University Club Objects
to Reduction
Resolution Adopted Urging Government to Pass Endowment Bill
as Introduced.
The attack of the two opposition .parlies in the legislature upon tho Provincial UnlverBlty Endowment bill has
rnused the friends of unlverBily education tbrouBlioul the province. Party
lines are for the moment forgotten and
all arc united to urge Premier McUride
und his colleagues to adhere to the
terms ssf the bill as introduced.
N" organisation in the province has
slssiis- so much In urging the estnbllsh-
1111 in  unsl endowment of a university
ai tin* Unlverslt) Hub of NelBon.   For
three  years the campaign   was   maintained by lhal club almost single-hand-
s-sl,   When the Endowment bill was finally   introduced ths- club unanimously
adopted a resolution  expressing grail-
floatlon and  forwarded  I,  to the  premier..   The standing committee of the
club on Ibe question was retained in of-
llrs', althougb  Its  functions  were considered practically nt an end.
The news that the opposition parly In
the legislature was united In an atlack
on the bill roused lbe committee to action again.
A special meellng was called Satur-
day afternoon at 4 o'clock In Dr. Arthur's office. The members of the com-
millse are: Mrs. B. C. Arthnr. Mrs. W.
S. Pearcy, Rev. F. H. Graham. llev. J.
T. Ferguson, Dr. E. C. Arthnr, A. L.
McKillop, C. M. Fraser. W. J. Balrd and
R. J. Clark. All but two were present
ut the meeting and the absentees' opln-
Ions were represented.
The chairman briefly stated the rea-
aon fssr calling the meeting, read thc
original bill, and the amend ments pro-
poss.(i by the loader of the opposition.
II was then moved by Dr. Arthur, sec-
rndcsl by Rev. I-*. 11. Graham, and unanl-
uisiiissly  rs-solved:
"That the University Club of Nelwn
regards the proposal to deduct from the
land grant lor the Provincial University all revenues derived from minerals,
coal and timber In or upon such lands,
as a menace to the future efficiency If
not to the very existence of the university;
"Tnal it Is the conviction of this club
that such deduction would render the
grant utterly inadequate for the purposes for which it Is Intended;
"That this club, therefore, earnestly
requests the government of British Columbia to adopt the endowment bill as

Cobalt Proves Rich in Rare  Mineral���
In Good Demand.
Toronto, April 8.���M. II. Dreany, of
Dreuny & Company has received an
(srder from an Kngllsh syndicate for a
carload of molybdenite. This substantia
Is now being mined on the Temagamo
claim, which has the largest deposit
thereof in the world. sMolybdenatic
acid Is used In the tempering of the finer
grades of steel and cutlery, aud the
market for lt Is confined almost solely
lo Liverpool and Sheffield. The annual
production of the mineral in Norway Is
14 long loiiB, and In the United Slates
30 short tons, and these countries hitherto bave practically controlled tbo
world's supply. On the Temagaml claim
at Cobalt, which Is 30 acres in area, 20
veins of molybdenite have been discovered. Molybdenite ls a sulphide! of
molybdenum, and lt Is worth about $500
a ton.
Word has been received stating that
Cobalt Is being boomed In the English
ppers, and that an English syndicate
is preparing to place 500,000 shares of
mining stock on the London market.
Mr. M. J. Patterson, a mining engineer, reports on the Ontario-Quebec,
Gilpin and Wonderland, claims that
their elevation ls 100 feet above the
level of the Cobalt lodes and so the
shafts will require sinking to tbe depth
of 100 feet to get at them. Some native silver Ib being found In the shafts
on the way down. The shaft on tho
Wonderland Is npw at lhe 100-foot level
Prof. Schoonmakcr reports a find of
native silver ou the Coyne property.
Cobalt Lake stock will probably be
placed on the market today. Allotments
were yesterday sent out to different
Two Big Companies Preparing to Operate Near Alberta Capital���For
Qold and Gas.
Edmonton, April 8���Two large mining companleB are announced in Edmonton as being ready to commence operations on undertakings which will be of
very great Importance to this city. They
are the American Canadian Oil company, which proposes to operate ln the
Morlnvlllc district, and the Clark Dredg.
Ing company, of Chicago, which proposes to work gold drcdgeB on the Saskatchewan between here and Strathcona.
The American-Canadian Oil company
is backed by Seattle capitalists, and
tbey have leases on a large tract of
territory In the Morlnvllle district which
Dr. Dawson and Dr. Selwyn and JoBeph
Tyrrell pronounced as an oil field nearly ten years ago. The manager of the
company, 11. L. Williams, put down a
test well ln 1905 to a dept of 550 feet,
proving the presence of gas in large
siuantities. He now has eleven carloads of drilling machinery on the rail
from Pittsburg, with which he proposes
to sink to a depth of three thousand
feet If necessary. Mr. Williams Is a
pioneer In the Summerland oil fields of
California, and Is expected to be competent driller aud a very successful
Tho Clark Dredging Company's work
il ln the hands of Horace J. Clark, of
Chicago, president of the company. He
Is bncke,d by large capital, and the
dredge will cost $60,000. The latter is
now on the way from Chicago. Clark
admits that there havo been many unsuccessful attempts to work the river
gravel, but ho Bays that ho uuderBtansls
lho proposition and thai he has taken II
only afler having made thorough tests
of Ihe river bed. He has secured a lease
of 15 miles of river bottom from the
federal government.

John McLatchle, of Nelson, who has
been in Calgary for the past four
months, working on the right of way

Fifty Cm-its a Month
New Ontario Dissatisfied
Ith Lot
Meeting Held to Initiate Movement
Is Unanimous-- Want Local
Fort Frances, Ont., April 8.���A big
masBinccting of both political parties
waB held last evening to Initiate the
movement in New Ontario of secession
from tbe old province and forming a
new one embracing Algoma, Nipisslng,
Thunder Bay and Rainy River districts.
For some lime there haa been a grow-
ing feeling of discontent over the way
this district has been treated by the
Ross and Whitney governments, and
which has been intensified by the utter
indifference Pr imler Whitney and his
colleagues haves manifested towardB,
not only this part of the country, but
to the districts ot Nipisslng and Algo-
ma. Tho fact that ln spite of remonstrances from all sources and from both
parties as to tho continued robbing of
the districts mentioned by sale of timber, collection of unjust dues, inlqul-
tious mining and Umber laws and the
absolute refusal to return even five per
cent of thhe revenue so taken, has led
to a deep fellug throughout the entire
country that If those districts would
grow aad prosper they must not look to
Toronto for further assistance, but secede and legislate for themselves.
The feeling that New Ontario has
been tho milch cow long enough has
come to stay, and It is not likely to end
as long as Old Ontario holds the balance of power and retains all the revenue without an adequate quid pro quo
ia return.
After a number of speeches had been
made by tbe reeves of the several municipalities and other leading citizens
of both parlies the following resolution moved by Dr. F. H. Bethune, secretary of the district Conservative association, and seconded by W. I. Price,
a leading Liberal leader of Buriss, was
carried by a standing vote:
"Whereas, New Ontario comprising
the following districts, Nipisslng, Algoma, Manitoulin, Thunder Bay, Rainy
River and that part of Ontario lying
north and west of the French river, if
tliat part of Keewatln east of the Manitoba boundary bo Included Ib sufficient
In area to form a new province, as lt
has an area of 032,815 square miles, 1-0
of the area of Canada, and larger than
the combined area of Alberta aud Saskatchewan and 12 times the combined
area of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick
and Prince Edward Island.
"And whereas: The legislation of Old
Ontario has uniformly followed the system of collecting revenue out of the resources of the dlBtrlct and has never
made any return for the same.
"Therefore, it is resolved that a committee be appointed to communicate
with the various cities, towns and municipalities, throughout Ihe districts of
Oatario lying west nnd norlh of the
French river, and endeavor to ascertain
thler opinion concerning the advisability of seceding from Old Ontario, nnd of
forming a new province, and In event
of their being in favor of the same to
endeavor to have a meeting called at
a convenient city In ench district, wllh
lhe object of appointing a board or com.
miltee, to arrnnge to have a plebiscite
taken of the above mimed districts to
ascertain the feelings of the people in
ihe matter."

Destruction of Property.
Many complaints are mails' of the de.
striieilve habU of certain boys living up
the hill and tbe seeming neglect of par
ents in bringing up their children. The
electric light globes are being smashed,
and It may be that the city will be
forced to shut oft* the light In certain
pails of the city altogether. If something Ib not soon done to restrain the
destructive habits of these youngsters,
the aid or the police will have to be
called In.
Home Again.
P. Lamont, manager of tile Canada
Drug & Book Co., Ltd., returned last
Saturday ovening from a four weeks'
visit tu California and Oregon. Most
of Mr. Lamont's vacation was spent
amongst the orange groves of California, and lt Is needless to say that he enjoyed himself Immensely. At Lob Angeles It was raining and this somewhat
interfered with the pleasure of his
visit there, but he was able to take a
run out to Pasadena, Santa Monica and
olher points of Interest. No place
seemed to possets the same attractions,
however, as San Diego and Its surroundings. Coronado Beach was visited, and
a day or so was spent very pleasantly
at that famuuo tourist resort During
his absence Mr. Lamont met many former residents of Nelson, all of whom
are prospering'In their new homes.
John McGuire Dead.
Those who have taken much Interest
in theatrical matters In the West will
regret to learn of the death of that veteran manager, John McGuire, wblch
took place at Monterey, Cal., a few days
ago. The deceased was the pioneer
of Butte, Mont., but visited nearly every
city in the West during his managerial
career, which extended over a period of
40 years. He was ln Nelson on several
occasions, and those who met him were
greatly Interested in the old man's
reminiscences of early theatrical
events. Besides being a manager Mr.
McGuire was an actor of the old school,
and in character parts had few equals
ln the West. He also contributed largely to the press, and at the time of his
death, was editing a newspaper at Monterey.

Premier's Duplicity Fully
Custodian of Honor of Parliament
Declines to Permit Charges
To Be Investigated.
Ottawa, April 8.���Last Tuesday's debate ln the House of Commons will remain historic in the political annals of
the country. That was the day fixed for
Mr. Bourassa's motion for an Investigation into matters affecting the honor of
ministers and members. The Independent-Liberal member for Labelle moved
a resolution calling for the appointment
of a special committee to enquire Into
the conduct and character of members
and ministers against 'whom charges
and reflections had been made. Mr.
Bourassa referred to Conservative members whose names have been mentioned
ln the Insurance enquiry and also to
any ministers and members who might
be Implicated In the "wine, women and
graft" suggestion of Mr. Folwer.
The motion for an enquiry was voted
down at the request of Sir Wilfrid Laurler. Not a single regular government
supporter voted for lt. \On the other
hand, every Conservative member, except two, wbo refrained from voting because their names were mentioned,
gave their voice, for a full Investigation
and enquiry, aB did three Independent-
Liberals, Mr. Bourassa, Mr. Lavergne
and Mr. Robltallle. lt was thus practically a straight party division. Mr.
Borden and his whole party joined Mr.
lionrassa In the request that all charges
and reflections affecting the honor of
members of the House and their worthiness to sit as representatives of the
people be cleared up. Sir Wilfrid and
his whole following voted against such
It should be remembered thst from
the opening day of the session until Mr
Fowler gave notice of his intention to
carry the war into Africa, government
supporters lost no opportunity to throw-
out insinuations and sneers against
certain of their opponents. While carefully avoiding any direct charge which
could be taken up and Investigated tbey
have been free with Imputations suggested by the grossly unfair and apparently malicious report of the Insurance
commission. Who would have expected
such a remarkable outcome to the demand for parliamentary Investigation?
We find that Mr. Foster, Mr. Fowler,
Mr. Bennett and Mr. Lefurgy, the members mentioned fn the insurance report
not only ready for an enquiry but even
demanding it. On the other hand, the
ministers and members, Including thoso
who have instigated nnd promoted the
political excursions of the insurance
commissioners, and all who have assisted or encouraged tbe assaults on
the character of Conservative members,
now coming forward ln a body to deprecate and head off a parliamentary investigation. Had a commltteo been appointed the majority of tho court would
be government supporters. The minister of justice, whose partisanship Is narrower and more bitter than that of any
previous occupant of his ofllce, would
hnve largely controlled lis methods and
procedure. Notwithstanding this lho
opposition was ready to accept tho investigation. Tho government would
have none on any terms.
Of course It was not to bo an Investigation Into Insurance matters only. Mr.
Bourassa ln the preamble of his motion
referred to Insurance reports to remarks
mado In the House by Mr. Carvell. Mr.
Ross and Mr. Devlin, all Liberals, to
Mr. Fowler's notlco that the true Ilyman story might be told, and his further
intimation that If the House Intended
to go into the discussion of private affairs ho would himself "discuss the
character of members opposite, whether
they be ministers or private members
and their connection with women, wine
nnd graft."
Mr. Bourassa's resolution then pro-
"Thai these statements have hs*eome
ti matter of gons'ral comment and have
aroused public opinion throughout iv.'.
country, so thai an Immediate enquiry
'a Imperative.
Thai Ihe prime minister and his wl
leagues, being the principal gnai,!.::���:.:
of Ihe honor of Parliament, should take
lhe initiative In such an enquiry;
That the government should .therefore, ask the House to constitute a special committee to conduct a strict and
Impartial enquiry as to whether any
ministers of tne Crown or members of
Parliament havo improperly made use
of their positions ns such Tor their private gain, or have otiierwise boen guilty
of personal misconduct under such circumstances or of such a character as to
justify the Intervention nnd censure of
this House;
That any charges that may be preferred against any member of the government or of the houBe should be formulated before lhat committee; and
that membeis of this House or other
persons who have material or data at
their disposal with reference thereto,
should divulge them to that committee;
That such committee have power to
employ and hear counsel, to send for
persons, papers and records, to examine
witnesses on oath or affirmation, and
to report to the Hon.**..- during tho presenl session.
This was the motion that Mr. Bourassa offered from his seat on the government side of the House. It is the
motion which tbe opposition leader and
party supported to a man. It Is the
motion which Sir Wilfrid Laurier and
the whole of his regular party opposed
and defeated. It Is the motion which
Parliament rejected by a majority
of 64.
In bis argument Mr. Bourassa made
some personal allusions which he did
not obtain from Mr. Fowler, and which
were more direct and striking than any
statements previously made ln Parliament. We do not quote these words
here. He summed up his case In thla
"In regard to the general accusstlon
nbout 'wine, women and graft,' I claim
that if any ministers of the Crown���the
truth of which accusations I do not
know and speak only of general facts���
are connected with wine and women In
such a way that has become a matter
of public scandal;lf they have used the
property of the government to carry on
their profligate acts; If they have been
guilty of this conduct with women, and
if anybody has a knowledge of these
facts, he must make them public."

George S. Bailey, of Lewlston, Idaho,
president and manager of the Wild
Rose and Osark mlnea, at Peine City,
Idaho, ha* Jnst closed a deal for the

Golden Bell group* of mines, near Salmo for flM.000. The properties wero
owned respectively by Thomas Bennett
and F. P. Drummond and others, and

Vanoouver, April 8.���The vivid account of the wonderful Eldorado die-
covered ln the Bast End of Vanoonver,
which appeared In the column* ot one
of the evening papers, may, a* stated,
start a stampede towards Gore and Dun-
levy avenues, but It Is more than likely
that the wonderful discovery of gold
will be aa quickly forgotten aa the report waa sudden. Mr. R. J, Skinner,
wbo Is the one at the -court house who
Issues licenses, state* that the seven
licenses for mining claims were duly
taken out by men who, It Is reported,
have formed the syndicate, and Mr.
Skinner still further says that lt Is
quite possible tbat gold was found, Just
as haa been deacrlbed by Mr. Phil. W.
Harner, while he waa digging the ditch,
but where did the gold come from? Mr.
Skinner Is an old mining man himself,
and, what ia more, something of a geologist, and In hla opinion, there la no
placer ground In this peninsula oa
which Vancouver Is built. The utter
lack of any waah, and the impossibility
of Its ever having formed the bed of any
stream, precludes the possibility of the
present lind resulting In placer fields.
It Is hardly creditable that the gold
could have come (rom any lead, which
would mean a quarts ledge, and those
who. best know the formation of the
land, which is composed (or the most
part of clay and sandstone, will take
the tidings of the wonderful gold discovery with s large pinch of salt. Mr.
Skinner states that It is possible tbat
In some way the gold waa dropped or
lost by some one long ago, and ha* possibly settled down to the hard paa
from which it wu unearthed.

But the attack of J. A. Macdonald,
himself a member of a learned profession, is a different matter.
We do not propose al present to deal
With Mr, Macdonald's m otives but only
with his proposals. He will hear in a
few days, if he has not already heard,
from more enlightened members of his
own party, who may bo pafoly trusted
to point out to hlm the fatuous nature
of the course he ls pursuing.
Mr. Macdonald urges that the grant
be reduced to l.OOO.OOO acres, and that
even from the 1,000,000 all revenues
troni coal, minerals and timber be diverted from the university funds to the
revenues of the province for general
if Mr. Macdonald had not explicitly
staled lhat he favored the establishment of a university, the only possible
Inference that could he drawn from his
amendment, would be that ho sought
to make such establishment Impossible.
His proposals differ not In kind but
only in degree from those of Mr. Hawthornthwaite that the grant be reduced
to 150.000 acres, and that all coal, mineral, timber and agricultural land be excluded.
One clause of the endowment bill already provides that:
The said firunt of land shall not In
The attack on the government bill
to endow a provincial university out of
the public domain, made in the legislature by J. A. Macdonald, Uberal leader, last Friday, came as a shock to the
advocate of endowment ihroughoul the
For three years and a half the friends
of education in British Columbia, led,
both In time aud effort, by the University Club of Nelson, have been urging
the immediate provision by endowment
for the establishment of a university
which all are convinced, is essential to
the completion of ilie educational system of the provlnoe.
Their efforts were at las) rewarded
by the introduction, early in Uie present session of the legislature, of an
enudowment bill framed on generous
And   Intelligent   lines.
The chlet clausea in the bill are;
"It shall be lawful for the lieuienant
governor In council to grant lo the University of British Columbia lands in the
province nl' British Columbia, not exceeding 8,000,000 acres, in aid of higher
educatio:   in this province."
"All revenues derived from aald
lands, or from the sale or otber disposition thereof by the said university,
shall be t'Voted to ihe maintenance by
said uuiversiy of the following faculties; Aris and Science, Medicine, Law
and Applied Science."
The bill was immediately attacked
by thc Socialists in tbc legislature.
Their attack neither requires or de-
serves much consideiation. Their only
pretence of an argument destroys itself
They say ihat the well io do, for whom
universities are maintained can well afford to send their children to eastern
institutions���they can. It Is for the
talented and deserving Children of the
poor that a university within the province is chiefly required. Fortunately all
the working men of British  Columbia
Sir Wilfrid Laurler's reasons for voting against Mr. Bourassa's motion for
enquiry Into G. A. Fowler's genernl
charges of corruption, are as puerile as
anything he has ever said either in the
House or on the public platform. Me
objected to having Inquisitorial functions Imposed upon Parliament, and regretted that Mr. Bourassa's motion ud-
mi tied of no amendment. The second
statement was flagrantly dishonest; he
himself had dictated the form of the
motion. Even if It were true It would
mean that Sir Wilfrid wished an opportunity to express a pious opinion
without committing himself to any line
of action. As to his first objection,
whore, If not In parliament, are such
charges to be investigated? Sir Wilfrid quoted with his usual unction the
time-honored phrase about parliament
being the custodian of its own honor.
Parliaments have always recognized the
obligation of purifying themselves of
unclean members. Mr. Gladstone did
not ignore even street gossip when it
touched a member of his cabinet. Sir
Wilfrid has shirked his duty and left
to the public press the duty of driving
moral lepers from the cabinet council.
The dismissal of Lord Aylmer from
the command of the Canadian forces is
but one more act in a long and unbroken series since 1896, that demonstrates
tl)rj purpose of the Ottawa machine,
of converting the Canadian militia
like all other departments of the public
service into a political engine for tbe
advancement of purely parly Interests.
Lord Aylmer is a thorough soldier, of
high ideals, straight methods, and popular with the rnuk and flip of every
military unit In the Dominion. For political jobbery however ho has neilher
taste nor capacity, nnd therefore he
has not won the favor of his departmental chief, Sir Frederick Borden,
and therefore he has to go. Lord Aylmer Is In good company. Among thi;
other soldiers who have beeu found too
honest for the post are General Herbert, Geueral Hutton, General O'Grady-
Haly and Lord Dundonald.
George P. Graham, leader of the Liberal ojfpwiiitliyi. Jn the Ontario legislature, has not yet ehowp h'tyse'f to be
a statesman, but lie has earned a certain measure of public respect by declining to accept a salary as leader of
the opposition. Mr. Whitney was perhaps right in offering it. He had the
examples of Sir Oliver Mowat and Sir
Wilfrid Laurler. Mr. Graham might
have quoted oue precedent for acceptance, but he choBe to follow the earlier
and more honorable precedent set by
Sir William Meredith.
Dr. Hall asked a question in the legislature last week. He wanted to know
how n.aijy special permits had been
granted to t��a��di*rx In 1905 and 190(1.
Of course the superintendent of education or any clerk lu his office could
have given the Information, but Dr.
Hall Is quite right In using all available means and opportunities to familiarize himself with public speaking
John Oliver's strictures on the public
school acts of 1905 and 190G were sufficiently ridiculous, it might have been
thought, to debar that learned member
from further contributions to debate on
questions connected with education.
Hut modesty Is not one of John's weaknesses. He has now constituted himself an authority on the requirements
of universities.

Now, it Is obvious that any other
land that may be granted for the university, if it Is to afford any revenue
within a reasonable time, must carry
with ii all possible sources of revenue.
Mr. Macdonald's proposed deduction
would leave nothing but potential value
as agricultural land, nnd ns no university board can go into the business of
land prumoUng, the market value of
even such parts of the grant as might
bo favorably situated, would be at the
most but a few dollars au ncr*.

Big Electric Plant at Kakabeka Falls on
Kaminittiquia River Now Ready
for Operation.
Fort William, April 8.���A project
long dlacuBHed and variously conaldered
haa at last been cryatallzed Into fact
by the Kamlniatlqula Power Company,
and thiB town ls now being supplied
with electric energy generated at Kakabeka Falls, on the Kamlnlstisqula river,
25 mileB weBt of Fort William. The
power Ib transmitted to the town by
two lines on a single right-of-way, and
la there distributed from a substation.
The electrical equipment, which was
manufactured and Installed by this Canadian General Klectrlc company. Is
of the most Improved and modern pattern. The buildings nre absolutely fireproof, being built entirely of structural
steel and reinforced concrete, and the
plant as a whole will bear favorable
comparison with any of its kind In tho
At the generating station the installation comprises two 5,000 k.w., 4,000
volt, three phase alternators, each direct connected to a 6,786 h. p. twin reaction water turbine; two 150 k.w., 125
volt, direct current generators, each dl-
rect connected to a 250 h.p. turbine and
two banks of three transformers each,
each transformer of 2,200 k.w. capacity
of air-blast type, 2,300 to 14,475 volts.
The electrlcy is conducted in leaden-
cased cables laid In tyle ducts underneath the floor from the generators to
selector switches, located fn cells near
the transformer air chamber. For
handling the heavy parts of the machines a 35-ton Nile crane has been Installed. The crane motors are supplied
with current from the exciter generators.
The switchboard Is thoroughly up-to-
date ln the manner of control, and also
in the apparatus used. No voltage
higher than 125 volts Is found near It.
The transformers are set ln concrete
cells in a gallery beneath the 4,000 volt
buses and the current transformers are
placed on the concrete shelves ln similar cells behind the high tension oil
It Is dlfflcult to realize what the Installation of this Important plant really
means to the town of Fort William and
Port Arthur. Admirably located at the
extreme end of Canada's extensive
system of waterways, these towns bid
fair to become great industrial .centres,
were It not for the difficulty ot the fuel
supply owing to the great distance from
the coal fields. Now that an abundant
Bupply of electric power ls available nt
reaBonable rates the growth of these
towns should be materially accelerated.
Already a number of big Industries are
nearing completion, while several others are projected. These comprise the
Altokan Iron company, the Canadian
Northern Coal and Ore Docy company,
the Melsel Manufacturing company,
said to a branch of the Port Huron
Harvester company; the Semans, Kent
company, woodworking plant; the Canadian Iron Foundry company, while the
Northern Steel company, of Colllngwood, are negotiating for the erection
of a plant for manufacturing wire and
nails. This Is only a partial list, but it
sufficient to indicate that the twin
towns, as they are sometimes termed,
arc on the high road to Industrial pros
Trade Marks Which Have Become Invaluable Through Merit.
All cameras are not "Kodaks."
All piano-players are not "Pianolas."
All ready-to-flnish   clothes    are not
These three well-known trade mark
names have taken a permanent place
ln the English language, though they
did not exist fifteen yenrs ago. They
have been made to mean so much that
the public applies the name generally
to anything that resembles them.
Merchants and manufacturers who
have Imposed on the general acceptance of a name have suffered by their
Infringement of the Trade Mark Act.
By enthusiastic and Intelligent promotion, the owners of a trade mark
such as "Semi-ready" have succeeded
In revolutionizing an Industry and have
Incidentally created an asset valued In
the millions. As a great American
millionaire observed, "I had rather own
a well-known trade mark than a million dollar plant."	
I have Just returned to Neleon and
