Serious Shortage cf    Hay    Feared���
Agriculturalists in Fraser Valley
Have Bad  Luck.
According to reports that have
reached the city there wlll be a scarcity of potatoes approaching a famine this year on account of a blight
that la devastating whole flelds of
the plants ln the Fraser Valley dis
trlct and In other parts of the pVo--
The situation Is one of the most
serious that has ever been faced by
the district farmers, a number Of j
.vhom have become alarmed and are
.inearthing their crops and sending
them to the various markets for feai
their plants will become affected' by
the disease. This accounts for tht
glut of potatoes on the local markel
last week, and the situation is said
to be the same In other market
���owns. 1
The blight, lt appears, affects flrst
the  vine of the  Infected  plant and
gradually     follows    Into   the   tuber,
making  the  spuds   useless  for  food
even for animals.
Reports that there will be scarcity
of hay this year on account of the
great destruction worked on the crop
by the unusual heavy rainfall this
month are also circulating through
the valley, and stock breeders and
:attle people are afraid that the situation will become critical.
So alarming an aspect has the hay
situation assumed to some or the
large keepers of dairy cows, who
mainly depend on hay as the staple
food for their stock, that they are
talking of selling out for the winter.
One farmer of the valley has already
-old 50 of his cows en bloc and others are preparing to follow suit.
That the situation Is unprecedent
ed in the history of the valley is the
opinion of one farmer, who expects
that prices for hay will be higher
this year than they have been for
I same time. This same man claims
[^nat the damage done the hay ha*
been greatly underestimated ln th(
newspaper reports.

to the majority of agriculturists. The
aarly prospects were that the crop*
'n all lines would be bumper ones
bit later a defect was found in the
maturing fruit crop, then came the
destructive rains and spoiled what
promised to be a record hay crop
and last of all comes the blight prevalent on the potato fields.
Rarely have local farmers had to
face so many adverse circumstances
at  one  time   and   they  have   every
easoii to feel discouraged.
Striking Article on Reasons
American Offenses Have
Been Passed Over.
Britain Would Starve, America Wsuld
Be  Embarrassed Only,  If War
London, Sept. 2.���Norman Angeli
(Ralph Norman Angell Lane), tht
author and newspaper correspondent
who has been the general manager ol
the Daily Mail in Paris since 1905
contributes to that paper a striking
article on the Panama canal law en
titled "Why not flght ?"
He starts out by suggesting hypo
thetically a series of offences committed by Germany against England
which he says would give an Anglo-
German war Infinitely greater justifl
cation than most cf the wars of liis
tory and would Indeed make war in
American Parallels.
These ofTences are intended as ey
act parallels of what the English re
card as American offences against
England in the post ten years and
whose logical method,cf settlement
would be by war.
Not Thinking of It.
"But," says Mr. Lane, "we have
not gone to war. We shall not go to
war. We are not even thinking ot
war." This, he argues, is not because blood ls thicker than water, for,
"when the Americans were really of
English blood, which they are not
now, .we went to war with them
twice, so it Is not for that reason
that we must submit to the affects of
the Americans. The reason is because war would be Ineffective.
"We could not Interpose* our will
by war. America is not only Impregnable, but is quite obviously impregnable. We could, it is true, destroy her navy; bombard her ports
blockade her coasts, but we should
thereby create a position far more
serious for ourselves than .for her.
She would be embarrassed; we would
starve." ��

Ing the location of the Sandhead
lightship with the Ottawa authorities.
A similar move was made several
months ago, but the quick action of
Mr. J. D. Taylor, M. P., acting on be
half of the shipping that uses the Fra
ser rlter, prevented the scheme from
being   culminated.
It Is understood the govercmen
will be asked to move the light-
ihip from the mouth of the river t
a point off Roberts Pank. lt is pre
sumed that the rew move is being
taken now that tha lightship is' at
present on the ways at Esquimalt being overhauled and otherwise fitted
for her position at her usual station.
That the removal of the ship from
the mouth of the river would be
fraught with much danger to tht
shipping using New Westminster as
& port is well known In this city, and
:t is thought that once this matter
?ets to the knowledge of influential
bodies In the city, steos will at once
be taken to ensure the replacing of
the lightship in its former position.

Mr. C. C. Worsfold, resident engineer for the Dominion, has submitted to the' public works departmeht,
plana presented by tbe C. P. R. for
a new double-track bridge across the
Pitt river to replace the single track
structure at present in Use. 'The
new bridge is in line wltb the policy
of the company to double track ita
Une between' Vancouver and Port
Hammond to cope with the ever
growing traffic between those two
It ls stated that the Western Canada Power company approached tbe < son
C. P. R. for the use of thejjew bridge'"
for the proposed electric pbwer line
between Vancouver SnA Mission City
The proposal, it Is stated, was turned down by the C. P. t>t, because It
was believed that the bridge world
be no more than, sufflc'ont. for tli%
needs iof the steam traffic.
The cost of the general traffic
hridge which tbe Western Canada

there was an open demonstration of

Others had nothing or practically
nothing to show for their day's out

the majority a three days' growth of j

Asked as to how the shooting was,

of red whiskers, "I only got thirteen
ducks and about twice that number
of anjpe,���but then there were so
many people out there that the poor

The plight of lhe High Scliool
cadets of Vancouver, who are report- I
ed to be stranded in Australia re-
fleets no credit upon those who Inl-1
tiated :ind carried into effect the pro-j
posal to take them abroad on an j
educative" tour of the world. Stimulated as the promoters no doub,
wore by tlie example of the Austral
ian cadets who visited Canada last
spring, tho scheme seems to have
>een undertaken without a full sense
-.1 the responsibility for such an enterprise by either the management or
the parents who permitted the boys
o go. Tl.e Initial blunder seems to
'iave been in accepting a promise
from the provincial government that
$r000 would be given to finance the
itinerary, a sum which, on actual
payment was cut down to $2000. H��d
the full amount been given which the
promoters allowed themselves to be
lieve would be granted there would
have been no iii?cd fot the present
��� iMipai.
There has rot been the sam" com-
letency exhibited in either planning
.r carrying o"t the enterprise as was
exhibited in tho excellent race set b)
the  Australian   cousins   who   toured
Canada and went round the world a
vear  ago.      These   up   till   the   time
they    reached   Victoria    had    netted
$1600 by giving entertainments at the
places   visited,  and   th'i   without   In
any way   trespassing   the   hospitality
of the cities entertaining them.
Ambitious   Vancouverities   have   of
late  been   doing  Beveral   odd   things,
whether fired   by the militant   spirit
of Col.  Sam   Hughes  or not.      They
purchased the Egeria    for    use as a;
training ship and are now appealing |
for money to ta!:e care   of the few j
cadets   who  have  VcYuite&od   for   &\
life  on  the  ocean  wave.    Vancouver I
is a big city with big    ideaB, but in
some  of  these  enterprises   4t   might |
not be a bad principle to follow the '
example of  the  more slow-going and
sedate   Capital    city.    Whether    the
cadets will have to be recalled after
completing   half    their    journey   remains to be seen.    It is not Improbable that the next time it is proposed
to take    a corps    of cadets    abroad
some  provision  will  be  made in  advance which will   anticipate   another
such humiliation.���Victoria Times.

Band affair in In store for the Terminal City, Such an ending is only to

it |<j only meet that Its term.nation
ahe uld ha farcical. The unfortunate
part ls thai an extremely unsavoury
impression wlll be made In our sis
ter Dominion of thingd Canadian.
S'tch enterprises should be undertaken solely under government control, and military or semi-military
bodies visiting other countries should
never be allowed to do ho under the
direction of private individuals. No
doubt "Captain" Davy, and those citl-
ssena of Vancouver, responsible for
the present holocaust, acted with the
permission of the Dominion authorities and with the best of intentions,
' bat the fact Is self-evident that tlie
boys were allowed to start out on
their tour witli their finances Improperly organized, Incomplete, and quite
probably, Imperfectly controlled.
Should the contingent have to be
helped back with their tails between
their legs, at seems altogether likely,
discredit will rest, not only on Its
commander and the organizers of the
tour, but on the whole of Canada, as
the boys arc bound to be accepted as
representative of the Dominion by our
brothers lu Australia, and the fact ol
their self-appointment may not be
generally known. That being the
cane, the Dominion Government
should take the matter up somewhat
strenuously with Mr. Davy and his
flnanc'al backers, the gentlemen of
half measures, upon the return of tht
company to Canadian soil.
As  regards  the   money  that  ls  to
bri>R tliem  back,  1  should   think  it
should be the affair of the boys' par

In hls speech here this afternoon,
the duke dwelt earnestly upon the
basic problem of Canada's future,
arising out of the recollections of the
east snd west. Said his Royal Highness:
"Your worship and gentlemen:
Please accept my heartfelt thanks, as
well as those of the Duchess and my
daughter, for your address of welcome.
"Fort William and the city which
competes ln friendly rivalry with it.
occupy, as you have Indicated ln the
last sentence of your address, a position of vital importance in the autonomy of the Dominion, for you link
together the east and west.
Not only are the east and west
separated geographically by the
sparsely settled area which lies along
the north of Lake Superior, but there
Is, for the present, a difference of In-
terests on esch side of you. To the
east the manufacturing interests predominate, while to the west the agricultural Interests are paramount.
"The reconciliation of such interests has been one of tbe problems or
statesmen in everey country in tbe
world, bttt In Canada the problem is
even more difficult of solution than
elsewhere on account of the geogra-
ohica! separation cf these interests.
It Is true that the situation ls from
day to day Improving with the hum
ol manufacturers to the east of 113
and of agriculture to the west, but
in the meantime, it Is the duty of
every one to contribute in every possible way in the consolidation of the
Dominion and lo make, if necessary
cenceetvons to tl.at end.

Slaci Taking Na-Dra-Co Dyspepsia Tablets"
Mrs. J. Merkhtiger, Waterloo, Ont.,
enthusiastically recommends Na-Dru-Co
Dyspepsia Tablets. Her experience with
tbem, as she outlines it, explains wby.
"I was greatly troubled with my
stomach", she writes. "I bad taken so i
much medicine that I might say to take
any more would only be making it
worse. My stomach just felt raw. I
read of Na-Dru-Co Dyspepsia Tablets,
and a lady friend told me they were
very easy to tuke, so I thought I would
give tkem a trial and re.ally they worked
wonders. Anyone having anything
wrong witli hit stomach siiould give
Na-Dru Co Dyspepsia Tablets a trial,
they will do the rest. My stomach is
��� fine now and I can eat any food."
One of tbe many gpoA features of
Na-Dra-Co Dyspepsia Tablets is that
tliey are so pleasant and easy, to take.
The relief they give from heartburn,
flatulence, biliousness and dyspepsia is
prompt and permanent, Try one after
etfb meal���they'll .make you feel like
a new person.

u Your cooking is improving.'*
"Well perhaps it is, and I hope to, but really, Mr*,
Housewife, I think our new Gurney-Oxford it partly
responsible for the success I have had lately. I was
never able to cook roasts and fowl so well on cur old
stove, and as for bread and biscuits, I used to tremble
when I went to take them from the oven���they were
'so often soggy and heavy. Now they'are always
light and beautifully brown, and, if I do say it myself,
something to be proud of."
"That's true, Mary, my husband has said almost the
same thing.   I'm awfully glad you approve of my
choice of a Gurney-Oxford.    He approves because of
the saving in coal since we got it, also because of the
better meals he is getting."

We do not.infer for one moment
that there is not a .great deal in American life and Influepoa which with

that the scope'pT'tlip municipal commission might ife'textended to Include
the leading countries of the old
world, with possibly a look in at the
way in which Australian, New Zealand, South African, Indian cities
govern themselves, where British institutions, handed down from the
days of the Witenagemot, and transplanted to land$ uncontaminated by
proximity to a great country where
municipal and civic misgovernment Ie
all too common, have struck root
firmly, are flourishing, are efficient
and are sufficing.
The    movement:-stewards   government by commission or by board of
control   had   its    beginning    in    the
United ' States,   where   some   means
wa3  necessary  to  provide a substitute   for    the    c!as3   of  "governors"
.   who  in  the British, Isles  seek  office
from a sense of du^y, for the social
standing attained  thereby,  from  the
sense  of  "noblesse   oblige."      They
-are jinpaid, .aaiaijuley are above, suspicion, are men.pf means and standing.    The  British  Isles   is   fortunate
in  the    possession  cf   thouBand3  ' of
dians well educated? To answer this
question  we have  to consider   their I
requirements.   For it is absurd to ex-1
pect a pioneer in a new country to I
waste his time over the classics. His
work, in the first place, Is to wrest j
from the bounties of nature, not to j
deal In the grandiose thoughts of phi-1
losophy, or the   intricate   puzzles   of i
historical research. But having stated
this much, it is necessary to add a
qualification.    Education is necessary
for two purposes, even to the worker
In the fields,   ln the first place ignorance is the cause of loss and deterioration.   It ls being found even in
bountiful    Canada that owing to    a
want of a system of rotation of crops
the soil is being Impoverished.    The
farmer must not only be industrious, I
he must understand the farmer's bus-!
iness and   must   be  educated   up   to
the necessary level.
Beyond this a;aln, education is
necessary, for having learned how to
manipulate his own business most
profitably, the individual' has to decide how b��8t to manage the nation's
affairs. The better his education is.
the wider will be hla outlook, the
more comprehensive his mental
grasp of national and imperial questions. In this age of quick transport
Interchange of IdeaB Is necessary
Decisions have to be made concerning
more than our own immediate affa'rs
and a right understanding can only
be fostered by means of education.
Moreover, an age of machinery and
mechanical devices calls mcrfe and

Brawn is requisite in opening up new

From all accounts, probably no.
There are many illiterate children
throughout the oonntry. and the standard of education is not high among
meny others. It is. cf. course, very
difficult to control the education of
sparsely populated districts and of a
stream of immigration. But this is a
nuestion ' which requires more

The drawing of the municipalities together for concerted action to Improve the river courses would lead
to very desirable results, and should

Editor Westminster Daily News:        ���
Dear Sir���In your report of the
proceedings before the Municipal
Commission in this' morning's paper,
I find the following:
"The futility of the bylaw system,'
said Mr. Cclsworth, "was exemplified
by the sudden end of the Wooden
Fraser Bridge By-law, passed by the
| people here. That bridge, if it had
been built, would not have lasted
more than three or four years at the
most. The then City Clerk refused
to sign the bonds, knowing the fultil-
'ty of the move, and a sudden death
"as put to the by-law."
"If this ridiculous statement, having apparently the imprimatur cf a
man so well known a3 Mr. Cotswcith
's allowedtogouncontradicted.it may
be accepted by some as authentic
history. A proposal to build a wood
en bridge acros3 the Fraser was
made some twenty edd years ago
and even got as far as a vote In the
council, but failed to pass that body.
No such by-law was ever submitted
or voted upon; nor. had it been passed by the people, could the city
Clerk's veto have stopped it.

deep down I tto the, rpots of our corporate belngS Perchance by seeking

In vhat does the greatness rf a nation consist? Is it in the greatness
of its individual members? No. Are
Individual Frenchmen, Englishmen,
Americans or Canadians great? No.
Are the French, gnglish, American
and Canadian nations great? Yes. If
then individuals can not. with ner
haps one or two exceptions, lay claim
to the title, how is ft that a nation as
a whole can do so?,
Fcr a nation is preat. quite apart
Trom its numerical]Btrength and the
reason Is not far to seek. Individual
faults exist In the iminority of a nation, but because [the majority are
free from those faults, the nation
must be considered! free from it too.
For example, art any individuals
given to excesslvd drinking? Yes.
Are nations as a ilhole given to excessive drinking? { No. Why? Because, though a certain percentage of
them are unfortunately given to ex-
ceaBivo drinking, bo mnch the greater
part of the nation is free from the
vice that If one is asked to express
In one word the answer to the question, "Are the members of such and
���such a nation drunkards?" lt can
only be "N&." For thiB reason it is
possible Intyhe cage of a large collection of people*.to deny the existence
nl viceB. It is the sum total arrived
at In this way that constitutes the
greatness of a nation.
J'rom    this   standpoint   are  Cana-
b'lstible refuse is simple ard even
crude, but lt helps to avert the necessity of polluting water or creating
dangerous areas on land but inven
tion has not gone farther in this regard than the devising ot simple incinerators that are merely gigantic
The need of today is a system that
will carry every city's sewage to the
fire instead of to the water. Every
household is now helping to pollute
the water ad.lfic.-yt t~ tbe olty. Water
is the greatest purifer available, but
fire is a still more effective purifier.
A fortune awaits the inventor who
will make it as readily available as
water. The possibilities of electric
transmission are being exploited, so
far as light, heat, and power are
concerned. Inventors should turn
their attention toward this new servant of Man so as to exploit its capacity for the chemical decomposition or incineration of city refuse. It
does net seem impossible to substitute fire for water, and to avert all
danger of pollution through the
growth of urban municipalities. Here
is an opening for an Edison. Invention seems to advance In cycles, and
eatablished methods, though defee
tive. are often left for years undis
turbed. Perhaps the next big ad
vance will be the substitution of fire
for water In the purifying of city ref
use and sewage.- -Toronto Globe.

River Improvement League tliat In
tervlened members from the Ontario
Government on the matter of a com
mission to investigate conditions
along the Grand River, tho conserva
tion of water and prevention of damage from spring floods, is leading
in a good movement. The general
question of river control in Ontario
will be brought into the prominence
it should have only hy such genuine
public activity on the part of those
directly affected. It is quite true, as
Sir James Whitney said, that the
difficulties from which the Grand
River municipalities would escape
apply with equal force and ln similar measure to many other parts of
Ontario. The scheme of the deputation is as large as the province, lt
Is manifestly patent that any Investigation as to river overflows, the
compilation of data regarding conservation and other necessary
concerning the larger rivers would
be work of considerable magnitude.
The labor Involved would be quite
comparable to that of the Commission of Conservation engineers In the
preparation of the report on Canadian water-powers.

large rivers along their main courses
In the hands of commissions seems
essentially wound and good, If municipal  co-operation can    be    secured.

Elaine, Sept. 2.���In the seventh Inning, with the score one to nothing
against them, the bases full and no
men out, Manager Jones, of the
Blaise baseball team, won tho game
on Sunday from the Westminsters,
when ,he cleared the sacks with a
pretty two-base hit. It was the only
mistake Horn made during the game,
when he gave "Jonesy" a. ball over
the plate. Horn pitched gilt edged
ball, and with two exceptions was
given great support. Marmont on
first base and Hudson on the third
station were out of form. To cap
the climax, Marmont went to sleep
between second and third In the
ninth innings with two men down
*nd forgot to bring in the tally which
wouid have tied up the game. The
\V��'ntminster'B came across with one
tally in the eighth, and Marmont
Bhould have scored right behind Silver iu the ninth had he been awake.

Ls*t year, when the Conservative*

Horden, then plain Robert Laird Borden, took Martin Burrell out tn the
Ottawa golf links and initiated him
into the mysteries nf tho ancient ami
roval tame, or whatever it may be
that the golfites call it. Rut it make*
no difference as to what tlie name
may be. The fact remains that when
Mr. Burrell had heen given a trial

turned to Mr. Borden and said: "Wait
until we get Into power, and (lien
I'll show you how to play iro.f.   '
That was months before Mr. Burrell, rusticating on his fruit farm, was

But no sooner had Mr. Burrell heen

in October last thsn he made up his

He could noti.play golf in wiqtef,
though ho became S member of the
Ottawa Qoll Club Just as soon as he

Coimcil. and he tried his 'prentice
hand for a while even while the frost
was reddening up the pumpkin. But
if he could not play golf he determined to do something else which would
distinguish him ss a member of the
Rideau Cluh, and he had not been a
member thereof mors than three
weeks before he won the amateur billiard championship of the club, snd
so he remains to this dsy, despite

there are several hundred islands. Tbe

1 Uue day some thirty years ago a
couple of fishermen setting their nets
jfor mackerel saw a ship bearing a flag
itbey did not recognize cast anchor near
one uf (be smaller islands. Presently
B boat wns lowered over tbe side and
pulled lo the shore. Tbere were three
liwn in the bunt, two pulling the oars

Bll three went Into a wood growing
near the shore, where they remained
only a few minute*. Tben two ot, them

had finished setting their nel stopped
at the island nnd looked mImuii till
they cnme upon a man silting on lbe
ground, leaning up against u tree. Reside hlm were n bottle ot water and
some ship's biscuit. He seemed lo be
Bhont rtfty years of age, his hnir being partly gray. It wns evident that

When Lisa told her father that Mine.
i Burundi was Intimate with the family of lienorul SchoiolT she noticed a
i changed expression cauieover his fnce.
: But lie snid nothing and she weut on
talking about her lovely visitor. Mer
father appeared desirous to learn all
nbout what had pusscd between the
two women, but being himself a dose
mouthed man. lie spoke no more than
wns necessary. So long as she was
willing lo talk he was rendy to listen.
I After that Mme Hurovlcb cume of-
ten to the shop, always buying flowers
nnd always paying more than the price
asked for them line day when she
cnme Lisa had gone out tor nomethlng
nnd on her return found the lady In
the living rooms back of the shop.
She told l.isn thnt she preferred to make
herself conifortnble while she waited.
When Lisa mentioned .this to ber father he was displeased and told Lisa
not to go out any more without locking
the shop door.
Mme.   Hurovlcb spoke often of the
family of Cenerni Scholoff. to wbum
* she seemed   much  attached.     Indeed.
i she   sometimes   told   Lisa   when   she
j bought flowers thnt they were Intended
1 for Mme. Scholoff or some other mem-
be'- of the family Lisa told all these
things to her father, who seemed much
Interested In the matter, fhough he
never commented on it. But one day-
he surprised l.isn hy proposing that she
take a handsome bunch of flowers to
I Mme Scholoff. T.lsn wns delighted at
the Idea since It would enable her to
| show   Indirectly   her   appreciation   of
j Mme Hurovlch's kindness. She would
say   nothing  to  her  friend   about  tlie
I mutter, fenrtng thnt she would noi per

Maa  wished  to put this scheme in

her to wnlt rind he would secure some
��� choice flowers that were very rare nt
l thut season. So Lisa wnlted. and one
' dny   her  father  brought   her  an  enor
I moils bouquet, which he suggested he

j lug      Lisa   chipped   her   bands   in   de

1 position Just  before  Lisa started to go
to  the  house of the  general  and  told
her that if Mme   SWiolnfT was not at
