Aid. Procter wished lo have a man
appointed in whom the council should

thought the city electrician better qualified than themselves to make such un
Aid. McMorris thought that If the

city's school debentures at 95 nei In
Nelson with no Interest up to April (i,
1908. He explained that the city could

Baltimore, April 22.���Surgeons ln the
John Hopkins hospital during an autopsy on the body of Judge John E.
McKelghan, of St. Louis, were astonished to discover that instead of the usual
setting of the organs those in the body
were scattered about in almost unbe-
lieveable ways. His heart was turned
In a position the reverse of normal, his
kidneys were united by a ligament in
the shape of a horse shoe and the liver
was upside down with the gall bladder
on top. Many of the small organs were
a chaos of entangling cords and fatty
substances. How Judge McKelghan
lived with such a strange transposition
in his body appears marvellous. Surgeons are mystified at it. Whether he
was born witli his organs in abnormal
positions or they were put In this state
through disease or some freak of nature
is not knowm. Judge McKelghan lived

up 30 to 40 per cent, in 20 years, and,
making allowance for Improved methods of manipulation and lor the fact
that bo much of the foreign timber now
cornea into the market in a highly prepared state, the net increase is probably more than these figure* represent.
All llritish and Irish witnesses who
have given evidence state that the quality of toreign timber la markedly Inferior to what it used to be, a fact
which indicate* that the chief timber
producing countries are using up at
home   the   best of  their  own  supplies.
Tbe committee reports that as far a*
Ireland is concerned the disposition of
the area of land in the country ia suitable for afforestation aa well a* the disposition of the existing wood lands,
which is a matter of grave concern. It
reports In favor of a national scheme
of forestry as a profitable investment
to  the  state.
London. April 22���The government
department which has been inquiring
into Irish forestry reports to parliament
that the United States, the manufacturing inductrles of which have expanded
enormously within the last 20 year*, Is
consuming Its timber and destroying Its
forests to an alarming extent.
It tells parliament that of the four
great, forest areas originally in the
country two are practically gone and
the third and fourth are going. It says
that a timber famine Is coming in seven league boots.
Evidence was given before the committee that Canada's supply is also ln
danger and Ib likely in the future to
be heavily encroached on by the United
States. About a third of the supply of
timber coming into the United Kingdom, or nearly ��7,000,000 ($35,000,000)
worth anuuallly, comes from these countries.
In consequence of this state of

Print Bible in 28 Tongue* to
Reach All.
Ab showing the tremendous nature of
the problem presented by the present
unprecedented immigration Into Canada attention should be directed to the
statement made by Rev. R. T. Bowen
at the meeting last night of the Nelsou branch of the Canadian Bible Society that the society has to offer the
Holy Scriptures in seventy different
languages. The number of these spoken in B. C. is twenty-eight. What this
means for the public school and for the
church few can estimate. What it
means at the polling booth should also
be carefully considered. The Bible Society of Canada, working alone, with
the British and Foreign Bible Society
is ln a position to help out the solving
of the problem by means of the circulation of the Scriptures. The UBe of
di-glott versions in which the text appears in English and a foreign language in parallel form ls an execllent
device. To such an institution as the
Bible Society all the churches must
look for assistance and it is to be hoped that the society Itself as now re-organized will not look to the public for
support ln vain. Tbe largely attended
and representative meeting ln the Congregational Church and the enthusiastic and generous response to the appeal
of Rev. Mr. Bowen ls a hopeful augury
It ts proposed to raise $3,000 in British
Columbia so that a good start may be
made in colportage. and the Kootenays
will receive the first share of the society's  attention.

or stolen in the con tructlon of the
government portion of tiie Grand Trunk
Pacific railway, Major A. E. Hodgins, C.
E.. has Issued a letter, the object of
which ls to secure an administrative Investigation.
Major Hodgins is now a resident ot
Victoria. He came to Canada three
years ago, after serving on the stall of
Sir Percy Girouard ln Africa, was ap-
polonted district engineer in charge of
four hundred miles If the section eaat
of Winnipeg, on the National Transcontinental railway. Last October he
was dismissed. He appealed to Sir Wilfrid Laurier and General Manager
Morae, but says no investigation, so
far, ia proposed.
Tbe pith of his charges is that the
Grand Trunk Pacific engineer's reports
and those in the employ of the government do not tally, that the government
is paying padded accounts for the work
done and that the Grand Trunk Pacific
people are making no objection, because they merely have to pay tbe added Interest,
The folowlng are tbe salient portions
of Major Hodgln's letter:
"Changes in the location of the line
were made at some point by revision
surveys. These Improved the line and
also reduced tbe cost of the McArthur
contract over one million dollars. I
was able to make these revisions before
Mr. McArthur started work ln earnest.
The root of the trouble between tbe
commissioner* and myself wae ever
classification. They aksed me to change
my ideas, based on a good many years'
experience on construction, to the classification that ls allowed by contractors
ln Quebec. It was suggested that I
should ignore the chief engineer and
act Independently; tbat the chief engineer liked to be Ignored. I refused to be
more liberal in classification than I was
then allowing, and suggested tbat the
commissioners, not being railroad men,
should leave the engineering department alone.
"C. A. Young, commissioner for Manitoba, then advised tbat I should go to
Quebec and see how things were managed in that district, where contractors
were not kicking, and get an object
lesson. I went, and returned determined not to allow Quebec classification to
be introduced into the western district
so long as I bad charge. This, of course,
led to trouble and I got no assistance
from  chief engineers.
"I have appealed in vain for an Investigation Into classification and have
been told that It would be considered
political interference with the management of the board of commissioners.
If Mr. Poulln, engineer, appointed by
Mr. Parent, to replace me on the western district, has allowed the introduction of classification similar to tbat in
Quebec, this will account for the Increase In the estimated cost of the line.
"If thels Increase amounts to three
or four million dollars. It ts time the
public demanded some explanation. The
quickest way for the government to
find out It the classification allowed ls
extravagant or not will be tor tbe minister of railways to ask for monthly reports of the G. T. P. engineers who are
stationed on the Wnnipeg and Quebec
districts. Messrs. Mann, Heaman and
Armstrong. Before I left Kenora, I said
to an engineer who knows about Quebec classification, that there would
surely be a big scandal over It, He replied that any Investigation would be
blocked. Let the government ask for
reports and opinions of engineers who
are safeguarding the G. T. P. ln this
and judge for themselves If M. Parent
is correct in his standard of classification or extravagance."

It u*ok a few days tor the MacJiine
pressof Canada to recover from the
.staggering blow of the report of the
civil service comuiibbiou. it la hardly
oecessary io recapitulate the turiiis of
Uiat report. So heavier indictment
baa ever been to und against any Canadian government. We have had tne
J'aciiic Scandal, the "'Steel Kail Steal, '
and the Tarte-.vlcGreevy charges, and
each time a cabinet haa been driven
from office, liui never before baa it
heen revealed thai a whole party 01-
-ganuuUon, including the members or
the cabinet, was in league with thie.es
to despoil the country.
After the dial gasps of helplessness
the .Machine tried desperately to iind
a reply. There was something hysterical about the eulogy ol Sir Wilfrid
Laurier's courage in risking tiie investigation. There was only imbecility in
Mr. AyJcsWorth's "Liberal sheep and
Tory goats." A plausible defence and
one apparently sincere has since been
found. This is iu an apparently frank
admission of lhe existence of evil, u
deploring ot it, a charge that it is peculiar to no party and au appeal to all
patriots to crush it.
The local Liberal organ quotes the
Toronto World I rather remarkable, not
(hat our contemporary should quote its
editorial, but thai it should ijuute the
Toronto World) to the effect that the
only hope of salvation is In the organization of an independent party.
Thai W. K. Maclean, editor and proprietor of the World, should advocate
an independent party is not at all surprising. Uut Canadians will not rind
the   solution   of  their problem   there.
Conservatives wfl admit In all frank-
ziess aud  humility, that their own par
ty history is stained with wrong doing.
Hut there are depths to which they
have never sunk. No Conservative leader has ever pleaded, alter twelve
years of power, that he has not bad
time to reform his service, nor has the
rank and lile of the Conservative party ever been degraded to a mere machine for blocking investigation and
shielding   thieves   from   exposure.
But even this last desperate and
feeble reply that the Liberals have
found has already beeu swept avvu\ bi
the damning evidence of Major Hodgins.
Major Arthur Jiudgius' name needs no
introduction to Nelson leaders. He has
bad a distinguished military and professional career. His connection with
the building of the Grand Trunk Pa-
ciiic is well known, and al! efforts of
Liberal ministers, members and editors
to hide the reason for his dismissal
have failed. Defeated in his effort to
secure a fair hearing by the Dominion
cabinet Major Hodgins has by open tetter  addressed   the   people  of  Canada.
When he was last in Nelson, jU8t
after hhj dismissal. Major Hodgins remarked to friends that the last seven
years he had been lighting Boers in
Africa and Liberal politicians in Canada, aud that for white man's lighting
he   preferred   the   Boers.
He is now tilling Canada of hia experience. He refused to learu "tlie
Quebec system" of treating contractors:
Id plain English, be refused to be a
party to wholesale stealing and there
was no longer room for him In the service. The Influence of the thieves was
all powerful, and an honest gentleman
had   to   go.
No  one   in   Canada   will   dare  to   Im-
in otic:��3.
A general meeting of the shareholders of the Imperial Coal & Coke Company, Limited, will he held at the office of the Company, Room "S, Sovereign Bank Building, Montreal, Thursday, the Thirtieth day of April. 1008,

peach the honesty of Major Arthur Hodgins. His Indictment is preferred in
straight soldier fashion. He charges
that millions have been stolen from the
people of Canada with the knowledge
and connivance or the- ministers who
are   responsible.
Now.  wait for the Machine's reply.
The announcement of the death of
Sir Henry Campbell-Baunerman will
cause sorrow but not surprise. His

of duty and love of country.
it is too earl] to attempt to find bia
place in the ranks of Britain'a great
dead. U it will be determined by future historians, but his place In the esteem and i>-p;.i:d of his oontemporaries
is already fixed. Deficient as he undoubtedly was in many of the arts of
th. statesman, and even of the political leader, he has performed a seem-
tagl] Impossible tasta by sheer Force of
.: bonest). absolute loyalty to
principles, to friend and foe, and by
Um magic of a kindly, old-fashioned
Scottish courtesy that conquered even
in   Uie   bitterness   of   political   strife.
It is DOt given to every generation to
pioduce a Pitt, a Disraeli or a Salisbury, but the race that'can produce a
succession of Campbell-Bannermans is
fai   from the road to decadence.
Ii the dead statesman's fortune has
not been to leave any great constructive work as his monument, his hold
on the hearts of Britain is ?till secure.
He haa maintained at its highest the
ideals of unfaltering self-sacrifice, of
unhesitating obedieuce to the call of
duty and of self-immolation on the
country's altar, which are the crowning
glory of the British  race.

Fire Is the greatest enemy the forest
has; and, before it Is worth while attempting uny scientific management of
the forests, some moans must be put
in Operation Cor keeping the iires out of
it, so that thore may be some certainty of our having a forest to manage.
Tho auititiut of damage- done to forests
by liri-H iu times beloro any protective
system was established is simply incalculable, it has often boon said, and probably even falls short of the truth, Uiat
lor every dollar's worth of timber taken by the lumbi'rmori trom tbe valley
of the Ottawa river, one of Canada's
greatest lumbering districts, tiros have
destroyed  ton   dollars'   worth,
Most in evidence is tho destruction
done by crown" Hies, files which get
up into the toliage of the trees, in
many tracts ot the wooded districts or
Canada mile alter mile of country has
beeu Swept over by such a lire, and
uf what was once a thrifty, green forest
only blackened stumps and tree trunks
lemain. Sometimes uie consequences
aro even more serious, and much lire
and property ls destroyed. The Mira-
michi. N. Li., (ire of October, lolio, destroyed 100 lives and a quarter of a
million pounds sterling, in property;
and two such flres in Wisconsin���the
Peshtigo fire of 1871 and the Hinckley
fire of 1894���were responsible for the
loss of 1,600 lives and many millions of
dollars'   worth   of   property.
A vast amount of loss is also done by
"ground" and "surface" fires, fires
which burn in the soil of the forest or
run along tho surface and lick up the
dead leaves ond other debris of tho
forest. While not much timber is consumed by the fire itself, the fire damages the bases and roots of the trees,
and through the wounds thus made
fungi gain entrance to the tree and
cause the rotting of the wood. In parts
of tbe largest Dominion forest res ewe
I the Riding Mountain reserve, in Manitoba), especially among the aspen or
white poplar, three out of every four
trees are found to be damaged iu this
way. The area has been repeatedly
burned over; the trees were thus wounded, the fungus spores gained entrance
and  the   above  result  followed.
Insects may also gain access to tree
trunks in this way.
lu view of these facts the importance
of tire protection in the forest can easily be realized. The great thing to be
done is to discover and put out the fire
before it gets a start, and this is the
great aim of the fire patrol systems
instituted by the Dominion and several
of the provincial governments.���Canadian Forestry Association.
