Work on V. V. 4 E. Is Discontinued-
Improvements at Daly Reduction Works.
This week sees things In full blast
around the above works ln Hedley.
There Is ample water to keep all machines humming and a corresponding
air of satisfaction Ib resected ln the
faces of manager and heads of departments.
The over-hauling which has been given to different parts Is having the desired effect In smoothness and Increased
efficiency.
A peep Into the enlarged and rearranged assay office affords a sample of
the Improvements effected. The new
addition in which the samples are prepared is laid out for much greater rapidity and accuracy. The floor Is of
cement with Iron sampling urea in the
���centre. Three grinders are at work, the
last ot which leaves the sample ground
to almost Impalpable fineness. Not a
speck of dust from this room gets into
either the furnace room or chemical
laboratories. The old bucking board,
now obBelete, and other antiquated
equipment used by Lamb in the furnace
room has been rebuilt and can be regulated to a nicety. Ample muffle room
ls provided to do a large volume of
work.
The capacity of the whole office has
been Increased from about 30 or 40 samples to 400 samples per day, and the
cost to secure this Improvement looks
to be trifling ln proportion to the bene
fit derived.
Two assayers, Messrs. Oake and Williams are busy on a big pile of samples.
During the year Mr. Koss Intends keen-
Ing the assay office going to Its full
capacity, for he is determined to know
exactly what everything ls worth.
In last Issue, reference was made to
a rumor that Mllliken's gang of surveyors, who had been at work on the
V. V. & E. since last summer, had received orders to disband. This waB
confirmed when on Friday night the
gang appeared In Hedley on their way
to Midway.
It ls only a fortnight since Chief Engineer J. H. Kennedy wns through, and
at that time there was no Intimation
of any probability of a move of this
kind; for whllo it ls generally understood that Iheir work Is completed bo
far bb location of the route from Keremeos through Hedloy lo Princeton Ib
concerned, lt hns also been understood
that most of their work for the past
month or so has been that of marking
time until construction on this portion
of the route should begin, when there
would be abundance of work for them
In cross-sectioning nnd other engineer
Ing connected with construction.
The reason for the move Is not apparent, and so fnr as known, nothing
has boen given out ns lo where they
will be sent after reaching Midway.
The whole clrcumstnnce certainly
doesn't look good to dwellers In the
upper Simiikameen, some of whom Interpret the move ns Indefinite postponement of construction.
During the rallwny discussion In the

Oliver Trapped by Third
Parly
QUOTE HIS OWN WORDS
Convicted Ballot Switchers Still In
Government'* Employ���Blander
In Subsidy Bill.
Ottawa, April 29.���TJle minister of
the Interior has been made the victim
of a cruel conspiracy. Mr. Oliver he-
came a minister when Mr. Sifton went
out two years ago. Before taking office
he held strong and Independent views
on Immigration. He tben declared that
the Russian Immigrant was a hindrance
and not a help to the country, He objected to the payment of bonuses to
steamship companies because they
brought bad Immigrants as cheerfully
as good ones. He protested against
the Inrtoduction of settlere having a
different civilization from our own, declaring that they would control our
civilization and abuse it. He asserted
that the Qalictans and the Doukhobors
could never be citizens ln the real
sense, and the Slav population would be
"a mill stone hung around our necks."
Such were Mr. Oliver's sentiments in
1901, 1902 and 1903 as repeatedly and
violently expressed with all the external
appearance of sincerity.
But Mr. Oliver, as minister, continues
to pay bonuses for European Immigrants. He has made what he calls a
"tacit" agreement to pay a price per head
for Europeans sent hither in the future,
He commended and continued, then
praised, and cancelled, and finally- commended the Norlh Atlantic Trading company deal. He is bringing In dalucluns
and other Russians and paying out of
the treasury for the privilege of obtaining them.
Now the third party In the House
feel the Bame as Oliver did three
years ago. They think that bonuses
ought to stop, that undesirable Immigrants should not be received. They
proposed to put these Ideas in the form
of a resolution and ask the government
to adopt it. Then they framed their
plot. They went to Oliver's speech
against bonuses and selected a passage
In which his views and theirs was expressed. This passage tliey transformed
Into a motion. Mr. Oliver had said that
the payment of bonuses was "a most
undesirable expenditure and I would
ask that It be not continued." He also
declared that "the payment of bonuses
and commissions had a tendency to
bring the less desirable rather than the
more desirable class of people." Mr.
Lavergne moved "That the payment ot
bonuses on Immigration has a tendency
to bring lu a less rather than a more
desirable class of people, that lt is a
most unwise policy and expenditure and
therefore should not be continued."
This was a clear case of theft. Not
only the sentiments but the very words
were those of Mr. Oliver. The plotters
had carefully selected them with deep
design. But Mr. Oliver did not recognize the vleWB nor the language. He
opened flre on Mr. Lavergne with great
sound and fury, calling him a Little
Canadian, a Sectionalism a narrow
minded person, charging him with
bigotry, Ignorance and smallness of
soul. It was beautiful the wild western
way the minister held the Nationalists
up to scorn and contumely and tore
their motion Into fragments. The loyal
outburst with which he closed was
worth many UmeB the price of admission.
Mr. J. E. Armstrong of East Lambton,
who has taken a great Interest In the
European markets for Canadian farm
products, has brought once more to the
attention of the House the fact that
Germany is getting the advantage In
Canada of the British preference. Germany has practically shut Canadian
goods out of her market because the
British preference was not also given
lo Germany. The result Is that while
Germany buys of farm products $48,-
000,000 from tho Argentine Republic,
$28,000,000 from Australia and Immensely larger quantities from the United
States, Canada sends thither only $1,-
000,000 worth and Is gradually losing
thnt trade. At the same time the Canadian agent at sLeeds reports to the government that Immense quantities of
German manufacturereB are sent free
Into Grent Britain whero they nro packed and shipped t*.. Canada us British
goods receiving preferential treatment.
The preference duty Is Just one-halt the
surtax rate, so that Germany Is regularly nhlpplng goods to Canada under
the most favored terms, while Germany
Imposes prohibitory duties on Canadian
grain, fruit, meat products and other
standard products. Mr. Armstrong insists tbat this condition should not be
allowed to exist a month longer, and
shows by conclusive evidence that the
government policy and administration
ls allowing this country to be Injured
as to Its export* and swindled as to Its
imports by Its blundering over commercial relations with Germany.
When Mr. Emmerson made his remarkable speech on resigning his offlce,
he stated that charges could
be made against Conservative
members and supported by evidence In possession of the House.
Having so spoken Mr. Emmerson left
the Chamber. The next day Mr. Borden
read the Btatement and demanded a
fuller explanation from tbe ea ���Ulster,
declaring that he himself waa ready to
assist an Inquiry Into any charge* Mr.
Emmerson might make. The opposition
leader promised to repeat his challenge
when Mr. Emmerson waa next In hla
seat. That was nearly three weeks
ago and Mr. Emmerson hats not been ln
the House since.
Mr. Hyman ls still missing. The government has a letter stating that he has
sent more resignation* tn the Speaker,
but at the time of writing the Speaker
has made no announcement. Meanwhile
Mr. Hyman was on hi* way to Canada,
but before reaching the border changed
hla mind and returned south. It I* said
that be is going to Europe, but lt Is
quite certain that even tf his health Is
restored, he will not return to offlce.
It ls also clearly understood that Sir
Fred. Borden has about finished bis
career as a minister. He may be made
High Commissioner or disappear ln
some other direction, but he will not
again be a -candidate In King's, Nova
Scotia. The political, climate ln that
country has become dangerous.
Confession of ballet box switching
was recently made by James Farr, a
deputy in the election ateal ot West
Huron of 1899. In December laat Farr
swore that at the last election he
switched thirteen ballot* marked for
McLean, placing in the box that number
for the government candidate. Farr
stated that on the day before the election W. L. Horton took him to the hotel
In Goderlch where Fan* was Introduced
to O'Gorman, now one of the accused In
the London conspiracy, and to another
person who turned out to be Prlchett,
the chief Instructor ln ballot-switching.
Horton gave the Introduction and Prlchett proceeded to put Farr through a
course of ballot-switching.
This incident was recalled In the commute of supply on Wednesday by Mr.
Bennett, who pointed out that Horton Is
now contractor with the government for
dredging at Goderlch harbor.
Mr. Aylesworth's blunder has made a
rather fine mess of tbe address to the
King respecting the Increase ln pro*
vlncial subsidies. The address as passed hy the house of commons and --sent
to the senate omits a clause adopted by
Ihe conference basing the annual payments to the western provinces on the
population determined by the last census. With this clause out the basis becomes the population of 1901 Instead of
1906. It makes a difference of half a
million dollars to Manitoba with proportionate losses to the province farther
west. The error was dlsovered by Senator Ferguson and now the whole work
has to be done over again.
Cloud-Bunt In Oklahoma.
Oklahoma City, April 29.���A cloudburst over Capitol Hill, a suburb ot this
city, just Bouth of the Canadian river,
flooded that place today. Seven persons are missing and are believed to
be drowned. Many persons encamped
on the low lands near the river were
caught unaware.-; and had but little time
to make their escape.
lack From Trial.
R. S. Lennie returned last night from
Victoria, where he has spent the last
several weeks at the trial before the
full court of the case of Star vs White.
He was joined at Vancouver by Mrs.
Lennie and their children who have also
returned to Nelson.
*** 8peedy Trial.
John Riley, charged with theft at
Nakusp, came up this morning In the
provincial court, and the prisoner elected for a speedy trial, which will be held
before Judge Forln on May 6th.

Bos. D. Ferpuon Criticizes Cart-
wright's BUI as Aid to Oe
Wrong Class.
Senator Ferguson made a notable
contribution to the debate on Sir Richard Cartwrlght's annuity bill. A summary follows:
Mr. Ferguson said the principle ot
state Insurance was accepted by parliament ln 1896, when the Civil Servants' Insurance Act was passed. Sir
Richard Cartwrlght's draft bill proposed
to extend that principle by authorizing the aale of annuities by the government to the amount of $409 to any one
person. At the 31st of March, 1906, Ufe
and term annuities sold by the government ln Great Britain were outstanding
to tbe amount of $13,795,821. Although
the Canadian Insurance companies generally had authority to -sell annuities,
yet the reserve liability under that
heading at the end of the year 1905 waa
less than $3,000,000. He could see no
objection to the government selling annuities, but such sale would not to any
perceptible degree oover tbe ground
which would be cultlvatetd by a system
of old age pensions. He did not see
any great boon to por men In thiB annuity scheme. If the business were to
be done at cost, there would be a gain
to the annuitant But If the funds were
invested, as proposed, ln government securities the rate of interest would be
only 3 per -cent, while the insurance
companies were earning an average ot
4 1-2 per cent on their investments.
Fully 50 per cent, would require to be
added from the general revenue to
make tbe result aa good as that obtained by the companies. That contribution would not be a gift, although lt
would always appear as such in the public accounts.
The question of old age pensions was
engaging tbe attention of thoughtful
men all over the world. Germany, Denmark, Australia and New Zealand have
made the payment of such pensions the
law of these countries. Tbe question ls
being forced to the front on account of
tbe unequal distribution of wealth. In
the United States It ls alleged that 95
per cent, of the wealth I* held by about
5 per cent, of the population.
Tbe great fallacy of tbe American
Declaration of Independence���that all
men were born equal���was never more
apparent than today. Some had perverted moral natures. For these we
provide courts to establish their degree of guilt and build reformatories,
Jails and penitentiaries to discipline
tbem. Some are physically or mentally
weak, for them we provide Infirmaries,
hospitals and lunatic asylums. He did
not wait here to separate municipal or
federal obligations, but spoke of the
state generally. There were set apart
men to defend hearts and homes. These
were usually pensioned. Other men
were set apart to administer justice;
we provided ample retiring allowances
for them, even providing that they may
retire after a comparatively short period
of service and with their full salaries,
and without any contribution to any
fund. The principle that ministers of
thc crown should receive pensions, with-
out contributions to any fund, was aa
sented to by the present government, although since temporarily abandoned by
them. Long ago superannuation was
provided for the civil service, tbe Intention of the law being that such superannuation should be based on contribution. The act was abused by successive governments, and parliament repealed a good law, Instead of courageously removing the abuses. Most of our
banks pensioned their deserving servants when they were old. Some did
this entirely out of the funds of the
banks, others partly through contributions.
But the great bulk ot our population
did not come under any of these heads.
They were those that follow mainly
private pursuits, and did not engage
in the scramble for wealth. They were
found In every walk of life, and Included many of those who labored to extend human knowledge, alleviate human
suffering and promote the moral well-
being of their fellow-men.
"Far from the maddening crowd's Ignoble strife.
Their sober wishes never learned to
stray: ;
Along the cool, sequestered vale of life
They kept the noiseless tenor of their
way."
To these soldiers of labor who become disabled in the battle of life there
should bo a provision when such disagreeable and Ill-matched visitors as
age and want knocked at thetr door.
Another class remains to be consid
ered. It Is composed of those who, being animated by an Inordinate love of
gain, devote their lives, almost wholly,
to the accumulation of money. Theae
accumulations are made mainly by watering stocks, cornering the market, by
unlawful combinations ln trade, or by
uncontrolled use of public utilities.
This is the class who should mainly
bear the burden of old age pension*. In
doing ao they would only be returning
to tbe poor and aged laborer a part of
his own-
Some objection had been offered to
the old age pension by Sir Richard
Cartwright The first was tbat thrift
would be discouraged. Wherever these
pensions were adopted tbe opposite effect was visible. The shipwrecked mariner, seeing tbe light an tbe shore,
dalibied bis efforts; and so tbe despairing eon of toll, having tbe light of hope
presented before him, finds hi* strength
and courage renewed.
Tben, again, Sir Richard says that
conditions In Canada are unlike those
of densely populated European countries, and that here a smaller nupriter
wonld require pensions In tbelr old
day*. If so, we have les excuse for refusing to act, as our task will be the simpler and easier. The man who seriously think* tbat the wage-earner of Canada on an average salary of lea* than
$300 a year can pay the cost of rent and
fuel, feed, clothe and educate his family,
and at the same time lay by sufflclent
money to maintain himself and hi* wife
in tbelr declining years, must hare a
method of arriving at his conclusions
which he (Mr. Ferguson) did not nnder
stand. The duty of the hour was
"To make a happy fireside clime
For weans and wife;
For that's the true pathos, and sublime,
Of buman life."
But many who had accomplished this
and .surviving their children, or being
neglected by them, have to pass the
close of their days In want That they
are allowed to do so Is a national disgrace.
AERIAL FLIGHT SOLVED
A. O. Bell Predict* Early Craning of
Atlantic In 20 Hour*���Battleahlp*
Will Fly.
New York, April 29.���A London despatch to-the Tlmea quotes Dr. Alexander Bell, the Inventor of the telephone,
as saying last ulght that it waa only a
question ot a brief period when the
progress ot aerial navigation will make
lt possible to have dinner In America
and breakfast next morning in Europe, covering tbe dlatance acroaa the
Atlantic In considerbly lesa time than
20 hours.
"My expectation," said Dr. Bell, "is
tbat an airship will be perfected capable
of making 100 to 200 miles an hour. My
opinion, however, la that the next step
ln aerial Sight will make such Improve
ments as will make possible the creation of aerial battleahlp*.
"The actual problem ot navigation of
thc air ha* already been solved by tbe
Wright brothers. Naturally there will
be developments along commercial
lines, a feature of which will be a great
Increase in speed, but the moat attention will be paid to adapting airships
to tbe purposes of war. My belief ls
that America will be tbe flrat country
to perfect aerial battlehlps. This belief ls based on inside Information, and
from tbe same source I get reliable
statements on which I base my prediction of the early production of an air
ship of enormous speed.
"I hope to be able to add much to
what is known of aerial flight by experiments at Cape Breton Island this summer. My problem this year will be to
propel my kites with a specially constructed engine of 16 horse-power weighing 120 pounds. I hope to get a machine of tbe 'heavier than air' variety
that will support a man and the necessary equipment to operate it at low cost
and at high velocity. Laat December I
constructed a vehicle that supported Itself and a man ln a ten-mile breexe; I
now want to fly a machine carrying an
engine at 10 or 15 milea an hour.' It I
can accomplish this there ls hope that
the aviators, or the men who are trying
to solve flight on tbe bird plan will ba
able to avoid fatal accident* long
enough to learn how to fly. Even a bird
has to learn to fly and aa wltb the bird,
one of tbe first considerations Is safety, so man must learn to go slowly before he goes fast. I am confident that
lt will not he long before flying machines will be everywhere. The developments of the next few month* will be
unprecedented but the moat Interesting
point ls that only very few know how
near America Is right now to solving a
question which will revolutionize war
fare throughout the world, I mean the
construction ot a practical aerial battleship."

degree of doctor of science at Oxford

Dr. Hall Saved City free
Delay
NEW 1UNIC1PM. CLAUSE
Member for Kelson Horn* from Csgl-
ttl���General Impressler*
of the Session
Dr. Hall, M. L. A., for Nelaon, returned from the capital last night and.
Is busy today shaking hands. Dr. Hall
has many political opponents but no
personal enemies.
Aaked aa to the result* of tbe session Dr. Hall aald he would not describe
It as barren, but be thought the government had attempted altogether too
much considering the very short time
allowed for preparation between the
elections and the opening of the house,
After the departure of Premier MoBrlde especially, the pressure of over
work became noticeable.
Aaked as to tbe circumstances of the
passing of tbe Municipal Clauses Act
amendments, in which Nelson is specially interested, Dr. Hall gave an explanation that throws a new light on the matter, and shows that the city owea a debt
of gratitude to ber member for preventing a year's delay in securing tbe ex-
tension of tbe borrowing powers necessary for the building of the new public
school.
When be first saw Premier McBride
on the subject he was sbown a telegram
from Mayor Gillett to the aame purpose.
The premier assured him ihat be would
leave inatroctlona to cover the matter.
BM Immediately after the premier'*
departure, A. E. McPhlllips, chairman
of the municipal committee, was-alao
called away. From tbat time work. In
tbe committee accumuated to auch an
extent that Dr. Hall had reason to fear
that Nelson'* clauses would not be
reached thla session.
Finally, on the advice and with the
support of Messrs. Garden and Mac-
Gowan, he Introduced tbe clauses in the
bouse himself, the rule requiring notice
being suspended at hia request It was
read a tint time on Introduction, and a
special reference to the municipal committee reaulted ln the clauses becoming
law, though only on the laat day of the
session. Dr. Hall has enjoyed the
strenuous Ufe of a parliamentarian, a*
his appearance shows. He will remain
ln Nelaon during the summer and re*
sume hla practice.

many friends and made few enemies.
He waa an ardent devotee of the rod

one of the town's most enthuslastlo
anglers and a hunter of more than
ordinary skill. He was a member ot the

PURGE THE PARLIAMENT.
We print today a statement liy O. T.
Blackstock as to the conduct and character of the average member uf parliament. No discrimination between
parties ls made. Coming immediately
after G. W. Fowler's charges, and H. K.
Emmerson's admissions and countercharges, they throw a very unpleasant
light on the rank aud file of Canada's
lawmakers.
The defence offered by Mr. Fielding
to the atlacK. by Mr. Horden on the
wholesale corruption pratised In the Dominion elections, namely that it had always been so. and probably always will
be so, naturally recurs. An Impartial
analysis will lead any one to the conclusion that such a defence Is not only
unpardonable because of Its cynical
shamelessness but is absolutely withou;
warrant in fact.
The men of the last generations in
Britain and Canada might tolerate the
private failings of a Palmerston and a
Macdonald on account of their great abilities and their known devotion to tho
public welfare. Hut such defects never-
the less detract from the fami-- of great
men. When they are found in exaggerated form In men who havo no other
title to respect, either in ability or patriotic zeal, what defence can be urged
for them?
We boast that the standards of conduct In Canada are steadily rising, especially in respect of temperance and
of what Is specifically called morality.
The hard drinking and hard thinking
men of 30 and 40 years ago probably reflected fairly faithfully. the average of
conduct of their day, arid in respect of
Intelligence and honesty of purpose
they were the real leaders of the people. BUt now the Canadian House of
Commons seems to have gathered to lt-
��elf, with very few exceptions, the most
disreputable   from   each   constituency,
and the average of ability and of care
for the public Interest are lower than
ever before In Canadian history.
It has become the established usage
of democracies to credit to their rulers
every blessing and to blame upon their
rulers every III. The government that
accepts responsibility for bountiful harvests, for richness of mines and for expansion of trade and Industry, can hardly complain If the people who endorse
that claim Insist upon holding them responsible for all the Ills of the bodv
politic.
How fur Is the present administration
responsible for the deterioration of parliament?
The government of the day la the
guardian of the honor of parliament;
the prime minister Is especially the custodian of the honor of his cabinet. As
parliament is assumed to represent the
highest Intelligence and character of
the country, so the cabinet Is assumed
ta represent the highest Intelligence
and character of parliament.
The premier has therefore a grave re.
sponslblllty In choosing the members of
his cabinet council. They must be of
wisdom and ability to frame statesmanlike policies and, Individually, to ensure efficient administration of the departments of the public service. But
It is at least equally Important lha'
their character be such as to claim and
retain the respect of the parliament and
lhe country.
in Ihe second respect Sir Wilfrid
l.aurier has signally failed, and, doubtlessly in recognition of his failure, has
pursued the most dangerous course conceivable. The reputation of his cabinet
cannot be saved liy suppressing all attempts at Inquiry. Men, whom knowledge of the truth will Injure, have no
title to protection. It Is the present
urgent duty of Canadians of all parties
t" Insist that their national council shall
be filled with clean men.
The next few days will be a
period of suspense In regard to
the situation in the coal fields.
Tho men have' refused by overwhelming
majorities to return to work pending a
permanent settlement of the points at
Issue between them and the operators.
The only hope now of preventing tho
strike from becoming a test of endurance, Is with the conciliation board.
The chairman of that board, Sir William Mulock, Is expected to arrive In
Fernie tomorrow night.   Tbe board will
meet Tuesday night or Wednesday
morning. How long lt will take the
board to come to a decision can only be
matter of conjecture. But it must also
be remembered that the finding of lhat
board is not binding upon either party.
lt may yet fall to the lot of Mr. Lemieux
to devise alternative mentis for securing the operation of the mines, which
is urgently required by the whole of
Western Canadu.
The question of lhe extension of the
city limits to include the suburb of
Kairview will probably become a live
issue In a very few days especially
among the residents of Fairvlew, who
will be the chief beueflclarles. For
Ihem it may mean increased taxation
but it will certainly mean also Improved
flre and police protection. For the city
It will mean Increased assessed values
but for a few years at least the revenue
from them will certainly not suffice to
meet expenditures that will become necessary. Needless to say. It will not af.
feet the problem of school accommodation. The new building In Fairview is
not even now more than sufficient for
its needs.
Rev. W. M. Rochester, western secretary of the Dominion Lord's Day Alliance Is reported in an interview at Winnipeg, to have declared that the attorney general of British Columbia has exceeded his authority in announcing that
the Lord's Day Act will remain inoperative in British Columbia. ,\lr. Rochester was no doubt an eloquent preacher,
and is no doubt an efficient organizer,
but his presuming to dispute with the
attorney genera] the Interpretation of
a legal enactment can only be described
as impertinence.

G.  T.
Blackstock   Draws  Comparisons
With Earlier Period.
Toronto, April 29.���i stood in a hotel
Bome time ago whilst a lady was signing the register and at the sartle time I
heard a torrent of the foulest oaths I
ever had to listen to, oaths and blasphemies proceeding from some members of the House of Commons. So long
as we allow that to go on, so long will
we be on the greased skid of destruction." Mr. George Tate Blackstock.
K. C, made this remark in the course
of an address delivered before the Canadian Club ou "Some Tendencies."
"Democracy works better in Great
Britain than In any other country on the
earth because it Is au evolution and
the old grandee system which governed

havi' an aristocratic .governing body,
while at the same time that body la ia
constant touch with the democracy*,"
Mr. Blackstoob went on and proceeded
to point out how the House of Lords,
although tiristocrntfc, was yet democratic, because the poorest boy might
by industry, perseverance and ability
rise to a seat in that high body, nnd
many had so risen.
"In l!>7;t the people of this country
rose in their might and hurled from
power the idol of iheir hearts because
they believed he had betrayed his
trust. Now what havo we today? There
sits In the House* of Commons a man
disqualified by seven judges, declared
tu have been guilty of almost every
electoral corruption; and on the other
side a man convicted and sentenced for
voting twice. The flrst parliament of
the Dominion contained such men as
Sir John Alexander Macdonald. Sir
George Cartier, lion. Alex. Mackenzie.
Hon. Edward Fllake and other great
men. When we compare that parliament
with today's We nre compelled to exclaim. 'How the mighty have fallen!'
"There are some men, such as Sir
Wilfrid Laurier and Mr. R. L. Borden,
who are absolutely above all thought of
wrong. They, however, are not thc
whole parliameut. Now, how are we
to wipe out this evil? By individual effort and by exercising our vote and our
influence for the return of men of honor
nnd uprightness." He concluded with
an earnest appeal for individual honor
and uprightness as the safety of this
young and prosperous country.

Study of Condition! and Meant

Sir,���Some little time ago I took the
liberty of addressing to the presa a
letter in which I propounded a aeries of
questions and -solicited answers thereto,
the chief object being to Induce the
people of British Columbia to carefully
examine into and thoroughly acquaint
themselves with the vast resources and
magnificent possibilities of this province.
I was delighted to receive thirty-eight
repliei, all of wblch Indicated thought;
some gave evidence of wide knowledge,
while a few showed great care and research. The essay signed "Raglan"���
which recently appeared in the local
papers���was considered by the committee entitled to the prize, and the information contained in said essay ls, In
my opinion, so valuable that I am
distributing copies by the thousand all
over the English speaking world.

my former letter, I once more venture
to trespass upon your valuable space to
supplement what has already been done,
ln the hope that many more persons
will become actively and devoutly Interested In the below-referred to subjects, which affect us all and are, or
should be, the peculiar cure of every
British Columbian. Let me ask, Mr.
Editor, what one can do to emphasize
the fact that thiB Is a most important
and momentous period in the history of
Canada, more particularly ln respect to
British Columbia. From my viewpoint
there are now cast upon the residents
of this province burdenB and responsibilities greater perhaps than ever before have been borne by so small a
people numerically, and if we are to lay
the foundation wisely, broadly and In
strength, with a view hi permanency
and with a Justified hope of success,
great care should be exercised by the
government and people to secure these
objects so necessary to provincial progress, and which, if realized, will make
this the banner province of the great
Dominion of Canada. I believe the geographical position, the physical conditions and the varied resources all Indicate that this Is the ultimate destiny
of our province.
Who of us has a definite policy to propose and a definite plan for working It
out? Do we know and realize our country, or are we waiting, Mi-cawber-llke,
for "something to turn up"? Are we
alive to the Bltuation, or are we drifting
as strawn on a swiftly-flowing river?
Can we Bee the trend of events, or are
we unwilling to be alert, and do we refuse to know and see? Let us study
ourselves, analyze our alms and aspirations, but above all, let us one and all
know our country, and with a loyal unselfish fidelity to an unalterable fixedness of purpose, which will admit of no
modification until the result is achieved,
be instant In season and out of season
ln assisting and urging forward development of British Columbia for the enduring, never-ending benefit and welfare
of Its whole people.
I, for one, Mr. Editor, stand ready to
do all and whatever I can and earnestly
desire to see many others equally ready.
1 appeal to those interested In the mining and the timber industry, to financial
and business men, professional men and
manufacturers, labor men and capitalists, and in order to engage the attention of thoBe who possess valuable information which should be made public,
I outline below seven questions and offer a prixe to the value of $50 -each for
the most complete answers. The prizes
may be taken In money, a handsome
piece of silver suitably engraved, or
donated to any of the public charities,
at the option of the winner.
Mining and Smelting.���Give a description, by districts, of the various
coal and mineral areas; an account of
the work now proceeding; detail production for 1906; value of same; average number of hands engaged; practical suggestions for developing and Increasing this most Important Industry.
Timber.���State specifically the variety, quality and quantity; present cut;
where marketed; what economies can
be effected by the utilization of the byproducts; what plan to be adopted and
Isy whom, looking toward the conservation or renewal of our great forest
wealth for the use of future generations.
Fisheries.���Where and how are fish
taken; the kind and quality of labor employed; are our salmon being exterminated; can this Industry be materlaly increased, and can greater financial results be obtained by saving the por
tlons of fish now destroyed; to what ex-
lent has deep-sea fishing contributed to
the provincial wealth; what are the possibilities of development and extension,
and the probability of permanency.
Agriculture.���(Fruit Culture, Dairying
and poultry.) The acrea of arable land;
kind of products and value of same;
which Ib the most profitable; market
conditions; total imports for 1906, in
quantities and dollars; number of persons now deriving a livelihood from the
soil.
Manufacturing.���Can B. C. become a
manufacturing country; what goods and
articles can we readily manufacture;,
and to what markets can the same be
sucessfully shipped; kinds of value
and present production; number of persons employed; average compensation
received.
Finance.���Official statistics show $54,-
760,000 produced within the province for
1906; tabulate the sources; what proportion remains in B. C. trade channels;
estimate the foreign and outside capital
Invested in the province, and Interest
and dividents paid on same. It the time
opportune ln respect of internal finance
to Introduce a plan similar to that presently obtaining In France.
Labor and Capital.���What practical
course can be adopted to harmonize
these Interests; is co-operation feasible;
if so, suggest a plan of application or
some other practical profit-sharing
scheme, bonuses or pensions based on
service or otherwise. Would a general
Insurance (life, accident or sickness, as
In Germany) be favorably received by
men and corporations; state the underlying cause for the great unrest and
strained relations now existing between
labor and capital, on Ihe American con-
tlntent. _*.���.'.
No paper should exceed 3,000 words,
and no one person should reply to more
than one question.
Communications must be signed or
accompanied by the card of the writer.
The competition will be open until the
1st of July next, and replies may be addressed to 'British Columbia,' P. 0.
Drawer 690, Victoria, B. C, with memo,
on face of envelop Indicating which
question the enclosure Is to answer.
It Is my Intention to secure the cooperation of one or more gentlemen familiar with the various subjects referred to ,to determine the winners and
award the prises.
Once more, Mr. Editor, I apologize
for trespassing upon your apace with a
communication of such length, but the
Importance of the subjects muBt be my
excuse. A. C. FLUMERFELT.

F*re in Fairview.

3hould  Be Annexed.
The fire at the dmith resilience in
Fairview yesterday morning conclusively established the desirability uf thut
.iiilmrb seeking annexation with the city
at once. As the residents there are now
situated rhey are absolutely without tire
protection, and tixu whole district may
ai any time be wiped out, and nothing
can ue done to check the progress of a
conflagration.   Thia is not only a source
if constant langer ru the residents of
Fairview, but a menace to the city as
well, for a flre might start in Fairview
and gain so much headway that a could
not he cheeked before it swept ail over
the city.    En the Interests of all.  the
piestiun should be dealt with at once.
An Assumed Name.
The pectiUar circumstances surrounding thu death of Thomas May. have led
to the discovery that the name May was
au assumed one. Hia right aame was
Thomas Tlmms. It was only by accident tha.. hia identity was established
after death. It appears that May, or
Timma, dropped dead in a h otel in
Cornwall. England. Hu was a stranger
at the hotel, and immediate search waa
nude amongst hia papers for some letter or paper hy wnich he could he iden-
Ufled. The only thing was a letter,
which was signed by a woman at Rochdale.   The letter was signed, 'Yonr !ov
mg siatur.  'Then followed the box
mini-tor The police at Rochdale were
Kimraunicated with and they discovered
���he woman who wrote the lerTer. She
arrived In CornwaH the following day
and identilied the dead mun as her
brother. Then it waa that the discovery
was made that May's right name was
Tlmms. The name May was assumed
when the deceased joined the army, and
had been adhered to after he secured
hia discharge. A brother of John Miles,
of Miles' Ferry, lu a neighbor of May's
dster in Rochdale, and it was be who
communicated the death to John Milea
in .Velson.

STRIVING   FOR  AN   I06AL.
And  Not Satisfied Until  Thsy Achisvs
the  Hundred   Per Cent
The man who is anybody anil who
sloes anything la certainly going to be
criticized and abused. This Is part of
the penalty of success. No true man
resents fair criticism, (or it. helps some.
Adulation and candy language are
dangerous, for they don't promote constant striving towards something better.
One can understand and admire the
spirit of the man who gathers In the
ninety and nine and haa the same zest
for winning the hundredth. That Is tbe
Semi-reiuiy idea. More men were last
year made known to Seml-reusly tailoring than ever before, but the Setni-
���eady people have the same jaunty
spirit in going after the men who are
still sceptics. The booklets tbe -jeml-
reudy people publish each year grow
more expressive and descriptive of the
sileul wblch they claim to bave attained.
