ORANBROOK,    B.    0.      SATURDAY       MORNING   JULY    11,    1914.
Masonic Lodge at
A fraternal visit was paid by a
representative group of tho members
ill Oranbrook Lodge of A. P. & A.
M. to Uie Columbia Lodge at Windermere last week-end. The party
consisted of Mesdaines Wilson, Crun-
ston, Burton and McKowan and
Messrs. W. H. Wilson, L. J. Cranston, WSbBter Burton, Hnrry McKowan, Walter Halsall, Jack Martin,
Harry Spence, Harry Bnntleld, Wm.

in the cars of Messrs. W. H. Wilson,
Wefcpter Burton, Wm. MacDonald and
W. S. Santo.
The services of Christian Troyer,
a veteran actor of Panklnml Bros.,

kept the party In roars of laughter
all Saturday afternoon.
Windermere lodge was visited on
Saturday when the second degree was
put on and the usual business of t-he
lodge conducted. A sumptuous banquet waa afterwards partaken of, Lhe
rest of the evening passing mont
pleasantly in song, toast, speech and
story. After the parting, tho brethren felt that Windermere lodge had
attempted to lienor their guests with
their best and had succeeded admirably.
Owing to a wash-out at the junction of the roads at Dutch Creek It
was impossible to make communication with Cranbrook on Sunday and
although many would have liked to
bave been in the city on Mondny
they had perforce to remain till the
bridge was safe to cross. The people In the whole district seemed to
vie with one another in showing
kindness to thoir visitors, notably
Mr. Barry who placed his fine Packard card (in charge of the irresistible Godfrey Vigne) at their entire
service, and Mr, Stark, the genial
host of the Invermwe Hotel who
mode everything so comfortable and
pleasant during the unexpected sojourn at his beautiful lionteltry.
The beauty and grandeur of tbe
scenery in the lake district cannot
be conveyed ln a few words, nor even
a few chapters, on paper. It has to
he seen and once is not enough. It
Is too great and grand and beautiful to fully appreciate in one short
visit. Some of the places visited
were Sinclair Hot Springs, Fairmont
Hot Springs, Geo. Johnston's ranch '
(where Jack Martin and Harry Ban-'
field ate up all his strawberries, To-'
by Creek, and Premier Lake. Old [
Cranbrook friends   were seen at Ca
nnl Flats where Kite Small is running
an up-to-date hotel and Fred Small
hnsl a lino general Btore,
The return to the city was made
on Monday in ideal weather, the sun
shining ovory minute of the day and
thu dust on the roads having heen
lllld by tlu rain of Saturday and
Tuesday tho shibboleth was "How's
your noBe?"

Manitoba Elections
Reports from Manitoba indicate
that tho Roblln government has been
r.'turned with a safe majority. In a
number of constituencies the Liberals supported independent candidates. In Winnipog the Socialists
had candidates in every city riding;
outside of Winnipeg the contest was
left to the nominees of the Conservative and Liberal parties.
Elections were deferred in three
constituencies, La Pas, Churchill-Nelson nnd Grand Rapids.
At Iberville Amte Bernard, Conser-
votive, was elected by acclamation.
Winnipeg city elected Independent
nnd Socialist candidates.
Up to this time of going to press
the election stood 27 Conservatives,
and 21 Liberals.
Indians in Trouble
A report received at Cranbrook
from Windsrmere is to the effect that
a half-breed named Domlnick Nicholas, while beating his borse on tbe
Indian reserve, ail miles south of
Windermere, was remonstrated with
by a Kootenay Indian named Honest
Sam. The half-breed Domlnick is alleged to have hit Sam on head with
a stick, instantly killing him. Domlnick has taken to the mountains and
is being sought by Indian and provincial police. He is young, strong
and hot-headed and may possibly put
up a hard fight before being captured.
Passing of Jos. Chamberlain
London, July 3.—Rt. Hon. Joseph
Chamberlain died here last night.
His death, which removes one of tbe
most striking figures of British politics ln the past generation, came as
a surprise, as the condition of his
health was not publicly known to bc
any worse tban at any time in the
last two or three years.
Mrs. Chamberlain, who never left
her husband's side since ho was
stricken with paralysis seven years
ago,' and his son, Austin Chamberlain, were with Mr. Chamberlain
when death occurred at 10.30 o'clock
last night at his London residence.
Thc event cast a gloom over the London season, which wns at its height.
Mr. Chamberlain's Inst public appearance was at a garden party on
the grounds of his Birmingham home
on May li lust, when, with his wife
and son, he received severnl hundred
constituents. Mr. Chamberlain wnn
wheeled out on the lawn in a chair
and appeared teeblo when he lifted
hla hat to friends and neighbors in
acknowledgment of their salutes.
The cause of Mr. Chamberlain's
death waa announced as heart failure. Although he had heen gradually sinking since Tuesday, members of
the family had preferred his condition should not become publicly
A singular circumstance about Mr.
Chamberlain's death is that whilo
the event occurred In London as early aa 10.30 o'clock laat night, the
news only becamo generally known
this morning.
Speculation Is rife today ns to
how far the passing away of the
great Imperialist will affect the pnrty which he once commanded with
such Immense influcncn. Mature, nonpartisan opinion seems tn hold thut
Mr. Chamberlain's death may place
the tariff reform Unionists in the
shadow. It Is often asserted In reliable quarters that their present Influence in the party councils is chief
ly due to the fact that they still
succeed in maintaining a substantial
hold on the party's purse strings,
but that otherwise the extreme tariff
is a purely negligible factor.
Mr. chamberlain's death will certainly have little or no effect either
way upon the existing Irish situation. There are those who are of the
belief that his death may result in a
partial break-up of the overpowering
domination which "Joe" Chamberlain and his family have exercised in
Birmingham for nearly forty years
past. One of Mr. Chamberlain's earliest lieutenants in Birmingham, Sir
Benjamin Stone, died only yesterday.
Jesse rollings, another lifelong political ally, recently resigned. The
course of nature haa Inexorably
thinned the ranks of the solid band
which made tho name of Birmingham
synonymous with that of Chamberlain.
Mr. John Redmond said today:
"Although Ireland in tbe past has
had bitter memories of Mr. Chamberlain's career, the Irish people are
generous and those hitter memories
arc long forgotten. He was a great
Sir Richard McBrlde, on being apprised yesterday morning by the
Colonist of the death of Mr. Chamberlain, expressed the keenest sorrow at the news, saying:
"I am suro I but voice the sentiment of the whole of British Columhla whi>n I say that the news of the
death of the Ht. Hon. Joseph ('hum-
herlain occasions the most profi .mil
"Whli' It hns long hem felt that
we could never hopo to see Mr.Chamberlain back In public life again, yet
the punning of so eminent a statesman constitutes a real loss to the
"As Colonial Secretary Mr, Chamberlain   rained   the   overseas Dominions to a now status, and JiIb   great

C.P.R. Re Hosmer
Conservative Assn. Meeting Z;^J
Requisition Presented to Mr. A. E. Watts
For Federal Honors
On Thursday evening a mooting of
the Central Cistrict Conservative Association was held in the committee
rooms on Hanson avenue.
After the general routine business
was completed Mr. J. P. Fink introduced the question of forming a Fed-
oral Oonseryatlve Aasoclation covering the new district brought Into existence under tbe new Re-dlstributlon
Act, and a committee for tbat purpose was appointed.
Mr. Fink also took up the mattor
of tbe requisition recently presented
to Mr. A. E. Watts of Wattsburg to
stand as a candidate for the Federal
House, and stated that it was up to
the people of this district to select
a local man, if possible, to represent them at Ottawa and he was
pleased to move a resolution endorsing the steps already taken by a
large number of leading citizens of
the city and district.
Mr. Fink's resolution was seconded
by Mr. T. Caven, the local member
of the Provincial House, who stated:
"That a strong and more determined advocate than Mr. Watts of the
policy they wished to follow in this
riding it would be difficult to find."
The above resolution was heartily
endorsed by the meeting.
Mr. Watts being presented replied
very appropriately and outlined the
policy he wished to see carried out
and concluded by thanking the Association for tbe confidence implied in
their endorsement of the resolution
as moved by MessrB. Fink and Caven.
The requisition referred to in   Mr.
Fink's resolution reads as follows:
A. E. Watts, Esq.,
Wattsburg, B, C.
"Dear Sir:
"We, the undersigned, realizing the
need of a representative in Parliament who can protect antl watch the
great and Important Industries of
our district, and appreciating your
efforts during the past years in writing, speaking, and working to secure
much-needed legislation for the encouragement and protection ot such
industries, on tbe prosperity of which
so many depend tor a   livelihood,
"We believe, if elected to the Dominion Parliament, you could accomplish great good tor our district; we
therefore request that you permit
your name to stand as a candidate
in tbe forthcoming election.
Should you consent, we hereby
pledge you our support and influence,
(Signed) Signatures of
Leading citizens and residents of tbe district.
On Monday the 6th inst., a large
delegation of the Influential residents
of the District waited uuon Mr. A.E.
Watts and presented him with the
above requisition fully signed and In
reply thereto he said:
In reply to the requisition signed
by such influential citizens, I should
lack human feeling it I failed to appreciate the high honor you wish to
bestow upon me. Your requisition I
take as a command, that I attempt
to fulfill a duty for the good of the
community, tf the people wish it, I
wlll obey tbe command.
It must be by the free wlll ot the
people, 1 have no money with which
to buy votes nor will I bo a party
to asking friends to supply the means
to intlucncco the unwilling.
All f can oiler aro the last few
yi ars of life and the uso of the abilities Providence bus given ,me, but all
I have is at your command.
I will give all my time, energy and
ability ln every way, but moro than
that 1 am unable to do, or would 1
do it, and bo help to win tbo honor
you wish to bestow upon mc.
Ono of the speakers aaked me to indicate what lino of action I would
take If elected regarding the lumber
Industry. Some of the speakers have
criticized thc work or wbat they
term lack of interest of former representatives who after election toll
us to bc quiet and behave ourselves
no matter how distressed or hungry
the populace may bo. In reply I may
say that I do not claim to have the
capacity or ability to do that which
others could not do. I have shown
you the voluminous correspondence
between myself and the politicians
and bankers of Canada and by that
the great difficulties can be seen.
However, I will explain what I
advise and would work for and that
Is simply that British Columbia, being greatly intereat ln the production of lumber, should work in unison with the produoers of food stuffs
(the flrst necessity of the human
family), the producers of which need
protection and more than that, paternalism or Governmental assistance along the lines of those wblch
made once poor but now prosperous
Dontnaifi famous.
Wc must not forgot that in order
to obtain consideration from othera
we must give the same to them.
This fact is realized by Conservatives, Liberals and Socialists and it
gives me the keenest pleasure to see
that prominent members of the
three parties have joined in signing
tbe requisition, and all agree that
tljis first duty of politicians is to protect Canadian industries and first and
foremost the producers of the means
of existence, if tbey are not prosperous all other industries must suffer;
and whether I am Bent to Parliament or not I shall continue to urge
the authorities to borrow, say, one
hundred million dollars for an experiment and to loan the money at a
low rate ol Interest to the farmers
for the purpose of buying improved
stock of all kinds, to build dairies,
elevators, and do all thinga in a
practical way to assist the really
honest workers to avoid paying exorbitant interest for financial accommodation to carry on the most important business In the world—the
production of food—and thereby supply the teeming population of tbe
cities with cheaper means of existence.
Also to provide work for many by
grinding wheat into flour instead ot
shipping the raw product, and keep
tbe residue at home to feed animals
to provide cheaper meat to assist
the real producers ol wealth and
thereby attract other industries.
Next, work in unison with the farmers, the producers, lumber manufacturers to undertake to supply
their product at a price to be regulated by the Government giving   the
manufacturers only a fair profit in
their work and investment, and also
limit the retailer as to his profit,
then BBk the farmers to assist the
lumber producer, to assist thom ln
keeping the lumber trade for Canadians by the imposition of a duty
jirnt enough to allow of a fair pro
lit for capital Invested and GOOD
No class appreciates the exhibition
of fellow-feeling and needs the paternal cars of the Government more
than the hard working farmer and
his family, even from a selfish point
of view it is to our own intereat to
seen that thoy get fair play. It Is
not my wish to embarrass nor place
our Government in a dilemma, but
rather to assist in winning the support and approval of those who will
shortly be the rulers of <the destiny of
Canada, and the party that can accomplish that will have a Arm hold
on the hearts of tbe people, and
tbat party's tenure of office will be
unshakeable as long as ample justice
to all ia applied.
Having assisted in winning the
good human feeling of the farmer,
we can ask for and will I am cer
tain win his support ln obtaining
fair-play (pr other industries, like the
lumber business, which has been exploited and uaed by political fakirs
to the most cruel extent.
No farmer I am certain wishes to
damage his fellow-men but he has
been filled up with the most exasperating lies and in my opinion all
that is needed is to give the farmer
fair-play, a taste of the milk of human kindness, and down-trodden in
dustries will flourish, provided only
that Canada's earnings from her
vast resources are kept within the
Dominion, that simple means that we
protect all Industries but one which
has been made the target and the
butt of selfish politicians and which
is now in the last stage ot existence. Thirty millions ol dollars of
Canadian earnings have annually
crossed the Une never to return. This
might have been expended amongst
the workers of Canada, and the sole
reason it has gone and is going still
Is through the work cf political fakirs whom our Government is afraid
ot. But it is my opinion tbat tbis
can be arranged to the satisfaction
of those who have been hitherto duped by the political fakirs referred to.
ThiB is the policy I have preached
and written for years past and you
send me to the Dominion Parliament
I will continue the fight and no influence of political machines nor cor
portions will satisfy my voice nor
dry up the flow of the ink from my
I am and always hope to be a
a satt'nch Imperialist, a Conservative, tho nearest approach to a
practical Socialist, that' it to conserve the boney for tbe working
bees, to sting and exterminate the
drones, and scrape off the barnacleB
from the Ship of States, to clean
out our own Augean Stable^ in matters political.
If you send me to the Dominion
Parliament and I do not do my duty, I will submit to the modern
method of recall, which in my opinion Bhould be applied to politicians,
judgea and all public servants.

Calgary, Alberta, July 8,—In order
to got a better understanding ol the
closing dowu of the Hosmer mine by
tb' Canadian Paolflc Hallway, eon-
cernlng wblch some criticism has been
made through the press recently yi dr
correspondent obtained the following
interview with Mr. Dennis, Assistant
to the President, Cnnadlnn Pacific
"Since the company established tbe
Hosmer mine six years ago," snid
Mr. Dennis, "considerable sums of
money have been spent In developing
It and endeavoring to make it a
large and permanent collier, but ior
the past two years it has neen ' in
nt a steady monthly loss. When we
realized that thero was no chance of
developing this colliery on a reasonable financial basts, wo reluctantly
concluded, becauso the collier was operated only for our own needs ind
tn supply coke for thc Trail Bmeltcr,
to closo It down. It did not oven
supply sufficient coal for out own use
and was therefore never ln the market for the sale of coal, and you cnn
readily see that It was not a Bound
business proposition,"
Wc realized," continued Mr. Dennis, "that the closing down of this
mlm would cause some Inconvenience
to the minors, and that we would be
reducing employment In the Cm"
Nest District, and I cnn Bay with regret that if we could have even operated tho coal mine to moot '.'xpenscs
lt would not now bo closed."
"What about the townsite, and
those who will now be left witb property practically on their hnnds?"
"The C.P.R. had nothing whatever
to do with the establishment of a
townsite at that point," replied Mr.
Dennis, "thc townsite is not situated
on the C.P.R. property, and was laid
out by a local syndicate .who bought
from the Crows Nest Pass Coal com
will be great hardship suffered by the
miners through loss of employment in
this mine, as as wc cnn employ some
of them in our other collieries, anil as
there are many other collleres scattered through the Crows Nest Pass
where they can tind work; there is no
dnlibt some hardship for people who
have bought land laud are living iu
tiie townsite above referred to) owing to cloelog down, but I don't
think that the 'C.P.R. can in nny
scnBc be held responsible for tboic
who bought land In that townsite,
as tN'y bought property there, and
took their chance In establishing
thamsolvos In a town ot thnt kind
with thc full knowledge ol wbnt they
wire doing, ami particularly lu view
of trouble that arlBos nt all coal
mining towns, resulting from closing
down ot thc mines owing to sh irtage

Is Paternalism Advisable?
Specially Contributed by J. F.
A great deal has already been writ- an isolated case.   There must be doz-
ten and,   before the   last word   has;ens and dozens of   such    enterprises
been spoken, a great deal more will
undoubtedly be written on the subject tbat Mr. Watts so ably touched
upon in our last week's issue—"Paternalism" and the relationship between Government and Agriculturist.
There are many diversities of opinion expressed by men competent and
capable to deal with tbis question;
but as regards the fundamental rule
that all, or tbe greater part, of
country's welfare and prosperity depends on and follows in the train of
its agricultural achievements, there
can be no two contrary opinioni
He would indeed be a rash man who
would deliberately deny that tbe agricultural progress of a country wns
inseparably bound up with and regulated ln the major part by the attitude of its Government towards the
agricultural portion of its community. A study of the comparative histories of the younger Colonies of the
British Empire will amply demonstrate the truth of this assertion. In
Australia each successive Government
during the past few decades has added to and amplified the legislation of
its predecessors in this connection,
and though the work of a preceding
Government has often been altered,
or even totally abrogated, by a lat-
party in power, only one idea,
only one motive, has prompted them
all impartially—that of increasing
nnd foHtcring its agricultural possibilities and riches. Not only is the
net tier now encouraged and Invited
to settle and special and great facilities offered bim in getting to and locating in the country but special officers  of   the   Govern nwn t   are   ap-
fostered in infancy by a paternal
Government have thrived and, in return, amply repaid their benefactors.
The agriculturist of New Zealand is
in very much the Bame enviable position, fhe land tenure scheme there
is us simple in its nature as It Ib efficient in its results, Thc principle is
just this: No occupation, no title!
The settler applies for his chosen
site, and, with comparatively little
cost, nay! with sometimes a special
grant, he can start his farming operations. Whilst he is in actual and
continuous occupation of hiH ground
bis title is indefeasible and he can
deal with his land in exactly tbe
same manner, and h ■ has precisely
the same rights and privileges in regard thereto, as a man with full freehold title elsewhere, He can dispose
of it by sale or by will but bis successor in tith is, of course, subject
to the same conditions as regards occupancy. The only condition precedent is personal occupation. In this
manner is the speculator in farming-
lands effectually dealt witb. It will
occur to some that the nature of this
title would debar the holder from
raising loans thereon. But this is
where the Government exercises that
far-seeing Paternalism referred to by
Mr. Watts. The Government has a
special reserve fund which, subject to
certain conditions, to all intents and
purposes lieB at the request and disposal of the settler. This fund is
dedicated to the granting of loans to
settlers at a nominal rate Qt interest, the amount of such loans being
regulated and calculated on the ratio of the valUS of Improvements ef-
polnted whose sole work is to visit fected on the land. Furthermore the
and to report in detail on tne perse- agricultural community Is bound to-
vtrance anil progress of every indi- gether by powerful co-op'native or
vtdUat arttler, and, according to associative ties nud the latest sott-
tliese r 'ports, monetary ami other
facilities are readily obtainable,
Furthermore, the settler Ih encouraged to make applications for such fa
dUtlm. We need not here point out
tlu* position Austrnllu now holds in
the agricu'tural and produce worlds.
In other branches of enterprise the
same conditionn obtain, find
within the personal knowledge
associative ties and the latest
ler is as certain of a market for his
prpduce as the oldest pioneer, and
furthermore these associations if not
entirely under Government control
work hand in hand with tho Govern
ment and are carefully fostered and
encouraged by every possible means.
In Houth Africa-at nny rate up to
it is the present—the paternalism of the
of tbo .Government of the Union hns been
writer that tn at leant one case Of,largely of a negative, but none the
private enterprise thn Government less (nr-soolng kind. They have plnc-
went out of its way to make tbat ,>d a han upon tbe immigrant with

such facilities as have Im-ii mention- wisely realized by the Government
ed'above,   And this is by no   means. (Continued on Page   2.) THE PROSPECTOR, CRANBROOK, B.C.

No. 2$.
The resolution submitted on Thursday evening last at the meeting of
the Central District Conservative Association, to which reference is made
olsewhere in this issue, Ib one that
cannot fail to arouse a very considerable interest among all sections o!
our growing community. In view
the fact that there is no immediate luan
prospect of an appeal to the   people "tinctively turns v   th:,  •;•,■       ii:.
by the Borden Government the resolution may appear somewhat   prematura to some, but to those who have|
followed   the    career of the man

criBes produce great men, and it is
not stretching the auology too far to
claim that in the local phase of the

all shadea of political opinion,
friends and critics al.»;e of Mr.

has given loyal allegiance and ungrudging service all his life. If this
remarkable unanimity is an expression of confidence in Mr. Watts, it is
likewise significant of a new spirit
at work in the community, a spirit
that is abroad the world over finding varying expression under different
environments. This is the spirit
that calls aloud for men to lead us
—men distinguished from professional
politicians, men whose integrity of
character and sheer rugged honesty
of purpose iB beyond question. There
are Biirely few, even among the more
unthinking portion of iour community
who can fail to realise that tnis Canada of ours Is passing through a
period   of   reconstruction, not finan-
of the local papers that bylaw No.' 13$ authorizing the raisins
of $110,00U for tbe purpose of improving the water system of tbe city
has again to be brought before them
to be voted upon. The reason of
this is owing to some kind of red
tape or a Blight technicality as to
the security given by the City in consideration of the loan of the money
borrowed which has since been found
to be deficient by the company's representatives in Toronto. In bringing tbis Bylaw before the people for
the second time it Is only witb the
intention of securing the ratepayers'
approval to adding the security of
the City to the papers necessary for
obtaining this loan as an extra
guarantee of good will. This proceeding is coming up every day of
the week in the ordinary business affairs of any city; every business man
cial merely, hut moral also, .since ev- knows this, and it is to be hoped that
ery great question ia at root a mor-  on the 23rd of   this month the   rate
payers will go to tbe polls and support the Council in this aa well   as
they did in the original vote.

In another column of this issue

of Mr. Watts and in addition gives
further references an to why "Paternalism is Advisable," as wel] um
stating the necessity of such mens
ureB being taken in the interests of
the fanner and settler. Following
tha communication received we have
added the suggestions of the Provincial Itoyal Commission as to mortgage loans to fanners in B. *'.. the

they had been located fur some yean
near Medicine Hat on a 300-acre piece
of land. The land was good, they
said, but thc want uf irrigation waa
thc cause absolutely of tholr bad
crops. For the laBt two or thrae
yeara Ihcy had been getting disheartened with thc prospects and so they
lit Inst decided to look for freBh

were not takon up with thc prospects

that there were many difficulties to
be overcome, difficulties ol labor, of
marketing and of Irrigation, difficulties peculiar to the country, whic
militate tremendously against the
small bolder and capitalist and until
the anticipated schemes of irrigation
and co-operative control have been
perfected they refuse to harbor the
struggling settler. And, under all
circumstances, rightlyl But meanwhile a sum of (15,000,000 has been,
cr will shortly be, appropriated to
several comprehensive schemes which
will make possible the success ol
small holders and capitalists. Centred control nnd irrigation schemes
in conjunction with increased facilities for marketing are the basic principles involved.
Now British Columbia has none ol
the difficulties to contend with that
Australia, and more especially Soutb
Africa, (with its droughts, It's labour
troubles, its black problem, Its
plagues) has fought against and conquered. To Its hand lies a fair country surrounded by conditions pre-eminently favourable to its becoming
one of the foremost amongst the agricultural countries of the world. Its
progress cannot be retarded by such
obstacles, internal and external, as
beset some other countries. Only—the

which alone can guarantee the mature and solid prosperity tbat Ib this

What We Need Throughout the
Whole Dominion Is Being Done!
In British Columbia
In British Columbln a Provincial
Hnyiil Commission him reported in
favour ot mortgage loans to (arm-
wa. It la suggested that a credit
commission should lie created, with
power to borrow money bv the issue
of stock or debentures to run (or 3G|
years and bearing Interest at 4 per
cent. The money thus obtained would
be loaned to (armors [or permanent
Improvements and productive undertakings. There would bo inquiry into the character of applicants nnd
tho land to be mortgaged, It is suggested that no loan Bhould exceed GO
per cent, of the value of the land
held as security, that not less than
1250 nor more than $10,000 should lie
loaned to any (armor, nnd that applicants for Bums of $2,oni) and under should havo priority. Tli' Com-
mission also advocates co oparntlon
in marketing. In contrast with ttio
opinion of pralrlo grain growers It
argues that the Customs duties on
agricultural products aro necossrtry
nml reasonable. Finally, the organisation of a news sorvlco to collont
ami disseminate information covering
supply ami demand in tho produ •■
mai'.ets is recommended.
Acquisition of Land in New
South Wales
There ttie Do free grants of land in
New Houth Wales, tint farms ami He
loottoni may be obtained cheaply on
various terms, of which space will
allow us to give only a short summary. PrlCOS are fixe.I by ilu- Do
partitiont of Lauds and range Irom
Cl per acre upwards. The Stale is
divided into three districts the east
ern, the 'central, and tho western -
and conditions vary in each of them.
A Belootor, if not a natural-born or
naturalised Brltleh Bubject, may not
apply for land until he has resided In
the Btato for twelve months and haa
lodged a declaration of Ins intention
to become naturalised within live
years. Applieant* must have reached
an age which varies from sixteen to
twenty-one years. Settlers nre ul-
lowod under certain conditions to
take up additional holdings.
Homestead selections are limited in
area to 1,280 acres. The rental is li
per cent, on the unimproved value
for the flrBt Bix years or until issue
of grant and 2j per cent, thereafter,
in addition to the survey foe. The
land is re-valued every fifteenth year.
A dwelling-house, worth at least £20,
muBt be erected within eighteen
months after confirmation of the application. Perpetual residence is
compulsory. By registering his holding the selector may secure himself
against deprivation in case of bankruptcy or action (or debt. The lease
iB perpetual, but may be converted
into a conditional purchase. If residence Is by deputy the rental is fixed
at 3J per cent, (or the first term,
and the value of the residence erict-
ed must be at least £40.
Conditional Purchases.—The area
varies from 40 acres up to 640-in the
eastern division and 2,560 in the central division. The price of th.3 land
is usually £1 per acre and ie payable in yearly instalments of 9d or
ls. in the £, together with interest
at 2. per cent, on the unpaid balance. Residence is compulsory for
ten years, and improvements must be
effected to the value of 6s. for each
£1 of purchase money within three
years and 10s. within five years of
Immigration from the Old Country to Tasmania
Tasmania will in course of time
support a far larger population than
at present. While the prosperous
condition of tbe mainland States has
to some extent diverted attention
•elsewhere In late years, such a state
of affairs cannot be permanent. A
system of nominated immigration is
in force, under which the State will
contribute £9 towards a woman's
(are, £6 (or a man, and £4 10s. for
a child .under 12 years of age. No
male immigrant, married woman or
widow must be over 45 years of age,
nor any single woman over 35 years.
Reckoning the fare nt £14 (third
class, open berth) tin1 nominator
must deposit £8 for eacb male, \::\
for each female, aud £2, 10s. for
each child between the ages of 3 and
12 years. If the fare costs more
than £14, the balance must be paid
by the nominator, who must reside
in the State and guarantee that employment wlll be found for the immigrants on arrival or that adequate provision will he made for
tbem, and that they shall take up
permanent residence in Tasmania.
Nominees must be approved hy the
Agent-General. Up to the end of
1910 a total of 21,691) emigrants to
Tasmania had received assistance.
The State Agricultural Hank is empowered to make advances to selectors who hold land on the credit-purchase system ln order to enable them
to improve their holdings. The
amount of the loans varies from £25
to £500. No advance may exceed
one-half of the amount actually paid
to thc drown (or the land together
with half the present value of the
Improvements. Tho rate of Interest.
Is G per cent, per annum; repayments commence five years after the
advance Is made, and may extend
over twenty-five years, or less at the
borrower's option. Preliminary valuation fees must be paid by the up
piieant. t'H.oio was advanced under these terms in 1911.
Rural land Is divided Into three
classes, according to quality, and

land is within a mining area when

selector may be represented by one
of his family or by an agent. Improvements must be effected to the
extent of 2s. 6d. per acre per annum
for the first eight years on flrst-
class land, Ib. for five years on second-class land, and 6d. for five years
on third-class land, before the balance of the purchase money can he

Discusses Problem
of Asiatic Menace
The Asiatic menace was referred to
in a Btirrlng speech delivered l>y Sir
inn Hamilton. Inspector-General of
the overseas forces, at the civic reception tendered to him in thc Auckland Town Hall, says The Auckland
Weekly News.
The general aald that he had come
to a great city nnd to the Town
Hall where he had heen feted and
complimented. "I wish under such
circumstances," he continued, "to
endeavor to make some return (or
your great kinrinosB. In thinking ov-
the question this morning it
struck me that ln so great a city
I might take this opportunity to answer the question which has both
directly and indirectly heen asked of
me throughout my tour, from south
to north. This question was: Why,
when we are expecting the millennium, do we tind practical and prosperous countries like Australia and
Now Zealand furbishing up their
nrmor of defence? I would l?:e to
answer that question, not in the
usual obvious way, but rather in the
abstract way."
The general than touched briefly j
upon the obvious rensons. "The flrst
of tbe obvious reasons," he said, "Is ,
tbe shrinkage of distance, through
the advent of electricity, steamships, |
aeroplanes, nnd high explosives (so
high that a shot from a M In gun
could kill a man twenty miles away).
These things, no doubt, have brought
remote dangers nearer,
"Thon," he continued, "there ls the
obvious reason that in the Pacitic
great nations have either risen in
the last 100 years or else old nations are in a wonderful manner
showing signs of marvelous energy.
Even as volcanoes, long quiescent,
break again into activity with disturbing sounds, so it is with some of
the old nations of the Pacific.
"The third obvious reason is that
thc Pacific, in spite of its peaceful
name, is more stormy than other distant oceans. While we would all deplore such a contingency, it Is conceivable that, apart from the storms
of nature, there may be greater and
more terrible convulsions than ever
in the past. That is to say the Pacific la the meeting ground, not of
nations but of continents. Here it
may be decided whether Asiatics or
Europeans are going to guide the
destinies of this planet. These are
more or less obvious reasons, but
tbere are others which I believe to
be real and true, although they are
more or less under the surface.
"Terrible things, for instance," he
continued, "are going on in the Malay States. Here can be seen a fine
people going under before tbe interests of low-class materialists—Chinese and coolieB, ■ brought into to work
for low wages. When I visited China
two years ago I saw on every side
that the country was waking up. Old
moral restraints had gone. I saw a
modernized Chinaman scratching his
name with a nail upon the Temple of
Heaven—a temple until recently bo
sacred that the Emperor alone might
approach it, and thnt only once a
year. This is but an illustration to
show tbe change from which is evolving chaos and confusion such as existed at the time of the French Revolution, from which Napoleon arose.
"In our own nation," he continued
"there are signs of danger to the
white race from the existence of the
materialistic factor. In l.adyamttb
during the Boer war the main street
was a thoroughfare containing prosperous European shopkeepers. What
a change bad been wrought when I
went there two yenrs ago to take Sir
George White's place as president of
Ladysmith. The shopkeepers had vanished and their places had been taken
by hunyahs and coolies, who exist on
a couple of meals of rice a day.
While these coolies have no constructive or progressive talent, they
have the knack of bundling and accumulating money to a nicety. This,
then, is the point of the story. This
is the reason why in the time of
progress and prosperity, Australia
and New Zealand are instinctively
facing the necessity of preparing for
defence. If people with high ideals
and standards are forced to live
cheek by jowl with people of low
standards and low Ideals they must
either become slave-drivers or sink
to the level of those by whom thoy
are surrounded, and thus he beaten.
"Of course," concluded the general,
"New Zealand ls still a long way ofl
from this danger, but Australia is
not so far off. When I look at tho
map It seems to me that New Zealand occupies the position of a llttlo
Bister, small In Blue, but eager, hanging behind the skirts of her big fat
sister -Australia. If dangor threatens Australia I feel porfectly confident that Now Zealand would always
bc ready to lend a hand to her bigger slater in the Antipodes." (Prolonged applause.) \)

Tunnel as a Memorial
London, June 88,—There are pros-
pectB of work on the Channel Tunnel being stinted next year, according to a statement just issued by the
Houu ol Commons Tunnel Committee, under tbe title of "The poettldn
of the Channel Tunnel queation in
May 1.U4." Thia representative committee of 100 membera could in* enlarged at any time, if desired.
Mr. Fell, M. P., win. writes the official statement, says.
"If the government o! Britain and
France desire to build the tunnel as
a joint national work tbe committee
will heartily support it. If the Government does not wish to take any
part in it, but will leave it to a
priAte enterprise they will support
the Channel Tunnel Company and the
two great railway companies    whiuh

rasing, while on tbe occasion of a
recent visit to the same veils with
Col. E. Mann, Olaus Jeldneaa, Fred
Loomis and 13. O, Sinclair, geologist, the plug wm removed from one
of the wells and the oil was found
to be up to the top of the casing,
which waB considered an excellent
showing for the amount of work
dene. The wells which have been
drilled in the district by the British
Columbia Oil company have been
found to he on the property of the
Flathead Petroleum company, according to Mr. Fisher, and tt is the
intention of that company to develop thc property thoroughly.
The Flathead Petroleum company
has shipped a sawmill into the district and cut lumber for the buildings and derrick which Ib in the
course of construction and it is ex-

Mr. Chamberlain wan the pioneer in
Great Britain of tariff reform, aud
the great advocate of Imperialism.
For thirty-eight yeara, with a brief
inter-regnum, he represented West
Birmingham in Parliament. Tn 1900
his career of stormy activities was
ended by a stroke ot paralysis. Tho
blow fell when he was In the midst
of a Btremnms campaign for the establishment of a protective tariff
with preference for the British col-
onleB, and just nfter his constituents
hud celebrated the thirtieth anniversary of hla first election.
Since that day the strong tighter

Mr. Chamberlain waa born in 1836.
His father was u shoe manufacturer

and young Joseph was reared to Hint

"The matter has now been before

Asquith informed the deputation
which waited on him on August 5
that the matter had been referred to
the Committee of Imperial Defence,
and it is understood that it has also been under the consideration of
the War Office, the Admiralty and
the Board of Trade. It is anticipated that the decision of the Govern- j
men will be known in a few weeks. If |
favorable, as expected, the bill would
be lodged with Parliament next session, and in the autumn of 1915 tbs

"It will be a date of good augury," Mr. Felt concludes. "The centenary of the peace between tbis

of the great link to hind the two
countries closer together, and to afford the two peoples better opportunities of knowing nnd appreciating

If a merchant or a manufacturer is willing to
spend good money for advertising, to ask you to
try his store or his product, it stands to reason
that he must have something worth offering.
Otherwise you would not go back, or you would
not again purchase the product, and the first sale
would be the last. In that case advertising would
NOT pay. It only pays when it brings continuous patronage, and to do that there mutt be reil
value tfiven. That is the reason advertised
stores or products are almost invariably good. It
will pay you to p.itroui/e the advertisers.
glea that Mr. Chamberlain took office In tbe Cabinet as Colonial Secretary.
That his influence in this position
was most marked and speedily attracted the attention of the world
bas already been stated. His well-
known Imperialism stimulated, in
England, interest in tbe colonies,
and even his opponents admitted
that he stirred Imperial feelings and
greater loyalty to the colonies themselves.
As Colonial Secretary, Mr. Chamberlain's remarkable powers were severely tested by South Africa—the
chain of strenuous events beginning
with Jameson's hare-brained raid,
and ending wben Lord Kitchener had
worn down the stubborn Boer resistance, with the Treaty of Vereenlg-
ing—but he stood the test. His enemies, too, assailed him as being the
droit tool of the Rand gold miners, and his course towards the Afrikanders was a leading issue in the
ampaign of 1900 and during 1901.
But he was tbe object of great popular demonstrations before his visit
to South Africa late in 1902 on a
mission of conciliation and observation and also on his return enrly in

set himself the task of fostering the

Just before his fi7th birthday, Mr.
Chamberlain  launched his scheme   of
llscal reform,  which  partly succeeded
in splitting the  Unionist party.     Tt
was in May  and at Birmingham that
he announced   his new   policy,    and
finding,  in  September,  that his  party  was not  ready  for so radical    a
cbanire,  he resigned  to devote   himself   to    popularising his   doctrines.
He fought  the rause with a   genius,
eloquence,    energy    and organization
I never equalled  In any  previous   mo-
iment   of   his    career, but his party
j wavered, and went down to defeat in
the election of 190G.   The une bright
spot for tbe Unionist party,   during
these   dark    days,    was Uirmingham

carried his candidates to victory.

The German Menace
The "National Review" for June
contains an article entitled "(ier
many and Ourselves," from thc pen
of Oapt. Bertrand Stewart, who was
for two years the inmate of a Gorman prison, and writes from personal experience.
His trial and oonvlction, which
raised a storm at tho time, will bo
remembered hy many,
"Let us," he writes, "understand
Germany's position.
"Rhe has learnt that the pulley of
open hostility to Kngland at all
times does not pay, because it Keeps
us tno much on tho qui vivo, and because it strengthens the hands of
those who urge that lull preparations should be made to meet nny
German act of agression. Hence a
show of friendliness hns been assumed In the hope that sho may obtain
concessions from ua, and thnt the
British nation, with its proverbially
short memory, will he lulled into a
feeling of false security. But what
Is really her present position as regards ourselves? There have been
pleasant speeches by the German
ambassador. But has there boen a
reduction of one soldier or one sailor
as a proof of thia friendliness? On
the contrary! If thc change of attitude Indicated a real change of feeling towards England, It should have
heen accompanied by at least a decrease in the German navy."
After dealing with the hunger for
more land which the German Government do their utmost to foster
amongst their people, and with the
teaching of some ot their leading
writers that this land can be most
easily obtained from ub by war or
threats of war, he adds: "But besides land and money there are
things of at least equal value to our
people which we should sacrifice were
we to give Germany her longed-for
opportunity. Those are freedom and
the right to Justice on all occasions." He then compares our system of justice with the German.
Among many extraordinary details
he tells us that a prisoner may be
kept six months in a cell waiting
lor a "trial timed to suit the "political exigencies of the moment. A
penniless 'agent provocateur,' the
creature ol the Government—and already convicted ol every sort of
crime—may try, but fall, to provoke
the commission of some act against
the law and yet be the only witness
against ths prisoner. This man's
perjury, admitted in the secrecy of
the Magistrate's room—as the Prosecution is careful to arrange—counts
for nothing. Then, worst of all, a
prisoner may be tried behind closed
doors despite all his protests; lying
statements, which the prisoner IB
given no chance to deny in public,
may he published for political purposes; and a judgment given absolutely contrary to the evidence and
admissions ol the Prosecution because it may be politically useful,
or an agitation may be in progress
lor more ships.
"AU this, according to their standard, is justice, and according to
tbeir view is right. Ib this, and the
Sabre Law exemplified at jZabern,
and the treatment of their conquered provinces, a system which the
most callous amongst ub would wish
to see Imposed on any of our people, whatever their race?
"We must realize that the preservation of the priceless blessings of
freedom and justice depends on our
beeping ourselves strong enough o
prevent Germany defeating us and
forcing lier system and her 'justice'
on our people.
"When Germany increases her armaments, we must do likewise. When
Germany reduces her armaments, wc
can think of doing likewise, but hot
till then.
"Never must we by any show of
friendliness or by any soft words,
whoover may ho the spokesman, bo
lulled Into a feeling of security. Tho
methods of tbe ruling clnss in Germany change, but behind it all, with
their ever-Increasing naval anil military forces, tbey always pursue their
unaltered aim. Co-operation throughout the Empire, real efficiency in all
branches of our defensive Services,
and ths readiness of everyone to take
his share ln the defence of the Mother Country and the great Dominions
can alone bring us security,"
Fears for Bank Clerk
Vancouver, B, C—While thero are
no definite clews on which to base
their theory, the police fear that C.
J. McQueen, a young bank clerk who
recently disappeared, may have heen
murdered by a gang of Russian bank
McQueen was a teller in tho Union
•l)ank here. Last fall he distinguished
himself by resisting a bank hold-up
at Haselton. Five weeks ago ho disappeared from Vancouver. His accounts are absolutely correct. At the
time he dropped from sight Russians
suspected of helng implicated In tho
northern robbery were tn Vancouvor
and the police think they mny hnve
killed McQueen because they (enrol ho
would identify them.
Mr. McQueen la a distant relative
ol Mr. W. Grant, ol thia city.
Lord Nelson—Old England's Great Naval Hero
WITHOUT Horatio Nelson, England would have been invaded and perhaps conquered by Napoleon. At Trafalgar he smashed forever the Bench
Emperor's hope of creating a naval power. Never was man more
idolized and beloved—not only by all of England's people who breathlessly
awaited news of his telling victories, but by every man of his fleet. A true
Anglo-Saxon,he detested tyrannous powers and legislative usurpations of every
kind. He was particularly opposed to prohibitive enactments governing die diet of I
his men,who,like him,enjoyed Barley-Malt brews, t__\ as their fathers did ___
countless generations before. Good beer, according to Lord Nelson, has ever been
good bod. Budweiser Deer for 57 years has been the product of an institution holding the highest ideals known
to the ancient art of brewing. The output,due to Quality and Purity, has increased evoy year until 7,500 men -
are daily required to keep pace with the public demand. Budweiser sales exceed any other beer by
millions of bottles.

Means Moderation
Well,   Mike,   thc papers   tell me   we
Kanucks have struck ile,
We've got a hundred gushers spouting out from many siles,
We've formed 1000 companies and all
have stock to sell
Though   many   haven't   30 centB   to
Btart a   flowing well.
But, Mike, it seems damn strange to
me that everyon; don't "take,"
For   none   are   more'n a 1000 miles
from some big flowing laVe.
But people have been fooled of yore;
for bloated stocks they bartered
And   found    instead    of    buying  '11
they'd bot dammed lots of water.
But yet I'm going   to start a   co.;
stock worth ten million dollars,
And I am   going   to   tell of    wells
started in all the hollers;
Por I have found that while   some
folks for only ile will spend,
I've found   meanwhile the rank   and
Hie will buy a heap of wind.
But now to tell the truth, old pal, I
ne.'d to make a showin',
Please lend to me a thousand   bucks
to get the thing a-goin.'
I  'tesB my  "stnfl"  has crosBed   the

And if I don't begin to bore, I fear
'twill hi me death.
And, strange to Bay, I must confess
I used to hate that stuff,
But now lt seems to mo tlmt I can't

Notice to the Electors
By-law No. 13S authorising the raising of |i 10,000.00 for the purpose of improving the water system of the City was passed by the Electors in the month of
June last. The debentures under this by-law were secured by the Water Charges
and Revenue of the City. The City Council made an excellent sale of the debentures under this by-law, namely, at 94, but the purchasers require the additional
guarantee of the general revenue of the municipality. This in no way increases
the taxation required to meet the debenture payments but as the purchasers of the
debentures have asked for this additional security, the Council have deemed it
prudent to agree with their request and are accordingly submitting a further by-law
on the 23rd of July complying with the request of the purchasers who are anxious
to take up the bonds on 01 before August ist. A copy of the proposed by-law will
be found in this issue.
