Alexander Dawson, met his death  in  Rawhide Mine on Wednesday  morning- shortly before two  o'clock. Dawson was mucker boss  and had gone up into Chute No. 3  which was partly blocked up, to  place the charge to remove an  obstructing rock. He was caught  between the block and the rock  and death followed almost immediately. Dr. J. D. MacLcan, physician of the Dominion Copper  Co., who own the mine, was called but-nothihg could be done. It  took an hour to get his body-free.  This was done by cutting away  the bumping block with an axe.  Deceased had been employed in  the mine on the work of which he  was in charge, at the time of his  death for 7 or S months. - He was  considered to ,be ' thoroughly  competent for the position. , He  had been a regular and careful  workman, but as he could save  time by going up into the chute,  had done so previously and had  been warned that in doing so he  took all the chances.   .'  .Dawson lived .in a cabin near  the mine with two other men. He  was a native of Aberde.eu,Scot-  land, andwas 22 years of age.  .-The ;,evidence'_.at. the inquest  held on Wednesday afternoon at  2 o'clock before Coroner Black  tells the st^xof^theifaial night.  '"Peter Motich who was working  under Dawson at the time of the  accident when sworn said:"Deceased was my boss. The chute  was blocked. Muck was hung up  in the chute. Mucker boss got  three sticks of powder and started  to go into the chute to put' the  powder to the big rock. Pie was  putting the powder in on top of  the big rock when the muck start-  ted to slide down and caught him  pinning him between the block  and the big rock. His back "was  against the block and the' rock  was pressed against his neck. He  struggled a little to get free but  did'nt cry out. I called the other  people who-were about 300 feet  away to come. I was alone "with  liim^aFtheTtime: I .-.never.' gp~up  into the chute, I have no business  there. Mucker boss goes up. The  powder was not fired, he had the  primer in his hand, the other two  sticks fell down.  "The chute had been blocked  about five minutes. I saw the  mucker boss go up; the dirt was  not falling when ke went up; the  rock was about 0 feet up in the  chute."  William Sampson, shift-boss,  was called to the chute where  deceased was immediatelv after  the accident. His evidence was  to tlie effect that he had given  the deceased careful instructions  about the placing of his men and  also said that he had notified,de-  ceased not to go,into the chute**.  He had warned him within the  last month.  "I told him he could not expect  any thanks from anyone if he was  injured. I caught him twice and  warned him. The last time I  warned him I related my own  experience when I was caught in  the chute on the same level last  winter. My instructions under a  former foreman were to discharge  any man going into the chute. It  is not necessary for men to go  .there7'  George Johns, foreman of the  mine, said that the regular method  in removing the rocks hung up in  the chute was to tie powder tojthe  end of the stick and push, ft up  against the rock in the chute.    It  Dr. C. J. Pagan, Provincial Health  Officer who has been in Phoenix for  two days left on Thursday afternoon  for Kamloops. When seen by The  Times in regard to reports of small-pox  at Phoenix, he said: "People have a  very exaggerated idea of the extent of  the small-pox there. There are only  four cases, none of ihem virulent. Immediately the disease was discovered  the City Council took very vigorous  measures and segregated all the suspects. They are all well looked after  and there is absolutely no danger of  it spreading. There is no possibility  of anyone infected passing out of Phoenix. I saw the patients just two hours  ago aud they were all sitting around  under the trees and having a good time  They are about one mile and a half  from the town near Marshall Lake."   ���  The first appearence of the disease  was in the case of Mrs. Quinilivan, an  old resident of Phoenix, on the 12th of  September. Miss Christina McDonald,  her sister Martha, and one man Harry  Selley make up the patients so far. All  are doing well and everything possible  is being done for the protection of the  public.  F. Bradshaw the man who broke the  quarentine by riding past the guards  and down the hill to Greenwood was  fined S20. Not having money to pay  his fine he is still in custody.

MacLeati said that  death was caused by pressure on  the neck which would affect the  upper pact of the spinal cord,  causing cessation of breathing.  The verdict of the Coroner's  jury exonerates the mine officials  from auy blame.-; It is that "Alexander Dawson came to his death  about 1.45 on the morning of the  9th of October, 1907, at the Rawhide mine by disobeying orders  in going into the chute. Being  caught and pinned from a fall of  rock between the rock and the  bumping block, he was crushed to  death."  The jury was composed of the  following:���E. Wellesley Whit-  taker, foreman, R. A. Nelson. W.  F. Mclnnes. Norman C. McLeod,  J. M. Sherbino and William Black  Geo. Naden, M.P.P., arrived in  Greenwood Wednesday afternoon  from his trip inland to Northern  British Columbia. Ib was on May  1st last that Mr. Naden left Greenwood, going up the .coast from  Vancouver to the mouth of the  Skeena River where he followed  the route of the G/F.P. east for  about 300 miles. .Most of the  summer was spent in, the Bulkley  River district where Mr. Naden  went back and forth through the  mineral country with pack horse  and saddle, looking over the properties on which some work had  already been done.  For part of the summer Mr,  Naden saw a good deal of George  Findlay but before he had left,  Findlay taking with him DanMc-  Glashan had gone into the Babine Range district on a prospecting tour. Of the success of this  venture nothing is yet known.  These two men have however  taken up some land in the Bulkley  Valley where Mr. Naden sa<,s  there is splendid land for general  agricultural purposes.' They grow  hay and grain and fine vegetables  there.  Alf. Falconer, Ben Peterson  and "Sardo" McKay have staked  some claims near the headwaters  ofthe Tel--__wa river.; They, are  showing ""some ' Yemarkahly' 'good'  looking samples of high grade  copper ore. Jim TIatch has also  staked a claim in the same neighborhood in which he seems to have  good samples of gold ore.  ���In. the Babine Range "Tommy"  King has filed some claims which  yield Galena ore.  When the party under Angus  Nicholson passed Hazelton Mr.  Naden was in the Bulkley district  about one hundred miles south.  In this country there seems to be  lots of low grade copper ore but  lack of means for transportation  is hindering its development.  "The long sunshiny days make  growth very rapid but in climate,  it does not touch the Boundary  district and therefore it will never be as desirable a place in which  to live" said Mr. Naden.  A handsome balance of Slid.SO  to the credit of the Greenwood  Curling Club was the report of  theTreasurerat the annual general meeting held in the Court  House on Monday evening last at  eight o'clock.  The chair was taken by President Wm. G. McMynn and J. S.  Birnie was elected secretary, protein.  , Robert Wilson was appointed  auditor to examiue the books for  the season 1906-7.  The election of officers for the  season 1907-S. resulted as follows:  President, K. C. B. Frith,' Vice-  President, E. W. Bishop, Secretary-Treasurer, G. B. Taylor,  Management Committee, II. Bunting, W. G. McMynn, E. G. War.  ren, and J. S. Birnie. ���  The Secretary was asked to pre-  pere a list for the signatures of  intending members. A fee of $10  was decided upon.  Duncan Ross, M.P., intimated  that he would give the management committee the right to  amend the conditions governing  the cup which he had douated to  the club. " .

Nothing can be learned defiuitly of  the plans of the Company until  after the annual general meeting  of the shareholders of the Company which will be held in Greenwood on or about the 15th inst.  Mark F. Madden, President of  the Company is expected here this  week.  Spencer naimerinaii and James At-  ivood, of Midway arrived in Greenwood  on Tuesday night and have brought  with them some splendid samples of  copper ore from the Sturgeon Lake  District. The ore is nil free milling  and some of the hip h'grade copper and  gold will null at about SH10 a ton. On  one of the locations, the ore crops out  for about 500 feet with an average  width of 2 feet. Mr. Bannerman also  located a lar^e bed of low grade ore  j\'hich^wJlLyji���d._.boat_i*20.a^ton.-71'h!S  bed is about 20 feet wide and can be  traced on the surface for about 800 fe:t.  These are only examples of the kind of  mineral the country contains. The  two claims staked by Mr. Daniiernian  are-about 12 miles from the main line  of the G. TV P. and about 33 miles  from the Port Arthur Branch. They  are north of Ignac*.:, a point on the C  P.. R. 145 miles west of Fort William.

Railway from Denoro  to Midway was reflected in tlie  reprsentative attendance and the  serious attention of the 'meeting  called by Mayor Bunting and  President Russel of the Board of  Trade on Monday afternoon last.  The phair was taken by Mayor  Bunting.  Duncan Ross. M.P.. was requested to address the meeting. He  referred to the fight in parliament  to secure the necessary legislation  authorizing the construction of a  railway through the Boundary  Country by the V.V. & E. Railway Company and westward from  Midway to the Similkameen and  the coast.  Mr. Ross also pointed out that  opponents of this legislation  claimed that the object of legislation was to run feeders from the  Great Northern railway system to  the mining camps of Southern  British ^Columbia and that no'  through railway from the Coast  to Kootenay would be built; that  these arguments were met by letters from Mr. J: J. Hill in which  he stated that the only object in  crossing;.the international Boundary line to United States.was to  avoid insurmountable difficulties  of construction ; that this view  was confirmed by the chief engineer, Mr. Kennedy, *who appeared  before the railway committee and  showed by a large map which was  placed before the committee that  the new work would be commenced at a point on the Phoenix  branch near Denoro following the  Valley of Boundary Creek throu�� h  Greenwood to Midway -and from  Midway westward to Bridesville  all on the Canadian side ; that  under clause 3 of the V. V. & E.  Act the Governor - in - Council  granted the necessary permission  to cross the International Boundary Hue near Bridesville and  again into Canadian territory at  or near Chepaca on the Similka  mcen-River^thaMhe^consent-oi-  the Governor-in-Council was secured for these crossings and  these crossings only.  Mr. Ross stated that so far as  he was concerned he would insist  that the company should live up  to the conditions under which they  secured the legislation and that  he was determined that no further  concessions should be granted the  company until it showed a bona-  fide intent to carry out the* railway constructions that these conditions involved. He also related  what steps he had taken by correspondence and olherwi*--.- to secure the construction o! :ne railway as shown by the plan approved by the (iovenior-in-Cou-ictl.  He would be very glad to have  the assistance of the people of  Greenwood in securing the construction of the road from Denoro  to Midway.  After Mr. Ross answered a number of questions asked bv the audience a committee composed nf  W. T. Hunter, C. H. Fair .im-  Judge Hallett was appointed to  interview Smelter managements  and draft a resolution addressed  to,. Sir Wilfrid Laurier respect fu) !y  rc _uesting the Government to  take what steps might be deemed  of sterling qualities and his death is  deplored by his associates who re  cognize in him one who exemplified the  Christian character. At the end he  he was conscious and told his father,  who had hastened from Vernon to lie  at his side, that he was content and  ready to die.  j necessary to procure the construction of the railway from Denoro  to Midway.  A hearty vote of thanks wns  tendered Mr. Ross for his lucid  explanation of matters relating  to the V. V. & E. railway. mmmmmmmmmwmwwmmmm  CF*,  CF*\  CF*\  CF*\  ��� CF*\  CF*\  CF*'.

Ritfht   at   our   own doors, we  have had during the last week  oue of those strangely inadvisable  actions of a ^reat corporation  which do more than anything  else could possibly do to rob them  of public sympathy and the support upon wljich they must rely  for their future existence. The  C.P.R. Telegraph Company cannot afford any more than other  corporation to become a  bully in  ted Press, the association of we'st-  tern papers formed first by the  Winnipeg newspapers to protect  their own service. Under the  opposition of the C.P.R., the W.  A.P. is increasing in its, connections everywhere.  The newspapers that have joined   it,   acting    together    control  the     news     service    they     get.  If it is not satisfactory they have  the power in their own hands  to  improve   it.    They   make   their  own contracts ; eng-a^e their own  correspondents ;    determine    the  character and the volume  of the  service   they   receive.       Matters  unfavorable to the projects or purposes of the C.P.R. are'not eliminated   or   quietly   dropped.    The  association has  no axe to  grind.  Should it happen, however,that  the C.P.R. could become  too  active and too effective an antagonist of the  W.A.P. there   is   still  little to fear.    The temper of the  Laurier government  is  too  well  known in the country to admit any  uneasiness   on   this   point.    For  while it has never shown itself inclined   to  batter out of existence  any legitimate enterprise, it has  -been^a.La_.LJ-ime.s__mQs.t_.-teAdy___L  take any necessary measures,however stringent,to protect the public from encroachment by  greedy  combinations   of   capital.     And  unless   the   C. P. R.   Telegraph  Company   sees   it way  to  retire  gracefully from the unreasonable  position it has assumed in relation  to  the   Nelson   Daily  News and  other papers, we may expect to see  some very definite action from the  a splendid illustration in the welcome home extended to Hon. "W. S.  Fielding and Hon. L..P. Brodeur  on their arrival at Quebec last  Friday. The way of success in  affairs of state, in business, or in  ordinary life is not usually the  way of the "knocker."  A few years ago, when Sir Wilfrid Laurier first, proposed that  Canada should have the power to  negotiate her own treaties, his  dream, however desirable it was  considered,seemed to many people  impossible. The Conservative  press waved the old flag like a  sombrero about its head, in order  to frighten a loyal and intelligent  public.  The conclusion is before us.  As Sir Wilfrid Laurier said just  two days before this reception in  his address at Toronto :  "It has long been the desire, if I mistake not, of the Canadian people that  we should be entrusted with the negotiation of our own treaties, especially in  regard to commerce .... Without  revolution, without any impairment of  our allegiance, the time lias come when  Canadian interests are entrusted toCan-  adians, and just within the last week  a treaty has been concluded with  France a treaty which appeals to Can  ada alone, and has been negotiated by  Canadians alone. True, it has been  done with the whole assent of the British Crown, and with the assent of the  Foreign Office. The Foreign office interposed no objection at all; but on the  contrary, the-Foreign Office told us,  this is a matter which chieliy concerns  yourselves; take the matter in your  own hands. The treaty has been com  pleted."  A little, calm, clear headed  statesmanship is the cause of it  all.  PLAIN TALES JM KIPLING  Speaks to the New Nation  connection with its press service.  GoYernment in the very near fut  Its action in refusing to supply  the Nelson News with Associated  Press despatches because it had  criticized the service is perfectly  ridiculous. Hardly less foolish is  it for them to make such a stipulation in the contract of any  newspaper. Todominate aud control the-news matter of the country  may. of course, he of incalculable  benefit to the C. P.R. Telegraph  Company but to Haunt the fact of  such control in the face of an intelligent public seems hardly conceivable in men having the business ability to direct and administrate the affairs of so large an  institution.  Such action will,of course.meet  its own reward. Public opinion  in Canada is happily too strong  and too deeply sensitive to accept  such "imbecile autocracy.'' The I  affair has already strengthened \  lhe hands of the Western Assoc.  tire.  VVK MAKE OUR   TREATIES.  "Peace   hath   her victories" is  part of an old saying  which  had  Perhaps no man in all the world  is sowell fitted as Rudyard Kipling to-speak to the young, men  of a new country about the ideals,  the things towards which they  are working* in the life of the nation. Every man worthy of the  name should have a serious interest^ in political life in the highest  meaning of thai. word. Kipling-���  for all his disciples Call him that  ���has come to Canada again  after fifteen years, aud as Rev. C.  W. Gordon said at the Canadian  Club in Winnipeg a few days ago  we receive him as warmly as we  do because we feel that though he  has not had the good fortune to  be born among us,heisa thorough  Canadian���because he cherishes  the same ideals, praises the same  type of manhood, aud represents  in his .own person those qualities  of character that we in Canada  aspire to reproduce.  Kipling's response to the appreciation shown him is well worthy  of publica'tion in every paper in  Gauada^It_s-.he-expression-of-au-  idealistic man,but we are all idealists whether we like to confess it  or not. The modest statement of  Kipling's ideal is iu these words :  "I have I.confess it now, done nr--  best for about twenty years to  make all the men of the sister  nations within the empire interested in each other. Because I  know that at heart all our men  are pretty much alike, in that  they have the same problems, the  same asperations and the same  loves and the same hates; aud  when all is said and done, we  have only each other to depend  upon. And if, through any good  fortune, any work of mine has  helped to make the boys all over  the world understand each  oth er  a little bit���I wont say understand��� to keep them more interested in each other, then great is  my reward."  But there were other things to  be said to the people of Winnipeg  which are no less true of a hundred other cities of Western Canada. The "dealer in words" as  Kipling styles himself put his  faith in this great country in the  words that follow:  "The visions that youroldmeu  saw fifteen years ago I saw translated today into stone and brick  and concrete. The dreams that  your young men dreamed I saw  accepted as the ordinary facts of  every day life, aud they will in  turn, give place to vaster and  more far-reaching imaginations.  Gentlemen, this record of unsurpassed achievenent, and my admiration for it, is as keen as my  envy. I say my envy, because as  3'ou know, I have spent a large  portion of my life among men of  my own blood and race iu other  lands less fortunate than this land  ���among men who are laboring  with their brains aud the sweat of  their bodies to build up new cities,  and to make firm the outworks of  civilization.  "These things are not accomplished except b*^ the hardest of  toil, high courage, eternal, sacrifice, and very often bitter disappointment. The mere buildings  and'streets of a town do not tell  that story to the outsider, but no  man who has been present, as I  have been present, at the building  of a new city, or foundation of a  new community���no man who  has been at the birth throes of a  nation, can fail to hear thatsiory  cried aloud, as it. were, by every  block, store or private residence  that he passes. Therefore, my  heart goes out to the city of your  love and your pride, because I  know what lies behind, the- mere  houses iu the streets that one sees.  I know the passion and the sacrifice that went to Vnc. upbuilding  of each, and that will continue to  go to its existence, and to give all ,  that its existence implies." j  "But I find cause  for   a deeper  appeal in other things than those  -which you were good   enough   to  show nie to-day.    I have realized  the existence of an assured nationhood.    The spirit of a people contented not to be another people or  the imitators of    any other people���contented to. be themselves.  This spirit of course, existed"  fifteen years agOjbutthat spirit as,I  remember���and I have not forgotten some of my walks and talks in  the' city���then  doubted   a  little.  It found it necessary  to  explain.  It stated  its  position, and,   pre-  haps, it waited  a  little   to see  what other people thought of its  position.    Thank God I find   no  echo of that mood here to-day.    I  can feel by the men on the streets  and see by a thousand signs, that  here is a people in their own land,  whose  heart    springs    go  down  deep into the fabric, and who will  b^tfustees^for'a^nation  00000-000000000000000<KKHX>0  CONTRACTOR  AND BUILDER  Dealer   in    Sash,   Doors,  Turned  Work  and  Inside Finish,  Etc,  ESTIMATES FURNISHED-  GREENWOOD,   :   B, C.  5 -PHONE  6_. 6  FOR-  FRESH'FISH    FINNAN HADME  Copper Street  sc ���& 4*4-���& 4��-&-&���-& 4*-fr^ ty ty tytyty*  ty"  Is  unexcelled, as  is  evidenced by  its  its-popularity in all the towns  -   of the Boundary.

"Blae Ribbon" Carries Off Grand  Prize for Highest Quality  at World's Competition.  MEDALS   FROM  BEtil  Sare Trophies Won at tlie Interna*-  tional Hygienic and Pure Food  Exposition at Antwerp.  MILWAUKEE, "Wis., Oct. C���Valued  above the other hundreds of awards voted  to the Pabst brewwlnu.company by national and International expositions hold  at various times in the past few decades,  a collection of awards which 'was received  by Col. Custave Pabst from Antwerp will  occupy n higher'place In the esteem of  the company than all the other medals  in the Pabst collection.  The awards were brought to Milwaukee  by special emissary from (he Jnlern-ttion-tl  Hygienic and Pure Food exposition at  Antwerp, Belgium, and include the cross  of honor of Belgium, known us the grand  prize of the exposition, a gold mednl and  a diploma elaborately studded'with seals  of noted Europeans, and setting forth  that Pabst "Blue Ribbon," the beer of  .quality, received the highest award for  purity and excellence at the great exposition held in Antwerp. The awards  "were made only after the severest tests  known to enlightened science, and demonstrate, under the signatures juul seals of  the jury and commissioners, that the  product of the Pabst Brewing company  stood alone among hundreds of other  beers submitted at Antwerp for the exhaustive tests of experts.  The arrival of the special messenger  from Belgium wns an event at the oflices  Of the Pabst Brewing, company, and already the medals have been exhibited to  many Milwaukecans interested in the excellence of this city's product as compared  with that of the best known breweries in  two hemispheres.  GET HIGHEST POSSIBLE HONORS.  The.gold medal,.which is about two and  a half inches In diameter, bears on one  side the head in relief" of King Leopold  of Belgium, who Was the patron of the  exposition at Antwerp. On tho other side  Is a likeness, also in relief, of the huge  building at Antwerp in which tlio pure  food and hygienic exhibit was held.  7 The cross of honor, or grand.prize, is of  beautiful design, somewhat similar to  other high European orders: It hears  decorations of oak leaves set In gold aiid  : red enamel. In tho middle of the modal  proper Is the coat of arms of the city of  Antwerp. The medal is attached to the  crown of Belgium, which in turn is .suspended from a ribbon of the trl-color of  Belgium.  DIPLOMA OF BEAUTIFUL DESIGN.  The diploma setting, forth the fact that  "Blua Ribbon" beer was awarded the  grand prlx at the Antwerp exposition is a  beautifully designed document bearing  four idealistic figures. The entire wording is in the French language, the court  language of Belgium. The body of the  diploma sets forth that the "diploma do  grand   prix"   lias   been   awarded   to   the  , Pabst Brewing company of Milwaukee.  The  array   of   official   signatures   is   the  "  chief -feature of the document.   The diplo-  m; Is signed by the president of the jury  which awarded the honors, by the lord  mayor of the" city of Antwerp, honorary  member; the administrator guner.il, aad  president of the committee of commercial  patronage.  The signatures of the exposition officials  are verified and attested to by the minister  of foreign affairs of tlie Royal Belgium  government. All these signatures are in  turn attested to by the vice and deputy  consul general representing the United  States government at Antwerp, the two  certifications being written in tlie lower  margin of Hie diploma and-accompanied  by the respective sen is of ofiice.  The'background of the.middle portion of  the diploma sets forth in dim outline a  view from the harbor of the port of Antwerp, showing'the great shipping interests  and in the extreme background the famous cathedral of Antwerp with its high  ; steeple. .  With the rising, interest, much-greater  in European countries than in the United  Slates, in pure foods and the general subject of hygiene, the International Hygienic  and Pure Food exposition' has assumed/an  important place. To-day its exhibits are  the Mecca for thousands of manufacturers, scientists, legislators and workers for  the public good from every corner of the  world. Tho awards of the juries are made  with suc.'i unmistakable Impartiality and  arc so decidedly announced for or againsi  certain food products that the .-knowledge  gained from a ,vi;:It to the exposition  serves as absolute protection against  fraud.

In Europe the exposition is aiiiHiiilly given thu greatest pub-,  llelly throughout the illffcronl centers, of  population, it being the understood object  to apprise the people of what is good and  what is not good for their general 'welfare.  The expositions of IlllK! and l!H'f were attended by thousands, of tourists' from  America, the recent rise of public interest  In the subject of pure foods encbtiraglhg'  investigation In the products .pf the wprld  brought loKcUier in one vast exhibit.  The department of brewing at the Antwerp exposition'was one of the chief features. The fact Hint the first beer wns  brewed In what is now the ki.ngdor, of Belgium added to the interest in tho.exhibit  and inspired wonderful showings from the  different interests of  the world.    All  the  great breweries of Germany, .America,  England and other countries made efforts  to excel in their exhibits,, and when the  time came for tlio highest awards interest  was at fever heat.  The tests of the hundreds of samples of  bottled beers were most severe. The jury  which made the' exhaustive testa of the  brewery products was made up of scientists, university professors and chemists  of note appointed by the Belgium minister  of education.  SUBJECTED TO HEAT AND COLD.  The jury's task was a severe one, the  tests of each beer extending over a considerable time. Pabst "Blue Ribbon" beer,  along with all the others, was for weeks  alternately subjected to1 extreme degrees  of heat and cold. Of all tho beers so  tested Pabst "Blue Ribbon" beer was the  only oiie found upon examination-to retain  all the properties ������originally, contained In  the brew. Jt was finally determined,that  tlie "Blue Ribbon" beer took first place  among all the other varieties submitted  by American and European breweries.  Consequently the highest possible honora  of the exposition \ycrc awarded.  The fact that the American beer took  first place was all the more remarkable  from the 'ftict that it was necessarily  transported a great distance, a factor that  might ordinarily have been a decided  handicap as against other beers sent, to  Antwerp. The time that the beer was'in  transit from tlie brewery in Milwaukee  was something like four weeks, and it is  a generally accepted theory .Chat beer loses  through transportation. - The Pabst beer  .apparently-was unaffected. Its durability  and pureness were found upon examination.to be without fault,  The exposition at Antwerp this year was  held during the mouths of June, July and  August, the months in which the tourisb  travel is largest. It was opened by King.  Leopold, under whose protectorate it was  held, the various .monarchies and the  French republic appointing delegates to  represent them.in tlie international show,,  The exhibits- were placed in���;, tlio' great  building.jerqeled several years,ago,at,.Ant-  . werp and, designed especially for large expositions of tlie nature of the pure food  show. The juries appointed to make tests  in the soveral departments of tlie exposition wero'appoin tod by the Belgian minister of education���with the approval of the  'ciirrerent"iiiition.s participating in the gathering, the members being selected with  special view to their peculiar fitness to  judge of the merits of tlie products coining  under their examination. One of the noted  members of the jury whioh undertook the  stupendous task of testing the bottled  beers aiid awarding prizes was Prof,  Alfred Jorgensen of Copenhagen, Ben-  mark, than whom there Is no better known,  authority on the subject of scientific and i  hygienic brewing. Others on the jury  .were men of undoubted ability in their  line. The fact that the host-of exhibitors  in the department of brewing unanimously  approved of the membership of the jury  bespeaks their ability.  it is probable that the awards now in  tlie care of tha Pabst Brewing company  Will be placed on exhibition at an early  date, it being tho desire of the officials to  permit the public at large to cxamjne the  medals and "diploma signifying the par excellence of Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer.

A.t  Thia Exposition Pabst "Blue Ribbon" Beer Was Pronounced by International Experts to Be the Purest and of the Beat Qualities.  Subscribe to The Times  But to come back to Wall Street  and that sixty million. One of  the leading- bankers of Toronto;  the other day, made a statement  in private which put the banks  clear out of court when considering the situation from the business man's point of view. He said  that the situation could be relieved entirely if every business man  and corporation of Canada, great  and small, would reduce his or  its entire operations by five per  cent. That, he said, would remove from this country all traces  of money stringency and there  would then be plenty to carry on  the business of the country.  It will probably come*as a surprise to many to learn that the  margin between stringency and  affluence is only five per cent.  It. sounds good, if it is -true. But  we find the total loans in Canada,  as I mentioned.before, approximated six hundred and thirty  million, while we have in Wall  Street sixty millions on call and  twenty four millions of other  kinds of loans. Now five per cent,  of the total in this country is just  over thirty millions,or about one-  half the amount on call in Wall  Street. What reasonable excuse  can.the. banks of Canada offer for  cramping- and inconvienciug and  hammering* the commerce of tho  coantry, when one-half the  amount they have lo?ned to gamblers and speculators in the United States would relieve our situation here. There is something  mighty inconsistent in the statement that the banks are doing all  in their power to relieve* the Canadian situation, wben it could be  relieved as easily as this Toronto  banker says it could, while they  are at the same time keeping- Canadian money in New York at the  disposal of the sharks of United  States commerce.���Saturday Sunset.-  ed aud trusting love that bad its  origin in the outcast life of the  street waifs at pier 46 in the great  city, with the manly honor and  final reward of the kidnapped  bootblack who possesses noble  traits of honor and integrity,make  a drama that fascinates while it  pleases.
