from Ottawa over the Grand

Ik' expressed satisfaction with
fie public works for his large

§56,400 for the extension of
Government telegraphs on Van-
. Island, which 5wlll practically
link up the whole of the Island
with the exception of the stretch
between Nootka Sound and Cape
Scott, a distance which is so
sparsely settled as not to warrant
the expenditure of linking up
that section. The extensions of
the telegraph system on Vancouver Island authorized will cost
•>64,001, and in other parts of the
constituency about $10,000

DENOUNCES GENERAL
STRIKE
In reporting' the strnke convention in Vancouver, Wednesday' s Vancouver Province says:
Mr. Frank Farrington was accorded the privilege of the floor,
and in one of the most convincing
speeches that has so far been
made, he denounced the general
strike proposition. Speaking as
the representative there of the
Mine Workers' International
Union, he said that he had'opposed the previous attempt to induce a general strike, and he had
no reason to change his position.
As the representative of 400,000
mine workers in every part of
the Unitied States and Canada,
he had responsibilities towards
the 398,000 who were not resid-
ingon the island, which compelled
him to take the wider view. He
failed to see what benefit a general strike in the province would
bring to the miners on the island
unless the strikebreakers could
be persuaded to take part, which
was not likely. Furthermore, as
it was an honorable agreement
the striking miners were seeking,
what kind of consistency was
there in asking members of other
organizations as well as those of
their own who were working
under such agreements, to break
them ■ in order to assist in - the
making of another.
NO. 6 NINE
BREAKS RECORD
The Daily Output of Cumberland
Mines will Average
3,500 Tons.
No. 6 mine on Thursday put
all previous records in the shade
by hoisting 500 tons in 8 hours,
No. 4 hovers around the 1.000
ton mark, No. 5 generally goes
over 1,000 tons per day while
No. 7 hoists between 700 and
800 tons per day, leaving No. 8
a new mine, out of the question.
The daily output for the Cumberland mines when working is
not far off 3500 tons per day With
a generous supply of shipping it
is easily seen what that means
for this city.
WEED INSPECTORS
All Provincial Constables and
Forest Guards have again been {
appointed as agents for thei
Department towards the en-j
forcemerit of the provisions of
the Noxious Weeds Act. In
addition, Noxious Weed Inspectors have been appointed in different districts of the Province,
whose duties will be to carefully
go over their districts, see that
farmers and land owners are
taking the necessary steps to
destroy the weeds growing on
their lands, and in the event of
non-compliance with notices
server] on them, to institute proceedings against them.
The department is determined
to use every legitimate effort to
have the provisions cf the Act
strictly enforced and we look for
the whole-hearted co-operation
of the farmers themselves in
this most important matter.

link up the wl'ole of the Island
with the exception of the stretch
between Nootka Sound and Cape

NEW MAPS
Three new Ve-emptors maps
covering the Nechaco, Chilcoten
and North Thompson districts,
have just been issued by the Surveys Branch of the Department
of Lands. These maps form part
of'a series of ten covering approximately 100,000 square miles of
land, .and . will prove of great
assistance to intending prc-emp-
tors. . They show the lands surveyed to date in the sections covered, the tracts available for preemption being shown in pink,"
while those taken up are shown
in white. The surveyed areas
shown in pink and the unsurveyed
land shown in same color
can be pre-empted at the office
of the Government Agent of the
land-recording division in which
it is situated It is necessary to
stake the unsurveyed land and
describe it according to metes and
bounds in the application. The
surveyed tracts can be applied
for without staking, being described in application by their
number.
Maps have already been issued
in this series showing the lands
for pre-emption in the Fort
George and Tete Jaune districts.
It was in these districts that 80,"
000 acres was opened to .preemption last month, and over
three quarters of the land remains
open. The new maps cover the
areas adjoining that embraced in
previous ones; the whole series
are drawn to connect with each
other.
The Nechaco sheet shows the
territory westward of the Fort
George district extending,to the
Hazelton division and embraces
the great interior lake basin, and
the Nechaco, Endako and other
fertile, valleys. The North Thompson sheet ajiows the* land adjoining the C.' k.P. Rly, juid extends
northward from ihe railway belt
to the territory embraced.in the
maps previously published. It
includes the Canem Lake, Bridge
Lake and Bonaparte districts of
eastern Lillooet and the Clearwater, Barriere and Adards Lake
districts, other areas in which
settlement is taking place. The
Chilcoten sheet covers the northern Lillooet and southern Cariboo
plateaux and valleys. Another
map, the Quesnel sheet, is being
completed, which will cover the
territory between that embraced
in the Chilcoten and North
Thompson sheets.
The series of pre-emptors maps
together with the series of pamphlets published by the Department of Lands describing in detail the topographic and other
features of the Fort George, Fort
Fraser, Skeena, Cariboo and
Peace River Land Recording divisions, will prove of great value
to intending settlers.

There can hardly be any room for thinking t0 ')e a man

Conservative mayority may not be a large one J
but governments have lived before now with a
smaller majority than the Roblin Ministry is likely

feeling" to think of the pains some people take to
gather the smallest item of " news." They leave
their own garden to grow full of weeds while the;'
are trying to hold up before everybody the few
they pull from their neighbour's. They do everything but mind their own business. They never
speak of their own faults or follies. No, indeed;
by the time the whole town is criticised and judgement pronounced, they have not a moment left to
do more than congratulate themselves on their
good works.

Some Cold Facts.
The weekly country paper has as definite
excuse for being in the world as can be furnished
by the city dailies. Such a publication is not only
a business guide, but is a pulpit of morals; it is
a kind of public rostrum where the affairs of the
district are considered; It is the supervisor of
streets and roads; it is a social friend, a promoter
of friendship and goodwill. Edited by a broad and
just man, such a publication so treats the different
sects that they realize their brotherhood and
become in reality what they are pictured in print.
The town weekly dare not be Presbyterian, or
Methodist, or Anglican, but it must select the
valuable in each church and thus it becomes a
discord. It binds those whom theology would
often separate. Even the so-called matters of a
village or incorporated town are small only to
up the budget of satisfied ones, he is clown and [th0se whose hearts are too full of self interest. It

PLEDGES COVENANTERS
Drumbeg, Ireland, July 13—
The Orangemen's demonstration
here today culminated in a scene
of immense enthusiasm around
the platform, where Sir Edward
Carson, Bible in hand, pledged
the covenanters never to surrender to coercion; to remain loyal
to thc throne, and never waver
in their support of their leaders
in the fight against Home Rule.
Sir Edward Carson in a speech
which evoked tremendous enthusiasm, served notice on the
British Government that unless
it was prepared to leave Ulster
alone it would very shortly find
the Ulstermen recognizing no
government except the provisional goverment of Ulster. He said
he had been given authority to
act, and if necessary that, meant
that he was to exercise his powers
without regard to the consequences to himself. The Ulstermen,
he added, were not going to give
way and were hound to win because God would defend the
right.
Says a writer in a contemporary
"Don't live in a house-boat during a flood." And yet Noah
always declared that he owed his
life to having done so.

'HE recent advance in the science of the reproduction
of sound  waves has been so revolutionary that you
..   cannot  possibly  realize the  true musical  quality of
these late models of the Columbia until you have heard one
of them.
There is a Columbia that conforms to every requirement of
cost or surrounding. Between $25 and $650, the price you
wish t<j pay. is matched by an instrument that gives you the
money's worth, even if measured by its intrinsic value.
Measured by its musical quality, and its capacity for bringing

PRAYER OF THE SHORN
LAMB
Prithee gentle stranger—or if,
perhaps, thou art my friend-
Take what 1 say in kindliness; I
mean not to offend.
But if,  perchance, thou   hast a
plan that only doth entail
One hundred bucks to    yield a
million profit without fail;
Or if, perhaps,  thou hast some
simple little scheme
By which to bring me fortune
far beyond my wildest dream—
.Some   inside   information of a
confidential deal
That means much easy money ih
say, cotton, wheat or steel;
Or dost thou merely wish to give
me free some standard books;
To stake me to  a gratis oceon
voyage, *ria Cook's;
To sell   nay, give me a dime a
share some oil-land stock;
Or fine suburban lot for naught,
that's worth a city block;
Convey tome an interest in some
wondrous patent new,
For say, perhaps, a measly little
dollar bill or two
Then let me tell thee ere thou
dost attempt one word to say,
'Tis useless! So unfold no tale,
but get thee on thy way!
I've played the  string,  nor left
i one easy means to wealth untried
; But where the meanest low-brow
might have cashed, there have
I died.
1 grant thy scheme is mighty
good, original and new;
! That truly thou dost honor me by
thy selection, too.
And, yet, I also know that if gold
nuggets fell like hail,
IM probably be doing time within
some county jail!
To me all things look good; to
everyone I hark.
I  am  the  real soft thing—the
ever-ready easy mark.
So go thy way and tempt me not
but be content to let
Me plug along and earn my little
wage by honest sweat.
1 seek not affluence, nor yet some!
easy road to fame;
I want no sinecure, nor care to
court the Fickle Dame.
i
I only ask, dear friend, this little
boon; to work my own
Salvation, remain a hired man,
and   to be let alone,

FOSTER SPEAKS
TO DELEGATES
Says That Persuasive and the
Pleading Method* Have
Failed.
Vancouver, July 13-Delegates
from kbpr unions in every part
of the^rovince assembled in the
Labor temple this morning in
reponse to a call for a special
convention by the executive of
the Provincial Federation of
Labor. Over.sixty are representing unions in the cities of Victoria, New Westminster Vancouver
and forty others from other Island
and interior points.
The convention was called to
order by President Watchman,
who introduced Mr. Robert Foster, president of District 28 of
the United Mine Workers of
America to explain why the call
for a special convention was
issued. ■"
Mr. Foster stated that the
miners now on strike on the
Island wereprimari!}' responsible
for the call, as they were now
satisfied that a change of policy
was needed in the methods to be
adopted to bring this strike and
consequent troubles to a finish.
Persuasion and pleading methods had, he stated, utterly failed
to produce anything approaching
a solution, and the miners desired
to consult the members of other
organizations in the province
with a view to taking some common action.
President . Foster reveiwed
shortly the history of the miner's
strike, but dealt principally with
negotiations and communications
which have been passing between
government and union offices
with a view to settlement.
He declared that no settlement
was possible which would compel
the striking miners to work
alongside of incompetent men,
who in hundreds of cases were
unable to read or understand
the regulations and notices. He
maintained that the letter and
the spirit of the Coal Mine'
Regulation Act was being violated
wholesale and that the lives and
limbs of the miners would be
hourly endangered if they were
to return to work under prevailing conditions.
Dealing with the Asiatic side
of the question, Mr. Fosler stat-
: ed that the Mine Worker's Union
was prepared to accept Asiatics
as members, if competent, but
that question of competency did
not now trouble the mine mana-
ager and that at Cumberland 200
per cent more Asiatics were now
employed than at the commencement of the trouble, He further
pointed out that there were no
white firemen empolyed any-'
where at the mining camps on
th& Island, and as law requires
a candidate for an engineer's
certificate to have six month's
experience as a fireman and no
such positions were open to white
men, that the logical result would
be Asiatic engineers in the near
future, unless. conditions were
altered.
President Fosterf urther claimed that there were at least six
men being retained in jail at
New Westminster whose time,
according to sentence, had now
expired, and that letters to the
Attorney-General of the province
had failed to produce satisfactory
replies. In regard to conditions
even now at Nanaimo he said that
no striker was allowed to stand
anywhere on the public street
when the strikebreakers were
coming from work.
Appealing to the convention in
a general way for assitance, he
indicated that what they were
now looking for was not new
laws, as they had been unable to
enforce what they had, but as
the workers comprised 80 per
cent, of the voters of the province, that combined action
should be taken at the ballot box
in order to ensure a satisfactory
administration. Concluding, he
offered this as a possible remedy
for existing conditions arid stated
stated that in calling for a special
convention, the object aimed at
was to devise ways and means of
taking joint action throughout
the province in this direction.
The convention is in session
again this afternoon, when the
matter referred to by Mr, Foster
will be under general discussion.
Vice-President Bancroft of the
Trades and Labor Congress of
Canada, was an interested listen-
this morning and he will address
the convention at a later session.
