Mr.   A.   E.  Watts,  of  Wattsburg,  Make  Another
Felicitous "Call" upon the C.P.R.
Wattsburg, B.C.
November 15, HH
A. D. Cartwright, Raq.,
Sec'y Board of Railway Commissioners
Ottawa, Canada.
Dear Sin-
Owing      to     various    complaint!
brought   to   my   notice by perrons
who take an Interest   n public attalre
I aent the following telegram to you:
"I   mailed   on   the   12th Inst, notice*   of further applications.    I served copies on Railway Company and
give notice today of lurther applications   regarding   fences,   destruction
of public roads, dangerous rock slides
which   endanger   the lives of passengers.   Details follow by mail."
(signed) A. E. Wntts.
[ alao served copies of thc above on
the Solicitor and the Superintendent
of the Canadian Paclflc Railway at
Cranbrook, today.
With reference to tbe dangerous
rock slides in the precipitous portions of the mountainous districts,
many warnings have been given to
the Railway Company not only by
the travelling public, but also by
the employees whose lives are endangered every day and night by the
parsimonious management in matters
relating to precautions which should
be taken for the safety of all who
travel by rail.
For instance, one old pioneer, a
moat respected Individual, swore to
an affidavit before me to the follow:
ing effect: That he was travelling
on the Spokane Flyer from Moyie to
Cranbrook when thc train ran into a
rock which had rolled down from a
cliff at the bottom ot which the
road bed runs, and at the foot of
the   cliff   is   the   deep Moyie Lake.
nne of tbe rock) which rolled down,
the deponent states, waa tour feet
thick, twelve feet wide and about
sixteen feet long, and another rock
about four teet square fell and landed close beside the steel rails. The
engine by its Impact with thla rook
i snapped the stay rods underneath
the paaaenger coach. Thla took
place on a dark and rainy night, and
had the rock referred to atruck tha
railway track it would have thrown
the track Into the lake. Had thla
occurred, the Spokane Flyer, ona ol
fastest trains in the West, would
have been at the bottom ot the Moyie Lake with all Its passengers and
crew as tbe Lake ls very deep at
the point where thla occurred.
The deponent further states tbat
he helped to break the rock mention-
I ed, so that the train could paaa on
i its way, and he says further,that aa
. a practical miner he considers tbe
tools carried on the trains for this
purpose are only su table for ornaments. He also adds that there are
many other points in tbe mountain-
ousreglons that ore exceedingly dan
i-erous in thia respect and that tha
railway Company pays very Httle
heed to repeated warnlnga aa to the
danger and peril Ho whlcb the travelling public is subjected to. Further evidence in this respect haa been
given by Engineers and otber employees who naturally do not like to
lay sworn information against their
employers,- but along the same linea
I may mention the fact that onooe
occasion I was travelling on a paaaenger train when It had to atop owing to the tact that a freight train
had run into a mass of rocks which
had fallen down on to the track.

unions was not much In evidence; but
in 1871 a conference was held at
which it waa discussed. In 1876 Sir
Frederick Young published a work entitled "Imperial Federation" and in
1884 the Imperial Federation League
waa formed, chiefly through the Instrumentality of Lord Rosebery, although W. E. Forster, a member of

Johnson spoke chiefly ot the union ot

that he regarded such a step aa calculated to strengthen the Empire;
but How* was very definite as to Ua

very far from being a new one, or
one favored by one political party
more than another. It has heen regarded far more than half a century
a* the inevitable outcome of the evolution ol the Empire. Indeed, as lar
back as the Eighteenth Century, Edmund Burke claimed that In some
•ort of federation would be found the
only permanent frame work of tbe
Empire. He realized, however, that
difficulties ot lnter-communlcation
rendered lt useless to deal wltb th*
question In a practical way.
If the condition* to be taken Into
account in devising any plan ot closer Imperial union were difficult In
Burke'* day, and lf the realisation ot
hi* dream seemed to Howe to be far
lu tbe future, lt cannot be denied
tbat tbe problem of details la far
from being an easy one today, al
1 though we can look forward more
hopefully for an early solution than
, did the advocates ot the great union
even a quarter of a century ago. We
propose to state some of these difficulties, but not to discuss tbem, for
j at this stage discussion would be pre
j mature. Lord Lansdown suggested
I what may he called ante-Imperial
I trade preference as a step towards
| consolidation. It ia true that he on-
. ly spoke of the extension by the United Kingdom of certain tariff advantages to the overseas dominions, and
this was aa far aB he could go when
speaking for a political party. It
would not have heen good taste for
him to bave suggested to the Dominions what tbey ought to do lnthls
way. But lt seems to follow as a
matter ot course that, it the adjustment ot tariflB is to be employed as
a mean* of bringing about federation
thlamust not be confined to the Mother Country alone, but must be re
ciprocal movement throughout the
Empire. Here we encounter a dlffl
culty of serious magnitude, but one
that is by no means Insurmountable,
tt may be overcome hy confining the
adjustment to certain specific articles
It would be entirely o\ercome by a-
dopttng the policy of inter-tmperhl
free-trade. We are fnr from saying
that tariff readjustment is essential
to an advance tn tbe direction of
closer union, and mention it flrst, only because Lord Lansdown laid stress
upon it.
Defence Is a common ground upon
which all parts of the Empire can
stand, and muat In fact stand whether they will or no. Community of
interest and common Hues of action
on this subject arise out of the prln-
cipleof seli-iiremrvatiua. A working
agreement on tbls subject can readily be reached at any time necessity
call* for It, but we think something
more ls necessary than temporary >-x-
pedients to meet special emergencies
ns tbey arise. During the past summer the ideu of an imperial council
of defence bus been revived. The formation of such a body would call tor
a readjustment of our relations to
the United Kingdom, and, wbat is ot
lar greater Importance, of the relations ot the United Kingddom to the
Dominion*. At present the question
of peace or war, the arrangement ot
alliances, the conduct ot international relations, ls vested wholly ln the
Home government although In matter* directly affecting the Dominion*
alone, th* conduct of negotiations
will be entrusted to the governments
of those Dominions. Just to wbat
extent representations of the Dominions upon a council of defence would

On Wednesday morning about 11:45

of the Imperial singing nnd having
n sociable time, wben Smith took
from bin pocket a revolver and tor
whnt wan apparently curiosity opened it out nnd showed his companions
that it contained tbree loaded car
tridges and two other chambers
which were empty. H<; then opened
the gun afl if to eject the cartridges
for shortly nrterwnrris he pointed the
gun nt the wall and snapped the trig
er, then placing the end of it to his
bead he remarked to his companions:
"Don't think 1 mean lt" nnd again
pulled the trigger, this time the gun
nctunllv went, off with the ultimate
result he shot himself.
Robert Orineney, one of hln companions, Irrmedlntely c-illed Chief Dow,
who, on arriving at the pcone found
the mnn with his head nnd shoulders
laving over the left arm of the chair
nnd hln right hand clutching the gun.
He took the gun from tbe man's
hand nnd called (or tbe doctor; upon
Dr. McKinnon arriving he ordered
the man to he taken to the St. Eugene Hospital, where he could he better attended to. Chief Dow placed
the companions ot the man under arrest to nwnit the findings of tho Coroners inquest.

A. Henderson. O. Lenak, E. Hill, E.
H. Smnll. L. Clapp, and J. Armour.
Thn following Ih the testimony of
thoso present at tbe tlrrfl ot shooting
Dr. McKinnon—I wns cnlled to the
Tmperlnl Hotel nt noon yesterday,
ilecensed wnn in the parlor In n chair
lnylne- over the left side, unconscious
nnd still breathing, but bleeding from
ii bullet wound In the head, the hole
or cnur«e of the bullet was upward
nnd n n backward direction. There
was no pistol tn bis hand. I could
not nay how clime tbe L'un wns to
his he-id when the shot wan fired. He
lived until 3 p.m. without again recovering consciousness nt all. I did
uot see nnv powder around the wouod
He was hIbo bleed ng from the right
nostril nnd there wns blood In the
right e-ir. The course of the bullet
suggested that he shot himself. \
Robert Orkeney:—I identified the de
censed bis name was Smith, I have
known h m nhont a month, wc were
working together nt Mayook for the
C.P.R. We left our work on Saturday. November 16th. He came to
Cranbrook on Saturday and I came
on Monday. We had been drinking
together, and wben at the Imperial
he asked me to get a bottle ol Whiskey the barkeeper asked me not to
drink It in the sitting room. He
took his gun out, tbe gun contained
threi cartridges, too chambers being
unloaded, and before I could do anything the deed was accomplished. He
botlfht the pistol on Saturday and
tiled to sell it on Monday. 1 never
heard him makr; nny turcntB to take
his llle and my opinion Is that he
thought tho chamber was unloaded.
He retained prssrsslon of the pis-
tolnnd would not let nny one handle
it. I know thnt there were three
chambers lor I saw them. The pistol wus here shown to and examined
by the Jury.
I thought the dere-ised was only
trylnc the pistol thinking It to be
emnty. He only snapped tbe tr gger
once. I then went for the pollen nnd
n doctor.
Hn hnd tried to sell the pistol on
Mondnv mornln« nnd would not accept one dollar for It saying thnt he
would throw  It  away first.
Ohnrles Or gi-s:—I hnve known the
deceased nbout one month. I was
with him on Monday, we stopped at
the Imperial. We only had about 3
drinks wa both slept In the same
room. He was undor the Influence of
drinkthe night before. He bought
the gun on Tuesday paying 110 for
it, I don't know who from. He waa
a Jolly sort of a fellow.
I don't think he bought thc gun to
kill himself with for he was a good
natured Bort of fellow. He had been
sine Ing nil the morning.
I don't know how long he had been
in the country, he wnH not drinking
in the camp. We went In the parlor
of the Imperial and he snapped the
pistol nt the wall, then turned it to
his h-ad, saying: "Don't think 1
menn It Hob." I don't think he had
any rensons for doing t, he made no
remarks when hn bought the gun. We
CLtme to Crnnbrook on Monday morning.
Frank Macdonald:—I did not eee
the shooting. I wns asleep. The first
I knew was the people coming In, I
never heard him sny that he was going to commit suicide. I have
known the deceased about amonth.
I did not see him buy the gun. He
had been drinking considerable at
Wardner whero we stayed about 3
hours. He told ine be had heen away
from his people about eight years. 1
think that he wns about 2S or 26
yearn old.
Chief of Police Dow:-- I was called
to the Imperial hotel on Wednesday
morning by a man saying tbat another mnn was shot, I found the deceased in a chair with a gun in bis
right hand; I took It away, then
went for a doctor. The gun had two
empty cartridges in It, and two loaded cartridges wen on the floor. The
man was removed to the St. Eugene
The   findings   of the Jury was that
the   deceased    wus   accidently kllbvl
while  hnndl ng   a gun thut was supposed to he empty or unloaded.
From the evidence submitted there
Is no doubt but that the deceased
had thought that he had emptied tbe
cartridges from the gun. and that he
had no intention of taking his own

Scotland, and had been in this country about eight years.

The   unvarying    fairness    uf   the
Mounted   Police   in dealing with tbe
; Indiana   had   a marked etlect on old
j Sitting Hull, when, Bhortly after the
. Custer    n.i.t.H.icrt-,    he came with Mb
band   ol   Sioux   across   the border,
, says c. v.. Armstrong, recounting in
I November CANADA MONTHLY some
reminiscences   of   n   former mounted
policeman   a the Cypress Hills divis*
' ion of the force.
One day away back In the seven*
; ties, breathless Blackfeet scouts came
to the police post ut Cypress Hills
! with the startling news that the
whole American army bad been wiped
out to the soutb and that the terrible Sioux were hitting the trail
northward fur the boundary,
This news could not but fait to pro
duce some uneasiness among tha
handful ol red-ooated trooper., who,
although thev had no other thought
than to stand their ground mul put
up ii hold front, come what might,
felt very dubimit. hh to the outcome
\ when a thousand or more Hioux,
wtth the blood lust strong in them,
Hooded tbo boundary country Boouts
were thrown out to Hive word oi
the approach ol Sitting Bull's war
riors, and the da ly routine ol the
post whs carried on quite an usual,
single constables riding !iu and wide
dome then duty, despite all the red
skins on ttie plains Then, over
night and us silently as Uie stars,
the Sioux Invaded the Cypress Mills,
snd when morning broke the smoke
from their c&mp lires roue id the
clear air from the ridge of b.lls completely   surrounding the httle police
■ post. Tips of tepees appeared abovn
the trees, and the si^ht was omui
ous to the little troop of police in
the  valley  below      Colonel  Walsh  -ie-
' cided that a bold stroke without delay was imperative, and mounting
every available man he rode at the
' head of bis small force into the
! Sioux camp Ht sought out Sitting
I Bull for a pow-wow. The Sioux
'. chief was reticent at tirst. but the
Canadian officer told him through an
■ Interpreter that while he sojourned
in Canada he must respect the laws
and behave himself or disaster would
come to him and his warriors, they
wmiltl be hunted as a coyote is hunted,driven from bluff to bluff, from
slough to slough, until not one of
them remained.
Hitting Hull heard this ultimatum
in silence. Then, drawing himself up
and streeching lii, arm out to indicate the wide range, he said, in a
few words, that the Sioux were not
at war with their white brothers of
Cnnada, that they enme as peaceful
men with no malice in their hearts,
and thnt they would respect the laws
of tbe white meu.

According to a section of the district appro-

Jieu Johnson, chairman of the house diatrict
r-, itti-ps one view of (he matter, and Com-
• Rudolph, of Washington, quite another,
according to interview.'* wiih them. The former maintains that there ia nn law prohibiting- the compound-
ins; ut salaries unless the person drawing more than
one salary is the incumbent of hu administrative
ofl.ee. So it all hinges on whether or not Mr, Hudson's office comes under the prohibitive "clause. As
the only statutory prohibition as to the number of
positions a person may hold Is that the combined
salaries must, not exceed 92600 annually, and Hudson's totals $2200, It would appear that ht is not
engaging In anything Illegal.

hard pressed lo find amusement, with humidity and high temperature having a daily battle.
'Members of the senatorial and congressional
sets; of the army and navy, of Uie diplomatic and just plain resident sets had ex-
hausled the towns resources for enjoyment by
July first, when the municipal swimming pool
opened for Ihe season.
1 Then a genius of Ihe smart set had an
inspiration. Some accredit it to Mrs. Nicholas Longworth—possibly because she has been
the organizer of so many unique ventures in
Washington social circles. At any rale, she
mid her husband'Nicholas Longworth, have
from the first been among the most ardent
patrons of the pools.
WHOEVKU originated llle plan decided that tiie
only way to patronize a bathing beach was
to go there and bathe. At first, efrovta
were made to obtain oxclustve use of the
pools during certain evening hours. Superintendent
William H. Uudion refused to imako any distinction.
The water wns tlieru and the bathing facilities anil
llfegua.ru. free to llle public, but only at stipulated
Than Borlvly did a hli of thinking and decided
lhat the way out of too general association with folk
not on |ts vlslllng list wus to battle very early In the
morning, before tho pools had been "soiled'- by the
Waslilngli.ii streels are Ideal for automobiles, especially electrics, and most wealthy women own and
operate Ihem. So, how easy to rise with the city's
tqulvalenl for the lark and, first donning a bathing
•ult st home, motor down lo what all fashionable
•lies lioi.slst In calling "llie Buttling UCacll"!
And. naturally, this unexpected Influx greatly taxed
the capacity of the place. Provision wae made for 1000
bathers, or for 00) comfortably. When the women
from the unfashionable sections were augmented by
tbelr atstera from the northwest and the husbands,
brothers, cousins and sweethearts of said sisters, the
"beach" became a literal swarm of humanity.
But society has proved too democratic to mind any
inconvenience so long as the water continues wet and
the towels plentiful. For weeks Ilk has been regarded
as the regular thing to get up at daybreak and be
down at tho pools at 6 o'clock, when they open. There
are three of the latter along In a row, with the largest and most deslrablo at one end.   Smart folks, not
drivers, army officers and car conductors with an
"afternoon off" commingle; and the woman who would
rather perish than be fushluiiable. and she whoso sole
umbftlon is to be rated with thc elect swim shoulder
to shoulder wltb somebody like MIsh Isabel Crosby,
a, noted belle and a daughter or Colonel Crosby, IT,
S. A., now In charge of the Soldiers' Home, or M.
Lutle, chancellor of the Swiss legation.
Of all the representatives ln congress, none enjoys
a more favorable social position In Washington than
Albert Sidney Burleson, of Texas. Both he and bin
family are what the milliner terms a high-priced
creation, "rich, but not Kay." When tliey indorse anything It taken on an air not always to he furnished
by the extreme smart set. And the Burlssbns have
been, from the opening day, keen patrons of the bath-
Ing beach.
Very early In the summer certain young women
who rather neglected swimming lessons during childhood realized the municipal pools would afford them
excellent opportunity to lenrn swimming before going
away to Newport or Har Harbor. So they have
nol been content to merely go down to Iho bathing
beach and wade about. The llfegunrds are splendidly
proportioned fellows—all of them are college men—
and it is no hardship for them to Instruct natty
young women In perfectly fitting bathing suit;, how
not to drink When they go under water mul bow to
breathe when on top of It. Equally lt seemed a fair
proposition that ihe would-be swimmers pay the
handsome young men of small salary for their efforts
to teach t-raoe and daring In the water.

UIEHE hav* been queens who wielded greater
power; princessi-a who gained more fame;
but few are the women in the roster of
royalty who hare so long aud so happily
enjoyed the dignity of royalty as Augusta Caroline
Charlotte Elizabeth Mary Sophia Louise, dowager
grand i1u-.-1m.ss of Mccklenburg-Strt-litz, the royal
aunt of Europe.
Her name merely happened thnt wny; it wasn't
her fault. If you wero to east about in the Almanac!, de Gothfl. you would probably find scores with,
names as high-powered nnd dozens with n few
yards more tanked on. The helpless baby in a
royal family is juBt loaded up with names to satisfy
all tho mothers-in-law, grandmother* and dead and
gone ancestors who may be loafing around outf.ide
of perdition or bliss and liable to be sore if their
memory is neglected. When the baby reaches the
age of discretion, the useless luggage of nomenclature is dumped overboard and the -child has. a
chance to swim out.
That is what the dowager grand duchess did
long before alio annexed the Meeklenburg-Stnlita
title; and sensible she was, for whnt woman could
have expected lo survive with Mecklcnhuvg-StrcliU
bumping along after all Ihe other names sho had
to bear up under? Paring it down to simple Augusta Caroline, she has managed to survive for a
full ninety years, a living and shining example of
tho simple life in tho mutter of Christian names,
and also of the longevity of the British and German royal families.

THAT Is her royal blood line. Augusta Caroline
waa the sister of the late duke of t'ambridgo
and thc girlhood playmate of Queen Victoria.
Her brother George, of Cambridge, died In 1904,
aud people then exclaimed over tho grim fashion In
which hie lino hung ou to its royal perquisites and
prerogatives. They had largely forgotten lho existence of his aged sister, lost to view lu the German
principality of Mocklonburg-Strollta. But they were
reminded of lt almost at onco by tho death of her
husband, the grand duke, whoso end came In the samo
year us thut of her brother. She has been a widow,
therefore, during tho lust eight years; but both ber
losses have failed to weaken noticeably the grip her
halo old body holds on tho life which bus passed so
happily for her.
Her descent from the royal Hue of Great Britain
and tho German houso of Hohenzollern made her kin
to practically all of the ruling houses of Europe, In
some degree of relationship, and It even Invaded her
marriage tie. Georgo m of England espoused Char-

To My Beloved Wife
Had we ons blanket, and tbe night were cold
I'd shnre It with her, but to And the truth—
Thnt while I slept, she shivered and forsooth
Had taken here and round my shoulders rolled;
her wnist nnd pettlcont she folded neat
And laid across my warm unworthy feet.
One day she called me to a secret place
And pulled out little things of noftest down;
odd shirts, und wraps, and many a little gown,
Bedecked with braid and silk, with strings and lacs;
Then, glancing up to meet my glad surprise,
Plnshed the sweet love-light Irom her tender eyes.
1 fell upon her neck enwrapt with Joy;
Hhe Inid her gentle head upon my breast,
Then rntsed her eager UpB to be carreBaed
And Boltly whispered ol some little boy.
I blushed nnd smiled and snld: I'd call him Jim,
But she said- "Charlie" Is the nume lor him.
o womankind, whnt sweet entrancing grace
Links In the Inmost liber ol thy soul.
I'l'en when life's darkest pains nnd anguish roll
Through thy torn henrtl; still lives the human race.
Vou fight alone to give the new-born brenth,
Yon etenl within the very jaws of death.
Hweet snlnted soul, thy voice la with me still;
Fnrewell, my heart shnll never say to thee
KV-i henven Itsell Is brighter now Inr me
Hince tbv pure spirit went Its pines to Oil.
♦ ml thnui-h Dentil'-. Hood may rage and chill and roar,
I'll hear thee calling from the lurther shore.

I    Au oraiuenl BOientlBt, the other day,
j gave his opinion that tlio most, won-
I shall show   derful discovery of recent years was
tlio discovery ot Zam-Buk, Just
think! As soon as a single thin layer of Zam-Buk is applied to a wound
or a sore, such injury is insured
against hlood poison! Not one species of microbe has been found that
Zaui-ltul. does not kill!
Then again. As soon as X.aniHuk
is applied lo a sore, or a out, or to
skin disease, tt slops the Binnrllug.
That is why children are such frlenda
of Zam-Buk. Thev care nothlug for
the science of the thing. All they
know is that Zam-Buk stops their pain.
Mothers should never forget this.
Again, As soon as Zam-Buk is ap-1
piled to a wound or to a diseased j
part, the cells beneath the skin's sur-;
face are so stimulated that new
healthy tissue Is quickly formed,'
This forming of fresh healthy tissue ,
from below is Zam*Buk's secret of
healing. The tissue thus formed is ■
worked up to the surface and literary j
easts on* the diseased tissue above ,

built except !y 'joidlug It through an elevator. Tho system forced
the majority of farmers to soil their grain to tho elevator owners
at arbitrary jrics, .tnd oft tlmoa to submit to heavy dockar-o aud
othor annoyances causing continual dissatisfaction. Now however
the distribution o'. ..irs as fixed by the Grain Act, and tho use of the
loading platform, provide facilities which enable the farmer to secure
satisfactory lreal-«tnt in the disposal of his grain, and tho liighost
market priced at time cf sale. Every farmer therefore, should moro
ond more e'ideavor lo use the loading pit Harm In shipping his grain
to the terminal elevators. It is the safcK'innl ot the fanners- freedom In disponing et his grain to the be.4 advantage for himself. II
farmers refrain [rom using tho loading n'atform freely. It might result In Its bolng dnne away with, becar.ee railway companies and
elevator owners era strongly opposed lo It. It Is easy to under-
stand why ^levator people desire the loading platform abolished.
Tho railway 'ooplo on their part sny I delays the loading of cars
and helps b came enr shortage. Th's we know to bo nonsense,
because frequently nfter cars aro loaded whether with grain, coal
lumber or other merchandise, ,'hey are sidetracks* for days and even
weeks Instead of being promptly moved forward to destination. It
Is engine s'.ioiage and shortage of competent trait, men thnt mostly
causes uram llockndes on railways and not lack of cars. Let every
farmer therefore, n, ail he ran to use t'e loading platform and become an ImHpoiideut shipper. tn sub.ennent advertisements we
