Vienna. Aug. 17.���Vienna is preparing for the customary celebrations tomorrow In honor of lhe seventy-seventh birthday of Kmperor Francis
Joseph    Tb.*   venerable   iiiuaKu has
passed the groatei part of Ihe summer
at Ischl, which for yearn has been his
favorite retr.ai Much of his time is
spent in bunting That the aged monarch should be able still to undertake
so arduous a form of sport, and above
all keenly to enjoy it for days at a
time, speaks volumes for the marvelous manner in which he has retained
at nearly four score the vigor and elasticity of youth.
Kmperor Francis Joseph of Aulrla*
Hungary waa born August IS. 1N*!0. He
Is the longest reigning monarch of the
world, having succeeded to the throne
In 1S49. at the age of IS. He came to
the throne through the abdication of his
uncle, Ferdinand 1., iu the midst of a
revolution that threatened the foundation of the monarchy. On coming into
power Francis JoBeph promulgated a
new constitution, but the course of
events caused blni later to return to
a reactionary policy and Tor many years
he ruled a despotic monarch. His has
been a troublous reign. In addition to
a Berioiw rebellion tn Hungary he has.
In his long career, been obliged to engage in war with France, ltuly arid
PruHsla, In which his country has suffered the loss of much territory. It has
been said that the venerable emperor

Stuttgart. Aug. 17.���The Socialistic
notahleH of the world are gnthering here
lu large numbers to attend the International Socialistic Congress, which la
to hold Its sessions dining the next
eight days. A remarkable feature of
the gathering Is lhe large number of
women delegates. So numerous nre the
women. In fact, thai they have concluded to hold a separate conference. This
will be the first International Socialist
congress held by women.
, Among the questions to be dlacus-
sed by the generul conference are the
emigration of workingmen, militarism
and war. The subjects to which the
women will give eBpeetal attention include tlie establishment of regular communications between the organised women comrades of tbe vurlous countries
and ihe question of woman suffrage.
Tbe latter will be moved slrougly by
the delegates from the United Slatea.

Conservative Leader Will
Define Position
P. L. Borden Will Appeal to Canada
on Platform of Election Reform
and National Progress*
Ottawa, Auk. 17.���The oppoHttlon
Uiuder has H-ft for .Nova Scotia where
ou the 20th instant he will address the
firm of a werles of meetlnge to he held
during Auguat, September and O cto-
her In all the provinces of the Dominion, in this compreheuHlve tour Mr.
Hurden will not only diHcusa and
rriiize the policy and administration of
the Laurier government but will Bet
forth, explain ami defend hU own programme and thai of his party. During
the last two ni'ssmns the opposition
leader has in speeches in parliament
and In resolutions, supported by the
ConKervative party In the House, de-
rlared his jiolicy un many important
questions. It may be expected that iu
the important series of meetings now to
lie hfld these propositions will be reaffirmed, and Mr. Borden will take occasion to declare his policy on the
other questions which may be before
the people In the next Federal election.
Mr. Borden has already taken strong
ground In favor of reform In election
methods and of greater promptness in
the trial of election petitions. He ls
agalust the law's delays In these cases
and opposed to the saw-offs. He showed last session his determination to do
all that was possible for the purification of politics, no matter what party
might suffer In the process. Political
graft or all kinds finds in Mr. Borden
an enemy to be reckoned with as hae
been already demonstrated In many
cases The opposition under his lead
erBhip has done its best to prevent, expose and punish the plunder of the public
domain in the West. It has stood up
for the settler against the political land
speculator, and against the traders in
grazing h-anee in timber limits and land
concessions. No doubt Mr. Borden will
have something to say on these subjects
At this stage of affairs audiences east
and west will be glad to hear what Mr
Borden has to say for himself and his
party on questions of transportation
and the development of national water
ways and seaports. Farmers desire to
know whether he and his party have
any message for them In respect tc
more efficient transportation for their
products. Those who have heen diligent students of political history during
the last few years do not need to be
told that Mr. Borden has not hesitated
to express his views on these issues.
He has also dealt with the subject of
federal aggression on the provinces, on
the degradation and partisanship of the
civil service, and on tnoBt other subjects concerning which he would be ex
pected as a political leader to declare
his views.
The forthcoming series of meetings
���will enable the opposition leader to
bring together these declarations and
present them In a form where they can
be taken as a whole. He will be abb-
to take up any questions on which the
public may desire a clear statement of
the opposition policy, What has been
known to those only who have mado
a careful study of political questions
will thus be shown to the people at
large, as Mr. Borden meets them face
to face. Whether they like Mb views
or not, they will know that they have
have before them a sincere and conscientious statesman, who says the
thing he believes and who will do the
thing that he Bays. The Conservative
learer does not have a different policy
for each province. He will proclaim
the -same doctrine east and weet���to
farmers, to manufacturers and traders.
Another Success.
The .Juvenile Bostonlans scored another success at the opera house last
evening. The performance comprised
a number of vaudeville acts, and members of the company were afforded an
portunlty of displaying their special
talents. It will probably be the verdict
of every person present at the opera
house last evening that tho performance as a whole was one of the most
enjoyable presented to a Nelson audience.    There  was not a dull  moment
from start to finish. It would be doing
the whole company an Injustice to place
one number ahead of another, but a
special word of praise must be given
to that little mite, Halcyon Martin,
whose rendition of "What You Going
To Do When the Rent Comes Round"
was repeatedly encored. Babe Mason's
monologue, "The Editor," provoked
much laughter. The fact that every
number on the programme was encored
will give some idea of the manner In
which the entertainment was received.
"Tips" Is being given as a matinee this
afternoon, and tonight the engagement
will conclude with the ever delightful
opera "Olivette."
Granby Closed  Down.
(Special to The Dally Canadian.)
Grand Forks, Aug. 17.���Early
this morning all operations
at the Granby smelter were discontinued and not a hand ls turning at the hlg plant. Up till yesterday four furnaces were In blast
but the management has decided
to close down the entire plant.
The   direct  cause of  the   blowing
out of the smelter is a shortage
of cars and a scarcity of coke. It
Is also stated that the mines in
Phoenix camp will stop working.
The smelter may resume operations again tn a few days or it may
be some time.
Three Cases of Plague  Reported  From
San  Francisco���Measures to
Eradicate   Begun.
Washington, Aug. 17.���Bubonic plague
has broken out in San Francisco, and
already deaths have resulted from it.
The first intimation of the plague was
received Thursday from San Francisco
by the marine hospital service. The
tt Ugrain read: "Three cases and death,
plague,     San    Francisco. Diagnosis
made clinically and by stained smears
from spleen and glands. No reasonable
doubt as to certainty of diagnosis of
cases seen and verified by Long in con-
Junction with health officials. Caaee
were found within two blocks of old
Chinatown." On receipt of this information, Instructions were sent to Surgeon Austin to confer with the state
and local authorities and make a full
report on the measures adopted for the
eradication of the plague. Surgeon
Austin telegraphed that two cases had
been discovered, that the local board
had disinfected the building and proposed to Institute a campaign against
rats. He said that the deaths in the
city had been verified and that a general disinfection of suspected districts
would begin. He asked for the assistance of two officers as medical inspectors and one as a bacteriologist in the
state labatory.
Number of Immigrarrta  Into Canada in
Laat Fiacal Year���Big Gain at
Ocean Porta.
Ottawa. Aug. 17.���The yearly Immigration haa passed the quarter million
mark. In seven yearB lt has Increased
one thousand per cent. The total lm
migration to Canada for the twelve
months ending June 30th, 1907. reached
2G2.U38. For the twelve months ending
June 30th, 1906, II was 189,064, a gain
of 82.974, or 33 per cent. Via ocean
ports the number was 195,520 as
against 131.2CS for the previous year,
a gain of 64.232 or nearly 49 per cent.
From the United Slates the number was
56.518 as compared with 57,786 for the
previous year, a loss of 1,276, about 2
per cent. For April. Mny and June, the
first quarter of the present fiscal year,
the immigrat'on via ocean ports waa
106.512, compared with 73.431 last year,
an Increase of 32,081, about 40 per cent.
From the United StateB tt was 423 5'J.
compared with 45,604 during the corresponding period last year, a decrease
of 2.746. or 11 per cent. It will be seen
that although Immigration from the
neighboring country has decreased
slightly for the last two months yet the
increase through ocean ports ls so
great, the total figures being for April.
May and June 126,371. compared with
98.30*6, the total figures for the corresponding period lust year, that there is
still the substantial Increase of 29,336,
as much as the total annual Immigration of six years ago. The Increase ls
nearly 30 per cent. It may be added
lhat the Inspector of agencies working
lu the United States In the Interest of
Canada reported a widespread revival
of the disposition to move Canadawards,
so that it ls probable that the slight decrease In immigration for the United
States will be more than made up.
Want Tariff Treaty Wiih
Commonwealth Statesmen Sceptical
on All-Red Route���Expense too
Great for Advantages.
Toronto. Aug. 17.���A resolution has
been passed and will be forwarded by
the Canadian manufacturers soon to the
Dominion government recommending
that a preferential tariff treaty with
Australia should he entered into with
as little delay as possible. The resolution alao asks that Australia should
withhold her application of the new
tariff against Canadian goods already
in transit at the time the tariff was announced.
Dissatisfaction was expressed at the
method adopted by Canadian railways
of weighing cars. The preaent method
ls said to be inaccurate owing to the
hurried attention given and to the fact
that the car on the scales Ib affected
by other cars in the train of which it is
a part. To remedy this it was recommended thut government officers be appointed to look after the work. The
matter will be brought to the attention
of the commissioners.
It was decided to lend the influence
of the association to the movement commenced by the Commercial Travellers'
association to have Thanksgiving Day
on Monday.
*London. Aug. 17.���A Melbourne cor
respondent to the Guardian fears a long
time must elapse before the commonwealth parliament is Induced to look
with favor up an "all-red" mall service
by a Canadian route. Comparing the
new Suez contracts now about to be
made by the commonwealth with the
proposed "all-red" service, the correspondent says the "all-red" scheme is
hopelessly expensive.
Australians have had many years' experience of a Sydney-Vancouver mail
service. However profitable It may
have been to Canada that service has
from tile very beginning been a dead
loss to the commonwealth postoffice.
Australia's share of the Vancouver sub
sidy is about ��26,610 a year. She collects in postage annually leas than ��6,-
000. The fact ls Australia and Canada
are competitors In one another's markets, and cannot have close commercial
lies. The hope of Australian people is
for tiiemselves to make every' pound's
worth ot machinery that Canada dumps
on their shores, and Canada haB little
need of anything that this country can
send. The correspondent concludes the
letter by saying that the Australians
have Instinctively a love of artificially
created Industries, but this "all-red'
mall scheme Is too strong for the palate
of even an Australian.
Delegates   in   Session  at   Fort  William
Discus* Organization.
Port William, Aug. 17.���The Besslon
of the Union of Canudlan Municipalities
was brief, as the executive sat long.
Sunday cars In Port Arthur; Montreal Light Heut & Power Co., and municipal franchise In St. Louis and other
matters occupied all the time.
L. A. Lapointe, vice-president, seconded hy J. P. G. Dernub. moved: "That
this Union of Canadian Muulclpalltk-s
thinks It is highly desirable to petition
the Dominion and provincial governments, requesting their respective legislatures to adopt and enforce an act by
which the price of heat and power maybe regulated and the quality of the service given to the public, and that the
government of the province of Quebec
be specially requested to apply this
principle to the city of Montreal, and
the cities, towns and villages and other
municipalities surrounding them."
Vice-President Lapointe, Montreal;
Mayor Scott, Ottawa; Mayor Couslu-
eau, St. Laurent; Mayor .lull, of London, and others discussed the question
of regulating gas and electric light
Mayor Couslneau wanted the municipalities to regulate prices In their
limits, but Mayor Scott pointed out thnt
such a principle might be abused, and
suggested a Dominion commission as
in  the case of railway   transportation.
Editor Bragg of St. Lambert urged the
appointment by the local government of
an export to adjust the rates.
Mr. McAra suggested referring the
resolution to Alderman Lapointe back
to the committee. The resolution carried.
The appointment of delegates to the
Norfolk meeting of the National Municipal league In November was left to
tbe executive. President Coataworth
and Vice-President Lapointe were appointed to attend the League of American Municipalities at Jamestown, Sept.
18 to 20.
At the executive meeting the lack of
a provincial union in Quebec was made
-^minent by a grievance of the town
'"o^.T'��uis, where, according to Mayor
Gt. ^o/^rincises have been given
away . ' /^/fe municipal contracts
awarded > ��rari,tae consent of property owners.
R.   C.   Cochrane, -chard,     Man.,
pointed out that this .. .he opportunity for organizing Quebec's provincial
union, showing that in leaving such Important work for them their strength
would be developed.
-Roughing It."
SandUBky, Ohio, Aug. 17.���John Wor-
den, of London, England, a grand opera
baritone, "roughin it" as a deckhand on
tne steamer John Harper , in port here,
fell through a hatchery into the hold
this morning, struck on his head and
was instantly killed.

the ceremonies there Prince William is

Industry Seriously Affe-'irl by Plana of
Smelters���Quotations en Stock
The outstanding features of the mining situation at the close of the week
are the closing down of the Granby
Bmelter and the preparations for stocktaking at the Hall Mines smelter. Aa
usual a variety ol causes are at work.
Copper and lead have declined slightly.
coke ls scarce and the supply irregular
and cars fo. shipment not to plentiful.
A closing down of the smelters, if at
all protracted, will certainly maaa cassation of work in the mines.
The stock marke for the past week
has been weak, and inactive, this condition being due to the lact of communication In consequence of the telegraphers* strike, which necessitates
trades on all exchanges being purely
Alberta Coal & Coke sold off slightly
on the asked price, but the bid remained firm, with a large number of sales
recorded. Consolidated       Smelters
strengthened slightly at the opening,
but sold off again with offerings at
$115.0(1. with but few sales. Canadian
Gold Fields Syndicate, in sympathy
with the Consolidated Smelters, alao
weakened with but little business offered. Cariboo-McKlnncy continued weak
with no interest manifested. Diamond
Vale Coal was in more demand than for
several months, and advanced from 2
cents to 3 cents per share, with large
buying orders. International Coal was
almost unchanged, Bales being recorded
at about 91 cents. Galbratth Coal was
perhaps the feature of the week's tradings, all offerings at 27 cents being
quickly taken. Rambler Cariboo sold
as low as 23<*>i cents, but advanced on
yesterday's market, 27 cents being bid.
Sullivan weakened throughout with almost no business being recorded. Tel-
Kwa Mines cause several inquiries, but
at prices too low to have business result. Western Oil Consolidated sold off
from 15 cents to 20 cents per share,
offerings being noticed at $1.65. Quotations from B. C, Dominion, and Granby,
from the New York curb were not received since the beginning of the week.

Edward Blake Gomes
Home an Invalid
Greatest of Canadian Liberals Has
Left Political Arena To Recover
Montreal, Aug. 17.���Hon. Edward
Blake has returned to Canada, not in
the fullness of his vigor and activity,
but as an invalid who cannot move
without assistance. A newspaper representative was admitted to the car
and was received by Samuel Blake, son
of the dlstingnised statesman. Hon.
Edward Blake was reclining but Samuel
Blake said his father had stood the voyage extremely well though the rail
journey from Quebec had been somewhat fatiguing. So far as the ocean
voyage is concerned Mr. Blake enjoyed
it extremely and was frequently carried
to the deck where he took evident interest watching the pastimes of the passengers and discussing the ordinary
events of life on ship hoard.
"Mentally my father Is as vigorous
as ever," aaid Samuel Blake. "Although
of course he cannot walk without assistance, the paralytic stroke having
taken away the use of his left Bide almost entirely. Doctors say, however,
that the effects of the seizure will pass
away gradually, although, of course, lt
will take some time to complete his restoration to physical activity."
Edward Blake has come back to Canada to live and will take np his residence in Toronto. It la possible he may
make an occasional visit to England
bnt his home in future will be here.
Mr. Blake added that his father had
freed his mind of all' political responsibilities and his main object now is to
take complete rest in the hope that the
change of air and environment would
resott in speedy recovery. Mr. Blake
is still a member of the house of commons.

Saturday,   August   17,   1907.
From every part of Canada, especially
of course from the west, reports come
steadily of growth and progress, Everywhere more land is being brought under cultivation, new Industries arc being established, old ones enlarged, production is increased, centres uf population are growing rapidly and developing new ueeiis which in turn stimulate
new industries. As these are the conditions generally considered desirable,
it might naturally be expected that
everyone would be pleased and full of
confidence, and any ills in the body
politic would be Forgotten for a time
People who are making money very fast
are   rarely  critical.
But this period or material development, the most amazingly rapid in the
history of Canada, is accompanied by
several disquieting phenomena, which
are not only not reassuring for the
future,but even at the present tend to
make the lot of the earners of wages
or small salaries harder than they arc
In what are called hard times. A vie
lous circle seems to have been created
The manufacturers and employers nre
producing more but the cost of labor.
material and equipment have Increased
enormously, expense of transportation
has not diminished, and there is a general complaint that profits are reduced
almost to the vanishing point. At the
same time the laborers, although their
wages have been raised repeatedly protest that the cost of the necessaries of
life have increased at an even faster
rate and that their condition is no
better but rather worse than before
the beginning of the period of expansion. At the same time a scarcity of
labor Is experienced in nearly every industry. Even at the high wages paid
^the supply is unequal to tlie demand.
and in consequence industries are crip
pled and production prevented from Increasing as fast as it might.. The laboring class looks with suspicion on any
attempt tu meet the deficiency. They
fear, not unreasonably, that any considerable intlux of labor, by altering the
present relations between supply and
demand, would lead to a decrease of
their wages without any corresponding
decrease in the cost of living. The situation may be briefly expressed thus:
employers justify the high prices of
their products by the high wages they
have to pay, and the employees justify
the high wages they demand by the
high prices they have to pay for food
and clothing.
li may be seen readily that the purchasing power of any given sum of
money has materially declined. It re-
quiies more money now than formerly
to meet the requirements ol ordinary
commerce, and we have the phenomenon of an almost unexampled scarcity
of ready money at a time when the national revenue is greater than ever before, and the product uf the nation's industries at top figures and tup prices.
The banks of the country with one accord are refusing tu advance money for
new enterprises. They declare that all
the money now available In the country-
is required for financing of legitimate
enterprises ut ready established. So,
while normal values are high, Ofedit
has declined and the country although
ringing with reports of prosperity and
progress, is experiencing a period of financial stringency as severe as any that
have accompanied or followed periods
of   panic   and   depression.
In the United .States the secretary of
the treasury is making extraordinary
provision for affording financial assistance to the farmers of the west to enable them to move their crops, ft is
uncertain yet whether the farmers of
the Canadian west will need such assistance or not, but there seems to be
no machinery in Canada by which it can
be extended even if required.
There Is no apparent remedy. The
laborers are masters of the situation
on the one hand and will not tolerate
any extraordinary measures to Increase
the supply from any quarter. On the
other hand the people who have property and would engage in a new Industries or expand their own, cannot secure advances for that purpose. The
managers of the hanks have constituted
themselves  the  judges of  what enter-
The provincial department of education has beeu forced by the dearth of
teachers in the province to take the
extraordinary step of throwing down
the barriers so elaborately created and
carefully guarded, and inviting qualified
teachers from other provinces to enter
without other test than the presentation of their certificates. Only necessity could justify such a course. The
teachers who hold certificates from the
British Columbia department have passed through a severe ordeal. Their
curricula ure exacting and examinations
sometimes vexatious. The chief inducement to do so has been the fact
that having complied with all requirements they were hedged in from outside
competition, in a province where teachers' salaries are higher than elsewhere
in Canada.. Moreover, it has been the
steady policy of our education department, under successive heads, to Ignore
certificates  won in other provinces.
A few years ago such au invitation
would probably have met with an instant response. But now, conditions
and cost of living iu British Calumbia
are better known, and salaries in the
east, except in Quebec, have been substantially advanced. It is not likely that
there will be any great influx of Eastern
teachers to supply British Columbia's
The reasons for the scarcity of teachers are not far to seek. The economic
reason comes first. As compared with
other occupations the monetary rewards
are outrageously disproportionate to
the learning and ability required. But
there are other factors. In a few
places, notably in Nelson, teachers are
t.eated with cunsideration by their
trustees and with respect by the public,
lt is not so everywhere. None others
are reminded so ulten as teachers, especially iu rural districts, that they are
public servants. Every one is the teacher's critic, from the inspector to the
most ignorant parent of the district. At
the time of the publication of the last
annual report un the public schools we
drew atteution to the character of the
criticisms published by some of the inspectors aud predicted that they would
not tend to make the profession popular. The prediction has found early fulfil meut.

Tomorrow will be the twelfth Sunday

the feast of St. Llartholomew, apostle
and martyr, associated for ever with
the massacre of the Hugenots in France
in 1572 by the partizana of the House
of Guise.
The gospel for the day Ib the account of Christ's giving speech and
hearing to the deaf mute at Decapolls.
In all the waaiderings, not only of
Christ Himself, but of his apostles after
ths UC0Df|OD, it Is.recorded that everywhere miracles or ht-allng wero expected hy the people. Apart from the fact
thai there was little of either medical
or surgical science In those days, ability to cure and heal was everywhere
considered an attribute and a proof of
Dlviui* power.
Christ's parting injunction to all who
saw to be silent on the subject is attributable to Ills purpose not to convince the world of his Godhead by displays of pOWM but by the purity of Ills
life and teachings.

Victoria, Aug. 17.���For the distinguished s��*ivii'"s rendered by her father
to the Province of Uritlsh Columbia,
then a crown colony, a gratuity of |B0
a month for life has been granted to Miss
Harriet Kraser, daughter of Simon Fra-
Ker, partner iu the Northwest company,
who, though not the ttrst to visit the
Fraser river was the first to explore it
thoroughly���and to distinguish between
it and tho Columbia, whoso name in con-
MQH-MlC-0 it bears.
Miss Harriet Fraser, now a woman of
eighty years Is at present living in To-
lunto. The rreognltlon of thu -services
of the great explorer in this gratuity to
hi daughter will do something to atone
for the disparagement his life work
and character have received at the
hands of some historians.
Simon Fraser was born In
I - i iniiiKton on Ili'-If udsim, of
tlsh United Kmpire Loyalist,
ther, a Captain Fraser, died In prison
after he had been captured by the
Americans at Burgoyne'e surrender. In
hiu Infancy he woe taken hy his widowed mother to Upper Canada In tbe
vicinity of Cornwall, where he grew up.
In 17M he Joined as clerk the ranks of
the Northwest company, the great rival
of the Hudson's Hay company and passed all his active life In Its service. He
retired from its service about the time
of Its coalition with its great rival in
1X21, and about the same year he married the daughter of Capt. Allan McDonnell, of M.nilda, Ontario. He died
In 1SG2 at the sgsj uf 86 at St. Andrew's
in the township of Cornwall, county
of Stormont, where tbe recipient of the
gratuity of the local government was

Fraser was the founder of New Caledonia, the explorer of the main fluvial
artery of Brltlnh Columbia and one of
the first residents of thfg prdvlnce. His
BervlceH entitle him to the respect of
every Canadian as hlHtorlans have remarked.
Simon fraser, at the age of twenty-
Six wus made a partner In the company
and lifter a first appointment at Grand
Portage he was sent to Lake Athabasca,
lie was later chosen as the man best
flitted to extend the company's activities west of the Ilocky mountains and
was sent to what Is now the Province
of British Columbia in 1805.
On MeLeod Lake on a peninsula
formed by Its juncture with Long Lake
river, he founded the first permanent
post ever erected within what Is now
Hritlsh Columbia. It exists to this day.
The following year conflicting reports
with regard to the rivers of the neighborhood received from the Indians began to prey on Fraser's mind. In May,
1800 he began his journey of exploration. SeeMDp the Fraser by way of the
Parsnip and J*"*] rivers, the itinerary of
Mackenzie lo 1793, he arrived at the
juncture of that river aijd theNcchaco
on June 11. The same year the second
fort established west of the Rockies wan
louuded at the outlet of Stuart Lake,
the headquarters of the New Caledonia
district,  and  named  Fort George.
In the spring of 1808, Fraser with
four canoes started out on what was
still considered the maiu affluent of the
Columbia river. He had been much
disquieted by the fear that the Americans, Lewis And Claj-ke, would be before him in the diatrict uno, fteg-pe all
haste was made. Leaving Fort George
on May 26, they reached tbe mouth of
the river on July 1 eatabliahing that the
river was not the Columbia, but a separate and  distinct stream.
The descent of the river occupied
forty days, the ascent on the return
but 33 days. ���
As a reward for his services In 1811
he was promoted to the charge of the
whole Red river department. Due recognition of his services were offered
him in the shape of a klnghthood, which
howver, the .insufficiency of his means
prevented him ffOpi accepting.
In 1816 he was present at the battle
of Seven Oaks between the employees
of the Northwest company and those of
the Hudson's Bay company in which
Governor Semple lost his life. When
shortly afterwards Lord Selkirk took
Fort William the headquarters of the
Northwest company fraaer was captured and was one of tbe prisoners sent
to Montreal.
The Journal of Simon Fraser is one
of the most valuable records at the
command of historians In dealing: with
the early days of the province.
