It Is now torty-three years Blnce
Canada became a self-governing nation. There will be some who perhaps may take exception to tbe
claim ot nationality on thc part ol
Canada. Except in name we are a
nation, ln the same sense' that Great
Tlritain is to all intents and purposes governed under republican Institutions. Thc institutions ot republican France are no freer than, if even
they are liberal as, «,-iose ol the Mother Country, which leave us ln Canada to manage our own affairs, a
British viceroy, the Qovernor-Qener-
1.1, being the nominal head of our Institutions; his functions, however,
except under somewhat remote possibilities being of a passive, ornamental rather than of an active restraining character.
♦ e a '
Canada has prospered under the
wise and comprehensive system
planned by the greatest ot all Cana-
disns-the Right. Hon. Sir John A.
Macdonald. During the forty-three
years which have elapsed since the
eld provinces ot Canada Btnrted off
on their own account and united to
them sister dependencies, and have
since acquired the territories that
nre now a portion ot the Dominion,
substantial progress has been made,
trade has materially increased as nas
also population. Particularly has
this been the case since the inauguration of the National Policy in 187.8.
e a a
Previous to that time our neighbors across the border had,made the
Dominion a slaughter market (or
their shoddy goeds. For five years
practically unrestrained, they had
engaged ln war on our Industrial in
slitutions. Mills were idle, and Can.
adians had to seek torelgn countries
to find a market for their labor. It
needed a strong arm to stem the
tide that was flowing against us, and
threatened   to engulf   the Industrial
life of the young country.
Tne man was found in the person
of the genius who laid the foundation
stone of Confederation. The Liberal
party, led by Hon. Alexander Mackenzie and dominated by Hon. Veorge
Brown and his powerful newspaper,
preached free trade or submission to
the. Invaders of our industrial instl- j
tutions, but Sir John Macdonald wa)
returned to power an the 17th ol
September, 1878, and he met the invaders at the border with a fiscal
policy that adequately protected the
Canadian manufacturer. Then Canada took on new life, and shortly
afterwards thc construction of Canada's national hlghwny was-begun.
* • •
The three striking events in Canada's national life were Confederation ln 1867, protection to her Industries, which was inaugurated in
1878, and the completion of the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1886. To
whom was Canada indebted for these])
The answer Is written in the records
of our country—Canada's patriot
statesman,  Sir John A. Macdonald.
a   a   •
The corner-stone ol Confederation
was well and truly laid by Sir John
A. Macdonald .and the patriotic
statesmen who surrounded htm, and
the temple is still in process of construction. Will it realize all .that
was hoped for by the master builder?
That wtIK depend upon Canadians
themselves. They have now learned
the lesson of faith in themselves, .and
all they will have to do Is to continue the work. Patriotism to country and high ideals must be tbe
guiding star. In building up a great
nation on this side ot the Atlantic,
Canadians are not wenkenlug the tie
that hinds them to the Mother Country. Rather are tbey strengthening
tho power of the greatest empire that
the world hus ever known, and on
this forty-third anniversary of Confederation, when joining in the chorus of "The Maple Loaf Forever" let
us not forget we are loyal subjects
of the greatest king who ever sat
upon thc British throne.
chest.   In another miuuto I waB   on  pore trial,  has done much to stem
the tldo of discontent iu India than
could possibly have been cflccted by
rigorous punishment on insufficient
evidence.. That the outrages which
aroused indignation throughout the
civilized world should have provoked
bitter feeling in India itself was Inevitable, and that, under cicumstan-*-
es, a sedition hunt should .have been
marked by some curious features,
either as a result of thc mad zeal
of the hunters or the craft and sub-
tlllty of the hunted, ,wns. perhaps 'unavoidable; hut the high court, in Its
decision, cannot have failed to impress the natlvcB of India with the
fact thnt the course of British jus
tiee is high and pure, and Is not to
be deflected by any feeling, however
natural; that righteous horror and
Indignation must find a victim. Let
us hope, also that before many
months have passed, justice will have
pro.ye.d itself full-armed, and will
have added to this proof that thc
innocent are safe, the equally necessary testimony that thc guilty cannot hope to remain unpunished.

There is good reaBon for Britishers
everywhere to feel proud ot the purity and strength of British justice as
revealed in   the   proceedings   which
havo followed tho convictions which
were   the Immediate   sequel   to the
outrages  ol a   lew months  ago.   Oi
these the most recent was thc,quashing of the Midnapur convictions. Tlaj
police evidence was to the eSect that
a bomb had been found in the house
of  the prisoners.   The police alleged
that the bomb had been tound on a
certain   date.   The house   in   which
the find was made was small,   and
the owner had been under suspicion
for some .time.   After innumerable rer
mands and delays three of the twenty-seven Individuals who were arrcsj*
ed in September last were convicted.
'Ihcn   the   convictions went   to the
High Court at Calcutta, on appeal.
Sifting of the police evidence showed
that the house in   which the   bomb
waB   found     had   teen   thoroughly
searched, and a tight . cordon    bad
been drawn round. it/ for several days
before   tbe    bomb    was discovered.
How the bomb came to be there   is
problematical.   If it was there when
the police-made their search and they
failed to ilnd it, the police were to
blame.   It It was placed in the building—and   it   is easy to conceive of
reasons why it might have been put
there—by the malcontents after   the
cordon   had been   drawn the police
were   to   blame.   If, as   the defence
suggested, it had been put there   by
the police themselves in order to be
used in securing a   conviction,   the
police were still more to blame. The
high court, as has been said, quashed the convictions,   and   commented
upon the conduct and methods of the
prosecution in such scathing   terms
that   the   Lleutcnart-Oovcrnor   was
left with no alternative to suspending the leave of all thc officers concerned nnd ordering a rigorous   in
qulry into the affair.
When regard is had to the extent
to which thc Indians themselves arc
admitted to participation in the governing of the country, how largely
Indian officialdom is drawn from native sources, the credit which belongs to British administration ol
Justice in India is all the greater.
Tho police is largely native, and thc
motives which impelled the prosecution to secure a conviction were not
greatly different from those which
are active among white men in similar circumstances—a desire to please
the "powers that be." But the high
court vindicated justice. The collapse of the Midnapur convictions,
following so closely upon the aaqult-

Germany alone. Yet to this day the
best site in the whole world for sanatoria for the cure of tuberculosis
remains unoccupied. What is still
more strange, this superb site is to
bo found in our own special domain,
which is free for occupation without
rent, ratea or. taxes. I refer, of
coumo, to the ocean. We hear much
of ths blue-water school of imperial
defenee? but no one speaks of tbe
'Jiluo-water cure for the Great Whito
Yet, if the most eminent medical
authorities, of the modern world are
right, the possibility that a consumptive patient will be cured ln an
ocean sanatorium la at least twice f.s
great as if he were sent to the best
sanatorium on land. Dr. Achille Ed-
om, whose classic work on "Tuberculosis et sanatoriums flottants," has
never received the attention it deserved in this country, commands
the enthusiastic support of Dr. Van
Leyden, the most distinguished professor of medicine in the university
of Berlin, who, on this subject, is in
entire accord with the most eminent
members of the medical profession or.1/
the continent. Our own doctors arej
professionally reluctant to commit
themselves on such subjects, but the
editor of the British Medical Journal declared, in an article expounding:
the system, that its working will bo
watched with sympathetic interest by,
the medical profession, and that
there would be no lack of patients it
the terms were not absolutely prohibitive. Winn such a consensus of
approval on the part of the most
distlnguisned medical authorities ln
favor of the blue water cure, how
comes it that at this time of day- a
properly euuipped floating sanatorium is still sought In vain on any of
tbe seven seas?
Tho answer is that what is everybody's business is nobody's business.
Everyone agrees that the scheme is
excellent, but no ono man lias cither
tin! personal  interest  or the inward
fined -f-uartcrs, chance of bad weather
and constant change of climate, was
often prescribed with success when
nil other remedies had failed to effect
tho cure ot consumptives. How much
greater the prospect ol success when
all the disadvantages ol such a voy
age are eliminated and thc patient is
enabled to enjoy all the advantages
of the best sanatoria on land with
life on the deep blue seal It is .proposed to purchase a roomy sailing
ship ot some two thousand tons burden and to refit her completely as a
first-class sanatorium for fifty, consumptive patients, each of whom
would have a separate large and well
ventilated cabin. The deck would be
fitted np for verandah treatment.
{very convenience of the most perfectly equipped land sanatorium, including swimming baths, recreation
rooms, etc., could be provided. The
ship, besides her captain and crow,
would carry a complete hospital
staff of doctors and nurses. She
would be stationed in the neignbor

Oil thc coast of Norway is a small
island called Aarlund, which for almost two years boasted thc peculiar
distinction of being peopled exclus-i
ively by widows. The circumstances
under which this state of affairs was
brought about aro no less curious
than distressing. One spring in thc
early 90's a man arrived on the" island from Haugesund, on thc mainland, with his wife and family to
participate in thc egg gathering. As
he was testing bis ropes on a cliff,
preparatory to commencing a search
for eggs, he happened to make a
false step forward over tbe cliff. He
was instantly killed.
As there had not been a death on
the island since II years before
when a boy was killed by a boulder
from the same cliff, falling on him,
the occurrence naturally cast a
gloom over the small community established there. This consisted ol
some 30 fishermen with their families. As a mark of sympathy anl
respect, all the men determined to
attend the funeral, of thc unforturjite
which was to take place at the cemetery at Haugerund. Durin**- the
proceedings at the burial ground a
tremendous gale arose and when the
men returned to their smack the
storm was at its height.

Another "Sunshine" Feature
This is an entirely new idea, and will especially interest people who reside in natural
gas districts. The gas ring takes the place
of the lower Sunshine fire-pot, thus making
if possible to burn gas in your furnace without
inconvenience. Such is not possible in a
furnace where the ordinary gas log is inserted;
for, should the gas give out) a coal or wood
fire could not be started until the gas pipes
were disconnected.
To provide against sweating in tbe summer
time, Sunshine Furnace is equipped with a
nickelled steel radiator and dome. All
bolts and rivets are nickelled, all rods
ccpper-plated. This special treatment) besides meaning quicker and greater radiation
from the radiator and dome than cold chill
iron could possibly give, acta as protection
for the bolts, rivets and rods from inroads of
gas. When cast iron comes in contact with
our nickelled steel it is coated with our special

Trees and Fruits
In Farm Garden
In laying out a new garden, space
should bo provided alwayB lor trees
aud snrubs. While thc trees arc voryi
small tlu-y will occupy no more
p.round than ordinary vegetables.
Other crops may be planted to within one foot of a row of seediiyg trees,
nnd no injury will be done to either.
But In a few years the trees will
take the moisture from a larger
space. They will also shade the
pround, and this alone will prevent,]
most vegetables from attaining to
perfection of growth. At least eight
fit-t ot extra space should be allow-
i il Inside n windbreak ot trese. At
firpt this space may be filled with vegetables, but later on It Bhould be
merely kept free from weeds.
For the windbreak I would strongly recommend the various willows,
i.nd ash-leaved maple. They both
trow bushy and thick near the
ground, and if the ends oi the branch
is are clipped off, allowing them to
ixtend from two to three feet beyond,
the trunks ot the trees, then an almost solid wall of green will be produced, with a small amount of work.
The clipping should be done in June,
so as to allow the wounded branches
to heal ^before winter sets in. If done
much earlier than June, some trees
afe liable to bleed profusely. Bleeding is to be avoided when possible,
is it materially weakens the tree.
Another reason for recommending the
maple and willow for planting around
the farm garden is the tact that
neither of them send out suckeru.
Trees that grow many suckers
Bhould not tie planted close to a garden, as they will come up like weeds
and give trouble.
Tho common lilac, planted about
one foot apart, will make as tight a
hedge as any. If it is seldom pruned, it will grow very close at the
bottom. This inside is not really
necessary.; Either the willows or the
maples will be sufficient protection
for the garden.
Poplars should bo kept at a respectable dlstanco from tho garden^
They will send out their suckers to a
dlstanco of twenty or thirty feet,
from the main trunk. The suckers
run quite close to the surface of the
ground, drawing sustenance therefrom.
For a largo garden, where grounds
can be laid out for appearance as
wtll as use there are dozens of hardy
trees and shrubs that may be worked
in with good effect. There is a great'
variety to be held in foliugo colors;
and ior winter eflects there is such
variation in the color of bark and
young growth that it is quite possible to make the winter garden pleasing to the eye. Roally beautiful effects may be produced by the introduction of the white spruce, Scotch
pine, blue spruce and some other ev-
ergroen trees that have been tested
and found hardy at the experimental
farms. These take longer to grow
than the deciduous trees, but even]
when they are quite small they add
greatly to the appenrance of tho
garden ioth winter and summer.
Each year a few rows of tree* may
he planted next to the garden. If
the trees are planted three feet
apart each way, they will soon
branch and shade the ground so that
they will need no cultivation. Whilo
they do need it, they can bo cultivated with the garden. It is a good
plan to start tree seeds ln the garden proper, transplanting them to
the wood lots as soon as they are
large enough. Tree seeds are best
planted in the late fall, while cuttings should bo planted very early
in the spring. The cuttings should
be cut from tbe new wood. They
Ehould be eight inches long, and
nearly one-quarter of an inch thick.
Both ends should be cut evenly and
the slip set deeply in the ground,
leaving only one or two buds exposed. Most kinds of poplars and willows grow readily from cuttings.
Strawberries should be grown more
than they are. To be sure somo ot
the plants may winter-kill at times,
but as a rule a good supply can be
easily grown in every garden. Tbe
ground for strawberries should be
prepared much as for raspberries.
My experience has been that they
stand exposure in winter better when
planted on clay soil, than they do
on sandy soil. If the slope of the
ground is towards tho north, the
spring sunshine does not thaw the
plants out bo quickly, and they are
less likely to be injured by heavy
froEts. Strawberries need clean cultivation, and should be well covered
with clean wheat straw In winter.
Thc covering should be left on until
the ground is thawed out under it.
Then it should foe removed gradually.
Hardy apples ure grown now   suc

Lord Milner on
Empire Defence
London, June 26.—The Imperial defence conference opens on Monday
noxt, and Lord Milner, speaking on
tho subject at thc Compatriots' club
dinner Thursday night observed that
the dominions overseas meant business and thc more courageous and
morq comprehensive thc , proposals
made by tho home government the
more likely they would be to succeed. To each dominion overseas
must be assigned some vitally important benefit and function in a general scheme of defence.
Lieut-Colonel Denison, ot Toronto
speaking as the guest of the club,
in responding to the toast of his
health, spoke of imperial defence,
and said that Canada felt that tliq>;
time had come for something to be
done. He thought Canada Bhould be
represented In the front lino of battle with thc finest ships that could
be built. If Canada could not build
Dreadnaughts now, she could pay for
them. She could better afford to
double her debt than to run the risk
of seeing the Euipiro go under. Canada Bhould also train a naval reserve of ten thousand men. Canadians were far in advance of their
politicians who were afraid of their
own shadow. Thc Canadian navy
would be popular with professional
politicians, for it would give them
great patronage control.
Lord Milner said: If the conference
ends in a fizzle, as other conferences
have done, or though resulting in
practical proposals yet nothing pracj
tical Is done, it will not be because',
the people are not willing and earnest, but because their rulers are incapable of devising or agreeing on
means to give effect to this popular
desire. It is for tbe statesmen of
tho Motherland to show the way.
The problem requires very sympathetic and well instructed handling,
for behiod the unanimity of spirit of
the dominions, which is so impressive, Uo many local differences anil
different attitudes, and above all is
the supreme necessity of remembering that this problem concerns a
number of independent states, controlling, their own destiny, Any
scheme to be successful must be devised on lines not only acceptable to
them now, but airing which we can
continue to march together in fu-j
ture; but no scheme will be adequate
to thc circumstances of the time, or
worthy of the spirit shown by the
dominions unless it assigns to each
of them important and substantial
functions in a general plan of imperial defence.
The time has come ior comprehensive and courageous proposals from
tho imperial government. It is not
as it wc were asking thc dominions
to take up a part of the imperial
burden. It is n part of thc imperial
burden. It is they who aro ottering
to do lt. The initiative is entirely
theirs, lt is not for thc relief oi
British burdens. Wc are prepared tq
carry our present burden, and an even heavier one. It is tor tho greater
security and dignity of the empire as
a wholo which Is their concern, Just
as much as ours. They must fed
that they arc doing something worth
doing and rendering a service to thc
empire us a whole, 'this is thc dc-
circ of the dominions themselves,
and the Inst thing,that would meet
their approval would be to suggest
though it might be only out ot con
sideration fov them, that they, undertake so petty und altogether trifling
duties and be treated as childron to
tc amused with mere show, whilo all
the real work is left to the United
Kingdom. Discussion may modify
any proposals bo that tberc would
be no vestigo of dictation. In pro
posing them nobody dreams of Imposing—indeed it would be quite impossible to impose any -duty upon
the dominions from, without. Nothing can be exacted from any of them
unless it commends itself to tbe free
judgment of its people. Some of
the dominions may not accept the
role proposed to them in any common scheme ot imperial defence,
though I think it unlikely, but the
British government will have done
its duty by giving a clear and unmistakable lead. It must be left to
those men in each dominion who are
in sympathy with the imperial idea
to see to it that no petty objections,
no narrow particularism or anti^-iat-
ed prejudice, above all no local party bickerings, are allowed to prevent
their country from taking an honorable part in upholding the security
of and prestige of tho British empire.
Lord Milncr's speech attracts much
attention. The feeling here Is widespread that Lord Milner was right
when he said that the movement in
the British dominions was no passing ctiullition of patriotic sentiment,
but a popular movement of unmis-
takeable earnostneas in favor of such
a combination throughout the empire ns would remove any foreign
menace to the nation,

What is the Weight
Of the Large Cake of White Swan Soap Shown
in the Ladysmith Hardware Co's Window? f|
Valuable Prizes Given Away FREE
In order to further introduce WHITE SWAN SOAP and WHITE SWAN WASHING POWDER into every home we have planned a most interesting contest. All that
is necessary for you to do is put the weight of the large cake of White Swan Soap down
on a piece of paper, attach a White Swan Soap or Washing Powder Coupon to it, and
send or mail it to the White Swan Soap Contest, care of Ladysmith Hardware Company.
To Solve this problem, the best way to do it is to take an ordinary bar of White
Swan Soap, measure its size, and get its weight; The size of the large cake is 4 ft.
2 and $ in. long; 2 feet 10 in. high by 1 foot' 1 in. wide. How much does it weigh?
In order to get the correct weight we have arranged to have the large cake cut up
in slabs in the window and weighed before the public.  Should any person desire to
come in and superintend the weighing, they are at liberty to do so, as the prizes will bS*
awarded to the persons whose answers come nearest to the weight as shown by the
scaie3, this being considered correct.
Remember all answers must be accompanied by a White Swan Soap or Washing
Powder Coupon.
Should there be more than one correct answer, or nearest correct answer, they will
be put in a box and drawn for, the first one out being considered the winner, and so on.
Here is the List of Prizes:
For Prizes we will give a Ladies' Handsome Fifteen-Jeweled Gold Watch, valued at $20.00
To the Second, a Beautiful Eight-Day Clock, valued at  10.00
To the Third, a Lovely Silver Baking Dish, valued at     5.00
And to the Next 5 we will give a Genuine 14 Karat Gold Point Fountain Pen, value   3.00
. Remember that the decision of the manufacturers of WHITE SWAN SOAP, (B. C.
SOAP WORKS, Victoria), will be final and binding; contestants entering this contest

Improvement in
Mining Industry
Rossland's mining interests arc
agaio looking up in a most encour-
again looking up in a most encour-
cidedly better times is considerably
Ono of thc most encouraging   features is thc announcement made   by
tho directors oi thc Lo Hoi Mining
Co.   that thc   (unds needed   (or (he
carrying on the plan of development
of tho lower Icvols of the mino  have
been raised, and it is further stated
(hut work will be resumed on July
1st.   With   this   undoubtedly    great j
mine once more In operation,   there i
will bo an increase in thc number af |
men   employed und a betterment   ol
conditions generally.   The Lo Rol   tu
an important factor in our prosporii'
ty   and tho   absence   of its payroll;
since thc mine closed down tn March;
bus been seriously felt. '
Another mutter that will aid the
camp materially Is thc promised resumption of won't on tho Mascot.
Thc announcement is mado in a lead'
ing oastern paper tn Its flnuuclul columns that thc(Oranby interests havtj
secured tho Mascot claim and that
development will bo Immediately com
inenced. If the results of tho Initial
work warrant it, aB much ns $350,000
is avallablo for development. Thc
Mascot is located on the south-easterly slope of Columbia and Kootonay mountain and has .been extensively developed. Values of as high as
$40 were tound in tho ore. On the
surface the vein Is from six to ton
feet wide. It is thought that the
Mascot c an be made to pay now
with the cost of freight and treatment rates lowered considerably from
what they wero when the Mascot was
being operated ten years ago. It is
very probable that the development
of the Mascot will result ln adding
another large producing mine to  the
list'in the Rossland camp.
Thc Centre Star group of the Consolidated Co. is steadily increasing
thc area of its development. The explorations are being efltended on the
Enterprise to a point nearly 4,000
feet east of. the main shaft,' There is
a million dollar ore shoot on thc
ninth level of the War Eagle and the
downward continuation of the same
shoot has been found on thc tenth
level. On the surface of the Centre
Star there has been found a new
ledge three hundred feet In length
carrying ore of a high grade. The
sixteenth levci is looking remarkably,
well, From thc manner in which tho
ore shoots arc being found and the
incroascd area that is being operated
it is palpable that the Centre Star
group wilt from lime to time in
crease its working forces, and it is
within the range of pwHiWlltlcs thai,
within a reasonable period It will b*o
giving employment to 1,000 mon —
Rossland Miner.
