Two weeks ago the ministor of minim1 niiuii1 two announcements to prove
that liis department retained nidi
ments ol conscience notwithstanding
tin- declaration of tbo royal commission to the contrary. Mr. Brodour Informed tho country, which had been
startled with the fresh revelations
irom Quebec thut mil officials who
look commissions! nnd all contract
ora who paid them, would be prosecuted. He also was quoted n-s saying
that the patronage list would be abolished. This pledge of virtue was
distributed by government organs
with high editorial praise.
NO CHANGE.
But nothing has happened. No official or contractor has been ajrrested
and no one seems to bo alarmed. The
very contractors who were to he produced are still supplying goods nt
highly profitable monopoly prices to
other departments, and even to the
department of marine. It may be
thai sometime iu the future a few
subordinates, who hnve no party
pull, will be punished but no peril
awaits . the principal officials who
have been appointed by this government n-nd ure implicated. As for tlie
largo contractors concerned, most of
them ure important, members of the
government party. They will not only
escape prosecution, but are almost
sure to retain patronage and continue their contributions to the campaign fund. They are fresh from labor and contributions in the party
interest in the recent tight. Mr. Brodeur has not Bpurned their campaign
offerings.
THK PATRONAGE UST.
It is true that Mr, Brodeur has
written a letter to his deputy, directing him to instruct tbe agents "to
disregard the patronage list." But
rhis published document gave no instructions to purchase supplies in the
npen market to the best advantage,
and no hint as to thc course to be
pursued. Evidently then private instructions have been sent out. Though
this letter wus written nearly three,
weeks ago, no general culls for tenders have appeared since, and so far
as can be learned no purchases have
been, made from dealers who are not
supporters of the government. In
short, if the old patronage list has
been, cancelled, it has been replaced
by a new one. When the accounts ure
f,een it will be found that the purchases are made from the same favored
persons. There is now a purchasing
agent at Ottawa for the department.
He has been at work since last spring
and was appointed on account of the
loyal commission exposures, but has
gone on buying from the dealers on
the patronage list just the same us
the party did before it employed him.
So far as the department has gone,
since it was convicted of lnck of conscience, it has continued to justify
the verdict, adding the additional offence of fuiae pretence und hypocrisy.
AN  EXAMPLE OK DUPLICITY
Two incidents in the Quebec enquiry
■ire worthy ot record. One occurred in
connection with n-gent Gregory's evidence, Mr. Gregory testitied that he
had frequently reported to Ottawa
thut the patronage system increased
the price of supplies. He swore thut
he hus nevertheless, been compelled
by orders trom Ottawa to continue
it. To offset this, counsel for the
government showed the ngent a letter
tn him from the deputy minister, objecting to prices paid and tind ing
fault with the general sca-le of extra-
vngnnce prevailing at Quebec. Mr.
Gregory admitted receiving this letter, but swore that he iiad received
nt tbe same time instructions by telephone from his superior at. Ottawa
to pay nn attention to the official
censure, but to go ou satisfying
friends of tbe government who had
goods' to sell. The department bad
explained to Mr. Gregory by telephone that the letter was written
to show, but not to be obeyed.
PUBUO AND PRIVATE INSTRUCTIONS.
This startling statement was confirmed by Senator Ohoqliette, former
judge, and lately chief government
nrganiser of the Quebec district. The
senator produced a letter from Ottawa to Mr,- Gregory, which gave the
same private instructions in favor of
extravagance as Gregory had received
uy telephone. This letter was handed
by senator ChoQUette to -fudge ('assets, who read it, but did not plaee it
on record as it contained other private matter. With this evidence of
charming duplicity the public ciwi understand the value of official correspondence touching the matter of patronage. No one knows how-.many of
the published official letters advising
economy are contradicted by telephone messages and private notes
from the same writers authorising extravagance.
GHAFT AND    CAMPAIGN  CONTRIBUTIONS
Another episode in the Quebec inquiry occurred at the residence of
Mr. E. Audibert, bookkeeper of Mr.
Drolet, a contractor, who has received several hundreds of thousands
from the government. It was shown
that the Drolet firm had given commissions or presents to twenty-eight
officers nnd employees of the murine
department at Quebec, Tiie commission went quite fully into this mat-
ter, Hut it wus also generally under-

greut increase in Germans was likely
to affect her and to adopt measures
necessary for her own defence. The
navy, under present conditions, wus
fettered in home waters nnd without
military forces sufficient to render an
invasion hopeless. Great Britain's
military weakness would, in all probability, be the cause of the loss of
her naval supremacy. Lord Roberts

of the government to make provision

that tbe most formidable foreign nation will hesitate before making

Four years ago Nelson protested.
The chairman of the railway commission Killam heard the kick. He also listened to Vancouver, which city
insisted that it had the right to supply the Kootenay, 400 mites inside
the interior, because it was a coast
port. To him also appealed, on the
same question, Winnipeg, also claiming the exclusive right to supply the
Kootenay, making the plea upon tbe
ground that all goods originating in
thc eust hud to pass through Winnipeg to get to Nelson.
The palliative applied at the time
liy the railway commission was not
the lowering of the Vancouver rate
into Nelson, but the ruisiag of the
Winnipeg rate. Hence Nelson was infinitely worse ofl than before the application, and neither Winnipeg nor
Vancouver was benefitted, At * thc
same time chairman Killam, probably recognising the injustice of the
whole matter, declared that the only
equitable basis was the charging of
all goods upon a mileage basis rate
from the point of origin, doing away
with arbitrary rates from distributing centres created by the railroad

were injured, but none seriously, in a
wreck at 4 o'clock this morning between the Great Northern coast flyer
and a freight nt Clontnrf, six miles

Following the collision a tire started which destroyed three day coaches,
one mail, one express and two baggage cars, thc latter containing about
500 pieces of baggage, and the caboose and four freight cars, all loaded with lumber.
The freight train had run pnst the
switch and was backing up on the
main line, when the express, two
hours late, crashed into the caboose.
A heavy fog prevented the engineer
from seeing the danger signal, Engineer Denny of St. Paul and his tire-

Hon. Wulter Scott, premier of Saskatchewan, has been explaining the
political BituatiOD in British Colum
bin. In an interview in the Winnipeg
Free Press Mr. Scott says: "R. L.
Borden is entitled to a full share of
credit for the election verdict of Brit
ish Columbia). Mr. Borden is also entirely welcome to all the satisfaction
which he can extract from it. The ver
diet condemns a policy on the Japan
esc immigration question which was
admittedly dictated by the interests
of the British empire, and which was
followed at the express desire, if not
the direction, of the imperial authorities. The verdict in addition condemns Laurier for acting upon there
commendations of the provincial pre
mler's conference fn settling the provincial subsidies question."
According to Mr. Scott, the sole election issues in British Columbia
were the "better terms" and oriental
exclusion questions, The conservatives
Stralghtly condemned the Ottawa
government for not riding roughshod
over the subsidies arrangement agreed
to by the interprovincinl conference
of RlOb, nnd for being guided in thc
Japanese immigration problem by
imperial interests. They were able to
quote stjt|tements made by Mr. Borden when he visited the Pacific pro
vince In PJI17 in proof that he ap
proved the British Columbia demands
on both questions.
Now that the elections are over it
is decidedly refreshing to read the
frank avowal of a liberal like Mr.
Scott. During the campaign of course
it was most vehemently denied that
there was any difference on the Asiatic exclusion question in the stand tuken by both parties. The liberal can
dihate plcu-ded here in Nelson that, he
was just us sound on the exclusion as
was the conservative candidate, tint
Mr. Scott makes clear what we have
known for a long time that the liberal government had sacritlecd the best
interests of British Columbia because
it did not wish to offend Japan and
because the imperial government desired thiiit the Japanese should not
be kept out of this province.
Mr. Borden is accused by Mv. Scott
of "inciting British Columbia into a
temper of hostility against, imperial
connection," but Mr, Borden found
tbe hostility here when he came' on
his tour, antl while British Columbia
is perfectly sound on imperial questions tbe electors of Victoria, Vancouver, New Westminster, Yo-le-Cnrl-
boo and Kootenay have made it reasonably clear that tlie price of Imperial connection must not be the Hooding of B. C, with Asiatics. Strangely
enough while sections of the liberal
party, and a portion of the liberal
press, west of the great lakes, have
entirely failed to grasp the situation
out here n.nd the real sentiment of
the people, the leading British news
pupers have for the most part fully
admitted the right of this province
to keep the Canadian west a white
man's country. In Kootenuy it was
urged a little while ago thut "n '
white B. C. wus merety an election
cry, but only those who did not want
to know the real feeling of the province in the matter could by any possibility have taken this view.
Hon. Mr. Scott in his published interview attempts to explain uway the
demand for better terms just ubout
us clearly us he druilt with the exclusion question nnd it is some comfort
to know that wben both the questions
referred to come up in debate in thc
commons, five out of the seven B. C.
rcpresentntives will be able to voice
the province's real sentiments
Mr. Scott's reference to Mr. Borden's wanr. of loyalty and to the ant,--
imperial sentiment in B. C. is uncalled for. British Columbians have demonstrated their loyalty to British
Columbia and their refusal to be sacrificed to alleged Imperial interests
and in doing so have followed, as
every one knows, in the footsteps of
the other overseus dominions where
ever the Asiatic question has come to
tbe front.
So far as Mr. Borden is concerned
he has simply understood > the real
sentiment here, sympathised with it
and announced that, it bud, and that
it would have, the support of himself
and of the conservative party. Nelson News,

event of   such a withdrawal   for   Sir

j How sluill wo oottWTTfl our foreatH?
I How ahall we prevent thfl dent ruction
which baa been the history of timber
iin too many portions of ('anadn? ?
What practical mema. shall wv adopt
canHitttont with commercial bMWBl
I ties to tha end that va may continue
to tho enjoyment t>( nn industry
I which ranks almost Bnrt In Import
lance to British Oolumbla?
These are tbe Questions which pro
sent themselves In timber affairs
When ont speaks tor the conserve
tion ol tlmbei In .1 couutrj thut u.
especially favored bj luxuriant forest
growth, he is liable to be roaarded u«
.ui alarmist It u .1 remarkable thlnn
thafl those sections t-i the continent
which have boasted ol the tlnest com
msrclal forests have witnessed theli
most besdlsfa destruction This in
doubtless because nature has been
Hindi) without the requirement ol
a»> diligence on the part of lis In
habitants \ wealth provided in
.-uch abundance that its familial
vastnese is not appreciated until the
people awaken to the sorrowful truth
that the end has come
The Question of preventing any
such repetition ol history iu British
Oolumbla should be .separated from
sentiment Tho substantial reasons
ot public welfare are enough to com
mand ths must careful attention to
wa-rdH the solution ol the various pro
blems involved Nw means of pre
venting destruction must be adopted
with s view ol placing no barriers on
piop.- enterprise and profitable com
merce In the product ol foresl
1; row tli.
The remedies toward conservation
will naturally apply to privately
owned timWbrland more than to that
winch is in possession of the government. The latter lands are in no immediate danger except where they
may be affected by adjoining that
which is privately owned. Uut with
reference to lands that have been alienated, it is proposed to point out
where the province stands to lose to
an irremediable extent unless it is
safeguarded hy legislation to encourage proper conservation of timber.
Briefly,  there  are  three    particullar
enemies to our forests:
L,   Destruction by fire.
2. The ruthlessness of the uxe.
3. The waste at the mill.
The first oi these evils is'by far the
greatest. Who has not traversed the
province in the forest areas without
being impressed with the anuftint of
timherland which has already fallen
a prey to the disregard of those who
in many cases have wantonly stalled
terrific conflagrations, To do this
was looked upon as no great offence
a few years ago. In some communities, ut this day, it may be only regarded with .some slight disapproval.
The law provides certain penalties it
is true, yet so broad is the act, and
so difficult may it be to find proof,
that, punishment seldom overtakes an
offender.
The interest of the people as a
whole should be enlisted to cope with
the situation. This is more effective
than the majesty of law. Beside this,
there should be an efficient corps of
fire wardens with authority to employ as many specials as are needful
to pat out or check tires in the early
stages. Then there are statutory regulations which should suggest themselves in addition to those which are
already in force.
The government has made a very
creditable beginning by employing tire-
wardens, but while It is a fair start
and while these Wardens have done
splendid work, we want more of
them. There may be also instituted
better methods of having tires reported.
lt has been rumored that it Is the
intention of the government to have
the "bush-lire act" amended at the
forthcoming session of the legislature. Those who are interested confidently expect Lhat no ill-considered
or unworkable plan will be adopted,
it would he better to come slightly
short of full requirement than make
the act unpopular by undue hardships
So far as the coast is concerned,
our loss has been the least in many
years. This i.s due in great measure
to the wardens already employed and
ample proof that if proper precall
tions are taken during the dry weather antl immediate attention is given to extinguish fins when first
started, that our coast tires inn he
made practically immune rrom serious  losses.
The damage from forest tires In the
interior for 1908 110$ been somewhat
more than ordinary. The Inei that
the timber so situated is exposed to
the risk ni a drier climate, and be
cause of the country boing Intorscctod
with many railroads, which seem
sooner or later to burn much of the
timbiT through which they pass calls
for Bpccla-I vigilance, In the matter
of the "bush fires act" it. might be
expedient, on tlie advice ol those who
are familiar with their peculiar con
ditlons iu the interior, to have special provision to apply to that parti
cular part of fhe country.
Those who have seen logging opera
lions on our coast of British Columbia can al lest to fhe waste of the
axe In flic eager desire to got In/go
percentages ol clear logs in lhe boom
an iiumen.se amount of timber is destroyed in fhe woods. This is due to
commercial incentive; if the operator
he a logger, he Krets liiol'e money ror
his logs, Indeed, if he does not keep
down fhe proportion of No. x tfrnilc,
he is liable noi to lie able in sell at
all. Moreover, logs which arc very
rough are culled us worthless. If llie
operator 1. 1 untiiui; a mill, liis
.■uiiu in the matter of wnsle are   even
greater in ' 0  cu-fics, for the temp
liiiion of hIiiii prices and ready market  for uppei  grades or lumber    arc
ind I very alluring.
II is noi mi uncommon thing to see
20 or Iin UlollHiind feet to the acre of
very good limber left pmctleally tin
stroyod in lhe woods, waiting for the
spark which will leave the ground on
which     it      d n blackened wnste.
j Remember this destruction is to timber which would in a few yeara com
mand the highetit price on the market. It may be asked Ih it nectMwary
that such waste should occur? Any
practical logger will say no. Then
why do the owners ot timherland cut
with nuch little regard io economy?
The answer may be found in the
fact that it enstt: something more to
save the timber not wanted for immediate purposes, and because the
owner of the landa Hnds tii:* title too
limited to consider coming -back
again; itnd taking the beat nnd most
accessible, abandons the retrt to destruction
Thia la a condition of affairs which
hus only very recently reached an
acute stage, nnd to internal) the evil
it baa bean made apparent that if
timber now bald privately from thr*
government is to lie cut within the
time limit ol Its title, thut the mar
ket will be BO crowded that clear
lumbar only Will ba In demand, to
thc nun ol much vuluahie timber
Which  will   he  left   u, lhi   woods
I'ublic attention should he dliecled
to the above daOgei which involves
principally (but of ovoi taxing the
holdora ol timherland .1 course which
inn. worked .uch disastrous results to
tiie tlmbei  in the eastern nnfft of the
Continent       lu   the   pant       there       has
been misconception iu the minds of
tbo public, u not on tin part of tho
[overnmont itsolf, as tn the position
<>f the holdors of timber licenses with
respect  to the public Interests in tho
I Conomjf      With      which   these  license
holdings  should   be opcruteil     It    hud
been  generally  regarded  that  thc am  ,
oiint ot direct revenue produced   from
timber     was   the only mutter to he I
considered,     whereas     to those who
have     given     thc   problem   mature
thought,  tin   royally  and rentals received are    merely    incidental   to the
public \ve;,l.   The proper conversation
oi    tbe industry, its continued pros
perity,   is of more importance to the
province than auy amount  of immed
Into  revenue  which might   be derived I
II this  revenue were obtained at    the '
.sacrifice   of a timber which will take1
hundreds of years to replace., It    Is I
patent    that     a    steady  rental  from
timber lands for years to come is the
soundest  policy  from a  public  stand- i
[loint,     and  that  this can only     he
brought about by     introducing   such
stability in our limber laws as shall j
induce the holders to   maintain   their j
licenses and  cut with such care     as
will enable   them to go over     their
lands again and     again until the uttermost of its value shall have been
removed.
The revenues of the province ure at
this day supplied from licensed    and
leased lands to the amount of   about I
$1,850,000 from license fees on about!
10,500 square miles; $8:1,000 fiom ren- I
tals on 792,000 acres of leased timber
lands and about $300,000 trom royal- I
ties or a total of about $1,173,000 as
compared   with  about .$;i,286,000     of I
total revenue from all sources. These
will be in the vicinity of thc returns
for this year.   The figures show thut I
the holders of timber land arc paying
more  than   half the  total  provincial I
revenue.
It is desirable to huve understood [
the profit of thc country iu observing
economy with our timber. The more j
timber we save from destruction, the
more we have to n^ld to the wealth
of thc people of the province. Sup-
pose, for instance, that each thou- i
sand feet of lumber means a distribu-
tion in the province of $20. {It will (
be observed that this value refers to
thc manufactured product.) One billion feet of that timber saved means
$20,000,000 for Uritish Columbia. Yet
the statement is within the murk,
that a loss of 25 or 30 times that
amount is at stake, or about $2000
for every man, woman and child of
our population. Timber which will
easily run into this estimate and value will surely in greater part be destroyed if undue haste is made in
cutting.
in considering the third general
cause of wnste, viz, that which occurs at the mill, it must he remembered that the operators of these
plants are conducting their business
along the most profitable lines and
In such a manner as to ensure their
success. If, therefore, there is no incidental waste, they are not necessarily blaineahle. Modern competition forces this condition, lt is nevertheless a fact that the amount of
good material which linds its way to
the bonfires seems to those accustomed to more economic methods, as a
ruthless waste.

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 1908?
Continued from page 1.
stood thut Mr. Drolet had made still
larger payments in another direction
which w*ns ntill mule useful in procuring and retaining government patronage. Counsel for one of the officers questioned bookkeeper Audibert
on Mi is matter, asking whether the
liini had not mu,de "large campaign
contributions."
THIS ENQUIRY WJKK-BD.
Here the enquiry wits abruptly
headed off. objection was raised at
once. Tt did not come from Mr. Drolet or his representative. It eame
from Mr, Perron, who was there as
counsel for the government itself, and
who in place of assisting the enquiry
at tbe very point where it would be
most effective, interposed his authority to choke it off. Mr. Perron's objection was sustained and the Inquiry
went no farther in that direction. It
is well to remember that the late Mr.
Prefontatne was minister of marine
when .some of these subscriptions
were made, and that Mr. Perron was
liis Jaw partner at the time. Probably
Mr.'Perron knew how much bad been
contributed,
THIS SHOULD UK TOLD.
What could lie more peitinent in un
investigation of marine department
graft than the question whether the
favored contractors were paying in
campaign subscriptions for their special profits? Nu question In the whole
enquiry at Quebec was more interesting fo the public than this one, put
to the reprosentatlve of the firm
which had received the greatest favors from the government, and whose
alleged excessive charges was nne el-
oment In the cxtmvngnnco over expenditure nf tlie government,   ll n firm
of  thc  people  has  corrupted   lonil   iif
ficials of the government by commissions of $25 to $2.uou each, tlmt is a
matter requiring Investigation. But
if this and other linns had ii corrupt
arrangement with tbe government Itself, and paid into the campaign fund
$10,000 or $25,000 of $50,000, this is
for each election, a still more vital
mo-tter. This is so not only because
tbe amount is larger, but because the
corrupt transaction is with the leaders of the party itself, and not with
comparatively Insignificant officials.
There is evidence or guilt in tho eagerness with which a government coun
sel  professing to prosecute jiii enquiry
throws liimBolf Into the breach tn
head off tins necessary and essential
investigation into the conduct, of his
own leaders and employers.
A NARROW I3SOAPB,
Another liberal provincial admlnis
trutlon Is in ureal danger', The Hu*/.
Hard government ol Prince Kdward
Island should have gone to tlio Coll ll
try early tins yenr. but postponed thc
election till after the Dominion con
test "lily llie success of the Ullirlcr
government saved its provincial al
lies, and even with this advantage
the success is doubtful, Returns show
in 11bcinis tii t*i consorvatlvob with
one minister defeated, a gnat, change
from tho last bouse with 21 liberals
a.nd it conservatives, With the conser
vutives in control of provincial administrations of Ontario, Manitoba,
British Columbia and New Brunswick.
giving greatly improved administration compared with thc machine governments which have been turned out,
it is a pity that the people of prince
Kdward Island hud not been allowed
to settle this question without federal interference. In that province voting is open, and no federal employee
or elector under federal Influence can
give an independent vote. Hence, two
seats in Charlottt.town, where there
is a large railway vote, were allowed
to go to the government without opposition.
THK SESSION  DELAYED.
Three years ago It was decided that
parliament should meet thereafter in
October for the beginning of November. To make this possible the fiscal
year was closed in November instead
of June. In 1906 parliament met in
November, 22. In 1907 it was not
called until the end of November.
Now we ure informed that the next
session will begin about the 20th of
January. So the country is back to
where it was before the fiscal year
was changed. It is no excuse that an
election has been held. Tbe election
might have taken place a month or
two earlier, or ufter the next suasion.
In any ense it is not necessary to
postpone the meeting of parliament
three months after an election. The
last, time tbe late conservative govei nment summoned parliament for

in 1891. The election was held in
.March and the bouse met in April.

By indicating when oven is ready for

is going on in the oven. By saving

certainty for chance

OIK FRUITGROWING
Hore is a tribute to our British
Columbln fruil growers coming from
the Canadian Horticulturist, the ollieinl organ of the fruit growing indue
try in Canada, The comments are
found in the editorial columns uf that
paper.
"The comparatively new fruit
growing province ol British Columbia
can teach eastern grower's pointers on
growing nud Belling fruit This fact
is recognised not only hy enthusiasts
in that province, but also by eastern
growers who have visited British Columbia. Highest honors have been
taken by British Columbln fruit
wherever it bus been shown in coin-
petition. The growers have adopted
at the outset modern practices in
growing and modern methods in marketing. They have taken advantage
of all the experiences of California
and other western states nnd of the
older fruit growing provinces n-nd are
applying them to local conditions
ann improving upon them. It might
be said almost that they have started at the top ot the ladder. Wltb
this advantage combined with the
fact that nature has richly endowed
the province with soil and climate
that scarcely can be duplicated elsewhere' in the world, the growers of
British Columbia are fortunate.
"It would be folly to imagine that
mistakes have not been made and
will not be made. Many persons hfl-ve
gone Into tbe business without any
knowledge of the principles and the
practice of fruit culture. In attempting to upply up-to-date methods
without a thorough knowledge of tbe
simpler and Just as necessary mlftor
pructices, some have been and more
are apt to be disappointed. There is
opportunity for educational work on
the part of the older growers and of
the government. Many persons
also have bought land, through misrepresentation on the part of fraudulent land companies, many of them
are not in this class, that is little or
no value for anything. In spite of
these things, British Columbia is becoming famous for her fruits. Eastern
growers will have to keep moving to
ludd her own."
('anadian Farmer.
In this issue the process of weathering due to the various agencies
such as water, frost, chemica.1 action,
plants, earth worms and microbes
will be treated.
Let us tali' Tor example, a fresh
surface of bare rock and suppose that
the first thing that happens to it is
that it gets wet with rain. Water will
soak into the hardest and closest-
grained rock, ami this wetting leads
to a number of changes, lt dissolves
out nny of the solttbli units met with
nnd even some materials usually considered insoluble, thus helping to
loosen tho mineral particles. Whin the
rain falls iu sufficient quantities, it
collects into streams, which not only
help to wear n,way the loose material
from any surface it runs over, but also fairies it downwards, and deposits
it elsewhere. This "rain-wash" as it
is tinned, is sometimes a source of
injury to soil already formed, for any
loose material lying on sloping
ground is certain to bo carried down
wards to tho bottom of tlte Held, or
into the nearest stream or river. And
where there is no rain wash or Hooding, hut only stifllctenl  moisture    to
keop the  materials  wet,   the dissolved
pnrticlcH of the rock nccumulul

the stream.-, ami leaves it in the Iml
low, or carries ll Into the lakes m
even Into tho sen These ucoumulu
tions are not yoi ready for ordinary
vegetation and unless they undergo
further transformation will not produce the crops of the farm, There are
here just two points to remember ;
lirst, thai most soils have betn formed where we now find them, and, secondly, that it is the exceptional soils
that have been transported hy water.
This transportation of soil is constantly going on. If there is the least
slope the mere action of gravity, aided by heavy tains, will gradually
work tho liner earth downwards. The
observer will note that tho sandiest.
or stoniest part of a Held is at the
top, nud the iim st. soil at the bottom. Apart from the action of the
rain-wash the soil seems to work its
way bodily downwards "it a sloping
surface, leaving the top hare, and tlie
fertile soil crowded nl the bottom.

The Drink Traffic is Doomed
The British Government has decided that the Saloon is manufacturing too many paupers and
criminals.   It will probably close many thousands of these public nuisances by the Licencing BUM.
New Zealand has enough lunatics and has decided to stop making them by forcing the
liquor out of a large part of the land.
Europe generally, is fighting the Drink Curse, and the Russian Government has insisted
that the skull and cross bones be placed on the labels of the liquor bottles.
America, the great leader in this reform has chased the devil across nearly half the territory,
about 35,000,000 people being under prohibition, Bankers, Merchants, Attorneys, and Statesmen say
it pays; men with rags and red noses, and the criminal class say it does not: Which is the more
reasonable to believe ? CANADA, our beloved land has said:
The Saloon Must Go.
Ill 1
In every Province from Ocean to Ocean the Statesmen and the Christian Churches of all
denominations are fighting for the prosperity of our land by insisting that the Crime-breeding,
Home-destroying, Boy-corrupting Saloon must go. A Local Option measure will be brought
before the Parliament of B.C. in a few months. No legislation can be perfect, but experience
extending over many years says this method  is as  good as any—it   leads to  prohibition.
Next Sunday night at the Methodist Church, Local Option will be the theme.
Solos, and bright singing. Prize recitations will be given by elocution medallists. At the close of the service an opportunity will be given by any who
represent the liquor interests to speak upon the other side of the question. On this question the pulpit is no coward's castle. Doors open at 7. Service
commences at 7-30, tlie stewards will be greatly assisted by an early attendance.
This great movement is world-wide ; it is not the cry of one particular church, or the vain efforts of a fanatic ; it i.s not directed against any particular
individuals,   but  it  is  an   universal  crusade against iniquity and spoilation ;   it  has  an  educational,  and  therefore  an  ethical  basis;  upon   the  question,
the whole of Christendom is united; it is a fight between the Church of Christ and the gates of Hell.
Who will win? No sane man doubts. The Liquor Traffic is Doomed.

Strain on Imperialism.
London, Nov. 2*> Referring to the
Dikh Immigration to Uritish Columbin, the Globe says: "So far as treating him as a subject, of tbe same empire the Canadian often is ignorant
enough to treat, tbe Sikh or Hindu as
•'Nigger." The Canadian is putting a
pretty hard strain on imperialism
when he begins to treat the Indian as
a man utterly beneath himself while
be still asks that thc Indian civil service should be open to himself and
sons and that Indian trade should be
free to Ohnadians."
