Beale made a brief address, expressing the hope that tlie new officers
would receive the enthusiastic support of the citizens, otherwise it
would he impossible to make tbe
work of the year a success. The
following resolutions for presentation at the meeting of ihe Associated Boards of Trade were presented
and adopted:
Whereas, a wagon road extending
from the westerly limit ol the
Province of Alberta through the
Crows Nest Pass, following the line
ot the Crows Nest Pass railway to
Kootenay Landing, .is necessary to
facilitate the development of the resources of the public domain and to
facilitate communication between the
various towns and camps along the
snid railway and between tbe provinces ot British Columbia and Alberta:
And whereas, certain portions of
such road have already been con-
Therefore, be it resolved, by this
convention of the Associated Boards
of Trade of Eastern British Columbia that the provincial government
be asked to appropriate a sufficient
sum of money to construct such portions of said road as arc required
to complete the same from the west-
erly limit of the province of Alberta
lo Kootenay Landing, and that const met ion on the same be commenced
as speedily as possible.
Whereas a number of ranchers are
established on the easterly side ot
tbe Kootenay river, across the said
river from the town of Wardner, tbe
nearest point on the Crows Nest Pass
railway for the shipment of freight;
And whereas, the only means ot
crossing the said river is by the
railroad bridge, hy boats or via the
Fort Steele bridge;
And whereas, Ft is expedient that
for tbe further ami speedy development of that district a public bridge
he built across the snid river at
Wardner to provide access to markets for the produce of the said

i.i Uml Uie provincial government
e asked to appropriate a sufficient
run of money to construct such
bridge, and that such const ruction lie
commenced as speedily as possible.
Whereas, n wagon road extending
from the town ot Marysville up tbe
Si. Marys river to the divide is
ecessnry to facilitate the develop-
iciil or the vast mineral anil Umber resources of that district;
And whereas, such development
would greatly enure tn the advantage
of llie province by reason of tbe
la tire increase In revenue, which
winild result from the opening up ol
the said district;
Therefore, he it resolved, by this
convention of the Associated Boards
of Eastern British Columbia that the
provincial government he asked to
appropriate a sufficient sum ot money
to construct such road, and that const met ion be commenced ns speedily
as possible.
Whereas, it is expedient that more
direct communication be established
bv wanjn road between the city of
Crnnnrr*ok and the town of Marysville and between tbe camps airing
Ihe said route than Is now provided;
And whereas, it is necessary lot
such more direct communication that
a bridge he constructed neross the
St. Marys river near•vcliffr;
Therefore, he It resolvor, by thin
invention, of the Associated Boards
of Trade of Eastern British Columbia, that the provincial government
he asked to appropriate a sufficient
sum ol money to construct such
bridge, and tbat such construction be
commenced as speedily as possible..
Whereas, a number of   ranchers are
established on the southerly side   of
the Elk river on Tobacco Plains;
And whereas, u number of saw
mills and logging camps arc established on the northerly side of the

And whereas, it is expedient for
the more convenient and economical
marketing of the produce of the
said ranches tbat more convenient
access lie had to the said mills aud
camps than is now provided by the
existing bridge over the said river,
which bridge is some distance up
river tn the mountains;
Therefore, be it resolved, hy this
convention ot the Associated Boards

In ihe meantime Premier McBride
■iud members of tbe government are
engaged in formulating their programme along well defined lines. They
will bold a caucus tor the consideration of mailers of public importance
on Wednesday.
Conductor Joseph Jackson, who
has been iu Chicago for the past
month as a representative uf the O.
R. C. ol this division, seuds the following from the Chicago Record*
Herald of February 28, which, he
says, sizes up tbe situation. Mr.
Jackson arrived home on Tuesday
and will leave again on the 18th for
Winnipeg and from there return to
Chicago, where the decision of tbe
men will be received, and action tat
en accordingly.
"Negotiations between the railroad
managers and the trainmen and conductors were abruptly terminated
yesterday without uu agreement being reached.
"The (question ot the greatest strike
in railroad history is now up to tbe
men. Committees representing 50,-
two men ou forty-two railroad systems through the West left Uiu city
last night carrying witb them strike
ballots to be voted on.
"About fifteen days will be required
to lake a secret ballot. That the
vote will be in favor ot accepting the
compromise offer made by the railroads in not expected. The ballot
places before the men tbe uvu questions whether they shall accept the
offer or place the authority to order
a strike in the hauds of their executive officers. It a strike vote is carried the officers will again put tbe
matter up to tbe general managers
before culling out the men.
"Several concessions were offered M
the general managers, but few ot
them were acceptable lu the committees. Last night the officers received a communication from the general
managers, stating that tbey had
reached the limit, and would gu no
further. The committees also replied that tbey had also bad made all
the concessions from their original
demands that they u.it Justified in
making, and lhat it was up to the
rank and file of their respective organizations to decide on Ihe next

In wages with practically no change
in the hours or working conditions.
The men on all freight trains were

While men on passenger trains were
offered less than 7 per cent. Increase.
"The eight hour 'day originally proposed by the men, which in reality
means a speed of twelve and one half
miles an hour instead of ten miles,
as at present, was waived during the
conferences nnd a substitute ot
eleven miles an hour or a nine hour
day proposed. The managers refused
to make any concessions on the question of hours, except that on (tne or
two roads, where the wages are not
based on twelve hours a day, a reduction was offered with ten hours as
a basis.
"In the original demands of the men
they asked for time and one half for
overtime. This demand they also
waived and offered to accept a pro

the roads no allowance was made
for overtime. The men were paid by
the one hundred miles, and it it required fifteen hours to cover the distance thev were paid Iui une bundled mile.*., the same as if they covered the distance Id ten hours.
Where those conditions prevailed the
managers offered to pay pro rata
wages aftei ten hours.
"The negotiations between the railroads and the trainmen and conductors have been carried ou in almost
daily conferences since Jan. '21 und
every inch of the ground bas been
contested. Last Thursday both
sides were on J he verge ot a break,
but the following day the railroads
made turtber concessions which prolonged tbe conferences.
"The last conference was held Mon-
day and tbe offer of ihe roads was
rejected bv the committees. They
sent notice to the general managers
ol their action and waited to hear
the final decision ol the railroads,
which was sent them last night.
"Neither P. 11. Morrissey, chief of
the Brotherhood of Railroad Train-
Order of Railway Conductors, would
men, or A- B. Garretson, chief of the
venture any prediction on the final
outcome of the controversy.
" 'We have tried our best to reach
a settlement and have failed,' said
Morrissey.     'We feel   tbat   we   con
ceded all WB reasonably could in
order to avert trouble, and it is up
to the men we represent. What their
verdict will be we cannot tell. We
will pursue our usual conservative
methods and endeavor to carry out
the wishes ol out men. It vmII bo

•The two organizations will stand
togejjher in the event that a strike
becomes necessary, as, with the exception of the con luctors on tho
Northwestern system, tho men on all
ihe western roads ace represented by
the committees.
"Committees representing tho

within this province. These
points were under consideration, and
us yet the government had been unable to reach a decision as to what
■oursc would he adopted relative to
them. But he could say one thing,
namely, that il the legislature did
not declare otherwise, either the
Dominion Lord's Day Act would he
enforced in lolo or no prosecutions
whatever would be sanctioned under
its provisions. He did not think
tl.iit. the government should tak,. any
half measures, one way or the other.
Speaking ol the net itself, Hun.
Mr. Pulton expressed the opinion Uml
there were some exceedingly wise
provisions in it- For instance, he
thought that the clause prohibiting
slni.il ing iu the vicinity of a church
on Sunday one lhat should he enforced. The prevailing oniui™ thai ihe
measure, it applied, would interfere
wilh Sunday fishing or shooting, he
explained, was without foundation.
The nnlv wav ill which it .fleeted
those recreations was by stopping
llie excursions from the city to the
hunting resorts Oil the seventh day.
Apart from Mint there was no mention of hunting, shooting or other
similar, sports. He gathered from a
■aiefiil stuilv of the matter that it
was aimed principally at the holding
,f performances, etc., to which admission was charged; in short, such
entertainments as are held, not only
lor the delectation ol the public, but
Im the gain of the promoters.
It. was pointed out that the hiring
of pleasure boats was not prohibited, nor was shooting. In regard to
the latter there is a clause which
reads as ioltows: " "It shall not be
lawful lor anv person on the Lord's
Day to shoot with or use any gun.
ride or other similar engine, either
lor gain or in such manner or in
such places as to disturb other persons in attendance at public worship
or in observance of that day." Thi:
is all that is said in reference to the
recreation of disciples of Nimrod, so
lhat it is sate to assume that tin
sportsman will not be despoiled of
the one day a week to which they
look forward so keenly. They also
will he able to obtain transportation
to and from the city, as a clause upon the. operation ol railways, rends
as follows:
"Nothing heroin shall prevent the
operation on the Lord's Day for passenger traffic of any railway subject
to the legislative authority of any
province unless such railway is prohibited by provincial authority from
so operating."
Another clause, which may be con
sidered a qualification ol the former
is appended:
"It. shall not be lawful for any
person on the Lord's Day, execpf as
provided in anv provincial act or law
now or hereinafter in force,
to     run,       conduct      or con
vey by any mode of con
veyanee any excursion on which passengers are conveyed tor hire anil
having for its principal or only object the carriage on that day ol such
passengers lor amusement or pleasure, and passengers so conveyed
shall not be deemed to be travelers
within the meaning ol this act.
In discussing the measure generally, Hon. Mr. Fulton expressed the
opinion that it it was the Intention
of the Dominion government to loree
people to take at least one day's
lest in seven, the act had been
wrongly named. From its title it
might he assumed that an attempt
was being made to coerce the public
tn adopt certain religious principles,
lie did not think that the latter was
Intended. If it was, it would prove
futile, because it was treading upon a
matter which touched the personal
freedom of every individual very
closely—something which would
quickly be resented and which could
do no good whatever. As a measure tor providing a day's rest in
seven for the public at large it  was
 niiii'iiilnblc.      .Moreover,  he    said,
while there were some provisions
with which be   personally did     not

interest the working of the legislation
passed at the last session of the federal house which makes St. Pat*

throughout the Dominion. All business of every kind will be suspended
throughout the entire day from midnight tu midnight. Stores uud offices will be compelled to close, no
baseball, lacrosse, football, hockey or
other games will be allowed. In
fact there will be nothing doing on
St. Patrick's Day this year owing to
the new law. Hotel bars will be
closed and it any Irish gentleman intends to celebrate by consuming sundry muintiitics of the best Irish
beverages he will have to lay in a
supply the night before. The new
hill does not prohibit tlm holding of

As this is the first occasion ol the

The annual meeting of the International Coal & Coke company of
Coleman was held at Spokane Wednesday when the annual report of tlie
president of the company was published, giving details concerning the
operations of the company for the
past year and showing what has been
accomplished by the company since
it has been in existence.
The report shows the company to
be in a most satisfactory condition.
It shows that the company bas expended nearly half a.million dollars
in equipping its mine, yet in the

half- million. Considering that it
was only a few months more than
three years ago that the first pick

the company must have been unusually, if not amazingly successful.
In detail the report shows that a

the surplus at the close of 1906 was
$393,16'). The company has been in

The man who is behind time is tlie
worst troiPnlc the printer has to
deal with. He Invariably wants the
printer to lay down other work, no
matter how pressing, or to delay the
issue of his paper in order to accommodate the laggard, the man
least deserving nf accommodations.
If a newspaper awaited the pleasure
of all its contributors it would never
get out its lirst issue. The only
wav to do is to let people who are
behind lime, sutler the results. If
there is anv work that requires care
and deliberation, it is preparing copy
for the printer and printing the
same. Ilere is the invariable remark ol the man who comes into the
print shop with a job: "1 don't,
know whether you can read this copy
or not, but I want the work done
right away." The customer has thus
done, at the start, about all that he
can to prevent good work being done.
Printing is not like merchandising.
Wc cannot reach up on a shelf ami
pull down the finished job; but it requires time and work—labot being
tbe chief Item of expense in printing.

'Some time ago," said the traveling man Irom Little ltock, "1 was
horsebacking through the woods in
that Irontier portion of our stale
in which the hogs still run wild, with
an occasional honieophalic. dose ol
corn to keep them reminded that
there are ties that bind ttieni to mankind. In a heavily timbered tract I
came upon a big herd ol porkers that
were behaving in the most remark!-
able manner. They would run madly
in one direction lor a hundred yards
or so, squealing vigorously and hopefully, then stop, snill the air, utter a
shriek of disappointment, and make
an equally mad dash at another
angle. 1 watched them some time
without being able in the least to
fathom the mystery.
"Half a mile further on f came to
a cabin in tho woods. An old man
sat on inverted keg beside the doorway, smoking a corncob pipe. Tho
quandary ol Hie pigs wos still torturing me, so, as soon as wc had passed the perlunetory, "Howdy," 1 said
to him:
" 'Stranger, I passed a lot of hogs
down there in the brush just now
that were behaving very strangely.
They would start and run at full
speed in one direction, then stop and
take a fresh start some other way.
Can vou explain it?"
" 'Yes, stranger, I reckon I kin,'
he replied in the stage whisper that
had characterized his first greeting.

"1 have come," said the sad-laced
man, "to learn when you intend to
bury your husband; I (nought I
would attend tbe funeral."
"You are laboring under some terrible mistake," said the wile. "My
husband is not dead."
"Why, he surely must be," said the
sad-faced man.
"But I know that he is not. How
in the world did you get the impression that he was dead?"
"Why, he told me a week ago that
he would pay me the 12.50 he owed
me yesterday if he was alive."—Ex

Teach bim that It is better to die
than to He; that It Is better to
starve than to steal; that It is hetter t obe a scavenger ur a wood-
chopper than an idler and a dead-
beat; that it is just as criminal and
recomprehensive to waste Monday as
to desecrate Sunday; that labor is
the price ol all honest possessions;
that no one is exempt trom the obligation to labor with head, hands or
heart; that "an honest man is the
noblest work ol God;" Hint knowledge is power; that labor is worship
and idleness sin; that it is better to
eat the crust ol independent poverty
than to luxuriate amid the richest viands as a dependent. Teach him
these lacts till they are woven into
his being and regulate his life, and
we will insure his success—though the

A genuine mother could no mote

a robin could raise a hawk. When
we say a "genuine mother" we mean
something more than a mother who
prays with her bov and sends him to
Sunday school. All these things ate
good, and indispensable as Inr as
Ihey go, but there is a lot, more to
do to train a boy besides praying
with him, just as there are things
necessary to the cultivation ol a
garden besides reading a manual. To
sneered with roses one must prune,
weud anil line a great deal. To make
a boy into a pure man, a mother
must do more than pray. She must,
live Willi him in the sense nf comrade and closest friend. She must
stand hy him in time ol temptation
as the pilot stieks to the wheel when
rapids are around. She must never
desert him to go off to superintend

A newspaper is often placed in a
peculiar position, says an eichanee.
It will refuse advertising for city
houses, in order to stand by its own
merchants, but a solicitor for a city
printing office will come along and
take away work from the very men
the paper has made the sacrifice for,
A business man will wit refuse trade
from outside sources, and when newspapers do so, in the interests of busi,
ness men, there should be enough reciprocal feeling to see that they do
not suffer financial loss by it.
The Medicine Hat News and Times
are in .. heated controversy over the
question as to which paper is the
Ik-si medium for advertising a lost

publicity purposes. The people of
that city are waking up.
Brains are always un asset in any
avocation in life.
Talk about a lumber trust in Western Canada, why does not some eastern agitator tike up the paper trust
of this country. Four times a year
wc send out a request for prices on
a certain grade of hook paper to the
different paper firms of this country
and always get a reply from each,
und invariably it is courteous and
the price in each instance is just the
same to the quarter of a cent. Funny coincidence, is it not?
The Herald has confidence in the
patriotism of Premier McBride, and
feels no hesitancy in saying that the
needs of this district will receive the
turning season fair treatment at his
hands. The Herald also feels safe
in making the assertion that -J. A.
Harvey, who was the Conservative
candidate for this district, but who
met with defeat, will willingly cooperate ns the one who has the ear
ol the government, with Or. King,
the member, in impressing upon the
government the needs of this district. Mr. Harvey is a citizen of
Cranhrook and this I district. He has
made his fortune here. He has large
Interests here, and he Is loyal to the
district and the people. There is no
reason to suppose that he would do
otherwise than exert himself in behalf of the people of tlie district in
which he lives. If there are any
who think otherwise, the Heralil
would insist that they withhold their
judgment, The Herald feels that Mr.
Harvey realizes that the election is
over. He is anxious to sec this
part of British Columbia keep pace
with the progress of the rest of the
province, and would he the last man
to interfere with that progress, either by protest or failure to use all
the influence that he possesses as the
nne who controls the patronage of
the distriat, to work with Dr. King
for the benefit of all. In political
matters, of course, that is a different proposition, hut in permanent improvements and appropriations that
this district is entitled to, Mr. Harvey will be found on the side of advancement, and not a leggand In tht

said the confederation polity of protecting Canadian industries ami the

were all measures which were so
fiercely denounced and as determinedly opposed ;is Chamberlain's proposals are now. Yet even the opponents now admitted that by these

ministers and three elders were present. Rev. II. R. (irant was chosen moderator. Application was

proposal of a new Presbyterian

Vancouver, Feb. 28.—-"There is
practically no such place as Prince
Rupert," said Charles E. Tlsdall,
who returned on the steamer Tecs
yesterday from a visit to the future
Grand Trunk terminus. "What is to
be known as Prince Rupert is a& yet
only a construction camp—Just like
what Vancouver was twenty-four
years ago."
"What dors the site of the place
look like?" Mr. Tisdall was asked.
"Just at* present it is nothing but
a muskeg." said Mr. Tisdall. "The
entire site is covered with from six
inches to six feet of moss ami de
caved vegetation. But the slope of
the ground is such that it can be
easily (drained, and when this is done
it should prove very rich bind. In
my opinion the Grand Trunk officials
are perfectly right in not allowing
any one to come there yet. There
is no need for any one who is not a
laborer or engaged in clearing the
land, Quite a large clearing has
been made, but it Is nothing but a
construction camp so far.
"At present there are about two
hundred nnd fifty men there, of
which fully two hundred are Japanese who are employed in clearing tbe
townsite. Tbe rest are white men
anionic them being many Vancouver
people. The buildings as yet only
inf*ude those necessary to shelter
the men and provide living facilities
for the. A fair sized wharf has
been constructed, and rails have been
laid running up from tbe wharf to
several large storehouses. A donkey
engine hauls ears up from the
wharf to these storage sheds, in
which everything is put to keep dry
as soon as it is landed."

Many a man has escaped perils of
lire and ocean to fall a prey lo
disease. Bilc-ans saved Fireman J.
It. Flanagan, of Knglan Road, Kingston, from ibis fate, lie says: "I
suffered terribly from indigestion and
constipation. After fowl I bad acute
pain, a sensation of weight at the
stomach, and belching, followed hj
a worn-out, languid feeling. Mv
bowels would nol wnrk healthily,
had headaches were common, and I
fell Into a weak, worn-oat state.
What would have happened to me but
for Bileans I don't know! One box
of this vegetable remedy greatly improved me and a few boxes cured me.
I have now gained weight and am
quite restored." Bileans also cure
piles, female ailments, anaemia,
sprinf; debility, blood Impurities,
Dimples, eruptions, and all liver and
Sidney troubles. All druggists and
stores ,it fifty cents a bov, or from
Bilean Co., Toronto, for price.

Sunrtar Singh, native of Amritsar
district of the Punjab British India,
who was injured at Slocan Junction
Friday night and died Saturday
morning, was burned on a funeral
pyre, according lo the rites ot bis
race, this afternoon.
His friemls made application for
permission for such a funeral to Chief
of Police Bullock-Webster on Saturday, after formal conferences of several members of the city council permission wns granted, Mr. Webster
chose the city grounds on the hill
.is tile site, and fixed 2 o'clock this
afternoon us the hour.
Long before Ihe time hundreds of
people had made their way to the
hilt. The spectators included men,
women amt children. Siimhn Singh
had tht; largest funeral cortege ever
seen in Nelson. The behavior of
Ihe spectators was entirely respectful, most of thu men standing with
heads uncovered.
First a part of the wood was piled
(Irmly though loosely, and pioU-ctcd
on both sides bv stakes tlrmly driven
through the snow ami into the ham
ground, that tin* pyre might not fall
until all should be burned-
Then the venerable looking Ishayal
Singh spoke rigidly but clearly in his
native tongue, presumably saying tlm
ritual for the occasion. As he closed all his country joined in a lament.
Thu body, enclosed in a white shroud,
was then placed on Un- pyre, ,t
frame work made above, then more
wood piled on top. Coal oil was
then poured over all, and at 3 o'clock
the torch was applied. By six
o'clock only a few ashes will remain
of Sundar Singh, sometime a loyal
Soldier of the Queen." The ashes
will be preserved and sent home to
his widow.
