left on account of having been burned.

While tlie Invitation lo the conference mentions only rearrangement or
the provincial subsidies as a matter
for discussion, there is nothing to prevent other subjects from being brought,
forward. There Is considerable spee-
ulalfou as to what will be included in
the list of other questions to be considered. Among those most likely lo
receive allenlion Is the question of
agreeing to make no further reductions In the representation of Prince
Edward Island, Nova Scotia and New
Brunswick. Then there Is tbo question of apportioning the section of the
Northwest Territory about Hudson
and James bays between Ontario, Manitoba and Saskatchewan, ho as to give
each of these provinces access to salt
Then; Is also the question of jurisdiction of the fisheries and tbo action
of Prince Edward Island and Quebec
in taxing commercial travellers from
other provinces nnd countries. The
preservation or Niagara falls and the
regulation by tlie province or Ontario
or companies incorporated and given
authority by the Dominion to do business .throughout Canada are two other
matters which nre likely to be discussed.

Fair Audience to Hear
the Orators
Kingsley and Hawthornethwaite Star
on Economic Problems of
the Day.
There were 88 people present at the
Socialist meeting I * * - *. I in Fraternity
hall lust evening. The audience com-
prised friend- uf the Sociullst party,
pssople ctiriotiB to leant and others
who expected to hear a clearly defined
exposition of Socialistic theories. The
latter were not disappointed, for the
speakers were emphatic in their pronouncements on the theories of So*
Clallam. ,
On the platform were J. H. Haw-
thormhwafte, leader of the parliamentary wing of the party in the legislative assembly; Mr. E. T. Kingsley,
editor of the Western Clarion; Mr. A.
W. iiarroil. president of the local Socialist union; Mr. J. Cartwright of
Nanaimo, and Mr. \V. II, Moore of
Pernio. Mr. ilarrod occupied tlie chair
and with the briefest Introduction
possible called the names of tlie ver-
Ions siieakers,
Mr. Cartwright was the first to take
Ihe floor and he did so as "a plain
working man, not aa a sky pilot, lawyer, doclor, or any member of the
non-producing class." He went back
to the days of chattel slavery and attempted to argue thut the present
wage system Ib the same thing under
another name, blaming the working
man for voting for the continuation of
a system which tliey do not want and
asking them to open their eyes and
see to it that their votes and power
arc used to discontinue the system at
once. He did not blame the capitalist, as under the present system. If it
were possible for him to be one he
would be a capitalist himself. He
said: "No man Is free who has to ask
another man for the privilege of working," and further, that thc Socialist
should vote for a syBtem under which
commodities would become things for
use and not for sale.
Mr. Moore spoke next. He briefly
referred to the strike among the miners nt Fernie, asiitl said it might become so serious n matter as to include
alt adjoining communities.
In arguing for the principles of Socialism he said that man by simply
using his powers of observation, without any study of Socialistic books at
all could come to the conclusion that
Socialism Is the ouly way to effect the
revolutions in society necessary for
the good of all.
Mr. Hawtliornthwaite was greeted
wiih a storm of applause, lie referred
to the modesty wiih which the previous speakers had expressed themselves. It made him feel almost like
apologizing for ills very existence. He
criticized llie excessive reticence of
(he "class," and said Ihnt (tie congress
now meeting iu Nelson would soon
dominate feeling nil over the world.
Me hnd said some strung things about
systems before and would again.
Speaking of Miurehes lie said "If every church wore wiped ofr the face of
lhe earth, if every religious Institution
wei,- gone out of existence, then all
fraud, hypocrisy and double dealing
woulil be wlps'sl oul." (There was loud
applause at  these remarks.)
lie referred lo the visit of "his excellency���yes, his excellency," and
the reported fuss that was made about
the same, but be said the time would
como when Nelson would be far famed
from the fact that this Is the second
city lu the province to ho honored
with a visit of the congress of Siclal-
Speaking of tin proent system '<f
capitalistic production, ho said, "It
spells nothing hut degradation and
misery, nnd Socialism stunds for the
stoppage of this Iniquitous system. In
Id ur 11 years at must the capitalistic
system would he stipplunted by Sucinl-
fsm. Yuu will live to see it, I nm
sure." Tho emancipation of the working classes must lie brought about hy
themselves, He feared compromise,
which Is now being offered by tho opposing class. If the workers did not
bring nboul the reforms which they desired they have no one to blame hut
themselves. Referring to Comrade
Kingsley, who was to ,'ullnw hlm. ho
called hlm "the greatest authority on
economic questions on the whole continent."    (Loud applause.)
The pulpit aud  trades unions could
no longer fake the working man by
saying that his interest art) in common with those of the capitalistic
ciasss. There Is an irreconcilable conflict between the two. He made a reference to the unfortunate com Itlo-t
existing at Fernie, touched in in hy
Mr. Moure, and said he understood
lhat the men were being driven from
their employment, their homes and
their  adopted  country.
Mr. Kingsley was then called on and
caught the crowd at once by reproving
the people who "snea-ked In aud took
thc hindmost seals." He said that he
was accused of having a "nasty
tongue," and the charge was true, but
he had acquired It while working for
wages and he Intended to keep on using it as long as the wage system
It Is Impossible to report Mr. Kings-
ley's speech unless it is reported ver-
hutiin. He Is a pleasing and forceful
orator, knowing and using all the
tricks of the platform; deep and philosophical In his reasoning, though not
always convincing, but always shooting over the heads of the very people
who need most to understand Ihe theories he propounds. Here are a few
sentences which will show the drift
of his argument. "Underneath the
mask of wages lies the same slavery
that underlaid the feudal systems."
"The masters of Ihe means of wealth
production are as cruel today as any
ever were when men were actual
lie defined capital by the Illustration of a large factory, wllh machinery In perfect trim, but with no men
to operate It. Consequently. It was
useless. Just as soon as men would
begin to work, however, it began to be
a wealth-producing center of Industry.
"Whose would be the cloth that came
forth from Ub looms?" he asked. Undoubtedly the men who operated the
machines, yet the capitalist took the
profits for himself. Calculating this
profit at *1 a dny for 1000 men, he
said the profit represented "the reward fnr the thrift and Industrv of the
man who didn't do a blasted thing."
At this stage many of the audience
were weary and retired from the
J. E. Annable and J. Hyslop Describe
New Westminster Fair.
J. E. Annable, John Hyslop and
James McPhee have returned from
the New Westminster fair. All speak
highly ln praise of It,
Of the exhibition generally Mr. Annable says: "The displays of fruit,
vegetables, farm and dairy produce,
poultry, live stock, were splendid, as
also were the art exhibits and manufacturers' displays.
"There was little attempt at out-
Bide attractions, less than we make
here, and far less than at Spokane.
So far as I know there were only balloon ascensions, lacrosse matches and
an Indian canoe race."
Of the fruit exhibits Mr. Hyslop
says: "We were easily first. Okan-
a<?a'i was away behind and the coast
_o.vb.ere. There was some very fine

"Ws \. re low on the district list,
of c ur:s<\ because there were many

ln which we couldn't attempt lo compote."

Chicago, Oct. 8.���Preliminary to the
world's championship baseball games,
which begin here today, members of
the National commission, members of
llie Chicago National and American
league teams, the umpires and others
directly concerned met here today.
Rules governing the series and the importance of preserving decorum on the
field were among the matters tluir-
otighly discussed. The advance sale
uf seats makes It a fnregone conclusion that a record-breaking crowd will
be present when play is begun In the
National loug.'o park at -.45 p. m. tomorrow. Anticipating that thousands
must lie turned away from the gates
local newspapers nave leased several

Baptist Missions in B. C.
There waa a meeting of the Hupllst
missionary board of Itritish Columbia
held nt New Westminster last Friday
to consider nnd definitely settle the
question of the appointment of a missionary evangelist for the provincial
work. Numerous applications were
presented for the position, but the recommendation of the Kootenay branch
of.the association was adupled, which
plaees Rev. C.  I'ndley In the field as
permanent missionary evangelist. The
arrangement Involves that Mr. Pad-
ley will set ns pulpit supply for other
ministers who exchange pulpits In the
Interests of evangelistic work, and
the plan Is to hold co-operative evangelistic meetings. This will no doubt
work out grently to tho advantage of
the denomination taking such aggressive measures.
Life Insurance Company    Investigates
Mysterious Death.
Toms River. N. J., Oct. 8.���Tbe trial
of Dr. Frank itrouwer, charged with
the murder of his wife, is on the court
calendar here today. Mrs. Itrouwer
died In September, 1006, after an Illness which was diagnosed at first by

Dr. Cate retired from the case but
later signed the death certificate setting forth that Mra. Brouwer died of

Soon after the funeral rumors began
to spread that there was something
suspicious about Mrs. Brouwer's death.
The fact that the nurses first employ'
ed bad left and Dr. Cate's retirement
from the case after he had been called aroused much suspicion and was
commented upon, and It was also said
that there had been quarrels between
Dr. Itrouwer and his wife over the administration of her parents's estate.
It waB also rumored that Mrs.
itrouwer had been Jealous of one of
the doctor's woman patients and that
this had caused a disagreement between the couple.
Frevonlnn E. Hyer of Long Beach, a
brother of the dead woman, heard of
these reports and finally began on Investigation. The Metropolitan Life insurance company, In which Mrs.
Brouwer was Insured for $1000 in favor of her husband, refused to pay tbe
policy and also began an inquiry as a
result of these investigations.

There are at present two daily papers fu the city of Nelson cordially endorsing the leadership of Hon. R, I-.-
Borden, the Conservative party's Canadian lund. The morning paper, in
singular consistency with iis political
eareer hastens to publish Borden's denial of any complicity wiih Foster,
Fowler et al. in the allegedly improper exploitation of some lands, and
compliments Borden on the cleanness
of his hands. ,
Yesterday morning however, It
quotes from the Toronto Telegram
and asks why Horden Is not more careful in the selection ol the material
from which his party is constructed,
thus endeavoring to entirely ii'iiiri.'j/.e
the value t?> of its editorial utterances.
It must be apparent to even the
most casual reader that Mr. Horden,
not being the leader of a government
���only that of an opposition party���
has not the same facilities for picking
and choosing who shall be members of
his party as he would have it if he
were premier.
The whole question, from a p illttcal
standpoint, can be easily answawd by
asking why does not Sir Wilfrid Lau*
rier take more care In selecting muse
who are his most intimate advisers in
the cabinet ami In the parly affairs':
We have iu the Laurier cabinet Hun.
VV. S. Fielding, recently unsealed for
corrupt practices on the part ot election agents. At the same time his reseating is being delayed by the courts
because he is himself to answer por-
sonal charges of corruption and illegality in connection with his election.
While Mr. Fielding is riding the gridiron on these questions, Hon. C S. Hy-
maii, also a member of the Laurler
cabinet is being attacked for corrupt
practices in his election of 190. and
from the reading of the evidence, us
for us it has been submitted, there
IfOUld appear little doubt as to the re-
unless the courts should prove
^obedient tu ihe behests of pai ly Interests.
Singularly both Fielding aud Hyman
have evaded Btralght questions and
have refused to divulge Information
necessary to the COndUCl ol the case
in each instance.
There is no necessary lUggeStl >n of
immorality in thus suppressing Information but there is an unioiinnate disposition on the part of Hie public to
suspect that where a man evades and
shuffles he knows sonic things wblcli
Ought to be told in the into.est of the
public Be that as it may, and time
will tell whether it is as it appears
or otherwise, the gibe hurled at Mr.
��� Horden for not selecting other material with which to surround himself Is
like one of those schoolboy acts of
foolish defiance when he Is apparently
ignorant of the fact that the other side
carries the big stick.
Neither Mr. Foster nor Mr. Fowler
baa ever been indicted with charges
of  corruption   iu  their election   meth
ods and as to the morality of their
acts as private business men the
Courts have yet   to  pronounce.
The comment of the Slocan Mining
Review anent the editorial faculties of
the Daily Xews are perhaps not so
far out.
And   now  comes a howl    from    the
Liberal press because the government
is making money by issuing timber licenses.     The   Daily   Xews,   of   course,
ever ready to adopt any feature which
is  likely  to  create  a   rupture,  whines
the loudest.    Yet a glance at  its columns will be sufficient to prove that
the timber boom    is causing    dollars
and dimes to flow into 'its coffers. Do
they  want  the  government  to   revoke
an act which, as  it happens,  is now
the means of putting money  into tbe
treasury?   Their contention ls that licenses  are  issued   indiscriminately  to
Speculators.    Supposing  the strict letter of the law "to cut aud carry away
timber" were enforced, it would be a
very short time before    the   province
would be depleted of its timber and a
big asset lost.    We believe, under existing  circumstances,   this speculation
is good, good  for    the    province and
good for the people, for thousands of
square mites  of  limber  lands   will   be
siaketl and licenses regularly renewed
thereon,  and  not  a   stick   will  be  cut
on most of them fur the next 12 years.
If the licenses are allowed to expire,
(he timber is again owned by the province.     If  the   licenses  are   kept   alive
for a few years,   the   revenue to   the
country   Will   be Immense.      No;     the
shortsighted policy of Editor Deane is
lou shallow.    He is producing a newspaper  which  is a   credit  tu the  Koot-
eniy country, but when he dabbles in
politics he appears   to lose   grip   of
himself.���Slocan .Mining Review.
One of the most pleasing as well as
most touchink evidences of the existence of the Christian spirit between
churches and coming from a quarter
where, according to theological traditions, such things should be last looked  for, is reported  from  Sandon.
The Methodist minister at Sandon
recently returned to his appointment
plus a bride and an enthusiastic welcome was prepared by the people of
Sandon for the event. Among those
who look pari in the welcome exercises was a newspaper man, tbe enterprising editor of lhe Slocan Mining
Review. The striking feature of the
performance is reported in the Review
as follows: "Rev. Father D. Jeunnolte
then said he was called upon to fulfill
a mosl pleasing duty, which consisted
of presenting to the bride and bridegroom a small token of great regard
from Ihe Catholics of Sandon. He
lrusted Cod would bless their union,
and Ihey would enjoy a long and pros*
parous life. The presentation consisted of a handsome ease of cutlery and
a cut glass salad bowl."
The only comment that appears
necessary on such an occasion is that
made once before���some thousands of
years ago we believe���when a man
who must have seen something like
said: "Behold how good and pleasant
a thing it is to see brethren dwelling
together In unity."

"is your    milkman    reliable?"

Hotel   Prosecutions at Grand   forks-
Sensational Bear Story.
Grand Forks, Oct. 8.���During tbe
lant few days excitement has reigned
Supreme here among local hotel men,
as lhe ciiy police commissioners issued summonses against the proprietors of the Yale, Province, Victoria,
Val bulla and Square hotels, to appear
before them Saturday evening and answer to certain complaints regarding
gambling having been permitted on
their premises. It appears that -hit:
matter originated by a witness in giving evidence in the police court a few
days ago, when lie stated lhat he had
been  gambling ait the Province hotel.
a. c. Button, who appeared   for   the
proprietor of the Province hotel, after
considerable discussion succeeded In
having the charge against his client
dismissed, while the complaints
against lhe other hotel men were postponed until next Friday evening, lt
appears thut some months ago ttie police commissioners issued a pointed
notice warning the hotel men not to
allow gambling on their premises, aud
Mayor fftitton and Commissioner
Whiteside are particularly anxious to
huve any infraction of that order severely ilcallh with. At the commissioners meeting Saturday evening a
sensation was sprung on those present
when A. Traunweiser, proprietor of
the Yale hotel, address Mayor Button
aud demanded that the case against
his hotel be dealt with forthwith,
Whereupon the mayor replied that he
could appear when called Upon later
on, when Mr. Traunweiser said that
lie had been served with at notice to
appear there, and he demanded that
the matter be dealt with, lt Is intimated by the knowing ones tbat in the
Yule hotel gambling case there is a
"nigger" in the woodpile and some
sensational evidence involving prominent  citizens  will  be  forthcoming.
To have ai large brown bear sleep
in his kitchen all night after ft had
helped itself to all the available eatables within its reach was the startling experience ol Oluff Kverson, a pioneer prospector of this valley. It ap*
pears thut a couple of nights ago Mr.
Ever sou, who resides on his mineral
claims, some two miles eusl of Grand
Forks, retired at the usual time, and
before doing so took the lower sash
out of the kitchen window for ventilation, und during the night was awakened by hearing very loud noises in
the kitchen. He at once proceeded to
iuveBtigate and found thut some animal, presumably a large dog, was helping himself to the provisions. He armed himself with a shotgun and entered
the kitchen, when a big brown bear
jumped out of the window aud was
lost to view in the timber. The old
prosj>eetor then went back to bed,
thinking tlie bear hud gone, and slept
soundly until an early hour in the
morning, when he was awakened by
one of his neighbors, who called to
him to get up us there wus n bear iu
iiis kitchen. Mr. Eversou went round
the house on the outside to investigate, when bruin again juinued out of
the window, but not before he had received a heavy shot from the old pros-
pector's gun. Though badly wounded
the bear again disappeared in the timber. On investigation it was ascertained ihat Ihe animal had eaten several loaves of newly made bread, about
ban a ham and nearly two dozen fresh
eggs, and from appearance?   he   had
apparently slept a portion of the night
in the kitchen after taking his hearty
repast. Today hunting parties of men
and boys -are out searching for bruin,
and nil are eager to get u fair shot at
the cheeky bear.
Total  September    Shipments    Far Exceed Those of Last Year.
Winnipeg,   Oct.   8.���a     statement
showing the number of curs of wheat
and other grains received at Port Willi.tin dining the mouth of Beptember,
I.HHl, has been sent oul from the ofllce of the grain lns|>ectnr at that
The total number of cars of wheat
for September, 11106, was 9759, us
afcatost .'I7_7 lusl yenr. Of these 1267
were No. 1 hnrd, as against .151 last
year, showing a very satisfactory
stale of affairs. In September, 1906,
3008 cars of northern were received,
its against 21124 in Beptember, 1905.
This year there were 6S3, and 117 cars
of No. 2 and No. ',i Northern respectively, ns against 609 ond 66 last year.
The smut evil seems to hold its
own persistently. Last month 316
curs of smutty Wheat were received,
ns against 214 lust year. Foul seed
seems to huve figured largely this
year, as 818 cars were rejected on
this account and only 146 lust year.
In other grains tlie shipments were
much greater than In the correspond-
month last year. Of oats, 227 cars
wero received, as against 17 last year;
nf barley 116, as against 44; of flour
11, ns against 4.
Altogether 5162 cars of grain were
reported at Fort William ln 1906. In
September last year the total number
was -1802. The care over C. P. R. rails
numbered 3865, while over the C. N.
