New York. Jan. 22. Sir Wm. Van*
home, chairman of the Canadian Pa

outlook. He expressed the belief that
the wheels of business would soon revolve   at   their   normal   speed.
"This has been S v*-ry severe depression," he said and in my judgment the
rebound will be speedy. One can see
why steel and copper industries have
l>een paralyzed so that not Hfty pe<
cent, of the production or manufacture
Is the case. Large corporations could
not get money because they could not
sell their securities except al reduced
prices. Now money is becoming easy,

OMINOUS REPARATION
Japanese  Are  Converting  Formosa   Into
Fortress, Arsenal, Naval Base
and Transport Depot.
Washington, Jan. 22.���Accepting the
assertions of friendliness by Japan, the
United States authorities are puzzled
by the intense and warlike attitude of
tlie island kingdom, aud the cabinet
yesterday considered at great length
many  features of the case.
Formosa, in case ol war, would be
an ld< ai base for Japan. It would afford a harbor for transports, a base
coal and supplies, and a point from
Ahich to throw troops into the Philippines.
While many actual figures are lacking, it is kuuwu that Formosa is being
converted into a second Gibraltar; that
thousands ol troops are being conveyed
to the island by transports; that the
Commissary supplies there or en route
would care for a great army, and that
the ammunition supplies being provided
WOtUd replenish battleships and un army
sn well lor a stale of wariare.
For the last four years, on orders
from the Tokio government, no foreign
engineers have been admitted to Formosa.
The war department admits that no
representatives of this government is
allowed at any military point from
which he could make a single observation of Japanese loilitications, aud especially are they prohibited from visiting the arsenal, the torpedo arsenal or
the ship yards, where the Japanese are
now building two "Drcuduaiights" and
six submuiine vessels of a new type.
Formosa is, in expert opinion, au ideal
base of operations for the Japanese
against any enemy attacking their own
country proper or in the event that
should Japan herself at any time find
it necessary to make a descent on the
Philippinee,
Formosa is the one possession of
Japan lhat can be self-supporting in
the way of coal. It has large coal mines
and these, lt is asserted, have been put
in operation with the result that at the
port of Keclung nearest to the mines
there are now as many tons of coal as
the United States has afloat fdr hur
battleship Meet, That is to say, 133,000
tons.
Some exports repo_rt tho Japanese
supply at Keelung. Formosa, alone at
160,000 tons, lt affords a safe retreat
under formidable guns for the Japanese
fleet, and at the same time enables tho
tleet to he nearer the Philippines than
at Nagasaki or Kobe. Japan could assemble under the guns in the Inlets aud
on the recently created artificial Islands
a whole ileet of transports, lt ls this
last consideration which has made the
deepest impression on the board of
strategy here. It Is manifest that if tho
English, French. Gorman or American
lleet should attempt to watch any of
the four places in Formosa, Tokio,Keelung. Tamsul or the Tcnkwal, It would
be necessary to divide the fleet of oh*
seYvatlon.
Japan, says the experts, could very
well send her whole lleet to Formosa
and concentrate It. It would bo with
extreme   difficulty    that tho Japanese
(loot could be prevented from convoying
a tleet of transports to some point on
Subig buy or in the Philippines aside
from Manila or any fortified place where
there was even a battalion of American
soldiers.
A very high military authority to
whom this fact Of the fortification of
Formosa was comnuinipnted, said today
that strategically It was the best, and
in fact, the only move Japan could make
Ma'-.tug Formosa practically lm pregnable, ho sild, furnished tho best possible
base   for  Japan,   either   for   offence  or
defence.
This officer has been In Japan and
Confessed that while there he had heen
unable to gt t any fact of Importance
regarding    the    coast   defences  of  the
Islands. lie utld even on application
he could not visit uny one of tho Jap-
am So   fortr,   although   such   permission
is granted to visitors occasionally in
the i'nited states    The approaches to
Japanese forts are -maided now Just as
they would he In time of war.

WAS A PHlLANlUKOPtSl
Story of Thaw's Appeal to  Society for
Suppression of Vice  Against
Stanford   White.
Japanese   Spies.
Portland, Ore,. Jan. 22.���A special to
the Oregonlan from Fort Stevens. Ore.,
New York. Jan. 22.���Anthony Cow-
slock, vice-president of the society for
the suppression ol vice, ynut the principal ui.ness of the trial of Harry K.
Thaw today. He testilie-i that late in
LWM Thaw came to him and complained
of vic.ous practices by Stanford White
aud several of the hitter's friends. Uur-
iag the year that followed Thaw wrote
to him several times jyid was a frequent
visitor at the society's headquarters.
The letters were read In evidence. They
gave the names of the alleged victims
of White in the famous 24th street
house and referred to White as "The
blackguard."
"The house,*' Thaw declared, "was
consecrated to orgies and controlled by
six or seven criminal scoundrels."
The letters were new evidence in the
case but were mentioned at the last
trial when Dr. Kvuns was telling what
Thaw had said to him of Inn efforts to
have White sent to the penitentiary.
"I-^lid not want to Kill the beast," said
Thaw at that time, "but 1 want to have
him brought to court and have his acts
known. Providence intervened, however, ii was an act of providence."
"When Thaw came home the third
time." resumed Mr. Comstock, "I told
him I had been unable to secure any
evidence. He said he would furnish me
the names of several girls. I told him
il would be necessary to corroborate
the stories and we talked the matter
over s* me little while."
Mr. Comstock Identified some letters
from Mr. Thaw, having been received as
late as April. 1806a two months before
the tragedy. Mr. Littleton first read to
the jury a communication from Thaw
ti. Comstock written November. 1904,
It attempted to give a description of the
21th street house with crude diagrams;
appearing here and there in the text.
Thaw derlared the one room was furnished like a forest and that the escret
stairs led from it t- he room of the
mirrors. The door In the first room was
hard to find, he declared, but there was

ged. Thaw claimed that six or seven
i rinilnnl scoundrels controlled the place
ami that three or lour dt cent young
men who did not know of the criminal
acts often  frequented the place.
In anr-ther letter he Suggested that
plumbers working on a building adjoining the house might be induced t-<
drop some heavy article through Iho
sttyilght and reveal what was below.
Thaw also called attention to the fact
th.it there was a libel suit ln Paris in
stttuted by a young woman who had
been mentioned as posing for the picture previously complained of. Thaw
declared that the houses In 22nd and
21th streets were "consecrated to orgies
by a gang ��t rich criminals."
Thaw suggested thnt a copy of one of
his btters be sent to District Attorney
Jerome and also suggested that If Mr.
Comstock needed mote funds to carry
on the enquiry he might nsk Miss Helen
(lould for assistance In that line, (living

effort to safe this girl from "The blackguards." Thaw said he enlisted a prominent man In the cause who was nt first
loath to believe such practices as com

convinced. This in in threw what pro

MR. LEMIEUX' ACHIEVEMENT.
The English papers, led by the Times,
are praising ihu Canadian ministers,
and especially Mr. LemleUX, lor "tact,
dignity and statesmanlike calm.*' Since
_8ii6 those virtues ot deportment hav!
heen the only oner, displayed b) Cans
(Hau ministers and English papers have
applied tlie epithets, "dignified and
courteous" io sir Wilfrid Lauri< r as II
they wen- a part of his title, ui coum
yrm ure proud that our premier is di_ni-
lied and courteous generally. Then
have been, n is true. Instances ol dli
courtesy aud tha autltheals ot dignity,
as in the treatm< in  ul  Lord Dundonald,
Jjut such occasions have  loin  rare.
Aa a rule Sir Wilfrid Laurier and thi
r<��p<'CUlli)e   iiii'liile I.-.   <>!   his   cubim-l    do
behave wiih louiu.-y and dignity.
The virtues most essential to states
men are wisdom and courage. Wr
fchould like, tor othei reasons besides
Che novelty of It, t'i li' ar Dr read pralsf
of our ministers for the characteristic
���virtues. But in the absence of sm-l
praise, antl we have no title to complain
of those who withhold it, we prefei
praise of their court'sy, tacl and dignity to no praise at ull.
The substance of Mr. Lemieux' report
to the Canadian parliament, Ignoring
his long review of the Question with
which all in Hritish Columbia an fa
miliar, Is lhal Huron hayashi. foreign
minister in the present government ol
Japan, promised him, not only verball)
but in a latter In which Mr, Lemieux
in pleasant contrast to the lately formed
habit of his chief, was willing to pro
duce, that the Japanese would restrict
emigration to Panada,.
So far that Is pleasing. Hut Mr. Le*
nileux is quoted as saying: "The digul-
jlcd assurance of 1 lay itslij was a solemn
engagemi nl   wfelel)   Canada  was bound
to accept."
Thai is a m-w theory or consUtutlQ&a]
law. Who is bound by Huron Hayashi'a
"dlgnlQecl assurance"? We assumethal
his poUeagu s in the present ministry
will conaidei themselves so bound. Hut
Japan enjoys constitutional government,
her parliament is now In session and
the overthrow of. the present ministry
seems certain. Whal becomes then of
the "solemn engagement Whioh Canada
is bound to respect"? Wiih all deference to Mr. Lemieux there Is an Important difference between a dignified
assurance and a solemn engagement
Canada has bound herself by forma]
treaty to a certain line of conduct towards Japan. Like so many other acts
of the Canadian government since 1896,
that treaty was signed in thoughtlessness and ignorance. If Canada will not
respect that "solemn engagement" of
le r government, what title has she to
BXpl Ct   thut.  the Japanese  will  consider
themselves hound by the "dignified as-
- i,tne " of one minister, who may be
out of office within a month?
lt was a cruel task to SSSlgn to the
yoangest minister. The problem is one
t al calls for real statesmanship, for an
appreciation ot the new world problem
n i d by Japan's sudden rise to power,
for appreciation of the relations of
' anada to the world policy of the Km
pin-.    Kv-ii  the considerations of pre-
erving favorable trade relations and of
ivolding either violation oi repudiation
of a Iri itty, were minor difficulties In
comparison. But the chief consideration in the minds of our ministers was
he necessity uf iopU}lgg the resentment ol British Columbia and 'saving
ihelr faces."
Under the circumstances there was
nothing that Mr. Lemieux could accom-
,.l,sh. tb- has accomplished it, and with
tact and dignity, of course.

SHELTER TRUST RATES
Reduced  in  Face  of  Movement  Toward
General   Installation  of   Mi I is
for  Nevada   Mines.
Ah may have been untie!paled, the
prompt action of mine owners and operators or Cripple Creek and throogtaout
the State nt Nevada, in taking sups
to put In mills for the treatment of uro
at or near the mines, hat* resulted in
a change of heart on the part of the
smelting trust. That concern has already signified a willingness to receive
medium-grade ores from Nevada for
which they will promptly pay cash,
while on high-grade ore they have pro-
poaed to pay pari cash. This will probably result in renewed activity in the
mining regions mentioned, hut is nor
likely 10 cause an abandonment of plans
to construct mills, as previously proposed.
It Is reported that not long since several owners of some of tlie largest and
most important mines in Nevada held a
meeting, at which the proposition to
construct a large Independent smelter
was earnestly discussed. This might
Sfldrd tefief from the exactions of the
trust, but we believe that wherever
water Is obtainable in sufficient amount
mills for certain mines and In some districts for a number of mines, would result more satisfactorily than a smelter
at some central point. Water, power.
chemicals and experienced men are all
tbat are required In the operation of a
mill, but to successfully conduct a smelting enterprise requires suitable fluxes
In abundance, fuel at reasonable price
and transportation of ore to the reduction works and matte or bullion to
ii fineries at   a  distance.
Smelling is done at surprisingly low
cost in some districts, notably Butte.
Montana, in the Houndary district, Fl.
C, at Mount Leyell, Tasmania, and at
a few other places, but there is doubt
If these low figures of cost can be approached in Nevada, owing to wide distribution of the necessary materials,
lack of large amount of water required, the great distance to suitable fuel,
and the highly sillcious character of
the greater part of evada's ores.
Mills obviate all or most of these difficulties and should be preferred.
Where the mincB In the desert have
been sutliclrntiy extensive to Justify it.
Large mills have always been profitable
in that region and preferable to smelters.���American   Mining   Review.
