Sir Wilfrid Laurier lias conic aud

British Columbia witli unbounded on-
tlnisiiisin, and in no part of the
province was liis reception more enthusiastic I halt in tlie Kootunnys.

Important public utterances. The
Herald takes the position that its
leaders would prefer a plain, uiithen-
i if reporl ot his clllcl speech in the
kuittciiiivs, tu a hm); resume or tlto
various incidents connected with his
visit. Accordingly, thoro is reproduced bolow a verbatim reporl nf
the prime minister's great speech at
Nolss n Monday night.
In lhe special edition tif Ihr Hit
old, issued within a lew uilnulcs of
sir Wilfrid's departure from Cranbrook, last Tuesday afternoon, some
scant notice was -oven the reception
of the premier and his colleagues hy
Cranbrook citizens. Some further
reference to this feature, however
brief, must he made.
Cranbrook did nobly, both in the
care mnl attention paid to decorations ami in the splendid turn nut of
citizens, of both sexes and all ages.
It was a proud afternoon for
Cranbrook, when the premier of Canada drove from Die station to the
Bkatlng rink.
Mayor Kink's presentation of the
civic address of welcome was a
specially noteworthy feature of the
occasion. (The address, In full, appears elsewhere In this issue.)
The scene at the skating rink will
long remain a pleasant memory. Never before Unl so vast an audience
gathered together under one roof in
this city, and, probably, never before
had so large an audienee of Kast
Kootenay residents joined together
in hearty unison tn do honor to a
great Canadian citizen.
of the speeches on that occasion
very little mention ean he made. Afler lion. Wm- Templeman and Mr.
Kalph Smith had addressed the audience, Indian Agent tialbraith was
accorded the privilege of presenting
Iwo of liis Indian chiefs to the premier, who, addressing Sir Wilfrid in
French, conveyed lo Mm the sentiments of respect and esteem which
animate the Indian population toward tin* "Oreat white chief."
Francois, chief of the St. Mary's
band of Kootenay Indians, was tbe
spokesman, lie was supported hy
I'ielle, second chief. In the course
of his brief address Francois held in
his hand his stalT of office, which lie
took occasion to Inform Sir Wilfrid,
had been presented to his predecessors by a representative ol Uncrown, many years ago.
In the course of Sir Wilfrid I.anr-
ii-r's address, the prime minister oj
Canada took occasion to pay a very
warm tribute to nne of Cranbrook's
leading citizens, Mr. M. a. Macdonald. At Nelson, the previous evening, Mr. M \ Macdonald, as president of the newly organized Kootss-
naj lloundary Liberal ar social ton.

atmosphere that there was nothing

has I'oiue hack and it has heen possible for myself ami friends tu see
the beautiful mountains which surround this city. 1 have a partiality
for mountains because I come from
a province in which there are somo,
although not at all to he compared
with your own. When British Columbia was first introduced Into Confederation there may he some in this
audience who remember, that some
one in the east in au unlucky moment stated that Hritish Columbia
was a "Sea t>f Mountains." The expression I am sure was not meant
In any offensive way, but nt all
events it carried with it some offensive suggestion. I wish for my
part that if there is any one in the
east who thinks that Hritish Columbia is' a "Sea of Mountains" that it
were possible for him to visit it as
I have done and see what wealth
there is to be found in those mountains, and I could well wish fnr the
sake of the agriculture of the eastern provinces and of the prairie provinces especially lhat they could have
some of those mountains in their
territory. It would he of great as-
sirtancc to their agriculture because
I have seen many and many a time
even this summer, the [armor craning his neck and anxiously scanning
the horizon iu order tn find if possible the specks of cloud which announce the coming of the rain. Hut
here iu British Columbia vou are
not troubled with such anxiety. The
mountains covered with snow and ice
furnish streams which flow down and
relieve ynu from such thoughts and if
the skies are bard and refuse to deliver their water treasure you tap
the streams and secure the water fnr
your crops. Happy British Columbia! I wish we had something of
that kind inthe east-
Hut why I was particularly anxious
to enme to this city of Nelson was
in order, if possible, lo clear up a
question, as to which I will nol sa*.
thai I have a grudge against the
city of Nelson and this lower portion
f the province, but as to which I
think there has been misconception
if the policy of tlie government, l
would like to discuss ami clear up,
if possible, this Oriental question, nl
Which my friend, Mr. Ralph Smith,
has spoken.
In 1896 it was the good fortune ol
the I.literal party to cany this Kootenai district and in fact the whole
southern part ol British Columbia.
The same fm tune in 1900, again in
1904, but in 1908, if I may sa* bo
without offence, in a moment o!
weakness, British Columbia, the
them part, went back on its for
nier record l have uo hesitation in
aving that tins was caused by mis
npn-seli tat ions made, pel haps on
this platform, and certainly through
t Un- length ami breadth of the
province with regard to the policy
n( the Liberal government nu tilth
question of oriental iiumlgrnti n.
Vou nre told that if you wanlcd to
have a "while" British Col itnbia you
should  not   elect  a rep;*. Junta! i *e     lo
support the Laurier government. Vou
Mete told that if it tt.is llie ml-fortune nt the people ol Cauada ihal
tins same government should i-o to*
turned again to* office \ u could say
good b>e to "white" British Colum
iita, that the (irami Trunk Pacific
WOUld he built with Asiatic .labor
and the province run over with Asia-
lie hordes, Now I repeat il to you,
is it imt true that those statements
were made all over British ('oliim-
that I am surprised Ihal such misre-
statemeiits were made, 1 am familiar
with (hose tactics, hut mny 1 sn\
that I am sttrprired that such misrepresentation should have found credence among any intelligent people.
I il nnt say lhat, sir, hy way of reproach, but I huve a right tn say it
iu view of what has followed since.
Time has brought its revenge. Why,
sir, what is the fact today? Two
years have elapsed since ynu heard
these appeals and sir toslay the
(Irand Trunk Pacific railway is being
constructed. Has there been, I ask
the question uud I pause for nu
answer, has there lieen a single Asiatic brought in tn work on the Oram!
Trunk Pacific tail way' Not one.
lias there been any Asiatic hordes to
over run this province? Sir, there
never was a lime iu tlie history of
British Columbia when there have
au lew Asiatics as since      the
last election. Why flo I recall these
tactics? I think, sir, the reason js
obvious, it i.s this: the father Ol lies
is not dead—llie father of Ilea still
lives, and he slill has disciples in
this province. Vou will henr them
again nml therefore - I will caution
um against such false misrepresentations being made again, as they were
made before. May I be permitted
here and now since this question has
such a hold on the people of B. C.
to discuss it before you ami to appeal to the record of what has been
and what is the policy of the Liberal party, which is now in power . ai
Ottawa. Sir, I believe and I never
disguise my thoughts as to this,
1 believe that Asiatic immigration
into a province like II. (', or any
other purl of Canada cannot he allowed to go on unchecked, that it
must he restricted, but I (lifter from
the.       Conservative pari y      as
to the manner of restricting it. The policy suggested by the Conservative patty has
been the harsh method of hostile legislation, the policy we have followed
on the contrary has heen that of
mutual agreement with those Oriental nations which are now arising
frnm the long lethargy of ages and
whose friendship may he useful and
has already, as far as one of them
is concerned, been useful to the
motherland, England, When we took
ollice in 1890 there was an almost
solid representation from the Liberal
party In B. C. 1 was approached
by my friends at lhat time in regard to tbe exclusion of Chinese,
which at that lime was the trouble.
Al that time there was a capitation
lax of $100 and we were asked to
increase ihis to JJUO and we were
also asked to apply the same legislation to .Japanese immigration. As
far as Chinese immigration Is concerned I had no difficulty at all,
speaking on behalf ol the government, in saying to our friends from
British Columbia thai we would at
once  raise  the capitation  tax to
$800. At that time we had no
Chinese consul at Ottawa, wc had
no relations witli them, diplomatic,
semi-diplomatic or commercial—*uo
protest came from China against
that legislation and we had nn hesitation in passing it. As far as Japanese immigration was concerned we
had a Japanese consul at Ottawa and
1 stated that there was then negotia- I
lion going on for a treaty of alliance
offensive and defensive between Japan and Oreat Britain and that such
procedure would not be politic. I
reed, however, that Japanese im-
gration should be restricted and
the same time I said to the
delegates from B. C. that we would
not pass legislation of that kind
Lgnlnst the Japanese. I had several
'onferences wilh the Japanese consul
aud 1 slated that 1 expected from
him that his own government would
themselves restrict the immigration
ol Japanese to ll C. 1 represented
to him that the civilization nf
Japan was *,. different frnm our own,
that their working classes had been
accustomed  lo such a mode of living
in then    f I,     garments,     lodging,
that they could supply iheir wants
for a    mete      fraction of    (he wages
necessary for a white working man
tn live rcspeotablj upon in this
country ami thai if under such conditions tho Japanese workiugmen
were allow ei| io coi iu* in unchecked
numbers there would he a clashing of
interests which would uot be conducive io ihe good relations which he
uml 1 wanted lo have exist between
our countries. Well, sir, I am glad
to sav that those representations
were received with favor. We had an
agreement ai ibat time whereby tbo
Japanese authorities undertook to
restrict Japanese   Immigration  Into
Canada, ami it was restricted. lu
1901, 3-8-1-B-O. Rut all of a sudden
hi 1907, there was an infix of Japanese Immigrants. I dn not accuse
the Japanese government of having
broken faith. It was misconception
of a treaty wc passed, a commercial
treaty in which there was no re-
Btrlcttve condition, hut In regard to
which some thought lhat Japan was
over-riding our agreement. But the
moment this took place I sent my
colleague, Mr. I.emleux, tn Japan,
to represent to the Japanese authorities thai we expected them to observe the agreement made hei ween
our governments and I am hound In
say that our represent al ions were received with favor and with the assistance of the     British ambassador
we renewed the mulct standing
whereby ihe Japanese Immigration
was to he restricted, not hy any act
ol ours, which would be offensive hut
hy the Japanese government themselves. That was in 1007 and from
that date to this that agreement
has been carried out with absolute
honesty and good faith hy the Japanese authorities.   (Applause.)
Now it so happened that al the
same time in 1907 there was anolher
Influx of Asiatic Immigrants, not
from Japan, not from China, Imt
from India. There was an Influx of
Hindus to this country, men of Asiatic race, men against whom all the
economic reasons which unlit ate
against immigration from Japan ami
China would equally apply, hut lliere
was something new at thai lime.
These men were British subjects and
though their color was not the same
as ours, though they were of a different race from ours, they were
fellow subjects wilh us ol Mis Ma-
jeaty, the King nf Kngland. Some
nf them had worn the uniform id
His Majesty ami fought under the
British colors against lhe enemies of Kngland. What were we tn
dsi? Were we lo allow them to
come unchecked in contact with our
own working men? That could nol
he. if we were to follow the
stiggestlnns ol the Conservative party
we were tn have an act ol parliament tn send them away from Canada, hut was it tn he said that in a
British country under a British
King an act should he passed forbidding British subjects to come into the country? Sir, whatever may
have been the opinion of the Conservative party, such was not tbe opinion of the Liberal party. 1 did
otherwise. I sent one nl my own
colleagues, the youngest member of
the government, Mr. \V. L. -Mackenzie
King, a man whom I am glad tn say
is as popular here as wherever he is
known, to India on a diplomatic mission. His mission was confidential
but I may say this, and ynu know
it, that since that date not a Hindu
has come from liisliu tn Canada.
(Applause). I ask ynu now, sir,
wliich is the better method? That sif
hostile legislation, which has heen
proposed again and again in Ihis
province by the Conservative party,
't tbe policy of conciliation, of mutual agreement, wliich has been followed by the present government. To
compare the merits ofthe two policies, we have uu act whereby we
exclude Chinese immigrants, whereby
Chinamen can come into this
country unless he pays a capitation
lax of SatHI and last rear 1100 came
in and paid the lax. We have an
agreement with Japan whereby none
can come in beyond lhe number of
1UU in every year. Which of the
two acts is the more reasonable
ami the more productive of the good
results fnr which we all hope? But
ynu will ask me why should ' we he
more conciliatnry to Japan than to
China? Sir, for ihis reason, I do
not know what tho Chinese government may dn in the future, but I
know what the Japanese government
has done in the past. Japan is nn
longer a barbarian nation. Japan
has entered intn ihe category of civilized nations. It has now awakened
ami if in the art*, ol peace it has
not yet fully attained ihe standard
f Kuropeaii nations, III the art of
war It was able to cope wilh oue of
the most powerful nations of Kurnpc
and to cope successfully. lias that
any significance for US'* Vou know
that the interests ol Kngland in lhe
Pacific ocean are paramount, you
know that in India, Australia, Sew
Zealand, in different parts ol the
Pacific wean, sin- has Interests
which call for the exercise or all her
energy and watchfulness, It is to
lhe credit nf old Kngland thai she
was the first of the nations of Europe to realize tho awakening which
has taken place in Japan and iu
1.103 Lord Lansdowne, al that time
Secretary nf Stale for foreign affairs, thought it best lo enter into
a treaty of alliance, offensive and
defensive between Oreat Britain and
■Japan, whereby Kngland has gainesl
au enormous amount of prestige and
power. All students ol the recent
history of Oreat Britain, those who
have followed her history since the
accessinn of Queen Victoria, know
that there has been a thorn in the
side of Kngland in lhe power of
Russia on the frontier of India
Kveryone knows lhat whether it was
under Lord Palmerstnii nr Lord Ber
hy or Gladstone or Disraeli, every
man who had anything to do with
spies! ions n| eastern relations ill
Oreat Britain never went lo l.cd al

perhaps in the morning he would
know that a Russian army was lieing
mobilized nu lhe frontier of India.
But from the day nf the treaty between Kngland ami Japan, from the
day especially that Kield Marshal
(Kama drove the Russian army frou
Port Arthur, from the time Togs
sank the Russian Heel in the waters
of the Sea of Japan, from that date
the frontier ■>( India has heen absolutely secure from Russian aggression. Sir, shies nnt this condition of
things appeal to the Conservatives
who may Im- prescnl hero? Is there
any Conservative prescnl here. I
see that lliere are a few, not many
Now ynu will ask me Imw do I know
lhat there are it few. I am a prettj
olsl bird in these matters and I can
see hy looking into a man's eye
Whether he is (irit or Tory, .unl

condition of things appeal lo them
Under these circumstances, when it
is possible that if there was a war
between Kngland anil some foreign
nation the Japanese and Hritish
fleets might light sisle by side, is il
not better that we should ireat this
new nation with consideration and
respect rather than try lo trample
sin Iheir pride and self esteem
(Applause). Now, sir, that is the
position we have taken, aud in the
face sif the result, thut we have effectually cheeked the Japanese immigration, I think I may claim
that at the next election if there
should lie a man who comes belore
ynu and tells you that you are
threatened with being overrun with
Asiatic immigration ynu will know
what answer tn give him. There-
lore, I hope I shall lie pardoned if
I say that in my humble opinion the
pniple of southern B- C. did not consult their best interests when they
scut my friend Mr. Qoodcve tn parliament last session. I have nothing
to say against Mr. Qoodcve. lie is
a respectable gentleman, he is a
friend of mine, hut he has one capital fault which should be a bar tn
the confidence of the people ol Kootenay. lie is a Tory. That is all
the reproach I have tn make, but it
is a very serintis reproach. May I
!«■ pardoned if I go one step farther
and say lhat in other respects the
people nf this section of B. c. did
t consult their best interests. Why,
how old is this city? Ten. fifteen
years at m it. This town owes its
existence largely and its prosperity
certainty, to the policy of the government, which by the grace of Ood
and lhe will of the Canadian |K*oplo
has heen at the head id af-fallS for
the last fourteen years at Ottawa
How BO? Well, sir, three things
have characterized the policy nf this
government. Transportation, immigration arid their fiscal policy. In
all these things I claim that the
policy of the government has targe!)
contributed, not only io ilu* existence hut slill more to the prosperity
of this city and all the cities of lhe
Kootenny valley. In 1807, M -■••'
as wc had come Into office, wo undertook io complete the Crows Sell
railwav Now I ask you fellow
count ry men.  I  ask  you ciii/cns     nl
Nelson,  what  would  Nelson  be    todSj
but for the building ol that railway!1 Sir, what lias made thli
city and all the Oltlcs along thai
railway is the development of the
mineral wealth which has been tapped by lhat line und which could
not have been utilized hut for ih.it
railway The coal measures along
that line would hr loday where they
were fifteen years ago, slill in the
bowels sif the earth, hut for thai
railway, 'lhe other industries that
depend upon it, the production of
gold to a large extent, of silver and
copper and lead, to a still greater
extent, it is tlie construction nf the
Crows Nest railway which has given
the impetus, which has brought lhe
great increase of population here
lhat is now building these cities
wliich are becoming more and more
prosperous. Nnt only that hut we
also undertook to innslrnct a new
transcontinental railway. Sit. I
know this railway is very far away
from you. It may not appeal directly to you, but, sir, I know there is
ennugh patriotism In this patt of
southern B.    C. tu know (hut     al
though you mav imt he benefited directly by lhat railway. Indirect!) it
Is one ol the greal assets ol B C.
al tlie present lime Nnt only that,
it  is also one ol lhe great es*l  awets
of    Canada as    a  whole.       Sir.   that
railway has been comitates! In everj
possible form ever since II was proposed in parliament, by the Conser
vutivc party. It was not over-popular In the tanks nf the Liberal
part). I had a ministerial crisis
over it. and one of my colleagues,
Mr. Hlair. resigned over it, bill I
say now I think events have shown
that lhat railway did not come a
day too soon and if there is any*
thing thai will make ll. c more
prosperous even than it is at the
present time, it is the opening ol
thnt railway.   Therefore,  I say that
the   pollC)*   we  have   followed       IS      a
policy which oughl to be endorsed
and I am sure will he endorsed by
Hie people in this part of British
Then another feature ol our policy
is jn regard to immigration. I told
>ou lhat up to the year 1890 Canadi
made scarcely any progress, we did
nol even keep our own population,
II, c. was stagnant, making no progress at all, the same is true ol the
prairie provinces aad it ev- n applied to the eastern provinces, tin-
latin and Quebec, and it is true that
during the forty years preceding
1800 wc did not succeed in kecptna
the natural Increase ol o r population, but they went nver by the
thousands, nay, tbe hundred thousands, into    tlie I nited States, hut
now", sir, we have ti.:." : *i "*» '■ -
It is not the Canadians today who
are going into tlie -United States,
it is the Americans who are coming
into Canada. Sir. iti those *<M day*.
we were overshadowed by the ;"■■•'
Republic to the south. The Luted
states were launched at the time ol
lhe war nf independence into tbe
world under a halo of glory and f"r
one hundred years they were tlie
magnets thai drew every man ut
energy and enterprise fn the world.
Any man anywhere in the world w:th
brains, activity, energy, who Mt
himself cramped in his native land
took his ticket and went to tl
United states. But those da>s are
passed and the United States \* r -
placed by Canada. It is Canada today which is attracting the ea/e ol
the peoples of the world. Thf
praities have Iw-en filled so that today there is probably hctww-T* Lake
Superior and the Rocky Mountains
a population of nearly a million
souls. Now. sir. la it not true that
you people in the southern part ol
B. C. have a most valuable trade
with this new population In the
prairies? The) supply the market
for your products and furnish tbe
food products thai you require and
therefore bring about the prosperity
you now enjoy.
A third cause ol yooi prosperity
and of the prosperity ol the country
is uur fiscal policy. The fiscal question is nol an easj problem. I have
visited these provincei tbal I have
just named. When I was m the
prairie provinces I met a population
ol producers ol natural products and
thej were anxious for freedom ol
trade As toon ai I landed a' Vancouver I received an address Horn
tin- mayor and  board of trade it.
which the) asked lot protection
Thej asked free irade .it dm bi I,
protection ui the other I said very
well, gentlemen, 1 will refer your
petition and the petition ol the
prairies lo mj Irtend,    Mi   Fielding
and   I   hope he will Ik* able to     Ir.r.v
from them, as he did before, a tarifl
suitable to everyone. There is an "i'i
saying thai the prool ol ibe pudding
is the eating, and    1 am sure    lha*
even my   Conservative    friends who
are present will he fair enough to
admit that WC have put on the table
for Ihem and [nr all the people ol
Canada, a pudding which has b-ren
fruitful nnd which has given us the
besl food we have had since Confederation There is HO doubt OUI
tarifl has been the best tariff ever
devised hut this tariff is not pertei t,
I will not go over the ground covered a moment ago by Mr. Pardee,
hut let nu- call your attention to
this, that the Cardinal feature nf tin-
tariff adopted In I'tOT was the British preference. On ihe Mnl of April,
1007, we determined to give to the
products of Great Britain a preference of I3| per cent, which vvas in
creased two veats allerwatds In J.*>
pel    cent uud    siibM'l>ilciilty  inert'*.**-'1
to 33 1-3 per cent. Now this has
been a regulation of prices of all
goods introduced Into Canada which
had to pay duly even though they
came from (iermany, the United
States or any other portion of the
earth, for iu order that they mlgbl
come into circulation and be used
by consumers iheir prfceB bad lo be
brought down to the prit?es ol tbe
British article. It lias been a regulator nf profits* Let me say also that
it is a cardinal and standing feature
of the Canadian tarifl and as long
as we are in office ll shall rei lain
there, it was not adopted withoui
much efforl and thought We had a
mosl determined opposition from
ih- Majesty's opposition ol the Conservative part • Thej opposed it f"i

As an orator be stood certainly in
the very front rank of orators of his
counlry or any country, of his age or
any age. When Louis Plane was in
Kngland, in ihe davs of the Second
Kinpire, he used to write to the
press of Paris, anil iu sme of his
letters to Lo Temps, he stated that
Mr. Gladstone would undoubtedly
have been the foremost orators of
Kngland if it were not tor the existence of Mr. Bright. It was admitted Ihal on some occasions Mr.
Krighl reached heights of gramlcur
and pathos which even Mr. Gladstone
did not attain. Hut Mr. (Hailstone
had an ability, a vigor, a fluency
which no man in his age or any age
ever 11vailed or even approached.
That vvas mil all. To his marvellous mental powers he added no less
marvellous physical gifts. He had
ihe eye of a god, the voice of a sil-
ver bell; and Ihe very fire of his
eye, the very music of his voice
swept the hearts of men even before
they had been du/./Icd by the tor-
ccnts nf his eloquence. He enforced
the extension of the suflruge to tbe
masses of the nation, ami practically
therebv made the government of

as thai of anv republic. He disestablished tho Irish church; he Introduced reform into lhe laud tenure,

one of ihe greal characters of
; lory, ami her death had caused more
or poor, the Queen, in her long
reign had become an object of al
most sacred veneration. There was
sincere and unaffected regref in all
the nations of Kurope, for all th
nations of Europe had learned to appreciate, tn admire and to envy the
many qualities of Queen Victoria,
and esteem those many public anil
domestic virtues which were the
pride of her subjects. There vvas
genuine grief in the neighboring nation of seventy-live million inhabitants*, the kinsmen of her own people.
by whom, al all times and under all
circumstances, her name was held in
high reverence, and where, in the
darkest slays ol the civil war, when
the relations of the two countries
were strained, almost to the point
of snapping, the poet Whittier had
well expressed the feeling of his
countrymen when he exclaimed:
We bowed the heart, if not the knee,
To England's Queen, God bless her.
There was wailing and lamentation
amongst the savage and barbarian
penples of her vast empire, in the
wigwams of our own Indian tribes,
in the huts of the colored races of
Africa and of India, to whom she
was at all times the great mother,
lhe living Impersonation of majesty
and benevolence. Aye, and there
was mourning also, genuine and unaffected, in the farm houses of South
Africa, still devastated hy war, fnr
it was a fact that above (he clang
of arms, above the many angers engendered hy the war, the name of
Queen Victoria was always held iu
high respect, even hy those who
were lighting lier troops, as a symbol of justice, und perhaps her kind
hand was much relied upon when
the supreme hour of conciliation
should come.
lie glanced at the advance of culture, of wealth, of legislation, of
education, ol literature, of the arts
and sciences, of locomotion hy land
and by sea, and of almost every department of human activity during
the Queen's reign. To the eternal
glory of the English literature of
her time it could Ik- said that it was

grossness which disgraced it in other
ages, aud which slill unhappily was

under Mackenzie and under Blake
with /cal and good faith, unbroken
by any fitful detachment or querulous
repining over persistent ill-fortune,
and if his will could have prevailed

Amid all the clamor of the general
election of 1801, the Montreal Witness said: "Mr. Laurier spent a
1'iiict day, and though much weaiicd
by his previous exertions, was biiphl
and pleasant to every one. What a
relief to talk with a man so different
from the hand-shaking, story-telling,
cajoling politician! Mr. Laurier's
charm of conversation and pun!)
ol character win him friends even
fmm pnliticul opponents of the
fiercest stripe. He is lighting bis
political battle like a man every Inch,
iml making headway wla-rcvci dec
tors take men lust—politics alter
wards." The Montreal correspond
cut of lhe Toronto Mail used very
similar language. He wrote: "It is
remarkable fuel Hint amidst all
the excitement ol the campaign, Mr.
.aurier, the Liberal leader, pursues
lbs* even tenor of his way. Nol
since Ibe opening of Ihe campaign
has he ul teres! a harsh worst againsl
his opponents. He has tleatt witb
the issue on its merits, and to all
lhe cries that have heen raised he
has made a dignified reply, liven his
bitterest opponents admit that he is
hi'lit im; the campaign like a man,
ami that his conduct is in remarkable contrast lo thnt ot Rome of
the leading public men who are now
parading the country.'1
It ts perhaps as an orator that
Mr. Lnurier is pre-eminently distinguished. Ills speeches have much
of the beauty nud simplicity ol
Lincoln'r addresses and Slate palters, witli more ol imaginative quality and oratorical intensity. He   iv
more diffusive than Bright, but far
less BO than Gladstone. He lacks
Gladstone's energy and is doubtless
less ready to invite combat, less
oager iu his impulses, less restless in
his environment. But once
he       has       made      his deci
sion ho is hold, resolute,
his decision he is hold, resolute,
wary, and sagacious in the pursuit of
his end. He has an infinite patience
tinder attack nnd a thorough contempt for the mere tattle of partisan
controversy. Ho seldom corrects
the smaller misrepresentations of
his objects and motives, and much
thai Is said hy a hostile press he
wholly sets aside as of no practical
account in the serious discussion of
public questions. Few men nre more
apt in quotation nr mure skilful in
citing historical and cnustilutioii.il
precedents calculated to (ouch the
fooling and excite the sympathies of
the audience lis- addresses, This
comes of ins deep rending and profound knowledge nf Canadian ami
British history. There is more of
lhe history of Canada in Sit Wilfrid Laurier's speeches than iu those
of nn) other public man of his generation, and his remarkable historical
equipment lends steadiness and subnet v to bis career and saves him
from rash identification with ephc
moral agflatlons and hasty acceptance ol social and economic theories
which have cheated and betrayed iu
other times ami other countries, Ile
has neither the fervour nf the revolutionary nor the /cal nf the radical.
His whole career is that sif a moderate Liberal, in the main conservative
in its tendencies, and individualistic
in its spirit.
His English is that ol the essayists
and constitutionalists rather than
that of the traders and economists.
His Kuglish is, in fact, tint at all
so clear and definite when he discusses questions of trade and liuance as
when lis- handles constitutional systems ami the principles of government. In French he is as clear and
lunlnoiis upon the nne set of questions as upon the other. lie does
himself injustice when he discredits
bis knowledge of business. While he
belongs to the school nf constitutional statesmen whose chief work
for many years was to evolve the
constitutional structure of Canada
from the loose provisions of the
Act of Union, he is still hardly the
inferior of nny sif his contemporaries
in the economic school which modern
industrial conditions have created.
Hiv administration is distinguished
fnr progressive social legislation, fnr
sympathetic recognition ol the changing relationships between labor and
capital, and for intelligent comprehension of the new responsibilities
imposed upon governments by the
capitalistic organization of modern
Industry. His. however, is essentially the Kngllsh ol the orator, and
that is not the Kngllsh of the economists. Hence, his presentation ol
commercial anil financial questions is
not always equal to his understand*
iiir* of these subjects. In the same
English of the essayists, and he
sense the late, Mr. (ioldwin Smith writes the
stales the principles of the economists more successfully than he employs their language in handling ihe
recognized nomenclature of trade
an.l finance. It must always be remembered ihal in parliament and
upon the platform outside of (Quebec,
Sir Wilfrid Lnurier generally finds it
necessary lo speak an acquires! language, and not withstanding his
superb mastery of Knglish speech,
still labors-under some disadvantages
Irom which those who speak Knglish
as their mother tongue are exempt.

Sir Wilfrid
Re=Christens Queen City of
Sir Wilfrid Laurier's first trip to
Hie Kouleuays win surely long endure ns n pleasant memory. The cily
of Nelson certainly spares! nu pains
hi give him a truly loyal welcome.
Probably in no portion ot Western
Canada did lie receive a more enthusiastic reception than in the
Queen Oity or the Kootenays, The
train bringing him and his party lu
in town from West Robson was ovor
nn hour late, but, notwithstanding,
practically the whole city and several
hundred visitors from outside  points
ire on hiinil lo welcome him.
\ deputation of some two score
prominent citizens and visitors from
surrounding points, Including several
Cmiibroot. citizens, went down as far
as Slocan Junction to meet his
1 rain. At that, point they hoarded
llic train, about 11 p.m., and rode
into tliv cily with tlie premier and
his party. AI the station there
were gathered a vast number of
people, including many ladles and
children. The station war brilliantly lighted up, decorated] and made
noisy liy tho explosion of fireworks.
Sir Wilfrid was met at the station
by Mayor Sclous, Kred Starkey,
president of the board ol trade, and
W. C. Wells, the newly elected honorary president of the Kootenay-
Roundary Liberal association, who
escorted him to his carriage, amid
tin! vociferous cheers of the assembled thousands.
Immediately the other visitors had
been seated, the procession started
up town, headed by Major Lome
Slewart, as marshal I, and the city
band. On eilher side of (he premier's carriage walked young men
bearing torches. Fireworks were
set off all along the crowded line of
route, up Baker street and thence
along Ward, Silica and Hendryx
streets, to the residence of L. H. I)c-
Yeber, manager of the Bank of Montreal, where Sir Wilfrid spent the
night. The crowds on the street
were certainly tlto largest Nelson has
ever seen and by long odds the most
The decorations of the streets, the
public buildings ami places of business, in addition tu many of the
private residences, along the route
traversed by lhe premier's part)',
were simply superb. Nelson had
iaul herself out tu do her hesl and
she certainly scored a new high record for public spirited display.
Clear from the station to the De-
\eber residence the great crown followed the premier's carriage, cheering and flting off fireworks and iu
every other conceivable manner making known their delight at having
him in their midst. This great
crowd was out and in an enthusiastic
mood, despite the fact that the train
was an hour late and that they had
been on tbe Btreets and sidewalks, in
a cold, damp breeze, for several
Upon his arrival at Mr. DeVeber's
residence Sir Wilfrid took occasion to
express his warm appreciation of the
splendid welcome tendered him, a
urolcome such as had not been excelled at any point on his trip. As
Indicating how strongly the premier
had been Impressed, In conversation
wilh a Nelson gentleman, Sir Wilfrid
asked what was the population       of
the city.
"About seven thousand," was the
Sir Wilfrid expressed surprise, saying 1 should have thoughl seventy-
seven thousand would have been near-
1 r the mark."
The other ministers were equally
cordially welcomed and comfortably
entertained at the. Hume hotel, where
also the visiting press men were
provided with quarters., Very
thoughtfully the committee in charge
ol arrangements left sir Wilfrid en*
lut'Iy lo himself on Sunday. No
callers were allowed and the entire
day was given over to him, in wliich
to rest, As a matter of fact the
premier spent the day very quietly.
only leaving the house to attend
mass at (he church of Mary Immaculate, Rev. Kather Atthoff, priest.
I ot tbe other meiubers of tlie party,
im lulling the visiting pres.siueii, and
iiu- delegates to the Liberal convention on Saturday, a motor boat excursion ■ " Busk's ranch was arranged and proved avoiy enjoyable outing. The trip up and down tbe lake
was a delightful one, and nt Bulk's
ranch au excellent open air luncheon
had been provided by Mr. W. 0,
Wells, lo which ample justice was
done alter (he run slown the lake.
On this excursion the deli-gates frnm
the Portland Chamber ot Commerce
were Interested guests.
Afler a quiet, restful Sunday, Sir
Wilfrid Laurier nnd his party put In
a very strenuous Msmday. First
thing in the morning, Sir Wilfrid attended at the court bouse, where he
was met by a deputation, comprising
delegates of the Portland aud Spokane eliamtit'is of commerce, of the
Nelson boarsl of trade uud ineinliets
of several neighboring hoards. The
sihject of this deputation was to lay
before the premier the scheme nf
making the Columbia river navigable
from West Ksibiou to I'm thud, Ore
gon. Air. Karris was spokesman 'or
the Nelson hoard of trade. 1 le
briefly set forth certain facts wilh
regard tn the river and went on to
enlarge upon the benefit thai would
accrue to the Kootcnays by Hi
opening up of the river to navigation in reduced freight rales. Senator Chamberlain, of Portland, Ore,
presented the case from tho Am Ti
can view point, In reply Sir Wll-
.frid expressed his hearty personal interest in the project and promised
that he would confer with thr minister Of public win I,b, with .1 view
lo the early sur\i-y ol the rlvei Irom
Windermere to Wesl Robson.
Later iu the morning Sir Wilfrid
was walled upon hy tho deputation
appointed bj the Liberal con vent Inn
to lay certain resolutions before him,
The deputation was very cordial I j
received by Sir Wilfrid, Hon. tl. |*.
(iraham and other members ot his
party. The various resolutions were
briefly explained by M. A* Macdonald
and discussed by Sir Wilfrid.
In the afternoon a grand open .ur
meeting was held at tho cltj pari,,
sir Wilfrid was conveyed to the
scene iu a launch, escorted by upwards of one hundred oilier watel
craft. The scene was a delightful
one, the lovely lake, literally covered willi craft of every description,
and ttie sun shining brightly over
head. Arrived at the park, a civic
welcome .was extended the premlei
liy Mayor Scions and on behalf nl
the Kootcnay-Boundary people bj
Martin Burrcll, M.P., for Yale-Carl
boo. Sir Wilfrid's response was
in his best vein. He very happily
referred to Nelson as the Venice ol
Canada and said that if his public
career were terminated in the near
future he would like to make the
Kootenays his home ami in lhat
event he could think of uu ulcer
place in which tn end his days
than Nelson. At the close 0! (hi
addresses, the premier was called
upon to present the governor general's medal to a Nelsnii high school
girl, Miss Patrick, whoso granslfatli-
er was mice an old political friend
of Sir Wilfrid's. This pleasing llicl
dent over, a return was mode lo the

Twelve years ago, sir, thore was no city of Cranbrook, Indeed, It Is only
five years since tho oltv was Incorporated, Today wo have a thriving community, possessing municipal ami educational liisllliitlors ami business

respectfully urge on your government the speedy erection of Iho building, (o
meet the Immediate needs of the community.
We congratulate you, sir. irrespective of party, on the grent work lo which

Kootenay - Boundary Liberals
At a largely attended and very en-i
timsiastic gathering uf Liberals, re*
lnTss'iitativs.- of the Kootenay nml
Mmiiislary electoral districts, Ik-Is! in
the city nf Nelson on Saturday last,
a distiis.-t Liberal organization was
formed, with a view to the care
uf Liberal Interests ami tho promotion of Liberal principles throughout
the districts represented. The convention was a most businesslike affair. There was no time wasted
over spccchmaklng ur the consideration s>t Irrelevant Issues. Business
tirsi, last ami alt the time characterized the meeting ami hy <> p.m* an
adjournment wus taken, all business
work having been accomplished.
The convention was called to order
ni ii a.m. by Mr. Kd- Ferguson, pro-
sitit'tiL ut the Nolson Liberal association. After briefly announcing the
objects ol the convention, the chairman appoints?*] a credential committee, who Immediately retired ami
within a few minutes presented their
report. The report showed n very
representative attendance ol delegates, Kast Kootenay lieing particularly well represent ed,
Immediately tho credentials1 committee's reporl had been adopted,
Mr. .Iiiiui Keen, of Kasln, was unanimously appointed permanent
chairman, and Mr. II. K. Douglas, of
Nelson, secretary.
The next motion was that the delegates proceed t-> organize a district
Liberal association. This motion
passcil withoui debate and the meeting nl once proceeded in select the
name ami draft a constitution ami
bylaws. The preparation ol a constitution and bylaws had already received the consideration of a representative committee ami this business really occupied very little time.
Tbe next order ol business was the
election ol officers sif the new organization. The result being ns follows:
linn. I'resident-W. <". Wells, Nelson.
President—AL A. Macdonald. Cranbrook.
1st    Vice-President—Krt. Ferguson,
2nd Vice-President-- !■.. S. ll.
\\yuu,  Kosslnnd.
Secretary—\V. H. Karris, Nelson.
Treasurer—Lester Patrick, Nelson.
The executive committee will consist of the foregoing officers-, the presidents lor tlie time being of every
local Liberal association within the
district and two delegates at large
Irom each electoral ilistrict, appointed by the Liberals ol the respective
The lirst resolution disposed of
read as follows:
"He it resolved that this convention extend the heartiest felicitations to Mir Wilfrid Laurier un the
occasion ot his visit tu the Hunts-nays and tie it further resolved
that this convention hereby express
iis confidence in Sir Wilfrid Laurier
ami his government."
A resolution dealing with the Improvements to navigation on the
Columbia river came up next and alter some discussion this was referred
to tlie respective Liberal associations
throughout the district for an expres-
iiou nf their views on the subject. A
long series of nidations was then
disposed of, anion-*; them heing the
"Ite it resolved that the Dominion
government !«• urged to instal an ellicient long distance telephsme system
throughout the Kootenay districts,
which are at present without telephone communication.''
■ 'lhat the Dominion government
be asked to institute a better mail
service between ti olden and Cranlirook, of at least three mails per
week, each way, and that said mail
Contract !«• Open lo tender. Those
tendering to be compelled to give
bettot stage arciitiimosUtloii to the
travelling public."
"Iteiolved. thai ll is of the 'it-
most Importance to have the Kootenay Central railway completed nt
Ilu-     failiest    possible moment,   the
mMMiction of tbe said road having
bun delayed so long
tb.it inteiidiiiK settlers    and
nveslors are losing faith in
tiers and Investors are losing faith in
its ever being completed, thereby
preventing said settlers und investors
from settling in the valley and we
ask that tlie matter be brought before tlie Hon. Minister ol Hallways,
ami pray tbat action be taken tn
Compel the C.P.R, to complete said
road at since according to their
■'Resolved, that the Dominion government he asked to erect a post
otlice building in the town of Golden
to bo used jointly nt post ollice, customs and land office, the present ollice licing situated in a general store
ami the delivery ot both registered
and other mail matter Is most inconvenient nnd unsatisfactory."
"Resolved, that the Dominion government he asked to build a wharf
nn the Columbia river at (Inlden.
The present one is owned hy a private concern and is both dangerous to
life nnd most inconvenient. A new
Wharf at the old landing can lie
limit at small cost and would be a
groat boon tn tlie country and would
increase the   value of the l-Mimtnion
government property adjoining     the
proposed wharf."
"Whereas, the interests of Hritish
Columbia, and a lar^c portion of
Western Canada, are suffering from
tbe fact that the present tariff permits this counlry to tic made a
dumping ground for the lower grades
of lumber, and
Whereas, it is a well known fact
that the said lower grades are sold
from time lo time at less than the
cost of production, owing to American manufacturers finding a home
market for their higher grades at
prices enabling them to sacrifice tint
common lumber iu Canada, regardless of cost anil greatly to the detriment ot Canadian interests;
Whereas, the welfare of the province of II. C. is to a large degree dependent upon Ibe prosperity of the
lumber industry and whereas the inter-provincial Interests of Hritish Columbia ami the prairie provinces is
also a matter of great Importance,
when it is remembered thut H. C.
draws most of her supplies of hay,
oats, cattle, eggs, ilour und other
agricultural products from Alberta,
Saskatchewan and Manitoba;
Whereas, ibis convention dties not
believe lhat it is iu the contemplation of the government that any
Canadian industry should he made to
suffer through having its home market, which, iu the case of lumber, is
practically the only market, made
the dumping ground for the product
nf foreign competitors; and,
Whereas, the c. S. maintains a
duty on common as well as on all
other grades of lumber; and
Whereas, under the present Canadian tariff a duty of 25 per cent
is imposed upon the high grades of
lumber, and the lower grades are admitted free;
It is therefore resolved, that in
the opinion ot this convention the
tariff in respect to lumber should be
revised, by more equable application
to all grades of lumber."
"Whereas, in the City of Cranbrook, we have at present three passenger trains daily, passing through
east and west, only one of which
provides a mall service at the present time;
And whereas, increased and better
mail facilities might easily be given
by providing for at least a double
daily mail service each way;
Aud whereas, the matter has already been drawn to the attention of
the Postmaster General by the Associated Hoards of Trade ol Kast
He it therefore resolved, tbat this
association, assembled this 27th day
uf August, PHI), urge upon the
Postmaster-General to instruct the
district inspector at Calgary to look
into and report on the feasibility of
providing such increased service and
that the necessary steps be taken to
inaugurate It."
"Whereas, the valleys ol the Kootenay and Columbia rivers in Kast
Kootenay, commonly known as the
Windermere district, is being rapidly
developed and it is essential that
better mail facilities be provitfcd to
meet the wants ot the many settlers
therein, and to enable them to transact their business with reasonable
Therefore lie it resolved, that this
association assembled this 27th day
of August, PUU, at Nelson, H C ,
urge upon the government lit* necessity lor providing a three times-a-
week mail service throughout the
ilistrict between Golden and the City
i>( Cranbrook."
Some other resolutions ot purely
parly interest were discussed and
disposed of.
Votes of thanks to tbe presiding
officer, the secretary, the Nelson
Liberal association (or their generous hospitality and similar customary motions having been disposed of,
a motion was adopted appointing
President M. A. Macdonald, Secretary Karris, Mr. Green, of Golden,
Mr K .1. Deane, of Cranhrook, and
the Hon. President, W. 0. Welts, a
committee to lay the above resolutions before Sir Wilfrid Laurier and
his colleagues whenever u Convenient
opportunity offered.
This was the closing work nf the
convention, which closed with enthusiastic cheers fnr Premier Laurier and the singing of tlie national
Tbe cnnventlon was one of the
most businesslike ever conducted in
the province. Every person present applied himself to the work in
hand with a determination to effect
the Ih-sI possible result without any
undue delay. There was a remarkably representative attendance from
Kast Kootenay, delegates being present from Fernie, Cranbrook, Marysville, Moyie, Athalnier and Golden.
Every delegate in attendance expressed pleasure at the prompt
efficient manner in which the work
was conducted, a result very largely
due to that prince of chairmen, .lohn
Keen, of Kaslo.

Night sweats are a sure sign of
nervous exhaustion. They weaken the body and depress the mind.

Irish Canadian
Stiiiiottiiors' about twenty-five years

three people who have ilnce become
Known clear across the continent

very often wtwn neither was very

reciprocated lhu courtesy in addressing the bishop, but it's very likely
the other two suid "Jim" nml
"George" a gsioil deal. If Sir
•lames hnd been like a certain other
Statesman, he would have said when
they parted, "When shall we three
meet again?" Hut It's quite likely

down over hli eyes, and, with a big,
good humored ■ laugh, sold. "Well,

Immediate personal illstlnction: the
premier, the minister of the interior,
anil the minister nf railways. To be
candid, Mr. Graham looks like the
most leisurely man in the bouse—a
largo-sized sort, witb good-nature
beaming over his Irish (ace. He
usually aftccls a red Ho, uml often n
boutonnlcre quite us red. Ho drifts
loosely, yet very qulokly, Into the
House, bows jerkily lo tbo
speaker, nml swings into his sent

tilts it Jauntily over one eye. Likely
as uot some member of tho opposition—-probably Mr. Foster—is In the
act sif jibing tbo minister of railways
nt that very moment; for tho autocrat of the transportation department occasionally comes iu lor a
round of bombardment from lhe opposition guns. Tbo hon. member
raises Ills voles1 when he BC08 the
minister, bcenmes siminful. inul quite
vindictive. Mc (iraham leans over,
picks up a tile of evening papers,
meanwhile bestowing a mosl bcnevol-
: nf attention upon his critic
Then if his departmental estimates
arc before the house, he polats them
over tho rocks of opposition criticism
by sheer good-nature and skill in
handling men,
That perennial air of bonhomie ami
it is the despair ol the
(line ami the <ominilruiii of the opposition. George P. (iraham knows
hofl to ust iu the house, ami how
to listen at the same tune. He has
ferreted oul the easy way of doing
.1 vest amount ol work In his office
ami   in   rahinet   COUnCll.       Hul let

In the occasion, and when be does he
has a battery of guns trained on the
member and he hangs ihem siff with
such imperturbable authority that he
h able to convert ihe raipleit nag-
gerfesl <>f a debate Into a real contribution to the gayely of nations.
i'i rhaps he was born that wny. Mv
must have been a   despair to      his
sel I teachers;   ami quite as likely
.1 very good member ol Stalky ,v Co.
io Lis classmates. Hut with whatever dower ho was born—and he has
cause io he thankful (or most of It-
Mr. (iraham has learned Irom a discursive experience the art sif getting
on in (he world iu the particular
part of the world's work that tris'S
most the temper of the uverage and
th.' unhumorous man. George P.
was never horn to he a mere plug
hoi *c in polities, but, with the temperament of a hlood horse, lie has
done a deal of plugging fn bis time.
To begin with, he lias heen most of
liis life a journalist. Therefore lie has
never known What it vvas to heap
up riches not knowing who should
gather them. He began his newspaper career on The Morrishurg Herald, in thi1 pari of Ontario so absorbingly represented by sir James
Whitney, against whom lie has tilted
in politics. Vears ago be went lirst
lo Ottawa ami worked un the Free
Press, lie slid the parliament buildings and the House of Coinmsins do-
bates for that paper when lis: was
the lankiest reporter that ever saw
Parliament Hill. In the course of
lime .Mr. (iraham drifted back      to
the more reposeful haunts of the
town of Brockvflle, where, until he
entered the Dominion cabinet, he was
managing director of The Recorder
At the present time one of his two
sons runs the paper lhat gave Mr.
(iraham his real clnclt-hold on tin*
local electorate and mush of his grip
on things in general in tho province
of Ontario
He put iu full time on the plain
duties (.f eitlzenahtp; heing a member
of the county Council and warden of
the county; a perfect authority nn
roads and drains ami taxes, as good
a type of municipal pater as could
he found iu Canada—foi it Is certain
that, whatever problem, bow ever
primeval, .Mr. (iraham tackled iu sir-
der to solve, he gut as mush out of
it for the good of tin- people and in
the name o[ supreme common sense
as it was possible for any man to
get.     When he left county politics to
go into the Ontario legislature in
1898, which is only twelve years old,
there were some good people down in
Itrockrille who said thev told him so,
and some others who Imagined thut
he reached bis reasonable limit when
hi' managed a county.
Hut in the larger field Mr. (iraham
was not long proving what a brainy,
hearty Irishman could do who bad
spent forty yenrs iu a county. Little
more than a sleeade since he was tin-
last worst on statute labor, township drains ami turnpikes; now he Is
the complete authorltj on a system
nf transportation that Includes twenty-live thousand miles of railway,
tit-sides several thousand miles of
lakes, rlveta ami canals, wiib thousands of miles of railway projected
to all parts ol an empire ni balf-dIt-
covered territory. Yel II was only
lust summer that one of his plain
enlist it ueii is, calling on ihe minister
at bis Hrockville home, found a
still plainer man sweating like a
farm laborer ns he swung a scyihe,
cutting weeds in his own backyard—
the patlnnastt-r onee more.
Such is the plain, simple and comprehensive, yel half-mysterious
Oeorge Graham, who is as Canadian
as a bull thistle and as Irish as a
shamrock. Such a man you never
can quite lay out nr wind up. He
has always left thai Immeasurable
element of easy, elastic go that limbers up ar naturally as a sapling
grsiws. Such be was in the Ontario
legislature, when for a while be wns
plain  (ienrge   (iin)intu, ihe member
from Hrockville. Hut it was not
Imig till this oiitsweeplng Irishman
with the long elbow In came nu ng-
gtessive provincial secretary In the
Into lamented Itoss government; when
it was discovered that lure was a
man who had somehow the ultimate
faculty of leadership. There came a
day when fleorge IV Graham was
the visible and tangible hope of the
party that bis old opponents iu
Morrishurg pretty nearly wiped ofi
lhe slate fur the time on that
memorable January day in 1905.
George P. Graham, as leader of the
Ontario opposition, was the spectacle sif a hig man witb a small retinue. Hut when he faced .lames
Pliny Whitney, bis old-time opponent,
as leuster, it was understood that
lure was a pair of duellists good for
years of slugging: though nny student sif    purely   human nature knows
Ob, welt, comparisons are odious,
especially when political, (ienrge P.
might bave stayed in the legislature
to tie a thorn in the side of Sir
•lames of Morrishurg. Hut there
came a day when the mort astute
Citizen id Canada had need fnr a man
to till a gap that for years bad caused him sleepless vigils. When the
successor ol Hlair himself needed a
successor the hand ol selection went
forth and naturally picked George P.
(iraham off the family tree. The
oluin, unostentatious Irishman who
COUld have as gracefully occupied the
platform of a village hall packed Ins
official trunk and went to Ottawa,
and the very day he took nlluv was
(he day the Quebec bridge fell.
Now, this was a bast augury for
the new minister ot railways, wlm,
being Irish, might have been rrcilitt'd
■ailli superstition. In nil public
works disasters (n Panada there had
lieen mme to equal the -Quebec
bridge; a hig link in a great railwav
project undertaken by the department
.if  railways   suddenly gone to   the
bottom of the SI. Lawrence with a
loll of eighty odd lives. This was
the hrst vivid prospeet tbe new inin-
Istei bad  to face.   It   was enough In
make bim wish he had never left the
Couniv of Dundas and The Brockville
Recorder. Hut he faced it. The
story of that and or its reconstruction will lie one of the large items
to the credit of George P Graham
Then there was the Intsrcolonial,
the proverbial enigma of transportation and the byword ol oppositions.
The Intercolonial bad lieen regarded
as a farce, having the (acuity of losing money better than any hole in
the ground up in Cobalt. George P.
(iraham had never hariki-rs-d site!
any Mich enigma. He simply (ell hell
to it, along with the (.Jueliec bridge.
Hut he tackled it without (ear 01
favor. There were peculiar and intrinsic difficulties, more in numbei
ami more varied in character than
can well be discussed in am article
like this. Here was an Ontario
man chief of a railway svsletu which
since its inception had been regarded
as   the    natural   perquisite   ol tbe
Maritime Provinces,   .fust what that
I meant   the     minister   ol   rallwaj -
ought to know Utter than any other
'man.     lie acted on the initiative o(

i that he had been called to his port-

cat's-paw tn a government, but to be

the members of the Voting Ladies'
(i tii hi, Hie Knights of Columbus and
especially the members of Hie choir.
He thanked Ihcin for their presentation iu language that showed his appreciation, not so much for ttie matters themselves, as for the spirit he-
himt it.
"If," said lie, "our membership
has increased three-fold during my

has grown too small to hold our con-
gregalioti; if the Word has flourished
niuongst you (and indeed all these
things are true) il is owing not su
much lo me or to my endeavors as

By Foxcroft Davis
IT has been snlil tbat having an admiral aboard
ship In tike titivltiK a uiutber-ln law lu the house.
Technically the lutiulrnl in a passenger and knows
nothing ot the conduct uf the Khi|>, hot this sort
ut au admiral happens only onee in a blue omun.
The commander of His Majesty'! gunboat Porcu-
pine, lying uflT Ihe mouth uf (lie Klang Hlver
and having on honrsl Vice Admiral Hnrbord, 0. It*,
felt a thrill of ecstaey when the Admiral betook him-
self to Number Five of the torpedo boat division fur
a cruise up the winding* and turnings of the river.
Bach of tho young lieutenants commanding a torpedo boat lu the division felt extremely nervous lent
he should have tbe honor of Ihe Vice Admiral's presence.
There were things to try tlie temper of nu admiral
with a torpedo boat division commanded by little
boys, as Admiral Hnrbord considered these young
commanders. Especially was tills true when lhe
duty consisted lu ostensible torpedo boat practice,
hut really looking Into the tributaries of the Kl-aug,
nnd watching fur outbreaks of murder, arson nud
disguised piracy.
The Chinese are a wary nice, especially where
tlie hind and the water* meet nud Ihe cunning if
tbe Orient Is opposed to ihe cunning of the Occident.
J'hey know n gunboiit from n tnr|*eslo boat, and will
scurry away from the one nml loiter Impudently In
ihr presence of the other. Itet-tdos. torpedo ''outs
are frail craft, unit, like the muiientlng stark, one
good blow well delivered can do for them.
Perhaps Admiral Harimnl would iml have ventured so far up lhe Kl-aug except that he had a
string of communication with the I'nreupliie, lying
nff ihe mouth of the river.
There wa* no International agrectueul—oh. no. imt
the least bit of ll-imt. by a happy coincidence, the
American gunboat  Aletin.  with it Consul mi I rd,
bad come up the river t.. Investigate some cummer*

There were foui of [licae lleuieuiinis In-side* Me-

Hurl anil   viewed   htm   with   lhe  gi teal  distrust,

buy. Hyde, was un Honorable, and. worse si III. played
the violin In an acceptable man tier. There Is u um*
uml aiilaguiiisui beiweeu vlullim and lorjiedoes, a*
everybody will admit.
Admiral llurimrd, looking over his aiihortlluaies,
Cutis'luded Ihal, except l.lciitenunl .McKensle, lioni'
uf them was s-juallUcd lo take care or hi nisei:    Also.
that Baleatler needed the fostering care of an ml
mlral more than any of the rest. He announced,
therefore, tbat he would make a cruise of observation
up the river In Number One In the "nurse of a day ur
two. At this a pall of gloom settled upon tlie countenance of Bales tier and Lieutenant McKeuste's splr-
Its suddenly ruse. The Admiral would not in any
pIrcuinstances have culled Ills conference In the hare
little cabin of Number Five, with these youngiters, h
council of war. He briefly dictated to them their
business lu those waters. This was, under the gul*a
of torpedo boat evolutions, to liml oul things iho Chi
nese river officials did not wish known If anything
was really wrong it could he rapidly convcyej to the
Porcupluo, which, having lately heen overhauled at
Shnnghul, could do her seventeen knots easily, and
mete out justice ft  her mnlii ami secondary hat
(cries.   Also, she had boats ami men enough to punish
nny recalcitrants,   sin no ac ml  were the torpedo
hunts io du more than act as scouts.
"Above all things, gentlemen," said ihe Admiral In
nu awful voice, looking around ihe (able upon bis
you life' commanders, "remember this l* an expedition
of observation only, ir a force Is needed lo strike it
blow It will lie done by the gunboat."
This  remark  was  received  In  rcsj tfui  silence,
but at that moment the Admiral happened lo knock
a   marine  glnss  off   tho   lahle.   and   111   the clatter
lla lest ler.   lhe   heir   In   U iirhbuu,   whispered   to
Itussell, the commander of Number Two:—
"Not If I can help li."
To this Russell returned nn Inlolllgoiil wink.
Presently ihe Admiral dismissed his subordinates.
Bales I ler received tbe silent tribute uf sympathy
frum hi* colleagues, nnd was su depressed by the
prospect of an admiral's presence on Number one
thai he asked the csunmntiders <*r Two. Tin  and
Four, together wilh  Hyde, his executive olll \ to

When the live young officers were gathered around
lhe table In the little cabin of Number One and .1

"All the lieutenants commanding much dissatisfied with Hie Admiral's orders. They have nu taste
for running down pirates and Boxers and letting the

ihe cigars were served wc were turned out of the
room, but through devices berclsifore explained we
hei.nl ihe cotiversiilhm."
And ihi*. was Iln ivcrsiilloii:

The Mysterious Tower.
A new nml Interesilug feuture had been added tu
the InlidscaiH1 since Bnlesiler had lasl si  li, the
vtar- before, Tills wa- a 101 wire lower, nhvhmsly n
loukoiil tower, l.n the right hank of ihe river, half a

The air was deadly Iml and a while hcaMuiXO hit

to 11 hundred yards, wn* lhe alli'Md gniuary, hulll

if the river bank.
Number One -steamed fast across the opeu lake, tbe
people on tbe banka n-arcel.v taking tluit- from their
labors tu glance at the slate colored phantom vessel
flying past. Those grubbing millions or Chinese
were accustomed to the sight of foreign devils on
tierce ships, with wonderful apparatus for killing
men, steaming sboul the Chinese waters. In every
rase it was the Chinaman who paid tbe price. Borne
»f them  realized  that  they could die hut  e, und
dked  meanwhile  tu rob and  Incidentally  murder.
When these touched a hair of the head of n ISliropeuU
it cost a dosen Chinese lives. Itui thai mattered
utile tu anybody.
Number One slowed down cl«o lu the granary and
was Instantly surrounded by Chinese hnnls with
vegetables  und  fowls   for  sale.    Usually   these  com-
1 lilies were bought recklessly by the foreign devils,
Imt on this occasion, although trade was keen, the
chaffering was prolonged, it took n leather lunged
Interpreter half an hour to sell a pair of ducks, tlie
marriage portion of his daughter, and everything was
correspondingly and unac intnbl) discussed hy the
purchasers in Number One.
Meanwhile, Bales tier, ou the bridge, was lindlng out
things.   One thing his sharp eye-  Led tilled him
with unholy Joy. This wns n chain stretched across
from Granary P0I111 to a group or si oui piles uu the
upp.isiic hank. The chain was under waler and wns
nm III designed to catch a small vessel Mow the
water  line.   Rales tier shrewdly  surmised  that  the
chain might he worked In such a way as to let lhe
how of the vessel pass over It nud then futil the
llanges uf ihe screw, which would he very uu healthy
for the screw. This chain was a simple but effective
euglt f deviltry,
Having "pent iwu hours in Investigation, Number
Oue (timed her nose I si ward the lookout lower, Tlm
heaven- burned like molten brass upon the st cum Ing
earth and biasing river. II wa* ns bul a* the stoke
huh- uf Hades. Tlie usual effect uf such heal was
depresalug, bill Bnlesiler, mi the bridge, where the
heal seurcbcsl his feci through his thick whofs and
made dark streaks across Id* nose and cheeks, was
happy beyond words. It would go hard with him If
any gunboat should clear out lhe nest of pirates
wliich he felt sine existed at Granary Point.
The Great Conspiracy.
When N lier One was close beside the lookout
tower the launch was lowered a ith Bnlesiler and
Hyde, (everywhere human beings awnrmed, except
nt the lower. There a solitary Chinese was nn tcunrd.
He miked volubly to Bnlesiler. wlm did nm under-
stnnd a single word and did not 1 1 to.    He made
id- wish, however, easily understoid hy the Chinese, which was to see the inside of llie lower. A
heavy Iron studded door, fastened with a grenl pad-
luck, let! to 11 sleep staircase, ascending fifty feet
from the ground, There were two laudinns in the
nlulreiiae and before each was n padlocked door.   ,
Bales tier was so charmed with what he saw mnl
the part lhe tuner would play lu Ihe conspiracy
hai. lied the day before OU board Number One tbat
In- ret kles-ly bestowed all the money in his itockels
un lhe Chinese Janitor ami made him and all Ids family
ri. li for life.
Then Bales I ler returned tu Number Oue and
-teamed back down lhe river lu the brilliant, swelter
iii**. blazing, torrid noon. When he reached tbe an

Aylwln was uf iln* nunc opinion, ami In a llllle while
the launch steamed off am) Number one lay m anchor,

ll -au* liol until ificr tunnel H1.1l .\11mUr one, Ad
miral Harbord's pet torpedo boat, reached the anchoring ground and Joined the other Tour Utile vessels of
the division, which were assembled liy that time.
Hiilestier went aboard Number flvo and poured Into
the Admiral's greedy ear lhe story of Number One's
discoveries that day. Two Important features, however, he omitted to mentlou, one was that he suspected ihe granary on Granary Point was an arsenal and
the other was the chain stretched across the channel,
which wns likely fo prove awkward to vessels attempting tu puss It. But he enlarged upon the lookout
lower and the benefit it would lie if the Admiral would
go ui' the river ami see things himself from thnt point
of vantage.
The Admiral promptly |>ut Ids head Into the noose
so obligingly held open hy Bnlestlor. And when the
latter artfully suggested that the mall boat would he
coming up the river ihe next morning Admiral Hnrbord decided that it would be best to go up the river
In lhe cool of the evening the next day and anchor
fnr the night and make their observation iu the morning. When the Admiral snld this ihe commander of
Nu. 1 could have fallen upon his ue. k nnd embraced
him lu rupture and gratitude. The Admiral having
departed, rtyde, lhe chubby cheeked, was sent fur in
the cabin ami the Joyful trend of events was confided
io him.
"How will we get the quarter master on hoard':"
asked Hyde, blinking delightedly at Bnlesiler. "Tho
Admiral, you know, possesses an .ill seeing eye.
Thank the l.nrd, he doesn't love Number One ns he
hives Number Five."
"I think I can Imsl Stubbs to gel aboard. Just
keep 11  bright  luokout."
A bright lookout was kept, and Jusl as the In 1, still
nlghl paled before the hot, bright, torrid dawning ihe
mall bout was seen approaching, It came alongside
Number Five, and then visited hi turn the other lor

The dark ami sultry night bad fallen upon the land
aud the muddy river when Number 'tne'* anchor
kissed the ground at the entrance to the widening

assured the Admiral thnt very Utile more could be

The Admiral, believing this, gave notice thnt he
would debark and InvestiifDte things for himself tbe

The Admiral Trapped.

Stubbs, Inning over i.u* parapeli yelled lu sten
torian Chinese* to several Chinese loitering below
watching wlrh puzzled aud narrowing eye- ihe performances. Among them was Ting, lhe keeper of
the tower.   Tills Is whal Stubbs said to Tine.
"The   Admiral   has   suddenly   Insl   hi-   mind,   g	
crazy, sheer cracked. Tho devil possesses libit, lie
Is lighting the door tu gel down to tbe ground that
he may order the torpedo boat to destroy everything
in sight, and he swears that he himself "ill desecrate tho graves of your ancestors, Keep fast tlie
doors of tbe tower until the torpedo boat returns and
we may chain the Admiral up."
Ting, who had in his shoe a couple of gold Bover
eigne acquired from Stubbs, screamed back, with nu
Intelligent look lu his eye:—
"We will not let him out until the vessel returns.
He sUhEI not desecrate our ancestors' graves."
Meanwhile the landing party from Number One was
working as one man. and a Trojan at that. Under tho
lead of half a dozen frightened Chinese with pistols
held at their heads the bags of grain were hciu. tossed
apart and pistols and muskets were being hauled out,
They were so numerous thai Baleatler ordered every
Chinese lu Sight, and .here were hundreds ol  them
to assist lu the work of rer avlng the arm- and loading them upon Number Om i boats.
Both Hot and Thirsty.
Then came the more dlffli ult Job of gettlug up four
hundred boxes .-f fixed ammunition sunk lu tbe soft
mud around the granary. But with four hundred
Chinese, Incited to work by the arms and example
of a hundred British seamen, tbe work was oom- In
a surprisingly short time.
As Hiilestier, revolver In hand, watched the totllUft
men at work in tbe blistering heat, be glanced every
now and then toward the tower half a mile nway.
Occasionally he saw Admiral Harbord's tall figure
Btrldlng up and down the platform, and waving his
arm- like a Dutch windmill, followed by llydc. while
Stubbs kept up a steady volley of Chinese toward
the llateulug upturned Anlatlc faces below. Then, in
despair, the Admiral won'.I rush down ami begin
again the kicking and pounding at the door, followed
by Hyde and Stubbs
"Poor old chap." thought Baleatler, wiping his
face, "how hot he must be and what wouldu'i he give
for a wiii-key nnd soda at this moment! However,
I'm Ju-t as boi and as thirsty as he, and i won'i gel
anything to drb k any quicker.**
in exactly two hours and forty minutes sh thj
anus and ammunition in the granary had hen tram
ferred to Number one The chain bad hem unfastened and wa> rolled up upon the torpedo boat's for
ward deck, balancing tbe arms nud ammunition
loaded aft, whk*h made her so low in tbe water thai
everything waa awash over the low freeboard.
A- -"..n as ber nose was turned toward the tower
Stubbs shouted oul to Ting some directions, which
resulted tn the heavy door on the ground Boor being
thrown hack, and :he tramp of t1:- b : I I toese coming
up the smfrs to open the other doors was heard. As
h- iquare, leathery face.sppeared at the las, door
Stubbs, following the instruct! ns conveyed In Admiral Harbord's lurid eye, seised tbe Chinese nnd
bumped bis bead thrice against the wooden door,
yelling at tbe s.>me time in English:—
"You Infernal, treacherous heathen, what do vou

KDDllO    MARINO    II \D     NOT     A
Attell won the decision at Calgary
mi Monday night from Eddie Marino
in a fifteen round contest. It was
.1 stall from start to finish on the
pari of Attell. It was easily seen
that the world's featherweight cbam-
,11011 wus pulling his blows to let
Marino go the limit. At that Mar-
inn received a terrible punishment.
Attell would use left iab time after
time, jusl hard enough to cut up his
npponcnt without knocking him out.
I'lie lirst round was fought under
straight rules, and Marino received
several lelt jabs followed by rights
lo wind or kidneys. The mounted
police interfered and threatened to
•itoji tho contest unless the contestants fought under the clean break
rules The result was a farce as
lar as clean breaks went. Both men
lived up to the rule for a round and
then both hit time after time in
clinches, Marino fought a very
name flghl He was bleeding from
ihe mouth and nose in the second,
which continues! up iill the end ol
the light. Some ol ihe rounds were
.-ut down tn two minutes, one only
going a minute and ten seconds. The
last live rounds was nothing hut
clinches on the part of Marino. Attell did not try to knock Marino out
hut was perfectly satisfied with continued jabbing wliich was enough to
give him the decision. Marino only
lauded ahoul three times, his blows
always lulling short of the shifty
champion The house was a poor
one, and on ihis account the preliminaries were cut o-:t, much to the
disappointment of the crowd. Jimmy Sewell refcreed the tight, but
could not keep tbe men under control.

The Policy of
As you go through the various retail stores and note
their offerings on counters ami in windows, it wilt strike you
that (or the same quality of goods, prices everywhere are
just about the same. "Why, then," you say, "have certain
stores developed into such wonderful institutions? What
fas-tor has lifted them from the mediocre class aud made
them distinctly successful?" Vou will find that it Is not
mere price, important as economy may be to the buyer. It
is not only quality, essential as that may be to the holding
of trade. Hut it is somethiu-g more. It Is their deliberate,
definitely planned policy ot pleasing customers and of course
primarily acting in an honorable, fair manner.
At the very beginning let me say that good values must
be given to the public as the foundation of anv lasting success. As advertising is one ot the chief means of coming
into contact with the public, every advertisement that goes
out should truly represent the house nnd should be hacked
up fully by the goods it advertises. And when special values are advertised, the purchaser should know beyond the
shadow sif a doubt that be is getting extra value Ior his
Hut over ami beyond tbe merchandise, Its mechanical
manipulation and the advertising of it, is the problem of
handling the public and pleasing it. The true test ol
courtesy on the store's part conies not so much at tbe time
goods are sold as in the handling of complaints and the affording of Utile points in service. Every store meets buyers with a smile and gracious treatment—at least It should.
Rut when you have occasion to return nr exchange goods,
to make a complaint regarding quality, or In some way tsi
try tn obtain satisfaction tor u real or fancied grievance-
bow sloes the store receive you? With the same gracious
desire to please or with long face and multiple objection** •
It is the treatment received at this time that classifies the
store in the estimation of the customer.
Human beings arc not like merchandise, nor ure they to
tie handled like merchandise. Dealing with the purchasing
public is a pr<>blem in personality, ami it is through the
point of contact, wherever it may be; at the counter, through
correspondence or wherever service may be rendered, that
the favorable impressions arc created which ultimately constitute one of the firm's greatest assets.
When a purchase is made tlie buyer will lie either satisfied or dissatisfied witb his purchase and the treatment he
receives1, Tlie article taken away may give satisfaction,
while the treatment given tlie customer before he finally

impression which coalesce into a linn's reputatisni, like those
wliich make up reputation ot an individual, are tormed hy
what may seem the merest triiles
At tlie very least a policy should be adopted which more
than meets tlie public halt way To begin with, tbe attitude of inviting and encouraging the public to make known
any dissatisfaction witb elt-ber treatment or goods, goes a
long way In Inspiring confidence. Once a dissatisfied customer makes hit grievance known, he offers opportunity for
tbe merchant to make a lasting impression as to his fairness
and squareness. Ot course no merchant can afiord tu give
the purchaser in every instance all be asks for, but fie can
afiord to show liberality to sucb a degree that his store nil
have an atmosphere ot cheerfulness, courtesy and service.
When the public bas learned through experience that the
name of a house it synonymous with the treatment that
gives satisfaction, even though a clerk docs fall down occasionally the bouse is not blamed. Rather the clerk is blamed for being out ot harmony with tbe house and tbe incident does not cause the customer to feel any permanent resentment.
The wisest policy is for the merchant to put the basis nt
settlement up to the customer and to approach as nearly as
possible the buyer's Idea of what a fair settlement would be.
After all, this It but a matter of reciprocation; the merchant must show ai much confidence In tbe public as lie expects the public to have in him* He is virtually putting

advertisement. It is the narrow minded merchant who ob
jeets, as ho thinks, to being Imposed upon hy a customer

merchant looks beyond and sees what a benefit tn bim it is
to do a favor for a customer aud even if lie Is impsiscil mi

sure the third one Is a pleased and satisfied patron, and he
advertises your house far and wide.
