Rumor That Grand Rapids Is to Become
Divisional Point for C. P. R.
and G. N. R. Companies.
Grand Forks, March 11.���Following
the report that there Is every likelihood
of the Great Northern Railway making
Grand Forks its divisional point comes
the word today that there Is every rea
non to believe that the C. P. K. will
move ItB roundhouses from Eholt to
Grand Forks at once. Some local C. P.
R. officials, being Interviewed on the
subject, said that they were not in a
position to deny the report. With two
divisional points located at Grand
Forks and a big union depot situated
right ln the centre ol the city, as a matter of course, the distributing point for
lbe Houndary district would be here. II
Is generally believed that these mosl
important railway changes will be com
pleted withiu the next 60 days.

St. Petersburg, March 11.���The Low-
er House of Parliament assembled this
morning to consider Instructions for the
presentation of credentials of members.
The radical parties are hopelessly at
odds regarding the manner of raising
tbe question of amnesty. The Socialists persist In forcing it Immediately in
the form or an open declaration to the
people which practically would be an
appeal for a revolution. A caucus of
several Revolutionists and members of
Ihe Peasant League last night rejected
this as wel las a proposition to make
an appeal or demand to the Emperor on
the subject and lt was decided to introduce a regular bill providing amnesty for political prisoners. This Is undoubtedly unconstitutional and hence
unacceptable to the Constitutional Democrats. The cabinet, In any event, will
not regard the Introduction of an amnesty resolution as warranting the dissolution of Parliament. The Reactionist's campaign for prorogation of Parliament under any pretext ls, however,
In full swing.

In the Methodist church last evening
Rev. R. Newton Powell gave a short explanatory address on the Lord's Day
Act. He said he had nothing new to
offer but he wished to correct some misapprehensions. He considered lt an
epoch-making act, placing Canada easily first among the nations ln moral legislation.
The Act was the outcome of a privy
council decision that the provincial
legislation on the subject since Confederation ls ultra vires, and that pre-Con
federation   legislation was chaotic.
Mr. Powell ridiculed the Idea that It
was a "Parsons' Protective Bill" to
make people go to church. As to the
objection that It was an interference
with Individual liberty, he admitted lt
to be valid but submitted that the whole
criminal code was full of such Interference, and that the only guide and stand
ard Is the general good.
He admitted the bill to be imperfect,
and that hostile critics might find many
faults, but he was sure it was on right
lines, and pleaded that it should have
a fair trial so that Its defect might be
seen and remedied.

The approach of the date of the gathering ill the capital of the Empire of
representatives of all Uu great seif-gov
ening colonies to confer with the statesmen of the Motherland on measures
thut may be taken 10 strengthen the
tiei. that unite all the subjects of the
King, is for thfl first time since the con
tereocea began, looked forward to with
more apprehension than hnpe by all
earnest Imperialists throughout the Km
There are two main causes for such
appreh'-nsiens: tin* attitude of the
present govirnmem of Great Hritain,
and of the preseni guverntnent of
One of thfl last public utterances ol
the late Lord Salisbury wan ou the sub
jeei or closer union of lhe Empire His
advice to itn advocates was to hasten
slowly to trust to the natural if slow
growth of the sentiment of loyalty and
unity, and to risk nothing by au at
tempt to force events.
The advice  was   disregarded   by Mr.
Chamberlain, whose chlet characteristic
was never patience. His premature attempt to commit Great Hritain to ;i
tiiiddon reversal of a trade policy followed for half a century wrecked his
party and has placed in office a heterogeneous Drew, in which thfl Radian] and
Kittle England element predominates.
The Hritish Liberals are committed
Irrevocably���not to Free Trade, all Brit
Ish efforts have failed to secure that ���
hut to free imports at any coBt, however ruinous tO Hritish manufacturer;
In competition with those of protected
countries, which Include all the world
outside of the Hritish Isles.
The attitude of the British Radical
towards the Empire is fairly indicated
in Mr. Lloyd-Georges recent declaration
In the commons in reply to a magnificent speech by Mr. Halfour, tbat "wc
must not let sentiment interefere with
business." That view will probably prevail while the present administration
retains power. It is a narrow view, un-
worth of a race of empire-builders, but
in the light of the history of the Hritfsb
Uberal party for the last hundred years
it is quite comprehensible.
Hut the attitude of Sir Wilfrid Laurler und his colleagues and followers is
not so easy of comprehension.
It is true that Canada has taken over
the defences of Halifax and EstpiimaU
���borrowing British troops for the purpose. Hut in spite of the generous ex
amplee of Australia, Xew Zealand, Cape
polony and Newfoundland, all smaller
and poorer colonies, Canada has never
contributed one ship, one gun or one
man to the navy which must be the
only guardian of our commerce In Ume
of war.
The preference to British imjKJrts In
the Canadian tariff has been proved to
be wholly Illusory, und the evidence
Is strong that such was the deliberate
Intention of its authors.
Bui the latest untl most deadly blow
to the hopes of those who looked foi
further benefits from the approaching
conference, wus Sir Wilfrid Laurier b
recent, loud, quite unnecessary, and
most Inopportune assertion thut Canada
must make no agreement that will im
pair her freedom to regulute her own
trade relations.
If Canada refuses absolutely, in spite
of hor annual surplus, lo bear any share
of the burden of Imperial defence, und
will give no undertaking on which
mutual concessions may be based, it ls
a pertinent question, "Why should
Canada be represented at the confer
ence at all?"
Of course it lies with the people of
Canada to say whether they approve of
their premier's conduct in thus blocking every effort of all the other Htutos-
men of the Empire to solve the great
es*. problem that has ever confronted
the British or any other race In th"
development of empire.
The debate on tne reply to the ad
dress from the throne in the provincial
legislature has presumably been re
suiued today by John Oliver.   It will be
interesting to learn what line '.he regular opposition will adopt. If J. A
Macdonald will avoid the error of seek
Int" for scandals to the exclusion of
everything else, he should make an ad
mirabie leader of the opposition. His
analytical mind���w? have never dented
Its existence���will be far more worthily
employed in trying to improve aud cor
root bills that are often necessarily
drafted in haste than in cross-examin
itig witnesses on scandal-investigating
commissions. The fact that among bis
followers there is nu mun uf marked
ability-���unless Dr. Hall proves to be a
born legislator���will make Mr. Macdonald's task a heavy one, but his verj
lonellenss gives him a fine opportunity
lot distinction. The Liberal party, us
(at as its representation in the present
legislature is toncerued. is purged ol
undesirable elements and has a clean
slate. It is earnestly to be hoped in
their own interests as well as in thai
of tbe province, that they will keep
their slate clean and not soil it by discreditable attempts to slander their
The debate at the University Club
Saturday night on the system of party
government was an instructive one
Party loyalty is often derided by superior persons, who quote the hackneyed
remark about politics being a fight be
tweeu the "ins" and "outs." Such deri
sion is born uf ignorance. Conservatism
and Reform are universal tendencies
that have divided the human race since
the beginning of social organization
Every thinking man is either a Conservative or Liberal by conviction. It ma>
happen���ir has happened���that reforms
have been introduced by Conservatives
aud opposed by Liberals, but as a rule
it is the tendency of Liberals to advo
cate constant change, and of the Con
servatives to oppose change. A balance
between the parties with alternate vie
tories for both���which is tlie ideal con
dition���would secure the rejection of
undesirable changes and tht- adoption
of those that are beneficial. Participa
tion iu such work is not unworthy 01
the greatest intellects. Independence or
party politics usually implies indiffer

New   Development   of   the   Faith-Cure
Myth���Health and Proeperlty for
a Dollar a Month.
The World Ib ln receipt of a copy of
a curious paper, the editor and publisher of which BeemB to have been a minister at one time. At all events he
Bpeaks of having occupied a pulpit. The
mai.-_7.iiii- consists of eight pages, ts
published In the United States, and is
said to be in lta fourteenth year. The
buck page Is occupied entirely by an
announcement in large type from which
the following interesting extracts are
' "Modern methods must be used in
mental healing, but the principle Ib as
old as the mind. I give treatments for
all kinds of sIckneBS and troubles, including poverty. Poverty is a disease.
[I. can be cured by mental treatments.
I divide my work into three divisions,
but all leading to the same purpose,
namely, your health, happiness and
"1. Treatments are given to (here ls
given the name of the paper.) For
many years persons have testified to
the splendid results from the paper itself. They use it as a medium for the
healing word. I treat the paper while
preparing copy and reading proof, and
send it out charged with healing
thought. Tou may apply the paper to
the body or parts affected, or you may
hold a copy in your hand while receiving the healing vibrations. Jesus Christ
used mud.   Paul used handkerchief-, and
napkins.     James   uaed   oil.     uses
"II. Treatments are given to persons
who are enrolled ln the Circle of Christians. These treatments are given every
morning, but at no other time ot the
day. Parsons enrolled tn the Circle of
Christians are expected to remain in
the fellowship right along year after
year. The treatments are given for
business success, love and marriage,
health and happiness. The terms are
one dollar per month, or twelve dollars
a year."
Down ln darkest Africa the witchdoctors "treat" bits of calico and other
substances which are used by the Ignorant nativeB as curative agents. In the
Southern States the negroes carry rabbit's pawB about their person to ward
off evil of one kind or another. The
system Is as old as human superstition
and when one of  's dupes holds a
copy of the paper In his hand or applies
It to his body in the hope that ho will
be relieved of his indisposition or
achieve business success he is placing
himself on a level wllh the degraded
tribes of Africa and his own semi-savage ancestors of ten thousand years
ago. The blasphemous comparison
which the "reverend" editor makes between himself and the Saviour and His
holy apostles cannot be too strongly
reprehended, more especially as the
statement that persons enrolled in the
circle are expected to remain ln the
fellowship right along at a cost of one
dollar a month, at once disposes of any
lingering Idea that the scheme is other
than one of hypocritical graft, a graft
which seem to have run 14 years
without the interference ot the postal
Happily the authorities In the United
States are beginning to look askance on
publications of this kind, which are no
more genuine magazines than is a patent medicine almanack, and the Canadian malls are likely to be less flooded with
them In future. There Ib no reason why
the Dominion postoffice should not exercise Its own rightB in this matter and
refuse to deliver printed matter which
under the guise of religion defrauds the
poor and Ill-informed members of the
community.���Vancouver World.

It is understood that a petition will

Undobtedly any of the residents of Fair-

While lt would mean increased taxes, it

advantageous to not only Fairvlew, but
Nelson as well.
The citizens of Nelson were deeply
Interested in H. B. Thomson's address
In moving the reply to the speech from
the throne. Mr. Thomson's speech was
just what might be expected from a
man of his well-known business ability.
It was a keen, careful analysis of business conditions prevailing in British
Columbia. Now that Mr. Thomson has
gone into the ,,. -'"Mi-makm*. business
it ls safe to assume that he will make
quite as much a success of lt as he has
nf his business enterprises. He sue
ceeds ln everything he undertakes���

P. Burns, tne meat king, Is an evidence of what can be accomplished in
western Canada by indomitable energy,

In Winnipeg, but he did'nt work for

lead in the battle for supremacy and
his success in his chosen line bears
testimony that he gauged his own powers with accuracy. He did not reach
hit present position through the trickery ln business that some times wins
success, lt was a clear case of playing
thc game square and keeping a cool
heal that brought success to Mr.
