The "Province" Contend* tho People
Havelieen Wilfully Deceived Heicaril-
ln,2 the «'on-ill ncllon of the Uriind
Trunk Put'llla Itiail way.
In its issue of Saturday last the
Vancouver Province, one of the leading Liberal papers in the west, makes
the following remarkable statement:
"Since a time shortly prior to the
federal elections, the people of British
Columbia have been indulging themselves in the pleasing belief that work
on the Pacific section of the Grand
Trunk Pacific railway was lobe begun
without delay. Assurances of this were
conveyed to them from several authoritative sources and unceasingly delivered through the medium of candidates for parliament and their plat
form lieutenants. Hon. Raymond Pre
fonlaine, the minister of marine and
fisheries! when in the province over
two months ago, stated in the most
iininistakeable terms that construction
in British Columbia would begin sim
ultaneously, or practically so, witl
construction iu the east; and Hon.
Senator Templeman, at a Victoria
meeting, produced and read a letter
from Charles M. Hays which clinched
all these confident statements and left
no further room for doubt.
•it was largely on the strength of
these assurances thai llritish Columbia gave such a decided, such an unanimous, support to the Liberal government. The opponents of the administration attempted to make capital out of tho fact that a clause had
not been inserted in the contract with
ths company ma'dug simultaneous
construction in this province one of
the binding terms, and thev were an?
dbubtodly, by this menus, influencing
the electorate who were disposed to
irangin that the government had neglected our interests. The assurances
given by Mr. Prefontaine personally,
eight renewals are lieing asked for in
Uie whole district, two being at New
Denver, two at Silverton,and one each
at Three Forks, Rosebery, Arlington
basin, and Lemon creek. Quite a
change from the days that have been.

be an important factor in the production of zinc ores, says the Mining Efts-
porter of Denver, Col. Investigations

resources of the Slocan country. Al-
iv;iiiv it seems possible for ziuc ores lo

Seriously considering taking hold of a
property which will almost exclusively
be worked for its ziuc values.

GOOD REASONS
FOR AU HE SAYS
Dodd's Kidnoy Pills Cure W.
N. Baskin's Pains.
JAVA'S DEATH PLANT.
Well-Known Norwood Contractor Always Has a Good Word for Dodd's
Kidney Pills.
Norwood, Out., Nov, 21.—(-Spe-
iul.)—Mr. W, N. Buskin, tho well
known lumberman nnd railroad contractor, here, is one of those who
never fall to say a good word for
Dodd's Kidney Pills. Mr, Daskin
gives the reason why as follows:
"For two years I was laid up with
Lumbago and Kidney Disease. At
times I would become very weak and
would liave to give up work. I did
work on the C. P. R. and the Parry
Sound B. !{., nnd people all know
how sick I wus.
"Heading of wonderful cures by
Hodd's Kidney l'ills led mo to try
•(them, and I can say I have not had
any pains since I used them. It just
look threo boxes to cure me completely."
Lumbago is ono of the results of
Kidney Disease. Cure your Kidneys
with Dodd's Kidney l'ills and you
will cure Lumbago.
BY THEIR DEEDS.
A tattered boRgnr ln the afreet
Sang always some old  eronlni hymn,
And bold to those whom he might meet
Ills hat with  rugged,  greasy  brim.
Two men—two mighty men—eame by—
Two honored leaders of  the town;
Came,  too,  a dame of repute high—
Each passed tha beggar with a frows.
But still the beggar aang away.
With awkward music In each word;
And thru the balance of that day
The throe that chanting echo heard.
They heard, and held the fading strains
As memories of things that bless,
And added to their other gains
The golden one of kindliness.
Now, by some careless prank of fate,
These four met on thc Way of DeatlaV
And Journeyed to the Joyous Gate
Where but the perfect entereth.
The warder halted them, and told
How all who entered must be knows
By goodly deeds—hy deeds of gold —
By helpful actions all their own.
The honored men explained that they
Had given of their earthly wealtb
To help their fellows on the way
To  knowledge,   peaecfulness  and  btaltk.
The woman told of visits made,
The suffering and  poor to  greet-
All tiree told how the world had laid
Its laureled tributes at their feet
"Ton msy go In." the warder smiled,
"Although your fame we did not kuow,
A cup of water to a child
Is more than all the passing show."
The beggar turned to tnke his Way
With humbled mien anil drooping head.
The warder called to him to stay,
"Come ln!    We've heard you  sing!" bt

POLITE BULLDOG.
■ It Grow* Only on the Sterile Soil of
the Volcanic Regions.
Java, tbe land of the famous and
mtJSh exacgerated Death valley, has
many wonderful curiosities, th*? prin-
I ctpal  one  being  the kail  mujah,  or
death plant.    It grows only on  the
sterile soils of the volcanic regions of
Java and the adjoining Islands and ls

THE TREE OF IMAGES.
Manner la Which lli*   Old Fighting Breed

The modern bulldog ia grossly libeled by his own appearance. Uia
bloodshot eyes, flattened nose, deep
chest and formidable tusks give him
the npiieurunce of ferocity, and his
naturally sweet disposition is overlooked save by the low who know
and love him.
Tuke, for example, the 80 forbidding unimuls in the 18th annual
championship show of tho London
Uulldog Society, wliich opened recently at tho Crystal Palace, London.
For all their ill-looks, they allowed
themselves to be pulled about and
treated disrespect fully by everyone
who passed.
"Champion "Broadloa Squire," for
example, caiue down from Manchester
In a railway carriage full of children. The little ones poked their fin-
ners in his ayes, put their hands in
his mouth, pulled his tail and took
unheard of liberties. The champion
did not like it, but was too much of
a gentleman to protest.
Thero was an old gentleman at Sydenham who moved about disconsolately among the exhibits seeking for
something that was not thero.
"There's not a lighter among
them," he said. "Not one of them
would 6tand a moment's rhance

At one great fight two dogs, 'Joo'
and 'Duke,' fought for threo and a

"There were somo cruel 'dodges' ln

Legend   of   a   Peculiar   Plant   That
Grows In Tibet.
There is a legend abpst a tree of
Tibet, called the "tree 'of 10,000 images," which reads like this:
Far away ln the dreary land of Am*
bo, in Tibet, is a green valley in which,
in a Tartar tent, was born a wonderful boy named Tsong Knba. From Ins
birth he bad a long white beard and
flowing hair and could speak perfectly
his native tongue.
His manners were majestic, and bis
words *«*ere full of wisdom. Wben he
was three years old he resolved to cut
off bis hair and live a solitary life. So
his mother shaved his head and threw
his long, flowing locks upon the ground
outside their tent door. From his hair
sprang tbe wonderful tree.
Tsong Kaba lived many years, did
countless good deeds and at last died.
But the tree which had grown up from
his bair lived, and they called it "the
tree of 10,000 images." This was long
before the Christian era, but it is the
testimony of the French missionaries
that the tree lives yet. The leaves are
always green. The wood is of a reddish tint and has an aroma as of cinnamon.
The bark of tbe tree is marked with
well known symbols in the Tibetan
language. Alphabetic characters also
appear in green on every leaf, some
darker, some lighter than the leaf itself. The branches of the tree are described as being spread out like plumes
of feathers crowning a trunk only eight
feet high, but of great girth.
Two French missionaries who saw
tbe tree were fully convinced that tht
marks upon it were of natural growth.
He Still Agreed.
Lord Justice Homer was a chancery
Judge In England for nine years before
be was raised to the appeal court. Decisive In manner and no waster of
words, his simple "I agree" has become
famous. Lord Justice IUgby was giving au elaborate decision one day and
happened to pause In thut effective way
he had to give emphasis to a point In
an Instant came Iu Sir Robert Homer's
sonorous "I agree," to the visible discomfiture of Sir John Higby. "But I
hadn't finished my observations," he
said and thereupon continued his judgment, somewhat more exhaustively. At
length he finished. "I still agree," said
Lord Justice Homer. And the appeal
court rung with unaccustomed laughter.

The Seren Rests In Diseaso.
Meutlon is made by Professor Hilton
ln his lectures on "Hest and Pain" of the
seven varieties of the former obtainable
iu the treatment of disease—namely,
mental rest, bodily rest, a combination of
those two, as in thnt most perfect state
of rest called sleep; organic rest, as evidenced in the avoidance of exertion in
cardiac disease, of talking in affections
of the respiratory tract, und in limiting,
so far as possible, the act of deglutition in affections of the ulimentary
tract by the substitution of eiiemata;
local rest, as secured by change in the
position of body or limb, the use of
pillows, cushions, etc.; dietetic rest, by
avoiding the too frequent use of food
and drink; lustly, medicinal rest, ln
the relief of spasm by inhalations and
the not too frequent administration of
medicine to the prejudice of nutrients
or stimulants. Professor Hilton lays
it down as a rule that by a consideration of the manner in which these principles of rest may be best applied in
each special cuse of disease are relief
and comfort to be brought to the sufferer and diseased action arrested.—London Lancet.
Discomforts In Venice.
Venice is uot n desirable place of

CATS AND DOGS.
The   Enmitr   That   Exists   BetTvaea
Them and the Reason of It.
Why does thc dog hate the cat? Scientists have been investigating the enmity between these nnlmnls, and they
believe that the instinctive hatred
wliich certain beasts feel for each other
ls due to Inheritance from ancient
times when the animals met in a wild
state and preyed on each other.
The enmity between cats and dogs
seems to be due more to hatred on the
part of the dog than of the cat The
latter animal apparently hates dogs
because dogs chase her, while the dog
hates the cat because she Is a cat.
A cat will feed at a place where a
dog has been without betraying nny
signs of anger, but a dog generally becomes excited and wild if he scents
the trail of n cat anywhere near his
food or sleeping place.
Now tbis enmity is not to be explained by anything that happens between .dogs nnd cats in domesticity or
anything thnt ever happened between
them as long ago as human history
goes. In nil these thousands of years
dogs and cats have been kept as pets,
and of all animals they are the two
which should be the most friendly.
But the reverse ls the case. One naturalist, Dr. Zell, seeks it in the fact
that the common cat not only looks
like, but smells like, tbe great cats of
prey. And of those cats of prey there
is one, much like a domestic cat ln
many ways, which hunts dogs by preference. This big cat ls the leopard.
The domestic cat and her larger relative, the wildcat, have never harmed
the race of dogs, but their great speckled cousin is and always has been the
most ferocious of dog murderers, and
the cat must pay for It.
Authorities agree that there ls no
animal that the leopard would rather
eat tban the dog. As a result there are
many villages ln the districts in wblcb
leopards are plentiful where nobody
can keep a dog. The great cats wlll
not hesitate to break into tbe houses
to seize their'favorite dish.
But, says the doubter, the modern
dog certainly could not have known
leopards In many thousands of years.
He has been a domestic pet in regions
where there have been no leopards
since man first appeared.
That ls true, says Dr. Zell. But he
points to tbe fact that dogs have a
habit of turning around several times
before they lie down. This, he says, ls
due to the fact that when they were
in a wild state they had to do this to
press down leaves and twigs In order
to prepare a bed for themselves, and as
they have not overcome this habit in all
their years of domesticity it is quite
natural that they should still inherit
tierce hatred of any creature tbat
smells like a leopard.
Dogs and cats are not the only animals that still show inherited fear or
hatred of other beasts which they have
never seen themselves. Thus the rhinoceros is frantically in fear of anything white, and naturalists say that
this Is because OMce upon a timo some
big white animal hunted him. But that
must have been long ago, for there are
n* big white animals now where the
rhinoceros dwells.
Chickens that have never seen a fox
wlll cackle and run In fear if they
come across the place where the animal has passed or where his carcass
has been drugged. If n fox has been
anywhere near a cat's drinking dish
the eat wlll not approach lt
A Spoiled Dinner.
Mme. de Muzarin certainly was eccentric and unfortunate, according to
tho memoirs of Marquise de Crequy.
She never gave a reception without
some accident happening. When she
had n supper party the kitchen wus
Certain to catch on fire. She gave a
grand fete champeter nnd in order to
make It more realistic sent for a (lock
of real sheep, n heifer and u shepherd's
dog. The Hock was to pass behind a
glass screen. An unruly buck smashed
the glass, and the entire flock, wilh the
heifer and dog, rushed In upon the audience and scattered It.   Some of the
sheep got access to the supper table,
and so there were no refreshments to
speak of.

Carton. XCnya of Crab..
Certain species of crabs cover themselves with seaweed in order to deceive their foes. One crab was seen by
the naturalist Elsig ln 1878 to pluck
off zoopbyles, those plantlike nnimal
colonies which grow on shells nijd
stones, and to flx them on the spines
and hairs of its shell. A still deeper
romance of defensive tactics Is to be
found In the case of certain hermit
crabs. They live In the enstoft shells
of whelks nnd crawl about, house on
back. One claw Is bigger thnn the other, and this is an ndaptlve feature, for
when the With retires into Its bouse
the bigger claw is tucked across the
mouth of the shell to bar the way
against a possible Intruder. More curious still is the habit of one species
which tolls along with u sea anemone
fixed to his shell, like Sindbad carrying
the Old Man of the Sea. Great care Is
taken of this uneiuone. lt ls fed by
the crab, and If the latter has to seek
a new shell by reuson of his growth
he tenderly shifts his tenant off the old
abode and places him ou the new one.
Dean  Hole'.  Wit.
On one occasion Dean Hole, the well
known English clergyman, with Mrs.
Hole, landed nt Hover, much exhausted, after n rough crossing of the English channel. While waiting for the
train the dean pored over the railway
regulations. "Ah," he said, addressing
the station inspector, "It's one consolation after such a crossing nud this
tiresome wnlt that we go back nt half
price." "I don't understand, sir," was
the official's reply. "There is no special
reduction." "Oh, yes, there is," said
the dean. "I've just been reading nil
your notices, nnd you state that you
take returned empties at much reduced
rate." Once when tlie dean was playing whist for threepenny points he appeared to be very well provided with
threepenny bits. "Ah," his opponent
remarked, "have you the offertory with
you?" "Whnt, sir," the dean answered,
"do you recognize your miserable contributions?"
The  mutant  Star*.
Speaking roughly, we have reason,
from the data so far available, to believe that the stars of the Milky Way
are situated nt a distance between
100,000,000 and 200,000,000 times the
distance from the sun. At distances
less than this It seems likely that the
stars are distributed through space
with some approach to uniformity. We
mny state ns n general conclusion indicated by several methods of making
the estimate that nearly all the stars
which we can see with our telescopes
are contained within n sphere not likely to lie much more than '_'U0,< 100,000
times the distance of the sun.
Granting thnt all the stars we can
see are contained within this limit,
may tbere not be any number Of stars
without the limit which nre invisible
only because tliey are too far nway to
be seen? Simon Newcomb in Harper's

education with a term at Toronto
College. Deciding to learn the printing business, ho was apprenticed to
John White & Son, of the Exeter
Times. After completing his term
ho accepted the forenianship of tho
Mitchell Uecorder, holding the position for nearly three yeurs, when he-
went to Toronto and obtained employment in the well-known job office ol the Jlonetary Times. Later he
accepted a position in the oflleo of
McLean Bros., the well-known trade
journalists. In 1898 he was ollored
the forenianship of the Clinton Now
Ki'a, one of the best papers in western Ontario, nnd held the position
till tho fall of 1901, when he came
west to Alberta, and after a few
months of prospecting, decided to locate at Wetaskiwin, and established
the Times. As may he imagined from
the success of his venture, Mr. l-'rench
has never hud occasion to regret the
call that bade him come west.
To any one who realizes and appreciates the rapid strides that all
parts of the West has made within
the past few years, it seems certain
that, the measure of success that has
attended Mr. French in his newspaper venture in thc past will bo surpassed by its future growth. The
district served by the Calgary &
Edmonton line is one of the best in
the West, nnd Wetaskiwin is evidently destined to be one of the most
important centres along the line. Thc
Tiiiies, under its present management,
is amply able to keep pace with its
future growth. Already it is regarded as among the most influent inl papers ot the Territories. It is ably
edited and carefully printed. Its advertising patronage is large, and ns
a news medium it is one of the very
best in Western Canada. The present
position of the Times is the liest possible proof of the progressiveness and
ability of its proprietor, who is generally recognized as among the most
efficient of the newspaper men of the
West.

cattle thieves and officers near Death,
Nov., says a despatch from Salt
Lake City, Utah. Sheriff Clark und
the deputy of Elko county caught
.lames McKelvy and Charles Winslow
in the act of i skinning a steer of the
Graham brand. When called upon to
surrender they dropped behind the
carcass of tho animal thad began firing at tho officers. The latter sought
shelter, and for twenty minutes a
duel continued. Finally McKelvy
sprang to his foet and fired. Tho
shot was returned and McKelvy drop-
pod dead. A few minutes later Winslow surrendered and was found to bo
mortally wounded.

An Exceptionally Severe Case in Which a Helpless
Sufferer Was  Restored by
Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills.
Gravel or stone ln bladder is
about the most painful ailment that
ever afflicted mankind. It is the
result of deranged kidneys, the uric
acid forming into hard substances,
which lodge in the kidney and bladder. The horrible disease is prevented and cured by Dr. Chase's
Kidney-Diver Pills.
Mr. Daniel Drown, English River,

suffered from urinary troubles, partaking ot the naturo of stone In the
bladder or gravel, and the pain
which I endured can scarcely be, described. I was unable to do any
work, and frocfuently discharged
blood. Though I spent hundreds ot
dollars in doctors' bills I received
no relief, and at last decided that I
would never be able to Work again.
-"While In this condition I wu advised to try Dr. Chase's Kidney-

faith in thom or in anything alsa I
decided to give them a fair trial.
After using one box I felt a decided

Close to 41,000 immigrants came to
Canada in the first four months of the
present fiscal year, there being an increase of 2088 in the European contingent over last year. American settlers decreased 2901 in tha same time.
Canada is to have a naval militia,
formed along the lines of its land organization, a permanent force of bOO
men is to be maintained, with 8000
volunteers on the Atlautic and Pacific
coasts and along the great lakes.
Training vessels will bs secured, and
the entire system will be run as an

The provincial elections in Quebec
last Thursday resulted in thc return
of five Conservatives, making six all
told in the legislature. Those six
meu deserve the thanks of the party
for keeping alive and maintaining the
traditions and principles of their political faith, notwithstanding that their
leaders wished to obliterate all traces
thereof.
Just why individual members, or
any organized section, of a political
party find it necessary to practice
duplicity, bribery, or general corrup
tion iu order to win an election is hard
to understand; and why it is those
guilty of thc many recurring crimes
against public morals are allowed to
go unpunished, is a still harder nut to
crack. Yet, in the interest of a wholesome national spirit, it is high time a
determined stand were takon by the
people of Canada to put a speedy end
to the political debauchery practiced
in ihe country. Ontario politics have
for years been fraught with much that
has been evil and dishonest, and the
dominion elections just ended have
furnished many disgraceful incidents,
where trickery has been resorted to in
order to win a so-called "popular"
Verdict. In Montreal a well-organized
gang of corruptionista was apprehended; in West Hastings and Frontenftc
bogus ba'int boxes were introduced,
ending i.. warrants being issued for
the arrest of two parliamentary candidates and several prominent citizens;
in Manitoba hundreds of voters found
themselves disfranchised through no
fault of their own, and some of the
■east guilty culprits havo found lodgment in gaol. Evidences of other corrupt acts are forthcoming elsewhere,
to the lasting shame and disgrace of
the ( 'ininioii. Stringent measures
should 1x3 taken to suppress these
wrongdoing.-: -which seem only to
grow moro flagrant and daring with
each succeeding election and the
guilty should not be allowed to go
unpunished, no matter how prominent
a positiou thoso really responsible occupy. A penitentiary term, with absolute disfranchisement, would be none
too severe a punishment for the culprits. Be he Liberal or bo he Conservative, rich or poor, high or low
severe punishment should follow the
turuptionist.

in these days of progress and 'competition
no man in business
should neglect an opportunity to keep his
goods before the people.
Modern usages proclaim advertising the
one road to success;
neglect of it invariably
ends in disaster. A
merchant's standing
in a community may
be judged from the advertisement he enrries
in a local paper. To
sell goods a man must
advertise. AM live
