Advocates the Oagani/.ing of
a Third Party-He Alleges That tho Old Parties Are Controlled by
the Railroads" — Conns
Out 'for Public Ownership.
A special despatch to this morning's News-Advertiser from Winnipeg
announces ihe fact that Mr. Joseph
Martin of Vancouver addressed a
meeting of about 500 people at Selkirk Hall Thursday night, speaking
for an hour on Canadian politics. Mr.
Martin declared that both Liberals
and Conservatives were bad, and advocated the organization of a third
parly, having as its main object purity in public affairs. Both parties in
Mr. Martin's opinion were under the
control of the big railway companies,
and to remove this he advocated public ownership.
He declared thai Sir Wilfrid I.aur-
ier was not a man of great ability. He
had no more 10 do with running the
government than he (Mr. Martin)
had. The government was run by
Hmi. Charles Fitzpatrick,
Mr. Martin condemned the action
Ol the Lieutenant-Governor of Sai-
'katchewan in calling upon Hon. Waller Scntt, instead of Mf. Haultrdn to
form a government, and hoped thai
the taller would triumph at the polli.
Both parties were rotten, and the
speaker wanted lo know if •jwt are

in llie people of Canada tn clean the
bootllen of both parlies out, and to
form a new parly, a parly which

Reiterates Statement as to Quarter
Century's Activity.
\ Chicago despatch says lhat William J. Bryan, who is in Chicago attending the banquet which the Jefferson club gave him on the eve of
his departure for a tour of llie world,
reiterated his Intention 10 remain in
politics for 2» years, notwithstanding
the jolts administered to him by the
voters of the United States.
In the course of an interview on
.lolitical matters, il was hinted that
he planned to forget politics during
his year of travel in foreign lands.
Forget politics? No, indeed," said
Mr. P.ryan, emphatically! "I fully intend to take an active interest in politics for many years to come. I shall
study public questions while abroad
and send back considerable correspondence during my absence. I have,
tried to make il understood on several occasions that 1 mean to stay in
politics for at least 25 years yet."

On Tuesday evening a shooting affray almost occurred between an cx;
cited Frenchman by the name of
Victor and Special Constable Gibson.
It'appears lhat the Frenchman was
in the barroom of Ihe hotel with a
couple of other of his countrymen
when he and one of them started a
wordy quarrel in their native language. Victor and his companion
rushed into the adjoining billiard
room where Mr. Gibson happened to
be. The constable quickly siud up
the situation and attempted to interfere, but Victor was by this time
practically out of his mind, muttered
something about shooting his companion, and took to his heels. Mr.
Gibson, though unarmed, followed
him to his shack, back ol The Express onicc, to prevent him returning
with a weapon 10 shoot the other
Frenchman. He rusiicd inside and
in a few seconds came out with a big
revolver in his hand, and, of course,
ran into Gibson, who tried to stop
him. The enraged Frenchman, grasping the gun in both hands, pointed it
fairly at Gibson's head, jabbering all
the while thai he would kill his com-
ipa>niou and the constable. Mr. Gib-
on showed his good sense in not arguing with a drunken man holding a
cocked revolver firmly in both hands,
and so withdrew from any further interference. Hy this time, however.
the other Frenchman had cleared out.
Constable Dick has issued summonses
ind started, in pursuit of the gang.
It appears that the Vancouver police
have Wen watching this, lay-out of

here have made up llicir minds on
Ibis point.

him success in efforts soon to be
made for procuring his pardon.
Blind For la Years.
After Kelly had been in prison ,1
little more than 20 years he became
stone blind. For 12 years he' sat in
darkness. Then a New York professor visited Sing Sing. In passing
through the hospital ward he noticed
the blind convict. "I should think
this case ought to be cured," remarked the'Specialist. Kelly agreed to the
operation, saying he could not be
made any blinder. The operation was
a success and the old man's sight was
completely restored.

As readers of The Express are
aware, the fair or exposition season
is now beginning, and in the next few
weeks thousands will temporarily
give up their accustomed vocations,
garb themselves in their best bibs and
tuckers, as it were, and hie themselves
off to where they can see the biggest
squashes and pumpkins, the best ore
displays, the sleekest and fatlest cattle, the races and the thousand and
one things provided at fair lime to
interest and entertain Ihe average attendant.
These fairs ire a good thing, not
only for tin. community where held,
Ihii for the people at large. It is a
wise thing for the average man or
woman to drop the cares of every
day life and secure a change, where
possible, in witnessing whatever may
be provided. We all know that ti..
much play makes Jack a dull boy.
nnd so it is with work. It henents
our minds and bodies in no inennsid-
■erable degree to secure an entire
change of environment, even for a
short lime.
North Vancouver opens the season
of fairs tomorrow, The Horticultural Society have gone to great pains
to make a creditable showing, which
everyone connected therewith is sanguine of success. The whole thing
hinges now on queen's weather. In
addition lo thi, the North Vancouver
Aquatic Club will hold its carnival of
sports. President Diplock and Secretary Egan, together with the committee, have devotui • good deal of
time and energy lo make the proposed events all to be desired. One
thing sure is that the public may be
assured of a line afternoon's entertainment.
Among the other shows of interest
to North Vancouverites may be mentioned the Dominion Exhibition at
New Westminster, from September
27 to October 7. This lair is more
pretentious than ever before, and
thousands ol dollars are being spent
this year to make it attractive. That
it will he a successful event is already
assured, as thousands all over the

There can be no doubl that the
movement embodied in the sectarian
clause ol Sir Wilfrid Laurier's Autonomy bill is French as well as Papal.
Those who have not forgotten the
line taken by its author al ihe lime
of the Riel rebellion will understand
lhat he is qualified to direct it in bolh
its aspects. Among the signs ol the
movement of race is the angry manifesto of the Archbishop of St. Boni-
lace against the use ol the English
language in his domain. Hut it is
likely that in the simple soul of the
habitant any ambitious designs have
been formed, though by his superior
fecundy he may be gaining grouad
and supplanting us in certain districts. The really aggressive force
against which wc have lo be on our
guard is that of ihe hierarchy and the
lesuit, directed by Rome, and wielding the solid Catholic vote. A curioui
symptom ol this is the proposal to
change Ihe French Canadian flag
Irom the tricolor to one with the Sacred Heart, surrounded by fletir-de-li«.
We need not be greatly alarmed. The
Northwest is not likely to fall into
French hands. The rival elements of
immigration there are far loo large
and strong. We need 10 do nothing

The Government is evidently up
against serious trouble regarding
the operation of the new act put
through the House last session.
The financial arrangements will
not work, and if they did they
would bring a hornets' nest about
tho ears of the Government.
This has been brought to our
notice by a resolution of last meet-j
ing of the municipal council ol
North Vancouver to have these li-
nancial arrangements considered
and reported by tbe finance committee.
(1) After the 1st of January the
Government has only a provision
ol S40 a month (or each teacher's
salary, and nothing whatever foi
general expenses, it being understood that the additional hinds
will be, provided in each locality
for the balance of teachers' salaries
lor these expenses.
(si The new act does not come
in force, and cannot be operated
to any extent till the istol January.
13) Alter that time school
trustees will make up their estimates of what they will require.
The estimates they give the local
assessors, and they give them also
a list ol all who should be
assessed to pay, either in respect
to real property, personal property
lor personal income.
(j i'TIic' assessor has then to
make up an assessment roll ol the
value of the real estate, personal property, or income, and
issue the usuai assessment notices.
A court of revision must thereafter
be held by the council to hear
appeals and.give decisions.
1 j) Theiiiunicipal collector then
makes out a special collector's roll,
and issues collector's notices, all
independent of bis ordinary work,
and over a month must 1 lapse alter
then before lie will receive any
id| All this must necessarily take
till the close ol the school
holidays Inline any hinds
are available from this local source
for tin* general expenses of. the
school, and (or maintaining the
teachers' salaries. Who is to pay
these expenses and salaries in the
(;.! All this procedure, at a coat,
as regards their school district,
which cannot will be less than Irom
jit jo to $100, must lie incurred to
collect a fund of about Jtjoo (or
school purposes, and this must be
levied on ever) working man's income and on his personal property
—over anil above bis three-dollar
revenue tax—as well as on all the
eal estate in thuicho d district.

Detailed accounts of the destruction and suffering caused by the
great earthquake shocks which
visited the Kangra Valley, jn India,
last April, are just reaching the
Western world. The Empress, an
illustrated monthly published in
English in Calcutta, contains a
series ol studies of the earthquake
and its effects, with a recital of
some thrilling personal experiences
and reproduction of actual photographs. The manager of very large
tea estates near Palaniponr gives
his impressions and experiences
as follows.
"On the morning ol the 4th of
April, at about f> a. 111., we were
disturbed in our sleep by a slight
earthquake, quickly followed by a
severe one, and lastly by the worst
shock of all, which appeared to
. conic Irom the northeast and having a midden circular action travelling tow aids the west. The lirst
one I tool; un notice of, thinking
it was one ol the many sligh
shoiks oil and on experienced up
here. When tint second shock
came, I sat up in bed and railed
out to my wife to coin*' to the
Window.    I   bad  hardly done   so
■ . when I S'jw the highest wall ol our
bedroom fall in like a torrent on
my poor sleeping child; then all
' became dark   with   fearful   dust
' from the falling walls.    I felt suffocated,  and   pushed   my   hand
■'' through the panes of glass in the
window into which  I had crept;
bad I not done so I should have
been killed by the wall that fell in
,.".'    ton the head of my bed.    I shall
' < :'!'" never forget those few moments
' ;     that   appeared   like    years—the
' 'nuise of the (ailing masonaiy,
smashing of beams, planks, and
slates. I bad fully made up my
mind that wc should all perish.
Whirl the shock was over I opened
the window and dropped into the
lower veranda, rushed out, and
cried out (or help. No one .could
be seen—all bad lied lo the villages
to help their (riends and relations.
A fearful sight presented itself to
:. myeyea. All our houses (with the
exception ol the malt's hut) were
levelled to the ground, including a
magnificent factorylinilt ofoutstone
which my poor old -father had
lately built. All was still as death
save lor the wailing of a man who
afterwards turned out to be my
■' head clerk. After a few minutes
had elapsed I succeeded in getting
a lew of niy household servants to-
• gether and dug with bare lingers
among limestone and plaster for>
my only child. We had to make
a coffin out of planks taken from
the debris, bury her without ceremony in a quiet sequestered spot on
the tea estate. To look around
the valley, nothing but desolation
niicts the eye. the once pretty
little villiagcs with their
bluish-white walls and slated rools
mixed here and there with
thatched buildings, all levelled to the ground.   Wc have

this is not all. Wc arc afraid we
shall lose thousands yet, owing to
our terror-stricken workmen and

A great many families have been

('On the night of the 3rd of April,
about two thousand victims arrived

was heard, and before the people
could realize what it was, they felt
the terrible shock, and within four
seconds the whole town was destroyed. The shock lasted three

done in the firsf few seconds.
About two thousand people were
buried beneath the ruins of the
