REJECTS CANCER THEORY
Professor Mayo Robson's lecture
on the treatment of cancer, before
the Royal college ol Surgeons, London, has aroused general interest.
Tlic ftcactuerc rejected thc principal
positive conclusion arrived *yl by the
nicnilicrs ol tiie Imperial Cjjgcr Research Coiiuiiission. They concurred''
in the opinion that as a cancer ..5s
found to pervade thc wjiolc vl'rte-
lirato kingdoml prcsontiitR* everywhere the same fundamental characteristics, it must lie inferred that
such things as food, habitat and general conditions ol lite do not have a
causative influence, the irrcsislablc
conclusion being that it is not permissible to seek causative factors
for cancer outside the life processes
of the cells.
Rohson strongly deprecated the has
ty assumption thai thc cause ol
cancer wns non-parasitic. The failure to discover a parasite was no
proof that the solution ol the question was.hopeless. Another striking
feature was Robson's hopeful statement in refciiril to a radical t noat.iin.it,
with the knife. It could lie al.so-
lulely proved, he said, tliat cancer
was at llrst a local and only later
became a Constitutional malady.
He strongly urged JJic importance
of the earliest possible treatnrint,
when removal was possible   without

The dosing down of the Ladysmith
Lumber Co.'s mill at Fiddick's will
throw out of employment temporarily seventy men, half -6! them white
ir-,ri, employed about the mill or in
rli_ woods. Mr. Cobum, the manager, staled last night when interviewed on thc subject, that the course
was reluctantly taken, but there was
nrit a single order for lutnibcr ahead,
r.-.l the only possfolc thing to tlo
1. as lo close down till thc lumber
trade recoicrod somewhat from its
.1.; irssinn. He hoped that the mill
would re-opeh in March. This closing down of mills had been looked
upon by sonic people who did nut
irndorslanil the situation as a mere
I lull', or as pressure to bring about
llie imposition of a duly on lumber
imported from the States. It was,
bowovcr, nothing of ihe kind— the
Northwest market had been tilled
with foreign lumber and lire mills
here had simply to shut down lor
want ot orders. .When he was iu
W'itinipeg, a couple ol weeks ago,
tlic amount of free lumber that bad
been up to that time imported Irom
the Slates was lifty million feet and
it was estimated that at the two
other principal points of entry, Portal on the c__t and Suma'sroh the
west, another fifty million feet had
been imported! Under such conditions as now exist the British Columbia mill man was,shut out.
The demand lor shingles, however,
continued and the shingle mill here
would continue to run. The market lor that material was not in a
depressed condition that the lumber
trade suffered  from.

V.;, Hell, wlio was appointed receiver

today when he announced that he
had found the securities had been <lc-

Alter going over the papers with
County Prosecutor Kceler, and llie

Hell altered his statement, saying
that he had overestimated tho 11111-
lunt by $10,2-111,0011, the face 0! tlle
trust agreement. There wore two
copies of this agreement among tbo
papers neither of them being marked
as duplicates, and lie had considered
them as separate documents. It was
the opinion' ot botlh tlie receiver and

trust agreement was intended to bo

therefore the same as previously published.

MEANING WAS CLEAR.        |
Mrs. Elizabeth Bacon Custer    has
just     returned from a tour of the I
world.      In a discussion of English
servants she said the other day:
"At a dinner party in London our
hostess told us an interesting thing.
She had just taken on anew cook, a
Scottish lass, and this young woman
though she knew thc art ol cooking
wonderfully well, was ignorant ol
wickedness and wrongdoing.
','The new cook, thc second or third
day ol her engagement, came to her
mistress awkwardly.
1 " Madam,' said she, 'I'm sorry
to trouble you, but-there's something
1 should like you to explain.'
"' 'It is no trouble, Mary,' said the
mistress kindly. 'Speak up. What is
there that lean explain to you?'
'The butcher, madam,' Mary began—'the butcher seems very kind. In
fact, he is unusually kind lor such an
elderly, rough-spoken person. He offers to give me meat lor my own private use-all the meat I can eat—
'and this morning he said something
to me that 1 can't comprehend the
meaning ol.'
'What did he say, Mary?'
'He said, Madam, that I am   to
get 5 per cent, on all thc orders    I
give    him.   Now,  what does  that
mean?'
'It means, Mary,' said the mistress, ;that we are going to change
our butcher.' "

RUSSIA SHAKEN.
Assailed from without and lorn
asunder by the interior strife between the reactionaries and those
who desire constitutional frecdolm
the lot of Russia is by no means t
happy onc. The many ilcmoiistra
tions that are going on in the various cities of the country show that
the revolutionary movement to crush
out autocracy and replace it with
a morc liberal rule, is exceedingly
widespread. And apart from those
who arc essayibg to bring about this
change by peaceful methods arc'thosc
extremists who believe in the "death
to tyrants" cry and welcome the methods of tlic assassin to remove obnoxious poisons from the path. Today the trial opens of the man
accused of thc murder ol Von Plehvo.
On Sunday there were demonstrations nt Moscow, St. Petersburg and
other cities, and all thc while the
Jaiianose shells arc being hurled oil
the wretched city ol Port Arthur
the destruction of the Russian fleet
having already been accomplished
Thc spectacle is not a pleasant one
and it will need something more than
brute lorce to restore order within
Russia. Thc dissatisfaction seems
to lie lar morc widespread than the
sporadic risings ol former years. It
is only a question ol time when the
people conquer, in another country
with the toent the gates, it would
lie possible to send every available
soldier to thc Iront. Not so in Rus
sia; great number ol troops must
be kept nit home to guard against thc
people themselves. This shows such
a want ol unity and miserable unrest that bodes not well tor the outcome o! thc present war.

YUKON ELECTION.
If the stories coming Irom    Daw-

to apply some    wholesome discipline
to tho men who have charge ol   trlie
election proceedings   just.   oow.   It
is stated     that   the   returning   ollicer and the registrars ol votes have
conspired to keep tlic list ol electors
secret and that tlic people arc so angry over the matter that tlicy arc on
the    vcrpie     of taking matters into
Uicir own hands.      Tlic government
at  Ottawa seems to have taken   the
matter up and thc secretary ol state
lias wired that the officials at    once
comply with the law and make    tllc
list public.    No doubt this will Imvc

will also act as a roprool tolheovor

HOW HE GOT
AN AUDIENCE
- Alvah D. James, the South American traveller and lecturer, was attending a dinner a few evenings ago
when someone present asked him
what part ol the country furnish.-.
the most attentive audience.
Mr. James answered the question,
and then proceeded to tell the following story concerning the most attentive audience that he ever addressed:
I was touring Eastern Virginia last
May, said Mr. James, and on a
certain Friday morning I arrived in
a moderate sized town in which I
was advertised to talk that night.
The population ol the place numbered about 5,000. I went immediately
to the hotel and spent tho morning
looking over some magazines in thc
reading room. While I was sitting'
reading I chanced to overhear a conversation between the hotel proprietor and another man, which ran
something like this:
"Is that thc chap?", said a voice.
"Yes," answered the proprietor.
"What do you think ot him?"
"What tlo I think o! him?" said tho
fellow. "Why, I think I could do as
well. That lellow can't lecture. I'll
bet a hundred dollars he won't draw
twenty people."
1- couldn't possibly help hearing it,
and you Can imagine how I lelt.
Some people would probably have Ignored it, but I just could not. Wheeling my ehair suddenly about, I looked at my critic. I saw at a glance
tllat he was consequential to a painful degree. His lace was decorated
with a Vandyke 'icard, and he wore
a derby hat cocked slightly on the
lelt side ol his head.
I looked at him good and hard,
then rose out | of my scat and walked
up to him. "So," said I, "you want
to l(cl a hundred dollars that I won't
draw twenty people?"
I lelt my lace growing red and firo
fairly burned niy tongue. Thc fellow
looked a little foolish, blushed, anil I
continued: "Now, I will tell you
whnt I will do." (Just then several
bystanders joined the group.) "I will
bet you .3110 that I draw 300 people."
It wan a staggerer. The ninn wriggled uneasily, then repented my uro-
position. He looked very uncomlorta-
ble. The hotel proprietor smiled and
two or three ol the bystanders .nickered.   This clinched thc matter.
"It's a go," said the man; "put up
your money,"
Taat was a poser lor mc, but I
asked him to give me fifteen Uiimites
wid I left thc hotel. 1 went down the
street to thc Planters bank and called lor a cashier, a man named
Simms, who married an intimate
[riend ol mine Irom my iwn home
town. I told Mr. Simms ..he rtpry,
and requested him to cud-jrsc my
cheque lor $300. He did so, and ilioih
sides posted thc money.
The moment the deal was completed I sat down and tvrote i t-.t crpy lor
a circular, This I took to the tu Inter niyslel is he would but rush it
through. At noon 2,000 circulars
wcro delivered to mc at the hotel,
and this is what was on them J
"A citizen ol your town made a
wager of $150 (note the difference in
the amount) with me this morning
that I would tail to draw 300 per-!
sons to my lecture at the opera
house this evening. It was not-lor !
the purporro of winning this $150
that I ir.ide this wager, but I took
the suggestion as a slur upon myself
and my lecture. It was, therefore,
lor the citizen's loss and not     my
gain that tho   wager    was
made.
And in accordance with this statement I make the following offer to
tlio people ol Capoosic: I will, at
thc conclusion ol my lecture this
evening, distribute this entire sum
equally among the ten most attentive listeners on my discourse. I
shall begin promptly at eight o'clock
alter which hour no one will be admitted to the. hall."
I hired three reliable boys to distribute these circulars, and in hall an
hour thc town was alive with gossip.
Dozens ol people came into the hotel to inquire and talk about it. Ami
i.o notorious had it become by onc
o'clock tliat i was compelled to retreat to my room and lock the door.
Thc alternoon wore away slowly. I
will confess that I was never morc
interested in the result of anything
in my life than in the i outcome oi
that bit of strategy. However, I
lelt quite satislied with mysclt, and
I repeatedly went over in my mind
how sick that bearded fool looked
when I said $300. I knew that it
would do my poor soul more real
good to fill that house that night
than finding o! a $10,000 gold mine.
The afternoon-, I say, wore away
slowly. At 5 o'clock I ate a light
supper and slept till 7.15. I then
dressed lor thc lecture. At 7.50 I
wallti'd down to the opera house:
As I was entering through thc stage
door I met Mr. Jordan, whom my
advance agent had engaged to introduce me.
' Have you seen it?" said Jordan.
"Seen what?" I exclaimed.
"Why, the houstc, man; it's packed
to the outside steps."
My heart gave a leap and, stepping upon thc stage 1 peeped through
thc wings. Heavens, such an audience
as my wildest dreams had nevei: conceived. They filled the scats and overflowed into the nisicsi and the very
window seats werc lined with men.
Jordan told me that the door-toper
estimated that there were 1,-00 persons present, more than had ever
been assembled in the opera house
sjn.k itjvns built.    ,,,
Acconiing to my announcement, exactly at 8 o'clock Jordan and I
walked out upon the stage. There
was a lefid clapping ol hands. But no
other sound was to be heard. Not a
loot was heard to stamp. Not a boy
wr| heard to whistle. Every eye was
riveted ou mc lp respectful attention.
Mr. Jordan Introduced mc, and I
talked lor an hour. And I venture
to say that never afchin on this earth
except, pcrhartr, under similar conditions, will a speaker ever talk to an
audience like that onc. They hung on
| my every word-my every gesture-
as though I were some prophet re-
' voaling to them t|hc mysteries ol the
future. Never for an instant did an
^ye waver from me. They drank in
my words like thirsty heathen drinking salvation. It was positively won-
i GENUINE SALE
AI
derlul.
And    the best part of it all was
that I pocketed the largest door   receipts ol my career, liesides the   extra $150, ot which no mention    was
made in the circulars.
