BIG TELEPHONE PROJECT
TO CONNECT CHANBHOOK LINK
WITH ALHKHTA.
(The Frank Paper,)
There is excellent prospect that
ihe Pass will soon have one of the
greatest conveniences that could he
afforded it, namely: a long distance
telephone line through the entire
Crows Nest Pass aud affording telephone communication between all
pails of the provinces of Alberta aud
iiniish Columbia.
II there is realization ot the prospect, it will be brought about
through the coasuinmatiou of a project whereby tiie Craubrook tiledrle
Light company will build a line to
Crows Nest and the Alberta government will extend the line it is now
building to the Pass, to Crows Nest,
the two lines connecting at that
point. There is good probability
Uiat the project will materialize.
The Cranhrook company has a
water power plant near Craubrook
Irom whieh electric power is lo be
supplied to Ciuuhiook aud othet
places along the Crows Nest line.
One phase ol its scheme of operations
to build a long distance telephone
line through the Crows Nest Puss, oi
rather, that portion of it, lying in
British Columbia. The line Is now
built as Ear east as Klko and it is
the intention to extend it to Crows
Nest.
The Alberta government, as is
known, is Imi I ding a line to the Puss
from Calgary. It was originally III-
tended to make Frank the western
terminus of the government tine, but
It has lately been decided to extend
ihis line to Coleman, which would
leave only about eight miles to build
to make connection with the Cranhrook company's line. Itepresetiiu-
lives of tlie company will visit Kii-
nionton in-a few days to endeavor to
induce the government to build to
Crows Nest and connect. Since it is
so manifestly the disposition of thu
Alberta government to a lb ird the
people of the province lhc greatest',
possible lieiieiits from its public1
works program, there is little douht
that the new pnipos.il will appeal to
it sulliciently strout- to warrant a
decision to carry the line to the
boundary.
One gratifying phase ol the proposition is thai if the scheme materializes at all it is most likely to come
within the year, as the government is
pushing work on the line it Is building to the Pass. The pole line from
Calgary south is well under way
with tlie poles'up about half the distance. The holes are dug to Macleod
and from there to Frank and it Is the,
intent-ion to have the line In operation by fall. The Cranbrook people
expect to reach Crows Nest about
the same time and therefore il the
through line Is opened it will most
likely be ready before Winter.
The consummation n( the project
would be of the greatest possible
benefit to not only the people along
the Crows Nest line, hut to the
whole public of AHierta ami British
Columbia, as the ""overnment's
scheme Is to give connection with all
Tarta o* the province while the Cran-
irook people expect to ultimately extend west to the coast or at least"
to a connection with the coast.

To lhe Honourable Memhors of    the

olKiwan, Alberta and   British Columbia:

members oi   parliament   representing
tin* constituencies In which Un* members rcpieseiiK-d   by  this body     are

"We, as practical railroad men,
actively engaged in railway sol vice,
oppose the measure tor the following
reasons:
"First—Wo consider it inatritcstly
Unfair io attempt to reduce Uie pas-
sen_or rate in this country lo the
rale as applied in older and more
densely populated couutrles. The
cost of oper.itiiiii in Uie ^riniU-r pa|i
Of Canada on aceoiiiil of the W

with the eust ul operation of the

.^^__^—__ lenger liallic is so
light ihat it' would absolutely mean
Lhe abolition ol passenger trains for
the slower and uioie teiiiunei'at'iv-j
mixed trains, ami further, wc d,n
not believe the railways tan give the
service Ihcy now do if lhe rate is to
lie reduced, They will simply have
io cut expenses by reducing the
number of Ll'iilns and crowding thoso
which are run.
"Second—11 this rate is applied,
how about the excursion rates, such
as homo-seekers, industrial exhibitions, farm laborers, hockey tennis
and sporting Hubs of all kinds thutt
now, iu many cases, enjoy a much
lower rate iban twu cents per mile'.'
lu fact, to lake the farm laborers as.
as instance, ihey have been brought
west heretofore from tiie eastern
provinces tu Manitoba and Saskatchewan for about $111 per pas sen iter, and
returned for $1S. We are of the
opinion thai if the two cent rate
goes into effect the railway will have
to (iii self-defence) make all passeng-i
ers pay the maximum rale. This
will mean untold hardships on the
farmers of ihese western prairies,
who are dependent on the help Ihey
receive from these laborers' excuM
sions, and the men certainly (in our
opinion) will not come west if they
are compelled to pay more for railway fare iban they ean earn in tho
two or three months which constitute
the harvest ami threshing time in
this country.
"We are, therefore, of the opinion
that ii would be suicidal to the interests of the Canadian west to enact
a law forcing a maximum two-cent
passenger rate on the railways of
Canada, and would earnestly pray
that you will use your influence in
opposition to this law."
We wish to draw your attention to
the (act    that     this action of     tho
joint general committee has in no le-
tfpect been prompted bv any of     the
officials of the railways.     It is simply  the voluntary outcome of our de.
initiations and discussions for     the
welfare of  the  railways and  railway-
employes.
We remain respect fullv yours,

MRS. McKlNLEY    PASSES AWAY
Canton, Ohio, May 2(l.-MrS. William McKiuley, Widow of the late
president, died ut her home bete at
1.05 o'clock this afternoon. For
many years Mrs. Mckinley has been
an invalid. She recovered from the
shock of her husband's tragic death,
but it left its mark, and when it was
known that she had suffered a stroke
of paralysis little hope was felt that
she could survive.
The end came peacefully, almost
Imperceptibly. Mrs. McKiuley never
knew of the efforts made to prolong
hei lire, or the solicitous hope
against hope of her sister aud other
irlalives and friends for her recovery. At the McKiuley home, when
death came, ihere were present Secretary Cortelyou, Mr. aud Mrs. M,

BY A DREAMER.
DON'T WHINE.
Don't be whining about having a
fair chance, Throw a, sensible man
out ol the window and he'll fall on
his feet ami ask tlie nearest way to
his work. Thu more you have bo
begin willi the less you will have in
the end Money you earn yourself is
I nnii-h brighter than any you get out
1 dead men's bags. A scant breakfast in the morning of lite wets the
appelilc for a feast later in the day..
lie who tasted a sour apple will have
the more relish for a sweet one.
Ynur present wunt will make future
prosperity all the Bweoter. Eighteen
nonce bus set up many a |iedlar in
liusiiiess, ami he bas kept his carriage. As for the place you are
cast iu, don't Hud fault with that,
you need not he n horse because you
were born in a stable.
If a hull tossed a man of metal sky
high, he would drop down into a
good place. A hard working man
with his wits about him will make
money while others will do nothing
hut hise it.
As to the little troubles, who expects to lind cherries without stones
or roses without thorns'' Who
would win must learn to bear. Idleness lies in a lied sick ol the mulli-
gruhs, while industry finds health uik!
wealth. The dog iu tire kennel
harks at fleas, ami the hunting dog
does not even know that they are
there. Laziness waits till ttiejrtver
is dry, and never gets to market.
"Try" swims it, and makes all the
trades. "Can't do it" would not
eat 1he bread cut for him, but "Try"
made meat out of mushrooms.
HOW TO BE MISERABLE
Sit hy a window and look over the
way to ymir neighbor's excellent
mansion, which he has recebtly built
and paid for and fitted out, and
sigh, uO, that I were a rich man!"
Oet nngey with your neighbor and
think you hnve not a friend in tbe
world. Sh«l a tear or two, and
take a walk in the cemetery ami keep
continually saving to yourself:
"When shall I lie buried here?"
Sign a note for a friend and never
forget your kindness, and every hour
in the day whisper to yourself: "I
wonder if he will ever pay that
note!" 1 think everybody means to
cheat you. Closely cxumlne every
bill you take, and doubt its -being
genuine until you have put your
neighlmr to a great deal of trouble.
Put confidence in nobody, and believe
every man you deal with to he a
rogue. Never accommodate if you
can possibly help it. Buy as cheap
as ynu enn and screw down to tbe
lowest cent. Ohnd the faces and
thi? hearts of the unfortunate. Brood
over vour misfortunes, you lack of
talents, and believe that at no distant day you will come to want.
Let the workhouse he ever in your
mind, with all the horrors of distress and poverty.
Follow these recipes strictly and
you will be miserable to your heart's
content—if we may sn speak—sick at
heart and at 'variance with the
(world. Xnthimr will cheer or encourage yon, notion*; will throw a
gleam of sunshine nr * ray of warmth'
into your heart. You will he an
isolated creature, a perfect picture of
woe, discontent  and despair.
THE FOLLY OF THE DAY
There is a dreadhil amW-tion abroad
tor being "genteel." We keep up
appearances too often at the expense
honesty; and though we may not
rich, yet we must seem to he
...jpeet-iblc," though only in the
meanest sense—iu mere vulgar show
We have not the courage to go
patientlv onward In the condition of
life in which it has pleased Ood to
call us; hut must needs in some
fashionable state to which we ridic-
ulously please to call ourselves, and !
all to gratify the vanity ot that
unsulistanMtil, genteel world, of
whieh we form a part. There is a
constant struggle and pressure tor
front seats In the socinl amphitheatre; in the midvt of which all
noble setf-denyin*; resolve is trodden
down, and manv flue natures are inevitably crushed to death. What-
waste, what misery, what bankruptcy, come from all this ambition
to dazzle others with a glare of apparent worldlv success, we netd not
describe. the mischievous results
show themselves in a thousand ways
—in the rank frauds committed by
men who dare to be dishonest, hut
do not care to seem poor; and in tbe
desperate dashes at fortune, in
which the pity is not so much for
those who fad as for the hundreds
of innocent families who are so often
involved in their ruin.
What becomes ot the honey alter
lhe honeymoon is over?
Keep the hoine-llres bright il you
would have the winter ot life warm
and pleasant.
Some of the people who are the
most anxious about the recognition
of friemls in heaven are the ones who
shake hands with two fingers in
church.
Don't lorget mother when picnics
and good times are in order. Don't
let her do all the hard work. And
bovs, treat her to some fresh air
everv day liehind thnt newly-broken
colt.
Bv nil means keep tlie bright home-
lights burning and open wide the
'Shutters. Home should not be a
darkened, narrow and exclusive
place—thu t Invites narrowness and
selfishness in tbe individual. It
should be a spot from which light and
, joy and good cheer radiate.

that he will not sign the agreement
as it is absolutely unfair to the mine
owners.
"That agreement docs not settle
tin matter he said 111 an interview
this morning. "Hillcrcst will never
o|ien on that schedule as long as my

makes an increase of 25 cents a ton
for mining and that leaves us absolutely no margin for profit. It
costs over $100 a day to keep the
mine closed, but I will not re-oiien
it."
He explained that his men were
perfectly satisfied with conditions.
They had no grievance at all with
the owners. They voted nt n ratio
of 27 to 1 to return to work at the
ild scale of prices but as members of
the union, they had to stay out.

The average vein is only fout lo five

Mr. Hill added that skilled labor is

work on his property only two or
three are skilled mechanics. 'I'hey

THE TOBACCO  HABIT

Physicians, chemists ami physiologists (many of thorn smoking thcin-
selvps) agree thai smoking lieforo

n waste of nerve power and brain
force, and thus squanders life by
weakening the very center of

iu all Lord Wolseley's campaigns Im
made it a rule, where possible, to iil
low each soldier one pound of tobacco per month, which ho considered a
iair allowance. lu Italy the military authorities recognize Hie weed
as one of tlie comforts essential to
the troops, and cigars are served oul
lo them with their daily rations.
In Prance there are (1,0011,000 smokers, and of every fifteen Ihere ani
eight who smoke a pipe, five who
smoke cigars and only two who arc
cigarette smokers. Still tlie French
consume more than sou.uuu.uuu
cigarettes a year, or enough to go

were placed end to end in a line.

The best cigars manufactured com,,
from Cuba, the tobacco for which is
cultivated in the famous Vtielta, de
Abe Jo district, west of Havana. This
favored spot is located on tin* bunks

world can leaves of such excellence be
produced.
The most expensive cigars made

the tariff history of that country:
lu an editorial entitled, "Wages
Delusion," the Louisville Courier-
Journal roaves an interesting
answer to a republican newspaper
that claimed tbat the cotton mill
operators in North Germany get
only $191.04 a year, while in
America they get $304.57.
The Courier-Journal says: MIt
looks a little queer to see argument for protection made on the
grotindthat it gives our laborers
$304.57 a year. There arc 313
working days in the year, barring
holidays with pay, so that the
wage is less than a dollar a day.
Now a farm laborer at $2h a
month and board gets $210 in
money, and the board would, even
at a low rate, bring the total up
as high as that of the cotton mill
operator. It is well known that
the farm laborer has no protection, and it is hard to see how
the cotton mill operator gets any
benefit from it. Laborers iu many
unprotected employments get
more than a dollar a day. Moreover, the owners of cotton mills
Import laborers free from foreign
countries. If the protective
tariff makes prices of commodities high—and we know it does-
why, is there not a tariff on import-ad labor? Tbat Is the logic
of protection to labor by a tariff,
if it is to be done at all, hut the
fact of it. is that it is not intended to make labor high. The men
who make tliis argument in order
to get. labor support are the same
men who import foreign labor to
keep down the prices they must,
pay to laborers at home. They
are the men who sell to customers in America steel rails for
$2ft a ton, and sell them abroad
at $20 or $22, making a big profit on an article which confessedly
costs about $11 The argument
that protection makes high wages
Is a ridiculous fallacy, They
bave always been higher In America than 1n Europe. But in
Europe the highest wages are
paid in free-trade England, and
the countries where they nre lowest have the most rigid systems
of protection."

alleged to have said, "The American
flag is nothing but a dishing," was
compelled to salute the flag and
carry it several miles on a threat of
luring lynched.
With the lyndiing threat the Dally
News has no sympathy, but that this
fellow Pegg should bave been made to
a|Ki!ogi/e goes without saying. Any
man who wantonly insults the flag- of
any country that gives him support
nnd protectlpn Is an IR-carat tool
and deserves to have the foolishness
taken out of him.
If ,1 man does not respect the flag
of the nation that protects him, he
should get out ot tbe
find a more suitable clime; and this
j particularly refers to the man who is
earning his bread and butter from tlie
country whose flag hv insults.
The man who doesn't believe his
own country is tho best on eiirlh and
who doesn't, revere the Hag thnt is
lhe emblem of bis country isn't much
of a man after all; but ito fellow
who is always trying to bolster up
bis country hy abusing all other
countries is a fool, first, last nnd always, nnil deserves every kick that
comes bis way.
There are a few Peggs in every
country.

been' possible under other circumstances, The lumber and wheat business which had been very badly to*
himl were completely cleaned up, all
other freight had been moved and the
road found itself at the end of the
strike in better condition as regards
being up to date wilh freight handling than it had been for some years.

The average man comes very near
being an idiot, in taking care of himsell. You have seen him wearing a
fur cap on his head while his shoes
let in the snow and water. He,
wears an overcoat on bis back and
nothing hut- a 111 in shirt over his
chest. He is miglty seared about
freezing his fingers "while his throat
is exposed to blizzards and he is
often ailing, or thinks he is. It's
herb tea. Peter's   pills, Paul's    pine
ordials or plasters and cure, until
the balance wheel in the machine
comes to a stop. Nature wants to
Veen going hut she can't. He drinks
whiskey and that clogs the valves;
drinks lieer and that clogs the
wheels; he pours down lemonade,
singer ale, butter milk, ice water,
tea, coffee, and what not, and wonders why the fires under the boiler
do uot burn. If you should take an
ox and put him through a like performance he'd be dead in a year.
The simplest and plainest laws of
health arc outraged every hour of the
(lay by the average man Did Adam
-moke- Did Eve wear corsets''
Did Solomon chew tobacco? Did
Ruth chew gum? Did the children
of Israel make (or a beer garden

the door shut ami two dogs under
the tied. Suppose Eve had laced
herself up in a corset and put on
light shoes, sat up all hours of the
night    eating   her fill     of trash and
iz/Ied her hair. When you come to
