C." many millien-  iums larther than any previous researches. / ' -  JVlr. Hill-Tout .who is well known  as a; resident'of Vancouver in the  old  days  and���������in  a   wider   field-  as the  author'-of  the  first of the  American volumes in ."The Native-  Races' of the Emprie" series, when  questioned by.'a   representative of  this paper in. Vancouver yesterday,  had a numbqr.^ofv" interesting':par-  Hculars to give regarding-.the- discovery. ,    "Yes','  he   admitted, ."if  the  discovery  proves���������as  I   think  i". will���������to be genuine it will have a  very important bearing archaologr'  ically.    We  find  on ��������� the  American  Continent,, as- in Europe, that  the  same general result has been reach  ed in our archeological studies. Afc  our investigations proceed the neolithic period) is seen? to extend farther and-farther into) the mists of  ,.������reh..sioric yrae until it      recedes  quite beyond our ken.   Taking.that  part of the American continent in  which my own labors have    been  carried on, and with whose archaeology I   am jnost familiar, thisdis.  co very of a   human skeleton in the  ancient clay jbilts  of       Kamloops  would seem to extend <th'e neolithic  .period in British Columbia.      back  many milloniums 'further than any  previous  researches   have   carried  us."  . "What   are   the  grounds,     upon  which you base an> assertion of so  much  archaeological importance?"  was a ��������� natural question.  "I   must reply  a [ little  technic-  skelton had been rolled by the ac  tion of water while it >stiU held tog-ether. The district in -which the  skeleton had been found\ is known  as the "dry belt," and the scarcity  of /water characteristic of this locality would thus account for the  remarkable��������� preservation 'of, the  bones, the dry clay acting ta8 a  hermetic cement coffin for them.!1  Mr.  Hill-Tout    added    that    lie  brought the  discovery before  the  notice, of the Institute, in the hope  that some-archaeologist with  expert knowledge of geological' sifa  tia, would be sufficiently Interested  to pay a   visit to Kamloops and en  deavor to fix with some degree of  definiteness the age" of the. clays.  The .skeleton remains would'be; sub1  jectedto expert examination,-with'  the .view of -determining,. whether  they possess; .any special, characteristics.,  "But  apart from .any .interest they may have; along these  iines',"vour informant      concluded,  "they are of especial interest " on  account of their age to those who,  like "myself, have made a   study of  prehistoric: remains in British  Columbia.   Our evidence of man's pres  ence in this part of the   cont;uent  prior to the discovery of this skeleton extends back at most Lo only  ���������5.000 years. Now,1-if our assumption  of the age ofi the;.;&keletbn be 'correct, the.ascertained period of pre-,  history .must  be pushed/Dack; '-'-at  least fifteen milleniums': farther!''

Meat  at retail was offered,7 hrthe usual  variety, and the only change in  price was a slight drop in pork  i5gga sold ,at 5Q tup 55 per dozen at  retail and 45 cents per dozen whole  sale. Butter remained -firm at' 40  cents per pound. Plenty of fish  was on eale at regular, prices and  the only addition to. variety .was  herfin gwfiicn boicT readily at four  pounds; for 25 cents, OnlyJ cut carnations were on sale at the florist1 stand. They'sold readily at  75 cents per -dozen.  In the poultry 'section there was  still a noticeable shortage in comparison to the demand- for birds.  Those who brought in' crates of  birds were besieged-with buyers,  the chief, object apparently being to  get in on the ground floor and snap  up as much as possible. There was  no. advance in the,price of 22c per  pound live weight. - A few \ducks  were offered which were.' sold at  from a dollar to a dollar and a  quarter each, r  No geeBe or turkeys were offered  Some poultry suitable for breeding  .purposes, noticeably .whiiite: ileg-.  horns and. brown - leghorns, Vere  sold at one-dollar each!., ."   j  BACHELOR'S BALL   .y. '   .  PLEA FOR A  ally, I am afreaid,'! Mr Hill-Tout  replied, smiling. "The skull belong  ing to the skeleton proclaims a cran  lai capacity and development equal  at least to any.of the known neo-^  lithic peoples of this region and approximates so closely to. the "dolichocephalic type of akuU. foundY in  the'older midden heaps of B. C. and  which we suppose to belong to a  long-headed people who dwelt  there before the advent of the prea  ent short-headed tribes, that it may  well be regarded as; the shull of a  man of the neolithic, period."  Asked as to the manner in which  the skeleton was brought to light  Mr. Hill-Tout said this was done by  the action, of a small stream, which  had cut a channel for itself in the  clays." The bones were seen to  beprotruding from; the face of this  channel about 12 feet down, from  the top" he explained. "They lay  in a disordered condition, apparently jumbled tpgether as if  ANOTHER CORONER'S :IN QUEST  An Austrian-Hungarian met his  death at Camp 2 on.

Cold weather failed to keep the  people away from the New Westminster market on Fridayl ast, although the attendannce was email  in the earlier hours. Offerings were  a trifle more numerous than on  other market days recently, and,  all in all, the imarket was better  than it has been for some time.

Shail Canada be for Canadians,* or shall.Canada-be,.for "the A,-  ?nerican, ,>.the -Britislh-born   or,  for  individuals with  big ideas  on'-Im-  perialistic  fancies   to  practice   11P7  on?, These are questions that must  appeal to. the. Canadian these days.  The thoughtful reader and thinker  cannot but see that Canada Is com  ing'''to. the   front   as., a .nation���������a  ..prize, worth, having; and ,also v, a  country .where the very brightest  prospucts -before   it.   He    cannot'  lielp  but see'that  Canada   is  ap-  . .pr.oachjng.-, that'stage ;of  develop-  ..  ment where it will either be'come  a   great nation of itself -or the tool'  of'some other country to experiment .upon.  ."-. The recent election has distinctly  told the  Americans that.   Canada  does not want to belong to the Un  ited States, preferring to" exist of.  itself-and' do business  at  the  old  stand but on.a   free bapis untrammelled.   This  election  creaults   appeal?. capable'of  another  interpretation���������that    .  of  Canadians having1 high 'Imperialistic ideas.   In* regard to the. latter'  we doubt very much jf there is a  ���������  Canadiia,n-born   citizen   o'f  Canada  to-day-who "wotdd'wish, to 'be-Im-  penalized, according to the ideas of  the Bonar. Law, Lord^Milner or any  other great- British' politician.  The  true,:usually,,,- a.!  man having a   free--untrammelled  ., spirit���������wanting free to carve  out his own destiny, according, to  ���������'his own ideas; and we 'belieye that  that isi the kinc\ of .government he'  '  wishes,.to.;be,,governed! under..-All  vCanadians, recognise "i.he protection  .that the. mother country gives-,   to  Ganadai and probably that is as far  as it goes.   That the true Canadian  born' is not wanting  in      loyalty  there are events in  the  pas': history of the country to uphold. The  Canadian sentiment-is-a   sensitive  one���������the same as the Canadian him  self���������very jealous of his own rights  We believe- the Canadian  w'ifll 'always 'resent  interferen'de      from  any source voutside  of Canada   in  dealing with Canadian affairs.   But  the question is dp we want to be  Imperialized?   What does it mean?  These are questions that we as: a  na!tion ((must   answer..  We all wish to see Canada -grow  in population with its* teeming millions of people and billions of dollars worth of trade; and-in-thismafc  ;. Jug we want to see .those who come  to settle in Canada, whether they  . be British-boriv    >Axnerican-born,  Swedish-born, French-born become  imbued with the true Canadian spirit with Canada,in ideas, as sensit-'  iveive and -sympathetic about out  Canada we want none of the problems of the Old  World  whether  they come from, Great Britain*,    or  Turkey.,, We want'Canada full of'  Canadianized..people :\vhether.Can-;  adian-bdrn people .or the adopted,  home of foreigners.   And if to; be'  ���������fmfc>eri|alizcd (means   th|at 'Canada1  has to 'do with.the British political  and moral problems, then we believe that Britain will, when the vital moment comes receive an\ ans-  ,wer, from Canadians as -effective as  did the Americans wvLth their) reciprocity   cry.   .,  It  seems  strange   however   that  the feeling should have 'got abroad  that Canada wants' to be .Imperialized.   That interpretation  was  indeed  far-fetched.   The   last   Dominion election was not won on strict  ly partyl ines.   It was won' on the'  Canadian 'sentiment  that, reciprocity was not what Canada  wanted  ���������to  put it 'stronger   or   probably  more bluntly, it' was]' vftm on,,.the  principle.that.reciprocity if ]rought  into ,practice,;as presented  at the  election would touch the individual  pocket of the Canadian.   Canadian  sentiment  regarding   the   dollarsd  and cents has always been, a   very  sensitive 'one.   This   went  a, little  further���������it meant the exploiting of  .of the country to our disadvantage  We think the-loyalty cry had very  little to do with the Conservatives  being- in- power.   So it seems very  strange, that English       statesmen,  should run away with the idea that  ���������Canada-wants to  be.: imperialized.  When Canadians  want      anything  trust them .they  will- seek  it, but  will never have  it  thrust      upon  them. - . .
