SessionBegins Musical Treat At The House RING OF        Nelson-Moyie   THE SOIL
Mr. Borden's Leadership
Endorsed. Opposition
Refuses to Consider
Resignation
On Wednesday evening Mr. llorden
for the first time in his experience as
a pmty leader found his advice refused und hiH policy rejected by the
Conservative members in caucus, it
was the first meeting o| the eleventh
parliament., and Mr. Borden had called the members .together to lay before
them his resignation of the leadership
with the recommendation that a second meeting be called to deal with
It. He dill n,-t propose tu attend
that meeting.
AN  ENTHUSIASTIC  BEGINNING.
Without a moment's hesitation the
caucus unanim„usly declared that it
would do nothing <(f the kind. There
was a spontaneous and universal an
nnunccment that the resignation
Would n0t bo considered. Change. ,,f
leadership was not to l.e thought of,
and the members absolutely rp.fu.--ed
to deal with the matter at all. Had
Mr. Boi'dtn returned to parliament at
the head of a triumphant majority,
the support of tlie party would not
have been mure enthusiastic and un
nnim0us. Commendations of Mr,
Borden, his policy and leadership in
parliament and the country, was especially significant on the part of
four new members from his own province, five from Manitoba and five
from British Columbia, who nil come
to Ottawa having captured scats
from the government, The chairman
of the meeting was Mr. Bui turd who
defeated the minister 0f inland reven
ue and mines, and among the speak
ers wh0 were .greeted with enthusiasm
was Mayor Crosby, Mr. Borden's colleague nnd associate in redeeming the
city and county of Halifax.
THK GOVERNMENT DISOURIHTKD
While the conservatives have been
defeated, they come to Ottawa with
a stronger delegation and with n
greater enthusiasm than in any time
since 189C. They hive a leader whe
has more inllucnce in the country
thm any other minister. They havt
a platform for which the government
h-ivo .^hjwn a much hh'her regard
than their own. They nre facing a
government which has come out ot
the election with nn insignificant majority of the popular vote, if indeed
it has n majority at nil. Outside ol
Quebec province a majority of the electors have condemned the administration. The administratFn has nls0
condemned the administration. This
administration ha.-- also been Convicted by Courts of its own appointment
and also the first d0cument laifl before parliament was a report by a
commission, confirming and strengthening a previous ending of another
Commission, both appointed by the
government, and both convicting one
of the great spending departments of
Incompetence, graft and lack nf conscience. It is thus the session begins.
A BARREN PROGRAM
The speech from the throne is long
nnd thin. In sume 1,500 words the
governor general ttatea thnt a tercentenary celebration was held, an international treaty agreed upon, thc
transcontinental pushed forward, the
Hudson Bay railway surveys begun,
a delegate appointed t,, the Opium
Convention at Shanghai, that Mr.
Fisher went to Italy, thot a grant
baa bem made to the earthquake sufferers. Then the government laments
that a financial depression has affected our trade and decreased 'he revenue, that immigration has inllm off
and that a Commission has been investigating the marine department.
The legislation premised is a bill
"aiming at the repression of the pay
ment of secret commissions and gratuities," nnd also "measures relative
to Insurance, the civil service, Immi
gratinu and naturalisation,"
This is little enough. The insurance
bill is the only difficult measure. Insurance legislation has been promised
and postponed In two previous ses
sions, and it is safe to say that It
will be postpone*! again, A mensure
may be Introduced but it will imt be
pushed through. Meanwhile the people have paid $05,842 fur the Hhepley
investigation, Including Mr-.nun to
Mr. Hhepley himself, all fur the pre
tended purpose of amending the In
surance law.
HARD TIMES WITH THK GOVKRN-
MKNT,
The speech from the throne admits
the t'nmnal deficit, and adds that
"exceptional caution" in public ox-
prndlturo hns become necessary. But
lhe speech also says that the sPua;
tii n is better than a short time ago.
It wns worse In October, and the lea
s0n for exceptional caution was then
greater. Electors will recall the election promises of public works and
public exprndlture as samples of exceptional caution on the part of the
ministers. Never w-*h such profuse
extravagance and reckless undertaki
in'.'H mado by any government. . and
its supporters. Ministers and their
supporters on every platform were
lavishly scattering promises of pub
lie prints. The subsidised press wnfl
loaded down with calls for tenders,
nnd the Impressb n produced was
that the government had more money
than It could use.

Celebration  of   Burn's Speech    From   Throne
Anniversary Debate Continued
Thu city band gave it* second concert in the opera house last Monday
evening. The lnrbe audience which
was equal to the capacity of the
theatre, testified tQ the increasing
Popularity nf our band's organization. It wus a musical treat and
the crowd who assembled to listen
was an appreciative one, the general
uttentiveness from the opening until
the conclusion being a striking testimonial to the merits of the entertainment.
lhe opining number, a march by J.
Jubb, was rendered with fine spirit.
The "Old Plantation 80ngs" is ever
an 0ld favorite. The original music
of old Scotland—the bagpipes—was
certainly typical of Burns fatherland
rendered by Mr. A. McCowan, while
Mr. C, McCowan danced the "Highland Fling." The execution and pre-
cion with which the "Cock of the
North," "Bonnie Dundee," nnd "The
Silver Trumpets," were given are
only tokens 0f the very careful instruction received at the hands of
their conductor, Mr. F. E. Corrison,
R.M.8.M.. V0cal se>los were also
rendered by Mrs. W. J. DeBeck, Miss
Lou Leitch, Mr. Fred Reeves, Mr. J.
Burns. Mrs. N. A. Wallinger, who
gave several violio solos, was certainly well appreciated, evidenced by
the repeated calls f()r her return.
Song of the Sawmills and Saws
Dt,es a sawmill furnish energy for
sawing more lumber on the sawmill
night shift than on the day shift ?
The first impulse would be to answer
in thc negative. Scores of old mill
men, some of whom have worked in
Digby county for many years make
reply in nn emphatic yes. N0t tuly
do the mill operators declare that
water will accomplish a greater am
j oiint of work at night than in the
day time, but they cite records of actual performances, giving names of
mills and dates where tests have been
made.
In sawing deals and other standard
lumber from Spruce of average size,
ihe exact varlatlon in performance
between night and day depend slightly upon weather conditions, more being sawed in dark and drizzly weather, than when it is fair, but cn an
average a modern band saw that will
turn out 18,000 feet in ten hours of
daylight can saw 20,000 feet 0r m0re
in ten hours of darkness. Not only
has this assertion been proved many
times in mills that were run by water
power, but it has been demonstrated
thr0ugh elimination from the fact
that mills using steam power never
present so large a variation. The
millmen will declare thut the saws
make a widely different s0und when
dashing through spruce knots at
night than they do by day, so that if
one visit a strange mill, he could distinguish whether it was night or dny
by the s0ngs of the saws. By daylight nothing but classical music
comes from the m0st rectoless of small
■laws. As soon us the restraint of
daylight has passed the reckless saws
forget their dignity and begin to
sftlg and hum ragtime and coon songs
chewing up lumber und manufacturing
deals at a great rate.
MilUiwners and f0remcn of experience who have listened to the debate
for years, agree with the hands, and
some of them add the explanation
•hat the water is heavier by night
than by day, though n0bndy seems
to have tnken pains to weigh the
water at tho two periods for the purpose of comparing results.--Weymont
Gazette.

Records of Deaths
The number ,,! deaths, births and
marriages recorded in South East
Kootenay during the last year     are:
Deaths  231
Births   257

The largo proportion uf deaths was
largely owing to the Fernie fire disaster and the prevalence of typhoid
fever.

Victoria, Jan. 27—The debate on
the address in reply t,> the speech
from the throne was continued this
afternoon by A. E. I'hiUips, Islands,
nnf W. H. Ross, Fernie, for the gov-
iernment, H. C. Brewster, Alberni,
| and John Jardine, Ks-juimalt for the
opposition, and John Mel noes, Grand |
] Forks, for the socialists. Nothing of
importance transpired,
Mr. Phillips warmly defended the
■government's land policy In reference
, to Buchley and Nechaco valleys intimating that the time was not yet
ripe for the introduction of settlers,
who should wait until the country
; was opened up and markets were provided. In reference to the Alaska*
Yukon-Pacific exposition, Mr. McPhil-
. Ups contended that in view of the
heavy financial burdens of the province and the inadequate aid given
i by the federal government at Ottawa,
the provincial goverment was not
. called up,jii to contribute financial as-
jsistnnce, a,th0ugh he had the assurance of the premier that all pro
, vincial officials w()uld co-operate
. heartily with thc Dominion officials
- in securing first class exhibits 0f B.
C. products.
W. R. Ross confined bis remarks to
a review of the Conditions arising
out of thc Fernie fire. He eloquently
expressed the great appreciation 0f
the people of Fernie for the generous
, assistance that was afforded them
: fr0m all over the world at the time
iof thc disaster, ant especially allud
ed to the generous action of the citizens of Cranbrook in hnusins* refu-
, gees.
Mr.      Mclnnes  referred  to  premier
McBride's     statement    at    Rossland
that the     Conservative party differed
from the liberal   party in that     the
former   was    the     friend of working
men, and expressed the hope that at
the     present session the government
would introduce legislation giving ef-
i feet to     this claim.   He particularly
i asked     for    legislation     thnt would
1 make     provision for workingmen disabled in the Course of their employ-
; ment in   mines, cn railways, or    in
lumber camps,     demanding it as    a
matter of justice and not of charity.
Mr. Brewster and Mr. Jardine dealt
mainly with conditions In their    re-
1 speetive constituencies,  vote ng '   the^
chronic  complaint of  the opposition
: that the lands of the province   were
! being aliemted to speculators to th*
| disadvantage of bona fide settlers nnd
that the moneys expended 0n    public
works were improperly and  extrnva-
! gantly expended.
i    John Oliver, Delta, moved the   ad
! journment of the debate.
Hon. R. G. Tatlow, provincial trea-
! surer, introduced a bill to amend the
' horticultural board act which was
; read a first time. The main provisions of the bill are as follows: There
: is hereby created a provincial board
■ of horticulture, to c,,nslst of three
; ex-officio members, namely, the minister of agriculture, the deputy min
| ister of agriculture (who shall act as
{secretary of the board, the chief inspector of 'ruit pests (who shall act
I for the pr„vince nt large,) und four
' members who chill be appointed by
the lieutenant governor in council,
one frum each ol the horticultaral
districts, which arc hereby created to
wit:
1 The first district shall comprise
the provincial etectnral districts and
portions of provincial electoral dis
tricts embraced In Vancouver Island
and the adjacent islands.

VICTORY
Enthusiastic   Convention  ot   Provincial
Conservatives
Victoria, Jan. 2."- About 230 delegates were present at the Convention
of the Provincial <\ nwrvative association here. Ihe feature of the set
alon yesterday was an address by
Premier McBride.
Mr. McBride, who Was greeted with
acclamations, refernd to the strength
of the party in the province as re
vealed by thi recc it signal victories
in the Dominien elections. This convention had been postponed on account of that contest fr0m November
last. N0w the delegates Could make
up for lost time.
Mr. William McKay, Vancouver, secretary, read the report of the exec-
ecutive. The value of the association
had been demonstrated by its work
last autumn. N-.n-imoand C0tnox-
Atlin were the < nly c. nstltuencie.^
were weak and so those had fallen to
the enemy. The report recommended
the formation of associations in these
ridings in the near future.
At night a smoker was held. The
addresses were Interspersed with a
musical programf On the platf()im
were Premier McBride, Hon. W. J.
Bowser, the attorney general, and
0. D. Wood worth, president of the association.
Premier McBride, in opening, ac .-
nowledged their enthusiastic reception, He complimented them on the
excellent choice lhoy had made in
their new officers and paid a tribute
to president-elect Wood Worth. Cied.t
was due in a large measure to the
provincial conservative association
for winning five out of the seven seat
in the province in the Dominion elections. The party had no seat before.
Whether H0n. Mr. Templeman would
be opposed or not in ComoX-Atlin he
could not say, for it would be left te>
the c„nservatives of tl.e district to
decide. Hon. Mr. Bowser was ac
corded a rousing reception, He remarked that in tlu Dominion campaign he had gone cast with Mr. R.
L. Borden thir eonservati \ e tender
and had laid some of the grievances
of the west before.' the people of the
east. Though the general result was
disappointing, the public conscience
was arotiBtd. "If y,,u had traveled
with Mr. Bord n as I have," said
Hon. Mr. Bowser, "and heard th-
hone.it ring of hiH voice, y0u Would
cnnclude that he Wns not a politician
but a statesman." ln regatd to Com-
ox-Atlin he believed that if the conservatives could get the right man
for a Winter campaign, they would
win. Referring to some assertions of
the liberal party, Hon. Mr. B0WMr
said that judging fiom the recent results on election d -y and the returns
from Kootenay nnd Yale-Cariboo,
that party would be practically
swept out of existence in the next
provincial elections.
Mr. Woodw0rth wus proud of thl-t
gathering of stalwart c< nservutivea.
Their enthusiasm was indicative of
the enthusiasm ohtain-.d in every
hamlet, village and community iu
the province. Tne lead of British
Columbia and Manitoba was b,,und
to be followed Iiy the whole west,
which was destined to become conservative nnd progressive. By the next
general election this province would
have 14 or 15 members instead of 7,
and w„uld thus huve a representation
equal t0 NoVa Scotia and the other
older provinces.
Mr. Mclhillip.-, M.IMV, lor Man Is,
also delivered a st'rring address and
the gathering adj timed with the customary cheers.

FOOD SUPPLY.
Adequate and proper food supply :
In growing bacteria wo must give
much attention t0 their fond, tor all
our precautions would be useless     if
the food     was not lit for them. Beef
broth will satisfy the greater number
of bacterial species, although in some
cases    the    addition of other ingredients is necessary.   It sometimes happens that  we cannot find the proper
toed     for     a bacterial species; it is
then often     successful to give     them
an extract     of the products in which
they lived in niture.   Any food however, which does not contain the elements hydrogen, oxygen und nitrogen
is unfit for bacterial growth.
Thc reaction of the food we give
them also deserves 0ur attention.
The same fnod made acid or alkaline,
will show a remarkable difference in
the bacterial species in preference to
others. This is quite evident in the
making  of  vinegar.   Put some

of bacteria begin to grow, among

Our third condition was moisture,
and undoubtedly this is n very important one frum a practical standpoint. The farmer who has to store
his crops and hay knows moisture to
be his worst enemy. Without moisture the bacteria are unable to grow,
und this fact is the foundation of a
great many prnctieal processes. To
preserve grass it is made, into hay,
and as hay it keeps f0r an unlimited
time. The farmer who is unlucky enough to he obliged to store damp
huy sprinkles it with salt, for salt
takes up moisture, anil the bacteria

niould in a few days.
Anybody who wishes to try an experiment himself may take two pieces
of bread and soak one of them in
water. In a few days the wet piece
is covered with mould, while the dry
piece is unchanged, though the chance
of infection for both was the same.
Mf«t is dried for preserving purposes and the same principle holds true
for moat extracts, condensed milk,
evaporated fruits und vegetables,
milk Powder, dried tlsh, etc. Thus
many food products are preserved in

Interesting to Know
While it is much to be regretted, it
is ii fuct tbat must be uckuowtedged,
thut there ure "little Engluoders,"
und nlso "little Canadians." By little
Canadians is meant those who have
nu conttdence in the lutttre und very
meagre information as tu the great
nsources of. Canada.
No man can, be a "little t'uuadian"
unless he be grossly ign ,runt of tbe
country of which he cluims to be a
citi/.en. Ignurance is a sinister con*
dition, and failure an I may be dlsas
ter are the inevitable consequences of
its induence.
How many people realise the great-
ness of the country uf which they
form a Part? lt may not be amiss
to give a lew particulars uf this
great Dominion.
FACTS ABOUT CANADA
Canada    is larger thon the United
States, by about 178,inw smart miles
and has a Population of only     one-
twelfth the latter country.
Canada Is as large us thirty united
kingdoms of Greut Britain, and equal
In else to eighteen Germany's.
Canada, is almost the sue of Europe and twice the size of British India; eighteen times the size of France
twenty times the size of Spain ' and
twenty-three times the size of Italy.
Canada Ib one third the arra ot the
British empire, and h tlf of this area
is as yet not surveyed Into provinces.
Only one quarter of thin vast area
is occupied and less than one-eighth
is under cultivation.
Canada contains approximately 3,-
729,66S square miles more than one-
third ol this territory unexplored.
The unsurveyed districts of Mackenzie,, Ungava, and Franklin are larger
than China.
The distance Irom Hulifax to Vancouver is greater than from London,
England, to Halifax.
Canada extends over 48 degrees of
latitude -a distance equal to thut
fr0m Rome to the North Pole.
These are a few rudlmentury points
about Canada, well 1 n iwo to the average school boy, but nut known to
those who decry the country, and
faintly realised by the party in opposition to the government.

majority of three In the house, with
(the spiuker in the chair. Even this
majority was largely obtained hy
: the secret circulation among Honij.n
i Catholics of the "Duty ol the H,,ur'
i pamphlet, with tbo false Hnd mali
] clous statement that it was conserv
} ative literature. The opposite n lea
Ider predicted that the session would
j not be l0ng unless ministers persist
fed in their old habit 0f withholding
; their principle measures. Then Mr.
| llorden told the premier what hit
.duty was in the matter 0| iuves.1;a
: tion. Ihe Cassels* inquiry should
; have been extended into every spend
i ing department, and the c0mmis.-lon
! er should h,ive been allowed to invest
, igate contributions of contractors t0
i campaign funds as well as payment!
■ to civil servants.   Mr.      llorden  wel
| corned  the goveinimnt's sudden  con
; version to ect.njmy, but held thnt it
[should have begun before the election
] campaign and prevented the wholesale
bribery of constituencies, by promises
of prnfuse public expmdtture.
SIR WILFRID COMPLAINS
The  premier's     speech  wns largely
devoted to the unhappy defeat of his
.candidates in     Manitoba and Brinish
I Columbia.   He  complain d   that    the
t Pacific   problem hud  been stamped* d
! 0n the Oriental immigration question
, and Mr.  Borden for encouraging this
1 campaign.   Later in  the debate    Mr.
j Lemieux made a U ng lament over tht
i attitude of British Columbia.
THK WKST HEARD FROM.
But     it     was found that th? nw
members     from     that province wen
well able to defend  themselves,    ami
their constituents.     Mr. Cowan,    Mr.
Barnard and Mr.  Burrell replied     tt.
the prime minister, showing thut Hir
Wilfrid and his colleagues were whol
ly to lilame for the Orltntal Immigration situation.   It is    not „ften that
the house hears better speaking  than
I that of the three new members, who
showed     up the stupid deception and
inconsistent     dealings t)f the govern
ment  with  immigration  matters and
j pointed out that tha min'stry     wMs
, condemned in     British Columbia for
i general maludmin strntlon as well as
1 for its bad Policy.
A FEW TRADES.
Mr. F0ster reviewed some of Sii
Wilfrid's political c, ntracts, ending
! with one just c, n-luded whereby Mr.
; Sloan resigns bis seat for Comox to
make a place I0r the legated minister, Mr. Templemm. Similar trades
; were that. which gave a senatorship
(to Mr. Derbyshire, in exchange for a
seat for Mr. Graham, and the one
! whereby Hon. Mr. Sc0tt resigned his
| portfolio, his son receiving a $900*
1 office.
THK OASSELS' REPORT
; Judge Cassels has reported from
I the marine department inquiry. Hi-
; report is made to the minister of
marine, and In the beginning clearly
; shows that the commissioner did not
! undertake to investigate thc conduct
j of the minister or his colleagues and
; political friends. The inquiry was
| limited by the sins of lesser marine
iofficials. The former deputy minister
; Coli Gourdeau, agents of tbe depart
meat at Quebec and St. John, the
] chief commissioner ()f lights, com
inlander Spain, Inspectors 0 Farrell
.and  Schmidt,  and  Bome thirty ,,ther
■ officials nnd employees are v., ndemn
' ed or   rensured,  for  various nTenses
or improper proceedings.
The commissioner always lindsthit
.the patronage system has led to ex
(•weave prices mid that fltm.dOfl n
year may he saved in the depart
ment hy its abolition.
That the government paid $4,600
each for 40 diapht nes, which would
have afforded the ccn'ractor 100 pei
cent, profit if sold f0r *H7r> each,
That the charter f,,r the King Ed
ward steamship at *\2i> per day was
improperly changed to $180 per day,
whereby tl-e contractor got lii.fiim to
which he had no right.
That some R0 mm. who were ti >t
, needed, were employed at the Halifax dockyards during the late elec-
| tion.
That the patronage system in Hall-
1 fax was intcaaiHrt    bjr ti.» ihamofu)
Interference ot tbe late members ior
the riding.
That the Merwin und Brooks con
tracts were absolutely without ex«
cuse,
That the Ales ol the department
were mutilated after the enquiry De-
Ban,
ihut papers were destroyed which
were  valuable evidence.
Thai agent  Gregory exacted ,*> per
cent, commission on government con
tracts under his jurisdiction.
That Inspector Schmidt took hrih
es. knowing they were bribes.
Thai the deputy minister h.,d nit
.erwuie entered dee ol mny for his
own use, on the representntlon that
it was Ior public service
That the deputy ministers must
have Known of the transactions at
Quebec, St. .lohn and elsewhere and
ihat the    chief engineer and ins at'
sistallt w,(iiltl have heen limie cnie-
,lll   ftS   to   the   prices   paid   lot   diaphoU
i's ii they bad been buying loi them
selves.
WKRK THK  COMMISSION FAILS.
Tho Commissioner docs not cany
nis conclusions so far as to suppose
thai  Mr. Brodeur ought also tn have
nown anything ol tho excessive
.-.rices, and     graft and extravagun e
hat prevailed in his department, or
hat ministers would haw been m ,te
•Igllant   il they had been buying for
themselves.
Where the sw0m evidence of Gour-
deaii. Fraser and Gregory slates that
,he transactions condemned wore
..n,,wn to the former minister, Mr.
Prefontalne, the commission sr rejects
the evidence because the minister is
not here to speak for himself.
The commissioner implicitly ac
-epts Mr. Brodeur's assurance that
patronage had been abolished in hi*
department. He strongly urges thai
;ho other ministers shall follow his
example,
The commissioner was employed
.,nd instructed by Mr. Brodeur and
did not inquire into that man's Kur
opean picnic expenses, Nor the Falconer contract made by Mr. Brodour
uimself, nor Into any other matter iu
which the minister ofltnded,
NUMBERS H4 AND 85.
Valentine Rata, a government sup
,)orter in the last parliament whj
never took any part in discussion or
egislatioii except to vote with his
i>arty, h ,d been called to the senate,
ipparently for the purpose of nsslst
.ng that body. It is stated that bis
appointment was an arrangement
mute before the election, by virtue of
which Mr. Ratz st0od out ol the way
of another candidate. He is numbei'
i4 in the list of ex-members placed
ui ollice by the Laurier government,
A FORTUNATE VETERAN.
Number 85 is Iir. Potor Maedonald,
formerly member for Huron and deputy speaker, Though Dr. Macd, nald
lives nt Wingham, he Ins been made
Postmaster ,,f London city, 75 miles
iway, to the great lndlgnatl0n of the.
London  folk   who  say  no  necessity for
'he Import a tii n. Dr. Maedonald is
.'4 years old. In the last liseal year
iver tiO officials were superannuated,
ind all but six ,,f them were younger
than the new postmaster tf London
is at the time of his appointment. Of
these younger men, thirty-eight wero
retired on the ground of "old age."
NO HURRY NOW.
Last session the government rushed
through a bill authorising the trans
fer of parliament groiin Is in th? front
of Major Hill Park t,, ihe Grand
Trunk Railway Company for a hotel.
The premier pleaded that the matter
,vas urgent, but on Thursday his at-
attention was called to the fact that
die company had done nothin; but
build an ugly fence around their Concession, spoiling the view and shutting people out of the grounds. Sir
Wilfrid nu longer thinks the matter
urgent, now that the company has
got what it wanted from the government, and says he does not I now
when anything more will be dune
The premier i.s n the habit of do
voiitly praying heaven that it may
not he too la'e to give concessions
to favorite corporations, but his hurry and devotion are apt to stop short
nt that, point.
