'Sidelights  on   Married Life"
Proves    Good   Subject
for Lecture.
Large Audience   Pleased with   Mr.
Conn's Handling of Question—
, Valuable Hints.
There was an unusually large gathering
at the Court House on Friday evening
10 hear the usual fortnightly lecture by
Rev. J. ThurburnConn. The subject
dealt with was "Sidelights on Married
Life" and was ably handled by the lecturer, showing that he, although a single
man, could give valuable pointers to the
married men and women on the manifold duties devolving upon them in their
earthly pilgrimage".
In his introduction he showed marriage was a holy institution, and ■ hew
woman was not the slave but the helo-
ruate of man and wherever this grand
rule was practiced the life of the community were all the purer. There was
little truth, declared the lecturer, in the
theory that we were living in a hard,
prosaic age, that romance has no place
in our century, and that the rush and the
fjver of life has lefc but little time or inclination for the old-time giacdof loving,
wooeing and wedding. The study of
human nature would soon prove that the
world is very much as it was, Eden is
still possible to those who are fit for it.
The ideal home the idealhusband and
the ideal wife were all interestingly described by the rev. gentleman. The ideal
home, he pointed out, was something
It was made   up
creature. He must be able"to make the
home of which he is the head as near the
perfect state as may be on this mundane
sphere. He .should, be manly, he should
shield his wife from the rude blasts of
the world. He should not expect impossibilities, but remember his wife is
human. He will be a home keeping husband. When.he is called to leave' her
she will'have no need of apprehension.
Comradship ought to be the relationship
.be.twixt hnsbimd and wife, standing
shoulder to shoulder, and above all keeping.their inner sanctuary sacred from the
world. The hc.me ought to be for both
husband and wife a veritable sanctuary
where they can be at pesjee.
Several illustrations were used to show
the sidelights of married life and all were
^s instructive as they were amusing, and
the lecture was thoroughly. enjoyed by

WIFEBEATING.
eral instances of wifebeating have
Deefa reported near Princeton, but so far
the officers of the law and the magistrates, apparently, have not been able to
make a conviction. That c wife should
be bruised, eyeblackened£and;scratched
Uy a human hyena and go unpunished in
a.supposedly civilized community is be-
yspnd belief. Yet, it is so, as some are
prepared to testify. Wifebeating is punishable witfi from twenty to sixty lashes
and imprisonment and in some parts of
Canada offeirdVrs are publicly'horsewbip-
pied. There can be no justification for
wifebeating or brutal treatment of any
of the w:eaker sex and the man who sympathizes with a wifebeater is a.coward
also and deserving of the boot or the
lash. The Star has not yet in any mat

"The action of the British Columbia
Legislature in increasing the tax on coal
and cojke is being received with concern
by the mining interests and the business
men of the upper country. Both the direct and the indirect effects of this legislation are so far reaching that it was with
serious misgiving as to the wisdom of
this policy that the news of the introduction of the coal tax amendment act was
learned by the mining fraternity of the
upper country, according to the Free
Press of Fernie.
It is not only that the practical   doubling of the tax will change  the economies
of coal mining but that the precedent   of
increasing the coal and coke tax   is   entirely vicious in principle   when   viewed
through the eyes of the possible investor
in B. C. mining properties.
■ The colleries at  present   in   operation
must expect to spend enormous sums annually in the development of their mines
and in improving   their   plants   if   they
would keep pace with the  possibilities of
the west.    On  the  development   of   the
coal mines hangs, to a very large extent,
the fate of metalliferous mining.    Investors will be slow to hazard   more   money
in coal mining   enterprises   if   they feel
that the Legislature is governed  in their
taxation policy by the  rule''all  the   industry will stand." The present is a most
inopportune time t*> place   further   difficulties in  the way of  an   already much
troubled industry.
The smelters of West Kootenay and the
Boundary figure coke cost as one of the
principal items in smelting. Under present conditions the smelting industry is
languishing. The profits are eaten up by
wage and fuel expenses. The increase
in the tax on coke will not have a tendency to ameliorate this condition.
Who will pay the increased cost of production? It is a generally accepted maxim
that the consumer pays for all. It will
mean that the metalliferous mines already burdened by a two. per cent.tax on
their output must shoulder another bnrd
en in the incfea'sed cost of smelting. The
attitude of Victoria may well make the
investor pause.
There-are two generally recognized
principles of indirect taxation as determining the source of revenve. One is that
all should   pay for general   necessaries.
who use luxuiies
The other is that those
can afford to pay.
Coke is not a general necessity. It is
not a luxury. It is an individual; necessity, a necessity of a .single struggling
industry as yet in its infancy. The revenue goes into the general coffers of the
state. It must be contributed - by the in .
dividual   industry. The   injustice   is
obvious..

SUNDAY OBSERVANCE.
In the Court House last  Sunday evening, Rev. Mr. Conn preached to a larger
audience than usual   from   the  text Ex.
xx., 8, 9, 10:     ''Remember  the  Sabbath
day, to keep it holy.    Six days shalt thou
labor and   do   all' thy work:    But   the
seventh day is the Sabbath of   the  Lord
thy God:    In it thou shalt  not   do   any
work, thou, nor thy son, nor   H13' daughter, thy man-servant,  nor  thy   maid-servant, nor  thy  cattle,   nor   thy   stranger
that is within  thy gates."    He said   that
God's commands   were   issued   directly
through Moses to the children   of Israel
and through   them   they   were   handed
down to Christians of  all ages   and   nations.     The Israelites   were   a   peculiar
people, chosen of God, so were the  Sabbath observing Christians of today.    God
saw the absdlute necessity of a sacred rest
day for spiritual and ' physical   recuperation. > Christian   nations   supplemented
God's command by having a statue  en-  .
forcing Sabbath observance.   If a  man
cannot earn a living by six days labor he
cannot by   working seven, for   the   best
medical authorities declare that continuous labor is 'very injurious to health, and
the best thought of today denounce it as
demoralizing for the  individual   or   the
nation or   community that tolerates   it..
The sermon was much appreciated.
The Ray, J. Thurburu-Conn leaves on
Monday next for Kamloops where he
goes to attend a meeting of the Presbytery. . The question of Princeton and
Hedley being advanced to augmentation.,
giving them the right to call their own
pastor, will come up for settlement.
Before returning to Princeton Mr. Conn
will pay a brief visit to the coast and wilt
likely preach in Vancouver on Sunday,.

and Japan, as allies, might drive us
from the sea, but the British would
inevitably sacrifice Canada, for
their foolishness." The Butte paper
is unnecessarily alarming itself
without good cause. Great Britain
has no evil intentions on Uncle
Sam's navy. One can't help thinking from all accounts that the Japanese navy alone would be more
than a match for the ships that float

POLITICAL BOMB EXPLODED.
(Coucluded from page 2.)
Dunsmuir refused his assent to the measure, that the Lieu}.-Governor had been
appointed by the Liberal Government
here, and was another illustration of the
hostility of the local party to any effort
made to restrict Oriental immigration.
But even if the Lieut.-Governor did give
his assent to the measure, and it was
vetoed on the advice of the Government
here, he could always say to the people
of British Columbia that here was another illustration of the hostility of the
Government here towards any effort
made to restrict Oriental immigration in
British Columbia.    Clever, isn't it?
"But let us look for one brief moment
at the position taken by his leader, the
Hon. Richard McBride. Mr. Bowser introduces his bill in the Legislature on
the 2nd of April, 1907. It received its
second reading in the Legislature on the
lath of April, 1907. On April 16, 1907,
Mr. McBride was in the city of Ottawa,
' en route to England, to place the grievances of the province of British Columbia, in connection with "be'.ter terms,"
at the "foot of the throne." On April
16th, the same day, he had an interview
with Ii. W. Scott, secretary of State, and
a^ked for credentials, which were given
him by the Secretary of State. Incidentally Mr. Scott asked him if the bill introduced by Mr. Bowser, who was not
then his Attorney-General, but a private
11 ember of the House, was likely to become a law. Mr. McBride's reply was
'no; the Lieut.-Governor will not give
his assent to it.' This was such a marvelous statement hy the Premier of the Province in reference to legislation which
had not yet passed its final stage in the
House, that ihe Secretary of State wired
the Lieut.-Governor asking him if the
statement of the Hon. Mr. McBride were
true. He reDlied that the statement was
quite true, and he did not intend to give
his assent to the hill, and he was writing
fully explaining his position. This all
took place on the 17th of April. The bill
was finally passed in the House on ihe
22nd day of April, and on the 25th of
April the Legislature was prorogued and
Mr. Dun..miiir reserved his assent to the
bill.
'Now, sir, Mr. McBride is busy repudiating any responsibility for the action of
ihe Lieut.-Governor. He takes the position in the Local House, according to
newspapsr reports, that Mr. Dunsmuir is
tne agent of the Dominion Government
and that his Government can't be held
responsible for any of his actions. But I
wish to ask if he knew nothing about the
intention of the Lieut.-Governor, if he
<lnew nothing regarding what he intended to do, how could he inform Secretary
of State Scott as to the position the
Lieut.-Governor intended to take, seven
days before the Lieutenant-Governor
took action? So you see that while the
Liberal party are receiviug a great deal
of blame from Conservatives of British j
Columbia for their action iu connection |
with this matter, the leaders of the Conservative parly in British Columbia were
guilty of menacity and trickery in connection with legislation which they them-
selves introduced. I am not here to defend the action of Lieut.-Governor Dunsmuir, but I am bound to sav that there is
a marked difference between his cour.e
and that of his two most important advisors. I have no hesitation in saying
here, and now so far as hisiefusal to give
his assent to the Bowser Natal   Aci   was
concerned, that if he is to blame- at all
his blame is not to De compared with
that which ought to be accorded Messrs.
McBride and Bowser. I do not believe
that Mr. Dunsmuir signed this contract
of his own accord without somebody ad
vising him, and if the truth were known
I think it would be found out that about
that time there was a brilliant and modern Machiavelli of the W. J. Bowser
stripe al his elbow."
Mr. Ross, continuing, pointed out that
since the King investigation the Dominion Government passed an Order iu-
Council absolutely prohibiting Japanese
immigration from the Hawaiian Islands,
that under arrangements made by Hon.
Mr. Lemieux in Tapan, no contract labor
could leave there without the consent of
the Dominion Government, and consequently that no Japanese could be
brought under Gotoh contracts, and
therefore Mr. Bowser no longer had any
incentive to protect Gotoh interests by
introducing a nugatory Natal Act in the
Legislature.
"To endanger the diplomatic settlement made with Japan, to still further
keep up the political turmoil, now that
the question was satisfactorily settled,"
said Mr. Ross, "he introduces a properly
drafted Natal Act into the Legislature.
"In view of the facts which he had
given he trusted that the members of the
Legislature would refuse to be buncoed
by W. J, Bawser, and that they would so
act as to forever make it impossible for
him to cuntinue the agitation against a
sound and wise diplomatic settlement of
an exceedingly dangerous question."

himself had drawn up and which had
been entered tnto by the C.P.R.) to the

British Columbia that under this agreement the Grand Trunk Pacific is going
to bring in 50,000 Japs.

for cold blooded mendacity. The ques

fession that a lawyer should use information of his client that could come to him
in no other way for the purpose which I
have mentioned.
"Let us trace briefly the results of the
coutracts of which W. J. Bowser was the
author and finisher. In in inteaesting

which is published on page 11 of his report, it is demonstrated that outside of

I wish that I might talk wilh  all sick I
ones about the actual cause  of Stomach,
Heart aud Kidney ailments.   To explain
in person how weak stomach nerves lead
to stomach weakness, I   am   sure  would
interest all.    And  it  is   the   same  with
weak heart   or weak   kidneys.    This   is
why my  prescription—Dr.  Shoop's   Restorative—so promptly  reaches  ailments
of the stomach, heart and kidneys.    It is
wrong to drug the stomach or   stimulate
the heart or kidneys.    These weak inside
nerves simply need more  strength.    Mv
Restorative is the only prescription made
expressly for these nerves.    Next to seeing you personally, will be to   mail   you
free, mv new booklet entitled, "What To
Do."    I will also send samples of my Restorative as well.    Write for the book today.    It   will   surely interest   you.    Address Dr. Shoop, Box 8, Racine, Wis.
If you have catarrh, rid yourself of this
reDulsive disease. Ask Dr. Shoop, of
Racine. Wis , to mail }-ou free,atrial box
of this Dr. Shoop's Catarrh Remedy. A
simple, single test, will surely tell you a
catarrh truth well worth your knowing.
