Secretary Broderick, of the Fraser
River Fishermen's Association, last
evening sent a letter to the Canners'
Association stating that the white
fishermen were prepared to accept la
cents per fish for sockeye salmon during July and 12 "�� cents during
August. These prices were decided
on at a meeting ot fishermen in the
city yesterday. No action will be
taken until the reply of the canners
is received. This should be on
Thursday or Friday.
The attitude of the Japanese In regard to the price is not clearly defined. It is rumored among the white
fishermen here that the Japs met at
Steveston this week and decided to
stand out for 15 cents straight during July and August. It is stated
that they will not consider the prices
off��red by the canning companies,
12% cents for July, and 10 cents for
Should the canners accede to the
terms of the white fishermen sockeye
fishing will commence in earnest on
the Fraser River on Sunday night
next. The men are now engaged in
taking In the spring salmon nets and
preparing for the sockeye run which
should be well started on the river
by the beginning of next week. If
the canners refuse to pay the price
asked for fish, and the Japs agree to
hold out a strike will probably result.

ST. LOUIS, Mo., July 7.���Reid Nor-
thrup, formerly head of the refrigerator service of the Missouri Pacific
railroad, died suddenly last night at
his home. He was a cousin of George
Gould and,' until a few years ago, was
prominent in club, social and business circles. The family refused to
discuss his death last night or to explain what had caused it. Reid Nor-
thrup had been under treatment in
various sanitariums, and returned to
his home only recently.
TACOMA, July C.���John D. Marsh,
of Winnipeg, holder of the world's
professional Marathon record, won
the Tacoma Marathon last evening
in the remarkably fast time of
2.42:49, which is just three minutes
and two seconds poorer than his record. Marsh led from the start and
was never crowded. His nearest competitor was more than two miles behind when he finished. Alexander
Rowan, of Nanaimo, B.C., finished
second, in the time of 3.11, with Wm.
Stanley, of San Francisco, third, in
the time of 3.23. Stanley was well
up to the front in the ISth mile when
he was taken sick and forced to quit
for four laps. Marsh never stopped
once during the race, and fliiiished
apparently as strong as at the start.
Eight men started in the race and all
finished but one.
H. S. Murton thus comments on
the recent Tecumseh-New Westminster MInto cup series in the Toronto
Evening Telegram:
Well the second Minto cup series
on the coast is over, and the cup still
rests on the banks of the Fraser. The
possession of the cup has already
proved a bonanza for the holders, and
the expenses of the Journey East last
year are long since covered. And
there are more games to come yet.
The N. L. U. champions of this year
will make their attempt this Fail most
likely, and Regina announces her Intention of going out in the Spring
again. Tecumsehs are already contemplating another raid on the cup
this fall, but tfiere is a stiff season
ahead of them, before they can
qualify for another attempt.
What does the recent series
show It simply goes to confirm
whac has already been said in this
paper. Westminster you will remember, won the cup from the Shamrocks when the latter were in a
weakened condition. And if the defenders are only so strong that the
best they can do is to defeat by three
goals a team whose home could only
score three goals more than Regina,
they are not strong enough to retain
the cup for any length of time.
Regina has been mocked and
scoffed at for the showing she made.
Yet Westminster was In as good
shape for them as for Tecumsehs.
And the Prairie team was under
every handicap which can visit a
lacrosse ceam���lack of condition,
lack of familiarity with each other's
play, and biased officials. If a home
which is laboring under none of these
handicaps, but is drilled together for
years can only go three goals better
than the effort of this ill-assorted
bunch, then Westminster has reason
to fear the visit of a team the
strength of whose home and field
balances that of its defence.
Westminster is not a great team.
They had the advantage of home
grounds In the recent games. And
teams in the N. L. TJ. have beaten
practically the same Tecumsehs on
home grounds by far greater scores.
Westminster has a strong defence,
and one of the fastest fields playing
the game. They have two or three
great men in their home. But Gray
in goal, Galbraith at point, Winte-
mute and W. Turnbull on the home,
are mediocre players. And a world's
championship team cannot afford to
carry four filiups, no matter into how
strong a combination they may fit.
A team will come along with an
equally strong combination, and 12
strong men composing it. Then the
cup will return. However, it would
not be surprising should Westminster
strengthen up.
A team playing the game which
Montreal pulled off against Tecumsehs in Montreal last year, or a team
playing as Shamrocks- played later
last season, would life the cup on the
coast with ease. Some think Vancouver will possess the cup this season,
but it is well to note that in not one
of the coast games this year has
Westminster played Vancouver with
her full strength. At that, though, if
Vancouver were to strengthen up,
she would have a better chance of
winning the cup on a season's play
than a visiting team from the East
in two matches. They are more
familiar with Westminster's style on
the coast, and half the matches are
on the home grounds. In case of a
tie Victoria would be the neutral
grounds. If lacrosse in Vancouver
holds its own this year, next year
there will doubtless be a strong team
placed there. At all events the shifting of the Minto cup has brought tho
lacrosse worlds of the East and West
nto close communion.
The Telegram says:
O, Minto Cup !

Tecumsehs may not have lifted the
cup, but they will probably bring
back it weight in gold.
Then again, if Tecumsehs win the
N. L. U. championship they can go
nut after it again this fall. "Experience is a greater teacher."

In the course of an interesting contribution to the proceedings of the
Armstrong Collegt Agricultural students, Mr. John Anderson, Spango,
Sanquhar, writes:���Further research
work is still needed regarding milk

There was some exceedingly interesting passages in the speech
which Sir Victor Horsley recently
delivered In London, at the meeting
of the Men's League for Women's
Suffrage. He said: "To a physiologist, such as I am, the arguments advanced against woman suffrage from
a physiological standpoint seem most
extraordinary. I am not going to refer to the catalogue of evils which
are supposed to belong to women
alone, but I will refer to one���the
size of their brains. It Is argued
that because the brain of a woman is
smaller than that of a man she has
not the same qualities and mental attributes. The physiofbgical statement
is true, the inference from it absurd.
Every scientist knows that a woman's
method of thinking is exactly the
same as a man's, and the brain grows
���not merely through long ages, but
in a few centuries, wherever the human race has had a chance of development. The inhabitants of Paris ln
'the Merovingian era had smaller
brains than tho Parisians of to-day.
Is it right to carp at women's brains
and methods of thought when wc reflect that it is only within a generation that women have been offered
education on proper terms? Let us
take the objections on their own
ground. If a woman has a different
way of thinking about things, and if
from her side of social life her outlook is unlike that of a man, is not
this an advantage To express their
distinctive opinijns women must
have a vote."
Speaking of the position of women,
and how little In the past men had
done to raise it, he went on to refer
to some exceptions to this gr.neral
statement. He spoke with satisfaction of the action of the members of
the medical profession in throwing
open that profession to women. Sir
Victor Horsley added: "I would point
out to you that we have gone further
than that in the evolution of tho
freedom of women in medical affairs,
becaut-c just as the introduction of
women into the profession has
thrown open positions to both sexes,
it has also laid upon candidates for
an appointment the duty of not allowing themselves to be sweated.
What has the British Medical Association done? It has through its representative meetings, pointed out by
resolution, and It has emphasized this i
by driving It home Into the minds of
those municipalities which have tried
to sweat women practitioners, that
the payment for men and women
practitioners is to bo identical."
These glands may be stimulated to
action by the appearance or smell of
food. The glands of the udder may
also be excited to secrete milk by
what may be called continual causes
of excitement, such as the approach
ot the milker at the regular times,
taking hold of the teat, manipulation
of the udder, and other marks of affection pleasing to the cow.
Care must, however, be taken ln
stimulating the udder to Increased secretion of milk by such attentions
that nature is at once followed up by
relieving the udder of the milk as se-
cieted, else the effect will be a check
on nature's method, and the result
will be a decreased flow of milk.
Such a check should be guarded
against where the practice of washing
or wiping the udder before milking
is performed. Experiments carried
out In the United States by wiping
the udder of some twenty cows at
the commencement of milking have
shown that their milk yield was considerably reduced. i
It is always advisable to be systematic and regular at times of milking
and when two daily miikings are
practised, to aim at relieving nature's
effort by dividing the miikings equally over the twenty-four hours.
By milking three or four times
daily the glands will be excited to al
greater degree, and good cows will
respond to the demand, as far as
possible, by milking twice dally, but!
it is a question of such treatment
will pay  In ordinary practice. j
The supply of milk to towns has
expanded considerably throughout:
the last quarter of the late century, I
and is yearly demanding increased
attention', particularly from the pro- j
ducer's standpoint so that he may be
able to maintain a high reputation
and so suppress the demand for fresh
milk shipped into the country, which
has also expanded largely during the
past few years. Profits in dairying
have not been so finely cut as many
of the other departments of farming
practised, owing partly to the necessity for the greater attention by the
farmer to his stock at all times of
the year, and for the greater amount
of education needed for successful
Handling of milk than is required in
other branches of farming.
The returns of the city milk producer at present may be looked on
as about 3S per cent, greater than
where butter ar cheese making is carried on. but from this 38 per cent,
about 30 has to be deducted to make
up for the upkeep of the dairy herd
all the year round, along with the
loss from the farm of the by-product
left from butter of cheese making.
These returns are further reduced
when milk has to be sent by rail and
go into the hands of a milk merchant.
T have often thought that in such
cases it would be advisable for large
districts, such as Cumberland nnd
Westmoreland, to co-operate in estah-
| lishing a milk depot In sending milk
to a city such ns Newcastle. At such
a centre the milk supply could be
regulated, particularly In such months

of contagion, either animal or human; or milk that does not contain
3.25   per  cent,  of butter fat, or  8.75
j non-fatty solids, 12 per cent, of total solids, and not more than 8.S
per cent of water. It is also forbidden to offer for sale milk of a
higher temperature than 60 degrees
Fahr., or of an acidity higher than
20 degrees, or with more than 100,000
bacteria   in   each   cubic   centimetre."
I     Where cheesemaking is    practised,
I the milk is removed from the byre
to the dairy at once, strained, and the
I evening milk gradually cooled and
kept overnight at a temperature thac
will be from 62 degrees to 6 5 degrees
Fahr. in the morning, care being
taken in the cooling process that the
development of natural flavors in the
milk are not checked hy too rapid
cooling. To this evening's milk is
added the morning's milking, and
cheese-making operations proceeded
with  throughout  the  day.
For buttermaking from cream the
separator is the most effective and
successful means of taking the cream
from the milk, and the separator
should be set so as to give cream of
rather a thin state, as this Is Sesir-
able In the perfect ripening. It answers well to take from 100 lbs. of
milk 16 to 20 to 25 per cent. fat. The
cream should not be kept longer than
fortyeight hours in summer- TrrTrrre
churning, and the new cream cooled
before adding to the "cream-crock,"
stirred well to mix, and tho whole
kept at a temperature between 5S
degrees and  62  degrees Fahr.
When a ripening agent is added to
the cream, the quantity, should not
exceed 2 Vi to s per cent, of the
��� Slightly better results are obtained
by churning cream in the ripe stage,
and It should then smooth, velvety,
and taste distinctly sour.
Good results from butter or cheese-
making will never be obtained from
small holdings as a whole, although
individual cases will occur where
fairly good butter will be produced,
because It Is only by haniTTng fairly
large quantities of milk and cream
that good quantity of article Is obtainable. Hence the advisability of small
holders co-operating and starting a
creamery or factory at a suitable centre, where their produce can be
dealt with in a scientific manner by
an expert.

VICTORIA,  July  7.���All    Is    peace
and quiet among the Northern.Indians
according to advices received by the
Superintendent of Provincial Police.
The natives are looking forward to
having their grievances, fancied or
otherwise, investigated by the Federal authorities nndj (meanwhile, if
thc-y had any Intention of causing
trouble, have buried the hatchet.
Some consternation was created In
Sunday o' I Victoria, Vancouver and other British
Benedlc- 'Columbia cities, where there are many
relatives of settlers In Hazelton and
other Skeena River settlements, by
the foundation given the report of an
Indian uprising through the discovery
of a lacerated body of a rancher. It
was anounced by press dispatches that
those remains had been Identified
and tha tthe indications were that It
was an Indian outrage. Investigation, however, discloses the fact that
the body was that of Alfred S. Fred-
eriksen, who was killed In an accident at Little Canyon ln October of
1908. ��� The gruesome discovery was
made at a point below Kltsumalkum
and the body was in an advanced
stage of decomposition, being only
Identified by means of the clothing.
The explanation of this mystery has
relieved the anxiety of those who have
feared a rebellion among the Northern tribes. The re-assuring report
that has been received from the Provincial constables from the outset
now are given  credence.

[Copyright, 1909, by American Press Association.]
Here is a story I rescued from some
old family papers that had not been
overhauled in half a century. I have
reconstructed it from Its original letter
form, preserving tbe first person in
which it was written:
I came to New Orleans in 1845 from
France. 1 was sitting one evening,
soon after my arrival, in a cafe when
an elderly man, about fifty-five I think.;
stepped up to me and with a broad,
southern accent said, "You are M.
Desmounes of Paris, I believe, suh."
"I am and ut your service, monsieur."
"I am a stranger In the city, suh. I
nin a planter from the interior of tho
state. I desire the services of some
one familiar with the code duello and'
have been told that you have officiated
on several occasions at meetings among
gentlemen. If It would not be too much
to ask, suh, I would like you to act fo'
me In an affair of bona', suh."
He was a typical Louisiana planter
of the period, but withal having a soldierly bearing���tall, erect and with
grizzly pray hair.
"I shall be happy to serve you, monsieur. But 1 should like to know
something about the case."
"Certainly,   suh.     My  opponent declared publicly that General Jackson
at the battle, of New Cleans used cotton bales fo' breastwo'ks.   I told him
that he was mistaken.    He persisted.
I gave him the He.. He challenged me."
I  was  surprised.    I  had  not then
learned of the various methods among
gentlemen in vogue ln the city of picking a quarrel which was based on tin-
other cause.
"Were you right?" I asked.
"Certainly, suh!    I  was present nt
the battle, suh."
"And who is your opponent?"
"Cnmille Trudeau, suh."
"Camille Trudeau! Is he here? Why,
my dear sir, he has been out twenty
times and always killed or winged his
"So I have heard, suh."
After a failure to Induce Captain St.
Leger���the name he gave me���to find
n way out of the difficulty, I consented
to act for him.   His opponent's second
Informed me that his principal,  who
was  twenty-five  years  younger than
St. Leger, would not kill the captain
if he could possibly help it.   St. Leger,
as the challenged party, selected pistols and a ground under the levee a
few miles north of the city.   We. proceeded thither nt daybreak the next
morning.    I noticed that the captain
stepped from his carriage gingeriy and
wnlked on to the ground with a slight
limp.   There also seemed to be something the matter with his left arm.
We placed the contestants thirty
paces apart. The captain told me thnt
he was a poor shot nnd mimed the distance himself. They fired iit the drop
of a hat. Trudeau was unharmed
St. Leger received it ball iu the leg
that nearly knocked him,over.'' But he
maintained his balance and awaited
the signal for another, round. Trudeau
looked surprised. He had aimed at
the captain's leg just below the kilobaud knew that he hud placed his bullet .there. Such a stroke should be
sufficient to put any man out of tlic
tight. We endeavored to induce tlic
old man to withdraw, but he would
not hear of it.
Just before the next signal I saw
Trudeau looking at his opponent's
right arm, as If he intended to shatter
It. I was uot surprised that he
changed his intention, for he could not
carry It out without killing his man.
When the shots rang out Trudeau was
still unharmed. St. Leger's left arm
swayed and then hung limp. He stood
as steady as ever.
Trudeau turned pale. Was he to
continue to put holes Iu his adversary's members without any perceptible Injury? I confess I was puzzled.
Trudeau appeared to be rattled. The
captain's shots had been drawing
closer to him, and this doubtless bad
an effect upon his nerve.
St. Leger insisted on another round.
When their hands were raised for
the uext shot I thought I noticed
slight tremor at the muzzle of Tru-
deau's pistol. The captain's face was
a study. It showed plainly that this
time he was determined to kill his op
poneht and showed, further, great con-
lidcuce in his ability to do so. I believe Trudeau considered that his own
life depended on taking his opponent's.
But his nerve hud gone, und he loosed
anxious. The captain stood straight
as u ramrod on his wounded leg,, which
he had uot permitted the surgeon to
examine und on which no blood was
visible. I looked to see it oozing from
under his pantaloons where they were
strapped over his boot, but looked in
At the next fire Trudeau's bullet
knocked St. Leger's pistol out ot his
nand, glanced and buried itself ln a
tree. Trudeau fell with a hole in the
center of his forehencl. The others
present, except myself, ran to Trudeau.
I started for St. Leger, but was sur
prised to see him walk to the carriage
with no more Impediment than his
usual limp. He told me to get ln, and
we drove away.
"Your leg, captain, and your arm!" I
"What about them?"
���ie wounds."
"I lost my right leg and my left
arm at the battle of New O'leans, suh."

tt cost him his life. I learned afterward that when Trudeau had first
come from Paris he had selected Captain St. Leger's only son for a target
on which to make a display of his

The, esteem  in which Premier Mc- j

'crv  shortly before his assumption of
Shv high     office    which    he now    so ^

recognition of the rights of the Upper

depending on blue papers and reports

works winch are in progress, but U

city and town, but in every mining
camp and agricultural settlement, am.
no one can deny that such opportunities are invaluable to the man who It
responsible for the government of the
"To know the youngest Premier in
Canada Is to like him. There is no
inure popular man in the Dominion
among his own constituencies, and
no more popular Minister among hit,
colleagues. A touching and eloquent
testimony to this fact has recently
been borne. The cares and responsibilities of office have weighed none
too lightly on Premier McBride; and
although a young and a strong man
he bears the marks of strenuous labor and anxiety. No public servant
spares himself less, or Is more conscientious In the discharge of duty.
He works long hours and takes few
holidays. Indeed his personal friends
realize that In the public interest, as
well as his own, he should turn over
a new leaf In this respect. A man
who has rendered such splendid service to the Province, who in six short
years has lifted it from the slough of
debt and discredit, and set It on the
highway of prosperity, and at the
same time attained a prominent position among the leading statesmen
of the Dominion cannot afford to neglect himself, or to impair his efficiency
by overwork.
"Premier McBride should have a
long life of public service yet to render. He possessess all the necessary
qualfflications, and some of the most
invaluable ones In a pre-eminent de
gree. All who know him concede to
the Premier of British Columbia
honesty of purpose, high intelligence,
administrative capacity, courage, a
broad grasp of local and national affairs, and that personal charm of
manner which Is at once so rare and
so attractive. Although a party leader, Premier McBride has always
maintained the friendliest relations
with the leaders of the Opposition,
and the keynote of his administration
has been 'for the advantage of the
i Province as a whole.' His tour
I through the Upper Country, which
| has just come to an end, has been the
most successful one which he has
made, and he comes back with a record of a prosperous country, showing vitality and enterprise in every
i branch   of  industry,     and    breathing
the   cheeriest  spirit  of  optimism   for
the future."
The Post, in conclusion, congratulates Premier McBride on his personal success and popularity and en the
successful work of his equally popular and efficient Ministers. It congratulates the Province on possessing
a leader of such conspicuous ability
and such remarkable personal popularity. Reviewing the work of the
McBride Administration, and In particular the arduous labors of the Premier, the Post suggests that in the
public interest he ought to be relieved
of departmental duty so as to be at
liberty to devote the whole of his
time to the supervision of the various
departments, and. the more frequent
visiting of newer parts of the Province which are so rapidly opening up
and developing conditions requiring
careful attention. "If such an arrangement could be made it would
inure to the advantage of all concerned, and would probably tend to length-
<n, it not to increase, the efficiency of
the Invaluable services which the
youngest Premier in Canada Is now
rendering to his native Province."

************* **-i-*:~:
[Copyright, 1909, by American Press Association.]
They met on tho transcontinental
train going west. He started from
New York, and she got on at Omaha.
She was a dashing girl. He was a
bit of a swell iu fancy waistcoat
and light gaiters over his shoes. She
sat near him ln the parlor cur, ami
when the conductor took her ticket
and let it down like the steps of a
coach of 1700 he saw that she was
booked for San Fronclsco. He was
going to San Francisco himself.
He wished be hud some one to Introduce him, but he hadn't. In a little
while, though, something funny occurred, and she smiled, happening to
catch his eye at the same time. He
hadn't been used to having eastern ladles smile at him on a train. He
couldn't make this oue out.
They were crossing the alkali plains,
and there was nothing attractive to
look at. Even the river Platte, devoid
of a fringe of bushes on its banks,
was bereft of beauty. He couldu't
stand it any longer. He took his newspaper and novels, dumped them on the
seat beside her, lifted his hat, threw
open his coat the better to show the
pattern of his waistcoat and said:
"I shall be pleased if you can find
anything among those to help you
while away the time ln this desolate
"Oh, I don't wish to read!" she said.
"I've had enough of books lately. I'd
much rather talk."
She took up the papers and put them
on the opposite seat. He sat down
beside her.
He was quite astonished at the ease
with which tbe acquaintance bad been
made. Since he had never thus made
a lady's acquaintance before it was
natural that he should be a little sur
There was an added zest In finding
her out���plenty of difficulty in it. And
it was an adventure much to his 11k-
lug, although he rather suspected that
she might turn out to bo an odven
turess or a ladylike pickpocket She
was fairly well educated, made no slip;
lu grammar, used no slung, but he had
not been conversing with her an hour
before she treated him as if they had
boon introduced, and at the eud of
twenty-four . hours' acquaintance like
an old friend.
And he was astonished at himself
for the confidence he committed to
her. He told her he had a chum living iu San Francisco who was about
to be married. He was going out
there to be his friend's best man. She
asked him a great many questions
concerning the couple who were to participate us principals���whether there
was a romance in it, how old the
groom was, the bride. Was he handsome? Was she pretty? Were they
rich or poor? She prattled and rattled
on till she had exhausted all he knew
about the groom and had made up all
he didn't know about the bride, which
was considerable. By this time she
knew that his own name was Scarborough, his friend's name Wolford and
tho bride's Merrlam. She was disappointed that he couldn't tell her the
bride's first name, though she was
sure it was Rosalie. When he asked
why she said It was because that was
the name she should have, ne told
her that Charlie Wolford���after this
she always spoke of him as Charlie-
was not a romantic chap, so he in-
'ferred that there wasn't much romance
in the case. She said she didn't believe It���that she had never known a
Charlie that wasn't a good fellow and
just full of love and lovableness,
What had Charlie told him about
Rosa He's looks? He couldn't remember Charlie having written him about
that, but he was sure Charlie thought
her pretty.
When they reached the mountains
and the scenery became grand the girl
had become so Interested In the man
that she did nothing but prattle to him,
leaving the canyons to waste their gorgeous beauty OD some one else. She
treated him with as much unreserve
and unconventlonallty as If she had
been brought up with him. He could
only understand it on the assumption
thut there wns something just it little
bit queer about her. However, something, he knew not what, kept him
from acting on the assumption till
they were Hearing San Francisco.
Then when they were alone on the car
platform she put her red lips so near
to his that there was nothing left for
him but to take n kiss. Instead of
blushing or drawing back, she burst
Into a merry laugh. Then he was
more mystified than ever.
He asked lo sec her to a cab when
thev should reach the station, but she
told him that she expected friends
to meet her���very strnltlaced friends
who would not Hire to see her In company with a man, so ho must go away
by himself. Ho asked If he might call
on hor, and she said he might. She
would see that he got her address.
When ho i;aw his friend Wolford he
recounted Ms adventure. Wolford told
him he could not tell anything about
the western girls, they were so different from eastern girls���an unconventional. At that Scarborough stopped
short of lolling about the kiss.
