K.C.M.G.,  Etc., Premier   of  Canada, Ottawa:  Sir,���The members of this Trades and  ���~iabor"coaincirhave"6b"servedrwlth great  ���regret that In spite of the strong and  jiractteally unanimous feeling of the  entire people of this portion of Western Canada, and' In spite, also, of the  solemn pledges and promises given on  piddle platforms here not only ln your  town name, l>uit ulso Iby those closely  associated with you In the present administration���notably by the Hon. David Mills and the Hon. Mr. Fisher���the  recent session of the Dominion purlla-  -ment hns been allowed to come to a  dose without any effort being made to  atop thc lnlloiv of Chinese Immigration,  ���*t la not itoo much to say that the continued failure of the Dominion parliament to deal with this question has  caused a feeling of bitter disappointment to every working man ln "Western  Canada, and the failure seems the  border to understand and the more Inexplicable ln view of the  Unanimous Findings  of thc recent royal commlslson. We  BOte, of course, that the excuse ottered: ls that 'the people of Eastern  Canada are not yet sufficiently educated on the question, and' w�� are not only  ittrte to admit that there to some ele  ment ot truth in this, hut lt is ifor the  purpose of suggesting a plan whereby  such 'education may proceed more rap-  Idly ithat wo take the liberty -ot writing .you now as we do. Before proceeding ito speak of our plan, however, you  vrtll perhaps permit us to say that  wthen we are. told that the Ignorance ot.  Eastern Canadian people on the ques-1  tion ls the only obstacle In .the way of  ithe Introduction of legislation, on the'  subject, there are two : features about  ���the statement that give us consider-'  a'ble satisfaction. First, it is gratifying to see that at least some Canadian  Statesmen have at last made.up; tlielr  minds that so far as they ore concerned; they desire to see ."British Columbia  not merely or solely the  Temporary Halting Place  of a handful of selfrseeklng, dlvidend-  hunt'ng capitalists surrounded :by a  horde of semi-barbarians, the..Matter  practically slaves, absolutely, without  home life as Canadians know It, :and  not appearing to care ifor any, .but, on  the contrarry, thait tliey wish ito see  British Columbia settled and built up  by men of their own race, men' who  knowing something of the value of, and  the price that has been paid for, repre  sentatlve Institutions, live in decency  and comfont, together with tholr wives  and children, in-homes of'.their own  The latter, of course, is a condition of  affairs utterly foreign to a British Col-  umblan Chinaman, and it is, as we say  something to see that some .of our  Canadian statesmen at last xocognize  It; that they appear to-  , Recognize the Truth  of what was stated1 by a well-known  writer who preceded John "Ruskin, >but  whose sentiments appear to Ihave been  much the same, when he wrote: "The  produotion of man, and of man in his  best condition, is the physical .ultimatum of the earth; and any system  whatever that sacrifices the workmen  to the wonk, the man who produces the  wealth to the wealth produced, is a  monstrous system . . . based on' a  blasphemy against man's spiritual nature. . . .The system' of political  economy which molkes wealth, and not  man, the ultimatum, Is based on a fal  lacy so detestable that the wonder is  how accomplished, and otherwise ami  able men can be found as Its abettors���  the fallacy of talking the profits of cap  Italists as the measure of good and  evil, Instead of taking the condition  of the laborers as the sure Index of  the character of a system." Then, ln  the next place, it is gratifying also to  dbsenve,that none of the members 'tt  the government appear to have taken  any stock In' the  Kldlculous Fallacy  paraded with amazing gusto ait last  election time, namely, that anyone who  believes In free trade can never consistently advocate the restriction of  immigration.   That proposition seemed  VANCOUVER, B. CM SATURDAY, JUNE 7, 1902.  NO 11  Chinamen with whioh British Oolumnu.  ls at present afflicted Should also be  distributed proportionally over the  Dominion, and if we are told that this  would be a. costly undertaking1, wo'respectfully suggest that we should be  |;qulte prepared, nay, happy, to see some  of ithe surplus payments of customs  dues made by this province, and about  whioh the government of tihe province  has been writing you, devoted to the  purpose. We respectfully further suggest that the application of  The Remedy  we have Just outlined cannot be male  too soon, for if the difficulty Is slmlply  the education of the other provinces,  and Chinamen could be distributed! in  the way we suggest, then we feel) so  certain of the remedy proving effective,  that we do- not ihesltate to prophesy  that not another session of the Dominion parliament would be allowed to.go  past without the enactment of cither a  J500 poll tax, or, what would; be lnlfln-  itely more satisfactory/the enactment  of a law excluding Chinamen from the  Dominion altogether. Awaiting the favor of your reply, which, we hope will  be such as shall indicate the intention  of the government to liestow .the foregoing measure of even-handed .Justice  on the people of this -province.

People  in our neighboring towns and up the  coast In the mines nnd logging camps  should know, and know quickly, what  they may expect by coming to "Van  couver, and' the printing committee  should 'bear this In mind and give the  greatest publicity to.the proposed programme of sports and exercises.

Chris Foley on Politcs  His Views as to the Aims and Object of the Provincial Progressive Party���The Progressives at Different  Interior  Points ��� The  B. G. Socialist Party.  The Fishermen's union will hold  weekly meetings every Saturday until  the season'Is over.  at the time ito be so absurd as scaroe-  ly to require refutation, and yet there  are still men, otherwise sensible apparently, who Bay they believe it,. as If  there were, or. could be, any possible  connection between the free interchange of commodities, and the question of the choice of the human elements wlilch go to build up a state.  But, as we say, we are glad to observe  that you and your colleagues appear to  see this vital difference clearly; and all  that remains for us to do, therefore, Is  to make our promised suggestion with  a view to spurring on the education of  the people ln the east.  Our Suggestion  la a very simple one, but\,we think  would be likely In practice to prove remarkably effective. It is,, that by  means of an order-ln-councll, the gav-  triuuent should enact that Chinamen  may enter the Dominion only a/t one  port of entry, and that such port Should  fo Ottawa. We suggest, further, that  tha distribution from Ottawa of Chinamen over the Dominion should1 be allowed only in proportion to population,  each province receiving Its own quota.  We further suggest that   the   surplus  BARBERS MEET.  There was not a large attendance at  the meeting of the barbers' union on  Wednesday night. President Isaacs  was in the chair. The letter from the  executive of the Provincial Progressive  Party was laid over till next meeting.  A delegation from, the Walters and  Waitresses' Union asked the barbers  to support them In their difficulty with  the non-union concerns. They mention  the names of the fair and unfair restaurants, W. H. Johnston was granted a retiring card. The sum of Jii was  voted in favor of Omaha, Neb., to fight  the barber schools.  D. W.

JOHN PEARF.Y.  John Pearey ..Hirst saw the light of  day at the farm of iMIItonduir, Morayshire,   Scotland,   on Oct.  21,  1S42, ,and  was  educated  at  the Elgin academy.  He arrived  iu   the    county  of Bruce,  Out., in IS70, and left 'there in 1S77 for  the'Western States.  -After residing for  some little time in Iowa and Minnesota, he Joes,ted on, a farm for al,number.: of years in South Dakota, following' the' occupation  of    farming.

He was an unsuccess  fui democratic-candidate for the house  ofrepresentatives InVbhat famous Kel-  ly-Pearey contest, but    out   run    his  tioket. : He has been with the B. C.  Electric railway for 10 years, and is  one of the best iknown" and popular  conductors on  the  line.    He took an  active   part  in   the  formation  of  the  Railway Employees' union, and became  Its first ,president.   Up to a short time  ago he was a prominent member of the  local  Trades  and    Labor    council,. of  which  branch he had also served as  president and treasurer.   He has done  good .service in the cause of labor In  this city.   Among the most important  things he took a hand at .was the acquiring by the city of the False Cre3k  flats, the inost valuable of all the city's  properties.

The 'Miners' union of Nanalmo has  adopted a resolution endorsing'the action ot the Trades and Labor Council  of that city In asking the members of  parliament representing Nanalmo city,  and North and South Nanalmo, to ask  the government to nppolnt a royal  commission to enquire Into the circumstances attending the disastrous  explosion at-'Fernle mines, and also Instructed the assistant secretary, Mr..  Shenton. to wait upon, or write to, the  three members' at as early a date as  possible and urge upon them the Importance of -securing the appointment  of the commission nnd to ask their assistance ln the matter.  In his remarks before the Provincial  Progressive Party organization meeting held last week at New Denver  Chris. Foley explained the alms, intents and purposes of the new party,  says tlie Ledge of that progressive  town. And while he did not pretend  to spealk for the party, he [gave his own  views on the: leading planks, and, be.  ing president of ithe party, his expres  sions therefore may he accepted as  party doctrine. Mr. Foley set out by  saying that the party leaders fully realized the obstacles that they had to  contend with. Many (people believed  that the Progressive party was entire  ''ly made up of union laborers whose  purpose was to seek to enact leglsla  tion favorable to them regardless of  the interests of capital and the bust  ness men. This, he contended, -was a  false position to take. ;.-It is the party's  aim, he said, to abstain from any radical or revolutionary legislation, believing that tihe maintenance of peace  and harmony between capital and labor would better serve the Interests of  all. He believed It was ithe duty of the  party 'to get the government to  Enforce the Laws  in favor of the workingman as well as  the laws for the capitalist. Looking at  the question in the light that he did,  he was unable to 'understand how any  unprejudiced man Wishing to see good  government could iflnd any reasonable  objection to the platform of the party.  He spoke on the land tax plank, and  contended that all men know, or ought  to know, that the gradual abolishment  of all taxes on ithe producer should be  brought about and that land monopoly  should'be'broken up. He did not have  to go outside of this province for object lessons showing the curse of land  monopoly. .In East Kootenay vast  stretches of. the most fertile farming  land, capable of supporting a population of 40,000 ito 50,000, were held by one  or two men, who did little or nothing  to contribute to the happiness and  prosperity either of themselves or the  general public. If a reasonable 'tax  were levied upon these .millions of  acres of idle land, it would be the  means of forcing them open to settlement,7 and the fertile valleys, now unproductive, would support a vast number of families in prosperity and contentment.   On the question of  Government Ownership  of railroads, telegraphs, etc:, Mr. Foley  presented no new argument, but devoted considerable time toy showing  how the laborers of Canada and the  business,men were being kept down by  the C P. R., in reducing the wage scale  and charging excessive freight rates.  He believed If the people, through the  government, contributed to the building of railroads, by bonusing thein  with cash and land subsidies, then the  people should own and operate them.  As to the socialistic features of the  platform, 'Mr. Foley did not attempt to  excuse or qualify... He pointed to the  pubjlc_owne_rship_o_f_sj:reets1_i-oads,_etc.,  aind contended that if It were to the  Interest of all for these things to be  kepi In the hands of the government,  tt would he '"beneficial to all if public  ownership were extended to the railroads and telegraph. Mr. Foley was  opposed to strikes and the boycott as  a means of settling disputes between  employer and employee. He believed  that such matters should be settled Dy  Arbitration.    "  stores and compelling employees to buy,  therefrom. In summing up, the speaker said the laDoring man must use the  ballot to accomplish his ends. All  unions should enter into politics; discuss political issues in and out of the  lodge room. . ., ^jc.  A local branch of the Provincial Pro-,  gresslve Party was formed at Silver-  ton, B. C, on May 24, with an Initial  membership of fourteen voters, which:  will be very considerably increased  in the immediate future. The following  'are the temporary officers: President,  Percy W. Johnston; secretary, John C.  Tyrue;'" treasurer, Gerald Gardiner.    ,-;  PROGRESSIVE PARTY.  It is sometimes asiked, but surely;  by people who have neither travelled  nor have been observant of the trend  of. affairs within the empire,.'what'is  the use of a labor party, what good  could it accomplish, would It not have  the infallible effect of driving; away;  capital? Taking the last query first,  is it not the setting up of a bogey, the  existence of which has 'been disproven  again and again? If there is one country which Is typical of tlie labor party,  It" is New Zealanad. A reference to  the columns of any flnanlcal or metropolitan, paper will soon show that  capital is cheaper In New Zealand and  investments command a higher premium than in this country, and the figures compare favorably with any part  of the empire. A further reference to  tables,of statistics:such as are given  In the imperial year books and condensed .i In Whi-talcer's , Almanac, will  show that'the trade of the country is  three times that of Canada, per capita.  A     reference    to   Australia,    another)'  country popularly supposed to-be labor\  ridden, will show.exactly the same condition of affairs. As to the good it can  accomplish, It is sufficiently answered  by referring any person who knows or. '  thinks lie knows/7 to the condition of  the Antipodean colonies some ten years  ago before the progressive parties of  those colonies were in existence, and  their condition to-day. And that also  answers the first query. If these things  can be accormplished elsewhere, they  can be here, and what is more, they  will before some of the local and provincial quidnuncs have stopped rubbing  their sleepy eyes and scornfully asking  how? The facts are .easily to he verified. When critics of the Provincial  Progressive'Party will enquire into  them for, themselves, they will probably  join its ranks.���Rossland World.  The machinists' lodge a Revelstoke  held a smoking concert Saturday night  in honor of their delegate, James Webster, who has just returned from Winnipeg. After songs, speeches, etc., Mr.  Webster was called forward and presented with an address nnd a handsome clodk.

He was sure that It would be better  ���for all classes If nil disputes affecting  great numbers were settled amicably  nnd without a feeling of bitterness be-  lnsr aroused. When laboring men place  a plank of (his iklnd'ln their platform  he thought it showed that they are  doing their part to bring about and  maintain amicable relationship between themselves and capital. On the  questions of Oriental Immigration, woman suffrage, free transportation to  men-bers of the legislature, and the  truck act, Mr. Foley presented argument that has been accepted by nil  .parties In B.

Following appears in current issue of  Citizen, andi  Country  of  Toronto:    A;  number of enquiries have been received  as  to  the  attitude  to  be  adopted  by,  members and locals towards the newly-  formed Progressive Party, and the executive committee think it advisable to  make  the  following    statement:    Any  oit tempt of any local  to officially ..endorse the platform of the Progressive  -Party would-be entirely-unooiistitution--  al, as section 14 of constitution state3  that the   British   Columbia   Socialist  Party shall not endorse or fuse with  any other party unless it has substantially the same principles.    The  Progressive Party deliberately rejected all  that was vital in ourplatl'orni; therefore, that party ls no more entitled to  special consideration at our hands than  either   the   Liberals   or  Conservatives.  The executive    recommends    nil loyal  members to stand Jinn'for socialism, to  continued  to pursue-  lhelr liropiiganda  of education    nnd    organization,  and  i wherever possible to nominate candidates pledged  to work for the collective ownership of all  the    means of  wealth production and complete abolition of-the wage system.    The executive does not presume to dictate what  should    be   the   Individual   action   of  members  In  constituencies    where no  socialist   candidates    are    nominated,  each member being then at liberty to  use his own judgment as to how best  he can advance the realization of socialist principles.

"And as sho had  no ono but mo to chaperon'-her, - she  had to como whore I camo."

Her complexion was more.olive  than fair, but Forney bad 'observed,  that she had a way of blushing dooiily  on occasions. Sho scorned to be a dull  littlo thing. In the two days during  winch he had sat at; tho table, with  hor, ho hadiSoarcoly-learned the souiul7  of her voico or discovered tho color  of her constantly downcast oyos.

Ho turned again to Miss Halo. Sho,  too, seemed not. at nil disturbed by  hor aunt's want .of courtesy. Ho had  once or twico thought, hor manner to  silent littlo -Miss Rankin somewhat  unnecessarily formal. Miss Rankin  was evidently from a different social  world, of courso���tho simplicity nnd  iiioxpensiveness of hor wav of dressing, no less than hor vory retiring  maimers, indicated that; but he hoped  Miss Hale did not share hor aunt's  evident snobbishness.  "So, Miss Hale, you mean to "disclaim my praise of your unselfishness?" ho asked. "Thon you add tho  virtue of honesty to your gonorous  self-sacrifice. You are quito right in  denying that you wero wholly disinterested in your aunt's cause, .fori  am inclined to hold that mortals are  not quite capable of absolute altruism."  ���'Oh!''  .Th^LJoWu _Jjrcotjilessy   exclamation  camo from tliiTfoot df~tho tabic and  drew tho attention of all of thorn upon  Miss Rankin. Hor eyes woro fixed  with a troubled look upon Forney,  and a sensitive flush had como- to hor  face.  "Do you really moan it?"  "Mean what?" ho nskod, puzzled  by a certain intensity in hor expression, for which ho snw no occasion.  "That mankind is not quite capabloof  absolute unselfishness? Yes. I think  I mean it." *  "I nm afrnid it is truo," sho said,  sadly, and bout hor oyos ngniii' upon  hor pinto; but ho saw .that hor lips  were quivering.  "Of courso it is truo," affirmed  Miss Hnlo.   'L know I'm selfish.' "  ''My futlior used to sny," asserted  Miss Matthews, "that young peoplo  in his dny were a great deal moro unselfish and considornto towards tlieir  elders than thoy nro in modern times.  My father said that in his father's  nrosonco ho never spoke without first  being spokou to���never.  Miss Matthwes wns very much  given, to airing tho infalliblo opinions of "My Fnthor," and Forney had  already mentally christened tho old  goutlomau "Sir Oracle."  "Do you go in for tho modern fad?"  ho askod Miss Hale. "Associated  charities, college settlement, and all  that?"  "No," sho said, drearily, ' "I have  not time.    Such things bore mo so!"  "To what great lifo work do you  devote your timo, thon I Shining in  socioy?" .  "I don't know about the shining.

Florcnco smiled nnd Miss Mntthows  laughed out rather noisily.  "My Father always said that nothing wns so bnd for tho poor ns promiscuous charity."  "Wns ho a Political Economist?"  Forney asked, without smiling  "Ho was a lawyer.

"Why. Florence, I am snro yon  know ho, said next Sunday; but ho  novcr does keep his word about such  things���he is so busy. Now, My  Father nevor broke a promise of that  kind.

I'm sure I don't see What good it  does them."  "Thoso of tho upper crust of society, " ho answered thoughtfully,  "lack rcortain experiences of lifo  necessary to making them absolutely  woll bred. I often think that tho bost  bred peoplo are not at all those of the  extromo 'inner circles.' Theso need  tho broadening oxporieneo of rubbing  against othor classes than thoir own.  That largo-ininded sympathy that culture which has learned to seo beyond  class distinction, can como only by  real contact with other classes than  one's own. Thoso of tho inner circles  novor have, a chance of getting this  education. One can hardly blame  them, thon, for somotimes being  somewhat narrow in thoir sympathies.  Tho slumming now so fashionable is  going to bo educative. I think, so far  as tho philanthropists are concornod."  Florence listenod with rathor forced  attention. -"Really," sho said with  a sigh, "you tnke things awfully seriously, don't you? Now do yon kuow  I never bother about .things; I think  I have a much better time than if I  did."  Something led him to turn his bond,  nnd ho found Miss Rankin's eyes  fixed upoii him with an earnestness  that surprised him. But Miss Matt-  howB claimed his attention.  "Do you know." she said, "I really  suspect you, Dr. Forney, of .being a  little like Phillips Brooks in one  way."      ���...,,;  "I cannot possibly deservo the compliment.   In what way is it?"  "Well, your lack of sympathy in  some things. Mr. Brooks, you.know,  was really a verv unsympathetic  man." ...  "I nover thought so,'' Fornoy ventured to object.  "Oh, yos, indeed 1 Very! Whon I  lived in Boston, beforo Florenco's  mother died, I used to have a pow in  Trinity; but.' I gave it up, boennso  really when Mr. Brooks' preaching  drew such : crowds nnd crowds of  strangers, Trinity Church did not and  could not seem liko homo to mo any  longer. Fancy never being ablo to  glance about you iu church without  seeing on nil sides ofyou strangers  whom nobody knew, and whoni you  never met anywhere���why, it was perfectly uncomfortable nnd forlorn!

Forney's face during this recital  gathered an expression of depression.  "Yes," Florence responded, "Mr.  Brooks' church grow quito common  when ho became so popnlar. For my  part, I think the rabble ought not to  bo admitted where nice poople go."  . Instinctively ho ngain glanced from  hor to Miss Rankin. But tho girl  did not appear to bo listening.

Now there wore 20 of them,  and Lord Grey expressed the hope  to have one in every county in ICng-  lnnd. No complaints had been heard,  and the magistrates spoke well of  them.  The two main ideas of tho trust  aro. His Lordship explained, the abolition of thc element of private gain  and freedom from tho control of the  brewers. These are, in his view, the  two chief evils of the trafllc. Because  of the Iirst lt is to thc interest of  tho publican to make drunkards of  the community in which he keeps.  The second is responsible for the selling of bad liquor. The system which  goes under tho name of "tied houses"  is unknown here. Brewers get control  of ns mnny inns as they are able,  and then confine, these inns to selling  lic|iiors made only at their breweries.  This restricts the choice of the customer as to what liquor he .shall  drink, and docs not tend to secure  the bust in the market.  In tho public house trust     houses  the first evil  is eombatted     by     the  employment of a paid manager, who  hns no interest in increasing the sale  of intoxicants.    On the contrary,   he  bus an interest in increasing the sale  of non-intoxicants.   He  receives       a  fixed salary, and besides that a percentage on the sales of non-alcoiiol-  ics.   In reply to a question at.      the  close of his talk, Earl Grey admitted  that the greatest difficulty was      to  obtain proper managers, lie'thought,  , however, that they hnd provided safely against corruption.   Every      man  who    was    appointed manager must  put up security, nnd in case of maladministration this security was   retained.   The brewers,  too.  who were  those     likely  to try bribery,      were  warned that if they were caught   offering a manager a commission     on  the salo of their brands they woiild  bo struck straight off the order list.  They would eventually have 'a highly-paid class of civil servants;      .    '  'Phc Earl described thc steps taken  to     form a public houso trust.       A  private conference  was held.     First  a resolution was passed to form the  trust; then a committee formed     10  secure a board of directors. To these  directors would fall the task of    so-  -ciii'ing-a-suitablo-mniiiigcr���Dbluining-  the license,  building the public house  or remodeling the old one, und- looking generally after its management.  Their object was to  improve      upon  the privately-owned public bouse, and  therefore,  unless they bought  oiit a  license, they preferred to build    llieir  own house, especially as the building  designed     for  the  ordinary      public  house was not best adapted for their  purpose.   Thc     capital     wns usually  subscribed  by  those promoting   it���  thiit was a comparatively easy mnt-  tci���nnd 5  per cent,  dividend      wns  pnld upon it.   This was a first charge  on the net revenue. The rest,    after  11 certain per cent, wus set   aside ns  reserve,  wont into  the hands of trustees, who expended it for the benellt  of  the  community���tho  only  restriction being tlint. none of it wns to go  to reduce tho rntes.  His Lordship was asked to justify  this exception, nnd snld Mint in Norway nnd Sweden a natural desire to  lighten tho rates had caused a great  deal of excessive drinking on the  part of patriotic citizens.  In .financing! Enrl Grey expressed  the view that debentures would be n  bettor .form than shares. In timo the  reserve'fund would equnl tho capital  invested, nnd it wns then the object  of the trust to buy out the shareholders, to have the house cv. rlenr  asset, and to set aside thn whole income for public-improvements. ln  that case it would bo found easier to  pny oil debentures thnn to buy out  ���tockholders.

Immediately she seized a silver nxe  and severed the rope which released  the weights holding the Meteor. 'I'he  vessel went gracefully into llie water.  The Prince handed a bouquet, to Miss  Roosevelt, and then, raising his hat,  in 11 few words acknowledged the  cheering of those on the main platform.  Familiar Name*.

He hns always followed  the simplest methods in his our-of-  door life, carrying no impediments  in the shape of camp furniture, his  habit being to go light and live  oil the country. Where fish or  game was not to be had he has  subsisted on Iho plain common  food of tho voyageur, and taken  no alcoholic drinks. He is up to  all sorts of expedinienis in emergencies, and docs not believe in "ncci-  djiits" and misadventures, and has  nover.had any, because he knows  how to avoid them. . "Old campaigners of tliis ilk," snys the writer, "never think of exploiting tlieir.  sufferings and hairbreadth escapes as  evidences of heroism worthy of plaudit. On the contrary, tliey would  be mortified to admit them. These  recitals might impress the home  members of travel clubs, but to my  own mind, to glory in what one has  suffered through inexperience or  awkwardness would seem to be about  as sensible as to boast how ninny  rod tips a man had broken in a  season on a salmon stream, as evidence of prowess in handling big  fish."  In 1857, at thc age of fifteen, Dr.  Bell began his scientific career by  becoming connected with the Geological Survey under the late  Sir XV. E. Logan, and served for  three years as assistant to thc  principal members of thc staff. Sinco  1860 ho has served continuously as  head of parties in tho same work.  It would take more space than is at  our disposal to enumerate thc surveys which Dr. Boll has to his credit in the department in practically every part of the great nortIi7  land. Nor have his services to  science been rendered exclusively as  a surveyor. Dr. Bell was on all the  steamship expeditions sent out b.v  the Canadian Government to Hudson Strait and Bay. In addition to  his duties as geological nnd naturalist, he was medical officer on the  Neptune and Alert expeditions, but  on the Diana expedition of 3S07 he  wns obliged to leave the ship  order to make his surveys by means  of a yacht nnd boat, so that it became necessary to take out nnother  medical man.  . At the close of his field operations  in 1880 he sailed by the Hudson  _Bay_Compnny_'s-bnrc|Uo-Oce;u!-Ny!iiph  from York Factory, on the west  side of tiie bay, to London. and  had a long and very stormy vov-  ago. He has passed throiieh Hudson Strait nine different times, and  having studied the nnvigabiliiy of  these waiters, is considered 1111 authority on this subject.  On account of the length of time  ho has devoted to the work, together'with the fact that the expenses were defrayed by the Government, rind with a great capacity  for physical endurance, Dr. I'.ell hns  been enabled to accomplish a  greater amount of geographical nnd  geological work thnn nny other  mnn in America, or probably in nny  other country. As most of this  work was in heretofore unl-no'.vn legions, without many iPstiiu'tive  names, he has been obliged to give  a vast number "of such names ns a  necessity for the sake uf identification and description. Mr. Georgo  Johnson, the official Dominion statistician, who has paid great attention to this matter, calls him  the principal place-name father of  Canada.

In buying an oilcloth for a floor  endeavor to obtain one that was  manufactured several years before,  as thc longer it has been made previous to use, the better ii will wear,  from thc paint becoming hnrd nnd  durable. An oilcloth that has been  made within the year is scarcely  worth buying, as the paint will bo  defaced in a. very little time, it  requiring a long while to season.  An oilcloth should never be scrubbed  -with-a-brtish-biit-"-tifter being���first-  swept il should be cleaned b.v washing with a large soft cloth nnd lukewarm or cold water.

A DOG BY HIS POINTS  IMPORTANT   QUALITIES   POSSESSED  BY PRIZE-WINNING CANINES.

The judging of a dog is simple enough as a general theory, but most  dilllcull in correct practice. It is natural that the public ut large should  understand little about it, as the  breeding of fine dogs cither for love  of the animal or as a business is  limited to  the couipni'utlvc few.  The avcrugo owner of a dog does  not know the points of value in his  animal, it is safe to sny, although  this is not true in tho case of any  one at nil who pretends to bo a dog  fancier.  When wo speak of judging a clog  by bis points, we speak the literal  truth. That a dog should be pleasing to the eye is of less importance  to the judge than to the ordinary  visitor to tlie show. "Tlie homeliest  bulldog nlwnys gets the 'prize," you  have heard repented again and again.  The prize winner i& nol the homeliest  to the judge. He represents most  truly thoso points which arc necessary to milking the best bulldog for  the purposes for which a bulldog is  intended.  Every dog may ho said to have  some purpose. The mastiff is n.  watchdog, the setter is a hunter, the  King Charles spaniel a toy, the  conch dog is, or rather, was, an ornament to a coach and team; therefore, when the judge considers an  exhibit he gives 1 he most importance  to thc points which specially suit  llie dog for his purpose. So it can  readily be seen that, while the one  part may bo of great importance in  one dog, it is of vory littic importance in another.  Stonehenge is the Blackslonc of  dog judging. To show how detailed  are the points to be considered in  tho judging of a greyhound, for instance, here is a small portion of  whnt he says:  "The beainlike back is all important, for without strength in this department, though high speed mny be  obtained  for a short distance,  il   is  HEAD-I  fiECK*  CHEST  FonEGUMnt^  K.M   Tho Viilriilin" "f th��  Vi-nr.

There  is a long muscle which runs from thc  hips forward to bo attached to the  angles of the ribs, and this, if well  developed, gives great power in turning, so that it is an essential point,  and upon" the size of it the squareness' mainly depends. Without width  of hip no back can be strong, since  thc muscles have no possibility of  attachment in sufficient breadth, and  the same may be said of the ribs.  "In examining, therefore, a dog  out of condition the experienced eye  often detects the probability of the  future development of a good back,  even though there is no appearance  of muscle at the time, because, the  bones being of good size and breadth,  there is overy reason to expect, with  health, exercise nnd good- feeding,'  that they will be covered by their  usual moving powers and will then  show ihe substance which is. desired.  "It is also desired to have depth of  back from above downward, by  which the whole body is 'buckled and  unbuckled' with quickness and power, us is required in ihe gallop. The  muscles of the abdomen may draw  the chest toward the hind legs powerfully, but the action is too slow,  and for quick contraction thoso of  the under side of the back arc essential.  "By the 'side' is to be understood  the chest, which is composed of two  sides combined. The beamlikc form  of this part depends upon the width  of the angles of the ribs where they  .curve _townrd_t he _bnckbone_nnd_up-  on which, as I be tore observed, the  size of the back depends. Very round  ribs, like a barrel, are not so desirable as the squared form which 1  have alluded to because of several  anatomical reasons.  "Great depth of chest is apt to prevent tho dog stooping on .rough  ground, as ho strikes it against  ridges or large stones, but a moderately deep chest is a valuable point,  giving plenty pf 'bellows, room,' ns  il is popularly called. This, however,  is provided fur belter by breadth  than by depth, nnd the former should  bo insisted upon more than Mio latter, provided .there is not Mint round,  l.ublike form of the ribs whicli inter-  fores with thc action of the shoulder  blades and often accompanies low  breeding."

Of Lady Cartwright  there is little to be said, yet ia  that is 11 life of devotion to her hus-  bnnd'aiid family rarely seen. Sho hns  not been fond of the glare of society, nor the many empty follies of social life, but while her husband has  been engaged in the fierce political  struggles of nearly forty years, taking a lending part in momentous  events which to ninny are now but  matters of history, Lady Cartwright  LADY CAI'.TWKIGIIT.  has made home a sweet retreat tax  removed from the turmoils of public  life.

To the Editor ol The Indkpknoent.  Sir,���As you have always taken an interest in sporting matters In this city  and have helped our club on one or two  occasions, don't you think the city  should build a gymnasium? I have  attended the public schools here and  am sorry lo sny 1 never saw n. gymnasium, but I have rend lots about them  and have been told quite a bit by some  of the'boys who have seen gymnasiums  at Toronto and Seattle. Last winter  when 1 was not home at nights 1 either  went to the show In the Savoy or played pool. TMs costs money���more than  1 should spend. .My father Is n union  man, but be says the unions havo too  much to look nfter without bothering  about gymnasiums.

C: Your  telegram eigihth, cannot decide so important matter oft hand without Information.   If Immediate answer is asked  Late advices from Dawson say that  on the creeks the cheap 53.S0 and $4  concerns, with rotten food, thrown in,  have 'had a peck of trouble. The food  outrage assumed the greatest propor  tlons on the Anglo-Klondike works on  Fox gulch. The boys struck for belter  food and more pay a fortnight ago.  Several returned to work without the  entire crew, and those .who -were let  out were not paid only by a "timo  check," subject to ten per cent, discount. Big Alex's men -went out on  Chechako hill, and  In uli about  A Score of Strikes  took .place. The going wages now ar2  fixed ml SO cents per hour. The union  organized at the Forks is supported  by practically every working miner on  the creeks. When any man strikes or  gets laid off now his $50 or $100 is not  blown over the tables in a few minutes, and he can eat and drink for  several days. "Everybody ibut tinhorns and boosters now have money at  the Forks," adds the -Klondike Miner,  "and except for the bunco boys, times  were never better at this season of tbe  year." Except for the labor troubles at  King Solomon's hill, Monte Cristo, Fox,  American nnd -Magnet  The Wasli Up  at these places Is Indeed a happy season. On American Dr. Carper's  exclusive water right is causing much  hard feeling and several dumps will re-  mnln unwashed this season on this account. Upper Bonanza'has put almost  nil wages up to SO cents per hour, and  tihe balance will likely be forced up at  oi.-ie. Probably the, most bare-faced  s:oal ever perpetrated upon labor is  thc nresent juggling in gold dust that  is 'be.'ng attempted to pay men st ?1G  per-o,ince-duslr good_nowhere���taken  nt $15, and In addition subject to 2 U-2  per cent, discount al the bank for royalty. Is about as grent an injustice as  labor was ever forced to endure. At  no time In the history of the creeks  have oo many men had money for so  long.  CARPENTERS AND JOINETRB. ���  The '2nd annual report of thc Amalgamated Society of Carpenters and  Joiners has just been Issued by the  general secretnry, Mr. F.

The number of new members enrolled  was 9,f>6S, and the total membership Is  now G7.01S, 'being a net Increase on th-j  year of 2.00C. The receipts amounted  to ��163,930, or .C5,MG above the previous year. The expenditure reached  a total of .ClSG,:tC2, or ��31.427 more than  was required In 1900. The cash balance at the close of tho year amounted  to .CISl.GGfi.

Mr. Lionel Yorke,    of the   citizens'  gymnasium      committee,      wrote    the  Trades and Labor Council, asking that  It be represented by u provisional director in accordance with the provisions  of the memorandum submitted.     That  when the respective names of the various representatives have been received  a meeting would   be  called   to  decide  on future action.     As was pointed out,  thc proposal is to .build a public gymnasium,  subject,   ot  course,   to proper  rules and regulations.      There are in  the city quite a large number of young  men who have no opportunity of proper  exercise    during    the    winter months.  There are about 400 active members in  the  various athletic clubs ot the city  who would also lie benefited by a gymnasium.      There   are   about  lf>0  high  school pupils whom gymnastic training  would   benefit.      There  are   some   200  boys in  private schools,  as well as a  large number of others, wlio would like  to spend an hour or so nt the city gymnasium,    and   the    town    is  growing.  Therefore, none will deny that a public  gymnasium' is desirable; In  fact, it is  necessary.     The matter then  resolves  Itself, where should It be located, and  how should  the money be raised, and  how much will    it cost?     These    are  questions that cannot be answered offhand,  and need  careful  consideration";  The  young anen   themselves ihave  not  the money to build it, nnd so the matter  rests  with   the  public.      Several     attempts have been made by representatives opolnted by the different  clubs  at  various times to establish a gymnasium,  but up  to  the .present  all  have failed.      The   temporary   committee   this  time have asked the co-operation of the  City Council,  the Board of Trade, the  Trades and Labor Council, the Board  of School Trustees, and the Brockton  Point Amateur Athletic Club,   Iv appointing one provisional director each,  to  give  legal   status   to   the   club,   or  company,   as   it   ls   called,   so   it   will  bo   enabled   to    deal   .with     the    citv  council.     Unfortunately,     the     using  of     the     word     company     has    raised    hostilities    in     certain      quarte.-s  against the proposed gymnasium',  because it Is thought that the thing would  be run by a ring and valuable property  alienated from.thecitizens.     The permanent board of management' Is to be  elected by t'he shareholders of the conn-  pany, or, in other words, by the members   of the   gymnasium   club.     With  these suggestions of the committee (for,  after  all,   they  are  only   suggestions)  carried out, a necleus of a. live and self-  supporting gymnasium would be formed.      The  committee,  after  very  matured   consideration,  ihave  approached  the City Council for a site of 100 by 100  feet In the north-east corner of Cambie  street grounds,  and $2,500.      The bal  ance of the money required will be raised by subscriptions    and   membership  fees.

EOTAL MINT IN CANADA.  The establishment of a royal mint  in Canrda makes the fourth branch of  the English mint in operation outside  of London. The other three branches  are located in Australia, at Melbourne,  Sydney and Perth respectively. According to published returns, the value  of the gold coin output from .these four  mints during 1S09 was, as follows: The  Royal mint, London, $42,eai,655; Melbourne, *2S,138,833; Sydney, $16,620,000;  Penh, $3,458,530.

The girl wage earner lends, us a rule,  a comfortless life, whether she be an  Inmate of her home or a boarding  house in a strange place. After her toilsome day she needs the change that  can best be supplied by the woll appointed club.  This will doubtless appear a frivolous view to tnke of the proper use to  which the girl wage earner should put  her leisure hours, for it ls the custom  of thoso who Interest themselves in  the welfare of the girl to persuade her  to study after working hours. It is not  disputed that the knowledge may be  of advantage to her, but the criticism  here made is that the almost Invariable  programme offered to the girl is restricted to opportunity for Improving  her mind nnd rendering skillful her  fingers, these chances not bolng, ns is  the case with boys' organizations, one  of several features.  It is surprising that the charitably  disposed have not arrived at an understanding that recreation Is n legitimate  need of the girl nature. When one considers the prodigious amount of money  nnd time spent in providing the daughters of the rich with pleasure, It does  seem ns though women of position  would loug before this have made adequate provision for this requirement  of girl nature among the less fortunately placed. Is It not about time to  rest the boy club question anil take up  that of thc girl on a scale as large and  aB ambitious ns ever was planned for  the boy?���Vogue.  Object Lesson In Lt-Ids:.   A_m.other_o_\'_erheard her  nurseglrl  talking to the little child she was putting to sleep, and among other legends  of the nursery in which she Indulged  was this, "If you don't go right to  sleep this very minute, a great, big.  awful, black bear, with eyes like coals'  of lire nnd sharp, cruel teeth, will come  out from under the bed nnd e-n-t y-o-u  n-l-l u-p!" This poor little thing nestled  down under thc clothes to dream of  horrid hears eating her up.  That night when the stolid nurse hnd  composed herself In her own comfortable bed nnd hnd put the lamp out there  cnnie a.sudden tnp nt the door, and the  voice, of the "mistress'enlled loudly  through the panels: "Maggie. Maggie!  Get up ns quick ns you can. There's n  burglar under your bod!" At the word  "burglar" thc girl sprang screaming  from her bed. tore open the door and  fell Into hysterics In the hnll. The lesson wns more Instructive' than the mistress designed; but when the girl's  fciii'R luul cnimed she said to hor: "i'ou  did not hesitate to tell my little delicate clillil. who could not possibly  know Unit It was n Me. n cruel story of  a bear umler her bed Now. whi'ii I  treat yon to the sumo kind of stm-y you  nre nearly frightened to ilenili Tomorrow you can go Into the kitchen  nud work I here.

This would at  first soenrcruel niid'nrbitrary, but lt is  not as unreasonable as would appear.  it is vastly better for the baby to be  undressed and laid down in the crib,  with' a cool, fresh pillow under the  little head, to drop into a quiet sleep  than to be held in mother's warm arms  close against ber breast nnd rocked  for half an hour or more. With most  bnblcs n very little training will be  sufficient to Induce them to sleep when  laid down if tliey hnve never become  accustomed to the rocking. If you are  not Spartan quougli to leave the bnby  while ho Is vigorously protesting  against this procedure, sit by the crib  and gently pat him to sleep. After  awhile even this will not be necessary.  It Is not only better for the child, but  also for the mother, as the rocking  habll, if persisted In, soon becomes a  tax rather iliiin a pleasure.���Arthur W.

Tins nnd sockets for putting down  the ordlniiry Iloor- carpet are not new  nl nil. but tliey nre so useful that they  nre worth mentioning. The great utility of these Is tlmt the carpet can be  inken up with but little trouble for a  weekly slinking instead of sweeping if  one desires." The sockets nre driven into the lioor at regular Intervals around  thc room. The carpel Is put down, and  for each socket then' is a pin or brass  headed null which goes into It, holding  the carpet as lirmly In place as the ordinary tack. But with the pin and  socket there is no trouble in lifting it  again. The pins are replaced In the  sockets to keep tliem from tilling with  dust, and when the carpet is cleaned lt  can be put down again witli ease. Tho  pins nre sullicienfly long, two and  three-quarter inches, to hold the carpet  (irmly. In sonic houses hull carpets nre  put down wltliuut lining and taken up  frequently to be shaken.

It ls quite proper for a lady to grunt  a gonlleiiian's wish to correspond with  lilm, but it he hits not expressed such  n wish she Is subjecting herself lo erltl-  cisin'to open the correspondence.

The prettiest drapery for the back of  nn upright piano Is some rich stuff,  brocade or church embroidery or n  piece of not too gaudy eastern stulT.  Throw it ovcr the top of the piano and  let it fall straight over the back without rod or rings. If something thinner  is used, it should be hung, very slightly  fulled, on n line wire or rod that Is  made Invisible. In' the case of a simple  material lt is better to choose one not  too flowery, letting its purpose, tliat of  concealing the tiuflnislied back, be freely seen. A low backed sofa or a table  may stand In front of the piano, preferably ' the latter, ns a sofa frame  against the back is apt to pull and disarrange the drapery, while the uso of  the piano Itself as a seat back may interfere with the sound if not actually  injure the instrument. A square piano  Is bi'tter undraped unless a particularly  choice piece of rare stuff ls owned.  l.nnllir:.  Apropos of lamps in general. It ls  well to exorcise some care In making  a selection from the general supply.  If Intended merely for ornament, the  round globes now so popular nre satisfactory, but for n library or reading  room tlie lamp should have a spreading  globe. Green Is recognized as thc best  color for tho eyes, while yellow or white  shades on reading lamps are most trying, nnd blue globes reflect a sickly  light that Is exceedingly unpleasant  Red shades nre effective If used with1  moderation and In thc right place, but  a preponderance of-this color is apt to  prove unsatisfactory. To get the best  results from lamps they must receive  daily care and be properly filled and  trimmed.  The l*IctnrrHf|iic FIrcplncc.  Tlie picturesque open Hies that blazed beneath mantels half a century ngo  nre so thoroughly replaced by steam  coils and hot air registers that the pretty scene of the family gathered around  the grate is fast fading into obscurity.  The nearest one comes to uniting It today is the gas grate or nt best the grate  lire built of coal. Although the modern  methods of heating the home are superlatively convenient, in one sense tho  passing of the open fire is a pity. Nothing could be more cheerful, and it Is  said to be n great dispellcr of that malady known as the "blues." A nervous,  sensitive person finds a cheerful blazing fire something soothing and encouraging, something conducive to reverie  and consequently to meditation nnd  rest. Women in business life are beginning to realize this fact, and some  of tliem are having open grates put Into their rooms, where they may enjoy  the effects of the softly tuckering fire  those winter evenings after n day of  nerve racking toil in store, ollice or studio.���Detroit News-Tribune.  HOUSEHOLD HINTS.  Don't put damp towels and napkins  In the hamper. Dry them first or they  \yill mildew. '  A writer says equal parts of vinegar  and paraffin oil make a better polish  for a piano than liny furniture cream.  Crockery ornamented with gilt bands  or figures should be washed quickly  and drained dry, never wiped, evcii  with a soft cloth.

It would bo safer to have  the arms, feet, hands and legs warmly  Incased in double thicknesses of woolen flannel, with nothing whatever upon  the body but an ordinary nightgown,  In the autumn. It is especially important to keep tho cxlrclnitics of children  nnd infants warm for every second of  their existence. Whether n child is ill  or well, when the hands nnd feet begin  to get cold it Is nenring the grave, because the blood retreats to the inner  organs, oppresses them, causing painful nnd dangerous congestion and Inflammation, which often induce death  In a few hours, as In croup, diphtheria,  quinsy and the like. A young mother  should never go to bed until she has  noticed that the foot of her sleeping  little ones are perfectly warm. To be  assured of that Is to know that croup  before morning is impossible.���Family  Doctor.

Consequently the notion of a pin ls abhorrent. It is untidy. The dressmaker  has not done her work properly. She  has boon paid for something for which  she has not given full value.  As to millinery, look at the French  hats. The Paris milliners "blow" them  together, and there ls no doubt that the  stitching will not endure or last long.  Consequently foreign dressing can only  be appreciated by the exclusive few-  Just those dear, fascinating women  wlio understand not only the art of  dressing, but the nrt of putting on their  clothes, wherein the grent mystery lies.  They will have a supreme cut, but the  folds and the hundred and one little  mysteries of lace, chiffon, etc., will be  left to thoir poetic genius, assisted by  pins of various shape, size and design.  Willi the use of the pin we get variety,  while In the solidity of thread and'needle it is hardly ever to be found. Women should recollect that In the sordid  actuality of dress there is neither art  nor bi'iuily. Style is Infinitely, more difficult to procure than fashion. Ono Is a  triumph of the mind; the other is always procurable with gold. No other  attribute is so necessary to those who  wish to be well dressed ns good style,  but it Is generally Inherent and only  to be found In the woman who possesses Imagination and 'can therefore  rise above mediocrity, i'on can call it  chic if you like, but neither stylo nor  cliie can bo obtained In present day  dressing without the aid of tho despised pin.���St. Louis Star.

This is the case from  the top to the bottom of society, from  the artisan to the tradesman, from the  trndi'sniiui to the financier and from  the financier to the aristocrat. On the  amount of the dowry depends the fucil-  ity of marriage.  A girl without n dowry finds no appreciation for her Intelligence, culture,  force of character or even frequently  beauty, however great, if she ennnot  bring her husband sufficient money to  meet her own expenses, thus enabling  u man after marriage, as during bachelorhood, to consider only his own selfish necessities.

There are many forms of heart disease, some of which manifest themselves hy symptoms which are misunderstood by the sufferer and ascribed to indigestion or some similar  cause, when the heart is really affected. The slightest derangement of  this important organ is extremely  dangerous. vIf at times the action of'  the pulse is too rapid and tho honrt  beats violently, resulting in a suffocating fooling, or,' if the heart seems  inclined to stop beating, the pulse  becomes slow, and you fool a faint  diz/.y sensation, you should take the  bost course in the world, and that is  to take Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for  Palo Pooplo. 'You will find that the  distiossing symptoms promptly disappear and that the heart at all  times acts normally. Mr. Adelard  Lavoii', St. Pacomc, Que., bears  strong testimony to the vnlue of  those pills in cases of heart trouble.  Ho says : "For three years I was  greatly troubled witli a weak heart  and in constant fear that my end  would como at any time. I placed  myself under a good doctor but did  not get tlie desired relief. In fact I  grow worse; thc least exertion would  ovcrconii' mc, and finally) I luul to  discontinue work. While in this condition a neighbor advised me Lo try  Dr. Williams' Fink Pills and ,1 procured a supply. They simply worked  wonders in my case ami when I had  used-six boxes I-was. again-enjoying  good health. I have had no sign of  the trouble since anil can chccrfully  recommend the pills to similar sufferers."  Blood troubles of all kinds arc also cured by these fninous pills. If  you suffer from headaches, dizziness,  languor, boils or skin diseases of any  kind, your blood is in an impure condition, and Dr. Williams' Pink Pills  are what you need. These pills nro  not a purgnt've ami thcrfore do not  weaken like medicines of that class.  They arc tonic in their nature untl  mnke new, rich, rod blood with ovory  do^e. thus restoring health nnd  strength to hopeless and despondent  sufferers.

At the present tlio quiin-  llties l.oing shipped from Argentina  urn showing larger than expected,  anil running somewhat larger than  lust year. Australian and Indian  .shipments are light, but from North  America, Russia and the Danube they  arc liberal, and the amount on passage lo Europe Is very large anil  shows no decrease from week to  week. This causes tho European  truile to remain indifferent and thoy  arc working in u hand to mouth  fashion, not anxious to buy ahead as  freely, as they would do if they were  sure of a scarcity in the future.  lu the local market Manitoba wlieat  has boon steady, but not active.

This restaurant employee  stood on the sidewalk for a few moments nnd gazed admiringly at his  house and thon at its respectable  neighbors. For many years he has  boon connected with a certain New  York restaurant as an attendant, and  his foes have been gonorous. He knew  all its patrons by namo, anil his politeness niul eagerness to render sorvico  have made him well liked. Wondering  ~ll'"tlils"rostaurant"nttciiil:iiit,-wliuiH-hu-  knew only by his Iirst namo, could by  nny possibility have rented a house on  that street, the old resident came out to  satisfy his curiosity.

I have just  bought it because I think that my family will liko this neighborhood.

This Illustration Is given to show  how near the lines of subsistence wages  arc, nnd It will also convince the most  stubborn that the cost of living must  necessnrlly govern the wages paid labor  under the present conditions. Is It to  tnke many more centuries of oppression to reverse these conditions, or will  labor nwaken to Its o^yn sense of Jus-  tlco and get what ll is entitled to? It  seems remarkable that the workers of  tho world huve submitted to these .unfair conditions so long.
