Great credit is due to both teachers
nnd children ol Bt Peter's Church
Sunday School I'ur the careful manner
in which the programme at Friday's
entertainment wns arranged, The
opening piece was a very pretty drill
by little girls, dressed in white, currying boquets of (lowers, which showed
very careful training by Miss Hobbs,
MitS Johns, who is a new resident in
town, made a decided hit in her very
pretty Irish step-daneo and the audience wore not satisfied until she bud
given an encore twice.
The piano duet by Frances Liiwsnn,
mid Miss Hall wits much appreciated,
nnd Muriel Porter who assisted at tho
candy stall looked very pretty in a
Japanese eostume.
The conjuring tricks by Mr. Humphries were very amusing and caused
much laughter when the secrets and
mysteries were explained.

The administration ol  the public
lands within the Dominion Railway
Belt in British Columbia is must unsatisfactory, and is not likely to be-
como better under an idiotic system
that centi'iiliscs at   Ottawa,  nearly
three thousand   miles  distant,  the
details of laud settlement, concerning
which central ollieials know nolliing
and cure less.    The departments at
Ottawa want n thorough organisation
on business lines by which the great
business of the state will be conducted
with the promptitude and efficiency
that marks a great and up-to-date business organisation.   The object ol government is to meet tlie requirements
ol the public, und added to an up-to-
date administrative department there
should hn local control which would
have local knuwledge of requirements.
As matters stand a man applies for a
piece of Dominion laud to setlle oil.
Immediately ho goes to the land nilice
he is met with all surls ol objections
as tu why ho cannot have that land
Nuw the government proloss to wish
to encourage settlement, and we venture to say that in the North-west
they must have a different system
from what they have in British Columbia or they would get nobody on
tbo land at all,    The  business  nnd
duty of a government department
should be to facilitate bind settlement
instead ol discouraging it.   Here is an
example from actual observation of a
visit by  an intending  settler to a
Dominion Government laud olliee:
" Intending Settler—I want to take
up a section (giving the definition).
Agent—You can't hnve it.
Intending Settler—Wliy?
Agent—Somebody else bos applied
lor it.
Intending Settler—Well there is
thnl piece (pointing to the map), I'll
take that instead.
Ageni—Oil ymi can't have that
either.   It is not surveyed,
intending Settler—Well here is another piece.   Can I have that?
Agent—No. you can't. Thnt. land
is in a timber berth and we can'! deal
with it."
And tliis is the sort of idiotic nonsense that goes on day after day in a
Dominion Government department
that i- lupposed to facilitate tlie settlement ol the laud, and is maintained
lor that purpose, Now the Agent in
of tbe office Is not to blame,
menl under timber leases, or as soon
as timbor is removed that land should
be thrown open for settlement provided sufficient precautions nre taken to
ivuid Ihe spread of fire to standing
timber, It is shameful the wny in
whioh the timber lias been removed
on which timber dues not exist,
Thia is a ieature of public policy
demanding immediate attention. We
are satisfied lion. Frank Oliver, Minister ul the Interior, is imxiuue to do
the right tiling, and to put bis department in good shape, but be is either
ignorant of conditions out here or is
surrounded by ollieials who insist on
hiving their own wny irrespective of
the public interest, nnd whose nhjec
tiuns tu belter methods he bus nut the
force of character to break down. He
should take two or three weeks in
liritish Columbia and investigate
these conditions for himsell, and if be
is the 111:111 we take him tu he tho
causes ol complaint would bo immediately remedied.

One ol  the great obstacles to the
settlement of British Columbia is the
extensive Indian reserves ninde without rhyme or reason.   These reserves
are mainly unoccupied.    There are
only 25,000 Indians in British Columbia and  for them 10110 reservations
have been made, or a reserve ul thousands of acres to every 25 Indians.
The  Okanagan -Valley   particularly
sutlers bom this senseless policy. The
Indian should not be entitled to any
more land hy way of reserves than he
requires.    Many of these Indian Reserves should he opened up to settlement entirely, while others should he
curtailed to meet tbe requirements ul
the Indians living on  them.    Mr.
Duncan Ross, M. P., particularly baa
ii  constituency  much   interested in
this  question, and  we  hope be will
ventilate it on thc lloor of  the Commons. ■

It is a matter of regret that thn new
Liberal cabinet in England lms adopted a distinctly anti-Imperial policy
which may lead to the dismemberment of the Empire. Canada, by hor
preferential tariff to the mother country, set an example which, it wns
hoped, would find some reciprocity in
Britain and the other Colonies. Chani-
beriain was the one 11^11 who put
lorward an imperial policy calculated
to weld the Empire together by follow
ing up the work Canada hud done.
His policy was turned down in the
late British elections und the scnti
ment ol the Little Englimler prevailed. Nothing has done B0 much to
weaken the ties between Britain uiul
her Colonies as the new policy nf the
Bannerman government, nnd if persisted in it ii lull of danger lor tin-
future. Chamberlain's ideas are undoubtedly right but hi- i- ahead ol his
time, and spoiled his influence by his
breach ol faith with tho liritish people
over South Africa.   It Is probable the charge

Good for Making Gas.
There in nn invention by \V. H
Brooks, an Australian, for making
clean gas from wood. Any wood
will answer the purpose, but the
harder the wood the better the
resulting charcoal, a by-product of
the process that can be tt6ed as
fuel for a "producer" gas plant, so
that by this combination the Bame
material is used twice over, and
approximately doubles the engine
power obtained from each ton of
wood retorted, and consii|Ucntly
halves the cost per 1,000 c. f. The
gaseB obtained from the two processes are of different value; the
wood gas is a lixed gas of ,'(9'i British thermal units value, can be
used for lighting (with incandescent mantels) heating, cooking and
power. The "producer" gas made
from the resulting charcoal and
steam is a water gas that cannot
he carried far and its value for
power is ISO b.t.ti.
By the new process, double the
quantity of gas can be obtained
from one ton of retorted wood than
from the same quantity of coal.
While one ton of coal may yield
Irom 8,000 to 12,000 c. f. of gas,
tho same weight ol wood will give
from 15,000 to 30,000 c.f. according
to the temperature at which it is
distilled, say from 1,500 to 2,300
degrees Fahrenheit, These results
are mainly obtained by passing Ihe
gases through a specially designed
circulating retort. Iron retortB
could not last long under the above
temperature, but good tire clay gas
retorts, burnt at a temperature of
o,u00 degrees F. are cheap and very-
The wood gas distilled at a temperature of about 2,000 degrees F.
and purified by this process, is perfectly free from tar or carbon,
practically as clean as steam.
When used to drive gas engines
there are no carbon troubles with
the valves, as with coal gas. These
statements have all been proved by
a plant erected to drive a 40-h.p.
gas engine, at a recent exhibition
by the Adelaide Chambers of Manufacturers, which operated a complete small mining plant there, to
the satisfaction of the exhibitors.
It has been proved that the charcoal by this process with 15 per
cent, of water added is a superior
fuel to ordinary gas coke, and gave
8 per cent, more power off the same
engine. The approximate cost of
wood fuel per h.p. hour in Australia
is estimated to bo about l.l cents.
Fuel for wood gits costs i| cents, for
the combined wood and producer
gas | cent per horse power hour,
where the cost ol wood does not
exceed $2,50 per ton. On mines
working with saline water, the exhaust gases from the engine would
condense the water free of fuel
charges. It is claimed that for
electrical purposes it is as cheap,
or cheaper than water power, and
can be used where water falls are
unknown. By this process the
Canadian forest settler can in
winter, with a sawmill, turn his
valuable timber into cash, and with
the waste wood make gas for his
engine, and light and warm his
house and out-buildings, at a nominal cobI. It has been pruvod by n
Carsatelli indicator that there is
only 5 per cent, difference in favor
pf coal gas ovor this wood gas in
actual power obtained from the
Bamo engine, tiara engines are last
replacing steam engines all over
the world, and whore wood is
abundant, manufacturers have ut
their door the cheapest power
known, and thus can compete on
the most favorable terms against
cheap European labor and cheap
Anothor hunch of tho eastern
catalogues have arrived in tho city
and poff that t||o Bummer suasun
|h on when now huts, dresses, etc.,
will bu in order, Iur the Indies and
children, an effort should bu made
by the local merchant to niiike his
prices suit the purses of all classes
of people who are tempted to patronize the eastern catalogue grafter
and the people in turn,should use
the leaves of Mr. Catalogue man's
book to cover up the tender plants,
and protect, them from the frosts
that usually occur at this season of
the year. No necessity to look
over tho catalogue at all, just gaze
on tho beautiful windows in all the
dry goods merchants' stores, and
see samples of goods that the eastern catalogue man cannot possibly
duplicate for the price, then the
happy condition also presents itself
that you have patronized local
markets and kept your money at
home, just where it belongs. We
have taken the liberty of comparing some of the eastern prices with
the local ones and are prepared to
candidly say, we cannot see any
necessity at all for.leavingour own
city to make purchases in the East.
Our merchants have the same
styles, same designs, identical out-
tits as tho big departmental store
in Toronto and Montreal and
allowing for postage, freight or express llie cost exactly the same, or
in fact a shade in favor of the local
man. 'Tis true, the local merchant
may not have the immense stock
to select from the eastern man has
and no wonder at that. He don't
get the encouragement from the
citizens to carry it, and if the proper disposition was shown him on
the part of the townsmen, there is
not a merchant in the city but
would double or triple his stock,
and taking another view of the
subject, if we compared the population of our city and surroundings
with Toronto, Montreal and their
surroundings, and make an honest
comparison of the circumstances,
it would be found New Westminster merchants carried a considerably larger stock than the eastern
man, and with just as great a
variety to select from. At any rate
give the local man the preference
by all means.
Rise in Price of Furs Next
At the London sales White foxes,
for example, realised an increase of
80 per cent.; American and Canadian sables made an advance of
from 60 to 70 per cent.; minx rose
by about 25 per cent.; and Silver
foxes sold at a good figure. A
string of 111 skins of martin realised £9 each, another string of 111
£8 16s. each; 354 went at £6 14s,
each, 134 fetched 41 4s. each, and
378 obtained £3 lis. each. A very
tine lot of white foxes realised an
average of £3 6s. (id., and nearly
2,000 went at 39s. to 40s, each.
Red foxes fetched as much as £2
10s. each, nnd £1 each wns paid
for minx
Silver fox skins, the first lot
fetched £86 each; a single skin
realised £180; and others went as
follows: Three al £52 each; three
at £110 each; four at £110 each;
three singles at £100 each; a single
at £225; twu at £210 each; four at
£100 each; a single at H140. two at
£ 125 each; nnd three others at
The brisk bidding nil through
goes to indicate that owing tu the
rush Iur furs during ihis winter
merchants' reserves have been
rutty well cleared out, and that
skins will continue in lirst favor
next winter, The advances go to
show, first, that the better class of
furs are becoming source, and,
secondly, that tho particular skins
referred to aro expected to lend the
way in the fashion for next winter.
These sales fix the prices for
next seasun for everybody. There
will be a general rise in prices
throughout this country and elsewhere. One of the most fashionable
furs next season will bo moleskin,
for which there has already been
an advance in price of about 50
per cent.

Catholic Church.
Editor Maii.-Heiiai.ii.
When reading the report ol Rev,
Mr. Gilder's sermon in the Maii.-
Hkrai.ii of April 14th, we were rntlier
surprised at the false statements in it
regarding Princess Ena's conversion.
Fur tlie benelit of those who wish to
know the truth, I feel obliged to contradict the Rev, gentleman's false
ln the lirst place, Princess Ena became a Catholic, not to gain an earthly crown, but to become a membenjof
what she conscientiously thinks is tlie
true fold of Christ, wherein she may
bo saved. As bIio is old enough to
know what she is doing, we niiiBt give
her credit for acting reasonably and
with full deliberation.
Secondly—When she was received
into the church, sho made a simple
profession of the Catholic Faith, and
not, as Mr. Calder states, an oath.
Finally—To show how wrong Mr
Calder was when ho quoted some form
of oath and placed it in Princess Ena's
mouth, and to remove any doubt aB to
the exact words which thc Princess
did speak, 1 transcribe word for word
the Profession of F'aith which converts
to the Catholic Church make, when
they are received ;
"Profession of Faith.—I, (name)
having before mc the Holy Gospels,
which I touch with my hand, and
knowing that no one can bo saved
witlibut that laitb which the Holy
Catholic, Apostolic Roman Catholic
Church holds, believes and teaches,
against which 1 grievo that I have
greatly erred, inasmuch as I have held
and believed doctrines oppoBed to her
leaching, I now, with sorrow and
contrition for my past errors, profess
that I believe the Holy, Catholic,
Apostolic Roman Church tu lc the
only and true Church, established on
earth by Jesus Christ, to which I submit myself with my whole soul. I
believe all the articles of faith that
she proposes to my btlief, and I reject
and condemn all that she rejects and
condemns, and I am ready to observe
all that she commands mc. And I
make the following profession of faith:
I believe in one only God in three
divine persons, distinct from, and
equal to each other, i. e., the Father,
the Son, and tho Holy Ghost. I believe in the Catholic doctrine ot the
Incarnation, Passion, Death, and
Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ;
and the personal union of the two
Natures, the divine and the human;
the divine maternity ot the most holy
Mary, together with her spotless virginity. 1 believe in the true, real,
and substantial presence of the Body
and Blood, together with the Soul and
Divinity of our Lord Jesus ChriBt, in
the most holy Sacrament ol the Eucharist. I believe ill tlie seven sacraments instituted by Jesus Christ for
tlie salvation of mankind, i. e., Bap-
tism, Confirmation, Eucharist, Penance, Extreme-Unction, Order, Matrimony, 1 believe in Purgatory, the
Resurrection i ( the Dead, Everlasting
Life. 1 believe in the Primacy, not
only ol honor, but of jurisdiction, of
tlie Roman Pontiff, successor of St.
Peter, Prince ol the Apostles, Vicar of
Jesus Christ. I believe in tlie vener
iition of the Suinls and'of their
images. I believe in the authority of
tlie Apostolic nnd Ecclesiastical Traditions, and ol tin- Holy Scriptures,
which we must interpret and under-
sliinil only in tbe sense which our
holy mother the Catholic Church has
lielil and dues hold. And I believe in
everything else that bus been defined
