Mr. Editor, <    i  Dear Sir, - ���������  I congratulate "J. L.'C." on the  more amenable spirit in which he  continues his correspondence, but  I   can scarcely bring myself to admire his ideas of consistency.   In  his   first   letter   he   quoted   R*iuo  fight for my confusion, as! an answer to my plea for clean sport.   In  his second Letter he hurled Reno at  my head as an instance'of "a clean  bi'.'l of fare���������a fair'fight" and in tho  same breath denounced it as a "reproach and a disgrace and an a-  bomination."   How' can' he logically reconcile such strangely divergent and contradictory views? He'  evidently wishes Reno' to serve- a3  all things to],all men.    It is a pity,  too, that he has entirely mistaken  cause and effect in his remarks u-  bout the fight pictures being forbidden in many of the States. Sur-  e'.y'he must know'that it :is. on-rac-.  ial -'and not immoral gr,Q.aiid3'that  the  pictures��������� are' forbidden.     His>.  confusion with cause* and', effect: re-''  mind-m'e������ of the man- who, ��������� ^bei.ng  found guilty iof-.;the'murder1;!of, his',,  father -raridA'mothef,V'.p^adejcl for'..  ��������� mercy on/lhe, ..ground -thatjhe^wfcs'^'  'an,', orphan !'"-^'ReligioussV.procesr.'  Mons in many parta'o'f^the British''  Empire are forbidden/not'because  .hey are immoral, but-because they-  ��������� ;tir up sectarian strife.' The John  ston-Jeffries fight pictures are for  jidderi, not .because they are immoral- but because they rriight ac-  jentuate - social bitterness. Probably '"J. L. C." . h.a3-'mistaken  :he cause because the calm, clear  voi^e of common-sense statesman-  hip'which dictated';'the action'has  now been.-drowned in the/howls of  the "unco'' guid arid the, rigid y  righteous." ,' But - itV profitoth rio-  ���������lihing'to carry "on'an' inter'minal dis  cussion'    about    the    right     and'  wrong's of boxing.     "J.   L.- C'is  opposed  to  it,  tooth  and  nail;  I  am equally as- strenuously in favor"  of   it.1 It  is   m'ere.'y  a   matter  of  honest   diversity   of   opinion. ...10  however wisln) tf osay 'that :had the  recant fight at Reno been fought  by white men, we would have heard  .'ittie or .nothing' of"- the1, present''  frenzied outcry of puritanical zealots.   These people have little know  ledge   of athletic   recreations  and  are   little  Ln  sympathy  with  the,  large rriass of their felllow creatures ���������  whom they are, anxious to convert  to the same sour, narrow, cheerless  view, of iife that contents themselves.   If J. L. C. is anxious to know  [what "a clean biLr'of fare." is, he  should endeavor to get to understand the constitution and tempera  hic-nt of tho average athlete or  sportsman. Or he may make a  study of the Queensbury rules; I  have ,no doubt the organizers of  the. recent Abbotsford fight will  only be too happy to oblige him  with  a   copy!.  I am,' not a particularly great  admirer of professional pugilism  J. believing that the infLuence upon  the amateur .of the man. who is  "out for the pieces" can be nothing but pernicious. But it will be  an iU day for Great Britain when  Grundyism becomes rampant and  the fighting instinct, has been lcg-  MOST HAPPILY WEDDED  On Saturday1 Jul,y 23 thef Upland  Fruit Ranch, Abbotsford, B.

PREMIER .LAURIER  Sir Wilfred Laurier has no peer  on. the political platform in Canada.   When  he  stands on  his  feet  before   an -audience - he  is 'master  alike of himself and of those-who  hear  him."Never  does he lose control either of his own<resouces of  .power- o ,.of  the  attention, of  his  audience  unless  it   is   from   sheer  physical fatigue.   And when he is  at his best, when his mind works  smoothly and his voice is frcah and  his  imagination    kindles    to    his  theme, then he takes rank with the  foremost  orator3 of  th  any land.  The ..qua'ities  that-give   distne-  .tion. to the Prime Minister's platform style are those very qualities  which ..will commend. attention and  praise during the present tour. Tlie  tf'iei'tiiesa .of ���������Sir' -Wilfred's   mind,  jtiis. frankness of manner, the deftness   with   which   he   senda   a willowy, phrase straight to its mark  the unfailing cheeriness     of     his  epirit, and1, beneath it all, that certain note of    definit e conviction  jwhich   to   those   who ^understand  gives determined purpose to what  he seems to say with airy lightneaa  age  in  U###*^ characteristics  of  Thirty-nine years ago on July 21  British   Columbia   became   a   province of the Dominion of Canada  thus being consummated one     ol  those most important events which  was  destined  to  cu'minace in  the  creation of an united British confederation extending from the Atlantic ;to the Pacific on the continent  of America.- The  relations  in the year. 1871 were  for a   time >  not    of    the . happeiest-   or-most  harmonious nature.   The province.-  charged the Dominion with slackness, in fulfilling the terms of the  bargain,   the : Dominion  seemed to  feel that the. province was inclined  to  be   a trifle  exacting, in  it3  in-.  terpretation  of  the   terms  of  the.  bond,   The  chief  bone- of contention  was 'the  construction ������of the.  first- national transcontinental rail  way, the conception of. which -was  to convert the union, in .'tha first  instance merely an abstraction, in.  to  ^something, .practical,, real   and  beneficial   to   the   respective   parties to the contract.. The revenue  of Canada;in the year 1871, and for  Borne  years  thereafter .was. small  and increased slowly.. The federal-  authorities  of that  day felt  that  the .burdeoi of  building, a railway,  from, the head of navigation on the  Great  Lakes   to   the tidal  waters  of the Pacific would bear heavily  upon the taxpayers���������more..heavily  than the .benefits to.be derived by.  either the.old Dominion in the east  or the new sister in the west .would,  justify.. There was. ne real concep  tion in those  days of the wealth  lying, .dormant in the. vast, prairies-  separating,-the, "bad lands" of the.  east; -fromvthevRocky Mountains  Nor did the value of those possesi-  become  established  until  long af-  tor- the..task jwhich the .government  of Canada hesitated to do had been  completed ;by a private .company,  and the .Canadian Pacific was. open  ed from Ocean to ocean.  For a number, of years after- the.  consummation of the. union the  people, of this .province .looked up-,  on their neighbors in old Canada  with anything but kindly or cordial feelings. But the old"-grudge  has passed away. The union which  in the first instance .was merely for  mal is now of the/ heart. It is - as  firmly established as any federation on this continent. It is doubt  ful if there exists any remnant of  the old element which resented being  called  Canadian.'   All ��������� Canadians are proud of the Dominion of  Canada, and regard the province of  .British Columbia as one of the chief  of the nine federal divisions. With-  .out  it  the  physical,  geographical  political   and  Imperial,  constitution of Canada would bej imperfect  incomplete.

He knows what  supeiior inducements are held o.ut  -on.this,-'side, of the-line. .Tie knows  what wheat takes the highest standard in the markets of the world  and where the land lies that grows  the- greatest average'   number'- of  bushels to the acre.   No Longer can  the cry of-^'frozen Canada" be cram  med down the neck of the intelligent   American.   Time   was ; but it  is.now a thing of the past. To-day  he keeps  posted.   Out of the some  200,000 .AmjerJcan'   fiarmicrs     who  have   settled   in   our- grefat  west  within less  than  three years,- we  read  of none  except  a.few  sluggards,, who .have   returned; "they,  still keep fcunibling>over one   anoth  er to avail themselves of our generous  homestead  offerings. On the  other  hand,  thousands   of  former  Canadians are leaving thaJ3tate3-to  take advantage of the exceptiona'  agricultural   inducements  and   thj  ideal      climatic      conditions      of  their birth'and.  '���������  - Americans wh& are invading che  commercial potency of Canada real  ize that they are entering a modern, progressive, aggressive, grow  ing country, whore educational advantages and re iglous liberty main  tain that are second to none in  the world.  A large proportion of Americans  who are settling ,in Canada are doing so mainly for the benefit of  their sons and daughters, who have  every opportunity to "make good"  in this young land where young  bibod is always .in demand. Turn  back a few years; history shows U3  that many Americans who camec  here as boys and girls and acquired vhicfmelstead privilegesAliave become loyai and patriotic Canadians,  ���������knowing, only one flag and one  .cV^try���������and who havje become  forceful factors in ,our pblitica1,  commercial, eth:'cal and literary  life.  It is only natural that Uncle Sam  dislikes to,'see the1 better element  'of his domain���������the productive element���������emigrate to another country. He does not like to see his  own country suffer to the aggrandisement of another. This is quite  natural-; but to dub Canada a  "frozen, barren waste" is silly, and  foolish in this age of enlightment  If Uncle. Sam-held out similar inducements and could deliver similar goods, is it reasonable) to suppose that Americans by the tens of  .thousands would notbe seeking the ���������  portals of Canada each year?  British .Columbia is receiving a  fair proportion of this exodus'from  the States.- Americans .are- rapid  ly settling.up and developing the  Nechaco, Bulkle'y and other fertile  valleys of the province.
