Best Catches for  Many  Years Reported
From   Great   Lakes.
Cleveland, July  S.���For the past decade there bits  been  a   tailing off iu the
quantity  of  fled   caught   in tin> Oreat
Lakes; this year, however, the nets of
the fishing eompaitlcH all along the
chain of lakes have almost Invariable
been overrunning with fish when lifted
Tlie present season promises one ol the
targqpt catches of Bah recorded In many
years. The usual output of the hikes
for several years past has been dose tu
160,000,00 annually, of which Lake Brfe
produced over half. During the spring
GO per cent, of the catch is blue pike,
while perch, herring and white ttsh
make up the remainder. In the summer
season 80 per cent, of the catch is her
ring, with blue pike and white fish composing the remaining 10 per cent. The
success of the hshermen. who lish every
day during the year, contradicts the
supposition that the lakes' supply of
Bah is giving out. The increase in the
astch this year Is doubtless due to the
protection of flsh given by the various
slate laws prohibiting Ashing during the
winter season and to the law regulating
ihe size of the mesh of the nets. The
guvernmeii! spends thousands of dollars
each year in propagating fish in the
Great Lakes, which supply about half
of the flsh consumed in the United
Stales. Although the supply was greater this spring, yet the price pructlcally
was unchanged owing to the high price
of meat, which oauaed a greater demand
for  flsh.
Splendid Display of Kootenay  Products
of All  Kinds for Fairs on the
Those who have charge of the exhibit
for the Winnipeg Fair are having a \
busy time of it. In the rear of Alderman Annables office there are a number
or boxes partly filled with the exhibits,
and Messrs. Mcl'hee and Hyslop, who
will accompany the exhibit to Winnipeg,
are busy getting everything packed
away, so that the products of the Kootenay will arrive iu good shape a', the
Prairie capital.
If the exhibition took place a little
later in the season, the display from the
Kootenays would have ue��-u bctt-or, but
even early as it is, there will be many
things that will open the eyes of the
visitors to the Winnipeg exhibition.
There will be a large variety of Koote-
nuy glasses. The clover is a particularly lino specimen, being over six feet in
length, and will afford some Idea or the
remarkable vegetation of the Kootenays. There are all descriptions of bottled fruits, such as cherries, strawberries, currants, gooseberries, peaches,
pears, plums, quinces, nectarines, etc.
The fruit on branches will be shipped
later on.
The Kaslo people have forwarded a
collection of stuffed animals that should
prove un attractive feature of the ex-
riutt. The mineral exhibit will be one
of the best ever sent out of the Kootenays. It was prepared by T. O. Procter,
and is a credit to that gentleman.
The product of Kootenay Lake in the
way of flsh will be shipped on ice, and.
there Is no reason why it should not he
a good one. Much pains has been taken
with this exhibit, and those In charge
are pleased with it.
Much credit is due to the ladles of
Nelson for their efforts in connection
with the preparation of the floral display. They extended to the committee
the privilege of going into the gardens
and securing the best specimens. In
addition to this they will forward from
day to day to the managers of the Koo-
tenuy exhibit at Winnipeg a splendid
collection of Nelson-grown (lowers.
Inasmuch as there will have to be a
great deal of the exhibit shipped to
Winnipeg from outside points, it is desirable that all those outside of Nelson
who are going to send In exhibits
should forward them direct to Winnipeg addressed to "Kootenay Exhibit,
Exhibition." All express charges have
been arranged.
Brandon Crop Report.
Brandon, Man., July S.���The latest
crop reports from the country south of
Brandon show the crop in that section
Of the country to bo coming along as
favorably as can he expected considlng
ihe late start It received. In the Brandon Hills section the wheat is fully 21
Inches high and in the short blade. The
splendid weather of the past week or
so is accountable for tills remarkable
growth. On Wednesday the wheat lu
this part of the country averaged 10
Inches In height. On the Sunday previous It only measured six inches; thus,
in about, 10 days It has grown nearly
L5 Inches. Thomas Lowes, one of the
big farmers In the RoHolnnd district,
was In the city today und he speaks In
glowing terms of the crop outlook. Thu
Wheat Is now in the short blade, Mr.
Lowes says, and Is strong and healthy.
He brought to the city with him today a
���ample ot the wheat, which measured
21   Inchos.
Fielding's Balance Due to
Raised Prices
Another Liberal Pre-Election Promise
Fails of Fruition���Trade
Returns Misleading.
Ottawa, July 8.���Ten or 12 years ago
It was the policy of the Liberal party to
make Canada a cheap country to live in.
We do not hear so much of this in late
years, but the statement has become familiar that public salaries must be Increased    because    of   COSt   of    living.      A
Civil Service Commission haa been appointed to inquire Into the conditions
and salaries of civil servants. This
week the Civil Service association, representing nearly li.000 members of the
Inside service, piesented a memorial,
supported by a statement of market
prices of some hundreds of articles in
use by the ordinary family.
Memorialists make it appear that the
price of provisions has increased 33 per
cent, in the last 10 years, that the increase in the price of clothing is at
least 25 per cent., that rents in Ottawa
have gone up 25 or 30 per cent, and
board and lodging in the same proportion. Persons who desire to own their
own home And the cost of building increased 25 or 30 per cent., furniture 15
und 25 per cent, and in such lines as
kitchen goods up to 50 per cent. An
elaborate summary shows that a family
living on an Income of $750 a year
woulj now pay $12.17 a week for the
same articles of common use which 10
yeurs ago cost $9.06. Families living In
a better way on an Income of $2,000
pay $148.94 per month for the same ar
tides which 10 years ago cost $116.76
Another table shows thut typical expenditures for a family of Ave on a salary
of $1,200 have increased from $77.50 to
$100.60 per month.
These statements, which are admittedly correct, go a great deal farther
than the civil service. What is true of
life In Ottawa Ib true in other places.
The man on a salary who has not had
his pay Increased some 30 per cent, in
10 years is worse off than he was In
1897. It is shown by the statement that
the lower the standard of living the
greater has been the Increase in prices.
Articles used by the poor have advanced
more than those consumed by families
in good circumstances. All the talk
that is heard about good times and in*
crease ot business should be considered
In the light of these facts. These are
not good times for a man whose Income
has been increased one quarter while
his outlay has grown one third.
Again, when the manufacturers talk
of Increased trade and production it
must be remembered that even if they
bought, sold or produced no more goods
than before their statement by values
would show an increase of 25 of 50 per
cent. Census Commissioner Blue has Issued statements showing large Increase
In manufacturing operations In recent
years, but he does not state how much
of that increase is due to higher prices
obtained for the same products and
higher prices paid for the same raw material, and the higher cost of plant represented In fixed values. The mlulster
of trade and commerce issues statements showing large increases tn imports and exports. He too makes his
statements on the basis of values and
not of quantities. He could report an
Increase of 50 per cent, on many articles, if there had not been a gain of one
yard or one pound in quantly of traffic.
After all it is no great sign of increased
trade when only the same amount of
goods ia bought and sold and the price
marked  up ��ay  50 per cenL
But it is all gain to the tax collector.
Ho imposes the duty upon values and
not Upon quantities. If the Importer
pays one third more for the snme bill
of dry goods or of hardware, the collector of customs drops in on him and
makes him pay one third more In duty.
Then tho wholesaler and retailer have
to charge their profit, not only on tho
increase of the goods, hut also on the
Increased customs duty. There is no
doubt that the people of Canada aro
paying today in taxation on imported
articles at least one quarter more duty
than they would have paid on the same
goods 10 years ago. This means ten or
twelve million dollars extra revenue for
Mr. Fielding. It enables him to boast
of a surplus. But it compels wage earners to go to their employers with complaints of the additional cost of living.
Householders cannot pay these extra
taxes and have the money to buy tho
things they want or to lay aside for
a rainy day.
Now tho government can make up the
loss to the civil service by paying an
extra salary. Officers receiving $900
can have $1,200, which will leave them
as well off as 10 years ago. But the
government will not increase the pay of
men in private employment in proportion to the increased cost of living It
cunnot return to the farmer the extra
cost of his farm Implements, his hardware, his clothing and other necessaries
of life. It can do nothing for the family with a fixed income?. All these private
persons must suffer or Und some other
source of additional income. At the
same time they must contribute the
amount required to increase the salaries
of the public servants to provide for
their increased coat of living.
The Orand Trunk Pacific company is
working up a magnificent hill of damages against the government. The
agreement was that u section of ihe
road to be constructed by the government from Winnipeg eastward should
be completed this autumn so that the
company, which was building a line connecting with Lake Superior, would
handle tlie crop of this year. The company will have its branch ready, but
the government is a year or two years
behind. S,nsequently the company's
road will stand idle and the claim for
damages will he made. It will be paid,
as everything is paid which the company asks.
Well not quite everything. I>ast year
the company put in a bill for money alleged to have been expended "on construction" of the prairie section. The
bill Included promotion expenses, for a
large part of which outlay the company
submitted no vouchers or details. The
railway department said it was all right
and passed the bill for payment. But
Officer Shannon and Deputy Minister
Courtney held up the account, lemand-
Ing particulars.. Rather than ave the
details published and examined by the
Public Accounts committee the company withdrew the claim. All inquiry
into this bill by the committee of parliament was blocked by the ministers
and their supporters. To make concealment more complete the government
handed back to the company the public documents relathig to the claim. The
Grand Trunk auditor official was summoned to explain the matter to the committee. He disobeyed the order and
sailed at once for Europe. These desperate measures concealed from the
public have the details of the cash payments that were made by the company
to get the contract adopted and the
measure through  parliament.
But there will be no concealment
about the claim for damages affecting
the Lake Superior branch. This bill will
not be withdrawn.

American Bases on Pacific to Be Greatly Strengthened���Orders to Rush
Repair Work.
Portland, Ore., July 8.���A despatch to
the Oregonian from Seattle says orders
have been given to rush the work on
the battleship Oregon and Wisconsin,
which are undergoing extensive repairs
at the yards. The new battleship Nebraska, which went into commission a
week ago, is to have her alterations
made and the crew will be called out
as soon as men can be brought here.
Portland, Ore., July 8.���A despatch to
the Oregonian from Seattle says Admiral Burwell. commandant of the Paget Sound navy yards, has sent an urgent
request that two extra dry docks be
built at Bremerton in addition to the
now dock congress authorized a year
ago, and which the navy department
has Just commenced to construct. The
drydock to be built immediately will be
twice as large as the solitary dock in
the Puget Sound yard, but Admiral Bur-
well believes with the nntural increase
of the American fleet In the Pacific, and
the fact that the deeper draught boats
cannot get into the Mare Island dock,
extensive additions will have to be
made at Bremerton.

Crusade Against
of Lords
Resolution Finds Luke-Warm Support in Commons and None
at Ail Elsewhere.
London, July 8.���Sir Henry-Campbell-
Bannerman's House of Lords problem,
the proposal of which was heralded
with such a flourish of ram's horn blowing on the opening day of the present
session, has not created the sensation
which it was expected to. The premier
has played his part of knightly championship, but the only importance attached to the academic and important
resolution, which was passed by a majority of 285, is that It might be supposed to represent the main issue upon
which the government intends to appeal
to the country at the next general elec
tlon. \M 4
But, considering how long the moun-
taih has been rumbling, the mouse produced Is a very small and Insignificant
one, not at all calculated to intimidate
or coerce the house of lords. The proposal was distasteful to many members
of the government. But, having introduced the subject in the King's speech,
the premier was obliged to bring it forward at some period of the session.
To be mentioned in the King's si>eech
Is to a public question what being presented at court is to a private person.
It is a formal recognition of a certain
political status, as the other is of a
social one. The subject is thenceforth
among those which may be legitimately
entertained by ministers of the Crown,
and they are entitled to a respectful
hearing by whomsoeve r they are
brought forward.
The premier's resolution has had a
respectful hearing lasting three days,
but it does not formulate a plan. Radical supporters in the press say It is
sufficient at the present juncture, the
proper \w.��v- ���������� taunchlnc a d**ti*vlte
scheme being just before the next general election.
But as the government is determined
not to be hustled into a dissolution that
may not be in the near future the pith
of the proposal is that any party with
a majority of members in the lower
house at any given time shall have the
whole power of the Imperial parliament.
The premier suggests an appeal
against the suspensory veto of the upper
house, but an appeal would be back
again in the lower house, in other words
a retrial by the same jury.
Unionists say that if any appeal is
granted it ought to be to the only higher
authority, namely, the constituencies.
But here again a difficulty is observed
by old parliamentary hands. It Is not
possible in Enghind to fight a general
election on a single issue. If the proposal were a bill, instead of an abstract
academic resolution���and if it became
an act it would practically remove from
the constitution the second chamber altogether���it would give a party with a
working majority absolute power to
carry any btll tt pleased. The glided
chamber could thus be reduced to a
mere machine for registration of its own
Much has been heard during the debates In the house of commons about
the "will of the people," and the prime
minister has over and over again emphasized the declaration "that the British people must be masters of their own
It has been remarked that Sir Henry
Campbell-Baunerman will not condescend to read history, and that, he has
forgotten what has taken place during
his own political career. But he cannot have forgotten that the second
Home Rule Bill of Br. Gladstone was
rejected by the house of lords, and that
that action was soon afterwards approved by an overwhelming majority of
the voters.
If "C. H.'s" scheme had been in operation that hill would have become a law
against the "will of the people," which
the prime minister professes to safeguard. The house of lords rejected but
did not prevent Home Rule. Had tho
couutry given a mandate for Home Rule
it would have been granted. The lords
will be quick enough for their own sake
to note when the country has made up
its mind.
War of Gunboats.
Mexico, July 8.���President Cabrera,
of Guatemala, Is negotiating for the purchase of a navy to meet the anticipated
attack of President Zelaya, of Nicaragua, It was learned from a high source
that Cabrera hud recently' secured 1600,-
000 lu gold on a forced loan, and with
this sum he will purchase gunboats. The
Nlcaraguan fleet in the Pacific waters
conslts of three gunboats, also three
gunboats  on   the   Atlantic.
Cupro-Nickel   Missile   Has   Remarkable
Flat  Trajectory.
Washington, July 8.���Reports from
the Hague conference that a disposition
exists in certain quarters to raise the
question of prohibiting the rifle bullet
adopted by Great Britain, Germany,
France, and America has served to perplex the experts of the army and navy
ordnance bureaus here. Even the medical officers in both services are at a loss
to conjecture what reasonable ground
of objection can be found against tbe
use of tlie new cupro-nlckel, sharp-
pointed 190G model bullet.
It was reported from the Hague that
this bullet was more dangerous than
the "dum-dum" bullet, but the experts
here are a unit In declaring thai, the
aew bullet is, if anything, more humane
than the old bullet, so far as concerns
the nature of the wound inflicted by it.
But according to the ordance officers
in one way, at least, the new bullet is
apt to be more dangerous than the old,
and that is in killing or wounding more
This is not because the bullet deforms upon striking an object, but from
the reason that, owing to ita higher
velocity, the bullet has a remarkable
flat trajectory. The consequence is that,
travelling in an almost horizontal plane,
the new bullet would be certain to strike
an object within the 1.000 yards range
which the old bullet would pass clean
over. Thus the list of fatalities would
probably be largely increased.

Chamberlain's Birthday.
Joseph Chamberlain, the eminent
British statesman whose health for
some time past has been a matter of
grave concern to his friends, was born
July 8, 1836, in London. When he was
20 years old he removed to Birmingham
and engaged in business. In 1863 he began his political career. For five years
he was an agitator, chiefly In support
of a national education entirely free
from denominational control. In 1873
he was unanimously elected president
of the Birmingham school board. Thrice
elected mayor of Birmingham, he reformed and set in order the municipal
government, deservedly earning tne
highest reputation as a municipal administrator. He entered parliament in
1S76. In 1886 Mr. Chamberlain was
president of the Local Government
Board in Mr. Gladstone's cabinet, but
resigned owing to disagreement with
his leader on Home Rule for Ireland.
Upon the accession of Lord Hartlngton
to the peerage Mr. Chamberlain became
the leader of the Liberal-Unionist party
in the House of Commons. His greatest, reputation was acquired as secretary of state for the colonies, which position he filled from 1895 to 1903. In
1888 Mr. Chamberlain was married to
the daughter of W. C. Endlcott, who
was secretary of war in President
Cleveland's first cabinet.

Seen by a representative of The Daily
Canadian this morning Mr. Phillips declared that the convention was one of

to destroy the miners' organisation.
Two of the most important resolution adopted were: one stating that no
obligation must be taken by any member to do anything contrary to his duty
to his God, his country or his fellow
men; the other, that in future every detail of conventions be taken down in
the stenographers' reports and pub- .
lluhed in full, that tbe public may see
that there is no Inner Circle.
Mr. Phillips explains that C. H. Moyer
and W. D. Haywood remain president
and secretary respectively, without reelection. The constitution provides for
election from tho floor of the convention, and nominations mu��t be invited.
This was done but no nominations were
received, consequently the present official!), according to their installation
oaths, hold office tin their successors
are appointed.
There were very few changes made
in the constitution of the executive
board. An alternative was elected for
Jack Slmpkins. Ernest Mills, of Greenwood, is again the executive representative of the British Columbia district.
There were, Mr. Phillips says, several present aa accredited delegates
who are known by the executive board
to be Plnkerton men. No action was
taken. The Federation is not afraid of
anything they can learn, and they prefer having such spies known to them to
others that might get in if they were expelled.
Of the Haywood trial Mr. Phillips did
not wish to say anything further than
that he believed thoroughly in the innocence of the accused men, and was confident that Orchard's evidence would be
proved false.

London, July 8,-^-The Rev. Dr. Joseph
Crane Hartzell, who holds a commission as Bishop of Africa from the Methodist Episcopal Church of America, has
come to London to attend the Evangelical Conference, which opens next
week. He speaks very hopefully of the
future of the Transvaal.
"I believe," he said, "that the Boer
War was only a period in the development of Africa, and that In the Transvaal the Dutch will now make rapid
progress under the British flag. The
best elements of both nationalities will
combine. One of the greatest difficulties
now Is that two languages are spoken
by the whites, but that will probably he
overcome. The great problem coming
in Africa Is the uegro problem. The
nation that does the best for the negro
will win out. The negro Ib capable of
being a useful citizen. He has not political rights in the Transvaal, but, being on the same basis as the white man
ii the Cape Colony, he controls certain
districts there. The, negroes have their
own schools in many places In the Capo
Colony. They even have negro newspapers.
"A rather remarkable thing happened
the other day at a mooting of negro
chiefs in the Capa Colony. They actually started a movement to raise $300,-
000 for the higher education of their
Some persons talk of exterminating
the negro. Such talk Is foolish. The
negro Is a race that doesn't exterminate
worth a cent."

Under all these circumstances, the revival of a once discarded scheme under
far less favorable conditions than be*
fore, the suddenness of the Impulse, the
violation of his own principles as to
pledging self-governing colonies, and
the zeal shown by his reiterated advocacy of it OD all possible occasions, it
is hard to avoid the conclusion that tne
���'All-Ked Route" has been chosen by Sir
Wilfrid as the cry for a Dominion campaign, to distract attention from the delay in tin' construction of the Grand
Trunk Pacific, from the Incompetence
and Immorality of ministers and from
the Hood of electoral corruption which
has been denounced not only by political opponents but by every religious organization in the land. Whether the
"All-Red" Hag will be red enough to
hide the bhu-kness of his administrative record, depends upon the intelligence of the electors of Canada.

If the reported shortness of weight in
the crates of herries shipped from Kootenay district be duo to any misunderstanding of regulations, the mistake
cannot be rectilied too soon. The provincial department of agriculture and
the Dominion fruit marks inspectors
have heen doing their best by rigid Inspection, by insisting on proper marking and on the destruction of ail Infected fruit, both home-grown and imported, to keep British Columbia's reputation high. Their efforts will all have
been in vain if the growers deliberately
send out light weight boxes and Ciatea
to  the  prairie  markets.
Premier McHride will soon be home

Business Men Fear Results of Strike on
The prominence given by Sir Wilfrid
Laurier. and after him by the Liberal
press, to his late advocacy of a t;ist
Atlantic service between Britain and
Canada, has a significance not y< t fully
appreciated even by ihose who remember all the circumstances of Sir Wilfrid's former rejection ol a similar
The Conservative government of 1SHG,
led by Sir Charles Tupper. proposed to
Kubbidize such a service. They had in
fact almost concluded a contract for It,
when the general elections of that year
placed Sir Wilfid Laurier and his colleagues In power. Such a service was
in fact a logical forollary of the policy
of developing trade with Britain rather
than with the United States.
On the accession of the Liberals to
pow-er the contract with the Predion
company was cancelled, for no other
reason than that ii had been concluded
under the Conservative government.
For several years following alternative
schemes were attempted by Sir Richard
Cartwright and R. R. Dobell. As usual
they produced no results and were finally abandoned. Nothing more was heard
on the suject from the Canadian govern*
ment until at the closing session ol ihe
Imperial Conference, Sir Wilfrid startled
the Conference, his colleagues, and the
country by making an impassioned ap*
peal on behalf of what seemed for tin.'
moment to be the one cherished object
of his career. The name "All Red" has
of course been borrowed from the
epithet popularly given to the British
Pacific cable project Initiated by Sir
Sandford Fleming and successfully carried out.
It is perfectly ODVloUi that Sir Wilfrid's motion was not decided upon
when he nnd his colh-agucs left Ottawa
to attend the conference. There whb
much  unfavorable  comment and  many
expressions of regret both In Canada
and Britain at the failure of the Dominion government to suggest a single subject for discussion at the conference.
It i's inconceivable that tbe premier
would have concealed his Intention of
advocating a scheme ao likely t�� ��o��*. ��� ������_
with popular approval as the All-Ked
Route, had he had any such Intention
beforehand. Further, his advocacy of it
without notice to the conference or to
the Dominion parliament was Inconsistent with every contention he had previously made. Although the delegates
from other colonies had made no secret
of the matters they proposed to discuss,
Sir Wilfrid taking his cue from tho
British Liberal ministers, had steadily
affected to treat all proposals as new
matter to which he could not commit
Canada even by way of expression of
opinion. In spite of that contention he
finally launched his own motion, when
It was too late to receive anything like
adequate discussion. and absolutely
without   notice  to  anyone  concerned.
Such inconsistency is only possible to
a man who is capable of accepting a
Cobden medal for unalterable devotion
to the principles of free trade, and at
the same time posing as the champion
of inter! m lie rial   preferential  tariffs.
Sir Wilfrid may plead sucessfully that
both parties in Canada have at different
times expressed approval of the general principle of a fast Atlantic service.
That will not explain his silence till tho
eleventh hour of the conference nor hla
subsequent enthusiasm for a scheme ho
once rejected, as if It were a new idea
originated  by himself.
Neither is there any comparison between the scheme rejected In 1S9G and
the one now proposed. In the first
place the cost of establishing such a
service now will be at least three times
as great as it would have been ten
years ago, and probably far more. It
Is, besides, extremely doubtful whether
the engagements entered Into in tlie Interval between the British government
and other Atlantic steamship companies
do not preclude the giving of assistance to a competing line. And,even worse,
ihouuh there Is a comic element In It,
the British Free Traders are In a militant mood and condemn the subsidizing
of steamship services as an indirect
form of preference and therefore a violation of the sacrosanct principles of
Free Trade. That condemnation has
been expressed, by a comic coincidence,
by  the secretary  of the  Cobden  Club,
Halifax, July h.���The Intercolonial
has finally determined to fight the striking checkers aud porters at the Halifax
terminal. As an indication of this they
have inserted large advertisements in
the papers calling for fifty men and offering permanent employment and good
wages to competent men.
The only way that merchants got perishable goods was by taking it from the
freight sheds themselves.
The business men of Halifax have
taken up the strike, and at a meeting
of the board of trade this afternoon they
adopted resolutions asking the government to give In to the strikers. They
fear that the trouble will spread to
oihar unions, and tha.t the ^fr^oi.. -~"��
be permanently t>ad. The men ask 1 < s~>
cents an hour.
In response to the advertisement for
new men to take the striker's places
only one applicant was received today.
Tho resolution adopted by the board of
trade and signed by the president is as
"That the schedule of rates as submitted by the freight handle's' union of
the Intercolonial, Halifax, he Immediately acceded to temporarily, up and until such time as the provisions of the
Industrial Disputes Act can be fnvoked,
a decision arrived at by the board of
conciliation appointed under the provisions of the said Act. Trade paralysed
by the strike. Immediate action necessary.   Answer."
A number of men who came to the
city today, when they found they were
wanted to fill the places of strikers, refused to go to work.

When, therefore, an Industry has
reached this stage of development, society loses the benefits of free competition. At this stage it is, iu (he opinion
of the Australian -Labor party, desirable
that the industry should be nationalized,
I. e., owned and controlled by the nation
in the interests of tho whole pSOpStt,
However men may dltter as to the expediency of state control of Industries,
it has to be admitted that if nationalization is to take phme at all It should be
at this stage. There is nothing vague
or indefinite about this policy: If it Tails
short of the glories of that which with
the eyes of faith the enthusiast sees,
and often raves of, then- are in it some
very real advantages by way of compensations. For one thing it Ik feasible.
and for another it lies to hand. We
may make a beginning at once. In Australia we propose to begin by nationalizing the tobacco industry." The position
of the party towaids land monoply and
old-iLge pensions is thus described: "We
say in effect to the land-owner: You
have the land: use it. If you do not
care to use it yourself let someone else
do so. Hut to keep it nut of use is a
crime to society, and we shall by making you pay this tax render It unprofitable for you to pursue this dog-in-the
manger policy. To these planks must
be added that dealing with old-age pensions���in force in two states at present
���and the cessation of public borrowing���the commonwealth has not borrowed one penny piece since its inception, which constitutes, I think, a record, and Is at once a tribute to the Labor party, and a crushing and complete
rejoinder to those who misrepresent
them and libel the country." Generally Mr. Hughes describes the platform
of the Labor party as the maintenance
of a White Australia, the nationalization of monoplies, and a graduated land
tax to burst up big estates.

Phase  of  Road  Building.
For several days past the inhabitants
of Keremeos have heard the whistle of
the V. V. & K. construction engine at
all hours of the day. On Tuesday they
had laid the track over the greater part
of Mrs. Lowe's ranch, and had just the
length of Mrs. Daly's ranch to go and
a portion of the Keremoes Land company's to do before reaching the yards
at Keremeos.
Thus, allowing for all reasonable delays aud a rate of progress less than
they have maintained since crossing the
bridge, the track should easily reach
Keremeos yards tonight.
Concerning the intentions after that
there are contradictory reports, but the
concensus of opinion is that grading op-
.'rations will be resumed as soon as contractors' outfits can be transported by
rail to Keremeos. It is expected that
the same sub-contractors who did the
work between Midway and Molson, and
who hav,. i..., n working for the past
year at Culdesac, laaiio, -��*��\ ���hamo the
work north of Keremeos. Most of these
will complete their present contracts in
Idaho about the middle of July. A few
weeks ago It was stated in Greenwood,
on seemingly good authority, that the
contract from Keremeos to Hedley and
Princeton had been re-let to J. W. Stewart & Co.
Another rumor is afoot in the boundary that the Midway-Greenwood
branch Is to be commenced forthwith.
What effect that may have upon grading up here remains to be seen.���Hedley Gazette, July 4th.

In connection with the published reports of the result of the library contest Rev. F. H. Graham desires it to be
stated that, while the Churchmen's Club

must have been from 25.000 to 50,000
more given by friends and well wishers,
of which he has not direct knowledge.
What to Do With Peaches.
The fruit growers of Nelson district
have a problem to solve. Every spring
their peach trees are so heavily laden
that one half of the crop has to be
sacrificed lo save the trees and the
other half. The unripe peaches so removed for that purpose are sound and
Without blemish. They would do admirably for pickling. Will some reader of
The Daily Canadian forward for the
general good a recipe for pickling
peaches ?

Thaw Breaking Down.
New York. July 8��� Harry K. Thaw is
dangerously ill ;ind fighting death in his
cell at the Tombs. His physicians fear
he is on the verge of a complete mental
collapse. Application was made to the
supreme court to fix bail for Thaw on
the grounds that his life is endangered
if he remains in the Tombs. The possibility that Thaw will become hopelessly Insane as a result of his confinement
was admitted by a representative of the
district attorney's office and by the law-
yern tor t\����s <i. t'.���,,��....      "ic i OVw  mj Dlood
will be on the head of the district attorney," said Thaw to Attorney Dan
O'Reilly. The year is prison for the
killing of Stanford White has made a
different man of Thaw, both in appearance and in spirit. The prisoner's
eheeks are sunken, his skin, always
dark, has an unhealthy tinge; his prominent eyes are almost out of their sockets and even the guards are shocked
at his appearance.

Sir Wilfrid Tells Paris That Canada Is
London, July 8.���Sir Wilfrid Laurler,
Interviewed by the Le Journal of Paris
on the subject of the improved relations
between France and Kngland, said: "I
should like to Bee you protect your own
language against Invasion of terms that
are not really wanted. If you have
come to interview tne, why do you not
say that you have had an Interview
with me?"
In conclusion, Sir Wilfrid pointed out
that when terms between France and
Canada had been arranged, the obtaining or the IlrlilBh government's signature would be a formal matter. "England, whose loyal subjects' we are, considers us sons who have been given
their independence, and grant* us its
signature witfeiut any difficulty, leaving
to us every latitude In discussing our
own Interests, and it is surely to our
Interest, as It Is to yourB, to strengthen
the bonds which unite Canada and
"The commercial treaty that we desire will, In short, unite two near relations, mother autl daughter," suggsteil
the Interviewer, but Sir Wilfrid was not
