MORNING SESSION.
The convention opened jester-
''ay morning with a short service of
prayer, addressed by the clergymen
in attendance, Tho formal opening
nf lhe convention was to have been at
0.80 . hy President F. M. Chadbourn,
but owing to the delay of the train
on tlni main i'uo by which tho eoost
delegates were prevented fro-n being
present nt the day session, Mr. Chad-
lionrn decided io postpone the formal
I'liening until the evening. It wns
dooided after some discussion that the
session should be adjouured till three
o'clock iu the afternoon, which was
accordingly done on motion of Mr.
Thomas Parkinson, seconded by Rov.
E. White.
AFTERNOON SESSION.
The afternoon session opened at
three o'clock. President Cliadbomn
was in the chair. Tho hymn -'lllossed
ASKuian-e," vras sung and Rev. Mr.
Thompson of Kaslo,  led in prayer.
Rev. Dr. Wright opened the business of the session by discussing the
'inestion "The Influence of the C. E.
Movement on the Life and Work of
the Church." Every age, he said,
liad its own peculiarities and the
Christian Endeavor society was the
untcomc of an effort to supply one of
the needs peculiar to the present day.
He did not believe the former times
were better than these, wc occupy no
lower platform than our fathers   did.
However one of the pressing needs of
our time is n more active and progressive Christian spirit, the same Hint
marked the lirst duys of Christianity.
A revival is in progress and never
before has the Macedonian cry come
from such immense numbers, Are wc
meeting tlie demands of the age. are
wo furnishing men and meuuH to
reop tho harvest that is ready'.' A
more heroic faith and increased energy arc needed and the evangelic
spirit must be emphasized. Another
need of the church is the consecration of the Christian wealth to thc
Christian cause. The comparative
failure of the church to discipline the
powers of the church to get the most
out of the latent power. No propot-
ticnute impulse has been felt hy the
young people of the church, tbey hove
not been properly utilized for the purposes of the church. Tbis wns the
fault of the chucrh on account of its
neglect to drill tho young. A well
organized and well drilled force can
accomplish much more than untrained
forces of many times tho size. The
church forces, if utilized to the full,
would be- a power that would sweep
Canada, would close saloons, purify
politics and enrich private, social and
national life. Laxity of life cuts the
strings of the church's life; when the
lives of the members of God's chuich
are daily evidences of the power of
Christianity the church has u strength
that wonld make all enemies bow before it. Is the Christian Endeavor
society in any way fulfilling these
missions? If true to its ideal it must
exact an enobling, purifying, uplifting effoct on church life. The whole
scope of Christian Endeavor is within
the Church, not something tacked on
the outside of it. All tbe appeals
that are made are to tbe purest and
best in the human heart. Spiritual
life is contagious and the inevitable
outcome of the C. E. movement must
be tho enriching of tbe Christian life.
The young people are taught to witness for Christ and it is a grand step
along the lines of Christian life. One
danger of the church is that it falls
into a comfortable routine and the C.
E. is well adapted to arrest this routine and to fan into a livelier llanie
the energy of the church. The in>
gathering of mauy young people into
the fold of Christ is a great work that
the C. E. is doing. Dr. Wright referred to many other goods tbat the
movement was doing and concluded
an excellent address that was listened
to with which interest by those
present.
Under the heading, ' My Society,
What it bas done; What it is Doing,
and What it Plans to do." reports
from various socioties of the union
were read. There were from Vancouver union, the society of the First
Presbyterian church, Vancouver,
Presbyterian church, Slocau City,
Cranbrook Bociety, Kaslo society
Greeenwood Presbyterian church
society, St.Paul's Presbyterian church
Nelson. These reports dealt with the
organization, growth and woik of the
different societies and, on the whole,
showed them to be on a satisfactory
and flourishing basis.
When the reports had been presented
on evangelistic meeting led by Bev.
Mr. Thompson, wss held. It lasted
an hour, after which an adjournment
was made until even ing.
EVENING SESSION.
Devotional exercises opened tbo
ovening session when the church was
almost filled, although the delegates
from the coast had not yet arrived.
The lateness of the train again interfered with the programme.the address
of Rev. R. G. MaoUeth of Vancouver,
having to be eliminated.
President Chadbourn addressed the
meeting, making a brief referenco to
the origin of the Christian Endeavor
union and.the work that it accomplishes, lie expressed tho hope that
the convention would increase tho
enthusiasm of the delegates for Christian work and accomplish the great
good that was expocted of it. He
outlined the work that was to be
done.
The delegates were welcomed to
Nelson by Judge Forin, on behalf of
the citizens. He was sorry that there
wore rot more delegates present and
that tho delay in the train service
causen many of them to bo too late
for the opening exercises, but he extended a hearty welcome to all and
expressed the wish that the convention would bo in every way successful.
E. Robertson woloomed tho delegates
on behalf of the business men, He
said there was no reason to be discouraged at the small attendance as
many small conventions accomplished
great good.    He was followed by Rev.

Kuotenay, was in tbe city
on a hiiHin.'Ss visit. Mr
Bruce reports that the town of Windermere is nourishing and that the
countiy around it is being rapidly
developed. One of the principal improvements being aiade is the construction of a wagon road fiom
Peterboro to the .Macdonald mines, a
distance of 28 miles. The government
has appropriated $15,11011 towards iho
highway ad the Macdonald Mines will
put up the remainder of tlie cost.

1,0011 tOUS~of ore lias just been completed from Hie Paradise nunn. which
is situated.)., miles from Peterboro.
The ore was sent In Trail and other
shipments are to follow, but owing io
the low price of lead only such oro us
is taaen out in the course of development is to be sent to the smelter. Tho
ore is a gray oabronate of good grade.
Several strikes have been made during the season in the Windermere
division, the most important being in
the Silver Belt whioh adjoins lhe
Paradise. The ore in tlie Silver Bell
is an oxidi/cd iron carrying silver in
large quantities , The ore is so good
a grade that the owners purpose packing ool a carload to Petorboro for
shipment this fall.
Tbe government has extended the
Toby creek wagon road from Spiing

POOL TABLE AN ISSUE.
Those who have played fifteen ball
pool know that it is a game of skill
rather than of chance. Montreal is at
present agitated over the question of
whether or not a pool table should be
one of the forms of amusement provided by tbe Young Men's Christian Association of that city. As a matter of
fact, and the supporters of the plan of
Introducing the table in the Y. M. C.
A. building at Montreal cite it to
support their contention, pool tables
have been introdced in tbe buildings
of the Y. M. C. A. in Hartford, Conn.,
and at St. Paul, Miuu. It is claimed
that the wisdom of such a course has
been vindicated. The tables are given
over to the uso of all members, over
H! years of age, between tne hours of
li and 9 p. m. Eaoh player pays one
c-rt per game so as to remove all
temptation of gambling. In Hartford
trom 251) to 500 games were frequently
played in a day until tbe hot weather
c-juimenced and then tbejgames were
fewer. It is claimed as a resuit of the
introduction of the tables that tbe
young men frequenting the room
wbieli contained them have been
orderly, a social atmosphere has been
created in a pleasant way, members
have been lead to unite with the asso-
i.ition and, so far as known, no barm
has come to anyone from the experiment. A majority of tlie Hartford
clergymen give the policy thoir un-
qualilicd approval, while only two
out of 17 express regret that the c
pcrimont lias been tried. The tables
will stay in the Hartford Y. M. C. A.
building and if they are put in by the
Montreal association it would be a
step in t'io right direction. The introduction of pool tables into buildings of the Y. M. C. A. shows that
Christian institutions are advancing,
liud .such a proposition been even
advanced a few decades since it would
have boen met with the strongest condemnation and would have been impossible of accomplishment and besides those who proposed it would
have been driven out of their churches
for being too liberal in their views.
MINING   INNOVATION  PROPOSED.
Ono of the boldest and most astounding scheme lately broaohd in mining
e unes from Suuth Africa. The ore
there is of a moderately .low grade
and the margin of proiit Is small.
Somo of the mines have reached such
depth that tho hoisting ofthe ore cuts
quite a figure in the expense of min-
ing. In order to obviate thin it is now
proposed to erect mills iu the mines
in large chamber bla6tod out for the
purpose. The water for tbe reduction
plants is always present in the workings, lt is claimed that the plan is
perfectly feasible The tailings can be
used to fill up the stopes from which
the ore has been extracted The mills
can be erected on the lower levels cf
the mines so that the ore will come to
Ihem by gravitation. The mining
engineers of the Rand say that tbe
scheme is entirely practicable and
among tbem jan be fonnd many who
have international reputations. The
plan iB to be followed out in the
'deep deeps," as the deepest mines in
that suction are culled.
Tbe plan seems reasonable and
should operate satisfactorily. Ily
locating tlie reduction plant practically in the oro bodies the cost of hoisting and haulage is entirely elimlnat-
ed and thia must necessarily cut down
the cost on the final production of the
metal. It will enable tho mining
and milling at a profit of lower grade
ores than ever befors. Altogether this
is the boldest and most novel innovation in mining that has "been put
forward for a long time and it is one
l!-at might with advantage be adopted
in some of the British Columbia free
milling mines.

crosing demand for free trade; or
while it may be argued that protection benefits us iu the east, it is hard
to demonstrate that it benefits tbe
prairie fanners, who produce far more-
wheat, oats, etc., than they can cou-
sume and are in no fear of American
competition. The western farmers
want to buy their goods in the cheap-
est market, whether it be Canadian,
British or American. It has been
argued that tbey ought to aoquiesce
cheerfully in laws intended to encourage Canadian industries because the
eastern Provinces have spent so much
money in developing tho west. Wo
doubt whether much weight will be
glveu to tbis argument. As the western farmers by growth of population
gain in political power they will
probably use that power to promote
their own interests; and the result
may be such an agitation for freer
trade, or even absolutely trie trade,
thut no (iovernment, cf whatever
party composed, will bo aide to resist
it. Such a movement may be dclayeu
ten or even twenty years; but it is
useless to try to close our eyes to the
fact that the growth of the west will
probably mean a growth of free trade

EDITORIAL NOTES.
EAST VS. THE WEST.
Some of our Conservative ootitem-
piraries are trying to extract from
the census returns the lesson thut we
ought to put higher protective duties
on eery thing that we consume, says
the Toronto (Hobo. There is another
point of view. Tho returns show thut
the   western Provinces are increasing
very rapidly and the eastern Provinces
very slowly. The manufacturing industries are in the east. Manitoba
linn the Territories are almost entirely
Agricultural.     If    they   continue   to
The uso of electricity is constantly
incrensng and now two Yule students
have discovered that an electrio light
is the best bait for lisbing. Fish, the
inventors say, will hover about this
sort of b- it us moths do around a
candle. They think they will be able
to revolutionize fishing with tbe
electric light and that the equipment
of those who go-a-fishiug will hereafter include a small storage battery
and iniiiiiituie electric light plant.
Lights on the surface have long beeu
used at night by fishermen with
which to attract lish and the Indian/
make use of this device in capturing
salmon. Tlie electric light, however,
can bo placed under the water where
it is said to bu u more successful lure
than u light above the water.
metal from the salty sea aro as certain to come to grief as was the company which went into the pioject on
un extensive scale on the coast of one
of the New England states a few years
since and after erecting largo worus
the corporation collapsed leaving the
stockholoders valuable experience
but considerably out of pocket. It is
certain, therefore, that Mr. Bull will
fail as his predecessoi-3 in the same
line have and that successful mining'
for gold will be carried on under the
old fashioned methods.
Thc iconoclast is again at work and
if ho is not stopped in his destructive
work there will be nothing left to
believe in. At a meeting of tbe
American Association for the Advancement of Science, held a few days
since in Denver, Colorado, Professor
W. .1. McUec, said to bo an eminent
ethnologist, read a paper on "Current
Questions in Anthropology,'' during
which he said that for centuries students had adhered to the supposition
that mankind had sprung from a common parentage, but modern research
had shuttred this theory. It must be
apparent, ho held, that the negro, the
Mongolian, the Malay and the Caucasian could not nave descended from
thc same pair. The talk of Adam and
Eve having set up housekeeping in the
Garden of Eden was,in the professor's
opinion, absurd. There must have
been several such couples. Professor
(Joorge Dorsey, of the Anthropological
section of the Field museum of Chicago, and Professor Frank Hussel, of
Harvard, defended Adam and Eve,
and stoutly held for tho belief that
alt mankind sprung trom them, the
first parents, but the rest of the mem
bers sided with Professor Mcliee and
so tho question stood when tho meeting adjourned.
