ITEMS OF INTEREST
UNITED MINE WORKERS LEVY AN
ASSESSMENT.
Martin Burrell of Grand ForkB.lReturn
From the Old Country.���Good Results Will Come From His
Tour of Education.
The national convention of the United
Mine Workers of America in session at
Indianapolis, completed a discussion of
the report of the scale committee by
sections.
The first section adopted was the one
which levies an assessment of fifty
cents per month on all members of the
organization. This assessment as explained by Secretary Wilson, is for the
assistance of members of the union who
by failure to secure contracts by April
1, may be forced to idleness.
Other sections adopted authorized the
National Executive Board to increase,
decrease, or discontiue the assessment,
order miners to proceed to work where
contracts were signed or joint conferences are being held on April 1, and ordered all miners to cease work on that
date in districts where no contracts
have been signed, or where joint conferences are not in progress.
All additional details were left to the
National Executive Board. After the
report of the scale committee had been
adopted by sections without change, it
was adopted as a whole, and the committee was discharged.
trusted from time to time with most
delicate and hazardous missions.
Much of his life was spent in the far
north, in the Yukon and MacKenzie
river country. It was he who asserted
Canadian jurisdiction in Herschel Islands. His death will be a real loss to
the force which maintains law and
order throughout the lonelands of the
North American continent.
The deceased and A. W. Strickland
of Nicola were cousins.
LOCAL  NEWS'
George Irvine returned from Seattle
on Wednesday's train.

PROHIBITORY LAW
ON THE MANUFACTURE AND SALE
OF INTOXICANTS.
Mr. and Mrs. F. W. Jackson and Miss
Bulman of Quilchena and Miss Bulman
of Vancouver, were visitors to Merritt
yesterday and today.

B. O.'s Resources Told.
Martin Burrillof Grand Forks has returned from England, where he has
been delivering a series of lectures on
fruit growing in British Columbia. Mr
Burrell had a very enjoyable, if somewhat arduous trip. Whilst he found a
pretty general ignorance of British Columbia, he also found that his audiences
were highly appreciative and eager to
be well informed. It was the rule at
the close of the lectures for a large proportion of his auditors to remain behind
to cross-question him. He has every
reason to believe that good work was
done, work that will result in much direct profit to this province. He was
confronted with the difficulty of being
practically a pioneer in work of this
kind so far as British Columbia is concerned, but thanks to the people who
knew something of the province and to
journalists and members of the chamber
of commerce who had visited British
Columbia and been hospitably treated
here, he found many influential people
anxious to smooth his path and facilitate his work. Mr. Burrell is of the
opinion that before another similar trip
is taken preliminary organization work
should be done. \
Mr. Brakellin and wife arrived from
Seattle on Wednesday's train and will
locate here, having purchased a lot and
will build. He will be engaged with
George Irvine.
Well Known Officer Dead.

Can Only Prohibit When Backed By
Public Opinion.���Public Generally
Should Exert Themselves
To Enforce Such Law.
A prohibitory law that does not
prohibit is several degrees worse
than a license law that does prohibit to the extent to which it is intended to prohibit; for the reason
that a law which is violated with
impunity brings all law into contempt and breed \ general lawlessness and disorder in the state.
A prohibitory law can only prohibit when backed by" approving
and vigilant public opinion. The
law against murder is effective only
because an overwhelming majority
of the people are opposed to murder and readily lend their assistance
to the apprehension of the murderer. Similarly a law prohibiting
the manufacture and sale of intoxicating liquors can only be enforced
when the people want it enforced
and are prepared to assist in enforcing it. V;..,...
There ,is no reason to believe
that public opinion in this province
to-day is strongly in favor of prohibitory legislation or that the public generally would exert themselves to secure the enforcement of
such law. A legislature that would
place such law on the statute books
would therefore only be imposing
on the Government an impossible
task in the present state of public
opinion; and by passing a law that
could not be enforced would invite
public disregard for their legislation generally.
While it is desirable that a government and a legislature be leaders of public opinion rather than
laggards in the march of social progress, the administration of a government and the legislation of a
parliament can not and should not
run too much in advance of public
opinion. In democratic countries,
the people rule and have a right to
rule, and no government and no
legislature, however well-intentioned, is entitled to throttle the wishes
of the people in order to govern
according to their own opinions,
however strongly they may be convinced of the correctness of those
ppinions. It is the privilege of
the members alike of a government
and a legislature to advocate their
opinions as strongly as they may
deem wise, but it is not their privilege to impose those views upon
the public in the form of laws
against the public wish.
Those who are concerned in mitigating the evils of intemperance,
and who believe that these would
be permanently removed by the
enforcement of prohibitory legislation, the course of prudence is not
to advocate the enactment of such
legislation before it can be enforced
but to cultivate a public opinion
that would ensure the ensorcement
of the legislation if passed. A law
is nothing in itself, the enforcement of the law is everything; and
a government cannot enforce a law
and has no right to try to do so
when the public do not want it enforced. Prohibitory legislation can
be easily secured once public opinion guarantees that it would be enforced. Until that time a legisla-
would be encroaching on public
right, would be doing a real injury
to 'tne cause of temperance and
would be inciting the public disregard for law in trying to force such
measure on the province.���Edmonton Bulletin.

Another Lawson Campaign.
Thomas W. Lawson has something to
say���something to tell President Roosevelt, the people, and the capitalists,
and he is going to spend $100,000 to
reach the brains of the continent. Law-
son declares that this expenditure is of
sufficient magnitude to warrent that his
remarks are going to be worth while.
Horticultural Display.
The question of opening an office in
the city of Toronto for a display of the
horticultural, agricultural and mineral
resources of this province, has been for
some time under serious consideration
by the provincial government. Although this step may ultimately be
taken it is not probable that any definite decision will be reached for some
time to come.
The Vancouver horse show held
last week was one of the best exhibitions of horse flesh held in the
west. A large number of entries
were made and the management
are to be congratulated on their
successful efforts.
Equipment is Coming From Several
Completed Contracts in the East.
Work is to Be Rushed
to Com letlon.
An enormous plant now being used by
the railway contracting firm of Messrs.
Foley, Welsh & Stewart in carrying out
their contracts for doubletracking the
Canadian Pacific Railway between Winnipeg and Fort William and the building of the Thunder Bay branch of the
Grand Trunk Pacific from Port Arthur
north to the main line, will be shipped
early next month via the C. P. R. to
Vancouver. It will be utilized in connection with the firms contracts for
constructing the Kitamaat branch a 100
mile section of the Grand Trunk Pacific
east from Prince Rupert. The magnitude of the outfit is apparent from its
diversified character. It embraces
scores of rock drills for driving tunnels
steam hoists, six hundred teams of
horses, ten miles of track dump cars,
and over one thousand peddler cars and
carts, besides other incidental plant.
With the equipment from points east
of Winnipeg will come thousands of
men who have been employed by this
firm for several years past. The work
of double tracking the C. P. R. between
Winnipeg and Fort William is virtually
finished as only three railway camps remain.
It is understood that the dirt will be
flying in earnest at Prince Rupert and
all along that section early in may.
On Flndlay River Gold.
R. G. McConnell, the Dominion government geologist, says that he does
not see why plenty of gold could not be
found in the Findley river district.
There are numerous streams and rock
formation consisting of gneiss and
schists favorable to the discovery of
the yellow metal. Mr. McConnell was
in the district a few years ago.
Canadian Representative.
R. L. Drury of Victoria has been appointed Canadian representative at
Tokyo, to look after the interests of the
Dominion in the carrying out the treaty
with Japan. He will be attached to
the British embassy and act under Sir
Claude MacDonald. His salary will be
$400 a month and expenses.
The G. T. P. Loan.
A London cable says that the list
closed on Wednesday of subscriptions
for ten million dollars four per cent,
mortgage bonds at 94 1-2 of the Grand
Trunk Pacific Railway. It is officially
stated that the underwriters will haye
to take a large proportion of the loan.
An Good Pointer.
The Boundary Creek Times says: The

and resources of its district. That's a

GENERAL   MERCHANTS
Merritt, B.C., March 26, 1908.
AN ADVERTISING FALLACY.
Many advertisers have a somewhat mistaken idea of the functions
of advertising. They consider that
the' mere purchase of space in an
advertising medium and the insertion of an advertisement should
forthwith bring them in a great
deal of business���in fact enough to
justify them in saying that advertising pays. When their attempt
does not have this immediate result, they at once come to the conclusion that advertising does not
pay.
A business man, who runs a trial
advertisement in a medium for a
single insertion, hopes thereby to
get returns from every reader of
the paper. When only one or two
��� answer, instead of being gratified,
he is disappointed. He forgets the
dozen or so more, who noted his
advertisement, but who, by reason
of the indolence of human nature,
neglected to reply at once, and
gradually forgot about it. There
was no second insertion to quicken
the memory and no third to stir
them up. The effect of advertising
.was lost on them.
Then there is another aspect 6i
the case. Looking from the reader's standpoint, he sees one firm
advertising spasmodically and another firm advertising regularly.
What is his natural conclusion as
to the merits of the two houses.
Undoubtedly he will be led, perhaps unconsciously, to attribute
greater solidity and progressive-
ness to the firm who uses space regularly. This is a psychological
fact. It means that it pays to advertise i^gularly, whether the advertiser can trace direct results or
not.
Again, an advertiser who asserts
that advertising does not pay, oftentimes has only himself to blame.
There is a way to advertise well
and there is a way to advertise ill.
It is for the advertiser himself to
make his publicity tell. Do not be
inclined to blame the medium and
blame advertising in general. Rather ask if you are obtaining the
best possible effects in the composition of your advertisement, both literally and typographically.
Many arguments can be brought
forward to support our position.
Persistency is needed in advertising
as much as in anything else if success is to be attained. Others have
succeeded and it has been through
continuous effort. Therefore, before condemning advertising, give
it a fair and reasonable trial.-The
Bookseller and Stationer.
