James   Johnstone    Replies    Vo   Anonymous  Attack  en Canada,  Lead

James Johnstone, whose persistent
championing of Koolenay interests
bus been one of the chief factors In
attracting men und money for lhe de-
velopmenl of the country's resources
In land and mineral wealth, now finds
himself engaged lu a campaign on
���lightly different lines, but with the
snme object in view.
A few weeks ago he read in the Aberdeen Free Press ii letter signed "Parent," whose author warned ull old
country people, especially Scois, to be-
wure of Canadian Immigration agents.
He fold u moving tale of the adventures or his own son, who wus beguiled
into coming tu<Canada, and after travelling for four days found himself
unliiMii resources and one of many
Mr. Johnstone immediately resolved
lo correct the false Impression left by
lhe latter. The place four days''Journey inland wns easily identities! as
Before writing Mr. Johnstone took
the precaution of telephoning nn In-
'liiiry as to labor conditions to Manager R. R. Hcdley. of Ihe Hall Mines
smelter. He wus told, aa be expected,
lhal there was a Heady demand for
able-bodied men who are willing to
work, and lhat the wage of unskilled
laluir was $2.50 a day from the start.
He was also told llinl 80 men could
be given work al once.
Armed with such inforninilon, Mr.
Johnstone Ihen replied over his own
signature lo "Parent's" letter. He
pointed out the absurdity of denouncing   the   country   because   work     was
not found Immediately al a depot
where thousands of men are arriving
weekly for transport to harvest fields,
mini's or sawmills.
He described the conditions In Hrli-
Ish Columbia nnd the new provinces,
showing iIit> varied possibilities for
labor and capital aud the absurdity of
saying   work  cuntiol  lie  found.
He repented thai fruit fanning re-
ipiiri's oftpital for lbe flrsl years, and
warned bis readers lhat one attempting to engage In it Willi loo little capital mlghl sink ll ull In vain.
Hut he nlso undertook to And work

abundant capital for acquiring and developing hunt, und others without nap*

No Excuse for Erroneous Complaint In
Local   Daily.
In reference to alleged dissatisfaction of settlers round Uulfour wllh the
work being done by the government
on an nccommodation road, and the
petition against It presented by
Messrs. Gray and McKay, a properly
owner of the neighborhood, whose interests are many times greater than
those of the two petitioners together,
called at The Canaiilun office this
He says that the petitioners represent only themselves: that utl other
ranchers nnd property owners lire perfectly satisfied Willi the work being
done for them by the government.
They are also satisfied that the most
and best possible work Is being done
with the $800 made available this year.
As to the "Btartllng charge" thut
the roud Is below high-water murk,
and a part of the money being spent
to remove driftwood, the only imitation of truth in it is that ln places
some drifuwood still remains from the
great Hood of 18'J-t. No other year's
high water has approached tbe road.
and this year's highest mark was not
within   six feet  of  it.
The Canadian's authority is nm
concerned to attack or defend any department of the provincial government, but as a large property owuer
iu the district, be is nnxious that a
.valuable work shall not be stopped on
account of wild and groundless statements from a few who think they
know belter than all others, emphasized mid exaggerated by parUzun
prejudice and veaom.

Stockholm, Sweden, July .11���It is
reported thut a mutiny broke oul at
midnight in n fortress nt Sveaborg,
Finland, Tho officers' families and the
wounded are saiii to have |>een sent to
London. July 81.���A despatch  to a

To Establish Confidence.

chairman of Mather & Piatt, and president of Stanford Iron Works, a high
authority of technical education, appeared before tho House of Lords'
commitlee on Insurance companies today and declared himself to ho firmly

Provincial Ministers Will
Foregather at Ottawa
Senate Reform and Provincial Boundary Extension Will be Subjects of Discussion.
Ottawa, July 31.���Hon. William
Pugsley, attorney-general of New
Brunswick, who has been ln the city
for fhe past couple of days, ls of the
opinion lhat the conference of provincial ministers with Sir Wilfrid Laurler
and some of his colleagues will take
place before the autumn session of
parliament. He takes this from the
statement by the prime minister himself in the house and by other circumstances. Moreover, Mr. Pugsley ls
satisfied that the Dominion ministers
are all anxious to effect a settlement
not only on the financial feature ln
question of provincial subsidies, but
on olher matters.
It will be remembered that among
the questions which Sir Wilfrid says
would be submitted to the conference,
was that of senate reform on the lines
uf provincln! representation. Another
matter of importance tu be settled by
the conference is lhat of the enlargement of the boundaries of Ontario,
Quebec, Manitoba and Saskatchewan,
to give them a somewhat equal frontage on Hudson bay. Speaking of the
report lhat he had made half a million
dollars on his western railway and
land Investment, the attorney-general
of New Brunswick admitted that he
had done pretty w.,11. though he had
not made so much as the newspapers
represented. He thought he deserved
to make something, as he had held the
lands a long time at a great Inconvenience, but he would have made more
if he had not in the last few years
sold a great deal of land, particularly
lots In western cities and towns. He
hail sold some, be said, for $26 which
were now worth $400 or $600. Out of
one bunch which he and his partners
disposed of, he withheld some In a certain western town, reducing his share,
by $200. A part of these he had since
sold for $2,500. Mr. Pugsley is now
sorry he let bis Saskatoon lots go, but
philosophically observes that he Is always willing to let the other fellow
make something.

Ling   Fishing   in   Christina   Lake   Becomes   Commercial   Industry���
Last Week's Fire.
(Special to Daily Canadian.)
Grand Forks, July 31.���As ling fishing Is being so extensively indulged in
tilts summer at Christina lake, your
correspondent has gathered some Interesting Information regarding this
fish. The ling Ib a slim fish, only
found in northern waters, having been
found as far north as Iceland. Its
back and sides are gray, Inclining to
olive, and its belly Is silvery. The
fish Is marked with a traverse black
bar, tipped with white. The ling fish
Ib very valuable as an article of commerce, being largely exported to Spain
and the Mediterranean porta. Before
being used, the fish are split from
head to tail, cleaned, soaked In brine,
washed and dried, and then are commonly known as stock fish. They
make excellent eating. The liver
yields an oil used by the fishermen in
their lamps, and this oil has also been
employed as a substitute for cod llvei
oil. The ling Is a deep water fish, and
ls caught in a most peculiar way. The
fisherman has a line. about 30 feet
long, with several brunch lines running off both sjdes of the main line.
This long line, with Its branches, is
thrown injo the deep water ln the
evening, and In the morning overy
hook will have caught a ling fish. Ordinary bait can be used for ling fishing, While the general public have
been doing more or less ling fishing
for years, very few people know anything about this peculiar fish, and the
above facts have been gathered from
reliable quarters.
J. W. Jones, who was entirely burned out by the big fire a week ago, returned yesterday from the Slniilka-
meen district. In speaking about the
fire this morning, Mr. Jones said:
"The total damage done to my property, both real and personal, will fully
aggregate $31,000; the loss of my main
store building will be $4,500. This
building had 15 handsomely furnished
lodging rooms that brought me ln $80
a month. Besides this main building,
there was the storehouse and stable,
worth $1,000 each. The furniture
stock, Including a new Hclntzmun piano, was Invoiced at $20,000. In'addl
lion to this, I bail wagons, buggies,
harness, hay and grnln and railway
grading implements, footing up at
least $2,000, which was also destroyed,
and last, but not least, my 53 thoroughbred white Plymouth Rock chickens
were also consumed. On all this property I have $11,700 insurance, making
my total loss not covered by insurance
about $1,800. I have not as yet decided whether I will rebuild or not
As all my books and accounts were
burnt,' It makes matters very complicated."

J. E. Annable Describes Sensation In
Winnipeg   Made  by  Display
of  Kootenay Fruit.
Thei British Columbia exhibit and
the special Kootenay exhibit of fruit
at the Winnipeg fair were brilliantly
successful, and are certain to be productive of good results.
J. E. Annable has returned to Nelson, and C. F. Mcllardy has gone to
Brandon with the exhibits for the
Western Manitoba fair.
A shipment of splendid pears, the
first of the season, from James Johnstone's orchard, was forwarded to
Brandon this morning.
The chief contributors so far to the
display "have been:

Mrs. Fauquier, of Fire Valley, Bent
a special exhibit of cut flowers.
Mr. Annable says that the greatest
hit was made by the Kootenay gooseberries. The Mnnltobans couldn't believe that berries so large could be fit
to eat until they were invited to taste
them. Then each visitor went away
and brought his friends.
Mr. Annable greatly regretted the
lack of a good large district map of
Kootenay. Much of his time was wasted in teaching geography. His general statement to visitors he summarized as follows:
"We have 100,000 acres of land on
which fruit like this can be grown.
We want men to come and go Info
the business. What we can raise now
Ib not enough to reach Winnipeg. It
can't get past Regina. There are 200,-
000 people on the prairies between
Kootenay and Winnipeg. They want
the fruit, and they have as much money as you have. We want men with
money and experience to come out
and raise fruit."

the chief owners. It is in the same
famous gold zone as the Swede, the
Lucky Jack and the Chisholm.
The samples were shown today to
many experienced mining men, including J. L. Retallack, of Kaslo, and N. J.
Cavanaugh, of Sandon. They and
many others agree that the specimens
are at least equal to any ever shown
in Kootenay. On every particle ot
rock fine free gold can be seen with
the naked eye, and at the bottom of
the valise the dust formed by the
crumbling of the samples ia full of
flakes of gold.
The And waa made by Hr. Chism
himself towards the end of last week,
and the Lardeau Mining Review contains mention of It, but its editor nl
so excited over what he saw that the
article ts little mate than *.repetition
of "fr\d\ Gold, Chunks of Gold!"    '
To the questions of a representative
of The Daily Canadian the owner of
the samples gave the following information:
"In the Heela there ia a very wide
formation vein of quarts extending
from end to end of the claim. Running right through the centre, of it is
the vein of this free gold ore, varying
from a foot to four feet In width.
"I have stripped it for a couple of
hundred feet on the surface, and the
colors are found everywhere. I have
���a shaft down 40 feet, and the ore at
the bottom is the same as on the Bur-
"I'm often aaked why we don't get
out a couple of tons and get enough
money to open It up. Well, that is the
dearest and poorest way to work a
mine. We ought to have mining machinery and conveniences for hauling
and a stamp mill for treating the ore.
To take it out with hand labor, and
then pay freight and treatment
charges on the ore ns It runs would
leave some profit, but not nearly what
it should earn.
"I don't know why It ls so hard to
interest capital ln the Poplar Creek
country. I guess It's because there
are. or have been, too many men up
there who are afraid of the richness
of their claims. They think they must
be only pockets���that a really big
property couldn't be so rich.
"I know that they're wrong. Tho
mines up there are big and rich all
through, and the men that stay with
them will be the winners."
Mr. Chism intends to have some of
his specimens assayed, and may send
the rest away for exhibition.
Anti-Foreign Outbreaks.
Yekaterinslav, Russia, July 31.���A
distinct anti-foreign sentiment ls being

it had led them to more tangible results in the discovery of some explu

takes place ut the very poinls in   ihe

Toronto, July 31.���The Globe pub*
llshes a special despatch from London
in which Bryan's chances for election
are  freely  canvassed.    It  says:
"We Republicans ure afraid of Bryan/' a famous American politician said
to me this afternoon, and in saying
that he expressed the view of a number ol other American politicians 1
have met within the last few dajs.
"Our hope of defeating him," this man
weal on to say, "is b&aod more than
anytfflng else on the expectation that
he will wreck hiB chances of election
to the presidency by ine indiscreet
ubc of his mouth and pen. If he could
be locked up somewhere for about two
yeurs out of the reach of newspaper
men, und his pronuneiamenlus to the
American publll could bfl censored by
some person of good lioi'se seme, the
probability is that he would be invjn
cible in 1908. What wo Republicans
pray for is ihat bfl may talk and write
continually an! grow steadily in radicalism, lie dooin't stand so well as
he did before he save out that interview in which he resentfully protested
againat thf base charge that he was a
new man, a conservative man, and not
Uie same old Hryan We licked in L890
and 1900. Thai was a silly interview.
It hurt Bryan and helped us. We want
him to keep on Interviewing himself.
Be put his foot in hla mouth in that Interview, anjl we want him to keep it
there. What he said the other day will
not hurl him with some oi his party,
bu. il already has tfiven the prospective harmony a knockout blow. .lust
ai the moment when it began to look
as though all the factions of his,party
would line up for him, he did tlie silliest thing conceivable���erected a monumental silver calf and held a memorial service in honor of his old foolish
self, it was grand fnr us Republicans.
Hryan, the unchanged and unchangeable, will he a polcnt shibboleth. As
a conservative reformer he would bo
Very hard to heat; as an apostle of
discontent, wilder-eyed thtm ever ac-
cording lo his own testimony, he will
be, comparatively Bpeaking, an easy
mark."     ,
"Will Roosevelt run against Bryan?" I asked.
"No; Roosevelt may run In 1912,but
not In 19()s. He realises that his candidacy is Impossible. He's not such
a popular Idol as he was, and he
knows if he should violate his pledge
to not run in U'.S there would be a
strong reaction against him. Tan is
talked of, but could not be elected. We
Republicans must wait awhile before
picking our men. We'll be all the in t-
ter off for wailing. The Democrats
cannot wait. Bryan is their man. He
has got the thing nailed down, and is
sltling on it. We're afraid of him, but
not bo afraid a swe were three weeks
ago. Bet him Interview himself three
or four more times and hold a greal
Bryan memorial service in New York
next month, anil we probably shall
come into such a blissful slate that
our teetli will noi chatter as they do
now every time we hear his name."
Case of Graft in Germany,
Berlin, July 81-���-Emperor William
has ordered a searching investigation
into the case of Major Fischer, who
was attached to the home quaners
Btau in German Southwest Africa, and
wno has been arrested. It appears
lhat Major Fischer had been receiving
money for years from the firm which
has the monopoly of supplying th��
colonial forc.a in German Southwest
Africa. This money was given nominally as loans, and, according to the
press reports, the total of the sums
paid finally reached $25,000, Major
Fischer's salary was $2,000 a year.
There was no prospects whatever of
his ever returning the loans.

record of success as a teacher at

The Washington correspondents left
tor the easl by tho Kusknnoos tblfi
morning. They were delighted with
the scenery nr Hritish Columbia, and
most of all with the west arm of Kootenay lake, on which they were enter,
mined yesterday afternoon. Their on
ly regret was that Nelson was so
crowded tbat hotel accommodation
was at' a premium. Launches were
furnished yesterday by S. M. ISrydgos,
<;. A. Hunter, S. S. Taylor and G, P.
Wells, and a couple of hours were
spent very pleasantly visiting iruit
Kootenay   Fruit   at   Winnipeg.
Small as is the exhibit in the agricultural building, it Is a great improvement on last year, both in the attractiveness of the display and the quality.
One of the first things to catch the
public eye is a half dozen .or so of
rainbow trout, caught In Kootenay
lake, and frozen into a large block of
ice, the effect being quite novel, says
the Telegram. The trout are shown
by the Kootenay Frail Growers' Association, who also make a fine display
of fruit of all kinds grown on their
farms. The interested visitor is referred to tbe well-got-up handbooks
and pamphlets for the full particulars
and joys of fruit farming in the Oka-
nagan and Kootenay valleys.
The British Columbia Fruit Company's exhibit consists of grand samples
of apples, pears, peaches, plums, white
currants, cherries, grapes, quinces, tomatoes and blackberries. The same
firm show n fine assortment of (lowering bulbs, including narcissi, daffodils
tulips, crocuses and others.
