are putting up a 100-ton concentrator at Chewelah, Wash., and
they are iri the hope of erecting a
similar one here to treat Spotted
Horse and custom ores.

Providence mine, which has produced some of. the richest ore in'
the province. He has had faith

to address the meeting and though
he admitted he was past the 70th

measure for the revaluation of
soldiers' lands, showing how the
Liberals in -the House after the
resignation of the MacK. K. government, had tried to get this bill
enacted, so that no time would be
lost-in extending its relieving provisions to the soldiers who bought

Talks of Friendship.1!  With Sir
Wilfrid Laurier
The Right Honorable Sir Gilbert
Parker, who at present is making ono
of his frequent visits to his native
land, made' his only public appearance
on this trip at Muskoka Assembly, the
Canadian Chautauqua, recently. A
largo audience gathered from various
points on the lakes and listened to a
delightful series of personal reminiscences whicli he gathered under the
title, "Forty-one Years After."
Ills address dealt largely with public men with whom he had beeu
brought into contact. Speaking or Sir
Wilfrid Laurier and the French-Canadian, he said:
"It is a good thing to have long
enough to prove that apart from
literature, ono loves one's country Ms
a patriot, and^has no fear. I remember a speech I delivered in Toronto
well over twenty years ago at my own
university. I had just come back
from Quebec and I said then, what I
repeat' now, that, whilo tho French-
Canadian did not share sympathetically in our imperial commitments and
responsibilities, he was loyal to the
soil "as*any U. E. Loyalist in this TJ. E.
Loyalist district. It must not be forgotten that ' twice since 1759 the
French-Canadian has saved Canada
for the British flag. It must not be
forgotten that'the second most popular prime minister Canada ever had,
Sir Wilfrid Laurier, was a French-
Canadian. Had I lived in Canada I
should have been opposed to Sir Wilfrid Laurier politically, but we were
close and intimate friends, stayed with
him in his house six times, I crossed
the continent with him once. And
what.was the basis of our friendshipV
He believed that I put the French-
Canadian in his. true light before the
world. I attacked him in 1911 in the
British House of Commons, over the
reciprocity proposal witli the United
States. I said I believed he would
be driven from power, and that he
would never receive the prime minisr
��� tershlp again. I said to, myself:
"That ends ��� me with' Laurier." It
didn't. When he -heard I was coming
to Canada again, he cabled me and
asked me to stay with him, which., t

Canadian Pacific Express Company
Dominion Express Company Now No
Longer Known By That Name
After forty-four years of operation
during which it has grown up with
the country and contributed in no
email way to Canadian development,
the Dominion Express Company will
no longer be known by that name.
After September first that great transportation agency, will be known as the
Canadian Pacific Express Company.
In all parts of Canada and thc United
States and throughout the civilized
world signs on the windows of the
many hundreds of branch offices will
be changed, and thus will bo forged a
still closer link with tho great parent company whose railroad, steamships and hotels arc known around tho
To mark the change of name tho
company has issued an attractive
little booklet giving a short history
of its career and a synopsis of its,present widespread activities. The Dominion Express Company was Incorporated in 1873, but it fwas in 18S2
lhat Mr. Van Home, then president
of the C.P.R., took it over as an operating part of the Canadian Pacific
Railway. II. O. A. Kirkpatrick, later
Sir George Kirkpatrick, Lt.-Gov. of
Ontario, was its president, and Mr.
W. S. Stout, a young but thoroughly
experienced express man became its
superintendent. Mr. Stout is today
president and has i'or many years
guided iis fortunes in that' capacity.
For some years he and his assistants had a hard and uphill fight:-They
not. only moved traffic, but helped
create it by finding Canadian and. foreign markets for Canadian products,
and by scientific rate making encouraging the farmer, fruit grower and
others-whose markets were far away.
The growth of tho company over
these many years is an interesting
slory and It is an Important chapter
in the commercial history of this
country and its present posilion whero
it is daily entrusted with hundreds of
millions of dollars in goods and treasure by the public, business institutions and the government Is a matter
for justifiable pride. The booklet Js
handsomely illustrated and is being
widely distributed wherever the company operates.

Montreal.���"The''construction of an
all-Canadian-route to a Canadian all
year port was Just as imperative to
the rest,of Canada as to the Maritime
Provinces," Sir ' Henry Thornton,
president, of the Canadian National
Hallways, told the royal commission
investigating the position of those
provinces in the Canadian Confederation liere.
"I think that Indisputable," the
president, told Sir Andrew Rao Duncan at'another point when the commission chairman told him the Marl-
times made the point that they
should not bo called upon to- bear the
entire burden" or the route. It was
just a matter of deciding how the burden should be borne, said Sir Henry.
Sir Henry said he realized there
was dissatisfaction and even discontent in the Maritimes, and he had
devoted much anxious thought to Uie
"if we admit, and *I- have felt it
for a long .time, that it is in. the interests of the Maritimes and tho Dominion as a,whole, that something
must be done, and done speedily,.to
assist llie Maritimes to share in tlio
growing prosperity ofthe Dominion,
then the problem Is to' find tlie
means," the president, pursued.
Sir_ Henry suggested two allerna-'
-fives for meeting Maritime problems,
10 both of whicli he. felt were open to
objections. The first Vas reduced
rates, and he explained how this
would affect the rate structure of the
entire country and probably of the
whole North American continent
The other alternative was for thc
government to 'grant a subsidy, but
if the principles of a free lunch counter were established,everyone would
want to come to il. One suggeslion
whicli had some advantages and no
disadvantages, he said, was that
there should be established between

Pure beer
WHEN pure beer, as is the case of British
Columbia, is available to the people, the
drinking of liquors of high alcoholic,, content is
lessened and true temperance is promoted. The
legal, abpye-board and Government controlled sale
of beer in British-Columbia, in licensed premises
by the glass and in Government stores by. the
bottle, has removed this Province from among the
communities in which alcoholism is a factor of
"impoftMce. ~~ .   i.^~~]
The attempt at total prohibition made in the
United States early showed its complete bankruptcy from a moral point of view and its utter
failure as regards enforcement. Now its ill consequences from a social standpoint are becoming
evident.    _ "    . ���  . ;i)
To mention only one result, among seven million
jpeople insured by the Metropolitan Life of New
York the death rate from acute alcoholism has
increased -600 per cent, since the enforcement of
prohibition was attempted. Which means that-as-
pure''beer was taken from the people an illicit
trade in concentrated and easily handled liquor of
high alcoholic content, and mostly poisonous,
sprang up ^nd drunkenness increased.
Recent deaths from poison alcohol, made from
motor radiator spirit, in Ontario and New York
afford an example of the harm-of preventing the
use of light beverages such as pure beer. This
flood of death-dealing poison, naturally, did not
affect Quebec, where pure'beer is to be had by
the people in the most free and open manner.:,
The people of British Columbia ��are protected
against the danger that comes from making
distilled liquors a beverage���for which they were
never intended���and against the poison brews that
flood the United States, for British Columbia is
provided with pure beer by the five, modern plants
of the Amalgamated Breweries, the salecof which
is supervised and controlled by. the government
Pure beer is a healthful and invigorating beverage of 'a
definite food value, with an alcoholic strength of V/i per cent.;
as required by law in British Columbia, only, sufficient to
stimulate the digestive system in the most favorable, degree.
Its consumption, inasmuch as it displaces the drinking of strong
distilled liquors, is a GUARANTEE OF TEMPERANCE.
The members of the Amalgamated Brewery are: Vancouver
Breweries Ltd., Rainier Brewing Co. of Canada Ltd.,
Westminster Brewery Ltd., Silver Spring Brewery Ltd.,
and the Victoria Phoenix Brewing Co. Ltd., where the beer
supplied to the people of British Columbia is made.
