A meeting nf the executive of tlw
local Boy Scouts organization was
held on Wednesday alternoon, at
which steps were taken to serure tbe
necessary uniforms and equipment
fnr the youngsters.
Tbe total cost ol each outfit will
not exceed 36.50, and it Is planned
to secure sufficient outfits immediate-
li to supply those ol the boys who
pass the Tcndrr'oot examination..
The idea of the executive is that
the boys should each contribute hall
the cost ol tbc .utlil, Ihe executive
finding the balance, through public
contributions. In paying lor their
.ut.its the youngsters will be allowed plenty of time in wbieh to earn
tl>c small monehly sum necessary to
make up the total ol their share,
33.00.
The uniform will cnslst ot hat

Tbe boys are turning out regularly

veiy healthy interest is aroused in

this interest will greatly increase.

It is quite evident Ihat the i.ulll

directed against the fence mentioned
above, as contained in Ito July 27th

as follows:
"It Is high jtimc the Itoarls mu-
"rounding tlie new post office were
Mremoved. These arc only siippnted
"to be placed an uud .1 buildiug in

we give nelow:

'under permit No. 35, we have    de-
'cided to do so, provided the     city

If, as expected, the British Liberals idcntily themselves with tlie
policy ot taxation ol land rallies
their platform will represent a tremendous advance on anything that

Kor, II carried to its logical conclusion, taxation ol land values means

presented the sale Liberal seat
East Derbyshire     Irom January
December, llllll, but gave it up       to
undertake the rather   hopeless    task
ol defeating one of the Conservatives
al   Portsmouth,   making   this   land
qiH's.tiiin a  prominent Issue in      his
campaign.     Mr. Ilcmmrrile was     ile-
fcatcd, but now, after nearly      two
years, he  returns lo the house      ot
.'ominous as the winner of Northwest
Norfolk after a   light in which       he
made the question of the taxation ot
land values the chiel issue,
Next came the victory ol Sydney
Arnold in the by-clcction In tbc
llolmllr.ti division of Yorkshire. Mr.
Arnold con.luct.-d his campaign on
the same land policy as advocated by
Mr. ileiiinierdc, cutiphil with retrenchment in armaments. Although
opposed by a Unionist, whose long
suit was an attack of the insurance
bill, and hy n Labor candidate,
whose ho|iex lay chiefly in the miners' discontent o-'er the Minimum
Wage Acl, Mr. Arnold di-fralcd each
of his opponents by over a thousand
votes.
Third nnd last in llie scries came
llanley, where It. I.. Iltithwaitc, a
Itadical of imperial reputation nud
an uncompromising laml relormer,
was also elccled over a Unionist
and a Labor candidate.
In the Unionist press llu- MWjfjtb-

I Up to the present there has been no
parly as tn thc adoption ol a new
official announcement by the Liberal
uud advanced policy on the land
question. Nor is it likely that any
definite programme in this regard
will be formulated until tbe labors
ol tbc committee oo local and imperial taxation, appointed by . tbc
cabinet, are concluded.
It is interesting to recall tbat in
May- ol last ' year more than 170
Radical and Labor members ot the
house ol commons memuralized the
government In lavor ol lurtber land
relorm. Tbey waited upon Premier
Asiinith and Chancellor Lloyd Oeorge
representing to them that the separate valuation ol land, which was
lieing carried out all over the United
Kingdom, would provide a Inundation lor giving tbe people a mere
equitable distribution ol, the burdens
ol tbe state, and at tbe same time
open up Ihe land to those who could
make the heat use ot It.
Ruth ministers expressed their
sympathy witb the views ol the delegation. Lloyd Oeorge, especially,
admitted the urgency ol the problem,
but be pointed out that it hod obviously to be considered in connection
with thc readjustment ol imperial
ami local taxation which waa then
engaging attention. He suggested
that some members nl the deputation lay Iheir views before tbe commit'.*' on Imperial and local taxation, and this advice, It is understood, has recently been acted upon.
Mr. Asquith declared tke question to

its urban and ita rural aspect, and
for the moment he tlaiught tbe rural
aspect the more urgent ol tbe two.
Towards the end ol the lollowlng
November Lloyd Oeorge attended the
annual imeotlng ol the National Liberal federation at Bath. During the
course nl the greeting tie chancellor
made the lollowlng significant declaration:
"What is the most urgent nerd ol

Reports Irom Constantinople Indicate that the great earthquake which

number ol victims at 1000 killed
while tbc injured are said to number
Irom 5000 to 0000.
The details of tke earthquake,
which are coming in slowly owing to
the interruption ol Uie wires, Indicate
that the seismic disturbance was
widespread. Several hundred persons have been killed, thousands are
homeless and outbreaks ol fire have
occurred in many towns and villages.

Every Dollar

Is Above Par
Your dollars vary in value as
they vary in purchasing power.
The man or woman who studies
advertisements is able, frequently,
to make one dollar do the usual
work of two.
Frequently Its Buying
Power is Actually
Doubled
And the experienced reader of
advertisements will always make
a dollar command a premium —
make it buy MORE than a dollar's worth, as figured on " ruling
prices " of things.
How much "abovepar" are
the dollars in your pocket worth ?
It will depend on how closely you
study the buying opportunities
outlined in the store ads.
Nearly everybody understands
that a store's advertising, IF BIG
and PERSISTENT ENOUGH,
enables it to sell the same things
more cheaply, at a smaller per

store compelled to base necessary
profits on smaller volume of sales.

MADE HIS MARK IN HISTORY
SKETCH OP REMARKABLE CAREER OP LATE EMPEROR
OF JAPAN.
There is no great potentate about
whom so little has been known as
thc Emperor Mutsuhito ol Japan an.]
nt. ruler of today who has made so
■great a mark in history as lie who
has led his peoiilr from fcinlalism ami,
an effete Orientalism In the forefront
of western civilization.
In the reiirji of a sinirlc monarch
Japan has emcrgi-fl from an obscure
ami unknown Asiatic kingdom to a
great st'lf-ii<n-i-iiiiin; nation which
has incorpnrat.il into its customs of
government und education the finest
products ol western achievement.
Tho empire nl Japan shall lie
reign.*! over and governed liv a line
nl eii.iierois unbroken for ages i-ler-
nal.
This sentence, the first article In
the constitution nf Japan, contains
in its brevity and simplicity tlie
keynote of the government of Japan,
apart from which no consideration ot
Emperor Mutsuhito Is possible. It Is
thc simplest expression ol tlie. Japanese belief in the mythical divinity ol
the imperial lainily and the eternal
continuity ol the sovereign power.
The man in whom this power is
centred has held it Irom 1887,
throughout thc period ol the awakening nl new Japan. He was thc
122nd emperor ot his line and his ancestry is traced unbroken to the year
t60 n. C. At that remote date even
the emperor was regarded as of divine, immemorial origin.
The figure of the man who brought
his empire through one of the most
remarkable developments the world
has ever seen has heen almost obscured. The world knows little and
bas seen less of this diminutive ruler
whose people it has learned to respect. Florid ol countenance and
sombre of mien, with the great,
drooping moustache of a mandarin
concealing his mouth, Mutsuhito bore
little outward mark of the mighty
sovereign.
Through the rec. rood centuries the
emperor has been thc one unchanging
figure in Japan. Enveloped in a limitless put he has remained thc lined
point ot Japanese national _ life, so
that bit sanctity and inviolability ot
person are now nn more questioned
than the rising of tbe sun. So tar
above the piano of toe European doctrine ol "divine right ot kings" do
thc Japanese held their emperor that
his sanctity it almost independent
ol his personality. He it invested
with such high attributes that no.
emperor could hope further to elevate his position la tbe national
mind by his own acts. There it no
adding to or subtracting Irom the
emperor's powers. He combinci
within himsell all the rigbtt to sovereignity tnd never was bc lorced tc,
contend for the preservation ol those
rights. Tbe power* ol government
now possessed by the people ot Japan were freely given them by Emperor Mutsuhito; not one was wrested trom him.
This very exaltation of tbe emperor's position Is largely responllMc
lor the hasty conclusion of western
observers that Mutsuhito waa but an
inanimate lorm about which all tbe
outer vestments ol sanctity and
sovereignty were draped by the
ruling classes. Since tbc reported
imminence ol his death became public
this slighting view ol the emperor
hat been widely spread.
lusl how much credit fnr national
achievements must ot necessity be
given to Mutsuhito cannot be appreciated until one recalls tbat during those decades ol transition the
emperor held undlmlnlined the authority transmitted to him through tba
•get. Ile has possessed throughout
his reign the perlervid devotion ol
his subjects tn a degree equalling a
religious worship. Ile has been Iden-
tiiied with, all that is Iheir own,
with tbeir beautiful Islands, tlieir
religion tnd their language.
He hat represented no. conquering
race, no alien estate, no compulsory
end. He bas been Japanese, ol
Japan, and Uie Japanese. Tht meta-
morpbctls ot the nation and Its
people could not have taken place
without the leadership ot tbe man
who held such a Place at Mutsuhito
held at emperor. Opposition trom
him< would have stemmed that Inflow
Irom the Occident and cut ot abort
at my time die national career of
which he was unquestionably tbe
(Ulde and tbe inspiration.
Emperor Mutsuhito fell It to bis
ministers to conceive, to plan and
to mn.lt.   Vot MMtJi,   rar
self, he reserved   the olllcc of nrliiU'r
j when questions    ol policy arose ami
I ol leader when lie hail mado hi* decisions. Perhaps hi* mosl ilis-lin-
guishlng chariieterislic as a sovereign
was his soundness of judgment and
his ability to consider opposing.
views iu the councils without prejudice.
| Possessing the genius f,.i selecting
t-apahle and wise men to advise uml
to execute, he lias been willing to
accept    their  counsels   niul sanction
'tlieir derds, bringing to his Cask a
remarkable fund of common sense anil
practicality, It is said by authority the   more reliable iiceiiiisc     cot
{'Japanese t-lisl Emporox Mutsuhito
was never   Influenced    in his action-.
.by small   men     ol     sina'I    niolivis.

EDITORIAL NOTES
Thoro would appeal to bo >omo
parly scltlomflirt of Canada's policy
in r-ogawi to hot share in tlie cost of
ma.nlcfia.in* ol tlio nan, In viaw,
Irom recent London advices. Hon. ll.
I.. Honii'ii apparently recognlws tho
futility of his recent, utterances in
this regard ami is now prepared tn
advocate a "rmitid table" conference
at Ottawa, at whieli lit. Hon. Sir
Wilfrid jLfttirlcr. nml other Liberal
leaders will he present, to consult
with Mr. Winston Churchill, first
lord of 'the admiralty. Tbis Is putting the plan outlined in the London
cable- despatches very briefly, but
qui In clearly. Whether or not Sir
Wilfrid Laurler will see his way
clear to participate in such a conference remains to be seen, but it Is
reasonably certain that the Liberal
chieftain will be ready to make aay
sacrifice of party advantage to aid
in the settlement nf a question whieli
appears to be entirely beyond Uncapacity of the Tory leader and his
counsellors. It is to to hoped that
the talking aboul Canada's participation in Oreat Drltaln's naval affairs
will soon cease and that soim'thing
practical will shortly eventuate. Thc
original Lffiiricr policy seems to be
the one solution of the problem that
will appeal most strongly lo the
Canadian people as a whole, and one
cannot but think tHiit in tbc outcome
Hon. It. L. Horden will be compelled
to adopt it, along Hues sufficiently
modified to save his face.
For a long time past the Herald
has been persistently and cnnslstciit-ly
advocatiuc a vigorous policy ol land
settlement, witb particular regard to
tlie Kast, Kootenay tlittriet. At the
outset our efforts In this direction
were condemned by the Mcllride
government organs, as purely partisan attacks upon that administration. However, the facts are gradually penetrating the editorial offices
of somo of lhe chief organs of thc
Mcltride administration and more or
less frank appeals arc lieing made to
premier Mcllride to arouse himself
to the necessity of grappling with
what is undoubtedly the greatest
problem confronting this province at
the present moment.
A tht it! onal and extremely satisfactory endorsement of the Herald's altitude on this subject comes from
such an entirely non-partisan source
as Archbishop McNejI, nf Vancouver,
who, in tlu* course nf a recent public
address, delivered before lhe Progress cltlb id the Terminal City,
spoke with unusual force and emphasis tn the subject of land settle*
limit in this province and of the urgent duty of ibe government nf the
day to Ik- up and doing-
That the settlement of Die country
districts is aol at all in proportion
with the development ot Vancouver
and other Cities of llie province nnd
that the future of Hritish Columbia
should tw insured by. the creation of
substantial farming communities,
was the statement and warning given by Archbishop McNeil, in tho
course of his address.
"I wish to state this." pronounced
the .irehbislu p in concluding a not-
aMe spi*ech. "Vou, the business men
ot Vancouver, m-cd a buffer between
you and—I will not say a slump or
panic—but rather a stringency. Vou
are on tho crest (,f the wave at the
present time.
"It a l.uropcan war brottO out,
Vancouver would In* one of tbc places
to to hardest hit, ns Ruro|iean capi-
3 f
tal, whieh has been and is onft ol the
big factors in tlie'building up of tbis
city, would be deflected.
"Mining and fisheries are Industries
conducted by a few wealthy men or
companies. in times of stringency
they can close their purses ami wait
for better limes. Hut in a large
[arming community you have men
who cannot close down. They must
sell their produce and thus, iu times
of stringency, thc burden is equally
shared, as they must lower the
prices ot foodstuffs In order to sell.
In this manner hard times may he
bridged over with a minimum of discomfort.
"The man who comes here, who
should go on thc farm, gets employment as a laborer at fairly high
wages, and catching the spirit of
speculation, puts his money in a
town or city lot. He tries to get
out on Ibe lund eventually, but he
finds he cannot sell his lot with thc
present current high prices.
"In tho lower Fraser valley there
is a magnificent tract of a country
tbat should be all settled by this
time. The government has spent
$1,000,000, more or less, In dyking
that part of the province. There ale
thousands of acres of dyked liver
bottom laml In the lower Fraser
valley that are not being used today.
They are unoccupied because the
speculators are holding them for
high pr ces which thc intending farmer cannot afford to pay.
"In my opinion conditions are sucli
that tho government is Uie only* or*
gani/ation capable of handling tbe
problem', In New /calami eighteen
years ago the government .organized
a low rate of interest tor farmers
loans. Get after the government
and Influence them to organize a
loan department that will take mortgages at a low rate ot interest and
ut a minimum ot cost."
Archbishop McNeil's remarks naturally had more specific reference
lo conditions on thc coast than to
those prevailing in tbc up-country,
Hit they none the less form an effective criticism ot the government's
apathy, throughout tlie province iq
tikis connection. Here, in this great
Kast K co tenay country, we know
that tbere are thousands upon thousands ot acres of the finest agricultural lands lying useless, because of
the very difficulties outlined by thc
archbishop. Wc know that it tbe
Mcllride, or any other government,
would tackle tbis question In the
proper spirit, in thc course ot a very
few years the Kast Kootenay district would In producing agricultural
products, of one kind and another,
including live stock, fruits and vegetables, that would make an enormous
d (Terence in thc totals of food
s luffs imported from the United
States and other countries, besides
.Hiding immensely to the prosperity
of the towns throughout tbc distriet. Conditions are so obvious
that it is remarkable tbat llie Me-
Biiilc government do not make some
lumest effort to grapple with the situation, and it is more remarkable
that the electors do not insist upon
some definite action being taken
promptly.
From present indications It is
clear thai the people of the whole
province are becoming alive to the
urgency of tbcT-,ituat.oti and the Mcllride government will either have to
get busy, or give way to an administration   alive to the best interests
t the province as a whole., A large
measure of support has been gained
by the Mcllride government because
of Its railway policy, but no matter
how good that may have been, and
much of ft is open to serious criticism, it inust.be perfectly obvious
'1 ha t wit Ikki I some active, well
thought out scheme for the settlement of the public lands, ttie best
of railway policies cannot in tbe
long run accomplish a great deal. It
is true that there arc difficulties in
the way, but no greater than have
lieen met and overcome etsewfiere in,
the world. Premier McBride might
study with advantage what bas been
accomplished in tlie Australasian
colonies, particularly in New Zetland.

McC'LURR   DISCUSS SHEEP
AND   STIiAWHHISY CULTURE.
Tboro wns a fairly good attendance
nt tlm meeting ol tlio Parmer's Institute last evening, when excellent
papers wero given by Mr. ,1. II. McClure and Mr. 0.   A. Cock.
Mr. C. A. Cook gave a paper on
tlie breeding and bundling .,( sheep In
tbe Itowney Marsh country ol Kent,
England, anil described in detail tlte
operations ul tin- llm-k muster and
bis helpers ilir.iii.gli.nil Ihe year In
ehe Inline of the Itowney Marsh
breed of she.1i, relating the precautions necessary to successfully
li,iiniii' a flock where by reason of
tbe wrt many difficulties arc encountered In the work,
At tbe close nl Mr. Cock's remarks n number of tin1 members present discussed tbe p. ssiliilltlm ol
sheep breeding iu Kootenay, and the
sense ot those present was that it
would nc almost useless to attempt
it, except in coyote prool enclosures
as is done in Oregon, Calltornla,
and otlier states uf the union. At
llie usual price ot mutton here even
thus outlay ought to bc well repaid
as the vegetation is tar better adapted to sheep than to cattle
Mr. ,1. II. McClure gave a paper
on strawberry culture, in whieh he
slated that a peculiar characteristic
ol this district in bis experience was
that manured lands gave lar too
much plant growth to procure tbe
Inst results in Iruit.
He emphasized the netd ol trc-
if.icnt working ot the soil before
tween rhe old matted row _ and the
possible store of moisture, and said
his -best results had been where he
retarded the growth of the plants
lo be act until alter the transplanting was accomplished. He lelt convinced that by digging the fall belore and carefully heeling in over
winter this was most easily accomplished
Mr. McClure much preferred the
hedge row, a midway system between the old matced row and the
bill system, as neat suited to
local conditions and recommended
thc twelve tooth cultivator as the
most, fitting tool for use in tlte
strawberry plantation, especially'
where moisture was lacking. Spcak-
ng nl winter mulch. Mr. McClure
lelt that one was always safer to
apply this, although lie had not done
so last year, hnj such a winter
could not often Hie looked Inr. On
the question ol removing the mulch
an animated discussion ensued, one
member recommending chat it be
allowed lo remain and alter the
Iru ting season burning it oft along
with the old foliage ot the plantt.
This Is a plan olten used In Uieeast
bul tbc tense of the meeting teemed
to be that such a method was too
wasteful ot vegetable matter to be
employed in a country where tht
soil is already depleted of such matter, as well as the difficulty of putting out Tire in the summer here
with safety. After a rccoinmrndt-
lion nl sorts lound adapted to the
district by'Mr. McClure and tome
general discussion nl the laxity ol
enforcement of the noxious weeds
act by the government authorities
the meeting was brought to a. clone
by a hearty vote ol thanks to Mr.
Cock and Mr. McClure Inr their Interesting papert.

crops it is fairly certain that the demand will ii.t only keep up but that
it will very severely test thc capacities nl tbe various mills to meet

"Walk, i.osh Darn Yuu, Walk." The
heroes nl the poem arc Klko residents, who lelt Klko last week In an
auiumobilc and returned weary and
tool-sore afld louking as II they had
loads nn tlieir minds as big at a
haystack. They left Klko going
down the Itooivlllo road and lecling
like lorty nullum lords. A well
known luce horse uwncr, livery and
pack train proprietor was seal.xl
with the chauffeur, who is the acknowledged llamey (ildiield, of the
whole dlatrlet, and tlu: Iwo got into
u treated argument as lo the rules uf
the mad, the liveryman claiming
that on discuvering au approaching
leant llie fhaiiileiii must stop offside
and cover his machine w th a blanket
painted tv i-urrcspund with the surrounding scenery. The I'b.iulleiir said
it was nu such a gosh darned thing
when a white tailed deer crossed tlw
road followed lit a mountain liun and
our Imlil rhaiiili-iir turns into the
.base and bingo a busted tire. This
delayed ihe |oy riders lull) twenty
mimit.-s, and starting again they
si mu reached Long Prtlrit and ran
int., a herd ul cattle lielunging to tlie
I'uarler Circle Ihree rami., killing a
time teal uld steer and stampeding
the rest. They erussed the (ireat
Northern track at an angle ol lorty-
liie. and un duwn Itawlilde (lul.-h unto lhe Plains uf Waldo. The wind
shield out ol commission and going
su last against a bead wind it wis
impossible tu hold any conversation
und sweet peace reigned supreme.
Thej .-miml at I'ast le Kng, and
Ihi' hunch were totally entertained
by    Mrs.    Palmer.     Letting Krag
they slipped tlit..ugh the iv.kj.Is liko
a conn In a melon patch and pulled
up at Waldo and were entertained by
President I'. McXab, ol thc Waldo
board ul trade, and had a very enjoyable visit, and here met A. W.
MtcKcn.lc, rf Spokane, who sells tbc
celebrated Simonds saws and declares that no person ean mako saws to
saw like his saws can saw. Tbe
crowd insisted on MacKcnztc joining
the parly nnd coming to Klko, where
the tourists leave the C.P.lt. trains
to take in the fascinating sights of
thc old historic burg, surrounded hy
■pntkling glaciers amid scenery that
can't la' equalled nn the continent nl
Kurope. They passed through lleau-
tilul llaynes, calm and nc.nvliil, but
•ltd Ihey were outside Ihr .Ity
limits  he    turned    the huut
loose, uphill and .lown dale and as it
was getting dusk the liveryman insisted on the chauffeur running his
machine according, to Hoyle and thinks of the road. They had reached
ihc foot nf the Mott grade and tlm
chauffeur, mad as a wet hen, demanded to know what'were thc rules
I the road alter dark.
Weel, Hilly, at night yc mon send
up a red rocket every mile and then
wail ten minutes for the road to
clear. Then yc mon go vary careful
ye ken blowing your horn and' shooting Human candles. You have oil
heard them say that patience, perseverance and sweet nil would make
hens lay.
Hut all the persuasion those men
could use that bu//. wagon would
nut climb that hill. Thoy took the
machine apart and rebuilt it, but
nn good, and it was walk, gosh darn
ynu, walk, and they came into town
the hack way and In at the back
doors, After satisfying the Inner
iiiuu they look a team of Ivory
handled mustangs to bring tla- disturbance into town. They got tlu
blamed thing onto the grade so no
une could pass and came in lor two
mure teams, -and held two livery
ig* and another auto until midnight before tbey could get passed.
MacKcnzie told the writer that for
concentrated,   triple distilled, double
iss excitement, he certainly would
1,'ftinunend Klko. When any ot tbe
party was asked about tbe trip
tbey politely asked to be excused until they took a long rest.

Grief url Worry
drain the nervous system with
disheartening rapidity. ' Lack
of interest, lack of appetite and
insomnia result.
The first step towards recovery i
lies in rebuilding the worn out
nerve fibres, which can best be
done with Lecithin, the form of
Phosphorus required for nerve
repair. .
—Asaya-Neurall -I
THE    NEW    REMEDY    FOPI
Nervous Exhaustion
contains Lecithin (concentrated
from thousands of eggs) and
makes possible this cure.
It feeds the nerves, induces
sleep, quickens the appetite, aids
digestion, and soon restore* full
nerve vitality. The beneficial
effects are evident almost from the
first dose.

THE COST OF LIVING
is a problem that affects, in a greater or less degree,
every member of the community. It presses hard
on some, on a few its effect is a negligible quantity.
THE enterprising merchant is thoroughly
alive to the fact that the high cost of living
is in many cases an oppressive burden. He knows
that the margin between income and expenditure
is often a very narrow one, He buys newspaper
space to let people know that he knows, In short,
he advertises.
The merchant who advertises has something
worth while to tell. That stands to reason, doesn't
it, because newspaper space costs money ? It will
pay, , you, therefore, to watch carefully the
announcements of the stores that advertise. You'll
find all the good stores advertising in
"THE HERALD"
* I r H E persistent reader of newspaper adver-
■"■ tisements has discovered the best way to
combat the high cost of living. His dollar has a
greater buying power than that of the non-reader
—or spasmodic reader—of ads because he employs it with more knowledge and more discrimination. It is an easy matter to cut down
your living expenses by fifteen, twenty, or twenty-
five per cent.—and even more—by being a caretul
student of the daily store ads. In this way you
will get " wise" to values. You will ask for the
advertised article at the advertised price, and you
will know before you go shopping what you are
going to pay.

MIKlie LIGHT AUDIBLE
AN     INVENTION   THAT MAKES
THE     SIJNLIOHT    BOAR-
BOON TO THE BLIND.
Making light audible, causing Uie
sunlight lo roar and the moonlight
lo be distinctly heard—these ire
sonic ol the ual.i.'v.'.iiviits .-laimed by
a remarkable instrument known as
the "ofitophoue," which was among
tbo inhibit* at the Optical convention exhibition, opened at South
Kensington,   London, Kng, recently.
Mr. Kourncr d'Albe, tbc inventor,
i* lecturer in physics at lliriutngfcaiii
University. Ill* invent..* Is bunt
on the well-known property possessed
Iiy selenium ..( changing its rosist-
ntn'i' when illuminated. That properly wai, discovered in 1*1* it Uie
rahle slat ion at talent ia, in County
Kerr)'. A sensitive indicator cu be
marie tu move by merely holding i
lighted match over a selenium cell, to
which is attached in electric battery.
Thi* movement is In the optophone
aiUu-liial to a telephone arrangement,
ami so made audible. By thi*
mean* It is claimed that though the
blind cannot actually tee, thoy will
la- able l« luetic light by tke sound.
A striking cxm'nmcnt with the optophone Is cipcricuccd by pointing
tbc camera-like hoi ho t window ind
adjust to "iHenee." Then 11 the hind
is pused terms the open end its
ptasige It indicated by a ratping
sound. If the Imtnunent It adjusted lor dtratMM light produces t
sound varying with Hi Inttniity.
Moonlight can be distinctly, heard,
while sunlight mikes n roaring
sound.
The sound ol the passing of t tha-
dow is described by I representative
nl lhe "Dtlly Chronicle," who tad
math- himself temporarily ttghtleii
hy placing a thick bandage over Ml
eye*. "The shadow whose passing
I heard," he writes, "wis cast hy a
sheet ol thick blotting-paper that hat
htm Interposed between ta arc electric light tnd the open end ol a
small raraert-llke hoi. 1 had, under
tha   Invmtor't   dt.tttttat,   slowly
moved t twitch on the optophone,
and, as be put it, 'adjusted it to the
ilrnoe.' With highly sensitive telephone receivers, such at ire used in
wireless telegraphy, fattened over my,
head, I heard not a sound. But the
moment. Mr. Fournier d'Albe Interposed thc sheet ol blotting piper a
ticking or rasping tcund reached my
j can. I wit listening to tlw pissing
ol the shadow."
"Vou say you can hear moor*
light?'' taid somewhat incredulously
a student who wis one ol a small
company In a lecture room at the
convention. "Yes," wit tbe quiet
reply; "moonlight is quite audible,
through the optophone, aad the sun
roars like a cataract, on account, of
curse, ol its more interne light"
A silence, not sceptical, hut suggestive ol slieer bewilderment, lelt
upon the comptny listening tc tho
inventor, tnd their amazement was
Intensified when Mr. Fourntcr d'Albe.
went on to tpeak ol the possibility
ot discovering the light ot stars tbat
are not visible, it lay rate, through,
nny ol the telescopes at Birmingham.
I'niversltr. Thit would teem to
bring tbe "muilc ol the spheres"
within the range of human experience, i truly remarkable achievement.
The optophone, Mr. Fnurnfer d'AIha
explained, Is lulled lo totally sight,
lest persona, and It ol little ute to
those who are only partially blind.
Thc latter, it a rule, can distinguish
between light md dtrkness, ind,
generally speaking, cm perceive tl
much light is is indicated by Uie
r.pUiphoBe. A teriet ol practical
tetts made with the blind have bees
to sucoesstul that much mon it

"From a point at or near Kort

bertn's farthest north. The company
will then proceed with tlie construct ir.n ot the line in tbe province,
of Saskatchewan. The Edmonton

Ttie complfcion of tbe railroad
means the oticiiiiig of a vast empire, which only a few years ago
was regarded as a barren waste and
useful only as a hunting ground let
tlie fur-trader and Uh* sportsman.
The. railway will criss-cross Xto
northern part of the province, of
Albertn with development lines and
shift its center of gravity and ol
population many miles northward,
and with the development of, the
resources ol thc Athabasca country
there will he created populous towns

Arctic circle, reclaiming a veritably
wilderness to the uses ot man.
Another important outlet for the
north country is a system projected
by thc Alberta, .Peace Rlwr and

granted by the Dominion government
tn WW. II. Muskett King. presM-
ent of the corporation, now * n the

enterprise, said in tbe course of an
interview while in t'.dmont-n:
"I am greatly Impressed with the
country and its possIbfHeiet, I hav.*

The route for which the charter
was granted lieglns at the International boundary, southeast  of Pinch-

KEEP IHT OUT OF POLITICS
SIR   WILFRID   LAURIER'S POSITION   IN      REFERENCE TO
I'ROPOSED CONFERENCE
Otltnwa, Aug. 11.—Although Sir
Wilfrid Laurier, in accordance witb
his long established plan, declines to
, be interviewed in reference to tbc
nuval situation, it is generally un-
dcesfood at tbe capital that he does
n- not take kindly to thc proposal that
In* should participate in a-conference,
the object ol whicli would be to evolve a naval policy agreeable to all
parties, thereby , removing the naval
loiestion Irom the sphere of politics.
i Sir Wilfrid, it is understood, takes
*n ;the view that while an opposition
need not ol necessity criticise all
government measures it should not
put itscll in such a position tbat it
would not be at liberty to do so.
Such might be the case were he, as
leader ot tho opposition, to take part
in a conference. lie believes tbat
tbe navy tfiestlon constitutes a
problem w th whieh tbe government
of lhe.day must deal, and that the
legitimate function of the opposition
is to ac-qiijcscc in or criticise the
government's proposals as.it sees Ht.

THINK    DUTY SHOULD UK LEVIED, ON ENTRIES PENDtNCI
THE RESULT OP
APPEAL.
Ottawa, Aug. 18.—The altitude ol
the government in relusing to collect duly on sized lumber entering
the prairie proline's which the exchequer court Iras decided Is dutiable,
until the appeal til the supreme court
is heard, bas brought lorth a vigorous protest Irom tlie llrilish Columbia lumber Interests. Oeorge II.
Cowan, ex-M.P., counsel tor the
lumbermen, was in Ottawa and protested to Hon. .1. I). lleid and the
acting premier, Hon. Oeorge II.
Prrley, against the custom* department not collecting duty until tbe
appeal, is heard.
I I s understood the government
has refused to change it* stand, and
will continue to allow lumber to enter Iree until alter tbe appeal is
heard. The government Irom the
lirst Ira* taken the stand tbat Ihe
lumber Irom whieh thc dispute arose
is not dutiable, though the exchequer
court has decided against tt.
The stand of the commissioner ol
customs," said Mr. Cowan, "is that
there is no law to administer, because thc notice ol appeal suspends
lhe law and nn action can be fallen
until the supreme court cane is
Ireard."
Mr. Cowan disputes the stand, am)
claims Ihat duty should have been
eollecled as soon as the exchequer
court decision was given. ft

freedom and amid natural and bcait-
tiful aurroundings. Tbe idea In his
mind was that the lions, enjoying a
large range ol liberty and magnificently housed, would attract people
to thc mountainside, where art and
nature together at their best must
lift them out of themselves and Inspire them with lolly thoughts.
Thc monument has been built ol
tlie granite which lorm* the natural
base of Tabic Mountain and has
been worked to a texture which is
not so One as to be out ol scale
nr harmony with its mountainous
surroundings.
In front of the monument is the
statue "Physical Energy," by Frederick Watls, It. A., representing a
man reining in Jilt horse alter some
■vent deed and scanning the future
for the nexl achievement. It was not!
design.*! hy Watlt especially lor
Rhodes or his monument, but was
presented as a gilt to South Africa
out ot admiration tor the genius ol
Cecil Rhodes.
Suggestions were made In place if.
elsewhere. But It was Rhode's
dream In make the Cape Peninsula
thc cuter ot art and lieauty in
South Alrica. , It seemed natural,
therefore, that this gile of tht.
greatest ot English artists should bc
