Informal luncheon Given by
Young Liberals.
W. J. Galliher, member for theKoot*
enay division in the Dominion House,
was in the city on Tuesday last paying
an informal visit to his constituents,
and on the evening of that day the
Young Liberal Association of Fernie (a
recently formed society of enthusiastic
young men). tendered. Mr. Galliher a
luncheon at the Waldorf-Hotel.
. After justice had been done to an
ample and well served meal, and the
toast to the King had been drunk with
enthusiasm (no cranks being present),
Dr. Hig_>ins_ president of the Liberal
Association of Fernie, in a few well
chOBen' words, proposed a toast to the
guest of the evening. *. * - ,. -. _
The rising of Mr. Galliher to respond
to the toast of his health was a signal
for an outburst of cheers and the singing
of" For he'B a jolly good fellow." Mr.
Galliher dwelt on, the necessity of all
the Liberal forces standing together,
the young men combining with the
parent association so that no friction
should ^detract from the results' that
might be achieved at the next election,
Mr. .Galliher also advised co-operation
in the selection.of candidates for posii
tions, and warned those concerned, to
guard against tbe clashing of conflicting
interests.- - - -- .- - .    ,
At the conclusion of the speech of the
honorable member, J. W. Nunn, the
city clerk, was called upon to propose
the toast to the Press. With some
referred to the principal dilemna of his
life ,when once he purchased a pound of
butter, which he wrapped in a copy of
the.'1 Winnipeg Telegram," and placing
the butter in an incubator for safoty, it
,was hatched into lyo. This was partici
ularly hard on the editor, of "The
Ledger." "
Mr, Pedler began the responding for
"the'.rrei5s,,on account of. bie agev The
editor of ''ThVFfee Press", was, as he
always is, modest and diffident, ojid tt
tho end of au hour's talking it was
evident he only wants a cassock to
complete his evangelization of the city.
The editor of "The Lodger", followed
Apostle George with his usual auBtority
of thought,       „ ■  .
In responding to tho toftBt ot tho
ladies, Mr. Talt proved himself a master
of his subject, his first sentence eliciting
a round of applause that entirely out'
classed anything from any other speaker,
nnd mado tho remainder of his speech
prosaic in tho extreme,
To Mr. Fisher fell the duty of respond-'
ing to the Young Liberal Association.
Tlio last toast of tbo evening was one
to It. II. Moore, our genial host, which
was drunk vory heartily, tho company;
singing '* For he's a jolly good follow,''
and the orchestra, with absolato disinterestedness, playing " Rule Brlttania,''

"The peace conference at. The Hague
has 'completed its task. It discussed
the problei is of war largely from
the 'viewpoints of the war specialists.' Undoubtedly much good has
betn accomplished through this dis-

in the future.
But war has ;-not been abolished.
That was uot .'the-real purpose of

a report4to vliat body regarding the

the Crow's Nest branch of the C.
P. R.      7,
. He visited Lethbridge, Frank,
Lille, Hillcrest, Bellevue, Blairmore,"
Coleman and Fernie, and found that
there was :i Eihortage of cars to
some extent,during the months * of
April, May, June and July. Winter
extending well into "the spring, tho
equipment was tied up to some extent' in April, aud May. The strike
iu the mines, accidents on. the line,
and-the fact that the railway company was directing its energies to-,
ward moving the previous season's
grain before the new crop came in,
accounted for- the shortage in June
and 'July, but at the time Dillinger
was there, about Aug. 20,, there were
more cars on hand than were ■ required. - ' . ■ ■ '    •
.Since   July,   Dillinger  says,    cars
for ' Canadian coal-    on the  Crow's'

maintainin*,- the., supply. The mines
shipping domestic coal have not been

There is a kind of goodness abroad
that is enough to make decent, men
and women' breathe the Pharisee's
prayer, "God, I thank thee that* I
am not'as other'men are.!' The kind
of goodness'that walks about .with
the placard/about its neck", "I"*,,am
goad,",and turns tip its nose at
everything that is not squared to its
miscroscdplc standard of holiness,
must matte ■ devils laugh as well" as
angel's weep. We have known' men
who were to good, that%the song of_
the little birds on'Sunday-disturbed
the" sanctity of their Sabbath
thoughts, while for a*' human .-being
to whistle on the Lord's day. was.'an
"awful desecration." .Some of'.these
were men to good that they could
hot live with their wives nor get
along1 with their "children. The goodness that secludes';_ itself and finds
expression in ascetic criticism of che
world, in general, and other Chris-'
tians in particular, is a kind concerning which we' may well pray,
'■Good Lord deliver us." It is born
of selfishness just as much as "beer
guzzling," with", the advantage, i'
favor, of tho latter, as the guzzler
usually shares his pleasure. ' "He
that ■ separateth himself seeketh*. bis
own desire,' saith Solomon. 'Look
out that yoar goodness'.is not' conceit, prejudice or a bad liver."Goodness ' and.' sweetness are, inseparable.1
You can't1 palm- off. that • wretched
counterfeit- compound of narrowness,,
selfishness and egotism as the pure
thing. Tlie world "does not make
many mistakes' in its estimates '• of
riien." You- nre valued at your worth.

Religion "that letb a man steal extra ' discounts and allowances    from

cross-eyed." A man may be an elder,

but if ho'works the flim-flam   game

religion is not worth the powdcr.it

Wo; would like to know, the'difference
between a man who gets a lot    of
goods and holds up the seller for an
extra three per cent, discount, with
the alternative of having them ' returned, and the     highwayman.-who

a dark night and requests the privilege ■   of cm* mining     your purse or
your watch. ■ The man who can make
tho distinc-ion will beat the    devil

A   straibut-    line,   can't' be,   too
straight, a circle can't be too round,
a square can't be too square,    out,
caft be too "honest.". When you find
acyone sticking up for-zig-zag honesty, put -\our pocketbook in"'a safe
plice, and go business with him in
sp.'*   cash only.   The  man who,    is
ho.'isse only when it suits his pocket
doss   not   reed the   jimmie   or   the
sandtag to     make,**him a first-class
thug.   These are tho kind'of people,
who think a man is too honest when
he rdeals a3 squarely with the innocent   child   or   poor old negro   who
comes to his   ' establishment as:he_

It is an a\ ful comment on >,,society
that men who aro particular''ln" regard to Doing honest with tholr fellows   arc regarded     as "peculiac,"'
and aro pointed out on the   street
as objects of curiosity.   It is strnngo
too that the critics seldom   rcallzo

to the industrial world to help in

MI was-Utterly ■ helpless with sciat-
lea." I cculd not'move.in-bed without . Doctors treated me, but I did
hot improve I used Dr. Williams'
Pink Pill-.-.; and' today' ami a well
woman.:'   This  tribute  to  the'mer
its of Dr. Williams'    -Pink Pills   is
old subscriber's words is most truly,'made by Mrs.  Chas. F. Haley,"    of
Yarmouth", N. S. . Two -years - ago
she suffered most. severely from an
attack '. of sciatica, and „ for • a * number of months' was.an invalid confined to her bed.- She" further states:,
"It is impossible ,for me to describe
the-pain from which I suffered. I
endeavored to continue my profession as a music teacher, but was
forced.' to give it up."- The doctor
said the - trouble' was sciatica, but
his treatment did not help nie! I
could' scarcely take a step without-
the most * acute - pain - shooting
thiough my back , and down the
limb.' Finally I Look to my .bed and
lay there perfectly helpless, and
could 'hot "move without aid.. _' The
pain was never absent.. I consulted
another doctor,' but with no better
results, and I .began to think I could
always bo a sufferer. One day a
friend who' .was in to see me 'asked
why I did' not take, Dr. Williams'
Pin'* Pills,' and on her advice I decided to.do so. The result was* beyond my most hopeful-expectations.
All, the-pains and aches disappeared
and Ibave never since been troubled
wilh sciatica. I have no hesitation
in recommending Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills for ihe trouble from which. I
suffered," -'     '  .
When the blood is'"poor the nerves
are starved;  then  comes  the agony
of sciatica,''•.neuralgia,' or perhaps
partial' paralysis... ; Dr. , Williams'
Pink Pills, actually.make new,"rich-
red blood, which feedB" the starved
nerves, drives out pain and restores
health; It is because these pills actually- make new blood" that they
cure.sUch common ailment's as rheumatism, anaemia, backaches and
headaches, heart palpitation; indigestion, and1 the pa nful. irregularities of growing girls and women. You

According to the statistics of the Patent office 75% of all money is
invested directly or indirectly in patents.
All big inventions have been sneerod at and turned down, and stock went
begging at a low price, and not one person in a thousand took advantage of
the opportunity to buy the stock. For example, Mr. Westinghouse, inventor of
the now famous air-brake, was kicked out of his own father's factory.; Kelly, the
inventor of Bessemer steel, was called crazy, Bell Telephone stock went begging,,
as also thousands of others too numerous to mention.
Mostly all the big fortunes have been made through patents, or brains
as it should be called.
What is ti stockholder in pur company! He; is a partner. His stock
represents liis interest.. If lio wishes to sell his stock he can do so.   The books
aro open to ovory shareholder for inspection.

Stock purchased now may lay the foundation 'of-a■'fortune for lite.
Thia new'propeller will; In'our opinion, make a great saving in coal and
machinery, and on that account leave more space for merchandise in a vessel. It
will go at any speed desired, and is perfectly safe, as it can bo repaired in case of
breakage at sen or elsewhere- without going Into dry dock.
