Thaw's  Counsel  Said  to  Be  Confident
That   Lunacy Commission   Will
Pronounce Him Sane.
New York. April 1.���The trial of
Harry Thaw will probably be resumed
on Thursday, when. It Is expected, tlie
lunacy commission will report
An Important development In the
court proceedings ugalnst Harry K.
Thnw is the nnnouneement today by
csmnsc] for the prisoner, thnt the Thaw
side rests, so far as further testimony
by their side ls concerned before the
lunacy commission. The defence be
Moves this will help to bring this par
tlcular hearing to a close by Tuesday
night, so that the trial delayed for moro
than a week by the movement to determine Thaw's sanity at the present
time, can be Immediately resumed, The
defence assumes, of course, that the
commission will lind that Thaw Is now
sano. In fact thoy are supremely con-
fldent of such an outcome, basing their
opinion on Ihe splendid showing Thdw
la said to have made, when questioned
by the commissioners. District Attor
ney Jerome does not share the opinion
of the defence that the commission will
conclude its hearing on Tuesday. He
said the defence was assuming too
lunch and expressed tho belief lhat sev.
ernl days would elapse uefore lhe commission reported. Mr. Jerome believes
lhat the commission will hear his alienists, besides, that the testimony of Dr.
Allnn McLane llnmllton will be admitted. There is no doubt thai thc hearing will be prolonged lf lhe slate's alien-
lsta are allowed to testify as fully as
Mr. Jerome wishes them to do but the
defence's Inwyers believe that they will
only bo allowed lo loll what they think
of Thaw'B present condition, and that
facts of the distant past, on which to
baae their conclusions, will be eliminated.
Daniel O'Reilly, who since the commission was appointed, hns taken an
nctlve pari In the defence with Clifford
Hartrldge, made tho announcement that
Thnw will stand on his testimony before Ihe commission nnd that counsel
will call no witnesses.    He said:
"The defence will offer no more witnesses. We will not call any alienist
although we know thai Mr. Jerome has
the promise of the commission to hear
what experts have to say on lhe writings of Thaw, on the evidence us adduced at the trial, and on Ihe observations Ihov hnve mado during (he trial.
Mr. O'Reilly exiircssed his opinion
that Dr. Hamilton would not be allowed
to testify and ho ndded thai he hoped
lho whole mailer would be ended Tuesday nlghl. He did not soe why It would
not. There was a brief session of Justice Fltsgernld's court today but the
jury was ngaln dismissed, until
Thursday, to await the report of the

Russian Parliament Fears
to Speak
Every Section of Douma Pledged to
Reform but Expect Dissolution
at First Mention.
St. Petersburg, April 1 ���The dlBcus-
Blun of the agrarian problem to which
the flrst Kussian Parliament almost eu.
tlrely devoted IU legislative activity, began In the bouse today. Over 100
a|��-akers signilied their intention of participating lu the debate, to which, according to the plans of the parliamentary leaders, only one day per week will
b>- devoted. The question is considered
to be of far less Importannt than it was
last year. Neither the Constitutional
Democrats nor the Socialists have much
expectation 01 s.rsiivlng ut practical results during the presenl Parliament.
Tliey are convinced that any measure
Involving lhe coni|iulsu:-y expropriation
of laud, which Is the basis of all Lib.
oral solution, will Immediately be vetoed by (he Emporer, and he regarded
hy the cabinet as a justification for the
dissolution of Ihe parliament. Bul the
house was forced to begin tbe discussion of the agrarian problem as a concession to the peasant constituents of
many of tbe members. Each political
party has put forward three or four
spokesmen to explain the features of
the programmes, but the great mass of
the speakers are peasants whose remarks will contribute but little to a
solution of the question. The real work
will mainly he done by the commiltee
to which the varlotiB projects will be referred.
The progmsltion of the Constitutional
Democrats, which was Introduced today,
was Identical with lust year's draft, it
Involves the compulsory division of all
estates above established maximums, to
be determlued by commissioners In
each province conBtituted for this pur-
IKise. The hill contemplates Individual
ownership, whereat, the programme of
Oroup of Toll, which was also Introduced, propscd the nationalization of all
land In the empire. The National Socialists Introduced a bill repealing all
Premier Stolypln's temporary agrarian
legislation, hut this probably will be allowed to die a natural death In committee.
The cabinet enactments such as the
abolition of the communes, modiflca-
tlons of the old system, and the dlstri-
but of land belonging to the imperial
domains are already In effect and loo
Intimately connected with the life of the
nation lo permit of their withdrawal.
The lirsl speaker today was Prince
Sviatopolk Mlrsky. a Monarchist and
land owner of Bessarabia, and a relative
of ex-minister of the Interior, Sviatopolk
Mlrsky, who made a long speech in defence of Individual property, quoting
literally from English and American authorities.
American  Trunk   Lines  Raise   Freight
Rates on Grain and Coal.
Pittsburg. April 1.���Tho new coal
freight rates recently announced by the
trunk line railroads, an advance of from
6 to 10 per cent over lhe old schedule,
went inlo effect today. The coal companies In Maryland, Virgins, West Virginia, Pennsylvania and Ohio are affected. Increased cost of operation is given
by tho railroads as the reaBon for the
advance In rates. A slight addition lo
tho price of coal will probably result
from the advance In railroad rates.
Chicago, April 1.���Increased rates on
grain and grain products from Chicago
to the seaboard were put Into effect
by tho railroads loday. The new rates
are from 17 1-2 to 111 cents. While the
Increased coat of operation ls given by
this railroads as Ihe reaBon for the Increase In rates It Ib generally believed
that the action they have taken is
meant as a counter-blow for the adverse
railroad legislation recently passed in
so many stales. It Is believed, furthermore, lhat this increase is but a forerunner of a general advance In rates
to be made by the roads throughout the
entire country. ^^
Following Suit.
New York, April 1.���Charles F. Bruch,
nsstetaiit general manager of the Postal
Telegraph, is quoted today as stating
that his company had raised lta ratei
practically to the same basis Is that
rectntly announced by the Western Union. The new rate went Into effect last
midnight, April 1st. Mr. Bruch suid
lu addition that It was caused entirely
by Ihe Increased cost of maintenance.
Foundation Stone Laid for German Hot
pltal  on  Olivet.
Jerusalem, April 1.���The foundation
stone of the new German hospital on
the Mount of Olivet was laid yesterday
In the presence of the governor of Jerusalem, the other local officials and
many spectators, to the accompaniment
of cheers for Emperor William and for
the Sultan of Turkey, who gave the
land and authorized the construction of
the hospital. Oeneral Dryander, the
court chaplain of Berlin, represented
Emperor William and Baron Von Mir
back represented tbe Empress. Dr. Dryander read a telegram from the Emperor greeting the Germans, the local
authorities, and tbe representatives of
other nations who attended the ceremony, and praying for the blessings of
tbe Almighty on tbe hospital.
Churches  Crowded with   Worshipers���
Approprltte Music, Decoration
and Sermons.
Easter Sunday was duly observed In
Nelson yesterday ln all the churches,
and everywhere the attendance over
taxed the seating accommodation. Oreat
pains had been taken at all tbe
churches with music and decorations
and ln both the results were worthy.
The early services at St. Saviour's
and at the Church of Mary immaculate
were very largely attended.
At Saviour's the rector's sermons
were both on tbe subject of the Resurrection. In the morning he spoke of
the Resurrection aa the demonstration
of the Divinity of Christ, of the Forgiveness of Sins, and of the "sure and certain hope" of Immortality.
The evening Bermon waa devoted to
thc significance of the Resurrection to
the world. Mr. Graham spoke of tbe
great experience of Christ, of life and
death, and life after death. The accounts of Christ's presence with his disciples after death proved him existent,
clothed upon already with His Spiritual
body, personal. Identical with His former self, except ln the flesh, but free
from all human limitation In time and
Turning to the meaning of death as
an episode in eternal life, Mr. Graham
strongly deprecated the use of the
broken column as a symbol of early-
death; It ls heathen ln its significance,
Implying failure and loss. Nothing ends
with death, no growth or development,
no acquired power, no achievement, no
effort Is wasted or lost by death.
Russian Statesman Burled.
St. Petersburg, April 1.���The funeral
of Count Lamsdorff, ex-Russian minister of foreign affairs, who died at San-
remo, Italy, March 19th, took place here
today and was attended by many prominent persons including all the ministers
with the exception of Premier Stolypln
and the members of the diplomatic
Better News from Chicago Conference-
Employees May Now Accept
Company's Concessions.
Chicago, April 1.���The railroads announce a secret canvass just completed
among their employees showing a
strong sentiment against the calling of
a big strike and in favor of accepting
she wageB offered by the roads. The
announcement was made to the federal
commission, which Is attempting to
bring about a settlement of the dispute.

the peace negotiations. Following this
move of the railroads a report was
spread that the leaders of thc unions
were preparing to make several concessions.

How Dominion Government Buys Land
Middlemen, Prominent Liberal Politicians, Made Profit 120 per
cent���Knew in Advance.
Ottawa, April 1.���One more Intercolonial land deal was thoroughly and
clearly exposed in the public accounts
committee on Tuesday, hy the sworn
evidence of the man from whom the
land was bought. The sum of it Is that
thc government paid |46,400 for a block
of land at Halifax which had been purchased within a few weeks by Intermediaries or middlemen for much less than
half the money. One portion comprising about 20 acres was sold to the government for $27,100 and bad been bought
shortly before for $7,677. While the
public accounts contain the name of
Joseph R. Henderson as the vendor, lt
came out In the evidence that be had us
an equal partner ln the transaction an
active politician and campaigner, a
member of the Nova Scotia administration and legislature, who had already
figured extensively In business transactions with tbe Intercolonial railway.
In Part W, page 25, of the auditor-
general's report for 1906 we find the
following statement of payments made
by the railway department for land and
damages ln connection with tbe establishment of a round bouse at Halifax:
Henderson, J. R��� land near Cot-
to Mill siding ($46,400.)
Windsor street lot 1, 25,800 ft,
land $1,500; damages $1,000.. $25,000
Windsor street, lot 2, 26,800 ft.,
land $1,300, buildings $1,700,
damages $300       3,300
Windsor street lot 3, 239,780 ft.,
land   $7,300       7,300
Windsor street, lot 6, 6a, 252,-

Kempt Road, lot 6, 942,185 ft;
land $26,000, buildings  $600,
damages  $500      27,100
Kempt Road, lot 9, 26,852 ft;
land $1,050, damages $1,00..      2,050
That $45,400 is what the government
pays. We now take a hasty survey of
what went on before the purchase was
Since 1903 the department hns been
considering increased accommodation at
Halifax for engines. Once the whole
engineering and superintending staff
agreed upon a site which waa subsequently abadoned. Then another was
favorably considered and the department went so far as to prepare plans
for the buildings and to have all the
properties vslued. While the lands were
under discussion in the summer of 1905,
mention was made of tbe site at Cotton
Factory siding. Close enquiry fails to
reveal the originator of the Idea, but it
took form In the autumn and before the
end of the year the deputy at Ottawa
and the manager at Moncton were discussing it. In January, 1906, the deputy
minister and several of the chief officers
went to the ground and from that time
forward lt was settled that thla site
would be taken. The final pronoun-cement of the subject wus made hy
Deputy Minister Butler on March the
9th, when he described the property to
the minister and officially recommended
that Immediate steps be taken to secure
it. A week later the deputy wrote Mr.,
Pottlnger telling him to instruct the
agent of the department of justice at
Halifax to close the matter at once.
Meanwhile there waB activity at Hall-
fax. The firm of Henderson & Potts
had paint works near the proposed location. Mr. Henderson of that firm had
discussions with B. F. Pearson, M. P. P.,
who Is now a minister of the Nova
Scotia government, nnd whose name
figures somewhat extensively in the expenditure statements of the Intercolonial. Mr. Pearson ls on exceedingly intimate terms with the railway department. He owns newspapers ln St. John
and Halifax and handles large printing
contracts which are farmed out to local
Job offices. He was one of the Incorporators of the Eastern Supply company, a concern chartered in Newfoundland, whose chief business seems lo be
the Belling of supplies to the Intercolonial on commission. Mr. Pearson discussed with Mr. Henderson the question os
buying up a quantity of land at the
Cotton Factory Siding, which property
naturally turned out to be the very land
that the department decided to acquire.
The property was owned by several per-
sons, and Henderson began to take options Boon after the deputy minister and
his corps of engineers and advisers had
located their round hotise site.
Mr. Pearson remained in the background and Mr. Henderson proceeded
to buy properties. Ho began by purchasing from his own firm of Henderson
& Potts the small block a.part of which
appears in the above table In the auditor's accounts as lot 1. The price paid
bv Mr. Henderson was $750 an acre or
|500 (or the 11,000 feet told to the
government This property as will be
Been was turned over to the railway
department for $2,500.
Uit number 2 wns purchased by Hen-
derson from A. Robinson for $2,500. Negotiations began early In March and the
purchase was compleled about the 15th,
n-t nenr as Mr. Henderson could recollect This property was straightway
sold to the government for $3,3sDO.
Lot number 3 Mr. Henderson purchased from James Reeves In March
for $4,000. It was transferred to the
government for $7,300.
1-ots number 5 and 5a were purchased
on the 29th of March from W. A. Hendry
for $2,876 and aold almost Immediately
for $3,160.
The largest lot of all, number 6, was
transferred to Henderson on April 6th,
negotiations having begun sometime before, though subsequently to the visit
of Ihe Intercolonial officers to the spot.
To the Velth heirs Mr. Henderson paid
$7,670. 70, which seems to Include Interest on notes and perhaps certain
taxes. This property went over to the
government In June but waa sold to the
department In May. The price paid waa
Lot number 9 was purchased by Mr.
Henderson for $1,200 from Susan Smith
and transferred to the government fnr

This rather startling result lt computed on figures givenby Mr. Henedson,
who told the whole story before the
public accounts committee. It ls true
thut when Mr. Henderson was asked
what were the exact proflts.he stated
that the net gains were $22,521.17. Thla
statement, which would have allowed
him only about 120 per -sent net margin,
included with the payments Uie price
paid for lands and sold to the government and did not Include ln the proceeds the value of the property left
on his hands. The land Mr. Henderson
retains seems to be down in hit books
as worth $5,000. His view aa to the
clear net profits ln the whole tr ansae
tion comes ont In the settlement with
Mr. Pearson. Mr. Henderson swore that
he handed over to Hon. B. F. Pear-son,

Powers   Conferring   In Prlvatt Before
Meeting at  Hague���Britain
Firm for Discussion.
Berlin, April 1.���The Russian government has submitted to the principal
powers confidentially a revised programme of the subjects to be discussed
at the approaching peace conference at
The Hague. Correspondence ln thla -connection between the Russian foreign office and the foreign offices of the powers continue, the object being to reach
an agreement. Great Britain haa not
formulated any precise plan for the limitation of armamenta aud seems unwilling to do so. Nevertheless, it Is -considered most probable that dlacusslon of
tho limitation of armamenta will find a
place in the programme' owing to Oreat
Britain's Inslstance.
Assertions made ln London that Germany will withdraw from the conference rather than have the question of
limiting of armaments discussed are unfounded. The United States, however,
reserves Its decision regarding participation In the dlBcusslon of disarmament,
the general view at Washington being,
lt is asserted here, that the United
States ls outside the European sphere
and It ls not ln a position to urge the
continental powers to reduce or arrest
their land armaments; while on the subject of naval armaments, the authorities
at Washington appear to be Indisposed
to cease their development.
Death of Charlea W. McAnn.
The death of Charles W. McAnn, K.
C, mayor of Kaslo, which has been
hourly expected for several weeks took
plaee Saturday evening. Although It
has long been known to be inevitable
thc news will cause sincere and wide,
spread regret.
The deceased was born In New Brunswick In 1865 and came to British Columbia in 1892. He has been one of the
stanches! and most zealous of the citizens of Kaslo, which showed lta appreciation by electing him to the office
of mayor, which he still held at the
time of his death.
For tbc last fortnight he has been
constantly attended by his brother, and
Nell F. Mackay. his former law partner.

"The -question of the greatest immediate Interest m llrltlsh Columbia at tlie
present time is undoubtedly the erar-
rangement of tlie financial relations between the Dominion of Canada and the
individual provinces of which ll is composed. The special interest of IiriilBh
Columbia iu the question is only one of
many Interesting features.
The amount of the subsidies payable
by the Dominion government to the pro
viucial treasuries is lixed in and by the
llrltlsh Nortii America Act, un net of
tbe Hritish Parliament, which only the
British parliament cun repeal or amend.
The amount so far paid lias lieen Kti
cents per head of population, und certain otber allowances for expense of the
administration of jUBiice, Including
judges' salaries.
For many years an Hgitalion has boon
going on, most marked in the maritime
provinces, to secure a readjustment of
those relations.
About ten years ago it became ap-
parent to the public men of llrltlsh Columbia, especially those who had to do
with provincial finances, that the Pacific province was paying iu taxes to
the Dominion far more than It was receiving directly or indirectly. The first
suggestion for more equitable treatment
took the form of asking for increased
appropriations for public works, which
would lighten the burden on the provincial treasury under that head.
The reasons why Brltlah Columbia's
contribution is disproportionate are
���somewhat complex. The chief reason,
however, Is casllycomprehenslble. Brlt-
ttsti Columbia is not yet to any great de-
Krce a manufacturing counlry, and
therefore derives less benefit than the
Eastern   provinces trom tbe Cuuuiliun
protective tariff. And British Columbia
is only now beginning to produce food
muffs. H iB still by far the largest
Importer, in proportion to population,
und therefore pays fur more In customs
duties, to the Dominion treasury, in proportion to Its |iss|iiiluisiiii thai) any other
But it wub not British Columbia's
claims, it was the Bteady ugitation of
the small Eastern provinces, that led
Sir Wilfrid Laurier to call u meeting
of provincial premiers to discuss the
What happened at that conference
has been told and discussed Bcores of
times und needs uo repetition. The
���salient fact for British Columbians ls
that the Dominion ministers, including
Sir Wilfrid Laurier, admitted that the
circumstances of the Paclflce province
are exceptional and entitle lt to special
treatment. As such special treatment
they suggest the grant of $100,000 a
year for ten years ln addition to all
othpr sums.
The suggestion has lieen declared by
all parties In British fjolumbiu to be utterly inadequate.
In the meantime Sir Wilfrid Laurler
bus introduced a resolution for a petition to the British Parliament to umend
the British North America Act by fixing
the new scale of subsidies proposed by
him, as "a final and unulterable settlement."
it is ii startling fact lhat on the discussion of tliat resolution In the Canadian House of Commons not one of
British Columbia's seven representatives had anything to say. Members
from otber provinces, especially Prince
Edward island, were active with amendments, but the only voice raised lu behalf of British Columbia w��s that of
George E. Foster, ex-minister of finance
Betrayed by her own representatives'
conspiracy of silence, no course is open
to British Columbia bul. a counter petition to the British Parliament. That
course will be taken. It is most unfortunate for the Interests of the province
that the leader of the opposition In the
legislature la a narrow-minded qulbbler.
Whether from mere fatuity or ln conspiracy with his fellow-partlzans at. Ottawa, J. A. Mncdonald has refused to
make British Columbia's protest unanimous.
is merely un amplification of his quibbling and petty fault finding. His
charges of inaccuracy and omissions in
the preamble amount to little more than
calling attention to tlie fad thai Mr.
McUride neglected to say: "Thank you
for that little bit."

Kegina, 8usk��� April 1���An interesi.
Ing tpiestlnn has been raised In connection with the creation or the Unlver
ally of Saskatchewan by a bill which
passed the legislature last woek. It
appears that there Is already a University of Saskatchewan in existence, Incorporated by an act of the Dominon
Parliament 46V10,, cap. 47. The senate
of this university, whicli Is a Church of
Kngland institution, met on Monday at
Prince Albert and passed a resolution
protesting against the establishment of
another university of the same name
and notifying the legislative assembly
and the government ol Saskatchewan of
their Intention tn maintain their rights
and praying thut lhe proposed act shall
be so framed anil constituted as to preserve their rights In full and to continue
and enlarge their Institution, Including
the establishment of a college at Prince
Albert ln connection with the said uni.
An Inquiry here Indicates that the
government Is much alarmed by this
resolution. The legislature has full control over education in the province and
Is within Its rights In establishing the
new university. The Prince Albert in-
stittitiun will con tlnue to have the right
ts> confer degrees In theology.
