Most ol tbe delegates arrived last

with A, Johnson as secretary.
A credential committee was appointed with !•:. I£. Small, ol Cranhrook, and Oeorge Boultoti, ol Fernie, representing Kast Kuotenay.

to permit the committee to arrange
their work, and then John Kcan, of
Kaslo, was elect-tit permanent chairman, ami Deane™ Buchanan and Cur-
lis were placetl iu nomination ami lhe

Well, your people seem to me to bo
very similar to ours. They are hard
working, hospitable and full of that
iii'tiscrihablc spirit of the west that
builds up new communities."
Asked what he thought of British
i'i.lumhia, Mr. Fletcher said: "I have
been three weeks in this province,
ml white I have every faith in tbe
future of tbe prairie country, 1 know
that there are many people from the
states of the middle west who would
prefer to reside in British Columbia
an.l engage in fruit culture. I spent
some time on the coast and on the
Fraser river, and that is a magnificent country. So is the beautiful
Okanagan valley and the Kootenay
lake district, but they all have the
disadvantage ol expensive land. 1
bave been some days in East Kootenav, and seen a portion of t-he Windermere country and along the Kootenai' river and have made a care ul
examination of tlie live, ten attl fif-
titii acre tracts offered for sale in
the immediate vicinity of your city
ml the Elko district, and from
what I have seen I am convinced that
vou are destined to have a great
iruit country here. I believe tbat
there is no more attractive and at
the same time remunerative occupation open to the man of moderate
means than the cultivation ol Iruit
and vegetables in a climate such as
yours, which leaves nothing to be de-
eired. When one can purchase laml,
such as you have here, at trom $59
to $100 an acre, the small capitalist
has every chance to make a good
liv inn and some money, to say nothing of the sure increase in the value
of tbe land purchased at present
prices. 1 consider that small fruits,
such us strawberries, currants and
raspberries, should be extensively
grown in a district such as this,
particularly while the larger trees,
such as apples and so on are growing
to the bearing age. It is only a
question of time when you will have
canneries here, which will take all
your surplus product and thus give
you a home market for everything
you can raise along these lines. Well
grown vegetables will also find a
ready market and this industry
should In- developed here along with
fruit growing. 1 am thoroughly
pleased with my visit to the Canadian west and to this part ot British
r..lumhia in particular.. 1 am on nn
way home to Cherokee now aud . -I
shall tell my friends mv ideas of this
country. It is my intention to

William Mackenzie, president of tbe
Canadian Northern railway is ordinarily one ol the most genial men
with whom newspaper men ever come
into contact. He will meet any
question and parry it with a goou-
humored smile, and very often tht- interviewer will discover'that he has
alter all secured very little information.
One day a few years ago in Winnipeg, however, the magnate's goodnature was sorely ruflled. His private car was in the Canadian Northern
yards, and he wished to get away
east in a hurry over the Canadian
'acific. His car was transferred and
during the transfer was somewh.il
shaken up by careless switchmen.
Finally the car arrived in front oi
tht- Canadian Pacific depot, and Uie
president was on hand to get aboard.
His porter was not to be tound: the
car door was locked and the provisions were piled on the platform.
Wilh a rising temperature Mr. Mackenzie met tht emergency aiSl terribly opened the door to his palatial
car. Then without more ado he set
to work to put his own provisions
on the car. He went at it with a
vim and scattered things rathei
promiscuously in the scrimmage.
Needless ui sav he had an admiring
audience of small folk looking on.
The parcel which caused tho amuse-
met.t was a small bag ol unions. Mi
Mackenzie was carrying this wilh
other parcels into the* car when the
bag broke and some of Lis fruit fell
to the platform. The street arabs
had been giving him a wide berth bul
their voices were good
"| say, mister, shouted a little
fellow, and waving his hand In the
air he attracted the president's attention.
"Well, what is it?" said Mr. Mackenzie in not the plcasantrst tone imaginable.
*Youse dropped a union," shouted
the kid.
lt is said by those who heard it
that the address which the president
delivered to the rash youth upon the
spur of the moment, though very
briW, was certainly a classic.

There are in uli civilized countries
certain agitators who, not content
wilh the arduous tusk ol trying to
lead good lives themselves, uie it
-essaiilly trying to induce others t
rimfoim lo their own particular patterns of goodness, but not having
sufficient logic iu their arguments,
nor u sufficiently good programme to
.UlJiiiM to their .stuildurds those living up to oOicr ideals of goodness,
seek to bribe or Irighlen the govern-
cut of the country for the time being to make laws to compel those
others i<i yield obedience lo their
nostrums, a fact that makes it evident that if there is any magnetism in
these nostrums, it exerts itself largely, if not entirely, at its negative or
icpeliajjt pole. Thev belong to that
Intolerant class of humanity which
offers from a delusion of fancied
pertecliuii, they hear the aggrieved
'■ of good men compelled to live
wicked world, and think thai they
0 called upon to set right what
they regard as the disarticulated
limes in which they live. .Some of
these are actuated 'by the opinion
l hut alcohol in all its forms, and in
all circumstances, is a positive poison, and a device of the evil one, aud
ihat the consumption of il is wrou^
per se, and consequently deem it (heir
duty, not merely to abstain them'
solves but to coerce those whom ttiey
regard as their less eulightened fellow mortals, from partaking of it,
thereby attesting their puritanical
intolerance, and amongst lhose are
io lie found the wild enthusiasts of
the water wagon Yclept "the leinjicr-
nuce party." Some of those people
are no doubt well weaning folk who
are so entirely convinced of the right'
I'ousness of their own convictions
and the wisdom ol their own measures that they are driven to regard
lhose who differ from them as not

"There is no good reason why u
mau should needlessly put his owu
wife to the trouble of wiping up Mm
tracks, When he lakes great pains to
clean his feet before crossing his
neighbor's threshold; neither is it
consistent that wc women should be
loo severe ou our own husband and
son (or a little carelessness, when we
assure our callers, with the most
gracious ol smiles, "that it isn't oi
the .slightest consequence.' "
Good bleeding, like charity, should
sgin at home. The day is past
when children uswl to rise when their
parents entered tbe room where tbey
were and stand until they bad received permission to sit. Uut the mistake is now made usually iu the
otlier direction in allowing to small
hoys and girls too much license to
disturb the peace of tlie household.
We think the best way to train
ehitldren in courtesy would be to
observe toward ihem a scrupulous
politeness. we would go so lar as
to say that we should make it as
much a point to listen to children
without interrupting them and to
answer them sincerely and respectfully as if they were grown np. »\ml
indeed, many of their wise, quaint
sayings are far better worth listening
to' than tlie stereotyped commonplaces of the morning callers. Of
course, to allow uninterrupted chatter would he to surrender Ure repose
d the household, but it is not very
•asy, if children are themselves scrupulously respected, to teach tht-iu in
(urn to scrupulously respect tlie convenience of others, antl to know when
to talk and wben to be silent.
II a child is brought up in the constant exercise of courtesy toward
brothers and sisters and playmates,
as well as toward parents ami uncles
aud aunts it will have little left lo
learn as it grows older.
The best brought up family ol
children we ever knew were whu-.ii.
on the principle of always commending them when it. was possible to do
so, and letting silence he the reproof
of any wrong doing which was not
cally serious. We have heard the
hildren of this household, when their
mother had failed to say an) woul
of commendation after some social
occasion, ask as anxiously as possible. "What was it, mamma'.' I
know something was wrong. Didn't
we treat the other children well, or
were Wo too noisy?" ln that house
rcproirf was never bestowed unsought—only commendation, of whatever it was possible to commend*,
was gratuitous.
We think this system would be as
tfKxl for those grown-up children, the
husbands and wives, as for those
sti-1 in the nursery.
Tlie above words were recently uttered in our hearing by a worthy
boy and undoubtedly they are often
reiterated by many who are out of
mployment, or have little or nothing
to do. To all sueh wo say I you
have home capital, you have hands,
feet, bone, muscle, health and are
not these capital'.' What more capital has Ci*l given anybody? "But   if
only bad a lew thousand in cash
apital," says the young man. Hut
these are better than cash capital,
for no one can take them Irom you,
.mil with these you can earn cam.
Our men ot wealth and influence
did not start with any cash capital.
Tliey went to work with their plow,
the hoc, Uie jack plane or axe, and
in time their capital brought them a
rich harvest. Ah! but tliere's the
rub; you don't want to work. You
want money on credit so you can
play the gentleman, speculate and
end your career by playing vagabond.
You want to marry a rich girl who
will support you, while ynu wear
fine clothes, smoke cigars, and be a
gentleman of leisure.
.Shame mt you, young man! Go to
work witli the capital you have and
you will soon make interest enough
upon it to give you as much money
as you need. If you cannot make
money upon what capital you bave,
ymi could not lf you bad a larger
I amount in cash. If you waste your
present capital you would waste
money it you had it. So don't
stand around, a Mptan fellow, waiting tor something to turn up, hut go
to work. Take tbe first work you
can get to do and do tt well. Always do your best, and If you manage
your capital that Ofld has given you
welt, you will soon have plenty more
to manage.
When you hear this question asked
by a man or woman, with Hpa eurv-
ed downward aud voice atttuu-d to
discontent, you may set tbat pcrsou
dowu as supremely selfish- lie or
site asks practically, "Is life worth
living lor me.'" Worth living? til
course it is, so long as there n, one
single other soul in tbe woii I. If
the querist were the last ot his race,
then indeed the answer might well
be "No;" bul while there is another
human being for whom we can do a
lavor, or whose interests we may
advance, life is indeed "worth living."
Friend, when you bud yourself depressed and inclined to think that
life holds nothing for you, look
around you (not very lar away), and
do ihe very lirst lavor Ior another
that comes to your baud. It may he
a very small one, but do it; and
keep on, day hy day, hour hy hour
anil minute by minute, working lor
others, lor truly this alone makes
liie worth living.
(EdtflontOA .Saturday News.)
Tbe Strathcona Chronicle takes exception tu what w.o. said on this
page in regard to Mr. Aylesworth's
ehviioiis act amendment, li accuse*
ihe Saturday News ot developing
species ol "Mind etaggers," "tha
latest phase of the diseaw being lb*
attempt to defend Mr. it. L. a.
Leach for his action in disfranchising
almost ten thousand Couservativv
voters iu Manitoba."
The Chronicle s statement is characteristic of the whole camapign
that is Iieing carried on against tbe
measure. ln lhc lirst place there
were only 5U,U0il voters in tlw whole
province. In only three uut of tlw
ten constituencies were prosecutions
entered against the perpetrators ol
lhe alleged "thin red line outrages."
Vet if wc are to credit the
Chronicle's statement, out ol the
Ifi.uuu voters in Selkirk, Provenchci
and Macdonald, the three ridings concerned, 10.UUU lost their votes. As a
matter of fact a careful reading of
the evidence taken two years ago before the select committee at Ottawa
shows that the number who were
wrongfully deprived of their franchise was not much iu excess of one
Hut it makes no difference whether
the cases ul disfranchisement amounted to one hundred or ten th-uusaud,
so far us this measure is concerned.
The surprising thing is thut they
were so few ami it is lor the purpose
id avoiding them altogether in thu
future thai this acl is introduced.
Thc more there were, the greater
need fur this legislation. The election of lDUl could not have beeu held
if Uw returning officers hud not taken the action lhat they did. Nu
mau has yet showu how it couht
otherwise have been arrange!. Hut
individuals could not he found to assume responsibility for the step on
another occasion, with doubts raised
us to its legality. '
What becomes of the "thin red line
outrage" in the lace ot tin- cwucuce
of Mr. Knott, who was counsel on tie-
half of the prosecution entered by**
lhe Manitoba government? When asked before the committee ut Ottawa
whether he could suggest anything
that was unreasonable in the action
of thc returning ulllccrs ur whether
it was not the most reasonable thing
iu the world for these returning uth-
cers to have dune, he replied witli
candor that he considered it was perfectly reasonable, but the question
was whether ur not it was legal, Tbe
only explanation uf the statement is
that thc whole issue bas beeu raised
out of a pure legal technicality ami
this bill simply provides a way of
gelling out of the difficulty tbat confronted the returning officers in liMM,
thut is legal as well as reasonable.
How far misrepresentation can go
i.s shown by the following from the
Chronicle's article:
".Manitoba had once heen engineered by Mr. 1 .cacti's methods. There
would have been au element of personal danger iu another such franchise robbery and even Leach would
not face it. Thcrclure this iniquit-
ms hill was framed to do Leach's
work by other means." i
It has yet to be shown that even
in i-.UL any wrung was done that
could bave been avoided. Hut, sup-
pose a wrong were intentionally done
iu that instance, how is it to be
perpetrated by thc present bill? It
provides lor an appeal to the judge*
and   Sir   Wi'.f.-id   I auricr, leu
other day went so lur as to offer to
leave the matter wholly in their
hands. If we cannot trust the
judges, who can we trust? What
right has the Chronicle to say that
they will do "Leach's work."
Kor the personal attacks upon Mr.
Leach, tbat i;t'if,letw.n bas only t >
thank himself. While the action of
thc returning officers was perfectly
reasonable as we have pointed out,
there wus no need lor his assisting
them iu their work. The fact tbat
tic wus the Liberal organizer has given a color to the "thin red line"
charges, whieh anyone with any
knowledge ol politics should have been
able to foresee. There was no justification for his mixing up with the
matter at all. But all this has
nothing to do with the present bill,
lf it goes through, the rights of the
voter will be fully safe-guarded and
that is all that has to be considered
at the moment.
Tbe Saturday News has taken
strong ground un this question. Hut
it is at one in regard to it with
many besides Liberal newspapers.
Tliere is no more honest and un-
prejudiced critic of public measures
iu Canada than the Montreal Witness
and this is what it says:
"Whether the opposition In parliament has the country with it in its
raid upon the rights ot parliament,
we do not know. Provincialism as
against national interests has generally been an effective cry. But we
are certain that iu the days when
Cauada becomes promt of being a nation appeals tti mere provincial prejudice will be remembered as mere
demagoguery. To liegln with, the
threat, by means uf tbe obstruction
of proceedings, to prevent the passing
ot the estimates until Um minority
Ihis its way, is a simple dencgration
ot the very principle of parliamentary
rule. It is government by minority,
not by majority. U some great.
popular right was heing trampled on.
tliere might he some excuse tor such
lawless and altogether undignified aud
itrational proceedings, as there Is
sometimes acknowledged to be excuse
even lor rebellion. Hut what Is the
right that parliament claims? Simply
that of managing its own voting lists
und not accepting lists, prepared by
the provinces, and not applicable to-
the federal   divisions.     Tbe alleged
ground of this opposition tl the has.'
charge that the federal government
would falsify the lists. Assuming
that goverumenp futsity the lists—
ui wlucii tliere have u>> dounl been
countless circumstances—tlieq it is
\et) unblushing to claim as a high
principle of public policy lti.it sucn
power of manipulation should he
Vested in the provinces in elections
where the constitution vests u in
parliament. It looks like a party
demand to shape the elections m
provinces where the party happens
to have the majuril). .\s to tue
criminations themselves it would
seem that in cases where the lists
connoted different ureas from those
which ttie federal division required, it
was necessary tu strike out irom one
list those who were beyond the
bounds, und that through the luck oi
proper addresses there were not always data whereby lo place Ihem
ou their right list. It is admitted
that sume mistakes were made. The
opposition is, of course, sine tliej
Were made on purpose. Ihcie an
such accumulations at all elections
aud Hit public is never sure tlul the)
are not well founded. Granted, how
ever, that putty officials aie more
anxious lo gel friends than enemies
on their lists, what sort ot u part)
is il that, lays upeu claim on lhc
right o( manipulation, and ihi.-. on
grounds which dm> a primurj right
of parliament? Parliament lias, as a
mailer ol practice, accepted the provincial lists where these were n,is-
oil ou ihu municipal lists. Iiui
Where they are not su bused, ami
where the electoral areas do not coincide, it is obviously the duty of
parliament to prepare lists ior which
it is itself responsible. The gruuud
taken by the opposition is entire!)
untenable aud its methods factious
and humiliating to a leader whom
many uf the admirers will uc sorry
tu sec lending himself to such unworthy aud unpairiolic strategy."
Then we have lhe Torontu News,
which certainly dues nut often approve of the government's course,
admitting that tho provincial lislj,
which the present nil ml hi strati on had
iu mind when it- Introduced the legislation of HUM wero those prepared h>
the municipalities. These arc in use
in all thc provinces cast of Manitoba
und have been adopted by the Dominion.
In su far as thc legislation before the house of commons is concerned," says the News, "it is a
pity tbat a conference could not bu
had with (he provincial authorities
and an arrangement effected hy which
the wbulu preparation of the lists
would rest iu the bands ul the municipal uud judicial authorities."
'this is the proper system. llm
Igckjug it, parliament hus no alleiiia
live but lo adopt the present measure, to apply tu provinces which

the Spanish forces in Cuba. He next
fought with his regiment, the Fourth
Hussars, on the Indian frontier, afterwards writing his experience in
tbe "Story of tbe *Malakand Field
Forces." During the Soudan war
young Churchill acted in the dual capacity of soldier aud newspaper correspondent for a Loudon paper. At
the battle of Omdurman he rode
through the famous charge unscrutch-
ed. At the outbreak of the South
African war he was one ol the lirst

bas come true because Churchill aud
Kunciman are both members of the
Asquith ministry, the latter as minister of education, Tbe self-possession and courage which Churchill displayed on the field of battle stuck to

Manchester and won the seat, in the
Liberal interests, by a plurality of

his introduction of tbe Scottish home

There was one point in .Mr. Mi>
Uride's speech the other night ihal
made a wonderful impression ou bis

in that pleasing manner thai he lias,
said that during the campaign he
believed in huiii sides maKing a

duty of those elected to hud*, upon
themselves as servants ui ihe people,

was a good one, and his logic can
well be applied lo the Cranbiook district. Tbe Herald has claimed tot

the prosperity of the ptovinco was

McBride, ami lhe argument lhat you
apply to thc conditions iu the Dominion government, ymi should npply to
the evils existing in your own government in this province.
It i.s stated under what seems to be
good authority, that when Mr. McBride was in town lust week he authorized Mr. T. T. McVittie, B.C.,
L.S., to make a thorough examination of thc roads, trails and bridges,
in the Cranbrook district and submit
in a report to the government. his
opinion as to what would be necessary to place Ihem in a good condition, and that everything within reason would be done to give this district needed relief in this direction.
The Herald trusts that this is true,
yea, more than true.

One ot the finest tributes ever paid

Wlmt, should he the cost of orchard
laud iu the Kuotenay antl what return should the investor reasonably
expect, are two very important -questions thai are frequently asked here
al the presenl lime.
The opinion of Buy I'. Biock, thc
Secretary of the Koutenay Fruit
Growers' association at Nelson, when
asked on those two points and the
figures he gives are worthy of very
itreful attention. Mr>. Brock states
that over the hearing period of tell
years one of the host mixed orchartls
lhat has conic under his notice
yielded au average of $5iiQ per acre,
giving au average net income to the
grower of about $2tij per acre. This,
in Mr. Brock's opinion is a very conservative estimate of the product ot
an ordinary fruit ranch and in his
opinion these figures may he safely
used as the basis (or the calculation
of the value of fruit lands in the
Kootenay district. Ten per cent is
an exceedingly good return on the
average Investment. Hence $'M\n per
acre net profit represents ten per
cent on $2li5U per acre and shows
that land value al present hereabouts cannot now be said tit he exorbitant judging from the prices advertised. ., Mr. Brock, however, is
careful to add that all intending purchasers ol land should personally
visit, investigate and ascertain all
tbe facts as to ils trull producing
value before buying.
Mr. Brock figures out the approximate value of au acre of laud iu this
way: Land, $100, clearing, H»K); cost
to get luml Into bearing, approximate. 1850; total, SMO. At lirst
this looks like a lot of money to pay
for land, but it must be remembered
that this same laml, if adapted for
fruit growing will repay this amount
in two years after planting.
It must he quoted, however, that
the figures quoted ilo not lake inlo
consideration the annual crops ui
small fruits and vegetables tbat can
be cultivated during the time the
trees are growing. From three to
live acres of laud devoted to the cultivation of small fruits should he
sullicieiil to support an ordinary family if proper cultivation and ordinary
intelligence is used. There is, of
course, other adjuncts sueh as keeping of fowl which will go to mako the

succeeded if he could have cul the

this position, waiting lut help, and
then the horse became exhausted and
died. Some persons had pusstil in
the meantime, but would not go into
the water to help. The clerk fortunately succeeded in salving his bank

The decision ol the army council in
regard to the arming of dismounted
officers is Iieing severely criticised,
Dismounted officers will In future he

pistol, nnd in peace with n sword,
In peace a sword will he worn or
duty or parade, and during training
and' matioeuvncs. All carbines now
held for officers, whether as peace or
as war equipment will be returned to
army ordinance store. "Every one
knows how officers were picked out
frnm lhc men in South Afrieu," an
experienced officer sn'il recently, "and
as a consequence thc officer was armed with n carbine. Now the lesson
appeals to have lieen completely lost.
A pislol is nil very well, but a
sword is of no use to a dismounted
officer, nnd only renders him conspicuous. Officers and mon In action sliould be armed exactly alike.
A war office official stated that the
council was merely following the example of Continental powers.

Why Does
Business Grow ?
HOSE not familiar with
thc facts might well ask
thc question, as it has
been a query to many people how
a weekly paper in a comparatively
small town In the mountains
could do as much business as the
HERALD does.
But the answer is easy.
The HERALD has always endeavored to give thc people the
worth of their money, and a little
more if possible. It has published
at great expense an eight page
paper when other publishers in
the Province were content to publish only four pages and ask the
same price that is charged for the
The HERALD has never hesitated at expense to give the people
the news.
For these reasons the HERALD
leads in circulation.
The HERALD has one of the
best equipped job offices in all of
Western Canada, and employs
only artists in the typographical
line. That is why it does sueh a
large amount of JOB WORK,
and receives orders from Alberta
to Nelson.
HERALD "delivers the goods."
This is evidenced by the crowded
condition of the HERALD'S
columns, where Ads. are printed
from Vancouver to Halifax.
It is easy to see why the
HERALD'S business continues
to grow.
When you want the best of
work, or to advertise in a medium
that covers the field, or read a
paper that gives the news all the
time, see us.   We can please you.
