Most Enterprising Fruit Grower of tiie Valley Endorses Reciprocity
7ii the Editor, of The Sun.
In answer lo the article headed
"'Thf Issue Hefore the People," in
the Gazette of August ,i:
It does not look right to tiring on
the elections hefore redistribution, as
it dues not givet,he Wesl H luir representation with the Enst. And
when we take into consideration
that Manitoba, Alberta and Saskatchewan had a great deal to do
; wilh the steps the Laurier government took in the reciprocity deal, I
do not think it i« giving the West a
fair deal to deprive us ol ahout one-
third tbe represents tion we would
have had if the elections were postponed until after redistribution.
This does not Ictok to be good than-
aueuient ou Laurier's part, for 1 feel
tlure that reciprocity will get a
stronger support in the three above-
mentioned provinces than in any
other part of the Dominion. Why did
Lsurier yield to the Conservatives to
have the election sprung on tbe people before redistribution? The writer
saVs "some preliminary business in
the way of providing .money for the
administration would have taken a
couple of weeks; bnt they found this
could be dispensed with." This gives
a person an idea of how long our
representatives can spend over a
little thing, and how quickly they
can dispense witb it if is to further
their own ends.
The writer says "no doubt the
campaign will be tempestuous, but
there is no reason why it should not
he courteous." YeB, it will be
ciiurteous enough witb the interests)
but they are capable of stooping low
-enough to cry disloyalty and annexation in order to keep the masses
lighting until they accomplish their
work. How can we have a loyal
people and a dissatisfied people! If
tbe people want reciprocity they
should have it; and they will have
it they do tbeir own thinking
The interests that are raising
such a loud cry about loyalty know
that Canadians are loyal, and tbat
if tbey cun make the people belieye
that reciprocity will have a tendency
toward annexation tbey run a chance
of defeating reciprocity, whicb will
give them lour more years' control
over part ol the sweat of the laborers' and producers' brows.
There is no one who can dispute
but that the Canadians are loyal;
but if they have to labor much
longer under the pmsent restrictions,
combines and monopolies the interests will soon find put that they
are not so loyal. There is no reason
why Canadians should not be loyal.
We h.tye one of the richestcountries
under the sun; and Canada has
prospered even under restrictions,
and stolen privileges by the interests.
"Shall Canada enter into reciprocal trade with the United States or
not?" Well, Mr. Burrell quotes
President Taft's statement that we
are "al the parting of the ways."
1 agree with Mr. Taft. We are "at
the parting o{ the ways" It has
been the "ways" of the masses to
listen to the dictations of the bosses.
They are beginning to realize that
they were born with just as much
brains as tbe men who hold high
positions in governments, if they
only use them; and if there ever
waB aa time when the masses
should do their own thinking it is
now.
The elements opposing reciprocity
will  oot  be injured it the pact is
ralifi<*ds but they are afraid  that  il
will   lead   to  free trade, and not to
nnnexatiou, as they try to make the
people   believe.   They say it is
national obligation to   vote against
reciprocity.   It is not; but it ia an
obligation of all  bread  earners and
all   interested   in   bread   earners to
vote against tariff restrieiimis, whirl
encourage combines and inonopulii-i
that are   a detriment  to   all   bread
,        *.
producers.
They want to know if the in
creased prosperity which reciprocity
may bring to Canada will repay us
for becoming Americanized. Di
not think that a person making such
i state-iient is more liable to be dis
loyal than the person who is in fa
vor of reciprocity? He is certainly
not loyal to the laborer or the pro
lineal*) and who but these have made
Canada?
Tbey say reciprocity will obstruct
the financial fabric of our country.
I agree with them here. It will cer
lainly put more money in the poc
kets of the bread earners and less in
ihe pockets of the privileged class.
•Yes, we have great transcontinental
railways and great cities, iu wnich
great wealth haa accumulated in the
hands of the privileged class, which
is today being used to oppose reciprocity, and against the masses who
produced it.
Mr. Burrell says they did no
make any serious Attempt to meet
lhi_! demand of the Wesst for redis;
tribntion. It is quite .natural that
the Conservatives did not want re
distribution, before the election. But
wby could not Laurier have dropped
tbe reciprocity question and gone
on-with the business of the session!
We have lived under the restrictions
of the tariff for thirty years. Suiely
we could bave stood ita few months
longer, thereby giving the West a
fair representation in the bouse.
Now tbe West will have lo put up
wilh a governmeut for the next four
or five years with about one-third
less representation than we are en
titled. Would it not have been
more satisfactory to the people to
have had a chance to say yes or no
on recipsocityl If I want reciprocity
[ have to vote for the man tbe Lib
eral party brings out, aud all parly
men have got to—or are supposed
to—uphold what the party bosses
tell them. If tbey are not men of
this stamp they would not get the
job, or could nol hold it if they did
get it. Even supposing he is of the
rubber-stamp lype, I bave got to
vote for him. And if the government is sustained on this question,
tbe members will have practically a
free hand to do hs tbey please with
the affairs of the country for the
next four or live years. They can
build the Hudson Bay railway and
turn il over to Mackenzie & Maun,
instead of giving all railroads equal
running rights over it. It may be
tbe object of tbe bosses lo work it so
that the masses will bavu.as'little to
say as possible. What we want, in
my opinion, is the referendum on
nil important questions, and also
the recall. We want the natural resources protected for the benefit of,
Canadians, and not for seekers after!
special privileges. It is tbrough la-
bur out of the natural resources that
all wealth is created. Why should
we have a government tbat will allow private interests to get control
ofthe natural resources and use la-
boi to accumulate great wealth, j
whioh today is being used to work
'midships on the masses? Do we
iviint Canada to drift on to the conditions that today prevail in the
'United States, where a few men by
pulling tbeir heads together ean tie
up tbe linaneiiil affairs of the conn-
try and thereby cripple all industry!
I'nder the present conditions the
p»ople. have very little power to do
anything towards government reform. The present government is
much like a wheel. Tbey put in a
Conservative spoke bere and a Libera) spoke there, but the bub is all
one, and the axel is greased witb the
sweat off the laborer's brow. Now
you may take from my idea of
government affairs that I am ln favor of putting a stop to tbe present
condition of government all at once,
an impression thrown out by many
Socialists. But this is nol so, and it
is not real Socialism, either. No
lindy is to blame for existing eondi-
t ons but the people. Thi-y ha-e
listened to the smooth talk of the
polished politician instead of .doing
iheir own thinking. I think a lot
of people who talk so radically
against capital would be just tbe
same as the capitalist if tbey were
in the same position. If capital has
taken advantage of lahor, it is not
Socialistic principles for the laborer
to take advantage of capital if he
had the power to do so. But capital has taken edvautage of labor,
and if the masses do not get some
measure of relief at the polls, the
day is not far distant when they will
find some other way of obtaining it.
Now, reciprocity is the only iijsue
hefore the people in Ibis election
and I might want ever so badly to
vote for the Conservative candidate,
but I can't do il and say I wan'
reciprocity, when ii is the only issue
hefore the people. Wby could we
uot have a eliaoce to say yes or no
on reciprocity independent of party
politics? Oh, no; that would be
giving the people too much liberty
at the polls. I am sure if the majority of people said they wanted
reciprocity, how could Mr. Borden
refuse to grant it, supposing the
Laurier government was defeated.
Mr. Burrell thinks be has a strong
talking point against reciprocity in
regard to tbe fruit industry. I suppose I can be classed among the
largest individual fruit growers iu
British Columbia. If I can'l grow
fruit and compete with my neighbor across the line, I will do something else; and I am not a Canadian
of much use if 1 am not willing to
try to compete with him. Un the
otber hand, would it not be selfish
of me to waul to see conditions re
tuined whereby 1 can take advantage of my fellow-producer to the j
extent of 20 cents per  box   ou   up-
>les?   Bui this argument does not
bold good, for wn get better prices
for our fruit iu foreign markets, than
we gel in our home market. In thu
outside market we compete with lbe
world; in tbe home market we are
protected to the extent of 20 cent's
per box. That is a nice way to use
our home consumers] If Canada
was an importer of natural products
we would benefit tbe producer of
natural products by charging a duly
on tbe importations of tbe same, to
tho disadvantage of our consumers.
Now, when we are exporters of nut
ural products, is it not to our advantage to have all barriers removed
that tend to limit our markets)

Redistribution
The Montreal Slar is one of the
inosl ardent opponents of reciprocity. It is opposed to tbe government at all times, it is tbe mouthpiece of*the Conservative party, and
yet il makes this admission—that
the opposilion would rather force
an election before ledistribution because the more western members
tliere aie in the house the more supporters of reciprocity there will be.
I bis is what il says:
"The weakness of the West at
this moment is tbat lhe government

tbem anyway because of reciprocity,
wbile lbe opposition do not see wby
Ihey should try to get more votes
for a section which advertises its de
termination to use thein to keep lbe
opposition where it is."
Mr. Borden's trip wist did not inspire In in with the hope that he
might look for either sympathy or
support from lbe prairies, and this
accounts fur his determination to
lilock public business and prevent
di-tribution being provided lor before ao appeal to tbe country was
made. Borden is not anxiuUB for
increased western representation in
parliament.

(Continued.)
Vera listened, comprehending but
little of what was going on. Beyond
doubt, these men were doing something illicit with the coinage of the
country, though Vera, could not bring
herself to believe that they were
passing off counterfeit money, seeing
that the sovereigns were absolutely
genuine.
"Well, something has got to be
done," another of the gang remarked. "We are bound to have a few
thousands during the next few days,
and us Blossett says, there is nobody can work the oracle as well as
he can. The best thing I can do is
to go to town with him and keep a
close eye on him till he has pulled
round once more. He can keep
sober enough on occasions if he likes
and once the drinking fit has passed
he may be right for weeks."
"I am going te have no one with
me," Blossett roared. "Do you think
I am going to be treated like a blooming kid? I tell you, I am the best
man of the lot of you. There isn't
one of you can hold a candle to me.
Fenwick, with all his cunning, is a
child compared with Ned Blossett.
Ask any of the old gang In New York,
ask the blistering police, if you like.
And as to the rest of you, who are
you? A set of white faced mechanics
without pluck enough to rob a hen
roost.   Take that, you cur!"
The speaker rose suddenly to his
feet and lurched across the room in
Fenwick's direction. He aimed an
unexpected blow at the latter which
sent him headlong to the floor, and
immediately the whole room was a
scene of angry violence.
Vera shrank baek in her shelter,
hardly knowing what to do next.
She saw that Blossett had disengaged himself from the mob about
him and was making his way headlong into the conservatory. There
was nothing for it but instant retreat.
On the opposite side was a doorway
leading to the garden, and through
this Vera hastily slipped and darted
across the grass, conscious of the
noise and struggle going on behind.
She paused with a little cry ot vexation as she came close to a man
who was standing on the edge of the
lawn looking at the house. It was
only for a moment that she stood
there in doubt, then a glad cry broke
from her lips.
"Charles, she said. "Mr. Evors,
what are you doing here?"
"We will come to that presently,"
Evors replied. "Meanwhile you can
be observed from where you are,
and those rioters yonder may make
it awkward for you. When they have
patched up their quarrel, I will return to the house with you and explain. We can get in by the little
green door behind the gun room."
Vera suffered herself to led away
feeling now utterly unable to be astonished at anything. They came at
length to the secluded side of the
house, where the girl paused and
looked at Tier companion for an explanation.
"You seem to be strangely familiar
with this place," she said. "You
walk about here in the dark as if
you had known this house all your
life time. Have you been here before?"
"Many a time," Evors Teplied
sadly. "Up to the lime 1 was twenty
my happiest years were spent here.
But I see you are still in the dark.
Cannot you guess who I really am,
Vera? No? Then I will enlighten
you. My name is Charles Evors,

CHAPTER XXI.
Tha Third Finger
Vera ought te have experienced a
feeling of deepest surprise, hut she
was long past, any emotion of that
kind. On the contrary, it seemed
quite natural that Evors should be
there tilling her this extraordinary
thing. The sounds of strife and tumult in the house hnd now died away:
apparently the men iu the billiard
room had patched up their quarrel,
for nothing more could be heard save
a sudden pop which sounded like the
withdrawal of n cork. With a gesture
of contempt Evors pointed to the
billiard room window.
"I don't think you need worry
about them," he said. "As fur as
I can judge they were hound to come
to some truce."
"But do you know whnt they were
doing?" Vera asked.
"I haven't the remotest idea," Evors replied. "Some rascality, beyond
question. There is always rascality
wbere Fenwick is concerned, Is It
not strange that 1 should come down
here and And that fellow settled in
the home of my uncestors."
"Then you did not come down on
purpose to see him?"
"No, I came here entirely on my
own responsibility. If you have half
an hour to spnre, and you think it
quite safe, I will tell you everything.
to tell you," Evors went on. "It is
a strange story and one which, if
you read it in the pages of a book,
you would be inclined to discredit
entirely. And yet stranger things
happen every day."
livors led the way to a secluded
path beside the terrace.
"You need not worry about getting
to the house," he said. "1 can show
you how te manage that at any time
of the day or nignt without disturbing anybody. 1 am afraid that on
many occasions I put my knowledge
to an improper use and that was the
beginning of my downfall. What will
you say to me when I confess that
when 1 came out te Mexico I was
driven out of the old country, more
or less, like a criminal?"
"I understood you to be a little
wild," Vera said.
"A little wild;" Evors echoed bitterly. "1 behaved in a perfectly disgraceful fashion. I degraded the old
name, I made it a byword in the district. As sure as I am standing here
I am more or less responsible for my
mother's death. It is a strange thing
with us Evors that all the men begin
in this way. I suppose it is some
taint in our blood. Up to the age of
five and twenty, we have always been
more like devils than men, and tben,
for the most part, we have settled
down to wipe out the past and become respectable members of society.
I think my father recognized that,
though he was exceedingly hard and
stern with me. Finally, after one
more unusually disgraceful episode
he turned me out of the house, and
said he hoped never to look upon my
face again. I was deeply in debt, I
had not a penny that I could call my
own, and finally, I drifted out to
Mexico with the assistance of a boon
companion. On the way out I took
a solemn oath that I would do my
best to redeem the past. I felt heartily ashamed of my evil ways; and for
six months no one could possibly
have led a purer and better life than
myself. It was about this time that
I became acquainted with your fatlur
and your sister Beth."
Evors paused a moment and paced
up and down the avenue with Vera
by his side. She saw that he was
disturbed about something, so she
deemed it best not to interrupt him.
"It was like getting back to a better world again," Evors went on. "I
believed that I had conquered myself; I felt pretty sure of it, or I
would never have encouraged the
friendship with your sister, which
she offered me from the first. I don't
know how it was or why it was that
I did not see much of you ubout that
time, but you were not in the mountains with the others.''
"I was down in the city," Vera
explained. "There was a friend of
mine who had a long serious illness
and I was engaged in nursing her.
That is the reason."
"But it doesn't much matter," Evors went on. "You were not there
to watch my friendship for Beth ripening into a warmer and deeper feeling. Mind you, she had not the remotest idea who I really was, nor had
your father. They were quite content
to take me on trust, they had no
vulgar curiosity as to my past. And
then the time came when Beth discovered what my feelings were, and
I knew that she had given her heart
to me. I had not intended to speak,
I -had sternly schooled myself to
hold my tongue until I had completed my probation; but one never
knows how these things come about. It
was all so spontaneous, so unexpected—and before I knew what had
really happened, we were engaged.
It was the happiest time of my life.
I had rid myself of all my bad habits.
I was in the full flush and vigor of
my manhood. I did-not say anything
to lii-tli about the past, because I
felt that she would not understand,
hut I told ynur father pretty nearly
everything except who i really was,
for I hnd made up my mind not to
tnk" the old nnme ngnin until I hnd
really earned the right te do so. Of
course, the nnme of Evors conveyed
no Impression to anybody. It did not
Imply Hint I wns heir to Lord Merton. Your father wns intensely friend-
lv nnd sympathetic, he seemed to understand exactly. We became more
than friends, nnd this is how it
enme about that I accompanied him
finally on one of his secret visits to
the Four Finger Mine.   Your father's
kept Van Fort and Fenwick out pf
it, for I distrusted both these men,
and I believed they would have been
guilty of any crime to learn the secret of the mine. Your father, always trustful and confiding, laughed
at my fears, and we started on that
fateful journey. I don't want to harrow your feelings, or describe in detail how your father died; but he
was foully murdered, and the murder
was accomplished either by the
Dutchman or Fenwick, or between
the two of them. Zary mysteriously
vanished about the -same time, and
there was no one to back me up in
my story. You may judge of my horror and surprise a little later when
Van Fort and Fenwick entered into a
deliberate conspiracy to prove that I
was responsible for your father's
death. They laid their plans with
such a diabolical ingenuity that, had
I been placed upon my trial at that
time, I should have been hanged to
a certainty. They even went so far
as to tell Beth what had happened,
with what result upon her mind you
know. At this time Van Fort disappeared and wns never heard of
again. Of the strange weird ven.
geance which followed him I will
talk another time. I suppose I lost
my nerve utterly, for I became as
clay in the hands of Mark Fenwick.
Badly as be wns trenting me, he
professed to be my friend, and assured me he had found a way by
which I could escape from the death
which threatened me. Goodness only
knows what he bnd in hiB mind;
perhaps he wanted to part Beth and
myself and get all your father's
money into his hands. I suppose he
reckoned without your brother, although the latter did not count for
much just then, seeing that he was
in the hospital at Vera Cram., hovering between life and death as a result of his accident. For my own
part I never believed it was an accident at nil. I believed that Ten-
wick engineered the whole business.
But that is all by the way. Like the
weak fool that I was, 1 fell in with
Fenwick's suggestion and allowed
myself to become a veritable tool in
his hands, but I did not go till I
heard thst you had come back again
to look after Beth."
Vera recollected the time perfectly;
she was following Evors* narrative
with breathless interest. How well
she recollected the day of her own
marriage and the receipt of that
dreadful letter, which parted Gerald
and herself on the very steps of the
altar, and transformed her life from
one of happiness into one of absolute self-sacrifice. She was beginning to see daylight now, she was beginning to discern the way at length
by which she could defy Fenwick and
part with him/for all time.
"It is getting quite plain now,"
she said. "But please go on. You
cannot think how deeply I am interested: Presently I will tell you
my side of the story. How I came
to part with Beth, how I placed her
in my brother's hands, how I elected
to remain with Mark Fenwick, and
my reasons for so doing. I may say
that one of my principal reasons
for staying with my uncle was to
discover the real cause of my father's death. That you had anything
to do with it I never really believed,
though appearances were terribly
against you, and you deliberately
elected to make then look worse.
But we need not go into that now.
Whnt hnppened to you after you fled
from Mexico?"
I am very much afraid that I
dropped hack into the old habits,"
Evors said, contritely. "I wns reckless nnd desperate and cared nothing
for anybody. I nad honestly done
my best to atone for the past, and it
seemed to ine thnt Fate wns dealing
witli me with a cruelty which I did
not deserve. One or two of Fenwick's
parasites accompanied nie everywhere
there seemed to be no lack of mon-
ey and I had pretty well all I want-
id, There were times, of course, when
1 tried to break the spell, but they
used to drug me then, until my mind
began to give way under the strain.
Sometimes we were in PnriB, sometimes we were in London, but I have
not (he slightest recollection of how
I got from one place to another. I

Hew to Read tht Stent tn a Stt-Gelng
Officer.
It it tile to sty that of the tent cf
thousands who will witnest the Naval
Review on June 34th at Spithead very
few will be able to distinguish an admiral trom a commander, or an engineer-lieutenant from a fleet-paymaster; and yet to the initiated it is the
simplest thing in the world. One
glance at the sleeve of his coat is sufficient for the well-informed; tor, whereas the army officer carries tbe insignia
of his rank on his shoulder, the uaval
officer carries his in gold stripes extending round tbe sleeve.
Naval officers comprise the executive or military branch, and the emji-
Leering, medical, and accountant
branches. Whereas the executive officer is always recognized by tht uppermost snipe on his arm being extended
into a small circle of gold lace above
it. all the stripes of the other branches
go straight round the sleeve, aud in
addition have a distinctive colored
cloth between the stripes. Thus ths
engineer ollicer always has purple
cloth between the stripes, the medical
officer always lias red, aud the accountant otucer has white, so the observer can ut once see to what branch
an ollicer belongs.
As regards rank, the number ol
stripes will inform him. Two stripes
indicate a lieutenant, an engineer-
lieutenant, a surgeon, or a payuiastei
—always having regard to the gold
circle on the uppermost stupe lor
the lieutenant, or the purple, red oi
white clotn between the stripes, and
no circle, lor the other branches.
Three stripes, of which the middle one
is only hall tne thickness ol the othei
two, indicate a senior leutenant oi
sen.or engineer, a staff-surgeon, or a
.tail-paymaster; while three stripes
all of the same tnickness denote a
commander, a lleet-surgeon, or a fieet-
puyniasier.
A captain bas four stripes. Officer:

broau gold stripe nearest the cuff, aud
from one to four thinner gold stripei

Thnt was done solely out of gratitude, and Zary steadfastly declined
to benefit one penny from the gold

that the gold from the Four Finger
Mine had brought a curse on his

A bulldog should have a thovei

protruding upward, and a wide chest,
there are oue or two things to look
uut for in buying a dog. Some dealers

a member of the comm.ssiorf to settle
the northwest hall-breed claims. The
comparative immunity Irom troubles
with the Indians ol the northwest is
in no small measure due to the wisdom and tact of Mr. Forget. Besides
having a thorough knowledge of Indian ch-iracter obtained through years
of contact and acquaintance with the

being the first Lieutenant-Governor of
that province. There is no man in
Canada better informed regarding conditions in the west and his elevation

Tht Tragedy ef tht Rtbbll.
Judge Ptrry. whose play, "The Captain of the School." has been produced at the Gaiety Theatre, London, is
the only judge in the history of Great
Britain who has actually been shot in
his own court. Thit was in 1898, when
a disappointed bailiff, who was interested in a suit being tried, crept unobserved to the raised dais on which
Judge Parry sat,' and fired three revolver shots, wounding the judge in
the chin and the throat. The judge,
who has several plays to his credit,
has a keen sense of humor, and one
of tbe stories he tells relates te a woman who was summoned before him
for non-payment of rent. "Why don't
you pay the money?" he asked her.
"Last Friday week, when I waa cooking a rabbit " sbe began. "My good
woman," interrupted the judge, "never mind thc rabbit, but tell me why
you didn't pay the rent." "I'm telling
you," retorted the woman, "if you
will only let me. Last Friday week
I was cooking a rabbit, when the soot
fell down and spoiled lhe rabbit; and
do you think I was going te pay rent
for that week?"
On another occasion, during the
hearing of a esse hi Which a poor woman was concerned, Judge Parry announced thst tlie trv>l would have to
be adjourned. "Whnt does thst
mean?" asked the woman. "Put oil,''
r°n!icd th- ittoV. "Oh I When till?"
Till next Monday." "Oh, I can't come

That 'ud be much better than troubling me to come to this 'ere court."

RAPID GROWTH
Tht   Following   Flgurtt   Show   tht
Mtrvtllout Development of
Ctnada
Twenty-five years ago today the
first transcontinental train of the
Canadian Pacific Railway pulled out
frnm Montreal for the Pacific Coast.
It was a memorable occasion, marking tlie consummation of the greatest
work that Canada bad ever undertaken.
For a country with less than four
millions of people to build a railway
across the North American Continent
—the first, and still the only, actual
transcontinental line connecting the
two great oceans—was a remarkable
achievement whose importance was
accentuated by the fact that for many
hundreds of miles Its lines traversed
regions altogether unknown—where
men did not live—around the rock-
bound northern shores ot Lake Superior, across? the far western plains
then in utter solitude, and over Nature's majestic sky-scrapers in the
Canadian Rockies.
No less wonderful has been the
growth and expansion of Canada's
great national highway during the
intervening quarter of a century. The
company did not merely remain a
common carrier—it become more—a
developer and Empire builder—and
so potent a factor in filling the wants
of otbers aB well as the vast army
of travellers that both on land and
sea the C.P.R. today is a name to
conjure with. From comparatively
small beginnings, as' seen by twentieth century eyes, it has developed
into a world encircling institution
with magnificent fleets on ocean and
Inland waters—an immigration agency that has peopled half a continent, even to furnishing ready-made
homes to the home seekers—a forceful factor in the development of mines
snd mining—an inaugurator of huge
irrigation works where thousands are
employed in building its rolling
stock, has its own telegraph and express services that reach everywhere,
and a chain of palatial hotels to
comfortably house those who travel,
and it even employs Swiss guides to
pilot daring mountaineers to dizzy
heights and runs sanitariums and
summer resorts where the pleasure
seeker may holiday and the health
of the invalid be restored. Its record fully justifies the name happily
bestowed upon it by an eminent
European — "Providence Incorporated."
A few figures will give some idea
of the greatness of its growth:—
The total earnings in 1886 were a
little over $10,000,000, and the net
earnings less than $4,000,000, the surplus after deducting fixed charges being $653,444. This year's gross earnings will probably be over $104,000.-
000 and the net earnings about $37,-
000,000. The mileage then was 4,651
miles; today it Is, including controlled
linen, about 15,500 miles, The number of passengers then carried was
1,899,319 and the tons of freight aggregated 2,046,195. The approximate
figures for the past twelve months
are over 13,000,000 passengers, and
21,350,000 tons of freight. A comparison of the figures shows that a considerable reduction in the rates has
taken place .In 1886 the average
earnings per passenger per mile was
2.10 cents and freight, averaged 1.10
cents per ton per mile. Today the
figures are for passengers 1.93 cents
per mile and for freight 0.800 oents
per ton per mile. A comparison of
the equipment then and today shows
how the company has kept pace with
the requirements of the traffic:—
1886.       1911.
Locomotives    872       1.629
First and second class
passenger cars and
colonist and   baggage
cars    304       1,757
First-class sleeping and
dining  cars      47 311
Parlor, official and paymaster cars      27 63
Freight and cattle cars 8,523      50.863
Conductors vans    178 880
Boarding, tool and auxiliary cars     71       3,684
Still more marked is the increase in
the marine department. In 1886 the
CP.R. fleet consisted of two steamers on the Great Lakes. Today, it
has fleets on many waters. Its red
and white checkered house flag floats
over sixteen Atlantic liners, four
Pacific liners, twenty-two steamers
on the Pacific Coast service, five on
the Great Lakes service, twenty-two
on tbe inland waters of British Columbia, and two in the ferry service
on the Detroit river—a total of 71
vessels—and this number will be increased by the building of several
new steamships for the ocean service
and by the acquisition of the Dominion Atlantic railway and its
steamships.
There seems to be no finality to the
company's work. In addition to the
large original cost of the railway and
equipment hundreda of millions of
dollara hsve been expended on improvements such as double trscking,
reduction of grades, curves eliminated, replacing wooden bridges with
steel structures, erecting new stations
and enlarging old ones, etc., and the
policy of extending brairch lines
wherever needed is still being vigorously pursued.
In one way only has the* C.P.R. remained "as it was," and that is in
the retention of the services of officials and employees. It is practically manned today as it was a quarter of a century ago, with, of course,
tbe addition of many thousands required by the expansion of the road.
The total number employed now
reaches 80,000 and these are stationed
in almost every civilized country on
tbe face of the earth. There was no
pension fund in 1886, for none was
needed. Today there are over 500 of
the old faithful workers on the pension roll, none of whom receive less
than $20 a month—a positive contradiction of the proverbial saying that
corporations have no souls.
All this show that the Canadian
Pacific is, as stated, more than a
transportation company in the generally accepted sense of the term. It
is an Empire builder and Its name
will ever be remembered as the
creator of Western Canada and a
great developing factor wherever its
lines penetrate.

struggles of armies resulted in the

was indeed to the swift and the battle to tbe strong. The invention of

DR. CHASE'S OINTMENT
Aside from the suffering caused by
pimples, sores and skin eruptions,
there is the annoyance and embarrassment to which they give rise,
particularly when on the hands or
face.
It is quite proper to try to get the
blood right by use of internal treatment, but this is u tedious method
ut overcoming, the skin troubles,
which can so readily be gotten riil of
by using Dr. Chase's Ointment.
The three principal ingredients of
this great soothing, healing ointment
are the most potent known to the
medical profession us a means of
cleaning out sores and ulcers, destroy,
ing morbid growth, lessening the discharge, preventing . blood-poisoning
and stimulating the healing process.
Dr. Chase's Ointment stops itching
almost as soon as applied, und often
heals almost like magic.
The time required for cure depends
on the nature of the ailment hut, unlike internal treatment, the benefits
are apparent to the eye, and you can
note from day to day the improvement made.
The wonderful success of Dr.
Chase's Ointment in the cure of eczema, salt rheum, psoriasis and old
sores and wounds is sufficient proof
that it is bound to be satisfactory
in the treatment of the less severe

BEWARE OF THE BEEF TRUST.
Chicago   Mtat   Packers   Would   Like
Free Canadian Cattle and Extension of Their Monopoly
The injurious control of the United
States Beef Trust over this country
wouid be one of the most dangerous
outcomes of the reciprocity agreement if it should be adopted between
the States and Canada. Particularly!
would the results'of the Beef Trust
regime be dire to Western Canada.
The history of the Beef Trust in the
United States law courts shows that
"the big six" packing companies of
Chicago have almost entire control of
the producing regions of the Western
States.
The United States Beef Trust is
made up of the following firms: Armour & Co., Swift & Co., Morris &
Co., including the Fairbanks Canning
Co., the National Packing Company,
under the joint management of Armours, Swifts and Morris'; Swurz-
child & Sulzberger and Cudahy &
Co. Tbe main interests, "the big
six," as they are called, control 72
subsidiary packing companies, and
these 72 tentacles stretch over the
length and breadth of the United
States, feeding on the fat of the land
and crushing out life wherever it is
convenient.
Nearly every year the Bee'f Trust
is brought into court for breaking the
Sherman anti-trust aw. There is a
case in progress now in the District
Court at Chicago against the Beef
Trust for having been accused of being an illegal combination in. restraint
of trade. It is said the Beef Trust
knows no law. In previous esses evidence has shown that 98 per cent,
of all the cattle killed in leading
western centres were slaughtered by
the Trust, which it was also shown
controlled 75 per cent, of the meat
trade in New York, 85 per cent, in
Boston, 85 per cent, in Providence,
and in a number of other important
oities from 50 to 90 per cent.
In view of this indisputable evidence, it is not difficult to understand
the depleted condition of the rural
districts of the Eastern States. Note
that 95 per cent, of the raw supply
in the West is killed by the Trust,
which also controls from 50 to 95 per
cent, of the meat trade in the large
eastern cities. The Beef Trust has
thus robbed the Eastern farmer of his
rightful heritage, the home market
in the adjacent large industrial centres, The west and the East have
been bound together in the tight
grasp of two tentacles, which have
shot out greedily from the huge central body at Chicago. If but another
tentacle could be extended northward
and coiled around the producing regions of Canada, what rich blood
could be sucked into the heart of
this massive creature.
The Beef Trust exerts its enormous
control by getting hold of the railroads and then monopolizing sources
of raw supply. President Ripley, of
the Santa Fe Railroad, in 1905, hefore
the Insterstate Commerce Commission
said: "The packing house business
today is concentrated in so few hands
that this fact, together with the keen
competition between railroads, prac
tically makes it possible for them to
dictate rates for dressed beef and
packing house products." The Beef
Trust each day ships out of Chicago
600 cars of packing house products.
Armours alone control over a dozen
car lines; tbey own over 14,000 refrigerator cars representing an investment of $14,000,000 and the owners of these cars besides enjoying
special rates, also draw a rental from
the railroads for every one of these
cars than run over their lines. Swift
& Co. for the fiscal year ending
January, 1909, did $240,000,000 worth
of business. The largest Canadian
packing house does a business of
ahout $5,000,000 a year. Put both
concerns on a free nlarket; would it
be a fair deal?
Dressed meats and meat products of
different kinds came into Canada
from the United States last year,
ending March, 1911, to the extent of
over $3,000,000. The great proportion
of these imports came from the Beef
Trust and in face of the duties. Re.
duce the tariff on packing house products, as Reciprocity proposes to do,
and give the Beef Trust free access
to our natural products, and you
simply perpetuate and aid n gross i
evil as well as imperil the hest interests ol Canada.

FRIDA\, AUGUST 18,   1911
Modesty is not one of the virtues
of the Conservative party. Some
of the Tories in this city are- making
the biiizen cluim that Martin Burrell obtained the grant for our nen
postoffice. Mr. Burrell had no more
to do with securing the appropia-
tion than the Sultan of Sulu. Thai
part of the work .was performed bv
uur former Liberal memher, Duncan. The only connection Mr Bur
rell has had with matter was an attempt tu have the locatiun of the
building changed to another section
of the city; but he did not have suf
ficient influence with the govern
tnent tu carry the scheme through.
It is fortunate that he failed, because
if he hnd succeeded the work would
have been hung up indefinitely.
The only issue in this campaign
is reciprocity. The Tory papers
nre floundering all around the subject like a fish out uf thejvater.
They never get within speaking dis-
tince of the real' question, because
ihey knuw the people are overwhelmingly in favor of a larger
market and a lower cost uf living.
Some of them are yet harping on
the annexation bogey. The man
whu believes' that reciprocity will
bring annexation needs a better
drainage system for hiB hend,
in urder to draw of! snme of the stagnant water un his brnin. Others
have descended tu personsl abuse uf
Sir Wilfrid Laurier. Fur this class
of scribblers we hnve nothing but
contempt. They are not worthy
tu black the prime minister's boots.
Sir Wilfrid is the most eminent
statesman nn the American conti
nent today. He hus mnde a prosperous mil inn uut nf Canada, and
ia now endeavoring tn perpetuate
the prosperity which tbe people are
enjoying. To hint at disloyalty, or
to make sport of lucks thnt have
grown grey in the public service, as
snme nf the mure thoughtless Tory
editors are now doing, sounds almost like treason to Canada—and
treason to C'annda must be teusun
to Kngland. •
In this issue of The Sun the department nf the naval service is advertising the civil service examine
tons fnr tbo entry nf nnviil i-nilets
into the nnvnl Service of ('uiia.dii.
This is one of the advantages of Sir
Wilfrid Laurier's naval pulley which
Martin Burrill voted against.

The fiwiple of Canada will show Mr.
Borden that when he says they cannot prosper mid remain loyal, he
strikes another false note. '.
Every day brings new evidence of
the desperation displayed in the efforts of the opposition to keep the
Conservative party in line and every
day brings its news of^the cracking of
old pnrty affiliations. The producers
who have exports to sfell refuse to believe that their prosperity could wreck
their loyalty, while the consumers
who must buy cannot see how the
saving of dollars can make them less
truly British. No efforts ai the hysterical press or eloquence of specious
orator can blind them to tbeir pei-
sonal interests.

Liberal Nominee
(Concluded'from Patie Four.)
S. Wiwle uf Kamloppn Vigorous tlitht-
ing speeches were mude by each of
the canalirfates, which were enthusi-
astieally received and applauded, and
by the time t.he papers were
distributed the convention had reached a high pitch. When the ballots
were counted Dr.McDonald was found
to have received a majority vote, and
on motion of Dr. Wa-le and A. D.
Macintyre the nomination wa« made
unanimous. The scene that followed
was indescribable. Cheers almost
raised the roof, and the successful candidate was carried shoulder high to
the platform.
In acknowleding and accepting the
nomination Dr. McDonald promised
to put up such a vigorous fight as
would put his opponents to route.
Yale-Cariboo is a large di trict tp
cOver, but from maw until polling day
every moment of his time will be
given to the campaign.
The following resolutions were
adopted by the convention:
"The Liberal of Yale Cariboo in
convention assemhled place on record
their unswerving loyalty to Kt. Hon.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier and his government, and their appreciation of the
stand taken by Sir Wilfrid Liiurier at
the imperial conference as representing Canadian sentiment."
"This convention endorses the poll
cy of tne Liberal party as embodied
in the legislatiam pass,-d siuce its advent to power, particularly its naval
policy and the proposed reciprocal
trade agreement with the United
States carries out the time-honored
Liberal principle of the greatest good
to the greatest number."
"This convention recognizes the
able and efficient work done by H. fi,
Brewster, ML. A., in the provincial
legislature."
It was'tleciiled, inasmuch as a redistribution ael will be passed before
another election and Yale-Cur Ixio
will then lie divided, to leave the
place of the next convention to the
Yale-Cariboo executive.

A Quarter of a Million People
are Making Money with
THE
turns from fanning was the lack of
untaxed markets. Now that a mar
ket of 90,000,000 people is to be
opened to the products of Canada,free
and unobstructed bv customs taxation, the agriculturists,of Canada are
full of hop'e. When the farmer prospers the whole couutry prospers; when
the farmer languishes industries aud
commerce languish. _. Shall these wide
markets be opened or kept closed?
You will have your say on September 21. '
There seems to be no longer any
doubt that that the people of Canada
have awakened to the fact that the
elections on September lil will be
"People's Day." The real question
which the day will decide is whether
we are to maintain a political policy
which limits,the market of the wheat
grower on the prairies aud the grower
of hay and other farm products, the
natural market for which is in the

GIN PILLS Cure Them
Age is no barrier to the wonderful
soothing, healing properties of GIN
PILLS, the great Canadian Kidney
Cure. We have on record many letters from men and women of 60, 65,
70, 75, 80 and over testifying to the
great relief they received from taking GIN PILLS.
Mi. Samuel Martin, of Strathrpy,
Ont., suffered for twenty years with
misery in his back. Some months
ago, he tried GIN PILLS and after
taking only three boxes, was entirely
cured. Mr. Martin is now 85 years
of age and enjoys the robust health
of a vigorous man of sixty, thanks
to GIN PILLS.
All elderly people are troubled,
more or less, with Kidney and Bladder trouble, arid pain and weakness
in the back. GIN PILLS are a guaranteed cure for all these misfortunes.
Money promptly refunded if they
fail to give complete satisfaction.

DEADLY
ANAEMIA
Casts a Shadow   Over   the   Livee of
Thousands of Women and.
Growing Girls
"Not enough blood" is the simple
meaning of the term anaemia, though
it should scarcely need explaining,
for, unfortunately, anaemia is one of
the greatest evils in this country,
afflicting women of all ages, including young girls. The signs of blood-
lessness are plain enough—pallid lips
and cheeks, and aching back, frequent headaches, with breathlessness,
heart palpitation and great weakness
The only effective treatment is to
strengthen and build up the blood,
and it is just by this power of making
new, rich blood that Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills have cured anaemia in
more cases than it is possible to place
on record. Among the host cured ol this
trouble by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
is Miss C. N. Roberge, or Sorel, Que.,
who had been in poor health for several years. Miss Roberge says: "I
believe that if I had not taken Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills my illness would
have proved fatal. The trouble came
on so gradually that I can scarcely
tell the point at which it did begin.
The first noticeable symptom was loss
of color and a feeling of lassitude.
Then I began to lose my appetite, had
frequent headaches, and spells of dizziness, and became unable to do any
housework without being completely
exhausted. Finally my trouble became aggravated by a persistent
cough. I took several kinds of medicine, but did not get any relief. At
last I was advised to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills and decided to do
so. After I had taken several boxes
there was a noticeable improvement
in my condition and I continued using tlie Pills until 1 had taken nine
boxes. The result in my opinion was
marvellous. My appetite returned,
my nerves were strengthened, my
weight increased, headaches disappeared,- and 1 am enjoying the best
health of my life. In gratitude for
what Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have
done for me 1 give this stotement in
the hope that it may bring new
health to some other sufferer."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cure all
tho«e troubles due to poor blood,
such as anaemia, indigestion, rheumatism, neuralgia, St. Vitus dance,
partial paralysis, and the troubles
which attack girls budding into womanhood and women of mature
years. Sold hy medicine dealers
everywhere, or by mail at 60. cents a
box or six hoxes for $2.50 from The
Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., Brockville, Ont.
Some Acting
"What makes you -think you can
act?" asked the manager to the stage-
struck applicant.
"Burglars came into my room last
night," replied the young man. "I

them utterly."—Pearson's.
Digby, N.S.
Minard's Liniment Co., Limited.
Gentlemen,—Last August my horse
was badly cut in eleven places by a
barbed wire fence. Three of the cuts
(small ones), healed soon, but the
others became foul and rotten, and
though I tried many kinds of medicine they had no beneficial result.
At last a doctor advised me to use
MINARD'S LINIMENT and in four
weeks' time every sore was healed
and the hair has grown over each one
in fine condition. The Liniment is
certainly wonderful in its working.

. The Koyal Lilliputian Opera com
pany will play here Wednesday and
Thursday, August '23 and 24, nnd
will present "Sun Toy," one of the
best comic operas since tbe "Mikado," at the opera house. Canadian
audiences find much comedy in the
performances of the thirty clever
youngsters that constitute the Royal
Lilliputian Opera company. "San
Toy" is a particularly effective
comic opera, and in tbe -hands oil
this organization it is an entertainment of a superior nature. Madam
Simpson Hogg occupies the position
in Australia once held hy the Pollard family. She makes a specialty
uf discovering and training talented
youngsters. Among tbe thirty boys
aud girls in the Royal Lilliputian
Opera company tbere are some balf
dozen destined to become famtius.
Baby Grace, a tiny tot of four and
one-half years, is believed to be the
equal of Daphne Pollard, the star of
tbe Pollard Opera company. The
title role in "San Toy" is entrusted
to Pearl Carlyle, a young miss possessing beauty of face and form, aud
a Boprano voice noted for ita birdlike quality. It one can judge from
the many excellent newspaper notices received, the Royal Lilliputian
Opera company is an organization
deserving of splendid patronage.

looked upon on tbis side of the line,
itis possible Ihey would feel somewhat relieved. In fact, we believe
we can gel along better without reci
