Hostilities are Inevitable
New York, .July 31— Jumes F J.
Archibald,    war correspondent,   whu
hun seen Herviee with twenty armies
nml cun speak with authority cm military equipment arrived today from
Europe anil declared that undoubtedly there would he war btfiweeu Prance
nnd Germany. His views nre pro-
"My belief thut there will lie war,"
said Mr. Archibald," ia based upon
the fact that (Jermany cannot hack
out from her position, even tlnmich
it iM not a righteous one, without
tin* government losing its prestage
at home. This the kaiser must avoid
nt ull costs. Germany must either
back down completely for the French
people will not countenance a grant
of territory in Africa to (Jermany,
ui else she must fight Franco. Franco
is well prepared for war. She has
nearly the finest military organisation in t'he world. She is fur ahead
of any other nation in her artillery
i-iuipment, nnd also in her aeroplanes
It will iw? practically th'-J first aeroplane war. The war, if it, comes to
tlmt will he fought on the frontier.
France will protect her shores with
submarines and neroplnncs. Germany
has stuck to her dirigibles, and these
are not nearly us serviceable in times
of war as are aeroplanes. (Ine thing
1 found was that thc outside world
knows nothing of the secret, aero
(lights tlmt occur every duy in different parts of France, when trained
experts are sent on live minute notice
to different parts without tuning up
or waiting for favorable nir currents. I telt you France is n wonder
today, and she is in excellent condition to get her revenge on Germany.
Hor nrmy in Africa is perfect. and
the esprit de corps in the entire army
is splendid.

Cruiser Niobe's Bad
Halifax, N. S., July 30—The protected cruiser Niobe, flagship of the
Canadian navy was saved to the Dominion's young sea strength after being impaled for five hours on the
southwest ledges of Gape Sable early
today. Her hull was pierced in several places, the starboard engine
room swamped with water and other
compartments Hooded. No lives were
The exact means ot the relief of the
Niobe nre not known here, but it is
supposed she flouts on a rising tide.
Commander McDonald unehored the
Niobe in a nafe position some distance from the scene- af the mishap
awaiting the arrival of the government steamers Lady Laurier and
Stanley, which were dispatched to
her assistance early this morning
from St. John.
The cause of the accident is not
known, but a fog enshrouded the
coast, and it is thought there was a
gale blowing.
Sixteen meu of the crew who left
thc cruiser in two boats were the
cause of much anxiety for hours after the accident, ns they were lost
in the fog nnd at the mercy of the
gale and strong tide which It was
feared would wreck them on oue of
the many ledges ubout. Oape Halite.
It was learned by wireless tonight
that all have rejoined their ship.
They went back to lhe cruiser In one
boat, the other apparently having
been wrecked.
Ho extreme was the plight nf the
Niobe when Ilie ship first, grounded
that Gommnndor McDonald ordered
nil boats cleared away, ready for
abandonment of thfl vossol If necessary. Tlie two Imiits which were lost
for a time with tholr crews were tlie

heavy nH to drive her hard upon the
pinnacle or the rock, and to amuse
every man on board.

One of the holes in the Niobe is said
to he 25 feet long and 10 feet wide.
One hundred and ninety boys and
recruits were disembarked from the
cruiser today ami forwarded to Halifax. The reason given by Admiral
Kingsmill for this is that they were
only in the way and that as no training wns going on it was better for
them to be ashore, thus leaving the
petty officers free for other duty. Tbe
crew is still aboard. Clark's harbor
j is twelve miles from tlie southwest
ledges where tbe Niobe struck. Admiral Kingsmill who commands the
Canadian navy and who arrived from
Ottawa last night, was seen this evening. He paid a warm compliment to
the discipline on board tho Niobe
when she was ashore on the southwest ledges.
"The discipline on board the Niobe
by the boys and young recruits,"
Admiral Kingsmill observed, "was
everything that one could wish. With
the ship's position whut it was, n
gale blowing and a dense fog, the
Canadian hoys behaved fully up to
the traditions of the Ilritish navy.
Thc discipline left nothing to bo desired.   Of course the ship's crew and
Taft Again
On Horns of Serious Dilemma
On Tariffs
Washington, D, 0., August 2—Now
that the senate has passed both of
the tariff reduction measures sent
over by the Democratic house, and it
is only a matter of a few days when
president Taft will have to sign or
veto them, the charge is being Openly made that Taft scoured the ratification of the Canadian agreement
by making a bargain with Senator
Penrose, chairman of the finance committee, to veto all other tarlll legislation at this session of the congress.
It was apparent to every one thnt
at thc beginning of the reciprocity
controversy in the Senate Taft did
not command onough votes to pass
the bill. Penrose saw his chance. He
told Taft that his support was necessary to paBS the bill and that his
price was a promise that there would
be no other tariff legislation at this
session. Taft, eager to recoup his
fast declining political fortunes,
agreed to the proposal.
What everyone wants to know today is whether Taft will consider the
promise binding in the light of thc
big majority by which the wool and
farmer's free list measures passed the
"If Taft signs these bills," said
Representative Oscar W. Underwood,
of Alahnmfl, (Democrat), chairman
of the ways and means committee
today, "the Republican party is gone.
If he vetoes them he is gone."
Sydney Site at Naval Dockyard
Ottawa, June 14—The bulk, if   not
all of the tirst butch of ships for the
I Canadian navy, will be constructed at
Sydney,   This may he taken as auth-
; entie.    Such was tbe rather interesting statement   made   today   by   the
gentleman  wbo  interested  Sir  Henry ,
M. 1'ellatt in the matter and who is
i in  close    touch   with   the situation.
[The company of which Sir Henry   is
chairman,  will  get the contract   for
the hulk of the ships at least.   This
had  practically  been  decided  on   by
the   nnval   department as the     com-
I pony's tender was the loRest of tbe
j lot.    British   concerns affiliated  with
I Sir Henry in the enterprise, the Pair
[Held Shipbuilding Go., and the Clyde-
i bank Shipbuilding Co., are now pre
' [taring to   send   engineers aud equipment to Sydney and it was expected
that   construction   of a shipbuilding
yard would be commenced before full.
A    definite   announcement   regarding
contracts   will likely be made on the
reassembling of parliament.

At tbis moment a pistol shot sounded outside,  very  near  to the sqinre

upon any oue wbn should attempt to
go out of the square lower.   Kdltb ut-
, tered a cry und tri.-d to run oat of the
room, but Rouletubllle,  who nad not

i witb a word.
"If any one hail drawn upon bim,"
he said, "the three men  would  have
Ured together.    Tbat pistol shot wus
merely a signal—a direction for me to
I begin."
Turning to tne. he continued:
•fd. Salnclalr, you ought to know
that t never suspect any person or
anything without previously having
satisfied myself upon the "ground of
pure reason.' l.arsan Is here among

take your eyes from me, fur I am go
ing to begin oil this paper the corporeal demonstration ot tbe possibility- of 'tbe body too many.'"

sure tbat the bolts ot itie door behind

best of his belief, it was the same
paint which he nad mixed for his

A good half of the paint had dried
up in tbe bottom or tbe dish: but, according tu tbe opluloti expressed by
M. Durzac, the part which remained
would upon paper give ueurly tbe

Besides, you will see l but a tear more

Thus saying, he dipped ibe brush In

When he bad liuisbed be looked at
his watch and .said:
"Vou may see, ladies and gentlemen,

One thing wus certuln-the bracelet

A week passed and nothing bad been

one dny an anouynious note In an evl

"On Wednesday, tbe 7lb of June Inst,

While Judge Griffiths was sitting on
the bench-be had Just pronounced
seuteuee ou a criminal—a hurry call
came over the telephone for bim to
come lioiue at ouce. Ue Immediately
adjourned Ihe court and, culling u cab,
drove to bis residence. Hastily entering, he found his luiully lu u most distressing situation. Tbe houso wus in
the bauds ot ottlcers of tbe luw, wbo
bud iu their possession tbe tdeutlcal
ruby eyed bracelet he bad thought ot
buying for his daughter's birthday

Tbut some of the coostnbles recognized a Judge ot the criminal court

them in a carriage lo court, ber father
uci'ninpnnytng her. wbere s charge of

father gave null for her appearance
for trial, and site relumed wllb bim

A mystery loomed up before Judge
Griffiths Nol for a momeul did ne
suspect tbat bis daughter was guilty
of theft What puzzled bim was that
he bud examined this very bracelet
wltb n view to buying It He was
sure that he could not bave taken It
from lhe store by mistake. And It be
bad doue so now could It have come

Heavy Cluny Lau on Hats la Smart
and Pretty.
Following the lines of tbe fashions
for tbeir mothers and older slaters,
the clothes for the little folks shown
in Purls have new and pretty applications of bands on tbe short skirts of
both dresses and coats, heightened
waist lines and a tendency to greater
simplicity In trimming.
Probably one of the newest features
of fashion for the young people is the
use of heavy cluny lace on the bats,
coats and dresses, lt is a charming
luce combined with heavy or sheer
quality linens for dresses for all the
year around wear and will take the
place of embroidery in trimming silk
or cloth couts.
As u garniture for children's hats
there Is nothing quite so appropriate
as cluny or fillet lace, which belongs
to the same family of laces. It bas a
heavy, substantial look and yet Is light
In weight and youug looking. Often
a piece of cluny edging or Insertion
forms the entire brim of au adorable
poke bonnet, while the crown is a
huge stiff appearing baker's shape In
black velvet
It Is a new and pretty idea to use
clusters of these tiny roses in scatterings over the upper brim of a child's
hat, or oue will be fouud pressed closely to tbe underbrlm at the side to
give a guy bit of color to tbe face.
To be sure, bows are still used on
the hats. The newest ones for satin
and velvet bats ure made of white
suede Md, which are also used much
for older folks' hats tbis year. This,
too, Is an economical Idea, as one cnn
send the hat to tbe cleaner's or freshen It at borne with benzine, whereas
white silk and satin ribbons would
have to be discarded as soon as soiled. It Is used also for the crowns and
as an upper brim facing on the severer types of bats for school or everyday wear, but It is not suitable for a
frilly lace or fancifully trimmed style.
Bluck satin and velvet are having
an unusual vogue for children's couts
as well as huts, and lt Is delightfully
old fashioned and quaint looking nud
bas a tendency to add to their youth and
bnbyisbness rather than age tbem, as
one would be inclined to think about
these materluls. A charming little
coat of black velvet was made with
tbe body portion uud coat in one piece
and seamed at the underarm and
sleeves. The shoulders and sleeves
huug wltb fullness and were drawn on
two heavy cords from the neck across
tbe shoulders to tbe sleeve euds.   The

The brand of "S" figures in an ex

Any able-bodied man or woman found
loitering und not seeking work for
the space of three days could be seized and brought before two justices of

be marked with a hot iron ' the
breast the mark 'V and adjudge the
said person living ao idly to his presenter, to be his slave for two year**.
The said slave shall be made to work
by beating, chaining, or otherwise."
It convicted of running away during
this period, the justices could cause
him to be branded on the forehead or
the cheek with the letter "fi" and tben
adjudged tu his master as a slave forever. Fur running away a second time

A "Broad and Butter" Note.
Following a   Sunday  spent at  the
house of friends n "bread and butter '

fact, lt Is safe to sny that a note must
be written ufter nny courtesy when a ,

a call on  persons living forty  miles j

A married woman expresses appreciation of hospitality for ber husband us

Actors Looking to Canada.
Canada is regarded in England as
already worth serious consideration
as u theatrical touring ground. More
und more we will find English companies coming to Halifax for an exclusive Canadian tour."
So remarks Mr. George Graham, an
English actor of high standing, who
passed through Ontario recently.
"Canada as a theatrical country i-
gnining every year in fuvor with Eng-
Hah managers," suid Mr. Graham.
' V\ Ith the passing of every twelve*
month the population is given such
au impetus that towns which previously were unable to support com
panles find themselves suddenly with
u nice theutre and a public demand
for attractions.
"Edward Terry has announced a
tour here of eight weeks solid. Thai

Iw followed by many others. Canada
is u delightful country fur the most
part to play in; the audiences have
likes similar to our own people in
Kngland uml seem particularly glad
to  welcome   English  companies.
"This augurs a pleasant relation in
Canada's theatrical affairs us time

Original  Interpretations.
A story is going the rounds of a
school teacher iu one of the foreign
settlements of Toronto, upon whom a
leputution of Italian mothers waited
.vith a complaint that they would nol
have their children taught songs
.vhich ridiculed their nationality by
referring to them as "dagoes." Inquiry showed that the offending line
occurred in "My Old Kentucky
Home," iu which the sentiment occurs that "The day poes by like a
shadow on the heart.'
This anecdote is matched by a wo-
mun who hud sent her little sou to
the infant class of a Sunday School.
He came home lustily chanting a
hymn, und one line caught her attention as it ran, "White men to the forward; dark passengers through"
When the small boy was, questioned
he felt certain that such wus the
hymn taught them by the teacher,

mother found he had made a slight
mistake iu catching the words which

open market square several large
tents had been put up, flouting a haulier bearing the inscription: "Howe's
Oroat London Show."
A large parade shortly alter ten
o'clock started the circus dny celebration, Crowds turned out to sec the
coloalial parade pass. The parade
showed the long list ol performers,
the hcaut llui horses, the herds ot elephants and camels, the large numher
01 cages containing many wild beasts
trom the wilds ol Africa and Asia,
together with their cubs; the lady
snake charmer sitting in tbc midst of
large serpents from the marshes of
Bouth Africa, the Inrge corps of

the German minstrel nnd clown banilB
nil of which werc hilled for performance during the alternoon and evening, and which went to mnke up a
complete cirrus outfit.
The matinee performance began   at
2 o'clock, and for two hours tba
crowds which tilled the main tent to
its capacity werc held In amused
interest in the wonderful acrobatic
feats performed in tbe rinhs, on
trapeze and on the tight and slack
wires. The Eddy fnmily distinguished themselves during the performance
yesterday, Master Phillip Eddy's
somersaults ou the tight wire buve
made his name famous in thc world

Another of thc mnny attractions
was the Japanese juggling troupe

Mr. W. C. Gladwin, supervisor of
Firewardens, in receiving tlie report
of the Ure that ran for miles along
the country In the vicinity of Squa-
mish, said:
"1 think that owners ol camps
should hnve stricter regulations
prohibiting their men from
smoking while out in the woods. The
moBt dangerous form for Ares is
cigarette smoking. A match wlll
soon go out, hut the stump of a cigarette thrown among dry leaves
will smoulder for a long time and
break out In flames when tho mon

This is the time of year when everyone should exercise the strictest pre-
cnution, and no precaution should be
avoided that will save the valuable
limits we have.

Report of Bureau
of Mines
Following is tliu report of the Minister of Mines for tliu year  1910.
The total value uf the ore production from mines iu the provinco, Including minerals uf all kinds is $26,-
Kast Kootenay is the banner district uf the province having produced
minerals to the value of $6,121,832,
or nearly one-fourth of the entire
output for thfl province.
In 1910 East Kootenay, Fort Steele
division, produced 115,762 tons of
minerals, IfiO ounces of placer gold;
501,475 ounces of silver, and 21,874,*
562 pounds of lead.
Tlie   production   of cement, bricks,
;c, amounted to $5,11110.
In Blast Kooteuay, live mines were
on the (shipping list, and these mines
produced 115,762 tons of ore, nud
employed a total of 229 men under
ground, with 'M men above ground,
a total of 313 men.
The annual returns of the eastern
slope, or Alberta side of the Rocky
Mountains nre made to thc government of that province, whence thoy
may he obtained by anyone Interested.
Three companies were operqttng on
the British Columbia side in L910,
viz.'Tbe Crow's Nest Pass ('onl Oo.,
Hosmer Mines, Ltd., and tire Corbin
Coal and Coke Oo., Ltd. The details
of their several operations are given
elsewhere, together with particulars
of other properties at present under
development. A description of this
coalfield, by the Provincial Mineralogist was given in tbe report of 1909
under the heading of "Coal Mining."
By far tiie greatest proportion of
coal is produced by the ('row's Nest
Pass Coal Co., operating collieries nt
Michel and Coal Creek (Ferule), the
united gross output of which, in 1910
was 1,11X0,145 tons. Of this output
265,566 tons were used iu making
coke; the resulting coke amounting
to 173,659 tons. The Hosmer Mines
mined 158,123 tons of cnal and made
42.087 tons of coke. The Corbin Coal
Co. praduced 126,851 tons of coal and
no coke.
The collieries In the Knst Kootenny
District mode in 1910 a gross pro-
ducduction of 1,365,119 tons of coal,
of which 3,539 tons were added to
stock during the year, leaving the
amount nf coal distributed 1,361,580
tons, Of this amount 335,519 tons
were used for making coke, the resulting coke being 215,696 tons.
The St. Eugene mine in East Kootenay, formerly a large producer of
silver ond lead, has, temporarily at
least, run out of the ore-shoot, nnd
made a very much decreased output,
which was, however, partly compensated for hy the reopening of tho
Consolidated company, of tbe Sullivan mines.
Tbe lead production is tbis year, as
usual, derived chiefly from the Fort
Steele Mining division, which amounted to 23,874,562  pounds of lend,  or
68.88 per cent, of the total production of the province,
The East Kootenuy Collieries,  ow
ing to their distance from the seaboard, are protected by the cost of
transportation from competition of
the coastwise fuels, lioth solid and
liquid; hut tbe same factor also limits the field of "the market for Enst
Kootenay fuel to the Interior of British Oolumbla and to the States immediately south.
East Kootenay district produced
1,365,119 tons irt coal, employing
3,111 men.
In the East Kootenay Held the
competition "f the various collieries
in British Columbia ami immediately
across   tbe   line  in   Alberta  has   kept
the price obtainable for coal between
$2.25 and *2.50 a ton, with little probability of a material Increase, owing to the facility with which new
collieries can be opened up in that
The gross output of tlie collieries
of tbe East Kootenay district for the
year 1910 was 1-J866.U9 tons (2,240
lh.) of coal actually mined, of which
3,539 tons were put Into stock, mnking the actual consumption of coul
1,361,580 tons. Of tbis gross consumption of coal, 933,666 tans were
sold as coal, 82,323 tons were consumed as fuel hy tho producing companies, 11,073 tons were lost In washing, while 334,519 tons were converted into coke, of which there was produced 215,696 tons, while 1,940 tons
of coke were added to stock, and 79
tons were used under companies boilers, making the coke sales for the
year 213,677 tons.
The East Kootenay collieries exported to the United States about
SO per cent, of the coal they sold,
and about 4 per cent, of the coke.
I have the honor to submit a report on the progress of mining In the
Fort Steele Mining Division for the
year 1910.

North Star Group (south-west side
of Mark Creek).—This property was
shut down during 1910, but will probably resume development this
Sullivan Group (north-east side of
Mark creek)—This property was taken over by the Consolidated Mining
& Smelting Company of Canada In
1910, The company has purchased
several adjoining claims and has done
much development work, and hns
shipped 23,000 tons of ore.
St. Eugene group (east side of
Moyie Lake).—The consolidated Mining & Smelting Company of Canada
bas reduced its working 'force during
the year, and the output diminished
to 78,000 tons.
Aurora Group (west side of Moyie
Lake)—Tbis group made a trial ship
ment, with encouraging results, and
it is hoped that shipments will he
continued in 1911.
Society Girl Group (east side of
Moyie Lake)—This group also made
a  trial  shipment with  good  results.
tin Tracy Creek the Estelta group
bas been bonded for $175,000, and the
Swan and St. Lawrence have been
purchased by u Spokane syndicate,
The portion of the Kootenay Central
railway uow heing built will come
within .six miles of these properties,
und means of transport thus furnished   is  sure   to   increase   the   work   iu
this camp.
In the St. Mary's country Increased interest is heing manifested nnd
two groups are now under bond.
The year 1910 saw the turn of the
tide in prospecting, and the year just,
pust shows a continued increase and
mining matters ure now much brighter.

Has his Eyes Opened
Deputy Minister of Agricultural visits
the Kootenay and Columbian Valleys
That the people of British Col
LimblQ possess in tbe wonderland of|
the Columbia Valley a veritable garden of Eden, awaiting the husbandman's attention, and containing from
800,000 to 1,000,000 ncres of unsur-
passable agricultural lands girt about
hy mountain scenery of incomparable!
grandeur—and with the promise too
of Immediate nn'd exceptionally good
transportation facilities! such in
brief is tbe conclusion that has been
arrived nt by the Deputy Minister of
Agriculture, Mr, W. E. Scott, who
bus just returned brimming over with
enthusiasm from the first official trip
through the wondrous Columbia vul-
Mr. Scott's trip, which he regards
as being signally successful, was undertaken In connection with the Fur
mor's Institute work, nnd upon it
be bud the pleasure nf tbe company
of Mr. Terry, the Departmental poultry expert, nnd Mr. Middleton, the
assistant horticulturist. Thc trio -of
officials went iu by way of the Arrow lakes to Crnnhrook uud motored
thence to Golden, traversing tbe entire   one   hundred    and   eighty    two
jmllcH length of the Columbia vnlley,
at present winning world wide recognition ns one of the most picturesque nnd delightful  sections of   tbe
I known world.
"The Columbia vnlley  proved      nn
'absolute revelation to me," snys Mr.
Scott, chatting of his recent trip. "I
have never heen in thnl. district before uml was wholly  nnnvure     that
I there was in this entire piovlncc so
magnitlccut a valley offering such il
limitable opportunities for tbe fruit
grower and the general farmer. For
dairying and mixed farming the Columbia valley cannot be excelled any-
whore. For small fruit growing it is
ulso eminently good, aud If great
care be taken iu the selection of varieties, tree fruits can also he grown
there with thoroughly, satisfactory
results. During my short stay, I myself saw some trees there—young trees
and trees up to fifteen years of ago—
which showed no trace of nny winter
injury, and which were bearing good
crops of excellently colored apples.
"Construction of the Kootenny
Central Railway is being very rigorously prosecuted hy the C. P, R,,
which Is working large gangs from
either ends, having given a promise
that construction will have been completed by the end of next yenr. Winn
this is accomplished there Is certain
to be a very large influx of desirable
settlers to the valley, as the transportation facilities will he equal to
the best In any section of this province, Hhipiueiits being mnde alternately via Golden nnd the C. P, R.
main line or by way of Crnnbrook
und the Crow's Nest, branch lo tbe
eager and profitable markets of tbe
prairie provinces. In tills respect Ihe
Columbia valley will be exceptionally
.favorably situated, being within 04
I hours of tho markets of Alberta.
I "As to the Valley Itself and its
suitability for agricultural colonUa-
Ition and development, I should estimate it to contain between 800,000
and 1,000,000 acres of good agricultural land,  with   countless   streams
"Meetings in connection with our
Farmer = Institute work were held at
OranbfOOk, A thai mer, Briscoe aud
Golden, all being well attended, especially that at Athalmer. That part
of the province, owing to tbe hitherto existing difficulties of transport,
has not received up to the present
that measure of attention from the
Department commcusurate with its
merits and tbe resident settlers showed themselves very well pleased to
welcome officials of the department,
nnd to receive from tbem practical
advice as to fruit growing and with
regard to the varieties which may be
planted in the Columbia Valley witli
the   greatest     chance  of   success.    Wc
made the trip through from Cran
brook to Golden by motor car with
out mishap or delay, this method being, if time is nu objoct, ilu- only
way at present presenting itself."

It Is probable that the men at this

conciliation hoard. The action of the
Corbin miners is conditional upon

Miners Reject Gordon's Plan
Fernie, B. C, Aug. I—The mass-
meeting of the miners of Gladstone
loenl union held here today furnished
another surprise to thc public by pns-
sing a resolution unanimously repudiating Chairman Gordon's recommendation to the minister of labor,
in  which  he recommends n   reduction
111 pillar work of from 5 tu 7 cents a
There was some misunderstanding
among the men regarding the position taken by the operators at the
Macleod meeting of the board of
trade Monday of last week.
Colin Macleod, the operator's representative on the conciliation board,
when signing the report with Chairman Gordon, added a recommendation of his own, which called for a
reduction of pillar work of from 7 to
12 cents a ton, and when it was
made clear to the meet ine: today thut
the operators bad refused to consider
Dr. Gordon's report without the re-
commendatlons "f Mr. Macleod, they
passed a resolution which repudiated
the chairman's report and leaves tbe
situation just where it was before the
boards of trade on convention.
Tbe larger percentage of day wage
men In this camp ifd some tu believe
that a large vote in favor of accepting Chairman Gordon's report would
be recorded, but today's action dis-*
pels that hope. The conditions at
Michel nud Hosmer are very much
like tbose at Coal Creek, aud it begins to look as if th«- recommendations ol Chairman Gordon are doomed to defeat On Friday, when the
final vote is to be taken by ballot.
To leave Morocco
Vienna, Aug. 3—A sensation was
caused here today when it was learned that Herr Sylvester, president of
the lower house of the Austrian parliament, in speaking at Salesburg
yesterday, snid that AfTstria. France
and Italy should unite to brenk tbe
liower of Kngland, "which in constantly interfering in political waters
all over the world." He said this
would not he very palatable to England, but as president of the newly
elected parliament, he felt hound to
express these sen ti meats. Herr Syl-
bester urged closer relations between
Austria and Italy and declared that
the Adriatic sen belonged to the
countries bordering on  it.
Salvation Army's Example
An Interesting example of the
Army's undenoiniuntioiiulisin a*)tj its
desire to help nil classes, irrespective
nf their creed or beliefs, is (furnished
by a recent census taken of tbe inmates of ten of the Army's Homes
in New Zealand.
Apart from officers and Salvationist employees, and sixteen lodgers in
the People's Pnlnre, the inmates' "religions" were classified as follows:
Church of Kngland, 196; Presbyterian

Dominion Has Played an Important
Part In Steam Shipping.
It i.s interesting to note that Canada lias taken quite an important
part in the development of steam
navigation. The "Accommodation,'
built hy Molson In 1809, was the first
passenger steamer to ply upon Brit-
Ish Colonial waters, aud rnn between
Montreal nnd Quebec. The fir*t
steam vessel to make a transatlantic
passage was also built and owned by
Canadians. The "Royal William."
as she was culled, was built at Cap
Itlanc. QueheOi by George Black and
J. S. Campbell for the Quebec and
Halifax service of a Quebec company. She was built of wood on a
clean lined semi-clipper model, 170
feet overall, keel   140 feet, breadth of
beam  inside  paddleboxes *2!t feet 4
inches, breadth out-side paddleboxes
43 foot 10 inches, depth of hold 17
feet ii inches. Her measurement ton*
nage was B30 tons. On April 29th,
KU. she was launched and christened after the King, hy the wife of the
then fiovernor-fJeneral, Lord Aylmer.
She wa.« towed to Montreal, where
her engines were installed, and in the
fall of the year made one or two trip*
to Halifax. Although she had auxiliary sails to assist her engines In
favoring winds, the "Royal William"
was propelled by steam alone.
When in Halifax she came under
the attention ot Samuel Cunard,
founder of the Cunard Line, and be
became very much interested in her,
and ultimately became a director in
the company which owned the vessel. It is said thut it was through
his connection with thia little steamer
that the mighty fleet which bears his
name was formed.
In 1632, trade heing very poor in
Canada, it was thought advisable to
fiend the "Royal William" across tht*
Atlantic to be sold, and ou August
4th. 1833, she left Quebec for Ixin*
don, under the command of Captain
MoDougttll. After coaling ut Pictou.
N.S., she arrived at Gravesend ou
September llth; coaling again at
Cowes iu the Isle of Wight on her
way. Her passage time between port
and port was 25 days, during which
she steamed all the way.

England's Novel Method For Treatment of Tuberculosli.
A treatment based on the curative
eflect ol graduated labor is being tried
out expt-r mentally at the tuberculosis
sanitar.um in England with excellent
results. It is known as "the work
cure" ami progress being made under
this method is attracting much atten
tion and claiming the undivided interest of al! who are enlisted in the
ranks battling to exterminate the
great white plague. The director of
the institution declares that patients
undergoing    the    open-air   treat ment
' were found to make better progress
when having a certain amount of work
to do each day than when they were
' allowed to lead aimless lives. Practical  use has been made of this ob-
I servation and a systematic table of
work  suitable  for those  in  different
■ stages of the disease is the result.
This work is divided into six grades,
varying from Uie slightest labor given
■ to those who are unfitted for active
' exercise—sewing, making mats, etc.,
j to the really heavy work of trench-
I ing, mixing concrete and felling trees.
> Short walks are considered to be light
labor for those who can get about,
l and are lollowed as progress made by
1 such easy garden employment as
'• picking up wood, carrying baskets of
I mould and watering plants.
From these occupations the patients
are gradually led ou to thu heavier
I task.s of using the small shovel, grass
: shears or u light hoe, eventually pro-
; grossing to the still more strenuous
! work of digging broken ground and
j mowing lawns. When, after the most

a Splendid Result—No Fee It Required—No Mentiin of Creed.
Without, as   yet, being   confronted
with the complex economic problem*
which exist in older countries, Canada   embraces   the   wholesome   ideal
that no willing   worker   should   lack
three meala each day and a place to
sleep at night.   She has not yet labored under the delusion that it ia her
duty to see that her population, and
the ever-increasing number of settlers
from over-seas, are ull provided with
remunerative taeks.    On every  hand
opportunities offer,   and   the   unwilling can   take   the   consequences   of
their habits.
Nevertheless, the rapid development and growth of the country hns
resulted in precipitating, in a minor
manner, conditions which show a
tendency toward* some of those problems which are the curse of Kuroo",

Rejected Immigrants.
In the statement for the last fiscal
year the Canadian Immigration authorities show that 17,614 immigrants
were rejected at the ports of entry or
on the frontier. Of tnfse 16,504 were
from the United States, while 2,210
were rejected at the ocean ports. The
Englishman is in the unenviable
position of heuding the list, as out
of 784 immigrants deported for physical unfitness, crime or other causes,
540 were English subjects. Americans
came next with 100 persons deported, while of other nationalities, 90
were Scotch, 23 were Irish, and 13

tlie main purpose of the tariff is not
to rub, but to protect.
That the manufacturer should be
abb' to improve the Quality of his
product and at the same time reduce
the price to the consumer may at first
seem Incredible, but it all hinges upon the output. Kvery manufacturing operation whether large or
small Involves n certain amount of
stationary overhead expense Including
such items as rent, heat, light, insurance, taxes, office expenses, superintendence, etc. If these expenses liOVe
tu be met out of the returns from a
Himill output it follows that the proportion curried by each unit of pro-
duction will be comparatively high.
But if on the other hand they can
be spread over n large output, then
the proportion carried by each unit
of production may become insignificantly small. Generally speaking,
the larger the output the lower the
cost of production and the cheaper
the price to the consumer, hence the
advantage of a tariff which secures
tho home market or nt least the
hulk of it to the home manufacturer.
A few examples will suffice to illustrate how this works out. In 1378
u Canadian company began the manufacture of buggies. Iu 1879 they sold
all told about 3 buggies, for which
farmers paid them from $160 to $170
each. Last year in various kinds of
wheeled vehicles they hnd an output
of 15.000 and were able to offer thc
farmer for $85 a far better buggy than
the one he used to have to pay $170
for. In 1878 the price of sugar Was
nine and ten cents a pound retail;
today it is under five cents. The
best binder in 1878 sold at from $270'
to $300; today the farmer gets a
lighter and more compact binder that
will last lunger for $125. In 1878,
single reapers retailed in Ontario nt
from $100 to $105; today the best
. reaper retails at from $U0 to $65.

There is no South African
race whose name cuuimands such wide
respect. In all the whirlwinds of
passion after the war, as well us in
the tempestuous scenes that occurred
at Pretoria before the final outbreak
of hostilities, it at least was never
breatned un. His sincerity as a Liberal opponent of President Kruger's
fatal policy of exclusion wus never in
doubt, his chivalry, his humanity,
his courage, and his skill were gladly
recognized by nil the British generals
who faced him in the field.
His honor and his loyalty to hit
pledged word have always been equally above reproach. General Botha is
uot at all loquacious, and his voice
was seldom heard in the old Volks*
ruud. To crown bis other perfections,
he speaks English perfectly.
When he was in Kngland in  1907,
General Botha whs initiated into the
mysteries of golf and promised to lav

Premier's   Ramble.
Immediately on arrival in England
aa one of the Dominion representaiva-i
at the coronation, the Hon. James S-
McGowan, the Labor Premier oi Ne*
South Wales, curried out a promise
which he gave his aged mother (wtio
emigrated Irom Lancashire fifty years
ago) that he would spend his first
Uay rambling among the green lanes
oi Old England, and he was charmed with all he saw.
Mr. McGowan was born at sea wheu
liis parents were about three week*?

ltJ55, but the career oi the Sydney
Premier has no sensational chapters.
He had quietly pushed his way frum
:he foundry to the Premiership by
determined, useful work in the unions and in the ranks of the State
Parliamentary Labor party. He
graduated in Labor politics in lsui.
■vheii he became member for Kedtem
.u the New Suuth Wales Huuse oi
Assembly. Redfern—the railway suburb oi Sydney—has been loyal to
iiiin ever since. After three years in
Parliament he was elected leader ol
the growing Labor party ia 1894; and
nas been re-elected every three yeur»
Like most of the best and ablest
men in the Australian Parliament,
James McGowan is an unaffectedly
religious man. For twenty-four yeurs
he nas been superintendent of an

happened to be strangers to thu majority of the congregation. They weril
directed to u weil-cushionod pew oc

the wrath of the occupant, and in a
tone more forcible thau elegant she
insisted un them clearing out. They
needed no second bidding, and repair-
d to auouier part of the church where
they could sit undisturbed. After the
service, some one acquainted with
ihe identity of the strangers approached the irate pew owner. "Uo you

Teacher—Now, remember, Nellie,
that anything you cun see tnrough is
transparent. Can you name something tlmt is transparent?
Small Nellie-Yes, iiin'iiin. A key-
tent and with rapidly growing popula* l
tions, may within a few years become
part and parcel of the Union of South
Africa, and some definite scheme fur
the future governing of these great
populous territories will have to be de*
vised; one which will give the native*'
no handle with which t*» shake tht* ,
confidence of the outside world in the
wisdom and integrity of the Union
]° K°| Qovernment, while at tha same time it
appeases the established feelings of
the dominant color.
The difficulties that beset the path of
satisfactory legislation having fur ita
aim the gradual elevation to political
rights of so primitive aud diverse (
tribes, must of necessity be numerous
Nevertheless, a way must be found,
and that between the extremes uf the I
hollow American "Man and a Broth*
er" and the "Nigger nnd a Dog" feeling. With the great advancement of
education anions the natives, with the
recognized striving for bunk learning
which they evince, mul ubove ull with
tin- example of tlie whites before them.
it is very natural that they should
move for the possession of some soil
of political franchise.
In what manner is it possible to
grant, with benefit to the natives and
at the sume tim- with dignity to the
whites,  this  rational demand?
Under existing circumstances the
position is rouj; 'y this: In the Cape
Province natives may attain a vote
under more or less easv Qualifications;
in tho Transvaal und Grunge River
Colony tbey have no vote. In Natal
the qualifications is so stringent that
it is practically prohibitive. The Basil*
tos hold Pitsos, which are assemblies
nf chiefs or headmen, in which their
tribal affairs ure discussed. The Swiia-
is und Zulus have nothing resembling either tho Parliament ol the white
man or the PHso oi the Basuto,
Thousands ol natives are with extraordinary diligence acquiring knowledge; already hundreds have been sent
over to America to undergo a course
of education there, and thus the whim
of South Africa must be prepared
shortly for a strong display of native
educational results, terminating in a
well-founded cry tor political rigiits.
Now, in the Busuto appears to be ;
tho whole solution of the mutter; why ;
not bave a native Parliament to which
all the native tribes of South Africa !
cuuld send representatives?
Take away the frunchise of the natives at the Cape us at present exer* I
cised,  in  favor of  a more extended
one, ior a Parli'iment of their own;
place this Parliament under a com* ,
mission,  who  would  forward  to  the
Union  Parliament for ratification or
otherwise   such   resolutions   as   have j
come to them 'rom the I'itso.
This would give all the native tribes |
an opportunity of airing their grievances   und   ideas,   and   alone   would '
lessen by half the danger arising from
the probable bur-ting of a scaled furnace, j
The native population of South Africa is increasing, and we have the
menacing example of the U.S.A. before us.
The natives cannot and will not ex*
pect for the  present and  for  a long
while to come the full and free frail- i
chise of the whites, but tbey certainly
will desire to labor under no undue
intolerance, und  have a right to ex- '
pect a wholehearted consideration of j
their side of the case. |
Tbc adoptioif of such a course as
that outlined above would, under proper safeguards, curry with it but little
risk of danger to the white population,
while to the natives it must appear
such a great stride iu the recognition
of their status of citizenship, tbat it
surely muat earn the gratitude of unbounded loyalty to the Government
uud people which established it.
Such a scheme will huve many dp-
tails to be considered, such as the
advisability of tbe channel of com*
munioation between the two Parliaments, consisting of either one Minister or a commission, and so forth;
but the first step is to find the path
which will lead to a satisfactory solution of a question the gravity of which
cannot be over-estimated.

Pickled Steel.
"To keep the iron and steel used in
building big ships from rusting," an
engineer told the reporter, "is a mutter of supreme importance. The British Admiralty is very pnrtiAilar that
every piece shall be painted tbe moment it is ready fur building purposes.
Hut tlie steel plates form a hard black
surface, called "mill scale," in the
process oi manufacture. This clings
tenaciously to the glate, and if it is
covered with paint, and afterwards
tlie plute gets damaged, then the scab
peels off, taking the paint with it,
aud leaving the steel bare. The plate
is then liable to rust-corrosion, a str-
ious danger to thc ship.
"We therefore remove every trace of
scale before painting Uie steel plate.
. It is put into a bath of dilute hydro-
any  noil*t chloric acid  for a few  hours,  which
!■ ;i1 l|r,nl loosens the scale.   The nlate is then
brushed with wire hruslffs and washed with a hose,   Tills is what we call
"pickling steel'."

What Taft has said
The reduction in the duties Imposed
by Cannda will give us even n larger share of her market than we now
enjoy, great ns that is.
The greatest reason fur adopting
this agreement is the fact, that it is
going to unite two countries with
kindred people, and lying together
ncross a wide continent in a commercial and soeial union.

to bring about closer business nud
trade relations, and insist upon the
continuance of an artificial wall between the two countries, which differ
more in conditions of labor and
production thnn do Kentucky and
Tennessee or Georgia and Alabnma,

willing to endor.se reciprocity if it
involves the wenhening of any Tmper-

the great world-wide movement for
the consolidation ot thc Empire.

paused the reciprocity agreement, and
Sir Wilfrid seems to be in n hurry to

The new parliament, according to
the announcement of Sir Wilfrid Laurier, will be elected on the hnsis of
the obsolete census of ten yenrs ago.
An election on these terms means
that the weBt will he cheated out of

The Herald is emphatic Ib stating
that Br. King will he the Liberal
candidate in the coming election. A
very prominent Liberal told a Prospector representative a month ago
that it was decided that if an election took place, M. A. Macdonald

why "M. A." is shelved in the King

that can fill the bill, but then we

Reciprocity is tho rock that will

"When there is a heavy wheat crop
in the prairie provinces a shortage ol
cars follows in the lumber camps as
a matter uf course, and for that winter and during the ensuing year until the lumber season opens again
there is bound to be a sln>rtagv oi
lumber in the middle Western provinces. So you see n large crop is
no unmixed blessing tu the people
who live in Alberta, Saskatchewan,
and Manitoba."
The above statement was made t<>
a Prospector reporter Thursday by
A. .1. Steele, of the Steele Lumber
mills near Hosmer. Mr. Steele emphasised the fact that before the beginning of September those lumber
mills which have not now sent in
their requisitions to the O. P. It (or
empty cars. will practically be
obliged to stop working, owing to
COngOHtlon of finished lumber in thr
yards, until the grain has been emptied in the enst and the cars once
more sent on their wny west.
"This year the car shortage in the
lumber camps in the mountains will
be the most serious the British Columbia industry has ever encountered.
It is already making itself felt, I, for
one, have been making requisition after requisition fur cars and there is
almost a certainty thnt I shall not
get them before the winter, and hy
then they will be of nu use."
At this juncture Mr. Steele took the
reporter down to the railroad, and
pointed to a long freight train on a
"That's going east," he said, "and
note its length."
There were nineteen cars, mostly
filled with lumber, and a few refrigerator fruit cars.
"This morning a westbound freight
came past," continued Mr. Steele,
"It was a limited, flew the white
flag—showing there was no second
section folluwlng—and cunsisted of—
,uur cars! Yesterday the Way freight
far Crow's Rest went hy Macleud,
when I wns down there, and it had
only two cars attached. You see that
all the cars here in the mountains
are being loaded as fast as possible
and Bent east, but none are coming
back, and none will come back until
after all the grain ia unloaded. Then
it will be tun late.
"Lumber men have been accused,
were accused in 1309. of holding back
the lumber till the opening of the
spring camps to obtain higher prices.
In the winter of 190H there was a serious lumber shortage in Winnipeg,
and prices rose two hundred per cent.
The papers iu the middle west sent
representatives out here and to New
Ontario and Northern Quebec, and
then- discovered enormous piles of
finished lumher. which, if carted to
Winnipeg, would have relieved the
situation, ami sent the prices down
tu normal again. Then and there
they accused the lumbermen of causing the shortage mi purpose to obtain the higher prices.
"Notbun* was ever more unjust.
The lumbermen's associations wrote
letter ufter letter repudiating the
statements und placing the blame on
the large wheat crop and its consequent shnrtnre of cars, but to no
use. The public would imt believe
"This year there will again he a
big shortage in lumber in Winnipeg,
and I am fully expecting the old
statements ubout us waiting for a
use in prices to be trotted out. My
object in telling you all this is to
attempt to acquit my fellow lumbermen of blame if there is a shortage,
and to show the real reason for It.
There will be a heavier crop than
ever before this year iu the prairie
provinces, and consequently a worse
shortage than ever before. The blame
lies somewhere;—is it with the railroads for not putting more freight
cars on the road, or with the farmers for persisting in growing such
large crops?"
Mr. Steele's views were endorsed by
several other lumbermen in and
uround Oranbrook.

Borden Criticizes
Opposition Leader Says Government is in a Panic
Ottawa, July 30— R. L. Uorden, opposition leader, in a statement issued
: tonight, declares that the government
1 apparently "decided upon the disso-
' lution of parliament in a hurry, or
1 even in a panic, as they gave no Intimation to the many memlrers who
, are accustomed to spend the week-end
with their families, and who left Prl-
day without tho courtesy of a notice."
"The Conservative party welcomes
an appeal upon reciprocity," Mr.
: Horden asserted. "The president of
! the United States haB more than
once emphasised the fact that Canada
' today is at the parting of the ways.
Those two ways lead in very divergent directions. The choice .>f the
people will he fraught with women*
tous consequences to the future of
(the country. It is right and just
i that they should speak, because with
them rests tbe ultimate decision. '
Mr. Borden condemns the government for having dissolved parliament
without supply for the services of the
country and without having given tbe
census so that parliamentary constituencies could be redistributed and
the west given its proper representation.
"Canada has made unexampled progress in the grent work of nation-
building since its confederation in
1867," Mr. Borden continued. "That
work has been carried on without
any such treaty or agreement as is
now proposed."
In conclusion Mr. Borden declares
that the government has placed the
agreement before ite honor, as it began in May an investigation Into
newspaper reports that Minister of
thc Interior Oliver had profited in
the transfer of lands to tho Canadian
Northern railway and importnnt witnesses from thc west were to have
been  examined  on  Tuesday.
"It is a distinct breech of usages,"
said Mr. Borden, "that parliament
should he dissolved while one of Its
committees is engaged in the investigation of charges that involve the
honor of a minister of the crown and
the fate of the government. Such a
cotirso constitutes nn alarming and
dangerous precedent."

The call for a convention of the

it will result in a large attendance of

While the selection of a candidate
will rest with these delegates, at the

who has so ably represented this constituency during the past three years,
will be the choice of the convention,
providing he sees his way clear to
again accept the honor of carrying
the party's standard, and he has said
nothing to the contrary up to tbe

now and election day is extremely
short, just seven weeks from yesterday until the people will be called

Kootenny must not await until a

Committees should be struck and
work should be commenced upon the
voter's lists without delay, for it
must be remembered that a good candidate and a good cause do not always win an election. Over-confidence
has lost many an election. It Hhould

Political  Information
vt a meeting of the Rldeau club at
Ottawa on Sunday evening last Premier McBride, when asked if he would
lie a candidate in the coming election
declined to commit himself. It is understood that he has promised Mr.
Uorden to stump Hritish Columbia
and Alberta.
Hon. Clifford Sifton said that he
did not propose to he a candidate.
He had seen Mr. Uorden and will
probably make a statement in the
course of a few days.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier, it is expected,
will con tine his tour to Ontario and
Quebec, while Mr. Borden will extend
his to the Maritime provinces.
Neither will go west between now and
election day.
Mr. Sifton said that It would be his
duty to take some part in the campaign in opposition to reciprocity,
but he intended to devote the balance of his public career to the conservation commission, which would
take up all his time.

If tbe opposition in the Hoimo ol

We believe Ontario is three to one
against reciprocity. Let us say so.
If we do, commercial union is killed
forever. Sir Wilfrid Laurier will disappear, but so will contlnentalism.
This appeal must be made in Ontario before all other issues. Let Sir
Wilfrid Laurier bring it to a head as
soon as he likes. He will say his
government is being blocked. It deserves to be. Ontario has saved Canadian nationalism before today, and
we believe it will save it again.
(Toronto News)
Three years ago the government
carried 42 constituencies by less than
250 of a majority. Seventeen of these
were in Ontario, ten in Quebec, five
in Nova Scotia and four in New
Brunswick. A change of 2,500 votes
would have brought about the decisive defeat of the government.
(Toronto Globe).
A general election this autumn will
be a sort of referendum on reciprocity; and we may have another general
election next autumn for the constitutional reason that a new parliament ought to come soon after a redistribution of the constituencies.
(Montreal Star).
The British Liberal papers welcome
reciprocity as a death blow to tho
imperial preference policy. Their diagnosis of the case is perfectly correct. Reciprocity—if hnally adopted
-will kill the policy of mutual preferences as dead as a door nail. Incidentally it will kill the British empire and the existence of Oanada as
a separate nation. The British Liberal pnperB have as much reason for
rejoicing as a mnn would have whom
some benevolent despot was about to
cure the toothache by cutting off his
(Syracuse, N, Y. Herald).
II Canada Bhould turn down that
reciprocity treaty now, after congress,
has boiled and perspired through an
extra hot summer to pass it, we .have
an iden that there would be some
pretty stirring speeches made In tho
next congress favoring the forcible
annexation ol our northern neighbor.
