Explains   to   His   Constituents   His   Actions   as
Their Representative at Ottawa.
The Dublic meetiug held in the
Town Hall, on l-'riday evening last,
which had been called for tl.e purpose of giving Mr. Kennedy an op-
port uu iiv of meeting his ccrastitu
er.ts was fairly well attended con
sidering the busy season
On   motion,   the   Reeve,   J,  A
Paterson, took  the  chair  and in a
few appropriate  words  introduced
the speaker of the evening.
J. ii. Kennedy, M.P., who was
well received, first discussed the
vote of $50,000 to the Dominion
Exhibition at New Westminster, in
1905, and said that another gentleman, who happened to be at Ottawa, claimed all the credit lor that
vote. "After the convention, last
year, a squib appeared in our Liberal paper at Westminster, crediting this gentleman with securing
that grant and it has never been
contradicted to the present time, although I went to thi editor and
told him how false it was. This is
what is keeping me in the field."
Though there may le another
session, and if there is of course I
shall attend, yet such at present
does not seen! li"..ely to be tl.e case,
and if the Cm vei tion now called
turns nii-.i'oivr I . tn quite satisfied

Cunt:
Politics.
The speaker stoutly defended the
government on the Autonomy Bills,
saying that it a similar sei. oi circumstances aro.e, he would do the
same under similar conditions. Rebellion was threatened if ihe bills
passed,   and  what  was the result?
menial  farm   had received increasing appropriations each year, and
was  doing   very   successful   work. ;
(Hear, bear).
Discussing tbe public! works 01 i
the Fraser River, secured during!
his membership of the House, Mr, |
Kennedy said: One of the things
that 1 gave special attention to was
to secure grants toward public
works, especially to get wharves
which were needed badly by the
latmcrs. In travelling up and
down the river I had seen grain
rotting out in the rain and hay in
the mud, and kiln-dried lumber
rotting, and if wharves could be
built at the leading places I saw it
would assist the farmers very materially. What has been done, anybody who goes up and down the
Fraser River will see for themselves. This year $24,000 has
been appropriated for wharves. It
used to be granted in special items
for special wharves, but now it is
vited in a lump sum. Very frequently it cost more for a wharf
than was expected, and sometimes
it could be built for less than the
I appropriation. When Use vote was
for sepaiate wharves the money
could not he devoted lo any ether
whir than that or which it was
appropriated, 1 ow; in a lump sum,
the expenses coul be marie to IU

PIN_iAPPLl. AS A  MliD-CUNli!
The medicinal value of pineapples
has recently been the subject of con
siderable inquiry among physicians,
tnd iu  Hawaii experiments have
been made to-determine something
of these properties.     It  h_s been
found  that the   Iruit of the pineapple contains a digestive  principle
closely   resembling   pepsin   in   its
action, and to this is probably due
the beneficial tesuhs of the use  ol
the fruit in eertain forms of dyspepsia.    On the casein  of milk  pine-j
apple juice acts as a digestive in al- j
��aost the same  manner  as rennet,
and the action is also well illustra
lei hy placing a thin   piece of uncocked beef between  two slices of
fresh    pii��apple.    where    in   the
Course of a few hours it* character
is completely changed.
Iu diphtheritic sore throat and
croup pineapple juice has come to
be very largely relied upon in
countries where the frnit is common. The false membranes which
cause the closing of the throat seem
to be dissolved by the fruit acids
and relief is almost immediate.

not yet the busiest time of year.
The cooler weather ol the past

Their Repre_enta_he at Ottawa.
The public meeting he'd in the
Town Hull, on Friday evening last,
which had been called fir the purpose of giving Mr. Kennedy an op-
portttuity of meeting his constitu
ents was fairly well attended eon
[sidering the busy season.
On   motion,   the   Reeve,   J. A
Paterson, took   tlie  chair   and iu a
few appropriate  words  introduced
the speaker ot the evening.
J. ii. Kennedy, M.P., who was
well received, first discussed the
vote of $50,000 to the Dominion
Exhibition at New Westminster, iu
1905, and said that another gentleman, who happened to be at Ottawa, claimed all the credit lor that
vote. "After the convention, last
year, a squib appeared in our Liberal paper at Westminster, crediting this gentleman with securing
tbat grant and it has never been
contradicted to tlie present time, although I went to the editor and
told him how false it was. This is
what is keeping me in the field."
Though there may te another
session, and if there is of course I
shall attend, yet such at present
does not seen: lively to be the case,
and if the conveittion now called
turns iiv- down I ;m quite satisfied

Cttr-ii     Politics.
The speaker sloutly defended the
government on the Autonomy Bills,
saying thai, it a similar set of circumstances aro:'e, he would do the
same under similar conditions. Rebellion was threatened if lhe bills
passed,   and   what  was the result?

, overflowed flora the stalls onto tho
pavement. Visitor's too were there
in force, the beautiful weather attracting many summer holldayers
from Vancouver to see the famous
New Westminster market and they
were not disappointed, athough it is
not yet the busiest time of year.
The cooler weather of the past
week has considerably strengthened
the meat demand, a fact which tha
sellers fully appreciated, increasing
their stoek accordingly. Tlio supply
all round was a gobd average and
demand   was  much   better    than
to secure grants toward public
works, especially to get wharves
which were needed badly by the
(aimers. In travelling up aud
dowu the river I had xseen grain
rotting out in the rain and hay in
the mud, and kiln-dried lumber
rotting, and if wharves could be
built at the leading places I saw it
would assist the farmers very materially. What has been done, anybody who goes up and down the
Fraser River will see for themselves. This year $24,000 has
been appropriated for wharves. It
used to be granted in special items
for special wharves, but now it is
voted in a lump sum. Very frequently it cost more for a wharf
than was expected, and sometimes
it could be built for less than the
appropriation. When Uie vote was
for sepai ate wharves the money
could not l.e devoted to any ether
wharf than that or which it wasi
appropriated, row, in a lump sum,!

PINEAPPLE AS A MEDICINE
The medicinal value of pineapples
has recently been the subject ol considerable inquiry among physicians,
and iu Hawaii experiments have
been made to-determine something
of these properties. It has been
found that the fruit of Ihe pineapple contains a digestive principle
closely resembling pepsin in its
action, and to this is probably due
the beneficial lesufts of the ��se ol
the fruit in certain forms of dyspepsia. On the casein of milk pineapple juice acts as a digestive in almost the same manner as rennet,
and the action is also well iHustra
te-1 by placing a ihiu piece of uncooked beef between two slices of
fresh pir<apple, where in the
^otirse of a few hours its character
is completely changed.
In diphtheritic sore throat and
croup pineapple juice has come to
be very largely relied upon in
countries where the fruit is common. The false membranes which
cause the closing of the throat seem
to be dissolved by the iruit acids
and relief is almost immediate.
them this autonomy.
With regard to the Fisheries
Commission, he declare! that he
had nothing to do with the appointment of any member except J. C
Brown, and many of the regulations now in force were due to the
findings of that commission. Mr.
Brown was a true friend of the
fishermen and wished to do justice
to both parties, but he believed that
one good sensible man would have
done just as much goo.l as the
whole iive. He believed the government did their best.
Mr. Kennedy dealt at length
I with the immigration-policy of the
1 government, which was a very
I great imi rovement on the policy of
' the Conservatives. Over i,_oo,ooo
persons have been introduced into
