C, SATUKDAY, JULY 12, 1902.  NO 16  IN DEFENCE OF ARB1TIUTI0N  To tlio Editor ol Tin: Inukpkndknt:  Sir,���As a peaceable- settlement br  tween the C. I*. It. olllclats and their  roaintenance-of-wny men was effccteil  without a strike or any inconvenience  being caused to the .public, I supposed  that all good citizens would be proud of  it, and that it would be unnecessary for  ine to again refer to the matter through  the press; but u.s tho olliclals of thc  ���p. 11. and myself have 'been placed in a  Xalse position by unreliable and meddle  eome newspaper men, I feel constrained  to offer an explanation to the people  ���at Canada.  Ijast summer, when the officials ol the  tX P. R. Cowpany and the malntenancj-  ��f-way men's representatives made a  ���compromise, which caused the strike to  ������be declared off, unreliable newspaper  men in thc States published reports to  the effect that the maintenance-of-wuy  men's committee on the C. P. II. Rail-  ��� way disregarded the advice of the president of their organisation and thut a  0 satisfactory settlement had heen effected through the representatives of the  general chairmen of the other orders.  The New York Herald of June 27, 1902.  .published' a cock-and-bull story to the  effect that I refused an offer of a permanent position from the C. P. It.  Company, together with a bonus of $i\-  OOO. The Montreal Dally Herald, acting In concert vvith the New York Herald, on the same day made the following assertion: "It is stated It Is not  ���uncommon for him (meaning. Wilson)  Lo make similar statements to his constituents in St. .Louis, whenever he returns from a labor campaign' against a.  railway company." This Is not tho llrst  time the Montreal Herald has shown It-  eclf to bo unfriendly to organised labor.  During the trackmen's strJke last summer, while their headquarters were it  tlie Grand Union Hotel, Montreal, 'a  drunken, crazy woman created a general disturbance by breaking the plat.--  jglass window In front of the hotel. The  next day, the Montreal Herald, In ais  attempt to humiliate the trackmen's le-  .prcscntatlves, staled, .when referring to  the matter, that the unruly woman'wns  supposed to ibe the wife of one" of the  trackmen's representatives.  Although a party called on the trackmen's representatives in  Montreal last  summer and stated  that the C. P. R.  ,   -*     ...  Siad offered nie $100,000 to leave Canada,  .but that I had demanded $300,000, no'  rallwuy ofliclal with whom I have transacted any business since my connection -with the Riotherhood of Railway  Trackmen, 'has been guilty of offering  mo a bonus, a position or a bribe.  The minimum vva��e for section foremen and section men on the Eastern  Division of the C. P. It. was fixed' by  Chancellor Boyd, vvho acted as third arbitrator in the C. P. .R. arbitration. The  wages of all malntenance-of-wuy men  on the remainder of the system" was  fixed by Mr. !���'. P. Gutelius (the company's arbitiator) and myself. It is  ���unfair for anyone to attempt to pine-;  the lesponsibllity of making a settl  ment upon Chairman Wilkinson. The  responsibility rests vvith me, and It Is  not my policy to shirk my duties.  After reaching llie agreement, Mr. D.  MoNicoll, second vice-president ami  general manager, met us, reviewed the  ���work, and requested us to make t\\ o  slight changes In the teims of settlement; his request was compiled with.  I then requested him to confer a favor  upon the mainteniince-of-way  men on  people lu general, among- whom I have  many friends that 1 mu Justly proud  of.

A carrier 'Pigeon came -to Van Andx,  Texada, with a plug on its left le?,  marked, "M. L. H. 107-2." The bird Is  at a. slate coloi.  Tho Chinese employed on the Paoi.lc  Direct vvoiks quit work this week, two  months' wages ibeing due them.

A ���blue-eyed imp  Inslnuaitos thai then: was no time to  do so, as railway schemes took up  much, if not all, of the government  party's time.  The Van Anda mines are being pumped out under an Knglish company.  -Sinking will commence, and when 300  feet of depth has been -attained tha  levels vvill be opened up and e'xhulim-  tlon of ore commenced. The preliminary  work will occupy six or eight weeks  probably, before any demand for men  i.s made. The new company will -pay an  Uie 15th and lllst of oach month in  cash.    We wish them every success.  The ���workmen of Texuida approved ill  the platform of the Provincial Progressive Party.  There aire several choice proipentie."'  .under negotiation for sale, representing  large Interests, which if they culminate  will give the island a great impetus,  and add1 materially to the two ore  steam-carrlois now employed. The in-  uguraition of cash pay days is another  ,-atep In tlie right direction.  The Texada. Minors' union has paid  nearly $350 for sick benefits last quarter,  to its inem'bers.  The ibis baseball match of the year  took place on,June 30th���married men  vs. bachelors. After a haird ooirtested  Ught of two hours and-a hair the result wus: Married men, 23; bachelors,  IS. Another game Willi shortly be  played.  The workmen (white) -who (have held  on to the island, awaiting the development of the properties here, soon expect to iind full employment on the opening uj> of the closed down mines and  the new prospects.  The steamships Selkirk and Trader  are kept busy carrying ore to the 'state  of Washington, U. S. A.  KNOCKS THE PROGRESSIVES  The Canadian Socialist, of ithls city,  prints the following letter from Mr.  Eugene V. Debs, In Its current issue.  It Is -dated July 5th, at Spokane, Wash.:  "The trip I haive just concluded In  British Columbia was remarkable for  the largo attendance ml the several  meetings and ithe great cnthuslas.-n  which muuked She proceedings at cai h  point. The trouble vvas that the hall  capacity was Inadequate at almost evory meeting. In most places maiy  could noit be admitted for the want oi  loom. There has been a greajt ciumge  since my previous visit to the piovlnce  a. little over two years ago. '  "While an underourrent of opposition  waa felt. It really amounted to' litlb,  and did not get above the surface anywhere. The only ' thing  in H1I3 line I deem important  enough to mention Is the , Provincial Progressive Party, a middle class  movement, -wihlch proposes to take the  short cut to power and distribute official favors. IN THIS PARTY AIRE TO  BE POUND ANARCHISTS, SINGLE  TAXERS, DIRECT - iTJEGI'SLlATION-  ISTS, OAST-OFF CAPITALIST POLITICIANS, AND M'ANY HONEST BUT  MISGUIDE�� MEN, WHO KNOW LIT-  TDE Oit NOTHING- ABOUT SOCIALISM. The party promises those vvho  are inclined to socialism that It is thei  vince aro varied���and they In nine  times out of ten are honest In th-��lr  views, yet thoy differ���but all will  agree upon a "Jar of mixed pickles," for  the time being at least. Mr. Debs ha.-,  boon ai' the head of one or two big  labor movements, which have failed  In their aspirations���and the one ho is  now engaged in has not been put to a  practical lest like the others were. We  venture to say that not one working-  man In twenty In this iprovinee will acknowledge that he Is a socialist, though  all are socialists, but only in degree.  True, Socialists are not knockers, but  teachers. Ar.y talented man with an  latei national reputation like Mr. Debs  vvill be hospitably received by all the  people of British Columbia, but be  cause they pay him this respect lt  does not follow that t'hey hold with his  teachings.  ���FOLiEY AND  DEBS  The Rossland World of Tuesday says:  "On   the president of the  Progressive  party being approached with regard to  the assertion made by this morning's  Mirier that the Western Federation  Labor intended to oppose the Progressives at the next election, and that En  gene V. Debs was in this -province for  the purpose of organizing such' an opposition,  Chris. Foley replied that the  assertion vvas absolutely false and utterly without foundation.   The wish is  evidently   the father to  the   thought  very party'needed at this Mine to IeadjPoIItIcal action ls the hobby of EuSenG  up to socialism. In the next breath it|^_ ^,ebSmIt .isy^o strongly advocated  assures others,  vvho are    opposed    to  his road, which favor vvas granted.  The relations between the C. P. It.  ofliclals and the Brotherhood of Itail-  way Trackmen are perfectly harmonious. We aio at peace with all railway companies on the North American  Continent, and I am .proud of It.  According to tlio Now Yoric Herald of  June 27. the liberal offer made by the  <3. P. 11. was spurned by me nnd I returned to my desk lu llie Bcnolst Biilld-  Jn$r, In the city of St. Louis, on June 27.  1 might heie icmaik that on that date  1 registered at tho Windsor Hotel, Ot-  'tawa, Out,, and I have not been away  from Canada since my arrival early In  June; nor do I intend to leiuve Iill 1  ttet ready.  The attempt made last summer by  unscrupulous men to deprive me of my  liberty and an opportunity to suppoit  my family by mis-using the courts of  Canada, fell to the ground, nnd I feel  perfectly safe among the Canndi'in  "people.  The small degree ot success vve have  bad In our efforts to Improve the condition of the muintenance-of-way men  in tbe Dominion of Canada, Is largely  due to the fairness  af  the Canadian  CIVIC EMPLOYEES MEET.  The Civic Employees' Federal union,  No. 37, on Monday evening held its  first meeting since the arrival of the  charter. Organizer Watson was in attendance, and administered the obligation and Initiated all the members.  After -this ceremony .had ibeen gone  through -with, all the ofllcers were installed in their respective stations, and  the union completely organized.  This new union takes in all men in  the city's employ���no matter what their  occupations may ibe. The need of such  a -union has been ifelt for a long time.  Now it is an established fact, with the  headquarteis at Union hall. The charter will ;be left open until the fourth  Friday of this month (the 23th), to give  all a chance to join. After that date  it will be closed, and the entrance fee  will be Increased. -All-those-vvlshlng-to  enroll their names at the lower rate  must do so 'Immediately. The meetings  of the union will be every second and  fourth Fridays In each month, in Union  hall. There is aliendy a vory. large  membership.  socialism, that it is just the party to  head off the socialist movement. The  pJaltform may be properly described as  A JAW OF MIXED PICKLES.., It is  really a ourioslty. Among other things  it provides t'hat judges and other olli-  'oials shall he granted annual passes  by the railroad corporations. Its chief  recommendation to the unthinking <s  that it will grow qulokly and deliver  the gold Ibrlcfks -while you watt.  "This -party has no mission except to  retard the progress of the bona fide socialist (movement. It will do this for  but a very short time, and in twelve  months or less, It will -have ceased to  exist. What Is ivan'ted in Canada, as  elsewhere, is a straight-out, class-coa-  sclous socialist iparty, and such a party  is the socialist party of Canada, to  whom men are bound to turn, when  they realize that .there can be no compromise with the enemy and that the  party that seeks to harmonize the conflicting interests af the classes involved  in -the class-struggle, is simply the  party of the capitalist olass, and should  be shunned by every man vvho favors  emancipation of the 'workers from the  centuries of slavery and Inhumanity.  "I take this occasion to return my  cordial -thanks to tha members of trades  unions and others for their jclnil and  hospitalble treatment, which I appreciate and shall gratefully remember.  by tlie Western Federation of Labor  which, by the way, is (hardly if at all  represented in this province.  THE BAKERS.  The Jurneymen Bakers and Confectioners' International union of America Is a body of bakery workmen  which has been ln existence since ISSfi,  and ihas at present over 200 branches  throughout the United States and Canada, with a membership of over 12,000,  constantly growing in numbers,  strength and power. The objects, to  quote from its constitution, are: The  promotion of the material and intellectual welfare of all working people in  the baking trade by organization and  education, by reduction of the hours of  labor, by gradually abolishing sucn  evils as may pievail In the baking  trade; by establishing labor bureaus  wheiever possible; by assisting members in legal cases In matters concerning the union, and by the abolition of  night wonk. A sick aiid death benefit  fund has ibeen created in connection  vvith the international union, and in  case of siokness, a member is entitled  to a benefit of " per week; the death  ���benellt is J100.  TUE STKEET RAILWAY JEN  (milium  There is no problem which confronts  the American vvoricingmaii tliat is  fraught with so much Importance as  the labor problem. To Improve the  various conditions of labor, by an effort to make life worth living, Is well  worth the earnest consideration of  every man who earns his bread by the  sweat of his brow. When .wo take Into  consideration the vast opportunities  that are offered to a few individuals  to iniulcc large 'fortunes ln a. fe>v  months' time; yea, some times In a day,  or a few weeks at the most, the workingmen cannot but come to the conclusion that they are the producers of the  wealth of this country, and therefore  should be honorably treated and' receive a fair share of the wealth they  produce by long ihours of weary toll,  not to say anything of the lives sacrificed In tbe mills and other marts of  interest. . '  "JAR OF MIXED PICKLES.  We think that Mr. Debs has gone  somewhat out of his way to condemn a  movement which vvas inaugurated  mainly by miners' unions of the interior.  His words are so contrary t his usually  peaceable and convincing language that  it comes as a surprise and savors  strongly of Do Leonlsm. Tho Provincial Progressive Party vvas staited by  good, earnest men, and will continue to  live and grow strong. And we are  much .mistaken if, at tlio next Provincial election,    the Progies-sives do not  elect   men to thei_l,egislaturo._ Mr.  Debs came In our midst as a paid lecturer, whicli fact no fair-minded man  will take exception to, to instruct the  people in a new propaganda woik,  which, as yet, Is but In Its infancy in  this province, and those who were fortunate enough to hear lilm, were well  repaid. But they do take exception  to his partisan criticism, as pointed out  elsewhere In these columns. The convention that drafted the Kamloops platform was iniade up of men who had  been persecuted fiom pillar to post In  the cause of lnbor, their very families  suffering from the severe strike. Beforo  that gathering this province was hopelessly divided In Its political beliefs and  opinions and it ls ao yet. This platform vvas adopted for the express purpose of uniting the masses on one common ground to learn to understand that  "an Injury to one was the concern of  all." For this, reason a progressive  -platform vvas agreed upon. We have  no quarrel with socialism, for It Is not  a growth of a day, but of yeais. .We  do not want to look -upon those who  champion it as scabs; far from it;-but  actions apeak louder than words.. The  tastes of the workingmen of this pro-  THJ3 MOULDERS.  On Tuesday tho lion Moulders' convention at Toronto adopted Ihe report  of the credential committee, which  showed 520 delegates in attendance.  President Fox delivered his annual address, amid much enthusiasm.  The report of ofllcers showed a tremendous gain in membership, and a  good exchequer, notwithstanding the  heavy demands upon lt during thc  past two years.  Labor organizations guarantee to the  employer that his competitor is paying the same wages that he is, and  gives him a basis for making his estimates and setting his prices. .And if  laborers wore leceiving fair remuneration throughout the country, they could  do-moie buying-and" consuming,���and  penhaps increase the income of the man  who owns the factory���the very man  who at .piesent considers himself superior to his employees.

The little merchants vvho used to be  so glib vvith their claim that "competition was the life of trade," are very  quiet these dnys, when bhey are getting solar plexus blows of competition  from the department stores. Even the  politicians do not dare to spring that  "life of trade" chestnut any more. It is  a point the small dealers are rather  sensitive on. They will have to drop  some moro of their phrases as time  wears on, and rather soon, too,���Ex.  Thy excursion of tho-streat railway  employees arrived at Sumus at 10:43 m  Friday. The weather vvas not favorable, but nevertheless the picnickers  made things lively and interesting. As  soon as they got there -they piocecded  to the Mt. Baker Hotel, where Mayor  L-nrJbei t received ithe guests, extending  the freedom of"the city, and presenting  a. souvenir -key in honor of the occasion to the ivisitors. Mr. Charles Murray, oii behalf of those from Vancouver, responded in a neat speech .thank'  Ing the citizens of Sumas for their kind  com testes, and a most apreolated vy��l-  conie. At the conclusion of Mr. Murray's brief remarks, the band played  the British National Anthem, all join-  Ing in ithe refrain, with hats off. It  now being lunch hour those having baskets adjourned to the railway coaches  to -have lunch, and many others went  to the hotels, where the accommodation  was most commendable.  After satisfying the inner man with  the good things provided on such occasions by the ladles, the Maple Leafs  of Mount Pleasant ainpeared In the field  all s.plc and span Jn their brand new  uniforms, the sweaters of whioh being  red, with the national emblem worked  In -white on the -breast, and white pants  Shortly after trie Americans were seen  to enter ithe arena In their blue uniforms, which was the signal for ao  plause. Both contending teams lined up  and -were cautioned by 'the referee. The  whistle blew, and the boys sailed into  the game ait a most rapid ,pace. Excepting a near case of drowning, when  a Yan'kee and a Britisher both dived  for the rubber into a pond af water  thait happened to be dn -the centre of  the Jleld, all .passed 'off wiithout an accident. The red coat got the ball and  the ilibtle boy blue was rescued by his  comrades just In the nick of time lo  see the elusive sphere lodged snugly in  their net, -to the great delight of the  visitors. It was a ifine igame, the score  being-5 to 3 in favor of Vancouver.  Talk albout strong men,-in those days  were giants.   The international tug-of-  war was a ig-reat feait of strength and  endurance.    They  tugged  and  pulled,  and .pulled and itugged   till something  gave way, ibut not the British with anchor Thonpe at'the end of    the rope.  The Americans ithou'ght' they could Jo  the trick, but they couldnH. When thDy  began 'they dug footholds and were of  of course^invlsLble,  hauling  the Vancouver boys across the line in double-  quick time; but the sides reversed ends  and the British landed their opponents  ln  quicker time.    The  third pull was  on a clear field,  and honors went  to  the  British,   whose    motto   is  always,  "Conquer,   but    be meiioitiil."    Thorpe  was presented vv..th a fine bouquet   of  heather  and thistles,  accompanied   by  an address and a modal of leather, with  a pewter hole in it.   It vvas a braiv day.  The great American game of baseball  followed t'he   tug-of-vvar.     The crowds  again began foregathering,    but    this  time with added numbers.    The ladies  could be seen coming in all direction1;.  It vvas noticed    that Bio. Barton was  somewhat   anx-ioiis   aibout    this    time.  And when he started across lets, pulling  an  empty carriage,    speculation    wius  rife.   It was thought ithat he was goi'aj  to enter ithe races.

A Chlccgo despatch, eays that the,  freight-handlers' strike, which caliedl  out 9,000 men on Monday and seriously-  curtailed the handling of freights, appeals no nearer settlement. The elnslir-  raan of tho state board of arbitration  said that no result had come of his  offoits for aibitratlon. At all the freight  houses pickets fcersuaded new-comers  from taking jobs. The jobbing interests of the city are seriously crippled in  the shipping departments. The roa'ds  so far huve had but little chance of  handling anything save perishable  freight.

Secretary     Durham    of  the  Lodge   of  Fishermen   returned  city yesterday after making a trip over  the different fishing grounds at Canoe  Pass,     Steveston,    Westham     Island,  North   and   South   Flats,   Point  Grey,  English Bay, etc., etc.     He says that  there are next to no fishing boats out.  In English Bay there may be a score,  but In the Gulf there are none at all.  In the Fraser JRiver none were visible,  though there had been a few scattering  union white men out.     They have not  been told^ to go on strike, there being  none declared.     At Steveston the jilace'  looks dead,  only about a.'dozen or so  American fishermen, being there.' He met,  a deputation from the Japanese union,,  whioh consisted of President S. Koba  Taikabashi,   Vice-president   U.   Selcine,  Secretary S. Nakashima, and Treasurer  Ta'kaoka. They say that they had sent  a proposition to the canners to fish, for  IS'cents���but this was.'refused.    'The  Japanese held a big meeting at Stevo-  ston,on Thursday, and decided to make  another offer, which Is for 17 cents up  to the 2nd of August and 1." cents for  the balance 'of the season.     It is believed that the whites vvill agree to support  them  in  the latter offer.      While tho  -price is considered very low, the whitss  will stand by the Japs for the same.  A greater number of Indians are on  the river this year than have been  there heretofore, but only about half  the numbr of Japs as were -fishing last  year. .There is also a big falling off  in the white men. The latter, however,  vvill rally if the price of fish gees up  to say 20 or 32 cents.  The only place sockeyes were running  were in English Bay. '   '  There Is quite an amount of interest  being taken in the cose^f Alex. Harvey, late secretary of the Eburne Lodge,  wiho Is alleged to be'a defaulter of  funds belonging to that union. The  preliminary hearing comes up on Monday.  " tl  :*-~m  IF CIliRIST CAME TO LONDON.  ..��  What would He see?

At length lie happened by chance to  glance out of a window Hint ho was  passing. It; opened on a piazza at tlio  back of tho house. His cyo was caught  by a white iiguni leaning ovor tho  railing. Ho stepped'closer to tlio win  dow, and toliis relief, saw the object  of his search.  Sho was alono. Sho was standing  by a pillar of thn piazza looking out  toward the moonlit sea in tho distance. Evidently she was not waiting  for anyone to join lier, for hor whole  attitude indicated hor oblivion of  everything near her and her utter contentment in hor solitary revorio. What  an odd girl, to steal off alone like  tliis. She might bo making conquests  of hearts indoors, if she would, instead of mooning out hero at the bnck  of tlie bouse; for slio was looking very  pretty in her artistically simple  gown.  Miss Matthews, Miss Hale, and he  had all folt sonic secret surprise, tbat  eveniug, at tlio costume in wliich she  had appeared. When thov discussed  inviting hor to join them, Miss Hale  confided to him her doubt as to  ���whether Miss Rankin possessed any  gown suitable to wear at a full dross  hop, and consulted him as to the ad-  ���isability of offering to lend her something. He of course refuted such a  suggestion docidedly, and Miss Hale  was puzzled at the dark flush that  came into'kis face whon she made her  generous proposition.  "If she has no suitable gowu," he  answered, shortly, "she will probably  refuse to go with us."  So whon Miss Bankin came down  to the carriago robod in a gown of  more simple elegance and more exquisite taste than any which Miss  Halo possessed in her wholo wardrobe,  they felt a little astonished.  During the drive, she was very  silent, and moro abstracted than she  had appeared for several days past.  He felt uncertain whether to attribute  it to the feeling of constraint which  Miss Matthews had assured him Miss  Rankin would undoubtedly feel in  their society, or whether it was duo  to the great, oblong letter from the  law firm of Titzel and McVay which  he had seen her rocoivo that evening.  That this letter had strongly affected  her he know, for ho had been iu the  library with her whilo sho had read  it, and he had soon her grow flushed  and nervous under its influence.  He looked at hor now, .as she stood  outside on the piazza in the moonlight. A fragile, ethereal creature,  6he Bomoed, with a brow so earnest,  and yet so sweetly womanly, that  there camo to his mind, as he watched  hor, the Knauss picture of the. Madonna.  "A good girl, no doubt," he  thought, "but a bit tedious."  Tlio   window  at  wliich  ho  stood  opened to tho floor.   Ho pushod up the  cash aud stepped out ou  the  piazza.  As ho camo to hor side,   it  was with  rather  evident  reluctance   that    she  turned her oyos from   tho  glistening  silver sea and rested them upou  him.  "I  havo  had   quite   a  search  for  you," he said; ho loaned against  railing   beforo    hor  and folded  arms. ' .  "That is too bad���I am sorry."  "I wanted to ask you -to give  difference towards himself from girls.  Evidently she did not care n rap  whether he stayed or wont. He even  suspected that she preferred to be  alone, improbable as it seemed.  "Now I shall wait," he obstinately  said to himself, "and see how long  she will hold out tin a silence like  this! I can stand it if she can. I  have made every start 50 far and she  does not help nt all. I do not propose to do all tho work���she has got  to take her turn.'';  A low, rippling laugh at his side  startled him out of his thoughts.  "I nm racking my brain for something to say to you,"  spoko hor soft  voico.   "I cannot think of anything. |  Hero we are���two  strnngors���I know i  nothing of what is in your mind and j  you know nothing of what is iu mine; -  yot it is quito essential  that  wo say ;  something to each  other.

"Oh, dear mo, whatever can a helpless woman do with two such perfect-  ��� ly dreadful persons on hor hands!   At  ' any rate, don't come to blows,   I beg  of you."  "I will acknowledge, Forney"  said  Dade, "that Miss Halo pretended  to  me that her reason  for  wanting to  come out here  to this'retired spot,'  was  to  catch  a glimpse of a distin-  | guished visitor wo havo here to-night,  aud whom wo thought wo saw prom-  I ennding in  this direction.

"Oh, no,   but "   she  hesitated.  He waited,   but she did not conclude  her excuse.  "You aro not fond of dancing?"  '' Sometimes.   Not to-night.''  A silence fell.

Ottawa, Ont.,'May 26.���(Spccial)-  |To say that the miraculous case of  George II. Kent, of 300 Gilinorc St.,  had shaken medical  circles  to  their  very foundation, is putting it mildly  The facts of tho caso have been so  thoroughly and satisfactorily established by Mr. Kont's sworn statements as to leave no rdom for misunderstanding or mistake in themat-  tcr.  Mr. Kent had Briglitjs Disease ; he  had been in bed for months, gradually getting worse; physicians could  do nothing for him.  His case had reached that stage  when his body was terribly bloatod.  He was so low that he had convulsions, which wore rapidly growing more frequent.  ln tho interval between these convulsions Iio was almost entirely unconscious.  ln this extremity the physicians at  last told his wife that he could not  livo until morning.  While watching by his bedsido Mrs.  Kent chanced to pick up a paper  containing an advertisement of a  cure of Bright's Disease by Dodd's  Kidney Pills, lt was then midnight,  and all drug stores were closed, but  the devoted wife determined, that  even at this extremely late hour she  would mako one more elTort to save  her husband's life.  Accordingly sho despatched a messenger, woke up the nearest druggist, procured a box of Dodd's Kidney Pills, which she commenced to  administer at once.  Mr. Kent did not die that night,  for from the first dose of Dodd's  Kidney Tills he commenced to improve. All other treatments and  medicines were discarded, and tlio  use of this remedy carefully continued.  Gradually yet surely this wonderful romedy arrested tlio progress of  the dread Bright's Disease.  lt took Dodd's Kidney Pills about  six or seven weeks to restore Mr.  Kent to good health.

A chapter is devoted to each  of these subjects, and an extensive  circulation of the catalogue, which is  distributed gratuitously, cannot fail  to materially assist in "spreading  the light" regarding the Dominion  under tho headings enumerated.  The Canadian display is so arranged  that no  difficulty can be experienced   in   classing    the various" sections, for, on entering the Royal Ex-  chango by the western door one finds  the minerals all placed on stands or  in cases in tho following order :  (1)  Iron ores and nickel ores; (2) corundum and corundum wheels;  (3) gold  copper ores,  milling gold ores;    (<t)  ���'��� nickel and nickel products;  (5) various gold    ores   from   different Provinces,     connected     with   which    is  $200,000 worth of gold in the form  of bars, bricks, nuggets and dust', as  well    as   gold    quartz and alluvial  gold,  together   vvith a small collection of gems.

Passing from the minoral exhibit we come to the section apportioned  to  thc food | roducts,    stand  No.  19,  showing a large  variety of  cereals,     consisting    piincipally    of  wheat, barley, oats, rye, clover, corn  (maize),  buckwheat,  peas and beans.

The inexhaustible    harvest    of    tho  seas,  annually gathered  by its hardy  murine population,    tho- innumerable  treasures of its forests, are known to  all; but what is not so generally understood is that beyond the present  inhabited regions of the country���beyond'   tho    towns,    the lakes,    the  woods���there stretches out an enormous breadth of rich,  alluvial  soil,  comprising nn area of thousands  of  square miles,  so level, so fertile, so  ripe for cultivation, so profusely wa-  leied,   and    intersected  by enormous  navigable rivers,   witli  so exceptionally mild a climate as 'to be destined  at no distant time to bo occupied by  millions of    our    prosperous fellow-  subjects,  and  to    become    a central  granary for thc adjoining continents.

Tho Koyal Edinburgh Geographical Society, of which  Mr Bruce is a member, is chiefly interested in it, but almost every other  Scotch scientific society has a voice  in the expedition also.  The party under Mr. Bruce, will cooperate with the three expeditions already in the antarctic���thc British,  Swedish and German. Each expedition will have ils own sphere of activity. In accordance with Mr.  Brace's avowed object his party expects to spend at least a year and  possibly three in the Weddoll sea, a  region about which practically nothing is known, having been visited by  only ono explorer and that eighty  years ngo. The Wcddell sea lies between the region in which the German expedition is to work and that  which tho loaders of the Swedish expedition  have chosen.  Mr. Bruce and'his associates will  sail on the ship ITcla, foimerly n  Norwegian whaler, which will bo fitted up on tho Clyde under thc eye of  G. L. Watson, thc builder of Shamrock II., who is taking a great interest in the antarctic quest. On  board tlie llecla thoro will bo seven  men of science in addition to Mr.  Bruce, 'each of whom will be in  charge of a different branch of scientific work, and a crew of; thirty men  to manage the ship.

We are the third greatest  gold producing country on earth, yot  no yellow coin witli a Canadian face  is ever seen. Millions of big Yankee  silver dollars pass current in the land,  while England jna-kes our small silver  .coins. Canada lacks the sense and  enterprise to establish a mint nnd  make money, probably because the  bankers do not want such an institution, for fear of Its effect upon their  rng money. Canada Is. a fat, juicy, and  soft thing for the sharp people of the  United States. Look at the condition of  lead mines in this -province. They  speak volumes foi- the lack of brains in  our statesmen. Canada should be tired  of doing rough work for the United  States. Since the exportation of cedar  logs vvas prohibited in this ' province,  tho Incieased activity in the shingle  business is-a lecord breaker, even  though Chinese are extensively employee!. The pulp industry is about to  sprout in British Columbia, and a law  prohibiting the exportation of pulp  should1 be put in force all over the Dominion. Every pound of pulp should  bo worked 'into paper and then shipped  all over the world. At the present time  the pulp industry is worth ?4,000,000 a  year lo Canada. With an export duty  on pulp and pulp wood it would be  worth "."i0,000,000, and the Canadians are  not financially wise If they vvill pei mit  the piesent state of affairs to exist any  longer.

The Girl of Fifteen.  Tbe great thing for n young girl to  know Ib that Bhe doesn't know anything. All which life teaches is to  come. Sbe has heard much talk, rend  a few books, looked out of wondering  eyes upon the great world, but sbe bus  not bad a chance to do anything, and.  until one actually enters into the activities of life one can kuow nothing of  realities.  lc is true tbat tbe schoolgirl noB been  brought Into contact witb active young  minds and with teachers and Instructors. She ls learning something about  human nature, something about the  play of forces good and bad in the society sbe happens to be a part of; but,  unable to compare, to judge, to reason  closely, of necessity she remains ignorant of tbe real, living, working world.  When a girl has tbe sense to realize  exactly tbe place she occupies ln the  social order sbe ls a most bappy girl.  Content to be herself, leaving tbe management of things to older and wiser  persons/looking on and learning ns she  goes, joyous, hopeful, helpful und gay,  there is nothing in ull nature so beautiful and sweet ns this kind of a girl of  fifteen. While she defers to tbe will  and advice of ber parents In all things,  this girl begins to reflect, to reason und  compare, and thus she learns as she  goes on her|Way.7 Later on experience  becomes ber teacher, and all tbat she  observes now will be translated Into  what sbe can understand by experience.���Ada C.

No household where there are children should bo without olive oil, for It  is an Invaluable medicine in certain  cases. For a weakly child or one who  Is recovering from typhoid fever snlnd  oil will sometimes work wonders. The  pinn Is to rub In tbe oil over the whole  of the child's body, especially about the  upper part, taking a few drops at a  time iu the palm of the band. Tbe  nourishment thus absorbed through tbe  skin will be of immense service In  building up the child's strength. When  a child Is suffering from a severe cold,  it is a good plan to omit the daily bath  and to rub the back nnd chest with  olive oil. To Insure no further cold tbe  child sbould be wrapped lu a blanket  and carefully screened from drafts  while the rubbing is being done. A  threatening of croup often will end ln  a threatening only if oil and camphor  be applied to the child's chest. The  method ls to saturate a piece of flannel,  sprinkle It with a little powdered camphor, and apply it to tbe chest and  throat as warm as it can be borne.  Cover with a piece of dry flannel and  change as soon as it gets cold.  Jndee Not Too Quickly.  . A mother whose temper Is Impulsive  should never trust her first hasty Judgment in the management of her little  ones.  In thc larger affairs of tbe neighborhood and of society the prudent person  refuses to judge hastily. He gives tbe  benefit of the doubt wherever and  whenever and to whomsoever he can.  People have a right to nsk that before  tbey are weighed in tlie balances and  found wanting their cases shall be  looked at from all sides nnd from the  most favorable point of view. It Is not  well to assume that blushes and down  dropped eyes always Indicate guilt.  Innocence falsely accused Is often  ashamed to look its accuser in the face.  Judge not, tbnt ye be not Judged, was  Bald by the purest lips that ever spoke  on earth.  Dinner Neighbor*.  Dinner neighbors on the right band  nnd on tbe left, even if they have been  previously Introduced, are equally difficult to approach with an apposite remark, and If they have not been introduced, but are. merely brought Into  Juxtaposition for the time being, the  situation ls still more acute. Tlicre ls  a doubt moreover, in the minds of  many as to whether tliey nre prlvi-  lcdged to talk to these snine neighbors.-  but this doubt need not exist; they are  quite ut liberty, according to etiquette,  to make themselves agreeable to tbeir  dinner neighbors If tbey can.  Children nnd Elyealght.  Why are savages and sailors rarely  nearsighted? Because they are Incessantly looking at distant objects, seldom poring over books. Let a mother,  then, endeavor to make her child notice the shapes of distant objects, tbe  flight of birds, tho condition of horses,  their various actions, the growth nnd  variety of trees. These apparently  trilling cares are most useful in cultivating long sight, capacity for observation and accuracy In statements.  To prevent short sight, flrst prohibit  a child from reading at dusk or by firelight; second, never allow 111 printed  books or one in small type; third, no  llluminant sbould.be near tbe eyes, tbe  bent being peculiarly Injurious; fourth,  do not allow rending too long at a  time; fifth, a child should not stoop  much ovcr a book. Little bechlvo  chairs are very useful In this way.  The back Is well supported, nnd both  feet can be placed straight on tbe  ground. Bad positions In sitting are a  fruitful cause of curvature of tbe  spine; sixth, at any sign of trouble in  the eyes have them at ouce examined  by a competeut oculist Allow no amateur meddling on tbls important point  Don't scour the Inside of coffeepots.  Wash them witb bot soaysuds, using  a mop to dry thoroughly.  Before putting food In new tins set  thein ovcr the fire with boiling water  in them for several hours.  Trouble will be saved In cleaning a  greasy sink by rubbing it with n little  paraffin oil on a piece of flannel.  The uses of fine sandpaper. In tbe  kitchen are many,"' especially for  smoothing all soapstone utensils.  When cinders have bad the ashes  washed from them, they make a much  brighter tire than when covered with  ashes.  For denning kitchen knives, some  say. nothing Is better than powdered  brick dust applied by means of u raw  potato cut in halves.  A slice of lemon added to tbe water  In whicli kitchen towels, window  cloths, etc., ure scalded will materially  help to clean nnd sweeten them.  If new tinware Is rubbed over with  fresh lard and thoroughly heated In  the oven before being used, it is said,  it will never rust, no matter bow much  It is put in water.  To clean greasy kettles warm the pot  or kettle, then throw in a handful of  common! and rub well, and you will  find the meal will absorb all the fat  so that sonp and water will make your  kettle perfectly clean.  MnlcInKT Cnd* by Telephone.  "Formal calls," said a society woman  recently, "are becoming obsolete; 1  mean the running in of nn afternoon,  chatting for live or ten minutes, leaving  your card, rushing off to the next  place on your list and then expecting  these women to do the same thing to  you nnd praying you may be out when  they call.  "I make nearly all ray calls now over  thc photic. It is so much more comfortable and saves such a lot of time  and bother. I Just sit down In my ovvn  home tint! call up Mrs. Jones In her  home. I owo ber a call. If sbe is ln,  she comes to the phone, and, although  I may have nothing In particular to  talk to her about, we chatter nwny for  several minutes, and before I ring off  I Impress upon her tbe fact that 1 am  returning her call nnd tbat sbe needn't  expect me to come In person. She  Inuglis and thinks It's all right and  then pays some of the calls she owes  In the same way. It really docs away  witb a great nuisance."���Philadelphia  Record.  i^FSr Little  A REAL CANNON.

The wooden pnrts of the gun are con-  ncctcd by tacks nnd glue. As axle for  the wheels use a strong knitting needle  Benefit* ol Exerclae.  Next to bodily cleanliness exercise  may be reckoned as tbe greatest aid to  beauty. In fact exercise is almost  necessary to cleanliness, for lt Is a  great Incentive to perspiration, which Is  nature's way of throwing the Impurities of the body to tbe surface of tbe  skin, from which they nro then removed by tbe use of water. Open nlr  exercise sbould be tcken every day, but  according to strength. One should return borne after walking, riding or  cycling witb a sense of being pleasantly fatigued, but without nny feeling of  exhaustion. Exercise sbould be tnken  regularly, and If possible dumbbells  should be used night and morning, Tbe  corset sbould not be worn while exercising witb dumbbells. Skipping is an  excellent exercise for tbe figure, and it  ls one of which our grandmothers were  fond. It is usual vvith children to  throw the rope forward when skipping,  but It is far better to throw it backward, for it expands the cbest much  better.  Curllnii the Flair.  There Is no harmless solution which  will make the hair curl without the  aid of patent curlers or n heated Iron.  A thin solution of gum urable or a decoction of quince seed will retain the  curls nfter tbey are mnde, nnd the  application of a little oil will keep  them impervious to mist or dampness,  but these are tbe only legitimate menus  which may be employed.  Bntter In Coffee,  If we wish to enjoy the peculiar flavors of tbe coffee mnde In Norway and  France, wo must doctor the beans and  do our own grinding, advises an expert  coffee maker.  In Norway, where superb coffee. Is  made, a bit of butter is added to the  beans while tbey are roasting in the  covered shovel used there for that purpose. In France u piece of butter (lie  size of a walnut is put with three  pounds of coffee beans uud ulso a dessert spoonful of powdered sugar. This  brings out both flavor und scent and.  moreover, gives the slight caramel taste  which will be remembered as a pleas-  lug purt of the French coffee. ,  Table Linen Monograms.  There are many little niceties about  table linen whlca not every ono knows.  There are, for Instance, certain fixed  rules which govern tbe Initials, or tbe  monogram rather. A single Initial embroidered on the linen Is perfectly correct, but a monogram is much better.  But tliis monogram ls not to be lightly  dropped down wherever it may please  tbe embroiderer's funcy. It must be  placed just tbirty-six Inches from the  corner of the square clotb. thus bringing It beyond the edge of the table  when the cloth Is spread. On tbe oblong cloth tbe thirty-six Inches still  rule, but there must be two monograms  situated at this distance from diagonally opposite corners. On the round clotb  two monograms must aguin be found,  opposite one another and Just far  enough removed from the center to escape tbe centerpiece. The proper size  for n monogram Is between threo and  four Inches for the tablecloth, while  thnt on the napkin sbould not measure  over one nnd oiie-linlf inches.  Bran a* aCIenner.  Bran ls recommended aa a most efficacious cleansing agent for carpet  ThFbFnn sbouldbe moistened Just suf-~  ficlently to bold tbe particles together  and then sprinkled over the floor. Tbe  claim Is made that the bran not only  cleans the carpet, but tbat all thc dirt  Is absorbed by the moist substance.  The broom is kept clean, and no dust  settles on furniture or pictures.  Perfect Tante In Chooalntt Clothrn.  It was said of Eugenie of France  that no one ever snld. "Uovv superbly  the empress Is dressed!" but nlwnys,  "Mow beautiful she Is tonight!" Vet  no one ever wore more costly garments  at tbe French court Thc materials  were of the most delicate texture, tbe  lnce wns perfection, the cut and design  those which only an nrtist could produce, but tliey were always subordinate to the wearer.

"Vli'ither    sovoiity-six   is  ���/"summer heat" and a   few   degrees'  lower'" temperate"    depends  largely  on locality.   Hut tho two lixed facts  that    water   freezes at   32   degrees  nbiivu zero iind that the temperature  of tho body is VH 6-10 exercise u controlling  inflfionco over  inuiiv  of the  nlfairs of life.    And, while the vvholo  fare of the instrument might be dotted    with    other    interesting signs,  such us tho boiling    point of water  and other liquids    and    tho freezing  points of vaiioiis liquids, these facts  concerning hlood and water aro the  prime essentials.  ''    The freezing point of water is   at  the basis of    many industrial   processes.   It must be constantly watched.        When     freezing   weather    is  threatened,    ��� the     familiar   suction  pump is allowed to  "run clown," or  the     valves    in    unprotected    water  pipes urc closed.'   Jn house building  tho mason goes below the point   to  which frost ovor penetrates to get a  good  foundation.     '.'-Inst    pipes    also  have to be laid below tho frost line.  Above it wintci-Ws continually disintegrating the earth as with millions  of little charges of dynamite.   Water,  because it expands in freezing, tends  to break up everything into the crevices of which it penetrates.   "Bolow  the frost lino" has thus become   in  literature a recognized figure for so- !  curity of foundations.  When callod to see a patient, the '  physician at onco takes out' his clinical thermometer. Placed under tho  sick man's tongue, it registers tho  bodily temperature. Tlijs nature  muintuins through tho perspiration  at such a delicate balance that tho  variation of a degree is significant.  Successive changes in the tcinpera-  turo of the body reveal much as to  the course of a malady.

Wo buvo, however, in  Quinino Wino, when obtainablo in a sound,  unadulterated state, a remedy for many and  grievous ills.  By ita gradual and judicious  use the frailest systems aro led into convalescence and strength by tbo influence which  Quinine exerts on nature's own restoratives.

Northrop & Lyman,  of Toronto have given to tho publio their  superior Quinine Wino at tho usual rate, and,  'gauged by the opinion of scientists, this  wine approaches nearest perfection of any in  the market.   Baby's Own Tablets are good for  children of all ages from the tiniest,  weakest baby to the well grown  child, and are a certain cure for indigestion, sour stomach, colic, constipation, diarrhoea, teething troubles, and tho other minor ailmouts  of children. Thero is no other medicine acts so speedily, so safely and  so surely and thoy contain not ono  particle of the opiates found in thc  so-called "soothing" medicines. Mrs.  11. M.

After using the Tablets ho began to  get better almost at once and slept  botter nnd vvas no longer cross. I  think the tablets a fine medicino for  children and keep them on hand all  the time."

I became  very weak, grew thin, suffered much  from pains in tho stomach and was  frequently seized with dizziness.

I was so eager to  find a cure that I acted on his advice  and procured a supply.     From   the  very first my condition improved and  after using the pills for a couple of  months   I.  was    fully,   restored   to  health, after having been a constant  sufferer for four   years.

To hear each party talk, one  would infer that neither party had any  use for the other; and all oppose trade  unions. , But the trade unionist goes on  his way, knowing that it a state of socialism should ever come, It will he by  the. trade unionists, who will ihring It  about through .Lhelr organizations and  net by the "class-conscious" twaddle  vve. hear so much of.
