Victoria. B. C. Oct. 18.—The British Columbia legislature dissolves to-
Nomi nations lake place November
II ami elections November 88.
Tlie announcement follows an agreement signed between (be government
ami tlie Canadian Northern railway,
whereby tlie latter engage to construct 01)11 miles ut railway from tbe
Yellowhead Pass to Vancouver within four years (rom date. Tlie government on their part guarantee the
bonds at I |M>r cent ami as security
take a lirst mortgage on tin; road in
thi«>': province. Tbe plans ol tho
Caifadiiui Northern as specified in the
ftgreement also include the construction of a railroad across Vancouver
Island to Harelav Sound, where the
company intends to establish an
ocean port.
I>. D. Mann, vice-president of the
Canadian Northern, met tbo executive uf tlw government todav and the
above agreement was reached. The
eompanv wilt build southwards from
the Yellow-bead Pass to a point
near New Westminster, thenee connecting with Vancouver, It will
pass through Kamloops, thc route
following the south bank of tlie
Fraser, where a car ferry will connect with Vancouver Island and the
C.N.R. will take over the charter of
the Victoria & Harelav Sound railway.
Conservatives go to the countrv
strongly entrenched in the confidence
of the electorate, and the ministers
predict a sweeping victory at the
Premier MeBride said tonight: "I
have recently been carrying on negotiations with the Canadian Northern
Hallway company for extension of its
lines to tin; Pacific coast. It has
been my intention not to submit mv
railway policy to the people ot British Columbia until I was in a position to announce a concrete proposition in the nature of a contract with
a responsible oriranization for immediate construction of the road.
This I am able to do in respect of
two lines of railway ami it has therefore seemed advisable to dissolve the
house and ask the approval of the
people of the contract which tlie irov-
ernment has made. The house will
therefore be dissolved tomorrow,
nominations will be Md on November 11 and elections on November
"We have entered into a contract
with tlte C.N.R, for the construction
of a road trom the Yellowhead Pass
to Kamloops by wav of the North
Thompson river, from Kamloops to
New Westminster and from a point
near Vancouver to English Bluff, to
make first-class connection with Victoria, both for passenger and freight
and to build a railway from Victoria
to Harelav Sound. The distance in
all will be 600 miles. To assist the
eompanv in the construction ol the
road, which will cost about $50,000
per mile, the government will ask the
legislature to guarantee interest    at
I per cent upon JX'i.imu per mile. For
security the government will hold u
lilsl mortgage on the lines of the
railway in British Columbia ami will
have a covenant with the company
indemnifying tbe province against anv
loss, liv the time Ibis railway is
finished the G.N.It. will Imve ut least
6000 miles ot line through a highly
productive country. The company
has already been guaranteed Irom
other provincial governments interest
on its bonds aud has never defaulted
in its interest, uud tlte provinces
have never been called upon to pay a
single dollar. No Asiatics will be
employed on the construction and
the standard wages will he paid.
Work is to begin within three months
alter the lieutonant-rovenior elves
his assent to tlie hilt and the whole
line must he finished within four
"An agreement has also heen made
with the Kettle River Valley Hallway company for the construction
of a line from Midway t-o Nicola,
where connection will be made with
the C.P.R. The Kettle Valley company has a subsidy from the Dominion government tor the construction
ot a line between those points, and
the provincial government has arranged to revive the old Midway &
Vernon subsidy ot $5,000 per mi.e for
15b miles, and apply it to the route
referred to. This will entail a cash
subsidy of $750,000, which will call
tor an annual interest chaive of
$22,000, but the Kettle River Valley
company agrees to pay taxes on the
150 miles subsidized, which will reduce the interest charges to about
$0,000 per year. For this sum the
province will secure construction of
200 miles ot railwav through the
most productive part of the province.
This line will pass through Pcnticton
and Aspen Grove, where there arc
large copper deposits, will make a
detour to the south to obtain easv
grades until it comes within six
miles of Pcnticton, where it will
swing north to Nicola. In connection with the Nicola branch ot the
C.P.R. this road will provide a
Ihroueh route for the Boundary and
Kootenays and give a new railroad to
Spokane. Thus it will lie seen the
government has been able to secure
construction ot aliout 8«0 miles of
railway at an annual cost of $0000
and open up a largt. and productive
part of British Columbia.
With respect to development
schemes in general. Premier MeBride
promised immediate construction of
more public highways, and adjustment of taxation on a more equitable basis ami to provide for permanency of tenure of crown lands. In
conclusion he staled that on the
points of belter terms and Asiatic
Immigration, the government's nollcv
would not be changed, British Columbia must remain a white man's
A plebiscite upon the Question of
Local Option will be taken at tin-
same time as the provincial elections.
(Movie U'udcr.)
Every resident here Is, or should
be,     proud    ot      Movie's piesenl  day
mining activities and general progres-
siveness. Now, this activity and
prosperity is the direct result of
some cause operating in our midst,
and ihat this cause is the St. Kin-rue
mine no one can gainsay. Neither
ean it lie denied that upon the longevity and vigor ot the mining industry
la-re depends tbe further growth ami
lite itself ot the town.
It one great mine is good, two or
three great mines, [or similar reasons, should be douhlv good, Bound
about are numerous undeveloped mineral claims, which would indicate
thut the hills on evcty hand are veritable stotv houses nt mineral
wealth. Remembering ihis fact il
would not be in discord with right
reason to suppose that llie proocr development tit lhe best ot these near
at hand claims might result in the
duplicating ot the groat St. Eugene.
To the east ol us, a distance of
about two miles, is located the property ot the Society Girl Mining eompanv. ol which WO have all heard reports, favorable ami unfavorable, and
aboul which consequent judgments
favorable and unfavorable have been
formed. We are aware that the
great majority of these Judgments
are founded on nothing mure substantial than common everr dny rumor.
We also know tbat conclusions, to Ih-
sound must be built, not ou rumor,
but on hard, cold facts, and knowing
Ibis, does not ihe value ot our first
Impressions (if the Society Girl lie
called inlo question.
One fact there is which must appear convincing even io the most
sceptical Is: the owners of this property (local men who can afford to
squander neither time nor capital)
have been, aud now are devoting
their time, means and best energies
towards its development.
The writer, accompanied bv two
other residents of the town, about a
week ago, visited this propertv with
the avowed intention of seeing it for
ourselves am) of judging in person as
to the truth or falsehood of all we
had previously heard.
Some time am, the main body ot
ore, which is large, was uncovered
and a carload or two mined. At that
time no drainage existed and as
water interfered with successful
operations they were tor the time being suspended and work was begun on
a new tunnel to tap the winze six
hundred feet   lower down. This
tunnel will be a thousand feet long
eight    hundred  and twenty of which
are already completed, Dn the dumps
are several Ions ot low grade ore,
taken out while driving the first tunnel, and around the. winze are several
more ions ot high grade silver-lead.
The iroppings look verv promising,
and on the eastern slope ot the mountain, three thousand feet from the
old workings and on lhe same lead, a
considerable amount ot drifting bas
been dime, where wc notice about a
ton of the fiuiest galena taken out,
and much more In evidence.
At present about a dozen first-class
men are on the company's payroll.
A new blacksmith shot) and powder
magazine are under construction and
other preparations nre being made.
Boarding and sleeping accommodations are good, a new wagon road is
completed, and before the advent ot

Society (fill a surprise as "real, as iti

The numerous advertisements which
will appear in this paper tor Amcs-
llnlilen shoes during the coming
months, will attract attention and
provoke the inquiry, "Who is thc
Amca-Ilolden Co.?" For the information of our readers we may say
ihat tho firm of Amca-Holden Ltd.,
has, we believe, the largest shoe factory of any firm iu tbe Dominion of
Canada. They manufacture at Montreal, but have branches throughout
Canada, to keep them in close touch
with the special requirements of
each section, and enable them to sup-
nlv the wants promptly and satisfactorily. Naturally thc company
looks upon its distinct success as being the result of thc care taken in
the manufacture of the product, from
the very foundation of the business.
It will repay our readers to watch
carefully the diflerent styles of shoes
as they appear.
Seattle, Oct. 17.-The total attendance at the Alaska-Yukon-Pacitlc
exposition from thc time the gates
opened June 1 until the close at midnight last night was 3,740,551. Of
this number 2,705,083 were paid admissions and 1174,808 were free. It
is estimated that the fair earned a
profit or $200,000, which will lw returned to the stockholder!.
{Toronto Globe, Oct. 9.)
A long ami useful lite came to a
close yesterday, when Mr. Thomas
Thompson, ot 137 Crescent road,
Bust-dale, passed away. lie was
born in Toronto nearly 78 years ago,
his father at that early date being
one of Little York's very few BOhOOl-
masteis and afterwards a merchant
on King street.     He died in 18ii8.
Mr. Thomas Thompson succeeded
his father in business uud fur torty
years conducted "Thc Mammoth"
dry goods and clothing establishment, which was in its day one ot
Toronto's big stores. In 1HDU Mr.
Thompson retired from active business life, ami had since then lived in
Kosudalo and abroad. He was a
Liberal in polities and contested
Kast Toronto in the general election
ot 1882 for bhs Commons, but was
defeated by the late John Small. Ik-
was a lifelong member ot Carlton
Street Methodist church, and had
been associated with that congregation since boyhood. In tact, this
same congregation originally worshipped in his father's school bouse
before thc first church on Bay street
was built, in 1835. He was also an
active worker at the Fred Victor
Mr. Thompson was license commissioner for Toronto tor many years,
and was in tact about one ot the
first license commissioners ever appointed tor the city.
Deceased was one of the first Toronto merchants to "o toBritain to
purchase goods, and during his long
business career he crossed thc Atlantic seventy-eight times.' He bad
man deeply iutercsttn-* incidents to
relate about old-time business
methods and men as well as of political campaigns.
Four vcars ago Mr. and Mrs.
Thompson celebrated their golden
wedding at their Rosedale home. Mrs.
Thompson survives him, as do also
four sons-Major Boyec, formerly ot
the t-Jueen's Own Hides, and Wm. A.,
both living in Toronto, also Dr.
Percy W. a physician who has resided in London, England, tor twenty
years, and George H., barrister aud
Citv Solicitor of Cranbrook, B.C.
The luncral will take place on Monday afternoon at 3 o'clock, trom the
familv residence, 137 Crescent road.
(Mr. Thompson is tiie lather ol till Thompson, who is in charge ot
tlw; legal afiairs of the city and an
old resident of Cranbruoh. Owing
to the suddenness of the death it was
impossible for Mr. Thompson to
reach Toronto in time to attend the
funeral. The Herald joins with Mr.
Thompson's manv Iriends in this
citv in extending sympathy in this
hour ot bereavement, Tlie death ol
Mr. Thompson was a loss to Canada,
as lie had been reeogni-ed for years
as one ot the leading men in the
province of Ontario. Furthermore he
was broadminded and unselfish and
during his entire business career and
after he retired he alwavs had a
thought for the good of Canada and
Canadian people. It is pleasant,
even in a moment of grief, to be the
son of such a lather and while the
people ot Cranbrook sympathise with
CI. II. Thompson, the*- must congratulate him at this time on the reputation that his father has left behind

IVilson has stepped down and out

llie  news      surprised   nobody     who
..new anything aboul ibe inside management ol the load because, despite
Sir Charles' denials on lus t'ecent
risil to Canada, it was common gossip that changes which would materially affect the management of the
Grand Trunk were coming, it
means that a great deal more responsibility will be shouldered bv
Mr. Havs and that tho road will be
practically altogether managed from
Montreal in the future.
Charles Melville Hays, tho new
president of the Grand Trunk railway, has had one of the most
meteoric careers in the history of
the American continent. He began a
mere boy as a clerk in Lhe passeit-'e
depart ment of the Atlantic ami Pacific railroad at St. Louis, and eili-
t'iencv quickly won bim promotion inlo the auditor's ollice, and a litile
later lo a position of some responsibility in the general superintendent's olliees. In IS77 bis marked
ability secured bim the secretaryship
to Lbe general manager ot the Missouri Pacific. He rose rapidly
achieving another rung ot the railway
ladder practically every year until
In 18X7 he was made general manager
ot the Wabash Western und shortl)
afterwards of the Consolidated Wabash system, lu 1800 lie was offered
and accepted a tempting blTcr of lhe
Southern Pacific railwav to become
l-heir president. Hul lbe (i. T. P,

A very enjoyable evening was spent
in the Brotherhood of hallway Carmen's hall on Tuesday last. Mr.

There was a liberal supply of
liquid refreshments and cigars.
■Sandwiches were dealt out lo the
nungry and indeed there was nothing
laCKing lo brighten the mind and
warm the heart.
T'he programme was an impromptu
affair and was on that account, perhaps, more enjoyable than a more
formal programme would have been.
"The Old Rustic Bridge" was given bv the Burns-Sklnncr-Fcrguson
trio and much enjoyed. This was
followed by copious draughts of
liquid by most of the boys.
A very pleasing thing was tho fine

sang "Then You'll Remember Me,"
while Mr. !•'. Kyau, who has a voice
of splendid quality, sung a touching

Mr. Burns, "Cranbrook's Harry

much humor.
tie also sang "1 Love a Lassie,"
and if a few of the Cranbroo'.( i*oung

Mr. Skinner, tho man with thc

There was an interesting little
speech on an interesting topic by Mr.

bv Mr. I). McDonald. Mr. McDonald's efforts wire greatly applauded.
Perhaps the hading feature of th-

It.     L.      HORDEN     SAYS   THAT
Halifax, N. S.( Oct. ll.-It was a
larm' and representative audience
which grceled R. 1.. Horden iu
Mason's hall this evening. It was
Mr. liorden's lirst political address
simr his return from Murom- aud
was listened lo with keen interest. It
was also bis lirst visit to liis constituency since the last session, and
tho leader was given a royal welcome and greeted with round upon
round of applause durine his address.
The feature of the address was thc
announcement that plans were in the
making ior a I,ihei;al-l'oiiservutivu
convention, Two years ago, on his
own initiative, he had, utter u consultation with manv Iriends throughout Canada, made known his "Hallux platform." Public opinion, not
onlv ol lhe paily, but of the country,
had ratified thai policy to such un
exlenl Ihal the presenl government
had made (he pretence ut least of
adopting many nt its provisions,
either.hi whole or iu pari, for instance, iu regard to civil service refill m, the inauguration ot a system
of rural mail dell verv Die reorgani/.-
lilion nf the railway commissions, the
control and management ot
the government railways
bv an Independent commission ami
the reformation of the electoral laws.
The calling of a convention had been
under consideration for nearly four
years, but had been delayed because
of the extreme length of the sessions
and tin- importance of conducting active and .strenuous campaigns in 11*07
and num.
••Hut." said Mr. Horden. "the time
has now come when this important
step should be no longer'delayed, and
I am ulad to announce that during
tlie vear CHU we expect to hold a
great convention of the Liberal-Conservative partv of Canada, thoroughly representative, not onlv of every
province, but of every important district within each province.
"Oreat questions will come lief ore
that convention for consideration and
determination. These will Include
not only greal questions nt policy,
bui mailers touching the thoroughly
eilictive organization of the party;
and it is uol too much to sav thai
lhe result of the next general elections—which may be held even earlier
than we now expect—will depend upon the enthusiasm and vigor with
which the Conservatives nf Canada
unite in making that convention the
Splendid success I believe it will
Mr. Horden first referred lo his recent holiday in Britain. "To one
jusl returning from thc mother countrv," he went on, "the question
naturally presents itself: How shall
wc stand in the future within this
empire? Shall we, as Mr. Ooldwin
Smith desires and predicts, become
part of the ureal American republic?
Or shall wc follow the nsniratlons of
Sir Wilfrid Laurier. who hopes and
believes that Canada will sever her
connection with the British empire,
ns a ripe apple drops frnm a tree?
Or shall we follow the ideal ot Sir
■lohn A. Macdonald, who forsaw, and
predicted a cordial and healthy alliance with the mother countrv, bv
Which Canada would become a powerful nation, owning nlloglance lo the
RrlMsh sovereign and flag and maiu-
lainint: lhe advantage of connection
with the greatest empire of the
world'' Surely it Is the latter ideal
which today     is   being realized; aud
with il mav there come to our
people an increasing appreciation ot
lhe value of British citizenship.
"Canada has the most complete
rights of self-government. Wc hear
from members of the present administration occasional braggart declarations us to what they have accomplished in securing for Canada
complete autonomy. That autonomy in respect ol our self-government is most fully and thoroughly
realized bv all Intelligent and
.houghlful men in the British islands, who, indeed, listen with wonder and amazement to the unnecessary admonitions delivered in season
and out of season by certain Canadian statesmen upon this theme. Mr.
Brodcur says he bas secured naval
autonomy tor Canada. There is not
and there never has been for the past
tortv years any constitutional or
other dilliciilty about the establishment of a navy by Canada whenever
ils people thought fit to adopt that
Nationhood involved certain responsibilities trom which we could not
escape. One was the dutv of defending our borders and protecting
commerce und trades routes. It was
sometimes said that If Canada were
independent, tbe fleet of thc United
Slates would afford us an all-sufll-
eient protection. Did anv reasonable
man imagine that such protection
would be given without a very ample
quid pro quo?
The House of Commons last session
had laid down a certain policy touch-
inn naval defence in which both political parties united.
"It may have satisfied tbe asm rations of all Conservatives; but it
seemed our hounden dutv to place, it
possible, above thu limits of partisan
strife, a question so vital and far-
reaching and to attain lhe standard
which has tor manv vcars governed
both political parties in Oreat Britain with respect to foreign relations," said Mr. Horden.
"How the present administration
will work out the policy which was
outlined hy the resolution to which 1
have alluded remains to be seen. One
governing principle at least should
control, namely, thnt out of our own
materials, by our own labor and by
llie instructed skill of our own people
any necessary provision for our
naval defence should Ik- made, so far
as may he reasonably possible.
"In this connection may we not
hope that there shall be given a
stimulus and encouragement to the
shipbuilding industry of Canada,
which has long been lacking. Today
should be Nova Scotia's opportunity
in that regard.
"An objection which has been both
privately and publicly put forward is
the probability that the establishment of a Canadian naval force will
be attended with all thc corruption
and mismanagement, which have left
their degrading mark upon thc administration of public affairs in certain great departments of the government during recent years. The criticism is not without weight. It emphasizes the necessity of a more
vigilant and enlightened public opinion in respect of audi matters. I
think that the administration of
naval affairs in Oreat Britain, for the
pnst fifty years at least, has been
williout scandal and without reproach. Mistakes mav have lieen
made and policies entered upon have
been afterwards abandoned; but
there has been good faith and
st raightforward dealing throughout.
Mav we not trust thnt nubile opinion
in Canada will, at least in this resiled, exact, frnm those in power a
slrtcl and unfaltering adherence to
economy, efficiency nml* honesty ol
ah ministration?"
When Children Arc Injured!
Children are always sustaining
cuts, bruises, burns, etc., and not
infrequently contract ringworm,
si alp diseases, and similar skin
troubles at school. Mothers will
find Zam-Buk without equal for all
these accidents ami diseases.
Mrs. Thomas Allen, 156 Water
Street, St. Mary's (Ont.>, savs
"My (laughter Mildred, 4 vcars old,
was severely burned by falling on a
hot flat iron. She was burned on the
neel, instep, and on the thigh very

Buk, which eased the pain, and in
ilie course of a few davs the wounds
were thoroughly healed."
Mrs. Otorgc Aldridge, 12 Louise
Street, Stratford, says: "While slaving barefooted about the yard my
sou Berlram, 11 years old, stepped on
a broken glass bottle, which cut
very deeply into his big toe. The
cut was so deep that I sent for a
doctor and had the foot properly
dressed, the doctor leaving a lotion
tu he applied daily. Under this
treatment, however, the wound seemed to net no better, but on the contrary inflammation set in. A kindly
neighbor then recommended Zam-Buk.
We obtained a supply, and after a
few applications tlw child seemed to
rest better, and the pain was verv
much reduced. In a few davB, under
the Zam-Buk treatment, tlie wound
assumed a better appearance, and
from that time healing was very
rapid. Inflammation and soreness
were finally completely banished, and
in ten days from the first application of Zam-Buk, we took thc band-

San Francisco, Cul., Oct. Iti.—.lack
Johnson retained lhe heavyweight
championship of the world bv knocking out Stanley Kctchcll iu the
twelfth round.
The climax ot the fight was crowded into a4 seconds. Up to the beginning of the twelfth round there
had lieen little on which to forecast
the winner. The men clinched and
wrestled to Johnson's corner. The
negro broke away, and poising himself, dashed at kctchcll, who sprang
lo meet him. Kctchcll drove his
right at the black's lowered head.
Johnson ducked and tbe blow landed
behind the ear. He stumbled, fell
ami stretched out on the door, landing heavily.
Ketchell backed toward thc ropes
with a faint smile on his haltered
blood-streaked face. Johnson rose
slowly as though dazed. As he
straightened to his knees he looked
at Kctchcll and wildl- leaped across
the ten feel that senaratcd them.
His right shot to tho white man's
jaw. His left crashed to the stomach ami the right swim- again with
the speed ot lightning, catching Ket-
chell's head as he reeled backwards
from the onslaught. Kctchcll dropped in a heap and Johnson, unable
lo stim his rush, sprawled ueross his
beaten rival's legs and fell full length
The negro sprang to his feet with a
hound but Kctchcll was out. Once
as the seconds were counted over bim
he feeblv moved his arms and rolled
his head, lie gave no other sign of
life and his seconds picked him up
from the Door barely conscious. Johnson was still dazed. He clung to
the ropes and looked about him a
bit bewildered. The crowd broke into murmurinirs and seemed unable to
realize that the fight was over.
Ketchell won manv friends hv bis
showing todav. From the time he
red thc ring until he was carried
out he was game to thc core. Out--
weirhed, over-reached, and in everv
wav the physical inferior, he foueht a
cool, well-planned light. His face
was puffed and he was bleed in-* at
tlic nose and mouth before three
-oumls had passed, but he ke"t following the ncirro about llie rlw undaunted. Johnson a'-Tared to he
holding himself buck almost all of the
Johnson said: "He is a good puncher and a strong man. 1 must say
that lie has riven me a sorer chin
than I ever had before."
The tight hv rounds was as   follows:
Round 1.—The men did not shake
bands. Johnson towered above bis
adversary bv several inches. The
champion scored almost immediately
with a hard left hook to the stomach. "Make him lead," veiled thv
spectators to Ketchell. "Ketchell
iirently was determined to make
the black lead and sparred lor it for
half a minute. Johnson, at long
range shot his left lo the face twice
witli lightning like rapidity. Kelt-hell forced the black against the
ropes but the latter writrgled away
without receiving a blow. The bell
rang with the men in the center ot
the ring. It was a tame round, both
men fighting with extreme caution.
Ketchell looked nervous throughout.
Johnson smiled.
Round 2.—They run to tlic clinch
and the referee pried them apart. On
the break Johnson shot a straight
left to the nose and soon then-alter
duplicated it. At every clinch Ket-
ehell was playing with short arm
blows for the stomach. In a clinch
Ketchell uppcrcut hard with his left
lo the jaw. This angered the champion, who rushed in, landing left and
right to tlie body and Ketchell slipped to the lloor with considerable
force, lie was up quickly and rushed in, but had great dilliciilty In
get I inj; under Johnson's long reach.
Johnson merely toyed with Ketchell
until the bell rang. Ketchcll's face
showed grim determination as he
took bis seat.
Round 8.—They sparred perlunctor-
ilv for fully .'IP seconds ami then closed in, swinging right and left at
elnsc range, Ketchell landing on the
hodv once with thc right, Ketchell
drove his right high on the negro's
breast and as thev clinched Johnson
upnercut twice with his right. The
referee separated them. Thev again
rushed in close, Johnson puttim* in
several right nnd lefts to the stomach. The white man unnercut with
the left to the face ns 1hc men broke
from a clinch. Just before thc
round ended Johnson swung his
right on lhe jaw. Ketchell went tn
his corner, however, and looked
fresh. Johnson kept up a running
(Ire of conversation with his seconds
during (he rest.
Round 4.—Ketchell opened with a
left to the body to which the champion replied with two weak lefts to
the nose. Kctchcll again essayed to
force Johnson to lead, to which the
champion failed to respond. Ketchell showed unexpected cleverness in
blocking the negro's lead, whenever
the negro chose to lead. Johnson
Hung his left twice to the face and
the men sparred at long range. Johnson working in a straight left to thc
face. Neither man showed damage
at the end of thu round. Few leads
marked the round, Johnson having a
shade the best of it.
Round G,—Each missed a swing and
then Ketchell landed a lead to the
body and followed with another left
to the jaw. Johnson countered with
a left to the stomach. Johnson
shot out his left catching Ketchell on
both hands as the latter threw up his
guard and Ketchell was sent to the
Hour. He came up smiling, however,
Johnson gave him a warm reception,
lie uppercut with a right to the jaw
and raked Ketchcll's race with a succession of lefts lo the jaw. Ket-
cbell continued to force the pace but
was met with a left to the nose
which started the blood. Johnson
had a great lead in the round ami It
looked as though he was holding
Round 7.—Johnson swooped in two
lefts in the nose. Ketchell countered
with a hard left hook lo the body.
Johnson shot another straight; left
to lhe nose and Ketchell missed
fearful swing tor the jaw. As thev
closed in, Johnson upnercut wilh
right lo thc jaw, and Ketchell used
llie negro's shoulder as a mat with
which to wipe the Mowing blood (rom
his nose. At close quarters John-
sou landed blows on the nose and
face. Kctchcll swung his left with
terrific force and caught lhe champion good and solid ou lhe jaw, raising a hi - lump that was immediately
perceptible to the spectators. It was
by far the cleanest aud best blow of
lhe light and the immense crowd
rose to its feet, veiling gleefully.
Itound 8.—Johnson's smile had vanished as he came up. He immediately closed in, landing twice with the
left to the face. The fighters roughed it, shoulder to shoulder, and Ketchell sent in a hard right uppercut
to the jaw. The referee then separated the men, Johnson landing a left
and right to the face as thev broke.
Ketchell missed a terrific right swin
and almost went through the ropes
from the force of the blow. John-
sou forced his opponent hack gradually and landed a left to the jaw. Ketchell again missed a terrific right
swing and nearly went through the
ropes from its misdirected force,
Ketchell ran to his corner smiling,
amid thc cheers of thc crowd.
Round 8.—They closed in, each
landing short arm rights on the
face. The referee was forced twice
to break the men from clinching, The
champion sent iu four stinging rights
to the face, but Ketchell did not
break ground. On the contrary he
rushed iu, hammering at tlte champion's stomach, but Hie blows were
s mo the ail. Kctchcll planted his lelt
over the ribs aud Johnson countered
with u short left book lo the jaw
Johnson again hooked his left to tin
law and a clinch followed, Johnson
broke it up with a nasty straight
left to lhe face and the round ended
wilh the champion enjoying the
Round 10,—After a clinch Johnson
sent in two stiff lefts to the stomach
and (iiiicklv shifted to thc jaw, where
he connected twice and Ketchell
stalled spitting blood. Johnson
wrestled Ketchell to thc floor and
lifted him up aud placed him in the
center of the ring. In the midring
rally Johnson sent three straight
lefts to Ketchcll's sore nose, starting
the blood afresh- Johnson again
wrestled und Ketchell almost lost
his balance. Johnson got Ketchell
against the ropes, sending a hard
right to llie stomach and Ketchell
winced. Johnson patted Kctchcll on
(the stomach with his onen hands as
j the hell clanged. Ketchell looked
worried as he sat in his corner he-
11 ween rounds.
| Round IL—After desultory sparring
1 Ketchell whipped his left to the kid-
' nevs aud missed two hard swings (or
Uie jaw. It was noticed that Johnson's right upnercut which he used
with such good effect in his other

There is ono potut in lhe history
of a man, where friend and foe alike
ean take common ground, and that is
at tlie graveside. Here for llie lirst
time, the mists of patty feeling vanish and the. man stands in the
mind'!*; eye just as lie was. We
judge him then entirely from the
standpoint of liis ability, honesty aiftl
sineerily. Sherman was undoubtedly a Wr.. Iradec of men, and the men
reeo-tfii/ing this, gave him his birthright. During that leadership, he
Keadfastlv promoted the men's
cause with no mean ability, and although many, may eritieisc a number
of his actions, all must agree that
those actions were inspired by a
single-hearted desire to make the
best possible bargain on behalf ot the
workers he represented. He died
poor and, in this age of graft-—considering the opportunitus that lu*
had—that fact is something for the
crowd to he thankful for. If anv-
t li 1 ti ir is lo be done lo prevent those
left behind from suffer ine from the
results of the dead man's honesty, i
should he done miicklv, for thc mc-

man—is scum forpotttti iu the quick

was willing to construct a trallic
t>i'iil"e on tlte proposed bridge across
Hurrard Inlet and maintain it Iree of
tolls, he would lie prepared to have
the province duplicate the Dominion
subsidy. The Liberal party would
be prepared to aid the line Irom
Vancouver lo Kort tleorge, and thc
B. .t N. to build to the north end ot
the Island.
It would also aid tlte Victoria and
Barclay Sound, out through Metcho-
sin and Stroke and on to Alberni,
forming a loop line with tho E. St N.
whieh would op.cn an immensely rich
district and make it tributary to
Victoria. They would use their influence to get a Dominion subsidy
Irom Nicola to Princeton and woutd
do the same for the Victoria and
Barclay Sound, and thc extension ot
the line to the north of the island.
They would know no sectionalism,
would lose sight of mainland or island, Victoria or Vancouver, and look
to the advancement of the interests
of British Columbia.
The average cost ot constructing a
mile of railway in British Columbia
was Mil.tiliO. Subsidies of one thousand miles nt $5,1)1111 a mile would
amount to K,000,(11)1), and even at
live per cent, the annual charge for
interest and sinking fund would bo
but 1250,1100, fivc-cighlhff ot one per
rent per annum for forty years on
the outlay that would involve.    II it
was remembered tbat probably sixty
millions more ot capital would come
in in other industries thc tax would
be one-lourth of une per cent.
A statement prepared by the audi-
tor-general of Canada, showing tho
expenditure in British Columbia, demonstrated the enormous error of the
statement prepared hy the MeBride
government. Under the head of
public debt the auditor-general found
then' had lieen an expenditure in thc
province ol -fi.llti.llUO; the provincial
statement made it J8,4Stl,000>. For
civil government thc figures were.,
respectively, StiSO.OOO and fci'ii.iuiii,
for pensions, Jli'J.OOO and Jiii.nuu,
mi militia, tl.T0tt.000 and J.tS'.i.iiiiu,
on mail service, (3,070,000 and 1691,-
lllllt. In the lirst Si years since the
province entered confederation the
auditor-general showed that thero
bad been expended in tlte province
•511,152,506, while the provincial
statement only accounted tor $32,,-
154,38a. un error ol $25,698,121. Tlic
provincial government had misled Unpeople to that extent. The government was seen boasting—very properly—of this as the richest province
ami yet whining that the people In
the "cent belt'' did not give them
enough monev to spend.
The best claim British Columbia
had, Mr. Oliver said, was itt tlte
tales charged on thc 0. I'. II. He
had looked into the matter carefullv
and that was thc best claim the
province had; and it had never been
advanced. When lie got a resolution
passed for the presentation of the
case to the railway commission here
last spring the provincial government
threw away the case.
In regard to the Asiatic question
Mr. Oliver asked what any provincial
government had ever done to stop
Asiatic from coming in bete.
Whatever had been done to keep tbem
out was done by tlte Dominion government. And while labor unions
ami Conservative papers claimed that
Dominion regulations were not clfcc-
tive when there was a rumor that
the (i. T. P. wanted to bring in
Orientals, these same people denounced the government for a supposed
readiness to remove thc restrictions.
The record ot tho McUride government was that it shouted white and
voted yellow in the house everv time
there was a proposal to nut in a
white labor clause In anv contract.
"Vou are responsible vourselves if
you do not want these people here,"
continued Mr. Oliver. "You have a
Public Health Act under which thc
govcrnor-in-councll has power to
make regulations as to dwellings.
How many fire-traps have yott in
Victoria, where people would be
roasted to death by thc hundred in a
Ore? How many dens of filth arc
there, Inhabited by hordes of Asia-
ties? It will be the aim of thc Liberal party to put this in force it we
are placed in power. We will have a
rigid inspection of all places ol human
abode to sec that they are fit for occupation. Wc will have no Lampson
street schools. Wc propose to sec
that health and sanitary conditions
arc lived up to by those Asiatics,
wc propose under the Health Act to
make'these people and every other
people measure up to the white man's
standard in British Columbia.
(Cheers.) Vou know perfectly well
the Dominion government would
never think of interfering il we work
along sane, practical lines, such as
Mr. Oliver dealt shortly with the
necessity tor opening up agricultural
areas to the actual settlers, and
pointed to the lact that seven million dollars worth ot agricultural
products which should be produced at
home have to be imported every year.
Today large quantities ol land, timber and mineral locations have gone
into the hands of Americans, who
were holding land at such high
prices that settlement was retarded.
This was not a party matter at all;
the man who put party before province was a traitor to his country. He
had no quarrel with those who held
these areas now as they had got
them under the laws, but experience
was teaching tbe people that a
change was needed. Areas into
which settlers could to should lie
surveyed and mapped, and information be readily obtainable and the
land given free to men who would
use it immediately.
In the matter ot timber the leader
recalled how the government had voted down the verv proposals thev
were now going to adopt. He advocated allowing municipalities, which
needed more revenue to meet increasing demands on them, to lew
and collect on personal property instead ol the provincial government
getting it.
In eoncludin- Mr. Oliver called upon
llie electors to welsh thc record ol
the government and decide that in
the interests ol the nrovince ft
change of government was needed.
The following resolution was movtd
hv A. B. McNeill, seconded bv W. K.
Houston, and adopted:
"That tho Liberals of Victoria in
meeting assembled endorse thc policy
enunciated bv our leader, John
Oliver, that we pledge ourselves tu
disseminate those principles that distinguish thc Liberal party from the
Conservative party, now in power in
this province; and that we do our tit-
most on the first opportunity to elect
representatives to the legislature,
who shall give efiect to those nrin-
ciples in laws that shall be placed
on the statutes ol this province.
The singinir ol the National Anthem
closed thc proceedings, after which
Mr. Oliver was auicklv surrounded
bv friends congratulating him on his
selection as leader.
Men seek for honors often because
they have lost honor.
Forgetting self Is the secret of
finding satistaction In life.

II you believe iu Cranbrook keep

Premier MoBrlde bus dissolved parliament and the election bus liei-u
called Ior the 25111 ol November, with
nomination on tho llth. There don t
seem to lie much excitement over tht-
elections in Craubrook or in other
places. Mr. McUride bus mude a lot
nl friends throughout the province
uml liis prestige mav tuake trouble
Im- his followers, us it is bringing
nut many rivals Ior nominations in
lbe different districts. The coming
election will lie Hit- quietest that the
province lias bud fur some time, as
tin- people urc lukinis very little interest iu the mutter. Here iu Cralt-
brook very little is being suid. Only
tne names of Thomas Caven aud A.
Leitch being mentioned on the Conservative side, and no one bcintr mentioned aside Irom Dr. King, on the
Liberal. What the result will lie il
Is impossible to say ut this time.
Next Monday, the 25th, is Thanksgiving l>uv. We here iu Crunbrook
have u lot lo lit- thankful for. We
liuve a miod lown, we have a good
ilistriet and we liuve u I'ood country.
There is no room for pessimists ill
lliis country. A mun who cun raise
bis voice urainst Western Canada,
against the opportunities presented
hero, against the chances lor cupilul
uud energy, should go uwny hack and
sit down. We have tlie best country
there is in Uu- world tnduy und it
is for tlic people to lake advantage
of the prospects that are tillered.
Thut is why we an- talking Inr Cranbrook and East Kootenay.
We see liv the Lethbridge lleruld
thut W. A. Buchanan, has been ap-
iiiiintt-il as a minister ol the Alberta
government without imrtlolio. Good
for "Old Buck." He is one of the
best men iff Alberta und we look In
see him in tlie future lo be the meni-
icr ot thut province. We liuve known
"Buck" as a newspaper man. we
have known bim us a man nnd thei
don't make hotter in Canada. lit-
came we.s-t from Ontario and adapted
himsell lo tlie ways nl Western
people, he made himsell a man
* among men, lie Jumped into the harness and worked for the advancement
of tlte west. Southern Alberta owes
a heavv debt to W. A. Buchanan, because he bus devoted llie best energies ol his life In I lie welfare and
development of thut section ol the
country. What wus good for the
people, whut wus good Ior tho countrv. whut wns good for tho province
W. A. Buchanan stood out for. When
the people of Southern Alberta and
the government of Alberta honored
.Mr. Buchanan they did credit to
themselves. Wc liuve the pleasure ol
knowing liim as a man, we have the
pleasure ol knowing bim as a Irietid
ami we have the pleasure of knowim

One ot the blessings of being
needy is that there are always some
who are more so.
Some think they are standing hy
the faith when they are but frozen
in their tracks.
Many a person shows his faith in
the wisdom of his god by offering a
dime to cover a dollar sin.

Mrs. G. T. Rogers was given a surprise party last Kriday night by her
many friends in this city, who gathered at her homo and presented her
wilh a magnificent fish set and soup
spoons. Mrs. Rogers is a ladv who
is held in high esteem in this city, as
she has heen one of those who has
done everything in her power to help
along- every movement in Cranbrook.
It is a pity to lose from a city like
Cranbrook a woman like Mrs. Rogers, and a man like her husband, O.
T. Rogers, who was the first mayor
of Cranhrook, a man who-had tbe
confidence   of all the people ot   this
eity ami whose departure will be regretted by every individual in this
town. The Herald don't like to say
much in a case of this kind, but it
miisi declare that good men like
Gcorgo T. Rogers, have uo right lo
leave Cranbrook. He has liven a
good man for the town, lie has lieen a
good man for the community, and wo
don't like to have such men leave as.
Yet, Whatever !*r. Rogers engages iu
iu the future Ihe people will wish him
every prosperity. When we lose bim
ami bis good wife we lose two of the
best people who ever lived In Craubrook.

You don't consult a cheap pettifogger when you need legal advice and
expect to win out.
You don'l consult a quack when
you need u physician.

Liberals of Victoria j?ave a rousing
welcome ou Tuesday to the new provincial leader uf the party, John Oliver, ol Delta. Always welcome in an
audience of Liberals in the capital,
Mr. Oliver was more than ordinarily
well received on the occasion of his
lirst visit here as leader of the very
live and forceful opposition in the
legislature, A suggestion that Mr.
Oliver Ik a candidate in the eity in
the next election was received most
Tbe leader made a strong speech,
outlining what tbe MeBride government hud done to lose the confidence
of the people, and what thc Liberal
party bad to propose if the electors
givo them an opportunity to conduct
tho affairs of tho province. Ho was
listened to with great interest, and
his remarks were frequently applauded.
"I can assure my Liberal friends ot
the eity of Victoria that I heartily
appreciate tho kindness with which
thev have received thc announcement
that the Liberal members ot the
legislature have seen lit to choose
mc as their leader," said Mr. Oliver,
when the applause which greeted him
bad died down. "I appreciate it bo-
vond the power of words to express
lo you on this occasion. The position has been entirely unsought by
mo, I cannot hope to fill the place so
lotra and ably filled bv Mr. Macdonald, and 1 think I may say tor the
Liberals in the legislature and in the
province that be alwavs had the fullest confidence of the Liberal partv,
and that it is with the ereatcst regret we have to face -the loss ot his
But Mr. Macdonald is not the
onlv Liberal iu the province who has
been called upon to take a rcallv
more sacred trust—which a place on
the bench undoubtedly is. The mrm-
hers ot our judiciary hold ollice at
the pleasure ot thc Klue through his
representative in Canada, on good
conduct. In their hands arc life aud
death, the general administration of
justice, and it reflects great credit ou
the Liberal partv ot British Columbia when you cast your mind backward, that such a number of illustrious men have been called from the
ranks of the party to fill high and
sacred positions on the bench, not
onlv iu British Columbia but
throughout the Dominion.
"I notice that since the announcement of my selection of leader some
of our Conservative newspapers have
bad something to say on the matter,
and some references have not been
conceived in the verv best spirit. Thc
Vancouver Province referred to my
selection as a hole-and-corner one.
Well, I have been chosen for an honored position, and 1 believe I have
the confidence of the Liberals of the
province. (Cheers.) I want to say
that I look upon the position as a
temporary one. There are many
men in the Liberal ranks who are
much more capable ot filling it than
I, and I hope when the election
come, whether this year or next,
several gentlemen will be returned
on our side, and that on more able
shoulders mav tall thc task of leading thc Liheral party in this province."
There was a general chorus of disapproval and ot cries ot "You're the
leader for us."
"lt has been said repeatedly that
the Liberals of British Columbia were
disorganized, defeated, discouraged,
had nothing to fight for," continued
the leader of the opposition. "I
frankly admit that our organization
is not what it ought to be. One ot
the first things wc have to secure
that organization Is to show the
partv and the people ot this province
that there is a reason for the existence of the Liberal party, that there
is good cause why it should be ner-
fectly organized, and that is whv I
speak to you tonight.
"Some of our opponents se" 1 tiave
faculties of destructive criticism; that
anv man can pull to pieces, but it requires a statesman to rear new edifices. In that latter respect I think
our party will compare favorabU
with our opponents. But I wish to
show that there is a reason for our
criticism of our opponents, and
that we are not only able to
criticise their actions but to outline
a policy which, it wo are placed in a
position to carry it out, will redound to the honor of the province."
Tbe leader of thc opposition went
on to say that lie would refer to
some of thc doings of thc MeBride
government bv way of clearing the
ground, It was a boast of the Conservatives that thev had found the
treasury depleted and the province
bankrupt, and that thev had chanced
conditions to one in which there was
a surplus of a million and a quarter.
Hut the MeBride government did not
create the magnificent forests, did
not deposit the minerals, did not un-
ilerla- the sandstone with coal. The
Almighty had done this, and all the
Conservatives had done was collect
toll trom those who were trying to
make use of these, and by so doin
augment thc revenue.
A glance at thc estimate of revenue
presented in 11)07 and thc actual results of thc financial year ending
.Line BOth, 11)08, would show whether
the minister of finance was such a
marvel ot ability. The revenue ho
had estimated at j:-J,2!H,176.titi-he
got right down to cents—whereas it
was actually $5,031,372, ft trifling
matter ot eighty per cent from the
estimate. There were lots of better
guessing to be soen. From timber
lands and royalties a revenue of
$750,000 was estimated; the actual
rreeipts were $2,258,568, a mere
bagatelle of being within 300 ner
cent ot guessing right. This was
what was called financial aWlltv.
Land sales were to realize $300,000;
they produced $588,000; again the
minister had guessed within 80 per
The lands department had shown
Its abilit" also. Vancouver had lost
thousands of dollars and suffered
erent loss in order to force street
crossings over tlie 0; P. R. tracks.
Yet with that example hetore them
the government and legislature; in
spite of power given the lieutenant-
governor in council, had ratified n
contract which placed Prince Rupert
in tlic position tbat in four miles and
a half ot water front owned bv the
railway company there wore onlv two
streets projected to run to the water
—and even then only by overhead
bridges to be built by the province.
Waste of money was no new story
with the government. Take a little
matter like thc repair of a countrv
bridge. Plank worth $327 had been
purchased, but to haul it three miles
and a halt cost $255. As showing
thc love of the McHride rovernment
(or the laboring man it might be
said that two nun were paid 132.60
eaeh to relav lliis planking, a foreman trot $08 to boss these two men.
a superintendent got $124.50 to boss
the foreman, and over the top of
him a-nin was a road superintendent
who i-ot $1600 a vear and expenses,
Fault mlghl be found with the leader
of an opposition for rcferrin" to
these linns, but there thev were,
spread on the records,
"I want    to touch on a question
whieh has been a burning one here
for years, and oue which led to the
defeat of Hon. Win, Templeman,"
continued Sir. Oliver. "This is in
connection with the Songhces reserve,
lust so long as our Liberal friends at
Ottawa consent to follow Premier
MeBride in what he calls the game ot
politics—he calls it a game, but 1
call it serious business—just so long
thev can expect nothing but defeat
"The provincial government has a
reversionary interest in these lauds
and before the Dominion government
can ""ive up tho reserves thev must be
in a position to give a clear title.
The Indians are no toots, and even if
they were they have plenty of advisers in Victoria—("That is so")—
to keep this question open. Thc
provincial government has been playing a double game in this question
and it is to the discredit of the Liberals at Ottawa that they have allowed the provincial government to
pet -awav with their game. In September, 1000, Frank Pedlev. superintendent of Indian affairs, came out
here and saw the provincial government and entered into a verbal arrangement with them whereby they
agreed to anv contract the Dominion
government might make for thc removal of the Indians, on condition
that their reversionary rights should
attach to tbe proceeds as they
would have attached to the land, a
verv reasonable proposition and very
fair on the face of it. In March,
1907 Mr, Pedlev asked the government for an answer. In the meantime there was a provincial election
and to curry favor with the electors
here an order-in-council was passid
rranting thc city a reversionary
right in 43 acres, hut the Ottawa
government was never notified and
went on with negotiations for months
in ignorance of it.
"A tew days before, on February
28th, Mr. Fulton prepared a memorandum on which an order-in-council
was based, setting forth that when
anv lease or transfer of anv Indian
reserve took place thc provincial -ov-
ernment should immediately claim it
and take possession ot it on the pari
ot the province. Premier MeBride
replied to Mr. Pedley that in view
of the actions of thc Dominion "ov-
ernment, the provincial government
would have nothing more to do with
tbe matter. During all this time
and right up to the Dominion election tho Conservative patters were
hounding the minister of inland revenue that he had not settled the
Songlices reserve difficulty after the
provincial government had made it
impossible for the Dominion government to deal with it. Time went on
and the Dominion government, at thc
solicitation of the Liberals of Victoria, took it up again and wrote the
provincial government asking for an
order-in-council giving it power to
deal with it, the province to have the
same right over the proceeds as it
would ordinarily have over the lands.
In June last the provincial government passed an order-in-council, subject to the city's reversionary right.
As a matter of fact it is iinnossihlc
todav for the Dominion government
to do anything.
"I say it fearlcsslv. and I am prepared to meet Premier MeBride anv-
where on it, that the provincial irov-
emment has made lt utterly imnos-
siblc for the Dominion government to
settle this reserve question, and at
tlie same time their p" -rs have heen
hounding the Dominion government.
1 st* Mr. Pedley has been asking the
citv council to convey its reversionary rights to thc Dominion and that
the council so far has not seen fit to
do so.
"I want to go back to February,
1607, and tell you that no people
were ever handed a bigger gold-brick
than vou. There is absolutely no
statutory authority behind that order-in-council. The measure giving the province power to act in this
way was not passed until the session
of 1008 and the order-in-council ot
February, 1907, is absolutely illegal
and not worth thc paper it is written
on. You have as senior memher
from this city in tlie premier the man
who is, above all others, responsible
for this state ot nITairs. What nre
vou going to do about it; send bim
back at the head of the polls thc
same as last time?"
"We should sav not," was the emphatic reply of thc meeting.
The uttorney-general was the
author of the policy of fighting Ottawa, Mr. Oliver went on to say. He
hud fought them on the fisheries, on
the right of control over water in the
railway belt-—rumor had it that be
would even claim control over the
entire railwav belt—and on every
pretext possible. In every court he
had gone into the claims he advanced on thc part of thc province
had been decided -against him; he
could not bamboozle thc judges
though he could thc people. In thc
prosecution of thc Fraser river fishermen the imposition of fines and costs
had becn decided against him; be
could not bamboozle the judges
though he could thc people. In the
prosecution ot thc Fraser river fishermen the imposition ot fines and
costs had been declared illegal by the
supreme court, but the attorney-general's department refused still to return the money. Tho electors would
remember the outcries about .lannn-
cse and Asiatic labor while the attorney general was going about with
tlie coin from his client Qotoh in his
pocket. What was going on in his
department? There had been for
some time a number of murders going unwhipped ot Justice—Gun-a-Noot,
the Midway murderer, the bandits
who held up the C.P.R. trains, the
murderer nl   Constable Decker.   Vic
torians would remember the Lamp-
sou street school matter.
"What about a government that
took a sum of money from the man
who jeopardized the lives ot your
children in that building? That ls
the wav thc province is being governed and il is about time the people
put u stop to that state of affairs.
"In matter of education, where
was the. university, where was thc
agricultural college in connection,
where was tbe experimental farm?
11 was said that if there was to be
an earlv election it would be because
the government bad secured a satisfactory contract with the Canadian
Northern railway to bring its line io
the sea coast of British Columbia. It
seemed to bim he had a recollection
that iu 1898 tho Turner government
made a similar contract with thc 0.
N. R, Two teams and a scraper in
tho neighborhood of Pcnticton represented all that was done, and it was
said that with a microscope old Inhabitants could show the dump. He
had, loo, a Imzv recollection that iu
1002 thero was a contract with the
C, N. It. to bring its lino to Victoria, and the Conservatives were returned wilh a handsome majority on
the bead of it—but where was the
railway? Surely with a firm that
bud lent itselt to two bogus eon-
tracts with the government the
people wanted some satisfactory
proof of a contract, and that it
would lie carried out when the government made such a claim (or support,
"I don't go around condemning the
government as totally bad," said Mr.
Oliver. "I believe it is bad, but I
believe there is a possibility of its
being worse, and if vou return it
again it will have a chance to lw a
Meal deal worse before vou have an
opportunity to deal with it again."
Tbe McHride government's record
on railwav matters was a poor one,
Mr. Oliver went on. In 1903-4 the
speech from thc throne foreshadowed
co-operation with the Dominion government in the building of an all-
Canadian railway into thc Yukon.
Nothing more was ever heard of cooperation. The Grand Trunk Pacific
project, entailipg thc building of seven hundred miles of railway and the
doubling of thc habitable area ot the
province, was opposed in every way
hv the provincial government. Today
thev boasted of selling lands in
Prince Rupert to the extent ot a
million dollars, while maligning the
government whieh made it -possible
for that sum to be realized. In
IIMI") the speech declared that the
province could not get on without
railwav construction, hut nothing
Since the MeBride government had
come into office thc Liberal government at Ottawa had provided 700
miles of the G. T. P. without cost
to the province; subsidized 180 miles
of the Kootenay Central (rom KUo
to Golden, united the main line and
Crows Nest Pass line, opening up a
splendid country; subsidized 50 miles
of the Kettle River Valley line to
open up the timber, mineral and agricultural lands on the north fork of
the Kettle; the Midway & Vernon
line had received $6,400 a mile from
the Dominion, and was voted $5,0110
a mile from the province, but was
not built because when thc company
bad made arrangements witb New
York capitalists ior the financing of
the project, Capt. Tatlow said in
Montreal that the government did
not recognize the company's right to
the subsidy; had provided a subsidy
for a line from Nicola hy way ot
Pcnticton to Carmi; the line from
Spence's Bridge to Nicola had been
built on account ot the Dominion
subsidy; on thc coast a line ot 100
miles, from [ Vancouver to' Fort
George, had a subsidy voted, the
evident intention ot the Dominion
government being to connect Victoria with the Grand Trunk Pacific
and open up a vast area rich in
mineral and agricultural wealth, and
$200,000 had been provided tor a
bridge across Burrard Inlet at the
second narrows, giving Vancouver
ejght or ten miles additional harbor
On Vancouver Island the Dominion
had provided a subsidy tor the E. &
S. from Wellington to Alberni, part
of which line was built and the contract let tor Uic balance. A subsidy
was provided for a line from Cowichan Bay to Cowichan Lake, so tlte
whole country tributary to Cowichan
Lake should be opened up. The E.
•V E. had been voted a subsidy tor
70 miles more from French Creek to
Campbell River, and it was only a
matter ot time until a subsidy was
given to bring the line to the north
end ot the Island, From Campbell
River eastward towards the G.T.P.
line a subsidy was available for 100
miles of thc Vancouver Island &
Eastern. Here again the policy of
tlte Dominion government was apparent, to connect this Island with the
G.T.P. There was also 110 miles ot
the Pacific Northern -fc Umincca,
from Kitimat into Telkwa. In all
there were available subsidies lor
some thousand miles ot railway, outside the main line ot the G.T.P.
totalling $6,600,000. This was the
sort ot "better terms" the Prior
government had asked tor in 1003,
but the McHride government nsked
for terms which even their own
friends from Manitoba and Ontario
voted against in the conference. Taking everything into account the Dominion government bad provided,
either hv contract or sudsidies. tor
1,800 miles of railway. Where had
the MeBride government provided tor
a single mile in the same time? Yet
in face ot that the premier had hypnotized the electors into sending to
Ottawa five representatives out of
seven to oppose tlie government which
did all this.
Coming to what the Liberal party
in thc province proposed to do, Mr.
Oliver said they would, if placed in
power, aid the Kootenay Central on
condition ot immediate prosecution
to completion. All subsidies would
be made dependent on the payment to
all workers ot the current rate ot
wages for white labor. The construction ot a lino from Nicola to
Carmi would lie aided on condition ot
construction at once, and the Midway and Vernon people would have
pressure brought to bear on them
to construct. Above all every possible endeavor would be used to get
n link through Hope mountain so as
to bring thc Boundary trade to the
coast. If the V., V. & E. could
satisfy the government that it was
going on, well and good, but that
connection must be made in the immediate future.    In the V., W. & Y.

The extraordinary adventure of a

in Ue Westmoreland district lately.
Itev. .). G. Lax, vicar of South
Slainmore, received a visit one day
from a young lady, who said that on
her wav to the vienrage she had been
followed by a man. Mr. Lax volunteered to see her home, and thev
.-roceedtd to-Tlber in the direction of
the viititur lady's bouse, which lay
about a mile away, the path be.n
tor the most part through fields. As
the lady was stepping over a stile
she was set upon hv two men und

lhe same time five or six other men
attacked Mr. Lax from behind and
endeavored to pin him to the ground.

mau of great strength he kept his
feet for a while, hut was eventually
overpowered, his -assailants being
joined bv others. lt was unite
dark, and Mr. Lax, lying prone upon
ihe mound, fount! himself entirely at
the mercy of his adversaries. The
wuing lady was also detained. The
n-atrg proceeded to bind Mr. I.ax's
bauds and feet wilh thick ropes,
lighteiiin - the cords to such an cx-
tci.t (hat they cut into thc flesh,
causing intense pain. Oue man suggested smashing his head with a
stone, and another threatened to kick

party finally decided to hind him U
a irate and cam* him in the direction of the. vicarage. The pain he
endured became more accentuated as
he was borne aloft on the shoulders
ot his captors, lie was deposited iu
a field adjacent to tho vicarage, and
one of the gang cut tho cords binding
his right band. This served as a signal tor a
general retreat, aud every mau
promptly took to bis heels. So far

from escape on the topmost floor
where thev stood at the windows in a

Keiuurkublt: frauds hy a pawnbroker's manager were investigated ut
Middlesbrough recently. The prisoner
was Henry Stilmun Mitchell, who for
Un nnd a half years hud been manful Mr. Eaton, a local pawnbroker. A bov was sweeping the
shop lloor one dav when be found a
nawn ticket, which he took to his
employer, Mr. Eaton examined it,
mid [mind it was for a parcel purporting to contain a watch und chain
of the value uf £2 in. fid. Mr.
Baton saw that lhe parrel was in its
proper plaee on the shelf, but as no
entry had been made in tlie hooks relating to it lie opened thu parcel.
What was apparent I v a noatlv wrapped, genuine parcel, was really a
"dummy" containing an old washer
and sixteen screws. The prisoner
was out at the time, ami on his return Mr. Eaton showed him lhe oar-
eel and the pawn tlokot, and asked
him what it meant. The prisoner
collapsed, and when he recovered, Mr.
Eat-on, who had put everv confidence
into tlie prisoner, or.dered bim out ot
the place. An examination was then
made, and no less than WI8 similar
"dummy" parcels, representing
£fi"(i Ills, were found to have been
made up and placed on the shelves bv
the prisoner, the frauds covering a
period of about two years. Informa-
alion was given to the police, but the
•irisoiier bv this time bail absconded,
and it was only recentlv he was arrested.
A plucky parlor maid at Netberhy
Hull told her slory in the Cumberland police court a few days ago.
when Joseph -Johnstone was charged
with lieing on the premises for an
unlawful purpose* . Edith Carr and
another servant were awakened from
sleep bv the prisoner entcrta*-* theli
bedroom window. Thc lights were
out, and she shouted, "What do vou
want'.'" Me replied, "Give me vour
coin." She jumped out of bed and
called her fellow-servant to turn the
light on, but tbe latter was too much
afraid to move, and -she crossed the
room und turned the light on herself. Johnstone followed her across
the room, and then sprang to the
door, locked it, and put his back
against it. He told the other maid,
who was sitting up in bed screaniiii'
to "slop her noise," and attain demanded money, adding that he was
desperate. Witness asked him win-
he came there, and he suid he "supposed he must have struck the wrong
end of the house." She gave him
ten minutes to clear out; and evidently afraitl of the household being
aroused, he bolted throturh a window
and down a ladder which had been
placed against it. He was subsequently arrested by the «oIlee.
A remarkable theory of a strange
shouting fatality was put forward at
the inquest of a youth named Arthur
Brewer, whose body was found recently iu a ditch at Avlesheare common, a few miles from Exeter.
Brewer, who was seventeen years of
age, b-ft home with bis gun and was
found dead with bullet wounds in his
body and head. His "tin was broken
and a portion of it was lying across
ihe dead body of a fax by his side.
The medical evidence ut the inuuest
went to support the theory that
Brewer shirt at and wounded the fox.
lie then reloaded and ran after the
animal and struck it with thc butt
end of the gun. This discharged the
contents of the weapon into his own
body. Then, said the medical expert,
lie must have sunk down ami, realizing from the nature of his injuries
that he was doomed, shot himself
through the forehead. There was
no doubt that the wound in his body
was caused first, for one cartridge
could not have inflicted both injuries
The jury returned a verdict to the
efiect that Brewer shot himself to es-
eape the agonv which he was suflerin?
from the accidental wound in his
"The laziest man in the world,"
was the character given to a man
who appeared in Tottenham police
court one dav recently. An Inspector of the National Society for the
Prevention uf Cruelty tu Children applied lor a summons against him for
neglecting bis children. The inspector substantiated the cliarge by the
following grim record: "His wife
tells me that, instead of looking for

hut owing to the stormy weather
thev ran tor Osborne Bay for shelter. Here they encountered a heavy
squall, and the little craft was capsized. Thu three struck out for the

difficulty. After Bwimming for some

during the week was Mr. 11. A. Con-
rov, the Dominion treaty commis-
sioner, who has been traveling there
tor six months past, covering about
loot) miles. This has been an annual
affair with Mr. Conrov for many
vears back. Each time that he
makes the trip the more lirmlv root-
••■i. he states, dots bis belief become
that for 600 miles north of. Edmonton is to be lound one of the finest
agricultural countries in the world.
Air. Conroy's opinion is of unusual
ialue because, unlike most travelers,
he does more than follow the course
of tbe rivers, traveling far inland. He
is particularly impressed with the
possibilities of the Peace river district for dairying.

rhcy're waiting, .Mr. Peary,
They're waning for Iih: shock,
Befoie tbey get too wear*..
Come on and sail the lK>c'
They're --vailing in the alleys,
Thei -"*■ waiting in the lanes;
They ru waiting on the mountains,
They're waiting on tbe plains.
They're waiting up in Denmark,
They're waiting in New York,
rhej r<- wailing up m Norway.
They're waiting, too, in Cork.
They're waiting in the Everglades,
Around the live-oak stumps;
They're waiting on the river flats.
And on the ocean humps.

They're waiting in Japan,
The> re watting In Siberia,
Pern and Hindustan.
They're waiting up In Iceland
Itai ine and Tlmbuetoo;
They're waiting In the  tingles,
They're waiting in the Zoo.
They're waiting here in city streets,
Alii ofi in rural scenes,
They're waiting up in airships,
And down in submarines.
Thev want to ire the hammer,
And what the hardware's like.
Tbey want  to see each rivet,
Thev want to see each spike.
To see Cook nailed they're waiting,
In terrible suspense,
Thev wonder if vrni'll nail the Doc
Against a tree or fence.
Or at the topmost laitnde.
Against the Arctic coal.
With Thor's terrific mallet.
You'll nail him to tlie pole.
Then come, Commander Pear**
We've braced us for the shock:
Come on with sledee and hardware,
Come on, and nail the Doc!
