The Dominion Better Known
Abroad Than at Any Period
in History
The week last past will prove a
memorable one for Canada. It
saw the conclusion of the colonial conference in London, at which Canada's
gifted premier, Sir Wilfrid Laurier,
was honored upon every occasion, and
who so ably represented Great Britain's greatest colony and upheld the
best of Canada's traditions.
It saw the first step accomplished
towards the establishment of a new
fast mail service between England,
Australia and New Zealand via Canada.
It gave to the country the latest
information with respect to the cost
and route of that great national undertaking, the Georgian Bay canal,
of which Sir Wilfrid Laurier is on
record as saynig, "It shall be built.
It saw the publication of figures
which prove that the trade of Canada
has increased by the enormous sum of
.$92,128,995 during the past year.
It permitted the finance department
to announce that the fiscal returns for
the year last past would show a surplus of $18,000,000 after paying off
nearly $10,000,000 of the public debt.
It welcomed the announcement by
the premier, that the home government
should seriously consider the injustice
to Canadian interests by reason of the
cattle embargo which obtained in England againet the Canadian cattle and
the response by Mr. Asquith, chancellor of th) exchequer, that the question should be seriously considered by
the board of agriculture.
It saw Ottawa flooded with railway
men, contractors and others, interested
in the building of the Grand Trunk
Pacific, submitting for the approval of
the government, various routes for this
,ind kindred enterprises, all of which
tends to the upbuilding tf Canada.
It found Hon. Mr. Brodeur, minister of marine and fisheries, explaining
to the committee of Llyds at London
the Hplendid harbor facilities which
the governinene was providing
throughout Canada. Mr. Biodeur fully
described what had been done to en
sure safe navigation, and ulluded to
the extensive works carried on by
government towards derfecting the
St. Lawrence route, by lighthouses,
givs buoys, fog alarm stations, wireless
telegraphy, telephone and signal service, wreaking plants and submarine
signals. He referred also to the regular inspection and annual sweeping
uf the channel.
It saw general contentment, honest
administration of public affairs, a con
dition of prosperity which makes of
Canada the most desirable field of immigration, and immigrants arriving
by the thousands.
It saw the settlement of the most
distressing of the industrial disputes
between employer and employed,and a
disposition to obey the law with respect to the lesser differences which
have arisen in some localties.
The trade and commerce  depart-
last, ^612,581,351, as against $520,-
452,356 for the corresponding period
of 1905-6, an increase of $92,128,995.
The imports consisted of dutiable
goods, $200,901,500; freegoods,#129,-
868,781; coin and bullion,f9,604,464,
making a total of $340,374,745. The
duty collected during the year
amounted to $53,006,546, as against
#45,129,009, an increase of $7,877,-
637.
In one year the trade of the country has increased by $92,128,995. In
other words it means that the total
trade of Canada has nearly doubled in
five years. When the Liberal party
pledged itself to promote the interests
of the people at the last general election it would have been almost too
much to promise that the trade of the
country would increase nearly $200,-
000,000 in two years, yet such has
been the case.
It may be asked, what is the proposed fast mail service, and how will
it benefit Canaaal
The proposal is divided into two
parts, one affecting the Atlantic ocean
and the other the Pacific ocean. It iB
contemplated to inaugurate a fast
mail and freight service between England, Australia and New Zealand via
Canada. On the Atlantic side the
service will equal the existing service
to New York. This would save two
days between England and Canada.
Four days at sea, four dayB across Canada. Eight days to the Pacific coast
from England.
On the Pacific side the object is to
establish at least an 18-knot service
to Australio, which would bring the
antipodes within twenty days of England, and greatly lessen also the time
to the Orient.
The promoters of this proposed new
line, in which Lord Strathcona has
promised to take a heavy financial in
terest, have received assurances from
the British, Canadian, Australian and
New Zealand governments of an an
nual subsidy of $5,000,000 per annum
for ten years.
The completion of this fast line
will make Canada the highway for
large proportion of the trade which
now reaches Australia and New Zea
land from the mother land by way of
the Suez canal. The impetus given ti
the business of the Doinijiion hy in
creased trallic across the continent is
beyond computation.
A feature of this fust line to the antipodes, and easier access to the Orient, will open up new trade channels
impossible under present conditions,
The benefits will extend far beyond
those which enure by reason of tie
transient freight. Canada will be
better known and her goods will find
their way to the uttermost parts of the
earth. If Sir Wilfrid Lanrier aeconi
pliahed nothing more than this at the
conference, he succeeded in advancing
the material interests of the people to
a degree which cannot be calculated at
this time.
The building of the Georgian Bay
canal has been a vexed political question for fifty years. The Liberal government hos been systematically making surveys end acquiring information
which would tend to a final solution
of all the problems  presented   in a

Kills Her Sister, Emma
Missile Strikes a Vital Spot
and Victim Expires in a
Few Seconds
A lamentable accident occurred
at the home of H. Donan, who lives
near the old Columbia Bchool house,
at about 9 o'clock yesterday morning. His two daughters, Bella
and Emma, aged 27 and 23 years
respectively, became engaged in a
disagreement over a trivial matter,
and Bella picked up a stick of wood
and hurled it at her siBter. Tbe
missile happened to strike Emma
just back of the ear, tbe most vital
spot in the entire body, and after
giving a few gasps she expired.
The accident proved a terribly
shock to Bella, and she was frantic
with grief all day yesterday. She is
still under Dr. Kingston care, and
the doctor expresses grave fears that
the incident may unbalance her
mind.
The Donan family are pioneeis
of Grand Forks, having resided here
seven or eight years.
LaBt night Coroner Kingston sum
moned a coroner's jury composed of
Robert Gaw, J. S. Jost, N. D. Mcintosh, D. D. Munro, N. McCallum,
Jas. McArdle, and an inquest was
held over tbe remains of the dead
girl. After hearing the facte, the
jury returned a verdict "that Emma
Donan, on May 30th, came to her
death as a result from a blow from
a stick thrown by her sister, Bella
Donan, without intent to kill."
The date of the funeral of the
dead girl has not yet been decided
upon, as some relatives of the family have been notified of tbe accident,
and it is not certain when they can
reach here.

Racing, Baseball and Athletic Sports
The Granby smelter resumed operations last Tuesday morning by
blowing in two furnaces, and two
more were started up Wednesday
morning. It is expected that another will be blown in today, making a total of five in blast.
At a meeting of the Grand Forks
Labor union Wednesday night the
new scale of wages submitted by
Superintendent Hodges, of tbe
Granby Consolidated, was rejected,
and Mr. Hodges left for Spokane
yestesday morning to confer with
Manager Jay P. Graves. He is expected to return' tomoorow, and it
will then be known whether the
company will accede to the demands
of the men or close down the smeller. The officers of the union state
that the points in dispute are not of
serious nature, and they feel confident of an amicable settlement.
They also say that they have tho
support of Phoenix and Greenwood
unions in their demands.
A race meet is to be held in this
city on the 1st of July (Dominion
Lay) under the auspices of tbe
Grand Forks Driving Park and Athletic association. The directors arrived at this conclusion last night,
and are now engaged in preparing
an attractive program. Besides
horse racing, a baseball tournment
and otber athletic sports will be included in the program. Liberal
purses are to hung up for all the
evente.

from telling funny Btorses.

TOPICS OF THE TOWN
Last week The Sun advertised the
premier of British Columbia as lost.
The next day word came from Paris
to the effect that he had been seen
in that city. Obviously, it pays to
advertise—even if you do not want
to recover the article you are advertising for.
Last spring we tried the experiment of grafting a strawberry plant
on a milkweed, with the expectation
of raising strawberries and cream
on one plant. The result has not
been entirely satisfactory, as we find
that the plant produces more cream
than berries.

A farewell social will he tendeiel
Kev. and Mrs. E. Manuel on Monday evening, June 3rd, at 8 o'clock,
in the Methodist church. All friends
are cordially invited to attend.
Travel to Franklin camp has been
quite brisk during ihe past week.
Last Tuesday the stage took up nine
passengers, besides all the express
matter it could conveniently handle.
This week the Kettle Valley line
started work on the trestle where it
crosses the C. P. R. near Lequime's
sawmill. The former road makes an
underneath crossing at this point,
and is therefore compelled to put in
the trestle for the CP.R.
Mrs. G. L. Woodard left yesterday morning for Grrfield, Wash.,
having received word that her
mother was quite seriously ill at
that place.
A. D. McPhee, superintendent of
the Grant mine, near Chesaw, visited his family in thiB city last Friday.
Mr. and Mrs. Jas. H. Kennedy, of
Midway, were guests at the Yale laBt
Sunday.
Mrs. John Rogers returned home
the first part of the week from a
visit with friends in Spokane.
In our laBt issue, a wireless message from the race course became entangled with telephone wires,
the result being that] we credited the Grand Forks club with wining the first baseball game, whereas
later reports show beyond the shadow of a doubt that they went down
before the Danville dandies. The
Danville boys were in turn trouncid
by tho Curlew team. The error wns
partly due to our eagorness to catch
the fast Franklin mail.
G. C. Hodge, of Nelson, superintendent of the B. C. Telephone company, was in the city last Monday
on a tour of inspection.
Tho Club saloon, owned by L. A.
Manly and A. M. Dunham, was sold
last Monday, the purchasers being
Al. Traunweiser, A. W. Fraser,John
Temple and Fred Russell. The
buyers will divide the stock and
close the place permanently on the
1st of June, thus reducing the
liquor licenses in the city by one.
Messrs. Dunham & Co. will celebrate their retiring from business
by serving a grand free lunch tonight. The doors will close for
good at 6 o'clook tomorrow morning.
The plans for the Kettle Valley
line station, which is to be erected
on Third street, between Winnipeg
avenue and Bridge Btreet, have been
completed, and it is to built at
once. Chief Engineer Warrington
stated last Saturday that work on
the building would be started this
week, but owing to some delay in
letting the contract, it is not now
likely that the ground will be broken
until some time next week. The
building will be 25x85 feet, one
story high, and will contain two
waiting rooms, baggage room and
offices. It will be of a rustic design,
a portion of the walls being constructed of panels and shingle work,
making a very pretty exterior appearance.
The station will be built by local
contractors, and the contract will be
awarded tomorrow or next Monday.
D. D. Munro made a business trip
to Nelson last Saturday.

NewAccruntof Western Canda
Lord Strathcona has written the
introduction for a new book describing the prairie provinces ni the Dominion under the title of "New Canada and the New Canadians," which is
to be published almost immediately
by Horace Marshall k Son, London.
The author, Mr. Howard Angus Kennedy, is well known in tho Dominion
as the originator and editor of "The
Story of the Empire" series of histori
cal volumes,in which he himself wrote
'The Story of Ganada." His knowledge of Canada and the West is by no
means second-hand; nor is he a mere
globe-trotter passing judgment on a
country that he has only had a glimpse
of. He came to Canada as long ago
as 1881, and lived here nearly ten
years. He first travelled through the
West in 1885, accompanying different
parties of the troops engaged   in  sup
pressing the half-breed and Idian rising. He was then acting as war correspondent of the Montreal Daily
Witness. After an interval of more
than 20 years he has been going over
the same ground, and much more, as
special correspondent uf the London
Times, with which famous journal he
has been connected since his retui n toi
England. He has thus been able to
draw a very striking contrast between
past and present in the West, as Lord
Strathcona says in vouching for Mr.
Kennedy's competence for his task.
Almost every part of the West is
touched on in this book—Manitoba,
the park lands as far us Prince Albert
and Edmonton, the plains of southern
and central Saskatchewan, the ranching country in the Southwest, the far
North, and the "West beyond the
West"; Galicittiis. livlundei's, Dukho-
bors, Mormons, Indians, and the more
ordinary ''new Canadians" from eastern Canada, the mother country and
the United States—all these and others are the subject of special notice.
Mr. Kennedy aims at giving not only
a true and independent account of the
country and its development and its
people, but a good deal of information
likely to be useful to emigrants. Independent as he is, he is an enthusiastic
believer iu Canada, and his book is to
be one which the people here can recommend their friends in the old country and the United States to read.
The volume is to be well illustrated
with colored and other pictures, including some taken by the
author as he travelled over the country
on cowcatchers, cayuses, bronchos and
other methods of conveyance.
Don't Use Greasy Liniments
A century ago they were popular.
Today people want something easy to
apply, certain in results, and above all
a clean liniment. When Nerviline is
applied aches and pains disappear as
the pores absorb its soothing healing
properties. Nerviline penetrates to the
core of the pain, eases instantly, and
leaves no oily bad smelling memory
behind. Good to take in, capital to
rub on, and five times more powerful
in destroying pain than any other
liniment. Don't fail to get a large 25c
bottle.

so busy examining them that she forgot to describe the lovely gowns
worn by the ladies, thus rendering

5MI MAKING KISTORY
(Concluded from Page One)
scheme  of such   magnitude  as the
building of this canal.
The report of the Georgian Bay
canal commissioners will be presented
to the house next session. It will contain full detailed particulars as to the
completed cost of the entire waterway
—460 miles in length. Nearly $600,-
000 have been expended in securing
for the first time full and accurate
data with respect tn the cost of the
great project.
The total cost of the canal, it is estimated, will reach S 105,000,000.
The report will deal not only with the
estimated cost, but will explain the
engineering problems to be encountered in the construction. The figures cover a route from the
Georgian bay to Montreal, via the
French river, Lake Nipissing and the
Ottawa river.
The report will show that the plan
is quite feasible, the only point to bo
decided is as to whether the expected
result will justify such an expenditure
of public money. It is expected that
the canal will have a continuous depth
of 21 feet during the period of navigation. Sir Wilfrid Laurier while in
England recently expressed himself as
in favor of the construction of this
canal.
The government has taken steps to
test the feasibility of a railway from
Saskatchewan to Fort Churchill on
Hudson bay. An exploration has been
made of the entire route, and information secured showing that sugh a railway would not be a very expensive
undertaking, and that at small cost
the harbor of Churchill can be kept
open all the year. The government
has already expressed the opinion that
such a railway would relieve the congested condition of traffic inthe Noi th-
west, and has also favorably received
the suggestion of Notthwest members
to assist such an undertaking.
Since his futile attempt to explain
away his taking of commissions and
participating in the profits from trust
funds, Mr. Foster has been very quiet.
After the house listened to his special
pleading for hours and Mr. Aylesworth had effectually disposed of the
specious defense offered, this heretofore verbose politician took little
part in the debates of the house. With
his natural astuteness Mr. Foster was
an adept at presenting the worst side
of a case in a manner that might be
regarded as logical if one were not acquainted with the facts. But this cannot be done now the insurance disclosures have occurred,
Whatever right Mr. Foster may
have had to criticise what he may regard as wrong acts of the government
he has forfeited by his handling (to
his own advantage and that of his
party friends) of the trust funds of
the Independent Order of Foresters.
His silence since the memorable occasion of Hon. Mr. Aylesworth's speech
is more eloquent than words.
It will be remembered that previous
to the close of the session of 1 !)05 M r.
Foster announced his intention of delivering a stinging criticism of the
government extravagance—in fact, he
gave notice that ho intciitcd to address himself to the question of excessive public expenditures. What happened! The government passed the
pension bill, giving to ex-cabinet ministers a sum of 83500 per annum,
What did Mr. Foster do? Did he
say, I cannot accept this monoy; I wa»
paid a good - salary while minister of
tho crown, and I am able to earn a
guild salary in addition to my indemnity of $2500 as member of parliament!
No. He did none of these things;
neither did he say the public onpendi-
tures should not be increased to this
extent. What he did do was to accept the money, and drop hia contemplated protest against excessive public
expenditures. Mr. Foster is only running smoothly. Bye-elections have
human   and  he took the money and failed to indicate   tiiat   public   i-onfl-
the announced criticism failed to materialize.
Hon. Mr. Paterson, minister of customs, delivered one of his old-time
whirlwind speeches in Toronto last
week. This grizzled platform war-
horse of the Liberal party so bombarded the Conservatives} with "prosperity figures" that no man was found
with the courage to toe the mark and
say a word in reply. There is every
reason to believe that at the next general election the Liberals will have a
fair representation from the city of
Toronto.
The minister of the interior lias
gone West in the interests of the great
depirtment he represents. Since Mr.
Oliver assumed office the affairs of the
interior department have proceeded
smoothly, and no scandal has attached
to the minister or any member of his
staff. Everything is conducted
fair business-like basis. Immigration
has increased to a marvellous extent,
and to meet the demands of the home
seekers, Mr. Oliver has arranged for
the survey of 10,000,000 acres of
agricultural land in the Northwest to
meet the growing necessities of the
settlers.
Hon. Mr. Lemieux, minister of labor, has notified the longshoremen at
Montreal that they must return to
work pending an investigation of their
differences with the shipping men.
The conciliation bill was intended to
meet just such cases as this. Pending
investigation men cannot bedischarged
or locked out, and neither can they, by
concerted action leave their work.
With this record of fair dealing in
cases of this kind, there is no reason to
believe but that the present difficulty
in Montreal will be amicably settled.
There is a settlement on Fort Vermillion on the Peace river, 700 miles
north of Edmonton. This is the most
northerly point in Canada at which
agriculture is pursued us a regular occupation. This fort is the distributing point for an area 600 miles in
length by 200 in width. The region
is very fertile, harvests of wheat, oats,
and other cereals are constant and
good. They are said to equal in quality and quantity the harvests per acre
of Manitoba or Saskatchewan.
The warm currents from the Pacific
cross the mountain and find their way
down the mountain passes and maintain a fairly even temperature. The
district is said to be rich in mineral,
but so far fhe pursuits have been agricultural.
That this territory has been opened
up and made available to the settler is
the direct result of government investigation and advertising. A few years
ago the Peace river was regarded as a
"terror incognito," but with accurate
information came a better understanding of climatic conditions, with the result that this magnificent area has
been added to the many assets Canada
yet possesses in what was ignorantly
described for many years as "the great
lone land."
A few months ago one heard many
statements supposed to be based upon
good authority, that the Conservatives
were jubilant at the prospect of an
early general election. Such things unheard no more. An election today
would find few of the present occupants ofthe t'liiisermiive benches returned to parliament, There is very
little said no* in the direction of expressing this hope. The Conservatives
know that an appeal to the country
would be a decisive verdict favorable
to the Liberal party, and they are uot
anxious for a trial of strength.
The time to change a govei nment is
when it has misconducted itself,proved
false to preelection pledges, and incapable of administering the affairs of
the country to the advantage of the
citizens. Such charges cannot be mode
against the Liberal government. A
man is known by his works, so is a
government. A long period of commercial prosperity proyes that the political   machinery   of   the country is
dence has been withdrawn; in fact, the
constituency of Nortn Bruce, formerly
Conservative, returned a Liberal a few
months   ago  at a bye-election,
