MAJORITY
INCREASED
Conservatives Carry Ontario
by a Far Higher Majority.—
Liberals Secure Twenty
Seats at the Utmost.
Toronto, June 8.—To-day's elections in Ontario resulted in a land
sweep in favor of the Whitney government. In the last House of 98
members, Mr. Whitney had behind
him 70 members, leaving tbe Opposition 28. At the last session tbe
number of seats was increased to 106
The Conservatives thought that if
they were able to carry 70 seats
io to-day's election they would be
holding their own, the increased representation being given to the Liberals. The Government, however, did
better than it anticipated, carrying no
less than 86 seats, leaving 17 for the
Liberals, two seats being in doubt, and
Mr. Studholme, the Labor candidate,
being elected in Hamilton.
All the members of tbe Government
were returned, mostly by a very large
majority, the exception being Hon.
Nelson Monteitb, in South Perth, who
only bas a majority of 30.
The Conservatives carried all eight
seats iu Toronto, and nearly all by
majorities running into the thousands
most of the other candidates losing
their deposits. Tbe best fight was
made by Rev. D. C. Hossack, who was
only defeated by Mr. John Shaw by
about 400.
New Ontario went solidly for the
Government. Though the returns received are not yet fully completed, tbe
majorities sppear to be large.
Liberals were elected in the following constituencies :
South Bruce, North Grey, Haldi-
mand, Centre Huron, East Lambton,
North Middlesex, West Northumberland, East Ottawa, North Oxford,
South Oxford, North Renfrew, Russell,
East Simcoe, Stormont, West Wellington, Soutb Wentwortb.
Mr. Studholme, Labor, was elected
in East Hamilton.
Leeds and Manitoulin are in doubt,
and all tbe remainder of the seats
were carried by tbe straight Government candidate.
Hamilton, June 8.—Warrants were
issued this morning for the arrest of
William Lawson, Conservative Deputy
Returning Officer for Division 37, and
Henry Dillabsugh, Conservative Poll
Clerk, in Division 42. The charge
against Lawson is that be unlawfully
supplied a packet of ballots to Dilla
baugh (or alleged illegal purposes.
Dillabaugh is charged with receiving
same.

QUEBEC ELECTION
Conservatives Make a Gain of
Nine Seats
Montreal, June 9.—The Quebec
general elections which took place
Monday, resulted in tbe return of tbe
Gouin Government by a reduoed majority. The Opposition bad seven
members io tbe last House; in the
new one it will leave 16.
Tbe feature of the new contest was
tbe fight in the St. James Division of
Montreal between Premier Gouin and
Mr. Henri Bourassa, the Nationalist
leader. Tbe Premier was considered
impregnable in tbis division, which he
bas represented for some years, but
Mr. Bouiassa conducted a whirlwind
campaign snd defeated tbe Premier
by 61 votes. Tbe Premier will be in
tbe next bouse, aa be was also a candidate in Portneuf, and was elected
tbere by a majority of 825,
Mr. Bourassa ran for two consistencies, bis second being St. Hyaciuthe
where tbe vote was a tie. The returning Officer will vote for Mr. Bouraisa's
opponent but the prospects are that
Mr. Bourassa will be seated on the
recount.
Aoothei feature was the defeat of
the two Conservative leaders, Messrs.
Leblanc and Pel le tier, the former in
Laval by 17, and tbe latter in Dorchester by a large majority.
Mr. Armand Lavergne, who resigned
his seat in tbe House of Commons to
run lor Montmagny, wss successful.
All the members of the Gouin
government were returned by good
majorities.

MRS. GUINESS
OF LAPORTE
A Wire from Vancouver Asks
if this Notorious and Much
Wanted Lady is at Present
in Revelstoke.
A message was received by the
Mail-Herald yesterday from Van
couver suggesting that it was possible

accused murderess of Laporte, Indiana, was in Revelstoke. The despatch

the prospects of the lady landing here,
nor had be ever received a description
of tbe woman. Neither had be a
photo of the supposed murdress, and
in consequence was not prepared to
say whether that important lady waB
at this very moment iu the city or not.

Joint Delegation from Vancouver
and Revelstoke Boards of
Trade Urge Government to
Build Road from Revelstoke.
Tbe Vancouver World of yesterday
says: "A delegation from Bevelstoke
left for Victoria last night, accompanied by a committee from the Vancouver board of trade. They will place
before the government the necessity ol
building a wagon road north from
Revelstoke to allow supplies to be
taken in from tbat point to the construction camps on the Grand Trunk
Pacific west of the Yellow Head Pass.
"After conferring with the board ol
trade yesterday afternoon and receiving the hearty co-operation of that
body, the Revelstoke delegation hurried to Victoria to discuss the matter
with tbe board of trade in that city.
The Revelstoke party consists of A.
McRae, postmaster; G. S. McCarter,
lawyer; W, M. Lawrence, hardware
man; and C. B. Hume, merchant. Tbe
local board of trade coutingent ap
pointed to accompany the delegation
consists of E. H. Heapj, F. Buncombe
and R. H. Alexander. Thos. Taylor,
M.P.P., arrived in the city today from
Kevelstoke and will go to Victoria in
connection wilh the matter.
In an interview today Mr. McCarter
said: "What is wanted is that the
trail now running to the mouth of
Canoe river, a distance of 90 miles, be
cleared so that it will be available for
a sleigh road iu winter, and that a
wagon road be constructed from the
mouth of Canoe river to Tete Jaune
Cache, another 90 miles. If this is
done, the supplies may be taken in
during the winter to Canoe river, and
freighted in summer to the csmps.
One section of tbe G.T.P., 79 miles in
length, west of the Pass, has to be
built rigbt away, and if the road is
available for tbe contractors of tbis,
supplies will be taken in by this route
ior other sections westward. We
want this route right away, otherwise
the route ol supply will be via Edmonton.
"Revelstoke ie not asking anything
too much. There are nine miles of
wagon rosd along this line running
out of the city, and further on another six miles bas beeu built by
people engaged in logging. About
$12,000 has been raised by subscription in Revelstoke in aid ol the proposed improvement, but we should
not be asked to do even this, as tbe
road will run through a territory
thick with timber, and from which
the Government derives  about  $200,-
000 a year reveuue. All thut we ask
is that 25 per cent, of one year's revenue be devoted to improvement in
the district.   Not only will vast tracts
01 timber he opened up, but access
will be given to valuable mining
properties both between Revelstoke
aod Canoe River and beyond. These
are worked now, but development will
expand rapidly if better means of
transportation are afforded. As it is
now, there is transportation by water
as far as Death Rapids, and from
Death Rapids on to Canoe River.
Assistance is being asked from the
Dominion Government toward constructing a tram line around the
rapids which will greatly facilitate
traffic.
"Contractor! for Q. T. P. construction who havo looked over the route
speak favorably of it, and with the cooperation from the Boards ol Trade
of Victoria and Vancouver, and assistance from the Government, a large
trade will be kept within the Province."

everyday affairs of life. Nu doubt
the educated Japanese is as a rule
a charming personality, but it is
not tho educated Japanese that is
being brought here or is being
mixed up in these continual troubles. It maybe Raid that the Japanese coolies are irresponsible because they are ignorant and are
dangerous because their national
esteem has boon built on a lack ol
understanding of their proper relations to mankind at large. ThiB
is probably true, but it mikes it
all the moro necessary that they
should be excluded Irom civilized
com in un il ies whioh do not understand thorn and do not share their
sympathies and peculiarities.
ll seems most remarkable that
after cotumiuing the outrage at
Carlin Siding these men should not
have been punished. It is to be
presumed that their number, there
were eighty in all, and the realiza
tion on the part oi tbe authorities
that the responsibility for the in
juries to the conductor could not
be placed on the right shoulders,
induced the officials to overlook
the incident altogether.

ORIENTAL DANGER
In the attack which was made
recently at Carlin .Siding, between
Revelstoke and Kamloops, by a
crowd of Japanese coolies, on C.P.
R. trainmen we have au illustration of what we may expect not
infreqnenily wben the?e Orientals
find ihemseives in sufficient numbers in any locality in the province
to d>-ly '.he law, says a Coast con-
temporary. The story, and ils
si,rn:nuance is not imps-irei by the
fuel thnt it required a party ol
otiki-lr in atiihoriiy lo go up lhe
line uml pacify the orientils. Thai
a croud nl alien-, under the impression lhat they were the victims
of a trick, should consider ihtin-
selvee at liberty to take the law
into their own hands under any
circumstances. The same right
will readily be conceded to thorn
that iB conceded to all others, tho
right of defending themselves when
attacked. But this wae not a case
of self-defense, but of unjustifiable
assault upon innocent men.
The feature of the incident which
impresses one moet is tbe reckless
impulse to do hurt which was
manifested by these people, the
tame impulse which characterized
. the attack upon the three firemen
in Vancouver on New Year's eve,
the same impulse which we find
manifesting itself wherever the
Japanese are in Jorce and can find
weapons.
It iB tbat characteristic in these
people which must render them for
all  time   undesirable   residents in
TUBERCULOSIS
The government and people of
British Columbia have shown a
highly commendable interest in
providing for the care of patients
suffering from consumption, and
excellent results are already reported. It is now stated that the
management of the Sanitarium at
Tranquille is short of funds for the
maintenance of that institution,
and necessary there will be an appeal to the public for money which
will doubtless be forthcoming. But
we venture to ask why such appeals should be necessary. If sanitaria are needed in the public interest, and no one raises a question
upon that point, why ahould not
the public support them. Why
should the management be compelled to appeal to the public for
money, aB if they were promoting
some organization in their own
interest? Why should people be
asked to contribute as though they
were supporting a charity? We
are far from suggesting that persons
bo inclined should not give freely
to suoh institutions, but there is no
more valid reason why the provision for the care of people with
unsound lungs should be left in
whole or in part to voluntary contributions than that the care of
people with unsound minds should
be. The people of British Columbia having recognized that tbe
maintenance of such institutions as
that at Tranquille are necessary in
the public welfare, we submit if the
legislature ought not to make provision for their support. This is
not to say that those who can
afford to pay for treatment should
not do so, but only that the management should be relieved of the
necessity of making appeals to
those who are charitably disposed
for assistance in maintaining what
it is conceded is one of the most
important works that can be undertaken in this or any other country.
There may, of course, be an aspect
of this case which has not yet presented itself io us, and we should
be very glad to have the views of
others upon It,

FAVORS CANOE
RIVER ROUTE
Declared Feasible all the Year
Round by G. T. P. Contractor
—Revelstoke's United Action
to Further Project.
A special meeting of the Board of
Trade was held on Saturday afternoon
with a good attendance. President F.
B. Lewis was in the chair. In coming
at once to the subject for which the
meeting was called, G. 8. McCarlei
said that Mr. Gall, who had contracts
for tha construction of tbe G. T. P.
and who had recently returned from a
trip up the Big Bend and Cunoe Rivor
said that ho favored that route und
was punitive that the Canoe River ,vas
navigable for at least four months of
the year for light draft steamers. The
west channel through the log jamb
would cost little to clear und above
that was a stretch of 25 miles of good
water for light draft vessels, as far as
Pack Saddle for about four months in
tho year. He suggested a wagon road
to Tete Jaune Cache from Canoe River
and a sleigh road to the mouth of
the Canoe River. Mr. Gall did not
want his base of operations in different places in different seasons ot tbe
year and strongly favored tbe Canoe
River route provided that it would be
open in winter.
Mr. McCarter suggested that the
trail from Revelstoke to Canoe River
be widened to a road seeing that the
work would be easy. He said that this
was a matter where, if sucb roads were
constructed to the Cache, Revelstoke
would materially benefit. Mines and
lumber camps would be operated and
every industry would derive benefit
from it. The people should get together and push this matter, aod the
city council should also take it up so
that a good proposition can be put up
to Ihe government and secure this
winter route.
C. F. Lindmark said it was a vital

NINE MILLION
FEETOFTIMBER
Running Amuck Down Slocan
River Owing to Bursting of a
Big Boom—Loss Estimated
at Sixty Thousand Dollars
Nelson, June 9.—Word readied the
city yesterday morning that owing to
tbe bursting of tbe boom of the Patriek
Lumber Company,on the Slocan river,
some 9,000,000 feet of timber went out
and down the river. The loss is said
to be about $60,000. The boom was
situated about four miles from the
junction of the Slocan and Kootenay
rivers, and about twelve miles from
the Columbia river. There are several
mills on the Columbia river, and it is
hoped that their booms will catch
most of the logs as they go down
towards the ocean. Tbe mill and
boom of the company are distant some
30 miles to the west of this city.
High water at the flood stage caused the trouble.
Famine in Lumber.
Speaking about tbe lumber outlook,
Mr. Campbell, manager ol the West
Kootenay Light A Power Co., eaid to
the Rossland Miner, that a large number of settlers have arrived in the
Northwestern provinces (his year, and
more are coming in. The stocks of
lumber in the yards on the prairies are
depleted, while the lumber supplies at
the mills in the interior of this province are limited. Logging operations
in this province were stopped all last
winter oo account of the cessation in
the lumber demand from the prairies
aod elsewhere, and there is but little
material ou band for tbe mills to work
on. Tbe new arrivals on the prairies
must have bouses, barns and fences,
and tbe lact tbat tbere are to be large
crops will tend to increase thedemaud
of lumber. As a result of tbe ex
pected increased demand and tbe lack
of preparedness on the part of tbe
millmen in the way of logs, Mr. Camp,
bell says he expects to see a regular
lumber famiue on the prairies this fall.

ANNUAL CHURCH PARADE
Knights of Pythias and Pythian
Sisters Attend Divine Service
Following is ii synopsis uf n seimon
preached iu the Methodist church on
Sundny evening, June 7th, to the
local members of tbe Knights of
Pythian and tho Pythian Sinters, by
Rev. T. VV. Hall.
Tho preacher took for his text, Prov.
29; 7 and James 1; 27, "The righteous
cousideretli the cause of the poor; bin
the wicked regitrdeth not to know it."
Pure religion aod undented before
God aud the Father is this. "To visit
the fatherless and the widows in their
afflictions," and, to "keep himself unspotted from the world." After showing
in bis introduction that tbe teacbing
of the combined text was, "Treatment
of tbe needy; one of the highest tests
of human character." Tbe speaker
divided his subject into four beads,
treating each head as follows:
1. The test is Divine.—The principle
by which character is tested by your
order, is professionally based upon this
trutb. But the principle is borrowed.
The system was like all other human
systems, imperfect, and needed a
Divine principle as its mainspring.
Where did tbe principle come Irom?
Was it ever manifested before Damon
offered his life as a pledge for Pythias?
Gad lirst announced the prinoiple
when he said to Cain, "Tbe voice ol
thy brother's blood crietb unto me
from tbe ground." When God wanted
the character of bis ancient people
obanged so that tbey would in their
conduct be in harmony with himself,
be said," Wash you, make you clean;
put away the evil your doing from
before mine eyes; cease to do evil;
learn to do well, seek judgment, relieve the oppressed; judge the fatherless, plead for the widow."
"Ib not this the part that I lu.ve
chosen; is it not to deal out thy bread
to the hungry, and that thou bring
tbe poor tbat are cast out to thy
houses and that when thou see tbe
naked that thou cover him."
If the system begun in the early
Christian church had been perpetuated
there would bave been no need for any
of tbe orders of today, nor the revolutions which threaten tbe social order
now. Tbe teacbing of that first order
was: "Who so hatb this world's goods,
and seeth bis brother in need, and
shuttetb up bis bowels of compassion
from him, how dwelleth   tbe   love   ol

winds u. d iu love like Christ's love.
3. The lest is blessed", lining n lod
to the needy not only blesses the re
eeiver, it also blesses the giver. No
doubt lhe experience of some ol the
visiting brethren and sisterB of this
Order has been lhat it was mure
blessed to give than to rec ive. Such
in expressed in the sentiment of Job,
29; 13: "I caused the widow's heart
to sing for joy." To know, in the dark
hour, when the bread-winner has been
perhaps, suddenly shut off by the
baud of death, that someone cures for
her well being. What a bright spot
in the heavens which might otherwise
appear dark.
4. Tbe test will be final. Accord
ing to the Scriptures what shall separate tbe wicked from the just in the
great day? tt will not be tbe result
of caprice or arbitrary power, but
according to tbe law of benevolence.
Why shall some be placed on the
right hand of the Judge, and what is
the reason assigned for it? "I was
hungry and ye gave me drink, Matt.
25; 35. According to the teaching of
Jesus Christ, the principle in this
Scripture ie the one tbat shall determine our destiny.
Tbe person who will not live a life
of godly benevolence oannot in the
nature of the case enter heaven; for
without this there is no oonformity to
God. "God is love." "He lhat lov
eth not, knoweth not God, Ior God is
love."
Not tbat lor the sake of  these acts
of mercy on our part we shall be saved
but if they are done for Christ's sake
and in   Hie   name we shall  win the
eternal reward.
But the idea! teaching is in the
closing thought of the text: 'To keep
himself unspotted from lhe world."
It may be said that this Order does
not claim to set up such a high ideal
Why not? Why claim the first part
and not the secoud and last? " Pure
religion and tindeliled before God and
tbe Father is this: To visit the fatherless and widows in their allliction."
That is the first part, and the Order
teaches that, but you should not stop
short of the other grand ideal: "To
keep himself unspotted from the
world."
Offering the Order represented God
speed in all that is praiseworthy, and
helpful to poor, sick, suffering, sorrowing and dying men and women, the
speaker reminded all present that the
the. Independent Hand, marched to
the Oddfellows'ball over the old post
olliee where the Pythian brethren had
asaeu led. Here the procession funned and marched to the cemetery in
lho following order) Independent
Band, Selkirk Lodge No. 12, IO 0 F.,

On arrival ut the oomotery the doo-

lodges over the graves of the docoased
brethren, and many beautiful lloral
tributes placed thereon. Appropriate
hymns were sung during the service
which throughout was followed attentively by a large crowd of interested

the intervals at the cemetery a
number of sacred selections were
rendered by the Independent Band.
On their return to the lodge rooms

RACE WAR IN OKLAHOMA
Ninteen Men Killed in Battle
Between Whites and Negroes
Oklahoma City, June 9.—In a
pitched battle near Cleo Springs late
on Saturday night between negroes
and whites, thirteen negroes aod six
whites were killed, according to advices received here. One of the negroes killed was Jim Kingsbury, who
murdered Sheriff Garrison, of Oklahoma City, near Hitchcock, and wbo
was being hunted by several posses.
The battle was fought when the
posse came on Kingsbury, in the hills
near Cleo Springs about midnight.
The posse numbered 700 men, all
armed. Feeling had been running
high, all day, and when Kingsbury,
instead of being alone, aa ut lirst reported, was joined in the hills by a
large number of negro companions.
The details of the buttle were not received, but the negroes were prepared
for the attack and returned, the fire,
several volleys being fired by both
Bides.
Watongit, which is near tbe scene
of the battle, has a negro population
of 2,000, and it is feared the fight may
start a campaign of extermination by
the whitcB against this community.
The negroes hold the balance of power
politically in that eection of the state
and the whites have openly  expressed
THREE VALLEY LAKE..
God ih bim. My little ohildren let
us not love in word, or in tongue, but
in deed and tn truth."
The principle lay in tbe great heart
of God ages before tbis order wss
brought into being.
It was in tbe saered shunt of Jesus
Christ, "wbo, though he was riob became poor, tbat we through bis poverty might be rich." Tbe Great Master
over all will not determine our character by our conformity to creed; by
our mode of worship; by our seal, regularity or devotion in working out
our religious opinions; but by a standard ol love; practieal kindness to the
poor, tbe needy and distressed.
2. Tbis test pf character is practical
—The Divine test ef religion is philanthropy. It is like tbe diamond,
pure and white. In human nations
tbis diamond is loved for love suits all
graces.
To bear each other's burdens is to
fulfil tbs law ol Christ which is love.
This practical test comes within the
reach of all. Had it been a standard
of theological knowledge, or an ornate
method of religious worship, it would
have been out of tbe reach ol man.
But practical kindness is always
available, lor the poor, the needy, tho
sick and dying are always here. While
tbe members of this order have the
means to help and are compelled to
do so, yet by a higher law  every   one
highest example of endurance, of kindness of cross bearing for the sake of
others is in Jesus Christ.
He offers not only to all members
of tbis Order, but to all others, a fellowship tbe very closest, a union the
very strongest, a brotherhood and sisterhood tbe very dearest, and a reward
for all we do for His sake, which shall
be eternal.
It is ours now to beal tbe sick, to
relieve the distressed, to bind up the
broken hearts, and to raise the burdens from off the souls that are ready
to sink. May it be ours by God's
saving grace, when the last sob shall
be beard, and the last pain shall be
felt, and the last struggle for health
and bread and life shall be over to
bear the Grand Master over all say:
"Inasmuch as ye did it unto one ol
tbe least of those ye have done it unto
me."      '

Retail Grocers Association
Here are the reasons given for tho
formation of a retail grown1 organization comprising merchants from
Vancouver, Victoria, New Westminster and Nanaimo, a step taken this
week when the B. C Retail Grocers'
association was formally brought into
existence, says the Vancouver News
Advertiser.
"Tn foster and maintain a permanent social feeling among the retail
grocers of British Columbia; to obliterate distrust and inspire confidence
among the mem ben uf the trail... to
correct excessive and mini errant ile
competition; to remove by concert,
of action such evils and oostoras as
are against good policy and .nunc!
business principle—whether it lie cutting uf prices, selling of the wholesale
house at retail, improper honsS-tO-
house peddling, the distribution and
consumption of adi.Iterated and un.
wholesome goods, the une of flotitloui
labols, the use of dishonest weights
and measures, or whatsoever the evil
may be; to disseminnte useful information, to watch and influence legislation towards the Iielter protection of
capital; to assist members in collecting delinquent accounts; to encourage
the observance of the Sabbath and all
legal holidays, and to attain tho results which experience hss proved are
not attainable by individual or divided
effort."
Railways and Timber.
The railway builder has to i often
Bounded the deatb-knell of the forest.
Only of late years has tbe necessary
oare been exercised to prevent tbe
wholesale destruction of forests along
railway lines in course of construction.
The Canada Atlantic and tbe Tern-
iscaming and Northern Ontario railways are examples of railway lines
built, in eome portions, through valuable forests without any considerable
damage having been done to tbe woods
by fire. During the construction of
tbe former its builder, Mr. John R.
Booth, tbe well-known lumerman,
laid down for bis contractors such
regulations in regard to burning brush
along tbe right of way and setting
fires generally that no serious fire took
place. Constant and careful patrolling
of the line of tbe T. A N. O. has like,
wise resulted in an almost complete
absence of forest fires.
An unfortunate contrast to this is
presented in the construction of the
C. P. R. lines in Northern Ontario
and British Columbia. These were
constructed before the days of careful
overnight in tbe matter of fires along
the right of way. In 1869 a fine green
forest extended from Nipigon, Ont.,
westward to within a comparatively
abort distance of Winnipeg. The passage of the troops through this coun
try in 18H9 was partly responsible for
its being burned over; but the building
uf the railway in 1882-84 was responsible Ior a far greater proportion of the
iuss. Around Canmore, B. C, and
Kicking Horse Lake, too, occurred
conspicuous examples of devastation
wrought by forest tires arising from C.
P. K construction

WOODMEN OF THE WORLD
Local Camp Attend Divine Service at Knox Church
Last Sunday evening Camp Mountain View attended divine worship at
Knox PreBhyterian Church. There
was a large attendance of the Woodmen, who occupied the centre seats.
Sov. the Rev. J. R. Robertson, welcomed the brethren to the church am"
after the opening numbers of tbe service rendered by the choir, preached
from the general epistle of James, 1st
chop , 16th and 27th verse*, dealing
particularly with tbe inspired words:
"Do not err, my beloved brethren,"
"Pure religion and undented before
Ood and tbe Father ie this: To visit
the fatherless and widows in their
nllliction, and to keep himself unspotted Irom the world."
Religion was a fundamental principle of life and the divine snd human
oarae together in the perfect man.
Fraternal societies were one wilh tbe
ohurch in demonstrating this pure
religion and the hsrmnn'es of tbe
civilization of the ago to which we
belong.
Brotherhoods nere sometimes criticized for their secretive n .turc, but
were not alone in this respect, other
organizations being to au extent similar, also what man or woman but has
something in his or her life to be revealed to none but God alone; moreover the laws and hy laws of societies
were open to all.
Fraternity held no place for a caste
social system, nor recognize the commercial rating of the business world.
Its splendid platform was simply one
ol character, was a man good or bad?
Nevertheless the brotherhood still had
a regard fnr the whole world, and its
great work was to go forward and link
all mankind in the bonds of brotherhood. In this work tbe church and
fraterual societies stood together.
Tbe third principle of the Order
was Charity. "Keep unspotted from
the world. Visit tbe widow and tbe
orphans, and rememner the dead." It
is tbe family tbat wisely provides for
itself tbat is best able to help others,
and so an Order bas the best conception of its duty to the world.
Claiming a divine source for fraternal societies, the preacher dwelt upon
tbe Christian essentials necessary in
all members before tbey can join, and
while Orders bad their own conception
of their social work all recognized the
brotherhood ol tbe human soul.
Tbe sermon was delivered with an
eloquent earnestness aud straight-
fotward manner tbat held the close
attention of all.
Tbe service included tbe singing of
tbe two Woodmen hymns, "Jesus
Lover of My Soul," and "Nearer My
God to Tbee," tbe choir rendering
tbeir part of tbe service wilh tbat perfect excellence of style so well known
and appreciated by all lovers of sacred
music.
Having returned to tbe lodge room
the Woodmen recorded a vote of
thanks to Sov. tbe Rev .Mr.Robertson,
for ibe sermon, a oopy of which was
duly forwsrded.

NEW ELECTRIC ILLUMINANT
C.P.R. May Adopt New System
on Passenger Cars
Attached to No. 97 on Saturday
nigbt was the first passenger car
on which tbe C.P.R. are experimenting witb tbe new system of lighting,
it being tbeir intention of doing away
with pintsch gas and all other combustible illuminatit and superseding
tbem with electricity, Tbe car in
question has been fitted witb a dynamo
being bolted to the bottom underneath
tbe car. A secondary battery or accumulator is also installed which is
charged witb tbe superfluous current
over and above wbat is required for
lighting. A compact ammeter and
volt meter witb switch for abutting off
or putting on full or half lights in tbe
car, is fixed in a convenient position
where the conductor or brakenien can
get at it. Five handsome four-lamp
electroliers, as well as eight single
brackets, are installed in the ear giving ample light, the new Testatum
lamp being used. When the oar is
running electricity is generated which
Charges the battery and lights tbe
lamps, there lieing sufficient current
stored to last 16 hours il the car remained stationary that time. Current
will lie generated at and over 6 miles
an hour and a governor prevents overcharging il tbe speed gels beyond 30
to Ml. The trials have been most satisfactory so far, anil it is very probable
that the C.P.It. will adopt the system
on all their passenger cars. It is an
English invention and used practioally
on every railroad in Great Britain.
All danger ol fire in event ol collision
is eliminated and the machinery requires little or no attention. The
electric light will lie a great improve
ment ovor the gas, the light being
stronger and better dispensed.
