THE ISLANDER, CUMBERLAND, B.C., SATURDAY,' OCTOBER 26, 1912
Mayor McLeod  Intends   Doing
His Duty as Long as He   is
Mayor of this City.
Subscription price, $1.50 por year
The city council held their regular meeting in the council chambers last Monday evening, there
being1 present Mayor McLeod,
Aids. Banks, Beveridge, Campbell, Cessford, Maxwell and Willard. The minutes of the last
regular and special meetings were
read and adopted.
The minutes of the special
meeting stated that the cost of
the concrete sidewalk was
$8260.S5, including extras of
which $3,260.85 is slill owing.
City Clerk McKinnon read the
following communications:
Office of the Deputy Minister,
Ottawa, 23rd September, 1912.
To H. S. Clements, Esq., M.P.,
Vancouver, B.C.
Deak Sir: I have your letter
of the 14th inst and wiil arrange
to have the sidewalk in front of
the postoffice at Cumberland,
B.C., repaired, if the cost of
damage does not exceed the sum
mentioned in Mayor McLeod's
letter to you, viz., $150. I have
requested the Chief Architect to
communicate with Superintendent Henderson in regard to the
matter at ouce,   Yours truly,
Deputy Minister.
To H. S. Clements, Esq., M.P.,
Vancouver, B.C., Oct. fl, 1912:
Dear Sir:- -With further refer
ence to my letter to you of the
23rd ult., concerning silk walk in
front of the postoffice at Cumber
land, B.C., I find that this matter
has already been a subject of correspondence between our Resident Architect in British Columbia
and the city clerk of that place.
Apparently no repairs are required to the sidewalk which is
in perfect condition, but that
what the Corporation of the City
of Cumberland desire is to take
up and relay the sidewalk to suit
a new grade they have fixed on
Dunsmuir Avenue and that, as
the grade was given the Department by the town officials at the
time the sidewalk was laid, should
be paid for entirely by the Cor<
poration.
Yours very truly, ■
Deputy Minister,
It was moved' and carried to
lay the above communication on
the table,  to come up later for
discussion.
The clerk then read a communication from Martin, Griffin &
Co., barristers arid solicitors, of
Vancouver, B.C., acknowledging
with thanks the instructions to
take charge of and carry on the
legal business of the City of
Cumberland.
Another communication was
read from Charles Hibbert Tupper, barrister, Vancouver, B.C.,
who stated that he was under instructions from the Royal Bank
with reference to the drafting of
certain by-laws for the City of
Cumberland, and wanted the city
to supply him with corjies of all
communications the city hail received from Mr. Griffin, as he
wished to tako the matter up
with the Royal Bank and ascertain his position.
Judging from the views expressed hy the aldermen there is
some misunderstanding between
the barristers in question. The
by-laws in question are those
affecting the concrete sidewalk
on.Dunsmuir Avenue.
Alderman Willard explained
that the Mayor had instructed
him while in Vancouver recently
to consult Mr. Griffin, who had
the matter of the by law in hand,
and staled he was only required
to finish up that particular business.
The Mayor stated that thore
was e\ idently some trouble be
tween Tupper and Griffin. It was
a question for the aldermen to
decide as to who was to complete
the by-laws.     It was understood
that Tupper was the legal representative I'or the Royal Bank.
The Council thought that they
had commenced the business with
Tupper and Griffin and would
leave it with the same firm.
It was'moved and carried to
instruct the City Clerk to notify
Mr. Tupper that the Council
could not see any other way out
of the difficulty but to leave the
business with Mr. Griffin. It was
also suggested to consult the head
office of the Royal Bank; explaining the situation and how the
Council stood. Upon being put
to a motion it was carried.
The next question for consideration was the sidewalk in front
of tho post office, a portion of
which had been taken up and re-
laid at a cost of $50.00. It was
moved and carried to thank H. S.
Clements, Esq., M. P., for his
kind service in the matter. After
a motion and an amendment was
put the Council decided to ask
the Government to pay the $50,1
the actual cost of relaying the
cement sidewalk; and point out
to the Government that at the
time the post office sidewalk was
laid by the contractor he was told
by the City Board of Works that
he was a foot too higli at the
east end, the portion in question,
The'Council thought H. S.
Clement, M.P.. was alright, but
the Department had turned the
oity down.
Alderman Beveridge wanted to
know if the Mayor attended the
mass meeting of the late em
ployees, held in the City Hall two
weeks ago, and who ordered the
police to be present.
'{ie Mayor said he had not
attended "the meeting, but when
he was asked for police protection
it was his duty to see they got it,
and so long as he remained mayor
of this town he intended to do
his duty.
Aid. Beveridge stated if there
were any special policemen at
that meeting that had to be paid
he, as a member of the Finance
Committee, would refuse to sign
the bill for their payment.
The Mayor informed him that
he had only ordered the city
police at the meeting, and thought
precaution was better than cure.
The result was a lot of cross-
firing between the Mayor and
Aldermen in which the Mayor
came ont on top.
It was moved and seconded to
open the tenders for the position
of city scavenger. The City
Clerk informed the Council that
there were thirty-five applicants,
twelve of which were property
owners.
Some of the aldermen stated
lhat property holders seeking
otlice were given the preference
in other cities, and thought the
same should be done in this city.
It was finally decided to vote
only on applicants who were property owners, which resulted in
Thomas Conn being appointed as
city scavenger.
the following accounts were
referred to the finance committee;

DELL,
The Police Commissioners held
their regular monthly meeting in
the Council Chambers last Tuesday evening, there being present
Mayor McLeod and Commmission
ersj. P. Watson and Alex. Campbell. The city clerk read the
minutes of the previous meeting,
which were adopted as read.
At the Mayor's request the city
clerk read the following communication received from the general superintendent of the Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir) Ltd.:
To the Police Commissioners of
the City of Cumberland, B.C:
Gentlemen:—We, the Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir) Ltd.,
(property owners and taxpayers
of the City of Cumberland), beg
to call to your attention the fact
that our employees are being
abused and insulted on thestreets
as they pass to and from their
work. Also that respectable
women have been insulted while
going to and from the stores. It
is also very noticable that crowds
of men are permitted to block the
sidewalks and interfere with persons passing along the streets.
This is a very deplorable condition of affairs, and we hereby
demand that the law be enforced
and the proper protection be given
to anyone within the city limits.
Trusting that you will give this
your immediate attention, we are
Respectfully yours,
Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir)
Ltd.,
J. R. Lockaud, Genl, Supt.
The  communication   was  accepted and laid on the table for
discussion.
At this stage of the meeting
the mayor stated that the general
superintendent had informed him
that the Company had decided to
disallow the monthly allowance
of $42.50, which they have been
contributing towards the salary
of Nightwatchman Thomson. The
Superintendent also stated that
they did not require the night-
watchman to visit their works.
If he visited the works from this
date on he would be treated in the
same way as any other outside
individual.
Tho Commissioners thought the
Company should send in a communication to that effect.
The mayor informed them that
the Company would undoubtedly
inform the Council in writing,
and they could deal with it at the
next regular meeting.
' The colliery superintendent's
letter next came up for consideration re protection for the men
who were working in the mines.
The Chief of Police here entered
the meeting, and the Commissioners instructed him to see that law
and order was kept throughout
the city, and to prevent any individuals interfering with the
men at work in the mines either
going or coming from their work.

TRUTH OBJECTIONABLE
TO SOME PEOPLE
The following editorial appeared in the columns of the last
issue of the Labor Advocate, a
weekly paper published in Nanaimo. The editorial makes mention
of the present crisis on Vancouver
Island.
" The Vancouver World stated
last Monday that the miners of
Nanaimo will not declare a sympathetic strike. J. McAllister,
secretary of the U. M. W. A.,
has gone into hysterics over this,
and proceeds to hurl several epithets at the local correspondent
of that great paper. The truth
is evidently very objectionable to
some people. Time will show
that the World is as usual pretty
near correct. The vast majority
of the intelligent miners of this
city cannot be stampeded into a
strike without due consideration,
and a due cause. Mr. McAllister
used up half a column of space in
the Free Press on Tuesday last
without furnishing a single item
of information. Once bit, twice
shy, will be a good motto for the
miners to adopt in future. When
they want better wages or better
conditions they will place more
reliance upon business-like negotiations than upon frothy agitators, who will lead them into a
mire and leave them there. It is
generally conceded that the
miners of Extention and Cumberland were underpaid; it is also
common talk the employers were
willing to grant an advance of
ten per cent had they been approached in a business-like manner, but by mismanagement the
men>have been driven to sign an
agreement for two years without
any material concessions.
"It is quite true that a vote
was not taken at the meeting
last Sunday night. The sentiment was so apparent that the
agitators dared not call for a
vote.
" Before deciding on a strike
the workers of Nanaimo are doing
well to wait until they have something tangible to strike for, and
until they have at least reasonable
hopes for success, and until every
diplomatic means have been exhausted. It is besides a recognized rule of the United Mine
Workers of America to ,use the
strike weapon as a last resort. It
is very doubtful if the recent
action of the men of Cumberland
and Extension will be endorsed
at headquarters. At the same
time two wrongs do not make a
right. We cannot find any reasonable excuse for the stubbornness of the employers in refusing
employment to the two men who
caused all the trouble, even if
they are not perfect specimens of
manhood. Both employers and
employees should be more anxious
to find points upon which to agree
and not allow trivialties to affect
their harmonious relations."
HON. T. TAYLOR
One Hundred Quests Partake of
Sumptuous Banquet in the
Union Hotel.
A number of men anxious to
secure work arrived by last Tuesday's boat. The local union
officials, upon finding that such
was the case, rounded some of
them up and paid their transportation to and from the city.
A few of them evidently thought
it was no use to go back where
they came from and secured
work at Union Bay under the
Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir)
Ltd. With a few more crowds
arriving and the officials of the
union adopting the same course
they will soon be ready for an
assignment. It would be well for
the miners who intend to continue
on holiday to secure their winter's
supply before the local funds are
exhausted. We see no signs of
any coming from the international, and snow is not very far
away.

The banquet given in honor of
Hon. Thos. Taylor, M.P.P., Minister of Public Works, on his recent visit to Cumberland, was a
huge success. Mr. and Mrs. J.
N. McLeod, of the Union Hotel,
had their spacious dining room
beautifully decorated with flowers and bunting for the occasion.
The tables were filled with all the
most luxurious viands,
The Mayor, who is proprietor
of the Union Hotel, had attended
to every detail, and saw that
everyone present enjoyed themselves. Included in the Hon.
Thos. Taylor's party were Messrs.
L. A. Manley, Arthur F. Gan-
well, H. K. Anstre, W. E. Cath-
els, Andrew McMurtrie, and J.
Wilmshurst, the road superintendent for the district.
About one hundred guests sat
down to the sumptuous repast.
Hon. Thos. Taylor occupied the
head of -he tables, with D. R
MacDonald, the president of the
Conservative Association, at his
left hand, who acted as chairman
for the evening's entertainment.
After partaking of the good
things supplied for the occasion,
which was a sample of the magnificent style the Union Hotel has
in catering to banquets, Mr.
D. R. McDonald, the chairman
for the evening, proposed a toast
to the King, responded to by
singing "God save the King.
Toast to the President of the
United States, responded to by
singing "StarSpangled Banner."
Toast to the Dominion Government responded to by F. J. Dalby
collector of customs at Cumberland, in his usual style.
"The Provincial Government,"
responded to by Hon. Thomas
Taylor, who spoke at some length
on the beauties of Vancouver
Island and said he was highly
satisfied with his tour of inspection and saw remarkable progress,
He had a kindly feeling towards
Mr. Robert Grant sr., and missed
his presence on the floor of the
House, but thought the Comox
district was not badly neglected.
He spoke in glowing terms of
the services the country were
receiving from Premier Borden,
one of the empire's greatest
statesmen, also Premier McBride,
one of Canada's noblemen, and
hoped that they may be spared
Mth long life and continue their
good work. Mr. Taylor made
special mention of the services
the district were receiving from
J. Wilmshurst the road superintendent, who had made remarkable improvements in the roads.
Mr. Taylor was evidently delight-
with the scenic beauty of the
trip.
"The City of Cumberland,"
responded to by Mayor J. N. Mc
Leod. He said he had much
pleasure in giving the Minister of
Public Works a hearty welcome
to Cumberland and would like to
see him come along a little often-
er. The Mayor anticipated a
great future for the city with the
approaching railroads. Cumberland was. destined to go ahead
and would grow.
" The Conservative Association," responded to by President
McDonald, who said that the
membership were continually on
the increase, and in the event of
an election at any time the Conservative would be a sure winner.
' 'TheBoard of Trade,'' responded to by W. E. Lawrence, vice-
president, who made some very
appropriate remarks as to Cum-
land and its progress. He also
outlined what the city wanted in
the shape of railroads.
"The Highways," responded
to by T. E, Bate, Esq., who said:

and only by good government
that we are able to obtain such

make a beautiful, direct and
scenic route to Strathcona Park.
He contended a direct road should
be built from Union Hay through
Cumberland to headquarters and
on to Strathcona Park, and allow
the immense traffic of lhe near

tribute to the ladies, and especially to the mothers of the Dominion.
"Toast to Host and Hostess,"
responded to by Mayor McLeod,
who wished to thank those present on behalf of Mrs. McLeod
and himself.
Violin solos, songs, speeches

The room was clearing, but oniy
slowly, and unable to stand the strain
of watting alone In i Mu dark with
lliat figure on the bed, the Major
walked slowly across towards the window, reeling l'i-s way very carefully
his hands stretched out before him,
along the wall.
Ami then suddenly he gave a littlo
exclamation. His fingers had touched tbe swLteh of an electric light and
involuntarily hi* hud pressed it.
lu , second the room was filled
with radiance,
Taken by surprise, Easton waited
breathless for the explosion, which
he felt mus'. follow. Aud then he
smiled. That's one advantage of
electric light, he thought. And then,
but why was the gas turned on lf
there is electric light in the room'.
And be walked quietly to the bed.
And theu indeed his coolness did
(or a moment desert him quite; and
he started back white.and trembling,
a cry rising to his lips.
Kor the figure on the bed, the face

Yes, It was the fair one of the sisters who lay there- cold and rigid,
gazing up at the ceiling with dark,

And Bhe sang so prettily only an
hour or two ago, was the thought that
crossed his brain, as his presence of
mind returned to him, and he bent
gently over the still form. Poor little girl!     But. she ls dead, quite dead.
Ves, there was uo doubt of that. A
moment's examination convinced hlju
that il had been at least mauy minutes

last, and he stood for a seeond with

Then he looked up at last, a sudden
No one replied, however, and a hasty
search through the other rooms revealed the fact that, save for tue t.vo

Cloa. 5>   Lyon of Toronto, the new
Canadian golf champion,  has had a
remarkable career lu tho  world of
['port, having won   high   renown   lul
cilcUet as well as In golfing circle-!.]
a feat which is seldom accomplished,
for the style of swing, required tori
success with Iha bat  is seldom conducive to proficiency  with  rhe cluh. j
On oix previous occasions Lyon has
been amateur ohnmplou of Cauada—
in   18H8,   1800,   1803,   lfll)5,   1900  and j
i.'OT.    As the winner of the champ*,
lonshlp three    years    in    succession,
Lyon   won   outright   the   Aberdeen
trophy,     in moi ami again f» 1910
he was runner up for the amateur
! championship! being also runner up
I for the open championship iu the lat-
i ter  year.      lit   1004,  Lyon, was  the
Olympic champion al St. Louis,    lie
j bus had considerable BUOCess. too, In
i (ho English   amateur   championship.
| He got :s far us the fourth round In
I the competition at I'rostwiek, in 1906,
I when he was knocked out nn the last
I green by the late Oeorge Wlllrle. In
! the  1908 championship at  Batldwioh
■ he completed five rounds of the conw
i petition.
Lyon's cricketing featq, nlso, nre no
] less remarkable. He holds the Can*

I The veteran athlete has also ntinier*

It Is seventeen years since tho

Where Ignorance is Bliss
A student of the works of English
j novelists has declared thai Scotland
j is still an unknown land to most of
1 them. They make a mess of It when
i thoy attempt the dialect or introduce
i allusions (sociitl. topical, general!
i about what they are slill pleased to
i term the land o' cakes.
One, for example represented n
' character as singing a Jacobite song
and accompanying himself on the bagpipes, Another introduced an organ
(always called; of courso, a klst o'
whistles) into a Free Kirk within ten
years of the Disruption of lS4;i. whilst
; a third required several hours to transport his hero from Edinburgh to Lolth.

I Mr. Collins suffered for twenty-five

satisfactory treatment until lie began
the use of Dr. Chase's Nerve l-'ood

Nerve Food forms new blood and restores the exhausted nervous system,
the Kldney-Uver Pills invigorate the
action of kidneys, liver and bowels.
Mr. W. T. Collins, Morpeth, Out.,
writes: "It affords me pleasure to

Dr. Chases' medicines—the Nerve

To Bar Suffragettes
The Intimation of the English' suffragettes that they muy eome to Canada and Inaugurate here praotloes similar to those that in the Old Country
have annoyed their opponents without
furthering tholr own cause, hns evidently led our Federal (lovernment to
coupler the proposed Invasion. Judging trom tho reports from Ottawa, announcing that the suffragettes will be
barred out as undesirables.
The Immigration laws as well as tbe
publio domain, fall within the Jurisdiction of the Department of the Interior, and lt, therefore will be the
officers of this Department who wlll
have to stand on the wharves of our
Atlantic ports and along our southern
frontier and turn bnck the militant
advocates of "votes for women."
Possibly a suffragette with a record
—o»e who has rendered tho cause distinguished service by smashing windows or attempting arson, who has
been In courts and possibly In prison
and who has suffered martyrdom hy
refusing to enl—possibly such a person might be held to come within the
meaning of the term 'undesirable,' but
before being absolutely certain upon
that point It would be well to wait
and hear what the courts have to
Bay abont It, for it Is more than likely
that, lf an attempt is made to deport
a suffragette on this ground, the case
wlll get Into the courts before lt Is
disposed of; and many of these acts
of Parliament are ao severely handled
by the courts tbat they scarcely know
themselves when the match ll eon-
j eluded.
Wanted—Flat for manufacturer,
nbout  10 leet long and 411 feet wide.
Apartments wanted — Hod-Sitting
room wanted by gentleman with folding doors.
Room wanted by a student with
light and heat.
Rooms wanted (.11 by young couple
with  both  kinds of gaa.
Wanted—Oood milch eow by an elderly indy with short horns.

HARD   TO SEE
Even When the Facti are Plain
It is curious how people will refuse
to believe what one can clearly see.
Tell the average man or woman
that fhe slow hut cumulative poisonous effect of caffeine—the alkaloid In
tea and coffee—tends to weaken the
heart, upset tho nervous system and
cause Indigestion, and they may laugh
at you If they don't know tho facts.
Prove it by science or by practical
demonstration In the recovery of tea
and coffee drinkers from the above con*
ditions, and a large per cent of the
human family will shrug their shoulders, take Bome drugs and—keep on
drinking tea or coffee.
"Coffee never agreed with me nor
with several membera of our household," writes a lady. "It enervates,
depresses and creates a feeling of
languor and heaviness, Tt was only
by leaving off coffee and using Postum that we discovered the cause midway out of these Nis.
"The only reason, I am sure, why
Postum Is not used altogether to the
exclusion of ordinary coffee Is, many
persons do not know and do not seem
willing to learn the facts and how
to prepare this nutritive beverage.
There's only ono way—according to
directlona—boll It fully 14 minutes.
Then lt is delicious." Name given

The  Last of the   Mona   Liaa
Tho following from the Paris correspondent or "Truth" throws au interesting light on the scandal of the
Louvre—tlio loss of Mona  Lisa.
I think I hnve at last learned the
truth as to the fate of the Gloncondo,
It is melancholy news: 'lasciato ognl
spernnza.' We shall never again see
Leonardo da Vinci's famous picture.
One might wish It had boon stolon for
then there would have boen Ippe for
Its reappearance. Tho fact is, I
learn, that It never left the Louvre;
it perished thore. A photographer's
employee, wishing to avenge himself
on tho world at largo tor what he
thought his wrongful dismissal, imagined n |«iece of sabotage worthy of
a twentieth century Horostrates; ho
spread the contents of a phial of sulphuric acid over the portrait of Mona
Lisa.
Prom another source I have heard
further particulars. I do not vouch
for them with tho samo certainty but
regard them, nevertheless, aa highly
probable. The vitriol outrage on the
Gioconda was committed a year or
two beforo (he world learnt of the

bee.%stolen was, in faet, a copy. As
long as there was any hope of restoring the original fhe substitute was
left In the familiar frame under a
glass pane. This piece of plate glass
was Inserted a year or two bofore tho
theft. When all hopes of restoring
tho original were given up, and when
ecr.taln visitors were beginning to
whisper tbeir doubts about the pic-
ture under the glazed frame the substitute was takon out and very likely
thrown Into the fire. Posylbly tho
original panel, a worthless piece of
wood, met the same fate.

The editor  does  not  hold   himself  responsible  for   views  expressed  by
orrespondents.
What the Editor has to say.
Tnu local agitators, before commencing this struggle,
i-hould bave accepted a piece of good advice, and tbat is " To
begin nothing without considering what the end may be" No;
but on the contrary, tbey asked the men to cease work without
considering what would he the result. Their cry then was
" take a holiday, and everything will come out alright," But
when a man quits work and leaves himself nntl family defenceless, with a cold and disagreeable winter staring tbem in the
lace, he must consider what the end may be. Their perceptibility was not keen enough; they did not look forward to the
time to come—for come it will—when these poor innocent individuals will be asked to vacate their homes. Up to the present time no arrangements have been made to house them. You
cannot blame the Company; no corporation is going to bend to
tin injustice from the hands of a few agitators who realizt; they
have hopelessly failed to make good, or considered what the
' eud may be.
We say to those who are at work—stick to it. Do not
amid the excitement of tbese times drop yonr employment,
hoping that something better will turn up. He who gives up
work now, whether he be miner or engineer, will probably give
it up for starvation.
It is a great mistake when an organization says to a body
of men—you must stop work—without providing for their support, because some individual may have been badly treated.
Furthermore a man has a right to resign bis position and say-
to the management, I decline to work for you any longer. But
he has no right to linger around the roads to intimidate the
man who comes to take his place. He may quit his position
und become a gentleman, but when he interferes with his
successor he becomes a criminal and deserves nothing better
than thin soup in a tin bowl in New Westminster penitentiary.
You are a free man; do not let any man or body of men tell
you where you shall work or where you shall not work, when
you shall work or when you shall not work. Other industries
will open up for tbose who are taking a vacation, for the outside door of this island bas not been opened yet, there is plenty
of room for all of us. We are not a bit scared. The w heels of
industry will revolve soon. The storm will hush. Your first
step towards light and betterment of conditions will be an
assertion of your individual independence from the dictation ol
your fellow workman. What we want to declare is mutual
interdependence of labour and capital.
What a tremendous presumption the few remaining members of U. M. W. of A. must have had when they made an
attempt to stop the local teamsters from hauling coal by writing them a letter and requesting them to ceast delivering coal.
We are glad to know they studied their own individual interest
first and made the U.M. IV, (if A. a second consideration, Had
the miners of th'S city adopted the same course six weeks age
as the teamsters of today their position would have been a
great deal better. Furthermore, do the few agitators of thii-
place, who refrain from work on their own accord, think that
the citizens of this place are going without coal when there i.^
plenty of it to be bad at the local mines. Through theit
ignorance they must place a very high vulue on their influence.

The change of dietary that conies
with spring and summer has tho effect
in weak stomachs of setting up in-
llammatlon, resulting in dysentery and
cholera morbus. The abnormal condition will continue if not attended to

the Inflammation and restores the organs to healthy actlou.

of Samui i de Champlaln, written
about 1698.
Of course, such a treasure is beyond price hm I cannot help wishing
that the Canadian Government could
in sonic fair manner bee ime possessed of this diary, written by the real
father uf Canada. ll is true there is
not much of importance to Cauada Itself iu this particular nook, which
contains a narrative of Champlalu's
work in, nnd Impressions of the West
Indies, Mexico, and Central America.
He was al Panama at ouo time
ami then ami there conceived the Idea
that a ship canal across the IsLhmus
would greatly facilitate the operations
of the world's commerce, ami he says
in this diary, the voyage to the Soulh
Sea would lie shortened by more than
fifteen hundred leagues.
it must he allowed to be a remnrk-
able thing that Champhin should
have suggested such a thing as lhe
Panama Canal some three hundred
and fifteen years beforo lt was accomplished. Men of great deeds often
are men or great vision, and Champ-
Iain's place is amogn the great men
of the world's history,
In .Inly and August. 1615, he was
with a good deal of weariness of soul
marking out with hts own feet the
subsequent route of another great canal, wliich I expect to live to see completed some of these years. It was
the regular road from Georgian Bay
to Montreal in those days, as it may
be again some da£, when the Georgian Bay Canal has been completed,
It was probably the tales of copper to be had on the shores of the
lakes which caused Champlaln to
make thu choice he did between the
offers of the Montagnals to guide him
to Hudson Bay, and the desires of the
llurons to show him the waters of
ihe Great Lakes. lie believed evidently in a way home to France by
way of Hudson Bay, and was extremely anxious to visit the Arctic waters.
His dreams are coming true at
last. The Hudson Bay Railway is
actually under contract, the Panama

the Georgian Bay Canal is badly needed, and therefore will be built. Who

But notice, Champlaln's theory,
though It was long in coming to frui^t-

Facts  About  Penny   Postage
England was the first country to
introduce penny postage for domestic
letters. Sir Rowland Hill was the
author of the penny-post system,
which soon spread to other countries,
as he was also the originator of the
money order Bystem and post-office
savings banks. The uniform rate of
one penny per letter for half an ounce
weight was put luto effect ln 1840.
Before lhat lime postage rates In England had varied with the distance, except that in In 1839 a trial had heen
given of a uniform rate of four pence
per letter. Stamped covers were introduced in 1840. and half-penny postal cards were issued ln 1870. Street
letter boxes were first used ln England in 18!>n.
ln the United.States the post- office department was much slower In
attaining domestic pqnr#v or two-cent
postage. In 1845 the postage rate
on letters wa.s from live to ten cents,
according to distance, and It was not
until 1855 that the rate was reduced
to three cents for distances under
3,000 miles. A uniform three-cent
rate was adopted in 1863, and a two-
cent rate In 1875. One of tho first
steps toward an International penny
post was taken when tho United
States entered into agreements with
Canada and .Mexico whereby the two-
cent letter rate was made to apply to
thoso countries, Cuba, Panama and
the city of Shanghai, China, and later
Grent Britain and Germany, now havo
postal conventions wilh (lm United
States providing for a letter rato of
two cents per ounce. There has
been a great deal of agitation for a
one-cent loter rate in tho United
Stales, of late years, hut In most respects the United States lags behind
European nations In the matter of
postal reforms. At the present time
the postage rate on parcels from any
point In the United States to Japan
China, Austria, France. Germany,
Great Britain, Sweden and other foreign countries is twelve cents per
pound while the rate ls slxteon cents
per pound for a parcel mailed and delivered in tho same city of the United
States.
While Switzerland has taken the
lead ln the movoment for a worljl penny postage it is expected that tho
chambers of commerce of all the leading nations will fall in behind nnd
will bring great influence to boar on
tho coming conference of the Universal Postal Union.
