No. 24  CONGRESS  !  TV P. Q'  MP.  The Anajlo-Saxon race has ever heen the champion of religion*  \ liberty. We believe as a people in allowing each person to entertain whatever views he may wiah on all religious questions, and  this generous attitude has dorie much towards the advancement of  civilisation and the moral elevation of the national character.  &o more striking example of this large minded-liberality need  be sought for than that which has been given in the recent Euchar-  istic Congress in Montreal and the former Congress held in England/ It was a measure of surprise to some of our foreign Roman  Catholic friends that distinctly Protestant countries, such as England and Canada, should not only allow, but should show sympathetic interest in the convention. It is one of .the most attractiv#  features of Protestantisrii that they insist upon? perfect freedom of  .conscience, both towards those who are of like faith and to those  ^who differ. ;. :,- 7   ',.../.-)   .,/;..w ,,, -;,:,t. ���������...,.. ,k,...    .;    ��������� ��������� ,.:= ���������������..���������.;  7   7 Theipe is ^an aualoaw������*char*4eriatic iniourpolitwal lite, gen-  terallvi a?*eokincr we in^st uponabsolute independenceof church and  |at������ta3n*i������ of religion andf polities,   this ;pjjn^iple has, not always^;  [obtaiti������<T, in" fact.

It was called to decide upon representatives for the next  election, yet objection-vvas taken to the meeting-and that part was  leftover.

Mr. Cameron is a progressive young- business man. with ...a-, .due a ppreciation. oi/lhe_ demands of this growing city.

Mr. McMaster is a. capable man  in every respect, and just the kind of man wanted in the civic  arena,  Mr. T. P. O'Connor, M. P., arrived in Vancouver on his palatial  private ear on Wednesday last. He is making a tour of the States  and of Canada, soliciting financial aid from all and sundry for his  "Home Rule" campaign, which he states ia nearing a successful  eonelngjon. .  Mr. O'Connor addressed the Canadian Club and delivered an  eloquent oration on his favorite theme. As would be expected, his  remarks were interspersed with a great deal of native Irish wit,-  which called forth repeated rounds of applause from a sympathetic  audienee. . .//���������/.-/'  Boiled down to commonplace fact*, the burden of Mr. O'Connor's speech was this: Home rule for England, Ireland, Scotland  and Wales,'because of difference in race, in creed and in local land-  policies. Underlying all his remarks was evident ���������#rery strong  desire to secure for Ireland an established state religion which  would be acceptable to most of her citizens. The tenacity with  which he clung to this point, and yet the avoidance of any direct  statement regarding it, shows clearly that Mr. O'Connor would,  when the opportunity is given (if it ever is given) establish a joint  secular and religious government/ 7 ���������:���������.���������'���������'."���������'���������  In all other points Mr. O'Conndr seemed to be striving intelligently for the best interests of his isountry and of the-empire. His  advocacy of the principle of small ownership of lands or peasant  propcrietors, was eloquently and logically presented and with great  force. He also exhibited a keen appreciation of the responsibilities  of imperialism. His address oh the whole was entertaining and  instructive. Vaneouverites who heard him should now have a better idea of the "Home Rule" question and its possible effects.  In view of the recent events in Portugal, Spain, Italy and  Prance, as a result of too intimate relationship between church and  state, it might be well to allow Ireland, to have "Home Rule/' I  know of no better way to cure the persistent demand for church  and state control than by bitter experience. The Irish are sufficiently pugnacious to throw off a yoke which is too burdensome,  and it is certain they would find that the burden of "Home Rule"  attached to the skirts of the priesthood would be infinitely more  irksome than administration from Westminster Hall.  feohtrast to that of his aforcrmentipned colleagues.

TROUBLES.  GREAT BRITAIN'S  AWFUL CRIME  Rev. Marten Smith Delivm Powtrfol Addmt on Opiam TnSte.  We print this week the moat complete and forceful declamation  of Britain's responsibility for China?a opium curse ,thatj*e feave  evefv^en'^/W������ w every Maderib atndy/ii well. Thereh ia  no doubt that the responsibility is ours, but we have formed a convenient habit of ignoring it and keeping it in the background. The  time has now arrived,for action. What shall we do as a nation! Tbe  following resolution was passed at the conclusion of Mr. Smith's  address, and will he forwarded to the Imperial authorities:  Resolution moved by Thos. Duke, seconded by John Graham,  That this meeting at Knox Congregational Church, believing  that the growth and manufacture of opium in India for export to  China, enforced by appeal to Treaties, is "morally indefensible"  a serious hindrance to the influence of Christianity in the East, and  that the British name will not be free from reproach nor China be  free to purge herself from this evil, so long as this policy ia continued,  urges upon His Majesty's Government that without delay  (1) China be formally released from Treaty obligations to  admit opium;  (2) The connection of the Indian Government with the opium  export trade be brought to an end;  (3) The financial difficulties, created by the cessation of the  opium revenue, be met by the British Imperial and Indian  Governments, in a way that shall not increase the taxation of the mass of the people in India nor injure the  feudatory States concerned.  I am not sheading to-night for the  establishment of the Millenium, nor  even that Britain Bhould adopt the  principles of the Gospel in her dealings with China.' - Simply, that we  should return to-moral decency from  which we strayed over 60 years ago,  and that as a government we. should  maintain a business virtue as high, at  least, as that seTby those whom we} vice of smoking opium was introduced  tion of the awfulness of Britain's  crime. I must now briefly review the  past history ot the trade in opium with  China.  ' The medicinal use of the' poppy has  been known - ln China for 900 years.

Because Roman Catholics in the township of Cambridge, Rus-  tl County, insist on having' the cateehism taught in the rural pub-  Ischool/a gainst the protest of a Protestant minority, Mr. Morris  iver and other ratepayers of the township have taken action  linst the publie school board.   The Writ was filed at the court  hse here yesterday.   The case will be tried at the next sitting of  high court.   The plaintiffs ask to quash and set aside a certain  >lution passed by the public school trustees on August 22, 1910,  icting ihe teachers of their schools, to teach the.catechisn^.tq  [ir pupils.

On May 30th, 1906, the following resolution carried unanimously: ^  "That this House re-affirms its conviction that the Indo-Chinese opium  traffic is morally indefensible, and requests His Majesty's Government to  take such steps as may be necessary  for bringing it to a speedy close."  And on May 6th, 1908, two years  later, another ringing resolution was  again carried, without a dissentient  voice:  "That this House, having regard to  its resolution unanimously adopted on  30th May, 1906, that, the Indo-Chinese  opium trade is morally indefensible,  welcomes the action of His Majesty's  Government diminishing the sale of  opium for export, and thus responding  to the action of the Chinese Government in tlieir arrangement for tho sup.  prossion of the consumption of the  drug in that empire, and  this  House  this time onward the sale of opium for  purposes of smoking became a criminal offense.  In 1729 the arrival of foreign opium  in China was only 200 chests. This in-  creased, in spite of the edict, to 1,000  chests in 1767, and to 4,000 chests in  1790, passing the customs, doubtless,  as medicine, ln 1796 an edict, formally prohibiting the importation of all  opium was issued, and in 1800 this  edict wasi issued:anew. "     ^       "~^  Britain's responsibility for the Ben-  galese opium trade with.China began  in 1773, when Warren Hastings, finding it a private and profitable monopoly, took it over as a good source  of revenue for the East India Company. Warren Hastings' declaration  as to opium was: "Opium is not a necessary of life, but a pernicious article  of luxury, which ought not to be permitted except for purposes of foreign  commerce only, and which the wisdom  of the government should carefully  restrain from internal consumption.-'  The policy of this man, then, was to  restrain the consumption of this drug  A.

He  against God and a crime against man;amassed   an   enormous     fortune     for  in this matter of the opium traffic.  Crime is a harsh word. It is not  mine. On December 3rd. 1S42. the  London Times, only, in a leading article,  delivered   itself as  follows:  "We think it of the highest moment  tlint ihe Government of Great Britain  should wash its hands once and for all.  not only of all diplomatic, but of all  moral and practical responsibility for  this (the opium) traffic; that we  should cease to be mixed up with it,  to foster it, or to make it a source of  Indian revenue. . . . We owe some  moral compensation to China for pillaging her towns and slaughtering her  citizens, in a quarrel which never  couid have arisen if we had not been  guilty of'-tkhi national ���������crime:"  That was written St years ago. Ia  order tnat we may nava  those days. He left turbulent India in  profound peace and was received home  with marked favor. But Warren Hast-  ings ere long was hurled from his pinnacle. Impeached before the House of  Lords, ruined by a trial that dragged  through seven years, and although acquitted befoie man, he stands guilty  before God of inaugurating a policy  that has meant a century of shameful  procedure by Great Britain.  The Chinese edicts of 1796 and 1800  brought the trade in opium down to  2,000 chests. It quickly revived again,  however, until in 1820 It reached 5,000  chests. As early as 1782 remonstrances had come to the British East  India Company from their oflcials at  Canton, deprecating the trade, in view  ef jti being prohibited by Chlaa.

C���������With the success of  tne first Canadian National Apple  Show from an exhibition standpoint  now assured there is every indication  of a large attendance of visitors from  the entire Province and even through -  out the Dominion. '- The engagement  of the 48th Highlanders' Military  Band, a leading band-of Canada and  one of the world's best musical organizations, has added very much to the  attractions of the Big Show.  The -18th Highlanders' Band wftich  has never been west of the Rockies  will play twelve concerts, two daily,  with an entire change of program at  each performance.  The management beiieves that every  obstacle to the success of the big un -  dertaking lias now been removed by  the Canadian Pacific Railway Company granting a one way first class  tare for the round trip from all  points in the Dominion of Canada, and  in addition to that have granted selling dates in advance of the regular  selling dates to the publie for the benefit of the exhibitors, thus giving to  all exhibitors the-same privileges  granted to the public.  Exhibitors' tickets will be sold  the certificate plan. The dates  selling for British Columbia,. Alberta  and Saskatchewan being Friday Octo -  ber 21st to Saturday October 29th.

The bills being prepared for legislative action all seem to  oe.on the one pian of ..getting *������~.  .estimouy from a witness called bj  the court, paid by the state or county,  and absolutely independent of prose -  cution or -defense���������as nearly impartia-  as human plans can make it in our  present, state of imperfection and,fallibility. '<There may be defects in the  bills, no doubt there are. for. no human action is perfect; but it must be  confessed that no better plans have  been suggested so far and that some  of the ablest physicians and lawyers  have given the subject very serious  consideration. The accused uikI prosecutor can employ all the experts they  desire :to help in the conduct of the  case, but such men will now br openly  acknowledged as hired partizans who  ran not occupy the witness chair.  "The proposed laws exclude the  partisan expert and. as the court is  not presumed to know who are com -  petent, confine the choice to a list  supplied by a reputable body, say a  local medical society in the case of  medical cases. An engineering or  chemical society should similarly  nominate experts for their particular  lines. To eliminate the dangers of  officialism and the exclusion of experts from abroad or of new men not  yet recognized as expert, there should  be provision for the court calling any  man jointly requested by the defense  and prosecution if it so desires. We  presume this will come in time���������if not  already provided for in twenty states  now studying the matter: but even If  then* is no such provision, it is ho  ground for opposition, as the measures  are so infinitely superior to the pres -  ent horrors that every^oine should der,  mand the early enactment of the bills.

EMPIRE BEAUTY SHOW.  A novel feature of the Festival oT  Empire next summer will be the beauty show for competitors of both sexes,  in which the most beautiful women  and the handsomest men will compete.  It will be one of the biggest beauty  shows on record, for the idea Is to Invite the most beautiful women and  the handsomest men from every Oversea State, as well as from England,  Ireland, Scotland and Wales. -These  Empire beauties will be selected by  various local   committees,   and   they  self to thank  That when Otto cranked the auto, why  young Otto was the crank.  For Otto left, the auto with the   levsi-  pushed to "go,"  When he ought to   have   reversed ^u.  - with the   power   shut   off   you  know:  So when Otto cranked   the   auto   the  auto gave a jump,  And landed Otto sprawling   with   an  automatic thump.  But Otto grabbed the auto as the auto  autoed by,  Then Qtto and   the   auto   down   the  street did fly;  And at a speed that auto the luckless  Otto whirled  Like   an   automobile    autocrat   who  thinks he owns the world;  While the auto-hating    public    stood  and watched the auto rash  Till it ran against a lamp-post with a  most terrific crash;  Then they sadly laid poor Ctto,   who  has lost his auto zest,  Where the autos cease from troubling  and the Ottos are at rest.  LENVOI.  Now in this auto story, with    its   sad  and fatal turn,  There is a moral    hidden   which    we  surely ought to learn:  No Otto ought to auto till he    knows  the auto rules,  For an automatic auto is no   toy   for  auto fools.

The events preceding this  latest war I would rather not relate,  they are full of horrors.

Alcock described as "in--  Isting and urging by every argument!  ley  could   adduce,  the  necessity  of  le British Government consenting to  ie total prohibition of opium."  11 will draw my to-night's address to  close  with  this    appeal   from   the  lovernment  of  China,   and   in   order  lat you may appreciate Chinas atli-  Lde, I must ask you to listen to this  bted official document in full:  .,  earnestly on the subject.  ^"rom Tsung-Li-Yamen to Sir Alcock,  p-aly, 1869.,  Chinese Foreign Office.  |)'The writers have on several occa-  jns, when conversing with His Ex-  "That opium is like a deadly poison,  that it is most Injurious to mankind,  and a most serious provocative of ill-  feeling is, the writers think, perfectly well-known to His Excellency, and  ; it  is  therefore needless  for them to  l'enlarge further on these points.  1 "The Prince" (Prince Kung was the  President of the Board) and his colleagues are quite aware that the opium  trade has long been condemned by  England as a na km, and that the  i ight-minded merchant scorns to have  to do with it.  "But the officials and peopte of this  Empire, who cannot be so comp.etely  ! informed on the subject, all say that  England trades in opium because she  desires to work China's ruin; for (say  lency, the British Minister, referred j they) if. the friendly feelings of Eng-  the opium trade as being preju-: land are genuine, since it is open to  ial to the general interests of com-j her to produce and trade ��������� everything  rce. The object, of the treaties be-  fen our respective countries was to  'jure perpetual peace; but if effective  |-ps cannot be taken to remove an  Cumulating sense of injury from the  'ads of men, it is to be feared that  policy can obviate sources of fu-  e trouble.  L'Day and night tbe writers are con-  [ering the question with a view to  solution, and the more tbey reflect  It, tbe greater does their anzi-  beeeme, and hereon they cannot  ������M and r���������ing His JBaeeUencr very  else, would she still insist on spreading the poison of this hurtful thing  throughout the Empire?  "There are those who say, 'Stop the  trade by enforcing a vigorous prohi-  ! bition against the use of the drug.'  China has the risrht to do so. doubtless, and might be able to effect it;  but a strict enforcement of the prohibition would necessitate tbe taking of  many lives. Now, although the criminals' punishment would be of their] stamp out the Import trade and then,  own seeking, bystanders would not fail after that bad been accomplished, to  to ear that-it ini tbe fof*i������������ mer- prohibit  tbe    production    of opium  chani seduced them to their ruin byf  brining the drug, and it would be hard '  io mevent general and deep-seated;  indignation.. Such a course, indeed j  would tend to arouse popular .angeri  against the foreigner.  "There are others, again, who suggest the removal of the prohibitions  against the growth of the poppy.  They argue that, as there is no means  of stopping the foreign (opium) trade,  there can be no harm as a temporary  measure in withdrawing the prohibition on its growth. We should thus,  not only deprive the foreign merchant  of a main source of his profits, but  should increase our revenue to boot.  The soverign rights of China are, indeed, competent to this. Such a  course would be practicable; and, indeed, the writers cannot say that, as  a last resource, it will not come to  this; but they are most unwilling  that such prohibition should be removed, holding, as they do, tbat a right  system of government should appreciate the beneficence of heaven, and  seek to remove any grievance which  afflicts its people, while to allow them  to go on to destruction, although an  Increase of revenue may result, will  provoke tbe judgment of Heaven and  the condemnation of men.  "Neither of the above plans, Indeed,  are satisfactory. If it be desired to  remove the very root, and to stop the  evil at its source, nothing will be effective-but a prohibition, to be enforced alike by both parties. 7  "Again, the Chinese merchant supplies your country with his goodly tea  and silk, conferring thereby a benefit  upon her;   but the. Eng'ish merchant  empoisons China with pestilent opium.  Such conduct is unrighteous.   Who-caii  Justify  it?    What wonder If  officials  and people say that England is wilfully  working out China's ruin, and has no  real   friendly   feeling  for   her?    The  wealth and generosity of England are  spoken by all; she (s anxious to prevent and anticipate all Injury to her  commercial Interests.   How is it, then,  she can hesitate to remove an acknowl-  sdged evil?   Indeed, It cannot be that  England still holds to this evil business, earning the hatred of the officials  'nd people of China, and making ber-  elf a reproach among the nations, bemuse she ''would lose a little revenue  vere Bhe to forfeit the cultivation of  ���������the poppyVk I \ \-k       ).     .. ���������: 7;,.

"This matter Is injurious to com-  ���������nerclal interest in no ordinary degree.  f His Excellency tbe British Minister  cannot, before it Is too late, arrange  i plan tor a Joint prohibition (of the  'raffle), then no matter with what de-  otedness the writers may plead, they  may be unable to cause the people to  ut aside f!l-feeling, -and so sirengthen  rlendly relations as to place them for  ?!ver beyond fear of disturbance..

Having  ^hus presumed to unbosom themselves,  Miey would be honored by His Excellency's reply."  This appeal by the Chinese Government was sent home to the British  lovernment by Sir R. Alcock, accompanied by a confidential despatch, fully  endorsing the Chinese apepal. Tho  following is an extract from that official letter:  "He had no doubt that abhorrence  expressed by the Government and peo.  pie ot China for opium as destructive  to the Chinese nation, was genuine  and deep-seated; and that he was also  quite convinced that the Chinese Government could, if it pleased, ���������cany out  its threat of developing cultivation to  any extent. On the other hand, he believed that so strong was the popular  feeling on the subject, that if Britain  would give up the opium revenue,  and suppress the cultivation in India,  the Chinese: Government, would have  no difficulty in suppressing it in China,  except in the Province of Yunnan  where its authority is in abeyance."  Such then, was the appeal addressed  to Great Britain by the Chinese Government and backed by our own representative. After many months of  waiting and repeated applications for  an answer. Sir R. Alcock was at length  compelled to say to the Chenise cabinet that there was no response, and  that none need be expected. Then began the .last awful lap in the degradation of a whole nation. China, despairing of getting any relief from Britain,  launched into the most extensive cultivation of the poppy, producing opium  at a much cheaper rate tban could be  done in India.

The coming final judgment  in the eternal sphere Is necessarily of  individuals. A nation has its hirth.  childhood, youth, manhood and maturity in this present world. Proportioned  to its establishment in justice and  righteousness will be its real strength.  worth and continuance. The endorsement of Injustice, slavery and iniquity  by any nation, will secure its chastisement, hasten its judgment, and precipitate its final overthrow. It is but  a question of time and of the Divine  forbearance.

He must take orders  from the new religious tyranny that is  Roosevelt may be a noisy agitator,  but he is also something of a man. The  following' incident is characteristic of  the man. He seems to be honest in  spite of his brusqueness, the "Literary  Digest" relates the following :  In striking contrast   to   Mr. Roose -  DRUNK ON DUTY  Surely in self-deiense, citizens will  ultimately be driven to suppress all  liquor selling for beverage purposes,  in view of the tearful peril in which,  under the responsibilities of modern  civilization, men who drink may put  the lives of others. This possibility  is forcibly illustrated in a press despatch from Winnipeg    published    in  the daily papers of    September    12th,  velfssnubbingof Senator Lorimer. in jwhich    sa-d.   SamS(m    Paiison,    aged  Chicago, is-his recent    meeting    with  Judge Lindsey, at Denver.     When the  ex-Pres;dent arrived at the station he  was met by a delegation of Denver's  prominent citizens; but Judge Lindfey  perhaps the most distinguished citi ���������  zen, was noticeable for. his absence.  Inquiry revealed that the judge of the  "Kid's Court" hah been snubbed by  the committee, and the ingenious re-j  buke devised by Colonel Roosevelt   is  as   fol -  being set up In Montreal.      For    this j (ok, by tne Denver Express,  tyranny is based on the idea of a solid. jows.  French-Canadian vote    from    Quebec,  and a French-Canadian   wedge in    as  many counties of Ontario 'as possible,  and these all kept in one  solid   block  toy a spiritual chief in Montreal and a  political-   chief   associated   with   that  spiritual head.

He will  tolerate no Irish bishop in Ontario  that will not take orders from Mont -  real and come into the bilingual  game. Nor wiH Mr. Bourassa tolerate  If he can help It, any bishop for Ottawa that is not a French-Canadian. He  says the promotion of the Archbishop  of Kingston to the See of Ottawa is a.  mistake. Bourassa would like a cardinal head at Montreal, who would  rule the whole church In Canada asya  political solidarity. According to  Bourassa, French - Canadians must  have bishops of their race, must have  bi-Iingual schools In every quarter of  Canada, and especially in Ontario, and  that the7only true churchmen are of  his nationality. It would follow from  his argument that a French-Canadian  cannot be satisfied with any Prime  Minister that is not of his race, or, at  the very least, that the French-Canadians' are entitled to a bi-llngnal Premiership. He's bent on a double national front to everything.  TWe are doing Mr. Bourassa no in-  :ustice if we say that he regards the  mission of his race as to crowd the  English out of Quebec, and to recover  Ontario. .The French ? Canaman.con-  gresa, which is largely his machine, ������������������ is  to he the, means of TFiwnchifying this  province and to encircle the nation dl  capital with a range, of absolutely  French counties. then will come  tithes in Ontario.  We Imagine there are Catholics, and  many English'������������������- speaking-..ones,-; that  would prefer to see the English tongue prevail in this province, and that  the public funds be not used to split  Canada into a country of two nations  at every point of the line.  And we cannot deny Mr. Bourassa'a  ambition If he can attain it. He will  do it if the others jet him. And he  hopes to do "it by the creation of a  great political solidarity under spiritual direction.  ,=���������The^Wqrld trusts. that Jhe^ Catholics  of Ontario wiil stand by the Bishop of  London against this new tyranny - in  Montreal. The people of this Province  have swallowed a lot, and may have to  swallow a lot more. But there must  be a limit.  The more the Girouard, Anglin,  Marcil incidents are examined, the  more one reads Mr. Bourassa's deliv -  erances, one Is forced to the conclusion that he is for the submission of  the State to the Church, and for the  ���������creation of a solidarity in the votes of  ���������one faith that will be worked at every"  turn for concessions. We carefully  guard against saying that our fellow  countrymen who are Roman Catholics  all hold this view, but that'3 what  Bourassa holds, and he is busy on the  job. Such a political solidarity in collusion with some of the great corporations in this country would forever  stop all political and other progress in  Canada.  The World trusts that the Bishop of  London wil! rule his own diocese as  they think best, not as Mr. Bourassa,  dictates. And the supreme authority  at Rome might have a care as to creating any spiritual supremacy in Montreal that may he used as a political  solidarity to suit the designs of those  who are for the subjection of the  State to the Church, and whose sole  ambition is to dispossess English-  speaking people of Ontario, and to  make a wreck of the political freedom  that has been established here at so  great a cost.  St is time the people of Ontario began to do a little thinking. They  have trusted to Globes and Stars, and  they have been betrayed.  Bishop Fallon has lots of friends in  Ontario. ; <  when the colonel was resting for a few j tinie f,.pm tne opposite  sides    of   the  minutes, there was shoved    into     h������3' cab, just after the    engineer    set    the j  room a copy of Clay's Review, with ; emergency brakes.
