Boston, Mass., June IS.���An international phase has developed In the case
of Ihe Sully children of Maiden, who
were taken to Denver by (heir aunt,
Mrs. Bella Fonwlck. Through tho efforts of Sir Mortimer Durand. British
ambassador at Washington, aud Capt.
W. W. Wyndham, British consul here,
papers have been obtained from the
British government calling for the arrest of Mrs. Feiiwlck on the charge of
having kidnapped Reila Sully from
Maiden on February 11th, and Mabel
Sully from Montreal, Que., last year.
When it was discovered that Mrs. Ken-
wick was keeping a lodging house In
Denver, Governor Guild Issued requisition papers, and an inspector and John
Sully, a traveling salesman and father
of the children, went to Denver to
bring them back. Governor McDonald
of Colorado refused to honor the Mas
sachusetls papers. The only remaining course for the father was to appeal
lo the British government, of which ho
and the children are subjects,
Massachusetts officials received word
yesterday that the United States off!
Cars will be given the papers and or

Fatal  Result..
San Francisco, June IS.���As a result
ol the lockout anil the trouble existing
between the ship-owners snil unlou

wus shot and killed und three wounded
lust night. The dead man is Andrew
Kellner. The shooting occurred when
a launch occupied hy about 15 union

Discusses the Meat Packing Scandals
Says United States is Responsible
for Conditions in Business
Positively Revolting
I^indon, Bng., June 18.���The Times
of yesterday says: Mr. Carter, senator from Montana, Is quoted as saying,
with regard to the efforts of the Chicago packers to defeat legislation with
tbe object of reforming the conditions
of their establishments, that if they
are wise they will abandon the struggle, adding: "If Mr. Neill's report is
made public, the packers might just as
well throw their meats Into Lake Michigan or use them for fertilizing. There
would be no sale for canned meats either here or abroad. I know what Is
to be in this report, and if It comes out
with the force of nn official government
document, its effect will be tremendous." Mr. Neill Is one of two commissioners sent by President Roosevelt to
Investigate the conditions of Ihe Chicago packing establishments,
Mr. Champe Andrews, counsel of the
Medical Society of the county of New
York, and a leader in the movement to
put an end to the poisoning of the
people by means of adulterated foods
und patent medicines, writes as follows:
"The exposure of the methods of the
beef trust, though horrifying, fails to
carry Its full significance unless viewed as incidental nud accidental exposure of a general system of adulteration and deception in food ptodDCtsi
Those familiar with tlie subject know
that the greed of many producers of
food and medical products In the United
Suites is responsible for conditions in
business that are positively revolting.
Fraudulent weights, infringements of
copyright and labels, and cheats and
frauds of similar characters are the
smallest parts of these evils. Substitution of base and injurious ingredients
In bolh drugs and foods Is practiced on
a gigantic scale. Dangerous dyes.
chemicals and adulterants are used
wherever they can be substituted for
more expensive materials. The one
idea is to sell lo the public ns base an
article as possible for as high a price
as possible. That the public Is gradually awakening lo fhe need of organization in its own defence is shown by
tlie call for a conference of public-
spirited men and women and representatives from philanthropic, charitable,
and religious bodies generally to meet
In New York In the autumn to discuss
ways and means to prevent the adulteration of food products and the sub
stitution of drugs nnd unrestricted sale
of opium, alcohol and poisons of many
sorts In patent medicines. This movement has been taken up by the Academy of Medicine In New York, the
Civic Union of Philadelphia and many
oiher prominent organisations of the
country. Though no public announcement hns been made as yet in ihe
press of the United Slates for various
reasons, it bids fair to he a reform
movement ns far-reaching In its plan
nnd scope us tiny reform movement of
the Inst 1(10 years. The outcome will
undoubtedly bo lhe formation of a national society for Ihe preservation nf
public health."
Mr.  Justice  Morrison  Sees No  Ground
for Amandla   Appeal.
At the close of the Amandin murder
(rial at tlie spring assizes In Nelson,
W. U. Ross. K. ('., senior counsel for

points of law, raiseil in connection with

Future  of Grand   Forks as a Railway
Centre Assured.
(Special to the Daily Canadian.)
Grand Forks, June 18.���A flying machine or air motor Is the latest novelty
for Grand Forks. Andrew Thompson,
a machinist at Cascade, who is the inventor, is now building his airship, and
expects to have it completed In a few-
days' time. In conversation with your
correspondent Mr. Thompson said:
"My air inolor will lie worked by n
small gasoline engine. An airship
large enough for one man will be 0
feet high, 8 feet long and 4 feet wide,
and will weigh about 200 pounds. One
this size will carry at least COO pounds.
It will have two wheels, which will be
propelled by the engine. The top of
Ihe motor will be covered with strong
canvass, which can be arranged to
serve the purpose of wings, and lower
the ship gradually should anything go
wrong with the machine. I expect to
travel al leust fen miles an hour with
ease, and will go over a mile high. I
will make my first as'cnsion at Grand
Forks in about two weeks' tlmo. I
have been working on this invention
for the past eight years, and have now
made official application to have it
patented in several countries." Mr.
Thompson is an old resident in the
Boundary, and had a blacksmith shop
in Grand Forks a number of years ago.
The destiny of Grand Forks is now
thoroughly established as the greatest
railway and smelling centre in British
Columbia. When the two railways
now under construction are completed
ti]) the North Fork, there will be six
railways operating through Grand
Forks���more than any other town In
the province can boast of. These railways all open up very rich territory,
Ihe Inhabitants of which will be
brought within easy access to Grand
Forks. In addition to this, the smelting industry nt Grand Forks will be
greatly enhanced in the near future by
the building of at least one more smelter, either by the C. P. R. or the Dominion Copper Company, as it Is now
:i recognized fact that the Granby
plant, although treating over 3.000 tons
of ore dally, will be quite Inadequate
to treat all the ores from the numerous
shipping mines. It hns been stated on
good authority that within the next
IS months there will be at least 25
shipping mines between Grand Forks
and Franklin camp. The necessity of
having that many shipping mines can
be readily seen, ns n daily tonnage for
the Great Northern and Kettle Valley
line railways up the North Fork of nt
least 3,000 tons will he required In order lo keep these roads employed. So
It is beyond n matter of speculation
that in a few months Grand Forks will
actually have six railways and two
eight-furnace smellers.
UNSEASO .       AND       GLOOMY
Varying     Prospects,    Including    Great
Britain,  France,  Italy and
Eastern Europe.
Washington, June 18.���Tho European
crop situation is told in the following
June summary of conditions abroad. Issued by the department of agriculture:
Unseasonable cold nnd gloomy weather prevailed In the northwestern part
of Hurope, especially In Great Britain
and France, throughout the greater
port of May. There have also been
brief spells of remarkably low temper
attire In parts of Italy nn.l Spain. In
eastern Burope, on tho contrary, notably In the great grain-producing provinces of Russia, the month has been ex-
oeptlonally gonial and spring-like. In
northwestern ISurops tlie growing crops
���already backward from the adverse
weather conditions of March nud April
���have not made the progress desired.
Their development, however, though tt
hns been retarded by hick of sunshine
nnd wnrmili, has had Ihe benefit of
abundant and general rnlnfnll. A month
of seasonable weather. It Is believed,
would render conditions on the whole
satisfactory. In southern and central
Europe there is little In the ngrlcultu-

Democrats and Revlution-
isls May Unite
Revolutionists Say Rupture With
Government Cannot be
Longer Delayed.
St. Petersburg, June 18.���The const!
rational democrats seem almost ready
to throw in their lot with the revolutionists. The popular agitation Is so
great that at n caucus lasting three
mornings the question of changing the
party tactics and abandoning any lur-
ther attempt to postpone an open rupture with the government was seriously debated. Ministers Reditcheff and
Naboukoff, leaders of the constitutional
democrats in the lower house, led the
radical wing, urging the absolute necessity of keeping pace with the revolutionist movement, and insisting that
unless the people moved forward to
battle immediately they would be overwhelmed  and  left stranded.
Professor Miiukolf, M. Vinavor and
others counselled caution, saying it
was not yet time to bend to the storm,
but the radicals were in the majority.
The Novoe Vreniya today says that
the conslitutional demucrais have act*
ually resolved to break with tbe government within a few days, but M.
Struve, editor of the osvobojdonle, informed the Associated Press that no
decision had been taken. He admitted,
however, that the leaders' plans were
secret. Many of the liberals fear a
rupture, and regard the contemplated
step as a grave error, claiming thut the
constitutional democrats cannot hope
to keep step with the advanced radicals,
who al meetings held in the suburbs
of St Petersburg last night not only
condemned the lower house of parliament, and characterized the constitutional democrats as traitors, but even
denounced the group of toil. M. Alls-
din wns hissed because he tried to explain the absurdity of the contention
that the house must demand that the
emperor summon a constituent assembly. The meeting refused to listen to
his statement that the government be
asked to sign its own death warrant.
Constituent assemblies, he said, were
constituted and not summoned by the
The streets of Cronstndt are filled
with troops, and the well-to-do inhabitants are hurriedly leaving the island
on which the town is situated.
St. Petersburg, June 18.���No fresh
news wns received here today from
Bialystok, and none of the newspapers
can get a word directly from their cor-
respondents there. The correspondent
of the Associated Press must have arrived from St. Petersburg, yesterday
morning, but has not been heard from.
Nothing has been received here from
tho parliamentary commission to Bialystok to Inquire into nnd report upon
the massacre of the Jews. It Ih evident
that the authorities will not allow any
despatches to be sent from the terror-
stricken town, which is regarded as
ample proof of lhe horror of the situation. Persons who tried to leave Bialystok were killed at the stations, and
others who succeeded in reaching tlie
open fields east of the town were rttu
down by dragoons. There seems to be
no hops of slopping the nttneka. The
number Ol victims Is large.
Warsaw, June 18.-Tlie chief nf police of Warsnw today issued a proclamation warning the people ugalnsl the
efforts to provoke racial hutred. nnd
stating ihat every attempt at rioting
will be mercilessly suppressed by force

London, June 18.���Tho British battleship Ilamlllles wns assisted back to
Sheorness today, having been In collision In the channel with Ihe battleship
Resolution.    The latter was not dam
aged, but the former must be docked
for necessary repairs, principally to
her propeller. So far as known, the

Canadian  Metal   Company   Take   Few
Days for Reorganization.
The mines of tbe Canadian Metal
Company, the Blue Bell and United,
near Alnsworth, were closed down this
morning for cleanup and reorganization. The men employed in the mines
have arrived in the city, and are quartered, most of them, at the Tremont.
The period of suspension will be
very brief, and the whole force will be
re-eng;iged and work resumed.
A representative of The Daily Canadian called at the company's offices
this afternoon aud asked J. E. Harrington, director, what the close down
portended.   The reply was:
"Nothing at all. It will last only for
a few days. We want to clean up and
change some of the methods of work-
ing. The men will be at work again
before the end of the week."
Will be Discussed In the House Tomorrow.
Ottawa, June 18.���The Sunday observance bill will be taken up in the

It would not be proceeded with this
session.   This, however, is contradicted.
Russian Government Recognizing Principle   of  Partial   Expropriation of Lands.
St. Petersburg, June 18.���The long
debate on the agrarian question was
ended at this morning's session of tbe
lower house by Michael Stavoch, of
Orelln, In which he virtually declared
that tho government wns recognizing
the principle of partial expropriation
of private land holdings in order to
satisfy the peasants, but applying lor
peaceful co-operation between the
house and the government in arranging
a settlement of this great question. It
was then decided to send the agrarian
question to a commission, although the
members in the lobbies of the house
talked nf little except the Bialystok
massacre and the increasing gravity
of the situation. The subject wns
not brought up during the morning session, the members preferring to uwalt
the report of the commission of Inquiry
sent to the scene to investigate.
George Henry  Fisher and  Sailor Jack
Temporarily  Disappear.
Two familiar figures appeared in the
city police court this morning, "Sailor
Jack" Garner and George Henry Fisher.
Their familiar haunts in Nelson will
know them no more for many days.
There were four cases In all. Wing
Leo reported having compiled with Ihe
requirements of the fire bylaw, and Ihe
charge was dismissed with a fine ot $5
nnd costs.
One stranger was fined $5 and costs
for drunkenness.
George Henry Fisher, who was re-
leased about a fortnight ago, when his
friends paid his fine, ndmitted the soft
impenchinent of having quenched his
thirst not wisely, but too well. He
told a moving tale of guileless simplicity nnd cruel fortune. Having lived on
buttermilk for several days, his constitution was weakened, and one drink,
reluctantly taken at the importunity of
kind but indiscreet friends, overpowered him. Tho magistrate sympathized,
nnd thought (10 days' enjoyment of the
hospitality of Warden Lemon would
revive George Henry and Improve his
physical capacity.
"Sailor Jack" wanted lo go to Knm-
loops to labor In the green fields and
on the sunny slopes where cattle pasture. Ho is weary of the tossing of the
waves, and of the uncertainties nnd
temptations of life in large cities. He
will pay the authorities $."��� for the care
taken of him, and will leave for Kam-
loops by tonight's train. Chief Jarvls
will represent the city at tho railway
station to wish Jack a long farewell.
Coal Mines Resume.

Supply in Sight for La
Plata Nines
Bruce White Reports New Phot
Giving Satisfaction-Will Increase Working Force.
The prospects of the La Plata Mines
Company are probably much brighter
than they have been described by the
ultra-cautious manager, Captain T. H.
Trethewey. With unlimited bodies of
nre of high grade, a new and efficient
concentrating plant and careful and
economic management, the owners
have every reason to feel gratified with
the outlook.
Bruce White returned last night
from a visit to the property. To a representative of The Daily Canadian he
"The concentrator is working splendidly, and everything about the mine
is in good shape.
"The new vein in No. 5 level Is the
best ever found on the property.
Enough has been done In it already to
prove Its value and extent. There Is
now proved to lie abundance of good
ore in every part of the mine.
"There are now CB men employed, 46
of them in the mines. Ten more will
be added to the force shortly, and they
also will be put to work at develop
ment and taking out ore.
"Mr. Trethewey told you there was
ore tn sight for three years. He Is always too cautious and conservative Id
his statements. I estimate that the
amount of ore actually in sight at present is enough to keep the mill running
at full capacity and the present force
ot men employed for at least ten years.
Mr. Trethewey will be down tomorrow. He may think my statements too
big, but I'll stick to them."

headed iu llle .News as follows: "Green
May Have lo Go��� Dunsmuir Unwilling
to Accept lilni as One oi iiis Minis.
ters."    It then goes on to s.i\ :
"For some lime past, particularly on
his recent lour, Premier McBride lias
been urged by members oi his pari)
to drop the chief commissioner from
the government uti the ground dial he
was iv source of weakness. Now it is
said a bint has coniu Iroin a source
which die premier cannot disregard.
It was reported thai one of the flrsl
steps of die new lleutenant-governoi
was to intimate ihat ihe government
was tiol a olean one, and thai he could
not accept Green as one of his ministers. His alleged reason was die undue Knowledge which the Andersons,
male and female, lind of matters In the
lands  and  works    depart nt.    which
constituted a scandal,
"The governmenl'a request tor tnvi s-
tlgatlon by a supreme oourt Judge of
charges lu connection wiih the Pendrny
property is believed in be due to the desire of the premier m rehabilitate l^s
minister, wiih whom he win pari only
it retention means loss ol power.
"The Pendray ease will be a dilllcil.t
one io establish bj witnessed, nud
hence the premier hopes to he able to
fighi ii successfully, nnd hy ii favorable
derision from ti"' Judge i" prove the
department clean.
"Diinsintili, however, is very obsii-
niite. and If he has decided lhat Green
must go. he will Insist on his wish being obeyed."
For obvious reasons we propose in
nnulyze this special despatch and to
show the renders of this paper just
how much importance Is in he attachi d
to alleged political news. The flrsl
paragraph in the above despatch is a
purely imaginative one. and est aped
from Iho lurid Inventiveness of the
oorrespondenl to afford some convenient excuse for sending the blubber
that follows II. It goes on, "Now, It Is
said!" Yes, It is said; bul hy whom Is
It said? By no one oilier than the
special correspondent. "It is Bald 'fl
hint' has come from a source," etc.
Only a hint Indeed!
We continue to quote: "It is reported." Where is "it" reported? Not
around Victoria. Probably nowhere
else than In the columns of the News.
Again, "Ills 'alleged' reason wns." etc.
Who "alleged" this reason?    We need
not point out the disingenuous phraseology of ihe despatch, which, while il
pretends to tell a great deal, tells really
nothing, it admits that "the Pendray
case will be n difficult one to establish
by witnesses." and adds lhat "the premier hopes * ��� ��� by a favorable decision from a judge to prove the department clean." In the case of his
honor the lieutenant-governor it is content to descend to tlie level of Ihe colloquial and vulgar, and cnlls him simply
"Dunsmuir," adding that he Is a very
obstinate man Indeed. We wonder if
he has no other qualities beside "obstinacy," such as, for instance, good common sense! lint the despntch says "if
lie has decided;" so it appears that
there is no good ground for saying that
lie has; only nn "if he has," On the
other bond, we ask "If lie hasn't," what
will transpire in that case? We suppose his honor will he accused of dereliction of duty and incompetence or
political favoritism, or some such monstrous- thing, by the opposition press.
We ask any candid reader of the above
despatch to put his digit on one single
statement of fact contained therein, it
Is nothing more nor less than an aggie
gallon of Insinuations, aggravated suspicions and unconscionable perversion
of unverified political gossip, for which
die opposition hus shown itself so fond.
What byways and nlleys of the political
slums of victoria the oorrespondenl
must have explored lo discover an excuse for such tainted news! And to
what desperate straits must the opposition he driven when lhe political capital of ihe province affords no better
or more reliable information than such
malversation  evinces!
it must be admitted that the action
of the government in asking Tor the
appointment of a supreme court judge
to Investigate these rumors is some-
Ihing of a staggering biow to the oppn
Sltlon. I.asl week lhe entire opposition
press was clamorous for an investigation, as ihey were sure that by thai
means "Green" would huve to go. Now
they are preparing a soft place to drop
mi by assorting that his Investigation
will result  iii  his rehabilitation.    We
would  respectfully point ouli that  Hon.
Mr. Green i is  no  "rehabilitation."
He fins n, ver had anything done to him
lo make ll necessary. Moreover, the
gorernmenl is not asking for nn Inves
ligation for tills purpose.   They   are
simply inking lhe wlsosl t >se lo stop
die mouths of the howling horde ol accusers who have no scruples when it
��� nines to attack upon men holding public oiiice. ii may in- thai they hnve
ether motives, but we shall not follow
die devious example of the opposition
press uml anticipate them, when they
nre shown, Ihey will >. understood. A
little more fulr play rrom the opposition
would go a long way toward giving
them a standing in the confidence of
fhe people, which, with no one to blame
bill themselves, they do not now enjoy.
In the editorial columns of the Dally
News yesterday there appeared the following quotation from die editorial columns of the Victoria TlmoB;
"Nor cun we believe, despite the
methods comrade lluwthornihwuiiehas
adopted for raising n campaign fund
lo maintain himself while on his tour
of die province, that his party has nol
received its fair share of the proceeds
of the various deals the government bus
pill through the house���nnd which
could not have been put through Without lis assistance���at the expense of
the people of the province undi on be
half of male ond female adventurers
and great corporations."
We would respectfully suggest that
our, contemporaries, instead of making
broad and general insinuations regarding the alleged "deals" of the government from which Mr. Hnwtbnrnth-
waiie received his share of profit,
should explicitly and definitely point
out at least one of these deals and give
facts nnd figures to prove that there
was profit to divide. In the case of the
Conservative opposition to the land
deals In the Dominion house, the Conservative organs follow this rule, and
cite the Instances which challenge
their attention. The Sifton land grab
in die Northwest, the Nortii Atlaniio
Trading Company's "pull" with the
government, the extravagance of the
fisheries cruisers, as well as the Northwest exploration party of the "Arctic" iu which d"' Esquimaux were
feasted  on  board   ship   at   the  expense
of ihe government���all these are dis-
linei specifications, an.l need no further comment when brought out inlo
die open where they can he inspected.
Why do not die British Columbia palters cite instances of malfeasance with
the same definifeucss? Simply because they cannot, for it Is not human
nature to resort to fabrication when a
good case can he made out widi tlte
As an illustration    of the hypnotic
methods which still survive In modern
evangelism,  we  reprint  a verse of   a
chorus being  sung by  the  people   attending the Torrey-Alexunder meetings
in Ottawa.   The reference Is, of course,
to the old-time religion:
"It wns good, for our mothers,
It, was good for our mothers,
It was good for our mothers,
And it's good enough for us.
'Tis the   old-time   religion,
'Tie the  old-time   religion,
'Tis the  old-time  religion,
And it's good enough for me.
"It is good enough for Ottawa,
It Is good enough for Ottawa,
It is good enough for Ottawa.
Ami it's good enough for me."
There were some other things good
enough  for our mothers  that  certainly
are not good enough lot) us.
An esteemed but politically frenzied
contemporary says: "There ought to
he effective means for bringing lo book
newspapers which habitually and ttn-
blushingly lie about public men." With
such sentiments we cordially agree;
but if "habitually ami unblushtngly lying alioiii public men" were made a
criminal offence, wouldn't Conservative editors spend most of their time In
gaol?���Victoria Times.

This is a good time evidently to acquire a knowledge of the art.

The University Club of Nelson has
resolved to continue the campaign for
a provincial university, begun by it two
years and a half ago, and in whlcli It
has received Intermittent support from
oilier bodies during tile interval.
Tho arguments in favor of an early
foundation are growing stronger every
day, und if action bo not taken soon
by tho government, It will be too late,
and llrillsh Columbia will contain, instead of one efficient university, four
or live small and poor colleges, maintained by selfsacrillcing effort Of religious denominations, aud ' therefore
certain to endure.
The regular munfhly meeting of the
club was held Saturday eenlng; Dr.
Arthur, president, in the chair; others
present were Mrs. W. S. Pearcy, Ilev.
J. T. Ferguson, itev. K. H. Graham, C.
M. Fraser, VV, J. Uaird, A. L. MoKlflop,
G. Fl itevell, .1. Fraser, N. S. Fraser,
Mr. Hart and H. J. Clark.
Alter the routine business was iin-
ished lhe following rofiorL was presented by the university committee, as ttie
draft of a communication to be presented to other educational bodies and
finally to the government:
"Whereas, ll is not consonant with
the ulguity oi the largest ami potentially the richest province of Canada
to refuse to its own sons facilities within its borders lor obtaining sulhclent
learning to lit tliem for learned proles-
sious, nor economically expedient that
the task of scientilically developing the
material resources ol the province
should of necessity be entrusted to experts from olher provinces, from lhe
mother cuuntry or from foreign countries.
"It is desirable that a provincial university should be established aud endowed as early as possible.
"The exisiiug arrangement with Mc-
Clll university, while valuable as a
temporary expedient, cannot be permanently satisfactory, because It is Incomplete and siibordinale to external
authority, and its existence may lie a
Botirce of danger lu the encouragement
It offers for the beginning of snia.l centers for partial university work and its
disturbance of lhe high school system
of the province.
"Arrangements are being made by
the Church of England lor the establishment of a theological college in the
province, anil Bimllar steps have been
considered by the Presbyterian, Methodist and Baptist churches. Such training colleges will, in the absence of other facilities for education, almost inevitably develop around themselves small
arts colleges, thereby scattering and
weakening the educational efforts anil
IntorestB of the people, as has been
done by the same means in other provinces of Canada, notably Nova Scotia.
"Thai the preBent needs of the province may be provided for, and the danger of educational disunion averted, we
would urge that endowment for a provincial university In hind or money, or
both, be provided at once, und that
steps be taken as early as possible for
the establishment of a university anil
the beginning of Its work. And we request the co-operation and support of
all friends of education, organized and
unorganized, in pressing this important
question on the uttention of the provincial government."
The report was considered clause by
clause, and adopted. The committee,
K. J. Clark, Hevs. J. T. Ferguson unit
F. H. Uruhuni, Dr. E. C. Ariliur, A. L.
McKillop, C, M Fraser aud W. .1. lialrd,
were Instructed to take such further
slops as may seoui advisable In tlie
Tho literary program of the evening
wus A. U McKlllop'B paper on "Sociology." Beginning with the Ideas on social organization, borrowed from Bt
Simon by August Comte, which were
tho subject of the discussion at the
club's May meeting, Mr. MoKlUop
sketched briefly their development
dowu to tho present, dealing with
Mills, father und son,
and  Henry George,
lie spoke of man's twofold struggle
for existence and enjoyment, ono with
nature and one with his feliOWS. The
Hist, he said, was often ignored by so
clul reformers, who denmndou
government should make
living easy for all.
Mr   McKillop also criticised tho fill
lacy of analogies  from  physical
to the action of
and  society
vails Is of value, and may yet produce
ameliorations In the cotiditlon of the
Othor speakers were Rev. F. H. Graham, R. J. Clark, Mr. Hart. C. M. Fraser and W. J. Baird.
In replying. Mr. McKillop promised
on some future occasion lo further develop the subject of social organization
and means of Improving it.
The program for the next meeting
was left to be arranged by the president and secretary. The club then adjourned to Saturday, September 8th.
Valuable Agent of Civilization.
That the phonograph lias been an active agent in the spread of civilization,
in assisting exploration nnd in substituting peace for war, Is shown by the
history of the talking instrument.
Colonel Colin Harding, the English
explorer of the wilds of Central Africa,
had many difficulties smoothed from
his way hy this Instrument. Part ot
his projected Journey through Barotse-
land and about the headwaters of the
mighly Zambesi river lay through a
wild country peopled by blacks, who
objected to the passage of a white
man's expedition.
King l.enawika, of that country, approved of the expedition, but tbe difficulty was to transmit his wishes to the
thoiisunda of his subjects in the remote corners of ills dominions.
The phonograph was brought Into
requisition. The Barotse sovcreigu ut-
lered his commands into tlie Instrument, and in this way records were obtained in which the monarch exhorted
all his subjects to assist Colonel Harding In every way.
Armed with these records, the explorer set out upon his hazardous journey.
As he penetrated into the country the
native chiefa displayed unmistakable
signs of hostility. On such occaslona
the colonel simply set the phonograph
in action, and the unsophisticated natives were almost prostrated by terror
when they heard the tones of their august monarch proceed from what they
termed tho "speaking iron."
They looked at the Instrument with
awe and with gaping mouths.
In this way Colonel Harding traveled
over 8.000 miles without the slightest
molestation, and never had lo use his
rifle on a single occasion in se'.f-defence
and against the. blacks.
When Ihe Americans were extending
their occupation of the v Philippine
Islands, the peoples of certain sovereignty manifested a disposition lo rebel. The sultan was Induced to visit a
warship, and, while In the captain's
cabin, was entertained by the productions of a phonograph.
So greatly was he pleased with lhe
instrument that he agreed to sign a
treaty and "be good" if the Instrument
was 'presented to him. This was done,
the In al'.. was signed, and the sultan
departed in high glee with his new
