The court of. appeal has allowed
the appeal of the defendants in the
ease of Kr/us vs. the Crows Nest
Pass Coal company. Chief Justice
Macdonald and Justice Gallagher
favored the appeal, with Justice Irving in the negative. The ease concerns an Austrian who was killed, in
the company's mines. Action was
b rough I on behalf of the relatives in
Austria under the Workmens Compensation Act, Justice Clement allowing the claim. The decision of
the court ol appeal is based on, the
laci ihnt the act was intended for
the benefit of parties residing within
the province and not for outsiders
over whom the provincial legislature
has no jurisdiction.

immediately with the construction of
the Hudson's Hay railway and liki
wise adopt a progressive policy in
regard to the extension of the l.C.It

purchase and construction of additional branch lines. It is understood that it was decided to add
three new branch lines to the system
in New Brunswick and two in Novo

house by the minister ol railways at

The Liberals say that there was
hut little discussion id the situation
arising out of the apparent deadlock
on the reciprocity question. It was
taken ior granted from what occurred
in the house on Saturday that the
light would be proceeded with in the
house and thai Sir Wilfrid Laurier

It is generally admitted that this

powers, including Germany. The ox
perlmental trials of the new weapon
are expected to take place early in
the presence of admiralty experts.

been greatly stimulated by the pre

Angus, mid portrait of King James
V., ii flintlock pistnl of silver, two
carved dirks, targo with pierced
bosses, and three swords with buskel
bills of silver. Tbo.pl .trails are of
special interest. The portrait ol
James V. is one of the few existing
repiesi-nlalions of his majesty's mi
ceslora, the Stuart Kings ol Scotland, wllllu that of Lord Daruley is
closely connected with the trnglo
story of Mary Queen of Scots.

The London, Eng., issue or the War
Cry, of April l.'.th, just to band, is
largely devoted to reminiscences of
the great chieftain, General William
Booth, whose 82nd birthday was
celebrated on April lOth,
A special feature of this noteworthy event was the big birthday
parly lu-ld in ilie Congress Hall, at
which the general was present and
delivered as inspiring address. Upon
ibis occasion tin' Following message
from Her Majesty the Queen was
read amid thunders of applause:
Buckingham Palace.
April 9, 1911.
Deai Genera] Booth:-
Thc Queen has commanded me ta
write and convc) t<> yoo her sincere
congratulations and best wishes on
the celebration ol your birthday in
this ycai ol their Majesties' Coronation
bed in wiucii i awail lite closing
moments of my earthly existence. I
feel as though I see you mid the
whole Army ol Salvationists voicing
your resolution lo be tnuo to the
convictions I Iravo lodged within
your hearts.
"M) comrades, I bless yi u with
all the blessings ol which mi soul is
capable, and I call down upon you,
mul upon your wives, husbands, children, mid children's children the blessing of my Heavenly Father'
"This is, as wo all know, my
eighty second birthday, That is a
long Innings! And surely during all
that time I shall have learnt something worth knowing mid that is
calculated i< help me to further
carry on this War and to carry it
on to the end of my command!"
(Enthusiastic volleys).
Optimistic as ever, the general
looks forward to the lime when his
present eye trouble will be remedied,
and outlines a series of prospective
engagements, decided upon in the
spirit of faith and confidence, in
Scandinavia, Canada, the United
states and Germany, in addition to
the International Social Council in
the near distance. And then, "Well,
then I may hope the hour will have
arrived that tbt operation on the
other eye will take place and I shall
he a young man again!"
Naturally no occasion could he
more fitting foi a glance hack at the
Army's beginnings. Speaking of his
first stand on Mile Km! Waste and
the dramatic, historic, and soul-
moving utterance he nmrie to The
Army Mother—"Darling, 1 have
found my destiny"—he says:
"My destiny    was   not a fortune—
not a big   church with a bin salary.
No! My destiny     was   Whiteehapel."
(Volleys).    "I have given you,"    he
goes on, continuing that epoch-marking dialogue, "and I have given   my
children—and here is one," ho added,
in   an    acceptable aside, indicating,
amidst thunderous applause, the chief
i f the   tan
I    "And, having started, I stuck      to
' it, though perhaps during my eighty-
two years I might     have done more
I and done belter,"
Hut this notwithstanding, what had
been done had been done well, and
Ibis leads the general to explain
some of those ideals and principles
Which have made the Salvation Army
what it is today.
"From the first time I stood upon
a chair and talked lo a crowd of
people in Nottingham, there have
lieen written across every speech 1
have made these big letters, as big
and as plain as I could make them—
"One of lire scents of ihc Salvation Army," the general proceeds,
"is not that she has been saving men
from sin and hell, hut that she has
been making them saviors ol others
'Saved i" ■erve,' that's the motto—
that's tin motto!"

is a better flour, because I follow
it through every stage.    First,
I am mighty particular in the
selection of the wheat, and that
counts a lot.   In fact, it is one
of the very biggest factors in making a
superior quality of flour.   There is a big
difference  in districts, you  know, and
for Seal of Alberta   we select wheat
from particular districts.
"Then   we  are    careful   about    cleaning   it.
It is screened and scoured and washed.   It would
be hard to do  any more than that, wouldn't it ?
Then we have searched the  world for the finest
milling machinery, and we have it here    When the
wheat is milled it is  tested  and aged, and not a
sack goes out to you until it is just right.   And that
is why so many people say Seal of Alberta is a better
flour.   Those who use it know it is better, because
it makes a larger, lighter, whiter loaf of better texture
and finer appearance.   Those who use it know it is
better—I have told you some of the reasons why."

Craubrook' city band is not enjoy
ing the prosperity that characterize]
practically every other city institu
Hon, ami this is a condition of af
fairs that s bonld be remedied. At
present only two of the original
members of tho band are actively
sociated with it. There is urgent
need that some of the skilled mui
eiaiis, oi whom Craubrook can claim
a goodly number, should pbee tbei
services at the band's disposal. Th
city council have promised the cits
lomaiv grant, but this is conditional
upon certain specified performances,
throughout the summer months by
t he band, serv ices, which, mulct
existing conditions, the hand will be
unable lo render. It is therefore
essential that all competent bands
men should at oner pitch in and aid
in restoring Cronbrook's city band t
ils former strength. A good band
Is a valuable civic asset, and the
Herald sincerely hopes that those
capable i I securing this desideratum
will take this notice in the spirit id
which it is intended.
The idea id commemorating the
erection of the new city hall by
some form of civic celebration has
been well    received, although the
suggestion put forward last week
cannot be acted upon. It is contrary
to the regulations governing the Ma
sonic order for that body to pat tin
pate in a publi e affair of this kind
under the conditions that rightly
govern such demonstrations. How
ever, that fact need in no way mill
late against a civic demonstration
thoroughly representative of th
city's varied interests.

Tho Toronto Globe says: "Until

attention can be paid to the vague
charges id graft made against mi unnamed minister in a Toronto evening
paper. The threat that such charges might be made has boon known

three months,     and unsuccessful     ef

at ion that he "wouldn't touch it
with a ten tool pole in order not to
soil the pole." When Sit Wilfrid
Laurler made bis statement in ihc
ci ntmoiis this afternoon It was greeted by enthusiastic applause, and no
comment was made upon it by either
side of tlie house. To the present
Lho consplrati is have contented
themselves with cowardly anonymous
insinuations. The noxl move is
theirs and il is awaited with interest.
When I lie house met Sir Wilfrid
Laurler said: "1 deem it my doty to

made to me. The article is a long
one and I did nol read it all it

The article proceeds to say that on
the second of March this letter was
addressed to me:
•' 'My Dear Sir Wilfrid: 1 see that
you are having troubles of your own
by defection of the 'Young Napoleon,' on the trade question and in
other ways. The other ways are
more serious. Only in one Instance
in the history of Canada has trade
played a part in the making or unmaking of a government, ami that
was in 1R7H. Even then, as yon
well know, there was contributor)
negligence on the part of Ihe govern
•Clifford Sffton's defection on the
present occasion will not count
against your government, lie is a
squeezed lemon politically and With
out patronage and controls no foi
'Neither your government nor any
other government will fall, except
from weakness on the inside. That
was what happened to the Tories in
1896. Members of the cabinet had
hocome corrupt and the McGreevy
Langcvln scandal aided by the Maui
toba school bill and cabinet crooked
noss, did tlie rest. Recently the
evidence has come to me that one ol
your colleagues is a grafter and a
boodler. I shall he in Ottawa for a
few days and am willing to submit
evidence to you as Tarto was willing
lo submit his evidence of Langcviu
McGreevy boodllng to Sir John Macdonald. Should you SCO fit lo take
Immediate action it would go no
further. The alternative would Into place the document and letters
ami photographs of cheques, etc, in
tin- bauds of the opposition.'
"On receipt of that letter I Instructed my secretary to send the
following ci in in u ideation to the
gentleman who wrote it:
"Ottawa, March :., 1011. Hear Sir.

Mr. Oliver read the dispatch which
set forth two illslim t statements.

over nun,linn acres of land earned

$50,000 and the other for $10,000 had
been deposited to the credit of Ml
Oliver in the Imperial Hank at Kit

After rending this newspaper statement Mr. Oliver noted that no direct
statement of any charge had been
made against him. No connection
was alleged or inferred bet ween tho
transfer of land and the alleged deposit nf money to his credit, bill the
statements were placed side hy side

To tho Mayor and Councillors, Cranbrook, B. C—
Gentlemen :—
We take pleasure In submitting herewith report with plans for the
sewerage of your city. ,
The design, consists of an intercepting main drain through the city
along tlie lowest lying ground, into which all subsidiary drainage will
discharge, thence by un outfall sewer to sewage purification works fully
a mile to the northeast ol the city limits, where an outlet Is obtained
into St. Joseph's creek* where it crosses the railway through culvert
The capacity of tfie drainage system is ample for eitension and
growth to a population of about 15,000 and capable ot taking a reasonable proportion of surface water, while the first Installation at purification works Is good lor fully .Willi people.
We find that with your excellent system of lanes 30 feet wide, they
work out economically and to udvantuge, thus saving most of the streets,
Including Baker street, from being torn up for sewers and branch connections to buildings. The t'onstiuctiou on the lanes behind the business
blocks on Baker street can he curried out quickly in slant stretches and
will give hut. little Interruption to traffic.
The purification anil disposal works consist of (I) g small screen
chamber where the sewage is first roughly screened before passing into
(2) the liquefying or septic lank. Tills is a cover-in tank of concrete,
Willi necessary steel reinforcing, of dimensions shown on plan,
having battle walls, sludge pockets, manholes and all necessary
appliances. The liquid effluent from the tank is passed onto (3) the
percolating niter built up of coarse sized material to a depth of li feet
on a concrete Hour (10 ft. x 50 ft. The tank liquid is spread evenly
over the entile surface of this Alter by means of special patented
sewage distributors. The diluent from the percolating filter, which
is already in a high purified state, is finally passed through (!) a
line-grained linishing Olter of sand, 00 ft. x 30 ft. s 3 ft. deep, where
the Onal stage of piliflcation takes place, resulting in an effluent with
a very high degree ot purification physically, chemically and bacterlolo-
gically. A sludge (5) is provided onto which the mineral sludge
which accumulates in the lank can be run periodically for drying out
nnd Onal disposal. The Oilers are arranged so that compartments can he
shut nil for surface cleaning, etc., without interfering with the continuous use of the works. All byepass pipes, valves, storm-overflows, etc.,
for the efficient operation u. the works are included.
We submit herewith a carefully prepared schedule giving in detail
full and explicit description with particulars, costs, etc., all as per accompanying plans. i
