commissioner under tbe public enquiry act to investigate all matters
pertaining to tbe sect of Doukhobors
iu British Columbia.
1. Tbat tbe Doukhobors are desirable citizens from the standpoint
of tbeii personal character, farming
skill, devotion to agriculture and
general industry.
2. That tbis investigation bas
failed to establish any valid objection to tbem except tbeir relusal to
comply with the registration laws
and schools act.
3. That tbere is no evidence of
customs or practices of any kind
detrimental to the general wellbeing
of the community.
4. That such minor objections as
have been raised abould not be allowed  to weigh against their many

6. That there ii sufficient evi
denoe to justify the conclusion tbat
their views will be modified aa they
become better acquainted with the
true character of our institutions.
T. Tbat the head of the Doukhobor community, Peter Veiegin, has
sufficient influence and authority to
bring about full compliance wilh
these laws, if not at once, at any
rate within a reasonable time.
8. That there is reason to believe
that the Doukhobors have to some
extent been kept in tbe dark ss to
their obligations under certain Canadian laws.
9. Tbat they have imbibed the
impression that as long as they did
not become naturalized British subjects they would not be called upon
to obey certain laws.
10. Tbat they have been taught
that in coming to British Columbia
and acquiring their lund hy purchase from individuals they would
not be nnder the same obligation to
obey the laws ss in Saskatchewan,
wbere they acquired their land from
the government.
11. That punishment by imprisonment fails of its effects in tbeir
ease because they regard it as persecution, and are lhe more inclined to
this view because the spirit ol distrust has been developed in them in
conseqence of the persecution to
which they have been subjected for
more thnn 300 years.
The commissioner makes the  following recommendations:
(a) That   having   regard   to Ihe
fit
is found necessary, to reBort to prosecution and iu case conviction ensues
it is desirable that the punishment should tnke the form ol
fines rather than imprisonment, as
the imposition of fines would be
more effective and would bring the
matter home to the parties directly
responsible—the leaders.
(It) That all conditions would appear to jus ify the government in
adopting a poliey of patience with
tbe people and putting pressure on
the leaders.
(c) That with respect to the reg
istration of births, deaths and marriages, a responsible member of the
Doukhobor community might be
: ppointed sub-registrar. Tbis would
facilitate registration on the spot
and prompt communication with
the chief registrar of the district,
(d) That with respect to the public schools act compliance should be
insisted on, and in order to give the
Doukhobors confidence and secure
their sympathy some working arrangements might be made under
which Russian teachers could be
employed in conjunction with Canadian teachers and tbe curriculum
modified so as to include only   ele-
(e) Tbat haying regard to the very
extensive and important interests
represented by tbe Doukhobors in
thia province, .it ;*oujd be good twli
to*the Indian ageiKa.
(D Thatj^sjMbeW interests
of tbe country  that the ordeRF"
eouncil  exempting  from   military
service should be cancelled.
(g) That it is not desirable that
any more Doukhobors should be admitted to Canada except on the clear
Understanding that no exemption of
any kind be allowed in the matter
of the observance of the laws.

A Mraculoua Escape
.'_ mishap befell a steamboat tripper
on the West Coast last summer. In
common with others he found much enjoyment In watching the engines at
work. Their were several doors
around and .ibcve the engine-room and
he was interestedly following the
movements of the engineer through
one of thess when a crowd came suddenly along tbe passage, the pressure
being so great that the door gave way
and he wus hurled, as it seemed, Into
the midst of the moving machinery and
lost consciousness.
When he came to on the upper deck
he was Informed that a moment before he fell the starboard engine had
been stopped, as tho boat was just
rounding in, and lt was found that he
had simply received a few bruises.
It waa a miraculous escape from what
might have been a fearful death.
Labby and the Brigand
Brigandage In Mexico was a common
profession and had its rules. The
late Mr. Labouchere was onco for
some weeks nt a Biigar plantation near
a small provincial town In Mexico. In
the town ll"ed a brigand. He was
highly esteemed hy his neighbors, and,
said Mr. Labouchere, 1 passed many
a ploasant evening with him and hiB
family. His daughter was a beauty,
and this estimable puront was amassing a little fortune for her.
His habit wa* to vide at night to the
road between Mexico and Vera Cruz
with two or three usBodates, and to
lew contributions on tho diligence.
When I left tht town I wanted to strike
this road and I went wltfi him and his
friends. We reached it at about six
In tho morning. Having partaken of
chocolate, tho brigands posted themselves behind some rocks, and I looked on. Soon the diligence was seen
approaching The brigands emerged
and the coachman stopped; ibe pas-
Bengers were requested lo descend,
aud were politely eased of their,
money.
The passengers then took their
placos again In the coach and lt drove
off, while tho brigands courteously
bowed to them. Bo honest wcro
they ln theli peculiar way tbut: they
wished me to take my share in the
spoil; but this, ot course, my standard
of morality bolng different from theirs,
I declined. My estimable friends
then retired into a nelgrboring church
to give thanks for the success of their
enterprise and I wished them goodbye Hiding on to Puecla, I dined
at a table d'hote that evening with
the doBpolleJ travellers, and adds Mr.
Labouchere, was greatly amused to
hear them recount the valorous manner in which they had defended themselves, and how they at last had to
succumb to numbers.

Most diseases start ln the alimentary canal—stomach and bowels.
A great leal of our stomach and

The stemich does not digest any of
tlio starchy food we eat—white bread,
pastry, potatoes, oats, etc.—these

most of us do, the organs thnt should
digest this kind of food aro overcome
by excess of work, so Unit fermentation, ludlgesl.on, nnd a long train of

Too much fat also Is hard to digest
and this ts changed Into acids, sour

Advantages and Saving by Using
The Loading Platform
In ihlL writing we desire to put beforo our Western Farmers the*
saving and advantage of loading grain dime', on cars. Shipping grain
through an elevator, It matters no*, whether a Government elevator ox
one run hy an elevator company or individual owner, does not am
the lcai. fraction of t cent to the value ot he grain, nor does It give
tbe farmer any better chance of marketing It to advantage tban when
loaded direct on cars. But loading direct .n cars cuts out In thc flrst
place the elevator charge, which ls usually 1.4c. per bushel, .say
117.50 on it thousand bushel car. Tbe elevator dockage Is also
saved- this may bo worth more or less, dep.ailing partly on how dirty
the grain ls, but mostly on the farmer's ability ln holding his bwn
with rhe elevator man taking lt ln. On tho average the dockage
may be considered worth 3c per bushel to the farmer, or say $30 per
rar of 1,000 bushels. When grain is loaded direct Into car over the
Loading Platform, the farmer knowt, for sure that lt Is his very own
grain that will he graded by the Inspector, ur.d that he will without
doubt receive the full and exact outturn of bis car at whichever terminal i levator it is unloaded; for all grain 's unloaded from the cars
under government superlntendance and weighed by properly qualified
government welghmen under the rules and rupervislon ot the Dominion Government Board of Grain Commission-re.
Of "oursc, lt makes no difference tn our loading of the farmers'
grain whether it has boen shipped through an elevator or over the
Loading Platform, but It can easily be Been from what we have stated
above 'vhere the farmer's advantage lies, when It saves him around
$60 or more on every car he ships.
We contlnuo to act as the farmers' agent In looking after and disposing of carlot shipments of wheat, oats, barley and flax strictly on
a commission of 1 cent per bushel. We are not connected with,
nor Interested iu any elevator companies nr elevators, either local or
termini!!, neither are we track buyers, in fact, we never buy farmers' grain on our own Recount, but only to hr.ndle and dispose of the
grain .-i.trusted lo us as the agonts of those wbo employ us. Many

tjasliu in this special branch of thu grain trade, have given us a reputation of the highest character In It. Wl make liberal advances

Need New, Rich Blood to Restore
Them to a Healthy Condition
Actually tr. need ot food to nourish
the body and yet afraid to eat because of tho racking pains that follow. Thai Is the condition of the
sufferer from Indigestion—a choice between starvation ov merciless torture.
Thn urge-.', need of .all dyspeptics,
of everybody whose organs of digestion havo become unfit to perform
their Important duly. Is for stronger
stomachs that can extract nourishment from focd. Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills give Wflttlt stomachs Just the
strength th..y need by enriching the
blood supph. thus giving tone and
strength to the stomach and Its
nerves, and enabling lt to do the work
nature intended lt to do. Thousands
of cases ot Indigestion have been
cured by Dr Williams' Pink Pills, of
which the following ls but ono instance. Miss L. A. Brown, Port Albert, Ont., says: "For a number of
years 1 was a terrible sufferor from
indigestion .'.nil as a result I became
completely nm down, and suffered
from backaches snd nervous troubles
as well, I had to force myself to eat,
but nevor enjoyed a meal owing to
the awful pains that followed eating.
Life was becoming a burden, and as
medicine after medicine failed to help
me I felt I was doomed to go through
life a constant sufferer. Finally a
mairled sts'er strougly urged- me to
try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and 1
have reason to bo thankful that I followed ber advice, ns they have fully
restored my heulth, and I can now enjoy all kind*) of food without the least
discomfort and my friends say 1 am
looking better than 1 have done for
years. At all events I know I feel
like a new person, so sball always
pralBO Dr. Williams* Pink Pills."

\THE DOUKHOBOR REPORT
The citizens of Grand Forks arid
the Kettle valley had been led to
believe that the report of Doukho
hor Commissioner Blakemore would
lie adverse to their interests. Many
incidents had fostered this impression. The commissioner's sympathies while the invesgation was in
progress bere and in Nelson had a
leaning toward tbe Doukhobors; his
readiness to grant them counsel and
his reluctance to allow tbe people
of tbit district tbe same privilege,
taken in connection witb bis numerous confabs with the autocrat of the
Doukhobor society,were signs whicb
plainly foretold the nature of his report and recomendations. But wbile
the citizens did not expect a report
favorable to their cause, they were
not prepared for the one-tided and
apparently biased document printed
in the daily papers on Christinas
day and reproduced in this issue of
The Sun. They have not ytt fully
recovered from their surprise, and
therefore it is difficult to Bay what
caurse they will pursue when tbey
awaken to a full realization of tbe
import of Mr. Blakemore Christmas
message. Tbose who have ventured
an opinion, are vehement in their
condemnation of the commissioner's
findings and unsparingly censure
the government for appointing him
to the position.
Some of the commissioner's   rec
ommendations are ridiculous, and if
the government acts in accordance
with them it will store up trouble
for many future generations. The
dual school system recommended
should be kept out of the province. If
once introduced it may take a great
many years to abolish it. The punishment of crime by imposing fines
would have no deterrant effect among
men wbo do not see a dollar from
one year to another, yet Mr. Blakemore advocates this method of punishment in preference to imprison
ment. The appointment of Doukhobor sub-registrars would not
tend to enforce a compliance witb
the registration law, aB every member of the community, from Czar
Peter down to the lowest plodder, is
bitterly opposed to it.
The commissioner says the Doukhobors are desirable citizens. If
conditions in the South in ants helium times were desirable, then we
agree with him, otherwise we wish
to enter an omphalic denial. The
Doukhobor laborer receives nn better treatment than did the black
slave. Some pay he fares worse,
because the Southern slave-owner
had a monetary investment in his
darkies, which caused him to be
more solicitous concerning tbeir
health and welfare. The poor Douk
works every day in the year, except
Sundays, without receiving one cent
of compensation. He never has nny
money to buy any of the comforts
of life for bis family, and if he
wishes to leave colony and start in
life for himself he is merely given
a few dollars, no matter how many
years of hard work he may have
performed for tbe society. And the
product of this man's work enters
into competition witb the wares of
ibt rancher who has to pay high
wages for his help. This is a phase
of the question againsl wbich no
complain has so far been made, although tbere appears to be ample
justification for one.
The attitude of the citizens respecting the Doukhobors is not unreasonable, They merely demand
tbat tbe members of this sect shall
observe the same laws as tbey themselves have to obey. Nothing could
be fairer, All British subject have
to register births and deaths, obtain
marriage licenses and Bend their
children ts school. Wby should
the Doukhobors be exempt from
any of these duties? Even if they
comply with them, they have an aH_
vantage over the ordinary citizen,
because they are exempt from mili-

McIntyre(&Smith's
tary Bervice,
For a royal commissioner to rec
minuend that the laws be suspended when dealing with a certain element of society can only be construed into one meaning—that tbe
present government is unable to enforce the statutes of the province,
Such an admission will breed a contempt for the law by every citizen
in the community.
Even though the people of tbe
district did not expect a remedy for
their grievances from the commissioner, they had hoped tbe provincial authorities would see fit to administer the laws without discrimination. But this hope haB also heen
shattered. Today the citizen must
obey the laws, wbile the unnaturalized member of a foreign sect can
snap his fingers at tbe authorities.
' The commission has been a heavy
burden on the taxpayers of tbe
province, It is said that the commission cost the people from $400
to $500 a day, and months were
cunsumed in taking evidence where
weeks or days should have
i-ulficed. Of this amount, tbe tax
payers of this valley will have to
puy their quota. But even at tbis
high price, there would bave been
no complaint if impartial justice
had been handed out.
For The Sun's opinion of the com
missioner we refer the reader to the
files of this paper wben tbe appoint
ment was made.
If you want to see the city beld
up for $250 on reservoir contracts,
do not take an interest in munic pal
affairs, but let the members of the
present council slip iuto office by
acclamation.
ll you want to see the streets
lined witb drunken men on Sunday,
and have your family insulted wbile
on their way to church, do not take
an interest in city affairs, but return
tbe present government to office by
acclamation.
If you think material tbat material
whieh has been condemned for a
public building is goud enough for
city work, let tbe present council
slip into office by acclamation.
If you want your taxes raised five
or ten mills higher, and thus keep
investors out of the city, let the
present government slip into offi<6
by acclatnation.
If you want- to put the city to
the expense of two or three eh ctions
before a legal money bylaw can be
passed, return tbe present council
to ullice.

The Vernon News has issued a
02-page Christmas edition. It covers every section of the Okanagan
country with bright write-ups and
fine half-tone illustrations, and is
undoubtedly the greatest publication ever sent out from a country
oflice in this province. The News is
a good example of what can he accomplished when a newspaper owner
is a member of Premier McBride's
cabinet.
Some business men are so fond of

PRESS COMMENT
There is a great fluttering in the
political dovecots of tbe east juat
now, according te the best authori-j
ties. The followers of Mr. Borden
are alarmed. Some one baa told
them lhat tbe Liberals are determined to oppose the naval bill to
the limit and to insist further than
that upon the passage of a measure
of redistribution during tbe present
darliamentary session. This ia a
program which -nil) be carried out
even to the point of forcing a dissolution. Nor is that all. It is further
aaid that in any event tbe senate
will throw out the naval bill ns a
measure that should be submitted
to the people for their approyal
Rumors of thut kind, needless to
Bay, have created terrible perturba
tiou in the camps of the Conservatives. The seekers for office had
soothed themselves into a belief that
the government was safe for four
years at least, and that there was
plenty of ti-'ne to seek the sanctuary
of n sure thing with easy and convenient hours. But tbe suspicion
has been aroused that this is not the
time for them to let the grass grow
under lagging feet. Offices must be
found immediately. If tbey can not
be bad in any other way, let the
government make them. It has net
moved fast enough, anyway, with
so many Grits left in places where
Tories sbould dwell securely, There
are surely busy and exciting times
ahead.—Victoria Times.
If Mr. Borden is able to carry oui
a policy in accord with the stand
taken on every occasion since being
leader of his party, then a corkscrew
is a straight line, twice two are six,
grass can be blue, riven flow uphill,
and navigators can steer north by
south and east by west.—Acadian
Recorder.

Newspaper Law
1. A postmaster is required to give
notice by letter (returning the paper
does not answer the law) when a subscriber does not take his paper nut of
the postofliee, and state the reason for
its not being taken. Any neglect to
do so makes the postmaster responsible tu the publisher for payments.
2. If any person orders his paper;
discontinued he must pay all arrear- j
ages, or the publishers may continue
to send it until payments are made,
and collect the whole amount whether
the paper is taken from the office or j
not. There can be no legal discontinuance until payment is made.
3. Any person who takes a paper
out of tlie postoffice, whether directed
to his name or not, or whether he has
subscribed or not, is responsible for
the pay.
4. If a subscriber orders his paper
stopped and the publisher continues to
send it, the subscriber is bound to
pay for it if he takes it out of the
post office. This proceeds upon the
ground that a man must pay for what
he uses.
5 The courts have decided that refusing to take newspapers on periodicals from the post office or removing,
leaving them uncalled for, is prima
facie evidence of intentional fraud.

years of great suffering from Nervous
Headache and oilier symptoms arising
from Weak, watery blood and a starved and exhausted condition of the
nervous system.
Mrs. George Bradshaw, Cosy Nook,
Harlowe, Ont., writes:—"I am glad
to siato that 1 received benefits from
Dr. Chase's Nerve Food which I failed to get a.y placo else. I was
troubled for many years In fact from
my early womanhood, with weak,
watery blood, and given to dropsy.
I suffered untold agonies from nervous
sick headaches, dizziness, and sinking
spells, ln fact was a semi-invalid for
many years. I tried many kinds of
pntent medbin'es, and got no help, and
tried every new doctor that came
along, but all failed to help me. Doctors told me I had no blood, and that
my heart an-1 kidneys wero diseased,
and that I had so many complaints
thero was not much use ln doctoring
up one or two. Four years ago I
tool: six boxes of Dr. Chase's Nervo
Food, and was glad to seo I felt het

have cured mo ot many of my complaints. When 1 began taking Nerve

Zam-Buk Cured Him In Few Weeka
Mr. Fred Mason, the well-known
upholsterer and mattress manufacturer of St. Andrews, N.B., says:—
"I had eczema on my knee, which
caused me terrlblo pain and inconvenience. The sore parts would Itch and
burn and tingle, and then when, rubbed or scratched would become'very
painful. When tho knee got warm,
it burned worse, and tho itching and
burning and smarting were almost unbearable. 1 tried various remedies,
but got no better, so 1 decided to go
to Montreal and take special treatment. I received treatment nt the
Montreal Goneral Hospital for thirteen
weeks, but at the end of that tlmo I
was not cured, and almost gavo in. A
friend ndvlsad mo to give Zam-Buk a
trial.
"Almost as soon as applied Zam-
Buk stopped the itching and the irritation. I persevered with the balm,
and it wns soon evident that It would
do me good Each day tlie pain was
reduced, the sore spots began to lical,
and by the time I had iiBcd a few
boxes of Zam-Buk I was quite cured.
"Since then Zam-Buk has cured
Mood-poison in my finger, and at a
time when my linger was in such a
terrible condition that I feared It
would have to be amputated."

Michael and Ellen were brought up together, played together till they were

they had iii-t-lvctl'nt an age when they

ft Strangi  Tale  of  a Clever Theft
Which Was Returned.
We are officially informed that the
three miniatures stolen from the Royal Academy at Burlington House on a
recent Saturday morning have been
returned and are now plaoed in the
exhibition, saya a London paper.
Tha miniatures have returned but
the mystery remains. They came baok
lu two brown paper parcels, duly
been sealed, stamped, and addressed In
printed letters to "Tho Royal Academy
of Arts, London. Glass with care."
One parcel was delivered at 8.30 p.m.,
the other an hour later.
If evidence was needed to prove
that they really did come through tlie
post it night be found in the feet that
uie glass of one of tlio miniatures was
broken. But oilier clues beyond this

Is none, for the sender forgot to give

It ia clear, therefore, tliat the sender
it not anxious lo he thanked either
aa a penitent thief or as a public
benefactor, for In one or other o! these
roles he or she must appear.
The manner in whicli the portraits
were abstracted leaves no doubt
about the theft. When the doors ot
the Royal Academy wero opened to
the public on Saturday morning there
were displayed In a velvet-lined caso
with a glass top, three miniatures.
One was the portrait of Miss Mary
Anson Ferrer, in a while frock, another was a portrait ol Mrs. Westley
Richards In a lace fichu with n pink
rose, while the third was a portrait
of Mr. Ernest Crofts, RA. Tlie ease,
firmly eorewed to a slopping stand,
was in the water-color rooms, to
which thero are three entrances—one
to the refreshment room, another to
the black and while room, and Uie
third to another room leading to tiie
vestibule. The risk of discovery was,
therefore, threefold
