Seven Thousand Miners to Return To Work Within
a Week—General Rejoicing is Being Seen
All Over the Affected Territory
"Have succeeded in reaching complete settlement of strike, which has
been agreed to and signed hy hoth
This telegram, flnuuimcing that the
long strike of thc coal miners in district No. 18, the U.M.W. of A.,
which inclines practically all thc
large operating mines of the Crow's
Nest Pass and Alberta, had come to
an end, was received frum Hon. Robt
Rogers, minister of the interior, hy
Hon. Martin Burrell ou his arrival
late last night on the delnyed coast
A dispatch from lielhhridgc received later states that a settlement waB
reached after a conference lusting all
yesterday, the miners and the operators getting together through the
efforts of Hon. Mr. Rogers. Within
a week, it ia expected, the mines will
be in full running order and thc 5.G40
union men who quit work at midnight on the Hist day of March last
and thc 1,500 non-union men whose
occupation censed witli tiie commencement of the strike will again find
The basis of settlement, according
to the Lethbridge dispatch, is the
Gordon award as to wages, the recognition of the check-on" system,
slight changes in the wage schedule,
chiefly regarding contract work, and
an agreement for o period of two
The settlement of the strike, which
has lasted nearly seven months,
brings to an end one of tlie sternest
fought conflicts between labor unionists and employers which British Columbia has ever seen. The strike was
one which affected directly or indirectly many hundreds of thousands of
persons in the prairies and in Ilritish  Columbia.
In the immediate strike zone a serious business depression followed tbe
closing of the mines and tbis ileprefl*
slon was felt iu greater or lean degree over a very widely :'xtnnd<.d
In West Kootenuy tbe mining and
smelting industry was one ol the
heaviest losers through the closing of
the mines antl tlie Increase tn tlie
price of fuel which resulted from coke
having to lie brought from Pennsylvania and mnny men were thrown
out of employment as n consequence.
The cost of coke,laid down herefrom
the east was $12 per ton compared
with less than M per ton paid for
fuel from the affected district. The
Granby smelter and mines in the
Boundary were compelled to close
down owing to this enormous increase in the cost of operation and
although the Trail smelter and ♦he
British Columbia Copper company's
smelter continued in operation throughout the seven months, it was only by a curtailment" of production
from the mines with which they were
connected and at an enormous cost
to the two companies that tbe furnaces were kept iu operation.
In Cranbrook and throughout the
country relying for its conl upon district No. 18, which produced about
12,000 tons per day, the cost of f icl
to the consumer was very heavily
Increased nnd in some cases actual
coal famines hnve been reportud.
Placing the increased average cunt
to the consumer at thc tow estimflt.e.
of $2.B0 per ton, thc people of the
districts affected have paid SD.OdiJ,-
000 more for their fuel than under
normal conditions.     And the greater
proportion of thiB 16,000,000 has
gone to the railroad companies aB
the higher cost of the coal Imported from Montana, Pennsylvania,
Vancouver island and other colteries
has been in nearly every case attributable to the transportation charges.
The prompt nettlpmpi.j of the Alberta and Crow's Nest coat strike by
Hon. Robert Rogers, the recently appointed minister of the interior, is
a happy augury for the new government and an accomplishment tbat
will give the ittmost satisfaction
throughout the prairies and British
Columbia, where the ill eflecta of the
protracted suspension of work ' have
already been severely felt.
In British Columbia smelters and
other industries have been crippled
by the cutting off of their usual supply of coke. On the prairies the situation was infinitely more serious,
and there waB every reason to fear
that thc continued closing of the
mines might there have caused hardship, suffering and perhaps death.
The happy results of Mr. Rogers' efforts at mediation has removed this
danger, and thoBe districts in which
industrial and commercial activity
has been strangled by thc conditions
prevnilfng in thc coal mining territory will now continue their career
of progress and prosperity.
Tlie new government has speedily
won its spurs and the minister of the
interior wbo has so promptly achieved what tbc protracted labors of the
Board of Conciliation failed to accomplish haa won tbc gratitude ot
the community and has added another to ttie already extensive list of
successes with which bis name is associated. Mr. Rogers is a man of
action. He has already written hit*
namo large upon tlie history of Manitoba, and he gives promise of splendid service in the larger field ..rtcred
by tbo federal arena. He tt was
wbo ably seconded Mr. Roblin in
putting into effect tho railway policy
thnt bas so vastly, assisted and accelerated the progress of Mgnitoha during recent years. His policy in regard to the establishment ot a government telephone system in Manitoba has been carried to a triumphant
conclusion and his elevator policy
has been of immense advantage to
the farmers of thc west. He haB
now added one more to his laurels.
His career as minister of the interior will be watched with added interest by the people of Canada and
expectation will be even more confident that hia federal career will increase hia already distinguished reputation and will be a bright page in
the hiatory of Canada's progress and
achievement.—Nelson Daily News.

thorn (or records ot tho future, tt
may he as well to mention thnt
while the collection already In the
hands of the Provincial Archivist Ib
not large it is rich in matters of
importance to students of western
It consists chiefly of thc official
documents of the Colonial period,
which extended Irom the formation
of the colony of Vancouver ffsland in
1894 to the union of thc Crown Colony of British Columbia with the
Dominion ol Canada in 1871. This
was a peculiar and exceedingly interesting era, tor it was the formative
Period of our history, in which
events occurred that Influenced In
no small degree future political relations and economic conditions.
If a proper understanding of tbe
rpoblems which agitated Colonial administrators Is to be reached, attention must be given to the Journals
ol the Colonial Legislatures, the despatches ot the Governors to the Colonial Offlce in Downing street, the
despatches ol the Secretaries of
Btate for the Colonies to the several
Governors, the Interdepartmental
letter-books, and similar sources, tor
without « examination ol such do-
oilmen*-, .it Is not possible accuracy
to portray conditions as they then
existed, or to appreciate the eflect in
alter yoars ot the Colonial policy.
In these early papers one may find
many significant details concerning
the San Juan embrogllo, the reservation of lands for the use of the
native tribes, the building ol provincial highways, the work ol the Royal
Engineers, the establishment of a
branch of the Royal Mint at New
Westminster ln tho early sixties, tbe
inauguration ol public schools, and
other matters ol general and local interest.
More or less complete series of the
official documents may he found ln
the Archives Department, which when
Indexed and arranged will form a
valuable; addition to ovir knowledge
of a phase of provincial history that
has not yet received due attention.
The despatches of Governor Blans-
hortl, 1850 to 1851; the Journals ol
the fir*.-. Legislative Assembly of
''.ini'oitver Island which met ln Victoria In 185C; the Minutes of the Legislative Council ot Vancouver Island, August 30th, 1851, to February Gth, 1861; the Governor's Private Letter-hook, May 27th, 1859, to
January 4th, 1864; thc Vancouver

Company's Letter-book (Jam.is Douglas to Archibald llarelay am: others,) May Uth, 1859. to November
titti, 1855, may be instanced as being ot particular interest. S'ut
these are only a few of the records
belonging to the government end
they are mentioned merely to. give nu
Idea of the value of the collection at
a whole.
The several periods covered by thc
history ol British Columhla may be
roughly designated os '
1. The period ol apocryphal voyages and exploration, 1578 to
1774, to which belong tho doubtful
relations ot Juan de Fuca, Muldo-
nado, de Fonte, and others, respecting the Strait ot Vnian, as
the North-west Pass..*", was called
of old :
2. The period ot discovery, exploration,, and the Inr trade", 17"!
to   1849 :
,1. The Colonial period - which
commenced with the founding of
the Colony of Vancouver Island ln
1849 and ended in 1871, when the
united Colonies ot Vancouver Island and British Columhla entered
the Dominion ot Canada as a province :
4. The modern period, which mny
be said to have commenced in the
year 1871 with the establishment
of the Province ol British Columbia.
The third ot these periods, the Colon.*.!, may he conveniently divided
into three separate and ilstinct sub-
periods—that of tho Colony ot Vancouver Island, 1849 to 1866; that ot
the Crown Colony ol British Colum
bia (innlnlaud) litr.8 to I860; and
llinl of ihe United Colonies, 18M to
1871, The fact that tho two colon
les were miller one and thu same
governor Irom 1858 to 1868 does
not imply that tlie minim of each
during those yoars were administered
hy the sumo stall of otliclals. Actually each colony had its own governmental establishment, all<] consequent
ly each had its own separate and distinct series ol official documents,
which were not affected by fie dual
governorship. Occasionally, however, the oflicers ol the Government
ol Vancouver Island were called upon
to assume duties in the neighboring
Crown Colony under tho Douglan regime.
Ol the earliest extant records concerning the territory uow embraced
in the Province of British Columbia,
It may be noted that they relate to
the various expeditions, by land and
sea, whlcb were undertaken with the
object of examining thc const of
North-West America and its vast interior and tor the purpose of trade.
Exploration and trade went hand-in-
In the last quarter ot the eighteenth century tho lines of exploration
converged upon a land heretotore unexplored and unknown; lor the 'irst
time reliable information concerning
it became available, which supplanted the mythical and legendary accounts, till then the current coin of
the geographers and cartographers
who had given it their attention, Of
the expeditions ot the Spaniards
from their establishments on the
Mexican Paciflc sefcoard, of the Russians ..ool tiieit |.eTs*.s on thc Kam-
chatkan Peninsu'a, of tho British discoverers who used the Hawaiian Islands as a base lor their operations
on the Northwest Coast, of the
French explorers who followed the
course of the British, of the American traders who generally outfitted
at Boston, and, like tho British, used the Hawaiian Islands as a supply depot of the overland expeditions
ot the Canadian fur-traders—lt may
be observed that each was separate
and distinct and that each had a literature of Its own. In tbo Archives of the Indies at Seville are the
reports of the commanders ot the
Spanish expeditions; among the Archives of the Russian Government
are tbe voluminous despatches of the
Russian explorers from the days of
the great Bering (1728) to the cession of Alaska to the United States
in 1867; at the Admiralty and in the
Public Reoords Oflice In London are
the reports nnd memoranda of the
British navigators; scattered among
the various public libraries, private
collections, and learned societies of
the United States are Btich ot the
memoirs of the American traders as
have escaped the ravages of times;
while in the Archivos of the Adventurers of England must be hidden
nway a vast amount of illuminating
material dealing with the explorations of the Canadian fur-traders
west of the Itocky Mountains.
With regard to explorations, it
may be remarked that the material
relating to the overland journeys is
no whit less important than that
dealing with the voyages along the
const. It is Interesting to recall
that the lirst white man to cross the
continent was the Indefatigable
Scotsman, Sir Alexander MacKenzie
U7557-1820), who, In 1793, alter a
long and hazardous journey, reached
a point on the Pacific coast In the
neighbourhood of Bella Coola. After
MacKenzie came Captains Lewis and
Clark, and then Simon Fraser, who
descended the Fraser River to the
mouth of tbe Nortb Arm in 1808.
For some reason or other, not easily
oxplaiued, no connected narrative ot
the last-mentioned expedition has ever been given to the public. The department has been fortunate enough
to secure, through the courtesy of the
explorer's granddaughters, a few documents relative to the work of Simon Frnser ln New Cntcdonla, Including live autograph letters which
are notnhly interesting. The work
begun by Alexander MacKenzie, and
carried on by Simon Fraser and
those who came after him, certainly
deserves attention. Tlie story oi the

Flames   at Trail Ruin   Three
Nelson. B.C, Oct. 23.—The Cen
tral hotel, Goddu Brothers' grocery
nnd the old Klondike hotel at Trail
were destroyed by fire yesterday,
which spread so rapidly that residents of the hotel and rooms over
the store were forced to escape iln
their night clothes. William Munroe and Richard Kermode, guests at
the hotel were sev?'ely burned in
making their escape.
The heat was so Intense that omy
the liberal use of water saved tbe
buildings across tbe street. The
Crown Point Hotel was threatened
several times.
The estimated loss is $10,000 with
<t,3,800 Insurance. The Klondike
hotel and the Goddu grocery are a
complete Iobb, but the greater part
of the furniture in the Central hotel
was saved. The cause of the fire is-
a mystery. It was first discovered
burning fiercely between the hotel
and ttie grocery, having started troi.i
tbe bottom of the buildings, and incendiarism is suspected.

Premiers to Consider Census
Ottawa, Oct. 25.—That a meeting
of provincial premiers will shortly he
called to consider tbe situation
created in the Maritime provinces as
a result of the census was stated
Monday by Hon. J. Fleming, premier
of New Brunswick, who is in town
to see the minister of railways about
the St. John's Valley railway.
"I have written to Premier Murray
of Nova Scotia and Premier Palmer
of Prince Edward Island." Baid Hon.
Mr. Plemming, "asking tben when
we can call a conference to consider
the question of fewer seats for the
Maritime provinces as a result of the
census. A conference of provincial
premiers in general will probably be
called and it is possible within a
short time the Premiers of Quebec
and Ontario may be written to approve the project -and issue a call.
We quite realize we have no legal
right1 to keep the scats which redistribution will lop off, but we think
we have a very strong caae on what
we may call patriotic grounds.
"0( Prince Kdward Island, this is
particularly true. Tbat province
and British Columbia came into confederation at the same time nnd
each had six members.     By a slight
difference in the wording of the agree
ments, however, British Columbia
obtained the right to get what was
due to her in the way of the increase of every ten years but had the
population grown smaller she would
still have been able to retain her
six members.
"In the Prince Edward Island case
redistribution workB both up and
down. For twenty-five years after
Confederation, under Sir John A.
Macdonald, Prince Edward Island
underwent no change in representation, showing that Sir John recognized Its rights to the same number
of representatives under which it
came into confederation.
"As regards Nova Scotia and New
Brunswick, the idea never occurred
to the fatherB of the British North
America act that in its working out
these provinces might lose a large
proportion of their representation.
When one considers that Nova Scotia
and New Brunswick in 1866 made
Confederation* possible by joining the
union and disbanding thc idea of a
Maritime union, it would seem that
tbeir representation ought to be saved. We realize that the recognition
of our claims will depend on ihe
willingness of tbe premiers of other
provinces to give their assistance,

Doubly honored aw. those whom Hla
Majesty invite sto join ms house pax*
ties iur the shooting. Not only art
they tho guests of tm-.r bovcreigu, bul
tney ure in the company ot one oi
tlie best all-round sportsmen ot th**
uay. I'he King is early astir, and
those vvho arc to uccompany aim u
the held have likewise to be about at
an hour that must tee] very strange
tu some of them, lt is at t-iainiuraJ
that His Majesty entertains nis largest shooting-parties, so that what happens here may be taken a aa typloui
ol what goes forward whenever inert
is a shoot at any of the royal residences.
Grouse are, as H rule, very plentiful
upon the Balmoral preserves. Hut
tney want finding, To quote His Ma
jesty's words when Prince of Wales,
"You have to go niter them; the birds
will not come and leed on the lawm
just to oblige you." Therefore thos.'
who arc to shoot with the King art,
often called at 5 a.m., when tlie dawn
ia just breaking. When they leavo
their rooms they find an ample repusl
awaiting thero even at tliis early hour.
There is a large choice of hot and cold
dishes, though His Majesty is himself
a believer in a very light diet, a cup
of coffee and a roll or two sufficing
him for breakfast.
Sadwieh boxes and flasks are then
filled, guns examined, pockets loaded
with cartridges, and off the party sallies. If one of the outlying beats are
to be tried first stout Highland ponic-i
or motor cars are awaiting the guns
to transport them to where their sport
is waiting. The roads about Balmoral
are, in the majority of cases, none toe
good, so that, whenever it is at all
possible. His Majesty rides in preference to motoring.
Moat sportsmen are agreed that, to
shoot grouse to perection, they should
be attacked early in thc morning, before the sun has reached its full
height. When the chosen beat ia approached the King rapidly maps out
his plan of campaign. His knowledge
of woodcraft is little short of wonderful, and he seems to realize instinctively what the birds are likely to do.
He disposes his field with rare skill
and discrimination.
By the time that lunch is due His
Majesty and his guests are quite prepared to do full justice to it. A puck ot
of sandwiches is a very useful addition to a shooting outfit upon th-i
moors of Deeside, but one has not
been tramping for many hours before
the necessity for something more substantial is impressed upon the miud
in no uncertain manner. The royal
lunches are very plain in character,
though ample in choice and quantity.
The King has something approaching
contempt for the sumptuous meal*
that many "sportsmen" of to-day appear to consider a necessary portion
of a day's shooting, and his injunction
ia often to be heard—-"Eat quickly;
we are losing tlie best of the fun."
Aa a rule Queen Mar*/ and the ladies
of the house party join the guns for
lunch, but it sometimes falls out that
the game takes the party farther afield
than was anticipated, and lunch con*
sequently fails them. Upon these occasions tiie King has been known to
sit down under the lee of a haystack
and enjoy a crust of bread and cheese,
washed down with a bottle of beer,
with a sigh of complete contentment.

cigars are not so wasteful, on account

that holders are frequently used; but

no small matter, a wad being knocked
out after each smoke.

Gladstone's Grandson.
It is a curious and interesting coincidence that Mr. W. G. C, Gladstone, the young squire of Hawarden,
who has been selected as Liberal
candidate for Kilmarnock Burgs — a
safe Liberal seat — has entered upon
hia political career at the same age,
twenty-three, as his distinguished
grandfather entered upon his first
contest for Newark in 1H32. Curiously
enough the two arc linked in the
splendid portrait of the great statesman by Millais, which is one of the
moat treasured possessions of Hawarden Castle, with the boy standing beside him. After graduating at Ox

A Group of Aborigines.
In tho costumes characteristic ot
their different races and countries,
sixty-five natives selected from those
who are to be seen at the London Exhibition, made a tour through the city
the other day. On the steps of St.
Paul's Cathedral au interesting photograph of the group was taken. One or
two ot the Indians entered the cathedral ahead of the others, and there
waa an unexpected incident when
others who were about to enter were
told they had better be snapshotted
first. Without the slightest warning
one pink-turbaned individual in white,
who was inside the edifice, shouted
in loud gutteral tones with the object of recalling those who had already
penetrated as far as the pulpit. His
voice rang through the cathedral and
wa sechoed and re-echoed, and before
the ordinary visitors had recovered

when he waa accosted by a friendly
policeman, who quite failed to recognise him in hia somewhat shabby

the man in blue. "Are you working

champion of law and order. "No,"
said the Labor leader, with a quiet
smile; "not on the roof, i work on

this tne only time that Mr. Hardie'*

The physicist Rouelle was notoriously absentminded. One day while performing a laboratory experiment he

As he spoke he involuntarily ceased stirring, and his prediction was fulfilled. The explosion took place with

Thomas Hardy, the great novelist, haa
never smoked a pipeful nor a cigar iu
his life. Kuskiu uoiioired smoking at
all kinds.
Sir T. Lauder Brunton does not use
tobacco in uny form. Other eminent
men, past and present, who have
disliked tobacco are John Stuart Mill.

Non-smokers are, therefore, in very
good company. On thc other hand,
Mark Twain said he commenced smoking when eight years old, und smoked 300 cigars a month Irum the age
of thirty onwards. Edison, at work,

The largest of all the flowers of the

native of Sumatra, so-called after Sir
Stamford Raffles. This immense plant,
says The Scientific American, is composed of five round petals of a brick-
lah color, each measuring a foot
across. These are covered with numerous irregular yellowish white swellings. The petals surround a cup nearly a foot wide, the margin of which
bears the stamens. The cup of the rafflesia is filled with a fleshy disk, the
upper aurface ot which is covered
with projections like miniature cows'
horns. 'J he cup, when free from it*t

i ed that the next Hussion of tbe logis-
i luture will open in tho llrst days of
| January, probably on the 8th or
I Hh of the month. The uuestion
i was derided at a cabinet meeting to-
i day presided over by Sir Lomer
! Oouln,
"In connection with tbo Wolfe
memorial, the point 1 wish to bring
out today is the effect on the destiny
of tbis part of the Nortli American
continent, following on the groat
victory on the Heights of Montcalm
and the part played by both Wolfe
and Pttt at a crisis in lOnglisb history, when the outlook was distinctly unpromising," said F. O, Wade,
when seen at Hrnemur Lodge today
hy a Herald reporter.
Mr. Wade, who is in the city lor
the. purpose of organising a commit,
tee to secure the co-operation of the
cltlsens of Oalgary, with those of
other cities on the continent, in an
endeavor to procure such funds as
will be required to erect, a fitting
monument to the memory of Major
General dames Wolfe, the hero ol
tho plains of Abraham, and lh lecturing on the reason for the need of
such a monument throughout the
various cities of the Dominion, delivered an address to the Canadian
(-lull today in Calgary, and then goes on to Winnipeg and Edmonton to
deliver addresses at those points.
An interesting relic of the groat
hero is fn Mr. Wado's possession, in
tbe shape of u ploce of cloth from
Wolfe's collin, which was secured in
1759 hy one of the church-wardens of
tbat time, at the church where the
general was buried. Mr. Wade had
much that was interesting to say re
garding recent events in the old coun
try, where he witnessed tbe coronation and investiture of the Prince of
Wales. He was much struck with
tbe democratic nature of the Investiture of the Prince of Wales.
It was not a gathering of groat
men, come to do homage to the king
and prince, but wns a heart to heart
talk between the people and the
crown. The singing was not render
ed hy any special choir, but was
supplied by the voices of ten thousand people. Mr. Wade wan one of
the prime movers in the scheme
which culminated in the erection of
the memorial to General Wolfe at
Weaterham, Kent.
Dean Paget presided at the Canadian
club luncheon which was held in the
Young Men's Club rooms of the Central Methodist Church, at 12.30. After luncheon had been partaken of, the
president called on Secretary Hngill
to read his report.
The secretary reported several applications for membership, and Dean
Paget after making a few brief re
marks in which he apologized for the
absence of the other officers of the
Canadian club, snid that they would
have great pleasure and interest in
listening to an address from P, C.
Wade, K.C, whom he had the pleasure of introducing to tbem.
On rising, Mr. Wade was greeted
with applause and in the course of an
extended address said that the subject upon which he had come to speak
was an engrossing one and one that
should appeal to their patriotism to
the fullest possible extent. It was
difficult    to   compress   such    a very
large subject so as to deal adequately in a short time with the     great
feats accomplished by Wolfe for   the
Mr. Wade then traced the history
of the French policy in thn eighteenth century, preceding and leading up
to the Seven Year's war. To understand tbe position ou this continent
at tho time, be Bald, it was necessary to remember that before the Seven Yoars' war the French claimed all
America, from the Alleghanies to the
Rocky mountains and from Mexico
and Florida to the north pole, except only the Ill-defined possessions
of the English nn the borders of the
Hudson Bay.
Wolfe's marvellous victory on tbe
plains of Abraham made this un An
gin Saxiui continent, began tbc history of the United Statos, gave birth
to Oanada and widened the boundaries of tbe British empire to include
this greut Dominion. II Napoleon
bad succeeded at tho battle of Trafalgar it had been said that the fate
of the world would have been changed. Had not Wolfe succeeded at
Quebec, there would have been no
North America for Nelson to save.
In 1758 England's cup of misery was
rilled to the brim. Ht seemed that
her chances of emerging from thc
chaos that prevailed had gone for
ever. Just then, however, two figures loomed up on the horizon. One
in statesmanship and one in war, "I
refer," said tbe speaker, "to Pitt,
who was afterwards known as 'England incarnate,' ami General Wolfe."
Mr, Wade said that if Wolfe had
not succeeded at Quebec the war of
independence might hnve never occurred. Canada had done nothing
to keep green the memory of the
great commander.
Mr. Wade then spoke of his visit
to the church at Greenwich, England,
where he rediscovered the grave of
General Wolfe. He was buried In
crypt filled with sand. The only
memorial to the hero was a stained
glass window, erected by the parishioners one hundred and tlfty yearB after the taking of Quebec.
"I hope," concluded the speaker,
"that a committee of tbis club will
lie organized to take the matter in
band. Calgary is the most progressive of the western cities and will, I
am sure, rise tu the occasion. Vancouver has given ono thousand dollars toward the scheme and we in
Vancouver don't boast of progressive
millionaires as you do in Calgary. I
beg you to keep this matter in mind
and do something. Wolfe began our
history, he wae one of the makers of
our country, hiR patriotism and cour
ace were never excelled. We Canadians should all do lasting honor to
General Wolfe and erect a monument
which will he a credit to our country."
Rev, Dr. MacKee proposed a hearty
vote nf thanks to the speaker for hie
excellent address and tho meeting
closed witb the singing of the national anthem.

There has been no little wailing
among the smart set of May fair since
King George and Queen Mary cnine
to the throne. Thc unaffected,
homely character of tbc Queen is
well known. She represents the
best type of British motherhood, nnd
bas no sympathy with tbat class of
women who live solely for dress and

Au illustration of the manner in
which she has determined to set her
face against the hitter is provided by
the order whlrh sho Issued that no
ladies wearing hobble-skirts wo.ild be
allowed at Court; and there in little
doubt that the sudden death of the
harem-skirt was duo to the fnct that
Her Majosty would not countenance
such a fashion. Among the smart
set the decree regarding hobble-
skirts caused considerable heartburning as quite a numher of ladies
had spent large sums on dresses
| more daring than beau tliul.
And whereas Queen Victoria preferred that ladies attending at Court
should wear low-cut drosses, Queen
Mary looks with disfavor on that extreme display of arms and shoulders
which was characteristic of bygone
Thero    Is   another     decree   wblch
Queen Mary has issued In regard    to

She    has   always   favored    British-
made garments.       All her robes for

, sent out that all who attended court
functions would find Hoyal favor by
! fnllowlng the same rule nf patriotic
devotion    to    British fashions      and
Neither has Queen Mary much sympathy with Indies who resort to aril*
, flcial means of heightening tbe     effects of Nature.    Hor dislike of ladles   appearing   tn   ber presence who
i have treated their complexions with
paint, powder, or enamel is well
known, while although thc toilettes
at Ascot Haven this year were some
; of the most beautiful on record,
j there was a notable absence of
i "Merry Widow" hats in the Royal
| enclosure, owing to Her Majesty's
disapproval of such striking creations.
Then, ngain,  with regard to      the
recreations of society, the Queen    is
rapidly   bringing   about   a   change.
Cnrd-plnying is a diversion not    regarded with favour at Court,     As a
writer    in tho 'Gentlewoman' points
out,    the    King enjoys n game      of
bridge now and then, and still from
time   to    time    patronizes tbo racecourse; but bo makes neither a hobby
(and   is   perfectly   content to divide

I and thu    society    of bis family witb

The Queen cares very little for
racing nud still loss for cardpluylng
Therefore this diversion will not he

set, which, Is after all, a comparatively small section of Hociety.
Tho fashion wblcb Her Majesty has
set hor face against most strongly,
however, is smoking among ladlo-j,
It ie, of course, unite customary in
Home European courts for the Quoen
and her ladles to indulge in clgaret-
tos nftor dinner. Such a custom,
however, bas never been adopted at

(Montreal Herald   and Weekly Star)
Urged on hy a crowd which had
paid their entrance fees for the sake
of "seeing something exciting," another aviator has lost his life in attempting a flight against his own
better judgment. The spectators,
we may assume, are now satisfied
that they received their money's
worth, and the management of the
affair may plume themselves on having furnished that most thrilling ot
spectacles, the sight of an aviator
falling to his death.
Aviation is only in Its infancy, but
the time has already come tor the
assumption ot some kind, of government control over, not the destinies
but the activities of the child. At
present, it is rapidly losing its claim
to consideration as a possible means
of solving transportation problems,
in the purely vulgar and brutal
thrills it is able to afford people who
are willing to pay good prices to see
mon risk their lives. Thc aviator
is the culmination of this line of
pleasurable activity which began
with Roman captives who were willing to amuse the multitude by fighting for their lives for no higher fee
than their liberty, and has pretty
well run tho gamut of the possibilities. Aviators are more expensive
even than automobiles and the artistic satisfaction there is in seeing a
man fall several hundred feet Is said
to he much greater thau in seeing
another man thrown from a racing
automobile. As long as men are
willing to risk their lives in the pursuit of knowledge, which may later
be turned by science into tbe benefit
for the human race, we can but regret: the cost which must be paid and
admire the daring of the men who
offer to pay it. The distinction between aviation as a science and aviation aB a delicious tit-bit for the
morbid and degraded appetite ot the
mob becomes apparent almoBt as
soon as the subject of paid admissions obtrudes itself. If we have
aviation "meets" In Canada in the
future, the authorities Bhould see to
it that some official, independent ot
both the promoters and the public,
is given authority to prevent the enforcement of any such blood-thirsty
scenes as have turned the last two
aviation exbiHtionB in tbe United
States Into vorrihlc fatalities.

Jimmy Fidlor Hilda a Record liv
Mountain Railroading.
To Engineer Jimmy Fidler, once of
the C.P.K.. belongs the doubtful credit
of having ridden a runaway engine ths
length of the Hill, which is the name
tor the great slope down Kicking
Horse Pass in the Rockies. The railroad officials evidently thought the
credit wasn't Jimmy's.
Jimmy started down the Big Hill
one summer day a dosen years ago
with a light engine. He let the engine get away Irom him and touni
himself approaching the first safety-
switcli at much more than the eight
miles all hour prescribed by the time
card lor light engines. The runaway
was already reversed to use the water-
brake, so all that Jimmy could do
was to attempt an emergency application of tiie uir-broke and give it sund.
Having done this without producing
any visible effect, Jimmy turned to
tiie fireman with a sickly grin and
"Here goes for Field!"
He reached for tiie whistle lever an-i
sounded four imperious yelps to inform tlie switch-tender that he wanted
tlie main line Fearing that the signal
might not be taken seriously. Jimmy
repeated it, and then gave it a third
and a lourtli time. The switch-tender
saw that tlie approaching engine was
uiiiuistukubly running itwuy, und the
rules warned him in big. black-faced
type that under such circumstances
he was to leave tiie switch set for tie*
spur tu trap tlie runaway. But here
nas a inuu cleat ly going tu destruction
who wauled to meet tiis fate on the
iiiuiu line. As b.-tweeu obeying the
lules and huiiioi iii,- a dying mau, the
switch-tender allowed Jimmy to tear
down the main line, sounding u continuous succession of signals to the
next switch-tender.
Such friituic reiteration was not to
be disregarded. Number two switch-
tender obeyed the command, then
number three did Die same. The three
profoundly astonished switch-tenders
gazed open-mouthed alter a trail of
smoke disappearing in the distance.
Tiie sound uf a whistle came laintly
up from tlie direction of the smoke,
for Jimmy seemed to have formed tho
ihe fireman's first impulse had beeu
to jump, but tiie rocks looked hard,
and Jimmy's grin caused him to hesitate until he had become too terrified
to act. i'he engine took the sharp
curves witli a violence that culled for
tlie fireman's undivided attention to
keep from being thrown against the
boiler-head and having his brains
knocked out. As for Jimmy, the grin
had frozen upon his face. He sat upon his seut box, staring straight
ahead, working tlie whistle lever like
an automaton.
Two miles and a quarter from Field
ia a tunnel which murks the bottom
ot the steep grade. Ou emerging from
this tunnel the runaway began to respond to the efforts that hud been
made to stop it. Then the two men
recovered their self-possession, and
looked out upon tlie bright world ia
pleased surprise at finding themselves
still in it.
When thoy readied Field the fireman, with an earnestness born ol
conviction assured tlie excited group
awaiting them that they hud corns
down tlie Hill at the rate of 480 miles
an hour. Tlie unemotional record",
tiowever, showed tiiat the actual time
consumed in covering tlie eight miles
Irom Hector tu Field, including a stop
below the tunnel, was seventeen minutes. Even this seemed to Jimmy
Fidler a teat to be vaunted, Ior no engine had ever mude the descent oi
the Big Hill in such last time: and,
it may be added, none has ever dons
it since, for the average engineer Is
thankful lor tlie lime allowance of
forty-two minutes lor light engines.
lhe company though, did not reciprocate Jimmy's sentiments. Instead
of being dismissed in the usual way,
Jimmy was discharge by wire, anl,
as if that action were not quick enough, the message was marked "rush."
A Run on Hsts.
The clo&e ot the professional lacrosse
season was followed by an Incident,
the truth ol which is vouched for by
a clerk in a well-known haberdashery.
One afternoon seven men came in together and took possession ot ths
show room. The shortest member of
the party, a little fat fellow with a
jolly countenance, sat down in a chair
nnd appeared to take very little Interest in the other six, who proceeded to
raid the hat boxes.
It took some tact and ingenuity to
please them all, but the clerk did his
best. One man wanted a hat which
would suit a long head, and as it wai
placed on the top ol a long body, he
concluded thut a wide brim would take
away the steeple-like eflect. Another
man wanted a hat which would suit
a large head surmounting a small la?»,
but he urged thut he must uot be
made to look as though he wus wearing an extinguisher. So it went ou
until tlie whole half dosen hud beeu
suited and were ready to depart satis,
fled with tiieir purchases.
Then the little lut man got up Irom
his chair, drew out a roll of bills uud
asked whut tho total cost would be.
"You seem to have suited them all so
well," ho eaid, "you might see if you
have a hat which would suit a hone
head. Perhaps you will understand
me belter when I say that 1 was abso-
lutely confident last May that the To.
ronton would win the championship ol
the N. L. II. and go alter tha Minto

In an article on curling in Canada
in The Canadian Courier, A. W. Cur-
ran harks back to the dayi when
wooden blocks were used.
There were very iew atones in Canada below the sixties; though the
Governor-General and the officials at
Ottawa n'.ayed with the granites.
The blocks were hardwood, .a-ger
at the bottom than the top. They
weighed about four or five pounds,
and slipped along the ice quite easily,
The handle was made of any old piece
of iron  that could be found.
it was a great event in the different
towns when tho first pair of stone? arrived. The owner would, without exception, want to play his forty pound
rocks against thc five pound block.*.
One game was usually sufficient, a*
the rocks would clear the rink of
blocks a*, though they were pebb'es
on the ice. After that, of court**,
everyone had to "dig down" and buy
a pair of "Ailsa Craigs"; and us the
players in those ancient day-, were all

when they parted witli the wherewithal.
A pair of curling stones in those
days were us highly valued as a house
and lot, for the simple reason thut if
you lost them you had to wait for a
pair to come from the old land—certainly not for their intrinsic value.
If, perchance, a stone was broken then
the man who broke it had to pay for
it. That was one of the stringent
rules of thu game; and force of public
opinion made it a good rule to oh-

uorth country of a prominent men.
who had lost thousands of dollars sp*-
culatlng without a whimper. Oue day,
in a close, hard game, an opponent,
playing a running shot, broke hi?
stone. That man raised more row
about that old curling stone in five
minutes than lie ever had about losing thousands ol dollars. It took him
months to get over it. It was the
only time his friends had ever seen
Vii in really upset.
In connection with the importation
of the first stones into the town o(
Orillia, back in 1B73, there is a ruther
Hood story. Stonewall Jackson, a braw
Root, was the proud owner of the firs?
pair of stones—exact replicas of the
pair used by the Governor-General.
He tried to use his etonea ngnins'
the blocks, and, as happened in other
places, the blocks were knocked al.
over the ring. So, the following year
the other members had to get stones.
It so happened that one duy mi
soft ice Stonewall took a running shot,
which "wabbled," and hitting the shot
on the edgj, a piece was chipp.d out
of his stone. Of course, no one waa
to blame but Stonewall himself. So.
ae nobody was buying him a new
pair, he had the stone with the piece
nut of the side cut down to about half*
size- the stone at that time were Hal,
regular pancakes, and wide. Af er
that, whenever Stonewall had a narrow port to run he would use his
small stone, which was a great advantage, aa it would go through u
hole half the site the regular stone
would require, and saved many gurnets
for him, 'tis said.
There is a decided difference between the stones used then and those
in vogue now. They were flat, lesa
than three Inches nigh, and wide,
about eighteen inches across. They
sat very low on the ice and caught
ull the dirt in sight; consequently
luck was a greater factor in their
game. In fact, the game in those days
was not the scientific game that is
played to-day. It was more of a
roarin' game—but so were the times
Now, it is a science, and must he
practiced and played lor years b i.re
a man can hope to play really well.
Tiie old-timers never played anything but the inturn. and the stones
drew very little anyhow. They sometimes tried the straight handle, but
the stone usually ended up with one
turn or the other, dirt on the ice doing the trick.
Now, the out-turn is played nearly
us often as the in, and the modern
atones draw as much as ten feet 0:1
modern ice. The stones are so shaped
that they brush aside almost any dirt,
and s<> a great element of chance i?
One change significant of the times
to which to a more or less extent li
due the change in the tone of the
sport, is the absence of whisky. In
the fifties, and thereafter lor forty
years, no curling game was complete
without u "guid old cutter of whisky"
—guid old rye. As the "skey" hus
disappeared, so the boisterousness has
faded away. However, the games, in
those times, were much more interesting to the spectator, and goodly
crowds gathered to see the curlers
make merry. After every game litre**
cheer*) was given all round aud a
tiger for good measure. It wouldn't
hurt the game a whit to hava this
feature reinstituted. It if in keeping
with the spirit of the game.
However, those were the good old
days, when the men worked for their
fun and over their fun, and, as we
said before, the game is pretty well
indicative of the trend of the times. 1
more scientific now, but not nearly j
so physically strenuous.

Earl Knits Socks.
Tie Karl of A an caster, who is Lord
Higii Ohaniherlain uf the English
court, has taken up tlie pastime ol
knitting socks in order to prove, for
one thing, tint lie can practice his
belief in the promotion of home industries. This at first excited the
merriment ol the duchess, but it is
understood t. at she now not only
sympathizes with the idea, but assi.stV
the earl in lllling orders.
The earl insists that homemade
socks are infinitely more comfortable
to wear than the machine made variety. He acquired the practice by
finding that when idly sittiug around
ha smoked too much. He took up
knitting, thereiore. uud found it was
a great preventive of the undue use
of tobacco.
On hearing this confession the
Bishop of Lincoln immediately gave
the earl au order for two pairs of
socks, which was duly booked, and
odhers in Burke's Peerage fell in with
tii* fashion.

townsfolk who hud been invited to
the ball interpreted tbis costume as
an insult. A meeting of tin: law students called to debate the question
was of a stormy nature.
One hundred and twenty-two "deadly insults," it is recorded, were offered and are to he wiped out hy a corresponding number of duels. The police broke up the meeting. The duels

to what ts correct for lhe season's out*
door d.ess. Tor ins ta nee, the hat of
straw hrald and velvet has tbe side
elaborations which are one of the new
notes In millinery, Tbe dainty stock Is
embroidered with the smart French
knot, while the Jabot Is edged with
veulse lace. The coat, cut on tbe ac*
cepted straight lines, comes just a lit-
tie below the hips aud Is profusely gar*
nished with silk braid und very large
buttons. Tbesailoi style.supplemented
with large revere, Is seeu ou the collar.
The skirt recalls the models of ftve
years ngo with Its paneled front and
side plaits. 'Hie touches ur satin and
the large buttons bring lt up to date.
Suede shoes with rounded loes, a neat
puruaol mulching Ihe dress uud wblte
suede gloves complete this smart outfit.
In nearly all the new suits the favored trimming Is braid, especially
ibe wide braid, which sometime.-- forms
the collar, cliffs and revets uud trims
the skirt us well.
Panels of braid coming down the
front ami buck ot the Jacket and continued in the same way ou the skltt
ure distinctly the thing
Nh rro w bra Id Is a Iso very s nm rt,
especially when worked out In ornament u I designs on itie skirt and coat.
A touch ot color is added by oriental embroidery on lhe collar, sleeves
<ind revets. There is merely a hint of
thin, und ll Is not allowed io become
too prominent In the color scheme.
Buttons are ulso very much in evidence, some of them of the -utile color
us either the suit or tbe trimming or
as both ami some uf theui sllvei ur gilt.
These lutter ure very small-quite tiny,

priate fur Whitsunday, it being St
Peter's explanation of the Penteco*
tai blessing -"This is that which wa
spoken by th*- mouth of the Prophe
Joel" (Acts ii, 10 18).
Th.* speaker called attention to th
(act that the Prophel Joel tnentionei
two distinct outpourings <>f the Hoi;
Spirit. On- of these, upon tl"- a '•"
vitnts and handmaidens of the Lord
found its fulfilment at Pentecost; am
during the more than eighteen cen
turies since, God's spiritual bless.ni
has been not only with the Apostle-*
hut with u.i the footstep followers o
Jesus—all of God's servants an.
handmaidens. If we Pee this featur<
of the prophecy fulfilled, it become
a guarantee to believers that th
remainder of the same prophecy wil
have fulfilment in Gods due time
The remainder of the prophecy de
dares that afterward—after thes'
day? in which the Holy Spirit ha
been outpoured upon the Church
upon the "servants und handmaid
ens"—will come Cod's time for pout
ing out Hi- Spirit upon all flesh.
St. Peter's statement, "This is thu
which was Bpoken by the mouth o
the Prophet Joel," Pastor IUlssel
said should not be taken to mean tha
whut wus witnessed in the uppe
room un the Day ol Pentecost marl;
nineteen centuries ago, complete!}
fulfilled the Prophet Joel'** predictions. None, lie said, would disput
that the fulfilment of Joel's prophecj
began ut Pentecost, with the earl)
Church, and has been in process ol
fulfilment during all the centime,
since. It is as true to-day as it wai
then, that the blessing of the Holj
Spirit Is granted to all of God's Bor
vants and handmaidens. And th<
remainder of the prophecy will Bl
surely he fulfilled with equal uceur
acy in due time.
After these days nf the Gospel Ag*
—after these days of the outpourins
of the Spirit upon God's servants and
handmaidens—will come the gloriuui
epoch of Messiah's Kingdom, in anc
through which (iod will pour oui
upon the world of mankind a great
blessing of enlightenment and uplift
from the sin and death condition,
now prevailing. It will tit; to the ac
compUshment of tliis and that Sntm
shall be bound fur a thousand years
and the darkness, which now cover;
the earth and the gro*>3 dark ties..
which now hinds the heathen, will hi
chased away by tlie felorious "Sun n!
Righteousness with healing in Hi.-
beams." Thus will he inaugurated
the glorious Day of Messiah, a thousand years long. Tims Lite knowledge
of the glory of Ihe Lord will fill the
whole earth. Thus every tongiir.
shall be brought to confess and every
knee to bow to Messiah as the great
Representative of Jehovah uud 151.
Abraham of old typified Jehovah,
and Isaac typihed Messiah, horn not
of the flesh, but after the Spirit—by
a special Divine interposifion—according to God's promise. Of thii
antitypical Isaac class, Jesus is the
Hoad, the Forerunner of the Church,
a- well as the world's Redeemer. The
Body uf Messiah is composed of a
saintly few, according to the Scrip'
tures, gathered, primarily, from the
Jews, but being completed by additions from every nation, j pie, kindred und tongue. These all, tlie
Apostle tells us, will bo character
copies of God's dear Son, our Re-
dcemer and Head. This, the Apostle
declares, is Divine predestination
(Romans viii, -ll, 30),
This Church class, or Messiah class,
is variously referred to in the prophecies, as well as in the New Testament, us the "brethren" of Jesus
and as "sons of God." Of them the
Prophet David writes, "I have suid,
ye art* gods, all of you sons of th*.
Highest; but ye shall uii die lik"
meu und fall like one of the Princes"
(Psalm ixxxii. 0. 7). These Hll die
like men in the estimation of the
world, because, as the Apostle declares, the world know-th them not
even us it knew not their Master. As
the world did not recognize that the
life of Jesus wus laid down -.uerifi-
cially, neitfier Is it aware that the
followers of Jesus, a tittle handful,
down through tlie Age, have likewise
through Hi-* merit presented tbofi
bodied living sacrifices, holy and acceptable to God.
Thi-- Spiritual Seed of Abraham
all saintly, will constitute thn Church
ol the First-Borns, the antitype of the
Priests und Levltes of the Jewish
Dispensation. With the completion
of this Church, gathered oui of ull
nations, Beets and denominati »n-
Divine favor will return again to the
natural seed of Abraham. As the
Jew was granted the first privilege
or opportunity of becoming the Spirit*
uul Seed of Abraham, he will I.kiwis.- ha ve iln* M r -1 opportunity lo
participate in the blehsing which
then will come to the whole world of
mankind. "To the Jew tir-l" is thf
Divine order in respect to hoth of
thes- b.essings. To this agree the
word-, of the Apostle Paul,
After telling of the Divine election
Df the Church, the saintly few of
both Jews and Gentiles, the Auoatlt,
adds, "I would not, brethren, that ye
should be ignorant concerning this
Mystery, • • • that blindness, In
part [only, not perpetual]) has hap
pened unto Israel," When the full,
''elect," Spiritual Heed shal; hav
been gathorod, shall have been completed from amongst the Gentiles,
then u.i Natural Israel -hall he saved
from tiieir blindness and outea.it con.
dition (Romans ii).
Hi. Paul points out that as Israel']
Stumbling was directly foretold
through the Proj.bet {"Let (heir ta
hie become a trap and a snare"
Psoim Ixlx, 22), so also, God through
tin- propheth has foretold their hi.-.-.-,
ing lut.i on tiiat they would he tb'
first to be blessed under the gloriolii-
Spiritual Messiah of many Member.*-.
Thus il is written, "There shall
come out of /ion  tlie  Deliverer an.I
-hall turn awnv ungoduoesi
Jacob." Here, pietorially. Zioil
i-i a mother ami her Offspring is the
Messiah. Looking again at the type,
we mv thut Abraham r«presented
Jehovah und that Sarah, his wife,
represented the great Covenant
through which Messiah would be developed. "In thy Seed shall all the
families of the eurth he blessed"
iGenesis xxii, 17, 18). "If ye b-
Christ's, then are ye Abrnhim's SneJ
and heir.-, according to the promise"
(Galatians iii. itf. 90).
It has require*.! more than eighteen
centuries to give birth to this ureal
Deliverer. Jesus, the Head, was tie
"First-Born from the dead"; and the
Church. His Members, .-inee developed, will he His brethren, sharers in
His rule ou the Heavenly plane. Foi
i> He uot declared to be "the First-
Born among many brethren':" Th ■

The  blessing  will  come through  th<
-.Teat  Messiah and as a re-ull of t'>
satisfaction  H*    will    make   fer   th
' sins of the whole world, by applying
: to the race the merits of His sacrifice by which He will sea)  the New

also tho-,-   blessed   under  Messiah'*
reign will be children of God, not di-
. rectly,    but    through    the    Messiah.
Directly, they will be tho children of
' Messiah.   Thu- it is  written of Mes-
S siuh, "lie shall bo called Wonderful,
i Counsellor,    the    Mighty    One,   the
, Prince of Peace and the Everlasting
J Father—the  Father   or Life-giver   to

life which He laid down in sacrifice,
namely, the earthly  life,  ig  the one
which He will give to ull the willing
and obedient of Adam's ruce during
Hi* Messianic Kingdom—to be their*
forever.    It is in this sense that He
wilt   Im? the   Everlasting   Father—the
Father giving everlasting life, which
father Adam failed to give.   Messiah
Himself  will   iiuve  no   need   for  tie-
earthly life which he laid down, because the Heavenly  Father ha* given  Him. as a reward  for His obedience, the higher  life—the divine nature.
From of old Abraham, Isaac, Jacob,
David, etc.,  were called the fathers,
uot only because of their relationship
to the Jewish nation, but particularly because Messiah was to come as
their   offspring—"the Seed   of   Abraham." "of the stem of Jesse," "The
Offspring  of   David";   and   so  Jesu.*
was born of this  very  lineage.    But
His exaltation by the Father to the
spirit plane, and the fact that it was
His  eurthly   right*,   which    He   laid
down in sacrifice, which are to go to
Adam  and  all of his race  who will
accept the same on the Divine terms,
puts Jesus in the position of Father
or Life-giver   to the  world,   und   to
Abraham. Duvid. etc., a» well.   They
j must all obtain their everlasting life
through Hnu, and hence will he His
I eluldron.    Thus   the   Prophet   David
| wrote of the future, "Instead of thy
j fathers shall he thy children, whom
I thou mayest muke Princes in nil the
[ 'arth" (P.-alm xlv. IG>. Those father;
! vho   ure   to   he   Princes  are   already
declared to he pleasing to God. They
| -(tested   their  loyalty   to  Him   hy  a
| fiuth which worked in harmony with

[ fallen nature.
On account of this they ure already

only sueh hav been begotten of the
Holy Spirit, that they may be "new-

time, the world has hen unrecognized so far as the Holy Spirit i
Indeed, tlie \postle after Pentecost
went still further and declared thai
"the whole world tieth in the Wick-
ed One." The only aetoil of lie
Holy Spirit must be, as in the ease
of Felix, to "reprove the world of
sin and righteousness and of a cum

however, that tjv* tim - is coming
when tiie world wil* receive a share of
the great Divine blessing, which was

Whose   Personality   Has    I nfluenced
Her Husband's Work.
When Maurice Maeterlinck met lor
thc first time the radiant actress-
singer, Georgette Lohlanc. who we*
to become his wife, he—intellectual
and physical giant that lie was—became suddenly as tongued-tied as any
Belgian peasant in the presence of
royalty. One of hin friends, who wa*
with him on the great occasion, aays:
"Maurice was infinitely timid when
he encountered for the first time, at
the theatre, the 'visage of his destiny'
—I mean Mile, Leblnne. After they
had been introduced the young woman gracefully expressed to the author her unbounded admiration and
sympathy. He, hewever, could find
absolutely nothing to say."
However, such ion unfortunate Btate
of affairs was only temporary. The
author and the stage favorite quickly
became friends, then lovers and today their married life is a source ol
inspiration to their admirers. Up to
the time the famous writer—who, by
the way, was born and grew to manhood in the quaint old city ol Ghent,
Belgium,—came under the spell of
Georgette Lehlanc his literary work,
though wonderful, had been replete
with what a critic terms the symbolic paraphernalia of terror." Under
the wunder-working influence oi love
the somber, pessimistic dramatist became a "stimulating, heartening
essayist and an optimistic philosopher. He was transformed into an
apostle of cheeitulness, courage and
equanimity." The woman who
brought all thii) about pns-,esses, bu-
! yond doubt, a wonderful tempera-
i ment. She is intensely intellectual
j and is beautiful as to face and figure.
: Her most marked characteristic is
■ her belief in her husband's genius.
I One has only to read her views on
I Maeterlinck, the writer and the man,
I to realize that in her mind at least
' "The King can do no wrong." Ju-=t
| at present she is engaged on plans
\ for a theatre, which will probably be
j erected in Paris, which will be do-
j voted the entire time to her bin*
' hand's plays. She frequently inter-
' prets the principal rules in Mae ter-
linek's  dramatic  masterpiece?.
It i.*- popularly supposed that only
people in what may be termed an
advanced stage of intellectuality are
j able to comprehend Maeterlinck's
: mystic conception*'. Such plays as

Bull Head was born iibout'1'332, and

Northwest Indians early in the forties.

seven feet tall,, and his reputation as

Bull Head was burn a pagan and
died one. He stayed hy tlie beliefs of
his fathers. When he signed treaty
in 1S36, he retired to the reserve and
kept his tribe in hand, even through
the wildest kinds of Indian excitement. His word was law. And he
saw his enemies drop off one by one,
from disease-and violence; he saw his
comrades of old battles sicken and he
stayed on,'ruling his tribe. His lone
eye grew dim, and finally fuiled entirely; he stiJl ruled. He sat in hia
log cabin in the winter, or his tepee
in summer, humped, shriveled, a fearful, rheumy-eyed horror of what had
once been the greatest warrior the
Sarcees ever boasted'. Then finally he
died, worn out, siinpjy lay back and
his spirit passed on. He assisted in
sending many enemies on the long
trail before thoy could remove their
incccasins, hut he died in bed as
peaceful men die.
So passed Bull Head, chief of the
Sarcees. He was dirty, and old, and
crippled, but he had been the pride
of the tribe. His mental faculties remained with him to the last, and only
his stubborn stand against the selling
of the reserve has preserved for tha
tribe that very choice piece of Alberta, ten miles square, on the edge ot
the foothills, with a stream on each
side, and the llriest range in hundreds
of miles. It is one of the most choice
parts of the entire Province. Bull
H»ad saved it for the Sarcees. Whether thi* new chief- will do likewise remains to be seen.
Big Belly, fifty years old, is looked
upon as the most likely to succeed
the deceased chieftain. His one rival,
strange to say, is a free who was
adopted into the tribe when peace was
declared, about the time thc Indian
treaties were signed and reserves were
allotted. But the Oree blood is against
the rival candidate, even in this enlightened duy, and Big 11 My will probably win.

A good example of the vicissitudes

The Jesuits' Journal (I itti. I lite).
The MSS. was preserved by the Jesuit
Fathers until ulter the Conquest; but
on the abolition of tlie order by tlie
Pope in IS73 it disappeared, it was
fouud in lfil8 by Mr. Cocnrane, private secretary to the governor, Sir
John Cope Siierbrooke. Mr. Cochrane
found it, together with some waste paper, carelessly placed ut tie bottom ol
a cupboard (in what building docs not
appear), uud evidently de.sigiu-d, sooner or later, to furnish matter to light
the stove. The MSS. was seen by M.
Jacques Viger, an early Canadian antiquarian, who very carefully copied it;
and in 1871 an edition uf 'lhe Journal
was printed by the Abbes Laverdtere
aud Casgrain from M. Viger's copy.
Nearly alt the edition, however, was
destroyed by a tire in the premises of
the publisher at Ottawa, and a copy of
The Journal is therefore to-day exceedingly rare.
The Archives Department at Ottawa, which deserves the gratitude of
every scholar and every Cunadiun,
has done a great deal to retrieve our

Saskatchewan's New Representative In
the Upper Chamber Has Spent
Thirty-Five Years on the Plains,
Where Among Other Things He Has
Done Good Work In Settling the
Claims of the Indian Tribes.
Hon. A. I., Forget, the new Senator
from the Province of Saskatchewan,
is a son of the late Jerimie Forget and
Mary Quenett-e, of Ma/ieville, where
he was horn in November, 1847. He
was educated at the College of Marie*
vi.le and later studied luw and was
c.lle-d to the Quebec Bar in 1871.
Iu 187ti he wus appointed Clerk of
the Council and private secretary to
Lieutenant-Governor Laird, whom he
nceomp'tnjed lo ('•» cp-tal of the ue.;
t>rganized territories of the northwest
at Battlefurd. Luter he became Clerk
of the Legislative Assembly at Regina,
the new capital of the Northwest Territories, and in 1885 he was appointed
a member of the commission to settle
tiie northwest half-breed claims. The
comparative immunity from troubles
with the Indians of the northwest Is
in no small measure due to the wisdom and tact of Mr. Forget, Besides
having a thorough knowledge of Indian character obtained through years
of contact and acquaintance with the
red men jI l.u- west, he ulso possesses
a spirit of li.ni.-ss and kindly consideration for the Nomads of the
plains tiiat trade them recognise in
him one ol their best frlend-i. He
wus appointed Lieutenunt-G »vernor of
the northwest in 1898 and Lieutenant-
Governor of Saskatchewan in 1906,
being the first Lieutenant-Governor of
thut province. There is no man in
Canada better informed regarding conditions in the west and hi3 elevation
to the Upper House will give to that
chamber a public man deeply versed
in the history of the west and fully
alive to its requirements and possibilities.
The King's Oldest Subject.
Mrs. Mary King, of Louth, Lincolnshire, claims to be the oldest subject
of King George. She is in her 105th
year, and is the oldest old age pensioner. Her sun and her sou's wife
are also old age pensioners, and tht
three reside in the same house. Tlu
old lady retains her faculties remarkably well, aud, says The Leader, when

being is "a condition of things which

The Tragedy of the Rabbit.
Judge Parry, whose pluy, "The Captain of the School," has been produced at the Gaiety Theatre, London, is
the only judge in the history of Great
Britain who has actually been shot in
his own court. This was in 1898, when
a disappointed bailiff, who was interested in a suit being tried, crept unobserved to the raised dais on which
Judge Parry sat, and fired three revolver shots, wounding the judge in
the chin and the throat. The judge,
who has several plays to his credit,
has a keen sense of humor, and one
of the stories he tells relates to a woman who was summoned before him
for non-payment of rent. "Why don't
you pay the money?" he asked her.
"Last Friday week, when I was cooking a rabbit " she began. "My good
woman," interrupted the judge, "never mind the rabbit, but tell me why
you didn't pay the rent." "I'm telling
you," retorted the woman, "if you
will only let me. Last Friday week
I was cooking a rabbit, when the soot
fell down and spoiled the rabbit; and
do you think I was going to pay rent
for that week?"
On another occasion, during the
hearing of a case in which a poor woman was concerned, Judge Parry announced that the trial would have to
be adjourned. "What does that
mean?" asked the woman. "Put ofl,"
replied the judge. "Oh! When till?"
Till next Monday." "Oh, I can't coma
on Monday," exclaimed the women,
indignantly; "Monday's my washing-
day. But 1 tell you what. You'd better come and see me, your honor.
That 'ud be much better than troubling uie to come to this 'ere court."

It Is surprising thu th i hand-woven
fabrics can still survive against the
productions of machtnery, but the Irish peasant understands how to dye
Ms hand woven cloths with lichens
and plants which give theni an inimitable effect, and their qualities of
durability and appearance give them
a distinct value.
The 'centres of hand-weaving and
spinning are in Donegal, Mayo, Com-
nemara, and Kerry,  where there la
make matters worse the change of life
followed, and although I was under
the care of one of our best doctors,
1 was steadily growing worse. Before
I was sick I had often read of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills, hut thought no
more nbout them. But now when I
was sick and helpless and almost
hopeless, and with no benefit coming
from medical treatment, I kept thinking of the Pills and finally decided to
try them. I did so and I am thankful to
abundant mountain grazing for sheep i be nble to say that they restored me
■with luxuriant wool and where labor ,to health and strength, and enabled me
fs superabundant. The leading centre
however is Donegal, and it ts estimated that $50,000 a year Is paid to
tlie peasants of the Impoverished and
barren districts of Donegal for the
homespun cloths. The cloth Is usually sold at country fairs, where it is
brought in large rolls of webs about
28 inches wide, as a loom of the nee-
to pass through that trying period,
from which so many poor women
emerge with shattered health. I hope
that many other poor sufferers may
read this statement and take fresh
courage from it, as I am sure that
what Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have
(lone for me, they will do for others.

A Styrian Peasant Superstition.
A lawsuit for libel tiruughi by an

apothecaries and doctors buve tbe
right to kill at lenst one man and one
woman every year In order to matte
medicines out of their bodies. An accidental movement of the apothecary
at Pbtlau, Herr Kobertnauser, when
giving medicine to a boy named i'utz

to be killed: He ran away, but got

Is Your Left Hand a Shirker
Most people never think what a
shirker the left hand ls. Our two
jeyes and our two eats and our two
jifeet divide their work equally^ or
'very nearly so. But the left hand on-
| ly works at whnt the riglit hand cannot do nlone. In Japan tlle children
are trained to use their hands and
i fingers more carefully thnn any where
else in tlie world. Japanese children
jean do and make things with their
! hands that are impossible to Western
boys and girls, and nearly all of the
Japanese, young antl old. can draw
'and write with both hands at once.
; We can do the same If we had been
i taught to do sc. In some schools
teachers are already training children
i to use both hands, and thus get doub-
ile service out of them for life. The
! pupil merely makes lines, at first
straight and curved ones, using both
hands at once. Wtth his right hand
he drawaa, perhaps curved lines parallel to one another, while with his
left hand he is drawing parallel
straight Unes, after a while he makes
loops and figures, and finally his left
hand becomes Just as good a worker
as his  riglit.

a distinct character. In North Donegal the cloth is heavy. Well-woven,
substantial, and generally dyed In
dark colors with stripes and checks.
The market for this is usually a retail
one. The products of Castlebar resemble those of North Donegal, but
are somewhat brighter in co!or. In
Coraneniarn and other pants of County
Galwuy there Is a peculiar sort of
flannel of very durable quality. It
in usually dyed in red, dark blue, or
black; and the Oalway peasant women present on odd but vividly pic-
itnresque appearance olad in hoods
and c oaks mado ot this peculiar material. The Kerry homespuns arc well
made, but poor In color and pattern,
vegetable dyes being seldom used.
In each of the cases whloh have
been mentioned the cloth Is produced
for local use, and only the overflow
roaches the outside market, but In
Soutli Donegal the case Is different,
as there is an extensive honisputu Industry there, carried on especlaly
for the wholesale market and con-
dueled upon business principles. Thero
is a hereditary talent for coloring tlie
cloths prevalent among the Donegal
peasantry, and the cloths which come
from this district are considered as
beautiful as any cither woollen fabric
produced iu Europe.. There are no
statistics available as to tlie importance of this Industry.
Hand knitting ls still able to compete against mechanical Imitations
and Is a means of livelihood to many
peasants lit the Isolated regions of the
country. The wild districts of Kln-
cass'bttgh, In County Donegal, Is an
Important centre. The Arran Industry of idayo produces some very tine

About the Strange People Who Putter

powen'ui and endowed wuh unlimited
knowledge, soya a London paper
His worship sees a very great deal
oi the seamy side erf life, but, tortun
att'Iy, his day's grim duty in relieved
by quaint touches of humor.
Many of the people tn the underworld, either ignorant ot the correct
way to address a magistrate, or awed
into contusion, maKe amusing mistakes on this point. They say, "Your
lordship." "Mister," or "Your honor."
Jlui nouody smiles; that sort oi uung
ia too frequent,
Apparently, many of the poorer folk
think lus worship has merely to rata*

A woman with Rery red hair stands
up iu court, eyes his worship, and
then pours out her troubles.
" 'Liza Awkins. which she live*
down our passage, calls arter me 'carrots,' youi* wo amp, 1 says notliin',
'ceptln' scratch 'or flee, and now she's

"Well, what dt) you expect me to
do?" asks the busy magistrate wearily.
"A summons. s:r," she replies,
Even it he had time*to argue with
her, it would take a long time to convince the lady with the red hair that
ho has no power whatever to adjust aii
the lovers quarrel., m London. Jealousy is at the root of a great many ol
these applications.
In many cases the services of that
Admirable Crichton, the warrant-olll.
ecr, are utilized. Without a piece of
blue paper iu his hand, he goes round
and explains delicately that official
notice has been taken oi the situation.
In nine cases out of ten his influence
produces a remedy—-at any rate, for
ine time.
Sometimes a burly navvy comes to
court with u pitiful tale to the eflect
that his wife positively ret uses to
unlock ths door of his home when hs
returns from work. Again tho warrant officer is instructed to adjust matters, and generally he manages to put
the domestic differences on a more satisfactory fooling.
Generally the applicants have not
the remotest notion on what legal
grounds they can obtain the issue of
a summons; but stipendiaries, as a
rule, exercise oil their patience in en-
ueavormg to help tue people who feel
thoy have a grievance.
"-Please, sir, 1 want a divorce," or,
"So-and-So owes me tive shillings, and
won't pay it back," are very common
examples of applications, which show*
Uint the applicants do not know the
difference between one court and another.
"Will you, please send somebody
round to give my son a good hiding,
as I can't do Hi'" wus one woman *
notable request. The magistrate sent
the ever-useful warrant oilicer to inspire fear in tlte heart of the unruly
youngster, though not in tlie method
suggested by his mother.
These are but typical instances ot
the extraordinary puzzles which confront a magistrate daily, and many ol
the application? have no connection
whatever with the law. The people
want advice, and having nobody in
the whole world to turn to, they steo
into court and expect his worship to
take part ol life's ourden from tiiem.

Prospects for the success of the
Good 1 toads convention which is to
bo held in New Westminster on Sow
3 and 4 are most encouraging, nnd
that the meetings will have an important bearing on the movement
for the improvement of existing
roads and the building of new highways is now assured.
In addition to the representative
members of the Pacific Highway association who will make the trip ol
the Royal city for the purpose of
taking part tn the convention. a
large m i uber of men who are i bow
ing their interest ia tbe movement
for tbe llrst time will also be present. Delegatus [rom boards of trade

Much of the preliminary work in
connection with the holding of this
Convention     is    being done by  W.   .1,
Ken,   first     vice-president   of   the
Westminster Automobile Club. Mr,

An invitation to attend tbe Westminister convention has been extended to P. K, Hands, of Seattle, who
successfully drove the first automobile that ever traversed the wilds of
northern Hritish Columbia, making
the journey from Seattle to Hassle-
ton (1282 miles) In a little over
three weeks. Sands bas been asked
to- bring his pathfinding car to Westminster so that the Highway enthusiasts may judgo ot the Btate of the

son River wbb named, and who first
mapped (1813-1814), from notes supplied by John Stuart, the course of
the Praser River, ate the property of
the Government of Ontario. An effort should be made to procure transcripts of such portions of them
dealing with his explorations In the
Kootenays. The cordial co-operation
of the Archivist of that Province haB
already been promised, and it is hoped that certified copies of ths documents may be obtained in the ' near
But, apart from these sources,
which may be termed "official" and
of which we may have some knowledge, are the many long-forgotten documents scattered in odd corners and
out-of-the-way-places where they are
reposing until such time as they may
he rescued from an unobserved oblivion. Reference Is made to family
records, to the rich mass of material belonging to various private collectors, to the papers which bave fallen Into the hands of people little interested ln their contents, yet who
in some instances value tbem highly
—to the many places, in short, where
odds and ends of documentary evidence, by accident or design, may be
stored away. By no means without
Interest, in fact of high Interest, to
the historian would these scattered
documents be, provided that they
were gathered together and arranged,
for they would all throw light, either
more or less, upon the ovents recorded in tbe documents which may be
termed "official,"
From the foregoing It will be
gathered that archives may be divided roughly into two classes—official
and unofficial—the "ofnclal" complementing and supplementing the "unofficial," both heing Indispensable to
the student.
While it is true that no adequate
history can be written without the
aid of official documents, which are,
and always must be, the backbone,
as It were, of the narrative historical, yet the material of the second
clasB must enter largely into thc composition of national chronicles, and
for the reason that it emhrnceR the
documents called, for lack of a better term, "human." The private
letter, the diary, the memoir, the
journal, and the reminiscence, with
all their varied ond rich Blde-lights
upon men and events, cannot be neglected if close adherence to truth ls
dsslred. A thorough understanding
of the motives that lay behind and
prompted actions and movements,
motlveB which not always have been
acknowledged publicly, may only be
reached after a conBClentlous examination of all sources of information.
In matters historical, tbe public is
not,   as   a   rule, so much concerned
with what has taken place behind the
scenes as upon the stage itself, for
without such knowledge it is not possible adequately to represent the past
or to characterize truly tbe men who
have played important parts in national life. The official document,
then, must be interpreted, not always but often, ln the light of the
private, unofficial, or secret document.
Of the hostoric events affecting the
territory of British Columbia, the
most Important were the "Nootka
Affair" and the Oregon Boundary
Quostlon. In 1789 the celebrated
"Nootka Affair" focussed the attention of the civlised world upon a remote and hitherto unknown region,
and for the first time it loomed
large in the sphere of international
politics; and in after years the Oregon Boundary dispute assumed serious proportions. TheBe matters
were of international concern and
each for a time threatened to provoke war between Powerful countries.
Naturally enough, controversies
which were conducted with much blt-
ternesB on both sides were productive
of a more or lesB voluninous literature, all of which did not find ita
way Into print. The unpublished
ofliclal papers relating to these events must be extremely interesting,
and particularly so to one engaged
ln tracing the course of the affairs
and occurrences which are tbe warp
and woof of North-western history.
Both thc "Nootka Affair" and the
Oregon Boundary Question played a
significant part in the shaping ot
the destinies of the regions they directly affected.
As the Nootka Convention, arising
from the seizure hy the Spaniards, in
Nootka Sound In 1789, of certain
vessels, the property of British merchants, marked the decline and fall
of Spanish sovereignty ou the northwest coast of North America, so tho
establishment of the present boundary-line between the British possessions and the United States of America hy the terms of the Oregon Treaty, signed on June 15th, 1846.
marked the termination of the long
and bitter controversy between Great.
Britain and the American Republic
touching the territories each were to
havo and to hold In ths western portion of the continent—a controversy
which hnd extended over a period of
twenty-eight years—and presaged' tie'
decllno and fall of the fur trade. It:
would be well, Indeed, that all th»
documentary evidence bearing upon
these exceedingly Important discussions should be In tho possobrIoh of
the Department, as It would help to
elucidate ard explain things not
without Interest even at tbts late
It Is Interesting to note, lo passing, tbat few unsettled regions have
been the subject of or aflected by,
so many treaties, charters, and
grants as the territories now united
in the Province of British Columbia.
In fact, during a period of seventy
years, beginning witb tbe signing of
the Nootka Convention In 1790, a
decade did not pass without the ratification of one or more far-reaching
pacts or agreements affecting In one
way or another the future of this
While the history of British Columbia proper may be said to commence
with the founding of the Colony of
Vancouver Island a thorough understanding of tbe several matters and
events leading up to the establishment ot a settled form of government in a land hitherto, to all intents and purposes, beyond tbe pale
of the law, is of supreme importance,
aa Instanced by the Alaska Boundary
Dispute and other subjects of'greater
or lesser moment. In this connection we should not lose sight of the
fact that, comparatively speaking,
it is only in recent times that British Columbia has enjoyed a separate and distinct Identity. The Oregon Treaty was not ratified tiitll
1846; the Colony of Vancouver Island
was not formed until 1819; the
Orown Colony of British Columbia
did not come into heing until 1858.
Before the year 1846, then, that portion of the Paciflc seaboard stretching from tbe northern confines of
California to the Russian possessions
in Alaska may be said to have had a
common history. The records of
that period of indefinable jurisdictions and International complications
aro replete with interest, and it may
he added that no adequate, history ot
those trouMed years has ever been
written, for the good and substantial
reason that the necessary particulars
have never heen available.
The consideration of the early documents naturally brings within, vlow
the methods of the fur-trading organizations whose Inst great. field
lay to the west of the Stony, Shln-
tlng, or Rocky Mountains, end whoso
hlBtory for many yenrs was the history of the tar-exten.Ung territories
which they had brought under their
sway with such Indomitable courage
and unparalleled success in the face
of unnumbered hardships nnd prlva-
! tlons. The North-west Fur-trading
Compnny of Montreal, organized under the daring leadership of Joseph
Frobishor and Simon McTavlsh, tho
Adventurers of England trading Into
Hudson Ilay, and, for n hrlof space,
tho Pacific Fur Comnnnv, of which
the Intrepid nnd fnr-atgbted John
Jacob ABtor of New York, was the
moving spirit and chief director, all
exerted ft powerful Ind'once In and
over tho Oregon Territory, tho limits of whlcb, never clenrlv deflne'l,
roughly may he said to have Included the whole oT thnt Immense domain
extending from California far Into
what Is now thn Province of Irltlsh
Columbia, taking In a large nart of
New Caledonia, so named hy Simon
Fraser. The Americans, it will be
recalled, claimed at one time tha
whole region lying between the forty-
second parallel of latitude and fJty-
four-forty, a claim never admitted
by tho British. The brief and singularly unfortunate rule of the American company lasted only from the
founding of Astoria, at the mouth of
the Columbia River, in 1811, until
1813, when the North-west company
acquired by purchase the property
and interests ot the concern, a matter touching which bitter things were
said by Mr. Astor, who, it is said,
believed that he had been betrayed
by his agents. After that historic
transaction the North-west Company
held the retnB of power, but Its supremacy also was of but short duration.
In' 1821, that company, as a result
of the ruinous competition and fierce
rivalries of the forces arrayed against each other in that bitter and ever-
memorable struggle for the control of
the fur trade, joined hands with its
powerful opponent, the Hudson Bay
company, an alliance directly
brought about .by bloody feuds and
the depletion of the fur preserves.
The interests of the two concerns,
indeed, demanded a cessation of hostilities. From 1822 to 1846, ' the
Hudson's Bay Company exercised supreme authority over the whole of
thc territory known In early days as
the "Western Department" which the
genius of a McLoughlin consolidated
and welded into a fur empire, the
like of which had never been seen before and as certainly will never be
witnessed again. In the period
mentioned that wonderful organization reached the height ot its power
and Influence.
Tbe operations of the North-west
Company in the west bave a peculiar
interest for us, Inasmuch as it was
the intrepid "bourgeois" of that
splendidly officered and organized
association of "free-traders" who
first established permanent posts In
the land. The first were erected in
1805 on thc shores ot Lake McLeod
(the outlet of which Is a tributary
ot the Parsnip River) by James Mc-
Dougall, who had preceded Simon
Fraser by a tew months. From the'
year mentioned, without a break,
Fort McLeod has heen tho headquarters of the fur trade of thnt particular region. The famous triumvirate,
Alexander Mackenzie, David Thompson, and Simon Frnser, were all
"Nor'westerB" as also wore John
Stuart, Harmon, McDougall, and
others who were prominent In New
Caledonia In early days.
Tho period of fur-trading activity
nnd exploration In the interior commenced with the yuar 1793 and lusted until the abrogation by tho Imperial government of the grant of
Vancouver Islnnd to the Hudson's
Day Company in 1858. Ot the conspicuous events of that period mny
lie mentioned, Hir Alexander Mackenzie's famous reconnaissance; the exploration of tbe Oolumbla River    hy
Captains Lewis and Clark; tho commencement of operations by the
North-west company; tbe exploration
of tbe Fraser River by Simon Eraser

Company; the absorption of the

For full and authentic information
respecting the far-reaching ramifications of the wonderlul system whereby the peltries of the fur-bearing
animals wsre regularly gathered In a
territory the area of which exceeded
that ol the Roman Empire In the
days of its highest power, we must
tun to the manuscript letters and
journals of the "bourgeois" of the
North-west company and the chief
factors, chief traders, and lesser officers of the Hudson's Bay Company,
and for matters of general policy to
the records preserved at headquarters
The letter and minute books of the
Hudson's Bay Company during the
acute and final stages of thc Oregon
Boundary dispute must contain certain valuable data respecting thnt
much-discussed question.
All ot these sources must be drawn
upon if thc Department is to render
the service for which it hns boen established. In gathering together,
classifying, and cataloguing the manuscripts now scattered broadcast, or
! hlddon nway, the Department will
find ample scope for its energies for
many years to come. Thc future ro
putatlon ot tho office, In fnct, will
rest largely upon the mnnner In
which this important work Is curried
out. Here sliould bo available for
the student all of the unpublished
manuscripts, or copleH ot thorn,
throwing light upon the rust. It
should he possible for a year or two
for the historian to find in this office the fullest Information respect
ing the unpublished sources of any
phase ot our history. Without such
data we must remain more or Ii-hs
In the dark as to many events   and
transactions which exerted a wide
and compelling Influence in years
gone by. And in this connection lt
may be observed that the systematic
classification and cataloguing of the
material is a most important matter
because its usefulness must ot necessity depend upon its availability.
It bas been tbc endeavor of tbe
writer, in making these brief observations, to show as clearly as possible
why it is important that particulars
of the fur-trading and coloninl periods Bhould he gathered and made
In view of thc foregoing It is very
respectfully recommended : -

and British Columbia, particularly |

trovcrsics   of   thc "Nootka Affair"
and the Oregon Boundary Question,
sbould he procured from the Colon- i
ial Offlce, the Public Records Office, J
and tbe Admiralty :
2. That an especial effort should I

es of the Hudson's Bay Company j
copies of all records relating to the I
exploits of the North-west Fur-'
trading Company of Montreal to |
the west of    the Hocky Mountains i
. (the two companies were amalgamated in 1821 under the name of
the older concern) nnd the work
of the Adventurers of England in
tho Oregon Territory, New Caledonia, the Colony of Vancouver Is-1
land, Alaska, and California—in j
fact, to all tbeir operations west
of the Rockies :
8. That transcripts of the Spanish and RiiBslan documents relating
to this coast should he obtained
from the Archives ot the Indies at
Seville and the Archives ot 8t.

4. That the Dominion nnd Pro- ;

9.   That the aid ot tbe Provincial

Now about hats for fall. They are
the most absurd contrivances you ever

"sugar loaf." "steeple crown" and
"Pierrot cap." All tbat Is needed Is s
perfectly resistless mass of hair, sans
rats, curls and puffs, over wblch to
pull these chnpenus. nnd with a tip of
your nose displayed to public gaze
you'll be correctly hatted. Oh. yes; I
forgot to say ihat the hair Is arranged
over the ears to conform to the Egyptian styles in millinery. A witty fash
iou writer says that women will not
need hatpins next winter, but shoe

there Is uo doubt, as the sensational

Presentation to Sir William Whyte
Winnipeg, Oct. 24.—Sir Willium
Whyte, retiring vice-president of tho
Canadian Pacific, was the guest of
honor this afternoon at the Uoyal
Alexandra hotel, at it banquet tendered by the western officials D( ' the
road, over one hundred and twenty-
live being ln attendance, including also about forty former officials of the
Sir William was the recipient of a
splendid silver service, including a
monster silver punch bowl. The health of the gueat of honor was proposed by his successor, tieorge Bury,
and the presentation address was delivered by P. W. Peters. Thc reply
of Sir William Whyte was brief,
characteristic and full of feeling, telling of the pleasant relations that
always existed with his position.
Those present were :
A. Price the general superintendent
at Calgary; F. R. Busteed, general
superintendent at Vancouver, and J.
J. Scully, general superintendent nt
Moose Jaw; H. W. Drodie, Vancouver; Oeorge B. Graham, superintendent at Vancouver; It. A. Payne, master mechanic at Calgary; W. o. Miller, superintendent at Nelson; K. W.

Armstrong, superintendent of terminals, Fort William; J. Brownlee, superintendent at Kenora; J. R. Proctor, district passenger agent, Brandon.
A fitting climax to Sir William
Whyte's 49 yeara ot railway service
was the banqvut Ui.dered him last
evening at Winnipeg by the officials
of the western lines of the Canadian
Pacific railway, a company which he
has been connected with for nearly 30
years and with which he will still be
associated as a director. Probably no
man who has ever heen connected
with railway work in Canada haa understood the west and its requirements as did Mr. Whyte and the result is seen in the company's policy
during the quarter of a century that
he has directed, or to a large extent
directed, its affairs this aide of the
great lakes.
Apart from his great native ability, his kindliness of heart and bis
great fairness in dealing with all
matters which came before him, perhaps the greatest factor which contributed to Sir William's success
was the fact that he was a practical
railway man. He knew the work
at tbe lirst hand in the cun.se of his
rise to the important position which
he now holds as a director of the
greatest railway system in the world
Sir William began his career as a
station agent on the West of Fife
railway in Scotland, the land of hiB
birth, in 1862, and since then has
been engaged in it continuously. He
came to Canada the following year
and immediately secured employment
on the Grand Trunk railway as brake
man. It is not necessary to trace
his rise step hy step in the Grand
Trunk's service to the position of
assistant superintendent of the central division of the company's system, his territory extending from
Kingston through western Ontario.
He left the Grand Trunk to become
general superintendent of the Credit
Valley railway, from which position
he stepped to that of general superintendent of the Ontario and Eastern
divisions of the Canadian Paciflc
railway in 1884, since when he haB
been continuously with that company
Tn 1886, on the completion of the line
from Montreal to the Pacific coaBt,
he was transferred to Winnipeg as
general manager of the Canadian
Pacific in the west. His next promotion came in 1907 when he was
made manager of the company's lines
in the west. This was followed by
another four years later, when he assumed the duties of assistant to the
president with headquarters in Winnipeg. Three years later he was
made vice-president with complete
charge of all the company's affairs
between lake Superior and the Pacific coast. From the duties of tbis
position he is now retiring and in
doing so has been honored with a
seat on the company's directorate,
where be will continue to advise on
western affairs.—Nelson News.

Mrs. R. L. Borden, wife ol Canada's new premier, has been one ol
the most gracious and charming hostesses ot Halifax. The excellent tennis courts and lawns at Pinehurst
are frequently gay with guests in the
summer time, "when the ships are
in" and Halifax's season has begun.
For Mrs. Dorden's entertainments in
Halifax usually take the form of
garden parties, and they are always
anticipated by her friends. There,
as in Ottawa, during the session,
Mrs. Borden moves among her guests
with the charming tact that la one
of her most marked characteristics.
Cheery and at ease, yet earnestly
solicitous for every detail of her
guests' comforts thc petite chatelaine
makes a winsome picture, gowned as
she usually is ln artistically simple-
gown of soft gray or cream, with
mostly a touch of rose in the trimmings. To one ordinary form of entertainment-even the hackneyed Afternoon tea—Mrs. Borden lias lent Uie
distinction of a unique and pleasing
purpose. Her quick sympathies soon
perceived at Ottawa tbe loneliness of
the wives and daughters of the legislators there each session. Coming
from homes so widely separated, to
an official sphere that must always
be more or less formal, these ladies
Inevitably miss the friendly social
circles of their own cities or villages.
To banish tho constraint of the newcomer and to introduce congenial
people Mrs. Borden's Friday afternoon teas were instituted. There Is
nothing of tbe flavor of officialdom
about them; tbey are designed in
womanly sympathy to bring together
the sessional visitors and residents
of the capital, and their object is
happily attained. In the wider field
of philanthropy Mrs. Borden haB
also been active. With the Hon.
Mrs. Montgomery-Moore she organized the Aberdeen Association in Nova
Scotia, and is still president ot the
Halifax branch of that work. She
is vice-president of the Canadian
National Council of Women in Nova
Scotia and president of the Women's
Work Exchange. In this last, as in
her earliest charitable missions, Mrs.
Borden endeavors to alleviate the
hardships so often uncomplainingly
endured by the gentlefolk. Her in-
messing duties as a social leader
have never been permitted by Mrs.
Borden to interfere with her devotion to her husband, and her deep
interest in bis work. These trails
have been more strongly developed
perhaps by the fact that they Iiuve
no children in their home. Animated,
yet sympathetic, with a remarkable
supply of energy and a line stratum
of earnestness In her character, Ml
Borden makes an excellent helpmeet
for the serious, kindly statesman
who Is the leader of Ills party
Mall and Empire.

Province  After  Province Lost to the Manchus—Imperialists Fiee For Protection to Foreign
Shanghai, China, Oct. 25.—The
capture of Chan-chou by the revolutionists was announced In dispatch
es which reached this city shortly
after noon today. From a strategic
point of view this city should prove
of great value to the rebels. It is
the junction of the Kai-fm^ and Pe-
kin-Hankow railroads and is located
tw0 hundred and fifty miles north uf
Hankow. Its capture apparently
cuts od from Pekin the imperial
troops now gathered around Hankow
and Wu-chan.
Today's news from the lower Yang-
tse valley was all discouraging to
the government. With Kiu-kuant; in
the undisputed possession of the' rebels tho imperial (.pet has retreated
down the river, some of the vessels
being reported as far wastward as
Wu-hu. Conditions are ominous not
only In Wu-hu but also in Nanking.
Most of the Manchu olllcials have
left these two cltieB and are crowding into Shanghai, where every hotel
h>> already filled with refugees.
Thotno-tai of Shanghai  today   be.
came so alarmed over the possibility
of secession of the native city to
the rebels that he removed his household to the foreign settlement. The
tao-tai of Nanking has also put himself under the same protection.
Tbe city of Su-chow is in a panic
owingto the revolutionary threats of
lifty thousand weavers whose uages
have heen unpaid for a long time,
^evolutionary agents here announce
that thi; in-;urKents expect to ostab-
llsh their headquarters at Ktu-kiam

A poor foreign musician was doggedly wrestling with his trombone
outside a village inn. He knew 'Tlie
Lost Chord' was somewhere In that
Instrument, hut the latter seemed
loth to part with it. At length thc
landlord appeared at thc door. The
poor musician bowed and, dofling tils
cap, said: "Miiuii* hath jarins," and
smiled. The inn-keeper smiled also,
and kindly. "Well, not always," he
said, but try that tune outside tho
red brick bouse and I'll give you sixpence." Three minutes later the
trombonist was back ugnln, mud-bespattered and forlorn. "You vos
right," he said slowly and sadly.
Muslg hath jarms not always—no. A
mad vellow of dat house came und
mc mlt a brlgg ho knocked down-

Some know it, and some don't; but

They will have to work hard if they

This is the way Mrs. Simpson-
Hayes talks of ber work at the Canadian Pacific Railway Offices. As
says of herself, she 1b an enthusiast, and she adds an enthusiast's
glow to her account of tho land she
loves. But when one hears the
story of her thirty years' life in Canada, and the struggles of pioneering whlcb she has survived In common witb others ot tho properly fit,
one admits that she must bave some
justification for the warmth with
which she preaches her crusade, or
she would not still be tbat enthusiast.
She ia "downright." She does not
say simply "Go to Canada which
you'll see outside on tbe picture-
posters, and get rich I" She says:
"Come with tne, and I'll take you
to the New Towns, and I'll put you
personally in the positions I'm promising you. Are you a lady teacher ? Let me take you to a place
where you can keep Bchool on your
English certiltcato for six months.
You'll get £8 a month while you're
at it. You can get it, not 'some
time' or 'in the future,' hut today.
After six months you'll bave to
qualify for local certilicates, but If
you can't do that you are no good.
"And I'm not going to take any
women who are no good, who are not
prepared to work. Among the numbers who have seen me already have
been several whom I have advised to
stay here at home.
"I hope to take back 5,000 with
me," said Mrs. Simpson-Hayes, in
a voice that meant tbat sbe certainly would—If lt were to be done.
"The new towns are calling out for
them—dress makers, nurses, governesses, domestic servants (particularly these last). We want tbem to do
the work which is going undone (or
want ot hands; and we want them
to become the mothers of a British
race In Canada. We can't get enough
English women out there. A young
married couple, for Instance, go out
to settle, and take with them a domestic servant. But, bless you, that
lingle young woman is married before she's heen west half a day. Then
there are two people wanting servants; and the next year—it's a
health country—they both want nurses, and soon afterwards both want
"It is not a matter of settling
Canada," added Mrs. Slinpson-Ilayos
She is a thorough Briton and speaks
with a lull heart of keeping Canada,
lor tho British race. "Between April
and September Inst year," sho iinld,
"97,600 settlers from morely tho adjoining provinces of tho United States poured into the waiting west.
That's not from all over the States,

Last year the Americans who immigrated into Canada brought £20,-

these are official figures. For the
years since 1900, 43 per cent, ot thc
Canadian immigrants have been from j

"In the west the Chinese and Japanese, too, are doing the work and
making the money that ought to be
done and made by the British. Have
we pioneers from the old country for
two or three generations gone through all the struggles and done    all

hand of the United States, peacefully   and   naturally,    and my British

it.     The   Americans   deserve   their
success, for they realized what Can- \
ada   was   before   thc English home
people did; but   we did the   pioneer
work,   and   the   enjoyment   of   the;
prosperity ought to he oirs."
The   account   Mrs. Simpson-Hayes
gives of the growth of Western Can- i
ada is   wonderful.     New   towns are
springing up at the rate of about six j
a day.     Winnipeg began only thirty 1
years ago, and today it is a city of
200,000      inhabitants.       Millionaires j
have been made over and over again i
by tbe simple process of buying     a
piece of land and holding it for    so
many months.
It Ib not open to everyone to
this, of course, though people
Btill doing it. Mrs. SlmpBon-Hayea
has done it herself, In a small way.
She has done herself also the same
work she is now preaching to Eng- i
llsh women at home, and In much
rougher circumstances. She sold 1
tape, washed clothes, scrubbed floors
and built fences when she first weut
out to a life that demanded this
work and grit before giving any promise of reward. She learned how
to do business; she lenrned newspaper work. She dines now with the
biggest men in the land when she
travels anywhere between Quebec
and Vancouver. She is *.ne of the
three best paid lady Journalists in
Canada; and she takes just pride In
being the first published writer of
stories in the west.

The way to build up a community
ls lor every person in it, who cnn,
to put some money into industries
that give the people employment and
push the industries to success. Industries that laBt all the year round are
the best; but those that last part of
the year are better than none. The
most valuable power on earth is human power, but when it iB not employed It ls not only lost but lt also
consumes part of what others earn.
Work creates wealth; work sets
money in motion; work pays debts;
work is the vital power in prosperity
and that city, that community, and
that nation whoso people are Idle,
are poor, and poor in proportion to
the number that work. Heaven's
greatest earthly blessing to any people Is to give them honest, remunerative work.
