The Last Hours of Parliament Were Interesting
Victoria, Mar. 12.—With the usual
tin nial speech Irom the Moutouaut
Governor, the legislature was prorogued tonight, a consummation thai
wliile devoutly wished hy many, was
lht< last thing expected Ihis week, as
iccentlv as two Jays ago. In fart it
w.is only tho stithleu weakening t>( .1.
A. Alactlntiulil, Icadci of (lie opposition ami tus followers iu the house
last night Mum made this sudden owl-
lug possible. Even in the city of
Victoria Un1 ending of the session
tonight will L-ome us a surprise to
tnany tomorrow morning. Since
last night, when Mi. Maeduiiuld drew
lhe (olils tif his toga about him ami
stalked out uf the house iu liitj.li
dudgeon, tin* opposition lias Lost its
grip ami the result is that legislation
lias lit'i-n finished that prior to the
opposition leader's defection, wan expected to take at least two weeks to
worry through the house.
At lust night's session J. II, Hawthornthwaite, ou a question of privilege read a story appearing iu yesterday's Colonist, stating that a recent edition of Hansard shows that
Secretary of State Murpliv informed
Mr. Taylor, of New Westminster.
that the nonunion government hail
not received the resolution ol tlie
local house askine that the Imperial
government appoint a Hoval commission to investigate Oriental immigration in this province. Earlv in
tlie session Mr. Hawthornthwaite
had been informed that the resolution
had been sent. The Provincial Secretary replied that the Lieutenant
Governor had received an official noti-
flcatlon from Ottawa that the resolution had been laid before the governor
general in council. Hence it would
seem that Mr. Murphy did not speak |
the truth.
•lohn Oliver asked leave to intro-1
dure an ameudment to the Game Pro- ;
lection Act forbidding the shooting
of birds with rifles. Hon. F. J. I
Fulton asked that the clause should
not be pressed as it would make it
impossible [or the bill to become law
this session. He would give the
matter consideration during the recess. The Provincial Elections Act
nnd the Game Protection Act were
finally passed. Several minor matters were ruthlessly slaughtered ami
the business of the lildfl session was
concluded about 9.30. The lieulcn-
iiul governor reached the house and
gave liis assent to tlie measures passed tinting the session. He then
read tin- usual formal speech and prorogued the house.
The house got through a lot or business ibis    afternoon.     The amend
ment to the Mineral Act was nnssed,
tin* WnlCi Clauses Art was -ivn its
third n-ading, as were (la- Provincial
Elections am, the Game Protection
Ad, the amendment tu the Land
Ail, Hunting land loggers licenses
and the Victoria Water Works Act.
A. K. MePhiU.ps, [hiding thai opposition hud arisen to Ills hill respecting
ihe uhsigumcul of wages, withdrew
(in- measure and Air. [law thorn th-
wultc's .Vomcu's Franchise, Act was
killed. This was the result of thu
-ullnpse of tho opposition at au
-ittiv hour Ihis morning. Finding
(hut the government would not accept all his amendments, J. A. Moc-
iluunld walked out of the chamber,
followed hv his cohorts, with the result that the committee stage of
Water Clauses Act was finished
without debate,
This afternoon the report of the
iiiuiiiittce was adopted and the bill
read a third time without division.
A compromise was also affected yesterday evening on the part of lhe
Provincial Elections Act which was
announced in the house today. The
Alc-lnm-s amendment, providing that a
voter must have been absent from
the riding for a year before his name
■ould be removed, was withdrawn,
tho attorney general substituting a
six mouths' clause instead. Otherwise the bill was passed practically
us presented by the government and
there was no trouble this afternoon.
Some amendments offered bv .lohn
Oliver (o the Game Protection Act
this afternoon were accepted. They
impose a very heavy penalty for
shooting big game out of season. For
mountain sheep, grouse, cariboo, the
penalty was not less than $25U or
more than $5(10, No bears of any
species may be trapped south of thc
line af the C.P.R. Following out a
recommendation in the game warden's
report, automatic shot guns are forbidden, though this clause will not
(nine into force until ample notice
has been given. Beaver who have
been doing damage may be killed after leave lias been obtained from the
game warden. Hawthornthwaite
pressed for au amendment, aimed at
Orientals, which provided that all
except voters or men who have been
on the voters1 list and their families,
should have in pay a general license
uf $25. It was pointed out that
this would work a hardship on pre-
t-mptois. lion. F. J. Fulton asked
to have the matter stand over till
next session ami in the interval he
would sen whether or not an effective
clause could bo drafted.

of his from North Dakota who were
waiting his report ut Eureka, Mont.
"If I bought this laud," said he,
"what could I do with tbis log I'm
sitting on? Would I have lo give
it to the owner or to the government?"
"You would have to burn it to

"Burn it!" he exclaimed, "I'd not

luxury and delicacies that -the "htuiitl-

tlie very life blood even of ihuse who

wheu il emerged irom embryo. Induced by Hie glowing advertisements,
tilling of tlie glorious free land, tree
raage for cattle and other stock, Hie
settler, poor iu all but hope aud
faith, one of the pioneers in advance
uf the steel road, entered the eouiurt
uy wagon road, hewed for himself aud
family a home in Hie primeval forest, yuur corporation robbed him of
bis means uf truuspuitutiuu to market by destroying the public road,
robbed him of his free range for his
cattle, killed his cattle, killed his
horses and refused the smallest recompense.
Vour subordinates have cut uh the
water supplying ranchers for domestic and irrigation purposes and have
beeu appealed lo iu vain, and when
i laid your case before the railway
commissioners yuur lawyers pleaded
aud uttered tbe llimsy excuse that
they had not had sufficient notice,
and the same with several other complaints.
The capital stuck of one poor farmer was principally iu one pair uf
work uxeu, with which he cultivated
bis laud. Your trains killed one and
tbe poor fellow has not means lo
purchase another to replace it.
One man had a pair uf horses, turned them out on the "free range" tu
graze, one was missing, and be uml
his son were hunting fur weeks under

away, when a prospector, who was
passing, informed him that he .-aw
your seetiou men burying the animal
weeks since, your men having instructions apparently to have such things
put out of sight us quielilv as possible. Such actions hhould not be
permitted, and could easily be undated if your subordinates WviuM
listen to and act upon reason at tic
suggestions, and I can assure \ou
(bill if Ibe same were accepted it
would prove profitable aud much
mole economical to your company
than driving the victims to seek redress before the great tribunal so
wlfielv selected hy parliament to protect the suffering people.
We all acknowledge the great factor vour company has been in the
development and progress of Canada,
and regret very much having to resort to drastic measures to obtain a
small measure of justice; the organization nf your great system lias
earned the admiration of thc world.
We all know that you, the bead of
this great octopus, personally possess
imt only a threat brain, hut a large
Eind sympathetic heart, hut the majority of your subordinates appear to
possess neither; they act as though
they were the representatives of an
immaculate nnd almost omnipotent
power.- But they should not lose
sight of the fnet that without the
I'i'onte vour company could not. cam
dividends, nor build palatial hotels,
and if vou can afford to do the lat-
l"i "in enn rertainlv afford to fence
the laud in settled districts, where
'•nil do sn much duuituT nnd cause sn
much Mifleiiu,', amongst   poor people
' who can ill allotd lo lose their slock.
! it is also poor policy to irritate
vour masters aud alienate the    good
; will of the people,       The great ma-
jjority of the people have a keen sense
uf what is just and unjust and reseat au injustice even if perpetrated
on their enemy. That is the reason
the railway commission is held in
such high esteem by the people; rail-
. wav companies cannot point out  one
'single unjust decision; true,   as    the
[monitor of the naughty, selfish corporations it has   applied the    whip
I where necessary and   the usual howl
lis emitted.
|    What is tbe sovereign power?   The
(people! Parliament the judiciary and corporations are their servants. To this remark, which 1
made at the sitting in Nelson, the
chief commissioner replied: "Mr.
Watts tells us something we don't
know." 1 was perfectly well aware
ibat bis lordship did know it,
that it was a platitude; hut sometimes those high in power have a
lapse of memory on such matters, especially large corporations.
I I therefore suggest in the interests
of all concerned, and for saving the
time of the commissioners, that your
j companv appoint duly accredited officials invested with full power to
act promptly or give written promise
of compliance to all legal and reasonable demands, and I will promise
i lo do all I can towards effecting a
reasonable settlement that will be
satisfactory to all concerned.
I mav add that 1 am acting purely
iu an honorary capacity in these
matters and no pecuniary considerations are involved in any way.
The foregoing and your reply will
he given to the press.

The question of expert mental agricultural stations came up in parliament thc other day and aroused a
general discussion in which the niein-
s tin Vale-Cariboo and Kootenay
li a proiuincul part. Thu idea is
an excellent one, and South Kast
Ivoolenaj. with its thousands oi
acres of available fruit lauds and a
great and growing market tlirhl at
iiaad, is surely entitled to a station
to further demonstrate in a niaeiuui
and scientific way, tho availability
ni these lands for this purpose. Tbe
report from Ottawa savs:
The question under discussion
was tlie need of more agricultural experimental farms and stations. It came up on a resolution introduced hy Mr. Lapolnto,
ol Kamouraska, settiitE forth thai
in the interests of agriculture
experimental stations should be
located wherever conditions permitted throughout Canada. A
large number of members took
part in the discussion, and the
result was that the minister of
agriculture was inundated with
suggestions of suitable locations
fur experimental farms.
Mr. Fisher accepted the resolution, staling that he was ut the
present time considering the establishment of three more farms.
Mr. Martin Hun ell, in thc
course of the debate, dealt with
the promise of the future of British Columbia in the horticultural
line. The government station at
Agassiz had proved of little value,
but this was due to its location.
British Columbia wanted a station iu the semi-arid district. He
ditt not think the government had
recognized thc importance ol irrigation. Mr. Burrcll said the
fruit industn of British Colnmhia
is one which is getting to he of
enormous importance to Canada
and he hoped t he minister would
see his wav clear to look into
the matter at once and establish
a station at a point in British
Columbia where he considered it
would do the most •"•nd.
A.S. Qoodeve, Kootenay, pressed
upon the government the necessity
of further experiments in thc
growing of fruit for the purpose
nf improving the market values
nl fruits. Sueh work, he was
confident, would much more than
|jiiv for itself.
Mr. Mugroth mild n tribute to
the work done hv the station at
Indian Mead.
.Mr. Fisher announced that one
of the new stations would be located on Vancouver Island. lu
regard to these arid districts it
wns dillinilt to find a suitable location.

Bowser is a good lawyer hut he is

demonstrate this fact.
The Herald is still independent.
What is the use of criticising Martin Barrcll's speeches before Canadian
luhs in the east simply because he is
a Conservative member ol thc Dominion house. This is carrying partisanship to an unfortunate extreme.
Mr. Burrcll is a Conservative, and he
is also a polished gentleman and an
eloquent speaker and has shown bv
his actions for the past few years
that he is thoroughly interested in
the advancement of British Columbia. No man from British Columbia, who is a member of parliament
carries more weight in what he savs
iirding this province than Mr. Bur-
arid this petty criticism is as
nonsensical as it is puerile.
It is said that Mr. McBride will
anneal to the country next time on a
railway policy. We are pleased to
see this evidence of progress on tbe
pari of the premier, and vet feel
nvtisfled that if he had displayed the
mirage of his convictions bv brinuin
tlown a well-defined railway policy at
lhe recent session so that the neonle
could have had actual performance to
depend     upon     rather than political
promises he would have been stronger with the people.      British Columbia, like Manitoba, is   working     the
political promise game overtime and
as a result the actual  development of
ie province is being neglected, What
■ritish Columbia wants is a bona title
iiilwaj  policy     and not a political
lilwnj    policy.        The Lord knows

Olik LACkUttt CLUB
Ou Tuesday night in the committee
room of the Cranbrook hotel a large
assembly of young men were gathered together lo discuss the aspects
ami formation of a lacrosse club—
i tan-brook's young men, this is of in-
leicst to you!
Air. DuUeck took the chair, and after a unanimous agreement iu the af-
llrmativc of such a formation, the
various olhcers of lhe club were elected. The earnestness thrown into the
scheme augured well for its ultimate
\ oiuig men, this is -ning to be no
"got up" urtair, because it has no,
to go. Here in Cranbrook is lots of
splendid material—it has to lie got
hold oi. "Upon what lines will it
he run'.'" will be asked by manv
"What sitppurt will the club obtain
from ihe tradesmen of the city?"
will be asked by others. "1 just
wonder now if it wilt be a sticcess'.',r
and other such questions will he asked.
Upon what lines will it be run,
Pure!** and simply amateur, aud it
is hoped that every man will stick
to his guns and the assured success
of an amateur lacrosse club is absolute. About the smmort to he
obtained it was said in the meeting
that several tradesmen bad been approached and had promised their support; in fact some were very enthusiastic about it, (living as their
opinion that il will make it useful addition to the many games of spurt
that take place here in the summer
This is not going to be a one season affair. The club is being put
upon au entirely new basis and worked upon somewhat different lines to
previous years. It is hoped that
everyone will join who can. With a
little practice, who knows what talent there is amongst us. As to it
bciniT a success, the vourr men have
gol to practice and take for their
notto: "United we stand," and suc-
css is assured.
There is to be another ineet-
ng on Fridav March 30th, to hear

Last night the Cranhrook citv band
gave their St. Patrick's dav concert
and it was au unqualified success.
The Irish selections hv the band
imiicr the direction of Bandmaster
Corrison, were particularly pleasing.
It is n fact that in music people like
the things that arc familiar to them
and which   thev know, consequently
Kathleen Mavournecn," "Tara's
Hulls" and "Killarncy" were exceptionally well received. In fact
every number rendered li- the band
was food and showed what can he
done by good instruction and continual practice. The bovq made -mod
and Mr. Corrison has everv reason
to coiiirratulate himself on the wav
iu which he has made a really trood
hand in Cranhrook. Mis. II. Kidd's
violin solos were distinctly good.
She handles   her    instrument as one
who knows how. Her rendition of
Birch's fantasia of Irish airs hroUflu
forth much applause and a well deserved encore. Mrs. W. J. DcBeck's
singing was, as usual, most excellent.
"Come Back to Erin," is always a
gem, but Mrs. DcBeck's rendering of
it udded to its lustre. Little Miss
Maudlc Short's piano solo reflected
great credit upon her and her instructor, Mr. H. C. C. Salmon. Mr.
II. K. Stevens' song "Father
o'Flynn" was verv well received.
Taken as a whole the hand can con-
"Tatulatc themselves upon the fact
that they put up a good concert and
"me ihe -icrmlc their mom-v's worth.
The members of the hand wish to
tender their thanks to those who so
ah!,F assisted them ut their concert,
Including the accompanists, The
dance afterwards was kctit un until
3 a.m. to the strains of the Cranhrook oreheslrn.
The Kink Mercantile Co., Ltd.. one
of' the best known mercantile houses

This means a whole lot to the neonle
of this district. Whenever the Fink
Mercantile compati" attemnt to do
anv thing they accomplish results.
With this new departure in view Hi *
will immediately start to change the
arrangements of their hitr store to accommodate this new line. Mr. Kink,
the manaeer of the company will
soon go east for the purpose of making the selections of stock and it
eoes without suyinc that it will lie
one of the beat ever tillered for sale
iu this district. Not onl<- will the
Kink's idea is to place the prices ol
stock he one of the best, hut Mr,
this new tine on n basis that will
prove attractive to every family    in
Cranbrook and the district. "We
can sell furniture at low prices in
this town and still make a reasonable
profit," said Mr. Fink. "Cranhrook is growim*- and the need of (ur-
niture is ulso growing, We want
to supply the demand and at nriees
that will suit the conditions of the
community. Our stock will he complete in every respect and we simply
ask those who contemplate btivlng
furniture to wait until our invoice
arrives ami I feel assured thiit we
can sutisfy the people."

Rambling Reveries
Leave your homes with loving
words—they aiay be yom lost.
Love is the best and strongest
thing mi earth, inn Impatience    ran
Kill It.
Speak kindly, it encourages the
downcast, cheers the sorrowing and
often wakens the erring to earnest
resolves to do better.
Parents arc indebted to thoir children fur Lhe constant incentives to
n'oble living; for the perpetual reminder that you do not live In yourself alone; for thoir sakes vou arc
admonished tn put from von tho debasing appetite, the unworthy example of impulse; to gather into your
bus every noble and heroic nuality,
ever)  lender and attractive grai e.
Foi n home to be a home in thc
highest bcuso <'t the worn, ami not
meral) a place tu sleep and rat,
each nnmiit't ui ih.' i.iiniH must contribute in*, or hei share, There must
In- forbearance, symputh) and love.
A great deal depends on the parents.
The) should in tho early childhood
of thru children teach them to
make the homo the dearest place on
earth, The aged live more In the
past than the present, Their reveries are principally of their bovhood
ami girlhood. How necessary than
that these days be made happy, that
thru reveries may give them plca-
sure. h is not a perfect home
where the initiates hold themselves
aloof, li is where the guest is ever
welcome, where friends delight to
fi.me and come again. Those that
bhut themselves from the world he-
eume selllsh and narrow-minded. It
requires Interchange of thought to expand lhe iiiiutl. Ami what is more
delightful than the hupp) interchange
ui thought between friends in a
hupp) home.
Kindness is one oi the purest traits
that finds a place in the human lieaii.
it gives us friends wherever we may
chuiicu io wander. To show kindness n is nut necessary to give large
sums of money or to perform such a
wonderful deed that will Immortalize
i,um name. It is tlie word of sympathy to the discouraged and disheartened. Kindness makes sunshine
wherever il goes; it is the real law
of life; the link that connects earth
With heaven. Would vou live in the
remembrance of others after vou are
gone.' Write your name ou thc tablets of kindness and love. The noblest revenge we can make upon our
enemies is to do them a Kindness.
Ii is customary, i ml seems to lie
natural, fur blessings to erighten as
they take their flight, the little hour
of joy that was yesterday's portion,
brief ami humble though it mav have
been, becomes uf a roseate hue and
four-fold Important when viewed in
the iiuLiiiuij. ii_nis nf 'ctrospection.
Countless numbers ol us are chanting
the burden of that tender lay:
"Backward, Linn   backward, u 'lime
in thy flight,
Make mo a child   again just for   tonight."
And to many the desire is largely
prompted by visions ol lost opportunities and misspent lives. The ftat
recurring theme, "It might have
been," which tells the history, in
brief, uf many lifetime mistakes, is
common to us all as we repeat ihe
words with a sigh, realizing all loo
bile, ..in  former blindness and folly.
Alain of us limi life hard and lull
of pain. The world uses us rud-.'v
ami roughly. We suffer wrongs and
Injuries, in her people's clumsy feet
tread upon our tender spirits. We
mas! endure misfortunes, trials and
disappointments. We cannot avoid
these things, hut we should not
allow the harsh experiences to deaden our sensibilities or make us stoi-
cnl or sour. The true problem of
living fs to Keep our hearts sweet and
gentle in Lhe hardest condition and
experiences. If you remove the
snow from the hillside in the late
winter, you will find sweet flowers
growing there beneath the cold drifts,
unhurt hv lhe storm and hy the
snowy blankets that have covered
them. So should we Keep our hearts
tender and sensitive beneath life's
fiercest winter blasts, and through
the longest vears of sn fie rim?, and
even in Injustice and wron- treatment.       This is true victorious liv-
(Lethbridge Herald.)
South African veterans' scrip has
become uf considerable commercial
interest during ibe past two mouths,
so much so in fact that from the
price of *5U lu $75 which was asked
six months ago, the value has    ud-
\anted tu $KaU to $750 within the
last couple ui weeks ami eases have
oeen reported where prices as high as
:-l,mm have beeu offered. The de-
mum! is verv active, not only from a
speculative, but from an Investment
ihe question has beeu asked where
does the value of this scrip lie? Tbe
answer is simple—through the possession of a piece uf this .scrip it is
possible for a man with but little
capital to secure absolute title to a
full section of government land. Kor
instance, a man buys a piece of scrip
foi $7UU, He chooses the district
and seleets the half section of government land whieh he wishes to eu-
iei on, und liled according to regulations. Then he may homestead a
quartet section adjoining, ur near at
hand, and it he is within the prescribed area, be may also pre-empt
another quarter section, ur a full section in all. To obtain title all that
is necessary is to perform the required homestead duties, the duties
on I In- strip being identical with
thus.- of the homestead. The cost
of the pre-emption will he $480, but
lhe payments on this are so distributed that they would he scarcely
lilt. Title to this miartcr section is
secured when the homestead duties
have been completed and payments
mat ue spread over a period o! six
vears, In other words for u cash
outlay of less than $1,200 for the
laud, a title may he secured to a
mil section, worth on a most reasonable estimate Jit) an acre or $8,400
ul the end of three years. Of
course, to secure title, residence on
Hie land is essential, hut il the
homesteader is willing to work, it is
a simple matter tu [ml. sufficient bind
under crop to leave a neat balance in
the bank after paying for all necessary buildings, stock and implements.
Speculators have taken an active
interest iu scrip for several reasons.
Primarily they arc often in a position lo act us Intermediary between
the owner and the actual settler
realizing a handsome profit on thc
turnover. Then again a man with
hand tu sell may the more readily
secure a customer il he has in hand
ti scrip which may be located on land
.near at hand.       The attraction     is
j much greater to the bona fide settler
I who is always anxious to secure as
much laud as possible at the minimum cost.
j ii is difficult to arrive at the actual number of these scrip available
fur purchase, for while each     South
[African volunteer or his heirs is
entitled lo one, a considerable    num-
jbei have taken advantage of thc
generous offer of the government aud
[are preparing to complete their title
by living on thc land.     A low cstl-
; male of thc number fur sale is placed
al 5,000, a considerable percentage of
[which have already handed in the
hands of speculators. At first there
was considerable uncertainty in the
minds of the volunteers as to    what
| their scrip entitled them to, and consequently many were disposed of at
very low figures. Speculators who
were alive to the situation and were
willing to take a chance picked    up
| considerable numbers of these and
have made big money on them.
Htii a word of warning should be
sounded to the prospective buyer.
There can he but one transfer, or as
ii is officially termed, but one substitute appointed. lu this transfer,
tin- volunteer assigns his rights to
ihe substitute on u blank form provided by the department, which assignment must be accepted and rccis-
leietl by the interior department al
Ottawa before it has effect. The
grantee has not the authority to appoint another substitute, and the
substitute may not assign his right.
No appointment of a substitute can
be accepted or recognized by the department which is not executed and
dated after the date of the warrant
for the land grant issued by thc
minister of militia in favor of the
volunteer, A substitute may be appointed either before or after the entry is made by the grantee, and if tho
settlement duties have been performed by the grantee they may be com-
pletcd by the substitute.
Tin- ordinary homestcud provisions
ot the Dominion Lands Act apply to
perfecting of the entry and the performance uf the duties.
What is politeness.' It consists of
a sincere and honest desire to pro-
inule the happiness uf those around
us, and not of false smiles and Hat-
luring words. The word politeness
means real Kindness, Kindly expressed
and also good breeding ur elegance
oi manners. it is a trait which
everyone admires and which confers
iipuii us possessor a charm thai dues
much lu puvc tne w.n to bucccss. it.
litis been said that a 'Alan's manners
form Ida fortune." Whether this is
really so or not, it is certain that
ins manners form Ins reputation, If
ins manners come directly from     a
kind heart, the) will please though
Ihci  he destitute ni graceful polish.
Politeness is ..- mueh required at
home us elsewhere. We should du
things willing.) and cheerfully, Shall
nets of kindness mako life more pleasant ami desirable thev make the difficulties uf life seem more triiline
and help to wipe away Hie tears and
sorrow. Ue should always show the
greatest puliieness and deference tu
our friends and parents. Some persons are polite everywhere, but at
home and there they are rude indeed.
Perhaps if ihey are asked a question
and they are occupied they will
scowl ami mutter something over to
themselves and pay no attention to
that one who spoke, as though they
were too Insignificant. How does it
sound to hear a person say "yes"
and "no" to everyone, especially to
their seniors? Then- is scarcely anv-
tliim- more Important In a child than
good breeding.
While it is comparatively easy to
he polite toward strangers, ur toward people of distinction, whom we
meet in society or on public occasions, still it should be remembered
that 11 is al home, in the familv that
an everyday politeness is really most
prized, euming as it should from the
kindly feeling of thc heart.
A very pretty story ol how honesty
is the best policy is just now going
the rounds of thc press. Thc well
known Norris it Itowe's circus fell
upon unhappy times, owing to the
earthquake iu lilOti, u poor season
in Mexico and the floods in Arizona,
In fact, tu put it plainly the show
"went broke." Unable to meet their
obligations thev were forced into
bankruptcy, their property sold under
ihe hammer, and Uie labor uf years
passed away. This is thu pretty
part of the story. In the successful
days, II. S. Howe grub-staked a
friend of boyhood days to Ci.trtiU mid
l him to Alaska lu seek his fortune. That was the last heard uf
I.e Hoy, ur the two thousand dollars.
When the news uf the buukrupiev
proceedings were published through
the laud, I.e Hoy in iiis Alaska home
read uf his friend's trouble, and it
occurred to him that a little balance
was coming to Howe out of thc
grub slake. Me gut pretty busy
with the telegraph wires and as a remit Rowo, who was considered down
ind out, wus made aware that $158,-
000 was bis. Mr. Howe Immediately
purchased his show back, and then
he did an act that the angels in
heaven have no doubt recorded. He
made out checks hi full payment of
100 eents on the dollar for all tho
creditors who had settled their
claims against him on a 15 per cent
basis. Of course, according to law
tliese bills were already paid and
Rowe was free from obligations in
anv way, but he could not see it that
The Greater Norris &■ Itowe circus,
with Air. S. Rowe, sole owner and
general manager, without owing nnv
man a dollar will take the road in
ihe spring.
This man Howe deserves success,
ami he will no doubt meet with it.

(Wall street Journal)
The scene of the greatest activity
on the railroad map today lies tn the
northwest country. In tins situation tin- Canadian Pacific railroad is
playing the leading part. Us as-
gressiva president and its board <>t
managers already have obtained two
transcontinental routes; u third is m
tiit- bud, to wit, via thc Soo Canal
and Duluth, South Shore & Atlantic
road lu Dututli, and thenco over the
Soo lines to the twin cities ami the
Pacific coast.
And there is the fourth, a possibility, perhaps ul greater monivnt than
all tliu rest. Will the Canadian Pacific attempt to buy all or a part ol
i lie Pore Marquette'.' As mav tent-rally be known, the Canadian Pacific has a water-grade line irom Montreal down along the St. Lawrence,
along the Lakes ol Ontario ami Brie
lo IH'troit.
By purchasing control ol the Pere
Marquette (oi a portion ul it In case
that one is dismembered) its hue
from Montreal to Detroit could he
extended to Chicago, and thenco over
the Wisconsin Central and the Soo-
C.I'.H. route into Spokane and Portland ui other north l'acilic points.
The purchase u( the Wisconsin Central by the Canadian Paciflo people is
fraught Willi tremendous possibilities
oi development. The most active
adversnry of lhe Canadian Pacific
north of its main transcontinental
line is the Canadian Northern, back-
led by those forceful, aggressive and
financially well-hacked nun, Messrs.
Mackenzie & Mann. They appear to
have no lack of resources, and their
lines are spreading out in all directions throughout that empire which
used to he called the Northwest Territories.
Then, again, lhe Canadian Pacific
lias also iu contend with the Grand
Trunk Pacific. Of course, the habit
is lo dull this latter road a joke. Vet
the Canadian Pacific itself was looked upon as a disastrous undertaking
while it Wiis under construction, and
this, notwithstanding the fact that
it had a 25,000,000 acre land grant
from the Canadian government, $25,-
imn.ljOO cash bounty, together with
other sundry bounties.
Thc Grand Trunk Pacific is also
well subsidized. All the force of the
Canadian government and Sir Wilfrid
Laurier are hack ol the enterprise.
Its ill-wishers are wont to sneer ami
point out that it traverses a barren
laud. Iiui all the while unbiased
judges on this side of the lino are
willing to give proper weight to
those authorities ol lhe government
who, besides declaring that the entire northwest country as far north
'as at leasl lhe fllty-lltth parallel of
I north latitude is not only rich in
mineral aud oilier resources ot the
earth, but that even to here and tho
very verge of tho Arctic circle there
is an abundant field for the growing
of wheal and cereals.
Considerable lime may lie taken In
finishing the Grand Trunk Pacific pro-
Meet. No doubt scandal ami rumors
:of scandal; or graft and rumors of
graft, will creep out from time tn
time. Inn eventually there is little
doubt thai the Grand Trunk Pacific
will prove the faith which its founders have put in it,
At tiny rate, it is clear io he seen
that to tho north of it the Canadian
Pacific is engaged in serious competition and rivalry with two large ami
Lcsourccfttl systems, which are engaged in building two transcontincntals
from the Atlantic tn the Pacific.
The Canadian Pacific immediately
to the south has to contend with the
Great Northern and the various Hill
interests. The Great Northern is
constantly following and expanding
and aggressive course. J. .1. Hill
and his corps of engineers and surveyors have been periodically engaged I
In the country north ol the American-j
Canadian frontier; lines would be laid
out, construction started and lines
completed. Then one would hear !
that the Canadian Pacific had retaliated. Perhaps it would he one
thing, or perhaps it would be a coali-
lloiiwitb K. H. llariiman, givinn thc
C.P.R. a route through Spokane, in
almost exclusively Hill territory,
ovci ihe lines of the Oregon Railroad
»v Navigation company to Portland
ami Columbia river points.
The Canadian Pacific has let statements go undented that it proposes
to build down to Seattle and beyond,
aud Mr, Hill makes no secret of the
fait Ibat he is bound to Winnipeg.
There is no iloiihl that Air. Hill has
large ambitions for placing his lines
in the territory running from Winnipeg through the Crows Nest Pass
district, and the Canadian Pacific
Recent operations of the Canadian
Pacific iu American territory south of
the lakes are ol a character which
should prove startling to some of the
toads in aud adjacent to that territory.
With apparent ease and with the
expenditure of only a few millions at
the most, Sn Thomas yiiaughnessy
has acquired control of the Wisconsin Central, giung the Canadian Pao
lie nu cut ranee from tbe twin cities
to Chicago, and another line from
Duluth to Chicago.
There is a lartre tide of Unfile,
both passenger and freight, from Chicago and middle western points into
ibe Canadian Northwest, and vice
versa. Tlie Canadian Pacific is
largely without the restrictions of
the Interstate Commerce Commission, and to all intents and purposes
it is arbiter of the rate-making power to and from western and middle
western Canadian points to Chicago
and middle western American points.
He bad already got as far as Minneapolis and St. Paul wiih his Soo
line, and already had developed two
transcontinental routes, one along
thc north of Lake Superior and via
Port Arthur; another via thc Soo
Canal and the Soo line to St. Paul-
Minneapolis, and now be has two
more—one in the bud and the other
a possibility.
It Sir Thomas Shaughness"- is able
to acquire control of the Dctrolt-
Chicaco line nf the Pere Marquette
and link up with the Wisconsin Central, he will have perhaps ibe best,
of all his various transcontinental
Tbe Wisconsin Central line from
St. Paul to Chicago is not so direct
as that of tbe St. Paul or tbe Rur-
lingtou. but it, is nevertheless a fair
line, wiih good possibilities.
ft would not he surprising if the
Caundian line from Chicago to Portland. Oregon, and to British Columbia Ik the   shortest of all routes be
tween the points iu question, .lusl
as the Canadian Pacific line fioin the
Twin Cities to Portland is Lhe shorl-
ust today.
What ' will he the result of thi*
policy uf aggiession on the part ot
the Canadian Pacific is somewhat oi
a question, Much will depend upon
how tar it govs. Certain it is, that
the plans ul the Canadian Pacific
have been laid out with extreme
shrewdness, squall' certain it is that
thev have been executed with a fa
ein'lj and raw which must excite admiration.
But in tho meantime there are
gome     ■ c    and able  railroad
men who have large Interests in that
countrv iu which the Canadian Pacific has liven ven urn v There is a
hue lievunri which the Canadian
Pacific "cannot pass with Impunity.
And then- is every reason to believe
that the diplomat who has already
shown his shrewdness of design and
facility of execution will know    ibat
line when he sees It, ui'.d not  VOntUTO
beyond it.

What is the matter with lormlng a
"What Have Vou Done?" club. A
"What Have vou Done?" eluh is
simply this; it is a booster club
without any dues, devoted to advertising the town ami district, First
uf all a meeting is held and organization completed. A month later
thc individuals assemble together
again and each one tells what he bus
done iu that time. One states that
lie has forwarded an article descriptive of Kaslo tu some English or
Eastern Canadian periodicals that
are always on the lookout for anything relating to the west, anolhei
states that he sent a photograph ol
something of local note to an Illustrated weekly; still another tells how
he wrote personal letters to a number of angling friends of Ids, describing the advantages iu lhe sporting
line that Kaslo offers to fishermen in
ihe summer while another fells ol
having sent out a number ot local
view postcards, for his friends to
scatter around, aud so forth and so
forth. Then- arc a number of such
ways which may he taken to advertise Kaslo at slight cost. Anv member of "A What Have Vou Doner'
club who failed to report each month
would be assessed a small line of a
quarter or ball a dollar. Each member should he required to hrliif in a
recruit every six months.
(Toronto Globe.)
Mr. Kraser, uf WeUaiid, has a bill
in the legislature to provide compensation for train hands injured or
allied in the discharge ut their
duty. The law at present gives
compensation only where injury results from defective machinery or
equipment, or where it is due to tbe
fault or negligence of some other
employee. The unfortunate record
of accidents among train crews during recent vears shows that in the
organization of the army of Industry
ihey are continually in the posts ot
danger. Their lives arc constantly
nsKetl in useful industry, and many
ait- killed and maimed hv accidents
which are neither their own faults
nor due to any defect in equipment or
in anv culpable act or omission bv
fellow.employes. The bill does not
eive compensation when Injury results from au employe's own serious
or willful misconduct. In that re-
spec! it falls short of tbe British
law, which compensates for all
fatalities or injuries in the great
army of industry. It extends thu
provisions of the present compensation law to cover cases iu which accidents result not through a fault
on anybody's part, but through the
necessarily hazardous nature ol the
The same obligation felt toward
those who suffer through the risking
ol lives tn.defence of the Empire
should extend to those who suffer
through the taking of risks at the
danger points in tho peaceful armv of
Industry. The railway cornorations
an- made liable as in Britgin. As
their affairs are now missing under
public supervision, and their outlays
and liabilities will he taken into account iu determining freight rates,
this obligation will not be a serious
hardship. The cost will be shifted
to lhe public through a proportionate
allowance in freight charges. The
hill should receive favorable consideration bv tbe government.
Don't be a knocker, for what is
, this world to a man when bis wife is
a widow? So cheer up, and, above
all, don't he a knocker. If there is
a chance to boom business, boom it.
Don't pull a long face and look as
if you had a sour stomach. Hold
up our head, smile and look lor
better things. Hide your little
hammer and try to speak well of others, no matter how small you mav
reatlv know'yourself to lie, When a
stranger meets you jolly him. Tell
him this is the greatest country on
earth—and it is. Don't discourage
him by speaking ill of your neighbors. Lead him l" believe that he
has at last struck a pluee where the
right people live. Don't knock. Help
i yourself along by becoming popnhn
ami push friends with vou. It's
dead easy. Be a good fellow and
you will have a ■■. ssion (lf followers. No man cvet got help himself
hy knocking other people down In
character ami business. No man
ever got rich by trying to make
people believe he was the only one in
town, or the only man in town
who knew anything. You can't
climb the ladder of success hv tread-
: ing on others corns; keep off the
! corns and don't knock. You are not
the only; there are others, and they
have brains and kunw something as
well as you. There's no end of tun
in minding your own business. It
makes other people like vou, so if
vou can't boost, dnn't knock, No
body gets stuck on a knocker. Don't
he tine. Be good. Not too good,
for the good die young nnd I bate a
dead one.
