New Railway Act
Important Legislation for the Protection of Employees Incorporated in New Act.
What purports to he a measure of
immenso importance to thc Inhabitants of the West and especially in
thle district where bo much building
is tit present on the wny by various
large railway companies, is published in the ollieitil reports just received nf thu proceedings of the Doui i-
Ion House. This wlll indeed be interesting reuding for all employees of
the varloua rallwuy companies mnl
should havo far-reaching effects Lo
Hit* general public locating in what is
generally termed "Railroad Towns.''
Witb n any of the members of the
House we think Mr. Graham is to be
congratulated In so closely observing
the inter, .its of. the Railway toys aud
in a larger sense the gcncrul public,
in pressing his p.iint sufficient to
have this embodies ln the Railway
Act to 1.3 shortly brought i.ufore ti,.
Hon. Geo. P. Graham moved lor
leave to introduce Bill No. 171, to
amend tho Railway Act. He said:
The object of this Bill is well defined
In Its wording. I might read It, as
it wlll explain exactly my object.
1. This Act may be cited an an
amendment to thc Railway Act.
2. Any railway company desiring to
change the location of its terminals
or divisional points, or any of them,
Bhall, before making such change, obtain an order from the Eoard of
Railway Commissioners approving
the same.
3. it shall be made a term of every such order that the rnilwny company obtaining the same shall pay
all Iosbis sustulned by Its employees
who may he obliged to change tbelr
place of residence from one municipality to another by reason of the
chansc of any euch terminal or divisional points.
4. In case the company and its employe b do not agreo upon the amount of such loss, the board will determine the amount thereof.
Mothers, Take Warning
The example given bolow might well
be ta'.en to heart by the mothers In
Cranbrook and district, In the care
they should exercise in thc quality
nnd thc material of the toys which
are put into tbelr children's hands.
It is a question also which the government of any country could well afford to look into and prohibit any
dye to be used ln any way, shape or
form, which has such poisonous materials in its make-up.
8t. Paul, Minn.—A tiny red shoe
on a baby's first doll caused the
death of Robert, the six month's old
child ol Mr. and Mrs. S. W. Wicks.
Poisonous dye from the little shoe
had been swallowed by the infant.
Mr. Wicks took the doll home to tbe
baby on Saturday morning. The
child gurgled with delight and, baby-
like, put his tongue to the brilliantly colored Bhoe. Mr. and Mrs. Wicks
noticed that the dye came oil, but
the child showed no Ul effects at the
Yesterday, while the mother waB
singing to the child, his head suddenly dropped forward and a moment
later tbo baby was dead.
A physician said the dye had affected the heart.
At the Auditorium
If tuneful music nnd pretty girls be
conceded as sulllclcnt to furnlsb un
evening's amusement, "Tho Prince ol
Tonight" ib pleasant a musical comedy as one could usk for. Haunting
melodies, not all ot them new,
abound in tho play that pleased a fairly good bouse at the Clunic last
night. Perhaps most tuneful of ull
the numbers was the male chorus:
"Tonight Will Never Come Again."
Tom Arnold and Eva Carey .made
an excellent duo in tho leading roles.
Arnold being blessed with a fair voice
and the feminine lead having both a
feood _prano and the personality to
"get lt across" all through the pluy.
OI plot the "Prince of Tonight"
has nothing to boast, but nobody expects much plot ln n musical show.
A far fetched and taucilul Idea permeates the comedy, ln which a century plant that blooms but once in
a hundred years and causes considerable commotion when lt does, figured
•trongly. Scenery and lighting effects
were fully up to expectations and tbe
attraction, If not quite on a PM
with some of Its predecessors, gavo
lull value In entertainment.
"I Wonder Who's Kissing Her
Now," and other old favorites amotvr
musical comedy lovers were hack
again to remind us of the prince's
flrst visit und the company aB n
whole was competent. "The Prince
ot Tonight" is good for a long time
Thle ehow will visit Cranhrook
About the middle ol May.
Tbls question has been iiiulur din-
cusslon for some time, and has been
brought about in this way: Railway
companies construct their linen and
form their divisional and terminal
Points for their own convenience, as
tbey have a perfect right to do. Possibly, in a fow years tbey may seek
to change these .terminals or divisional points, place tbem ut Home otber point on the line, or on a new projection of the same line. In the
meantime the employees of tbe railway company have purchased their
homos, havs beautified tbeir Httle
plots of ground und have becomo an
important element of the community
In some instances the whole town is
known as a railway town, and but
for the presence and Industry of these
people there would practically be no
town at all. In all Instances they
have taken their share In tho payment of taxes and In some canes they
have contributed largely tor waterworks, electric ligbt, granolithic
walks nnd the building of school*..
This has gone on for yenrs, and titer they bave paid a large amount of
money ln taxes for these purposed,
they awake some morning to 'ind
that their employers are moving
their works, or their terminal facilities, to some other municipality and
lt they are to retain their positions
they must also move. No provision
has ever been made for the loss that
theso employees sustnin in thus being
compelled to move. I submit that
it Is not unfair to railway companies
that, in estimating the cost of the
removal of a divisional or terminal
point, with the necessary equipment,
to s.me other place along the line,
they should take Into consideration
the loBs that would be entailed to
their employees an.l that they should
be nsked to pay that lot s. This liau
occurred In some cases uot very far
from where we are now. Take Carle-
ton Place, tor Instance: quite a large
number of men, I am told have been

Nasty Blaze
Vancouver—No mariner ever prayed
lor a breeze more fervently than did
the residents of Shaughnessy heights
today pray tor the dropping of a
western gale. A million dollars worth
of residences in Vancouver's most
fashionable home *sito were saved by
a miracle. One house only waB burned
and tbe total loss to this residence
end small damages to several others
will be within $20,000.
Tbe trouble started just before
noon when sparks carried from land
clearing lires ln Point Grey dropped
on several fine Shaughnessy heights
residences. Five caught almost at tbe
same time, and that owned hy A. E.
Millington, manager of the Ocean
Falls company, was destroyed. Fire
companies from all' thc city were
called and scores of people moved
their belongings into the streets ex
pectlng tbat their homes would be
burned and wiped out. Fire caught
ln great piles ot logs and by two
o'clock there was a great spectacle,
watched by thousands of people,
many in automobiles, which lined the
nearby streets. At three o'clock every house within a radius of a mile
had two or three volunteer fire fighters out on the roof, keeping tbe
sparks brushed off, while the gale
still blew merrily, Water from many
lines ot hose were bring thrown
against the Bides of exposed houses,
where the heat was bo great as to
blister the paint. It looked for a

On Wednesday, on Baker Street,
thero was a seen* transacted such as
wo believe nover waft exhibited In tho
streets of any city iu Canada before,
It was a seen*' . t bruf.aU.ty and brutish strength, no one would have believed could ha.e been witnessed iu a
civilised country, amoug civilized
people, by what is termed a civilized
police force.
The occasion wan one which had for
its object the arrest of an ignorant
Indian, who abides under the whito
man's rule, yet does not fully understand it.
The circumstances arose from tho
City Pound Keeper putting Into the
City Pound three stray horses, one
of which belonged to tbe Indian in
question. Mike Michel, the Indian
finding his horse in thc pound, ac
cording to the pound keeper's ver
slon, broke the lock and took his
horse out; according to Mike's version, he took a wrench irom out of
C. H. Parker's barn, jumped tha
fence, took the gate off its hinges,
and led the horse away.
The pound keeper later dincovercd
the loss and went after Mike, and overtaking him, tiie two of tbam hud
somo woods, Constable Baxter coming upon the scene arrested Mike,
who succeeded in gotting away aud
running to a point in front of the Y.
M. 0. A., whore Walter Soden, the
pound-keener in question, retained
him until he was again given into the
hands of Constable Baxter.
Mention is here to be observed that
no attempt was made to put on the
hand-cuffs which every officer is cup-
rosed to carry, but Constable Baxter led Mike along until in front oi
the Imperial- Bnnk steps, another Indian, by name Abraham, touched
Constable Baxter on the arm with
the plainly evident intention of explaining the circumstances or remon
strating with him for making the arrest.
Constable Baxter mistook Abraham's intention, and turning round,
knocked him to the ground, wben he
again struck the Indian; as Baxter
made pretence to again strike, Abraham put up his nrm to ward oil
the blow; agoin Batter knocked his
nrm down, but this time Abraham
fell ou thc imperial Bank stop
steps where Baxter struck such a
blow ln such a cowardly manner
which :sent the blood flying about
from ot! the Indian's faco In all directions, bringing forth from thoje
standing by such exclamations of disgust as should have made him refrain from [miner mutilation.
Chief Constable Dow coming on the
scene, he with Mr, Soden, took
charge of one Indian and Constable
Baxter the other, From the Imperial Bank the prisoners were takeu
down Baker Street, with not very
gentle handling by any means, until
in the front of the Bank of Commerce, when again the prisoners received some of the most brutish
handling it was possible to give a
man. Tbe while Mike was held Mr.
Soden hit him over the hend with
his Sap threo or four times until the
man was nearly insensible to all feeling; then, because the man was not
able to barely walk several so-called
men, perhaps for the sake of notor-
ity, took hold of Mike's legs and until the police station was reached, he
was carried.
While Mike was being taken, Abraham and Constable Baxter reached
the Post Ofllce steps in front of which
Abraham tried to get away and Bax-
forced him on the ground where he
again pommaled him In a brutal
manner; he was rather carried than
led to the police station, where the
spectators must leave them until the
trial takes-t^auee.
Tho trial took place In the City
Hall Court room on Thursday, before Judge Ryan; here again treatment was meted out to them which
called forth from those present exclamations of disgust and astonishment at the treatment afforded. According to those present, and we say
it   advisedly,   the   Judge,   instead   of
hearing thc case properly and taking
evidence as it was given, turned himself into the Prosecuting Attorney
nlso protecting tbe police in every
poBsible way.
Again referring to n statement o:
one present: "It was very evident if
no enc had been in court other than
the parties arrested nnd the consta
bles and Chief, the case would have
gone through and the poor Indiana
would have had no hearing at all."
With us being present tho Judge hnd
to tnke the case, and during tho trinl
said: "Chief you will have to give evidence," indicating tbe spirit ln
which the Chief of Police was asked.
Judgo Ryan administered to Abraham a fine of $25.00 for interfering
■■.itl. un oflicer; and to Michel he gave
a iin- of $100, or two months in jail
for resisting an officer, and 6 moh*ths
in Jail for disorderly conduct uii I
breaking into the pound.
This, so far as the case at present
was concerned, stopped; not so, however, with thc people who witnessed
such a brutal, cowardly, and dis
graceful scene, which was one to eal
Torth the most strongest of: reproof*.
and indignation of nil sightseers; thi
affair is to be brought to the attention of the Indian authorities; also
to higher authorities than can be ob
tained in Cranbrook. If the polici
Commissioners do not Instantly make
an impartial and proper investiga
tion Into the matter and especially
into the disgraceful conduct of Con
stable Baxter the matter will be
called to the attention of the high
est authority in Canada of Indian af
fairs and Police Supervision—We say
this in all good faith and have authority for so- doing.
Tho citizens of Cranbrook should
not and will not stand for such conduct, not only with tlu, poor Indian,
who is ignorant of the white man's
law, but they wlil not feel safo under thc ruling of men who forgot
themselves so much as to make themselves an object of scorn to every
respectable citizen. i
French Nation Patriotic
Students Volunteer Extra Military  Service  and  Enthuse Whole People
Paris.—Higher and ever more irresistible grows the tremendous wave
of patriotism that is sweeping across
the country making our hearts beat
with pride ond joy in having lived to
«e the glorious resurrection o
France, which pessimists in all countries had declared doomed to decadence and fall.
No one can deny that thc bill drafted by the Government providing '.ot
the re-establishment of the three
years' service is an exceedingly dras
tic measure. It demnndt, great sacrifices from the young men of France,
but in tbe eyes of tbe men who will
bave to make these sacrifices it does
not even go far enough, because it
doss not bring our army up to the
same size ;.« that of Germany, nnd if
a vote were taken among those who
are nbout to enter military service,
I am convinced that they would hai)
a military term of five years with even greater enthusiasm.
Though the Socialist leaders ar.
trying their utmost to convince the
people that the Government is trying
to foment a war scare for political
reasons, every one feels that unless
France gives Germany proof of her
determination to sacrifice everything
in the defence of her country vav
will come before long.
The example set by thc students of
the Paris colleges Is being followed
all over the country. The Govern
ment is receiving daily signed mem
orials from boys whn declare tha'
they will gladly serve three years in
barracks and so assist in the nation
al defence.
During the last few years numbers
of young men have voluntarily offered to serve three years. Young men
who belong to the Societies of Military Preparation welcome the threo
years service. M. Adolphe Cheron,
the president of the Union Soolottes
of Military Preparation points out
that as the physical improvement of I
thc race is the source of all ofliciac |
ious defence and prosperity, the ad
vantages attached to physical education and military preparation should
be increased by future legislation. As
to  the  eff-.ct  of  military  serwee  ou
medical instruction, Professor Land
ouzy, deau of the faculty of medicine,
declares thnt since this three years'
service is deemed indispensable tbe
university muat reconcile the Inter
csts of the i:i.'h culture of the na
tion with thou, of national defence.
He is of opinion that tbe solution
of the problem is not a difficult one

Rush Work on Highway
W.  W.   Bell has  been appointed  Engineer of the
Banff—Windermere Scenic Highway
Mr. W. W. Bell lias been appointed
engineer for tho construction of the
Bnnff-Wlndermere Road. The announcement of hli. appointment was
last week made by the Provincial
Government, find he will start upon
his duties at once so that the work
of constructing this great highway
can be proceeded witb without delay.
Mr. Bell is an engineer of wide anil
varied experience, and his appointment to the englneership of this important roadwork is regarded as u
.-uurantee of the very best results.
He is a young man, one of those who
have mnde up their minds to sottle
permanently in the Province ol Bri-
lish Columbia, and his progress will
be watched with considerable Intor-
st. To all Intents and purposes, Mr.
Bell is a Victorian, having lived
there for considerable time.
In Canadian engineering circles he
is known through his connection with
thc Orand Trunk construction work,
in which undertaking he waB fnr ..
Ime chief nsnlstnnt to Major Hod
Llus. In connection with the Major
anil Mr. Bell an Interesting story is
tuld that reflects a very happy light
upon the disposition ot the latter.
Thc scene waB laid ln South Africa
during the troublous times with thc
Boers. Major Hodglni was out there
on a particular occasion he waa requested to mako a trip of inspection
over a piece of railway line tint w.»h
being constructed. Accompanied by
his pnrty ho went out and foil..wed
the rails until they camo upon a
• an? of men who wero working assiduously apparently oblivious of the
fact that thc bullets from thc rill™
of the Boors were falling about thom
thick and fast.
Malor Hodglna thought It was
somewhat remarkable bo he luminal
lor the man In charge of the gang
nnd ln n moment wns Introduced to
u tall stripling of n man nnn.c.1 Bell.
He asked Mr. Boll II he did not mind
thc death roll that might ensue as u
result of such reckless heroism   aud
was quietly informed that the same
condition applies every day: "and we
hnve got so used to lt tbat we don't
mind," added the young man. "Besides," he proceeded, "we hnve very
little to fear; tbe Boers are wretched
shots." But those who are familiar
with the history of the war will recollect that the reverse was the
truth, and thnt Mr. Bell was taking
very big risks with his life and tbe
lives of his mon in carrying out the
construction work in the face of such
n bombardment from behind the famous kopjes thut decorate the veldt.
In taking up bis new olllce, Mr.
B-ll has no such excitements ln store.
The Banff-Windermere embraces the
moBt beautiful section of the Rocky
Mountains, nnd ho will have time to
uMi,nu his eye to the glorlcB ot tbe

that was accomplished last year, so
that the work allocated to Mr. Bell

But this significance seemed quite

an air of some slight disappointment

There will be. thinks Doctor Kaufman, an enormous reduction in poor
law expenditure, in consequence of the
insurance laws. Thrift will be supported and ...':;•:*-":■ _. and in millions
8f eases created. It is a mistake to
suppose that insurance will kill a desire to better one's conditions. In
Germany insurance has implanted
courage to face the future. It will
also be so ir. Bn gland.
Secondly. Insurance will result In
the freeing of the people from their
greatest fear. In consequence, there
will be increased national happiness
and higher standards of life and living,
In Germany for example, the consumption per head of population of rye,
wheat and meat, notwithstanding the
high prices, has largely increased, the
deposits with savings banks have
enormously risen, and Doctor Kaufman believes lhat these indications
of national prosperity are mainly attributable to the national insurance
Keonnmlc development, of course,
plays its part, but this development is
furthered by the security which Insurance in all Its branches gives to
the workers. Reasoning by analogy, similar results may be expected
in Kngland.
Thirdly, an Improvement in the
conditions of .life of the worker means
improvement in the quality of work
done by him. This may bc regarded
as  an  industrial axiom.
Fourthly, the new English law will
affect the lower strata of people, just
as It has done in Germany. This
strata hitherto were helpless, but sick
insurance and old-age pensions remove their most crying needs. Compulsion for these classes was absolutely necessary. In a few years will be
witnessed a new life, new hopes and
new ideals in these classes.
Finally, there Is the improvement In
national hygiene to be expected, especially in all that affects tuberculosis
and other national diseases. The
hygiene Initiative of the insurance
laws will he felt from thc highest to
the lowest classes in the state, but
especially in tho homes of the poor.
In Germany the worker's life has been
prolonged; it will be so in Kngland.
Great sanatorlas will rise In all parts
of the country climatically suitable,
and tho English may look forward to
the complete stamping out of certain
diseases which have hitherto ravaged
thc nation.

More Evidence of Fact That World
Has Changed Little Since Then
Rome.—Prof. Boni, who at present
fs currying out excavations on the B.te-j
formerly occupied hy the palace of the
Caesars on the Palatine Hill, has proved that at least threo large elevators
woro used In the palace, enabling the
Roman emperors to ascend from Uie
Forum to tlio top of the Palatine, One
shaft, which has not yet been completely cleared from thc debris and
rubbish which encumbered it, Is 320
feet deep,
A storm which displaced a tract of
the sandy bench at Porto d'Anglo (the
ancient Anllum near Rome) haa revealed the existence beneath the level
of the sea of ruins which are slippered
to bn the remains of a patrician villa.
Anllum was a fashionable seaside resort of the ancient Romans, and Nero
built a sumptuous villa there.
Discoveries like these, said a lifelong student of Roman antiquities,
mnke one realize how little the world
lias changed In habit or achievement
since the days of the Caesars. Take
the matter of water supply and baths.
There has been found near Pompeii a
Roman house ln which Is installed'a
first-rate hot and cold water system.
Tho occupants could turn on hot or
cold water or both, just as in a modern
house; nnd this was toward thc end
of the first century, A.D.
A mode of bathing remarkably like
the modern Turkish bath Is described by Colsua, a writer on the art of
medicine. He advises the bather to
go flrst into a moderately heated room
and perspire slightly, after which ho
should anoint himself and pass into a
hot air room. Having perspired
there, he should pour hot, warm and
then scrape himself wilh a strlgll, and
I finally anoint himself—this last pro-
j cess being probably a precaution
'against cold. The strigll was a
curved piece of metal much used for
cleaning purposes by the athletes and
bathers  of ancient   Rome.
The ancient Romans were good
cooks arid had advanced types of
kitchen implements. At Pompeii
was fonnd an implement consisting of
a long handle and a rectangular pan
with twenty-eight circular depressions
—used for baking cakes or' poaching
eggs. ..
Few people recollect that the
Romans introduced a system Qf
heating their houses by hot air.
The stokeholes were outside nnd
were connected by shafts by which
the air circulated under the-floors
and up inside the walls. Seneca,
writing in the first century, regarded such a system as an enervating
luxury, but by the third century it
was in general use.
As to articles of the toilet, we
could teach the Romans but little.
They had combs, razors, toothpicks,
nail files (with a roughened surface
and a smooth surface for polishing),
mirrors, toilet boxes, scent bottles,
pins, brooches, hooks, and eyes. Of
course, many of these things were
much used long before the Romans;
the principle of the safety pin goes
back, for instance, to very antique civilization.

Miller's Worm Powders act so
thoroughly that stomachic and intestinal worms are literally ground up and

If your child—whether boy or girl-

Speech is confused and the whole muscular system not under control. Theso
are union** the symptoms of St. Vitus
dunce, a trouble that afflicts growing
girls and boys, most frequently dur*
ing the school age. Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills are such a splendid nerve
tonic that they huve cured tho worst
cases of St. Vitus dance. Thoy do
Ibis because the now, rich blood they
make feeds and strengthens the starved nerves, thus throwing off the disease. Here is an example. Mrs.
Li. I.. Glfford, Westovor, Ont., says:
"For over two years my little girl, Constance, was a sufferer trom St. Vitus
daneo. She was frightened badly by
a do?, which seemed to bring ou tho
trouble, and notwithstanding all wo
did for her It seemed to be growing
worse She grew so bail that she
could not feed herself and her speech
was so badly affected that .vo could
carcely understand her. Thc twitching and jerking of her limbs was pitiable. At tbls juncture we begun giving her Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and
to our great joy they have completely
cured hcr, and sho is now as healthy
a child as you can find."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are sold
by all medicine dealers or sent by
mail nt 50 cents a box or six boxes
for $2.50 from The Dr. Williams'
Medicine Co., Brockvllle, Ont.

Good for thc Cafe
The proprietor of the Cafe Edelweiss
was faced with ruin. Somehow he
had failed to hit the taste of the citizens of the little Bavarian town ln
which lie carried on business, and he
was at his wit's end to And a device
for attracting the fickle public. Sud
denly he hit on a brilliant Idea. He
inserted two advertisements ia thc
local newspaper.     One ran'—
Young men wllh large Income desires to make tho acquaintance of a
young lady with a view to marriage.
Money a matter of secondary Importance.
The other ran:
Young lady with about 60,000 marks
(later, more) wishes to marry a young
man. A gentleman with good character, even if he is without means,
will lind an ideal home.
These announcements brought dozens ot replies dally and, writing on
behalf of tho Imaginary young man
and thc rich nnd nlso imaginary young
lady, tho proprietor ot the Edelweiss
made a rendezvous with all applicants
in very naturally, his cafe.
The establishment Hummed with life
for a few days until somebody smelt
a rat, and tho enterprising proprietor
was forced to explain his lnelhod of
tilling it before the local magistrate.
There was a terrific explosion off to
the southeast of the hill, nnd General
Splnachivltch turned pale as a ghost.

King'a Recent    Reception   of   Their
Leader Makes Him Exceedingly
Madrid, Spain.—The visit of Scnor
Azcarate, the Republican leader, to tho
palace and the intention attributed to
the king of summoning other principals personages of all parties, notably
of the Republican and Socialist parties has created a sensation.
Both Republicans and Liberals welcome this action of the king, which
on tho other hand seems to produce
among the Conservatives and Reactionaries a diametrically opposite effect.
In the course of his Interview with
Scnor Aszarate. the king showed himself to be strongly In favor of the creation of old-age pensions, also of
strict political sincerity, and most ample religious tolerance, and tho development and liberalization of education.
His majesty nsked the Republican
leader if he regarde.rit as desirable to
hold a conference, in the event of a.
ministerial crisis, of the leaders of the
anMdynastic parties.
Senor Azcarate, surprised at the
question, reflected for a few minutes,
then aiLswered: Yes. and he believes
lhat the king will tako this step. If necessary. Senor Azcarate is convinced that if tbe Liberals wish to do
liberal work on a great scale, they
will encounter no obstacle.
The king also made declarations on
religious toleration and political sincerity. Expressing his appreciation
of the army, his majesty said: If I
wero no-t king,'I should be a captain
in the army.
The artlon of King Alfonso In Inviting the Republican leaders to the
palace to talk politics wilh them haa
caused a groat stir throughout tho
Republicans are cheering for the
king. Four days ago Senor Mclqul-
ades Alvarez, speaking at a meeting
of Republican reformers, asked his
audience to support his majesty and
that sentiment has been reiterated
throughout tho land since the king received the Republican leaders on Jan-
miry 14, when his majesty expressed]
himself in favor of old-age pensions,
religious tolerance, and liberal education measures. A wave of Republican enthusiasm for the monarchy bas
spread over the country.
It Is Impossible to say what will bo
the ultimate effect of this paradoxical situation. The king has long
been known to hold generous, advanced views on the question of government, but his friendly encounters
with the Republicans have spread consternation among the Conservatives.

We are not recommending "Cran-

"get out and BOOST." Seme people ln Cranbrook are ao frightened of

that they fear to see things moving

To "boost" primarily, to Ut otb;r
people know what you thank God
for; to rejoice publicly by day over
what you give tnaukB to your Creator for privately by night. Viewed
in the broadest sense, it ia at worst
an outburst of optimism, an expression of fervent belief. And, after more
than our Bhare of eorrow and disappointment, we have yet to 1 aro the
evils of enthusiasm or the inb-iuity of
optimism. Optimism ib the very
breath of Progress, juBt an Enthus
iasm is, and must always be, its mo

our belief. Let ua not then be afraid

th= difference in the ten.1 o! the n.-ws
papers of the two countries. The
Jaraaese are excited and threaten reprisal. In Canada the general feel
ing seems to be that it makes very
little difference.

Tbe chancellor said he would be prepared to raise J2i-.000.000 uut-ide of

chancellor, is due to France, Austria

"There are no indications that thc
trade boom has reached its roan

'and taking ail tacts into consideration, I feel justified in coming to the
conclusion that we have entered upon the most growing year that British trade has ever seen."
Mr. Lloyd George estimated that
the increased customs and excise taxes would be $12,825,000, the Increase
in the death duties $7,500,000 and the

very glad that my hon, friend from
South Renfrew (Mr. Graham) has
brought this Bill up. 1 have been
approached by the railway men in
my riding and requested to bring
this subject to the attention of the
House on account of some rumors
that the Canadian Pacific railway
may move the terminal located at
Havelock, This would bj very unjust
to the men. The railway company
havo practically created that village,
the railway men have put the savings
cf twenty-five years in their Utile
homes and, should they he compelled
to move, they will practically lose
the savings of half a lifetime. Thi*
is a subject that is well worth the
consideration of the hon. Minister o
Railways and Canals (Mr. Cochrane).
Something should be dono to prevent
railways companies from inflicting
such an injustice as this upon, their
men. I understand that the minister
has made arrangements in connection
with his Bill to meet such conditions
as these and I am very please I indeed
to hear tbat such Is the case.
Hon, H. R. BMMERSON (Westmorland): The hen. member for South'
Renfrew (Mr. Graham) is entitled to
the thanks of the railway employees
for his action in bringing this matter to the attention of Parliament.
While this Parliament would nerhaps
not go so far as to recompense others who may have vested in.crests,
still it should be a matter which
would weigh very materially with
the Board of Railway Commlssoners.
When a railway divisional point is
established tbe homes of the railway
employees are created a small town
arises, and people are induced tc
come ln from other sections, make
Investments, purchase land, and establish business. All these suffer a
material loss by reriFo:i of any ch; n?e
of a divisional point. When in the
interests of the railway or in thc
public Interest changes may hrcom.
necessary the rights n* those wbo
have vested interests should he recognised, and that could be provide.)
for by the Railway Commission taking that matter Into com*. Id oration
before giving their consent to such a
Motion agreed to, nnd Bill road the
Ilrst time.

During tho afternoon a large nam
ber of shnroholderH visited the mine,
and afterwards at the meeting they
took an intense Interest in tbe business discussed. Tbe meeting wub harmonious nnd enthusiastic aa to tbe
future prospects of the company. Tbe
auditors' re] oi t and balance ebeot
showed the [in ncial state of the
company tu be sound and that they
have reserve funds on hand sufficient
for the future development of the
mine. The president stntcd that the
Company consists of nearly six hundred shareholders and the management evidently enjoys their confidence, which has been demonstrated
by the many kind nuil complimentary
speeches coupled with the fiict that
over two hundred nud forty thousan*
votes in the share of proxieB were
Bent in to be used at the discretion
of the directors. Misplaced conildcnce
has wrecked many ventures, and has
recently seriously damaged the credit
of Canada, nnd as an evidence of
wbnt may he done to restore damaged credit, the State of Kansas by the
enactment of the "Blue Sky Law"
hns made it aimoBt impossible for
promoters of swindling concerns to
raisa capital, hut. hefore the enactment of the law referred to the people of Kunsns were robbed to the extent of $60,000,000 per annum; that
has been effectually stopped and now
legitimate enterprises in Kansas havo
a ■ opportunity to obtain capital for
the development of the resources ol
their country. The authorities in
Canada have been asked to adopt a
similar law to protect investors and
thereby instill confidence in those
who attempt to develop tho groat
natural resources of this country. All
of you have power to assist tn educating public opinion, nnd thereby induce stntesmen to enact laws with
that end in view. Your company's
affairs will stand analysts, nnd the
more they are investigated the greater the possibilities of future success
appear. Your freehold land alone iB
today worth much more thnn thc
whole of the capital so far subscribed. This land runs parallel with,
and has two miles of frontage on
Kettle River, with the . railway and
the public highway running through
the full length of it. It ls an ideal
apot for a town, with opportunities
for small farms on the meadow
lands. Tlio propositi.in submitted by
circular wltb regard to dividing a
portion of this land Into small farms
and a townsite has received the unanimous approval of all the shareholders with cne exception, one
shareholder only, expressing disapproval.
Tbo proposal us outlined presents
an excellent opportunity for persons
to become land owners without investing capital, by simply paying Interest on the purchase price. Town lotB
lots will he offered ut from {200 to
$500 each according to location; fat
example; by the payment of $10.00
per annum, the purchaser may secure
a lot valued at $200, aud upon tbo
payment of two year's interest the
deeds of the Innd will be issued subject to a ground rent bused on the
purchase price at 5 p.c. per annum.
As the development of the mine and
other Industries proceed the lots will
raise in value end tlic owners of the
lots will reap the benefit by the Investment of n ver>' small sum by tbe
way of interest—the compnny providing thc capital.    When iu possession
the benefit of shareholders or
employees it is proposed to sell part
of the meadow land neur the river
and the railway, upon the same or
similar ternm at $200.00 por acre;
thereby a purchaser may obtain valuable land suitable for fruit growing
or dairy farming, that will cost him
$10,00 per acre per annum. This arrangement will be beneficial to the
shareholders in two wayB:—
(1) By giving them an opportunity
to purchase lots or small farms without Investing much capital.
(2) if the lots and land be tnken
up aB suggested, it will provide an
Income for ths company exceeding
$20,000 per annum In thc way of Interest. Further, should any purchaser of lots or farm lands choose to
pay cash for their land and to have
a title, free of ground rent, he shall
' n •!' the privilege of se doing at any
Tf three hundred shareholders Head
in applications the land will be surveyed and distributed as suggested;
if tbey do not do so, then the directors of the company wlll deal with the
matter as they deem best for the
welfare of the company.
There can be no doubt but tbat
your coal mine has passed the stage
of a "prospect," as No.~"l tunnel has
opened up two seems ol coal from
lour to six feet thick, and the No. 2
tunnel has been run (or R distance of
four hundred feet all the way in coal
from four foot to nine feet six inches
In thickness. Tho inclino now being
sunk on the vein at a point where it
is seven leet thick, bus demonstrated
that tbe coal Ib increasing in thickness and Improving in uuality, and if
thia vein holds Its own, there is sufficient coal iu that one alone to make
a great mine. Many ot the shareholders have made practical tests of
the coal and have expressed themselves as highly pleused with the
quality. Il any shareholder Ib willing to pay tbo freight, sufficient coal
Hi e .hipped to him to make a
practical test.
As before mentioned, we have made
application for the construction ol a
short railway spur to the mine, and
when tbat la completed wo shall be
in a position to ship in car lots.
Those who have viewed the ground
Cun readily see the natural advantages possessed by the mine, the mouth
of the tunnel being less than 390 feet
from the main lino. Several other
mining companies have to pay interest on huge sums of capital spent in
the construction of many miles of
railway. The conf"vetns now being
opened up aro just tbo right size and
I it.cli for the economical production
of coal, and the proximity of local
markets with the other advantages
mentioned will insure a largo profit
without having to resort to oppression and the grinding down of tho
workmen's   wages.     It    1b    a   well
Newcastte-on-Tyne has for ages past
exported huge quantities of ''oal exceeding $20,000,000 worth per annum, and still the cobI measures a.'e
not exhausted. It is a well known
fact thit coal Is usually persistent
and therefore roai mining cannot he
looked upon ns u gamble, providing
ordinary common sense ie need In lhe
conduct of tbe business.
During recent years in the nest we
have seen prosperous cities spring up ■
in localities that do not possess oue-
half the natural resources that tbe
future N'cwcastle-on-Kettle will be
surrounded with; besides those al i
ready mentioned are the agricultural}
opportunities:— For scores of square
mites tbo roiling hills adjoining the
townsite are covered witb tbe finest
kind of bunch grass, herdi of cattle
and horseB on the range, aud owing
to the fact that snow does not lay
for long, this country is one of the
best ranges for cattle in Canada.!
Many of the early settlors have made
fortunes in cnttle raising. The dlstrlot referred to is also well adapted j
for fruit growing, which is evidenced
by the healthy trees which have been
bearing for many years. For dairy
farming no better country can be
found, and add to the foregoing advantages that nearby is one of the
greatest mineral zones on the continent consisting of rich mines of copper, gold and silver. The product-
tlon of conl, coke, lime and clay will
form profitable industries to support
a large and prosperous community
which always attracts attendant industries, therefore when shareholders
are offered small farms aud town
lots by simply paying fire per cent
Interest on the purchase price, with
the right to let the principal remain
forever, or pay it off If they choose,
it gives them an opportunity to become land ownerB on terms and conditions seldom met with.
Another interesting item with regard to the possibilities of a great
coal field, Ib tbat the distillation of
benzol as ono of the by-products from
coal has been established aB a profitable industry in Germany tor some
time past, and twenty per cent of
Germany's product of benzol is exported to Franco where it is used as
fuel for automobiles in the place ol
gasoline. Gas produced from' coal
previous to reaching the coal tar
stage has been liquefied and condensed under pressure of one hundred atmospheres, and has been
used to run automobiles und
other motors.
The loregoing matter cannot (ail
to be of interest to investors, especially when their properties are situated near to smelters, or in proi-
imity to a mineral zone, *_d will add
much to .he permanent prosperity of
the _hoh* country,

All the open hearth furnaces in
Pittsburg (now using natural gns)
are so arranged tbat thoy can put ou
producer gas made directly from eoal
whenever tbe supply of natural gas
may give out. In some of thc steel
works in Europe wnter gas Is used as
fuel, lt ls made by pussing steam
through a bed of red hot coal as it
is needed. In some processes a mixture of water gas and producer gas
iB used.
Thc adoption of the scientific meth
ods of smelting, lately discovered and
constantly increasing, may very
shortly revolutionize the smelting
business especially wben smelters are
situated near to the coal fields, as
thc gaB which Is now wasted in the
manufacture of coke can he utilised
, ,   .  .,   . ... ,. , and  the same  amount of coke nro*
known fact that the smelters in the   .,_.
immediate vicinity suffer from ehort
age in the supply of coke.    The cost
of transportation, owing to the long
haulage,  makes coko very expensive
and there Is no doubt but that the
smelter companies   will    welcome
supply when it can be provided at
lower cost, and If the duty is taken
off conl exported from Canada to tbe
United Statca, that will naturally In
crease your profits.
With capable and vigorous management, thero is no valid reason why
your mine should not produce a much
greater profit tban that made by
coal mines not so favorably situated.
Most of you ara aware that one mine
working on only H small scale during
Inst yonr made over $200,000 net pro
fit, and there is no reason why your
company should not shortly be In a
position to do double that amount
of husluess and make a larger profit,
owing to the many natural advantages you possess. On your property aro nine coal seams, three of
which so tar huve been proved by development work, consequently there
is not much danger ot the coal men-
stircs  becoming   rapidly    exhausted.

The King's Guests
Those who are Invited to spend a
few days with tho King at Windsor
are sometimes apt to be rather overcome by tho grandeur Uiey find, and
an excess of shyness, something like
stago fright, Is In somo cases of flrst
visits the inevitable accompaniment of
tho ilrst evening at the Castle.
Iu Queen Victoria's timo guests
were bidden only lo dine and sleep.
Thereforo all they saw ot tbelr Royal
hostess was comprised in a few mlnutos con versa tlon.iu the drawing-room

be near tbe Queen at the dluncr-
This Is nil altered now; guests aro
bidden lo stop two or three days, and
ConsoQUontly see much more of the
King and Queen than in former times.
Tho question of dress always is a
groat problem with the ladles commanded to Windsor Castle, for, Instead of acquiring only one smart
evening toilette nud suitable Jewels
for a dine and sleep visit of one night,
quite * trousseau must be laid in for
tbree or four days' etay, No partlo
ular dress ia required on arrival, as
guests are dbown at onco to tbelr
rooms, but next morning It ls necessary to appear rather smartly dressed
tor breakfast, which ls quite a formal
meal at the Castle.
Then another change of toilotto Is
required when tho time comes to join
Uie shooters at luncheon, and yot another on returning to the Castle for
flvo o*clock tea. Kvery night, too,
a different toilette must be worn, suitable to tho Itoyal surroundings, and
proportionately expensive.

Once the Idol of
the Public and the
Terror of Managers, Now Plays
to Want
HOW many of the beauties of thc stage,
where the auditorium has been
thronged with thousands of their
admirers, inspire true love? How many,
carrying things with a high hand over managers and playwrights, can feel assured even
of food and shelter)
One of the tragedies of thc real life which, on
the stage, is often so infinitely more romantic
than any of its dramas, has reached its climax
of poverty and wretchedness in Paris,
garcd, hungry, disfigured, forsaken, a young
woman whose beauty and grace have been
lhe delight of two hemispheres, in the height
of her youth and her triumphs has met misfortune sucli as only the most unhappy of
her profession suffer.

Odetle, thc gny nnd heedless Odette, was the las*

beauty. Kve). full knowledge of the certainly sho

■ave her.
From the dazzling summit of her fresh successes,
■where men fought for her favors, .Odette Valery suddenly fell Into worse than nothingness. She whn
hnd been the toast and desire of the whole Boy world
et Paris could not now paiyi on the streets unnoticed lu the fafe obscurity of thc merely common-
j.l.i. e-ti.ol.in;- girl. -She was too hideous, too repulsive to escape Into humanity's pitiful oblivion.
t What was worse, the supersensitive spirit of the
artipt, whose most brilliant work has always been

poignantly thuu--would the proudest society leader in
tbe land.
Odette, the fascinating Odette, hnd never depended on anything but her beauty, where other
-Women ran rely on position, wealth, brilliancy or, ns
many of them do, religion.   Poor, pretty Odette had
rone of these; slie had beauty only, which was moro
than enough. Without lt, her proud nnd hatefully
humiliated soul could see no life thnt was endurablo
within the sight of others. She could only hide herself, like some poisoned kitten, and. In miserable
secrecy, await lho inevitable end.
Odette would have died, quite gladly, but for one
thing. Whatever she had been, there wns something
deep down in her heart which kept her still a
woman. Nona's ruin might full on her; Bhe herself
might he no stronger against dire fate than Zola's
wretched demirep. But her short lifo of renvoi in
riches, admiration nnd conquest haa given her a child.
.And so, Odelte hus lived.
Hers Is one of those figures of thc stage that return thc mind's eye with no effort of recollection,
compelling as the hypnotic gaze of tho serpents shu
twines about hcr in her most sensual dance, Sa-
lammbo was no more capable of searing her image on
the memory of Ma tho than Valcry hers upon all he-
holders. Even In her street attire, sbo was a woman
to make people turn and sture because of lier beauty,
as now they stare because of her hidcousness.
Pour yenrs, and a little more, mark Iut translation from mediocrity to the stars, nml back again,
but now to depths previously unknown lo her.

from nowhere; often, whon a new and brilliant queeii

WAs of that kind.
Uut she was young; she was lovely; sho could
dance; so what mattered her paternity, if sho happened to have any? When Isadora Duncan wus striving to make good her classic dancing, the exquisite
Odette, with vastly less pretension to art, was giving
Parisians the sensations felt by the Athenians of a
couple of thousand yenrs before.
In those days she was a music hall attraction—
steadily progressing as a popular favorite, but still
only one of the "artistes" of the popular song-and-
ilance places, whose position was different from lhat
which attends the debut there, these later yenrs. of
some notable Ugure of the dramatic world.

future ha8 no frowns; It shall he roso-eolorod when
they're 80. Meanwhile, they await tlio coming of »c—«
