The normal process of development

trition and'we find th t theiituetoentb

of opinion from centralization in favor
of de centralization. We see thu evidence of this iu the increased desire of
villages and towns to attain the rank

to propose ihu toast, "The Dominion
J Canada," ut iho dinner given ly
Lonl Slrathconu in Loudou. ou July
I, and he di-*eh��ri;"d lhe duty iu a
singularly happy manner. He referred
to Dominion D.ty as "the anniversary
of ihe hi rib nf h initinii om1 of thosi
4reat iihiIuus that unininski* np th
great empire ��� gcuater that the world
has ever seen before- to which we ure
all so proud tu belong,* Afier spiakmg
of ihu anticipations of the founders of
Confederal Eon, he said : "I cannot
help thinking that even the most sail
guine iiieu who surrounded the cradle
of the Federation could not havo dared
anticipate the lusty vigor, the aston*
shin; vigor of the infant they helped
bring Into tho world. We iiuo'.e iu
full his next remarks:
It is not for me, sir, to repeat to you
the history of thu development of your
great country, lu the course of a
period which amounts only to the span
of an average life, you have established all the lu-titutions of a civilized
and orderly Government, you have
created vast industries, employing
great pop:ilat Ions; you have trans
formed u trackless waste into oue ol
the great granaries of the world
(cheers); you have opened up sources
of incalculable mineral wealth; you
have created uew centres uf intellectual
energy; yon have reared a | eople strenuous, id cite I, law-abiding and God*
f-aring ihe real and truest fo illation
of a great nation (loud cheers). The
record of the internal | rocess of Canada is one of almo.it unbroken advance
and wheu we look buck upon it, we do
not wonder upon it. Wc are able to
justify the confidence with which
every Canadian is horn iu the des iu
ies of the uiagiiilici'Ut laud which is
his appointed heritage. Uut if tin
founders of the Canadian federation
were unable completely to realize till
rapidity and completeness with which
iho spirit ofthe people would evolvi
all the Institutions, all ihe qualities,
all the characteristics which go to
perfect, nationhood, still less were they
able to appreciate, 'he lesult which
this development would have upon tin

the utmost liberty was conceded io tin

"Laugh,   little folk! for joy to think
that England's sun basset,
But Fame laughs   louder thau  ye all.
And Freedom louder yet;
Take back your spite-engendered sneer,
your Conscript-nurtured scorn;
Hark ! to the cry that comes from East
out heralding the morn.
Vml   Westward  cf  the  sunset ���from
the race yo so revile,
from continent to continent, it sounds
from hill to hill.
And by the broad  St. Lawrence, from
beneath the Southern Cross,
���We, we are England's 1 Count with us
before you count hor loss."'
The Provincial Ooverninent has decided to undertake theconstruction of u
iew Ooverninent House immediately
and push tho work forward to com-
plol iou us rapidly us possible. The decision reached is to build a wooden
houso on a stone foundation. Mar.y
p oj le have expressed a prefirence for
.i stone structure, Imt such excel
lent effects are now prjduced in wood
and the relative expense of the latter
is so much less, that we think on
the whole the determination of the
roverumeut is a wise one. The new
building will be iu all respects one
worthy of the province and in keeping
.vith the commanding site ou which ii
will he ertcied.
Tiie Ooverumeut hus   also determin-
;d to proceed with the building of the
bridge acro-?s the Fraser at >"ew West
minster,   authorized   by   the  house at
'he  recent   session.    This  bridge will
.('commodate both  highway und  rail-
vuy traflic, and   will play u  very im
ort unt part in the business  affairs of
he south western   Itlalulaiid.    A good
nauv years  Iiiivh   pa-sed   since   tl e
con truction  of a  (nidge in   the place
eferrod to was   proposed,   and   it   is
[iiite a ton4 tune since  the leglsiutuie
oinmiited the province to a large sum
in the nature of a subsidy   or bonus to

finance the undertaking.
I' has also been decided   to send out
i ptrtv to explore the Hope Mountains
.vith the view of determining once uud

n spite of all that bus been  alleged to

Loudon, July 20.-The War Ollici
.ssued late tonight a despatch from
Lord Kitchener giving the correspondence between Mr Reitz and Mr Steyn
that was captured with thn latter'��
baggage nearLindley July 11.
Mr Rehz, under date of May 10,
wrote Mr Steyn that a meeting of tho
Transvaal Ooverninent h��d been held,
attended by Oen. Botha, Geu Vilijoen
and Mr Smuts, to consider ihe national
-irui.iii n.
He went on to catalog tbe diiricaltits,
ihe numerous surrenders of burghers
entailing a heavy responsibility ou
tbe Goverument, the rapidly decreasing
supply of ammunition, the disintegration of the Ooverumeut and the lack
of any definite assurance of European
'���In view of these facts," ho said,
������iho Ooverninent has decided toad-
dress a message to President Kruger,
pointing out the terrible conditions,
The time has passed for us to let mat
ters drift as at present. We must
utke a final .-.top."
MrSteyu, replying May 15, upbraids
Mi, Ueii;s with weak * hearteduess,
sa>ing: "There is still sufficient am
munition io continue the struggle,
You ask what prospect there is of a
successful lei initiation. I ask what
chance there wus for two small lepub
lies when they declared war ugaiusi
the mighty power of Oreat Britain
You will answer that we trusted in
God and iu foreign intervention. What
reason is tbere now to place less trust
iu God ?"
���I have seen recent European news
papers, and I firmly believe that complications will occur*.* in Europe iu
the course of a few months w iiicli will
secure our good fortune."
Mr Steyn also says the fuel that Mr
Kruger aud lhe Boer delegates remain
in Eur pe convinces bim that they
consider the case not beyond hope. He
adds tbat be has summoned Geu De

steps until he has heard further from

The stomach is the vital center of ihe
body. It is the organ from which all
other organs nre fed. A weak stomach
menus a weak man. There never was a
strong man with a weak stomach. What
is called " weak stomach " is in general a
diseased condition of the stomach and
other organs of digestion and nutrition,
which jirevents the proper digestion or
the foosl which is taken into the stomach, and sq reduces the nutrition of the
hosly. When all food is taken away the
hasly starves. Wlien the food eaten is
only digested ansl assimilated in part it
only nourishes tl.e body in part, and so
tli2 body is partly starved. And this
starvation is felt lu everv organ of the
body de|)endcnt on the blood which is
made from food.
Tlle great variety of the cures performed oy Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical
Discovery is due to its remarkable
power to heal diseases of the stomach
ami allied organs. It cures through the
stomach diseases seemingly remote, but
which have their origin in a diseased
condition of the stomach and the other
organs of digestion and nutrition.
" Weak " heart, lungs, kidneys and weakness of other organs is cured with the
cure of the weak stomach.

Diseases are to the bodv what weeds
are to the soil. They divert the nutrition which is necessary to sound health,
anil tV.e body, instesiil of being strong
and hardy, drags out a sickly existence.
When the stomach is d'scas'ed, and the
otlier organs of digestion and nutrition
are involved with it, there is a constant
loss of nutrition by Hie body. The slom-
ache and its nllled organs are net able to
convert fie foods into nourishment, nnd
hence the body and its several organs are
deprived of Hie necessary elements of
vitality. What is known as "weak"
heart or " weak " lungs, " weak " nerves
and other forms of to-culled weakness, are
generally caused by "weak" stomach.
When the stomach sinrl the other organs
of digestion anil nutritioa ore cured, llien
the otlier diseases aro cured witli it. Diseases which are caused hy a diseased
condition of the stomach are cured
through the stomach. Dr. Pierce's
Golden Mcslicnl Discovery cures diseases
of the stomach anil its associated organs
of digestion anil nutrition, It cures
through the stomach diseases of-heart,

In regard lo .Mr. Parson, I beg to
say that lie is a Trustee to ail intents
and purposes until after an invesligii
tion has been huh) and the Council of

appointment, No Trustee must be
elected in his stead unless he (Mr. Par
son) resigns liis seut at tlio Board.
Before an investigation can be held
an affidavit suiting fully the reasons
why Mr, Parsons is disqualified to act
as a Trustee must first be sent to tbis
An affidavit must also be forwarded
stating fully the grounds of protest
against ihe election of Mr. Conner on

Holding an investigation, is nn ex-
pensive mntter, and we are sometimes
asked to hold one when there is no

Euitok Eka :
Sir,-I find that by acting as secretary at the annual school meeting I
have got myself into difficulties. Some
peo| le on tbe south si.le accuse me of
being iu league with the north side,
nnd some of those on the north side accuse me of being in league witli the
south side. I wish to defend myself,
as far us possible, against any such
charges, if yon can give ine space.
The reasons for these complaints are
as follows: First, by an oversight, I
recorded ihe minutes on a separate
sheet of foolscap, insteud of in the
proper miuuto book. This book wns
not given to me anil I look it lor granted tliat it was not on band. Cnme-
qssentty when I banded tbe minutes
over to the School Board, I was told
that tliey should be entered properly in
tlie minute book, I then copied ilietn
into it but refused io sign them unless
the chairman of lhe meeting also
signed them. He refused lo do so, and
in consequence I gave offence lo tlie
Trustees, who evidently thonght I was
in league witli the peojsle on the north
Then, on tlie otlier hand, some of
the people on the north side are an
noyed because I did not make a duplicate or copy of the minutes, and nc
cuse me of being in league with the
Trustees nnd people on the south side.
I did not keep a copy or duplicate be
cause the School Act did not authorize
me to do so.
I regret that I consented to act as
secretary. I was busy in another room
at my annual school reports, and had
no intention of going to tlie meeting,
but some of the people camo to me and
requested me to act as secretary. 1
did so out of pure good-will and a de'
sire to oblige, and had no idea whatever that by doing so I should get myself into difficulty.
I can assure those ou both sides of
thn river who are annoyed at me, that.
I acted strictly in accordance with the
provisions of the School Act and that
I nm not in league with any party
whatsoever. Moreover, ns a teacher, I
cannot afford to antagonize any party.
Hoping that these statements mar
prove satisfactory,
Yours respectfully,
Golden, Julj 25, 1901.
