Emperor Nicholas Fears Further Opposition on Account of Solidarity of Army.
St. Petersburg, June 2.S.���The campaign which the opposition elements in
parliament, are waging to compel Emperor Nicholas to dismiss the Goremykin cablret and accept the principle of
a responsible ministry promises soon
to be crowned with success. Bat the
emperor and the court are being frightened into surrender, less by the violent
attacks made on the governmenl In the
lower house, than the alarming spread
of revolutionary disaffection among the
troops. When the 1'rodrejensky regiment, his majesty's own, pronounced its
solidarity with parliament ami its agrarian programme iu the big camp of the
guard regiments at Ktasnoeselo, less
than a dozen miles from I'eterhof, the
emperor's eyes opened and the court
began lo realize that there was only a
step from that to declaring allegiance
to parliament as against the government.

public opinion, after finding ihe army
infected with the revolutionary propaganda. Is shown in the hurried grant of
a new trial to seven men condemned
to death at Riga, the acquit Inl of six
others and the commutation, of tbo
death sentence imposed on the three
murderers of the foreman of the l'ttti-
loff works. Thi* news from the provinces shows that a state of general anarchy is growing. The efforts of the

Tho only conservative group in the
lower house of parliament, headed by
Hoyden, has at last bowed before the
Storm of radicalism, and has declared
in favor of practically the whole of the
constitutional democrats' agrarian program. Including the expropriation of
stale, church, crown and private lands,
insisling only on their distribution into
private holdings, and not their parti-
llotunont on the lease system,
Tho agrarian scheme drawn up for
the governmenl by M. SllehlnsUy. minister of agriculture, Is now completed}
but has not been finally approved. It
ami rejects the principal of expropriation, but contains enormous concessions
from the program announced by Pret
mter Goremykin three weeks ago by
providing lor lhe distribution of all
lands belonging to tne state In European Russia, but neither the crown
lands belonging to the emperor, nor the
lands belonging to the members of tho
imperial family or the church aro included In it.
The interest of the legal fraternity
has been elicited in reference to recent
changes in the rules of the supreme
court which have been made to facili-
late tint transaction of supreme court
business in certain actions when a supreme court judge is not present. The
rules of the supreme court proclaimed
In force in March last conferred upon
county court judges the power to act
In several supreme couri matters and
proceedings, but this power was not
conferred by new rules issued some
time later. The omission caused great
inconvenience and expense to litigants,
especially in the interior of the province. The attention of the governmenl
was drawn to the matter particularly
by the Nelson Bar Association, with
the result that the government has
again conferred upon county court
judges the authority to act in various
matters properly belonging to the supreme court.
'ine rule of court conferring and defining the powers is granted as follows:
Notice is hereby given that under the
powers conferred by section 10S of

New York, June 28.���The coroner's
inquest and the meeting of the grand
Jury today, both to formally name the
murderer of Stanford While, divided
public Interest today with the developments of yesterday, when an Insanity
commission declared Harry K. Thaw
sane, aud Mrs. Thaw vleited her husband in his cell tn the Tombs prison.
There was much speculation today as
to just what position Mrs. Thaw would
take when she appeared before the
grand jury today. It was asserted that

Mrs. Thaw has told a most intimate
friend that she would refuse to say
anything, no matter how important the
questions Mr. Not I or Mr. Oarvin might
put to her. This assertion is said to
have been brought from Mrs. Thaw by
the intention of the district attorney's
office to make her a witness for tha

Success of Dominion Day Program Requires Only the Usual Queen
City Weather.
Preparations for the big two days'
celebration of Dominion Day are now
well in hand, and probably the only
work for the general meeting to be
held in the city hall tomorrow night
will be to receive final reports of committees that all is well.
The work of stringing the cross wires
for the extra illumination began this
morning, and J. A. Irving, chairman of
the decoration committee, states that
it will be completed by Saturday night.
M. R. Thompson and O. \V. Uartlett,
of the finance committee, are collecting
the subscriptions already promised." It
the weather proves favorable, it Is expected that the subscriptions and gate
receipts together will cover all expenses and leave the equipment for extra street lighting as a permanent nc-
qulsitlon obtained without expense to
the city.
The fireworks will be set off from tho
bluff under the supervision of Chief
Deasy, of the fire department.
The list of sporting attractions is
probably the most varied and comprehensive ever prepared for such a celebration in Nelson.
Altogether the arrangements aro as
nearly perfect as may be. and If only
the usual Queen City weather prevails,
the celebration of Dominion Day for
lO'ii) will be at least the equal of any of
its predecessors of the Inst 10 years.
Favorable Accounts  from   All   Sections
Confirm Expectations of Good
Winnipeg, June 2S.���One hundred and
sixty agents of tlie 0. P. R. stnt reports
yesterday to the mineral superintendent regarding the condition of the grain
nnd In all these acounts there was not
ono complaint of bad weather or unsatisfactory conditions. Every where
the account Is the same, grain rapidly
growing and on the point of heading
out for a splendid yield of wheat.
At Indian Head the growth Is said to
be a week in advance of that of last
year, and In all parts of the country It
la safe to say that tho crop is a full
woek earlier than in 1905 at the same
period. Moisture is abundant and fine
warm wenther prevails.
Between Winnipeg and the Swift Current section I here are thirty-eight reporting sections, every one of which
give favorable accounts of the condition
of the grain.
Ottawa, Juno 88.���The Laurier government endured a somewhat rude jar
when It was defeated upon the Grand
Trunk Pacific branch lines hill. New
Hrunswick members have been strenuously insisting upon the construction
of the line to St. John, while Hon. Mr.
Kmmerson has just as consistently contended that there was a moral obligation on the part of the G. T. P. to build
such a branch line. The New Brunswick members) were not satisfied with
the minister's assurance, and insisted
upon inserting a clause providing for
such a branch. Despite ihe opposition
of the government, the amendment carried by 44 to 20. There was great
amusement in the house over this government defeat. The government was
facetiously asked if it intended to resign, and Hon. Mr. Fielding replied
that the only thing the government
would do would be to discipline the Liberals.
Hon. Mr. Fielding gives notice of a
bill to repeal tbe act of last session j
granting a pension of $'J,50t) per annum
to ex-cabinet ministers who have previously held a portfolio for five years.
This is the sum total of all the wrestlings which the cabinet has had upon
this question since the opening of the
session. At one time it was suggested
that the government might propose to
parliament to adopt the British plan
whereby an ex-cabinet minister who declares that he has not sufficient income
to maintain himself and his family in
comfortable circumstances is placed
upon the pension list. The matter is
one entirely between the British prime
minister and the applicant, although
the number of grants each year is limited. Sir Wilfrid Laurier, however, declared a few weeks ago when this question was under discussion that he
would not assume the responsibility of
deciding who should or who should not
amongst ex-cabinet ministers be the recipients of pensions. Since then the
cabinet has been repeatedly endeavoring to find a satisfactory solution of
the problem, but without success, until
finally it. has heen decided upon to wipe
out the pension system altogether.
The government tried to crowd
through the house a bill to increase the
capital stock of the Bell Telephone
Company by twenty millions. Strong
opposition developed. Premier Laurier,
realizing that unless he receded from
his position with respect to the bill,
lhat there was prospect of a day being
lost, finally had to give way. Mr. Mac-
Lean, of South York, had intimated
that unless the house first knew what
the government's proposals were, he
would take up a few days In reading
to the house evidence taken before the
telephone commission last fall. This tip
was effective, as, when the house resumed in the afternoon. Sir Wilfrid undertook to let the third reading of the
bill stand until the government's proposal had been considered. This was
satisfactory to tho opposition, and the
bill then passed through the committee
sl age.
Quite a discussion took piece on the
Macintosh divorce bill, and there wore
certain citations from the evidence
which practically cleared the galleries
of the usual quota of ladies. Messrs.
Galllher, Lancaster and others spoke
energetically against the bill, declaring
the preamble not to have been proven,
but finally the bill passed.
The Sunday observance bill was
again up in the commons yesterday.
The clause prohibiting shooting at targets  was under discussion.
U. L. Borden and Sam Hughes wanted to know why shooting of live animals was not prohlblted-
Aylesworth suggested that    if    they
wanted an amendment  to that    effect
they could so move.
Armand Lavergne moved to have the
out altogether.    Motion
Registrar T. M. Bowman hns completed his task of taxing the bill of
costs in the case of Star vs. White, the
celebrated Slocan Star lateral rights
case, which occupied the time of the
supreme court for over a year, and was
twice argued in Nelson,
Particulars of the registrar's decision
were obtained from one of the solicitors in the case. J. O'Shea and R, S.
I^ennie respectively attended tho taxation in the Interests of the plaintiffs
and defendants.
The total of the bill as presented was
$23,7711.52. The amount allowed by the.
taxing officer is $IS,:;S5.GC.
There are many appeals from the
registrar's decisions, and the whole
case has been apj>ealed to the full court
and is set down for trial in October.

Sunt Hughes then moved an amendment to prohibit not only shooting nt

II. L. Borden then moved that there
should be no shooting of any kind on
Sunday that would disturb persons in

The  usury bill  passed   the  bunking.
The Nelson street cars have made a
profit for one week of operation. During the week ending June 24th the receipts amounted to $174,110. In addition
the city is receiving $20 a month for
an advertisement displayed on the cars,
which may fairly be credited to the
earnings of the system, making about
$179 for last weok.
As the weekly expense of operation,
Including repairs, insurance and all
contingent expenditure, Is only $175,
tbe result for the week Is a small balance on the credit side.
It is not enough to lead to any expectations of dividends, but it is matter for gratification as showing that the
general conditions in the city are Improving, and because it is the first time
since the operation of the service began.
The receipts are nearly double those
of the corresponding week of last year,
when they amounted to only $87.45. The
receipts for 1900 to date are $2,310.40,
against $2,440.60 to the same date of
Allowing for  the period of  idleness
in the winter of the current year, the
��� improvement In the returns amounts to
nearly CO per ceut.
There Is a possibility that the deficit
of over $2,000 provided for iu the city
council's estimates for the current year
will be wiped out, and almost a certainty that It will be considerably reduced.
These results are sufficient justification, if any wero needed, for the recent
small increase of pay granted to. the
motormen and conductors. The service
is now efficient and popular, and by the
time cheaper power Is obtainable from
the city plant, it may also be profitable.

Our esteemed morning contemporary
waxed facetloua on Tuesday, and no
doubt satisfied its sense of humor in
tin' Following editorial production:
"We are reminded thai ten years ago
Canadian electors were being told with
almoBt tearful eloquence that ruin
would overtake tbe Dominion should
those pestiferous grita get eoiiin.il of
the government. One can still heai the
lamentations ol tbe old war horse of
Cumberland as be predicted to awestruck audiences the dosing down of
every factory in the land. And George
Hulas Foster, too, drew on his Imagination ami told ui the soup kitchens thai
would be opened In every city, and of
the rush of Canadian born citizens to
secure means of livelihood in the country to the south ol us."
As one word IjiIiik^ on another, we
nlso aro reminded that tbe countrr was
faithfully  \v;i rued  against  the suicidal
policy proposed for adoption by Sir Wilfrid Laurler when he was seeking tbe
suffrages of the people some ten years
ago.    We remember  that  Sir  Wilfrid
said in his campaign speeches throughout Canada  thai he  would never resl
till he had wiped out of existence the
last vestige of the iniquitous system ����r
protection,    it  was  because   of    this
threat, for it was more a threat than a
promise, thai  the old Cumberland war
horse and Mr. Foster sounded the note
of warning quoted above.   And the old
war horse and Mr. Foster were right
If Sir  Wilfrid   Laurier  had  been   permitted \�� carry out his threat, the very
tilings predicted would have happened,
and in order to feed the staiving populace of Canada nothing shorl  of soup
kitchens would have    been   of avail.
When the Liberal party fame Into power tiny showed    how  insincere   they
were, or if ihu   in.-in'vre, then  incapable, in that they have today all Hie essential features of a policy of protection in force.   They wisely mate few
alterations in  the protective tarlfl  oi
Ibe previous Conservative government,
nml many of those alterations proposed
by them were so vigorously assailed by
tlie manufacturers, farmers and  mer��
chants of Canada ihat the "free trade"
policy  with which the  Libera]  party
deluded ihe electorate was soon discovered to be an impossible dream    To
tell how many times Sir Wilfrid    ho 1
Changed  his  luetics  nnd  adapted    bis
policy to tbe demands of petitioners and
recommendations   of   royal or parliamentary commissions would fill a large
volume,  but  in  respect to a protective
policy he has been unable to interfere.
As H is, the Canadian immigration has
heen a mere fragment of that into the
United  States, which  country bas    a
still higher protective tariff.    Immigration into Canada has never kept  pace
with that of its neighbor to the souih,
nnd the homesieading.s in Canada have
not even kept pace wllh the immigration.    This would suggest  that    with
her "wise immigration policy," (he Dominion of Canada has been, under Liberal regime, paying a bonus on Immigrants Who have come to Canada and
then gone on to the United Stales and
Bottled under apparently more favors*
ide conditions them,
Thai the tide is now turning and
tho Btream of immigration is setting
in for litis country, Is due entirely to
the natural resources ami opportunities
which the country affords, and which
have been made known chiefly by private enterprise and the interest of corporations in the settlement of their
land holdings. The splendid crops of
tne Northwest have made Canada
known as the granary of the empire,
and for these there Is surely no credit
in tbe Liberal government.
We are certainly happy in the
thought of the increasing prosperity of
our country, but (0 be reminded that
a warning given icn years ago did nol
turn out as predicted, simply because
the warning was heeded by tyro statesmen who learned soon after their tic-
cession lo power that their ideals were
Impossible, Is a disingenuous way to
cover up one's tracks.
The eastern papers do not take seriously the note of alarm sounded by
Mr, William White anent the proposed
invasion of the Canadian west by the
Oreal Northern railway magnate, Mr,
J. J. Hill. There is sense, satire nnd
suavity in what they say, hut ihey ail
apparently fail to grasp the nub of the
warning sounded by Mr. White. What
the vice-president of the C. P. R. was
really aiming at was that the integrity
of Canada as a market lor her own
manufactures and commerce might suffer seriously by the competition made
possible if more direct railway communication is to be established with the
great wholesale centers of the American middle west.
We do not here discuss the question
as to whether it is better for Canada
to maintain the integrity of her commerce as a whole, or whether it Is better for the West to have cheaper nee-
essarles of life by means of commercial
competition and a nearer market. That
Hill's railway will be built if Hill says
so, no one is prepared Io doubt; and
there is some force in the remark of
one eastern paper, which says: "If tho
continuance of this Dominion Is dependent upon so slight a matter, it is
a Onminion that cannot he continued,
for there will he roads North and
South, and there will lie trade with
.Minneapolis and St. Paul, and wholesalers will cut prices If they see any
gaift in ft." Again, "ir we have faith
in Canada, we shall refuse to believe
Mi. White when he aays that the existence of the Dominion Is conditional
upon our maintenance of laws and restraints that will dwarf the West to fit
the harness with which she Is yoked
to Eastern Canada."
We think that is the crux of the
whole matter, The star of empire Is
moving West in Cnnada���moving very
rapidly, too���and it win soon lie seen
to he Impossible to (ether the West by
any artificial arrangement which will
tend to fetter the development of tho
vast Canadian Occident. It is amusing
to read in a leading Liberal paper a-
serious suggestion that If the Dominion
is threatened by the possibility of getting cheaper goods from St. Paul, "we
stili have the tariff," with which n remedy could no doubt be effected, O
tempora,   0 mores!
The Dally News of New Westminster, a political blood relation of iis
namesake In this city, has some amusing tilings to say about this paper In
its  editorial  columns  of  last Monday.
Without following that paper through
the windings of its vagaries, there are
some tilings it says to which we call
attention In order 10 show that, like
most opposition papers, the News must
distort tho facts in order to make a
case. It calls this "a new paper which
devotes itself to the laudation of tlte
McBride government and condemnation
of everybody and everything opposed
lu that government." During its short
career this paper has made only a few
references to the McBride government
or lis ministers, and would have made
even U:\vvv were it no! for the cam*
palgn of villainous slander which has
been carried on by opposition papers
of iho class in which the News chooses
in  place Itself,    it  further  criticises
our publication of a news article ou the
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Company's successful efforts to secure traffic
rights over the Wisconsin Central rail
way, thereby shortening iis mileage to
Ihe Atlantic st aboard, and is apparently
Ignorant of ibe fact that ihe article was
published on the highest possible   mi
thorily iu Canada, Ii takes a fall out
of this paper because we quoted a sen-
[ence from an unnamed "member of
t!ie Liberal party," apparently unaware
thai if we had given the name ot, the
author we should have hurled consternation into the Liberal ranks. We
would only call the attention or the
News lo ibe announcement thai the
Qrand Trunk Pacific may now deposit
"standard" securities with the Ottawa
government in place of the $6,000,000
in cash it agreed to deposit, as an evidence of the manner in which the Liberal government is prepared io deal
wiili iis pel project.
Willi reference to our criticism of
a local paper, we said: "Tlie News
hns followed persistently a policy
of wilful misrepresentation and occasional deliberate political falsehood."
We said ihat, aud we say it again. We
challenge our local contemporary to
make good tlie alleged quotations from
existent public documents which the
Colonist claimed were not in existence,
and we repeal the challenge. Since
tlie Westminster paper again repeats
them, we call on it to Justify Its assertions, as ii appears to be of the class
who rush in where oilers fear to tread.
Tlie besl paragraph, however, in the
entire article by our Westminster coti-
tomiwirary is  tile  following:
"The moral of the whole thing is just
this: Political argument should he
passed over as mere 'jollying' unless it
is based on fact and proof."
As the articles recently appearing in
ihe Times. World, Nelson and Westminster News are not founded on fact, hut
are figments of superheated Imagination, we can only conclude that���anil
we do it on the Infallible authority of
the first paper quoted���they are a Species of political "jollying" for which
the B. C. opposition papers have developed a penchant we never saw in any
country before.

The Daily Canadian
Deputy Minister of Labor Advises More
The Labor Gazette for June hns some
Interesting Information respecting the
enormous Immigration of Italian laborers into Canada during the pasj two
years, and makes revelations of the
methods    employed,    practically under
''"' very eyei ol the governmenl at Ottawa.    Ii says:
"During the month of May the sub-
Jec. oi false representations to Induce
workingmen to come to Canada waa
under discussion In the house of commons.
"In the course of the deltaic the Hon,
a. ii. AyfcHwonh, minister of labor, Informed tbe house that the report of lhe
deputy minister of labor on the results
of his UnrestigaUon Into the alleged
fraudulent practices In England which
had Induced a large ntimbei of printers
to conic to Canada during the past winter had been forwarded to the authorities in London, with the request,
through colonial ofllce, to the British
parliament, that similar legislation to
that enacted by the Canadian parliament in  1906 should be there enacted.
"The report of the deputy minister
of labor sets forth at the outset the
procedure of the Investigation, it mentions ihat, from 0,000 to 8,000 Italians
had come to the cily of Montreal during
the first five months of 1904, and that
about a thousand of this number were
out of work in Montreal at the time ol
the inquiry. It Is staled that over 75
per cent, of those who had come were
married and had families residing in
"The causes which induced the large
Immigration of this particular class of
labor are divided in the report broadly
into two groups, one having to do with
the condiiion of the labor market ai
the time and during the previous year,
and the other with the specific means
adopted by individuals and organize-
lions to stimulate and further an
abundant  immigration,
"Dealing with the real cause oi the
large influx of Italians, the dot mi;,
minister says:
"The primary cause of the large Influx of Italians to Montreal during the
present year is, I believe, to bo found
in the work of certain Italian agencies
in that city, and In ihe methods pursued by thi se agencies, in co-operation
with railway and steamship companies
or their agents, to induce Immigrants
to come to Canada. The most important of these agencies are tlie ones conducted by Antonio Cordaaco at 876
St. James street. Montreal, and thai
conducted by Alberto Dlnl at 2O2O0SL
Catherine street, In the same city.
" 'The general plan adopted by these
agencies is to cause it to be known in
Italy in a number of ways that there is
a large demand for Italian labor iu this
country; that the persons In charge of
these agencies are in a position to secure immediate employment for those
who come in this country and apply to
them. Employment agencies iu Italy
and transportation companies are supplied with the business cards of these
Montreal employment agencies, and tho
Intending emigrants are supplied with
these cards and are told to present
them on arrival in Montreal.
"The agents of the transportation
companies and the empioym* nt agencies receive a commission on the tickets sold by them, and in some cases
also receive from the individual to
whom they have sold transportation a
fee for directing them to an employment agency in this country. The
amount of fraud which appears to be
practiced by these employment agencies In securing men in the first Instance, and in securing from them their
money afterwards, is almost Incredible.
" 'Antonio Cordasco has more to do
with the hiring of Italian laborers than
any other man in the city of Montreal.
On his business cards and iu the press
he advertises himself as passenger
agent for railway and steamship com'
panics and exchanger of money for all
Europe, a provider of work of all kinds,
and especially work upon railways, in
particular, the Canadian Pacific railway, of which company lie advertises
himself as the only Italian agent
" 'In his advertisements Cordasco
]H)lnts out the importance of all Italians
who desire work registering with him;
some of these notices would lead tho
reader to believe tlint he controlled the
demand for Italian labor, and that unless work were secured through him
it would go hard with the Italian who
was seeking employment in this coun
try.   For example, the following:
"Important Notice.
"To the Army of Pick and Shovel;
"Italian laborers, bosses and Under-
bosses do not show two laces, but only
one have the courage of a soldier. Apply to the ek ;unt and Solid Italian
Bank of Antonio Cordanoo if you do
not want lo weep your fortune lu
Spring, when the shipment of men will
������Uo not believe that with jour dollar
or dollars you will be able to gel work
like your comrades who have been
faithful No, never! We shall Inspect
our books as to the money orders and
the passage tickets, and those who will
not have their names entered in them
will put their hands in their hair and
will call Mr. Cordasco; 'Lordship, Don
AntOttlo. lot me go and work!' ( No,
never- will be answered to them; go lo
those through whom you sent your
money away, and so on,
"An advised man is hull' saved
"By order."
'"Still another device used by Cordasco to bring men lo Ihis country from
Italy is to send to Italy prepaid tickets,
entitling the emigrants to passage from
an Italian port to Montreal. The emi-
grnnl pledges himself by bond to repay
(his amount, aud other amounts which
may become due In the course ol securing him employment, nfier earning
siifliclent money In this country.
"The report concludes with a rerotit
tnendatlon for the appointment of a
royal commission to enautrs into ihe
workings of   these   agencies,  and   ihu
enactment of legislation to effectively
Btop such fraudulent practices as they
might be shown to be in the habit of
carrying on."
The world's successful men owe their
positions to aeldent ns well as nature.
One plant chances to be rooied in lusty
soil, in ihe soft sunlight, whlb- another
from the same seed, struggles for existence on a sand-heap.
