the alarming Increase in crime against

"From the evidence brought before

evident Ihnt considerable Illicit drink

drunkenness and crime go together is
well known. Such a condition of af-
fairs In our young and expanding

Profetior Lake Examines Fruit Farms
of Grand Forks and Lectures There.
(Special to The Dally Canadian.)
Grand Forks, Nov. 2.���A representative and exceedingly appreciative audience composed of farmers and busi-
ne Kb men assembled Wednesday evening In the Athletic association hall to
bear Professor Lake of Oregon speak
on fruit growing. M. Ilornsberger ably
filled the office of chairman of tbe
Tho first speaker was Martin Burrell, who among other things said thai
be was strongly ln favor or a board Of
horticulture, mainly to protect ioQul
fruit growers from the importation of
outside fruits. He Bpoke strongly in
favor of the present rigid fruit inspection that is practised at Grand Forks
and other points and commended tho
local fruit inspector on his action iu
condemning the car of 500 boxes of
apples a few days ago.
Professor Lake then addressed the
meeting at length. He spoke very positively about the possibilities of British Columbia and the Western states
as fruit producing sections and stated
that the first-class fruit grown in the
West far excelled anything produced
in tlie East. He had travelled all over
British Columbia and felt sure that
fruit could be profitably raised in the
province. He strongly recommended
tbe grower to confine himself to one
kind of fruit exclusively and tu select
soil at least eight feet deep, then plant
the trees about 25 feet apart, and not
grow any other produce on tbe same
ground; also to select trees at least
one year old. By doing this and using
care in spraying, fruit can be raised
Professor Lake produced some excellent samples of fruit raised on Kootenay lake, and one fine specimen
grown in the Okanagan district by an
Indian. He also spoke strongly In favor of the Canadian fruit inspectors
making rigid examinations of all Imported fruit, and announced that, by
their carrying out the law in this respect to the letter, the result would be
to put tho second-class American fruit
growers out of business and help the
first-class grower. He also surprised
the audience by stating that the fruit
inspectors of the Canadian Northwest
territories were not careful in their
fruit, inspections, and as a result the
territories for years past have been
the willing dumping ground and ready
market for great shipments of second
nnd  third  class American  fruits.
Before leaving Grand Forks Professor Lake wns driven to the various
fruit ranches in the valley by W. H,
Covert, the pioneer fruit king of this
valley. While visiting the Covert estate Professor Lake casually remarked
lhat tbe mammoth sunflowers grown
there wero a living evidence of the
richness of the soil, as they stood
some 12 feet high and the flowers were
IS Inches In diameter.
No Anglophobist.
Dundee, Scotland, Nov. 2.���The freedom of tho city wns today conferred on
Whitelaw Hold, the American ambassador. In the course of his speech
thanking the municipality the ambassador, referring to tho friendly relations between the United States and
Greal Britain, said the statesmen of
either country had no higher task than
In preserve them. When It Is remembered Ihnt nearly one-third of the entire trade of New York and nearly
hair the whole trade Of the United
States were with the British empire,
alt would recognize that (here wore
billions of reasons for maintaining and
perpetuating the present cordial relations.

Ute Indians Heroically Loot
Supply Wagons
Aborigines Cry Checkmate on Chess
Operations of U. S. Troops-
Must Await Fresh Supplies.
Sheridan, Wyo., Nov. 2.���Further de-
lulls of Ihe raiding of a government
Hiijjply train bound for the camps of
tho Tenth and Sixth cavalry from Ar-
vlda, characterise It as a clever piece
of work, evidently planned liy the older heads of the Ute tribe. According
to Driver .lames Forgln, no Indians
were in sight until a hunch of about
200 mounted redskins suddenly dashed out of a defile in the hills aud
quickly surrounded liim.
They made Utile noise outside of a
few sharp yells ln the nature of com-
iiisiiiils, and while several Indians kept
foraging under their rifles, the balance
looted the wagon train of 3000 pounds
of flour, the sacks of which were
strapped to the cayuses of Uie Indians,
who then disappeared into the hills.
As a result of tlie raiding of the supply train, the troops are in need and
the operations looking to a chase of
the Uii-s are practically at a standstill
until supplies can be had. More supplies will be sent out from Arvlda at
once. Troops from Fort Keogh with
suppplles are now at Ashland, en route
to the camp of the Tenth, near Moor-
The Utes have completely outwitted
the military and are now reported
back In Wyoming on the Powder river, retracing the route by which they
entered Montana. They evidently
knew of the arrival of the troops at
Ashlasnd and have cither given up the
attempt to reach the Cheyenr.es or are
waiting for that band to meet them
In some other part of the country. The
Utes on Hear creek have not moved,
according to telephone advices received here.
Halifax    Man    Who    Died      Recently
Leaves Much  to  Charity.
Halifax, N, 8., Nov. 2.���The will of
.lairus Mart, whose death took place on
October 27, was probated today. The
estate is estimated to be worth over
half a million. The great bulk of It
goes to benevolent and religious purposes. . Mount Allison university, of
which Mr, Hart was regent, will eventually receive $100,000, and the Nova
Scotia Methodist conference and the
Missionary society of Canada $100,000;

building fimd: the Halifax Citizens;
library, 110,000 for new books, and
$20,01111 for new Indies' college at
Mount Allison. The school for tho
blind  is also a  leading recipient.
Conservatives    Win    Phenomenal    Vic
tory Over Liberals    and    Progressives in London Elections.
London, Nov .2���The triennial clec-
lion of tho London borough councils
have resulled In nn overwhelming victory for ihe municipal reformers who
In some of the boroughs absolutely
wiped out the Progressives. The victors were formerly known ns Moderates and represent the Unionist party
and the Progressive, the Liberal and
Labor parties.
After several years of Progressive
regime, during which, It Is contended,
the taxes were increased to enormous
figures in consequence of the huge
expenditures, Including pnlatlal work-
honsos, Turkish baths for workmen
who sljsl not use Ihem, and clubhouses
and other similar municipal luxuries,
the boroughs councils aro once again
Htrongholds of Toryism.
The full figures are not yet available, but up to noon today thc Municipal Reformers had won 010 seats, the
Progressives 222 and Ihe Labor and
Independent candidates 77 .out of a- total of 1362.
Tho provincial municipal elections
have also resulted In rout for the Lib
erals. The campaigns In the provinces
were mostly conducted on Progressive
party HneB. Complete results show
that the Liberals have sustained a net
loss of 33 representatives and that the
Conservatives have a net gain of 59;
the Labor party haa a net gain of 9. In
London the Labor party candidates
seem to have fared even worse than
the Progressives but they made small
gains In tbe provinces.
Methodist Episcopal Church In America Will Have Two Departments.
Buffalo, N. Y., Nov. 2.���The general
missionary committee of the Methodist
Kplseopal church has decided to fix
the total sum to be appropriated for
home and foreign mission work at
$1,6116,000, for this coming year, this
being about the amount contributed by
the denomination for mission purposes
during the year ending October 31.
Because of the forthcoming division
ol ilie Missionary society Into a board
of foreign missions with headquarters
at New York, and a board of Home
missions and church extensions with
headquarters at Philadelphia, these
separate societies are to begin operations under revised charters January
1 next.
The first part of the morning session
was given to a consideration of the
educational movement maintained
among the young people of the missionary society. ThiB department hav-
iug as Its special function the promotion of mission study among Young
People's societies and ln Sunday
schools and junior organizations of
the churches.
Hungarian    Patriot's Remains   Taken
Back to Native Land.
Kalschau, Hungary, Nov. 2.���The
body of Franz Rakoozy, the Hungarian
patriot who died in exile, and those
of his mother and son Joseph, were
brought here today on a special train
from Buda Pest, and were taken to
the cathedral with great ceremony,
where a requiem mass was celebrated
in the presence of deputations from
all parts of the country. The three
coffins were then conveyed to a consecrated vault, while a salute of four
guns was fired.
The sarcophagus, which Is the work
of Francis Mikola, tlie sculptor, ls
suitably inscribed with a tribute to
the emperor-klng in allowing the precious bodies to be repatriated "to the
endless joy of the nation."
The Riae in 8llver.
Without the present domestic de)
mand for sliver for mint purposes
there Is much In the statistical position of that Important metal to ac-
count lor the recent advance in prices.
Not s!nc-< 1893 has this metal cost
over "2 :��� nee per ouuee in London or
70 ctintb at New York. Probably the
figures were expanded somewhat by
government purchases at the rate of
about 2,000,000 ounces recently, deliverable at the Philadelphia, Denver
and other mints; but the great pressure this year has come from India,
which has taken about $61,300,000
worth from the London market, that
Is more than the total shipments to all
Far Eastern countries in any preced
Ing full year, with the exception of
1877 and 1857. The latter year covered
the great Indian mutiny and generally
disturbing conditions, and the great
famine in India occurred In 1877. Tho
question of the moment, says Dun's
Review, fs whether production can be
Increased sufficiently to check the advance in price, as consumption gives
no evidenc of curtailment. Possibly
the demand for use in the arts may
fall off, although there ts no present
prospect of a reduction In the estimate of 60,000,000 ounces annually,
particularly with leading nations so

Pontiff Protests.
Paris, Nov .2.���A  prelate   of   high
rank   whose  name    ls  not    given   is
quoted In the press    here    today  as
saying that the  pope will  reject the
decision *f the council of state rer��
dered October 31 .by which under the
law of 1881, meetings organized by private Individuals for worship will be
recognized as legal after December 11,
when the church and state and separation law formally goes Into effect. The
prelate stated that the plaintiff would
never recognize that tbe functions of
religion can assume the character of
public worship.
Steel Mills Have Already Booked Full
Capacity Orders for 1007.
Chicago, Nov. 2.���The Record-Herald
today says: More than 1,500,000 tons
of steel rails bave been ordered by the
railroads for delivery within 1907 from
the various steel mills. Tbe total capacity of tbe steel mills for a year Is
about 3,000,000 tons, so all of them are
assured of their full capacity orders
for 1907. Never before, it la stated,
have so many orders for rails been
placed by tbe railroads as this season.
Some of the roads have been compelled to seek foreign rails in order
to bave assurances that their orders
will be delivered in anything like the
time they specify.
The demand for new rails does not
come so much for new railroad construction as it does for renewals and
for *-elay!ng tracks with heavier steel.
The business of the railroads has Increased _. enormously that the old
light rails are nadequate to carry the
train loads and the heavy equipment
of today. Railroads of the South are
among the" heaviest buyers of steel
rails for 1907, and it ls stated the demand in that section indicates tbe wonderfully Increased demand which is being made on tbe transportation companies ln the South.
Membera of Canadian Geological Sur
vey   Describe   Hitherto   Unknown
Features of North Coast Wilde.
According to opinions expressed by
some of the members of tbe Canadian
geological survey party, which returned from tbe Nortb last week, after
spending the summer ln lower Alaska
and tbe Yukon, the country along tbe
St. Ellas range ls one of tbe wonders
of tbe North. The land from Mount
St. Ellas to Ocean cape, a distance of
about 180 miles east and about 50
miles back from the coast line, is very
much adapted to agricultural purposes
and would not take very much labor
to put it into fine shape for growing
some of the barded cereals. In tbe
summer tbe valleys are covered with
all kinds of beautiful wild flowers and
strawberries grow in abundance.
But the amazing feature of Ibis land
Is that in winter, all of it ia covered
with snow and ice. During the coldest
spell the whole surface ls one vast
glacier and deer and goats which happen to be caught lingering behind, die
of starvation and their bodies litter the
white surface unless they manage to
tind tbelr way out.
A few Indian huts and white settlers' cabins are found here and there
nearly covered with snow and ice.
These are occupied during the summer,
but are abandoned as the cold season
approaches. Yakarah Bay, which runs
up some 30 miles from tlie open sea,
ls a magnificent bay and affords ample
facilities for making lt one of the finest
harbors fn the North. There ls a number of houses there, and steamers
make it a call en route to and from
Nome and St. Michaels. Valdez Ib situated about u 16 hours' run west nnd
the two places are connected by a biweekly steamer service. Dry Bay is
some 20 miles east of Yakntah Bay
and Is Ihe mouth of the Alsek river.
It wns by this river that several attempts were made to reach the upper
country lu stead of following the long
and tortuous trad). Tho river Is very
swift and dangerous and was described
by the parly as a "running ilger." Canyons are met at every turn and the
bunks are so steep that It is like courting death to attempt to follow the edge
of the banks. Several canoes were
carried by the men and when a chance
came to use them they were put Into
the water. On oue occasion several
canoes full of provisions were being
towed up stream by long ropes, when
a thunderous roar was heard far up
the mountain Bide, The noise caused
the party to halt, and aftor looking In
tho direction whence came the sound,
the men were startled to see an avalanche of sand and boulders ln progress down tho mountain. Fortunately
they were near a ledge and they es-
s-iipeil. although one man had his left
shoulder grabbed by a huge boulder.
One of the canoes was smashed to
kindling nnd Its cargo was entirely
lost. Many fine deer and mountain
goata were seen and much Bport was
obtained by shooting several brown
Baffles New York Firemen For flours
Brilliant Rescues by Heroic Efforts
Just as Flames Enwrapped Garments of Victims.
New York, Nov. 2.���Two men had a
remarkable escape from death by Mra,.
property valued at $100,000 was destroyed and hundreds of tenement
dwellers fled from tbelr homes In terror as a result of a fire ln a seven-
story factory building at Stanton am.
Mengln streets early today. For two
hours the flames baffled the firemen,
threatening to sweep beyond control
and lick up the wretched dwellings adjoining, and all that time the hundreds
who had been driven from their beds
almost naked stood shivering in the
chill morning air.
The place where the fire raged la In
the centre of tbe so-called sweatshop
district, and tbe tenements are filled
with the employees In these places,
most of them Hebrews of tbe poorer
When the fire waa discovered by a
policeman lt had spread all through
the entire lower part of tbe factory
building and two Jewish watchmen,
whose escape bad been cut off by the
flames, were standing at an upper window wildly gesticulating and crying
for help. Gradually, aa the fire sained
headway, the men were driven to seek
refuge on the roof. There tbey found
temporary safety, but ln a few minutes tbe flames began to break through
the roof and close tn around the two
figures which could be plainly aeen
kneeling in prayer.
The frantic crowd ln the atreet
begged ln wails and screeches for the
firemen to go to the aid of tbe men,
who seemed doomed to die before their
eyes, but tbe firemen were helpless.
Their longest ladder would scarcely
reach two-thirds the height of the burning building and tbr ire escapee wore
wrapped for half their . igtb in flames.
At almost the last ��� s.-nent, when
the bluing circle had narroi' _ down
until tbe clothing of the helpless men
had begun to smoke from tbe Intense
heat, a great new fire truck with a ladder which never before bad been called
Into service, dashed through the
frightened crowd In the street. Quickly the ladder was raised and almost before Its topmost round had touched
the coping, a fireman appeared beside
the two men. In another moment he
had handed them one after another
to comrades who bad followed htm and
they were carried safe, but on the
verge of collapse from fright, to tbe
Irish International.

���* By one word we are lometimei judged to be
wise and by one word lomettmei Judged to be
foolish. Let uk therefore be careful what we
A few weeks ago The Canadian
made complaint of the unsatisfactory
nature of the postal service, particularly with respect to the infrequent
aud irregular arrival of the daily papers from coast and Eastern points.
The Canadian at that lime was voicing not alone its own sentiments but
those of a very large section of the
community whose business and convenience is seriously interfered with by
Iho delay occasioned through the non-
arrival or irregular arrival of the mails,
It was contended that not only do
newspapers arrive with painful uncertainly but that tbat fan was presumptive evidence that important business
letters are also unnecessarily delayed.
This bas proved I" be the case and
thc evil complained of instead iif being remedied is gradually bin with
marked emphasis becoming worse.
Why tWO daily papers published in
Toronto or Montreal ou the sunn- day
and at the same hour, and presumably
mailed at thu same time should be wto
and three days apart in their arrival
In Xelson is a mutter too puzzling for
one OUtsftte of the postal department
to understand. And why there should
he two or three days���as often occurs
���between the arrival of successive issues of the same paper with their final
arrival in a bunch is equally unintelligible.
The evil must bave serious consequences for those whose mails arrive
as In the rural districts only once or
twice a week. The delayed papers if
late in arriving at this distributing
point are delayed an additional week
and   are  ancient   history   by   the   time
they arrive at their destination.
We  were at  first  under the Impres
sion thai the connections at Medicine
Hat were imperfect but that would
only explain the delay of one day.
Moreover the complaint is becoming
so serious all along the line of tbe C.
P. R, and other lines in the West that
a veritable chorus of reproach is being chanted by the papers in the
prairie provinces. This all goes to
show that there is some radical defect
In the postal system aad that the actual convenience of the people is being
sacrificed in order that dividends may
be declared. The postal service Is the
most commonly used and the most Important of all public utilities and everything, even passenger traffic, if
that were necessary, should be so adjusted as to give a respectable and satisfactory mall service.
Thai we are not alone in our endurance of this evil the Toronto News,
which makes a deliverance upon the
Subject, will plainly show. The News
"The Prince Albert Advocate warns
the government that the postal service iu the West must be improved.
li Insists tbat red tape methods will
not go ln tbe West, and that the
country will not accept a postal policy
dictated by fossil officials who know
no more of Western Canada than an
i.sqnimnux knows of tin* Sandwich
Islands. Many other Western papers
use Bimilar language, ai many points
the postal service tn ihe new provinces
is unsatisfactory, and more mall routes,
* (tensions of the postal car service
and more postoffioos musi be provided.
As we have said more than once, while
we Lhlnk the postal department should
be self-sustaining, it has no business
with a Burplus of a million dollars.
The  department   should   be   a   serving.
not a taxing department, and its surplus should be devoted to better remuneration id' posl masters and mail
carriers, and general exlensions and
Improvements of the service."
Tlie Canadian suggests that a monster petition be signed hy those who
have experienced this Inconvenience to
show the Ottawa authorities how Inadequately the West is being dealt with
In the matter of one of Its most serious noeds.
The despatches yesterday informing
the world of the escape of the notorious
organizer of the terriorlsts and Ihe
head of the revolutionary organizations
In Russia throws a flood of light on
the apparent quiel that has reigned
In tho empire of the czar during the
last few mouths.    Not until hiscsenpe
was it known thai he had even been
sent into exile nor that he was the
soul or mind of the terrorist forces.
While lhe Russian authorities from
time to time hnd made their boast that
tbey had succeeded in capturing the
leaders of the revolutionary movement
the capture of the recognized director
of operations was carefully kept secret.
It may be that they did not know al
tbo time the Importance of the personage committed to the toils of Siberia.
Por several month-, Russia, which
at one lime dominated the news pages
of the papers of the world because of
the horrors perpetrated upon the am-
���tltutlonal and bureaucratic authorities
oi lhal unhappy country, has enjoyed
a period ol reprieve from the extreme
outrages of the less recent past. That
tlie revolutionists were still busy has
Inon amply shown but their daring and
successful attempts at wholesale destruction of officialdom have not appeared so determined for some time.
Their robbery of trains, banks, customs
and treasury funds, shows that they
have not lucked cohesion and method
In their procedure and it ls doubtless
from the booty thus secured that the
ample store of funds they are said to
have in their possession has been
from time to time replenished.
While there has been a* comparative
dearth of live news from tlie seat ot
these disturbances no one has supposed that lhe revolution was crushed or
eveu suppressed. It may have been
puzzling to understand why there was
so sudden a cessallun oi Udsussi nations,
of carefully planned and skilfully executed murders of officials but in the
light of the recent news the facts are
explained. The revolutionists have
beeu engaged in marauding, robbery
and replenishment of their coffers
awaiting the successful efforts of their
leader to escape.
The despatches assure us that the
government of Akatua is in dread
that others of tlie terrorist leaders
may escape, as it is said they huve
not only plenty of money but the sympathy ot all the people. It may not be unsafely surmised that they have the sympathy of the guards themselves, aud
that while ihe leaders have been ln exile they have been busily fomenting sedition and plotting methods of release
tor the convicts as well.
The revolution and terrorism of Russia embraces in its plans all the middle,
peasant, pauper hnd even the criminal
classes, und its black hand is against
only the bureaucrat and the despot.
Every man with a grievance���and who
in Russia outside of the two orders
named has not���is fellow to the revolutionist and it needs only that he imbibe the sentiments of hope and ambition which fire the extreme terrorist to become one himself.
With the release of tierschumin we
may look for an early repetition of the
horrors which have darkened the page
of Russia's history since the termiua-
lion of the Russo-Japanese war. The
Jew may keep out of sight and out of
harm's way, it will be unlike him it he
does not, but the brains are now restored to the organization and with its
thousands of fearless agents who gladly face death and glory when they fall
iu their deadly work, it will again he-
come the terror of the laud,
The recent religious liberty granted
to the people of that unhappy country
will do but little to stay the tread of
the destroyer. It was not religious
liberty that the terrorist contended
for. It was the abolition of the cruel
and selfish, the heartless and inhuman
system under which the bureaucrats
ruled the land and fattened upon the
products of the slavery of the helpless.
Religious toleration will uot abolish
this system if, indeed, it does not serve
to accentuate the enmity against it by
showing the people that they can be
free in one respect and not In another. Wars and rumors of wars will be
the fruit of Gerschumln'a escape.
Tlie action of the Alberta government iu providing under the department of agriculture for the operation
of experimental fruit farms is a commendable one thut will do mucn to
make arboriculture possible on (he
prairies when Ihe attempts of Individ
UUl growers mlghl result In failure.
The arrangement provides for the selection of acreages at various points
throughout ilie province where climal-
le conditions differ aud the planting
und culture of such hardy specimens
as bave already given evidence of
their adaptability to the somewhat
fiigid winters of the territory, as well
as maturing the fruits In spile of tho
reticent summer climate.
The government undertook this matter ut the urgent request of prospective
growers nnd purchasers of fruit and
with the limitless market that is in
prospect If the resulta warrant the expectations of the petitioners, a valuable service will have heen rendered
the whole country.
The Canadian has expressed the
opinion that if a* sufficient number of
the frull growers of the interior of this
province were to express a desire for
thc founding of an experimental farm
to make just bucIi investigations for
the Kootenays as will he made in the
Northwest that, some hope might bo
entertained of n similar utility in
British Columbia. The government,
however, will not thrust such ua emprise on lhe people and If the results
Of Individual growers are satisfactory
to themselves perhaps their complacency will be the end of such proposals.
For the newcomers however who are
unacquainted with the climate ami soil
Of ihe upper country such au Instllu-
tiou would be a great boon and for
those who bave hinds lo dispose of the
strongest answer to all suggestions of
possible failure could be maile by
pointing  to  the    expefrljnenta]   farm,
where even tbo novice could be thoroughly Initiated Into the mosi successful methods of fruit growing here.
The promptness wiih which premier
McBride called tbe bluff of the Liberal association of Victoria when they
expressed a wish that he meet the
leader of ihe opposition to debate the
question of better terms is of a piece
with his entire conduct throughout
this unfortunate affair. Tlie wider
publicity Ills actions receive tlie better It will be for him and Tor the country he serves, lie has nothing to hide
and that he should meet the opposition leader on the same public platform would prevent the misstatements
and deceit, which while not practised
by ihe leader of the opposition himself
are so characteristic of tlie press
which supports him.
li may be better to be born lucky
than rich, but most of us don't have
a chance to express a preference till
It's too late.
