Nelson, Aug. 17, Viii.
"I nominate Mr. A. a. Goodeve of
Roasland,   aa Conservative candidate
for Kootenay."
With these words from F. *.. \M*t
of Rosslond, there broke forth a
burst of cheering at the convention
\ yesterday morning, which for wholehearted enthusiasm has not been
equalled in Nelson for many a day.
Time after time the crowded hall
cheered Mr. Goodeve and the nomination was seconded, directly it was
made   by  a score  of  delegates,    and
with the words: "I move tbat nomination close" from T. H. Wad man,
of Revelstoke, Mr. Goodeve was officially nominated as the Conservative standard bearer in Kootenay.
All the nine ridings of the Constituency were represented, the full
number of 10 delegates being present
from nearly every district.

Considering the efforts that the

there can be no doubt but that the
comfort and welfare of the visitors
from Cranbrook are being closely
studied. Keep the day in mind, leave
the day open from other engagements, go down to Creston and have
the time of your lives.
The Prospector will let its readers
have some further details next week.
The Kalispel visitors had no picnic
when they crossed bats with the local bunch on  Wednesday evening.
It was an exciting and interesting
game right up to the seventh innings
when the Cranbrook boys donated
four runs to the visitors on errors.
O'Neil pitched swell bull, never allowing thc visitors to do any stii
ous batting, while, on tbc other
hand  Kunsch was pounded hard.
In the tirst inning Kalispel secured
two runs, off of Willard's two base
hit to left Held, McWha ploughing up
thc Held with his nose in endeavoring to*" catch thc pill.
In tbc second innings Crnnbrook secured one run, earned by Potter's
two bagger. A three bagger in thc
fourth brought in another run. In
the fifth McWha and Mulligan swatted thc sphere for throe Jmses, thereby earning two more runs. In the
seventh the visitors secured four runs
with hut one single, a comedy of errors, or bad luck on the part of the
home nine, being responsible for the
same. The locnls secured two more
earned runs in thn Inst of the ninth,

Tax on Bachelors
Probably the average opinion of a
law imposing a tax on bachelors is
that it is freak legislation. Uut the
basic idea of laws having this end in
view is that tbe bachelor, unless he
is suMJected to a speeial tax, does
not hear his share of thc burdens of
society. The argument however, can
probably go further than that.
Who is it that stolidly remains
seated in a street car while delicate
women sway hack and forth in thc
aisle, spasmodically grasping af the
handholds covered by masculine bncks
and directing appealing glances at
him the while? The bachelor. Who
is it that forces his way into an elevator car already crowded to suffocation, and steps on the feet and puffs
tobacco smoke into the faces of the
poor stenographer ladies going to
their arduous labors? Again, the
bachelor. Who spendH his vitality
and dollars trying to pair kings and
queens until tho small hours of the
morning when his efforts might hotter
he directed towards tbe accumulation of groceries and beefsteak? Same
old bachelor.
Married men don't do any of these
things. They have high and line ob
jects in life.
Their close association with the
sex justly selected by genius to wear
wings in pictures has purged their
natures of grosBncss and olllmlnftted
from their beings nil desires save
those which qualify tbem as candidates for the celestial choir.
Ves, thc bachelors are a had lot.
It would serve them right to he
To i the editor of tbe Prospector:—
Dear Sir:-
What was one of the most pleasing
social events of the season took place
on Thursday evening, August 10th, in
thc Wycliffe school house, when the
newly organized choir of the Methodist church gave a musical and Ice
cream social. The affair was a big
success in every way. The school
room was packed to its utmost capacity, and the entertainment was of
tlie highest order.
Among the numbers we might mention the selections by the choir,
which were conducted bo successfully,
by Mr. It. Glanville. Also Mr. John
Miller in his favorite funny sketches,
which made a great hit. Mrs. Wtn.
Orosly, who has a wonderfully sweet
voice, rendered a solo in her usual
pleasing manner. Also Mrs. Dames,
of Coal Creek, who gave a pleasing
selection, which added much to the
enjoyment of the evening.
Miss Gamble of Marysville render
ed a solo very creditably.
Mr. Arthur HclTer gave two selections which werc very well received.
The duet hy Mise Smith and Mrs.
Glanville merits special mention, as
it was above the average of what is
usually heard, even in a much larger
place thau this. The quartette by
Mr. and Mrs. Barnes, Mr. and Mrs.
Glanville was another feature which
should not be overlooked as It furnished more enjoyment than anything
else during the evening.
A solo by Mrs. John Muir, who
looked very charming ln blue silk,
wns also much appeeeiated. and Mr.
Dickson, of Marysville rendered a
solo seldom equalled hy anyone.
The whole affair was a great surprise and treat to the people of Wy
cliffe, who did not realize before what
musical talent lay dormant In tbeir
lev. cream, cake, borne made caudles, etc., were sold during thc even
iug, and a handsome sum netted,
which will go to buy music for the
newly organised thoir.
Mr. Otis 0, Staples acted ns chairman for the evening, in a very pleasing manner.
Hoping to see more of these pleasing  events,    and  thanking  you    for
your space, I beg to remain,

Lumbermen's Meeting
Immediately after the Forestry
meeting was adjourned the Mountain
Lumbermen's Association held a
meeting to discuss the market conditions.
Prospects reported from agents in
thc Northwest are to thc effect that
there will he an unprecedented demand lor lumber, as the harvesting
of a record crop  is assured.
Ways and means for meeting this
demand were discussed vcry thoroughly aad the manufacturers are
very fortunate in having heavy stock
to meet the required  demand.
No Deferred Election
John Keen, returning officer, in
conversation with a representative of
the Prospector said: "That the election in Kootenay would not he postponed hut that nominations would be
made on August 25th at Nelson, and

Tourist Traffic Beats
all Records
Tne immigration and tourist influx into British Columbia and Vancouver Island this year is by far the
largest in tho history of the province.
Tourists are more than ever attracted by the widely-heralded scenic
beauties and rare llnnnclal opportunities of this part of the great Northwest, and immigrants are coming into British Columbia In larger numbers than ever before. A high type
of British immigrants are selecting
British Columbia as the future lield
of their labors and small investments, and American farmers are
coming Into the region more ftc-
((Uently and regularly than before,
though this class of immigrants show
still a preference for the Prairie provinces.
While the tlrst six months of this
year have shown n most marked increase In tourist traffic, the remain*
der of 1911 promises, if anything, to
heat all records. There arc large
bookings for Vancouver from thc National Educational association of the
United States, which Is holding its
annual convention in San Francisco,
attended by several thousand persons
and there arc other conventions,
coming along during the fall in various cities on the Paciflc const whose
membera have Hlgnlflod their denim to
visit Vancouver. While a large percentage of theBO people are tourists
pure and simple, there are iiulto a
few among them who arc men with
plenty of money for which they arc
seeking a profitable market.
An especially good lino of ai nims
hnve been secured hy the management
of thc Edison theatre for Saturday
evening. A good orchestra Is n attendance, and every care and courtesy
is shown patrons of this favorite
picture house.
Convention of B.C.
Fire   Chiefs and
Important Gathering at Cranbrook
A meeting of the Mountain [.um
her man's association was held in the
court house here on Friday afternoon, at wblcb Hon. W. R, Ross,
Minister of Lands, and S, J. Dennis,
<>f the iniui department of the 0, p.
Ft,  were iu attendance.
The meeting wus called to order by
Mr. (His Staples, who stated that
the object of the meeting was to
provide adequate means (or fighting
forest, llres.
Hon. W. It. Ross said: "That the
government, during the season of
1911 has provided a large force of
wardens so as to prevent forest tires
as much as possible, and that tbe
government was extremely anxious
to secure the assistance of the railway company as well as that of the
lumbermen <if the district. That the
government had last year expended
the tmm of $187,000 and this year it
was estimated tlmt it would amount
to at least $150,00(1."
"That if the government could get
the assistance of tbc railway company, also that of the lumbermen, as
well as mauy private interests the
damage from forest tires would be
greatly lessened. That he desired the
railway company aud lumbermen to
offer suggestions along  these  lines."
Mr. S. J. Dennis, representing the
land department of the C. P. R.,
"That be had discussed the necessity of prevention of forest iirus, a-i
well as fighting lires. And that his
company were keenly alive to tbe
fact that the cooperation of all those
interested was necessary. That his
company had spent $r>0,000 in fighting tires. His company in 1908 bad
spent $17,000. in 1909 $12,400 and in
1910 $17,28«; a total of $4li,G84. That
tranportation to the extent of $26,-
000 had been furnished to government
lire wardens. That his company this
year had a force of 80 tire wardens
engaged in patrol ing their right of
way,   and  that  the  government  and
Importation of Soldiers
to B.C.
Word has just been received at Victoria of a meeting held on the 20th
ultime at tho offices of the Naval and
Military Emigration league at thc
parliament buildings London, to welcome A. Y. Hepburn, tbc organizer
of the Vancouver branch, and to discuss with him various important:
matters in connection with Canadn
generally, and the "dominions beyond the seas." Among those attending were major-general Sir Ron-
aid Lane, the chairman, Lord Saye,
and Solo, major-general Sir Frederick Benson, Cols. Maude, Balfour,
Barnet and Pollock, Major J. Hus-
sey Walsh, Frank Doverell, and Mr.
Scanmell. The League is under tbe
direct patronage of H. ,R. H. the
Duke of Connaught and many others
notables, including Lord Roberts,
who is the president. The discussion
at the meeting called in Mr. Hepburn's honor turned chiefly upon the
ways and means for getting ex-service men of "exemplary" and very
"good" character out to British Columbia, the cost heing so much greater than that of transport to otber
parts of Canada, nnd even to Australia, wbere certain concessions are
granted in many cases. After the
meeting a deputation waited upon
Premier McBride, the party including Lord .Saye and Selo, Major-general Sir Frederick Benson, Major W.
Hussey Walsh nnd Mr. Seaininoll, tbc
deputation being introduced by Mr,
Hepburn. Hon. Mr. Mcllridc received his visitors with his accustomed
cordiality, and assured them that
upon bis return home he would go
into their representations carefully,
and do all in his power to overcome
the difficulties instanced.

Mr. p. Luml, of Wnrdner, said
"That he was heartily in accord with
the suggestions of Mr. Ross and Mr.
Dennis, that signal stations should
be provided, and signals flashed from
one point to another, so that the
necessary assistance could he pro
cured. That tire wardens should be
hired by thc year. That be did not
think it safe to burn slashings, unless it was done late iu November or
December, abd tgen only under the
direction of flre wardens, together
with thc assistance of the owners of
the property."
Mr. Robinson, of Sicnnious, a for
mer resident of Cranbrook suid:
"That Mr. Lund's suggestion of an
educational propaganda was a good
one, that, prevention of tires cnn on-
rly be obtained by educating those
most interested, that prevention was
I much better than lighting forest
! "That he hoped the govern men t
would instruct Are wardens to follow
up llres until completely put out,
then many tires would lie prevented.
That the fire law should be Jtrictly
enforced during the dry season."
Malcolm Melnnis, said: "That he
I was much pleased by what ha I been
j said by previous spuakor-j, in t!:;>
| matter of prevention nf fires. That
if every lumberman would burn off
I his slashings iu winter months it
j would result in tlie prevention of a
great many fires."
. A McDoiigall of the Fernie Lumber
Co., and Mr. John Leask of tbe firm
of Leask & Johnson Co., also addressed  tlie meeting.
A large crowd gathered at. the
Auditorium on Wednesday evening to
witness the tight between Stier tei
nnd Rynn.
The preliminary between Mulligan,
a Spokane man, ami Curley Smith,
of Calgary, was of three rounds illation, and was fairly well fought. It.
was declared a draw  by  the referee.
The event of the evening from a
lighting point of view was a farce on
the part of Ryan. Streeter forced
the fighting, and in the lirst round
delivered several body blows which
were not relished by Ryan. In the
second round Rynn stalled, but
Streeter kept at him aud sent him to
the floor several times. At the finish
or this round Ryan seemed to have
developed a yellow streak and asked
his seconds to announce that he was
all in. They tried to prevail upou
him to continue the tight, but the
yellow streak was there and be him
self threw bis sponge in the ring.
As n quitter Ryan bas no e-iunl.
Streeter was the best mnn from
start to finish, while Rynn showed
tbat be was a "meal ticket" scrapper.

Labor Famine in Construction Camps
Various railway contractors wtio
have worked in British Columbia
states that a labor famine exists and
that great difficulty will be experienced in securing sufficient men for the
scores of camps now being established along the Fraser and main Thompson rivers. The Vnncouver Board of
Trade will be requested to ask the
Dominion government to modify tho
immigration regulations in order to
permit the importation of men from
the  United  States.
The major portion of the heavy-
work on railways in British Columbia and across the line is now *ie-
ing performed by Italians ond AUBtr
ians. These people, howov-r, under
the Dominion Act, are not 'iltowed
to enter Canada should tbey come direct (rom the place of their nativity
and have sufficient funds to sbow
that they are not liable to hecome
public charges. This law prevjjts the
influx here of thousands of Itat.ars
and Austrians. Interpreting the law
strictly the Dominion immigration
authorities along the frontier have
turned back hundreds of these Kur-
openns who are anxious *o obtain
work in British Columbia a.i there is
little railway work in the western
states of thc Union.
A prominent railway contractor
after a hopeless canvass in Vancouver, declared thnt no relief could le
expected until the immigration regulations insofar as southern Rurop-
liii'i are concerned,  were suspended.
At least seven thousand men wilt
be required on the Canadian Northern in British Columbia, if the
contracts are to be finished within a
period of two years as stipulated by
tbe executive of the railway in Toronto. Thus far the Vancouver labor
Agencies report that the abnormal
prosperity here has resulted In a genuine labor famine and that the i Tilers
ol the sub-contractors for .mm cun
not be filled. A great scarcity of labor in the Grand Trunk pacific c imps
beyond KI teal as ('anyon Is also suid
to exist. Hundreds of men could bo

Darzac—bad come into the square tower at that time. And. after your false
expressions of astonishment, how quiet

"Vou lie!" shouted the man (I could

But none of us stirred a finger, and
Itouletabllie, who had lost nothing of

cry, "Robert, Robert, Robert!"
And It wns a cry of Joy! Two Dar*

every one of us save the Lady in
Black might have been deceived! But
her heart told her the truth, even admitting that her reason, notwithstanding the triumphant conclusion of Rouletabille, might hnve hesitated. Her

In tbe summer ot 1906, M. And reef,
a well-know u businessman ol St. Petersburg, bought at auction iur $lu,uuu
a beautiful old necklace made ubuut

Jeweler for the ill-fatsdJsouia XVI.
Nearly ull the members of the
French royal family lost their lives In
the Revolution, bu: the necklace was
taken by u survivor to Brussels an I
there sold. Over and over again it
changed hands and every one who
owned it was unlucky. Finally a Russian prince bought it for |20,000 aud
gave it to tiie duikvr Tzukki.
Tzukki's health failed, she was reduced to abject poverty an J died. The
necklace waa sold to M. Linevitcb,
tlie collector. He died suddenly at
Monte Curio and it passed to a rela*
tive who lost all bis money and was
only saved from beggary by selling
the piece of jewelry.
Andreef bought it, and almost the
first time his wife wore it he fell
into a lit of senseless jealousy and
cut her down with a sword.
Such instances may be multiplied.
Count Zborowski, when killed in a

him at the Westminster Palace the

Around him wen- seated the leading
men of the Kmpire. Sir Charles an-e

lenge ol the "Uluenose" was in hil
voice, as in vehement, declamatory
sentences he declured his faith ill the
future of the Cuuuda lie had helped
so much tu build.
Sir Charles Tupper is the aristocrat
..i Canadians. He is one ot the lasl
of the Patres. To his wor; as a cjn-
itituliou build r. so fittingly commemorated at the Westminster Palace, Id
Sir Wilfrid Laurier's words bear tribute:
"During the forty-four years since

been only one ami tidtiieut uf an important character, and thut came without friction and tu the satisfaction ul
everybody. I suy to Sir Charles Tup*
per, iu your name and mine. 'Well

Uf course eminent Canadians o!
lioth political parties wtre in the
audience which wit ..sued the unveiling of the tablet. But these men forgot for the moment that they were
Liberals or Conservatives; they remembered only that they were Canadians; that they had assembled to
honor the Canadian Constitution and
its founders. Sir Wilfrid eulug^ed his
old political foe.
Thi Hustling, Bustling West.
Easterners visiting the West have
before now commented on the fact
that despite the "..ustle" which il
talked bo much about, it *.akes about
twice as long to buy a cigar or a neck-
lie out there as it does in an eastern
city, and that the gentlemanly clerk
is always willing to detain the Strang-
er with talk about his town's pros*
pects, no matter how many other customers may be waiting. A Toronto
financier who is now in the Wesl
must have had the cup of his bitterness tilled to overflowing, for this ia
tbe postcard he sent to a friend from
one o( the flourishing smaller cities
of the new provinces:

Sleeping In.
A couple of men, who don't get down
to work till nine o'clock, were talking the other day about the trouble
of getting up in the morning, and one
of them told . hat he considers thfl
funniest remark he had heard con-
cerning that trouble.
It appears that one cold morning
last winter in a barber shop in a western Ontario town, a man who looted
pretty tired said, "Say, I tell you I
felt like sleeping in this morning."
"What time do you usually get
up?" he was asked.
"I'm a milkman," he said, "and I
usually eet up at 4.30."
The idea of a mun who gets up at
that time on a winter morning talking
of "sleeping In" struck the man who
rises late as being mighty funny.
"That man would have to lie hall
a day longer before talking aboul
'sleeping In,' " he aaid.—Courier.

How it Effects the Manufacturer and
the Farmer
It wus Abraham Lincoln, who gnve
popularity to the Protectionist side
of the tariff question, when he said:
"1 do not know a great deal about the
tariff, hut. whut 1 du know is, that
when we buy goods abroad the foreigner gets the money, but when We buy
goods at home, we get lioth the goods
and the money." Tliis sound philosophy chitracteri7.ee another of the
late president's famous homilies.
"The farmer ami the manufacturer,"
the president ouce said, with his
characteristic shrewdness, "arc both
iu the sume boat ami 1 reckon they've
got to learn to navigate the craft together or they'll upset." "He com*
pared the case of a Pennsylvania
farmer," continues the historian in
question, "and a Pennsylvania iron
merchant ami implement maker whose
properties adjoined. Under a pro-
teet ive policy the fanner supplied
the iroiimaker with bread, meat, vege.
tables, fruit, fodder for horses, etc.,
ami the iroiimaker supplied the farmer with all the iron, iron implements,
etc.. which he needed. Assuming that
u change is made uml the Protective
policy abandoned, the farmer then
discovers that hn can buy his iron
implements cheaper from Europe than
from his neighbor, assuming that he
sells a sufficient quantity of flour in
Europe to enable him to effect the
purehn.se of the iron. He ultimately
discovers that the cost of carriage to
the coast, transportation by sea to
England, insurance aud cartage on
arrival, does not. enable him to receive such a good reward for his labor
as ho formerly (Ild when selling his

Although a large proportion ot tbem

There Is no caste among any of tbe

But while there Is no caste tbe Persians are In some ways great sticklers

away from tbe house If possible. In
grading tbe aim should be to distribute evenly all surface wuter, uvoldiug
tbe formation of little ruus which

It Is essential that It he enriched with

The outer hot room, at about the

stays there for a little, still clothed iu

mounts the slab und scp-uts beside his

The Lethbridge Herald says that

in Kootenay, but which one is going
to he slaughtered ou the altar of reciprocity has not  yet  bfiSH  found.

The Herald says: "That every elector should know that closer trade
relations with Great Britain does not
figure in this campaign, and still less
does the commercial union with the
l'uited States." tf this is a fact why
does the Wehsterian expounders of the
Grit party desire reciprocity with the
United States?

The Hon. "Mill" Templeman Ih reported ns seeing the very heavens
filled with Liberals, he haH a glowing vision of a nmy future, and
thinks there is nothing in sight but
reciprocity in Canada, even British
Oolumbla is to turn herself upside
down. The "Hon. Hill" Will receive
a severe jolt on the morning of September 22nd.
Sooner or later the hearing of re
clprocity on wages was hound to become an important issue. The Liberal press is anxious to convince the
workingman that under Sir Wilfrid's
nostrum the cost of living will be reduced and the rate of wages increased. This is a large order, because it
involves a reversal of all human experience. There is not a labor leader
in the world who does not know-
that any sensible reduction in the
cost of living is always followed by
a reduction in wages. There is not a
labor leader in the world who does
not make the cost of living the basis of his demand for higher pay,
and as the cost of living has advanced universally, the logic of this
i argument has heen admitted, and
j wages havi- risen automatically By
; what process can Sir Wilfrid Laurier
guarantee to make water run uphill
In the labor market? If be has any
jmtent for producing Buch art unheard
nf result, tht- secret has not been
, disclosed Thle may be one ol the
"surprise packet!" which the Victoria Times has assured Ita readers
is In Btora for them, Meanwhile,
. however, the wage-earnei will be
more apt to rely upon the experience
of the past than on the rosy and al
together imaginary picture which Bir
Wilfrid paints of tbe futute. In this
' connection the Victoria Times has
j.surpassed itself. In Thursday's iBSue
jit. makes the following remarkable
i editorial statement "Intelligent la
jhoring men know that tbe cost of
living has nothing tf. do with tbe
rate of wages." The working man
! who did not know bettei than thl
would not he very "Intelligent,"
, whatever else he might he; indeed,
there are few working-men even in
.Victoria sufficiently "intelligent" to
[remember that Within the I,it few
years at least two advances have
been made in tho wages ol the city
workmen, solely on the ground o in
creased cost of living. They nre also
"Intelligent" enough to know thnt
other grades of workmen than those
usually designated hy Ihe term, have
hail similar advances, and that the
authorities have, without demur, con
reded   the     legitimacy  of   tbe  claim
'I'he Times has been singularly uu

Pi ■- lent Taft ami Secretary Wil
ion argue with their own people for
reciprocity on the still broader
grounds of conservation of natural
resources. The United States having
wantonly squandered its forest re
3ources leems It eminently wise to
deolete those of Canada, and hence
the reciprocity hill la so framed as
put that couutry in position to
bring pressure to hear on the Canadian provinces which now prohibit
the export, of pulpwood, Then Secre
tary Wilson tells the farmers of the
United States—as he did a few days
ago in Michigan—that the best thing
that can happen to the farmers of
the united States is to drop wheat
raising, and let Canada do it for
them, because of the rapidity with
which it has exhausted the soil; that
mixed farming is not only more profitable,, but takes less virtue from
the land. Secretary Wilson is not a
theorist, but is himself a practical
farmer, and his interest in and sympathy for the manufacturer associa
ted with tbe farm has been demon
strated with distinguished success,
for the creation of such great industries as that of beet sugar in the
United States was due to his foresight and careful planning. He sees
that there is more money and a
broader industrial development to be
accomplished if the United States lets
Canada exhaust its soil in wheat-
raising while the United States
manufactures^ Hour and otber products and cereals for the world,
developing the * more profitable all-
round mixed farming.
Our own thoughtful men also recognize tbat this is precisely tbe
policy that should be laid down for
Canada, but there is need for education on these matters in Western
Canada if we would save that region from the mistakes that are being recognized and remedied in the
American central and western states.
What does Laurier mean?
The more the announcement made
about the natural resources of tbe
three western provinces is scrutinized
the more does it appear like a piece
of pre-election Launerism, and the
less like the peruser of such legislation as will remedy the inferior status of the three western provinces.
Sit Wilfrid Laurier is notoriously
a man who persistently clings to a
course once he has adopted it. He
has never really swerved in deference
tu public opinion, although he has
olten appeared to do so. He has
that pecultai kind of conscience whlcn
whichtpermlta lum to speak and even
[act under compulsion in hostility to
his own Inmost design- Naturally,
therefore, he will imply an intention
tn accordance with the people's will
before nn election, and make appar-
enl nro mt bob which he haa not the
remotest Idea of carrying out. The
secret of his political strategy is tn
delude the people by procuring them
to delude tltetnselveK at bis BUggCB

The logical processes of Sir Wilfrid's

have had a most peculiai  and unsatisfactory   experience ol    his methods
of    Implementing a bargain,   In con j

Of course, trickery of such a character would be Impossible if this is
not a mere piece of pre-election humbug, and if Sir Wilfrid Laurier is a
une convert to the belief In justice
and full equality anion*; the provinces. But is he? There's the rub.
When the hirsute adornments of leopards and the skins of Kthioptans he-
come subject to chemical changes people will believe it, not till tben. A
chameleon takeB many colors in the
daylight. and has become a proverbial illustration of just such politicians as Sir Wilfrid Laurier. But he
resembles a chameleon in another respect; it always returns to the same
color in thc dark.
Has Sir Wilfrid Laurier committed
himself to Mr. Borden's policy in
this matter of resources, or does he
intend merely to deceive the people
into thinking that he haB? That is a
question which may never be settled
because it is more than likely to be
Mr. Borden who will be called upon

not Sir Wilfrid Laurier.

The recent half million dollar blaze
in British Columbia, &n well as the
Porcupine disaster, induced the government of Canada to appoint an
expert Mr. H. R. McMillan to enquire into the best means of conserving Canada's Timber supply. The
destruction of such a large proportion of the timber bas made the protection of thc rest imperatively be-
ceBsary. Of 653 fires reported in 1909
railroads caused 202, settlers clearing
land 177, camperB and travellers 155,
hunters, prospectors and lumbermen
56, and 63 were due to other causes.
With the exception of those fires
caused by lightning amounting to 10
per cent, the forest fires of Canada
were due to preventable causes.

A despatch from London says it is
understood that the admiralty bas
at laBt been convinced by the arguments of those opposed to the constant increase in the size of warships. The doom of the Dreadnaught
has been sounded. A smaller type of
vessel with 14-gun and secandary battery will replace it. This is regarded
as a victory for Lord Charles Beresford who from the very first waB
opposed to the policy of building
Dreadnaughts. The new vessel will
not be begun till next yenr when tbe
new design will be applied to the
battleships of the 1912-13 programme.
Tbey will be about 18,000 tons, and

Forestry Press Bulletin
Statistics of the lumber used have
been received from 162 companies,
consisting of the agricultural implement and Vehicle Manufacturers of
Canada, in six provinces, by the Forestry Branch of the Department of
the Interior. 7fi,474,008 feet of lumber were used, worth $2,513,265. ar
an average cost of 532.86 per thousand . (intario used nearly 90 per
cent, of the total for the Dominion;
Quebec purchased 6 per cent; Manitoba t per cent; and Nova Scotia,
New Brunswick and Prince Edward
Island used very small amounts.
Woods used in these industries require strength and durability, which
is shown by the large amount of
Maple Elm, Ash, Oak, Birch and Hickory that were used. Of the native
j woods Cherry was tbe most expensive at $104.00 per thousand, and
tronwood the cheapest at $15.00 per
thousand. Mahogny at $120.00 per
thousand, was the most expensive ol
imported  woods.
The species of woods having the
technical qualities required by theBe
industries at present grow only in
small quantities in the agricultural
and farming districts of Canada. For
this reason the supply is rapidly becoming diminished, so that unless
steps arc taken to reforest or conserve the production, we must depend more and mure for our Bitpply
on the Cnite<l States. The fact that
the wi mils necessary fur the proper
building of agricultural implements
cannot be secured in any quantity in

instance the translation is from the

The   word   orthodox   signifies   "cor-

I mil that my presentation is not thi

i correct, thai it is the true doctrne
, of the Word of God. If to, it \* or-
; thodox, in thu highest sense of that
term, and everything to the contrary,
: being opposed  to   the   standards of

Everything depends upon our stand-
I urd.    I stand for the Bible, its teach-
. ing,  its doctrines,  and  therefore am
| orthodox.    On the   contrary, Higher
Critics and  Evolutionists   and  those
who bold   the creeds   of   the "Dark
Ages," contradictory to the Bible, are
i proportionately     unorthodox—hereti-
I cal.
Whut Christendom needs to-day is
i a  return to tbe  Bible, an investiga-
; tion of its teachings and, correspondingly, a rejection of all human creeds,
which ure admittedly   more   or less
defective.   Let us "stand fast in the
liberty  wherewith  Christ bath  mads
| us free."   Let us accept the Bible a*
the only  standard.    Let  ill  study It
and   understand   it to the   extent of
■ •ur ability     Let  us rejoice in everv
degree of harmony   we  all  attain  in
the correct understanding of it.    L°t

Fighting Fish of the East.
In tin* garden.- ol Singapore it i.- the
custom to stock the putids with all
manner ui queer fishes—many of them
of the fighting variety, so dear to tin'
heart of the Oriental. This species of
fish is so combative that it is only
necessary to place two uf them near
each other, like lighting cocks, and
perhaps to irritate them a little, to
bring on a lively conflict, They at
once charg * euch other, with tins
erect, at the same time changing color,
in their excitement, from the dullest
of gray-greens tu brilliant reds and
blues.    Indeed, confinement in close
i quarters ia not nettled to arouse their
combative propensities,
;     Place two gluss jars close together.
: with one of the fighting fish in each,
and they will ut once swim round and
i endeavor to charge each other through
: the interposed gluss.
Even  a single tish, seeing himself
, reflected in u mirror, will dart at hta
own image; und, irritated ull the more
1 by his failure to reach his supposed
enemy, will assume the most brilliant
\ hues, seeing  his reflected antagonist
{ do the sume, be will redouble his ef*
j forts to reach him.

called by deatli in recent mouths, ull
passed away about or after midnight.
A case iu point was furnished by
the sudden serious illness and quick*
ly-ensuing death of King Kdwurd,
which cuught many editors napping.
The duy of the King's death wus a
busy one in most newspaper offices,
the staff being hastily set to work
preparing the columns of biographical mutter which should huve been
ready years before for just such emergencies. Hud u day's illness uot giveu warning of the fatal termination
of his ail-too brief reign, Kdward the
Peacemaker could not huve been so
fittingly honored in death by the press
uf his dominions. Most newspaper
offices, however, maintain uu elaborate system of files for biographies,
portraits und cuts, and so ure reudy
at a moment's uot.ee to do full justice
to the death if a notable figure in
the world's affairs.
The practice of having obituary notices reudy in advance gives rise sometimes to odd and grimly-humorous incidents, which for obvious reasons ure
little heard of by the general public
except in the extreme cases where tbe
erroneous announcement of a man's
deuth is actually published, uud the
innocent victim bus the unusual experience of reading his own obituary.
Such un occurrence guve Mark Twuiu
un opportunity ul making one of his
most famous jokes, when be gravely
informed the Loudon journalists that
the report of his death, cabled from
New York, hud been greutly exaggerated. A few years ugo the stuff of
.ale Loudon Advertiser, taking time
£y the forelock, got ready the life
sketches of some prominent citizens
whose advancing years made it almost inevitable thut within the near
future they would be culled away. One
day the editor, iu superintending the
r.aking-up form, wus astonished to
llud thut by some mistake iu the composing room the picture and obituary
of the veteran statesman, Sir Johu
Carling, had been mude reudy for the
press. There was a hasty re-arrange*
meut of me form, uud Sir John, who
was theu hale and hearty, was permitted to enjoy life until the present
yeur of grace. Only a lew weeks since,
an over-zealous correspondent of an
outside journal, finding in the proofs
of his own newspaper office the account of the deuth of a well-known
citizen, sent it to the telegraph office
before he discovered that the subject
of the sketch was uot yet dead. -Saturday Night.
The   Colonel   Found   an   Oath   That

Field   Marshal   Viscount   Wolseley,

acting as field-engineer before Sebasto-
pol, was severely wounded, lu the
Indian Mutiny campaign, and afterwards iu the China War, he did good
service, and in 1870 commanded the
Ked River Expedition.
For his "courage, energy, and perseverance"   in    the    conduct   uf  the

Ouce upon a time in a South of Ire-
laud garrison town there was stationed un officer whom we may call X ,
who hud achieved a reputation almost
as great as that of "Damnation Tuck*
er" for strong language. One day
Lord Wolseley was expected for un
inspection, and X — received Irom a
brother officer a serious warning
against the use ol "cuss words" while
the commander-in-chief, who was
known to hold strong views ou the
subject,  was  present.
Tne greut soldier ut length arrived,

Suddenly, however, he caught Wolse-

the meeting he usked thut all those

the exception of a mau near the front,
everybody rose.
Afterwards Mr. McNutt aaked a local mun why the man who had kept
his seat was opposed to reciprocity.
"He's not Opposed," wus the answer. "He's one of Ihe most enthusiastic grain growers of this section."
"Why didn't he stand up, then?"
asked Mr. McNutt.
"Well, the truth is," said the local
man, "thut he went to sleep iu the

Great Ages.
Ontario has had some remarkable
ages recorded in the papers in the

story comes from Hamilton.
Margaret Farley, who was registered on the House of Refuge books as
being 115 years of age, died at that
institution. She was a remarkable
old woman, in possession of her faculties until the end.
The death also occurred a few days
ago of Robert Spooner, eighth concession of Merseu Township, at the
remarkable ugo of 113 yeurs. Mr.
Spooner was born in England In
1798, und cume to Canada when about
11) yeara of age, thus having lived
over a century In this? province.

The Four Maries.
Last nicht there were four Maries,
This nicht there'll be but three;
There  wus Mary   Beaton,  an'  Mary
An' Mary Carmichael, an' Me.
This quartette of Maries was chosen
for her us playmates by thc Queen
Mother when Mary was quile a child.
The historian attributes tbe choice, as
regards the name, to the fact thut iu
the Gospels four Maries nre often as- -
sociated witli the Mother of our Lord.
Hut this is u fur-fetched idea, says a
writer   in   The   Weekly   Scotsman-
Most likely the Queen-Mother simply
conceived the pretty notion ol having
companions for her daughter all bearing thc same name as the daughter '
herself.   These four Maries all went
with ths future Queen to France in ,
those   happy  eurly  days  before   the
dork  shadows had  begun  to  stretch -
themselves by her side.   They returned with her to Scotland iu 1001; and
one of them,  Mary  Seton,  remained
with her till near the tragic close at

many little dinners which he presides
over, the congratulatory address will

It is now some thirty-seven years
since Mr. Hudrill first came to Canada, although it was not until three
years alter his first arrival that he
entered the service of the Montreal
Board of Trade, he having spent two
y ars of the interval in Kngland. Three
years after he joined the Board of
Trade he was made assistant secretary. This was in 1£B0. He filled this
position for six years, and upon the
death of the former secretary succeeded to his position.
He is an Englishman by birth, hav.
ing been born in London in 1848, but
tl. ire are few men of sixty-three years
of age who carry their years so easily.
He possesses unusual Qualifications
for his position which calls (or a display of diplomacy, tact und social
qualities, as well as for purely business ability.
As these are duties which the average husiness man knows little enough
about, it may well be imagined that
the board, for the most part, is very
well pleased to leave the principal details in Mr. Hadrill's charge.
That thc Montreal Bourd of Trude is
recognized aa one of the largest, most
influential arid most important organizations in Canada is due not only to
the ability of the various officer who

Friendly delations Lead to String*
The cse8 in which cuts uud dogi
have formed close friendly relatiuu-i
ure, of course, too numerous to mention, lt really seems as if there were
uu animal friendships so strong and
lasting us that between cats and dogs
when once it is formed. It is well
kuuwn thut mother-cats when deprived of their newborn progeny will adopt
puppies, rabbits, monkeys, or ulmost
uny other Wilder young creatures that
muy be handy. But there has recently come to light a cuse fur which there
is uo such apparent explanation.
A cut and a female fox-terrier,
which had brought into the world
their progeny ut abuut the same time,
deliberately swapped their young, the
cut taking the puppies lo bring up,
and the dog the kittens. The exchange wn* satisfactory, und buth litters were brought iu good health to
the weauable stage. Nobody kuow?
j whut led to such abnormal conduct.
A somewhat similar case is reported frum Montreal. A householder
there, having a female cat and a female dog with families of young, felt
that his house wus iu danger uf becoming a sort of Nuak's ark, and took
away and drowned ull the kittens.
The puppies found fuvor in his eyes.
Deprived of her tittle ones, the cut
began to "spell" the female dug iu
taking cure of the puppies. As soun
as the mother-dug left her nest the
bereaved mother-cat crawled into it
and nursed the puppies. Nothing
luth, the puppies took uii that cume
to them, and throve prodigiously. The
cut licked them und took care of them
as she would huve taken care of her
A certain cut, the story of whose
career is vouched for by a cat club,
adopted a litter of young rabbits und
nourished them well. The cat was,
for thut matter, very sociable and inclusive in her likings. One year her
constant companion was a chicken.
The two ate hab.tuully out of the
same dish, uud slept every night in
the same enclosure.
There is an authentic story of a
male and a female cat in Halifax that
lived on terms of perfect amity with
all the animals on the place—dogs,
chickens, and whut uot. It so happened that a hen which h: 1 a brood of
seven chickens was killed accidental*
ly. The ont, which some two weeks
before had been deprived of her kittens, appeared to observe the predicament of the seven little chickens. She
crawled into their uest, and the chickens, looking fur warmth, nestled into
her warm fur, peeping gratefully. The
chickens, fed by their owner, throve
perfectly, and every day the strange
sight was presented of their following
the mother-cat ubout the premises, as
if expecting her to tind them food alter the manner of a hen.

A Bright Boy.
In moat regular lines o) work the old
hands usually try to play some joke
on each new boy thut start? in at the
business. That bunk clerks are no
exception to this rule was indicated
by a joke played on the new "junior"
in a bank in Collingwood.
The youngster was sent out to a
merchant to collect two dollars on a
draft, and he got back to the bank
with two American silver dollars.
"Where   did   you   get   those cartwheels?" asked  the collection clerk.
"Don't you know thut they're worth
only forty-eight cents eachP"
, The boy looked badly tcured.
"Better take thern to the accountant," suid the collection clerk, with a
wink at that official. "But I guess
he can't do anything for you."
"No, only worth forty-eight cent*
each," said the accountant.
The boy wai still more frightened,
so he took the big silver pieces home,
intending to turn in two bills if he
could persuade his father to let him
have the bills.
Next morning the youngster turned in two Canadiun bills. He had a
big parcel under his arm, and he
proudly exhibited to the clerks a
great collection ot ties, stockings and
other things to wear.
"Say," he Baid with a smile, "I put
a good one over on tbnt sttre-keeper
down the line. T got l.im to give me
two dollars worth of stuff (or those
old cart-wheels."

: How to Supply the Pressing Needs of
the Growing Western Country
Winnipeg,--As the summer progrea-
ses and the wheat growth ol the West
udvunces towards maturity there
comes this yeur, as there comes most
years, un appeal for help iu the harvest llelds; uml the probability is that
even though Eastern Canada muy
send out thousands nf meu uml boys
to aid in the garnering nf the grain,
the West will, Oliver Twist-like, ask
for inure.
This problem of how to supply the
pressing needs uf a 111-w and rapidly
growing country fur u few weeks (because that is nil that the Invitation
really menus to Easterners) is one of
these which enn only be solved by cooperation atul looking ahead, it is,
truo that tlu- Government, through its
Immigration department is advertising'
in thousands ol newspapers throughout Great Britain uud the United
States that "the harvest is plenteous, but the laborers are few." and1
that some relief can be gained in that
way; but the result would undoubtedly be mueli better if more dependence was to he bad upon individual
Tnke the ense of ti man whu goes to
the Canadian West from old Canada'
or from uny uf the Western or Cen-:
titil States or from   Greet   Britain.
He is a very unusual mini, indeed, if
he does   not   "tuke up   his pen   in'
hand," nt some period of his pioneering and write home to complain either
of his loneliness or nf the weather or
of the gophers or of the snow or of
the heat, or of any dozen other difficulties which pioneers havo to overcome.   He does   so, as a matter   °* I seriously i
course, not with any desire to 'knock';   ■
the new country,   hut   animated   by
that human sentiment   which   seeks
comfort in trouble    and,    failing    to
find it in a new locality, looks for it
in the old home.
But when that sume matt hns made
goud, how often does he write home
to tell of his fortune? The habit of
writing home is much like the habit
of taking the local newspaper from
home; it lusts n year or two or three,
and then it is dropped, because of the
new environment crowding out interest in the old. How much better both
for himself and the country would it
be for such u man to write home, tell
the old folks nt home of his good fur-
tune and ask them to send 11 brother,
a cousin nr even only an old schoolmate to help him gather the crops?
Tbat would be a practical individual way of solving the harvest
problem, partially ut least; it would
be good advertising for the West, because we nil know thut there is no advertisement so good us a satisfied set-
tier; and it would create a new bund
of interest between the man in the
West uud those left behind at home,
And the most attractive feature of
the suggestion (which comes frum W.
D, Scott, the head of the immigration
branch) is that it is just the sort of
thinnprhloh will appeal to the sentiment of the westerner and is at the
time reasonable in cost.

Alfred   Austin    Has    Published    Hit
Memoirs of Men and Events.
Mr. Alfred Austin, the Poet-Laureate, who hai written his reminiscences, is not only a poet, but also a
barrister and journalist. H>. practiced
only a few years ut the Bar, and bia
reminiscences are mainly ceeupied
with bis career as a journalist and
man of letters. He was educated at
Stonyburst. and  the  so*, of  worthy
JiareoU iu comfortable circumstances
iving near Leeds.
Wr. Austin once heard Lord WoUe.
I.y giving a useful piece of advice to
i a young officer who asked what was
' the best way to "get on" iu the army.
I The answer was very simple 1 'Try to
get killed."
There is a good deal of intimate
political matter iu Mr. Austin's second
volume. Lord Wolseley, we learn, wai
highly indignant ai beiug ordered
back by tbe Government after the failure uf his expedition to relieve Gordon. Writing to Mr. Austin, he expressed his feelings in tlie words: "He
(a great party leader) deserves to be
turn to pieces iu the market place by
au indignant people.'
The author was once asked by the
then Sir Francis Jeuue what he
thuugbt uf Mr. Chamberlain, tu whutu
he hud been talking ut luncheon.
"How did he strike your" "As being a hard-headed visionary," 1 replied, "who brings tbe most business*
like aud practical mind tu bear ou the
impracticable, nut to say the unattainable."
Years after Mr. Austin told Mr.
Chamberlain of this estim. >.; aud tbe
great statesman was pleased, saying:
"It is nut unflattering, is it?"
It is well known how on a historic
Occasion Lord Kaudolph Churchill
"forgot Gosohen." Mr. Austin has retold the story uf thai strange eveut,
from a new point ot view and from
behind the scenes. Mr. Austin warned Lord Salisbury; "Katidulph is aspiring to jerk yuu out of the saddle,"
to which the Prime Minister replied
j characteristically enough; "I should
not be sorry if he succeeded." Wben
the crash came it wus Mr. Austin
who treated with Mr. Uoschen us Lord
Salisbury's plenipotentiary, and he,
with Lord Rowtou, felt Lord Randolph's auger.
Lord Row ton sail to tne, in a voice '
anybody might overhear, in the dining room of the Carlton, "It is a new
thing for members ut this club to cut
their old friends. . ," 1 said, also
aloud, "You do not mean anyone here
has been cutting you?" "Yes," he
said, "Randolph," who wus sitting at
luncheon not fur off. "Really," I suid,
on purpose thut I might be overheard,
"1 never give him thp chance."
And some yeurs later Mr. Austin
and Lord Randolph were reconciled by
Sir Heury Irving.

"Now," suid the owner in a rage, "did-

to live. But it is doubtful whether
in any other town in the country a
shilling could be made to go further
than in certain parts of the East End,
For a grocery ticket, value one shilling, the following articles can be obtained :
a.  d.
8 pounds of conl       \%
Loose firewood          >£
3-4 of brawn or 1 1-4 pounds
mutton (raw)       3
Loaf of bread        S
2 pounds of potutoes        1
1-2 pint of pure milk       1
1-2 pounds of sugar       1
1 ounce tea         1

"An oflicer iu thu army, serving in

Shortly afterwards his widow received
a command to repair to Buckingham
Palace, banging with her a son, If
she had oue, or else a daughter. Tha
lady obeyed tlle command, accompanied by her little five-year-old son.
They were conducted into the Presence, and presently found themselves
all alone with the King, who, drawing
the boy to him, ami giving him bi*
father's medal, snid: 'What I hiu doing you do not understand now, but
you will understand some day. Tell
me, whnt are you going to be when
