Nelson Citizen  Enlightens old Country
People  on  Possibilities of Fruit
Mr. J. Lang Stocks, who, as is well
known ln Nelaon, is at present on a
visit to his aged mother ln her Scottish home Ib not evading and opportunities to paint ln glowing trulhful pictures the possibilities of fruit culture
ln the Kootenays. The Issue of the
Fife Herald and Journal of the date of
February 13th contains an Interesting
reference to an Illustrated lecture delivered by Mr. Stocks at Kirkcaldy. The
subject of the lecture waB "Kootenay's
Famous Fruit and Fruit Lands" and
thc -saper mentioned reports the proceedings of the meeting in these words:
"By a series of beautiful lime-light
views, Mr. Slocks conveyed a vivid Idea
of the scenery passed in crossing the
continent to British Columbia, and on
his bringing hlB audience to Nelson,
which Is charmingly situated at the
head of an arm of Kootenay lake, lt
was here that Interest specially centered. Mr. Stocks went on to tell how
b> accident there had been discovered
tlie marvellous fertility and frult-raislng
possibilities of the Kootenay regions.
The photographs, most of which were
taken by himself, showed fruit trees,
such as cherry, peach, apple, and pear,
In all stages of growth. The highest
awards for the fruit raised In this district had been obtained In open competition In London and eleswtiere with
the fruit growers of the British dominions, and Mr. Stocks conclusively-
showed that a man with a few hundred
acres of frull trees could live In independence and comparative affluence for
tho rest of his days. Of course, lt goes
without saying that the climate of Nelson nnd the siin-oujidlng district is
superb. As to a market there was uo
difficulty about that; Winnipeg alone
could lake all the fruit they could raise,
conveyance being mado by refrigerator
ln acknowledging a vote of thanks
proposed to hlm by Mr. Munro Ferguson. M. P.. who, as proveost of Kirk-
cauldy. presided, Mr. Stocks spoke a
word or two on the relations subsisting
between Great Britain and Canada
which 1 hope Radicals of Klrksnuldy
and of the whole of Fife and the public
generally will take to heart and get
their parliamentary representatives to
put Into practice ere II be loo late. Mr.
Stocks said:
Canada was loyal to the backbone to
the mother countory. There waB a time
when overtunres might have been listened to from the United States, when
Canada was a small and struggling
community, but Uncle Sam hud treated
her then with contempt. Thnt time wns
now past. Canada lind developed Into
n great and mighty nation, and loyal
she was to the mother country, as was
shs *�� bv the pn ference the hnd given
the old country In her tariffs, lt was
now for Britain to do something for
her. If the mother country would do
nothing for her, then an alliance might
be formed with some other country, for
Ihe advances should not all come from
the Bide of Canada."
Rush for Canada.
London, March 5���A Liverpool
agency that had advertised for 10,000
ablo-bodled men to work on railways ln
Canada waB yesterday besieged with
applicants. Commenting on Prof. Lea-
cos-k'B speech before the Insurance institute  at Montreal  In  which he de
clared he did not advocate the separation of tlie British empire, but opposed
the Idea that Canada, being a tributary
state, was dependent on British authority, Letford says that the professor
does not always, or even often, express
the popular opinion, and we need not
attach too much Importance to Lea-
cock's utterances, but take them for
what they are worth. However, they
run strongly against the conception of
Imperial unity and strengthen, rather
than weaken, the conviction that If thc
union is to be nromoted emigration
should   be enco and   lnter-ocm-
munlcatlon Incr J cheapeed.

the council of the empire, accompanied
by Baron Uefkull Deguilenband, secretary of the empire, entered the hall
after the service. The former Immediately called the lower houBe to order
and invited the members to sign thc
oath of allegiance to Emperor Nicholas.
The Conservatives cheered the mention of the name of the emperor but
the opposition remained silent. The
Social Democrats did not enter the hall
until Mr. GolubutT hud finished speaking, when they came in a body, demonstratively. After signing the oath the
balloting for president of the lower
house commenced. There was no serious disorder, but the crowds outside
the palace were unruly, and several
times had to he driven back by Infantry'

Coaches   Leave   Track   Crashing   Into
Freight Cars���No Fatalities but
Many Injured.
Tlvoll, N. Y., March 5.���The Limited
Fast Mall train from Chicago for New
York was partially derailed while passing throng Tlvoll nt 5:05 today nnd ten
persons were Injured, all hut one sustaining only slight bruises. Conductor
Broke, of the dining car suffered a
broken leg nnd three passengers and
six other employees of the Pullman car
suffered BCnlp wounds and bruises.
Among the wounded was 8. R. Hepburn. Plcton, Ont., scalp wound.
The train lert Chicago at 8 a. m. yesterday and was due In New York at
8.15 a. m. today. It consisted of a bag
gage car. four sleepers and a dining car.'
At a point 800 feet south of the Tlvoll
station while passing over nn Interlock
lug switch on n straight track tho three
rear cars, two aleepers and the dining
car wore derailed. Tho rest of the
tuiin remained on the tracks. The derailed cars ran into a string of freight
cars standing on n siding between the
southbound I racks and thu Hudson
river along which the track runs at
that point. The freight cars wore over-
tunrned hut the pnBsenger cars remained upright. Only the presence of the
freight cars prevented the passenger
enrs from going over the embankment
Into the river and possible loss of life.
The Injured passengers and porter
wero taken to the Hoffman hotel In
Tlvoll where their Injuries were treated. They were then placed on another
train and proceeded to New York. It
Ib believed that the cars were either
derailed by a switch or that a journal
was broken.
Complications Arise as to
Legality of Marriage
Jerome Changes Tactics and Now
'.Seeks to Prove Thaw Was
Never Insane.
New York, March 5.���The growing
probability that the great fight In the
Thaw case will centre about the efforts
of District Attorney Jerome to send the
slayer of Stanford White to the asylum
lor the criminal Insane has caused the
eminent medical and legal authorities
to probe anew into the much-discussed
subject of criminal responsibility of the
The question Is "When shall the plea
of Insanity be considered valid ln extenuation of crime?" In answering
this questiou one of the world's greatest authorities, Dr. Sachs, has said: "In
the light of the present condition of
psychiatry, no person shall be considered guilty of'crime lf, at the time the
crime was committed, he was suffering from any torm of mental disease."
New liork has practically made hei
statute according to this. The statute
says: "No act done by a person in a
state of insanity can be punished as an
offence." In pursuance of the amended
law, Judge Glldersleeve, ln the appellate -court in New York, charged the
Jury In the case of the People vs. Mrs.
Lubtnaker: "If a reasonable doubt exists as to whether the prisoner Is sane
or not, she is entitled to be benefit ol
the doubt, and to acquittal."
Opinions expressed during the past
few weeks make It plain that a majority
of the members of the legal profession
believe lhat the Insanity plea will save
Harry Thaw from conviction for murder. Few of those who have expressed
an opinion however, believe that he will
escape punishment.
One of the prominent members of the
Medico-Legal society of New York Ib
quoted as follows: "The question of Insanity in lis relation to capital crimes
Is peculiar. There are those who will
maintain with logic that no person who
takes the life of another ls in his right
mind. The madness may be but momentary, but, as they contend, the brain
that devises and executes murder is
almost always sick. To follow such a
view to Its legitimate conclusion, however, would be to destroy all the theories of punishment for capital crimes,
and punishment ls intended as much
for the protection of the community as
for the rebuke of the evil-doer.
"It has been generally deemed safer
to err on the Bide of extreme meausures
dealing with criminals who attack the
state of their fellow-beings than to take
the risk of jeopardizing the general
Bafety by undue laxity. It ls questionable, at best, in how far insanity can
be pleaded as an excuse for capital
crimes. The man who is right on all
points save the one that nerves his
hand to murder is a dangerous criminal
at least in the eyes of the law, and it
has generally been thought best for
him and for the community that he
ba prevented from the possibility of
further harm."
New York, March 5.���It ls probable
that Mrs. Wm. Thaw, mother of Harry
K. Thaw, will take the stand In the
Thaw trial today to do what she can to
save her son from the consequences
of the act which resulted ln the denth
of Stanford White. Mrs. Thaw's testimony Is expected to show that In
his youth her son was of a nervous tern
perament and that he suffered from
varloiiB nervous diseases. It has been
said that she will also tesltfy to a strain
of Insanity In the family.
Dr. Charles G. Wagner will be put on
the stand for a time, at least, today, as
his cross-examination was not completed when court adjourned last night.
Mr. Jerome seems to be trying to show
by Dr. Wagnor'B admission that Thaw-
was Insane, while he devoted most of
his time with Dr. Evans In attempting
to compel the alienist to make admissions that would tend to show Thaw Is
now Insane. Mr. Delmns made few ob*
Jections to Mr. Jerome's questions to
Dr. Wagner, and there are many who
rollowlng the case closely, who are of
the opinion that the defence will not
object to this line of questioning, while
they will resist strenuously any attempt to show that Thaw Is now Insane, preferring to take their chances
with the jury rather than with a lunacy
commission. Tho Insanity plea allowed
them to put Evelyn Nesbitt Thaw's
story before the Jury. It is certain that
the defence will take the case to the
Jury If lt Ib possible and will light to
the last ditch against a lunacy commission.
Another point ls being dlsucssed. It
ls the legal standing of the marriage
between Thaw and Evelyn Nesbitt.
Both Dr. Evans and Dr. Wagner bave
testified that Thaw was of unsound
mind when he signed the will and codicil on the night of April 4th, 1905.
This was the day of the marriage, lf
Thaw was insane at tbat time he was,
under the law of Pennsylvania, incompetent to enter into a contract. Marriage ls under the law, a contract, and
if he was Insane at the time, his marriage would be actually void under
the law.
New York, March 5.���The prospects
that Mrs. Wm. Thaw, the mother of
the defendant, might Ih* a witness today at the trial of Harry K. Thaw,
for the murder of Stanford White, apparently had but little effect ln reviving the Interest In the curious for the
courtroom Bhowed many emvty benches
when Justice Fitzgerald took his place.
Dr. Charles Wagner, superintendent of
Ihe state hospital for insane at Blng-
hampton, was recalled to the stand and
his cross-examination resumed by District Attorney Jerome. The prosecutor
began by reading the characteristics of
the brain storms so as to take up the
line of questioning where is was lelt
off. The witness yesterday referred Mr.
Jerome to any state of brain storm
cited in one of the medical authorities.
Today thc prosecutor asked lf the alienists knew of any other reported case
of brain storms. Dr. Wagner said he
could not recall any offhand.
Thaw brought his customary batch of
letters into court and after a brief whispered conversation with his counsel
proceeded to read them. He then took
a large pad out of one of his big brown
paper envelopes, secured pen and ink,
aud began to write a letter. He was de-
cldedely the least Interested spectator
in the room. Dr. Wagner's definitions
of the various forms of insanity apparently had no interest whatever for the
man on trial for his life. In fact, the
expert testimony throughout has bored
the prisoner Immeasurably.
Mr. Jerome asked Dr. Wagner lf he
could cite a case of brain storm ln
which the onset took place In 10 mln
utes.   The doctor could not.
Mr. Jerome then decribed In detail
the scene on the roof garden when
Thaw shot White.
"Does the calmness and deliberation
with which Thaw walked down the
aisle and shot White indicate anything
about his metal condition? Is lt natural
for a person suffiering from brain
stcorm to act In this manner?" he
"I have already told you that I can
not lay down any rule as to conduct
in Insanity," replied Dr. Wagner
"There is no natural way In which
things are done. Insanity is ln itsef un
natural." He then cited two cases in
which Impulses controlled the patient.
Mr. Jerome asked Dr. Wagner If he
knew personally of any case similar to
that of Thaw.
"I have seen thousands of cases of
Insanity." replied the witness, "but
none of them were alike."
"Since you will not answer my que*
tion directly, am I right in assuming
lhat you never heard of a case of brain
storm or mental fulminntlun In which
the person committed a violence with
"I prefer to answer as, I have."
"You couldn't tell what was going on
In the defendant's brain except whs'
was apparent to the eye, could you?"
"Now, was there any single thing in
the hypothetical question indicative of
a brain storm?"
"I can't treat the hypothetical que*
Hon in that way."
The district attorney read extracts
from the question and asked if they Id
divldually  suggested a  brain  storm.
Dr. Wagner said that, taken collec
tively, the facts Indicated a mental ful-
mlnatlon, an extraordinary state of
Animated  Discussion on Closer Union
With Britain or Independence���
Cruchmen'i Club  Meeting.
The regular meeting of the Churchmen's club held in St. Saviour's mission
room last night was very welt attended.
The only programme was a debate "Resolved, that Canada's ideal is independent nationality rather than membership
in nn Imperial federation."
Mr. Ebbs suggested that speakers for
the club's debates should be chosen
from the young members rather thau
from veterans. Mr. Clark protesUJd
against being asked to treat a serious
subject seriously ln n ten-minute
Mr. Ebbs led, painting the glorious
potentialities of Canada, Its extent, Its
wealth, and Its fast growing population,
nnd urged that very soon independence
would be Impossible.
Qeorge Johnstone's line of argument
wae simple and direct. He declared Independence Impossible, and of the alternatives of closer union with Britain
and annexation to fie United States
ho showed the Immeasurable advantages of the former course.
It. J. Clark had no enthusiasm for
Canadian Independence but was averse
to further union with an empire ln
which the mother country and several
colonies were committed to labor-liberalism, which meant selfish class legislation and neglect of the duties of
J. Feasor closed the debate showing
the advantages enjoyed by Canada at
preaent, and the dangers of Independ
ence not only to ber freedom but to
her Ideals and national character. He
admitted, however, that the present
home government had no sympathy
wllh Imperial aspirations.
Rev. Dr. J. H. White and Rev. R. N.
Powell, who entered during the debate,
were warmly received. Dr. White spoke
briefly, greeting his many old friends
present. Mr. White spoke eloquently on
the glories of the empire, deprecated
the attack of Mr. Clark on the British
Liberal government, admitted Its neglect of colonial interests but hoped for
better things.
After the meeting a large majority
voted In favor of federation, short
speeches were made by A. W. Dyer and
W. Brown, and refreshments followed.
The next debate will be arranged by
George Johnstone.

wltb the butt end on the bead, knocking
the man to tbe floor. A crowd of boarders rushed In and Patterson waa held
until tbe police arrived. Soon Constable Taylor and Chief Debb* were oa the
scene and the desperado was put under

to tbe hospital.
Magistrate Palling wa* summoned
and ln -short disjointed sentences Armstrong told his version ot tbe affair, hla

and identified as tbe man. When life
was slowly ebbing away Armstrong told
his story. He wu utterly unable to

seemed to be very low and doctor had
to revive him with stimulate as be made
what may prove to he hla dying statement. Costello, the proprietor the
boarding house where tbe shooting occurred, wbo was also injured, says tbat
he bellevea Patterson was crasy. He
did not sets the shooting of Armstrong
but rushed upstairs from the collar
when he heard the shooting only to be
confronted by the maniac, wbo at once
fired. Costello then grabbed for bin
and succeeded In felling the man to tbe
floor with a blow on the top of the
Dr. Martin and Dr. Manlon, who attended the Injured man gave little
hopes of the victim's recovery. His

CaaMal *td m\taehe
legis'ature which haa In view the imposition of a tax on lhe products of
metalliferous mines. The tax is not yet
fiied but it is to be upon a sliding
scale dependents upon the profits accruing from the exploitation of the mineral
resources. The salient features of the
bill as stated by the Toronto News are
"a recognition of the rights of the peo
pie of the province to benefit in some
degree from the rich mineral stores
of the north."
In the enactment of this legislation
Ontario is simply following the good example of British Columbia, where the
2 per cent tax has been in frictionless
operation for three years. In Ontario.
85 here, there may be a temporary re-
rigtance of the ordinance, but when the
fairness of the proposed legislation is
understood it will be as heartily ap
predated as any measure designed to
conserve the people's rights, in public
A more striking feature of Ontario's
new law is the clause in the bill
which taxes natural gas. The same
principle which is applied to the mines
is found here. A meter is to be attached to every well, and a tax of a
certain number of cents mot yet fixed)
charged on every thousand feet of flow.
In case the tax is promptly paid, a rebate of 50 per cent shall be made on
the amount used in Canada. This legislation is necessary because of the enormous amount of natural gas piped over
from the Weliand Peninsula to Buffalo.
The bill is so explicit that it will be exceedingly difficult for anyone to evade
lu provisions. The penalties are heavy,
and affidavits are demanded from the
men in charge of each mint? or gas
We wonder why the same principle
might not be wisely extended so as to
Impose a tax on oil. Many pans of
Canada have extensive oil fields which
arc yielding fortunes to the operators
and owners. Surely if minerals and
gas are taxable as public resources oil
should be in the same category. Slowly
but surely men are coming to adjust
themselves to the economic principles
and to adapt themselves to the economic measures which will right the
r.rongs of society and hasten the day
of economic contentment. Ontario,
through her government, is helping to
educate tbe public sentiment to the
point where righteous legislation is ap

The opponents of the principal of
municipal ownership hare taken to
citing London, the capital of the world,
as a conspicuous instance of the failure
of the principle when put into operation. For more than ten years that
city bad bean under the rale of a radical element In !;s citizenship who have
run the practice of the theory into the
ground and a st,rong reactionary movement has developed with the purpos-
of defeating the Socialistic county
ex unci 1 which has so extravagantly
managed the peoples' affairs. I'nder
Socialistic regime the city has been
plunged Into an indebtedness of one
hundred and twenty millions and the
more conservative element in the pott-
tical life of the metropolis have determined to call a halt.
We are not surprised 'hat Orii f* * :���
Jng should be arounsed for the county
council has managed th** business of
the miniature universe with a recklessness and extravaganec that beggars
description. With the vast resources
0' the city at their disposal they have
systematically squandered the peoples'
money in putting into practice the least
profitable features of the municipal control  program.
Nor are we surprised that the Utopian experiment should have failed.
The larger the city, the more need of
ihrewd and conservative men to manage Its affairs. The London county
council was composed of men elected
from the popular walks of life for the
most part. A largo majority of them
were men without business experience
and whose minds were saturated with
extremely   impossible  ideals   of   munf-
pat government. The necessary balance between income and expenditure
was, with them an afterthought, and
when deficit stared them in the face
the borrowing power of the municipality w-as invoked to bring relief.
Such methods of financing must have
an end and the great city is facing a
More than that, the largest city in
the world ls the last place in which
such a radical theory as that of municipal ownership or control of public
utilities should be put into operation.
The traditions of centuries are hard to
overcome and to place before the public
free baths, free theatres, free lodging
houses and other things is to begin the
work of economic reform at the wrong
eni. Municipalization fs, at first, best
���dftpted to smaller communities and the
municipalization of public utilities is a
slow process which must not travel
faster than the appreciation of the people nor must it made an excuse for a
system of free benefactions to the
; ��� ;* ��� At best It is but a system by
which tlie municipality should manage
the affairs of the pubile with the same
-regard for business principles and
sound economics, as any other, such as
a private business enterprise. The salient feature is to save for the people the
vast sume that, under private ownership, go to enrich avaricious corpora-
The reason why the principle and
practice bas failed in London is be-
eaug��t it has bea operated upon Socialistic lines instead of upon sound economic lines. The county council of
Ismdon has afforded the best object
b-sson in the difference between th*
va-^ari's of Socla'ism and the soundness and practicability of an economic
theory which in other places is proving
the right to a wider public recognition
Whether London will be able to retrieve her fortunes and shake herself free
from the rule of Irresponsible spendthrifts we shall soon see but in the
meantime the student of economics will
not fail to distinguish between the
value of a sound principle and Us reckless abuse.
The government of the province of
Ontario ls at last awakening to a rea*
l'zatlon of Its responsibilities as mis*
tees of the people's property and a new
mining law is under discussion in the
While the coast cities are busying
themselves with questions of game protection and representative committees
will approach the legislature will petitions for more stringent regulations for
the preservation of wild animals the
attention of the government will be
called to the necessity of exercising a
jealous care over the fisheries of the
interior. The Kaslo beard of trade, at
Its regular meeting last week, passed
an important resolution which may well
be emphaclsed by the endorsement of
the local board. The resolution was
as follows:
"That the fisheries of the lakes and
rivers of the interior of British Columbia are capable of producing large supplies of food, and that it is the opinion
of this board, that a systematic investigation of their varied resources, and
the means best adapted to conserve and
improve the present supply of fish is
one which is of importance to the prov-
luce: Therefore, be it resolved, that the
provincial government be requested (lt
to instruct its fisheries commissioner
tn examine and report on the same (2)
to enact such regulations that will be3t
conserve the present supply, (3) and
further aid the industry by the erection
of hatcheries and other work."
While it is always desirable that our
fecund supply of fish and game should
be widely advertised it is equally wise
that an eye be kept on the future, and
recognition be given to the fact that
the constant depletion of these supplies
by the free and wholesale slaughter of
game that is Indulged in must, in the
near future rob us of one of our boasted assets. The government has announced its policy as one no longer
necessitating anxiety as to the accruing revenues but more property one of
wise expenditure. It Is evident that
ih" various sections of the country do
not intend to be backward in suggest-
ine to the authorities the manner in
which money may be wisely expended
in the public interest. We heartily endorse the suggestion of the Kaslo board
and hope its effect will Ur supplemented by similar resolutions from
Chief Justice Hunter in an address
delivered before the Canadian club at
Victoria last week among many other
important things said: 'To his opinion
llrltlsh laws were superior to any
others upon two particular points, 'the
even-handed administration of Justice
and the full and free development o*
absolutely responsible government.*
"Another point wblch be though:
might well be emphasized was the necessity of introducing into the public
schools, the colleges, etc., more of the
spirit of patriotism   than   at   present.
There *as no d*. ubt th.t

Pated Nov. 18  W_ K, H, Hum.
Calgary, March 5.���The rseoond meeting of the United Mine Workers' Association waB held in the Co-operatlvu
hall yesterday morning.
International Hoard Member Burke
was called upon to addresB the meeting
and responded as follow:
The district west of the Mississippi
is going along in a very encouraging
manner, and it might have been still
better tn the western countries, as the
only opposition they had had were the
Western Fuel company and the Pacific
Coast company.
The western men were paying an
advance of 10 per cent, but the men
found that this was simply a bonus of
10 per cent.
The Washington association, Mr.
Burke mentioned, received an advance
ot 10 per cent on the scale of wages.
Vancouver Island had also advanced
12 _ per cent as well as Rowland
who had put up a ihi to 9 per cent
If the Pacific Coast company would
allow thetr meu to loin our organization, and lf they could be persuaded to
join they would receive an advance of
25 per cent,
Mr. Burke also pointed out that the
Pacific Coast company, besides not allowing their men to Join the organization, woul not allow outsiders to canvass them.
The Black Diamond and Rossland
mines had had to light vigorously
agalnBt the operators but had not
Bhown very good results, although they
were still continuing the fight, that the
books had shown 61,000 paid up members, and $6000 In the treasury.
He also warnel t!io3C prkH'int lo beware of making any rash statements
at the coming convention. If ihey wer"
not sure of anything do not KLy it.
The joint convention wiuld be the
means of bringing together the un-
ployer nad the the employee, and what
they wanted was conciliation and arbitration.
When they got together they wanted
to reconcile each other and remove any
prejudice that might be there. They
want to impress on the minds of the
operators that the miners' position is
correct and the operators' wrong, and
not merely make it a try to force the
operators to give In by might alone.
He did not believe in arbitration that
called in a third psrty. No matter how
fair the umpire was he was bound to
give the decision to one party or the
other, and the loBer was sure to feel
ssore, as both parties feel that they are
in the right.
The arbitration he believed ln was
to try and settle their own differences
between the operators and the miners
and if they left this week with an
agreement made this way, they would
have so much the better satisfaction.
Their movement was a great labor
movement. They were seeking to go
down and take hold of the man who is
toiling and trying to improve his condition and make a happier and better
citizen of him.
The delegates might not get all they
wanted at once, but they should keep
plugging and plugging along, even If lt
took years and years, and not be dis-
h canned.
They were not to be disappointed if
he and other visiting international officials did not jump right Into the conference, as every step they took, or
statement they made, must be absolutely correct, and they would proceed
cautiously at first, and perhaps be just
as cautious at the finish.
In closing he expressed the pleasure
he felt at being with them, and trusted
that their expectations would be more
than realized.
International Vice President Lewis
also addressed the meeting along the
same lines.
He announced that he was opposed
to any law which deprived the labor
man of the right to strike and tbey
should oppose it vigorously.
The next meeting will be held today
at two o'clock.
