Proposed Scheme for the Ascent

perfectly feasible, lias been actuated
by tbe success attending Ibe inauguration ul shinier innovations in tbe

would be the vast natural parks

easy by the constiuction ul a cog
wheel railway up the slopes of the
mountain, there can be little doubt
but that a large number ul people
would take advantage uf tlie railway
and thereby add to Kevelstoke'B popularity sb a scenic resort.

OTTAWA, March II.—Negoti-. I ions are
understood to be at present in progress between ibe Doiniuou Government and the Iiraud Trunk Pacific
Railway Company for the purchase by
tbe goverment of ten million dollars'
worth ol the company's bonds.
It was reported in a Montreal dispatch to one of the Toronto morning
papers today that the government was
loaning ten million to the Urand

this statment is incorrect.
In tbe event ol the proposed purchase by the'govern mentrol the company's bonds being approved by tbe
cabinet, the arrangment will, ol
course, be submitted to parliment
tor ratilication.
The proposal is based on tbe very

U. of the (iothenhurg system lur
dealing with the lii|iior p,i|<<slinr
hac been discussed iu the Provincial Legislature and that this system was included in Mr.Hawthorn
tbwaite's resolution last week culling for n Royal Commission to
inquire into tlie liquor ijuestion, it
may he as well tn enlighten our
renders as to what the Gothenburg
system i^. This system has been
adopted in Norway nnd Sweden.
Fifty years ago there were over
35,000 distilleries in Scandinavia,
now there are hut a few. The consumption of liquor has so decreased
that the manufacture of liquor is
practically nil. The Gothenberg
system is simple: it eliminates all
profit from its sale liy retail and is
controlled by the government;
there is no object in disbursing liquor, tlie tendency being strongly
against i', ami drunkenness is
noticeable only in its r.trity. The
success with the Gothenberg system, in comparison with results in
countries and states where prohibition and 1111101- moans of dealing
with the question have been in
force is very apparent. Drastic
anil sweeping measures in a question which perhaps excites the
keenest, interest, above till others,
should not be taken, nnd anything
which will throw n reasonably
true and jusl light in tbe way
of settlement uf the subject
cannot be objected Ui. While describing lhe system uf lhe liquor
trallic adjustment we are not holding out. ini'. arguments for or
against ii, bill merely to wish to
bring before the public what may

The unusual increase in bona title

cause u- to make some kind of an
impression upon each individual of

lined as "The act of creating a want
and turning the consequent demand toward tlie BOpply." An
effort should be made to create a
desire in the hearts of as many of
tliese visitors as is possible to come

Manitoba hard wheal is acknowledged the strongest in the world—
and that e the kind used for
Purity Flour.
But that's not -ill Every grain
of this wheat coul Ms '■■■•'■ high-
grade and low gt-nile pr'-ccrlies.
In separating the higli-graiij jjui ts
from the low-grade the Western
Caaada Flour Mills pal tlm haul
wheat through aproceassnexacting
that not a single low-grade part
haa the remotest chance of getting
In witb the high-grade.
Of course thin speri.il process is
more -expensive lo operate but it
means a lot to Purity Hour users—
that's why we use it.
It mean ' that 1'urity Flour is
mai'c entirely of the highest-grade
(lour p_ut3 of the strongest wheat
in the world.
II means a high-class, strong flour
an I therefore yields "more bread

it lhe cheapest and most economical after all.

Mr. Watson arrived in the city on

Work  Will Be Rushed When
Water Permits
A large number ol men arc now
being employed hy the contractors of
the government trallic budge acrosa
tbeColnmbia here,and etigaged iu hauling quantities ol brush lor inaltrass
ing, and ruck Inr cribbing and piling.
It is unlikely that the actual driving
ul piles will lie commenced until all
danger ol drift wood ia eliminated,
which will be some time after the high
water. Meanwhile there will be
enough lo du to gel ibe material on
the ground, erect the approaches and
other preliminary work. As soon aa
tbe pile drivers are in operation no
time will be lost, and lhe contractors
are quite confident that tbey will bave
the work completed well within the
time limit. As we understand tbat
party politics baa been busy already in
the employment ol laborers on the
work, the rapid progress in construe
lion and completion should not la1
hampered by any political intrigue or
unlairness in Ibe selection of workmen.
Evangelistic Services
The evangelistic scavicea iu ll.i
Baptist Church, under the diraction
ol   the   Pastor   snd   Evangelist linker,
opened od Sunday last ami arecou
tinuing each  nigbl  thia week except
rtaturdni. H . Baker 1- proving himself to be a strung.simple,Bt mpul hetie,
sane pruclaimer of gospel truths. On
Sunday morning be spoke on "A Holy
Spirit Revival," based on the second
chapter ■ f Acts. In the fi -nt place he
spoke uf the men thai G d used in
that day. The-e men were n..| 1 'onsen
b cause of tbeir wealth, s cial position
nor intelligence, but because ol tbe-r
love for Christ and tlieir paasion Ior
the souls of met). In ihe second place
he sp ike if the methods used in carrying on the work. These were two in
number—praying and preaching. No
revival waa ever realized'without most
earnest, pn I tiyel prayer, and as illtis
traiing this ihe sptaker mentioned
Christ spen.line lonu nights a'rme in
prayer, sud llut such men as Torrey,
Moody, Finney, were men ul much
prayer, and that two tilings must
o'aaracp'rize tbe preaching, viz , the
conv.i'iiim thai men me Inst, without
Cli isi; ami that Christ, died for lo-t
men siul won,',,. "Fur tbe S-n of
Madeline 10 seek sod to save thai
which .vis int-i " In the third place
tbe ApOslolle revival wrnt ehJrai'ierlzeii
by two tb. jts. First, s deep couvic
nun ul sin. " i'hey were pricked in
their hearts," aid said, "Men and
brethren what must we du tube sived "
Aud stcoudly by a confession of Christ
and conversion ol their life, aud there
were three thousand added to the
oburoli tbat day as the rear It ol Peter's
In the evening Mr. Baker spoke to
a lull bouse on God's question to
Adam, "Where art thou?" The preach
er said this question was nut asked for
iufui'iiiation. for God knew where
Adam was, but He asked it to get
Adam to locate himself. Xor wae the
queatijn asked with reference to his
physical, social, ur mental condition,
but to the man's individual relation
to God. Tins question is pertinent to
all, fur everybody ought to want to
know their real atiitude towards their
Maker. He went on to siy that s me
day men must anewer this question
Paul came face lo face with it on lhe
road tu Damascus. Men in death
faced it often unawares, and ae an
illustration tbe speakei descrii-ed very
vividly a shipwreck Oil 1 ha coast of
Nova Scotia, where men fuciut; death
amid the waves bad to answer tbe
question. Aud lually, tbis question
ought to be answered eeiiuusy,
thoughtfully aud above all, honestly.
And the question is, are we for God or
against Him—are we saved or lost.
The senium was must impressive and
many must have gone away with very
serious thoughts.

A Good Sermon Defined
Apropos of an argument recently in
the city over ministers and sermons,
anil llie qualillcatii 11-of good sermons,
ive venture tlie following suggestions,
which in our opinion are I hi'essentials
of a good sermon.
"It must he in ihe lungiingc of common life. It n u-i I e until spoken
with conviction, not ipialified liy desire
to please ur placate, nor uttered in a
spirit to pr.ivoke opposition. The
sermon which is valued is oue which
shows men tlieir temptations, and
bow to overcome tliom; which inspires
men to trust Ciod iu llie midst of
business anxielits; which sustains
tbem in the dark hours of adversity
and loss and bereavement; which
teaches aud leads them to apply practical remedies tor tbe sorrows of the
alllicted and the sufferings of the pour;
which kindles their love for children,
increases their confidence iu the
triumph ol righteousness over evil in
this world and opens before them a
vision of ftilure blrssetluess with Cod
in eternal joy antl harm my wi'h him.
In a word, the sermon which nun
like is the one which Iii ids them as
they are, and shows tiiein bow they
can become what in tbeir nest moments Ihey desire to he. Such a scrim 11
is a revelation ul experience spoken in
language understood Ilu,nigh expert-
— j eiice   with   Jesus   Christ,   looking on
pipers and pretty designs I IMen aB do lyyks on them, the best in

those failing arc specific conditions,
failure of others apparently solvent
nnd competition, During l'.HJH tlie
