TREMENDOUS   CONFEDERACY
Mr.   Perk*,   M.   P.,   Pronoses   Ambitious
Future  for   Wesleyans.
London, July in.���At tin- annual conference of the Wi-Hleyan adherents silling in Wesley chapel, Robert W. Turks,
M. P. for Lincolnshire, presented the
Important proposition that the time bail
arilved wh.-n Ihe W'esleyan forces
throughout the world should bind themselves with a mighty hand and grapple
with the great economic and social
questions  of the  day.
He suggested that the aim of Methodists should be, in ail parts of the
world, lo deal with the questions of Immigration and unemployed labor aud to
build up a practical land society and
savings hanks, and other kindred institutions for mutual aid. Mr. Perks declared that Methodism is a vast religious freemasonry with world wide riches
und resources only wanting the proper
machinery to become a iremendou* con-
fefleracy for mutual self help. No action was taken ou the proposition thus
presented hut the conference was greatly  impressed   with  the  possibilities.

CHOATE'S PROPOSITION
American  Delegate   Suggests   Extension
of   Arbitration   Treaties  to
Include All.
The Hague. July 19.���At the committee meeting yesterday morning Jos.
11. Choate, one of the American plenl-
potenttarieo, made au important statement of the reasons that had induced
the American goverument to propose
a general treaty of arbitration. He
said: "The dangers and mischief threatening the world t'room constant preparation for war ami at'cumulatlon of arms
huve been somewhat mitigated by the
excellent work of the first peace conference ill recommending arbitration to
the nations as a substitute for war, and
the establishment at the Hague uf a
permanent coiut. Since this time f^eat
events have occurred and two terrible
wars which Inflicted untold misery upon
many nations have led to International
agreements of arbitration, separately
and In pairs, there is no reason why
nations that agree by each other or two
by two should not agree all together
to exactly the same thing." Continuing.
Mr. Choate referred to the excellent
work done In this direction by the 1'an-
Amerlcan conference ut Mexico City
and Rio Juneiro.
The Hague, July 19���A statesman of

FINANCIALREPORT
Accounts of 20,000 Club
to June 30th
CONDITIONS IMPROVING
Deficit Has Been Reduced From Last
Year an.' Confidence Restored
���Tasks Outlined.
Below is published the detailed statement or the 20,000 Club for the month
ending the 'iOth of June last, which was
brought down at the recent meeting of
the executive committee. While it re-
v. als thai the club still has hard work
before it to collect the necessary funds
to carry out the Important and useful
wotk it has In hand, the position Is
not neurly bo difficult as the statement
published in another paper would make
it   appear.
As shown, the .lull has an apparent
deficit al date of ivs.l. 3G, and the working expenses are estimated at |125 per
month, which, for six months running
this year, would make $750, or a total
to be provided by the 31 Bt of December,
next, of $1,273.36. This form of statement is very clear and presumably the
club will continue to publish such a
one each month; the public, then having full confidence in the administration
uf the affairs of the club, will respond
liberally  to appeals for assistance.
The value of the club cannot be overestimated but while the secretary has
ample occupation In answering correspondence, nttending to visitors, and
distributing the printed matter in hand,
there is much yet in the way of advertising and issuing publleatums that can
be done with the greatest possible advantage.
The club Is lo be congratulated upon
having a building now almost ready for
occupation, which is suitable and conveniently situated and will be attractive
and useful as the public loan natural
history and mineral specimens for
proper display. This building, which is
well constructed, has cost the club
funds some $200, but is worth at least
$600; the generosity of lumber men and
others having rendered it possible to
put up such a good building bo cheaply.

Russia Denies Report.
St. Petersburg. July 19.���Nothing Is
known hero of tho report published In
n London newspaper yesterday In tho
shape of a despatch from Vienna, lhat a
wholesale massacre of Jews had occurred at BkontS, In Russian Poland,
near    the    AuBlrtun    frontier.    Further
more, in reply to a query, the correspondent at Warsaw of the Russian
Telegraph declares there has been nt
anti-Jewish outbreak in any Jewish
province  of Russia.
UNIQUE  TREATMENT.
No American Ever Welcomed by British
Like Mark Twain.
Ixindon, July 19.���Mark Twain has
sailed and a serious word should be
said about hla extraordinary month's
visit to Kngland. No foreigner has ever
been treated as he has been treated by
the Kngllsh people. His welcome began as he walked down the gangplank
when the stevedores on the dock broke
Into cheers. The highest and greatest
in the land had polned eargerly in all
forms of tribute to this untitled friend
or all mankind. He says himself that
the universal welcome by the masses
at every opportunity has pleased him
the most. The wonder is that a man
of 72 or any age should go through the
enormous programme of the past four
weeks and live to tell the tale. Mr.
Clemens not only lived but thrived upon
it and he goes home to write such a
chapter of his autobiography as no
other American was ever able to record.
If the truth must be told Twain's popularity in Kngland is of a wawrmer and
more personal nature than even In his
own country. He has won the hearts
of the Lnglishnien as no living writer
has done and they love to do him honor.
Tbe cheer* at his departure were of a
different note from those on his arrival,
and for once his emotion silenced him
as he waved good bye.

VISITOR'S APPRECIATION
J. T. Fife's Account of Water Carnival
at Nelaon on Dominion Day���
Warm Admiration.
In the course of an interview after his
return to Vancouver from a leisurely
tour J. T. Fife, who was one of the
judges of the Dominion Day water carnival, hns the following to say of Nelson:
"The Dominion Day celebration at
Nelson was one of the most imposing
celebrations that ever took place in Hritlsh Columbia." continued Mr. Fife. "I
never saw anything like It. The magnificent background, unequalled for
Bcenlc grandeur anywhere else than In
British Columbia, was played up to
splendidly. Nelson showed u flue sense
of what might be called verlsmllitudo,
and the show wus In keeping with the
Iheatre which nature had provided. Tho
aquatic display baffles description
There were eighty launches In all: ono
of Ihem by which 1 was particularly
struck was an $8,U00 craft. All boats
on the lake were required lo put out
lanterns, the city council having arranged fur (his. The ftneness of the
aquatic spectacle was much enhanced
hy the lake steamers, the Kootenay, tho
Kusknnook. and the Moyle playing their
llashlights all the time the sports were
In progress.
"Yes, the sports were good. I acted
as one of the judges. The other two
were Mr. John l.ungan. of Chicago, and
Captain Gore, the well known Nelson
commodore. It wss a hard matter deciding to whom the prizes should be
given, but���yes, 1 think you may say
that our decisions gave satisfaction.
Mr. Lnngan said ho had nevor seen tho
display  equalled outside of New York.

Edmonton, July I'l.-^-The proposal
that the three western provinces, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia, should unite in the establishment
of a great university meets with approval from several well known educationalists here.
The suggestion was made to a gentleman prominently identified with educational affairs here and he agreed, with-
o-.-t in;- hesitation, with the statement
in the artic.c t.,at 'for many years to
come universities in the separate western provinces would be of a very primitive kind. A university in Alberta
would have but little standing and be
but little more than a big high school
without any standing in educational
circles.
"Yes, that Is right," he said, "Alberta
la not in a position yet to maintain a
university that would keep our young
men and women from attending Toronto and McGill and, from my point of
view, when we establish a university
we want one that will be the equal at
least of the best in the country. 1 feel
that everybody realizes that at present
this is impossible in Alberta. It Is too
big an undertaking (or a young province
to attempt to endow and equip a university that will attract the students of
the province away from the universities
of the east."
This gentleman further remarked that
he thought the minister of education
had overestimated the number of students a university in this province
would appeal to. He says that, even
with the presence of a university In
the province,, the attendance for the
first few years would be very limited,
especially when it is recollected that
there Ib a flourishing college In existence In the province supported by a
leading religious denomination and attracting many students. The very fact
that this college would be animated
with a provincial university would be
a great deal more to Its advantage than
the university, as it would enjoy the
lectures of the university professors
and be enabled to secure degrees for
Its students, and at the same time retain the students on its roll.
Another gentleman, a graduate of
Toronto university, favors the combined
university for the three provinces and
he uses the following argument: "Take
Toronto university for example. It Ib
supported by the province of Ontario���
the wealthiest province in the Dominion
���and yet there has never been a time
In the history of that university thut
the province has been able to keep up
with thu linaiieial needs of the institution. There has been a continual de-
iniiiul for funds. Wo must admit at
once that If Ontario finds it difficult tu
support a provincial university Alberta
would And the task fifty told more so.
I believe the combined contributions
and support of the throe growing western provinces would give us a university see..ml to none tn the Dominion.
We would have three provinces contributing money to the university and the
people ot those provinces, once they
relt the university wiib able through Ibis
combined support to furnish the funds
to supply un excellent start und the bust
equipment, would Bend their chldren
there to be educated. Parents are very
careful in the present day in their
choice of Ihe university their children
are to attend. They want the best
their means can afford. 1 am sure, and
I have thought this matter over vory
carefully, that tho Albertau university
would have a hard rond to tread for
Bomo yearB. I am loyal enough to Alberta to be anxious enough to have
this province possess a university, but
I would not want to see It with any
other than a university that would be
as good as tho best."
These gentlemen did not commit
themselves to any particular location
for tills Last West university. They
were satisfied that a central place well
suited for u university town would be
selected.

Marrying an American Girl.
Paris, July 19.���Prince Robert de Bro-
glie, whose marriage a year ago in Chicago with Miss Estelle Alexander, an
American, was yesterday declared void
by the French courts, will within a few-
day formally notify his father, at whose
instance the marriage was annulled, of
his intention to remarry Miss Alexander
under the French law. This notice will
be Berved through a notary. Under the
law passed during the last session of
the Chamber of Deputies modifying
marriage procedure in France, Robert
is free to marry at the end of 30 days,
unless his father interposes an objection. If this step is taken, however,
Robert must personally appear in court
and request permission to marry, and
this the court must grant him.

RUSSIA HOPES FOR WAR
Would   Glady   See   Japan    Embroiled
With America and General
Conflict Follow.
London, July 19.���There is still a disposition in most of the European capitals to take the American-Japanese situation rather seriously. Europe, bow-
ever, auapects that the crisla la largely
artificial, or, rather, that it Is being aggravated by a sinister manifestation
which is not entirely American nor Japanese. It la sufficiently obvious, for instance, that Russia would be only too
glad to see ber late enemy embroiled
with America. The idea held In St.
Petersburg and Berlin Is that In case of
war the Japanese would seise the Philippines and a practical deadlock would
follow for perhaps three or four years.
America would never compromise such
a quarrel, but would go to work building ships. Any time that she was ready
to strike effectively Russia would be
prepared to take her revenge also. Then
iu caae Great Britain took a hand Germany would join In the general melee
on the side of America and Russia.
This is a tine cold-blooded proposition,
but it is not worth losing sleep over.
It merely suggests that the motives of
some jlngp agitation In the press should
be closely watched.
HARD TO CONVICT.
Or. Rowland and Bride Thought Likely
to  Be  Acquitted.
Raleigh, N. C, July 19.���Despite a
strong chain of circumstantial evidence
the opinion Ib gaining ground that the
state will Und tt a matter of greatest
difficulty to secure the conviction of
Dr. David S. Rowland and his bride,
who are accused of having murdered
Mrs. Rowland's first husund last april
hy poison or other foul means.
The case has attracted widespread attention, due In part to the prominence
of Dr. Rowland, who was a leading physician with n large practice In this city.
Ills bride, whom he married six week*
ufter the death of her first husband, waa
formoi ly Mrs. Lillian si range of Omaha,
Neb. She Is a womun of both handsome
and Intellectual countenance. The eir-
cumstantlul evidence adduced .at the
preliminary Investigation tended to
show that nn Improper relationship existed between Dr. Rowland und Mrs.
Strunge for some time before the man's
death. While this Ib regarded by the
prosecution as one of the strong links
in the chain of circumstantial evtdonce,
together with the marriage of tho accused within a few weeks after the
death of Mr. Strange, the counsel for
the defence, on the other hand, declare

COURT PARTY WIN
Reactionaries in Control
of Russia
OPPRESSION BY POLICE
Revolutionary Activity Increasing:���
Government Seeks Extradition of Refofees.
St. Petersburg, July 19.���The trend of
events In Russia is rapidly growing In
Interest, and it is now possible to expose the plans of tbe court party,
which is again in full control of the
political situation. It I* fully expected
that the next Douma will also represent the popular demands for Important
reforms. Should It do so It will promptly be dissolved. Then the emperor will
issue a decree saying he has tried three
times to call the nation to his assistance, but It having proved a failure he
sees that the Empire is not ready for
that form of government and will therefore patiently await the proper time in
the future.
The revolutionary movement has become very active throughout the country, but most of the news of its development ia being suppressed successfully. The correspondent learns some
particulars from offlcitl sources which
are sufficiently alarming. The police,
who have been strengthened enormously and reorganised during the past
year, daily succeed in arresting whole
revolutionary parties throughout Russia!. Two daya ago In Moscow eleven
members of the section of Maximalists were found planning attempts
against tbe csar and the grand dukes.
The party were court-mart ialled and
two were executed. Four war organisations have been discovered and arrested. In the Baltic provinces, chiefly
in Cortland, about 100 arrests have been
made.
In a Uttle town of Nljni Novgorod
province the police learned of a revolutionary assembly which was holding
a meeting in a house. The police surrounded it ind demanded its surrender.
The people In the house answered by
firing and wounding two policemen. The
police then set fire to the house from
several sides. Some of the revolutionists tried to escape through the flames,
and two succeeded. A few were arrested but the majority remained In the
house and perished, singing revolutionary songs all the while.
The chief of police here, M. Trous-
sevitch, has started for Berlin and
Paris, where he will deal witb the question of extradition of Russian revolutionaries. It Is proposed tbst M. Trons-
Bevltch on his return will be appointed
assistant to M. VoronzolT-liashkolT, the
governor of the Caucasus, where It Is
admitted matters are most troublesome.
The authorities here are very displeased
at the mild way In which the Finish
authorities are conducting the trial of
the bomb throwers arrested In May.
According to the Finnish laws they sre
only liable to three months' Imprisonment. M. Olrard. the governor of Finland, Is away and his place Is being
filled by General Beckman, a narrow-
minded man. He visited Prime Minister
Stolypin and has promised to do all he
can to have the delinquents removed to
St. Petersburg and tried by the Russian
law, but tbe Finnish laws being very
precise on this subject it Is questionable
whether or not he will succeed.
Whole Family Dead.
Chicago. July 19.���Hdrman llllllk last
night was found guilty of killing with
poison Adolph Vrsal and five of his
children. The jury fixed the penalty at
death. Vraal and bis children all died
within a few weeks of each other under
suspicious circumstances, llllllk had
been a friend of the family for years
and In his capacity as fortune teller has
administered medicine to the children.
An Investigation allowed that Vrsal and
his children all suffered from the aame
complaint before death. Hllllk was arrested on suspicion of having been re-
-uoiislble for the deaths. The day after
c'.e arrest Mra. Vrsal committed suicide by taking poison. During tbe trial
testimony was admitted by the state
charging llllllk with having disposed of
Vrsal and children In order to collect
the life Insurance they carried Mrs.
Vrzal was shown to have been under
the Influence of Hllllk, whom i-.lie
loved, and evidence showed tliat she
had guilty knowledge of the murdering
of her husband and children by llllllk. I

Important proposition that the time had
arrived when the Wesleyan forces
throughout the world should bind themselves with a mighty band and grapple
with the great economic and social

He suggested tliat the aim of Methodists should be, in ail parts of the
world, lo deal with the questions of immigration and unemployed lahor and lo
build up a practical land society und
savings hanks, and other kindred institutions for mutual aid. Mr. Perks declared that Methodism is a vast religious freemasonry with world wide riches
and resources only wanting the proper
machinery to become a treinendous confederacy for mutual self help. No action was taken ou the proposition thus
presented hut the conference was greatly  Impressed   with  the  possibilities.

CHOATE'S PROPOSITION
American  Delegate   Suggests   Extension
of   Arbitration   Treaties to
Include All.
The Hague, July 19.���At the committee meeting yesterday morning Jos.
II. Choate. one of the American pleni-
IHitentlaries, made an Important statement or the reasons that bad Induced
the American government to propose
a general treaty or arbitration. He
said: "The dangers and mischief threatening the world froom constant preparation im war and accumulation or arms
have been somewhat mitigated by the
excellent work of the first peace conference iu lecomui.'uding arbitration to
the nations us a sulistltute let' war. and
the establishment at the Hague uf a
permanent court. Since this time gTeat
events have occurred and two terrible
wars which Inflicted untold misery upon
many nations have led to international
agreements of arbitration, separately
and in pairs, there Ib no reason why
nation* that agree by each other or two
by two should not airree all together
to exactly the same thing." Continuing,
Mr. Choate referred to the excellent
work done In this direction hy the Pan-
Amertcun conterence at Mexico City
nnd Rio Janeiro.
The Hugue, July Hi.���A statesman ot
ltisinarckinn mould, if such exists now
In Europe, would probably kill the pence

would be helped by the flagrant disconnection between its rules of procedure,
and Ihe modest, serious work that some
of lis leading members are striving to
do.   The exasperating pointleaaneai <.r
motions ruled our for committee discussions Is primarily due to Russia. Her
government clings to Its parental authority over the Czar's creation, but it
shows neither respect for Its present

Most ol' the great Kuropean powers
are convinced that anything that may
I chleved by tlie present clumsy congress could be much bettor handled
through the regular diplomatic! channels, but their recent policy hns been
to Join In a mutually Jealous conspiracy

FINANCIALREPORT
Accounts of 20,000 Club
to June 30th
CONDITIONS IMPROVING
Deficit Has Been Reduced From Last
Year and Confidence Restored
���Tasks Outlined.
Below is published the detailed statement of the 20.000 Club for the month
ending ihe 30th of June last, which waa
brought down at the recent meeting of
the executive committee. While It reveals that the club still has hard work
before it to collect the necessary funds
to carry out the important and useful
work it has in hand, the position Is
not nearly so difficult as the statement
published in another paper would make
it appear.
As shown, the club has an apparent
delicit at date or $523, 36, and the working expenses are estimated at $125 per
month, which, for six months running
this year, would make $750, or a total
to be provided by the 31st of December,
next, of $1,273.36. This form of statement is very clear and presumably the
club will continue to publish such a
one each month: the public, then having full confidence in the administration
of the affairs of the club, will respond
liberally  to appeals for assistance.   .
The value of the club cannot be overestimated but while the secretary has
ample occupation In answering correspondence, attending to visitors, and
distributing the printed matter In hand,
there is much yet in the way of advertising and issuing publications that can
be done with the greatest possible advantage.
The club In to be congratulated upon
having a building now almost ready for
occupation, which is suitable and conveniently situated and will be attractive
and useful as the public loan natural
history and mineral specimens for
proper display. This building, which is
well constructed, has cost the club
funds some $200, but is worth at least
$600; the generosity of lumber men and
others having rendered It possible to
put up such a good building so cheaply.

UNIQUE   TREATMENT.
No American Ever Welcomed by British
Like  Mark Twain.
London, July 19.���Mark Twain has
sailed and a serious word should be
said about his extraordinary month's
visit to Kngland. No foreigner has ever
been treated as he has been treated by
the English people. His welcome began as he walked down the gangplank
when the stevedores on the dock broke
into cheers. The highest and greatest
In the land had polned eargerly in all
forms of tribute to this untitled friend
of all mankind. He says himself that
the universal welcome by the masses
at every opportunity has pleased him
the most. The wonder is that a man
of 72 or any age should go through the
enormous programme of the past four
weeks and live to tell the tale. Mr.
Clemens not only lived but thrived upon
it and he goes home to write such a
chapter of his autobiography as no
other American was ever able to record.
If the truth must be told Twain's popularity In Kngland ts of a wawrmer and
more personal nature than even in bis
own country. He has won the hearts
of the Englishmen as no living writer
has done and they love to do him honor.
The cheers at his departure were of a
different note from those on his arrival,
and for once his emotion silenced him
as he waved good bye.

VISITOR'S APPRECIATION
J. T. Fife ��� Account of Wster Carnival
at Nelson on Dominion Day���
Warm Admiration.
In the course of an interview after his
return to Vancouver from a leisurely
tour J. T. Fife, who was one of the
judges of the Dominion Day water carnival, has the following to say of Nelson:
"The Dominion Day celebration at
Nelson was one of the most Imposing
celebrations that ever took place In British Columbls." continued Mr. Fife. "I
never saw anything like It. The magnificent background, unequalled for
scenic grandeur anywhere else than In
British Columbia, was played up to
splendidly. Nilsitii showed a Hue sense
of what might be called verlsmilltude,
and the show was in keeping with the
theatre which nature had provided. Tho
aquatic display baffles description
There were eighty launches In all; one
of ihem by which I was particularly
struck was nn $8,000 craft. All boats
on the lake were required to put out
lanterns, the city council having arranged for Ibis. The fineness of the
aquatic spectacle was much enhanced
by the lake steamer*, the Kootenay, the
Kuskanook, and Ihe Moyle playing their
llashlights all the time the sports were
in  progress.
"Yes, the sitorts were good. I acted
as one of the judge**. The other two
were Mr. John Langan, of Chicago, and
Captain Gore, the well known Nelson
commodore. It was a hard matter deciding to whom the prizes should be
given, but���yes. I think you may Bay
thnt our decisions gave satisfaction.
Mr. I.angan said he had never Been tho
display  equalled outside of New York.

Edmonton. July 19.-^The proposal
that the three western provinces, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia, should unite in the establishment
of a great university meets with approval from several well known educationalists here.
The suggestion was made to a gentleman prominently identified with educational affairs here and he agreed, without any hesitation, with the statement
in the article that "for many years to
come universities in the separate western provinces would be of a very primitive kind. A university in Alberta
would have but little standing and be
but little more than a big high school
without any standing in educational
circles.
"Yes, that is right," he said, "Albert*:
U not in a position yet to maintain S
university that would keep our young
men and women from attending Toronto and McGill and, from my point of
view, when we establish a university
we want one that will be the equal at
least of the best in the country. I feel
that everybody realizes that at present
this is impossible in Alberta. It is too
big an undertaking for a young province
to attempt to endow and equip a university that will attract the students of
the province away from the universities
of the east."
This gentleman further remarked that
he thought the minister of education
had overestimated the number of students a university in this province
would appeal to. He says that, even
with the presence of a university in
the province,, the attendance for the
first few years would be very limited,
especially when it is recollected that
there Is a flourishing college in existence In the province supported by a
leading religious denomination and attracting many students. The very fact
that this college would be affliliated
with a provincial university would be
a great deal more to its advantage than
the university, as tt would enjoy the
lectures of the university professors
and be enabled to secure degrees for
its students, and at the same time retain the students on its roll.
Another gentleman, a graduate of
Toronto university, favors the combined
university for the three provinces and
he uses the following argument: "Take
Toronto university for example. It is
supported by the province of Ontario���
the wealthiest province in the Dominion
���-aud yet there has never been a time
In the history of that university that
the province has beeu able to keep up
with the financial ueeds of the Institution. There has been a continual demand for funds. We must admit at
once that U Ontario finds it difficult to
support a provincial university Alberta
would find the task fifty fold more so.
I believe the combined contributions
and support of the three growing western provinces would give us a university second to none in the Dominion.
We would have three provinces contributing money to the university and the
peoplo of those provinces, once they
felt the university was able through this
combined support to furnish the funds
to supply an excellent staff and the best
equipment, would send their chldren
there to be educated. Parents are very
careful In the present day in their
choice of the university their children
nre lo attend. They want the best
their means can afford. I am sure, anil
1 have thought this matter over very
carefully, that the Albertan university
would have a hard road to tread Tor
some yenrs. 1 am loyal enough to Alberta to be anxious enough to have
this province possess a university, but
I would not want to see It with any
other than a university thnt would be
as good as the best."
These gentlemen did not commit
themselves to any particular location
for this Last West university. They
were satisfied that a central place well
suited for u university town would be
selected.

Paris, July 19.���Prince Robert de Broglie, whose marriage a year ago in Chicago with Miss Estelle Alexander, an
American, was yesterday declared void
by the French courts, will within a few
day formally notify his father, at whose
instance the marriage was annulled, of
his intention to remarry Miss Alexander
under the French law. This notice will
be served through a notary. Under the
law passed during the last session of
tho Chamber of Deputies modifying
marriage procedure in France, Robert
is free to marry at the end of 30 days,
unless his father interposes an objection. If this step is taken, however,
Robert must personally appear In court
and request permission to marry, and
this the court must grant him.

RUSSIA HOPES FOR WAR
Would    Glady    See    Japan    Embroiled
With America and General
Conflict Follow.
London, July 19.���There ts still a disposition in most of the European capitals to take the American-Japanese situation rather seriously. Europe, however, suspects that the crisis is largely
artificial, or. rather, that it is being aggravated by a sinister manifestation
which is not entirely American nor Japanese. It is sufficiently obvious, for Instance, that Russia would be only too
glad to see her late enemy embroiled
with America. The idea held in St.
Petersburg and Berlin Is that In case of
war the Japanese would seize the Philippines and a practical deadlock would
follow for perhaps three or four years.
America would never compromise such
a quarrel, but would go to work building ships. Any time that she was ready
to strike effectively Russia would be
prepared to take her revenge also. Then
in case Great Britain took a hand Germany would join in the general melee
en the side of America and Russia.
This is a fine cold-blooded proposition,
but it Ib not worth losing sleep over.
It merely suggests that the motives of
some jingo agitation in the press should
be closely watched.
HARD TO CONVICT.
Dr. Rowland and Bride Thought Likely
to   Be  Acquitted.
Raleigh. N. C, July 19.���Despite a
strong chain of circumstantial evidence
the opinion is gaining ground that the
state will find it a matter "f greatest
difficulty to secure the conviction of
Dr. David S. Rowland and his bride,
who are accused of having murdered
Mrs. Rowland's flrst husand last april
by poison or other foul means.
The case has attracted widespread attention, due In part to the prominence
of Dr. Rowland, who was a leading physician with a large practice in this city.
His bride, whom he married six weeks
after the death of her flrst husband, was
formerly Mrs. Lillian Strange of Omaha,
Neb. She Is a woman of both handsome
and Intellectual countenance. The circumstantial evidence adduced .at the
preliminary investigation tended to
show that an Improper relationship existed between Dr. Rowland and Mrs.
Strange for some time before the man's
death. While this is regarded by the
prosecution as one of the strong links
In the chnln ot circumstantial evidence,
together with the marriage of the accused within a few weeks after tbe
death of Mr. Strange, the counsel for
the defence, on the other hand, declare
that the early marriage was tn reality
the act of a man disposed to do the
honorable thing to protect the good
name of an innocent woman.

COURT PARTY WIN
Reactionaries in Control
of Russia
OPPRESSION BY POLICE
Revolutionary Activity Increasing���
Got eminent Seeks Extradition of  Refugees.
St. Petersburg, July 19.���The trend of
events in Russia is rapidly growing in
interest, and It is now possible to expose the plans of the court party,
which is again tn full control of the
political situation. It la fully expected
that the next Douma will also represent tbe popular demands for Important
reforms. Should it do so it will promptly be dissolved. Then the emperor will
issue a decree saying he has tried three
times to call the nation to his assistance, but it having proved a failure he
sees that the Empire is not ready for
that form of government and will therefore patiently await the proper time in
the future.
The revolutionary movement has became very active throughout the country, but moat of the news ot ita development is being auppressed successfully. The correspondent learns some
particulars from officio sources which
are sufficiently alarming. The police,
who have been strengthened eaprmous-
ly and reorganized during the past
year, dally succeed in arresting whole
revolutionary parties throughout Rus-
alal. Two days ago in Moscow eleven
members of the section of Maximalists were foaod planning attempts
against tho caar and the grand dukes.
The party were court-martlalled and
two were executed. Four war organizations have been discovered and arrested. In the Baltic provinces, chiefly
in Cortland, about 100 arrests have been
made.
In a little town of Nljni Novgorod
province the police learned of a revolutionary assembly which was holding
a meeting in a house. The police surrounded it and demanded its surrender.
The people in the house answered by
firing and wounding two policemen. The
police then set fire to the bouse from
several sides. Some of the revolutionists tried to escape through the flames,
and two succeeded. A few were arrested but the majority remained tn the
house and perished, singing revolutionary songs all the while.
The chief of police here, M. Trous-
sevitch, has started for Berlin and
Parts, where he will deal with the question of extradition of Russian revolutionaries. It is proposed that M. Trans-
sevitch on his return will be appointed
assistant to M Voronzoff-Dashkoff, the
governor ot the Caucasus, where It is
admitted matters are most troublesome.
The authorities here are very displeased
at the mild way in which the Finish
authorities are conducting the trial of
the bomb throwers arrested In May.
According to the Finnish laws they are
only liable to three months' imprisonment. M. Olrard. the governor of Finland, is away and his place Is being
filled by General Beckman, a narrow-
minded man. He visited Prime Minister
Stolypln and has promised to do all he
can to have the delinquents removed to
St. Petersburg and tried by the Russian
law, but the Finnish laws being very
precise on this subject tt is questionable
whether or not he will succeed.

An investigation showed that Vrsal and
his children all suffered from the same
complaint before death. Hllllk was arrested on suspicion of having been responsible for the deaths. The day after
the arrest Mrs. Vrsal committed suicide by taking poison. During the trial
testimony was admitted by the state
charging llllllk with having disposed of

BRITISH   COLUMBIA'S   TASK.
Premier Mcliridu's mission io London
hits had at least one good result that
"will be admitted even by thu tew thor-
ou^h-going supporters uf Sir Wilfrid
Laurier who still belittle his achievement, and fail even to sympathize with
his   purpose.
The people of the province are far
more nearly united now than ever before. As nearly as possible parly lines
are forgotten in determination to uphold the lights of the province, if necessary against the rest of the Dominion.
Tbe unanimity is entirely creditable to
the Liberals of British Columbia. There
fs no doubt that were tlie position re-
Versed, if a Conservative administration
In power at Ottawa were refusing justice to u Liberal government at Victoria, the Conservatives would rally to
tbe support of the provincial premier,
just as tlie best of tlie Liberals are now
unreservedly endorsing the stand taken
by  Premier   Hichard   McBrlde.
For the moment, however, the battle
Is lost. All that has been accomplished
is the saving of the right to renew the
claim. British Columbia, by the terms
decreed by Sir Wilfrid Laurler and Mr.
Fielding with tbe concurrence o! the
majority of the provincial premiers, is
to receive $1,000,000 in ten equal annual
instalments in recognition or its exceptional circumstances, Its vast territory to he administered and developed.
with physical difficulties In ihe way that
exist nowhere else in Canada.
While the province will continue to
protest and to press Its claim for more
nearly adequate provision, the task that
lies nearest Is that of intelligent and
courageous facing of the difficulties thnt
confront the province. British Columbia's population as yet Is little more
than one to every two square miles of
her area. Even of the oldest settled
parts, Vancouver Island and the Fraser
THE   DEFENCE  OF   GRAFT.
valley, the development has only begun,
and the resources are not by any means
fully known, while in the younger districts of Kootenay, Boundary, Ok.tna-
gan, Slmilkiimeen, the Thompson and
Nikola valleys, the northern coast and
the Immense northern interior, only
enough has been done to prove their In*
finite potentialities.
Criticism of past administration of
the pruvince is now idle and irrelevant.
The duty of all is to look forward, to
provide for the development of the resources of the country and its settle,
ment with a strong , virile population,
preferably with British traditions and
British Ideals.
Minerals and timber will probably
continue for a long time to be the attraction to lead pioneers Into the unsettled districts, but ttje growth of a
permanent population will depend mainly upon agriculture. hi view of the
physical difficulties of transportation
and communication, of both of which
ihe cost seems unlikely to be materially
reduced for a long time to come, It Is
highly desirable that each district
should   be   as   nearly  self-supporting as
possible.
That these conditions are fully appreciated by tbe members of the present
government is evident from the activity during the past few years of the
provincial departments of lands and
works and of agriculture. The officials
of the later, especially, have done all
lhat government officials can do In the
v ay of advising and assisting the actual
settlers on the land.
The growth of cities may well be left
to take care of ItHclf, but the agriculturists have many needs which should
be provided for as far as possible, not
only In their interest, but in the Inter-
BSt of the *^hole province. One of the
gicutest needs of the farmers In many
districts is Irrigation* a need for which
individuals can hardly provide. A commission has been appointed to Investigate and report and early action may be
looked for. It has been the aim of the
present administration to afford such
aid to the basic Industry as to enable
those engaged In It to co-operate to
ihelr mutual advantage In the matter of
improving their products, and finding
profitable markets for It.
For the present Better Terms parses
from the front of the stage. It Is a
definite issue between the province and
the Dominion which will never be settled until full justice is done.    But, In
The reply of the Liberal press to the
protest oi the whole country against the
long continued reigu ot dishonesty in
the udm ia is native departments, has
usually been that ministers are not
guilty themselves) tbat subordinates are
punished whenever they are convicted,
und that it has always been so.
Mr. Aylesworth is naturally not satisfied with that defence; his improvement
on it contains a new political doctrine.
The Mail and Empire states aud discusses tbat doctrine as follows:
Mr. Aylesworth lias given us oue of
the leasous tor the prevalence or graft
at Ottawa. He declares tbat when a
person doing business with the government charges half as much again as the
goods an*; worth the government pays
the bill ou the ground tbat it is cheaper
to pay than to dispute. Such cases, says
the minister of justice, are numerous.
But ihis explanation is not complete by
any means. There is redson to fear
that there are too many instances in
which the attitude of the ministers towards graft Is active rather than
passive.
"Certainly the laud deals indicate lhat
initiative is exercised at Ottawa. An
example is afforded iu ihe Hobins-Mc-
(Jregor transaction. In this case the
government gave Robins or McGregor
a vast area of public land on the understanding lhat the recipients were to
irrigate it, and to dispose of it to actual
settlers. The concessionaires, instead of
proceeding to improve the property,
went off to London and sold out the
grant for $500,000. Now, this was not
a *hold-up.' It was an operation in
which the government and the concessionaire took an equal part. The government was not forced to dispose of
tbe property. But it did sell it, and
il must have known that it was giving
McGregor a valuable consideration, the
proceeds of Which ought to pass to the
treasury, and not to McGregor und his
friends, It is clear that there is complicity and responsibility on the part of
the government, and that the theory of
innocent co-operation or forced acquiescence in tbe deals is therefore not applicable to al| tbe improper transactions. This is one of the provoking
causes of graft It Is because the government agrees to, If it does not actually, promote, graft that the wrong is so
successfully accomplished. There Is,
however, another reason for the prevalence of the evil, and that Is the attitude of a section of the press. During
the past few weeks the church courts
have protested against the wrongs.
One section of the press has concealed
these protests.1' As an example, there is
the case of the Toronto Globe.    Instead

of backing up the General Assembly of
the Presbyterian church In its campaign against public immorality, instead oi supporting thai body lu its
noble protest against the crime of graft,
winch one member has pronounced to
be even more destructive of morals than
intemperance, the organ minimizes the
snuggle for better things, and treats
the great church court wiih indilTet-
ence. The only allusion made b> the
organ to the efforts of tbe assembly to
bring this matter io the attention of
the public, and to promote reform Is of
ths nature of u defence of grail. The
general assembly is told that there are
no proofs of wrongdoing, and that a
"yellow dog could not be convicted on
any of the evidence that has been laid
be lore committees!"'
While public men like Mi. Aylesworth are excusing grail on the plea that
it is cheaper to consent to a hold-up'
than to fight, while the government is
handing out huge concessions, nnd while
a portion of the press is defending graft
and is refusing to give such Important
bodies as the General Assembly any assistance In the work of reform, how can
we expect that public Immorality will
be brought to an end? Graft flourishes
because immoral ideas hold sway in the
council of the nation, and because the
people of the churches do not receive
the support in their campaign against
evil to which they are entitled."

in the Immediate future. Nelson is

While the Nelson eleven hud a decisive superiority over the teams it has
recently played It Is a superiority acquired by practice and self sacrifice as
the game is not a money maker and is
strictly amateur. Nelson should have
a fair chance at the coast if Its best

Platinum in Tulameen.
Grand Forks, July 19.���A prominent
mining man arriving here today from
the Slmilkameen district, speaks enthusiastically about the recent rich find
of platinum in the upper Tulameen district. He corrobrates previous re|>orts
regarding the great magnitude of thit-i
rich discovery and says that the whole
district is now fairly swarming with
prospectors who are going to take up
locations in this new mining paradise.
He also states that one small group of
claims which was only recently staked
was sold to a Colorado company for
$85,000. He also states that the greatest drawback to the opening up of that
rich section of country is that there is
such a great scarcity of feed for horses,
and he strongly recommends that parties
going into that uart should pack enough
feed along with them.
CANADA A   BIG PROBLEM.
American Secretary of Commerce Warni
Pacific Coast.
Seattle, July 19.���Secretary of Commerce and Labor Straus said yesterday
that the tide of immigration is changing, particularly from the Oriental
countries, and is turning toward Canada.
"In the last three months," said the
secretary, "the number of Immigrants
coming into the United States through
all points has decreased ler." per cent.,
while immigration into Canada has increased. Canada is a wonderful country
and is going to be one of the biggest
problems you men of the Pacific coast
will have to face In the future."
