large orders were made for huovs of a

at Ottawa was always satisfied with the
goods, the officers on the spot and the
sea captains were continually pointing
out their defects and trying In vain lo
learn how to handle them. The captain
of tlu l.ady Laurler besought the department not to send out auy more of

unsuitable, but the commissioners allege that tlie department "pretended"

Vernon'*    Version     of     Convention     at
Which  Liberals  Nominated
Duncan   Ross.
The report of the Liberal convention
for Yale Cariboo sent to the Vancouver
press differs slightly from the more
than full page account published in lhe
Nelsou Liberal organ. It Is In part as
"It would seem that machine methods, calculated lo a nicety some weeks
ago, secured the renoiulnatlon of Mr.
Duncan Ross. M. P., as the Liberal candidate lor Yale-Cariboo at the party
convention held here yesterday. The
proceedings strongly savored of burleB-
que and opera bouffe. Less than 50
delegates, representing a constituency
comprising 8,000 voters and embraclug
eight provincial ridings, were In atten
dance. Their choice cau in no sense
be regarded as an expression of lhe
wishes of the electorate, as several
tidiugs were unrepresented. Of delegates or even proxies from Lillooet und
Cariboo,  there  was  none.
"Mr. K. G. Sidley. of Sldley in the
Similkameen district, created a sensation In the convention by declaring
lhat Mr. Ross was an impossible candidate, that he had been unfaithful to his
trust, and boldly asserted that the convention was not a representative one.
lie was promptly silenced by the chairman and conducted outside by Dr. K. C.
ktacOonald, of. Vernon, to receive an
explanation of certain political inanlpu
latlons.    ln his absence the Domination
of Mr. Ross was made unanimous.
"Returning to the room Mr. Sidley
met with so hostile a reception that
he soon left In disgust. Later h>- freely
dismissed the incident with the newspaper representative, and very strongly
condemned Mr. Ross for neglecting the
Interest! of Yale Cariboo at Ottawa. He
predicted Ihe defeat of Mr. Ross jind
the election of the Conservative candidate by a  large majority.
"At yesterday's Liberal gathering,
Mr. Robb wns nominaled by Mr. J. D
Swanson, of Kamloops. seconded by
Mr. Thomas Lnwson. of Kelowna. The
proceedings occupied less than two
"Mr. Hoss made a bitter attack on
Attorney-General Bowser In connection
with legal services to Gotch. a Japanese
labor contractor. He was. however,
obliged to modify his charges made ln
Ihe house of commons. He read a cablegram from Tamura at Yokohama, to
the effect thnt while Mr. Bowser did
not draft the original contract, he had
utilised it as a model In framing sub
sequent agreements.
���The other speakers last night mostly
comprised defeated Liberal candidates,
1 notably Mr. F. J. Deane. of Nelson:
I Mr. .1. V. Swanson, of Kamloops: Dr.
i K C MacDonald, or Vernon, and Mr.
I Snillh Curtis, of Rossland. They made
1 no new contributions to political

Ilardlsty, Alb., April .8���A drowning
accident occui rod ft jterday at the
Grand Trunk Pacific crossing of the
Battle river In which four men lost
their lives. The victims were Woodford Readman, Northampton, England,
T. Klrby, homesteader, Alberta; A.
Leuimans, St. Boniface, Manitoba and
E. Levis, Cambray. France.
Tbe temporary bridge has beeu swept
away by the outgoing Ice and a scow-
was afterwards built to ferry the workmen acroBB the river. On returning
from the day's work two scow loads
got easily across, just ai the third boat
or six men were leaving the bank three
more men jumped on. This seemed to
he too much for the scow ln the swift
current and when about mid-siream it
swamped and threw the occupants into
the water. Three swam to shore and
two remained with the scow and Ihey
rescued the third. The three remaining men were caught lu the swifi current and were drowned. Woodford
Readman, one of the contractors, jumped into the water to save one of the
drowning men The latter caught Headman around the neck aud both men
were drowned. A few others also jumped into the ice cold water and made gallant .-Horn, to re.io.ae the unfortunate
men but could do nothing against the
rushing river.
Mr. Readman was u very promising
young mau. HiB death through trying
lo Bave hiB fellow workmen was doubly
said through the fact that he was to be
married shortly. None of the bodies
have   been recovered.

Boston. MaflB.. April 18.--All arrangements have been completed for holding
the .twelfth annual Marathon run under the auspices of the Boston Athletic
Association next Monday. The annual
Patriot's Day fixtures here is the great
eBt event of Its kind In the world. It
has always been international in Its
scope, and has numbered among Its entries in years past the best men from
the United States, Canada and numerous foreign countries. Interest In the
event this year has been heightened
by the decision of the American committee of the Olympic games to hold
the trials for the American entries for
the Marathon run In England iu counec-
tion with the annual Marathon of the
Boston  Athletic   Association
The B. A. A. Marathon Is recognized
here and abroad as the premier annual
long distance footrace, and Its Winer
each is hailed as practically the world's
Champion. It has developed many won
derful runnel's lu the past, and only last
year brought International fame to Tom
Longboat, the Canadian Indian, who established a new record and since haB
achieved additional fame and Borne notoriety over the disputes us to his amateur standing.
The B. A. A.  Marathon course  from
Ashland to Boston    gives a    thorough
trial, uphill and down, with sufficient
level stretcbei to afford breathing Bpa-
ces. It is difficult enough for the hardiest runners and the winner will rich
ly deserve to be one of the American
team in England. The B. A. A. management, through years of experience,
admirably conducts the run and the
greatest care Is taken of tbe contestants, before, d*. lng and after the race.
By running the Olympic trials In connection with Ashland-to-Boston race
next Monday the Olympic committee
will save the trouble and expense of
organizing a separate race later ln the
season, and new aspirants will be given an opportunity to match their ability against old-time performers who
have competed over this famous course
for a number of years A separate trial
race would have been a hardship on the
runners. The jeadlng men have been
in training many months for the B. A.
A. race and now are at the top or their
form A separate run would necessitate
rigid training for a much longer period,
after which tho successful men would
be obliged to continue in strict training to July when they start for England. Two long races would take too
much out of tlie runners, while If a
shorter run were held as a trial there
would be a gieat protest from pros
pectlve competitors, who rightfully con
tend that many men who can run from
ten to twenty miles would be forced
out of the running at twenty-five

was celebrated secretly in a little town,

The attacking force, nearly tour times
as strong, which is considered not too
great a preponderance, was then divided into three sections commanded
respectively by Lieutenants C. T. Partington and G. Anderson, aud Sergt. R.
J. Steel. They had no definite idea of
the location of the enemy, and it took
half an hour's persistent and .ntelligent
scouting to locate them. Each side had
a staff of signallers, who proved very
When the scouting party of the attacking force located the enemy, the
three divisions began an enveloping
movement, which waa declared successful by Capt. Stewart who acted aa umpire.
The credit of the victory belongs
largely to Sergt- Steel who found a

barred the enemy's retreat just as
Lieutenants Partington and Anderson
were pressing them back from front

The rangers enjoyed their day's work
which was carefully planned to simulate the conditions of modern warfare
in widely extended formation.
The return march was made in good
time, the armory being reached at 6.45.
The signallers of both forces bad

night confessed to the police that out
of revenge he set fire to the house of
Kate Besslnger, 187 Adelaide street
west. Latto had been boarding at 189

turned out by his landlady. Believing
that the Besslnger woman had said
something detrimental to his character, Latto last night poured gasoline
on the verandah of her house and set
fire to It. The flames were extinguished by some of the boarders before any
damage was done.

Two Years From San Francisco Fire-
Preparing to Greet Navy.
San Francisco, April 18.���Two years
ago today occurred tbe earthquake followed by the great conflagration that
laid a large section of San Francisco ln
waste, cost 452 lives and resulted ln
property damage amounting to over
(400.000,000. In 24 hours the destruction was so great that scarcely a
building in the business portion of the
city waa left standing with walls intact.
Two years has wrought Aladdin-like
changes In the appearance of San Francisco. Rising from the ashes before
the smoke of the disaster had cleared
away, she finds herself today largely
rebuilt ln an Improved style, her business prosperity recovered, and her
people preparing a Joyous welcome for
the greatest naval fleet that has ever
visited her harbor.
AmbaBBsdor Whltelaw Reld. after his
recent visit here, eloquently described
the city's achievement when he said:
"There are many things ln the history
of this country of which an American
ls Intensely pround, but I protest that
among them all there has been nothing
ln 40 odd years, since the greatest civil
war of modern times, of which we have
more right to be proud than of San
Francisco iu the earthquake ami ot
San Francisco today."

Saturday,  April   IS,   1908.
A couple ol weeks agu Canada was
startled I/., the publication ot a report,
by u royal commission wliich declared
uiat tlie administration oi tlie public
departments generally was bad, ami
tbat in two departments especially,
Militia and Detence, ami .Murine ami
i i. ..i ties, there was evidence ol Incom*
petence, carleaBnesa and extravagance,
Lhai there Beamed io be no directing
Head, no zeal lor lhe public weliare
and uo conscience. There were some
dioquieung le.times oi Uie case even
belore lhe report appeared. Ilie original draft was modified under orders
from Mr. Fielding, '1'hal is lo say that
after a royal commission had prepared
itB report It was told that there must
be a limit to ils censure. The other
Incident was even worse. Belore any
members except the ministers had Been
the report Mr. Hrodeur, minister of
marine and fisheries rose In the houae
and violently attacked the commissioners who of course could not reply.
The government organs throughout the
couutry could do little with the report
Itself. The took, with a unanimity that
at least suygests a hint from a central
authority, the extraordinary attitude of
praising the bravery of Sir Wilfrid
Laurier in risking an investigation of
the administration. Liberals have
grown so used lo disregarding public
rights that they have actually forgotten
that   the  public have  at  all   times  the
right to investigate any department of
the   public   service.
Then Sir Wilfrid made a Btatemi nt
to the house ln his usual courtly aud
dignified manner. He would grant
what Mr Borden demanded. there
would be a thorough searching of departments, the guilty would suffer uo
matter how high they stood. Ami
again the .Machine press rang with applause at this -'eminently proper
course,'' which was declared in advance
to be a proof that there was no dishonesty.
Sir Wilfrid's iirumi.se wab not a piece
of extravagant virtue or courage. It
waa his plain duty in the circumstances.
In a British parliament it would have
been received as a matter ol coins*-,
with no sound of applause from friend
or foe, probably with censure lor having
allowed ii to become necessary. Bui i"
Canadian Liberals Sir Wilfrid Laurier
is a demigod. Ills commonplaces delivered with theatrical nourish are received  as  the  utterances  ot  an  oradi .
Forced as the promise was, and loudly as it was heralded, it has already-
been broken. Whether the breach of
faith���for it amounts to nothing less���Is
deliberate on the part of the premier or
forced upon him hy some of his more
astute colleagues, Is immaterial. He Ib
guilty of a breach of faith.
He promised grandiosely that there-
would be a full Investigation, especially
of the marine arm fisheries department,
by a commissioner clothed wilh ample
powers; he pretends to fulfill that promise by having Mr Justice Casseis appointed, not by the government, but
by the accused minister, Mr. Brodeur,
to report not to parliament, nor even
to tlie cabinet, but tu Mr. Brodeur, and
finally not to investigate the offences
committed in that department but only
to see lf the report of Mr. Courtney
and  his colleagues was Justified.
It Is some consolation to observe thai
not even the lowest of the Machine
members and editors have yet ventured
openly to appluud  this flagrant dishon
esty. They have left that phase of the
subject alone, and rather follow the insolent and foolish course of Mr. Aylesworth who puts all the blame on Conservative civil- servants and who pleads
thut a government in office for 12 years
is still not responsible for the administration of its departments.
Our local contemporary does better
than that. By quotation from an eastern exchange it suggests that w-holesale
stealing in the public service is a piece
of "petty politics." and invites us to
discuss more important matters. And
the Important thing we are inferentially
Invited to discuss is our contemporary's
opinion of Mr. Kipling's opinion of Vancouver's opinion of Japanese immigration.    Really,  we  haven't time.

Chief   Festival   of   the   Christian   Year
to Be Observed Tomorrow��� 8er-
vicea   in   Nelaon  Churches.
Tomorrow will he Easter Sunday, the
chief festival of the church year, wbich
commemorates the triumph over death
of the Incarnate God.
Whatever beliefs and systems of philosophy may rise and fall the religious
beliefs of humanity must forever centre
on the personality of Jesus Christ, His
life and teaching. There were many
religions before the birth of Christ,
there have been many others since, and
there are many today, but no other
word since man first found a voice is
comparable with that message conveyed ln the life and death of Christ. Mb
science Ig disputed. His philosophy Ib
criticized, but no enemy can cavil at the
purity and nobility of His Gospel of
love and peace.
Many have denied, still deny, the incarnation and atonement as parts of a
Divine plan, and eTen the resurrection
a3 an historical fact. Judged even by
the standard of visible results the belief in the Divinity of Christ and His
resurrection have more powerfully affected the history of the human race
than the sum of al] other events since
It is conceded now by philosophers
of all schools that not only the progress
but the survival of the race depends
on the force ol" the mora] law, Uiat the
moral law derives Its only sanction
from belief ln God, and lhat belief In
God is founded chiefly, if not only, on
lhe  teaching of Christ.

Best  Route  to   Finlay   River.
The best and mot.t direct route to
the scene of the new placer find on
the Findlay river is by way of Ashcroft, according to F. T. Cromwt-ll, who
knows the northern part of British Columbia as well as anyone. Only last
year he headed a party wbich came
overland from Edmonton to the coast
via the Yeliowhead pass. The route
via llazleton is longer and more difficult, with fewer chances of replenishing supplies en route, Mr. Cromwell
says, and he advises intending stam-
pt*;ders to go In by way ot Ashcroft to
Quesnelle and then across the Griacom
portage by Fort George. Mr. Cromwell
IS one of a number of American capitalists who are heavily interested in timber and lands, both in northern llritish
Columbia and Alberta, controlling a
great deal of property along the Grand-
Trunk Pacific. lie is a great believer
in the future of llritish Columbia, and
ihinks that the resources of the country are beginning to be appreciated by
the  outside   world.
