The Knights of Pythias held a very
pleasant social evening on Tuesday
In their hall. Unfortunately thore
was but a small attendance, owing
to tbe aiiualic sports being held In
the Young Men's Olub and one or
two otber attractions being held on
the same evening. Tables were spread
wltb very tempting eatables and
when those present gathered around
it formed an esceedingly pleasant
company. Various speeches were
made on the work of tbe Order and
the principles upon which the Order
was founded; also several members
favored ttie company witb songs, etc.
A cordial Invitation was eitended to
those not belonging to the Order ol
tbe Knights of Pytbias so to do. It
was pointed out In tbe addresses tbat
tbe corner stones on wblcb the Order
was founded were composed of
friendship, Charity, and Benevolence; and II the lessons taught in tbe
Order were faithfully carried out the

about the brutal conduct of the
police towards two Indluns 1 sup*

Mr, Howoess—I havo not rend the
Mr, Oalbralth read aB follows:
Several membera of the Order of
the Knights of Pythias visited Bon*
ners Perry last Friday to visit the
temple there, lt being the occasion of
the visit of tbe Spokane team of the
Dramatic Order of tbe Knights of
Khorassan. The boys were out lor
a good time and certainly got one.
To use one of tbe expressions of a
Bonners man "We had beard of the
boys of Cranbrook, but we were not
aware ot the fact thnt Crnnbrook
had sucb an energetic bunch, you can
take lt from me, although we have In
the city today such a lot of visitors j
Crnnbrook stands predominant in j
popularity, the citizens of Bonners
will for a long time to come remember having thle visit from the citizens of Cranbrook."
Tbe city was beautifully decorated
for the purpose, banners being rpreal
aoros. the streets, every store in thc
city had their windows decorated
with purple and yellow (the colors of
the order) the city for the day practically suspended all business ln their
desire to give tbe visitors a royal
time. A huge torchlight procession
took place in the evening to tbe delight of the children nnd citizens.
Honoring RJ. Green
Hon. Robert P. tlreen, M. P., will
receive n royal welcome at Kernie on

history of Western Canada. The name

The Race Meet
In tho advertisement for the grand
race meeting which we printed lasl

there was in the list of prises n

As our readers look over the list
of prises to be given on the 34th
one cannot help but be impressed
with tbe large amountr to he given

On Wednesday, on Baker Street,
there waa a scene transacted such
as we believe never was exhibited
in the streets of any city in Canada before. It was a scene of
brutality and brutish strength no
one would have believed could
have been witnessed in ft civilized
country, among clvili,.ed people,
by wh-t Is termed a civilized
polic* force.
The occasion was one which bad
for its object the arrest of an ignorant Indian, who abides under
der tbe white m:*n'« rule, yet does
not fully understand it.
Tbe circumstances arose from
the City Pound Keeper putting
Into the City found three stray
horses, one of which belonged to
the Indian in question, Mike Michel, tbe Indian, ilnding bis horse
in the pound, according to tbe
pound keeper's version, broke the
lock and took his horse out; according to Mike's version, ho took
o wrench from out of C. 8. Parker's barn, jumped the fence, took
the gate off its binges, and led
tbe horse away.
The pound koeper later discovered the loss and wcut after
Mike, and overtaking him, the
two of them had some words.
Constable Baxter coming upon
the scene arrested Mike, who succeeded in getting away and running to a point iu front of tbe
Y. M, O. A., where Walter Soden,
tbe pcund-keepei in question, retained him until he wua again
given Into tbe hands of Constable
Mention le here to be observed
that no attempt was made to put
on tne hand-cuffs which every officer ls supposed to carry, but
Constable Suitor led Mike along
until In front of the Imperial
Bank steps, another Indian, by
name Abraham, touched Constable Baxter on the arm wltb tbe
plainly evident intention of explaining the circumstances or remonstrating with him for making
tbe arrest.
Constable Baiter mistook Abraham's Intention, and turning
round, knocked him to the
ground, . hon he again struck the
Indian, as Baiter made pretence
to again strike, Abraham put up
-his arm to ward off tbe blow;
again Baiter knocked bis arm
down, but this time Abraham fell
on the Imperial Bank stone steps
where Batter struck sucb a blow
in auch a cowardly maimer, which
sent tbe blond flying about from
off tbe Indian's face in all directions bringing forth from those
standing by such eiclamations ol
disgust as should bnve made hiu,
refrain from further mutilation.
Chief Constable Dow coming on
tbe scene, he with Mr. Soden,
took charge ol .ne Indian and
Constable Batter the other, From
the Imperial Rank the prisoners
were taken down Baker Street,
wiib uot very gentle handling by
any means, until in front of tbe
Bank of Co amerce, when again
tbe prisoners received some of
the most brutish handling it was
possible io give a man. The
while Mike wns held, Mr. Soden
hit him over the bead with his
Sap three or four times until the
mau was narly Insensible to all
feeling; thou, becauso the man
was not able to barely walk several so called mon, perhaps for
the sake of notoriety, took hold
of Mike's legs and until tho police
station was reached, he wub car-
While Mike was being taken,
Abraham and Constable Baxter
reached tbe Post Ofllce steps In
front ot which Abraham tried to
get away and Ilnitor forced blm
on the ground where he again

and reilccts on tho administration of
Justice iu Crnnbrook.    Finding there j
was no move made I took the res- i
ponsiblllty upon myself, It was a difficult matter   to get in touch wiih -
the Department of Indian Affairs, so '
1  thought it better to write a his-1
tory  of  the   whole thing,   which    I
have dono, and 1 appear this mora-
Ing on behalf of the Indian Depart-'
ment.    I tnke the responsibility on ■'
ou myself, believing that tbo Department   will  approve of    lt.     I  bs e j
been for   43 years a resident in tins
district,  and at all  times  tried  to
maintain and teach tho Indians the .
obsorvntiou  of   the  law  and order.
They are a peculiar race, and I   am .
supposed to assist In every way the i

Q.   You are tho editor of the Pros !
A.   I am.
(J.   You have heard the article read -
by Mr. Oalbraith in regard   to I
the assault of a certain Indian'1
A.   Yes, sir.
I).   What do you say about it?
A.   Just exactly as it Is in the pa

A    From observation.
Q.   Where were you at the time?
A.   When  I first saw the trouble  I
wbb In the Y. M. C. A., I went' Q.
there on business.   I saw the In-  A,
dian come down from around tbe
corner running down the street; '
Soden caught him Just below tbe ' Q.
Scales, I saw   him come back,
bring him around to the Imper- j A.
lal Bank, and   after that   saw   c*.
just exactly as it has been read! A.
to you   now.    I was closo to'
him all the time from th) Imper* I
lul tinni.  to the Police Court.
Q.   What   direction   did they come
A.   Tbey came from tbe direction ol
Mr. Hunt's office.
Q.   How many Indians were there?
A.   I only saw one.
4.   Which Indian?
A.   I cannot say, there was such   a
mix up that I could not say, the
paper may be wrong us far   as
Mr.  Baxter taking hold of one
tbou the otber man, tbe evidence
was from   people who knew the
Indian, but tbe gist la just exactly wbat took place sad Baxter's brutality.
Q.   Where was Baxter?
A,   He came across from the Imper
lal Bank, I would not he suro,
be may have como from the other direction, I first saw bim when
he was just In front of the Y, M,
C. A., there was quite u crowd
ol people, 1 could not tell how
he came
Q.   Where did Baiter Ilrst take hold
of ths Indian?
A.   Just at the corner nf the Imper-
,   lal Bank.
Q.   Did the  Indian  come  from   tbe
A.   Soden brought blm.
Q.   Wns the Indian resisting?
A.   He was resisting nobody.
(J.   Did you only sen one Indian?
A.   Just as soon ns Halter arrested
that man lour or flvo came up
nnd  Baxter  did  tbe only  right
thing he could dn, he drew bis
gun, he hnd to put fear In tho j
hearts of the Indians, there wore
so many of tbem that ho did it
to frighten them away. I
Q.   Why did ho draw his gun?
A.   Thoy wero nround lilm in a menacing    manner,    had    stoues   In
their hands.
Q    You did not mention this In your
A. Those who camo around had several iiiiuii"i lu tholr hands, nailer drew his gun, and made
them ufi-ul.l nf him, they drew
back. Fred Ryckman spoke tn
thom nnd they went nwny leaving the one alone with Baxter.
Then as llaiter was leading bim | Q.
around the Imperial Bank steps
another Indiun came up. Baiter was leading this one alone
und whon he got past tbe bank
steps this Indian came and put
his hand on Baxter's right arm.
It Is pretty hard for an observer to notice whether he waB remonstrating or wanting to say
something to him. Baiter threw
him away from him, that was
quite correct.
i. That was an Indian*

I.   Thnt  was Abraham?

hold   of   tho   man's
Chief Dow led him along.   When
Baxter knocked the Indian down
wsb    the    brutality.    He    got
blm    down    and    punched  him
on      the      street.      The      Indian    attempted    to    rise,    he
got  up in a three parts standing position «nd put his arm up
to ward off Baiter's blow, Baxter gave blm another good bit
and   he   fell   ou   the   Imperial
Bank steps.     Witb all force in
his body Baiter hit tho Indian
on tbe steps a cruel blow, if he
had wanted assistance he could
havo got lt,   hut he   hit    him
again, giving him no chance to
du anything at all, then he   arrested him.    As far as handcuffing him, he never attempted to
do lt at all.    The usual means
Is to put the handcuffs on him,
lf he had been a white man   he
would bave done It.   They took
the Indian down and when they
got In    front of   the    Bank of
Commerce Soden   was   on    one
side and Dow on the other, and
was bitting him with his Sap
Was   tbe   Indiau   going    along
I cannot say,    tbe Indian  may
have been resisting.
You will say tbat  bo  was  not
resisting arrest?
I swear. As far as onvone could
see he was not resisting at all.
Were you following?
Yes, In the lirst place It was
from natural curiosity, but just
as soon as I saw the cruel manner Baxter was handling him, It
compelled me to follow because
I thought it was a thing tbat
should be stopped. When they
got ln front of the Bank of
fouunc.-ce soden hit him three
or four times, until tbe man
waa In an unconscious position,
and whllo In this position ho
would naturally slip. Two or
three laughed and said, "I am
going to be In on tbls," and
took hold ol tho man's feet.
You were just a bystander?
I had not been called on, during
ths whole time, there was no
one called.
Did the   Indian   make   any attempt to get away? I
No attempt.
No resistance?
None in any way, shape or form,
except tbat he may bave heen
holding himself back on his f-.et
as far as resistance waa con
corned he made none whatever.
Soden hit the man witb his sap,
and he could not do anything,
one man had bold of one hand
and the other had hold of .lie
other, so he could do nothing-.
He was walking along quite Ie
Quite decently, Just ths name as
I would If anyone arrested nt.
A person naturally holds hn".
but no one could have got away.
What attracted the great crovil"
The brutal way Baxter was tat
1ng those people down th.
street. He got In front of tbe
Post Office, and had tbe man
right on the street, whether he
did it on purpose or not I *nn-
not say, I was behind Chief Dow
and Soden. Baxter had the man
on the street and was poundl ig
blm for nil he was worth.
You think Baxter was giving an
eihibition of bis strength?
I do.
He knocked htm down?
When be wns on the ground it
seems to mo Batter wanted to
give an exhibition of bis strong.I.
and pounded him, everybody
could see for themselves that
from the Post Office to tbo Pollc
Court was blood.
Did Mike upset Soden, throw him
No, nobody wns upset at nil.
Did you notice him doing anything lu front of the Post Office
to Mr. Hoden?
No, be may have thrown blm nround with his arm, outside of
thnt I did not sec blm do anything. There Is quite a bit snld
about these Indians wbo were
arrested hnd stones in their
hands, neither of the Indians had
stoues at ull. 1 am talking
about what I saw from tlm fm
perlul Bank, neither hud stones
at nil. There wns a tall Indian
whn had n stone In h|s hand, he
carried It nearly to the Pollco
Court; be* did not threaten, he
railed to the Indian once or I
What did be say to the Indian
who was arrested?
One time in Iront nf tho Bank
Bank of Commerce this man
called tn the one who was under
amst, "Resist blm, fight him."
ail    llie i Q.
He carried  that  stone
way down the street?
Yes, sir.
Three or four others Uad stones?
Before they started they had
stones in their hands, but Mr.
Soden hit the Indian over the
head wltb his sap three or four
times until the man was almost
insensible, so bo would hate
dropped any stone he might
huve had.
Is tbat correct?
That Is correct
You say you saw ur. occostou ioi
tbo conduct of Mr   Hodeu?
Absolutely  none
Because the   man   was uot able
to walk several    so-called   mon
carried him to the station—you
referred to that in your paper?
Yes, they treated it as a joke.
You did not treat it ae a joke?
I did not.
What objection did you make?
I called out, "cut it short."
Cross-examined  by  Mr.  Oalbraith
Did be make any effort to desist;
No, sir.
Your consider that Mr. Baxter's
conduct was  most reprehensible
.,   Yes, and most shameful.
Cross-examined by Mr. Ryan:—
|.   Mr.  Christian,  you  quoted some
very severe comments upon me
with regard to my conduct   of
this esse.    Were you In Court?
i.   No, sir.
I.   Were you in Court on tbe morning of tbe trial?
i.   No, sir.

Yes, It was.

Very well, wbo was the person,
who was the one present?
Mr. Maurice Qualn and Mr. Phillips, also Mr. Bradley remonstra
ted as to the wav the court was

I absolutely deny thut statement, that then** was any re*
monstrntion aa to tbe way the
court was being held. Do you
know how long it took me to
dispose of that case?
1 do not know.
All of these statements were
founded on secondary evidence?
Yes, sir.

Visit Vancouver
Vancouver will be visited hy the
Rt. Hon. li. Ia. Borden during the
parliamentary recess this summer, according to the statement made to the
city council last night by Mayor Baxter. His Worship stated that he bad
extended to the Prime Minister an
invitation on behalf ol the citizens to
pay Vancouver a visit, and Mr. Bor.
deu had accepted, stating that it had
been bis intention to pay a visit to
the Pacillc CoaBt this summer, and 11
nothing unforssen prevented ho would
do so.
In tbe Mayor's opinion it waB als..
thought nd-.liable to extend an invitation to some of the Cabinet MiniB
ters and the leader ol the Opposition
and this will be done. Hon. Mr. Hazes, Hon. Robt. Rogers and Hon. Mar
tin Burrell will be asked to como to
Vancouver ot the same time as tbe
prime mlniBtcr, and a special Invitation to Sir Wilfrid Laurier to come
West will be extended. The exact
date of Mr. Borden's visit has not
yet been lixed.
Why cannot the requeut be made tor
the Premier to visit Cranbrook on bin
roturn East?

In an Interview whlrh lm accorded

hundred man which number would be
later Increased. That along witb them
ln the construction would be shovels.
That all payments for wages and
such like would be made through
tbe chartered banks having branches

shovels fed with the tlfty tons of coal

they bave arranged tor the construction ot at least one steamer at once

a little later on.
It Is understood that In order to

Knowledge Is Power
Some people liavo the knack ot always doing and saying tlic right thing
at tho right moment. As uu instance
ot this, says Lord Ilossmorc, ln bis
Reminiscences, I remember a dogfight in Bond Street, when two terriers belonging to two well-known lad-
ion engaged in a regular bloodt'uirlsty
The distracted ladles alternately
made tearful appeals to their favorites and to tlic bystanders, but just
as tho light seemed about to terminate iu tho sudden death of one of the
animals a blase looking individual of
tlio typo known as a chappie, elbowed
his way through the crowd with a polite, allow mo,
Iio calmly surveyed the two dogs,
which wero by tills timo locked in
each other's teeth; thon he produced
n handsome gold snuff box, and taking
a pinch from it dropped a little on
lho end of each dog's nose. A lit ot
snoozing t fumed, which compelled
llioin to releaso tliolr grip, and the
combat terminated.
Wltll n polite bow to the ladloB-, the
strategist walked leisurely away,
merely remarking with a lisp, Know*
ledge Is power.

A. Behind the Imperial Bank, Mr.

flrst thing wo saw was nn Indian
with a large rock In his hand, he
had hold ot tho man by tho arm. I
afterwards learned that thla party
was the pound keeper, lle wan pro
venting Ihls party from walking
down tho street, bunging on
to him. At ono lime he
thought the Pound Keeper mado a
movo to hit him, and ho hauled ol!
and tilt him over tho face, tknd with
tho other hand he kept buck the

Keeper Hoden moved ofl down Han

A   Yes sir. a pnrt of it.
g. Where did you lirst see the trouble?
A. 1 was at the station coming over and I saw u certain man running
alter the Indian, a Hindu running
with him. Tin* Indian stopped at
Uake/s office, a man stopped him.
Ho tried to bring him along, brought
umi to the Imperial Hank when Mr.
Baxter came along and tried to get
him along quietly, Another Indian
rushed up, clearly evident to drive
Bafftcr away. He raced In, Baxter
turned around nnd this Indian fought
,n the (Ineat puglisttc style. I was
i-i-jho ut hand.
q. Wuh that close to the corner?
A. YeB, of course Baxter was more
Mian a match for him. Baxter push
ed huu away and he slipped on the
stops of tho Hank. He gave him a
few slaps there. I waa by Baxter's
side, rend- to help him, the cowards
wore standing away. I do not. think'
Baxter gave him mote than he deserved.

A. Yea, I waa hy his arm, 1 was
there when Mr. Dow came up. Baxter tooi. tho Indian and walked
away with him. All I could see afterward.; was Home ton or twelve men
watching the man brought along. I
believe the police should be protected, Instead of slandered. Wc should
see that they ave protected, thla
thing in carried too far altogether,

the  Indian   had   no  more  chance  t.
resist than a child.

A He was hanetut' hack. Mr. Bas

trouble in managing Mike. I kn.iw'
nothing  about   Mike,  tho only  thin*]
I was interested in was Abraham and

meucement to the close.
g. The ouly think you think irapro*
per was on the steps'1
A. Yes. und after that he took him
by tho hair of the head and pulled
him around. I think that Mr. Baxter was no doubt angry and possibly
incensed at the Indian interfering
with him, and the tight prior to that
time mav have roused his temper.
Q. Did you see any other Indinn?
A. Ab fur as other Indians with
rocks, I only saw Abraham and
.Mike, Abraham did not have any
rock, as ho was struck and rendered
practically unconscious. 1 did not
see any other Indian except these
two. As lar as Mike was concerned
I had no sympathy for Mike as 1 did
not aee him abused.
Q. You did not aee whnt occurred
between Baxter and Abraham?
A. 1 saw it from the time Abraham
took Baxtei on the arm. I do not
know whether anything did occur between Abraham and Baxter or not.
I saw the Indian walk up and tak-.
Mr. Baxter hy the arm, then T saw
Mr. Baxter leave his prisoner and
drive Abraham back.

French Professor Says He Comes
From the Wolf or Jackal Families
It Beems to lie generally accepted
ly nuturnlJstB nnd the world at large
iimt the domestic dog is in some sense
a collateral descendant of ihe wolf or
.1ackU'. .
A professor In the Natural History
Museum lit Parts has communicated
results of his study of various canine
skulls to the Academy of Science. He
appears to have noticed certain peculiarities of growth which liavo hitherto
escaped zoologists, lie siates that
the sliti'.l of almosl every species of
wolf and jackal differs frpm lhe skull
ol' the shepherd dog to au extent that
makes 1 Impossible that this dog
should belong in the Ha me classification The skull of the Indian wolf on
tho contrary, shows some points of
resemblance. Tbls, Indeed, Is the
only ravage canine the top of whose
head projects like that of our dog.
Thorp are. moreover, other characteristics whloh the Indian wolf lias Iu
. ominoii with the dog, and which tbe
ordinary wolf does not share with
them, although his origin and
that of the dog huve long been
suppot-ed to be a common one.
Tbe conclusion of lhls scientist Is
that the Indinn v?olf is the progenitor
of tiie shepherd dog and tbe bloodhound. There were two primitive
races of dogs analogous to these
which were flrst domesticated ln Central Asia, whence they passed to Europe, and there seems no reason to

Old Trouble Disappeared    When   tho
Liver and    Bowels Were Set
Right by
Vou cannot make a greater mis-
lake ihan to think that Indigestion Is
confined to the stomach. It Is a
disease of Ihe liver and bowels, and
it ia only by getting these organs
healthy and active that you can ever
hope lo cure chronic indigestion.
Mere are two cases reported by
Mr. Skinner which tell of continued
failure to curt) Indigestion hy dosing
lhe stomach. Both were cured thoroughly by using Dr. chase's Kiduey-
Mver Pills.

If heaven be mine, I pray some humble part
To earth-Joys may ho given—

Across whose mossy walls the rolling
Like dream-songs, come aloud,

About Thunderatorme
Thunderstorms never occur tn the.
Arctlo regions. The nearer the
equator the more sever, are the elec-
trio manifestations.
In certain parts of Central  Africa
the average run of thunderstorms la
250 days per year, yet there are some
^.ry curious exceptions,      In Sumatra and Java, both very hot climates'
there are   only   ninety-two   storms
yearly, and in Borneo only about fifty. ;
Tha Gold  Coast  of Africa has onlv j
ubout sixty a yenr, which is loss than
OOOUr  in  Florida,  though   the  latter!
country la outside tho tropics.
Iu Java there Is a thunderstorm I
every day for five months. Perhaps
the most astonishing fact ln regard
to thunderstorms ls that tbe island ot
Mauritius, which is only 55u miles
east of Madagascar, has on au average only one thunderstorm in eighty
Yet In Madagascar the lightning Is
moro destructive thou anywhere else
lu the world, the annual death roll |
being over three hundred.
From a botanist's point of view,

Instances of plants that have boen

place iu which they grow.
A remarkable instance la the "bis-
uaga" or aa lt is commonly culled,
the barrel cactus which name serves
well to describe lis shape. Strange
to say, it ;-ttaina its greatest size In
tha sun-b'.ked deserts of Mexico,
where water ii scarce, and where it
stores up tnolBture to provide the
wer.ry traveller and hla horses with
the precious fluid. In these arid regions 'ne water supply sometimes completely falls, and the Indiun places
his reliance on thla plant, even to mix
his bread.
It vsrles In size, but the average
plant is about -if:, high and 1 Vaft.

The Opposition
More and more the Liberal opposition to the llorden naval policy
weakens. Day by day arise freak
proofs of the futility of the arguments ottered against it. It has nu-
ally como to the point where anj
sane man muat ho torced to ono of
two opinions—either the policy of opposition to the Borden proposals is
utterly insincere and merely playing
tor political effect, regardless ot the
welfare of the country aud ot the Empire, or thnt it is bated on an Ignorance of conditions both here unu
abroad so profound hh to warrant
tbe conclusion that tne advisers of
the Liberal party are entirely lacking in the qualities requisite for
Briefly, tbe Liberal opposition may
be stated under three heads. First,
thoy aay, tho llorden policy binds
Canada Lo „ scheme ol perpetual con
tributlono to the British navy, without any control over tho resulting
units of the navy by Canada. Second,
that the Liberal proposal of build
ing, equipping, and manning a ('una
dian navy would [jive more effective
aid to the 1-iupire and to Canada
than would the Loan Of tbree Bread
noughts to the Imperial navy. Third,
that there is uo emergency, and con
eequontly that an emergency gift— or
loan—is supeilluoua.
The first argument falls to pieces
on the most casual umi superficial
e:.ftminut'_n. Putting aside the categorical dentals ot any such pei man
ent contribution by those responsible
for the Naval BlU, there ia nothing
in tbe bill Itself, or In any references
to it made by the government and its
supporters which could possibly leaa
any sensible person to the conclusion
claimed by the Liberals, The secon;,
argument Is equally futile. It depends
entirely on the possibility of carrying out Bitch a scheme within a rea
sonable time. All thoso qualified to
eipresa -tn opinion agree thai Canada
is not in a position at the present
time to make any material  projrresa

of yachting, horsemanship, or any
sportBmanshlp, art, war, profession,

Tuna Angling Club of Santa Catal-
ina Island, Cat, is hound to thc use
of light rods and lines, and haudllues
are referred to as unsportsmanlike
and detrimental to the public interest.
"Live halt ought never to he
used," savs Dr. Edward Bradley; "to
take a living minnow, a worm, a
frog, to thrust „ hook througn lt and
then jerk it through tbe air ln order
that lt may wriggle in agony until
lt attracts the game, is a wanton
cruelty, and there ls nothing sportsmanlike in fishing of this sort."
Tbe angler above all other men
shudders at tbe suffering of any living thing, and the death of the game
he seeks to him ls „ sad part of his
favorite recreation. The skilful man
uses an artificial fly or other artificial lure, and dispatches his victim
as soon as possible wltb as Httle suffering ub need be,
"With an artificial fly as tho
halt," says JameR II. Cornoll "nnd
thiB bait secured to tho Ilk of a Hsh
(no angler hooks his game in any
otber part) there Is no cruelty in
Ishlng, as Ashes hooked in this wny
do not cipcricncn any pain, and thc
artual death of the fish in the hands
of a practical and humane person is
in accordance wltb tbe law ol Nature."

Scotland Yard regards Tuesday's
attempted bomb outrage at Bt.
Paul's seriously. The majority of
the suffragettes' bombs discovered
have been dummits meant to frighten and not to explode. The St.
Paul', bomb und the bomb left in the
home secretary's office were, however, exceedingly dangerous.
Today an army of detectives nre
searching high and low to discover
tho makers. Every dealer iu explosives and chemicals has been oxamined
and his records of customers searched minutely.
The attempted outrages have had
a marked effect on public sentiment,
almost wholly killing sympathy with
the militants. Thero are many sign-i
of ugly temper of the populace, which
will almost certainly find dramatic
expression should the bomb outruns
he consummated and causo loss ot
Suffragette leaders, who this week
lorcod the minister to release them

when hnpritaoued on remand, anticipated this outburst of public ang-u-
with indifference,
The government, hna withdrawn claim
thut it can suppress their newspapers
altogether, because some issues contain illegal matter, and Tbe Suffragette appears -this weok ns usual. It
breathes throughout a note of defiance, declaring that the Women's
Union has beeu serengthened by the
persecution of Mrs, pankhurst, and
"We shall pass in triumph through
this new crisis."       K
Those best acquainted with ibo
militants predict that we are on the
eve of serious outrages which will
leave behind anything yet known*
Thoro are many rumors of minor
dissensions in thc cabinet. Lloyd
George's InditicretlonB over American
MarconlB are disliked by his fellow
' ministers, but Lloyd George's Influence and authority are sufficient tu
keep grumblers in subjection.
John Duine hns aroused much
denunciation from Liberal workers
outside by his recent action in opposing tne housing bill. The Dean
of Lincoln, a noted Liberal church
man, describes his act as simply
lur all social reformers, nnd speakers at the Women's Liberal Federation this week declare he blocks the
way to reform. Burns' successful
position of the recent housing bill
was due to his objection to share the
authority of his office with the housing commissioner-** appointed.
P&rliamt-ntarily, Mr. Burns has undoubtedly a part of growing difficulty to play in the cabinet. His own
instincts still becoming more conservative, he is regarded by some of hia
colleagues with indifference, his splendid routine work receiving little ree-
cognition. Most urgent reforms under his department have been kept
back by the congested state of parliament. Unless, however, he can
forge to tbo fiont nest sesslou his j
reputation will suffer !
Germany's Militarism
The Mystery of Her Huge  Expenditures on  Both
Army and Navy
Throughout tho civilized w0rld,
newspapers and public men are bun-
Uy engaged in speculating iu an effort to solve tho mystery of why tier-
many, while milking tremendous ef
forts to create a gigantic navy, hnB
so suddenly decided to increase ita
standing army and general land defences ut uu unprecedented cost and
ou an unprecedented scale. Since the
new German army bill was Ilrst discussed, almost every sort of explanation of It has boen given. Of late,
the prces of the world, falling to find
a logical reason for this tremendous
expenditure, when no war Is threatening, has come to the conclusion that
Germany ls merely suffering from military madness, tn which it Is incapable of sane reasoning concerning its
true position.
It seems to me thnt tbls ts u vory
unjust and unreasonable conclusion.
The German people are not of the
hot-blooded kind. They arc uot givon
tu llts of national insanity. On the
other hand, they are a purely scientific, culculatiug people, who do noth-
to spend live hundred millions within
ihe next few years on raising the
strength of her laud defence** nnd
forces to u heretofore unheard of degree. II no fear of Frunce and Germany were entertained—that Is to
say, no fear ol their agression— il
seems certain that Germany muBt
contemplate tbe approach of a condition where Russia and France will he
forced tn become aggressive by land
nnd Great Britain to follow BUit by
sea. U't us think for a moment of
whnt could create such a condition.
Austria aud Hungary have beeu
hold together by nut too enduring
ties for a very long time. First, by
Hungary's ueed of Austria's strength
while the Turk was powerful and aggressive at hcr back. The Turk's
power in I'lurope has now been crushed. Hungury Is able to stand alone
without fear, as an Independent kingdom. The Hungarians ure hold to
the Austrian* only by a frail tie—
that tie, the life of the aged Kuipci
ur. Francis Joseph will die one of
these days, and Hungury will desire
can be Germany's reason for building
u great navy In opposition to the
llrltlsh navy, which It can never hope
lo surpass, now that Great Britain
is ou her guard? Why is it that the
ships of this navy hnve coal storage
space only sufficient to enable tbem
to make short cruises? The most
most obvious explanation seems to
be that this navy is built for the
purpose of attacking Great Britain
Uut ns It would obviously be unwise
to attack Groat Britain, which poss
esses so enormously superior fleet thia
theory does not appear to ho altogether sound. It seems loss sound
when wc look at the recent provision
for enormously strengthening the
German army. Surely it cannot be
maintained that this army is created
as a menace to Great Britain! Sor
can the building of new forts and tb
strengthening of old ones be regarded
as a menace lo the Integrity of the
British Umpire. It might be said
that these measures are taken as a
means ol defence against France and
Lloyd Gcorge'B remarkable appe.l j Russia. But France nnd Russia diB-
to the Commons that both parties ! i.layed uo nggresBivone_ so long as
ng without a reason and the most j to break loose.    When that break up
painstaking preparation.  What, thou,,comes, will It be unreasonable for a
should unite in treating the measure
for reforming the condition ol ihe
peasantry as a uutk*nal non-party
ty question and join in a common
measure, has had a mixed receptl m.
Homo Unionist organs describe It .ii
gush. The real difficulty of such union Is that the parties differ ln their
main policy, the liberals advocating
a minimum wage for farm laborers,
and the Unionists favoring an enormous Increase ln peasant pi op-ietors.
—Free PreBa.
Germany maintained her old status
as the greatest military power on
earth. They did not increase their
armies or make provision for Increns
ing thorn until Germany suddenly decided to raise two hundred and fifty
great neighboring empire, like Ger
many, to undertake to absorb cer
tain fragments of Austria—say, tbe
Austrian German states? Let us suppose this is to be the ense. These
states are practically German in everything but name. It Is doubtlul if
thoy would seriously object to Ger
man absorption. Witb German support of Hungary's strike for independence there would be no Hungarian
opposition to Germany's plans. But
how about Russia, and France and
Greut Britain? Would they sit Idly
hy while the German Umpire extended
itself to a most dangerous degree of
power? No. France has not forgotten Alsace-Iaorraine. France would
rather fight than permit German expansion. Ilussln would be equally
Jealous—mid, besides, Russia might
cast h greedy eye on certain of the
Slav states of Austria-Hungary.
Oreat Britain would be scarcely less
willing thun either France or Russia
to permit the expansion of Germany.
So, now, we have a little hypothetical case created in which a powerful
German tleet, concentrated on the
German coast—a fleet composed of
ships with Kir*lall coal bunkers—would
bo very useful for defensive purposes.
We also have a condition in which an
all-powerful army, a number of new
forts   and   re. strengthened   old ones
nlllion dollars hy n Bpeclal tax and  would he quite useful, as well.
To be sure, it would be u stupendous undertaking for Germany to at-
tempt to fight Russia and France on
laudand Great Britain on the sea,
single-handed. But German diplomacy and tactics, it must be remembered, are not unskilful. France
would wink at a great deal, and
probably uot interpret her engagements with Russia and Gre.'.t Britain
too strictly, if Bhe were offered, the
restoration of Alsace-Lorraine, The
people of these provinces have never
liecome Germanized nnd never will become German. It is almost impossible lor nny nation to assimilate
any considerable number of Ftcnch-
men. Germany has found out to her
annoyance and disgust. She would
rather have territory of half the area
ol Alsace -Lorraine taken from the
German states of Austria than two
Alsace-Lorraines. II, tbeu, diplomucy
should dictate Lhat France be pucl-
tted, France could utmost certainly _>?
pacified and Gormany be freed from
French interference while Germany
added an extensive area t0 her territory.
With France neutral, Germany
would have no great reason to fear a
contest with Russia and Great Brl
tain. Hcr great new army and new
army and new fortresses might reasonably be expected to tnke care of
Russia. Her powerful navy, concentrated on the North Sen, on a coast
that is dangerous--because of Its
shoals—to the operations of foreign
ships could he counted upon successfully resist the attacks of a navy fifty per cent, stronger than that defending the German coast. Thus the
reason for this groat German fleet,
with small coal bunkers, is not ao
obscure as it tirst seems.
This theory may be criticized on
the ground that this absorption ol
thc German states of Austria would
be an unprovoked attack upon a
friendly nation and un ally. This Is
not a serious objection. Germany
has never in her history uttacked any
nation without carefully preparing
the way by cultivating n warm
friendship with thnt nation for a
number of years. Bismarck wbb the
prince of this type of diplomacy.
There is no reason to believe that
Bismarck's example bas bcen forgotten. In any caso, it is at least a
logical explanation n[ thc stupendous
military and naval p'eparntions ol
Germany, which have not boen heretofore been made reasonably clear,—

DISCUSSION between Mr. Galbraith
and the
Mr. Galbralth:-
I do not want to drag down thc
officera oi the law, it is part of the
Indian nature to fluetnin their right
to liberty. Everyone will say that I
have taken thla stand. 1 will nay
tbat I will guard carefully, bb I am
duty bound, the rlghta of the Indian
While they do not understand the
law, the law is made for

Mike might he better than he is, 1
regret that thiB oeoured I have no
charge against Mr. Baxter, and never
spo'te to him until today. It would
appear that there Is a diversity of
opinion regarding hlo action In this
.uutter. Mr. Chrlatlan la poaltlve
that Baxter used unn-ceaaary violence and brutality with regarde to
the treatment of tbe priaoner. >ne
very honorable man, Jobn Smith,
aaya diatlnctly that Mr. Baiter did
uot exceed his duty. Wo have a law
yer, Mr. Macdonald, he says thut
Baiter did eiceed hia duty. I could
„'o on showing the for and against
the action ol Baxter. Ab far ae the
Chief ia concerned, I hi)ve had a ood
deal to do with Mr. Dow on Indinn
matters, we have conaultod a great
deal. I know this much, tbat Mr.
Uow ia doalrloua of giving tbo Indian the best of It. I know on many
occasions when tho Indinna have violated tho law that he hue gone to
ihem and advlaed them.
As far as bc is concomed I have
alwaya found that he haH alwaya
done his duty faithfully.
Krom the evidence it would appear
that Baiter lined unnecessary vio
lence in the arrest. Theee Indian.

of miles of railway iu the northwes
tern  United  States  will  be operate.;
by means of electric locomotives. Al
ready  arrangements  have  beeu  com
ideted    for    electrifying    some    4.-.I
miles oi  the Chicago,   St.  Paul an
Paget Kound railway,  and It is sta
ted that the company has appropri.i
ted   $7,600,000 for this work.
The electric locomotive has alreaii,.
shown marked efficiency on the moun
tain railways.     As a matter of fait
the limit ot capacity of a number ol
American lines have 1> nj been deter
mined in large measure by their abil
ity to got trains over some of the ox
tussive giades on their mountain see
lions. From two to tive steam loco
motives of the heaviest type are re
quired   to    haul   trains   over    thes*
grades, and a speed ot seven or eight
miles an  hour  is   seldom  exceeded.
Where such grades pass through tun
nels   the   ditliculty   is   Increased,   for
the steam and smoke from the loco
motives coats the rails with .   gren
sy   soot,    which    makes    the   wheels
sii!-,  and  ttio heavy  tumes from  the
coal or oil  fuel  make operation   e
matter of  real  danger  to the   tram
Witb the installation of electric lo
comotjves all the difficulties and don
gerw arising from soot have been overcome and  trains are  hauled    ovei
these portions of tbe ro'id ut double
the  hest  speed    possible  for  t-t.ntti.
The  100 ton   electric    locomotive    i*
suitable    for    the    heaviest    railway
traffic, and one nf  them  will "back"
the heaviest steam locomotive,
For the  handling of freight   tri-inf*
there  are  electric   locomotives    thnt
weight 1H0 tons nnd which have u
Unctlrn power of BO-OOO poinds star
ting. The motors are built in two
Sections, each of which weighs 90
ton*. By placing together _ pair ol
these 90-ton electrics, both under tht
Ci ntrol of one man, the engineer has
under control 8,600 horse-power, oi

pounds. Onn ol Vie huge Mallet
steam locomotives weighs 280 tons,
but of this weight only 167 tons is

cuiA'de of only 71,000 pound-* tiar

Tho elecLtlc locomotive has undoubl I mot with

ronton tor the poople retaining con be has had some curious experiences,
trol  of  hydro -electric  development     I PrlnCCHB Henry of Bnttenlieig and he.
Hon of a man's soul.     It wae upon
j   his  return    visit   to    his  birthplace
l hat   Sir   Thomas   l.ipton   discovered
lhat  the   'tide m   the affairs of men
, which,  taken at  the  flood, leads on
o fortune."     With the five hundred
| lollars  he  had  saved   in   America  be
i  ipened  a  shop    in    Stobcross-street.
j   ll.isgow,   and   here    he   lived   behind
| ' ho  shop,   scoured    his    own   floors,
lressed  his own  shop  windows,  and
. jven delivered his own gomlH.    "No
redlt   and   no    debt"    was Thomas
Llpton's   motto,   and   so  far  he  has
ni-nd none better.
;    Tiie  secret   of his  success  Is easily
IHcermble   In   the ser.otisness   of his
: application   to whatever   he has   In
! band.  Kor years  he  was nt his bust
j ness  at   six   o'clock    every   morning,
and   did   not   leave   It   till   midnight.
; The  l.ipton   millions   were   not  built
. .p   on   tbe  eight  hours  a   dny   plan,
-and the o'erleaping ambition of   the
\ Upton concern can be imagined from
j the   fact   that,   scarce   a   week   pa-ises
j but a new   l.ipton facia sign does not
; appear  in   somo  part   of  the  British
, Kmpire.    Another secret  of Sir Tho
-lias's HiicresH lies  in  his elimination
■ of the middlemen    By himself manu*
; 'acturing the vast rtuantitle-t of jama,
, pickles and other comestibles Bold at
: iis establishments, millions of Inter
mediate   profits    are    saved    for   the
concern  he  rules yearly.     Today Sir
rhomas  is the  largest  owner of Toa
dantatfons In Ceylon, and the great-
st employer of labor there    In that
.t*l ind   he  also    possesses  coflee  and
cocoa plantations,  and has magnlfi
cent   warehouses   In   Colombo,   with
headquarters In Calcutta.
Sir Thomas  has been  breaking  re-
. i'ords all his life.   One of  tbem was
. uis cheque for  £60,618 Us 6d., which
. :.e  once  paid  over  to  His Majesty's
Customs,     and     which      represented
clenrance on close upon .-t.000,000 !be.
1 of   ten.     It   is  safe   to  say  that  no
1 other  commercial   man   has attained
j fame  and   fortune  ho   rapidly  as be.
t U fifty years of age he WAS able tu
look bnck upon a career of absolutely  colossal  proportions.    He  had re
j COlved   a  Baronetcy  from   Ins  rfover
* oign;   he  Imd  entertained   King  Ed

deigned to take R four-penny meal at

Don't think that you must usi a large quantity of cement in order io
win a prize. The quantity of cement used does not count in Classes "H"
and "C."   Many of last year's prize winners used very Httle cement.
When you enter the Contest, you have a clianee to win a cai
prize of $50 as well as the certainty that you will add a piemqntut
improvement to your farm. If you haven't a copy, be sure and ask for
our book, "What the Farmer Can Do With Concrete." It will nnt
only suggest many improvements that you can use in entering the Contest,
but will tell you all about the use of concrete on the farm.

vantage of tho half holiday accruing
to him through tho Shops Act, and
mado nn extra call on tho Wednesday. As ho was ushered ln Miss

The Budget
Ottawa—The members of the
House of Commons vol n surprise today In tbe form of Hon. W. T.
White's annual budgot statement.
lt wub uot expected until Thursday, but owing to the sen.ma illness
of his mother, which necessitates his
departure from the capital, the minister, with the consent ot the Opposition, was permitted to make his
st.itement today without giving notice.
Tbe most striking feature of the
statement Is a record surplus of ihh,
(100,000. This Immenae surplus the
minister estimated will allow thc
government to pay 131,000,000 of
special espenditure chargeable to capital account, provide tl,300,000 (or
sinking fund, milking a reduction ol
thc national debt.
Hr-VKNUi, INCREASES 132,000,000.
The total revenue of tho fiscal year
just closed Mr. White placed at »1_,-
2(0,000, an increase of more than
32,000,000 over the revenue of the
previous year, and a sum equal to
the entire revenue ol the Dominion
twenty years ago, Tbe surplus lust
yeur wub slighll> undor '38,000,000.
For tlio current fiscal yenr, which
wlll end on March 31, .014, Mr.
White estimated a totul expenditure
ol ubout $1711,000,000. To this must
tie ndded tbo supplementary estimates
yet to bo brought down, railway subsidies, etc.
There wns also the num thnt would
bo necessary to Btart, construction ol
the three Dreadnoughts. Tho total
estimated expenditure would be close
to 1200,000,000, though u considerable
amount ol thle would not bc spent:.
The minister believed that the revenue for the current year, despite the
large proposed expenditures, would
meet all ohligutlous.
The minister made some references
to tbe strlugent financial conditions
which existed during the year, and
predicted thnt improved conditions
would prevail before many months
had elapsed.
Ae a preliminary to announcing
several tariff changes, the minister
of finance expressed the opinion that,
having regard for the prosperity of
the country as shown by the latest
trude statistics, anything In the nature of a general revision of the tariff at the present time is not called
for, and would be contrary to tbe
general Interest , I the country. He
then announced tbe following rciluc
tions in the tariff
The duty on cement Is lowered
from 12 * to 10 cents u cwt., or
from 43] to 33 cente a barrel.

lowered from lln 1 cents, sad Intermediate from 11 to 10 cunts a
Typesetting aud typecasting machines upon which the general tnrlff Is
now 20 per cent., the Intermediate

lug moro than t3,000, which has been
