Thinks Hanging Hurts.
Philadelphia, April it.���The accepted
idea lhat execution hj hanging is a
painless operation was disputed by Dr.
E. A. Spil/.ka, the eminent brain specialist, before the annua] meeting of the
American Philosophical society which
began in Independence hall yesterday.
Professor Bpltska said that he had witnessed BI electrocution! at sing sing.
Auburn and IJanneuioru in New York
state and at Trenton, and live hangings
in Philadelphia. Electrocution was. he
suld. the most humane method of in-
iliriing the death penalty because it
was the most efficient, the speediest
ami the least painful and be advocated
iis adoption by the commonwealth of
Pennsylvania. In every ease of hang
ing tlie bean of the victim continues to

a half niinules. The struggles of men
Indicated efforts to find a support l'or

I leal h In many Instances, he was convinced, was purely due to strangulation.
Conditions of Annexation.
London, April lit.���It is understood
thut tin- conditions under which Great
Britain is willing ta recognize the annexation of the Congo Independent
state to Belgium, communicated to the
Belgian government by Sir Edward
Grey. Ihe secretary of foreign affairs.
Included the establishment of free trading nnd the uholitiotl of forced labor.
The delay in the receipt of a reply from
Belgium is interpreted to mean that the.
government finds it difficult to comply
with Great Britain's demands, probably owing to the attitude of numerous
Companies holding monopoly conres
sions.
Wholesale Arrests.

The murderer of a policeman yesterday

hundred workmen in local factories

I'hicnyo. April 14���Opposite action
wa< taken by railroads east of Chicago
ana west of Chicago regarding reduced
rates for the convention today. The
eastern roads decided to make a rate oi
one and one naif cents a mile, lint tin

London. April ^1 repi  I tion of the
great shipbuilding     .   :e of the nineties
one of the costliest ..nd most serious
contests iu the annals ot British labor,
Is now impending. The time limit fixed by the Shipbuilding Employers'
Federation within which ihe striking
workmen on the northeast coast may
return to work will expire tomorrow.
The men have twice vuted against reluming to wurk un the terms offel
ed and if Uiey persist iu their refusal
all the shipbuilding yards in the country will be dosed. Sutii a lockout
would involve fully a Quarter of a million of people.
The ship workmen on the northeast
coast have been 011 strike since last
January. Two disjiui.es are Involved in
the controversy. The earlier ln poim
of time uud the larger Is that affecting the engineering trades. The parties to it are tlie Norlheusl Const Engineering Trades Employers' Aasocla
tion and certain trade unions of which
the Amalgamated Society ol Engineers
is by far the must Important Most 01
tlie employers forming the association
are also shipbuilders. Others are build
era of engines for other than marine
purposes, so that the interests concerned extend considerably beyond ship
building on the side of both masters
und men.
1-aBt November the Employers' As
soclation. having come lo the conclusion
that they must propose a general reduction of wages on account of depres
sed trade, sent out notices to that effeel
to the men employed in engine shops
boiler sho|is and foundries. They pro
posed a reduction averaging live per
cent. The men are organized in twenty-
eight societies representing engineers,
machine workers, pattern makers, iron
founders, moulders, brass workers, boll
ertnakers. painters, and ninny othei
trades. The employers have various
agreements with these societies. In
some cases a month's notice, in others
two months' notice must be given on
either side of any proposed change of
wages, but to make the movement uniform two months' notice was given In
all cases. During tin' two months conferences took place, with the result thai
twenty-two out of twenty-eight union:
agreed to accept a reduction which
amounted to about half that proposed
by the employers, and was In the nature of a compromise,
With the unions which refused Uu
reduction, tin. Employers' Association
had a conference. Tlie proposals madi
by I tie employers nt this conference
which was the sunn tbat had alreadj
heen accepted hy ihe other unions, were
referred to a ballot of the nun. Tin
result wns against accepting the tends
offered by the employers. In accordanci
with ihls result the men left work tn
tlie estimated number of 7,000.
Meantime the second dispute, which
is of a precisely similar oharactei
arose in tlie shipbuilding yeards. The
parties to It ure. on the one aide,three
local shipbuilders' associations irom
the Tyne, the Wenr and Tees, actlnii
ill conceit, und. on the oilier side, nine
teen trade unions. Several of thesi
unions are also concerned In ibe en
gineeritig dispi.te. The shipbuilding
dispute came on ubout a month after
the other. Pew men, comparatively,
are out now. bill if the employers put
Into eff*>cl their threat to close down
all the shipyards unless the strikers re
turn 10 work tomorrow, widespread idle

Jubilee Pageant.

his bodyguard and his inseparable com*
paniou on his American tuur. lu Ihe
latest issue of T. P.'B Weekly appears a
letter from Mr. O'Farrell describing tlie
beauties of Halcyon, U. C, and il will
interest many of our readers who kuow
���or should know��� the Arrow Luke
country.    He writes:
Twenty years ago, when I lirst sailed
over the lonely waters of the Arrow
Lukes, there was not a house, or a hut,
or a log cabin, on either shore for its
whole 150 miles. Not a hut or a hunter along its 1100 miles of shoreline;
all was strange, weird, wild, fascinating beauty. We did pass one canoe, ln
which we recognized some Kootenay Indians because of the uncanny and most
melancholy chant that tell upon our
ears. A Corsican priest lived among
them and taught them ihls chant,, and
this was their weird Interpretation of
it. Hut save these few wandering savages the Arrow Lakes were as lonely
twenty years ago as in the dawn of
the world's existence. Some of the old
voyageiirs hud seen them, aud some
intrepid hunters had climbed the pusses
of the mountains above the lakes, and
had looked down in wonder, akin to
that which filled the soul of Plzarro at
lhe lirsl sight of the Pacific, when ull
his men looked at each other with "a
wild surmise, silent upon a peak In
Da rien."
And I have seen the wilderness transformed into fields of golden grain, and
orchards, and flowers? and gardens, and
lawns, where happy children played
and sang, and have seen men aDd women grow young and happy, being
sharers in the creation of a new world
of altars and of happy homes. Only
yesterday 1 sailed over these wonderful
iak.-s again, hut this time It was not
in a skiff, as twenty years ago. I was
in one of the excellently-appointed Canadian Pacific steamers that ply daily-
bet ween Robson and Arrowhead. Already along the shores on either side
the pioneer has done his work, and
the meadow- and the orchard and the
garden have displaced the wood. The
pear tree, the cherry, the apple, and
the peach tree have supplanted the pine,
tin lit-, the tamarack and the cedar.
Gin on every side by mighty mountains, neither the typhoons that lash
the Pacific to fury nor the tornadoes
that scourge the plains can touch these
shores. Storms and tempests are utterly unknown, and as equally unknown
are the extremes of heat and cold.
Picture Killarney on a vast and far
more beautiful scale, and free from
tempests aud mists and rain, and you
begin to realize the Arrow Lakes, with
their  beauty, grandeur, and  attractive
11,-SS.
You are right in directing the atten
Hon of your renders to British Colum
bin. Tlie picturesque beauty of Its
lakes and rivers, and Ihe sublime gran
dour of its mountain scenery find no
parallel upon this globe of ours. And
its climate and soil are all lhat are
desirable for men or women who love
open air life and bracing mountain
-lit", and an occasional hunt for cariboo
and elk. The apples grown on the
shores of these lakes are the finest 1

woods, and In the absence of strong
winds Hint permit the growth and bios
som, nnd bloom of the apple in this
country as nowhere else on earth. One
rancher told me he realized $800 off
one  acre  of  fruit.
Sometimes I think of building a rhnl
et over there on the other side of the
hike where slopes the llulcyon Moun
tain. There you can now see the dark
woods rising one plateau above another.

away for flowers and fruit nnd mead

the bosom of those mountains, .lust
think what a place Ibis would be to.

that prevails In Wall Street! It Is
only four miles across the lake from
these wonderful mineral springs of Hn!
cyoi. Over there blows the softest

amended this session in some particulars and put Into Immediate force. The

matter with the government. Thejr
want Immediate action. Laurler promised Immediate consideration.

POLLARD A  WADE.
BISHOP OF THE iNORTH
Head  of  the   Church   in   Yukon   Arrives
at Vancouver en Route to Mother
Country for Synod.
Vancouver, April 2<\.���Very Uev. I.
C). Stringer, familiarly known in Canadian Church of KriKlaml t-ircloH an
l*i..h��i|i uf the) Yukon, with his family,
(.nhtilsiliiK uf Mrs. Stringer and three
children, Ib spending a week In Vancouver baton soing earn on his way to
attend ihe I'uu Anglican (joii^iexK,
which nu'eiH in London. Kngland, in
June of this year. Bishop Stringer and
hta futnU) are staying at the Ihidiuintou
Hotel.
hishop Stringer went to the Yukon in
L903, Ills lirst charge being at White-
liorse, but ill 1905 ho wus appointed
bihhop to succeed the late lamented
Bishop Bompas, so widely and respect-
tolly known in Western Canada. Bishop
Bomptvl died the year after the appointment of his successor. Bishop Bom pan
had formed the diocese of Yukon, which
was formerly a pail of the diocese of
Selkirk. The ecclesiastical boundariea
of the diocese are the same as the geographical boundaries and include all
tin- territory properly included in the
Yukon.
Bishop Stringer has seven ordained
ministers in his charge as well as several lay agents, and these practically
cover the work of the Church of England in that territory. Several of the
missions are to Indians, of whom there
are about 1,000 in tbe Yukon, their
hands or tribes consisting of an average of about 50 members. The MoOfte>
hides and the Selkirks are the chief
bands and, in common wilh other tribes,
have headquarters tu which they return
after hunting expeditions.
Speaking of th.* genera] moral condition of the Indians iu the Yukon Bishop
Stringer says that, as in all other places
where the white population has come
into contact with the natives, the latter
have degenerated. This ts not wholly
because of the Introduction of "lire-
water," but because many of the whites
were new tu the Indian associations
and bought their cheaply made curios
at fabulously extravagant prices. The
haughty distrust, of industry peculiar to
the Indian was thus fostered aud the
result! have not beeu creditable.
Bishop Stringer says that when the
Anglican church missionaries first went
unong these northern Indians 40 years
ago. they were rather a superior race,
as natives go, but that cannot bo said
of Ihem today, half a century of communication with the whites have debauched them to a terrible degree.
Of the moral tone of the white population ot the Yukon Bishop Stringer has
a moderately high opinion. Making exception of the adventurers, renegades
and loose characters who are always
found In the wake of a mining camp,
the rank and tile, iho prospectors and
miners who have stable interests in tho
country, are of a moral and physical
fibre of which uo man need feel ashamed.
"By just blocking out a hundred or
two hundred of these and doing the
same thing in Vancouver, you would
llnd tlie average of morality as high
among these isolated human beings as
you would And it in your own beautiful
city," said the hishop.
Bishop Stringer has had an extended
experience in missionary work in the
Arctic regions, having tirst gone into
the work under Bishop Reeve lu 19U2.
and being appointed to the missions of
the Arctic coast, with headquarters at
Hersche] Island, In the Arctic ocean.
Hero his work was among the Estpil-
maux, and incidentally among the whalers who anchored at that island, which
has the safest harbor in the Arctic re-
uions. As many as 17 whaling ships,
with lheir complement of men, anchored
in the harbor there each winter. The
Esquimaux hired out to the white whalers and after learning the business
went into it on their own account, devoting themselves chiefly to chasing
small whales, but occasionally drawing
the long bow for big game.
The bishop and his family will leave
for the east next Monday, ami Bishop
Stringer will proceed alone to London.
leaving his family ut Ottawa for a part
of the summer, lie will return to his
work in the Yukon next September.
Speaking of the Pan-Anglican congress, he said It way the lirst thing of
its kind in history, and a large number
of ths bishops of thai, church from all
parts of the world would attend and
participate in Hs deliberations. The
bishop will attend the synod of tho
Church of England In Canada, which
Convenes in Ottawa in September, on
his return  from England.
