it would be unwise ,in \\xo light of

good expression which brings to

be that the chiel-of police can. better

themselves. ■

The Triple Somersault
The acrobat in pink tights sat down
on a black velvet cushion to rest. Only
three men,- he -said; have ever thrown
a triple somersault.   .
One of the elephants that the acrobat
had been leaping^over stepped out-of
line.    He looked at it fiercely,■ and it
returned to its place with clumsy haste.
- The first man to throw a triple som-
ning to help a Hohenzollern into. the. ersault, he said, was Joshua Roche-
Mr. VV. L. ^Keizner declares that in a
recent issue of the Spokesman. thai if
the mines of the world were closed up
thc human family would, in the space
of fifty years, retrograde to a few scattering bands bf nomads who would
exist on root*;, grain etc. Suppose the
farms, orchards and gardens were to
close up shop how long could we live
on iron, coal, gold and silver? *.
A couple of years ago King Alfonso
of Spain was causing his attendants
some trouble by insisting^upon discarding his shirt and endeavoring to reinstate Adam's costume as : to apparel.
This weakling of a King thinks he has
a "divine right" „ to ' introduce dress
reform arid some of his subjects seem
to agree with him.
Emperor William II of Germany en>
tertnins,siniiUr notions as to his divine
powers;- and'littely, one Mr. Baer, of
coal fame,- took it into his' head to
make statements' which would indicate
a tendency upon his part to be* consid-
ered in the same category as , these
other asses*
There are other people who, judging by their actions official as well as
unofficial seem to wish to be classed'
along with- these gentlemen of puffed
up opinions as to their divinity of right
to make fools of themselves.
The oft repeated assertion tbat
corporatloua have no souls does not
carry the conviction with it that it
once did*, and people of intelligence
are beginning to see that there has
been method In Its use.
A corporation has soul and conscience In just so far as its owners
and officers are soulful and console."*-
clots. Its methods of doing business
will reflect the real motives which
actoate the iidivldoals who own the
"Steoaf'aadrdireot—ita raffato through"
boards of directors and managers.
The threadbarepracficajra the'
part of tAe maoLajfers of passing the
blame of unjust acts up to a board of
directors wbo-lii ttffn. exeaiev th'em-
aelves by pAsilng the responsibility
oh to tho'-"gockboldors who demand
that their Block must bring dividends
does not excuse wrong doings.: In
many cases the boards of directors of
large corporations are the chief stockholders in the /concern and the attempt to make .people believe. tbat
Smith the director is not responsible
for the -greed of Smith the stoekowner
will nolonger deceive. Avery, recent and glaring example ot this kind
of shirking of responsibility has developed from the investigations now
' being made Into the affairs of tbe
Equitable Life Insurance company of
New York. When Mr Alexander
proceeded to take the hide off the
back of Mr. Hyde of' that Institution
ho little dreamed what the result
would be; No one believes that
it was tho intention of Mr, Alexander
to expose to the world the rottenness
which seems to pervade ev ery nook
and cranny bf that, hitherto supposed
benevolent, institution. President
and manager along with favored directors were allowed to borrow tbe
funds of the company to be used In
other Institutions controlled by the
same fellows. 80 that the larger
share of the earnings derived from
the money paid into their bands for
the benefit of widows and orphans
went into tbe pockets of these pirates
The extent to which theso unlaw*
ful speculations have been carried
has not as yet been fully determined,
but enough has been unearthed u»
show that tbe frauds are much more
extensive   than at first supposed.
Many directors of high financial
standing have resigned and some
w|ll doubtless be made to pay
severe penalties for their misconduct.
All these people wlll tell us that
'-corporations have no souls" and if
that cue Is a fair sample no one will
have the Hardihood to deny tbe truth
ot tbe assertion In this Instance, but
the soul of that institution is exactly
woat (ts directors, managers and
itockownert have mads It sod It ts as
hoaMt attd (jootolracbus as .are tbe
■c^artcwiiclaMttot these looters

what applies to one tYirpt-j-rattoo ap

supposwd that this kind of business
is cottliisd lo one large corporatlotj

Instances and ft (s to be hoped (bat
tbs spirit of enquiry will not be
allowed to lapse Into indifference.
I am quoting Barnutn now. Roche
was doing double somersaults from a
springboard over elephants, - the same
us I am doing.' He made an unusually
fine leiip, turned twice in the* air very
fust, lost control of himself, not knowing his head from his heels,' and, by
jingo, was carried by the momentum of
his first two turns quite through a third
that landed him, as neat as you please,
on his feet. He got a lot of unmerited
praise for that accident, but he - never
tried a triple somersault again:
.-' Back in the seventies there' was. a
young Kcntuckian w!k> could throw a
triple somersault sometimes. He was
never sure though. Maybe, in a month
he wouldn't succeed once. Furthermore, he could never light from a triple
on his feet. ,
There is a tragedy connected with
the triple's third thrower. ; A Swedish
acrobat once bet $30 that he could do
the three turns. . He made a terrible
leap from the spring-board, shot . up in
the air, actually,, succeeded in going
over three times, and came down on
his hands. The $20 was handed out
io him with congratulations, but he declined it.
"--No, he said, I  didn't light  on  my
feet.   I'll throw you a better one. .
And he got on the board. again,
soared up in the air like a . bird, and
turned twice and a, half, lit on his head
and broke his neck.'   ,   , ■
After a man has turned two somer-
salts in the air, he loses control of himself. The only way to turn three is to
leap as high as you can, and throw
your first two. somersaults as fast as
you can, Maybe the momentum of
these two will carry, you through the
third and land you on your feet. Maybe it will only carry you half through"
and land you - on your neck. The
triple somersault,' yoii see, is a dangerous . business, and one ' best left
alone.      '.

Cardinal (X-bbohs,'head of the Ro-
inzni^tholicchurch in United States,
gave out a remarkable interview last
week in whiclv.he discusses the most
menacing coiiditibne-- of the- present
time in this counrtry. Y ~'i"
Tainted money, commercial corru]p-
tion, the mania ot money made millionaires, the.upgrowth.and ..rapid" growth'
of graft and greed iii .finance and' public life, and, iii his opinion,'   the great
evil of all, the increase in the number
of divorces in this country, where com
merited upon by Mr. Gibbons..
' In the midst of a discussion of the
money madness of thc age the cardin
al was asked:
Do you think the giving awny of
portions of their millions in nny way
palliates the offenses against society of
of the great money makers of the
The cardinal's smile was one of- the
quixzicnl appreciation.
You refer to the tainted money which
hns been so commonly discussed? I
have never had occasion to reject any
tainted money. For this reason it may
be said that I am not qualified to
speak on the matter. Should I ever
he confronted by this embarrassing
necessity for official decision I should
not lot long in giving it.
, It is largely to the press we must
look, nol only for the discovery and
exposure of these conditions, hut for
their correction.    The revelations of
these dnys nre being made   by   the
newspapers, and in this bringing to
lifiht nf questionable deeds and quest*
ionable motives is to be found a' rem
edy for evil exposed.    The press is
probing   deeply  Into   (he   condition
we   nil   deplore,  and, the   deeper
the prob sinks  the   more,   apparent
becomes the seriousness of the sltua
tion. '
Through this deep and merciless
probing wilt come the healing. Publicity is Ihe one agent we must look to
at this time to curb tlie evils we
know to exist.
In nothing has Ihis been so clearly
shown as in the, recent life insurance
scandal. The country lias been shocked by then exposures of evil deeds by
those in high places, and it has not
been a pleasant thing (o see the men
who have stood so well in llie public
e»(c<in HfipjKiJ of tbtttto attribute*
with which they have been popularly
invtttcd. It has been a severe blow
to public confidence and has done
more than anvthlntr tlte to develop
■ vpirlt of cynical pessimism.

the streets and alleys'of the city for the
. purposo'of laying water- pipes^ and
.orectlhff,telephone aiid electric light
pole's, but not the exclusive right to do
; no, as it'was. understood that, if  the
city so desired, ttiey could put in -t^iolr
< owu' water, plant. . The ..principal
reasons which actuated the people in
., this Incorporation nwjve was that they
could put in a water and sewer system
both of which were nrgeut necessities.
' Tho water system (n use at tho time of
,   tto disastrous Are a year ago laHt April
< proved * delusion ■ and a snaro, . and
when the lire fiend came upon them
theywere as helpless as babes ih thi*

At Ihe meeting of the Board of Tradi*
held a few days after the flro,    Mr.
Lindsay, In answer to .questions from

- as,reported hi the Free Press of May
Mr. Cr.eo aslted Yx\r. Lindsay what at*.
■ -fltude the company would take toward*
the municipality on the water worlm
system. ' He understood that the mnn*
lulpsl act contained a clause by which
a municipality could be obliged to pur*
etas* an existing wntor svstom from a
private corporation before it could con-
, struct ons of Its own. Considcrablo
discussion followed and Mr, Lindsey
allayed all fears by assuring tho Board
town thoy would never force Us salt

As the water supply (or tho town lisil

pretext that it would be ' wise to do so
until Mr. Lindsay's proposition could

to  make the following suggestions flSPyour consideration:   '

. are-made subject to the approval
of my Bpard of Directors, but I,

feel that tho Directors will endorse whatever I suggest.
There is nd use, in a communication of thin kind entering ipto

present water controversy.   Suf
* nee it to say that two water sys
, terns will hot pay either party in
' Fernio. As wo have a svBtem
. and are unwilling to sell h\I am
prepared to make the following
proposition, in consideration of
the Municipality refraining from
installing a wator service,-duriug
the period covered by this agree
. ment.        ■-.,'-., ■••.».
1.--I will furnish free water
for as many fire hydrants as the'
Municipality cares to attach to
our system, the Municipality to
purchase the existing hrdrants. -
. 2. ;I will furnish freej sufficient
water to, flush the sewers, provided the amount required is not
excessive 1 should , like to" be
advised what the water, requirements, for this purpose will he.
but do nnt anticipate anv difficulty in giving you all your requirements. ,   , _, -
8. I will furnish water from
the hydrants for street watering
purposes, at the rate, of $10.00
per month per hydrant..
•■ 4. , I guarantee to have, before
the 1st of October, an 80 lb. pres
sure water service throughout
.the thickly settled portions of the
..Municipality ..- ,, • . , .
. 5. I am prepared to sell all
our water system in/the Cily of
' Fernie, at the end of ten years,
from the'1st day of July, 1905, at
a price to be fixed by arbitration,
if the parties cannot agree. The
Municipality h* not to be obliged
to take over any portion of the
water service outside of the Mun
-icipallty, and-I will free , them
from any bonus which the existing statutes would require them
to pay for the purpose of taking
;Over the service. - , 7  - <, , •
, 6. By that time;Vou will probably wish to. bring your water
supply from Fairy creek, and I
easement for use of right of-way
from the bank of the Elk river to
the limits ofthe Municipality, as
then existing, provided the route'
is left to the selection of this company. I may say In this connec-.
tion, however," that I , think it
would be well to determine what
this route'shall be, because of
possible settlement along the
projected lino of this easement.
I am not prepared to mnke any
undertaking In regard to water
rates, further than to say that
the present ratCB seem reasonable
and I do not know nf nnv reason
why these rates5 should In the
future be increased. I think you
may safely rely upon it that they
will not be increased..
If the ratepayers should wish It
I am prepared to undertake' that
the water to supply,tho  town
shall come from above the Mines.

The trauflporent attempt to tide track
the water bylaw and go on with"'tho
sower system is sufflclontl,y oxpoBed by
the action of James McLean, coko oven
foreman of tbo Conl Co., In his motion
to quash the water bylaw coupled with
the Peacock letter advising the council
to go on with thc sewer system, a nou
producer of revenue, and to drop tho
water by.law, tho only producing asset
left to the city. A.glanco at the list ol
Odlcors and Diroctors of the Dominion
Securities Corporation of which Mr,
Peaqock is manager speaks volumes up
on this point. The ouly thins*;,ldt to
the friends of munidpal ownership of
the water system to do was to move the
quashing of the sewer bylaw upon the
same grounds as those set up by the
friends of the Coal Co.as to the water
bylaw.. This was done and as a.result
both bylaws .will be wiped out leaving
the situation as it wad in the beginning"

We had Hoped to have made jou an offer
for the *100.000,4X80 year bonds of theotty of
Fernie, which you ao advertising for sale, bu,
regret to say that up to the. present we hav
been unsuccessful in Betting our clients in
terested, although we may possibly yet be
able.'to dc so before the time for receiving-
offers expires. If we do not succeed in putting
in an offer, and-you do not succeed in getting
■what yon consider a satisfactory bid for tliem,
say, anything better tlsun par, if you would
give ui the refusal of Ihe bunds for a short
timo. say a fort-nlght or so, we think we could
southern to advantage for you, and possibly
at a considerable premium over par. The fact
is, there are so many municipalities askintr
ror oftprs for bonds of this sort at present, that
our clients are getting tired of making offers,
because it takes time to investigate and make
up their minds that the s"K'urity is satisfactory, jnd if lliey do thi,, they want to know
that thoy can-gut the bonds.if th-jy decide
favorably, go that it is much easier to sell u
bond »uoh as this when a fixed price is stated
that will be accepted, and when the intending purchaser knows that ho can have the
bonds at tlmt price If hedeoides to purchase.
If, therefore, you do not get a satisfactory
ottat.w one that you think worth aooepting,
wewUlcoiisideritafavorifyou wlll arrange
to give us tbe refusual of the bonds in this
way. ■• ',.•*.

. This seems to us a very heavy issue for a

Slightly over4000 and we are afraid that the offers you will get for so large an Issue wlll be

only the $4i),000 forsewers at the present time
and defer tlie wuter work issue till . some
future occasion, we are ofthe opinion thatyci-
would bo muoh more likelv to receive satis,
factory offers. Wo think this view will be
concurred in by most bond dealers. We do
not feel that we would care to make an offei
at the present time for $100,000 of these deben-
tures.       ■ ■
If by any chance it should happen that the
Council finally decide to Issue only the W0.000
for sewers we ahull bo glad to hear from you
further and to de whatever we oan in the
One suggestion I would make and that is
that you have the bouiis issued in denominations of either $500 or S*1,000 instead of 8100. This
is altogether too small a denomination for convenience and you will find that most buyers
objeot to taking a lot of bonds of a very small
denomination instead of a smaller number of
a larger denomination., It is customary to
have bonds issued in denominations of either
t500 or £1,000 and people object to unnecessary
changes in such matters..

The visit of a Canad|an regitpent to
an American city, while weir intended,
may.be the cause of, untoward, incidents wliigb would engender, feelings of
anything but brotherllness between the
two great divisions of the North American continent- Similarly when * a
Yankee" regiment crosses into Canada
hot-headed- individuals may-" provoke
trouble by their fesentmeut of the display of the American burning. -,
- Canadians and United. Statesers are
living lu harmony side by. side.' The
United .States may shake its mailed fist
at Canada, and Canada,' likewise' may
give a "demonstration of force" .near
the border for the benefit of the Yankees. Armies are kept up by countries for theprotection of their own' citizens, both from internecine strife and
foreign' invasion, aiid when Canada's
scarlet,tunicked',troops are paraded
through the streets of a foreign city the
possibilities for trouble are many.

the Ottawa militia at home the country
will not - suffer in.. consequence. „.,..,,

Many years ago when, the. Spectator's party was in power at Ottawa,
and when the Senate" was ready at
all times to do .the bidding of the
Conservative government, the Spectator proposed 'tlie abolition "of "the"
upper chamber as bb.ng,U.eUt*b, and
a bill of expense to the people.' And
now tho Guelph Mercury,,Liberal, its
party being In power,'and the Son-
ate being under lull control ot Sir
Wilfred Lauiior, makes a similar
proposition. . It the Spectator had
spoken as it did when its purty wib
oat of power,,or if the Mercury's article appeared when its party was in
opposition, but little heed would be
given to tho proposal.*- Hamilton
Do yon think Mr. Spectator that
much heed will bo oxercisod now?
