Canada's   Veteran   Organist  and   Tutor
Includes Nelson  in  His British   Columbia   Tour.
Dr. F. H. Torrington, the noted organist  of lhe Metropolitan church    in
Toronto, und who has been called the
father of miiHlc in Canada, arrived in
lhe city on Saturday night, and fs tho
guest of Mr. and Mrs. T. Parker, of
Hall street. Dr. and Mrs. Torrington
have been making a tour of the western provinces and conducting musical
examinations for the pupils of the Toronto Conservatory of Music, of which
the doctor'Is managing director.
Seen by a representative of The
Canadian last evening, he expressed
himself as being delighted with the entire west, but more particularly with
British Columbia, and because of the
.scenic and climatic attractions he has
prolonged his visit far beyond the
original time limit set for the trip.
"One of the most Interesting feat'
iires of the trip." said Dr. Torrington.
'is the privilege of meeting in lhe
most out of the way and unexpected
places the pupils who have at one time
and another passed through my bands.
I have had telephone messages, both
���hurt and long distance, nnd have been
pleased to personally meet former pn
;>tis, all of whom are giving a mosl
excellent account of themselves."
"Are you seeking to increase ihe attendance at the conservatory, doctor?"
asked ihe newspaper man.
"No. that Is not our object. We be
Here in assisting lu every way the de
vclopmenl of talent in its own locality,
We are not canvassing for onr own
business. We want lo see Canada develop her musical lalenl at home aa
much as possible."
Then tho doctor drifted Into reminiscences, and told In a most Interest'
ing way how he came to enter tlie rail-
ileal profession at lhe early age of ft
rears, A ticket for a violin raffle had
come Into the possession of his mother,
uni she by good chance won the    In
ttrument,   she brought it to the sleep
ng room of the youngster, who "snt
on the side of ihe bed in exceedingly
brief costume." and made his IntUal experiment wllh the realned bow. That
was Ihe beginning of his career, which
.'ins been ji phenomenally   successful
me, lie spent several years In Hos
Ion, but  could  not  he Induced to    live
permanently outside of Canada, and ho
returned to Toronto to lake up his old
md loved work.
Most pathetic was his recital of the
trngtc death of his mother, nml from
pathos lo wit, humor and keen observation the doctor ran the conversational gamut to the Intense Interest of
his auditors.
Dr. and Mrs. Torrington are both
loud of Isaac Walton's hobby, and with
their family will spend several days
on Kootenay lake.
It Is the city's loss thnt there is no
organ in Nelsou upon which Ihe doctor
might favor the citizens with a public

Olivia   Dahl and  Gina   Smith  at  Sher
man's Opera   House.
Under all ordinary circumstances,
such an artiste as Olivia Dahl could
only be heard in the world's greal centres of population and of art A peculiar combination of circumstances,
however, gives the rare treat of her
music, to the small interior communities of this province, and It is sincerely
to be hoped lhat the opportunity will
be appreciated at its worth. Miss Dahl
had lost heavily In the San Francisco
horror. She. had recently come under
the professional management of C. H,
Gibbons, who last season brought tier*
rardy, tbe world's greatest "cellist, lo
lhe coast, and who is himself a loyal
Hritish Columbian*. She could not. afford. In consequence of her California!!
experience, lo enjoy the usual summer
lay-off of the professional singers. Slut
.wanted to see something of Hritish Co-
lumbla while in this country. And so
It came about that the present Utile
lour was proposed, in connection with
which the people of Nelson and their
regatta day visitors will enjoy a concert by MIhs Dahl and her associate
artiste. Cina Smith, a brilliant pianisto
aud daughter of the famous Kraii Anna
Slroin-Smilh, on the evening of Friday,
tlie 87th instant. It is to be hoped
that Miss Dahl will be greeted by a
crowded house, for there are few
greater singers in the world today, and
the critics are agreed that she will be
the next notable musical sensation, or
"discovery," as the Impresarios term
ii   in America's art circles.
New Strike is   Mads on St. Eugene at
And now comes the good news that
a big body of ore has been struck in
the 2,000-foot level of the St. Eugene.
This new strike Is ln about 500 feet
from the 200-foot shaft level. In drift
ing from this level a full face of ore
was encountered. This is another proof
that the St. Eugene is becoming better with depth.
So well is the company pleased with
the property that several important
Improvements, it Is said, are being
planned. One is the enlarging of the
concentrator and the adding of a lot of
new machinery. Another is the sinking of the shaft to a considerably greater depth. This will mean the employment of a hundred or more additional
men. The Leader says Moyie seems
destined to yet outrival Itossland .oi

Triumphant Year For Leader of Opposition
Persistently Prosecuted Enquiry Into
Expenditure oi Public Moneys-
Majority Tactics.
Ottawa, July 17.���On Friday, July 13,
the governor-Kenernl appeared in the
senate chamber and prorogued parliament with the ukuiiI ceremony. Thursday was the da**- set for the closing
but the government measure for the
repeal of the act providing pensions for
retired ministers did not reach the senate In time to allow the three readings
to be taken with the uutial interval. It
was only by a suspension of the rules
that parliament was able to close |>e-
fore Saturday. When the house opened
Sir Wilfrid Laurier stated that all the
government bills were ready. Yet the
house hud been tn session for four
months before this pension repeal bill
was submitted.
It haB been a triumphant year for
ihe leader of the opposition. Mr. Borden has had behind him a loyal and
united party, and the party has had a
resolute, resourceful, dignified and honorable leader. Mr. Borden rose to ev*
ery occasion which called for the quail-
lies of leadership. Several times he
caused changes In the government program, and the legislation of this yct*r
is improved in many details through
his vigilance, clear Judgment and splendid business qualities.
But this session vill be remembered
for other things more than for any legislation accomplished. It was a year
of exposure. More scandals have been
brought to light during this session
than in any other since the union of
the provinces. From early in March
until July opposition members have
steadily and persistently prosecuted
enquiry into theh expenditure of public
money, the management of the public
domain, aud Into charges of plunder
ami graft in public business. No session of Canadian parliamentary history
has seen more faithful work done in
committees of Investigation. The enquiries have heen pressed in the face
of many difficulties. Documents have
been delayed or withheld. Witnesses
have refused to answer questions, and
have been supported In their refusals
by ministers aad government majorities. Investigation into several transactions has been burked, sometimes indirectly and two or thre times by a direct vote of the house, where a party
majority refused to allow the enquiry.
Nevertheless the record is long and
The Disgraceful  Record.
Among the deals and scandals exposed or partially revealed during the
pnst session are the following:
The Saskatchewan Valley land deal.
The Atlnntic Trading Company contract and the group of scandals connected with It.
The Bronson nnd Ray concession and
ex-Speaker Bolcourt's connection with
Tho fielfnas exposure and the consequent refund.
The scandal of the Ice-brenker
"Montcalm's" silver plate, with the
overcharges and the refunds conse
quent on exposure.
The thin red  line eleotlon  frauds.
The fake homestead scandals.
Tho scandalH of the Arctic steamship expedition,
The scandals of tho St. Joseph. Dis
raelt and (Irand Valley wharves.
The Leopold, alias Lazarus, labor bureau scandals.
The Arundel Printing Company contract   exposures.
Thes  learner Kestrnl accounts.
The Merwln scandals.
The Georgian Hay survey supply
swindles, and the attempted fur coat
bribery connetceil with them.
The  Magnetewan lighthouse.
The deal of the grazing leases.
The timber lease scandal.
The Moncton land purchase deal and
The Philip Wagner outrage.
The Laurler tower collapse.
The steel files deal.
The Prince Albert election frauds by
Dominion officials.
The above constitutes a list of maladministrations surpassing any similar
period In the history of Canadian governments.

Members of parliament who fled to
Viborg, Finland, apparently Intend to

tinned in the outskirts all through trie

hand. During the night over a thou-

New York, July 23.���Russell Sage,
the aged financier, died at his home
on Long Island yesterday. The immediate cause of death was heart failure. He would have celebrated his

Perishable Produce Waits from Saturday to Tuesday for Shipment
to the  East.
The agitation of the fruit growers
has not by any means subsided. The
arrangement of time of the steamers
at the end of the week was particularly unfortunate. The steamer Moyie
arrived In Nelson Saturday afternoon
at 3:30, having passed the fruit ranches much too early to pick up the fruits
of Saturday's picking. There was no
call made anywhere on Sunday, and
the fruit that arrives today cannot go
east until tomorrow morning. Consequently all fruit picked after the Moyie passed on Saturday has had lo wait
on the wharves at the ranches or ln
Nelson  until  Tuesday  morning.
Some of It has spoiled, and some of
it has been sold at a sacrifice locally;
very little could be kept for shipment
easi   as desired.
F. ,1. Samnums shipped oul fresh
fruit on Saturday morning, nnd received a wire this afternoon from .1.
K. Annnble to the effect that tt arrived In Winnipeg in excellent condition. Yesterday morning a big supply of fresh flowers was sent, and tomorrow morning more flowers, packed
In moss, nnd the selected trout, enclosed ln a block of ice, will be forwarded.
Mr. Sammons is greatly pleased that
the shipments, direct from Nelsou, of
flowers and preserved fruit has been
so successful, as he fears that the
later snipments of fresh fruit, under
tho condition created by the changed
policy of the C. P. H. company, will
be very dlappolntlng, if not an absolute failure.
Many besides the fruit growers, who
are directly Interested, feel that It ���
is a great pity, even If an absolute necessity, that the generous accommodation hitherto extended to the fruit
growers, and which has contributed
more than any other single circumstance to their prosperity and the
great influx of settlers, with Its consequent enhancement of the values of
land, should be withdrawn at so critical a moment, when its continuance
for another week might have enabled
the district to score a splendid triumph   over   all   competitors.

Contractor Charles McAllister, who
has the contract for grading through
the Volcanic townsite, has received Instructions from the Kettle Valley line
solicitor to continue bis work through
this land. R. A. Brown, the owner, has
delayed the work, owing to a settlement not yet being arrived at, and the
matter will now have to be arbitrated
on, the present work being authorized
under an order of the court. One good
feature about the work on the Kettle
Valley line is that the laborers all
appear to be satisfied with their work
and wages, and almost no sickness
whatever exists In the various camps.
It Is reported today that Chief Engineer Kennedy, of the Great Northern,
has stnted that the work of grading
on his railway to the Pathfinder mine
will be started Immediately.

Big Strike at Index,
Reliable Information has been

strike ln the Index mine, on the south
fork of Kaslo creek, which Is the pi-op-
erty of Mr. J. W. Hanna, Captain Campbell and others of Kaslo.
The vein, which Is over two feet In
width, bas been proved to a depth of
over 200 feet. It is two feet ln width,
with well defined wallB, and carries native or dry silver In the form of wire or
strings. For over a foot the ore Is so
rich that It assays fully 800 ounces per
ton. The news of the strike has caused
great excitement In the neighborhood
of Kaslo, and congratulations are being showered upon the fortunate holders of the property, . *
A specimen of the ore is on exhibition at the offlce of The Canadian.
Centre of Interest to Coast
Boat Club Men Amused at Suggestions oi Local Critic That
Program be Varied.
Preparations for the regatta on Friday and Saturday afternoon are as
complete as they can be made before
Friday morning. A final committee
meeting fs called tor this evening at
S::t0 at the club house.
As a caretaker is on duty at the club
house this week who Is not familiar
with the personnel of the club, members are specially requested to carry
their membership cards with them and
show them when requested.
The crews of Victoria and Portland
are expected to arrive ln Nelson tonight, and put In three days' practicing before the contests. The Vancouver men will probably be In tomorrow night, although no definite word
has been received to that effect.
Members of the Nelson Boat Club
are Intensely amused at the advice
which haB been tendered them by a
local sporting authority. They concede that the Intention is wholly
kindly, but tbey would explain tbat
the list of N. P. A. A. O. events on the
rqgatta program Is official, and not
variable at the discretion of the home
club, however sagacious may be the
guide, philosopher and friend whose
services are gratuitously offered.
The junior and senior singles and
doubles cannot be combined, but, as
already announced ln The Daily Canadian, flfe'wlhners of the Juniors go
Into tbe singles as a matter of course,
and a contest for each event ts certain.
The regatta will be followed by
many at the coast, where the newspapers are giving it much attention. The
following from tho pen of a resident
of Nelson, formerly of the staff of
the Victoria Times, appears in that

lake, will be the scene of the next
aquatic contest for the supremacy of
the Pacific coast. The course over
which the oarsmen of Portland, Vancouver, Victoria and Nelson will hold
their competition Is one of the best
in the world, being at all times free
from high winds and surrounded by
lofty mountains. At an. altitude of
2,000 feet above the sea level, tho air
is refreshing, and the'stretch of water
over which the boats will pass affords every one along tlie shores and
in the numerous launches and row-
boats owned by the residents of the
metropolis of Kootenay a good opportunity to view the races from tho
start to finish.
"Few persons residing on the coast
realize the wealth and beauty of the
rising young city which ia now acknowledged to be the commercial centre of the West Kootenay country. Located on the shore of a body of water
naviguble /or 200iinlles the city hns
a system of waterworks second to
none tn the province. The electric
light plant and 'street railway is fnr-
nisued with electricity from the power works at Bonnington Falls, wnere
Lhe incorporation is installing a plant
at a cost of $200,000. Steamers and
launches glide here and there, bearing
fruit from the near-by ranches and
passengers to the many sylvan retreats on both shores of tbe lake.
Railroads run In connection with the
palatial steamers and direct lines connect with Spokane, the Boundary
country and other centres on both
sides of the line. The sewerage system is good, ansl within sound can bo
heard the numerous waterfalls which
are used for generating power and
light for the fnctories and business
houses. With public and high schools,
seven chiircl|es. four banks, good hotel
accommodations, and tho best of fishing and hunting, the future of the city
Is aesifrcd. A tourist association,
with a permanent ofllce In the city,
is distributing literature and answering correspondence from all parts of
.ne world. The fruit grown Jn Nelson and tho vicinity Is unsurpassed,
and It is the Intention to make exhibits at the various fairs and exhibitions
throughout the cast. The visitors will
be entertained In a most appropriate
manner. Excursions and banquets
will be in order, and the association
will be taken in hand by reception and
other committees. The people of Nelson own a large number of launches,
and the shores of the lake will be ln
gala attire during the regatta. All arrangements are complete, and tho
next meeting will be witnessed by
thousands of visitors from the neighboring republic and residents of tbe

The study of politics and <>f political
economy has little Interesi (or the average citizen because yeara of expert*
once under the party system have deluded him into the opinion that such
BUuJects are only Interesting to the active politician. In the opinion of Uie
average citizen the profess ion of politics is not unlike every other profession, In that certain men who happen
by (he choice of the people to be In
possession Of tho reins of power, and
being paid by the country for their services in the various administrative
functions which they discharge, their
work is regarded as so much professionalism. Experts In their departments they may be, and what they do
may be well done���In fact, admirably
done���hm to the average citizen the
amount of interest he has in political
subjects is hounded by a more or less
Intelligent knowledge thai this is so.
The political history of any country
is, however, of vastly wider and deeper interest, and a knowledge of the
principles and purposes which have
.actuated men, their success or failure
In their attempts to realize these, together with the Incidents which always
are associated with political activity,
are, when once understood, among the
most Interesting of studies. Thus the
genesis aud history of party politics,
ihe lines of demarkation which distin-
pulsh one party from another, tlie dif
erence between those who are in political power and those who are out,
are matters upon which the citizens of
every democratic country should be
well informed.
The Conservative party in Canada
lias hail, as everywhere, certain well-
defined principles, and for these it has
consistently struggled Blnce the fedora
tion of ihe Dominion and before, Can
ada for the Canadians, or empire within empire, has lieen the ideal of the
Conservative since tho Dominion se-
cured Its integrity; and Whatever could
be done hy legislative enactment or executive administration to wor!( out bis
ideal has been consistently done, or, at
least, attempted hy the Conservative
party. The I.literals, ou the other
hand, have noi   heen originators.
They have, whenever they have
been in power, contented themselves
with a half-hearted imitation of Con
servative methods, a compromise be*
tween election pledges and the Imperative demands made of them by the
deputations and delegations which
have waited upon the rulers and assisted them in guiding the ship of state.
In saying this, we have no wish to depart from the strictest statement of
the facts that Is possible. The student
of the political history of Canada
knows that It is true.
It Is somewhat discouraging, therefore, to have some of the Liberal papers calling out for the abandonment
of party lines in politics in Hritish Columbia,   To have them pleading for a
return to the old coalition methods
which wrought such havoc in the prov
Ince not so many years ago is only to
herald abroad how little there is to
hope for from the Liberal party as it is
constituted in the province ai present.
It is as much as to say thai, not liking
the Conservative administration, we
must abandon hope. It Is like advising
the abandonment of the political methods which have made Canada what she
is. and what have made the empire
what it is. It Is like the confession of
a moribund party that, being a disappointment to iis friends, has now no
other plea than that to have good government we must go out of both parties and select the executive heads
from among the best men of both.
No such confession has ever been
made hy the Conservatives, nor will
such ever be made. The Conservative parly in Canada, while In (he
ranks of the opposition at present,
are pleased with that measure of Its
principles that have been copied al-
mOBt without modification by the party
in power. The Conservative party in
British Columbia is satisfied wllh the
achievements of its leaders during the
few short years they have been In
Charge of provincial affairs. It is true
that there were many and peculiar difficulties to be over overcome when lhat
party took the responsibility of governing the province. It Is true tbat
party lines were not well defined and
party feeling was not strong. It is
true that political affinities had been
discovered and pads formed between
members of both parties which il has
not been easy to break away from. All
these things have combined to make
the path of administration anything but
an easy one, but wiih the general results we are sure there can be no serious fault found, and criticism where
it exists is more a partizan than a conscientious affair.
What the loyal and province-loving
citizen should do is to acquaint himself with the political history of his
adopted country, It should be read,
not in the disjointed and partizan representations of a Liberal party press,
but from authentic sources written by
the calm and dispassionate political
historian. When this is done there will
be no disposition on the part of the
intelligent ratepayer either to seek the
abandonment of parly politics or the
retirement of the Conservative administration.
The terrible accident on Saturday
night a few miles south of the city on
Ihe S. !���'. & N. railway brings home to
us the perils incident to railway travel
and the awful fate that too often befalls the traveller. The recent derailment of a train at Salisbury was made
almost International in its importance
because of the palpable failure of the
company's employees to obey the rules
of the road. There seems to be some
doubt as to where the responsibility
for the one of Saturday night lies, but
If It was in the power of human beings
lo prevent the frightful loss of life and
injury to body and mind which resulted, the responsibility should be fixed
somewhere. Was the rolling stock of
tho company's train in good condition?
Was the train running a curve at too
high speed? These will be questions
asked by every one, and there should
be the most ihorough investigation.
While monetary compensation for a life
lost in accident, even when it can be
shown to be somebody's fault, Is a poor
salve to wounded feelings and bereaved
hearts, the heaviest penally should be
inflicted unless the element of chance
was wholly predominant.   The sorrow-
stricken   friends  of  the  deceased   will
have   universal   sympathy.
The prize list for the Nelson fair to
be held on September Hub to 21st has

years ago if any man bad predicted
thai Nelson and district would become
more famous for horticulture than for
mining his saniiy would have been seriously questioned; bul such has been
the decree of fate.    We wish Nelson

The Lethbrldge Herald, a weekly grit
paper, has tlie following on British Columbia politics:
"Il is said lhe provincial elections In

tlie end of ihe year, li ihe electors do
nol trounce tlie McBride governmenl.

Ihe secession of western Canada, owing to the large influx of Americans
into this country, need not worry thai
