Discuss Matter of Paid Labor
School    Board   Censured ��� Women
Workers Not "Unfair"���Winter
The Trades and Labor council held
their regular monthly meeting last
night In the Labor Temple and discussed several matters of importance
to the local organised worklngmen.
President A. B. Christie was In the
chair and Financial Secretary Kund-
son and Acting Recording Secretary
Hogg officiated ln   their   respective
Delegates from the various trade
unions conveyed to the Trades and
Labor council the views ot their
respective trades on the question of
hiring a paid business agent. From
tne reports given it was shown that
the building trades were, on the
whole, in favor of putting a paid
agent in the field, while the barbers,
bartenders, typographers, street railway employees and some others
could not see that tbe agent would be
of much benefit to tbem. They, however, were willing to fall ln line and
pay their share of the expense lf the
Trades and Labor council saw flt to
make that move. President Christie
In speaking on the question* stated
that he did not want to "throw%cold
water on the proposal," but he believed that next spring would be a
more opportune time to put a paid
agent ln the fleld than at present,
when work would soon be slacking
down for the winter. The question
was not disposed of. but was left
over for (further discussion at a
meeting of the executive to be heli
next Wednesday night at R. A.
Stoney'a house.
The reports of the delegates showed that organized labor was at present ln a very satisfactory condition.
The typographers, bartenders, 4fi in
number, ciisarmakers, street rallwsy
men. 8(2 strong, teamsters and har-
lvers were all reported to have plenty
of work. The carpenters were not
quite so fortunate although practk.
ally all their men are now employed.
Most of the unions reported a numher
of new  members to the organization.
Wts.Idem Sam Jarlttnan, ' of the
Barbers' union, made a report regarding two alleged unfair, non-union,
���hops running In the city. Another
shop In Sapperton ln which a woman
Is working was slated as being unfair, lt being impossible for women
to Join the local barbers' union because lt Is affiliated with the International union. This report brought
forth an oration from Vice-President
Hae on the rights ot women to engage in the industrial world. He was
of the opinion that the woman could
not be called an "unfair" barber because sbe was prohibited from Joining the anion.
The refusal of the school board to
insert a clause in their contracts
calling for union labor to be used as
far as possible, brought forth a good
deal cf censure. The only remedy
offered was to vote for a labor school
board at the next election.
The financial secretary. II. Kund-
son. brought up the question of amusements for the coming winter, and it
was decided to lead off with a
smoker, a committee being appointed
to make arrangements. A dance will
be probably given later on in the
season. It was pointed out that the
700 members In organized labor in
this city should be In a position to
hrTTd some very successful social functions.
The Labor Temple committee reported that negotiations rere in progress for acquiring a building of their
own. The council proposes forming a
Joint stock company to sell shares In
any properly it may acquire to the
various unions and to individual
Before tho meeting broke up n
resolution drafted hy Vice-President
Hue was passed urging tlie union men
of the city to refrain from voting at
the forthcoming election, as neither
political party was representing the
best Interests of labor.
Mr. Kae explained to tbe Daily
News that his motion was meant to
show how the Trades and Labor councll stood on the political question, and
that, the concensus of their opinion
In the matter should go on record.

Much of Public Interest���Bringhurst's
Paper  to   Be   Printed���Moving
Picture Show*���Gas Escape..
The flre chiefs are holding some
very Instructive and interesting sessions in their anual convention now
in progress in Odd Fellows' hall, Vancouver. One of the most valuable
papers yet read before the convention
was that by Secretary Brlnghurst of
the association on the subject of
"Flre Prevention and the Flre
Chief." It showed the necessity of
more public,attention being paid to
the lire question and more precaution
taken to carry out the orders of the
chiefs. Tbe address appealed very
forcibly to the convention, and lt was
decided to have the paper printed in
the form of a pamphlet.
A paper on "The Moving Picture
Show," with reference to the firefighters, was given by Deputy Flre
Marshal H. C. Chandler of Tacoma.
He discussed the construction of
booths, the emergency provision,
that should be made, the matter of
wiring, the proper care of films ahd
practically every consideration which
should be made ln connection with
picture shows. The chiefs expressed
themselves as being in accord with
the line of argument followed In the
address. Strict regulations and strict
enforcement would accomplish much.
Cheap buildings, cat&esfe'ness of owners and recklessness on the part ot
the public were enumerated as dangers toward fire.
How to prevent flres and explosions
caused by the escape of illuminating
gas was another subject for discussion. Chief-Haley of San Jose, Cal.,
advocated that ln all buildings "cutoffs" should be placed on the service
pipes bo that the gas supply could
be  cut   off  if   necessary.

Commissioners Grant Licenses to Many.
No    Extension    During    Fair���Letter
from  Local. Option Office  re
Chinese  Liquor.
Alderman J. J. Johnston, acting In
the mayor's absence, occupied the
chair at the quarterly meeting of the
license commissioners which was
held yesterday evening in the council chambers of the city  hall.
The other commissioners present
were David Gilchrist and Alderman
J. Campbell, with City Clerk Duncan
and Chief of Police Bradshaw In attendance. After the minutes of the
previous meeting had been read and
adopted, notice of the suggested
transfer of license of the Holbrook
hotel. Front street, was put before
the meeting iind agreed to.
Joseph Freeman, proprietor of the
Central hotel and restaurant, wrote
asking permission to close the latter portion of his premises for not
more than five days tn order that he
might make the rooms more up to
date with fresh paint. Permission
was readily granted.
Superintendent D. Spencer, of the
Vaneouver Local Option organization,
in the course of a circular letter
which has been forwar.ied to the
commissioners of Vancouver, Victoria
and this city called attention to the
fact that large qu^itltles of various
kinds of strong liquors were being
imcorted Into the ports of the three
cities mentioned by Chinese. The
writer proceeded to tell of this liquor
being transferred all over the province, thus It came about that excise-
able liquors were being sold without
a license. He maintained that some
of these drinks were of a strength
greater than whisky. He desired that
a rigid enquiry be made into the
whole transaction and the merchants
tnkeu to task for selling strong
liquors under the guise of Chinese
While the chairman was In favor of
leaving the matter In the hands ot
the chief to deal with. Alderman
Campbell moved that the letter be received and filed for reference. Com
missloner Gilchrist seconding the
motion, which cnrrled.
Chief Bradshaw ln the course of a
pleasantly brief report stated that
since the last meeting of the commissioners a barkeeper, John Lynch,
of the Colonial hotel, had been fined

On Tuesday afternoon the Liberal
candidate met a large number of
electors In tbe school house at - Hatzic Prairie, with Stanley Sharpe tn
the chair, in order to attend this
meeting citizens gathered from a
large area of surrounding country,
ln many cases walking three and
four miles���in a drenching rain���n
order to manifest their sympathy
with the government cause.
A largely attended meeting at Mission followed on Tuesday at 8 o'clock
in the evening, and going from there
Mr. Oliver addressed meetings at
Aggaslz and Harrison Hot Springs
yesterday evening and afternoon.
tl is becoming more and more apparent as the days go by that the
government candidate has with him
an overwhelming preponderance of
the best and most representative
thought In the present campaign, and
evidences are abundant all over the
riding that the opposition machine is
nies should be spent in such a scandalous way. Other evidences there
are also In tbis riding, as in other
parts ot British Columbia, that men
ln the pay ot the people, road foremen and others tn tbe provincial service, are permitted to use the influence which their office has dressed
tbem in, to interfere ln a most demonstrative and conspicuous fashion
in political affairs. That such a condition of things has become almost
Intolerably obnoxious to the people ls
growing manifest ln the campaign
now In progress, and the suggestion
is commonly heard that some telling
rebuke should be given to such a
glaring and offensive breach of publlc trust.

majority can be safely predlcte I for

a pulp mill In this province and lt ls
only a few days ago that the concern
began actual work. Mr. Wood stated
in an interview that he considered
British Columbia the laBt resort of
the papermaker. Owing to the large
size of the timber on the Paciflc
coast the ordinary pulp mill prac
tice had to be varied, his..*eompany
had to put ln a band mill machinery
in order to break down the big logs
Into conveniently sized nieces for the
pulp mill to handle. Mr. Wood declares that in time when capital Is
interested ln the pulp Industry here
lt will be shown to be a very profitable one and will be encouraged by
the government of the province.

Columbia as a trader in the employ
of the Hudson Bay Company, having

the bars of the Thompson River at
Tranmillle. Kenneth Morrison and
Donald Gunn, also of the Hudson Bay
service, were ln company with    Mr.
It was the news of this find, carried first to Fort Langley and thenc9
quickly distributed to the outside
world, that brought the rush of miners from California and all parts
of the globe which ensued In 1858
and succeeding years.
Mr. ^ Mclvor, despite his years���he
is considerably over eighty���still preserves much of that spirit and physique which belonged peculiarly to
the men who served the Hudson Bay
company ln Its earlier days. He continues to get about with considerable activity. His memory is particularly bright and he takes a lively Interest ln public affairs. For many
years past he has devoted himself
to agriculture, being among the first,
lf not the very first, to settle at Port
Mr. Mclvor suggested, in conversa
tion with The News, that he is in
thorough sympathy with the principle
Involved ln the recproclty agreement
with the United States and Intimated
that the government candidate would
have his hearty support ln the present election.
Despite the fact that the game
which will decide the resting place
of the world's championship is only
three days off. there was an absence
yesterday at ��� Queens park for what
was scheduled as a stiff try-out of
the present holders of the premier
title. Surprise was expressed on all
sides at the absence of Doughy
Spring, who it musl he confessed did
not show that brilliancy of form last
Satur lay with which his name has
so long been connected. No reason
was given for Doughy's absence and
it would be well that he attend this
afternoon when the last spin will be
held preparatory to the clash of Saturday.
Bearing In mind the fact that Westminster require at the least two goals
ere the championship is safe for the
Royal City, this apparent laxity on
the part of the men who are receiving big sums of money for their
weekly work, is not being lost on the
citizens who have year in and year
out financially backed the club.
Tliose players who hy their inexplicable absence are putting their fellow
members at a big disadvantage it maybe have too long been pampered by
the fans who have followed the fortunes ot tbe'Salmon Bellies.
Doughy Spring is too good a man
to lose from the line up of the champions and must turn out to the practices of the club if the Westminster
twelve ls to come through with flying
colors on Saturday. The fact cannot
be disguised that the clash on Saturday will be without question one of
the hardest ln the history of the
Fraser river valley club and it therefore behoves every man-Jack to be
there with the goods when the whistle
sends the respective teams off on the
hunt for the long end of the score.
Without strict attention to practice
stlckhandlers cannot expect to
emerge on the winning side and the
fact is' not hidden that local enthusiasts do not like the look of matters as they are presented to them
by the absence of some of the players
at this crucial time, a time when
every member should he on the
ground prepared to do hls level best
by the city and the club officials.

Meeting at Calgary Argues Capitalists
Cause All War, Therefore Let
Them Fight Alone.
Calgary, Sept. 13.���Resolving to declare a strike ot the general workers
ln countries which consider the question of engaging ln war so that work-
era may witness the exhibitions of the
capitalists of the world who favor
hostilities, the delegates to the Dominion Trades and Labor congress now ln session in Calgary
hurled a bomb broadcast throughout
the world, which it ls believed by
them must have some effect on the
future activities of those who are in
any manner associated with tbe belligerent capitalist class.
On the second day ot the convention the first resolution adopted read
as follows:
"Whereas the workers of many
countries are now alive to the fact
that capitalists of the world cause all
wars and should be allowed to do all
the flghting, and whereas, the Idea of
a general atrike of the workers in
countries considering war is at present the most powerful preventative.
"Therefore be lt resolved that the
Dominion Trades and Labor congress
endorse the Idea of a general strike
of the workers between countries contemplating war. to prevent It, so that
the workers may see the exhibition
of fighting by these capitalists who
are fond of it.
"It is further resolved that the resolution be sent to tbe American Federation of Labor, the British Trades
Congress and the German Federation
of Labor and any other country with
a federation ot labor."
This was the most Important resolution adopted at the Tuesday's morning session   of the congress,   others
being the reccommendatlon that the
Congress make every effort to have
the government adopt a law requiring the payment  of  laboring  men's
wages by cheque illegal;   to make it
unlawful to permit a person afflicted
with contagious or infectious disease
to wort where food products are man-
factured;   to prevent the growth    of
the ..boy  scout  movement  in  Canada
aa tending to foster militarism among
the young; to the establishment   of
free municipal or provincial employment bureaus to offset the alleged
evil Influence of private employment
agencies, and that factory inspectors
be trades unionists and their present
number materially increased.
It was also recommended that an
act of parliament be passed "giving all
railroad employees the right to lock
switches with private locks to protect
passengers' lives from carelessness
of switch crews, the establishment of
a labor college in Canada to be
owned and controlled by the labor
unions of the Dominion; the closing
of saloons on Labor Day was also-
An amendment to the Lemieux act
providing that the chairman of the
conciliatory board act as interpreter
on disputed points after awards have
been made was also recommended,
this motion including the proviso
that all conciliation board meetings
be made public.
The motion that the congress re*
sent the insult offered organized

railroad employees was before that,
body, was carried unanimously.

German's Foreign  Minister.
Berlin, Sept. 13.���That the kaiser
is very much displeased with Herr
Klderlen-Waechter, the foreign minister, for the course the Moroccan incident has taken, ls generally understood. When the negotiations with
France have been completed and the
situation completed in creation by
the sending of German warships to
Agadir has passed Into history', the
belief is general that there will be a
new German foreign minister unless
the unexpected happens and Germany
comes out of the mlx-up with much
more credit than now seems   likely.
The kaiser Is now in personal command of the situation. Not a step ig
being taken without flrst consulting
with him. He has followed with the
keenest interest the labor situation
in Great Britain. When it seemed
that the strikes would spread so that
it would result in the industrial paralysis of the power which he really
holds in respect, there was a marked
stiffening in the German attitude towards France. Even now it Is hoped
that as a result of the British labor
situation Germany may get more than

Phoenix, Sas.���The reciprocity pact
is not a treaty but an arrangement or
agreement which may he terminated
by either party. It preserves the
trade autonomy of both Canada and
the United States.
Free fruit, free vegetables, free
fish and oysterB, and lower duties on
meat and a long list of other necessities, are some of the things about
reciprocity which appeal to the wage
The Capital says reciprocity will increase the cost of living. If there
was the slightest fear of this there
would not be a single Conservative
protest against it. Forcing up the
cost of living has heen the aim of the
Conservative party for ths last sixty
years, However, as Mr. Borden affirms positively that it will lower the
cost of living we are content to let
our contemporary settle the matter
with its friends, especially as Mr.
.Maclean  acrees with   Mr.   Borden.
In the matter of trading, we are
asked what show would one Canadian
have against ten Americans? Well,
what show have, three grocers on
Pender street against ten grocers,
say. on Hastings street? What show
have ei^ht millions of Canadians
against forty millions of people in
the United Kingdom? Should not
Australia with less than four millions
refuse to trade with us who are two

argument is ridiculous. Let us turn
It around. Why should the United
States sacrifice a market of ninety
millions in return for us granting
them a market of eight millions?
Reciprocity, says Hutchinson, the
big Winnipeg implement dealer, wlll
give Canadian farmers at least a million dollars a year on their agricultural implements alone. Not so bad
for a start.
All signs point, to a great Liberal
victory. Men who are attending

A Clear-Cut Issue.
(.From the Farmers' Weekly Sun,
If ever there was an election In
Canada ln which the privileged few
stood on one side and the unprivileged many on the other, surely this
ls that one.
The men who form the backbone
of the anti-reciprocity forces are
the packers, with their 50 per cent,
dividends; the maltsters, who have
been buying Canadian barley at an
average of 19 cents below Buffalo
prices, and (landers and promoters
who have become millionaires by the
floating of mergers which the present system renders possible. On the
other side is the great mass of unorganized farmers who are asking
simply that they be allowed to sell
certain of their products in wheat,
but for an artificial barrier, to be re-
That GIN PILLS Positively Cure Rheumatism
Rheumatism is a dreadful disease.   Only those, who have had it, can Appreciate
tlie   agonizing   pain ��� the excruciating torture ��� that   racks   the   body   when
Rheumatism sets in.    No wonder tliose, who have been cured of Rheumatism by
GIN PILLS, are so grateful and so enthusiastic.
They gladlv testify that GIN PILLS cured them and want all the world to
Alex. Moore Esq., is one of many
hundreds who know that GIN PILLS
will cure Rheumatism, lie writes from
Newburgh, Ont.
"My father had been troubled with
Rheumatism for a number of yc^s. He
tried two doctors but got no relief, when
my uncle insisted on him trying GIN
PILLS. lie purchased a box and after
taking GIN PILLS for a week, found
that tliey were giving him much relief,
lie then bought three more boxes, which
were tlie means of curing him. lie is
now a strong man���in good health���aud
able to attend to his daily work���anil all
the credit is due to GIN PILLS."
They know about GIN PILLS down in Nova Scotia too. In fart, GIN PILLS
are the old standby all over the Maritime Provinces because GIN PILLS really
cure Rheumatism.    An old gentleman in Yarmouth, N.S. says :
"I have been bothered with Rheumatism for the past year ar.d have taken
a good many kinds of medicine, but found no relief. One day, a friend advised
me to try GIN PILLS and after taking a few taxes, I felt like a new man.    1 want
you to know how thankful I am for the relief they gave me and would advise all sufferers to take GIN PILLS".
In New Brunswick, GIN PILLS have cured hundreds of men and women of
Rheumatism.    Mr. Wilson of Hartlield, N.H., is one of the many who owes his
good health and strength to GIN PILLS,    He writes:    "It affords me  great
pleasure to convey not only to you, but to all sufferers from Back Ache and
Rheumatism   the   great   relief I have obtained from the use of GIN PILLS.
I am sounding the praises of GIN PILLS
to everyone suffering as I did". Robert
M. Wilson.
Back to Nova Scotia for the fourth
letter from D. J. Lawler of Ogden.
"I have been troubled with Rheumatism so bad that I could not work. A
doctor tended me and told me to go to
the hospital bnt all to no good until a
cousin told me to try GFN TILLS. I did
so, and after taking a few boxes, I am
perfectly well".
These written words and signed statements from well-known people are the
best possible guarantee of the value of
GIN   PILLS.     They   prove  that   GIN
PILLS will give prompt relief���and will completely cure���every trace of Rheumatism, Sciatica, Lumbago, Pain In The Back, Kiuncy Trouble or any weakness
of the kidneys or bladder. Yon may try GIN PILLS before you buy them, Write

Prayer   Book   May   Be   Revised   and
Certain   Revisions  Take  Place
London, Ont., Sept. 13.���The Ne
Temere decree caused the most animated discussion in the Anglican
synod yesterday, led by Hon. S. H.
Blake. It will be continued today.
Mr. Blake made two motions, the flrst
to have a joint committee appointed
from both thv\ upper and Jower
houses of the General Synod to confer with other religious bodies Into
the matter, and to recommend any
chause in legislation to remedy the
existing evils of the marriage law
The second was a memorial to the
government to set aside the Court
of Exchequer as a court to which all
questions ot the validity of marriage
would be referred.
Mr. Jones, K. C, of Toronto, and
Dr. Davidson, of Montreal, lead the
opposition against the resolutions,
both declaring that the Ne Temere
decree did not affect the marriage
laws of Quebec, decisions and rulings
on the cases in question being made
on the civil law of the province,
which had been broken when the
marriage contract had not been solemnized In the manner prescribed by
civil law.
The lower house discussed the
adoption, enrichment and revision of
the prayer book ani appointed a
Joint committee limited by the following recommendations:
1. That In any adoption, enrichment or revision of the Book of Common Praper, there be no change of
doctrine or of principles, It being always understood that the ornaments
rubric be left untouched.
2. That whatever adoptions, enrichments or revisions shall be made
shall be inserted in tbe body of thc
book In the place where they are appropriate.
Dr. Parkhurst, ln the New York
Evening Journal, compared the efficiency of the Canadian and American
Judiciary and legal system. The decision ls eminently favorable to Canada. When a man so distinguished
as the doctor gives us the trophy
there surely must be something In lt.
In spite of all national egotism lt
then appears that one part at least of
our government machinery ls better
administered than the corresponding
department In the U. S.
Dr. Parkhurst goes on to say;
Under a government like our own,
when criminals go undetected, we
blame the police, and  when detected
criminals go unpunished, we charge lt
to  the court.
It ls easier to attribute results to
some cause that ls Immediate and obvious, than to trace them back to
conditions that are more remote and
less apparent.
Even granting that detective work
Is a science, the science wlll not be
practised by the police force unless
there ls something impelling thereto
lying outside of the members of the
force���and, granting that lt ls the
function of the courts to deal with
suspects according to the requirements of enacted law, they cannot be
counted upon to discharge that function unless roused to It by some influence other than the statute book
or their oath of office.
The Power Behind the Law.
Policemen will catch criminals
when Impelled to It by the pressure
of public sentiment; and. when tho
malefactors have been caught they
will be convicted If they are guilty,
and punished if they are convlctei.
provided the motive power ln the Judicial machinery is not simply the
mlad of the Jury, but the collective
and determinative spirit of the people.
The publlc will have Just what It
wants, and the character of the work
done by the three departments of
government will be according to the
intelligence of the general mind and
tbe tone of the general conscience.
While lt is true that the apparent
reason for the non-enforcement of
certain statutes in New York City is
that the Mayor has no Interest in seeing them enforced, the fundamental
reason for lt Is that existing statutes
are rendered powerless by the withheld support of public sentiment.
If they had the Instinctive demand
of the people back of them, the mayor
would enforce them and could not
help himself. The moral sense and
will of the people are above law'for
they make lavr and make court and
executives; and, when we criticize
the delinquency of public officials
without taking Into account that their
acts are, as a rule, level with tbe Intellectual and moral condition of the
people that they represent and from
whom all their authority ls derived,
we do the same thing that a physician does when he doctors the symptoms of his patients instead of addressing himself to the disease from
out of which the  symptoms   spring.
We could learn something in this
respect of studying our neighbors
across the Canadian line. They are
distinctly a law and order people,
which we are not. They have a consciousness of authority and a respect
for it. That consciousness and respect constitute the law's effectiveness.
Crime is felt to be an offense not
simply apalnst the statute but against
the public which declares Itself In
thc statute. It Is, therefore, taken
for ganted that the laws will be
obeyed and that violation of them
means arrest and that arrest means
conviction and punishment.
It ls all founded on the prevalence
of the leRaluy of the public mind, the
soundness of the public conscience.
They have up there a law forbidding
the sale of liquor at any time between 7 o'clock Saturday night and
7 o'clock Monday morning, and lt ls
In the year 1909 in one province
of the Dominion there were 129 arrests for violation of excise. Out of
the 129 there were 125 convictions.
In another province, out of 168 arrests for the same offense, there
were  158  convictions.
On consulting the statistics of
crime and arrest recently furnished
by the commissioner in command of
the Royal Northwestern Mounted
Pollce, the reader will discover that
the figures run about the same way
In other lines of offence.
This is not saying that the Canadian police are, by nature, any more
competent than our own. or that Canadian judges are naturally more loyal to their Judicial obligations than
those who sit In our courts. It U
simply saying that Canada has a conscience sufficiently urgent in its exactions to become tbe mainspring of
action in Canadian administration,
working with the power of an intangible but irresistible Influence in all
the ongoings of legislative, executive
and Judicial life.

The annexation bogey and othe^iais-

ever, is the truth published as to the
real tenor of the meetings, but simply a glowing account of what. tKe J
Conservatives did, with sarcasm at
their opponents. These. If DOftk going Into the districts wbirS %ll&>lne*t-

away some of the late member's
staunchest supporters, for thej" 'feel
that if Taylor can so twist meetings

that he is indeed a dangerous man
to trust.
Another element working to the rejection of the late member is his utter uselessness in the House of Commons and the dislike his own party

Dear Sirs'.���
The effect of the Reciprocity Treaty with the United States,' tt :1t goes
into effect, ancl it looks altogether
likely that it will, will mean an advance of about 40c per bushel in the
price of White Beans, consequently
prices of Baked Beans must advance
accordingly. ���> ft
We have at the present time limited stocks of the very finest Baked
Means in Canada. Our prices, as you
know, are right', our sales have been
steadily increasing throughout Camilla, which is proof positive that the
quality is right and also the price.
A word to the wise is sufficient. If
vou have not already hooked your
orders would respectfully recommend
you to wire promptly.
We enclose Price List ani await
your valued orders, Bubject to confirmation.

Lalor, Conservative candidates in
East Elgin and Haldimand, respectively, arc among the directors of tlie
canners, whose circular admits that
it is "altogether likely" that the reciprocity agreement, will go Into effect
and that tho price of beans will go
up about 40 cents a bushel. The price
of baked beans will be tempere I by
the reduction in the duties of one-
quarter of a cent on all canned vegetables coming into Canada.

Sir Charles Tupper hajr written a
letter ln which he says that he considers the proposed ���reclpJ'&ltV Agreement fraught with daifgbf to British
institutions in Canada. Sir Charles
saw no danger to British institutions
in Canada when he journeyed to
Washington himself in 1888 in an attempt to negotiate a ' reciprocity
arrangement approaching1 as nearly
as possible the treaty Of 1854. Sir
Charles then was not bji)y, willing
to give privilege for privilege, but he
was willing to open tne, fishing waters of Canada to the fishermen of
the United States as a,.h,Qjius,
Sir Charles apparently did not fear
that reciprocity would endanger British institutions in Canada, when he
journeyed to Washfrfgtdn Vgftin In
1891, ln company *rfth Hon. Sir John
Thompson and Hon. George E. Foster
with what he called "an unrestricted offer of reciprocal f(fr Wilfrid
Laurier during a debate ln the House
of Commons at a subsequent date declared that Sir Charles Tupper was
the only Canadian who, so far as he
knew, had "offered to;, barter away
certain privileges oja. JLbeJiaais. of unrestricted reciprocity." Sir Charles
In reply denied thathe had offered unrestricted reciprocity, but admitted
that he had made an "unrestricted
offer of reciprocity." Restricted or unrestricted. Sir Charles made the offer of reciprocity Yan^nfroHldj ; no
doubt, have been glad had it been
accepted. , \\, _
But Sir Charles is  so constituted
that It is always possible for him to
see  danger  in  anything proposed  or
done by a Liberal.    It will be feqalled J
that   in 1H00 Sir Chafles Bawgf ave
danger in the Brtish preference. In a
speech delivered in Quebec on March
SlBt  of   that   year   he  vlgorusly     attacked Sir Wilfrid Laurier for giving
a tariff preference to-fiieat,  Britain
without  exacting -pirefy;ej4ial   treatment  of .Canadian, 'prodtfitft's   on' the
British markets,   ft *'#��. at the same
time that Sir Charles denounced Sir
Wilfrid Laurier for seeking to involve
this country in an annual expenditure
for imperial defence. He boasted that
he  had heen  mainly "instrumental in
the breaking up of the old   Imperial
Federation  League, which  stood    for
colonial  contributions to fhe support
of the  British army  and  navy,    and
wanie 1 his hearers against any policy  that   would   make  Canada responsible for any  regular contribution  to
the   permanent   military   defences   of
the   Empire.     	
ls given to the attitude assmned by
Sir Charles then by the fact that at
that very time the Conservatives
were denouncing Premier Laurier for
being dilatory and faint-hearted in
fhe offer of Canadian assistance to
Great Britain In South Africa.
It was about the same time ithe
year I!)00) that Sir Charles Tupper
decrarcd that Sir Wilfrid ,-Laurhr was
too English for him. "As far as Sir
Wiri'rid Laurier is concerned, yon can
say that he is too English for me with
his program of Imperial Federation."
These were the words in wheh Sir
Charles  expressed  himself.
It will thus be seen that it wouid
he a very difficult matter for 8fr Wilfrid to so arrange his conduct as to
win the approval of Sir Charles Tupper. Sir Charles professes to scent
danger to the British preference now,
and thinks the" danger sufficient to
arouse the hostility of all loyal Biitish subjects. But he denounced the
British preference when it was introduced. He professes now to fear for
the safety of British insttutlons in
Canada because of the proposal to
ratify a fair and honorable reciprocity agreement; yet he strove in vain
when he was ln active; politics himself to secure a similar Arrangement
and would have paid A good deal
more for lt than Canada proposes to
pay now If he could have secured it.
He is very strong on -imperialism
now, yet he boasted that single-handed he had blocked the movement of
the Imperial Federation League in
favor of colonial contributions to the
permanent military defences of the
Empire. He wants all loyal British
subjects who value connection with
the Crown to stand by'the Empire
against Sir Wilfrid Laurier now; yet

and former champions, including the

ito the fact that the latter has
I appealed to a higher court, the commissioners were prevented from taking any action, the case being sub
Judlce, but the chief pointed out that
acting on Instructions from Mayor
Lee he had handed to his worship a
full report of the Lynch case, as It
was possible that tbe bartender might
have his license rescinded. The
meeting ln the absence ot tbe mayor
took no action until the next session.
A number of applications for bartenders' licenses were before the
commissioners, flve of the applicants
being present to answer any questions which might be put to them
ere their  paners  were  franked.
Alderman Campbell asked the chief
lf he had asked the local representative of the  Bartenders'   union  as  to
think the mi'ltiers of the council
should take thi* Map. There was no
treason why the byWaw dealing wltb
��� the subject should be amended to
permit of licensed houses keeping
open for extra time.
I Alderman Campbell agreed with
Mr. Gilchrist and maintained tbat the
commissioners had it in their power
to grant this extra time. If the commissioners had not, then tbe council
had. This necessary permission had
been granted before and surely could
again. There would be thousands ln
Westminster for the fair week and
many who would desire to stay until the closing Item at Queens park
and would perhaps wish for a bottle
of lemonade or other such soft drtna
before retiring for the night.
The chairman took exception to the
remarks of the previous speaker, and
said tbat he had never remembered
that special permission was granted
to saloon or hotelkeepers to keep
open later than allowed by the law.
It this had been done, it was a direct
contravention of tbe act and should
never have been sanctioned by the
authorities. If tbe commissioners desired the question to be brought before the council In the form of a
recommendation he could not prevent
them, but as an alderman he would

Chief Bradshaw repliel that lt was

who desired to take out bartenders'
A number of applicants were absent and lt was the desire of the
commissioners to grant papers only
to these who were at the meeting.
After It had been explained that lh
the absence of the chief on a holiday
the matter of notifying applicants to
be present at that time might have I
been overlooked it was decided to
admit those who had been vouched
for by their respective- employers and
grant them temoorary papers until
official confirmation at the next sitting. |
In a straight forward talk to the
newly admitted bartenders. Alderman
Johnston snoke.on the many responsibilities of those who served out refreshments to customers within the
city and reminded them tbat they
could do a great deal of service to
of the code and was surprised that
the commissioners had decided to
take no action with retard to the
license of that man. Bartenders had
to bear in mind that they as members of the community would be called upon from time to time to assist
the police. This was part and parcel
of their duties and by always seeing
that the saloons in which they were
respectively engaged were conducted '
in an orderly manner they would
prove a boon to the city. Every consideration should be likewise given to
the commissioners. No attempts
Bhould be made to evade tbe law. if
the business was given every attention then nothing would be said to
them, but the city authorities had decided to act with a strong hand where
lt was found out that matters were
not being conducted as they should
be. I
Exhibition  Extension Tabooed.       j
Commissioner Gilchrist asked
in the event of a saloonkeeper asking for an extension of time during'
the exhibition week, what action tho
commissioners would take. This was
ln view of the fact that no regular
meetings of the *mrd would be held
untll long after the fair week, and
he was strongly opposed to having a
special session for the purpose of
hearing applications. i
Alderman Johnston, replying, said
that he could not see how any such
application could be granted as lt
would be a direct Infringement of the
act. Personally he was opposed ln
the strongest manner to any exten-1
slons being granted. If It was the
desire of the commissioners to look
with favor upon any applications
from hotel or saloonkeepers of the
city, it would require a special vote
to rescind the act    and   he   did not,
said he was not in a position to
vouchsafe any reply, the matter being
one for the city solicitor.
The matter settled without any deciding action being taken, but from
the opinion expressed by the chairman it is almost safe to predict that
no application would be brought to
tbe notice of the council.

Grand Stand Tickets All Gone.
Infoimation wns received in the
city yesterday evening that the en^
tire seating accommodation on the
grand stand at Recreation park for
the big game had heen sold out by
mail order. Remembering that In the
past a certain number of tickets had
been reserved by the Westminster
officials for the Terminal City patrons
of the game. It would have only been
right that this action should have
been reciprocated by the Vancouver
directors. While there are still a
lar; \ number of bleacher seats un
ticketed it is likely from the present
outlook that rain may spoil tbe match
and thus Westminster followers wlll
be obliged to sit the engagement out
under unfavorable weather conditions.
Rushing to the Coast.
Peter Peebles, one of the most
ardent fans of the champions, Is In
receipt of a telegram dated In the
���east from Rev. J. S. Henderson,
honorary president of the Westminster club, that he Is, to use his own
words, "flying to the coast for the
great game."
Mr. Henderson, who has been holiday-making in the old country and on
the continent for some months, has
been closely identified with the Sal
mons for many years/and has evinced
a keen desire all through the season
to be apprised of the results of the
various matches.
Owing to the necessity of playing
tbe last game ln the Northwestern
Baseball league between Vancouver

Intends to apply for permission to
purchase the following described | useless
association. It is not often that a
Japanese naval or military officer permits himself such latitude as did
Capt. Ota on this occasion, and tbere
is some talk about the application of
the disciplinary law by way of punishment for the views he ventured to
The gist of Capt. Ota's philippic is
that the navai authorities are making
a mistake in being too eager to complete the works on land, seeing that
the navy necessarily has its efficiency on sea and naval strength can
be increased only by the construction
of a powerful fleet.
To Illustrate this contention. Capt.
Ota pointed to the flve naval stations
on the coast of this country. In establishing these naval -stations the
country was divided into flve artificial
sections, a naval station being established ln the best barbor ln each division: but as coast defenses none of
these has any real significance. Eacb
Japanese naval station ls presided
over by an admiral or a vice admiral,
with a rear admiral for chief staff offlcer. Outwardly they are very Imposing as compared with the big
naval stations of tbe foreign naval
powers, but viewed from a strategic
standpoint, most of them are valueless.
| Deprecates Big Outlay.
, I    In this context the captain stated
,that  attacks   hy  an   enemy's   fleet
woul 1 come on the southwestern side
of this country, aa more than once
evinced  in   the   late  war.    The  cap-
��� tain reviewed the various naval sta-
! tlons, denouncing; Malxuru as not only
but rather harmful, since It
warships are equipped. Whereas
12-lnch guns are recognized as composing the main battery, subsidiary
elghtVinch guns tare generally carried. At flrat sight this may appear
a happy combination, but in practice
It Is otherwise, seeing tbat' the warships have to store shells of different sizes, a circumstance calculated
to entail great inconvenience and
confusion in the supply of shells during actual engagements.
In the course of an explanation of
bis reasons for making this expose
of the defects of the Japanese navy,
Capt. Ota is quoted as saying:
"When I came back from Europe
for the second time after the war
with Russia, I could not but muse
when I saw the Inner workings of the
navy, especially ln the light of the
knowledge I had of European navies.
I state emphatically that our navy is
formidable In appearance. The heart
ls rotten. If the existing defects aro
not speedily remedied the nation will
some day have to pay the penalty,
and ln the Interim to bear ever larger
and larger appropriations to no useful purpose."
The captain said that he had resigned because the naval authorities
had turned a deaf ear to his representations.

tion, however, it was apparent tbat
something was wrong with hls craft.
A bout a half mile from here his course
suddenly deviated sharply to the
left, and as he approached tbe rising
ground southward of town he appeared unable to elevate his machine,
nor did he slacken hls speed until
the craft dashed full Into two trees.
At a height of about forty feet the
right plane of the machine struck the
right hand tree wjth a spllnterng
sound and the force of the blow sent
tbe craft careening over against the
other tree. Tbis second blow finished the left plane and with both
wings thus crumpled the airship hovered for a fraction of a second and
then turned turtle as it Btarted on
its fall to earth.
In fall the tall piece was doubled
up by the force of the wind, and when
the machine struck lt was with the
tall piece and propellers downward,
thus spllnterng both propellers and
the rudder. Fowler remained ln his
Beat until the aeroplane struck, when
he was hurled against the motor and
through the debris of the rudder tq
the ground.
Spectators by the score who had
witnessed Fowler's fall from a distance rushed to his aid and his Injuries quickly received attention. His
mechanicians were soon on the scene,
having arrived - on the special train
which is following the course. Some
of the broken pieces of the craft were
replaced with substitute parts carried
on the train, but some had to be sent
to Reno for repairs.

projected at Chlnhai bay might be
necessary, but even here he deprecated the outlay of gigantic capital.
So long as Japan's main naval force
ls concentrated at Sasebo it is unthinkable that a small section of the
enemy's fleet will trespass on the
Sea of Japan to squander their stock
of ammunition.
Capt. Ota also says that in the Japanese navy official posts are given
for personal consideration. A lieutenant commander may command a
i\ warship, but in the Japanese navy
officers of this rank occupy much
lower posts. Again, under the present system of organization, torpedo
stations transact the business of fish
torpedoes and submarine mines,
whereas \ in Englan| Ithe 'n|an^poj
ment of submarine mines is left to
the army. Seeing that the one is for
offensive and the other for defensive
purposes, the placing of the two under one and the same management ia
calculated to cause considerable inconvenience and friction. According

Fowler, en route from San Francisco
to New York, met wltb the flrst mishap of his pioneer aerial voyage here
at 10:30 o'clock this morning. After
a precarious quest tor a convenient
landing place, necessitated by a refractory engine and steering gear, his
biplane  collided    with    two    trees,
breaking both planes of the craft and
hurling lt to the ground with   such
force as to break the propellers   and |
slightly Injure the blrdman. As a result ot the mishap Fowler wlll be delayed here for at least two days before resuming his eastward Journey.
Wire Pulls Out
Before leaving Auburn this morning
Fowler had his first trouble with his
engine when a wire of the magneto
circuit pulled out. The wire was taped
by Fowler and his mechanicians, and
after a preliminary test was believed
to be in order again, but lt Is thought
that it was this slight defect which
caused the later trouble.
Leaving Auburn at 9:37 o'clock this
morning, Fowler rose to a height of
about 400 feet and followed the
Southern Paciflc tracks through the
rolling approaches to the foothills district. For almost forty miles he
sailed along without mishap, easily
distancing the special train and automobiles which had made the start
from Auburn at the same time.

As he came intto view in this sec-
One of tho arguments used against
the proposed trade agreement, which
ls the issue ln the present election
campaign, is that reciprocity in farm
products will lead to reciprocity in
manufactured articles, and that the
manufacturing industries of this country wlll be destroyed. Thla Is a peculiar argument in view of the contention of the Opposition that red
Its own merits. All that they ask
for themselves is the privilege of
selling what tbey produce where they
can do sb to the best advantage.
Why should so reasonable a request
be denied? tp* until the time that it
was decided to make reciprocity In
natural products a party. question no
one thought of denying it. apart from
a few special Interests that stand to
beneflt by tbe restriction's placed upon producers, such as the canners
and the packers, wlfose natural deslr>
ls to prevent the farmer getting all
he can for his produce ln order that
they may get lt for as little as possible. Up till quite recently both
parties were in favor of the proposal
to give the farmer what he is asking. Practically all the arguments
against the proposed agreement have
been answered ln advance by the
very people from whom they now are
What might naturally be expected
to be the result of refusing co reasonable a request? What else than that
the farmers of the country,    having
failed to secure relief by reciprocity
in natural products, will insist upon
securing relief in some other   way ?
Many  of the leading manufacturers
of the  country have already  recognized this danger and have not hesitated to utter a warning against it.
They  have  pointed  out  that  aa  a
matter of fair play the farmer la entitled to his turn; that the opportunity has come for giving the farmer
hla turn without any risk to any other claas ln the community, and that,
after all, the interests of the farmers
and the manufacturers are Identical
and that it would be very bad policy
and very bad business on the part of
the manufacturers to drive the farmers into a position of organised antagonism.    From this point of view
the very worst enemies of the manufacturers, as well as of the farmers,
are those who are seeking to block
the ratification of the proposed agreement.���Weekly Sentinel Review.

The process of reasoning seems to
be that the country will be so disgusted with reciprocity on a limited
scale that it will insist on more. Such
an argument is surely not intended ,
to appeal to reasoning people.
As a matter of fact, the manufacturing    Industries  of  Canada    have
much more to fear from the defeat
of the present reciprocity agreement
than they have from Its adoption. The
farmers of this country are not asking anything unreasonable.   Thev are
not seeking any advantage for themselves at the expense of any other
class ln the community.   They claim
that tariff protection Is of no beneflt
to them and they    do not want to
have lt forced upon them for the purpose    of   furnishing   an   excuse   for
granting    protection   to  those    who
really want lt.   They are not opposed
to a  reasonable  measure of protection for Canadian lndustres, realizing
that some measure of protection may
be necessary to enable the Canadian
manufacturers to compete with their
neighbors;   but they  want protection
