GOLDEN, BC.    NOVEMBKR.   25,   1908.
IrtUsb Foreign Office finds Mikado's Mills-
ten In Waiting Fer Chance to
Sep In
London, Nov. 24. Japan is watching
closely the development of affairs in
China and is preparing for whatever
emergency the crisis may bring, according to advices received today by the
British foreign office.
Despite Japanese denials of interference in Chinese affairs, there is
every indication that tbe Mikado ia
keenly alive to the possibilities of the
Oriental situation and will not be found
unprepared in any event.
Chinese message*, reaching London
by Japan, aay that Prince Chun is
splitting up the Chinese army and appointed division commanders with separate authority, as he fears to trust to
the consolidation of power under any
one general.
This is taken to mean that serious
disaffection exists in the ranks of the
army and gives color to the report that
a revolution is threatened.
Berlin, Nov. 24.—German military
experts were fired upon by Russian
soldiers today while making experiments with a war balloon. None was
injured but the affair haa stirred court
circles and diplomatic agents will have
to bring about an explanation. The
balloon waa about 100 meters above the
ground when it reached ths frontier.
The Russian guards informed the expert! that they eould not cross tiie line.
The men in the balloon seemingly disregarded this order and proceeded on
their course. The guards tired with-1
out further notice. The experts brought
the balloon to earth at once and communicated with the foreign office, which
sent a portest to the Russian embassy.
Strong representations are being prepared and will be sent to St. Peters-1
burg. Russia will be asked to disavow
the action of her soldiers in firing upon
German property.
Winnipeg, Man., Nov. 24.—On his return from a tour of British Columbia,
Col S.D. Gordon, retired, of London,
said he had accompanied Mr. R. Mar-
pole, executive agent of the C. P. R.,
to British Columbia to make a report
as to whether British Columbia waa a
good place for retired British Army
officers to settle. He traveled all over
Vancouver Island and the fruitgrowing
districts, including Okanagan, Kootenay
and Nelson districts. He was very
favorably impressed and while he did
not want to give his report prematurely,
he expressed the hope to induce' many
British officers to settle in British Columbia and on the island. Already in
British Columbia there are many retired army officers settled on fruit farms
and ranches.

Bert Whitehouae, a young lad aged
16, was drowned in Four-mile lake near
Revelstoke  on  Sunday.    He and a
companion named Carmichael were out
duck hunting and attempted to get a
bird they had shot by going after it ih
an old boat tbey found on the lake
shore.   The boat leaked badly and fill*
ed rapidly.   Whitehouae,  in moving,
made it lurch and getting excited, jumped into deep water, although he was
unable to swim.    Carmichael, seeing
his friend's danger, jumped out too and
got hold of him and tried to swim to
shore with his burden but was unable
to get through the ice.   He then tried
to pull Whitehouae back to he boat and
succeeded in dragging him near it al
though the water.ogged boat was drifting away again to the  middle of the
slough,   After a manful effort Carmichael got up to the boat and in order
to secure it waa forced to let go hia
hold of his friend who by this time was
numbed with cold and well nigh exhausted.   As soon  aa the supporting
hand of the swimmer let go,   White-
house sank,  but Carmichael quickly
grabbed the straps of his game bag in
order to pull him above the surface
again.   Unfortunately the bag came
away and the body sank to tbe bottom.
Carmichael, who waa pretty well done
up with cold and with hia plucky .fforts
to rescue his friend, had just enough
strength left to get ashore and hasten
to the nearest camp to break the news,
leaving an Italian who came up, to point
out to the men where the body lay under water   Mrs. Whitehouae has been
prostrated at the loss of her son,  and
the accident has caused widespread
sympathy for the mother and relatives.
through those towering mountains,
Cathedral Peak and Mount Wapta, is
proceeding so satisfactorily that it is
probable the transcontinental expresses
of the company will begin to run thru'
! the tunnels next spring. This is the
information given by Mr. James A.
Macdonnell, of the contracting firm of
Macdonnell, Gzowski & Co., who are
building over a mile of tunnel work.
The object of the tunnel is to avoid
the'steep grade which, as all who have
1 travelled through to the coast will remember, calls for three or even four
engines to push and pull the train up
the "Big Hill" between Field and1
Hector, at the summit of the Canadian
Rockies. When the tunnels are com*
pleted, the present m'leage between
those two points will be increased from
four to eight miles, but the grade will
be reduced by exactly one hundred per
cent. There is one tunnel on each aids
of the river, one being 3,200 feet in
length, and the other 2,800 feet, and a
curious point.about them is that the
exits will be almost immediately below
the entrance.
The tunnels are 17 feet wide and 25
feet high, and the progress made is at
the rate of from 30 to 40 feet per day.
The contractors, besides employing
1,000 men, have installed two large
compressor plants, and active operations are being carried on at both ends
of the tunnels. Aa a matter of fact,
the ends are only about eight hundred
feet apart.

One of the burni.i^' vauestioiu which
is beng discussed by the Convention oi
School Trustees now in session ai
Revelstoke in the Canadian iUg. Our
sympathy has always been with those
who contended that the Red Ensign
with the Canadian coat of arms on the
fly should be hoisted over the School
houses rather than the Red Ensign with
nothing on the uy. The discurfdion has
more than once been so conducted thai,
it would have been imagined that tht
Canadian flag was to be hoist d inste<tc
of the Union Jack. The Union Jack,
nowever, is just as prominent a part ol
the Canadian flag as it is of the Britis.

"       or
An era in the evolution of the British
empire was Sunday, the flrst day of
this month, when the king proclaimed
the principle of self-government for
India to be approached by gradual evolution.   There .will be many in England
startled by .his act.   They will account
it little less than the laying of a mine
under the foundations of  the  empire.
Anglo-Indians will with one Voice denounce it as suicidal, all the more because it is plain to them all that from
this proclamation of the king there is
no going back.   Liberals may hope at
great cost and by slow process to reverse a Conservative mistake, as in the
case of Mr. Balfour's public house es-
tablishihent act, and Conservative may
hope in some cases to reverse a Liberal
blunder when the country  returns to
what they consider sanity; but in this
case it is plain that t~ere is no going
back.   All that can be done by changt a
in imperial councils is to oromote or retard ihe evolution which must go on.
As it had to go on anyway, however it
is quite plain that no harm is done, but
a great deal of good by the government
franklyopening ita own eyes and those
of England and India, and of the world
to the fact that the time has come when
the coast, awaking from its  upparent
apathy and submission, willlnsigt upon
joining   in   the   great  self-governing
movement that is so rapidly possessing
the world.   Britain, the mother of parliaments, and the home of liberty, has
long been educating the world, and especially her empire, by her. example,
and it ia as titling as it « inevitable
that she should go forward in this work
in India ao that some day a great self-
governing country.shaR.be created, dependent or independent,  but grateful
and friendly to Britain for her creation.
But that is looking very far.
India or Hindostan is a wonderful
country, of Asia, consisting partly of
territory under the direct administration
of British officials and partly of native
states, all subordinate in varying degrees of relationship to the suzerain
power. The British possession of in-
dia was acquired by the East India
company, by conquest or treaty, in the
course of just a hundred years, dating
from the battle of Plassey, in 1757.
In 1757-8, as a result of the mutiny of
the sepoy army, the sovereignty of
"John company" ceased and the direct
government of India was vested in the
crown by the India act of 1768. In accordance with the Royal Titles act of
1876, for which Lord Beaconsfleld has
to be credited, the sovereign of Great
Britain and Ireland assume* the additional title of empress or emperor of
India. The parliamentof Great Britain
ia supreme over India but that supre-
mancy is inforced by ministerial responsibility, rather than by direct legislation, and practically alljhe statutes
relating to India are in the nature of
either constitutional    enactments or
financial provisions. The act abolishing the East India company created a
secretary of state for India, together
with a council of twenty members selected for a period of ten years from a-
mong Indian ex-officials for the most
part. The main duty of the council is
to control the expenditures of the Indian revenues both in India and elsewhere, and generally to conduct the
busines' aone in England in regard to
the government>of India-
In England every measure concerning India is in the name of the secretary,
of state, and he alone is responsible to
parliament. The real emperor of India
today is Mr. Morley, and few have been
abler or more courageous. In India
the supreme authority is vested in the
governor-general-in-council. The viceroy is generally appointed for five
years, ano has power to overrule his
.council of eight members, also appointed for five years, in cases of emergency.
For purposes of legislation this council
is augmented by sixteen additional
members, ha>f Of whom must be non-
official persons, and of whom some are
always natives. The staff of administration consists of the covenanted
civil service, appointed after competitive examination in England; the statutory civil servants selected from among
natives; military officers of the sta.l
corps in civil employ, and a miscellaneous class of uncovenanted civil servants of different grades, who may be
either Europeans or natives. Educational institutions are of two kinds,
the public ones which are .under the
department of public instruction, and
the private, which are not. I There are
five universities, with nearly two hundred affiliated colleges for arts, Oriental learning and professional courses,
nearly six thousand secondary schools
and over a hu dred thousand primary
schools. Nearly five million pupils attend the schools, and in them have
been introduced to English history aud
aspirations. Here is found that root
of liberty which may grow into a full
legislative tree.

A good story that will mako you
laugh is better for you than five dollars' worth of doctor's medicine.   The
first of "The Old Home House Series
of eleven complete stories begins in the
Family Herald and  Weekly Star,  of
Montreal, this week.  There will be
one complete story each issue for th*
next three months,  and that means
many a good hearty laugh around the
fireside during the winter evenings. A
subscriber to that big weekly certainly .
gets value for his money.    Tba papei
only costs one dollar a year, and thi
amount of sound information given ii
a year's reading is marvellous.   Th '
stories alone could not be bought fo
twenty dollars.  Tho agricultural col
umns of the paper are r-tgarded as th
best in America.   The Family Heral
and Weekly Star should not bom!
in any Canadian Home.
