quite satisfactory settlement cannot but
be welcomed  by the whole empire.'
"There Is, however, some uneasiimss

from Victoria that tin- first act of the

measure restricting Asiatic Immigration
under drastic provisions similar to those
nf the Natal Act. The last thing Canada's friends ami British statesmen
here wish to see is a const itutiomi'
deadlock In Canada on so inllammabli
a question as the racial problem. Compulsory registration nnd thumb marking
of Orientals is creating trouble enough

Interstate   Commerce   Commission Can't
Control Canadian Lines.
Washington, Jan.', is.���An informal
ruling issued l.y the Interstate commerce commission, says:
"A Canadian carrier having joint
through rates trom a point in, the
United States tn polnls on its line, may
not depart from these rates by tin. de
vice of placing an agent al such poilil
in Ilia* United Slates with authority to
select from the first station on its line
north of the Canadian line to a tin',,
points on Its line In Canadian territory
at the rate of one cent a mile to lie sold
only to such persons as produce, a cer-
filicatc of the Immigration agent of the
Canadian government. Besides being a
device tickets so limited to particular
persona operate as a discrimination.
Hut in the absence of such joinl through
rates from a point in Ihe I'nlted Stales
to points on its own lines this commis
siiin has no jurisdiction over the fares
actually charged and collected by tlu
separate transportation lines between
points in Canada."

iormal su there need be no reading oi
minutes or  recording of minutes.
He then asked the city clerk to pn>
duce all tht: documents necessary for a
full muierstanding of the present statu :
of tbe  puwer  plant question.
C.ty IClectrieian II. A. Hrown prod ured tlie plans followed in the installation
of machinery. They ar** signed not by
Clemens Herschel but by tlie Uullock
Eieciric company.
The clerk explained that he understood that the original plums were ai
the plant in the custody ot ihe AUis-
Channers lluilock company, to be turned over to the city on the accep'-an<
of the plant and machinery complete.
The clearest information was Obtained from th.* report submitted by W. P
Dickson on his retirement.
In reply to Lhe mayor, R. A. Hrown
stated lhat much of the work of equalizing the voltage throughout the city,
referred to in Mr. Dickson's report, was
...ill to be done.
The mayor emphazled the fact of the
agreement of the city to pay $400 per
month for operation untfi actieptanee.
Ths was fully stated antl explained in
a letter of the city solicitor written on
Feb. _;J, l'J07, in which he stated hi.,
opinion that none of the subsidiai>
agreements affected the rights of cube
of the paities under tht1 original con
The Mayor���That gives us everything

The original contracts were then read
by the clerk, covering the agreements*
tor the hydraulic installation.
The clerk stated that there is nov.
over $20,000 tabout $20,195) in the Dank
of Montreal ready nny time to make tin
iinal payment when the machinery is

was corroborated hy the city clerk. He
was of opinion that they should bave
heen in. Originally they would haw
rust about $400: now $4,000 would hard
ly cover the cost, and it would involvt
a shut down of at least three months
He suggested that the members of tin*
council would understand bettor afler
inspect ion.
The Mayor���Yes, tonight we only
want to decide on what we are to oli
. erve tomorrow.
Aid. Procter remarked that without
inspection the terms used by Mr. Drown
were train elllgible. At his request tlu*
function of the draught tube and the
consequences of its loss were explained
by Mr. Hrown, who said that it-s restor
ntion would would cost from $800 to
$1,000 and involve closing down for at
leasL a week.
Aid. Procter remarked again tha:
while he was deeply interested iu the
explanations he felt that they were comparatively unprofitable until they had
seen the plant.
The mayor stated that Mr. Zavitz had
;*sked for a shut down on Sunday and
that Mr. Hrown should remain on Sunday.     He   wished   that   all   should   go
down, and alter inspection visit the new
Honuiuglon   plant.
lt was agreed that the party should
tnke the it o'clock train. Mr. Hrown had
marh* the necessary preparations.
All the aldermen declared their readiness to go and remain, as arranged, un
til the 5.30 p. m. train.
A tetMr from tlie Allis-ChulmerH-Hul-
lock company was then read, being the
���report of K. H. Zavitz ou his last inspection, renewing the contention tbat

guide vanes and shifting rings, not fronr

Only Partly Successful.
Auckland, N. Z., .Ian. 18.���The nbsar
all'ins at Flint Islanal on December 3rd
of the eclipse of the sun, by a number
of American scientists, beaded by S. W.
(Sumpbell, director of the Lick observatory,-was only partly successful owing
to rain. Most of the Instrument were
wet but they worked perfectly and the
results then obtained were a success.
The Samoan observers measured the
heat of the corona with gratifying success. The form of the corona was
about the same as that observed In India
in 1S9S.

Miraculous Escape of 40 Miners fn Tun*
nets  of   Monongahela.
Monongahela, Pa., Jan. IS.���-Miraculously escaping death by cremation or
suffocation or being blown to pieces by
an expbjsion, 40 miners employed in the
( ab mrg mine of the Monnngaiela River
Consul.dated Coal and Coke company,
made their way through the dark headings for a distance ol seven miles and
finally reached tlie open air. Without
lghts to guide them, and given up aa
dead, the men fought for five hours
with lire. ' When they reached the surra-e their laces were blackened, clotues
t.irn and all were severely bruised from
stumbling in their tight for safety. Fortunately the mine contained' very little
gas or another mine disaster woul huve
been recorded in Western Pennsylvania.
The mine was fired some time during
the day by a "blow out" shot and when
fire was discovered at S o'clock last
night the forty men ull escaped to the
suiface thiough the monongahela entrance cut off. Momentarily expecting
an explosion with its horrible consequences the men started panic stricken
for the Charleroi, several miles away,
ln their frenzy they stumbled and fell
but only to jump up again and continue
their mad rush for safety: When tlie
men leached the suuace early today a
majority of tliem were sobbing like
children. A large force of men are today bratticlng the part of the mine
which ciiused tt. He and it is belloved
tbe damage will be finiall.

Mr. Mitchell in the presidency.
There are many Importanl questions
thai will confront the delegates to the
coming convention among the most important being mutters connected with
the wage scale. The wage agreements
between miners and operators in the
principal fields of the United stuns
and Canada will expire April I and the
question of renewal is to be broughl be-
fore the convention. Theli' has ail along
been talk that the miners would hold
oni for better terms and us the demands wane not likely to be granted
by the operators it seemed thai a general strike was among the probabilities.
Recently, however, the Industrial conditions bave brought about a change ol
mind among the miliers and the ohan
ces for a strike now appear to be re
mote. The millers will probably en-
d. iivor to secure some modllieutions or
the present agreement in their favor,
hut no radical demands are likely to be
made by either side, so that an amicable agreement will probably lac reach-
ad wlthoul much difficulty. The convention will frame ibe demands ut' tin- min
ers and tha'se will be presented to the
joint conference with the operators to
be  held  later.

Saturday  January   18,  1908.
J. H. Hawthotnthwaite- M. L. A., for
Nanaimo- Socialist leudor in the provincial legiB.ulur*', hay introduced UltO thnt
body a resolution praying the Governor*
General-m-Council to investigate the
conduct of Lleutanant.-Qovernor Maxnea
Dunamulr, and to dismiss him. if be be
found guilty of certain offences.
What the Investigation is wanted for
we cannot guess. We Know thai the
Bowse, bill was "reserved.'" We know
that this reservation would not have
been, could noi have been, und was not,
at the request of the provincial government. Wo have been told by Hon. Mr.
Templeman thai it was not ordered bj
the Dominion government, and Senator
Scott, the venerable secretary ot stab *
���while admitting thai be was making
anxious Inquiry on the subject, has stated definitely enough that the Uleni
Governor reserved Hn   bill without wai!
im,' for Instructions. And then Commissioner MacKenzie King discovered, and.
not knowing the relations between Mr,
Dunsmuir and tlu* Liberal party in tin
province, published the fact that in 11ji-
private capacity as an employer of labor Mr. Dunsmuir wan contracting ior
the importation of Japanese laborers
All this is mailer ol" record. Whal
more   can   be   learned   as   the   renull   ol
nu Investigation I1
Our eouleinporary's special despatch
from the legislative press nailery, which
is a Characteristic specimen of its "lair
news reports," contains the following:
"Hawthofath.waste's i caul nt Ion will
place the premier in a tight place and
while Ha wlhoruthwatie's support by
rote will include only a small following,   tlie   opposition   wltl   use   it   n.:   am
monition and a lively light is anticipated."
Bawthornthwatte's resolution will not
place Un.. premier In u tight place.,   it
is extremely unlikely that Premier McBride or his cabinet will make any representations to Ottawa or be party to
any such. Premier McBride has no
more Influence on the uppuiutinent, re
tontion or dismissal of the lieutenunt-
gOVemor than Mr. Hawthornthwaito.
He is the appointee of Sir Wilfrid Laurier and only Sir Wilfrid can remove
him. James Dunsmuir was appointed
to his position for "considerations well
known to every man in British Columbia. As our contemporary stated in an
&ma_ihg outburst of truthfulness, "he
had the money; hence the appointment."
And how will the Liberal members
use the Hawthornthwaito resolution as
ammunition? Our      contemporary's
"news" correspondent is evidently a
prophet as well as a political editor. If
Liberals vote for the resolution they are
condemning Sir Wilfrid Laurier, if they
vote against it they will seem to endorse the lieutenant-governor, The
premier's position is easy. He is in no
way responsible for the appointment or
retention of tlie Offending official. The
Liberals are.    It is their funeral.
Liberal members hotly resent the
charm, made by A. Claude Macdonnell.
M, P. for Toronto South, that the proposed free distribution of seed grain by
the government to the farmers of tiie
Q6W prairie provinces, was political rather than philanthropic, and his belief
that il would become a means of corruption. The speech from the throne,
in the Alberta legislature the other day
breathed only confident optimism and
satisfied prosperity. Despatches from
the two new provinces have all along
Indicated thai it was Alberta not Sas
katchewan thai was Injured by Frost,
Vet  it  is Saskatchewan    not    Alberta
Dial is lo receive the charitable dole.
Why? Weil, lion. F. Q. Haultaln so
completely overshadows the Li Ik-tal
ministers or Saskatchewan in ability
and in public regard that there is always a danger of Liberal collapse. How
great tbat danger Ih was shown by the
bye-election   in    i-rinee   Albert,  where
open, BhameleBS fraud had to be resorted to in order to save a seat for a provincial minister. The distribution of
seed grain or anything else may help
to r evive the "loyalty" of followers
whose consciences must be becoming

In- the festival in comintmifration of
the conversion of St. Paul. The Htnry
is familiar to all. of Haul oi Tarsus,
keen,  intellcci mil,  bill   a   bigot, fl   BealOUS
leader in tlie persecution of the Christ
ians, riding along the road to lianiascus,
suddenly arrested by u blinding light
and a voice reproving his cruelty. It
cun make no difference whether the
light und the voice were seen and heard
by ali or hy Saul alone. The miracle
Is the same. Saul of Tarsus the persecutor became the apostle, St. Paul, the
boldest Spirit, the Wisest head and the
clearest and most eloquent voice of ail
the missionaries and preachers of the
early church, and one of the greatest
personal forces of all time. Christianity
did uot need St. Paul, hut the illuminating stroke, whether it was a sudden
revulsion or the climax ot days of
douht und misgiving after his participation in the murder oi Bt, Btephe_, the
change gave to the church her greatest
son, who "labored more abundantly than
tiny   all."
The gospel for toni'irrow is the story
of the marriage feast in Cana, of tlie
water turned to wine, one of the earliest of the miracles of Christ, not like
the later miracles except as a manifestation of power. The story has, however, another significance in showing
that ut the beginning of His ministrv
L'h11st was no recluse hut was known
in the community iu which he had
passed his youth. The provision of
wine for the wedding feast was uu act
Of kindness evidently for friends and
a recognition of wine as one of God's

Disagreeable    Smoking    Car   Passenger
Secures   Important   Decision.
Toronto, Jan. 18.���When a man tem-
ponirlly leaves a seat in a railway
coach, lie dues not necessarily forfeit
his right to it even if Uo baggage or apparel Ib left to show his occupancy. This
was the decision uf Judge Riddell in a
law suit brought by Albert Hnuiau. a
prospector of Vunkleek Mill. ugaijiKt. tlie
C. P. K., arising out of a row in a smoker on December 8, 1906. He demanded
|1,000 damageii lor heing forced out of
a seat by Conductor Alexander Hanner-
mau, and a party of men traveling in
his company who occupied several
seats . He Left for a short time. Uraz-
lan entered the car at St. Eugene and
took the seat under protest from the
other geutlemen of the party. He refused to give it up even though there
were other vacant seals, and the con-
ducior by application of a little muscular energy, forced him to do so. Hraz-
lan sued the railway company fur dam
ages for the act of the conductor. He
says the company is not compelled to
furnish smoking accommodations any
more than accommodation lor curling
hair, playing bridge, or shaving. He
confessed, however, to a "secret admiration" for the men who by making
themselves disagreeable on such occasions, aid in bringing about great reforms.
"In Time of War."
Washington, Jun. 18.-��� Major -General
W. 1>. Huvall. assistant chief of the staff
of the United States army, in a specisJ
requ st to congress, asked for an appropriation of $10,000,000 for the purchase of arms and equipment for an
army of 2aO,OOH men. This request was
strongly endorsed by Majur-General
Franklin Rell, chief of the staff, and
Robert Shaw Oliver, assistant secretary
of war. The request provides tor an
expenditure of $2.5OO,O00 a year for four
years. The most remarkable thing
ahout the request is that it uses the
expression "such equipment to he used
in   time  of war."

Weather  permitting  th..-  annual  bonspiel of the Kootenay Curling Assoda
lion will open at the Nelson ourling
rink next 'Tuesday morning anil keep
the undivided Interest and attention ol
at least 200 men for the balance of the
week. Nelson's exponents of the gam<
have not had very much practice but
there are enough veterans to maintain
the city's prestige. It is considered
likely that there will be a very lar-Ke
attendance of visiting curlers as Nelson
is the favorite rallying point, and the
game was never more popular in Kootenay than now.
The tirst hockey match of the season,
between Nelson and Rossland. was played last night on the local rink and resulted in a victory for the home team
by 7 goals to '���>. In the opinion of many,
including the referee, it was the tastflSl
and best game ever played on NVlson
tee. Rossland     showed     unexpected
strength and gave the local stars a hard
tight. Tin* game promises many stubborn contests this winter, and may make
those pause and consider again, who
have been saying that the results of
the Hritish Columbia and Western Internationa; championship matches wore
a foregone conclusion. Some of tin-
spectators thought tbe game unnecessarily and unpardonably rough. It is
true that a strict judge of play might
have kept the ice practically bare ot
players Ior most of the time but Referee

at cover point is an unquestioned success, but there are not a few who think
that his weight, speed, staying power
and judgment are even more effective
on the forward line. The work of Patrick and Archie Hlshop was nearly
faultless but both are handicapped on a
small rink. The game was splendid
from the spectators" point of view and
a good season for hockey is now a-s*
