When your feet hurt, you can't work earnestly or

hurt. It is the "PATRIOT." It is made over stylish
foot-conforming lasts and fits and feels good from the
start. There is no "breaking-in" necessary. PATRIOTS are Goodyear Welts, meaning no tacks, wax
or threads inside to hurt, burn and blister the feet.

The Oxfords fit snug and close around the ankle
and there is no gaping at the sides. An innersole of
ground cork keeps out the dampness. To fully appreciate them you have to wear them. Many styles—all

" Star Brand Family." "Walk on Stars, Same as
We Do."

Lumbermen Make no Profit on
Present Figures
Nelson, April 28.—A largely attended meeting ol the Mcuntain Lumber
men's association was held here yes
terday. A very lull discussion of the
general situation of the industry took
place and the matter of supply and
demand was fairly considered. It was
asserted by a large percentage of the
lumbermen that they did not intend
to start up their mills before the end
of next month or until the crop conditions in the north-west wi re very
further advanced, and some idea could
be had of the harvest.
In any event it was conceded that
the output would be considerably under that of last year, both as to logging and as to manufacture. The
stocks on hand were all produced
under conditions of high priced labor
and it was generally stated hy the
lumbermen as a well known fact that
there was no margin of profit in selling
this lumber at present prices, especially when together with the cost of
labor are considered the high rates of
interest and the fixed charges accumulating on stocks carried over from
I iet year. Hence tbere was no change
made in the present price list. Prices
are thought likely to be firm with a
probable advance in th, near future.
A strong delegation from the coast
mills atteuded the meeting of the
Mountain lumbermen in the afternoon
to discuss the action of tbe Dominion
government in regard to Clause 12 of
the Timber Regulations Act. This
insists on license holders erecting a
sawmill on their limits within six
months and cutting 100,000 feet yearly for every square mile of timber
land held under license. This was
felt to be an injustice as there was no
market opening of any extent in the
northwest and in all probability tbere
would not be nntil such time as the
harvest in those provinces had been
secured. Hence a strong resolution
was passed against the proposed action
and a petition memorialising tbe government, is being drawn up praying
that such sotion be deferred until the
conditions of tbe market warranted
such enforcement.
G. O. Buchanan, president of tbe
Associated Boards ol Trade, addressed
the meeting upon the subject of forest
preservation and kindrej topics, lis
remarks being listened to witb great

Vancouvkk, April 29.—A disastrous

Creek,at the foot of Granville street,
last night, the loss being .$30,000 with
$10,000 insurance. The owners are
Messrs. Robertson A Hackett.
Ottawa, April 29,—The Government intends to take the Civil Service
out of politics, and to that end the
whole service will be brought under
the control of a permanent-commission, as suggested in the Civil Service
Commission's report to Parliament.

Winston Churchill Defeated at
Man-chested,, Eng, April 28—The
northwest division of Manchester, hy
the heaviest poll cast in 20 years, reversing its verdict of 1906 by a majority of 429 votes, unseated as its mem ■
ber of parliament, Winston Spencer
Churchill, liberal, who has been made
president of board of trade in the
Asquith cabinet.
The fight during the past ten days
bad never been equalled in the annals
of the politics of Great Britain.
Among the many influences and
cross-currents at work in this extraordinary contest, it is not wholly beyond
reason to suppose that Mr, Asquith
himself was partly responsible for the
defeat of his young colleague.
The defeat of Mr. Churchill is a
crushing blow to the prestige ol the
government Tbere will be no difficulty in finding for Mr. Churchill a
safe seat elsewhere.

Work of Supposed Incendiaries
—Coal Oil Freely Used
Nelson, April 28.—It was discovered
yesterday.that one of tbe transformers
at the oity power substation bad been
trifled with, and all tbe oil withdrawn,
Taken in conjunction with the partial
destruction by fire ot the city power
substation on Saturday, it has aroused
general suspicion that some evil disposed person t r persons caused the
series of disasters.      ,
There was an examination under
oath before the oity council last night
lasting till midnight of all officials
and outside parties, which resulted in
showing that so far as the car barn
fire was concerned, coal oil bad been
used extensively Some interesting
developments are expected to-day.
Prize Giving and Sporting Exhibition—Popular Event
The Ladies Auxiliary of the Y.M.C.
A held a most successful entertainment yesterday afternoon and evening
in the parlor of the Associttion buildings. The afternoon wae distinctly
the children's time, and the little ones
utter indulging in tea, ice cream and
candies, devoted their time, interest
and cash to the fish pond, where from
the depths of the gloomy recesses the
treasures secured by the youthful anglers caused the greatest deli bt. Appropriate snd pleasing music was provided and th large numbers of people
who kept coming and going during
the afternoon kept those in attendance busy. The oveuing's entertainment drew a large and interested
fathering, and the spacious gymnasium was filled from floor to gallery.
Ice cream and other refreshments
kept the visitors occupied for some
time, the former disappearing like
enow before the summer sun. The
basketball match created much enthusiasm, the competing teams being
the Gym and a C.P.R. piok-up team,
the latter winning by 15 to 10. Tbe
game, though a little rough, was fast
and keen. A feature of the entertainment waa the presentation of the
game and league trophies, wbioh have
been won during the past basketball
season.     His   Worship, Mayor Lind-

Predetermination of Sex
I/un'imjn, April 29—Is there any
law which determines whether boys or
girls shall be born?
Dr. Roinine, a disciple ol Professor
Schenck, alter a statistical study ol
the problem ol predetermination ol
sex, reaches the conclusion in an article in Le Heme, tbat a boy is born
when tbe father is the weaker ol the
parents and gills when the mother is
the weaker.
Dr. Homme declares lhat by the
law of nature, a child resembies the
weaker and not the stronger ot the
parents. Dr. Komme points out tbat
in all countries with mathematical
regularity 105 cr 106 girls are born to
every hundred boys.
There is only one condition under
whieh this proportion is modified and
that ie after a great war.

Montreal, April 28.—The Canadian
Pacific has lost one of its oldest officials when Charles Drinkwater passed
away at his residence in this city after
an illness of only a few days, the result
uf pneumonia, *
Mr. Drinkwater's death will be a
distinct loss to the C.P.R. company
which he has faithfully served for so
many years.
Mr. Drinkwater was perhaps better
known in Ottawa than in Montreal,
as he had beeu in chaige'of the p rlia-
mentary work of the Canadian Pacific
railway from the very beginning.
Mr. Drinkwater was a veteran rail-'

Rule of the Wild Abolished
Kunonton, April 28.—Tlie credit
system that bas been iu vogue in the
North since trader and trapper invaded tlie country has been practically
abolished this yoar and all trading between tbe Indians and halfbreeds and
the white traders is conducted on a
spot cash basis.
The step was taken as a result of
the shortage in the supplies this year,
whioh made tlie traders shut down on
the practice ot giving trappers food
and clothing on tiok until the fall and
trusting to their bringing in a supply
of furs in the spring to settle up tbeir

B. C. Left Bad Taste
I-Ondon, April 28 —In a letter to
the Morning Post, Riidyurd Kipling
has sonic complaints to ninke about
the parochialism of British t'lilumhia.
He says:
"Thinking things over I suspect 1
was uot intended to appreciate the
merits of British Columbia too highly.
Maybe I misjudged. Maybe she purposely misrepresented herself, but 1
seemed to hear more about problems,
crises, and the difficulties of the situ
ation there than anywhere else. So
far as ear and eye could gather the
one urgent problem was to find
enough men and women to do the
work in hand. I forgot those doleful,
unhuinorquB conspirators among the
people who firmly believed in the
place, but, afterwards their memory
left a bad taste in my mouth."

very significant fact can only too
frequently be noted in connection
with what may be termed "hard

is invariably to be seen the numerous packages bearing the elaborate

of many hours pondering of the

dry goods, and other articles. Some
of these things would cost .$50, few
of them less than !. 10. Such shipments are of daily occurrence

to whom a parcel was addressed
has been heard previously complaining, a few days ago, lhat Revelstoke wa6 so dull, and money so

P.O. O'Farrell Eulogizes Shores

Mr. P, 0 O'Farrel, of New York,
who is well known in Toronto and in
cities all across Canada, is perhaps
the most intimate friend in America
of T. P. O'Conor. When "Tuy Pay"
was iu Toronto last year Mr. O'Farrell
was his bodyguard and bis inseparable
companion on bis American tour. In
the latest issue ol T. P.'s Weekly appears a letter from Mr. O'Barrell describing the beauties ot Halcyon, B.C.,
and it will interest many ol our readers
who know—or Bhould know—the Arrow Lake country.   He writes:
Twenty years ago, when 1 lirst sailed
over the lonely waters ol the Arrow
Lakes, there was not a house, or a hut. I have trails cut through Ihu nestles np

The weather   is   perfect   and   tbis

will Ise vastly increased.    The fears
that there would lie  a  shortage   of
seed have  proved   unfounded,   the
supply of gix.id ijiiality lieing ample
for all purposes.     The pros|iectH of
a big grain crop   will  result  iu   a
bigger demand for building material.    Already reports have it that a
record amount of building will   be
done in every part of the West.   In
reference tu railway building, officials state   thai  everything   that is
needful   will  lie   attended   to.    As
regards labor conditions, there will
be   work for every   honest white
man who aims  to give an honest
day's work for an honest day's pay.
But,   better than  this,   there are
unlimited possibilities for the man
who is willing to forego the superficial  pleasures  of city   life, aad
taboo  booze,    late   nights,   green
cloth, snd  scarlet fabric and get
into business  on   his   own  hook.

Advices from London, England,
state that the United Kingdom is
experiencing remarkable weather.
Snow has fallen in London every
day since last Monday and the
thermometer has been down to the
freezing point. Heavy falls of
snow in the north have caused
serious floods and the heaviest
blizzard in the annals of Sussex
and Hampshire has lefts its disastrous mark, the snow in places
being 5 to 6 feet deep. Traffic on
street and railway has been practically suspended in many parts and
trains have had to be dug out of
deep drifts. In spite of the proverbial cold and snows which are
always supposed to characterize
Canada, we think that after all our
climate, especially in the West, is
second to none. We have emerged
from a winter of comparative!

the mountain slopes. After crossing the mountains the wind Iuih

which we recognized some Kootenay
Indians because of tbe uncanny and
most melancholy chant that fell upon

among them and taught them this
chant, and this was their weird interpretation of it. But save these few

died as heroes and have been buried in
remote frontier graves, and one e'.nld

large-hearted  and   self effacing.      The

The Story of the Growth of One
of British Columbia's Best
Known Manufacturing Concerns.
By c.mrtesy of the proprietor we
are ah'c to give our readeis a few
vii'Ws of one of the most interesting
industries being established in our
city. Just four years ago, Fred
Lynch enfired the commercial Held
in a small way in .New Westminster,
B. C , with which this article deals, as
will be seen by the 1'nst picture of the
•ooompanyiug   views,   with   no   one
else but Mr. Louis Witt and "Pat"
Feeney, of lacrosse fame, to comprise
the staff that were to make famous
the " Beaver." and " Fritz " brand of
After a year ol hard work the Beaver
factory was transferred tn Sixth street
and hero we see, along with our eld
friends, some seven of the best cigar
makers in B. C.' To work up to such
a number in  this  sin it   time   means,
dor which keeps the manufactured
;cii;iir again at the same temperature
il< efore manufacture. At the Beaver
I factory there is now in ilm neighbor
i h ml of one hundred bales ol Havana
which when made up will amount to
; two million cigars.
In selecting workmen Mr, Lynoh
exercises most particular care, ami it
h is now become a well know I fact
atiiongoigar .sen that one who has
w irkrd at the Beaver Cig ir factory is
i ligi de f's- any job in the business,
Tu-d-iy   thoro   it   working   at   lie
B    ver factory u s ufl' ol the very   best
ci.jar   niakeis   that   can   hu   had  in
I Uritish Columbia, and from this  la",
I i-iimbiiiid with the principle that good'
goods are I heir own best advertitemeut
1 it can be easily he   seen   by   lhe   phenomenal increase hi the s' IV of the
Heaver factory as shown  in  ihe last,
inline, lhat. Fred hss ' ecu   I'eliveting
goods.    Such energy on the part of the
joungest cigar manufacture! •   in   the
province is deserving of eiery support.
To give an idea of how much can be
accomplished hy hustling, we may
say that when the inland i even ne
inspector went over the books at this
ia, toi) be found that there b d bee1'
nine hundred tlo.isand Denver and
Fiiiz cigars turned out for last year
This nu nits that 11 fteen thousand
dollars was paiil in wages, whioh is,
without, doubt, in advance of any,
even the oldest established firms in
the province.
Mr. Lynch is at present, completing
a Une, up-to-date factory in Revelstoke, on a lot purchased some time
ago and intends to supply the Kootenays, Boundary and south trade Irom
Revelstoke, whioh he considers the
brat distributing centte iu the Interior.
Every  ci'iz n  will   ecli-s  the   wish
hat Fred   nay   make   the   '.'Beaver"
Bret ol ah, tbat the goods must be
right, for it must be remembered that
each one of these workmen make from
two hundred and fifty to three hundred and fifty cigars each day.
In this up-to date factory we have
every appliance (or the better handling nf tobaccos and cigars, as the raw

The famous Giant's Causeway in the
north ol Ireland, familiar to every one

leal does not vary nor lose any ol its
fragrance. Then when the Havana is
taken out and put through the process ol nun ufacture which, by the
way, is a very interesting thing lb
witness, the made cigar is packed in
their Iwixes and put away in a  Iliiini

are to be packed in cases and shipped
to Philadelphia.
This latest example of American enterprise is arousing considerable oppo*

Time to Find
Vancouver, April 28.—A report
that has all the earmarks of authenticity has just been received by way of
Hazelton, and is the most encouraging yet heard regarding the Findlay
river district. The find was made on
the wordings of the three Condi;
b-oth' is. ThiSi men were working
last summer ou Mansou creek and
cleaned up seveml thousand dollars.
They weie anntig the li st to st.rl on
the stampede for ihe Fi. dlny river
country ai d bey a.ie so satisfied with
tlie risiilis so far that thiy will stay
witn the property ibis summer and
let lhu Manson creek property lay
i Ue. Thi y have not yet struck bed
r.iok, but they have plenty of showings
of rini'se gnld, black sand and iron
boulders. The m n who brought the

Strenuous Journalism.
These be itrenuous days for newspaper men in every part ol Canada.
On looking over our exchanges we
find lhat we are not the only one who
hss lor some reas in got on the wrong
side uf the eily council, on one occae
ion recently and lieeti liauled ,,ver the
coals by them.
I'p in I .acorn be an alderman lambasted the editor's face at a council
meeting last week. Down in lethbridge the editor of the News, dsass
not openly charge graft but iu a nice
way insinuates that the alderman
receives patronages which savor* very
much of graft. In far Hsskatoon an
alderman has brought action against
the editor of the Phoenix, for libel,
while up in dear old Calgary, that
hotbed of political intriguea, bum
baseball and lake prize flgbta, the
Herald and Alhertan wage war over
their sworn circulations. Truly, tbo
life of an editor is not an i nvi ible one.

Revelstoke Old Timer Passes in
His Last Cheque
There passed away on Saturday last
in the person of John Bourke, one ol
the old time residents of Revelstoke,
and one who has seen snd watched
the growth ol Revelstoke from the
time when the first clearing for a town
was hewn out of the forest. The de
ceased wae one of the earliest pioneers
of tbis district and was well acquainted
with the local conditions from the
time tbat any business was first carried on in the town. Mr. Bourke (or
some years wss partner witb G. M.
Field in the hotel business, but afterwards took up ranching in this vicin
ity, where he lived more or less till the
day of bis death which was due to
heart failure. Tbe deceased was well
on in years and had been suffering
considerably previous to his decease.
A large number ot old timers as well
aa friends followed the remains to the
cemetery on Monday afternoon, the
funeral service being conducted by tbe
Rev. Father Coccola.
Activity and Success in all
The.Dominion Exhibition to be held
in Calgary, June 29 to July 9, is being
rushed toward completion as rapidly
as manager Richardson and bis staff
can accomplish it.
There are over one hundred and
thirty-five exhibits already booked in
the various buildings; all the space in
there have been taken up, and applications are coming in by every mail as
well as by wire, The demand has be-
i-oinii so urgent that the manager has
bedded to erect three large tents 28x
56 feet each, and to form into one for
exhibition purposes to accommodate
those who were so unfortunate as to
have lulled to secure space in the
other buildings.
The work on the buildings and
grounds are progressing satisfactorily,
and everything promises to ho in readiness on opening day.

Who's Who!
The II M. S. Egeria arrived at
Prince Rupert last Tuesday after a
very favorable trip from Esquimalt,
says the "North Coast". The Egeria
upon entering tbe harbor saluted tbe
so-called luture terminus of tbe Grand
Trunk Pacific Railway, and uot a
single piece of bunting was hoisted in
return. 'It was quite a different story
though, the previous day wheri the
City of Seattle came into Prince
Rupert, when every flag ■ available
floated in honor of the American
steamer. The admiralty ship will
probably wonder as to who runs
Prince Rupert, Canadians or Americans, snd no doubt will conclude that
its residents are a lot ol farmers instead of ha i bur and railroad engineers.
Insanity and Religion     -
It bas been frequently asserted that
cases of insanity and other nieutal
alllictions are very often caused by religion, Dr. As B Richardson, lately
in charge of the hospital (or the insane at Washington, and now resident
in tbe state of Ohio, however, gives
evidence of a very different character.
In reply to a question by a. person interested in an affecting case ol insanity, he wrote:
"There are only two patients in this
hospital whose insanity has any rela
tion to religion, and I think, from
their predisposition to insanity, tbat
they probably would b»ve become insane on some other subject, il they
had not on religion. Now, if you had
asked me how many people in'Ohio
ar ■ kept by religion from insanity and
out of these hospitals, you would have
given me a question hard to answer,
for they are a multitude. The good
cheer, bright hopes rich consolations,
good tempers, regular habits, and glad
songs of religion are su.b an Antidote
for the causes of insanity tbat thousands of people in Ohio sru preserved
from insanity by them. But for tbe
beneficent inlluence of religion, Ohio
would have to double the capacity of
her hospitals in order to aaconimodate
her insane patients."
