FEAR ��NERSr STRIKE
Neither   Operators    Nor   Operatives    in
Central    District   Will    Renew
Wage  Agreement.
Indianapolis, Intl., Feb. 27.���Coal operators of Western Pennsylvania, Ohio.
Indiana and Illinois, composing the
Central competitive field, assembled in
conference today with the national officers of the United Minn Workers of
America anal the district officers of the
sam,- territory lai decide whether a jaaiiit
conference of miners anal operators
shall be called to re-establish the interstate waga- agreement.
The wage agra-emi'iit which has been
In force for three years past will expire
by limitation the lirst of April. Efforts
lo bring about its rem.wai have so far
bea.ii unsuccessful. When the joint conference met laa-ra- ilia* latter part of January It found il Impossible to accomplish any definite results, The miners
were inclined to bold out for an increase in waga-s and several important
nioilitla'atianis in the eondltiians of labor. The operators, on the otter hand,
contended thai the prevailing depression In all Una's of Industry and the decreased earnings of the mining companies rendered It impossible to grant an
Increase In wages. Tbi' operators hinted, moreover, lhat present conditions
would Justify a cut rather than an Increase in wages. In this frame of mind
the operators anal the miners adjourned
lhe conference without canning to auy
understanding.
Since the January conference adjourned the operators and miners of
several stales bave discussed the question anal in most instances have practl-
callp agreeal to make some mutual concessions. As a consequence tin.re is an
linprovi'd prospect fur a re-establish-
ineni of the Joint relations that have
existed during the past three years. Tin.
wage sciiia- conference will in ail probability be called to assemble next
month, either in this city or in Chicago.

TURKEY PREFERS FIGHT
Sultan Will Face War Rather Than Surrender Sovereignty of
Macedonia.
Vienna, Feb. 27.���The Austrian foreign ollice highly approves the friendly
attitude of Britain as reviewed in the
speeches yesterday of Sir Edward Grey,
secretary of foreign affairs, in the
House of Commons, and Lord Fitzinaur-
lce, under secretary of foreign affairs,
in the House of Lords, but points out
that should the suggestion seriously be
made of appointing practically a permanent governor of Macedonia by the signatory powers, lt would expose the European concert to the severest strain,
since it fs believed that Turkey would
rather risk a war than virtually yield
to the sovereignty of Macedonia.
The Neue FYeue Presse reminds its
readers that Baron Von Aerenthal, the
Austrian foreign minister, recently
condemned as a dangerous step the
idea of appointing an Independent governor. The governor sees danger of
Great Britain's attitude in encouraging
the Balkan states to take up the cause
of their national interests.
PLOT WASJHOESPREAD
Murderer   of   Priest    Taken     Back   to
Denver���Similar Attempt in
Chicago Frustrated.
Denver, Colo., Feb. 27.���Gulseppe
Alio, who killed Father Heinrichs at communion services In St. Elizabeth's
church here last Sunday, was brought
back from Colorado Springs early today, whither he had been taken to prevent lynching. Accompanied by four detectives from Denver and closely handed Alio rode the entire trip with head
averted and silent. Upon arrival here
he was taken to a waiting cab and driven to the county Jail. Barring newspapermen, depot employees and passengers arriving on the train, there were
but few persons at the union station
to witness his arrival and no demonstration of any kind occurred.* According to Alio's statement, made to an Interpreter, he will plead guilty when arraigned and offer no defence for his
crime. In this case lt is expected bis
trial will come to a speedy end and
sentence be pronounced.
Chicago, Feb. 27.���A plot to murder a
Chicago priest at the altar of his church,
just as Father Leo Heinrichs of Denver
was slain, was hatched in Chicago, and
frustrated almost by chance, according
to the Rev. Father W. M. Dunne, chancellor of the archdiocese. This information was given out by Father Dunne
yesterday to prove further his contention that the murder in St. Elisabeth's
church in Denver was planned by anarchistic anti-clericals ln Chicago. The
murder In Denver was similar In every
respect to the one planned several
months ago in which the Rev. Father
lleseuello, pastor of St. Roche church
at Chicago Heights, was to be the vie*
time.
Father Dunne will hold a conference
tomorrow with United States chief or
police Shlppey, asking for certain arrests, and another with United States
District Attorney Sims and Col. James
Stuart, chief of tlie post offlce Inspectors, looking towards the prosecution of
editors of Italian newspapers in which
denunciatory diatribes against the clergy
of the city are made. Charges of criminal libel may be made. Father Reseu-
ello was for a time Chancellor Dunne's
assistant at the Guardian Angel (Italian)
church.
The first information of the planned
Chicago assassination was given Father
Reseuello from a man in Chicago
Heights. The name of the man Is hold
n secret by Father Dunne who claims
that should their Information be known
he would be found dead with a dozen
knives In him before 24 hours had
passed. The information secured from
the writer of the letter as lo how tiie
priest was to lie killed was given to
I.. N. Hook, mayor of Chicago Heights,
and the police were notified. The men
picked for the assassination ln some
manner got wind of the prospective arrest and disappeared. Still fearing thnt
harm might come to the church two
days later Mayor Hook Issued a permit
for Father Reseuello to carry a revolver.
HAVE NO APPLES
Comparison of British and
Colonial Fruit
C. W. BUSK'S OPINIONS
Kootenay Growers Would Be Ashamed
of Mother Country's Product���
Contempt for Pruning.
An Interesting comparison of British
and American methods of fruit growing
ls afforded by the experiences of a
Kootenay man now ln England.
Canada, including British Columbia,
has followed American methods and is
therefore interested in the comparison
of results, which, on thiB occasion, seem
to be entirely against the mother country and in favor of the younger nations.
The comparison is made by one who
is well known in Nelson, and who will
not be accused of prejudice In favor of
things  colonial.
Capt- D. C. McMorrls has received a
letter from C. W. Busk, who is now ln
London, in which the following passages
occur:
"I have not seen an apple that we
would allow to be seen in Nelson since
I have been in London. They don't
know what an apple is.
"I am going hy appointment on Tuesday to the Duke of Bedford's experimental fruit farm. His manager told
me the other day that 'any cah driver
can plant an apple tree,' and bis theory
ls that you can get better commercial
results from a totally unpruned tree. I
am going to spend next Tuesday with
him in his orchard in order to be convinced."
Mr. Busk promises to write again
giving the results of his visit to the unpruned experimental orchard.
He speaks of meeting Martin Bur*
rell, R. M. Palmer and T. G. Earl, all of
whom were too busy at their own
special tasks to accoumaj-v  him.
He was to be driven to the Duke of
Bedford's estate in a motor car by M. S.
Davys.
LONG   LOST   TREASURES.
Norway   Sooa   to   Recover   It.   Ancient
Corronation Regalia.
Bergen, Norway, Feb. 27.���Norway Is
about to recover Its long-lost medieval
coronation regalia and also a number
of priceless treasures belonging to the
cathedral of Trondhjem.
When ln 1537 the great reformation
menaced the Catholic church ln Norway
Archbishop Olav Ingebretsson fled from
Stenviksholm castle, near Trondhjem,
to Holland, taking with him various cathedral treasures, together with the ancient coronation regalia. Archbishop
Ingebretsson died In 1528, and after a
protracted law suit the treasures passed
into the possession of Frederick III.
palatinate elector, a descendent of whom
now occupies the throne of Bavaria, in
which country the archbishop's archives
were discovered. Now, after the lapse
of more than three and a half centuries,
these objects have been acquired by the
Norwegian government and are to be
placed among the state archives. Director Grosch, of the Industrial Art museum ln Chrlstlania will soon go to Bavaria to get highly-prized articles, the
acquisition of which has been greeted
with the utmost pleasure and Interest
throughout this country.
QUEBEC CABINET SHUFFLE.
Change. Understood to  Be Dictated by
Sir Wilfrid Laurier.
Montreal. Feb. 27.���Several Important
changes will shortly take place in Quebec political circles. It has been practically settled Ihat Hon. Arthur Boyer
will succeed Sir Louis Jette as Lieutenant-Governor of Quebec. A delegation from Montreal which went to Ot-
tuwa to press the appointment of Mr.
Boyer. has received the assurance of
Sir Wilfrid Laurier that Mr. Boyer will
get the position, and lt is expected
that the appointment will be gazetted
at an early date and that Mr. Boyer
will be the Lieutenant-Governor when
tho great historical celebration is held
at Quebec next year. Mr. Boyer, who
Is a lifelong Llbernl, was for a time a
member of the famous Mcrcler Cabinet
without portfolio. He Is a very wealthy man. aud will thus be in a position
to do the honors of the ofllce.
A shuffle ln thu  cabinet is also  Im
minent, and It is expected that the
changes will be announced shortly alter the legislature meets, at the beginning of next month. Premier Gouin will
remain at the head of the government
for the present at least, but Mr. Ade-
lard Turgeon, who has ben regarded
as the strong man of the administration, but who came Into prominence ln
connection with certain lawsuits, will
retire and will be appointed to the Dominion senate, to replace P. A. Cbo-
quette, who will be appointed police
magistrate of Quebec, in place of the
present Incumbent, Judge Chaveau, who
will be retired on pension. It ls not
yet known who will succeed Mr. Turgeon   ln  the  cabinet.
Montreal's Undesirables.
Montreal, Feb. 27.���A large number
of Italians tried to rush the recorder's
court today, when a number of their
countrymen were up before Recorder
Weir for sentence on the charge of
carrying concealed weapons. When the
police ordered tbe mob to move on, one
Italian refused to move and was arrested. On his person was found a large
dirk concealed in his stockings. He
will appear before the recorder tomorrow. Eight Italians were charged with
carrying concealed weapons. Four of
them were fined $50 and costs or, 50
days hard labor, one was discharged
and the others remanded for sentence.
All those convicted were also ordered
to give their own bonds of $250 to be on
good behavior for a year and to procure
a bondsman for the same amount each
or go to prison for an additional three
months. Ten minutes after their countrymen had 1, tn sentenced in the recorder's court for carrying concealed
weapons four Italians met tn an hotel
opposite the court house and fn angry
tones are s id to have discussed the
sentence an! one ol them with a knife
In his hand raised his arm and swore
to kill Recorder Weir. Detectives made
their appea-ance, however, and the man
made his a   cape.

Principal, of Nelson Schools Placed on
Equality With Other Teachers
of Province.
The chief event of the school board
meeting held last night and this afternoon was the granting of increases of
salary to Principals Fraser and Sullivan, of the h:gh and public schools.
The board met at 8 o'clock with R.
G. Joy in the chair, and Dr. Arthur, A.
D. Emory, W. Irvine and R. J. Steel
also present. Th. m.-tutes of the last
regular and special meetings were read
and adopted.
The financial committee reported the
payrolls and accounts which were passed and ordered paid.

held for future use.
The secretary also reported that he
had replied verbally to the request of
tbe finance committee of the city council for further details of tbe year's estimates.

No Ruthenian Ablegate.
Ottawa. Feb. 27.���A report from Winnipeg of the local Ruthenians that a
bishop will be appointed for the Roman
Catholics of the west Is true, but lt Is
not true that wllv reside In Ottawa and
have any power life Mgr. Sbarettl, papal
ablegate hero. The case will simply be
that of a Ruthenian with the ordinary
powers of a bishop who will reside
among his own people ln the usual way.

Canada'.  High  Credit.
Montreal, Feb. 27.���A special London
cable says the Canadian government
$15,000,000 loan, which closed today nt
the Bank of Montreal, Is over subscribed. Small subscribers aro allotted ln
full and others get 67 per cent, of the
amount applied for. The result Ib a
surprise to the market which has not
hitherto realized that Canada's credit
stands sufficiently high to make a success of such an Issue of stock at par,
even under more favorable market conditions.
Actual subscribers to tho Grand
Trim railway's new $5,000,000 loan
amount to $7,500,000.
SELL TO GERMANY
Suggested Disposition of
Philippioes
BRITAIN DOESN'T KIND
Paris Sustaining Reputation as Point
of Origin *>f International
Sensations.
Paris, Feb. 27.���The following statements are forwarded with all reservations, but they represent an opinion
as to the real objective of the American fleet ln the Pacific which is actually
entertained at this moment to the satisfaction or dissatisfaction of high diplomatic circles ln Europe.
With a claim to definite knowledge
of the subject, It ia affirmed than an
understanding exists between the Washington administration and the German
government whereby Germany will purchase tbe Philippines on a basis of tha
payment of the amount heretofore paid
by the United States as Indemnity to
Spain, plus all American expenditure
in the islands since the American government took possession ot them. The
fleet will go to Manila as a precautionary measure ln case Japan should become Irritated when the deal is disclosed. The United States will retain a
coaling station ln the Philippines.
It is explained that Germany's latest
loan, recently negotiated, is to provide
funds for this purchase. England's attitude fa represented as noncontentlons.
She would much prefer that America,
should retain tbe islands, but if sovereignty is to change, she doesn't wish
Japan to obtain a foothold further south
which would Increase the immigration
dangers and troubles of Australia.
An eminent diplomat discussed the
foregoing with an American on the assumption that lt was a virtually accomplished fact. In reply to the obvious
question, "How can the Washington administration deliver the goods, even lt
it agreed to do so?" he said: "Of course,
I know it will require the assent of con
gress and the approval of public opinion
also. It is notorious that America ls
sick and tired ot the Philippines, and
would be glad to get rid of them. The
American people are far too lacking in
patience even to be content to await
the fruition of colonial enterprise, na
matter how great Ita future value.
Roosevelt's influence is quite sufficient
to obtain popular assent at the proper
moment for the sale to Germany. He
has only to array the fact and figures
showing tbat these islands are nothing
but a hopeless drain on tbe national
treasury, and to accompany his statistics with one of his great pbilllppics to
congress. The thing would go through
with a ruch. That, at least, is what we
expect to happen."
The speaker, after referring to Ger**
niany's policy dealing with natives ln
her colonies, added, "If the Germans get
the Philippines, God help tbe Fillp-
plnos."
GIVE  UP  ALASKAN   RIDE.
New York to Paris Automobile Riders
Seek   Easier   Route.
Chicago, Feb. 27.���Northern Siberia
and Alaska may be eliminated from the
route of the New York to Paris automobile race as a result of the failure of
the cars to go through Indiana snowdrifts under their own power. A plan
ls no wunder consideration to take the
automobiles by boat from San Francisco to Japan, motor through Japan, take
another boat to Vladivostock, and then
run down the Russian post roads by the
side of the Siberian railway the 8,000
miles to Paris.
The discussion of the new plan was
taken up at the Chicago Automobile
club last night soon after the arrival
of the French and Italian cars. A conference will be held today to determine what should be done. One of the
main reasons for the change ls tbe fact
that the delay between New York and
Chicago has made it Impossible to reach

PUBLIC      EXPENDITURE.
The complaint of minorities. In parliament and legislatures that they are ill-
treated in the matter of public expenditure, that the constituencies they represent receive less consideration from
the government than those thai return
Its supporters, ls almost as old as representative government in Canada. Unfortunately there has often been just
ground  for complaint.
Of course, the ideal system would he
the appropriation of money for every
necessary public work without reference to election results, past or prospective, llut there is never money available for all necessary work and thu
variation of degrees of necessity Is infinite, it is Inevitable, humanly speaking, that thu Importunate representative should frequently obtain more for
bis UicaSlly than one less aggressive,
lt ls a further unfortunate feature of
Canadian politics lhat the first thing
that occurs to a member seeking reelection is to point to the number ��f
public works in the riding hu has _en
the nn an.-, of securing, and the imnouul
of public money that has been expended
upon them.
These features of Canadlaij politics
are slckeningly familiar to every Canadian who iB old enough to \,ete, and he
Ib an optimist In deed who can dream
that he sees any sign of Improvement.
The disease has even permeated municipal politics In the large cities divided
Into many wards.
Specific complaints are being made
now ln the legislature as to the apportionment of money for the various constituencies of the province. Without detailed knowledge of the necessities in.
each case one cannot rationally elther-
uttack or defend. One Instance, however, which  has   been  particularly  se
lected as a mark for ridicule, offers an
obvious justification. The riding of
Kichmond happens to be represented by
Hon. Mr. Cotton, president of the council, and it has received a large apportionment. To the professional member
of the opposition that is sufficient evidence of corporation. But it should be
remembered that when ail districts can
honestly plead necessities, and all cannot be satisfied, the respective contributions to Uie revenue are considered.
We do not dufend tills. We state lt as
a fact. It has heen a. custoui l'or many
years. On this score Richmond, which
includes the suburbs of Vancouver cily,
where a very large amount has recently
heen realized from government land,
can easily justify iis claim to improvements, indeed they represent thu fulfilment of an Implied undertaking to
the purchasers who paid high prices.
It may further be permissible to ex-
amiuu tlu> record of the complainants.
The "spoils" doctrine has heen frankly
advocated by most Liberals as a part
of their political faith. Mr. Bergeron
lately told a Neisou audience how Dominion, government money is spent iu
Quebec The recital wus amusiug but
every statement was true, has, iu fact,
been proved.
It is nol many years since a very
prominent Liberal, au ex-provincia! pru-
iiiier���since* deceased���in a bye-eleciion
Vll O&t&rlo, invited the electors to choose
between the "warm sympathy shown to
couslit uuueies that return supporters,
and Uie cold justice meted out to opposition." These words, which no self-
respecting democracy can ever afford to
forgive, were uttered on the authority
of Sir Wilfrid Laujier and have never
been repudiated or apologized for.
Whatever show of justice there may
be ln complaints from the general public of a neglected district, if there be
any such, Ihe professional apologists of
the Liberal party should for shame's
sake refrain.
PAARDEBERG  DAY.
In every city and town in Canada
where there is a military organization
there will be a commemoration today
in some form of the anniversary of the
llattle of Paardeberg. Although lt will
not rank as one of the decisive battles
of history, heing, ln fact, merely an incident in a march tbat could only be
triumphant,   Paardeberg  must  ever he
memorable in British military annals as
the first flght by a truly Imperial army,
ln which Canadians, Australians, New
Zealandcrs and men from the Cape
fought side by side with the regulars
from the home islands. The importance
ol' Paardeberg lay in its lessons to the
world that the British Empire Is a reality, and that its foes must face not only
thu inhabitants of the two historic
islands but a world wide federation of
lieu peoples with common laws, speech,
ialeals and purposes.
EDITORIAL COMMENT.
The result of the voting on the bylaw to extend nn essential privilege to
the Canada Zinc company will be known
a lew hours after The Canadian ls ln
the hands of its readers. Defeat ls Inconceivable, but It is earnestly to be
hoped that the vote will be large and
representative enough to show Nelson's
appreciation of the enterprise and tbe
opportunity ahead of the city and district.

Dalcd January 8th, 1908.        GkorseH. Hunt
London, Feb. 27.���The affairs of Richard AtklnBon, described us a gentleman,
of Uoyton hotel, St. James' place, and
elsewhere, disclosed in the court of
bankruptcy on Wednesday ��4,029 owing to unsecured creditors, and no assets.
The debtor stated that upon attaining
his majority in December, 1903, he became entitled to ��80,000 under the will
of his great grandfather, who died ln
1866. The income from tbe estate was
about ��3,000 a year, but that was insufficient   for  his   expenditure.
When he was told of his inheritance
a sum of ��1,000 was placed to his
credit in a bank, but tbat evaporated In
a week.
He was not subsequently allowed to
touch large sums, but raised money by
buying furs and jewlry to the value of
thousands of pounds and pawning them.
The tradesman who supplied the goods
had been paid by the trustees.
The debtor had settled ��8,000 upon
his mother, with reversion to himself,
and �� 60,000 upon trustees, who bad
full discretion as to what they could
do  with   the   interest.
On one occasion, the debtor Btated,
he was supplied with two sets of furs
at ��250, and having raised ��30 upon
them,  went away to  Germany.
On his return he found that police
court proceedings had been taken
against him, and he went to Brixton for
a day or two. The furs, however, were
redeemed.
He was arrested in Paris in connection with the purchase of jewelry, but
was acquitted of the charge, and on
a third occasion he was arrested In Tunis for a debt of ��45, but was released upon payment of the claim.

Irish  Cabman  Captured  Fare by  Force
���Had to  Meet Competition.
London, Feb. 27.���A truly Irish condition of affairs was revealed ln the
prosecution of a cabman named William Whiston at Kingstown, Dublin. He
was charged with forcibly placing an
aged lady, Mrs. Crossthwaite, in his cab,
and compelling her to hire him.
A gardener employed by Mrs. Crossthwaite said that on Jan. 25 he saw Whiston driving up to his mistress's house
with his cab. Having been told by the
lady herself that she did not want him
that day, Whiston drove away; but he
returned, and a little later the gardener
saw him driving down the road with
Mrs. Crossthwaite In the cab. She had
her head out of the window and was
shouting loudly, "Stop, stop!" The cabman paid no heed. Mrs. Crossthwaite
did not get back until late that evening.
A cabman named McOulnness, who
gave corroborative evidence, stated on
cross-examination that Mrs. Crossthwaite frequently went for drives and
tbe cabman first to arrive at her home
was employed.
Asked If It were true that he had
slept outside her residence ln his cab
overnight on a few occasions with the
Queen's Hotel.

Families in Want.
There are a dozen families in Nelson
in necessitous circumstances. Most of
them are large families with young
children. Their necessities are due to
illness of parents and resulting enforced
unemployment. It is for them that the
three trustees of the Pythian Sisters
are arranging an afternoon tea and evening reception on Monday. The evening
reception is for men. The nature of the
programme is kept as a pleasant surprise. The ladies hope by this means
to realize enough to keep those who
are ln  want from  Immediate suffering.

The programme will include athletic
exhibitions, Including several boxing
matches, as wel] as speeches, songs and

Land Advertisement.
The council of the Nelson board of
trade is in conference this afternoon
with local dealers in real estate, especially in fruit lands, for the consider
atlon of a very important problem. II
ls well known that there are in the alis-
trlcts surrounding Nelson large tracLs
of magnificent orchard land. It is also
well known that within the same area
there are large tracts of absolutely bar-
ron rock. The problem ls to prevent
the use of testimonials as to the wealth
of good land in efforts to sell rock. Most
of the offences to which the board's attention has been called have been committed by outside companies, but the
effect upon the clly and district will ba-
none the less disastrous If they are allowed to continue. The board of trade
can only warn purchasers to Investigate
first. One remedy suggested is a real
estate board which could easily obtain
knowledge of Buch advertisements anil
denounce, ln time to prevent fraud, all
those that are flagrantly dishonest.
