but Boys' Clothing. They have the largest and
most exclusive Hoys' Clothing Factory in C-tnada,

DOMINION
ELECTIONS
Goodeve Wins for Kootenay
With a Majority of 921.—A
Great Liberal Landslide.—
Status of the Polls.
Thursday, November 12th, election
day for Kootenay in the Dominion
elections has come and gone and there
remains only tbe aftermath of a great
campaign. From early dawn on
ThurnUy the workers ol both parties
were afield, getting their machinery in
readinesB [for a final effort. Long
before tbe hour for polling came round
tbe old post otlice building presented
a busy Bcenc, and at 9 o'clock when
tbe booths were opened and the array
of scrutineers bad taken tbeir places
the real activity of the election commenced. Throughout tbe day the
crowd round tbe polling station never
diminished, and liberals and conservatives and perhaps even Socialists,
were hard at work busily reminding
tardy electors of their duty and ol
tbeir franchise, and rounding up
every man they could think of from
every corner of the city. Thursday
was tbe day of free drives and rides
and it seemed that every available
vehicle in the city bad been pressed
into service. A uoticeable feature of
polling day here was tbe almost
entire absence of brawling or disturbance between. the parties, and it
certuinly redounds to Revelstoke's
credit th.it io spite of the great and
keen rivalry between the local political parties, all friction, individual
or collective, was conspicuous by its
absence Bright and dry weather
favored the election and seldom has
Revelstoke enjoyed such a contest.
Towards the closing hour (or polling
excitement ran riot and both parties
were making strenuous efforts to rush
in atjthe last minute all the stray
votes that could be located. The polls
cloBed at the stroke of five and for the
next bour or two there were but lew
in tbo^city who were not suffering
from intense suppressed excitement.
Meanwhile returns were being flashed
across tbe wires trom other seats ol
war, and when the final counts bad
been made snd the news ol the Conservative victory noised abroad, tbe
pent up feelings of that party's supported were let loose. The results
were surprising to all and the Tories
are now rejoicing over as great a
victory aa they have ever had. Alter
tbe first blow the Liberals took their
defeat in a sportsmenlike spirit and
bowed to tbe inevitable. In both committee rooms, the result was animatedly discussed and the Conservatives
at once commenced to celebrate tbeir
victory by public demonstration. In
spite of their defeat the Liberals made
the best of a bad deal and are to be
credited with a loyal spirit to the man
and to the party (or which they had
so manfully fought. About 8:30 p.m,
a large crowd gathered at the Conservative committee rooms and a torchlight procesBion was formed witb the
Independent Band in advance, parading the city playing on the route. It
was a great nigbt, and the Conservatives celebratid unstintiugly, loud
cheers at interval, being given for
Mr. Borden, Mr. Goodeve and Premier
McBride as the procession moved
through tbe city.

DEAD MONARCH
Reported Death of the Emperor
of China
Kuaiig Hsu, of the Manchu Ily
nasty, died on November 10th at
Peking. Such is alleged to bo the
truth by prominont local Chinese
closely in touch with powerlul fellow
countrymen at the Celestial Capital.
The secret has filtered out through
the intricate Masonic ramifications
which underlie tho intrigues and
policies ol the Chinese Empire. That
the death ol the Emperor Ib not
known generally even at Peking, is
evident Irom the tone of despatches
received.
Kuang Hsu was born on August 15,
1871, and succeeded to the Throne on
January 12th, 1876.
It is asserted by thoso iu a position
to speak with authority that Tzu-Hsi,
the Empress-Dowager, is keeping thn
demise ol the Emperor seoret as long
aa possible in order to mature the
Government's plans lor confronting
the disturbances tbat are believed to
be inevitable.
THE LATEST
TELEGRAMS
Terrible Disaster—B. C. Prize

Treaty Abrogated.—German
Disaster.
HamM, Westphalia, Germany, Nov.
14.—The greatest mine disaster for
many years in Germany occurred this
morning at the Rabdod Mine, three
miles from here. There waB a heavy
explosion in the mine at about 4 a.m,
and almost immediately after the
mine took fire. Ol 380 miners, only
six escaped without injury. Thirty-
live were taken out badly injured and
37 bodies were brought out. The remaining 302 have been given up for
lost.
Victoria, Nov. 14.—NewB has been
received bere that British Columbia
Iruit carried off the gold medal at
Bath, Eiig , and tbe silver-gilt medal
at the Crystal Palace, London. These
are the highest awards in these shows.
WiKNii'EG, Nov. 14.—The grand
jury yesterday brought in a true bill
against John W. Dafoe, editor ol the
Winnipeg Free Press, ou a charge of
criminal libel. Tbe case arose out of
tbe Dominion elections, the Free
l'ress accusing C. R. McLaghlau, an
ex policeman, of org inizing a gang to
create a disturbance at a political
meeting.
Ottawa, Nov. 13—Canada .has been
invited to send a team to Fort Perry,
United States, next full, to take part
in a shoot for the Palma trophy. The
invitation will be accepted by tbe
Dominion Rifle Association and a
team to represent Cunada selected
after the D. R. A, matches on Rock-
liffe ranges next fall.
Ottawa, Nov. 14—Failing ratification of tbe Franco-Canadian trade
convention of hut year by the French
Senate at its present session, it is
altogether probable tbat tbe Canadfan
government will give formal notice of
abrogation of the existing treaty as
negotiated by Sir Charles Tupper in
1893.
POWER OF THE FUTURE
Mines in Kootenay Using Electricity for Operating
NELSON, Nov. 13.—Perhaps the most
remarkable feature of the mining
world in Kootenay today is the rapid
electrification of the mines in tbe
neighborhood of Nelson and of Bon-
nington Falls, on the Kootenay river,
where the West Kootenay Power A
Light Company and the city of Nelson
are converting the waterpower into
' juice" and bidding against each other
for custom.
Work ia already in progress on the
substation at the Silver King mine,
nine miles from thia city, and it is
expected to be complete in about
three weeks, when the machinery will
be installed and the work uf un wanning the mine commenced, At prcsint
twenty-live men aie employed at tho
Silver King, but with the introduction
ol electricity and power drills the
Dumber will be raised to 100, wbicli
will   iiinke   it   a     very   considerable
Cllllip.
Another mine that is tu be eleelrifled is the Queen Victoria and the
power line from the falls to the mine
is already complete. The installation
ol the machinery will ace this mine
also run by electricity. The working
of mines by electric power ia us yet
only in its infancy in Kooteuay and
the possibilities in Bight fur this power
with its easy regulation, cheapness,
cleanliness, etc., aro enormous,
V ork baskets, sewing  baskets, etc.,
just opened at 0. B Macdonald's.  -
The Posters On the Walls.
lu connection with the campaign
being raised in many parts of Canada
against bill board lithograph advertising, the Toronto Telegram bus the lollowing remarks to make, which arc
very much to .be point:
"Lithographed representatives uf the
uudraped or scantily draped human
figure are allowed to remain on the
walla il used in it means of inciting
people to buy winter undergarments.
"Similar studies in nudity and semi-
nudity are chased off the walls on
which they have lieen pasted as a
moans ol inducing people to buy theater tickets.
"Why should tbe manufacturer ol
underwear be privileged to advertise
his products with so much pictorial
splendor ol anatomical detail? The
censorship that has pruned the luxuriance out ol theatrical posters bas yet
a work to do on tbo business lithographs that still adorn the outer walla."

LIBEL TRIAL CONCLUDED
Jury Decides that Calgary Eye
Opener should be Suppressed
Calgary, Nov. 13.—Tbe famous
trial of D. McGillicuddy, charged wilh
having criminally libelled R. C. Edwards, editor of the Eye-Opeuer, closed
last night with the conviction of McGillicuddy, wbo was fined $100
The jury found that the plea
of justification was not sustained.
They added a rider to tbeir verdict
that the jury, as citizens of Calgary,
desired to place on recoid tbeir disapproval of the obscene literature,
illustrations and such like in the Eye-
Opener, and suggested .hat the paper
be suppressed iu case similar stuff be
printed iu the future.
The judge decided that each party
should pay bis own costs. The judge
in his finding cautioned tbe Eye-
Opener against repeating objectionable literatuie.
The defence asked lor a reserve case
inasmuch ai, the judge left to the jury
tbe deciding upon the point ul justification.
CIVIC POLITICS NEXT
The elections in Kootenay are
now incidents in the history of
their province and of the Dominion and the campaign of Thursday
haa been fought out to a finish and
thoee that have fallen must take
their defeat like men. Every citizen is bound by tbe very fact of his
citizenship to take an active and
intelligent part in the politics of
bis country, for politics i3 the
science and art of government. In
Canada government ie founded
upon the convictions and opinions,
and ideals of the people in the
democratic country find representation and expression in public
men and in public institutions.
And so it is with civ.c politics, and
our people should take an even
more keen interest in their city
administration which directly affects their home life and business
prosperity. And, is it not a fact
that all of us really have more
interest in Canada as a whole and
in the community in which we live
than we have in the politics of the
country. It is true tbat. to be an
earncHt and consistent citizen every
man should lake nn interest in
election, but noiv Unit ibe turmoil
is over let us think ol .Veal Koule-
nay and Revelstoke, fur there i- nn
better 'listric' and no better cit.
f sr its size in tbe provfnep. One nl
the admirable lea tn res ol the campaign in Revelstoko was (he good
nature displayed by lho members
o| all parlies, lila-rals, conservative- or sociallsls, The librr.-il
party hss tuken it' defeat, in nui.-t
cases, like gentlemen, ami laughed
and jnkeil with those uf the victorious one. The fight has been
warm ami w-il conducted,nnd cun
l-e termed a.*- a game of caul- where
two nil down in piny, both pluycrs
knowing thai only Ode can will.
Thursday night was a great ni*_hl
in Revelstoke and so far as _*.
know not a harsh word was Spoken.
Tbis demoi'htriiii'l tbe (act lhat
our Revelstoke people arc all Can-
a lians, and although tbey mn \
diffir in political policy, and fighl
lurd while the fight is on, they
have   one   hope and one aim and
that is the advancement and tbe
prosperity of a country that promises to be one of the greatest nations
on earth and of a city which is on
the high road to popularity and
commercial importance in B, C.
We honestly believe that our people are proudor of that fnct and
take a real whole-hearted interest
in the welfare of their home city,
rather than the fact that they are
liberals or conservatives. We
would urge our people therefore to
turn their best attention to civic
matters which are most important
to us now, now that the great
campaign of 1908 has ended.
A PARENTAL DUTY.
The question of a curfew system
in Revelstoke has frequently been
suggested and indeed in many
cities in B. C. that practice has
been adopted. A curfew system
may be alright in its way, but it is
hardly feasible and certainly cannot work marvels and there should
be really no need for it. Parents
who permit their children to spend
their nights on tbe streets are either
too carelesB or ignorant to do their
simplest duty to their children.
The temptations to which they are
submitted invariably lead to bad
results and the children are not to
blame, for the fault lies with the
parents. In some cases it is mere
negligence; the parents know better
but are too careless to bring tbeir
children in at nightfall; others we
presume, do not know any better;
it is a case of don't know or don't
care. Parents are heard from time
to time making excuses for themselves and trying to lay the blame
on some one else, but it is the
parents' duty to look after their
children and they cannot shutrie it
off themselves nnd on to the public
by any curfew bylaw that waB ever
conceived. Herding on the streets
at night leads away from home and
home influences, and ends in
coarse behaviour and unruliness.
Make your home attractive and
that will do more to keep your
children in it. There is no question about the authority of the
parent, at least thero should be
none, and obedience la the correlative of authority. Incalculable
injury is done by parents who have
not the moral courage to assert
themselves   and   their authority in
the home. We do not advocate
actual military j discipline in the
home, but given cases where it is
beyond cavil that the parent's
necessary authority should be used
it is a great mistake not to use it.
The child must keep off the streets
at night, or that child will be no
good, in nine cases ont of ten.
CHEAP CABLE SERVICE.
It is gratifying to see that the
postmaster general at Ottawa is
endeavoring to secure an arrangement between the Imperial Government and the cable companies by
which the rates on tranB-Atlantic
messages will be reduced. The
ocean cable should be instrumental
in revolutionissing the world's commercial system, but hitherto this
has not been fully accomplished by
reason of the fact that the rates
were fixed on the principle of getting as much money as possible out
of the service, instead of encouraging its use. Consequently the cable
has cut very little figure as compared to what it might do. The
cable should be the agent of general convenience and the chief factor
in general business and the time
has come for this change. As the
world becomes more and more developed the need of quick, cheap
and reliable cable news is an essential not only for the enlightenment
of the universe in general but also
for the furthering the interests of
the several units which go to form
the British Empire. There is no
reason at all why the reduction in
cable rates should result financially
different than the reduction of
postal rates; what is lost in individual messages would be gained
in the increased service.
Union
Thanksgiving   Services
A vary hearty union Thanksgiving
service of the Methodist, Baptist and
Presbyterian people of tbe city, wae
held in St. Andrew's Church on Monday morning at 11 o'clock. Rev. W.
C. Calder, pastor of the cbiicb, directed the service. The union choir led
tbo congregation in Bong,-besidea giving in splendid form a very beautiful
Thanksgiving anthem. Rev. T. W.
Hall, pastor of the Methodist Ohurch,
preached the sermon, based upon the
first verse of the 101st Psalm, "I will
sing ol mercy and judgment." The
addiess referred to national mercies
wbich.werejdespised by the nations ol
old until the judgments of heaven fell
and cleaned out the moral impurity.
The preacher warned tbe congregation
that history repeats itself and that if
Divine mercies are not appreciated in
thiB twentieth century, Divine judgment will be tbe necessary chastisement.
Rev J. R. Robertson and Rev. W.
P. Freeman took part in tbe service.
The collection was to help tbe Children's Aid Society of tbis province.

FINAL RALLY
OPERA HOUSE
Ralph Smith, Liberal M. P. for
Nanaimo and E. T. Kingsley,
Socialist, Address Electors
on Campaign.
The final skirmish in the great
Dominion eleotion campaign took
place on Wednesday nigbt when the
Liberals beld a rally meeting in tbe
opera house. A large and enthusiastic audience Attended tbe meeting,
the Independent Band making things
lively at tbe door prior to commencement.
J. M. Kelly took the chair, and
present on the platform were Ralph
Smith, M. P., Irom Nanaimo, and E.
T. Kingsley, the Socialist organizer.
The chairman commenced by stating
that Premier McBride was incorrect
when he said that Mr. Galliber had
done nothing lor B. C. and tbis district, but pointed out that be bad
secured tbe appropriation ol .f 125,000
for this district as well as over $1,000,
000 for the lend bounty and other
things.
Ralph Smith then opened his address and explained why he waB
supporting Smith Curtis in tbe campaign. He said he stood Ior relorm
and labor reform, speaially pointing
out that the Liberal government bad
brought in most ol the labor legisla
tion as well aB securing tbe fair expenditure ol public money. He dealt
with the Oriental question and showed
bow the Liberals bad brought in
legislation restricting Chinese immigration, as well sb that of the Hindoos.
Jap labor, too, had been discountenanced by tbe Liberals and he compared what they bad done as different
to what the Conservatives had not
done in that respect. No man, be
said, can be a true advocate of a white
B. C, if he employs Orientals to work
Ior him. The Liberal policy will
bring in settlers Ior vacant lands, and
this land development bas caused the
great prosperity in B. C. He relerred
to the different aots brought in by the
Libeials to protect labor and avoid
strikes snd lockouts, and showed how
the Liberal government bad produced
a surplus in tbe post office department instead of a deficit which tbe
Conservatives had done. General
campaign subjects were dealt witb
and tbe speaker concluded witb an
appeal to the electors to support the
Liberal party and good government.
Mr, Kingsley then took tbe floor
and after dealing witb tbe subjects
mentioned by Mr. Smith and pointing
out how the present system of government could never bring prosperity to
tbe working classes, snd be went on
to explain the theory ol Socialism as
well as the practical side of the issue.
He reviewed the condition of the wage
slave to-day as being no better than
in tbe feudal days and ridiculed the
idea that international trade would
benefit the workeie. The present
misery and starvation of tbe unemployed waB due to tbe present system
of government, a capitalist's robbing
principle and tbe day was coming
when the working man should receive
the full value ol bis labor. He said
tbat if tbe people vote for capitalism
they must take their medicine, but
tbat no man would be elected in the
Dominion at all to Ottawa except by
the workingman's vote. In conclusion he urged that the wage slaves
break away from the present slavery
system and send men to the legislature wbo will bring it about, and be
denounced it an unjust thing that a
deposit should be made a penalty lor
daring to assert political rights. Tbe
working classes were the only  useful
class in society and it lay in their
power to turn the scale, A lew final
remarks terminated the meeting and
cheers were given Ior Curtis and
Laurier.
GEN.-MANAGERS OPINION
B. C. is Becoming the Envy of
the World
That, the eyes of all Eastern Canada
and the States are turned toward
British Columbia, and that the natural resources and industries ol this
province are meeting with deserved
recognition, is tbe opinion of Mr.
George J. Bury, general manager of
western lines ol the Canadian Pacific
Railway.
Mr. Bury, Grant Hall, superintendent of motive power, A. Halton,
transput I 'ion inspector, and F. F,
Ui.steed. eneral superintendent of
the Pacific division, passed through
Kevelstoke on Sunday night en route
for the Coast, stopping at all the
chief points on the division. Regarding the orop, Mr. Bury said:
" The northwest grain dealers esti
mate the wheat crop to bo 99,000,000
bushels, which, excluding that required for seeding and for interior
mills, leaves a balance ol 79,000,000
bushels for export.
"Up to the present over 30,000,000
bushels of wheat have been inspected,
and by the close of navigation over
40,000,000 bushels will have been
delivered at the lake front.
" In addition to the^wheat, there is
estimated to be 111,000,000 bushels oi
other grains.
"As wheal at the preBeut time fs
worth over one dollar a bushel, and
oats 39 cents, it requires no expert
mathematician to figure out tbe
enormoUB amount ol money that is
flowing into the Northwest, and
British Columbia must ol necessity
benefit by the prosperity of the Northwest, as tbe people of tbe prairies
require your lumber, flab, Iruit and
other products.
" Now tbat conditions are settled
through the termination ol the elections, I look tor a period of prosperity
and tbe prospects for immigration
into Canada are splendid.
" British Columbia is now attracting the attention ol every one and in
addition to tbe recognition ol this
province's magnificent resources ol
minerals, timber, etc., but fisheries,
fruit and agricultural possibilities are
being rapidly realized.
" I bave beard tbe argument that
your timber should be preserved, and
while I believe you bave a very valuable asset in this which it would not
be wise to sell too cheaply, still it
must be recognized tbat as your
timber is cleared off you will have
muob fertile land suitable for agriculture. As tbe timber is cleared
from tbe valleys the immigrants will
flow in and occupy those vacant
spaoes and in time build up an agricultural province that will be the
envy ol the world, for it is well known
tbat the richest nations are the
agricultural nations."
Mr. Bury has purchased a farm in
tbe Okanagan Valley, anticipating
higher prices in the neat future.
wayB. The strangest part of it is tbat
some of the oldest miners—those who
have been engaged in ibe business for
years—are as nften, if not must frequently the victims nf these careless
practices. There are methods of
thawing dynamite that, involve little
danger, hut do require a little troulile,
and failure tu take the pains which
secure- safety in probably the canee of
many accident* uf this nature.
HAS EXCELLENT PROPERTY
Revelstoke Men Interested in
Queen Charlotte Islands.
A recent arrival Irom the North,
says the Vancouver Province, waB Mr.
Fred C. Elliott, a lawyer ol Revelstoke,
who is interested in Borne mining properly at Tassn Harbor on tbe WeBt
Coast if the Moresby Island. Associated with bim in tbe euterpise are
Mr. Thomas Taylor, M.L.A., of Uevel-
Btoke, Arthur (lowing, nn old Kootenay mining mini, ami J E. Corlctt, of
Seattle.
The property was located from in-
lor.iiatiou received from tbe Indians
Mr. Elliott buying out the interests
of the aborigines, aud so far several
parallel ledges from 0 to 00 feet wide
have been stripped. Tbe mineral is
gold and copper, assaying $4 80 in
gold and giving 18 per cent copper.
It is self fluxing with a little silica
and 30 to 40 per cent of iron.
Under the command of T. R. Davey,
an English mining engineer, a torce
of men is at present engaged in de
velopnient work, building trails, cab-
inB, and driving tunnels.
Most of tlie prospectors are staying
in for the winter, Baid Mr. Elliott, and
active development work is going on
at all the claims.
Mr. Elliott predicted a brilliant
luture Ior the Charlottes and said the
Moresby Island Lumber Company had
nearly completed its mill at Queen
Charlotte City.
Dynamite Thawing Season
The powder-thawing season has
arrived, and the press will be called on
to chronicle tbe usual number of
accidents and fatalities due to the
careless banuling of nitro-explosiveB.
Witb the long list ol premature
explosions that have deprived men of
bands, arms, legs, eyes, and often
their lives, miners continue to carelessly thaw dynamite in the oven ol
tbe cook stove; on the blacksmith
forge, on the top ol the boiler, in tbs
engine room, in their bootlegs; over
the open fire,   and  in   other reckless
Mining in B. C.
Mining has long beeu British Col
umbia's most important industry,
looked at Irom tbe point oi view of
annual production. In tbis respect it
is still far in the lead, and this, too,
notwithstanding thai the mineral
resources of the province as a whole
have not yet been very extensively
developed.
As exhibiting the importance ot
mining in British Columbia in comparison withoiber stap'e industries of
the Province, tbe following approxl
mate summary ol tbe value of tbe
production of the several more important industries d iring the two
years last past is submitted:—
Lumbering I 22,000,000
Agriculture    15,600,000
Fiaheries    15,000,000
Together 152,500,000
Minerals     51,000,000
Manufactures      23,500,000
Total $ 127,000,000
These figures show tbe mining
industry to have contributed 40 per
cent, ol the total production, including manufactures.—Mining World.

WINTER PASTIMES.
Revelstoke Snow Shoeing and
Ski-ing Club Formed.
A general meeting of the citizens
was called in the city hall Wednesday
evening, the 1 It It inst., for the formation of a club in these two moet enjoyable ot winter spurts.
Unfortunately, the evening was badly
chosen for the meeting, being the evening before tbe elections aB well as the
night of another public meeting, hut
the date was the only one available
for the hall. However, a good attendance resulted under the circumstances
The meeting was called to order by
B. R. AtkiuB at 8:80, with the following present: Rev. C. A. Procunier, Mr.
and Mrs. Atkins, Mr. and Mrs. Teller,
Misses Spurling, Foote, White, Messrs.
Barber, Bctbune, Stark and Hagar.
Kev. C A. Procunier was appointed
as chairman pro tern and L M. Hagar
as secretary.
Rev. Mr. Pioounier opened the meeting with a few remarks relative to the
wholesomeness of the sport and out-
dour exercise, calling on Mr. Atkins to
explain lhe objects fnr which the meeting was called.
Mr. Atkins, a well known enthusiast
on the virtues of suowshoeing as a
spurt, enlarged on the enjoyments
which could only be the outcome in
the formation of the proposed club ai.d
the sociability to be derived by having
the ladies numbered tiling the members.
The ski ing section iu connection
would allow full scope for the many
daring devotees to this sport.
lt was unanimously voted to form
a olub with a membership of ifl, members to supply tbeir own skiis and
Btiitwsliiics. The secretary was request
e.l to write fur prices at which these
articles could le supplied.
The following ollicers were elected:
B. R. Atkins, President; J. Guy Bar
ber, Secretary-Treasurer.
Mr. Aikins suggested two divisions,
one fur siinwshoes and one for the
skiers, proposing F. B, Wells as captain witli Miss Spurling as vice for
the ski-jug, with 0. It. Macdonald and
Mrs. EIboU in similar ollices for the
snowsboers. A. F, I*. Lace was proposed as whipper-in to belated tramp
ers, and Mr, Betbune in the same
otlice witb a lirst aid to the injured fur
skiers. These officers named to act as
an executive for tbe season.
Mr Hagar gave an outline of what
possibilities there were for enjoyment
and pleasure to the members. A clubhouse will be selected, where a rendezvous can be made at 4 30 in the after-
n ions ior the ooooa and cake, to then
march home after a well spent alter-

GOVERNMENT
FARMSCHEME
Earl Stanhope will Recommend
Gigantic Plan to People this
Province with Best of British
Unemployed.
Winnipeg, Nov. 13.—The Earl ol
Stanhope stated yesterday that he had
gone weBt in September with Earl
Grey and had visited southern British
Columbia and Alberta, touching at
Nelson, Grand Forks, Penticton, Vernon and other points. He was persuaded that British Columbia did not
by any means appreciate what valuable assets it had. It was full of undeveloped resources, which would some
day prove of the highest value and
importance. The fruit which was
produced in the valleys of Southern
British Columbia was unsurpassed by
any that be had tasted from any part
of the world. He referred particularly
to apples and peaches.
Tbe matter into which Lord Stanhope is looking during his trip, is the
practicability of the establishment in
in the coaBt province by the British
government of an extensive farm
colony in which large parties of
British people could be placed. It
was the idea ol the visitor that a
large number of unemployed might
be brought to Canada in vessels
owned by the government uud that
the govern ment Would be responsible
for tbem. As tbey were able these
colonists could leave the farm of the
government and begin to work for
the farmers of the country, or go on
land ol their own. If they weie
wholly unsuitable tbey could be taken
back to the mother country. The
plan, if tried at all, the earl snid,
ought to be tested on a large scale.
It would cost a large sum, but the
resulting advantage Would he great.
He would bring it to the attention ol
the government on his return to
England.
