Lisbon Will  Decide.
Lisbon, Feb. 25.���Whether or not a
republic Is soon to dlaplaat the monarchy of Portugal it is practically the
unanimotiK opinion here that the near
future will witness a violent political
HtruKKle in which the life of the monarchy may be at stake. The comparative tranquility since the assassin-ItionB
Is simply a breathin;- spell In which the
forces of the monarchy on the one hand
and popular government on the other
are being marshalled for the coming
conflict The masses of the people in
the country are ignorant and have hitherto been entirely Indifferent to tlie political battles which has convulsed the
capital. Lisbon, for political purposes.
Is Portugal, aud the republicans are con-
fldeut that the Influences of the capital
which they assert is almost unanimously republican, will sound the knell of Uie
Since the assassinations of King Carlos and Crown Prince Luiz the republican*, have bt-en joined by the progro3-
slsts and intend to make their campaign
for a change of regime openly In the
coming election. if deputy Almeida,
who Ih at the head of the republican
organization, declares that their campaign has virtually been made for them
by tho revelation of the abuses of old
parties, the exposure of the jxditica] corruption, the manner in which an army
of clients was maintained at the expense of the public treasury and above
all the secret advanci-s made to the
royal family, he claims, shocked the
people from one end of the country tt)
the other and destroyed forever the
prestige of the monurchy. They anticipate an ea��y and complete victory.
ntslnterested opinion, however, does
not consider Portugal ripe lor a republic. It is believed, in fact, that the
country would become a prey to the ambitions of politician- and like the Central American republics, would be without stability aud probably witness a
series of popular uprisings and dictatorships. .Nevertheless Uie fear exists In
these quarters that the monarchy Is
doomed. The young King Manuel has
yielded to the enemies of bis father aud

sponge out the dictatorship and to be-

Drummond  waa Thoughtless.
Toronto, Feb. 25.���Strachan Cox, a
well known broker, was charged in the

tin's from H. A. Drummond. Some time
ago, Drummond claims, he paid Cox $-!''>.'.
to secure him a seat on tlie Standard
stock and mining exchange. Drummond
was blackballed and sent to Cox to get
his money back, but the latter refused.
In the police court proceedings Cox says
he received the money but as Drummond owed him $1,100 he had retained

Council Resolves to Act at Once on
All Recomm'udatioas���Ggrcrnor
Was Rot at Fault.
The chief business transacted by the
city council last night was the consideration or Cecil B. Smith's report on
the power plant and the resolution to
act upon all the recommendations contained ln lt.
The council met promptly at 8 o'clock
with Mayor Taylor in the chair, others
present being Aldermen McMorrls,
Steed, Patenaude, Kerr and Hale. The
minutes or the last meeting were read
and adopted.
The finance committee reporte a payroll of t'02.10, which was adopted. The
committee also recommended (1) An
amendment to lu former report as follows: "That the foregoing scale of salary for civic officials be adopted as the
maximum except In exceptional circumstances, and tbat a bylaw be prepared
2. That an assessment of the city be
made during the month of March, that
the rolls be returned hy March 31st,
and that F. B. Lys be engaged as assistant assessor for the purpose.
The report was adopted.

The report of Cecil 6. Smith waa then
Pursuant to your telegram of Feb. 4th
and 12th, and to your letter of instructions of Feb. 19th, I examined your
hydro-electric installation at Donning*
ton Falls, on the Kootenay river, Feb.
21st. and beg to report to you as follows.
Present Installation.
(a) The tall race level of the whole
plant should be controlled by an overflow weir with cross walls at elevation
41 giving a working head of 60 feet
(except during a short period of extreme
high water) assuring steady working
conditions of turbines and incidentally
enabling the sufficiency tests of the turbines to be carried out.
(b) The draft tube ls Incorrectly designed and should not be replaced, but
a curved concrete draft tube emerging
below the weir level should be built by
filling the whole space below the turbine floor solid with concrete, a wooden
form being used to create the draft tube,
such a form of draft tube obviates any
shocks or losses of head and ts permanent.
(c) The present steel draft tube may
for the sake of speed In reconstruction
be adapted to act as the form for the
permanent draft tube of the present
unit if local boiler makers will do lt
cheaper and quicker than a wooden pattern can be built locally.
(d) Any tall gate or other means of
unwatering ls not warranted under a
proper reconstruction as the water
should be absolutely shut out ot the turbine pits even ln high water, except In
the mosl Infrequent contingency of
wanting to repair 'he turbine runners
during high water. This Is (particularly with two or more units) so unlikely
that the expenditure for any form of
gate, valve or stop logs is quite unwarranted.
(e) The present Installation ls, of
course, crippled by having to be In service Instead of heing shut down for
final adjustment, and until a second
unit is installed these adjustments can
never he properly made unless the
whole plant Is shut down. Tbe shaft ls
not running true, tho oiling 'systems
huve r .at been completed, being only ln
a temporary condition. There Is no Indication of a bronze runner having
been specified or Biipplled, and there Is
no mechanical brake. The latter ls a
convenience and not a prime necessity
and can be supplied and Installed at a
later date hy the corporation nt a small
cost, while as to tho runner lt will be
advisable to have the same examined
from time to time, and at the first signs
of pitting a spare bronze runner should
be provided.
The belt driven exciter Is not good
practice, and a prime necessity of the
second unit will be a separate turbine
driven exciter or 80 K. W., sufficient to
excite 4,000 K. W., aud the present belt
driven exciter should be retained as a
spare and to supply current for crane
and lights, arrangements being made to
drive it either from unit No. I or No. 2.
The governor is ol good design and
wheu properly adjusted will be found
satisfactory. The burden of perfect adjustment is on the contractors and
should be left there. Whenever they
claim that the whole installation ls
ready for Lestlng, this should be carried
out Jointly by the contractors aud hpdro-
electrlc engineers representing the city,
who by training, education aud previous
experience are cupable of carrying out
i these tests fully. These tests would be
more satisfactorily carried out alter the
weir has been built, otherwise the tests
cannot be complete or fully salisiaclory.
The general layout of the installation
can be improved in many uon-essentia,
particulars, and ut the time of installing the second unit a small auxiliary
room or chamber should be built in
which the oil tanks, coolers and other
miner equipment should be permaneut-
ly installed.
The switchboard  should  he  properly
set up in relatiou to an elevated switchboard gallery, from which the head operator can handle the whole plant.
Future   Construction.
In order to properly Berve customers
a second unit is essential, and the following construction should be undertaken at once:
(a) A second unit of from 750 to
1,000 K. W., tho turbine of which can
be probably Improved in general design
and located at considerably higher level
owing to the fixing of tail race level at
(b) A turbine driven exciter of 80
K. W. capacity fed by a separate pipe
line (about inches diameter) from the
fore bay.
(c) A 15-ton electric 3 motor travelling crane.
(d) A small sump pump for draining wheel pits and for flre and general
water service.
(d) A small auxiliary room for
smaller equipments, repair shop, tanks,
filters, coolers, etc., located In correct
relation  to a switchboard gallery.
(f) A short extension of power
house superstructure sufficient to cover
the turbine exciter and give crane runway beyond the present generator.
(g) Proper floorings for intermediate levels, and also partitions shutting
off penstocks, so that the various levels
will be habitable, after which with two
units in service these levels should be
well lighted and an additional operator
employed to keep bearings, etc., under
constant examination and attendance.
(h) A cheaply constructed head
house over the forebay gates, and the
gate operating mechanisms kept properly oiled and in free operating condition.
(i)    A second transmission circuit of
a somewhat  heavier  section   than  the
present circuit-
General   Remarks.
The plant can be put In good shape
with the above Improvements for ahout
$?."..uam. including engineering and superintendence, and will be able to give
absolute service of 1,000 K. W. and general service of 2,000 K. W., and future
extensions can then be made with ease
and economy. The turbine bas never
been tested, but, as specified, it is of
dangerously large capacity, being able,
under 60 foot head, to drive the generator to a 60 per cent overload. It
would be advisable to specify future
turbine units operating at 60 feet head
(which is the head under which the
plant will operate for ten months of
each year wilh a fixed tail race level at
41, plus or minus) for more than 35 or
40 per cent, above the rated capacity of
the generatory. The head race level
can be controlled when necessary by
the stop legs at overflow weir.
It Is recommended that the reconstruction and new installation be placed
in charge of a responsible firm of hydro-
eleclrlc engineers, as the special knowledge of design and construction of such
plants does not rest with the civil engineer or operating electrical superintendent, of ordinary practice.
The construction work, outside of machinery Installation, should be directly
In charge of parties designing the extensions.

The mayor added that he had conferred with Mr. Smith ln the presence
of R. F. Lawrence and R. A. Brown.
Mr. Smith suggested a log and stone
weir, hut. on consideration of high water
conditions, a solid cement weir was considered preferable. For the faulty design of the draught tube responsibility
lay with Clemens Herschel. A cement
draught tube must replace It. He recommended that the work bo done under the supervision of R. A. Brown und
W. Shacklcton, the latter at a salary of
t7 a day.
On motion of Aid McMorrls the report
and recommendations were adopted.
W. Shacklcton was present and stated
that he would begin work today. He

Indignation   of  Many  Voiced   by One-
Promise  and   Performance
Were Far Apart.
To the Editor of the Daily Canadian.
Sir.���I ask leave to trespass upon
your valuable space in order to register an emphatic protest on behalf of
the theatre-going public of Nelson. The
deliberate way In which Nelson people
are hocussed by advance agents, advertising managers, the management of
the local opera bouse and the press bas
become nothing short of an intolerable
public nuisance. Cut oft as we are by
our geographical situation from all that
is best in the world of entertainment,
we are naturally keen to take advantage of what is represented to us as being an unusual opportunity to bear
something out of the ordinary. And
wirh a regularity that is so persistent as
to seem deliberate the desire to hear
something good ls used as a lever to
obtain our financial patronage of
shows that are as cheap and vulgar and
worthless as It is possible for any show
to be.
Tbis barefaced defrauding of the public reached its culmination (so far) in
the entertainment that the Robert Gan-
thony aggregation had the hardihood
to present last night to one of the
largest and most appreciative audiences that the Nelson Opera House has
ever had.
The public's desire had been skilfully
whetted by ingenious advertisement. A
subscription list had been circulated
by Mr. Cosgrove who was prepared to
give tbe most glowing account of the
merits of the organization, and the
management of the theatre as well as
the local press had practically given
their pledge to the community that a
rare  treat  was  in  store.
In consequence the opera house was
crowded to its doors, and only three reserved seats remained undisposed of
when the box office opened (see Daily
News). And this excellent audience
were treated to���what?
A programme so puerile In performance and so devoid of merit that a
dime music hall would have hesitated
to offer lt to its patrons.
I see that the Dally News this morning speaks of "the ovation" received
by the performers. One cannot but
wonder that a Journal of such standing
would care to Imperil ita reputation for
veracity by making such a totally inaccurate statement.
Surely it ls time, sir, that the playgoers of Nelson should Insist that they
should be more fairly dealt with and
that the representations upon which
they extend their patronage to visiting
dramatic and entertaining organizations
should have sarnie small foundation in
Thanking you for your kindness ln
giving space to this protest from one
who ln common with many has endured
much. Yours, etc.,

Full Statement of Causes of Dispute
in Supreme Court, Which Postponed Sittings.
When the supreme court opened this
morning at 11.30 the registrar read the
assignment of Mr. Justice Martin by the
Chief Justice to hold court at Nelson
on Feb. 11th.
His Lordship then read a statement.
in part aa follows:
"It becomes necessary ln view of the
assignments and of the unprecedented
and embarrassing circumstances in
which I find myself ln consequence of
them that I should state what action
was taken ln regard to the said assignments and the situation arising therefrom, when the matter came before the
Full Court, consisting of Messrs.
Justices Irving, Morrison and Clement
and myself on the 19th Inst, in the appeal of Hunting vs. McAdam."
Mr. Justice Martin then stated that
he had been assigned to sit on that appeal, which was from the Chief Justice.
that later Mr. Justice Morrison had been
assigned ln his place, that he, Mr. Justice Martin, disputed the right of the
Chief Justice to change the personnel
of a court once constituted.
He also stated that on bis formal complaint to the Attorney-General against
Rule 1043, on several grounds, especially that it gave the Chief Justice power
to select thf judges who should bear
'appeals from himself, the latter had assured the Attorney-General in writing
that Mr. Justice Martin should sit on
all appeals from the Chief Justice and
that the two should never sit on tbe
same appeal.
His Lordship went on to state that
when assigned to Nelson he immediately notified the Chief Justice that lt was
impossible for him to come, because he
had a great deal of work immediately
in hand as well as arrears accumulated
during his former sittings in Nelson
and Rossland, but chiefly because ot
the assignment already given him to the
appeal in Hunting vs. McAdam, which
was for the same day as bis Nelson assignment.
"To assert my right to sit in Hunting
vs. McAdam and to object to the right
of the Chief Justice to remove a judge
from a court which be himself had
selected to hear an appeal from himself,
I remained in Victoria in attendance
upon the Full Court."
His Lordship then detailed the objection entered to his sitting ln the Full
Court, by the Chief Justice, the ruling of
Mr. Jusitlce Irving, senior puisne Judge,
who "undertook to declare without any
discussion or argument of the matter
that I was not a member of the court."
He also referred to tbe formal ruling
of the court, which, he submitted, "cannot be considered as conclusive or
binding because one member of the
court gave the casting judgment as a
'matter of form,' and I regret to say that
each and all of my learned brothers refused to give me an opportunity, ln
spite of my repeated urgent requests
to present reasons and arguments
or to cite authorities in support of my
right." This, His Lordship, contended,
was contrary to natural justice and cannot stand.
His Lordship regretted the necessity
for such an explanation which, he said,
was another "unhappy consequence of
Rule 1043 which has created and will
continue to create so much trouble."
a rule which he describes as " unprecedented," and producing a condition
"unparalleled."    He concluded:
"I have only to repeat my deep regret
at being unavoidably compelled to allude
to a matter which has been so painful
to me."

Tuesday,  February 25, 1908.
The most portentus political development of the year has been the at-
tempt by the majority at Ottawa to prevent inquiry into details of administration.
On this subject the Mail and -Umpire
voices the general protest iu the follow-
"Significant In the extreme is the suggestion which comes simultaneously
from ull the organs of the Ottuwa administration that artificial means be
udaapted to prevent tlie continuance by
the Opposition of the policy of investigation and exposure. This proposal
would not challenge attention were it
advanced by one paper. Under such
circumstances it might be regarded as
the product of a tii',ugiitiess moment.
Hut as it comes from a multiplicity of
journals, all under the influence of the
Ottawa politicians, and all receiving
public subsidies, it doe:, cull for serious
consideration. As a matter of fact,'it ls
the voice of the cabinet uttered througii
the columns which the government has
bought with the money ot the taxpayers.
What the ministers mean by the
proposition that the right of the representatives of the people he limited no
one need be at a loss to understand.
Last sa-ssion was a session of extraordinary disclosures, It waB learned
through tlie investigations made In the
puhSic accounts committee that a system of theft unheard of before in any
public service had been Instituted. It
came out that when articles are required for the use of the country lhe
price charged is from DO to 100 percent,
more than the uctual cost. Tbe articles,
inBtead of being purchased from the
maker or the regular vendor, are ordered through a middleman, who pays tbe
trade price, and charges the country
that figure, plus the "rake-off," which
goes no one knows where. This system
of roguery has been accompanied by
another operation equally dishonest.
where the purchase of land is affected.
In this case, the middleman learns by
some secret process the exuet piece of
property the government desires to acquire. He at once buys, and the government scttla-s with him at twice the
iigure he has paid to the original owner.
"Could there be anything more insolent than the suggestion thut the right
ol the people to superviso the transactions of their trustees in the government
be denied? Could there be anything
more calculated to awaken suspicion
that the proposal thut the guilty men,
the men who arc answerable for nil tha*
thievery, shall combine to close the
door against public enquiry, anal thus to
save themselves and their confederates?
Could there be anything more to be condemned than this scheme to protect tbe
grafters by sacrificing public liberty and
free speech? Canadians huve tolerated
much already. They have experienced
the "thin red line," aud the trick ballot-
box. They huve suffered from the corruption of Fielding and Hyman, and
from the crookedness of the "ralto-off,"
and the commission. While they have
yielded In these matters, they ure not
prepared to surrender the liberties they
exercise through their representatives
in parliament. Any attempt, therefore,
to restrict the powers of the assembly
which voices their views uud guarantees their freedom will be followed by
an agitation which will not end until
every man guilty of the attempt to
override the constitution is out of public
life forever."
By unanimous vote last night the city
council directed thut hereafter its proceedings when ln committee of the
whole should not be reported. Until
quite recently that has been the Invariable practice of the council. There
is no other object in going Into committee of the whole, except for consideration of bylaws. As a general rule
the lesH that a council has to keep from
the public the better, and the present
council would thoroughly endorse that
oponlon. Hut the council has occasionally to deal with corporations which
huve every facility for keeping their
moves  secret and  are  delighted  when
the council's plans are all revealed by
the press. No member of the council,
we are sure, has any desire to shirk
responsibility for his acts or to keep
tha*m from public knowledge, but the
desire that the whole process of inveB-
tiguting each question, and the means
proposed for different ends, should not
be detailed, especially when they cannot be given in full, and efforts at con-
densatlon so often result in ridiculous

Census   Shows   Only   Half   of   Increase
Paid for by Dominion Department of Immigration.
Ottawa, Feb. 25.���The Interior department gives out glowing reports of increased immigration. Thene statements
ure clearly raise. About hall the settlers reported can never be found afterward. This is proved by the Northwest
onsus of l'JOC, which shows the population of Mantoba, Saskatchewan and
Alburta to be as follows:
1906 808,863
1901 419,512
Increase 389,351
Returns of births and deaths make
the natural increase of the population
of 1901, 41,951, leaving 347,400 to be
supplied from the outside, and by the
natural increase of these immigrants.
Tne number of homestead settlers in
the Northweat from other provinces in
the five years is represented by the department to be 27,725. The department
counts two and a half persons for each
homesteader, making 69,312 inhabitants
from this source. A much larger number from the older provinces settled on
lands which they purchased, or in
towns and villages, or were employed
in the various works and Industries of
the country. This would leave less
than 200,000 to be supplied by immigrants and their children.
The number of immigrant settlers reported by the department as having located In Manitoba, Alberta and Saskatchewan in the five years preceding June
1901-2 61,129
1902-3 109,986
1903-4 75,308
1904-5 74,676
1905-6 90,652
Total 411,652
Here are more than twice as many
immigrants reported to have settled in
tlie West as could be found there by
the census enumerators. The number
of immigrant Bettlers reported from
1901 to 1906 Is 22,301 more than the total Increase of population from all
What has become of tlie 200,000 or
250,000 lost people? This includes the
22,301 mentoned above, also the total
natural Increase of older settlers, and
of immigrants, themselves, together
with all that, arrived from the older
provinces and their descendants. Either these 200,000 never came or they
came and went away. On how many
of these imaginary immigrants did the
country pay a bonus of $4 or $5 per
head? On how many did tbe mysterious
North Atlantic Trading Co. draw $5
for each Imaginary head? How many
of them were travellers going into the
country or going out by another or the
same gate? How many were Canadian
travellers coming home? How many
were picknickers from across the borders? How many were mere dead figures stuffed in the books to make glory
for the immigration department, gain
for the immigration contractors, and
excuse for an annual immigration expenditure which has jumped from $120,-
000 to $950,000 since the change of

say that all signs point to a very early
spring. The first robin was seen on
Sunday by G. A. Hunter. Several were

The  Theatre.
A number of people called at The
Canadian offlce today protesting against
the performance at the opera house

anything in favor of the company, consequently it has nothing to apologize

Thursday, Feb. 27th, Is the day fixed
for voting on the bylaw to authorize

nothing and will make possible the
prosecution of an industry which ls certain to be of great importance to Nelson
anal KOotonay, There are no conceivable grounds for opposition to the bylaw. The only danger lt has to fear
is apathy. If its Importance were realized by the citizens generally there
would be no apathy.
