Mr. J. K. Anderson, deputy minister
"f agriculture for the province of British Columbia, has again furnished tho
Canadian Forestry Association with a
detailed report nn the tires that occurred In British Columbia last season,
with a partial estimate of tlie value of
the forests destroyed. Though the
season was very dry In some parts of
the province, the destruction of forests
by fire was, on the whole, nol great,
when the great extent of Ihe province
is taken Into conslderallon. Railway
locomotives nre a constant menace to
Ihe forests through which they pass,
and as there la apparently some illill
cully In punishing the offenders under
lhe act now In force, II Is hoped that
It will lie so amended thai railway companies may be compelled to take belter precautions, and be made liablo for
tin.' full amount of the loss caused by
the negligence of their servants.
The comparatively small number of
llres last season was due in part to n
better observance of the bush tire no-

with the laws relative to foresi llres.
and prospectors anil miners, as well as
lanchers and settlers, are acquiring
the hnblt of pulling out their ramp
fires, Instead of leaving them to smoulder. More care is also taken by those
clearing up land to prevent fire from
spreading lo the adjoining foresi. The
preventive measures taken by fire wardens and their promptness In dealing
with fires hnve done much to restrict
the loss from this cause.
The exceptional heat, and dryness of
the Hummer was generally thought to
he the cause of the unusual number of
forest fires In the Kootenay district,
where Ihey caused more damage than
for several years past. As the greater
portion of the district is unsettled, It
Is Inqiossiblo to arrive al any accurate
estimate of the loss of limber, though
ii must be considerable. Fires caused
the deal met ion of government roads
and bridges In this dlslricl to the ex-
lent of 19,000, The efforts of the lire
wnrden doubtless reduced the threatened lire losses. A system of super-
vlBion Is recommended by tho ngenl
which will permit of officers getting
early to lhe lire, nnd 11 Is suggested
lhat provincial iiolice officers be authorized to make expenditures up to
$25, without walling for special authority.
All the government agents wore asked to atate tho causes of llres, so far
as known, and to suggest remedies.
Their replies nre naturally somewhat
similar, and only a few of them havo
been quoted. The hgenl ul Nicola
mukos ii suggestion that seems well
worth, acting upon. It Is that 0 special
effort should be made lo Interest 1ho
Indians In foresi preservation, A clr-
euiur addressed to nil the chiefs could
not fall to cause the matter to be discussed In their councils, and If In tho
different sections one reliable Indian,
at least, wore appointed, witli Instructions to ncl promptly when a lire started, and even given some authority to
lake preventive uctlon, much loss
nilghl be avoided. Ignorance and carelessness on the part of the Indians
doubtless cunse many llres, but It
should not be very difficult to tench
them to he more careful.
Material Reconstruction

Condemns Use of American Flag
for Advertizing and Decorative  Purposes.
New York, Juno 11,���The Times today says:
"Afioi ii prolonged vlsli to England,
the continent and Egypt, Bishop Potter arrived here on Hie White Star liner Celtic yesterday, lie appeared lo
be in excellent health, and talked freely of his trip abroad to the reporters
who met hlni down lhe bay and al the
pier. The bishop explained whal he
really meant when he told the Pilgrims in London that the American
Bogle In Cairo 'hud Ills toll between
his legs; He nlso said he feared there
was nol any too much affection between Ihe United Slates and Hngland.
'You depend on II, there is no love lost
between the Iwo countries,' said the
bishop. 'There Is, I fear, a good deal
or gush about It. The Br.'tb) i idea of
Ihe I'nlted States Is very vague. Th��y
have certain impressions that ar.' unjust, nnd-when I arrived over there on
my way out I told them so. The more
acute and serious do no- think we are
a lot of grafters, but thai we are very
easily templed by gain. It Is the gen-
oral irowd lhal thinks of us otherwise.'
"Then the bishop exp ainod 'the

Jewel shines In Ihe crown of Great
Britain than her achievements in

wiih Lord Cromer, and In lhe emus"
of our talk ll was mentioned how seldom the Oriental changes.In mind In
spile of material changes. To this observation Lord Cromer made Ihis profound and aslule reply: "Yon can

asked thai Ling be allowed to tell his

First  Day's  Sermons  Introductory and
Expressive of Hope for Mutual
Help and Harmony.
Rev. It. Newton Powell, newly chosen pastor of lhe Methodist church In
Nelson, addressed his congregation
yesterday for the first lime. Both
morning und evening sermons were in
the nature of Introductory greetings,
especially the morning address, a synopsis of which by lis author follows:
Text; Revelation, 4-1: "After that
I looked, and behold, a door opened in
The first five chapters of this book
constitute the introduction to what is
lo  follow.
This iu r Iductlon naturally divides
itself into throe parts, ouch Jiarb a
separate Wslon
The text relates lo lhe third vision,
���he vision or the open dcor. Through
Hiis door opened in heaven John is
shown "ihiugs which must be hereafter." The vision therefore becomes a
revelation of Ihe churches' future according to the purposes of God.
It cannot be Irreverent lo And in all
thin magnificent imagery our parable
for this first service.
We stami together in God's house
today us pastor and people We look
not about us at the work lhat waits to
be done, tbe hu��'nns we must together
share; i-ueh considerations WbuJd tend
to depress aud ..iscourage us. How
wisely are the details of our future
bidden from our eyes!
We look not within upon our heart's
condition; introspection is sometimes
wise, but always possible of harm.
Even Paul, the giant apostle, when he
allowed his thoughts to turn iu upon
himself, wrung his hands und cried:
"Ob, wretched man that I am, who
shall deliver me?"
Together, in 'these first hours of worship, we who have been Joined together look beyond aud above, fixing our
eyes upon lhe things revealed and that
Bhall be, as seen tbruiigh tills open
door of heaven.
We are not unused to this phrase���
an open door; we have often met It in
commercial life, in the history of treaties between foreign nations. It has
become familiar in missionary literature, and even in God's word we find
it here and there. It is Ihe door of
God-given opportunity.
One writer has said, "Every crisis of
our history is in God's good purpose a
door opened in heaven." The vital
question for us this morning is, "is-uiis
arrangement that brings us into such
close and sacred relation a door opened In heaven?" I 'trust we may all of
us be able to so view the matter and
draw whatever of hope and courage
and purpose from such a view.
For myself. I have not sought this
association. 1 am here today because
I believe it is God's way and purpose
for me. I have broken association
wiih n church where I have spent three
of the happiest years of my life, and
where I looked forward to spending
another such year. I do not repent
ihis; I am glad lo come. I only long
and pray that we may at once be united on this question, and realize as we
siand together thai we so stand by Ihe
appointment of God, nnd through this
door llius opened see such ihlngs na

John saw ami 1 the. glories and dazzling radiance of heaven many things
--many mysteries beyond our comprehension, bul s. me that are eloquent
with meaning.

full answer lo earth's direst need. To
Moses. Elijah, Isaiah, and all through
God's wind, this assurance has always
boon the sufficient answer to man's cry
for relief.
2. John saw "There was a rainbow
round about (ho throne." The rainbow
of promise, the bow of hope. There
mny be storms of weeping, lint tho glo-
i.v of God's presence shall ever produce
the rainbow of hop;-.
;i. John saw "Four and twenty elders

There is victory In tho future.
Of New Zealand Dies
Very Suddenly
Had Just Completed a Visit to the
Principal  Cities  in
Sydney, N. S. W., June 11.���Richard
John Seddon, prime minister of New
Zealand, died from heart failure this
evening aboard the steamer Omstrey
Grange, on which he had embarked
this morning to return to New Zealand, The Omstrey Orange put back
into Sydney. Premier Seddon was 111
years old. His death was totally unexpected. He had been in Australia
Blnce the 1st of May. He came here to
consult Alfred Dekln, the prime minister of Australia, on Important questions, mainly those concerning the
New Hebrides. He visited the principal towns, making speeches and receiving deputations on various matters
interesting to Australia, such as colonial preference and alien immigration.
He made a speech at Sydney on Saturday, declaring It was a suicidal policy for tbe colonies to send trade to
foreign countries, thus enabling them
to strengthen their navies. "Trade,"
he said, "should go to the mother country to assist In strengthening the British navy." When Premier Seddon sailed this morning he appeared to be in
his accustomed health.
Premier Seddon wns one of the most
remarkable characters in modern political life, and the courage, moderation and persistence with which he
clung to bis adopted theories of reform
are remarkably commended in the
unique political and economic conditions In New Zealand today. He was
at different tlm^s premier, colonial
treasurer, minister of defence, minister of education and minister for immigration In New Zealand. Born In
Eccleston. Ijincashire, in 1845, he removed to Melbourne in ISM, and after
an unimiiortnnt but brief buslm ss en-
reer there, he removed to New Zealand, where he entered pnrliamnt in
1879. 11 had a thorough training as s
niechauiral engineer, and was also an
associates of the American Institute of
Mining Engineers. He was a life member of the Geographical Society of California. He pnlnsed through Cnnada
and attended the conference of colonial premiers In London In 1897. and
again in 1902. His speeches on both
these occasions were replete with facts
and figures of the greatest interest to
the other colonial premiers and people, and to the people of Ihe mother
country as well.
Good   Program    Rendered���Hour   Will
be Changed for Convenience.
The second Sunday afternoon band
concert of the season attracted a large
crowd to the lake park yesterday afternoon. While recent difficulties have
seriously handicapped the band, an excellent program was well rendered, the
concluding selection, the serenade from
"l.urline," by W. V. Wallace, he exceptionally pleasing.
The band went to the park on Ihe
2:20 cnr. and began the program Immediately on arrival. Consequently
the program was over shortly after
8:30, while people weie still arriving
on the cars. The late comers wero
naturally disappointed to hear only the
last strains of the serenade and the national anthem.
Bandmaster Irwin states today that
herenfter the concerts will be timed
to last, from about 3:30 to 5 o'clock.
The band Is practicing new music
steadily, and hopes to give creditable
concerts during the summer;

Serious Disaffection Among Repatriated
Odessa, June 11.���Since the commencement of the repatriation of the
troops who took part in the war with
Japan. 152,000 men. Including the Russian prisoners from Japan, have landed
here and have been distributed throughout the Interior of the country. Tho
most stringent precautions are observed In order to prevent the slightest Intercourse between the returning
troops and the townspeople in consequence of fears of mutinous demonstrations, as it was undeniable that
Ihe troops coming here were largely
disaffected. The spirit of disaffection
was even more noticeable among the
officers than among the men. The former frankly expressed the opinion that
If parliament can hold Its own until
the spring it will be able to count on
the army to support Its demands.
Several  St. John, N.  B��� Sawmills Are
Idle, and Likely to Remain so
, for Some Time.
St. John, N. B., June 11.���One thousand men are idle here as the result
of the strike which was declared In
the sawmills last evening. The deal
pliers asked for an advance of 30 cents
per day, which was refused, and in
consequence of this action seven mills
closed. There has been talk of this
for same, lime, and.onlx. three weeks
ago one mill was closed for several
days, but this strike is of much more
Men nre scarce, but the times are,
good, and thus both sides are in a good
position to fight. The outlook Is that
a majority of the mills In St. John will
remain closed for many weeks. Although It Is only the deal pliers who
are now asking for more money, ail
the rest of the men desire Increases,
and their wants will be made known

Are on the Way.
Quebec, June 11.���Over 3,000 Immigrants from Europe arrived here Saturday morning, and more are on the
way by the Empress of Britain, the
Victorian, the Canada and Lake Michigan. Four thousand embarked on
the steamer Liverpool on Friday, and
these will reach Canada at the end
of the coming week. Besides these, a
contingent of nearly 3.000 Is expected
in Montreal on Monday from New
York, at which port they are expected
to land on Sunday. All second-class
and steerage accommodation on vessels plying the St. Lawrence for weeks
to come has been spoken for, with the
result tbat thousands of British and
contingent immigrants for the Canadian west have been obliged to book
their passages either by wire to New
York or Boston.
Problem Well Solved.
Li'illi, Scotland, has a solution of tho
unemployed problem. The municipality is aiding persons out of work to
emigrate to Canada. Over 400 persons
have lately been so aided. This settles
"what to do with the vvorkless" but is
assisting in depopulating Scotland aud
thus vexing another problem���the emigration question- fast becoming serious In parts of Scotland. So many
have lately left Glasgow for America
that hundreds of vacant houses are to
be found all over the city���a condition
never before equalled In Glasgow.

Hill vs Granby Decided
Against Plaintiffs
Holds That Deceased Was Guilty of
Serious Neglect���Second Failure of Damage Suit.
A very Important decision by Mr.
Justice Duff was received at the Nelson registrar's office today. It Is tile
finding in the case of Hill vs. Oranby,
a claim by the widow and children of
an employee of the Oranby company
for damages by the death of the husband ami father.
The deceased was In charge of an
ore train In a tunnel. He remained
standing, Instead of stooping, as the
car enlered Ihe tunnel. He was struck
on tlie head and killed.
Afler several postponements the case
was tried In Nelson on February 19,
1900, by Mr. Justice Duff and a special
Jury, S. S. Taylor, K. C, appearing for
the plaintiffs, and A. D. Whiteside, of
Greenwood, for the comvany.
As the evidence was finished, the
trial judge withdrew the case from the
Jury and non-suited the plaintiffs. Mr.
Taylor Immediately made application
under the Workmen's Compensation
Act, tbe action on common law
grounds having failed.
His lordship* again non-suits tbe
plaintiffs, holding that the deceased
contributed to his death by his own
acts, and that the company neglected
nothing that a prudent and careful employee  should have required.
The following are extracts from the
"Serious neglect means, 1 have no
doubt, something more than contributory negligence; otherwise the phrase
Is purposeless. Further, 'neglect'
points, 1 think, to the failure to do
some specific act which, in the circumstances, ordinary prudence requires
the injured person to do; or the doing
of some specific thing which, in the
circumstaLces, ordinary prudence requires the ordinary person to refrain
from doing, and its sense is perhaps In
that respect more restricted than the
meaning which should, In the like circumstances, be attributed to the word
���negligence.'       ,
"It is, of course, impossible to give
any precise description of the meaning
of the phrase, 'serious neglect' I cannot, however, agree with Mr. Taylor's
argument that It necessarily Imports
the quality of deliberation."
After illustrating from judgments of
Lord James of Hereford and others,
the judgment proceeds:
"It seems to me that any neglect Is
serious neglect within the meaning of
the act, which, in the view of reasonable persons in a position to judge,
exposes anybody, including the person
guilty of it, to serious Injury.
"In the present case the deceased
person was, In my opinion, clearly
guilty of neglect in remaining standing on the frame of the truck after
the train entered the shed projecting
from Ihe mouth of the tunnel."
Water Everywhere, but Not a Drep to
Frankfort, Ky., Juno 11.���The Fake-
stand distillery broke down yesterday,
and more than 14,000 gallons of whiskey was lost. The whiskey made Its
way to Benson creek, only a few feet
dlstnnt. Farmers living along the
bunks of the stream later noticed hundreds of fish either floating lastly on
the surface or else leaping playfully
ou the shore, altogether unafraid, of
the presence of the men. The farmers
caught them by the bushel, and it was
not till the news of the break at the
distillery became known that tbe mystery was solved. The fish had become
intoxicated. The loss to the distillery
will reach about $25.01)0.

Thero arrived In Loudon on Friday
ui ins: week thfrty-tbreo tralnloads of
over 33,000 Lancashire people as a
delegation to p rotes I ugutnsi tlie proposed educational biil now before the
British parliament. This is probably
the largest lobbying delegation recorded in history, and suggests an invading aiiny. Tlie question of reilglous
Instruction in the public schools has
been for Bome years n burning one in
(iicai Lni.iin, and its solution has involved tho hii- ql ai least two governments without apparent progress iu the
direction of harmony between the contending factions, The established
church in England has had for years
its parochial or board schools, ut which
leWgious instruction according to the
tenets of thai church was regularly
imparted. The non-conformist bodies,
dissatisfied with their status under
these conditions, Becured tho privilege
of building and equipping their own
nt n<mis itini conducting the education
of their children al their own expense,
the parochial schools still receiving
their main support from tlie public
treasury, Three years ago an amendment to the act was passed compelling
the non-conformists iu pay their share
of the taxes levied to support the parochial schools aud forcing them lo
maimain their denominational schools
it their own expense or abandon them,
I'll is gave rise io the passive resist-
ince movement which spread all over
England ami Waits, the dissenting religious bodies permitting their property to be sei/i'd and Bold al public auction, Home of them again ami again, lu
meet the taxes imposed by the law.
We saw the other day the name of
one man whose |novelty had been
seized and sold seventy-eight times for
refusal to pay lhe parochial or school
uix. Thi re can I"- no iloubi that the
passive resistance movement was uti
important factor in ihe reconstruction
of tho government at the lasi elections,
nnd lhe present government has proposed some amendments to the school
law, which probably account for the
delegation whlcb arrived In London lasi
Tlie chief resolution of their meeting
in Albert hall recorded "an emphatic
protest against the education bill on
the ground thai ii is destructive of all
forms of religious Instruction in the
elementary Bchools, and contains the
Btatemenl thai "the onlj Line safeguard of religious education * * ���
is n continuation of the denominational
schools." As the draft of ihe bill is
not before us, wo refrain from comment upon the substance of these resolutions; but tho action of the delegates shows that In England the members of the established church have
very stnng, and, doubtless, consolen*
tious, convictions on the question of
the Importance of the proper religious
training of the youth of the land. That
the     members     of     non-conforming
churches have equally strong convictions has been amply demonstrat d,
and thai these two factions���for we
can call them nothing else���do nol
agree, is a matter of serious history.
Nor are all the members of each faction a unit iu their disagreement, local
circumstances In many cases making
the difference, Thai they will ever
reach a common ground of settlement
under any pioposal to continue religious instruction in ihe schools is too
much to hope, and it would appear that
the complete secularisation of the public schools is the shortest way to the
solution of ihe difficulty. Whether II
i. the wisest way is not equally open
to demonstration, There are many
who stoutly maintain that the home
and the church are the place for rell-
gious teaching. Doubtless in a thoroughly Christian country that assertion
could be made good, but one of the
perils of our religious liberty as a pro-
testant people lies in the religious indifference of a large portion of the
population, How far ihe state is justified in assuming authority and enforcing religious teaching is a debatable
matter, and one on which tin re will
be serious difference of opinion for
many years to come. That the "Tight
Utile Isle" will have to settle the question for herself can no longer be disguised, and in doing so ji will be hoped
that she will iind u method that will
be a safe course for other nations to
Our esteemed morning contemporary on Saturday attempted In Its editorial lender to set the Colonial right oi\
the question of "better terms for British Columbia" in Its discussion of Premier -Mcllride's Visit to Ottawa to meet
the provincial premiers with the members of the federal government. This
is from the Colonist:
"If we are to assume that Premier
McBride will go to Ottawa to attend
the conference of provincial premiers
with members of ihe federal government, with the preconceived idea thai
the LaurieV government \.ill do nothing for this province, we fancy he will
make a very poor ambassador, and, iu
the best interests of the provinc ���, he
should absent himself from the meeting."
And Ihis is from the News: "The
Colonial is deliberately attempting to
mislead ihe public in ihis matter. To
lead Colonist articles on the 'belter
terms' question, one might be induced
io believe thai British Columbia wa*
receiving less consideration al ihe
hands of the Liberal government than
it did when lhe Conservatives were in
<-nice at Ottawa. Anyone al all c m-
versanl with the facts knows this to
he absolute'y fa'se. Apart from the
question Ot increased subsidies, the
public accounts prove conclusively that
Itritish Columbia has fared Infinitely
better under a Liberal administration
than It did when the Colonist's friends
were in control of federal finances."
Will the Dally News please tell us,
if it would have us believe ii sincere,
why, In the last Dominion bye-election
in Victoria, after the cabinet shuffle
had transplanted lhe Hon. William
Templeman from the senate to the
house of commons. Mr. Templeman
had only one plank In his platform of
appeal to his constituents? Only one,
and thai one "better terms for. B. C."
from the Ottawa government! II was
with this slogan that the Hon. Mr.
Templeman secured his election. What

News   Notes   and   Happenings    Around
Grand  Forks.
(Special lo   The Daily  Canadian.)
Grand Forks, .hint. 11.���It has been
ascertained that among Lhe many gold*
copper proneitien lhat will be working
good crews of minei-H this Hummer, in
Kianklln camp are the following: The
MeKinley mine, bonded to F. August
Hclnze for some $2()!>,U0u, will be working about 40 men; the Glouuter group,
bonded lo the Dominion Copper Company for $110,000, will workf soma 86
men; the M. S., bought by A. K. Smith
& Co., will work sjme 2it men; thi
Maple Leaf group, bunded by 11. W.
Warrington for $60,000, will work 2ii
men; the Mineral Hill group of eleven
claims will work 25 men at least; the
Banner group, bonded by Grand Forks
parties, will likely be working 10 men;
the Jumbo group, consisting of three
Claims, will be working some 16 men.
There are also, in addition to these
groups, fully 50 other properties of
merit owned by single Individuals that
will be working this year, all striving
to have their claims on a shipping basis by\ the linn* Ihe two railways now
contemplated are built up the .North
Frank Williams, a mining engineer
representing a Birong Colorado syndicate, arrived here yesterday and proceeded to Franklin camp to inspect th<*
various rich showings iu that region.
Before coming here Mr. Wi ii.im.s was
looking afler some valuable holding!
for his company near Marysville, B. C.
At the Provincial Kag'es' convention
held at Revelstoke on the Bth Instant,
John Temple, proprietor of the Oranby
hotel here, was elected provincial vice-
her  off to  an  unknown suitor.    This
does not meet with her approval, and
she confides her trouble to the profes-
Bor of the female academy, and he
agrees to help her defy her guardian.
Running, uway, both join a band of
wandering minstrels, and in their company tour the continent. Thus It hap-
pi ns they meet the guardian and the
hitherto despised suitor. The fates
Will have 1'. thai the young couple dutifully fall In love with each other, little
dreaming that Is the result so wished
for by the guardian. The fun of the
trip largely binges on the escapades
of Flipper, a jockey, whose sweetheart,
Alice, in her lonely yearning bethinks
herself of Flipper, and engages him
to net as a guide for the party. He arrives, whereas, to his dismay, he finds
himself impressed to do duty as a continental steersman. What he does not
know of the continent and foreign languages, ail lhe editions of Baedecker
would not suffice to answer, and so
there Is plenty of fun for the audience
and Ihe party.
The musical numbers are a prominent part of the presentation, and are
bright and tuneful. Ti ddte M; Numara
will have Ihe role of Flipper, and the
rest of the children will be well cast.
The company arrived In Nelson last
night and took all the available rooms
al the Hume and Btrathoona hotels.
The number In the company Is between
forty  and fifty.
Torrey's Patriotism.
An Ottawa despatch pays: "Considerable feeling has been aroused over
an incident In connection with Ihe
forthcoming Torrev-AJexander meetings. It Is over the hymn books. The
Ottawa committee bought COO copies
of the British edition of the revival
hymnals, but Dr. Torrey has wired that
he would not come to Ottawa unless
the United States edition of the Tor-
rev-Alexan ler hymnal was used. Needless lo say, the message had the effect
of a bomb thrown into the evangelistic
camp here. Many strong opinions were
expressed. The Ottawa members were
indignant at the national affront. The
Pembroke    members     coincided,    and
The   new  pastor  of  the   Nelson  Methodist church,  Rev.   R.  Newton and   Mrs. Powell.
