NELSON, B. 0., SATURDAY, JULY 22,1305.  *  Z^RlA. &l  C  T^i  UMBEB 2  FRENCH-  CANADIAN FLAG  A TERRIBLE  PREDICAMENT  The   New Standard Coming  Into General Use.  French Canada has virtually adopted  a new flag. It haa already used four  or five other flags differing from the  Canadian flat; proper, but none of them  quite expressed the real national aims  nnd desires of the French Canadians.  Even the new standard is not yet assured of universal adoption, though it  is being very largely employed by  groups of French Canadians throughout the whole of Canada and also for  church and other decoration in certain  French Canadian centres in the New  England States.  Suggested in several quarters more  than a yearagb, it has suddenly sprung  into general use during the various  celebrations of the national festival of  St. Jean Baptiste, which have been  ; held recently in the principal French  Canadian centres of population.  The ground of tbe new flag Is sky  blue, and it is divided into four parts  by a large white cross, lhe anus of  which run directly up and down and  (straight across the bunting. In each  corner of thc flag Is placed a white  ��pear head or fleur de lys, while standing out iu the color of lire, at the intersection of the arms of the cross is a  representation of the Sacred Heart, .-���  Visitors have- always been .struck  ���with the number of French  tricolors  .decorating the streets ai'd public buildings of Montreal, Ottawa, Quebec and  other parts of French Canada.     This  year the French colors .are still  occasionally in  evidence but are  being  ;". rapidly displaced by tbe new French  -Canadian llag above described.  Like all Gallic peoples, tha French  Canadians attach a great deal of sentimental interest to the'symbolism of  Hugs, aud there is consequently considerable significance in the present  change*of standards. To comprehend  this significance it .is .necessary to  make a ,brjef retrospect of different  French Canadian colors since the con-  Ajuest of tlie country by Gen.'Wolfe.  When  Gen.  Montcalm's successor,  De Levis, capitulated   to tlie British  troops in   Canada  U  is said  that he'  ^.tornedalljus^ttags^ratliei^  them to fall into- the enemy's hands.  For.many years after the conquest the  French Canadians do not seem to have  seen auy necessity fur the use of a dis-  tistiuctively French Canadian flag.  When the rebellion of 1837-38 broke  out several flags were used bearing incendiary legends of various kinds, and  there was a standard showing two  eagles oh a white ground, an American aud a Canadian eagle holding a  branch of maple. While this flag disappeared with thc ending of the rebellion, the revolutionary French tricolor,  sanctioned by the St. Jean Baptiste  or national society of the French Canadians, had taken its place.  The object of its use was to testify to  tlie fact thut thc French Canadians  Were fully determined to maintain  their own French nationwlity in the  Now World, distinct from their English speaking fellow subjects.  After the Crimean War and the fall  o�� Sebastapol, in which the armies of  JFrancfr and England were allied  against the Russians, the tricolor of  jed, white and blae was much employed in decorations, together with  the Union Jack, by Englishmen, both'  iu England and and in Canada. It  was not pleasing to the French Canadians to see that what they had been  accustomed to consider as their own  special flag in Canada and as marking  their distinctive nationality in the New  World was also used by their English  speakiug fellow citizens. So 'another  change was made iu the flag, and in  order to localize the Canadian iutcicnt  jn   the French  colors the maple leaf  and tlie beaver  were added to the tricolor.  The English element of the Domiu- j  ion soon dropped the use of the tricolor .   altogether, but appropriated the beaver ��� �� j   jJave   Children,   and   My  Mid the maple leaf from time to time ,    -  .....   ,  .

The Sherman'Piatt people have  given two plays this week, and while  the* audiences |��re   not   as  large as have therefore nol-'deemed the question  in hand cannot be accused of showing  lack of interest, the difficulty was  simply that the best methods were not  employed to bring Nelson before the  outside world as a tourist resort.

They have also shown their  sincerity by advising all their friends to  visit Nelson. Iherefore, without much  effort on our part we have now established what niight be termed the nucleus of a tourist trade, which will  grow of its own accord.

Land Commissioner Dennis1  address before the Board of Trade last  Thursdayis well worthy the consider-  rtion of every citizen of Nelson. Mr.  Dennis appeared to know what would  be required of bim, and was therefore  ready,-to deal with every question  brought up. Of course, tbe most im-  portanAinatter was tbe one dealing  wltli'ltlie system of disposing of the C.  P. II.-lands. That there have been  complaints that^the great railway corporation was retarding rather than advancing settlement through its method  of disposing of its lands is beyond dispute, but that these complaiuts were  well grounded is open to question.  Mr. Dennis explained many matters in'  this connection that were hot very well  understood, and it is safe, to -say that  ���those, who listened to him were satisfied that the C. P. Broffici'ltrwere;not  as derelict in this respect as has been  betn been claimed iii some quarters.  On the contrary they seem desirous qf  encouraging settlement, aud are already making preparation with that  end in view. Indeed, Mr. Dennis announced that it was'the .intention of  his department to survey and plot the  lauds suitable for settlement lu Southern British Columbia so that intending  settlers could go to them and see what  they were like. The terms on which  C. P. B. .lands, may be purchased  were shown to be reasonable. Mr.  Dennis also gave his assurance that he  would .do everything lu_ his power to  After suspending S. E. Coulter half  a dozen times as driver of tlie fire department and without advanciugany  reason therefor. Mayor Houston  now  brings forward a charge of intoxication  while on duty agaiqst Coulter.   When  in caucus with the men elected on hi"*  ticket Mayor Houston gave it as hU  reason for the discbarge of Coulter that;  no one who had voted against him iu  the municipal election would be drawing pay from the city when his term   ,  of office expired.     He had nothing tt>  say regarding Coulter's habits, and for  the very good reason that the latter i<  a temperate man, and his associates at  the fire hall bear testimony to tbis fact:  If Mayor Houston had any suspicion'  at that time that Coulter was a drinking man why did he not mention it to  his friends?    Why has he refused to  advance a reasonable cause for tbe discharge of Coulter to the council ? Why',  after four or five months, does he come  forward with a charge tbat so far ai  careful Investigation reveals is ab*o<  lately without  foundation?    Does HB  imagine that anyone will be deceived  as to his conduct at the present time?  Even Mayor Houston's most devoted  followers are disgusted with the lates't  turn In the Coulter case, many of theiii  using the strongest language to express  condemnation of the mayor's course.  If Coulter reported for duty in au in-  toxleated condition lit* should lie discharged.   No man who serves the public, whether as. a driver in the fire department or as a member of the Legte-  lature, should occupy his position .or  office one day after he was known  to  have been under the influence of liqdor  while 011 duty ; but the preponderance  of evidence goes to show that Couftei  was  an exceptionally sober, care foi,  industrious servant oftbepeople.

Should it transpire that John Hays  Hammond, the celebrated mining engineer, has negotiated the- purchase of  the plant of tbe Consolidated Cariboo  Hydraulic Mining Company, at Bullion, Cariboo district, one may hope  for big things in that quarter in tho  near future. It would not be at all  strange if Cariboo would again command attention ou account of its gold  output. It has long beeu contended  by expert mining men tliat Cariboo  has been only been skimmed over, and  that there is auy amount of gold in  that district yet.  D. McNicholl, vice-president of the  C.

This growth i.s particularly gratifying  to the C. P. R. officials, inasmuch as it  gives the company an opportunity of  securing return freight. In the past  the railway has been confined tocarry-  i ng freight to the west, as British Columbia exported little or nothing to the  east. Now, tlie fruit exports supply  the return freights, which will be not  only a source of wealth to the Province,  b ut also to the railway company that  has done so much for British Columbia.
