Railroad Employes
Will Lose Jobs If Reciprocity Passes
I Two Hundred Thousand Men Now Working on Lines
of Transportation Must Seek Employment Elsewhere—(Canadian   Employes Hard   Hit
Harvoy J. Hall, In an interview with the Toronto News, bIiows In a
convincing manner whnt the railway employes have to fear from reciprocity.
Until his retirement from active work, Mr. Hall, wus thc legislative
representative of the Order ot Railway Conductors and watched all legislation at Ottawa ol interest to railway employes. For 22 years he was
a conductor on the Grand Trunk railway antl for two years was au alderman representing ward six in   the council of the city of Toronto.
"In the event of reciprocity passing," said Mr. Mall, "the effect, in
my opinion, on transportation in this city will bo this :
"Bearing in mind thc fact that there Is in the neighborhood of 200,-
000 people employed on railroads and navigation within the Dominion,
those 200,000 are directly or Indirectly maintaining one-tenth of the population of Canada. .
I Buy
Wlll Reduce Number of Employes In Railway Service)
"If reciprocity means what its supporters say it does, that is -ranging the avenue of trade from north to south, instead of east to west, as
at present, it must necessarily reduce the number of employes in the railway service and alBo in navigation.
"That means that there will be fewer engineers, fewer firemen, fewer
conductors, fewer trainmen, and ultimately fewer engines and less necess-
T I  ity for cars. (
''Following along this line, it will mean that there will be fewer
boilermakers, fewer machinists, fewer blacksmiths, fewer carpenters, fewer car-builders and repairers required to do the work for the railway companies of Canada.

Important Letter
Critics Should Take Notice of Certain Facts Contained Herein
To the Editor of "The Prospector"
Dear Sir : —
Will you kindly allow mu n
little space in your columns for a
few words regarding a letter which
appeared in the Oranbrook Herald ol
August 24th, last, entitled "From lt
Lumberman's Point of  View."
The editor says "dny by day the
list of Tory conveits is being added
to, and the Herald takes special
pleasure in Introducing certain correspondence, which bus recmtly past;
ed between Mr. Y. Lund of Wnrdner,
and Hon. Frank Oliver of Bdmcnton,
and Mr. J. R. Jaynes, of Calgary,
which shows clearly where the old-
time Tory war-horse stands in the
present campaign," etc., etc.
Let us see what an "old-time Tory'
this Mr. Lund is.
If my memory serves me riglit    it
         13 years ago,     or
during construction of the ('row's
NeBt branch, that the firm of Breck-
enbrldge & Lund, then of Dakota, received thc contract for thc construction of a portion of this road, and
alter its completion they were ao
taken up with thc possibilities nnd
future of this portion of Cana la that
they decided to locate here

Mr. Otis Staples *;ays in a letter
to the press thnt the Mountain Lumbermen's Association have forwiul-'d
resolutions to Ottawa objecting to
the reciprocity treaty,
N'ow to Mr. Lund again, he tays in
his letter to Mr. Jaynes (and tno can
imagine his dreamy tone as he dictates tbis letter to bin stenograph-i)
"We who have caHt our lot in tbe ;ar
north in a cold- rugged and in many
instances, disagreeable c Innate.
should insist upon having and en-
'joying all the luxuries nnd comforts
of the commodities that are produced in thc sunny south, etc., etc." It
seems rather funny thnt Mr. Lund,
with all the means at his disposal,
should endure the cold, rugged and
disagreeable * climate any longer,
wben he could easily go to the "sunny south" and live there, however,
he seems to like it and thrive under
such disadvantages, as he hns erected a vcry spacious mansion at Wardner costing many thousands of dollars, and hns an office in this city to
dispose of his large interests of thousands of acres of farm and fruit
lands, this of course would mean
that he wants others to come and
share his discomforts in tbis "cold,
hus gained nigged and disagreeable climate."

Bodwell stated that the Government
of Oanada knowing th.it there were
not sufficient laborers in Cannda, to
expedite railway work had se it   out

Now as a matter of fact it would
take a man coming into Canada from
another country, n couple of years
at least to decide which party he
would support (after taking out the
necessary naturalization papers) and
as the present party lines in B.C.
huve only been during the last three
parliaments, or less than nine years,
it will readily be seen that "the old
time Tory war-horse" is really less
1 than nine years old.
Mr. Lund has admitted himself that
really he did not have any marked
Consequently the .trades must suffer   owing   to    the   great   surplus   that
would be thrown on the market.
"The supporters of the pact may claim that the railways are not
making any serious,objections or putting up any great opposition to It.
The majority of the Intelligent electors of the country, however, understand tbe relationship existing between governments and railroad companies. It is usually better for them to pursue a neutral course rather
than to demonstrate outwardly their opposition to any measure that a
government may attempt to put upon the statute books."

Canadian Employes Will Lose If Freight Is Driven South to
Wisconsin Central
On this point, in discussing ths question with a prominent C.P.R. official, be claimed that the C.P.R. were largely independent of these conditions owing to their absorbing ot the Wisconsin Central railway, which
gives them an entrance into Chicago. They also have their road into St.
Paul from both thc east and west. This will give them a large proportion of the business, but it must be remembered that if the freight goes that way that many of the Canadian railway employes must lose.
Labor Day was royally celebrated
: in Kootenay today. Hundreds of
i Nelson citizens crowded special
steamers to picnics at Proctor, organized by the Nelson aerie of Ragles. One of the features of the day
at Proctor was to be a meeting addressed by M. A. Macdonald of
Cranbrook   on   behalf   of Dr. King,
would mean the best advantage to
himself". Now being manager of a
U.S. company be thinks he had better come out and support the pi.Hoy
of reciprocity because perhaps his'
company would expect it of him.
Is it not strange that tbe Herald

climate is hard to beat and a letter
of this kind that he writes, go!ng
broadenst over the land would do
considerable damage to our district,
and offset the publicity work of our
various boards of trade, etc.
Mr. Lund says, "nor is there any
reason why otir great wheat crop a-
bout which we so much boast, should
be forced to move In certain directions, largely through iniquitous and
improper    legislation." Just    so,
that is what the great Conservative
leader, Mr. Uorden says, "The iniquitous and improper legislation should
be done away with." It must be remembered that sucb legislation is
the result of the Liberal Government's I'dorts and Mr. Uorden bas
as one of the principal planks In the
platform of the Liberal Conservative
pnrty the re-adjustment of such "iniquitous legislation."
Notice the "special pleasure" of the
editor of The Herald when he pounces upon a letter of even a "light
weight" In the opposition camp telling of his renouncing his little jrlri-
cipals In favor of reciprocity. Vou
will remember thc statement of the
editor of The Herald, when he assumed the control of that paper, that
"The Herald would he an independent publication," Ha ! ba ! isn't

A Duke In Canada.
Canada u to huve among its sum*

own eatate near Calgary, une who
holds the highest rank in the peerage
ul tlie United Kingdom, The summer
visitor will be L'ri-itutrtie Sutherland*
Leveson*Oower (pronounceu Loaaoii
GoreJ luurth Duke oi Sutherland,
whose title ol earl was conferred nearly 700 years ago. 'ihe duke is the
largest land owner in Great Britain,
nis estates in Kngland and Scotland
aggregating 1,308,000 acres. The Scot-
tisti tenants live :n the bleakest and
must barren part of the Highlands,
where the struggle for existence is a
hard one. Lust yeur the duke, with
the idea ol establishing colonies ol
his Scottish tenantry in the Canadian
West, where tiieir toil would be more
handsomely rewarded, buught 260,000
acres of laud iu Alberta and British
Columbia, near the route of the Grand
Trunk Pacific. The land purchased
is of two kinds, oue suitable tor fruit
culture, the other for mixed farming.
Une hundred families were sent out,
aud settled ou the land laat yea>. During his visit this summer the duke
intends to personally study the conditions of tiie people and to supervise
the distribution ot the laud. He will
likely be accompuuied by the duchess,
who is a sister of the present Earl of
Kosslyn, the peer who was an actor
for some years, and will be remembered by many readers who saw a
real live earl periortinug on the stage.
Tapestries May L«vs England.
Unless some effort is made to retain
the famous Mottlake tapestries, after
Raphael's oartOOUS, It seems probable
that they will Hud their way to America, as it Is understood that the Duke
of Rutland, their present owner, has |
received an offer Irom that country to
purchase them for $75,000, and neith- j
er South Kensington nor the National
Art Collectors' Fund, al tno ugh very
anxious to secr.re them tor the nation,
are in a position to exceed this offer.
These tapestries are an example of
an art lost to England since the closing of the famous Mortlake tapestry
works over 200 years ago. The only
two specimens of this work belonging
to the public are at the Victoria and
Albert Museum, and are far inferior
to these Belvoir Castle tapestries. The
one about to be purchased for 8outh
Kensington was burned in the Brussels' Ure laat year.
These seven pieces are in an excellent state oi preservation. They were
made at Mortlake for King Charles
I. and subsequently sold by Oliver
Cromwell to Lord Haddon. They hung
for many years in Haddon Hall, and
came into the possession of the Duke
of Rutland's family with that famous
building. They are now in the chapel
at Belvoir Castle.

ed at his actions, inquired:
"What is the matter? What on i

"Killing Chinamen," was the quick [

The Biggest of All Nests.
The nests of the jungle-fowl, so-called, in Australia are not only the largest of nests, but the heaviest as well.
These nests are built in the form
of great mounds, the average measurement in height being fifteen feet. In
circumference they are about one hundred and fifty teet. They are constructed in secluded, sheltered spots,
and are skillfully interwoven with
leaves, grass and twigs, together with
such other suitable material aa the
fowl has been able to obtain.
The bush turkey employs a similar
system in the construction of its nest,
though its home is more comprehensive in design. The shape is pyramidal. Australian naturalists aver that
the nests of the bush turkeys are
sometimes so large that the services
of several men are required to move

school with a very extensive one,

she had to sit. The teacher, seeing
this, said to her, "Gang awa' horn)

This was followed instantly by a buffet on tlie side ul the head.  "Will he
have an end uooH No," said the
boy, aud the master was satisfied.

Here is thc platform to the carrying out of which Mr. R. L. Borden
Is pledged if returned to power :
1. A thorough reorganization of
the method hy which public expenditure iB supervised. Tbe increase in
what is known as ordinary controllable expenditure from $21,500,000 in
1896, to nearly $74,000,000 in 1911,
is proof of extravagance beyond any
possible denial.
2. The granting of their nainr.il
resources to the prairie provinces.
A. The construction of thc Hudson
May Railway, and its operation by
an Independent commission.
I. The control and operation by
the state ot terminal elevators.

No French Ship of the Type Yet
Exactly one hundred uhips of the
Dreadnought type arc now built,
building or ordered for the navies of
tbe world. The number is spread
over practically the whole ot the
world thirteen nations contributing
towards it. The first Dreadnought
waB begun in 1905. In the present
year no lewer than thirty-three
Dreadnoughts will have been begun
although this Includes three or four
units whose keels may not be laid
until early in   1912.
The increase of the participants in
the Dreadnought race has been equally striking. In 1905 we hnd the
field to ourselves, the United States
joining in tbe following year. Germany und Brazil entered in 1907—it
is well to remember In comparing the
Meets of Britain nnd Germany that
we had two year's start. In 1908
no new Powers entered tho field, but
1909 saw the advent of Spain, Italy,
and Russia. Last year France, Austria and the Argentine Republic laid
down their first ships uf the new type
nud in the present year Turkey nnd
Chili have joined 'the Dreadnought
Of the one hundred now built,
building or to ho laid down this year
Germany nnd ourselves share more
than a hall. Our own tolal is -10,
to which mny be added the two
building for oversea service; while
Germany takes 21, so that, our advantage over this one Power is a
hare three to two. Austria and
Italy will each have four Dreadnoughts under construction hy the
end of this yeur, so tbnt the total
for, tbe Triple Alliance is 29—against
our own 'At, three of which, including the RJast Indies flagship, are for
oversea service. In contrast to
these aggregate figures, however, it
must he noted that wc have fourteen
Dreadnoughts completed to six for
Germany, Italy and Austria,
The Unitod SlfiLcs holds third plnce
among tbo Dreadnought Powers, with
a total of twelve ships, and she is
beginning to ho closely pressed hy

year, has raised her total lo seven.

j Some of the differences between in-
. dividual ships arc worth noting. Tbe
I largest completed Dreadnought—and
I also the most powerful—is the Ger-
,man battleship Thuringen, displacing
,22,800 tons and armed with twelve
12.2 in. and fourteen 5.9 In. and
'fourteen 3.4 in. guns.
| Most costly of all tbe Dreadnoughts
are the Russian vessels. Tbe original estimate for these ships was £2,-
'280,000 each, but It was recently
| stated hy tbo Russian Minister of
Marine that they would cost £1,200,-
■000. Britain, Germany and Japan
are tbe only nations building cruisers
of the Dreadnought type.
There are various sizes of guns In
the main batteries, the 12 in. heing
as yet the standard. In our own
ships, us also in tbe .lapnuesc, 13.5
in, nre being mounted In the newer
vessels, and Chili has nlso adopted
this calibre. Germany stnrted with
11 in. bas already advanced to 12.2
|in., and will put 14 In. in Inter ships
This calibre hns also been adopted in
the United States for tbe ships of
ilnst year's nnd Nubseuuent programs.
The system of. placing three guns in
I a turret is being carried out in the
! ships of Italy, Austria and Russia,
and will be adopted in this year's
United States vessels.

Sunday, August G, was the 91st
birthday of Lord Strathcona, Canada's veteran and honored representative In London. Western Canadians
generally joined in congratulations
to their old friend, Donald A. Smith
The following article, headed "The
End of a -Long and Honored Career,"
iB trom tbe most recent issue of
Everybody's Weekly, London, England :
The retirement of Lord Strathcona
from the post of high commissioner,
for tbe Dominion of Canada suggests
an outline of his career, surely one
of tbe most extraordinary any living
'man has experienced.
| Just ns he is about to reach the
lage of 91, Lord Strathcona has resigned, to the regret of every Oana-
' dian, the high conimissionership of
1 tbe Dominion. Thim ends the public
| career of thc great empire builder
'of our time. Whnt a marvellous life
.of adventure his hns been !
He was born In 1820, the year of
the death of George III, to whom
was mainly due tbe loss of our American colonies. Donald Alexander
Smith, ns be was known for many
years, was brought up In humble circumstances at Forres, in the Scottish Highlands. Thc fact that Ills
uncle was a fur trader in the service
of the Hudson Uay Company led to
bis becoming.also, at tbe age of 11,
a H.B.C, man. "When I went to
Canada," be said lately, "I took my
tlrst Boa voyage. It too1! fifty days,
and the clipper ship in which I sal
ed, of 800 tons or thereabouts, was
a considerable vessel in tbose dnys."
Tbis happened in 1838, when Queen
Victoria bad ouly been a few months
on the throne. Doesn't it seem
strangely remote ? The young adventurer from Morayshire wos sent
into tho frozen wilderness of Labrador, and he served there for thirteen
years. Most of his time was spent
In trading in furs witb tbe Red Indians and the Eskimos. Donald Smith
slowly distinguished hiimclf by his
business ability. No matter how
poor was the post to which he waB
; sent,he always managed to show a
balance on the right side uf the
ledger. He won over the natives hy
turning doctor, and curing the injured and ailing; and be placed his comrades by proving that potatoes and
vegetables could he grown In the Arc-
: tic climate,
By sheer, grinding, hard labor,
amid the peril and solitude of the
northern desert lhe young Highlander rose to a chief leadership and to
the chief factorship, Ho wont on
working and in 1808, nt the ago of
48, bo won the highest position open
to a servant of the H.ll.C Ho wns
made resident governor of Montreal,
Most men In his position would
then bave thought of saving mouey
.with a view to their retirement, but
Donald Smith, on reaching middle
nge, merely prepared for the tremendous work of consolidating aud developing Oanada.
j In 18C9 Louis Reil headed a rebellion of half-breeds, and captured tbe
place now famous as Winnipeg.   Reil
'was backed by the French-Canadians,
and, he meant to make Rupert's iJind
jan independent French state. Some
Americans took part in the movement, with a view to getting the territory included in the United States.
!But Donald Smith hastened to the
scene of the rebellion—two thousand
miles awny from Montreal. Unarmed
nnd alone be faced the rebels, and
just by his ' speeches he undermined
completely the power of "President
Reil," and. the dangerous insurrection
'was put down without bloodshed. For
Roll having lost his fellows through
the way in which Donald Smith had
calmed them, lied from the fort as
Colonel Garnet Wolseley arrived with
a brigade of soldiers.
j After his success in the Red River
rebellion, Donnld Smith was mado
chief commissioner tor Northwest Canada, Ho left tbe service of tbc H.
B.C. in 1874, and with his draper
cousin,George Stephen (now Lord
Moiintstephen), he acquired an Interest In the llnnk of Montronl. He
had now planned out the great work
with which his name will forever he
connected—the Canadian Pacific rall-
wny—uml he was awaiting an opportunity to begin It.
Ho began by buying up a half-built
bankrupt American railway, the St.
Paul and Pacific. Hy moans of this
be linked Manilohn with the south
and tbo wost. Then, in 18KI), ho
contracted with the Canndinn government to construct a railway running
from ocean to ocean nnd opening up
whnt is now the granary of the world

Chatter and Chaff
Earnest and Facetious
By Paul  Spyglass
Special to| "PROSPECTOR"
As far ns can he ascertained, no
one has Buffered from any kind of
mental dyspepsia through reading the
llrst, instalment, of CHATTER aud
CHAFF, which is, in itself, extremely gratifying. The heart of tbo
"chef de cuisine" rcjoiceth thereat
and ho, to give some outward and
visible sign of the great gratitude
which rageslwlthln him hereby draw-
etb the attention of his numerous
readers to a couple of practical hints
for amateur drawing-room conjurers.
Blindfold your bust and ask bim to
sit in a chair facing the company.
Then, to deceive tbe audience, make
two or three passes over his head
with your hands. Telling him to
keep perfectly still, borrow a long
stool hatpin from one of the Indies
present, and, approaching tho I Und
folded man cautiously from the rear,
run thc pin sharply into his leg. To
the surprise of those presont he will
jump as though shot.
Tottie Highkick, who has been invited to a party, is anxious to get
(wise) to the latest egg trick. Sure,
delighted to oblige a lady.—Borrow
n tall Imt from one of tho audience.
Pass it round so that all may see
it empty- Into the hat then break
a dozen eggs, stir tbem with your
magic wand, nnd pass round once
more so that all may examine it. To
the surprise of all those present, it
will be seen that tbe lint is no longer empty, hut contnins n number of
broken eggs.
What you want somo more ? Since
you are so importunate, Lottie,
here's another good trick, and tbis,
remember, is absolutely the last I
shall give you without payment.-
Collect all the watches and jewelry
of the audience. Tie them securely
In a large siU handkerchief and
throw them violently out of tbe window. To the surpriiie of all present
tbe articles will disappear. This
splendid trick is worked more successfully if you hnve a confederate
outside, but be careful you're not
watched by Chief Dow.
The terribly sud death of Frishie,
the aviator which occurred last week
at Morton County Fair, Kansas, illustrates mans' inhumanity to man.
.loaded by derisive sneers and mucking taunts, a brave man lost his life
in the'presence of his wife an 1 children. Frishie made the ascent to
avoid an angry demonstration although he knew perfectly well the
chances he was taking inasmuch as
the mechanism of his aeropHne was
faulty. The crowd—irresponsible
and unreasonable like most crowds-
mistook the btrdman's caution for
cowardice. The noiBy oxcltablo
fools who shrieked the insulting and
unwarranted epithet "fakir," were
morally responsible for his death-
poor unfortunate man. They will
doubtless derive satisfa-itlm fiomthc
thought tbat in addition to witnos-
ing a "flight," tbey assisted in ia-
creasing the number of widows and
orphans, Amidst the pleasantry and
raillery of the "barkers"—amidst tbe
festivity and merry-making, the grim
reaper was at work. Far above the
gleeful shouts of*the cxultingly glad
throng is beard the shrill scream of
the terror-stricken wif*.* as she beholds her husband falling from tht;
Tbose smart Alecks, who make use
of thc expression, "No flies on me,"
can hardly he thinking of the season
of the year, nnd the proximity ot
another bent wave..
Old Sol will soon In cloudless lUes
Shine like a fiery hall,
And there will then be lots of flies,
Upou us nil.
Some bold bad bears—please excuse the unconscious nlliteratlca—
havo invaded tbe chicken-coops at
Mr. C, W. Vaiiderbilt's hunting lodge
on Mount i'lsgah. Nnturally this
unseemly conduct on tbe part of tbo
boars hns caused Mr. C. W. V. to
loso his temper. After mature deliberation he has planned a tear shoot
and proposes to tnko a number of
his New York friends to participate
In tho fun. Dogs and men have already been engaged to run down the
"omnivorous mammnls" and all the
intrepid Mr. Vanderbilt and bis ei-u-
ally dauntless "dead game sports"
have to do Is to pull the triggers at
a respectable distance. What consummate bravery : It is really as
Tho chap wbo asserts tbat ghoBts
nnd spirits are synonyinical is "'ofl
his rocker." There is a distinct
dilTorenco. For instance, there are
men who are fearfully afraid of
ghosts, but would simply hug tbe
other things to tbeir bosoms.
Mnny folks grumble at the 'pnone
without reason. The telephone, like
many of tbe other blessings of civilisation wasn't of much nccount till
it wns talked ovor.
Despite oft-repeated warnings
through tbo medium of press and
platform those terrible shooting tragedies, in common with bathing nnd
boating fatalities, continue to Increase Whon wlll people realise the
necessity of exercising caution In
the uso of lire-arms? One of the
latent fatal necidents occurred ninety
mllos north of Maple Creek, a few
days ago. when a man named Vol-
man, while shooting at ducks killed
his son and daughter aged nine  and
eleven yenrs. By the irony of fate
the placo wbere the distressing tragedy was enacted is called Happy
Land. lt Is almost Impossible to
conceive the anguish and misery endured hy the unfortunate father when
contemplating the dead bodies ol bis
two children and reflecting on the
awful fact, that tbey met tholr death
hy his own hand. Resorted, forsaken,
—what object desolation and despair.
A duck shooting excursion Is no tit
and proper plnce for children and It
seems a very rash act on the part of
the parent, to permit their presence
Children—especially those of tender
years—should receive the careful guidance nnd protection ot tbeir elders.
To expose them to grave dnnger In
this foolhardy manner Is nothing
short of a criminal oflence and is
deserving of severe censure from all
right-minded people. The "did not
know it was loaded," "saw something moving and flred," "just rocked the boat for a lark," etc., sort
of explanations are contemptibly
poor and untenable excusen and do
not mitigate the disastrous resilts of
such crass folly.
Some people labor undir tho foolish delusion that animals are tho only  objects  of  persecution  in  naive.
Tbose who hold this erroneous (pinion    would   do   well    to study that
branch of tbe    science of agriculture
which relates    to    tbe cultivation of
kitchen  gardens.     However,   let   tbe
vegetables speak for themselves :-—

So the good old starched white
shirt is doomed. The Men's Dress
Reform Society of Berlin says so-
Of course no sane person would have
the temerity to dispute their ultimatum. The advanced thinkers who
comprise the membership of the afore
mentioned association take exception
to the general system of dress now
in vogue and are anxious to enlighten we ordinary every-day mortals oa
the basic principles of right action in
the matter of clothing ourselves properly. I'm sure we are very much
indebted to the Men's Dress Reform
Society. Tbe self-constituted leaders of fashion-—and there are actually one hundred of them—say that the
starched white shirt has to go—so
that settles it once and for all. However, in warning the few paltry hundreds of thousands of "common or
garden" individuals who still continue to wear what our distinguished
critics designate "armour-plated
abominations" (either through ignorance or in open defiance of the decree ?) I feel that I have faithfully
performed my duty. N.B.—The
DresB Reform Society of Berlin has
a membership of at least one hundred. Fancy that. Now will you he
good. 1
day should have a decided salutary
eflect on the rising generation by inculcating potent patriotic feelings.
Surely, tbey may possibly argue,
no citizen possessing a deep and
genuine love for bis country, would
object to losing an eye or a few lingers, when'he reflects that this trilling
inconvenience furnishes the loyal
young people with such an excellent
opportunity (on this one great d-iy
of rejoicing) to give an "ocular" demonstration ot how much they value
their Independence. Besides this, let
t be clearly understood that they
are not alone in thoir glory. Oh,
No,—perish tho thought. There are
other heroes. Great Scott, lots of
them. Authentic official statistics
prove that during thc past nine
years one thousand, one hundred aud
seventy-nine persons have been killed
and thirty-seven thousand, four hundred and ten injured for thiB noble
cause. Why not carry a tally paid-
up "Fourth of July" Insurance policy in your side pocket. You never

Police Commissioner Waldo is on
the war-path and intends to make it
bot for the bomb-throwing Italians
who infest New York City. The
commissioner is ahout to inniigurate
drastic policy—with the assistance
of all the Italian detectives and hopes to decrease the outrageously wicked crimes which lately have assumed
alarming proportions. This looks
like a case of locking the stable door
after the horBe has bolted. Instead
of devoting so much time and money
to the eradication of the elect would
it not be infinitely better to remove
tbe cause by the exercise of an exactly defined and strenuously enjoined system of personal survoillencc
over unnaturalized foreign ■ residents?

Just what Jack Johnson intends
doing is a good deal of a conundrum.
Nothing much has been hoard recently of his match with Petty Officer
Cur ran. This was to have taken
place ot the football grounds In Dublin and was to have been managed by
Flanagan, who acted as Johnson's
officer towards tho close of the training days at Reno.
Everything is done with "a hustle
on" in a lumber camp. Rest, refreshment, and recreation follow naturally. Time was when the big
companies regaled their men on lean
fare, but it paid poor dividends, so
now they cater like Lyons'. Hot
meat and vegetables, pastries, pies,
nnd cakes, stacks of bread and slabs
of butter, plenty ot relishes and oth-
"fixings," and the everlasting
strong green tea; this three times a
day accounts for the swift destruction of mnny a forest giant. A short
nterval of smoking, and the "walking boss" puts his head into tho
hunk-bouse door, roaring in stentorian tones, "R-o-1-1 o-ut." We accordingly rolled and after a abort
walk through the snow came to some
magnificent timber. Here roads
were cut in alt directions, and operations in full swing. Armed with a
long cross-cut saw, two men would
attack a tree, a towering column
which absolutely dwarfed tbem. On
thc side they wished it to fall they
llrst cut" a third way through, then tt
little higher up un tbo othcr side
sawed steadily. Presently tho tree
trembled, the topmost branches shivered, and a shower of dead twigs
came tumbling down. Now a bright
look-out was kept for "sailors"—-
lead houghs which defy all the
prescience crash earthwards when the
storms of winter, hut with uncanny
last moment approaches. Still the
saw worked on, swish-swish-swish Into tbe very core, until tbere was a
faint crack, another louder, and the
trunk was seen to topple.
'Ware timber!" shouted a score of
hoarae throats as, tbe air singing to
ts passage, tbe great tree fell, and
the forest reverberated to its final
thud, while the snow shot up in cascades all round. So nicely can
Lumber Jack guagc his work that a
tree rarely falls a foot beyond its appointed place. Occasionally, however, the wind works mischief, and one
lodges. Then its support has to be
felled, and since no man may say
exactly how two locked trees, hopelessly caught, were being tacked. As
they swayed over, one sprang back
and fell in the opposite direction.
There was a wild scramble to safety
but. one of the men ran straight a-
long under the falling trunk. In
answer to warning shouts he leaped
sideways, not a moment too soon,
for a small branch ripped bis shirt
from off him; nor could you easily
forget the look on his face as he
jumped. Thc others, however, took
t as fortunes of war, familiarity, as
usual, breeding contempt. Once
down, the tree was trimmed by
'swampers" sawed into lengths, and
'skidded" to tho iced road. The
dexterity of the "skidders" was wonderful. With a pair of horseB hitched on to a log, they went off at the
trot, threading their way through
innumerable stumps half bidden in
the4 deep suow and often standing on
tlie rolling convulsive log. A slip
would have meant a broken leg, but
they never slipped.
It gives you thrills of destructive
bliss to chop a big tree down, and
thero was something enticingly free
and wild, and yet sociable, about thc
day, so no wonder tho homesteaders
love it after their lonely summers.
(Many homesteaders choose thiB method of adding, to their capital, wben
tbeir services are not much needed,
during tbe winter months, on their
farms.) The woods, too, are beautiful beyond belief. Sometimes every
twig sparkling and glittering with
rime until the trails are dazzling
white tunnels and the forest outBhin-
es Aladdin's cave; sometimes the Betting sun outlining the trees in fire
until every twig glows like molten
metal, and ever in the clear air the
dark spruce and silver birch making
the scene resemble fairylgnd, while at
night the Northern Lights tall down
the sky in a shower of fireworks.

Hut Ind. favored him. After pining
twu years for his lost love (hat he bud

It was no les* sti authority than Mr.

more numerous and more complicated

a questi in of rules.

lie pointed out, was distinctly in tiie

head, spoiling his shot.
A cow Is the heroine of a story—

the cow's mouth, the ball staying
there, 'rhe man who made this notable shot hit on the Ingenious idea
of getting a bril ha nt score for tbe

green, and persuading it to drop tbe
ball in the hole. This was eventually
accomplished, bj means ol bis heaviest club, and tlie player turned triumphantly lo his opponent.
"My lode! ' he exclaimed. "Did it

"Excuse me." waatheoalm answer,
"I think th« hob is mine! You didn't do a in one. 1 distinctly saw you

in spite of young Asquith's brilliance
in the school*room, that the boy who

Jessed that such an ambition never

■■ who seek to keep alive the memory
; of the founder—on the occasion oi
his being inaile Home Secretary, that
occasionally on his way from school
he would look with a 'sense of awestruck solemnity at the House of Parliament and the members entering,
little thinking of the part he himself
would play there in the future.'
"1  cannot  say  that young Asquith
was  popular.    He   was  not good  at
I games.     He   didn't   like   them.     He
. seemed  to stand  aloof, a.id acquired
\ the reputation of being what we term

) And as the majority of the boys of

1 lated that, as president of the society,
he often attended the debates; but as
his duties were practically nominal,
and as time with him was very precious, it was his custom to take a
batch of exercises from the schoolroom and correct these while presiding over the debates. But when Mr.
Asquith entered the society he became so interested in the eloquence
of the future Prime Minister that he
found it dillieuli to concentrate hi*
mind on the exercises, and, finally,
whenever young Asquith held the
flour, Ur. Abbott was obliged to re
sign himself to willing attention.
"1 have uo doubt that Mr. Asquith

Porcupine Fire  la a Warning ta All
I Canadians.
Tn   Porcupine   the terrible   loss of
life iu the great fire dwarfs all other
j considerations.    On   account   of  this
] loss, rather than because of the value
, of the property destroyed, it is timely
I to point out the absolute, necessity of
i greater expenditure upon   fore?t protection.    The methods thot will pro-
l teet the forest from fire will save the
lives of the people dwelling near the
1 forest.    The  Porcupine calamity  will
! do  much  to create a  public opinion
! that will support the Government in
I any  expenditures   that   it   may  deem
necessary   lor  the   protection  of   the
I forests in the north.    It  is a mistake
I to hold the great heat responsible for
I tha  holocaust   at   Porcupine.    Unless
j the kindling i- ready the match will
1 not  light  the   lire,   and   the terrible
! heat  can  only  be  considered   as the
j match to the   kindling   already   pre-
1 pared by the carelessness   ol   prospectors and others, (»r it is the dry
debris  lying  on  the  ground  ami  not
the standing trees that provides the
great fuel for the bush tiros.
In a report oil the subject Issued
by the Department of Agriculture at
Washington tive necessary measure*
for the protection nf the forest are
given, Bays Mk< Mail ami Kmpirc, as
Tho disposal ol slash from logging
The development of roads, trail*
and tire lines .
Tlie establishment of lookout sta*
tions and telephone lines,
The organization of a protective
supervisory  and lire-fighting force,
The control of insects which kill
trees and cause an accumulation of
dead, inflammable timber.
No one   nf   these   measures   alone
will protect a forest, nor can one of
them   be   safely   omitted.    With   all
these    measures   In   operation   and
! carried   out   by   an     lequate   force,
such  tires  as  that  of  the   Porcupine
would   be   impossible.    To  put   into
effect such a scheme a great expenditure  of  money  would   be  necessary,
hut uo district in the world is better
able to afford it than Ontario's min*
! ing district.    There   has   heen   more
i than   enough    silver   taken   out   of
- Cobalt to give forest protection from
■ North Bay to James Bay.
Apart  Trom    the  necessity  of   pre-
j tection  to human life, the forests ol
i the north are well worth preserving
| for their own  sakes.    Until  a   few
! years ago it was popularly supposed
' that  our  timber  was   almost   as  in-
i exhaustible   as our   supply of   fresh
| water, and even yet the official esti*
mates of the remaining timber convey  this impression  to anyone  who
! is not a lumberman.   We have stand*
; ing  in  Canada  something  less  than
j 2,000 billion feet of timber, including
j the very low grades.    It seems a lot,
j but it is not much more than half
the estimated  amount   at one   time.
What we have cut anu used amounts
to little compared with what has been
lost by fire.   In our greatest lumbering region, the Ottawa valley, it has
been calculated   that  tor  every   foot
that   has   been   cut   by   lumbermen
twenty   feet has been   destroyed   by
fire.    A  recent bull tin from the for*
estry  branch   of   the Department  of
the Interior says that the loss to the
public treasury due to forest fires is
not less than $1,042,500,000.
The same report declares that the
forest.fires that are occurring are not
so much the result of the absence of
laws as the lack of enforcement *>I
existing laws. To be properly enforced, these laws must have back of
them the support of the people, for
without it Legislatures will not vote
the g:nerous sums necessary for
carrying on the work. It also points
out that reforestrution haa its limits,
and that it cannot undo the work of
a disastrous fire. Not only are the
standing trees destroyed, but often
the soil is rendered permanently unfit for growing another forest . This
is because the humus in the ground
Is consumed. In cases where the soil
is not spoiled for producing a second
growth tt is generally found that the
forest succeeding a burned pine or
spruce district is made up of inferior varieties of trees, on account of
the fact that aspen, poplar, birch and
jack pine produce more seeds than
white pine and spruce and scatter
them over a wider area.
The effect of forests upon rainfall
and climate generally is pretty well
understood. It has been discussed
previously and need not be pointed
out again. The fact to bear in mind
is that wisdom twenty years from
now will not correct any neglect of
the forests to-day; and that there Is
considerable neglect ia indicated by
the following passage from the report
of the Department of the Interior:
"Of all the civilised nations in the
northern hemisphere, Canada is doing the least to treat the public lands
as a permanent asset." When it
comes to be a question of the lives
of citltens. as in Porcupine, Canada
ia not likely to remain indifferent.—

.Tha Man Who May lucrttd Whyta
1 In the Weit.
I    Sir Thomas Tail, who is spoken ol
| as the probable successor of Sir William  Whyte   as   vice-president   and
western administrator of the C.P.R ,
1 is a big Canadian railroad man. about
whom little   is   known   by   Ontario
people at lnrge.   Almost every other
prominent railroader   in tbe Dominion is the son of poor and unknown
parents, but Sir Thomas had for hia
! rather  a   prominent Quebec*  judge—
i Chief   Justice   Sir   Melbourne   fait,
who for years was a law partner in
Montreal of the late Sir John Abbott.
He   also   received   the   benefit  of   a
sound education.    Still he stnrtcd it
the bottom of the ladder.   He wasn't
a water boy or an engine wiper, but
. he began work for the C.P.R. as a lad
I in the audit department of the road
at Montreal, at three or four dollars
a week.    Thnt he became one of Ihe
lug men in the railroad business Is
something entirely  to his credit, for
I railroading in this country Is a lino
. of work in which only ability counts
{iu the securing of fat jobs.
1    Thomas Tait was horn In 1864, in a
little place culled Melbourne, in the
[ Province    of    Quebec;    and,    oddly
, enough, he won his chief distinction
in after years in the larger Melbourne
j around on the other side ot the world.
[When   Sir William   Van   Home   ar-
| rived in Montreal to become general
manager of tbe C.P.R., he asked the
company's   chief   legal  adviser,   Bir
John Abbott, to find   him   a suitable
young man as private secretary.   Sir
John recommended his partner's son,
young Tait.    So   the latter   left hia
small job in   the   audit   department
and became the big chief's confidential man.   J!e made good and stayed
on the job until 1887. hy which time
the C.P.R. was doing business as a
transcontinental  line.    Then he was

Moose Jaw, in which position he had
to have an eye over nearly the whole

In 1903 Tait was offered the Important post of chairman of the Victoria
Railway Commission, a Government-
owned system in Australia. He accepted the offer, and his management
was highly successful. During his
last year of control the Victorian
railway lines showed a surplus of
$1,000,000, instead of the large deficit
which used to pile up every year before his coming. He became dissatisfied, so it was said, with the careless.
ness of some of the road's minor officials, which resulted in some bad
accidents, and he resolved to give up
his control of the Government-owned
road. He resigned in November,

While at the Temple he began hi.
social life. Without any visible
means of supporting his gay life, hil
companions suspected bim of being t
social highwayman. In a very short
time he was regarded as an authority
on dress, manners, and general aty.a
in fashion.
Becoming disgusted with the suspicions be had aroused, he left London and settled in Buth, tben one of
the poorest and meatiest cities in
England. When William III. came
to the throne tbe members of the
Inns of Court gave un elaborate
pageant, and Nash was chosen to
have full charge of ull the details.
The King was so delighted with tbe
affair that he offered to raise Nash to
the knighthood.
In 1704 he was appointed "master
of ceremonies" at Buth, where many
people flocked in tbe summer to drink
the waters. His luws ol dress and
ceremony were so strictly enforced
tbat he was styled "King of Bath."
Under his rule ni rank would protect
the offender, nor dignity ot station
condone a breach of the law.
Among the laws he made for the
balls and assemblies were tbat gentlemen should not wear swords es
fiart of their reuulnr dress. He made
he duel so ridiculous that men refused to fight. It also became neces-
aary for men to wear shoes and lone:
stockings, instead ol boots, at the
Bath assemblies.
Nash desired the Duchess ol
Queensbury. who appeared at a dress
ball in an apron ot point lace, said
to be woitb 500 guineas, to take il
off, which she did, at tbe same time
desiring his. acceptance ot it. When

That the Held crops ol the Dominion

The Canadian output haa decreased
from 04,646 barrels in 1BS9 to 38,635
barrels ln 1909, in spite of the fact
that prices have risen 240 per cent, in

the industry is attributed largely to
the long standing dispute over jurisdiction between the Dominion and

Wardner, in the East Kootenay district of British Columbia, and Intends
to establish there the first Canadian

suited to ostrich farming. The native
home of the ostrich is in Southern
Asia and Africa. In South Africa tha
raising of ostriches for tbeir feathers
is an extensive business. A tew

were nearly tour hundred thousand

How Winchester Quns and Cartridges
Ara Made
As the hunting season -vill soon be
here sportsmen generally are thinking of their hunting outfit. This
makes it more opportune to call at
tention to the repeating rifles, repeating shotguns and ammunition of
all kinds manufactured by the Winchester Repeating Arms Company—
the largest manufacturers of arms
and ammunition in the world—which
are justly celebrated for their superiority and reliability. Over two million Winchester guns have been sold
during the forty odd years they have
been upon the market, and today
they nre in general use all over the
world. Having established such a
demand for their guns and ammunition the Winchester Company strive
to maintain them by exercising great
care in the selection of the materials
used, and by employing modern methods and machinery in manufacturing their product. The Winchester
Company employ the leading experts
in gun and ammunition making, and
expend annually a large amount of
money in experimental work and in
perfecting new and desirable types of
guns ana ammunition. By means of
this experimental work and by an exacting system of tests and inspections
embracing every stage of manufacture, from the materials in their
rough state to the finished product,
the Winchester Company are enabled
to keep thoroughly modern in every
way and up to a high degree of perfection. As proof of the superiority
of Winchester cartridges might be
cited -the report of the Board of Government Experts who, after a thorough test of various makes, reported
officially that Winchester rifle cartridges were superior to all others.
This is the second year that Winchester cartridges hnve been so honored. Notwithstanding their superiority und the care taken in manufacturing Winchester guns and ammunition, they cost the consumer no more
than inferior makes. Quality considered, Winchester goods are the
cheapest upon the market. Winchester goods are sold by most all
reputable dealers in hardware and
sporting goods.

Carill.n-Qrenvllle Line It tha Small-
ut In America.
The Carillon-Grenville Railway oi
Canada (once called the Old Sykes
Line), operated in connection with the
Ottawa River Navigation Co.'a bouts
running between Montreal and Ottawa, according to recent press despatches, will soon lose its identity by
being merged into the Cauadiau
Northern system, and will soon become part of the new Ottawa-to-Mont-
real line which the C.N.R. is building
via Huwkesbury. Tliis quaint, illde-
uerdent public railway of bioad-gauge
and wood burners is the smallest rail,
way iu America, und the old engine,
"The Ottawa," is also the oldest iu
America, and once had tlie honor ol
driving the late King Kdward. It wus
built in Liverpool In 1449. Although
still iu good working order to-day, it
is so great a curiosity that American
and English locomotive builders and
railway men have made special trips
to see and ride on this quuint railway built of old Irish broud-gauge
of live feet six inches and used as the
connecting link around the rapids.
There are thirteen miles ol track in
connection with tliis line. The road
is a section only of one which was
begun in 1857 and was to have been
built from Montreal to Ottawa, but
the only part completed by the builder, Mr. William Sykes, the well-
known engineer ot that time, was
thut between Carillon and Urenville,
which in 1863 was' bought trom Mr.
Sykes by the Ottuwu Klver Nuviga-
tion Co.
The old engine of the line presents
a remarkable appeurunce to-day with
the great breadta of beam necessitated
by its broad-gauge and with its old-
fushioued wood-burners and its smokestack somewhat unusual in shape. It
has a cow-catcher on each side, which
proclaims the fact that it can run as
well backwards as forwurds, and it
you look at the ruils you will see that
they are made "U"-sllaped and ot
iron. Therefore there is little danger
ot the engine running off the truck
even if tlle truill does go at the rate of
twenty-six miles an hour. A representative of the lirm of locomotive
builders who supplied it recently mude
a trip to Grenville in order to inspect
it. There ure also a few passenger
and flat cars still in use by the company and a second engine which was
bought from the Urand Trunk Railway some forty years ago when the
Grand Trunk discarded the broad-
gauge ot four feet eight and a hall
inches. This old-timer also presents a
remarkable uppeHranc^. But these
pioneer engines still in use will soon
be discarded, as the trucks will be
rebuilt to standard gauge, and it has
already been suggested that "The
Ottawa" should be presented by the
Hon. Senator Owens, the owner ol the
line, to the "Chateau de Ramezay,"
in Montreal, Carillon, trom which the
quaint train starts, is a delightful
riverside resort at the head of the
Lake of Two Mountains, and is forty-
five miles from Montreal. This
charming little village, with its wide
wuters, has the largest dam on the
continent, built by the Canadian Government at a cost of $1,350,(KJ0. It is
two thousand feet long and twelve
feet high and was commenced in 1873
and finished in 1881.
At a half-yearly meeting of thc
stock-holders of the Chumpluin &
St. Luwrence Railroad in 1848, then
twelve years old, but the oldest railway in Canada, a number ol new
rules, bylaws and regulations were
adopted, which show that already the
company had commenced to dictate
to the public, and the public to encroach upon the company. This was
half a century before the creation of
a Railway Commission.
Several ot these regulations are interesting as indicating the conditions
ol travel at that time. Passengers
were required to procure tickets he-
fur the train started, and to occupy
places in the cars indicated by the
tickets, under a penalty ot ten shillings. The regulations go on to say:
"No person allowed to go upon the
locomotive or tender; no smoking allowed in the first-class cars; no person allowed to go on top ot the passenger curt; no dogs allowed in first-
class cars." The company refused
responsibility for packages of bank
notes placed in charge of its servants,
or lor animals, glass, earthenware,
stoves, marble In slabs or manufactured, and furniture, "which will be
carried at the risk ot the owner."—
H. Gerald Wade in The Globe.
"The trouble in Manitoba corresponds closely to the trouble in
Dakota. Farmers Brc overcropping the
land. They say that they are not,
but I tell them fearlessly that they
are. They are shipping aw.y the
essential element, and they are not
returning it. They are taking what
they call the fibre from th. earth, and
the result is tlie blowing which Is
witnessed every summer. Then, ln addition, there ls, as a result ol the
continual cropping, a lungiis which
attacks the root of the wheat. These
causes will do much to lessen the
yield of wheat this year in this province and the crop will be lest than
the farmers expect."
This is an expression of opinion
from no less an agricultural authority
than Prot. Thomas Shaw, says the
Farmers' Advocate, who has spent
practically all hiB life teaching agricultural conditions.

J. L. Englohart It an Apostle of Grata)
of Public Duty.
The New Ontario fire disaster has
enlarged the acquaintance of the public with one uf tiie most noteworthy
men in the service of tne people—Mr.
J. L. Englehart.
The Temiskaming & Northern Ontario Railway, running from North
Bay to Cochrane, made New Ontario.
It was conceived by Sir George W.
Rosa. His Government built most of
it. Mr. Kuglehart is chairman of Uie
commission which now operates it tot
tha people. When ntws came of the
big tire, the Government guvt Mr.
Englehart authority to act for it in
the crisis. Mr. Kuglehart, from Toronto, telephoned Supt. Black of tbe
T. & N.O.: "See here, we have been
placed in fuH charge of this affair.
Turn the whole luree of the road on
the job and do all you can to prevent
suffering." Then he got busy himself,
arranging quickly for systematic, immediate relief, and advising aa to the
distribution uf the Toronto fund raised for the suffcrug, The sign put up
at Englehart statiuti reading: "No one
need puss by here hungry," and sign*
ed by the chief of the railroad, voices
the sympath) and sense of his policy
ol relief. And it was a fine thing lor
the province thut a man of Mr. Engle
hart s size, in head and heart, was
ready at hand when this emergency
Mr. Englehart was born in Cle\e-
land sixty-four years ago. Starting *.t
an ordinary employe iu an oil concern, he soon became owner of a prosperous oil business of his own. He
'came to Canada iu IttfO, wheu he was
twenty-three, doing business at London aud Hamilton. In 1881 he went
to Petrolea to operate the Imperial
Oil Co., in which his former interests
were incorporated; and he is still vice-
president of that concern. A good oil
mau has to he something of a railroad
man as well. Mr. Englehart is. So
when the Whitney Government was
forming a new T. & N. O. Commission to succeed tiie Ross commission,
,\lr. Englehart was asked to go on the
ooard. He had become a British subject, also a Conservative, and with a
large fortune made, he felt there was
more iu life than piling un more
money. So he accepted Mr. Whitney's
offer, and later became chairman of
the commission.
When he left Petrolea, he presented
the town with his tine home, surrounded by thirty-five acres of beautiful landscape gardens, as a park and
hospital. To him the salary of $5,000
he receives as chairman of the T. &
N.O. Commission is a small matter.
He serves lhe public because he
thinks the work is useful—really
worth while. They say he knows
every spike in the road. Certainly he
knows all the men working on it, and
whenever an employe makes a good
showing he receives a cordial letter
from Mr. Englehart telling him his
work has been appreciated. The combination of competence and generosity shown in his grasp of the fire
disaster is shown in everything he
does. Would that we had more men

It ia to be hoped that reciprocity
i will not be defeated in the coining
[elections in Oanada, where it in now
the main political issue. That thia
large-minded measure nmy Ite vetoed
by the popular vote uf the Canadian
people it is impossible to believe.
The result of the elections will be
watched for as eagerly in this couu- i
try as they will be in Canada.
Ho far-seeing and statesmanlike
a measure has seldom been conceived
by American statesmen or invested
with the sanction of law by the American Congress. The mere commercial aspect of reciprocity should be,
and is, a minor consideration. Higher than tbis is the drawing closer
together politically of the two countries which will he the result of
triumph for reciprocity.
Most of our contemporaries in the
press are publishing editorials in
Which it is repeated again and again
that a political union of Canada and
the United States is not the ulterior object of reciprocity. These editorials arc written no doubt for Canadian consumption, but WK DO
TO THB UNITED STATES, an object tbe accomplishment of which
must be thc governing motive of this
country in Its attitude toward its
northern neighbors.
We see no reason fur the hypocrisy
and dissimulation which form the
keynote of the expressed opinions of
many of our newspapers on the reciprocity issue. Reciprocity is de-
Blrable mainly because it will be a
splendid landmark in the progress of
the American continent.
At the present time the great
plains Of western Cnnnda ure very
thinly Inhabited, Alberta, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Asslnll ola, all
have millions of acres of rich and
fertile land, whlrh in the course of
time will be densely populated. While
this territory remains a port of tho
Dominion the progress of western
Canada must bo Blow and laborious.
Woro it part or tho United States it
growth would he the marvel of the
world. Lordly commonwealths, part
of thc great American Union, would
rise and flourish. Magnificent cities
would spring up, where now are
thing but Isolated hamlets.
Every thoughtful nnd patriotic
Americun hopes for n favorable verdict on reciprocity hy the Canadian
What price will the Canadian wheat
when sold to tbe United States millers bring ? Asks the Lethbridge Herald.
The Prospector answers the question as follows : "The price ij noted
at Chicago, less freight rate from
point of shipment."
To substantiate tbe above we will
way that tbis is the basis of price
all over the United States.
Wheut today, September 6th, is
selling in eastern Washington at 66
cents. What is the Canadian price.
Under the reciprocity pact, the so-
called big market of the United States, will regulate tbe Canadian price,
and the grain growers of tbe Northwest will in the end, get the worst
of the deal, both in price nnd the
grading of his wheat.
To tbe farmer wo would say, "Cut
this article out, put it in your hat,
r some other place, nnd if reciprocity wins out, compare price of
wheat with the above fact.

Supporters1 of reciprocity say :
"Give us ii trial and if it docs not
prove satisfactory we can withdraw
from (It next year or the year afler,
or at any time we choose." Conservatives say : "If we once accept reciprocity we shall find ourselves so
tied up in our trade relations wltb
the United States tbat. withdrawal
will be impossible."
Premier McDride was tbe lirst public man in Cnnnda to declare in hia
manifesto, published the same day
as tbe news of the proposed reciprocity agreement was telegraphed to
tbe coast, that grave national and
imperial Issues were involved.
He uttered a word of warning
which re-echoed throughout Canada
and urged those who might be reached by his manifesto to weigh wed the
ultimate consequence <>f a treaty
with the United States.
Whon Mr. Borden took the same
line of argument as Mr. McDride and
was followed in turn by all the great
.speakers of the Conservative party
and by the Conservative peers, even

The King's Little Joke
King (Jeorge has always been fond
of a joke. His ship (says Black and
White) was lying off Portsmouth, nnd
coaling had heen taking place. In
tbis tbe prince, ;ike everyone else on
board, had to take bis share. Wben
he had finished, he looked a pretty
picture, being coal-dust from the
crown of his head to the soles of his
boots. One of his messmates made
thfl laughing remark thnt his giant-
mother, then staying at Osborne,
would have Something of a shock if
she could see bim at that moment.
"By Jovol" said His Royal Highness
"what a lark! 1 have a good mind
to let ber see me," Ills brother officers egged bim on, and a boat was
lowered away and off went the .prince
nearly dying with laughter, and as
[black as a nigger, Hy some means
or other be managed to gain aeess
' to the grounds of Osborne, and presently the familiar donkey-chaise
bearing the late Queen hove in sight.
(When It got. close to bim, he stepped
from where he hnd heen concealed,
and approached Her Majesty, who
gazed at the weird apparition in
amazement. Then she made a movement as though to call one of herjnt-
tendants to throw him out of the
plnce. "Oh. all right; I will go if
you like," s-'aid His Royal Highness
in assumed dudgeon, "hut I must say
ihat 1 don't think It is a very kind
wny tn greet your loving grandson!"
Even the grave old Queen wns forced
to break into n smile as she recognised the Royal sailor, but. from atl
accounts, he received rather a severe
"dressing down" from Her Majesty
when he ioinel the Royal party at
dinner later In the day ..ver the "un*
seemllhess" of his conduct.
