Hillcrest, Alta.. July Z.���Bf a prCe
cess of elimination counsel for both
sides in the Hillcrest inquiry attempted today to arrive at some definite
conclusion as to the cause of the explosion of June 19 and to place such
evidence before the commission as to
aid them at arriving at a definite and
expeditious conclusion in the matter
of the theory of an explosion by a
defective shot which somewhat was
shattered by the evidence of Harry
White, who was again called to the
stand. Ile swore as to the finding
of the body of Sam Charlton, fire
boss on duty at the time of the explosion.
It was Charlton who alone was authorized at that time to fire a shot
and the apparatus with which this
work was done was found on the body
as though never used. The cable was
wound around his body a.s though he
were carrying it, the key by which
alone the shot could be fired was in
his pocket and the battery was also
ln his pocket. No other keys to the
battery existed in the mine at that
time. Tlie possibility of a defective
shot was somewhat exploded as far as
Charlton   was   concerned.
No Defective Shot Reported.
Furthermore, evidence was given by
Fire Boss Adlain, that the night fire
boss left no report of a defective shot,
as he would have done had such oc-
cu;red during the night.    Adlain also

The strongest endorsement of a continuance of the
hundred years of peace which have existed between
Great Britain and the United States is to be found in the
whole-hearted way in which Britishers and particularly
Canadians join with their friends across the border in
celebrating American Independence Day.
American loyalty, alwayl enthusiastic and vociferous,
reaches its annual climax on the Fourth of July and whenever Britishers are found within the borders of the United States they are generally to the front, helping the
great republic celebrate its birthday.
Such a condition of things is highly commendable. Canada, Britain's greatest overseas dominion, is next-door
neighbor to the American republic. Ties of friendship I th<? farmers'
and trade are drawing them closer every year. Peace be-l ue" around
tween them is not only essential, it is inevitable, and the
closest relationship is bound to prevail without either losing one jot of its national identity or one tittle of respect
and reverence for its own flag.

Montreal. July 8.���Out into the
bright fresh air, where the city joins
tbe fields in Villo Bmard, a little fel-
low of three years, full of the childish
joy ol life, wandered off to pay at
about 0 o'clock throe days ago. ile had
no eon/ anions with him, only his little ttuck and a couple of other playthings, a>'< was his wont, and he trotted off happily, his mother feeling sure
tha he would turn up in an hour or
so, as soon as he felt hungry.
Al about 4: IJ0 yesterday afternoon
a boy named Kdwin Maynes, living at
445 Hamilton street, I'tnard ward, disco, i rid a little body in the bushes to
the vest, of his home. This morning
the body lies at the morgue, and the
Inijtiest will decide what was the
cause of death.
Search  for  Boy.
Alp'.tonse Duliaine was the little
one's name, his father being Arthur
Duhaine of :i!i7 Boulevard Monk, a
house situated nearly a mile from
win ic the body was found. The father is an insurance agent, and it was
noi until his return in the evening
that any great alarm was felt at the
absence of the little one.    Then  lhe
local police, and eventually the central detective bureau, were communicated wltb, and a search began. No
result was forthcoming the following
day. and il was only by chance that
the body was found last evening.
This is the story of Edwin  Maynes,
I who, although not the first to see the
body, was the first to find out what
it was. Maynes is a little lad of about
12 oi   13.    lie said last night:
"This afternoon 1 was talking to two
boy friends of mine, Lawrence Hal!
and Fred Dodd, and they told me
tiiere was a big wax doll in the hushes
not far from my home, near the aqueduct.    1 and a friend,  Walter Heider,
I went out to see what it was, and sure
enough we found it, and when we got
'close,  we saw it wasn't a doll, but a
I little hoy
"We  saw   his  shoes   and   stockings
i and  ins  shirt  open  across  the chest,
! and Lien, although 1 wasn't very
scared,  I  tell  you  we  run  out  pretty
j fast on to the road. There I saw two
i men who seemed to lie looking for
something. I asked them who they
were and they said detectives looking
I for a little boy, so i took them to the
spot, and then they got the body and
| telephoned for the wagon."
The baby's body, with the face blis-
I tereii   from  exposure  to  the  sun  and
! scratched from the brush, was lying
on its back, with the feet .-tuck In
the thick black mini into which he
had strayed. Tiiere were no marks of
violence and the surrounding and position of the body remove from the
minds of the police any suspicion of
foul  play.
It is probable, it was thought, Hint
the child died during the night of
the day he had left home. Tiio combined strain of fear, hunger and exhaustion, it was said, brought about
a collapse when the little feet were
caught in tlie mud.

Tragedies of His Life.
These were tlle Brent tragedies of

Other misfortunes flowed from.
these almost without number making
tlie record of sorrow which lias marked the family of Franz Joseph one almost without parallel in either ancient

"Por a long time, I have thought of writing you regarding what I term a
most remarkable cure effected by your remedy "Fruit-a-tives". You may publish
this letter, whole or in part, if you wish to do so. I have lived in this city for
more than 12 years and am well known.
I suffered from Rheumatism, especially in my hands. 1 have spent a lot
of money without any gooel results, until I used "Fruit-a-tives". I have taken
"Fruit-a-tives" for 18 months now, and am pleased to tell you that I am cured.
All the enlargement has not left my hands and perhaps never will, but the
soreness is all gone and I can do any kind of work. I have gained 35 pounds iu
18 months.    I am very grateful for what "Fruit-a-tives" has done for me".
Rheumatism of any kind ��� whether in hands, arms, feet, legs, joints or
back���is caused by uric acid in the blood. Uric acid is formed wlien there is any
stomach trouble, coupled with any disturbance of the kidneys, bowels or skin,
which prevent these organs from properly ridding the system of wsste matter.
This waste, or urea, acted upon by an acid condition of the stomach, forms uric
in the blood. The only way that Rheumatism, Sciatica and Lumbago can be
cured, is to cure the kidneys, regulate the bowels and improve the digestion and
skin action. "Fruit-a-tives*' cures Rheumatism because this wonderful fruit
medicine gives new strength and vitality to the stomach, liver, bowels, kidneys
and skin���purifies the blood and prevents the formation of an excess of uric acid.
Rheumatism is astubborn disease, but "Fruit-a-tives" will always cure it when
faithfully used according to directions.

"It is one of my axioms that business can no more be earned on without
advertising than it can without money. The man who has an article for sale
must tell the public in an intimate way what it is good for, how it is better
than similar articles, what is gained by using it, and what is lost by not using
it. And this must be told a thousand times."���President Green of the National Biscuit company, which, through continuous publicity, mostly in newspapers, has made the word "Uneeda", as applied to biscuits, worth $1,000,000
per letter.
Telling anything "a thousand times" to a shifting, changing and unsettled
element of the population, here today, but somewhere else tomorrow, would
hardly meet the above requirements. Persistent advertising, and that is really the profitable kind, is most successful in a medium like The News, whose
circulation is confined to the permanent earning classes of New Westmin-

would sue for $150, the additional $75

Aa Herrmann's case had already
been under consideration, und acting
on legal advice the council had tendered nine days' wages, the council
adhered to their former reply and ordered the communication to be filed.
Formal notice of the orders of the
railway commissioners and engineer's

from Sapperton terminus along the
North road, and Coquitlam furnishes
two members to a joint committee of

moving that the whole council form

Councillor Oxtoby explaining thut ho
east no reflection upon lhe two

was not being rigidly adhered to. and
no amount of explanation would alter
his opinions.
Ultimately he moved that the wholH
matter be dealt with by the water

Councillor Whiting moved, as an
amendment, and Councillor Baker sec-
onded, that the engineer's report be
adopted and that the clerk be instructed to go on with the work of issuing

and last year's scheme, which Maillardville people are fond of quoting,
when heaping opprobluin upon the
present proposition in the matter of
cost, waB referred to.
The reeve, exasperated, explained
that last year's scheme only gave the
bare cost of the work, without interest or provision for sinking fund and
they proposed to borrow $15,000. It
waB an Incomplete scheme und misleading. The reeve quoted the soli
citor in support of his statement that
the scheme was Incomplete and appealed  to  the  clerk.
The clerk's recollection was thai
the Incomplete scheme had reference
to tlie Rochester road scheme and the
reeve accepted the correction so tains tiie solicitor was concerned bul

statement of a councillor of las; year.

To make matters wo: Be for the English oarsmen, the Diamond Sculls, tbe
next important prize of the regatta,

The general opinion of ihe English

won their places in tlie final despite

Another purpose, scarcely, if at all
inferior, is that of regulating the runoff from the water-sheds of rivers,
on which, on account of tbe fact that
the laud is unsiiited
throguh its being too
or too rocky, or being at too high a
level and so exposed to frosts, trees
form tlie most profitable crop.
Forests maintained for this latter
purpose are called "protection fur-
cats." Possibly the best example of
such a forest, and certainly tlie largest protection forest in tlie world, is
the Rocky mountain forest reserve in
Alberta, which now lias au area of
20,*���.!���*; square miles.
Fortunately the Dominion government early recognized the value of
such protection forests, and. by the
creation of forest reserves in tlie west,
tiie great rivers of the plains having
their source in these water-sheds were
saved from the disastrous floods, the
low-water stages, and the filling-up
of the river beds with eroded soil, so
characteristic of the rivers originating
In the denuded water-sheds of the
eastern   United  States,
Heavy Cuts Spoil Land.
In t Ii is latter regioh many areas in
the Appalachian mountains, which
cover a large part of Pennsylvania,
Virginia, the Carolines and other
states, were very severely cul, and
have been repeatedly swept by fire,
so that the forests have been entire-
such an area, the water runs off almost immediately: If, on the Other
hand, area were covered with forest,
the soil would be more Bpougy and
able to retain water, and the water
would he hindered ln running off the
ground. Moreover, the water, in its
rapid run-oft. gradually takes with it
the soil, and, where, the soil cavering
tlie rocks is thin, it i.s apt to be washed away entirely. Hence tiiere Is lost
any possibility of growing a new forest on the now bare rock. The soil l
carried away eventually found its way j
to the larger rivers and harbors, and j
diil actual harm by .-ilting these up. 1
The increased regularity of flow in
the streams- excessively full in tlie j
spring and as scanty In midsummer -
greatly lessened the value of the water power situated en them. Accordingly an agitation sprang up to take
steps to reatforesl such areas as above
referri d  to, and  after  some  years  tin-
Weeks hill was finally passed in 1911,
setting aside  $11,000,000  for  the  pur-
1 pose of conserving the navigability of
navigable streams, by buying up and
j ultimately  reaf forest ing   the  denuded
areas   on   important   water-sheds.     At
present over  five  and  a   half million
acres  in tiie Appalachians have been
purchased  or approved   for  purchase.
Government's   Right.
The right of the federal government
to expropriate such lands by purchase;
hinged on the power of promoting nav-
gation,  given   by  the  constitution.   In
Canada tlie Dominion government was
also given the regulation of navigation
by  the  Hritish   North   America   act of
1867, and  it has  been  suggested  that,

of the Trent  river,  where, according
to a  report lately  issued by the commission   Of   conservation,   as   the   result   of   repeated   fires,  about   150,000
acres are practically desert land. The
Trent     valley     canal     which     passes
through   this   region   has  already  cost
the  Dominion government upwards of
$10,000,000,  and,  as  tlie  above   report

50 per cent of the total trades union
membership of the    Dominion.    The

The total trades union membership

The most outstanding of these, audi

which   Dr   Grant  Is  made,  is that on
jumping   Into   the   water,   though   he
could have been picked up by a number Of boats thut were near, he chose
to  discard   every   vestige  of  clothing
and  strike out  for the Storstad,  up!

"When 1 got iu tlie water I knew I1

a very creditable proportion of the
passengers kept their heads; and, of
the crew, he says Piat they behaved
In splendid spitit.
Dr. Grant desites to pay especial
credit to the C. P. K. for tlie magnificent way in which its officials
rose to the occasion of grappling with
the terrible situation Imposed upon
���hem by the disaster. All that money

To the impartial observer, with the
experience of other armies before him !
there can be little doubt that tne sup
pored military interests which demand
these class distinctions are nothing
more than the interests of the privileged class itselt. Nevertheless, one
thing must be said In justice to the
German aristocrat. As an officer he
takes his duties very seriously, and.
unless appearances are very deceptive, still performs them as well if
not better than the officers of more
democratic armies. Politically the
aristocracy as a class may be one of
the greatest stumbling blocks in the
way of Germany's development; from
the purely military standpoint It is
still an enormous asset.

The demand for a "democratization"
of the army, such as was raised in

It comes from the Social Democrats

whole with the attitude and arguments

Tribute to Capt. Kendall.
In-   (Hunt  pays  tin-  highest  tribute
to Capt. Kendall, who in all tlie whole
trying  situation   acquitted   himself as
man   and   in   accordance   witli   tlie
nest traditions of British seamen.
After jumping   Into   the   water  Dr.

As tlie result of this right of election many regiments are still exclusively noble, and ior the "burgerlich"
officer the field of choice is strictly
limited. In part this is the result of
tradition, which assigns particular
regiments to officers from particular
families. Hut to a large extent it is
due to the fact that the aristocrat naturally prefers service in Berlin or
some' other large centre to tiie dreary

Moscow, Idaho, July 3.���Former
Governor w. J. McConnell, now a special representative of the federal de-
pa tmeiit of commerce anil labor, in an
address today before tlie chamber of
commerce, arraigned the state of Idaho for not enforcing laws for the protection of laborers, whom, he alleged,
were shametully treated by some of
the  large companies.    He said:
"A company in south Idaho, through
its agents, went to some of the cities
in the middle west and made contracts
with laborers to come to its works in
southeast Idaho. These contracts provide that If tlie laborer works for the
company continuously 90 days he shali
have his transportation free.
"I learned from a recent Investigation that it was tiie policy or tho company to inrorm such employees a day
or two before the 90 days expired t:iat
their services were no longer satisfac-
tory. The cost or transportation was
deducted rrom the amount due the
laborer, which, in most cases, would
leave him but a few dollars."
Mr.   McConnell   said  he  learned  it
.was the custom to charge Greeks and
: Italians   employed    at    Pocatello    on
i railroad and other large  work $*i0 to
I secure a job, $1! per month to hold it
and  other charges  amounting to  $10

Private  Means Essential.
In  general  it  may he said  that  for
tlie Cerman officer a private income is
essential,    lt  is perhaps Just possible
for  him  to drag out an existence on
his   very   meagre  pay   in  one  of  the
frontier garrisons,   where   mess   expenses  are  small  and   no  social   demands are made upon  Ills purse.  Hut
even then the difficulties of making
both ends meet lire so great that only
quite exceptional characters have determination  enough to continue    the
struggle.     For   Pie   sons   or   officers
who have distinguished themselves In
the   state   service   and   exception   is
made in that financial aid is very often  given out of the kaiser's  private
purse.    In the two personal regiments
of the 1-aise:* the Gardes du Corps and
the First Foot Guards, both of whicli
are   stationed   in   Potsdam,   financial
help  is said  to be almost   invariably
given, and that in very large amounts.
Before entering Pie army and before
permission is given for him to marry
the  officer  must  produce evidence  to
show   that he  is aide to support himself "in  a  manner befitting bis sta-
tion."    The  necessary   income   varies
with every regiment.    In some exceptional   cases,  as  has  been   said,   it   is
iust possible ror the officer to live on
his.pay.    In   the Guard  Cavalry,  the
most   select  of  all   regiments,  an   income of at least   ,l7,4en to  ��600 is reunited,    ln  certain  Westphallan  and
Silesian   regiments,  patronised   particularly  by  tlie  scions of the great  industrial families, the standard of living
is probably much higher.    Put in general heavy expenditure is discouraged,
and running into debt is fatal to a
officer's  career.

Mannv lie Suffers Loss.
Vermillion, Alta., July 3.���A disastrous lire wiped out lhe business
premises and contents in Mannville
yesterday, aggregating in value In the
vicinity of $4(1,(1011. By far the U*ivi-
est loser la John B. Ilurch, whiWiad
his store, carrying general merchandize of upwards of $25,000 as well as
his warehouse with several thousand
dollars more In goods, completely destroyed, saving nothing but the books
and a few articles of goods that were
removed before the fire bad fully
enveloped the building.
By D. Maxwell Merry
Many people claim that advertising is full of
uncertainties, but it is not nearly so full of them as
the unitiated believe. The science of advertising
contains one unquestionable maxim���unless the
consumer is satisfied with his bargain, advertising
will never long pay for itself by its results.
Many people object to this statement and it
will be answered by the argument that a dishonest
advertiser can deceive everyone once, that the population is large and that the profits attached to advertised specialties are also large. The first part of
this reply might be true if people lived in soundproof
boxes and could not tell each other of their satisfaction or dissatisfaction with what they buy. You
might then be able to deceive everyone once.
���   In regard to the second part of the argument,
these who advance it have only to ask themselves
a simple question in order to perceive their mistake. What class of merchandise is most extensively
and   expensively   advertised?   Certainly   laundry
soaps, meat extracts and  similar  commodities  in
daily use���all competing with non-advertised products of the same character and all bearing a very
small profit; not diamonds, motor cars, pianos or
other things which carry a large profit.  The profits
on soaps and meat extracts are very small and on
advertised soaps and meat extracts are no higher
than those of equal merit that are not advertised.
Yet it is out of these cheap daily needs that advertisers make the largest fortunes���not out of the
diamond and automobile advertising. It is not clever
and deceptive advertising that sells the goods out
of which advertisers make fortunes. It is not the
advertising at all that really sells them after the
first time.   It is the quality of the goods themselves.
Hundreds or millions of dollars are every year expended on advertising. The whole newspaper press
of the world is practically supported by advertising. If your paper did not contain advertisements,
you would certainly have to pay from five to ten
times as much for your copy, supposing its present
standard of news and editorial merit is to be maintained and the expenses paid out of the sale of copies
Advertising gives the manufacturer an opportunity to tell his tale to the consumer just as paying
rent for a store enables the retailer to tell his tale
and show his goods to the buyer. Hy advertising
his store he will attract more callers, but his goods
must be right or the callers will go empty and angry
away. If the advertiser does not give good value
for the money that he takes his advertising will be
of no use to him. It will be even of less use to him
that the store to the storekeeper, for the latter sometimes knows his customer, can find him and make
excuses, but the general advertiser who has lost a
customer can never hope to
get him back.
