Andaman Islanders Make
No Progress.
Sketch of Country Chosen as Site of
Penal Colony for Dangerous
Hindoo Agitators.
Calcutta, India, Sept. 10.���Earth's old
est and oddest race of men has been
brought prominently Into notice again
through the widespread Interest aroused by sending a batch of Indian i.i.lin. ;.l
agitata.rs to the penal settlement on the
Andaman Islands, that beautiful coral-
bound archljH'lago In the May of llengal.
This remana'nt of the most primitive
existence will soon be nothing but an
a'thnologfcal memory. Contact with advanced clvlll2atii.u has been followed as
usual with a train of Infectious diseases
which are steadily thinning the ranks.
Owing to the ancient course of trade
the Andamaneae bave been known
about from th e earlleat times. Ptolemy's Agathan Diamonos Nesos probably preserves the misunderstanding of
some term applied by Bailors to a place
ln or near the modern Andamans. Notices of them by travellers, Asiatic and
European, are continuous from the seventeenth century', and the Islands regularly apisear ln some shape on tbe maps
of those regions from the middle agea
The Adam'anesc live In a HeBperid-
ian garden where they toil not, neither
do they- spin. For the product of the
spinner they have no use, aa the men
go Btark naked, and the women wear
one or more leaves in front and a bunch
of leaves tied round the waist behind.
The average- height of the men Ib 68
Inches aud that of the women 64 Inches.
They appear to dwell free from care
In a country thut is evenj-where beautiful and varied.
In the ordinary attainments of human beings, however unenlightened,
tho Adamanose aro amazingly deficient.
During all tbe ages of their Intercourse
by word of mouth they huve not developed a medium worthy of the name of
language. Hefore the arrival of the British the tribes, except actual neighbors,
had no intercourse. Even clans of the
name tribe found difficulty ln the de-
tat Ib of dialogue with one another.
There Is u change of jargon along about
every twenty mll.rs of the coast. They
have no words for ordinary greetings,
salutations or expressions of thanks.
Such language ub they have, however.
Is exceedingly Interesting from the
philological point of view. It possesses
a quality which would be invaluable
were the Andamanese a business people. In their speech only what Is absolutely necessary Is usually expressed.
These miles of humanity could do just
as Wall probably without any words ut
all. Th ey have an expressive sign Ian-
gunge, which they employ almost as
much ns Ihe spoken words. Their
speech Is Jerky, disjointed nnd helped
out often by a grimace, a gesture or a
sudden change In tone.
The Andnmiineae knows scnrcely any
thing nnd has no desire to Increase his
atock of kno-wlodgo. He has never
learned any sort of agriculture. Until
the English tiiughl him io keep dogs he
did not know how lo domesticate any
animal or bird. He cannot count, even
with his flng-TB, and doesn't see the
need of counting. All his Ideas are hazy
and Inaccurate.
On one point, however, he Is level
headed. He belongs to a race of bad
fighters, knoifs It and will nover attack
unless cortnlm of success.
Tho Andaiimneso are nomads. They
have their customary places for encampments, nnd dwell there by turns
year after yen r. Close to every hut is
a small ptatfiirm built of palm wood,
Minn.ling about elghtoon Inches from
the ground. This Is a storage place
for the surplus food that they gather
when nature for some reason fallB to lay
It In tholr hands.
Under this platform at least one
flre is always kept burning. Good care
Is taken that Ihe plnt.form shall bo a
protection for the Ore against rain and
not fuel for the flame.
Thlfl preservation or* flre la tho only
thing about  which    the    AndaraancBo
evince any particular care or Interest.
And the reason Is a simple one. They
do not know how to produce flre. One
of tbe greatest mlBfortunea tbat can
befall a camp Is the going out of a flre.
It may be weeks before the clan can
get a new  blaze for their cooking.
They carry their flre with them when
they break camp, and tbla despite the
fact that their journey Is sometimes
from one Island to another. They show
amazing skill In carrrying a smouldering
log across deep water. Two or four of
them will swim the distance, holding
the log clear of the water. To arrive
on the opposite ahore with the blaze
extinguished It a mishap so rare as to
be handed down ln tribal legend for generations.
The religion Is animistic and consists
of fear of the spirits ot the woods,
the sea, disease and ancestors and of
avoiding of acts traditionally displeasing to them. A deity in the form of
man���Paluga���Is the cause of all things,
but It Is not necessary to propitiate him,
though acts displeasing to him are avoided for fear of damage to the products
or the jungle. Paluga dwells now in
the sky, but used to live on the top of
Saddle Peak, the highest mountain ln
the Andamans.
The. Andamanese Idea of the soul arises out of his reflection In the water.
This reflection Ib his spirit,, which goes
after leaving him to another jungle
world, which he believes to be flat and
supported by an Immense palm tree.
As near as anyone can get at his Idea,
the Andamanese believes that the soul
will go under the earth by means of an
aerial   bridge.
He has no idea of a heaven or hell or
a resurrection In the religious sense.
In other jungle worlds the spirit repeats Its former life, visits earth occasionally and never breaks Itself of
a habit of transmigrating Into other living spirits.
Lone  Hunter  Found   Dead Near Shore
of James Bsy After Absence of
Msny Mentha.
Fort William, Sept. 16.���The north
has revealed another tragedy in which
a trapper died alone far from the help
which   he   so   much   needed.
Wm. Fraser, guiding a party of Chicago gentlemen, named Dr. Bain, and
Messrs. Brlen and Logan, snd accompanied by four Indian csnoemen, left
.lui'ktisii for the north several weeks
When thirty-five miles Inland on tbe
Steel river Mr. Fraser discovered a canoe lying on the bank ot the river. On
examination he found that lt wus a
canoe he had loaned to a French Canadian named bastiste J uie ln the fall
or 1905. Following a trail which led
away from the river a short distance,
the party came to a shuck. There were
no signs of life about, nor Indication
that the Bback had been visited for
many months. Opening the door they
entered und discovered tbe evidence of
a iragedy.
A cap lying at one end of the rude
bed attracted attention, and on exam-
tlon It was found to cover the bare
skull of a human being. The bed clothing, which was in a bad state of decay,
on being thrown back, revealed the full
skela'tun of a man, and there on the
skeleton hung shreds of dry flesh, but
save for these the skeleton was perfectly bare.
The skeleton was resting on two
blanki'ts. and covered by six blankets.
Jtile, after locating his camp ln the fall
of WOO, procured traps and provisions,
and returned to his camp. That Is the
last time he was seen alive, and it Is
evlilcnt from the condition ln which his
remains were round that he died that
winter before the spring break-up.
Mr. Eraser haa reported the clrcum-
Btances of the case to Coroner Brown,
of Port  Arthur.
Dominion Officials Face
Oriental Problem.
China Seeka New Ally.
'London, Sept. 16.���The Chinese are
again turning toward America as their
only friend among the nations who can
be expected to take their side against
the threatened territorial aggressions
of Japan and European powers, according to the statements contained ln letters which have been received here from
an exceptionally well Informed American who has been travelling In Manchuria nnd northern China. President
Roosevelt's proposal to remit part of
the Indemnity appeara to have effaced
the resentment cnused by the exclusion
policy and the preparations made by
Chinese mercantile guilds of Shanghai,
which a year ago were actively promoting the boycott, to give an enthusiastic
reception to Secretary Taft, appears
slgnllicnnt ot the changed trend of
(Millies.' feeling toward tho United
Commissioner Scott En Rroote for
VancooTer���bhii to Meet
Foil Cabinet.
Ottawa, Sept. 16.��� The Dominion
government has under consideration a
proposition to amend the regulations
In regard to Immigration so that all
immigrants must have a certain amount
of money in their possession before be*
ing allowed to land. Hitherto there haa
been no money qualification for enter-
ing Canada, as there Is In the United
States. In this country lt has always
been regarded that an able bodied man
willing to work and without a dollar in
his pocket, was as good an asset to the
country aa the man who had some cash,
but was not bo particular about getting
work. However, to aid in solving the
question of Oriental Immigration, the
Dominion superintendent of immlgra-
gration, W. D. Scott, has recommended
that a money qualification be added to
the regulations. This can be done under
the act by the government imposing
such by order ln council.
Mr. Scott arrived from England on
Saturday and at midnight he was on
his way to Vancouver to make a
thorough investigation of the whole matter there. Friday evening Sir Wilfrid
Laurler telegraphed the mayor of Vancouver that the government would send
a commlasloner to enquire Into the question on the spot. It appeared from
Mayor Bethune's telegram to Sir Wilfrid
Laurier that some of the new arrivals
were paupers and should be deported.
Mr. Scott goes to see that all regulations are rigidly enforced and may suggest amendments as he has already
done to meet thla' particular class ol
immigration. Before leaving for the
west, Mr. Scott had a long conference
with Mr. Oliver, minister of the Interior,
and Mr. Cory, the deputy minister, in
relation to the whole subject.
Sunday the special envoy of Japan,
Mr. lshli, arrived In the city from the
coast. He came a day earlier than was
expected. He was met at the railway-
depot by Japanese Consul Qenera.
Nosse and F. C. T. O'Mara, of the Indi
and commerce department, on behalf ol
the government. Today Mr. Iahil will
have an Interview with the premier ana.
some of the other ministers of th.
crown and the views of Canada in regard to the Japanese Immigration wil.
be fully set forth. Canada will Instsi
upon the number of new arrtvels being
kept down to a minimum and Japan will
no doubt agree to this. All the minis
tors will meet Mr. lahll at the residenci
of the Japanese consul general on Tues
day evening. Sir Wilfrid Laurier ha>
received a telegram from the mayor ol
Vancouver stating that the Oriental!
were not paupers, his reason tor asking
the drill hall to house and keep them
at tbe governmen's expense was because there was no vacant houses to accommodate them. In answer to this
the premier said that he was glad ti
hear that the Immigrants were not
paupers. A commissioner, he added
has been sent to look Into the whole
Seen by the press correspondent, Mr
iBhll was asked lt he had anything tc
communicate to the press. He replied
that he had not. Being In charge of the
Japanese consuls ln foreign countries,
he came to Ottawa to see Mr. Nosse
As to the trouble in Vancouver "all Is
tranquil now," was his reply.
School Trustees' Meeting.
The regular meeting of the board of
schools trustees for September which
would ordinarily be held Friday evening
will probably be held tomorrow, as some
arrangements must be made for holidays for the Fair. The date for the
annual field day will probably also be
fixed. Another question which the
board will have to face at this meeting
1b that of teachers' salaries. A request
for an Increase will be presented by the
assistants on the public school staff
who have held their positions tor a year.
The reason for the request ts the greatly
Increased coat of living ln Nelson and
the high rate of pay In nearly every
other calling, even for unskilled labor.
The teachers will submit that their salaries do not bear nearly the same proportion to the cost of living now tha.
they did a few years ago, and they are
ln fact Inadequate, and also that lt la
an anomaly that they, who have spent
time and money to qualify for their
work, should receive leas remuneration
than any kind of unskilled lubor. It Is
asked that the board consider urn', act
upon their request now instead of deferring It as usual till the election of a
new board In January.
Pasaenger and Freight Tralne Collide in

White River Junction. >.     ��*iJJL'6-���
A rearful head on collision bet.  '*'���
southbound Quebec express and a n...
bound frt.trht train on the Conoord di
vision of the Boston and Main railroad
occurred four   miles   north  of Cannan
Btation early Sunday morning, due to a
mistake   ln   train   despatchers'   orders,
and from a demolished passenger coach
there were taken out 22 dead and dying .
and 27 other passengers, most of them I
sa-riously injured.    Nearly all those who���
were ln the death cars were returning
from a fair at Sherbrooke, Que., sixty
miles north.
The conductor of the freight train was
given to understand that he had time
to reach a siding, by the night operator
at Cannan station, receiving, according
to the superintendent of the division, a
copy of a telegraph order from the train
dispatcher at Concord which confused
the train numbers, 30 and 34. The wreck
occurred just after the express rad
rounded into a stretch of track, but
owing to the early morning mist,
neither engineer saw the other's headlight until too late.
Historical   and   Analytical   Treatise  by
Rev. J.  T.  Ferguson  Before
University Club.
The first meeting of the University
Club after Its summer vacation was
held ln the city hall Saturday night.
The public notice of the subject and
the general Invitation given by tbe club
to those Interested in the discussion to
attend, drew a fairly large audience to
hear Rev. J. T. Ferguson on "The Present Phase of the Socialistic Movement."
The members present were C. M.
Fraser, president. Rev. J. T. Ferguson,
Rev. F. H. Graham, Dr. K. C. Arthur,
A. L. McKlllop, Sheriff Tuck and R. J.
Clark. Among the visitors were His
Lordship the Bishop of New Westminster and Kootenay, N. 8. FraBer, E. K.
Beeston, F. Phillips and others.
W. J. Balrd having resigned the sec-
retary-treasurershlp "*R. J. Clark was
elected for the balance of the term.
The minutes were then read and adopted.
Rev. J. T. Ferguson defluci .he
socialism of today aa "not an academically formed body of principles but a
generally diffused effort on the ^art of
the men who bave attained political
power to correct the errors and counteract the dangers of competitive Individualism."
A brief historical summary was given of the last century and a half of organized socialistic effect especially in
France, England and Germany, a eullng
with the several revolutions In France,
the general continental movement it
1848, the careers of Marx and l.ns.ill.-,
the Christian Socialism of the English
school, and the late ebullition of a
purely economic socialism in tho Inst
British elections ���
Critical reference was also made to
several books on socialism, by Ileui-imin
Kldd, by Thomas Klrkup and Protessor
Prlngle-Paterson. By all it was admitted that no definite account can yet lie
given of the aims and aspirations of
thoae who call themselves Socialists,
many of whom might much more intelligently be described as humanitarian
Reference was made to a recent debate between President Schurnian and
Mr. Hllqult, ln which the former propounded public ownership of puhli.-r utilities us the goal of -he Anglo-!T.ixi>ii
SoclallBts, while the latter defined It es
public ownership of the means of production.
Mr. Ferguson expressed the hope
that advantage would always be taken
of such opportunities as the club nfforals
for friendly discussion on so Interesting
a subject.
I'.lshop Dart, Invited to speak dwelt
on the unfortunate antagonism to Christianity manifested by some classes or
Socialists, and showed that practically
all of the great reforms looking to tha.
Improvement of the conditions of the
poor were the work of men acting under the inspiration of the Christian
' R. J. Clark referred to "Gen." Booth's
recent remark that the only direction In
which Improvement of human society
may be found ia In the regenerutlon of
the Individual. He described soclalisin
aa an attempt to explain human 111 >
and history by analysis of the results
of only one department of human
effort. Alluding to Mr. Hllqult's definition of Socialistic alms he submitted
that public ownership of all instruments or production ts impossible sine"
the chief instrument of production I.
Several of the visitors also took part
in the discussion.
A. Ij. McKlllop announced ns his sub-
Ject for the October meeting "A Critical
Examination of the Principles of Scientific Socialism."

he is reported as bubbling of Boston tea
parties and secession from confr-iyru

foolish excesses of the Vancouver mob.
Poor Mr. Mcpherson's difficulties are as
comprehensible as his motives are transparent, iu* thought that a belligerent
attitude was conformable to the spirit
of his constituents. A noisy mob was
always his conception of a constituency.
Later be was reminded by some Intelligent person that the question was
full of difficulties for the Dominion cabinet, and that while he was welcome
to indulge In such stage play as his
taste should dictate, he must not embarrass his superiors, unless be were
willing tO give up hope of the office
for which be has been a suppliarft.
The attempt of the Liberals, members
and editors, to place the responsibility
for the present situation on Premier
McBride, is as dishonest as it is absurd.
Immigration is a matter or Dominion
not provincial concern. Hritish Columbia cannot exclude any class of immigrants. That can be done only by tin-
parliament of Canada. The resignation
of Mr. McHride, or any other possible
provincial premier- would produce only
confusion in the administration of Hritish Columbia, and could nut affect the
policy of the Dominion government
while our seven accredited representatives at Ottawa vote like sheep for
every ministerial measure. Messrs.
Turner. Semlin. Ma rtin, Dunsmuir and
Prior have had the same situation to
face as Mr. MsBiide, and none resigned.
It is true that Joe Martin didn't last
long enough as premier to pass any
measure, but it has taken him nine
years to evolve the conviction that a
provincial premier should resign if the
lieutenant governor, under Dominion or
Imperial instruction vetoes one of his
The problem ot' Asiatic immigration

The feeling of panic, that was probably genuine enough while it lasted, Is
passing away at the coast. It haa probably dawned upon all thinking men
that there ia no immediate danger of
the province being overrun by Oriental's
of any nationality. It la true that there
may even now be enough to compete
albly with certain classes of skilled labo.
aud, in the case of the Japanese, pota-
Jiibly with certain classes of white labor,
iiut unless the rate of Immigration ol
���She last few months lasts for several
.years there Is no danger of even the
numerical supremacy of the white race
tn British Columbia being threatened.
At the Bame time It la obvious to all
that a great part of the anti-Orientai
agitation haa been fomented for politi
cal  purposes.
This Is obvious from a very brief review of the facts. For nearly ten years
the legislature of Hritish Columbia has
been passing measures attempting to
restrloi, the entrance of Chinese and
Japanese. The great difficulty haa been
that the question Is of very little in
terest to the rest of Canada, and Hritish
Columbia's representatives at Ottawa
have been a neglibible quantity.
At laat an Increase In the head tax
on Chinese was secured by continue"!
agitation for it which, as far aa political
organizations in the west were concern
ud, was unanimous. Hut the matter of
Japanese Immigration could not be bo
easily dealt with. Japan Is in alliance
with Gnat Britain, and special restrlc
lions on the subjects of the Mikado
In a colony of an allied power would be
regarded aa an  unfriendly act.
Moreover at the last session of the
Canadian parliament a special agreement with Japan on lhe very subjec'
of Immigration was unanimously ratlll
ed.   It bappene that all the members of
parliament from this province are Liberals. Not one of them went on record
as opposing that agreement.
It Is only within the last few months
that Immigration of Japanese from
Hawaii has assumed large projiortions,
and. probably by mere coincidence,
there haa been a marked Increase in
the volume of immigration from Hindustan.
The attitude of Liberal politicians
and newspaper organs is worthy of
special analysis.
One feature, especially of local Interest, we refer to reluctantly. The Vancouver World published a sensationally
circumstantial story of a deal between
Premier McHride and the Dominion
government. Our contemporary published the same story on the front page
under a double column scare head. We
remarked that the story was obviously
absurd as the motives attributed to the
contracting parties were ridiculously inadequate, Our contemporary objected
vigorously to our view.
A few days later the Vancouver
World retracted and apologised for that
part of its story which alleged a corrupt
deal. Our contemporary did, indeed, reprint the retraction, but on an Inside
page, and under a heading which did
not in any way Indicate retraction, nor
was there one word of editorial notftN
of it. Even the Vancouver World,
pariah as It is among Hritish Columbia
newspapers,was more manly and courteous on this occasion than the usually
decent Nelson News.
Hut the attitude of Liberal politicians
is even more curious. Hon. Frank
Oliver paid a visit to the province and
all his utterances on the subject of Oriental Immigration both during and after |
his visit were purposely meaningleas
Hon. Mr. Templeman's remarks to the
Victoria Times, hi* own paper, are almost equally obscure,
Dut R. G. McPherson, M. P. for Vancouver, has held the centre of the
stage. Where the gentleman was when
the agreement with Japan was being
ratified by the Dominion parliament has
not been explained. Hut since it be
came obvious even to his intelligence
that the question was likely to be a
burning one in Vancouver, he has certainly not  been silent or Idle.
His utterances on the subject, unless
he haa been grosely and wilfully misrepresented by reporters and telegraph
operators, can only    be    described  as

Idea of the extent of the Nat Reias company the following is reprinted from the

"The huge carnival held under the
auspices, of lhe Klks Cluh of Calgary.
Ixidge No. Bl, the attractiona of which
were all fiirnlKlietl hy the Nat IlefHS
Carnival cimipany. opened vast nlghl
with great success. The show grounds
are situated on ESghth avenue, and oc
cupy  almost  the entire  block  between
Third and Fourth streets west.
"All the evening, from 7.30 to 11
o'clock, a large crowd of pleasure-seekers thronged the grounds, old and young
alike enjoying themselves to their
heart's content.    The  main feature of
attraction was the big one-ring circus
situated at the extreme west end of the
grounds, and the large crowd present
at every performance left the building
heartily satisfied, and feeling that they
had received full value for their money.
Madame Wanda's troupe of trained
Kngllsh coach dugs gave an almost human exhibition of Intelligence when being pal through the numerous variety
of tricks which ellciled the applause of
the audience.    Two  of  the dogs  closed
their performance with a boxing exhibition, which was truly remarkable. The
Smlletta sisters, contortionists, and
Sniilctta brothers, horizontal bar and
aerial trapeze artists, were the chief attraction of the circus programme. Fer-
alla, in the aerial trapeze musical act,
was first class and one of the most skillful exhibitions of the kind ever put on
In Calgary. Roars of laughter iwere
caused by the troupe of Ave very funny
clowns who entertained the audience
during the Intervals between the main
Items on the programme."
