London, June 15.-Hon. Richard McBride's negotiations with
the British Ministers had a sequel
in the Imperial Parliament on
Thursday, when Winston Churchill, as spokesman for the Colonial office, introduced an amendment to the British North
America Act, readjusting the
subsidies to the provinces.
Mr. Churchill spoke at some
length. After reviewing the
stages leading up to the measure
he dwelt upon British Columbia's position, and stated that
while the Imperial government
was bound to give weight to the
representations of the Dominion
Government, backed as they
were by all the provinces except
British Columbia, yet they did
not want it understood that these
alone were to be regarded in a
matter in which the right of a
single province was affected.
Action of British Columbia.
He referred to the action of
the British Columbia Legislature
in protesting against the proposed settlement being "final and
unalterable," and in this connection spoke as follows :
"The Prime Minister of
Quebec, also Sir Wilfrid Lau-
rier and Hon. Mr. Fielding, have
made personal application to the
Colonial Secretary or myself on
this question. On the other
hand, Hon. Mr. McBride, Prime
Minister of British Columbia,
has also stated his case very
fully to us. He has, with great
fraakness ana much force, place i
us in possession of the views and
grievances of British Columbia.
While we are unable to accept
his opinions entirely, we have
endeavoured as far as possible
to make the legislation agreeable
to him, and we have not introduced into the legislation the
words 'final and unalterable,'
which it had been proposed to
introduce, and which would have
prejudiced British Columbia's
chance of making some other
friendly arrangement in the
future with the Dominion and
with the other provinces."
Special Grant.
The bill contains a clause providing that nothing in the act
shall affect the obligation of the
Dominion to pay any province a
special grant in addition to the
Hon Richard McBride remains
here until after the second reading, which is expected in about a
Star's Report.
Nontreal, June 15.���A special
London cable to the Star says
"Winston Churchill, as Undersecretary for the Colonies,
brought up in the House of
Commons yesterday afternoon
the Bill amending the British
North America Act respecting
federal subsidies to the provinces.
" It was given its first reading
without opposition. The bill
gives legislative sanction to the
compact made last October in
Ottawa, between the federal,
government and all the provincial ministers except British Columbia, under which the prov-j
inces are to receive increased,
���per capita subsidies.
Sum Inadequate.
" Hon. Richard McBride.
Premier ot British Columbia,
who is still here, has made vigorous representations to the
Colonial office against what he
deems the inadequate sum given
to British Columbia. The Colonial office takes the view that
the question is one which British
Columbia must herself settle
with the Dominion, but the Imperial Bill introduced to-day
makes an important concession
to British Columbia in eliminating from the Dominion Government's proposed amendment the
fateful words "final and unalterable." British Columbia's demand is thus left open, and Mr.
McBride is satisfied that the
feeling of his province is so
strongly with him that the Dominion Government will be led to
accept the proposal for arbitration by a court to which
Canada, British Columbia and
Britain will each appoint a member."     	
Two Proposals.���People ot   Rosedale Decide to Support Gasoline Launch.
Commissioners and Enqlneer  Hill
Discuss Project with Property
Owners at Lower sumas
A meeting was held qn Tuesday evening in the Orange Hall,
Rosedale, to discuss the proposed plans for a ferry connection between this place and
Agassiz. Two propositions were
placed before the meeting. One
was a proposal to form a joint
stock company and to put on the
river either a $2000 or a
$5000 steamer. The other offer
was made by Gill & Ryder, who
have ordered a gasoline launch
of 7 h.p., with an accommodation for fifteen passengers, to be
completed by July 1. The first
proposal was turned down as
being too far in advance of the
present trade requirements, and
the meeting then unanimously
voted to support the promoters
of the gasoline boat on condition
that it met the requirements of
the trade.
The outlook fpr salmon has
brightened considerably during
the past week. Large catches
are reported during the past
few days and it is expected that
duringthe next two weeks sufficient fish will be caught to keep
the dealers supplied with all they
can handle profitably.
Man cannot thrive apart from
the land.
A spirited meeting to discuss
dyking matters was held at the
Achelita School House last Friday evening. It was called by
the Commissioners and was one
of the most largely attended
meetings yet held.
E. J. Campbell acted as chairman and performed his duties
impartially. L. Broe was appointed secretary of the meeting.
The chairman remarked that
he wished the matter re Sumas
Dyking should be discussed amicably between the Commissioners and the ratepayers present.
J, L. Atkinson then explained
that the meeting had been called
to meet the objections that had
been raised against the Sumas
Dyking Scheme through the
press and otherwise.
By request D. McGillivray,
Commissioner, then took the
floor to answer the objections.
He first referred to an article
in The Fraser Advance of June
1, 1907, which states that, according to Sec. 17 of the Dyking
Act of 1897, crown lands are not
assessable, and therefore the
present assessment roll, which
assesses those lands, does not
represent a true statement of
the facts.
Mr. McGillivray said re this
that the Company is not acting
under the General Dyking Act
of 1897, and that the crown
lands will Qe assessable.
S. B. Hill, Engineer, who
came after meeting had been in
session some time, took the floor
with Mr. McGillivray. Mr. Hill
read the complete operations of
the Sumas Development Company to the present time. He
then referred to the crown
lands question, saying that it
was not a settled matter, but
that the Company is willing to
take their share of the assessment on the above mentioned
crown lands as soon as the proposition is ready to proceed.
Re the matter of each parcel
of land being responsible for the
cost of the whole construction,
Mr. McGillivray said that the
Sumas works is not in the hands
of the Provincial Government,
but is managed by the Inspector
of Dykes, and that such a responsibility would not materially
affect the landowners anyway.
Here a discussion between Mr.
Rose and Mr. Hill brought out
the fact that the assessment held
not only the land responsible
within the dyke, but the holders'
propertv outside the dyke, if he
do not oppose the construction
of the work,
Numerous questions were
then put by those present to
which answers were given by
Mr, Hill and Commissioners
Atkinson and McGillivray.
Much   valuable   information
was elicited and although the
discussions, which were infor
m��l throughout, waxed heated
at times, the atmosphere was
decidedly clearer when adjournment was taken at 1 a.m.
Scarcity of Labor.
Many of the contracts of the
United States Government have
been advertised several times
without securing reasonable bids.
The government is confronted
with the proposition of doing the
work by force account or of postponing it until there is an improvement in conditions. The
present time is most unpropiti-
ous for the government to undertake doing the work itself.
There is an unusual scarcity of
labor. Wages are from forty to
sixty per cent higher than two
years ago, while efficiency has
been decreased rather than improved by the unlimited demand
for laborers. Owing to the remoteness of much of the government work from cities and
towns, labor is not attracted
thereto, and as a rule the government gets only the leavings
or the most undesirable class of
laborers. The steady and skilful
workers are all busy.���Ex.
Alessaqe From One of Chilliwack'
Admirers By The Sea.
The writer, when visiting the
public hospital of the city this
afternoon saw Mr. W. T. Jack-
man, of Chilliwack. Readers of
the Advance know that Mr.
Jackman has had one leg amputated ju3t below the knee. His
health seems to be robust, and in
spirits he is jubilant and hopeful. .The treatment at the hospital; has been satisfactory in
every particular, from the doctor
who has charge of tha case to
the nurses and other attendants.
Still Mr. Jackman thinks that
Chilliwack is the best spot in
all the world, and hopos soon to
have the pleasure of meeting
his many friends in the Valley,
where nature deals out the beautiful so lavishly. We all feel a
sense of sadness when we see
our friends in a hospital. A
hospital is a kind of benevolent
crutch, invented by human
sympathy to alleviate pain and
suffering. When we need the
crutch we thank God for it.
When the ailment is gone that
made us need the hospital we
are thankful and happy for the
release. These were some of
the thoughts that flashed throug' i
the writer's brain as he wended
his way from the city hospital.
There is a large influx of people into the city this summer.
They are coming from nearly
all parts of the world. Some
people land here from the old
country without the remotest
conception of the conditions of

Tho report of the results of
Premier McBride's mission to
London as contained in the press
dispatches, which reached the
people of this Province through
the daily papers of last Saturday
and which we reproduce elsewhere in our present issue, must
have been highly gratifying' to
every loyal citizen of British
Columbia. It is pleasing to notice that the press of the Province with scarcely an exception
refer to the Premier's achiev-
ment in complimentary terms.
Even those papers which less
than three months ago saw so
much humor in the very suggestion of Mr.McBride's carrying
British Columbia's case to "the
foot of the throne," and confidently predicted that he would
not even get a hearing, seem
now to have awakened to the
importance of his victory and are
found in line with the prevailing
public sentiment. We have no
disposition to be unkind or unfair, but there is something
truly ludicrous in the efforts
which some of the Liberal organs
are making to swing into line
and claim for their party a show
of credit, it will take a little
more than soft talk, however, to
make the people soon forget the
opposition which was offered to
the) Premier's course from the
beginning. It is true that the
opposition voted practically with
the government on the main
issue, but beyond this it can
scarcely be claimed with justice
that the influence of the party
throughout the Province was
with the Premier. Moreover,
it is the acme of absurdity to
say that Sir Wilfrid Laurier and
his companions in office at Ottawa have not been responsible
for the Province's failure to
secure what was sought. Mr.
Churchill's words in the Imperial Parliament set this point
at rest, " The prime minister of
Quebec, also Sir Wilfred Laurier
and Hon. Mr. Fielding, have
made personal application to the
Colonial Secretary and myself
on this question." In the light
of the facts it seems only fair
to regard Mr. McBride's achiev-
ment as at once a personal, a
party and a provincial victory.
There has been an impression
abroad that had the vote of the
land owners of the Sumas Dyking District on Wednesday last
been adverse the whole enterprise would have been blocked.
This is not the case, as we un-
! 11 it, since the engineers
u...i,..,tl plans were duly approved some months ago by vote
of the people. According to
these plans the Chilliwack River
| was to be carried down what
has been called the lower diversion. Later the engineers
advised using the old Luck-a-
Kuck channel for this purpose
and submitted amended plans
accordingly. It was upon these
that Wednesday's vote was taken, and had it been adverse the
validity of the former vote would
not have been affected. As will
be seen, however, by a brief
report in another column the
amended plans were approved by
a small majority in numbers and
an overwhelming majority in interest, thus leaving the Commissioners the option of accepting either the original or the
amended plans.
A Vancouver Breeze
Continued from page 1
this western land. As a consequence there is quite often
severe disappointment and suffering. In conversation with a
family recently from a large
city in England, I was told that
they knew practically nothing
about Canada before landing
here. They were having some
experiences that would tax the
good nature and patience of the
most magnanimous examples of
our race. I presume that such
struggles and trials are the
ordeal by which the hetrogene-
ous elements of this far western
city must learn the bond of sympathy, which is the keystone to
true democracy. In some cases,
the experience thus gained may
cost too much, Too severe an ordeal with some dispositions tends
to obtuse rather than quicken the
finer sensibilities of the mind.
The great body of the people
coming here are learning the art
of assimilation, which enables
j them in a short time to adapt
; themselves with advantage to
the peculiar conditions of the
new land. There is a steady
progress going on in every direction. People, who one year
ago, were pa-sing through a
severe struggle, are today in
prosperous circumstances, and
rejoicing over the time when
they were led to come to Canada
in quest of better opportunities
for themselves and families.
At this time of the year when
summer outings are in the air,
and one hears something every
day about the best place to spend
a few weeks' vacation, the
writer has often thought about
the valley, and streams
and mountains of Chilliwack. What about the electric
railway between Vancouver and
Chilliwack ? What about the
utilization of those splendid
natural resources in the vicinity
of Cu'tus Lake ? When will
those opportunities be made
available for the general public,
who are in need of them during
the season of vacation ? The
people of Chilliwack have an
asset in her lovely spots and
select places for summer visits
that must in time be made inviting to the outside world.
If some of the people who are
dosing themselves with drug
nostrums in the City of Vancouver could be induced to go up
Cheam mountain side and sleep
in the open air for a month, live
on vegetables, fruit and water,
w��lk and laugh all day, and
learn that God is the author of
all vitality, they would come
back here with an energy for
life's duties that they have never
dreamed of.
You ��ho live In the valley
should be thankful for your
grand heritage, but please don't
forget to let the outside world
know what you really have.
There is a generosity which
carries with it ail advantage
both to the donor and receiver.
Be generous to make known to
the outside world more thoroughly, the attractions, health-
fulness and wealth of your beautiful valley. CITIZEN.

[We do not hold ourselves responsible
for either statements made or sentiments expressed by our correspondents
published in this column.]
In your issue of June 15th, I
notice a communication over the
signatures of D. McGillvray and
J. D. Atkinson in which they
have tried to answer our letter
of June 1st. Now what have
they done ? In first question they
have mutilated our letter by
cutting out the figures 1897,
and only using the words " Dyking Act." We consider this is
done so that they can better deceive the readers. No doubt we
ought to have expressed it thus :
'' The Drainage, Dyking, and
Irrigation Act, 1897, Chap. 64,
, Clause 17," instead of Dyking
* Act, 1897, Clause. Nevertheless
they do not injure the clause as
the force and effect remains j"st
the same, viz.,���there cannot be
any legal taxation registered
against Dominion Land. But I
would here further add, assessing those lands is one point, but
collecting the tax is another. To
verify my statement I will here
insert a paragraph, copied from
a letter of recent date, from Department of Interior at Ottawa,
fully signed, which reads thus :
" Therefore I must further
state that lands the property of
the King in the Dominion of
Canada cannot legally be taxed."
Now from agreement between
Department of Interior, and one,
J. H. Lewis, of Chicago, and his
associates, I abstract the following :
" That when they shall dyke
Sumas Dyking District and reclaim Lake Sumas, either through
a company or commissioners,
and pump dry the bed and bottom of Lake Sumas, so that no
person or persons who own land
in the dyking district, whether
in the bed and bottom of Lake
Sumas or otherwise, shall be
inconvenienced or injured from
the re-flooding of the Lake at
at any time from any cause
whatever." Then after that has
been done to the satisfaction of
the authorities at Ottawa and
also here they are to receive
letters patent for those Lands.
So it will readily be understood
that James A. Lewis and his as-

sociates at Chicago have no hold
on those lands other than those
set forth in the agreement.
But we here consider that if
this work is accomplished
through Commissioners, which
means the people���that if the
Lake should ever re-flootl from
any cause whatever, that the
^V Landowners in the dyking clis-
rJN trict will be liable for any dam*
j��j ' ages sustained by those who own
/ij I land in the bed of the lake.
Vg/j As to the second question, the
teQ amendment referred to is an
S^�� amendment of 1898 Dyking Act,
^jgj which distinctly states that each
w/ parcel of land assessed is held
Vvf I separately liable for the whole
fcQ I amount. I would say this amend-
Ny�� j ment is law and ready for use
y^J I at any time, if required, and will
i^ | remain so until cancelled by the
Qy j proper authorities.
ffi)i Re assessments becoming as
\ 11 private debt : At a meeting in
l^! Atchlitz Schoolhouse on the
i evening of June 14, Wm. A.
; Rose put the question to S. B.
Hill, thus : Do those assess*
ments become private debts or
j not ? S. B. Hill tried to mislead
>*��7' the people by reading other
)^j clauses in the Dyking Act for
nearly half an hour, when Wm.
A.   Rose,  put the question re-
!ferred to again. With a call
from the chair of question, and
more forcibly from the audience
of "Answer," S. B. Hill dis-
m*?i tinctly stated that to such as
' sign for works to go on and for
Commissioners, they do become
as private debts. Now all know
full well that private debts can
!j be    collected    anywhere.    No
vv matter where your property is
V possessed they can follow you
and collect them lawfully.
Last paragraph re False Prophets :
To this I would say : In June
1905 false prophets did arise
among the people and some of
I them being aged were well
versed in the acts of trickery
and falsehood and whose ways
were much like the ways of
]\A Beelzebub and his legion, who by
x false illustrations and mis-representations did deceive many.
From this class turn ye away,
for by their heavy assessments
5A, and insufferable maintenance of
W dykes and pumping, your homes
x will become their homes, or the
property of a Company, and you
will have to get out.
Thanking you for space.
Yours respectfully,

("Do Babies Pay? " is the subject
that is being discussed by some of the
editorial writers of the day.)
Each night when I go home from work
Tired with toil of day,
A little tot is waiting me
To drive the cares away.
"Here tomes papa ! " aloud she cries���
Her chubby hands raised high���
"O doody, doody, papa's home 1 "
I hear aa I draw nigh
And then she toddles down the walk
And meets me at the gate,
And I forget I'm tired out
When she begins to prate :
"O papa, I'm so glad you tome���
I fink you're awful nice-
Say, papa, how much did I tost,
And am I worf the de price? "
She tells me what "a splendid time"
She's had "wif dolls and toys"
A perfect little chatterbox,
Chock full of life and joys.
And every evening she and I,
When supper time is o'er,
Can hardly wait until we've had
A romp upon the floor.
And when her mamma interrupts
With baby's little gown,
She cries, "Oh mamma lookey here !
I've dot my papa down I "
Then as we tuck her in her bed,
She says, "Tome tiss me twice���
And papa, how much did I tost,
And am I worf de price? "
The glory and satisfaction of beautiful womanhood can be known only to
those possessing the unlimited advantages of health. No weak woman
can be happy or enjoy half the pleasures
of life. Pallid cheeks, sunken eyes, exhausted nerves, all tell of a terrible
struggle to keep up. What the weak
woman needs is Ferrozone ; it renews,
restores and vitalizes instantly���it's a
woman's remedy,"���that's why.
Ferrozone makes women strong,
plump and healthful because it contains
lots of nutriment, the kind that forms
musle, sinew, bone and nerve. Vitalizing blood courses through the body,
making delightful color, happy spirits,
true womanly strength. Fifty cents
