' There has been a great deal of political y-os.sip indulg'cd in "during the

This  talk   lias been' stimulate*. '>>*
several  seemingly  independent  sources
Tlie Hon, Messrs. Mcllride '"* and
Green have been manifesting a great
desire to get close lo the people and
have been busy touring and promising-. '
Mr. Ilawlhornthwaite has been doing sonic louring, too, and amidst .1
all Mr. Koss has gone down to the
coast. -       .   '     '
All these things coming so elos.'l-,*
upon each oilier have added -/est l*»
the speculations indulged in by tlw
potytuvil proij,tir.f.tiiVv'l'ors who a're
trying to determine whether il means
a general election in only a bye-clue
lion in Kunie district. A majority
of the prophets hoiu-vci, seem to incline to the opiiiimi that the latter
is the object ainied at and here in
Fernie some wire pulling is evidently
going on. (iovernineiil supporters,
socialists, liberals and labor men are
all, 'watching tor oi»j)o(riu|iiilie.s lo
■ strengthen their positions with the
probable result lhat the opposition
to a weak and discredited government
is being divided in such a' maimer as*
to completely niiMilv the will of Unpeople iM the district if persisted in.
This is exactly the object aimed at
by the element which hopes, as a result of such schisms, to strengthen
its hold upon the powers that Ik- at
Victoria, and which, if successful, will
make ol socalled popular government
a delusion and a snare.
o This district has lieen represented
for the last lour years by a member
who received only a little more.than
»ne-third of the votes- cast at th*
. last provincial election', and who can,
in uo sense, except a technically legal one, be said to represent the pet-
pie of his riding. Wc'do not say
this as a reduction upon the member, but as au instance of how far
short   oiir system'-'.of popular 'goverii-
of judgment Avhere lots of money will
lie of' no avail, and the poor'-fwilh a
clear record "will "occupy the-.high pos
itions i while the society refugee ■ who
counted oh lots of money saving the'

The above from the Cranbrook Her

most people think of such mercenary

bad legislation brought in by the
Mcllride government and it. wishes to

of his justification of liis pafl? ?B keep
ing alive a government by""a party,
which he loudly proclaims as dishonest. lie most vehemently declares it

Mr.   .M.elliide's , conserva'tive   apologists  scout the  idea that  he   is    held

forced the c)i>veriimeiit lo adopt uieas-

Mr.   Meltride, to  keep himself   and   as-

■oyeiniiienl at   Victoria   that   is  wiling to   hold on  to  ollice   under either

There are many, niativ reasons why

ailed in so iniiiiy ways that a mere

'iccomes tiiesoine, but all these short

uieii to hold responsilble positions who

IRON PROSPECTS
A Great Industry that is yet to be
Developed—Coast has great
Deposits of Iron.   r
Interviewed in St. I'aul,-' in a further slai'l.-iiHint--' reg'.Y^iuy-. Calitat.1iaii
railway afiaiis, l'-eMih-iit. J. ,1. Uill,
ofAne Great  Northern,  sain:    „
"If yon are going to builil a railway, you must know what a country
produces and what it., can produce
with a 'profit, and if people will engage in that production. It is necessary lo niak-.- the country prosperous in order to make the road prosperous. Canada west of Winnipeg
all the way lo the sea is, a productive coiiiiilry. ' It produces Uni-ai'iegc
of a most pi<>litiihlc character in its
.win.ul, barley, oats, fruit, vegetables
minerals,   coal and lumber.      "
"Do you believe that Western Canada will be a manufacturing country?"
"Some day and on a ve-r-y large
scale,"
"Where iron and coal are close together?" '
"Yes, and on the coast."
"Where are thc best places for es-
tafliiishiiijg iron, industries.-'
- "There1 is an n.b'indance of iron of
very high 'quality along both the
west and north coasts of Vancouver
island, on Texada, aud, other islands
along the coast, and j^eat deposits
of coal iu,)that' same country, > and
there is an abundance of iron on the
west side of the maii'ii range of the
"Rocky mountains, together with an
abundance of good coking coal in the
Crow's Xest region ' on the east side
of the' main range.
"Where..will the market be?"   ' . ,
"The'Orient;.for a time will'furnish
n good market, but China has its
own   coal and .iron,   probably the
largest' undeveloped resources of iis
kind in the. world, but Canada ' has
the. high seas, ha'snlt it? and with the
eoal and iron close to the high seas
there . wouldn't beany trouhle finding a market. The chief -grologist at
Harvard is , suilhori-ty .for the statement  that     iron , ore. is.'Jgetting  very
scarce' in Great Britain,, France and
Germlany, and thus *Rnropc will be
one of  the.  great markets  for  Canad
ian iron  and  steel. '
■■"They are manufaeturing iron and
steel in Canada already, and • there is
a great, iutiire' lor that industry, because. Canada has the materials from
which iron and steel are made. The
consumption   of these  products is
enormous. Fifteen years ago they
look eight million tons of iron-ore
from lake Superior; this year forty
millions of tons. The ore and sirip-
piugs of other material to get at
the ore that are moved every, three
years from lake {Superior i<qual ' in •
quantity the material dug out of the
Panama°eanal. Xow, at the, rate of
forty million tons per'year the whole,
of the isron in lake Superior will be
exhausted in forty years. With that
condition demonstrated in front. of
ns,, Canada has no reason to lie uneasy as to what will become of lier,
ores.jj
, "There will be a good deal of railroad iion used in the next few years
in Canada' Mr.  Hill?"
"Ves."
"Do you think they will get it from
the states?"
Xo, I should think llriiish Columbia would seel \vh.il a* jj-irid ojppoir-

and steel industries."

"Would you prefer to',purchase your,
rails for Canadian railroading*:) m
Canada?"
"Why certainly; we should be very
glad to (see some rail industries built
iip. I shall, be disappointed.if they
are not.
"Can't they manufacture cars and
locomotives there?"
"There, is nothing to prevent. 'I'iwy
are already putting in an American
locomotive establishment near Montreal, ahd it is doing well, but thai
is a long way from the west to get
material. ..They can make locomotives,

INCIDENT OF ROYAL WEDDING

Km-.. ;*
Returning parties from Madrid,
who -went' there lo see tliat 'magnificent pageant, the Spanish royal wedding, have -brought some reailly , delightful stories bac kwith ihem-alAnil
lln. young king and his beide. The
most delicious of them'.was told by
a lady iu waiting in a "Mayfair boudoir
the oilier day and -. as already the story of all lhe ladies'- clu"l*f-. It happened on the wedding day. The bride and
groom had been made one and,were
apparently as lively as crickets after
the nia'ny g;eo;tgj.*oiis ceremonies that
tired out everybody else. The. great
ball and reception had begun ■ at. the
palace. Alfonso and Victoria : had
been sealed on. the throne, rind"' had
received the. homage of the grandees
for an hour.'The royal ipiadrille was
over and general dancing-and [ prom-.'
enadingwas" going' on. The ■queen-mo-'
tlu-v stood in rather a large group,
which.' included lhe°priiice- and princess
of Wales, otlior, foreign royalties and
Home ,of their lords and • ladies in
wailing, They were talking animated
ly, when suddenly the queen-mother
slopped   and   looked   about her,
She'missed their majesties, the bride
and Ihridegroom. She is a great stickler I'or eliqiiette, is the jqneen mother
She, descried one of King Alfonso's
pert'onal nide-da-qmmp ami beckoned
him lo her. He is a particularly
youthfui ollice'r, a playfellow of the
fcingi and only recently appointed. The
■queen-mother told him to find the
king nl once and demand his presence
The youth bowed and departed. They
do things early in Spain, for it .was
then just 9 o'clock at ,night., In ten
minutes the " youthful aide-de-camp
returned out of breath and in a very
excited stale, and interrupting the
■queen-mother's conversation blurted
out:
"Oh, your majesty, I cannot deliver you 1. message'. Their majesties
have gone "to bed*' the bedrqpm doors
are lot-hod and -chamberlains guard
the .1,-ulerooms. They ' would no'l'—"
but the queen-mother stopped ' him
and waved him away. The royal cir,
cle was tliiin'bfonnded and'for the mo
ment disconcerted. . Nobody dared
laugh,'but'-lnirghtcr bub'bled over
their facts ' nnd their eyes sparkled
with mirlli. The .queen-inolh'er immediately broke up lhe circle, ,but not be
fore she had . whispered . an epi/;"ra'iii
"in^vlre-ear- of^thTr-priiiccss"-or"V,*a'i<*F*7
which'was'loud enough lo be caught
by the  others.   "The  poor  children,-'
slit said, "they, are almost too bien-
tot"". She spoke, of course, in tlw
universal diplomatic languajge,French
and I find it;very hard to do the
word properly into- English. But
what astonished, everyone was when
two hours- later*, .the-young king' and
his -ty-jiishii.-g bride'made their reappearance and joyfully .led the way to

HELLO GIRLS'AND AIRY   HOSE
<
New York—Influenced hy the, crusade against the impropriety of open
work hosiery, bare arni!- atid diap^ian-
ousf summer dresses, 'and'aju appeal
by Dr. Schorner , a well-known clergyman, to business men to slop the
wearing of such garments among the
female employees, the management of
the New York: | telephone exchange has
issued   an   order   forbiddijiig the   girls
o
to wear .short sleeves, "indelicate lios
iery," or "peeknfrioo" or." "Buster
Brown" waists, declaring them all
bad .for business. .
'flic manifesto has* caused gfenoral
consternation," and one of thc girls
when interviewed declared that she
would go on strike rather than* obey
thc order., She added: "Xo manager
can boss,our clothes. Wc are going
to stick to our summer things. We
can do belter' work when we're drcis
ed cool, and if people don't like it
they needn't^, look."
A    large   department   store  has  issued similar orders, and is compelling,
the girls   to   wear long cliffs 'to   conceal their arms exposed  by the short
sleeves. '
The whole summer  season has ..boon
-marked ,by   innovations   .  which have

came to his church in transparent

were much more decent ■ and^ad'ding
"This, is a church, not a bath'house'
The "peekaboo" blouse is. popularly so-icalied .from its, tendency to , attract inquisitive'.ma^uline"' glajtees,"
and is a transparent,1 short sleeved

The ' activity ol the* district attorney's ollice in tunning down' all

largely  due  to the story   told by

entertained a number of guests in a
Broadway restaurant one intjht. Thaw-

Winnipeg, . July "■ if..—Just previous
to; his; ■ departure t\(.r England, William Mackenzie, of the Canadian Nor
thern railway staled that his company would lose no time in-.completing'the branch to Hudson .Day. Already So miles of  this   liile' has  beeii
built,   and as soon   as   the   surveyors,
-3
who arc now in the field have     their
work completed, lenders will lie called for , for the construction of the
remaining 250 miles,
The Canadian Northern has already
:secured aline of steamers willing to*
run between Kl. Clinic-hill and Liverpool. .Many believe ,that within two
or three years the hulk of 'the whoa'
crop will Ik- shipped to Europe !>•
this route, Soon after Christmas' an
icebreaker arrived at Fori Churchill,
from Liverpool and reported .that, she
had no trouble in making thL. trip',
although she was .not mado for such
heavy ice   as   it was expected sho
would 'encounter  in  the  northern  &ea.
Dy way of l'ort Churchill the rail
haul to Europe is about Soo .miles
diorier, which would mean a saving
of fully 20 cents a bushel to the farmer 011 all ihe. wheat sent ,out by
thisi route. Not only wojuld wVeJat
'>e shipped 'out through Hudson Bay
but cattle, lumber and other ' ' pro-
duels of.the northwest, meaning a
vearly saving of millions of dollars
10 the shippers. Although no , . an-
■louiicciiK-nl has yet been officially
uade, il is understood the. Canadian
Vorthern railway expects to be run-
•liiig steamers from Fort .Churchill lo
Liherpool   during the summer  of f9oS.

"Miss Brooklyn was .greatly depressed by lhe'suicide, hut shortly alter
slie went  on  the road   with   the .Pal
mer company..
A few inonths, later/a maid knocking at the actress' 'door in Sao Fran
cisto, became suspicious at the silence', within. .Bursting; in the ,-door,'
she found Miss Brooklyn dead with ,1
'brittle ol carbolic, acid hy , her, side.
She had taken her lile. in the .same
manner as the man-'   she loved.-'
The. double suicide., of the two-well-,
known theatrical persons caused a
great deal of comment and conjecture
along Broadway' where the^two were
known to have been devoted lo each
other.
The tragedy ol Crissie Carlisle is
one of those-pathetic ..stories-, moral-

quotations of "the wages pf sin,',;

' The storyof Evelyn* Granville,./once
a famous Casino beauty,' is even more
litting foe the- ptn of the moralist
than the!tragedy r of Crissie Carlisle,
Evelyn travelled * the path of "real dissipation-which began in the brilliant'
restaurants   of Broadway  and on   the'
boards of  the famous Broaciwav  llu-
-   , ■  i
atres to the   workhouse.
Kiglitecii yearsj-ago ICvelyn '   Granville was one of, the most dashing ol
New   York's   thea'.trictil •l^e-auties.   Xo
youijgj *act ress' was more phott^graphod
than she.    She lived like .a diva, and
her costumes and e.i*uippages were the
envy-of the hard working chorus girl.
It was during the regime of        the
Aroiisbns that she* gained her   , fame.
During.'he'r, theatrical isitccess .she met
Burton   Webster,   a  bookmaker.   Verv
shortly, after as   Mr.- and   Mrs.' Webster-they wenl * to •' live   in   a  fashion-
ti|bli* .l-Joardiiig house in 42nd street.
.Broker Goodwin   appeared.011   ...the
Webster-Granville  domestic  scene, one
day, and as a'result of tin; lieautiful
l*)velyii;s acipiniiilance,   Goodwin  lost
his"life,   Webster   claiming   that      Inlaid insulted Kwlyn and then threat-
•ned him, so he shot the broker. "Web
ster  was  sentenced   to  ao years      at
Sing Sing aud Evelyn sank to       the
'owest depths of degradation,   -,' ■■
