oienl that one result of King Kdward s visit to Franca has been a tentative agreement for an official vlsii of
President nUllerea to l.undou next

uf satisfaction here. It is undcrstuod
that President Kallleres' visit will be

government's intention to maintain
Great Britain's unassailable supremacy

given In a manner to please all parties,
and to Inspire conlldence thut there
would be no relaxation In Ihe efforts
lo maintain the navy up lo the strength

of his statement  Mr. Asquith said:
"I hope that Is quite explicit. II Is
the policy of His Majesty's government.
It remains on record and it ought to
reassure the house that we do no! Intend in this matter to be left  behind."

Financial Assistance for
Publicity Bureau
Meeting Poorly Attended���Support of
Council Recognized as Last Hope
for  Con.inuance.
Seventeen men. including the representatives of the preBs, attended the
meeting called lust ulght to organize a
Publicity Bureau" and arrange for
flndiug means ror ita work. The situation was fully aud lucidly set forth by
President T. U. Procter. A committee
was appointed to ask the city council
for support and report next week, when
If a continuance of the work is considered possible, officers for thu year will
hie elected.
The meeting was ca.-ec to orier
shortly after is o'clo..c with T (J. Proctor in the chair, jLbers ie. ���rut being
P. O. Ebbuit. secretary, \\. G. Gil', li,
Jas. Johnstone, D. 0. McMorr.s J. E

ley, A. Lean, T. A. Alrey, P. J. Gleazer,
W. H. Jones,' J. A. Irving and E. W.
\\ idtlowsou.
The minutes of the adjourned meetings were read and adopted.
The president's reiiort was presented
as  follows:
ln presenting a report ou the progress of the club during the past year
one cannot help being moved by mixed
feelings. On the oue haud satisfaction is felt wilh the amount of usetul
work done and on the other hand disappointment must be fell over the lack
ot support and in some cases the actual   antagonism   displayed.
Turning lirst to the work accomplished, piobably the most useful item was
the publication of 20,000 copies of the
pamphlet "Glorious Kootenay." This
booklet, which has received the warmest praise from man;- and diverse
quarters, was largely published by subscription, 12,750 copies being taken and
paid for by members of tbe real estate'
business, and 2,781 being taken by other
business concerns. Of the remainder
some were sent to the agent general
al Loudon, others to the tourist associations at the coast, the various railway
companies, etc., and Beveral hundred
have been posted to various persons
asking for information concerning the
district The total cost of the booklet
was (1,337.38. and the amount subscribed 11,198.50, leaving $138.88 to be paid
by the club.
The next important move was the
arranging for a district exhibit at the
annual fairs at Winnipeg, Brandon, Re-
glna and Moose Jaw. Unfortunately
the expenses entailed prevented the
tilth Trom handling the matter unaided,
and it was found necessary to get up a
special fund for this purpose and appoint a special committee to deul with
the mutter. The committee consisted
of F. A. Starkey, representing the board
of bradsi T. Morley, the Fruit Growers'
Association, and J. M. Lay. the 20.000.
club. A sum of (1,470 wus raised and
a creditable display got together and
sent to tlie east under charge of J. Mc-
Phee anil J. Hyslop and much Interest
was aroused over the exhibits made.
Twenty thousand special booklets were
prepared for distribution, culling attention to the advantages and resources or
this district, and a large amount of correspondence and enquiries resulted and
a large number of new seltlers are directly traceable to those eastern exhibits.
The third Item which 1 would call
your attention to Is the fact that the
club now haB its own office. ThankB
to the public spirit of a number of our
Oitltenl this building has been erected
(for the use of the club at no great expense to the club. We are Indebted to
the following gentlemen and firms as
A. Carrie, plans; Yale-Columbia Lumber Co., A. E. Watts. A. G. Lambert &
Co., and Kreyscher & Co., for lumber;
W. G. Gillett, doors, windows and superintendence; W. Collins, frame for
ssign; J. Hums. Interior woodwork;
Thompson & Douglas, sign and varnish;
G. Motion, hauling; Pearcy & Herb,
part painting;  Nelson Coke & Gas co���
paint for roof and base; Harry Wright,
labor, levelling, etc.; board of trade,
tables and specimens. The total cost
of the building Is estimated at 8602.5u,
and tuwunlH tills the club has had to
liud 1808.25. The office Is now well
equipped with u useful assortment of
specimens of local products iu the way
of ores, fruit, heads of guine. fish, maps
aud literature und forms a convenient
place of call for Uje traveller, the tourist or the settler. Iu this respect there
Is little cull for Improvement. We can
give the traveller, once he is here, all
the assistance he wants, but with regard to interesting the possible visitors
and settlers we are not so well placed.
Addltiouai advertising and publicity iu
needed to make tbe resources of tins
district more widely known but this is
entirely a matter of dollars and cents.
If more support is forthcoming more
advertising can be dune and although
much good work has been done this
year much more could have been
done bad funds been available. That
Ihe efforts of the olub have been sucf-
cessful the present satisfactory state of
the city's trade is evidence enough. I
do not mean to imply that the club is
entirely responsible for the volume ot
business done ln the city nor for the
tact that there is scarcely an empty
house iu the place, or that tbe hotels
and schools are overflowing, but 1 do
say tliat the present conditions are
largely due to Nelson's advantages as
a place of business, a place of residence
(and the centre of a rich district becoming more widely known, and the
20,000 club exiBts solely for the. purpose
The secretary then presented the
financial Btatenicnt of the 20,000 club
which appears elsewhere,
of making known these advantages. In
the face of the general prosperity of
the cily, the increased volume of business, the enhanced value of real estate.
and the general air of progress, I think
it would be a thousand pities to allow
this institution to fall to the ground,
and I must say lhat 1 fail to understand
tbe apathy that exists among so many
on the subject and the objection that
was raised by certain citizens when an
appeal was made to the city council
some little time back. We are not working for the benefit of any one class but
,'lor the benefit of the city as a whole
and as the city develops so every citizen, be he hotel keeper, real estate
man, lawyer, doctor, contractor, storekeeper, skilled mechanic or day laborer, derives benefit ln Increased business
or steadier employment.
Turning to the figures for the year
it will be seen that we have liabilities
amounting to 8595.$5 and cash in hand
amounting to 874.46, leaving an adverse
cash balance of 8520.90, but against this
we have the building and contents and
other assets which are valued at
The expenditure for the year included printing and part cost of building,
amount to 82,370.67, so that we cannot
be accused of extravagance in this direction, every effort has been made to
avoid excessive expenses. The receipts
were 82.447.13, including the subscriptions for folder account. The actual
subscriptions and donations towards
the working expenses of the club were
81,260.60 and that is the weak part, of
the whole affair. To give anything like
an efficient service at least twice that
amount Is required.
It appears to be impossible to obtain
the necessary support by means of'voluntary subscriptions and it seems to
me that the city must either take bold
or the institution must collapse.
There can be no question of the desirability and necessity nowadays of
such a city as ours maintaining an information bureau and I trust that the
feeling of the members are with me
in my desire to have the city put up at
least a large share if not all of the
funds necessary for the continuance of
such an lndlspenslble institution as a
publicity bureau for Nelson, and If desirable take entire control thereof.
A resolution was adopted that the
name 20.000 club be dropped and the
name "Publicity Bureau." be adopted.
Another resolution changed the date
of regular meeting from the first to the
second Tuesday of the  month.
On motion of A. W. Dyer the president was authorized to name a committee to wall upon the city council.
The chairman named W. G. Gillett, A.
N. Wolverton and J. M. Lay. The deputation was ordered to report to a
meeting to be held on Wednesday,
March  18th. at 8.30 p. m.
An Informal discussion then followed
on   the   possibilities  of the   institution.
J. M. Lay urged that the city council be asked for 81.000 straight grant,
without reference to the building, and
850 a month.
J. E. Annable agreed in part but
thought the monthly grant should be
8100. He wanted a standing advertisement in the eastern papers, In Toronto
and   Montreal.
A. Lean thought general public support should be assured before an appeal  be made  to the council.
W. G. Gillett favored asking the city
council to purchase the club building.
He sympathized with a council in wishing to see some security for money voted.    The building is fair security.
A. N. Wolverton urged that the club
ask for the minimum required.
After further informal dicussion the
committee appointed to appear before
the city council was authorized to sell
the building to the city, tf that should
prove to be an essential condition of
the grant from the council towsjrds
the  work  of the  bureau.
Such sale was then formally authorized. The committee was then authorized to propose or accept practically
anything   they   could   obtain.
The meeting then adjourned to Wednesday,'March  18th,  at 8.30 p.  m.

Chief   Witness    in    Recent   Trials   at
Boise  Adheres  to  Story  Though
it Means Death.
Caldwell, Idaho, March 11.���Harry
Orchard yesterday, before Judge Fremont Wood, in the district court, was
^allowed to withdraw his former plea of
not guilty entered at his first arraignment by order of the court, when he
stood mute, and entered another plea
of guilty to the charge of murder in
the first degree as charged ln the indictment. Judge Wood will sentence,
Orchard on  March 18.
Orchard pleaded guilty to having
killed former Governor Stunnenberg by
the explosion of a dynamite bomb at
the side gate of his residence here early
in the evening of December 30, 1905.
He was arrested for the crime on January 2nd, and in February confessed
that he was hirde to kill Stunnenberg
by Wm. S. Haywood, secretary; Chas.
H. Moyer, president, and George A.
Pettlbone, honorary member, of the
Western Federation of Miners. Haywood and Pettlbone were tried in Boise
and set free. The case against Moyer
was dismissed. Judge Wood questioned Orchard as to whether he fully understood the status of the case, what
it meant for him to plead guilty, and
if he understood that to plead guilty
to the charges ln the indictment meant
pleading guilty to the charge of first
degree of murder. Perfectly calm,
with no Indication of any emotion in
his face or voice, Orchard answered
that he had gone over the matter thor-
oughly with his attorney and had made
up his mind definitely. Judge Wood allowed the plea to be changed and set
the date for sentence. After the acquittal of Pettlbone, the opinion was
expressed ln many quarters that Orchard would take advantage of every
legal right he might have to obtain his
own release or a light sentence. The
stand he took yesterday was a surprise
to most persons and his attorneys say
it was entirely voluntary on his part
and against the advice of many who
have Been him and talked with him.

Wednesday,   March   11,   1908.
The local Liberal organ recently gave
prominence to an ordinary parliamentary return showing that ot 14 seals in
the commons vacant during the last
year eleven were won by Liberals,
three by Conservatives. The statement
was quite true but the impression our
contemporary tried to convey was false.
It would have been fair aud manly to
have staled, what is the truth, that ot
the 14 seats, 12 were vacated by the
deaih, disgrace or promotion of Liberals, two by the death of Conservatives.
In ihree the political complexion was
altered. One Conservative seat, St.
John, was captured by the Liberals;
two Liberal seats. Loudon aud Colchester, were caplured by Conservallves.
The net  result is a Conservative gain.
It is the iirst time in the political
history of Canada that a government in
office has lost ground ln bye elections.
And not only have they lost seats but
everywhere, except of. course In Quebec.
the constituencies showed increases In
Conservative, and decreases lu Liberal,
votes. But, of course, thut fact is carefully ignored by our contemporary. It
avoids diiect misstatement, but of malicious purpose seeks to mislead Its
In another later article, evidently reprinted from another organ of the same
mental habits, an account is given of
efforts made In several counties in
New Brunswick, in the recent general
election in that province, to prevent
corrupt practices, Westmorland Is
singled out as au example. There is
no harm in that. But the article concludes: "It is perhaps unnecessary to
add that in this riding all four Liberals
were elected." It that mcanB anything
it is an Implication that the Conservatives of New Brunswick were guilty of
corrupt  act*    in    the    campaign  to a
greater extent than their Liberal opponents, and that had a clean campaign
been watted everywhere in the province
the Liberals, not the Conservatives,
would   have  been   victorious.
Our contemporary knows that such
implication is absolutely false. Us
own news despatches the morning after
the election told of corrupt appeals
made by Hon. W. Pugsley, of the assistance given to Liberal candidates
in every possible way by all departments of tlie Dominion government,
and generally of an attempt on a wholesale scale, by promises from Ottawa,
to bribe the people of New Brunswick
into giving a verdict favorable to Liberalism.
In these circumstances it is hard to
see how any self-respecting Liberal can
imply, however circuitously, either that
the Liberals have gained in the bye
elections or that they waged a clean
campaign in New Brunswick. Even our
contemporary dare not make either assertion in straightforward, manly fashion, but apparently it has no scruples
against covert  insinuations.
The response to the call for the 20.-
000 club meeting was not nearly so
general as those who have done the
work so long were entitled to expect.
Hut tin- raw who did attend showed determination lo continue ihe good work
if it be I'ound possible by any means.

The Cranbrook Prospector says the
North Star continues exploring with
satisfactory results. Explorations will
be continued during the coming summer, and there is every reason to think
that the mine will do better this year
than last year.
Home Seekers at Cranbrook.
Cranbrook is said to be crowded with
bome-seekers. They are men who have
made fortunes farming on the prairie,
and are seeking a more congenial climate, where they can enjoy life, and
for such men tbe Cranbrook district
Is an ideal one.

Mr. Paterson of Cape Beale recently,

wireless telegraph operator at Pachena,
The message had evidently been intercepted by the telephone wire and conducted to Cape Beale. On inquiry the
operator at Pachena verified the signals, and the operators are wondering
how it came about that the message
could be heard at Cape Beale.

meats of the Russian guards, were recently secretly and summarily executed in the Petropavlosk fortress. Deep
mystery surrounds the affair, which
has caused the more speculation in
view of the wild rumors current within the past few weeks of conspiracies
against the imperial household. The
three men were suddenly placed under
arrest, a somewhat vague charge of
"furthering the revolutionary propaganda" being brought against them.
There was no trial, but two hours later there arrived a messenger from
Czarskoe-Selo bearing a triple death
sentence. It is considered significant
that tbe document should come, not
from the war minister, as under ordinary circumstances, but from the
Czar himself. The doomed men were
at once removed from the barracks
to the fortress. The officer in charge
stated that the Czar bad granted them
a last favor���the privilege of being
shot Instead of meeting death on tbe
gallows. One of them stammered a
word of thanks. His companions remained silent, and In another moment
the sentences had been carried out.
