other provincial convention ol the

In supporting Ihe resolution Mr
Halpli Smith announced that he was
not a candidate for leader at this
convention. Mr. Taylor, seconded
by Mr. John Hart, then nominated
Mr. Brewster; Mr. Ferguson, of Nelson, nominated Mr. M. A. Macdonald, but the latter, in an eloquent
speech declined the honor of nomination.
Mr. Ferguson then withdrew the
nomination ami Mr. Brewster was
elected unanimously.
DISCUSS NEW TREATY.
Under t 1m» new Japanese treaty
recently entered Into by the Borden
government, it was clearly brought
out in tbe convention that Japanese
in this province may successfully
claim the franchise.
It was shown that the treaty and
the correspondence which accompanied it, ]>'.it the Japani.,*. ..**i, i jtbsol
lite equality with British subjects
and those of the most favored nations commercially. No discrimination against Japanese Immigration
ran In* exercised under t he new
•treaty.
The convention unanimously adopted a resolution reaffirming and pledging the party to women's suffrage. A
delegation of ladies was enthusiastically received, three ol whom delivered instructive addresses in wQilch
warm appreciation of the conscientious action was expressed.
IMPORTANT BKSdl.t Tins
An important resolution condemning the amalgamation of banks, the
operation ol nuxtliarj Irusl companies and tbe recent amendment to the
banti act, under which exorbitant
rates of Interest maj be extorted
from unfortunate borrowers, was
adopted,
other resolutions dealt with tlie
land registry offices, discharged prls-
oners, Indian lauds, the bank aol
the license net, Japanese Immigration, segregated vice and Ihe Cana*,
dlnn Northern railway.
A resolution urging thai the districts nominate con*, ent ions (or both
local and Dominion houses be called
as early ns   possible and candidates
put in thi- Held, was adopted,
fin wt'i'.s \iii-: noon.
Tbe financial condition of  tin* oi-
gatitfatlon  was repotted lo hi* in
good shape, ihe committee being oh*
llrelj nut ol debt and not owing ,i
dollar,     hi   the discussion which   en
sued     many expressions of appreciation made hy   the   delegates nnd     e
•special tribute was paid la Field Hr-'
guni/cr W. N. Baer.
It was the opinion of lhe convention that there should In* a change in
the system ol representation in    tho
province, but the majority wen*
hardly prepared to do so tar as tn
endorse the recall.
Mr. Baer pointed out that there
was at least a pressing need Tor proportional representation; Thia reform, he declared, would do nway
with many of the political evils
which an* now bearing so hard on
lhe people of British Columbia.
ENDORSE PRINCIPLES.
Eventually tlw matter was referred
to two committees.
On the motion of Br. WolveiTon, a
resolution was carried thnt "this
convention endorses the principles nf
the initiative, the referendum and recall, and of proportional representation, and that two committees ot
three consider the first three, and
one committee the lasl, such committees to report to the next convention."
It wan pointed out by Mr. McKln
l»y, ut Alberni, that the small mill
men had been crushed out because of
the big tax they had to pay for lumber. They 'could not compete with
the speculators to whom tbe Mc-
Bridc-BowsiT people had  sold the
limits, lie believed Hunt the Liberals of the province should endorse a
return to the principles existing he-
fore the McBride government put a
meddling linger into the question,
NO TIMBER LEFT.
"What's the use," said someone in
the audience. "The McBride government has disposed of all the timber
in the province. There's no room
anywhere for little mill men."
After a long discussion, ho\Vever,
it was decided that it was impossible tu return to the old system
That, as Dr. Wolvorton had said
would mean confiscation, and would
strike a vital blow at the credit and
good future of the province. This Was
generally recognized and the platform of last year ou the timber
question was reaffirmed.
When the convention resumed in Ilia
afternoon, rt delegation of the local
Equality league, headed by Mrs.
Sturdy, president of thn local
branch, by invitation ot the convention, was received and introduced by
Mrs. .1. C. Kemp, president of the
Provincial Equality League.
Mis. Sturdy and Mrs. Coursicr
each read papers appreciative <if tbe
aetioir of tbe convention in adopting
the suffrage plank. The delegation
consisted nf about a do/.en RcVel-
stoke ladies.
Mrs. Kemp thanked the convention
fur its action nnd dealt with various
disabilities under whieh women   and
children labor hy reason     of th.
rocious laws of this province.
The league had simply wasted its
time in petitioning the present government. After a great ileal nf effort in securing tlte signatures of 20,-
(100 to a petition, it had been thrown
into the waste paper basket. unwept, unhonored and unsung, .is one
paper put it.
Mis. Kemp touched upon tb,. inheritance, Infants' guardianship, divorce, deserted wives and other laws,
all of which she severely criticised
The ladies were tbanked by a unanimous motion and given three hearty
cheers, ihe convention singing 'Tltey
are iolh good fellows,"
On resumption o! the adjourned debate on tlu* Japanese Immigration
resolution, Mr Duncan Boss said
tbat in l!)us the Conservatives bad
raised a tremendous bowl
langenicnls made by the Laurier government to restrict Japanese immigi*
atimi. and they had ever (orgcd tele-
grama by ono of which tbey had defeated Hon. William Templemun
I Inn      K.      I,.    Borden    bail stated
clearly ami without equivocation 'hat
the i.emirii\ arrangement was working entirely satisfactory, yet he had
entered into ., treaty whieh, hy the
rm respondent upon which th«
treat", is based atul hy which it is Interpreted, entirely negatived nil the
protection secured hy our own Immigration laws.
In his lettei lo the Japanese eon.
Bill, Ml. Borden bad absolutely given

hns to do is to become a British subject and    llure is no law to prevent
over Japanese immigration in Canada. All tbe other British Columbia memhers either voted, for it or
paired their votes.
"Wc must raise the fiery cross,"
continued Mr. Ross, "and e.irry this
light into every nook and coiner nf
this province for we arc facing the
gravest situation which has ever risen in the question of Oriental immigration. Not only is a white
British Columbia threatened, but the
white ballot box is also in peril. '
IS NO HARDSHIP.
Captain Worsnop, said that in opposing the ownership of land hy Japanese, no hardship was imposed upon
tho Japanese for tbey had the same
laws in Japan. No British subject
could tata up land in that country,
a corporation might own land for
business purposes hut for no other.
Secretary Campbell presented his
report on the work of the organization during tbe past year showing a
very satisfactory condition in the
party's organization throughout tin
province. A tremendous amount of
work had been accomplished, he said,
but much yet remained to lie done.
The following for the year were
elected by acclamation'.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier—Hon. President
M-. A. Macdonald—President.
Ralph Smith—First Vice-President.
Br. J. II. King—Second Vioe-J're-

GIVES SO PROTECTION,
A Liberal member in the house had
put the question straight to Mr.
Borden and had asked if the treaty
would interfere with existing provincial legislation, and Mr. Borden had
replied he did not follow of any provincial legislation that would be at-
fee ted. Yet, continued Mr. Boss,
there was nothing in the treaty
which would protect provincial legislature.
"Then," asked Mr. Ross, "where
was the doughty member of New
West-minster? He wns dumb as nn
oyster." ^M	
"Where was Mr. W. II. Stevens,"
he continued, "who went into hyster-
Wardncr, the undefeated champions
nf the Crows Nest Pass, met their
Waterloo last Sunday, when a number of players from Cranhrook visited there and bent them 7—2. This
was the first game lost this season
hy the Wardner team and on account
of Ihe other teams of Hie Pass not
being able to interest them Mr,,T.
Hcddigan of this city decided to take
a few of the local players down and
give them a game. It was a "walkaway for Cranbrook from tho start
The feature of the game was the battery work for Cranbrook of Calvin
ami Stinson and the errorless support
given them. Only four hits were
made off Calvin and only lor a Hy
ball lost by McNabb Wardner would
have been shut out. The battery for
Wardner was Lund and Brown. Three
runs were made by Cranbcook in the
lirst Inning.
The Wardner team have new uniforms for the season ami make a
very bright and neat appearance, and
showed off in great contrast to the
Cranhrook players, who were dressed
in various sorts of uniforms, from ordinary street clothes to variegated
regalias of several complexions,
Many of the players had never played
together before. This was the first
game of the season for the Cranbrook hoys and Manager Hcddigan
feels very much encouraged by the
showing made hy his tram and if tlie
grounds can lie placed In shape could
arrange for a number of games here
tfhis season.
Crnnbrooki has always hail a   large

Had the public been, thoroughly
aware of tbe unusual amount of musical ability gathered together by
thc Cranbrook Choral Society, we
are certain the Auditorium on last
Friday evening would not have housed the crowd. There was not a very
large crowd present, in fact, it is
said that the society lust several
dollars tin the venture, but those wbn
were present thoroughly enjoyed the
excellent programme rendered. There,
were thirty-nine voices in the chorus'
and they had been very effectively
trained under the directorship of Mr.
0. W. Loubach.
Our   thanks ore renewed to       tlie
mombcra of   this society for tbe production of the   (ieisba, the Citigalee,

what they    can do   in the matter 0|
choral   singing    when   they   have a
mind thereto.     Tbey scored another
success.     Thc   concert of     Friday
evening last   was of a high-class order,    without any semblance of       a
descent to musical flippancies or ragtime brutalities ou which the kiddies
of the rising generation—as one    can
hardly help thinking—are being dandled, and hushed to sleep.     What   can
one expect of a kid put to sleep on
ragtime melody   where the Alabama
coon rhymes   with   moon nnd spoon,
with a sneeze and a breeze, ami    thti
trees, beyond bis figuring at the end
of a minstrel show with a tambourine or a pair of cluppers'.'
The concert opened wilh "The Song

Pinsuti gave a deathless setting to
the serenade from Longfellow's
"Spanish Student," "floor! Night.
Beloved."      Tills veiv   beautiful  piece
of choral composition is sung .the
whole world round and well deserves
to be. Last Friday evening its must
cal deservings had full recognition
lis rhythm, somehow, conjures up a
night seem* in some tpuiinl. nld
Spanish eity with a group of serenaded mule* the window of the Gypsy
beauty. The last few bars hint nl
tlieir passing onward Until only the
barest whisper of their melody is
heard. Some say the march from
Tannhauser, "Hail Brlglil Abode"
was the finest effort of all. It was
decidedly fine, but honors will best
be divided between "O (Jladson
Light" and   "Good Night,  Beloved."
The accompaniments throughout,
were excellently rendered by Mrs. Irn
Manning. Very special thanks nnd
praise are due to this lady for the
deep and what is of greater importance, the verv practical aid sin*
brings to the Choral Society and all
its undertakings.
Considerable, credit is .due to Mr.
Geo. F. Stevenson for tbe organization and business management of the
society.
After the promrauimo the Edison
orchestra furnished music for a dance
and all the crowd remained. Dancing
was indulged in until 2 o'clock a.m.

ABOUT KLKO AND CRANBROOK,

Mr. Horn tells about Klko, a busy
little place nn the line of the Crows
Nest branch of the C.P.R. Elko is
Just forty miles west of the Pass
and about fifty miles east of Cranbrook, a divisional point of th- C.P.
IL, with a population of lUe thousand inhabitants, whith fo rapidly
coming to the front as an agricultural and fruit growing country. Upwards of sixty thousand fruit trees
were planted in the Cranbrook district tbis spring. Elko, is served,
too, by passenger and freight trains
of tbe Greal Northern, which gives H
connection with ihe railway systems
of thc United states over its own
line, and besides this Elko is the
southern terminus ol the Kootenay
Central railway. Tins line is now
under construction and it Is In operation as f.ir as Fori  Steel*. The

Ilotchkiss, < provincial statistician
This brings the population <>f the
province to approximate!) a hall
million people, the gain in 11112 being
21 per cent. It is believed that tins
percentage will be largely exceeded
iu 1913, on account <■( the work
which the International Pry Farming
Congress did for the province last
fall. The seventh annual congress

TIk* C p. H is not the only company that is feverishly ■buildim; lines

radiate in every direction and when
all these are completed the interior
will have as many main and branch
lines a* the eastern provinces and
states.
Tbe Canadian Northern Bail way
proposes to link il? system together
with a line through the lower sections of the province and will pass
through the North Kootenay or
Crow's Neat Pass. It will parallel
the Weyburn-I^ethbridne line through
territory lurther south and it is
already building a line from Maeleod
through the North Kootenay Pass in
a south and west direction. It appears that ihis branch will run down
Che n«rth fork of the Wigwam to
Klko and sooner or lau-r this line
must reach that town becavsc of its
position in the Kootenay-t'olum'bia
valley.
THE C. T. P. TO COME.
The Grand Trunk Pacific has surveyed a route through tbe Crows
Nest Pass and will extend its Calgary line in that direction. Again
Klko looms up as an Important point
on this line and merely from fts geographical position it is apparent that
the Grand Trunk will bufld into the
town.
Still another lin,. will be built
through tbe valley to the rich coal
fields which Klko commands there.

It's always an easy thing to stand
hack and   criticise, watching another
fellow chop wood or tix the eailitire^
er, but   when    you get on   the   Job
yourself tind your      work* is cut   out
for ynu.     But, nevertheless at     thc
recent Liberal   convention held      at
Kcvelstoke lust week sn many blunders of   tbe   McBride   administration
were pointed     out, so many  narrow
policies   were   thorough!)   aired,        it
was shown thai  sn many laws    are
made for the heiietit ol the moneyed
interests and the ruthless speculator
and so many times the great masses
have been overlooked, tho .small timber owner has been eliminated,    thc
farmer   has been   handicapped,  alien
labor is pouring in—read the bill   o|
particulars—until wc aro really won
tiering if it wouldn't be a good tilting
for the   country In give   the     other
fellow a chance at the job for awhile.
Premier .McBride has made a mess of
his land policy, he has badly blundered witli regard to Lho limber policy,
and the greal province is steadily r

something musl bo done. A horde  of
Bugologisls and long-haired sclent

HAS ACCEPTED CALL TO SPECIAL WORK by BRITISH COLUMBIA     BAPTIST CONVENTION.
At the close of the morning service in the Baptist church last Sunday, Rev. C. W. King, the pastor,
presented his resignation to accept a
call to special work by the board of
the British Columbia Baptist convention. This action came as
somewhat of a surprise to most nf
the congregation. Mr. King consulted with his fellow executive officers last week when the invitation
came from Vancouver headquarters
and accepted the call.
Mr. King was ordained to the ministry about twenty years ago in
Kingston, Ont., where he remained
for six years. President of his ordaining council was Rev. Br. E.
Hooper, who occupied the pulpit in
Nelson for a brief term, immediately
preceding Mr. King. He also sprv-
eil as minister of the Parliament St.
church, Toronto, for six years, resigning there to succeed Br. S. S.
Bates as field secretary under the.
Toronto Baptist church extension
board in a $25/100 forward movement to organize suburban work, resulting in tbe establishment of six
new interests, some of which arc
now among the most successful of the
;if> eh inches in that association. Mr.
King also held pastorates in Woodstock, Out., and iu Cranbrook, B.C.
In all of his pastorales but one he
has seen substantial increase in
membership, the financial side of the
work moro Hum doubled and the
church edifices enlarged or improved.
Mr. King expects to leave Nelson
some time in .June.

YANKEE ROBINSON'S
CIRCUS WILL BE
IE1EJEH MONDAY
Spring, then tin- bluebirds and robins, then tin* league opens, and the
circus, and then the fun is all over,
for circus day comes but once a
year. The small hoy often wonders
why the mammoth tented institutions don't stay a week or nore lii.e
the smaller tent shows, or why in
i* circus don't sta,
tlfe*|)iet.!ire shows,
would be nice, the small hoy thinks,
but the circus would fare badly.
A big tented city must keep ou
moving or fail to exist, for aUI.o*i|;li
a great many cannot be made to acknowledge it, the fact remj.ui tli.il
the big circuses leave behind them
about as much as they lake aw^y.
combining what they spend directly
and what the. hundreds of attaches
drop with the local merchant lhe
big show has to stop here today and
there tomorrow, and w oi. contliw*-
ously hunting new pastures and novo
stops to rest.
Tlie Yankee Robinson shows will
visit this city and two performances
arc to be given, the afternoon show
bej!|iuuing at 2 o'clock and the night
performance commencing promptly at
8 o'clock; doors open exactly an
hour before each exhibition to allow
visitors to inspect the menagerie, aud
enjoy the concert by Prof. Theo
Stout's hand of solo artists.
The street parade will leave tho
show grounds at 10 a.m., traversing
the principal streets and returning to
the show grounds, where, in th:1
open air and absolutely free to all
who care to see it, will be given a
startling and sensational free exhibition.
The Yankee Robinson circus is
opening its road season of 1013 in
better shape in every particular than
ever lieforc, every little Ibing about
the show, from the tent stakes up,
being brand new, easily giving the
show .inst claim to the title of "the
most modern circus in the world."
The programme this year will he 'a
marvel in itself, a revelation lo the
business and circus-goers the country
over. People know the ltobinson
show, know its qualities and its
cleanliness and the organization
which has been enlarged anil perfected
for tne season of 1013 will be an even
greater credit to that famoifs of all
show names, "Robinson."
It will exhibit under waterproof
canvas, affording ample protection
and comfort in case of inclement
weather, at t'ranbrook next Monday.

GROWING. .    I
Those win. are familiar with the
history of apple growing In Canada
an* aWare thai single Immmcl ll hAs
been verj difficult, yes, almost ini;
possible, to succeed in orcharding in*
yond a few trees, and that only since
co-operation became n strong factor
in the enterprise bus the industry become established on a permanent and
prosperous basis. During the last j
decade of the past century it was no
uncommon thing in parts of Ontario
to  see      splendid      orchards  chopped
down fin- firownotl, Growers could
gel little more for Iheir fruil v Ihan
the actual expenses incurred iu producing it ami so ibe industry had
little to justify ils continuance. It
was under these circumstances lhal
as a last resort the co-operative
movement in the industry began.
That it has succeeded and with 11
the commercializing of the apple Industry oil a large scale there can ho
no manner id doubt, as already there
have been organized throughout Canada no less than 100 co-operative
societies at)(I the number is con

To outline in more or less detail
the principles nf co-operation-, the
more desirable methods In adopt in
putting these principles into practice
and the objects Ih he gained Ini apple

been prepared by Mr. Alex. McNeil.
chief or the fruit division, who is recognized as one of the fnrcmost authorities of lho day on the subject
nf fruit culture, commerce and co-,
operation.
In this work of Hi pages the suh-
ject is treated from practically
every standpoint that interests the
Canadian apple grower. Not onlj
are the essentials and methods of
co-operation dearly broughi oul, bul
the advantages being derived through
its agency arc clearly shown. The
aims of co-operation as applied t„
the fruit industry are enumerated as
follows:
la). To bring fruit products as
directly as possible from Ihe producer
to tin* consumer.
(b). To encourage the hest meth
ods of production.
(c). To encourage thrift iu lhe
fruit grower, and economy, Intelligence, enterprise and honesty in the
packing, grading and marketing of
fruit.
(d). To make it possible for a
number of small growers lo establish
a commercial standing that will be .1

(c). To act as A credit organization io make advances nn products in
the process of being sold.

which confronts enery kind of farming il is shown 1 hat Nova Scotia

of a crop twice the usual size.

light :i very good story, in which   a l
gentltTtntU)    who is   now in business
hero played a prominent part.
Somo years ago when Sir Rlcnard
McGrldo—ho was then plain Dick
McBriUo — was on our of his campaigning lours, In* mot in one of tin*
Boundary towns a clothing salesman
named L. I). Blreloy, Thoro is ,i
marked resemblance in lho features
nml stature nf tho two men. Wero
Sir Richard shorn of bis flowing
lucks the likeness would be all the
more striking. Thc fact that Mr,
McBrldo bad mel his double, ma-do
him .-ill tin* moro eager to sock the
companion ship of thc salesman as
much as possible. Their dates in
lho various towns in tho Boundary
and Kootenay districts were Identical, ami they traveled together.
Many ludicrous instances of mistaken
Identity took place.
When tbey reached Movie, Mr.
Blreloy entered Dob Campbell's
Clothing sloie with the intention of
soiling him a big bill of g is. Premier McBrldo also walked Into the
store, but be kept at some distance
behind tin* salesman?, Mr. Camp
boll knew thai tbe premier was due
In the town, lie had never heafd ol
tho salesman. II was therefore
(|tiite natural that Mr, Campbell
should rush up from the rear of tho
store to Mr. Bircley and groel htm
as Premier McBrldo.
Mr. Blreloy played lho role ol tin*
premier quite naturally, ami spend
half an hour iu an unsuccessful attempt to convert .Air. Campbell lo
Conservatism. Then Mr. Campbell
introduced the pseudo premier to bis
two clerks. These men were from
Ontario, and did not require eon
version. After a general conflab on
tho imlitieal situation, Mr. BIrelcj
introduced the real premier 1o Mr.
Bircley as the commercial trov
oiler.
Tho travesty was played to the
last act. In the evening Richard
McBride took Mr. Campbell to Mr.
Bircley's sample room and sold him
an order of goods, while Mr. Blreloy
attended to tho political wire pulling.
The latter lask was Uio mole dilli-

The
REDUCTION IN ELECTRIC RATES
l.UiHTINf.    AND   POWER RATES
RIUDUOED   .JUNE FIRST AT
EDMONTON,
Edmonton, Alta., .lune -i.—l'sers
of electricity for ligbling and power
purposes will lie tin* first to benefit
directly   trom Ha*   municipal owner-
ship of public utilities in Edmonton
by a reduction of from 12A to 35 per
cent in rates, effective early in .lune.
A. W. Oiinsby, superintendent of the
department, which has a surplus of
more than $11)0,000, today recommended a cut of 12A per cent in
light rates, now,eight cents per k.w.
hour, nml 25 per cent reduction iu
power rates, now four cents, with a
sliding scale for manufacturing concerns. The commissioners favor the
cut.
The total profits of all the publicly-owned utilities in Edmonton was
$00,000 last year. The street railway
reported a large deficit on account of
extraordinary charges and extensions
ami improvements, but the light and
power departments earned more than
sufficient to cover the losses. The
waler department was operated at a
profit. pThe cily charges $1 for 25
tickets, good at all hours, with universal transfer; labor tickets, good
during certain hours in the morning
and evening, eight for 25 cents, aud
student's tickets, good at all hours,
twelve for 25 cents. Twelve million
passengers were carried in KU2, as
against  l,KI2,lflfl in 1000.
Mayor William Short, who ist also
chairman of the board of city commissioners, said today that reductions will be made in other departments as soon as possible. The street
railway showed a slight profit in
April, he added, and it is expected
that this will be increased with lower power charges. Ten miles of lines
will he built and placed in operation
during tbis year.
NOT BET DRUNK
AWARDED   VERDICT   AND DAMAGES KOR SIX CENTS IN
LIBEL SUIT,
Marquette, Mich., Juno 2.—In, the
elaborate but small court room of
tbis frontier, Theodore Roosevelt appeared in w bat is probably an unique
occasion in history when in effect In*,
although a former president !if lliij
I'nited States, defended himself mulct)
oath against the allegation of drunkenness, His direct testimony took
about an hour ami cross examination
immediately began. In substance
Colonel Roosevelt defended himself as
a man of complete sobriety, although
not a total abstainer. The leading
points in his testimony may be quoted as follows:
"I am not a total abstainer; T
have never drank a highball or a
cocktail in my life. 1 do not smoke
ami I do not. drink beer and I    don't
drink red wine.
"I have never drank whiskey or
brandy except when the doctor prescribed it or possibly on sonic occasion after great exposure when I
was chilled through,
"The only wines I have drank have
heen white wines, Maduria champagne or very occasionally a glass of
sherry. Al borne at dinner I often
drink a glass or two of white wine
and Poland water.
"At public dinners I sometimes
drink a glass of champagne or perhaps two. On an average I may
drink one glass of champagne a
month.
"There was a fine mint bed at the
White House anil I may have drank
half a dozen mint julips there in a
year.
"Since leaving the White House 1
think I have tasted mint julips 1wicc(
part of a glass at St. Louis and a
sip of a loving cup at Little Bock,
Ark."
When Col. Roosevelt remarked that
he might hnve drank a half doz.cn
mint julips in a year at the White
House a titter went round when Attorney Pound on direct examination
asked if ho drank tbem all at one
time or more than one nt a time.
To tho best of plaintiff's recollection he bad never in his life taken
more than one on the same occasion.
An array of witnesses comprising
many of the best known men In the
United Slates wen* on the stand for
Teddy either in person or by deposition and at Hie conclusion of Hie
plaintiff's case, Kditor Newett ot th'n
Iron Age, wbo was the defendant in
the case, was called to tbe stand
and read a statement in which ho
said thai tlie arliele was written in
good faith from hearsay evidence
gathered between Michigan, California and Montana aud on a trip to
Florida, white be heard the accusation repeatedly made and no one at-
tempted to deny. on, returning
home in tin* beat of lhe campaign he
found bis lifelong friend, q prominent
slate official, had heen al lacked by
Mr. Roosevelt, whereupon lie sat
down and wrote the article, beliovlhg
it to in* true, lie further believed it
to be true until lie bad beard the
plaintiff's evidence In the trial and
coupled With bis own inability to secure evidence, believed now that he
had made a mistake.
Following tne reading of his admission, Mr. Roosevelt said ho waived
any monetary damages, and the judgtj
Instructed tho jury to bring a verdict
in for Mr., Roosevelt, which they did
without leaving tlieir seats and he
was awarded the verdict and damages in the amount of six cents.
Tbe trial was full of dramatic incidents. Editor Newett sat through
the trial, although very ill atul under
a doctor's care.
HAMLET UP TO DATE.
llorden's Soliloquy.
To bo or not to be, that is the question.
To he, I mean, truo to the speech   1
made,
Or not to bo; to   flunk and eat     my
words,
And   writq    myself  a turncoat and
poltroon.
That is   the question:     is there not
rant shame
In the mere fact   itself   that    there
could be
A ground   for    argument   in such a
case?
For I can well suppose a normal man
Of    judgment, character   and moral
sense,
At liberty to act on his free will.
Would scorn to hold debate upon     a
point
So obvious and self-evident; he would
say
"The doubt insults me. What I spoke
was true
And worthy a Canadian patriot;
And being of the same opinion still
Within    my.    heart ot   hearts, why
should I now
Turn traitor to myself, and do    despite
To my fair reputation? Can it bo
A free man will besmirch himself?"
Alas!
I am no free   man, and   the normal
rules
Are altered   in my case; some power
malign
lias wrought    a closure o'er       my
thoughts and acts
And holds me iu base slavery.     But
thc shame
Of this disgraceful serfdom is    mine
own;
I sold the mastery of my mind away:
Bargained it off for a brief lease    of
power,
As Esau sold his birthright for    the
mess
Of transient    pottage; in my bitterness
I think poor     Esau made the better
trade,
For he at least got something       ho
could eat
To satisfy his hunger; what have I
To show   for    payment so extravagant?
A Premiership, ye say? The dignity
And splendor of high office, with   reward
Of   praise and   honor for its   heavy
cares?
Aye, in a case like Lauder's; hut  in
mine
New cares   ami    burdens,   irksome,
odious tasks
That he knew nothing of; that     tow
have known;
A thorny    path   of  subterfuge   and
trick
That doth revolt my stomach; crooked acts
And   measures    that are   mean and
base
Forced on me hy the bold, unscrupulous will
Of colleagues   who imperiously    dictate;
Scandals and action indefensible,
Which 1 must   still defend and gloss
wilh words
My inmost soul abhors, mnlil I see
My name, that once wns honored    in
the land,
Scuffled and     kicked   about aud idly
t ossed
As   something]    light ami worthless;
'tis a price
To pay for office, that I truly feel
Makes   Esau's   trade     a   profit abb-
deal!

TRACTOR PASSES   AWAV
AT CALGARY.
-John  Breckenridge, thc well known
railway and irrigation contractor   of
Calgary, passed   away at 9,30    last
Thursday    morning at tho Columbia
hospital, tbe   immediate cause    " of
death being) pneumonia.      Mr. Breckenridge took ill just slightly      over
two months ago.    lie was taken    to
the hospital and an operation for gall
stones being   found necessary,       bis
private physician,  Dr. Mewburn,     ol
lethbridge, who was at that time in
New York, was summoned. A special
train was chartered,    and Dr. Mew-j
burn was   rushed at top speed      to
Calgary.        It    was   a race between
life and   .death, tho|surgeon arriving'
just in time lo perform the operation
and save   Mr. Breckenridge's life for
the time being.    A second, operation
was found necessary about a     week
later, however.      The patient rallied
from this successfully, but a few days!
after pneumonia set in and in      Mr.1
Breckenridge's    weak     condition, his
system was unable to throw this off. I
He is survived by a widow and one1
daughter, Miss Alta Breckenridge. A j
brother, William Brcckicnridge, of:
Chicago, was with Mr. Breckenridge
at the last. Another brother living
in Peterborough, Ont., will likely
come to Calgary for the funeral.
! for three years he was employed at
the William Hamilton Foundry,company at Pelerhoro.
In the spring ol 1883 he went west
to Winnipeg and from thenco went
out upon bis lirst experience in railroad building—along the north shore
of Luke Superior. In the following
year Mr. Hieckenridge began tho contracting business on bis own account.
WELL KNOWN CONTRACTOR.
i hi-
lWr. Breckenridge was one of
best known and most successful contractors in Canada, having) had
charge of many important, undertakings, notably the c.p.R. Irrigation
system in the province of Alherta,
which took five years to complete.
His firm has also had charge of the
C.N.It. construction from Edmonton
west through the Yellowhead Pass to
Port Mann. In addition ho was
connected with many large industrial
and mining and other enterprises.
BORN IN SCOTLAND.
Mr. Breckenridge wan horn iu Ayrshire, Scotland, May HO, 1801. His
father, William Breckenridge, a native ol Ayrshire, removed with Ills
family to Petorboro, Ontario, in
1807, and was a successful contractor, and builder. lie died April 21,
19llfi. The mother, Margaret King
Breckenridge, also a native of Ayrshire, died April 28, 1910. John
Breckenridge received his education
in/tho public schools of Pelerhoro,
after which he was engaged in the
lumbering business for two or three
years. In 1879, at the age of 18,
the young uum decided to learn
bollermaking and foundry work    and
WORK   IN  MONTANA.
Early In 1880 Mr. Hieckenridge
under!oak some Important mainline
construction work on the Northern
Pacific, railroad between Kllensburg
and Tacoma. requiring his constant
attention from •lune, 1880, until
May, 1897. Much of bis heavy construction work in the succeeding levy
| years was dour in the Kootenay
country, in and around Nelson, Brit-1
I ish Columbia, in partnership with
\ Peter Lund, including tho construction of the Crow's N'est Pass line and
other Canadian Pacific branches in
Hritish Columbia nnd Alberta. One.
of the most remarkable pieces of railroad construction accomplished by
Mi. Breckenridge iu those days was
the building) of lhe C.P.R. line across
the Frank slide, ;l difficult piece of
construction work one ami three-
fourths miles in length, which was
finished within .sixteen days.
ORGANIZED LUMBER COMPANY.
In 1002 Mr. Breckenridge and Mr.
Lund organized lhe well known
Crow's Ne.st Pass Lumber company,
of which Mr. Hieckenridge was president from 1002 to 1000. In 1903
tbey organized the Breckenridge and
Lund Coal company and Mr. Breckenridge was president of it until 1907.
The railroad contracting linn -of
Breckenridge and Lund, active from
18117 till 1007, was q powerful factor
in the railroad and industrial development of British Columbia and Alberta iu all tho years of ils existence.
In 190*1 Air. Breckenridge came to
Alljerla and took charge of the Canadian Pacific Railway company's extensive system of irrigation canals, a
work that occupied nearly live years'
lime, being completed in 1008. In the
last mimed year Mr. Breckenridge
through Ibe purchase of Mr. Lund's
interest, became sole owner and head
of the great contracting concern. In
