Special Exhibit of Ores of this Section for Spokane
At Tuesday ovonlng's meeting ol
the hoard of trade special consideration wan glvott to llie ljUOStdoil nl
preparing a district exhibit of ores
(or the .Spokane fair, in ihis connection the following cotniniinlcnlioii
from Mr. Joseph Ryan in llic president of the lioard was road:
Cranlirook, B.C., 30th .July, 'IU.
It. T.    Brymner,   Ksu.,    president
lioard of Trade, City!
Dear Sir:
I had a letter today from 13. W.
Widdowson, assayer, Nelson, asking
that an exhibit of ore from this district he. prepared for the Vancouver
show of next month.
It is uot possible to f.-,ri a representative exhibit ready at such siiort
notice; aud I would, therefore, sug-
gest to your lioard that preparations
he made to have a collection assembled anil shown at Spokane in
October. There .vould not lie much
trouble in having first-class show-
samples from the St. Eugene, Society tiirl, Aurora, North Star and
Sullivan, hut what would produce
the greatest effect on the public mind
would lie an exhibit ot ores from
a practically unknown and almost
entirely unprospeclcd district—I refer to the valley .if tiic St. Mary's
river west of Marysville.
By constant hammering a few of us
succeeded in inducing the Dominion
government to send in Mr. SchoOeld,
ot the Geological Survey, to report
on the countrv.     He is there now.
I hint Professor Walker, of the chair
uf mining and geology in the Toronto
University, with mo on yesterday enquiring as to a deposit of molybdenite found on tho old I'itot Hay trail.
I have arranged with the professor
lo visit that claim next month, to
sample the lead and report ou the
geological conditions of the formation in which this exceedingly rare
and valuable ore is found. 1 know a
gold-COppet property hi the same district from which I could tiling out
pieces of solid ore 0x3x2 feet and
weighing a ton.
1 Then there arc the ores from tlie
| Kvans group, Pollen's claimr, the
{Dominion Consolidated, (Ireat Dune,
Welcome, .Malachite and so on.
I should hu glad of an opportunity
of speaking to your hoard ou this
subject.
Yours very truly,
Joseph Ryan.
Mr. Ryan was present at the meeting and hy request spoke to the subject matter of his letter. Ue said
lhat in accordance with his promise
to Professor Walker he intended
shortly visiting tlie mineral properties in St. Mary's valley and would
he pleased to do his utmost to secure a representative selection of
ores for the Spokane exhibit. This
proposition was heartily endorsed
nml on motion it was decided to accept Mr. Ryan's proposition and to
defray any expense he may incur iu
the carrying out of the work.

FORT STEELEJINING DIVISION
Belated Minister of Mines' Report on St. Eugene and other Moyie
Lake Properties
The report of the minister of mines
for 1009 has only just come lo band.
Year after year tlie press of the
province, practically unanimously,
voices the views of those interested
in the mining industry in expressing
dissatisfaction with the dilatory
methods pursued by the mines department iu the preparation of this
annual review, which should be of
great value in advertising to the
world the mineral resources of this
province. Hut all to no avail, year
after year, the report is issued
months ufter the facts recorded
therein have ceased to be of practical interest to those concerned in
the mining industry. That there is
no valid excuse for such dilatory
methods is amply demonstrated hy
the work done hy '.be Nelson Daily
News, which for several years past
in the first week of the new year bus
published a very full summary of the
mining progress of the past year. A
summary prepared by a competent
and entirely trustworthy authority
on mining in this province. What a
small daily paper, with its limited
financial resources, can accomplish
should offer no insuperable difficulty
to the provincial government authorities, if the minister of mines could
be brought to appreciate the importance of early nublicatioa of the government review. From the latest report we reproduce below certain references to the mines in this locality, in reading which the reader
must bear in mind that these references were prepared probably from
nine to ten months ago and con.
sequent!)- do not convey an exact account of conditions at the various
mines referred to today.
From Gold Commissioner J. F.
Armstrong's returns the following
data affecting the Fort Steele mining
division are culled:
Mineral claims recorded  116
Placer claims rccorled        6
Certificates of work    151
Certificates of Improvement Issued Ifi
Mining leases issued     M
Mining leases In force   -10
Free miners' certificalcs issued ...857
Free   miners'    certificates   (company)       -1
Free    miners'  certificates   (special)          2
Crown grants issued   20
The total revenue of the district is
given at $4,720.80, divided as follows: Free miners' certificates,
51,096 00, mining receipts general
$3085,80.
lun ing the year W. F. Robertson,
provincial mineralogist, visited the
Kort Steele mining division, nud reports as follows:
Prospecting for metalliferous deposits in the Fort Steele Mining
Division has --ecu gtadually diminishing, uud during the year 1009 only
11(1 new claims were recorded, as
against 720 in 1800; n similar falling
off i.s noted in the number of certificates of work recorded. Actual
mining, or serious attempts at mining, were found to bt; confined to the
vicinities of Movie lake and Kimherley, and the following mines wen-
visited by the provincial mineralogist during the summer of 1909:
ST. EUGENE] MINK.
The St. Eugene mine, owned and
operated hy the Consolidated .Mining
and Smelting Company of Canada, is
the largest producer of lead in
Hritish Columbia, producing iu mils
about 65 per cent of the total output
of the province for the year, and in
that year mined approximately HiO,-
000 tons of ore, yielding about 8.8
per cent lead and 3.6 OZ. of silver to
the ton. In mil!) the lead produced
was 59.5 per cent cf the total output of the province. The ore mined,
some 117,300 tons, also gave about
8.8 per cent lead ami S.G OZ. of silver to the ton. The ore is galena iti
a quartz gangue with a little zinc
blende, and' is essentially a concentrating proposition, all the ore going to the concentrating mill. The
ore body occupies a fissured /one in a
quartztte (altered slate) formation,
the ore occurring iu somewhat irregular lenses. On either wait of the
main fissure are what might be call
cil separate veins, c. Ji about fi feel
wide, the north and south veins,
connecting which are cross-fissures-—
or, as they are here ealled, "avenues"—probably caused hy the crushing into somcwh'it large regular
blocks of the quart/ite when the
tone was formed. These "avenues''
are more or less parallel aud are at
an acute angle with the main fissure,     and in these    the large orc-
bodles aro found nt or near their
juncture with the main veins; these
ore-bodies are often very large, hating sometimes a width of liO feet or
more. Without exception, the
'avenues" terminate at ihe main
parallel veins, outside the limits' ol
which no important chutes of ore
have as yet been encountered. The
main vein outcrops near the hilltop
on the east side of Moyie lake, about
2,000 feet higher than lhe lake and
5,000 foot to the eastward; the vein
has beeu developed fur all that distance, practically, to the lake shore,
which is the western limit to the
company's properly. Tbe upper part
of the mine, from the highest outcrop driven to the l.SlW fool level,
about 75 feet vertically higher than
the lake, has heen worked hy adit
tunnels, driven in ou the vein. De-
low* this level the mining is done
from a vertical Ihrco-compartmont
shaft (each compartment ;i feet     by
feet in the clear), which lias heen
sunk lu a depth of about 800 feet,
or about 700 feet lower than thu
lake level. From this shaft five levels have been driven—1,600, 2,000,
2,100, 2,200 and 2,1(10; between the
I,Hid aud 1,900 foot levels the distance is 125 leet, while between the
others the distance is 150 feet. The
ore from thu workings at the 100-
foot level and above is delivered to
the mill by an aerial tramway (Rib-
let) some 5,000 feet long; that from
between the 100 aud 1,806 goes down
mine chutes to the l.soo, out of
which it is trammed, coming out at
the shaft, from which point it, together with the ore from the shaft,
is hauled hy electric motor to the
concentrating mill. The 1,366 level
is in on the main vein about 5,200
feet, and the 1,800 level about 4,400
feet from the portal; from the shaft
the workings arc chiefly to the east,
the 2,200 level being driven about
1,000 feet and the 2. IOU level about
100 feet. In the summer of 1UUD
about half the ore heing produced was
from the 2,100 level.
Philip Argall, in the report of the
line commission, says that "the longitudinal section of the veins shows
that the sloping conforms fairly well
lo the contour of the hill, and tbat a
line drawn parallel with the latter

Ile was well \m>wti loi years an an
Ottawa jy-arlfaiucataiy reporter.
Ity  the    reception    it  gave  to Sir
Wilfrid Laurier, Prince Albert excelled herself last Monday During the
day the city was a galaxy of decoration and color, and ul night time
the illuminations pioclainied the nature of tlu* occasion Thousands of
people came into the city to welcome the premier, nnd one notable
feature was the enthusiasm shown
over Sir Wilfrid's visit by the large
number of Indians who live in the
district ol Prince Albert. In the
morning these Indians made the
vanguard of an impressive proceje
sioii, nml the sight of sucb large
groups of Indians, with paint and
feathers, was not nn every day
scene, e\en in this pirt of Canada,
Sir Wilfrid   was shown the sights
of the city, and very remarkable   t
him they were.
Sir Wilfrid's public duties begun
early in th** morning. At 10.30 the
premier nnd lla* members ut the
party were present at a civic reception in the grounds of the city ball,
where a large crowd gathered round
the handstand jn the hope of hearing
Sir Wilfrid. They were not disappointed. The premier was the recipient of several addresses. In one
address the Prince Albert board of
trade expressed their grateful appreciation of the decision arrived at
by the government to improve the
navigation of (he great river of the
north On tlie subject of transportation tbey said: "We wish to point
out (hat owing to Its great distance from (he manufacturing centres and the consequent slowness of
freight transport, the western provinces are even more prejudicially
afleclcd hy the prevailing exorbitant
express charges than are Ihe people
nf Kastcrn Canada. While the hoard
of railway commissioners has the
subject under consideration and mav
he trusted to give us such relief as is
la their    power the   most rOectiial
remedy can be given only by an extension uf the pared post system,
based cm the system so successfully
in operation in th-.' mother land, and
in France and Germany."
The address continued: "Being
largely an agricultural community
whose products are unprotected, and
wbo do not share proportionally with
other portions of Canada iu whatever
advantages arc incident to high tariil
on the manufactured necessities of
life, the people of tbe west arc contributing more than their share to
the revenue of (he Dominion and may
fairly ask for such changes iu lhe
tariff on these r-eceasttle*
as will more equally distribute the
burden of the government and thereby reduce the cost nf living and
make (he west a still more attractive field for the settler
"The board views with greal satisfaction the Immediate construction
of the railway to Hudson Hay and in
view of (he wonderful development of
UsNO western provinces and the assurance -id rapid im lease in the exports, it is obvious that long before
a railway can be constructed there
will lie traltic SUlTcIent to exhaust
tlie capacity of several lines to the
Hay. We respectfully suggest that
your government favorably consider
and encourage the building of a line
lo Hudson Hay from Prince Albert."
The civic address had n tone of
hopefulness which Is characteristic Of
Prince Albert. "As ibis is not the
first time," It said, "you have visit-
led us, we can, Kith not a little
pride, Invite your attention to the
progress which has taken place. Wc
.are fortunate in our location and enjoy many of the natural advantages
, which tend to make a greal city.
. We have around us a splendid agricultural country, well adapted to all
.kinds nl farming Industry and a mag*
■ mlieeiil river, the Mississippi ol the
. north, iconning but relatively little
artificial aid to make it a splendid
waterway from the Rockies to Winnipeg and we congratulate your government on its decision to grant
that aid to the north* In addition
its excellent farming lauds lie
vast timber wealth, and lakes teeming with Osh, while still further
north arc great mineral resources
hitherto inaccessible The wisdom
of opening through Hudson Hay a
shorter route to Europe, which we
are glad to know is fully recognized
by yourself nnd colleagues, linds us
located at the natural gateway to
Hudson Hay. The tiaffie to, and
from the bay will not long be handled by one line of railway and (or
the vast area to Ibe south and
west to the waters of the Pacific
Prince Albert is the natural converging point."
Sir Wilfrid pleased the citizens
with his reply. "Vou ought to Ic
proud, and for my part I am proud
of the city of Prince Albert," be
began. "I do not know what you
think of it, but I will tell you that
one of my party told me this morning that this was the finest city we
have seen since we have left Ottawa." Sir Wilfrid continued, "1
do not care even if 1 repeat this in
Winnipeg. Perhaps it would bring
some (rouble there, hut at all
events I would he prepared to stand
by these.words. The spirit of progress wjich |9 here certainly makes
this city .tViin-™ I" be one ol Pi-f
finest on the continent*."
Sir Wilfrid Laurier said: "When I
come to this the most northerly
portion of the American continent
and see the Immense crowd of Hritish
population, I ."*.'. • .• self how it In
that lhe great nud mighty fabric of
the Hritish empire which extends

GATEWAY'S PROGRESS
Big Irrigation Scheme Underway -
to be brought in
Many Settlers
At the board of trade meeting
Tuesday evening Mayor Fink read
the following letter from a Gateway
settler, telling of prospective development in that section and asking
tho hoard of trade foi their co-operation In securing a free ferry:
Clateway, B.C., July 16, 1910.
Mr. J. P. Kink, Cranbrook, U. ('.:
Dear Friend: We have signed a petition and sent it lo the Hon. 'Iho*.
Caven, through Mr. Armstrong, re-
qtiestlng the government to defray
the expense of operating the government ferry already established.
Ami would like to have you take
this up with the Cranhrook board of
trade, and the Consctvative association, or both. ,
There is a company from Hamilton, Onl., intending to irrigate several hundred acres and move forty
families here, familiar with the fruit
ndustry, und by making this ferry
free it would greatly assist in the
development of the country, as there
are ten   thousand     acres within six
■ miles of this ferry, all in the Cran-
| brook district.
: So you understand that the opening
; up of this corner of the district will
assist in a business way, your city.
j Hoping you will oblige me by Call-
j ing the attention of the parties re-
i (erred to and using your own Influence, vou will be conferring a
(great favor on this settlement and
Vours truly,
Frank Murphy.
i   In the course of the discussion over
tbis
Mayor     Fink
pointed oul that it would be opportune for the hoard of trade, not
only to etidorse the fiee ferry scheme,
but to prepare data relative to the
extension of existing means of com-
I munlcatlon, with a view to securing
an appropriation nest session of the
legislature for more direct road
communication   between    Cranbrook
| and tbat settlement
) Mayor Fink's suggestions were
heartily endorsed nnd ;i resolution,
embodying his views was unanimous-
. ly adopted.
CRANBROOK BOARD OF TRADE
Many Matters of District and Local  Importance
Discussed
The regular monthly meeting of the
Cranbrook board of trade was held
on Tuesday evening last al the Hotel
Cranbrook parlors. There was a
good attendance ind a great deal of j
important business was transacted
President U. T. Brymner occupied
the chair. The minutes of the
previous meeting having been read
and adopted and some minor details
having been disposed of. a mass of
correspondence that bad accumulated
since the last meeting, was taken up
The lirst matter of importance to
he dealt with w-as a letter from the
Creston board of trade asking the
co-operation of the Cranbrook board
in securing long distance telephone
communication between the two
towns. This matter was discus-sexi
hy H. E. Heattie, Maurice Quafn and
others interested ip the Kootenay
Telephone Lines, Ltd. It was
pointed out that whilst the K-T.L
were most desirous of extending their
lines wherever profitable business
could he secured, the present stage of
settlement between Moyie and Creston hardly justified the installation
of the proposed line. There would
be too much idle territory to cover.
In the near future it was hoped that
settlement and the opening up of the
mineral and other icsources of the
intervening territory would justify
the installation of this service, but
at the present moment, with so
much other important and costly
work on band, the Creston connection
could not be considered as practicable. It was pointed out that the
K.T.L. had two very big contracts
on hand just at present. One, direct
communication with Spokane, the
other, connecting up the Windermere
district with Cranhrook, When
these two very important connections
were completed it might lie practicable to take up the Creston proposition, but for the present, so tar as
the K.T.L. was cot.c-rned, nothing
could be done.
The next qucstl »n was that of
Cranbrook's representation at the
irrigation convention, which opened
in Kamloops this week, On motion
it was decided to reouest Mr. F K
Simpson to represent the hoard
thereat.
A farmers' association) know nr
the United Fanners of Alberta, is to
meet in conventi in at Vancouver
during the present month and the
secretary of that organization wrote
asking Cranbrook board of irade to
appoint a delegate thereto On motion Mr* Oeo. T. Rogers was asked
to act in tbat capacity.
A mass of correspondence in reference to the new H C Companies'
Act was the next matter to receive
attention and after some discussion
the 'jito-h- matter was referred to a
con," .'(ttee, consisting of M. A- Mac-
rtotfcld and J. P* Kink, to report on
at the next regular meeting.
Correspondence fr mi W. K. Scott,
deputy minister of agriculture, was
the next order of business. Mr.
Scott had written explaining how it
happened that Cianbrook district
was overlooked In the matter of lectures hy the experts sent out
through the province by tbe department of agriculture, lie also wrote
re (he selection of a site lor a demonstration farm in this district.
intimating thnt .Mr. Win. Middleton
would shortly t-c sent into the district to select Mt*** aad report    to
Um department, which would arrange
for the final selection.
Correspondence from the manager
of tbe mineral exhibit at the Spokane fair brought in a very Interest-
log discussion, In the coarse of
which Mr -los. Ryan made some
str'k-.ro; s*.a***::.iT.*-. Ma':*-*' t<* the
mineral wealth ol Si Mary's valley,
special reference to which appears
elsewhere In this Issue. The outcome of this discussion was the appointment of Mr. lljan to prepare a
special st Mary's valley numral exhibit and to act a: chairman of a
committee, having (a charge the
matter of getting together a mineral
exhibit from the whole Cranbrook
district.
Another matter disposed of was
the appointment of Mi. A. H Smith,
of Fort Steele, to lake charge of the
collection of a spe.-ial exhibit for the
Dry Panning O agi ***. to be held at
Spokane.
The question of a swimming bath
for the new V.M.C A. was again up
for discussion and it was resolved
that the secretary be instructed to
write Supt. Price »;:h a view to
securing reconsideration of this project.
President Brymner stated that several farmers, dome bttstaeas in Cranbrook bad call'd bis attention to the necessity of
providing some convenient "tie up,"
where they could leave their teams
in safety when only in (own for a
few hours, thus saving hkcry stable
charges This matter was referred
to the city council.
Attention sres neat directed to the
question of blocking the sidewalks on
Sundays to tne Inconvenience and
annoyar.cn* of t!.<- public, particularly
ladies. Speaking t<. this question
one trasdneas man pointed onl that
several ladies had complained to him
of the Inconvenience th. ■.- srera put
to last Sunday evening through (he
blocking up of the Mdewalk. He had
no wish to prevent public meetings.
but he     thought  that  those holding
them should show * me c mstderatloa
for the public. This point Ol view
was generally endorsed hv those
present and after s> me discussion It
was resolve*! to is*. thi Clt| council
to instruct the pol.ee to heap the
sidewalks clear in fi.ture.
Alderman DeVere Html prOfOked a
lively discussion by a suggestion
that  the hoard sh mid request     the
city council to pa] mora attention
to the appearance rd Baker *tr*«-t and
Van Home avenue    Ills view   was
that the business nm specially interested should make representations
to (he council in tr.* matter so that
(hey would lie juatlflcd in giving
special attention lo these tiro Important thoroughfares. There was a
gOOd deal of discussion, but HO definite action was taken, it being the
general opinion thai the council was

The Stand of the Catholic Church on
the Temperance Question
(By Rev, A. Gorritsma. Northwest Review, Winnipeg.)
On this qiifslinu Uie church ought
to take and docs take the same stand
us lier Divine Founder Jesus Christ.
Christ was not a crank nor a fanatic,
neither is the church. He hail no
extreme views, neither has tlie
church. The Pharisees tried on different occasions, hut they could
never fret Our Lord to commit Himself to any extreme measures.
Fanatics huve made it a cardinal
principle thut wine or anything thai
partakes of the character <if wine is
u hell-broth; they say that any man
who touches it is beyond the palo of
Chrirtiun communion, hot they huve
never succeeded in getting the cliurch
to commit herself to this principle
The church is perfectly well aware
that wine und other alcoholic beverages have caused mote ruin in the
world than perhaps all other agencies. Slill you cannot get her to
say that liquor is evil, or that the
drinking of liquor is a sin.
Whilst proclaiming that there is
no heaven for the drunkard, that thi*
uhuse of liquor is most deplorable,
she holds that the moderute use
thereof is not to be condemned.
This was the verdict of Christ, this
is the verdict uf the cliurch. Kvn
so, the church lavors total austtfl*
once, not. hy force, but of man's own
free will. There is no place when- a
temperance crank liuds a war mi*-"
welcome than iu the Catholic church
Any mail or woman iu the world who
wants to give up lhe use of 'ty'lut.
forever, can find a priest anywhere
to administer the lotal abstinence
pledge. The convert to total a-j-
stince may declare all liquor a
curse—hut for himself only, lie may
denounce drinking as a crime against
Got) und man, hut only when he himself is the drinker, lie may nil •; .
heroic measures of prohibition or
local option for himself, but he must
not attempt to force the same una
sures upon others.
Tbe church is aguin.U pr i.i-Wi'i in • i
local option, because it is a;i encroach men I upon p'-ri in il Itbcm,
and tlio church has ever jealously
guarded the liberty of hee people.
Personal liberty iv Uie si-urea ■<■-
our happiness here on earth, it is .1
principle thnt must he ■ruir-l-...' ua
allium; the most sacr.'d rights of
man. 1 may educate n■•. c' il."*r
according to my coasvleuee, I i;uy
choose the garments \.*\\ \ weal, »
may regulate my diet as it may see u
good to me; but my drink shall not be
r-'gulaUil by prohibition.s'.s • 1 !<<al
optiotiists.
Suppose three people travelling to
gether through the country. Two of
them decide lo abstain frum liquor
Have they u right 10 impose liy
force their abstinence on the third
man? If they do, the goteiulbont
should interfere und protect the liberty of the third man. On the
other band, two of them decide Ij
drink, and they should fore* mc
third man to drink by p--.ring it
down his throat, again the government .should Interfere anil guard Hit-
llberty of that man.
If others may rav what 1 .sh.i-1
drink, how soon will they insist UJ.-
on saying what I mav cat, and what
I may wear, and then where will he
my personal liberty?
No man should sck lo -riiforce upon
bis brother by legislation, the virtue be ean possess only by the dictates of bis own comciciicc uud tbe
energy of his will. Vou cannot leg-
dale men into the performance of
good and righteous deeds. Says
Henry Ward Ucech-tf. "If you say lo
me that 1 ought not tu drink, perhaps 1 would ague with you; but If
yuu tell me, 1 must tot drink, 1 will
drink, because I huve u natural right
lo do su—tu drink whal  1 please."
And Tolstoi says: "Government
cannot improve the moral nature of
man and brute force alwuys defeats
its object. There can be no coercion uf tlie lout. Ivery law must
huve tbe sanction of the free will"
If tlie majority huve a right to
impose its views Upon the minority
In one thing, why not in another? If
t cuu prohibit one thing, why imt
another?
Main people eat too much meat.
Vegetarians lell ns lhat those WHO
eat meal ure necessarily bestial.
Therefore prohibit meat. The .lews
suy pork is unclean meat. If at any
time they should gel a majority,
prohibit pork.
Christian Science tills us, (tootors
ure fukirs, uil cures can lie elected
by faith, therefore banish all doe-
tors.
Many men use horses for gambling
purposes and thousands ot men are
ruined hy betting ut the races. Shall
we then abandon horses altogether
and take tu the bievele?
Hut many overt*/tlie bicycle    and
'Ter from curvature of tUe spine and
the bicycle heart. Shalt a^-*f then
prohibit   llie bicycb? \%W
'Some people are Injured by
drinking coffee? Must all the world
then give up its morning cup?"
These are the words of lllshop More-
land of California.
Yuu se*- what under these circumstances might tiecome ot our personal liberty.
Hut we ure lold thut liquor is the
run*' uf almost every evil iu this
woild.
Before going any further, what
docs the Hible say? In all tlm
great crimes recorded In the Hible,
liquor plays the minor part. The
first great crime spoken of III the
good hook Is the fall of Adam. As
a result of ii the whole world was
cursed. Vet it was not drink that
caused il, but ambition.
The first murder ever committed
wus thnt ol Cain shedding bis brother Abels hi j      Vet Cain was not
Intoxicated. The cause wus jealousy
and bate.
The shameful sin ui Davldl Was
drink responsible fot it'.' No,
lust or eovclousiicss.
Sodom and Gomorrah were wicked
and were destroyed, but drink was
not responsible for their desl ruction.
What is the greatest crime in the
New Testament? The belrayul ol
Our Lord by Judas. It was not
drink, but avarice caused this. It
wus for u few picc.s of silver, yet
who would say that the free circulation of silver caused this ruin?
The sin is not in the object which
man covets, it is in the man coveting.
Vou may take n man ami build
walls around him uud prevent him
from having any Intel course with the
outside world, but you cannot make
llini chaste, if he is not chaste when
he comes there.
There is not one place in the Bible
that can tie brought forward as an
argument in favor of prohibition or
local option. There is: no commandment: "Thou shalt not drink," uud
if drink were the cause of almost
every evil, God would have known it
aud Ile would no doubt have made
this commandment.
Wc admit however that lip uvlls
connected with the drinking habit ai>-
gigantic. Thousands of lives anl
many mure thousands of households
are the victims every year; disease
aud poverty und cilme grow up
where alcohol drenches the soil.
A remedy is badly needed) yet ihis
is 110 proof for the wisdom of prohibition ur local option.
The railroads in lhe I'nited Stales
injure more than a hundred thousand
persons and put out seven thousand
hopeful lives in one yeur; does nny
sane man argue that ruilrouds
should be abolished?
If a hollow tooth aches, the modem
dentist does nut thi'ik of pulling it,
thut would be the remedy of the old-
time village barber.
Tlie evil of drtuk exists, a remedy
must be found, but prohibition or
local option is not that remedy.
Kor prohibition dues nut prohibit,
local option dues not prevent tbe
sale and consumpt ion of liquor
Statistics are there to prove this.
Drugstores, livery burns, barbershops, closets, eellus and outbuildings ure the bars of prohibition
countries. Prohibition eliminates
tbe mild beverages in favor of
strung drinks, It substitutes lonely
drinking for drinking jn company.
It is easier tu transport und hide
whiskey und rum than beer uud wine.
It comes iu trunks, suitcases, valises, satchels, boxes, hail els und even
c'uMins. It comes In on the railways, un boats, uu wagons and iu
carriages.     You cannot keep it out.
Bishop Spalding uf Pepriu bus well
said: "The worst rum-holes are men's
mouths. So long us these holes are
open lo receive it, rum will find its
way into them. Can these holes
be closed by prohibition' No, it ean
be done only by convincing and persuading their owners to do it of
their own free will."
That was tlie method ol Kather
Matthew, tlie method hy which he
won (he grandest success which the
temperance cause has yet gained.
Of course, when A man expresses
such views as these, local optiotiists
ami temperance cranks will say that
he is Interested in Hie trade, that he
is a friend of intemperance and SB-
loouisiu. Thut is whal the Pharisees said of   Our l/ird: "Ile is       a
wlueblhler, the Sun uf the man c -
Oth eating uud drilling." Hut this
is a poor argument In luvor of prohibition or tlie temperance preacher,
who hung a Canadian ling uver
his pulpit, fastened a (urge putcb ol
black color on It, deelured thul the
patch Stood for the liuuor evil -md
then  tore ihe black cloth oil       the
uple leal.
In conclusion let me quote the
words o| some ol the greatest men
ui tbe American continent:
Mgr. K. Goiter! "The Pope certainly does believe In totnperanoci thut is
moderation in all things, but no absolute prohibition That is nut the
spirit ut freedom, but of autocratic
government. The Holy Father 1k*-
lieves that men should be allowed tu
use their own Judgment in what tbey
should eut and drink and not have
other men decide such matters for
them."
Archbishop Mcssmcr, ot Milwaukee:
"The stand which I take against tin-
Imposing ot laws by any community
which interfere with personal liberty
is the stand taken by Ihe Catholic
church The church holds that any
attempt to curtail this liberty is to
In- discouraged. Prohibition is such
an attempt."
Hisluqt Foley, ut   Hetroit   "I bave
always suid that prohibitionists wen*
humbugs. One has only to observe
conditions where prohibition is iu
force to realize how much of a humbug this method of handling the
drinking habit is. Thoro is only one
solution of this trouble, high license
and observance of the law."
Francis Murphy, the great temperance orator: "The policy of the prohibition party is- unseripturnl, un-
American and unreasonable. The
prohibition policy amounts to Cea-
sarlsm."
Cardinal Gibbons: ''I am persuaded
that it is practically impossible to
put prohibition into effect in nny
lurge community and the best menus
therefore lo promote temperance is
to limit the number of saloons liy
high license. I would be in favor of
inflicting severe punishment 011 the
proprietors of saloons who violate
the law iu the lirst. instance and in
the second iiislanco I would withdraw the license altogether."
Here is the whole case lu a nutshell: The stand of lhe church ou the
temperance question is this: Ue temperate in oatlng und drinking; he a
temperance crank it you like, but
don"; try to iinpise your -•;■'■*. in
others, respect iheir personal llrier-
ty. Intemperance i-; s real evl
The remedy, not prohibition ot lnf-.il
option, hut education, h'gl, l.tiiis-*-
und enforcement of existing laws.
A MONEY-BACK HATIt GROWER
AND DANDRUFF CURE.
Head what Mrs. I!. Lawrence, 15K
W. 17th Street, Holland, Mich.,
writes about the marvelous results
obtained from the use of Parisian
Sage, the delightful hair tonic, which
is now on sale all over Canada.
"Kor several months my hair had
been falling out, and dandruff also
appeared. I used some so-culled
hair tonics and renewers, but never
received any relief from the scalp
disease tint il 1 procured Parisian
Sage, and used it for about two
weeks. Parisian Sage made the
hair stop fulling out, nnd caused it
to grow in quite heavily, stopped
the dandriifT, and made the scalp
cool, clean, uud comfortable. It also
leaves the hair silky, and does not
make it stiff or sticky. I endorse
the use of Parisian Sage, ll is all
right."-October ."10, 1008.
The Beattie-Murphy Co. is the
agent for Parisian Sage in Cranhrook and they think so well of it
that they guarantee it to cure dandruff, stop falling or splitting hair
or itching of scalp, fn two weeks, or
money back, it will make any woman's hair soft nnd luxuriant in a
few days. Price SO cents a large

On tlie subject *<f tlw navy Sir
Wilfrid remarked: "The best policy is

Duck Lake, tbo scene of many sanguinary battles during the rebellion
of 1865, also received a visit from
Sir Wilfrid Laurier on Thursday.
It was a rare sight to see the premier surrounded hy husky old veterans, many of them old Indian vvor-
riois, at the railway station. Will.
a far-away look in his eyes as
though he were endeavoring lo pic
ture tbe scenes of former times now
that he stood on llie soil where tho
bloody feud between Whites and Indian* took place, the premier addressed the crowd from the rear of
liis special train, ami he made a Oiling reference to the episode.
The rebellion was .spoken ol in an
address presented to Sir Wilfrid by
the mayor. In this address tbo
premier was reminded thai the lirst
shot of the rebellion was fired at
Duck Lake. The address expressed
another good sentiment. "We recognize, Sir Wilfrid," it said, "that
you arc working for the Interests of
this country iu lhe broadest imperial spirit."
In his reply Sir Wilfrid said: "You
may well say that Duck Lake is a
historic name iu our history. Its
name is connected with tbe unfortunate events which at one time created
a great deal of commotion all over
the soil of Canada. This crowd is a
living witness that the memory of
these events arc not of an unpleasant
character, and all of you are happy
to live as Hritish suljects under the
Hritish constitution."
At Host hern, the premier made another reference to the rebellion.
"This town," he said, "is famous
for its association with the rebellion
of 1885. It has been said, 'happy is
the people who hath no history.'
Unfortunately, the page on our history Is darkened by the rebellion of
which I will say no more. It was
perhaps not without excuse, and not
without cause, aad had tbe authorities been more careful, this bloodshed would have bee** avoided. Hut
let us not pass any recrimination
over the past. On the contrary,
let me rejoice with you in that those
unfortunate events have now disappeared and wc are row a happy and
prosperous people."
At the towns of Duck Luke and
Kosthern, Sir Wilfrid met some interesting personalities. He shook
hands with a party nf Indians who
fought against the whites in the re-
hellion, and when a Crimean veteran
walked up to him, the premier gave
him a hearty hand shake and proudly looked at the -nedals on the old
man's breast. It was a proud day
for Thomas Cross, who went through
the battler? of Alma, Inkerman, Balaclava ami Sebastopol, and he walked
away from Sir Wilfrid Impressed
with the kind words he said.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier made a triumphal entry into Saskatoon last
Thursday evening, and he received a
great welcome from the citizens. He
was met at the railway station h>
the mayor and civic authorities, the
military and the mounted police,
and the decorations and vast crowd,
made an impressive scene. Accustomed, as the premier is, to vast
crowds and hearty receptions, he
must have been greatly impressed by
the thought that where a city of
1-1,000 exists today there was nothing but wild prairie six years ago
Saskatoon had none itself justice.
It had spent $6,000 on civic decorations alone, and tho citizens put so
much enthusiasm into tbe event, that
it will he mcmorablo In the history
of this city.
As soon as Sir Wilfrid arrived, he
was driven through the cheering
crowd to the center of the city,
where he mounted a band stand to
receive the civic address. This was
read by Mayor Hopkins, and it expressed tlie reelings of esteem and
love of the people if this new city
for Canada's grco teal statesman
"Like our fellow eltltens elsewhere,"
said the address, "the people of
Saskatoon are divided upon party
lines, and when occasion arises we
tight our political battles wilh vigor
and energy, but we can lay aside our
differences and unite op such an occasion. While we recognlxo that you
arc the leader of a party, we do not
forget that you aro also a Canadian
statesman. That yon have devoted
your time to the sin ice of the country, and that your labors have been
identified with great public undertakings; that you have accomplished
much that will ho productive of
lasting benefit to the Dominion;
that your name is respected abroad,
and that you hnve already In your
life time, and in tho rigorous exercise of your powers, won a distinguished place in Canadian history.
The address- sketched the growth
nl Saskatoon. "When you last
made a tour of the west," it said
upon this subject. "Saskatoon was
only a    small    village.    Keen eight
exceed 300, You, therefore, bave he-
fore you a striking oxamplo of tlie
rapidity with wliich development is
taking place in tbis part nf tlie Dominion."
In regard lo iho cosmopolitan nature of tho city tho address said,
"Our population is drawn from many
flifferent lands, but however diversified in origin, race ami language, the
people who enter jur borders quickly
become assimilated, filled with Canadian sentiment, loyal lo our laws
and institutions and united in
spirit."
"The people of Saskatoon are
proud to greet Sir Wllirld Laurier as
an apostle of harmony." Tbis
statement, made at Saskatoon on
Thursday evening by the Hon. Walter
Scott, the premier of Saskatchewan,
was cheered to the echo by the 3,000
people who crowded the skating
nuk. It was .lie finest meeting
flvot held in Saskatoon, and lhe enthusiasm shown was a filling climax
to the festivities wliich have characterized Ibe premier's slay in Saskatoon.
The building, which was decorated
wilh patriotic emblems and mottoes
was crowded to its utmost capacity,
and the crowd went away greatly
Impressed with one of the grandest
speeches Sir Wilfrid Laurier has
made during his western tour. A
galaxy or the most important citizens in Saskatchewan sat by the side
of Sir Wilfrid on Ihe platform.
The chairman, I. P. Cairns, described the meeting as the most memorable ever held in Saskatoon.
George E. McCreuny, the local M.
P., said Sir Wilfrid had preached
a doctrine of conciliation and unity
during llie whole of his public life.
It was a fortunate thing for Canada
that ut a time there was a cosmopolitan stream of Immigration into
the country there should be a man
like Sir Wilfrid Laurier at the head
of affairs.
Hon. A. TurgCOll, the attorney-
general of Saskatchewan, said that
Canada aud the western pari of Canada in particular, owed a great deal
to tlie Liberal government. Kor the
last fourteen years the premier had
lii'eii at the helm of the Canadian
ship of state, and the results had
been very beneficlcut to the country
as a whole.
"Sir Wilfrid comes here today," lie
remarked, "to sec (bo results of bis
work as the creator or new provin-
ing his tour through the west, has
cast aside tlie mantle of Icadcrsbip
he has worn so long, and so well,
nnd now appears before the people of
the west in the costume of n true
citizen."
The Hon. Walter Scott, premier of
Saskatchewan, who was Introduced
by the chairman as the best provincial premier in Canada, said that in
passing through the province. Sir
Wilfrid Laurier had seen a great
transformation since his last visit.
There was no better illustration of
the change which had taken place
than in that very spot, where the
new city of Saskatoon bad been built
up.
In discussing the benefits of the
administration of the Laurier government, Mr. Scott remarked, "The
people of Saskatchewan have as good
prospects for the future and are as
happy now as any people on the face
of the globe." .Mr. Scott concluded,
A policy of harmony ami concilia-
Rion has been one of the features of
Sir Wilfrid Laurier's administration.
Uur late revered a Ing Kdward VII.
won for himself the proud title ol
Kdward the Peacemaker. I am sure
that I voice the feelings of this vast
crowd, when I say the people of
Saskatchewan arc proud to greet
Sir Wilfrid Laurier as an apostle of
harmony."
K. M. Macdonald, MP., for Pictou, N.S., in speaking of Sir Wilfrid,
referred to the way l.e had represented Canada at the colonial conference
in Kngland. "Is then* a man in this
meeting," he asked, "who will deny
tbat when Sir .Vilfril Laurier (-poke
in Kngland lor Can.idi, he spoke letter and more truly than nny other
man we could have >cnt from ' ''■*>
ada?" In describing the l.lietal
policy, Mr. Macdonald said they
sang the same Psalm and pr.tfU.leid
one doctrine, and that was the policy of Liberalism. Ho contended
that the Liberal party was the parly
of the people, and night to be supported by them througboul tbo
length and breadth of the laud,
When Sir Wilfrid was Called upon
to speak, several mirvtes elapsed In-
fore tbe cheering subsided. When he
could make his voire heard, Sir Wilfrid began: "In the course of a public life, which now covers more than
thirty years, it 'ia.i been my privilege to address many public gatherings, but I must say that up to the
present time I nflvor had such nu experience as I have now received at
the hands of my fellow citizens of
Saskatoon."
Referring to the growth of Saskatoon, Sir Wilfrid said: "When I pas
sed over this territory sixteen years
ago there was not even a village
where this city is today. If there
was a village it vas not visible to
the naked eye. At that time between llegina and Piince Albert ynu
could have counted almost upon Iho
fingers ol my two hands the number
of settlers to be found."
Sir Wilfrid    outlined    tlie changes
which have since  taken    place,   and
he remarked: "One ol the causes  ol
this prosperity is the bold, wise and
not | progreiaive policy   which bas

tliey have   answered     our welcome.

succeeded. '   Is there a man    in this
audience who will say that this policy  has not succeeded  and  succeeded
well?"
But we shall r.ot rest on our
oars, and be satisfied with bragging
about our accomplishments,'1 continued Sir Wilfrid. "No we are only
just lieginning on our enterprise Why
do I say this, because I believe in
the Hudson Bay railway as much as
I believe ih the On id Trunk pacific.
The future of this country is so
great that it staggers one to think
of it. I thought much of it when I
undertook this tour, but since I have
seen with my own i>es what is familiar to you, my cplnfon of the future of Canada is not increased a
hundred fold, but a thousand fold."
Sir Wilfrid concluded a stirring
Speech with a peroration which moved the audience. "When my eyes are
closed in death," be concluded,
"if I can look Upon a united people
upon all the races which have congregated here by nit policy; if I can
look upon them as true Canadians.
all having in their hearts the greater pride of a Canadian nationality,
then sir, I will feel thai my life has
not been lived in vain, and I shall
die happy."
When Sir Wilfrid Ml down the audience gave vent to its feelings and
burst into great enthusiasm.
Regina opened iis arms wide on
Saturday to weld me Sir Wilfrid
Laurier and ihe pirly accompanying
him through the west. Considerable
preparation was made to appropriately mark the occasion, and tbe cltl-
zens entered into the welcome with
great thoroughness Business establishments ami era private bouses
were decorated with bunting and
Hags, ami a fine triumphal arch made
I grain was one i f the chief features. This was situated In the
most prominent position In the city,
and the sign it lore "Sir Wilfrid,
dominion and our empire" was
one of tlie first things the premier
saw when he stepped Oil his special
train.
A large crowd met Sir Wilfrid at
the railway station, and when the
train steamed Into the depot there
was a great eagerness to see the
distinguished statesman. The police
kept the crowd back until the mayor nnd coundlmen went into the car
nnd made the acquaintance of Sir
Wilfrid, who received a great ovation
.is he wended his way through the
people. The reception on Saturday
was of an informal character, hut on
Monday Sir Wilfrid received a civic
address, and at night be addressed a
been   public meeting.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier expressed some
notable sentiments to a party of
American settlers, who met him at
Craili.     on    Saturdaj "I  under
stand," Sir Wilfrid said, "that
many of you havu come Irom the
great Republic to llm smith of us—a
land which is akin to us by blood
and tradition. I hope that in coming from a free country you realize
that you have conic also to another
free country at that, although you
come from a republic you come to a
crowned democracy.     The King, uur
verelgn, has perhaps not so many
powers as the president of tlie I'nited Stater, but who lhu we are on
the one side of thn line or the other
are all brothers by blood, by
kinship, by ties of relationship, Coning here, as you have come, and
becoming naturalized citizens of this
country, no one de tires you to forget tin* land of your ancestors.     It
luld be a   poor man who      would
t always have In his heart a fond
affection for tin- land from which
lie came Hut in coming to this
country, while you should not, and
do not ih sire that ynu should
forget that you wire born Americans, still we desire that there
should lie a slill greater bond of
union between the land of your birth
and the land of your adoption
"The two great countries today,1'
said Sir Wilfrid, "are certainly the
Kingdom of (ireat Hritain and Ireland, and the Republic of the I'nited
states Lot them be united, and
the peace ol the world will Ih* forever assured. Kven though vour aspirations da not co so far as that,
still they co to this extent, that the
friendship which has existed for many
vears between "the country of your
birth and the land of your adoption
should go on Increasing, and chat tbe
ties nf trade should ever tie promoted, and that II possible there should
he eternal peace between these countries
Sir Wilfrid concluded, "I hope that
in coming here you have found liberty, justice, ami equality of rights. In
this country, as In your own, you
know nothing of separation ol creeds
and race, for you are all Canadians
here. And if I mav express a wish,
it Is thai you should become as good
Canadians as ynu have heen good
li erfcans. We d-> not want you
to forget what you have lieeii. we
want you to Iix.k more to the future
than to the past."
An almost unparaiieli*d demonstration ol loyalty occurred at Kegina on
tin-lay niebt. when the Germans of
tbis city declared to Sir Wilfrid
Laurier. they would be prepared to
do anything to defend their new
homes and country. In a loyal address they said; "M> hope the time
will coir.e when th? young men ol
our race will 1* able to man the Canadian navy and lake part in the defence of this country " In reply to
this remarkable demonstration Sir
Wdfnd made the most stirring speech
of this tour. Declaring Canada to
be the bright jewel ir. tbe crown ol
Britain, he prophesied it would become the |arg<*st and wealthiest portion of the empire. Declaring tbe
empire resls on liberty, equality and
justice, he declared this freedom and
local autonomy would prevent the
empire sinking into oblivion, which
engulfwl the Roman and Napoleonic
empires. Alter a reference to the
late war and tlie present federation
of South Africa, the premier said
Canada has Independence In allegiance
and while independent as a nation,
we do not ask separation. We are
all subjects of tho King. We will
have no other sovereign Tlie premier then explained his incredulity as
regarded a possible conflict between
Britain and Oermany, but should It
come, lie would ask German citizens
thf-rc to act as mediators.

EDITORIAL NOTES
The annual report of the minister
of mines for the year ending December .'list, 1000- lia.*; only just come to
hand. It is probably useless to comment upon the dilatory methods ol
the mines department iu the production of this report, which might be
of very meat service to the mining
industry if issued promptly. Then-
is no valid excuse for the constantly
recurring delay in its production.
What a newspaper e'an do with its
limited resources, (In-iiudnl and otherwise, a department of the government Bhould at leant Ik able to equal.
As is well known lo all our readers,
for several years past, The Nelson
Daily News has issued a review of
the mining industry for the piist
year, during the first week in the
new year. Information that can be
obtained and compiled by a newspaper, certainly should be obtainable
liy a government department und   it
OUgllt to he passible for the mines
department lo issue early iu the
new year, at least a fairly comprehensive summary ol the past year's
mining operations and developments,
such u publication as would be ol
practical value in malting known, authoritatively, Ihe conditions Ol Ibe
industry in this province.
From the table hi lids report deal
ing willi the mineral production of
the province, we find that the returns f : IU03 show a total production of 521,113,02a, slightly iu excess of that of the previous year,
but considerably less than that of
|!Mt7 and ..Hit;. I'lic Kast Kootenav
district is credited willi a total production of $l,7lj0,215, being slightly
less than tbe production of the year
limn and considerably less than thai
of' Mm;. There was a falling off iu
tbe production of placer gold compared with Iflfffl as also of gold from
lode mines. The total production ol
copper also shows a slight decrease
as compared witb 1P08. The pro
duotlon of coal and cake shows a
marked increase compared with Mtws.
The Porl Steele Mining District is
credited with 7.2K per cent ol the
total mineral tonnage produced during the year. Kast Kootenay is
credited with having shipped 1111,700
tons of ore during the year from two
shipping mines, giving employment
to :iK2 men.
The gross output of the coal mines
of llie province for Inc year l!Mit» was
2,100,000 tons (of 2,210 His), of
which 5,782 Ions were added to
stock, making coal disposed of -,-

of coal sold  l,7!li,UH tons.
The collieries in the Kast Kootenay district made in 1000 a gross
production of 1)23,885 tons of coal,
of which 430 tons wire added to

I'nder the guise ot o|H'ii-air religious meetings, Sundav evenings have
recently lieen made horrible in t'ranbrook hy violent tirades on civic affairs. Whilst no one could or would
object to open air religious meetings
on Sunday evenings during the hot
weather, a very reasonable object ion
can be raised against the holding of
street corner meetings nt which purely mundane affairs ate discussed with
a virulence and a disregard for the
sentiments of pnssers-hy, wholly at
variance with the teachings that
should prevail on such occasions.
Freedom of kjiwIi is one of the
proudest privilege* of the British
empire und tin* Herald would lie the
lasl paper iu tlie    world tu seek   to
place any impediment in its way.
At the same time wr recognize the
necessity ol exercising some discretion iu the matter nnd when individuals, under the cloak of religion,
seek to conduct opi"i air meetings for
thu purpose of airing their perverted
views on civic affairs, und vilifying
the city's officials, we think that it
is high time to call a halt. Such
meetings should U relegated to
some spot where the uninterested
public may not he Offended by the utterances ol sidewalk orators, too
completely obsessed by their own
ideas of propriety to pay the slightest attention to ihe sex or age of
their auditors.
In the recent death of John .V.
Kwati, associate editor of the To-
conto Globe, Canadian journalism
sustains a distinct loss. Mr. Kwan
was well known personally to the
great bulk of newspapermen throughout the Dominion, and to know him
was to like and respect him. His
work was thorough and always characterized hy the sincerity thut was
so distinctive a quality ot the man.
A great deal of newspaper space
has bren devoUil of late to the details of the pursuit and capture of a
man named ('ripped, charged with
lhe murder of his wife in London,
Kng. Whilst the details of the case
are uninteresting, save for those who
relish sordid details of crime, there
is an interest iu Iht contrast between British aud American methods
of dealing with criminals, a difference
that has been aptly commented upon
by the San Francisco Kxamiuer, as
follows:
"You know what happens in America," the Examiner says, "when the
interesting hero of n sensational
imirdor is locked up. Nothing happens for a long time.
"The newspapers discuss the crime.
They illustrate it. Clergymen, ladies and young reporters write about
it, und preach about it
"Intelligent lawyers, in search of
the limelight, struggle for the honor
of defending the criminal.
"The days [ibsk, weeks, months,
and even years go by— and still the
ease drage along wilh delays, appeals, new appeals, expert testimony,
trips to the insane asylum' elforts to
gel out of the insa ne asylum—and su
ou indefinitely.
"If Crippen had committed his
crime in America and were arrested
lure, he could count or. three or four
years at least of life, and regardless
of his guilt, with the aid of insnnity
spccialists, he uiulit live out his
natural term.
"It will be different with Crippen
in Kngland. They will simply ask,
"Did this man murder the woman"'"
If Ihey can prove that he did, they
will hang bim. There won't be any
appeals. Nobody will ask or care
how much money Crippen has If
lie had ten millions and could hire a)
the experts in the world, his money
would not delay by one day his appearand! nu the gallows*—assuming
him to Im* guilty.
"The Knglisb system is a greal
deal better than our own, for it discourages murder. !n America then-
arc more than, ten times as many
murders in proportion to the popula-
tionas there are iu Kngland; the
percentage of murderers that go free
in America is infinitely greater than
in Kngland.
"A man who commits murder
within reach of the Knglish law-
knows in advance that if he is caught
be will Ih* hanged within a few days,
lie knows tbat there won't be any
quibbling about the evidence or
about a mis-spelled word. It won't
do him any good to prove that his
aunt was nervous, or thnt his rich
uncle drank himself into the insane
asylum.
'Prompt justice dors more to prevent crime than the moat severe punishment."
TKI.KIMIONKK TO FOHT QEOROE
MR. W. .1.    DKHKCK SAYS THAT
LINE FROM   HI.ACKWATKH
TO NORTHERN TOWN-
SITE IS PROGRESSING.
Mr. W. J, Delleck, manager of the
Fort George and Alberta Telephone
company, which is building a telephone line Irom Blackwat-er, where
communocation Is nad with the government system ol telegraphs, tn
Fort George, was renewing acquaintances in Cranhrook during the
past week. Rapid piogress Is being
made in constructing the fifty-live
miles of this line, the wires having
bccri strung tn about eighteen miles
ntrt frnm Fort George. The new
town should he reached in a week's
time nnd then Fort George citizens
will celebrate the event—an important one, when it is recalled how in
ud-w-uale Iwu    tieeu tbe mall acivii-c
and the transportation facilities between tjuesnel and the hub of the
new north. Ten oi twelve men
, have been engaged since spring on
this Important project and the wnrk
they have accomplished stands
greatly lo the credit nf both themselves ami those who have heen directing their energies. The telephone company is composed of Hritish Columbia capitalists
Mr. Delleck has the same talc In
tell as many others who have been
!north, of settlers going Into the
country iu numbers nnd nf the busy,
J bustling life of expansion of Fort
George. The lucal sawmill cannot
supply lumber fast enough or Unbuilding demands, the freight stcaui-
Icrs on the Fraser can not transport
| the material and stores and supplies
up from Quesnel and Soda Creek
quickly enough, and there Is a booming uir about everything that Is infectious. Hut transportation is a
problem. The boats have not had a
lucky season so far and the I). X., a
fine new steamer is the only one
now in the running. The trails
have been bad aud the inrush of
people too heavy for tlw conditions.
Still Fort George, or rather the several Fort Georges, lor there ure several townsites, is growing like a
lusty youngster. There Is u good
country adapted Ior agriculture round
about, and a magnificent stretch of
waterways leading In the country up
the Fraser and beyond, A steamer
can steam up the Fraser tn Tete
Iiiiin Cache, 220 miles (mm Fort
George towards thn Rockies. A
country nf such gieat possibilities
will lie sure to attract thousands ol
settlers and there wi.l be a greater
rush to Fort George town and distriet next year. Such is Mr. Ilc-
Heck's opinion.
Hut the man who bat' only a small
stake should give I'trt George a
wide berth. Living is high and once
fn, it takes as much money tu get
out us it takes to get in. The
fnigbt rute from Ashcroft to Fort
George is b'SJ cents a pound, and
that sends up the necessaries nf life
to a high figure. Hut to the pioneers these difficulties add zest to the
game. It is a country ot opportunities although the Grand Trunk
Pacific is still a few years away.
Mr. Delleck left again on Tuesday
for 'Ashcrolt, en route to Fort
George. Tlie officers of the Kort
George and Alberta Telephone company, are I). Carney, of Kaslo, president; 0, Gaskill, uf Cranbrook, vice-
president; Maurice O/unin, uf ('ran-
hrnuk, managing director; W. .1. De-
Reck sccrctary-treasuier. The stoek
ol the company is mainly held by
Cranbrook people.

SOCIETY GIRL.
Thr Society tiiil group consists uf
sewn erown-granted mineral claims,
si tlm ted a couple of miles to the
smith easl ol the town of Moyie, just
over the summit of the lirst range of
hills thai lies lo lite east of Moyie
lake, and at an altitude of from
approximately 5,1)00 to 5,200 feet nt
the upper workings, or 2,000 feet
above the lake. The properly is
owned and operated hy the Society
Girl Alining Co., a company composed uf working miners and prospectors, uf which Charles Karri*!! is the
moving spirit. The company, in
August, 1909, was employing eleven
men, who were lieing paid chiefly in
stock of the company, no that the enterprise has assumed practically the
lorm of a miners' co-operative partnership. The property is reached hy
wagort road from Moyie hy following
up the St. Eugene mine road to tin
tipper winkings uf flint mine, whence
a branch road has t.ccn built to the
south along the western slope of the
hill for client n mile, when it deflects
tu lhe east through a gap in the hill
fur atmlher mile. The company is
without funds to attempt any expensive development, b<it has done a
great deal nf such work as can he accomplished by prospectors by their
own cxeilioiis. The workings are
largely superficial, ui-nsisting cbiclly
of open cuts and prospeet shafts of
no grent deptii, iu many of which
promising ure was found. A tunnel
has been run iu (or 250 teet, above
which an amount of stuping has been
done »u a height of 80 feet, wlivu the
sin face was reached; Irom these
workings, it is reported by the lore-
man, about 700 tons ut ore have been
extracted. Some '100 feat lower
than this upper tunnel a lower tunnel has been started, and was then
in 721 feet, but had not at that
time struck ore, nor was ore expected until the tunnel had 1*1*11 driven
850 feet, al v.iui-h instance it was
hoped that tlie ore-body frum the upper tunnel would he encountered, it
was expected Hiat this work would
lia completed by the fall. The country along the summit of this range
ot bills is much broken, thus a fleeting the vein of this property, which
is somewhat irregular in tlw upper
workings; it is hoped, ns tlie workings get lower down the bill, that
tbe strata will he found more undisturbed, as was the ease In the St.
Kugene. The ore is essentially galena, carrying about halt ounce ot
silver to Hie per cent of lead, occurring in a quartz gangue, associated
with which is some zinc. In these
surface workings the galena has linen
■ui-rh oxidized and affected by surface Influences, so that the ore as
mined is Clrfofly lead carbonates witb
some galena. In the workings a
variety uf secondary minerals were
noted, some very pretty crystals of
pyioiiH.rphite being situ which occasionally carried as high as 70
ounces in silver. Che property Is nt
present a promising prospect, and
the result of the work in the lower
tunnel will largely determine whether
it becomes a mine.
AURORA,
The Aurora mine is located on tlie
west side of Movie lake, opposite the
town of Moyio and the St Kugene
mine, ant), approximately, iu the line
of tin- strike of the Si. Eugene
vein, uf which it is popularly considered to lie an "extension," although this lias not been demonstrated as a fact. The Aurora mine,
starting from tlie western shore of
tho lake, cuts up the hill wilh a
strike similar to the St. Eugene. At
an elevation ot some 200 feet above
the lake a tunnel has been driven in
along the strike of Hie vein for a
distance of I'd) feet. Near Ihe face
ot this tunnel a stupe has been raised above tlie level ol some H"> leet
and a maximum length ol 125 teet,
between this large slope and lhe
mouth of the tunnel the tunnel had
been run through two smaller bodies
of ore, the dimensions of which have
bot la-en ascertained, The face of
the tunnel is approximately 27*1 leet
vertically bctow the surface. About
160 feet vertically above the main
tunnel level, and almost above the
big stupe on that level, a shaft bas
been sunk to a depth of 78 feet, fntn
which a drift has been run to the
west for 1H0 feet, in which some
ore was encountered, leading to the
expectation tbat the ore in the
main slope may continue up to that
level. Some 150 feet vertically below the main tunnel and a few feet
above the take level, sufficient only
fot a dump, another tunnel has betMi
started, but at that* time—August,
1080—was still in slide-rock.
'I'll*** ore is galena, with some, lead
carbonates, caJrrylng silver very similar in character to the St. Eugene
ore, tbe ratio ol lead units to
ounces of silver neing about ns I Is
to 2, nnd oarriM a little /.Inc blende;
the gangue is quart?. Tbe better
grade of uie will rim about 20 per
cent lead and 10 ounces ol silver, but
tbe mass ol tlie ore will leuuire OOD*
ui'ii trillion. The vein is not very
tegular and varies iu width from 1
foot to I reel, averaging about 2 feet
in width. Tlie vein, though continuous, is iu* uai tor ml y mineralized,
but the good ore occurs iu lenses.
The property is owned by Messrs.
Itadet, .lohnson and Sanborn, and is
being worked under bond by the Aurora ll. aud M. company, ot whieli J.
A. larvey is president, and J. W.
Filch is vice-president. The company has installed on the beach, as a
temporary plant, .1 boiler and air-
comprtssor, and contemplates, if the
development continues satisfactory, the Installation of
a concentrator. The company was
employing sixteen men, under the
superintendence of 11. II, Dimock.
CAMBRIAN MINING CO.
The Cambrian Mining Company, of
which the chief ollieers are .1. C.
Hyde, of Heading, Kansas; A. II.
Cooper, ol Nelson, 11. C , with ('has.
A. Maakay, of Moyie, as secretary,
is ot interest chiefly iu that it is
attempting to accomp.lsh something
that has never been done in Hritish
Columbia—viz., to open aud operate
a mine lying under water by means
of u caisson sunk through the water
The situation is about as follows
"lUit* St, Eugene group of the Con-
solidattjd M. & S. t'o. of Canada
comprises a series of claims, extending from the summit of the hill
011 Ute easl side of Moyie lake down
to within a very short distance of
Uie tdge uf the lake, aud through
1 hit series of claims there rims, in a
general easl and west direction, a
quartz vein, carrying galena, which
has been fur years mined by the St.
Eugene company, producing a great
deal of ore. There is little doubt
but that tlie St. Eugene vein extends
westward out of its property and
probably under thu lake, in fact, it
bus heen arguefl that the same vein
is found on tlie western side of the
lake uu the property ol the Aurora
company, where it has been opened
up, Whether it is the same vein, or
another similar, lias, of course, never
been definitely proved. However,
the lower workings ol the St. Kugene are within a short distance of
the lake, and the vein continues to
the westward of these and, presumably, under the water.
The Cambrian company has- secured
and has eruwa-grantid the Cambrian
mineral claim, with an area of fit
acres), extending from the western
boundary of tbe St. Eugene property
Inwn to and tinder Hie water. The
laud area (3-1 acre) was, however,
uot deemed large enough on which
dak a shaft, and, consequently,
lhe company, possessed with the conviction that tbe continuation ol the
!** Eugene lead was to Ik* struck
under lhe waler, attempted to reach
it by a shaft put down through the
water liy sinking a caisson at a
distant** of about 200 teet Irom the
shore. The caisson consists of two
compartments, l by .'■ feet inside, the
outside and partition timbers   lieing
<> by 12 inches dressed timbers, made
1 sections of H feet in depth, bolted
together by six bolts. The frame
timbers were thoroughly caulked inside and nt the outside were plastered wilh halt inch of blue clay, over
which wan laid one and a hall inch
clear boards, running vertically and
piked on witli 5-ineb spikes; on the
outside of this there was a layer of
tlie heaviest l'uruid roofing, again
covered with 1 inch boards laid on
vertically. The lowest section of
the caisftiu is provided with a steel
shoe; the sections aie bolted logetb-
r and bave been sunk, it was reported by tlie secretary, through 00
feet of water and *M feet ol clay,
while, it wus estimated, there were
still la leel ol clay to be gone
through before    any solid formation
uld    he    reached.        The caissons'
have been sunk by rock piled on top
of a trussed   crib-work, the amount
i rock employed being estimated   a* j
150 tons.     The plant, consisting of
1 100 horse power boiler and a I-
drill air compressor in a temporary
womleu building, and a carpenter and
a blacksmith shop, is located on tbe
shore, while a crude pier has been
built from the shore out to and
around tbt caisson.
On she western side ol the lake, in
what is supposed by tbe company to
in- the line ot the strike of tht vein,
tlm Mabell mineral claim is located
in a sandy s-pn, at which point it is
planned to sink a second shaft at 1
distance of approximately hall a
mile Irom the caisson. Nn definite
results have so 'ar tieen obtained,
aud the work has ,iot advanced during 490!).
OF INTEREST TO FARMERS
SAVE THE MOISTURE FOR THE
PLANTS-KEEP HIE HARROW OOIKQ,
(By Prot. \Y. C. Palmer, Dakota Agricultural Collegit.)
Save the moisture and increase the
crop. Enough is now known of the
principles of soil moisture conservation that each one can he in possession of the secret. Then again
there is nothing difficult or mysterious about it. It is common knowledge, that anything wet dries ou being exposed to the air. The housewife makes use of this principle in
hanging out tlie clothes to dry. It
is us well known thnt oil moves up
through ti wick, and that if the
wick is cut the oil can not pass
over the gap. Witter will act the
same as the oil, and it moves
through the soil in the same way
that it does through the wick.
Keep in mind that a wet soil exposed to the air will give up its
moisture to the air; that water moves from the wetter portions to the
drier soil it the sol is compacted,
which condition compares to the
lamp wick; a loose soil compares lo
the lamp wick that 1:. cut and so lhe
moisture cannot move through it.
The plant needs the moisture in
the furrow slice as that is where il
does most of its feeding. Notice
the plant growing i.i the dead furrow. It has its roots in the subsoil. The moisture conditions
should be better there than in tlie
surface soil, yet the plant does not
do well, due to a lack ot available
plant food. This means thut a deep
furrow slice will oiler more feeding
room for the roots than a shallow
The furrow sWtv should be
packed Hrm against tbe bottom so as
to liritisli tiic means for the moisture U> pass from the subsoil to tbe
surface soil as the plant needs it. To
keep the moisture from passing to
the surface aud evaporating tbe surface soil should be kept loose, a
condition known as the soil mulch.
Another reason for the deep plowing is to furnish a large reservoir to
take up the rain fall readily. Shallow plowing cannot take iu rain as
fast or as much of it as deep plowing so the result is more run off.
How are these conditions to he
met?     The deep plowing lias       been
mentioned, Tin- proof of its value
is brought out by tlie fact tbat it
produces larger yields.
The soil mulch can Ih1 produced hy
tire common harrow. Crops are
harrowed after tbey are up, grain
can Ik* harrowed till five or six inch-
jes high, and some ate trying to harrow till it heads out aud with good
results. Tbe harrowing of grain or
I corn should only be done oh bright
sunny days and not belore the sun
has liven up three 1 r Tour hours. The
I plant when wet aud in the morning
j and on clouds days is more crisp and
; breaks up easier. The mulch should
' be made as soon as the land is
plowed. If it is not, considerable
evaporation will take plan- at uiicc.
In plowing do not leave the Held before harrowing what was plowed
tbat half day. A plow attachment
is now on the market that loosims up
the surface at the same time the
plowing is done. Another way is to
hitch an extra horse to a section of
harrow when plowing; Ibis does it
all al one operation too. In the
case of spring plowing it may be
necessary to pack it so as to get the
bottom ol furrow slice compact.
Tlie subsurface (acker is good for
this purpose, though going over with
the barrow two or three times packs
pretty go-oil, and is coming more into favor.
Full plowing shoul I be harrowed as
soon as possible in tbe spring as
moisture will "scape fast from the
surface that has been compacted during the winter.
Humus adds greatly to moisture
holding capacity ot the soil, acting
like a sponge or blotting paper. The
plowing under ol gtren crops
weeds when green adds humas. Applying manure is one ol tbe best
ways of adding it.
Weeds are large users ol soil moisture. And tbey are at work all the
time; as soon is a crop is taken off
tbe weeds go right on pumping out
moisture, so 'bat a grain Held that
would plow nicely it harvest will lie
too dry to plow well in a month or
two, and all due to the weeds. And
tbe weeds growing in tlie grain also
rob the grain of moisture and Ibe result is, that much less grain. One
way is to disc as loon as the crop
is hits ves ted      't   is necessary       to

have the lard free from weeds, nnd
this can be done if 11 crop of corn
aud a crop of clover is grown every
four or five years. Manuring will
also help iu Uml it will muke the
crops grow si lunger and so be more
capable of smothering weeds, nnd it
also holds moisture.
The best way to insure crop failure
is, grow grain year after year, to
let. the farm get weniy, let the weeds
pump out moisture both when crop is
growing uud after It Is cut, plow
shallow, nnd uot to harrow right
after plowing, aud it it is fall plowing not to harrow early iu spring.
To make it slill mon effective do
not apply any manure or plow under
any green crops ir rotate the crops.
The drier the season the smaller tin-
crop.
Now Is the time to think of saving
soil moisture, lo think of Insuring a
crop even, though the season be dry.
So plan to kill out weeds, if field is
weedy, disc as soot; as crop comes
ofi'; plow deep and follow plow wilh
harrow; barrow early in spring; apply manure; plow under green crops
and rotate the crops.
There is nothing difficult nhout
this, und it will double the crops,
and lu a dry season make a difference
between a crop and no crop.
FRUIT   (.ROWING     AND WHEAT
RAISING COMPARED.
(Special Correspondence  of Canadian
Farm).
Strawberry shipments from the
Kootenay are over lor Ibis season,,
wilh a short crop and good prices
ruling. No very definite reason
is assigned lor the shortage in the
crop, but there are many who affirm
that a late frost caught the bloom
when it lirst appealed. The quality
of tlie berries has heen very good and
tlie first carload that the Kootenay
growers shipped to ,\ Calgary wholesale house brought 11 letter of commendation and comment from which
tlie following are paragraphs:
"The shipment of berries under refrigeration, wc nave no hesitation in
saying, were the nest that ever came
on this market. There were not a
do/en cases iu the lot that were not
iu goud shape, and this clearly demonstrates tbat this Is tbe proper
method ol shlpmtt-t. The higher
price did not prevent the trade from
taking ihem freely."
"It strikes us tbat what you
growers need is 10 Increase tbe output, so as to U* ab!e to ship entirely
this way, when we believe that the
success of the business will he beyond a doubt."
The full returns have not been received from Ibis shipment at this
writing, but it is understood tbat
the shipment will net in the neighborhood ul ii.'iii per crate, l.o.b., at
the point ol shipui"i;t. Growers in
tlie vicinity of Creston, are reported
as getting as high as $2.50 per
crate, but in no -.*ase have the growers heen able to supply the demand.
As a result of this the growers
everywhere arc plaiting a large acreage iu berries, and It is hoped Hint
before many years have passed tie-.'
will lie able to supply the demand.
With regard to varieties, Clark's
Seedling, and the Magoon, appear to
he the favorites, alth. ugh a number
of growers are much pleased with tha
success 1 >f a new variety—Glvonn-i
Late. It ripens niter all the other
varieties arc ofl the market nnd
brings a top Atice.
Some time ago a number of bard
beaded, straight-business.and-no sentiment North Dak it i farmers were
gathered together in e special car
making a trip through the Yakima
country in Washing n:i, and hy the
way ol diversion they liegan to compare fruit-growing with wheat la riving. Tliey had jitst returned Irom :-.

but still many of them were Hot
satisfied that a living for a fumik

In lact, they were somewhat pro*
judiccd against 'he Iiuit proportion.

to figure for themselves, and the
editor of the Wrshingtoti frail

They pitted five acrtr ol fruit land

they agreed that t wind mean i/i

wheat land was placed at 181.36 an
acre, against Tt.oOO an acre for the
fruit land. They n.W agreed that
it would cost nn additional $1,350 to
buy the necessary implements for

OF INTEREST TO FARMERS
(Continued trom page six.)
The wheat pc-jilti- tion wv< estimated at 20 li-i.iI.ielK per acre, selling for a dollar .1 bushel, making u
gross income ol S-VJHi). They admitted the apple ciliani, which wns
an old one, woui produce 1,40(1
boxes of fruit per acre, or twenty
boxes to each iree, and counting
seventy trees lo llic acre. The ■
put the price ut tho apples at Bight;
cents per box, 1 lotal ot (6,600 from
the five acres. According to their
own figures, csttninttng conservatively in all cases, tntrt was a net hit*
ance in favor i»l tne apple ...'iir-l
amounting to J2. ion.
a number or i*M Wash! .pii-n fruit
growers tire C-im-niT up lu Hr:l.'li
Columbia, ami ibe? claim thnt th,'
saint; success is pi-tni'-la in |]n
northern territory as f.ir'bc; ham.
To the outsider wn 1 is -.ft ;ic
quainted with 'ar w»«ti a rmtilf-jn*,
these results appear tnoredib'e, but
in a recent article, Prof. Van De-
man, ot Washington, i>. c , throws a
gooit deal nt 'Ighl on the sittialiiw.
The whole article is much loo long
to quote, hut in part he says:
"One ot ttie moit important features in coiiimerci.il apple growing is
to produce fruit that is attractive
in appearance. Tlie average customer buys largely with his eyes anil
dues not give lha p Hen tion to quality that is deser.e.l. There should
lie un honest and insistent attempt
upon lhe part of the grower to give
both quality and good looks. Fortunately there are varieties that
combine these two prime features.
And this brings -is to one of the
most vigorously contested points in
our apple culture—the comparison
between eartern ai-.' western communities and (he c.inracter of the
fruit.
The conditions if climate are M)
different that iliere n no wonder that
comparisons aro drawn and tbat
there is room for it. 'taking the
Rocky Mountains as the dividing
line, there are iwo great regions
that are as ill ver JO In their conditions ns Ihey arc separated geographically. Apple growing is very recent on the Pacific side, compared
with that of lhe eastern states. Orchards have grown io old age and
died before the ap-oV industry was
known on the i'acilio slope. The
whole business denends on tlie fickleness of the seasons i.i all the territory from the mountains eastward,
except in a few rare cases, but to
the westward the I rigation almost
eliminates the question nf climatic
conditions. In a few sections of
the far west there is rainfall sullieient for producing apples, but about
all that are grown there are the direct result of Irrigation. And they
have made a nark In the apple world
not soon to be forgotten. Western
apples have really set the standard,
and the question with the eastern
growers is—how arc they to meet it
in the markets .if tin world. The
beauty of the apples of the west is
famous. This is accounted for by
lear and dry air, and the long
days of sunshine thnt are common
there. It is not generally understood that the summer days of Oregon. Washing! tn end Hritish Columbia are longer liy several hours than
those ol Virginia and New York, and
that tbe development of the plant
growth, which Depends on the sun-
bine, if correspondingly greater in a
given time. Those vim have never
seen these apples can have but a
faint idea of their vigorous and often dainty coloring-"
lu other sections of the article
Prof. Van Deman tells about the
comparative flavoring qualities of
tern and western apples, but the
portion quoted will give the gist of
his idea of the real reason for the
phenomenal yields   if western fruit.
THE HUDSON BAY ROUTE
(By D. W. Prowse, St. John's, Nfld).
The Winnipeg Free Press publishes
the following timely correspondence
on the question of the practicability
of the Hudson Hay route:
The question of this short sea
route to (ireat Hritain and Kurope
an an outlet for the ever-Increasing
gram crops and and cattle of Manitoba and tbe North-West is ol such
pressing vital importance to your
people that I am sure, Mr. Kditor.
that you will pardon me for taking a
hand in the discussion and contributing, in a humble way, some hints and
suggestions lhat may aid in its solution. We alt know that this new
route lias all-powerful enemies. The
great railway corporations and their
allies, and all the weight and influence ol upper and lower Canada
and the Maritime Provinces, are naturally against a move that will
take business from them. It seems,
however, that the Dominion government is at last in earnest, and the
new line is actually under construction.
In this colony we have to encounter nearly all the same objections,
difficulties, and prejudices about our
new route Irom Sydney, Cape Breton, nnd Port mix Basque. All the
wise-acres declared that Sydney harbor was frozen up after December,
and never had been used in winter.
W. D. Reid declared tbat he would
run his fine steamer Bruce Into nnd
out ol Sydney across to Port aux
Basque three times a week all winter. Kxpcrlcnccd men shook their
heads and said it was impossible, hut
for tbe part thirteen yean the Bruce
has made the Hip three times each
week ami never once failed. I have
carefully studied and read all the
reports un the Hudson Bay ruute,
and I am perfectly convinced lhat
navigation is feasible from July to
the middle uf October, and for strong
specially-fitted ships, like our sealing
-steamers, from June to December.
"The route will present gre.u attractions to tourists and sportsmen—
the new playground of America, pot-
lions of the immense region are suit
able for agriculture, and should attract Norwegian and Swedish emigrants. Jt will also open up considerable pulp works. And if youi
government would copy Newfoundland and introduce the tame Lapland
reindeer the new region now so despised and attacked as a barren, desolate Arctic region, would thrive
and prosper. There is nothing ihal
Biicceeds like success; so in the Initiation of this new and nil-important
sea ruute leave nothing lo chance.
Don't run any risk of a fiasco at its
commencement. Don't give your opponents a chance to crow over you,
and to ridicule the unite ah a failure. Mj- advice is simply for the
Inauguration of tho service to provide the most suitable ships, masters uud crews. For northern voyages of this kind, and possible encounters with Ice, the Newfoundlander, and the splendid new powerful
steamers owned by the Uowrlngs,
.Job, llarvcys and Grieve are the
very best you could gut. Tliey could
make several voyages as early ami as
late as possible und thoroughly prove
the value of the new trade route.
Like our Sydney course, it only
wants to be operated to show iis
value and its feasibility. I for one
am a (inn believer that it is practical, Its value to the North-West is
simply Incalculable.
Whilst the new route is valuable
for the transportation of grain, it Is
still more important for the passage
of cattle. A saving of nearly 1,01111
nlles of railway journey—they couh
he brought to Churchill from the
west under three days. It is a well-
known fact thut for a longer journey,
say, a week in the cats, cattle go
back tremendously. The greal point
is a short railway journey and to
ship Ihem in prime condition. On
82,000 head ot cattle the saving in
the cost of transport by the Hudson
Bay route would he $050,000, ami on
twenty million bushels ot grain $'*:.-
000,000. In time, fifty-to one hundred million bushels of grain could he
shipped via Churchill Our sealing
steamers could act as the pioneers
and leaders of the tramp steamers,
and if ice is met break a passage
through for them.
"That there are difficulties in the
way of this new route no honest
critic will deny. One very serious
question is put by the opponents of
the route as an entire damnation of
the whole scheme. They argue that
in the short space of two months no
important amount of grain, not even
five million bushels, could be shipped.
Of course, with limited appliances all
this is true, and at lirst all will not
go well; hut a route which is a
thousand miles shorter than via the
St, Lawrence must in the end prevail. More accommodation can he
given, the line can he double tracked,
with increased facilities fur shipping,
and experience may show a longer
open season. For the shipment ol
cattle alone the new line will lie invaluable."
The Free Press editorially comments as follows upon the great project:
The interesting article appearing
elsewhere in this page dialing with
the Hudson Hay project i.s by .fudge
D. W. Prowse, of St   .John's, whose
History of Newfoundland" is the
standard work of reference upon
Oreat Britain's most ancient colony.
.fudge Prowse sees clearly that the
opening up of this new northern
route is a great opportunity for Canada. Fortunately for Western Canada the Dominion government sees
this clearly, too—despite the hostile
eastern influences to which Judge
Prowse alludes.
It is olten said that Sir Wilfrid's
greatest domestic achievement will be
the building of the Orand Trunk
Pacific, with wbicb his name will
ever be linked, as Sir John Macdon-
ald's is with the Canadian Pacific;
but we think that, alike iu the historic glory which it will impart to
Its creator, and iu the material and
national results to How from its
building, the establishing of a new
route ol commerce between North
America and Kurope through the
northern waters of Canada will far
transcend the National Transcontinental enterprise, tremendous as it is.
'The new transcontinental system
will be an addition to Canada's resources; but the Hudson Hay route
will be not an addition but a multiplier. The feat of bringing this
great central plain of Western Canada—the veritable granary of the
empire—nearer to the markets of the
empire by one thousand miles is one
ol those stupendous achievements
whose consequences are not compatible.
"The opportunity has enme to Sir
Wilfrid to have his name associated
forever with this world-shaking achievement in transportation. The
completion of the mad to the bay,
the establishing ol a modern seaport
on our northern inland sea, nnd the
opening ol n new sea-route through
the nay and straits will he the
crowning accomplishment ol the
Laurier regime."

At the summer graduation at
Aberdeen University, Principal
Qeorge Adam Smith, who presided,
announced a gift <>i £10,1100 from
Lord Stratheona, high commissioner
for Canada, -.'liana-! Ior of the university, for the endowment of a
chair of agriculture. Lord Stratheona has hitherto heen a munlficeiil
donor of money to the university,
his financial assistance contributing
largely towards the completion of
the Marl Sell a I College buildings.
Reporting, as president of the
board of education, on the distribution of the lasl treasury grant ol
£100,000 amongst university colleges iu (ireat Hritain and the three
colleges in Wales, Mr. Runclman
states that the growth of important
universities in the liritisli Dominions
Beyond the Seas and in the Empire
of India, and the rapid Improvements in the means of communication, have brought new opportunities and new responsibilities to
those who ure entrusted with the
provision of university education.
The necessity for n regular interchange of views and for the better
organization of facilities for
vanced study throughout the empire
has led tin- universities of Oxford
Cambridge and London to issue Invitations to the universities of the
empire to a conference to be held iu
the metropolis in 1012, and there
can be no doubt that this is the lirst
step towards a closer union and sympathy, which cannot hut lune the
most far-reaching ami beneficial effects.
Hy 15 votes to 2'.i the London county council has decided that il is not
expedient    that    lhe pictures   of the
Jeffries aud Johnson tight at     IU	
should be exhibited in London. Captain Sw-iitton, Lhe chief municipal
reform whip, in seconding the resolution, said: "The lighl was boomed as a fight between black and
white, and the result is all the more
dangerous on thai account. The
council must remember what the
empire really i.s, and (lie many colored races ol which it is composed.
Here, ut the top of the empire, we
ought to set them a good example,
and then they may follow the lead
of London."
The latest victim to the mulign Influence ot X rays is Mr. Harry W.
Cox, who has just died trom X lay
dermatitis, contracted during researches and 'nvestigatlons in the
science, of which he was a pioneer.
It is fifteen years since Mr. Cox took
up X ray research, and it was early
in his investigations that he contracted tbe incurable disease. Nevertheless, he continued his work until
seven years ago the progress of the
disease compelled him to retire from
active work. A sum of 4'2lHt was
grunted him by the treasury, and
£2001) was raised and invested on
bis behalf. Nothing, however, could
check the progress of the disease.
Mr. Cox repeatedly underwent operations; in fact, he lived under sentence for over ten years. The list
of Hritish martyrs to this agonizing
Iseasc, for which there is no known
relief, numbers now no fewer than in
persons.

Efforts are now being made, with
success, lo increase the supply of
Hritish eggs. This is evidenced by
the fact tbat in .Suffolk the Fram-
liugham and District Agricultural
Co-Operative Society has, during the
past six months, dealt with no fewer
than 1,016,161 eggs—an increase of
t7.3,lflfi over the total for tbe corresponding half year. It is stated
that, with more support on the
part ot the farmers, even these large
figures might he still further increased. This society collects eggs
from fanners and poultry-keepers iu
the district, markets them, and distributes the profits obtained amongst
its members.
There is every prospect {if ihe
beet sugar growing industry being established in Kent and Sussex. \\ a
meeting of agriculturists at Tun-
bridge Wells recently, Mr. it. w.
Denver stated that Mr. Courthopc,
Ml',, had informed him of the prospect ol a company being established
in the district for lhe purpose of
carrying on the industry. The site
selected for the factory was at
Ticehurst, Sussex. close to the
Ticehurst road station on the South
Eastern and Chatham railway. If
Mr. Courthopc could get promises of
the produce of 2000 acres or more
tlie factory would be in good working
order for dealing with next year's
crop of sugar beet. Tbe capitalists
who had come into the scheme had
done so, not prima* ily to make a
profit out of the industry, hut to assist agriculture.

HUDSON BAY ROUTE
EAHL GREY HAS STARTED   ON
IMPORTANT TRIP*
Karl Grey bus stinted ou his five
thousand mile circle of the Canadian
hinterlands through the district of
Keewatin, through Hudson Hay, and
around hy the Labrador coast and
Newfoundland, bael; to Montreal.
Tbe party will take the lake route
In Winnipeg, and after spending n
few days there will leave there about
August X by steamer for Norwaj

peg. From there the party will go
by canoa down the Hayes river flvo
hundred miles lo Port Nelson, undet
the guidance of Major Moo-die, and
four picked men ol lhe Royal North
West, Mounted Police.
It is expected thai the trip down
the river will lie made In less than
two weeks, although en route his
excellency may take a day or so
off, looking for some of the game of
Hie northern wilds.
The original Intention ol making
ibe trip in record time has been
abandoned, In view ol the fact thai
Earl Grey is now to remain another
winter In Canada, and has more
time at bis- disposal than he thoughl
when the trip was first planned lasi

N. S , on August 2 The steamer
will take them first to Kort Churchill, and then up through Hudson
Hay, calling probably at Chesterfield
Inlet, the northernmost mounted police post in Eastern Canada, before
moving through Hudson Strait and
down the Labrador coast.
His Excellency intends to make a
fairly leisurely Journey with a view
in becoming thoroughly acquainted
with the character of the country and

PICNIC
The annual outing ol the Baptist
Bible School last Thursday was a
successful and enjoyable affair. Tbe
al tendance was unusually large, Outlay was line and Leafy Dell, near
St. Joseph's Brook, gave ample
.shade and room fnr the romps and
races, the fun and frolic of the juveniles. Roko and baseball, swinging
nnd just the restful, shady nook, as
well as the ample supper and the ex-
eillng races all received enthusiastic
attention. So did the camera and
the basket of fruit. Superintendent
Shepherd and bis fellow workers
were congratulated nn the success nf
the day and the ,;o,iil work of the
year. The following boys and girls
won prizes iu the races: First, Kthel
Clark, Charlie Clapp, Vadu Boy ter,
Herbert Stewart, Douglas Stewart,
Harold Bridges and Irene Wade;
second, Kthel Dow, Prank Bridges,
Beulah Stewart, Robert Birch, Allen
Brown,    II.   Stewart    and      Irving

made as    to  wbo   else should Ik- on
fair for the winner, Susie, who took
the lead straight away and beat Adelaide and Sophie in fifteen lengths in
54 seconds.
There were five athletic events. The
first was a hundred jards race for
which five entries were received. Tyler won this by six inches from
Brechin, with llul.t ri and Garrett
third and fourth, A, 0, Raworth
who was only a few inches behind tho
winner, fell when three yards from
home. Tyler's time, 12 seconds,
must be considered good for such a
course.
For the 22(1 yards race six started.
Brechin won this bv a foot from the
Indian Sam, with thu rest a long
way behind.     No time was taken.
Brechin also won the high jump,
clearing 5 ft. 2 in. Hubert failed at
1 ft. it in. and the Indian Sam al
a ft, 2 in.
The last event was a run, bop,
step and jump. Brechin again proved successful with HR ft. 7 in. to his
credit. Huber, who was second,
cleared *tn ft. -i in. Probably ho
would have put up a better figure, as
he thought he bad another chance. In
this lie was iu error, though the incident lead to a considerable discussion.
Taken altogether lhe meeting was a
luecess, the various events being run
oil promptly during the afternoon.
The Cranbrook citv bund played some
excellent music, which was much appreciated.

Sick kidneys give many signals of
distress.
The secretions are dark, contain a
sediment.
Passages arc frequent, scanty,
painful.
Back ache is Constant, day and
night.
Headaches and dizzv spells are frequent.
The weakened kidneys need quick
help.
Don't delay! Use a special kidney
remedy.
Booth's Kidney Pills cure sick kidneys, backache and urinary disorders.
Mm. M. E. Pan, of 202 John
Street, Steel ton, Out., says:
I have found more actual results
after using Booth's Kidney Pills than
I did from any other remedy ever
used. 1 had suffered ,or several
years witb kidney and bladder
trouble and after a .short course of
treatment with this medicine I have
been cured. Miserable pains across
my back which would extend up my
spine and Into the lack ol my head,
frequent headaches .ml dizziness and
kidney secretions lhat were scant>
and contained a heavy sediment had
me all run down. These troubles
have atl left me and I auv-pleased to
give Booth's Kidney Pills my best
wishes    for   success and my hearty
ndorsement. For sale in Cranbrook by tbe Beattie-Murphy Co.
