In the absence of Mayor Lee, Alder,
van Johnston waa elected chairman,
and P. W. Luce secretary of the
organization meeting of the Induatrial
Peace association, held last evening
at St. George's hail. The meeting
heard addresses from P. H. Scullin,
general manager and secretary, on
the subject and approved the personnel of tbe directorate already published, It being the Intention to hold a
further meeting in Vancouver to
organize a board for B. C.
The Objects.
Mr. Scullin explained at the outset
that the organization existed to promote peace ln labor relationships hetween employers and employees, and
to create a healthy sentiment for tho
seti^Tient of disputes at their Inception, by arbitration and conciliation.
In conciliation and voluntary arbitration each side preserved' not only
their self respect, but their respect
for the other party, because each waB
satisfied that the settlement had been
arrived at on the basis of fair play
for both. The association assured
the continuance of operations while
disputes were in negotiation, the employers did not get their orders
crippled, and the men continued to
go home on Saturdays with tho
week's wages, while the causes ot dissatisfaction found redress meanwhile.
By money remaining In circulation
the merchants of the towns escaped
that dislocation of trade Inevitable
to strikes and lock-outs. The motto
of the association wns that of Carlyle 's words "In the end there ls
nothing else but justice." it was too
often the case that the worktngman
in going Into a strike saw nothing
else but the personal point of view
he never stopped to consider his em
ployer. The question was to hlm:
Are we strong enough to force our
demands ?
No employers could operate without a profit, they must face that fact.
By raisins wages to an artificial level
labor sometimes, as ln San Francisco,
killed the very Industries upon which
they feronded for a livelihood. Much
of tbe dissatisfaction of tbe man roee
from a disinclination to consider what
his employer had to compete against.
It was their object aa an association
to represent the public, the third
party to every strike, and see both
aides hai a fair deal, and tn the Interests of the consumer and producer
hasten the settlement. It was the old
scripture maxim of a house divide!
against itself must. fall. Por himself
he might say that the experimental
work of the association was done. He
. had been engaged for eleven years in
it, had heen s. steady union man. and
afterwards a master employing union
labor, and had attended lnteinatl.nal
conventions with the idea of pushing
the scheme, which was for tbe benefit
of humanity. Me had receive.! the
ondorgation of innumerable unions,
public bodies, professional men, the
press, and eijnilar men and institutions which moitlu'xl public opinion.

lip opinion outride, knew what such

Remarkable progress is being made
ln the area arounl Burnaby lake. A
few weeks ago an announcement waa
made tbrough this paper that P. J.
Hart & Co., had sold a portion of district lot 84, which adjoins the lane,
for purposes of subdivision. The section so disposed of consisted of
eleven acres, of which divined into
acre blocks one was reserved for
water frontage to Deer lake, which
ls admirably suited for bathing and
rowing. This lot It was understood
would be at the disposal of the other
purchasers for recreative purposes.
Several of the blocka have been sold
off, and wlll be used for first class
residential property, a restriction he
ing put upon it for high class structures.
Meanwhile several fine residences
are In course of construction or about
to be built on adjacent property, on

Satisfied with some of its leaders be-'
cause   of    their    opposition to    the
referendum   policy   of  the   party.    A!

at  Sydney to  enable  some    of    the
branches to denounce Mr. Dolman, at-1
torney general In the McOowen ministry, and Mr. Beeby, aiinister of education and labor.
The conference passed a resolution
declaring that every member of tha

future. Such antagonism developed t )-
wards Mr. Holman, in particular, thnt
a strongly supported moUqa-to e*v��l\

Two meetings were held under
Liberal auspices at Otter and Murray's Corners, on tbe old Yale Road,
on Monday night. Mr. Oliver spoke
at both places. Tbe gathering at
Murray'a Corner*, which Included
quite a number of ladles, held under
ithe 'chairmanship of Albert Dean,
was particularly well attended, and
showed ln demonstrative fashion,
with cheering an I applause, their approval of the Liberal candidate and
policy. The assemblage In Otter ball,
presided over by D. W. Poppy, while
not so large, evidenced many hearty
proofs of theli friendly attitude in
welcoming Mr. Oliver to the platform.
The  Reciprocity  Pact.
In his presentation of the political
Issues Mr. Oliver directed particular
attention to the reciprocity pact and
exposed the fallacy of the supposition
that local farm Interests were threatened in any way. He showed that in
stead of being flooded with American
produce, as suggested by misrepresentation of the reciprocity scheme,
the market advantage in most lines
of farm products, was if anything on
the American side; that the prices
ranged about the same all through the
list and were less than local prlcea
only in a very few instances. He
further showed that local shortages,
ln nearly all classes of farm products
were supplied not from Washington
state, but from the Canadian prov-
'.K-er- ot Alberta and Saskatchewan
This applied to hav, oats, butter,
routry, eggs and other articles, all
of which could be laid down cheaper
frcm the provinces on the Canadian
side. In the case of eggs he demonstrated that local produce was not affected by Importations ns the farmers
here dealt In the "fresh" article
which was In a class by itself anl
commanded a price Irrespective of
competition with packed eggs shipped
In from outside tho district. In Illustrating how this trade worked itself oi.t. and to show that lt was not
subject absolutely to supplies
from any particular, aourc*. JTj�� OfiLr
ver remarked that lar*e qasptttle* o��
butt er from New Zealand entered Into'
the local markets laat winter, and
that the balance, above that which
was supplied from local sources-,
came from the prairie provinces and
eastern Canada. None of lt came
from Washlrnton. because It cou'd be
laid down cheaper from the placea
named. Taking lt generally he showed that the local market waa governed by Alberta produce.
An Eaay Proof.
Any   farmer,  he   urged,  m|eht   relieve his mind of any uneasiness on
the reciprocity question by reference
to the market quotations, transportation  charges, etc.. on  both  sides  of
the lines.    As one point In the argument New Westminster dealers would
inform any farmer   who   wanted   to
enquire that they bought as many as,
forty  cases  of eggs  per week   from
Eastern   Canada,   not   a   single   egg
coming  from  the  other  side  of  the
line.      As the duty on  this produc? ���
was  only  tbre<5  cents  por dozen,  It
was evident that the situation could!
not be materially affected by tbe reel-,
procitv- nact..    dimmed Up, Mr. Oliver's  iargument   was    this:      .That
local farmers would not be adversely ,
affected  by  reclpoclty  in any appreciable degree, and that any slight direct  loss  which  might,  result   would,
be  more than offset  by the general
advantage wliich would c me through
the stimulus which would be given
the province In the fishing and mining Industries afld ln various other
ways, all of which would react to the
advantage of tbe r/eople who looked
to the farm for their sustenance and
profit. He pointed out further that
they must ceiisider reciprocity, not
merely from the local standpoint, bdt
from the brand Canadian point ot
,- The Sal* of Hay.
As a matter of fact, Mr. OlUer suggested, lt was difficult for rational enquiry to see what all the opposition
fuss was about on this reciprocity
question. In cases the necessity ot
argument even was obviated by Iced
conditions. For example In the matter of hay, local farmers, taking lt as
a general prlncple, were buying and
not selling hay, and even If they
were, selling their Interests were not
threatened by reciprocity with the
United  States.    (Applaus?).
Ab for the plea that the railways
would be Injured through a diversion
of traffic to American lines, Mr. Oliver suggested that the railways were
quite capable of taking care of themselves. At the same time he commented upon the absurdity of this
contention, pointing out that theie
was nothing to prevent such a diversion, if economic reasons aros��
therefore, at the present time, the
case not being affected by reciprocity
at all. The fact that the Canadian
, Paciflc railway stock had advanced
| quite recently to a higher mark flian
it had ever before reached, Indicated
that the railways were not worrying
about the agreement. He challenged
, the opposition argument put forward
I by, Mr. McBride, that reciprocity
would result In takng the natural resources 0,111 of the country for manufacture In the United States. In view
of the fact that the natural resources
were under provincial care, and that
the present administration permitted
conditions which allowed Americans
to get hold ot air the Iron on Texada
Island, of which every ton was being
shipped to the United States, thla
��roimwt cUM��lta JiMOt ***i
fram \bm vrmatmr. k* a au
fact Mr. McBride was simply trying
to fool the people On the reciprocity
fsRue. In using this argument. The
contention that annexation would result from reciprocity he characterized
aa foolishness. Canada's trade with
tbe United States represented many
hundred millions at the present time,
and It was absurd to assume that attachment to the old country would be
affected. If it were further increased.
If trading wth the United States
meant the local Conservative government was assisting It. as they had
purchased thousands of dollars worth
of road making machinery there during the past year and had' built a
bridge, not far from where he was
speaking, out of timber purchased oa
the other side of the line. He spoke
disdainfully of the attempts to associate the idea of disloyalty with Sir
Wilfrid Laurier's name, in this connection pointing to Quebec, where Slr
Wilfrid was being attacked because
he was too much of an Imperialist.
* Applause Throughout.
Mr. Oliver was cheered to the echo
at the conclusion of his aidresses.
The prediction freely made through
this part of the country that his majority will he fully equal to his popularity. - -   -���      ---������r'

was held ln the campaign headiuar-
ters, Hardman hall, last night, and
many breezy and spirited speeches
were made by the leading Liberal
workers of the city; A tone of decided optimism as to the verdict of
th* people on the reciprocity question
was sounded throughout all the addresses. Many new phases of the
proposed legislation were brought out
ln the discussion.
After the speechmaklng had concluded,* the meeting resolved Itself
Into an organization committee, and
��� Suable work was done preliminary
co going Into tbe Campaign ih a
most thorough manner. A large committee was named to take charge of
the educational work In connection
with approaching the electorate, and
placing the arguments for and against
the reciprocity pact In Its relation to
the voters of this city and district.

,C. B. Deans, and his army of workmen wlll no over the city thorough')-

London, Eng.. Aug. 2ft.���Travellers
may still see on the coast of the English channel at Dover tbe ruins of a
Roman lighthouse that was built at
the time of the Roman conquest of
Britain. Another ancient lighthouse,
built less than a oentury after the
towei- at Dover, ls still serving its
original   purpose.
lt was partly rebuilt and some al
I orations were made in lt, but ln the
main it ls the same old structure thut
guided the Roman galleys as they
skirted the coasts of the Bay of Biscay, making their way to the Roman
port of Hrlgantlum. This ts the modern harbor of La Cortina and the
lighthouse is the most ancient thing
about It.
First   Century.
The Romans called St the Tower of
Hercules and the moderns have perpetuated the name. The exact date
of its erection Is not known, but Inscriptions and other evldtnce show
that lt was built in the time of Trajan between 98 and 117 A��� D.
When the Roman empire fell and
Rome lost the mastery of the seas
the light In this tower was extinguished. For many years none of the
old Roman lights lit up the sea eftpes
of the former empire. Most of the
light towers fell completely Into
ruins, but a fortunate chance saved
the  Tower of  Hercules.

but four walls of stone and every

London, Aug. 2ft.���Both ln France
and England petitions are pouring in
on thc government to place aviators
under greater official control. Home
Secretary Winston Churchill issued
an order at coronation time prohibiting aerial Mights over the proces-
'sions, but beyond that ��� nothing has
yet been done.
I At Brooklunds, south of l^ondon,
and Hendon, ln tbe northwest, the
aerodromes have been extremely busy
these laBt two months, especially In
the early mornings, with the resultj
tha* householders have been compelled to move to quieter neighborhoods to escape tht noise of the engines that wake them at dawn.
I Only the other day an aviator new
over the House of Commons and the
racket his motor made caused the d -
bate to be suspended for some minutes. It seems tbe most expert bird-
men are the worst offenders, for they
fly low and give non-flying people con
;iitant   shocks ^by   Itheir    disturbing
' noise. Maurice Farman, tho Franco-
British expert flyer, has done something to lessen the disturbance caused
by the Renault motor, but even now'
the result Is not silence because to
silence the engine means the loss of
power the aviator cannot affoid as
Besides these regulations the peti-
I tioners urge attention to the danger
of aviators studying and photographing coast defences and otherwise
complicating international relations.
So  many   licenses  are  being   issued
, Just now the practised blrdmen that
the legislative problem Is infinitely
more urgent than ever before.

Had Seen  Ons.
An English comedian told ol appear-1
ing before a swell London audience
at the house of a noble lord. The languor of his listeners made him feel
not too happy, and he was glad to get
through and retire to the dressing
room allotted him. When he was removing the grease paint a very young
peer who had strolled after him stood
jftatchfng the process. He told the
comedian in the most app 5ved drawl
that some oi his tayings had really
ibeen rather funny, "especially that
.one, you know, where your wife made
a pancake on a gridiron and the pancake slipped through and put the fire
!out. That made me laugh awfully,
'because I know what a gridiron is. 1

Stale  Bread.
It   is   generally   supposed   thnt   thai
stateness of bread arises from its becoming actually drier by the gradual
loss cf   water, but   this   is   not the
case.    Stale    bread    contains   almost!
exactly the same proportion of  water
as  new   bread   after   it has   becoma
completely cold.   The change is mere-'

r      PERFECT  HEROISM.     ���
Rare Courage of Dr. From Mueller In
His Tragic Death.
Heroism bas been defined aa "tbe
brilliant triumph of tbe soul over the
flesh"���that is to say. over fesr���fear
of suffering, of sickness, of Isolation
snd of death. An Instance of this
dazzling and glorious concentration of
courage is given lu Mr. Frederick Rowland Marvin's book, "Tbe Excursions
of a Book Lover."
Dr. Franz Mueller of Vienna, who
fell a victim to the bubonic plague
wben tbat disease was flrst under bacteriological Investigation ln that city
in 1807, contracted tbe malady from
bacilli ln culture tubes. Wben he became certain that be was infected, be
Immediately locked himself ln an Isolated room and posted a message on a
window pane:
"I am suffering from tbe plague.
Please do not send n doctor to me, as1
ln uny event my end will come ln
four or five days."
At once a number of hla associates,
all ot tbem youug physicians, with
much to live for and with full knowledge of tbe chances to which they
would expose themselves, atepped forward aud not only offered their services, but In some cases begged to be
���ent to Dr. Mueller. Tbe patient refused to permit It snd died alone within tbe time predicted.
At tbe end be wrote a farewell letter to his parents and placed It against
tbe window so tt could be copied from
tbe outside end then burned the original wltb hls own bands, fearful that
It might be preserved and carry eat
this mysterious and deadly germ.

against Harry Laidlaw, one of the

catch-as-catch-can style, the best of
three falls to rule. Larsen, wbo wlll
make the Journey specially from
Seattle to this city for the big night,
Is a splendid specimen of an athlete
and although Chester has the advantage ln weight, the naturalized
American grappler can with hit
lengthy experience be counted upon
to make Mclntyre bring all hls best
holds and locks into use before be
obtains the mastery.

Is a fact that some birds, L'.ko the
albatross, need a breeze to rnnb'.o
them to sail throucli the air; but
there are others, such as the frigate,
Dr man-of-war bird, which can rise
in tlie calm and float all day without
i motion of their broad pin/ons.
T1k> wings of the frigate-bird have
nn expanse of ten to twelve feet, and
It can fly at any pace up to a hun- j

The albatross of the Southern Hemisphere has been known to follow a
sailinf,' ship for a fortnight at a time,
apparently never resting. Its wing
expanse is preater even than that ol
the condor, one bird that was shot off
the Cape of Good Hope measuring
seventeen and a half feet from wing-
tip to wing-tip. .
From these fiirures it might be
Mthered that the larger the wing
expanse of nny particular bird the
creator its powers ol flight.
' Yet here we strike another snag.
The powers of flight in various birds
are not by any means proportionate
to the bearing surface of their wings.
The stork, for instance, can fly
mngnificentlv. On its annual migration it rovers two to three thousand
miles, and will cross the Mediterranean with the greatest ease. Now,
the stork weighs epht times as much
as a pia?on, yet in proportion to its
weight has only half ns much wing

Montreal,   Aug.  29.���.Dr.    Adtroyd-
Osborne, II. U.. H. R. C. R.. London,!
England., also known to several yon-1
trealers  as  C.  A. Osborne, two per-1
sonalltles in one man, dealer In vel-l
vet   and   silks,   has  disappeared  and I
left little else behind him save mem-1
orles and unpaid bills.    Chief among:
tbe doctor's (?) methods of advertising or publicity gaining, was a circular which he was ln the habit of handing out to his more intimate friends,
descriptive of a dinner tendered 10
himself by the Canadian government
and at which it ls stated that he "wai
supported on hts right by the principal of the Medical Research Association of Li. S. A., and on his left by
Dr.   A.   D.   Blackader,  of   Montreal."
Whatever the gentleman wbo supported Osborne on his right at the
mythical dinner may have to say. Dr.
Blackader makes emphatic denial of
any acquaintance whatever with the
alleged Dr. Osborne. He states thac
he has no knowledge of blm, an J is
entirely unable to account for tho
use of his name In this manner.
Dr. or Mr. Osbrone, whichever- is
correct, bas also been making himself
agreeable to a young lady In this
city, and It ls currently rumored wa3
engaged to be married. Not only
that, but the wedding day was set and
a wedding breakfast ordered at ono
of tbe fashionable hotels in town.
What happened to the feast when the
bride-groom-to-be failed to put ln an
appearance Is not known. There ara
quite a few people tn Montreal who
would be glad to hear of Mr. Osborne's whereabouts at the present
Mr. Osborne frequently spoke to his
travellers and business acquaintances
of his wife and family, whom he
often had to leave for long periods
while be waa on the road, and whom
he had not seen for over a year.
Whether this part of hls supposed
family history is true or not ts unknown to the relatives of the youn?
