C, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 1902.  NO.  mm \m\m to bums.  JTo tlio Killtoro! Tmk I.Nui:n:NDE.vr:  Sir,���In your Issue of August 16th I  a-cad with  much pleasure Mr. Burns'  ���very Interesting article in reply to my  communication, appearing in your columns some time ago.  And I would say  -lhat Mr. Burns' method fulfils my conception of hovv these questions should  ie discussed.    However, to my mind,  the writer does not make his position  ���quite clear, and a lacking of a careful  study of the basic principles underlying the ground covered seems to be In  evidence.   Again,   Mr.   Burns'   disposition to deal in sweeping   generalities  and dogmatic assertions manifests a  ^ault,common to most socialist writers  ���In fact, this applies to most missionaries in every reform movement.   For  instance,  the  writer tells us  that the  Progressive  party  absolutely    ignores  ���the conflict of  interest    between  the  ���wage-earning and the property owning  ���class; and that legislation must favor  cither one or the    other,  never hoth.  .Now       let '    us       examine       this  sweeping assertion.   In  the^ first place  ���iully 70 per cent, of the laboring class  are small property owners, and, without any desire to split hairs, I would  ask air. Burns how the proposition to  divorce the interest of the laborer as  -a. property owner from his interest as  a   laborer, or, again,  the interest    of  property owning from that of     prop-  ���ertiless laborer, in legislation that increases the demand both for labor and  wages is to be brought about.   To assert then that llie property owning and  propertilcss laborer has no common interest in legislation must be bad logic.  If the words "monopolist" or "exploiter" of labor vvas substituted the writer's position would be more clearly defined.   As the paragraph stands it implies, first, a conflict of Interest as applying to the same Individual; second,  a conflict  between  two  classes of laborers,  having    at  least    a  laborer's  community nf interest.   But the change  suggested would still leave his position  far from being impregnable.   For example,   the   city   of  , Vancouver ' has  , bonused a sugar refinery, which employs, at a fair wage, many laborers.  Xeglslation    then    has    benefited    the  . millionaire.   sugar     trust     and     the  laborer to whom It gives employment.  And again by increasing the population  and pay roll   of   the city, adding to.'ts  consuming power,  benefits    the    merchant, mill  and professional man and  Jn turn enables them lo employ more  Jabor, which also would share In the  benefit thus gained.   Again, legislation  which creates    an  expansion    of. our  railroad system increases the demand  for labor  in  construction  and  operation���which, in turn, creates   millionaires, without in every case creating  paupers.   It then follows that the millionaire  railroader    and  laborer have  at times a community of interest  in  .legislation, while perhaps at the samo  time these interests may clash with the  Jnterest  of other  millionaire /busin.133  men and laborers.   In the abstract tlisn.  Mr..Burns is clearly wrong.   Under our  complicated economic system where the  interest of each Individual or Industry  Is   interdependent   upon   every   otlier  J generalities,are misleading.   Again, we  are,told  that laws which protect  the  millionaire      create      paupers,     while  laws     which     protect     the     pauper  makes the millionaire Impossible.   The  Progressive ypaily, hj!j*Hs_jw,,jRnoros  this  fact.   Now,   let  us  examine   this  ,  sweeping assertion.  Plank 1' in our platform favors '.he  singlo tax system, and is Intended to  strike a vital blow at tho landed millionaire, while by\ encouraging small  lioldlngs, It will tend to abolish pauperism. The Increase of population nutuc  ally following will add to the prosperity of the business man, the millionaire railroader, sugar refiner, steel  ' trust, coal baron, preuchor, professional  man nnd bootblack���thus creating, as  lt were, a legislative community of interest!) In all grades from the millionaire to the pauper, ns In conflict with  the intei est of the millionaire landlord.  Mr. Burns In his study ot economic*  livldently overlooks (be fact that surface values do not always Indicate Iho  character of the deposit on bed rock.  , Flank 2���Government ownership and  operation of railroads and nil moans of  transportation and communication.  Here abolish the wage system and wo  liave socialism. Later on, this step  may become a phase of practical poll-  tics. The word "progressive" written  across our banner does not mean stag-  Jiatlon. Like that of socialism, our  platform Is uot perfect, but is the be3t'Which  to-day appear but   .theoretical  wo believe th cncople are_ prepared to  we believe the people are prepared to  adopt at this particular time. This law-  would promote the interest of the employees nt least on railroads and ln the  express business. Wells, Fargo's agents  employees, on American roads work 12  hours  per day  and    receive   W0  per  month, while ln the mall department,  often ln the same car, government employees work but eight hours and re  celve ?80 per month.   Here then government ownership    of '-the    express  business would manifestly promote the  Interest of the laborer and violate that  of  the millionaire    express  company,  while public ownership of railroads; it  will be conceded, would work along the  same  line,   which,   by  destroying  the  railroad  magnates'  ability  to exploit  the   publio  and   tho   trust   to    secure  preferential rates would   hardly msei  with the approval of Morgan, Vanderbiit, Schwab   or  Rockefeller. Again, it'  the employer takes advantage of reduced rates, and    as   a   consequence  lowers the cost of llvlng.to take another  turn of the screw on labor, which he  certainly   will,    the   average   laborer  would be no worse off   than    before,  whilo those employed in the government  express and railroad business will certainly   be Ibenellted.   Confronted   thin  with these facts, we can justly be accused of Ignoring the fact that the law  which promotes the interest of the millionaire creates the  pauper and vice  versa.    In,      addition       by      lessening      the      cost      of        itransporta-  [���uiiue.iaja.id   oin    u|A'o.i}sop   puu   uon  rates it promotes the Interest of the  merchant, the manufacturer and farm-,  er in a small way, and in conjunction  with   the -government  employed labor  at least creates a community of Interest iii such legislation.  Plank 3���Government ownership and  operation, of refineries and smelters. I  would ask Mr. BurnB If he Is under the  Impression that this plank will meet  vvith the approval of the million dollar  smelter trust? Is there any recognition here of a class struggle? Is this  or is it not a step in the direction of  socialism? These things are within the  sphere of practical politics. When vie  have secured them we wlll'be prepared  to go' a step further. Our head light is  on the engine, not on the caboose. Will  public ownership of reduction works  promote the interests of the millionaire  and breed paupers, or the reverse. j?o  assume such a position would be bad  logic, rendering insecure even the foundation of socialism itself.    ���   '      ,���  Plank 4���The abolishment of the  property qualification to hold public office. Here it is proposed to throw open  to the humblest laborer that political  equality absolutely necessary to obtain  control 'by the common people of all  public franchises and to acquire that  political motive power necessary to  propel the ship of progress over the  storm swept approaches that must be  crossed ere we ever can hope to drop  anchor in the sunny harbor of social  ism. If Mr. Burns imagines this plank  will meet with the approval of the millionaire or does not recognise a class  struggle, I would suggest that he con  suit Mr. Dunsmuir, Sir* William Van  Home, or any other of the less, well-  to-do propertied class and observe the  effect.  Plank 5���Reservation of sections of  coal lands that will enable the government to operate mines when necessary.  Will a law of this kind, think you, meet  vvith_tIie_approval_of-Mr. -Dunsmuir or  Mr. Jaffray?   Will it tend to    create  millionaires or promote the growth ,-f  paupers?   Does  It    recognise    a class  struggle nnd promoting the Interest of  nearly every Industry not controlled by  a coal company, the farmer, manufacturer, merchant, professional man and  laborer?   Does It create a community  of Interest in  legislation- between  tho  property owner, often  the millionaire,  If you will, nnd the laborer?   Does this  character  of   legislation  write  across  the path of progress, "No thoroughfare  here," or rather does It Indicate a desire to give the rank and file an opportunity     to   familiarize   themselves  with the true conditions before asking  them to go farther?   If tho ebaractor  of legislation here suggested does not  recognize a conflict of Interest between  employer and  employed,   between  .be  property owner and laborer, what docs  It menn?   While at  the same time it  demonstrates what socialists have apparently failed to grasp that often the  millionaire property owner and laborer  have legislative Interests in  common.  Let us then confine our immediate efforts to the practical, and   when we  have accomplished our purpose, things,  Intelligent,  and wo-  under       a  dreams, may evolve Into the Held of  the practical.   Again, Mr. Burns tells  us that no party has ever succeeded,  except those alone who have adopted  tho abolishment of the wage system  and  collective    ownership.   That    the  highway of progress, he says, 13 strewn  with the bones of a thousand political  fads organized along the lines of the  Progressive party.   Does the lessons of  history justify this assumption of the  superiority of socialism over other fads  ���if fads they are���when its testimony  Is      that      every   , attempt      upon  absolute       socialistic       lines       has  been      a      failure      in    th;     past.  If     a      few      hundred  honest,      earnest      men  men       cannot     "agree  system where wages are abolished and  co-operation Is universal, how ive we  to hope that the great Ignorant, selfish  masses of unthinking Iiumanity,  brutalized by ages of injustice and wrong,  are to be enabled suddenly ��� to grasp  this gigantic problem and inaugurate  the mlllenlum.   These people  vvere as  intelligent,  earnest and honest as you  are.   They, too, belivecl that- they alone  possessed the panacia that would cure  all the ills of   life.    But in the words  of  the  poet,   they have  gone as  the  multitude goes, like the" flower or the  weed  that withers away to.let othe.'s  succeed.   And now again the' multitude  comes, even those we behold, perhaps,  to repeat  the same tale that has .10  often   been   told.   And  in    conclusion,  without desiring  to  violate socialistic  courtesy or discourage   the .growth of  socialism, I would ask ]JIr. Burns the  question so often put by socialists to  tiio  trades  unionists,  what  have  you  ever done  to permanently better the  condition   of  the  common  masses   of  humanity?  Germany, for 50 years the  Gibralter of socialism, is to-day ruled  by  an  autocratic    military    peacock,  backed  by  a  plutocratic  government,  sustained by an army ofilcered by educated,    brutalized    military    savages,  where socialism    is  more    a    protest  against    autocratic    government    and  military tyranny than a desire to es-'  tablish a co-operative   commonwealth.  While England,    Australia" and'New-  Zealand, through political action, backed by organized labor along the lines  of  the Progressive party,  are making  rapid strides in the direction of many  of  the fundamental  principles    of socialism.   Our   present   civilization   has  not been reached hy the efforts of any  particular creed, sect or political system.   Christianity     itself,    after    1900  years of effort on the part of millions  of unselfish workers and thousands of  humanity's   noblest' martyrs,   has   not  yet attained the end hoped for by its  early advocates.   Do not,    then,    Mr.  Burns,  let 'the  wrongs  that surround  you and your desire to see them righted blind you to the difficulties that coi-  o t  front the movement you advocate.   I  feel that a mind as logical as yours, If  properly applied, _must see the folly of  assaulting the citadel before the outer  works have been secured.  Bear in mind  that the social breakers, observable on  our street corners    at night,  indicate  that wo are approaching the narrows  without a friendly light to guide 'us  through a passage   strewn    with  the  vviecks of all that havo gone before.  Would It, then, I ask, not be wiser to  pursue the course adopted by tbe Progressive party first to remove a few of  the reefs that obstruct   our   passage  and    thus   avoid   the   errors   of   our  predecessors?   What- li7~~~"b"~~5n~~said~~~l  feel,  clearly demonstrates to a lar.-re  degree at least a community of Interest in legislation between the millionaire,   the property owner and  the laborer, and that legislation which benefits the one in very many eases benefits all.   'Hence the contention that our  interests are all at war cannot be sustained.   The  character    of  legislation  Implied In our platform may be easily  put Iu operation, thus paving the way  for tlio Ideal conditions outlined by socialism.    Bear In  mind  that I do not  desire to say anything that will check  tlio  growth    of  moderate    socialism.  Neither docs what I am about to say  apply to Mr. Burns, nor to all socialists, but Is Intended rather to discourage Ibis narrow-minded, self-righteous  spirit that can seo no virtue In  those  who may differ with them.   This disposition   lo hiss. Jeer and    liillcuie    the  opinions ot those who are as honest and  is Intelligent as themselves, savors of  the       spirit       of,      persecution���for  ridicule, Jeoilng   and    falsehood   were  the poisoned fangs In the jaws of '.he  monsters that inaugurated the Inquisition and religious warfare In sixteenth  century Europe, that filled the fore3,s  of Germany with innocent women and  children, there to die of starvation,  whilo their fathers, husbands and  brothers butchered each other on .the  battlefield, blindly believing In their ignorance that men could be made to believe and think alike by force. This  Insinuation, misrepresentation and personal abuse so common of late in some  of the socialistic press; this gasconade  and vulgar appeal to prejudice aiid  passion; this sweeping denunciation of  Christianity, labor organizations and  Its leaders resorted^to by some apostles  of socialism, does not appeal to, but  rather repels the thinker, and ls appreciated only by the mob whose unthinking tyranny and Intolerance  would, if in power, inaugurate an era  of anarchy that would blight for ever  our hopes of evolving an economic condition, where man to man shall  brothers be for a' that. C. FOLKS'.  Vancouver, B. C, Sept. 10, 1002.  SML M SHOOT OLD  WORKERS?  EDITOR FLETCHER SPEAKS  A E. Fletcher, of the London Daily  Chronlcle,  one of the British journalists who have been touring   Canada,  addressed the Socialists of Vancouver  last Sunday night In the Sullivan hall.  He said that the century   just closed  started in life the new   revolutionary  movement.    Referring  to  the  French  revolution, he said that the leaders of  it did not rise to the occasion, and this  fact must be borne   In   mind by the  leaders of'to-day.   The old French .'e-  volutionists trusted  to brute force for  their stability, which must fail sooner  or later.   After this great   revolution  their very, natures became aglow with  many ideals.    The lyear 181.  saw  ;he  end of this great revolution.   The first  efforts of the people then vvas for the  right of tho people to rule, and this is  the tendency of the times. " You ha"e  obtained the abolition of chattel slavery and also the abolition of the property qualification.   But in Great Britain  the people have not tho enfranchisement they wish for. 'There the house  or lodging place has tho rlglit to vote,  and women ara barred from voting.1 A  vory serious effort Is now being,made  by the clergy and  their' supporters to  capture the elementary schools, which  may be the means of wrecking the present government. . "The most important  problem    over    there,"   said   the  speaker,   "which  vve lare  face   to faoe  with, Is the socialist movement.     Tho  socialist movement is rapidly becoming  a middle-class 'movement.    The  .best  scholars, such as school teachers, clergymen,  legal men, and the like,    nre  taking a hand in it."   It was a mistake  to give Karl Marx the credit of being  the founder of scientific socialism.   The  father  of  the  Irish   land    movement,  William Thompson, a landlord,  awo'.te  one morning to find   that he was the  founder of scientific socialism.   He became  associated   with    Robert  Owen,  and when he died he left his whole estate to be used In the cause.   But his  will  was protested   as being an  immoral one, and it   took the courts 35  years to decide to break it.   John Ruskin was another who had a powerful  influence in educating the people along  the lines   of   rational socialism.    The  right distribution of wealth Is the reason for its production; it was Ruskin  who exposed the old Manchester school  of   political   economy, and   now   the  "devil take    tho    hindmost" school of  political   economy   Is   passing    away.  -It-is-held-by sonie'thatsocialisiiir'wefe  It adopted, would    destroy family life.  This Is a fallacy.   For capitalism is now-  destroying it.   Atheists vvho aro socialists object to tho actions of pi losts who,  by their teachings of   Clirist,  enslave  the people,  when    the   sermon on the  mount teaches us the very reverse. Tho  socialists aimed lo apply its teachings  to practical politics.  The republican movement hi England  Is dying out. At one time there was ai  many as 100 republican societies, and In  tiie seventies three'members vvere returned to parliament���Sir Cbalies Dilke,  Bradlaiigh  and  .    War will  cease some day bocnuso of Its folly.  The only war ho knew of In England  justifiable vvas   the   one In wbleh tlie  Should old workers who reach the ago  of 43 be taken out and shot? That was  a suggestion made the other day at a  labor meeting In Chicago. There ls little use for the old man ln business life,  these days, unless he be at the head of  the business. The cry goes up everywhere for young men. This Is made  plain to anyone vvho endeavois to secure employeinent for any man past his  vigorous youth. Experience, the old^r  men who are looking for jobs will sav,  counts for nothing. Youth Is content  with smaller pay, because youth has  hope and ambition to feed upon. Whoever the argument be, the fact remains  that the man of -15, or thereabouts, ��'ho  finds himself out ot a job, has a hard  time getting another, as hundreds of  men here or any other city will  acknowledge, and tho hard time ls  rendered harder bj; his constant facing  of the insinuation that he is a "back  number." Perhaps his position is rendered no more pleasant by the semi-  serious proposal, that lt would be better for himself and for everybody else  If he were taken out in some v.ica.it  lot and shot like a glaridered horse or  eminent cannot very well take him oul  and shoot him. We would not advise  him to shoot himself. We might hang  lilm If he thinks It would Improve matters by shooting somebody else. All of  which Is very logical, hut what hope  is there lu it for the man of 45, or  older, who, for no other reason or fault  than his age, walks the streets vainly  seeking woik while his wife and children are starving?

Probably  tering   upon   work  formerly  done   by  men, for that simply transfers the mis-  cry of the situation to another quart?!'.  Of course thoro are many men of -15,  and much older, who have no trouble-  in securing positions, but they aie exceptional men.   They usually are men  of special capabilities.    They are mon  who liave kept up vvith the times,   and  kept young  in spirit while so  dolus;.  Still this does not mitigate the condition for the man who'has no espe^iul  capabilities and no adaptability/which  latter would seem,'in these days, to he  much more important, since,  in    most  cases, the older man out .of a job is in  that   predicament because ' of    some  change in. the methods of work   that  renders him unnecessary in the lines of  effort to which he has been accustomed.  The bold fact seems  "to   be that the  worker of the futuie must bo a man  vvho will have the qualities    that will  either put him beyond' the need of employment  after 45 or  will render hlni  useful through superior Intelligence for  the years beyond "that age.   The man  vvho works In future must bo a man in  whom are cultivated capabilities    ind  adaptabilities more   varied than hav;  been customary In the past.   The worker will have to learn hovv to save himself and better himself,  while putting  forth his best effort when young, and  what Is, perhaps, more important, will  have to save his money   against  ihe  time when the boos may come arou.id  nnd tell him'that it's too bad, but the  necessities of business compel letting  hlni out because he is getting to be "a  little slow."     That   the . majority   of  workers cannot meet the requirements  here  suggested,   is  only, too    certai'i.  All men cannot be first-class workmen.  Many must inevitably be crowded out  of their places.

A great deal has been written in tho  past few weeks, or since the Boors  completed the linos of invostmont  around tho town of Ladysmith, about  tho naval guns of Hor Majesty's ship  Terrible, wliich woro rushed into the  town at tho last moment, and nro popularly supposed to have "saved it from  destruction." These guns have been  stated ns bolng of various calibres,  ranging from thrco-inch up to six-  ineh. As n mailer of fact, thoy were  of two sizes, four of them being tho  naval 12-pounder gun.- of which tlio  Tcrriblo carries 18, and tho othor two  being l.T-inch rnpid-llro guns, which  must hnvo boon taken from ono of  tho second-class cruisers on tho South  African station, as tho Torriblo does  uot include any guns of that cdlibro  in hor hnttorios.  As the methods of niirantiiiRgunson  shipboard and for uso in tho Hold aro  entirely differonfc, it was nncoswu-y to  hastily improvise somo form of field  mounting for the  navy   guns Which  would serve the purpose. For the  12-  ' pounder  gun,   which    weighs   1,314  pounds, Capt. Scott  of  tho  Torriblo  used a pair of  heavy  wagon wheels  and a stout block of timber, the' timber serving as a trail. Tho yoke which  carries tho trunnions of the  gun was  bolicd securely to(ltho  timber,   which  was itself fastouod to the axlo  of  the  wheols.   A shoebrake  was used for  taking the recoil; tho shoo   boing  attached to the ond of the  trail by a  longth of wire rope    The four guns,  as thus improvised, , are  much  moro  powerful  weapons  than  tho    three-V  inch 12-pounders of the regular  field  batterios and the horse artillory guns,  which w-oig'n rospeetivoly 7S1 and G72  pounds.   Tho   former  has a muzzle  velocity   of   1,553  feet   per    second,  whereas tho naval  gun,   which   is  a  much longer weapon, has a velocity of  2,210 feet per soeond.   The  oxtromo  rango of tho regular field guns of the  artillery is 5,000 or G,000 yards, whore-  as those improvised naval guns have  a range of S,000 yards.    Tho  -1.7-iueh  rnpid-iire guns fire a 45-pouud lyddito  shell with'a muzzle velocity of 2.SS8  feet por second; and as its muzzle energy is about 1,500 foot- tons, it can bo  seen that the question of nrovidiug  a  sufficiently socuro  liiounling lo withstand the recoil wns  a .serious  one.  Caplain Scott ovoreamo tho difficulty  by using several longths of heavy  12  by 12 timbers.   Two  of these, 10 foot  in length, wero placed   pnrallol  with  tho axis of the gun; above theso were  bolted two other   lengths   of timber,  and upon the  platform  thus formed  was bolted down tho bnsleplate of tho  regular mounting.   Ono  of  tho  guns  was fired with nn elevation of 24 decrees and a rango of 12,000 yards, and  it was stated by an eye  witness  that  tho effect ou tho platform wns scarcely perceptible.  The valuable work which hns been  one by theso guns is well known to  tho outsido world, nnd whilo it is too  much to say tliat Ihey "saved Lady-  smith," there is no question that they  served very materially to keep down  the lire of tho Boor sicgo guns, among  wliich there seem to bo several loug-  calibro Canot piecos'of groat range.

First-class horses   belonging to the higher priced markot  classes have always been, in demand  at profitable prices, and it is on this  kind of horses that tho farmer   will  make his prolit.  On the othor hand the farmer who  breeds anything he may happen to  havo regardless of weight, conformation and quality, to any stallion  that may be at hand, whether light  or heavy, scrub or pure bred, or in  other'words, the inan who simply  breeds his mares without any defln-  ilo purpose in mind, paying no at-  ti'n tion . to ' t!^; market demands and  classes, will not only fail to make a  profit, but by producing "misfits,"  lie wiil help to bring about a condition similar to that which existed a  few years ago  Tho hoise business, (.which is in tho  hands "of so many different individuals, can easily be overdone. It will  bo five oi six yeais before tho colts  of 1003 will be marketable. In that  time trio number of horses may increase several times, and unless particular attention is given to the  kind bred, there will bo such a large  number of unclassed horses that the  market will go to pieces, leaving the  farmer the suck to hold, that is, a  lai^e number of cheap hoises on his  hands  A FARM WATER SUPPLY.

Of course- this alleged "waste" of money  vvas promptly opposed and voted  against by Aldermen Foreman, Wylie  and Urown. Our .so-called hospital Is  more of a, slaughter-house for hti-  ri-nns than'a hospital for thc sick, and  altogether run loo much on tlie .cheap.

"Is it any use to nave a trained nurse  now? We have run the hospital for fifteen years without one. It's too expensive a business," said Alderman Brown  last Monday night.  For once Alderman Wylie made a  good point at the council board. The  i lerk had duly called the roll of aldermen and said there was a quorum pres-  cnt. He- then started reading the minutes, and one oi two aldermen retired,  Ifav ing no cpiorr.ni. Alderman Wylie  dievv the attention of the mayor to this  I'.tct, who should at once have left the  throne and declared the council adjourned. AldrriTiiiii' Wrood was in the  adjoining room and heard the discus  slon, and rushed unjust in the nick of  lime to save the situation.  Alderman McQueen last Monday night  referred to the matter of allowing a  boy to drive the'1 hospital ambulance.  He said that steps vvouid be takt-n lo  have this thing adjusted.   This is well.

He  was In tho best of spirits, and predicted a big convention. Ralph Smith today, notwithstanding the miners of  Nanaimo to the contrary, stands as  tbe foremost man in the Canadian  labor movement. He Is one of the most  practical and honest men In public life  In the Dominion, and, possessing the  marvelous ability which he docs, will  not remain under the tide of temporary  defeat any more than a cork will stay  under water. Were Ralph Smith n  weak man he would have sunk to rise  no more in the Hood ot ungrateful labor  that has so often turned down some  of our brightest and best men. Labor  has too few strong men, and It can ill  aiford to lose any that it has.  Suppose every labor union In Amerl  cn_yvere_to_dlshi;ncl_nnd throw away  their charters, and every man, no mailer what may hi- his calling, should undertake to work independently of any  organisation, to hoe his own row, to  paddle his own canoe, to go ll alone,  what would be the result? The man  vvho can't answer that question ought  to go to an asylum for idiots and 1m-  Tho comedy of receiving the police  committee's report by the city council,  played last Saturday night in chambers,  as a mirth-provoking farce was certainly a success. It was regrettable that  Alderman McQueen took the stand he  did under the circumstances.' We say  his because Mr. McQueen is cne ot the  honorable and straightforward men the  city has in the council. There can now  only be but one conclusion drawn for  the motive of the kite police investigation, and that was to prove the assertions of certain people at thc last municipal campaign vthat last year's city  council and the license board allowed  wholesale gambling and selling liquor  after hours', therefore they shopld bo  turned out, and they were on these  grounds. Aldc-iman Wood, who was  chairman ot thc police committee last  >oar, stilted in open council  lhat there-        was        no more  gambling going on last year than this.  And his statement has certainly been  borne out by the facts brought out in  tho police investigation. Everybody is  morally coi tain that the Chinese carry  cr. gambling in hidden places, and so do  the whites, but to prove it in thc courts  is'another thing.

Sir,���AVhat's  the  matter    with    the  ��� unions of this city getting up an old-  fashioned "bee," nnd fix up our Union  .hall?   It needs to be papered,    kalso-  rmined,   painted,   and   generally    overhauled. ' We have the men if we have  r.ot the money, and let us get together  .and do the Job.   Those who can't do  .any of the work, let them contribute  .a day's, wages, which will go towards  '.buying ^the   material _ and   paying   oft!  the mortgage. ' Will some delgate bring  this up in the Trades council?  G.  MACDONALD.  . Vancouver, Sept. 11, 1902.  NANAIMO MINERS.  " To the Editor ol Tin: Independent:  Sir,'-The Canadian Socialist is trying  '��� . to teach Its grand-mother to suck eggs  v\hen  it advises  the Nanaimo miners  > what course to pursue, and what body  to affiliate    with.- This is, to say the  . leapt, rather cheeky. If the Nanaimo  miners would do , Just the opposite to  -uhat tlie Canadian Socialist suggests,  Ihey would act according to the con-  . slituiion of the Dominion Trades Con-  . giets. The charter they.;work .under,  cannot be annulled whilst there are'  beven men 'In the union who wish to  keep it up. If the 2C0 men who voted In  ���favor of the Coi gress are ln earnest,  - they sliould hold  their meetings regu-  Jlarly, as before- They are all right, and  would be a.-tlioutand times better off  ��� without ��� those' discontents In their  ranks.    When    the Canadian Socialist  ���prints stuff about unions, those interested should, find out what it wants to  talk about, because it tries tb maici  people believe one thing when the con-  ��� trary is the case. As for those men  ; having sons In government positions, I  . don't seo anything wrong ln that If all  Is title that I hear, for a person connected  with ' the    Canadian    Sooilalst  ,  would have been a son of a government  ofllclal If intriguing nnd gall could have  gained the position, and why this- cry  ;Js coming from this source is only an-  . other proof of mnn's inconsistency. The  Nanaimo mineis can nm their own business without  pointers from the .Canadian .Socialist or anybody else, I have  r not the least doubt.  J. H. WATSON.  Oi'saniw.' Dominion Trades Congress.

To thc IMitor of Tub Indkimindext:  Sir,���Being a  busy man these  times  I  have  not   been  able   to answer   the  . letter of August 23rd, signed  by  that  mighty    exponent    of    unionism,   Mr.  Lamrick,  although  it hardly deserves  ���much attention, and were It not for the  fact that he seems to try to disprove  and flatly contradict some of my stata-  ments I should  have  passed  It over.  It may be presumption on my part In  my humble sphere of life to criticise  such   an   opponent,  but  as  facts are  stubborn  things,  and not being given  to perverting the  British  language,  I  must again state that there are union  clerks'  cards  displayed in Vancouyor,  and .Mr.  Lamrick displays woeful  ignorance of the affairs of his own union  when  denying  such    statement.   Pre*  vious to the removal ot a large clothing  store a week or so ago there was a  retail clerks' card ln 'a show case on  the counter.   I have not been Into the  new store yet, tbu t'i expect to seo it  again when I do^ visit lt.   With regard  to  Mr.   Lamrick's   opinion   as   to   the  duty of all union men asking for the  card, he has preached it so often that  It Is time worn and only further proves  my contention of onesidedness.   As to  my  estimate of clerks    being    drawn  from one, I have had the pleasure to  live In several boarding houses (about  20  years'   experience ln  almost  every  country  under the sun;' this accounts  for my narrowmindedness) where there  were  several  in .all  branches.'  I  have  even known1 clerks'to object to work-1  ing  men ���'.being   In.-the    same chouse.  T'here was one boarding house in Vancouvor   to   please   them   tried   to   run  two tables, and it  was a crime for a  workman to sit with the clerks.   Now,  Mr. Lamrick should not' give the grocery clerk away, and working men are  not supposed to know-such secrets the  way   he  does.'   Manual   labor,    'indeed  but he might have added menial, such  as many mechanics would refuse to do,  nevertheless you must understand they  are  business    men.   As  to    capitalises  leaving a store If the .clerks were more  manly,   that   wo'uldi stion   cease.   Anyway these cases are,mostIy imaginary,.,  What would they do if nil the stores  weie to employ union clerks?   What is  the difference  between  tt  clerks'-card  and  the  tailors, waiters and barbers.  You   find   them   displayed   in   all   the  windows.     Does ' the   capitalist keep  away from thein? .As a rule the capitalist does not bother his head about  such things, only when he gets plnclnd  personally.  'When I walk into the res-  taui'.int where I eat I see the waiters'  card in the window,   t go ln perfectly  satisfied   it, Js   a,, fair labor  establlsh-  ��  ���  :9  ��� 9  ��� 9  -  9  -9  9  *9  9  ���-9  9  va  ��  ��  e  -��  o  �����  e  . a  9  ���9  9  in mi  Is a guarantee of good workman- ���  ship.

If the card disappears   t 'disappear   with    it.   Quite  simple,   you' know,' but  very effective.  As for the yellow plague, it would take  too long to prove it.   I will probably  write on that alone some other time,  and I hope I will prove my statement  and   show   how   the   Province   dodger  gulled   the  people  of B.   c,   and   -.he  storekeepers   swallowed   It,   the   clerks  -with-lliem.-Whflt-lniagl mii y-structurss  have  fallen   since.   Now  the  fact   :e-  nialns   that   union   clerks   want   every  one else to assist tliem without assisting themselves.   Let them get up and  be  doing.   When   they    show  us  Ihey  mean business they need not be afraid  of assistance, but lot it be in a manly,  straightforward  business  way;   not   In  a mean,  underhanded secretive wny���  ticket In pocked only to bo shown when  asked for.   Let them meet men as men.  Where   would  some  of  the   -grnndMt  unions   to-day have  been   If  they had  been  afraid  of their musters,   If their  meiiibeis   Iind   not   been     prepared   to  fltnnil together and demnnd lights aud  fight for them, very often In thc minority.   Sneaklsh  tricks only last u short  while, and end In disgrace and distrust,  finally evaporate, leaving things worse  than   they  were   before.   Open   determined  action  demands respect all the  world over,  from all classes, friend or  foe.   I heartily endorse the passage of  united   action   and   brotherly    feeling,  but let all sections be open and above  board, and I would like to see brotherly  feeling displayed by tho writer In his  actions, not so much by words, as cer-  Following is the platform adopted at  the Kamloops convention of the Provincial Progressive Party:  That this party lays It dowii as a  first principle that they will nominate,  endorse or support only such man as  will place their signed, undated, resignation In the hands of the convention  which' nominates or endorses/ them;  that this resignation be sworn to; that  this resignation may be handed in- to  the lieutenant-governor ln council  whenever a majority of the convention  shall consider such action advisable.  1.

Compulsory arbitration of labor  disputes.  10. Restriction of'Orlental Immigration by a law on the lines of the Natal  act, and if said la.w be disallowed, lt  be repeatedly re-enacted until the end  sought is attained.  11. That to protect us from Asiatics  already In the province .the government  insert a clause in Ul private acts to  this effect: "Thla act shall be null and  void if the company falls to enter Into  an agreement with the government as  to conditions 'of construction and operation,"' and that the house- pass a  resolution 'to 'prohibit the employment  of Asiatics on all franchises granted  by the provincial house.  12.

Many sly attempts were made to capture my young  henrt, but I nobly resisted them. Iu  time I came to be known ns "Cold Storage Sammls," nnd many a man patted  mc on the shoulder and said:  "Boy, would that I had your strength  of will to resist the soft smiles of n  blnck eyed typewriter with peachy  cheeks!"'  But fnte was lyingin wait for me,  and I knew it uot. One day a young  woman named Sarah appeared in the  office of the Tar and Rosin syndicate  as typewriter, aud when she had tnndo  "BAMMIS, I DOTE ON FUESH JtOASTED PEANUTS."  her first trip in my elevator 1 know  that I was a lost toy. She hnd wavy  hnlr and teeth of gold, and her smile  was as gentle as powdered sugar. As  the elevator wabbled upward I turned  pale nnd red and felt shnky ln the  knees. Sarah noticed my confusion,  nnd, laying her hand on my arm, she  softly whispered:  "Sammls, .1 dote on fresh ronsted  peanuts. I believe I could ont a peck  of them.".  That wns sufficient for me. All  thoughts of thnt gigantic mortgage  Oed nway, and within an hour n large  nnd generous bag of peanuts rested at  her right hand ns she worked the keys  nnd chnwed. Love came to me with  tbe suddenness of snow sliding off thc  roof of a houso. My mind wns in such  a. whirl thnt night ns I went homo that  I forgot to heat the conductor out of  my faro, and I actually got up nnd offered an old woman my Eent.  "Sammls," snid ray mother when sho  snw that my nppotlte wns gone nnd I  no longer cured to be a great man. "if  you have fallen ln lovo do not hesitate  to confide In your mother. She will  save you if anybody can. Even If you  nre engaged she will find a way of escape."  But I lied to her nnd mnde out that  _I_had_a_lnme_back_nnd_.trpuble__wit_h  my left lung. I did not want to bo  saved. I wanted to go to bed lhat night  and dream of Sarah's gold teeth and  wavy hair. The next morning there  were gnuidrops on her typewriter.  They were from me. She came and  waited for mc nt the seventh Iloor,  nnd as we were alone for n moment  she playfully pinched tuy ear and  Biild:  "Sammls. I don't see how any girl  can help falling in love with you.  Some day you may bring me a box of  chocolate creams."  She had them ere the sun went  down, and next morning she had n  bouquet .of roses which cost me a  plunk nnd a hnlf. In return for them  she gave me a smile thnt displayed all  her golden teeth clear back to the last  ono. I wanted to die for her that day  to prove my love, but I was kept so  busy in the elevator that I had no opportunity lo throw myself from n window or send out after poison. I did  make myself a hero, however. I caught  rt district messenger boy loafing around  on the ninth floor and walloped him till  be bellowed for mercy. For the next  two weeks all my falary wont for  candy nnd peanuts nnd bouquets, nnd I  lied to my truMing mother nnd told  her thnt I hnd to glvo It up for police  protection. On two occasions Sarah  permitted me to take ber out to lunch  ond nay the shot and I hnd to borrow  uy street car fare home. It wns after  the second lunch that Mr. Rasher sent  for me and suid:  "Sammls, there Is complaint that your  elevator wabbles as you tnke people up  ind down. Are you losing your nerve?"  "No. sir."  "Then be a7 little more careful. A  wabbly .elevator scares tenants out of  a building."  It wns my love for Sarah that wabbled the elevator, nud 1 mnde up my  mlud tbnt matters had reached a crisis.  One noon, when she had pulled my car  aud asked me to bang my hair for,her  sake, I followed her into her room nnd  laid my young and bursting henrt at  ber feet. Sho laughed at me. With  her mouth full of chocolate creams,  bought witb my cash, she laughed'ine  to scorn. She lay back and laughed.  nnd she stood up and laughed, mid  when I had been crushed to earth she  said:  "Now, bubby, run along and get me a  bunch of violets to wear to the theater  tonight. I am going with Mr. Oris-  coll." "  I went out of that room n frozen boy.  All my confidence In humanity was destroyed In a moment. Never, never  again, could I believe ln the integrity  of woman. I sought iny home and fell  upon the bed, and 1 was doctored for  fits, loss of memory, blood poisoning  and malaria.. It was touch and go,  but I rallied, nnd inside of a week 1  was able to return to my elevator.

Pup Ferkln>, Poitmailtr, Relate* a  Patrletlo Incident In Wblcb a Committee at Three Got Into a Dispute  and Thumped Ench Other.  [Copyright, 1901, by C. B. Lewis.]  P to five years ngo tbe town of  Jericho used to get up nnd  howl over the glorious Fourth,  and It yelled louder, cheered  hnrder and burned more powder than  nny town of Its size iu the state. Then  n sad event took plnce, nnd there has  been no celebration since nnd mny not  be for five years'to come.  " Along the first of June, when a pub-  tic meeting was hold nnd committees were appointed, Squire Joslyn.  Dencon Spoouer uud Darius Stebblns  m  mw-3ii  "Alfti   IS   PAVOB   OF   MT   MOTION   WILL  SAY 'I.'"  were appointed a committee to secure  the services of n Fourth of July orator.  The orator was to read the Declaration  of Independence from the grand stand  nnd then Indulge in some spread eagle  remarks about Lexington. Bunker Hill  and liberty nud start the crowd to yelling. Jericho bad nlwnys had an orator  on that day and paid him $10 for  whooping it up. Two or tliree nights  after the public meeting the committee  on oratory got together to name Its  .mari_a'ud. notify blm. Squire Joslyn  'took" the chair and rapped for order,  nnd there wns the light of liberty in  his eye us he began:  "Feller patriots, I've bin thlnkin'.  I've nlso bin reitdin' up anew on American history. I've also bin out in the  cornfield prnctieiif my voice. 1 kin  read thnt Declaration from start to  finish and not skip a word. I kin tell  about Lexington nntl Bunker Hill as  well as if I had laid down my life on  one of them historic" fields, and I kin  wind up with sich words as will lift  every patriot In this town over the  fence. I've come to the conclusion to  be orator of the day myself. I don't  care nbout the $10, of courso, though  It'll come in bandy to pay taxes, but  I wnnt to show this town of Jericho  thnt there's no cnll to send to Dobhs  Ferry for oratory. All In fnvor of my  motion will say 'I.' "  Nobody snid "I," nnd after n painful pause the squire sat down nnd the  dencon got up.  "Sons of liberty," said he ns ho got  his mouth ready, "we hev jest listened  lo a few remnrks from ono who is  wfiSs' to lay down his life that the  (lag of the freo mny continue to wave  ou. Everybody who has tho honor of  fcnowln' Squar Joslyn knows how self  sacriiicin' he is and must honor hlui  for it. America is wlllin' to accept n  sacrifice from all her sons, but sho  feds thut It ain't fair to ask too much.  As It would be too much to nsk the  squnr, who has had quinsy four different times within the last yenr, to rend  nnd orate for n couple of hours witb  his hat off, this grent nnd glorious nation has requested me to take the place.  I'm willin' to do It. nnd do my best. I  nln't after that $10, though of course  lt will be handed -over to me, but I  shall see to urouso sieh n feelin' of love  of country In this town of Jericho as  r.o livin' man hns even witnessed. I  don't think thnt nny further remnrks  are needed jest nt present and will now  put the motion to vote."  The dencon voted for himself, but  the squire nnd Dnrins Green sat there  ns cold as lumps of ice. When the  dencon bud dropped Into his chair,  Darius got up. It took him a long  minute. Then It took him nnother minuteitolook around aud begin:  "There hns never bin n time since 1  was old 'miff to ride around on a  broomstick that I wasn't willin'to p:mr  out my blood fur my country's sake."  "Jest like me!" whispered the squire.  "And jest like me!" added the deacon.  "And this willin'ness has increased  as I growed older." continued Darius,  "nml today the climax has bin reached.  The country ain't nskln' mo to shed my  blood to prevent the landln' of a tyrant  on these shores, but I hear her voice  callin' on me to step In and make Jerk  cho's Fourth of July eclcbrntlou one  of the grandest successes of the age.  My country says thai 'Squar Joslyn Is  willin' to perish, but hasn't the voice of  an orator,'and she says that Deacon  Spoouer would shed Ills last drop of  bluoil. fur liberty, but hns catarrh In  the head. To save the day I am nsked  to step In "as orntor. Believe me, my  friends. $10 Is nothin' to me, but"���  "I cnll this ineetln' to order!" shouted  the squire lis he rapped on thc desk.  "I move wc adjourn!" yelled the deacon as he clapped on his hat.  "Feller patriots, what's wrong?" asked Darius as he squinted around as if  expecting to see Washington crossing  the Delaware.  "Look here," snld thc squire ns he  stood up wltn flushed fnce. "J hovn't  had the quinsy in over two years!"  "And If nny body 6nys I hev catarrh  In the bead he's a liar!" added tbe deacon.  "Waal, If I'm wrong I ask pardon."  said Darius. "I. simply wnnted you  to know that I was willin' to sacritlee  myself. =-~_i' It. settled that I'm to be  the orator of the day?"  . "Not by a blamed sight!" answered  thc squire.  "Not by a jugful!" replied the deacon. ,  "Then who Is?"  "I urn!" answered both In chorus.  "But I'll bet n farm you ain't!"  Then begun n strangle that will go  down to future generations. Each of  the three wiis linunil and determined  to be orator or "In:.-.!" up tiie county.  The.v talked M'|uirii!e!y. and the.v talked In chorus. They talked of Columbus, tin- Mayflower and tlie bell of liberty, and they talked of Valley Forge,  I.undy's l.ane ami ".oston Harbor.  They called one number patriots and  liars, aud the.v called oue another Tories and heroes.

Like a Chlld.-lmt Hot Forced,  "A trainer must possess two qunllfl-  cations before he can successfully educate a horse to do tbe tricks seen In n  circus���he must possess kindness and  perseverance.  "A veteran trainer selects bis horses  with as much cnre ns it society womnn  plans a purty gown. The candidate for  tbe future upplttuso of the circus going  people of the world must be handsome  In color, us near perfect as possible in  conformation und possess nn even temperament Ills eyes must bu Inrge und  devoid of tbo least truce of vielous-  uess, be must hold bis enrs pointed  slightly forward, untl he must huve'u  sensible looking bend, broad between  the eyes. - Horses that lay bnck lhelr  ears at tbe approach of a man. who  nip viciously nt every passerby' und  whose eyes plainly demonstrate n  mean disposition ure discarded. A  trainer will hutuilc no uniuial of this  kind.  "Once tbo candidate Is selected be is  shipped to the winter quarters of tbe  circus nnd assigned to a comfortable  stall iu a lnrge, clean, well ventilated  barn tenanted b.v several Iiundred bounties of liis kiinl. Good bny und outs ure  his lu abundance, und for several days  he is allowed to rest and become familiar with his surroundings. The trainer  visits him daily nntl bj\spenking kindly and occasionally giving the animal n  bit of sugar gains his confidence. After  a time tlie horse begins to whinny tit  tbe approach of tbe trainer, nml the  bond of friendship ls thus quickly ce-  meutcd.  "Then comes tbe first lesson. The  candidate is introduced to the training  ring constructed near the barn and allowed to wander about at will. Ho  smells the sawdust, the pedestals and  the harness aud ropes that will soon  be buckled about his body aud^lien,  horselike, lies down in the center of the  ring and enjoys a good roll. '  "Next day he is led around and  nronnd the ring for several hours nnd  soon understands lhat he Is expected  to encircle the ring of his own accord.  Then u strap is placed around his right  foreleg, nud from this strap n rope is  run through harness fastened around  his body. The trainer grasps the free  end of the rope iu one band nud u pair  of lines attached to the horse's bridle  In tbe other. Tbe animal is told to  'get up,' nud after tbe ring is encircled  n few times the command 'whoa' Is  given. If tbe horse refuses to obey, n  quick pull on the rope draws his leg  from under him. ami he ts forced to  stop. Ouly a few demonstrations of  this kind are necessary to show the  horse that he must stop when the command is given.  "After these preliminaries are satisfactorily accomplished the equine pupil  is taught to kneel first on oui- knee,  then on the other nud finally on both.  All this Is aeeonipll.slied by drawing  up the front legs, oue at a time, thus  forcing him down. Ills knees unpadded to prevent Injury, and every  time he Is forced down the command  to kneel is given, and the animal is  petted and reassured wllh kind words  until finally he kneels at the word.  "it Is in these preliminary lessons  that a good performer. Is mnde or  spoiled. The Instructor must be linn  and resolute, but kind, always kind. A  horse is liko a child:,you may coax  him. Iiut you can't force without spoiling his disposition.

People who say tills never  saw the Inside of the training quarters  of n modern circus. A horse or any other unlinul conquered ln this way Is  never reliable anil js apt to spoil n performance by un outbreak of bad temper, besides being dangerous to handle.  "The next lesson for the liiii'se Is tho  nrt of lying down nYicl remaining mo  tionlt-SR until the word Is given to rise!  This Information Is imparted to the  horse In n muunor similar lo the kneeling lesson. An ingenious harness  "makes-It- possible ~for-the-tru inor_to-  ilraw the horse down on a soft bed or  bay without Injuring hlni. When the  horse willingly lies down at the word  or command, he Is taught to sit upon  Ills haunches nnd then is gradually  llrilled into the other tricks thai always draw applause from children and  adults alike.  "It Is usually an easy matter to tench  n horse to stand upon a pi-ili-stal. to  waltz, rear on his hind legs uml march  in unison with equine companions nfter these simple lessons nre thoroughly  learned nnd the horse, understands the  trainer Is his friend and not his enemy.  The horse of,-, average intclllgcni'c  learns quickly as soon as be realizes  what Is required'of hlni. The main  requisite on tin- trainer's part Is pa  tlenee, and If u man hasn't got this,  nnd lots of It he hud better keep out or  tbe business. If be gets excited or Impatient nnd goes to hauling the horse  about unnecessarily, the nnlmal Is sure  to become uneasy nud fretful, nnd a  little experience of this kind will spoil  him.

E. r.ni'ihgrevlul;. cominnndcr  of tho antarctic expedition of 1X1S.  nearly lost his life b.v an accident of a  nature so peculiar thnt lt Is probable  no other mun could duplicate the experience.  At thu foot of Mount Terror  * in February. 11)00. lie landed from bis,  ship  with Cnptnln .[onsen  und  three  1 other men. Then, wishing to take a  picture of tbe shore, he sent bin bout  bnck to tbe vessel to get a camera, and  be and Cuptuln Jensen were left alone  on the tough beach. Before the bout  returned u  strange and awful thing  ��� happened. Mr. Iioichgrevink told the  story in tbe Outlook:  A rour nnd u rush, with tremendous  explosions,    shook    the    bench.    Tbe  ��� thought enme to us that the perpendicular rocks above us were fulling. Then  we realized what wns taking place.  The mighty glacier immediately to the  west of us wns giving birth to an ice-  ��� berg.  Millions of tons of lee plunged Into  the ocean. Wc could see nothing beyond nu Immense cloud of rolling  snow. The water rcsc from the plunge  of this antarctic monarch. I sang out  to Jensen, "Now we shall hnve to face'  tbe wave!"  We rushed to the highest point of our  limited bench, four feet nbove the sen.  We snw advancing on us a dark green  ridge with a whito crest. 1 called to  Jensen to struggle for dear life. We  clutched the uneven rocks, with our  backs toward tbe advancing wnter. Although It could not hnve taken moro  thun seven minutes tbe time seemed  long before the wnter closed over our  bends.  Flouting upward, scrambling upon  the rocks, I tore the nulls from my  -_flesh_in_mj__enileuvor_ti>_keep_froui_be-_  ing dragged out After the second  wave we ugnlu felt tbe rocks under  our feet  At tbe place where Jensen and I first  stood the rock wns wet twenty feet  above our beads. It wus somewhat  lower when it struck us. Wlirro tlie  ���wave bud struck with full force the  faco of the rock hud been altered, und  rocks were still fulling when the three  men in tbe bout found us, bleeding and  torn.  Two facts luul saved us. To our rlgl-.i  a small penln.siilu of ice protruded  some live feet from the rock, und the  rock Itself bent toward the west. Froni  tbo moment it struck the curve of the  mountain rock to tbe west of us the  wave took a coursi> more onsderly than  where Jensen nrul I stood.  When the weather is hot tho sands  of thc littlo lifo nro apt to glide  away beforo you know it. You can't  watch thu littlo ono too carofully at  this period.

At tho first sign of  any of thoso, or uny of the other ailments that afflict littlo ones, givo  Baby's Own Tablots. Theso Tablets  will speedily relieve and promptly  cure all hot woalhor ailments. Kcop  them in tho house���their prompt use  may save a precious little lifo. Mrs.  Herbert Burnhnm, Smith's Falls,  Ont., says : "When my oldest child  was six weeks old ho had an attack  of cholera infantum and wns at  death's door. My doctor advised me  to use Baby's Own Tablets, and in  twenty-four hours baby was bettor,  the \omiting and purging censed and  ho regained strength rapidly. I havo  used tho Tablets for other ailments  since and always with the happiest  results. I can sincerely recommend  them to mothers as a medicine that  should always be kept in the houso."  Little ones thrive, aro good natur-  ed and grow plump and rosy in  homes where Baby's Own Tablets aro  used.

There is very littlo doing in Manitoba wheat and tho business for the  season 1901-2 is getting pietty woll  wound up.
