Victoria, Dec. 1—The most
significant triumph ever
achieved by any portion of the
British empire fruit exhibits
at the great show ofthe Royal
Horticultural society in London have this year been scored
by British Columbia, attested
by the award to this province
of the large gold Hogg memorial medal for its general
display under the control and
direction of Commissioner E.
Bullock-Webste. The present is the first occasion on
which any display of the
greatest of the old country
truit fairs has been adjudged
worthy to command this significant trophy, emblematic of
superlative excellenco. lij addition to vatious districts of
British Columbia represented
by characteristic exhibits at
the Royal Horticultural society's exhibition have been
well to the front in the capture of medals and awards of
minor significance, the long
list of victories being succinctly reported in a telegram received yesterday by Premier
McBride, and sent conjointly
by Hon. Price Ellison, minister of finance and agriculture,
who is at present in London,
and J. H. Turner, the provincial agent general. The message, between the lines of
which may be read the justifiable pride of both the minister and the agent general in
tlie land of their adoption,
reads as lollows:

Tlte supper Ml Jingled noisily from
tbe front porch, where Ellen uwalted
bis coming. Me wns quick to catch
tbe note of Impatience in Its brazen
tongue nnd hastened toward tbe house.
As he entered the kitchen his wife
passed Into the dining room and sat
down ut the table.
It wus n silent uienl. as had been all
the meals In thut house since the mortgage had rested thereon. At lust Hiram pushed his plate aside and arose.
"I'm going down to the postoffice,
Ellen. Wben 1 come back I'm going
to make the longest flight I've ever attempted. If I succeed In getting over
to Budauet's place he's promised to
bay me out. You wouldn't want to
come out and see me off?" He spoke
■ little wistfully.
Ellen's face turned obstinately a way
•a she poured herself another cup of
be was about to start on his strange
serial Jonrney without coming to tbe
house again.
Half curiously and wltb much uneasiness of mind, Ellen stole softly
through the garden Into tbe great pasture, which was Hooded with pale
moonshine. Tall, black shadowy cedars were grouped about tbe southern
boundary, nud now they were dew wet
and sinelled faintly aromatic.
Ellen approached the machine, which
lay shrouded In Its canvas blanket, and
Its very bigness suddenly attacked her
with terror of the prospective Journey
and the danger that menaced her bus-
bund. She wrung her bands nervously, striving to think of some method
that would deter Hiram from flying
lhat night. Lnder the blue sky and
sunshine It wuina not seem so dread-
tut—so dangerous.
Kltteen minutes later she was returning trom tbe barn tugging at a long
rope ut the end of which a small
anchor bumped over or stuck Into tbe
ground with annoying frequency. In
the .shadow of what she knew to be
tbe rear of the machine Ellen paused
and lifted the canvas. She surveyed
the Intricate machinery with a growing conviction thut her husband must
be deterred frnm making an ascension
above the ground. Suppose some part
should give wuy?
Slip had determined upon what especial rod she would lie the rope und
thus anchor Hiram to the ground until
she could hy wit or wile prevail U|ion
him to give up the risky adventure,
when she heard his approaching stops.
She whisked away in the shadow
of the machine Just in time to receive
tbe muffling folds of canvas In s
cloud upon her form. Plie freed her
bend and shoulders und crouched unseen by her husbnnd. Carefully he
examined the air flier, trying each
link and nut, fingering a delicate adjustment here nnd there, his face stern
and close lipped in the light of a small
brass lantern held iu one hund.
Then he moved forward; there wns
the heavy chugglug of the engine, and
Ellen's heart almost stopped still. In
another Instant It would be too late
to detain bim—he would lie out of her
reach. Iieyond her touch, und he could
not henr her plea for pardon.
Il hnd flown ahove the house Ellen
'darted desperately forwunl, groped
for and found the anchor, tied the
rope hastily aud clumsily to tbe nearest projecting rod, paused to tie another hard, square knot before Jamming tbe flukes on tbe anchor Into the
soft turf.
With a whirring rush the machine
started down tbe slope, tbe wheels revolving dlKlly. The unchor whipped
after, nnd somehow Ellen's hands
closed desperately about the flukes,
nnd then she felt herself rising upward with terrifying velocity.
Clutching the unchor. Ellen swept
up with (hp machine very much like
the tail to a gigantic kite. She heard
Hiram's voice swearing vigorously,
and she felt no horror. She closed ber
eyes tightly and held on. Her feet
brushed treetops once or twice, aud
she kuew she was above the cedar
grove. Then one foot tangled In some
crooked branch, and sbe lost her bold
on tbe unchor. With a frightened cry
she fell Into the embracing aims of
Ihe close limbed cedars. Through un
aperture In the branches sbe saw tbe
air filer dart upward and away
through the moonlight, tbe anchor
dangling like a twisted thread, until
the noise of the engine died away and
ull wns still.
Cradled III the treetops. Ellen dared
uot stir tor fear of falling. She was a
slight woum ll. and sbe had fallen
snugly into strong branches thai curved upward like the rlhs of n ship
Her bands were torn and bleeding,
her fnee was sen tchetl, and her twisted ankle pained horribly. But above
ull wns Ihe agony of belief that her
husband bod goue forth Into space
and would never return.
Too wretched to cry aloud more
than once, she huddled. cn,d and stiff,
through the long hours of tbe night.
Owls hooted unpleasantly near, whip-
poorwllls throbbed In Ihe thickets, nnd
all around were Ihe sleepy twitter of
birds and tbe soft brush of wind in
the trees.
Sbe must have fullen asleep, for the
Bound of ber name called In Hiram's
stentorian tones awakened ber lo pule
daylight. There was anxious terror iu
bis voice.
"Here I am." she called feebly, nnd
then louder, until ut lust be came won-
derlngly to ber rescue. It was not
uytll they were within tbe house und
she hnd sobbed out her wretchedness
on his breast that Hlram apoke soothingly.
"Do you know wbat you did. Ellen
Butler?" he asked. "I was In doubt
about making a successful flight, but
I didn't know  wbat was the mutter
with the machine. That there anchor
was the additional weight that balanced ber perfectly. Whatever saved
It from earthing In the trees I don't
know. It was a clear case of Providence all through. 1 guess, for you had
a uurrow esciiiie. That there anchor
sold the machine. Ellen, for without
It I couldn't have got to Budauet's.
As It Is. It's sold for enough to raise
the mortgagp and make us pretty Independent liesldes." He yawned sleepily und stretched himself
"It's done more than that. Hlram,"
said Ellen gently, .the tears shining In
ber penitent eyes.
"Whut's that?" he asked. And then,
looking dowu Into her upturned face,
be kissed her nnd smiling whimsically,
answered his own query. "Settled the
first und lust quarrel we ever had,
Ellen nodded assent. "And shows
that even tbe tall of a kite muy be
useful." She shuddered a little ut the
recollection of her perilous flight, and
Hlram paled suddenly as he stooped
toward her. And then In tbe moment
of reconciliation they forgot the white
'butterfly and tbe fortune It bad made
for tbem.

The Earl of Ellesmere, is a novelist
of considerable ability, having pun

Granville — his two middle names-
quite a number of stories. Most ot
them have a racing interest, their author being one of the keenest turf lovers. Blessed with a fine sense of humor, Lord Ellesmere is an excellent
One of his best stories concerns a
small race meeting which is held annually in one of the Midland towns!
A number of jockeys and horses had
lined up for the start of a steeplechase, but a demy occurred owing to
u tall, raw-boned beast obstinately refusing to yield to the importunities
of the starter. The patience of that
gentleman waB pretty well exhausted.
"Bring up that horse," he shouted;
"bring him up; or you'll jolly well
get into trouble, if you don't I" The
rider of the stupid animal, a local
grocer's carman, yelled back, "I can't
help it. This here's been a cab horse,
and he won't move till the door shuts;
and there ain't no door." Lord Ellesmere possesses a fine collection ot
British coins, some specimens of
which are so rare as not even to be
found in the British Museum. The
collection of pictures in his magnificent town residence, Bridgwater
House, is world famous.
That Cold Room

winter blasts strike hardest always
has a lower temperature than tne
rest of the house. There are times
when it is necessary to raise the
temperature quickly or to keep the
temperature up for a long period.
That can't be done by the regular
method of heating without great
trouble and overheating the rest of
the house. The only reliable
method of heating such a room
atone by other means is to use a

Sir Claude de Cretplgny Famous fo.
Number of His Narrow Escapes,
flir Claude Champion de Crespigny,
who has recently given to the public
a highly interring volume entitled
"Forty Years of a Sportsman's Life,"
is credi*»d with having nior- lives
than tue average cut, and with possessing more marvellous good luck
than any other personage in the
pages of. Debrett. Indeed, in his
younger days it was regarded as quite
in the ordinary course of things that
Sir Claude's name should. periodically be mentioned in connection with
some particularly narrow escape from
sudden death. 'In the matter of
broken bones alone few men have
been more peculiarly unfortunate
than this most popular of E'ise-x
sportsmen, against whose name must
be placed two leg bones fractured in
a balloon accident, three arm bones
fractured whilst hunting, three ribs
broken by a fall during a steepK
chase, and another by a more prosaic
cab accident, to say nothing of various fingers broken in boxing or by
kicks from horsea. To this may be
added repeated visitations of concussion of the brain, none of which,
however, have seriously affected bis
health. In his early days Sir Cluud".
who is now sixty-three, qualified both
as soldier and sailor. He was in the
royal navy for five years, and then
spent four years as an ensign in the
00th Rifles. Since then few parts of
the world have failed to witness his

To be recognized by a cabman sets

Nevill calls to mind a Beaconsfield
boast. He was getting into a hansom when the dr:ver opened the trap
door, "I know who you are, sir," he
snid. "1 have read all your books,

once suffered a setback. "1 walked
with Gladstone on Tuesday," wrote
Lord Houghton, "and when he left

'Might I ask if that was Mr. Disraeli?' Such is fame."—London

Lord Mayor's Pageant In London
Will Be Gorgeous This Year.
There has been a tendency in recent years to make the annual Lord
Mayor's Show on Nov. 9 "dignified."
In place of the gorgeous pageant that
those who are not so very old remember as a delightful experience of their
childhood, there has been a parade of
men in khaki and other modern uniforms of the kind which can be seen
on a smaller scale almost every day
on the Thames Embankment.
Elephants, men in armor, men and
women in all sorts of glittering costumes, gayly caparisoned horses, gorgeously decorated floats, used to be
among the glories of the show, and,
as a mutter of fact, only the Grad-
grinds welcomed the "dignified"
modifications that recent Lord Mayors insisted upon. Also, only the
Grndgrinds will object to the announcement that this year's show !s
to be in some respects a return to
the eood old style.
At the somo time, in deference to
present-doy ideas, it is to be somewhat "educational" in character. The
principal feature of the show is to
be a pageant of kings, princes, nobles, and other characters of Shakespeare's plays. Philip Carr, one of
the secretaries of the Shakespeare
Memorial National Theatre, is to have
charge of the arrangements, and
London is assured of a brilliant
pageant.   Mr. Carr says:
"Thi1 object of the Shakespeare
pageant in the Lord Mayor's Show
is to excite the interest of Londoners
in the proposed Shakespeare memorial. The tercentenary of the great
poet'B death is to be celebrated in
1916, and it is necessary in order that
a (Ming tribute to the memory of
Shakespeare shall be raised that the
memorial shall be taken in hand at
the earliest possible moment."
The procession will be one of the
longest in recent years. The officials
are careful to point out that there
will bo nothing "tawdry" about it-
no female Britannia sitting on curbstones, as Deputy Pryke, chairman of
the Procession Committee, put it.
He added: "There will be an incident representing Henry V. passing
along Eastcheap, and another of
Richard III. welcoming the two
princes and conducting them to the
Tower, with the Lord Mayor of the
period present. Falstafl, of course,
will be portrayed, in all probability,
at the head of what was called, I
believe, his 'ragged regiment.'' Another section will be occupied by
Henry VIII. and Wolsey returning
to the city after the trial of Queen
Kotherine. The majority of those
forming the procession, with the exception of monks and attendants,
will be mounted, and in the Shakespearean scenes alone 150 persons
will take part.
"In the procession will also be
Territorials and Boy Scouts, and the
trades and livery companies will, of
course, be represented.'
Little Known Bird That Inhabits ths
Pacific Coast.
Few people imagine that there is
such a marked dissimilarity in the
temperament of the different varieties
of sea bi-ds, writes H. 1. Pu.ien in
The Toronto Globe. The gull is very
majestic, with no sense of humor or
spirit of iun. Whether the bird is
soaring in the air or swimming in the
water, it is always the same. It is
ever on its dignity. Tlie guillemot,
on the other hand, is just the opposite.
When seen flying close to the surface of the water it moves with spirit,
and often seem9 to be racing. When
in its real home, however, during the
nesting season, is where it really enjoys itself.
About a thousand guillemots make
their summer homes on Bare Island
! in the Gulf of Georgia. There they
spend several months, during which
period they raise their families, and
incidentally have a most enjoyable
time. There are a great many gulls
on the island as well as the guillemots, but, while they live very near

England's Trade Boom.
Everywhere there are evidences of
a great trade boom. Recent gigantic
export returns showed how prosperous were some of the biggest of the
national industries. Only a few days
ago a boom was reported in boots at
Northampton, and recently news
came of a great awakening in the
Nottingham lace and hosiery trade
and in the Scotch woolen trade.
Indeed, in the woolen trade a boom
has begun, and Scotch tweed manufacturers have booked so heavily for
next season that they are being forced
to reopen mills which have long
been disused.
The leading tweed manufacturers
have acquired additional mills, and
air are now in full operation—a state
of affairs unknown in the border
towns for many years.
For many years trade in Nottingham and the district has been under
a cloud, but it iB now showing a remarkable revival, especially for lace
curtains and hosiery goods. Every
available curtain-making machine is
working at high pressure, and the
orders in hand are sufficient to keep
factories fully employed for several
The plain net trade is also improving, and the exports during the past
two months have increased to a considerable extent. Hosiery manufacturers have not been so busy for
Several new factories arc being
built in the district around Nottingham, and numbers of firms have made
additions to their machinery and factories to cope with the boom. Overtime is general.

All Nervous Diseases Cured
by Dr. Williams'Pink
Nerves that are over-worked or
weak quickly indicate their distress
by pain. Tnot pain may be neuralgia or inflamed nerves, usually affecting the head, but often the spine
and limbs. It may be nervous dyspepsia, easily started by worry, excitement or weakness. If muy be St.
Vitus dance, a common affliction
among cni.dren, or neurasthenia, a
condition of general nervous exhaustion accompanied by acute melancholy. Worst of all the pain may
signal the early stages of paralysis
or nervous decay. All tnese disorders signify that the hungiy nerves
are clamoring for nourishment in the
form of good, rich blood. The numerous cuies of the above named nervous diseases and weakness in both
sexes by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills,
are accounted for by the fact that
tiles:. Pills actually mnke new, rich
blood and so supply thc starved
nerves with tlie vital dements needed to strengthen them. Mr. Win. G.
Jones, Westmead, Man., snys: "A
few years ago it was my misfortune
to suffer irom nervous debi.ity,
brought about through a severe attack of la grippe or uillm-ii/ii. When
the lirst effects were f.'lt I used to
wake up in the middle oi sleep trembling like a leaf, and in a both ol
cold perspiration. Later the trouble grew so bud thnt I scarcely got
a wink of sleep, and would toss
about in bed, growing so weak that
I feared for my life. A doctor was
called in, and then
without nvuil. I became more nnd
more low spirited, and without any
apparent rea.ion would hnve fits of
crying. While in this condition, a
nervous wreck, n pamphlet was
given me telling whnt Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills had done for others, nnd
I determined to give them a trial.
By the time I had finished a few
boxes I began to get some sleep, and
this greatly encouraged nie. Then my
strength began to return,  my neivcs
are, however, much shorter than
pigeons', and their red feet are ebbed. Owing to the fact that their wings
are so short, they have to move them
very fast., Still, they fly well, and
rise from the water with ease. They
also dive and swim well, getting their
food from the water. In color they
are black, with white markings on
the wings. They have very short tail
feathers, but in place of this they
spread their feet behind them when
flying, using them as a rudder, in the
same way in which most birds do
their tails.
During some days on the island last
summer my little chum and I spent
hours watching the birds in thei:
games and securing photographs
"Tag" seems to be their favorite game
Usually the game is played by two
birds, although sometimes three or
more take part.
Picture to yourself hundreds of the
birds sitting on the rocks along the
rugged shore of the little island. Some
are almost asleep, others are talking
to each other with the peculiar hiss
ing voice of theirs, while yet other?
nre trying to crowd their neighbor off
the rocks. One stands erect and give.,
its wings a flap, as if to challenge an
other to a race. At once he is away,
and the other after him away out to
Bea. The challenger drops into the sea
at a distance of from one to two hun
dreds yards from shore. The pursuer
may follow, diving after him. ann
perhaps, giving him a nip either-in
the air or in the water. Then they re
turn to the rocks, and the game :s
taken up by some others.
The fun continues throughout the
morning hours. Sometimes a Bird
catches a small fish as it dives beneath the water. It then flics witb it
to the shore, as if challenging some
other to take it away. Almost invariably there is a chase, the pursuer
sometimes following the other beneath the weter, and at other time}
waiting for the diver to come to the
surface again. Perfect good-humor
seems to prevail throughout, the
games being apparently tests of skill
in flying ond diving.
The guillemots lay their eggs in a
crevice in the rocks, sometimes a lorni
way from the surface, and at others
quite exposed, although tbe latter
seems to be rather an exception to the
rule, lt is not difficult to catch the
parent birds on the nests, but in doing so it is desirable to exercise great
care, as they defend themselves quite
fiercely with their bills. Even the
little birds a day or two old know how
to use their bills wi,th effect.
The young lirds are black, woolly
little creatures, with a white speck
on the top of the bill. When taken
from the nest they crouch low, and
when their nests are invaded try to
Wamble into the innermost recesses
among the rocks. Tlie parent birds

that time he has earned a livelihood
by appearing on the lecture platform, vaudeville stage, and by engaging in various other occupations
that require more intellect than
vision. His latest role is that of nn
author, and he is now selling n
pamphlet called The New Genesis
whicli he bas recently had printed.

left for Phoenix on Tuesday, but
will return next week to canvass
this city for his publication.

Falling Hair
Mrs. Jas. Hajris, of Wappella,
Sask., snys:
"1 have found Parisian Sage to be
the best scnlp and hair tonic and
dressing I have ever used. My hair
had been coming out in combs full
and was very dry and bjittle and the
scalp wa» always itching and full of
dandruff. I have used two bottles of
Parisian Sage and it has stopped my
hair from falling, the itching and dandruff have disappeared and my hair is
fine and soft and glossy. I would not
be without this fine hair tonic for
many times the price."
For women, men or children Parisian Sage is without any doubt the
finest preparation for the hair. Dain

it daily. Lurge bottle 50 cents from

DODD'S   '
Wanted for Stealing Fares and Selling Tickets.
(From Montreal Gazette.)
Judge Lanctot, at tlie request of the
crown prosecutor, has issued a bench
warrant for the arrest of E. Smith, a
former sleeping-car conductor in the
employ of the Canadian Pacific railway company, whu at one time ran
between Montreal and Vtncouver, and
latterly between Montreal and Toronto.
Early in Octoher information reached tlie Crown authorities whicli led up
to Smith's arrest for stealing sleeping
ear tares, and for stealing and selling
railway tickets to various persons in
Montreal and elsewhere. Smith had
a preliminary hearing and was committed for trial to the Court of King's
Bench, bis case being set for the 10th.
When called, he tailed to appear,
with the result that his bail was forfeited and a bench warrant issued for
liis arrest.
The case caused a good deal of interest in railway circles, and it is
probable; that other than railway people will become interested, as the
names and addresses of quite a number of people witli whom he has been
Jo.ng business are known, and it is
likely that before the mutter is finally disposed of several of tlie hunters
for bargains in railway transporta-
.ion will be dealt with.
"It is really too bad," said a high
official of the Canadian Pacilic, "that
the travelling public should suggest
such dishonesty to conductors. If
passengers would refrain from making conductors steal from the company by offering them facilities and
inducements to do so, it would be
better for them in every way. We
have the names of a good many men
who have done this in Montreal and
other places and they include some
pretty prominent men. Morally they
are as guilty, if not more so, than the
conductors whom they train to become thieves, and the practice of trying to get this cheap transportation
at the expense of the company and
the honesty of the conductors cannot
be too sharply repressed.
"In the present instance it has led
to the ruin of a young man and the
breaking up of his home. While we
are sorry for those who suffer by it,
the company must stop this business
of stealing fares, and prosecution will
follow every instance that is discovered."

Weak, Sickly Babies
Make Home Wretched
No home is happy where there is a
sick baby. The sufferings of the little one makes the whole household
wretched, for what mother or father
would not rather suffer themselves
than to see their little one suffer.
But there is no reason for wretched
homes, because baby is ill. Baby's
Own Tablets will cure all the minor
ills of babyhood and childhood; not
only that, but an occasional dose of
the Tablets will keep baby well.
Thousands of mothers have found
happiness through the Tablets making their little ones well and happy.
Among them is Mrs. C. C. Roe, of
Georgetown, Ont., who writes: "I
can heartily recommend Baby's Own
Tablets as a help to the baby during the hot summer season. We have
used them and are much pleased with
their results." The Tablets are sold
by medicine dealers or by mail at
26 cents a box from The Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., Brockville, Ont.

The Government Has Declared in
Favor oi Negotiations With the
Federal Government to Secure
Provincial Control of Valuable Resources—Mr. Cornwall on the
Wealth of the North. '
Edmonton, Alta,.—The government,
through Premier Sifton, lias declared
once and ior all in favor of negotiations with the federal government to
secure provincial control of natural
resources, thereoy udopting, with the
exception of lanus, tne platfouu that
was, for years, tne foundation principle of tlio old territorial provincial
rights party under Hon. Mr. Haul-
tain, ol which paity, Piemier Sifton
was a former member.
Speaking of the resolution, of
Bruuiley-Aioore, calling upon the government to take steps to secure the
control of such natural resources as
are oi local concern, Premier Silton
said it would be the policy of the government to forward negotiations with
the Dominion government towards
this end, and to keep on negotiating.
He, personally, had always been in
accord with tne views expressed in
the resolution.
On tne request of the premier, Mr.
Moore's reBOiution, seconded by Mr.
Cornwall, wus withdrawn, tne premier pointing out tnat its passing could
do little towards assisting the cause
of provincial rights since it was a
question of negotiating mere than
anything else.
For the first time since the session
opened, reference was made in the
debate on Moore's resolution to the
A. & G. ,W. and the premier's proposed policy in connection with the
Despite the fact that the premier
had not officially announced his
policy to the house, both Cornwall
and Michener indicated their standing on the question of the house,
when they broke into direct denunciations of the premier's proposed appropriation of the A. & G. W. money
for the wiping out of the provincial
debt and other purposes. Mr. Cornwall made his usual convincing address on the resources of the north
country, thundering on the desk with
his fist, declared in emphatic language, "there has been enough valuable timber destroyed in the north
country in the last ten years by
wasteful forest fires, to wipe out this
little debt that we hear so much of,
and to build half a dozen railways
without it having cost us a cent."
Mr. Cornwall went on further to
denounce the inefficient manner of
the department of the interior in not
protecting this valuable asset from
destruction by fires.
Mr. Michener referred to the premier's proposal to deal with the A. &
G. W. bonds, as a misappropriation
of money to pay a debt which would
never have existed had Alberta owned
its natural resources and waB it deriving revenue therefrom.
Mr. Cornwall, rising to second Mr.
Moore's resolution, said the question
of provincial control of resources had
been a bone of contention between
political parties, but he was going
to deal with it from the standpoint
of an Alberta business man, and
would like to have the house consider
the question in that light. If the
province could possibly get hold of
her natural resources, there woUld be
little difficulty between the parties,
as it would be only a matter of administration.
Mr. Cornwall referred to the efforts
to get the Dominion government interested in the development of the
north and instanced how little faith
either party at Ottawa appeared to
have in the richness of that section
of the Dominion. He said the present
party in power at Ottawa had done
• some little woik in surveying and exploring. He thought it wouid be an
easy matter to secure control of the
natural resources, since the authorities appeared to have such little faith
in the country.
"In the old Athabasca territory,"
said Mr. Cornwall, "there is 100,000,-
000 acres of land, 40 per cent, ot
which is as capable of cultivation as
any of the land between Edmonton
and the international boundary.
Twenty-five per cent, was swamp
land, not muskeg, and the balance in
timbered lands. It is well-known
that the land which will live longest
without artificial means oi cultivation
is the land that is timbered.
"There are great tracts of tar sand
on the Athabasca river; the river cuts
through 126 miles of it. At Fort Mc-
Murray, on the 900-foot level, there is
a deposit of salt 15 feet thick, then
there is 16 ieet of sandstone, then a
further layer of sandstone, then a
further layer of 65 feet of salt. There
is untold wealth in the beautiful granite deposits that are on the edge of
the barren grounds around Lake Athabasca. There is gold in the Laird and
the Athabasca, copper in Uie north
country. The Yellow Knives, a native
tribe, received their names because
they used raw copper to make knives,
kettles, pots and other utensils. There

He declared all the Liberals in the
territories were in favor of provincial
ownership of resources. Scott, Bul-

Now, said he, they were all in high

change of front on the question.
Michener also declared the province should have control oi the immigration policy of the province, as

Police    Have    Difficulty    In   Saving
Liberal Statesmen from Sevsre
London.—Thc political campaign is
being waged with a fiercen.ss, almost
unknown in'England, both by politicians and suffragettes. A battle on
Downing street, which waB fought recently when several hundred suffragettes, attempting to storm the premier's residence, assaulted Mr. Asquith and Augustine Birrell, chief
secretary for Ireland, and broke
many windows in the government
offices, surpassed all previous spectacles of the sort.
About 150 women and several men
supporters were taken to the police
Following an announcement by the
prime minister in the house of commons that, if he were still in power
at the next session of parliament, the
government would give facilities for
the consideration of a suffrage.te bill,
a large body of women, inflamed
rather than placated by this promise,
which was characterized as "nothing
more or less than an insult to the
cause," left Caxton hall in search of
the premier. They found him on the
way to Downing street and immediately formed a ho-tile cordon. One
woman struck the government leader
and the premier would have fared
badly had not large detachments of
police come tunning to Irs rescue.
The police had great difficulty in
putting down the disorders, and the
rioting continued into the evening
when squads of women attacked the
residence of Sir Edward Grey, the
foreign secretary, Winston Churchill,
the home secretary, and Lewis Her-
court, secretary of state for the
Stones crashed through the winlows
of the houses. Sir Edward Grey'B
bearing the brunt of attack.
One band spied Mr. Birrell strolling through St. James park to the
Athenaeum club,' and swooped down
over the aged statesman, knocking his
hat over his eyes, and kicking him
about the legs. When heln came and
the women driven off, Mr. Birrell
limped to his motor car, on the arms
of policemen.
Mr. Churchill addressed a big meeting from which several men adherents of the women's cause were
dragged out by the police. Mr.
Churchill strongly defended the propriety of Irish-American contributions to the Home Rule cause.' The
cry of American dollars was likely to
be used as a retort by .the Liberals,
he said, since Waldorf-Aster announced that he was again a candidate for the Conservatives for Plymouth.

"Are immigrants to Canada instructed that this is a British country and that it is it's intention to remain so?"
These queries are to be made in the
house by Col. Sam Hughes. They
arise out of a report of the proceedings before the Technical Education
commision at Calgary. The school
inspector of Red Deer said that there
had been some trouble in respect to
singing British patriotic songs, such
as "Rule Britannia," in schools.
United States settlers sometimes objected to them.
Vessels in the Harbor Pay Tributa to

marked the civic reception to Admiral
Kingsinill and the officers oi the
Rainbow, upon the cruiser's first visit
to Vancouver.
Civic officials and citizens joined in
the ceremonies as well as the many
vessels in the harbor, all paying
tribute to the first official representative of Canada's navy on the Pacific.
The weather was perfect.

General Sir John French Makes a
Special Report on Western Csnada,
Praising the Work of the Western
Troops—A Frank Criticism of Canadian Organization on Various
Ottawa.—The report of Sir John
French, inspector-general oi the imperial lorces, on tue Canadian militia has been made public. Sir John
begins by strongly emphasizing tlie
vuiuo of organization, which, he says,
iB the corner stone of military efficiency, and adds that no amount ol
superior physique, armament or in-
uuiduul excellence in either commanders, staff or bodies of troops,
cun compensate ior a want of it.
General Frencn makes a separate
report on Western Canada. He advocates the line of organization at
present being followed, namely the
development of the mounted rifles
supported by the field artillery, although he also advocates the employment of a oertain amount of infantry,
and perhaps heavy artillery to defend
important centres like Winnipeg or
Calgary. On the whole, he praises
the work of the western.troops in the
camps he visited, but says that many
faults still remain to be rectified, and
that the cavalry should be given sixteen days training at least. He also
advocates the establishment of a
training ground in the west like that
at Petewawa, which he pruses extensively, recommending that it be UBed
more than it is at present.
He also condemns the lack of drill
halls in the west, and censures the
general absence of an open space surrounding them in those places where
drill halls are situated.
General Franch criticises the Canadian organization on two lines. The
proportion between various arms of
service is not correctly adjusted.
There is too much iniantry and heavy
ariillery, and only half as much field
artillery, as is advisable, while the engineers and supply service are too
weak. The distribution of troops is
The arrangement in regards of war
divisions are faulty in that the corps
which would serve together in war
arc not trained together in peace. He
submits with this a scheme of organization which shows a shortage of one
regiment of cavalry, one battery of
horse artillery, twenty batteries of
field artillery, three field troops oi
engineers, five field companies of engineers, four telegraph detachments
and numerous unitB of army Bervice
corps and medical corps.
General French next advocates
drawing up a sound soheme of mobilization, which would include the
establishment of a railway war council, presided over by a chief of the
general staff, and including amongst
its members managers or representatives of the principal railway companies of Canada.
"The staff at present maintained at
headquarters and in commands appears to me absurdly inadequate in
numbers to deal successfully with the
numerous problems which requre ite
attention," he says.
The general also lays strrss upon
the question of horse supply, saying
that the war establishment of existing authorized units calls for a provision of 33,000 horses at once on
mobilization, and a reserve of at least
30,000 more. The registration of so
large a number of horses demands the
organization of a remount staff. He
praises the work of the Breeders' association,
"I may summarise the principal
shortcomings as lying in an inefficiently developed organization, inadequate knowledge in higher command, in the test qualification for officers and non-commissioned officers
of active militia laid down in regulations not being strictly erfireed, and
in the rank and file not being compelled to, fulfill their engagements,"
he said in criticism. "Only when the
regulations which govern the constitution and maintenance of militia are
strictly enforced will it be possible to
say whether the present system meete
the defensive requirements of the
countiy or not. Judging from what I
have seen of the excellent material
and fine spirit which is apparent iu
all ranks, and taking into consideration the marked progress which haB
been made within the past few years
and the evident signs of its continuance I should be inelin"d to think
that so long as the present conditions
of affairs on the North American continent remain as they are, the existing system, efficiently administered
on a sound baBis of peace organization, should suffice to meet the needs
of the Dominion."

The  Motion of Amnesty Carried
a Very Big Majority—Stormy
Scenes in  Parliament
Rio Janeiro.—The Chamber of Deputies by a vote of 111 to 23 passed a
resoution granting amnesty to the
mutineers oh board the battleships
Minas Geraes and Sao Paulo, the
coast defence ships Marshal Floriano
and Marshal Deodora and the scout
ship Bahia. Then Senate unanimously passed the measure on Thursday.
Immediately alter the lower house
had- voted to pardon the sailors for
having mutinied and killing several
of their officers and throwing shells
into the city, President Fonesca authorized Deputy Carvalho to visit the
Sao Pa\ilo and confer with the mutineers.
The decision of the Chamber of
Deputies was not reached until there
had been stormy scenes and several
fist fights on the floor. When the Senate passedtthe measure the Chamber
immediately took up its consideration.
The debate was without result, however, and the session was adjourned,
President Fonseca having stated that
should parliament vote amnesty he
would sign he measure. The chamber
reassembled, but owing to the arguments of deputies for and against the
proposition the vote was not reached
until the evening.
Meantime the mutinous vessels,
which had been waiting outside .the
bar for a signal to come in, put to
sea and disappeared. Their destination was not made known.
Canada's   Arctic    Explore)* on
Way to the Mouth' of the
Mackenzie River
Ottawa. — Mr. Alex. Johnstone,
deputy minister of marine and fisheries, has received a letter irom Capt.
•I. E. Bernier, in command oi the
steamer Arctic, now in the far nortli,
telling of the first stage of the expedition whose object is to assert British
authority in northern waters.
The letter, which was written at
Albert Harbor on Aug. 13, says that
the Arctic had a fair passage as far
as Greenland, where a good deal of
ice and log was encountered. The
captain says tliat up to the time of
writing everything seemed favorable
to the Arctic's enterprise. " Strong,
gales  from  the south  indicated  that ] •i'i"
to serve him as we were to save ourselves. So Uie great lesson for the
saved sinner to learn is the significance of "Not I, but Christ;" "Not I,
but the grace of God;" "Without Me
ye can do nothing" (Gal. ii, 20; I Cor.
xv, 10; John xv, 5). Unless it is God
who woiketh in ua both to will and to
do of His good pleasure the work cannot stand, hut will prove to be only
wood, hay and stubble. We must be
ever watchful, prayerful, submitting
to God and resisting the devil, if we
would walk worthy of Him who hath
called us to His kingdom and glory.
We have seen Peter daring to rebuke
the Lord as He spake of suffering,
though the Scriptures may be said to
be full of predictions concerning the
sufferings of the Messiah. We have
heard him say; "We have left all for
Thee. What shall we have, therefore?"   We have also heard him say.
Thou shalt never wash my feet."
We have heard his self confident
boasting that he was ready to die
with Christ. Yet we have seen him
taking off a man's ear, for a little
while Jorsaking Christ, then iollowing
afar off, then in company with the
enemies of Christ and warming himself at their fire. What can we expect next from such a man?
The damsel who kept the door as
she saw him sit by the fire vyarming
himself loked earnestly upon him and
said, "And thou also wa.t with Jesus
of Nazareth." Compare the four accounts. But he denied, saying, "Woman, I know Him not; neither understand I what thou sayest." Alas,
alas, how can we account for it? Did
the devil, who IM Judas Iscariot tii
betray Christ, take possessi in of Peter also? Even so, for on a previous
occasion Jeeos had to say to Peter,
Get thee behind me, Satan" (Matt,
xvi., 23). On the Passover night the
Lord said, "Simon, Simon, behold,
Satan hath desired to have you (R.
V., asked to have you), that he may
sift you as wheat, but I have prayed
for thee that thy faith fail not" (Luke
xxii, 31, 32).
After that first denial he went out
into the porch, and the cock crew.
Then another maid saw him and began to say to them that stood by,
"This fellow was also with Jesus of
Nazareth." And asain he deni 'd with
an oath, "1 do not know the mat)."

might have repented sooner, but it

The kinsman of the man whose ear
Peter cut off said, "Did not 1 see thee
in the garden with Him?" Then he
began to curse and to swear, saying,
"I know not this man oi whom ye
speak." And immediately, while lie
