Toklo, May '_:).���Japan is considerably
concerned about thc recent attitude of
the Chinese newspapers on dynastic
mutters. The Maiuiehl Shimpo. an ex-
oellently Informed Journal, Interprets
the comments of these newspapers as
foreshadowing the beginning of a struggle for tho succession, thc Dowager Kin-
press of China, who la the virtual ruler
of the empire, being now 77 years old,
The civilized world, Ihe Mainlchl thinks,
may expect an uphcaveal at no very distant date.
The JIJI. regarding the matter from
.la;,mi's viewpoint, points out that
China's pigheaded attempts to enforce
the new policy due to China's so-called
rights and recovery of spirit, of no eon-
cessions to Japan, have already nullified an Important provision of the
Treaty of Pekln, namely, thu exploitation of thc forest of the Yalu river, negotiations as to which between China
and Japan, were recently abruptly
broken off at Tlen-Tsln. This action,
the JIJI holds, threatens the stability
of all treaties, lt warns China that Japan was prominent in promoting the
programme of the powers for the preservation of the integrity of China, hut
should treaties be rtellberatoly ignored
the attitude of the powers mny suddenly change the regard for her. Telegrams say that the Japaucse minister
at Pekln has vigorously rejected China's
demand for thc restoration of the Man-
churlan mines, appropriated hy Japan
during ihe war.
The Koktimln. in a leading article
that Is supposed to relied official opinion urges united action by the powers
to enforce the open door ns the only

Summary of Aylesworth's
First Session
Transparently Unfair in Handling of
Insurance Commission���Often
Overridden by Chief.
Ottawa. May 23.���Hon. A. B. Aylesworth, minister of Justice, will not do.
To a great many Liberals tbls will seem
Hat absurdity, for he ls the Idol of what
Mr. Fowler, in a moment of felicitous
vituperation, styled the "burdocks."
That is the trouble: he has the back-
bencher's conception of party warfare
Joined to lhe brain aud the prestige of
a front-bencher.
The unfairness of which the Insurance commission ia convicted must be
considered In connection with .Mr. Ayles-
worth's case. Apart from the ugly anxiety to drag Mr. Borden's name into
the Pope-Fowler lands transaction, we
must remember that a great deal of the
exploration Inlo Mr. Fowler's affairs
was unjustifiable. Mr. Fowler offered
���certain properties to organisations with
which Mr. Foster wus concerned, lt
was projier to investigate Mr. Foster's
management of I. O. F. and Union Trust
funds, aud it was pissps-r to Investigate
whether Ihe purchases he made were
prudent; hut what concern hud the commission with the manner In which Mr.
Fowler obtained these properties? The
question seems unanswerable. Again,
one of Mr. Foster's unhappy syndicates
bought a certain quantity of landB before, and a certain quantity afler Mr.
Foster became closely identified with
the management: the money flrst and
last was derived from the Foresters. In
the former transactions the commission
showed no Interest; it scrutinized the
latter minutely. Taken In conjunction
wllh the other circumstances, this can
only be described as suspicious. Yet
again, the report contains a bad Instance of a statement favorable to Mr.
Foster being burled In one of the volumes of evidence, where lt will not be
read by ono person ln a hundred of
those who iieruse the report.
When a matter Ib brought inlo politics the responsibility must be at the
door of some politician; and in this case
the popular Impression charges the matter up to Mr. Aylesworth's account. It
is a matter of popular impression; de-
Unite proof Is lacking, and Mr. Aylesworth has made the most elaborate disclaimer of having "inspired'* Mr. Shop-
ley, who dominated the Insurance commission. But tlie Conservatives utterly
scout his denial, and are certain that ln
some more or less subtle way his spirit
of party warfare was communicated to
Mr. Shepley, who is his bosom friend.
It Is impossible to pass judgment on a
matter of mere Burmise. All that one
can do is to note that public opinion
more or less clearly connects Mr. Aylesworth with the partizan twist given to
the commission, and that this is an unhappy association for a man who should
be it leader.
So fur as more definite politics are
concerned, tt Is to be noted that Mr.
Ayleaworth remains a confirmed lawyer,
lie Is not an ordinary member, nor even
nn ordinary minister. He waa brought
In to he a leader, lo redeem Ontario
from Its submergence by tho present
wave of Conservatism. To consider him
adequately we must ask ourselves
Whether anything thin ho hns done will
Increase tho Liberal delegation from
Ontnrlo from lis prosont standing of 39
to lhe Conservative 47. How can a
lenilor to that sort of thing? Along
two main Hues. He must give his party
a correct lead ln matters of policy, lie
must nppfeal to the country tn a general way as In touch with the people's
point of view. In both respects Mr.
Ayleaworlh hus failed. A curiolisly long
Hat might be compiled of Instances in
which lie has given the wrong loud, nnd
hns boon overridden by his chief. Lust
session, for example, he opened the
Cinq Mars case by doclarlng that Mr.
Foster's case should be laughed out of
court; and before the afternoon was
over Sir Wilfrid assented to Mr.
Foster's motion. In the Lord's Day Act
he took a hopelessly wrong line, and
after rejecting Mr. Borden's principal
BuggeBtion, was forced to acquiesce in
It when lt wns adopted by tho Senate.
During recoBS he denounced Mr. Bourassa with exaggerated vlolenco, nnd
ho took submissively nn unmerciful
drubbing when that formidable gladiator got him in the House, llo declared
that there waB no reason why Mr. Hy-
mun should resign, und Mr. Hyman did
resign, nnd the premier,expressly approved his course. So lately us the
light over the Hamilton Undliil Railway bill ho look the wrong Bide.
This Hamilton Radial bill affair may
be noticed at some length as illustrating
this point. The fight over it van followed by the Petewawa -camp debate, In
which the government won a signal
success. The opposition wus absolutely routed ln thiB conflict; and yet It may
be guessed that it will reap whatever
political advantage may accrue from the
episode. The most significant Incident
in the business is that the Ontario opposition made no right ln the Toronto
House. Why? Surely Mr. Graham and
Mr. MacKay must bave known the facts
which Mr. Fielding brought out. The
only explanation wiiich occurs to an observer here is that the Otnarto opposition did not dare, even with a good
case, to make head against tlie Provincial Rights storm now sweeping Ontario. If that explanation Is correcl, if
the storm ls so sti.'ng, lt will be like
whistling In the tenth of a gale to put
forward even so strung a defence as Mr.
Fielding unfolded. Mark now how
things fit together. The Hamilton
Radial Railway bill was a bad business.
The department of Railways and Canals did not like it; Mr. Fielding opposed
It. Mr. Aylesworth hsd a spleftdid
chance. By siding wltb Mr. Fielsilng he
would merely have shortened the bill's
misery, for it was doomed anyway, and
he would have placed himself upon the
popular side, and would have figured aB
the real friend of Provincial rights. The
Petewawa incident came a day or two
later; buttressed by Mr. Aylesworth's
slaughter of the Hamilton Radial bill,
the moral effect of the government success would have been tenfold. That ls
how opportunities are lost in politics.
Mr. Aylesworth's one big piece of
work was his duel with Mr. Foster over
the Insurance commission and In this he
performed to the rapturous satisfaction
of his friends the "burdocks." Speaking from a dispassionate point of view,
one may say tbat It was a damaging
speech, by far the best which he has delivered, and making serious holes in Mr.
Foster's defence; but that It was hurt
by his hldeoUB comparison of Mr. Foster
to the wretched Mr. McGill.
Apart from the taste of comparing a
man who acted absolutely within the
limits of the law, and who kept In full
touch with his directors, to a convicted
felon, whose sjiecial crime waa the concealment of facts from his board, the
comparison has the serious political
fault that so brutal an exaggeration wil]
have the effect of stirring up sympathy.
Arrested President Resigns.
New York, Mny 23.���Frederick Burn
ham, arrested for grand larceny and
forgery, tendered l.,s resignation from
the presidency of the Mutual Reserve
Life Assurance society at a meeting of
the board of directors yesterday, The
resignation was accepted. Archibald
Haynes, formerly general agent for the
Equitable Life Assurance society, wns
elected to succeed Mr. Burnham. At
the same meeting George D. Eldrldge
tendered his resignation as vice presl-
dent, actuary, and member of the board
or directors. His resignation from the
office of vice president was accepted,
but he still remains actuary of the company and a member of the board of directors. No successor as vice president
was chosen.
Postmaster-General  of Canada   Replies
to American Criticism���Ignores
Reported Threat.
Ottawa, May 23.���In reference to the
statement contained ln the Associated
Press despatch from Washington that
the poslmaster-general of Canada had
notified the postmaster-general of tho
United States that it would be Impossible for the Canadian poBt offlce department to handle second-class mail matter coming into this country from the
United States by express or freight and
remaning here, Hon. Mr. Lemieux said:
"1 might state that no auch statement
has been made. Tho United States has
the samo prlvilego of remalllng toduy In
Canada under Ihe present postal convention as lt hns under the old one,
with tho exception thnt In.,tend of the
rale being one cent per pound It ts one
cent per four ounces, or four cents per
pound. Tho fact that the rale should
bu raised from one to four cents is the
natural consequence of the amended
convention. Under tho old convention
Ihe privilege of ono cent per pound wns
not a higher rate than the domestic
rale ot either country, but the remalllng privilege of one cent per pound
would, In my opinion, be a violation of
seel Ion four of tho convention existing
between the two countries.'*

first time yesterday, but beyond the
verification of credentials no business

Thinks Disarmament Is
Caricature of Kaiser's Foreign Policy
���Checkmated by King Edward and Isolated.
Rome, May 23��� The attitude of Italy
at the coming peace conference at Tbe
Hague was defined in the Chamber of
Deputies by the foreign minister, Slg-
nor Tittonl. Tbe House was crowded,
among those assembled In the diplomatic gallery being the American ambassador, Mr, Grlscom.
In brief, Slgnor Tittonl said that the
Italian government was in favor of the
limitation of armaments, but the government agreed with the Austro-German
reservations on the subject because of
the difficulty in finding a practical, acceptable solution of the problem involved.
Continuing, tbe foreign minister said
tbe British government had not yet
adopted a concrete formula to be proposed to The Hague conference. Were
it possible to find a practical method
for ensuriug the limitation of armaments without injuring thc Interests of
uny stale, and without placing any of
them in a condition of inferiority to
others, a plan that ull might adhere to,
Germany and Austria would agree to it.
But they did not believe this to bo possible, and therefore, they would not participate in tbe discussion, would uot be
bound by the decisions arrived at, and
would preserve the most complete liberty of action.
"Therefore," said Slgnor Tittonl,
"while I today reaffirm the statement
that tbe Italian government Is ln sympathy with the most noble objects
which suggested the broad-minded British Initiative, we fully agree with the
Austro-German reservations on tho subject ot the Impossibility of immediately finding a practical, acceptable solution of the problem involved."
Previous to making his statement on
the attitude of Italy at Tbe Hague, Slgnor Tittonl, ln reply to interpellations
In the House, said that Italy's policy
consists ot unshaken loyalty to the
Triple Alliance, sincere friendship for
Great Britain and France, and cordial
relations with all other powers.
Berlin, May 23.���One of the most
amusing and suggestive comments In
the German press ou the present alleged
rivalry between Great Britain and Germany is the following passage, taken
from the Rhenish Wcstphalian Gazette,
a leading journal of aggressively patriotic views:
"Two players are sitting opposite to
one another engaged in a Btubborn contest on the European chessboard. One
of them tEdwnrd VII.) is a cool, calculating, and quiet player, while tho
other (William II.) is young, full of vi-
voclty, the reverse of calculating, rloh
in Ideas and fantastic imagination.
"There is no longer any doubt which
of these players will gain the victory,
so long as the contest is confined to
tho diplomatic chessboard. William II.
Is already checkmated.
"None of all those prlncos and kings
whom he visited tn the earlier years of
his reign, and whose friendship he
gained has remained true to him, ex.
cept the aged Emperor Francis Joseph
and the proprietor of the grentest gom-
bling hell in the world (the reigning
Prlnoe of Monaco). All the othera have
quitted their seats at the German Emperor's banqueting table, some noisily
and others noiselessly, hecause, so to
speak, the political cuisine offered to
them In Berlin is no longer suited to
their tastes.
"All the marks ot friendship, nil the
words of praise, all the presents, all tho
orders and decorations which. the Ger-
man Emperor has dealt out so lavishly
lo foreigners, and even his own passionate prayers, huve lieen fruitless, and
William II. now remains ln Isolated

Albany, N. Y��� Mny 23.���Governor
Hughes sent to the legislature today n
special message urging thc passage of
thc so-called New York Recount Bill,
which ls to provide early procedure for
the re-counting of the ballots cast ln the
MeLollan-Hearst mayorallty election in
New York city in 1905. Tho governor
nlso recommends that the legislature
postpone its final adjournment until
niter lhe bill shall have become n law.
Strike Riot in Buffalo.
Buffalo,   May 23.���The  polco  and  a
number   of   striking   freight   hundlers
clashed this morning at the dock. Leonard Asce and Carlo Angelo, strikers, are
under arrest, the former with a bullet
wound In the right thigh. The police
say about 23 strikers attacked the
freight house. Tbe sbot was fired by
Policeman Larkln, who waB badly
handled by the strikers. Order was soon
Conference's   Solitary  Achievement  Is
Likely to Fall.
London, May 23.���In some quarters It
is believed the cabinet's decision refers
the scheme of on all-red route lo a
departmental committee, and practically
seals its fate. It is feared the entire
cost may fall on British taxpayers, and,
it tbls becomes generally believed, there
will be no chance of lt passing the
House ot Commons.
In the city the opinion is that the
scheme is an Ideal one, but not likely to
admit of practical realisation. Tbe Vancouver-Australasia service is especially
criticized, it being generally agreed that
fast steamers are too costly.
Whole Garrison Deserts.
Belgrade, May 23���The Turkish garrison at Ustaub, consisting of about 1000
men, has deserted. The soldiers com-
plained that they were given bad food
and that other conditions were unsuitable. Tbey carried off their arms and
thus far only fifty men have been recaptured. Ustaub is situated about 100
miles from Saloniki, with which it ls
connected by rail. It Is an important
trade centre and has a population of
20,000, consisting of Turks, Albanians,
Servians, Bulgarians and Greeks.
Complain of Treatment by British Mnl*
istera���Report Profound Disappointment.
London, May 23.���The Irritation ot
tbe colonial prime ministers with the
government was further voiced yesterday by Sir William Lyne, minister ot
state for trade and customs ln Australia,
who In an address to the Australian
chamber of commerce In London complained that they had been treated -unfairly at the conference.
Tbe government's action, he Bald, had
been negative throughout. It had negatived everything the colonial representatives wanted the government to do.
He complained that the press waa excluded from the conference agalnat the
wishes of a majority of the members
and the government had Issued to the
public only just what lt wished to have
published. It was remarkable, he said,
that the daily official summary gave a
good resume of the speeches of the Imperial ministers and a bad one of the
Two of the ministers���Messrs. Aa
quith and Churchill���he said, bad adopted an almost offensive attitude towards
the prime ministers. Mr. Lloyd-
George was the most reasonable minister they had tp deal with. Sir William
declared that, ae a new generation arose
in the colonies, they would lose the feeling ot kinship with Great Britain unless
something was done to sustain lt by
interchange and commerce and a quickening of means of communication.
Sir William said, ln conclusion, that
lhe representatives from Australia
would return borne with a feeling of
great disappointment.
J.  S.  Lawrence Transferred  to   Main
Line���Slocan's Grievance.
J. S. Lawrence, superintendent of the
Kootenay division of the C. P. R., ln an
Interview with the The Daily Canadian
this afternoon, states that on June 1st
he will probably���the arrangement Is
not absolutely settled���assume the position of superintendent of a new main
line division, formed hy subdivision. His
district will extend from Swift Current
to Medicine Hat, Medicine Hat to Calgary, and probably also Medicine Hat to
Lethbrldge. The subdivision has been
necessitated by the rapid Increase of
traffic on tho main line.
Mr. Lawrence will be succeeded here
by D. C. Coloman. at present secretary
lo Vice President Bury.
Mrs. Lawrence, and their son will ro
main In Nelson tor the summer.
Mr. Lawrence said: "I am really sorry
to leave Nelson. I don't know of any
more desirable place of residence, In
respect of scenery, climate and people,
between Vancouver and Toronto."
Referring lo the protests of the people of Slocan Mr. Lawrence explained
that he never cared to reply in print
to public agitation. But he showed The
Daily Canadian's representative that
even for the present year, which has
marked1 an Improvement ln the district,
the whole revenue from the branch is
absurdly disproportionate to the cost of
operating the line.
Cause of Death.
Tho Manitoba Free PresB of last Monday states that Mr. Luxton's death resulted from a stroke ot paralysis, the attack coming on Saturday evening whllo

few days bo had been suffering from a

Next Move of Liberals od
Irish Question
Unionists Say Redmond sand Otter
Leadefs Half Pwmised fo
Support BI1L
Dublin, May 23.���The Nationalists are
of the opinion that one result of the rejection of Mr. Birrell's Irish Bill by the
National convention will be.to compell
tbe Liberal party, at the next general
election, to Incorporate In Its programme some genuine Home Rule
scheme. In the meantime they expect
that the present parliament will pasg
Mr. Bryce'B Irish University Bill and
other Irish legislation. The Irish members of the House of Commons will -continue to cooperate with the Laborltea
on general legislation.
Tbe opposition politicians In Ireland
profess the opinion that the outcome ot
the convention threaten John E. Redmond's leadership ln the Nationalist
party, and declares that Mr. Redmond
and other Irish members ot the House
-came to Dublin from Westminister Intending to support the bill, but when
they reached Ireland they were forced
to bow to public opinion. They aay it
would be Interesting to learn how far
the Irish members were consulted In
the preparation of the bill, and whether
or not they promised the cabinet thetr
It ls certain, they declare that the,
Nationalist party would have been

had attempted to stem popular feeling
and the wont ittsaenslons of recent
years would have resulted.
Popular and Antl-Brltlsh Movement la
Reported From Kabul.
Calcutta, May 23.���While no recent
serious disorders are reported, the situation remains grave. A strong popular
anti-British movement is now reported
trom Afghanistan.
The Mullahs of Afghanistan have
started a boycott of British goods.
At a meeting of Mullahs, held at Kabul, the Ameer waa denounced for hla
liberal tendencies, and especially fer
bringing foreign innovations into the
The Mullahs resolved that It waa on-
lawful tor Mahomedans to purchase foreign goods, as being against the Interests of Afghanistan. They especially
condemned the use ot Brtlsh sugar, In
consequence of objections to the processes of manufacture.
Violent speeches were made by several of the Mullahs, and their language
was so threatening that the Ameer's eldest son, the Sirdar Inayatulla Khan, dispersed other similar gatherings,'and a
number ot the ringleaders were
According to advices from the other
side ot the border, the anti-foreign
movement is spreading throughout the
the country, and the Ameer has given
orders for it to be sternly repressed.
Mullahs who preach against the British
are to be severely punished.
Although there have been no fresh
outbreaks ln Eastern Bengal the unrest
continues. It Is largely attributed to
the Hindu movement to boycott English
goods. The Mahomedans still refuse
to join the boycott and the bitterness
against them increases. A Hindu organisation called the National Volunteers
Is carrying on the agitation ln the
rural districts, keeping tbe whole population In a state of nervous irritation.
The members go armed wltb spears,
clubs and swords and sometimes firearms, preaching sedition, hampering
trade, destroying foreign goods and terrorising tbe Inhabitants. Trade has almost stopped and farming ls hindered.

MAY'M. 1907.
Lake Mohonk. in New York state, ls
an American Imitation of the Hague
and there once a faar American loren
of peace gather to pose and entertain
each other.
America is for tbe present almost outside the war rone. It would be completely outside hut for the retention of
Hawaii and  the Philippines.
The War of 1812 between Hriiain and
the I'nited States was forced on by the
trucukmce of the Kentucky "War
Hawks." Kentucky was safe from the
British fleet, and beyond ihe probable
limit of penetration by British land
forces. The Atlantic statea were opposed to war. The only enthusiasts for
It were the people who were really not
Just why Americans should continue
In a state of chronic agitation over the
danger of war in Europe or Asia is not
apparent. The armed truce of EurojK*
really involves many economic advantages to the United States, and also ensures that the nations which have to
keep armed to the teeth to watch each
other wil) not be able or disposed to interfere with American interests anywhere.
It is extremely doubtful if any useful
work will be done by the Hague Conference this year. This seems to be a bad
year for conferences.
The Russian Czar's first invitation to
the nations to meet at the Hague to discuss ways and means of establishing
universal and eternal peace, was doubtlessly inspired by lofty motives. But
practical statesmen were doubtful of its
advantages at the time.
With nations as with Individuals the
first law is self-preservation. It is each
���nations first duty to itself to keep pre- !
pmred for self-defence and to preserve j
in Its people the virtues of bravery and
of readiness to sacrifice self for country.
"That   man's   the   best   cosmopolite
That loves his native country* best"
said Tennyson 5u years ago. and Tennyson was no lover of wars. It is well to
preach love of mankind, and to inculcate justice among nations as among
men. but for many aeons to come those
will be the most progressive, and on the
whole, the happiest and best peoples, in
whom love of country and just pride of
race prove strongest motives, and who
are most willing and ready to fight for
their ideals when there is need.
So long as there is any large body of
people beyond the pale of European
civilization and capable of development
into a fighting race. Europe cannot disarm. The awakening of China is a familiar bogey, eo familar that it is often
treated with contempt, but not by the
wise. The awakening of Islam is an
ever present possibility. There are 800r
000,000 of Mahomedans in India, Western Asia and North Africa, whose courage has often been proved, and whose
enmity to Christian Europe never
Apart from external dangers there are
enough unsettled problems in Europe itself, either inherited from the past or
boru of new conditions, which will long
forbid disarmament or the recognition
of any limit but the ability of the
It is often forgotten that the German
Empire is very young, not so old by 11
years, as its ruler, who is still considered youthful. Germany has developed
In the last quarter of a century from an
agricultural to a manufacturing and
trading nation. Her Emperor would not
be content with the hegemony of continental Europe if he could attain it.
He aspires to world-power and has declared that "worjd-power means sea-
power." With that as his creed tie has
set himself to rival the British navy.
Under the circumstances it is hard
to see any possible guarantees of
peace, other than the preparedness of
all to make attacks upon them costly
and dangerous.
But the jealousies in Europe do not
threaten America; on the contrary they
insure her peace.
Why then do the good, kind-hearted
and peace-loving Americans waste so
much of their time they usually value
so extravagantly, fn worrying over the
woes cf poor Europe, "groaning under |
Tha Week, a Victoria weekly U agi
tatlng in capital letters, for a Victoria
bank for Victoria people." It is a sonorous phrase, bu: we can detect no other
merit in it. Our banking system Is one

are national. In the United States
Mnks are confined in their operations
to cities or districts al the best, and
the resni. is that disaster in one city
means ruin to the bank. An earthquake
or a conflagration might destroy Victoria, but her people's money deposited
in Canadian banks would be as safe as
la the Earj. of England. Old residents
of Victoria win remember the Garesche-
Green i^nk. which was a 'Victoria bank
for Victoria people.'" They may also remember that for a long time the 3ank

kept I2.000.00i} belonging to the Duns
mair 'amily. in its vaults, and paid no
interest. At the time the money could
have been profitably used by a Canadian bank, but not by a Victoria bank.
The Week wants to be an authority on
too many things at once. Mining, prohibition. Lord's Day observance, moral
refona. -politics, literature, art, theology
sand education are all fairly within its
sphere. But no newspaper man is permitted to be an authority on finance.
Nelson ls seriously threatened with a
period of internal peace. The two problems which have caused anxiety and occasional divisions of opinion for the last
five years are solved. Our power plant
is practically completed, our foclish
quarrel with a neighboring corporation
is made up. and the decision to build a
decent school is taken. Peace may not
be wholesome for Nelson but it will, for
a time at least, be a pleasing novelty.
The decision of the people of Slocan
to ask the co-operation of the Nelson
board of trade in their appeal flrst to
the C. P. R. authorities, then, if necessary, to the railway commission, is
eminently wig*. \ tuber statement of
a business question by busipess men
will have far more efficacy than four
columns of editorial indignation and vituperation.
What about the Nelson city band1 Is
Nelson to be without music during the
coming summer? It is true that the
evenings are still a little chill for band
concerts on the street or at the Lake
Park, but warm weather is net faraway,
and it fs time for practice. Free band
music of good quality is a part of public
education, and should be, at least in
part .supported by the city.
Canada's young postmaster-general.
Hon. Rudolphe Lemieux, is showing a
firmness that is entirely praiseworthy
in the matter of the new postal convention with the United States, and a proper dignity fn ignoring the alleged
threat of the American postmaster-general to retaliate.
"Tact, propriety and dignity." are the
virtues the British admire in our Sir
Wilfrid. It's too bad they cannot detect any statesmanlike qualities, but
then, neither can we.

Boundary Smelters Likely to Grant Advance���Detail, of Rescues by
Joe Snively.
Grand Fort-a, May 23.���A considerable
amount of speculation exists here now
as to what action the directorate of the
Oranby company will take with reference to allowing Its employees the re-
quested ,'.'. per day for eight hours work.
A prominent mining man arriving here
loday from Oreenwood Btates that the
general feeling there aud also In other
Itoundary towns Is thut the men should
be allowed the desired advance in wugcB
owing to the fact that any work about a
smelting plant lankH amongst (he very
must huzardous classes of work available, owing lo tbe gases und smoke,
us well us the cuntlnuul danger of bodily
Injury to nny one employed on the
works. From the latest information to
hund it ls more than likely that when
this Granby Biuelter blows ln its furnaces
lu a few days time, tbe lowest wageB
on the pay roll will be $:i for a day of
eight hours work, as the Granby company, heretofore noted for Ila liberality
towards its employees, Ib not likely to
be the llrst of tho Houndary smelters
to refuse the small Increase asked for,
especially when the price ot copper Is
ranging between 'ill and 25 cenls per
To drop Into the raging foaming
waters of the Kettle river some fifteen
feet deep at the First street bridge, and
to float down stream on a chunk of
wood, to he picked up a mile down the
river by Joseph Snively, ln his row
boat, was the thrilling experience of
John Hutchinson, a pioneer resident of
Grand Forks, lt seems that Mr. Hutchinson was standing on the log jam at
the bridge yesterday afternoon when he
missed his footing and fell into the
river, but very fortunately he managed
to catch an old root of a tree and by
this, means kepi his head above water.
In the meantime Joe Snively, who ls an
excellent boatsmun, saw the accident
and without delay manned his boat and
started down stream after the perishing
man. lly this Ume hundreds of people
crowded the bank of the river and several roller parties were sent down the
Btream, but by the time they arrived
opposite where Hutchinson was they
found that their work was already done
for Joe Snively had already dragged Uie
half drowned man Into his boat. Mr.
Hutchinson was at once driven back to
town where he was received with
cheers, and whero he received treatment and soon revived. Too much
praise cannot be given Mr. Joseph
Snively for hlB heroic act In rescuing
his brother citizen from a watery grave.
Another fatality by drowning was
narrowly averted yesterday, this time
tho victim being young Arthur Clark,
the nine year old son of Mr. Robert
Clark of the Seattle mine. It seems that
the lad along with his older brother
Leslie, a lad of thirteen, were playing
on the bank of what Is known bb a
borrow pit Just beside the C. P, R. track
near Niagara, when the earth gave way
and landed young Arthur in about nine
feet of water. The lad not being able
to swim immediately sank. In the meantime his brother waa calling for help
and his crleB reached his father who
was quite a considerable distance off.
Mr. Clark on reaching the water plunged into the little lake juat iu time to
rescue htB child, who had sunk the
third time. When landed on the shore
It wna some time before, and with great
difficulty, the boy was restored to consciousness.
Word has reached here today that
Tom Kennedy, who waB employed on
Uie log drive of the Yale Columbia Lumber company, at Midway, was drowned
near Midway a couple of days ago by
falling under the logs. ..

Birthday   of   Flnt   Great   BoUnlit   I.
Celebrated in Capital of Hla
Native Country.
Stockholm, May 23.���All the universities and learned and scientific societies
of Swedeu today held exerciseB In celebration of the 200th anniversary of Carl
von I.lniie, the father of the modern
science of botany. Llnne, often known
as LlnneuB, the Latinized form of the
name, was born ln the province of Sma-
liiinl, May 24th, 1707, aud died In Upsa-
la, Jan. 10th, 1778 He was a naturaliBt of
the highest rank and not only was a
most enthusiastic Btudcnt and explorer,
but placed the knowledge of plant life
on a scientific basis. Ills system of
nomenclature still prevails as does a
similar system of zoology.
Llnne wus u son of a Lutheran clergy,
mun and In childhood was designed for
the ministry, but be was so fascinated
by flowers and plants that be made no
headway In his theological studies. His
father was advised to bave him taught
a trade, and In fact he was apprenticed
to a shoemaker, but, fortunately for the
scientific world, Dr. Rothman, a physician at Wexlco, who had noticed the
boy's enthusiasm for botany, prevailed
upon the father to allow him to study
medicine and natural history. The
physician took young Llnne Into his
own household, and there he studied
and worked among the plants and flow-
era for aome years.
Ambitious to pursue his studies the
young man went to the university of Up-
aala. He was unable to obtain employment and while at the university he suffered at times from actual hunger. Later
he attracted Uie favorable notice of one
of the professors, who obtained for him
financial assistance.
ln 1732 Llnne made a botanlal tour of
Lapland, mostly on foot, a journey of
4,000 miles, which resulted in his first
published work on botany, it was su
well received that it excited the Jealousy of Dr. Rosen, professor of botany
ln the university faculty, who had him
dismissed from the university on some
shallow pretext. The unfortunate young
man then journeyed to northern
Sweden, where he assayed metals and
did odd Jobs at the mines. His steps
next led him to Holland, where be pursued his studies and completed several
of his most Important botanical works.
He was fortunate in finding a wealthy
patron, who sent him to England to
study tlie gardens and herbariums there,
and where he made the acquaintance of
all the British botanists. He visited
Paris also and learned the theories and
methods of tae French gardeners.
Returning finally to Sweden he established himself ln Stockholm as a
physician. His ability was almost Immediately recognized and he was elected president of the Royal Academy. The
chair of botany in the faculty at Up-
Bala was the height of his ambition,
and he attained lt in 1741 upon the retirement of his old enemy, Professor
Rosen. He soon made that department
of science in the university of Sweden
famous throughout the entire world,
and students came from all countries to
receive his Instruction. Distinctions of
all kinds were bestowed upon him by
foreign nations as well as his own. He
was elevated to thc rank of a noble and
took the title of Von Llnne. All the
learned bodies of Europe elected blm
to members ship and he received invitations from many of the great universities to join their faculties.
lt was at the university of Upsala
where the most notable of today's observances was held in honor of
the great botanist's 200th anniversary.
The exercises were participated in by
representatives of many of the universities and scientific societies throughout
the world, including the Linnaean society of London, the Smithsonian Institution at Washington and Shaw's botanical gardens at St. Louis. During the
day tho Linne monument in the Cathedral of Upsala, where the famous botanist was burled, was piled high with
floral tributes sent by the leading scientific societies of the world.
