Ottawa, Canada.
Dear Sir:—
I enclose you my fourth list ol,
complaints which I trust the Board
will permit uie to present before
them at Nelson on December 9th. In
large and small matters I am the
special victim of the Canadian Pacific
Railway Company's suite and bitterness. I have served copies of the enclosed on tbe Solicitors ol the C.P.R.
at Cranbrook and Montreal. Will
you kindly see that copies are forwarded to your board.
Yours veey truly,

W. E. Cline, Esq.,
Chief Deapatcher, C.P.R.
Cranbrook, B.C,
Dear air:—
I am in receipt of your meesage
that imperative orders are Issued
not to supply ua with cars for lumber.
We bave one car here loaded tor
Ayleabusg, Saak. Owing to the delay caused by shortage of cars our
customer cancelled the order. We
have an order for Expanse, Sask.,
for the same customer, but we are
informed by the agent of the Canadian Pacific Railway Company that
we cannot unload the Aylesbury car
and use tt for Expanse; that the
Company will not accept cars for
that place. Further, that the Company threatens to send their men to
unload tbe car and take it away.
They will do tbis at their peril and
action for damages will follow.
A short time since we had two
cnra at Proctor loaded for Edmonton and your Company insisted on
us unloading the same as they re-
funed to transport the care to En-
monton. We then loaded care for
Vermillion and Vegrejllle and your
Company ordered these to be unloaded alao.
In  October   we   could   obtain   no'

Manuel Training School
On Monday, next, the Manual
Training school will ho opened under
the management and direction of Mr.
A. M. Webb.
The new school building la a brick
atriicture, one atorey In height with
with walla of sufficient dimension
and strength to carry a second storey when needed. It is said to be the
heat and moat modern building of Ita
k nd ln the province of British Co
lumbln. Tho main room ia 30 t SO,
with windows on four aides, Is well
lighted and fitted with eloctric lights
for night work If necessary.
The room contains 24 work benches
each bench being equipped with the
lollowlng tools. Utile, »t|iinre, chisels

dodwlng pit, piano, hacksaw, two

Theae benches are ndjustlhle to the

Ench pupil la provided with a locker for his tools and la held reaponai'
ble for the anme.
cars for ten consecutive days. Our
sheds, yards and trucks were (ull of
tiniahed lumber ready for loading,
and ln reaponse to my appeal to the
Board of Railway Commissioners,
eighteen cars were rushed ln, in a (ew
daya to Proctor, demonstrating that
your Company could supply cars
when compelled to do so. In tbe
meantime the Proctor Mill and a
great part of the lumber waa destroyed by fire. A large quantity of
the finished lumber around the re-
saw, in the planing mill, on platforms and on twenty-two trucks waa
burned and thla lumber waa NOT-
INSURED and waa watting (or cars.
Had we been supplied with cars lt
would have been shipped. Your
Company ls therefore resnonsible for
the great loss we sustained in that
respect as it ia also responsible (or
other losses caused by your Company's failure to supply cars through
out tbe greater part of the past two
As further evidence of the extreme
bitterness displayed by your Company to any person or persons who
bave the courage to criticise them
(or the gross injustices they perpetrate upon the people, (or example;
I am just in receipt of not ce tbat no
goods are to be supplied to us unless wc pay Bpot cash for the freight
otherwise no supplies will be delivered to our camps, notwithstanding
the fact that we have had for years
a credit account with the Company,
not alone for freight, but for telegraphic business for the convenience
of both parties and this account baa
always been paid upon the due date.
I merely mention this to show the
extreme spleen and bitterness displayed by the Company at every
possible turn and time.
Please take notice that I have
laid the foregoing matters before tbe
Board of Railroad Commissioners,
and that copies have been served on
tbe Solicitors of the Canadian Pacific Railway Company, alao coplea

the Oranbrook school ts the most mo

C.P.R. to Blame for Wreck
Eighteen Killed and Injured in Wreck of Train No
514 at Fitzgerald, Alta.—Coroner's
Jury Places Blame
The early morning train due tn
Medicine Hat at 4:20 from Kootenay
Landing piled in a heap about 3:30
on Monday morning at Fitzgerald, a
amall croaalng between Seven Persona
and Bullshead. Two engine men
loat their lives and aome 67 people
were more or less Injured. Two or
three of tbem were seriously hurt
and one will likely die. Engineer
James Cain, a veteran of the throttle, lay under the firebox ot his engine. He suffered a most terrible
death,as did also his fireman, H. H.
Fowler. When lt struck the switch,
the engine careened and rolled completely over, tbe train broke loose
and the baggage, express and mail
car and coaches left the rails and
rolled over.
Engineer Cain's left side was badly
cut but from the state of his body be
evidently died a terrible death, the
escaping steam from the engine evidently slowly but surely claiming his
life. When the rescuers found him he
was dead. H. H. Fowler, Oalgary,
the fireman died, like his chief, at
hia post, and in the same manner
onlythat there la not a mark of any
kind on hia body other than scalds.
Of the eight injured, who were taken eo the hospital, one George Dow-
ling, a carpenter of this city, will
likely die. He ia in a precarious
condition. The others are seriously
hurt and it will lively pe a (ew days
before it is known Just what the
outcome will be.
The train in question was in charge
of Conductor Beeber. He is not seriously hurt, but was badly shaken
up and bruised. The brakeman waa
badly shaken up. The baggageman
nnd the five mall clerks on tbe train
had a wild experience. That they
escaped w th their Uvea la miraculous. They were the greatest sufferers in tbe amash.
Herewith ia a Hat of the persona
killed and Injured at ehe weeck ol
train No. 514 at Fitzgerald
"J. F. Gain, englne?r, scalded to
"H. H. Fowler, fireman, scalded to
"William Smith, pnasenger, Lethbrldge, forehead cut.
"George Dowling, car repairer,
Medicine Hat, right leg cut, badly
crushed, amputation necessary.
"William Cross, passenger, Lethbrldge, right ear cut, shoulder
"George Russell, passenger. Keeler,
Daak., scalded.
"Henry Herrickson, passenger, Finland, three scalp wounda.
"Joe Wynn, Central Butte, Soak.,
passenger, abdomen injured.
"Abraham Houglns, passenger,
Kipp, Alta., scalp wound five inches
long, left shoulder severely Injured.
"Martin Edwardson, passenger,
Seven Persona, right arm broken in
two places, shoulder bruised.
All the above were taken to Medicine Hat hospital and attended to.
Those able to do so returned to their
respective homes. Ro fnr ub investigation' shows at present, the accident was due to excessive speed ol
the train when passing over the
west switch at Fitzgerald.
Mr. Cain was one of the pioneer
residentsot Medicine Hat and besides
one of the most efficient employees of
the Canadian Pacific railway on the
division, bo possessed qualities of
citizenship whlcb placed him blgh ln
tbe regard of the community. He
had advanced ideas In regard to
municipal ownership and alwaya
took great Interest in civic affairs.
His presence at public meetings insured a thorough niring o( the subjects under discussion. He was a
membet of St. Patrick's congregation, and liberal ln politics. He
leaves a widow and six children.
Medicine Hat, Alta.—Nov. 27—The
coroner's jury which Inquired Into
the death of Rnskiear Oa n and Fire,
man Fowler this morning after alt-
ting (or over six hours returned a
verdict exonerating tho dead engineer
tbe train crew (rom any blame
they censured the O.P.R. for allowing
a  broken car to block the main line
for three days, making It necessary
tor the train to pass on the Bide
track. General Superintendent Price
was a witness. Engineer Cain was
burled today. The elsht Injured ln
the hospital are doing us well as can
be expected.
Among the tales coming from tho
wreck is one wh ch calls forth the
greatest praise ol Misa Ella Walsh, a
young milliner of the city, who waa
a passenger on the train. The stories
of the wreck carried hy this young
lady makes her a modern Florence
Night ngale. Steadily for four long
hours after the wreck this young
woman went among the injured bandaging their wounds and relieving
their hurts.
She was asleep in the sleeper when
the wreck occured bavin •. boarded the
train at Lethbridge. Wiicn the BmnBh
came she quickly dressed and hurried out. Many of the pnssengers
were out before her, hut they stood
around looking on. Not so Miss
Walsh. She bow a number of Injured lying stunned while mnny others
were sitting nround with blood gushing from their wounds. MIbs Walsh
hurriedly tackled the train crew, and
from them secured some liniment and
bandages, and set to work dressing
The sights which erected her were
terrible, but only once wus she. noticed to flinch, nnd tbat was when
she found a young man with a terrible gaping wound In his forehead.
This was in the cur but a few
breath of fresh air so,|n supplied the
nerve to*go on.
As soon us the doctor from Seven
Persons arrived he n-edod someone
to adm neter chloroform while ho
performed urs-ent operations. Miss
Walsh despite her already harrowing
experience, wiib ready, and went a-
head of the Burgeon relieving the
pain of the suffering by the chloroform. From tour o'clock to eight
o'clock this young lady worked before her labors wero complete. Rhe
boarded tho rescue train und came to
the city and took herself off to tho
millinery store to make headgear for
the ladles' hnts just as If nothing
else had ever happened.
Mrs. Townley's Lecture a Success
Women are AH Enthused by Lecturer's Noble Sentiments
On Thursday evening a meeting under tha auspices of the Women'a Institute waa held at the 'Gym' at
which a moat entertaining and Instruct ve lecture was given by Mra.
C. R. Townley, a prominent officer
of the "Daughters ol the Empire"
from Vancouver. Mra. Benj, Palmer,
president of tho Institute, presided
nnd in a 'ew well chosen words
stated the object, of the meeting and
introduced the speaker.
The subject dealt with by Mra.
Townley wna "Our Flag and What it
Stands For;" and in a moat intelligent speech ahe pointed out some of
the many beiullts derived from and
the duty we owe to 'The Flag.'
Speaking flrat on the queation ol
loyalty, Mrs. Townley pointed out
that the Canadian people are aa loyal to our King un nny of the other
Dominions hut they seem to feel that
our "Flag" needs no boosting and as
a whole we do not give enough atudy
to th> meaning of our ling and Empire and are to forget that we have
a natural reticence In speaking before other peoplo of our lovo and loyalty to our King.
The speaker thon wout on to say,
'aha considered thnt ln every room
in our achools a Hinall Union Jack
ahould be placed und tlu chlldrea Instructed ln the I rl 11 s truditiona
attached to the anme and that loyalty to our King shuuld be a first
consideration. *
Demonstrst ng on the formation ol
tho Union Jack, Mrs Townley pointed out that the flag ls compoMd ol
n combination nf the flags of St,
George of England; St. Andrew of
Scotland nod St. Patrick ol Ireland;
and thnt the whole Empire Is hound
together undor tho following:
One Flag—The Union Jack.
One Ruler—King George
One Name—The Br tlsh Empire
One Anthem—God Save the King.
She (urther pointed out that attached to our Flag la a great and
glorloua history and that wherever
lt flies there is Fair Play, Justice
and Freedom, for every person whether foreigner or British born. To
raise our flag to Its present state ol
honor many brave deeds have been
accomplished by both our army and
navy and the blood of many brave
and unselfish men has It-en shed to
preserve its honor.
Speaking of the Industries of this
fair Dominion, Mrs Townley first
drew attention to our groat agricultural possibilities, whlcb ahe aald
were not yet fully recognised as we
have still many ncres of land undeveloped; she then pointed out that
our watcrwayB and ra lways were tho
finest In the world nnd our flBberliis
and mines among the hest.
For this prosperous state ol affaire
we have to be thankful we belong to
the British Empire nnd bavin- no army or navy to protect ourselves from
Invuslon we bnve to roly on the army
and navy of the Old Country hut
waa pleased to sny that the Iioniln-
inns of the Empire are now beginning to realize that to preserve our
present state ol prosperity and ensure pence they must be pn-rpared to
help nnd she was confident that Canada's contribution tbls yenr would
not be a small one. Mrs. Townley Is
Onnadlan born and Is proud ol tho
fact hut ahe Is prouder still to think
nhe la llrltlsh horn nnd belonged to
the greatest empire of tho present,
day   and tbo 1 rontest. the world has
ever seen which IB under one flag
and one king.
Our soc nl conditions, snld Mrs
Townley hnve been greatly improved
of recent years but there is still
plenty of room for Improvement although we arc tho freest and best
governed people .In the world.
A vote of thanks to tho Lecturer
was given and the meeting closed
with.the flinging of thc National Anthem.
In an intorview nfter tbe meeting
Mrs Townley suld that sbo Ib delighted with the loynlty displayed hy
all Bbe has come In contnet witli and
all .the meetings have been well attended at which sho bus spoken. A
grent Interest ls being shown in this
movement both by Canadian born
and Old Country people. Dealing
with the question ol schools nnd
school children, Mtb, Townley aaid,
Bhe thought it wns Imperative to Instill into children of tlic present-day
love and honor for tbe Hag and empire and wc should then have a lilt-
I thor generation of children who
I would display the same loyalty as Is
now shown. If tills Ih not done, she
Bald, thlB generation would he npt
to forget ns they hnve no opportunity of seoing nur beloved King or
I Soldiers ol our Empire.

Thirty thousand locomotive engineers on 52 enstern railways In the

Secretary of the C.B. of R.E. Speaks
Editor "The'Prospector."
Oranbrook.,  B.C.
In your contemporary (.tbe Herald)
of tbis week's issue, I notice u statu
ment made hy Mr. Pr ce, General
.Superintendent of tbe Alberta Division, in connection with the present
regrettable dispute between the 0,P.
R. and tbe CD. of R.E..; and In
view of the responsible position ot
tills official mid the consequent credence thnt will be given to hla remarks, I beg to avail myself uf the
publicity of your columns in which
to offer comment, for, with all duo
respect to Mr. Price, bis remarks are
mislealilng, nnd in one particular instance, especially the conclusion, absolutely incorrect.
1 refer to the remark that "tbe
propose)-) schedule of the C.B. of R.
li. if accepted by the Company would
result in actual reduction of wngeB
of certain employees on western lineal
I fail entirely to understand how
Mr. Price can make this statement
coincide with the terms ol tbe
schedule covering the Increase of
wages for men on this Division. A
copy of this schedule was sent to Mr.
Price, and also to the local Superintendent nuh, In the Item covering
the wage question, the proposal called for an Increase of present rates in definite and unmlstake-
oble terms—mentioning thirty per
centon one basis, fifteen per cent on  that" no   "dYslocation   o7 traffic   or"
notber and so on. 4 freight   business    has    resulted from
II the proposals of our schedule tbe strike this is surely a matter up-
called for a levelling up process all I on which the public nre entitled to
over the system so as to establish a j their own conclusions. If the public
uniform   rate   of    pay for the same! are   getting   satisfactory freight ser-
I this    is essentially  q matter for the
Board of Conciliation   to  decide.     If
j such    n    board    should   come to the
, conclusion    that    the  matter it  was
culled    upon    to  adjudicate involved
j too   many grades  of  the  Company's
employees.     H  would  be  within  tbe
province   ot   the Hoard to report ac-
cirdingly      and      the     Brotherhood
would    then    consider   tbe   situation
that   would    have arisen;  but in  the
interim,  it  is  not within  the discretion   of   the  C.p.R.   to   refuse   us   a
board   at   all.    It is entirely u matter tor the M nister of  Labor to decide, und in uiak ng   our   appeal   to
blm   In    the    lirst    instance,    we invoked the protection of the Dominion
law    to    which    we    are   entitled ns
j Canadian     Citizens.       Controversial
■ matters are obviously  the very- matters    upon which the Board is asked
eo investigate and report.
I might point out in this connection a fact that seems to have es
caped general notice. This Brotherhood has had a working agreement
with the Intercolonial Railroad for
the past three years which seems to
have hr-en thoroughly satisfactory.
1 How is it that they have found It
possible to find n basis of agreement
if this Organization is so impossible
ae is Indicated by Mr. Price in his
statement of the reasons for the refusal of thc Company to recognize
the Organization?
With    reference    to   the   statement
class of labor, irrespective of loca-'
tion, it might conceivably mean a
reduction of certain men's wages but
does it appear likely that any res.
ponsible Brotherhood would draft
proposals that had no reference
whatever to the cost of living or local conditions?
W th reference to tho st itenwnt
that the Brotherhood Includes so
many kinds and grades of help that
it would be Impossible to denl with
the organization as a whole, I
would    point   out the obvious—that
vice from the C.P.H., It is silly for
me to try and tell tbem they are
not—if they are not getting satisfactory service, it te etfually silly
tor a C.P.R. official to tell them
that tbey are.
Thanking  you  for  the   courtesy   of
your columns, I am, Hir,
Yours faithfully,

"Prospector" brings returns
Sir Richard McBride has once more
been in the Bust conferring with the
Government ol Oanada upon a bud-
?et of topics aftectlnR British Columbia and Ottawa. Once more he haB
been manoeuvered and right-flanked
hy the newspapers, begirt hy hobnobbing politicians and conferenced
more or less by Oablnet Ministors.
There must be a reason for his popularity in Ottawa. The Premier—nay,
the political anil democratic dictator
of British Columbia—does uot come
Kast or cross the Atlantic merely
tor health or pleasure. When he
came back from Kngland laat year
few weeks before the culbute goneraio
of September 21, he wab connived at
by public opinion, some ol which
whispered through a megaphone tbat
he should be tbe man to lead the
' Selah.
This or any other spontaneous .le
llverance concerning Sir Ktcbard
who in terse communication!. Higus
himself "K. McB.," ought to be
somewhat ol a psalm. There is uo
clear way to interpret "Dick Mc
Bride" except through the lyric. He
is somehow a song and n dance and
an exceeding great stimulus in living
He ls the lumiuent, phosphorescent
hope-star of the 1'acitic— this is uo
mera Satnboyancy of the journalistic
imagination either, for behold what
the Premier of all Canada said about
him. before he became Premier or his
friend. Sir Richard
"A brilliant young Cauadian whose
name in British Columbia means to
the people of that Province much, tf
not all. that the name of Sir John
A. Macdonald meant and still means
to Kastern Canada."
Mr. Borden did not say all that
perhaps he thought. And lor the
matter of that, since his eulogy Sir
Richard has become to be the political figure he was a year or so ago
what a kodak snapshot may become
in a moving-picture show. When he
is interviewed by the newspapers now
It is not merely to say what he
thinks or knows about tbe Pacific
Const; but tersely what the wbole ol
the Pncitlc Coast thinks about the all
of Canada. Tbe Premier of British
Columbia is no longer a provincial
figure, going out with Irish ahilleiabs
to knock the heads off Liberal oppositionists. He is not only the moat
unparalleled Provincial Premier out-
boldening and out-generaling Sir
James Whitney. H. ia not only the
Progressive who believes that the
surest way to conserve the interests
of the Pacific Coast ia to develope—
without booming—British Columbia
He ia a man who th nks continentnl-
ly who, when he says something
about the Pacific Coast, refers to tho
problem of a united Canada in the
British Empire.
tt Is something of an open secret
and one of the amenities of public
1 fc nowadays, thnt air Wilfrid Laurier holds Blr Richard McBrlde in
very high regard. The reason ia not
political. It ls personal; and peraon-
al In a way that may yet mean a
great deol for the future nl Sir Richard McBrlde in public affairs.
And there ia a curious parallel be
tween these two leaders wbo have ao
many personal finalities in common.
Personal magnetism ■ much-abused
word—they both have lt outside of
politics; charm, affability, a rar.
smile and a tremendous gravity;
aristocracy of bearing; oratory and
the knack nf deep silence. One
French, the other as much Irish;
one representing a great race and n
province, the other n race less dominant in Canada, and n part of the
country beconi ng as Important to
the whole of Canada in progress as
Quebec is In history. And Sir Richard McBride Is personally just about
the kind of a lender imw that Sir
Wilfrid Laurier was when he became
leader nl the Liberal party in 18%.

one railway, bul moro railways
and railways with bonds guaranteed
at $35,000 a mile in order to give
British Columbia tile chance to grow
into what sli. wants to bo as tho
groat west gate to the Dominion ol
Canada. Though just as surely
there are critics who say aloud that
Sir Richard and his conferee are
wasting tho lile of the Province, caring nothing for posterity.
It's some few years since R.K., ol
JunglerBook fame, wrote a couple ol
luridly nielaucholy letters about B.C.
That was when he probably didn't
happen to run across Utchard McBride, or he would bave blue-pencilled his sibylline psuedo-jeremiads,
and reckoned thut probubly the man
who -was born and lived there most
of bis life might know something
worth telling hopefully about the
country ol the west coast.
This is all more or less irrelevant
prelude to the narrative about Sir
Richard and his visit East, laat week
He was a few dayB in Ottawa. He
went up to Toronto and expected to
be there a couple ot daya; but he was
wired to go home. In Ottawa he
gave a syndicated interview to several newspapers both in Ottawa and
Montreal. The thinga he aaid to and
heard from Premier Borden were not
published. The interview was mainly about the Navy* But it said nothing about what Sir Richard knows
concerning the Admiralty's views an'd
expectations more than he knew when
be was over there last year. He
knows; hut he dosen't tell it. Which
is where a premier differs from an
In Toronto, Sir Richard came and
went as quietly as Santa Claus. He
was at a hotel; but his name waa
not on the register. None of the
newspapers Interviewed him. Wben
the writer of this got first glimpse
of - him he was at lunch in the big
dining room. He was not alone.
Two other knights were with him.
Tho page brought him a brief note
asking for an equally brief Interview.
With true democrat c bonhomie be
scrawled io pencil—never bothers
with a fountain pen when he's traveling—"Shall try to seo you bora at 6;
30.   Thanks.   Il.Mcll."
At 6:30 the tolephone. Clerk Just
about to call oft* tbe number of the
room was suddenly arrested by the
'phone. Took and order—for sundries
room so-and-so—which was the suite
occupied by tiie Premier of British
"Oh!" to the Interviewer. "Did
you want to speak to Sir Richard
Cartwright? Number three booth.
Yes, he's in."
Details tbo order to the page.
Just at tho moment nround the
corner swung the compact form of a
man who knows unwritten books
about the wost und tho land question
Quite obviously he also must he look
Ing for Sir Richard (but not Cartwright).
"Sorry I can't give you more than
a minute by the clock," said the genial, smooth volco ol Sir Richard
down the 'phone. "I've been on tbe
edge ol a round-up all day; very busy
now—or will he In about sixty-seven
seconds. (Had to see you though.

anil saying to the elevator hoy,
"Do   you   know    what   room    Hir
RlcharilMcIlrlile is in?"
"No air, I don't know that."
Up he shot two or three Doora too
high.      Meanwhile    the   Interv ewor

"Well, primarily sir, concerning

Thia is becoming Irish. Sir R chard—oh, many a timo he must have
smiled when the weateners whacked
him on the back and swore they
uever would Dick bim again. He it
first and above all things a true son
of the West. Irish he may be as a
shamrock twined in a harp or the
poems of Tom Moore. Western he is
in all that makes him what be Is to
the Pacific Const and to Canada.
Not the feather ot a trill—whon he
could wear the robes of an Irish lord
or the garb of a Killarney poet.
Togged as a miner with pick and a
lantern; trigged as a cowboy with
shaganappi and shaps; or perked up
in the elegant severity ol swallowtail
and bulging dickle at a British banquet; he would still be more or less
plain Dick McBr de, able to fetch
trills by his oratory, or to yank off
bis coat and up with his shirt
sleeves and win an election in tbe
name ol a progressive British Oolumbla.

There's no use trying to illustrate
Richard McBride in the language ot
plain, personal prose.
"On the navy queation," he said,
seeming to glide in curves about tbe
room, "we're united in British Oolumbla." ,
"Both pol tlcal parties—?"
He smiled.
"There's only on* party out there
—on a busts of efliciency," he said
"But in that country you never can
tell what may happen over-night.

summarized as saying In tbe Canadian Courier last week Is worth re-

"At Revelstoke he declared: 'Let us
shortly ho able to lay claim to a
regular Canadian army and navy second to none In the world.'
"Hir Richard la not against an e-
mergetit contribution. Rut he would
ulao build up a Canadian navy and *
Canadian army,* Moreover the Brltleh Oolumbla Conservative Association endorsed hla attitude hy a apec-
lal resolution."
This is the pith and the marrow of
what be gave out in entenso to tbe
Ottuwn interviewers, and a summary
ot which appears at the end of this

_Tjff H-L France, swinging open the
l/mr gate that has been locked for so
w * many years against the descend
ants of the first Bonaparte, gesture amicably
to one of them—the most important—to approach, mth his wife and his child, and say:
France, it seems, may do it; everything
is possible in France.
It is the dearest hope of the man and
the woman most nearly concerned—Prince
Victor Napoleon and his wife* who was Princess Clementine of Belgium. In the years
to come, unless it shall have been already fulfilled, it will be the dtarest hope of their
child, the Bonaparte princess who was bom
to them uot quite a year and a half after
their marriage.
To a less degree, it is also the hope of
many, if not 'all, Frenchmen. For the sentiment attaching to the Napoleonic legend is
very dear to France, so intensely dear that
the very fondness with which it is cherished
is what alone makes the Bonaparte exile so
The fellows-citizens of Prince Victor are
like the man who has a pet lion. He is proud
and happy in its possession; but he feels it
is infinitely safer to love the lion from the
other side of the fence. Yet France has been
debating, only this summer, whether the lion
of the Napoleonic legend hasn't grown so
old that its teeth are gone and its elaws too
dull to nrnke it a danger to the republic's existence. There is a chance that the men who
constitute the governing party there may believe the attitude of the people toward the
agreeable potitkal system of self-ownership
is now so unyielding that even the head of
the Bonapartes can be allowed to come home
and plot, if he will, to his heart's content for
the revival of his great ancestor's empire.

Thut Isn't bemuse the prt7.cfln.hters have been

It has been tli!* unreliable mixture of doubt and
certainty which haa so long* kept Prince Victor
Napoleon  from living amid  tho scenes of his an
cestor.,' triumphs. And It la precisely the name mixture which now heartens hope that he* may have
another chance to return from his exile.
He still has a party in the pa trie i the Bonnpart-
Ists elect to the chamber deputies who are avowedly adherents of their cuime, and, while they !*-•■!*■-
late an well ss they can for the welfare of the country at Isrue, ihey never forget their allegiance to the
Interests of the family whose name perpetuates tho
height of France's greatness.
This summer tho Bonapartttt deputy from Cut-
vados, Fernand Kngerand, Introduced a bill which, If
pHi-fied, will repeal the law of banishment passed
twenty-six years ago on all descendants of families
who have reigned tn France or have no much as pretended to tlio throne. 11 embraces, necessarily, the
other royalties, who now represent older dynasties;
but Its aim Is specially the repatriation of Prince Victor.

friends to support the ministry that geeha the

to the chief magistracy, ho will govern with tlio republican.) who, for thirty years, imve rendered service (o tli-*- country? What more can he do to show his
faith hi u republican form of government?"
Nothing more, naturally, But tho apprehensive
ones recall that it wan juei such a. declaration of
faith ami loyalty which let Louis Napoleon be pi (tide*, t ..f France half a century ago, and proved to be
tho proverbial piecrust promise when he aaw hla
chance of pulling; off his coup d'etat for the crown.
The difference is that, since Franco remade itself
republican, a whole generation has been bom and
reared to manhood under th** republican regime, while
manufactures, trade and commerce have so com-
plctely absorbed tho nation Into their comfortable
prosperities that glory ami confluent, once so m-
alienahly part of tho Gallic longings, havo been replaced by a very son Bible desire to let well enough
alone. The traditional Napoleonic occupation, In the
eyes of tho average Frenchman, Is gone; none of
them feels tlm need uf King Stork; any old President
Log, who will let them sell stilts to Americans und
fend off the Germans, Is good enough for their dally
When Victor Napoleon was exiled conditions were
altogether different. Il* is 50 yeara old now. Ills
home was the splendid Palais Royal when the Communards ripped things apart In Paris and made If

away the last of the French revolution and himself to
an Imperial throne,
Prlnco Victor became a gunner In the- Thirty-second regiment of artillery. The rank he could aspire
to, in the ordinary course of promotion, was thnt of
corporal; and ha passed iils examination with promptness, and dispatch. Had tlm original Little Corporal
been In Victor's place, ho would as surely have declined  all  promotion and  would  lmvo  gone  right on

What the great Napoleon had the bruins to be afraid
of, his commonplace descendant hailed as his next

From an Unexpected
The   really   critical  moment in the i
Balkun-Turko   situation   seems to be i
rapidly approaching.    Over thi que..- j
tion    of    the   division of the spoils, j
Austria    and    Servia ure already nt
daggers drawn, and it will take the
finest of silken diplomacy  to prevent
a clash thut muy result in chaos for
the    whole    of  Europe.    This  Is  ju..t I
the    situation    the    powers expected
uud dreaded.    It is whut Oreat Brit- j
am,    through the aid of her all-pow- j
erful  navy  as an  instrument of  mod- :
ul    suasion,     ia  endeavoring   to   pre
vent.      If she gets the assistance she
should from the other powers BUCcesfl
is bound to crown lier efforts.

ol very material sort comes Irom a
quarter most unexpected Yesterday j
:it i socialist gathering held In Bwil
zertand u most remarkable resolu ;
tlon was unanimously endorsed. Pre
pared ns a manifesto, it called upon I
ull Socialists of America und Hurope
to resist any measures token by |
thou* governments. The text of the j
document is bo clear In argument
and sane In its presentation that it;
is well worth repeating here
"If the Balkan war should spread
to other countries it would be a I
frightful blow to civilization It
would be one of the greatest scan-1
date In history because of the diB- !
proportion between the immensity of j
tbe cast.istrophe and tbe uiumport- i
tance of interests on which it would {
be bused.
"The time bas passed when the
working classes of the world should
shoot down one another for the profit of the capitalists, tbe pride of
dynasties, nr the exieenc.es of secret
treatiesl If tbe governments suppress the possibility of evolution and
force proletariat to desperate meus-
urea, the responsibility for what bap-
pens will rest upon the shoulders of
the governments."
If this manifesto is generally subscribed to by the Socialists of Germ-any and other European countries
it is not inconceivable thut the governments of these nations will still
further hesitate liefore countenancing
war measures. For the Socialists
have become a very important poli-
cal body in many European countries
nnd their power at tbe ballot is
something not to be trifled with.
Thut the Socialists uro taking this
sensible view of th; present situation
in the Balkans ts likely to do an immense amount of good to their
catiHO generally, not only in Europe
hut in other countries as well. This
ia the sort of socialism that the peo
pie who are not Socialists can under
stand und endorse. And it goes to
prove ttiut there are many men who
call themselves Socialists and who
preach socialism as they understand
it, who know but little about tbe
thing or principles underlying it

The two incidents of thc present
week which have emphasised public
interest in the subject ol imperial
naval defonce are tbe masterful
speech of the First Lord of the Ad-
miralty at the Guldhull und the
statesmanlike Interview with Sir
Richard Mcliride reported in the
[■-astern papers. In the former Mr.
Churchill reiterated his previous
warning us to tho danger which
threatens the .empire from tho accelerated programme of tho German
Navy, and tho ncccessity for an even
moro generous expenditure by the
home government than has been authorized. Mr. OburehlU's speech com
iug as It does aftor a lapse of scvcrnl
months since hi; made tho one which
startiled the Empire, must be regarded nn the sober second thought of a
minister weighed with tho rosponsl-
b-illttcs of oltlce and keenly nllvo to
ibe necessities of the e.nne. It Is all
the more impressive because ll shows
that his views have survived tho
severest   critic om  and reman pine
lically unaltered. At tho name time
as tho report of Mr. OhurohlU'i
speech camo to hand telegraphic in
formation of tho Budget of Um (ler
nan Government readied Canada
The details show an increased expenditure ovor last yuur of $7-1,OUO,
000, of which $4,000,000 represents
the increase in ordinary naval expend ture and $5,250,000 tho incronue
In non recurring expenditure on the
Navy. Also an addition ol $45,000,
000 for siihmurlnos and $14,250,000

This latter Increase ts ruu.uired by
tho now military Kill, which calls
for   tho    organization   of nearly (inu

tlm week aflootlug thi,, tiiiost'lon bun

that once again tbe Premier has
voiced the opinion of the Province in
no uncertain manner. The Eastern
dailies recognise this fact, but they
go further and show quite clearly
that they regard Sir Richard as the
oue man in the Dominion who hus
had tbe Courage of his convictions
on tho most vexed question wbich has
ever agitated the public mind. Four
years of consistent, strenuous nnd
impassioned advocacy has effected
its purpose, and today Sir Richard's
is tho voice which not only the West
hut the Enst would gladly hear on
this rrent Imperial question. Ho
once more made it clear that the
inestion wns not one of party, but
of national tmportnnce and he reiterated bis oft-repeated statement that
"the Government could not do too
much to satisfy the people of British Columbia'." ft was the one
strong note whlcb caught thc public
ear, and the one strong expression of
opinion which has seized the public
imagination. All the landing Canadian Clubs in tho EnBt invited Sir
Richard to address them, and it is
to bo regretted that tho limited
timo at his disposal prevented him
from doing so in any single instance.
Rut it must be gratiflng to the people of Britlth Columbia to know
that tho man who bas championed
the cause so dear to the r hearts,
wtth such ability and consistency
since It lirst became a public quest
tlon, ts now regarded far beyond the
limits nf our Province ns thc leader
In a nut nnnl movement. Ho hns endorsed tho policy of the llrltlsh Columbia Navy l-0'igue, which voices
tlm unanimous opinion of this Province. If their proposals fall short
of tlm requirement the Province will
not have far to look far a champion.

Unfounded Suspicions
Shortly after marriage a young man
whose wife was very jealous, found
his domestic felicity often marred by
her suspicious nature. if he arrived
home a few minutes later than usual,
thero was always a scene.
He conceived a plan by which he
hoped to cure his bride of her silly
fault. lie gol. his friend, Jonos 10
send lilm a telegram: Meet Kilty tonight, 7..10. Victoria. After carefully
leaving the message wliere his wife
would find it he proceeded to his office .
His Irate spouse thrust the tele-
cram Into her pocket, and resolved
to spoil bis llttlo game, in a lighting
mood she repaired tu the station at
the stated time. There was her
husband waiting, but she kept out of
Into the station steamed the train,
the carriage doors opened, ami her
husband eagerly rushed up. Out of
a compartment stepped .Tone.-, with a
basket ou which was written "Kitty."
Lifting lhe lid, out popped a beautiful
Persian cat.
Turning round lhe husband came
face to faoe with the .aggrieved wife,
who smilingly received ihe lovely feline, and arm In arm lhe now happy

Lea on British Future
Famous American-Chinese Commander Writes
'Day of the Saxon"—Sees Great War
Ahead—Hour is Near
Oeneral Homer Lea—he ia an American citizen by nationality, but a gen
eral ln the Chinese army—has given
tbe world another remarkable book
which bas in it more tban a touch
of genius.
His "Valour of Ignorance" despite aome astonishing exaggerations
wae full of thought. Ia "The Day of
tbe Saxon"—by "Saxon" he means
the Anglo-Saxon, or Br tlsh branch
of that race—he analyses with extraordinary inaight andfreshnesa the mil
itary and naval problems tbat confront thu British empire. Tho book
ls dedicated to Lord Roberts. Disturbing though its conclusions are lt
doservea the attention of every Englishman, lf only becauae of the clearness with which General Lea states
the limitations of naval power and
force with which he sets forth the
menace from Germany.
It Is pervaded by tbe conviction
that tbe hour (or the Bupreme test
tor tbe British Empire— the test of
war —draws near, and that the dissolution ot tbat empire is at hand."
General Lea does not accept the
theories of the "Blue Water" school.
On the contrary, he holds that n
any conflict with a great continental
enemy British naval power la nullified by the Inadequacy of Britiah
The real cauae of conflict and danger to the British Empire could not
ha better stated than in his words:
"There can be no retention ot pre*
ent British sovereignity without repression of the territorial and political expanaion ot other nations—a
condition that must culminate tn
war, one war lf the empire la destroyed, a aeries if lt isvictorloua.
"The Intensity ol these conditions
Increases with each year of added
population; each year of argutnented
arts and sciences that open up to
mankind new wants, while at the
same tlm* diminishing tbe source ot
their supply; each year of new invention that shatters time and space
•nd crowds the greater nations, by
Irresistible and uncontrollable expansion, against the circle ot the British empire.
"The circle ot the |axon dominion
muat be broken or the greatness of
other nations be restricted,
"In   this epoch of war upon which
the empire ts about to enter hopes
ofpeace are futile; constitutions and
kings and gods are without avail,
for these are tbe old, old struggles
that govern the growth and dissolution of national life."
In the struggle with Germany,
which he believes to be Imminent
and Inevitable, the conditions are
one-sided and favor Germany. Nations governed by the popular will,
as Ronan wrote 40 years ago, and as
he repeats, will not systematically
prepare for war. Thoy allow "individual wants to take precedence ovee
the vital Interests ol national exis-
tance." A British naval victory will
only transfer the theatre of war
from the sea to the land, where the
British   Army   is   too weak to act.
"A German victory destroys tbe
(British) empire." Even lf tbe German navy is beaten England will be
"no nearer tbe destruction of German power and its potentialities for
world expansion than prior to the
war," because she cannot arrest "the
militant expansion ot the German
race and limit its suzerainty over
The vital points (or England ln
any conflict are the southern boun-
hary of Denmark and the eastern
frontier of the Netherlands. The absorption of Austria, Denmark and
Holland will deprive England ol all
chance of maintaining the balance of
power in Europe and will precede or
accompany Germany's attack upon
General Lea considers in detail the
precautions which are required to
meet such an attack.
"K the Saxon race ts to survive it
can do so only as awhole:(l)
Through the military and naval unification of the empire (2) the complete separation of the military and
naval systems from the civil government of the dominions and colonies;
(3) the Introduction ot universal and
compulsory military service among
tbe Saxons throughout the empire;
(4)all armies to be organized on tbe
basis ot expeditionary forces."
He discusses whether auch an organisation is possible, and points
out that the Britiah empire ropre-
aenta   the   weakeat   form of govern
ment, a federation of atatesl In
view of the home rule bill and the
current exaltation of the virtues of
a federal system, his conclusions,
which would be unhesitatingly adopted and accepted by aoldiere, deserve
special attention:
"Had the American republic (a
federal system) in the beginn ng of
its independence been subject to tbe
same dangers to which every nation
ls now exposed through the Intimacy
their intercourse and the shortness of
the distance that Intervenes between
them, the ropubl c would not have
aurv ved a single generation.
In exact proportion as science hsa
brought it into closer contact with
the rest ot the world, argumenting
its responsibilities and dangers, lt
has altered its political system, talcing away the sovereign rights of the
states. •«. The struggle to survive forced the American republic to
abandon a confederated form ol government.
"A confederation is an old Ignorance. It is a falsification of political independence and has no more
place ln a modern state than have
those othor blind errors nations have
put away forever."
And this blind error we are introducing in the United Kingdom at one
of the most cr tlcal momenta ot our
The one defect of a work which deserves to be regarded as one ot tlu
most notable contributions to modern political thought is that General
Lea (alls to tab: Into account the
fact that a power which aims at
world ascendancy, as Germany unques
tionably does, is liable to provoke a
world-wide coalition againet its aggressive purposes. The destruction ot
the British empire and the transference o( its dominions to Germany
would hardly be regarded as a gain
hy France or Italy or the United
States or even by Russia, though
General Lea decides tbat Russia
cauld best serve her own ends by entering a coalition against England.

Thomas to a Frisco correspondent.
Of course the eaatern yachtsmen

keen yachtmen, ought to be represented, and I think Japan and Australia could be induced to accept. I
