WHERE DID MONEY 00ME FROM
The matter was brought     to tbe at
tention ot the house hy A. 0. Boyce
the member for    West Algoma.    Mr.
Boyce asked the     premier to anawt>r|
these questions,
"Was there any public subscription
list?   Was the sum not handed over1
In public?   Were    the names    ot the
subscribers made known to the min
ister of tinance and tbe premier?"   If
these names   were made known    Mr,
Boyce said he waa quite sure, in vlewl
of his   past    utterances on     similar
subjects,   Sir Wilfrid    Laurier would
not have the slightest objection    in|
giving the names to the public.   Mr
Boyce said the house should have the
names   of    the subscribers   and   the
amounts subscribed; that course was
due to Mr. Fielding, to the govern
ment, and to the house and country
Sir Wilfrid Laurier said It was   i
matter of notoriety that many of thei
public men who     had served Canada
were not always wealthy.    Sir John|
Macdonald was a     notable example.
Mr. Fielding, by reason of his attcn
tlon to the interests ot   the country
was not blessed    with an abundance
ot this world's goods.     The premlci
then declared    that   the     resolutior
which    Sir Richard Cartwrlght   liar
moved was brought about by the ac
ceptance by    Sir Hector     Langevin
minister of public works In the Con
servative administration,     of a gift
which so     palpably was contribute!
by the contractors   that the Conser
vative party   had no   other    optioi
than to accept   the resolution.     Si
Wilfrid said he had no criticism   t.
make ol the gilt    to Sir John Mar
donald, but it     might happen   tba
there were other men ln like circum
stances.     Mr. Fielding, like the deai
Conservative leader, had been so eo
grossed in public affairs as to maki
little provision lor   his family.    "1
there ls a man in    the house or on
of it who     ls above reproach, lt   V
William   Stevens Fielding,"   declared
the premier     amid   Liberal     cheers.
"No man has    a more delicate sense]
of honor."
',   The   premier then   asked    if   Mr
| Boyce thought that Mr. Fielding
would take a dollar that came Irom
a contractor or public official If he
thought so, then all he could say
was that Mr. Boyce did not know
Mr. Fielding.
I "What about those names." quer
ied Glen Campbell.
I Sir Wilfrid admitted that he ap
proved of the testimonial on thc
ground that nothing was too gooc'
lor Mr. Fielding. He approved of the
testimonial     because    he understood
lit was contributed only by men    in;
! private life, with no connection will
the government. Not a penny had
come from any other     source.     Sir
i Wilfrid said he would state tbat or
his honor as a man and on his re
sponsibility as prime minister o
Canada, that there was not a won1
of truth in    tbe published statement
! that tlie Bank of Montreal had sub
scribed 125,000. When he saw thi
statement in print he had taken th
j trouble to ascertain the facts, an'
he found it was Incorrect. Neither
he was advised, had the Domlnio'
Iron and Steel company contribute
in any way whatever. As to th
public curiosity, which Mr. Boyci
said had been aroused, the premie1
declared it seemed to exist only ii
the mind of Mr. Boyce.
Remit Presentation to Minister of
Finanift Disou«««d in House
Ottawa, May 3.-Where did the
money come from? That was the
question asked of Sir Wilfrid Laurier
In the house today, respecting the
gift    to    Mr.    Fielding ol (120,000.
SAW THK    COMKT.
Dr. Connolly and Rev. R. Hughe,
who have for some time past been or
the watch tor Mr. Halley, discovers
the comet on Monday morning las
at 3:40 Just as it was rising over thi
mountains, K. by N. F.. The observations were made through a power
ful telescope with a lorty magnltylni
i power, and marine binocular of th
[tweh'th power. The comet can nov
be seen with the naked eye, appealing somewhat like a star of tbe sec
ond or third magnitude, althougl
(niore blurred and Indistinct. Throng'
the glasses it appears as a bunch o
absorbent cotton with a taint stream
ilng tail attached. It la rising earlle

brilliant object in the evening sky
Those who wish to Bee this objec
I can do so by looking between th
second and third peak ol the rang,
north ot Mount Baker and abou'
half past three in the morning.
DISSOLVED    PARTNERSHIP
It was announced Monday that V
Rollins and George Hoggarth hai
dissolved partnership. This was i
great surprise to most all ot thi
friends of both parties.
"Vic" will be missed by the tr-av
ellng public, for he was one of th
most efficient as- well as one ol th
most* popular hotel men In the prov
Ince.
RULED BY THE UNITED  STATES-
Tt Is pointed out, says the St
John Standard, that the tariff sur
i"">r'er was n happy thought of Mr
Fielding calculated to relieve thi
Canadian consumer. Thc enrtom
feature ot this is that the interest!
of the Canadian consumer should be
f rclblv and imperatively brought to
the attention of Mr. Fielding by the
President of tbe United States.

All who knew     the King expected]
Ithat his death would be sudden

surprise  if   it had     occured without
(warning, the result of heart troubles
One of the last utterances attributed to King Edward was:
WELL,  IT'S  ALL OVER,  BUT  1
ITHINK I HAVE DONE MY DUTY.
He seemed then to have reached tt
full realization that   his end   wo*
ast approaching.
The Queen and others of the roya

'to them. Social functions were

Everywhere tlie effect of the Micy|
if the new King was discussed.
Pneumonia following bronchitis is
1'ielieved to have been the cause of
leath, but the doctors thus far have
■cfused to make a statement.
Some of the King's friends are|
■onvinced that worry over the criti
'al political situation which confron
:ed him, with sleepless nights, ag
[gravated, if it did not cause the
atal illness. Besides the nearest
elatlves in England the Duke of

that his illness had been concealed)
from public knowledge increased tht[
alarm.
King Edward suffered from a simi

knclemcnt weather and cold winds]
put it wns supposed that he had[
[completely recovered, especially
he attended the opera at Convent|
[Garden within three hours of bis ar
rival in London from Biarritz last|
Wednesday. On Thursday his majes
ty had a busy day. He gave an au
dieuce to Field Marshall Lord Kit

ited the Royal Academy. On Friday
pie also gave several audiences and
entertained Lord and Lady Gladstone

According to     the constitution    ofr ■--■

leath of a Mon hit h the heir Incomes
King. The second of time In which
King Edward VII., drew hts last
breath, George Frederick Ernest]
Albert, the eldest son of King Edward VII., became King of England.
And his     wife    Alexandra,     became
better.    But tihe sudden changes    in
the weather thlh week  were trying to
his majesty and finally compelled him
to keep within     doors.    He still    nt
tended  to  state    business,    however.
and     granted     audiences     including]
among others     on Tuesday, one    tOBgst     warshij

that his physicians were able to   In B700 feet long
jduco King Edward to keep to his
bedroom and  take a complete rest.
TllO bulletin Issued at. 7:30 this
evening showed that the eminent
specialist Sir Richard Douglas Powell bad been called in. He, witb the
King's physicians, Sir Francis Laking and Sir James Reid, authorised
[a bulletin which read: "The King
is suffering from an attack of bronchitis and has been confined to his
rooms for two days. His Majesty's
[condition causes some anxiety."
The King is fjj good spirits despite
[his illness and In addition to long
visits from members of the royal
family, he rerelved in audience this
morning Lord Islington, the newly
[appointed commander in chief of New
Zealand, and other colonial officials.
Both Hjr Francis Lakin and Sir
James Reid will remain in Buckingham palace throughout the night. It
is stated, however, tbat it Is merely
us a precautionary measure as the
King's illness is not grave. A consultation was held late tonight but
no bulletin was issued. A court circular, which was sent out at f
lock states that his majesty was
unable to meet the Queen ns he was
[suffering from a severe cold. The
Prince of Wales lins heen in constant
attendance for thc past two days
and this evening the Duchess of Ar
gyle was summoned to tbe palace.
The Duke and Duchess of Teck also
came, but all the visitors left Buck
'ngham palace before 11 o'clock and
according to the latest report the
King's condition at midnight was
more reassuring. Anxiety will con
Unite nevertheless, as it is known
that bis majesty is subject to serious
[fainting spells.
Every precaution -has been taken
Ito , provide against disturbing the
[patient. The   quadrangle    of    the
mlacc and the carriage approaches

LARGUST   BATTLESHIP
London, Mny 3.   Tlio   ki-cl of   thc
I'lnttlcship Princess Royal,   tho lorn
ol    nny navy     In Unlaid at Bari-ow-nn -Fur
hcHH yesterday.     Thfl vessel will linv.
^0,000 t(inn displacement and will he
My department will have the
"pending of four and a quarter millions, in round numbers, this year
the great bulk of the huge appropriation being for roads and bridges
To see that this money is spent
carefully, and with a view to ucr-
mnnent results, is now the object of
Uie department," said Hun. Thomas
Taylor, minister of public works for
the province, who was a visitor in
Nelson Tncsilay.
"My visit," said Mr. Taylor, ''Is in
connection witb the trunk ro. is
through the southern portion of liie
province When completed, It mil
intend from Vancouver, on the const
to the Crow's Nest, on the Allien a
boundary, a dintav.ee ot 750 mil.-..
Two-tuiiuti of it is now lu tixMtXt.i u,
some of it being old road, mil tin
greater portion, road that we o.r-
sclves have constructed. The remaining third will consist of a number of scattered links, ol greater or
less length. While my Information
Is not complete, I believe that the
cost of tbe present construction wlll
not be over a quarter of a million.
" The most difficult section is that
over tbe Hope mountains, and for
the ascent to the summit we have
decided to make use ot tbe old Suppers and miners road, which, as you
know, is a very Hue higbway. When
tbe descent on this side is made-, we
will connect with the existing rond
which goes clear through to Ross-
land. At Trail ii will be necessary
to construct a bridge across the Columbia. At or near Creston, on the
Crow, the Kooteuay river will also
have to bridged.
"In addition to giving access east
and west, I hope to see this trunk
road give the province access to the
states to the south, hy connecting at
the border with their trunk roads.
When I was recently at Tacoma, I
was Impressed witb the magnificent
state road, which I am Informed extends south clear into Oregon. Although I have not yet taken up the.
matter, I feel sure the governments
of the states to the south, Washington and Idaho, wilt be willing to cooperate in a system ot International
trunk roads. One great result
would be the springing up of a great
tourist automobile travel from those
states into British Columbia, and
the reverse. The government of Alberta is already co-operating, by a
trunk road in the soutb to connect
witb our trunk road, at the boundary In the Pass."
As to the early commencement of
railway construction, Mr. Taylor
said that William Mackenzie, president of the Canadian Northern railway company, was expected In Vlc-
taria in a few days, and doubtless
be would then make an announcement. In the case nt the Kettle
Uiver Valley company, tenders were
to have lieen in by April 15, and lis
had nut yet heard the result. In
both coses, the minister pointed out,
the companies are obligated, by the
terms uf their charters, to commence
actual construction within three

There wart a time when we thot :ht
Kootenay was chiefly valuable foi Its
scenery. Then we began to look upon
it as a place ol great potential nun
in* development. Now things look as
if we would have to give fruit the
first place, after a time. And
there is one thins about the fruit
The biggest mines can be exhausted
but the fertility of the fruit lands
can he renewed forever.- Victoria

The Calgary Herald, says: It is
had enough tor Canadians to be a
joke, but when it comes to being an
English Joke that's too much. "The
London Olobe says we are amusing."
A joke is a joke, hut it is pretty old
and stale when it comes from an
Englishman.

The Hindus want a vote. Well, let
them go east and vote where the
franchise is being indiscriminately
handed out to Doukhothors and others
British Columbia has no election ci
gars tor them, also no valid reason
to show why they should he permit
ted to vote.
Is there not a by-law stored away
somewhere In the municipal vaults
dealing with the matter of allowing
horne« to stand untied and imguard
ed on the streets of Cranbrook? Oi
allowing untagged dogs to run loose
in the city? If there is such a loea'
law It should be enforced.
Some years ago it was suggested
tbat King Kdward cross the herrim*-
pond and visit President Roosevelt.
This year "Teddy" Roosevelt wlll
visit King Edward in "Hold Hing

when the two "Teddies' meet.
Most fortunate is the boy or girl,
the young man or the young lady,
who is given the oppoertunity to attend school in our city. Its educational advantages surpass any city
of like sUe in the province.
The new electric power plant will
soon be in operation, running a twenty-four hour shift. Those who intend to install electric power should
get busy, and makt» application for
their motors.
Leading Hindus in tbis province
claim tbat as British subjects they
have the right to vote, and if necessary, will appeal to Ottawa, and the

FURNITURE
'; We are daily adding new lines to our immense stock of thoroughly dependable furniture. Our sales, so far this year, have exceeded our most sanguine expectations. We attribute this increase to our quality of goods and
the service this store affords. We sell goods at the lowest possible prices but
always consider quality before price.
CARPETS ano RUGS
We have just placed in stock three large shipments of Rugs-Canadian
and English-and we believe we now have the largest and most beautiful
range ever shown in the Kootenays. On account of our heavy buying we
were able to secure a large lot of small Rugs at a much less price than regular. These
are worth from $3.00 to $3.50 each but we are going to place thenfon sale Saturday at
$2.50 each.   This is a snap
We can now make up special size Rugs "while you wait."   We have one ot the latest
carpet machines which does much better work than can be done by hand.
Big shipment of English Linoleums just came to hand.   Price per running yard
$1.00 to $3.00

CURTAINS
Before buying please examine our stock of Lace Curtains, we have them from 65c
to $6.50 per pair. We also stock a big line of Tapestry Curtains, and Curtain Cloths at a

order-in-council has been passed. The
debate continued as follows:
Mr. H. L. Uorden. Suppose a Canadian ship meets a ship of similar
armament and power belonging to an
enemy, meet her on the high seas,
what is she to do? I do not say if
she is attacked, but will she attack,
will she tight?
Sir Wilfrid Laurier. I do not
know that sne would tight, I do not
ttnow that she would not tight either
She should not tight until the government by which she is commissioned have determined whether she
should go into the war. That is the
position we take, my Hon. friend
tatoes a different position. He says
without any question, under all cir-
cumstancos, we are bound to send
our ships into the war. We take a
different position, and we say: Let
the coitntrv judge between us.
Mr, It. L. Borden. Would our
ports and harbors be neutral like our
fleet until an order-In council had
been   pawned?
Sir Wilfrid Laurier. I do not under Miind what, my lion, friend menus
hy asking if they should  be neutral.
Mi. It. L Borden. I understand
the Prime Minister to Hay Mint our
shlpfl should not. light, until tbey were
ordered to do so, and, therefore,
they would In eflect. be neutral until
the Governor lu Council had made
an order thai they should participate
in the war. Have I misstated my
Hon. friends position?
Sir Wilfrid  Laurier.     No.

Fighting for the Franchise Grabber
Ottawa, April 30.—Mr. Conmoos
repeated efforts to grab water power
have been notorious. The other day
by derperate efforts the conservatives
succeeded in killing one of the worst
of his hills, the Lake Superior and
Lake Winnipeg "canal" scheme.
Talking afterwards to a newspaper,
he explained that the conservatives
had worked a game on him. The
"whips" told him that everything
was all right so he called a vote on
the measure. The whips were not as
sharp as they should have been, however, and the result of the division
was fatal.
Thc point that is interesting about
tbis is Mr. Conmoos admission that
the government whips were fighting
for this intensely objectionable private bill. The Laurier government
thus stands forth as the confessed
agent of predatory private corporations trying to grab public franchises
The St. Lawrence Power Transmission bill was another case of the
same sort.
