B. C. Court Imposes a Fine in
Connection with Alien Law
Vancouver, Feb. 28.—An advertise
ment offering Yankee aliens work in
British Columbia wilh tl.e additional
encouragement ol prepaying transpor
tation and providing the aliens with a
lunch basket, is a "contract" wil bin
the meaning of Canada's Alien Labor
Act, and therefore a violation both of
its spirit and its letter, This is the
effect ol Mr. Justice Morrixm's deci
lion in the important case recently
heard against tl.e Mundy Lumbar Co.
Aa one ol the results that extra-provincial Pennsylvania company will
forthwith pay $200 to Mr. Richard
Nichol who was ousted ss a high
priced man when Mr. Slack ol Bradford, Pa, brought himself and a hall
dozen other unskilled laborers to the
company's Revelstoke mills, and proceeded to work for less pay. I'nd.r
the act the penalty is up to $1,000 in
tl.e discretion ol the court. But Mr.
Justice Morrison holds that while S
A, Mundy, tbe president ol the Mundy
Lumber Co.. by that "ad" violated the
act, he was satisfied that he did not
know ol the existance ol the Alien
Labor Aot and that he did not deliberately ignore it. The penalty wae there
fore $200 with costs. 11 was urged by B,
P. Davis, K.C., who fought the case
for the company, lhat under a late
decision the contract made over the
border must be such as to give the
alien a right of actio., against the
company should employment be refused when he arrives, but the court
didn't agree.

ot ministers and much interest was
manifest.d nut only in tbe handromo
new church, which is, without doubt,
one ol the most beautiful in the interior ol liritisb Columbia, but also
in (lis evidence ol substantial develop
ment in the town, and growth in the
congregation under the guidance ol
their .unci, loved pastor, Kev. I).
Rev. J G. Duncan, ol Salmon Arm,
was elected moderator tor the year.
A number of interesting matters
were hetore the Presbytery. CallB finm
Ladysmitl. and Ashcrolt were presented in tavor of Ewing G. Thompson,
who has lately been laboring in Ash
croft. Mr. Thompson decided to at-
cept the call lo Ashcrolt, which was
good news to the Presbytery, and tl e
induction was arranged for Maroh 13,
The congregation ol Firet Presbyterian church, Vernon, made request
that Presbytery grant wish of congre
gation and pastor io have their name
changed to that of St. Andrew's church
which was granted.
Commissioners to the grand assembly which meets in Montreal next
June were appointed a. follows: Revs.
D. Campbell, Logic Eacdunnell, W. A.
Wyllie and J. It. Robertson.
Rev. E. D. McLaren, general secretary ol the Home Mission Committee,
was nominated I ,r tlie ModeratOtship
ol the General Assembly.
Conveners ol standing committees
lor the year were elected:
Home mission, D. Campbell; Foreign
missions, W. L. Macrae; Manitoba
college, J. R. Robertson; .church life
and work, A. W. K. Herdman; Sunday schools, T. O. Miller; Young
Peoples Societies, J. 11. Miller; statistics and finance, W. A. Wyllie;
systematic benificence, C. W. Whyte;

Rev, W. A. Wyllie, showed steady
gains in families, communicants and
large gains in tl.e amount paid to the
missionary funds ol the church, also
tl.e general revenue lor ull support
bad grown.
The report on Young Peoples
Societies hud grown J. II. Miller
spoke ol some good work lieing done
by our y.ung people and ol our new
society which was organized in Knox
church, Ilevelstoke.
The Home Mission report was presented by Rev. D. Campbell, This is
the most important work of the Presbytery aud some interesting matters
nei«*r.t.d. Aslicroft has gone up to
the standing ol an augmented charge
and called a minister alter being on
the Home Mission list Ior a great
many yeara. Nicola, one ol the most
difficult and extensive fields has been
on the Home Mission list for a long
time and has also gone up to the
standing of an augmented charge with
the expectation of calling a minister
in the near luture. Rev. D. K. Allan
is doing splendid work in this district
and is greatly beloved by the people.
Arrowhead is settling down to more
permanent conditions in church work
and the missionary, Rev. E. W. C.
McColl, after being there nearly a year
was requested by tl.e cong.egat.ion to
remain, which the Presbytery gladly
granted. Tlie question ol placing a
gasoline launch on the Arrow lakeB
so that tl.e people all along the lake
shores could be visited by a missionary
was acted upon on the recom.nenua-
tion of Rev. Dr. Herdman. A committee consisting of Rev. J, R. Robertson, convener, with Rev. E, C. W.
McColl, ol Arrowhead, and Messrs. G.
M. Cla.k and A. E. Miller, elders in
Revelstoke, was appointed to cooperate with a similar committee ol
Kootenay Presbytery in Nelson, for
the purpose of carrying this mutter
into effect.
The Presbytery is sending an overture to the General Assembly asking
for the appointment of a superintendent for the Synod of B. C. alone. The
work in the two synods ol B. C. and
Alberta is now lar beyond the talk ol
any one man.
An interesting lunction took place
on Wednesday evening, when the
ladies ol the congregation entertained
the Presbytery to a supper in the
basement of the church, which was
greatly enjoyed by all. Alter this
function a public meeting waa held,
interesting addresses were given by

The Presbytery adjournod on Thursday evening to meet lor its regular
autumn meeting in I'eacbland. j
Resolution in Favor oi Disestablishment and Disendow-
ment of Church Carried by
Large Majority.
LoRnOH, Feb. 28.—ln the House ol
Commons last night a resolution in
favor ol the disestablishment and dis-
endowment of the church in both
England and Wales wa, ml. plnl by
198 votes to 90. This resolution does
not commit tho government, but. Mr.
A. Birrell, chief secretary lor Irehnd,
said he tailed to see hew the continuance ol the established church could
be justified, Pur Irom harming the
church as a spiritual body, disestablishment, he said, would restore it to
a position of spiritu.il authority
throughout the land. The govern
nient's hands, however, were already
too lull to assume any responsibility
in the mutter. This is the lirst time
in its history lhat tho House of Commons has adopted sueh a resolution.
I'he only previous time a similar
resolution wus pressed to a division
was in May 1871 and it was then rejected by a large majority.

to cut a certain amount of timher
off their lund ench year, thus avoiding timber being h'-ld lor speculation and encouraging legitimate
trado, The proposition is one
which must not be handled without
full and due consideration. The
timher licence holders nre in a
great measure responsible for tbe
enormous progress and develop,
ment of the lumber industry. The
incentive to surveys is given at
their instance and the possibilities
of the further development of the
industry is brought to light. It is
due to them that capital has been
brought into British Columbia,
which capital has, and is developing the lumber industry ol the province and inoidently aiding in thc
great march of progress and prosperity. By the passing of bucIi
legislation, the necessity of small
mills would be lelt and in the construction ol such thc work would
not be sufficient to keep the larger
concerns on a paying basis. Labor
being scarce the mills if built could
not be operated and the speculator
failing to comply with tho Government requirements would seek
ways and means of protecting himself, with perhaps detrimental
effects to thc country. Men who
risk capital in enterprises of every
nature should always be protected
by thc Government and they should
not in any way be discouraged
from investing in timber for the
purposo of getting advantage of the
increase in values.

The growth ol a system of combine interests in all lines of business is causing some nervousness
among the retail merchants as well
as among lhe consumers in the
Dominion. The gravity of the
situation is being forced upon them
by the actions of other merchants
and they are justified in viewing
certain demonstrations with concern. It is a regrettable fact how
ever lhat combinations in restraint
of trade are not met in a different
manner than by the means surmised to be planned by retail merchants. It may bc necessary to
meet combinations with other combinations in order to be successful,

The highest wages ever paid on the
coast in Ibe history ol the logging
industry are now being drawn by the
men employed st the camps and even
the incentive ot extra large pay has
tailed to draw forth the number ol
men required to efficiently operate the
camps now running and about to
commence operations.
Logs are just as scarce as they were
two months ago, but judging by the
preparations now being made (or work
in the woods this season, there should
be an ample supply on hand by midsummer, it is estimated by men in
touch with the logging situation on
the coast tbat by the end of next
month not less than a hundred new-
logging outfits will be at work. During the pust month many new donkey
engines and thousands of dollars'
worth ol logging equipment have been
dispatched Irom Vancouver to points
along the coast to the North, an.l
many new camps will be in operation
The review number ol the Canada
Lumberman contains an interesting
account ol British Columbia's lumber-
ing activities in 1906. Tbe article
The most phenomenal phase ol in.
dustrial activity in British Columbia
in the year 1906 was that involved in
the expansion ol the lumber business.
Licences covering 4,000 square miles
ol timber limits were issued by the
lands and works department, almost
twice as many as during 1905, and
nearly 40 per cent ol the whole number that have been issued since the
prnvinco was constituted. The follow-
i ig statistics lor tho past lour years
eloquently tell this story:
Timber Acreage
Licences Issued        Covered
11103  1307     836,480
1904 1421     938,640
1905  2173  1,390,720
1906  4000    5,560,000
East of tbe Cascades, each licensee
pays un annual rental ol $115, and
west ol the Cascades, $140. Those
isiued during 1906 were almoat evenly
divided between the two classes, with
the balance, if any, in favor of the
latter. Taking the average ol the two
sums, therefore, as a basis (127.50),
.ho revenue derived from licenco fees
alone was $510,000. In addition** to
this item there were over 2,000 hand
loggers licences issued Bt $10 each,
making a total of $530,000 derived by
the government from timber licences
l.ist year.
It has been found impossible to obtain complete statistics of the total
production ol lumber in British Columbia, but by one authority it has
been estimated at 600,000,000 leet, or
125,000,000 feet more than in 1905,
This estimate, in our opinion is too
low. A number ol new mills were
completed early in tbe year, and every
mill in the province was practically
glutted with orders lor lumber. The
one great drawback to thc year's
operations was the scarcity ol logs and
labor. In other respects conditions
were ideal,
There was no interruption to the
steady advance in the price of logs.
Nearly every increase made was looked
upon as representing the top notch,
only to bo followed a lew weeks later
by another rise, Merchantable logs
which in the early spring were worth
$7 per thousand, had advanced to $14
belore the close ol the year. The price
ol tho manufactured stock aas likewise increased, but not to the full
measure warranted bj tbo rematkable
conditions. The maximum price ol
rough lumber was $17, which, considering the cost o! Ions, Higher wages,
and the luct that the average mill employee is a much less efficient workmen
than lormerly, cannot leave a large
margin of profit,
The shingle industry also enjoyed a
moderate degree of prosperity
there were periods when thc demand
was not brisk The average price of
shingle bolts was $4.60, while the
manufactured   product   sold   in   the

the battle is becoming fierce. The

side of the retail men, and the retail men in these western towns

this aa it may, wc do not entirely
suggest that a like contingency
will happen in Canada, yet at
the same time, all things are possible and the retail combine is not
beyond possibility. If the wholesale houses can control the price of
produce and the price of the finished article, and the retail associations can dictate as to which firms
the wholesalers may deal with, it
looks as though the consumers may
themselves need to combine to control the price to be paid lor the
necessities and comforts of life.

OP ALL tho women crooks in
world, probably tho most dar-
ing, the most ingenious, the
most versatile, the mosl mysterious, is Mny Sharpe, sometimes
known as May Churchill, und
more widely known simply as
Chicago May.
A year ago May Sharpe was report-
' ed as having died in prison in
France, where she was serving a
sentence for helping to rob thc
American Express Company in
Paris of $20,000. A few months
Inter a clever, though unknown,
womnn assisted "Eddie" Guerin,
imprisoned for complicity in the
Amorican Express robbery, toes-
cape from his living tomb on
Povil's Island.
Now from ltio Janeiro, Brazil,
comes the astonishing news that,
infatuated with Mrs. May Church-
Ill Sharpe, a charming American
widow, a young Englishman of
noble birth, upon being Informed
that sho is none other than Chicago May, a week or so ago,
committed suicide.
How, then, did May Sharpe escape
frnm France? Does ber nam'1,
like that of Guerln on Povil's Island, decorate tho stone upon another's grave? And nfter nil,
was it not she who aided tbe
daring Ouerin in his remarkable
flight from tbo penal rock in the
ALTHOUGH her maiden name
was Mary Vedis, and her husband's name was Sharpe,
"Chiogo May" is best known ^ Mny
Churchill. She has also been called
ni times May Fletcher. May Latimer,
Katie Fitzgerald. May Quorin and
May Miller.
It was under the nnme of Mny Miller, wife of George Miller, thnt she
wns convicted and sent to prison in
France four years ago for her share
in lhe robbery of tho American Ex-i
press Company.
Miller, who saved himself from accompanying Eddie Guerln to Povil's
Tslnml by turning State's evidence, i«
Bald to have died something over a
year ago while still n convict. Hut
om, it seems, cannot believe nil such
reports from French prisons,
"Eddie" Guertn was reported to
hnve dti'ij on Devil's Island, yet during lhc summer of last yoar he turned up In New York, almost n physical wreck, after having made an nl-
' most miraculous escape from that
terrible penal station, once selected
as a living tomb for Captain Dreyfus.
When it was reported that May
Churchill—*bord, dashing and resourceful "Chicago May"—had suc-
cumhed to the terrors of French prison life, most of her former friends
and acquaintances accept wl the report as true.
A few months go a tall, stylish-
looking and handsomely attired woman landed from a Bitish steamship
at Rio, Brazil. Giving her nnme as
Mrs. May Churchill Sharpe, she took
up quarters at one of the best hotels.
Although sho is now nbout M9
years of ago, May Churchill appears
much younger. Her method of Hfe,
her encounters with the police and
her terms in prison have neither fur—
rowi'd her blooming cheeks nor whitened the wonderful masses of her
bronze-red hair.
Of good figure, she is a past-mistress of the art of effective dross. Her
gowns are quietly elegant. Moreover, her manners two perfect, her
speech thnt of a well-educated, correctly bred womnn. Always of magnetic presence, she seldom fails to
bring her men acquaintances to Iter
feet as warm admirers.
Perhaps her fascinating ways and
her knowledge of human nature stood
her in good stood after hor arrival
In Rio. In any event, the woman
known there ns May Sharpe made
the acquaintance of many people of
social consequence, among them a
young Englishman of noble family,
who was residing temporarily there.
Tndewl, ho is said to have become
deeply smitten,, nnd, nfter nn ardent
courtship, Inid his honored name nnd
his fortune at her feet. A few weeks
ago, however, when lie is said to
haw learner! the unhappy truth
nbout the woman who had gained
his affections, ho prnmptlv shot himself.
If not really affected by the trng-j
edy, Airs. Sharpe protended to be. j
and those who knew her in ltio were
under the impression that she intended returning to the United States
or England. Tt is not believed by
the police, however. that May
Churchill will soon venture into any
country where tho detective bureaus
take such a lively in her career or
whereabouts as they do hero ond in

Mary Veohs was horn in New Y'ork

was an Kast Side linker. During her

In time, sho became one of tho

American crooks, and they were
gathered in beiore. they could escape
with their booty.
Guerln was convicted and sentenced
to what was regarded virtually a Uie
term of penal servitude on Devil's Island. Ko human lieing, it was believed, could survive such a term
there. For complicity in the robbery

Special Appeals
DEAR Members of Each and All:
Hero is a chance lu give a cheering word and kindly
help, whether you ate Interested in postcard collecting
or not. We hi.ve Just no.veil from Philadelphia to
Washington. My mother ban given up old ties and associations   uud  ll  Is hard  for an  elderly person to take  up
lire aguln in a Btrango place.
Will the girls everywhere send her it birthday greeting on December 2*1, 1000. when she will he 74 years old?
Please send tho ordinary picture card of local town or
State, as the pretty birthday cards win not give her Imlf
se  much  pleasure as seeing new   places.
When the Idea occurred to me, wo had no thought uf
leaving Philadelphia and mother was just taking Interest
In the new cluoroom, nnd wanted lo help the girls la
sewing and knitting. Now we wili have to start all over
with  the Washington  r-|'-|s.
Please accept mv thanks in advance. Later Mrs, lier-
rlck mav give mo a chance to do su through uur page. Sincerely  yours.

forgotten, a slight would bo Ignored, wero it not galvanized inlo life by discussion.
This Is lho way in which It is done. Thc speakers are
two sisters:
"I was furious nt Jim {their brother) for tho way in
which he talked about your Ruing to Jane Smith's party,"
rays one, "Ilo snid he had thought better of you than to
think you would accept an Invitation lo the house of a
girl who had been so hateful to you us Jane had been."
"Jim would hotter mind his own business," returns tho
othor "lie is always saying nasty, critical things ubout
one of us. He can't even leave our clothe--) nlono. He
lold mother yuu and 1 both luok like scarecrows In our
ntw hats." ,    „
There is a very nice little quarrel ready for Jim.
What has been gained by repeating either remark? Nothing hut hard feelings, Jim had made both hastily, and
lhe best thing to do would have boon lo let them
fall to tbo fjrotmd. Neither was of sufneient Importance
tt, be noticed. Mut there Ihey are, preserved for the Hake
of producing irritation. I have no doubt thai every girl In
Each and All could give me similar illustrations of the
harm that Is done by repenting useless sayings.
Yot In a family there Is a cerlain t^egree of safety
that docs* not exist oulsldo, Whatever disagreeable things
may bo said, (he members of the family nre prclly sure
to uphold tlm character uf one another su far as the outside world is concerned. Hut this is not true when nc-
tjitaintances and so-called friends speak of one another.
Then there often seems to be a eompelilion as to which
can make the story about one nr another nmre telling and
interesting, and truth, loyalty and love go by the board.
Of course, Ihis Is not tl'UO of nil girls, but It is of too
many. J wus much hurt lhe other dav by receiving an
anonymous letter. It did not say anything lu criticism
of me. If It bad, 11 would have heen a struggle between
my vanity and my sense of humor as to whether 1 should
laugh or be ntlgry, Mut It was worse than that. It was
from a girl who helon-^eil to oim of our chapters, and
who wrote to mo disagreeable, critical things nbout nn
tdlleer In the chapter, and then was too cowardly lo -sign
iirr nnme! I don't tloubl that, if I had chosen tn send her
letter to the person she criticised, I could have learned
Who lho writer was; bul 1 don't want in know, It is had
enough to know Ilul Hutu Is In Kaeh and All ll girl who,
having signed her pledge, cuuld so far depart from lt ns
to write such n letter, she easi no reflections upon tho
porsonal character of iho woman she assailed, but sho
hinted at flofeclS, and round fault with her bitterly.
J know J ask a guud deal when I Intimate that thero
should not bo criticism nf any girl, niul I don't exactly
mean that. Sometimes it seems almost Inevitable, when
a person Is In fault, The wrongdoing or the mistake
must bo recognised, Mul. there are ways nnd ways of
doing this, aad, If wo stand ilnn on the plunk of tho
Anti-Gossip League, we can't go far wrong. Suppose you
make a mistake yourself, ll' you are sensible, you will
not bo angered ihal ll should be seen, and, If the comment
upon ll Is kindly, no harm Is done. Wlmt If you have
made a blunder7 Every nne does It, sooner or lalor.
Verv well, lli'Mi try again, nnd lake comfort from the
thought that some of the greatest gifts to the world havo
been founded on mistakes,
Mut it Is quite another matter if your mistake Is flls-
Cinsod unkindly and censured. There Is the sting! And
the- sting I.s Just as keen to others when you do the discussing and the censuring. But do you not see how lhat
would nil disappear if yuu said nothing about any one
else lhat you would not be willing to have said about
yourself In similar circumstances?
Come nnd join, girls! It will ho hard work for all
of us for n white, niid we shall fee] at limes ns though
iv wero gngged. Bul after we once establish the habit,
It won't be so bad. Send me your names, and don't. I

Will you ..le...'.. give me jo.ii opinio i lhc following: If a man-led ...an, ....fortunately married, but upright nml I rui-le ni ovory way. cares for u girl. enro.
for her enough lo respect and honor hor in everything,
and they moot partly Ir. u business u-uy uml nol prlvilloly

duly to glvo ui, those meetings? And Is I. her duly to
" glvo .... Ibo thoi.iU.t (hut she is a bell, to some one who.
although not cqnnl to her In Bocfiii luisltloi). Is far abovo
her In natural nobility, anility and ..Is.. In education?
Ill othcr words, if he lacks ail belli nml sho la nble to
plve 11 in tl.l8.way, ought ho to be left Willi.tut tt beeuuao
he la married? MARV E.
Problems and templntlons of this kind present themselves In a variety of forms, mid, when ihey boar the
semblance of providing needed help, they nro hardest for
the generous person to meet. Hut there is one very
safe saying to ..note In euoh a connection: "It is dangerous playing with edged tools."
Of course, you don'l ihmli tliey nre edged. Hul human
nature Is a queer and unruly thing, and, when a companionship between a Bln.ple girl nnd a man who ls unhappily married Is n source of happiness to both, thoy
ar-. pretty near the danger point. 1 know nothing more
of the rl.oumstn?icos lhnn what Is said In tills letter, and
I would like to know more, In order to replv mon. Intelligently, I would like to know whoso Is the Inult that
the mnrrlage Is unhappy. Is It not perhaps .. case where
consideration and devotion might change affairs? And
even If not, what harm does It do the man tn be unhappy?
May not such .inlia.ipinoss, If taken In the right wny
and borne bravely, do moro for llie devclopm.-..-. of liis
character than any help ii woman to whom he can be
nothing ran possibly bring him? Is he bo weal, that he
cannot lighl his own way? Has l.e no oilier friends who
could give hlm l.oli. and cheer but the one won.;... who
is endangered by his fooling for l.er and hern for him?
These sound like hard sayings, but 1 have seen so
many situations, nnd ll.e end nf all Is lho same. Un-
happiness, worse thun anything thev have known before,
cither because tbey learn lo love nnd must part, or else
because they Irur.i to luve and havo not tho strength to
pari. Tlie only way Is lo sever the companionship, nb-
J.i.-e private meetings and know one another as mero
friendly acquaintances.
I would like the Judgment of some of lhe others r-n
tin's matter, Tell me what vou think of It, girls, married
uuu unmarried.  Think ll over nnd write to mo ahout If.

Development of all Industries
Around Revelstoke.
The last days of the winter lull of
commercial activity are last drawing
to a close and the world of labor will
soon assume the garb ol productive
energy. The winter months have
been spent in planning and scheming
out the course ol action lor the coming spring and summer campaign of
competitive business operations
Every branch of commercial progreBi
has now its planl matured, and already ia the itream ol business representatives spreading all over British
British Columbia, offering the laleit
products, ao essential in thil last
progressing era, to success, to the
retail merchants throughout the
province, to be again displayed belore
ihe novelty seeking public. Tie
commercial year hai opened early in
Revelitoke and the riding in general.
In a brief ipace of time our milli.
which have been closed down for the
winter and have been undergoing
fepairi and improvement!, will once
more anume the busy, side of their
utility and Ihe buzz and hum of the
■aw and tl.e scream ol the logs as they
rapidly tike shape under the keen
edge ol the raw, will soon lie heard
near and far. The coming lesson
promises to be a banner one for Revelstoke; the Big Bend will be even
more lully explained and the rich
natural resources ol that vast oountty
ol incalculable wealth will be developed
with more zest, spirit and enterprise
than ol any previous year. With
efficient meant of communicati. n,
trails, roads and trains, that country
immediately to the north of ub will
make Revelstoke the most important
city ol the interior of the province.
The heavy Bnowfall ol the past winter
will directly affect mining operations,
the beautilul supply ol water, which ii
loeisential ol placer and hydraulic
mining, causing the mines and mining properties to be more lully
developed. Nature, aided by the ingenuity of man, will return her wealth
readily and plentifully 1 And not
only is the prospect of a buiy sus.ui
confined solely to commercial enterprise which necessitates such enormous payrolls to be placed in circulation, but good times, glorloui
olimatio conditions, as are to be lound
only in mountain citiei such as this,
and the incoming ot settlers, prospectors and others who must need
oirculate the dollars—these are Ihe
things w..iol. attract the tour-sis and
home seekers. The tourist trallic
this year promises to be tl.e heaviest
on record, and it is up to the citizen).
and all interested in the welfare of
Revelitoke to get together and
endeavor to attract some ol that
itream ol touriits who will come
eagerly looking tor excitement, novelty
and amusement, to attract them here
an.l give them a good run for their
money. The circulation of coin ii a
great factor in the city's prosperity
and when all iheie thing! are
coniidered, tl.o citizen will leel a
seme ol pride in their oily when iti
lame is spread lar antl wide. There
is a time in the lide ol human affairs
which, taken it its Hood, leads on to
