Rt. Hon. Sir Wilfrid Laurier
************ ****************
+ .  *
* (The Montreal Herald). *
* It was not what Sir Willrid Laurier said * last night   ihat gave *
* siftnlflcar.ee to tho occasion,  rhr Kignillcance lay in    the proof the *
* occasion furnished that Sir Wilfrid is still the (UmiimitinR and out-  *
* standing ilRi're in lhc party, and thai    that   party is    in militant *
* and optimistic mood.
* Sir Wilfrid's siwt'h was a justification — almost an exultant one
* —of his policy as premier. He saitl lie had notliiUR to tegtei, and in
* words and spirit h.* showed that h*    spoke    truth,   lie  -had gone
* down fighting in wnat he consideml tlte cause of    trade freedom.
* and if President Taft cfiose to put nn alumni interpretation on thc
* results of   such freedom, neither Hit*    Liberal government  nor the
* I.ilK'tal party was in any respect responsible for his obsewlon.
* Tlte meaning of the sptxch was that Sir Wilfrid, true to the prin-
* eiples and traditions of M.rralism, had sought to widen the mar-
* krt (or the country's products.  The   particular    plan presented to
* the people had been rejected by thettli — largely through misconcep-
* tion as to its real lUCUting—aftd while it   might never again be an
* issue, the Mberal party would co.it inue to  staad   for thc greatest
* measures of trad** fitt*doni, for tho    widest markets   for Itoth pro-
* ducc.r and consumer, in the  linn belief that such    freedom was es-
* sentjul to ttie real welfare of tlie uhnlc country, and    to tin* main
* tenance of a contented west.
* This enunciation of a broad, constructive   policy     hy a     veteran
* wliiis.* strong Voice and buoyant hearing belied his "white plumes,"
* suited, if il did nut create the mood of tlie   meeting. There was a
* tang In the atmosphere which eouM imt he aterihueed to mere par-
* tisan entbiisiusm     It was ,, tileml of personal,   loyalty to a.fcreat
* chieftain, of pride in tlie manner in whicli     Im* had faced the hours
* of defeat, ut exultation over the manner    in   which he was al the
* inotneul ivntinuing the got tl Dght as cheerily as tlH»ugn he were a
* lad of twenty, of belief In lus al-ilit\ to again lead to victory.
* The meeting was iu large measure     a ivrwHial   trihule to    the
* chief   Hut 11 signified -, spirit tn castftn l.ibt-ialism   that promises

William PiHfclcy, Charles Murphy,

federal and provincial politics.
While yet be lives, Sir Willrid
Laurier has become one ol Canada's
groat historic Dgures. His place is
secure. His lame will not he obscured try the passing years. Sir .lohn
Macdonald and the Hon. Oeorge
llrown alone among Canadian statesmen ol Um formative period rank
with Uk beloved chief of the Liberal
party, wbo wns tbe guest of honor
st a Irarrquct in Montreal last week,
says tbe Toronto Olobe. Mr. Brown
wen a man of strong . views. The
spirit of the cruaader was Jits. He
cared not at all lor public office, and
much ol the pioneer work toward
political reform he did was entered
to tbe credit of others on the pages
ol history. Brown's supreme service to Canada waa not, after,all, In
emphasizing the conditions that made
conlederation inevitable, hut in urging in season and out of season the
acquisition of the Hudson Bay company's territories. He more than any
other man of bis time made possible
tbe physical Canada ol today.
Maooonald, Uw mai.ager oi
without whose craft and whose
knowledge ol human nature the Conlederation pace never could have been
carried out, was the object ol tlw
unfeigned admiration and warm aBee-
tion ol his followers. But respect ia
not always an element In affection.
And many Conservatives who cheered
lor Sir .lohn and gave bim their
enthusiastic support were very well
aware that their idol had leet ol
clay. For Sir John in his lour
years ol eclipse lollowlng upon the
I'acilic scandal, there waa not only
the sting ol defeat, but the added
bitterness of knowing that men all
around him whom be had trusted, ignored and avoided him, and would
have been glad to drive him from the
leadership of the party.
Sir Wilfrid bas bad no such heartbreaking experience. The Liberals
of Canada reaper! their leader aa|
greatly as tbey. love ar.d admire him.
His suggestion, after the defeat of
last Sefderabcr. that be be permitted
lo retire, and Ihat a new leader be
clroM-i lor the party, was not given a
moment's consideration. From all
parts ol Canada came urgrat requests
thai "The Chiel" should stay in public hie. These requests were accompanied by promises of wholehearted deration to Liberalism and
to him. That was probably th*
happiest esperiei.ee in Sir Willrid
l.aurirr's llle. Acclaim ol a minis
ter robed ia power—with offices, aad
nib's, and contrails al command—
may very well be artificial and Interested. Thr love, and admiration,
and respect of sell-respecting men in
the moment ol defeat is a very different thing. It may will be tbat

Whether the leader ol thr Liberal
pany shall return to office once mors
and die in harness as Sir .l.hn Macdonald did is hidden in the womb ol
the luturc. There is evidence on all
hands Ihat the lamentable wave ol
religk.us antagonism snd distrust
than swept over Ontario last year
and did as much as anti-reciprocity
feeling tn produce the Conservative
sweep has almost entirely subsided.

Rev. W. E. Hinilum, also spoke,
dealing particularly with the value nl

Tn the Editor of Uie Herald: I
Sir: In response to tlie query can

it depends on who Ih buying antl who

fMin^ Is -driving ibe wonls, ami wben
tlir subjtvl matter is ime little
deislood, we are apt to deseetid to a
mere expression of sentiment instead
ot mi exchuiiKc ot ideas.
All this is profoundly evident in
tbc present wWe—and warm — discussion ot woman suffrage. On either
sitle appear tlie most earnest expressions of feeling: feelings ot hope, ol
foar, of high social devotion, of intense persw.al distaste; nil of which
arc interesting as indicative of the
development of limitations of the
Tog-?t*her wHb these feelings is used
a strange array of arguments, some
so thc point, some quite btsWc it,
some boomerangs; ami these arc
urged with hreat-hless earnestness
and laudable perseverance, quite re-
f-Tirdless of effect.
As social evolution bas never waited for tlie complete enlightenment of
mankind, wc find the enfranchisement
of women goir.g on in all civilized
countries, but since tbc opposition to
it is strong enough to cause years of
delay and 'a continuous outlay of organized effort, it seems worth while
to point out the main error actuating that opposition.
It may seem difficult to select a
major error among such a self-con-,
tradictory contusion; but under all
these miscellaneous reitcrattd objections one governing conviction continually obtrudes itself. It colors all
the utterances of tbc Organization
Opposed to lhe Extension to Suffrage
to Women. It exclusively dominates
the grave opinions of pathologists. It
is tlie animus of all the hooks written against "thc woman's movement." It is the painfully visible
actuating impulse of the ill-considered
objections of "thc • man in the
street," and also of thc similar ex-
pressii ns of "the woman in the
heme." And, to come down to the
day of small things, it is the feeling
animating a leading editorial in thc
New York Times, and a peculiarly
typiccf. "Letter from Uh- People" in
that paper, called forth by thc recent impressive parade ot our suffragists.
Tbis error is due to a Qtrtajn at"
rest iii development of thought. It'
ciwisists in string iu women enly
feminine characteristics; and, conversely, seeing in all tbe complex

life is to be unwomanly, unnatural,
tt» become some sort of pervert or
monster. They arc ipoltQn of u
"dei.ahired women," as "epicene,"
M "Unsoied," as "seeking to llH-ome

The laic Mr. th ani Allen cxpteSMtl
this world-view in clear scicniiiic
phuise wlitii h;' said tbat women
were not only "imt Hm* human race—
they were not even half thc human
race, bul a lUb-BpCCh s set apart tor
purpose-- i f reproduethm, merely."
The still later Mr. II. II. MarrioM-
Watson has put it with even more
exquisite precision, saying of the
American woman, "Her -.-nr.xtit.it.oii-
al ifstlessnesK has caused ber to
abdicate those functions which alone
excuse or explain her existence."
Now comes Sir Almrotb Wright,
M.D., in a throe-column letter to the
London Times, that letter which is
said to have killed the Conciliation
Hit, whieh was then before tbc
house. Speaking as one long conversant with many female invalids,
he rashly generalizes from his personal experience of morbid pneno*
inw.a, and says, "No doctor ean ever
lose sight ot the fact that thc mind
of woman Is always threatened with
danger trom the reverberations of
Iter physiological emcrgeneb**."
He sees, In the advance ot women
Into wider social relations, only ' the
perverse aooion of suppressed, embittered, or atrophied femininity. He
sees in thorn, of course, nothing but
femininity; that which he considers
normal and admires, or which he
considers eibnormal and condemns.
The glory of*woman, according 'to
his definition "lies in her power ot
attraotlon in her capacity for motherhood, and in her unswerving allegiance to tbe ethics which arc special
to her sex."
So our Times, ol New York, in the
editorial above referred to, modestly
says*. "One does not need to he
a pn'found student of biology to
know tlmt some women, q very small
minority, have a natural inclination
to usurp tbe social ami civic tunc
tions ol men."
Simmer down this loowty piaMtered
mass of opinion ami we lind that ii
nil resolves into the one n ssr.i nipt ion—
that Women havo feminine functions
aud no ot tiers, nml that social functions are masculine. Let u.s frankly
examine these premises.
Without nailing to he any more
profound ,\ student ot biology than
the editor of our Times, we must, all
admit tbat there arc other functions
besides thc reproductive. As Ute
spread wide upou tlie earth, each species developed its own means,of locomotion, its means of self-defense,
its means of getting a livelihood; all
essential, all common to both sexes.
Variations in si/e, in color, in intelligence, in agility, in courage, differentiate one animal (rom another; all
esser.tfii, all common to both sexes.
Meanwhile, all creatures have some
means of replenishing tlw earth after
their kind, and wc, as mammals,
share in the methods of thc higher
orders, adding to the personal processes the vast advantage of our soc-

and for Ha' most part still sees, only

That slu: should concentrate all her
human faculties upon tlu* fulfilment of
her feminine functions he bas held '
quite right und proper; that she
should at any time wish to use
lliem, not as a female, hut as a
human being, is U> bim monstrous.
Su absolute has been tbis mouopoltz-

men, ami as rapidly as tliey were absorbed have become "masculine."
Merc extension in method has been
similarly classified: as where a .woman with distaff and spindle, or
foot-ruit wheel, was considered feminine, but to run a woolen mill must
he "man's worta."
Let us look at our own race history. When wc were all hunters,

Hotb male ami female tigers have
stripes. These spots and stripes
have nothing to do with the sex of
the animal, only with its species.
The possession of eyes and ears, ot
hide or hoofs, of fins or scales, of fur

these things arc not distinctions of
sex, primary or secondary; tbey are
race distinctions, purely.
If we were to count up ami to

at once that race distinctions tar

The greatest drawing card ol the

from Fernie lilled thc air with strains
of most seductive, entrancing music.
The Indians taking part were magnificently dressed and resplendent

Might Have Had a Oood Head

The man who wears a toupee does
not like it, but has thc cuurage oi

Nature never Intended that the top
of tlte head should he left entirely
without protection. A bald head is
very susecptihl.' to contraction ol
colds mid neuralgia. Wearing an
arlillcial top piece counteracts this
tendency, and, aside from the improvement in tlie personal appearance, Is amply pislifud.

Premier "Melt" McBride knows liis
British Columbia. He knows it s
well that it may bo doubted whether
lie will ever leave it lor tbe larger
and moro perilous Held ol Dominion
politics. A good deal ol Scotch
caution goes with Premier Dick's
Raieliv and dash, lie is not tlte man I
to drop tbc bone lor the shadow. j
It pleases Premier Dick McBride to
spend his summers in London, whero
lie chums willi Winston Churchill and
looks like I.aurier and behaves like a
great man, but that's as lar as It
goes. Hritish polities haven't tho
aMtaoti.H, lor him that they have!
lor Joe Martin and Hawtbornthwaite
and the other British Columbia
lteroes Itecauso Premier Dick, has
ganged nis own si/e accurately and
is mighty careful about stepping
outside his own flower pot. This ls
not a visiting journalist's opinion. It;
is what his closest Iricnds say about
Which leads back to tbe opening
statement tbat Premier MoBride
knows bis British Columbia, and to
the equally important statement
that British Columbia known ltsj
Dick McBride ar.d loves Mm ts a
Hrilish Columbian bred and born,
and that tbere are no politics and ao
parties in British Columbia except
Premier Dick McBride. The only danger Is tbnt tho Dick McBride legislature at Victoria, which is all Dick!
eioept two Socialists, will iall apart
ol Its own weight like an overgrown
lolpter shedding its claws and that
an Anti-Dick party will be lorm** on
toe principle that it's not rbjht lor
sny one msn to be too blamed successful.
Meanwhile Premier Dick McBride
flourishes like a green bay tree. He
is a young man witb a One head ol
hair and al the arts of the elder
statesmen. He knows how to enter
a public meeting Impressively late
and to take oil hit hat, gloves snd
overcoat in a wtarled-Atlas manner.
He knows how to receive a deputation of twenty in a scantily furnished
hotel-room wuth chairs lor two snd
sn sir ol democratic simplicity. He
knows how—well, to cut it abort, he
knows all the tricks in the book anal
never loses his grip on the invagination ol the people.
It seems a pity that there are not
more people in British Columbia lor
the good Dick McBride inlluencc to
exert itscll on. But the solemn truth
is tbat Premier Dick McBride ts
stronger on railways than he is on
colonjnition plans. Railways lirst,
neo-de afterwards, ray* Premier Dick
Mcllride. Whenever the people murmur Premier Nek McBride glut
them another railway. A railway al-|
ways appeals to tbe grand stand, especially in * country when then are
mountains to overcome sad scattered
valleys to link up. There- will be
125,0M,0O0 spent on railways in British Columbia in the next live years,
litis Is a spectacular policy. The only
drawback is that there are not
ough producers to keep tbe railways
busy. As long aa tbe English money

there were one hundred ami two hundred-acre farms—ranches tliey call
them hare—wntch marie unmet growing the ordiaary things eaten by
common people. But the subdividrrs

five and ten-acre lots and now tho
owners are waiting to cash in on
them on a Iront loot basis. Lulu
Island, which was looked upon as
the market garden district nl Vancouver, Is the latest spot tn bc invaded hy tbit creeping paralysis. Ol
course at the back ol It all Is the
very human desire to avoid hard
work with one's hands so long as
tbere is an easier way nf getting
ahead. Nature is so prodigal in
British Columbia, tbe soil laughs so
freely wben it is tickled, that it
seems cruel to ask it to drudge. This
explains why fruit farms arc popular—the cosy, ten-acre Iruit [arm,
basking on the shore ol a picture-
book lake, nestling at the foot nl
big brother mountain, looking nl the
world like Paradise before the sir
pent came.
The Iruit farm theory runs this
way. Tea acres of fruit lsad will
cost cleared and planted 1350 ao
acre, or 13,500. At the end ol five
yeara, when tbe orchard begins to
hear, the farm will be worth t550 an
acre, and ia ten years on tbe same
scab) of increase it will be worth
I1,1M an acre, or 113,000. From the
second year on, until bis trees start
yielding, tbe farmer should make
nwugh to pay expenses from small
fruits like strawberries axd from
vegetable, like potatoes, which sell
lor II per hundred pounds. Such a
farm, when planted witb cherries,
plums, aad tbe live commercial varieties ot apples, say, ninety treea to
the acre, should earn a net profit ol
1500 an acre on cherries, MOO
acre on plums, and MOO an acre on
•bout 35 per cent on the In-
t. That is the theory and
that ia the result provided tbe Iruit
farmer really Iruit farms, works hard
and attends strictly to business.
Wbat Ireouently happens Is this.
A laty palloaopher, witb a taste lor
briar-root pipes, vague thinking and
n suaay lite In the open sir doing nothing, makes up bis mind that he
will be a fruit farmer aad live in a

Remarks of Engineer
The engineer says: The location of your property is ideal, giving
you shipping facilities over two railways and being within a short distance ot three large smelters, in addition to many prosperous and
growing towns and mining camps. Your coal is a high-grade bituminous.
It is an excellent steam coal and nothing better could be found ior
domestic purposes as it is clean and free from noxious odors. In my
opinion you have a body of coal of several million tons proven by the
work already completed.—Respectfully submitted. (Signed) Thomas L
Brophy. Mining Engineer.
General Remarks

shafts. Samples of this coal may be seen at the offices of A. L

ant) it is not impossible that thc situation, so far as the Hritish Columbia mills are concerned, will right it-
sell to some extent during the presenl year. Trade comliUons in this
country promise eo be much better
nnd it may be that they will return
to a point where we shall be able to
absorb a much lurgi-r proportion of
iii ie output of our own mills. In that
case, the lumber manufacturers across
tin- northern border will lie relieved
nt much of the competition which
has Influenced them in tlieir advocaev

We trust sincerely Utat the hopeful
prophecy contained in* the last paragraph of fit.' above article will come
to pass without deity, comments Ihe
Canada Lumberman, Conditions art-
Pointing thut way at present and the
prospects arc rosy. Nevertheless,
with the present tarifl arrangements,
Canadian manufacturers will always
havo a sword bunging over their
heads in the shape of the possibility
of tbe same economic conditions lieing repeated during the next period
of commercial depresshg. in the 1'nited States, whenever it arrives. The
lessons of the past year, 11 taken to
heart, should lead the Canadian government to remove all uncertainty ot
this nature trom the tarifl act. It
was certainly intended by the trainers of this act that lumber surlaced
on inure thai, one side or edge, should
pay -, a!!i per cent ad valorem and until a new tar ill is passed to supersede the present one, this provision
Is entitled to be Interpreted strictly
in ftCoordar.ee with the wording of the
aet ami Uh* intentions of iis (ranters.
To say that "dutiable lumber coming into Canada, pays ., much higher
duty than Canadian lumtier in any
form going Into    tne t'ntu-d States"
is lagging tlu* Question. Thc dispute has to do wiih free lumber, nl
which,   entering tbe    C«ltf4 States
there is unlortunaeely none, as the
tarill act of the United States makes
al kinds of lumber dutiable. Under
the system ol evading the Canadian
tariff act which 1ms caused so much
-omplaint by Canadian manufacturers
if lumber, United States products
which should pay a duly of 25 pot
nt ant valorem, are tivtering Canada free, whereas similar lumber
trom Canada entering tbe United
States is subject to a duty of $1.25
per thousand teet. So fnr as duty
is concerned, the United States manufacturer has it all his own way,
comparatively speaking, as he has
protection) against every class ot Canadian product, whereas the important product of United States mills—
roiif-li lumber or lumber planed or
dressed on one side only—enters Canada free of duty.
