Number of Persons Killed and  Injured  Kirkby Stephen, Westmoreland, Fng., Sept. 2. Fifteen  persons are believed to have been  killed and thirty persons injured  in a collision of two sections of  the famous London-Scotland express curly today.  The two trains had left Carlisle for London at 1:35 and 1:47  this morning, respectively, and  the collision occurred fifty miles  south of that place on a high and  lonely moor.  The first section of the train  had stopped to get up steam for  a sharp upgrade when the second  section dashed into the rear,  pilingup the sleeping cars, which  were crowded with passengers.  Nine charred bodies were taken  from the wreck and it was believed that several others were  still among the debris. There  were about thirty injured passengers who were sent on special  trains to Leeds and Carlisle hospitals.  Corpse Found in Net  Prince Rupert, Sept! 4.-The  dead body of a man was discovered in a net by an Indian  fisherman named W. Stevens a  week or so ago.  Stevens,  who was  fishing on  the Naas for the Arrandale can-  |nery, was under the impression  that he had a heavy catch  of  [salmon, but on gaining a glimpse  jOf his ghastly catch, he immedi  Conference to be Held  on Empire Defense  London Selected as Meeting Place  London, Sept. 4. - Arrangements have been made to hold in  London instead of in Vancouver.  as originally suggested by the  Australian government, the proposed conference on the naval  defense of the Empire.

Ideal Weather for  Harvest  Largest and Best Ever Produced  Winnipeg, Sept. 4. Crop reports from all sides are pouring  in to the effect that the harvest,  whicii is described as the best in  piality and quantity ever produced in the West arid as being  absolutely safe, is about two  weeks earlier than last year and  that the weather up to the present has been generally ideal for  the harvest.  It is estimated that there are  now in the fields of the prairie  provinces or on the way there to  work in the harvest from Eastern   Canada,   the  cities of the  Twenty Killed and  100 Injured  New Haven Railroad Collision  Results in Awful Toll of Life  New Haven, Conn., Sept. 3.

It Rests' With Us  ' T am sure the sooner the government adopt a system of aiding the' settler, the sooner will  the children of these people and  their land become a rich heritage  for this province. So in God's  name let us stop this sacrifice of  waste- and disaster which is overtaking them."  The foregoing is the closing  paragraph of a stirring letter  appearing in a recent issue'of the  Prince Rupert Weekly Empire;  written by Mr. Edgar Ashton of  Lawn Hill Farmers Institute.  So the cry goes up from every  part of the province where the  unfortunate settler, isolated, because the surrounding land is in  the hands of speculators; without  roads, bridges, schools or any of  the things which go to make his  lot the easier and happier, is still  endeavoring to hew out a home  for himself and those dependent  on him. '������������������'*  furnish to the Dominion government, as trustees for the Indians,  sufficient additional lands as may  be adjudged to be necessary.  What the Provincial government will do in the event of a  reserve having been adjudged to  be too small and where it is  found-that all arable land adjacent to the reserve is held by  speculators who are not desirous  of selling except at exorbitant  figures, remain to be seen..  -Will the Provincial government  spend the people's money in buying back the land from these  speculators at twelve or fifteen  dollars per acre which was originally purchased" from the government at $2.50'per acre?  That such a case will arise is  no mere supposition, as we have  perfect knowledge of one such  instance.  Will not the Provinciafgovern-  ment hesitate before daring to  put the public money to such use?  Yet where is the alternative? *  Does it not look as though they  were threatened with a hoist  from their own petard?  o     o     o     o     o  What Business Men."Think  On August 12th last, a number  .of trade organizations of Montreal, including, the Board of  Trade, Chamber of Commerce  and the Manufacturers Association, presented to the late Harbor  Commissioners of Montreal���������  Messrs G. W. Stephens, C. CV  Ballantyne and L. E. Geoffrion,  three superb silver punch bowls  which had been subscribed for  by two hundred of Montreal's  leading business men. These  were inscribed as being presented in recognition of the invaluable work done for Montreal by  the late Harbor Commission.  Messrs Stephens, [Ballantyne  and Geoffrion were, compelled to  resign from the Harbor Commission soon after the Borden government carriS into power. The  pressure 'which -compelled them  to resign was frankly political  and they were practically dismissed as "soon as the Borden  government could choose their  successors. The recent incident  gives the answer of the business  community to the carnival of  dismissals organized under the  Borden-Rogers-Pelletier regime.  Dominion: "We are sure that  Canada means to play an honorable part in the naval defense of  the Empire of which she is so  powerful and integral a part.  However, when she decides to  share in that defense, whether  it be by direct contribution or by  the formation of local navies,  England will be satisfied.'���������'  In other words, the British  people do hot believe that one-  half or two-thirds of Canada is  disloyal or that a Canadian navy  would mean separation from the  mother country. With either a  contribution or a Canadian navy,  Great Britain would be satisfied.  o ������������������: o    o    o    o  "The new Liberal party <in  British Columbia is as nearly the  realization of democracy as is  possible among so cosmopolitan  a people. We want no clique or  coterie of-men dictating the policy of the Liberal party in British  Columbia. This was abundantly  exhibited at "the last provincial  convention where the voice of  everyone���������even of the crank���������  was heard, and were the deliberations resulted in the utmost harmony. If the Liberal party is to  succeed -in this province���������as it  soon must succeed���������itwill be, because it is developing a recognition of the rights, of the common  people as* arrayed against those  of the plutocrat, the. speculator  and the grafter."���������W.

C.  GEORGE E. TROREY  Managing Director  The'hews that the French military-authorities -are training  eagles to fight aeroplanes by attacking the pilots proves that  truth really is stranger than .fiction.  So it seems the" real mission of  Sir Richard to London is to borrow money. Let's see, how  many millions did the finance  minister say he had lying in the  bank in the course of his last  financial statement.  The people of the province, in  their anxiety to encourage the  building of railroads' have neglected to give sufficient attention  to the internal consolidation of  the province, which can only be  brought about by a wise administration of the natural resources,  by a policy directed towards the  settlement of the lands, in short,  a policy designed 'to give the  province a self-sustaining population.  This can never be brought  about by the land policy of the  present administration, which is  responsible for the better part  of the agricultural land of the  province passing into the hands  of speculators, to the absolute  exclusion of the settler.  o     o     o     o     o  Like the foolish virgins the  provincial government will soon  be compelled to face the results of  their recklessness and extravagance.  Under the joint agreement between the Provincial and Dominion governments in regard to the  settlement of Indian reserves,  an outline of which recently appeared in the columns of the  "Courier," the Provincial government agrees, in the event of  the Commission finding any reserve to be too small for the  reasonable requirements of the  Indians   domiciled   thereon,   to  Britain Will Be Satisfied  Sir Gilbert Parker, the distinguished Canadian novelist,  who represents Gravesend in the  British House of Commons, is at  present visiting his native country.
