Hopeful Outlook in the West.
Winnu.k«, April 14.—A very hopeful view of the situation in the west is
taken by the Commerrinl, which says
business in spring and summer goods
continues in good volume. Whole
solars generally are confident that the
situation will steadily improve as the
miosoii advances. Tbe heavy immigration from tbe United States aud
llrltish Isles is having a stimulating
1 fleet upon business.
It is said that tbe newcomers are
better off financially than tbo itiiini-
gtluM of   former  ssasoos.     This   is
especially true of those wbo come from
the south, as many of them hare sold
valuable lands and other property before moving to Oanada, An early
spring is looked for, 011 the prairie snd
it is estimated that the acreage increase for wheat will be more tbsu a
million acres over that ol last year,
These conditions and others will
reasonable prospects ol a good growing
year, make business men in general
feel that by nest fall, which is but tbe
nutter of a few month) away, we will
see groat activity in trade and a bright
outlook in all lioee.
FAREWELL
BANQUET
C. P. Latham Receives Enthusiastic Send-off and Handsome
Presentation—A Most Enjoyable Gathering.
Bevelstoke is losing one by one
some of ber best men and popular citizens, and while we rejoice that tbey
no doubt are leaving us with an idea
of tbeir own betterment, yet we regret
thnt those who have been amongst us
so long, aud have been well tried and
are true and earnest citizens, sre saying goodbye.
A farewell banquet, under tbe auspices of Fire Brigade No. il at the
close of their regular monthly scission,
and a number of other citizens
was held in the Union Hotel Restaurant on Monday night, on the occasion
of the departure of C. P. Latham from
Bevelstoke. It is with general expressions of regret that we say goodbye, or
better, ' au revoir', to Mr. Latham
wbo has been bo closely associated
with the city for so many years, and
wbo has taken a lively and keen interest in sports, and in the Fire Brigade work, besides being popular
among his fellows in commercial life.
Bevelstoke wishes him every success
About 40 sat down to one of the
best social functions ever held in this
city, good will and harmony being
exemplified on all sides, to pay a final
mark ol esteem to our departing citizen. Mayor Lindmark took the chair
and announced that as the outer man
seemed well pleased with himself it
was time to turn their attention to
the inner man and walk into the good
things prepared by Stewart McDonald.
Supper over the chairman proposed
the toast of the King which was received witb much ovation and heartily
drank. A lengthy toast list wss honored including "Our Guest," replied
to by W. Hornell, J. Hume, and C. F.
Lindmark; "Oui City," responded to
by Aldermsn Foote, W. Bews, and
Boy McDonald; ''Bevelstoke Sports,"
by A. McBae, £. H. Lewis, VV. Barber,
G. Knight; "Our Lsdies," Guy Barber
J. T. Pollock, W. B. Bobertsoo and G.
Knspp, these bachelors surprising tbe
company by the apparent interest they
took in the fair sex which augurs well
for the future. The "Fire Brigade" by
C. B. Mscdonald, G. H. Brock, J. B.
Scott, J. Devine; "Business and

J. G. McLean, J. McPhail, H. Bews,
A. McEachern; "The Press," by A. B.
Hillier; ''The Chairman," by himself.
Tbe speeches were in every case appropriate for the occasion and all testified to the good will extended to the
guest of the evening and regret at his
departure. Many humorou? and witty
remarks were made causing much
amusement. An excellent musical
programme was rendered including
selections by Guy Barber, E.H. Lewis,
W. Smythe and J. Donald, the latter's
songs being much appreciated.
Mayor Lindmark ou behalf of the
company presented Mr. Latham with
a handsome gold headed umbrella,
saying a few appropriate words and
expressing the genuine regret at his
depsrture.
Mr. Latham, in expressing h's appreciation of the gift and tbe kind
words ol his fellow citizens, said that
although he was going back to his old
home again be could not but feel
deeply the parting with dear old Bevelstoke, and the regret at leaving his
friends and associates. He would always look back with pleasure upon
the pleasant time spent here and
would always keep a warm corner in
his heart for the city.
The proceedings closed with the
singing of tbe National Anthem, the
"Maple Leaf For Ever," and "Auld
Lang Syne." Mr. Latham will be
greatly missed from the staff of C. B.
Hume A Co. where he has been a
most laithful and zealous worker.
$10,000,000  FIRE
1,350 Acres of Boston, Mass.,
Gutted by Gale Fed Flames
Boston, April 14.—An apparently
insignificant fire which starti'd among
the rags on a dump in t'.ie oity of
Chelsea was funned by a northwest
gale into a conflagration which obliterated nearly one third of tlie city.
Five hundred dwelling homes and
public buildings were destroyed, 1.100
families were driven from tlieii homes
and 10,000 people made homeless.
The loss is estimated  at $10,000,000.
Three hundred and fifty acreB were
burned over in the lire at Chelsea.
This forenoon militiamen and marines
were on guard against looters and
military regulations prevail. Belief
bureaus have been started. Charitable
organizationi are helping the home-
Hess and public buildings bare been
thrown open and hundreds of military
brought in to aid in sheltering them.
SALVATI0H ARMY IMMIGRANTS
Second  Contingent  Arrive in
B. C.-AII Well To Do
A special Salvation Army immigration train pulled in here on Sunday
night bringing 280 immigrants lor all
parts of B. C. This is the second con
tingt-ut that has been brought out
this year by the Army and all appear
enthusiastic over their future and
speak in loud praise of Canada. Two
hundred left the train here and were
distributed to various points of the
surrounding territory where positions
are said to be awaiting them. A lew
of ths thirty-two domestios stayed off
also. A gratifying feature is that
nearly all the men in the party are
fairly well supplied with funds. One
man, with a family of six, had $7,500
in cold cash.
Adjutant Wakefield has received
over 500 applications for domestic
help from all parts of B. C. in the
past three months all of which had
been filled.
Adjutant Wakefield, Major Creigh-
ton and Major Morris were with tbe
party. Wjrk has been found for
every immigrant brought out by the
Salvation Army. The immigrants
speak highly of the manner in which
the C.P.B. transportation facilities
were carried out and the C P.M. speak
in the best terms of the conduct of
the new immigrants. One auu of the
party met a brother in thin city whom
he had not seen for twenty five years
Tbe contingent numbered 1400 wbo
landed at Halifax, 1120 of these were
left in other province, the remainder
coming across the mountains.
THE LATEST
TELEGRAMS
BRUTALLY  MURDERED
A Mounted Policeman Cut in
Two While on Guard
Cranbrook, April 14.—Yesterday
morning about 7 o'clock an alarm was
iaieed among the guests at breakfast
at the Imperial Hotel, Frank, Alta.
that a murder bad been committed at
the back of the establishment.
One of the guests found tlie dead
body of a man lying in the alleyway
about forty feet from the back entrance to the hotel with a gash in the
right side of the neck which had very
nearly severed the head from the
shoulders. The wound was evidently
inflicted with an axe or some other
heavy weapon.
The dead man was a constable of
the Northwest Mounted Police, transferred from Macleod a few days ago
and said to have been of the name of
Moran or Morris.
A few nights ago an attempt had
been made to burglarize the sample
room of the hotel and the murdered
man bad been put on in civilian's to
watch the hotel on the chance of the
return of the culprits. Owing to the
Frank mines being closed down, considerable destitution exists amongst
the foreign element, to whom, rightly
or wrongly; this dastardly crime is
attributed.
FAVOR SIR HIBBERT
Vancouver Conservatives Support Him in Meeting.
Vancouver, April 14.—A large section of Vancouver Conservatives passed
a resolution Saturday night favoring
Sir Charles Hibbert Tupper as Vancouver's candidate in the next federal
election, believinn that tbis was tbe
desire of the majority of the electorate,
The meeting did not claim to represent tbe whole local party, and did not
wish to arouse disaffection in its ranks,
so il added that should those favoring
Sir Charles fail to secure his nomination at the regular convention they
would join in supporting the convention's nominee. A requisition will lie
circulated for signatures of electors
favoring the nomination ol Sir Charles
and asking him to allow his name to
go before the convention.
Sir Charles recently informed friends
by letter that he was pledged to tbe
Pictou, N, S., Conservatives, but was
in the hands of tbe party and Mr.
Borden. Should they deem it wise
that he also contest Vancouver, he
would accept a nomination.

SOCIETY   REFORMS.
We are living in an age of  progression which means that the best
and surest methods   for   the   safe
conducting   of    our  communities
must be only arrived at by arguing
prog aud cons of different situations
and the more or   less  reformation
that mua; be   introduced.      In all
ages ini; honest man has made  en-
;.rjie«      •   exposing   the foiblw- of

eApute    \auity,    greed,   pretet^e,
hypocrisy and selfishness in  high
placers will be   hammered,    abused
nnd dragged through the mud.     A
hero of this kind has to die  in  order to get bis revsard. Look through
the page:' of   history and you will

Upon which he preaches, otherwise
his words will full on stoney ground
and bear no fruit, in other   words,
he must practice what ho preaches.
The same treatment meeted out to
reformers in early days is accorded
at the present time,  though  somewhat modified,   to   all   who   step
from   the   beaten  path and try to
point the way to higher and better
grounds,   especially   in    Oanada.

LUMBER SITUATION
Controversy is rife concerning
the lumber situation and the possibilities of the prices going down.
Owing to the present unsettled and
condition of affairs, it is dillicull
to make any definite announcements. The following excerpt from
the Western Canada Lumberman
may throw some light on the question :
Pessimists will tell us that with
the mill yards stocked up and 150,-
000,000 feet of logs in the water,
and fairly full yards in the prairies, there is no hopeful outlook
whatever. That there is enough
lumber on hand, going by other
years, to supply the demand for
the entire year, and that a mill
wheel need be turned after cutting
up the present log supply.
There are optimists, however,
and many of them who see nothing
to be discouraged at. They say
that comparatively speaking the
log and lumber supply is insignificant provided a brisk demand
sprang up, and every mill in the
province before the year is out will
be angry that they did not run all
the booms they could get hold of
into their waterways at $7.50 and
■$3.00. Some prophocy that the
active demand will start in spring.
Others more conservative state that
about November a brisk demand
will spring up, and be continued
until the cold weather stops it.
As to lower prices, it is difficult
to figure out where they will come
in. The mills have paid heavily
for the present lumber in the yards
and if they sell any lower than
current prices it will mean a financial loss, and there is certainly no
use offering at lower prices if there
is no one to buy. It is likely if a
brisk demand springs up, that there
would be no need of lower prices,
that the mill could quickly unload their high priced lumber, and
cut up  a   further  supply   at less
brothel and the whiskey shop go together to degrade   men."    No doubt a
largo number of this gentleman's foi-1
lowers look up to him aa the acme of
wisdom, and a pious shudder ol holy
horror will creep down their hack* si
the thought of the awful degradation
of the Kootenay country, but if you
will give me space, Mr. Editor, I
should like to look at this question a
little mote impartially, The way this
gentleman uses words forces one to
d uin his acquaintance with the English tongue nuil lite meanings of the
words 'ie uses. He accu-rs dboI being
atheistic, which hs describes as being
rampant, 1 have mixed with nun of
all classes in this district for nearly
seven years now and have not yet met
one who denies the existence of a
supreme beiog, or intelligence, or God
if you so wish to term it. How he has
come to this conclusion is beyond my
conception, except it be tbat he terms
men atheists, because they will not
accept his own special brand of belief.
When he refers to anarchy he evidently refers to a ftw desperate, misguided individuals who take violent
measures to bring about the time
when governors and laws, militia und
police shall be no more, and the lion
shall lie down with the lamb, Tine
anarchy is not practicable until the
spirit of love for one's fellow men ihal)
reign over mankind and really the
victim of our Bystem driven crazy by
hunger, the policeman's club and the
soldier's bayonet, seems to me to be
very conspiciouB hereabouts by his
absence and when this reverend gen
tleman gets to Socialism I should like
to meet him on the public platform
and prove to him that be does not
know what he is talking about.
Christ taught a philosophy of life—
not by any means original—which if
practically applied to our everyday
economic and material life would be

al choir, of which the bride was a
member, was well represented at the
C. P. R. station, where many friends

of friendly appreciation and wish the
happy couple God-speed on their life
journey..
The bride looked lovely in a prettily

THE PURE MILK QUESTION.
Interesting Article by   Frank
Richard, J.P., of Vancouver
There is considerable discussion at
the present time in the Old Country
regnrding the method of supp'ying
pure milk. TI.e Royal Commission
on tiiheieiilosis has coiitinned the evi-
dei.ce hitherto existing that tuberculosis milk powerfully reinforces the
store of human tuberculosis, and the
British Government are about to bring
in a measure dealing wilh the question. The cowsheds appear to be one
of the great obstacles to the maintenance of good health among the
cattle.    It ie estimated that the recon-
removal of animals plainly tuliercul-
osis will nut abolish tuberculosis milk "
When the scheme is put into operation, it is proposed thut certain farms
containing non tuberculosis stuck are
to be eainblished in various pins uf
the conhtry. They will be used for tin
reiirini/ of non-tuberculosis calves,
derived from tuberculosis, or non-tub
erculosis dams or other farms. As
time progressed other farms would hi
taken in, and necessary buildings and
reconstructions made, and purified
stock will be regularly produced without dislocation of tbe dairying industry of the country.
After this once done, the farmer
will be required to keep his stock free
from diseases  at  his own expense un
THE SOURCE OF SUPPLY
struction of the buildings will involve
an expenditure of 1100,000,000 which
would fall principally upon the landlord*, but it is understood that the
government will advance money at a
low rate of interest, and tbe farmers
will have to pay a higher rental to reimburse the landlords for the increased
expenditure.
The farmers will ultimately derive a
benefit more than the increased rental
by the improved value in their stock,
and their freedom from tuberculosis.
It is also estimated, by careful manipulation, the government may confidently eipect to be out only ¥20,000,
000.
The people of Manchester, in England, have taken the matter in band
in an energetic manner, and obtained
certain powers, wbich they have used
to considerable effect, and in a report
dealing with the subject, it is stated
as follows:
"The provisions of suitable, easily-
cleansed, and easily disinfected cowsheds thus become an indispensable
preliminary to any complete, and indeed to any imperfect scheme for the
eradication or further limitation of
tuberculosis in cattle. It is not to be
supposed, however, that nothing has
been as yet effected in Manchester iu
the way of reducing the amount of
tuberculosis milk imports into the
city. Since 1890 the city cowsheds
have been largely re-constructed.
Shortly after tbat date tbe Manchester
Pure Milk Supply Co. was founded,
and undoubtedly effected much good
In 1899 the Manchester milk clauses
were obtained, and in consequence of
the mode ia which they bave been
carried out the amount of tubereulosis
milk entering the city hss been reduced by more than one-half, tbe mortality from tbe corresponding class of
tuberculosis diseases has fallen considerably, the stock kept in dairies
supplying Manchester has much improved, and we are assured by Prof.
Delepine that tbe general disease-producing power ol the milk coming in
to the city bas keen greatly reduced,
while the degree of cleanliness is much
higher.
Nevertheless, however successfully
and energetically these clauses may be
administered, they are not calculated
to lead to the entire suppression of
tuberculosis milk. There appear to
be two courses open. One is to schedule open or clinioal tuberculosis as a
contagiousJdisease,and to remove from
the herds plainly tuberculosis animals.
Tbe other is to eradicate tuberculosis
from dairy herds, Whicbever'plan be
adopted, the creation of a Veterinary
Public Health Service becomes a necessity. Tbe eradication of tuberculosis from dairy berde,(or from bovines)
appears at first sight to be much the
larger snd more difficult demand of
the two, as it would certainly be the
moat satisfactory to all concerned.
But in reality it may be the less costly
of the two policies.
"To establish a veterinary public
health service is necessarily a costly,
though it is, we believe, a noceesnry
proceeding. We should rrquire something very Hiilistanti.il from such a
service. Now the scheduling of open
tuberculosis, even if it is attends d
with tbe slaughter of p'aiuly lubi r-
culosis animals, will not eiudicaie
tuberculosis nor remove infection from
daiiy herd-. The butts of lhe slaughter house show plainly tl at there may
lea good deal of t uin renin u» iufic-
tion fiom i) 11 i id ii Ih which the veterinary surgeon could not diagnose hy
ordinary clinical methods, and admin
Utrative  experience  shows  that the
der the control of the public health
authorities, but he will be advised by
a veterinary surgeon of his own selection. It iB stated that tue issue of
tuberculin would have to be controlled
by the State.
Regulations will be framed that the
farm buildiugs are to be of a certain
model and licenses will be issued in
the rural districts by tbe County
Councils.
The question of dealing with the
milk in the cities is not bo easily controlled, but it is proposed that suitable buildings shall be erected and the
persons distributing milk before completing a contract for the supply are
to obtain a certificate regarding the
farms from which the milk is obtained. They are to produce, whenever
called upon, to the accredited officer
of the district, in whose area their
milk was sold, a certificate in respect
to any and every farm from which
tbeir milk was supplied, to the effect
tbat the cowsheds on such farm or
farms, complied in all respects witb
tbe model regulations. Also that tbe
milk dealers should, before entering
into a contract for a supply of milk
personally to visit any farm or farms,
from which a supply is about to be
obtained and satisfy themselves that
such farms comply with tbe model
regulations.
In connection with this question I
have frequently taken the liberty of
urging the government to grant the
authorities of Vancouver power over
tbe sources of supply or to deal with
such directly by a Provincial Offieer.
Tbe least we should expect is the
serious co-oparation of the provincial
municipal authorities to protect and
save the lives of our children.

AVALANCHE
OF DEATH
Immense Snow Slide Sweeps
Japanese Work Train off
Track—Four Men Killed and
Six Injured.
In the stillness of the middle watches
of Sunday night, a C.P.R. work train,
with a crew of eighteen Japanese lay
at rest at Downie Siding, 15 miles
east of Revelstoke. The inmates of
tbe cars were peacefully slumbering in
their berths, totally unconscious of
any approaching danger, when suddenly there swept down the mountain
Bide, with tremendous velocity, a huge
snow slide burling everything in its
path to destruction. The train, consisting of four cars, was splintered to
match wood, the unfortunate men
being buried deep in the snow, four
of whom were smothered to death and
six others badly bruised and shaken
up.
The slide, which occurred about 1.30
o'olock on Monday morning, was a
gigantic one, being nearly 20 feet deep
and 200 feet long. Downie Siding
has always been considered a bad place
for slides and this is not tbe first fatal
slide which has occurred near this
point. Many of our citizens will remember the sad death of the late Supt
Downie and Kenny Dodd which occurred about the same place a few
years ago. The C. P. R. have always
expel ienced considerable difficulty
here with snow slides, and in order
to obviate the danger and delay which
these occurrences occasion have had
a gang of Japanese engaged for some
months past in moving tbe main line
in this vicinity to a point of eafety.
Four cars, which which were used
by the Japanese as boarding cars, had
been switched on to a siding clear
away from tbe track of former slides,
and were considered in a safe position.
This slide, however, which brought
death in its train, took an entirely
different direction from any of its predecessors, with the results already
stated.
As soon as the C. P. R. officials in
the city were notified of the accident
a special train, witb Dr. Hamilton on
board, was immediately despatched to
the scene and the dead and injured
brought in, the latter being conveyed
to the hospital where every attention
is being given them,
On Monday afternoon Dr. Cross,
coroner, impannelled a jury and beld
an inquest into the cause of death of
tbe four unfortunate Japanese. Tbe
jury visited the scene of tbe accident,
snd after hearing the evidence had no
difficulty in returning a verdict of
accidental death, no blame attaching
to anyone.
