Victoria, Oct. 10.--The reconstruction and permanent completion of the cabinet of
Premier Mi-Bride was satisfactorily consummated today whon
the Lieutenant governor received all members of the government with the exception of
lion. Thomas Taylor who is
touring the provincial interior.
Tho Hon. W. li. R.oss, K. <'.. the

cabinet the resignation of V. L.

council, Hun. W. .). Bowser as
minister of linanco and agriculture and Hon. Prico Ellison as
chief commissioner of the department of lands wore duly
It is understood that the new
lands minister, Hon. W. R.
Ross, will return forthwith to
his home in Pernio where the
hy election necessitated by his
acceptance of the portfolio will
be brought on without delay
the nomination being fixed for
Friday 21st, inst. and the elections, should his constituents
not decide to return him by ac-
lamation, taking place tlie following day, Saturday tho  22nd.
Hon. Mr. McPhillips was attorney general of the lirst conservative administration of
British Columbia, in 1903 resigning his portfolio on meeting defeat at the polos. A staunch
Roman Catholic, he takes much
interest in church matters and
devotes a considerable, portion
of his valuable time to charitable and benevolent work as
honorary counsel to the Children's Aid society of Victoria
and to tlio work that is being
accomplished under the Children's Protection act. A steadfast liberal conservative himself
he consistently maintains that
the best results in and for Canada and its provinces are under
the present conditions, to he obtained by uncomprising allegiance to the established political |
parties. He lias been member
for the Islands constituency
since 1007 and is 19 years old.

Some of the best moving pictures seen in Hosmer for quite
a while, were put on the screen
at the opera house .Monday'
evening by (lark's moving picture and vaudeville company,
and they were greatly appreciated by a capacity bouse of
200people.    Master Crawford,
who took tho place of Madame
Chance, who is home owing to
the serious illness of her boy,
mastered the illustrated songs
and made an extremely good
hit singing "I'm awful glad I
Mot You" and "lias Anybody!

Elliot's effort's at the piano
wore highly appreciated. A !

| A Golden Opportunity I
The C. P. R. contemplate several improvements in the matter of handling business in Hosmer. At present they are busy
with the construction of a
freight shed which will be built
on what is known as the standard plan in freight sheds. The
building will be III) by 100 fool
which will givo a large capacity
for the handling of freight.
Thi! building will have an office
at tho west end. The house

tank and will run out at a point
opposite the Hosnier Livery e\.
Transfer barn. I). A. McRae, of
Cranbrook, is the foreman in
charge and estimates the building will be complete in about
throe weeks.
Basket Social.
The basket social  and  dance
given on Friday night in  tho
opera house under the auspices
of  Hosmer  Fire  Brigade   was
financially one of the greatest
successes of the season.     The

j proceedings  with  one of their
I lively  selections,   after    which

does not forget it when

"Later on in the same year
the Dominion campaign startod
and Chris Foley ran as labor
candidate against W. A. Galli-
ber in Kootenay. Mr. Smith
went through that constituency
supporting Mr. Foley and denouncing Ualliher and the Liberal party. This act will not be
forgotten by Liberals in the upper country but the principal
reason why Mr. Smith cannot
unite the Liberal party, but
will, il possible, rend it further
asunder, is because he has been
for years, and is today, the
chief supporter of what is
known as the Kelley graft in
l.ritisb Columbia politics, 1'n-
til corrupt arrangements which
contaminate the  Liberal party

IO hoarse cheer. The crowd in Central Square ceased its bantering
chatter and pricked up its ears. Two
stout and pompous gentlemen, with blue
and gold badges dangling from the
lapels of their coats, began to push
back the more venturesome of the spectators., who were straggling into the
street; two more gentlemen with similar
badges began to Stretch the tape aeross

the Garrison statue.
Aud by all these signs aud tokens the
eager onlookers, who had been waiting
iu the square with more or less impatience for the last half hour, realized
that the winner of the Xewmouth Athletic nub's annual ten-mile road race
was approaching the finish.
Necks were craned eagerly; there was
much crowding ami jamming against the
restraining ropes. The cheering sound
ed nearer, and then into the far end
of the square came a hatless man on a
bicycle, and trailing him, a smile of
confidence upon the big, homely, dust-
grimed face, a certain confidence in the
steady pad pad of the running feet,
loped' easily a tall, lithe, tow headed
man, whose grin broadened as the crowd
in the square greeted him with a mighty
"Who is it.'" asked a hundred eager
voices in chorus,

The man on the bicycle dismounted
and mopped his perspiring face; the tall
man iu the loosely flapping running suit
lifted high his hands as he breasted
thc tape, and was promptly surrounded
by a mub of enthusiastic admirers, who
thumped him on the back and tore out
bits of his running shirt i'or souvenirs.
Some one posted uu the roof of tlie shoe
factory, where .Nils Swenson was fore
mau iu the cutting room, hauled down
the whistle rope and sent scream after

ing its victorious note skyward.
Then, while the overworked gentleman
with the badges strove to clear the
course for the other contestants in the
big Swede's wake. Nils Swenson was
hoisted to the shoulders of a bawling
mob ami borne in triumph to the nearby rooms of the Xewmoitth Athletic
Club, just above Connolly's drugstore
across the square.
Here, after much difliculty on the part
of his trainer—the little man who had
accompanied him over the course nn the
bicycle—the room was cleared of all
save the victor, his trainer and a few

non committal reply. "Tough old grades

all right. Nils's time's the record, by
most  a  minute.
Swenson, perched ou a table, while
Hanley stripped oil' the spiked shoes and
bathed the long legs with alcohol, shook
liis head in deprecat ion.
"Ay didn't roon none." he declared.
"Ay didn 't try to bust me no records.

"Geo! but you're fresh us u lark,"
said one of the Swede'.- friends, who
had been allowed to remain iu the club-
rooms. "You ain't turned a huir, win-

"And so'd  I," chimed in another.
' ■ I d be wilJiu' to I'isk my wail on

Gailley glanced up sharply, seemed
about to speak, and then evidently
thought better of it, for he plied his
sponge with never a word, yet with a
certain covert grin ou his narrow features that spoke volumes, had anyone
taken the trouble to notice it.
Presently Swenson, in his street
clothes, limped oil' with his satelites to
receive the trophy from the hands uf
the committee, and Hanley found himself quite alone iu the stuffy little

liunlly merged into a full-throated bray
of laughter.

Hanley went down to the street, still
thronged with crowds discussing the
race. lie elbowed his way through them,
and headed for a certain pool-room dowu
in the mill district. Here he found a
thin young man, with fingers stained
from innumerable cigarettes, who was
sadly practising dl(licitIt bank-shufs on
one'of the deserted  pool  tables.
" Hallo, Skinny!" Mr. Hanlev greeted
tl ther.
"Hallo, Dutch! " was the reply. "I

Hanley merely nodded. "Sny. Skinny,

"Sure thing,'' said the other, as with
his eye he measured the angles of q
shot he was about   to essay.
"Gol   a  good,   fat   wad .''"
"l'h huh!"
"Listen lo me, then," said Hanley,
"That dub of a Sou'wegiuu has gut the

And what's more, the bunch that wns

risk all the coin they've got thai he can
do if."
"So?"' snid the gentleman at the
pool-table with a comprehending grin.
"Well, now, maybe he could. I watched
him today. Ho had plenty of reserve
force when he finished, He didn't
stretch himself none.''
"Aw, that's all right," Ganloy declared, "but he couldn't do it in a hour
or better, not in a thousand years, he
couldn't. And even if he could, he won't
have no chance to, for to run it in that
time he's got to have pace, and me and

"T begin to," said thc other gravely.
"Say, you ean get a thousand placed

daffy over his runnin'," Ganloy explained,   "and   you   can   get   it   at   even
money, at that. I'll get the race on and

Skinny grinned, "Hike her up, Dutch.

So well did the astute Ganley do his
promoting that iu three tlavH Xewmouth
buzzed with the news that .Nils Swenson
would make an attempt to run the (dd
Uedarville-Newmouth ei>urse in an hour
or better. Moreover, so subtly did Hau
ley inspire the belief among Swenson's
followers that the Swede would make
good, so artfully did he convey the idea,
without pulling if iu so many words,
that Swenson was the marvel of the cen
tury, that Swenson's comrades among
the mill hands fairly fell over them j
selves iu their eagerness to place their
money on the event, Nor eould 1 hey I
know that practically alt the money
which covered their own passed through
the hands—nay, even came from the
pockets—of a certain sad-t'aced young
man, known commonly as Skinny Grant.

talking over matters in the poolroom

him  back too hard.    We'll  fix it so'st
he'll  make  it   in something like a   hour,
and two minutes—see?   I've given himl
instructions to go easy at the start and!
sprint nt the finish.    T'll hold him back
at the beginniu'—hold him back so hard
t hat   with   all   his   sprint in'    he    cau't
make it.''
At that moment Swenson came out lo
the porch, his spiked running shoes in
his hand. He sat down on the .steps to
lace them on.
" Vy sbinsher! Ay thinks Ay could
roon me one thousand miles tonight,''
he chuckled, throwing back his shoulders
and tilling his big lungs. "Ay feels me
thut goot, Cut out the fast pace,
Dntchy. Py time! I holds him all right.
Ay roons me tonight like Ay never roons
before in my lifes!
"Well, well, now, that's sure enough
good news," said Hanley, "but yuu
want to look' out, Nils, and not go killin '
yourself at the start, just because you
happen to be feelln' pretty fit. There's
ten miles to go before you're done, and
there's some still' grades to be climbed,
at that. Ho easy at the start, aud don't
go to killin' yourself, but save yer
strength for a grand burst of speed ut
tlie finish."
"Vuh! I roons yoost as you says."
said Swenson.
Grant favored Hanley with a covert ■
wink, and then turned to the Swede,
" Yer o(1|ter iii ii your best. Nils," ho
said, "and  yer  want   to do as Hutchy I
here says.    Ife knows best how to handle |
yer.    Don't go tryin' to do better than
lie wants yer to.     lie's got a   bunch of
money up ou yer, himself.''
Hanley got to his feet. "Come on
down to the starlin '-point, Nils," he instructed, "and you, Skinny, git the hoss
and fetch it aloug. We want to git
goin' sharp on time."
Arrived at ibe starting-point, where
swarms uf spectators in c:irriagen and;
on motors and bicycles were prepared to'
follow the runner over fhe course, Swen-
son shed ihe gorgeous bathrobe which;
swathed him, and crouched at the line,,
a tense, grim machine nf supple muscles j
and steady nerves.
Skinnv ' Grant     and     Dutch    Hanlev |
climbed'into the buggy; the dock on the
village church began chiming the hour
of five; the oflicial starter cried "Aro|
you ready?" und Swenson crouched on
liis toes and finger-tips.
"Set!" said the starter, Swenson's
lithe form been me rigid.
A revolver flashed into fhe air; the
buggy whirled nway; close to the rear
wheel Swenson leaped into his long, easy
stride and smiled his confidence to the
howling witnesses of the start. After
him came the enrriatfos and the motors
and the bicycles, raising a tremendous
cloud of dust.
Up the first long lull thoy toiled, down
the other slope, across tho little bridge
that spanned tho brook, and up another
long slope.
"Hey!" Swenson hailed his pacers.
Ganley turned grimly oa the buggy
"You're doin' well enough.'" he
shouted back to his charge. " 'Tain't
time to let out, yet! "
"Faster!" Swenson -urgled plead
"Shut up!' Hanley Knapped, "I'm
doin ' this pacin '! ''
Hut a mile farther on Swenson w;iS
pleading again for more speed. ' * Hit
her up!'' he urged.
Ganley's teeth shut grimly. They were
approaching another long upward
slope. "I'll fix him right here," be
whispered to Grant. " 1 '11 take him up
this hill at apace that'll make him quit
his yowJin ' for speed."
He touched the hor.se with the whip.
They rumbled up the hill at a lively clip.
At the top Skinny Grant craned over the
back of the seat, straining his eyes
through the dust-cloud   following them.
"Shook him, ain't we?" Hanley .inquired succinctly, but before Grant
could reply a dusty figure puffed up beside them.
"That's the stout'! " panted Swenson.
" Voost a leedle faster yet! I can stand
hiin all right! "
" Holy saints,' What's the man made
of.'" gasped Skinny.
"Search me! lie ain'f human," flan-
ley grunted.
But despite Swenson's pleadings for
a faster pace, Hanley. with alternate
threats and cojolings, supplemented by
false bulletins of the time from Skinny
Grant, managed to hold the eager runner
They reached the end of the ninth
mile. The finish at the square iu New
mouth was but a mile away. Hanley
heaved a "ieat sigh of relief.
"We got him safe." he said in a low
voice to his companion in the buggy.
"We'll let him run his legs off now. lie
Couldn't make it if he had wings,"
He turned about ou the seat.
"Come on with the sprint now, Nils,"
he called. "I'm goiu' to let the baste
out. Come ou with the hustle. You
gotter sprint—see?"
He look out the whip to fleck the
horse, but, even arf he did so, an automobile swung into the roadway just
ahead of them from one of fhe many
cross-roads. There was a yell of fear
from Skinny Grant, a shout of warning
from the chauffeur of the motor, and
the car shot by them iim whirl of dust,
just grazing oue rear wheel.
The horse made a desperate plunge
for the side of the road, tore through a
clump of low wild-cherry bushes, and,
with Hanley clutching the reins des
perately, and yelling a strident scries
of terrified "Whoa's!" at tiie top o(^
his voice, the rocking buggy went tear'
ing toward Newmouth in a blinding
whirl of dust.
Across the bridge they rumbled to
tho mad thunder of galloping 'hoofs; into
the outskirts of A'ewmoulh they rattled,
swung a corner crazily on two wheels,
righted again by sheer good luck, round
ed another corner in the same crazy
fashion, and sped into the square.
The crowd assembled to witness the
finish broke right ami left, while wild
shouts of fear went heavenward. Ono
man, braver than tin.' rest, leaped for the
bit in the brute's frothing mouth, miss
ed it, and went sprawling in gloriously
intn the mud. And at- that moment the
right rein snapped in two under the
strain. The buggy swerved sharply to
the left and brought up with a splintering crash against tne vory lamp-post
which  marked  the finish  of the course.
.Mr. Hanley got out. So did Mr.
Shinny Grant. Their alighting was none
of their own volition. Grant shot
spread-eagled over the dash-board,
crashed into a man who was trying
vainly tn get out of his way, and together they went to the pavement,
neither hurt beyond a few bruises. Hanley sailed like some huge, ungainly bird,
straight over the sidewalk ami landed
wilh a woof in a new-made pansy-bed in
the little park about the Harrison
Chattering like excited magpies, the
bystanders fished the dishevelled ligure
from the pansy-bed, and. even as they
set him mi his trembling legs, unother
figure; sweat stained, panting, grimed
with the dust of the road, flashed up
with hands high in the air, as he strove
to breast the tape which   wasn't there.
A bedlam of roaring cheers seemed
fairly tn rack the little squaro, and
dazedly, as in some hideous nigfitmare,
Hanley was looking into Swenson's
bloodshot eyes, and listening to Swenson's half-choked, panting voice.
" !'.v golly! Vou sets me oue awful
pace for that sprint, but I holds it,
yoost the same—T holds it and 1 wins
out. Fifty-nine minutes, twenty seven
and three-fifths seconds is what f makes
it in. Ky Holly! I makes a pile of7
monev for the boys that backed me to
do it!"
Then the whooping crowd closed in
about their hero, lifted him to their
shoulders and bore him away. Through
the struggling, howling press Hanley
saw'Skiiiny Grant elbowing a way toward him." With a groan he turned
away, and scurried oft' through the mob.
ACCORDING to the New Vork Times,
Sir James Grant, of Ottawa, the
well-known Canadio n physician,
believes that he has discovered not'exactly the elixir of life, but at any rate
a means of greatly prolonging youth,
and apparently of bringing youth back
to some extent.
Sir James is himself the best advertisement of his-method, for he possessed
amazing vitality for his age. now nearly

A SKY KIDKK who was not coinem

later. Within the green garden's of
London's Kagle Inn, in the late spring
of t824, the eye.s of the populace feast-
k *'d upon the "Royal George," a "stu-
J pendous and magninceut" steed which
strained at its harness while its gaudy
ear rested upoo a stage erected for
the occasion. It was a day suited by
weather to novel adventure. The earth
below, warm under the northward-

Cheers greeted the little heroine as
she ascended the stage, and, after she
aad curtsied iu return, the aeronaut
helped her into the gaily adorned oval
car with its coverings of crimson velvet,
festooned and fringed with green and
yellow silk. The crowds pressed closer
to the car, and some women offered the
pretty passenge* their cloaks aud their
shawls, which she declined. Others asked if she did net wish the attendance of
some of her tan ily, but she replied

forthwith, the balloon rose iuto the air,
after the car had been nearly capsized
by a defect of the lauuchuig-gcar. For
a while the "Koyal George" pursued
its course steadily in a southwesterly
direction. Then it* entered a thick
cloud and was lust to the view of earthly gazers. Up to the last second when
it was within view of the observers it
was sailing along with majestic calm,
apparently perfectly stanch and airworthy. There was not the slightest
reasou for any apprehension.
A rumbling noise, like thunder, came
down from tue sky that afternoon, to

of a heavy body that had fallen
through an adjacent tree. Running to

ground great folds of silk, from beneath which issued smothered moans.
Ho hastily moved the tangled mass, to
disclose a pale and terror-stricken girl
in a white dress.
Hasping a question as to where she
was, she swooned, and was tenderly
laid out upon the grass with her head
upon a pillow. Deeper beneath the collapsed body of the ill-fated "Koyal
George" was found its lifeless driver.
Side by side the two limp Iigures
were curried to the Plough Inn, ut Car-
Bhalton, and placed in neighboring
rooms. Harris was gone beyond recall,
and his corpse was sent forthwith to
a sorrowing widow, but his companion
still retained a spark of life.

So at five on that midsummer afternoon the '' Barnum'' rose gracefully

northeast, out; over Lake Michigan and
in a direction which, if Hollowed, would
have takeu it. to Grand Haven, one hundred and twenty miles distant.

Captain Templer would not believe
that his balloon' had dropped into the
sea, nnd aeronautical experts calculated
that it contained ample gas to carry it
to the continent of I'auope. The spol
where the balloon was first reported to
have sunk was revisited, ami grappling
irons raked the sen-bottom without success. Poles and flags were raised on
shore to give the searching boats the
range of lhe balloon's flight, and a reward nf one thousand dollars was offer
ed for the recovery of Powell's body.
Tugs were sent out cm hurry orders to
scour thi' Channel coasts id' Guernsey,
tlersey, and France, and, at length, the
French navy was called upon to eo
operate ia t lie search.
Then followed rumors that Powell had
alighted iu Brittany, that he had been
seen passing over Hartlepool iu a fog,
ufter coming in from the sea; that a
soldier on board the Courier had viewed
him speeding safely over the Chaunel;!
that he had sailed off Alderney; and)
that a fisherman of Isigny had seen the
collapsed "Saladin" floating in the
water about thirty miles J'roin the
French coast.
The last report was that three customhouse officers at Santandor, Spain, had
seen it moving over Mount del Puerto,
spitting out sparks as it sailed by. The
guards ascended the mountain to get
a better view of it, but there came a
gust, of wind which drove it iu the -direction of the Bay of Biscay, and it was
seen tin1 following day near Bilbao,

Proper Lubrication
For Traction Engines, Wagons, Etc.
Mica Axle Grease
makes the wheel
as nearly fric-
tionless as possible and reduces
the wear on axle
and box. It ends
axle troubles,
saves energy in
the horse, and when used on axles of traction engines economizes fuel and power.
Granite Harvester Oil
insures better work from the new machine
and lengthens the liie of the old. Whue-
ever bearings are loose or boxes worn it
takes up the play and acts like a cushion.
Changes of weather do not affect it.
Standard Gas Engine Oil
is the only oil you need. It provides perfect lubrication under high temperatures without appreciable carbon deposits on rings or
cylinders, and is equally good for the external bearings.
Capitol Cylinder Oil
delivers more power, and makes the engine
run better and longer with less wear and tear,
because its friction-reducing properties are
exactlv fitted to the requirements of (team
traction engines and steam  plants.

During the tirst few days of last
month the learned legal counsel tor the
United States, (Jreat Britain, and Newfoundland presented to the International Court of Arbitration at The Hague
the American, British, aud Canadian
contentions in the Jong-drawn out, complicated fisheries dispute. The writer
of this article, Mr. J'. T. McOrath in the
American Review of Reviews is preeminently well equipped to set forth
tho entire question from all sides clearly
and impartially. He is a journalist of
long e.vperience and keen perception.
For many years he has been au editor of
influential Newfoundland newspapers,
and has been known for his fair aad
well-informed attitude upon Canadian*
American relations. The Editor of the
Review of Reviews states that he believes that a Newfoundlander of Mr.
McUrath's experience and ability will
make, ou the whole, a more useful and
adequate presentation of this important and involved subject than would be
written by an American sympathizer
with New Kngland's claims in the matter.

western section of the seaboard, which
were confirmed and amplified by lln*

M in ITS!!, 'I'he Inter convention, which
terminated the American Wur of Independence, contained clauses assuring
American subjects of certuin rigid,.- in
the fisheries of the Grand Bunks uml on
whnt we now know as lhe Canudiau
(Including Newfoundland) seaboard.
Tho Americans hnd claimed the right
to prosecute these fisheries nnd to resort
to this seaboard line' us they hud done
prior to the war, but tllis claim wns not
allowed uud they were granted lesser
concessions. The War of 1812 terminated this treaty un.l, ns the Americans
were largely engaged in the northern
fisheries, serious friction ensued until
in ISIS u treaty, or convention, between
I J Great Britain und America wns signed
at London to provide for the currying
on of these fisheries in future.
The convention of 1818 contains the
very essence of this whole dispute, us
■we understand il today. Thut, treaty
was cc compromise between the extreme
views of boll, pnrties. Tho Americans,
hampered bv tin' limitations imposed
upon their fishery privileges by tli,' Wni
of 1812. were constantly violating the
British lews, while the British, in their
sweeping construction eel' their sovereign
rights, risked precipitating unother con
llict. Prior lee ISIS ull negotiations concerning the fisheries hnd been based
upon the theory Ihut Britain had a proprietary interest in llu" bank, or deep
sen fisheries, ns well us in the const., or
inshore fisheries, and nil questions turn-
eel lent iiiioii I lie latter see much as upon
lhe formpr, beenuso the prosecution of
these bank fisheries wus greatly facilitated by the use of ihe Newfoundland
eon"! us ci base of operations,  I to secure:   eeuilils  Clllel   Sll|i|ilie'S.
But now this position wus abandoned
unci Britain virtually restricted herself
lee her const fishery' rights, the Grand
.Hunks and outer waters being admitted
lo be free lee nil untious, America,
however, advanced a claim to inshore
fishing, anel the difficulty wns adjusted
in this wise:
Americnu subjects were grunted-
(!) The liberty to tish on equal terms
with  Hritish subjects ou  the southwest
,    eons, of Newfoundland, und also to bind
"ion  the  unsettled  portions  eel'  the  sen-
- /board and dry their cateb.
(*!1 The liberty to lish cm the west
const of Newfoundland, from Cape Ray
to Gape Norman, but without the right
to land nnd dry their lish.
(3) The liberty to fish on the shores
of the Magdalen  Islands nud
(4) The liberty to tish on the const
of Labrador and Anticosti eastward and
northward indefinitely und to hind und
dry the catch, this latter concession fur*
their containing the proviso that they
could.tish iu the buys nud harbors und
creeks, whereas with regard tee Newfoundland the proviso simply wns that
they could lish on the "const."
(5) The liberty to enter ihe other
purls of the coast of Newfoundland and
Canada to secure shelter, effect ropairs,
purchase wood, and obtain wnter. but
for no other purpose whatever,
in return for these' concessions the
"United stutes renounced forever the
right to lish within three marine miles

I'he effect "f this treaty wus thai tho
*l Americans Burrondored tho Inshore lish-
{) cries, except ecu certain coasts, un.l so-
cured cm unrestricted enjoyment of the
deep-sen fisheries. II might be supposed
that this would have pul uu end to nil
friction nnd promoted amity nnd goodwill between the subjects of tho two mi
tions. But ii did not, Within u year
or two arose thc famous "headland dispute," namely: Should tho line—three
murine miles off—follow Ibe sinuosities
of the const and be drawn across the
mouths of the buys where they are six
miles wide, nr should it be drawn from
headland to headland, burring out foreigners from nil inclosed "territorial"
wnter, large or small? The British authorities, in Cunuda nnd Newfoundland,
adopted the "headline" doctrine and
excluded the Americans from even the
Buy of Finely, in Nova Scot in, Bnie des
Chulcurs, in Quebec, and Fortune Buy,
in Newfoundland. Muny difficulties and
conflicts ensued. American vessels were
Seized almost every year, anel many of
them wore confiscated for flagrant
Tn considering the whole treaty ep.os-
tioa it. is important to remember thnt,
/ beginning at Cape St. John, the northern extremity of Notre Dame Bay, on
the northeast coast of Newfoundland,
passing northward to Belle Isle Strait
and thence southward along the west
coast of Capo Ray, the French already-
enjoyed the right of fishing in the coast-
wise waters anel of landing nnd drying
their catch on the seabeearei, with a further proviso embodied in a declaration
attached to the Treaty of Versailles,
that British subjects were not te. inter
fere with the l-'rench by their competi
tion; in other words, making the French
the predominant partner iu the fisheries
of that regiou.
Thnt this fact wus recognized by the
British and American negotiators of the
treaty of 1S1X is evident from their having phrased the concession to American
subjects in thnt treaty as merely n concession to lish in the inshore waters of
the west coast, but without any landing
privilege such as wns granted to them
on the southwest const, where the
French  had  uo  rights.
The difficulties between Britain and
France iu regard to the region were not
terminated until six yenrs ugo, when, in
return for concessions in Morocco and
West Africa, Prance agreed to abandon
her claims to u lodgment on Newfoundland's western seaboard, uinl the few
French lishing stutions thereon were
purchased by ihe liritish Government,
Prance contenting herself with retaining
the right to lish on the coustwise waters

un.l because the present method of the

During the1 ninety-two yenrs thul hnve
elapsed since the signing of the treaty
of ISIS this Atlantic Fisheries Question
hus proved one of eniistu.it friction to
the two nations. Canada, ns well ns
Newfoundland, has been u factor ... the
dispute becuuse of American subjects

shores eef lhe Magdalen Islands and ecu
the section of Labrador west of Belle
Isle Strait, both eef which belong to
Newfoundland, us they dee on the west
coast eef Newfoundland and on the eastern section of Labrador, which belongs
to her. Besides this, the presence of
valuable food fislu-s in the Buy of Fiitnly

has always proved uu irresistible temp

invade the three-mile limit, un.l fish in
the coustwise waters of the Dominion,
where they have no treaty righl t" 'he

waters ami shores, north of latitude 30,
were thrown open tee Canadian and Xew

The Ainericun fishermen thus obtained
the right to purchase bait und other sup-
lie'-; to land cmd trans-ship fish; to use
the bays and harbors; to prepare, eloan,
pack, ciml dry fish, and to enjoy sundry
commercial privileges. It beiag admitted thai these cu --ions were of greater vnlue than tliee-o the British subjecls
could enjoy iu American waters, the
United States granted free' ontry to its
markets for muny of the products of the
British North American colonies. This
treaty worked vory ndvniitageously tee
both parties, but the Unitod siutes abrogated if in 186(1 cct the' expiry of the
twelve years for which it wns originnlly
negeet ill! eel.
H had effectually disposed of nil pending difficulties, allayed friction between
the two countries, nud promoted u murk-
eel improvement in their trade, nnd its
abrogation revived nil the unwelcome
drawbacks lo national comity. The' sit-
uation wns soon embittered by u renewal
of the conflicts of the previous non-re
ciprocity period, uinl within live years
it new treaty had to be negotiated, in
IS71, known ns the "Thornton-Fish,"
or "Washington" treaty. This elenlt
with several features of commerce und
navigation, ,'is well ns the' fisheries issue,
but. it is with the latter only thul we
nre now concerned. The "fishery articles" revived those of the 1854 treaty,
and the Americans offered free ontry to
United Slntes markets for run!. Bait,
lish, and lumber, fur u period of twelve
years from tbe first of -Inly, 1874, in return for access tie lhe liritish North

These herrings, whether salted or

of men required to procure cargoes fur

lishing venture, proved mutually advantageous, for the Americans bought the

colonists about $250,000 annually for
