BOOKSTORE,  Cai-oakv. aliierta.       .*  ___���������ft_Ef 'liDT-l  "IIAVFj  BEEN BLOCKED-OUT  THE  "ORPHAN BOY SWINDLE"  The Rossland Miner is blaming the  Revelstoke public anil press for trying  to hush up what it calls tho  "Orphan  Hoy Swindle."   This is rather hedging  the question.     The   Herald   at the  time gave a full account of F. C. Whitney's   swindling operations  with  the  Orphan Boy stock, wliich as far as this  paper knows   no   more   affected   the  bona fides of the company itself than  the fact that a  cashier  had   skippeel  out with $50,000 would injure the standing of the Rank of Montre.il.   Nohody  here, it is needless to remark, bought  any stock from  Whitney,  so  that  it  was not till'quite  recently  that the  Herald discovered in the columns of  the" Miner itself that the company was  repudiating the shares, which he sulci.  Today reveals a fresh development  in the situation.    It" appears that J. W.  H������~kins, president and manager of the  company, has enteied suit against the  company for the   sum   of  $3,249." due  him  for  wages, expenses and money  advanced, lhat the .other directors of  the?, company did not think   it   worth  while to put in an npeai-ance, that in  consequence judgment has been given  in '--Haskin's     favor     hy      default',  that the    mine      is,-    to      he    sold  hy  the  sheriff'on the 21st inst., arid  the     -shareholders   are    left   with. a  choice of either1 clubbing together to  buy the   mine in or losing the money  which they subscribed  for'the stock.  If there is> any other course, .which  they can pursue, if there is any ulterior object'in 'suffering this -judgment  to go hy  default, whicli may save, the  shareholders'   money,^   the    Herald  thinks that the directors must see that  it is due'not only-to the shareholders,  but  to   themselves, to   make a  plain  -   - -���������* ^     -     -,-. - _3>.. -  statement through, the public press of  the situation..'

Had Mr. Laurier only hail the  ccitiriige of his convictions, had he, instead of begging Rome to discipline  the bishops, dared to bring I o bear em  them the mae-hinery nf the British  law, or if no statute was ready to his  hand, dared to use hi-, cinistitution.il  powers as a British statesman to propose and pass one to meet the case,  then every true English speaking man  within the Dominion, whether Liberator Conservative, wonld^havc* been  behind him, and .would have backed  his efforts to brush aside the last  shadowy remnant nf that usurping  ecclesiastical tyranny, of which their  forefathers grnppleel with the terrible  reality. But he has "chosen to adopt  his present course, and lost the*, political opportunity of his career.  SO  TOWNSITE  $IIO.  _,    .MJjjjn.  ������������������ ���������  AND  ARE NOW .ON THE  MARKET.

Rcvclstoko, B.O., April ICth, 1907.  we are told he has really come to prep  tect the " constitutional liberties" of  the people of 'Quebec, including we  presume the '* 45 members of the senate and members eif the House of Commons of Canada; representing therein  the Liberal party," who signed the  petition to the'Pope imploring him to  preserve the political freedom of that  province. - .  The constitutional liberties, which  the people of Quebec are '/isking the  Pope to protect, were wrested from  king and Pope.from bishop and ha^m,  afte^, centuries of conflict, hy the forefather, of the same imperial race, that  is now engaged in' extending them to  every people which comes, whether  peacefully or hy conquest, within the  circle of the Empire and is sufficiently  advanced lo he able to receive them.  The same haud, that gives them, guarantees them. Wherever in civilization  the British flag flies the right of free  speech, a free press, a free vote goes  with it. But these great privileges  were won by fiee men for free men.  The mighty sword of .freedom, welded  in blood on the sacred British soil, is������>  meant for men to handle. Children,  scared at bogeys of their own creation;  Act to authorize the* loan of $2,300,000  for the, purpose of aiding-the construction of railways and other public-  works; it is the sense of this meeting  thnt.no further subsidies or aids be  granted railway companies without  securing tin 'cijuivalent asset in the  assisteel company, and that it has first  been deterinine'd that such railway  company is likely to be- a paying concern or useful in the development of  the country, and further that alLsuch  railways shall he entitled lo collect no  tolls en- make tai ill's fixing rales of  carriage on freight or passengers until such clauses or tariffs have been  submitted to and approved by the  railway-corn iiiil.tee-of~therloeal_egisla_  tore and endorsed by the house.'  The que*stioii of the tilloto the town-  site then came up and after a good  deal of debate, during tho course of  which the fact that A. S. Farwell had  never paid a cent of taxes on his property since the beginning oft he [dispute; eleven years ago, was elicited,  the following resolutions were carried  umCnimously:  1" That whereas tho title to land in  the town of Revelstoke and vicinity  has been for a period'of 11 years in  litigation, causing much dainag-i anil  uncertaiiiity In it's- residents, properly  holders and intending settlers, the  citizens are now assembled in public  meeting for the purpose* nf praying tlie  Duininion and Provincial governments  to afford imini'ditilt.' li'licf, and they tin'  now respect!ally petition (he governments to appoint a joint commission  to at once proceed le) in������_tiirc into the  mutter unci take such steps as will lead  to a speedy settlement thereof.  2. That this meeting request our  member to ask iSiis Attorney-General  on the lloor of the house, whether  taxes can be ceilleelejd' on land, of  which the title is in dispute, and that  in the event of his answer being unfavorable, :i committee consisting of  Messrs. W. M. Brown, 'Coursier. J.  Abrahamson, and Haig collect the  necessary funels and consult a lawyer  us to whether taxes tin on such laud  are collectable.  THE HIGHLAND   GROUP  Mining and Development Company, Ltd.  Tlie prospectus of the above syndicate hus been handeil to the IIurald  for review. The capital of lhe company is the usual- million, one-fourth  of which goes to the development of  the company's properly, as treasury  stock, and the balance to the promoters.

The  company owns four claims on the  Highland group, which they claim tn  be: located cm the Glengarry ledge. As  near as the Herald can iisi-eitain they  are situated on the he.idw.iteis ot  Boyd creek, a tributary of Fish creek,  in "the Lardeau recording division.  Very little is known about them even  among miners and prospectois, who  know the district well, as they lie  above; the other groups, on a part of  the lidge- not much visited. "The  claims are: in fact a rneie piospect and  were stocked almost as soon as discovered and recorded, no development  work having been done on them. To  put it mildly a good deal ot suipuse  was expressed among the Laule.ui  miners when the tie", s th.it the company was offering stoe k to the public  on such slenelt-r pieispetts was announced. The Herald undeist mils that  Mr. Lnndy is tit pi esenL busily engaged  in selling shares to the tanning communities, of Southern Manitoba.

Till reading the above sentence*  the HeiLvld had always supposed that  the expression "Development Co."  was.siniply a flower of speech cultivated, by itie writers oE milling prospectuses.

Deputy Minister of the Interior, has  i-een forwarded by him to the Board  of Trade and was roael at the meeting  of tlie council on Thursday night.  Ottawa, March :11st, 1807.'  Sill.���������I beg le) acknowledge leceipt  of your letter of the 2!)th instant wilh  regard to the matter of patents for  laud in the* townsite* of Revelstoke, B.  I J. On consulting Mr. Hall, the Secretary of the Depailment, it appears  clear to me that what you have reference to is patents for laud within the  townsite sold by Mr. A. S. Farwell  prior to the time when his right lo sell  was denied by the courts. It is also  clear to me; that at the time* of your  visit, lo the* department it, was not understood in What relation ' your e*n-  quiries were made. I may say that  some years ago the department issued  patents in a great many instances to  pm chasers from Farwell, all hough  tht*ic was no legal obligation to do so.  Tjliere. has been great delay em account  of the refusal of the government of  British Columbia-tc) issue instructions  to the local registrars lo register titles  granted by the Dominion for lanels  within the railway belt, but I believe*  that the necessary instructions have  now been issued to the registrars by  the Provincial authorities, and that  this difliculty is a thing of tlie past so  far at least as lands in the townsite of  Revelstoke aie concerned.  It is possible that you may have  reference to land which was grunted  by the Provincial government to  to Messrs. Farwell, Wi ight and others,  the patents for which have since been  set -iside by the com Is. If that be the  case. I may say that negotiations are  now proceeding between this government and the government of British  Columbia with a view to the conflrma-  Uon of the title originally granted by  Uie Province except in so far as it may  affect propeities since disposed of by  the Dominion government. These*  neeotiations are being carried forward  with tis much rapidly as possible, the  matter being somewhat difficult to  deal wilh, but there is no delay here.  I have the honor lo be.

SATURDAY,    :'" APRIL 10,       1S07.  THE. LOCAL NE1VSPAPER  "The great "daily of tho present  da.y is the creation of men and  machinery. Ifrhas a vast corps of  news gatherers and news editors,  who together furnish and digest  the food on which the monster  lives. To every part of the world,  to"the big city or the little hamlet,  the telegraph radiates like a system of nerves, and the slightest  disturbance out of the regular  order of things (which is news)  i9 registered by the sensitive electricity, and notice is given instan-  ter at the common center. Type  is no longer. 'set,' but a machine  with typewriter keyboard puts  copy into type live times as  fast as. the old composite!* did.  Theri great . presses print both  sides, fold and. cut twenty thousand complete papers' iu an hour,  from continuous rolls of paper  miles in length.  "The country paper, however,  still plods along in much the old  fashioned way, with some improvements and conveniences, but  in many of the smaller offices, at  least, the type, tools and other  miscellany peculiar to print-shops*,  and even the presses, are not different from those 'used by Ben  Franklin.'  "The great daily often has more  pages than the country weekly  has columns, and it is often true  that the larger editions of some of  the daily papers are sold on the  streets for less money per copy  ���������tkan the cost of the white paper  on which they are printed, and  they will send a copy every day  in the year to subscribers for* a  price but'*.vlittle more than the  price of a country weekly.  "Time was when the counfcry  and city paper were not so far  -apart���������in���������matter--of���������price;���������-but-  luachinery and tbe telegraph have  done in the printing business  much the same as machinery aud  invention in other trades. Time  was when the blacksmith made  Lis shoes and nails. Once the  sAioemaker was a shoemaker, not  a cobbler. Doors, windows, cornices, were once made by the  carpenter.  "Aud yet this change has not  made us want the blacksmith, the  shoemaker, or carpenter tlie less ;  invention and machinery have  timply changed the Hues of labour.  "The daily paper is the creature  'if a vast machine. Mechaneally  it is far in advance of tho country  newspaper ; editorially it i.s more  obstruse, more brainy. But  because it is the creature of a vast  machine it is necessarily mechanical, and lacks the individuality of  l he more awkward country sheet.  The great daily is planned for  thousands of readers by scores of  writers, between whom there is no  bond'of acquaintance or personal  knowledge. The ^country editor  writes and works for a smaller  circle, with many, if not most, of  whom he often comes in personal  contact, and with whom he holds  a certain personal and social  relation. Once the Xew York  Tribune was know as" 'Horace  Greely's paper,' the Herald ns  'Bennett's,' but nowadays the  personality of no one man is great  enough to individualize a great  metropolitan newspaper. But the  country paper is yet, and probably  always will be, better known by  the cognomen and characteristics  of its editor than by any other  way.  "The field of the country paper  is. by the superior facilities of the  city papers, narrowed down to its  own limited locality and to the  chronicling of the events of local  interest. Hence its circulation  must be limited in number, for no  matter how good tho local paper  its news is only of local interest.  But iu making a newspaper the  greatost cost is typesetting. When  the forms aro on the press the cost  of making more or less papers is  but little moro than the cost of  white paper. Again, the price of  advertising is largely based on  ciiciilation, and that is where the  daily makes its money. The  advertiser is rightlymore willing to  talk to twenty or forty thousand  readers than to talk to five hundred or a thousand readers. On  tho other hand, however, the local  paper with its smaller number of  renders is just as valuable, or  rathor moro valuable, in its sphere-  as a medium for advertising for  local enterprises ; which local  enterprises are like the newspaper  also confined to a local circle. That  is, it would not pay for a local  merchant iu Calgary to advertise  his goods in a Minneapolis daily ���������  while it is truo hundreds would  see his advertisement, yet few of  those hundreds would come to  trade.  To the local reader the local  paper fills a vacancy not supplied  by the great daily. Matters of  purely local interest, announcements, marriages," births, deaths,  and such things, often trivial, and  rarely of interest out of the  locality, are, nevertheless, of great  interest and often useful to the  local reader. Hence we say the  local paper, though it may be  smaller, poorer, and iu many ways  inferior, yet costs the maker more,  and is really worth more to the  reader than than the mammoth,  city paper.  The concert of the powers at  Crete was but a poor display of  harmony. The performance of  the European Blockade was  entirely too loud, and lacked  earnestness and finish. The War  Ships', Obligato failed to bring  down the house. A Cretan audience is difficult to amuse.  NEWS NOTES.  The Nova Scotii Conservatives have  nominated candidates in 13 out ot IS  constituencies.  Johannes Brahms, tlie well known  musician and- composer, is dead. He  had been ill for a long time.  D.i. Rutherford has been again nominated by Macdonald Liberals to contest the vacancy in  that constituency.  The: Ottawa correspondent of the  Globe says that if the Government  'keeps up the pace, prorogation will be  reached by the middle of J une.   ���������  Mayor Bentlev and Dr. L. G. De  Veb'er, of Lethbridge. have gone to  Ottawa as a delegation in connection  wilh matters pertaining to the interests of the town.  The libel suit of Robert Henry,  ex-M.P. for South Brant, against the  Brantford Expositor has resulted in ca  verdict for tlie plaintiff for $3)0  damages and costs.  The Mail and Empire condemns the  new franchise bill .as unduly complicated and as being bad in principle, in  delegating-to.a lower-power��������� the���������right-  to create a constituency* for the central  governing body.  Hon. Mr. Laurier intimated in the  Ilouse of Commons on Thursday that  it, is not the intention of the Government to disallow the British Columbia  .Southern railway act as it was purely  a local measure."  Winnipeg Conservatives deny the  truth of the published statement that  Ex-Mayor Jamieson woulel not De  opposed. A contest is certain to take  place, and a meeting will be held in a  few days to decide on the Conservative  line ot action.  It is rumoured thai Arthur J. Balfour, flrft. lord of the treasury, leader  of the Commons, will marry l-idy  Helen Stewart, who goes by the nipk-  name of "���������Birdie," daughter and favourite of the Marr.uis ot' Londonderry,  and an extremely pretty anel clever  amateur actress.  The Canadian Pacific officials at  Monti en! state that the Joint Traffic  Association has ordered the Grand  Trunk to withdraw their tariff recently- issued making the rates to the  Kootenay district of British Columbia  the .same: as those of the Canadian  Pacific and ignoring the latter Company's claim to a differential, it������ route  not being an all rail one. They therefore announce their intention "of issuing a new tariff cutting down the rates  to allow for the claimed differential.  The Grand Trunk deny that they have  received any order from the Joint  Traffic Association, but they s.-iy they  will merit the C. P. R. cut and if necessary will carry passengers and goods  free.  An exciting contest is being waged  in Champlain county. The sole issue  of the campaign turns on the Manitoba school question. At a meeting at  Ste*. Genevieve De Batiscan Dr. Mnri-  otte said he resigned because he was  unwilling that the clergy should be  dragged Ir. fore the courts, ns the Liberals a! tempted, lie resigned that Ins  conduct should be vindicated at the  polls. Dr. Triielel. Liberal candidate,  made.a declaration with regard to his  attitude on the schools. "Though^  he said, "I approve of the school settlement, as being the best that could  be maele:, if trie delegate of the Holy  Father condemns the settlement, I will  also condemn it. If the papal delegate shall declare it impossible under  existing conditions to be Liberal and  Catholic at the name time, I cease to  he    a   Liberal   and  shall   remain   a  Catholic."  Mr. P. Burns has opened a meat  market at Brandon, B. C, with J. D.  McCallum as manager.  The* Kamloops Sentinel says that the  construction of the new jail will fill a  long felt want, but it won't take the  place of a first class hotel.  The name of Mr. M. C. Cameron has  been mentioned in connection wilh the  rumoured vacancy in the lieutenant-  governorship of the Territories.  Mrs. Gravelle, of Ottawa, whose husband elied from diphtheria las'. January, has made a claim for damages  against the city on the grounds thai  her husband's deaLli was caused by the  neglect of the health ollicer in not attending to him when summiined.  Mr. Lumsden, in charge of tho C. P.  R, survey party, now working west of  Macleod, was in town this week. Mis  party is now at work above: Mr. Lug-  raudcut's. Up to Monday last the  weather hail interfered with the. work  of the engineers.���������Macleod Gazette.  ilr. Laurier, replying lo a question  on the subject put by Air. flavin in thu  House of Commons, slated that tlie  question of sending a parly of the  North West. Mounted Police to ICng-  land on the occasion of the jubilee* was  being considered by the Government.  In the Senate on Friday, Senator  MiicDonald of British Columbia, introduced ti bill to commemorate the  reign of Her Majesty by making her  birthday a holiday lorevor. The bill  in its preamble, recites that, whereas  the reign of Her Most Gracious Majesty  Quoc'n Victoria is the longestanel most  distinguished in peace, civilization,  art, commerce, and the perfecting anil  adaption of scientific cliscovevies lo  the interests of mankind in the history  of the empire, it is befitting that the  same should be maiked in every way  that may do honour to Her Majesty  and perpetuate her name. It"enacts  that the interpretation act be amended so tis lo constitute 24th of May as  a holiday for all time in the Dominion.  The Government may adopt the bill.  The stock raisers of the upper country will have good cause to remember  the winter of 1SJ7-U, says the Nelson  Miner. If a thaw does not set in  quickly fully 50 per cent of the cattle  on the ranges will be dead from starvation. 'Hardly a rancher litis a ton  of feed left owing to the exceptionally  long spell of cold weather and heavy  snowfall. Reports justify the statement that many of the small stock  raiseis will be ruined, and even.the  big ranchers and cattle companies will  he" heavily hit. Abundance of cheap  hay is lequired" tit once if the stock'  men are to save a smnll'ptoportion of  their cattle. The Canadian Pacific  has come to the assistance of the  stockmen with an offer of reduced  rates on hav shipments from the coast  and the North West. A rate of $70-a  car is offered from the North West  territory points and $10 a car from the  coast. ��������� -  It has remained for a citizen of Victoria to out-heiod Herod in the way of  seizure of goods and chattels for nonpayment of rent. The matter became  public through a warrant being sworn  outagainst Thomas Pamphlet by one  Sarah Ryan charging him with un-'  lawfully de.tainincr and having in his  possession contrary to the law in such  cases made and provided, etc., etc., to  wit, one female child nine months old.  The mother's version o[ the aff;'ir i.s.  that'having become delinquent in the  matter of prompt payment of rent, the  landlord, the aforesaid Pamphlet, did  eject or cause her to be ejected, and  with malice prepense and afore  tliought detained in durance vile*, the  body of the afore said batiy and against  the will of tbe same. The amount of  rent due was $7, but when Pamphlet  heard of the drastic measures taken  by the mother for the recovery of her  infant, he thought discretion the better part of valor and gave the child up.

made a long and violent speed* ele-
liouncing the imlicy of the: Government
which he ch.it-.ictcri'/.ed tit. u policy of
fostering a perfect nest, of .triarchy
and slaughter.
Mr. Bailout- replying on behalf of
Government said that he would welcome a motion of censure. It would
give the Government an opportunity
to defend its policv. - lie wished to
reiterate that the. great '.towers were
not siding with Turkey but were only
defending Lhe lives of Mohammedan Cretans against those who
were* not Mohammedan " anil
their allies. ��� The policy of the British
Government was lo give the Cretans
self government and ho had not the
slightest doubt, he said, iu conclusion,
that Crete would obtain freedom,
though he could not speakof the peace
of Europe with the   same   confidence.
The best, course for the maintenance
of peace was to second the t euicerl ot

out in tho losoltil.ion that, the rich coal
deposits iu Allien la will lind their
natural market in Molilalia, when:
such minerals aie not abundant.
Alberta is rich in ceuil���anthracite,
soft coal suitable for. boilers, and coke
cn.il.- Montana is importing 'largo
quantities of tinlht-ticitoanel coke from
the eastern Slates, while Lethbridge
with ils'narrow gauge contrivance is
sending down 'about three trains a
w���L it is estimated that the smellers of Montana would consume 100,000
tons of coke per annum, and with good
railway facilities there would be nothing lo prevent the mines of Alberta
securing the bulk of the trade. This
trade would not, in any way out into
the li'cifllc of tho Canadian Pacific
Railway, while the.-idvantages of local
ni'irkets for farm produce would cause
a development in which the through
Canadian lino would share. Farmers
have left Alberta, not for.any dissatisfaction resariling soil or climate, hut
through the great ilifiieullv of finding
and reaching markets. Wilh tho establishment of a good rnilwnv connection with American "lines this undesirable migration would coast*. Then,
would "bo no danser to any Canadian

Severe Rate .Cutting Into Kootenay���
Canadian,' Pacific , and the Great
Northern 'Competing   for   Business
The rate, war between the Canadian
"Pacific railway and the Great'Northern and Northern Pacihc for the business from eastern Canada to the
Kootenay district litis developed some
features of considerable interest, and
the most immediate result is a decided
drop in the price of "tickets to that
point. Formerly the fate, over tho
Canadian'.Pacific to Rossland was
"���oft.50. and 551.50 to Trail, Kaslo and
Nelson, By the Grand Trunk and
Great. Northern it was $02 50, Now,,
however, owing to the rate cutting
that has neen going on between tho
two competing lines the price ol
tickets has dropped to 850 from any
point in Ontario and Quebec to the
4Cootenny* juid "it___s. said tbatticKets
have been "sold as low as $10. Oiic"
thing is certain, and that is that the
igents ol tbe two lines are not going
ti. let any cut stand m the way of
gelling the business.
The Grand Trunk says lhat it is not
cutting rates, and this is nominally
true. But the purchaser of a'ticket
pays lho full fait* to Chicago oi-St,
Paul on the Grand Tiurik, and then
the Great Northern issues a ticket
through at the cut rale. ��� For iusUir.ee,
tine man who wont lo the Kootennv
last week got a through rate tivi>r the
Grand Trunk and Great Northern for
SnO.SO. He paid the Grand Trunk
"JJ.5SJ. the fare to St. Paul, nnd thou
the Great "Northern canied him the
rest of the wnv for $2S, although the
regular rate of the latter road from
St. Paul "to Rhsslanil is $11. That tbe
cutting by lhe competing roads i.s
severe is admitLed|by the roads themselves, and there does not at the pres-
s'ent time appear to be any piosyect
of a settlement.
Another cause of friction between
thp Canadian Paoitlc and the Great
���Northern was over the freight rates to
the Kootenay. Tho Canadian Pacific
recently made a reduction in rates
from Winnipeg to the coast, which
made the throuch rate 10 cents per-100
pounds cheaper than the Grand Trunk
and Great Northern were carrying
foi*. and in some cases even more.
This cut. however, was met hy tho
Great Northern, and the* rales on hoth
lines are now similar,���Celohe.
