Comparison of American
Persistent  Appeals  of  Presidents
Backed by Public Opinion
���Canada's Need.
Ottawa, June 6.���Our friends the
Americans have had their troubles with
the public service, as we all know.
With their genius for organization, for
exaggeration and for expression, they
at once have systematized public plunder and Jobbing in offlce, and have
lagged the system with the appropriately opprobrious names which go so far
towards rousing public opinion. We all
know tbat they have a Spoils System;
we know that their public life is ravaged by hands of office-seekers who constitute the "henchmen" of the leaders
who have posts to bestow; and we
have a most Pecksnlffian habit of thanking the Almighty that we are not as are
those desperate Americans.
As a plain matter of fact, we are
milea behind those Bame Americana tn
that very matter of civil service reform.
First, they have and have had for years,
an active Civil Service Reform League;
so far, no body of Canadians has
thought It worth while to do anything
so Quixotic. Then, public opinion,
whipped on by the league, bas prevailed
with the politicians to an extent unknown In our self-righteous Canada.
Two yeara ��go the position was Borne-
what aB follows:
Total Federal offices   271,000
Of  which thero were subject to
competitive examination 134,500
Or Just about half. Imagine balf ot tbe
offices bestowable by the Dominion government awarded without regard to the
politics of the recipient! Surely the
British North America Act and the
Prlv> Council will be Invoked before our
people are permlttod to depart bu far
from the genius of our Institutions.
It was Andrew Jackson who Introduced the Spoils System, which remainB
the last word and the logical outcome
of appointment to offlce by politicians,
and once his successor Van Buren, was
out of the way, tbe work of. resenting
its domination began. In 1853���tbe year
which saw the triumph of open competition ln India���Congress took that step
which the British government had tried
so long before, and which we in Canada
are trying still; It required pass examinations in certain departments, but did
not make these examinations competitive. The results were what they had
been in England, and have been in
Canada���the absolutely ignorant were
excluded, hut no substantial relief was
gained from the nuisance of political
appointments, or from tho twin evil of
partisan dismissals from which Canada
so far has been moderately free, but
which Is becoming dtsqulotlngly common.
# Things were very bad during and
after the Civil War, and President
Grant appealed to CongreBS for relief.
On hlB urgent demand, In 1871, Congress
passed an act empowering the presl-
dent "to proscribe such rules and regulations for the admission of persons to
the Civil Service of the United StateB na
will he beat to promote the efficiency
Under Ihis act, President drant appointed a commission, which formulated
a complete ByBtem of competitive examinations. In transmitting lis report to
Congress, tho proBldont promlsod, him-
solf, to observe all the rules, but drew
attention lo tho fact that without further legislation they would not bo binding upon hla successors. The Lower
Uouso showed what It thought about
Civil Service reform by voting In 1874 to
repeal the law; tho Senate refused to
agree to this, but the law, though it remained on the statute hook, waa loft
without any appropriation for carrying It
out. So the movement met with a check,
and the check came directly from the
Legislature, and from the more popular
branch nt that. Put not your trust In
parliaments, In matterB of Civil Service
reform, and patronage, at leaat.
The presidents continued to demand
reform���Hayos, Garfield and Arthur.
They had reason to, for Garfield's death
Ib to be laid at the door of the Spoils
System.  Publlo opinion as early as 1876
was stirred to the point or Inducing the
Republican party to give civil service
reform a place on Its platform.
Mark how public opinion continued to
do the work. President Garfield was
murdered In 1881, by a disappointed office-seeker; he wsb a direct victim of
the system. Then the people saw the
point. That same autumn. In 1881, the
Civil Service Reform League was organized. Congress did not see the ihiIiii,
In that same year of 1881 it laughed at
reform. Then Ihe November elections
happened: and Congress was scared. In
January, 1883, a new Civil Service Act
was jiassed. Garfield's murder hud not
influenced It; public opinion, backed by
the Civil Service Reform League, had
clubbed lt Into submission.
This new law embodied the provisions
of the law of 1871 and some features
drawn from English experience. Its
principal characteristics are;
1. The president may appoint a commission which shall devise suitable
rules and regulations for securing open
competitive examinations.
2. Successful candidates shall undergo
a period of probation.
3. Party assessments on offlce holders���a peculiarly American evil which
has begun to appear in Canada���are for-
4. No recommendation from a senator
or member of the lower house shall be
received or considered by any board of
So much for the principles. The
method adopted to put the new system
Into force was the classification of officers according to salary; those carrying medium salaries were selected aa
the point of attack, and the president
was authorized to extend what ls termed
classification list, i.e., the lilt of poets
under the merit ByBtem.
Since then an Increasingly enlightened public opinion, guided by the Civil
Service Reform League, has fought
steadily, (1), to keep thp "classified
list" Intact���for the politicians constantly are trying to evade its restrictions. (2), to extend the list. At present ahout half the Federal officers are
redeemed from the Spoils System. Congress still Ib the enemy of this particular type of reform; Its members are too
anxious for patronage for lt to be trusted Part of the work of the League
consists of watching Congress and
arousing puplic opinion when It offends.
The Spanish-American war was used by
the spoils-mongers to gain their one victory; President McKinley was moved to
draw 100,000 officers from the classified
list, and Congress passed a retrograde
act. President Roosevelt, however, made
up the leeway which had been lost.
"As parliament was for years the
great obstacle to the reform of the Civil
Service ln England, so congress, greedy
of the power of patronage, blocks the
path of good government ln the United
States. Nothing but an educated public
opinion will compel congress, as it did
parliament, to consent to purer and better methods of administration."
So says a brochure of the American
League. Quite remarkably like conditions here.

In the following paragraphs. The flrst

"I went to bed and to sleep. I do not
know how long after I heard a rapping
and knocking on my door. I got up nnd
Inquired. I suid: 'I will let you In
shortly.' I went Into a large bathroom ad-
Joining my room and turned on the light,
and dressed myself sufficiently to muke
myself presentable. Thon 1 opened the
door. I think the ladies came In. One
of the ladles was very much ngilatod,
and was bound to leave thc hotel. She
said that some porter hnd Insulted her,
arid Bhe wouldn't remain ln the hotel. 1
hunted up a porter, who said thore waB
no necessity for the ladles to leave tbo
hotel, and made an apology for tho remarks mado by tho other porter. However the ladies decided to leave, and,
It being midnight or later, I decided
to accompany them, aa a matter of courtesy, and drove to anothor hotel In
the city."
"I mado my flrst round ot Ihe hotel
at 12 o'clock. 1 buw two women go In
the direction of Mr. Emmerson'B room.
I did not know who they wore. I made
my second round at 1:30. I heard loud
talking and laughing in Mr. Einnicrsou's
room. -The laughter was very hilarious,
and the voices wero those ofladles and
a gentleman. I tapped at the door, but
there was no Immediate answer. I
heard sounds of people moving about.
Then a tall lady came to tho door. The
room was In darkness, but thore was a
light in the rear. I told the lady not
to make such a noise, and she closed.
1 reported to the night clerk, and ln
consequence went back to the room.
The same lady opened the door. I told
them all they would have to make less
noise or get out. When I left I saw one
of the ladles following me; the gentleman went away ln the other direction."
I     ]0R VISIT
Dutch Government Will
Peace Conference Makes Its Own
Rules���Will Probably Issue
Officbl Reports.
The Hague, June 5.���The general
plan of the proceedings at the second
peace conference will probably closely
follow the procedure of the first congress held in 1899. Practically nothing
has been worked out in advance. The
Dutch government, realizing that the
representatives of the 46 powers who
will assemble here June 15th, must be
the complete masters of the situation,
has refrained from in any way attempting to call or arrange the programme
or method of procedure. It simply of-
lers its hospitality to the conference,
ihe same ls true of Russia. The ar>
rangeiuents up to the present time,
therefore, simply cover the opening session, when Mr. Nelidoff, the RusBlan
ambassador to France, will cal) the conference to order and make an address,
extending his sovereign's greetings to
the delegates. Ur. Jonkher Van Tots
Van Gourdain, the Dutch minister for
foreign affairs, will relpy in an address
of welcome on behalf of Queen Wllhel-
miua. Thereafter it will remain for
the conference lo decide how it will pro.
lt ls safe to assume, however, that
the general line of procedure of the
former conference will be duplicated.
The first thing in order will be the
appointment ot committees to consider
ihe various BubJectB inscribed upon the
Kussiau programme. These will hardly
number more than five. Unless the
question of the reduction of limitation
of armaments is Injected into the proceedings at the outset, ln which event
the main struggle may be at once precipitated, the plenary body will probably not begin for 10 days or a fortnight, in order tbat the committees may
have an opportunity to prepare their reports for subiniBBion. ln general it is
not expected that the full conference
will meet more than onoe a week until
the work of committees Justifies more
frequent sessions.
The opening session will probably be
public to the extent at least of admitting
a few distinguished guests and press
representatives but the sessions of the
conferences and of the committees will
doubtlessly be strictly secret. The question of giving out a public statement
of the progress made will be decided
by the conference Itself. This year
many of the delegates favor the issuance daily, lf possible, of a brief semiofficial Btatement. The French language,
as ln 1899, will be the official language
of the conference, although'tho advent
of South Americans and the growing influence of English rule may lead to
some relaxation of the rule with regard
to tho debates, and may result ln a compromise.
The government's official entertainment of the delegates will not be lavish,
but will rather be In the same gopd
taste as Its attitude with reference to
the programme. Nothing will be arranged which could In any way Interfere with the work on tho conference.
Parliament has appropriated 100,000
gulden ($40,000) for the reception of
the country's guests, but this covers
the expenses ln connection with the
sittings ot the "Hall ot the Knights." In
addition the government will give nn
entertainment, the nature of which has
not been definitely determined, except
that it will not be an evening reception.
More probably it will take the form of
a day trip or excursion to some Inter
estlng historical spot, olther by bout or
iriiln. The municipality will give a formal reception. Queen Wllholinlna, out
of her privy purse, will also entertain
the delegates as a body. She will probably show hor hospitality at "Hot Loo,"
her country seat, about an hour's ride
from The Hague.
Beyond theae official functions, there
will probably be much private entertain-
Ing by the Dutch aristocracy and among
the diplomats themselves, ln nddtlon,
the delegates will not lack for distraction In their Idle moments.
Minister Hill Is exceedingly anxious
lhat the ceremony of the laying of the
corner stone of the Pslnce of Peace, to
which Andrew Carnegie has subscribed
11,600,000, shall take place before thc
conference adjourns. The site of the
building hns been chosen In a park
called the "Benoordethoutsche Pediler,"
but the plans have not yet been definitely approved. The lowest estimate of
the duration of the conference is six
weeks nnd the prevailing Impression Is
that It will be In session between two
and three inonthB,
London, June 6.���Although Tbe
Hague conference meets within a fort
night, the British delegates bave not
yet been instructed as to the attitude
they shall maintain on the subjects included In the Russian programme or
on other questions to be introduced by
the powers participating In the conference. This delay in notifying the delegates Is the result of the heavy parliamentary programme, which keeps the
members of the cabinet busy, and the
difficulties the government has had
since the collapse of the Irish Councils
There have been several cabinet meetings at which Sir Edward Grey, the foreign secretary, has brought up the question of The Hague peace conference,
but the Associated Press Ib Informed of.
flclally that the cabinet has not yet
reached a decision on any point, and
that imaslbly another week will elapse
before Ihe delegates can be Instructed.
Chief Witness for Prosecution Taken to
Boise From Prison.
Boise, June 5.���Harry Orchard, the
self-confessed murderer of former Governor Steuenberg, who will go on the
stand today to give testimony ln tbe
case agalnBt William D. Haywood, was
brought into Boise laat night from the
Idaho penitentiary. For aome hours be
was closeted with the attorneys for
the prosecution. This is the first time
Orchard has been out of the penitentiary since he was brought from Caldwell
immediately afler the assassination ol
the former governor. Notwithstanding
the report of possible violence to Orchard on the part of friends ot Haywood,
the prisoner was surrounded with but
little precaution on the drive into tne
city. Orcbard is looking well and shows
little apprehension of the ordeal he will
be called upon face while he ls on the
Rosalaird Board of Trade Objecti to Uee
of Passenger Train for Shunt*
ing   Freight.
At a meeting of the Rossland board of
trade held last night the following resolution was adopted:
Resolved, That the present passenger service provided by the C. P. R. ln
an dout of Rossland, wholly inadequate
to the needs of the city, and ruinous
to the best interests of the district That
passengers are now subjected to wholly
needless delays between Trail and Castlegar, owing to the passenger trains being assigned to the duty of attending
to local freight. That at the present
time the schedule is framed to permit
of the passenger train from Rossland
going into Trail and climbing the hill
at China Creek with local freight
That a train leaving Rossland at 7
p. m. can easily leave Castlegar at 9
p. in., and arrive at Nelson at 10:10
p. in.; that the morning train Bhould
leave Rossland at 7:30 a. m��� and reach
Castlegar at 9:16 a. m. to connect with
the Boundary train, and that the passenger train connecting with the boat
at Castlegar Bhould not be held to shunt
freight at Robson, Castlegar and Smelter Junction, as at present, but should
take passenger trains through without
such delay;
That a copy of this resolution be for-
warded to the superintendent of the local division of the C. P. R., and lf no
satisfactory rdply is received within a
week, that a full statement be forwarded to the Board of Railway Commissioners at Ottawa, and that such board
be requested lo take energetic stepe to
compel the C. P. R. to give adequate

American Owned Horse With America! Jockey Up Captaes English Bbe Rlbboa.
London, June 6.���The times may
have changed and the chronic presence
of the motor car may have wiped ont
much ot the traditional fun and frolic
along the road to and at Epsom on
Derby Day but Interest in ihe gieot
classic event of the Brltlsa turf is unflagging, and even greater this year than
ever before. This in spite of the fact
that the race promises, for the first
time in years, to be a purely Angl *
Saxon, or nearly altogether Hibernian
event Tbe main interest today seems
to center ln the Irish bred, Irish trained
or Irish owned horses. Slieve Gallion
by Qallinule out of Reclusion, a strong
first favorite was bred in Ireland by his
Irish owner, Capt Greer, but was
trained ln England. He will be ridden
by Hlggs, an Englishman -who learned
to ride in Ireland. Galvanl by Laveno
out of Gallinary, second favorite, was
bred ln Ireland, bnt Is owned by an
Englishman, Major Eustace Loder.
This horse haa an Irish trainer and will
be ridden by an Irish jockey, Dillon.
Richard Croker's well-liked Orby by
Orme oat of Hhoda B., waa bred in Ireland out of an American dam and will
be ridden by an American jockey, J.
RelS. Next ln favor is Lord Rosebery's
Beasonian by Velasqu-ex out of Gas, who
will be ridden by "Danny" Moher.
Much fancied ta Woolwino by Mart
Agon out of St. Windeline, bred ln England and owned by a Scotchman, Col.
W. Baird. Madden, the English jockey,
will ride this horse. Each of the foreign
horses ls strongly tipped and backed.
The field waa smaller than last year,
but lt ls not thought there will be any
diminution in the crowd.

Rome, June 6.���A tragic Incident took
place today < during a review ot the
troops by King Victor Emmanuel and
Queen Helena. As a part of the manoeuvres a military balloon waa sent up
to a height ot 100 feet, with Captain
UlllvolII ln Ihe car. A storm which
been coming up, burst suddenly, and
the thousands ot spectators were horrified to see a flash of lightning strike
the gas bag. There was an enormous
burst of flame and a terrific detonation,
and the collapsed balloon with Its
dangling car fell to the earth over a
mile from the scene of the review.
Crowds of persons afoot and ln automobiles and other conveyances, rushed in
the direction where the balloon had
fsllen. Captain Ulllvylll was found alive
but unconscious. He was placed ln an
automobile and rushed to an hospital,
where he died without regaining consciousness. King Victor Emmanuel and
the military authorities went to the hospital after the review to inquire after

Toklo, June 6.���A deputation from the
Progressive party waited on Foreign
Minister Hayashi today and asked for
an explanation of the government's apparent Inaction and want of confidence
in the presence of grave diplomatic
questions both with China and the United States. Tho former ls accused of
deliberately obstructing the advancement ot Japanese interests ln Manchuria. The deputation alao called attention to facts strongly Indicative of racial

Wednesday, June 5th, 1907.
Tie question of reforming the public
���aervlce of Canada will uot down.
Whether tho "pull" that Is the chief determining factor In all appointments
and promotions ho political, personal,
Boclal or sporting, is of little consequence. "Pull* of any kind must he destroyed.
Civil service examinations nt presenl
are a farce. Pasting the test docs not
by any means insure appointment, anil
failure of a favorite Ib not permitted
to disqualify.
Wrltton examinations In language,
history, geography and mathematlos
may not ho un Ideal test of fitness fur
the  public service, tint  any automatic
test is Infinitely preferable to the preaent system of appointments,
The Influence of "pull" la baneful on
all concerned. The appointee knows
perfectly well that fnllliful pei-l'oniiiince
of duty will never win hlm promotion,
nor even Insure perninneuey of tenure of
position. He Is practically driven lo
the attempt lo Ingratiate himself wltb
thoBo In authority, lie is convinced,
and quite correctly, that he cannot in
his own Interest, afford to give his attention lo serving lhe public. Me musl
"cultivate" the dispensers of patronage.
On the members of parliament, and
especially of the cabinet, the effect In
even worse. Hy every appointment, or
recommendation for appointment, while
thp member pleases one applicant, lis*
muat disappoint a Bcore of unsuccessful. To the minister oi member who
retains BOlf-rcspecl, not lo say uny concern for the efficiency of tho public service, the position Is one of ceaseless tor-
ment. The leavoB from the diary of
Alexander McKenzie will not soon be
forgotten. Afler the Bad and bitter
humor In which be compares himself to
a watch dog guarding the public treasury���from his own friends, colleagues
and supporters, he enumerates some of
his trials, among which was "Friends
asking for positions for which they
know tbey are not qualified." The condition bas not changed at all since
thirty years ago.
But worst of all Is tho effect on the
public conscience. It is no exaggeration
to say Uiat on the announcement of any
appointment the flrat reflection of every
one is not "What qualification has he?"
���thai, Ineeded, ls the last. The flrst la
"What Influence, what 'pull' has he?"
Tbe biioIIb system ls bad enough. It
is degrading to dispensers and recipients of patronage and 10 the public, but
lt ls not essentially destructive of efficiency. The party leader who appoints
only his own supporters may still have
some regard for their fitness for the
duties of the positions to which they
are appointed. Uut when to the spoils
system is added the "personal pull" and
several other elements, the condition
becomes bad indeed.
Ab the Toronto Olobe used to say In
its reforming days, "It's time for a
For the second time In a few months
readers of Canadian papers are to be
Inflicted with long accounts daily of the
proceedings of an American courl room.
Mm there Is a great (inference In the
relative Importance of the two events.
The trial of Harry Thaw could Inlur-
esi only the prurient and the morbid.
The   dramatis   persoiine of  lhe whole
squalid tragedy were degenerates, Had
the Madison Square roof garden collapsed and hurled thorn ull, the world
would hnve been richer for tlie loss.
Hut the Issues involved In the trial of
William IJ. Haywood are far different.
The man, William Haywood, la of no
Importance or Interest to the public of
tlle United States or of Canada. But
In bis person American Labor UnlonlBm
Is being tried, and, less directly, and In
a far larger sense, American Democracy
Ib on trial.
The prosecution charges, and undertakes to prove, that the control of the
WeBlorn Federation of Miners, the largest and moBt Important labor organization In the West, has been captured,
held for years, and abused, by an "Inner ring" of anarchists and murderers,
wbo have committed, or authorized the
commission of, scores of murders and
other outrages, with the avowed object
of making constitutional government in
the United States Impossible.
The defence charges, and will try to
prove, that an organization of capital
has by corrupt means secured control
In each of lhe mining states of the
West, that It has systematically oppressed union labor, that it haa Instigated murders and destruction of property and bought evidence to convict the
miner's unions of the crimes, all for
the purpose of vilifying and destroying
the miner's organization.
Without discussing the relative
strength of the two positions and par-
Ilea, and suspending judgment as to all
evidence that has already been wrongly
made public, lt may still be calmly staled that lhe complete triumph of either
side will be fatal.
If a ring of murderers Bnd anarchists
can rule an organization numbering
nearly 100,000 men, or lf a ring of corrupt moneyed men can seize and keep
control of the government of every
state, American Democracy Is a ghastly
All honest lovers of freedom and of
constitutional government ln all countries can have but one hope in connection with the trial, that at any cost,
no matter to whom, the truth may be
kuown and justice done.
Our contemporary has raised Its
voice in a good cause, a little late of
course. We don't like the expression
"Greater Nelson." It ls unpleasantly
reminiscent of the Mulock monstrosity
stamps with the "Vaster Empire Than
Has Been" imbecility. But east, south
and southwest of Nelson are populous
suburbs whose interests are identical
with those of the city, and which on
all grounds, Bhould, logically, be Included, lt is very unlikely thut opposition
to the proposal would be encountered in
any quarter.
The editor of tlie Frederlcton Gleaner
has acknowledged publication of an ar-
tide attacking Mr. Emmerson; the latter denies the truth of the article, and
of course the editor la committed for
tria). The Eastern papers are publish-
ing the "horrible details" of the preliminary hearing. It ls sufficient this
far west to say that the night porter
at St. Lawrenoe Hall disagreed entirely
with Mr. Emmerson's veraion of what
happened and of why he and the ladles
sought a more accommodating hostelry.
Probably the real explanation of the
reluctance of Nelson landowners to
build Is the extremely high prices of material and labor, it ia known that a
achool which could have been built two
years ago for f 40,000 will now cost |G0,-
000. That la not encouraging and will
not be until the demand for houses is
great enough to justify the raising of
The Montreal Herald, the organ of the
Ottawa Machine, has undertaken a
heavy task. It Is trying to persuade
the people of Canada that the only useful work done at the Imperial Conference was done by Sir Wilfrid Laurier,
whose every effort was devoted to preventing the conference from doing anything.

The Daily Canadian
Negro Thief and Highwayman Escapes
-���Chinese Lumbermen Assaulted by White Rufflam.
(Special to The Dally Canadian.)
Orand Forks, June 5.���That George
Thompson, the negro who broke gaol
here last evening while awaiting sentence on two churges of theft, was a desperate character, Is evidenced by a report that has Just reached here from
Marcus, Wash. It seems that Thompson
reached that town on a freight train
last Saturday evening, anil shortly after
IiIh arrival attempted to hold up a citizen. * When the alarm was given the
town officer and some Tour citizens
started In hot pursuit of the negro, who
drew a gun on his pursuer! and actually
stood the five men off and again succeeded lu making hl�� escape. This lime ho
is supposed to have gone towards Spokane.
A reporl has reached here loday that
a number of white men, presumably
from Phoenix or thereabout, have made
an attack on a number of Chinamen
who were engaged In cutting timber on
Fourth of July Creek, and horsewhipped
the Chiuese workmen and drove them
off the ground, threatening to shoot
them if they ever returned. It appear*-}
that a few months ago a syndicate of
Chinamen from Rossland purchased a
timber limit of 640 acres on Fourth of
July creek and put a number of Chinamen to work to cut the timber off, which
action has now been followed by this
last outrage of the white men. As an
explanation for this outrage is Is stated
that as the Chinamen are not allowed
in Phoenix under any consideration,
they don't propose to allow them lo
work even on their own property, which
Is several miles from Phoenix.
Owing to the Increased practice of
Dr. C. M. Kingston he has found lt necessary to take in a partner and In consequence of this fact Dr. Newcombe, of
Midway, will arrive here In a few days
for that purpose. Dr. Newcombe Is a
graduate of VcGlll and has practiced
several years since leaving college.

Activity   In   Mining   Camps   Promises
Impetus te Growth of Northern Town.
Cobalt, June 6.���The reporting of so
many ulrlkes among the mlnea in Coleman Township ls having its effect upon
the town of Cobalt. The citizens are
quite excited, and those who have established businesses In the town are
looking forward to another big boom
this summer. The boosts that are lately
being given to some of the stocks by the
recent valuable strikes is evidence that
there will shurtly be a regular loosening
up of the money market, and on expectation that there will be another big boom
litis summer like last many people are
building hoses for purposes of renting
to the large number of people that will
likely make their home in Cobalt for the
next few months. Now that finer
weather lias* at last arrived, much development work is being done in the
mines, and lt haB been reported that the
Nlplssing people will employ 600 men
this summer. Likewise many other
mines are trying to secure more men.
Unless these extra laborers can be accommodated at the mining camps It
will be necessary for them to secure
homes or accommodation in the town,
and for this reason many of the owners
of large boarding houses are either enlarging them or making interior altera-
tlons. For the next few weeks, lf the
weather keeps fine, as it has today,
there will be much activity In Cobalt.
Facility of travel about Larder Lake
for the convenience of prospectors and
mining companies is being instituted by
the Ontario Steamboat company. This
ls done by the company placing on the
lake a small steamer, which is fifty-two
feet ln length, and will carry in the
neighborhood of 50 passengers. The
boat waB one the company UBed on the
Lake Temiskaming, but is now launched
in Kltzpatrlck'B Bay, ready for opera-
lion as soon as all the Ice Ib out of the
lake, the latest reports being to the effect that the water was still covered
with a thin sheet of ice. The contract
of taking Ihe boat Into Larder Lake was
a big one, and the company evidently
expect to do a great business or they
would never have undertaken tbe work.
Some months ago the boat was taken by
train from Halleybury to Tomstown. At
Tomstown It had to be cut ln two, and
each half conveyed on wheels to Larder
Lake, lt waB then put together again,
and Is now in Bhape for cruising tbe
lake. Before settling on a regular
course, however, the company will have
to lake soundings along tbe shore at
different points, where they purpose
making slopping places, as the lake is
an exceedingly dangerous one. It Is
said that the rocks project out into the
water from different places along the
shore a distance of 60 f-aet or more,
lt Ib necessary, therefore, that note be
laken of these dangerouB spots before
the steamer ts placed on her regular
cruise. Even in the centre of the lake
mountains of rock reach within a few
feet of the surface of the water. The
boat's course will likely be a regular
one, the slartlng point of which will
probably be at Fltzpatrlck's Trail. Ports
will likely be established at Wilson's
Bay, Taylor's Bay, and Dr. Reddick's
mine. The placing of this boat on
Larder Lake, according to the opinions
of those who have been there and are
Interested In properties in the vicinity,
will prove a great convenience to miners thiB summer.
He Is the Man Who Can't Get a Suit
to Fit Him Right.
The slender man is a type by himself,
and is quit as perplexing to thc average
tailor aB ls his opposite extreme, the
corpulent man.
The typical slender form has a sloping shoulder, but there are exceptions.
Few tailors can make a coat which will
fit correctly withoul fitting too tightly
und thus emphasizing tho BlenderncsB.
Tho "Soml-ready physique type system has conquered evory difficulty, and
Iho Hlender man In Type C can find his
exact proportions JiiBt as can Ihe corpulent man In Type F. The Seml-reatly
tailoring has solved the troubles of the
titan who has always hud difficulty with
his tailor.
