T. P. O'Connor'* Sketch of Hon. Rich,

T. P. O'Connor lu P, T. O. for June
sih. Iiuh uk hla lending article .suiuu coin,
tnenls on "A Canadian Dinner." It was
u dinner given by Mr. Kumar Greenwood, M. I'., tu a number of Cunudiuu
public men In London ul the time of tbe
conference. The following extracts will
be of particular Interest to Hrlllsb Columbiana:
"And now lo tbut curious und Interesting little dinner parly which Mr.
Greenwood gave the other night. It was
to the ministers of several of the prov-
ines of bis native Cunuda. You may
think that you have exhuu.ted the powerful personalities of Canada when you
huve known Sir Wilfrid Laurier, Sir
Frederick liorden and a few others of
whose names you huve been reading in
the newspapers. You ure quite mistaken. There are niauy legislature* lu
Canada, and each province hus, besides
its legislature, Its own cabinet, with a
prime minuter and all the oilier great
officers we have lu our cabinet at homo.
Do not run away with the Idea that this
meaus there ure too many parliaments
and too many officials in Canada. For
Cunada occupies a larger amount of
ihe space of North America than do the
United States.
"I allude to this Cunadlnu dinner because It brought home to me, even more
than I realized already, what a tremendous heritage UiIb Empire has In that
country. The mind almost staggers before Ihe gigantic possibilities of Canada's future. I sat next to Mr. McHride,
the prime minister of British Columbia.
Here you have an excellent specimen
of the provincial ruler of Canada. They
build their men In those young countries���at lenst, the men who get to the
front'���on large lines. Mr. McBrlde, Is, I
should say, over six feel. Ills face, still
looking almost boyish in its freshness,
with a strong jaw, fine dark eyes, the
mobile mouth of tho speaker and the
politician, Is surmounted by white hnlr,
tlie one murk, porhiips, of the strenuous
life through which he must have passed
to have got so high at so early un age
It was when you found yourself face to
face with un embodied llrltlsh Columbia
like tills when you begun to realize
what a Canadian province meunB, nnd
whut aro the duties and repsonsibllllles
of a provincial prime minister. Have
you any Idea of Ihe extent of British
Columbia? Well, here Is what It Is. 1

the Irish League directory assembled
here, under the presidency of John Redmond, and sut for four hours today. The
official report records the adoption of
several important resolutions. Hy the
lirst of these It was resolved to "Inaugurate without further delay a great
aud really virile movement to win that
full national self-government which
must be secured before the foundations
of Ireland's future prosperity can be
The resolution affirmed the country's
demand for nn elected legislature and
executive, responsible thereto, and urged a speedy and united expression of
the national determination to secure
these rights. The directory wus empowered to organize a series of great
public demonstrations to this end
throughout the country, and all tho
members of the parly were called upon
to energetically devote themselves to
lhe promotion of vigorous and sustained
agitation throughout the coming nut-

Its confidence In Ihe parliamentary

Prealdent   Shaughneaay   Optimistic  on
Crops and Railway's Future.
Winnipeg, June 26.���Sir Thomas
Shaughnessy was here for a few days
conferring with Mr. William Whyte on
the reduction of grades, the securing
of more locomotives and rolling stock,
aud other matters In connection with
the Canadian Pacific. He left yesterday
afternoon ror Minneapolis where he will
meet the directors or the Soo line. He
expects to be back ln Montreal by Sunday.
In the course or an Interview Sir
Thomas said tlio present quietness in
Winnipeg was only natural. It was just
what occurred at times in all lines or
commercial enterprise, and was not
"Do you expect that your new Soo-
Spokane line will take much of the
traffic of Ihe States to the const away
from the other roads across the line?"
he was asked.
He replied: "We expect that It will
be a factor In transportation, but there
will be so much truffle through the
Western States that the other roads
will hardly notice what we take."
"What will be the effect on tho Canadian Pacific In the West, from the en-
erancu of the Hill lines and the completion or the Grand Trunk Pacific?"
"We are still going to remain In business, nnd will endeavor to get some of
Ihe traffic. We aro not going to give
The crop situation, Sir ThoinaB said,
he had looked'into quite carefully with
Mr. Whyte, since he had been in Winnipeg. Tlie prospect for the season ho
considered to he rosy. He wns also satisfied there would he no great farm labor scarcity tbls year.
Speaking of the comparative cost of
electricity and steam ns motive power
on the railways, Sir Thomas discussed
nt length the technical poinls which
would be encountered In the chungo.
"With the present volume of business,"
he snld, "I thing the cost or electricity
on the mountain grades at present
would he somewhat greater than steam.
The condition, however, would he reversed with the great Increase ol traffic
which will come. The generation of
electric power by water will not be a
very big Item, and I think we will have
plenty of water power where we will require It. The Introduction of electrical
power will not do away with tho necessity of tunnelling In some of the grades
In the mounlnlns. We have nlready let
contracts for somo of the work, or
course, many or the grades will also
be cut down ench yonr."
What Next?
Ottnwn, June 20.���Montreal 'longshoremen  have  officially   notified  the
minister of labor that they will not accept the award of the hoard or conciliation and arbitration In the recent strike.
The next step In the dispute Is uncertain, but the men may again go on
strike. The award gave the men practically everything Ihey asked.

New* of Grand Forka.
Grand ForkB, June 2C���Just across
lhe Kettle river rrom Franklin City, on
Ihe North Fork of Kettle river, Joe
Jeldness and Alex. Otnon, two old time
prospectors, have made a. phenomenal
strike on their copper properties. The
ore body on one of these claims has
been uncovered fo^ many reet and has
exposed a rich body or high grade ore.
It is said tbat tbe owners or these
claims have refused several good offers.
A general feeling of satisfaction Is
felt here over the fact the tho local
lodge Knights of Pythias, through their
Grand Chancellor, Mr. Jeffrey Hammer,
hus presented a very handsome gold
locket, appropriately engraved, to Joseph Snlvely as a slight recognition of
his bravery in rescuing Mr. John Hutchinson from the water or tbe Kettle
river during the recent high water.
A recent assay from the C. P. R. prop
erty. on Welcher mountain, ran as high
as $43 ln gold alone. Tbls claim has
been developed by various shafts and
open cuts and the owners, MesBrs. Horner and Shaw, are making extensive
preparations to still rurther develop
this claim this summer.
On Gloucester creek the White Bear
groug is showing ep well. The group
consists of some half dozen claims and
is owned by a syndicate of Grand Forks
business men who will work the group
all summer.

France Alarmed at Show
of Disloyally
Danger From Soldiers Causes Greater Uneasiness Than Revolts
of Wine Growers.
Paris, June 26.���The government's
hope that the return of Marcelin Albert,
leader of the wine growers' movement,
to the south after hlB Interview with
Premier Clemenceau would result in a
change of attitude on the part of his
followers, has  been   blasted.
The federated committees have decided to maintain the civic strike and the
"redeemer," or "apostle," as he Is variously termed, has no alternative but to
surrender himself to the authorities in
accordance with his promise to M.
Clemenceau. Nevertheless, the excitement in the disturbed territory continues to Bubslde, and the government
believes that barring some unfortunate
which may again Inflame the people the
latter will gradually come to their
senses and realize that a prolongation
of the present situation will only increase their misery. The government,
now, apparently, is quite as much concerned about the Insubordinate spirit
manifested among troops as the attitude
of the wine growers, for in spite of the
efforts to minimize them, new incidents
showing the lack of discipline in the
army are occurring dally.
' The government seems to have awakened to the ne��essity of dealing sternly
with the demoralization engendered by
lhe Socialistic anti-military propaganda,
and tbe press commends the decision of
the government to exile the mutineers
of the 17th Infantry and to postpone indefinitely the bill providing for the abolition of court martinis ln time of peace.
The position of the cabinet grows Increasingly difficult and M. Clemenceau's
sole object seems to be to weather the
storm until the summer vacation of parliament affords a breatlng spell. Tomorrow, when the premier replies to
the interpellation on the general policy
of the government, is likely to decide
whether he will be able to overcome the
difficulties In his path or fall in his attempt to do so.

following resolution was unanimously
Whereas, It has pleased Almighty
God, in his infinite wisdom, to remove'
from us, by the hand of death, on Friday, June 21st, 1907, our beloved brother, Sir Knight Achilles J. Rainvllle:
Resolved, that in this time or affliction we do tender our heartfelt sympa-
they to his father, and would, in so trying an hour as this, remind you that
consolation must come only from God,
who, in His infinite goodness and mercy
will comfort and uphold you.
In the first hours of so great a bereavement you will find It hard to see
any comfort tn such a dispensation, but
ever remembering the splendid character of our dear brother, we may later
be thankful that the lost one was spared
any further Buffering, and that his spirit
was taken home without the painful
Interlude of any longer Illness.
We will not, therefore, by useless condolence, open afresh the wound of your
grief, nor will be say a word more,
where words are In vain, but that it
Is some comfort to us all that the time
is not far distant at which we are to
deposit in the same cerement our sorrows and Buffering bodies, and to ascend In essence to an estntlc meeting
tn that Castle Hall above, with the
friends we have loved and lost, and
whom we still love and never lose
May God bless you and support you
and yours under so heavy an affliction
Is the prayer or Nelson lodge No. 25,

this resolution be sent to the press,

the foundation for the prosecution or
Wm. D. Haywood, tbe defence today

that the jury will abandon the conspiracy Idea and their client* will go free.
While the defence Is trying to break
down Orchard's story by sheer weight
of testimony the state Is pushing each
witness as far as possible to show that
they are subject to Impeachment later.
The large number ot witnesses to be

Speculation as to the probable date
of the next Dominion general elections
ie common now in the press and in
private. The Laurier government was
last returned In the fall of 1904. By
the constitution, therefore, the present
parliament may live till near the end of
1909. But advantage of the fifth year is
Very seldom taken by a government. It
has been doue only twice since Confederation. It would, under ordinary circumstances, be a fair presumption that
the next elections would come in the
fall of 1901s. But there is a strong and
apparently general impression that an
appeal to the constituencies will be
taken at a much earlier date. Throughout the country both parties are nominating candidates and beginning prep
aration for the campaign.
The general expectation of an early
appeal is of course based upon the obvious reasons why such au appeal
should be taken. The scandals that have
been unearthed during the last two sessions in nearly every department of the
administration have shaken the confidence even of Liberals in the present
government. It is a long time since
Sir Wilfrid Laurier has had a cabinet
without vacancies, and two of the most
Important portfolios of all, public works
and railways and canals, are now temporarily held by the heads of oilier departments. Even in the interest of the
Liberal party a thorough reorganization
is necessary, and that can hardly be
accomplished without a general election
Sir Wilfrid had to go outside of the
Senate and Commons for Mr. Aylesworth. Now the Ontario Liberal organs
are urging him to invite (1. P. Ciraham.
the party leader in the provincial legislature to enter the Dominion cabinet
Such advise really involves a confession
that the party's representation ln par
liament   does   not   afford  any   cabinet
Apart, however, from the necessity
of strengthening his cabinet, Sir Wilfrid must read the warnings coming
from all quarters of the necessity of
setting his house in order, Every important gathering of representatives of
religious bodies that has been held this
year, has made an earnest protest
against the wholesale corruption in the
administration and in the election
methods of the machine, and an appeal
to the leaders of both parties for cleaner
men and methods. Sir Wilfrid Laurier
dare not disregard that appeal. The
honest element in his own party will
compel him to put a stop to the many
grave abuses whose existence can no
longer be denied.
Recognising these facts the Liberal
organs are taking stock of the situation
and strenuously endeavoring to persuade themselves that there is no reason to fear from the result of the appeal
which they admit cannot long be postponed. Like the proverbial lawyer with
a bad case they proceed to abuse their
opponents. It is a poor augury for Liberal success when a government which
has commauded a decisive majority for
eleven yean, can offler no better plea
ior an extension of confidence than the
charge, in some cases at least an unfounded charge, that three or four of
their opponents have been guilty of
questionable financial dealings, and that
two otners are religious bigots.
it is not a question of the personal
popularity of Sir Wilfrid Laurier and
It. L. Borden. Mr. Borden is undoubtedly a stronger man now than when he
was first chosen as Conservative leader.
Jlr Wilfrid Laurier's personal popular-
.ty probably stands as high now as ever,
and perhaps deservedly so. But it cannot be denied that his choice of colleagues has more often than not been unfortunate in the extreme. His cabinet
of 1S96, formed of the Liberal leaders
of all the provinces, represented a fair
average of administrative ability. That
cannot with any appearance of truth
be said of the cabinet as it is constituted today.
Another frequent claim of the Liberal
press, made rather diffidently perhaps,
as if from consciousness of its Impudence, is that the Conservatives have no
policy. And what policy, pray, hftVQ
the Liberals followed? Even the projecting of the Grand Trunk Pacific was
only an imitatfon of the Conservative
policy which resulted in the building of
the first transcontinental road. The
Liberals have never disavowed thir old
policy of free trade, though they have
nut dared to attempt to gfve effect to
it. They have Ceiled to secure trade
concessions from the limed States and
given up the attempt. They have
not reformed the civil service and they
have not reduced the national expenditure. Tbey have done nothing in aii
these eleven yean but eoutluue ihe policy they attacked. Even Sir Wilfrids
latest motion for a fast ocean service
is but a revival of Sir Charles Tupper's
.scheme of 1896 which was allowed to
The Conservatives still stand by the
National Policy which has given Canada
progress and prosperity. The Leant
must be of men and methods. The peo-
ple of Canada must decide whether the
National Policy shall be carried out by
its authors or its detractors, and whether they approve of the character and
conduct of the ministers to whom Sir
Wilfrid Laurier entrusts the interests
and the reputation of ihe country.
It cannot be regarded as other than
unfortunate that the second general
meeting of the 20.000 Ciub should have
failed to attract a quorum. Enthusiasm
for the objects of the ciub is not only
essential to the attainment of its purposes, it is the only excuse for Its existence. The apparent lack of it���we
believe it is only apparent���is probably
due to an unfortunate tendency on the
part of N'elsonites to delegate their duties to others. If a few- are willing to
work, the many are quite content.
The definite reply of W. J. Brandrith.
secretary of the British Columbia Fruit
Growers' Association, to a question telegraphed to him as to the application of
his remarks on the damage to fruit this
year by frost, will make welcome reading. It is an impartial and absolutely
unbiassed acknowledgement by one who
knows that Kootenay has one decided
advantage over all the other fruit districts of the province, including the one
in which Mr. Brandith resides.
The speech of Hon. R. McBride
at the Colonial Institute was characteristic of the man. He modestly discerned having any important message
to deliver to the people of England,
praised the Dominion ministers, and
then gave an admirable expression of
the sentiments of British Columbians
towards the Mother Country and the

The Daily Canadian
Appreciation of Canadian Rockies��� Described as the Switzerland of
Sir William Mulock points out that
Switzerland, a country with a population or 5,000,000 people, has no Indua-
trfflfl worth speaking of, and that it practically "lives on ItB scenery." Sir William, on his recent trip to the West,
wus much Impressed with the scenic
beauties of BrlUil Columbia, and hy the
iiiimense pus.,-hi .ties of tourisL trade
That Western Canada Is a fair rival
to epic Swltzedrland, worn old by the
feet of centuries of beauty seekers, is
a HtiuiiKe idea to many of our country
men who are within coirfparatlvely easy
access of ll.
But there is a certain group of tho
hitman fumily which has its representatives In all times and countries, a
group whose individuals have the pioneer spirit and who respond hy inHtinct
to the strange challenge of high places,
These are "tho mountain cllnthers,"
professional and amateur. To some of
these who have written with enthusiastic sympathy we owe brilliant gllnipBea
or the wonderland known as the Canadian Rockies.
One of the most adventurous of such
spirits, who haB also the gift of graphically communicating his impression is
Mr. .lames Outran,. In his book which
grew out of his camping and climbing
there, ho presents a vivid picture which
gives even a casual render a thrill for
"the. heart  of the Canadian Heckles.'
Me turns from a reminiscence of
Switzerland to say: "Hut though Its
scenery is unchangingly beautiful nnd
the familiar Alpine monarohs retain
forever the affection* of the mountaineer, yet his bouI will crave���and rightly

tlon, a first ascent.' He turns most
naturally, therefore, to the great continent of America, where he expects to
find plenty of new things and generally
finds them on the largest scale. The
United States, with its enormous area
and limitless array of Nature's mightiest works and treasures, might well expect to possess some counterpart to
Kurope's pleasure-ground. Hut, hunt
as we may amid the upland solitudes
of Colorado's sea of lofty mountains,
the noble peaks and canyons of the
California Sierras, or lhe Icy fastnesses
of mi. Shasla and the Cascade Kange,
Ihe mors closely they are studied, the
more inlrinni<:ally are they found to
differ from Switzerland. Bach contain;-,
some of the splendid features that are
all comhfned within tho scanty limits
of the little European Republic, hut the
wondrous glacial fields, the massing of
majestic -ranges, the striking Individuality of each great peak, the forest
areas, green pasture lands, clear lakes,
and peaceful valleys are nowhere found
hnrmoniouHly blended on the western
continent until the traveller visits that
section of the Rocky mountains which
lien within the wife domain of Canada.
"Following the Continental watershed from Colorado northward, the
ranges of Montana begin to display the
characteristic features which culminate
in the Switzerland of the Western Hemisphere. The rounded or gabled summits here give place to broken pinna-
Hi*.-, precipices rise ln frequent grandeur, enormous seas of Ice pweep from
the Alpine heights Into the verdant heart
of pine and spruce-clad valleys, gemmed
with emerald and turquoise lakelets.
and silvery waterfalls and sparkling
rivulets unite In producing a series of
absolutely perfect mountain pictures.
Two variations from the Kuropean
prototype are certainly conspicuous.
The one, that in this country of superlatives the ranges and peaks are multiplied tenfold. The area is vastly larger
and the mountains are more closely
packed together, but, as a consequence,
the individual peaks, with some notable
exceptions, are scarcely so strikingly
characteristic as their Helvetian relatives. The other obvious difference lies
In the wildnesg of the Rocky mountain
region. Except where the railroad, with
Its intruding wheel of civilization, has
caused the springing up of one or two
small hamlets and an occasional section-
house, even along the highway of transcontinental traffic there Is but little
sight of man. The graceful chalet, the
climbing herd of cattle, the musical
tinkle of whose bells chime faintly
through the distance, the sturdy tolling
peasant, here are not. Nature alone
holds sway, rugged and wild and beautiful. And yet the seeker of these
temples of Nature, whether to worship
from afar or to explore the strenuous
foot the innermost recesses of the wooded valley or the topmost pinnacle of
some white summit, whence a bewildering panorma of matchless mountain
scenery Is unfolded before his delighted
gaze, need not endure a single privation
or discomfort in his quest. In all the
luxury of modem sleeping cars the
traveler is rapidly transported into the
very heart of the mountain world. Much
of it may be enjoyed without, passing
from the sight and sound of the great
railroad artery, where charming hotels
and rustic chalets keep him ln comfort
during his stay and combine with the
unsurpassed scenery to lengthen It to
the utmost limit.
"But to view the grandest mountains
and obtain the finest climbs, It is necessary to camp out for a short or long
period, as the mode of life Is one of the
most delightful of experiences, the necessity enhances the pleasure of one's
holiday. It adds to all the varied
charms of scenery a free and healthful
life, long journeys through primeval
forests, scented with the sweet fragrance of the balsam-fir".
Of Banff, Mr. Out ram says: "Banff
Is a place for leisure rather than the
strenuous life. Pleasant drives and
rides and walks abound; the river invites laziness in a canoe, and many a
delightful hour may be spent amongst
the shallow lakes or threading the narrow waterways amidst the trees and
bushes. Weird little Sundance Canyon,
the wooded valleys of the Spray, Lake
Mlnnewanka, and various minor altitudes can easily be reached by rail, and
the Hot Springs demand a visit and a
swim In the warm aerated depths."
To Lake Louise Mr. Outram took a
friend one day and heard from the
friend the comment: "I have travelled
in almost every country under heaven,
yet I have never seen so perfect a picture in the vast gallery of Nature's
masterpieces as you have brought me
to this afternoon."���Toronto Saturday
Some  Gentlemen  Prefer  the   Cutaway
to the Negligee Sack.
The load!ng# cutaway coat for this
season is one of the most pleasingly
artistic garments ever designed by that
master of designing, the president of
tho Semi-ready company. To some
business men the sack Is too negligee
for propriety, and the cutaway frock,
with or without the heavy hip Haps,
meets their requirements.
The Semi-ready coat has the handsome rolling collar, with wide lapels
and blunt peaks, which Is a distinctive
feature of the season's styles. While
these suits are sold In the (20 lines,

Good  Words for Joe Carter.

"It was a good stroke of policy on the

in Spokane. Hi? will make good there
and bring much business to the company. It is the Kootenay's loss, but It
is Spokane's gain."

What the Advance Man Says.
The biggest Instrumental feature ever
introduced on parade or on the stage
concerns the Cotton Pickers' band of
minstrel musicians led hy Robert
Leach, the colored Creatore with the
"Dandy Dixie Minstrels," which will be
the attraction at Sherman's opt-ru house
on Monday, July 1st. This clever band
of musicians comprises one of the most
formidable features of the Dandy Dixie
Minstrels, having been selected for
their Individual ability as soloists and
the great success with which thy met
during the all-summer season of the
Dandy Dixie Minstrels al the Wistaria
Grove, atop the New York theatre last
summer. Campbell Bros., the black
aristocrats, head the company of 40
comedians, singers, dancers and special-
ty performers.
