CRANBROOK,   B.  C,   SATURDAY,   JANUARY   99.   1910.
tho evening so pleasant, a uid lang
syne. terminnteit the proceedings
which will long he remembered,
An Enthusiastic and Sue
cessful Celebration.
The Program of the Evening Carried out in True
Scottish Style.
A most enthusiastic and successful
celebration ol' the anniversary of thc
birthday ot Hohort Burns took place
Tuesday evening iu thc Auditorium.
by a "Sooper", a concert, toasts nnd
a ball. Tables were set for over 301)
guests. The Urge hall was well tilled
and every detail was carried out in
excellent order. The call to supper
was announced by the iiabering in oi,
the "Chieftain oj the pudden rnce,"
led by Mr. A. McCuwan playing h
march on the pipes. Mr. John Mc
Donald then gave Burn's address to
"tho Haggis" in true dramatic style.
Mrs. A. Wilson superintended the
preparation of the dish and it was
pronounced by eonnoiseurs to-be excellent and worthy of     the occasion.
After full justice had heen done to
the various viands, Mr. James Finlay took charge of the tonst list,and
Mr. McOowun the programme of th*
The tirst and loyal toast was "Tb*
King". The audience standing sane
"Clod wave the King."
Mrs. K. Patterson then snng "Mary
of Argyle", and in response to n
very emphatic encore unrig "Ye Danks
and Braes."
Then followed- "The Immortal
memory of Rohcrt Burns,, responded
to by Mr. John Flngal .Smith. After
giving a short description of the
birth and life of thc poet, the wide
range of his genius, in giving expression to the Inmost feelings of his
fellow men. His love of liberty, his
patriotism nnd his profound love nnd
sympathy with oven the animal crfa-
tion, as was exhibited in so ninny of
his songs. The Owl, Thc Mouse, the
Hare were all samples. What a
depth of feeling wns expressed in
"Man wns made to mourn," what n
picture or the peasant in "The Cot-
tens' Saturday Night," what exquisite tenderness in "Mary in Heaven."
What lyric hns ever matched, foi
sterling independence, "A Man's a
Man for a' that." Then the grandest
patriotic song to be found in any
Lay the proud usurpers low,
Tyrants, Ta In every foe;
Liberty in every blow;
Let. do or die.
This song, Carlyle said, should be
flung with tbe throat of the whirlwind. The versatile side of Burns
wns shown also in his prose
eplstolatory correspondence. It it
nnt then verv -strnin-e thnt n rr,°*'
who produced so much and yet lived
.struggling against poverty and dyim
at tbe age of thirty-seven, shoulil
have his name aud memory perpetuated after the long period of one
hundred and fifty-one years.
Mrs. Ahernothey then sang "Robin
Adair" and in response to an encore
Hang "Gin a body."
Mr. M. A. Macdonald responded in
eloquent and forcible terms to the
"Land wo live In". He gave much
credit to the prosperity and stability
of Canada to the Scots, who although never losing the love for the
"Land of his birth" by his Industry,
intelligence and character helped so
much to the development or this Canada of ours. Mr. Macdonald llll mot'
OUK-Iy alluded to the reputed wander
ing character of the Sent, that If tim
North Pole wns discovered, it would
l«t hy a Scotsman, and he wns likely
to lind another Srolsman ahead of
him when he got there.
Master Charier* McCownn danced
thc "Sword nance" which was very
highly appreciated, nnd in response
to an encore darned a Highland
Mrs. A. B. Mncdnnald then snug,
"Plana," and gave as nu encore
•"Plorcne" which was much appreciated,
Mr. Doano of tho Crnnhrook Herald
responded to the Press. He refer
red in kindly terms to the subject of
the day's celebration.
Miss Maggie Kennedy   then sang
"Mnxwelton's  Braes are  Bonnie"   in
A very sweet voice befitting the song.
Mayor J. P. Fink responded to
"The City of Cranbrook." He refer
red to the prosperity of the city and
the splendid schools we possess, with
evory ref-uironifiiit up-to-date.
Mr. Brymner nnd Mr. Stevens played tho accompaniments. Mr. Hurstoti
gave a comic song entitled "Foe the
Noo," and Mr. Campbell recited n
number of Scotch stories.
The iteMiH or thc programme being
ended the tahlos were cleared away
for the dance.
The Steven's orchestra furnished
the music and the plnylng was without fault. Nn Cotillion Brent, New
free France, hornpipes, jigs, strath-
spoys and reels put life and mettle
In their heels. Dancing wns carried
on till 4 o'clock. No morn sucetss.
ful Burns' Nii-lit could he found nny

was beyond praise. Every piece
went to the heart. EJnch pleefl has

Parker William's address in the debate on the    speech from the throne
occupied nil    the afternoon session, i
He  likened  the lieutenant   governor's
forecast of legislation to a lobster
it  traveled  backward  instead  of lor .
ward.    Almost its entire contents do-
scribed gifts promised to     the Canadian   Northern  uml   Kettle  river   v:il
ley charter holders; in fact, it was ii i
case  of    give,  give,   give.      (Inly  one'
feature   pleased him, the     announcement that it. was intended to reduce
taxation.    He said it is time some!
thing of this kind wns done.
An attack on the capitalistic class
marked the remainder of his diatribe
He spoke of railway corporations as
inveterate enemies nf laborers and
declared tlie name of Lord Strath-
cona, spoken nf so highly in tlie
speech from the throne, would be forgotten ii few months niter he had
passed away.

How the Laurier Government is
Trifling with the Issue.
Ottawa,  Jan, 2».   Mr.  It.   S.   Lake,
Qu'Appelle, in the course of the budget debate protested strongly against
the delay in constructing the Hudson
Bay Railway.    In  February.  I'.)07,tlie
premier declared that     the time had
come to  build the line,    lu  September, 1908, be again snid that the time
had come.    The Liberal party  waged
tbe greater part of its election cam '\
palgn in     the Northwest     upon that i
declaration;   it was represented as a
specific promise.   Yet In 1910 no pro-,
vision whatever lias been made in the
estimates for the turning of a single i
sod on     that railway up to the ,11st
of   Mnreh,      1911.       Meanwhile    the!
Northwest has already paid over the
cost of the line.   There has been sold,
up to October Inst, pre-emptions and
purchased     homesteads to the extent
of -l,l"J0,00(i acres;   the money received on account of these sales amount-1
ed to $12,391,200, nearly the     whole j
amount of the sum which the railway)
is estimated to   cost.    The    railway;
was to be    charged to these     lands;
the lands have been sold, the money
Is being    spent    elsewhere,    and  the
railway is in the future.
See Halley's Comet in Spokane.
Although Halley's comet is not
scheduled to appear for several weeks
what looked like it could be plainly
seen a few nights ago iu the western
sky, close to the horizon. Several
persons reported seeing the Comet,
or what appeared to be it, and although none of those known to have
seen the phenomenon was an author
Ity on astromony, it is generally
thought thnt. Halley's comet lias
made its appearance.
The comet threw off a glare which
could be seen plainly. The main part
seemed to be in a haze and did not
look brilliant enough to throw off
the long stream of light which could
be seen.
Father Adams, instructor iu astro
uomy at Gomtnga col lego, said*
"I don't believe that what, these
I people saw was the celebrated comet,
i for the simple reason thnt. it is too
j far away at present. According to
| calculat ions or the master natron-
; omers this comet is now outside ol
| the orbit or Mars. If this is right if
can not he visible to the linked eye.
The comet wlll come into view, thoy
[say. about April 10th, und will be
I visible for severul days before it dis-
I appears in the rays of the sun, to reappear about May I. It will tie near
jest to this planet about  May 'it*.

London,  Jan.
ithe   reported   refusal of ihe    United
States to grant a   minimum    tariff,
j Sir Thomas  Bliaughncssy,  interview
«d, said     thnt the MeKinley    tariff!!
I advanced   Canada industrially     and
.agriculturally  twenty  years ago. Ap-
: parcntly     our neighbors wanted    to
i give us another     advantage of    the
same character.    "I look lor n similar result in     the case    of this new
tariff.    It should   provide     an addf
tionnl impetus to our manufacturers,
to the policy of milking the most of
our natural rrnources nnd material,"
Snowslide in Pass-
f'Vniie, Jan. 27,- Rain and mild
weather has had the usual effect of
causing snowslidcfl throughout the
Pass but fortunately these have hoi
interfered with traffic on the railways
to any great extent, Tbe Gnnndlnu
Pacific railway tins not Buffered at all
as yet but the Great Northern line
has been blocked nt. Swinton. The
passenger train which should arrive
in Fernie from Spokane at 7 o'clock
Sundny did not reach the city until
11:110 Mondny and the conl trains
were also Unable to leave here until
after the passenger train wns in.
There iu every prospect of the weather improving within the next few
dnys and the danger of further se
riouu slides will be past.
Ottawa, Jan, 21), The feature ol
tho dehiiLe oa Ihe lirst reading ol tho
government Naval Service Hill was
Mr. It. L. Honlen's great speech. Sir
Wilfrid Laurier introduced the bill
that duty having been imposed upon
him somewhat unexpectedly by the
sudden illness of Mr, Brodeur. Tbe
premier gave the merest outline of
the policy {if the government, his
speech containing nothing in the way
of exposition or defence of his plan.
The programme to which the Government has committed itself is
rhis; (li  It   will      procure  eleven
ships, none of them large as warships go, hut all of them of the
most expensive of their sort. Four
of them will be fust cruisers of about
■1,800 tons displacement, of a type
commonly known as the "Bristol,"
tlmt being the mime of the lirst ship
of tbis class to be designed lor thr
British navy. One will be a smaller
fast cruiser, oi about 3,300 tons nf
Hie "Boadicea" type. Six will be
what are called "torpedo boat de
stroyors", of what is called the improved "river" class, a torpedo boat
destroyor is a very fast vessel designed to tigbl with torpedoes ami
given a very light armament of guns
a Inrgc number or these vessels recently built for the British navy
havo hcea named ulter rivers in the
British Isles, nnd so arc enlled the
"river'' class. If we were to buy
these ' ships in England they would
cost about $11,000,000; if we build
thorn iu Canada the cost will b*. at
least $15,000,000 and in addition nn
one can tell when they will be ready
for before we can build the ships we
must construct and equip the dock
yards, nnd that will be aa enormous
and tedious labor, Thus all thnt we
ure sure about in these ships is that
they will cost a lot of money; we
don't know when we shall get them.
(2)    There is to be a naval  force.
Pan    of ii- is to    be   n     permanent
force, part    is     to be   a     volunteer
force.       Service     in the   permanent
fqree is to be for three years.     The
officers for it   are to be   trained   in
the naval college.    Now, in the Roy
al navy the term is much longer, and
British     naval officers hold   that it
takes six years to make seamen gun
ners, of the efficiency     demanded in
the British nnvy.   Thus our terms of
service are to be different from those
I nf the British navy;   thoy are to be
i shorter than those which the British
: navy find  necessary; and our otllcors
' are to be kept apart     from   British
I naval officers,    ft is provided that il
I war breaks out    the    Onuadinn Government  mny  if it chooses turn our
} naval service over to the Admirality
| for general   service in    the     British
I navy.    If it does so it must summon
| parliament, if   that     body is proro-
! gued, within tlfteen days.    If it does
i not     feel  like   helping   the     Mother
country it need not nnd if it refuses
uid to Great     Britain it is under no
obligation  to   summon    parliament.
The     fact that    the terms of service
• ure so unlike     those of     the    Royal
navy will  greatly lessen  the value of
the Canadian naval service if handed
; over  to  tbe  Admirality.    If wc had
officers  trained  under    the same traditions     as British officers, and men
enlisted on the snme terms nnd train
ed in the     same manner,     the fleets
, would be Interchangeable.
Bui the government refuses to do
tlmt,   so that   our ships if    turned
over will be of the loust possible
sorvico.       In any     event,  it   will  be
: years before we have them. Compare with these halting proposals, at
once slow, expensive and ineffirienl
Mr. Borden's words. At tbe end ol
his speech, niter a powerful declination  of the duty  resting upon Oaun
I 'In <>f playing ber own pari in the
hour of trial, lie went  on to say:
"So, if Canada be true to hersoli
she will not "nil iu the day of trial
to the empire, but stan proud, pow
erl'iil and resolute iu the very fore
front of the sister nations. But. she
must stand unprepared. "I say to
my right Hon. friend the Prime Mill
later, so fur as my words Imve any
weight, with him: Go on with your
naval service. Proceed cautiously
and surely.
"Lay your proposals before the
people, and give them if necessary opportunity to be hoard, but do not
forgot that we are confronted with
an emergency which mny rend th:
empire asunder before the propose
service is worthy of the     name.     In
ithe faca of such a situation inini
dlate, vigorous, earnest action is
necessnry. We have no Dreadnoughts
ready, we have no licet unit at hand
Bill we have the resources and I
trust the patriotism to provide n
(loot unit or at least a dreadnought
witboui one moment's deiayr Or, In
my opinion this would be u better
course, we can place the equivalent
in cash at the disposal of the Admirality to be used tor naval defence
under such conditions as we may
prescribe, In taking this course wc
will fulfill not only to the letter, but
in the spirit as well, tlie resolution
of lasl. March, uml wliot is Infinitely
more  important  we  will  discharge n
, great  patriotic duty  to our country
[and to the whole empire."
May Subside lutk its Catacombs
Submerged Area Wider-
Paris. Jan- -'- Another day has,
passed, but the inexorable yellow
tide still creeps BlOWly higher, each
Inch Ol water widely extending tho
area of destruction, desolation ami
Tlie sun is shining in Paris today.
The rain ceased throughout the al
dieted districts before noon, and as
the waters of the Seine appeared tu
subside the Iniiientati >ns of tlie populace gave wny to rejoicings. It was t
hoped that tbe worst wns over, nut
the wish  was father io the thought.
At  12 o'clock     the   water     gunge ■
showed a drop in  the  waters of the
Seine at   Pont      Royulc    The nuhsi
donee      continued     fir    30  minutes,
amounting to three-quarters    of an.
inch.    Cries of joy from    the watch
ers wore taken up by thousands along
Lbe quays,    Later it      was said thai
the fall was due to     tbe rapid over
tlow    into     the   Bercy quarter from
points   where  tbe    Seme  had   broken
its barriers.   Tbe     experts said thai
the river was still rising this nftor
noon, imt that the    maximum Hood i
should   be  reached  at   3 o'clock,
In the afternoon the fluvial depart
ment predicted a further rise of eight
Inches before the rrest of the river
Seine is reached. The flurry of joy
at noon was followed by pessimism
as tlie waters continued to rise.
At ;t o'clock tlie river bad risen
two inches since the subsidence at
noon. The Red Cross society today
established kitchens for the destitute
at a hundred points.
It. is rumored this evening that tb;'
dike protecting Gennevllllors, six
miles from Paris, hns broken an I
that the entire town had been inun
dnted. The population of the town
is 7,000
Paris today resembles a beleaguered city. The military commander in
ach of the live sections into which
tbc metropolis has been divided holds
his soldiers In constant readiness for
Uspatcb to points of dnugor. Thei
government of the municipality hns,
placed the military barracks nnd the
public School ' building at the
disposition of tho refugees, who nl
ready n urn her, i t is estimated, more
than 100,000. Fifteen thousand laborers or the city are also out of
work, and although subscriptions
are pouring in, $200,000 having been
raised last night, the govornment
i his morning decided to ask parliament far an additional credit, to be
used in  relief work.
Every point today brought a new
tale of disaster. At s o'clock the
vault of tbe Orleans railway tunnel
gave way nt the Rue Git Lecoour;
another bad cave-in occurred in the
Hue Lile, flooding the < unrtcis of tho
German embassy, which was surrounded by water this morning and abandoned.
The main drain under the Champs
de Mars broke during the forenoon
and tbe blanket of water extended
hack to the Invnlides, where reposes
thc body of Napoleon.
The wnlln of the Invalided station
are crumbling and both that structure nml the wing of the foreign
office opposiitc are in danger of collapse. Nevertheless Mine. PInchon,
wife of tlie foreign minister, hold hot
regular reception this evening, oil
lamps and grate tires being employed in the absence oi stenm bent and
electricity. The streets surrounding
the St. Lnzare station hnve sunk
three feet, and the situation there is
regarded ns desperate.
The gunge of the water this morning exceeded nil records back to 1007
nnd up to 12 o'clock the river continued to riso at the rate of throe-
quartors of an inch an pour. I
New Comet Beats Halley's
New York, Jan. 27.-The new conwt
discovered Inst week in western Canada, In England and in South Africa
close to the sun in tho evening and
morning sky and now visible from
the northern hemisphere and emerging from the solar rays in the even
ing sky, is one or the strange interlopers from space, whose coming astonishes astronomers as much as
anybody else. Moreover it is evidently a comet of the lirst magnitude
It la nil the mure remarkable that
this great stranger should have made
its dramatic appearance at the time
when Halley's comet is Hearing the
still and preparing for its perihelion
swing. But the two comets are pur
suing an entirely different puss and
the new one is likely to he n fur
grander object thnn its well known
rival. Not enough is yet known oi
its orbit to nimble us to say jusl
what its ful ure course will be hut it
.is so brilliant that most surprising
things tuny confidently ox pec tod of it.

the laud will be thrown open for settlement hy the government.
Just what wlll ho the exact terms
of the government's legislation, the
premier did not announce, but he intimated that it would follow the line
of tho interim report of tbc forestry
commission and said ho hoped it
would be introduced shortly.
Another important announcement
mado hy the premier was to the effect that the government had decided upon the extension of the system
of free text book distribution at
piesent iu force, which means that iu
addition to the books now supplied
to public school pupils, others will
be given.
In connection with tho Canadian
Northern railway deal, Mr McBride
pledged himself that all thc promises
which he made during the election
campaign in reference to it, would bo
givon cflect in tho ratifying legislation.
In addition to these matters the
premier dealt at length with the record of his government and also replied to the attacks of the three opposition members, who had preceded
him in tho debate. He dwelt upon
tho responsibility which now rests
Upon the     government  by reason of
its strength in the bouse and warned
I his supporters of tho necessity for
I bringing tbeir best endeavors to bear
upon the legislation which is to come
before the house in order that ihc interests of the province might be nm
ply and fully protected.
A feature of the premier's speech
wns his reply to Parker William's
attack upon Karl (ircy ami Lord
strnthcona, but particularly ihe lui.
ter yesterday. Mr, McBride said that
even Mr. William's socialist follow
©re would not approve bis remarks
about Lord Strathcona, The pre
micr took high ground throughout
his aridivss which was listened to
with great., attention.
The other spoakers nf the nl'tci-
noon wore II. C, Brewster ol Alberni
nnd John Jnrriine of Esquimau,
both of whom preceded the premier
Both attacked the governmenl for its
alleged sins of omission nnd commission. The former relinked Parker
Williams for his remarks regarding
Karl (Ircy and Lord Btrnthconu.
Outside of  the    three     speeches  no
business was done, except tbe presentation of a few petitions. .1. II.

An Empty Title
Liberal Leader is Without Solitary!;"
Follower in the Provincial Legislature
Victoria, Jan. 24.—There ia at last
unanimity in the liberal ranks in the
legislature over the question ol leadership of the party. H. 0. Drewstcr
is the leader, but bo is without a tol-
lowluc;, the other member elecctetl na
a liberal, John Jnrdine, having eaat
in his lot with tbe socialists so far
as tho proceedings of the house unconcerned, accepting the leadership
ol J. H. Hnwtbornthwalte.
The matter enme up in the legislature rather unexpectedly today. When
the time arrived for the striking ol
the standing committees Mr. Brewster arose ou a question of privilege
nnd stnted that he had asked premier Mcllridc to place his name on
the municipal affairs, private bills
and railway committee.
Premier Mcflrlde then nrose to move
thu appointment ol committees and
in doing so said he would ask thc
member for Nanaimo, Mr. Haw-
thorhtliwaite, to give him the mimes
ot the members from his side of the
bouse ho desired appointed on various commutes. This Mr. Hawthorn-
thwalte did, naming himself, Mr.

imt committees. As the premier read

Most ol tbe time of the sitting wns
tnken up with the speech of I'arker
Williams, member for Newcastle, nn
thu address in reply to tbe speech
Irom the throne. Mr. Williams found
fault with the speech, with the government and with Its policy. A feature ol his speech wns an Attack on
Loi'il Stratlicrina ns a "doddering
.old man," who in yonra pust. used
his abnormal energies to secure things
which the peoplo of this country
would rcqulro in years to enme. lie
also attacked Knruest Miller and
frank A. Mnckon/ie, the mover and
aeconder respectively of the address
lo the throne. He wim particularly
vindictive towards Mr. Miller, who,
It may be remembered defeated one
ut Ilm socialist menthol's of the Inst
