Carlson) appeared in procession, surrounded by  a number of younger warnors, on the march to the waters' edge, where  they held a pow-wow and decided that the ancient mariner had hidl  pretty good inning during his life-time and, instead of being sent to' the  bench to awatt the final game, must now get off the grounds The  guard and escort having thus decided, then sang a funeral hymn, the  last stanza of which sounded something like the following:       ,        . -     ,  "Grubben;NbackLtiufobun Noack.

Told the multitude he had had a  good time, had filled six long spears with notches (each notch a split  cranium), and because there was nc body in the crowd* left worthy of his  fighting powers he would take a trip to Valhalla.  It seems that he, and him alone, had confidence   as to where he was  | going.      However, after throwing   out a   final   challenge to those around  to try a I.ist   round with    him,  the   old   warrior   entered   his war   galley,  which was immediately ciis.t   loose   nnil   shoved off  into the dark waters  j      Electric Storm in Phoenix  The electric  storm, which   visited  Phoenix on Tuesday  night, appears  to have been very general   throughout   the   whole    Boundary   district,  and with   the   exception   of the unavoidable   dislocation   of   telegraph  and telephone communication, no ill  effects   have   been   reported.     As   a  precaution against danger and damage the compressor   at the Granby  mine   was    shut   down    for    about  two  hours, and   for a  few   minutes  the electric  lights in   the town were  extinguished.

Secret of "Scotty's" Wealth  "Death Valley Scotty" told the  grand jury at Los Angelos this  week that A. iM. Johnson, president  of the National Life Insurance company of Chicago, had grubstaked  him for years, and that E. Burt  Gaylord, ;i mining engineer of New  York, put up the $10,000 which  Scotty paid for the special train in  which he made his spectacular trip  across the continent several years  ago.  He further informed the grand  jury that his hole in the ground  down in "Death Valley" is a myth,  which has been used for years to  fill the pockets of the promoters.  Scotty said that the most he ever  had' at one time was $3000, and  that the yellow-complexioned roll he  carried was upholstered with one  dollar notes.  | POINTED PARAGRAPHS  Greenwood Stage Line  Leave PKoenix, upper town, 8.45 a.m. ]  "     ;       "        lower town,   9.00 a.m. [Standard Time '!

In placing  Queen   Victoria's   statue   where   it  can be seen and  admired by all her  citizens,   the government is honoring the  city and paying a tribute to  womanhood.���Victoria Colonist.

Saturday, Junk 29, 1912  Where Are We At?  The following pointed, editorial  appeared recently in the columns of  the Victoria Colonist:  "A conference is to be held in  Quebec shortly, at which a number  of distinguished clericals and public  men of that province will be present,  to discuss the question of education  and the present status of the French  language in Canada. One of those  who is to participate, says the object is   to   find   out  "where   wc are  States,     have     influenced     British  opinion against him.  On the other hand, there are  many Britishers who have not forgiven , Roosevelt for his gratuitous  advice, in hi.s Guildhall speech of  two years ago, on how to run  ligypt. Also his forcing a cam-  paign on his personality. The  Liberal press naturally regards both  the president and the ex-president  with disfavor because both arc politicians.  Some space was devoted in the  Biitish press to the possibility of  La Toilette's being the compromise  selection, and he was especially  favored by the Liberal free traders,  in the hope that if elected he would  be able lo accomplish a material reduction of the present high tariff  wall.  at."    This is .something that a good  many   people,   who   do   not   live   in  Quebec,   would   like   to   know.     It  cannot be settled by a conference of  French-Canadians   however learned  and   able, for   the   question   is   one  upon which the rest of us will claim  a right to say something.    It will be  useful    to    know   just   where   our  fellow   Canadians   in   Quebec  think  they are "at" and where they think  they   ought   to   be.     Correct   diagnosis   is  the   first   step   towards   a  cure, and in  the opinion  of the proposed congress there must be something  the matter,   else   why  a conference?  There is   one   thing  about which  we  would   all like   to   know   something.    Is   Quebec  to   be imperium  in imperio, and ad  imperium, which  may continue to hold the balance of  power in a   great   English-speaking  Dominion?    We can go on shutting  our   eyes   to  this   question,   as   we  have been   doing   for the  last forty-  five years; but it will   not be settled  in that way.      It arose   on the naval  question,   and   it   has not  yet  been  disposed of.     It  has  asserted  itsell  in  Ontario   on   the   question   of bilingual schools,  and   although  temporarily   shelved,   it   is   not  out   of  the way.     Wc   have   heard   it   muttered in   the   prairie   provinces   and  may hear   it  ag-ain,   and   louder be  fore long.      It stares   us   in  the face  on the marriage question.     When a  Canadian recalls such   names as Sir  George Cartier, Sir   Hector Lange-  vin and Sir Wilfrid Lauricr, and the  part   that   those,   who   bore   them,  played in determining the policy of  Canada, he will   not feel   like   comforting  himself with   the   reflection  that Quebec is likely.to become tine  quantite negligible.  "Where are we at?" as asked by  the member of the forthcoming conference, is a question of prime importance, one that is much more  easily put than answered.  e  A Malicious Story Revived  Sundry Liberal newspapers have  again resurrected the old story of  the American nationality of the  Hon. Geo. H. Parley, the acting  premier.  Mr.     Perley's   father    left    New  Hampshire   in   1857  and  settled  in  Ottawa. ���  He  came lo this country  before   Mr.   Perley's   birth and  became a   British   subject   and   for  a  | time was  member of parliament for  the  city   of Ottawa.     He did  not,  however, move his family to Ottawa  at once,   and   the  present minister  was born   in New   Hampshire soon  after his father's removal to Canada,  and was  brought  to   Canada when  an infant.  Under the naturalization act of  1881, however, il was necessary for  him to be naturalized. He took his  papers on December 26, 18S5, and  the papers were filed on December  29. It thus is true that he has been  naturalized, and false that he has  omitted to take this step. What  makes the assertions now being  spread about wear an air of malice  is the fact that the assertion has  been made and disproved years  a#o, as for instance when Mr. Per-  ley contested Russell in 1900.

ALMSTROM  All the Latest Newspapers, Magazines  The Presidential Nomination  The bitter fight between President  Ttift and Colonel   Roosevelt  for the  Republican nomination have been  as closely watched in Great Britain  as in Canada. Under ordinary circumstances British feeling would be  strongly in favor of the present incumbent, but Mr. Taft's advocacy  ol" reciprocity with Canada, his famous "parting of the ways" speech  last fall, immediately prior to our  own momentous elections, and finally bis publication of the Roosevelt-  T.ift   correspondence containing the  emark that reciprocity would make  Canada  an   adjunct   of  the   United  The Coming Competitor  If a Japanese  manufacturer   can  sell artificial flies  for fishing at 45c.  a gross, duty paid, which cannot be  produced   in   the   United  Slates for  less than $3.00  per gross,   says an  article in  Colliers, he is soon going  to command the market in that line  of  product,   unless   the   Americans  raise   the   tariff  against  him.     The  explanation   of the  condition  lies in  the fact that  the Japanese mamifac  turer     pays    his    workmen    fifteen  centsper day,    while  the   American  pays his men $1.50 per day.  Sooner  or later we arc going to feel Japanese competition   struggling with   industries here in Canada.      Some industries which Canada   might support in the  future are  not yet born,  and may never be born   if Japanese  or  other   Oriental   goods   secure   a  foothold first. Facts like these make  the doctrine  of free trade still more  interesting.  0L McElMbY  SOLE AGENT FOR PRINCETON  COAL  Dealer in Lumber, Shingfles, Lath  and Cedar Poles. Still] Lap-gran.

The social given by the men of the  Methodist church on Thursday was extremely well attended, a large number  of the fair sex being present: no doubt  influenced by natural feminine curiosity to observe how the gentlemen behaved and also to see and sample the  good things provided by mere man.  There can be no question  but that the  the other three scalers.  Pioneer ads  gets results.  Word has  been received that the  drilling on   the   B.C.

The musical portion of the entertainment, which was  all provided by the men, was well rendered and duly appreciated. The conclusion of the social was marked by  the singing of the national anthem*  rather a rare occurrence! nowadays in  Phoenix, but what was still more remarkable, was the heartiness with  which the fine old linos were rendered  by-young and old.  Father Bedard's Jubilee  Rev. Father Bedard, who for  many years had charge of the joint  parishes of Phoenix, Greenwood and  Grand Forks, and who was transferred about two years ago to the  coast, celebrated the silver anniversary of his ordination to the priesthood. The following account of the  ceremonies attending the anniver  sary is from a recent issue of the  Vancouver Province:  St. Edmund's church was in gala  array on Monday, June 24th to celebrate the silver jubilee of its pastor  Father  Bedard, O.M.I.    The  celebrations were varied.  From the Catholic standpoint ihe  most important cvenl of the cele  brations was this morning's jubilee  mass of thanksgiving. The church  was crowded, among those present  being Mayor and Mrs. McNeish,  and in addition to the regular con  gregation, there was a large contingent of Indian boys and girls in  the church. The high mass was  sung by Father Bedard, assisted by  Very Rev. J. Welch, provincial of  the Oblale Order. His Grace Most  Rev. Neil McNeil, Archbishop of  Vancouver, occupied the archepis-  copal throne vvilhin the sanctuary,  and in the sanctuary were Father  Peytavin, North Vancouver, and  Father Salles, Mission City, who  served the mass, Father Austin  Bonner, St. Patrick's Church, Vancouver, was assisted at the throne  and Fathers Tavernier, O.M.I., St.  O'Boyle, New Westminster, were  present in the choir.  Turner's Mass of St. Cecilia was  rendered by the choir under the  leadership of Mr. J. Garvie. The  soloist was Mrs. Laughlin and the  offertory piece, "Veni Jesu," was  given as a quartette by Mrs. Laughlin, Miss Cleary and Messrs. Garvie  and Rodgers.  After  the  first  Gospel  his  grace  preached.     In the course of his sermon   his   grace   said   human virtue  does not   make  a   Christian.     It is  the sanctifying grace   which  comes  from    the   blood    of   Jesus   Christ  which mingles with and purifies  his  life which makes the   Christian  and  the saint.     This  idea, he  said, was  to be preserved in the world by the  outward symbols of1 the church, and  no religion could be a religion without some public   ceremonies.     The  outward   form   conveys  the inward  grace.  Archbishop   McNeil   said   British  Columbia had been blessed by many  good priests   during   the   past sixty  year.s and it was a genuine satisfaction to him that one of these priests  is today celebrating his jubilee.    He  had felt since he came to the diocese  that he had in Father Bedard a willing co-operator   in   religious  work.  In all priestly activities  Father Bedard had   a long record, and  in his  (the   speaker's)   name,   and   in   the  name of the   congregation   he   congratulated their pastor.     It was his  earnest hope that he   would   live to  complete his golden jubilee.  At the close of the high mass a  luncheon was given to the archbishop, priests, choir and committee.  In the evening a celebration took  place in the Horticultural Hal), when  Father Bedard was made the recipient of a presentation on behalf of  the congregation.  The   school   children   of St.   Edmund's school presented Father Bedard with a touching little   address.  The   address,   which   was   read   by  little Dora McHugh, concluded with  the hope   that "When  your golden  jubilee comes, may   we   express   to  you the same good wishes, and may  we, by then, have proved  ourselves  your worthy and grateful children."  The Indian boarders at St. Paul's  School   the   previous   night   invited  Father   Bedard   to   visit   them   and  sang to  him   a  specially composed  "jubilee   greeting."      Both    sisters  and pupils gave the popular priest a  great reception  which   appeared   to  affect its recipient very noticably.  JTO  JSpfe"'1!
