Passing of the Late Mr. Eyton
Last week we were only able to
give a brief notice of the death of E.
Etemla-Eyton, who for the past two
years had heen a member of the Civil
Service In tlu.1 Cranbrook Government
Agency, and-was slated for the position of deputy assessor aud collector
and mining recorder.
He died on tbe 4th inst. after a
gallant struggle lasting over six
weeks, but his sickness was one that
allows of no cure and be succumbed
to its effects only when It wat impossible to continue. The funeral
took place on the 10th Inst, from the
Church of England, the vicar, Rev.
E. P. Flewelllng, conducting the
service, being assisted by the Rev.
H. Tupper, precentor of Worcester
(.athedral, England..* The beautiful
service was reverently followed by a
large number and the solemnity of
tbe occasion accentuated by the dignity of Its rendition.
There were many beautiful wreaths
aud llowers, showing the estimation
in which the deceased was held by
his mnny friends.
Brought Up us be was in environments entirely different from what
prevails here, Mr. Eyton adapted
himself admirably to the measure of
this country, and although the cnuse
of bis coining to Cnnada was n great
misfortune tbnt would hnve wrecked
many men's lives, he never complained, but did bis work thoroughly and
conscientiously nml on account of
his courtesy and good temper nnd the
interest be look iu his work, wns well
liked hy all with whom he came in
coiit.net, and there ts ni doubt but
that he would have vvoitted his way
well mi to the top of tbe service if
death had not stopped in ami cut
short a bright career, The sympnthy
of his circle of friends and in fact of
all goes out to his widow, who so
devotedly attended hliu dny and
night since tit.1 commencement of his
illness and who hns shown a dignity
and a fortitude in sorrow lhat tins
been an inspiration.

S. E. Kootenay Oil
Special Article to " The Prospector "
Iu Southeast Kootenny you will
lind a large number of old time prospectors who have faith in the oil-
bearing district of the Flathead vnlley. It was in 1885 that a number
of prospectors, headed by Frank Mc-
Cabe, crossed the RockieB from Alberta and went into the Flathead valley and located the tirst oil claims.
The story of these early day prospectors follows: Having found samples of oil in the camps of the Stony
Indians, who used this oil for medicinal purposes, they inquired where
it waB found. On ascertaining that
it was across the mountain in the
Flathead, a prospecting party was
made up, who, following the old
Kootenay trail, crossed the mountains entering the valley from the
east. They found the oil seepages
and made some eight or ten locations, but owing to the wildness of
the country, the difficulties presented
and the utter lack of transportation
facilities nothing was done except to
announce the fact that oil seepag s
had been found and that the oil was
of a superior quality.
It was in 1891, that tbe late Br.
Selwyn, then director of the geological survey, visited the district with
Mr. William F*rnie, who was the discoverer of the famous coal ureas of
the Crow's Nest Pass.
Mr. Dawson also made a detailed
examination of the geology of the
mountains, valleys and creeks in 188"»
and reported on the oil seepnges of
Kishenehna creek, and this report
was confirmed by Dr. Selwyn who
telle of tlndlng seepages ou Sage
He tells of collecting samples of
crude oil from seepages through the
sand and gravel in thc bed of a
stream live miles east, of tlqv summit. In tbe Flathead valley he speaks
of oil on Kishenehna creek; on the
edge of a beaver dam pool there were
ledges of hard, dark-blue shale. Lifting tbe layers of this at and below
the water, a quantity of dark-green,
circular patches of oil rose to the
surface, and a precisely similar result followed by stirring up the mud
in the bottom of the  pool.
Sage and Kishenehna creeks are the
only two creeks or streams upon
which oil has been reported as actually found. These two creeks are
parallel and cloBely adjoining, being
only separated in tbeir upper reaches
by a spur on the main range. The
seepage of oil occurs on both creeks
just where the mountains give way
to the ancient wide valley of the
Flathead, and lt is quite certain that
the geological formation are the
same in both .these creeks. ThiB fact
is immediately visible to the eye
from the upper benches of the river
valley, from whence the view obtained of the strata exposed on the ends
of the mountain runges shows them
to hav-3 beea continuous. The valleys of these two creeks have been
cut hy erosion, there being no evidence in the lower portions of these
vnlleys of any faults, folds or anything more than a slight bending of
the beds. About three mileB above
the oil on Sage creek there is evidence of what appears to bc a fault
crossing the creek and affecting the
strata; the mountains here are sheer
nnd bare, enabling the formation to
be seen, while on Kishenehna creek
the hills are not steep and are covered with slide material, obscuring
the view of the various strata except
upon the peaks; but the same fault
probably also extends across the valley- „
The so-called "nig Oil Spring" on
Snge creek occurs some 12 mileB up
from the mouth of the creek and
about a mile above when the stream
leaves the mountains and enters the
flat depression of the Flathead valley. The spring is found in the brush
about a quarter of a mile from the
trail, at the base of the mountains
to tbe north of the vnlley, and near
ti small lake aud marsh,'.which lie at
an elevation of some 200 [eet above
Lhe stream and 4,400 feet above sea
level. The ground to the north of
tbis lake is marshy and full of
springs of water which go to form
the lake. About. 100 yards from the
base of the mountain, ou a knoll
higher thnn its Immediate surroundings, there Ib issuing a good-sized
spring of water, and beside this
spring were found several poolB covered with thick, dark-green oil. The
(dl being lighter than the water accumulated nearest the highest point,
tbe water tlowing ofl below. Tbe oil
had accumulated here in several .poolB
which covered an area of some 50
feet diameter. As the oil spreads itself out over the face of the water,
all these pools have tbe nppearance
of being entirely oil. Tn nppearance
it is lighter thnn the crude oil of
Pennsylvania, probably containing
less tnrry matter and being richer in
the more volatile constituents. The
following are the results of an exam
ination of these oils:
1. From tubing of bore-hole in Alberta, 5 miles east of .summit— Specific gravity 879; degreeB beaume, 38;
remarks, dark-colored, heavy oil,
commenceB to distill over at 90 degrees.
2. From seepage at same point-
Specific gravity, 879; degrees ban mo,
3. Prom "Big Oil Spring" on
Sage creek in Flathead—Specifie gravity, 828; degreeB baume, 40; remarks,

off at 90 degrees, 90 per cent, of oil
distilled off below 200 degreeB, leaving 10 per cent of thick, dark oil
containing tar, which latter Ib estimated 5 per cent.
4. From bed of Sage creek, near
above (LecMe Bpring)—Specific gravity, 818; degrees heaume, 42; remarks, light amber-colored oil, commenced to distill off at 90 degrees,
97.5 per cent, of oil distilled ofl at
below 185 degrees, leaving 2.5 per
cent, dark, heavy oil containing some
It will be noted that of these samples 3 and 4 are of exceptionally low
j Bpecific gravity, and that sample 4
.conaistB almost entirely of the lighter constituents of petroleum, very similar to tbe oil now being obtained
from the famous Dingman well nt
The oil rises through a black
marsh earth, and it is difficult to tell
how much of Its color it owes to
this source. ThiB spring can only
be described as an oil seepage, the
quantity of oil therefrom is small,
but there is every Indication of quantity at depth.
The pla*j at which the oil iB found
is at the top of an anticlinal in the
formation, that is to say, at tho
highest point in the bedding of the
rocks, the axis of the anticlinal crossing down the creek in a northwesterly direction. From tbis point the
beds dip up the creek to the northeast and also down the creek to the
southwest. The beds can be traced
dipping to the northeast for about
three miles, at first at a very flat
angle, but gradually increasing until
the dip reaches about 35. At this
point a fault occurs with, to the
east a different dip to the rocks,
while further up the creek this is followed by other faults; hence it may
be said that the entire valley, twelve
miles north, witb a width of several
mites is the possible field of accumulation.

Through Two Disasters
London, June 10—Wild scenes were
witnessed at the Exchange station nt
Liverpool yesterday on the arrival of
the survivors of the crew of the Empress of Ireland, who had been
brought home on the Corsicnn. The
station had ho?n packed by a dense
crowd for several hourB, nnd when
the train steamed in from Glasgow
at 7 ojclock there was a rush to the
carriage doors. The police and railway officials attempted to hold back
th-.' crowd, but were powerless.
Among the Liverpool survivors
who reached home last night was
William Clark, who has had the terrible experience of passing through
two of the greatest sea tragedies
known. He was fireman on the Titanic, and filled the anme duty on the
Empress of Ireland. His first
thought when they were struck went
hack to those terrible scenes on the
Titanic, It was his first voyage on
the Empress of Ireland, and of course
ou the Titanic, which was on her
mnlden trip. He added "there is a
sort of superstition among sailors,
nnd I believe It applies ou land as
well tbat the third time ls fatal, but
thut does not worry me. I nm going bnck to Liverpool to lind n job
ou anothor steamer."
Clark said, in reply to (inflations,
thut he snw none (tf the crew neglect
his duty, or who wns not trying to
save others Immediately nfter tho
great plunge ennie.
"I propose to sail the Shnnii'ock

"I do not propose to ask the New

privilege of towing the 8hamrock. I
will sail the challenger across. If Bhe
sinks well nnd good, but If she wins
she wtll win without any concessions
and the American public will grant
ine the honor of having won with iut
any sympatlrtic violation of the deed

May Be Second Balkan War
London, June 11.—Another war between Greece and Turkey is foreshad-
oweil today by the TimeB, which nays
tlic unrest in the Balkane lias become acute. Several ot the states, it
says, have recently been employed in
clearing their newly acquired territories ol "undesirable" elements and
the Bulgarians have heen thli principal sufferers.
The unrest is attributed by the
newspaper to the drastic policy ol the
Young Turks in expelling all Greeks
Irom Asia Minor and i Turkish Thrace.
It believes the policy is a prelude to
a declaration of war upon Greece,
the main object being the reconquest
hy Turkey of Saloniki and the re-occupation ol Macedonia.

British North America Act
Ottawa, June 11—Adoption of an
addresB to the Imperial parliament
asking for an amendment to the
British North America act giving increased reprcsentntion in the senate
to the west and n discussion during
which measures of reform of the upper chamber were advocated formed
the principal business at the early
session of th* house of commons today.
I'remier Borden moved nn address
to the imperial parliament asking
for an amendment to the claiiBe* of
the British North America act relating to the appointment of senators.
The effect of the address is to ask
for an increase in the number of senators to 96. This will provide for a
group of 24 for the four western provinces and make four groups In all.
Quebec, Ontario, the maritime provinces and the west. The address
asks the imperial parliament to provide that in the event of .N'ewfound-
nnd entering confederation the representation in the senate would he
increased to 102.
In this connection Mr. Borden stated tbat any movement looking to the
inclusion of Newfoundland would
have to come from the island colony.
Another feature of the address is
the request that a provision W? put
in the British North America act
tbat the representation of a province
n the commons shall never he less
than  its representation  in tbe upper
use. This would mean that Prince
Kdward Island, Nova Scotia and New
Brunswick together would nKer he
represented hy less than 24 members.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier aaid that both
sides were agreed that parliament
bad absolute power to increase the
representation of Alberta and Sas-
katctinwnti. Ah for Manitoba lie did
nut think the same power existed. Hi!
was quite in favor of the creation nf
a fourth group id prov I noon based
Upon the principle of the federal art.

Woman Suffrage
The following essay was written hy
one of the Cranbrook High School
children. One of the most important
observation to be made is tbnt the
subject was written entirely ex tempo,
the boy having had no previous idea
of what the subject was of which he
was expected to write:
The Woman Suffrage Movement Is
one of the greatest of modern times.
It is essentially a modern movement
and one brought about and
made possible only by modern civilization which enables
a woman to do a man's work
in some cases better thnn be can do
begun to question the right of tbe
half to govern the whole and to demand for  themselves equal rights.
It is only in tbe last six or seven
yearB that the movement has begun
to assume formidable proportions.
Before that it consisted solely of a
few scattered bands of women whom
most poople regarded as cranks and
fanatics. Slncft then it hns swelled
until in almost every country on the
globe there is a body of women lighting for the vote. The movement had
Its origin in Kngland and is Btill
stronger there than anywhere else although it has met with far more
success in other countries.
Women base their claim to the vote
on these facts:
1. About half of the women in the
world an.- wageworkera or are in business. These have absolutely no representation in the affairs of the
country although they are quite as
intelligent aud capable as their fellow workers of the opposite    sex.
2. The most of the remaining women are married and performing at
home quite as much work as do their
husbands in the otlice or factory, yet
they have no power to make laws
about tUe education of the children
whom they raise, nor have they any
power in the control of liquor or vice
in their district.
The first of these arguments seems
fairly plausible. Undoubtedly, any
woman who is earning her daily
bread is quite as much qualified to
vote as is any mau. In fact,
in some casea beer-soaked individuals
holding a job demanding little or
no intelligence have the power of the
ballot while business women, perhaps
making as much as nny man in their
own town, have no control over the
administration. But on the other
hand the larger part of these wage-
earning women are of the lowest
classes, in some cases foreigners and
generally with very little education.
These voters united with the lowest
class of men voters would make a
large body, large enough to control
the country and yet of such low intelligence as to be easily swayed by
any corrupt politicians nnd to havi
no knowledge of the things tbey ave
voting for. Again although a married woman is certainly qualified to
vote on the problems concerning wo
men and children Bhe could hardly be
expected to have much knowledge of
the business affairs on which she
would be required to vote. However,
no doubt if the ballot was granted
she would make herself acquainted
with these things.
The attainment of the common object however bas been gone about
very differently. About the worst
example of how a movement of this
kind may be forever blackened in the
eyes of thinking people is furnished
by the present situation in Kngland.
The women there seem to hnve loBt
all Bense of reason and run amutfe.
Churches are burnt, great pictures
slashed and houses of private individuals are destroyed by thepe fanatics. The fact that they are women, however, always earns pardon
or at least lenient treatment for the
offenders. Life in London at pres-
?nt is a reign of terror for owners of
property and the public are already
greatly Incensed and prejudiced
against a good sensible movement.
It is a pity these militants could not
tnke a lesson from their neighbors
across the ocean.
ln America au altogether different
method is used for the attainment of
the same object. The English suf-
frnfTtte hands the man in power a
brick, the/American suflragotte bands
him n rose, orderly parados, orderly demonstVations nnd rational do
maiiils are the keynotes ol the Amer
lean treatm-nl  Of tbe situation   and
already tlio bulbil  hus h i   granted
In mnny BtfltOB Of thc union and It
hidfl fair tu ne given throughout tbo

At the City Council meeting held
last Monday there were several Items
of interest noticeable to those present.
Present a petition and the ratepayer attend. Thi- presentation of tbe
petition from the lb-tail Merchants
Association was supported by eleven
of those who had Blgned  in support
of the contents.

The request made by the Loyal
Orange Lodge was supported by four

When the Mayor called the meeting
to order the Aldermen wondered wbat
they were to expect from such a large
array of strange attendants.
It seemed that the strangers were
agreeably surprised at the courteous
treatment they received af the bands
of the City Fathers.
■   ■   •   •
The volume of business that*had to
be attended to promised a long Bitting; it was discharged with dispatch.
Thc number of petitions and requests presented to thc council must
havfc broke all previous recordB.
Tbe petitions ranged from a request to help protect the broad and
butter of the citizens and ranchers to
the removal of tin enns from a ditch.
How much wider and varied a range
could on1 wish to hnve before them?
• •   •   •
It was surprising to an observer
the amount of detail work that was
being attended to by tbo council. It
can but result in good to the community.
• •   •   *
Each department of the city is being well attended to and proper attention is being given to their suggestions by tho council as a whole.
When the reports of the vnrious committees were presented to the meeting it was gooil to observe the attention that was paid to any progressive move or suggestion that was
explained. This cnn only result in
the more economical working of tbe
city's projects.
• ■   ■   •
In the report of lh'1 City Engineer
there was no Item uf $TtS.G0 tlml
brought forth comment on the purl
of the Aldermen. The city engineer
in explanation of this snid thai it
waa fm cleaning up the nuisance
grounds,  not after the city   scaven
gers but after delivery rigs dumping
their waste all over the place, having no respect for cleanliness or
health. It is about time that the
merchants looked into the conduct
of their employees Ln this respect
nnd avoid trouble that might brew in
the future on tbis account.
It might be just as well if the parents warned their children to be
home before the curfew bell is rung
or else they will be having the chief
p! police after them. The ringing of
the bell has been suggested to the
school trustees, and tbey will see
the wisdom In co-operating with   the
I council in endeavoring to get the
children hom3 at a reasonable hour,
we have no doubt. They have the
children's interests at heart ant! for
children to be wandering all over the
city or playing games at the corners
or on vacant lots by the lights of B

ing or Instructive when tbe hour is
late and the majority of the citizens
are preparing to retire to rest.
It would do a lot of good if the
citizens would wh de-heartedly enter
into the spirit of the council and cooperate with them in their endeavors
to clean up the city. Whilst there
are a large number of the householders who are trying to do their best
there are others who seem to be only
too glad to make work. The council
bave gone to a lot of trouble to
clean up all thc alleys in the city—
and to their credit may it be said
that never before has the city presented so clean an appearance or the
dangers from disease been so thor-
oughly removed as at present—at tbe
same time one can wee where some
thoughtless Individual has again
thrown refuse, which means that before long if the practice is not stopped the work will all have to bc done
over again. And this work costs the
ratepayers money. Be as thoughtful
for others as yon would be for your-
JHelf and at the progress the work Is
making we shnll soon hav^ the cleanest city, the best streets, and tho
hest alleys, to be found in the West
today. The Influence of the work will
not only he nn inllueuce ou the
population today hut the results will
be embedded in the minds of the
children that will hear good fruit in
lhe years to come.

if the oil should have been generated ns Dr. Dawson suggests, "in consequence of heat at considerable

oil would rise until it met Borne Impervious harrier of overlying rot'c

Assuming the theory advanced as

and that it has heen so generated in

ung shape
If the pre:
in the world is
.ii the heart ot
ent rate of pro
gress is maintained one half of the;
total length of 12 miles .^88 yards;
should he completed by tbe end of I
th.- present year. The work was com- j
menced at the end or December, 11)12.
This tunnel, which is known as the
Second Simplon Tunnel, is being con- j
structed by the engineers ot the Swiss
Federal Railways to cope with the
remarkable growth of tourist and
• goods traffic on the Simplon route.
It runs parallel to the existing tunnel, and is being madA by an enlargement of the parallel working gallery
made by the engineers of the former
tunnel. The cost is estimated at ?6,-
Apart from the use of explosives
for blasting, compressed air is the
sole power in use within the workings. The rock drills are operated bjy
air, and the excavated material is
drawn away by locomotives driven by
air under a pressure of between 180
and 1'JO atmospheres.
One of the features of the tunnel,
according to a Swiss correspondent
of The Engineer, is tbe adoption for
the dry portions uf the tunnel of a
masonry lining uf artificial stone instead of the natural stone hitherto
employed in Alpine tunnelling. This
artificial stone is composed of cement, limestone and sandstone, nnd
is being mnde nt, Ihe Brlgue end of
tbe tunnel. The correspondent suggests that this new departure, which
was strongly opposed at first, wns
Influenced by the success with which
composition stone aud ordinary
bricks have been used in England.
The work of lining la stated to have
been simplified by thiB new practice.
The nature of the work nt the
northern end or the tunnel is stated
to necessitate an immediate lining of
the excavated portion, and timbering
is being freely used to resist the Immense pressure. No blasting Ih permitted during the passnge of a train
through the original Simplon tunnel,
as the distance between the tunnel
and the heading Is only twenty-six
feet. The risk involved upon the first
funnel is stated to hnve heen estt-
mnted at $1100,000.
The lirst Simplon timtn.d, it may he
remembered, wns constructed by the
Swiss firm of Brnndt, Drnndnu, and
extraordinary precautions were tnken
for protecting the health and Uvea of
the workmen. The precautions, bow-
ever, were justified hy the results,
nnd a singularly difficult piece of engineering was carried through wilh n
marked absence ot illness. Tho necessity for a parallel gnll"ry for ventilation and drainage purposes made
the progress with the original Siin-
plou tunnel less rnpid than tbnt now
taking place.

Minister of Railways
Hon. Francis Cochrane, Minhitarof
Railways and Canals in ihi! Borden
Government, han left Canada for a
much-needed reBt. The career of Mr.
Cochrane since assuming otlice han
undoubtedly been characterized by
devotion to duty, self-sacrifice and i
keen regard for the public weal. Even his political opponents assert that
his industry bas heen his physical undoing, and 'that had he heen less eager for work he would not have been
compelled to seek a rest during the
middle of the session. While Ms general ihealth is not shattered, yet, acting upon the advice of his doctors
and his colleagues, he has thought
it wiser to leave the scene of his labors for a short period.
Next to Public Works, it is well
known that there is no other department in the public service at Ottawa
more exacting and more strenuous.
When it is recognized that the pros-;
perity and advancement of the Dominion of Canada are linked up with
waterways and railway transportation, the greatness of the task devolving upon the minister in charge
can be realized. Mr. Cochran.; has
been unceasing in his activities since
he assumed office. One would have
thought that the unfortunate heritage of the Laurier Government would
have been enough to have occupied
his whole time for years to come.
But it was not bo. With the eye of a
master, he surveyed the whole transportation' problem from const to
coast. He saw what was lacking,
and be supplied the need. He did not
talk much, but inaugurated the movement of doing things.
Indeed, much of the success attending upon the administration of the
Minister of Railways and Canals is
due to his silence. Hitherto it has
almost been accepted as an axiom in
the life of a successful public man
that volubility ou all occasions
should prevail. But Mr. Cochrane
had no patience witb such a doctrine.
A successful result has been noticed,
particularly fn the House of Commons, where railways and canals provide an every-ready subject for the
loquacity of certain eastern ami west-
tern Liberal members. One of the, interesting features in the House ol
Commons is tbe striking contrast between Hon. Henry R. EmiueiBon, becoming known on account of his
fondness in the House for speech-
making as "The Maritime Unlimited," who waB formerly Minister of
Railways in the Laurier Cnbinet, and
Hon. Francis Cochrane, the preaant
Minister. Emmersou, with rolling
periods and violent gestures, tries to
ture Mr. Cochrane from his den of silence, but. the Minister of Railways,
politely refuses to be drawn into nny
argument which would waste the time
of the House and country. Time and
again has Mr. Emmerson tried, but
time and again he has been baffled,
nnd Mr. Cochrane has thus done a
great service to his country.
The Minister of Railways and Canals, in the House of Commons, is
brief but pointed. While chary of
receiving a reputation for verbosity,
he is polite in his answers and clear
in hia speeches. Without flourish or
frill, hi- enunciates a principle or outlines an argument and is done with
In the administration of his department he exhibits thc snme .mali-
tli-B which have gained admiration
and respect In the House of Commons. Deputations nnd interviewers
daily lie fn wall for him nt. his olllci
In the West Block on Parliament
Hill. Rome approach lilm with ex
(rnvagant propositions, othors with
feasible projects, hut all of them receive consltl-rntlon on tbelr merits.
None of them suceeed iu wasting the
Minister's time. It Is safe to say
that there are few men in the country In any prominent position who
cnn see Into the heart of n subject
more quickly than thfl present Minis
ter of Railways. He has an almosl,
uncanny perception iu weighing the
merit/* or demerits of men and tilings,
Mr. Cochrane haH thua prowanted tbo
country from being rushed into expenditures unnecessary and extravagant.
If, in modern history, it were necessary to And a prototype to Frank
Cochrane the name of Abraham Lin-,
coin comes naturally to mind. Both
men possess the same rugged virtueB
in their dealings with men. Both
men are bluntly honest, caring for
iif man's opinion when they are i.
the right. But, like the great American statesman, the Canadian Minister of Railways and Canals is kind-
hearted and just. He is single purposed—to make his work tell for the
good of the people who have placed
lilm in a great position of public
trust and have given over into hie
charge the transportation interests
Mini luuv such an important bearing
upon the whole prosperity and well-
being of the country. \
No more striking example of the
industry of Mr, Cochrane can be
found than the long and arduous trip
which he took in the summer of 1912
into the wilds of Northern Canada,
when the Bubject of the construction
of the Hudson's Bay Railway was
under consideration. Many another
minister would have been content to
have sat In his office and accepted
the testimony and reports of his engineers. But it was not bo with Mr.
Cochrane. He took long train journeys, treked through forest and
marsh, canoed down the long stretch
of the Nelson River until he reached
its mouth, and then spent weeks at
this port on Hudson'B Bay, going
carefully into all'its qualifications to
he thc terminus of the railway that
ia now under construction. Such experiences as were encountered by the
Minister of the Crown could never be
repaid by a country in cash. It waB
an exhibition of doing one'B duty
which will ever remain an example to
every Canadian. Only the other day,
on his recovery from a recent sickness, the Minister took a long jour-
nery over the Intercolonial to enquire into the workings of the
tem. ThiB he did againBt the advice
of his physicians.'
Hon. Frank Cochrane has done s
work that will remain as a monument to his industry and ability.
The construction of the Hudson's
Bay Railway, the deepening of the
Wclland Canal, the carrying on of
the great Natianal Transcontinental,
the placing upon business principles
of the Intercolonial, and the creation
of the great terminals on the Hudson's Bay are real* achievements that
will remain long gfter him.
In appearance, the Minister of Railways and Canals suggests strength of
mind and virility, of purpose. The
strong, spare frame and the well-
tanned skin speak of the years spent
in the northern part of Ontario amid
its forests and streams. Though
most of his life haa been spent in
Ontario, the Minister was born In
Quebec, at Clarencevitle, in 18f>2. He
liaB been a resident for many years of
Sudbury, where he is the uncrowned
king. He waa first elected to the Ontario Legislature iu May, 1905, and
became Minister of Lands and Mines
in the Whitney Government,
In 1911, when the anti-reciprocity
wave swept the country, Hon. Mr.
Cochrane was selected by Premier
Borden to tilt tbe portfolio of Rail
ways and Canals, though he was uot
a member of the Federal House at
the time. The striking tribute to his
ability was confirmed by the electors
of Nipissiug a few we.»ka later, when
tliey selected him by acclamation
their member.
There is no doubt but tbat the
dogged purpose which has carried
him through a long life from one success to another will also bring him
hack to Canada restored to health.
Hon. Frank Cochrane is a big man
in the national life of the Dominion,
and he can he ill-spared, because he
typilies in himself all the qualities
which go to the building up of a
healthy and  Midi ordered nationhood.
motion. Do not injure the berry in
anyway, either by pressure or by
tearing it Ioobb from the calyx or
"hull."    Pick   the   vines clean    and
place soft I berries in separate cupa for
the cannery, throwing the culls away.
5. Pack the berries in a cool shed
having plenty of light. Before packing remove the berries from the picking cups, placing them upon a cloth
covered packing frame. Be sure the
berries are perfectly dry before packing. Forcing currents over the'bes-
ries while they are upon the framea
removes all moisture, brings out the
lustre on tbe fruit and leaves it in a
cool condition.
€. Use experienced packers. For
long distance shipments make at
least three grades. (A;. Distant
Market Grade, using only sound partially colored fruit. (B). Lo>:al
Market Grade, using Bound and well
colored fruit. (C). Cannery Grade,
which includes a good quality of ripe
fruit. All berries showing the least
indication of decay or deterioration
are culls and must he thrown away.
Such berries will spoil tbe rest , of
the crate.
7. To determine- the proper color
that berries should have for | loug distance shipment hy express the beBt
plan is to study tbe train schedules
and determine the amount of time
it will require the berries to arrive
at tbe destination. Pick several cupB
of berries at different stages of maturity and place them in a tempera
ture of 65 degrees. At the end of
thc given time inspect the berries and
determine which is in the Jhest shape.
For this test the cups should be
wrapped up in newspaper and the
time of thfe test ahould be two or
three days over the actual train
8. When packing for market use
uniform sizes .of berries, placing them
in clean, new cupa. Have the top
layer of berries come slightly above
the outside edge of the cups and have
the rows faced evenly so as to give
an attractive appearance.
9. As soon as packed place the
cupa in tbe crate and keep In a cool
place. In nailing on covers use four
nails to the cleat. Do not nail sup-
erfloUBly aa lt irritates the consumer
and deflects from tbe packer's reputation.
10. Cool the berries down to 60
degrees hefore shipping. This may he
done by leaving the fruit in the night
air and shipping in the morning.
1.   Pick the berries aa soon as the
fruit will slip   off the core   without
crumbling or mashing.   Every   berry
tbat is red must come off the]vine.
Pickers must use small carriers
attached to the waist bo as to hold
the cups. Pick directly into tb? shipping cup and never tranafer from one
receptacle to another any raspberries
that are to he shipped. Have a separate cup for cannery berries. Throw
away any berries abowing decay. Do
not put one over-ripe berry in the
shipping cup aB it will spoil the rest
nnd the market condition of the
whole crate will be ruined.
3. Berries should uot be picked
while the bushes are damp, either
from dew, rain or fog, except for
cannery purposes.
4. See tbat the cups are filled full,
having all the cornerB flll'd to the
5. Pickers muat. not pinch the berries, noi- hold them in the hand to be
crushed. The berry should be taken
firmly between tbe fore-tlnger and the
thumb, with a lateral twist removed
from the core and placed directly In
the shipping cup. Pinching makes
red discoloration after the berry has
been on the mbrket a few dayB, which
ia followed by premature softening
and decay.
6. As booh as picked place the
cupB in the crate which Bhould
kept In a coot place. Never allow
berries to stand in the sun or dust
after being picked. For express shipments cool the berries to 60 degrees
by fanning with night air and ship
the following morning.

It must be remembered here that
radium itself has not been liberated
as a separate entity and that it is
only in its compounds such as the
chloride, bromide, nitrate, etc., that
it has been studied. These compounds are luminous of themselves
and have the power of imparting luminosity to many other substances
when brought into proximity with
them; they charge electrically vessels
containing them; they of themselves
give off heat continuously; they have
marked effect on photographic plat's
and in many other ways display remarkable properties.
These active properties of radium
arc due to a kind of decay by which
it, in all probability, gives rise to
other elements. This decay is so
uniform and of such potentiality that
the amount of radium in a snbstanrp
may he actually estimated from the
emanations issuing from it. This is
done hy means of an instrument ca!l-
cd an electrometer.
It is natural to suppose Uiat a substance possessing such unusual properties should at once attract attention with a view to ascertaining Its
possible practical applications, anl
nowhere has greater activity been
Bhown than in its possible application ns a curative agent for some of
the ills to which humanity hns fallen
heir; ami in this connection extensive
Investigations have been carried on
with a view to ascertaining the effect
of the emanations from milium upon
that greatest of human evils, malignant cancer. The results imve undoubtedly been most startling, but
the public would be well advised to
reserve final judgment upon the merits of radium as n curativo agent until the permanency of these results
have been proved, lu llie opinion of
the hest. authorities this muy not be
ascertained for some years to come.

a few places In the world uranium-
bearing minerals have been found in
connection with certain sandstones
and conglomerates, rocks of sedimeu

formed from the detritus occasioned
by the breaking down, by aqueous or
other agencies, of vast quantities of
crystalline rocks, the constituents of
these rocks during transportation by
stream agencies have undergone a se
lective process according U> the laws
of gravity by which the heavier mln
erals have been segregated amongst
themselves; iu this way the uranium

these constituents have subsequently
become oxidized and have given rise

Interesting Activities ol Uir Minister
of Trade and Commerce.
When Robert Laird Bordon waa
called upon in September, 1911, tu
form a cabinet for tlm government of
Camilla, there was one name tbat appeared in all tlic various "slates"
that newspapers nil ovor tlm Dominion woro busily engaged in putting to
the front. Thoro wns-,at no time any
doubt that the name of George Eu
Iiih Foster would appear upon the
lint uf tlnmu whom tho lendor of the
Conservative party chose to assist
him In Um great tank tlmt bad beon
thrown upon bin shouldors. Fighting
side/ by Hide in thc ranks tu tho left
of tlm Speaker during years that
woro long nml arduous, there was no
man in whom tlm present. Premier
could Imve placed more reliance, nor
ever have found that reliance ill-
placed. Vear j aftot' year they worked
together in Opposition, today thoy
nre working with the same zeal in
tha larger Held, and with the greater
opportunities Unit were presented to
them when tlm people uf Canada, hy
their-A'ote of 1911, made it clear that
tbey desired a new hand to control
and,now men to direct tbe varied activities of government.
It was to tho Department of Trade
and Commerce thnt the activities of
Hon. Mr. Foster were directed* when
the various branches uf government
were being placed upon tiie shoulders
best titted to bear them. It was an
office for which Hun. Mr. Foster was
fitted as, perhaps, no other man in
the pnrty was titted. In the first
place, he wns a recognized authority
on national finance and trade. He had
done remarkably capable wo.i; even
then for advancing the country's
trade, a matter so intimately associated witb tbe country's revenue and
the country's general prosperity. He
was a mnn of business, a mnu of affairs, one wbo knew other countries
na well as his own, wbu was an astute diplomat, one well equipped for
meeting tlm Intricacies of trade agreements ami commercial understandings. As far buck as 1892 he hml visited the West indies in the interest
of reciprocal arrangements for extension of trade, it is a rcmarkablo fact
that twenty years Inter, under another Conservative Government, he
went once again to the West- Indies,
and there negotiated one of the most
important trnde agreements that
this country has entered into in recent years. It was a form of reciprocity thnt commended itself to tbe
intelligence of the people ut Canada)
a reciprocity between countries that
produced totally different products,
that eacb had u surplus oty commodities that were of use nnd required by
the other. The general advantage of
this trade agreement has been well
demonstrated already, and that it Is
apptV'cittted by the West Indies ns
well as by Cnnada is shown by the
fact that its held has been extended
by the addition of other Hritisb possessions in that pnrt of the world.
But this is only une of tho important efforts which tlio present Minister of Trade nnd Commerce has undertaken since lie took Up the duties
of bis present office, One of the most
important trips wus that lo Australia. Though it wns not possible
to conclude tbe very Important trade
arrangements which Mr. Foster hnd
in mind for Canada's relation to this
great sister colony, there wns laid
the foundation of wlmt will yet
prove a commercial alliance. And the
dream of the Minister, n dream thnt
will undoubtedly be realized in years
yet to como, is nn alliance in trade
of all the scattered British Dominions und of the Motherland ns well

noun battle,   There ate speeches   de
livered on subjects not political, but
all have that Bame lucidity, choice of
words and vigor of phrasing which
make (leorge E. Foster a model for
the speakers of tbe country.
There are few men who have a distinguished career In the public life of
Canada extending over a greater
number of years. He tirst entered
the House iu 1882, and the promptness with which his talents impressed themselves may be noted by the
(net that three yeai-H later he was a
mombor of the Government of Sir
John A. Mucdoiiald, occupying the
Important post of Minister of Marine
and Fisheries. He found bis greater
field three years later, when be succeeded Sir Charlos Tupper ns MiniBter of Finance, and he remained in
tbat office through the Abbott,
Thompson, Unwell and Tupper administrations. He was leader of the
Government during the session of
18115, and lu the session or .January,
1896, up to the re-entry of Sir
Charles Tupper. Those who know
anything of the period during which
Mr. Foster was Minister of Finance
will never fail to give credit to him
for the masterly way in which he
wns able to navigate the ship of
state over tbe financial shoals that
might Imve been wrecked had a man
of less ability been in control. To
all his other honors, Mr. Foster will
stand in Canadian records as a resourceful and capable finance Minister. One net of hia regime will never be forgotten, that being the Canadian Bank Act, which he introduced
and carried through in 1891. Among
other new features, it made provision for the currency of all bank
notes without discount throughout
Canada, for the guarantee of full
payment of all notes of issue, and
the supervision of a bankers' association. This is the same act which
last session wns given its decennial
revision, and is the foundation upon
which our whole battling system is
Hon. Mr. Foster has been a great
Canadian figure, but he has also heen
more than a Canadian figure; h|3 has
heen an Imperial figure. On the invitation of Mr. Chamberlain, he visited Great Britain in 1903, and delivered 28 addresses on the question
of Imperial Preference. This great
idea lie still works for in his plan of
inter-Imperial trnde with all the unity nnd cohesion that he knows this
will bring. Another act, along the
snme line, was taken in 1912, when
ho effected an arrangement with the
Brit ish Government by which the
world-wide British consular system
wns officially opened to the use of
Canadian trade and commerce. These

will go ou increasing in practical
usefulness and that have been beor-

would represent ten."
The cost of these drill bails has
been much criticized. Let me point
out that the cost of1 each mile of the
Transcontinental Railway would
build ten drill halls; In other words
we could have had one drill hall every 170 yards from the Atlantic to
tbe Pacific if we had put into drill
balls the money spent upon the National Transcontinental Railway. I
am not Baying that tbis would be a
good expenditure of money, but, if
properly distributed throughout the
country, a few drill balls built with
some of this money would have done
no harm. The land that, has been
alienated from the Militia Department in Quebec alone would represent at least COO drill halls."
Perhaps the country will now bear
the last of Liberal criticisms of Colonel Hughes and his expenditures. He
is carrying out a policy which results
for the good of the youth of thu
country. It Is not revolutionary. It

An Imperial Issue
The Toronto Daily News is outspoken and emphatic on the question
of Hindu immigration.   It Bays:
A ship loaded with Hindus has arrived at Victoria. As British subjects of India they will claim the
right to land in the British Dominion of Canada. They will raise an
issue that may affect the whole Empire.
But It is just as well that the
position of Canada should be finally
established. We do not believe in
the compatibility of white and Asi-
utic civilization. Between the two
races there cannot be intermarriage
and natural social intercourse. Tbe
Asiatics have industrial ideals which
conflict with those of Canadians.
There La also a conflict of moral
"We intend that this shall be a
white' country. We do not mean
that British Columbia and the West
shall be over-run with Asiatics, In
admitting the yellow races we have
been too compliant rather than too
It is simple and natural enough
to say that a British subject in India Bhould bave equal rights and privileges with all other British subjects In this country. ThiB question,
however, has to he settled by facts
and not by sentiment. Tbe unity
aad even the existence of the Empire
depend upon control of Immigration
by the Dominions in their own interests and as their own national ideals
may suggest. No imperial pressure
upon the Dominions could be wisely
attempted. No such pressure could
"It is desirable that this ahould he
understood in India. The right nnd
determination of Cannda to establish
its own ideals of civilization should
be asserted and recognized. Dut us
the Victoria Colonist snid a tew days
ago: 'The thought will not down
that we are about to witness the beginning of one of those tremendous
movements which set at defiance all
preconceived policies ns though they
were so many cobwebs."

Kosciusko-The Greatest of the Poles
NEVER in the history ot mankind has there lived a more ardent lover of fcrsonal and National
Liberty. He devoted his life to regain the ancient freedom of his beloved Wand. Kosciusko haled
any legislative attempt which invaded the Natural Rights of Man. If he were alive to-day, every son
of Poland knows that he would revolt at any LAW which declared ."Thou shalt NOT eat this —
thou shalt NOT drink, that! Kosciusko knew that the light wines of his native land and the barley brews of Germany were good for mankind when used in moderation. He drank, them himself to the end of his honored days, and who will DARE say that they in any way injured thii
mighty personality. For 57 years Anheuser-Busch have honestly brewed honest beers. Their
great brand—BUDWEISER—is sold throughout the world and has helped the cause of true
Temperance. Seven thousand, five hundred men are daily required to keep pace with the natural
demand of Americans for BUDWEISER. Its sales exceed any other beer by millions of bottles.

British Discipline
The death of Captain A. G. Lucas,
announced in cable despatches the
other day, passed almost unnoticed,
and yet lus passing calls to mind one
of the most tragic happenings In tbe
sea-faring annals ol the British Empire. Captain Lucas was s •• rlvot
of the ill-fated Birkenhead, a British
troops ■' h U red  in   Si
mon's Bay more than half a century
ago. The record ol I he tw a ■ deeds
>;■: essed tl i bas been indelibly
and has
been at itloi    ind stin     is t
heroic action ,r an Is since.
ri." Birkenhead was    a    tr
fun .eying   ■    Hera   t     South    Afi tea
with  their wives and children   whn:
she struck and commenced to sink ofl
Simon's Bay.   All aboard knew only
a few minutes must elapse before the
■■•■<t'\  would disappear,   leaving   her
human   freiyiit    struggling    In    the
water.  The elements of  the  disaster
were such as warranted a   panic but
the   danger    was    scarcely realized,
jwh'n, at a few   words of   command,
the troops formed up on the   sloping
; decks and were told ofl In details to
■assist the women mid children to the
; boats.   Tbey stood m their ranks at
■ tho moment    the vessel was making
her tinnl   plunge.   Some reports   say
, tbey disappeared In the act of slng-
1 iritr "God Save the Queen."
'   The   Victoria   Colonist, moralizing
Ion the nr-niorahle event, sees,  in  the
i noble   conduct   of   those   British    soldiers,  illustration    i,f the one   attri
| hule iimt above all others has   contributed    to  Bnt ish  greatness   "dis
clpllno."   In the history of brave nc-
j lions, concludes the Colonist, dtBClp
i lino    and  duly  have become   almost
! indissoluble terms.    In  the homes,  in
the  public schools,  in  the  business of
life, whether It Is commercial, naval
or military, tbe part  that   discipline
has|played in   moulding   the   British
character  bas    never     been    properly
estimated,   Hu olTects is so apparent
that  perhaps "what everybody knows
nobody thltfcfl of," may account   for
tlic   little     attention   directed     to      a
basic reason  (or Britain's success in
praetienlly every  walk  of life.  Count'
lOSS    examples    could   be  supplied    Of
the triumphs in history attributable
to   discipline,   when it  lias been   so
impressed  oil  tile  individual     as   to
form the guildlng characteristic from
the  cradle   to   the   grave.    It     nerved
th' Boldlers ol Waterloo to step automatically inlo the breaches caused
by the repeated charges ol Napoleon's
cavalry, and, through the long hours
of waiting for Blucher's arrival, pre
