Ottawa, Dec. 18.—Sir Wilfrid l.aur-
I ier, who was received by his follow
I ers with much enthusiasm when he
moved his amcndmenl tn tho naval
polity iu parliament yesterday afternoon, in opening referred lo the tact
that some two months ago a document came to the premier ami himself, signed hy some of the most important citi/ens of Cauatla, belonging
to both parties, strongly urging thai
the subject of imperial defense should
tie removed from the domain of contentious polities.
Me saitl that the motive which animated these important and respected
citi/ens wus worthy of all praise and
met with his approbation, hut he
nright be permitted to observe thai if
the question of imperial defense has
been introduced into the domain of
contentious polities, the blame is not
to be imputed to anyone sitting on
the, opposition side of the house.
When, four years ago, Mr. Foster
introduced in a concrete form this
subject the Liberals were then in
control of the house and tliey did not
receive liis motion in any corresponding spirit. Sir Wilfrid then, quoted
the resolution unanimously adopted
by tiie house in March. IflOO, and said
lhe Liberals had received the proposition sympathetically. They had
suggested that It would be advisable
to enlarge it and to hrlng il in the
broader basis ol imperial defense in
view especially of ihe new condition
which was then and had been for
some time arising in IrSuropr. lie was
hound to say thai the Conservatives
had accepted some amendments
which were made hv the governmenl
( the dav The original motion
was then passed by the unanimous
voice of parllamenl •
Sir Wilfrid at tbis point again
quoted the resolution adopted in
1909 and went on to say that Hunk was scarcely drk upon tt before
i was assailed frnm the ranks of the
Conserv.nive partv, assailed from
motives divergent and contradictory,
ne section affirming that the duty
f Canada Inward the empire wouhl
noi dp properly discharged by the
■(instruction of the Canadian navy,
but ih.ii the nnly manner tn which
ibis duty could he discharged was hy
utrihutioii from the Canadian In
the Imperial treasury The other
section protested and have been protesting againsl the very idea cither
of the contribution or construction ol
n navv Tims was Introduced with
i vengeance mt,, contentious politics
tbe question of imperial defence, and
it also brought nut passions which it
had heen Imped were burled, but
Which were easily broughl to light
It could nol be denied, said Sir
Wilfrid, thai the result in the lasi
contest was affected by these fenl-
[nga Undei such circumstances
ihere might perhaps be some tempta.
Hon tn retaliate ami create political
capital tint   nf  the difficulties nf  those
wi it upy    the   treasury benches—
difficulties which had resulted in the
resignation of one of the most Important ol tbeir ministers—but the
subject was too ureal ami too sacred "By such methods wo will not
he Impelled to act I have stated it
before and I now repeat, and I think
l have been Hue to mv pledge, that
never would I utti-r a word which
would be Calculated to fall the (lame
which   unfortunately  this subject has
broughl Into existence in tbe con*
■(deration ol  the measure which has
been brought down we will be guided
hy its merits and hy its merits
Sir Wilfrid remarked thai Mie premier bad stated, when making his
proposals to the bouse, that be was
animated by no other purpose than
to promote! tbe welfare of Canada*
and of the empire. He was glad to
meet him upon this ground. If they
differed as to the policy presented, it
is because thev are frankly convinced
that the policy which each advocates
is more conducive to thp end which
each has in mind.
The Country waited with great Impatience for tbe premier's announcement, said Sit Wilfrid, ami now, after consultation with the admiralty,
the announcement had been made. Mr.
Asquith, Mr. Churchill, and Sir Rdward Orey bad again and again asserted thai Kngland had nn enemy,
ami tbal sbe was randy fnr all rum-
ers, still ihere was apprehension
somehow, somewhere; some mysterious enemy was tfoieateniti** Kngland
(Indeed, some went sn far as to say
Ihat Kngland was nn hei* knees hogging for support, an assertion wbieh
surely was more calculated to
wound the pride of tlmse tn whom it
was addressed than to create respect
ror those wbn uttered il. All these
apprehensions, however, have been
removed by the document which was
placed on the table of the house.
Sir Wilfrid continued: "England, is
always England.    She bows tho knee

This* is the language and it is nn
other than we could expect frnm
Knglish statesmen and lhe English
people. In other respects there is
cause fnr rejoicing. This document
shows that there is no emergency,
that Kngland is in tm danger—she is
iu no danger whether Imminent or
prospective, llm ibe document dis

men in Quebec who will nol recognize this truth we would appeal lo
them from aunt ber view point—-from
ibe baser motive of sellisbness. Canada has been immune from invasion
frnm the sea ever since Canadians
became subjects of England In
"Bul who can s.ii today," he continued, "that we are no longer Immune from invasion In the sea? At
tbe end of the seventeenth century
there were only three maritime powers in Europe—England, France and
Spain. In 1805 at Trafalgar the
naval forces of France and Spain
were crushed. Spain never recover
ed from the blow but Franco, with
ber, marvellous recuperative powers,
soon built a navy second only* tn
that of England. The mny ol
France ranks today second or third
among those of ibe different countries nf Europe, but happily we have
nothing to fear from Franco, The
entente cnrdiale bas broughl Franco
ind England,together and war between Lltoso countries would bo regarded by nther nations as equivalent
ivil war in any nne of them. I
have beard tbal the late queen said
on one occasion she would rather die
than see war between England and
France. The good queen did not
live to see accomplished that dream
of her life—sbe did imt see th* enleii
ie cordinlc—bul il was left in her
sun to accomplish il ami we today
receive ibe heneiil of ,il "
Sir Wilfrid said Dial there is       a
maritime    power  in   whieli   Canada
was opposed, altlium-.il lie was nnt ap
prehensivc of attack; bul all musi
agree that when increased armaments
are going on we cannol afford to be
idle and rest upon mu own security
It had heen said in Quebec that v,c
could rely on tbe Monroe doctrine
To anyone wbn believed Hus. lie
would refer the record ol Cuba after
the Spanish-American war. When
lhc Cubans were deslrious of remo>
ing the yoke of Spain they appealed
to the United Slates for help      and
they got  H.      Hut  when, wilh lite SS
sistancr of tbe United Stales they
had freed themselves from the yoke
>f Spain they found they had a dear
price to [.ay for lhe help ihey bad received. That price wm the abau
dniimeut of a portion of tholr indep
endencc. After the war was over
lhe people of Cuba wauled a con
stituHnii of tbeir own. ilut that
constitution had to go to Washington'for revision and conditions wen
Imposed distasteful tn the Cuban
Sir Wilfrid continued
that this view musl In
have to take our share
nnt nnly of our native
the   empire as a   who
our duties, was not by contribution,
but by the creation of a Canadian
Here Sir Wilfrid read portions ol
Mi. Uorden's speech of 1U0I), in whicb
tbe then opposition leader spoke of
preparing the soil of Canada for a
Canadian navy.

This harmful doctrine bas been
preached fnr months, and the preaching had left behind it au Impression
much mnn* east to create than ll is
now to destroy.
Continuing, Sir Wilfrid said: "We
had wrongfully heard throughout the
province of Quebec thai we owe
nothing to England because she had
sacrificed our interests concerning tbo
adjustment   uf tbe boundary between
the United Stales and Canada      For
his uwn pari to sometimes stated
that in such questions Hritish dip
lomacy lias not nften shown itself
to advantage, but we are imt to
draw the cono)us!on from tins thai
England was IndllTorenl in our interests. Nothing Of the kind Neither are we to draw the conclusion
that Enclaml desired to make no
saerIflees in,our interests The only
conclusion we can reasonably draw is
tliat in these matters liritisli dip
lomatlsts weie nut as well Informed
as those of thc Cnited States. This
shows conclusively that local matters
nre better dealt with hy those responsible fm* local administration,
i The fact is umienftible thai practical-.
ly ever since we have had lu our
hands the conduct nf mir diplomatic
relations Canada bas suffered no sacrifice.
Sir Wilfrid Instanced the rase of
the Atlantic fisheries dispute in
proof of his contention "nig nations Ifkp bin men," he said later
on, "ore not jealous nr envious of Hie
success of others and there dues nnt
exist Ihe necessih fm ia) Ing wbat

tbe foreign office. Of late years it

the fact tbat Russia has not been in
a position to be aggressive. Hut

"Mv right honorable friend in con
eluding, closed Ihe argumentative of
bis speech with Ihe statement that
in claiming for the overseas dominions the power to have a voice in all
[liestlons of peace or war lie was
recalling the attention of the statesmen <d Great llritain to tbe real
problem nf imperial existence,' Mark
Hie wnrds—'the real problem of imperial eMstcnec' I think It would
he dillicult for my right honorable
friend to convince us that tlie existence nf the* empire rests upon sn
slight a foundation. We have been
uciislniiied to believe and we will
mitintie iu believe, that the llritish
•mpire rests tin a firmer basis.
"1 am not indiii- rent to anything
thai concerns the unity ot the HtH-
sb empire. This agglomeration of
nniiiients under the Hritish crown
has something in il which strikes the
maginatfon;, has something in it
which bus always had, at all events
foi me, a great attraction, Iltit I
have always believed, and will continue lo believe, thai the firm basis
I the Hritish empire, next In tbe
Hritish crown, is the local autonomy
f the different dependencies. Tlmt is
lo Bay, their working out of their
wn ih-slinies to the mitr.il end of}

bond, it is tlie cement whicli hinds
together the scattered continents

s purely a sentimental bond, but
thai bond, though purely sentimental, has proved itself stronger than

elf to be equal to all occasions. I

Sir Wilfrid then moved bis amend

It is somewhat amusing to read lho
expressions ol approval of certain
leaders in the Tory tanks, ot Premier Borden's proposed naval policy,
iu the light of the utterances of Uie
same men some months earlier. ,
Our own chiei statesman, Sir
Richard McBride, up to tho lime of
Mr. Borden's announcement inn) vlg
nrnusly ami iu unqualified language
demanded a Pacific coast unit. The
moment Horden spoke and pul the
possih-ilttj nt a Pacilie coast unit mil,
of the question, fnr many years to
come, Sii Uicliurd held up both
hands mr his lender's policy, entirely
forgetful of all his previous eloquent
declarations, and ol bis trip to Ottawa to Interview ibe mlnlsirj
this very subject.
Hut ridiculous as is Sir Itichard
Mcllride's present altitude, it pales
into Insignificance, when compared
with the complete right about laco
of that veteran Tory leader Sir
('buries Tupper. It will have been
recalled, that Sir Charles, like his
understudy, Sir Richard, lias declared unreservedly in favor of premier
Borden's naval policy.
Let us read from bis own pen, just
what be thought on this naval question so recently as November 20,
In 18!H, Lord Salisbury requested
a deputation from Tbe Imperial Federation League to prepare and submit
some scheme, Tbey appointed a committee; the committee failed, and tbe
league dissolved (181)3), Sir Charles Tapper was a member ol the committee. In its consultations, he bud
to light those wbo proposed colonial
contributions; and, afterwards, he
wrote as follows:
"Knowing as 1 do that the most
active members td the committee
were mainly intent on levying a
large eontrihution on the revenues ol
tbe colonies for the support of the
army and navy of Greal Britain, 1
am delighted to have been utile, almost single-handed, to obtain such a
tepmt from such a committee."
In 1900, shortly after tbe naval and,
lilitary conference ol that year
(July and August) nt whicb the \us-
Iralian plan of contribution to the
Hritish navy was nbnndoned, and the
scheme of local i,.ivies (fnr which
Canada bad always contended) had
been adopted both by Australia and
thc admiralty, Sir Charles Tupper
wrote to    Mr. Borden the following

Christmas is   far nther and     more
than a vision, a poetic rendering   of
the facts of life (says Hamilton

deep not only in the history of men,
in the
I inn     iii uit'ir   faith, their   worship,
and their   way of life        They have
j never risen tn its level; they      have

concerted    action; but, even in their
Infirmity nf Intention and their feebleness nf practice,    Christmas      has
given their   liie on   earth   a diviner
meaning am) a kindlier habit.  It has
enormousl)     increased     thc value of
thut life, ii   is increasingly enriching

Victoria, II. ('., Itcc. IH.—It is understood that Mr. .lohn -Inrdinc,
Vancouver Island's representative
upon the recently wetted royal
commission on labor, is strenuously
urging that body lo lose no time in
visiting Cumberland, the center of
present discontent seriously affecting
the cnal production industry, with a
view to the presentation ol an interim report thereupon in advance of
Die mooting of the legislature in
•lauuary,     so that recommendations
with the object uf satisfactorily end
mi; the present situation may he
given immediate effect. The commission is to hold its organization
meet int; here oil the 2Kth Inst*, when
its plan of procedure will he considered and decided upon.
Firm friends of the administration
in the, directly interested districl arc
much exercised over what they regard as a grave tactical blunder on
the part of the government in dealing with, the Cumberland strike situation by granting an inquiry into
the grievances of the men when it
was first applied for, and thereby
averting not only much suffering on
the part of the workers and their
families, but also provincinlly-widc
inconvenience in a mid-winter shortage of coal, and very serious disarrangement of the export trade. Instead, the policy has been -adopted of
spending from $15,01,0 to 150,000
of public money in a quite unnecessary maintenance of a large police
force, the presence of which has been
fully taken advantage of by the operators to introduce Oriental strikebreakers to the number of about 700.

DISTRICT      exhibits
(lly Joseph Ityan).
Tht* Coliseum   on    South Wnbnsh
avenue, Chicago, is far from being
an ideal building for an agricultural
exhibition, the most .serious defect
being the total exclusion of daylight
ami the consequent necessity of using
electric light even in the day time.
The construction of tlie place does
not permit of big, striking effects as
do the lofty aisles and transepts  of
the main building at Lethbridge. The
Coliseum is essentially an ugly building and was erected away hack in
189ft when it was never expeeted
that such pressure would be thrown
oa its space as is now common. In
form It is a parallelogram surround-
with galleries and covered with a
rounded roof. However, lavish decoration, glowing exhibits, all kinds
of lighting devices made the place a
veritable fairy land. When all was
ready for the opening tbe old structure was gay enough to satisfy anybody- Splendid music helped to
make things brighter. Taken -ill iu
all, it was a really splendid show
and worthy of the great city in
which it was staged.
They called the exhibition .. Land
Show, but it was, of course, an ex-
hibitioa of tbc products of the land
ot nearly even* state In the union iu
addition to British Co
lumbia, Alberta, Saskatche
wan and Manitoba. The rait-
way companies, notably the (ireat
Northern, the Soo Line and ito
Chicago North Western, spared no expense to advertise their railway systems the lands they have for sale
and the scenery along their lines
The CNR. had the very pick of the
fruit of the State of Washington in
its stall Hanked ou all sides with
transparencies, showing the lakes and
glaciers of Qlactet Park, Montana.
The exhibits of Alberta. Saskal
chewan and Manitoba were naturall)
very strong and effective in wheal
and cereals of all kinds. Those responsible for staging tlmse exhibits
are singularly expert at grouping and
flivplaving their specialties Thc

gold, silver and bronze medals won
by the province all mer the world
for fruit, were mother striking feature. Tlw place of honor was given
to the Stillwell cup won by B C at
New York last vear for potatoes in
competition with every state in
America. On the side tables were
shown fruits and llowers preserved
in some liquid which shows even
the very bloom on tbe plum or the
grape, 'in an adjoining booth, tie-
corn ted like (lie main exhibit, were
shown the minerals, grains, vegetables, tobacco, cigars, honey, preserves and the exhibit of lhe C. S
and H- Co. The design was thought*
out and worked out bv Mr W. Iv
No matter how clever men mar  heat decorating It still takes tlie itides
rrlbable feminine   touch   of womanlv
refinement to impart the sense      ot
. accomplished elegance lo a home,
or a man, or a nation or a booth at
|uu exhibition. It was Mrs. W. E,
Scott, wife of the deputy minister
of agriculture, wlm put on the Iinal
touches to the B.C, exhibit and
stamped it with character, energy
and artistic feeling of our people. It
can he said al once tliat B.C. losl
nothing in the way of effective dis
play of au exhibit of fruit, grain,
niiiiciuls ami tobacco which were ud
llllttodly the best in the building
Imitation is the ailiuerust form nf
(lattery, The It. C. apples made
such an impression that every booth
in the place, no matter what else
it had to attract attention, got hold
nl a hOX or two of apples. Kvcn
Louisiana, where they can no more
grow apples than we can grow oranges, followed suit. It is a curious
thing that apparently the one lest
whieh the enormous Chicago public-
appears to apply to any state is its
ability to grow the big, red, juicy
apple. We had no trouble in showing them tliat B.C. could fill the bill
in that regard. The next question
would he as to the climate. Wasn't
it fearfully cold up there? The apples, pears, plums und cherries answered that question clearly enough
and thc sight of thc grapes and
tobacco clinched their newly formed
opinion of the country. All the
same, it was surprising what a
knowledge they had of the coast and
the country around Fort Oeorge and
the Nechaco Valley. The Kootenay
country they knew of in a general
way, but of Nelson, Creston or
Cranbrook they had never heard. Literally thousands of enquiries about
Prince Rupert, Fort Oeorge, the
Fraser Valley, the Coast, Victoria,
Vancouver, and so on, and not a
word about the Okanaban, Nelson,
Creston or the Windermere as places
suitable for location. That Is what
advertising can do. That is the result, in great part, of the work of
the Orand Trunk Pacific company and
of thc Natural Resources Development company, which is operating so
extensively in the Fort George country. Why don't we take a leaf out
of their book? Why don't we act
on the courage of our convictions and
let the world know what we think of
ourselves? If we want a share of
the coining rush into this province
we must advertise our country. To
put it in plain terms we are failing
in our puhlic duty in that regard and
if others come in to beat the bush
and make the bird of profit fly to
the stranger we have only ourselves
to thank for the result of our apathy.
The exhibition opened each morning—Sundays as well as week-days—"
nt 11 am. and closed at 11 p.m.
Buring all those dozen hours the
place was simple packed and a number of firemen had to keep the crowds
moving ni order to prevent an actual
blockading ol the aisles. They are a
wonderfully smart, clear wilted
people those Chlcagoans. A man ac
impanled by two nr three others
rould bear down on the booth.
Bright eved and quick as a gun trig
ger he WOUld ask two or three questions going to the very root ot the
mattei. and then: "Vou bet, boys.
that's the land up there Cm going
np and the wife is coming, too" One
man, evidently a mechanic, told the
twiter be was coming to III', lust
because be knew tliat there the law
was respected "1 know that from
m\ brother who is up there," said
he "1 wan'' to net where the dollar i^n't everything, I have worked
hard every daj nl my life and what
have I tor it now! Uardlv my
health even I'll gn where the skies
are clearer and I'll hung the sons

It is uu conviction that the land

Ihe means of bringing thousands upon thousands into this province, immigrants ol the very hest class This
ionsummat-lon was verv materially
helped by the System of public lectures adopted fnr advertising the resources nl the province. These lee-
lures weie shared between Mr. W. E.
S«nlt, the deputy minister of agriculture, and the writer. These were
Illustrated either wit*-1 colored stere-
optlcon views or else with motion
pictures, were delivered four times a
dny to tree audiences which simply
packed the balls set apart for this
purpose. A terrible megaphonist.
with a voice like the blast of Gabriel's trumpet}, would announce from
the gallery, 'Ladies and Gentlemen,
a grand illustrated lecture on British
Columbia will now be delivered in
Lecture Hall A. British Columbia,
Bight away. Indies and gentlemen,
tor tbe highly interesting lecture."
This lecturing feature is entirely admirable and the motion pictures
showing scenes In the logging camps,
lhe fisheries nml mines are a wonderful educational medium. Never a
lecture would pass without a crowd
of people following the lecturer ovei
Ito tbe booth for further Information
almiii the climate, the laws, or the
.opportunities of the province. The
writer used to sum It. all up fn about
.this formula. "Spiralling generally,
! a man who taken earn to see for himself    what be* is buying, can hardly
make a mistake by Investing iu B.C.
land or lots. The opportunities of
the province aro as good and as
great as was offered by the place
where Chicago now sits to those who
were here eighty oi .seventy years
Owing to the enormous crowds and
the consequent vitiation of the air
iu the building, the work in the booth
and the icctuie room was exhausVing
in lhe lasl degree. Hut it wus all
Intensely Interesting and once the
work got under way it was to he enjoyed keenly—UOtll another long day
of il had to he faced.
We had with us Mr. M. S. .Middle-
tun, of Nelson, the provincial horticulturist, who is so well and favorably known by all nur fruit growers
in the Cranhrook locality; .Mr. Shot-
bolt, of Victoria, aud lhe Messrs
lohnson, of Vernon, all mighty workers and keen demonstrators. The
most obliging fellows in the world,
withall. It was a pleasure lo work
with them and doubly a pleasure lo
be associated in the work with Mr.
W. E. Scott, who in every possible
regard was the perfection both ol
courtesy and consideration.
Thc show closed at 11 p.m. Sunday, 8th instant. When the writer
left everything was in place and in
perfect order. The next morning
when he visited the place it was
changed beyond all belief. The interior of the vast building, where a
few hours belore all things were
seemly and in order, looked as if a
tornado had first wrecked the whole
show and that the devil aud ull his
imps of darkness had finished the destruction by having a special brand af
war-dance in the midst of the ruins.
It appeared that au order had gone
forth from the owners of the Coliseum that everything iu the place
had to be packed and cleared away
inside twenty-four hours in order to
have the decks cleared for a big
poultry show. Messrs. Middlcton,
Shotbolt and both Mr. Johnson, sr.,
and his son, had in consequence of
this order been working all night aud
were simply blear eyed with toil and
want of sleep. But thc work was
got through, just like everything else
is got through in Chicago. The
work simply has got to be done and
there's an end of it.
All the mineral exhibits will coino
back to Cranbrook where the writer
will try to perfect arrangements to,
have them placed as a permanent exhibit on the platform,nf the t'l'.K.
depot. There they will be properly
shown in a suitable ease, protected
from the weather, and kept free from
dust, etc, hy plate glass panels.
The Hon. Priee Ellison said that
for tbe one who saw what Cranbrook
had to show at Lethbridge a thousand would see it at Chicago. It
would he nearer the mark to say
live thousand Cranbrook has done
well in this thing. l-t-t us see that
she will be ready to grasp the next
opportunity which offers for making
her mark in foreign dimes. Tt is up
to the Board of Trade and lhe Agricultural Association to grasp the
fact that Cranhrook moves towards
the position which rightly ts hers,
and to Bee to it. therefore, that
there be no retrogression or reaction-
i. The responsibility is theirs
and the public mav lie trusted to insist that responsibility cheerfully undertaken and discharged by other cities shall not be skirked and scamped
bv those who have taken similar duties upon them in Cranbrook
The contract for the Indian Industrial school at the St. Kugene Mis
sion, is about completed and the
handsome structure will very shortly
be occupied by the Indian boys and
girls, at present quite inadequately
accommodated in the old buildings.
The views nf tbe building, published
herewith, unfortunately' do not convey as clear an idea of the imposing
architectural features of this new-
building, as at the time they were
taken, building operations were not
quite completed. The dominion's
care of its Indian wards has always
been a subject ol earnest concern upon the part ot Ihose in authority,
and in providing these handsome and
commodious quarters for the Indian
children of South East Kootenay,
the department is but extending its
useful work along tho healthiest
Let it be borne in mind tbat the'
department of Indian affairs In tlie
government of Canada is a trustee in
charge of the affairs of the Indian
population ol this country ami is also their guardian or general agent
as well us acting ns a responsible,
reliable   and   respected   "mediator"
between Ihem ami all parties; still
further it is responsible for Llielr
education, mentally, morally ami
physically. No small undertaking is
this hi view oi ihe numerous and
varied interests ever contending to
destroy lt noble, much-abused nnd
mis-judged race nf humanity.
In this work the departmeni has
hitherto received splendid, most gen
eroUS and thoroughly competent assistance from tlte various religious
bodies through their missionaries.
These bodies have borne a large poi
lion of the cost ni maintaining ihe
numerous missions ami schools either
directly or Indirectly ami tlie sure
co-operation is likely to continue indefinitely.      Bul   the   ever-changing
omiiimns of modern civilization
keeps raising tbe standards for tlio
white population and naturally the
department nr Indian affairs is obliged to improve its methods aud aim
at higher achievements in its dealings with and in behalf ni the Indians, otherwise it, would he untrue
to its trust, the record ol which is
the secret ol its excellent control of that race of people. To lose
the respect nf the Indians would bc
disastrous as well as a hint upon nur
civilization. Such was not to he allowed.
Consequently tho departmeni has
been persistent in requiring of the
religious bodies in charge nl the mis
slons and schools higher and bvpi
better training along sanitary, mor
al and eilufaliini.il Hues, which re
qulrements hate heen mel as far    as
possible with Hie menus placed at
their disposal in the department,
hut ihere calm' a slam* when it he
came evident thai ll would ho Impossible to continue without some
improvement in ihe buildings and appliances supplied bj the department
generally or else the customary
methods of educating the Indians
would have to be nltered. Having secured much more satisf actor j results
in its methods of handling the Indian affairs with its proven policy
than had the countn to the south ol,
us, it was therefore accepted as natural that the present policy should
bo maintained antl the necessary
steps taken to make this possible,
especially iu view nl the fact that
the Canadian governmenl has spent
much 'ess per capita on iis Indian
population than the i nited States
and accomplished much lietiet results, It also had ample funds
available to carry out its contemplated improvements.
In deciding upon its future policy il
was wisely guided by llie advice of
the missionaries collaborating In a
convention h?ld at Ottawa in l-HO*
at which it was decided lhal the department should renew .,r replace
many of its old Mission buildings
mid iu doing .so that the new quarters in each case should be ol such u
size, construction and type as to be
suitable for tbe purpose, permanent
and capable ol enlargement iioai time
to time as eomliiious mlghl require.
In consideration of tbe adopt inn of
such a policy the missionaries were
to continue to use their hest endeavors to meet the requirements of
the department in thc training nf tlie
Indian children. The hoys are to be
given manual training aud the girls
domestic science in addition to the
branches already taught along other
lines. This mean! a new departure
in the type nf buildings for g 1 business as well and it was decided to
have .all future buildings of the highest type-
Then arose lhe quest inn ns to
which of the many Industrials
Schools would have the first new
building fn deciding ihis matter
the department did not overlook
merit as well as necessity. The result was that the Kootenays, owing
(o ibe splendid showing and generally good reputation thev had made iu
the comparatively brief period ol
their contact with the whites and
also on account ol the delnptdated
condition of their school buildings,
were given the preference and th,*
first of these modern school buildings
is now located and readv for use
upon their reserve al St Eugene
Mission, the history ol which is familiar to all Cranbrook readers
Needless to Bay this was a source ol
much pleasure lo the local Indian
agent, Mr. R. L. T. Galbralth, of
Fort Steele, who had fnr years heen
advocating a modern school building
for the Kootenays, Reverend Sister
Superior Justinian and her assistant
Sisters of  Charity, who hate charge!
of     this school,     and also the llev.
Father Beck, who was then principal
of the school.
The contract was let (o    Mr. .lohn

of the subject. The daily record ol
Ihe tmrk being done by tlie Reverend
Sisters of Charity is but thai ol a
continual labor of love, only sHghtly
appreciated   by the   casual observer
To tho west of the new building
lies the homestead of the Sister-: of
Charity, which is under cultivation
solely for the support ol lho ichnol
and for the training ol the Indian
children. Here all branches of agriculture and horticulture are being
demonstrated in a manner which
should he more general
ly studied by some    ol
our white settlers, who are Inclined
to expect too much from too small
an amount of work upon their land.
All of the produce from this 320 acre
farm is raised by tlie efforts ol thc
children, murk you, nf this school under the guidance ol a capable instructor whose duties are too numerous and varied to mention, but inspired largely by the love for the
prime object of helping the Indians
The products of this farm have on
several occasions won the best prizes
at the local fall fairs and 'To Improve" seems to be the guiding motto ol the institution in this connection.

effect. Sometimes lie is asked
whether it is worth while to take
SUCh pains ahnut what, he intends to
.say, especially iu lhe heat and dust
and forKPtfiilncss of an election campaign. He has never douhted the
wisdom of his care. His attitude
to those who come to hear liim is
"The hest is hour too good."
And here is a loiter that Mr. Hurrell hasn't seen. It is from a former citizen of Grand Forks, nn the
border of British Columbia and the
Slate of Washington, and il tells of
Mr. Burrell's first puhlic appearance
in tbnt town. The English farmer
and fruit grower was asked to
speak to a toast at a public dinner.
Nobody knew about his faculty for
suck work, but before ho sat down,
my correspondent says, everybody
knew tbat a man of unusual parts
was in their midst.
More and more demands wire made
upon him to enlighten and edify thei
community. In due time he became
candidate for parliament. Though he
didn't win tbe first time he was asked to run again. He was successful.
He turned a majority of 161 against
him into a majority of 803. Why?
First of all, be has character. Sn
have many defeated candidates, who
are minus the nift of articulation.
They stand well, hui not knowing
how to talk well they stand only
once. Tbey nre like silent actors
behind the footlights. IBs party
came hack to Mr. Hurrell because he
talked square and well, besides stand
Eng square and well.
Is it worth taking the trouble to
spe.ik as if your subject and audience
amount to something? I should say
so \n Englishman is minister ol
agriculture at Ottawa, because be
can speak well. How else was his
leader to know his quality? In what
other way could he show the superiority of bis mind' When the heathen
rage and imagine a vain thing because they don't know bow to talk
themselves, and don't care in recognize somebody else thai does know
bow, let thnn remember Mr. Burrell
ami take iuvd to tbeir criticisms.

ease He scarcely moves on lus feet
except to glance now and then at ihc
hall --heci nf notepapcr in bis hand.
His voice is smooth, natural, pleas
ant. His accent is neither English
not Canadian. It is compounded of
the hei ter elements of both.
He bas what il is decent in Whitehall to call a perfect bouse of commons stylo, "t treasury benches be
is iii thc manner born. His langu*
age is lirst class, lie is literary in
his own speech as well as appreciative of the literary qualities of
others He is not like Lord Mllner,
for Instance, who has as much natural grace ol expression as an affidavit. Mr. Hurrell has the glfl uf
language. The clothes of his mind
arc harmonious with the mind T am
not saying that be is particularly
massive nr dazzling. lie «e\er says
tlmt ahnut himself, not even to bim
self in the silent watches. He bas lhc
blessed grace i.f modesty—not so
much, though, that he is tempted ti
brag aimut it, inborn, Ineradicable
though it is.
Mr. Hurrell is the same man who
struggled as a farim r in the Niagara
Peninsula, who sat nu Ibe hack hen
cbes—quiet, unassuming, sincere,
happy as a sandboy in the society of
his wife, and tickleder than anything
wben he can get a quarter ul an hour
to spiel away on the piano.

And ton- is    -i choice aytrnot Irum

'vantage whatsoever lo tho nnv)   The
■ Liberal governmenl    lure would only
I spend un naval defence by so     much

The energy which led up to tliu
erection of the Cranbrool* huilding at
Lethbridge and the exhibition there
of our fruit, lumber products and
minerals, seems destined to achieve
a success as remarkable as it was
unexpected by those who worked il
up and broughl it tn a head. To the
very great credit of the prime movers be it said that it was never sn
much a question ol what the whole
undei taking would cnst as making

"THE piEE"
Unfortunately    neither  time
space   will permit nf anything
adequate    attention being paid
reall) excellent performances In
issue.     It must suffice tu say
the Cranbrook Operatic Society
celled  all previous efforts and
two performances ol rare merit
The staging, costuming, elc ,
excellent, the chorus wns well
ed, the principals all performed
parts in the most admirable ma
as was amply testified to hy
wei e
enthusiastic applause of two large
audiences that witnessed the production.
Last week we published the caste
in full, and lack of space, prevents
its repetition. There must he, how
ever, some speeial mention nt several
of tbe performers, whose singing and
acting were specially goml. Among
those most worthy of notice, were
Miss Service, "Nanoya," whose
graceful acting and sweet singing
greatly pleased her auditors. .Mrs.
E, 1. Paterson, with her customary
artistic talent, tilled her rule in the
most charming    mai i      Miss     T.
Brown's "Natoomn n Tea Oirl,
was one of the prettiest little parts
in the play and was rendered very
effectively. Among the male performers special mention is due to
Mt. A. I,. McDermot, whose make
up, ami appeal .' ce, were simply
magnificent. Messrs. Stevenson and
Loubach were also seen ami heard
io great advantage Mr. Stevenson
was, probably, heller in "The ('im:
alee" than iu an other operetta in
which he has appeared here in the
pasl. Archie Ila worlh was the
same old Archil full of fun and responsible for .i j,real deal of the
laughter. Mi Alan Oraham, un
fortunately, bad no pari which would
permit uf an*, real display of his
talents, however, be made ihe mosl
nf a very modesl part.
Mr. i". O. Staples has gained quite
a reputation a*, a fancv step dancer
On the whnle these performances
were verv enjoyable and reflected
great credit upon the talent of a
large number of the youth and beat!
ty uf Cranbrook.
A word ni well deserved praise
must be accorded Mr. R. T Brymner, the musical director, to whose
untiring efforts much of the success
uf this production was due.
As the date nf the forthcoming
municipal .lections draws nearer in
terest is being aroused as to pros
pectlve candidates.

sand over agricultural areas.
in every district there are elected
local protection councils, and these
have a large share 111 the advancing
•1 the forest policy. Under these
ominltlces there are being managed,
usi as farms would be managed, 18
million acres of forest.
lit the middle of the last century
the income from the domain forest
was $500,000; last year, according to
p roll minor) Information given out by
the forestry department, the govern*
men! forest revenues amounted to
$12,535,810, an increase over the re
venues of HMO nf $3,012,01:1. The
amount of forest land held by the
governmenl In the empire was ap
pmiinulely 171,035,000 acres. The
greater part of these revenues came
from forest land in Kuropean Hus-
sia, totaling about $39,861,000, or
over 03 per cent of the entire revenue. The governmenl forests ol
ihe Caucasus occupy an area ol
about 8,000,000 acres and brought a
revenue of $603,065 in 1911, Siberia
and Turkestan, in which the area of
government forest land totals about
238,650,000 acres, (about the same as
in Kuropean Russia), brought in all
a revenue of $2,051,335. After deducting the expenses from the gross
receipts, which, according to the estimate of 1911 amounted tit $13,865,-
888, there remained the sum of $28,-
050,923 clear profit, or approximately u" per rent of the gross revenue.
llritish Columbia's forests yield only a small fraction of this at present, but wilh the development of the
resource the amount uili be as great
as li.J, million dollars pet annum, according to government officials.

Mr. Hurrell became connected with
Farmers' Institute work, and developed into a writer nml lecturer on
horticulture. Not having his eyes
glued to the ground, he was able
lo at* that western development and
the fruit growing possibilities of
Southern British Columbia valleys,
where land could be bought cheaply,
meant a great future for fruit growing in the Pacilie province. So, after
fourteen years hard by St. Catharines, he went to (irand Forks, where,
when be became minister of agriculture, he owned two hundred acres of
lund, including some of the finest orchards in the world. It is worth
several times as much as he paid for
il, and attending concerts now Is a
matter entirely of taste and convenience.
Hut here, as I said in the beginning, the extra-farmer, that was Hurrell asserted himself. He became
editor as well as farmer. For three
years he had charge of thc "Grand
Forks (Jazette," which i incumbency
was related to a municipal career
whose memory Grand Forks will not
soon let die. Thc early days of
several Hritish Columbia towns in
the bonier country were exceedingly
western—republican in moral quality.
(iun play was the most notable
amusement of gentlemen who found
it consonant with their expectation*!
iif liberty to move northward across
the international line. .Joint and
dive abounded even on main streets,
and vou had abundant evam'ples in
Grand Forks, as you had in other
places, of how evil communications >
corrupt good manners.
Grand Forks (or a while was wide
open, as they say when tliey mean
that the devil enioys the freedom of
the town. There were, in facl, two
forks—tbe obvious destiny td which
was to unite under one municipal
government When that time came,
Mr Hurrell. the quiet, polite Kng
lishman, was persuaded to run for
tin* mayoralty.
ll was a contest between honor and
dishonor, between spirited adhesion
to Hritish ideals and spirituous hos-
tilitv to the upward trend of
things. Tbere were threats, there
were to be boyeoltings of those who
lared to support the rlean-minded
candidate Even   after the mayor
was triumphantly elected, the touch
element kept, for a time, on the
edge of vengeance.
The tmivor survived, and so did
Grand Forks Though the exigencies1
of mining have taken some of the
ginger out of the town, it is still a
momument to those who believe that
cleanliness in municipalities is as
pleasing to 1'rovidence as godliness

A skilled, well-to-do fruit farmer
who has been an editor and a mayor
is hound to become a marked man
Mr Hurrell was induced to sit on
the board of horticulture for Hritish
Columbia In the winter or 1907-08,
he was in Kngland as fruit commissioner and lecturer for the province.
Before that he had become candidate
for Yale-Cariboo, That was in
IMI, a had year for the Dominion
Conservative partv.
Now, Yale-Carihon is as enormous
in extent ns it is singular in name.
For Yale, the town in the Fraser
canyon, is not in Vale-Catihoo, but
in New Westminster. Yale district
is in Yale-Cariboo. The constltuen-
canyon, Is not In Yale-Cariboo, but
where they began mining gold lifly
years ngo. Besides Grand Forks, it
includes North Bend and Kamloops
and Ashcroft, whicb is the jumping
ofl place for the Cariboo and Fort
George country. North Bend la Hie
hundred and thirty miles from Kamloops, with Ashcroft In between. ' I
should not like to say how far It is
to Cariboo from Ashcroft, except
that it used to lie Iwo hundred and
liftv miles bv conch. The constituency embraces, to use tbe precocious word they presented us with
nt school, seventy thousand square
miles.    Kngland and   Wales, 11    my
memory is   safe,    contain litly-eight
thousand square milea,
A candidate for parliament, there
fore, some td whose constituencies
are a couple of hundred miles from ••
railway, cannot make a very thorough personal canvass. Knowledge
about him has to percolate through
vast areas of country, llul when litis known for the sort of man .Mi
Hurrell is, he is exceedingly hard to
It wasn't hostility 1" reciprocity
alone which increased Mr. Hurrell'a
majority last year from 893 to
2.IMI).     Personality always tells.
After only three years' service lie
was oflered und accepted hy telegram, a pluce in the cabinet, and
though he travelled as fast as trains
could bring him, he did nof reach Ottawa until several days afler all his
colleagues were sworn in He was
not mentioned In the guessing contests thut the knowing newspapers
ran what time Mr Borden's house
was besieged by candidates for, and
advisers about, cabinet appointments
Mr. Horden kept his own counsel, and
chose for minister of agriculture a
man who was never known to solicit
anything for himself.
I have said vou may look for something about the record <if his depart-
inttit elsewhere in the paper. lie
has, for the session just opened, a
constructive agricultural programme
that will, I think, mark an epoch in
the fundamental development of
Canada, as it will signalize a departure in co-operation between the
Dominion and provinces which, if 1
am anything of a prophet, is a shadow of things to come.
His mark has heen made In unselfish service to the country. Whatever may happen to the government
as a whole, you may count on tbis
Englishman holding his head high
and his honor higher. He has the
big gift of getting out of life its
surest and serenest pleasures. A
look at hia photograph will tell yon
that much. A chat with his wife
would tell you more. Foi though
there Is not now any child to help
make life splendid, there is everything else that goes to make Ibe
blessed, immovable peace of home.

Finding thai large tracts of lands
throughout various portions of thf
province had been discovered and retained by private individuals, to the
detriment ol settlement hy preemption, and that tbe path of railways building or to he built are
likely to be secured and exploited for
speculative purposes, the land settlement committee of tbe Vancouver
city board of trade and have brought
in a repoit before the meeting of
thai organization.
In the report they made certain
recommendations, in view of the fact
that conditions demand immediate
legislation to prevent the acquiring,
holding nr speculation fu agricultural
lamls. The committee also demanded tbe continued active building of
trunk highways, and liberal governmenl assistance to settlers, such as
tlie clearing of land and the providing
of marketing facilities.
Among some of their recommendations were, that except under binding
settlement and improvement conditions, all agricultural lands be reserved for the active settler. That
systematic surveying be continued
with all speed possible Tbat in future pre-emptions, i[ necessary, vary
in size nnd shape, to more equally
distribute the advantages of access
to rivers or highways and to suit
surrounding conditions of land, and
that longer and narrower pre-emptions be surveyed, being more suitable to district settlement. That
pre-emptions be reduced iu si/e tn
10 acres or more, where soil and locality are found suitable for such
They also recommended the purchase of modern road-making machinery and the prompt reserving or
securing for district and municipal
purposes of known accessible deposits nf rond-makjng materials, such as
rock, gravel and sand. Further that
assistance in clearing, irrigating or
draining he given to established farmers, eilher by direct loan or by
government guaranteed district
bonds, so as to quickly extenil acreage for cultivation. That a policy
of practical assistance to settlers Ite
inaugurated, such as establishing district settlements in various parts of
the province, selected witb a view of
most easily building ami maintaining
regular communication with a market and providing the menus lo stub
settlements at minimum cost, of
part cleaning, draining, irrigating or
otherwise assisting the starting of
farming operations, as circumstances
may require, such outlays chargeable
against the land until paid, and |
I Tbnt a departmeni of land settle
ment be organized, having funds at
Its disposal to efficiently carry nut
thin policy. I
Tbe committee noted wllh regrel
tbe enormous tracts of (be most de
sir ably situated auric.il tural lauds,
as Indian reserves, are neither being
developed not made use of, greatly
to tbe detriment of agriculture in
this province, also ihat the appointment nf a royal commission nu agriculture is likely lo further delay an
urgently needed laud settlement policy, and trust that al least the most
urgent of these recoinnienilatintis
may be dealt with by lhe government this coming session.
ln presenting the report, the members of tbe committee which consisted of Messrs. H. A. Stone, \. C.
Flumerfell, \V. IL Leekie, K. Odium, G. Blair, F. Glover. J. It
Mathers, .lohn lingers, Win. Dal ton,
E. IL Heaps, W. McNeil, ||. G.

Weart called the attention of the
board to the fact ihal, iu view of the
condition which.existed as reported
by this stole ni affairs arising Ham
difficulties 01 geogrnphical situation
as well as naliirul causes, was verv
serious, when it was taken into eon
sideration tbal nboul I went) mil
lions of dollars were leaving the
province annually lor farm products.
This warranted an active and liberal
policy for tbe nssl8lai.ee of settlement, else the lienefil which should
result from tbe present railway policy would he materially lessened.
Mr. H. A. Stone, convener of the
land settlement committee, read a
paper covering every phase of the
question. He stated that his information had beer secured from
interviews with Mr II A. Ken wick,
deputy minister of lands; W. K.
Scott, deputy minister of agriculture; S. Mabcr, depart ment of interior; Ottawa and other promlnenl
government officials.
During tbe past ten years, he said,
manufacturing had Increased from
very little to 46 millions per annum,
and the provincial revenue lias made
great gains. The revenue from lands
had in the same period grown from
$131,000 to three millions, from timber and mines from $-165,000 to two
and three-quarter millions, and Irom
all sources from one and three-quarter millions to tea ami one-half millions. While ihis great progress
had been going forward, how deplnr-
ably slight bad been tbe Increase of
lands under cultivation.
It would seem reasonable thai n
government should he able lo clear or
otherwise prepare ground for settlement at a lower cost than any private company Laml so improved
would not increase in value except
by the actual cost of sucli improvements, and it was surely onh right
and in the interests   of the prorfnee.
