of independent political action in an

parliament and provincial legislatures.
Others are inclined to oppose the plan.

Imperial Decree Promises Changed Laws
Dowager Empress Issues a Decree
Identical With One Causing
Boxer Uprising*
Shanghai, China, Bept 17.���A oom*
patent authority on the Far Kast declares that the Chinese have math;
more progress during the last flv<;
years than any other nation, not ex-
CepUng Japan. He wuya that China
has not made such advances In iron
and ooal production as the United
States ,bnt he contends that China
has made a wider and more profound
Western civilization than haa any
other nation.
The latest proof that China's face
iu set toward progress is found ia the
Imperial decree issued last Sunday,
promising a change of laws. While
this decree does not promise a constitution as careless readers have inferred, nevertheless It is pointed in
that direction.
A more vital indication of progress
is found in the recent Imperial decree
making some mastery of western learn*
ti_K a condition of future employment
ln the government service. This decree -does not affect existing office
holders, and does ont apply to candidates for office who have already completed the prescribed course of compound learning and have received the
first and second degrees. But the significance of the decree Is found In the
fact that it prescribes the identical
condition for candidates for office
which the young emperor prescribed
eight years ago and which led to the
lk>xer uprising. It is significant that
the Dowarger Kmpress who then decried the young emperor for his radicalism now issues, In his name, the Identical decree which produced the

Duke Discovert New River.
New York, Sept. 17���A special to
the Herald from Marseilles says the
Duke ot Arbrussle haa arrived there,
and has just made tbe announcement
that one of the moat important scientific results achieved in his latest explorations ln the Interior of Africa la
the discovery of a river never before
described In any geography. He marked its course and measured its flow
and volume.
I      li I
Poplar Creek district, famous
throughout the continent for rich
prospects, which for the three years
that have passed since their first discovery, have remained mere proapects,
Ib now on the eve of a new development.
So far the only development done
has been by the labor of the owners
ot the claims. With no capital and no
facilities for treatment or shipment,
they have accomplished wonders.
The second era of mining tn Poplar,
that of operations on a large scale
and treatment of ore on the ground,
will begin this fall. W. B. Pool, the
discoverer of Poplar and at one time
the controller of many of Its richest
claims, is the author of the new departure.
A syndicate organized' by him haa
taken over from A. Buffalo, the Buffalo mines on Poplar Creek, within 300
yards of the line of the Lardeau-Ger-
ra.d branch of the C. P. R. ,
The Buffalo mines were bonded in
1904 by Finch and Campbell; a tunnel
was driven 50 feet and crosscuts wllh
a total length of between 400 and 500
feet were runh on the lead.
Then came lawsuits, the curse ot
mining ln Kootenay, and the apecla!
bane of Poplar district. Finch and
Campbell threw up the property in
disgust and tt haa remained Idle ever
The Buffalo contatna a ledge of free
milling gold ore varying In width from
5 to 15 feet. Assays of samples taken
across tbe vein, where It la II feet
wide, returned 123 to the ton, and a
central vein, 18 inches wide, showed
f 108. Random specimens are found as
rich of those of the Lucky Jack and
The syndicate that haa now taken
over the property will pnt In a 10-
stamp mill at once. It has already
been secured, and shipment and Installation will begin within a week. A
camp will be formed and work prosecuted through the winter.

the president of the Milwaukee road,
was driving his automobile on Saturday he collided with Alfred Overland,
a passing bicyclist. The latter waa
thrown 50 feet, was picked up unconscious by Mr. Earllng, was rushed to
a hotel ln Mr. Earllng's auto and a
physician summoned. The doctor
found the man's skull fractured at the
buae of the brain. A Utile later Mr.
Earllng, president of the Milwaukee
road, arrived at tbe hotel and ordered
every posslblo effort exerted to save
the man's life. He ordered a special
train from Milwaukee, carrying Dr.
Horace Manchester Brown, to the
stricken man's aid. It waa all In vain,
however, for Overland died yesterday.
His body will bo sent to hla former
home In Ohio.

Mr. Borden's qualified prouncement
ment in favor of the government own-
ei-ship and operation of railways and
other public utUiries has thrown the
Liberals in Canada into a state of consternation. This is evidenced by the
frenzied attempts that have been made
by the Liberal press to discredit Mr.
Borden's proposal and in doing so a
comparison has been made between
Mr. Bryan aud Mr. Borden. The comparison is unfortunate for the Liberals
because it is admitted that there is
no stronger man in the arena of American politics today than William Jennings Bryan. He is strong because
he is sincere and the people believe
in htm, lie is strong because be be-
Uerea In government control of railways and other public utilities. 11**
is strung because he believes in throttling the avarice of Mi** trusts and tbe
monopolist.) and bringing about a
more equitable distribution of the
products of nature and of ait. No
more threatening and dangoro.ua op-
ponent of ihe rapacity of the grafter
has appeared as a candidate for the
office oi president, In the blatorj ol
tbe United States.
It is, therefore, some comfort to
have Liberal journals comparing Mr.
Borden with the prospective candidate
for the presidency of the republic, and
gratifying to find so many points of
comparison in their respective platforms.
ll is true ihat Mr. Bryan's proposals
for government ownership of public
utiliites is being opposed hy the corporation pivss, even iif his own political laith. It is equally true that in
Canada Uie corporation owned press
of the Liberal party is doing the saint*
in the case of Mr. Borden, but on both
Bides  id   the   line,  wli.n   the   facta   ait
known, the electorate win nol in* misled. That Mr. Borden is to be taken
seriously is apparent, for uie Winnipeg Free I'ress, M, Clifford Siflon's
personal organ, takes steps to dlscred
ii Mr. Bordens' proposal, while a
newspaper, practically owned i��>
Messrs. Cox, Jaffray et ai., tin* magnates of the Crow's Nest Bass Coal
company, and published some dlstanqe
West of Winnipeg, echoes, parroilike.
Ihe refrain of the Kastern press.
* * *
These journals would like io make
it appear that Mr. Borden's proposals
are heretical from a Conservative
]M)ini  of view and  that  Mr. Borden is
departing from the traditions of his
party in standing for the rights of the
people. Ii is well known thai SS early
us 18611 Sir Charles Tupper had entered inlo contracts for a fast Atlantic
KieauiBhlp service which would he
practically a government owned fleet.
The principle involved in that contract
waH a long step in the direction ol
governmenl ownership of means or
transportation,     if   thut  contract   ha 1
been carried out. Canada would now
have ln her own name and possession.
a fleet surpassing in swiftness and
carryin- capacity, the fastest liners
that are afloat. Almost the first thing
Sir Wilfrid Laurier did on his accession to power, was to cancel that contract, thus showing how utterly he and
his party are out of sympathy with
the public ownership of public utilities.
The further reservation of the Gillies timber limits in the province oi
Ontario by the Conservative government there .immediately on its accession to power, is sufficient proof that
the policy is a fundamental one of the
Conservative party.
���     a     ���
The  Liberal  papers, however, imme-
dlately raise a false issue, as is their
habit, and   instead of honestly  facing
the  problems    confronting    statesmen
today, ask what lines does Mr. Borden
propose to expropriate?    What particular railroads for   instance   does   he
propose  io confiscate in his adoption
of the  principle of public ownership?
No greater mistake can be made  by
the Liberal press than to suppose that
.such   red herring  tactics  can   deceive
the intelligent electorate.    If the principle of public ownership is right, and
Mr.   Borden   has   said   it  is, then   the
question   is   not   one   of  confiscation
but of administration.   If the principle
is  right,  the method of its execution
is one of detail.    Mr. Borden has not
suggested  confiscation    or    expropriation.    It Is possibly the height of Lib-
' iai   ability   to  suggest   lhat   confiscation musl   follow  the adoption of the
principle involved in public ownership.
Perhaps  Liberals are incapable of Initiating measures looking to the adop-
t na oi  ilu*  principle  without  ihe objectionable    features    which    they    at
once project as an Insuperable barrier
to ihe adoption of ihe principle,    We
aie sure that Mr. Borden is not so Incapable and   we are furthermore sure
that Mr. Borden is too wise to commit
himself to the principle of public own-
ershlp without a clearly matured plan
of securing the people In their rights
withoul wronging anyone.    Thai lie is
obliged  to  disclose his  policy  at  this
Juncture, or to suggest that he can be
expected  to  do so, is simply  to give
evidence of childishness in maltors ot
���statesmanship.    The question  for  Liberal papers to answer is, is the principle of public ownership   of    public
uiillics a sound or unsound one?    Until  ihey  make some deliverance  upon
thai subject, all their attempts to trail
i��d herring aoross the track or ihrow
dust In tiio eyes of the people Is sure
lo   rati,     The   ISSUe  Is  a  straight   one
and  those  who  compare Borden  and
Bryan  will have to face it.
���    *    *
It   will  In- noticed  hy those who are
iii   tin* habit  of noticing, thai  in addition   iu  giving   utterance  to bis  si-nti-
meats on  public ownership, Mr.  Borden   Insisted   most   emphatically   upon
purity  In  elections  and  purity in ad-
mi'ilslralion.   The  great  speech   which
the  Liberals  criticized  wus as  full  or
(he latter  subject as of    the    former.
Yet we do not see any of the Liberal
papers applauding the sentiment  urging purity of elections nor of administration.    We do not wonder why.    In
(he  present   corrupt  condition  of  Lib-
i ral polilics in Canada, both as to elections and  administration, there would
be a hoarse laugh if purity were talked
of  by   the Liberal   press.     Mr.  Borden
is as sincere in one sentiment  as In
the other,  but  in order to draw aside
tie.* attention of ihe people from the
force of Mr. Borden's plea for pure
politics, the Liberal press must cry
"confiscation  and  expropriation."   The
Liberals may ns well recall an often
quoted maxim, that you can fool all
th*- |K*ople sometimes and some of the
people all the time, but you cannot
fool all the people all the time.
As an instance of the truth of this
maxim, the Liberals in lSyti made certain promises to the laboring class in
Canada, by which that class were deluded into sacrificing their birthright
and voting the Liberals into power. It
has been the proud boast of the Liberals, although an empty one, thai
they have been the laboring mens
friend par excellence. The laboring
men are now arousing to the fact that
tbey have been deceived and though,
led by specious pleading nnd further
promises and pledges, ihey have blind-
Ij followed the Liberal party through
a decade, the day of grace is over. A
Ictorla paper publishes with lamentation the remarks of a leading Liberal
politician, that the desertions of the
laboring classes from ihe ranks of the
Liberal party far exceeds that of those
from the Conservative ranks, in iv.ii.
it is admitted by him that the Socialistic, ranks an* being recruited from
among the ranks of ihe Liberals.
There can be no gainsaying the truth
of this conf'-ssion aud it is significant
because of the reflect ion which it
makes upon the Liberal party. It is
no wonder there Is consternation in
the ranks and tbal this last and wisest
move on the part of Mr, Borden sounds
the death knell of Liberal administration In Canada. That is why he is so
fiercely attacked.
The announcement made by Commissioner Coombes of the Salvation Army
at Winnipeg a few days ago, to the
effect that within a year the Army expects to bring out lOU.OOO immigrants
to Canada, is one calculated to arouse
the admiration of those who know ot
the good work of the Army. While
ihe practice of aiding foreign colonization of Doukhobors and Galicians in
the Northwest has not proved very
satisfactory, the operations of the
Army are conducted upon quite a different theory. Instwid of assisting
the emigration of indiscriminate pau-
p. r elements in European society and.
to use an expressive Western phrase.
"grubstaking" them till they overcome
their fanatical notions, the Salvation
Army makes careful individual selection of those to whom it tenders assistance in moving into Canada. More
than this, no person is degraded by
the assistance rendered him by the
Army, because it Is distinctly understood that lhe financial aid is only in
tlie form of a loan which must be repaid on easy terms by the member of
the colony receiving it. Thus Is the
manhoud of the immigrant saved; but
more than this, a spirit of self-reliance
is fostered and the immigrant selected
and aided under these conditions is
much more likely to prove a useful
member of society than one who comes
oui as a charity ward of the government
'l'h��* Salvation Army has an iul**n*st
im.* history, It has had to meet opposition, criticism, and even ridicule
from many quarters, but it is giving
increasing evidences of justification ol
lis evistence, In Its two forms of phil-
p_n thro ole  worki  that  of  reecnlna  the
.. . ���^MMMMMM__M_wr_ar_t
fallen and the one above mem ion'���
assisting deserving immigration, the
Army is rendering to Canada, England
and society sufficient service to merit
the most  generous support.

Gladstone, third son of the late William Kwart Gladstone, and brother of
Hou. Herbert Gladstone, tho British
homes secretary, who arrived In Wtnni-

before bis departure for the old land.
"The 1'Iasl meets the Wesl, anil thiols! World 'bo New." said Mr. Gladstone, "and the space of boundless waters [si In presenl days nniiibilati-il.
The reciprocal relations between the
mother land and the colonies are be-
Coming more genuine and more solid
every day. The chief reason for ibis
is fiiiuul ln lhe rapid development of
colonial enterprise and resources and
the favorable reaction In the mother
land from lhe effects of the Boer war.
Recovering from the influences of a

rapidly becoming more firmly eetab

"The reaction against Ihe policy of
Mr. Ghanfberlatn has been very stroni;
ansl his view of the fiscal question Is
becoming a dead issue. At the time

unfortunately for Mr. Chamberlain and
his followers a normal standard was
again evolved ami the people were not
slow to see the defects in the views of
the greal statesman, and detect tho
sinister influence It would have upon
the country. 1 do not believe that you
require any preference In Canada. The
preference we would accord you would
be too infinitesimal and rather uncom-
piiineii'tary to Canadian business in-
li'lllgi-nca-. The ftiRlish people believe
in a sound Imperialism, but to attempt
to maintain the llrlllsh empire on a
purely economic basis, antl that alone,
is a bad political argument inasmuch
as such a policy has no substantial
No belter system of emigration
from the British land to the colonies
could be inaugurated than Ihe present.
A purely state immigration policy advocated by any government would not

would nm advocate this. The man
who voluntarily leaves to seek a home
for  himself and  comes    lo     Western
Canada In the end forms the lu'st citizen. The alarmist lone which a few
years ago was prevalent in Knglnnd
regarding Canada has entirely disappeared tuul thousands of the middle
and comparatively well-io-do classes
are annually Isaving to seek their fortunes in Canada,'
"The problem of landing hundreds
of thousands of Immigrants, besides a
large transient Irade, In a country
where hundreds of miles are only
short distances, is one with which our
nii'ii British railways do nol cope, nml
