Explanation Offered by Prelate of Eastern   Canada  on   Recent  Papal
Of the new regulations governing the
marriage of members of the Church of
Home, which went into effect on Easter
Monday, an eastern Canadian prelate of
that  church  says:
"The Pope, as sovereign head of the
Catholic church which is a perfect society, established by Christ, has the
right to make such laws as are conducive to tlie happiness and well being
of the members of the Catholic church.
This power over the whole church Is
vested in the Pope alone. A bishop may
make law* for bis diocese, a parish
priest cannot for his parish. A bishop
must not. make any laws wbich run
counter to the laws promulgated by
tin- Pope. Circumstances change very
much. Discipline may change. Doctrine cannot change. We cannot add
ur take from the fulness of the doctrine
of Christ. The new marriage law 1s a
mere  matter of  discipline.
"Au engagement tt) be valid must
contain tbe fie,- promise and mutual
consent of the two parties. The engagement must be In writing by both
parties and signed by the bishop, or
the .vleiii general or the parish priest
or two laymen. Il one or both of tbe
parties cannot write, this fact is to he
noted in tlie document, and another
witness is to he added who will sign
with tin- parties already mentioned. So
that if banns are published, and an interested party objects under the plea of
a prior engagement, the church will demand the papers to prove that prior
engagement Without these conditions
that engagement is null and void.
"Any parish priest-can validly marry
a collide from any parish in the world
providing he performs the ceremony
within the limits of his own parish. He
may marry validly in the church, or in
his home, or even in the street. Tlie
parish priest who would thus marry a
couple, neither of them of his parish,
sins it he celebrates without the permission of the bishop, vicar-general or
the parish priest of one or both of the
parties, If one of the parties reside
thirty days within a parish, the priest
of said pariah can marry them not only
\alldly but lawfully, and the ceremony
is a   real  and  true marriage.
"A Catholic Who bus left tlie church
is held ns a Catholic for this particular
case. The marriages of Protestants
:i lining   Protestants,   the   church   leaves
them alone, she leaves them to their
own rules and regulations, and if they
should later on enter tlie Catholic
church there will be no question of the
validity of their marriage, as far us the
presence of tlie priest is concerned.
"Mixed marriages are lawful when
a parish prlosi perforins them within
the limits of his parish, To lie lawful
a dispensation must he obtained from
the bishop, who only grants it for very
serious reasons. These marriages are
governed by the lite same laws as
catholic marriages, except in Germany,
In the German empire a mixed marriage
liv ihe magistrate, judge, squire or minister ts valid and binding. No one can
force a parlsli priest lo perform the
ceremony, otherwise It wilt be null and
"Matrimony," concluded the speaker,
"Is a contract Instituted by Ood from
the beginning of Ibe world; it Is therefor a sacred and religious contract and
contral common amongst men. This
contract commons amongst men. This
contract already sacred and holy, was
raised by Chris! to the dignity of n
sacrament. Therefore amongst Chris
ttans, marriage Is an essentially religious act, a source of grace and sancti-
llcatlons." \

Hospital Ball.
The annual bait In aid of the Kootenay Lake General Hospital was held
last night in the Alice Roller Rink and
was one of the most pronounced successes of the season. Although many
people bought tickets for the sake of
the hospital there were not more than
2fi0 at the ball, a very small number In
comparison to the capacity of the floor.
The floor was in the best of condition,
the music was splendid, the supper was
excellent, and it is really doubtful if
any public dance ever held in Nelson
furnished as much real enjoyment to
the guests. The proof lies in the fact
that at half-past three, nearly an hour
after the formal programme was finish
jed, half the guests were still there
dancing extras. The lion's share of
the  credit   for  the splendid   success of
he hall is due to Mrs. W. A. Macdonald.

How Duncan Ross

S.dley was suppressed and virtually ex
pelled from the convention after he had
protested against the renom,nation oi
the sitting member. His opposition to
.Mr. Ross was not based on general
principles, but to the specific neglect ol
the interests of the people of the Similkameeu district.
Mr. Sidley's lively protest against
the renominatlon of BIT. Ross is a surface symptom of the discord and lack
of cohesion prevailing in the Liberal
ranks through Ihe entire constituency.
Besides meeting a united and well organized Conservative opposition, Mr.
Ross will have to recken with the disgruntled Liberal element embracing
former supporters who enjoy no little
influence in their respective communities. This element is especially strong
in Greenwood, the home of the sitting
member, the Similkameen, Nicola and
in Ashcroft and Kamloops. It was unrepresented at the convention as the
party machine directed from here took
the necessary precaution weeks in advance to see that none but Ross delegates were selected.
It is now recalled that Mr. Ross won
the last election by a small majority���
a trifle over one hundred���although
polling took place a month later than
the date of the general election, and
that the return of-the Laurler admin
istratlon greatly handicapped Mr. Martin Burrell of Grand Forks, the Conservative candidate, who was unl nowu In

With one or two exceptions prominent
Liberals did not attend the convention.
The absentees Included Mr. Stuart
Henderson, M. L. ��� A., and Mr. Dennis
Murphy of Ashcroft. They failed even
to be nominated as delegates, because
the machine had everything cut and
dried ln advance. Cariboo and Lillooet
districts were not even represented by
proxies. Nicola district sent only two
delegates. Yale four and the Similkameen a similar number to follow the
instructions of the machine. The Liberals of Ashcroft, including Mr. George
Ward, have not forgotten Mr. Ross for
his alleged favoritism in regard to the
award of a certain government contract of conveying mails and express
from that  town to Barkervllle.
A serious split in the ranks at Kam
loops has existed ever since Mr. Ross
handed over the distribution of tin-
patronage of that district and Lillooet
and Cariboo to what is locally known
as the Deane faction, and whose members comprise Dr. Wade, Mr. J. D. McDonald and Mr. F. J. Deane. a former
resident but now of Nelson. These politicians cut a wide swath at the recent

Head of  Roman Church   in   Ireland   la
Bound for  New York.
New York, April 23.���Catholics ot
New York and vicinity, and especially
the Irish element of that faith, are preparing a great reception in honor ot
Cardinal Logue, the head of the Catholic church in Ireland, who is due to arrive here tomorrow. Cardinal Logue la
coming to attend the great celebration
to be held next week ln honor of the
centennial of the archdiocese of New
York. He will be the central figure ot
a notable assemblage of prelates that
will Include archbishops, bishops and
priests from many parts of the United
States  and Canada.
His Eminence Cardinal Michael
Logue, Archbishop of Armagh, has been
primate of all Ireland shite 1887, prior
to which time he had been coadjutor to.
the primate. Cardinal Logue is a man
of great learning and Is renowned for
his piety. He does not mix in Irish politics, but takes an interest ln the country's welfare and knows how to make
his influence felt when he deems It necessary for the public good. His almost boundless Influence among the
IriBh people was recently Illustrated ln
a striking manner. He objected to the
policy of one of the Sinn Fein party
organs which editorially spoke in favor
of forcing the priests out of politics.
Cardinal Logue denounced the paper,
and his mere denunciation was sufficient to drive the paper's readers away
to Buch an extent that It was found no
ronger profitable to run it.
Since announcement was made that
Cardinal Logue was to come to this
country he has received many invitations to visit Philadelphia, Chicago, Baltimore and other cities. His Eminence,
however. Is a man of much work and
little for travelling or holiday making.
It ls therefore very doubtful lf he will
extend his American visit beyond this
city, especially as he will have an opportunity of meeting here Cardinal Gibbons, Mgr. Falconlo and other eminent
churchmen  whom  he   might  desire  to

Oakland, Cal.. April 23.���An attempt

missile. Gallagher's hat was pierced
I by a splinter.   The house was wrecked.

Thursday, April  23,  1908.
At a lime when nearly every day
brings a new revelation of stealing
lrom the Dominion treasury by member* or friends of the party in power,
it i.-, Impossible to avoid the Question
"What about Sir Wilfrid Laurier?" To
whuiu, il not to him, is tlie country entitled tu look for lhe preservation of its
wealth and for the punishment of the
spoilers? is it to be accepted, as covering all the crimes exposed, that because tbe premier hlmsell is not a
tniel we must forgive ail the rest?
We have repeatedly pointed out Uiat
either Bir Wilfrid takes strangely little
interest In details oi public affairs or
else be is knowingly a party to the rewarding ''i criminals, insplte ol all tbe
horrible exposures of the uuiurio election trials, in spite of his "Hug the
Machine*1 cablegram, W. T. R. Preston
is still au employee Of the government.
The civil service commission has
made a very definite report showing a
decidedly dangerous condition iu several departments. Then.* was an outcry even from the Liberal press for the
punishment of some one. All thut has
happened is that Mr. Hrodeur, the minister most severely criticized, is allowed to appoint a specially instructed
commissioner to (ind fault with the Dormer  report   if  possible.    There  is  no
value in Investigations, however much
courage they may indicate in lhe premier, unless there is some evidence
of an intention to punish the guilty aud
pi event a recurrence of the crime. AI
ready there 1ms beeu so much proved
with so little result thut the country
hus lost faith lu .Sir Wilfrid Laurie7s
Of the conditions revealed hy Major
Jlodgfus   account  of his   dlsagieeinent
with his political superiors in the service of the Grand Trunk Pacific the
Vancouver Province says in part:
"The charges���charges oi th.* most
circumstantial nature have bees laid
and it remains for the government to
answer them and in the event of a failure to answer them satisfactorily, to
dismiss the high officials who are the
agents of the administration in this
nefarious attempt to swindle the public
If the construction of tlie Eastern
branch ut this transcontinental road Is
continued without an adequate inquiry
and the removal of offending officials,
the country will be forced tt) the conclusion that the Laurier Governmenl
has at last abandoned all efforts al concealment and has decided to make tbe
best use of the time left to it in apportioning the public mony among its
party  favorites.
"And there can be no doubt of tho
splendid opportunity which the construction of this (-astern branch of the
Grand Trunk Pacific will afford in tne
execution of such a design. This portion of the road, from Winnipeg, in
Manitoba, to Moncton, X. P., it is unnecessary to state, is being constructed
by the government, and when completed, It will be handed over, practically
as a gift, to the Grand Trunk Pacific
Corporation. In itself that is a gigantic
graft, one which the old Conservative
administration In Its most corrupt days
would not have dreamed of attempting.
Aa tlie governmenl then Is constructing
the road, it has proceeded to make it ol
Immense use to the putty before making it a present to the company. A
host of officials at generous salaries has
been appointed in connection with construction and in addition to these officials, it has been planned io afford
jobs, during the whole period of construction to friends and supporters of
the government. Every means which
could possibly be adopted to Increase
the coat to the public and put money
in the pockets of place hunters, contractors and the large host, of camp
followers, who must be provided for,
has  been  taken  advantage  of.
A general meeting of the Shareholders of the Imperial ('.ml & Coke Com
pany. Limited, will he held nt the office of the Company, Room 7*, Sovereign Hank Building, Mom re;,]. Thursday, the Thirtieth day of April, Puis,
for the purpose of electing directors to

ing. to consider the financial  position
of the Company, and to adopt such
means as may he deemed most advisable with a view to arranging Ita flnan
epH, and for such other business an
may he legally brought, before the meeting. The Chair will he taken at 11 a.
Per Geo, Pyke, Secretary.
"But tho most deplorable feature of
Thfs exposure is the unfortunate light
in which it places uhe Premier, Sir
Wilfrid Laurier. Sir Wilfrid has been
proven to have had accurate information regarding the dishonest practices
which were being carried on in connection with this work. Major Hodgins
himself went to him, confident that by
so doing the evil would be remedied
and the guilty punished. The whole
matter was placed before him in derail
and the onlj resull was the dismissal
or Majoi lb'di; nis himself. How are
we to b< laud any longer tlie high personal bun* .t. et the head of an administration who encourages the worst
kind of corruption by his official sanction0 The ��hole attitude of Sir Wilfrid Laurie, towards the building of
this transcontinental railway has been
a buprise and a disappointment to the
people of Canada The enterprise was
the result of secret counsels within the
cabinet, nf conspiracies against the
}������ el ei ii,.- di partm. ut under which it
was to be launched. After dismissing
and 'li-- r edit Ing bis own mini-t. r of
railways, Sii Wilfrid practically Imposed uj'"!i the people tin- burden of building Mi.' iiiad which Was then to be given fo a corporation composed of political friend and supporters. Having forced th.tr measure throflgh parliament
be proceeded to make it a political engine for 'be financial ben- fit nf leaser
party favorites. Finally he has sanctioned Th- action of the department in
throwing open, so to speak, to a great
crowd from Quebec, who must be fed
ar the public trough. Is the man who,
having the power to decide whether
honest} or dishonesty shall be ibe policy "T bis party, deliberately determines that it shall abandon itself to
every form of corruption, worthy of respect and confidence because he does
no directly soil his own fingers with
public loot?"

Career df Latest Accuser of Spoils Party
at Ottawa.
Major Arthur Hodgins whose charges
against the G. T. P. commissioners have
brought him into the lime light, is well
known to old NelBonites but riot, perhaps, to those who have come here
within the last seven or eight years.
The career of the gentleman who
would not prove complaisant has been
a distinguished one. (iraduttling from
the Royal Military College, Kingston,
(Jut., in 1882, he was from that time
until the completion of the C. P. R. ln
18MI engineer on construction in the
prairies and mountain sections.
From JSSti to 1889 he was engineer
on construction of tho C. P. R. short
line through tbe Btate of Maine, and
in 1881*. engineer on conntruetion of the
C. P. R. extension from Toronto to
In 188!* he went to Mexico as engineer on construction of the Mexican
inter-Ocean from Vera-Cruz, hut left
ou account of ill  health.
Prom 18!*0 to 189i> he was in the
Kootenay country, llritish Columbia, residing principally in Nelson, practising
bis profession, and in 1898 he went to
youth Africa as lieutenant with the
first Canadian contingent.
During the South African war he was
promoted to the ianU ot major, and
went on the stuilf of Sir Percy Girouurd
as officer in charge of construction on
Imperial railways in the Transvaal and
Orange River colonies. He remained in
South Africa, and when peace was declared was appointed as the government superintendent engineer of railways in the Transvaal and Orange
River colonies.
Major Hodgins returned to Canada
about three years ago, and was appointed district engineer in charge of the
400-mile section east of Winnipeg on
the national transcontinental railway.
His resignation last October created a
great deal of unfavorable comment, and
it was freely asserted that more lurked
behind it than then was announced.
A son of Judge Hodgins of Toronto,
a Liberal of the old stamp, it was believed that his uncompromising rectitude bad proved an obstacle In his preferment  by the present administration.
Shakespeare's  Memory Kept Green.
London, April 38.���The customary
dramatic festival was held at Stratford-
on-Avon today in celebration of Shakespeare's birthday anniversary. The old-
world town was the Mecca for hundreds
of admirers and devotees of the immortal bard, among the number being many
celebrated literary and dramatic lights.
At present the various Shakespearian
societies throughout the country are engaged In plans for the erection of a
memorial which it is proposed to be
set up to commemorate the tercentenary
of his death, which will occur in 1916.
It is proposed to raise one million dollars, of which half is to be spent on
the monument. A line site In London
has been selected for the monument in
Park Crescent, adjoining Regent's Park
and looking down the imposing vista
of Portland Place.
