Stirring Addresses by Orange
Grand Officers.--The Power
of the Pope Denounced.-
Meeting Well Attended.
A large number of Orsngenien and
ottierB interested in the organization
attended at the Opera House last
night in hear the addresses by Mr. J.
W. Whiteley, provincial organizer of
the Orange Order and Riv. R. J,
Mclntyre, provincial gra d chaplain.
The Rev. W C. Calder took the chair,
and after express-big pleasure at the
number present, especially the ladies,
wbo could do much to help the Order,
proceeded to explain the origin and
objects of the Orange Order and show
why it was unpopular and misunderstood by many Protestants. Tne Order
was not formed to attack or abuse the
Roman Catholics but to offset Rome
in her politics and the Orangemen are
called upon to stand by each other
when ibis becomes necessary. A good
work in being done for the country's
benefit. Touching on politics, he eaid
that the L. 0. L.was independent and
stood for honest, clean govern ment, no
matter which party Wss in power.
Honest, independent, nun party men
were essential f.'r the welfare of
Canada' He affirmed that the Province of Quebec was controlled liy the
Pope nnd was a menace to the liberties of Oaimd i and pointed out that
the Order would opp sse Rome in lier
schemes for political control of Can-
da. He accused Sir Wilfrid l.aurier
as being in the bands of the Italian
prelate which was a revolting iilea to
the liberty-loving public of Cuna'lu.
The Orange Order was religious and
made men faithful and good citizens.
He denounced those who claimed thnt
the Order was n drinking one uud
explained tbat it upheld civil ai.d
religious liberty. Ilecomplained that
the 12th of July meetings were net
taken more interest in and said that
the meetings should be held in a hall
and not in the open air. In conclusion he urged that the people carry
on the noble work ol tbeir predecessors who had sacrificed all for
litieity's lake,
J. W. Whiteley thin proceeded to
explain the work that the Order waB
carrying on, elating that he was organizing new lodges and reviving ones
thit had goi e down. He denied that
there were any obligations in the
Order which would be antagonistic to
fellow citizens and explained that the
12;h of Julv was nut intended to
abuse or insult the Roman Catholics
but rather a celebration of tlie securing of religious and civil liberty. The
Orange Order was not a political one
beyond certain actions relating to the
liberty ol the people. It supported
principles liist in government and
stood only for clear, independent rule.
He pointed out that the Order was
unfairly criticized and vehemently
affirmed that there was just aB much
need for tbe Order as uf old since
Rome is workiug just, as powerfully if
more secretly to secure her ends. Mr.
Whiteley then read several extnets
f om the Roman creed showing its
objectionable ideas and explained that
the Order did tot object so much to
Rome's spiritual as to her temporal
power. The Roman Catholics were
40 per ceut. il tbe whole population
of Canada and the Pope bas power to
absolve these from obeying the civil
laws, which thing Rome has put into
practice in (Quebec. Borne plays upon
the superstitions ol the people and
educate them so far as they think tit.
Mr. Whiteley then gave several
instances of Human control during
elections in the east. He denounced
the sale ol indulgences and pardons
for crimes and explained bow Rome
had killed and tortured her people fur
not fully obeying her faith. Rome
demanded that her people must have
no mind of their own, but do what
ever she tells them; tbey must not
think fur themselves, but must be
absolutely submissive soul and body
under penalty of persecution for any
He urged that a Protestant premier
be placed over the Dominion who
would give equal rights to all churches
He pointed out that already one-thiid
ol tbe Canadian people were under the
power ol the Pope, which power was
spreading westward. He showed bow
tbe balance of power in Canada was
held by the Roman Church, hy colonization agencies in Alberta, etc., and
that education had been made too expensive in these provinces so that the
poor people could do nothing but submit,     lu   conclusion he urged all tu
checkmate Rome by joining the Order
pointing out that Orangeism stood for
imperialism and close contact with a
Protestant King. There were 55
lodges in B. C. and with a total membership of 2,000,000 all over the world
and the Order was progressing.
The  Kev.   K. J.   Mclntyre on rising
enlarged on   the   great  and rich heritage of the Canadian people. He urged
that Rome must not dominate Canada
nor th.  pi' plo bj rulod and persecuted
l by   I'.|i ■    iftei living   corrupt   lives.
The    P. j' y     was    the    reeuguized
enemy of liberty in the early days and
people turned to   William to   destroy
the power of  Rome and England
from    the   terrilile    Papal   iitllnences
The   Orange   order   booh   spread and
grew, being   established    for   lhe free
doni of thought., speech and conscience.
RiniHii Catholic  children are brought
up to obey the Faith, and believe that
Rome   cannot   err   in its teacbing or
workings and the people must not. think
for   themselves   but obey the voice of
the  priests  on all issues.    Mr, Mclntyre urged that religion cannot be pro
pagated  by  force  and went ou to ex-
pltiin   the  frauds  of   indulgence and
prices paid for forgiveness of sins.   He
denounced   tho   practice  of transub
stantiation  a<   ridiculous and pointed
out   huw   ninny   countries   liml sunk
under the Romish doctrine   "Canada,"
he said,   "will   lake   her  place among
the greatest, nations il   proper ri lig'ou
is   used."      The   English    throne   is
fou,.iti it   on   Protestantism   aid   the
Battle uf  the li yne was a triumph i.f
mode n or mediaeval rule.      He urged
all   to   stand   true   to just principles.
The Orange Order will  m.ik i 'e men
in the coming   el, ci tons nnd   if   their
principles   are   good, the   Order   will
support   them   whatever   party   tbey
belong lo.    Iu conclusion he snid that
the Pope   must   never   be allowed to
dictate tbe laws of Canada.
An interesting programme of music
furnished by Mesdames Dent, Bews,
Cameron, and Misses Byrd and .McKinney, and Mr. Leleaux between the
addresses was much appreciated. "God
Save the King," brought au interesting
meeting to a close.
Strikebreakers Too Free With
Revolvers.--The Situation
The freedom with which revolvers
arc exhibited by C.P.R, strikebreakers
and their special police is declared by
the strikers to bo one of lhe most
aggravating features of tbe strike.
Apparently every man employed in
the shops considers it necesBury to
carry a weapon uud they try to throw
awe in the hearts of the strikers by
tightening their coats so as to show
the pickets the outline of Iheir re
vulvers, or tiy throwing b*ck tlieir
emits so that tbey can sec the butts.
The rase last week of a Bo-called
special constable who without any
apparent provocation drew a gun on a
trainman in the yard precincts has
created particular interest. At the
preliminary invBtigation, after the
constable bad been charged with
drawing his gun, there was nothing to
show that he had had any cause and
also it was proved that tbere was a
doubt about his being a C. P. R. constable at all. The trial was postponed
in order to give him time to prove
that he was still acting in his official
capacity. At the second hearing it
appeared that the man had been
employed by the C.P.R. as a speci. 1
constable, but bad resigned. Evidence
being doubtful the man was lined 1)125
and ousts, and his revolver, which was
a handsome weapon, cnuliscaied.
Engine 914 took a little spin on its
own account at Kamloops ou Sunday
and landed nose first in tho turntable pit. Engine 400, after taking
about six weeks fur light repairs in
the shops, left Vancouver for North
Bend with a train, and it took tier
nearly 15 hours Ior the trip. She
came back light and occupied 12
hours for a trip that usually takes
Irom Ave to six hours.
Tbe Winnipeg board of trade is
pressing the government to force tl e
railroad company to transport grain,
which, it is alleged, is blockaded in
many sections.

Hamilton', Ont., JSept. 30.—-The
worst wreck in llie history of the
Toronto, Hamilton and Buffalo
railway occurred at 0 o'clock yesterday morning near Mineral
Springs, a nhort distance east nf
Copetown, a train crashing through
a bridge which had been burning.
Three men were killed and one
seriously injured nnd thousands of
dollars worth of rolling stock and
freight wrs destroyed.
Toronto, Sept. 30.—A fatal
wreck on the C.I'.R. took place at
Islington Saturday when two
freights collided in a fog. James
Kendall, of Chatham, was killed.
He was fireman of the eastbound
St. Paul, Sept. 30.—In spile of
all contradictory reports concerning the purchase of the Chicago
Great Western by the C.P.R. the
transfer is now accepted as a certainty, and the passenger department is busy preparing new maps
and time cards corresponding to
the ,; Soo " line connections here.
Victoria, Sep1 30.—Mr. Joseph

intention of being a candidate in

Cheap   Power  Wiil   Soon Be
Supplied Throughout City     '
Rovelstoke can soon lay as just a
claim to tlie name • ( the Electric
Citv as Nelson can, and now that the
electric power lias been installed the
possibilities as 11 its use and convenience both in ll-. factory and
home are practically illimitable.
Among the ninny articles that can be
operated by electricity in the home
are tea kettles, chafing dishes, warming nans, hot water and coffee urnr,
broilers, sad irons, disc beaters, stoves,
toasters, polishing iron , ovens, radiators, percolators, sterilizers, nursery
bottles, immersion coils, sewing machines, motors, cignr lighters, and last
but nut least, curling irons; iu fact a
thousand and one useful and time and
dirt saving devices for the home and
odice. After all it i. a question of
cosl and what cost means in this
connection is well illustrated by the
following statement as to what one
cen t'B worth of electricity will do:—
It will operate a small smoothing iron
(or 45 minutes or a large household
iron Ior 25 minute., It will boil
water live times -r wiiiin milk ten
times ii. a pint water he ter. It will
run a ti-inch s-tove for 15 minutes or a
dialing (list) during one operation It
will percolate IS cups of coffee, run a
broiler live minutes, keep a warming
pan hot for two hours, run a 16-inch
fan or two hours or heat a curling iron
every duy for a month, etc. If the
aim if the eity is backed by citizens
and ot the civic authorities make it
north the peoples' while to buy power
a tui use it as afore mentioned there is
indeed little doubt that the birth of
Rev.lstoko as the '■ Electric City " is
not very far off.

during whioh time he made a complete tour of the company's lines in
Western Canada. Thero is evidence
everywhere, he says, that thia year's
splendid harvest is bringing back prosperity to the west, but thero is no evidence of any boom, nor is there likely
to be.

The court of revision has flnislnd
its labors and few if any of the people
besides companies and corporations
doing business and having land in tlie
city limits have bad any specific or
real n ason for complaint against the
manner in which Assessor Kield lias
done his work. The roll bad practically to lie entirely revised. The land
values and assessments generally have
been raised and tbe increase uver last
year   is   considerable.     The    C.P.R.
assessment was satisfactorily arranged
and sbuws a big increase, tbe bedding!
etc., a|»rt from the hotel and residences uu the hill, being assessed at
$57,400, ur an increase over last year
of 111,400. The land has correspond"

As regards the ana*, ss in eut on property outside the city limits for sohool

Discussion   about    encouraging
industry i? too often indulged in
without considering the character
of the industry or the nature of
the encouragement. If Kevelstoke
wants to make the progress s-he
should in Ibe commercial tiekl she
will have to hustle and advertise
far more than she is doing at
present. There is not the least
[jarticie of reason that our city
Bhould take a hack seat ami allow
others who possess a community
energetic and pushing enough to
blow their own horn,to walk ahead
oi Us and make a name for them-
•i-lves. No stone should In- left
unturned hy our people to place
Revelstoke ig big letters liefore the
world and what other Kootenay
towns have done, surely we can do,
and go one better. And yet the
Consideration of whether a new
industry is good or had, and if
good, whether it is encouraged in
a good or had manner, i- essential
to the attainment of the hen results The greatest good, not
merely of the greatest number, hut
of all, is the only excuse for a
municipal government in any
manner encouraging any industry
whatsoever. The manufacturing
of food products, wearing apparel,
of building supplies anil necessaries
are therefore of paramount importance. To Fpcure theso industries in the city, the hest bonus is
municipal cheap power, which
Kevelstoke now possesses and which
inlucement to industrial establishment should not he hidden from
the commercial world through lack
<if advertising.
One of  the principal  subjects ol
discussion   which   came up before
t'ie convention of  the Alberta and
i_UterD P.. C. Press   Association at
Nelson last week was that relating
to patent medicines, their use anil
abuse, as well as the great responsibility tlmt newspapers assumed
in advertising such medicines to
the public. In many cases has the
patent medicine advertisement been
instrumental in bring ng about the
exact opposite of what it was intended should happen antl newspapers, in a measure, arc indirectly
responsible for the harm that has
often resulted. If statistics could
only he obtained it would undoubt
edly he found that patent medicines have slain their tens of
thousands. The very way these
patent medicines are worded leads
impressionable people to imagine
themselves arlltcted with ills they
do not possess. Especially amongst
children arc the ravages of this
modern Moloch to be found. Worn
en with ailing children, and especially those unable to prociv-u the
services of a physician, rush to the
store und purchase thut which
often seriously undermines the
health cf their offsprings, if indeed
it has no immediate evil effect.
The sale of these remedies should
be so regulated as to protect the
unsophisticated against the wiles of
the fakir who makes his fortune
out of gullible men, women and
children. There are valuable specifics which need never fear the
light of investigation.

moral tone of the country. He de-
I reca'ed the idea of regarding a newspaper ns a mere money getting
proposition. That wsb wrong, although of course it was necessary to
the life of a real newspaper tbat it be
a success financially. It was letter
though to own a small plant free of
dibt than a large one heavily encumbered, wbicli meant thut tbe policy of
the paper was controlled by others.
God pity the editor who found himself iu tbst position.
The papers which had scored the
greatest successes were those which
had the courage of tbeir convictions.
While the editor of a paper should be
one of lhe .!euding men of the town,
often he was not. Tbis was due chiefly
to bis being tied up with some clique
or party.
Comparing newspapermen to clergymen, Mr. Elton Baid that the influence
of the former ou tbe community was
much greater than tbat of the latter.
While tbe clergyman spoke to a
limited number two or three times a
week, the editcr's worda went broadcast over the country every day.
Following the discussion on the
address it was decided that the next
annual meeting should be beld in
Edmonton nut later than August of
next year and the following ollicers
were then elected.
Honorary president, F. J. Deane,
Ne'son; president, Capt. T.B. Thomas,; lirst vice-president, F. VV.
Galbraith, Red Leer; Becond vice-
pres dent E. Hagel, Lethbridge; third
vice-president, H. Cunningham Morris, Revelstoke; secretary-treusurer,
D. H. Elton, Raymond.
Executive committee. R. C. Edwards, Calgary; A. Wylie, Clareaholm;
F. A. Scbooley, Lacombe; A. B. Watt,
Edmonton, and F. J. Smyth, Moyie.
On Friday morning the editors were
taken by tbe Board of Trade aud city
officials to inspect the power plant at
Bennington Falls, which trip waB
much eujuyed, the delegates express
ing keen admiration for tbe magnificent machinery and the enterprise of
the Kootenay people. The alternoon
session was taken up with special
question and other matters relating
to the welfare of the press. Resolutions
expressing appreciation of tbe welcome and entertainment by the city
of Nelson as a whole and to the C.P.
R. for their concessions were adopted.
Tbe following important resolution
was passed :
" That we. as an association, believe
that it would be to the better intereata
of the craft of printing if, in tbe
future, all government and public
printing be done in Canada, and
where possible, eaeh province abould
do all in ita power to encourage tbe
art ol printing within ita own provincial limits."
Tbe editors were conducted through
the Fair by the president and secretary of the Board of Trade and
expressed surprise at the wonderful
resources of the Kootenays aa instanced by the splendid exhibits.

Steamship line with respect to Jlte
ratea and other little matters of dispute between the two parties. Tho
attempt was so far unsuccessful that
the parties separated without, coming
to an agreement, hut the spurt of
moderation and (sir play manifested
during the discussion alfurdid grounds
for tbe belief that further negotiations
might be attended with mote suspicious results, and recently Captain
Walsh, representing the Canadian Pacific Steamships, and Mr. William I,
Gear, representing the Robert Reford
Company, Ltd., went down to St.John
to have a further talk will the 'long
shoremen. The issue justified th
hope that hud beeu entertained; the
'longshoremen after bearing all the
arguments and explanations of th"
other P'do voluntarily undertook 11
accept ii i te ot 30 cents per hour (or
both day I night work, and a contract covett ,g a period of live years
was diawn up to that ellcct.
We congratulate the companies, tlie
'longshoremen, and the public of St.

and the inauguration of a period of

know, is so di astiiius ti the interests of a, ami all connected with
it, sb ihe perpetually recurii g differences betwc.ti employers and em

rise. This cripples the energies of the
shipping companies, and debars them
from undertaking progressive improvements which i hoy ivouldJotln-rwiBe be
only too glad for their own sakes to
enter on; apart from tlie loss ol earn
ings during the actual strike, it
inflicts inconvenience nud pecuniary
loss on Ihe 'longshoremen themselves,
whose credit with the retail traders is
impaired by the uncertainty in the
amount and tenure of their earnings;
and it curtails Ihe business of the
retail, and, through them, ot the
wholesale nouses. As in every other
walk in life, a condition of uncertainty
aud instability has consequences that
are as far-reaching aa they are injurious.
But now, thanks to the conciliatory
spirit of the C.P.R. and the intelligence and moderation of the 'longshoremen, the port of St. John is
about to enter on a period of five
years' peace and stability which cannot fail to give it a strong impetus on
the. road to progress and prosperity.
Too great credit can scarcely be given
to the negotialois on both sides which
have brought about this happy result,
nor t o warm congrst illations to the
port which will pr fit by it. It would
be well for the Dominion if a similar
state of things existed in all her seaports; well for Quebec if tlie example
is taken to heart aud imitated.

There were over ninety mines belonging to the Kootenay section of
the province, together with some
specimens from other districts, represented at the mineral exhibit of Ihe
Nel on fair. The total number of
shipping mineB in the Kootenay is
about 180, the great majority ol which
however, are merely occasional shippers, The representation of the district was therefore more than usually
There was very little, it is held,
allotted to mining in comparison with
the sums spent upon the exhibit of
fruit. Of course, mining is a twice
told tale and the fruit is a newer
attraction aud aa a newer attraction
ia better worthy of help Yet the
mainatay of the country, the reason ol
the existence of the great majority of
the population settled in Kootemiy, it
ia pointed out, is the mining. Mining
produces nind-tenths of the wealth
and is the employer of the great percentage of labor.
Speaking more particularly as to
tbe various mining districts and ores
represented that which caught the
eye of everyone was tbe fine display
of gold ores of Camborne for the first
time represented ot the Nelson Fair
and which were provocative of much
euquiry. Camborne wae represented
by the Ella, Challa, Stockholm, Eva,
SunBB*, Lily, Lucky Jack, Durness,
Eclipse, Beatrice, Maple Leaf, Alma,
Mammoth, Silver Dollar, Nelson and
Copper King eome of which were
shipping properties und others, new
