London. Aug. 27.���In the House of
Lords today Lord Elgin announced that
it is proposed to divide the colonial
office into three departments instead of
four, aa now: one to be the Dominion
department, exclusively for business of
self-governing colonies; tbe second for
crown colonies; the third for legal, financial and general business, the last
to have seven assistant under-secre-
tarles of state. Lucas is bead. For
duties ariBlng out of the work of the
Imperial conference. Mr. Just, Joint
secretary of the late conference will be
appointed.
In connection with the colonial office
reorganization. Lord Elgin pointed out
that Mr. Lucas has written works of
merit on colonial, especially Canadian,
history. It Ib certain the task of recommending the new department to brethren beyond the Beas. could safely be
trusted to blm. Lord Elgin emphasized
the fact that the civil service was open
to all fellow-subjects who chose to qualify themselves. The colonial offlce is
only too happy to give these a glad welcome, and added that the conference
limited him deflnltely. The line of advance to be pursued carried out the
mandate folly, without reset-re. though
not without sympathy for those who
thought there were more advanced
iHists. which might be occupied at sunn
future time. He thought they had taken possession of the most advanced
postB they could safely occupy now.

GOT QUARTER MILLION
Thieve. Abstracted Three Money Bags
From  United  States Mails
Near Omaha-
Omaha. Neb.,  Aug.  27.���The  biggest
robbery of tbe United States malls ever
pulled off occurred between Denver and
Omaha   last     Thursday     night,   when
three  through   registered  pouches, two
of   which    contained     $250,000,     were
stolen   from   tbe    liuiiington    Railroad
fast mall train between Denver and Chicago.     Although the   robbery   occurred
on Thursday nigbt, the news only leaked t ut today.
Today every postal inspector��sd secret service man in the entire -vest Is
working on the case.
Thursday night seven through registered pouches were sent from the Denver poBt-offlce to the depot for the Burlington fast mail train. These were
receipted for by the mall clerk. When
the train reached M'Cook, Neb., lt was
found tbat three of the pouches were
missing. One of the missing pouches
was destined to Omaha, another to Chicago, and the third was empty for Lincoln. Tbe shipment Is said to aggregate more than $260,000.
As soon as the loss was discovered
the inspectors were notified and a
search begun. Yesterday a dozen se
cret service men, who were ln Omaha,
were working on the case. The mall
crew handling tbe missing pouches
were examined but exonerated themselves.
lt Ib the opinion of the Inspectors
that the mall employee ln collusion
with the thieves simply dropped the
mlBBlng sacks when they were being
transferred from the wagons to the
train, got on the opposite side and
sneak.-d away with the mall sacks. The
last trains leave Denver at night aud ln
the darknesB they could easily escape
with their booty. It ls the biggest robbery the United Slates mall has ever
sustained.

West Indies. It ls very expensive to
haul timber from the forests to the
coasts, and it ls not possible to use
river transport , because many of the
timbers are too heavy to float. Another
obstacle Is to be found In the fact that
the forests ln the West Indies do not
have one or two useful species, such as
ls tbe case with tbe forests of the northwestern States. As a rule the Individuals of any one useful species generally
exist ln an isolated state, closely surrounded by single trees of many other
species, perhaps moro or less useless.
Such conditions stand ln the way ot
steady supply of any particular timber,
without which lt Is almost Impossible to
establish a market. The difficulty In
finding a good market for a new kind
of wood ls that, the bulk of the timber trade is limited to a few kinds of
wood which he can stock largely, and
thus buy to a. better advantage, than to
use a large number of woods which
must be purchased ln small lota. Hence,
fresh arrivals stand little chance' of obtaining b footing unless they show peculiar merits. Any wood which resembles ln some way the staple timber and
will pass under the same name, will be
bought readily on trial and If useful
probably adopted. Thus various similar -looking woods are sold as cedars,
mahoganies, or ebonies and their sole
claim on Ihelr trade names ls often
their resemblance ln color and grain tu
better-known woods.

APPEAL  FOR   PURE   ELECTIONS.
No part of Mr. llordeu's remarkable
campaign will 'l'>*l " more general and
hearty response throughout tbe Dominion than his unmistakably sincere and
earnest j.leu for the cleansing of the
politics of the country from the bldeoui
corruption lhat haa delated lt, ami
whieh, it cannot be denied, has Brown
worse in the last ten years.
Debauching     the     eleioratc   by   bribery of individuals and of constttnendes,
chiming  of  the  electors,  b]   persona
tlon, by ballot-box smiting, ballot-switching   and   other   means   tliat   have   been
exposed, are crimes that cannot be palliated  by  any  degree of national prosperity, even if it could be proved that
ull  the  prosperity  is  solely   due  to the
action of  tin.*  government  of the  day.
They constitute not only a crime against
the   electors   whose Intentions   are   defeated,   but   also  a   sin   against   dsmoo-
racy. Unless the rulers and their policy
are endorsed  by  the houesl, unhouglit,
unthreatened,    uninfluenced expression
of the popular will, representative government becomes a mockery and a lie.
It  Is  easy   to   retort  thut   the   other
party has  been  guilty,  "that  the devil
must be fought with Are," that "politics
are not made with  prayer,"  that there
niiiBt always   be  a  little  corruption  in
democratic   elections.        Sucli   answers
may  satisfy  the   degraded   professional
corruptioiiiBts   who   stole   the   seats  In
London,   Prince   Albert,   Blgln,   Huron,
llrockvllle  and   many other  constituencies  in   1904.    Hut   they have been  Indignantly condemned by every religious
organization ln Canada, by every Inde
pendent public man, nnd by every head
of  a   university   whose   position   makes
his opinion respected.   Neither will ihi-y
be accepted  by tlie* great body of elec
tors     whose     consciences  are   not   the
slaves of party prejudice.
The Toronto Globe has lately made a
comparison of the careers of Sir John
Thompson and Mr. Aylesworth and contrasted the treatment of the two by
political opponents, of course to the disadvantage of the Tories. It describes
both as eminent lawyers and both entering Dominion politics comparatively
lute iu life and at great peraonal sacrifice. There, however, the comparison
ends. Mr. Aylesworth's ubility ls not
denied, nor is his personal disinterestedness. On his entry into political life
he was treated with every respect. But
he has not followed in the footsteps of
the great statesman with whom the
Globe compares him. Sir John Thompson did not become a violent aud abusive partizan, he was never the apolo
gist of "graft" and corruption, nor did
he ever procure the manufacture of
material to defame a political opponent
under the pretence of investigating a
public institution.
It must be evident now to everyone ln
British Columbia lhat the Japanese Im-
niiaraiion -question has been played
with for political purposes by the province's representatives at Ottawa. The
belligerent Mr. MePherson can indulge
In melodramatic imbecility on the
wharf at Vancouver, but he could not
utter one word of protest while the act
which permits the Immigration was
passed through the House of CommonB.
lion .Frank Oliver, minister of the Interior, may in the course of a year or
two develop some clear ideas ou the
subject, but hla utterances to date are
decidedly confused.

It will be a relief tu tbe citizens of
Nelson to learu, from the report of last
night's council meeting tbat the delay
in selling tbe school debentures is not
due to a quarrel between tbe council
and the school trustees, but to a circumstance over which no one in Nelson has
uny control, namely tbe stringency of
the Canadian money market. The result however, in none the less regrettable. Tbe children of Nelson must be
kept for at least another winter in
school quarters of which no one can
think with any degree of complacency.
SHORT  STORIES.
If any claim to fame can be pleaded
ar the bar of history on behalf of Sir
Wilfrid Laurier his advocates will have
a heavy task in answering for the awful
series ol political crimes thut he permitted und deliberately left unpunished.
Not only are the criminals unpunished,
the very worst of them have* been appointed to the public service. Their
deeds���foul as every right thinking man
must Judge them to be���have been ac-
ct.pi.ed as services lo the Liberal party
aud valid claims to such rewards as
the government has i'i ita gift. It is a
shameless acknowledgement lhal the
administration owes its lite to the acts
of a band of criminals.
There Is no way now in which Sir
Wilfrid Laurier can clear his uame. He
knew the record of W. T. It. l'reslon
before he employed him. lie knew all
the crimes lhat have been Committed
lor his benefit of the vulgur agents ol
the machine. He knew the corrupt appeals by whieh Mr. I-ielding swept
Nova Scotia in 1904, He has given
.solemn promises of punishment and
Luture prevention, und bus broken them
with a cynic deliberation thai has surprised even those who knew tiie shameless hypocrisy of his campaign of 1 bi*0,
when he appealed ior tolerance iu Ontario while he inflamed the race pre
Judlce of Quebec.
Sir Juhn Macdonald never potsd as a
saint. He Stooped frequently to devices that he loathed. Hut Sir Wilfrid
Lanrlec, the "stainless knight," has
been an accomplice before the fact in
��� ilines thai Macdonald would never
have forgiven in the meanest campfol-
lower of his host.
How deeply the cancer of corruption
bas eaten into tho Canadian body
politic may be appreciated from the
general expression of doubt as to the
possibility of Mr. liorden s noble appeal being heard with favor. It seems
to be Cedred that the call, which after
all Is onljr for common honesty, Is too
hlKh to win any response from this
generation.
M may be bo. The electors today may
turn with a sigh from the Invitation to
be Clean and wallow again in the
trough of Grit corruption. If Mr. Hor-
iI'h'h political) career should end within the year, he will be forever remembered with gratitude g| the man who revived in Canada at the hour of hor deepest degradation the conceptions of civic
duty and national honor.
James Hauny, once a member of the
stuff of the Pall Mall Gazette, was a
typical man of letters. And Huxley, as
everybody knows, was a typical scientific man.
Hanuy had been a midshipman when
Huxley was a naval surgeon. Y'eurs
after the two met each other on the
steps of the HritiBh Museum. "Huxley,"
said Hanny, "I care nothing for man except as a creature of historical tradition."
"Nor I," answered Huxley, "for him
except as a compound of gas and water.
"But,' he added, "if we were each of
us better educated men than we are,
we should know how to reBpect each
other's studies more."

CONSERVATIVE REFORM
R.  L.  Borden's  Appeal  for   Honesty  in
Elections and Appointments to the
Civil    Service.
Tho part of Mr. Borden's Halifax ad-
flrcHH which deala wllh electoral and
civil service reform is as follows:
"If I am rltfht In asserting that un-
tainted elections are essential to the
moQen of democracy, am 1 not rinht
in Li'lieviriK that the Conservative party has today an opportunity of performing a service to the country greater
than any which It has rendered in the
past ? That service will Include a determined and vigorous effort to reform
und enforce our electoral laws, but it
will chiefly consist in the future conduct and management or electoral campaigns. Fight the ballot thief and the
briber of the Liberal machine. Strike
not only at them but expose and send
to the penitentiary if possible the respectable men who supply the funds and
superintend the work from a safe distance. Fight also any influences within your own party which favor corrupt
methods. T^et there be no party fund
the details of which may not be known
and the expenditure ol which cannot be
made public. Let your elections be conducted according to honorable, decent
and   clean  methods.
"A campaign of education to this end
should be begun and persisted ln. But
above alt thsse there should be an unflinching determination to pursue by
every punishment known to the law the
respectable conspirators, and not alone
their infamous instruments employed
and paid to subvert the will of the people by bribery and ballot switching and
every other fraudulent and corrupt
practice. At tbe opening of the last
session the Government pledged themselves In the speech from the throne to
Introduce a  bill  amending the electoral

laws. No such bill wlfcs Introduced. I
criticized their Inaction and moved a
resolution which was voted down by the
usual Government majority. The substance of that motion which I submit to
you as an essential article of Conservative policy ls as follcwH:
"More effective provision to punish
hribery and fraud at elections, toAo-
aure thorough publicity as to expffdi-
tureH by -political organizations, to prevent the accumulation of campaign
fundi^for corrupt purposes, and to prohibit contributions thereto by corporations, contractors and promoters, to expedite the hearing of election petitions
and to prevent collusive arrangements
lor the withdrawal or compromise thereof, to provide for a thorough Investigation of corrupt practices, and if necessary to appoint an independent prosecuting officer charged with that duty, to
simplify the procedure therfor, and to
enforce the laws so amended.
"What I have said concernig appointments to public office leads me to submit to you another article which should
find a place in the Conservative policy,
and It is this:
"A thorough and complete reformation of the laws relating to the civil
service so that future appointments
shall be made by an independent commission acting upon the report of examiners after competitive examination.
Of this feature of Mr. Uorden's policy
and the difficulty of carrying it out, the
Toronto News says:
"Civil service reform is advocated by
Mr. Borden. He suggests that appointments should be made by an independent commission, acting upon the report
of examiners, after competitive examination. That is a wise and sane policy.
It recognizes the evil influence of the
spoils system. It admits that men
are appointed to offlce for no reason
but the flimsy one of political service.
The policy ls wholly admirable. But
the practical politician is not likely to
become enthusiastic over it. How many
members of the Opposition in the
House of Commons would be willing to
sit ou the Treasury Benches without
dabbling In patronag eand other petty
methods of vote catching ? Is there
oue of them who has not, in his constituency, a little hand of committee
men who, since 1896, have labored and
and have not fainted in tbe hope that
a time will come ? ls there one of
these committeemen who would not expect, if the Conservatives came into
power, a public offlce for which he
might be unqualified. The way to secure civil reform Ib not alone hy the
academic utterance of a party leader.
That is valuable as far as lt goes. But
it should be backed by the enthusiastic
support of the leader's followers in Parliament. When Col. Sam Hughes and
Mr. Bergeiou are ao convinced of the
vote-getting capabilities of the Civil
Service Reform policy, that they can
gaily dash to earth the cherished hopes
of some of their most ardent workers,
then reform will be within measurable
distance. But Mr. Borden's declaration
may aid in the good work of stirring
public opinion. It is only by causing
a popular demand for an Independent
public service that Civil Service Reform can become a definite political Issue. Unfortunately, patronage has been
the handmaid of power In Canada for so
long that the public Is habituated to Its
shortcomings. Still lt Is encouraging
when the leader of one of the great parties takes so definite a position on so
important a question."

An Indian maiden, twelve years of
age, had been abducted from the flsh
ing camp at the St. Mungo, cannery,
and Hurla Singh, a Hindu, is charged
with the crime. The Hindu was seen
by a white man carrying off the girl,
but hor people have been unable to find
any trace of her and have nearly all
ceased fishing and gone on a hunt for
the girl and her captor, and are threatening body harm on the big Kast Indian
if he is caught. The police have been
notified and are endeavoring tG locate
the pair, but so far have met with no
success. The Indians have been unable
to give any clue aa to which way they
went, but it Is supposed that the Hindu
took his prisoner ofT in a boat.
Fruit Land Transfer*.
D. D. Fraser and A. M. Fraser, who
have been in the city for several days,
have acquired two valuable properties,
those of George Alexander, at Kaslo,
and of Zr Lang Stocks on the north
shore of the Arm, oppOFlte the city.
.Messrs. Fraser left for England this
morning, and will not return until next
spring. The properties will be managed
for them by James Johnstone, who wilt
be represented at Kaslo by J. G. Palmer.
Mr. Alexander's disposal of his residence will not, he says, be followed by
the disposal of his mining Interests In
Kootenay. D. D. Fraser has spent many
years in Java, and he thinks many other
owners of East Indian plantations will
follow him to Kootenay to engage in
fruit growing.

prominent citizens devoted several

number of diminutive toads which are
now travelling in myriads up the hill,
they Improvised   a   race  course  on the
