SATURDAY,   MAY   13,    IQ05-
On Tburfday we were treated to
an exhibition ot road making on
the Trunk road by the "road grader" which has been sent here on
Oh examination of the work,
taking note both Thursday and
yesterday, it was, apparently, the
general opinion that the same amount of work could be done in less
time with the same amount of
power attached to plows and scrapers,
This machine is a road grader,
pure and simple, and, no doubt,
would do good work in trimming
tip macadam or gravel roads which
bave worn into ruts, but for such
work as it has been given to do we
are ot the opinion that the $400

Vantage. _______
The two archbishops, nearly all
the bishops, and very many of the
clergy of the Church of England,
have initiated a national campaign,
to begin in June next, against the
alarming growth ofthe secular Sunday. Iu this they will be heartily
secqnded by the ministers of the
f��ee churches, many of whom have
already sounded the note of warning against this crying evil. The
crowds of cyclists that pour out of
j:own on Sunday morning, the over
loaded pleasure trains that run out
pf Paddington and the southern
termini, the crowded parks and
pleasure-spaces, bear witness to the
growth of Continental habits which
have marked this country, and especially London, during the last
ten years. It is high time that a
serious crusade should be undertaken against the breach of the
fourth Commandment,���Ex.
All over the country deep aud
earnest prayers are being sent up
fax the religious "awaking" which
seems so long in coming. There
are many hindering causes���sin,
indifference, half-faith, and other?.
Tliere is also a sin, not so easily detected, but operative in most of our
t-jliurclies, It may be variously de-
s:ribed as "precedent," "conventionalism," "the fear <jf man." We
(ire afraid of what others miiy think
and say if we give way to our inner
promptings, and speak put that
which is within us. Thus many a
pright witness fqr the Master is
paralyzed on trembling tongues;
many an ardent parent prayer is
stifled as it struggles out of halting
lips. It is one of the great sources
��f stretch in revival meetings that
this barrier of silence is broken
through, and ma^y suddenly discover that the gift of utterance has
been given to them* This is one

Welsh revival, *ud it must come in

.Settlers still continue to arrive in

scalded on Good Friday, is getting

hopes 111 another week he will do

The weather remains dry and
sultry, crops are looking fine everywhere. There is also a very large
showing for fruit this year and if
nothing interferes we may look for
a bountiful crop of both large and
small fruits.
Dunn & Kenny, of New Westminster, who recently purchased
the shingle mill at Hazelmere, have
just completed a large dry kiln
20x110 teet, and commenced operations about the 3rd of the month.
They have installed two new ma-
chinas of the Johnston make, and
are turning out a first class article.
The G.N.R. has at last appointed an agent at Cloverdale. This
