C. P. R. and G. N. to Have Union Depot
at Qrand Forks���Work Begun
on Little Bertha.
(Speelal to Tbe Dally Canadian.)
Grand Forks, May 20.���While nothing
is slated officially, It ia generally understood that the Ureat Northern railway
is niuking arrangements with the Kettle Valley Line railway for the use of
lhe track belonging to the latter company which runB through the city, so
that all Oreat Northern passenger trains
will leave the Union depot, to be erected
on Third street. In order to do this tho
Oreat Northern passenger train could
reach the Kettle Valley line track at the
"Y" on the Cotloper Bros." ranch, some
two miles souih of the city, lt is also
understood tbat the C. P. It will use
tho Union Depot for iheir passenger
trains. The work of bullaBtlng the Kettle Valley line track through the city Ib
now being done and lt Ib Intimated that
work on the Union Depot will be started
this month; this depot will be erected
on Third street and will cost $4,000, and
Will very likely be used by the three
railways for tbelr passenger tralna,
while the respecUve freight depots will
remain at tholr old locutions.
An unofficial report hns reached hore
tuday to the effect gun work on the
construction of tho Midway & Vernon
railway will be resumed at once. The
resumption of work on this railway Is
reported to bo due to thc fact of the
recent cash subsidy granted by the federal government of 13,200 per mile for
the full distance of 150 miles from Midway to Vernon. It la also claimed that
arrangements arc being made to poy off
all outstanding indebtedness due contractors and men for a portion of thc
conBt ruction which aggregates many
thousands of dollars.

French Socialists Preach
"Leap, ai Social Defence" Formed
by Conservatives to "Save
the Republic."
Parts, May 20.���The spirit of revolution ls In the air. A grave sign of the
times is the Btep taken by the Radicals
to separate themselves trom Socialiet
influencea. Their leaders say that such
a step haB become Imperative, for the
doctrines spread abroad are destructive,
not only to tbe national interests, but
u( civilization itself. Events have
marched quickly since Waldeck-RouB-
seau included the -Socialist Millerand in
His ministry. .Millerand may now be
considered a react ionary compared wltb
meu like Herve und the chiefs of the
labor federation. The spirit of revolt
Is so prevalent that two prefects this
last week buve been openly convicted
of advocacy of the red flag and the "Internationale."
To be effective, to meet the situation,
to "save the republic," (for the question has got lo that point, sayB the
"Temps"), a readjustment ot parties Ib
necessary. It la -recognized that the
centre and the right have the role to
play, and It remains for the Radicals to
tall Into line.
The great peril ia tbe Labor Federation, aided and abetted by H. Herve, tbe
apostle ot anti-militarism. Tbe object
la to deBtroy society as at present existing, atad all means are to be employed
to that end. The law of IBM legalising trades unions did not contemplate
lbe grouping together of corporations
The Federation on that account is an
unlawful organization, but it la so
strong lhat tt la allowed Impunity. All
the labor exchanges (Bourses du Travail) throughout the country receiving
subsidies from the departments and the
municipalities are affiliated with tbe
Federation, thus placing enormous power In the hands of the central committee. The four great chiefs are Citizens Grlffuelhea, Yvctot, Pouges and
Levy. Their organ is tho "Volx du
The charges agalnat Yvctot, arrested
at Nantes by order of M. Clemenceau,
Includes incitements to set lire to the
county niunsiisns, to destroy machinery,
to put the country to pillage and to
throw trains off the rails. He said: "If
the bourgeois are killed, so much the
bettor! lf they are half-killed, finish
them off with your bludgeons."
Among the poople who have got it
into tbelr beads that the country Is moving towards revolution Is M. Leandrl,
well known In Parisian Boclety, wbo is
organizing a league of social defence.
M. Leandrl proposes to Isbuc placards
setting forUi the alms of the league.
The appeal will be addressed to all parties. The Idea Ib to create ln Pnrls
and tbe provinces what M. Leandrl calls
centres of resistance and combat. Each
ward will have its antl-revolutlonnry
section, consisting of resolute men with
strong arms and valiant henrts. "We
shall take our place ln the fighting
line," addB M. Leandrl, "aa near aB possible to the ragtag and bob-tall who
boast that they havo no country. They
desire civil war. Well, we shall see
how tho rascals will stand up before
honest men, whose patience ihey have
tried too long." ln olher words, lt Is
proposed that violence shall be met
with violence. Thc new league will
have a weekly paper called "Ln Den-
foiiBe Soclalo." The first number will
appear shortly.

off Cupe Race on Saturday, abandoned
the vessel laat night. Her bottom has
been broken by pounding on the rocks.
The Morena U a total wreck.

Ottawa, May 20.���Political comment
at the capital is about evenly divided
between the (allure of tbe Imperial Conference and the exposures of the last
It does not appear that Sir Wilfrid
Laurler as a member of the Colonial
Conference has advanced in the least
degree any of the projects and policies
which he prof-esses to advocate ln Canada. -Representative! of Australia, New
Zealand and Cape Colony came out
strong for preferential trade throughout the Empire, But Sir Wilfrid's chief
colonial ally ln all matters of Imperial
Interest waa Premier Botha of the
Transvaal, late commander ot the Boer
forces. It la said that this gentleman
divided wltb Sir Wilfrid the honors Oi
the occasion. Sir Wilfrid once said
that he would bave shouldered his musket on the aide of the rebellion lf he had
been a dweller In the West, and as General Botha was In arms against the British government tbey naturally have
some feelings in common. It li fair to
General Botha, however, to say that he
was not a British subject when he was
fighting British and Canadian troops.
The nominal minister of public works
is deaeribed aa a nervous wreck. But
he will soon have the -editors of government organs aa much a nervous wreck
as he Ib. After tbree alleged attempts
Mr. Hyman has got himself out of parliament, but the government which was
in a great hurry to call on the by-election in the middle of the winter, is now
ln no hurry at all. Mr. Hyman a few
months ago desired to be a candidate.
He wrote to his friends ln London to
have everything ready. Now there ls
a change of programme and Mr. Hyman,
who once started for Canada, turned
back at the frontier. Some say he is
going to England, and one report had
him already on tbe otber side of the Atlantic. Some Bay he is off for Japan.
Others insist that he li still ln California. Meanwhile Mr. Fisher has been acting for Mr. Hyman as minister of public works. Now he too has gone and the
job ls farmed out to Mr. Aylesworth.
As the time drew near for the trial
of the London election conspiracy there
were evident signs of anxiety. The accused Liberal government organisers
have been trying to have the case removed from Toronto, where the indictment was laid, to the city of London.
They appear to think that public opinion ln Toronto Ib rather hostile. Yet lt
Is In Toronto that the chief organ ot
tbe government Is printed. There ls another government paper ln the city. The
Judge who will probably try the case Is
an appointee of the Laurler government. The prisoners will be defended
by the ablest counsel that Liberal campaign fundi can procure. They should
be content with Toronto. For the present, however, there Is respite. The case
has been postponed to autumn In order
that "Ilug-Ihe-Miichlne" Preston may
give evidence. This gentleman could
well have been on hand now, as he has
been removed trom his late Job, and
has not begun bis new duties. Hut Mr.
Preston was always exclusive.
Mr. Fielding, explaining the Iron and
steel bounties, which he Increased and
continued, argued that the larger part
ot the $8,000,000 In the hut nine years
came back to the treasury through customs and other taxes. He showed that
the revenues greatly Increased In the
Iron and steel towns and ports, and
this increase he attributes to the
growth of manufactories under bounty
encouragement. It Is familiar protection argument but strongly condemns
Mr. Fielding's financial statements. Few
people know that Mr. Fielding's statements of current public expenditure do
not Include bounty payments. Mr.
Fielding's defence of this suppression
ls that tho bounty is extraordinary expenditure. So ho charges lt to capital
as though the government were buying
a railroad or some other asset, while he.
admits that the late government
charged this expenditure as regular our
rent outlay.
Now Mr. Fielding contends thnt he is
getting back Into the treasury through
the customs and excise departments
about all he  pays  In bounties.     He
claims these proceeds as regular revenue, while refusing to charge the bounties as regular expenditure, it is a
"heads I win, tails you lose" programme,
and has added a bogus $8,000,000 to the
alleged surpluses.
Railway Companiea Unanimously Deny
Recognition to Union.
London, May 20.���The railway companies are firm In their refusal to recognize the railway-men's union, the
Amalgamated Society of Railway Servants. Sixty-two companies have Informed the society that they cannot "allow a third party" to Interfere between
them and their employees.
Thirty-even joint companies have referred the society to the reply ot the
parent companies. Nine have merely

Another conference of delegates from
the men's unions has been called to decide what further action shall be taken
In pressing their demands, which would
cost the companies $37,000,000 annually
to carry out. The society ls certain to
receive an almost unanimous mandate
from the members tp order a strike,

Sir  Hiram  Maxim  Daclans Brennan'i
Invention Impracticable���Mere
Scientific Toy.
London, May lit.���Sir Hiram Maxim
sees no practical value in Louis Bren-
nan's monorail railroad system, which
the Inventor explained to the Royal
Society on Wednesday evening. Like
everybody else, Sir Hiram admits that
Mr. Urennan has perfected a charming
and highly scientific toy, using the idea
of the spinning top to balance hia cars,
but he does not believe it practicable to
construct and operate a railway according to Mr. Brennan'B plana. The Inventor himself may think ne has discovered by a use for the gyroscope that
will revolutionise railroad construction,
but that ls not Sir Hiram's opinion, and
no scientific man expects that a gyroscope railway will ever be constructed
for commercial purposes.
Sir Hiram speaks with authority on
the gyroscope. Lord Kelvin recently
aaid that Sir Hiram was one of only
three men in the world who really understood IL His authoritative view ot
the Brennan system was set forth yesterday afternoon for publication in The
"Mr. Brennan'B proposal to construct
a monorail system," aald Sir Hiram,
"differs from other such systems in that
the rail Ib placed below the centre of
gravity instead of above lt. I think his
plan to keep the carriage trom tipping
by the action of the gyros-cope will be
beset with a great many difficult problems, so difficult, ln fact, as to make the
whole scheme absolutely Impracticable.
It Ib quite safe to say that tf Mr. Bren-
nan's train was running east or west,
and there waB a strong wind from the
north, the wind would exert considerable force on the train ln the same direction, and I think under those conditions tbe plane of the gyroscope would
gradually yield, oapslslng the train.
"Nothing ln the world is so much of
a mechanical paradox as the gyroe-cope.
Perhaps I can best Illustrate gyroscopic
action by recalling the construction 30
years ago by Sir Henry Bessemer of a
ship to take passengers across tne British channel, which he propoeed to keep
In a horizontal position by the uie of
large gyroscopei. Sir Henry had
thought of the gyroscope the same ai
other engineer!, but there was one engineer and mathematician of that time
who really understood the gyroicope.
That waa Professor MacFnrland Grey,
who wrote tn the scientific press that
the gyroscopes tn Sir Henry's ships
would not work. He was attacked tor
this by a large number of engineers.
However, when the ship was tried lt
behaved Just as Professor Orey predicted. The gyroscope had no effect at all
in steadying the craft, and as the gyroscope failed to meet Sir Henry's expectations so. without doubt, will It fall
to meet Mr. Brennan'B lf he ever undertakes to steady a full-Blsed -car on a
monorail road.'*
Sir William White, lately chief constructor of the British navy .says: "Mr.
Brennan bas undoubtedly very Ingeniously solved the question of making a
truck stand upon one rail. His original
Idea was to provide an Improved
means "of transport tor tbe army In time
of war, ns the trouble and cost ot laying one rail would be much smaller than
two. Brennnn had solved the problem
of how to make a long truck travel on
one rail up and down steep gradients , around sharp curves and at great
speed. Whether a new Invention ts going to revolutionise railway traction ls a
matter for railway engineers to decide."

British   Government So  Described   by
Tory Member.
London, May 20.���Continuing the
tariff reform debate In the house of commons today, Mr. Chiosaa Money, Uberal, deprecated a colonial preference
on the ground that lt would prevent a
union of all British speaking nations of
the world.
Mr. Ramsay MacDonald expressed on
behalf of the Labor party, profound dissatisfaction with the budget, bnt declined to admit the title of the colonies to
dictate the British economic position.
Mr. Balfour thought a colonial preference a most valuable means of binding the -colonies together. If there were
difficulties ln the way It was for statesmen to surmount them. It would be
criminal to neglect the preaent opportunity.
Mr. Aaquith crttlied the attitude of
Mr. Balfour, who he said had repudiated
protection and denounced free trade.
He denied having reached the limits ot
possible taxation, and aaid that after
the preference debate In the Imperial
conference, the representatives ot the
Home government and the premiers
rose better friends than when they aat
Mr. Rowland Hunt said the government was ao permeated by old-faah-
loned blind-eyed Cobdeniim that If they
got their deserti they would go down
to posterity as the ministry of Inexactitude!, lawyers and second-class parish
Bonar Law said the budget contained
an admission that the British fiscal
system was on the verge of bankruptcy.
Mr. Asquith brought the colonists here
to give them admonition and advice.
Did he think they needed lt?
Mr. Asquith: " lthink they gave ua
quite aa much ai we gave them."

Yesterday morning OUf contemporary,
ln an outburst of editorial indignation,
accused The Ually Canadian of deliberate  misrepresentation in printing the
Such a charge Is not very coiiiplliin u-
tary to the party making It Like The
Dally News we are at the mercy of our
Oitawa correspondents for the facts.
Our Ottawa correspondents gave us the
story aB we printed It. The Dally News
denies It���on what authority we don't
know. Hut such denial doesn't constitute disproof.
It Is worth noting that the angry denial of our contemporary Is bused wholly on what it claims to me a nils quotation from Mr. Justice Hurbldge's finding. The actual words are immaterial.
They were so quoted to us. The Dully
Ni wa says the quotation ls Inaccurate.
Verbal accuracy is not of overwhelming
Importance, ��o long" us the substance
of the judgment is given, and that our
���contemporary does not deny. Neither
U U denied that the story of the Blair
more steal is substantially correct.
In fact The Daily News' indltfnunt denial amounts to no more than the pro-
fgfj pf a thief accused of stealing at
midnight, wht> should protest that it was
only 11:30 p. m. when be stole. There
is no more point In the one case than
in the other.
The charge of wilful misrepresentation is wholly gratuitous. It was not required by the circumstances of the
case, except to conceal the fact tbat the
story of fraud and the government's
connivance in it could not be denied.
We have always tried to act on the
assumption that our contemporary Is
honest according to its lights, and no
appearance to the contrary has provoked us to a charge of wilful misrepresentation.
Thursday of last woek our contemporary published In Its news columns a despatch from Ottawa beglnulug:
"A government thut hus been in power for 11 years, uud is stronger In Its
personnel and more deeply rooted in
the confidence of the public after the
expiration of such u term, must have
gained Its enviable position by an unbroken ll��e of pledges faithfully kept."
Every Libera) who knows the history
of his party for tho lUHl- twelve yeurs
known that two statements In that paragraph are absolutely untrue.
We gave our contemporary the bene*
fit uf the doubt, and made no charge of
wilful misrepresentation.
Another Instance, one thut is still re*
membered in Nelson and Kaslo, was the
insertion of words ln C. H. Monitor's
telegram: "MacKay in the north. Wires
down. Cannot communicate." The
Dally News Inserted, "that he", making
it read: "W'ireB down that he caunot
Although there was every appearance
of wilful distortion, and although the
only alternative explanation was Stupid*
Jty so gross as to be almoBt Incredible,
we gave the benefit of the doubt and
made no charge of dishonesty or malice.
The paper that haB been guilty of
such things aud hus been treated with
consideration in spite of them cannot afford to hurl chargeB of wilful misrepresentation.
We would suggest to our contemporary that it ls better policy, as well aB
better manners, to assume thut your opponent in telling the truth ub be sees it.
has done faithful and unrewarded work
for that party recently remarked to the
editor of The Daily Canadian: "Almost
thou persuadest me to be a Tory."
His explanation was that he was bo-
coming convinced tbat the Conservatives of Canada, like those of Hritain,
stood for preservation and consolidation of the Empire, and that Canadian
as well as Hritish Liberals atood for a
policy of drifting that must inevitably
lead to disintegration.
The truth of these remarks Is becoming more obvious every day to Intelligent and thoughtful men of all parties.
There are only two parties to the
recent Imperial Conference who are not
profoundly disappointed with the result
���or rather the lack of results.
The Little England government In
power in Hritain dreaded the conference, and Ib now heartily and frankly
glad that it is over and no damage done,
nothing to prevent continued worship
of the idol of Cobdenism, Free Imports
miscalled Free Trade,
Sir Wilfrid Laurier Is on exactly the
same footing. He sought excuses for
not attending the conference at all, and
was only shamed into going by Mr.
Horden and Mr. Foster. He did nothing
at the conference but discover obstacles
to the acceptance of every proposal, except���and let him have all credit for
the exception���the all-British steamer
Sir Wilfrid Laurier was the only member of the conference who supported
the Hritish ministers' policy of secret
"Failure and worse than failure," is
the verdict on the conference of all Imperialists, British and Colonial, and tbe
responsibility for that failure rests with
tljp Liberal governments of Britain and
A prominent Liberal of Kootenay who
It Is flattering to a newspaper to find
implicit and unquestioning confidence
placed in its reports. The verdict of
the coroner's jury on the death of David
M. Hosker was received by telephone
from the chief of police at Trail. We
took it us an exact rendering and quoted
It. That proved to be not quite the
case. But our version including the
question marks has now appeared in
seven provincial papers, including our
esteemed local aoiUempQHWr W "*SDe"

Our esteemed local contemporary Is
not alone In its sufferings from telegraph service. The death of A. Kenneth

T"e Strathcona
Toronto, May 20.���Whether the public may or may not legally buy on Sundays auch edibles- as candles, peanuts,
und sundry other forms of refreshments,
has been decided by a Judgment by
Judge Morson. From His Honor's decision there Is no appeal, as parliament
In Its wisdom has vested the sole authority to Interpret the meaning of the
lord's Day Act, passed last session at
Ottawa, In the hands of Ihe division
court Judge.
Judge Morson rules that the public
may legally buy any kind of food that
any Individual members may fancy, as
the Lord'B Day Act doeB not include ,a
statutory bill of fare. The only purveyor of things good to eat that the
public may patronize ou Sunday Is, however, the restaurant keeper. To buy
from any other supplier is to bring one-
Be)f,or, at least, to bring the supplier
withiu the meshes of the law. Whether
the articles bought are consumed on
the premises or not Judge Morson
holds to be Immaterial, His Honor looking on the suggestion that a restaurateur should be compelled to engage a
stall of attendants to see that his customers eat what they bought before
they left his establishment as absurd.
He alBO repudiates the claim that the
removal of the articles bought converts
the restaurant into a shop.
Thc caBe before His Honor was that
of Mr. John Devins, a restaurant keeper at Sunnyside crossing, who waB convicted by Magistrate Kingsford and
fined $20 on the ground that the selling
of candles was part of his ordinary calling aB a restaurant keeper. Mr. James
llnverson, K. C, appeared for the defendant, and Mr. Vv. Johnston for the
prosecution. Staff Inspector Archibald,
also ln association with Mr. Johnston,
argued that the offence was created by
the consumption of the candles outside
the restaurant premises, an operation
which changed the character of the establishment.

Successful Treatment Applied by German Doctor.
London, May 20.���The British Medical Journal tells this Btory: "A doctor
discovered a means of restoring lost
youth to women, which Is said to bo
more potent than Cagliostro's famous
penlarli' rejuvenescence and advertised
that he could in two days rejuvenate
the most decrepit hag. This brought
a crowd of ancient dames to his house.
At the flrst Interview, after a careful
auscultation, he Invited each patient to
write her surname and Christian name
and age on a piece of paper. The ages
to which the women pleaded guilty
varied, but nil ruled high. The doctor
undertook to glvo each patient thc
promised elixir the next day, but some
time was required to adjust tho strength
to the Individual power of resistance.
On the appointed day the women called
again, but the doctor expressed regret
that ho had unfortunately mislaid the
paperB containing their ages. For this
reason he said a new sot would be required. He added, casually, that they
ought to know that the oldest of them
must allow herself to be burned for the
good of the rest, ns the busts of the
remedy was human ash. The next day
the women bought back papers with
their ages on. It wns found that each
had laken many yonrs off the age previously admitted. The doctor, pretending to havo found the flrst papers,
called them to witness the success of
hla invention.    Comparing the lists, he
