Merchants, Clerks, and Frionds Have
,  Enjoyable Picnic on Thetis
It wos a merry pnrty bont on having a good timo that sailed across
tho bay on Thursday afternoon In
the good ship, tho Flying Scud and
her consort, tho Fairy Sprite. Nothing was said as to destination,
Somebody hnd tho ordering ol the
cruise, and it was onough for some
, of the Jaded gentlemen to seo that
the fair crow ol tho Fairy Sprite
, wore provided with picnic hampors.
■Of courso, It is not exactly tho part
of fairies and sprites to pack heavily
laden baskets around, hut your mere
man, out for pleasure, enn swallow
all the incongruity in the world so
long as thero ls a sandwich lelt to
toko with It,
Howevor, lest the wrltor Is lod still
further from his subject by these
samo fairy questions, he had better
hasten to explain that what ho is
trying to do Is to glvo aif^ account
of tho . annual picnic of the Merchants' Clerks. All told a party of
about fifty foregathered at Harrup's
boat houso, and tolorably close to
the appolntod hour cast looso and
churned Into tho liny. Thoro was
some little dissatisfaction here. Whether It was the attraction of the
nnme, or tho machination of some
mischievous spark, the lodlos all
took passage in the Fairy Sprite.
Somo of the mon who ought to have
been attended, but who always man-
ago not to bo on the picnic day, felt
very wrathy nnd "grouchy'.' for a
time, but gradually thoy woro round
and thoy managed much hotter— on
the roturn journoy at night.
Thetis Inland was mado without
mishap, and thoro around by Mr.
Hunter's ranch a Jolly day was
spont. Mr. Hunter kindly allowed
tho party the uso of a Hold and there
wcro some vigorous games nt football. It wns benedicts against bachelors, or such as aro positively know
to be spllcod against thoso who nre,
or profess to be, single. In spito
of tho doubtful ond suspicious cases
In tho latter team the appropriated
stiffs put It all ovor them. Captain
Adam kept goal and spent such time
as he was not wanted between tho
sticks among tho ladles, so that tho
Benedicts were easily favorites with
the fair spectators, and received all
the encouregemont.
A Indies' game followed next nnd
lt soon developed that thero woro
some natural born klokers among
them. Tho wny somo of thom fair
players swatted that ball was Just a
revelation, However, there were
some of tho boyB who simply could
not stand this division of interests,
notably ono of tho town's most artistic docoratoos. So a game was
started in which everybody could loin
in. You know the game, anil' it
wont tho limit.
A camp Uro musicale wound p ln
sweetest hnrmony a most enjoyable
day's outing. If anyone felled to
havo a (rood timo it wns certainly
not tho fault of tho picnic. The
mere men are unanimous In their
praiso of tho spread provided for
thom by tho Indies. The refreshments -wore excellent; but as a brewer of tea. that snmo artistic ono has
something to learn. The committee
of management aro also to bo congratulated upon tho arrangements
thoy mado and upon the manner In
which they saw to everybody's pleasure nnd comfort.
William* and Hawthornthwaite Discuss Smith's Record and
Th* usual by-weekly meeting oi tho
Socialist party wa* held on tbe
Green on Sunday laat. Generally tha
Socialist* conllno themsolves to economics, but probably a* a reflex of
th* meeting held in "Nnnalmo by
Smith the previous day, there waa a
fair share of party politic* discussed
nono ot which was particularly complimentary towards Ralph Smith.
Mr. James Cartwright confined him
self to u discussion of the factors determining tho actions of ths Individual, pointing out that even th* so-
called "scab" wna usually the product of economic conditions.
Mr. Parker William* wont to somo
Pains to show the methods by whloh
the various party candidates are selected. There wa* a Socialist candl-
didate and a Conservative candidate
nominated for Ottawa fry conventions of the respective parties. The
Liberals had had no convention, but
Mr. Smith had the previous day declared himself tho Liberal candidate.
Mr. Williams'therefore, wanted to
know whether the Liberal pariy was
running Ralph Smith, or was Ralph
Smith runnini toe Liberal party?
Smith had stated that the C. P. R.
and the Grand Trunk Pacific had
eaoh ft "boby"—the Conservative and
Liberal partlea—and would doubtless
see that they wero supplied with the,
necessary campaign funds. The Socialist parly was the "boby" of no
corporation and need not look for
support from any such source. He
therefore appealed for financial contributions from the working men ol
I—dv smith.
Mr. J. H. Hawthornthwaite, the
Soclallat candidate, referring to
SmltlVs Nanaimo meeting, charnoter-
laed It s»" a samplo of political cowardice and mcadac'lv. Th* strained
effort to avoid giving aay offence to
th* Soclallat* wa* In marked    eon-
Pleasant Social Gathering In Mr. W.
G. -Fraser's Now Premises,
Mr. and Mrs. W. G. Fraser should
never feel tho cold in thoir new premises on First Avenuo. If thero is
anything in a houso warming (and,
of course, there is a wholo lot), spoclal ventilators will bo required to
get the temnoraturo down to a point
at all tolerable.
At chia time of writing, Mr. Fraser has not moved into the now premises. Tho idea. Tho idea moving his ledy assistants in and getting up the house-warming was to
Bccure U"" warm atmosphere of
home which Is proper for a moving
in. AndV-U-y got tho atanosphere
all right. Ther*" was a large party
of frionds present, and with perfect
arrangements, a most enjoyable
evening was spont.
The ladies, of courso, saw to it
that thero was enough of amusement
which equally of course, took the
form of Indulgence in what the young
reporter with his future to make,
generally describes as the terpolch-
oroan nrt but which the quill-drivers past their first blush simply designate ns dancing. Mr. Job Smith
was at tho piano and Mr. Wm. Al-
llstor, helped liy Mr. Conlin, touched tho strings of the violin, and to
their excellent music os many young
folks as could find place' oh the floor
footed it right merrily and joyously.
To givo. a little woight and balance
to the party tho girls had invitod a
fow old "stiffs," and for these provision had been mndo in the shape
of a card room. Howovor, the editor was specially requested to refrain
from mentioning the nemos of the
card-players and he could not do oth
er than give his promise.
Refreshments wore provided and tho
houso was warmed from ond to end
and from floor to roof. It was left
warm with tho best wishes of all
present for the success and prosperity of Mr. and Mrs. Fraser.
Mr. Fraser's now premises will presont a handsome appearance when
finished and painted. Inside, both
storo nnd dwelling rooms are finished
In first class stylo. With tho exception of the work-room the houso is
plastered throughout, and doors and
windows and fittings are all of the
very best material. Mayor Nicholson has hod the contract In hand
arid the work would be a credit to
any contractor.

Toronto, Ont., Aug. 0. -The Ontario Government has notified Premier McBride to draw on the Provincial Treasury to the amount of 15,-
000 toward tho relief ol tho B.C. flro
trust with the bold way ln which he
made aU kinds ol charges against tho,
Tories. Smith was not half the enemy ol th* C.P.lt. that he would like
ts be believed. He (Ur. Hawthornthwaite) had done all that his potitlon In Ul* local log—lat—* woukl
permit- to prevent Smith carrying „
bill through nt Ottawa that would
exempt the E. _ N. land grant from
taxation for ever. Smith talked a-
bout the tax exemption of 0. P. R,
lend oa the prairie, but had failed
to mention that the Interpretation
whloh ao honolltcd the C.P.R. wa*
mndo by vote of himself and the Liberal party.
' Smith had voted against „ motion
to prevent the employment ol Asiatics on the Grand Trunk paclflo and
excused himself by saying that it
was unfair because It did not apply
io the C. P. R. If Smith wu honest, instead of putting up »uch a
transparent plea, he should have
been the man to propose it, not only
aa a condition of the enormous G.
T. P. subddles, but also ol every
other that we* granted by the Houso
A few years ago Mr. Smith had
Mated that th* proper position for
a labor representative was to get
Jietween the two old partlea and
anuccKc all that could he got from
both ol them. Yesterday he had
stated that the proper position ws*
to hitch up to th* Liberal party.

Longbout, ia which tlio Indian described Hayes, the Marathon win- *

to the extreme heat.   Longboat bled at tho mouth and nose contin- •

It is very probable that tho local
Iootball club will open out the season with a Iriendly fixture with Nanaimo United, their old rivals, and
this year's champions of tho Province. The officials ot both clubs,
are agreed that two friendly encounters would bo tho vory bost wny In

tho fighting strength of the two

The action of the council on Wednesday evening will be endorsed, and
heartily endorsed, by every man and
.woman, in the town. There is no
doubt about it that instant i
uros of relief are called for,, by the
Fernie disaster. The full tale of the
calamity has not yet been told. We
know that the town has been wiped
out; that all that is left of it is s
blackened patch of smouldering, ruin.
We oan approximately reckon up the
loas in property. But a* yet the
loss of life is not known with nny
exactness. Ths dislocation of the
telogj-aph servioe has made it difficult to get news of any kind, and
no authentic or official statement of
the exact number of lives lost hss
besn published.
What we do know, however, Is terrible enough, and there is more to
be feared. Thousands of people have
been located in a mass In towns
where the ordinary eanitary condition* were none too good. The weather is hot and the utmost precautions will have to be taken to prevent the occurrence of even a worse
disaster than the desolating flre.
Even If an outbreak of disease is

ROME, Aug. 4.—Felix Savaingi, a

considerable excitement at the Vatican this morning and resulted 11—illy in his expulsion from the Vatican
He desired the redress of certain
wrongs which he declared he had suffered at the hands of the Vatican.
An audience was denied, the authorities considering that the man's
claim did not Justify a hearing.
This morning Savigny placed himself at Rafael's lodge, a point where
the pope was expected to pass. When
the pontiff approached the gendarmee
asked the priest to move on. This
the man refused to do and he began
to shout and gesticulate In threatening manner, causing considerable
al-rm among a number of pilgrims,
who had just been received by the
holy father. The gendarmes wore
obliged to use force In order to get
Savigny from ths spot. He was
turned over to the police. The Pope
expressed his regret at the incident.

SALT LAKE, Utah, Aug. 6.- A
special from Ogden, says Edward H.
Harriman, who passed through Ogden late yesterday on his way to
Oregon, denied that there was any
truth in the report that he had or
would obtain control of the Gould
railroad properties. "I have,
courso, heard the rumors," ho sal'
"but-thero is nothing In thom."
"It Is true," he added, "that recently the system which I now control, obligated itself to meet certain Indebtedness of the Gould properties, but personally I was only an
incident to the transaction. There
is nothing in tho report that I am
to moot representatives of the Gould
railroad' holdings in Salt Lake 'or
any other place to discuss the matter."
Talking of the political situation,
Mr. Harriman said. "The election of
Mr. Taft or Mr. Bryan would not in
tho least affect tho railroads of the
country becauso the policies of tho
Republican and Democratic parties ln
the prosecution of railroads which
violate the law aro identical."
