COWAN'S
That the Dominion authorities are
intent upon checking the passage of
Japanese into Canada from across the
border is proved by the strenuous
methods contemplated by J. B. Harkin,
private secretary to Hon- Frank
Oliver, who is at present in Blaine
making arrangements for a telephone
service to connect all roads and byways ln the surrounding district leading across the border from one country to the other.
Mr. Harkin recently received telegraphic Instructions to institute a system of inspection along the entire
border from Vancouver to the Great
Lakes ln order to keep out undesirables, besides Orientals and others
who endeavor to enter In contravention of the order-in-council. Mr. Harbin at once secured the services of Dr.
Monro, Dominion immlgiarton officer,
who will attend to the medical arrangements, while Mr. Harkin superintends the organization of the system.
Mr- Oliver's private secretary is
making Blaine the central point of
operations, owing to the fact that
Blaine is the weakest point and requires constant vigilance. Consequently it has been decided tha* ,a most
effective barrier could be erected by
installing telephones at all roads and
byways so that Orientals returning to
conduct fishing operations, not coming directly from the land of their
birth, and all other undesirables, wfll
find few loop-holes of escape, it Is
feared that many will leave the cars
on the American side and endeavor to
sneak into the Dominion, but all responsible persons in the surrounding
country will be warned to keep a wary
eye on the roads whenever possible
and immediately 'phone to headquarters in Blaine should any suspicious
characters be seen.

This Is Worth Knowing
THERE is an impression abroad that
only the exclusive custom tailors
cut up the best imported cloths.
Just to acquaint you with the true facts
we are in a position to announce that
the makers of
20th Century Brand
fine tailored garments for men, import
90 per cent of the cloth they cut up in
their tailor shops and import largely
from the most celebrated cloth makers
in Great Britain���cloths like Carr's Meltons, Galashiels, Rastric and Hawick
Tweeds, West of England Worsted Suitings and Trouserings. Only the finest
canvas, haircloth and trimmings are
put into suits or overcoats bearing their
well-known trade mark. In all respects
they are very superior clothes and are
recognized as such all over Canada.

CIVIL SERVICE REFORM.
Uliun ths Laurier government
makes up its mind that the public service is suffering at the hands of the
incumbents of the various offices it,
aloes not take it long to ,act. That the'
action is not a pyrotechnic display,
but a serious business, is shown in
tire appointment of Mr. Justice Cas-
sels to investigate the charges made
against officials In the Marine and
Fisheries department, and to prevent
the possibility of fixing things or
thwarting inquiry, sere ral prominent
officials have been suspended. What-'
ever the inquiry may bring out, there
is certain to be a reform in the Civil
Service, The government, witlfout
doubt, will take the report of the commission as a basis upon which to lay
rhe groundwork of a substantial measure, in tho drafting of which there
���ihould bo but one aim. that of making the Civil Service an efficient channel for the transaction of public business.
We hold  that  efficiency should  be
'iho first consideration in making ap-
polntments,    the    appointment    thus
mad*, should carry with it such salary
as to make the position worth keeping,
and as we believe the public service
should  have the  best  nren  available,
it is only reasonable that the salaries
in the public service should be somewhat higher than those paid by private
-concerns.   In the consideration of the
measure when it is before the House,
all party divisions should be laid aside
and the Opposition vie with the Government in placing upon the statute
book an  effective  and operative law.
that will safeguard t'ne public interest
throughout the Dominion, because, in
the future, it may be distant, they will
reap the benefit of having a system in
operation  satisfactory  to   themselves
and the country.    If this    course    is .,
taken' the session of 1908, which has j |
* in a sense been wasted thus far, may I
stand out in history noted for putting j |
permanently the  public service on a &
wise and useful footing. | _
We ask the school trustees to act in

MILLION AND A QUARTER GRANT
PROMISED BY GOVERNMENT
FOR FRASER IMPROVEMENT
(Continued from Page One.)
dredge under favorable conditions
will discharge from 400 to 500 cubic
yards per hour at an annual average
cost of a fraction over six cents per
cubic yard. The average cost of tin'
New York dredges Is given at 5'/��
cents. They claim for the Krushling
dreflge of a. coal less than O.ti of a cent
per cubic yard including allowance
for depreciation of the dredge. The
percentage of solid matter discharged
by the Fruhling dredge is from 60 to
as high as no per cent., as against 10
to 20 per cent, of the ordinary suction
dredge.
A dredge such as has been outlined, costing say $300,000 delivered
in B. C-, would meet both present and
future requirements and quite pos-
isibly obviate the construction of the
training walls to t.ie extent contemplated by Mr. Le Baron for some
years to come, if not indefinitely. All
that I at present feel justified in asking the government to consider in
connection with the scheme submitted
would be:
3. The purchase of the dredge described which befing for general use
in B. C need not necessarily be considered as strictly appliable to the
Fraser river, but us comipg under the
head of new dredging plan. Cost $300,-
000.
2. Construction of northern jetty
isoine 14,000 feet, from Point Garry I.)
opposite No. 3 red buoy, connecting
with and incorporating our presenl
dam, $200,000.    Total $300,000.
Taking this with (lie amounts iH-
ltady asked in connection with the
Fraser river of $73,000 and $35,000,
represents a total of $010,000.
II world for the next fiscai year at
least be tributary le lhe Frase- river,
i Vour petitioners are very much in
earnest in this matter and as can be
understood, if access is not given for
the best class of ocean going vessels
to their port, it means practically
commercial extinction. jMy sympathies
and professional opinion are both enlisted in the solution of this question.
Mr. Dp Baron from information furnished from my office has given a very
full description of the physical con-
ditlons governing the case���and with
a record of some twenty-seven years'
experience on similar work, recommends such training works as described.
