Development Work Pushed During Lull
In Shipments���Quotations en the
Stock Markets.
The week in mining ae is natural at
this season of the year, has seen little
new development. The scarcity of coal
and the difficulties ot transportalon
have had the effect of materially reducing shipments. But ln the big mines
advantage has been taken of thc quietness in demand for shipments to get
well ahead with development work.

the work of development and equip

the middle of February will Bee shipments.

Meeting Enthusiastic for McBride
Liberal Candidate had Nothing to
Offer but Repetition of Charge
of C.P.R, Influence
(Special to The Dally Canadian.)
Greenwood, B. C, Jan. 18.���The political interest In Greenwood was
brought to lis highest pitch when
Premelr McBride, W. J. Bowser and the
three local candidates appeared before
a gathering in the auditorium tonight.
It waa by far tbe largest public meeting ever held in this town and when it
was all over, all tbat was left for either
Liberal or Socialist, was such satisfaction as can be obtained from a minority
report. The great majority made itself
felt In favor of E. J. Warren, the Conservative nominee. It approved tn unmistakable tones the record of the McBride government;rendered a verdict of
not guilty on the Liberal indictments
and called for a continuance of Ihe
present administration
Dr. Spankle occupied the chair and
the speakers were G. R. Naden, Liber-
al; E. V. Dynes, Socialist; E. J. Warren, Conservative candidate; Hon.
Richard McBride and W. J. Bowser.
The address of the Liberal candidate was much the sume as has been
heard all over the province. It consisted merely of accusing the government of being controlled by the C. P.
R., and having been guilty of some
questionable deals, principally the
Kaien island case.
The Socialist announced his opposition to both parties and appealed to
the workingman to elect one who
would, first last and always, consider
the Interests of the producer before that
of the capitalist.
Mr. Warren said he was proud to be
a candidate and pledged to support a
government with Buch a record as the
present one had made. His Interests
wore in the riding and if he were elected he would always be found ready and
anxious to do his best to secure for
Greenwood what was coming to it.
Mr. Bowser made one of the best
speeches the electors of this constituency have ever heard. His comprehensive recital of the work the government had done in bringing the prov-
nce out of bankruptcy Into a highly satisfactory condition was listened to most
attentively, while his exposure of the
shallow tactics of the opposition and
his arraignment of W. W. B. Mclnnes
and olher Liberals swept all the neutrals into line of opposition to Ottawa
interference and partizan demonstrations by employees of the Dominion
Premier McBride put the finishing
touches to the work of silencing disturbers and winning the impartial
voters. In the frankest manner possible he took up the various indictments
of Liberate against his government and
offered a defense that was accepted as
complete and satisfactory in the highest
degree. He convinced Iho audience
that the Kaien Island deal was beneficial to the province and was proof
against the attacks of scandal mongers.
He dealt with the Columbia & WcBtern
Land grant, thc cancellation of Ihe Midway & Vernon charier, the School Act
and other Issues out of which hiB opponents have endeavored to make political capital and won nn almost unanimous approval of lho conduct of his
administration throughout.
His appoal for a continuance of confidence in his government as against
an untried. Inexperienced nnd questionable combination of falrweather politicians met with a response lhat brought
Joy lo the hearts of the Conservative
workers and left Liberals and SociallBts
In sore despair.
Attell Retains Title.
Los AngeleB, Jan. 19.���Attell laat
night won from Harry Baker ln the
eighth round of the featherweight
championBhlp. Baker's seconds threw
up thc sponge. The champion was In
great form and outclassed his man
from Btart to finish. The fight was a
fiiBt one but Attell was too strong for
the San Francisco boy. Attell used
every fistic strategy. His footwork
wna lightning fast throughout. linker's
ducking and covering up saved him for
a few rounds. Thc seventh round

Provincial  Nominations.

Socialists Not Quitters.
The presence of Comrade Ben
Wilson on the Socialist platform
tonight does not depend upon the
punctuality of the Crow's Nest
train; he will arrive via Spokane.
Frank Phillips requests the
statement that there will be a
meeting In the opera house tonight whether Mr, Wilson arrives
or not. The Socialists of Nelson
are not dependent upon outside
speakers. Arrangements will be
made to bring Mr. Wilson to the
hall direct from the Mountain station If his train is late, more
time will be available for local
speakers, including tbe Conservative and Liberal candidates, or
their representatives, who are assured absolutely fair treatment ,',
in respect of time and attention.
Mr. Phillips resents    what   he j'
considers an effort to keep electors away from  the  meeting by
suggesting a doubt as to its being held.

Collision In Channel.
Dover, Jail. 19.���The Red Star liner
Vandcrland collided with and sank the
Dundee steamer Narworlh Castle, four
miles of tho South Goodwin lightship,
during tho night. So far as is known
only ihree members of the Narworth
orew of twenty are missing. The Van-
derland's bow Is damaged below the
waterllne and her forepeak Is full ot
water, but the bulkhead remained tight
so that there Is no danger of the vessel sinking. The news of the accident
reached here ln a wireless message
from South Goodwin. A dense fog prevailed In the channel all night long,
hut it cleared away by daylight.

Silverton Sketch of Tory
William Hunter Natural Representative of the Riding and Certain
of Election
(Special to The Dally Canadian.)
Silverton, Jan. 18.���The candidature
of William Hunter Is approved and endorsed by the whole of Slocan Riding,
and the vigorous personal canvass he
Is making meets with few refusals'
and even those are given reluctantly
by men who are pledged to the Liberal
or Socialist candidate.
William Hunter ls known personally
to every man ln the riding. He has
been In the Slocan since Its earliest
days and the worst periods of depression found him working on, talking
cheerfully and encouragingly' and helping, generously every man that needed
and, deserved help.
He has been a steamboat owner,
mine operator ami bit c .act, snd has
been successful ln every capacity.
There is no other man whose Interests
are so entirely bound up with those
of the district.
To sll the business Interests of the
district and to all the permanent settlers who own their properties, Mr.
Hunter Is the natural representative.
The working miners, on the other
hand, are not likely to forget that ln
the dark days of the strike, William
Hunter's stores were open and credit
was not refused to those In need.
William Hunter has not an enemy in
thei Slocan. Many a man owes him
a debt of gratitude for favors given
ungrudgingly and never recalled. These
things weigh more In a constituency of
miners with rough hands and warm
hearts than strict'allegiance to Inherited party bonds, or a general approval
ol any programme for the amelioration
of human nature at large.
By his incorruptible honesty, by his
public spirit, and by the business capacity he has shown in a hundred
ways, William Hunter Ib entitled to
the support of every man ln the Slocan, and he will get lt.
Liberal Candidate for Fernie Snowed
Under In Municipal Fight.
(Special to The Daily Canadian. )
Fernie, Jan. 18.���The municipal elections were held last night Th eresults
were as follows:
For Mayor���Dr. S. Bonnell, 115; A.
W. Bleasdell, 110.
For Aldermen, elected���J. D. Qulel,
134; A. Stork, 123; J. L. Mclntyre, 122;
A. a Trlaes, 114; W. W. Tuttle, 113;
J. L. Gates, 104.
Defeated���Thos. Beck, 100: S. Ora-
hnm, 96; W. M. Dicken, 89; 8. F. Wallace, 85; Thos. Biggs. 76; O. N. Ross,
51; W. Kummer, 16.
For School Trustee���E. L. Wriggles-
The opponents of last year's council
were upon the whole victorious, electing the mayor and three out of six aldermen. They were not able to elect
all their men, however, some of the
candidates on ahe ticket proving too
heavy a load for them lo carry. Among
these the mosl notable was W. M.
Dicken, the Liberal candidate In the
provincial elections. In spite of the
earnest advice of many of his friends,
he persisted In staying In the municipal
fight after he was nominsted for the
legislature, with the result that, by
coming a iwor ninth In a field of 13,
he has destroyed whatever prestige he
may have had as nominee of the Liberal party. It Is now admitted by every
one that he Is not a factor In the coming election, and the Liberal leaders
realise what a fatal mistake was made
in not dragging hlm out of the municipal field by main force.
In consequence of this complete col-
lapBe of the Liberal campaign there Is
great activity in labor circles. There
are rumors galore of candidates that
are to be put Into the field by that
party, which somewhat resembles Ar-
temus Ward's militia company, every
member of which was anxious to be a
major-general. Most of thoso prominent in the party feel their bosoms
swelled with the strong desire for political glory, that last Infirmity, of
noble minds. In consequence of the
multiplicity of asplrantB, and also
troubles with the Socialists, they have
been nnnble so far to put a candidate
in tho field, but it Is practically certain
that they will d oso.   The result will
be that, while the Conservaalves are
solid behind "Billy" Ross, the opposition vote will be spilt in three. It Is
safe to say that a labor candidate will
draw little or no strengah from the
Conservative ranks, while he will probable take a number of Liberal and Socialist votes.
Collision on the Big Four Road Near
Chicago���Several  Killed.
Chicago, Jan. 19.���A telephone message from Lafayette, Ind., early today,
reports a serious wreck on the Big
Four road at Fowler, Ind, Passenger
train No. 39, eastbound, collided with
a freight train at that station and tt is
counted for, if they are In the burning
reported that a nnmber of persons
were killed. Train No. 38 left Chicago
at 11:30 o'clock last night and was due
at Fowler at 2:30 a. m. The train Is
known as the Queen City Special and
carries a sleeper car and day coach
from Chicago to Cincinnati and a Bleep-
er car from Chicago to Indianapolis.
A later telephone message from Lafayette says some of the wrecked ears
took fire from the engine and for this
reason some bodies may not be accounted (or if they are ln the burning
wreckage. The crews of both engines
are missing and their bodies are supposed to be under the wreckage. All
available physicians are being summoned. Fowler ls "' miles west of Lafayette. V-n^MtVHie car of Vice President <?.*Ti. Schaafe, of the Big Four,
was attached to the rear of the train.
It was not damaged and the Injured
people were put on board to be taken
to Kankakee, III. The first car behind the baggage car was a combination coach, and It was torn to splinters. One of the passengers who escaped with his life from this car reported that there were 21 other passengers in this coach. He believes
they escaped, as only one body has ao
far been recovered, that of a fireman,
who wins crushed to death.
County Court
John Robinson appeared before Hla
Honor Judge Forln this morning for

money for safekeeping from a drunken

charge was at once dismissed and the
accused was honorably discharged.

Liberals Hopelessly Divided and Labor
and Socialist Parties at Odds-
Easy for W. R. Ross.
(Special to The Daily Canadian.)
Fernie, Jan. Ik.���The account published ln the Nelson News of William
M. Dicken'e nomination as the Liberal
candidate for Fernie gives one not conversant with the facts an Idea that that
gentleman Is a political Moses. Nowhere in this province is there so much
dissension among Liberals as ln Fernie, and the breach ls widening. Tbe
staunchest Liberals pass one another
without speaking. It is a war between
what are kndwn as coal company and
anti-coal company Liberals. Dicken Is
considered a strong coal company man,
wherefore he ls persona non grata with
the other element.
Among workingmen he seems to
meet with nothing but condemnation,
aa, though R Is contended that he took
an Issue that resulted his way, he le
charged with having done so under an
influence which Is supporting him at
the present alme. That he will be Ig-
nomlniously defeated not even his
strongest supporter will honestly deny.
At the so-called convention which nominated tilth seven persons had refused
the candidature plum. But Dicken, offered lt as a dernier resort, snapped
greedily at the bait as a hungry trout
takes the elusive fly. If there were
wanting a true sign of his weakness It
is In the fact that he was on Thursday
badly defeated as a candidate for alderman of the city of Fernie. He came
very nearly being at the foot of the
poll. Liberals had tried, some of them,
very hard to dissuade him from running for every thing In sight, feeling
that his defeat In a municipal campaign would mean an augury of the
same resula In the provincial contest,
but Dicken stubbornly stood by wbat
Is called by many the coal company
ticket. Efforts are being made to call
this man off and replace him by some
one who possesses more strength. A
large number of electors prevailed upon Mr. L. P. Eckstein to cancel his
trip to the coast aud consider a nomination as au Independent Liberal.
That gentleman has decided to adhere to his resolution to remain out of
politics and attend to his exclusive
law practice. It looks, aherefore, as
If the fight will be between W. R. Ross
and the Socialist candidate, as Dick-
en's candidature Is regarded as more
of a bad Joke than anything else.

Ottawa Gang Tried to Give
Grand Trunk  Pacific Pirates Still
After Land���Mainstay oi Local
Opposition Campaign
(Special to The Dally Canadian.)
Victoria, Jan. 18.���The government
has turned the table on the opposition
neatly over the matter of the Kaien
Islsnd deal. The Dominion government, by playing into the hands of Ite
favorites, tbe Qrand Trunk Pacific railway, ceded certain Indian reserve land
to the railway company, but on the provincial government being applied to to
sanction tbe tnuufer.lt refused, claiming reversionary rights. The landa Involved comprise 13,000 acrea surrounding the townsite of Prince Rupert. The
McBride government refused to approve
of the Dominion order-in-council, on the
ground that the Grand Trunk Pacific
has already got sufficient of the public
domain. This action on the part of the
government accounts for the energy displayed by the "machine," assisted by
the Orand Trunk Pacifc to down McBride.
The successful efforts made by the
McBride government to stimulate the
development of the timber Industry 1*
another phase ot Its policy which
should receive the indorsation of all '
having the interests of the province at
heart. Aa a direct result of the imposition of a practically prohibitive restriction upon the export of logs there
bas been a remarkable movement of
capitalists In thla direction, the majority making heavy investments.
A number ot new mills have been es-
tabliahed, the yearly cut of lumber has
increased proportionately aad the
amount of the flalshed product shipped
to the outside market has advanced to .
a marked degree.
Never before in Its history haa the
province derived so much good from Its
timber resources aa has been the case
during the past three years previous to
the enactment ot the regulations which
stopped the sending of rough lumber
from the shores of British Columbia to
the American aide for manufacture.
The establishments located at the board
centres of the Bound were flourishing.
They obtained almost ail their raw materials from the forests of British Columbia. Thus, a'hough this country
furnished the means by wblch the Industries mentioned were maintained,
only a comparatively small amount of
money was expended on this side of the
boundary line. The preaent premier
and his colleagues recognised the Injury to the province ot such a condition of affairs and they Immediately
took steps to prevent the continuance
ot the wholesale absorbtlon of timber.
The measure whtcb was Introduced
and carried through the honse was effective. It put a atop to the practice
and although for a short time lt upset
the established order ot things and
naturally was subjected to some criticism It soon became eveldent that the
authorities had correctly guaged the
situation. They had foreseen that the
Americans, finding that tbey were unable to have the raw material they required brought to them, would hove to
come to It. This Is exactly what happened. That the result Is proving exceedingly beneficial to British Columbia
is beyond doubt.
At present the American capitalists
are establishing their mills on this side
of Ihe boundary, and what Is more, they
are entering into the Industry upon a
larger scale than heretofore. This is attributable doubtless to the fact that
they are beginning to realise how Illimitable are the timber resources of
Hritish Columbia, and how easily the
finished product may be disposed of
profitably In the growing provinces aod

more to J. A. MacdonaUi's Kaien Jslan-1
lolly. The facts of the case are now
ko well known to moBl that it should
not be necessary to recall them at all.
Mr. Macdonald himnelf has so far recovered ihai his only grievance is that
Ihe transfer to the railway company
was made by order-in-council, Instead
of by an act of the legislature. Bul
scores of humble understudies of Mr.
Macdonald in many ridings, lacking
either the hiduslry or the imcUigoncv
to study the whole transaction from
the evidence al first hand, si ill continue to rave about a land steal, a semi
da!, outrage, grail, etc., ad nauseam.
The facts, as given in the official
records���the reporl of the oommittoe���
are aa follows:
"On ihe ;;int day of January, 1!MH'��,
on the motion of Mr. .1. A. Mactionald,
seconded by Dr. King, it was Resolved:
I'That a select committee, consisting of five members   of   this house,
namely: Messrs. Garden, Ynung. Ross,
Munro and lhe mover, be appointed to
inquire into all matters pertaining to
the acquisition, or attempted acquisi
tlou, by the Orand Trunk Pacific Hallway company, or by any olher person
or persons, or bodies corporate, of
ctown lands in the viclnoily of Tuck's
Inlet, Kaien Island, or other islands,
and on the mainland in the vicinity of
Kaien Island, with power to summon
witnesses, call for papers, documents,
letters, telegrams and records, and to
take evidence under oath, and procure
the printing of snid evidence from day
to day, and report all evidence from
time to time to the house, together
wiih their findings on the same."
"Pursuant to said order, a meeting
of your committee was held on the 2nd
of February, 1906, and since that date
fifteen meetings were held and eight
witnesses examined. All witnesses re-
qtisted to be called appeared and gave
evidence, with the exception of Pter
Larsen of Helena, Mont., who excused
himself on account of illness, and K.
W. Morse, of the Grand Trunk Pacific
Hallway company, Montreal, who excused himself on account of pressure
of  business.
"No subpoenas were issued for these
witnesses, as your committee were advised by ihe deputy attorney general
that we possessed no powers over extra-provincial witnesses.
All evidence given was taken fn
shorlhand and a copy of Ihe transcribed notes Is transmitted herewith, along
wllh the exhibits produced or copies
thereof, as well as telegrams and copies, etc., despatched and received by
the committee.
"Although no restriction was piacod
on the scope of the inquiry, the only
lands in the vicinity of Kaien Island
about which questions were asked were
lhe following: Lots 44_, 444, 251. 450,
4411, 447. 44S, 449, 601, 602, 603, 505,
607, ln Range V., Coast district.
i. Your oommlttee find ihat I_ots
44:i, 444 and 251, comprising, approximately, 10,000 acres, were acquired by
the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway company undei the provisions of an Order
in Council dated 30th April, J904, and
approved by his honor on May 4th,
1904. passed under ihe authority of section 39 or the Laud Act, which latter
date is hereinafter referred to us the
date of acquisition.
"The lands In question were oiigi***
nally attempted to be acquired by one
Peter Larsen, with whom was associated as a partner or employee one James
Anderson, apparently with the object
of ultimately transferring the same to
ihe said Grand Trunk Pacific Railway
eompany. The terms of the proposed
acquisition are outlined in a letter from
K. V. Bodwell, dated January 19th, 1904.
2. Your committee find that, after
receipt of tlie leater Inquest Ion. the
Executive Council refused to deal with
any intermediaries ln the matter, but
stuted that they would only deal direct
with the all way company. Upon being made aware of this decision, Mr,
Bodwell, on ahe 29th of April, 19U4, secured and produced to the Executive
a telegram from C. M. Hays, president
of the company, authorising hlm (Bodwell) to act for (he company In the
transaction under review, and on the
following day the Order in Council was
passed by the Executive, which was
subsequently approved by his honor.
In pursuance thereof, crown giants for
the lands in question were in due
course aud upon payment of the purchase money ($10,000.00) by the railway company, duly issued to (he said
railway company.
3. Your committee find (hat (he
company acquired these lands in accordance with the terms of the Order
in Council, and di alt for the same directly with the government, as stated
by the members thereof who were
called to give evidence.
4. Your committee find that section
39 of the Land Act gives ample author-,
ity for the Order in Council in question,
and the crown grants for Lots 443, 444
and 251, in Range V., issue din pursuance thereof, were properly so issued
and delivered to the company.
5. Your committee find lhat the
railway company paid to the province
the sum of $10,000, the purchase money
agreed upon by the terms of the Order
in Council, and in addition thereto re-
pad to Peter Larsen a portion of the
moneys paid out by him for surveys,
said to be about $S,000."
Two of the later clauses are:
"21. Your committee find that the
land comprised in Lots 443, 444 and
251, Range V., is third-class land within the meaning of the Land Act, and
the statutory price of the same, under
said Act, is one dollar per acre.
"Your committee find that there is no
reason to look, for any Immediate enhancement of (he value of these lands,
except such as may arise by the creation of a transcontinental railway terminal on Kaien Island, and that the future value of said lands must depend
entirely on the operations of the company. ,.._.-*
"22. Your committee find that no
member of official of the government
received direct or indirect emolument
or reward in connection with any of
the matters inquired into, or any direct or indirect promise of same in the
future, and ihat the members of the
government were actuated solely by a
desire (o secure (0 the province every
advantage obtainable under the circumstances."
The report was presented to the legislature on March 7th, 1_0C, that is,
about five months after the committee
was named. It wa_j signed only by
the chairman, J. F. Garden, but was
assented to by Dr. Young and W. R.
Ross. J. A. Macdonald and C. Munro
dissented and presented a minority re-
The committee was asked for, and its
members named, by J. A. Macdonald,
seconded by Dr. King.
Now, there are a few considerations
that will occur to the most casual and
disinterested reader.
If any man knows the whole circumstances of the aransactlon, it is Frank
Morse, vice president and general manager of the G. T. P. company, who declined to appear before the commission.
The G. T. P. company, as is known to
all, asked for many concessions and
was refused. For that reason ,as well
as because It Is part and parcel of the
Ottawa machine, (hat company wishes,
and is working strenuously for, the defeat of ahe McBride government.
Now, -had "the governmenl or any
member of It, been guilty of corruption in connection with the (ransaction,
that fact would have been known to
Mr. Morse, and would have been a
whip in his hand, wherewith to com
pel (he granting of his demands, and
that It would have been used as such
no one can doubt.
Further, if Mr. Morse knew now of
any guilty conduct on the part of a
member of the British Columbia gov
erument, he known that he has only to
allow It to be known to ensure the defeat of thai governmenl, which Is now
the chief object of his company.
What stronger proof can any reasonable man require of the entire honesty
of (he transaction?
J. A. Macdonald at the opening of
the campaign Issued a manifesto. Dr.
Hall, J. Fred Hume and John Keen
have each issued a manifesto. Presumably every Liberal candidate has
done the aame, each In his own riding.
Even those that have been published
In Nelson do not agree on all points,
but that Is a minor matter. None of
them agree In any respect with the
last official manifesto of the provincial
Liberal party. Dr. Hall, for instance,
criticises Mr. McBride for delay In formulating a railway policy. J. Fred
Hume declares against aid to any railway enterprise in any form. Now, If
a government Is debarred from offering any encouragement to railway construction, how can it have a railway
policy at all?    Really, the 42  Liberal

leaders should have held a conference
before issuing iheir manifestos.
The opposition organs naturally deny
lhat Iheir party is in alliance with
either the Grand Trunk Pacific pirates
or the Otlawa machine. Of course
they deny it; they must deny it. Confession, even by silence, would ruin
their candidates in every constituency.
Ilm the evidence is loo strong. Willie
Mclnnes has given up $12,011(1 a year
and pickings: Alex Henderson has glveu up a county courl judgeship worth
$3000 a year���rather more than twice
as much as he would command as a
practising barrister. John Oliver neglects his farm to orate. J. A. Macdonald can afford lo neglect his legal
practice. Al] are travelling round the
province at considerable expense���
Willie especially is an open-handed
hotel guest. Who finds the funds?
Senator Bostock. for many years the
easy milch-cow- for British Columbia
Liberals, Is utterly exhausted. The
coal companies are out of provincial
politics. We have the authority of the
Nelson Daily News for the statement
that the C. P. R., the Great Northern
and the Canadian Northern are all
paying tribute to Mr. McBride, what
for, we are not informed. There only
remains then the Grand Trunk Pacific
to feed hungry Liberals. That company's motive In trying to defeat Mr.
McBride are sufficiently  obvious.
At last we have induced our esteemed contemporary to mention Dr.
Hall editorially. Hut the brief mention
accorded hlm. which merely repeats
what we said long ago about bis courage, is not exactly the sort of encouragement the doctor needs, lt is injudicious as well as unkind to tell a man
that he "may not be an eloquent
speaker," when hp Is obviously doing
his best, and is as obviously inspired
hy the faith and hope that some day
in the long hereafter���when he has
been four years in the house���he will
be a real orator. We on the contrary,
have nothing but praise for the doctor.
The first stages of development are
not particularly enjoyable, hut if the
doctor rpally thinks it is doing him
any good we are ready 1o endure.

Call of tha Create* of the Apostles���
Service, for Tomorrow In the
City Churchea.
Tomorrow will bo tbe second Sunday
after the Epiphany. Friday of next
week commemorates the conversion of
St Paul. Instantaneous conversion has
long been a controversial subject. It
seems contrary to the regular method
or nature, yet to all thinking people are
po: a .ly conscious at times of sudden
Illumination, mental or spiritual, or
Hut the case of Saul ot Tarsus ls
unique. He had been not only a vigorous but a bitter and ruthless defender
of the old order and persecutor of tbe
new. He had been present at thc stoning of St. Stephen. His conscience had
first been In his work, but there is
Internal evidence that just before his
conversion he had been disturbed by
doubts. Finally on the road to Daman
cus as recorded by himself, he was
struck by a blinding light, and the
voice of Ood Himself called him to be
an apostle for the faith he had Btrlv
en to destroy.
The gospel for tomorrow contains
St. John's narrative of the marriage
feast In Cana ,and Christ's first miracle, the turning of water Into wine.

ed at the various churchea for tomorrow:
