Medley. Aug. b.���The people of Medley are, fur the niont pftft, Hatlsfled that
the Ureal Northern Railway company
are not disposed to keep them waiting
any linuser for n railway than la nc^c-eH-
sary, any a the Hedley Gazette. Thin
week they have hud another evidence
of this in the appearance on the scene
of Mr. .1. II. Kennedy, chief engineer of
the V. V. &. E., who waa accompanied
by Mr. T. G. Gallagher, who was one
of lhe most prngreKstve of the aub-con-
tractora operating between Midway and
Molaon during the period of grading operations Ihore. The work done hy Gallagher's grading camjiH covered Home of
the heaviest work on the route, and particularly the portion of it from Myera

Messrs. Kennedy and Gallagher came
Into Keremeos on Friday evening on a

After consultation with the superintendent on track-laying, ballasting, etc.,
and inspection of the work, they proceeded up the river accompanied hy

Running Kootenay Rapids
Ends in Death
Proposed Voyaging From Slocan Junction to Trail in Canvas Boat���
,0ne Swam to Safety.
Kootenay river has claimed another
life. Yesterday afternoon about 2
o'clock two men attempting to navigate
the Kootenay and Columbia from t-ilo
can Junction lo Trail in a collapsible
canvas boat, were thrown into the Kootenay a few miles above Its mouth, by
the caps zing of their boat, and one,
Uavid Noble, was drowned.
Duvld Noble, aBsayer and chemist at
Ihe Trail smelter of the Canadian Consolidated Mining and Smelting company,
and John Miller, superintendent of the
refinery of the same plant, came over
to Slocan Junction for the express pur
pose of running tbe rapids and travelling back to Trail by the rivers. They
spent Saturday evening at the Junction
aud yesterday at about 12:30 p. in. they
set out on their voyage, possibly not
realizing how dangerous It was.
After an hour and a half of good sport
wiih tbe river they passed Thrums and
were Into the bad water which goes almost to ihe confluence of the livers.
There were a few minutes of excited
stiuggllng with currents and eddies,
and their frail craft capslsed.
Neither could help the other in such
circumstances, and each struck out for
shore. Mr. Miller chose the south bank
as his objective and reached It after an
exhausting fight with tbe current and
undertow of the rapids.
When he looked back neither his late
companion nor the boat was anywhere
to be seen. He at once began a search
which he continued far Into the night
and resumed again this morning, not
now for n living comrade but for a lifeless body. Up to the time when the
train from Uossland passed tho spot this
morning his search had been vain.
David Noble came from Ottawa. Prior
to his acceptance of hlB position al
Trail he had been an engineer In the
service of the C. P. R. and later in the
Yukon. He was about 27 years of age
and unmnnled. He was a fine athlete,
a lacrosse and hockey player, an oarsman and a iiowerful swimmer. He was
extremely popular with all hla fellow-
workmen and with the whole population
of Trail, who will deeply regret his untimely death.

Japanese   Poaching   Schooners   Driven
From  Copper   Island by
Russian Guard.
Victoria, Aug. 6.���Advices have been
received of an attempted sealing raid by
the Japanese sealing schooners Kaki
Maru and Midori Marur on June 1st on
the seal rookery at Cooper Island,
guarded by Russians. The schooner
Kalkl Maru has returned to Noyoka,
Japan, and reported three of her sealing boatB and 12 men captured by Russians. The other Japanese sealing
schooner, the Midori Maru, which had
been anchored close to the Kalki Maru,
had been fired upon by the Russian
rookery guard and her mast had been
damaged by the shell fired from the
field gun on shore. Investigation by the
local authorities* sh-r-ws that the two
schooners had gone to Cooper Island to
raid the seal rookery and had been surprised by the Russian guard, which had
been strengthened and armed with a
field gun in addition to rifles since the
organized raid of several Japanese sealing vessels before. One of the Japanese
was shot and 12 captured from Kalkl
Maru. It Is not known yet what befell
the Midori Maru crew.

Prospective Coal Strike.
Pittsburg. Aug. 5.���Today promised to
bring developments In the controversy
between the local district of the United
Mine Workers and the Pittsburg Coal
Co. From Indications at a late hour
last night there Is every expectation
of a sympathetic strike being called
some time there. The strike will be
confined to employees of the Pittsburg
Coal Co., according to an official of the
company last night, who at this time refuses to be quoted. Either President
Feehan. of tho local lodge, must modify

British Army Described
From Within
Force and Hanger the Only Efficient
Recruiting Sergeants���Dark
Picture Drawn.
London, Aug G.���H. W. Nevlson, who
has bad a wide experience In the British army, makes some pungent remarks
on that army in a review of tbe book
"John Bull's Army From Within," by
Robert Edmondson, a former Bergeant
in a famous cavalry regiment. He says:
"Except in the United States and our-
Belves, all nations trust to force to fill
the ranks of their regular armies. What
the United States trust to I do not know
from first hand knowledge. We In Great
Britain and Ireland trust to hunger. 1
do not mean that without force or hunger there will be no soldier in the
world, but I do mean that without one
or the other of these grim recruiting
sergeants no nation could maintain even
a skeleton of its present military
strength for a single year. Most nations use force;  we use hunger.
"At one time I was engaged In passing the rich into the army as officers,
and the great triumph of my life was
when I got tbe stupldist man I have
ever known Into the Foot Guards, where
he was conspicuous for his weather rather than his stupidity. Afterward for 15
years 1 belonged Co a service that
brought me into close touch with a
class that supplies the ranks.
"In that time I passed more men into
the regular army than the most persuasive recruiting sergeant in St. George's
barracks, and I never knew one who enlisted unless he was out of work and
likely to remain so. Every man and
boy who passed through my hands into
tho army was driven to it by hunger.
Mr. Edmonson maintains that 80 per
cent of our soldiers enlist In the army
through hunger. My experience puts
the percentage higher."
Another passage, after a sarcastic reference to Rudyard Kipling's raving
about the "lordliest life on earth," says:
"Let us remember that the short service scheme of 1903 absolutely broke
down, because after three years of the
lordliest life on earth hardly a soul
would reenllst. Let us remember that
of these recruits one in ten deserts
rather than endure it longer, and that
suicides In the army are nearly four
times the number of suicides In civil
"So long as-officers enter the army as
the best of all sporting clubs, while we
treat the Tommys as refugees In a superior workhouse, all of Secretary of
War Haldane's manipulation of figures
and organizations can produce no genuine reform.*'
Need Federal Troops.
El Paso, Tex., Aug. 5.���The supreme
federal court, sitting in Juarez, for tht
investigation of whoesale smuggling
investigation of wholesale smuggling
terday handed down charges against
Mayor Sllano Montez, who disappeared
on Monday night of last week, of smug
gling 20 cars of wheat, upon which
charges he Is liable to duties and pen
altles amounting to $00,000 and 12
years' Imprisonment. Other charges
much more serious, are pending

Rockefeller,    Interview   In   Church,   Is
Quite Cheerful.
Cleveland, Aug. 5.���If Judge Landls'
decision has been a great blow to John
D. Rockefeller, he does not show It.
Bright, almost blithe, and with a joke
on his II ps as he spoke of It, be attended
service at the Euclid avenue Baptist
church yesterday.
"There is nothing to say about the
decision, is there?" he queried good
naturedly when pressed to discuss it.
Then he backed away from his interviewer and up the church aisle to a
sure position, lingering just long enough
to Impress upon their minds the necessity of being prompt tomorrow in keeping their engagement with him lo play
golf. "I am an early riser," he said with
a laugh. "I suppose you newspaper
men think 8 o'clock is an unearthly
hour, but you know it was the early
bird  that   was   caught.
"I find that hour, however, the best
to meet my friends," he continued, more
.seriously, "about the best time for conversation is during a golf game. There
are many excellent golfers In Cleveland
and I hnve been quite happy with them
I assure you." He shook hands with a
friend whom he had not seen for some
time and Inquired where he had been.
"I have just come from North Carolina, Mr. Rockefeller." the man replied,
"they are going after the combines
down there, too"
The oil magnate smiled slightly, replying, "Keeping them going all along
the line." He stepped Into his automobile with the Rev. Mr. Wilson,, whom
he entertained at dinner.

Programme   of   Aquatic   Sport, te  Be
Held  Thursday   Afternoon-
Many Competitors.
Thursday afternoon of this week the
people of Nelson will have an opportunity of seeing a regatta in their home
waters. The programme -ill be sufJI-
clently varied to provide continuous Interest and every effort will be made to
avoid, by alteration ot dissimilar events,
the long and tedious intervals which
used to mar the boat club regattas.
The official programme has not been
drafted yet, but will be completed as
soon as the time for entries has expired for tbe lapsteak and single scull
events. In the miscellaneous events,
as usual, post entries will be accepted.
The participation of ladles has been
provided for by the Inclusion in the list
of canoe races of ladies' doubles and
mixed doubles. There will also be double and single canoe races for members, and swimming and tilting competitions. The executive of the club has
arranged for prizes for all these events.
The chief features of the programme,
however, will be the single sculls race,
and the lapstreak fours. This ia the
first season that any degree of attention
has been paid to single sculling. The
club's equipment In this respect Is better than ever before, and many of the
members have gone in for what ts,
after all, the supreme test of individual
In the lapstreak races there will be at
least four entries, which will provide
three races. If there are more entries,
more races will be required and the
final may not be reached on Thursday.
The Nelson boat club Is now the holder
of the Junior Fours championship. The
oarsmen who won that distinction for
the club are now seniors and disqualified from junior events. If they are all
available next year Nelson's chance for
the senior championship will be excellent. But In the meantime a new four
must be developed to defend the cub
that now belongs to Nelson. That
should, and undoubtedly will, be sufficient spur to all the oarsmen to do their
best to qualify for the honor of maintaining Nelson's prestige. The honor
Is appreciated by the members and
there are already enough keen oarsmen
In training to assure spectators a series
of close contests In that department of
the regatta.

French Demonstration Is
Tribesmen Urge Surrender of Caid Sir
Harry MacLean���Business in
Towns Suspended.
Tangier, Aug. 6.���Up to noon Sunday
no further advices had been received
from Casa Blanca. The arrival there
of the French cruiser Galilee last Wednesday made a good Impression but the
Europeans were still greatly excited
as 2000 Arab horsemen were in sight of
the city. The commander of the Galilee
offered to bombard the town but the
foreign consuls prevented this action.
All foreign business houses and the
banks are closed and business Is at a
standstill. The Italian cruiser Etna
with the Italian minister aboard haa arrived at Casa Blanca. The excuses presented by the emissary of Mohammed
EI Torres, foreign representative of the
sultan, for the disturbances at Casa
Blanca have been received here with
derision. There is no confirmation of
the report that the Zaer tribesmen
threaten to attack the town ot Rebat.
In spite of his wounds, tt is reported
that General Baggatl. head of the government force operating against the
bandit Ralsull, In an endeavor to rescue
Cald Sir Hurry MacLean, Is pre*Jflng on.
It Is said the tribesmen are frightened
at the manner In which Bagatti is sack-
ins; and burning villages and are negotiating with Ralsull for the release of
Official advices received here say that
the Shereeflan troops have attacked and
burned the village of Huuta, near Ral-
BUli's abode.
It Is now transpires that when, on
July 27, the Kmas tribesmen demanded
that Raisull surrender Sir Harry Mac-
Lean because they feared an attack by
the sultan's troops, Raisull suddenly
vanished .taking MacLean with him Into
the hills where he left him in charge or
his (Ralsuli's) brother. Maclean then
was badly treated but after five days
was brought back again. Negotiations
for his release continue.
Poor but Proud.
Rome, Aug. 5.���Oulda refuses to receive offerings sent to her by the Italians. She tears up the bank notes and
throws the pieces In the street. The
Tribuna publishes a letter from the
mayor of Massarosa, who says ho vainly attempted to deliver to her $12 offered by one of the Trlbuna's readers,
and It warns Italians not to show generosity towards an ungrateful foreigner.

Monday,   August  5,   1907.
After the echoes of the last hurrahs
for Wilfrid Laurier's return to Canada
have died away even his own followers
will begin to take a calm survey of his
performance abroad, and of what Canada has gained or  lost by it.
The purpose of the Conferences between statesmen of the Mother country
and of the self-governing colonies is to
seek and p-srfeol meani of co-operation
among them, and in time to convert
What is now a loose association of self-
governing peoples into one organic-
whole. Each ��step in advance must be
made voluntarily by each nation. That
was accepted as an axiom at the first
conference. As the interests of the parte
are diverse it requires statesmanship
and devotion to the Imperial Idea] to
pave the way for each advance.
Unfortunately the issues have been
obscured by Mr. Chamberlain's crusade
for inter-Iiuperial preferential tariffs,
Piohably a zollverin of the kind he
proposes will corne wiih ihe years. The
colonies are all Protectionist and the
Mother Country cannot much longer
support the burden of free Import! and
slaughter markets.
But at the best, fiscal union is only a
means to an end, aud it was most unfortunate that the end should be obscured by an initial disagreement about
the means.
The really important consideration
lor statesmen of the Empire is the organization of its strength to resist attack. It. Is vulnerable at a thousand
points. An insignificant enemy might
do Incalculable damage at one unguarded   S]K>t.
It iB not to be thoughl of tha Unpeople of the "dominions beyond the
seas," constituting, in the self-governing colonies, one fourth of the British
population of the Empire, nre to leave
to the Inhabitants of the home iHlunds
the whole burden of Imperial  defence.
The answer that in time of danger
the daughter nations wiij rally to the
aid of the home land is wholly illusory.
In the South African War the entire
contribution of men from the colonies
including those actually invaded by the
enemy was less than 30,000 men, not
one-twelfth of the force required. Of
those Canada furnished less than 3,000,
and refused to pay even those few.
What is of still greater importance, and
not much less discreditable, the colonial soldiers, especially the Canadians,
required six months training in the field
before they were ready for the firing
Such colonial aid, offered for a really
formidable struggle with a first-class
power would be absurd. If the Empire
is to endure there must be far better
orgaaadation, and more loyal co-operation than was shown then.
So far, the British ministers have
never pressed upon colonial attention
tbe question of military organization.
.They expressed no regret when the
Canadian government decided that a
volunteer chief of staff would do instead
of a veteran officer. But they have
asked for Colonial co-operation for
naval defence. The response has been
favorable from all  but Canada.
That w-as the most. Important, almost
the only important, question raised at.
the late conference, and on it Sir Wilfrid Laurier's 'reply was a blank negative. The excuses offered by him, If
sincere, were puerile. If he really
thinks lhat the Canadian constitution
would be violated by any undertaking of
his. or hy his even expressing approval
of the proposal* he has the simple remedy of proposing it himself In the Canadian parliament and making Canada's
contribution purely voluntary.
To say that Canada cannot draw
closer to the rest of the Empire without
losing her own freedom is either insincere or childish. Is British Columbia
less free because It is part of Canada,
nr California less free because 11 is one
of the United States? That kind of argument will surely not beguile even
Canadian Liberals.
That Canadians do feel the humiliation the country has Buffered from the
act of its premier is evident from the
OOmmentfl of the Eastern preBH. Liberals are fond of quoting the Toronto
News when it criticizes Conservative
public   men.     We   subjoin   the   News'
criticism or Sir Wilfrid Laurier's attitude on the only important question before the conference, presumably therefore the achievement for which he expects   applause:
At the Imperial Conference Australia
and Soutli Africa were In favor of establishing local naval forces. New
Zealand desired to help in the work of
defence, hut was undecided whether to
adopt the new principle of local forces
or to stick to tlie old plan of oonetri-
butlng to the navy. Canada refused to
do anything. Sir Wilfrid Laurler argued
that we have to put our energy into
public works, and Mr. Brodeur submitted an argument, which surely cannot
be taken seriously, that in policing our
fisheries, charting our coasts and establishing u wireless telegraphy system
for the benefit of shipping, we are adding to the war strength of the Empire.
Putting Bfilde Mr. Brodeur's argument
as frivolous, it appears that Canada's
official position is tbat she is too absorbed In public works to spare any
money for naval defence. The old "taxation without representation" objection
has disappeared, for the Mother Country
and the other Dominions across the
Seas came to a complete understanding in favor of local forces. The Admiralty is now making of us the request
which the War Office made in 1S70. Just
as we then agreed to keep up a iniiitia
to provide for the local land defence,
we now are asked to maintain a local
force lor coastal defence under our own
control. Canada's reply is that she is
too tansy with her public works, and
cannot afford to do so.
It Is to be noted that Australia, New
Zealand and South Africa all have the
same need for public works. Indeed, it
is a greater need for none of them are
as prosperous as Canada, and Australia
and South Africa are dependent to au
extent unknown here upun railway communication. Vet they are wiling to do
something for their coastal defence. If
anything, Canada is better able to afford  the expenditure than any.
The expense would not be formidable
in this day of hundred-million sessions.
The Australians went to the conference
with a plan for a flotilla of 124 torpedo
vessels, entailing a capital expenditure
of ��2,250,000, or $10,800,000, spread
over five years, and an annual cost of
maintenance, when complete, of ��167,*-
970, or rather over $800,000. The admiralty made a counter-suggestion that
the local naval force should consist
largely of submarines. Each submarine
costs at present about $400,o0o, and half
a dozen���say one nt Belle Isle, two at
Sydney, one or two at the Bay of Kun-
dy���would keep hostile warships well
out in the Atlantic. Such a force would
cost only $2,4000,000 in capital expenditure, or a quarter of the expenditure
Australia is offering to take on herself.
To keep these vessels up, and to train
a naval militia, need not add more than
half a million to our present militia expenditure.
It remains to be seen whether the
country relishes Sir Wilfrid Laurier's
declaration that Canada Is too poor to
protect her own coasts and too absorbed in transportation problems to increase her defence expenditures by a
few hundred thousands a year for a
naval  militia.

Distinguished    Physician's    Defence    of
Use  of Alcohol���Teetotalers
Only in Theory. **
Ivondon, Aug. 3.���The battle goes on
over the question of the value of alcohol. Sir James Crlchton-Browne raised
it on Thursday night at the annual dinner of the Medical-Psychological association. He took the company present as
an object lesson in support of his views
as a friend of alcohol.
With the friendly assistance of the
manager of the dining room where the
dinner was held Sir James made a careful record of what they individually
and collectively drank. Then when he
pro-posed a toast to science he sprung
the result of his observation with the
following remarks:
"We have at this table many of the
highest authorities In tbe country on
the alcohol question. The medical su-
l*rintendents of lunatic asylums, who
see much of the evils of alcohol, are
strenuous advocates of temperance and
have supplied teetotaleers with some of
their strongest arguments. I thought,
therefore, that it would be interesting
to ascertain how far they have adopted
lhe extreme views on tbe nJoohol question which are now being promulgated.
"There are now at this tahle 84 mem
bers of the association. Of them 6 per
cent, have declined alcohol, although
all the rest, 94 per cent., have partaken
ur alcohol in some form, aud a large
majority in different forms. I dined a
fcntnight ago with 18 of the leading men
of science of the day, from the venerable Lord Kelvin down, and not one of
them declined   alcohol.
"These are facts," added Sir James,
���and in view of such facts It would be
a farce or obsession or gross hyperbole
to speak of alcohol as a deadly poison.
Those who declared alcohol to be a
deadly poison should also state that we
constantly carry about in our bodies
more deadly jioisons or toxins, but
these human poisons are harmless and
may be beneficial so long as they are
kept in their right places, and our aim
should be to keep alcohol in Ub right

R. F. Green'* Reputation Cleared From
Any  Suspicion  of  Corrupt
Aet or Motive.
Of the Libel suit Instituted by R. F.
Green against the Vancouver World,
and the conclusions from the evidence
and the verdict, the Victoria Colonist
"The libel suit of Kobert F. Green
against the Vancouver World Is of general public Interest, not only because of
the prominence of the persons whose
names were associated with it, but because of the principles involved. The
circumstances out of which the Buit
arose are familiar to all persons who
took any interest in the last provincial
elections, and it was a charge hy the
World that Sir Adolpbe Caron had offered Mr. Green, thhen commissioner of
lands and works, some shares in a company which was seeking concessions
from the government, which Bhares Mr.
Green did not receive, but told Sir
Adolpbe he might issue to Mr. Nell McKay. The newspaper aleged that this
was a corrupt transaction. The World
pleaded justification and the jury decided In Its favor. The important evidence in the case was that of Mr. D. W.
lijggings, who was editor of the World
at the time and wrote the article complained of. He said substantially that
having received certain Information he
made Inquiries of Sir Charles Tupper
and Mr. Cowan, who as counsel for
Sir Adolphe Carou, would be in a position to know the facts, and that, while
they did not give any information, he
Inferred from what they did say that
the Information was correct, and he
published It accordingly. There was
very little dispute as to facts, and the
verdict of the jury does not seem to
amount to anything more than that
under the circumstances Mr. Higgins
exercised no more than the legal right
vested in a newspaper. Nothing was
proven at tbe trial which the public did
not know already. Mr. Green was subjected to severe cross-examination and
nothing was elicitedcalculatedinthere-
motest degree to reflect upon his honor
as a public official or private citizen.
Although he did not receive a verdict
he obtained what is far better Jin op-
I>ortunity to face a public cross-examination in the course or which all his
acts and methods could be fully gone
into. The most unfriendly critic will
have to admit that nothing brought out
In the trial reflected upon his integrity,
aud while there may be differences of
opinion as to whether or not he exercised good Judgment in his reply to Sir
Adolphe Caron, the cross-examining
counsel, according to the report in the
World ltaelf, said to the jury that 'he
personally had no lll-feellng against Mr.
Green but personally felt an admiration
for him.' This tribute from hostile
counsel, who, it so happens, is and has
been openly opposed to Mr. Green politically, is all that Mr. Green and his
friends could ask for. It la better than
the verdict of a jury, because it was
a voluntary tribute to Mr. Green's
worth, whlcb the learned counsel was
not under any obligation professionally
to offer."  ^^^^
