(Ry .Joseph Ryan.)
The feast of Corpus Christ! is the
■iieat Catholic festival of the Kooto.
nay Indians, and is anminll) eele
Milled at the St. Kugene Mission
with all the ceremonial, joyousncss
nnd enthusiasm possible on so sacred
au occasion. Lasl Sunday the Mission was nrnivcd in gala dress In
honor of the dav, the houses of the
chief, the beautiful church and the
schools being a blaze of flags nnd de-
corn tions, The streets were spanned
with triumphal nrelies marking the
hue to he followed by the procession.
The Indians from crcston, Windermere, Perry Creek, Tobacco Plains
and even from Alberta were mere,

Looking   about,       noticed  thai

the blanket of manv colors, the eiu-
broldored shirt, the efleclivo hat with

when he said that "men. that is, men
In the true sense, all love color.''
The hues our Indians wore smote the
eye even ns the shattering blare of a
trumpet ass-nils the cat. mc woman,
for all their bravery of reds, and
orange, bright blues' and combinations of color that can outrival a
llower bed, look always depressed,
down trodden nnd sad beyond nil
telling under the'.t htmleti of the
inevitable papoose, even though they
look, nt a distance, like moving sear-
let  qernninms.
Hv nnd bv the bell rang for service
and the church tilled rapidly, the Indians filled the aisles and the white
[iconic iieing relegated to the gallery.
It is a lovely church, simple hut
highly artistic in all Its decorations,
and mo*! spotlessly neat. Ahovc the
high   altar,    brilliant     witb lights,
was the visible proof before our eyes.
Au aged Indian, one time, maybe,   a
worshipper of strange go»is, Knowing
nothing  of the    Infinite   Deity   who
sets his fingers on tin- stars that they
run on their courses rejoicing,    was
redlting the  simple prayers   of     the
Hosnry, while all of liis pcoplb      respond.i!  in the    soft, syllabic  Kootfr
nny.      Inside lhe sanctuary  were the
wis and     six   Indian hoys, brown
faced,     clear     eyed,    wearing cerise
rtitnnes    and    pure   white surplices
ho knell upright and numoving    as
.uue-,     Outside the altar rail were
ie .school    children,  bovs and  girls,
all neatly dressed.     Near them     the
unlet    Sisters ci   Charity, of whom
Kipling,  in his oxquislle "Ballad of
the Dead Sisters,    says, speaking   of
their noble    service   during the Boor
war:
When   the days   were torment, and
ihe night a cloudiil terror
When the Powers of Darkness     had
dominion ol our soul,
When we lied consuming Hit .nigh    the
Seven  Hells of fever.
These    put    oul  I liei i   hands to us,
and liealeili  am)  made us whole."
Thereafter a simply worded sermon
fi      Father     Uagner,    translated
without a moment's pause fur consideration into Kootenay by Peter,
the Interpreter, and the procession of
Ihe Sacred      Host   passed with    band
.md banner >, salvos of rifle lire,
ipialntly sung hymns, stiewn flowers,
inei'iise, glnrc and swirl of color,
calm land men nnd youths, bowed
women, some of them so fantastical-
Id that their wrinkled faces hail
.n blue as  the stnolie of  the    te-
Tho procession passed one cottage
where a Kill, about littecn years ot
HgO. lay inside the open door leaning
again the breast of the old blind Indian, Ta Ta. The little, hacking
cough, ihe hectic spot on the
cheeks, ihe deadly attenuation of the
almost Irauspnrcnt bunds, proclaimed her. poor child, unother victim of
llie while plague. Sho looked out
languidly on nil the festal gaiety ot
lhat summer's day, seeing wnu the
eves of the body, while above her
bent tbe impassive lace ol the old
man, blind, hut seeing with the
dourer eves of the soul. In a little
time the child will wake to the undying life, where there Is no pain, sickness or sorrow; and let ns, with
hearts of faith, trust thai the earthly darkness will fall from the old
man, n'ud thnt she and he may In
thut strange land that lies across our
bourn, realize in their souls what
profound depth underlay the words
of Christ, "Come to me, all ye that
labor and nre heavy laden, and 1 will
give you rest." That was n picture
ot simple faith ami abiding trust in
Cod's word nnd providence, even in
the face of the grimmest calamities
of human llie.    Surely the motto   of
not   done  in like   manner to all nations."
ln thinking of these things, the
pride, pomp, circumstance and
symbolism of the festival grew remote and far removed, for herein lay
the evidence of the force of the word's
t.i .lesus amongst, us even unto our
day of dark materialism and pursuit
! wealth.
OTIS STAPLES' POINT OK VIEW
Oiis Staples, president of the Otis
Staples Lumber company, of Wyclilte,
was in Cranbrook on Tuesday. Mr.
Staples is a man who has made, and
is still making, a deep study of the
possibilities of the district along agricultural lines. Talking about wild
hav on the St. Mary's prairie, he
said that a ton to the acre could
be cut this year on the highest
benchrs ami that he had three mowing machines at work at the present
time. Mr. Staples has also made
some experiments for the production
d early vegetables. From some
potatoes left in the ground last year
he got extra early potatoes, and this
iail'be will plant'half an acre in
this wav. He thinks il is an cxcel-
ent system for early potatoes
though he has doubts as to the
keeping qualities ot the fall planted
tubers. "1 have lettuce 365 days in
the vear," said Mr. Staples. "We
plant- it everv month between April
mid September, and thus, even in the
ilead of winter, we gather It Irom
under the snow. Onions do well
sown iu August tor spring use."
"I believe," cimclnikvl Mr. Staples,
"that we arc in the very liest part
of the Dominion of Canada."
JOHN HOUSTON'S OPINION
(Prince Rupert Empire.)
The Liberals of Kootenay made no
mistake in nominating Smith Curtis
as their candidate for contesting the
district ut thc next Dominion election, from the standpoints ol available v and ability, lie is easily the
mosl available man tbe party has in
Kootenay. He has been a consistent
Libera'! and at the same time a consistent advocate ol dealing with
labor questions on their merits. Few
Liberals can refuse to vote lor Smith
Curtis, and many workingmen who
are nnt Liberals will vote lor him
because lie has shown them that he ts
uot prejudiced against them. He bas
both ability and application, and if
be wiU only apply himself to cutting
out one-half of his speeches before he
delivers them, he will not only be
useful but an influential member of
parliament.! He can talk sense, and
tall, it in words tbat look well in
print.. He has Ideas that are not
reactionary. Smith Curtis can win
Kootenay against such Conservatives
as "Windy Willie" Macdonald and
".llm" Schofield, but were tbe s-un-
sorvnHves to nominate Fred Starkey,
ol Nelson, he would have his work
cut out Ior him.
THE BRISSAC COMPANY
IT PHKSKNTS SEVERAL MOST
PLEASING ATTRACTIONS
Tliat ('ranbrook is a city where
people love recreation alter business
hours, and are ready to pay any reasonable price for clean enjoyment, is
proved by the fact that moving picture shows can fill the Edison theatre
and the Auditorium every evening
in mid-summer. But, unfortunately,
we belong to a theatrical trust, or
tuppeny graft trust, that sends along
aggregations of filth rate, haH-baked-
uni'd imitation.-; of actresses and actors-. The people go to those utter
butcheries of the drama and come
way feeling, with very great reason, that they have been defrauded of
their money, and exasperated at tlie
gall laying back of the glaring exploitation of some gang of broken-
down supers. The result naturally
is that the public lias grown weary
of tbe Irion and doubly wary ol being again victimized. This condition
of the popular mind worKs havoc
with a company really wormy of
support-
It. E. Beattie, manager of the
Auditorium, shares these views, ami
at liis own initiative recently engaged the Virginia Brissac company to
play here for a few evenings. It was
a change, with a vengeance, from the
Robert Gnnthonys, the Cncle Tom's
Cabins, and tlie "dramas, ' where
half the receipts go iu powder that
might Ite usefully expended in really
and truly killing oil (accidentally, of
course) u few dozen of the alleged
actors—save the mark.
On Monday evening '"Sweet wover"
was presented by Miss Brissac and
most thankfully ncceptad as the most
pleasurable dramatic event in t-he
history of Cranhrook. The play
turns on nn Innocent', but compromising, incident in the life of an innocent
girl, which works down into her
married life. Inflames ber husband to
a fury of mad jealousy aril ends in a
scene i d t remcndi >us inlensi t y and
emotion. In the innocence of" girlhood under the shadow of the imperiling tragedy of her lite, through
the dreadful .scenes at the end ot
the second net, and onward to her
return to the home of ber old lather
and the final reconciliation with her
husband, Miss Brissac, as Lois, played with sheer excellence, and above
all, when at tho very bent and summit, of her ma,liv impassioned denunciations of her husband's suspicions, conveyed n sense ol enormous
reserve power' thai left a world Ior
the imagination nl the audience to
work In and upon. Her temierness
never grew lymphatic, and she is too
consummate an artist to tear her passion to tatters. She ran through
each mode ol our life and was mistress of all.
Her support was more than adequate. It can, hv no means, be said
to be a "one woman!' or "one man"
company, whore all arc ol an excellence   much     beyond   thc    average,
and one cannot help remembering
with every kindness the wonderful
character studies of Miss Blackmail,
as Aunt Aiiegail, J. S. Law ton, as
Jerome Holcombc and William Wallace (a rare comedian) as -juj .Mas-
son. Miss Bessie Carney, as Sunny
Andrews, is a most charming and delightful actress. Eugene Mockbee, as
Eldridge Orosvenor, mure t-uan confirmed his reputation as a hign class,
intellectual actor.
Signot Seni provides beautiful incidental music that has true meaning
and relation to the scene on thu I
stage. Instead of the thrice accur-j
scd "rag-time" of the ofuinary in-j
terludes, he rejoices In nocturnes,'.
studies and pastorellcs bright as \\ai-!
teau paintings.
On Tuesday evening a most enjoy- j
able     Euglisii     high-class     comeuy j
Troubles" was pul on in wbicn, Hi j
a widely different part from that oi;
Lois, Mass Brissac asserted herself j
as emphatically as on Monday night,
As. Mrs. West, a bead strung, snal-
low, jealous, all-round-fooi oi u
woman, though good-hear tea enough
in thc last analysis, she offered a
wonderful psychological study requiring a thorough woman and a deep
seeing actress to realize. A lady in
the audience remarked to her companion: "Isn't she perfectly horrid!
Hear how she scolds her poor husband
and 1 think bim ton nice ior anything." Later on, when all tnu
wrinkles were smoothed out, the
same lady said: "l knew sue was
good all througb. Woutdn i you ..-.<
to kiss ber, she is such a uearf'
The Herald presents the criticism to
Miss Brissac for absolute truth,
knowing she will discover the two
pearls of womanly appreciation mat
lie hidden there.
Miss Pauline Al'yn was simpl) the
true embodiment of Senora Qon-
zales, and a more charming senorn
you could not rind in a long day s
journey. Small blame to Marsh for
his infatuation. Eugene Mockbee
was great and most wonderluny natural as Oliver West, while .amis
Conway's Tom Wiai..eiby was a
piece of very finished won,.. And
how the people laughed ami laughu.
till thc tears came as the tangle
tangled itself more and more from
one situation to another more laughable can only he appreciated hv
those who sec that most smooth
working and capable eompany.
Good luck to ihem, one and all,
wlierever they go, and when they return the Herald greatly doubts will
the Auditorium ho'd the crowds Hut
will welcome them as old friends.

2_.m IT MURDER?
I The inquest held last Tuesday to
inquire into how Mike Rooney came
to his death, disclosed the following
I tacts:
j   on the evening of Sunday,   the I lib.
instant, a     Swridc    named   Stephen
i Forsman came    into Pearson's hotel'
at JaiTray, badly cut about the head
and face, making the statement that
| two men had helabored him ou the
railway track and had stolen his
I watch, He was given a room and
| remained ai the hotel tbat night.
Alter Forsinan had retiriii a number
if Swedes, friends of Forman, took
i handcar aud went down the railway to Jewell's camp, where they
met Mike Rooney and a man named
Kelly. The Swedes charged tbesc
with having taken the watch,
an allegation which tbey very forcibly repumnted. This was about Ui.Hu
it night, and, according to the evidence of H. P. Hanson, Axel Hergren
mnl George Nelson, had a rough and
tumble light with Rooney, and ap-
patently Emcl Lmm must- nave taken part iu lhe scullle also, as Hanson
swore thai Kelly, who took no part
in the main battle, bit Limit mi lhe
head with eilher a club or a lock
aud cut him severely. I.uuu Is now
under treatment at the Fernie hospital ami under arrest at the same
time. Hanson did not deny tbat
HetKien and Nelson mv..v Kooncy, or
possibly struck him with one of
those heavy metal match boxes,
which Swedes often carry. He said
also that the tight lasted fully five
minutes and that when Rooney was
down the 'two Swedes "jumped him."
Wlien Hanson and Pearson pulled
Bot'greii ami Nelson oft Koonev the
latter lay limp and absolutely unconscious on ihe ground. At' this
lime Pearson and Constable Lewis
had appeared upon the scene to in-
quiro into the loss of the watch and
Rooney was lifted, almost dead, into
llie hunk house, where he was unable
even to drink water though tue cup
was forced between his teeth, ao
arrests were made and as far as the
evidence' so*'*, uo one was put in
charge of the injured man nor was
medical aid procured until tbe 1„.
four days after the occurrence, when
he was removed to the St. Eu&enc
hospital here, where he dieu on the
I (HIi without having regained consciousness. At the Inquest the upper pari of Itooney's skull was produced out of whieh a portion behind
llie lefl ear had, apparently, been
kicked. This portion, about three
inches hy Iwo inches, was absolately
free and completely detached from the
resl of tbe skull. ' It is almost incredible that Rooney could have
surviviti for live days after sucn an
extensive fracture, especially as tlie
hone was driven into the hfain substance,
Coroner Mallandaine having charged
the jury, Uiey found the following
verdict after having retired for fifteen
minutes:
"We Und that Mike Rooney came
hv his death from injuries" received
on the Hth of .lune, Itmx. at .laffray, B.C., at the bawls of Axel
Hergren, (I. Nelson and Emil Lunn."
Hergren and Nelson are still at
large, but will lie arrested upon the
coroner's warrants, which have been
issued.
At the request oi the provincial
authorities Chief of Citv Police l/ow
went to .laffray and was largely instrumental in securing the evidence
i;iun at  the inquest.

The Liberals of Kootenav have an
able man iu U. 0, Buchanan, of Kaslo, and had he been nominated at the
Nelson convention the party would
not have been ashamed of the choice.
Few men in Kootenay are- more de-
servlng of honors from tbe party.
lie has ability, application, honesty,
and independence. His availablenes's,
may In* questioned, for he is temperate and a believer iu Sunday observance. Kootenay is most liberal iu
all things, and some of its residents
are engaged lu selling liquor. When
a question i.s raised that affects their
business, their political principles aro
often subordinated to their worldly
interests. One of these men made a
"scene" in the convention hy attacking Mr. Buchanan hecause he advocates Sunday olwervancc. If Mr.
Buchanan is un advocate of Sunday '■
observance, it is uot becauso he would '
profit in a worldly way through Sun
day observance. The man who madi
the "scene" is opposed to Sunday oh
-ieivance because he brews beer.

Mr, W. (I, limit bus designed a new

French Canadians compose two millions of the population. His model
Is the ordinary Canadian ensign with
the trl-color i ed lately under   lhe

pretty and artistic looking llag und
Mr. Hunt proposes to try and interest Canadian Hubs In it,'and will

view to setting ,-xpert and influential

The removal by Uie Corporation ot
Winchester, Hants, of some iron
railings which surrounded a Russian
sun in tbat city has led to a violent
display ol indignation, during .whieb
windows bave been broken iu all directions. The subject ol the dispute
was a cannon which was presented tol f^Lnts wm
the city at the time of thc celebra-'wwnis *el
turn of its 700th anuiversary. lt
stood for many years within a lew
yards of the King Alfred statue, and
when it was removed to a spot
St. Giles' Hill a crowd rolled it
down again to its old position.
There it remaineu, surrounded by
heavy rails, but the corporation
came to the conclusion that it was
expedient to substitute for these
kerb and shot chain in view ot the
approaching pageant. This decision
wus construed as a step towards
moving the gun again, and meetings
uf protest were beld. The railings
were taken away at* four o'clock one
morning, and an indignant demon*
stratum was organized without delay. More than 2,0W per suits assembled, and were addttwscd Uy a
man named Dumper. The erowu
then march**! to the mayor s residence, and stones were thrown at the
windows. A procession through tne
streets was held, aud tbe windows
of tbe George hotel, the pageant offices, and several shops, two uf which
are kept by town councillors, were
broken. The mob nest burst into
the pageant ground at Wolvesly, and
an attempt was maile ho set ure to
the grand stand. The piauo was
damaged, chairs were broken, and a
Human chariot was dragged away and
thrown into the river. Soldiers
were sent lor, and tbey appeared
under arms, commanded by Lord
llenniker. Ultimately the crowd returned to the Guildhall, where the
mayor aod several councillors appeared on the steps und promised
thai, if it was the wish of the citizens the railings would be replaced.
This was dime next afternoon.

mountain in the Suowdonian range
with a broken leg a young German
doctor, named llahn, lies in a weak
condition at Llanberns, Carnarvon.
Dr. Hans left Uanbrrris one Sunday
afternoon, saying he intended to
climb one of the heights in tiie
vicinity, but be riid not inform anybody as to the place lie meant to
reach, nor did he engage a guide. He
did not return that night, and bis
absence did not attract a greal tieal
of notice but as he did not put in un
appearance on the following day a
search parly was formed, aud started
in search of the lost tourist. On
the same morning about six o'clock
Mr. J. Hill, id J'enygwryd, also set
out in search. Happening to took in
the direction of Glyder Bach, a spearlike peak near Snowuon. be saw
someone moving a handkerchief ou
the mountain side. He at once went
to the spot, and found Dr. Halm in a
state of extreme exhaustion. Mr.
Hill immediately returm-d to fetch
helpers, and Hie unfortunate climber
was conveyed to the hotel. Dr,
llahn told a striking story of his adventures. He harf scaled tbe mountain for a considerable distance, when
he lost his way in a dense fog, and
to make matters worse an unlucky
fall on the rugged path fractured bis
leg. He then became unconscious and
remained on the mountain side numb
witb cold and blinded by the mist.
Some sheep drew around him curiously, and for two nights and a day
tticy were bis sole companions. He
thought he would make an attempt tu
descend. He had a stout stick with
him and broke it into three pieces.
He used two of tkem as splints tot-
bis fractured leg, and then began the
descent. He was compelled by fatigue to stop and rest dose to a huge
chasm, and it was there tbat his signals were noticed. Altogether Dr.
llahn must have crawled over three
miles.
A strange story ol tbe eccentricities of a wealth) recluse named Holier t K. Harrily, living at Hever,
Kent, was uulolded at Tonbridge police court wben a farm laborer, Alfred IVerless, was charged with
breaking and entering Mr. Harrlid's
residence. In consequence of living
fur twenty-three years alone in the
house, Mr. Hairild, who is said tu
have a life interest in the sum ot
£34,000, has become eccentric in his
behavior. His gardener told the
bench that he received about t*'A a
week for doing nothing. Mr. Harrild
vv.-uld not let him touch the garden;
Mr. Harrild was constantly ^pestered
by lieggars and tramps. As many as
forty or lifty would call in a single
day, and Mr. Harrild gave money to
all. They would not be satisfied
witb coppers but demanded silver,
amt on Rrttftog this, asaed for gold,
which was also given them. Mr.
Harrild, in a state el siege, would
barter with them trom an upstairs
window. The beggars fiiart a price
fur which they would clear oil, and
Mr. Harrild threw them practically
what they asked. Recently a gang,
nl which Peerless was said to be one,
pestered Mr. Harrild the whole after-
noon, and went away about Ave
o'clock with *3 14s. Od. between
Ihem. An hour or so later llr.
Harrild heard a smashing of glass in
t he scullrty, followed by sounds
which lett no doubt In his mind that
a man had crawled in through the
window. Hastily securing thc kitchen door Mr. Harrild began lo barter his gold for peace. Apparently'
a price was agreed on. The intruder'
left the premises, and Mr. Harrild
gave him £4. Mr. Harrild said that
after this incident, as he did not
think the man bad gone, he ran away
from the house and left the front
door open. Peerless, who pleaded
guilty, was committed lor trial.

ashes reached Marazlon from London
und was carried across iu St. Michael's Mount, in his lordship's barge,
with bis four sons in attendance. Attired in their quaint livery ot skirted
scarlet coals and white petticoats
worn ou royal occasions, six bargemen received the remains ol their
former master with uncovered heads
and, enshrouding the coffin with tbe
I'nion .lack, rowed to the island,
which was veiled in a pall of -thicu
fog. Retainers carried the collin up
the rugged ascent, followed by the
members of the lamily, and placed il
iu tbe chapel. The interment ceremony was a simple one, but the brass
cannon used in the siege which the
mount has withstood, boomed out a
requiem of eighty guns.
Tho death of Sir Frederick -Philip-

of tbe romances of the diamond fields
ol South Africa. Sir Frederic, who
was fifty-eight years ol age, and thc
son of the late Mr. Frederic Stow,
of Stieeubockspan, had been connected
with the diamond fields or Soutn Alrica since IMi.t. He was a joint
founder with the lale Mr. Cecil
Rhodes of the famous De Beers Mining company, and one of the first life
governors of the De Beers Consolidated Mines, Limited. The amalgamation of the great African diamond
mines is generally placed to the
credit of Mr. Rhodes, hut, as a matter of fact, it was the late baronet
who conceived and executed the idea.

Why Does
THE HERALD'S
Business Grow ?
f^% ^ HOSE not familiar with
■ the facts might well ask
the question, as it has
been a query to many people how
a weekly paper in a comparatively
small town in the mountains
could do as much business as the
HERALD does.
But the answer is easy.
The HERALD has always endeavored to give the people the
worth of their money, and a little
more if possible. It has published
at great expense an eight page
paper when other publishers in
the Province were content to publish only four pages and ask the
same price that is charged for the
HERALD.
The HERALD has never hesitated at expense to give the people
the news.
For these reasons the HERALD
leads in circulation.
The HERALD has one of the
best equipped job offices in all of
Western Canada, and employs
only artists in the typographical
line. That is why it does such a
large amount of JOB WORK,
and receives orders from Alberta
to Nelson.
As to ADVERTISING, the
HERALD "delivers the goods."
This is evidenced by the crowded
condition of the HERALD'S
columns, where Ads. are printed
from Vancouver to Halifax.
It is easy to see why the
HERALD'S business continues
to grow.
When you want the best of
work, or to advertise in a medium
that covers the field, or read a
paper that gives the news all the
time, see us.  We can please you.

i OBSERVATIONS  |
8 BY THE OI.U MAN. *
Martin Uuncil, in a recenl speech,
put, up a great plea to tihe public to
keen personal abuse oui of politics.
Il is all very proper for judicious
criticisms to Im Mulged in on public
matters when n is in the interests
ot the general weal, but the personal
abuse of the individual seems to be
the favorite sort oi campaign rather
than lair und square cnltloism.
Political differences should be, after
all, simply differences in opinion upon
public quest ions, When politics gel
to a poiui where oue hrea-Ks friendship With bis fellow man it- is time
to call a halt. 1 he country, uniut
ornately, is full of narrow, bigoted
men, who thinK there is nothing good
except on thoir own side ami that
their opponents are ail crooks una
thieves. Banish the thought. There
are good, uue ami honest,men ou
both sides oi tbe political feuce.
The Liberal party in the coining
campaign wil i again be successful,
but with a mtuced majority, ims
win be a good thing tot the Liberal
partv ana a guud thing lor the country.

It is understood that thc authorities will settle thc rival claims of
many different points in the province
claiming the locution of the provincial university by referring the question to « commission composed of
leading educators of the cast, who
may be expected to give uu unprc-

location tor the university Ih h very

point for the university and still
claims that there is no point, in the

The farmers' Institute should at

quantity of potatoes which will be

s a very Important matter, trom
careful inquiry among the dealers the
Herald has luiind that from UoU tu
360 tons of potatoes is ample to
supply the district and thereaftei,
with the quantity of laud planted to
potatoes ihat there is, there will be
surplus for export, lf it can be
estimated how much this surplus will
lie early iu the summer it will be ol
great advantage to the fanner, because arrangements can then be
made to dispose of the surplui
whereas-II the matter is allowed 1o
drift until October all the potatoes

The Republican convention held at
Chicago last week, simply carried out
tlm orders of President Roosevelt,
who has been carrying on a campaign
for Mr. Taft, secretary of war, as
his candidate for the presidency to
succeed himself. With all the demonstrations during the past four years,
the second term of President ..oose-
volt, as to his independence and
anxiety to make the government of
the t'nited States supreme and the
trusts ol thnt country subservient to
the government, yet the platform
enunciated by that convention is a
hollow farce, lt is an appeal to the
labor element and yet shows the bidden band of capitalistic influence.
There is not a clear, concisivo declaration in the whole platform, except on
matters that arc not at issue be
tween the Republican and ueinaritic
narlv. In other words, it is the old
game of politics that has heen played
from The time of Jefferson to the prc-
roirt, and will be played as long as
those who hold the majority of the
votes are content to be servile slaves
of those who have an object
manipulating them. It is twenty
chances tn one that Taft will be
elected. He is a clean mail,
able man, ami conditions demanded
that the Republicans sflouiu nominate an individual ui that character.
But after bis election the Jim Hill's,
tin* Rockefellers -and the Ilarrimans
will hnve no reason to fear. Bryan
the man who is bound to be nominate! tor the third time at Denver
next month, ls the man that they all
fear, for the reason that in every act
of his life he hus shown absolute
sincerity and honesty. Kor many decades the English speaking people
have never known such a remarkable
character as Mr. Kryan. Nominated
twice for the presldtucy of a great
nation nnd each time defeated, Is
enough to senit the brightest mind to
elvnial oblivion. But Mi. nrynn,
by bis powerful mentality, and by an
individualism not Kpiallcd in tlm
whole ol the United States, has
withstood fcliese two defeats and yet
si anils as the greatest mnn in ,i great
party of that country. Bryan has
grown during the past few years, his
mind bas broadened, he Is tess radical on some questions and more conservative on all, And vet the people
of the United Slates will not elect
Mr. Bryan, for the reason that the
people of the United States vv he
fooled again this year by false
promises, rainbow coloring of the Iti-
ture and misrepresentations of the
past. It is an old game and it wilt
be repeated again this year in the
United States, unless there is an unexpected revolution in public sentiment.
The Calgary Dally News got out a
spcolal edition on the 13th, which   is
| a hig boost fnr the Dominion lair and
.' a great   credit   to the newspaper itself.
It looks Incredible, but nevertheless a fact that the first immigrants   deported   from    Canada are
EnaHsbmen, who, with their wives
and little ones landed in Chatham,
Out., a short lime ago. But we
still bave the Doukhuburs, the Droatn-
the Japs, ibe Chinks and tho

ii is passing strange that a woman

Thc lleraM -lias been publishing an
eight page paper each week for a
number ol years. During that time
it has endeavored to give the people
;bc district all the news and its
uliii-ioii shows lhat it has succeeded III doing so. 11 costs money to
piiiit an eight nagc paper m a town
the si/e of Crnnbrook,
There is a little talk of Premtar
McBride being elevated to knight-
hood. Don't do it. There is a
warm feeling in the hearts uf British
Columbians for "Dick," which   would
imiI off for Sir Richard.
Sir John A. McDonald once said,
when the people of the country wero
flinging abuse at his head, that little
things ol thai character did imt
bother him, lor lie always remember-!
kI that as a buy when stealing apples
he found the most clubs under the
best trees. That is one good reason
why Smith Curtis can stand the
personal abuse that is already tilling
ihe Conservative papers on account oi
his candidacy for the Dominion parliament'.
Tlie Herald has never permitted any
man to contribute one or more lines
to its columns when the object ol
that article was to vent some petty
personal spite against some individual. That is the poorest journalism
in the world, and always results in
Injury to the, man who writes lbe
article, to tbe proprietor ol the
paper and to the community generally.
11 u is true that there is wholesale
rottenness in the marine department
at Ottawa, theu it is the duty of the
govornment tu follow up the matter,
giving no protection to the guilty
man, no matter what his standing
may be politically. The best way
to have honest subordinates in the
various departments is to mete out
the pruper punishment to the guilty
unite holders. in the eyes ol tbo
Herald a Liberal thief is just as rotten as a Conservative thief, and it
believes tbat any government should
adhere strictly to one policy in inat-
ters of this kind, and that is: Let
uo guilty man escape."
The Nelson News, conceded to be
the organ of Conservatism in the
Kootenavs, printed a statement in
u recent issue to thc effect that
(toucan Rnss was greatly responsible for the extension of tbe
lead bounty and its favorable conditions. This is nothing strange, as
Duncan Ross, since he has been a
member of parliament, has never
overlooked an opportunity to do all
in his power to advance the best interests of the province. That is one
of ibe reasons whv tbe people of
Vale-Cariboo will re-elect him at the
coming contest.
Last week tbe Cranbrook Prospee-
inr issued an eight page Calgary cdi-
linn for distribution at the Dominion
fair In lhat city. Tbe paper contained a fund of information that, will
prove Interesting to those visiting
thc fair, and give tbem valuable
knowledge of the various resources
of tliis district. Issues of tuis character bv papers in the west are doing
a vast amount of good for the eountrv, far more in fact than tbe newspaper proprietors are given credit
for. The Prospector is to be congratulated on the success o( its issue.
Tbe Kootenay Liberal is a new
weekly that made its appearance last
week at Nelson. Victor (toium, one
of the. best newspaper men in the
Kootenays, or Western Canada for
ihat matter, is the moving spirit of
the publication, and this is sufficient
guarantee to the public that the new
ppper will he tirst-class in every respect, fair and honest in its editorial
comment and possessing many features that, will provo attractive to
the people in the territory where it is
published. Nelson is a splendid location for a paper of that character,
and with proper business management
the paper will prove a great financial
success.
When the nominee of the Conservative party in this district meets with
Smith Curtis on the platform, he will
feel like the man who visited Kansas
for the first time and was struck by
one of the celebrated evelones of that
state.

Thrilling iu tne extreme is the
story told by Conductor Harry tl.
fix* ol the trials and tough places
passed through on lhe eventful jour-
noy. Passenger train Nu. u, i,ne

Spotalu. al noon, June 11, aud lelt al
lU.Oij ior Sundpuint, Idaho, where tne

.San-dpoint lo Troy, Troy to t.hile-
Ush, Whiteiisli to Ctitbauk, and tnonce
to Havre was the route t**vu by
Ihe straying passenger train, from
Havre ttie load - 01 humanity worrying to pass through the liood-bouial
district took thc only avai'ame
chiince to break through the -ban, and
headed lor Ureal Kails, Mom. Ureal
was t-he disappointment when it was
iouud that trallic bad been discontinued' east of that city because of excessive water. The train duubiv,.
hack to Havre and continued to
Devils Lake, N, !>., over the Ureal
.Northern, alter abandoning tho -iron*

washed out fur -il miles, ueviit*.

Fargo over the Niirtberu Pacilic tiie
route led, Fargu tu Hillings over lue
Niirtheru Paciuc, and tbe completion
of a trip extending over _enu miles
marked the last lap ai the trying
journey.
"We were not wanting at any time
for food or water," said Conductor
Peek. *-The dining car was the oasis
in the desert that provided for thu
passengers. Those who were nut
capable of buying their own luua were
aided by lhc a eal liy men ou board.
Mi. Chase, the dining ear conductor,
at various limes was loicrd lu muse

rivers were raging lull. When Havre
was in sight the heaviest rainstorm
Imaginable commenced to detain fas.
liains. At Ureat Fails thc track
wns washed for a solid ,20 miles, uud
almost hope was abandoned. Uur
stalwart engine kept pounding away,
apparently unaffected by the strain
under whieh she was working. The
alkali water used in her boiler was
beginning to tell, and when we abandoned the iron steed she was scheduled for the shops. The run was remarkable; never onee were we delayed by the Qinehing or bii-asitig of
machinery. (Iitided night and day
by the Northern Pacilic cngineman,
assisted by a pilot luinished by the
Cri-eat Northern railway, we shieu at
all slides and sti-ered around the
sloppy places.
"At one instance passengers
thought themselves being carried -nto
the torrents, Ior tile steps and sides
ol the coaches were being scraped by
Hie low. hanging bank ol a cut, just
on tlie verge of toppling over. The
soil came down with a roar just alter our train had passed. We were
derailed once by the spreading of the
tracks. Tho rear trucks ot the engine iumpul the banks and ran along
tho tics Ior 50 leet, delaying the
limited but .10 minutes Ior repairs
and raising buck to tke running
stage. Tie long Butte mountain
loomed before us, and we slid down
into tfce mining town* In apparent
ease.
"Returning, we camp via Fargo to
Livingston, thence to llu.te, where
we switched to the Oregon Suort line,
ki-eping that part until Huntington
was reached. Tbe O. R. & N. then
called us and our route pointed toward Wallula, and thence lo Pasco

LEAD BOUNTY WILL PASS
Tbo first reading ot the bill bonus-
inn tb« lent! itulushy has passed tbo
Ottawa house without itebalf. Tbis
result is due to lhe efforts of Mr.
Pratt and J. L. Retallac, who have
camped on the steps of iht1 Ibiminion
parliament buildings for the last five
months in thi. interests nf the lead
producers of liritisb Columbia, materially assisted by W. A. Onllihex and
Duncan Koss. 'Spoiiking i»f tlm inat-
t*r the other f\vuins hi Nelsnn Mr.
Pratt .sard that there bad been a
loug wait at. tin- capital but after
I the time whieh bad been spent
was not unprofitable The Kootenays bad obtained tbat wbirli it
wanM and, buteoil, bad got mom
than it expected, For the lean bounty is now payable on lend up to the
time it bas reached .tls on the Loudon markel, a long ton, instead of
Uii a.s at present. Not only ibis,
but there is n lurtber concession by
the government. In IU0<i wben the
bonus on the production ol lead was
first granted. $0110,0011 n year was
ivivoii for live years. Tbat is to
say, that the Dominion gnu-rniut-ut
was prepare.) io spend iu lhat five
years Ja.aOO.tum. Now, by reason ul
various causes, tlial sum of mono)
was not expended. There still remains abuut $1,Tali,mil), Tbat
money, by otic of ibe clauses of tbe
bill whieh has just passed ils lii'sl
reading, will be placed to the credit
of the bonus. Thai is to say, that
there is available during tlu- uext live
years not only WOU.uuo a >ear but
alhu the unexpended sum of a million
and threo-quartOE dollars.
Uul as the lead bounty will lie paid
on lead up to a value ol na iiii-ie
a ill be more money expended in
bouussing. I'he bonus is really larger aud for the same output tliere
will be a grenier expenditure. Uut
tins is uot all. Since 1003 there
has been practically a revolution in
the treatment of lead-vane ores and
many properties which, up tn quite
recently, eouid not afford to develop
their lead, even with the bonus, because of the recent improvements n
saving zinc values, are now able tt
do so. Mr. Pratt, therefore, anticipates there will be a tar larger output of lead, nnt only because of lbe
increased bonus, but nlso because oi
the practical abolition of the penult)
on /.ine percentages, making il possible to operate properties wliich bo
fore were unworkable. This, i.f
course, means that there win be a
greatly accentuated activity in the
Slocan. The season this year will
show many differences but the output
of next year, if all goes well, will be
Id -better shape than it has been fni
a long time past-
Mr. Pratt gives a great deal nf the
credit for the work that has been accomplished at Ottawa to Duncan Koss
and while this is admitted, the lead
irtino owners insist lhat Louis Pratt
himsell has been the mainstay of the
Whole proceedings which have result
t«d so well for the Kootenay country
A DAY ON THE FARM
Timothy more than waist high,
oats nearly three feet tall, strawberries nearly ready to pick and fruit
trees loaded with embryo fruit, ts
tbe sight that greeted a couple ol
Herald representatives when they
landed up 'promiscuous like," last
Sunday, at the ranch of K. C Smith
on the St. Marys prairie. High up
above thi- river, in a eouttlry where
dry farming Is the order of the day
Mr. Smith has some IliUO acres ei ;
ranch that anv man might he prowl
of. It is hard, sometime..-, J.i kec-i
on the rough and rocky path of truth
and not fall off into the crevices of
make believe, but the absolute truth
is enough for thc Smith ranch. Oats
wheat, barley, beets, potatoes, tur
nips and in fact, all ordinary farm
crops are looking splendidly. Tbe
strawberries have got their Iruit all
set and promise ari abundant crop.
There is no doubt that Mr. Smith,
the discoverer of the possibilities ot
tbe St.. Marys prairie, will hav
splendid returns this year from his
ranch.

TO KKKP HINDIS OIT
The last issue ot the Canada (ia-
zette contains an important order-in-
couneil bearing on the question of
Asiatic Immigrants required to be
in possession ol at least $25.
"And whereas, Canada Is looking
primarily lor immigrants ol an agricultural class to occupy vacant lauds
and as immigrants from Asia as
rule, belong to lbe laboring classes
and tln-ir language aud their mode
ol life render Ihem unstiilcd for settlement in Canada, wliere there aro
no colonies of their own people to
ensure Iheir maintenance iu case of
their inability to secure employment,
it is necessary that provision be made
so that immigrants possessed of sufficient means to make them temporarily independent of unfavorable conditions when coming Into Canada"
Accordingly, henceforward all Asia-
lie immigrants other than those witb
whose ciiiinlries the government uf
Canada lias special arrangements, or
those, concerning whose countries,
special statutory regulations exist on
the part ol 'Canada must have at
least  4.200 eacV
In plain words this will apply to
Hindus nml not to .Japanese.
NOTES OF NOTED WM
M. EALL1EUES
M. Armand Pallietes, the p-esiutnl
ol the French Republic, who recently
visited England, is sprung, like his
predecessor M. Touhert, ttom the
bourgeoisie, llis peat grandlathcr
and grandfather were blacksmiths at
Vitleneuve de Mc/;in. Orandlatlur
Kallieres was a man with tlie physical strength nf Samson and the dc-
tcimim-tl spirit and unconquerable
will ol (he hard-headed, Intelligent
Gascon. In course ol time he succeeded to the lamily lorgc, and became so prosperous' that he was able
lu remove to a larger smithy at
Mozin. Fortune continued to smile
on the blacksmith.    Ile made money,
ml saved nearly all he tn.-i.le. Ills
son Pierre received a sound education
rate thing in those days—and
(inm this lime lorward .tlie Fallleres
lamily deserted the anvil Ior the saw.
Pierre became a surveyor and valuer,
mul afterwards w-as appointed regis*
I rai* and clerk to lhe local magistrate. Following in his lather's
.outsteps, his sou, Armand, also studied (nr the law. The young man,
who was destined to become president
... the Erencti Republic, took his degree, piaetised at the Neruc liar, and
nas elected mayor ot Nerac. His
political career since 187(1 Is a matter
nf history, sine and ciccptlug the
iuct that, unlike Barkis, he has never

tlml tu* neither sought nor desired
political advancement. Still, there
he is, installed at the Elysec, and
with philosophic resignation making
llu- best ol a nut very bad job. Ills
retiring disposition and love ol ecoa-
iimy are his strong characteristics,
lie has reduced lhc number ol horses

II. L. FRANK IS ILL
H. L. Frank, ol Butte, Montana,
the godlalher ol the town ol Frank,
Alberta, wag taken sick at the Republican convention in Chicago and
was taken to the home ol his sister
In Cincinnati!. It is leared lhat Mr.
Frank's mind Is badly deranged.
THE IUKE OF NORFOLK
The birth of a son and heir at the
heginning of Ihis month to the Duke
ol Norfolk, brings to mind tbe most,
unassuming of all the Rritish peers.
The Luke ol Norfolk is tho premier
nobleman of England and ranks next
In princes of the blood. A man of
very simple tastes, he dresses sn carelessly that, with his black shaggy
bianl and ill-fitting garments, he w-as
taken for a gardener and a tarmer on
sunn- occasions. He is Earl Mar*
ihnl aiui and chief butler ol England
by virtue ol his ancestry, and i:
known world-wide as a most devout
Roman Catholic. He was postmaster general tor 1805 to IsuO, and ai
lieu.eiiaiit-cnlotiel ol the Swssex regi
ment served in the South African
war. He was lirst mayor ol West*
tninsler in Uluo, and was mayor of
Sheffield for thrre years, 1805-7. The
titles attached lo the duchv are:
tttlke i.f Norfolk, Earl nl Arundel,
Union Fifzalau, Baron Oswaldestre,
Earl uf Surrey, Earl ol Nortolh,
Huron .'Inn. Baron Maltravers. The
dukedom and the earldom ol Surrey
were cicalrtl in 1183, and the dignit y
i.I earl marshal in 1872. A fresh
creation of the duMom in 1514 com
inemorati-d the English victory at
Flotldon, when Lnrd Hcrries, an an
cestnr nf tho present duchess, was
lulled among the Scots. The great
wealth of the family Is said to have
begun with the appropriation during
Henry VIll.'s reign ol the property
uf Ihe bishopie ol Norwich. Todav
I lie Duke ol Norfolk owns 50,000
acres, the chiel estates being between the Thames Einabnkment nnd
lhe Strand, at .Sheffield, and at
Arundel and l.iitlehampton. Tbe
town mansion is Norfolk House, St.
James's Square, the Sheffield one
Beech Hill, and there is a Perbvshlre
property, Berwent Hall.
SIR   ROBERT REID
Sir Robert Gillespie Reid who died
a low days ago at Ottawa was the
Seo.sman who was dictator ol Newfoundland, and who probably owned
more land than any other man ln
the world, Sir Robert's career was
a strange one. Born at Coupar Angus, in Scotland, in 1840, he emigrate! to Canada in 1868. Alter
trying his fortunes at gold digging in
Australia and California, he went to
Newfoundland and made rapid progress as a contractor and railway
pioneer. In 1891 tbe government ol
the colony was in great financial difficulties, and the clever Scotsman at
once offered timely help, and tn 18u»
executed his master stroke, the [anions "Reid contract" with the government. By this document he became
owner of tbe colony's docks, railways,
telegraphs, postal services, mining
and lumber rights, and 4,000-,000
neres nl land, nnd became, generally
known iu consequence as "Ciar--
Rold. He obtained the whole at
price said to be onfr-tilrd ol their
probable value, lint the government
was losing money annually on the
various enterprises, and the "Reid
contract" saved it Irom Ihe gravest
.llfllciiltles. Mr. lleid, as be then
was, fnr he was knighted only a year
ago, received 2,500 acres ot land lor
each mile ol government railway
bulll. llis total landed estate Is
said In have amounted at one time
lo 27,000 square miles. Ilis total
expenditure In connection with the
contract with the government was
tnuo.nno. Having acqulivd these
vast enterprises, Mr. Reid set himsell
in reorganize Ihem nnd turn them
Irom unprovable to paving concerns.
In this he was very largely successful. Since then the colony has spent
large sums in repurchasing ils nights
Irom Sir Robert IMd. The posts
and telegraphs have been bought back,
and the railways revert (o the government in 1951.
