His Grace replied to the address In
the following terms:
My Dear People of the Church of the
Holy Name of Mary, Cranbrook:
Then1 is nothing that you could
possibly say in your address that
could give me greater pleasure than
the words in which you have just
expressed your fidelity and steadfastness to your holy faith. Splendid
good not only to preserve tlie sacred
treasures of your holy faith that
have lieen hundod down to you from
generations, but to educate your
children along the same lines. Education, my dear friends, will preserve
the faith in your children unto further generations. I'nfortuuately we
liud people in the world, thank God,
not so commonly out here as in other parts, who are afraid to acknowledge themselves Catholics, somewhat
timid of the principles of their holy
religion. They are the most pitiable*,
and tlio most ignorant creatures in
the world, because they blush at that
Catholic faith, whieh Is nothing less
than a heritage from the saints and
a gift from God. When I say that,
I do not wish to quarrel with those
around us, not blessed as wc liaVo
beep. This faith which has como
down to UK from the saints should be
our greatest pride, instead of a subject of fear, because it was founded
by our Divine Lord. It is I'hc faith
that our Divine Master Himself
brought into this world awl imparted
to men. And if that faith has been
tampered with, it is all the more dc-
placablo for those who an* unsettled
and filled with doubts in consequence.
Kor fifteen hundred years there was
only an occasional heritie arising
here and there. But in the sixteenth
century many began to dispute the
Catholic f.iitr^nd many have pone
on following those heresies. Now o*""
care must be to save our children
from those heresies that have been
scattered throughout the world. You
propose to erect schools for the education of your children; these arc the
most pleasing words you routd address to mt*. Education without religion is like training a soldier without n gun, and what is the good ol a
soldier who Is not armed for defence'1 Very often criminals are
those who have boon educated without God, because education without
God only makes men more careful
and shrewd in the pursuit of evil,
lhat is why the church lias always
insisted that the children shall have
religion taught them in her schools.
Education is not simply to learn
hem to read and write. In addition
to tins we must cultivate in them
Ihe knowledge of God ami of His
church. Therefore, I say again. II
gives me great comfort to know that
you aie living to preserve the holy;
faith io your children. I would say
the school before the new clench.
it is quite evident that tlie present
church will soon bo loo small to hold
the rapidly increasing congregation,
inn the needs ol a school are greater
Ulan lhe needs ot a new Church. You
tan always divide up some way, and
all assist at the holy flaorlilco ol tho
imiss, but itiii cannot noglcct your
children, liecause you run tho risk ot
their losing ih.it gift of faith beyond
coni rid. Winn il comes time to
teach them (he truths ot their religion, they are already poisoned with
I thank you for your expressions ot
good will towards mvselt and assure you thai you will always have
a [dare in my prayers and sacrifices,
and also your children. In testimony of tny affection for you, I beg
God to bless you and your children's
children into future generations.

-lames Austin,
Calgary, Alta., May 25.—Luther
McCarty, heavyiweighl champion ol
the world, died in the ring here \es-
terday from a chance blow which dis
located his neck, the end of his battle
with Pelkey coining after 1 minute
and 15 seconds of lighting. There had
been one or two mix tips of an inconsequential character, then came a
clinch. Referee Eddie Smith separated the men. Doth squared off in
pugilistic, altitudes. Neither seemed
the worse foi the clinch. Suddenly
McCarty was seen to double up in a
crouching attitude. To the spectators it looked as though his crouch
was simply a lighting position. But
he continued to go over, bis eyes rolling in his- head, tlien Ih* collapsed
and Tell full length on tbe floor of
the ring.
The referee, assuming that^he had
heen knocked out,, stood over him to
count off the fatal seconds.
It was the final count of the young
champion. Arthur Pelkey, winner of
the heavyweight championship at
such a heavy cost, stood at one side
of his fallen adversary. He could
scarcely realize what had happened.
By this time the referee had become
alarmed. Me called for a iloctcr,
several responding.
The Royal Northwest Mounted Police were called in to clear the ring
of the crowd, which bad swarmed
over the ropes. The physicians
worked over the s-tricken man tor
eight minutes, when they pronounced
hint dead.
There was probably ten thousand
men in tho arena when it became
known that McCarty was dead. What
a few minutes before he had been a
crowd whetted "with the lust of
battle by the two or three preliminaries that hail been fougjlit and by the
encounter of the two champions,
had now become a howliog mob, hut
thc news put a quietus on the spirits
of the Spectators and they tiled quietly out of tho arena, shocked beyond
expression hy lhe tragic ending of
the battle.
Pelkoy, who is out on bonds of
$10,000, furnished by Tommy Burns
and E. C, Lowes, absolutely declines
to discuss ihe I raged*.. He is very
muoh distressed over the unhappv
ending of his encounter with McCarty.
Irnmedlalely after Referee Smith
had made his decision, awarding Pel-
key the decision on what every ' one
thought was a knockout, Pelkey Wns
hurried oul of the ring, jumped into
a motor oal     anil was driven to the
ciiy. He had scarcely reached town
when he was advised that McCarty
was dead, He hurried hack to the
arena and on arriving there was taken Into custodj bj the mounted    pa
Hums' arena, the scene of Saturday's tragic event, when Luther Me
Cartj lost [Ms life, was totally destroyed In  fire at an onrly hour   this
 nung. The origin of the lire is    a
mystery. Four oilier deaths were
narrow!j averted. Wesley Benson, his
wife and two children wero asleep In
the coiner of the building and esenp
oil just as the (lames commenced lo
lick up the portion of tlie building
which they occupied. The building is
covered by insurance.
Accidental death was the verdict of
the jury which Investigated the deal!)
of Luther McCarty, heavyweight
champion pugilist, who died in I hiring on Saturdaj after less than
Iwo minutes of lighting with Arthur
Pelkey. The jury was unable to ii*
responsibility for the death of Mc
('arty and exonerated Pelkey. This
iloes not mean lhal Pclkey's troubles, us f.ir as this unfortunate affair
is concerned, are al  an end, ll  is
understood to be the purpose of thc
crown io arrest him on a formal
charge of manslaughter.
Billy McCarnoy, Mccarty's manager, aud Eddie Smith, sporting editoi
of the Chi.ago Examiner, who refer*
ied lhe bout, will be asked lo give
the authorities assurance lhal tlioj
will he hen* when the matter comes
up tor trial. li is possible thai
McCaruey will furnish bonds and return to the United Stales. W R,
Hearst's Chicago representative has
advised Smith lo remain in Calgary
until Ihe matter is settled.
The testimony of the surgeons who
performed the autopsy was to Lho effect lhat the vertebrae of McCarty's
neck had been dislocated. A medical
expert, called in by the defence, testified lh.it this dislocation could havo
been caused in some former fight.
William McCarney, McCarty's manager, while giving his testimony, broke
down and cried like a child.

CRANBROOK, B.C.,May M. 1913
Premier Horden, speaking at Toronto stated thati Sir Wilfrid Luur-
ier's naval proposals wcca "undts-
guisedly ot a separatist tendency."
II so then than four years ago 'Mr.
Horden must have heen a thoroughgoing separatist.
Hinging with truth, ringing with
the soundness of real loyalty, real
(lean and blood defence, real n°rvo
tingling patriotism, and at the same
w it'll clear, cold, dispassionate, reasonable logic, Sir Georgt Ross, tho
Liberal leader oi the senate, has
moved that the naval bill be reterred
to the people Now will come a storm
ot protest! Irom the Canservalive
press, defaming tlie senate and defaming Sir George, because It has
been the policy ot Premier Horden to
keep this naval policy from being referred to the. people. The senate is
useless, their mission defunct, because they ask thai. the.voice of the
people be,heard. Between, thc irrational frenzy of Premier Horden tc
gag lirst the house and then the
people ftnd force his obnoxious policy,
arises in mighty majesty the Canadian senate and in cold, measured -,\v-
cents declares tliat the voice of the
people is supreme. Let the people
he heard from and on one will question the decision.
Patriotism and love of country are
parts of character which, it is said,
if properly taught to children, will
like other good things, grow up wilh
them and become part ot their character. iBut the absence ot grownups in demonstrations like that of
Empire day, is poor encouragement
lor the youngsters. To assimilate,
prido in country and flag, which
children should, can only be accomplished by tho younger ones witnessing a strong interest in these
things by elders. Not one of the
speakers turned up Saturday morning and there was only a meagre
handful of witnesses present, at the
exercises given by the children. One
or two school teachers and a couph
ot the local pastors were in evidence, their presence made conspicuous
by the. absence ot the great bulk ot
parents. Very poor enthusiasm on
which to mold patriotic Canadians of
the next generation, or even lo
keep alive the holy principles of love
ot freedom, God and country and the
great) historic achievements for
which tho dag and government
stands, even In this generation.
We heard only the other day that
in a certain city men would guarantee a prospective buyer that the
price would rise to such a height in
thirty days. And the guarantee Was
.Justified by tlie immediate event,
though nol by the growth ol the city
or of the country around. So, you
presently discover millionaires who
have lost the raculty ot writing
three-figure checks. And they wonder what Is tho matter with,their
fortunes. The fact is that their
fortunes aren't there — like the
prices on which they were based.
They are out of sight. It you'll
leade 'em alone they may cotno home,
leave 'om alone Ihey may come home,
and bring tlieir tails behind thorn.
Hut meantime taxes have got to he
paid, and payments arc tailing due,
and the real estate millionaire
doesn't care to look on his limousine
when it movoth itsell aright, if he is
a very far-seeing man, tie senses the
Balkan war as the cause of the constriction in currency. Your millionaire who has go-own up In a night
from financial obscurity, never
dreams that it isn't the Balkans that
is worrying him; but thc simple
little fact that he has been piling up
prices and bricks taster than tho
farmer has heen growing the grain, a

What might wclj he termed the
bankers' band act is all ready (or a
third reading at the house ot commons. It is now a foregone conclusion that it will be passed with ;
comfortable steam - roller majority
and Canada will find itself at the
mercy of a small group of financier*
and worse.
There was a great deal of talk
with regard to the necessity of
amending the bank act, so Hon. W<
T. White, minister of finance, took it
upon himself to amend it. The cOtt
scquonco was that he consulted hi*
intimate friends who control tb*
hanking system of Canada, and
tween them fhey worked out ., serial,
of amendments which give the final
cial institutions greatly increased
power. The present administration
will go down in history as the most
offensively "Hig interest" government which ever crushed the people
of the Dominion. The money trust
was strong enough before, but with
Mr. White as finance minister it has
an ally which makes the combination
The Conservative party is not
tireiy composed of wealthy men, but
it seems to he a characteristic ot
thnt party to bow to tho will of the
leader, no matter to what lengths he
may go. The amended bank act is
perhaps the most disastrous legislation of the session as far as the
common people are concerned. They
do not realize, apparently, the meaning ot the amendments, or the legislators would be petitioned by every
constituency in a Canada to light
against it. Tho hanks arc given the
opportunity to charge any rate of interest they see fit to charge, and to
collect it in advance. 11 is useless to
believe or try to believe that they
will not grasp at the opportunity-
All this is the result, ot the appointment ot Mr. White. It was
known at the time that he was liand-
in-glove with the financiers, but surely thii premier never imagined that
he would dare go so tar. Another fivtj
years ot the Horden government
would place Canada in the most uncomfortable position possible, wrecking the freedom of all but moneyed
men who nre Independent ot the banks
aud bankers.—Saturday Sunset.

A new era in the musical life of
Cranbrook will be opened on Fri
day evening with a concert to lie
given by the Craubrook Choral
Society. The successes of the
Operatic Society's productions
during the pnBt three years hnve
prompted those interested to go
further into the realms of music,
and the result has been thi! forma,
tion of a society which has for its
object tlie consideration of musical
works entirely.
The society, which numbers
about fifty members, has been
practising for the last two months,
and the work done ha» been so ex-
cedent that the executive has deoi-
ded to present to the music loving
public thc result of their efforts on
Friday evening.
The numbers taken up by the
society nre quite varied in style
and present good opportunities for
thi; exposition of fine choral singing. A mong the heavier works are
the " March" from " Tannhauser,"
and " Hail bright abode!" by
Richard Wagner; and " The Song
of the Vikings," by Eaton Fanning.
The lighter numbers include "O
(iladsome Light," from the " Golden Legend," by Arthur Sullivan ;
the gipsy chorus from " II Trovn-
tore;" and " See how the darkness
of night dissolves." The following
part songs, which give abundant
opportunity for finished choral
singing, aro also on the program :
"O hush thee, my baby," by Arthur S. Sullivan, and "Good night,
good night, beloved," by Ciro Pin-
The concert will ho immediately
followed by a dance, which promises to bo the last of the season.
Mrs. Wallinger will supply the
orchestra and refreshments will l>e
served. The tickets, which include l)oth concert and dance, are

Attorney-Gcncrat Bowser was held
responsible by the Methodists in conference at Vancouver last week for
the nonretitorcemciit of law in Hritish
Columbia, nnd reiterated that appeals to him had been in vain time
after time in regard to law enforcement concerning the segregated district, gambling, lotteries, betting at
race tracks, etc.... A committee appointed on the subject brought in the
following scathing report and finding:
"In regard to the social evil your
committee regrets to have to reporti
that Irom two sections ot this prov
ince information! is before us as to
the existence of conditions which call
for immediate action on the part of
all citizens who have the well-being
of this province at. heart.
"1. In- the Kootenay district
there are no less than fourteen cities
'and towns in which the social vice is
either segregated or tolerated. The
police commissioners ot one ot these
cilies publicly declared that they are
in iavor ot the non-en force ment of the
low against vice. In one case thc
police forcer were restrained from the
enforcement of the law by order of
one of the commissioners.
"2. In the city ot Vancouver there
is a recognized area oi segregated
vice which seems to enjoy immunity
from the criminal code of Canada.
An incident of tlte campaign against)
this vice deserves special comment,
■Prosecution under the law was taken
by the police of Vancouver awl certain offenders were convicted hut
when taken to prison were refused
admission by the warden, thus setting at naught his majesty's authority in this province. Protest against
this state of affairs was brought by
important delegations to the provincial government, but as yet no remedial action of which we are aware,
lias followed. We greatly deplore
that such things are possible in this
enlightened province.
"These facts are sufficiently appalling to call for aroused and united
action. But wc have to lace further
the fact thai in thc states of thc American Union adjacent to this province vigorous action against this social vice has been taken recently, and
this province is liable to have,an in
flux of professional prostitutes. Moth*.
ing but a rigid enforcement of our
just Canadian laws against this vice
can save our province from tearful
moral degradation.
"We respectfully request the government to instruct its officials to
vigorously enforce thc law."
As to gambling, the committee deplored the continuance of practices
which arc prohibited by the criminal
code ot Canada and are successfully
suppressed in "ther provinces, especially betting on horse, raws, the
sweepstakes and raffles. "In this
matter much responsibility is thrown
upon the police commissioners. It
4s, therefore, imperative that men
chosen to this office should be only
mon known fo uphold the criminal
code of Canada."

How Concrete
Work Was Made
Easy For You
Thi* Label it your assurance of
tatisfacttry concrete work
UNTIL a lew yean ago farmers considered concrete a rathel
mysterious material, that could be ustd successfully only by
experts. They knew that upon the quality ol" lhe cement
depended much of the success of concrete work. 1hey had no
means of testing cement, such as big contractors employ, and so codJ
not be sure o'jh quality.
Yet the farmer needed concrete.
He was kept from using this best and most economical of materials by
1. Lack of knowledge of how to mix and place concrete.
2. Lack of a brand of cement upon the quality of which he
could absolutely rely.
Canada Cement
has supplied both these requirements.
We employed men to make a thorough investigation of the farmer's
requirements; to find out where and how he could use concrete wilh
profit to himself; to discover all problems he might come across and to
solve them. This investigation was expensive. But when it .was
completed we had the material for our campaign to show the farmer
how and where to use concrete,"and we printed a book, "What the
Farmer Can do With Concrete," for free distribution. That book
makes every farmer who reads it a concrete expert, as far as his needs
are concerned. He finds that there is nothing mysterious about concrete—that a few simple rules supply aH the knowledge required.
At the same time we met the farmers' second objection—inability to
test the quality of cement—by producing cement of a quality that
does not need to be tested.
The Canada Cement that you buy by the bag is the same Canada
Cement lhat is sold by the bain-load for great elevators, buildings and

If your way ot lile carries you in
those days to the great public dinners and functions ol tin* London season there is ono figure that will bv
more memorable to you than any
other. It stands out, from the background ol conventional figures like a
solitary snow peak from the browns
and greens ot the valley. It seems
divided Irom all the rest hy an immeasurable gulf of years. The. figure
in bowed, but still agile, the head, a
splendour ot white, hair white as
the driven snow, heavy white hrows
overhanging the keen and searching
eyes, white heard, complexion white.
This is Ijord Strathcona, and it is
from tho frozen shores of Labrador
that he brings tho snows uf winters
of long ;.[?..
Sydney Smith said of Mncaulny
lhalt he was "like u hook, in
breeches." Ono may say of Lord
Strathcona that he is like Canada in
swallow tails. He is not so much a
man as a legend—tho legend of half
a continent, You shake hands with
him and it is as if you shake hands
with a section ot tho British empire. You talk with him anil it is
as il Canada is before you telling
lii-r astonishing story. And if the accent still betrays some hint of lho
Highlands that only makes Ihe impression more complete, fur, says A.
0. 0. in 1'he "Daily News and Leader," thc eminent Canadian usually
1ms his roots in Scottish soil. Micro
have, been two gtcat currents westward from these islands across tho
Atlantic. One has (lowed from Ireland to the United Slates; one trom
Scotland to Canada. Hoth have had
their sonny in thc same tragedy—
the tragedy of the land.
And In tho track ot the. exiles of
the eighteenth century followed tin;
adventures of the nineteenth. One
day, seventy-fivo years ngo, about the
time when the girl Queen Victoria
was being crowned in the Abbey,
there reached Labrador, to take up
duties under Hie Hudson Hay company, a hid from Kuril's in Moray
shire — his name Donald Alexander
Tin- lad readied (he solitudes nt
Labrador alone, unfriended and poor
It was thc loneliest out|K>st of i
lonely land. Canada, three-quarters
of a ccnlury ago, was still an
discovered country, far more remote
than Australia Is today. The sail-'
ing vessel that carried young Donald <
thither had occupied six weeks over
t-ho journey, and it was not until
later in the year that thc first passenger steamer from Kngland, the
Great Western, arrived in New York
harbor. West of the settlements on
thc St. Lawrence there stretched a
solitude to lhe far Pacific shores.
Over the vast territory, afterwards
known as the province of Ituperts-
land— tbe Manitoba, Alberta, and
.Saskatchewan of today — the Hudson Bay Company held dominion.
Here and there, hut at incredible intervals, a little fort of the company
was planted in tin* trackless wilderness—one, as it were, in Kent, another in I/anenshirc, a third in Scotland. Outside these tiny shelters,
thc primeval forest and the wandering Indian. One of tin' chief of these
oases was Fort Garry, With a white
population numlH-ring a few score
Today Kort Garry is the great city
of Winnipeg,     the Center of the chief
agricultural industry in thc world.
In this mighty transformation no
single influence has played so great a
part as Lord Strathcona. Canada
would havo developed without him,
of course. Hut it would not have
developed so rapidly or in the same
direction. He brought to it at a
critical lime a constancy ot purpose
and a steady faith lhat were of incalculable service. lie himself
would he the last to claim any kinship with tin; superman. "A mother's early training," he will tell you,
"has everything to do with a man's
career. 1 know mine had with me.
She taught me to work -when I was
young, and lo save money—two very
important things in it man's life."
There are other important things
which were not forgotten iu lhal
humble school. He learned lhe lesson of generosity. Hut it is not his
ureal henefaclions—tlie gift and endowment of the Victoria hospital at
Montreal, the equipment ot Strath-,
conn's Horse for the Boor war, thc
millions he has spent on the McGill
University and other Institution**;—
that ate the true witness to his gCtti
croNity; but (he habits of a lifetime.
THE C. P. K,
Hul after all it is his steadfastness
that has been bis chief contribution
to Canada. And the supreme memorial of that steadfastness is lho
Canadian l'aeilic railway. The late
Sir Charles Tapper once publicly declared that but for l^ord Strathcona
that railway would not have been
constructed. The idea of driving a
railway through thousands of miles
of pathless, forests and mountain
ranges to a desolate shore— for
where Vancouver wilh ils noble
streets and hustling life stands today, there was then not even a log
cabin—was one before which the
most courageous adventurer might
quail. H was a more daring idea
than lhe Cape lo Cairo railway
which united two great centres of
world activity. The Canadian Pacific was a plunge through nothing to
nothing. It was a stupendous guess
ut thc future. But Donald Smith
never faltered for n moment. He had
reached middle life and an affluence
that would have turned most men's
thoughts to repose. Thirty years of
work and thrift had brought him out
ot the wilderness and made him the!
financial King of Canada. He was
supreme in the great company that
had Ireld half Canada in fee but had
now surrendered its sovereignty to
the state, and through the Bank 0f
Montreal he controlled with Lord
Mount Stephen the only resources at
all adequate to the enterprise. He
slaked everything upon the venture
wilh a quiet fortitude that has few
Thc story of bis Intervention in
the first Louis Uiel rebellion, where
one rash word would have set the
country in a flame, he won the
people from the rebel leader so that
when later Sir Garnet Wolscloy appeared at the bead of a military expedition the lirst Kiel rebellion Was
at an end—all this stands as a witness not only to bis practical wisdom hut also to his personal and unaffected courage.
This Grand old Man of Canada is

with his vast wealth, his palaces on
both sides ot tlie Atlantic, his pictures and his great reputation, unchanged in intellect and mitral out
look from the honest lad who sailed
westward to make his fortune long
before you and I were born. His
moral philosophy is still that of the
frugal hunm and the frugal mother.
"Kvery mother should teach her
children lo he honest and work and
save their money," he says. "Great
wealth cannot bring happiness. Heal
liappiness must come from a eon
tented mind and hard work. Clreat
wealth is a burden, for one has to
think very hard how to make the

advise arny man to strife after great
wealth. I would rather be a very
good man than a very rich man."
ing on the activities of our finite, individual minds. I
J ti is quite another thing to adopt
a scientific method of placing ourselves at one in thought with the infinite mind that created thc universe
and allow that Mind to do the work.
This latter, and by no means the
former, is the principle hack of the
starting and effectual Mind-healing
that now is sweeping the continents.
To know thnt you and L and alii
things that live, only reflect tbis]
one, immortal, omnipresent, perfect
Life—that is tbe secret of the 'new ,
Mind-healing. I
And in proportion as we know this
certain truth, and hold our minds to
it until there is no room left. iu
thorn for anything-of an opposite nature to disturb or contuse, in that
proportion we arc healed.
This is not emotionalism; nor is it
It points rather in a dcfmi'U' rule
of practice that is fixed and scientific
and complete.—Sunday Morning Tribune, Los Angeles, California.
Thc circus people have requested
the mayor, chief ot police and city
council to give them police protection during the unloading of Kongo—
thc huge elephant just imported from
India. He is unloaded about six
o'clock each morning. Is considered
very dangerous, and if proper officials
arc present) there will he no danger
ot anyone being injured. They hav
also requested that all traffic upon
streets to the circus grounds, over
which "Kongo" will have to travel
will be suspended during lhe hours of
six and seven in the morning. Iu the
event the big Ijeast would meet a
team of horses, a cow, a dog, or
some animal not known to him, he
might prove too much for the ten
kieepers who ate employed to guard
and fight him. He is heavily chained and every precaution is takVn
with the big boast. "Kongo" has
elephant instinct, however, and will
accept pcanuis from menagerie patrons and is seemingly very happy
when in the menagerie tent with the
other animals.
"Kongo" is with the Yankee Robinson circus which shows at Cranbrook ou Monday, .lune nth.
A new kind of healing is gripping
men's attention.
A few nights ago, here in Los Angeles, before an audience of at least
000 people, a nian declared that
toiv many years he had been a victim
ot tuberculosis. Well-known physicians bad diagnosed his ease, pronouncing it hopeless because he had
reached tlie last stages of lhe disease.
Then lie turned to the new healing
and in an incredibly short time was
A woman said, before the same
audience, that one ot her arms had
been withered since childhood. She
applied tlte new healing and her arm
was lengthened and she stretched it
out as well as thc other.
Many persons testified to tlio restoration to health ot eyes and ears
and the banishing ot illnesses ot different kinds, and there was a spirit
ot quiet jubilant inspiration about
the meeting and pervading thc hall
that was itself a healing influence.
Who is this new doctor who is
walking abroad iu our land, and other lands, for the same enthusiastic
meetings of thanksgiving are Ijclng
held in Asia aud Africa as in Europe anil America? Who is this new-
old physician of apparently limitles:)
power wbo uses no knife and carries,
no bag and passes no pills and serums and rubbings of modern Invention as unnecessary?
Yes, his name is Mind-healing; hut
let us gel this correctly, for there
are two kinds of mind-healiug in the
One of them, spelling mind wilh
little   m,    accomplishes results that
ate Insignificant.
The other spells Mind wilh a capi
till. M, and this kind of Mind-healing
is nothing less than a doctor ot omnipotent power who can heal a world
of men born blind, and straights,
limbs, and replace lost organs and
even raice the so-called dead as eas-
even raise the so-called dead as eas-
first place, and sustains it for ever
by Ihe breath of his power.
Many people, when they speak ot
mind-healing, refer to tire first insufficient kind o! force, which is
bound up with the cells of thc linile,
human brain. And they conclude,
very likely with truth, that this
mind-power is good only for nervous
or disordered imagination.
But the scientific Mind-healing that
heals the shriveled arm; and regards
the word "incnrnble" as both impertinent nnd sacrilegious, has nothing
in common with this linile force of
the human will. It is at au opposite pole.

Transportation of live fish is an expensive matter from tbe fact that it
requires from 1 lo 1 gallons of water per pound of fish, according to the
kind, so that a railroad car having
ten tons limit for tbe load can transport only one half to one ton ot live
fish. Messrs. 3dir and Audige now
use a method of freezing the fish in
blocks of ice, according to IMctet's
experiments, and can now transport
large quantity of fish in a relatively
small weight of ice. Tho fish are at
(list contained in a large amount of
water, then while the tank is placed
In a dosed space, oxygen under pressure arrives upon the water, so that
the greater part can now be drawn
oft and the fish remain in good condition in a very small amount ol
water, as Ihe oxygen supplies their
re.spirationu Freezing is now done
by plunging the vessel with the fish
into a refrigerating tank, and in this
way an ice block is obtained in,
which the fish are Irozeii, but will
come to lite again when thawed out.
The block is wrapped around with
suitable coverings anh on the outside
is put a heat-protecting jacket, then
the hlock is ready to be placed on
the car. In practice, such blocks
can be piled up iu refrigerator cars
whose temperature is kept near the
freezing point. Vpon arrival at
their destination, thc fish are put
through a very slow thawing process, which lasts for about ten
hours. The inventors claim that
this saves heavy and bulky Mquid and
there are no complicated or costly
devices needed, the process being a
simple and cheap one.

immediate, aid was, to be given it
should take the form of the largest
nnd .strongest ships of war which
science can build or money could
The first, objection he had to tbe
present bill was on constitutional
grounds. Under tho British North
America Act the parliament was entrusted with defence. The present
bill Bought to put under control of
another government, money that
parliament voted for defence purposes, Thus the conclusive jurisdiction; conferred by the British Ninth
America act was being surrendered In
pari at least.
A second objection was, as Mr.
Horden himself bad pointed out in
1809, that the placing of the control
of the money voted in the hands of a
British minister nol responsible lo
Canada woutdj lead to friction. It
was a doctrine foreign to the whole
trend of constitutional development
under Hritish institutions. The third
objection to the bill was that it did
not provide for any permanent naval
force in, Canada. To use the words
ol Mr. Foster: "There are no home
to it, no Canadian flesh or blood nor
menial attitude'." It provided merely
empty ships. A fourth objection
wdfi that tbe bill did not provide for
any Canadian training nor navaL service in Canada, astdld the naval service acl in IfHO. In the ono case
Idle governmcnl proposed merely io
place ships nl Ihe control of the admiralty.
"Tho ships are lo be given to
Groat Britain," said Sir George,
"merely as empty shells. That idea
is abhorrent to tne. That the ships
are to be maintained! by the British
taxpayers. The poor, Impoverished
purse of Canada sends to Great Britain three empty shells and n-sks Britain to man tbem, and I hen Canada
sits hack and keeps.out of the way of
all harm."
Moreover, then* was no provision
for the construction of ships in Canada or for dockyards. Was Canada
less advanced in engineering skill
than -Japan or China, or Spain
Italy, or Austro-llungary'.'
141 havo confidence," sakl Sir
George, "that u country that has
exorcised the administration of i
third of the territorial expanse of the
British empire is equal to every
deavor of industrial achievement. Let
us not depreciate ourselves."
In an eloquent peroration Sir
George said: "What should we now
do? Kind out what the will of the
people is anil obey that mandate. Tin
dny of small things is past and-gone,
Wo are no longer walking timorously
in the path of destiny; our pulse
beats stronger and our step is (inner, for thu strength.of young man*
hood ta in our \o\m. Hut by. shirking from tire responsibility of man's
estate, not only by listening to
the feeble lone of mediocrity, tmj by
cloudbursts of patriotism will Canada) he admitted into the family of
nations. It is for the statesmen of
today to set the pace for the nexl
generation as well aa for the present, and lo give lhe national ehar-
acter an impetus which will tir(, il
wilh a nOW-ltorn enthusiasm for
higher national ideas. Is there anything in the hill to produce thut effect? Shall our children of twenty
years bene*;' read the history of Canadian naval defence, and cover I heir
faces when Ihey discover that it was
proposed in tbe senate of Canada In
place at Ibe disposal of the Hritish
admiralty a certain number of "modern battleships, but not a single Canadian to man them? Win-*, we
fought for the empire in South Africa we did*- not send empty uniforms. It, was not Nelson's ships
that won the battle ol Trafalgar,
Nelson did not say: 'Englandiexpects
tins day that every ship will do its
duty.' Nelson said: 'England experts tbis day lhat every mun will
do his duty.'
"This bill caHtf lot money, not
men; for models of steel tmd iron,
not for courage and daring; it appeals to no man's flesh and blood; it
offers no Victoria Cross for lives
risked on tho battlefield. Empty as
an exploded cartridge and soulless as
its plated sides, it arouses no sympathy, no sentiment, no emotion of
joy or glory. Should a bill like
this he submitted tor tin* assent of a
royal scion whose ancestors for
man? generations honored the British
constitution us the palladium of liberty and self-government? Our feelings, our judgment, our sense of duty
to our country all combine lo ash
for further delay in the hope that
even at this late hour we may decide
to show to the world that the disrupting forces of party warfare have
been submerged by the loyally of q
United nation, acting for the naval
defence of Canada and of the i empire."
Sir George concluded by moving,
seconded by Hon. Hewitt Bostock:
"That all of the words after the
first 'thai' be struck out and the following substituted: 'This house is not
justified In giving its Assent to the
bill until it js submitted to the judgment of ihe country.1" ■
Hon. Joseph Holdue, replying for
th<! government, said that both t.idrs
of the house seemed to be united in
the desire to assist Ibe mother country. The difference was as tu the
methods. The object of the bill Was
simply lo secure the mainteiiauce of
peace by adding three ships to Britain's guarantee of naval supremacy.
Long Bonch, Onl„ Stay 2(i.- Too
weak to uphold the burden of nearly ten thousand human beings assembled for the festivities of the
Hritish Empire Day celebration,
the land end of the bin double-
decked pier in front of tho city
auditorium collapsed hist Saturday.
Hundreds of people on tho top
deck were dropped down on the
heads of other hundreds crowded
on the deck below,
The lower deck then uave way
and all were dropped down a chute
of shuttered woodwork to tho tide-
washed sands 25 feet below.
Thirty-six persons—mostly women—were killed by the shivered
timbers, or crushed to death by the
falling bodies. Fifty more were
seriously injured, whilo hysteria
and paralyzing fright disabled
A section of the auditorium also
went down in the crash and  the
debris   from it   was added to tli
wreckage that fell  ou top of the
injured and tho dead.
The victims were subjects and
former subjects of Great Britain,
resident, in Southern California,
Prospective damage suits ng
gregating probably $1,000,000 or
more and a grand jury investigation, engaged the attention of city
olbcialB as tlie most probable outcomes nf the disaster.
A searching probe to place responsibility for Saturday's disaster
is promised by Captain John D,
Fredericks, diBtrict-uttorney for
Los Angeles county. Experts will
be retained today to investigate
the cause for the collapse of the
approach to thc structure and the
manner in vhicta it was inspected.
Evidence thus far gathered by
Fredericks and Mayor J. S. Hatch
of Long Beach indicates that tli
supporting approaches! which bent
and snapped under the weight of
the thousands of people who were
endeavoring to piiu entrance to
the building, had been weakened
for some time, and portions of rotten wood were found immediately
beneath the floor which gave way.
How this condition escaped tlie
attention of the ollicers commissioned to inspect it is the question
that will have to be answered to
the county probers.

interesting the Cranbrook Auto-
mobilu Association iu tlie proposition of applying to the Government for the completion of the
road between Yalik and Erickson,
a distance ot '.\\ miles, which would

the government make every effort
tn have this piece nf road com-
pleted by .Inly 1st.
The attention of the Creston
Board of Trade wns culled to this

points out, it will make the natural

Ir* able to sing, lie says tliat at
tin* present moment there is a great
debato on about the best method of
helping the empire from a naval
poinl of view, aud Ihe funny thing
about the debate is lite manner in
which il suddenly transforms itself
into singing competitions. Premier
Horden makes a speech and sits
down. Instantly his supporters
jump up and sing "Rule Britannia.'11
Sir Wilfrid Laurier replies, and his
peroration is tin* signal for the singing of "God Save thc King" by the
Liberals. Hut it must not be supposed that so limited a musical repertoire will meet the demands of
the house, for on a recent occasion
the government supporters startled
everyone by singing "The lied, While
and Hlue," and the Liberals, on re
covering from lhe surprise, responded)

ler beating time. The Conservative!
were not to be beaten and Struck up
another air, which the Scotch correspondent diii nol recognize. This, he
says, proved loo much for the opposition who retired routed, ami the
Conservatives then turned to the gallery and san^ as a dosing ditty
"■Good night, Ladies." The veracious correspondent with a sense of
humor {Scotch) winds op with the
adjuration "Von will thus see how
necessary it is that you must.be able
to sing anil also know the words    oC
the song before you lake, part In Canadian politics." After this let n((
man say tbat Scotch correspondents
or Scotch newspapers lack a siiise of
humor. They, have been the means
of showing us the real reason why
the debate on the naval resolutions
has dragged along for six months and
•incidentally furnished an illustration
of what must have been in the mind
of the poet (Scolch) who sang:
"Oh wad the power some giflie    hie
To sec nursels as itbers see us."
