CUT OUT TONSILS They Arc No Use and Just Breed Dis- ease Say Doctors Chicago, May cutt- ing out of tonsils from the throats of -every-one subject to tuberculosis was advocated by physicians at the fifty- iourth annual convention. of the Il- linois Homeopathic Medical Associa- tion held in the Sherman .house. Tonsils clearly had no friends among the assembled physicians. One described them as 'things good for breeding microbes." Another deciar-' that no use for them ever has been found and the agreement was general that their removal checked incipient tuberculosis. "Twelve per cent, of the children said Dr. 'Kichard H. Street, fwere found infected with incipient tuberculosis. When the ton- sils of these children were removed there, was complete recovery." "After the removal of the. tonsils a pathological examination .is necessary to uncover any disease. The tonsils are veritable germ breeders." Dr. Barton Haseltine, secretary of the expressed his approv- al of this indictment on tonsils. Dr. Haseltine said that medical men have been unable to find a reason for the existence of tonsils .and have decided that they are 'vestigal organs like the appendix, of a lower form of life." STARTED POOR BUT DIED WORTH MILLIONS London, May John Banks, who has died at Folkstone, at the age of 86, was a remarkable man. Starting life as quite a poor lad, at his death he was reputed to be worth Professionally he was an estate agent and auctioneer. He was a member of the town council and was Mayor six times. He was proud of his municipal career, and once offer- ed toward a new Baptist church and a new bonnet for the pastor's wife if anybody had a record' equall- ing his. A similar record was found and Mr. Banks paid like a good sports LIFE IMPRISONMENT Madison, May a dissenting vote the Assembly today concurred in the Senate bill fixing he penalty for kidnapping at life imprisonment (From Hansard.) To provide for an inquiry into wa- ter rights on the St. Mary's and Milk Mr. Foster. What is the difficulty with reference to that? Mr. Oliver. The difficulty there is that the St. Mary's river rises in the United States and flows into Canada. In the lower part of its course the water has been diverted by u Cana- dian enterprise and is used for irriga- tion over a very considerable area of country. The Milk River rises not 'far from the St. Mary's, flows into Canada and out of Canada again and finally enters the Missouri. On the lower part of the Milk River in the United States a considerable area of country is irrigated .from its waters. 17 The Milk 'River, however, is a very small stream, not having a perman- ent flow. Besides the St. Mary's rises in a large lake on the American side, called St. Mary's Lake, It is pos- sible to use this lake as a reservoir to store up water and thereby in- crease the flow of the river out of the lake. There is much more land cap- able of irrigation on the Milk river than there is water in the Milk river to irrigate with. The idea has struck the Reclamation Commission in the United States thai; it would be well to make a storage reservoir of St. Mary's lake and divert the St. Mary's river into the Milk River so that there would be an abundance of water for the irrigation of land on the Milk ri- vtr, leaving the irrigable lands along the St. Mary's river of course with- out water. Mr. J. A. Currie. On the Canadian side? Mr, Oliver. On the Canadian side. In the exercise of the right of divert- ing the water of St. Mary's river on their own side of the line to the Milk river, the authorities of the United. States would be ignoring any claim that Canada might have to the use of these waters as they would naturally flow down the St. Mary's river. But having- diverted the waters of the St. Mary's river to the Milk River and the Milk river afterwards entering Canada, Canada by the same rule would have exactly the same liberty diverted waters and to use them on1 the irrigable lands of .Canada, and as a matter of fact there is a canal now dug to do that. Under these circum- stances, it has seemed best to the Unit- ed States (Reclamation Service to cozae to some amicable agreement with the Canadian authorities ior a diversion of the water of these two streams, forming the boundary. The boundary waters come under the treaty and subsequently under the commission by virtue of the treaty. But does the minister contend that i a river that rises iu Canada, for in- both of which rise on 'the United StanCG' and into the Unikd S'aes States side, both of which derive their strajSht across the boundary also water from the .United States, but! comes under the comission? Of ourse both of which come into Canada, one international interests arc at stake remaining in Canada and the other (in such rivers, but a different kind afterwards entering Hhe United States 'from those in the boundary waters.

Mr. Wright. There was a vote last year and this smaller vote [this year. How long is it expected will continue this work, if you do come to an arrangement or an agreement withthe Unitel States? Mr. Oliver. Last year's work was preliminary and was carried on -before the boundary treaty was negotiated.

Mr. Foster. And would this em- power the commission to settle the matter, or will the government enter into an agreement with the govern- ment of the United States in regard to it? Mr. Oliver.

And, while my hon. friend says ry's and Milk rivers are made a part 'the commission has the power to take aa of the there is an article of an measures it seems to us that the rivtr the treaty dealing with these ques- interests of individual citizens of Ca- Falls? I think the minister deserves a good deal of credit for what he has done, more than do some of the other ministers. I think the matter should have been called to xheir attention, and that the case of Canada should have been presented in the matter of Niagara Falls and the Sault, just as well as in the case of St. Mary's tions- nada require protection, and as these Mr. J. A. Cume. Is it not a fact j come especially .within the view of that the commission has already dealt i the department of the Interior, which with them in the report they have gi- is responsible for the administration ven, and that they have had engineers of the lands affected by this water, examining into the matter? I think it is desirable that the case of Cana- the .minister is right when he says da and the. protection of the rights that there is a clause in the treaty that refers distinctly to the St. Mary's and Milk rivers. But what I do not understand is why, when there is a of its citizens should be placed as fairly as possible before the comis- sion to the end that the interests o1 those individual citizens should be will be a commission nominated by J commission is voted large sums of mo- both countries who will decide any ney for these purposes by the govern- question arising. This money is asked j ment. Why should there be a spe- for the purpose of preparing the Can- cial vote in this case and not a spe- adian case for submission to a com- cial vote to help the investigation, for mission. instance, in the case of the Niagara Mr. Foster. Is the St. Mary's river j or the Sault? The commission have a boundary fuu power- to consider these matters, Mr. Oliver. No. and they have their staff of engineers Mr. Foster. Then how does it come in under this treaty? Mr. Oliver. The river rises on the UniYed States side and comes into Canada, and, inasmuch as it crosses the boundary, it affects the boundary and is a boundary water. Mr. Foster. It does not seem to me that that would follow. As I securinc a fair treaty, Dr. Kine J i c v I vote dealing with the waterways com- j as fully protected ast possible. Of mission, there should be another vote" here. This matter is entirely in charge of that commission. -That on this work. Therefore, I cannot understand the' reason for the spe- cial vote in one instance only. Mr. Oliver. I tried to explain that the vote1 last ye'ar was to secure in- course, the Department of the Inter- ior is not responsible with regard to the Sault or to Niagara. .Mr. J. A. Currie. I think the Min- ister of the Interior (Mr. Oliver) did what was right. He lives in the sec- tion and, having knowledge of the conditions, took the precaution in relation to the Milk Kiver and St. Mary's River properly prepared out- side the commission. But the question arises why was not a similar course pursued in the case of Canada's rights at the Sault, where there is a division of water and also at Niagara Falls, where there is a considerable friction over the way this Waterways .Comission have decided stand it, the waterways mattei is bas- ed on the -idea of boundary waters, distinct from waters which arise in one country and pass into another not formation that would enable question involved? The people to place her case properly with a view of Ontario think it is a case of heads I win at one end of the province and tails you lose at the other end. Why is there not a vote for the division of the waters at the Sault, and a vote to and Mr. Anderson went up and ex- amined the grounds in conjunction with some of the reclamation surveys CREMATION OF HINDU x Body of Dead Man Placed on Wood Pile and Ceremony of the United States. The treaty hav- secure a proper division at Niagara Cranbrook, -B. C., May morning an Hindu died in St. Eugene Hospital of lung trouble. It seems that Sheai Sangha, the. dead Hindu, was employed by the Standard Lum- ber company whose mill is situated about miles north of Cranbrook. At 12 noon today the body was con- veyed by, W. E. Beatty, the undertak- er, to one of the Standard Lumber company's .mill where a large pile of wood had been arranged. A box con- taming the body was placed on the pile and a match did the rest. Pres- ently the box fell to pieces, and the body could be seen, the flesh dropp- ing from the bones until all that were [eft were the necessary bones of the hands, feet, ribs .and head, which will be sent back to India and thrown into the Ganges. There ware automo- jfles, rigs and saddle horses "around .he pile and many citizens witnessed the ceremony. The clothes of the dead man were also burned. This is the first time that a gov- ernment agent has been asked and granted, a permit to cremate the body" Only four of the dead man's country- men were present. WAR IS DECLARED! On the J. BROWN CO.
