Literature     of    the     Day     Arranged
With   All   Conveniences.
P. Lftmont has Installed a new feature ln his establishment All the
books have hi un gathered together
from all parts of the store and placed
in a very neat library formed of
Wernicke cu-ues In the lower half of
the store. The cases art; so arranged
as to make one large room and several smaller ones. The books are
sin. divided into classes for tac convenience of customers. The library
contains all the reference works
most in demand, Ihe standard poets,
historians, biographers and novelists.
lu a few weeks a Special apartment
will  be devoted to school texts.
A   considerable   space   Is   devoted   lo
recent wnrks, among which novels are
most numerous. These arc in tlie
tftrgesl apartment, and a willing table
is arranged beside them.
Among the latest books, published
just before the summer season, U
Guy Thome's 'First It Was Ordaiu-
ed," dealing with the race suicide
problem from the author's conception
of the  religious  point of view.
The most that can be said of It
fr��m a literary point of view Is that
It Is not nearly so bad as the author's
first   venture, "When  It  Was  Dark."
The book ts quite readable and
touches a problem which is now of
more than academic Interest, and is
certainly worthy of attention as a
contribution lo ihe discussion of a
subjeet of which ihe American magazines are  full.

South African Supremacy.
London. Aug. 8.���tt Is being suggested thnt a small party of American
colored preachers, who have been advocating the Ethiopian propaganda,
"Africa for the Africans," sliould be
deportesl from Soutb Alrlca. Tbo governmenl has not yet taken any action
ami  It Is a question whether It  will.

responsible. Tney have made no secret of their mission to South Africa,
advising the natives to use their efforts to secure supremacy ln that part
of the world.
Mineral  Development Continues to Be
(Special to The Dally Canadian.)
Greenwood, B. C, Aug. 8.���The
week has opened very auspiciously ln
th high-grade belt. On Monday a
most encouraging strike was made on
the Prince Henry and the property is
rapidly showing the earmarks of a
mine. From the 170-foot level a
drift waa recently started north. At
a distance of six feet from the shaft
a body of solid antlmonial silver ore
waa struck. The lead ls from four
to ten inches wide and assays from
$200 to $��.. per ton obtained. This
vein Is believed to be identical with
that near the surface from which a
smelter test of ten tons of unsorted
ore yielded $100 per ton. The working force will be increased at once
and   stoping  begun.
From the 300-foot level of the Elk-
hom a crosscut is being run to catch
the lead. At a point ten feet from
the shaft the drift is all in richly
mineralized rock, and the company's
management expects to break into the
lead proper at any moment. From the
upper leads of this lead the company
shipped $75,000 worth of ore nearly
two years ago. The new management
abandoned stoping there, preferring
to deepen the shaft and open up stoping ground below. When the Elkhorn
was on the shipping list its ore from
the dump averaged $100 to the ton.
The policy of the present management
is to keep development work well in
advance, but when tbe lead is openedd
on the present level the mine will
again go on the list of regular shippers.

J. G. Gordon Say�� It It in Very 9��4 \
Condition���Important  Discovery
of Hematite in Alberta.
J. G. Gordon returned last evening
from a trip into Southeastern British
Columbia by way of Alberta, and,
when aeen by a representative of the
Canadian, he made a statement of
what he had seen on his trip which,
summarized,  is as  follows:
"I went in and came out by way of
Pincher creek. The crops in Southwestern Alberta will be much better
than they promised1 to be in tbe early-
part of the season, thoug hthey wil)
not generally equal those of last year.
1 found four machines at work, boring
lor oil, and a fifth being set up for
Uurt**i��urpoBt' on the souih fork of Old
Man's river, Alberta. All of these are
in Alberta except one, the chief
stockholders in the company operating being Greenwood people. The
load or trail into Southeastern Brit-
.sh Columbia from Alberta is for some
dozen of miles an exceedingly bad
one. Some work has been done on it
on both sides of the mountains, but
the work on the western slope ceased
just where the worst part of the trail
had been reached. It would appear
from the place on which the work
thereon had been done as if the intention of those who did this work in
British Columbia was to select uie
part of the trail where the greatest
show could be made at the least cost.
On both sides of the mountains the
trail is for these dozen miles very
very bad, and on the British Columbia
side of them it is almost impassable.
Horses almost mire there when going
over or through it. Proper trails and
roads should unquestionably be made
Into this part of the province and
without delay. The present state of
things is greatly retarding the development of that country, and I feel
sure that if they were known to and
realized by the government of the
province the matter would be taken
In hand at once and remedied. A
proper road should be made southward from the section house at the
uoop and the trail from Oil City���the
part of It in this province���should eb
made a good one. As it ts, if one
were to go in there to examine a
property, he would naturany come to
the conclusion that the governments
concerned were strangely indifferent
to the opening up of that country, and
he would be physically in capable of
doing justice to tbe property In ques
"What is represented as a very
large deposit of hematite ore has been
discovered in Southwestern Alberta.
which, with abundant coal near at
hand, will have a great Influenc*.
should It prove to be as extensive and
valuable as represented, In transforming that part of Canada into a manufacturing center. The iron deposits
of British Columbia are believed by
some to be extensive, but they are entirely undeveloped. The discovery of
good iron in large quantities in Alberta will have a very marked effect
on the manufacturing industries of

New York, Aug. 8.���A special dl_-
patch to the Herald from Dutch harbor, Alaska,. says:
"Five Japanese were shut auid kill*
ed on the island of St. Paul, of the.
Pribyloff group, by order of tha
agent of the department of commerce
and labor on July 17, as the result
of a raid by four Japanese schooners
on  the  seal  rookeries.
'"The revenue cutter MeCulloch
reached here today from St. Paul with
12 prisoners, two seriously wounded
who were turned over to deputy mar- I
shat Harmon. The raiders were dls- -
covered lying near the northeast point
of St. Paul by native lookouts of the
North American commercial company, which leases the seal privileges
irom the government. Word was telegraphed from the patrol station near
the rookery for which the raiders
were aiming, and the special agent,
Lempkie, ot the department of commerce on duty in the Pribyloff Islands
arrived on the spot as the Japanese
reached shore. He ordered the boat
crew to surrender, which they did.
On climbing the promontory at the
end of the cape overlooking one of
ihe larger rookeries a schooner waa
seen close in shore. Looking straight
slown over the cliff the patrol was a
dozen or more Japanese skinning a
great number of seals, which had
been  slaughtered   indiscriminately.
Tbe raiders refused to surrender
when Lempke reached the scene and
tried to make off with their booty in
small boats, several -of which were
drawn up on shore. The agent then
ordered his guard of natives to open
lire. The Japanese offered no resist*
ence, being without Are arms. Three
of the raiders fell dead on the beach,
a fourth was* seen to be thrown overboard from one of the boats that escaped, and a fifth body drifted ashore
later In another boat. The men had
killed more than 2(io seals, many of
...em cows. Those who escaped carried away more than 1.0 skins. The
raid is believed to have been a concentrated effort by the Japanese who
tave been hanging around the island
for months and giving the revenue
cutter much trouble.'
The Tokwa Maru, a schooner, was
overhauled by uie cutter Perry on
July Bth, off the New Volcanic Island
which rose near Bogoslogo, 40 miles
from here, last March. She was
crowded with Japanese but no seal
skins were found aboard. The suspicion of Casptain Donwoody of the
Perry were aroused and he proceeded
to the Pribyloffs at once, but a dense
fog set In and lasted until the Perry
returned here on July ICth. The Mcculloch reached the island on July 20
.and took charge nf the prisoners.
Beside the Tokwa Maru the schooner Bosbo Mnru is known to have been

Or occurred in the troubled history,
of the rookeries. The last attempt
to raid the island was made about
ten years ago by a schooner flying
the Mexican flag. She was intercepted by a cutter sent out for the
purpose and many prisoners were
tnken after the raid, but were ail-
lowed to return to their vessels, as
the guard was considered insufficient
to control so. many. The prisoners
buried their own dead on the beach.
In trying to return to the seal Islands with Agent Lemke on July 22
the Perry broke her cylinder pump
a mile from shore and was put com-
nleli'ly out of business. This leaves
the patrol short of vessels and the Islands unguarded.

No sooner wan the Lord's Day act
passed by the Dominion parliament
than it was discovered that an error
in the text vitiated the entire effect
tveness of the aoi and an extra edition of the Gazette contained a re-publication of the clause with the neoes
aury corrections. Since that time the
uct has lieen closely sorutlnlsed bji
competent critics and it lias been
found that as a piece of legislation
it excels anything that has yet been
turned oui at the legislative mills ot
Uie Dominion capital. It is impossible
to for ma conclusion a-s to whethei
the phraseology of tbe act is deliberately Intended to defeat the ends
for which it was presumably passed
or whpther. in the multitude of the
counselors who devised the not, there
was not wisdom.
Not ouly is prosecution under the
clauses of the act impossible without
thu consent of the provincial attorney
generals, a thing which in Itself is as
good us malting it Inoperative, bul it
hub been discovered tiiat Lhe Dominion act confers upon the provinces
powers which they did not possess be-
before the act was passed, and which
the privy council decided wen- ultra
vlreB of the provinces. Clause 2 of
the act reads as follows:
"2���It shall not be lawful for an>
Person on the Lord's day. except as
provided herein, or in any provincial
act or luw uow or hereafter in force,
to sell or offer for sale or purchase
any goods, chattels or oiher personal
property, or any real estate, or to
carry on or transact any business of
his ordinary callitiK. or for gadn, ie
do, or employ any other person to do.
on that day any work, business Ol
As the Toronto Mall-Empire remarks, that may be sound, alright,
but it really means that "It shall bu
lawful for any person on the Lord's
day, if u provincial law, now in force,
or hereafter to he passed, so suvf
to sell, or offer for sale or purchase.'
aud so on to tlie end of tlie clause.
Glauses 5 and d are equally Inter

"5���It shall not be lawful for any
perSOQ on the Lord's day. except as
provided in any provincial act now or

to give any entertainment at which

"0���-Il shall not be lawful for an>
person on the Lord's day, exoepl as
provided in any provincial act or law

Thus.- under the terms of tlie act.
any province may pass legislation allowing games and excursions and
many other things which at first
sight it would appear that the act
wa-s  Intended   io  prohibit
It is lidle wonder, in the light of
these revelations, that the cartoonists
ai. funny writers of the eastern papers are describing the uct as n gold
brick, and. apart from any moral aspect   of   tbe  question,   it   would   eeem
ilia I after lhe strenuous debate in
the house of commons and the pleasing intimation that under no other
than a French Canadian premier, and
particularly a Liberal premier, could
such an act have lieen secured. Next
session of the parliament will probably see amendments to this act. and
we sincerely hope that it will be
amended In some such way as shall
give expression to right ideal upon the
ouservancL* of- the day called Sunday
As it is the act is being correctly pronounced  a* farce.
ihe provincial legislature was subjected to every sort of abuse at tlie
hands of the opposition press of British Columbia because it passed a
school act which In a few minor
points was advisedly amended. It
will be some satisfaction to them to
be  told  thwt   there are  others.
At the recent meeting of the Colonial congress in London two resolutions were adopted which were particularly gratifying to Canadians. One
of them carried by a vote of 104 to
11. was favorable to the adoption of
n scheme of preferential tariffs between ihe colonies and the mother
country, and the other looked to the
formation of an imperial council. The
urst of these provides for the rtul-
justment of all trade relations and
will undoubtedly place Canada in a
much more favorable relation iu mat
lers of commerce with England than
she has ever enjoyed before. The difficulties iu the way of a realisation
of this scheme are not so great with
respect to Canada as with some of
the other colonies, but as one of the
.speakers wisely remarked: "They
may be left to look after themselves."
meaning probably that when they discover what terms will best suit them
the tariffs can he adjusted, even if
they differ from tlie Canadian nr
The credit for the proposal to establish an Imperial council belongs to
Mr. K. Alexander of Vancouver, and
In speaking to the resolution he urged
upon the government and the governments of the colonies the appointment
ni an Imperial council, to consider
questions of imperial interests, espe
dally those tending to promote International trade. He regarded this as
a natural corollary of the motion carried at the morning session. The first
resolution was a declaration of opinion; the present proposal, ir adopted,
would be a means of giving effect to
that opinion. The council suggested
il would discuss the requirements of
the various colonies, and find means
of adjusting any differences which
might he found to exist between them.
It would be of great value in moderating extreme viewo, while serving to
bring about n consolidation of the
Hritish empire,
Home of the other speakers went
even further and thought that it was
high time to look ahead to an imperial parliament when all the col-
onien should have representation in
the discussions and decisions of an
imperial house. That may not Boon
come, Inn it goes to show that the Imperialistic idea Is taking rool in all
the colonies. Some few years ago
there was a fear that the empire
might break up. but thai danger, If
ll ever existed, is Beemlngly past.
The mother country will have from
her children that solicitous care for
her welfare that is such an admirable
Ohorracteristlo of the human family in
all iis relations. Having given being
to the colonies, bone of her bone and
flesh of her flesh, they will nol, in
her old age, stand ity and see the
mother country Butter dissolution,
i ue younger members of tlie great
family are willing to share in all the
worries and burdens of ihe mother
land, and none of them is more pre
pared to display its loyalty than is
Canada  today.
That the city of Nelson is a thorough-pacing example of admiration
for the manly sports ls again to be
evinced in the arrangement now being
perfected to send a- cricket team to
the coast to contest for ihe champion
snip at the full exhibitions there. The
game of cricket is one which appeals
much more io ilie participant than
usually io ihe spectator, but thi re art-
some characteristics of thai form of
recreation that distinguish It from all
others. Without making odious comparisons or even comparisons that
may not be odious, the special feu-
lures of cricket are such thut a reference to ihem ma\ interest many
who al the present time, because of
iheir lack of knowledge of the game,
may become enthusiasts in years tu
come. Recvntly tbe Toronto (ilohe
uad occasion to make some comment
on the gentlemanly features of that
game, as distinguished from tlie caddish manner in which ii is played by
some professionals and amateurs who
seem unable to rise above ilu- characteristics of Ibe cad, uo matter in
utiai amusemenl they may indulge.
Speaking of th'* gentleman's game, as
played by such, tin* Globe says: "Golf
and tennis nre games for ladies and
gentlemen. Cricket is a game for
gentlemen. Rut it takes all sorts and
conditions of games to make up the
world of sport. Th normal object of
a game is enjoyment for thos-j who
participate, an enjoyment that may
���be shared by interest ids pectators
The slowness of a game of cricket is
redeemed by the keen, healthy enjoyment of the players. It beams from
their faces at every turn of the game,
and nowhere more than in their eag
erness to applaud the good play of an
opponent. Every clever cut or draw,
every magnificent drive, every well
taken catch or sharp return from the
field wins free acknowledgement. The
spirit of contagious good-fellowship is
in the air, and the game ends with
the highest mutual appreciation. How
uinerent is tlie game played with a
grim and paramount desire to win! It
is nol that the < rickoter is indifferent
io tbe result of the game, for he III
eraily glories in a victory. But thai
love of victory is always kept subset-
vlent to his spirit of fairness and to
ins gentlemanly regard for the rights
and feelings of his opponents. A true
cricketer takes the keenest de'ight in
a victory, hut would take no pleasure
In winning dlshonstly nor by any
means that would prevent his opponents from doing their best." When
Nelson sends her team to the coast
it will he with the confidence that so
far as the local players are concerned,
nothing that would discredit the name
of a gentleman will  be  tolerated.

Summer Waists Denounced.
Portland, Ore.. Aug. 8 ���The girl
who sports u peek-a-boo waisl had
better begin to sew up tlie openwork
or else tiny senwible linings, for a
storm is brewing that threatens to
devolve into a regular whirlwind ot
disapproval. All up-to-date girls like
odd things, to be sure, and like to be
considered characteristic, hut members
of the W. C. T. D. ure sure they will
nol care to be pointed out peek-u-buo
girls alter the organization puts tha
slump of its severe disapproval up
on this Bouth sea isluud mode of
dress. Uowu in Los Angeles the
ol ner day, where ii Ib bo hoi thai
the temptation tu wear Ice cream
(slothes is strong, the state oonven
tion of lhe \V. I'. T. D. formally took
up the ipiestion of women und gir.s
wearing llun and openwork waists,
which show pretty necks or alluring
lingerie, nud strongly condemned the
whole business. Now il is Portland's
The staite convention of the Oregon W. C. T. I', will not be held
until September, and there is still a
month of comfort ror the summer
girl, hut If the ipiestion comes up at
this convention, which it is very
.ikely to do. the French laundries
will probably have to close up for
wunt  of  business.
"it's not bo much the thin waists
as what they wear under them,"
stuted a strenuous temperance worker lately. U wns suggested that whin
tile girls did not wear under tlie thill
waists hati more to do with the qnes
Uon than otherwise, nnd, after ma
turo consideration, she agreed tlial
thai   was  more like il.
"I'd hate lo say what 1 think of
tnem." said another, who was attending the regular meeting of the Central W. C. T. U. "I wouldn't use the
word immoral lu connection with
anything ol the kind, us so many of
our good people wear them, but I
really do not think they aire modest."
And these waists that button
down the back!" lidded a companion
worker. "The women who wear such
ridiculous fashions bad better be sure
ihey are buttoned  before they go on
the Btreet. The Idea ol a grown
woman wearing anything bo ridtcu
"Another thing I don't approve of,"
stated Ihe first speaker, "are these
short sleeves which show a woman's
elbow. They may look all right in
front, but 1 think It lookB Just terrible to see a pair of bare elbows
sticking  out  behind���"
"And bo many women have bony
elbows, too!" added the other.
Mrs. L. F. Addlton, state president, frankly stated that she considered the style of thtn waists worn by
women  at present Immoral.
'"The W. C. T. U. standB for purity
In Its Btrongest and highest sense."
shei said, "and Immodest forms of
dresB are condemned hy all our organizations moBt severely. Of course,
we cannot take any action toward
preventing the wearing of such gar-
incuts, but we can express our disapproval and put ourselves on record
as ��� ngaiiiHl   such   Immodesty."
