The weather man kept a restraining hand on   the  rain  clouds on
Dominion Day to enable  the United Farmers of the Greenwood riding and their friends to enjoy tbe
celebration   at   Ingram     Bridge.
Though   rain threatened   nothing
came of it and' there were many
from all parts present to participate
in   the days' events.     Shrieking
motors, conveyances and buggies of
all kinds kept coming from every
quarter and long before noon there
was a great assemblage.     Ingram
Bridge is an ideal site for holding
a celebration, it being centrally located and the grounds  large  and
good.   Those in charge had gone
to a great deal of trouble to make
everything go without a hitch and
the success of the day is largely
due to their efforts.   The committee in charge were: H. Martin, E.
Fen wick   Wilson,   R.    Bruce,  J.
Richter, H. Dumont, C. Charlton,
H.   Pittendrigh,   E. Richter,    F.
Bubar and F. Madge.
The programme of events was a
varied one and very interesting especially the baseball. Three teams
competed viz;���Rock Creek, Midway and Greenwood. Greenwood
first of all played Rock Creek beating that team by a score of 20-9,
but great excitement and enthusiasm prevailed when Midway and j
Greenwood occupied the diamond
and for the first time in two years
Midway suffered defeat "at the
hands ot the Greenwood nine.,
by a score of 7 to 6. Midway
held the lead until

John Merwin Mott an old and
respected   citizen   of   Greenwood-
died   at  the   local    hospital   on
Thursday last at the advanced age
of 81 years.   The late Mr.   Mott
was born in New York city on
July. 12bh,  1840,  where he lived
until 1861,  when he enlisted .in
17th Regiment, Illinois Jnfantry,
remaining   in the  Union   Army
throughout the war.   After his discharge from the army in 18C5 ho
came wesc where he had been engaged in prospecting and ranching.  In
1894 he came to.Midway from the
Fraser valley via Hope trail and
in 1900 moved to Greenwood where
he  has   lived   ever  since.     The
deceased helped to clear the town
lots when Greenwood  was in the
making  and   for    11   years  was-
watchman on C.P.R.  bridges near
Greenwood.    He leaves no known
The funeral took place on Saturday,  W.   L.~ Clark,  officiating,
The  pall   bearers   were:   J.   H.
Goodeve, N". Morrison, John Long-
ton, W. Bryant, T.   Branagan and
John Ryan.    In  accordance with
his last wish he was buried in the
Greenwood cemetery.     The Can-'
adian and  American   flags   were
placed on his   casket  and   three
volleys were fired over the grave.
Thus another   pioneer has   gone
to his reward. '

public has known there arc penalties
for such offences, but it has also been
apparently correctly, under thc impression that thcy have never been inflicted.     Of course, it is hard to con.

impossible. It is to bc hoped that

others where deserved, as it is more

Leader     of    Paris    Apache     Gang
Recognized By Inspector.
The last act of an amazizng human
drama was played when a little man
sitting on thc terrace of Montmartrc
cafe suddenly jumped up, clapped his
hand on thc shoulder of a man in
the passing crowd, produced a revolver, and said, "You are Jules.
Carcl. I am Inspector Balegucric.
You had better come quietly."
Twenty years ago Carcl was a
member of one of thc worst Apache
gangs in' Paris. His career as* a
criminal ended- on thc day "of his arrest. He was sentenced to ten years'
hard labor in a French penal settlement' and,, .perpetual banishment.
Twice Carcl tried, to escape, aided, by
all the'accessories one finds in the
most thrilling-motion pictures, steel
bars bitten through with drills;,, and
then wanderings through virgin forest land,, tracked by natives who fired
with poisoned arrows.        /   ��� "
.Carcl made' a-"third/ attempt with,
seven companions, and after -numerous hairbreadth escapes-: arrived ' iii
France alone." He determined to reform "and-.lead" an honest life. 7 Hc.

Treaty With Japan
London.���The Anglo-Japanese
treaty, Reuter's N,ews Agency

Dealing with armaments, Premier
Meighen drew -a. somber picture of
the possible effects of thek race in
armaments between thc British Empire and the United States. The
great task before the nations was
restoration of /the . world's' economic
stability, shattered by -war; the pa3r-
ment of debts and the removal "from
the  shoulders  of  the peoples  of  thc
liance resolved itself into a full:dress f vrcs<<nl  terrible  burden   of  expendi

Arthur Meighen, who hajj circulated
his case iu a confidential document
and who intfcndcd to speak but briefly,
addressed the conference for an hour.
Premiers Smuts, of South .Africa;
Hughes, of Australia; and Masscy,
of New Zealand; following with
speeches of .c*qual length.
Premier Meighen, it is understood,
urged against thc renewal of the
treaty,'either in the present form or
with modifications. He pointed out
the Canadian objections tp it which
were! largcty in line with his argils
nicnts alrcad3r indicated in these, dispatches, but rested ,the-greater part"
)f his case upon .tlie claim that thc
jld policy of alliances is out of tunc
with thc times; that alliances as a
means of maintaining peace ��� havc
proved futile in  thc past    and    that
hires and taxation. -To bring,,this
about it was essential that there bc
limitation of armaments, something
.which hc believed could bc achieved
by a comprehensive conference of
the Pacific powers. It was not, he
declared, a question of deserting
Japan; it was! merely a question of
maintaining thc friendship for Japan
but. in such a way as not to impair
our good relations with other nations.

agreement will be the opening of

fields. Under the settlement
these will now v be exploited-for
the benefit of both parties and it
is confidently anticipated that
whole-hearted co-operation between owners and men will result in such working economies
that cheap coal will soon be available for the rehabilitation of industry generally.
Meighen, strong^*- supported the alliance. Hc supported it on the
grounds that it.had worked well, that
it afforded thc best means of protection for ^Australia, and that it
'provided a restraining hand upon
Japan which .was the. best guarantee
of peace. 'Do not let us sacrifice
the substance for the shadow," was
the burden of-his argument.

Good Crops Generally
Intense Heat Has Forcing Effect On
Crops In Some Districts.
Winnipeg.���The very intense heat
which has prevailed over thc three
prairie provinces m thc past week has
had a very forcing effect on the crops
in thc district where moisture has
been abundant and, reports are being
received from many localities to the
effect that the wheat is already coming into head, according to thc weck-
ly crop report of thc < Grain Trade
'"These high temperatures," says
the report, "havc had a most disastrous effect on these sections of thc
country where moisture is lacking,
and some very serious reports, arc
coming in  from
one o���f thc best long distance runners " in thc northwest. Poor
Johnny Beads, like so many natives,
lie did not stand civilization and .went
to his long homc a 3'car or so ago.
I had becn a year in thc Fort Garry
"ale shop-and haled the confinement,
aud had made application on several
occasions to~bc sent'inland (as all the
area outside the Red River settlement was called in those .days), but
the matter dragged, and at las', on
threatening to resign, I had my way,
So the long-looked for lime had come
at la-'t, and I was really off for the
unknown interior next da>\ [ slept
mighty little that night, having
waking, dreams of great prairie
stretches covered with buffalo, high
mountains and huge forests, with
'akes as big as inland seas, and above
all, thousands of really wild Indians.
It seemed too good to be tnue. Thc
morning" came at last and what with
dclaj-s in the office, closing up important despatches, it was after an early
lunch before wc left. 1 paid hurried
good-bye's to all my friends, and received a hearty hand clasp from Chief
Factor John H. .McTavish. 'He was
at that time thc uncrowned king of
Fort Garry and was one of the best
chiefs I ever had. His last words
to mc were: "If 3-011 don't like it in
thc north there is always a place for
3-011 here."
Johnny called "Marehe!" and away
we went. His dogs wcrc a fearsome
sight and very savage. They were
called Brand3-, Grog, Rum and Whiskey. Thcy were all from ihe plains,
were used to travois, and were as big
as large timber wolves, with split
cars,'and were"grey and white in
color. -Both 1113- 3-oung dogs and myself trcatcdlhcm with thc utmost respect���at a distance���and thc3" evidently had a contempt for us as green
horns. He was loaded entirely with
mail matter and, of course, dog food
a-nd provisions on top of this. - His

was to take them lo Fort Carlton ou
si/ed rail off it, crept "up io thc rear
of the train, balanced the rail on end
carefully, then sighting between old
Brandy's.car, let it fall. My aim was
true, and it bowled him over. With
dreadful howls he sprang to hi:, fcct
and started after my companion at a
gallop, I just managing to throw myself in thc cariolc. Catching up with
Johnny at last, I noted he was shaking with merriment, land on topping
for a smoke, hc said: "Bub-bub-boy,
what did you do to Bub-bub-Brandy?"
Wc had a great laugh over- it, hut in
future I kept un- own dogs.
We Meet at Bourgeois.-
Wc reached Portage about nine
that night, and Mr. Jas. Hargrave
made us very welcome as is usual
amongst Hudson's Bay men. Next
day wc camped at White Mud River,
where was one Jimmy Whitcway"
postmaster, aud here we met -my new
chief, Factor Archie'McDonald, king
of thc Swan River district.     He was
no  means  prejudiced in  favor of
Canadians as by far the majority of
thc officers and men of the H. B. Co.
at that time wcrc Scotch, and yery
clannish at that. Johnny JBeads
started early next morning for his
long trip across the plains and I accompanied Mr. McDonald and party
011 his inspecting trip. Up to this
time I had an easy time with my light
cariolc, but conditions were changed
and my dogs were loaded to capacity,
so it was me for thc road. Jeune-,
Homme, a young French half-breed,
who was guide, fortunately took a
fancy to thc young tender foot, and
at once christened me Ogemases,
meaning little clerk. He had overheard the bcuiBcO.s say, "Well, we
will sec what kind of stuff this little
Canuck is made of and he can head
-the party-tomorrow."	
It was a good thing for me the day
was a short one, only some thirty
miles, as I was running thc whole distance. If you want to know what
it was like, just watch a dog trotting
beside a rig-and 3*011 follow him aud
keep that up for thirty miles. Luckily
for me thc track was hard and snow-
shoes not needed. Oh, boj-, but I
was tired that night and my legs
cramped with thc unusual exertion,

I fell a&lcep thc call was made to get
