Differences Between City and Company
���Expert En Route.
In thc absence of .1. O. Gllllce from
the city nothing definite can be learned
of the probable course of the Allls-
Clinlmers-Bullock company ln regard to
the action of the city council last night.
It Is learned that bo far, ln the tests.
a load of only 40 horse power haB been
carried by the machine, and this is not
sufficient to bring the buoyant action of
the water on the wheel Into play.
With a load of 250 horse power or
more there would be sufficient upward
thrust to prevent the present difficulty
���of hot bearings, and, running steadily
under thiB load, the bearings would
soon he glnzed sufficiently to run cool
under nny conditions.   At present the
load required by the city from the new
plant Is not sufficient for this purpose.
It is understood that, In the early de-
Blgns of the power plant machinery the
contractors advised numerous changes,
but the council decided not to depart
from the specifications of Mr. Clemens
It Ib learned that Mr. Pfau, the chief
hydraulic engineer of the Allls-Chalmers-Bullock company, has left Milwaukee for Nelson and will, on his arrival,
conduct a thorough test of thc new
Politics and Sawmills Keep Lake Town
Well Employed.
G. O. Buchanan ls In town from Kaslo and reports tbe city on the lake busy
and animated.        '
He says that W. K. Cooke's Kaslo
sawmill Is now running steadily with a
full crew and at full capacity, which,
In winter with the small logs available
at this time of year, means probably
ubout 50,000 leet a day.
The bay is full of logs and an ample
supply la assured.
An 8-inch water pipe Ib made to do
duty for the unfinished boiler dome.
Mr. and Mrs. Cooke arrived Saturday
night from Stillwater and will henceforth make their home ln Kaslo.
The Liberals of Kaslo riding will
meet at Lardeau tomorrow morning to

Indefinite Delay Until Expert Cornea to
Remedy Defect*���Other Proceedings of Council.
The usual calm routine of the last
meeting of a council was varied last
night by a definite report from the
city engineer to the effect that the city
power plant cannot be operated be.
cause of defects and that Indefinite delay must be Buffered until an expert engineer of the company arrives and remedies the defects.
In tbe meantime the city council declines to pay a draft for |H,4'*5 due today on account of the machinery.
Mayor Gillett called the council to order at 8 o'clock sharp with Aldermen
Selous, Kirkpatrick, Irving, Annable
and Rose present The minutes of the
last regular and special metings were
read and approved.
The finance committee reported recommending for payment two payrolls,

miscellaneous, 172.35; total, 1172.10.
The report was adopted.

Bomewhere near Vancouver. The city
council was asked to forward to the
Vancouver controller a resolution endorsing lt. Such a resolution was
At the manager's request city engineer McCulloch gave a report on the
power plant.   He said:
"As you are all aware, tho machinery
ts now all ln place and preliminary
tests have been made. So far the engineers of the Allls-Chalmers-Bullock
company have not been able to operate
satisfactorily. They have heen troubled
with hot bearings In the thrust deck, and
have so far not been able to remedy lt.
"I might explain that in all other Installations of the same kind a> ring has
been placed there, and an oil pump Installed to enable the thrust ring to revolve tn oil and so prevent friction and
consequent heating. No provision for
auch an oil pump haB been made In our
plant. Mr. Aberli assured us that lt
waB unnecessary.
"The matter ls now being taken up
wth the head offce of the company.
"It ls not a serious defect and can be
easily remedied. But lt involves delay,
perhaps indefinite.."
The city clerk then read correspondence by telegram between the mayor
and the company's managerln Montreal.
The mayor had Insisted on an expert
being sent to take charge. He hnd also
declined to pay the company's draft for
114,495 due on December 8, 90 sluys
after shipment, on the ground that the
machinery was not yet according to
The correspondence follows:

Allls-Chalmers-Bullock Oa.
All machinery Installed for some
days. Party In charge falls to operate
lt. Insist on having an expert sent out

disappointed in your treatment.
W. O. GILLETT, Mayor.

After many    daya' trial    machinery
still useless for purpose Intended. Bear-
ngB appear ground down a quarter of
an Inch. Bullis states has advised you
of condition of affairs. An equipment
that will not generate power ls useless.
Under these circumstances, you cannot
expect city to meet draft, 114,495, maturing 8th. Council meeting Monday,
and unless draft withdrawn will require
to Btate all circumstances openly to
council and act accordingly. Answer.
W. G. GILLETT, Mayor.
Montreal, Jan. 5, 1907.
VV. G. Gillett, Mayor, Nelson:
Answering telegram of 4th, have Instructed Milwaukee to send expert to
Nelson immediately. Trouble probably
due to hurried erection, causing bad
alignment which can and will be rectified promptly. Have spared no expense and consider we are entitled to
payment of draft maturing 8th, city being amply protected by $5000 deposit
and $14,000 due after 30 days run.
. J. A. MILNE, Gen. Man.
Allls-Chalmers-Bullock Co.
A resolution was adopted endorsing
Ihe mayor's acts and refusing payment
of the draft In question.
The old question of the Canada Drug
& Book Co.'s account for anti-toxlne,
and S. S. Taylor's claim for damage to
books by fumigation of his house, was
again taken up. A long discussion followed as to the city's liability and to
the equity of the claims against the
city for losses suffered by private Individuals incidentally to services rendered to them. The matter was finally
laid over.
The c iiincil then adjourned to Monday, January 14, at 10 a. m
Cost Per Horse Power of Victoria Falls
Electric Energy Estimated at $500.
London, Jan. 8.���The prospectus Is
now Issued of the Victoria Falls Power
Co., Ltd., registered In Southern Rhodesia under the companies' ordinance,
with a share capital of ��3,000,000 in
1,000,000 ordinary shares of ��1, all of
which are now Issued, and 2,000,000
preference shares of �� 1, of which 625 -
000 are now issued. The company is
formed to supply the industries of the
Rand and of Rhodesia with electrical
power generated from the Victoria
Falls on the Zambesi river and at auxiliary steam power stations ln the vicinity of Johannesburg. It need not
be said that the enterprise, by which
the greatest waterfall in the world is
to be harnessed for the service of the
greatest gold field extant, Is romantic
and fascinating. The story of South
African, and especially of chartered finance has shown that many shareholders seem to be content with romance
and fascination even when unaccompanied by dividends. To such as these
this prospectus will appeal strongly.
Those who look for profits will be comforted by the reflection that the company's steam-driven Installations ought
to earn it dividends, as long aB ir does
not spend all Its resources on the Falls
scheme, concerning which lt must be
admitted that the capital cost will be
a serious bar to net revenue. It Is calculated that the capital cost of steam
equipment in the Transvaal ls about
��20 per horse power. The capital cob!
of Victoria Falls power Is worked out
nt something like ��100 per horse power. Water power only replaces fuel,
und coal in the Transvaal will not cost
more than 9 shillings a ton.
Sketch of H. B. Thomson, on Conservative Ticket in the Capital.
H. B. Thomson, who was yesterday
nominated on the Conservative ticket
for Victoria, was formerly a resident
of Nelson. In years gone by he managed Turner, Beeton & Co.'s Nelson
branch, and bo highly wns he esteemed
by the DUsiness men of this city that
on the eve of his departure he was entertained at a public banquet at the
Phair hotel. In 1899 he was elected
an alderman for the East ward and bo
great was his personal popularity that
without canvassing a voter he was returned at the head of the poll.
In the old-time political fights he
was ever ln the forefront and that he
enjoyed these contests is best evidenced
by a remark he made in a letter received last night from him by a strong
personal friend. "I would like to be lu
Nelson for the elections. Tell Jack he
hae my best wishes for succcbs."
Octogenarian Murderer.
Calgary, Jan. 8.���Among the cases
which will be decided by the court en
banc which commences today, la the
case of Rex vs. Joslah Gilbert. Gilbert
al present lies under sentence of death
for the murder of a neighbor near Regina. Gilbert Is now 80 years of age
and If a point of law which was reserved by the Judge at Regina is decided
against him, he will hang on or ahout
January 18. It is not possible that the
judgment In ihis case will be handed
down until the conclusion of the sitting, aud tbe condemned man will suffer suspense for some days yet, and
he may not know his fate until within
a very short period of tho date which
Ib fixed for Ills execution.
Level of Reservoir at
Danger Point.
Unless Remedy  Applied at Once
"Service to Rotor Users May
Be Discontinued.
A dangerous state of affairs was discovered this morning by the city engineer. The level of water in the city
reservoir was found to be below the
limit of safety. If a remedy cannot he
found at once, lt will become necessary
to stop the supply of water to users of
motors. It Is earnestly hoped by the
city authorities that every consumer in
thc city will do everythng possible to
avoid forcing the council to an extreme
step,- which would mean the crippling
or closing ot many of the industries of
the city.
One of the causes of the partial failure of the wai.-r Bupply is the unusually severe frost which has bound the
mountain streams and diminished the
supply at Its source.
Hut there Is another cauBe of the water famine and which Is not creditable
to the Intelligence or to the public
spirit of the people of Nelson. That
cause Is the wanton, deliberate waste
of water by householders by keeping
ail their taps running to avoid freeping
in the pipes. An equally effective safeguard wouffl be the turning off the water by the outside connections, but the
latter is a little more Inconvenient to
the householder, who does not care to
expose himself to cold or even to move
from his fireside. It ls easier to let
the taps run and risk not only the
Bhutting down of the water-motors and
the industries served by them, but also,
possibly, the failure of the city's water
Bupply in the event of a conflagration.
The suggestion of putting meters ln
all houses to check waste of water has
often been mooted at the council board,
but tbe measure has been deferred In
Ihe optimistic hope that In any emergency confidence may be reposed In
the good sense and public spirit of the
citisens. A day or two will show
whether or not such confidence Is misplaced.

Keen Contests Resulting From Revised
Plan of Home Tournament���Tonight's Fixtures.
The change In the curling programme
for Die season decided upon by Messrs.
Walley aud DeVeber has commended
itself to the great majority of the club
members. It prolongs the club's home
Berlcs and means that Interest In the

lansdowne's Defenee of Peers' Attitude
on Education Bill.
Details of the reception by the house
of lords of the commons' challenge on
the Education Bill are now to band.
The feature of the debate was the Marquis of Lansdowne's eloquent and elabo.
rate defence on general and constitutional grounds of the action of tbe peers
In amending the measure in question.
Lord Lansdowne at once rose and
amidst cheers declared that the message from the commons was of an entirely unprecedented character. The
message was that the house of commons disagreed with all tbelr amendments entirely���a momentous and extraordinary decision. They could
scarcely weigh the full Importance of
this message, curt ln language and almost contemptuous In tone. Many of
the amendments made In the bill had
come from the other side of the house.
They were told that the object of the
bill was to give popular control, and to
allow tbe local authorities to be masters ln their own house; but where ln
the amendments made in the bill had
Iheir lordships denied the right of the
local authorities and not to Ue their
hands, but what were the reasons for
rejecting the lord's amendments ln
globo? It was said lt was a question
of time, but he reminded the house that
il was at first arranged to devote four
sittings to the consideration of those
amendments. Then there was a sudden change and they now had their
amendments thrust back on them. He
did not think they could take this
treatment lying down. The constitutional questions involved raised that of
the future usefulness of that house,
and he asked them what position they
would occupy if such treatment was
condoned by them���the ruling out en
bloc of the decisions of that house.
They would be told that there was no
dlsrepect Intended to that house; but
disrespect Intended to that house; but
al least the appearance of grave disrespect. They might reply that they insisted upon their amendments, but he
suggested that they should not send
that reply until they had some further
answers from the ministers.. If they
could find some course ot extricating,
not that house, but the government
from its present position, they should
be glad; and be invited the government to Btate what proposals they had
to make to save the bill. He begged to
move the amendment that the house recorded its protest agalnBt the Innovation ln constitutional procedure by
which the commons had rejected the
whole of the lords' amendments to the
education bill, Including those proposed
by his majesty's minister, without giving any specific reasons for the rejection of those amendments, and that
the house adjourn the consideration of
the commons' amendments to the lords'
amendments in order to afford the government an opportunity of making a
definite statement as to the course they
were prepared to recommend to the
house of commons with regard to each
material aoendm ent to the bill.

of the West Coast fishermen against
the decision ot a magistrate, handed
down last November, fining them $500

vivendl will be virtually nullified.
Uruguay on Har Rights.
Ottawa, Jan. 8.���The Dominion government has been advised that a law
prohibiting the licensing of seal fishing
ln the territorial waters of Uruguay
has been promulgated. (Several Canadian vessels have been seised for fishing
in Uruguayan waters and it was found
that there was no law to prevent this.
It was also denied that the vessels were
within the three-mile limit. The law
bas now been promulgated and Canadian sealers will have to keep out of
these praters.
Premier Scott Better.
Regina, Jan. 8.���The marked Improvement in Premier Scott's condition continues.   The position ts more hopeful
than at any former period of his III-
Times' Review of Anti-Japanese Feeling in California   and   President
Roosevelt's Stand.
There ls a striking discrepancy between the views of President Roosevelt's Japanese policy reported from
the Atlantic and Pacific coasts. Our
own correspondent ln Washington tells
us today that the president's message
on Mr. Metcalfe report meets with almost unanimous approval In the East
em press, and that among the representatives ot the Pacific coast there Is
no indication of any outcry. People
are convinced that the labor unions
are at the bottom ot the expulsion ot
Japanese children trom the schools, snd
that the courts will know how to deal
with the matter. On the other hand,
we learn trom San Francisco that the
feeling against the Japanese has become so acute ae to excite apprehension that nothing the federal government can do will have the least effect
In improving the situation.
What is wont of all ln this matter Is
that the whole trouble Is of political
origin. There was no quarrel among
the people. Japanese children were
noted for brightness and Intelligence ln
study as well ae for hearty participation In games, and they were Uked by
the American schoolboys among whom
they studied and played. But It occurred tn the politicians now In power
in power that capital could be made by
stirring up race hatred.
Having Inflamed the populace against
the Japanese the next step ls to appeal
to Its passions against the federal government, which dares to insist upon the
observance ot national engagements
and to give effect to the sentiments ot
the overwhelming majority of the American people. Tbe cry of state rights la
raised and the constitution ls appealed
to, and at once the justice, the legality
and tbe national expediency of the San
Francisco policy are forgotten questions. . . . The Amercan constitution ls a written document, but its Interpretation is liable to change. It was
once thought sufficient justification of
slavery to quote the text���"Cursed be
Canaan." That text stands where It
did, but lt Is differently read, and slavery haa been abolished. So there are
things ln the constitution that had one
meaning when relations with the outer
world were very scanty, but must carry
a very different Interpretation when
those relations are numerous and Important. It Is more than doubtful
whether the constitution ever contemplated a case In which one state might
Involve the Union In war, commercial
It not military, by sets which It would
not dare to perform If lt had to bear
the burden of Its own defence.

Victoria, B. C. Jan. 7.���At one of th*
most enthusiastic conventions ever held
In the city of Victoria the Conservatives tonight placed the following ticket
in the field:
.Hon. Richard McBride, H. B. Thomson,
H.F. W. Behnsen and Alderman Fred
R. P. Rlthet, a pioneer merchant, and
one of the most Influential business
men In the province presided and delivered a strong speech ln favor of the
McBride government.
He aald the business men of the province ware behind McBride In the present fight They wanted no trifling
with stable conditions and the conn-
try's prosperity which had bean
brought about only after a great struggle to combat the forces which wen
now arraigned against McBride would
lose In the end.
Both Mclnnes and Macdonald met
with an absolute frost at the Victoria
theater tonight. The audience wes
markedly apathetic, neither ot tha
much-lauded leaders ot the Liberals

of their line of attack which ia worth

Nothing that has occurred so far ln
the provincial campaign shows quite so
plainly tbe desperate plight of the opposition as the resurrection ol the ancient complaint about Mr. MoBrIde'8
failure to take John Oliver inlo his cabinet in 1908, It was believed that that
childish complaint had been abandoned
by everyone excepi the unfortunalc Mr.
Oliver himself, In whose bi'aln ideas
take root slowly, and by lhe compensation of nature, also decay slowly.
But the Inclusion of the old charge
��� among the long list of equally valid
' criticisms by ,1. A. .Mncdonald recalls
it to the attention of tbe public, lt is
true that Mi*. Macdonald furcbore all
mention of It until he had talked his
audience Inlo a somnolent oonditlon,
but the words were spoken and reported in the local opposition organ.
II Is fitting, therefore, thai lhe slander should be laid at once and for ever.
When James Dunsmuir resigned the
premiership In favor of Colonel Prior
the division of the legislative assembly Into parties was a very complicated
one. The only opposition at first had
been the little group of followers of
ex-Premier Joe Martin���Including Willi'
Mclnnes. But when a secret alliance
between Ihe premier and Mr. Martin
was acknowledged by the taking Into
the cabinet of J. C. Brown, Mr, Martin's
chief lieutenant���Willie was then only
a full private���a new opposition was
formed under Mr. McBrlde'B leadership.
Its largest element was the group of
Conservatives who followed Mr. MoBrlde. It included also Smith Curtis,
who denounced Martin's betrayal of his
follower* and of a few like John Oliver
���himself n Martlnlte originally, who
could never he happy except In oppo-
When Colonel Prior's administration
was defeated in the house. Lieutenant
Governor Sir Henri Joly, following established precedent, called upon Mr.
McHrlde to form a cabinet.
In Ihe meantime provincial conventions of Conservatives and Liberals had
both declared for parly lines as the
only solu Ion of the difficulty, growing
greater year by year, of keeping any
parly united long enough for the transaction of public business, when Its
members were elected on local Issues
untl had no common purpose.
Mr. McUride himself had twice���in
1S9S and 1900���been returned as a Conservative by the electors of Dewdney.
Naturally, Mr. McBride gave effect
lo Ihe publicly expressed and reiterated
wish of the country for a system of
government and party organization
which would ensure continuity of policy nnd administration.
Why It should be thought that John
Oliver has a special grievance while
Smith Curtis has none, it Is difficult to
conceive. No one would pretend for
a moment that John has a fraction of
the ablllly of Smith Curtlc. In fact,
to anyone who knows John Oliver It Is
Impossible to conceive of a position In
u cabinet that John could fill.
Possibly ll Is for John's benefit that
J. A. Macdonald suggests a portfolio
or Labor nnd Immigration that Is not
to Interfere with labor nor assist Immigration.
Surely in Nelson, where the headline
'Dishonorable Dick MoBrlde," perpetrated In lhe local Libera] organ, is
still remembered with shame by decent
Liberals, Mr. Mncdonald was Ill-advised
In referring to the matter even before
a tired and sleepy audience.
J. A. Macdonald has publicly ln Nelson declared that has no sympathy with
Joe Martin. Has he exacted a similar
profession of faith from his "powerful
colleague," Wlille Mclnnes? Willie
was one of Joe's llttlo band of followers
afler the collapse In 1900 of the only
Liberal government British Columbia
ever bad. Still, Willie, "It Is said," was
once quite ready to swallow Socialism,
even the revolutionary Socialism which
Mr. Macdonald calls anarchy. Willie
also swallowed "Liar and Slanderer"
from the Toronto Olobe in 1896.   Prob
ably Ihe variety of diet In which Willie
has indulged has cured his appetite of
any nicety or delicacy It may ever have
known. It would not be surprising If
he oven excelled his leader I ?) In the
warmth of his denunciation of Ihe now
despised and rejected Joseph.
The one touch of humor In J. A. Macdonald's address to tho Liberals of Nelson was his complaint that the government paid too high a rale of interest
ou thc forced loan of $1,000,000 which
Ihey had to raise to cany on the business ot the provlnoe when they took
ofilce in 1808. It Is quile evident that
Mr. Macdonald, tho busy legal practitioner, has never had to arrange an
overdraft or negotiate a loan. We confess humbly and sorrowfully that we
have not been so fortunate. We have
descended to such measures frequently, and on each or such occasions we
have allowod the manager of the bank
to Ilx the rate of Interesi. That was
our stupidity, of course. lt really
never occurred to us to tell the manager that we preferred arranging that
detail ourselves.
lt was suggested by one of the patient
ones at last Thursday's meeting tbat
ou all such occasions a band, or at least
an oiclKBJra, should be lu attendance
lo enliven the Intervals between speeches!. The idea ls a good one, but
perhaps It is as well that lho device
was not resorted to laat Thursday. The
painful contrast between the music and
Ihe "stirring" campaign speeches would
cause so many encores of the instrumental numbers that Mr. Macdonald
would never have reached Kaien Island,
not to speak of Ottawa.
It Is a sin on the part of the wicked
Conservative press to Bay anything
about such a trifle as the claims of
the Dominion when the Liberals wish
to discuss matters of such overshadowing importance as a government land
sale, John Oliver's grievance at not being called the Honorable, and, chiefly,
the "merciless** eloquence of that modern combination of Pericles and Demosthenes, Willie Mclnnes. The Liberal press is probably well advised. Its
readers will feel more at home in the
mire of Oliver, Mclnnes and scandal
than they possibly could in the discussion of a question of real Importance.
Much Is made by unthinking Liberal
speakers and writers of the fact that
the opinion of the minority of the Kaien
island investigating commlsson ls not
Included in the printed reports which
are obtainable at the government offices by all who wish to read them.
The reports contain every word of evidence offered and the official finding
of the commission. But lt Is not evidence that the Lberals want; lt Is lurid
denunciation. So keen a student of poi.
il les as S. S. Taylor, K. C, has not
taken the trouble to read the evidence,
as was proved by his hesitation at the
Liberal nomination meeting, and his
final frank appeal for Information to
the only Conservative present���the representative of The Dally Canadian.
Even J. A. Macdonald, after delivering
himseir or that pretty and polite phrase,
"a band of adventurers, male and female," has not cared to discuss the
matter seriously. His chief complaint
now is that before the transfer was
made the government should have told
the legislature���that Is, Mr. Macdonald���all about It. Meanwhile, serious
people who really wish to know the
whole truth ahout the matter may obtain full reports of all the evidence by
applying at the office of Government
Agent R. A. Renwlck.
London Times Exposes Drift of Fielding
Tariff Polcy���Sir Charles Tup-
per's Views.
I-ondon, Jan. 8.���The tariff reform
controversy In Great Britain Is not by
any means dead, as American despatches attempt to prove. Joseph Chamberlain may be worn out in the fight, but
members of his fumlly deny It. But
even the death of Mr. Chamberlain,
while it would be matter for general regret, would not be the death blow or
the fair trade movement.
Interest in tariff questions was lately revived hy an editorial in the TlmeB

alleged Canadian Preference ns modired
In Hon. Mr. Fielding's latest pronouncement.
To the resulting controversy the veteran colonial statesman. Sir Charles
Tapper, who was one of the first to Bee
and proclaim the advantages of reciprocal Imperial trade relations, has contributed the following:

ance on this vitally important question?
At the general election in Canada of
1891 Ihe Issue raised by the Liberal
party was free trade with tlie United
States, whicli Involved the adoption by
Canada of Ihe tariff made ln Washaing-
ton against all the world, including
Great Britain.
Mr. Laurler (now Sir Wilfrid), the
leader of the Liberal party, after his
defeat publicly pledged himself to a
lifelong devotion to that policy.
At the general election of 1896, as
leader of the Conservative party, I propounded the policy of mutual preferential trade between Canada and Great
Britain, which was received with such
enthusiasm throughout the Dominion
that sMr. Laurier was obliged to declare
in favor of it and pledge himself to do
his utmost to secure its adop'ion if he
obtained power.
Having secured a majority upon a
race and religion question, Mr. Laurler,
when called upon to form a cabinet, selected as his minister of finance Mr.
Fielding, who ln 1886 had obtained a
majority in the local legislature of Nova
Scotia In favor of taking that province
oul of the Canadian federation.
Mr. Fielding, knowing that his party
could not retain power unless thoy
adopted the protective policy whicli
they had denounced for 20 years brought
forward a preferential tariff as the only means by which they could lower the
Sir Wilfrid Laurier, on his first visit
to England In 1897, denounced mutual
preferential trade, but when Sir Michael
Hicks Beach imposed duties on bread-
stuffs both he and Mr. Fielding were
compelled by the overwhelming public
opinion of Canada to declare that, If
Canada were exempted from Ihose duties, they would Increase the preference.
The effect upon this question of the
last general election of the country has
been well expressed by Mr. J. J. Hill,
who told the people of Chicago that
"Canadian reciprocity" Is still possible
because of tho downfall of the Chamberlain policy in "Great Britain," and
that Is followed by a tariff ln Canada
which opens the way to destroy the existing Britsh preference by tiansfcrrng
it to the United States.
With the potentialities of Canada to
become, ln the eloquent words of Lord
Grey, one of the "most powerful factors
of the English-speaking world, "what
lover of the empire can contemplnte
without dismay these proposed measures to unite the destiny of Canada
with that of republican America?

King and Queen of Italy Condemn It by
Precept and Example���Stork
Expected Again.
Rome, Jan. 8.���Queen Helena entered
upon her thirty-fifth year today, but,
owing to an Interesting event expected
to take place shortly, the birthday anniversary was allowed to pass almost unobserved at the Qulrlnal. The impending visit of the stork ls looked forward
to with Joy ln the royal household, as
well as throughout Italy, for lt Is the
cherished wish of the young king and
queen to rear a large family.
The royal couple already have three
children, the Princess Yolanda Margher-
Ua Milena, born on June 1, 1901; Prln-
cesB Mafaldos Maria Ellzabetta, horn November 19, 1902, and the heir to the
throne, little Prince TJmberto Nicola
Tommaso Giovanni Maria, Prince of
Piedmont, who was born September IB,
Queen Helena has always been more
than content to devote herself to the
care of her children, holding aloof from
affairs ot state and rearing them with
the care and attention that a woman
of the plebeian ranks would bestow on
her offspring. Essentially a womanly
woman, the queen is perhaps the most
attractive royal personage of the day
and certainly she ls the most beloved
nnd admired woman in the kingdom of
Italy. The king is devoted to her and
as a rule they dine alone by choice, and
their merry laughter may be heard by
those In the next room. They spend
little time ln the royal palace at the
Qulrlnal, but live mostly ln the small
palace at the bottom of the garden
built by Pope Corslnl and set apart during the life of Victor Emmanuel II., and
Humbert, for princes visiting Rome, lt
is of modest dimensions, but is pleasant
and comfortable and furnished with refined simplicity, quite In the English
Queen Helena's love of children ls a
popular tradition throughout the kingdom. The number of fat little "bam-
blnoa" who have felt the caress of her
royal lips Is beyond computation, and
at the charity bazaars which she visits
It Is always the baby clothes booth that
secures her earliest attention and patronage. She cannot be reproached with
bourgeois tastes, however, for when the
occasion arises she presents a bearing
not to be excelled by the most fastidious courts, and lt has been said that
nho surpasses ln majesty of carriage
any olher sovereign ln Europe.

The decision of the Western league
magnates to take n Topeka, Kas., now
In the Western association, brings
about a condition among the minors
that will be Interesting to follow. A
team will be placed also In St. Joseph,
Mo., which with Topeka will make the
Western league an eight-club organization. Dut will the Western association
stand by and see Topeka and its champion club taken from them?
With over BO "per cent, of the big
league hitters batting lefthanded, is it
any wonder that managers are working
overtime trying to corral southpaw
As the old grounds have been sold
the Toronto baseball management will
have to do a bit of hustling to prepare
new grounds in time for the opening
next season.
President Dovey of the Boston Nationals thinks Pat Flaherty Is just- the
prize pippin he haa been looking for.
According to the Southern league averages, Atlanta's* star pitcher. Tom
Hughes, was a regular wit. Tom will
be with the New York Americana the
coming season.
There will be few circuits "of the
minor leagues the coming season, which
is pretty good evidence that 1906 was
a prosperous year for them.

evening and will appear before Judge

parties* names were struck off by the

ties upon which Ihey claimed to qualify had never been registered and appeared to have been given only for the
purpose of conferring upon them lhe
right of vote. R. M. Macdonald has
been retained to oppose the application.

A pe culiur and benuiiful frost effect
was observable ami observed by many
on Llaker street this morning. On the
window ot Hugh McCausland's boot and
shoe store was traced a perfect picture
of a tropical forest, with the tall,
straight trunks of gigantic trees with
occasional interlacing branches, and nt
their bases dense and luxuriant foliage,
ferns and giant creepers. To the left
through a perfectly natural-looking
clearing, could he Bean the surface of a
forest stream. A. Lean took a photograph or the window, which, if successful, will be a very valuable one.
