London, April li.—Tin* fourth colonial conference, which will ussemblw
here April la, promises Io be tin*
most Important yet held, ulthou.ji
lhc absence of Joseph Chamberlain
the ex-colonial secretary, wlio.se imperialistic enlhusiiism gave the movement its greatest impetus, and his
personal antithesis, the bluff and picturesque Richard Sedtlon, the premier
of New Zealand, will be greatly felt.
Popular interest js enhanced hy tin*
participation of Dr. Jameson, the
Transvaal raider, who is now premier,
of Cape Colony, and General Louis
Dothii, premier of the reconstruct oil
Transvaal. Alfred Dcakin, Uie A us*
tr.ili.ili premier; Sir Joseph <L
Ward, premier of Sw Zealand; Frederick II. Moore, premier of Natal, and
Dr. Jameson have already arrived in
London. Sir Wilfrid Laurier, of
Canada, and Sir Robert Bond, of
Newfoundland, ami General Rotlm
are on their way.
Premier Botha embarked nt Cape
Town March 27, with the declarod
purpose of convincing (treat Britain
of the loyally of her Dutch siibjeolt*.
He will he Riven a hearty welcome
on bis arrival at Southampton.
The most important questions slated for discussion are a project pro-
\ idiot*- for a permanent council, pro-
fercntlal trade between the colonies
.ind Great Britain and among tlm
eoIonics themselves, imperial defense
schemes and emigration, with many
questions, like penny postage, the
totalization and patent laws.
Preferential trad-1 looms up as tlie
largest subject in the preliminary
talk While the colonists are auct
ions tn give the mother country advantages, Ihey chafe under the ' onesided nrrnngernents which yield them
no return. Premiers Laurier ami
Deakln have already gone on record
to this effect, and the tendency of
colonial opinion seems to he voiced
hy Hie following resolution which
Premier Jameson proposes to introduce:
"This conference, while adhering to
the principle nf preferential treatment for products and manufactures
of the [fir-tied Kingdom, desires to
Impress upon his majesty's government the opinion that the continuance of such preferential Ire-atmeM*
to British proilucers and manufacturer*; is largely dependent upon .bo
(-ranting of some reciprocal privileges
to British colonies."
Thi*. means a step away from the
free Irade, and the government appears anxious to evade that dilemma .
The next thorny question is that of
Imperial defense. The inherent dif-
licultv of the problem will be to
draw llie distinction lietween Great
Hrif".in\ position as a European
power and as the mother country of
n ureal colonial empire. Thus (Treat",
Britain could not expect the colonies
to hind themselves fo assist her In
.nil European war in which thev
were not concerned, though any col-
onv could emu roi I Great Britain in
u-.it without Incurring any hut the
moral obH-gaHnn to come to her assistance. The idea is to endeavor,
if possible, in arrive nt some agreement or alliance insuring consultation and co-operation in any conflict arisini- from causes outside nf
mirelv European polities, all parties
thereto contributim* men and money
for a common defense upon a population and revenue basis.
Dr. Jameson in-fends 1o propose a
plan Whereby contributions from
each eolonv should be eojhatly fixed on
the eondlllon that colonies be represented upon the imperial council at
which ipiestioiis concerning the peace
ol the empire shall be discussed.
Premier Ward, ot New Zealand, favors increasing the colonial naval
contributions. Australia is detcr-
lnlned to hrini* up the Asiatic exclusion uuestinn, and Premier Ward del-tared, on being Interviewed, that
New Zealand was against the admission or Chinese and Japanese, between whom and New Zenlanders ne
sees the Inevitable struggle for supremacy.
The premier said:
"We object to being bound by treaties, In which we have nn voice, to
admit Asiatics freely."
The government has reservrd 80
rooms in the Hotel Cecil for the entertainment of Mie premiers and theli.
st-ifls and families. The visitors

The following from the Chicago
Record-Herald ol April 5, elves the
results of the Chicago conference, and
Was  furnished  hy  Jos.   Jackson:
Through the mediation of Martin
A, Knapp, chairman of the iniersiaH*
commerce, commission, and Charles
P, Neill, rmied States commissioner
ol labor, _ settlement of the western
railroad controversy was effected yesterday.
The amicable uettlomeul ol the controversy by means oi government
mediation is highly gratifying to
President Roosevelt, as is indicated
by Uie following telegrams which
passed between the federal represente
atives ami Washington:
Chicago, 111., April l, 1007.—Pro-
sklent Roosevelt, Washington: Complete settlement effected, result highly satisfactory. A distlnui triumph
for government mediation,
Martin A.  Knapp,
Chairman Interstate Commerce Board
Charles P   Neill,
Commissioner ol Labor.
The President's reply;
lion. Martin A. Knapp, chairman
Interstate Commerce Commission,
Hon. Charles P. Neill. Commissioner
of Labor, Chicago, ill.—Am greatly
pleased and heartily congratulate you
Theodore  Roosevelt.-
A compromise was agreed to by
both sides, and to-day the labor
chiefs will meet the general managers ami sign the new schedule, The
terms of agreement provide for a
material advance in wages to the
employees over what was originally
offered by the managers. This advance will approximate $300,000 a
year, which, added lo the orlglnul increase offered by the railroads, will
add about $fitftnO,(B>0 a year lo the
pay rolls of the forty roads Involved,
lienetiting 50,000 employees. Both
stiles to the controversy yielded to
the urgent appeals of llie federal
mediators and made concessions in
the interests of peace anil the welfare
of the general public. The greatest
concession made hy the employees
was the waiving of tlie nine-hour
In consideration of ibis the general
managers agreed to grant a furl her
advance in wages to the brnkemen,
baggagemen and flagmen in passenger
service uud an increase of 10 per cunt
to employees on work trains who
are now operating under a ten-hour
schedule. The men ou worla 1 rains
now operating on a twelve-hodr
schedule are to he placed on a
schedule of ten hours a day without
ii reduction in wages.
In ihe final offer of Ihe general
managers before they appealed to the
government officials conductors ou
passenger trains were granted au increase of $10 a month, baggugemen
U< a month ami llagmcii and bralai-
im-ii $*. a month, Overtime at the
rale of ...I cents an hour ',.i conductors and 2b cents an hour for
other employees was offered. Employees on work trains were given
•io increase in wages.
By the terms of the settlement effected yesterday baggagemen on passenger trains will receive an advance
of 17.50 a month and hraketnen and
ll.igmen $6.50 a month, with over-
lime at the rale of 28 cents an hour.
This increase averages in per cent,
hut on some of the roads it •amounts
to a lion i 12 per cent to the hrakemen
and flagmen. The scale for passenger conductors, averaging about 8
per cent, remains the same a.s originally offered by the managers.
All classes of workmen in through
and irregular freight train service an*
granted a flat increase of Id per cent
over the rates now in effect. In addition to the wage increase the conditions of employment nn many of
the roads are materially improved.
The demand of the men in yard service in Denver and other western
points for a differential of 2 cents an
hour over the Chicago scale is referred without prejudice hack to the
separate roads to he adjusted between
each road and its own employees.
The railroads agree not to reduce
the number of crews or increase the
tonnage of trains so as to offset the
increase In wages granted the employees.
"We are satisfied that we have
secured Ihe best settlement possible
without a strike," said P. II. Morrissey, grand master of ihe Brotherhood ot Railroad Trainmen, last'
night. "That does not mean thai
we are contented, as we still believe
our original demands were reasonable. At no tine were wo unmindful
of the great public interests involved. Our policy has always heen to
drive the best bargain possible without resorting to extreme measures or
relying on outside arbitration.
"The railroads and their employees
know their own affairs hest. For
lhat reason we accepted less than wa
asked for rather than submit to
arbitration. The credit for a peaceful adjustment of our -differences is
lue largely to Mr. Neill, who suggested the concessions tn he made bv
■Ifot-ti sides and conducted the negotiations in n masterly woy."
Some of the more radical members
of the general committee declared
that the employees had yielded too
much, but the dissatisfaction among
■i hem was not pronounced. Thev
re glad that the controversy is ended so that tbey can return to work,
as many of them have been oft the
trains since early in January.
The agreement' wns brought about
without the general managers und
the labor chiefs meeting in conference. After discussing ihe whole
subject with both sides Mr. Neill and
Mr. Knapp drew up tlie compromise
agreement,'and the latter laid it before the labor delegates in person
Wednesday afternoon. He urged
them to accept the proposition    and

told them that he believed the managers would do the same. On Wed
nesday evening the government
ficlals held a conference with the
malingers and paved the way for
lhc acceptance of the modified demands of i tu* employees.
Yesterday morning the labor chiefs
sent a communication to the government officials giving the terms which
ihey would accept. This was communicated to the general managers,

general managers' commit tee

In acknowledging the receipt of
the acceptance from the general
malingers the federal mediators replied in part: "This favorable ie-

which we recommended iis ttw to the
ui-gnnlzntions and necessary to a
friendly adjustment ol tlie dispute,
ami for which we assume full responsibility, indicates a sincere desire on the part of the railroads to

our appeal has not merely been
gratifying beyond measure to us, hm

and for their leaders ami representatives an increase in that public confidence and respect that you have al-

In speaking of tbe settlement Tor
the railroads, S tti son Thompson said
last night that the peaceful adjustment of the difficulty was due to the
provisions of the Erdiiuiiu law ami
to the tncl and diplomacy shown by
dr. Knapp and Mr. Neill in handling

with which Ibe railroads were ever
Ottawa, Apili 2.—The (fillet ol
Easier Uue was quickly disturbed
wui-ii the house resumed this afternoon. Less iliun a week ago tbe
cii'iicricioii Gleaner puiilisheu cerium,
statements relh'cling upon the private cuaraiier of the minister of railways uud canals. When these were
put into the tangible form of newspaper statement there was no oilier
alternative ihuu for lion. Mr. Emim-i-
son lo vindicate bis character in the
courts, and ou Sunday night it was
Ultima tod that he would lake lirst opportunity lo do SO. He has now
entered action for libel, not uni'
against the Gleaner, but against tii**
I'uioiito World and tin* Halifax Herald, which bad published the Gleaner's statements. Hut iu order to
leave himself free the minister bus
tell it incumbent ou hiui lo resign
ihe portfolio of railways and canals,
His resignation has been handed iu
and has been accepted.
When the house opened it was al
once apparent that Mr. Emiiicrson
iiad taken a decisive step. He had
moved away from his customary
ministerial seat, and was occupying
that which Mr. Sift on uses when he
is here. Sir Wilfrid Laurier mada
the announcement of the resignation
by reading the correspondence which
had taken   place. Mr. Emmersoti
(lien spoke for half au hour with
great vigor, denouncing his traducers
and stating that he would leave no
stone unturued to vindicate his character. He spoke al first amidst absolute silence, but later on his vigorous denunciations drew forth sympathetic applause from his fellow-
Liberals, and once, when Mr. Km-
merson remarked that all his enemies
were not upon tbe opposition side,
several Conservatives ejaculated,
"Hear, hear."
The resignation of a minister of thu
crown on such peculiar, not to say
extraordinary, circumstances, is unique in Canadian history. .Mr. Em*
merson promises to push the legal
proceedings for all he is worth, ami
if he vindicates himself, as he emphatically declares he will, doubtless
he-will return to the charge of the
department which he has iust vacated. It is significant as showing the
sympathy which is felt for him' that
this afternoon, he received a telegram
from Fredericton, signed by Premier
Pogsley, Hie leader of the opposition
md twenty other memliers of the
New Brunswick legislature, expressing their sympathy with him and telling him that he had their confidence.

Now ask yourself how much justice

Tlie farmer should have some sympathy wilh his fellow men. We know

has an nilvanlnge over us. He can
sow again, Iml unci* our crop uf Umber is swept away by lln.nl or fire,
ii is gone forever, and .we shall not
live tn raise another crop.
A   farmer  may  sell nne crop at     a
li---*- and still survive, because      the
uexl  may be belter, bin   we can have
"o next crop.
If we sell  lhc whole nf our     one

e-led hy mill owners,     ll   is      the
uisiiiCSS   of   true   statesmen   nnt       In

The investment of capital must  be
e-.v.irded.  the natural growth.      the

iiu-ils    upon il, even statesmen     of
mall caliber can understand il. ami
1   is   iheir  duty   to protect   the  pro-
liner us well as the consumer,
The farmer being a producer should
n   some     measure   reciprocate   tin
sytnpnthy  we show for him,  his  in
lcrests are  identical  with  ours      ii
many  ways,  and   it   is  to our  inter
■sis thai  the  consumer  should     he
implied with lumber at a  reasonable

vhleh    will    tend tu Ihe development

"f   IIS;
That cases of extortion exisl evid-
t.ce amimlnntly  proves.
Kvideuce also proves that mill

There is mi reason why the prole-cr ami consumer should not be

In a district in the Slocan country
where, so far, uo rich strikes    have
heel, made, F. s. Griffith, o( Slocan
City,, has made a discovery which  is
iiprcccdcuied.     He has ore, assayed
ore, which runs over 2000 ounces in
liver,   besides  iis    lead   and    /.inu
The    property   is   the   Westmont
roup which is s-iliutisl on Ten Mile
l'reek,   about one    mile   and a ball
above Slocan lake.     There ale     no
lUior properties ot note In the   Immediate vicinity    with the exception
I tlie Enterprise.    Associated in tho
wiiciship    of the property are   .Ur.
Urillith and also P. W. Ellis, ol T'o-
tonto,    the   well   knuwa    jeweller.
Eleven years ago ore was discovered
in an outcropping uu the ground covered by tbe Westnionl group,    suniu
1 which   gave (airly high     values.
Some surface work   lower down   the
hillside showed the ledge to be    ap-
latently permanent.     It varied Irom
eight    (eet   lo    eighteen Inches    lu
width.     Uul there was little use in
such a discovery unless it could    be
shown    to   be existent    at depth.
Therefore, after having guaged     Uie
dip and strike oi the ore by work on
Ihe   upper levels,    Mr. Griffith proceeded to locate tht ore at depth hy
driving a tunnel to crosscut the vein
at a depth nf SOO leet.     It was     a
large undertaking as the crosscut had
to be driven a   distance of over     a
thousand feet.
Now the faith ol the owners in tlie
property, after   11 years work,   has
been justified.    The tunnel, driven to
distance ol   IIM    fni lion, fea

Out in the town of Gladstone,

usually comes from the inside, not
from the outaidc. Some director (nr
