It Is sup] oil that Mr. Ilourassa intended to discuss some of Ihenc questions to have set forth his views on
certain matters of policy. Why should
the Liberal party not give him n hearing ?      Arc   they   afraid   lo   have   these
mattera  exposed  and  dtsouMM   before
the rank and Ule of the DB0ple of Quebec. Perhups there Is some reason for
this rear, ror on more than one occasion
the Quebec electorate bave been round
read*.* to condemn a popular favorite
and Premier when they round lhat he
had abused their eonHilonce. Mr. Mer-
cler was a few vears ago a more tMipn-
lar idol In Quebec than Sir Wilfrid
Laurler Is today, but his majority was
swept away within a few months after
the exposure ot ihe Bale des Cbalettrs
scandal and other similar transactions
of that date. Komembranoe of these
matters may have inspired the effort to
prevent   Mr.  Ilourassa front speaking.
Hut the Liberals and their press over
the country admit tbat tlie rotten .'Kit
policy Ib short sighted. Mr. Bourassa
la not a man to be suppressed by any
such tactics . He will yet be heard In
Quebec '*lty, and can easily rommand a
bearing In other parts of the Province.
He   Is   today  with   the  exception ol   Sir
Wilfrid  Laurler, the  most    promiotnl

On June *iSth of tblB year, as reported in The Dally Canadian of that date,
a gentleman describing himself as the
Rev. J. L,. Iirooks, of Llngfleld, Surrey.

with a local real estate firm on a
scheme for colonization.
Friday night  a party or tour arrived
In    Nelaon;     Saturday    night    George
Wood,   late  |H)stmaster  ol  Ayton,   Berwickshire,   arrived,   and   lust   night six
more came, all Scotchmen.    They have
applied lo F. 1.. Hammond, or the Kootenay   Orchard Association,  lor the tul-
tllmeut of the terms of a contract signed   on  his   behalf  by  Mr.   Iirooks   who
styles hlmscll agent for Mr. Hammond.
The  men  arc  armed  with   many  documents furnished to them by the British

tract ot uncleared land at $75 per acre,
the "usual price" being represented as
$100. und the purchaso ot tickets tor the
trip   through   tbe   society.     They   were
assured lhal Mr. Hammond would meet
them In Nelson, would give them free
board nnd lodging for a few days and
then employ them on a model farm at
$3 per day.
After hearing the visitors' Btory a
representative ot The Canadian called
on Mr. Hammond. Ho was shown all
the correspondence hy letter and tele
gran wllh Mr. nrooks and Mr. Stark.
Fortunately tor Mr. Hammond all his
letters and wlreB are specifically acknowledged by tho recipients. The correspondence shows, by the admission or
Messrs. Brooks and Stark, that Mr.
Hammond never appointed either or
them his agent for any purpose, thai
ho expressly and repeatedly repudiated
any guarantee of work at $:i or at any
figure, that he repeatedly protested
against Ihe statements In their circular
which he told them wore misleading,
and finally on July 13th wrote Imth or
them lhat because ot their failure to
correct such misstatements ho could
have no further dealings with them.
The only result of ull bts protests was
the issue ol a new circular In u differ
ent  color, guaranteeing
$2 to $3."

communication with the Edinburgh
agent of the society up to the day of
his departure, sailed on Aug. 3rd, three
clear days after Mr. Brooks admits having received Mr. Hammond's letter repudiating the undertaking given on his
behalf without his authority.
Mr. Hammond Informs The Canadian
lhat he made not even a verbal agreement with Mr. Brooks other than he
has been prepared to give to any one.
that he will reserve land If purchasers
are found for them. He also says thai
no part of any money deposited In Britain as payment on account has ever
reached his offlce.
There are now eleven Scotsmen In
Nelson including Mr. Wood and William Ward, of Edinburgh. They are Indignant at the deception practised upon
them but all exonerate Mr. Hammond
from any blame in the matter.
The whole Incident Is extremely regrettable. Kootenay wants settlers of
the very class that the recent arrivals
belong to. Their experience will not
be encouraging to others, the report of
It may hare the effect of administering
a "black eye" to Nelson. But Nelson
can better afford such "black eyes" than
resting under the least suspicion or col-
luslon with, or condoning or, fraud. The
Incident further illustrates the folly of
clergymen, most of whom are no doubt
entirely honest and well meaning, lending their names to promotion schemes
of whose merits they can know nothing.
Mr. Hammond and the party of Scotsmen declare their Intention of seeking
legal redress from Messrs. Brooks and

the months of April, May and June.
The upward tendency In wages as
shown by the table haa been more pronounced during the present spring

period of any previous year of which a
statistical record has been kept In Canada, with the single exception of that
ot 1903 when the number of Increases
was greater, although the number ol
employees affected was not so large as
In the spring quarter of 1907. The
changes reported during April, May and
June last were 117 In number; of these
these 104 were In the nature of Increases of wages, and two were

New York, Aug. 19.���The World today says: At six o'clock last evening,
an Immense meteor, apparently about
seventy-five feet In circumference, fell
Into the sea about half a mile off the
Narragansett lighthouse, L. I. At first
a roar was heard and an Instant later
a great stream of fire seemed to cone
down from the clouds, and plunged into
the sea. The meteor felt into the water
with the noise of a mighty boiler letting
off steam. Great waves rolled up upon
tbe beach, part of the bathing pavillion
was washed away, along with it several
fishermen's huts. Mush damage was
done to property abutting the water
front. Some persons thought the strange
Incident marked the end of the world.
Even the old fishermen, used as they
are to face death on the sea, were terrified, and not for a moment did the excitement quiet down. Captain George
Green, who was in command of a veasel
In St. Pierre, when Mont Pelee blew Its
head off and destroyed that city, was
sitting on the water front when the
meteor fell. He declared nothing had
ever frightened him more except the
Mont Pelee disaster. The meteor apparently fell vertically. From the time
the noise was flrst heard until lt plunged Into the sea was probably three
quarters of a minute. After the disturbance had subsided hundreds ot dead
fish were found along tlfe shore, these
were gathered up by boys and peddled
out by them.
Montreal, Aug. 19.���Before a large
crowd of supporters of both teams the
Shamrocks and Nationals met In a
schedule game Saturday afternoon.
Shamrocks won by the score of 9 to 2.
Though the Shamrocks were in the
lead most of the time, the game was an
Interesting one, aa It was by no means
a runaway affair. In the play the teams
seemed pretty evenly matched, the fast
Nationals otten outrunning their opponents with ense. Where the French
Canadians fell down was In their home
division. They did not seem to be able
to get the ball In close enough to shoot.
Uauthler was the only man who kept
digging his way through the green jerseys. He made his way in frequently,
but lucked support. The National defence put up a g. .nl game, but in the
early part of the game they were unable
to keep out the tricky Shamrock players
and the Irishmen succeeded lu grabbing
half a dozen counters In the llrst three
quarters.    The Shamrocks   defence, on

Samuel Sheldon, of the Brooklyn Polytechnic Institute, went to Bristol-Notch
today to investigate the fall of an unusually large meteor, which was observed by many people throughout Addison Sunday morning. Those who saw

and size. The effect of \ta fall was like
that ot an earthquake, the country within several miles of the scene of Its landing experienced shocks which caused
damage to several houses.

Monday, August  19, 1907.
There could be no higher tribute paid
to the efficiency and honest; ol* lhe administration of British Columbia Hum
the present absolute silence of the op
positiou. It is all the more remarkable
because during tlie last campaign the
battle was waged all along the line.
Every department or the government
fiercely assailed, and every minister
was accused of both dishonesty ami incapacity. The last echo ot tin..-.- crlea
was the little shout of triumph over
was fiercely assailed, and every mlniuter
libel against the Vancouver World lor
tbe one definite charge of corruption
made. Our local contemporary has. indeed, been fair enough to quote the -Mail
and Empire's reference to the case to
which the conclusion is that neither
Mr. Green nor Mr. McKay was guilty ol
any dishonorable act, but at the WOEBI
of an Indscretlon. it is rather hard on
individuals that such an indiscretion
should be tbe occasion tor a charge ol
accepting a bribe, even il protected by
an Interrogation mark. Hut probabl]
on the whole it ls well that a wide lib
erty be accorded to the press though it
may be abused by the baser sort ul
But on all other matters, tbe alleged
Columbia and Western land "deal." the
Kaleti Island "steal," the awful.* mysterious wrong doing that must be I.*-
hind Charles Wilson's retirement trom
the cabinet, the alleged weakness of the
laBt school aet, and the score, or mon
of allegations that made up the stock-
in-trade of tbe Liberal campaign orations and editorials���on all these there
Is now not a w-ord said.
It may be answered that this ls not
the time to speak, or tliat the decisive
verdict of the people recorded last Feb
ruary has closed discussion on these
matters for ever. If bo, British Columbia
is the only part of the Hritlsh Empire
where such an answer is -nade. The
British Conservative party's present
position seems utterly hopeless. They
are buried beneath a hostile majority
unparalleled in nearly a century. Never
did the voice of a national electorate
seem so decisive as tbat of the voters
of the llrltlsh Islands in the last general elections. And yet the British Conservatives continue to fight manfully
for the causes that to some seem lost
forever, and to denounce what seem to
them to be errors though endorsed by
an overwhelming majority.
In Canada, too, there Is a similar
position. The    Conservative     party
iiiiinbers scarcely a third of the house
of commons. Their opponents since
their flrst victory have been twice de-
oisively returned to power although the
record for their second term was nearly
as bud as it is now, and their neglect
and repudiation of so-called Liberal
principles was as complete then as now
except in the matter of mere continuance in time. Still, Conservatives have
never faltered nor rested; they are
striving as c insistently and vigorously
now as they did In 189(1 for the triumph
of tlie principles of the National Policy
with all Its corollaries In the Held of
Imperial policy, and are denouncing its
v gorously now as at any tme during
the last eleven years the gross corruption ol Liberal administration, the deg-
radatl n of the bench and the civil
service, and the shameless debauchery
of the electorate as exposed in West
Elgin, Went Huron, the city of Loudon
and  many  other constituencies.
Even in Ontario, where the Liberal
numbers uf the legislature are proportionately as weak as the Tories in
the British house of commons, and with
the add! ional disadvantage of a united
government party to face, have not despaired. Although they have to admit,
ami do manfully admit, that the government Is doing well, they bave accepted brav. ly the task of watching for
errors and omissions and entering in-
i-tant protest against them.
Hut in British Columbia the Liberal
i pposltlon seems to have lost heart entirely. Their qulescense admits of only one explanation. Their last campaign
muBt have been one of deliberate misrepresentation. It Is lncredlable
that men who believed the charges that
were hurled at Premier McHrlde and
would  accept as final a seeming  en-
Cunada and the United States have
suffered during the last year from the
most perslBteut and wide-spread Industrial agitations ou record. Hardly a
single industry has wholly escaped. The
result Is that production iu many of the
lines of greatest Importance to the community hus boon so seriously retarded
und curtailed as to Interfere with many
other dependent industries. The car
shortage which exists to a very serious
tlegree iu both couutrles, and which so
heavily handicaps the transcontinental
roads especially, may be traced directly
to tbe dearth of labor and the Interruption of labor by strikes. Again, to the
car shortage, coupled with the protracted Btrlke of coal miners last spring,
is due to the shortage of coke Which
has been a source of anxiety e**er since
to the smelter managers, and which
has finally forced the Oranby smelter
to cease ..peratlonB.
It is one of the little Ironies that Hon.
���Randolph Lemleux' bill for the easy
and peacerul settlement ot all trade disputes has been followed Immediately
by more strikes than have ever occurred in Canada before iu the same
length of time. With a strange lack of
humor the Liberal press kept assuring
the country that as soon as the bill was*
understood there would be no more
strikes. Count Tolstoi used to be convinced that if every one understood the
Hible as he did there would be no more
wars and no more crime or injustice.
A law that has to depend on its own
��� sweet reasonableness" for its enforcement might better never have been
passed. The law does indeed provide
machinery for the settlement of disputes, but no better than was already
in existence. Hut lt also contains penalty clauses which few believe can ever
be enforced and which so far the government has dot dared to attempt to enforce. The Lemleux Act, for all its
transparently beautiful good Intentions,
Is a hopeless failure.
What, then, is to be done? Laborers
place the blame lor all strikes on the
greed and oppression ot employers, especially of corporations. Employers
charge them all lo unreasonable demands for wages advanced by the men.
and to attempts by the unions to unduly
restrict employers In the management
of their concerns. It Is likely, Indeed
almost certain, that in every case there
are faults on both sides. Hut, unfortunately, it is not thoBe who are at
fault who are the chief sufferers.
Neither members of employing corporations, nor of labor unions, nor bo th
together, constitute a majority of the
people of Canada. The Dominion government has now gone too far to recede. It must go forward. It has a
department of labor with a fair wage
officer, and it has the power of compelling compliance with its decrees by
the employers, lt Is Ub plain duty to
provide for similar enrorcement ot its
decrees sb against the unions.
Nothing can be gained by abuse ol
corporations, they are a necessity lor
the prosecution ol such enterprises as
railways, mines and extensive manufactures; nor by abuse or unions, they
are, ir not a necessity, at leas* a valuable means and so rar the only one lor
bettering the conditions or labor where
its Interests conflict with ImperBonal
corporations. Hut the Interest or the
������hole country must not depend upon
the leasonableness or the public spirit
of either a corporation or a union. The
Dominion government has accepted the
responsibility and undertaken tbe task
of preventing such lnterrerence with the
industry of the nation. Its flrst effort
has railed. The task must be perrorm-
ed. Here Is the flrst Important problem
that has confronted the Dominion government. Here is scope tor real statesmanship. Is there a statesman in t_lii;
Laurier  cabinet equal to the task ?

A critic of the education department
advocates cheaper text hooka. The hiir-

to its acceptance Ib that the authorised
texts, and all texts that might be authorized are manufactured outside of

to eastern manufacturers secured a
small reduction in the prices of some
of the elementary books. The Vancouver Traues and Labor Council some
few years ago adopted and circulated a
resolution calling upon the provincial
fcovornment to print and distribute text
bonks free to .all scholars in public
schools. They quite forgot the Important question of copyright. Apart altogether from the cost of production,
which would be at least twice as great
in Victoria as in Toronto, the preparation of a new set of text booka would
cost about ten times the annual school
book bill of the province���unless the

spirited philanthropy to do it for nothing.

Aylesworth nn behalf of the government
the Mall and Krnplre says:
"Mr. A. H. Aylesworth, as acting Minister of Public Works, gave the country
a little surprise when he announced
lhat grafting is tolerated at Ottawa,
and presented as an illuBtratton his
own conduct In allowing a politician to
charge for a piece of land fifty per cent,
more than it Ib worth. Had anyone
else accused the ruling men of the offence to which Mr. Aylesworth confesses, the party would at once have attributed the accusation to slander. The
same minister gave us another little
surprise when he altered the prohibition

Trunk Pacific Under the Public Works
Act liquor must not be sold In the vicinity of public works. This regulation
interfered with the business of certain
liquor sellers. The minister, therefore,
out down the area within which the
sale of liquor is proscribed, and thus
administered to the needs of the thirsty.
"A new BOll-aa of surprises Is reported
from the Yukon, aud Mr. Aylesworth

the subject of complaint at Ottawa, and

miniHter of Justice iuHtructed hla rep-
re��entatlve In the Yukon to take
nieauureB to Kuppre.su or to mitigate
the evil. It had been ��uppo��ed tbat the
justice department would have ordered
action the moment the wrong was mentioned. But, to the mortification of the
people of Dawson, th, minister. Instead
of proHecutinK, commanded that no action he commenced. Still another surprise has bees occ&tdcnud In connection
with the Sunday law. Mr. Aylesworth
put lhat law through the house of commons, and be often tells us what a
splendid body of legislation it Is. One
of his orations allege! that lt has secured for the workman his day of rest, and
has Kiven us quiet on the Lord's Day.
Yet the assistant commissioner of the
Yukon having, with the aid of the
Mounted Police, taken action with respect to violations of the law, Mr.
Aylesworth has written that functionary as follows:
'The duties of those charged with the
enforcement of the criminal law ln the
Yukon territory will be discharged If
adequate attention is paid to any complaint that may be preferred. If any
complaint Is made of the violation of
this Act It should be referred to this
department for consideration, but tbe
complainant should be required to state
carefully the particulars of the offence,
and grounds on which he seeks leave
to institute a prosecution. He should
also give due notice to persons against
whom It is desired to proceed, so that
tho latter may have opportunity to present facts or circumstances on which
he may rely as showing tbat it Is unjust or inexpedient to authorize the
prosecution, on receipt of which complaint and statement, with evidence of
notice, the matter will be duly considered in this department, and the consent of the attorney-genera I given or
withheld as the circumstances shall require.'
"ThU means that the local authorities are not to enforce the law which
Mr. Aylesworth tells us is so just, but
are to allow other people to take the
matter up, and are to report to Ottawa,
two or three thousand miles distant,
and await instructions from that quarter
Thus the carrying out of the statute is
to be balked.
"It will be observed that as regards
the sale of liquor la the vicinity of
public works, the immorality reported
at Dawson, and tbe violations of the
Sunday law, there is parliamentary
authority for legal action. We need not
stop to urge whether parliament was
right or wrong in the policy it has laid
down. The point ls not the merit of
the law, but tbe existence of the law.
That the law Is there is Indisputable.
And the chief administrator of the law,
is engaged in rendering lt ineffective.
Mr. Aylesworth is a terrible mistake
as a minister. While the cabinet
changes are being made, he ought to
be permitted to follow Messrs. Hyman
and Emmerson Into retirement."
Mourning Garb.
A noted English artist was once
standing at the edge of the road, waiting for a horse and he was dressed in
his usual peculiar style���mustard-colored riding suit, vivid waistcoat, and
bright red tie. A man who evidently
had been reveling, happened to lurch
round the corner of the street. He
stared at the famous artist for a minute in silence .then he touched his cap
and asked in a tone of deep commiseration: -"Beg pardon, guv'nor, was you In
mourntn'  for anybody ?"
