Hon. W. S. Fielding will actively
assume m December the ehiefi-dttor-
ship of Tin* Montriat THegraph His
return to lhe sphere of journalism as
bead of a great Lilieral daily is a
gain to lhe whole public life of Canada and io Liberalism as well as to
the newspaper which has been fortunate enough to secure his services. U
ensures for The Telegraph, which re-
eentlj absorbed the late Daily Witness, au editor-in-chief of long experience in public afiairs, alert mind,
and sound judgment. It means to
the cause of Liberalism the active
re-entry of Mr Fielding into the
light for progressive, hon.^1 and
efficient government in Canada, as a
leader of public opinion. Tbe whole
public life of Canada gains the continued service of a man of broad-vision-
ed htalesmanship. of high sense of
honor and of splendid ability.
Mr. Fielding first entered journalism on the Halifax Morning Chronicle, in 1864, at the age of sixteen.
By rapid and wcll-rnerited promotions he reached the post of managing-editor. He left that position in
1881 to accept the premiership of
Nova .Scotia which office he held continuously until 1896, when be became
minister of finance in the Laurier
ministry. His federal record of
sixteen years as a consummate parliamentarian, and as an honest and
successful administrator of tbe Dominion's finances, is written in the

tbis city as ibc same man who assumed the part of leather Kelly in th*1
successful piny "The Rosary" last
season. Mr. Ircson's finished work
as tlie lovablo priest endeared himself to thousands ot l heal re-goers
throughout tho west. Ho is admirably fitted for the mysterious dale,
a character created In New York by
Theodore Roberts, frequently referred us to one of America's three
best cliaraclcr actors.
Attention bus been called to the
successful launching ot a company in
which wo feel .satisfied all our readers will be greatly interested. The
iminense success of lhe few canning
lailoiies already working in this
province is well known lo nearly all
fruit growers and others, hence thc
belief of the directors ol Tlu* Lakes
(B.C.) Canning Co., Ltd., that Ihey
will be able to earn handsome profits. Tbe fact that this company
intends to' erect factories eventually
iu other parts of Iiriiish Columbia,
in addition to the one now about to
be put up near Nftbtlsp, widens
greatly lhe interest likely to be taken in its. operations for we are well
aware lhal there fo room tor enterprises of this kind in many places in
this province.
The company has for its main object the building and equipment of a
factory on the famous Arrow Lakes,
south of Revelstoke, for the purpose
of canning fruit and vegetables, especially in the earlier stages, tomatoes. To reduce the risks of glowing fruit, etc., to a minimum, and to
supply a sure and steady market the
company has arranged ou the on:1
band with the co-operation of the
minister of agriculture, to develop a
portion of their land as an experimental fruit farm, frooi which growers can secure scientific information
about growing for canners, on the
other band to enter into contracts
to buy from the groweis such produce as may be suitable for canning.
We have already expressed our conviction that tho time has now conn*
to those interested in the welfare of
Western Canada to encourage all
sound enterprises of this nature
which have for their object the development of the real wealth of the
country, and the arrestment of the
drain of Canadian money into the
United States, and Eastern Canada,
for llvo products which can be and
should be grown and marketed within
our own boundaries. Such propositions come as a welcome relief to thc
real estate and other similar or less
gambling ventures which have served
their purpose and in a sense paved
the way for steadier industrial undertakings.

mmmmmmmt*mmm THE   OBAN BROOK   HERALD
(By F. Page, Wilson   in the Journal
of Commerce).
It is easy to misjudge the agricultural resources of a country if "reliance be placed upon the fleeting view
presented from a railroad car. In
some places, ihe railroad may pass
through the most, or perhaps only,
highly developed farming centres; in
others, for original engineering or
other considerations, it may scarcely
Iriiigc them; and in lioth cases, the
easy misjudginent is self-evident. Ir
Hritish Columbia, while usually
s|K*aking Uio second of these alternates is 'he more common, Micro is
an additional reason for being sceptical of first impressions in Hie infinite variety of the conformation of
the province Willed causes tlio conditions presented hy one section nr
even by Ono acre, to lie utterly differ-
<ni from Uioso prcscnt-ed by the next.
For quick variations in altitude, soil,
climate and almost everything else,
it would be bard lu find Hie e<|iiul nf
this particular province.
Kven when we al tempi to arrive at
a point-blank estimate of ibe present
status of agriculture in the province,
one mcels wilh startling anomalies.
You can see acres of somo uf the finest soil in Hie world fur pasturage
ami fodder production untouched by
hand of man;, and you can read government statistics showing the enormous quantities of meal, and milk
and butter and other products whicb
are brought in from other countries.
You can see tons of beautiful fruits
. going tu waste on the orchards
•while Victoria and Vancouver eat
still more, tons of no better fruit
from Oregon and California. You
can meet men who have made small
fortunes in farming in British Columbia; and others again, wbo from general appearances would make equally
good farmers, looking over the
ground and hesitating lo face the
This sounds like damning tbe ngri-
• cultural resources of the country I
with faint praise. Yet we believe
that anybody who has been through j
the province with liis eyes and ears
open for tbe real truth will admit
that the very highest discrimination
is needed by any settler in a mind to
take up land for profitable famving
And we believe tbat the best interests ot the province are met by a
frank recognition of the fact. Right
here, before any misapprehension of
thc writers' attitude has been formed, he would like to state his belief
that sooner or later the above mentioned anomalies will be cleared
away; and that Hritish Columbia will
make good its claim to be thc finest
part of the Dominion for those desiring to farm amidst tbe best conditions for true living. One of the
most potent influences for the comparatively slow progress in the past,
that is to say, lack of transportation
facilities is being rapidly swept
away. Tho Canadian Pacilic railway
which was Hie first line lo penetrate
Ibe almost impend tabic fastnesses of
this mountain province, has over and
over again expressed its gtcat faith
in the future by building of branches
and in many other ways, while it
will not be long before the effects ol
other railroads now heing, or io be,
built will make themselves fully evident.
Kven the cause which has brought
ahout most misunderstanding for tho
province, that is, its Infinite variety,
is when properly looked at, one of its
most potent charms, llui ihis ipial-
ity of variety depends on BUOb highly
important economic factors, that   lb
will be well to go llrto Ihis RUbjeot
at. somewhat greater length in order
tn understand Hie foundations upon
which agriculture is nnd will be Curried on, vvv refer iu topography
and—in llie case of Hritish Columbia
—its very close blood-relation cli-
mate, foi iu few countries is the lnt-
' tor more dependent upon the former
than in tbat province. Hence its
variety of weather and scenery and
vegetation which we have touched upon more than once, as is in keeping
with its importance. British Columbia comprises a huge territory approximately 700 miles long by 400
miles in breadth and lying between
latitudes 10 degrees and-00 degrees,
its eastern boundary being longitude
120 degrees and bordered on. the west
by the Pacific Ocean and a strip of
Alaska. Roughly speaking therefore
the province is situated in the same
latitude as Oreat Britain, Northern
Franco, North Oennany and the
South of Sweden and partakes iu ;l
general way, and with manv modify-1
ing conditions, of the climate met
with in ihose countries, Among
these modifying influences must be
mentioned the Japan current which
Hows northward from Lite Equator
through tin* Pacific, but which is
counterbalanced in some measure hy
a return current from the Arclic regions, which not only cool the coast
waters of Hritish Columbia very perceptibly hut condenses Ibe moisture
ot tho prevailing westerly winds.
This factor in itself is sullicicul in
account for the natural humidity of
the climates of the coast, taken in
conjunction with the mountainous
conformation of a large part of Hie
whole province, if accounts for thti
extraordinary variations in rainfall
whicb distinguishes one section from
another section only a few mile*
In the eastern half of tbe province
there are two ranges of mountains,
Ihe Selkirks and, higher a still more
easterly, the Rockiies, while iu tin*
western half arc the Island and Coast
ranges. On their way to tho cast,
the moisture-laden wind of which we
have spoken, discharges a large part
of its humidity on coming into contact with the coast range, thus creat*
ing a dry belt lo the east of it. A
large part, of tho moisture travels
with the wind further east until it
strikes the higher range known as th,)
Selkirks which enjoy a molsfcr climate than thai still further cast, in
the Rockies.
This topographical formation oc-
counls for the series of dry belts
and moist belts which is one of the
distinguishing features of the prov-
ince, and it is this fact which accounts for thc enormous ideas which
have gone abroad regarding its climate. .Some people contend that
Hritish Columbia has an extraordinarily wet climate; others again that
it is too dry to grow crops. Thc
truth embraces hotn extremes; it is
extremely dry and it is cxtremol)
wet, with all sorts of variations in
ln*twi*cn, a point which makes a very
great difference when one starts to
write of agricultural conditions,
There is still another point connected
with the mountains which affects tin
climate, As they go northward,
both the Rockies and the Selkirks decrease in height, thus admitting to
lhe northern part ol Hritish Columbia free passage to tbe winds fromj
tbe Arctic regions, with reduced tern
pcrature in winter and increased temperatures iu summer. Taking all
these (actors into consideration, the

it   has until  recently hindered the

what land tbere is nil the more valuable.    Some have called the province
a "Sea of Mountains" and from
some aspects this is the case. To
the west of tho Selkirks there is an
crormous plateau or tableland about
3000 or 3500 teet above the sea-level.

lu speaking ol the topogragy of
tlte province, with perhaps only one
twenty-fifth of its area suited for
agricultural and most of this is broken, widely scattered valleys, we have
given one reason for slow progress in
agricultural advancement, Another
reason is that much of the best land
requires cither dyking or irrigation,
or clearing of heavj forest growth,
We saw land in Vancouver Island
that   we were  informed  would       COSt
well ovci $200 per acre to clear,
while iu many places the average
price would be fully $150 per acre.
Think of that, especially wbon too
price of the land has been perhaps
from $200 to $400 or more per acre
iu itself. ll is a very different proposition from the western plains

crops are aiming those for the production of whicb British Columbia is

nre profitably grown for home requirement and in many cases the'
yield is very large and the quality]
high, while the wheat is of course by,
no means hard, the average yield is
given at front 25 to 2« bushels per
acre, this being greatly exceeded
quite frequently. Of oats we have I
seen yields of a hundred bushels to,
the acre and the sample was very
fine. Harley also is a good crop.
The chief wheat producing centres
are the Okanagan, Splllamucbein,
Thompson and Fraser valleys and in
the Kamloops district. The prospects are that there will be a very
large addition lo tho wheat-growing

has already begun. There is little

When You Buy a
Watch Here
THERE is one main advantage to you over getting
it away from home. This
is it:— If the watch
doesn't come up to your ex-
potations, why you always
know where to come to have
the trouble adjusted or the
watch exchanged.
If we guarantee a watch,
tbat guarantee is binding. It
means what it says. If the
watch goes wrong, and it's
the watch's fault, we are here
to make it right with you.
Buying away from homo is
different — very different,
you'll find out if yon ever
have the experience,
Watch prices nre as low
here as anywhere in the land
for equal values.

5.   Christian    Science    denies
Editor Herald:
In our las! letter
endeavored to
show lhat   Science and Health,    tin*
text book of    Christian Science, was
so   diametrically opposed    lo      thn
spirit and purpose of Ihe Bible,  that
tin* powei t(l   heal claimed by ils author could not come from Cod.    We
shall now   proceed to indicate      the
true sourcf from whioh that power is
derived.     However, Ix'fore doing    so
permit us to dispel some adverse impressions of our spirit and motive in
treating this subject.    There is evidently   a great   gulf fixed on the one
hand bebween Christian Science,     as
taughl in its textbook, as taught by
its lecturers,    healers, etc., and upon
the other   hand us   believed   by     the
great    majority   of   those who-have
been healed hy this system.   Our persona! observation of the recruits   to
Christian    Science leads us to affirm
that the greater     part of them first
had the advantggc of Christian training in Christian,homes and in Chris
tian churches.      In our conversations
with these   we have invariably    discovered that they were unaware      of
tin* enormities to which they      were
subscribing when they united with tlm
sect.     They stand aghusl at the sotil-
destroyiiig doctrines indicated by the
writer,   as laUg.it iu Science       anil
Health and Invariably   disavow their
concurrence with them.     It is    not
uncharitable to   say    that Christian
Science thrives today, not upon    its
intrinsic merit, hut  rather upon   the
faith and character Imported lnl<
by its recruits.
Furthermore permit   us to wiin*ss
that   li -vci'llcut   morality,        the
lioast of Christian Scientists everywhere, exhibited by its devotees is
no certiitude of i's divine source.
suiting from Christian Sciences prae-
Miphists. etc., can make similar
claims, especially in tho younger
years of Iheir history. The cures re-
healers to tho same source and pow-
tloe are generally attributed hy the
face with the absurd anamoly of a
er hy whicli Christ and the early disciples healed. If this be so, we are
fully justified in asserting, and the
assertion is substantiated by fact
and reason, that the doctrines taught
in the Bible have no direct hearing
whatever upon the spiritual life of
man. Furthermore, we are face to
lace with tho absurd anamoly ol
religion thai blasphemes God, being
in turn blessed of him in the cure of
the sick, This is unthinkable, impossible.
We shall not deny the contention of
Christian Scientists that their power
to heal is   of   supernatural sources,
but we shall consider tbe teaching ol
Christ on the wonder-working powers
which he said would be performed   in
his* name.      We except,    always   in
this connection    the bona Tide divine
healing taught in the Bible.    Speaking of the events that precede       his
second advent, Jesus said in Matthew
21th   chap,   5th    verse: "For many
shall come in   my name saying 1 am
the Christ, and shall deceive many."
In verse 11   of the same "Many false
prophets      shall    arise and   deceive
many."     In verse 24: "Tbere    shall
arise false Christs and false prophets
ami shall shew signs and wonders; insomuch thai if it   were possible they
shall deceive   the   very elect." Paul
speaking of these   same events says,
2   Thess'alonians 2:0   the "man      of
sin" will be revealed "whose coming
is after thc    working ol .Satan with
all power and     signs aud lying wonders, and with all deccivableness    of
unrighteousness."        Again 2 Corinthians 11:11: "For Satan himself    is
transformed     into an angel of light.-
Therefore it is no great thing if   his
ministers also,   be transformed      as
ministers of    righteousness." Again,
1 -John 2:22.    "Who is a liar but ho
that   denielh    that    Jesus   is   the
Christ?     He is anti-Christ that denielh the Father and the Son." Again,
1 Timothy 612, of another manifestation of   Anti-Christ in the form     of
"a science falsely so-called."   Permit
us now to    collate the facts of these
passages in concise statement      Tho
characteristic   marks   of Anti-Christ
I.   He will come in lhe name of
false Christ.
2. He will manliest the dcccivahle
ss ot    unrighteousness, or a right
countess   not   based upon  lho light-
eousness of .lesus.
3. He will deny that Jesus is ihe
•1.   lie will deny the Father.
5.   He will deny the .Son.
fi.   Ho will reveal a .Science.
7. He will perform wonderful signs
and works.
8. Ho will reveal himself as an
angel of light, preaching righteousness.
A comparison of the teaching of
Christian Science with the above will
reveal the source of its healing power.
ln maiding this comparison we must'
hold in mind the concensus of opinion
of students of prophecy thai the
rather shallows of which the Anti-
do not transpire in one event, but ivrej
rather shadows of which the anil-,
Christ of the book ot Revelation is
the culmination. Now, consider tlte
comparison- J
1.   Christian  Science comes in   the
name of a false Christ. It calls itself |
Christian," it talks of Christ, it
quotes his words, and seems to exalt
Him. But, according to Science an)
Health Christ is an "idea" in incorporeal, invisible, impersonal and never
was otherwise- Ho was never born
in Bethlehem, did not die, did not
rise from the dead, did not ascend to
heaven, for heaven is a state, not a
location. Now, the Christ of the
Bible did all these things, theretorc,
if Christian Science comes in the
name of a Christ, it can only he iu
the name of a False Christ, or Anti-
2. ('hristian Science preaches a
righteousness that is in no sense related to the shedding of blood. li
says, the blood of Christ was no
more efficacious to cleanse from sin
when it was shed upon the accursed
tree, than when it was flowing in His
veins. It preaches that man is essentially as pure as Cod; that man is
co-existent and eternal with God; I
that without . this co-existent and j
eternal man Ood would he a nonentity. Therefore the righteousness,
preached by Christian Science is not
the righteousness or Christ, hut of
Anti-Christ. |
3. Christian Science denies that
Jesus is tte Christ. It says: "Thc (
spiritual Christ was infallible.; Jesus
and material manhood (that is Jesus |
nnd material manhood are eqjuival- j
cats) was not Christ." Christian
Science makes a distinction between
Jesus and   Christ, the one corporeal,
Son. An I m person at Father cannot
beget a perdonal son. .lesus fo
"the mental concept of Mary." The
Christ is an "Idea." An Idea
impersonal, an abstraction. The
fore this system denies the Son and
is Anti-Christ.
ii. Christian Scltnco comes- in the
name of Christ and of a science. It
claims to bo scientific, yet it denies
tbe very tads wilh which science
deals. The science of the Naturalist,
Hi" Astronomer, ihe Ocologlst, the
Chemist nnd iu fuel all lhe field of
Science outside Christian Science is
falsified hy il. All these are bns.'d
upon the reality of mailer, nol necessarily upon the eternity of matter. Christian Science affirms that
all things material exist only in the
imagination, and falsehood of mental
error. Measured hy human standards, Christian -Science is no science
ai all. Measured by the Word of
Cod it is "Science falsely so-called."
7. Christian Science performs
many wonderful1 works ami promises
that it will yet do greater works
than theso such as raising the dead,
producing children without natural
generation, etc.
Wc have shown that Christian
Science comes in lhe name of a false
Christ. Its powers of healing cau-
noi be of Jesus Christ, for it does
not come in His name nor power.
ANTI-CHRIST, SATAN,        the
In answer Io the newspaper editors
1 and writers who deprecate our exposure of this pernicious fraud, permit
us to affirm farther in support of
tbis conclusion lhat this system of
healing claims to be based upon the
Bible, that the same Bible warms of
Satan's manifestation of power as an
angel of light; that he sends forth
ministers to preach a righteousness
(a personal self-righteousness, an
offence Io Cod). If he can and does
these works is there room to wonder
if he should use this power to inflict
or to cure disease, when by. this
means lu* can effect denial of Jesus
In conclusion, Mr. Editor, permit
us to restate our ohjeel in writing
these letters. In the first one we
said they were written in behalf of
believers, whose faith in: Christ
would be dethroned hy this false
science. We reaffirm that acceptance
of tbis by the church of Christ, would
result in its extinction in a decade.
Furthermore, the acceptance of Chris-
lian Science theories of sin, by the
unsaved sinner, must inevitably secure his destruction. He has no need
of salvation through Jesus Christ
By your permission, Mr. Editor, we
shall write ot Mental Healing in our
next letter.
