It is a mistake,  a hold-over of tniquitous economic  ignorance and altogether a disgrace  to civilization. \r  A policeman ought to be strong,  lively, courageous, adept at jiu-  jitsu and able to whip the obstreperous '-bad man." He should  also carry a revolver, know how to  Bhoots- straight, and, when the  time comes, shoot to kill.;-But  club���������no. ;'  The very possession of tbe club  tends to brutalize the officer.  Human nature is human nature.  There is something in our blood  that makes ns enjoy pummelling  one who resists us. The teamster  likes -to kick his horse when no  one is watching. The mean parent  and the old-fashioned teacher take  pleasure in slapping the llttle.boy.  That 1b, of course, some do. Policemen are human beings. To put a  club into their hands, when behind them is the whole authority  of law, and when the offender is  doubly afraid to resist, Ib too much  temptation. \  The olub instils a wrong notion  into the policeman's head���������namely,  that it is bis business to punish.  That-������ not- biB business:at all.  His business* is to bring men before  the court of justice- it is for. the  court to punish. J1  It 1b a policeman's duty to-preserve order. 'For this a club is  unnecessary. Clubbing in the  streets by bluecoata is of a piece  with flogging in the,cshool������#m by  a strong armed teacher. %: Some  countries have abolished the latter;  we ought to abolish the former  along with it.  A policeman who needs a club  in order to enforce his commands  ought to resign and go punching  steers.  The sight of clubs on policemen  tends to make the criminal class  still more bitter, cruel and poisonous of heart than it ia by nature.  The club meanB brutality and  every display of brutality goes to  increase brutality. Lynching in  creates the class of crimes it is  supposed -to decrease; hanging pro  motes murder; penitentiaries ;pro,  mote forgery, burglary and theft  Even so the club promotes vicious  violence. ������������������  We can conceive of cases where  ���������* -'-ffi'a   Snappy Plays  In talking about play writing  aniel Frohman says:  To succeed a play must have  snap.

Asked to name the industries of  British Columbia, very few would  think of including hop-growing  Yet in two ..districts, ol the lower  mainland a large amount of money  is invested in - hop farms. It iB  not a speculative industry, and as  the market is sure and the monetary returns encouraging, it is not  improbable that in time larger areas both on tbe mainland and  Vancouver Island will be devoted  to this purpose.  The'growing of hops is the feature in the Agassiz district. Agassiz is seventy miles east - of Van-  oouver-on the main line of the C.P.  B. The Fraser Kiver runs close  to the -base of the mountains at  that'point and towering like a  huge sentinel overlooking the dis  trict is Mount ' Cheam. To the  North too, are mountains, Agassiz  being located on the" railway just  after it emerges from the Fraser  River canyon. It;"is a pretty  for the eye of the''traveller to rest  on after a journey through big hills  and its productive twelve thousand  acreBmake an entrancing scene.  The place iB name| after one of  the early settlers' of the section,  who was wise in his' choice of good  land. When the-'Dominion Government sought;a Bite .for an ex-  perimental   farm   on  the lower  mainland   of   British   Columbia,  '***?���������' -   ������������������'   ���������  Agassiz was seletrod and an excellent institution?'fy maintained at  *���������������������������<���������;��������� v.-  that point.  "Hop-growing is hardly to be engaged in by- the individual, for a  a large investment is required and,  moreover, the expenses of harvesting are large. .^British Columbia, which cultivates 300 acres at  Agassi*, (is ihe local name under  which the E.

In addition to this  acreage, a similar area is devoted  to hops by the same concern in the  Chilliwack district. The capital  invested is $250,000 or approximately half a million dollars in the  two places.  The land is well cultivated and  fertilized,   the enriching material  being brought by the carload from  Vancouver.     That   taking    good  care of the  land   is profitable is  shown by the fine large hops which  grow  in   great   abundance.    The  hop being a perennial plant, planting is not necessary every year, although plants die and hew oneB  have to be reset.    When they start  to shoot upward in the spring of  the year, what might be called the  upper works have been   prepared.  Poles are Bet upright at distances  of thirty six   feet   one   way  and  twenty feet the other, and on these  heavy wire is Btretched.   Dropping  from tbe wire to   the  plant are  strings,   and   up these the vines  grow.   The plants are at intervals  of four feet.. On the hop ranch at  Agassiz are 12,000, each containing  an average of 60 feet of lumber, If  the wire used iB reduced to No. 14  telephone size, the poles and wire  used   would   make  five  hundred  miles of telephone line of six wires,  with poles thirty-five to the mile.  The hop field in summer, wh6n  the extensive wire trelis, twenty  feet above the ground, is covered  with a growth of giant green, is  attractive. The vines are of substantial thickness, the leaves and  hops being clustered toward the  top. The ground area underneath  is quite clear, {while overhead is  the extended canopy of green. ,  Hops are harvested about the  middle of September, and this year  about 800 pickers were amployed.  The labor for thiB purpose in this  country comprises Indians, HiuduB,  Chinese, Japs and whites, certainly  a varied crew. They are paid SI a  box, the box being a huge recep-  tackle, but not so large but:that a  fair wage can be made. ^Injaddi*  tion to this, a bonus of nve'eenta or  a loaf of bread. During the picking season tbe company has several  ticket agents at work buying the  boxes and distributing the bonus  bread tickets. Sixteen thousand  odd boxes are harvested, 'eight  boxes being reckoned to a bale, and  all of $22,000 is required to pay  the expenses  of  the  harvesting,  which lasts about a month.  This year about 2r00Q baleB will  be marketed, these weighing between 190 and 200 pounds each.  The value of the. crop is thirty cents  a pound, so that about $115,000  is the gross amount received this  year for the product of ��������� 300 acres.  The hops grown in British Columbia are considered the best quality  grown anywhere in' the world and  consequently command the best  prices.���������Telephone Talk.

On Monday night a lecture on  "Labor Problems" was delivered  in the Auditorium by J. W. Bennett, of Fernie, who is visiting the  different mining camps in both  East and West Kootenay under  the auspices of the Western Federation of Miners.   " ���������*���������������������������   ���������  The chair was occupied by Wm.  Lakeland who was disappointed in  not seeing a larger crowd only put-  it down to the fact that the workmen were not ��������� interested in their  own affairs, s but gave credit to  those-who had,come especially thn  ladies Who undoubtedly would be  looking for suffrage. He then  called upon the International organizer, Mike Gibich, who made" a  short speech when introducing the  speaker of the evening. ,  Mr. Bennett called* attention to  the prevalence of labor disputes iu  every part ofthe world and urged  upon the audience the importance  of studying for themselves the  cause, not merely to accept what  somebody else said but to do thoir  own thinking and draw their own  conclusions. Selfishness actuated  every individual but added "let us  bear in mind what is meant by this  word" continuing he said ''There  is the selfishness of the narrow type  which looks only to me and mine  and today in 'contradistinction of  the wide exemplification which  stands for the benefit of the collect-  ory and thereby accrues to the individual as a part of the whole than  if they stood as an individual unit"  He cited several instances of the  broader interpretation.of the word  that were simple and apt.  Toleration likewise was counselled. We are constantly changing  and ought not to bo hasty in abusing another because ho does not  see eye to eye with us ou any  given subject.        ���������' '  The whole tenor of tho speaker's  remarks was an exhortation to accept nothing nor reject nothing but  to analyse and dissect to the end  that the opinions they voiced were  their owniand not merely be the  echo of what somebody else had  advanced. -       ,  Although deploring .strikes he  said that so long as existing conditions   continued   there  would  be  H  ????  inmmimmmmmmmmmmmmfnmtinmnmK  BUSTS        SMITHS SMITH'S        SMITH'S g  ->������-. ��������� ��������� __ ��������� ��������� - ���������������������������  .,  ��������� ��������� -������^  ������= Carpenter's Tools, Mechanical Tools, Cross Cut   Saws, |������S  ������~ Broad, Single and Double Bitted Axes, :~3  1 Single and Double Strength Window Glass 1  :rz.

"Come   Love,   Go  Love,"  "The  Foolish    .Swallow,"     "A   'Lover  True,"     "Lovo   and   War" ' and  "Weak  as a Woman."

Professor  Benjamin   Moore,   of  Liverpool,  said that he considered crime was  a good thing because it brings us  to understand social problems.    In  his opinion,   perfect laws   would  show that we are no' longer progressive.    . Yet  another speaker,  Dr.  Bishop, said that crime was  necessary and that it could not be  avoided.     What should be done  was not to eradicate it but to limit  its success.   He further believed  that the administration of criminal  law should not be the exclusive  privilege of lawyers unless   they  are experts in political   economy  and psychology.  Captain St. John,  the honorary secretary of the Penal  Beform League, was very emphatic  in his strictures.    He said   that  everybody   knew   that   the  law  courts were making criminals every  day, so that it was not necessary  to protect themselves, not only for  criminals but also for people who  deal with'criminals.     The  concensus of opinion of most of the  speakers was that the treatment of  criminals was not what it should  be.    Prince Kropotkin,  the Russian agitator, who was among the  speakers    said:     "Twenty-four  honrs of bread and water and a  planed bed might be a deterrant to  people accustomed to good food,  but it is no[deterrent to those who  sleep   under   bridges  or by   the  shores of the Thames.   Prisons are  the universities of crime and we  must do something to change our  system."���������Enderby Press.

All of the nine who made the  trip, eaid Mr. Lawson, have returned in good health and with  enough ivory, skins, oil, etc., to  pay ub well for our trip.

The  schooner was left in the harbor all  winter, while we went ashore and  lived there all winter until we left  on August 25 of this year.
