
the necessity under the British North
American Act of the readjustment,
and reviewed legislative regulations
governing such adjustment. While
the principle of reprecentntion by
population was the rule, he pointed
out that it was not absolutely accurate to say that representation
was absolutely based ou population
because it was provided there should
be no reduction in the number of
members from any Province, unless
its population in proportion to the
whole population of Canada had di-
ministered by one twentieth part or
upward since the previous census.
The Premier read a table showing
the population at the lart census as
Alberta        374,663
British Columbia     292,480
Manitoba        455,614

Quebec    2,003,232
Saskatchewan   ' 4.2,432
Yukon          8,512
The unit, taking Quebec at 05, was
30,819 for every  member.    This has
given the following representation in
the 03Xt house;
Alberta    12

Saskatchewan      16
Yukon     1
Total  234
or a total of 235 members if Prince
Edward Island retains hor present
British Columbia secures the largest increase, from seven to thirteen
members, and while it is impossible
to say what tbe effect may be in o-
llier constituencies, we can be pretty
certain of the result in Kootenay.
The division must come from the
North to the South, following the
Selkirk range of Mountains, giving
an east and west riding.
The West riding includes Revelstoke, Slogan, Kaslo, Ymir, Robs-
land and Nelson, with a total population of 28,373.
The east riding will consist of Cran
brook, Fernie, and Columbia, with a
population of 22,399.
Result of Contest
The piano contest at the C. C. S.
ended on Saturday last. Misa Lottie Fyles, No. 22, was the winner
with a total of 156,940,650 votes;
Miss A. Yarwood wan second with
132,270,650 votes; anil Ml&a Jeannette
Duncan  third   with  11,136,385   votes.
Tom Marks coming
How often havo you beard the expression "Oh, it takes Tom Marks
Comapny to park the theatre in thiB
town," and bow often bave you seen
this statement verified? The reason
for this expression is very simple.
The Tom Marks Company will appear here for six nights, February 16
to 21st inclusive, commencing Monday 16th. and throughout their en-
gagemen t there will not be a dull
moment, the laughter will be spontaneous and the plays will bubble o-
ver with mirth und humor with the
aformentiotied comedian as presiding
fun maker. A visit to Tom Marks
Company will chase away the blues,
for there is a laugh for everyjffrtnute,
from which fact the Tom Marks Com
pany gains its soubriequet, "the
show with laughter." There are no
tiresome waits between Acts, the
time being occupied with excellent
vaudeville. A complete change of
program each evening, prices to suit

On motion Dr. Rutledge wns given
permission to address the council on
matters pertmining to tuberculosis
conditionn of cows. He said: That
at the request of a number of citizens, he appeared before the council
to usk tbem to take tbe initial steps
toward arranging for the formation
■f a cow testing association, as this
was in the interest of those engaged
in the dairy business. These conditions bave been fully tested by eminent health officers and tbey had
found but one exception, and that
was that tuberculosis or "white
plague" was transferred from the
Bovine to the Human race. He said
"that there was but little difference
between reacting tubercular cows,"
and that in many cases the milk
was found to be tainted, and that he
would recommend that all reactory
cows should be properly branded.
It would be much more satisfactory
to the public to know that the milk
that tbey were using came from the
best of healthy cows. All cows
should be tested at least twice each
year, and inspected monthly, and if
any rearters were found, for tbem to
be branded or an ear cut oil, to show
people who were buying, to beware
f such branded animals. In furthering the theme, the Dr. said: "tbat
all metal cans should be discarded,
and only tbe seeled bottles used. Any
milk suspected of being tainted
should be sterilized, so as to protect
the  public, home and  families.
Each funnel undor these conditions would keep a record of the a-
mount ami kind Of feed consumed,
the milk produced would be tested
for butter, fat and milk solids, and
these records be computed hy dairy-
nun. The Doctor then informed the
council that the Oovernment bad enacted a bill giving to municipalities
authority for passing stringent lawa
toward improving prevailing conditions. Chapter 4, section 1, reads:—
The Council of every municipality is
hereby authorised to enact by-laws
tiling the standard of butter fat, and
total solids of mi'. sold in auch
municipality, but milk shall not be
sold for human consumption which
contains less than three and one-
quarter per cent of milk fat, or less
than eight ami one-halt per cent, of
milk solids other than fats.
The matter wns laid ovt-r until the
neit meeting of the Council.
Leave was granted to Messrs.
O'Connell and Webb to address the
Council in the interests of tbe Agricultural  Association.
Mr. O'Connell in his remarks aaid:
"Tbat owing to stringent Hnancial
Condition, the Association were forced to aHk thc Council for assistance
in promoting the fair this season;

20th YEAR
"The policy I give you at this moment, the policy 1 believe every patriot in Canada ought to support,
and lhe policy I believe it to be the
duty ol the government to immediately inaugurate, Is a policy of absolutely free food—food free from cus
toms duties." Sir Wilfrid Laurier at
the banquet of the Liberal Club Federation at Hamilton, Ont. 'Scarcely
a day passes but somebody gives
Laurier's "free food" myth a swift
kick. And tbey are not all Conservatives either. No one can accuse
tbe St. John "Globe" of being Tory
ni its leanlngB. it bas on the contrary, fought the battles of Liberalism in the Maritime Provinces for
years. And yet, after examining Sir-
Wilfrid's panacea, merely rises to remark in a bored languid way that
"most people will find it strange
that the Liberal leader did not think
of giving us "free food ' during the
fifteen years that he was in office;
which is tbe Globes way of Ber
notice upon Sir Wilfrid that svei
followers are getting tired of seeing
mm "eating crow" on tbe tariff.
Down in  San  Francisco,  they hav
just heard of Sir Wilfrid's new tariff
tune,    whereupon    the    "Chronicle" !
makes  the   following   observations:-—
"Sir  Wilfrid   Laurier  has  adopted
the slogan ■ free food before dread
noughts,"   und
in a cam
paign of reducing duties as a means
of reducing the cost of living. He
will find no help for his theory in
the experience of the United States
under the new tariff. And In any
case where does Canada expect to
get cheaper fond than she can furnish herself. She eats only one-
quarter of    the    breadstuff    raised
within the Dominion."
•   •   •    .
"Free Food" means free trade in
natural product, and dee food In
natural products means the removal
of the very corner (-tone of the super
structure of adequate and reasonable
protection to every Canadian industry. If you refuse to protect the
farmer [rom outBide competition,
how lon_ is the farmer going to a
aree to the protection ol our manufacturers? II .. ; >r-■ will ;.-

bas been successful. It has given the
fanner a home market. It has made
this half of this northern continent
a bee hive of industry, and it has
made  the Canadian  workii.g-_.ian  the
most contented, and the most happy
and the highest paid in the world.
To prove this it is not necessary to
lean upon illusive statistics, We
have certain and infallible proof In
the movement, of population. Labor
never knowingly goes from a place
of high wages to a place of low wage
Tbe fact that men of all races, creed
and sects, are pouring Into this eouu
try at an unprecedented rate shows
where wages are highest, where opportunity is greatest, nnd where op-
Btanding of living is the hest. That
the lender of a political party that
attributes to itself patriotic motives
would strike at the heart of the pol
icy which is responsible for tbls hup
piness and prosperity of our people,
is almost beyond belief. Yet this is
precise!.. What .s meant by the pro
posed abolition of the tariff on nat
ural products. For there is not B

natural products would sooner or la
