Opening oi Elk River Valley
Micheal Phillipps Tells of Discovery of Crows Nest
Pass -- First to Locate Coal
Mirliu.'l Phillipps, ni" Tobacco
Plains, was in town llurlltg Ih' week,
ttic first Visit lie IiimI |i.ti.l to ('run
brook in a lout; time. Mnli.nl Phil-
iii>|is is an i>M llmor of ibc obi timers, lie was in East Kootenay in
isiii, in ibc employ of tbe Hudson
I lav    company.       After   the lliiilsiiii
liny closed down their post nt Tobacco Plains, Mi Phillipps was engaged
in prospecting, nappim, ami exploratory work. Subsequently he became Indian agonl ut Kurt Steele,
p/occdlng Un' present Incumbent ot
Uml ofnee, Mr. II. i,. T Oalbralth.
Mr. Phillipps Is an Englishman,
now well advanced in years, Uit still
biile and hearty, uml keenly Interested in the development of tin- section
of the province with which be bus so
long been identified.
Mr. I'billipps talks entertainingly
ol early days and has very interesting yarns to spin of his prospecting
experiences in the early seventies-
Telling of his first visit, iu the fall
of 1873, lo the upper waters of Elk
river, Mr. Phillipps said:
The years following the closing of
the Hudson's Hay post on Tobacco
Plains were spent by me—the summer
in prospecting for gold and exploring
Ihe country—the winter in trapping.
At that time the company still bad
posts and forts on tbe American side
of tbe line in Washington, Oregon
and Montana. These posts were,
however, abandoned when the United
States government paid the claims of
the company. This made the closing
of their station at Tobacco Plains
necessary.
It was in the fall or 1873 that I
paid my lirst visit to the upper waters if Klk river. It was no easy-
task getting into the country, as
there was no vestige of trail, saw
those made by the Klk, until what is
now known as Michel Crook was
reached. My sole companion, .lohn
Collins, was a trapper and earn!
little (or prospecting, and as the
formation of the country, however
promising for cial, was very dis
couraging to the gold hunter, our
trip soon became a hunting and trap
ping expedition. Tbe water in the
river was low, and using the gravel
hars and sloughs, by crossing and re
crossing the river, we gut along fait
ly well with our four horses. We always camped about 3 o'clock, to
give time to set our beaver traps lie
fore night. Camping out in fine
weather and on a line stream like
Klk river is delightful M\ compati
ion was a good took ami liked It,
hut was hard to get out of bed in
the morning. 1 often returned irom
looking at the traps, or hunting up
the horses wet tii tbe skin with tin*

Hi. in alone, having no use for Uic
meat Passing tbe Iu t springs and
getting on to the plain.- m-ai Ihe
mouth of Michel Creek, I told Col
Hits I thought I had been there be
fore
I had in the sixties crossed ovei
the high range from White river, a
large tributary ol the Kootenay rh
ei, wilh Pete Boyle, who still lives
neai Port Steele We had no idea
thai the huge river we struck was
whal is now known us Klk rlvor, hut
supposed thai its course was east
We had prospected north towards the
head' of the river. After looking
round 1 found tho place where Roylo
uiid I had camped some years he
for:-.
Collins and I decided to follow up
Mulii-t Creek and after some days
travel through timber, were surprised
to lliul large trails that certainly
were not elk trails passing out towards the lake. We (ound the trees
covered with hufmlo hair and it was
evident to both of us that we had
passedthrough the Rocky Mountains
without going over any range.
Tnis certainly was the llrsl trip
ever made hy what is now known as
the Crows Nest Pass, t saw at
once the advantage ot a pass through
the great rocky range withoul a
mountain to go over and I determined lo work lor a trail.
Years, long years, have passed
since then and I never dreamed I
should live to see two great railway lines pass tin. ugh the valley of
the Klk river.
Collins and I determined to return
hy the    south hounsary pass, sooner
than work our way hack through the
timber, There was some risk uhoiit
II, as there was then no Port MacLeod and no Mounted Police. The
Bloods mid Illuekfeet ruled on tbe
plains east of the mountains uml
lliey Maljred all they came across
The hulTalo hertls were far otil on the
plains at that lime of,year and the
lllackfect would not be far from
them. We kepi well inside the Porcupine Hills ami along the Foothills
until we came to Kootenay Pass.
My next trip up the Klk river was
during the following summer: the
party consisted of Mr. Woods, owner
of the old Wild Horse Creek sawmill; Wtn. Sanders, Jim Morrissey,
the real old miner and myself. We
hail riding horses and six pack animals with provisions for the summer, our intention being to thoroughly explore and prospect that section
of the country. Getting up the Klk
river valley at high water was no
easy matter and we had some trail
making. Our first crossing of Klk
river al tlie point df rock south of
the present town of Morrissey gave
418 some idea of the difficulties before
Mr. Woods had had some experience rafting and took the bow;
as a good boat and canoe man 1 had
the stern. Steering a huge log raft
with over a KlfHI lbs. of stuff and
piled up with saddles and riggings is
no easy matter in tbe wild swift
waters of Klk river and we went
down stream nearly half a mile before I could make a landing on tbe
east side. The horses swam the
river well. We camped at Morrissey
Creek—here Jim Morrissey began to
growl and kept it up for most of the
jmmer. Mr. Woods and I explored
up the creek bringing out some of
the coal. We named the creek alter
Jim Morrissey, who naturally asked
if it was coal we were looking for.
Proceeding north, we travelled as
far as the next large creek; to this
we gave tlie name of Coal Creek
Here we camped several days in the
hope that the water would fall a
little Mr. Woods and I went up
the creek, the others remaining in
camp. Woods and I went over the
divide on foot to the Michel Creek
waters, hut could find nothing but
ct al and eoal everywhere. Returning
to eamp we decided to raft Klk rivei
again to prospect the creeks on, the
west side We gave the name of
l.i./ard Creek lo the first we explored after crossing, owing to a number
of little green liuards on a snow
slide near the head of the creek. Two
of us went on foot over to the
Hull River waters ami ft nnd iron
ore and a better gold countrt It
was not, however, until some years
later that I found gold in paying
inutilities on Hull River
Tbe whole country on the went
side . ( Elk river was full of elk
trails, but rain had set in and no one
Acred to go and hunt them, although wc wanted fresh meat I
started out with rifle one afternoon,
following one of the elk trails north,
a little south ol a creek we afterwards called Clear Creek. I came
ipou a great band ol elk at a lick,
the whole pla.c was trampled like   a
ttlc yard with trails going off in
every direction. There certainly
was not less ihaiv 100 animals standing round and switching (lies. They
wen- in their summer home quite unconscious ol my presence, and hut a
few miles Irom the present city ol
Fernie; every bIzc from the little call
to several pain of might] antlers all
in the velvet I would ever sooner
the living animal than the
slaughtered earcaae, but I knew they
would hardly look at it that way in
[-amp. so picked one that 1 thought
we could nearly get away with.
Alas' much of the meat was unavoidably wasted.
We spent many weeks up Klk river,
hut failing lo get out of the coal
formation wo turned hack and went
inwards ihc. headwaters of the Flathead river. On the Klk river we
lost all trace ol even colors ol gold
about five miles above where Klko
now is.
I spent one winter trapping marten
with Henry Kruse on Coal creek and
the mountain divides between it and
the waters of the Flathead river.
Financially the trip was a paying
one. It was not my first winter iin
the mountains, but it certainly was
the longest.
Those who dwell In cities know-
nothing of such a life, When in permanent camp and with a long line of
traps and getting plenty ol marten,
there is some excitement about it;
but when moving, and in temporary
eamp after a hard day's snowshoeing
witli a pack on one's back, it simply
means—days of toil, nights of 'inalterable misery, watching the stars or

Public Meeting to Discuss
Sewerage By-Law
To be Held Friday May 19th — Engineer Haddin will
be Present-Board of Trade Actively Interested
For Self-Denial Week
Salvation Army's Plea For Aid in Carrying on
Rescue Work
The board of trade, at its last regular meeting, devoted considerable
time to a discussion of the sewerage
bylaw, which is to he submitted lo
the ratepayers on May 22ml.
he general expression of opinion
of the board was, that as it was
largely due to their Initiative in the
matter that the city council had been
moved to place the sewerage bylaw
before the ratepayers, it was certainly up to them to do everything iu
their power to secure its passage 011
this occasion. II was freely admitted thai it was owing to apathy
on that lasi (occasion that the bylaw did not secure an adequate majority.
After a good deal of discussion of
best ways and means of securing this
end, it was decided to appoint a
committee of five to canvass the
citizens iu favor of the bylaw and to
work up a large attendance for tbe
public meeting lo be held Friday
evening, May 10th. The committee
appointed consists of Messrs. F. .1.
Deanc, W. F, Qurd, Ira Manning, Ed".
Elwoll and J. F. Huchcroft.
The public meeting to be held on
Fridav evening, May 10th, will Ihc
for the express purpose of providing
for a full and thorough discussion of
all matters hearing upon the proposed sewerage system, .lohn Haddin,
of the Gall Engineering company,
will Ih- in attendance, ami, as lie
says in his tetter accepting the invit-
tion to be present:
I will come prepared to explain
the proposed works, and to ttnswei
any questions that may he asked in
that connection."
A correspondent sends ns the following communication in reference to
this question, which will he found
entirely pertinent:
(Contributed).
Sewers and drains are of very early origin Among the ruins of
ancient civilisation arc found ihe remains of masonry and tiled conduits
const rut ted for drainage purposes.
Large masonry drains or sewers
were built by the ancient Assyrians
in the eighth or ninth century B. C.
In ancient Rome, wc still find the
Cloaca Maxima, or Great Sewer,
built in the seventh century II. C,
and still in use after a laps.- of 2,500
years Withoul this sewer, a large
tract of Ancient lit me could not be
Inhabited , In many other ancient
•ities the remains or Intelligently
planned systems have been discovered,
and it is evident that the ancients
paid gin-al attention to thisjnattcr
so vitally affecting health, With the
revival ol learning ami science in the
ouiteeiith or fifteenth centuries attention again came to he paid to
sanitary engineering Tn Kngland
modern sanitary engineering may almost he said to have its origin, bc
late as 1810, hut has had almost all
d its entire development since I Kf.il
The importance nnd value of the
(Constructions of sanitary engineering
can hardly be exaggerated; upon
them absolutely dedeml the healt.1i
d every city One need only read
the descriptions of the great modern
•pidemics. the yell, w fever at Mem
phis ami New Orleans, 01 of cholera
at Hamburg, or to have followed
closely the numerous recent outbreaks of typhoid to understand the
truth of the scripture:,"All thai a
man hath will he give for his life."
Vet not only can sanitary engineering
absolutely prevent every such epidemic, but, iu addition, ji would annually save,thousands upon thousands of other lives, which now suc-
0:1111b to bad sanitation.
One prominent sanitary engineer estimated from actual statistics that
as early as 1855 then- was a saving
from this cause of 100,000 lives and
2,000,000 cases of sickness annual!)
in Great Britain in Ihc total population of only 30,000,00(1. In many
individual cities statistics have
shown low death rates, tin- immediate lowering being due to the construction of sanitary improvements,
being more than sufficient iu money
value to the community t.> pay for
the entire cost. Tn this connection
H should be said that a pure watet
supply and good sewage ant both
essential, and that il is impossible
to separate the value of Ihe one
from that of the other. A polluted
water supply may spread disease no
matter how perfect tlie sewerage,
and an abundant water supply is essential to the proper working of the
sewers. On the other hand an abundant water supply selves as a vehicle
to enable unmentionable tilth to saturate more deeply ami more com
pletely the soil under the city.
Tlie cesspool is .1 receptacle fur receiving and restoring liquid sewage
It consists usually of an excavation
dug intti the ground, lined with
masonry, and covered, Into which
the sewerage from the house dis
charges. To prevent contamination
of the soil ami ground water, the
cesspool should he made absolutely
water-tight, and its contents should
be removed whenever it becomes
full.
The leaching cesspool is one not
made water tight; Ihe liquid contents partially leach away into the
surrounding soil or gravel strata or
crevices in the rock which may carry
contamination to great distances.
Owing to the offensive nature of the
work of cleaning out cesspools, and
to the expense thereof, cesspools as fl
usual thing are deliberately made not
water-tight. Tin- owner congratulates himself if he strikes a crevice
in the rock or gravel stratum, which
prevents his cesspool from filling up.
Leaching cesspools should bc absolutely prohibited by law; they are even
more dangerous than the privy, for
the liquid sewage in them .can penetrate farther through the surrounding soil. Among other systems of
sewerage disposal might he mentioned
the dry closet, tho pail system, and
the pneumatic system, the crematory
system and the water carriage system. These latter need not be taken up in detail at this time as none
of them are in existence in this city.
The water carriage system hns been
under discussion (or nearly two
years, and will be brought to an is
sue in the near future.
We now come face to face with tli
question, do we need sewers or not?
For some mini hei of years the sewerage in the city of Cranbrook has
been deposited in the ground, in tbe
majority of cases in leaching cesspools. Some few septic tanks have
been built, hut the outflow from
these devices is the essence of sewage, while only a heavy mineral mat
ler which is non-offensive in an)
way remains in the tank, li wil;
readily be seen thai during tbc
years of the existence of Cranbrook,
there has been un enormous am. tint
of sewage deposited under our city
When we stop to consider the fact
thai sewage is the chief means ol
spreading typhi id fever, smallpox,
measles, scarlet fever., diphtheria,
cholera morbus, consumption and
pneumonia, ami Will farther realize
that ono cubic centimeter of raw
sewage will contain from 500,000 to
,000,000 bacteria, we must realize
at once tbe deplorable condition of
our sanitary affairs. In several
places in Ihe city are septic tanks
and cesspools which are full to overflowing; the affluent of which Is
spreading around on top of the
ground, running down the lanes and
across properly belonging to others.
What would be the possible result
should a case of typhoid happen in
mo of these houses where these con
lift ions exist. Think ot the millions
of typhoid germs which would be dis
tributed to be blown about by the
air and one small fly without any
trouble whatever would bring several
millions of them Into your bouse and
distribute them over your butter-
plate. Will this not be an ideal
state of affairs when the weather becomes warmer and the fly more numerous?
Some little time ago when the
city water department was'making n
water connection on one id our principal streets water was struck at a
depth of about 3| feet, which was so
offensive that the men very nearly declined to complete the work. On
Armstrong avenue water is reached
at between three or four feet; the
same may be said ol Norbury ami
Fenwick avenues. There can be
little doubt in any Intelligent mind
but that this ground water is thoroughly charged with sewage, which
when properly exposed, might place
in our midst an epidemic from which
the town would never recover. Cellars into which this w.ater seeps and
stands at times, are utterly unlit for
habitation. Many persons will tell
you that their cellars wen- absolutely dry until!- the watei supplj *vi
tcm was installed. We have little
doubt as lo the veracity ol this
statement and we are not surprised
thai their cellars are beginning to
till up with water, when we stop to
consider that nearly 2,000,000 gal
Ions of water arc deposited every
twenty-four hours upon this s
lownsite. The water underlying the
city must necessarily rise, as the
soil becomes contaminated, and it
will continue to do so until some
means are adopted lo carry away el
(lcicntly this daily consumpth n of
the water works system.
That indomitable leader of men.

We    stalled   above   (lie falls near
Slko with a dug-out canoe on December 1 Our dug-out was large
enough to have taken all our supplies, but it was made out o( green
eottonwood,ami we only managed to
get It about twelve miles up the
river. Wc then packed forward on
our hacks, making repeated trips,
until we had all our stuff a few
miles up Coal Creek. Here we made
a cache. It was the middle of April
before we got home again. We got
beaver, marten, otter, wolverine and
fox during the winter in sufficient
quantities to give fair returns for
our time and labor.
The summer following I tried hard
to get the B. C. government to make
a trail up Klk river and through the
range. The Mounted Police bad
come into the Northwest through ( .
S. territory and established themselves at Fort McLeotl We were anxious to get a market for cattle, as
the mines al Wild Horse bad gone
down to a low ebb. Thanks lo
Mr. H. 1. T. (lalbraith, who was
then our member for Kootenay, the
provincial government voted a small
suns to define tbe trail.    1 had    be-
fore sent Dr. Pawsnn a sample of
(he coal and a rough pen sketch of
the Klk river and tho Pass. This
sketch he made use of in his book
using the names 1 put down, and
some of which si ill remain, as Coal
Creek, Morrissey Creek, etc. Ii was
some time before ant thing was done.
ns Mr. William Fernie, the gold commissioner, opposed the mailer, saying the Indians saj there was no
such pass and that there was no use
wasting money. 1, however, in company with a Mr Itiilgeway, blazed
the road through ami tlie trail was
made.
I'niil the opening up of the main
line of the Canadian Pacific, it was
during the summer months one of
tbe most used trails iu the country,
hands of horses, and cattle going over
from even as far away as Kn 111 loops.

Editor The Cranbrook Herald:
Sir: I want lo avail myself of this
opportunity to publicly express my
appreciation of the manner in which
the citi/ens nl Cmnbrook supported
the production lo local talent of
"The    (Ituha,"   and the encourage
metit received, nol only by attend
once, but by applause and generous
praise, is a source of great pleasure
ami satisfaction Every member ol
the organization,  from the least   to
the greatest, deserves great ciedit
for the manner in which they ac
quitted themselves, and my warmest
and sincere thanks are doc them, as
without their kindly support ami
whole-hearted interest, success would
not have been attained Kadi member nf the orchestra is also entitled
to my warm thanks and appreciation, as they played no small part
and their co-operation and assistance
added greatly lo the musical (harms
of the production.
In conclusion, I hope thai this attempt is only a forerunner of greater
things to he accomplished in the future, and that Crai&took will reap a
decided benefit, and iu giving utterance to these sentiments, 1 know
full well that every member of    the
Craubrook Operatic BOClet) will sin

I (Continued ou  \m-y eight) THK   CRANBROOK   IIKRALO
IN THE COURT OF APPEAL
JUDGMENT OF THK HON. CHIEF
JUSTICE MACDONALD.
Krzus vs. C. N. P. Coal Co.
This is an appeal from the decision
of Clement .1. in respondent's favor
iu answer to thu following question
submitted lo niiu by an arbitrator
under the Workmen's Compensation
Act, 1003. That statute provides
that "If in any employment t
which this Act applies, personal injury by accident arising out of, and
in ?he course of his employment li
caused to a workman, his employe!
shall, subject as hereinafter mentioned, lie liable to pay compensation in
accordance with the first schedule to
this Act." That schedule provides
for compensation to the workman I'm
injury where death does not result,
and also provides that if the workman leaves any dependents, solely or
partially dependent upon his earnings
al the time of his death, those dc
pemleiits shall he entitled to compensation.
Nit reasons for judgment were, glv
en, but as the learned judge cited
Varesick vs. B. C. Copper Co
12 B. C. 280, we may assume thai
the reasons given there were his reasons lor judgment in this case. With
the exception of the Varesick case,
we have been referred to no author
ity directly in,point. Our attention
was called, however, to the cast- of
llaird vs. Biis/lan 11100 K F. Id
(Court of Sessions) from which il
appears that an alien dependent re
siding abroad was awarded compeusa
tion, hut it was pointed tut, and il
appears to he true thai the question
we have to consider now is not rais
ed in that case. Doubtless there
have been many cases of that sort
but they are of no assistance to in
here. The ipiestion therefore, I
think, must be decided on the cm
strut-tit n of the statute, hearing ii
mind the rule laid down by Maxwell
on (he Interpretation of Statutes,
and referred to with approval in
Tomalln vs. Pearson 1000, 2 K.B.D-
ill: that iu the absence of an Intention clearly expressed or to he infer
red from its language, or from the
object or subject made, or history ol
tbe argument, the prescumptlon thai
parliament does nol design its slat
utes to operate heyoml the territorial
limits of the United Kingdom. This
seems to follow generally what was
said in Jeffries vs. Ilooscy I II. I.
Cas. 81.1, where the principles which
ought to be attended to iu ascertaining tbe scope id acts of parliament
were very fully considered by the
House of Lords which decided that
ease after submitting questions to the
Judges, i'urk B. one of tho judges,
stated tbe rule thus: "When pallia
merits legislate for the benefit td
persons prima facie they must he
considered to mean the bem-lil ol
those who, owe obedience to them,
and whose interests they are under a
co-relative obligation to protect."
and Jarvis C. J. in tlie same cast-
said: "No duty can Ih- imposed upon
aliens resilient abroad and Ihe legislature of this country is not concerned either to protect their inter
eats, or to control their rights."
After bearing the opinions of the
judges, the House of Lords gave Judgment in thai ease unanimously in
favor of excluding from the opera
lion of the statute there in question
(the Copyright Act 8 Ann.) aliens re
.suit-lit abroad for reasons practical!)
identical with those cited above.
Cranworth L. C. page UT, said! "Tin-
object of giving that privilege (copyright) must he taken to bate been a
national object and the privileged
class to be ionim.il to a portion of
the community for tin- general advantage td which, the argument was
made."
On the other hand Davidson vs.
Hill 7U L IK.lt 788, a decision tin
der tbe Fatal Accidents Act was relied upon by the respondent's counsel
as authority (or their contention
that the heiielit of an Act such as
tbe Workmen's Compensation Act
ought to tie held to extend to alien
dependents resided I abroad I think a
distinct ion must Ih- drawn between
the former Act and the Act now uml
er consideration. The former was
intended to remedy an injustice b)
enabling dependents to obtain com
petisation for a wrong done to the
deceased which, hy common law they
were denied. Here the cases differ—
an obligation founded on no wrong
ful act is Imposed upon the employer
on what I venture to think are considerations of public policy. The
Workmen's Conpchtatlon Act is in
its nature domestic or municipal ami
it may bc regarded as a shifting id
what oflt might call (though strict 1J
not one) a duly, namely to provide
for the destitute irom the state, to
the employer. This province owes
nr sudi obligation to aliens abroad.
These could not become a burden upon the state or upon private charity
in the state. Hence I think no intent might to he Interred to impose
obligation on employers beyond that
essential to accomplish what would
appear to he the legislature's intention; or to put it in another way,
that the ifrncral words used in ihc
Act relied upon as Including foreign
dependents, must he construed hy reference to what the legislature may
fairly and reasonably he considered
to have had in contemplation
As against this view of the statute
there is the one based upon Ihe no
lion that the Ait holds out lo every
milkman    who aciepls     eioptovmehl
within the province, a promise that
in case of his death iu, such cmploj
meni by accident, the employer shall
he compelled to compensate his dependents. This, I think, is based
upon the idea that Ihe dependents derive their rights from or through
the deceased workman, bill, as point
cd out In Tomalin vs. Pearson supra,
the heiielit conferred hy this attitude,
is not founded upon contract nl all,
but arises out of statutory duty imposed for the heiielit of dependents.
II is a benefit conferred directly upon dependents.
But all this brings us back again
to the question 'what was the Intention of the legislature?' Suppose il
had thought fit to provide stale iu
siirame for the henelil of workmen
and their dependents iu Ihe broad
terms employed in this Act, would
not the fair inference he I lull il
intended no more than lo heiielit
those who were actually within its
jurisdiction; those who owed duly to
its laws and to whom it is reasonable to suppose it might think il
owed a duty lo make provision for.
The Act in substance does effect
state insurance, To say as Clement
.1. said on the authority of Lord
Macmii.ghten iu Kenton vs. Thorlcy
72 L.J.K.B. 7*7, thai the basic idea
of the Act iu accident insurance for
the workman, seems to me to strengthen the employer's case. I cannot,
however, agree with what appears to
he his view that we can apply t<>
this case the person applicable to in
siirance effected by contract. Il was
argued for the respondent, relying on
Davidson vs. Ihn supra thai the ne
cident having happened in this province, had death not ensued, the work
man could have claimed compeusa
tion. Therefore the reasoiui for the
decision in that case apply here but
as I read Davidson vs. Hill, tin
questions there relied upon, do nol
enter into this ease at all. Kennedy
J., page 2!>2, said: "The basis of Hie
plan to which the Fatal Accidents
Ad gives statutory authority is neg
ligeiice causing an injury and that is
a wrong which I believe the law ol
every civilized country treats as an
actionable wrong." And again:
"Nevertheless as I venture to think
It is true to say that in substance
I tie purpose ami effect of the legisla
lure is to extend the area td repaia
tion for a wrong which all civili/ed
nations treat as an actionable
wrong." I am convinced that alien
dependents, resident abroad, arc not
within the purview of tlie Workmen's Compensation Act. There is
very little internal evidence ol the
legislature's intention in this lu-hali
to he found iu Hie Act, but I think
thai section H of the second schedule
furnishes some, although perhaps oil
ly slight evidence that those who
enacted this legislation never bad iu
contcmolation as a person entitled
to tn- awarded compensation, anyone
other than a resident of the province.
I would allow the appeal.

JUDGE IRVING DISSENTS.
I have readied a dillereiit conclu
sion. During the period that Lord
Collins sat iu the court of ap|H-al as
master ol Ihe rolls (1001-1007) a
number of decisions wire given iu
which this Act was construed in the
way most heiieiiri.il for the claim
ants for compensation, e.g.: Darling
ton vs. Roscoe, t-007 1 KB. 231: We
limi that tbe legislation appears to
have ml ended to simplify mailers as
much as possible so as to avoid con
sideration which might involve Hie
claimants in the making of elaborate
calculations and that the right to
the compensation%oney descends to
the personal representative of ihe
dependent without having made a
claim; United Collieries I Will A c
TH.'t: A postbuuious. Illegitimate
child has been held to be a dependent
of an injured man within llu- mean
ing of the Act; Schoftcld vs Orell

A   C.  2 I''   These decisions hate been
endorsed by the House ol Lords   as
being BOUnd.      See  Hodgson  vs.  West
Stanley Collieries 1010 A. C. Ml
ami from them It,would seem that
the spirit of the Act is u liberal ami
hi-iicftcient one;, and see also Keeling
vs. Mom-ton 1911 I KB 200; Whether a person is or is nol dependent is
a pure question of fact Irrespective
of legal responsibility—the only prescribed limit is that td kinship. This
tho arbitrator decides as a qu-Ht'on
of tact.
Compare Coiiybnrc vs. London 1

L..I.C.IV .117
II is settled by authority 1000 2
K It. I..") that the accident must be
om- happening within Ihe jurisdiction
to one there who has Ihe status ol a
w. rkrnan lo some employer who is
made liable to the jurisdiction of
this Act. The principal on which
that decision is grounded is
the presumption that parliament did
mil design lis statue to operate l»
tout) Its territorial limits That
principal si-ems to lie correct beyond
question,   but it   docs not, to      mv
mind, necessarily cover the case wo
have under consideration.    So fnr as
I can sec, the fact that llu- workman
injured, was an alien, while that the
claimants, if residents; are aliens,
does not touch the question. An
alien within the realm enjoys the
general protection of the King which
extends particularly to all the
King's loyal subjects.
Then the appeal must succeed if it
is to succeed at all, because the
dependents are not residents of this
province, the result would be the
same if the workman injured, was
a In isc II a resident British subject and
bus dependents living in Alberta.
The Act was passed lor the benefit
of the person injured. See the title
ol the Act.     Salmon, vs. Duncombo
II AC. al 03-1! The compensation Is
to him tor injuries to him received
when in the course of Ids employ
mini. The employer is liable as
soon as the accident happens and the
dependents1 claims created but for
which the puipijses of this Act only
come, not where death results fi'tun
the injury.
The rights of Ihe dependents are
Identified with the rights of the in
jutcd man. If he lives, they have
mine; tlie money is payable to him
wiili compensation; if he dies, a
status is given to them irrespective
of any will or testimony. If those
who are in lad dependent upon him,
whether legally or otherwise are not
compensated will not his estate sillier' The compensation which lie
was earning or has earned by his
injuries has vanished. It seems to me
that if we regard the compensation
as an asset ol the injured man, we
escape the extra-territorial argument as parliament has iu effect taken the administration of that part of
Hie Injured mans' estate out of the
bumls of the executors or administrators ami given il to a new tribune
lo which it has given parental aiilh
ority.
I am of Ihc opinion that Mr. Jus
lice Clement has read the Act iu the
way it was Intended tit be read, and
having regard to tbe fact that our
legislature must be aware that a
large number of British subjects as
well as aliens work in tlie mines, I
feel that he has not unduly strained
the Act iu bidding it confers on the
nori resident dependent, a status to
demand that which the workman if
alive, would give them.

ADA-SOME OBSERVATIONS
BY FKA    ELBE DTI S
The Olivers have recently bought
a large tract ot land al Hamilton,
Ontario, for factory purposes. This
land is traversed hy the Grand Trunk
railroad and it also borders on . the
lake front, so deep-water vessels can
load and unload right at tbe Oliver
docks. The first investment for
land, dockage, buildings and machinery is over a million dollars.
This, however, is only a beginning
lb-fore they get lo shipping plows
the investment (or materials will
climb up, and in five years, at
guess, I would say the Olivers will
have twenty-five million dollars Invested in Canada—and then some.
Ibis plant of tlie Olivers at Hamilton, Ontario, will not only Ih- Hie
largest plow plant in Canada but the
largest in   tbe British empire.
This Oliver expansion means that
i hey will build up and maintain a
population equal to a city of twenty-
lit e thousand people, wh'ch in twenty years will be a city ot fifty thousand people. And this city your
Inch- Samuel has lost, very much as
George the Third lost the Colonics.
The tendency of trade is toward
decentralization. A big factory gets
no big that when il is enlarged, il
must he ettlaiged as a unit; that is,
an entire new plant mutt be bu I It-
duplicating the first.
And when you build a new plant

before.

at South Bend Hut is ample tit cantor the new works as well us, the
old. They also own a thousand
acres id land, adjoining their present
site. Yet they choose Canada for
the new works, all for reasons eminently sound and safe.
The words "repudiation" nnd "degeneration" in the Dominion are not
known. There good old Scotch virtues prevail — Canada is coming,
not going.
Canada has one-tenth of the population which we have; but she has an
available farming district fully ns
large as ours.
Canada needs plows. She has the
money lo buy Hie best. But she
can't buy South Bend plows, because
there is a t a riff on goods carried Into
Canada fmm the Slates that Is prohibitive.

ecssnr. After all chief credit foi ihe
really excellent prndiu;tinii nf the
Goisbn lasl week is due in Mr. Ingram, whose iinwearii'd elTorts were
amply rewarded by the splendid response nf every member of the company.
it is usually distinctly an Invidious
task tti criticise amateur productions, liul on this occasion, where,
without exception, all did so well
and practically every detail nf stage
management was so excellent, the
reviewer's task is lightened and he
hits hut tn keep a tight rein nn superlatives.
Chief honors may fairly bc said to
have been divided bet ween Mrs. E.
Patersnii, "O Mimosa Ran," and
Miss V. Henley, "Miss Molly 'Sea-
more." Both of these ladies delighted everyone present by ihc
charm and ease uf their respective
performances. Mrs. Paterson, is well
known locally as a vocalist of quite
except iotial merit, and that slie
should have tilled her part admirably
occasioned no special surprise. On
the other hand, Miss llenlev appeared,
for the lirst time before a C'ranbrook
audience and doubts had been expressed as to tier ability to fill an
difficult a part as thai of "Molly
Seainiiie" acceptably. Miss Henley
certainly proved the surprise package
nf the evening. Her singing was iu
every respect delightful and her act-
in-; would have put many an experienced actress to the blush.
Mrs. V. Douehanl as "Juliette"
san-; and acted Ailh a pitpiaiic> that
completely captured her audience
Miss Margaret Kennedy, as "Tommy
Stanley" made a natty little mid-
shipmiie, It. T. Brymncr filled the
male star role, as "Reginald l-'air-
fax" admirably, his singing and acting were both all io the good U, A
Macdonald carried of! the heavy role,
Unit of "Marquis tmari," iu the
very best style, ami fairly brought
down the house, when, al the close
nf the rust act, he carried off "Mollj

comic opera is always tbe most tiv
ing and this is particularly tho ease
in the Geisha ••Wun-hi," tbe Chin
esc proprlctOI  tif ihe  lea house,     has
to provide the larger proportion ol
the laughs and Vrxhlo Raworth, who
lilted this exacting role, overlooked
no opportunllj  ot adding tn the gen
era! merriment His performance
throughout was extremely clever,
and well balanced V llray's "Cap
lain Katana" was well sustained and
his rendering ol "Pearl ol the Had

The work of llu- chorus all through
was away above the amag* ol

Ingram foi all the time ami hard
work given to the production. He has
shown very conclusively that Cranbrook is rich in musical nnd artistic
talent and iu ?hc days to come Cranbrook music lovers can look forward
to other productions of even greater
merit.

AUSTRALIA'S NAVAL PLANS
FIFTY-TWO   SHIPS    IN TWENTY
TWO   YEARS—£S8,60<1,(H)0
SCHEME.
Admiral Sir Reginald Henderson,
who has relumed   m England   from
tUSttaliO  nil   the  .-un. IllM.'ll    nf      his
mission 10 prepare an Australian
naval defence scheme, has disch Bed
particulars ol Irs project to Router's
representative
The scheme covers a period ni
twenty-two years, provides lor a
tleei nl BUy-two vessels, 16,000 men,
ami expenditure mi docks ami stores,
the   whole being estimated   in  cost
rss.'ai,,,	
The population "I Australia, which
1. 1,. ii.-.tt this heavy naval expenditure was litimated at unly 1,37-1,138
in mm'
••The greal obicci 1 have tried to
achieve," said the admiral, "is that
Australia, hitherto dopqndonl nn the
British navy, should in future he in a
position m defend  herself, ami by so
doing hear   hei   shale nf the Imperial
burden.
1 hold thai an enemy threatening
am pan nf the omplro Is an enemy
tn Australia, thus strongly emphasising tin- paramount necessity nf
combining with the Imperial navy in
time of war. for ii inn command of
the sea is threatened, then Australia
or nnv olliel part "f the empire is
menaced, ami is liable to he drawn
ml,, Ihe struggle
"The    primary ohjeel   nf an Aim
tiali.m nan. therefore, si Id he Hie
Immediate supporl nl tbe rest ol lho
empire's naval forces—In tact, imperial navy combination lo maintain
and fight fin. if ever threatened, Ihe
command ni ihe sea, while ihe see
miliary ohpvt "f commonwealth naval defence should be lo detend Australian coasts ami protect ports
and shipping Irom raids and Incursions. II ihe scheme I have prepared
is  carried   mil these objects  will, I
believe,  be 11111 mpllshcd."
Referring to lho main heads ot his
peoject, Admiral Henderson said:
"The complete scheme covers a period ol twenty-two years, and is based
upon the population unit commerce of
tbe Commonwealth iu comparison
with the rest of Ihe empire. It provides lor a Ibs't ol fltty-two vessels,
rusting about £28,000,000, a personnel ol some 15,0(10 men, 1111 expenditure of £17,000,000 on docks nnd
stores, the grand total uf projected
expenditure  amounting  in £88,1100,-

Willi regard lo Hie construction ill
the ships, Admiral Henderson said:

EDITORIAL NOTES
Tim lust inuiiht'L ut tho Canada
Lumberman contains a strong editorial on tho "Dumping Evil Growing
(in-attT." This Journal's view ol
the situation, wldcli may lie accepted
us authoritative, presents a very
strong ease fur government Intervention, by tbe Immediate application ot
tho "Anti-Dumping Clause." Tho
following facts, cited bj the Canada
Lumberman, ought to prompt tho
government to immediate ami eltec-
live action:
"Take as an example, tho Manitoba
markets. At Winnipeg, lumber from
eastern and western Canada comes
Into competition with that from tbc
western ami central States. Today
lite manufacturers <»f eastern and
western Canada arc quoting prices
which would cnablo them to conduct
business at a small profli only, There
is greal expansion under way in tho
prairie provinces nf Canada, anil tho
amount of lumber which will be sold
there Ihli yeni will !»■ enormous.
Tbr opportunity i< i United states
firms iti work nn some of lho surplus
stuck which they continually manufacture is a tempting one, and they
aro offering lumber today in those
markets at figures which would mean
ruin to an) Canadian (Inn which sol
tan tn niM-i tin- competition, Washington mills which arc selling lit at
Winnipeg today nre doing so without
any fixed price list. Il is simply a
cose tu* getting tin- order by book or
crook un matter how   low the price.
"There ore surplus slocks to he
worked ofl In Washington and they
iniisl he gol lid of at any price, because ihe continued holding of them
in the Washington yards cost money.
The loss of profit for the lime being
enables the mills to avoid ihe greater loss nf Hie same profli with the
cost or keeping the lumber added.
"The United Stales lumber industry is so enormous in Ms proportlt ns
ami sn hailh organized withal.
spite nf ihe flourishing condition nf
all the lumbei associations, that nt
all limes ol year there Is sun- to bo
extensive ovei production in many
sections nf the country. Canada has
been made the stamping ground for
all such manufacturers ami Canadian
producers of lumber haw- learned
ihai, m calculating upon their prospects, they must at all times lake
Into consideration this feature of
trade. So variable, In fact, arc the
prices quoted hy United Stales linns
tit Canadian markets, that if one
were in set nut tu strike an averagp
price, as representing tho cost i<» the
ennsumcrnf United Slates lumber oi
the prairies today, it would be at
impi ssibiliiy
Tin- result nl all this is demornt
Uing, There Is an active demand
for lumber today, hut as fur as ('a
it.nh.in mills are concerned they an
practically forced out of any lerri
lory which the United stales mills
enter Wbi cannot the anti-dumping
regulation be put into force against
United states lumber so that com-
tpetltton in Canadian markets may be
based nuly mi the legitimate grounds
tif cost ami quality?"
It seems unreasonable thai there
should be any need to emphasize the
necessity n( passim,; ihe BCWeroge
bylaw illicit next presented to the
ratepayers nn May 22nd, and yet,
we are Informed, thai there will be
active hostility In Ihe passage of
litis very necessary measure. We can
but hope that our informants have
wrongly slaed up the situation. The
menace nf utisauitaiy conditions is
too serious to ei ncelve, for one moment, that citizens actuated by a
desire tu serve the brsl interests of
the city, WOUld allow any side issue
to influence them to place any obstacle in the way of the securing, at
the earliest possible dale, nf a satis
factory  sewerane system.
As announced elsewhere in this issue a Special public meeting will he
held un Friday evening, May t'Mh,
at the Rdlson theatre, to discuss tin-
bylaw, in all its phases At tins
meeting, Mr John Haddin, thief engineer of ihe Oalt Engineering com*
p.my, will he present, at tho request
of the city council, to atiswei any
and all questions and lu throw such
light nn the subject as ratepayers
may request. In his response In the
City clerk's letter, Mr. Haddin says:
"I will come prepared to explain the
proposed works, and to answer any
questions thai may he asked in that
connection/1
The original report submitted by
ihe Oalt Engineering company on the
prospective cost nf the proposed sewerage works, estimated the total expenditure al 194,078.00, This total,
we are Informed, includes engineering
fees, and we arc furl her informed
that ihe Halt Engineering company
would undertake to Install tne plant
nt the figures mentioned We men
tion this fact ns it has been rumored thai the work could not be done
for the amount specified, At the public Hireling it will  he upru to those.

Mr. Haddin his views on the subject.
Tills public meeting, lo be held a
week from tomorrow evening, should
be largely attended, particularly by
those, who for one cause or another,
are inclined to oppose the passage
of the bylaw. The city's health
is menaced by the perpetuation ol
existing conditions, and no fair-
minded man will lake a step so detrimental to the welfare of every re
sitleiil in the city, without frankly
proclaiming nis grounOs for so doing.
This surely is a quest inn upon which
il should he possible It scenic unit
•il action and, we believe, such action can be secured, if ratepayers
will sink all personal and factional
feeling and be governed solely by the
best interests of the city.
According lo Ottawa reports Hon.
It. I.. Borden, the Ti ry chieftain,
is not going to visit British Columbia' on bis western tour, lie has
been assured by Promlcr McBrtdo and
Attorney-General Dowser (hat this
province is safe for a solid Tory
llngcnt whenever tho general elections take place, so that there is no
need for him to waste time over us.
ihir Tory friends do not appear in
realize that the next general election will he fuught nut ou a great
principle, instead of simply on the
question of ins ami outs. Reciprocity will be the big issue, and we
imagine the Ti lies will find they
nave been counting their chickens before they were hatched.
Attention is directed to the Judgment   of the   appeal court, published
laewhere In this issue, dealing with
ihe question   of    tho  Interests    of
liens in the Workmen's Compensation Act.     This judgment will repay
archil perusal. The finding is ol
very great interest to all classes ol
labor, particularly railroad men,   the
datives of whom may reside out
side of this province.    It is Batlsfac-
nn in know that the case is tu he
further appealed. Mr. Eckstein has
applied lor leave to appeal direct to
the privy council.

CHILDHOOD'S OPPORTUNITY,
No greater encouragement to thrift
bus ever been presented to any country than is offered to the people uf
Canada under the provisions of the
Canadian Government Annuities Act,
which was unanimously passed by
both houses of parliament hi 1008.
While any resident of Canada may
purchase, Ihc Act was devised chietly
to enable wage-earners and others
with limited income to make absolutely safe provision for the closing
years of life iu a way that would
he Impossible to make under any
other conditions available. For example, a mechanic, whose weekly
wage is hut a little larger than his
weekly expenditure, Is, by paying
'Mm a week, purchasing annuities for
his two buys aged 5 ami 7, Ihe annuities In become payable at llfl. From
that lime as long as they live a
yearly income of $517.71! and $407,7-8
respectively will he paid them by tho
government. If they die before they
are IH), the money paid in will he
refunded io their heirs together with
:. per cent compound Interest. So
lhai for a total of M.WW to he paid
in un income combined of $1,015.5-1,
or greater than the income to be
derived from an investment of
$20,000 at 5 per cent would he
ceived. The one thing is feasible for
a man even with n very limited
wage, while the other would he quite
impossible for him. Taking advantage uf the low rate to be obtained
when the children are young is what
parents should aim at—the children
in iihl carry the payments themselves;
as goon as they arc able.
What a payment of 2f> cents or *>U
cents u week would purchase at any
age may lie ascertained upon application to S. T. Hasted", Superintendent of Canadian Government Annuities, Ottawa, to whom letters go free
td postage.

"Docs the bride have to come to

"She has lo come here and sign

Tlie bridegroom had ut l counted on
such a contingency, and was beginning In take the matter very seriously. At last, with desperation in his

John W. Writ it's nomination ns

is a matter for congratulation. Mr.
Weart is a seasoned public man, un
experienced politician uml a man with

The  inntlnii of Mr. Weart is   a
further indication nl the awakening
of the LI lie ml parly iu ibis provlnca
which was commented' upon Inst

men    id  (be      calibre of    Mr.    Weill I

Vancouver will be equally us fortun
ale iu the selection nl a strong man
ns Westminster has been.
There is not ai present Hie same
encouragement in ihe Bltuatlon in
Vancouver as Mr. Wcarl's nomination in Weslwuiinsier Indicates in
ilial riding, There Is need in Vancouver lor ihe progressive element in
Ihc Liberal party tn bestir themselves and see to it thai Hie organization of lite parly does tint fall
Into the bands nf those who regard
a parly organization simply us an
Instrument nf private opportunity.
No party can prosper when it is cut
up Into cliques. When clique rule
ami holc-fn-thc-corncr tactics develop
Hie end nf effective organization is in
sight, -lust now something nf the
kind seems to bc going nn in Vancouver, though truth in tell, there is
little more tYban street gnsslp In
confirm that opinion. At ono time
we hear nf a new parly being formed
with Mayor Taylor at the head of it
and others Who have been prominent
Liberals mentioned as being associated with him. Mayor Taylor has un
more than one occasion publicly referred tn the lightness uf (he bonds
nf his allegiance tu tlie Liberal or
any party. At Ihe same time men
prominent in his organization are also very active in the ward organizations <d tbe Liberal party.
It is highly desirable if any effective opposition that will provide a
check nn the McBrlde government i1-
tn be deveh ped that the Liberal
party, especially in Vancouver,
sluiiilil lie a cohesive and harmonious
organization, Mayor Taylor, by the
prestige which he has achieved in two
municipal elections and by tin- poa
session td an Influential news A paper,
is in a splendid   position tu promote
the conditions Which will lead tn Iht
success id the Liberal party in this
province. According in bis oppoi
(unity is Mr, Taylor's responsibility
proportioned. His opportunity is to
unite ami harmonize the party. If
instead nf using it be leaves tlie
party and starts nil mi a lay nf his
own with his nun aggrandlRcmcni

down thai the only hope for an elTec-

important that public attention

ZAM-BUK CURES PILES.
Head What   Those Who Have Proved
It Say.
Mr. Thomas Pearson, of prince Albert, Snsk., writes: "I must thank
you for the benefit I received from
Zam-Buk. Last summer I Buffered
greatly from piles. 1 started to use
'/.am link ami found it gave me relief, so I continued it and after using
three or four boxes I am pleased to
say that il has effected a complolo
cure."
Mr, a, A, Dufrosne, ol 188-185 St.
Joseph street, St. Bach, Queboc, P,
Q., wrlles; "l can highly recommend
/.am link to everyone who suffers
from piles. I have also found il
it elTecllve iu curing a sore thumb
wilb which my Ml Me sou was s'-ller-
iug. The l.humli hud begun tn swell
and fester and bad Inst the nail. I
persevered in tbe application or Zim-
link and the sore Is now entirely
healed."
Not only for   piles, but fur Inflnm-
I sores, ulcers, eczema, ringworm,
bolls, eruptions, scalp sores, itch,
children's sure heads, nld wounds,
etc., /.nm-ltiik is without equal as a

cial convention could be greatly facilitated. The logical candidate for
Vancouver would seem to me to bo
V. ('. Wade, K.C., who pat up such a
splendid fight in the last local elections, Mr, Wade is a man of outstanding ability, keenly aggressive in
public spirit, able and willing to give
his time to the public service and in
every way qualified to represent Vancouver in the commons. No doubt
there are other prominent Liberals in
Vancouver who would make good parliamentary timber but a careful canvas nf the possibilities invariably Indicates Mr. Wade as the logical
choice.

Some housewives, harrassed to

to the " buying" problem. They
buy when they HAVE TO —

when, very likely, better values
and lower prices are advertised by
three or four different stores. The
housewife who does not give as

**********************!***************,******* THE  OENBROOK  HERALD
FOR SELF-DENIAL WEEK
(Continued from page one)
ish innocence, dare we Intrude the
nature of our mission? But alas!
again and again the painltil truth
forced itself upon our unwilling
minds ami hearts that here also was
the taint of evil.
The biting blast blinded our smarting eyes, Our faces and lingers
tingled. We jostled against two
figures. One a girl of eighteen, wit))
a plguant face, and, to the close observer, an expression ol a frightened
fawn in the large dark eyes. The
other tall and womanly, had her
head bent and her arm linked in the
younger girls's. Tenderness spoke
in her attitude and voice.
"You can be pure again," she was
saying. "Me? no never! Three
weeks—my Gotll what an eternal
three weeks— I've been on the streets.
Oh, I never realized tho frightful
cost! Oh, I'm so weary of il all "
The slim form shuddered. "Take me
away—anywhere."
She was among those conveyed lat
er to the waiting welcome of an
Army in me.
"Sister, I've been trying lo lind
you ever since Mrs. Booth's midnight meeting a month ago. Do you
remember me?"
The officer whose arm had been
grasped considered. "Yes, 1 do.
You're the girl 1 urged to come
away from this life altogether. Von
refused."
"1 did. But I couldn't lorgot. 1
went back to Lady — and, well,
the result is I'm taken Into her service again."
By half past twelve the guests
"compelled in from the highways"
had taken their seats at the lung
(ables daintily spread with templing
viands and adorned with spring How-
era.
Mrs. Booth told them id the ever-
Increasing difficulty she fell iu addressing them, because, owing tn the
intensity of her deep interest, she
had learned in "care" as though they
were her own daughters. The mother
in her eyes and voice as she warned
them of the danger uf a sinful ami
unnatural life bad a wonderful effect.
"They needn't think they'll makt
me blubber," exclaimed a voice. The
words were accompanied by a hy
sterieal laugh that sounded as though
the tears were not far ofi.
"Down under the smiles is a heart
that is unsatisfied," was a statement
that the instant response in every
heart present proved only too true.
It could not he gainsaid.
Commissi oner Cox read a Bible
story that brought visions id an
InuiH-ent past lo many a since stained beari, a.s did Mrs. StaiT-Captaiu
Mitchell's singing of such appealing
songs as "There is a green hill far
away!"
And the results? They were not
alone represented in the little company that, resolved to start a new
life, rode away al daybreak.
Impressions ol the mldnught meeting! They are almost too many and
varied to indicate within the spact
available (writes Mrs Brigadier Car
neater),
As I passed out into Ihe cold of
tbe bitter night the question arose
Why do Salvationists the world over
persist in labors of this kind'! Kor I
had seen identical efforts put forth,
with identical results, in other
lauds. The answer in part came iu
a sight unseen hy the guests in that
supper room. It was tbe kneeling
figure of Mrs. Booth as Commissioner Cox reatl a brief Bible portion.
Her heart manifestly moved, tears
coursed down her saddened fate as
she prayed; and as, later, in tender
voice, she pleaded with those hapless
sisters nt the night, it was divine
love manifested through a human
heart.
My mind instinctively turned to
another sight which I hail witnessed
a few hours previously. Out on the
cheerless street was a compact little
woman, one ol fifty engaged in that
blesnsed work. All unconsciously
she summed up tbc different women
she met. To one she spoke u passing word; on another she hud a detaining hand, another she followed
into a side street, and wilh glowing
smile returned a few minutes later,
her arm linked into tnat of the
girl she had won A discoverer nf
diamonds could not look more jubilant than this Army lass as she made
ne" way to the meeting-place,
Daily faith in and contact with the
Man of Sorrows keeps the spirits of
these devoted toilers strong and lender, so that they unite with Him iu
serking the lost Oil they are borne
In arms nf love to havens of refuge.
Addressing a company of friends
and supporters, gathered in the
double room of the recently completed annex to our large home at
Cneetham Hill, the Lord Mayor of
Manchester. Mr. Charles Behrcns,
said he had desired to he present because of his great respect for the
general. Whatever he undertook,
tbe Army's leader did with such
heartiness and such success that they
should all help him to the best of
their ability. It had. been the lord
mayor's privilege, a privilege he
would treasure to the end of bis life,
to cross from Yokohama tu Seat thin the same vessel with General
Booth. Coming to Ihe subject of
tbe present gathering, his worship
Inquired: "What would become of
such girls and women us are received
here were there no Mich home as
talK7"0    The  Salvation Army   was |
doing splendid work in the city ami
in Salford, and bail as things were,
they would be very much worse
without the helping hand Ihe Army
offered,
The general's message to Mrs.
Booth was as follows: "Delighted to
jhear ol the extension ol your homo
of refuge; the work done here constitutes a memento of lite friends
who iirst founded II, and uf my dear
people who are toiling in il. I am
confident ol its methods and principles ensuring permanent and over-Increasing results. My kind regards
ii   the lord mayor.—William Booth."
In the course of what the mayor of
Salford later described as "thai marvelous address," Mrs. Booth said
that the 30,000 now accommodated
iu the Army's social Institutions
were a travelling company, slaying
awhile and then passing out, the
great hulk id them as changed characters. The particular building
which had drawn them together thai
day was an addition to ihe original
home which bad practically been the
gift of (heir friend Mrs. Cross ley. Il
had been found necessary to have a
club-room for our service girls, many
uf whom had come tn us absolutely
homeless ami friendless. For the last
four or five years the warden, Brigadier Gorton, had been very much handicapped because she had no room
she could set apart for the use of
those who had passed out of the
home Into service. Last year eighty-nine of them returned, thirty-seven to spend their holidays ami the
i (her fifty-one for shorter stays
when changing situations. Including
tills eighty-nine, there had been 277
eases passed through the home timing
(he last twelve months, only twenty-
seven of whom were unsatisfactory.
Commissioner Cox made lite financial statement as interesting as a
.lory £511 had been raised iu (he
home hy the making and sale of
needlework over and above the quart-
llty regularly turned out for its
upkeep, tin bad been banded to the
brigadier by a company of service
girls.
The lady mayoress spoke feelingly
from her own knowledge of the need
for such a home as I his, and she bad
very great pleasure in declaring the
new building open
Thf mayor of Salford, in proposing
a vote of thanks, said this work of
ilu- Salvation Army was a wonder,
simply a wonder. And Mr. William
Simpson, J.l'., an old friend and
subscriber, also addressed the gather
Ing.
workers needing food, thus increasing
the home markets for the British
Columbia growers.
(5). The present l!. S. tariff
against apples is 25 cents per bushel,
ami the Canadian tariff (10 cents per
barrel) approximately 15 cents per
bushel.
(0). At the prices obtained in
('anada for first-grade Washington
and Oregon apples the protection is
only equal to frum 7 per cent to 10
per cent oil value, which, if the
growers bad any real over-production, would ml prevent competition
with British Columbia fruits, as
there is ample margin of profit to
cut prices 25 per cent, and still
make profits greater than those of
must businesses.
The lar.ff, therefore, has not been
British Columbia's protection so far
as apples are concerned, but the
simple factors of supply and demand.
Kill ish Columbia can produce the
finest apples in the world, and it
needs people to eat them. Canada
has a rapidly-growing) population;
hut the United States has a population of 00,000,000 already existing,
and growing rapidly, too. It is a
line market to throw open to the
British Columbia growers I think,
loo, that the treaty will considerably enhance the values of British
Columbia irrigated fruit lands,
I will, iu respect to this, quote an
extract from a letter just received
from Mr. W. T. Stirling, one of the
most experienced fruit growers in
British Columbia, whose.brand is to
he found on many consignments that
come to this country. His expression of opinion may carry greater
weight than mine. He writes: "Re
reciprocity treaty: 1 see no reason
why this should depreciate the value
of fruit land in British Columbia,
The greatest effect that could result
from the throwing down of all artificial barriers to trade between British Columbia ami the States would
he that conditions in British Columbia would be assimilated to those in
Washington and Oregon. Consequently, values would be similar,
and lirst-eluss fruit laud in the Ok
onogan would sell at tbe same prlci
as equally good land does in tin
Williamettc and Yakima Valleys, etc
As you know, the price of fruit land
in these valleys is higher than it is
now iu the t ikaitagan, while our lands
enjoy natural advantages."
I am, yours truly,

RECIPROCITY AND FRUITGROWING
THE APPLE    A.S A TEXT OF    A
PLAIN SERMON OM THE
SUBJECT.
The following letter is concerned
with the reciprocity treaty between
Canada and the United States, anil
its effect nn Canadian fruit -growers.
To the Kdilor of the Financial News.
Sir: I am returning to British Columbia within a few days, ami, as a
resident and owner of fruit-land in
Kast Kootenay, familiar with tno
conditions in British Columbia, and
also in the adjoining Stales td Wash
Ington anil Oregon, I would like to
make your readers a plain statement
of facts before I sail, and to correct
some very erroneous statements that
have appeared in various papers lately, I can only assume that party
bias and "imperialism" have led
some of tbe writers to make the
commercial aspects entirely subservient to political ones.
Before 1 am misunderstood, lei
me state that I am not about It express any opinion upon the proposed
treaty, as regards its general effect,
either upon Canada or upi n the empire, but merely as regards Ihe fruitgrowers' interest, But, to deal
with some facts which are apparently
unknown to must ot the writers:
(l).  The apple production   of   the
United States  within the past fourteen years has decreased about  two-
thirds,     Tbe figures are as follows:
Barrels
Iftftft  00,153,000
IKiin  00,070,000
IHltfl  B8,IOC,000
I mm  50,820,000
1903  10,020,000
]!Hll  43,8000,000
1007  28,000,000
I1MIR  23,025,000
|!MiU  22,786,000
Within this period the population of
the I'uited Stales lias* increased
about 20,000,000, while the apple has
become more popular as an article nf
diet and railway transportation has
made its distribution more easy
(2). Notwithstanding tariff, Ontario, the province of Canada supposed lo be most hardly hit hy reciprocity, in /egard to fruit, last
year shipped In,mm barrets into the
United states.
(3). Concerning British Columbia:
Apple growers in the adjoining States of Washington and Oregon gel
equally good or better prices for
their apples than the British Columbia growers. Their lands nre dearer to buy, and the apples consequently to produce. The freight rates
are by no means inconsiderable, and
there Is brisk home demand for apples, consequently there is no Inducement to invade British Columbia
markets at cut prices.
(I).   Tbe removal of tariffs by   the
ISA.   on    coal, timber, and wheat
