Two Interpreters fail to Make
Themselves Understood
to the Hindus
Was Finally Discovered that
They were Hungry and
Given Rations
Two of the Hindus who arrived
in the city recently from Vancouver
were ajrested yesterday on a charge
of vagrancy. The compaint lodged
against them was that they had been
begging from door to door. Last
night they had a hearing before Police Magistrate Cochrane. The trial
was decidedly of an opera bouffe character. The only features lacking to
complete tbe illusion were the
prima-donna and danseuse. The
prisoners could speak nothing
but Hindoostanee—and Mr. E. H,
Vaughan, who acted as one of tbe
interpreters, avers that they could
not speak even their native language.
Mr. F. W. Auvache also took a hand
at interpreting. Mr. Avauche said
he felt reasonably sure that, from
what he could gather from signs
and stray words, tbe prisoners followed the occupation of (arming,
and were anxious to secure work,
Mr. Vaughan differed from this
opinion. He maintained tbat their
description of washing dirty linen
was far more accurate than of plant*
ing rice. It was therefore natural to
infer that they were Hindoo wash
ermen. The court ventured the
opinion that the condition of the
prisoners' personal appeared to indicate that tbey knew nothing about
soap and water. Mr. Vaughan, who
is an accomplished linguist, tried all
his languages—from Arabic to
cbinook—on the prisoners without
making the slightest impression on
tbem. It was finally decided they
spoke some dead language—one tbat
had been dead and buried for about
three thousand centuries. At a late
hour the interpreters announced
that they had gathered from the
prisoners, by the sign language, that
they were hungry, but that caste
would not permit them to eat at a
white man's table. Mr. Vaughan
asked one of them, in Hindoostanee,
or words to that effect, how many
days it had been since he had
bad a square meal. The man immediately began to count on bis
lingers until he reached about 100.
At this startling annoucement the
chief of police became visibly agitated, and be at once sent out telephone messages to the different
merchants, making anxious enquiries
as to their stocks of rice and flour
on hand.
The case was finally adjourned
until today, After the trial Chief
Savage supplied the prisoners with
flour and rice, and they cooked their
meal and dined sumptuously.
Among the  interested spectators
in the courtroom, were a number of
Chinamen.   They evidently wanted
to know what the authorities were
i going to do with their competitors.
"Better Terms"
Victoria Times: The Times said
before he departed for Ottawa that
Premier McBriae would not go wilh
the intention of arriving at a settlement with the dominion on the question of better terms, but with the fix- j
ed intention tn turn the question of
better terms to political account. All
observers of the proceedings of the inter-provincial conference, whether conservative or liberal in their political
leanings, are agreed that is exactly
what Premier McBride, after his usual shallow, transparent fashion, attempted to do. He displayed neither
business sagacity nor political common
He "carried on" exactly as
we have seen hiin do in the legislature
when the tactics of the poker table!
were considered the final recourse in
forcing through some such reprehensible deal as the Dewdney or the
Kaien island measure. Of course, his
bluff waB thrown away upon the provincial premiers, as Mr. McBride well
knew it would be. It was carried off
for another purpose. He was posing
as a bold hero before the people of
British Columbia. He withdrew with
a boast and a threat upon his lips.
The conference, however, took British
Columbia's claims for special consideration and special treatment into its
serious consideration. Although we
were unrepresented, deserted and betrayed for selfish political considerations by the individual who should
have upheld our case until the end,
the assembly of provincial delegates
las recommended that we be granted
he sum of one'million dollars in an
mal installments of one hundred
thousand dollars, in addition to an
annual grant of one hundred and fifty
thousand dollars. Wo submit this is
not so bad, all the circumstances considered. But it might have been better had our premier been giving his
attention strictly to the interests of
the people he voluntarily undertook
to represent instead of to the interests
of his own political prospects. Our
dispatch from Ottawa indicates very
clearly the grave nature of the offence
committed by on premier against the
interests of the province.   It says:
He (McBride) was approached immediately afterwaids by Hon. Mr.
Fielding, who suggested to him that
he should return to the conference
when he (Mr. Fielding) would take
the responsibility of urging a larger
increase, even specifying that a portion of the amount equivalent to the
million offered should be made in perpetuity, and that an additional sum
of $40,000 a year for ten years, or
$400,000 in all, should be conceded
but Richard's blood was up, and he
turned the province down. This suggestion, if accepted, would have
brought the increased sum payable to
British Columbia to about $285,000.
It did not suit Premier McBride, who
was looking only for a grievance, to
accept this most generous offer and he
finally left the conference, bearing
with him the honest contempt of every
other proyincial premier in Canada.

"Better Terms"
The Conservative papers of this
province have had so ninch to say on
the subject of "better terms" lately,
that the people of this district might
be interested in learning of the steps
taken by Hon. Kichard McBride at
the recent conference of provincial
premiers towards securing them.
When the conference opened the
premier nf Quebec was appointed
chairman, The official record of the
proceedings is given below, but the
discussion, which bure principally up
on Premier NcHride's attitude, which
was undignified and "undiplomatic
throughout, can be obtained from the
several members of the conference who
are all, however, ready enough to
speak.
It was made very plain tn every
member of the conference on the first,
day that Premier McBride was Inuk-
ing tor a political platform and not
fnr financial help; fnr grievances, not
fnr an increased subsidy. He did
nntliing liy negotiations nr proposition
to faciliate the proceedings, anil for
three days he refused tn say what he
wanted. He asked at the outset lhat
British Columbia's claim for extra
consideration be referred tn arbitration, but tn this the conference was
opposed,    The motion declining it was
carried unanimously, Premier McBride
only dissenting.
lu respect In this proposed refer*
erenee, Sir Wilifrld explained to the
Conference thut the view   nf   the  Do*
minion government was that tho conterence itself should determine ull
questions referred to it, but that if it
approved nf the proposed reference to
arbitration he would lie most happy
tn give the recommendation his last
consideration.
Premier McBride protested that
Hritish Columbia's claim was a question between him und the Dominion,
with which the conference had nothing to do, and it was during this debate that Premier Whitney referred
to Premier Mcliride ns being neither
fiank nor sincere in dealing with the
question, and finally moved that in
addition to all other grants British
Columbia be given $10d,000 a year
for ten years. When this "insult" of
a milllou dollars was offered to British

Specking nf the lumber industry in
the mountains, Geo. P. Wells, secre
tary of the Mountain Lumbermen's
association, made the following statement in Nelson recently: "At the
present time a large rninunt of capital, especially American, is look.ng
for investment towards British Col*
umbia. In many of the districts on
the other side the timber resources
are becoming exhausted and those
who have made their fortunes in this
way are now looking to British Cnl-
umbia as one of the few countries
which presents opportunities. While
there are still gond areas nf timber to
be acquired tliere is not, perhaps the
vast area of standing timber popularly
credited, and with the requirements nf
the country which is opening up at
our very doors in the Northwest there
is certainly nunc to much. I do not
mean to intimate that the timber resources in this province are to be
early exhausted, no matter if the
number of mill* in operation were
largely increased, yet what 1 do say is
that the market in tho Northwest is
increasing so rapidly and so insistent
are its demauds that it will take
many more mills in operation before
that market can be caught up with.
Taking the present season for example, with every mill operating to
its fullest capacity, there is not so
much lumber ou hand at the present
moment as tliere was at the beginning
of the sawing season. This means that
more than the output has been consumed during the best period uf pro* j
duction. yew that the winter is
coming nn many ut' the mills will have N'
to close and the reserve stuck must
undoubtedly bi* almost completely depleted before the spring. As the early
spring demand i.s generally large and
in view of the good conditions obtain
both ends, their present location survey being about nineteen miles distant up the Cnldwater river.

Spokane Men in B. C. Timber
Vancouver, Oct. 24.—Spokane
capital, which made so much money
out of British Columbia mines and
set Rossland on its feet, is now being invested largely in the timber
business of the Kootcnays. Hood
Bros., of Spokane, have paid $175,-
000 cash for 20 square miles of timber lands on Crazy creek, 10 miles
west of Revelstoke, on the main line
of the Canadian Pacific railway,
about 400 miles from Vancouver.
The 12,?00 acre limit belonged to
the Ragle River Lumber oompany,
and is considered one of the best
tracts of land on the Dominion government land best. The timber is
chielly cedar, of Bite quality, white
pine and fir. In the spring a big
mill is to he erected. The deal is
described as by far the most i in ports i it recorded iu Revelstoke district,
which is the lieiirt of one of the most
impoitant timber arena in Canada.
Another Spokane firm, Limlsley
Bros., have entered into an agreement to handle 835.CHX) worth of
telephone poles and railway ties
which .1. W. Power and James
Spiers have* contracted to take off
limits near Burton City, on the Columbia river, 65 miles due west of
Kaslo. The Spokane people make
a specialty of supplying the prairie
markets, which are very active now.
Work, under the terms of the contract, will be carried on till the end
of 1907. The timber is to lie taken
from limits aggregating several thousand acres, controlled by thu Americans. Sawlogs are to bo also handled for the Big Bend Lumber company of Arrowhead.

Some one inquires what tho differ-
c ce is between a ball toaser and a
barnstormer. That's easy—one is a
ball player anrl the other is a play
bawler. Mr. Sim Jimkins will now
render thai tnuohiii** Im lad entitled,
'Take Me Buck t<* Danville, Where
the Large potatoes grow."
This country is so full of minerals
that every time any one goes a fishing
they are sure to strike an ore body;
when Mollie comes home with
the cows there is always a golden glow
in her looks; prominent men are in-
varialy lbad here; ranchers are known
to liavi* uncovered from 18 up to a
lunula* I carets on their ranches this
fall; gold dust is the principal bait
used to catch gold fish in Smelter
lake; every opportunity that presents
itself is golden; the. councilman's
"con"-versation has a silvery vein of
a considerable depth; when he gets in
argument there is a lot of dust stirred
up; and last and best, The Sun is
ever a sparkling gem amid it all.
A case In West Arlchat
Mrs. A P Ferguson, a well known
Cape Bretoner, has cured asthma
by "Catarrhozone." Her statement
is oonvincing. "Althoug I was troubled for years it was only recently I
tried Catarrhozone. When an attack
started I got out iny inhaler and invariably gut quick relief. Feeling
satillied Chtarrhozone would cure, 1
■ontiiiuirl tin1 treatment till one bot-
lle wus finished. I didn't use more
because 1 wns cured and the asthma
has* never returned." Catarrhozone
is sure death to asthma and bronchitis. Try it and lie convinced. Two
sizes, 25c and •"fi, at all dealers.
