British    Premier's    Recovery    Believed
Now to Be Possible���^-Changes to
Follow Retirement.
London, April 4.��� The prospects
for the recovery of Sir Henry Campbell
Banncrman seem brighter now than a
week ago. Convalescence, however,
ure'e- the. m -st favorable circumstances;
will be very slow. The prime minister
has now intimated to his colleagues
his desire to be relieved of office, and
a public announcement of bis resignation may be expected any day. It ls
understood that communications on the
subject are now passing between London and Biarritz, where King Edward
is staying. According to well informed
gossip some difficulty will be experienced ln a redistribution of the government portfolios owing to the rival claims
of John Morley, secretary of state for
India, David Lloyd George, president of
the board of trade, and Reginald Mc-
Kenna, president of the board of education.

of deputies tomorrow. They have determined to limit the republican deputies to 12. A total of 146 deputies are
to be chosen. The Republicans, how-
every, claim victory also. The efforts
of the secret police in Investigating tbe
tragedy of February 1st, when King
Carlos and the Crown Prince were shot
down, have developed apparently conclusive evidence that the death of former Premier Franco was decreed by a
secret Republican society in spite of
the protest of the Republican leaders.

Concession to Faddists.
Washington, April 4.���As a result of
the numerous complaints of postal card
collectors of the post cards being defaced by the post marking, the postmaster general has ordered discontinuance of the post marking of cards at

Conservative Association
Getting Ready
Outlook in Three Ridings aalreadj Visited���Yale-Cariboo Considered
Safe For the Cause.
L. S. Eaton, of Victoria, provincial
organizer for the Conservative party,
has been in Nelson s.uce Thursday
night, and will leave tomorrow morning
for East Kootenay.
The purpose of his visit ls to inspect
local organizations and give assistance
where necessary in Improving the co-
operaUon of district associations.
Mr. Eaton has covered three of the
seven provincial ridings, Victoria. Bur-
rard and Tale-Cariboo. In the two city
ridings the organization is as nearly
perfect as possible and the party's prospects of victory bright, amounting: to a
certainty in the case of Vancouver,
where the efficient work that won so
decisive a vlotory In the last provincial
campaign has not been allowed to deteriorate.
In Yale-Cariboo also the on'look, Mr.
Eaton thinks, is highly encouraging.
Although the geographical nature of the
constituency makes effective central organization difficult, the field ts well
covered by the enthusiastic ajsd effl- .
clent local a.sociatl. js. Thi-- was true
in a great degree of the whole ridini-
but especially so of Kamloops and-
Okanagan districts. And everywhere
Mr. Eaton found the conviction that If
MarUn Burrell can be Induced to bear
the ConservaUve standard, his defeat
is Impossible.
Of Kootenay Mr. Eaton is not yet prepared to speak as there are many seo-
Uons that he has not yet visited.
In all districts great Interest has been
taken by the acUve workers of both
parties In the preparation of the new
voters' lists. Many names have been
added ln every riding and the applications to strike off names of those who
have died or removed will clean the list*
Mr. Eaton is employed by the executive of the provincial Conservative association. His work Is not being done
in the dark. It Is his purpose to so organize the party throughout the whole
province that It can never be taken by
surprise but will be ready at a day's
notice to enter on a campaign with accurate knowledge of its strength and
also of at least the numerical strength
of the enemy.
"Canadian Club."
Detroit, April 4.���A United States district Judge has issued an order preventing the United States customs officials
of this district and the United States
food inspectors from interfering with
the Importation of a brand of whiskey
known as "Canadian Club" and manufactured by Hiram Walker and Sons,
Limited, of Wakerville, Ontario. Judge
Swan Issued an order to show cause
on April 20.
Tbe Walker company objects to adding the word "compound" to Its label. It holds that Its product is not a
compound and tbat If It were It would
be entitled to admission under section
eight of the food law wbich refers to
articles that have so distinguished a
name as to preclude deception of purchasers.
New Pugilistic Star.
Los Angeles, April 4.���George Hem-
sic, and Phil Brock, of Cleveland,
fought ten rounds before the Pacific
Athletic club last night. The result
was a surprise, Brock making a showing that would at least have entitled
him to a draw If a decision had been
rendered. In point of cleverness Brock
showed  to  the best advantage.

only to tbe cabinet, uud irom whose ue-
cisioa ti,<.ie is uu appeal. For this Uu-
traut Interference w,in tue freedom ol
elections there Ls no precedent in tbe
liiuio.} ol tbe British Umpire. The oiu
Uuruiuiou lists, abolished viiili so uiucli
parade ul uoi.ucul virlue by air Wilfrid
Lauiier, were, it is true, compiled by
Conservative appointees, but they were
complied aud reused at regular Inter

appeal, and aiup.e opportunity for its
exercise, to a judge, uud in those days
judgeships were not awarded for party
service. What is now proposed "is liuii
puruzau Officials, of absolutely blank
qualifications, shall have the linal decision as to the right of Canadians to
the  franchise.
We do not propose at present to discuss the application of this monstrous
proposal any place but in British Columbia. In this province there has Just
been completed by all political parties
the preparation for registration of new
vuleis and revision of the old lists.
There has never been lhe slightest suspicion of unfairness ln the preparation
of those lists. On this point our Liberal
contemporary says;
"We do not know why Mr. Aylesworth
should seek to have special Dominion
lists in British Columbia and we have
been waiting to learn what explanation
he has to offer on this point. The provincial .ists, under ordinary circumstance are, or should he quite satisfactory. Th-.;. were used in the last Do-
rniuiou elections and we heard no complaint ui any injustice being done to
any pir.-oii properly entitled to vote.
The system ul registration m Britis.i
Columbia is aa iiear perfect as it is ever
likely to be aud, iu our opinion, is absolutely lair to ail panics. There .s
practically manhood suffrage iu i... . .
Columbia, and if a mau be nui registered, who ia entitled to have ins name on
the list, it is usually his own fault So

that passage ls eminently fair and frank

We have no more intimate acquaintance than our contemporary with tlie

guess at the inlluence brought to bear
by those in British Columbia who fear

Bus, with our contemporary's admission, with far better knowledge than
Air. Aylesworth can have, that tlie
change is utterly unnecessary, so far

Answer   to   the   Jews'   "Whom   Makest
Thou  Thygelf?"���Serv.cea  In
Churches Tomorrow.
Tomorow will be the Fifth Sunday In
Lent, the second Sunday before Batter.
No holy days occur during the week.
The gospel for the day Is St. Johns
account, in his gun pel, of Christ's con-
troverty with the Pharisees, in which
the accused Him of demoniacal pos-
MMlon, a charge obviously Insincere
because in all other records of demoniacal possession the victim Is demented,
deformed and usually mute. The most
Significant facts are Christ's replies.
He closed the controversy with the
pregnant statement: "Before Abraham
was I am," thus asserting his existence
from the beginning, His immortality
and His Divinity, lhe words unless the
accuracy of St. John's report fe denied
or disputed, disposing ot the attempted
interpretation of Him as merely a great,
perhaps the greatest human master.
Leader and   teacher.
Even more significant perhaps is:
" 'Whom makest thou thyself?" Jesus
answered: 'If I honor Myself, my honor
is nothing. It is my Father that honor-
eth Me, of whom ye say that Ho is your
God.' "
The conclusion is unavoidable that
the closing words, quoted first, were
intended aa a deliberate assertion ot*
His Divinity. But the conclusion is unassailable upon other grounds. The so
called* nationalist attempt to reduce
Christ to the rank of the great bUBBJUi

approach to the sell-abnegation, to Lhe
infinite compassion, to the Conscious
u-hority of Christ.
To question the authenticity of the
wo ds attributed to Him is only to
create a difficulty as great. If the recog-
n zable super-humanity of His receded words be attributed to the evange-
ists, it is only exalting to superhuman
rank four men insiead of One.

Menace to  Health.
A citizen called attention today to
the fact that the streets are being cleaned in a manner that creates a greater
danger than if they were left dirty, me
tilth of the road beds accumulated during the months of snow and frost is
being scraped up and raked together
and dumped into the Ward street ravine below the Baker street bridge. The
complainant points out that if there be
any germs of disease iu the contents
of the streets they must taint the air of
tlie most frequented part of the city.
He suggests that If there Is no other
way of disposing of the dirt, the authorities might at least minimize the danger
by throwing lime into the ravine also.

beginning to realize that It pays best to
cultivate small tracts properly. In a few-
years the whole neighborhood surrounding Harrop will be a veritable fruit
Too  Eaay,
Two lady members of a travelling
theatrical company have had an experience which is rather unusual in Canada,
and are not yet through with the adventure. The company played in Nelson and then went over to the Boundary, where their first engagment was
In Grand Forks. After the play two
gentlemen made the acquaintance of
two ladles of the company. They adjourned to the parlor of the hotel, and
proceeded to enjoy conversation mid
wine, both sparkling. The conversa.
Hon would probably be uninteresting.
The next event wus the entry of a third
man who was introduced as 'Judge ���."
A brilliant suggestion struck Home one
and execution followed promptly, Tim
"Judge" solemnized a double wedding.
In the cold, gray dawn of the morning
after the brides went to Phoenix with
the company and fulfilled their engage
inents. Returning the next morning to
rejoin their husbands, they mude a
startling discovery. The "Judge" was
