Lord Grey was one of the
speakers at the Peace Conference in New York on Wednesday. 	
Southern Mexico was badly
shaken by earthquake on Sunday
last. It is reported that several
towns have been destroyed.
On Saturday and Sunday last,
6,000 emigrants arrived in Montreal on their way to Western
���Canada.   Many of them expect
to settle in British Columbia.
R. G. Macpherson, M. P. for
Vancouver, was called from
Ottawa to Toronto on the 17th
inst. by a telegram announcing
the death of his mother.
Robert E. Peary, U. S. N., has
been granted an additional three
years' leave of absence. Preparations for another dash toward
the pole have been in progress
all winter. The steamer
Roosevelt is being refitted with
new boilers, and it is expected
that the start will be made in

when they went to school as usual. There is absolutely no trace
of their whereabouts, except the
After much controversy, the
University Endowment Bill passed committee on Thursday of last
week and was reported complete
with amendments. Among these
was one reserving to the- Province
all royalties from any source
whatever, though the money
from timber licences may still go
to the university!
Mr. Hawthornthwaite submitted the amendment asking that
free tuition be driven to every
student who ha�� lived in British
Columbia not lesathan five years.
Dr. Young said he proposed to
insert a similar section in the
voted down.
The Vancouver charter amendments passed second reading as
did tho Fisheries Act, Jurors Act,

and a large number of Provincial
In answer to Mr. Macdonald,
Hon. Mr. Tatlow said that before
the House prorogued he would
have an announcement to make
on the Sabbath Observance Act.
The House adjourned at 10p.m.
till Monday.
A large delegation of lumbermen waited on the Government
on Monday morning to protest
against the proposed increase in
The Great Northern Oriental
Limited, west bound, was derailed at Bartlett, North Dakota
on the 15th inst. Three are reported killed and a number injured.
An earthquake shock was felt
at Kingston, Jamaica, on the
13th inst., which lasted twelve
seconds. Many buildings which
survived the disaster in January
were badly damaged.
Lord Cromer, who has been
British Agent and Consul-General in Egypt since 1883, has on
account of ill health been forced
to resign. Sir Eldon Gorst, who
has had twenty years experience
in Egyptian affairs, has been appointed to succeed him.
The stage running between
Malta and Zortman, near Great
Falls, Montana, was held up by
a lone bandit on Sunday night.
The stage was just entering the
Little Rockies with a consignment of money to pay the wages
of miners at the Zortman Mine.
On Tuesday, McGill University
was visited by the second disastrous fire within two weeks.
The Medical Building was practically destroyed. The cost of
erection was about $50,000, and
it is doubtful whether the insurance will cover one-half the
actual damage.
The melting snow in the
north has caused the Milk and
Missouri rivers to overflow, and
immense areas are flooded in
central and eastern Montana.
Where possible, the Great
Northern Railway Company has
rendered assistance, although
their tracks are washed out in
several places.

Trains on the Canadian
Northern line between Humboldt and Warman, Sask., have
been tied up for the past two
weeks. Over a hundred miles of
track has been blocked by snow
banks and train wrecks. About
1,200 passengers are held there,
and it is reported that the supply of food is scarce.

were found under a settee in the
C. P. R. waiting room. The police authorities are making every
effort to locate the girls. The
general supposition is that they
have been kidnapped.
H. McDowell, who has been
for some time head of the firm
of McDowell, Atkins & Watson,
and who has been interested in
the wholesale firm of Henderson
Bros., has severed his connection with these firms, and will
shortly occupy the palatial drug
store now being fitted up on the
corner of Granville and Hastings
streets, Vancouver. Mr. McDowell, who is widely known as
an active business man, started
the first drug store in Vancouver
after the fire of 1886.
The case of the Bay of Islands
fishermen, which was appealed
in February, is now being heard
in the Supreme Court of Newfoundland. In November last, a
penalty of $500 or three months'
imprisonment, was imposed upon
these fishermen, who were convicted of working on an American schooner during the herring
fishing season. Sir James
Winter, attorney for the appellants, claims that they were
hired servants of American fishermen, entitled under the treaty
to fish.
The strike of coal miners at
Fernie, Crows Nest and Bank-
head has materially affected business throughout western Canada. The cement works in Calgary have already closed down,
at a loss of hundreds of dollars,
and it is expected that other
manufacturers are soon to close.
A report from Calgary says that
it is only a matter of a week or
so when the freight and passenger trains must stop, although an
inquiry at the C. P. R. depot in
Vancouver, brings forth the information that passenger trains
will run as usual.

Mr. Hawthornthwaite then
withdrew his amendment.
The debate was very warm and
compliments were freely passed.
The debate on the Budget again
occupied the great part of the
time, speeches being made by Mr.
Munro, Mr. Eagleson, Mr. King
and Mr. Hawthornthwaite.
Mr. Eagleson termed the Sea-
ton Lake hatchery  "a salmon
slaughter house."
. Mr. Macdonald adjourned the
Mr. Macdonald and Mr. Shat-
ford had a sharp tilt on Friday
afternoon. Mr. Shatford had accused Mr. Macdonald of stating
that he shirked the vote of the
Columbia & Western bill last year,
by showing a wire saying his
father was ill in California and
getting a pair.
Mr. Macdonald replied in a
caustic speech, and Mr. Shatford
hit back, saying that Macdonald's
statement was false. Mr. Macdonald said he would leave it to
the judgment of the House and
the incident closed.
Mr. Bowser closed the debate
on the budget in a vigorous and
sarcastic speech, closing by congratulating Mr. Hawthornthwaite on his new position as leader of the Opposition.
The estimates were gone into
and partly passed.
An evening session was held
and many bills advanced. The
Coal Mines Act amendment for
validating licences in the Kootenay passed second reading.
Mr. Macdonald asked for a
select committee to hear the complaints of Sir C. H. Tupper and
others. Hon. Mr. Fulton said
these would be covered by an
amendment he would introduce
in committee.
Dr. McGuire moved to change
the name of the Vancouver Stock
Exchange to the Terminal City
Stock Exchange, but Mr. Mac-
gowan refused to accept the alteration.   The amendment was
royalties from 50 to 75 cents per
thousand feet. They stated that
owing to the car shortage the
business was in such a condition
that it could not possibly stand
an increase at the present time.
Several delegates claimed that
they would shut down part of
their plants if the increase went
into operation. They asked also
for better security for their licences. They requested that the bill
be allowed to stand over for a
year, and that the Government
appoint a committee of the House
to investigate the conditions in
the meantime.
The Government promised they
would look into the complaints
Consideration of the estimates
occupied the House all the afternoon. Messrs. Oliver and Hawthornthwaite criticised sharply
the appropriation of $65,000 for
improvements at Point Grey, and
also the $5,000 for roads in North
Vancouver. They were unable to
answer the explanation of Hon.
Mr. Cotton and Hon. Mr. Tatlow
that the money was being spent
in the fulfillment of the pledge
made at the auction sale, and
which would greatly increase the
value of the remaining Government property.
Mr. Ross' bill to enforce the
curfew law in unorganized districts passed first reading.
At the evening sitting Hon. Mr.
Fulton moved the second reading
of the amendment of the Land
Act. He announced that the
Government intended to stand by
its policy of increasing the timber royalties from 50c to 75c per
thousand, but, in view of the representations that contracts made
on the 50 cent basis might be interfered with, the increase would
not become operative till January
1st, 1908. He further stated that
under the bill all land henceforth
would be divided into first and
second only, the former still selling at $5 and the latter at $2.50
per acre. Third class land at $1
per acre is abolished.
Mr. Hawthornthwaite and Mr.
Oliver criticised the bill, and Dr.
King moved the adjournment of
the debate.
An act to constitute a court of
appeal passed first reading, as
did also the North Vancouver Incorporation Act, and amendment i
to the Medical Act, Timber Men -
urement Act and Master and
Servant Act.
The following bills passed third,
reading: To revive and continue
the existence of certain companies; attachment of debts, and the
amendment to the B. C. Fisheries Act, 1901.
Dr. King announced that he
had dropped his bill to incorporate Corbin's Kootenay Southern
At Tuesday evening's session
eight bills passed second reading,
all without opposition. Among
them were those providing for a
court of appeal; North Vancouver
incorporation; incorporation of
the Anti-Tuberculosis Society,
and amendments to the Bush Fire
Act, the Dyking Assessment,
Timber Measurement and Rivers
and Streams Acts. The bills to
amend the Land Registry Act
and the Municipal Elections Act
passed first reading. The former
was introduced by Mr. Garden
and the latter by Mr. Hayward.
Dr. King resumed the debate
on the Land Act, strongly opposing the increased timber royalties.
Mr. Bowser moved the adjournment of the debate.
The estimates were again considered in the afternoon, and Mr.
Oliver took occasion to move that
the vote for the Seeton Lake
hatchery be reduced $3,000 as a
censure on Commissioner Bab-
Messrs. Fulton and Hawthornthwaite both spoke warmly in Bab-
cock's defence, and Mr. Oliver's
motion was voted down by a big
The estimates are still unfinished and it is not now thought
likely that the House will prorogue this week.
The delegates of lumbermen
again waited on the Government
on Tuesday morning to protest
against the increased royalty,
but the Government refused to
recede from its position.
A delegation from the City of
Victoria also waited on the Government, requesting that a sum
be set aside for establishing a
normal school in Victoria. They
were promised consideration.
Hon, Mr. Tatlow announced
on Wednesday that owing to representations, the Government
intended to take the increase in
timber royalties out of the Land
Act and hold that section over
till next session, when they will
make such increases as the condition of the industry will warrant. All other parts of the bill
will remain the same.
In the discussion of the estimates during the afternoon, the
Socialists attacked the grant of
$15,000 for immigration on the
ground that it was intended to
aid the Salvation Army.
Hon. Mr. Tatlow said no arrangement had been entered
into with the Army, though
there had been negotiations.
Mr. Macdonald criticised severely the commissions of #23,-
000 given to auctioneers of Point
Gray lands.
Hon. Mr. Tatlow said the bargain had been made by the late
Chief Commissioner.
The Socialists also attacked the
grant for the Salvation Army

al Dairy Inspector, paid a visit to
Chilliwack last week.
While here he organized two
associations for the purpose of
aiding the different dairymen of
the valley in having the individual cows of their herds tested to
ascertain the amount of butter
fat given by each one. One oi'
these testing associations was
formed in Sardis on Friday evening and will be known as tbe
Eden Bank Cow-Testing Association. W. J. Higginson was elected
President and H.Webb Secretary.
On Saturday afternoon a meeting was held in the Court House
and another of these associations
was organized to be known as
the Chilliwack Cow-Testing Association, with A. D. Wheeler as
President and Joseph Scott as
Secretary. After the object of
the association had been explained by Mr. Logan all the dairymen
present were unanimous in their
opinion regarding the benefits to
be derived and were anxious to
avail themselves of the opportunity of having their cows tested,
and consequently became members of the organization.
In discussing the objects of
these associations Mr. Logan explained that there was a wide
variation in the individual cows
of the different herds, and that
no farmer could tell with any degree of certainty which were his
best cows except by weighing
and testing his milk. If a cow
gave a large flow of milk the
owner was very likely to form
the opinion that she was a profitable cow. Her milk, however,
might contain so little butter-fat
that she would not be nearly so
profitable as one which gave a
less amount but of much better
He stated that no dairyman
could intelligently weed out his
poor cows, or grade up his herd, I be done
unless he first ascertained what'
each cow was producing and this
could only be done by weighing
and testing the milk. Mr. Logan
told of a patron of the Cowichan
creamery who adopted this practise three years ago, and has so
improved his herd that last year
he received $990.00 from the
creamery association for the
cream produced from ten cows.
He ventured to state that there
were dairymen in this district
who were milking twenty cows
whose returns were less than
this man was receiving from ten,
therefore these men were feeding and milking ten cows, practically for nothing. He thought
wages were too high to employ
men in milking unprofitable cows,
and the sooner the farmers found
out which were their paying cows
the better.
Mr. Logan explained that the
cost of having this done was, so
far as the farmer was concerned,
practically nothing. The Dominion Government agreed to send a
man here at the same time each
month to test the different
samples of milk, provided the
farmers would agree to perform
their part of the work. All the
farmer is asked to do is to provide himself with suitable scales,
and a glass jar for each cow he
wishes to have testad. Then at
intervals of ten days he agrees to
weigh the milk from each cow,
both morning and night and take
a sample each time for testing.
A preservative put in the sample
bottle prevents this milk from
souring, and at the end of the
month it is delivered at the
creamery along with the weight I
of each cow's milk, when it is
tested and a statement made out
showing the amount of butter-fat
produced by each cow. The value
of this information is only appreciated by those who have
adopted these methods and have
proven their value by carrying
them out. No up-to-date dairyman can afford to miss this opportunity of finding out which
cows in his herd arc profitable
and which ones he is keeping at
a loss. It is an important step
in the dairying industry and
should certainly be encouraged.
Eden Bank Association
A meeting of farmers was
held at the Eden Bank Creamery
on Friday, April 12th, at 8
o'clock p.m., for the purpose of
hearing F. M. Logan, B.S.A.,
Provincial Dairy Inspector, address them on Testing of Cows.
J. Amould, chairman; H. Webb,
Mr. Logan being called upon
said he would rather give a talk
than an address, and would be
very glad to answer any questions during the talk. The
speaker was not long in convincing those present that cow testing was very necessary at the
present time, now that labor is
so high and scarce. The farmer
should be milking those cows
that would give him a good
profit for his labor. Cow testing has been going on for some
time in Eastern Canada with
very profitable results.
Farmers, by testing, have
found out their poor cows and
disposed of them (he hoped to
the butcher) and in a few years
have increased their output of
butter for the year nearly double
to the cow. A few years ago a
herd of cows that averaged 200
pounds of butter to the cow for
the year was extra good; now
the same farmers have herds
averaging 350 to 400 pounds to
the cow for the year.
Mr. Logan explained how the
testing was conducted, the farmer to take a sample of milk
from each cow night and morning, weighs the same, and puts
each sample of milk in separate
bottles, numbering each bottle
to correspond with the number
or name of the cow. This is to
three times per month,

of such an association. The

Of the many important measures which have engaged the attention of the Provincial Legislature during the present session
none can rival in importance the
"University Endownment Act,"
of which we publish the full text
elsewhere in these columns.
When one pauses to consider
what a large part higher institutions of learning have played in
the up-building of every civilized
country of the world, it is difficult to understand why men of
intelligence and supposed breadth
of vision should be found opposing such a step as the government of British Columbia has
just takenjin the interests of advanced education. Sometimes it
would almost seem that certain
men in our Legislature esteem it
the function of an opposition to
indulge iu captious criticism of
every measure proposed by the
government, however wise its
provisions, rather than to aid in
promoting wholesome legislation
for the country's good. Wecan-
not think that those who have
had the most to say on the floor
of the House in opposition to the
present bill are really opposed to
the establishment of aUuiversity
for British Columbia. If they
are moved by considerations
other than party prejudice, it
must surely be that they object
to the generous terms of the bill
rather than to it essential purpose. In so far as we are able to
understand him, this seems to be
the position of the Leader of the
As there seems to be practical
unanimity upon the desirability
of the establishment of some sort
of a University in the Province,
this point need not be discussed.
The present bill proposes to set
aside 2,000,<)()() of acres of the
crown lands of British Columbia
"in aid of higher education
in the province." Mr. Macdonald
would curtail the grant to half
this amount on the ground that
1,000,000 acres will prove quite
adequate to tho purpose. The
view which we take of this contention will be determined entirely by our ideal. British Columbia, by virtue of her great extent
of territory, her vast natural resources and her geographical
position as the Empire's western
gateway to the Orient, is destined
speedily to become the premier
province of the Dominion. Nothing, therefore, short of the best
university that money and talent
can produce will meet the demands of the future. At the
present statutory prices of crown
lands the proposed reservation
will yield a maximum endowment fund of anywhere from
$5,000,000 toll 0,000,000, which
will only be available as the
lands are disposed of. This may
seem a princely sum to the average layman, but the modern
university with its departments
of arts, medicine, law, and applied science, is an expensive institution. If men of first rank-
are to be secured, we shall have
to pay salaries equal to those
offered by the wealthiest universities of the continent, such as
Harvard, Yale, McGill, Cornell,
Johns Hopkins, Leland Stanford and a score of others, whose
endownments run into the millions. Now that land is plentiful
we can well afford to make the
provision, and we think that the
government is to be commended
for the wisdom and foresight of
its action, whereby the foundations are being laid for an institution of the highest rank.
If Mr.Stead's utterance results
iu mitigating the evil of the yellow journal, lie will have contributed, not. only to the world's
pace, but to the cause of morality and decency as well.
William T. Stead, editor of the
London Review of Reviews, is one
of the most ardent and energetic
advocates of international peace.
Speaking last week at the re-dedication of the great Carnegie Institute in Pittsburgh, Penn., he
declared that he had visited ten
different countries and had interviewed kings, princes, prime ministers, foreign ministers, ambassadors and public men, and had
invariably found them in favour
of peace. He had further found
them all agreed "that the greatest, if not the only, clanger to the
peace of the world, lay in the existence of violent, unscrupulous
and irresponsible newspapers."
Mr. Stead quoted the Imperial
Chancellor of Germany, Prince
Von Buelow, us sa_> ing to him:
"The emperor is for peace, the
king is for peace, all the governments are for peace, the parliaments are for peace, and the
great industrial and commercial
classes are for peace. Only the
journalists are for war. And diplomats have to spend all their
time in running about here and
there trying to put out the fires
which the newspapers kindle.'
"Eighteen years ago," Mr.
Stead continued, "the German
ambassador in Russia told me
that the peace of the world could
be secured by the hanging of
twelve editors. At Washington
the other day an eminent American said the'newspapers here, as
in the Old World, rendered the
task of the government iu maintaining' peace very difficult, and
suggested as the only remedy the
electrocution chair.''
Mr. Stead said he did not hesitate todeclare that in the discussion of international affairs "the
liberty of the press has in many
scandalous instances degenerated into a license which is at this
moment the gravest danger
which threatens the peace of the
Continuing, he said: "Standing here, as it were, upon the
housetop of the world, and knowing that my voice will be heard
throughout all the continents, I
proclaim the truth which all responsible men recognize, but
which none dare to declare that
the irresponsible license of the
press must be checked, not only
in the interest of international
peace, but in the interest of the
press itself."
Among the welcome visitors to
our sanctum this week were
Reeve J. L. Atkinson and Councillor Wendell Bowman of Upper
Sumas, Commissioners of the
Sumas Dyking District, These
gentlemen have recently returned
from Victoria, where;in company
with the other commissioners,
they presented the claims of their
district upon the administration
for aid in the large and important undertaking on which they
are embarked. Naturally they
are somewhat disappointed that
the government did not see their
way clear to accede to their request, but are confident of the
merits of their enterprise and the
justice of their district's claim to
aid, and are hopeful of receiving
substantial recognition a little
later. Meanwhile, it is the intention of the Commissioners
to lose no time iu carrying out their programme.
The Court of Revision will be
held ou May 27th, after
which it is expected that the Company will proceed with their part
of the undertaking with all possible dispatch. Our readers will
be glad to know that the failure
to secure immediate government
aid will not delay the construction of the dyke. Next to the
Chilliwack-Westminster tramline
the dyking of Sumas is of the
highest importance to Chilliwack,
and everybody will hail with delight the consummation of
this oft-attempted and long-
talked-of enterprise.

In keeping with the forward

The open meeting of the R. T.
of T��� on the evening of the 5th
inst., was well attended by an
audience which fully represented the moral strength of the
community. Prin. R. H. Cairns,
the Society's special delegate to
the Dominion Alliance Provincial Convention, in presenting
his report, made on excellent
address. The question of secu-
ing the emhodiment of a local
option measure in the provincial
statutes, was fully discussed at
the convention. It was decided
by an overwhelming majority of
the delegates present to ask the
government to allow a majority
vote to pass the measure and
not a 60 per cent, vote, as is required in some parts of the Dominion.. A bill was drafted
after two days' zealous and
earnest debate and is being
submitted to the best legal
talent in the province for
final touches. It will then be presented to the local Legislature
for approval and a ultimate embodiment in the provincial
The speaker maintained that
the principle of Local option was
one of the mildest measures of
Temperance ever asked for. It
was merely asking the Government to allow people to vote on
a by-law and permit municipalities to settle the matter of granting licenses themselves. The
present liquor law is loose in
many particulars, but a local
option measure would be up-to-
date and workable in every
feature. Mr. Cairns concluded
a very able address by saying
that when the principle of local
option had been conceded, he
hoped that Chilliwack would
take the lead in carrying the
first local option measure in the

Things are going a-head by
leaps and bounds at Abbotsford
this Spring. The Great Northern
people are pushing their con?
struction work with all possible
dispatch. They have over 2000
men employed between here
and Cloverdale, of whom a large
number is Chinese. Over 150
Chinamen are at work for them
here. A large steam shovel has
just arrived to be used in grading
the right of way as soon as it is
cleared. At the present rate of
progress it will not be many
months before the road will be
ready for laying rails.
The Abbotsford Lumber Company, who must vacate their
present mill-site to make way for
the railway people by July 1st,
are pushing ahead with their
spur line to the lake. They will
soon have the grading done after
which it will not be long before
the line will be in operation.
In addition to these enterprises
Messrs. Hill-Tout & Sons are
rushing their Tie Mill up at the
lake to completion, and good
progress is being made in the
erection of the Millband Mill just
above the town on the Yale Road.
Besides the stir created by
these building operations much
of the business of the Maple
Grove Lumber Co., and the Vancouver Fireclay Co, at Clayburn
passes through Abbotsford. Altogether the town is enjoying an
unprecedented period of prosperity, which bids fair to be but
the beginning of a new era in its
business history. At the present
time the pay rolls tributary to
the place are very considerable,
that of the Abbotsford Lumber
Co. being $10,000 per month,
the Hill-Tout Mill $3,000 and
Claybourn $15,000. Our enterprising merchants are doing a
good business and the future
never was brighter. Real Estate values are rapidly advancing
and many new houses will be
built this summer.

The evening sitting was devoted to the University Bill.
Amendments introduced by
the Liberals and Socialists while
in committee, were again
brought forward, but were voted
down one by one. Mr. Mac-
gowan had an amendment to incorporate in the university a
faculty of commerce, but this
was also defeated. Mr. Mac-
gowan supported several opposition amendments to the bill.
Mr. Henderson asked to have
the bill ruled out on a point of

when first brought in and must

While attempting to make a
landing last Friday morning, the
Beaver accidentally ran into the
Stave River bridge doing quite a
lot of damage both to herself and
the bridge. The captain ran
across the bridge with a red flag
in his hand to stop a freight that
was coming a short distance off,
but as the engineer was on the
opposite side of the train he did
not see the flag and went tearing
across the bridge. As luck
would have it, however, the train
got over without an accident.

Life is a mystery,-the greatest mind
Cannot explain existence full and clear.
Youth's fond ambition we with age resign,
And circumstances mould our strange
Life, like the varying spring, with
shade and shine
Is chequered o'er from Infancy to age;
In reason's path our upward steps incline
To reach whore wrong no more our
lives engage.
Life hath its pleasures, and its pains ai
And ignorance the cause of all our woo;
Ignoring nature gives to Earth its Hell,
Her laws obeyed make life harmonious
Hath life a purpose?   Do we live for
naught ?
I asked this question o'er and o'er again,
And soft the answer came wher'er I
"Its purpose Love, there is no higher
I longed to rise  above  this  earthly
I longed lo lenrn the destiny of man,
I longed to make his life more happy
And lift his mind to plains sublime and
And then for me the curtain was rolled
I saw mankind like players come and go,
Mistaken,   blund'ring on in darkness
And purity seemed but an empty show.
I watched the farce of commerce in its
As each the other jostled after gain,
And murmured as I sadly turned away,
"The  love of money  makes the world
Our great ideals to which we're upward
Our hamp'ring social laws would rise
But stubborn creeds hold back the coming dawn
Of nature's law of brotherhood and love.
Par through the morning of the future
Man  from his creeds and dogmatism
When reason's sun through lifting mist
God as revealed in nature's laws will
Gladly I live in this progressive morn;
Enjoy the freedom of the dawning day,
Of thoughts free play, where liberty is
And help mankind upon its upward way.

" Mrs. A. P. Ferguson, a well known

"Catarrhozone." Her statement is
convincing: "Although I was troubled
for years it is only recently I tried
Catarrhozone. When an attack started
I got out my inhaler and invariably got
quick relief. Feeling satisfied Catarh-
ozone would cure, I continued the
treatment till one bottle was finished.

proved by David Johnston, of Ormond,
Ont: "My wife was a dreadful suf-
ferrer" he writes. "For two years she
could scarcely do any work. Her
knuckles and joints swelled, causing
torture. To get up or down stairs was
impossible. She took box after box of
Ferrozone and rubbed the sore places
with Nerviline. Improvement started
and she mended fast. To-day she is
quite cured and we thank Ferrozone
for her recovery.'' No remedy more

it does cure.   50c per box at all dealers.
At a meeting of representative
business men of Chilliwack, held
last Friday in the Royal Bank
Chambers, it was decided to form
a club under the name of the
Chilliwack Club, and judging
from the tone of the meeting and
opinions expressed, as well as by
the growing list of names being
obtained by the committee appointed to enlist members, the
future of the club is bright. The
names of gentlemen present at
the meeting on Friday last and of
those added to the list since are
a sufficient guarantee of the lines
upon which the club will be conducted.

ing means of spending leisure |s
hours, can with a preservation of i ���
self-respect, employ spare time :
in social intercourse, reading and j \
such like occupations, and in the
second place provide and offer an
opportunity for young men who
are unattached residents of the
town to form social friendships
and take advantage of the opportunities for wholesome reading
and respectable recreation, with
the consequent withdrawal from
associations that tend to demoralize the youth of any community
where no legitimate means of
recreation are provided.
It is not necessary to point out
the advantages of such an insti-1
tution to those who have had ex- i
perience of clubs run on proper I
lines. Suffice it to say that busi- ]
ness men have a place in which |
they can extend common courtesy
to friends or clients without hav-!
ing to disrupt domestic arrange- j
ments in their homes.
It is hoped by the organizers
of the club in question that those
who are opposed to the present j
state of indifference concerning i
the welfare of the young men of i
the district will give their hearty
sympathy and support to a movement which should terminate in
the organization of a social club,
which will not only offset bad influences in certain directions, but
which will be a credit to the community and indirectly advertise
the stability and respectability of
the town.

The funeral of the late Archie
Marsh took place last Sunday from the
ranch of A. C. Wells & Son, Sardis, to
the Oddfellows' Cemetery. The deceased, who was a native of Dakota,
,;ame to Chilliwack about six weeks ago
from Alberta, in company with his
brother Albert. The two brothers had
only been here about a week in the
employ of A. C. Wells & Son when they
were stricken with measles. From this
disease they both recovered in due
course, but Archie, who was not very
robust, contracted a cold about a week
later,and developed pleurisy and bronchitis. Not having sufficient vitality
to rally from this renewed attack he
passed away on Friday last at the age
of twenty. He leaves no relatives in
this country except his brother.
There seems to be a strong probability that the Chilliwack Water Works
system will change hands in the near
future. A party of gentlemen from
New Westminster, consisting of F. J.
Hart, the well known real estate man,
Dr. A. J. Holmes, dentist, J. J. Jones,
capitalist, and William Stott, engineer
of the New Westminster Waterworks,
spent Thursday looking over the valley
and inspecting the plant of the Elk
Greek Water Works Co. The visitors
were delighted with the country, and
as they are of the kind that know a
good thing when they see it, we venture to predict that a deal will be effected at an early date. Everything will
likely turn, however, on the report of
Engineer Stott. In conversation with
Mr. Jones, he expressed himself as
greatly surprised at the richness and
beauty of Chilliwack. Although a resident of Westminster for 16 years, hs
had never visited the Garden of British
Columbia   before.     Speaking  of our
superb weather, he remarked that he
could scarcely believe that it ever
rained here, and added with a twinkle
in his eye, "I can at least say that I
never saw anything but delightful
weather in Chilliwack."
Sam Dan, whose injury at Vedder
Crossing was reported to Advance readers a couple of weeks ago, is making
slow progress toward recovery. He is
now able to be up and can get about on
crutches, but fears are entertained lest
he may never recover from the effects of
the injury to his back. There is a strong
feeling that the Provincial Government,
in whose employ he was hurt, should
grant him some substantial aid in his
affliction. He has a helpless wife and
family to provide for, and has had to be
assisted already by Sardis neighbors.
The Ladies' Aid of Carman Church have
been especially kind in lending a helping hand, but it is manifestly unfair to
expect that this should be continued for
any great length of time. An application to the Department of Public Works
is likely to be made in the near future
in his behalf.
Municipal Clerk Pelly has placed on
our table a copy or the voters lists of
New Westminster City and District,
which seems to belong to the early
seventies, although the last leaf containing the date is missing. That it is not
less than thirty years old may be judged
by the fact that New Westminster
City only shows 192 voters, while the
entire District, exclusive of Burrard
Inlet Polling Division, (now Vancouver
City) totals just 439. The names of a
large number of Chilliwack's well-
known old-timers, since deceased, also
forms a basis for fixing its date.
Among others are John A. Blanchard,
Geo. Banford, Jas. W. Cotton, Theo-
philus Dumville, John Forsyth, Donald
Gillanders, Thos. E. Kitchen, William
McDonald, D. W. McMilliam, Jonathan

The hot supper given by the Ladies'
Aid of the Methodist Church in Rowat s
new building last Tnesday evening, reflected great credit upon those who
prepared and served the many good
things which they offered to their
hungry friends. The room was tastefully decorated, and everybody fortunate enough to have been in attendance is loud in their praises of the
manner in which they were filled up
with Chilliwack's best food stuffs-
Although the patronage was not as
good as it should have been, yet it was
fair, and the. ladies netted about $25
for their trouble.
