view is that the Attorney-General, by virtue of his office, has no
option but to give cmsent to
prosecutions under the Dominion
law, unless such prosecutions
shall be shown to be petty or
malicious; and, further, the intent of the law is not that the
Attorney-General shall, if he desires, over-ride the law,, but that
he shall secure its just administration. He is but an officer designated by the Act, to secure its
fair enforcement. Otherwise he
annuls a law which, the competent Legislature passing that law,
says is in force. The jurisdiction

the amount of weed seeds or other impurities contained in a sample, and the names and quantities

from noxious weed seeds.
The germination test shows

unfavorable weather, immaturity,
freezing before harvesting, lack
of proper storage or old age. Appearances are deceiving and often

Secretary Rochester Speaks.
Referring to the announcement
recently made, that the provincial government contemplates introducing Lord's Day legislation,
and that in the meantime no assent would be given by the Attorney-General to any prosecution under the Dominion Lord's
Day Act, Rev. Mr. Rochester,
Western Secretary of the Lord's
Day Alliance, makes the following statement:
"So far as the Alliance is concerned it regards it as a matter
of no consequence from what
source legislation comes, whether
from the Provincial or the Dominion Government. It may be
that the legislation contemplated
by the local Government would
be more acceptable to the Alliance than the Dominion Act.
The important requisite, however, is that legislation comes
from a competent source.
Act Now in Force.
"In the public's view of the
present situation one fact may
easily be over-looked, namely,
that the Dominion Lord's Day
Act is now in force, and it is assumed to be known to be in force.
Everyone, therefore, violating
its provisions by an open Lord's
Day, is violating the law of the
land. The words of the act are
specific in this particular, "that
this law shall come into force on
March 1, 1907." The action of
the provincial Government in no
way alters that fact.
"The attitude of the Attorney-
General is an important consideration. Whether rightly or
wrongly, the Dominion, in this
legislation, has placed responsibility upon his shoulders. As to
the nature of this obligation there
is a difference of opinion.   Our
"It is well to notice that British Columbia alone in the west,
has taken this position, with respect tp the Dominion Act.
Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta have signified through
their respective Attorney-Generals, their desire to secure the
enforcement of the Lord's Day
"In its application to this province it may be fittingly urged
that this Sunday legislation can
give little ground for complaint.
The Act, whilst able to secure
national wellbeing, is broad in its
consideration of individual liberty
and is generous in its provision
with respect to the commercial
interests of this province. This
has been clearly brought out in
the recent interview with the
Attorney-General, published in
the daily papers.
"The whole question of jurisdiction of the province is at once
raised by the government's announcement. Has the province
power in this particular? It is
asserted that the Dominion
Lord's Day Act purports to give
liberty to the province to legislate in its own interests in respect of the Lord's Day. It is to
be remembered, however, that
its saying so does not necessarily
convey to the province such
power. The prOvi nces have their
constitutions under the British
North America Act, and if they
have such power in Lord's Day
legislation, they have it independent of the Dominion Parliament; and if they have it not,
the Dominion cannot bestow
these powers.
provincial law ultra vires.
"So far as this question has
come under review, the provinces
have no encouragement to move
in the direction of Lord's Day
legislation. The judicial committee of the Privy Council of
ques.ion of power to pass Lord's
Day legislation has not been
settled, and that there is still
ground for believing that the
province has power to enact a
Sunday law, a course is open to
the government which would
commend itself as fair and one
that would save much trouble
later. According to the ' 'act regarding the constitution, practice and procedure of the Supreme Court of British Columbia," it is competent for "the
Lieutenant-Governor in Council
to refer to the Full Court or a
judge for hearing and consideration any matter which he thinks
fit to refer, and the Full Court
or judge shall thereupon hear
p.nd consider the same." The
act then specifies particularly
matters which "relate to the
constitutional validity of any act
which has heretofore been or
shall hereafter be passed by the
Legislature of this Province, or
of some prov> sion in any such
act." Therefore, in the present
circumstances, it would seem a
reasonable method to pursue
that the local government should
prepare a draft bill of its proposed legislation and submit it,
according to the terms of the
act quoted to the Supreme
Court of the Province for consideration and judgment.
' 'Meanwhile, awaiting whatever action in the judgment of.
the Provincial Government may
be deemed Jbest, every citizen
ought to remember that t,i,o
Dominion Lord's Day Act is no v
law, and, because it is the lav
of the land, it should meet with
respect from every honorable
citizen. If its provisions are unreasonable in any particular, redress may be sought not in disregard of the law, but in amendment thereof, when opportunity
offers." 2

A New Theology.
The Rev. R. J. Campbell, of
the City Temple, London, has
enunciated a ''new theology" in
which he not only disposes of
the belief that the Bible was divinely inspired, but states emphatically a disbelief in eternal
punishment, and says that ultimately every soul will be perfected. By his new doctrine, or
"re-stated theology," as, he
terms it, Mr. Campbell has
thrown a bomb into the camp Qf
the Christian churches throughout the civilized world. For Air.
Campbell has been recognized as
one of the most potent exponents
of present day Christianity.
From advices which have come
from England it would seem the
churches are on the eve of a new
period of controversy and one
that may rival the Colenso and
the Farrar ferments in the English church, or the Robertson-
Smith and Marcus Dodds trials in
Scotland. Within the next few
months Mr. Campbell is going
out as the apostle of the "new
theology,'' addressing gatherings
of ministers in the leading provincial towns, by invitation of
the ministers themselves. It is
fully expected that grave developments will follow, for the
movement is by no means confined to Nonconformity but is
agitating sections of the Christian
church throughout the world.
What is this new theology and
how does its leading exponent
define it ? The following is an
epitome of the utterances of the
famous preacher who with the
face of a boy, the silvery hair of
an old man, and the burning,
piercing eyes of a prophet, delivers all his sermons with the
quiet emphasis of one who has
thought out his. intellectual position.
The "new theology" denotes
an attitude and a spirit rather
than a creed. Its starting point
is belief in the immanence of
God and the essential oneness of
God and man. Man is the reflection of God and the universe,
one means to the self-manifestation of God. The word God
stands for the infinite reality
whence all things proceed. In
common with the whole scientific world it believes that the
finite universe is one aspect or
expression of that reality, but it
thinks of it (or Him) as Consciousness rather than a blind
force, thereby differing from
some scientists.
It thus believes that there is
no real distinction between humanity and deity. Man's being
is the same as God's, though his
consciousness of it is limited. In
all surrounding objects there is a
revelation of God.
The "new theology" holds
that human nature should be interpreted in terms of its own
highest attainment, and therefore it reverences Jesus Christ.
It looks upon Jesus as the perfect example of what humanity
ought to be-the life which purposely expresses God to a limited
human experience. So far as
man can see the highest kind of
life than can be lived is the life
that is lived in terms of the whole.
Every man is a potential Christ,
or rather a manifestation of the
eternal Christ; that side of the
nature of God from which all
humanity has come forth. Humanity is fundamentally one,
and all true living is the effort to
realize that oneness. This is the
truth that underlies all noble effort for the common good in the
world to-day.  <
The "new theology" looks upon evil as a negative rather than
a positive term.' It is the shadow
where the light ought to be; it is
the perceived privation of good.
It belongs only tp finiteness. Pain
is the effort of the spirit to break
through the limitations which it
feels to be evil. The "new
theology" believes that the only
way in which the true nacure of
good can be manifested, either
by God or man, is by the struggle
against limitation, and, therefore, it is not appalled by the long
story of cosmic suffering. The
things which man most admires
and reverences in his fellow man,
are thethings involving struggle
and self-sacrifice.
The new doctrine watches with
sympathy the development of
modern science, for it believes
itself to be in harmony therewith.
It is the religious articulation of
the scientific method. It, therefore follows, that it is in sympathy with scientific criticism of
the important religious literature
known as the Bible. The Bible
it handles as freely and as critically as it would any other book.
It believes that the seat of religious authority is within, and
int without, the soul. The
individual man is so constituted
as to be able to recognize, ray by
ray, the truth that helps him upwards no matter from what
source it comes.
The "new theology" represents in the sphere of religion
the same movement that in the
sphere of. politics and sociology
is making for a better social order. The two movements are
not simply parallel, they are one
and the same.
It believes in the immortality
of the soul, but only on the
ground that every individual
consciousness is a ray of the universal consciousness and cannot
be destroyed. It believes that
there are many stages in the upward progress of the soul in the
unseen world before it becomes
fully and consciously one with
its infinite source. Man makes
his destiny in the next world by
his behavior in this. Ultimately
every soul will be perfected.
The "new theology" brushes
aside many of the familiar dogmas still taught from the pulpit.
It believes that the story of the
fall, in a literal sense, is untrue.
It is literature, not dogma; tne
romance of an early age used tor
the ethical instruction of man.
The very imperfection of the
world to-day is due to God's will.
It is a working out of Himself
with its purpose, a purpose not
wholly hidden from man.
The doctrine of sin which holds
man to be blameworthy for deeds
that he cannot help, is a false
view. Sin is simply selfishness.
It is an offence against the God
within; a violation of the law of
love. It rejects v; holly the common interpretation of the Atonement���that another is beaten for
our fault. It believes in no final
judgment, but in a judgment that
is ever proceeding. Every sin
involves suffering which cannot
be remitted by any work of another. When a deed is done its
consequences are eternal.
It teaches that Jesus was and
is divine, but so are we. His
mission was to make us realize
our divinity and our oneness with
God. And we are called to live
the life which He lived.
The "new theology" is arousing widespread attention
throughout England, shaking as
it does the fundamental principles of the Christian church.
The same theories have one and
all been advanced heretofore but
only in an isolated and disjointed
fashion, and certainly never by
such an eminent divine as Dr.
Campbell. What the outcome of
the preson' controversy will be
remains to bo seen.
Dr. Campbell abandons much
that the devout will be reluctant
to lose. He discards the doctrine
of the Fall of Man. He surrenders with it the Atonement. He
appears to surrender with it also
the freedom of will when he
speaks of the deeds that cannot
be helped.
Humanity is yearnirig'for a definite knowledge of what lies be
yond the veil. For thousands of
years it has sought for an explanation and songht in vain. Plato
knew as much 2,300 years ago of
what becomes of the soul after
death as the greatest scientist
knows to-day. Science as it advances merely describes facts; it
does not attempt to explain them.
The explanation for which humanity is hankering is withheld,
simply because it is not known.
It is indeed questionable if Dr.
Campbell's "new theology" is
even a step in the right direction,
and doubtless in company with
previous controversies of a like
nature, when it has run its course,
it will be relegated to the limbo
of forgotten things. ��� Victoria

No little consternation has
been created in Chilliwack during
the past few weeks by the announcement made by some of
the coast papers, with a considerable show of official authority behind it, to the effect that
the proposed Electric Railway
line from Westminster to Chilliwack may not be extended farther than Abbotsford unless the
Sumas Prairie is dyked. Little attention would have been given to
such an obviously absurd report
but for the fact that the same
thing was strongly liinted in a
letter addressed ��� by General
Manager Sperling to the Chilliwack Board of Trade, as well us
in some remarks made last week
by Local .Manager I). J. Mc-
Quarrie, at a meeting of the
Westminster Board of Trade.
We have neither seen Mr. Sperling's letter nor did we hear Mr.
McQuarrie.s address. If thesa
gentlemen, however, are correctly reported, it is quite evident that the impression conveyed, if not sought to be conveyed, to both Boards of Trade
was quite in accord with the impression which has gone
abroad.       .
It is little wonder that.the people of this district should experience a decided sense of shock at
even a bare hint of a possible
change of the programme of the
B.C. Electric Railway Company.
The fact is still fresh in the minds
of everybody that only a few
months ago the most definite
announcement was made by Mr.
Buntzen, Managing Director of
that Company, that if the Municipalities interested would grant
the desired franchise concessions
the Cohipany would proceed to
build the line. If, as Mr. Mc-
Quarrie is now quoted, "in all
the discussion with the British
Directors, over the proposed
Chilliwack extension it had been
taken for granted that the
scheme (Sumas dyke) was as
good as an accomplished fact,"
the people of the South Fraser
heard nothing about it. After
all franchises haye been signed,
sealed and delivered it surely
is.rather late in the day to spring
Buch argument. If the successful
dyking of Sumas Prairie was to
be one of the conditions of the
serious   consideration   of   the
Ram Lambs at reasonable prices.
We do not know what interest ply Jos. Thompson.
Mr.  Sperling or  his Company'	
may    have    in    boosting   the
Sumas Dyking Scheme, but he
has certainly   done   no
credit either to his Company's
good-faith    or    his own good
judgment by his attitude in this

A Few Words
With our Subscribers.
Dear Friends:���You will have noticed that some radical changes
have taken place in our paper since it came under its present management a month ago. Its scope has been broadened and its name
correspondingly changed. Better paper and better ink are being
used and the price has been reduced from $1.50 to $1.00 per year.
This programme can only be successfully carried out by the hearty
co-operation of our friends. We must nave more subscribers and
in every case the paper must be paid for. On our present mailing
list are hundreds of names of persons to whom the paper has been
sent for years without any return having been made therefor.
This condition of affairs-is, we,believe, due largely to thoughtlessness, but it is none the less serious. The present owner has bought
all these accounts from Mr. Jackman, and must ask that they be
settled during the present month. Until this settlement is made
the old price of $1.50 per year will be charged in each case, so you
will notice that it will be to your interest as well as ours to make
an early settlement For the future the paper will be sent to nobody without advance payment, and when the subscription expires
the paper will be stopped unless renewed. In this way only those
who wish it and pay for it will get it. Only thus can we make the
price $1.00 per year.
As a further inducement for prompt settlement, in all cases over one year in arrears we will on payment of amount due to date,
advance the label to July 1st, 1907, and in all cases of two years
arrears we will in like manner advance the label to January 1st,
1908.   In no case will we stop the paper until all arrears are settled.
Will you not do your part to help make our own paper the best
rural weekly in the West.
Yours very sincerely,
J. Burtt Morgan,
Editor and Proprietor.

The Saving Habit.
The days of the long stocking
hoar/1 and the sub-mattress baflk,
even in the most rural farmhouse
of Canada, are fast departing.
As temporary depositaries they
are excellent institutions. A
branch bank was recently" opened in a small hamlet where it
looked as if there were not $10,-
000 in cash available in the whole
country-side. In less than three
weeks, the deposits reached
The habit of saving counts
more than the amount saved, especially in the beginning. < Those
who continually are planning to
save some day, when it shall be
convenient, seldom save anything at any time. Those; on
the contrary, who make a practice of saving regularly find it
impossible to save under conditions decidedly unpromising.
And the smallest sums, saved
steadily, in due season make totals pi surprising size.
A loving and thrifty father
rendered possible the special
course his young son desired and
needed by 'going halves" on the
cigar question and outlay during
jfche boy's infancy andhigh-schdol
years. Every, time he smoked a
cigar he dropped an equivalent
sum into a small bank kept for
the purpose and periodically emptied in the bigger bank's favor,
with a result as physically helpful as mentally satisfactory
to him. Another impecunious
but affectionate father for years
saved all the loose change found
in his pockets when he drew his
weekly salary to purchase little
refinements and luxuries for his
family. Guitars, violins, concert
and theatre tickets, holiday trips
and many other good things
came out of the "spare change
fund,',' and left. nopody feeling
the poorer. A mother, saving
all the pennies that came to her
household purse, purchased a
fine dictionary, a piano and a
good picture, in a surprisingly
short space of time.
A bright Chicago girl began a
course at College not long since.
There is not much money in her
family, and a friend expressed
surprise that so good and
expensive an educational centre
could be afforded.
"Oh. mama's to blame for it,
bless her!" was the prospective
freshman's pleased explanation,
"She's been saving for my college course since I was a baby.
Father's salary never has been
large, and a cent a day was all
she.could aflord for, some .time,
but even then. that - counted up
slowly, and later other small
sums were added, with all the
money gifts my numerous and
good-natured relatives made me.
By and by, as I grew up, I earned a little by fancy work and so
on, and, taught by my careful
mother, placed this in the bank
also. Now, I'm not likely to become a collegiate Croesus, and I
expect to make all the extra
money I can from the first. But
my legitimate expenses all have
been planned for, and even if I
never make anything while at
college I shall be able to graduate,
with care."
Other parents who believe in
systematic saving, successfully
have adopted other methods of
accumulating a little money for
the benefit of their children. In
some cases a lump sum has been
invested during infancy, for future use, or an endowment insurance policy, maturing at the
right time, rendered an adequate
amount of "college cash" possible, in others the slow but sure
methods easier for salaried people, though no less effective have
been called into service. One
dollar weekly can. be spared by
many families without pinching,
and $62 a year is worth saving.
Even $1 monthly is better than
nothing with the varied needs of
the prospective young man or Slough bridge.
