Its Successful Organisation.
Canada has, in her mountain regions, one of tho most valuable ol her
ninny resources and assets. In these
mountains mil ure presents her grandest forms—nl forest, ol stream, of lake,
of oiivo, of crag, ol glacier, uf high
snow white mountain peaks which
afford to humanity n world's playground nnd promote the grandest and
noblest and most health-giving of
human aspirations, These mountains
are not known or visited to the extent
they should be. Eastern Canadians
and Americans go to Switzerland to
seo inferior mountain scenery to what
they hnve in their own country uud
yet ilu nut know it.
It waa with n view to spreading information about these mountains,
attracting to them tourists and mountaineers from all parts, studying the
scientific phases oi mountains mid
glaciers that the idea of organising a
Canadian Alpine Club was born.
The Alpine Clubs uf Switzerland and
America have done much to popularise
mountain resorts, and distribute iufcr-
rrjation concerning them, It was felt
that Canada, with a grander Alpine
lield than all thc rest, should show a
patriotic interest in her own mountains, and hence the moveniont to
organise 11 national club making the
mountains ol Canada its special lield.
Thc credit oi the conception is probably due to A. 0. Wheeler, who bus
been in charge of the topographical
survey of the mountains lor some
years, and bus come to be one of tho
greatest Alflinc enthusiasts ol Canada,
lu Rev. Dr. Herdmun and Rev. Dean
Paget, lie met kindred spirits,who have
made several Important ascents.and arc
true lovers of the mountains. Tom
Wilson, of limilf, the pioneer of our
mountaineers, touk op the idea. Mrs.
Parker of Winnipeg, another enthusiast was found. Professor Coleman, of
Toronto University, who mndo one of
the most important expeditions into
the Rocky Mountains some years ago.
lent bin aid, and thc result was the
meeting at Winnipeg, on March 27tl
and 28th, of the mountaineers who
of Canada.
By way of lending a practical interest to tlie scheme the walls of the
assembly room in the Y. M. C. A.
building at Winnipeg were covered
with enlarged magnificent photographs of the Selkirk and Rocky
Mountains taken by -Mr. Wheeler.
Prominent in the exhibition was 11
complete series of views of
The series embraced several beautiful
photographs of the interior. Mr.
Wheeler's picture of Lookout Point at
the caves particularly attracted attention and was generally admitted to be
one ot the linest scenic photographs
ever shown in Canada. E, A. Hug-
gen, of Rcvelstuke, wus told off to look
after this feature of the exhibit.

The Winnipeg street car strike
was a forcible instance of tlie necessity of the adoption by the Dominion Parliament of a measure of
compulsory arbitration in labor
disputes. Sir William Mulock, Ibe
late Minister of Labor, introduced
such legislation, but it was opposed
by the labor unions, and, as we
believe, most unju-titialy. Strikes
an-.i lock-out* affect the community
as a whole, and the public interest
is entitled to the due protection of
the Government. Strikes and lockouts make for lawlessness, national
waste, and productive loss. They
are unnecessary, and a relic of
industrial barbarism. In the i ase
of the Winnipeg street ear strike,
President McKenzie, sitting in his
office at Toronto, hundreds of miles
distant from the scene of the trouble
was responsible lor the most disgraceful acts ever win, -,1 in it
Canadian city. We ki I ng
of the merits of the matti r- in
dispute, but we do know tl il the
strikin-.' employes offered lo refer
their en-,- entirely lo arbitratioi
President McKenzie and the Street
Railway Company refused such a
fair prop isition, and hem • I -
the cause uf the trouble.
Tbe Street Railway Company
exist; by reason ol a franchise conferred, on it by the citizens of
Winnipeg^.'! franchise so valuable
that tbe company's Bbares ha*e
risen in value from pur of ^ 1.00 to
$3.00 or fl.Oi. The Streot Railway
C,,ii,puny has prospered as the
result of the growth of the city and
the owners have had the value of
their investment- enormously increased. Un the other hand the
fame growth has increased tin-
value ol house properly, and rei *.-
arc-steadily increasing. Trices for
products arc increasing also, ami
the company's employes as a body
felt that on current wages Umy
could barely keep their families,
They asked to share in the corn-
pan j's prosperity by an increase
in their pay. The sympathy shown I
by the citizens of Winnipeg ivllli
the striking employes showed they
believed tlie men to he right and
tin- fact Ihnl the company refused
arbitration was n protly strong indication that they knew ihey wci
getting away will, something that
did nol belong lo tin-in, and that
they mighl have to forego, in tbe
event oi a hearing before u fair
tribunal, With compulsory arbitration Ihere could have been no
strike accompanied by public in
convenience, the calling out of the
militia, and thy outrage on public
decency thai accompanied it.
Until the principle ol compulsory
arbitration of labor disputes is
recognised the same scenes muy be
re-enacted in any city in Canada,
Ralph Connor Speaks Wholesome Truths.
Referring to strike troubles Rev. C.
W. Gordon (Ralph Connor) said :
" Is this the result ol twenty centuries ol Christian teaching that men
will fall upon each other like beasts
and club and butter each otlioi until
the city is plunged into n c ndilion so
alarming that it has to bo placed under martial law?
" Sell-preservation may lie the lirst
law of nature, but Ihe attitude of the
other man must always be respected.
When selfishness and greed assort
themselves in the hearts of men, it is
our duty to tukc an active interest in
tho matter, and it is now lime for all
true men to rise superior to the claims
ot mere partisanship and do their
utmost to restore tranquility."
(By nn Onlookor.l
A person looking on the Winnipeg
street car strike, and reading the
accounts of it sent out by the Assuci-
uted Press, cmild not recognise that
the scenes were one and tho sume.
The telegraphed reports ol the Aaso-
atod l'resi were grossly exaggerated.
There was no rowdyism or lawlessness
that should ,not have been perfectly
controlled by nn efficient police force,
headed by n cool-headed and unprejudiced mayor. Thero was not the
slightest necessity for calling out the
militia, ordering them to load with
bull cartridge to lire on the citizens of
Winnipeg, fixing havonets to transfix
them, or placing a loaded Maxim gun
on tlie streets oi Canada's great central metropolis. These scenes were a
lasting disgrace to the administration
of Winnipeg's chief magistrate, Mayor
Sharpe, uud a gross abuse of tlie law.
What are the (acts? The city ol
Winnipeg is unfortunately crowded
with unemployed whole curiosity was
naturally aroused by such an even! as
a street car strike, aid who congregated on the streets for want of something better to do. With a few exceptions these people took no band in
auy trouble. In a crowd ol this kind
there are always a lew who lose their
heads and these lew made what trouble there washy cutting the tiolley
ropes, throwing some stones and mud,
and in one case trying to set lire to a
ear left on the streets. These men
could easily have been gathered in by
the police. As [or the striker-, they
were   most   orderly.     They  Iliad"
demonstration!,reiorted to no violence

kept out ol the way,    On tl ther
hand the street car company were re-
ipontible lor icti winch at-,,used pubic indignation. They imported thugs

A correspondent writes I "In the
interests of the Spurting Club, I think
it. nly right to mention that the season for lifting traps slinuld be mentioned, 1 believe it oloses on the 1st
April, 1 know that there wns n party
who lelt their traps out ad Inst summer as the weather got too Bolt for
travelling, and of course tbey must
have killed a lot of marten which bad
young, 1 can say that I got one marten with live young on 2(itli March,
nud 1 lifted my traps. This is an exceptional case but trappers should be
made to lift their traps on the stated
time nr be lined. 1 know there nre a
lot who think they are at liberty to
leave their traps inter, as it is in tho
mountains, but this should he stopped.
It is necessary to lake this iiji nnd let
them know that there arc people
watohing them."

Mr. David's nephew, a boy of 12,under
thc same pretext. Upon their arrival
in New York, Mr. Allow and his
brother, who was known in British
Columbia as an orphan named Mirza,
unfolded their plan of railing money
Irom thc charitable by representing
the three young men as destitute
Armenian orphans, etc., and used
threats ol murder il Mr. David did not
fall in line and act his part. Mr.
David claims that Day's brother,
Mirza, has a murderer's record in
Botli Day and Mirza threa'cned Mr
David with a dagger il he dared lo
frustrate or disclose their scheme.
Since Day lelt British Columbia lie
got Mirzn and Mr. David's nephew to
join him in California and, as far as
Mr. David has been able to ascertain,
he placed the hoy in the home of a Mr.
McCoon, an American millionaire, in
Jackson, California.
Later particulars ol Peter Allow, the
Persian rug denier, alius, Rev, .1. A.
Day, D. 1)., alias Rev. Peter Solyman,
D. D., show during the time lie wns at
college be speedily proved he was nior
ally'bid and ol a particularly violent
disposition, During this time a relative and great friend of Allow's killed
a Presbyterian preacher and was com
pelled to flee lor his life. Allow wns
soon alter expelled Irom college on
account ol his bad behavior and
It wai nut lung alter that Allow
started upon his life ol trawl and
crime. He went to the United Slitti.s,
and landed in Seattle in the year 1903
and commenced work as Rev. Peter
Solyman, D. D., alleging he had an
orphanage lor which be was collecting
He traveled east gathering in hundreds of dollars in various places
where he stopped for awhile and everything ran smoothly till he struck the
town ol Pella, Iowa. There while
doing a thriving business his methods
aroused the suspicion ol the Rev. W.
J. Van Kersen, a Presbyterian pastor,
who started an enquiry as to the origin and standing o! Solyman with the
result that the following was received
by him and forwarded to the governor
cl the state ol Iowa who gave it general publicity:
"The young man ol whom you write
is a fraud and an impoiter. In 1903,
Mr. Shedd, whom he mentioned to
you, wrote to me Irom Urumia as
"In a letter "yssterday I received
word ol a man who. has started on a
tour ol the world, regarding whom
you ought to be on your guard. His
name is Petros (Peter) E. M. Shilinion
(Solyman). Ha it from Baz and a
graduate ol the college. His behavior
tince graduation has been such at to
thow that hit character is thoroughly
bad. Unfortunately, he managed, at
some time, to stamp some sheets of
paper with the college seal, and no
doubt he will make use ol them. He
is a Neitorian and not an Armenian.
"Two daya before your letter was
received I received a postal card from
Mr. Shedd, who has just returned
Irom Urumia for a furlough in the
United ttatei, in which he says:
"II you ahould have any inquiries
regarding a Syrian whose present
name it Peter Allow, Council Bluffs,
Iowa, he ii the lame as Petros E. D.
Melik Shiliinon (Petros of Baz) and is
thoroughly unprincipled.
"1 may lay in a word that ho is one
ol many who aro preying on the
churches, and the tidings nl whole
success ill duping Christians ill
AniuriilA do omllcst harm in I'ertia."
The Miner lays:—Early lust November Rev. ,1. A. Day,  who  represented
himself as  a   Methodist   missionary
from Macedonia, arrived here, und he
hnd letters Irom Principal Sipprell, of
the Methntllst Columbian college at
New Westminster, and from a number
ul Methodist mlnisteis throughout
the province, lie was warmly received
by Itev. J. I). P. Knox, pastor nl the
Methodist church, its well as by the
members nf the oougregation. Ilo
represented that lie was from Macedonia and lhat. hiV special million wns
tn provide honi s Ior the orphaned
children nl murdered Christians nl
that country who were housed in Ihe
Macedonia orphanage at Ashatn
Hogeu, Macedonia, The greatest de.
tire that he had wus to lind homes fur
the Macedonian nrphuns among Christian peoplo 111 this country so that they
might be brought up among proper
surroundings and good Influences and
grow up into gond men and women
and devout Methodists.
Day was u dark conipluxioned mn ii
ul 35, with an earnest and impressive
manlier, and when arrayed in a durk
suit with a white necktie he looked
the part he wus playing. One Sunday ho preached in the Methodist pulpit, nnd bis description of the wrongs
nl the Christians and how ruthlessly
they hud been slaughtered by the infidel Turks, and the awful condition
nl llie orphans, lelt scarcely u dry eye
niniing his auditors, lle explained
thut tho children ranged Irom mere
infants to those who were 11 years of
ago. Those who adopted children under 10 years of age could huvo them
without paying anything, but those
who desired them fr.jiii 10 to 14 years
of age imiBt pay down $50 to provide
Inr transporting theni front Macedonia
to tliis city. In return lor this the
children were to be woll cared for, sent
to Sunday school and chinch regularly, but would perform such service ns
might be desired by those who adopted
theni in the way of bouse and other
rk.    The result wns that n wave uf
Byinpalby swept through the city tor
the unfortunate Macedonian orphan
and Mr. Day lor a time fairly cuined
In a few days he had $500 in Ins
A receipt, which is worded as follows
is all enuh ol  the victims  have  to
show lor the money which   they  ml
To tlie Macedonian Orphanago:
Riw-lnud, Nov. 7, 19011.
This is to certify that 1 have paid
to Rev. J. A. Day, 1). D., the sum of
$50 Iur the purpose o! bringing Serena
Zatotvskl, a Macedonian girl, to my
home, and I promise to be good to her
and send her to the Methodist church
and Sinid-iy school.
This is to certify that I am acquainted with John Doo, who is a
member iu good standing of the Methodist church, and well able to carry
out the above promise.
City Clerk William McQueen, who
hud contributed $50 to the cause ol
the orphans, finally became suspicions
that all was not well in Macedonia,
and he wrote to the authorities of (he
Macedonian orphanage. A reply was
received Irom Salunica, stating that
there was no such institution ns the
Macedonian orphanage, and as lar as
Rev. J. A. Day, D. ])., was concerned,
no individual of that name was known
in all of Macedonia.
Here is the card ho handed round
for the benefit of his intended victims:
"He that giveth to the poor lcndeth
to the Lord"-Prov. 19-17.
In the Kurdistan Orphanage we
have now 342 children from 3 to 15
yean of age who are being educated in
the English language nud Anglo-
Saxon hubits of life, preparatory to
adoption in good Christian homes in
this country.
Subscribe $50 to cover the travelling
expenses of one o! these children or
$25 to support one in the Orphanage
for a whole year. Smaller sunn contributed will be devoted to bring nut
little ones for adoption by kind Christian people. Do something to bring
blessing and happiness to children
who live in daily fear of the Sultan's

visitor, who spent Monday night at
Field. Tlie C. P. 11. grounds were, all

When the royal train was run in on
the side track, nod the rails spiked
down, su there would be no possibility
of other curs lieing tliro.vn in on that
line to strike tbe train. The loyal
citizens uf Field turned out en masse
tn meet tlie train when it pulled in at
6.80 p.m. Some disappointment was
evident in tlio crowd, when it was
learned that the Prince, with some of
his party, lind left the train two miles
west of the town to Bee the Natural
bridge, and would walk in later. When
he did come most ol the people had
gone to their homes, This was tbe
lirst long stop tlie train made since it
