He saw no reason
check to the nioveiii"
It gave to hoys that formal study and
learning were for women only and beneath a man's Interest and attention.
He thought also lhal the discipline a
t.o> learned irom lady teachers waB of
a dlfl'eieut kind and less valuable to
boys over the age ol 10 or 12 than that
exerciacd by a master. Dr. Arthur
thought the causes could Im.* round iu
the inadequate salaries, ihe tedium and
monotony of the work and the prevalent
idea that a teacher Ib obsolete and useless after middle age. R. J. Clark
thought an early result of the movement would be an Impetus towards tlie
creation of private schools for be;, s.
taught by men. He believed that the
first cause w-aB the pioneer con iii .is
In both Canada and America where
men culd not be spared from the more
urgent work of clearing and cultivitlng
the land and developing industries. If
so the evil might he cured by the gradual manning of national. Intelligence,
but not at an early dale.
The programme committee was instructed to call on the new president.
Kev. F. 11. Graham, for a paper for the
January meeting and then to prepare

In a'l olber resiiects the bogus certificates are exactly like the genuine, and

New York, Dec. if* The eighth annual .ueeting of the National Civic Fed-

Park avenue hotel with more than 150
men and women prominent in various
walks of life in attendance. First Vice-
President. Samuel Gompers called the
meeting to order and introduced Andrew Carnegie who said:
"Let us dismiss from our minds the
idea that there is any cure possible
for financial troubles and panics. These
have their root in human nature and are
as certain as the tides and the storms,
the warm stimulated sunshine of summer, succeeded bv the frozen winter.
and are just as esse-^tlal for the regulation, clearance and purification of
business, as these changes are for the
general health of human life. The point
that demands attention Is that our banking system is unlike that of other countries. I agree thoroughly with those.
however, who believe that the present
is no time to urge the complete change
we need."
20,000 Club Ball.
The second ball of the season under
20,000 club auspices will be held In the
roller skating rink tomorrow evening.
While one of the clnb's objects is to
raise funds for its work, the entertainment committee, which is In charge of
the dance, fully appreciate the fact that
patronage of a public dance in Nelson
depends far more on the expectation
of pleasure and enjoyment than on the
worthiness or the object. The rink in
which the dance will be given has been
improved since the last time it was used
fnr such purposes. The heating and ven
tilation have been greatly Improved aud
the supper room nr.irl.- more comfort
able. The music will be furnished by
Curtis' orchestra. The lady patron

Rome, Dec. 16.���Piua X. today held
a secret consistory in the Vatican in
which he created four new cardinals
and consecrated several bishops. The
Pope delivered an elocution in which he
made reference to the tenacious persecution of the Redeemer and said that
His church had been attacked from all
sides in a warfare o-pen or dissembled.
The rights and laws of the church had
been trampled on even by those who
should safeguard them and the impious
and vulgar press had fought her even
to the extent of disturbing the public.
The Pontiff cited the recent disorders
In Italy. To this must be adued, he
continued, the disastrous propaganda
in the bosom of Catholicism itself,
which is being carried on by modernists who disdain the Pontifical authority and desire that authority to sanction a new faith and a new compromise
with the modernists, who would otherwise enlist themselves frankly aiming
'he enemies of the church. This would
be a less evil. As it is. they proclaim
themselves Catholics, partake of the sacraments and celebrate mass.
The conclusion of the elocution read:
"The episcopacy has accepted the papal
directions with eagerness and- has applied them with zeal, but the modernists persevere In their rebellion and
give manifest proof of their attitude
even in the press. May God enlighten
these misled ones.*'

In freight cars, of which so much was

equal to the demand, although there is
not the same surplus of rolling stock.
The anple crop, however, has now been
almost moved, and there will not be any
heavy demand until after the New Year.

opinion of the style of our statement is
not even interesting. But it seems generic. "Makes up in crudity what It
lacks in comprehensiveness" Is as nearly English as "dirge of lament." "Exists
for the purpose of howling" still seems
to us quite comprehensive. It is also
apparently quite comprehensible even
to the World, which without shame, almost wiih pride, acknowledges the
truth. If the last sentence means anything it means that all papers that do
not exist for the purpose of howling are
under the suspicion of being gagged,
Therefore the World, which is In a class

is certain. Our expressions of opinion
are under certain limitations from
which the World is quite free. They
are common sense, regard for the truth
and a conception of decency.

Cruise of American Navy to Pacific Has
Nothing  to do with Japan���
Just   for   Exercise.
Washington, 0. C. Dec. 1G.���Tht long
crus-st* to tlie Pacific Ijegun by the bat-
tlcaitlim of the Atlantic lleet today ls regarded in naval circles here as iho
gnatest naval niancuvpra and paacatnl
teats In the history of the United States.
It is the first time that such an elaborate programme haa been atempted by
the American navy. Borne unintelligent observers huve endeavored to establish a connection between lhe Japanese Immigration question and the visit of the fleet to the Pacific coast. In
other words, they have sought to construe the sending of the big fleet to
lhi* Pacific as a menace toward Japan.
No well-informed person in Washington
entertains any such idea.
On reaching Magdakna Bay, the battleships which sailed today will engage
in target practice, a practice in which
it is expected there will be great rival
ry between the Atlantic and Pacific
fleeta, the latter having also been order*
* d to rendezvous at that place. When
the target practice, which will he unusually extensive, including battle practice with a rough sea and record practice in smooth water, has been concluded, the combined fleets will head northward for San Francisco and on the way
will engage in many maneuvers.
The practice will include a division
into two fleets, each containing eight
battleships, eight cruisers and a small
torpedo flotilla, destroyers, repair ships,
supply ships, etc. These will be pitted
against each other, and will work out
the complex problems which have been
devised by the general board, as well
as others which may be suggested by
the flag officers of the fleet. Again, a
division will be made Into four fleets.
each headed by four battleships, and
still other problems will be solved.
(}raai benefit is expected from the work
on so elaborate a scale.
It is a nntworthy feature of the programme that all this will be done without resorting to a navy yard, there being none in the vicinity, and any repairs which may be necessary will have
to be made by the repair ships which
will accompany the fieets nnd in tho
mahine shops on board the ships them-
setvts The capuriiy of lhe ships will
also ba tested by the problem of feeding the thousands of officers and men
who compose the crews of this great
fleet, numbering Upward of 2f..000. Of
course some fresh supplies will be obtained in South American markets, but
while in the Pacific there will be few
such opportunities until San Francisco
is reached.
