McBride Government Recognises that Cranbrook is an Important
Agricultural Centre
Some weeks ago the Agricultural Association sent Mayor Do Vere Hunt to Victoria to
ascertain ii the Provincial Government would assist the Cranbrook Association in securing
grounds and buildings tor permanent exhibition grounds in this city. The following telegrams are self explaining-

Deputy Minister of Agriculture,
Victoria, B.C.
Can you wire amount allocated tor Cranbrook Agricultural Association.    Have to
make definite arrangement for grounds tonight. •
P. De Vere Hunt,
Victoria, B.C., May 25th 1911
De Vere Hunt,
Secretary of Agricultural Association,
Cranbrook, B.C.
Amount allocated lor Cranbrook Agricultural Association will be between s5.000.c0
and $6,000.00.
Wm. E. Scott.
Deputy Minister Agriculture
From the above it will be seen that the McBride Government is heartily in sympathy
with any movement that will prompt the Agricultural resources of the province. Also that
Southern Kootenay is a vast agricultural djstrict that promises in the near future to be. the
' Garden Spot" of the province.
The thanks of the entire community is due to the Government, also to Mayor Hunt, for
ttie energetic efforts put forth by him, in placing this matter before the government, which
resulted as above stated. '

Report Parliament Will
be Dissolved in July
With Election in
Ottawa, May 26 - The Evening
Journal soya:
Leaders ol the Conservative party
have received most positive assurances that there will be a general
parliamentary election in August or
September. This was the statement
conveyed to the Journal this morning at the headquarters of the party.
The opinion was vouchsafed that parliament will not meet on July Uth,
as arranged, but that Earl Orey will
announce the prorogation ol the
house shortly alter Sir Wilfrid tetania (rom England early in July.
It was stated that Conservatives
have expected this for a loag time,
and have been making their plans accordingly, with the result -'tat tiiey
are well organized to foes the mine,

The Journal was also 'tnffrmed
that R. L. Borden, Conservative
leader, will probably curtail his three
weeks tour of the west to mnet tl.e
exigencies of a pre-election campaign.
"He wlll visit ev?ry province .• thc
Dominion, except British Columbia,"
said otic of his chlel lieutenants,
"and will spend n week probably in
hia own constituency of Halifax."
This announcement by tne Journal
Is not generally accepted in political
circles, the majority ot those conversant with the situation being strongly of the opinion thnt the house will
meet In July as urYSnged when Sir
Wilfrid Laurier left tor London. Future events will depend to a great de-

Bsat'rng and Growing.
i Persons concerned as to the small-
ness of their stature may take heart
' from the experiences ol Jeffrey Hudson, of whom a likeness has lately
' been acquired by tho National Por*
trait Gallery. After reaching the nga
of seven, when he wns 18 inches high,
he did not grow at all until his 13th
f year. Then, according to his bio-
grapher, "he was made a captive at
< sea by a Turkish rover, and having
| been conveyed to Barbary, was them
; sold as a slave, in which condition
he  passed  many years,  exposed  to
i many hardships, much labor and frequent beating. He now shot up in a
little time to that height of stature
which he remained at in his old age,
about three {eet nine inches, the
cunso of which he himself ascribed to
tho severity he cxncriemvd during his
captivity."—Pall  Mall UuiEeitc.

he got up and started to go out, when
the waiter asked him to pay for what
he had eaten.
"Why, I gave you the dumpling for
Ihe pie," he answered.
"Yes, but then you should pay for j
the dumpling," argued the waiter.
■ "That wouldn't be right, for I did
not ent the dumpling," retorted the
man as ho went out.
The waiter—not being very quick
at figures—couldn't see anything

The Emperor
of the Air
Story of an Aviator Who Wu
Too Ambition.
Copyright by American Praaa Assouan.,11, ML
It was uiy part for months to uso a
party trlepliono wire will, all Its annoyances. I huve nulled for linlr an
tour at a Unit- wlillo Iwo woiurn discussed a domestic problem or bit ot
•caudal before being able to call up
aouje one rrltb wbotn 1 ueeded to com
munli-ate luimedintely.
M» telephone Is in the upper hall,
near my bedroom. One night I waa
■wakened by a stnirp ring. Jumping
out ot bed. I went to tbe telephone and
took up tbe receiver.
"Wellr" I said.
No reply.
"Hello, central!"
No reply.
"Uellol Hello! Did you rail me upT'
Tben there was a lot of clicking, at
the end of which a woman's voice
"for heaven's sake, John, come at
once!   Bring help."
My name Is not John, and I knew the
message was not for roe, but some one
was ln trouble, aud 1 realized the Importance of gettlug the address at
"Where shall I come?" I asked.
"Why, I'm Ethel.   I'm at home."
"Where la your home!"
"Ob, dear -85 Merton avenue!"
There wus a click, but as the connection was not broken 1 inferred that
the receiver hud been dropped rather
than shut off. Then I heard a dialogue
between a mnn and the woman wbo
bad been talking to me. The man
•poke flrst:
"I'm tbe emperor of the air. In my
aeroplane 1 ride above the clouds. 1
am always at war with tbe worms

tbe woman said:
"Oo lo bed. Vou have to fly up to
Mara tomorrow. Don't you remem-
ber-lbe Martians have sent for you?"
"You are right. 1 have nearly 3D,-
000.000 miles to make. When I return
1 shall publish au account ot my trip.
1 ahall tell the world all about tbe
Martian canals. 1 shall eolve tbe
great planetary problem of tbe age."
"So yon will. Now go to bed and
get a good rest preparatory to your

you say anything more I'll kill you.
Do you suppose that I. the emperor
of tbe air, need restl I'm not mortal.
I'm Ihe embodiment of one wbo flew
np over tbe Andes and never came
down. He was received up Into heav

Frum the sounds 1 then beard tbe
man eeemed to be driving the woman
out of the room.
There was a mingling of voices as
they receded until tbey were losL A
door that before had been closed had
probably been left open aa the two
persona went om, for 1 beard a clock
ticking, and presently lt struck II.
Tben I heard voices again—otber
voices evidently tn a different locality.
"la tbat you, Tilly?"
"Yea.   You're Maud?"
"Yea, I'm Maud. I've Just got a letter from Sam. He says we must be
married on the 13th and sail the aame
•venlng.   lan't It terrible?"
"What'i terrible?"
"Why, to be married and go on a
wedding trip on the unlucky 18th."
It was evident that the scene hod
changed and I wae likely to get no
further Information of tbe woman In
distress. 1 dropped the receiver, ran
Into my roam, dressed, and, having
written down tbe address 1 bad received tbat I might not forget It, Milled forth to afford relief to the troubled one. I knew of no eucb street
•• Merton avenue, but reasoned that
It was not far from me, since Its phone
was on tbe same party wire.
There la ene thing about tha mat-
tar that I have not mentioned. Tha
voice was one of the softest, most melodious I ever heard. While I wu
Ustenlng to lt, while dressing and aa
I milled forth I could bear the poor
girl—for the voice scorned to Indicate
tbat ibe was a glrl-pleadlng with tha
man to go to bed and get the needed
rest for his Journey to the planet Man.
It waa evident to me that she waa shut
up with a lunatic, and I dreaded lelt

driver to take me to 80 Merton avenue and be quick about It De aaked
me where It waa, and 1 told Um It
wu at Merton avenue.   Ba must find
It. and Bnd it at once. I would pay
double fare. Witb this I got into the
back, banged tbe door, and the coachman drove on. Where to go be didn't
seem to know any more than 1 did.
After going back nnd forth a tew
times and turning several corners he
bailed a policeman, wbo sent him ln a
different direction from any he bad
yet followed. My flrst thought was to
tuke the policeman with me. but some-
bow I couldn't bring myself to share
witb uny une the pleasure of relieving
a woman iu distress—that ls, if lt
would not be too late for any one to relieve ber.
The driver Dually stopped In tbe middle of the street 1 opened tbe door
aud asked:
"Well, have you found Merton avenue?"
"This Is Merton avenue, sir," was the
reply, "but I can find the number."
He drove back und forth, while It
aeemed to me thnt I should go wild
with Impatience. Then, suddenly catching sight of u number lu a lighted
trnusom—78— I Jumped from the hack
and hurried along tbe street till 1
found No. 85. The bouse stood by
itself, no other being within a hundred
yards. 1 run up tbe steps aud tried
the door. It was locked. Desiring to
enter without ringing, I went around
to the rear aud fortunately found a
window unlocked. Entering, 1 ran
Into tbe lower hall und stole softly upstairs.   I heard voices.
The only weapon I had brought with
me was a stuull rope. Armed with
this, 1 suddenly appeared at the door
of tbe room within wblcb I heard the
voices aud exclaimed:
"A message for tbe emperor of the
In the room, pacing back and forth
and brandishing a knife, waa a young
mau about twenty years old. A girl
of eighteen was following him about
talking with bim In a voice of great
distress. Both turned at once on hearing my voice.
"Are you tbe emperor of the air]"
I nsked of tbe man.
"1 am."
"1 have been sent by the king of
space, tbe realms of Infinite etber, to
guide you to a new machine, a machine that wlll bear yon not only to
Mars, a neighboring planet but to
Neptune, tbe most distant and tbence
to tbe fixed stars."
My reference to his proposed trip to
Mars awakeued confidence ut once.
"Where Is this machine?" he asked.
"I am deputed by tbe king of space
to conduct you to lt Come. I bave
a carriage below. You must depart
before the break of dawn."
The knife dropped from bis hand.
Instead of using It ou tbe girl be kissed ber and followed me dowu to tbe
carriage. Having whispered to tbe
coachman to drive us to a police station. I got lu beside the emperor. On
arrival at tbe station 1 beckoned to a
policeman, who came to tbe carriage.
"This Is tbe emperor of the air," 1
said, pressing tbe policeman's arm by
way of warning, "ltemaln here while
1 go Inside.   I'll be out directly."
I told tbe sergeant at tbe desk my
story. We bunted up the uddress of
an Insane asylum, and ln half an hour,
without eveu ustug tbe rope weapon 1
had provided, we bad bim uuder confinement
From tbe asylum 1 drove back to

knew tbe young lady would be waiting for a report of what bud happened. On arrtral I rang tbe bell and

me eagerly with ber eyes. 1 told ber
that tbe young man was where he
would be safe from himself and could
not injure others. Tben 1 asked ber
to explain matters.
"He li my brother," Bhe said. "Unfortunately he bas sufficient means to

A Clergyman'! Qheit Story.
A ghost story waa told by Itev. E.
Singleton, D.D., In a sermon delivered
at the Boston harvest festival. Dr.
Singleton believes that angels minister to people, and that they are reluctant to speak ol their experiences.
One man, however, had spoken to him
about an adventure of the kind. He
was u clergyman, and bad occasion
to drive down u lonely mountain side.
The night was pitch-dark. He could
scarcely see, and when ho came to a
bad part of the road ho distinctly lelt
a hand that took the horse's rein, and
drow it to ono side of tbe road. He
went on a few yards, und the rein be-
came loose. The next day, when ho
came back, whut happened? A tree
had fallen over that spot, and if he
hud gone on he would huve been dashed down u precipice.
A Rare Cheek.
At (luy's Hospital, London, ls a patient for whom a new cheek is being
provided. After an operation he was
left with a large hollow, devoid of
ikin, in the check.    Ten days ago a
fiicce of skin was partially removed
rom the biceps, says The Dully Mail,
and stitched to the side of tho nosu
and mouth. The arm was stnippid in
position against the head, and there
it will remain until the transfer is
Hew the Holy Day li'Observed In
Montreal Prison.
There are all sorts of reasons for
going to jail. Probably the last one
that would occur to the average miud
as a motive for entering those gloomy
precincts is a motive of piety. Yet it
we* this and no other—though perhaps a pardonable leaven of curiosity
was mingled with it ia some cases—
which attracted over a hundred visitors recently ou the "Fete-Dieu" or
festival of thc Blessed Sacrament—to
the Women's .lull on Fullum street,
Montreal, conducted by the Sisters of
the Good Shepherd, to witness the
solemn religious celebration of the
holy day.
To muny of the strangers present
this was a first glimpse of prison lite,
and it wus so different from their preconceived notions of such a grim institution, that had they not been informed of the purpose of the building,
tew would huve suspected its penal
At three o'clock the assembled visitors were conducted to the third lloor,
places being assigned to them in the
galleries overlooking the body of the
chapel, which was already tilled with
the prisoners, women ot ull ages from
thirteen to fifty or over, und the penitents, about equal in number, who,
after the expiration of their term ol
imprisonment, voluntarily remain
with the sisters to do penauce for
tbeir misdeeds and learn some useful
trade. The prisoners, in neat dark
blue or brown uniforms, made with
little shoulder-capes (the color indicating the nationality, English ot
French-speaking, with black net veils
on their heads and each wearing a
medal suspended from a ribbon round
her neck, lilled one-half of the chapel.
The penitents, on tlie right side, wore
black dresses und white veils, with
light blue medal ribbons. The sisters
in churge wear robes of spotless white
wool, those in the cloister being distinguished by the black veil. The
white altar, lavishly decorated with
flowers and lit with many candles,
showed richly against the crimson
carpeted sanctuary. A male choir in
the gallery led tho musical portion oi
the service, the prisoners und penitents singing the responses with surprising fervor and sweetness. The
celebrant and his assistants, in gold-
colored vestments, were attended by
white-Burpliced acolytes and choir
boys in red cassocks carrying beautiful lamps.
The great feature of the Fete-Dieu
celebration is the procession, when
the Sacred Host is carried aloft by
tho priest in a gold onteusorium as an
act of public worship and devotion to
the Holy Sacrament.
Two sisters led the way, followed
by the prisoners, the penitents and
the other sisters, all carrying lighted
candles and hymn-books. The choir,
choir boys, acolytes, incense-bearers
and priests came last, the visitors following respectfully as the procession
filed out of the chapel, through the
long corridors, shining with cleanliness, and hung for the occasion with
lings, banners and garlands of flowers.
All through the immense building,
upstairs and down, in and out of the
large assembly and community
rooms, nnd along the apparently-endless lines of corridors wound tlie solemn procession, the Moating incense
and the sweet chanting of the hymns
penetrating to the remotest corners of
the prison. Then out on one of the
wide verandahs and down the steps
to the vast garden it passed, into the
bright sunshine and verdure of the
lovely May afternoon. At the east
end a large crucifix is raised, and in
the centre of the soutli wall a covered
statue of St. Joseph und the Holy
Child forms a sort of open oratory.
Throughout the whole ceremony the
behavior of the prisoners was as decorous and reverent as possible, not
the slightest hitch or interruption occurring to mar the beauty and solemnity of the celebration.
Returning to the buildings, the procession re-entered the chapel, where
a solemn benediction was given, followed by the singing of the "Te
Deum," the heartiness of the voices
giving decided warmth and significance to the magnificent hymn ol
A Literary Sensation.
Mr. Charles A. Mugrath, the stalwart member of the House of Commons for the constituency of Medicine
Hat, whose book on the immigration
question has been one of the literary
sensations of the season in political
circles, is the son of a man who was
very well known ln his life time
throughout the Province of Quebec
and Eastern Ontario—Mr. Bolton Ma-
grath, of Aylmcr, inspector oi Protestant schools in the Province of Quebec. The latter was a keen-witted
Irish gentleman of the old school, aud
hiB humorous speeches and bright Bailies were the life of many otherwise
dry proceedings at the annual conventions of Quebec and Ontario teachers. His son, who was brought up aa
p. land surveyor, went to the Northwest thirty years ago, and from ordinary surveying and engineering work,
became connected with irrigation aud
railway interests in Southern Alberta,
and has been for years manager of the
Alberta Coal & Huilwuy Co. at Lethbridgo, which controls all the minea
and most of the Irrigation systems
uud railways in the vicinity of that
city. In IrllD ho married Mabel L.
tiult, daughter ol the late Sir A. T.
Hull, who waa the founder of the Alberta Coul & ltailway Co. He waa a
member of the old Northwest Legislative Assembly lor two terms, aud
was tlrst elected to the House ol Commons in the Conservative interest at
the last general elections.

Indication of overfeeding, however,
will cause a drop In the feeding for a

this feeding of oats and bran, more

feeding is continued until the lambs

This method of feeding saves n great

for growing the lambs-a period of
from five to nine weeks. It Is often

The  Bonei Are Genuine.
The opening up of a grave on St.
Anne's Island, -uid to contain tlie
bonus of the great Chief Teeumseh,
brought considerable criticism on certain Wullaeoburg citizens about a
year ago. St. Anne's Island is a Inw,
Hat piece oi land ill the river channel
oil west of Wullnceburg and had often been claimed to bu tlte burial
place ol the Indian chief. Those who
conducted tlie work of digging up the
bones felt certain that they hml thu
actual remains of Tcoumseh, hut there
was instant criticism from various
parts, not only over the unauthorized
desecration ol Uie grave, but also over [
the possibility ul tlie'bones not being
those of Teeumseh at all, [
It is now  stated  lhat the  Hi.ard ol |
Trade of. the town will bring forward |
evidence   to   proVO   that   uo   mistake
was made in opening the grave, and
that it is really tlie bones of Tecum*
seh which were found.
i'nr! of this proof will be In an affidavit concerning the statement made
hy an aged Indian woman that tlie
bones in the griiVO were those of To-
cumscli. This old squaw ih said to
have been prewnt when the grave
wits opened and to hnve made iier
statement there as well as elsewhere
that the'seaichers were on the right

When London Has Bttn In a Turmall
ol Violence.
"Such things could not happen
here," says tho modem Londoner
comfortably, as he reads tho descriptions of the street-fighting in Berlin,
and the wild charges of the police on
the populace.
Perhaps his faith is justified, but
London has had its share of street
rioting in ts time, although when the
troops or the police have come into
conflict witit the mobs the result has
Usually been u speedy and comparatively bloodless peace.
A glance through the "Talks About
Old London," which has given us
many vivid pictures of the recent past,
will convince anyone that, well within living memory, tho English capital
has had its populur disturbances of
serious  import.

church in Cannon street:1" he says.
"Their origin appeared to have beeu
tho appointment of Rev. Hugh Allen,
a neighboring clergyman of very broud
views as afternoon lecturer. This
raised the ire of Rev. Bryan King,
the rector of St. George's, who objected to Mr. Allen entering his pulpit.
"This action was resented by the
latter's friends, and recriminations
took place, and hymn books wero freely used as missiles, and a large body
of police was requisitioned to keep
order. These riots were continued over
a long period, and wero only ended
by the bishop removing Mr. Bryan
King to another sphere of labor."
In 1855 there were dangerous riots
in the Kast End, and Mr. Chas. Kdward, in the 369th "Talk of Old London," said of them:
"At that time tho Bread Riots were
spreading terror all round. At night
sometimes rumors of a contetnpluted
raid would Hy round, and before going
to bed wo would barricade our doors
and windows, and pile the furniture
against them for protection.
"Then, following them, came the
Fenian scares. 1 was ono of the speeial constables sworn in, and it was
our duty ut uight to parade ubout in
parties in reudiness lor auy emergency.
"Wo wore white bauds on our arms
and carried staves. London wus a
dreudful place iu those dark duys."
"F.D.," of Wimbledon, iu the 897th,
Talk gave a vivid account of the fum
oua Chartist Riots.
"One of my most vivid recollections," he says, "is of the Chartist
Riots sixty years ago. A greut meet*
ing took place at Kensington Common
before a disorderly crowd started out
to present a petition to tlio House.
Fergus O'Connor, fiery and enthusiastic, rode on horseback at the head oi
the procession.
"Red banners, bearing riotous inscriptions, waved over the heads of
the rubble, aud hero and there the
'red cap of liberty' danced on top of
a pole. I was present at the Chartist meeting in Blackfriars road, at the
corner of Webber street, when a cab
drove up uud a well-known newspaper
proprietor and solicitor stopped out.
They both addressed the crowd, aud
were afterwards tried at the OU
"Then there was a great riot in
Bishop Bonner'!- fields—an open space
in those days, but now built upou.
Many a man hud hia head broken
"Tho imposing procession that
marched from Kenning ton met with
iin inglorious fate. When it reached
Westminster Bridge tho horse police
rod j in amongst them and scattered
them to (he four winds, banners and
ull. No one heard much of the Chartists ufter that."
Scarboro  Pioneers  Had a Hard Road
to Travel.
To be a Scarboro uld boy and look
tht part, a fellow has to be about six
fe-Jt in height and weigh about 300
pound-j. There were some big husky
fellows among the crowd of ofd boys,
wh) met at the annual banquet held
at the Clyde Hotel in Toronto recently.
Farmers and market gardeners most
of   them   with   bronzed  and   weather-
tunned  faces,   they   had  gathered   together for a good time and the had it.

he will tell you that there was little
time fur "lairy visions",or "gulden

"Not much else but hard work in
those days, we had a little fun at

togging bees and barn-raising was

men, und women too, who belonged
to tni.*. gang.
"Whisky was cheap in those days
und good, but it had a good deal to

"Why, 1 remember an uncle of mine
who went into York wit.i a load ol
grain, which he sold at a good price
and In addition to this stroke of busi
ness, he hired u recently arrived Irishman, It was getting late when they
left Yolk, aud on the way home thej
were accosted by two men who asked
fur a lift in the wagon. They volunteered the information that they wen
looking  for   work.
"After proceeding about a mile
along the road they came to dense
bush. There was a "hoot" giveu by
one of tlie two men and two othei
rough-looking fellows sprang out from
the shadow of the trees and grubbed
the team  by  the  head.
"Just then tbe two men in the wagon found the 'work' they were looking for. Oue struck the Irishman
with a club, ..nocking him clean out
uf the wagon, while the others attacked  the fanner,  and  rubbed  him.
"Bulli the fanner and his hired man
escaped alive, but they were laid up
for many a day.
"The gang got cleaned out at the
finish, 'ihey became too bold and ont*

time of his death. They threw him
over the old wooden bridge that spanned tlie Don. I well remember thc
chunk uf blood-stained wood thut was
cut out of tne bridge at the place
where his hi. 'y had rested before being  dropped   into   the   river.
"The police got after the gang then,
and one of them, a man named Brown
was hanged, out in the open near
Berkeley street and Front. He was
an innocent man. It was one of the
women in the gang that struck tie'
blow thut killed Hugan. She confessed long afterwards.
The rest of the gang, with the exception of a woman, who turned informer,   were  sent  to   Kingston."

The Best Month In the Year.
There are three months in the
twelvemonth wherein lovesick couples
desire particularly to be wed: they are
May, June and October.
October is the best month. It commands the open grate; it hns the apple, the chestnut; it tempts one to the
chilly invitation . of frost. Aud the
man is no man who cannot respond
to the cull of the cold. Let every boy
remember his enrly days—how he lay
in the garret, or attic—and endured
the pangs of chill. Did it do him any
harm', Uid anything come to him
but endurance?
In October occurs big things. We
find chestnuts beginning to burst; we
have the apples at their best; the
pumpkin is really yellow aud ready
lor the pie. The other nuts ure getting ripe and yearning for us. So in
this month of mouths we have at once
the vintage of the year and the great
pleasure of its cool climate. It is the
month of marriage, thc month of lute
watermelons und thu delicate cabbage.

the  anomalies of our national  life.
A force militant against the ravaging disease is the Canadian Association for the Prevention of Tuberculosis, of which Karl Grey is honorary president. Guided in other olli-

New Curtain  Material!.
As colonial nnd mission furnishings
are those approved just now, tbe window draperies that accompany them
are of a simple nature—expensive material may be used, but the effect must
bo that of simplicity; otherwise thero

ftbhornnce of everything calculated to

In the   Auditorium ln the   evening
there was   a boxing   match  between
Hurry   Lombard   aud   Billy Lauder.
There   also   were two preliminaries.
Tiie I.r.st   between   Hunt, of   Cran-
I brook, and Btreetor, both boxers be-
' ing    unknown     to     pugilistic   fame.
Streeter   weirhed about 300 pounds,
j and   Hum   about  135.    The contest
wns the source of   much   amusement.
: and reminded one of the scone of the
"Lion and the Mouse."   The contestants werc tho recipients of continuous
. applause (rum the audience.
j    Tho second bout wus between Harry
[ Quigg aud George Bowcn, both Per-
| nio hoys, who wrnt four rounds.   The
, young    men    showed    some sparring
nbil ty, nnd prestntjed at Unit a bout
favorable of mention.
Then came tho bout of the evening
between Harry Lombard and Billy
Lauder. It was evident that Lauder
was in tbe best condition, and Lombard was reported to he suffering
from a recently broken rib, but those
present say that tbe bout was fairly
contested. Laurier showed np in the
bust form all through tbe tight, and
did most of the lighting, which was
long range, ns un agreement had been
made thnt tho mill should be under
tho "clean break" style. Lauder ln
the eighth round put Lombard down
for tbe count of nine, and frum tbe
time bo rose to bis feot till tbo end
of tbat round Lombard stalled. At
the conclusion of this round Lombard
had the referee inform tho crowd that
Lombard was suffering from a broken rib. From a scientific point tbe
sparring was excellent, and as the
pugilistic "faas" werc satisfied, wo
may wifely say thnt it was a good
Jim. Hates acted as referee lu a
very fair und Impartial manner, and
uo complaints wero board. Lombard's
second was Mr. Dt'&gon, and Luudor's
W. H. McLaughlin. There wus a real
good crowd present including several
bullet, to see the exhibition of tho
manly art. The receipts amounted to
about $700.00.
Lauder left for bis home at Modi
cine Hat on Thursday. He hns a
bout, on nt Haskntoon in the early
part of June.
The football game played in the afternoon between Crnnbionk and a
team from Conl ('reek ended in a
draw, after playing one and a halt
hours. The pluy was i|tilto even, the
miners putting up a good game and
the locals doing their best to score.
No goals were scored in the game,

In business every extension Is care*
fully thought nut. In politics tbe
political wharf Is built as fnr Inland
as possible, the beautiful Idea being
to make it entirely superttous.
The following are extracts fiom
the speech in the house oi commons
of a. .-v Goodeve, M. P., mem.-or for
Kootonay, on the subject -if 'Forest
Reserves and Park."
While nearly all of the subsections
of this section havo pr mary references to the protection of the park, and
therefore, are quite necessary and
auite within the preorgatlvcs and
rights of the governor in council, this
remark does not apply to subsection
(b), which iin-. to do with an entirely
different matter. It refers to certain
speeial i rivileges which may be
granted at the will of the minister.
Nearly all of tbem are very trainable
privllogou, for instance: 'The cutting
and removal uf tlmher, tho working
of mines, quarries and mineral deposits, tho removal of sand, grave),
earih, n'tntto or any other naterlnl,
the pasturage of cattle or other animals.' The minister has stated the
difficulty Lhat ho has found in dealing with persons who desire special
privileges; and yet by this subsection,
lie is asking for an unlimited, arbitrary nnd extremely valuable power.
This section names privileges, which
I tlo not hesitate to say would run
up to millions of dollars iu value,
which it is proposed to placo arbitrarily iu tho hands of the minister. If tbis bill pusses he becomes au
absolute c/ar in regard to the granting of those privileges. I do not
think this parliament should place
any man in that position. In the
past such absolute power in tho
hands of a minister has led to a
great denl of trouble, and many instances have occurred in which its ex
orclso has been very much to the Injury of the public domain. Private
Individuals hnve boon able to make
large gains, in some cases immense
fortune?* in cases exactly parallel to
this. Hon. gentlemen know that some
years ago thero were scandals in re
gard to lenses granted to certain men
in the wostern provinces. Yet by
this bill we are placing in tbo bauds
of ono man the sole authority to
grant similar privileges. One mnn
might go to the minister and ask
for tbe special privilege of grazing
sheep or cattle, and might apparently make out a "good case for it. Another man who came afterwards
might have au equal right, but in the
mind of the minister might not make
out an equally good case, and bo refused. I say the power is a dangerous powor to place in the hands of
any one man. I think the minister
should first submit to parliament tbo
regulations which he proposes to apply iu tbose matters, and they should
be such that all men would bo placed
on an equal basis.
When the House rose ut 6 o'clock
I was very glnd to hear tbe Minister
of the Interior agree with me regarding thc great responsibility which
will develop upou bim in this connection, and also witb regard to the
immense value of the natural resources of which this measure will J
give him the absolute control. He
snid that he agreed iu every particular with the remarks 1 made, but,j
gave as a reason for having this sec-
tlon iu thc bill the fact that the nd-'
ministration of these resources hnd I
beon carried on in n similar manner j
by this government before, and thnt'
here was grent difficulty iu making
general regulations which would restrict and control the giving away I
• if those various resources. It does!
not appeal to mc as a sound reason j
tbat  because this government allow-'
ed certain things to occur previously
tbey should continue ihat po.icy. ii
that policy has been shown to he Injurious to the public Interest, and io
have resulted iu abuses, we ought to
endeavor -"ft change it, and prevent
this abuse In the future. That is why
i Bhould like to -it.* th.s particular
clause cut uut.
This clause refers, among other
things to mineral deposits. Thn Ion,
minister will remember that the Dominion Mining institute bus f-»r y_<us
taken special exception to tbe admin-
I strati on by the department of the
Interior of mineral deposits in tin-
laud under its control. Ho strongly
do they feel on this point tiiat there
lu* not been a year, when it bus not
boon brought up nt their annual
mooting. They have appealed to the
Mines department to bung in a hill
setting forth fixed regulations govern*
Ins the disposal ot minerals on Do
minion government lnnds. We had
that question up on the Mines committee of which the hou. member for
Rainy River (Mr. Oonmee) is chairman, but I regret thnt so far that
committee 1ms not brought in a bill
dealing with this matter. 1 remember
one instance cited by the Dominion
Mining institute. Certain capitalists
had sent out prospectors into that
northern country, and had them there
two yenrs at heavy expense. Those
Inspectors found certain indications
of value, and the parties made ap*
plication to tlio interior department,
but after considerable delay they
were informed that they could not
obtain the mining rights. They
withdrew in disgust their prospectors
nnd snid thrt under such conditions
no man would undertake to prospect
in that country. 1 give this simply
as an illustration. The same thing
has occurred with regard to cutting
timber. I cannot see why this gov
ernment should not have fixed regulations for the disposal of timber in
those reserves. Let them regulate the
manner of cutting, so ns to save the
young trees, and lot them throw open
the cutting of the timber to public
auction, nnd give evory one n fair
chance. Let thorn give the cutting of
tlie timber to mon who comply with
tho regulations, and whose tenders
nre the highest. In thut way the
fooling that is undue favoritism
would be removed, the department
would bo relieved o! much responsibility, und the public would have
greater confidence in the admin Is tra
tion of these reserves. Without going further into tbis argument, I
think the minister will see the force
of some regulation of tlmt nature
being imposed before we give him
the absolute control of resources ol
such great value.
This bill also deals with the water-
power sites and powor transmission.
A few years ago these tilings were
considered of not. much value, not.
only In Cannda but In tflont plures;
but today the use of electrical energy
from wnter power has made such advances thnt it. is probably ono of tho
most valuable of our resources. Wo
can readily understand, therefore
bow men wlll bndoavor to get control of the watorpowers which nre on
those reserves. The main arguments
made for this reserve on the eastern
slope of the Rockies is thnt it controls the headwaters of the magnificent rivers and other waterpowers wo
have there, so that any ono will see
thnt the clause we aro now considering Is denling with resources of immense value. And one should not
have to   emphasise   the necessity   of
our having a standard set of regulations governing tbem, so tbat applicants for water rights would know
the exact conditions under which thef
could obtain them, the rates fixed.
the lengtti of time they could hav*,
the use uf thern, etc. It is not a suf-
licent answer for tbe minister to say
that it is difficult to make such regulations. We are here to discharge
our duties and responsibilities, no
matter bow difficult, and see that the
public is protected. We know what
our own commission appointed by
ibis government has said regarding
these watorpowera, and the necessity
of protecting them. I mbmlt that
we should not pass this clause as it
-tand-j. but thnt tbe minister should
be prepared to e-ive this parliament
some idea ol the regulations he proposes tn adopt in the disposing of
these various natural resources men-
tloned in this section.
I want to re'ternte and make very
clear my position on this matter. I
would like to take up the argument
of the minister when he was trying
tu show that a difference of principle
existed between the position of the
bon. member for Nortb Grey (Mr.
Mlddloboro] and my own. I think
the minister did not well sustain his
contention. Both tho hon. member
for North Qroy and I contend for tbe
one principle of absolute publicity
und absolute equal rights in the disposal of these natural resources. I
will tnke the minister's own argument. In dealing with my position
be referred to the mining law. That
is the principle I have contended for.
In every province of the Dominion
we huve s'atuntory enactments, or
mineral laws. Kvery prospector
knows exactly the conditions under
which he cnn stake out a mineral
claim, lt does not lie in the option
of the minister or of the governor in
council to say whether be shall or
shall not receive that claim. The
law bus fixed all the conditions. Tbat
Is exactly tbe principle I am contending for, so that when a man applies
for a grazing lease he shall know the
conditions under which bo can obtain
tho lease. I think the minister
scarcely realizes that ho Is asking In
tbis bill to he made a king over
..I.ODO.udO square miles of territory,
even u man above the king. Practically he is given the power to say to
one mnn, "Go," and he goetb; and to
another man, "Come," and be com-
eth, because he will be given power
to refuse that man a right ur to give
him a right. He will control everything except the foe simple to that
land. Ho becomes an absolute czar
■ »f that great kingdom of 16,000,000
ucres of laud. I think even tbe minister of the interior should hesitate
before be asks this parliament to
grant him such absolute power. All
I am contending for Is that which
bus boen so well advocated by the
hon. member for St. Anne (Mr. Doherty), thc hon. member for South
Toronto (Mr. Macdonnell), and the
hon. member for Winnipeg (Mr. Hag-
gnrt>. Wo want tbo regulations
brought down in n schedule and put
in this bill. Wo want to know what
are the conditions under which the
minister proposes to dispose of theBe
valuable usnets. Wo are not opposing
this hill, we are supporting tbe minister on the principle of this bill, but
we want to make it If possible, of
such a character tbat it will conserve
tho great natural resources of this
country. I would ask tbe minister to
allow that section to stand for fur-
thor consideration, nnd give us some
id on of the regulations he proposes
to make.

Mus.c lo an overflowing house.
Crowds were turned away. Thi* text
was "When they heard of the flpsur*

(Act. xvii. 32.) Pastor Russell made
some prefatory remark-, explaining
that although he had accepted the
pastorate uf the London Tabernacle
congregation, this should uot be understood tu Imply that he had any
thought oi leav.ng American perman*

Pastor Russell remarked that he
w_s not preaching for popularity, bur
to re-establish "the .aim once deliver
ed to the saints," which, in a marke-j
degree, bad boon lost during the Dark
Ages. He stood on the broad platform
of the Word of God, unrestricted by
any creed fences made by men. He
was answerable to no sect or party.
He had already discussed the Ilesur-
r-ctioii subject for thr-*; Sunday-; and
assumed tnat his Interested hearer*
hat. kept in touch with him during
his absence, through the pr'ss rej-.r'.-
As some who heard St. I'aul pr-'ooh
tho resurrection of tlie dead mocked,
so, quite likely, many have mocked
as tbey read Pastor Russell's sermons. Nevertheless, the Word of the
Lord standeth sur-; "There shall be a
resurrection of tne dead, both ol the
just and thc ut:just. ' It was the great
Teacher Himself who said, "All who
art. in their graves shall hear Lhe voice
of the Sou of -Man and shall come
forth; tbey that have done good unto
thj resurrection uf life—perfection—
they tbat have dune evil unto the
resurrection of judgment," crisis, trial
(John v. 2d, 21); Acts xxiv, 15).
To thoae thut believe tbat the dead
are mure alive now than when they
were alive, tlie doctrine of the resurrection must, of necessity, be foolishness. And whoever logically believes
In the resurrection cf tiie dead rnu.it,
of necessity, consider the popular
views on man's condition in death
absurd in tho extreme. There is no
middle ground. Either man is dead
when he .s dead, as the Bible declares,
and can have no further knowledge ur
hope, pleasure or pain, until awakened from den. [ or else man does not
die at ail when he seems to die—-a
theory with which tho Bible is at war
und which wc chum has no foundation
in fact or reason, lt is a mythology.
'The entire heathen world believe this
llieury to-day. Tho doctrine came into
Lh.' Christian Church In opposition
lo the " resurrect ion" doctrine long
centuries ago - about tho fourth century, when hordes <,f heathen were
baptized and called Christians, with
but slight appreciation of "the faith
once delivered to the saints."
Numerous objections to the resurrection are raised. It is claimed that
it would be impossible for (iod to re-
lUrrOCt   the  dead,  if  they   were   really
deud. Ii is claimed that, if our Lord's
words were fulfilled anil all that are
in their graves should come forth,
the earth would bo so densely populated that if stood on each other's
bonds several rows deep all over the
earth there would not be room fur
them, lt is claimed that It would be
impossible to provide food and raiment for so muny. The resurrection
Is denounced as contrary to Lhe luws
of nature, according to all the history
of the past.
The latter claim wc admit. The resurrection of the dead will bo something out of keeping witb anything
in man's experience. Only thoae who
have an implicit faith in the Creator
and in His promise will be able to
receive this doctrine, which credits
the Almighty with a Divine power exceeding anything else that could be

at that time, the resurrection opportunity provided for the world ol mankind, but it was very appropriate thut
he shoul. give to the Cnurch a more

Him with the chilling remark. "If
Thou hadst been hero (if You had

our brother had not died." Jesus did
not dispute that Lazarus was dead,
nor tell hor that he was more alive
than over. He m-rely promised that
her brother should  rise again.
Martha replied that she knew that
Lazarus would ri V in the resurrection, ut the Last hay. Jesus assured
hor that lie would be tho One Who
would resurrect the dead, and that He
was then present with hor, intimating
that she might usk even then for her
brother to be revived. Hut Matha's
faith was insufficient, When the Master asked, Where have yo laid him?
she replied that it was uow too late,

Manitoba, is in her DDth year; hor
husband la ten yeara younger; together lhe)' form a pair that would arouse
the interest uf any visitor Like many
of the old people tor whom Canada
Is noted, they are Irish.
Mr Grimsby was born in Ireland 81.
\eats nge thin summer, he crossed the
ocean al twelve witb an aunt who
lied oil the trip, and he arrival in
Canada i.l >ne, tiuding a brother aud
ither relatives near Kingston, Out
Vfter reaching manhood he wus a
sailor lor fifteen' years, both oil the
Ireat Lakes uml ocean-going vessels
from Quebec. Meeting Sarah Jane
Gallagher he married her and settled
lowu on a (arm near Perth. Uut.,
riven hei by her brother, and there
.hey lived Ior over thirty yours. When
ver seventy he left fur Manitoba and
lettled a* a pioneer neur Kstovan,
nut ufter three years removed to an-
•ther farm neur Neepawa. successful
y  operating it tor twelve years.  Lasl
Ugust he buil. u small house in Nit.
(_awa town and retired-but now bus
bought tne houso-movaig outfit ol
the place, und intends to enter thut
irdubua line of work next season.
To talk to Mrs. Grimsby seems al-
.. ^Jt weird. She was burn before the
battle of Waterloo; came to Canada
as u child—and here the reader will
pardon a rather personal touch in this
narrative, for she casually mentioned
thut hor first teacher in Cuuada was
Charles Norris Manly, aud she was delighted to hear that tliis man was the
great-grandfather of her interviewer
She further gave good evidence tbat
her age was authentic, for she said
that John Grunge Manly, son of Chas.
.Manly, wus teacher in the school at
"Oliver's Ferry," as she called
Smith's Falls, and was a year or so
younger thun she was. By looking up
family records il was found thut Rev.
John Grange Manly died in Toronto
two years ago at the age of ninety-
live. Apparently there wore many
long-lived people amongst the settlors
near Perth, Ior in Bow land's cemetery, where the Bellamy Road forks
toward Almonte, is buried Charles
Norris Manly, aged ninety-nine, ami-
near his grave may also be noted
"John Rath, aged ninety-seven,"
"Mrs. James Smith, aged one hundred years und throe months," "John
Marshall, aged one hundred und throe
years," and "Mrs. John Marshall,
aged ninety-eight."
Mrs. Grimsby, though blind and
deaf, has ail mental faculties as bright
as ever, aud seems likely to live far
beyond the century murk. As a
proof of bor physical condition—she
fell two years ago and broke her
arm, aud, though it was considered
impossible at hor age, the bone knit
and joined perfectly; after three
month, in a plaster cost it come out
healed and lit for use, though "weaker than the other arm for a heavy
lift," she says. She has borne two
children, Mrs. Thomas Jenkins, ol
Selkirk, aud Mrs. Robert Heal, ot
tveepawa, and though she married
somewhat late in Uf. these daughters
are themselves middle-aged women
now. Whether it be true or not that
the race is growing weaker, aa some
affirm, it is certainly true that few of
of ll.e present generation will see such
a hearty old ago as these two old
people enjoy—and none will do their
own housework at such on age ai
Mrs. Grimsby does.
Menace of the Salmon.

British Columbia, the same danger
that threatens always when game or
fish are too easily taken, and that is,
thut with so many clever devices for
capturing the salmon before they
en'or the rivers, not enough may
r. ach the spawning grounds to keep
up tho supply. Restrictive legislation
has boon attempted, but bus not proven very successful. To lessen the
danger the Canadian authorities have
established several llsh hatcheries,
The lirst wos built at Hon Accord on

h**. necessary for a large number of
fish to reach tho spawning grounds
for It is estimated thut each female

eggs, so that, If all wero hatched, aud

large enough to bold them. But it is
likely thut not more than four per

a large number come to griof before
their four years of life are over, and
thoy return to perform their function iu tho perpetuation of the race.

Telling of the treatment of people
in the asylum for the insane nearly
four score years ago, he says:
"Blood-letting and restraint appear
to have played a prominent part, and
light and bathing to have been considered luxuries. Amongst the items
charged for maintenance are the following: Paid \V. McBuy, for twelve
hogshead of wuter (for one month),
one pound, fifteen shillings. W. Hammond, for thirty pounds of rush lights,
one pound, five shillings. Harvie and
Allan, tor eight tin blooding cups and
one tin pan, seven shillings nnd sixpence. D. Collins (saddler), for three
bund mufflers, one pound, fifteen
shillings. G. T. Hay, for twelve strait
waistcoats, at twenty shillings each,
twelve pounds.
"The twelve hogsheadB of wator
above mentioned must have been for
drinking and cooking purposes—'tea

The item for rush-lights gives one
th: impression of people living in the
'dark' ages—and the reason for their
use must have boon a rigid economy
It is difficult to conceive how they
managed otter dark to follow their
occupations with no other light than
that furnished by a rush light—which
was made fro u the pith of a rush

was not much brighter than the glial-

Absent  Voting  In  Australia.
Consul-General John P. Bray of
Sydney, Australia, has sent out a
complete collection of tbe election
lows and regulations of the Australian Commonwealth.
lt is interesting to note the provisions which these laws make for what
is known as absent voting. The Australian Commonwealth, like the United States, is divided into states, with
election sub-districts. By one method
for absent voting the elector is permitted to cast his ballot at any polling place within the state or district
for which he is registered on making
a simple declaration that his name
is enrolled ou the records of one of
the polling places within thut state
or district.
The second method of absent voting
Is by mail. An elector who has reason to believe that during the polling
hours of an impending election day he
will nol be nearer than five miles to
the polling place at which he is registered, on application may receive a
postal vote certificate and a postal
ballot paper. With these he may, at
any time nn election day, present himself before any Government officer or
employe at any place in the Commonwealth and in his presence murk the
ballot. Ho will then deliver the marked ballot to the Government officer or
employe, having first put it in a sealed envelope, and the latter will mail
it to tho electoral officials nl the district for which tho voter is enrolled.
The ballot so sent will bo counted
when received by the electoral officials in tho same manner us if it had
been regularly and personally cast ut
t... (wiling place.

The jurgost of the perpetual pen-
sions is that received by the Duke of
Richmond. It amounts to $95,000 a
year. The story of this pension takes
one back to the day3 of Queen Rlizm

per chaldron on al! coal exported from
the, Tyne and burned in England. Her
successors held this duly until the
reign of "hurles II., who granted it
to thc flrst Duke of Richmond. He
ind his heirs received it lor over a
■entury, till in the time of George
III. it was changed to the present an-
iual pension, which is known as the
vichmond Sliding.
The Duke of Norfolk obtains $300

Duke of Rutland $100 under n like

Comes With Good Health
Through the Use of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills.
Her brightest duy for every girl
and every woman is the day when
.-he looks well, feels well and is well;
but with most of tbe fair sex such
duys are rare. Instead they suffer
Irom a painful languor, have a terrible weakness in the back, headaches
lhat make everything seem blurred,
und a ceaseless aching in the limbs,
These und other trials afflict girls
and' women through the lack of rich,
red blood nature is calling for. Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills Imve given the
joy or real robust health to thousands of women who are happy today
because these Pills actually make the
rich, red blood that makes weak ones
well and strong. This statement has
been proven over and over again.
Here is further proof from Mrs. 5. J.
Brook, Manitou, Mun., who says:
"After a busy term on second class
work, followed only by a short time of
relaxation, and a strenuous two and
a half months normal course, in
March, 1906, I began teaching school.
I had a heavy rural school, with a
large attendance, and consequently a
large number of grades, thus I found
the work a great nervous strain. Tliis
added to tho overwork of study, previous to teaching, soon resulted in a
"run down" condition. When vocation time cume I did not pay much
attention to my condition as I thought
the holidays would fully restore me,
but us I resumed work again I soon
found tbis was not the case. One
morning when I came to breakfast
everything reeled before me and I almost fainted away. The lady with
whom I was hoarding advised me to
take Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. She
always spoke very highly of them,
her daughter having used them with
the most beneficial results following
a severe attack of inflammatory rheu-
mutism. 1 decided to take her advice, and had only taken a few boxes
when I began to improve in health—
and such un appetite as I had. I rapidly gained health, my face had a
healthy glow, and I gained In weight.
I have since often recommended Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills to others who
have used them with equally beneficial results, and 1 believe the I'ills
to be a standard remedy for the ills
(or which you recommend them."

perry Creek gold fields have received considerable attention during thc
last year. Mine owners are much
elated with tho amount of gold taken
out Inst season as well as the development made on a number of gold
quartz properties.
Thore la a large number of prospects in the Crnnhrook district that
hoar the ear-marks of mines.
1 The big hydraulic mines at Perry
Crcok are preparing to commence operations.
There are comparatively few people
who know anything tit the txteut ol
the placer milling In the Cranbrook
district. There is a popular Idea that
tlie days when placer mining can bo
carried on with Its meed of profit has
passed. This idea is held for the reason lt Is claimed, that placer fields
havo been discovered and the wealth
extracted long ago.
The truth about plncer mining however, is that future years will see a
larger yield of plncer gold than in
the past. As a proof of this fact It
is only necessary to note the amount
that is being takon out year after
year hy the companies that are engaged in that direction. The Wild
Horse diggings were tlrst worked In
IStl.l antl 1864, and the crude appliances of those days were used to advantage, and millions iu gold were
taken out. After a while, however,
many of the "old timers" abandoned
the diggings. But as years have
passed since thnt time. Irom 120,000
to $40,11(10 has been the yearly record
for the district. Gold remains ln
large quantities on Wild Horse and
Perry creeks, Moyie and Bull rivers,
only awaiting modern appliances for
its extraction, and the future yield
will surely prove as in the pnst that
there is large quantities of placer
gold yet to he taken from the rivers
antl streams of South Bast Kootenay
and that the palmy days of Wild
Horse Creek nre not pnssed, but on
the contrary, are yet to come.

Cabinet    Crisis   Brought   About   by
Fielding's Determination to
Force Reuipruclty.
A special from Ottawa is to thu effect that a cabinet crisis is iu full
swing, and if Sir Wilfrid Laurier persists'in bis determination ilmt. parliament shnll adjourn for eight weeks,
while he is attending fe Imperial
conference and the coronation, tho resignation of Mr. Fielding is expected.
Ever since tiie Premier chn ll god his
mind about not going to London, the
finance mlnstter bus strenuously opposed the adjournment policy on the
ground thnt It would be a fatal sign
of weakness If the hnnd of tbe
government whs taken from reciprocity plough, and that ho was quite
capable nf pushing the agreement
through without the assiatanco nf Sir
Wilfrid Laurier.
The situation reached the crisis
stage on Tuesday night when it became known thnt Mr. Fielding had
stubbornly rejected the proposal submitted by Sir Wilfrid nnd his cabinet
col lea Kites, that it wns highly desirable that the liunnee minister should
take a complete rest for two months.
This has been urged fnr some dnys
pust without, result, nnd Mr. Fielding
Is credited with declaring to his colleagues at the council table, that nothing will stand in thc way of push
lng the arrangements with President.
Taft tn a satisfactory conclusion, so
far as he is concerned, and thnt he is
prepared to stay here all summer to
attain their end, nn which he claims
ble reputation as a public man is
Sir Wilfrid Laurier, however, ls
cijualty determined that parliament
I shall adjourn foV two months, and
: Mr. Fielding take a holiday,
I Strenuous efforts are being put
forth tu mnke Mr. Fielding change his
mind, and on his return to the capital, from Montreal, he was approached by Home of his colleagues who
■pointed out to him that he urgently
I needed a long rest.
! Sii Wilfrid Laurier was uot in tho
house tonight and he Is said to be In
conference with Mr. Fielding, trying
I to point out thut no harm will re-
[sult from nd fon rn mont for two
[months. Thu outcome of tbo crisis is
problematical, hut it Is significant
that no word has been mentioned tn
the house concerning thu plans nf thc
|government about adjournment,
: As Sir Wilfrid 1ms adhered tn his
arrangements, and thnt the House
will adjourn from Mny 23 to .Inly 18,
the Immediate resignation of Mr.
i Fielding may he looked for. Thc
most, strenuous offoi'ts nre being put
forward by tbc Cabinet to keep Mr.
Fielding from kicking over the traces,
i point to tho BOrloUfl nature ol the
crisis, nnd followers of the political
barometer hero at Ottawa nee storms
i ahead.
1 The resignation nf tho mnn who
made the pact, nnd pledged the honor
I of Canada, would probably mean
thnt during Lauder's absence in London, dissolution nf the House and an
election during the next few weeks.
Parliament has panned a motion to
adjourn for two months, Luurier is
on the high boom nu his way to London, and the country Is anxiously
awaiting Mr. Fielding's action.
"We never hnd nny intention of
closing down either the smelter or
tho mines of tho British Columbia
Ooppet company," said manager Ed.
E. Warren, of Greenwood, R, 0, at
the hotel Bpokane last uight. "We
hnve enough British Columbia coke
on hand to Inst ns n mouth, but we
nro not using it nt nil. The smelter
is running entirely on Pennsylvania
coke and will continue to do so,   at
, least  until  the ond of the conl strike
| is in sight.
"So far from slacking up In our
operations we intend to push development work luster thnn over,   both
jon our producing mines and the pro
poetics wi! huve under bond. Mean
while the compuny will continue pay
ment of Its regular quarterly dividends."
Mr. Warren is a very young mnn
to hnve so responsible u position as
that of general manager of so important a company. In tbe boom
days of Hossland when he was a junior in the profession of mining engineering, ho was a member of the hockey team which held the championship of Britlah Columbia. After bis
removal tn tbe boundary country he
organized and captained the Phoenix
team, which gavo the Nelson and
Rossland clubs a hard contest for the
championship nt several succeeding
carnivals at Rosslnnd. "Pllnky"
Warren ranked just as high a few
years: ngo among the amateur athletes of Canada ns E. G. Warren now
does among its mine managers.
There will be a vast amount of
work done In the mines of the Cranbrook district this summer. From
all of the camps comes cheering news
that development is going ahead, and
thnt many prospects wiy become producing mines before the season closes,
