Church   Congress   Discusses   Problems
Affecting  Political  and  Social
Relationships Existing.
Toronto, Oct. 25.���The News here
says questions affecting labor and its
social aud political relationships, perhaps, never were so keenly debuted in
Great Britain as now. With the defoal
of the Unionist party at the recent
elections the spirit of social and do
mettle reform has revived iu the old
country and Imperialism iu ho fur us
this represeuts foreign policy and
schemes of national extension and
conquest has been set iu the buck-
there are signs likewise of a struggle
gle on betweeu the orthodox Trades
Unionists und Uritish Socialists, aud
there ure signs likewise of a stru gle
between orthodox Liberals und the Labor element iu  the constituencies und
in parliament
Olher recent developments affecting
the social aud political relationships of
labor in the old country arise oul of
the ���conference' of the Amalgamated
Society of Railway Servants and Unchurch congress, liy l!7 votes to lithe conference decided thai all parlia
mentaiy* candidates sigu and accept
lhe conditions of tlie Labor party, and
bo  suhjeel   to   its   whip.
The claims and Ihi* position of labor,
the poor uud the unemployed worn
keenly ami fully debated ul tho church
congress. Nothing could better illustrate the uow spirit which has entered
British polities than this extraordinary
���concentration of attention on social
and domestic Questions. Equally re
niiirhahle wore the utterances of cer
tain   delegates   to  the   congress.      Tho
dean of i.iy declared himself to be u
Socialist iu the sense in which ('buries
Kingsley, Maurice and Bishop Wosloott
were Socialists, He did not believe
that society existed for the sake of
private properly, bui that private property existed for ihe sake of society.
If we were all (Mirlstians today wo
might safely bo all Socialists tomorrow. The time might come when, Instead  of capital   hiring    labor,    labor
might be hiring capital, _tut there could
be no such Change of national condition which was not founded upon
Change nf character, because true Hfo
worked frnm within outwards. Mr.
Siimmerholl, M. I'., announced that bo
was a churchmun nud n Socialist, nnd
said that Socialism was never moro
healthy, and its outlook never more
encouraging than at present, A large
number of the clergy of the church of
England hnd Openly nnd boldly declared Iheir belief in Soclulism and
lhe practicability of its realization,
nnd the people wore being converted

Remains Are Identified
Reverently Buried
Dies Alone in Wilds of Yukon���Bones
Found After Years of Search
by Affectionate Brother.
With a pari of the skull, a rib, a
piece of .ae collarbone, a portion of
the femur und hits of clothing by
which the Identification was made
possible, Professor Hewitt returned to
Duwsou on the C. fl llumilton with
ali lhat remains of his Bister, Dr.
Edith Chambers, for whose body he
has been unremittent in the search of
for the |iast two years, says the Yukon
World. The discovery ot these tew
hones and the iwsltlve knowledge of
the fate that overtook Mrs. Chambers,
sets at rest the mystery concerning
her disappearance and rings lhe final
curtain un a tragedy thnt, for gruesome details, has seldom. If ever, been
surpassed in the North.
For many, Alaska and the Yukon
are associated with bitter remlnls-
ceuces und dlsappqjnted hopes and
Professor Hewitt ls ono of them. The
North has not only robbed him of a
sister, but he has been compelled to
witness the mute evidence of her sufferings, to realize her body has been
devoured by ravenous wolves and ls
denied the privilege of according the

such as will be given the handful of

of the fate of his siBter. His was a
labor of love, and when the ghastly
relics now iu his possession are interred in Seattle and a headstone

Which was beyond human agency.
Dr. Edith Chambers was a native of
Wisconsin, a graduate dental surgeon
who came lo the Yukon in 1900 to
practice her profession. Owing to being an American and the difficulty of
securing n license, she soon abandoned
all ideas of opening up an office and
eutfcred the employ of the Lndue company, remaining in that position for
some months.
Within a comparatively short time
the prosaic life became Irksome, and
being of an adventurous disposition,
fond of adventure uud travel and of
literary taste--;, having been n frequent
contributor the various mngnzine-H and
periodicals she arranged to make a
trip through a little known section of
the territory- gathering material for a
h::ok that was to be published upon
her  return  to lho outside.
The Itinerary decided upon was one
that would have appalled many an old
prospector, und her friends did their
be-st to persiiude her not to ut tempt
it, bui she was absolutely fearless,
handy in maWnS a camp and caring
for h'Tself under ordinary circum-
stanc s. ami mi .Inly 24. 190J., she loft
for l-'ortymlle on the trip from which
she was never to reluru.
Arriving at Fortymile she secured a
pacic animal, loaded it with   n   camp
outfit aud a couple of hundred pounds
of provisions and set oul entirely alone
for llie headwaters of the Fortymile,
Intending to eioss to some of lhe tributaries of the Tannnu, build n raft aud
float down that stream to the Yukon,
returning from the lower rlvor by
Steamer the same fall, mid proceed to
the outside al once.
From the time she passed the mining camps on tbe Upper Fortymile,
Mrs. Chambers was never Sf-on again,
and her travels, hardships, sufferings
nnd ultimate fate are only known
through various h tiers she wrote and
a dlnry that was kept and which wero
found by lhe merest, accident some
years after her death.
Nothing further was learned of Ihe
fate of Mrs. Chambers until hor letters and diary were discovered three
y ars ago by Sorgenut Meyers of the
United States signal corps. Thoy de-
finrlh ��� her w.nderlngs and 'howed
whore her remtins would probably he
found, but none of the Alaskan authorities had the humanity to make
an investigation, contenting themselves with mnking a memorandum of
tbo discovery and forwarding tho letters to the nddress given, which wus
the first tntlmntlon Professor Hewitt
had of the death of his sister, three
years  nfter  her  disappearance.
"Where the remains wore found."
soya Professor Hewitt, "Is nt a point
about 85 miles up the Goodpaster,
which I easily located from the directions given In my sister's letters. It
was a beautiful spot, lying high on a
high-cut bunk of the river, with huge
trees growing all about and an abundance or tht; greenest verdue, an ideal
place tor a camp."
Eldest    Living    Heir    of   Archdeacon
Comes to His Own.
Calgary, Oct. 25.���W. H. Mannix of
Okotoks, It is understood, will shortly
receive the first money coining due
him from a legacy left him by his late
uncle, Archdeacon McCarthy of Cork,
Ireland. Mr. Mannix wus calling on
friends iu the city on Friday last and
revealed the good news to them that
he thoughl the entire value of the estate left him would amount to over
$100,000, hut tbat he expected to derive his first-revenue from it not later
than yesterday, the exact amounl of
which he did not state.*" Mr. Mannix
was residing at Okotoks two years ago
when his uncle died, but be had no
anticipations that he would fall in for
any part of tbe estate.
He later became aware of the fact
through correspondence, however,
that he was the oldest living relative
of the deceased und last spring he paid
a visit to Cork.
There legal complications arose In
connection with the distribution of
lhe estate through It being contested
by several relatives. He, however,
was the legal heir, the court decided,
aud ho relurned to this country. Most
of his income from the estate at the
present time will come from rents.
Mr. Mannix's real name Is McCarthy, that being his father's name, but
he has gone under the name of Man
nix while in Ibis country. On Saturday last he removed from Okotoks to
a point 25 miles west <_f Red Deer.

Kootena; Lumbermeo Get
Larger Profits
New and Improved Equipment of Big
Rills Enables Ihem to Prepare
Lumber For Builders.
The condltt-DB of tbe lumbering industry In Briti-h Columbia, esp-clally
perbaps in East Kootenay, have enabled the operators to make an important change in their methods, which
seem- like!)) to huve til* effact of
substantially Increasing their profits,
and, to a large extent, cutting down,
if not entirely abolishing, the profits
of the middlemen on the prairies, who
for the past few years have been making very large profits.
The change consists in concentrating
the business of the East Kootenay
comi>anies at large central plants,
which have been, and are still being,
greatly improved and developed. At
such plants the timber is dressed and
classified and is ready for gale to the
building trades direct Uutil this year
the dressing and classifying was done
by jobbers in Calgary and other prairie
centres, whose profits from the band-
ling of the lumber usually far eioeeded
those of the actual mill operators.
The change Involves a further movement which cannot fail ultimately to
be of general benefit to Kootenay lumbermen. Not every company bas the
necessary plant and equipment for
completing the work as deaeribed.
An informal system of cooperation
has been duveloped, the larger and
better equipped companies taking over
the lumber cut by the smelter oom*
The latter mentioned movement waa
really forced upon the larger companies by the difficulty of keeping pace
with their orders from the ever-growing market In the new provinces. IU
secondary advantages are really a byproduct.
A. Carney of Kaslo, provincial timber inspector for East Kootenay, is ln
the city today, having been summoned
as a witness ln the case of the Pernio
and other lumber companies against
the Crow's Nest Southern Railway
company and Its contractors.
Seen at thei Hume this morning Mr.
Carney said In response to the usual
"New mills have been built lu many
places, especially along the Kootenay
river and near Baynes lake. The otli-
tv mills are enlarging and Improving
their plants. I have seen most of the
changes and additions reported In The
"One new feature this year, however,
tbat I think has not boeu mentioned
before is the gradual consolidation of
business Into the hands of the bigger
companies, aud by them luto their bigger plants.
"They have taken a very Important
forward step. They are resawlng and
dressing the lumber, so that when it
t;oes to the market lt Is ready for the
builders. Tbat Js certain to cut out
tbe middlemen lu Calgary und elsewhere who have been making fortunes
out of the dressing and classifying of
British Columbia lumber.
"The demand from Alberta and Saskatchewan ls greater than ever, und
there is no sign of any chunge In that
respect. The demand is, iu fact, so
keen that the buyers are no longer
squirming ahout Hie prices. They
want thc lumber and must have lt at
any price.
"In their efforts to meet that demand
the big companies have been buying
up the season's cuts of the smaller
companies. Even with those at their
dlnisoHul they will probably not be
able to meet the demand.
"The growth of the Industry In the
last year and Its present prosperous
condition can hardly be exaggerated.
There are more mills, bigger nnd bettor mills, more lumber cut and better
prices fof it, and a larger share of the
profit coming to Kootenay.*'

Thc most respectable journals of
both political parties in the east are
now discussing wiih a seriousness that
is full of promise, methods of putting
a period io the scandalous circumstances connected with many election campaigns during recent years. There can
be no denying thc fact that lu spile of
the Impossibility of literally observing
election laws, the extremes to whicli
corrupt practices have been developed
have during recent years thrown discredit upon the party system in Canada. While we have been accustomed
to revile our neighbors to the south,
their unscrupulous methods have, little
by little, crept into our own practices
till we have not much left with which
to reproach them.
It fs refreshing, therfore. to lind Ihe
press, that most powerful of all mediums of reform, turning to the task of
arousing public sentiment against cor-
ruptlon in any form, and if this feature
of journalistic enterprise were entered
by all party and Independent organs
is would not be many months before
we should find a more healthful condition existing in the body politic.
It is worth while, however, to go
back a little way in the history of Canadian journalism and seek to discover some of the causes which have led
to the present lamentable conditions
existing in Canada. Not alone is the
degraded and corrupt agent of the machine responsible for the state of affairs, nor is tbe machine itself wholly
to blame. The press must be held accountable to a large extent for the low
moral sense thai pervades the popular
elements of Bociety. The methods of
political  warfare    engaged    In by the
partizan organs have been such as io
demoralize the high ideals of the people and the persistent policy of damning men iu public office on any and
all occasions is largely responsible for
a condition which it is now sought to
II has been the deplorable habit of
lhe [tarty press to hold up to ridicule
and scorn, public men and representatives of the people whether the occasion would warrant the attack or not.
The private walks and business career
of statesmen have been invaded for
tbe purpose of making political capital
against them whenever possible. Cases
that have been sub judlce have been so
minced and hashed by the press lhat
In many cases when a decision lias
Ik en rendered by tlie courts its force
and effects have heen completely nullified through the prejudice created in
ihe minds of the people by the columns
of speculation and iuuendo and reproach, on the one hand, or justification ami glorification on the other.
There can be no denial of the facts
as above set forth and that the Dominion Is today reaping the fruits of this
policy on the part of the press is evident upon .he surface of the case. No
sooner is a man attacked than the
whole coterie of partizan opponents
stand together to put the worst possible construction upon every circumstance In whicli suspicion attaches to
the accuesed, while on the other hand
every attempt is made by the opposite
coterie to shield the offenders.
While the safety of society is guaranteed by the freedom of the press and
on the whole a measure of security
has been reached by that liberty that
is commendable, there can be no disputing the fact that the liberty has
often degenerated Into license and, as
in al) cases, when this has taken place
society has been taxed to pay the cost.
In the province of Hritish Columbia
we have seen during the last three
years the most discreditable attempts
on the part of the opposition press to
stigmatize and defame the men who
have held important public trusts.
Rumors and canards have heen treated
with all the seriousness of sworn testimony and where these have not heen
forthcoming (he fecund Imaginations of
a hysterical press have sought refuge
In actual misrepresentation of the
characters aud deeds of public men.
It is true that we have not yet had
party government ln this province suf
ficiently long for the "reptile press,"
as it has been called, lo get in its full
work in the deceiving of the electorate
but the intention is there and unless a
halt Is called we shall have in British
Columbia just the same loss of moral
sense on the art of the people against
which the east i.s now crying out. The
same loss of confidence in public men
aud lhe same generally cynical altitude
toward all that makes for good citizenship and Inspires men to offer themselves on the altar of their country's
service will assuredly follow.
The convoking of llie Spanish cortes
with the resignation and reconstruction of the French cabinet, both of
which occurrences, having taken place
chiefly because of the necessity of settling the relations that are hereafter
to exist between the state and the
Roman Catholic church, have a worldwide interest. In the republic the battle has been long aud bitter but there
seems no disposition on the part of tho
new cabinet to retract from the advanced position taken by (he respective governments during the past few
It would be Impossible for Spain,
lying so near to the republic, though a
monarchy, not to catch something or
the spirit of the French reformers and
the cortes will have to face, seriously,
for the first time, the attitude that Is
to be maintained toward religious or
With the complete severance of
church and state in these two nations
ihe question of the civil supremacy of
the hierarchy will be practically settled for all Europe,
It is reported that his holiness is
not averse to a modus] vivendl and
while the lerms upon which he is Willing to arrange such are not fully stated in the despatches, it is evident
that his holiness is a diplomat and a
man of peace. The inevitable separation of church and state must take
place with tbe increase of the spirit
of democracy and there is apparently
uo good reason why It should not be so.
The Roman Catholic church Is nowhere more powerful ami influential
than In America where her authority
is not artificial but apostolic and where
her reliance Is placed, not In arlbtrary
conditions but on sane and proper relations to the state.
The battle has been one of centuries
but history teaches lhat the church
has gradually receded from untenable
positions and has been the better and
stronger for doing so. If France and
Spain can free themselves from the incubus of hierarchial control they will
make the same religious and material
advances that other republics have
done and the church will not suffer. It
would appear that Pope Plus understands this and is about to act accordingly.
The Winnipeg Telegram, speaking
of the peculiar judgment of the full
court of Saskatchewan in the case of
Sinclair,  the  ballot box stuffer, asks:
"Why bold an election at all? A
party In power has only to hire a thief
and perjurer to fill a ballot box and
make such false entries as are necessary for the purpose, and there is not
a seat in any legislature, Dominion or
provincial, that cannot be filched from
the electorate and handed over to tho
man with the power of appointment.
According to Mr. Justice Wetmore the
simple audacity of the outrage keeps
It within the law. What need then
for any controverted election act, or
for that matter, for any election act
at all. One perjured thug can thwart
the will of all the people of any constituency and elect at pleasure���and
without penalty���anyone who may be
chosen to fill lhe dishonorable billet.
To follow this to its logical conclusion,
a party in power, by adopting lhe
James Sinclair method, can always remain in power, and only a revolution
against the whole government can
have the happy result of returning
anyone in opposition."
The Twenty Thousand club have undertaken something heavy in the way
of responsibility Jn negotiating for the
services of the Rosclans to play under the auspices of the club. It Is not
so much the cost of the company as
lhe fitting up of the Agricultural hall
(hat demands the outlay but, having
undertaken it, the citizens will be
pleased at the pluck with which the
club Intends to see the venture
through. Though there Is much criticism of the club it Is calmly and vigorously pursuing Its publicity policy
and has done more than any other organization to make Nelson known to
the world at large. The entertainment
under their auspices next week, altogether apart from tho merit of the
performance demands thc heartiest
Support of the people.
A rural district not a thousand
miles from Winnipeg recently called
a conclave of its citizens aud passed
resolutions protesting against tho
practice of some of tho good people
of Winnipeg who Invade the quiet
Sabbath sanctity of tho suburb lo
practice shooting on Sunday. Among
those specified was his excellency
Earl Grey to whom copies of the res
olution are to be sent. The resolutions point out that wlille the inhabitants of St. Marks are truly loyal to
the king and to his representative
they think that the example sel Ity ibe
governor general was not such as (o
commend it to the Sabbath loving people of Canada. We wonder if the
Lord's Day Alliance branch at Nelson
would have had similar courage.

Winnipeg, Oct. 25.���Chief Justice
DubUO sat yesterday morning in ihe
court of king's bench and delivered
judgment in the crown case reserved
of the King vs. Duggan, returning officer for the Dominion constituency of
Selkirk, who was charged at the fall
assizes last October with tampering
with the voters' list, in which caso
Mr. Justice Perdue withdrew the case
from the jury and ordered a verdict
of uot guilty to be entered. Mr. Justice Richards and Mr, Justice I'hippen
delivered lengthy judgments overruling the decision of the trial judge and
ordering a new trial to be held.
The court held that the judge had
erred In withdrawing the case, and
that it was a proper case to go before
the jury for trial.
In consequence of this verdict Lawrence Duggan will again have to bo
tried on the original charges.

8trata  Yield Under Unequal  Preisure
Sai i to Affect Whole Earth.
Our globe is still perilously vital,
s-js Miss A. M. Gierke, the well-
siiosvn sd-ntlil- writer. lln actual
sliupu and 8i_t. re8U|t (rom tj,e UIlt_g.
oiilssic |,luy of bcut and gravity, Uie
-Lturbanc- of which is at auy tuo-
ui.'iit liable to produce a destructive
acwss of instability. Some such dls-
ttirnancu buj doubtless been tho uu-
-OHj/ing cause of the recent succession of seismic cutustrophes, the lat-
Mt, though peihups not lhe last, of
which took place at Valparaiso.
Kaiihiiuukes, il |S true ure in one
si-iiKis local phenomena, 'ihey ensue
Immediately from a yielding of Uie
strata under a strain or nuoiiual
preatun which lists been In course of
accumulation probably for many do-
cades. 'I'h us one part of the ui-eu will
he lightened by denudation, while another becomes loaded !>y deimslllon,
until ull at once the bearing strength
of the rocks underneath being over-
lax.d, a fracture ensues, and tho
world is shaken.
The equilibrium, however, is ou the
verge of Instability long before it ls
actually overthrown; the security of
the tbueatoueol district remains, unknown to tile Inhabitants, iwlBed ou a
knife-edge of opposing Influences, and
the Impending disaster may be accelerated by a full in the barometer, or
the minute relief of pressure due to
Ihe moon's passage through tlie nearest point of her orbit.
Evidence, morevoer, is accumiilaling
i hut earthquake production is promoted by some cause affecting tlie earth
as a whole. It is by no casual coin-
clsleuco that the Uharmsala earthquake, the earthquakes of San Francisco and Valparaiso, to say nothing
of the Vesuvlan outburst���undoubtedly a co-ordlnute manifestation���havo
followed close on each other's heels.
And wo know that the figure of the
terrestlal spheroid Is not strictly Invariable. If it were there could be no
"wandering of the pole."
Tho axis on whicli our planet spins
shifts Its position within it by describing a highly irregular little orbit, some
few yards In diameter, In a period of
about 4110 days. This Is both an effect and a cause. It is an effect, we
must siipiiose, of slight changes ln
the distribution of matter upon the
earth's surface; and it necessarily occasions, owing lo the forced alterations
of centrifugal speed accompanying lt,
certain Infinitesimal strains within Iho
terrestrial substance.
A maladjustment of figure and rotation Is continually arising in circumstances that vary incessantly. An exceptional stress so generated would be
quite likely to provide seismic and vol-
canic ii-rturbitions in widely separated regions. It would Just give the
decisive touch lo the Inclining balance;
it would add the last straw to the
barely supported burthen of tho
weighted strata.
Advances  Being  Made Today Just as
Actively as in the Past.
Quarter of a cenlnry ago there were
many makers of custom.made shoes in
the cities. Is there one known today
���really known?
Machinery, supplemented by method,
made belter shoes, finished lheni liet-
Ism-, and fashioned them right, so lhat
all men could get the style tbey wauled, the sl-e they wear, and llle width
that would fit.
A Bhoe In 11 width does not necessarily in,-an that Us wearer must buy
a suit of clothes of Semi-ready physique type n. Hut the physique lyi��e
system of tailoring, used only bo the
Semi-ready tailor shops, assures lhe

With this perfect system It Is possible
to mnke up, rendy to bo filled on and
finished in nn hour, a suit of clothes
from tho best and most expensive
cloths. It can never be dead slock.

Ancestor of Modern Labor Orlers Celebrates.
Milwaukee, Oct. 25.���Tho feast of St.
Crispin, which occurs today, Is an anniversary now forgotten by the shoo-
mnkers and most everyone else, though
thero was a time when the dny was
religiously observed in many parts of
this country. One of Iho pioneer labor
organisations of tho united states was
the Knights of St. Crispin, which was
eomposed of shoemakers. The movement wns started In Wisconsin just,40
yours ago and spread rapidly eastward.
Its alms were similar to thuse of lhe
labor orguiil-atlons of today, hut tho
principles iiihiii whicli It wns conduct
ed were different After flourishing a
few years the organization became defunct and is now scarcely remembered,
even by the oldest members of the
St. Crispin, in whose 1k.ih.i- tho organization was named, was a shoemaker preacher, a teacher of the
Clirlstiun religion in barbaric Gaul,
and he suffered a cruel martyrdom at
the hands of the heathen Roman Consul of Oaul, in 2S7. There Is a tradition that he preached by the duy and
made shoes by the night and gave
them to the poor, an angel supplying
hlm with leather.

Gunter's Fifty-Ninth Birthday.
Archibald Cluvering Guuter, the popular author and pluywright, was bom
in Liverpool, Eng., October, 25, 1847.
He came to America as a young man
und studied lu the School of Mines in
Sua Francisco. After his graduatlou
he was for a time a civil engineer for
the Central Pacific railroad and later
worked as a chemist in the California
assay office, lu 1875 he became a
stockbroker lu San Francisco and
three years later removed to New
York, In which city he hus since continued to make his home. The work
which made Mr. Gunter famous was
his novel, "Mr. Barnes of New York,"
which wus dramatized and has been
seen on the stage throughout America,
and In England and Australia. Others
of his books that are well known are
"Mr. Potter ot Texas," and "Miss Nobody of Nowhere." The successful
play, "Prince Kurl," is also from his
A treat is promised next week in the
coming of tlie Zinn Musical Travesty
company, which appears at Sherman's
opera house all next week. The Walla
Wulla Hulls sin of a recent dale says:
/.inn's Musical Travesty company
gave a clever performance at the Key-
lor Grand thcittro last night, and the
large audience was highly pleased.
With the Zinn's there is something doing ull the time, and while the plot
could hardly be found with a microscope, it detracted uot a whit from
the enjoyment,
"When the comedians were not on
the stage, the girls were, antl it was
one continual round of jokes, songs,
dancing and amusement, nnd without
vulgarisms. It is the kind of a performance that takes, and It has surely
caught on In Walla Wnlla."

To Study American Methods,
Washington. D, C, Oct. 25.���Major
C. F. Close and Captain Firth of the
topographic division of the Hritish ordinance survey are expected in Washington next week on a mission that is
without precedent in the history of the
friendly relations between the United
States and Great Britain. The purpose
of the Hrlish oificers in coming here
is to study the map making system of
the United States. The British ordnance survey makes the official maps
for the British empire. It is reputed
to be the foremost organization of Us
kind in the world, but at the same
time there are some points in which
the map-makers of the United States
geological survey excel. One of these
in particular is the system of printing
maps in three colors, brown for the
contours, blue for the rivers, and black
for the roads and towns. The method
has been copied from the United
States by the French, Swiss and German governments, and it is expected
thai England will follow suit. During
th��ir visit here th<| British officers
will be afforded every facility for investigation by the war department, the
geological survey and the coast and
geodetic survey.
