J. 8. Dennis  Saya Kootenays Are  Attracting Many Settlers This Season.
J. 8. Dennis, land commissioner of
the C. P. K., was In Victoria the olher
day. In an Interview with one of the
papers, ' Dennis said there was a
great uomand for C. P. K. lands
throughout the province.
"Tho prospects for a record year ln
tho history of settlement In the province Is excellent," he said. "There are
more Inquiries than ever before for
lands These come from residents of the
llrltlsh IsleB. eastern Canada and the
l.'nlted States. For the most part the
enquiries ure for fruit lunds."
The Kootenays are attracting a great
deal of intention In this line, and Mr.
Dennis Ihinks that the Columbia valley
and other areas of tbal pun of the province will become very important fruit
produdcers. The staple production will
be apples, which, after all, Is perhaps
the most satisfactory fruit which can
bis produced. This ls due to the fuel
that there ls not the same need of
haste in the marketing of the apple
us there Is with other perlshuble fruits,
such as peaches and plums.
Mr. Dennis thinks thut the valleys of
the Kootenays will yet become the
great producers of apples in tho
Some of the City  Clergy  Combat  Request of Miners���Rev. F. H. Graham
Will Not Commit the Church.
ln several of thc city churches yesterday forms of petitions, asking the
provincial government to refuse the request of the boards of trade, and of the
meeting of miners, smeltermen and
lumbermen, that the Lord's Day !Act
be not enforced In connection with the
mining, Bmeltlng and lumbering Industries, were read.
At St. Saviour's yesterdiy morning
Rev. F. II. Graham mentioned the petition and its object but declined to read
It, or recommend it to his congrega
tion for approval
He remarked that the chief ensctlng
clause of the act already contained 23
sub-clauses setting forth exemptions.
He was not convinced, nor did ho consider It Incumbent upon him as a clergyman to decide, that no other exemptions were required.
Moreover, among both the supporters
and opponents of the act were respected and consistent members of his own
congregation. He declined to create a
line of cleavage between them, or to
add to the commandments by committing the church, even the Nelson branch
of It ,to either Bide of a controversy
which Is not essentially religious, and
the decision of which must be according
lo expediency. In which he was quite
content to admit the legislators to be
better Informed und probably better
Judges thun he wns.
As the congregation dispersed the
comments thai were made were of almost unanimous approval of the rector's utterance.

Winnipeg, March 18���The Overseas
Limited arrived in Winnipeg last night
at midnight, after having made a record run between Fort Williams and
Winnipeg. The time from Montreal
was slightly behind the time made on

more than tho difference will be gained
between here and Cnlgnry.

term or years, arrangements have beon
completed for a now line of Btonmers to

Notorious Machine Juggler Still in Office
Government Blocks all Attempts to
Investigate Frauds and "Graft*'
of Gvil Servants*
Ottawa, March 18.���There is a now
development in the oase of the xprth
Atlantic Trading com puny whose contract was terminated lust November.
Under Uie contract the company was to
receive $G per head for Immigrants.
This agreement could only b*' terminated on four year's notice unless the
terms were violated. Mr. Oliver stated
that there had been a breach of the
agreement and so cancelled the contract. Doubtless the real reason was
the exposures or tbe last session of the
various frauds connected with the contract itself and the popular condemnation of the whole business. But the
sequel of It is that the company is
claiming large damages, and that a
government officer sent to Europe to
investigate has come back with the report that the company has done all
that the contract required. Seeing that
Mr. Smart, who as deputy minister, ne-
gotlated the contract with the company has now become the Canadian
agent of the contractors and Is pushing
the claim the country may be prepared
for the worst. As the company was
getting $100,000 a year from the government, the bill will be a pretty heavy
Meanwhile Mr. Preston, Inventor of
this contract. Is In South Africa, though
he is under salary as the commercial
agent of Canada in China and Japan.
He is receiving a -salary of $3000 and
expenses. How much he ls receiving
from other sources no one knows, but
his chief occupation at present appears
tn be to boom South Africa as a field
for farm immigrants from Great Britain. Kngllsh papers are publishing a
series of letters from Mr. Preston, of
which the following two sentences may
be taken ns samples:
"The Dutch settles have proved lhat
a return, unequalled in other colonies.
can be readily had here for a very mod-
orate expenditure of farm labor."
"South Africa can more readily support
millions of population ln ite agricultural
possibilities between Table Mountain
and the Zambesi than Canada cun between Winnipeg and thc Rocky mountains."
Are the people of Canada paying Commissioner Preston a large salary to tell
English farmers that Canada is not as
good a field for them as South Africn?
The country is paying heavily to induce
farm laborers to come to Canada rather
than go elsewhere, and here is an officer
in the pay of the government spending
his time and efforts to persuade British
farmers to go elsewhere rather than
come here. Why does Mr. Preston do
this? He Is not u man who works without motive. Is he In the pay of some
syndlcute which Is working up Immigration to Bouth Africa? Is he trying to
vindicate hla Nortb Atlantic contract
and his own record as nn Immigration
officer In England by causing the immigration to fall off when the contract
is cancelled and he ha.**, quit bis Job?
Sir Richard Cartwright, who is Mr.
PreHton's chief, has bS&n questioned
but will only say thai he Ib waiting for
information. Sir Richard is entirely too
The house divided on straight party
lines to vote down the following motion:
"The government ought not to continue In office public servants who, tn
violation of their duty, mnke use of
thii- official position to promote their
private interest."
This motion, moved hy Mr. Boyce, of
Algoma, seems reasonable. Sir Wilfrid
Laurier admitted that, the principle
stated in the motion was sound, but
called upon his followers to vote lt
down becuuso the mover Introduced it
as a condemnation of Obed Smith, commissioner for immigration at Winnipeg.
No doubt Mr. Northrup who opened the
d^cusslun with a sfatement of the easi*
against Smith, ns well as Mr. Boyce.
Mr. Lennox. Mr. Borden, Mr. Foster
uud other opposition speakers, reflected
severely on a government officer and
still more severely on tlie department,
of the interior which excused and even
justified his course.
This is the case: .1. Obed Smith has
u salary of $:t,000 a year with various
perquisites. He is the chief immigration officer in the Northwest. Mr. Smith
Is not satisfied with his duties and his
salary but speculates heavily in lands.
Recently he put through a sale of 47,-
000 acres at $6.66 an acre to parties in
Vermont.      The  New   England   people
claim to have been deceived, tu that a
block-of 7.800 acres was sold to other
parties, whereas, the Vermont men
thought they were getting It all. They
sue(* Smith and his partner and got
judgment for $14,00) damages, the
judges considering that the plaintiff
had   boen  deceived.
The charge tliat Commissioner Smith
made use of his position to promote his
private Interests rests on his evidence
in th:s trial. He swore that Homestead Inspector Ridingtou, In the discharge of his duty, sent him reports
which he u��ed/ In making the sale.
Copies of these documents, and in one
case, an original, were taken away by
the Vermont promoters, who seemed to
havo been furnished with much official
Information. Now, the inw provides
that sn employee of the department of
the Interier shall not, without authority,
diHclpac Information of which he becomes possessed In the discharge of
his duties. For tlie rest we quote Mr.
ObeiJ Smith's testimony. After stating
that KJr. Powell, one of the defendants,
had carried off at least one of Mr. Rid-
Ington's reports, leaving no copy in the
office, Mr. Smith testifies:
Question���Who is Mr. Rfdlugton who
sent you this report? Answer���One of
the homestead inspectors up there.
Question���An employee of the Dominion government?   Answer���Yes.
Question���Paid by salarv? Answer���
Question���And you have made use of
government officials to report for you
ln order that you might make money
on the side?   Answer���Yes. that. Ie true.
So that we have the chief Immigration officer of the government, whose
business lt Is to place immigrants on
the kind and is well paid for doing it,
giving his time and attention to land
speculation, using the reports of other
government officers to assist him in his
trading and in making money on the
side. In this particular deal Mr. Smith
and his partner seem to have made
about $30,000 profit for themselves.
Whether he has been guilty of deceiving the New England speculators or
not. he has got the department involved In an unpleasant story. The
worst of it Is that both Sir Wilfrid
ond the minister of the interior supported Mr. Smith'and called upon the
House to vote down Mr. Royce's reasonable resolution because it seemed
to reflect upon a government officer.
This concern for a land speculating official is in sharp contrast lo the conduct of the government a short time
ago when it dismissed a village postmaster, receiving about one-third of Mr.
Smith's salary, whose only offence was
that he was reported to have another
Interest In a small grocery In another
nart of th*0 town. The government
party In the House voted to a man
against   Mr. Boyce's motion.
To Be Superannuated.

Victoria, March 18.���It is very probable that during the present session
of the legislature one of the oldest civil
servants of the province will be super-
ftnnuated. Col. Wolfenden. King's
printer, hau )>een over 50 years In
harness, and would probably welcome
retirement from duties which are pearly becoming more onerous. No department of the government is developing
more rapidly than that, of the printing
bureau, where fees and business from
timber notices ts more immediately felt.
Mr. Wolfenden is the last of the old
guard with the exception of the depu-
'y minister of finance, Mr. Smith, and
Auditor-General Anderson, Mr. Gore
having retired a year or two ago from
the lands and works department. Mr.
Wolfenden will probably retire on full

Ocean Liners Wrecked
White   Star   and Elder-Dempster
Lines Losers���Passengers
and Crews Saved.
London, March 18.���Details were re
celvod this morning of the disaster to
the White Star Line steamer Suevlc,
homeward hound* from Sydney, N. S.
W\, by way of Capetown, with n-early
6ul) passengers and crew on board. She
struck the Brandts rocks, cloae under
the Lizard lighthouse, at about 10:30
last night, and will probably be a total
wreck. Lifeboats and tugs from the
Lizard and Falmouth soon reached the
scene and together with the Suevlc's
own boats, commenced landing the passengers. The women and children were
first sent ashore. They were no fewer
than 1G0 children on board, many of
Ihem being babies In arms, whom the
local fishermen and their wives lifted
out of the boats and carried through the
surf to nearby cottages. A fresh sea
and fog hampered early land operations,
but the fog lifted about 7 this morning and from then forward boats loaded
with passengers were sent ashore in
quick succession.
London, March 18.���Almost within
sight of the wrecked White Star Line
steamer Suevlc, the Elder-Dempster
steamer Jebba, from Calabar, Lagos
and other West African ports for Plymouth and Liverpool, ran on the rocks
under the cliffs near Prawlc Point early
this morning. Her 70 passengers, many
of whom were soldiers invalided home
from the West Coast of Africa, and her
crew, were safely taken ashore by the
breeches buoy. Heavy seas are breaking over the steamer, rendering the lifeboats, which are standing by the vessel, useless. The Jebba will prove a
total loss.

Winnipeg, March 18.���Three Englishmen, named S. Aimer, F. Russell and
E. J. Keefe, who only arrived In Canada
via the steamship Lake Champlaln two
weeks ago. have recently been up
against a nasty experience that they
will not forget for a while, and incidentally their purses are depleted to
Ihe extent of about $16 each, which
was about the sum total of their cash
j.boul one week ago they were employed by the Scottish, Scandinavian
Employment agency to work ln the
hush at Fort Alexander, at the upper
s nd of Lake Winnipeg. They were told
to proceed to Selkirk, where they
would be picked up by the teams of
the Sproule Lumber Co., the concern
or which they were going to work.
Arriving at Selkirk they were obliged
in wait there two days and pay hotel
are before the sleigh went north, and
it required a long, cold drive of two
lays up the lake before they reached
their destination.
Here they were told by the foreman
that he did no*t need any men and had
given no Instructions to an employment
agent to send men to him.
They arrived ut camp on Saturday
laat and wore given their board until
Monday in return for chopping a huge
pile uf wood.     ,
The foreman then advised them to

about three miles away They started
nut according to Instructions, but lost
iheir way and It was many hours before they found the house.

The First Methodist Church in Victoria
to be Torn Down.
The old Methodist church bluldlng,
at the corner of Pandora and Broad
streets, Victoria, is about to be torn
down. With its demolition will close
the first epoch of Methodism ln British
Columbia. Governor James Douglas

August 15th, 18S9, some six months
after the arrival of the first Methodist
missionaries to Vancouver Island and
British Columbia. From tbe memoranda placed ln the -corner stone ot

Charge to Jury in Thaw Caae Will le
Delivered by Justice Fitzgerald
Next Monday.
New York, March 18.���When the
Thaw trial ls resumed today, the question of admitting the Hummell affidavit
will be taken up. The outlook la that
this sensational document will be admitted, read and spread on the record.
This work, It la expected, will be concluded at the morning session and will
probably complete the state's rebuttal.
Both District Attorney Jerome and the
Thaw lawyers seemed to be agreed yesterday that unless something unexpected presented Itself, Hr. Delmas would
begin his witnesses ln sur-rebuttal this
afternoon or tomorrow morning.
Evelyn Thaw will probably be the
first witness called by him. Her testimony will be a contradiction of tbat
given by Lawyer Hummell regarding
tho affidavit. Whether Dr. Britton, Dr.
Evans and Dr. Charles Wagner, the defences experts, will be called again
Thaw's lawyer's did not seem sure yesterday, although lt is their Intention to
call Dr. Graham Hammond and Dr.
Smith E. Jollffe and possibly three or
four other alienists. The; expect that
the case will go to the jury by Monday
night next. Further examination and
sross-examlnation of witnesses, they
believe, will take three days. Mr. Delmas will want a full day for hia eum-
mlng up and Mr. Jerome the aame
amount of time, ln that caae Justice
Fitzgerald will probably adjourn the
court until the following Monday morn-
ng as the charge Is likely to take up
si whole session at least.

Yesterday throughout the world Irishmen and descendants of Irishmen, of all
classes, creeds and parties, honored the
day that is sacred to the memory of St,
Patrick, the kindliest and most lovable
of all the saints in the calendar, and
the pttTOO of the Green Isle.
The history of Ireland makes sad
reading. The bright passages are few
and far apart. A brief period of peace,
Prosperity and happiness, when Ireland
was tlie Mecca of the scholars of Europe. *as ended by the inroads of the
Northmen. Although the Irish fought
gallantly and won many victories, although the permanent results of the
Viking invasion are far less than in
either England or Scotland, the possibility of peace was destroyed. The Irish
became p?rforce a race of warriors and
havp so remained. The unhappy
island, torn by feuds, offered a tempting field to Anglo-Norman ambitions,
and could never be reunited to expel
the invaders.
The successive settlements in the
Pale, in Ulster and in the South were
for centuries armed camps, outside of
���which, a brave but disorganized rac��-
still weut.s its free, lawless way, until
the terror of the French Revolution
forced the Hritish government to make
future  rebellions impossible.
What the futnire may hold for Ireland we cannot fo reset1. Much has already been done to improve the people's condition industrially and educationally, and more yet remains. Certainly Ireland d�� serves well of the British Empire,
No race, within historic times, has
produced in proportion to its numbers
���bo many great statesmen, soldiers and
echolars. The Island has given to Britain her greatest military heroes past
and   present.
It is a strange and sad phenomenon
that the members of a race which has
waged a hopeless war at home for a
thousand years never fail to rise to
eminence in other lands.
But it is not only in the qualities that
make for success that the Irish are preeminent. They have been noted from
time immemorial for courage and loyalty, for the buoyancy of heart that
conquers defeat and for gallant devotion to lost causes.
The proverbial wit of the Irish is
not the least strange of the many anomalies of Irish national character. The
prevailing note of the Irish song is sadness, the sadness of hopeless struggle
and vain aspiration. Hut. like the alter-
nation of storm and sunshine in the cli.
mate of the Emerald Isle, the hearts
of the people respond quickly to any
gladdening impulse, and no othe race
has ever been blessed with so full a
gift of spontaneous and happy
It is for such qualities of head and
heart that the world loves the Irish,
and the "*vearing of the green" on St.
Patrick's Day Is an observance honored
Some of the Liberal papers, as anticipated, have already begun preparation for an apology for the Laurier government's refusal of Fair Terms for
British Columbia. They protest that
Sir Wilfrid and Mr. Fielding have
shown every disposition to consider the
case or this province, and that the case
may safely be left to them. The honesty of such a plea can only be credited
at the expense of the intelligence of
its author. The case of this province
has been stated again and again by Liberals as well as Conservatives. Its justice has been admitted, it is true, by
Sir Wilfrid Laurier. But a resolution
has been introduced by Sir Wilfrid
himself, in which the rights or this
province are practically ignored. Under
'he circumstances how can any sane
man plead that our case Is safe in Sir
Wilfrid's hands? And whal championship can we expect from any of our
members of the House of Commons?
The only hope of British Columbia is
In Its own legislature. That Ib why we
havc urged that on this subject party
Hues should bo forgotten and resolutions of protest passed unanimously. It
is a childish answer to accuse Conservatives of trying to make party capital out
of the question. Docs anyone doubt
that the protest would be any loss sincere and strong if R. L. Borden were
The Liberal press maintains a diplomatic silence on the subject of the approaching colonial conference, although
an attempt is being made to hurry the
session of the Dominion Parliament
through so that Sir Wilfrid and his col-
leagaea may reach London in time. At
the last conference, and several times
since, Sir Wilfrid Laurier has opposed
ail suggestions made in other colonies
looking to closer union and mutual assistance. In the name of Canadian Independence he has declared that Canada can neither bear any share of the
burden of Imperial defence, nor give
any undertakings as regards commercial preference. Canadian independence,
without an army or navy, would be a
farce. Acceptance of imperial protection and persistent refusal lo consider
its cost is humiliating to the manhood
of Canadians, but evidently not to Sir
Wilfrid aud his colleagues. Between
the veiled disloyalty 0f the Canadian
government and the blindness of the
Little Englanders, now in power at
London, it is seriously to be feared
that the cause of Imperial unity will
suffer rather than gain by this year's
The excitement over the Lord's Day
Act is already subsiding. No attempt,
presumably, wili be made by the agents
of the Lord's Day Alliance to secure
Its enforcement until the intentions of
the provincial government are declared.
Many members of the alliance have
angrily protested that the provincial
government has no power to prevent
the enforcement of the act. and that
the attorney-general must give his consent to prosecutions for Its violation.
I* the revernd gentlemen are honest
iu their protestations, which we cannot
doubt, why do they not begin proceedings against the publishers of Sunday
papers, whose violation of the act is
the most open and the most easily established?
At the parliamentary inquiry into the
allegations of a "combine" among western lumbermen. A. E. Watts, of Watts-
burg, was granted permission to cross-
question several witnesses. He drew
fiom one hostile witness an admission
that his firm had not been refused lumber by any British Columbia manufacturers since 1904, and from another that
he knew that there were mills in Mritish Columbia operated without control
by, or understanding with, any association.

The following is an extract from a

Columbia's claim for Fair Terms:
To tbe Editor of The Financier.���In
your issie of the 19th inst. ihere ap

I will not deal with these heads of
claims, but wish to point out that then-
are other reasons quite as important
by which I). C. is entitled to better terms. When lhat province wenl
into the Confederation Its total popula
tion was ahout 10,000 whites. They had
little knowledge of the value of the
province, and at that ttnio practicaili
no public works of Importance except
the Cariboo road had been constructed,
whilst the other provinces on joining
the Confederation bad already built a
net work of roads, had been thoroughly

of these works of development was

Confederation. On the other hand. Hritish Columbia had to carry out all these
worlss herself after Confederation, and
some thousands of miles of trails and
roads, hundreds of schools, public offices, court houses, jails, etc., have been
built, and hundreds of thousands of
acri-fi of land surveyed at the expense
or the province since that time; the
cost of these works was. owing to the
character of the country, fully three

Gathering at Strathcona  to  Bay  Farewell to Belvflle Tomklns���Tribute!
to Popular Manager.
The Strathcona Saturday night was
the icene of a function which will not
soon he forgotten by any who took part
ln lt. The occasion was a presentation by guests past and present to Del-
vllle Tomklns, the retiring manager.
At 9 o'clock the guests gathered ln
lhe dining room. This table-, had been
arranged lengthwise by Manager R. O.
Webb, who wuh ln the ssscret, and Sheriff S. P. Tuck, tbe senior guest, took
the chair.
Mr. Tomklns was escorted to a seat
on tho right of the chairman by Mr.
Webb, while all stood and sang In tones
of unmlstakeablo sincerity, "For He's
a Jolly Good Fellow."
The chairman then read:
"Mr. Belvllle TomkinB, Hotel Strathcona:
"Dear Sir,���A few of your numerous
friends and acquaintances, most of
whom have known you for many years,

been associated with the public in the

learn of your departure from Nelson
and we all Join heartily in wishing you
and your wife success, long life and
happiness wherever you may cast your
The sheriff then added his own tribute of esteem and regard, after presenting the guest of the evening with a
magnlflccnt diamond ring anil a beautiful cut glass vase, the gifts of many
grateful guests to himself and Mrs.
Tomklns respectively.
"Ben" replied briefly and very happily ln spite of the surprise of an entirely unlooked-for-gift and the discovery of the warmth of the friendships
he had made.

Mr. Webb then made a presentation,
on behalf of himself and Mra. Webb, of
a splendid gold p!n Bet with a fine garnet. Mr. Webb told of his reluctance
to close a deal which involved the retirement of so successful and popular a
manager. He added that Mr. Tomklns
himself had urged him not to hesitate,
while thanking him for the consideration.
Mr. Tomklns tendered his thank-a to
Mr. and Mrs. Webb, and wished them
entire success.
Cigars and other refreshment* then
went round and an Impromptu programme was organized. Telegrams of
regret for absence were read from N.
L. Mclnnes and W. Doull, Jr.
R. 8. Lennie testified to the popularity of Mr. and Mrs. Tomklns, not only
lit Nelson, but with viBitorB from all
ports of the  world.
Blake Wilson, one or the late owners, paid a tribute to the changes effected in the fortuneB and In the value
of the Strathcona during Mr. Tomklns'
1 management. He hoped that we would
not leave Kootenay but would again
be the host of Nelsonltes, if not In
the city, not farther away than Kootenay Lake.
Other speakers who expressed their
appreciation of Mr. Tomklns and their
regret at his approaching departure,
were F. A. Starkey, N. J. Cavanaugh,
Col. McDougall, Dr. Arthur, J. A. Irv.
Ing, E. A.i Llndsley, Mayor Gillett and
R. J. Clark.
Mr. Webb, speaking again, added to
hiii regrets, and promised to try to
serve his guests aB faithfully and acceptably   as   his   predecessor.
Musical numbers were contributed by
S. A. Wye, F. M. Chadbourn, A. M.
Whiteside, and by a trio composed of
F. W. Guernsey, of Trail, W. Anderson-
of Cascade, and F. A. Starkey. The
gathering lasted long enough to welcome St. Patrick's Day.
During the evening Mrs. Webb was
introduced to the assembled guests.
She was greeted with cheers and "She's
a Jolly Good Fellow," made a brief acknowledgement and retired.
Mr. Tomklns will remain in the city
till Wednesday or Thursday.
