organizers wus fulfilled. Many of lho
trades unions totally refused to join
iu the movement. The railroad men,
whose co-operation was vital, could
not be induced to recognize the signal
for a general strike, and there was no
sign of a peasant movement. While
the repressions and arrests of the

UOtlon it Is apparent that the move
ment was ill-chosea for a strike. The

The government, which had pre
pared for the worst, holding military
trains iu readiness at all centers, had
even made arrangements to send the
foreign mails by torpedo boats from
St. Petersburg, mm naturally Is great

The leaders of the non-revolutlonan
parties do not conceal their satisfaction at the defeat of their old allies
on the extreme left, as they feared a
great strike, with widespread disorders entailing repressions which
'might be used as justification of a
new parliament. With comparative
tranquility ahead they can hold the
government   to   Us   promises.

demonstrations were broken up last

to co-operate in the strike.   Many of

..   R.   McQuarrle's   Account   of   Trip
Into   Hills   Near   Burton   City-
Fifty Mountain Goata Seen.
The near approach of the hunting
season has already Bet local sportsmen thinking of new hunting grouds
and mentally comparing the atraclions
of rival localities. Probably no other
city on the continent has so many
districts rich In big game, all wlihin
easy reach, as Nelson has.
The divide east of Kootenay lake Ib
famous for goat and cirlhoo. The
valley of Salmon river, ^f the Little
Blocan, lhe valley of Bear lake, and
the Ijirdeaii dislrlct, all abound In big
game. But a new field, almost untouched us yet, is likely to be the favorite this year. The high range lying between Ihe Slocan and Arrow
lakes has hardly been explored. It
has not attracted prospectorB or timber cruisers to any extent and settlers
are fe won either si deof lhat range.
But casual visitors have seen enough
to convince them that It Is, beyond
any other district, even In Kootenay,
the sportsman's ideal land.
A week ago Dr. Kerr of RoBsIantT,
who was camping oa the shore of the
Arrow 'lake with a fishing party, told
of a couple of deer passing between
his camp and the shore.
M. It. McQuurrle, who has recently
returned from a trip to the same locality, lulls a story even more conclusive as to Uie abundance of big
game and their evident unfamlllarlty
with   human   enemies.
Mr. McQuarrle was at Burton Cily
and wus told that 25 mountain goats
hud been seen together In the hills.
He was surprised, because few hunters have ever seen more than two or
three together. He traveled on horse
hack seven milea up Ibe valley of
Snow creek and was rewarded by see
ing below him, on n lick of blue clay,
n whole herd of the animals numbering over fifty. He regretted not having a camera, as he could easily have
obtained a splenuid picture.
He was Informed that about the
middle of August the goals retire further up the hills, hut that In July
Ihey are often seen In conslderubld
numben within ��� few miles of the
lake shore, leading on tho lowel
Hinges  where the snow  has molted.

Will Oppose Request Made
by Fruit Growers
Says White Labor Can be Obtained
if Fair Wages are Offered���No
Reed For Chinese.
The union labor men of British Co
lumbia, as might be expected, are pre
pared to oppose, if It seems necessary to them, the concession asked
for by the Kootenay Growers, of a remission of the prohibitive head tax on
Chinese in favor of agricultural la
borers and domestic  servants.
Frank Phillips, president of the
miners union In British Columbia, ln
terviewed  last night,  said:
"Of course we are against it. There
is no scarcity of labor. Any man that
wants laborers can get ihem If he
w... pay a fair price. I can get a
good many right here.
"A fair price? Well, $3 a day. A
man can't live In this country on any
less. Now, ranchers don't offer any
such wages as that, and that is tbe
reason why white men don't care to
work on ranches.
"Can the fruit InduBtry stand the
payment of such wages? I don'l
know. If it can't the sooner It is
dropped, in my opinion, the better.
"But, judging from the prices
householders here have to pay foi
berries, I think the growers can af
ford to pay decent  wages.
"The landowners here claim that
their land IB the best ln the world for
fruit growing. If that boast depends
on getting cheap labor it should bt
withdrawn. Other fruit countries gel
on without Chinese labor or any
cheap labor, and fhe growers make
good profits.
"If Ihe Kotenasy fruit growers can't
do that, and some of them are quit
willing to try, they ought to get out
of Ihe business and make way for bet
Ier men that can."

Letter    to    Nelsonl.es    From    Agent
General   Shows   What   Is   Being
Done for British Columbia.
A resident of Nelson who is doing
a great deal of quiet and valuable
work for the city and district In sending out views taken by himself and
descriptions of the attractions, has
received the following letter, which
explains  itself:
Office of tbe
Agent-Generasl for British Columbia
Salisbury House,
Flnsbury Circus, E. C,
London, July  25,  1906.
I was very much pleased to receive
your highly interesting letter of the
Sth Inst., which came to hand yesterday. Your glowing description of
Nelson and Its surroundings is likely
to be useful to me in putting the advantages of British Columbia before
inquirers, of whom we have many of
the right sort, 1. e., those who have
capital and are anxious to work, and
who very generally purpose going In
for fruit farming. The fact of it ls
1 know your description ls correct, as
1 have paid many visits to Nelson,
have sen and appreciated its beauties
and advantages and greatly enjoyed
tbe fishing below the falls. Oh, how
1 should like a day now. I am fully
aware that the finest kinds of fruit
Is raised in that part of the country���
we had some at our show here last
December and it elicited great adml-
admiratton from the visitors. There
is no doubt that fruit growing Is going to he one of the most profitable
and delightful Industries of the province, and. eventually, when a market
is wanted outside the dominion, London can take at a good price all you
have to spare. The demand for fruit
is growing here more rapidly than the
supply, asnd the British Columbia
fruit sold here, to test conditions last
winter, proved that an excellent profit
can he made on it for the growers.
One of the great dealers, probably the
greatest seller of fruit in Europe,
told me there Is millions In It for
British Columbia as long as they produce the ' quality such as has heen
sent  here  from   thnt   province.
I shall not fail to bring the advantages of your district before the public here on all occasions. I have just
Induced a gentleman who was going

and who bas taken an active part in
campaigns in the district for the past
fifteen years, was In the city Monday,
and like all bonest Liberals ln Canada,
ls disgusted with the Ottawa machine.
Mr. Sidley took a prominent part ln
the election of Mr. Hewett Bostock In
lS'jo,  and in the election of Duncan
Ross two years ago.   As a worker ln
the party he was entitled to some con- ���
slderation when his interests were in
accord w!Vi the avowed policy of the
Liberal  government  ss  expressed  by
the premier in the house.   Mr. Sidley
is one of the large ranchers In Southern  British  Columbia,  owning  Borne-
where in the  neighborhood of 12,000
acres   along  the boundary     line    between Washington and British Columbia.   He was very much Interested in
the construction of the V.. V. ft E., aa
It would give transportation facilities
and a market for the produce of hla
ranch.   When the V., V. ft E. UU was
before the   house,   the Hon. Geo. B.
Foster pressed an amendment to compel    the    promoters to construct the
road within Canadian territory, where
engineering difficulties did not necessitate, crossing the line.    This resolution was defeated. Sir Wilfred Laurier
stating tbat the government would see
that tbe terms of the resolution were
carried out.   The government did not
see that the Intention ot the resolution
were carried out   In .consequence, the
farmers ot Anarchist Mountain will be
greatly inconvenienced.   The road was
constructed on tha American  side at
additional cost, in order to build up
towns In the United States, and force
tbe farmers of the district to either
drive  ten  miles over  a  mountain or
ship their gootls in bond.   Porter Bros.,
contractors, who have acquired a timber limit on  the Canadian aide, are
compelled to build the sawmill in the
United  States,  thus  an  industry  employing between fifty and a hundred
men,  is established on the American
side  instead  of in  British  Columbia.
Mr. 81dley wrote 8lr Wilfred Laurler.
protesting against the road being built
on  American  territory,  and  directing
the premier's attention to his promise
In the house to see that the terms of
Mr.   Foster's   resolution   were  carried
out.   Sir Wilfred replied that nothing
could be done but to see Mr. Galllher.
Instead of Gallihor he saw I. sss, Sit
wufred evidently not knowing of Mr.
Robs'   existence.     The   member   fo.
Yale-Cariboo���or  rather  the   member
for  Pntwelch���laughed  at  Mr.  Sidley.
The matter was too trivial for a person of his ability to be bothered with.
Tlie    ranchers  of Yale-Cariboo    were
easily hoodwinked  when election time
came round, but the V., V. ft E. contractors   and   promoters   was   "n   very
present   help  in  time of  need."    Mr.
Ross  Is  not   altogether to  blame  for
building up the U. S. ut the expense of
B. C.   He Is a part of a great machine,
owned and controlled by  the railway
interests  of the    United. StateB.    He
does   not represent    Yale-Cariboo.    A
poor man could not he elected in this
large   constituency    without    financial
assistance.    This bejng the case, Mr.
Ross must do the work of those who
elected  him.'   The  ranchers of Anarchist   Mountain    are    merely  voters.
There Influence ls only of a few weeks
duration at  election  time.    The  railroad  Influence  Is  continuous.    If/ the
member elected by them falters in his
allegiance, he Is down and out for all
time.    If he proves false to the electors, he may be able to   fool   them
again.    He  cannot  fool  the  railways
more than once.
While Mr. Ross has been devoting
so much time to the provincial government, a great injustice has been
done an Important farming section ot
his own constituency through his neglect at Ottawa. Industries are being
driven across the line, and ranchers
will be forced to great inconvenience
to transport and market their produce.

Under the above caption Uie Inland
Sentinel returns to iis attacks on the
Canadian ami accuses this paper nt
some things of which it bas nut been
guilty on tbe one hand and for which
it should receive no credit nn the other. The Sentinel complains that the
lour of tht.' Socialist leader bas been
a rampant one and that the only papers to attack him and offer any surt
of resistance have been Liberal papers, nnd that on tbe platforms the
only speakers who have dared to face
him have been Liberals. It actually
accuses the Conservative papers of
running to the rescue of Mr, Hawthornthwaite, Mere is a quotation respecting this paper:
"The Conservatives dare not say a
word in disparagement of their ally,
the man who has kept them in power
and at whose beck and call they arc.
Un the contrary, ihey stick up for
htm, and while the Liberal journals
are taking Uio opportunity to expose
Mr. Hawthornthwalte's chicanery, the
Conservative organs are either silent
or even venture to come to the rescue
of the party's ally. Such an one is
the recently established Daily Canadian, the' provincial government's 01-
gan at  Nelson";
in the first place, we have never
heen aware thai the Socialist bader
waB In any need of rescue from his
Liberal opponents. It is true that he
has, in every place where be bas
spoken, thrown down the gage of battle and that in Bome cases bis challenges were accepted by the Liberal
representatives present, but it is
hardly true tbat in each case be httu
received Revere oastlgatlons, as the
Sentinel asserts. Reports of the meetings held and of tin* honors nl' victory are very conflicting and We believe that the Conservative papers
are the only ones in Lhe province
mat have fairly and without partisan
spirit reported lhe meetings. The
Liberal papers have so far over
stepped the mark ia the partisan
spirit of their reports tlial a Bevero
castlgatlon has been administered
them by the Grand Forks Gazette,
which speaks on, lu this ivtse, in a
lengthy and well-written editorial on
"Tbe Higher Politics," and refers to
a   report   or   Mawihornihwaltea   meet
ing. which appeared In a local paper:
"Only  the oilier- day   the  Mows  it
Keif and   oilier   Liberal   paper;-   at   tho
coast published a lengthy reporl oi
a meeting in Greenwood in which ono
speaker wns dismissed with a para*
graph while the opponent's address
wus given columns of space, with ail
the necessary eulogy and padding
The public might agree wllh either
or neither of the speakers, but though
party advantage may be secured by
these methods, we are positive, that
lhe  public  good is   not   promoted."
The Canadian, however, has consistently affirmed that Mr. Hawthornthwaite justified himself In the nm
Bonn he gave for supporting the Me
Bride administration by his vote;; in
Lue house. Thai Is all we care for,
We are not concerned much with Mr.
Hawthorn thwalte's socialistic theories
ami are willing to let tbe people think
nt them whai appears to lie rlghi
I.ut when the Liberal papers en
masse misrepresent the Socialist
leader and report in terms of fulsome
flattery the speeches of the Liberal?
who attempted to criticise him, we
would not he just did we not do our
part to correct their false reports and
obviate the false Impression tbat may
be made by them. Neither would we
worry much i ft he opposition papery
confined iheir remarks to the editorial
columns, for I ben the public would
understand, but when the editorial
tactics of the Liberals are carried into
the news columns of their papers we
think a protest Is in order.
The discussion of the inefficiency
ol' tin* postal service Is not a political discussion, but unsatisfactory service In renpoct of the mail delivery
and transportation is a fit and necessary subject of criticism no matter
what political party is in power. Citizens of the frontier in Canada are
willing to suffer some inconvenience
if they can be convinced that the
best that ls possible is being done,
ami more especially would this be the
case If tlii' postal department were
losing money. When, however, the
department is making money and creating a surplus, and the liberal administration is boasting oT this (acl,
there is a natural disposition on the
part of those suffering inconvenience
to air their grievances and to point
out details in which the service can be
made much mote useful to the business and other enterprises of the
Thus it has transpired that from
Winnipeg west a storm of protest
bas been raised at the obvious delinquencies under which the people are
.suffering. The prairie provinces are
heavy losers because the contraeis
for mail transportations have been allowed to run on the same lines us
tnose In effect when the demands upon the service were far less important than they are at present. In
Itritish Columbia matters are even
worse. As a case In point, the attention id' this paper was called to a
glaring case of neglect in creditably
arranging lhe transfer of the mulls
between Crows Nest line points und
the city of Kaslo. A gentleman whose
home is in Kaslo but who Is at present residing iu Cranbrook, has pointed
out that be can mail a letter at Cranbrook ut noon of any given day and.
alter waiting till the train for tho
west leaves that point on the day fob
lowing, be can still reach Kuslo aboul
ten hours before the letter arrive...
Hy the same token, u letter mailed In
Kaslo on Saturday noon can be beaten in its journey to Cranbrook, even
if the sender does nol leave Kuslo
nil   the  following   Monday   morning.
We nre nware that the explanation
of this curious phenomenon is that
Un* passenger will travel over two
lines of transportation while the let-
ier in question Is, under the present
contracts, conveyed by one transportation company. We are aware, also,
that we shall be told that to carry
Into effect, an arrangement by which
tbe malls will travel as speedily between these points as a passenger
enn do will Involve a slight Increase
in the cosl of transportation. We do
not see that this unswer will avail,
because the transportation of the
mu..s is often more Important than
tnat of n traveler, as tu n very large
majority of cases when n man travelB
&____<     ���""'*���'--tMkem
some distance on business he knows
exa-cUy the time it will require to
reach his objective point, while the
tardy trip of the letters to and fro
causes great inconvenience. If the
country were poor und the postal department piling up heavy deficits
from year u> year, some consideration might be given to excuses and
ill-advised contracts, but with the Liberal boast of a handsome surplus the
patience of the people ls sorely tried.
These instances all go to show mat
while much improvement has been
made In postal falllties "the authorities who have the matter In hand ha.e
utterly failed to grasp tho details of
their business and are either inom-
potent to administer the department
or ate sacrificing the convenience und
prosperity of tlie country in order thai
they may boast ol dividends, We
make these comments iu no hostile
spirit, und only with the view ol calling attention to the glaring defects of
the  postal  service.
Tin* Christian Guardian, official organ of the .Meihodisi church in Canada, has made a practice of printing
front year lo year a full-page group
picture of the presidents of lhe. now,
seven conforeaccs thai compose the
middle and western branches of thai
church. This year the Guardian lias
struck a snag, as may be inferred
from ihe following explanation, which
appealed   in   the   lasi   issue:
"Because of our difficulty in securing photographs of nil our annual conference presidents we have not yet
been able to publish our group picture
of them. Were ft not for the fact
that the wise man has said that there
Is nothing new under ihe snn. we
would conclude that we had really
made a discovery when we cann
across a president of conference so
extremely modest that he did not wis1]
to have his photograph published or
have anything said about his virtues
aud excellencies. No, we are nol going to tell you who he is."
That a man can be found who is
strong enough to refuse tn enter tho
galaxy of popularity hunters who infest, not alone the Methodist (lunch
but most all others, is refreshing indeed. Anyone who witnesses the mad
haste with which members of conferences and assemblies get into the
limelight of the photographer's lens at
the annual gatherings of religious and
fraternal assemblies has much to reflect upoa, and it is a matter of common sarcastic remark that ambassadors and nobles, kings and princes
and preachers, put on at such times
the sickly smile that gives the world
anything but an opportunity to judge
from their photographs something of
their true character through the infai-
lildes linos of facial expression. We
should like to wager who the clergyman who has refused ihe buardlan
its annual tribute ot flattery to the
Labor is scarce in Canada, and wb>
shouldn't it l��e when the youth and
chivalry of the country Is busy play
ing bowls or golf.
Revenge is n boomerang that often
returns and puts the thrower out of

The issue of an additional loan by
the city of $50,000 for the completion
of the power plant requires the rais
ing of the rate of municipal taxation
to 2D mills, which waa resolved upon
last  night  by  the  city council.
Other matters dealt with Included
the vexed question of Fred BoiQUet'fl
menagerie, the cinders from the Yale-
Columbia Company's sawmill, the report for July of the chief of the fire
department .and the further delay by
lhe Allis-Chalmers-Hullock company  in
forwarding the machinery for the city
power  plant.
Aid, Scions expressed the couilcH'h
sympathy with Mr. and Mrs. J, Fred
Hume  In   their  recent loss.
The meeting was called at 8, with
Mayor Olllett in the chair, and Aldermen Hume, Selous, Amiable, Irving
and [lose phesent. The minutes of
ine last meeting were read and ap
A letter from Dr. Arthur, city medical health officer, stated that in his
opinion Fred Bosquet's menagerie
was no) a menace to the health of
neighbors, though at times the burning of refuse undoubtedly created a
disagreeable odor. He recommended
that in future all refuse lie removed
and burned where it could not inconvenience  any  one.
Aid. Selous thought that, since lhe
health officer did not Specifically describe the menagerie as a nuisance,
the council could not act.
It. Robinson, invited to address thu
council, complained of the nightly
howling of the coyotes and the odor
at  times of cleaning out  the cages.
A. Thomas, who has repented of tne
statement to which he placed his Big-
nature, stated lhat while he was a
friend of Mr. Bosquet, he found the
ouor of the menagerie intolerable at
After som econsullation of author-
ltles it was agreed that the council
would later resolve itself Into a board
of health   to  deal   wllh  it.
.1. il. liitlings then addressed the
council, staling that the cinder nuisance at the Yale-Columlba sawmill
could be obviated by Introducing
draught through the stack, at a tost
of $1,000. He promised that it would
be done as soon as the mill could be
closed   down   without   great  loss.
Mr. Billings also asked for a tease
of the foreshore near their til for the
purpose of filling it in to lengthen
their siding. He said that it would
improve lhe water front and interfere
with  no one's rights.
The latter was left over until the
next meeting, permission being given
for enjoyment of a right of way in
the  meantime.
Chief Deasy's report for .July
showed no alarms of fire. One member of the department was fined two
days' pay for absence wtlhout leave.
He recominnded that hydrants bo inspected monthly; that additional pipe
lines be laid in the business district;
that two condemned buildings be removed; lhat a'l unoccupied buildings
be securely closed, and that the practice of depositing ashes in wooden
boxes be slopped. The report was referred to the fire, water and light
Aid. Rose introduced by-laws 1G8,
109 nnd 170, dealing with city revenues, which were twice read by title.
The council went in committee of the
the whole with the mayor In the chair.
The by-laws provided for sinking
funds and general revenue, making
taxes   payable  on   September   1.
On Aid. Selous' motion 1 mill was
added, making the total rate 2tt mills,
for provision of Interest and sinking
fund for the proposed new issue of
debentures, and a clause was added
fixing November 1 as the limit for
rebates. The commlttee then rose
and reported the three by-laws complete, as amended. They were then
read a third time by title. Aid. Rose
gave notice of  the  final  motions.
A petition for the submission of a
by-law authorizing the issue of $r>0,-
mto  debentures   was  read.
Aid. Selous then gave notlco that he
would   introduce   such  a  by-law.
The mayor referred to tho letter of
\V. ED, McCundhsh In lhe Daily Canadian, referring to the power plant,
which he said contalnetl many Inaccuracies.
Aid. Selous thought uo notice neod
be taken of it.
Other aldprmetl thottghl anine explanation might he given to the public.
The city engineer said that the tall
rnces wero sufficiently excavated for
the operation of the plant, und that
any extra head obtainable by further
excavation would be of no advantage.
He added that the water Is now going
down at the rate of two inches a day,
and is now at the level of the turbine
The mayor stated that his only Information he had from the Allis-
Chalmers-Bullock company was a verbal message from local manager Gib
lice, to the effect thtft the electric
machinery ls completed but is held
waiting the completion of the hydraulic machinery, that none has yet
been shipped; that Mr. Gllllce has
repeatedly askod for a definite official statement from the company, and
so far has not obtained any.
The mayor stated that by the last
agreement, signed by W. F. Ulel,
holding power of attorney from the
company, |50 a day was payable by
the company to the city since An*
gust  1.
Aid. Selous then, on behalf of the
council, moved, seconded by Aid. Irving, a resolution or condolence and
sympathy with Alderman and Mrs
Aid. Hume briefly thanked the
The council then adjourned to August 20.
In session immediately after as the
board of health the matter of Bos*
quet's menagerie was again taken up.
On motion of Aid. Selous, seconded
by Aid. Annable, the menagerie was
declared, on the evidence of many
residents of the neighborhood, to be
a nuisance and Mr. Bosquet was ordered to remove it.
The mayor raised the question of
the nuisunc** of the Stanley street
sewer. Several other nuisances were
also discussed, but no definite action
was taken.
