Ivl't Bovvcn introduced tiie  speaker of the evening, aftci a few  pieliminaiy icmarks, iu which he ex-1  pressed lus'sinceic gtalitude foi the  success which had been attained by  the Lord's Day Alliance-Society and  exptossing his legret at the veiy ap-  paient non-obsetvunce of the Sabbath iby a huge lnwmber ot Ladysmith residents. r  The Rev. Air. Slieaict, iu lising to  address the assemblage, stated that  he had always found it advis.iWc, in  speaking to an audience, to choose  an int'Cicsting theme, and stick, to  that throughout the discourse.  in British Columbia he had found  the majoiity of people mostly interested in the battle for the Lord's  Day m Ottawa, ' and thcrcfoic, In*  would endeavot to show how this  battle had been won by the Society  sotting forth some of the difliculties  met and over  come by thc Society.  Fust,  hovvevei, he  vvished  to    ev-  pass.i'ge of ,the ai#, "and how much  moie," added the speaker, " would  the speech been effective had the  Premier been m a position o state  as' he would 'be today, that such a  law in France has actually been pass  ed, and today Sunday is observed  throughout the length and ityeadth of  Fraucc."  The speaket then went to detail  legarding the difliculties 'ncoautered  befoic the act finally passed. He  stated that in the fltst place theie-  was a petition- signed by 13,000, presented by the Seventh Day Advent-  lsts, asking that the bill be not  nude law; thc Jews of Canada had  made vigorous piotcsts to the act,  had been repie&entcd by veiy- able  laivvycis, and amongst their arguments advanced . the claim that theie  wexe in the neigliilKoihood of 40,000  Jews in Canada, who weie all opposed to the passage of  the bill.

Inferring to the Sunday newspapen.  clause, Mr.  Shearer, stated that   tha  Alliance had  expected much  opposw  tion ou this point, but asr-ain     sucli  had not  been the case.     In BritisS  Columbia there aie about  five     pa-*  peis which will be affected hy     the  change,  and three in Montreal.      It  was true that these papers sent in m  protest  to  the house of parliam mtt  hut this  protest had scaiccly     teen  eonsideiod.     In fact,  a clause     had  been added which the Alliance   - -mie  had not even asked for   to   the   ef- ���������  feet that  no Sunday papers from the-  United  States be allowed  to tircul-j  ate, or be btought into thc countirjj  on a  Sunday.    Speaking of the Sunday papers, the lecturer stated - thaH  he had done much tiaveling   in    the  United States, and he v'-as of the op-j  fnion from his observations, that tha  Sunday papers, ot   "Yellow journals"!  as he  designated Vome of them, were"  in-*  answer to this last argument,     the  speaket and his party had looked up c|oing I1101e hatiu'thau any other  the census, and found that in 1901 ���������__I10e ;n ((,10 Ulllted Sla(es  there weie in all 1,800 Jews in the Coming to the Railway question ,  The only reply the Jew- the speaker stated that this brought,  hot on the biggest fight of all.

Before  becoming effective, .however, it must  be ratified by the seven alliliatcd  unions. This, it is thought, will  be easily obtained and as a result  the strike will he declared off.  The action of the caniu.n Itiij-ht  was practically forced by their national organization, and is a complete back down from the position  taken at a mass meeting several-  days ago. It was persistently -rum-  bred during the day that President  W. T). Mahon, of the Amalgamated  Association of Street Railroad Employes of America, with which the lo-i  cal union is affiliated, had ordered  the men hack to work under throats  oV revoking their charter. This was  denied by the loaders, who, however,  admitted that they had received a  telegram'from. Mahon, the contents  ot which they refused to give tonight.  President Calhoun stated tonight  that he would take all the car men  back and could also use all thc mon  he had imported. The end of the  strike followed a day of intense excitement around the car barns, where  strike-breaker, guards fired severar-'  volleys at a mob.  which had no Sunday observance.  Fot instance, he had always heard,  and it was tho gcneial itiipicssion in  Mie .e.istcin piov luces, that on Yan-  eouvoi Island no Sunday law enisled Whoihoi this vvas the case at  piesent or not, as a icsult of the  Lotd's Day .vet, uftci the fust ol  "March, Vancouvei Island, as. well as  the rest of Canada, would have ,t  Sunday law, and nothing could be  mote a'dvanlaigeous to l-he islam*  than this should be the case  Again icicmiig to thc woik done  at the house of parliament in the  passage of this Act, the speaker  dwelt on the speech of' Premier Lau-  l'iisr, when the matter cam-c up for  discussion. The Premier had luriiod  to his Frciich-Caiiaidian followeis,  amongst w-lioni Wore many opposed  to-thepassa-gc of the act, and in an  eliKjjueiit speech, had reminded them  that sonic 200 years ago, in what  lie conceived to he an evil hour, the  great French nation had abolished all  Sunday  observance acts,   and     since  anyone  Reguuling the Sunday Excutsion  clause, not much dtfllcully had been  encountered heie, although il had  been expected. It seemed, however,  (hat the Sundaj exclusions had noi  friends, even among the transportation'companies, and hence this clauso  passed. Rogaiding the Sunday  spoils, this had received some opposition. The speaket then /went on  to explain the leal oh|oct of the Alliance iu putting a stop to Sunday  ���������...lines, etc. lie stated that fhoic  v.as a mistaken impiession prevailing in some, parts that the Alliance  wished to interfere with the personal' liberty of the people. The object  of the Alliance, was not to stop little picnic parties from going on excursions by themselves, or to try  and make a man sit with folded  anus all day Sunday. What thc  Alliance was after was to got a Sun  day for thc workin-gniau and others,  and then let them decide for themselves how  they would spend it.   Ac-j  that day no legal Sunday has been' cording to thc Bill, it would be unlawful for any games to be played  lo which an admission of any kind  was cliarejed, or in which any of lhe  principals were receiving pay for  their play. For instance, is a pitcher in -a basobtall game received pay  for his services during the game,  the whole team and any of the spectators present would be liable according to the Act. This was done,  in order (.hat no one could be operating amusements of any kind, in whicfcl  others were obliged to work, for  commercial gain.  In this respect, the speaker took  much pleasure in referring to the  speech of Ralph Smith, M.P., when  that gentleman had spoken in Nanaimo tho night previous, on this subject. Mr. Smith had advanced arguments which could not be   met by  known in France. 'However, the I're-  'inier had added, he had certain in for-/  mation that the French Chamber of  deputies were about to pass a Sunday observance act, and bo believed  that if such vvas the case, it would  be the best act for the whole nation which had been passed for many  years. The reason that these steps  'were being taken in France vvas owing to the fact that the-groat musses of the working "nicn had asked to  have a Sunday lavvi For 200 yards  Sunday had gradually rccod-.i from  a day of. vest and enjoyment, until  at the present time in France, it  was a working day for the working  man, and no  day of rest existed.  Mr. Shearer claimed that the  speech of Sir Wilfrid Laurier wa^  one of  the greatest factors   in " the  imttee,  and to the members  of par-  ment,      that ? two of  the  largest  railways  in   the  United  States had,  of their own accord,  within the past  two    yeais,      done     away,  with the  greatest part of their Sunday   tiaf-  fic, claiming that it  was bettei    for  the men,  for the tolling slock,   and  conscjcmently for the dividends    that  Sunday be observed as much as possible,    'lhe Alliance had also   introduced  expert  advice  which had beea  gathered    fiom all over the   Dominion, and tue  speaker had been    employed a year and a half previously  in gathering up information and facta  I to  be brought before the committee,  ��������� which had    in the end proved    suc-  Icessful,    and the Alliance had    trr-  umphod.

Fully two ..months have elapsed  since the Duke of Abruzzi won his  freshest laurels as an explorer, but  only within a few days has a del ailed account of his achievements in  Central Africa become available for  scrutiny. I-loncc it is now possible  for the. first jtimc lo dispel several  uncertainties which have existed  since the success of tho Italian was  briefly announced by cable.  Geographers will be glad to learn  that the height of the loftiest peak-  in thc Ruwenzori range is determined beyond a doubt by barometric  measureiment, and is no longer a mat  ter of guesswork, however shrewd.  This summit, which in honor of the  Queen Dowager of Italy, has been  named Margherila, rises to an elevation of IS,220 feet, and is, therefore  one hundred feet higher than M-l. St.  Elias, which the Duke of Abruzzi  ascended in 1897. The difficulties of  mountain, clirn"bdng are not, of course,  exactly proportionate to height  above sea level, but "on the face of  the returns" the performance of nine  years ago has been surpassed.���������New  York Tribune.  the iaOXSjiuxu daily U3U.G-ER  _______���������____&���������'  ������������������������������������������������������"���������>��������� urn  PAIN FROM,A BURN PROMPTLY  RELIEVED BY CflAMlJER-  LAIN'S PAl-N BALM'.

It is" interesting at a time when  the greatest Medical Association in  the, world is about to,, gather in Toronto, to note some of the most  xecentadvances in thc science of medicine, and acknowledge once more,  the great debt humanity owes to tho  noblest of professions. Medical research has more than kept pace wil'^  the increasing strain and worry of  modern conditions, and 'has made tho  average life longer than in the iq,uiel-  ���������er, soberer days of our grandfathers.  More than statesmen or philanthropists, the doctors must be recognized  as the chief benefactors of the race.  Of all diseases that are common,  cancer is the most dreadful, and at  the moment it is the most interesting to the medical profession. Many.  have been the alleged cures discovered, wealthy have become the quacks  who profess to heal; but aonong the '  leading medical scientists who have  devoted themselves to its investigation none has been able to report  such progress as Dr. Beard. Some  of his results were discussed in these  columns a few days ago, and the  hope held out that his researches  had been in part successful. Bux a  day or two later the London cables  brought the news that Beard's trypsin hall been abandoned by a leading  hospital. Should this be credited  witli important discoveries, even,  should they not immediately result  In' a remedy for the disease. Only a  year ago another distinguished medical man, Dr. Doyen, of Paris, had  to acknowledge failure in his efiorts  to cure cancer. Doctors were not  disappointed in this result, for Doyen based his claim on a theory of  the disease that was at v.niancc  with established conceptions. JLe, inT  sisted on regarding it as caused by  liacterial and his^Jailurc to diagnose  and cure was complete.  Against this failuie of medical science,   or  rather the postponed     victory, many notable triumphs may be  set.    Tuberculosis    is no  longer   the  scourge it.  was  ten years  ago.     No  new    medicine   has    been discoveicd  that will conquer it, beyond thc sui-  geon's knife it  lies,  and if  year   by  year   its ravages   are less,     we may  thank common sense as  much as doctors.       Good    living,    in a hygienic  sense of the expression, is the    curt)  lor consumption; and it almost ranks!  as a specific like iron,  mercury   and  quinine.'   To die of  typhoid fever is  becoming more    and more    difficult,  thanks to preventive measures.  "For  every fatal case  of typhoid,," declared a great    doctor recently,  ''someone ought to be hanged for criminal  carelessness."     Diphtheria  is  another disease whose mortality has been  almost removed, thanks to,antitoxin  A few years ' ago it was as  deadly  as a plague.  Smallpox has been conquered    by  sanitation, and its most  dreaded results���������disfigurement���������has been banished by Dr.  Finsen's    light cure.    Appendicitis, which under the name    of  colic,  and |,obscure 'terms  ending    in  ���������"itis," has    -been    slaying its thousands for hundreds of years, is now  at the mercy of the surgeons.    How  sure are the results of  expert opera-'  ��������� tion in this disease, may be   judged  ' irom the    fact     that Sir Frederick  .Treves, the English surgeon who re  cently retired, opeiated on :i thousand private' cases of appendicitis,  and lost not   one.  Pneumonia remains a growing menace, but the sleuth hounds of medical research are on its trail, and  sooner or later will deprive it of its  terrors. Rheumatism probably; causes  as 'much suffering as ������all these diseases put together, although it is'a  malady that many profess to cure.  Nevertheless it persists, mysterious  and universal. Medical men n-enei-  ally explain it as the result of bacteria in the system, but a minority  maintains that it is produced solely  and directly through the operation of!  well known chemical laws, resulting  entirely from improper eating. Dr.  Winters, a Cornell lecturer, takes  this giound, and insists that a vegetarian and non-alcoholic diet is a  sure prevention and a sure cure for  rheumatism. He declares positively  that so long as a person troubled  with rheumatism takes alcohol, it is  impossible for him to  be cured.
