Britsh Parliament Dissolved
Struggle Between Lords and Commons on the Veto Question
Precipitates General Election   -   Power of the Lords
Will Be Greatly Curtailed
The second Parliament in the
reign of the Late King Edward VII.,
which met on Feb. 15 last, was
dissolved Monday in pursuance of
the programme of the Liberal
government to go before the
country on the. question bf the prerogatives of the House of Lords.
The King's speech was notable
for its brevity, the only reference
to the constitutional crisis being an
expression of regret because the
conference between the leaders of
the opposing controlling parries
had failed of an agreement as to
the reformation of the upper chamber.
The dissolution, says a later dispatch, brings to a crisis the supreme
.struggle now in progress to limit
the legislative powers of the House
of Lords and thereby permit the
elective branch of Parliament, the
House of Commons, to exert larger
powers in affirming legislation,
more particularly measures relating
to Irish home rule and the financial
The present House of Commons
has a ministerial majority of 124!
and the present standing of the
various members is as follows:
. Liberals, 275 ; Labor members, 40;
Nationalists. 71 ; Independent
Nationalists, II; Unionists, 273.
Ofthe entire foregoing, the first
groups are generally counted as
supporters of the ministry, giving a
ministerial strength of 398, as
against the Unionist  strength of
7-. The last general election^follow-
. ed dissolution of January 10-last.
Prior to that the ministerial tnajctrity
was 334. The former dissolution
was also based on the issue; of the
House oj Lords, Premier Aspuith
having introduced a resolution declaring that the refusal of the Lords
to enact the-financial budget passed
by the Commons had constituted
a ''breach of the constitution and1
a usurpation of the rights of the
Rival Proposals From the Government
aad the Lords
The News-Advertiser in a recent
editorial,thus sums up the situation:
Alternative veto schemes are now
before the British people. Lord
Landsdowne has given notice of
> his plan for the settlement of disagreements that arise between the
House of Lords and the House of
Commons* His programme must
be reac in conjunction with the reorganization proposition already
submitted to the House of Lords
and adopted. Thus the conservative platform now provides—
That no man can inherit a seat
in the House of Lords.   *
Thus the Lords of Parliament
shall comprise three groups: one
elected by peers from among
themselves, one holding seats by
virtue of office or position in the
nation, and one elected by the
outside people in some way to be
That the chamber so reformed
shall forego the right to deal with
money bills, in which the provisions
arepurely financial.
That in respect to otHer legislation, if the two chambers are unable to agree in two successive
sessions, they may meet together
and determine the issue on a joint
vote, providing that in grave questions the issue may be submitted
to the electors by the referendum.
No. method is suggested to determine whether a questibn is grave
enough for a referendum, but it is
proposed that a joint committee
shall decide whether money bills
have other and foreign matters
concealed on their premises.
As opposed to this programme
the, government submits no readjustment or change in the constitution of the House of Lords, But
Mr. Asquith proposes—
That the Houre of Lords shall
not interfere with money bills, and
the House of Commons shall determine whether a measure pro
posed is a genuine financial measure.
That all other measures shall
become law if three times passed
by the House of Commons in suc-
cescive sessions in the course of
two years or more, though the
House of Lords shpuld reject it on
every occasion.
Mr. Ajsquith also proposes that
no parliament shall continue for
more than five years. Incidentally
he promises to introduce a measure
for the payment of members.
Power of the Lords Restricted in
Any EVent
It is clear that important const!
rational changes are impending.
In any case the power of the House
of Lords will be greatly restricted
Should the government programme
prevail the Lords will possess only
a suspensive power, and that only
applying to certain classes of legislation, and suspending only for two
years, without the right of referertce
to the electorate. Should the conservatives win there will be a formal surrender of power over money
bills, which power has not been
generally exercised except in cases
where it has been alleged that
other legislation has been "tacked"
on. In respect to other legislation
the power of absolute veto will be
lost, but large authority would
remain in the right to a joint vote,
and in grave questions the power
to order a reference to the people.
^Referendum New to BritUIyPolitk^
Neither the referenduir^iujfxtbe
joint vote is-known to the constitution ' of Great Britain. But both
are familiar in some of the self-
governing {dominions. The constitutions of Australia and South
Africa provide methods of ending
a deadlock between the two
chambers. Joint sittings and compulsory dissolution are the remedies
The referendum has been in use in
the Dominion of Canada and in
most of the provinces, though not
for the purpose that Lord Landsdowne proposes. It is also known
in Australia and New Zealand as
is means of ascertaining public
opinion on certain questions.   . ■
Kelowna Fruit for
Old Country
F. R. E. DeHart Gathers Car of
Choice Apples for Dominion
Government Experts to Give
Short Courses
Coming Agricultural
That Kelowna's fruit ranks high
in the estimation of all - who have
to do with the advertising of
Canada's rescourses to the folks
across the sea is evidenced by the
car of choice fruit which has just
been shipped by" Mr. F; R. E. De-
Hart at the request of the Dominion
The apples, which comprise
several varieties, are intended to
be exhibited by the government at
the great Empire Show in London,
which is being organized by that
prince of exhibition planners, Mr.
Imre Kiralfy, in honor of the
coronation of King George, which
takes place sometime-next June.
At the great Empire Show all parts
of the King's domains will be represented by characteristic scenes
and products.
The car of Kelowna apples consists of 400 boxes. Of those Mr.
Thos. Bulman has contributed 45
boxes of Baldwin and White Winter
Pearmain; Mr. Reekie, 109 boxes
of Ben Davis and Rawies Jenat;
Vernon Fruit Co., boxes of Lawver,
Spitzenburg and Yellow Newtown;
Mr. John Woolsey, Yellow Newtown ; the Farmers' Exchange siip-r
plying the balence, chiefly Ben
The fruit will go first to Montreal
where it will be placed in cold
storage, to await shipment to the
Old Country. ~

Tennis Court Turned
into Skating Rink
Arraangenients are being made
to utilize durin',r the winter months
the gronuds of the Kelowna Teft-
nis Club as a seating rink. Messrs.
E. G. and Walter Fuller have leased
the grounds for the season, and
are already busy making preparations for flooding them as soon as
the weather is suitable. The tennis
court which was carefully leveled
and enclo/ed for the summer game
at the beginning of the year are
admirably adapted for receiving a
covering of ice, and provided the
promoters are favored with a fairly
continuous spell of frosty weather
Kelowna skaters should have the
best place yet provided for the indulgence in the popular winter
An inner sheet of ice, 60 x 130
feet is to be fenced around and
kept clear for hockey.. Around this
will be a 15 ft. strip for skating.
Four of the old gasoline street
lamps are to be resurrected for the
lighting of the rink by night, and
placed ond on each side should
provide ample illumination.
The dressing room provided by
the tennis club is to be enlarged,
and many other improvements for
th econvenience of visitors made.
Although Kelowna's winter is
very apt at times to take on more
the appearance of summer, but
given anything like favorable
weather conditions, Messrs, Fuller
are confident that the advantages
of the place will prove sufficient
attraction to make the project
A. Lucas Takes Seat Without
Mr. Alexander Lucas, the conservative nominee in the Yale by-
election has been elected by acclimation, the liberals failed to produce a cahidate, and the Independent Canidate, T. E. Julien, evidently regarded the fight as hopeless
and did not" stand fdr nomination.

St. Andrew's Day (which was
yesterday, the 30th) held a Scotch

Mr. H. A. Grey, the new Leader of the
Kelowna Band - •
The new band leader, Mr. H. A.
Grey, is making an effort to arouse
interest in the band.-which has of
late dwindled somewhat iii numbers and enthusiasm.   In order to
increase the membership  and  get
together a strong combination  of
efficient players, Mr Grey offers to
take a class of learners and  train
them for duty with the band when
the season opens again next year.
There should be many young men
around town who have the latent
musical talent to make good bandsmen, and if such  can  be got to
communicate early with Mr. Grey,
in order that a course of practise
might be carried on through the
winter   months,   Kelowna   would
next year would have a reserve of
competent musicians which would
insure a band worthy of the town.
In order to stimulate interest in
the band Mr. Grey is arranging to
produce a popular comedy some
time in February, and invites those
interested in dramatic work to enter
in and help make it a success-
Mr. Grey is not new to the theatrical work. For several years he
travelled with J. Bannister Howard
and a London company  in  " The
Earl and the Girl," as Jim Cheese.
He has also acted as understudy to
Sir Guy de Vere in " When Knights
Were Bold."

New Development of
Kettle Valley Line
A Penticton correspondent of
the Province states that the Kettle
Valley Railway is planning to link
up Penticton and the Southern Okanagan and the Similkameen, and
the latter district with the coast by
a system of branch lines. The
company will apply to parliament
next session for an act changing its
name from the Kettle River Valley
Railway Company, to the Kettle
Valley Railway Company, the
name by which it is now con.monly
known, and authorizing it to construct a branch from Penticton by
the most feasible route to a point
on the international boundary at or
near the shore line of Osoyoos
This will connect Penticton with
the rich district directly south, and
will make the town an important
distributing point, as all produce,
etc., destined for the coast or other
parts of the province from Southern
Okanagan and Similkameen will
pass through Penticton.
The application to parliament
also provides for the construction
of two other branches. One of
them is from a point on the company's line ajready authorized, which
is understood to* be either Merritt
or Penticton, by the most direct
route to a point at or near Allison
or Princeton. The third branch is
from the Coldwater River to the
Fraser river, and to Steamboat
Mountain mining camp. By these
branches the Kettle Valley Railway
Co. will provide transportation
facilities for Southern Okanagan,
Similkameen add Nicola, and will
enter the list as a formidable rival
of the V., V. &E. Railway.

Canada'e population in 1901 was 5,371,315,
on July 31, 1908 the Census Bureau estimate a population of 6,940,304.
Assuming these figures to be correct the
population on 31»t July, 1910 will not ex-
ceed 7,500,000.
. Based upon the government's report of
the consumption of liquor in Canada it has
been very carefully estimated by Mr. F. S.
Spence, Ex-controller of the city of Toronto, that the sum of $76,367,649 was spent
in cash by the people of Canada last year
for liquor.
That this estimate is well within the
mark may be seen from the fact that there
are 6,000 licensed places in Canada, and if
they took in an average of $40 a day and
were opened only 300 days a year would
mean $72,000,000 per year. As a matter
of factjudging by the advertisements of the
hotels for sale as.they appear in the papers,
it is only the very poorest of bars that bring
in so small a revenue. That means an annual average in Canada of more than $10.
per head! men, women andVhildren. And
be it remembered that this takes into account only the cash" that goes into the
liquor man's tills. It does not include the
vast sums required to take care of the fruit
of the traffic, nor yet the loss due to lessened production, shortened lives and damaged property. Many estimate this indirect
loss at a sum greater than the direct cash
cost. Be that as it may the direct cost is
over ten dollars per head.'
Now in order, to grasp the meaning of
these figures let ua make a few comparis-
0n'" *
The wheat crop of the prairies may yield
this year 100,000,000 bushels, and if the
grain nets the producer an average for
good and bad wheat, say 70 cents per bu.,
it will ta^e every kernel produced on the
plains from the Great Lakes to the Mountains to pay the Nation's whiskey bill. The
Canada year book says thet the total value
of the wheat harvest in the north- west
provinces for 1908 was $72,434,000. Our
liquor bill last year was greater than the
wheat crop of the plains.
If some sudden blight should pass over
the fields and every maturing head be
blasted, it would cause such a panic in
Canada as the country never saw before.
That is what the liquor traffic does—and
does every year. It destroys the cash value
of the entire wheat crop of the plains.-
On the other hand if by virtue in the
sunbeams, or new element in the soil the
crop now ripening should yield just double
its present promise, and 200,000,000 bushels
be reaped and an extra seventy-six millions
of dollars should find their way into the
banks to the credit of the producer, then
we would see such a new dawn of prosperity as would make all the past look dim
beside it. The destruction of the liquor
traffic would have just that effect.
The entire paid up capital of the chartered banks in Canada in 1908 was $96,147,-
526. The direct cost of the liquor traffic
was seven-ninths of the capital of the
chartered banks.
Canada's national debt in 1908 was $408-
207.158, enough to pay our liquor bill for
a little over five years.
Canada spent a trifle over $26,000,000
on her public and high schools in 1908
and three times that much on liquor. One
dollar to make' good citizens and three dollars to degrade them. One dollar to make
strong men and three dollars to make
. The Protestent Churches of Canada raised in 1908 for all their far flung plans at
home and abroad a little less than $20,-
000,000—this is after making liberal allowance for some of the smaher bodies whose
reports are not available. Twenty millions
for the Gospel, seventy-six' millions for
liquor. Twenty millions for all that makes
for bright, happy and prosperous homes;
seventy -six millions for all that makes fer
poverty, crime, misery and ruin. Twenty
millions for heaven—seventy-six millions
for hell.

Dr. Crippen Protests
Innocence to End
Alleged Confession Denied
Dr. Crippen paid the last penelty
of .his crime last week. To the end
he protested his innocence though
reports of a confession, since discredited appeared in the press.
His last statement is published in
a Sunday paper in the fornv of two
final letters to Miss Ethel Leneve.
The letters are not reproduced in
their entirety, it being explained
that they contained personal confidences, but nothing in the nature
of a confession. Crippen throughout declared his innocence. The
letters began with protestations of
love for the girl and repeating con-
standy the phrase " God help us
to be brave in the face of the end
now so soon."

His Disregard of Money and Failure
as a Publisher.
The Mousquetaire, a Parisian journal founded by Alexandre Dumas,
grew and flourished for a short time
and then became extinct. It was carried on during a brilliant existence
with an astonishing disregard of business methods commonly in vogue. Ita
staff was the largest and most varied
ever known. Persons would walk into the office, propose working for the
paper and find themselves at once
accepted. "*$
"What will you allow me?" a new
man would ask.
"Whatever you like, my boy," Dumas would return. "By the way," he
would explain to every new aspirant,
"we must understand one thing: I
mean you to be handsomely paid. You
must have 1,000 francs a month, and
if you should want a month's pay in
advance now don't scruple to ask for
Everybody was dazzled, and Dumas
himself more than all tlie rest. No
business enterprise, however, could
exist on such a basis, and the journal
began to languish. Then a man named Boule proposed taking the speculation out of Dunius' hands. He offered the great man 100 francs a day,
which . eant more than .$7,000 a year.
"Here," said Boule, "is a check
book full of those little tinted leaves
you are so fond of. Every morning
you have only to write your name at
the foot of one, send it into the office
and touch your .'.00 francs."
Dumas loved money, and his face
beamed with delight. "But suppose,"
said he, "that some day 1 should want
300 or 400 francs?"
"Well, all you have to do is to send
in three or four oi your checks. Nothing is more simple."
The book lay on the author's
desk, a delightful and ready resource.
Did a creditor call? A slip of paper,
and he was paid. A poor woman was
about to be turned out into the street.
A few more slips, and she was relieved. At the end of the week nothing
was left of the book but the cover.
Then Boule changed his mode of procedure.
Canada v. Russia.
Canada will still have to "go some"
to overtake the l.ussian Empire'slead
in grain production, as shown by the
comparative illustrations.
Bussia also produced last year
896,835,000 bushels of rye against
Canada's. 1,715,000 bushels.
In peas we compare more favorably,
the figure being 31,189,000 bushels_for
Eussia against our 8,145,000 bushels.
Eussia raised 1,192,240,000 bushels of
potatoes against Great Britain's 137,-
237,109 bushels and Canada's 99,087,
200 bushels.
The comparison of the yield per
acre is of interest, showing that Great
Britain excels us while we excel Russia, though the figures for Eussia are

The Verb "to Strike"  Illustrates th«
Difficulties of English.
The verb "to striki." is likely io
provoke more or lcen bother among
persons seeking to acquire the English language.' It may have any one
of several meaning.-;.
"To strike" means to hit, beat, assault. It is this moaning of the term
that is brought to mind by the spectacle of a blackened eye. Often it
may be avoided by moving on wives
the policeman says so.
"To strike" means n mere attempt
to hit, as when a batter, recording to
reports on the sporting page, "fans
the air," therefore a miss. This sug-
gests a contradiction; but, no matter
—there are others in the language.
"To strike" means to leave a job
because of dissatisfaction with conditions. This sort cf strike is never
a miss, for it h.vs something every
"To strike" v.-hen qualified by the
words "it rich" is to discover while
prospecting a deposit of precious
metal or an ore bearing vein. From
this use the term has been adapted
to express the achievement of sudden
wealth in any field. To make "a
strike" in bowling, however, is different.
Again, "to strike" is to make a ge_i-
tie touch directed toward a friendly
pocketbook. Here the strike is in the
effort and not in the result. Chances
are there will be no result.
A few lines might be devoted to
"pare," "pear" and "pair," identical
in sound, but in nothing else except
spelling by the foolified method.
Briefly, "pare" is a verb meaning
to denude of tegumental covering, but
applies mostly to fruit; also potatoes.
You may pare an apple, which is to
skin it, but you may not pare an elephant, although it is possible to skin
it if you have the elephant. Pear is
a penological product that grows on
a tree. If the tree had but two pears
there would be a pair. A married
couple sometimes constitute a pair.
A pair, in short, is made up of two of
a kind.

A Baby's Tumbling Feat.
In a certain street in Putney, Eng.,
one day recently, a woman with a
baby in a mail cart stepped from the
kerb, behind a van, ^and pushed the
mail cart out into the middle of the
road. A cyclist dashed into the mail
cart. His wheel caught the cart in
the middle, knocked it over on one
side towards the pavement, and sent
baby and pillow flying. The pillow
was shot, low down, to the pavement,
the baby shot up, turned a somersault, and then sat quietly down in
the middle of the pillow, none the
worse for his experience. He wore a
very serious look for some time after,
as if vainly trying to figure out what
had really happened.
Compact Quarters.
It was the tiniest of tiny flats.
"Yes, sir," said the maid, "the stork
arrived with a fine baby boy."
"Great Josephus!" exclaimed Mr.
Flatte, who had been away on a trip.
"That means more room.   Have you
hung the broom in the air shaft?"
.   "Yes, sir."
"And trimmed the leaves of the
rubber plant down to one-half their
normal size?"
"Yes, sir."
"Then take the pet dog to the fancier's and have his tail cut off. We
must economize room some way.

A Bubble In a Sapphire.
There is exhibited in the National
museum at Washington a sapphire
weighing nine carats which contains
a bubble that appears and disappears
with changes of temperature. It is
believed that a cavity in the gem incloses a quantity of carbonic acid gas
under great pressure. When the temperature is such as to correspond with
the "critical point" for that gas under the particular pressure to which
it is subjected in its brilliant prison
house it liquefies and becomes visible
as a bubble.
Shark With 250 Pound Liver.
Singapore has an important shark-
fin trade, which supplies the local
200,000 Chinese with this Oriental delicacy. The $157,753 worth imported
in 1908 came from Borneo, Penang,
Sarawak, Madras, Ceylon, Celebes,
and the Coromandel coasts, and over
half of this amount- was re-exported
to China.
The Malay shark is the most dreaded by the natives. During the terrible disaster to the French steamer
La Seyne from its collision with the
British ship Onda, in the Straits of
Ehio, last November, many of the
ninety passengers lost were, as soon
as they reached the water, seized by
the sharks and dragged beneath the
surface, to be devoured by these fierce
Malayan fish.
Seventeen species inhabit the Far
Eastern seas, some of them attaining
a length of 25 feet. A black-fin shark
was captured some time ago whose
liver weighed 250 pounds.
Blinders and Tight Checkreins Make
Horses Miserable.
Horses are placing mankind daily
under everlasting obligations to them,
says an official of the Humane Society, but how cruelly and thoughtlessly are they repaid by those who
are most indebted to them. A horse
is a noble animal—patient, kind
hearted, self sacrificing, willing to
work till he.dies in hia tracks, uncomplaining, a lover of kind treatment
and who is willing to -work a whole
lifetime with no other compensation
than his bed and board..
Of the many things which make
the daily life of a horse miserable two
are blinders and the tight oheckrein,
the worst parte of a horse's harness..
Very many people believe that they
are part and parcel of a hone and
that he would not be a horse without
The majority of the horses could
readily dispense with Winders, and all
could if they had never been invented. Blinders were first used by a
nobleman in England to hide a defect
on his horse's head and later were"
found excellent locations for the displaying of his coat of arms.
A horse's head was never intended
for blinders, for his eyes are so set in
his head that he can see behind him
without turning his head, and of
course the blinders deprive him- of
seeing the very things he should see
for his own safety as well as the driver's. A horse's eye is a beautiful object, and it is a shame to cover it.
Whenever I see a man driving a
horse without blinders I always feel
like stopping him and shaking hands
with him. A horse'B head is the best
part of him and should have on it as
little harness as possible.
Another instrument' of torture to a
horse is the tight checkrein. It is
responsible for poll evil, abscesses,
sprung knees, paralysis and disorders
of the brain and muscles. It spoils
his appearance.and detracts from his
free and graceful movements. —Horse

The Sexes In Church.
The separation of the sexes aeeai te
have been formerly by ne neazu aa.
uncommon practice in the Ohureh of
England. In fact,-Edward VI.'s prayer
book specially mentions that at the
communion service "the men shall
tarry on one side and the women on
the other." The papers of a church
in Westmorland include elaborate directions for the division of the sexes
at its services. All wedded men were
to be placed first before any of the
young men, and all young wives were
to "forbear and come not at their
mother-in-law's forms"—this was presumably iefore( the days of the pew—
"as long as their mother-in-law lives."
—London Chronicle.
Doctors In Franc*.
A French newspaper publishes soma
statistics showing tne causes of death
in the medical profession. The figures are impressive, but there is no
indication as to the source of information. We read that 44 per cent, die
from heart disease, 20 per cent, from
nervous affections, 20 per cent, from
the morphia habit and 7 per cent,
from tuberculosis. The prevalence of
morphia is ascribed to the fact that a
doctor knows when his malady is incurable, and morphia is sought to
soothe the mind.—London Globe.
A Poet's Pastime.
A magazine editor received a
lengthy typewritten poem the other
day entitled "Falling Snowflakes."
The "snowflakss," having had no return postage attached to them, fluttered lightly into the scrop basket
after the editorial eye had run hastily
over the first lines. The editor gave,
however, a trifle more attention to the
letter because of the following explanatory phrase:
"The inclosed poem wm written
many-years ago by one who has for
a long time slept in the grave merely
as a pastime."
A Vegetating Student.

Shakespeare's Anachronisms.
The very head and front of all of*
fenders in the perpetration of anachronisms was 8hakespeare himself. He
speaks of cannon in the reign of John,
whereas cannon were unknown until a
century and a half later; of printing
in the time of Henry II.; of clocks,
and striking clocks at that, in tha
time of Julius Caesar; he makes Hector quote Aristotle and Coriolanus refer to cats and Alexander; he dower*
Bohemia with a seacoast and makes

A Wise Answer.
The Shah once asked a group oi
courtiers whom they thought the
greater man—himself or his father. At
first he could get no reply to so dangerous a question, the answer to
which might cost the courtiers their
heads. At last a wily old courtier
said,. "Your father, sire, for.-though
you are equal to your father in all
other respects, in this he is superior
to you—that he had a greater son than
any you have."

The American settlers in Alberta
are objecting to the singing of
"Rule Brittania" in the public
A lawsuit which may have some
disturbing political consequences
has been commenced by M. Rerikin,
the Belgian colonial, minister,
against a newspaper, Le Progres.
At the beginning of the year it was
found that the late sovereign's
estate, included a sum of £ 1,200,000
which had been derived from his
personal . administration of the
Congo, and which should have
been turned over to the Belgian
government, with certain other
assets. Le .Progres accused the
colonial minister of complicity in
King Leopold's proceedings by
which the above sum was lost to
the state. -.-■'■
Geo. Dunn was prosecuted at
Hamilton for coughing in the
Baptist church. It appears it \yas
not a natural cough, but one simulated to offend the minister. The
court, after hearing all the evidence
ordered Dunn to give bonds to
preserve the peace in future. Rev.
Mr. Allen prosecuted.
Disgusted with the apparent
apathy of the Dominion"1 government regarding the construction of
a railroad to Hudson Bay, the
provincial grain growers' convention made the first step towards the
construction'"of the line by the
farmers of the three western
provinces. A number of farmers
each subscribed ten dollars toward
the building of the line and a
regular canvas for subscriptions
was made. If funds permit construction will be started at the
earliest possible moment.
A message, telephoned from Ka-
talk has been received announcing

River valley in the Yukon has burst

Swept with terrific force the large
ice masses down the river to the
sea. .Miners' huts were dashed to
.pieces, and the fate of many prospectors is as yet unknown.
The first attempts to apply the
Canada Temperance Act, or " Scott;
Act " in the province are announced for Chilliwack , and Prince
Rupert. The number of names
appended to the petition; asking
that a vote be taken'was 244 in
Prince Rupert* and 149 in Chilliwack. The result of the vote, will
be proclaimed December 16. In
the event of the Scott Act being
carried the law provides that license
holders shall have at least three
months to dispose of their stock.
After the expiration of three
months the law goes into force by
proclamation and no repeal vote
can be taken for three years.

Blackhead, the disease which is
causing alarm among farmers and
poultrymen by killing* off flock
after flock of turkeys, is more widespread than is generally known.
While the greatest losses are in
Eastern Canada, out-breaks are reported from various sections
throughout the Middle West.
Definite instances have been cited
where flocks of forty, sixty and of
seventy-two turkeys have been
wiped out.

A terrible fire is reported from
Newark, N. J., in which some
twenty girls employed in a paper
box factory met their death. In the
panic which followed the outbreak
of the flames, many of the girls
leaped from the upper story windows rather than wait for the fire
brigade to help them.
It is estimated that the terrible
forest fires which have taken place
recently in Idaho and Montana,
have burnt up or rendered useless
six million board feet of timber. In
the former of these states not only
have three billion feet been destroyed, but there is left behind a
burnt district of nearly half a
million acres. In order that the
damaged timber may be removecf
and place given for new timber to
grow, the partially burnt timber
will be sold at once to timbermen.
It is estimated that the amount of
lumber-producing forest burnt is
one or two per cent, of the whole
standing merchantable forest ofthe
United States.
The Northern Construction company of Winnipeg has been given
the contract for the construction of
139 miles of the Canadian Northern line in British Columbia.
A balloon flight from the' Pacific

by the Association of International
Aeronautical Pilots at its annual
meeting in Boston, a few weeks

York, to give $10,000 to finance
the trip besides a trophy valued at
$ 1000., Mr. P. H. Clayton, aide in
the balloon Pommern, which won
the international balloon race of
1908, will be- the pilot of the coast
to coast trip which he is.confident
can be made in four days. A
rubber silk hydrogen balloon from
160,000 to 200,000 cubic feet
capacity will be ordered. Mr.
Thompson makes no ' conditions
other than that the start shall be
made at some place on the Pacific

Easy  Way  In Which the Intent of a

"A joker it* its simplest form con
slsts Id a word or a clause whi«h, introduced Into proposed legislation
filches away from the public its powet
to establish such laws us it desires
either by emasctiluting an enactment,
or by perverting the essence and purpose of it." So writes Samuel Hopkins Adams In Americau Magazine,
and he cites these instances of bow
tbe joker game is worked:
"Sometimes It Is Id one word, as
where tbe sale of a piece of public
property to the lowest bidder was once
authorized. Sometimes It may Inhere
in tbat elusive character, tbe comma,
as in tbe case of tbe tariff clause of aft

costing tbe treasury hundreds of thou

Nobody ever found out whether this

trainers of the schedule never Intended it.

".M. and Mine. X., who are in Instance of divorce, are requested to appear privately before the judge, alone
or with their lawyers, ln order to
come to a reconciliation If possible."
Before the beginning of every divorce case tn Switzerland this notice
is published nnd sent out to tbe interested parties, leaving the couple, of

Molten Rock That Bores Upward
Through the  Earths Crust.
Butbollte is a. lerm Invented Dy the
rreat Germ;i_) geoiugisi Kdmird Huess
o describe the gigamii' intrusions of
uoiteu rock which. a<-ci. niing to him,
)ore their wiiy upward iliriiugh the
:ruat of the earih from' Hie "eternal
lepths" below, cutting through the
itrata and folds of ihe mountains very
nucb as a white bot soldering iron
nay be thrust through a plank, burn-
ng its way across the grain of the
(rood as tf it were cheese.
These batholltes lurk deep in the
jarth, where Ihe temperature Ir thoa-
lands of degrees, und gradually melt
:helr way to the surface above them.
Benerally they issue lu the form of
xemendous domes of hot rock, tower-
ug up to moiiiioilu heights and often
jiving birth to volcanoes. When a
.athollte, as sometimes happens, does
iot reach the surface Its roof open*
:u a network of fissures, lava pours
iut and a whole group of volcanoes
ippears at that point.
Suess has recognized the remains »t
many cooled batholltes on various
parts of the earth's surface, and ha
jays that the consolidated crust of the
Mirth, even at the present day, may
De exposed to these mighty intrusions
from below. Tbe batholltes bring up
witb them many metuls from the Interior of the planet, and rich mlues
tre often opened in tbe dikes that are
:hus formed.
Suess describes the rock about Boat-
ler, Colo., ns nn ancient butbollte.
which covers 5,000 square kilometers
if surface. But there are others still
more prodigious in extent.
Sometimes they have been worn
lown nearly to the general level, but
near Elkborn the old balholite yet
towers up to an elevation of 0.000 feet
above the sea. The diamond dikes of
South Africa have thus been thrust up
from tbe profound depths df the earth,
where there exists a laboratory of na-
mre in which she performs what seem
miracles to the petty inhabitants of
Ihe planet's surface.
The face of the moon shows us most
:learJy what butholiies are capable of.
The vast circular plains ringed wltb
steep mountains, which make its surface so marvelous lo look upon with a
telescope, have, according to this view,
been formed by intrusions of colossal
batholltes, aurl Suess calls them by
the startling name of "smelting furnaces"—furmtces thousands of square
miles in extent—in wbicb the frame
of that little world has been melted
and dissolved like a snow bauk lying
in the path of n How of molten iron.
And if we could remove the sedimentary accumulations of ages from
the face of our world, says this astonishing German savant, we might find
now bidden under our feet a network

Once while traveling General Moltke
entered a small Swiss hotel, and aa tbe
bead waiter saw his gaunt figure stalking In, wrapped ln a wornout, dusty
cloak, carrying ,-in old leather satchel,
he measured his wealth by his looks
and ordered his assistant to show bim
to a small room In the uppermost
story. As be was making himself comfortable in tbe attic another assistant
came, as Is customary there, to ask tha
silent stranger his uauie and rank.
The consequence was that a few minutes later the proprietor, In full dress,
appeared at the door of the attic to Inform his excellency tbat a better room
had Just been vacated.
"Give that to my servant," replied
Moltke. "when he comes with my carriage. This Is good enongb for me."

One   Case   Where   the   Half   Proved
Greater Than the Whole.
Tbere Is no painter wbo lends him
self to "splitting" so much as Botticelli—I. e.. n division of tbe panel into
two parts so as to form separate pic*
tures. fears ago I sold to a Mr. Buttery of Loudon half a Botticelli, wbicb
Is now owned by Herr Kaufmann of
Berlin. I hare myself seen tbe other
half of the picture, as well aa the plo*
lure in Its entire state.
In oue case I can recall the halt
proved greater than tbe whole. A certain Signor Bnrll! bequeathed a valu-
Mble Botticelli to his two grandsons,
who were twins. But, although twins,
these two young men were rather
quarrelsome mid had no taste in com*
num. One proposed to sell tbe picture,
which had been painted for one of tbelr
ancestors. It Is said, by Botticelli himself. Tbe other would not consent
The first then proposed that tbe other
should buy his share and keep the plo
ture himself, ne took me wltb bim,
and I assigned tbe value of the plo
ture nt 5.000 lire, saying I would glva
that for It. The brother declined and
suggested placing tbe picture ln th*
custody of an aunt pending an adjust*
litem of the terms. "Oh, very well,"
cried bis brother, flying into a passion,
"if you won't buy and won't let me
sell there's only one thing to do," and
before any one could Interfere be emptied three chambers of a revolver into
tbe panel, completely destroying one*
baif of tbe composition. Including a St
John and a Joseph. Tbe picture being sent to me to restore, I could do
nothing witb it and strongly advised
separating tbe panel. Shortly after I
did so the owner died, and I disposed
of tbe work for 8,000 lira to Adolph
Kaon. It is now. I believe, in Russia.
