Grand Forks, June 20.���Tho West
Kootenay Power and Light Company
are experiencing great difflonlty In securing stonemasons Lu work on their
substations at Qrand Forks and Greenwood, and, although (hey are paying %\\
a day, they are (breed to work short-
banded. This company is constructing
a model pole lino from Itossland to
Boundary Falls, a distance or Go miles.
Their [lower Is carried hy three wire
cables about half an inch in thickness,
tho combined capacity of the three cables being 90,000 VOltS, or three times
tbo capacity of tho Cascade Power and
Light Company's plant. Under the
present charter the West Kootenay
company can only go as far west as
Boundary Falls, but expect to secure a
further extension of their charter at
the next session of the provincial leg*
IslatUre to enable them to operate anywhere in the county of Yale, when this
line will be extended further west. This
company contemplates supplying power to dozens of mines, in addition to
tue various I owns, for domestic use.
The line of 00 miles will cost over a
half  million dollars.
There is a ripple of agitation in this
district. Just now over tho necessity of
mjne-owners Umbering the underground
workings of their properties. There
have been ninny deaths In the last few
months in this, district from rock falling on workmen, causing agonizing
scenes. The recent death of Charles
Petersen, at the Strathmoro mine. Is
the latest fatality from this cause. It
is understood that steps will be taken
to bring this matter before the attention of the provincial minister of mines
at an early date,
Btvan Ovens, an old resilient of Qrand
Forks, but now of Spokane, has been

he resided in Grand Forks some seven

Winnipeg, June 20.���Cherries, straw-
berries and gooseberries from the Pacific coast province are arriving in limited quantities, and by Ihe middle of
next week will be fairly plentiful. The
first shipments came from Mission
City; the second point to ship was
Port Haney, thou Chiliiwack and Ke-
lowna. Cherries were of a lurge, red
variety, the llavor was fine, bul there
is still more care required, in packing.
Some of the .shipments came In ordinary ten-pound crates, and these wore in
very fair condition when they arrived,
Others wore In small strawberry boxes,
and were considerably bruised, uml
looked unsightly. In ten-pound cases is
lhe proper method of shipping cherries,
ami one that will meet with most approval in this market.
The strawberries are very fine, being largo, even In size, and of a rich,
waxy red. The packing of this fruit is
decidedly better than last year, but Is
not all that it ought, to be yet, as small
boxes are nol faced, as are "Hood Rivers," nnd therefore there Is more bruising.
Winnipeg will take every strawberry
British Columbia can send, as the demand is very strong for them. They
are preferred over every slrawbeny
except Hood Rivers. British Columbia
fruit growers should eo-opentie and secure a regular fruit car service. In
this wny shipments would o
ward more regularly and in a n
form condition.

worthy competitors, and will give the
local men a good, bard game.
The home team will line up as in the
match on Empire Day, but strengthened by more than a month of regular,
systematic practice and vigorous training. The members have been put on
their mettle by the beating Ihey received on that occasion from the Pinch-

to turning the tables on the "bunch

are not likely to underestimate any

New York, June 20.���The statement
that the Armour child is again back at
Dr. Lorenz's private hospital in Vienna
may mean much or little as to the success of "bloodless surgery" In her
case. The congenital malformation
from which she suffered seems to have
been of an aggravated type, difficult to
cure with any variety of treatment,
bloodless or otherwise.
She may have returned simply for
an examination as to results, or for
further treatment in continuation of
the original replacement. It certainly
seems improbable that, if Dr. Lorenz's
treatment was considered a failure by
the family, they would continue to pat*
ronize him. The widespread publicity
which attended the Vienna surgeon's
visit to the United States gave currency to some rather absurd opinions regarding the efficacy of his so-ealled
bloodless surgery.
This method of treatment has not a
few disadvantages and dangers arising
from the rupturing and bruising of the
tissues which inevitably accompany
tbe replacement of the dislocated
bones. It is further stated by the old-
fashioned surgeons that cutting operations are at least as successful' as the
Ijorenz method, and really less dangerous. Statistics regarding the results of
Dr. Lorenz's operations in the United
States seem to hear out these statements, his cures ranging from but 15
to 20 per cent.
The Justifiable conclusion, therefore,
seems to be that bloodless surgery is
useful in families where there Is a
prejudice against tho knife, possibly
also that in carefully selected cases it
Is preferable to the cutting operation;
but in the main its percentage of cures
of congenital dislocations or malformations is not materially higher than that
obtained by the older form of surgical

Toronto, June 20.���There is considerable anxiety manifested here over the
spreading rejiort that the drand Trunk
1'acillc railway will not observe the
condition of Its charter, and that the
long line in the northern part of the
province to the Atlantic seaboard Is not
a business proposition. A shorter haul
will be secured through the United
States nnd the Georgian Bay waterways, and the immense outlay of $100,-
000,000 to be spent by Ihe Canadian government In constructing that part of
the line which is to be owned by tbe
country will be another waste like the
Intercolonial scheme. Commenting on
the situation, the Mall and Empire
"Announcement Ib made that the
Grand Trunk Pacific will connect at
Winnipeg with the Wisconsin Central,
of which road the Grand Trunk Ib acquiring control. With ihis arrangement
completed, the Grand Trunk Pacific
will have two exits from tbe west. One
will be the line from Winnipeg via
Fort William and the lakes, and the
other the route via the Wisconsin Central. St. Paul and Chicago. It ts not
surprising that the Grand Trunk should
seek to bridge the distance between its
present Chicago terminus and tbe Winnipeg end of its far western line. Business considerations make this movement reasonable.
"But what a commentary the opera,
tion Is upon the Ottawa politicians!
The Grand Trunk went to the capital
and asked for a charter to build Into
the west from North Bay, its present
northern terminus. A small subsidy
would have secured an all-Canadian line
from that point to the Pacific coast. In
addition, the company would have
agreed to turn over the business for the
Atlantic ports to our own line, the Intercolonial, at Montreal. Sir Wilfrid
Laurler took this proposal into consideration, and the result was that the entire project was negatived. A new
transcontinental railway connecting
the marts of Ontario and Quebec with
the western business centres, securing
traffic for our own line, and costing
very little money, Sir Wilfrid did not
want, and would not have. A substitute proposition was made by this celebrated 'railway expert.' We are now
at work upon It.
"We are building a $100,000,000 railway from Winnipeg to Moncton In New
Brunswick, and we are expecting the
Grand Trunk railway to use it as a
means of communication with the prairies. It is assumed by the political
'railway expert' that the company will
haul wheat 1,900 miles to the middle of
New Brunswick, and then make arrangements for the further haul to the
seaboard. While tbe country Is being
sweated for this folly, the Grand Trunk
Is looking after its own Interests in1 a
business-like way. First, it sidetracks
the Laurler line by getting a branch
to Fort William. Tho company ts not
going to haul its freight 1,900 miles
through the northern wilderness It It
can get to the lake and have its business transported by water to one of the
(leorgliin Hay ports. Secondly, tho
company is figuring in Its branch lino
profKisitlons upon n cut-off from the far
northern government line to North Bay,
Ihus securing for it the very line It
originally proiwaed. Finally, tho company Is making arrangements for a
connection between Chicago and Winnipeg via the Wisconsin Central.
"Apparently, the Grand Trunk will
do anything but commit Itself to tho
Laurler folly. Nor is this to bo wondered at. Whnt does the Grand Trunk
want with the Laurler line? It Is not
going to allow itself to be separated
from the business centres to please a
preposterous politician, who does not
know anything about business, and it
eertninly is not. going to choose, of all
the possible routes between the west
nnd tho sea, that wblch Is the most expensive to operate. The, Grand Trunk
Is out for business, and when we have
spenl our $100,000,000 on the fur ninth
ern road, to which the massive intellect
of Sir Wilfrid Lnurier has committed
us, the company will please Itself about
running trains over IL"

"By duo word we are somotlm ��� Judged to I
trite aad by one wort] so mo limes judged to I
foolish. U't us therefore be careful what w
���ay. "���Confucius,
In a personal letter to the editor of
this paper, on eaateni friend who Ima
been n lifelong member of Lhe Liberal
party, and whose advice, when he tins
cared tu give ii. was always received
without discount, writes, among other
pungent things: "Many times a weet<
do I regrol thai I will nol have n chance
to publicly gel after some ol the things
tbat are ''ally coming up ai Ottawa. H
looks as it' honor had died in the rulers.
They have become mad with power."
Tin1 phrase, '"mad  with  pou er," and
coming from the Bource ii did, struck
us with its suggestiveness, and furnished us with a possible explanation of, il
nol excuse for, some of the remarkubh
freaks  which   have    distinguished   thi
late history uf the Liberal party.   II is
true that tho prosperity ot Canada during late years has been almost unexampled���wo mean in comparison with thi
earlier or middle history of the dove,
opment of the Dominion.    In com pari
non  with  the    develox>meui  of    other
countries, particularly  upon ihis continent, we do not know that It Is .1 parallel that can be Insisted upon,   The Liberals have  for  years   been  didoasedb
habituated to the practice ol  claiming
that this prosperity is due to tho Liberal policy and to Liberal administration.
The  "wise Immigration   policy   oi  ih.
Ottawa  government,"   for Instance,   Is
an example oi the campaign literature
of  the  Liberal  party.
The "wise Immigration policy of the
Liberal party"  lias  turned out, under
Itlie recent Investigation of Immigration
revelations  .11   Ottawa,  tu   be  nothing
more  than an    Immigration    sen.da 1,
Thai  the Dominion government  suuuUi
have boon responsible for   uch an immigration    policy    as  ihe   one  which
obliged     them,     by     tho    advantugi
ot     a    partisan     majority     in    the
house, to suppress all  Information ri -
garding iis Inuer workings, Is, to buj
iif' least, nol one for Lhe Liberals lo
go "mad'' over,    Tbe natural opportu
nlttes and advnntagOH nl  wi stot 11 I an
ada as a desirable Bold toi peoplo with
moderate means to goi a foothold upon
safe and secure    ground    was    in	
known to Hie world, noi  by  Hie Liberals,  bul  i��>   the  railwnj   companies
and  by  the  land  companies,  who secured large appropriations of territory
in  the Northwest.    We recall   Ih     lamentations of the    Liberal   parly between  1880 and   1886, when  tho ('ana
(Ilan  Pacific railway  wan  seeking   its
charter, nnd  when the  Liberal opposition In the house accused tho government    wiih   extreme   charges of scandal In connection with lhal charter appropriation.    It wns charged  that   the
government of Sir John McDonald proposed t" give away thousands of acres
of worthless landa in order to assist
n railway which would never be anything else than n  tax  upon  the rate
payers of Canada.   It was charged Hi if
the   railway  would   run  through  thou
sands of  miles  of unproductive  territory, and ihnt whal few productive sections thero uei-e would have lo pay the
cost of a transcontinental line which
could never bo of any use to Canada.
There was nothing at thai  time with
which    the   Conservative  governmenl
could not be charged.   While we read
My admit thai public sentiment has undergone a change since that time with
reference  to the  advisability of    land
grants for railway purposes, especially
In large tracts, the fact stilt    remains
that,   whatever  1I10    Canadian    Paclfli
railroad cost Canada In Its earlier history,  it   has abundantly made good in
its later assistance in the development
of the country.   It was the commercial
instinct,   the   business ability   .ami   the
wise land policy of the c. ['. it. company which made the Canadian Northwest,   aud   not   the later   Immigration
policy of the Liberal government.
Turning to tbe  province of Ontario,
it   wns   the "mud   wiih   power"  policy
of   the   Liberals   that   brought   disaster
Lo thai  party in  that historic pari of
this fair  Dominion.    In  the  maritime
provinces today tho Liberals are literally mad with their power���so much so
in facl  thai the party papers are asking, In  view of the approaching elec-
tlons, "if it is worth while to have any
opposition?"   We all know the tremendous majority the Liberals have obtained there, nnd bo frenzied are they with
their   success   ihat   the   diminution  ol
thai  power by the election of even a
small  Conservative   membership drives
them Into hysterics.
We remember once hearing the late
Hon, Oliver Mowat���the lasi of the
prominent Ontario Liberals of tho lion.
Qeorge Brown school���say In a public
address before thousands of people,
that "Party governmenl is the best
form of government for our present
stale of society, A Strong, healthy and
vigorous opposition is the safeguard ol
any government." It is true these
statements were made after he became
lieutenant-governor of Ontario, and, hy
that office, superannuated from Lhe
sphere of active politics; but no one
would accuse Sir Oliver of uttering
such sentiments unless be believed
them. After forty years of public life
such testimony fa invaluable, especially
when given by such a witness.
All things go to show the madness
of power as afflicting the Liberal party,
and It Is worth while in ihis connection
io remember thai "Whom the gods
would destroy they first make mad."
sloner Green admitted under oath thai
be talked the Kafen Island details over
With Mr. and .Mrs. Anderson at a time
when the transaction was an executive
secret, andj that the firm were in possession of Information which was withheld from the house and every member
thereof for fourteen months Inter.'
"The News raaj look from cover to
covei of the evidence in the Kali 11
island Investigation, and ii will not lind
anywhere thai Mr, Green admitted that
he had discussed executive secrets With
Air. and Mrs. Anderson, or any person
else iintside of the members of the cabinet. The Hire,' statements referred to
in the foregoing are deliberate and gratuitous misrepresentations of the truth,
and are wholly unworthy of a paper of
the decent outside appearance of the
Nelson Liberal paper.*'
In spite of this calling down from
the Colonist, the News Is Incorrigible,
and returns i��> Its policy of misstatement and falsehood with apparent sesl
and enthusiasm, and In its Sunday
morning Issue repeats iis malevolent
falsehoods.    It  says:
"The admissions  made  by  members
of the government in connection wllh
ihe   Kiliuiaa'   and   Kaletl   island     land
transactions  di monstrnted    thai    very
careless methods bad prevailed in this
department,   to  place  n <  harsher con-
slriictlon upon ihe acknowledged facts."
We could have forgiven Hie News if
if   hail   In Mi n   Into   unhappy   error     in
these  matters,  bul   thai   i'  should  repeal a falsehood after hiving its attention drawn 10 it is not in its credit, nnd
will mil tend to establish for ii a place
in the respect nf the community,   The
News   has   followed   persistently     this
policy  ot wilful misrepresentation and
occasional    deliberate    poll! leal   fals<
hood.    And yet  there are people  who
wonder why a second political paper is
ne.'tied in ihis tipper country!   The Colonist,   in   regretting that   a  paper with
so good an outside appearance as the
News should have so much the matti I'
wiih iis inside, simply reminds ns of a
classical   quotation   which   says   something about things which have a "whited
outside appearance, but  within arc fail
of���but we shall forbenr.

hold in the* reception room of the parliament buildlpgfl the other day. This
was done at the suggestion of the Hon.
Mr. Hanna. Warden Gilmour, in supposing the probation system, said a
number of people, including himself,
who had consistently advocated this
aud the Indeterminate sen'ence, had
waited on three consecutive ministers
of justice of Canada urging their adoption, without result. One minister had
written to him In reply to tho suggestion thai be did not propose lo Americanize Canadian methods, The definite
Sentence system was not a success.
Men who had served an allotted time
in tho Central prison had often said to
him in a most genial way when departing, "Well, good-bye, warden; I am going to got even." and that was tho spirit iho present methods seemed to produce. "The present ticket of leave
actf," declared Warden Gilmour emphatically, "gives a pull to a man who
ran hire an excellent lawyer, or who
has Influential friends at court. Men
have come into tho Central prison
cracking their fingers at me as they
came, and saying they did not care for
me, They had a pull, and would soon
he out. It was true, too, and they went
out crncklng their fingers at me again.
This was an injustice keenly felt and
bitterly resented by other prisoners
who had no influential friends nr money, and it increased the difficulties of
any real  reformation work."
