North Fork Property Held at High Fig
ure���General News of
(.rand Forks, May 15.���It is reported
today that a deal has juBt been closed
for tlte purchase of a bond of the famous Golden Eagle property on Volcanic Mountain, the vendor company being a strong Vancouver syndicate. While
(he exact flgureB have uot been ascertained the consideration prico is reported to In- $60,000. Tbe Golden Eagle
is ono of the high grusle properties of
the Nortii Fork district, the ore assaying as high as |100 per lon in gold
alone. It was originally owned by
Christopher Tobiason, un old time prospector who located the claim some
years ago. Some live years ago an
Knglish syndicate took a bond on the
properly for something like $75,000 but
owing to the 111 health of the manager,
Mr. Unrrett, of Greenwood, work on the
property was neglected and the bond
allowed to lapse.
Yesterday all tlie mechanics at the
(irunby smelter resumed work and arrangements are being made to start the
furnaces up within two weeks time. By
that time a lane Bupply of coke will
havo heen secured and as the entire
plant has undergone a complete system
of repairs during Its short period df Inactivity there Is no likelihood of any
more hitches In Its continuous running.
There Is a great feeling of satisfaction
here regarding the resumption of work.
Judging from the various enquiries
coming In from outside points for information regarding the prtcoB of suburban
real estate and farm lands, this summer
will unquestionably bo a lively year in
real estate. The enquiries aro coming
chiefly from Chicago, Winnipeg and
various Northwest polnta. ln addition
to these, already Eastern companies
have their representatives out here
looking over Ihe district, who are picking Up various tracts ot land with n
view of placing them on the Eastern

Interest In Murder Trial
Counsel Thinks Only Three of All So
Far Examined WUl Be Finally
Found Acceptable.
Boise, May 15.���With ten men ln the
box who have been passed for cause by
both the prosecution and defence, tbe
trial of William D. Haywood, secretary
and treasurer of the Western Federation of Miners, charged with the murder
of former Governor Frank Steunenberg,
of lduho, today enters upon its fourth
day. The morning session will be taken
up wltb the qualification of two men ne
cessary before the work of examination
preliminary to the peremptory chai
lenglng begins. It is thought probable'
that the box will lie filled during the
morning session, but it ls not likely that
more than two or three of the present
occupants will be retained. Counsel for
tho defence and prosecution admitted
lo tbe Associated Press that the chances
for retaining more than three or four
of the talesmen so far examined was
small, in fact one of the counsel said
he expects not more than three of the
present occupants of the box are to be
accepted. Under the rules of practice
in the Idaho courts ln the case of those
who have been challenged for cause, or
under iieremptory challenges the seat is
filled by a talesman who has not been
examined for cause who must fully qualify before the next Is reached. Under
the circumstances it ls remarkable that
Interest in the procedlngs, so far as
Boise is concerned, does not increase
The attendance ln the court room yesterday waB even smaller than that of
lho preceding day. There was no
cruwd outside to see jurors or prison-
era as lhe> passed from or to the court
house. On no nay hai? there been seen
in the court room any -eally prominent
merchant or citizen other than jurymen or witnesses. This condition Is explained only by the strong desire to
avoid anything that would tend to
nrouse the public to a discussion ot the
case before the Jury has been selected.
Haywood takes interest in the work of
selecting a jury; he Bits within six feet
of tho chair occupied by Juror No. 6 and
immediately behind Mr. Richnrdson, his
leading counsel. His youngest daughter
sits in the chair to the right and between him and his wife, who, every
morning nnd afternoon, is wheeled Into
the court room In nn invalid choir. The
girl ls constant ln her attention to ber

nttorneys she pinches his big fingers or
lays her hand on his shoulders. Mrs.

William. Hunter's   Views   of   Reduced
Steamer  Service.
William Hunter,, M. L. A. for Slocan,
returned from the Boundary last night,
and left this morning for bis home ln
The trip to Boundary was undertaken
to visit his store In Phoenix. Of tbe
general outlook ln that district Hr.
Hunter said; "I don't think the smelters will be shut down for long. Once
they bave good supplies of coal and
coke on hand, a way out of the difficulty
will be found. With copper at the preaent price no trifling subject of disagreement will matter much. Tbe worst
feature of the situation la tbe presence
among the men of agitators who don't
wnnt to work."
Mr. Hunter thinks 1907 will be a good
year for the Slocan. He greatly regretted the C. P. it. company's decision
to reduce Its passenger service from
six to three times a week, especially as
the dally service has been enjoyed for
so many years. The handling of freight,
he says, wilt necessitate a dally run of
the steamer, and there seems no good
reason why calls cannot be made at tbe
few ports on the lake. He considers
the reduction a very bad advertisement
for the district

Mexico City, May 16���United States
Ambassador Thompson last nlgbt said
in regard to a recent Interview accredited to President Diaz:
"At thla Interview between President
Diaz and a representative of a New
York paper, President Diaz did not say
that he favored a federation of Central
American states, with the United States
and Mexico as joint guardians, and no
such thing was translated from the president by the official Interpreter, the ambassador, who acted as Interpreter on
the occasion."

Situation Growing Graver
East Bengal a Well as Punjab Scene
of Disorders���Ascribed to Effort
to Raise Natives.
London, May 15.���The news from
India, which dominates this morning's
newspapers, Increases the anxiety
which the present happenings in the
Indian Empire awaken here. That Sir
Denztl Ibbetson, lieutenant-governor of
the Punjab, whom Chief Secretary Morley the other day described ln the house
of commons as one ot the ablest and
most experienced administrators in
India, Bhould have summoned big military reinforcements to Lahore and postponed his own departure frnm that city,
Is regarded aa adding to tbe gravity of
the Bltuation. Tbe India Offlce has
issued nothing on the situation, although It la understood tt ie ln constant
communication with the Viceroy. Pending some official declaration the newspapers comment sparingly, but print
their own and the news agencies' news
conspicuously. Such comments as
printed call for firm action by the government.
Some recent statements in the bouse
of commons by Mr. Morley and bis approval of the deportation ot Lala Lajpat
Ral betray no sign that he Is disposed
to underestimate the possibilities of the

Increasing unrest among the natives
ln Eastern Bengal. This teems to centre in the Mymen Singh district of the
latter province, which is a thousand
miles distant from Lahore. Here, according to a newspaper despatch, tbe
local government realizes fully the extreme peril of the situation, and Is prepared for military operations on a large
scale. Nevertheless, lta failure to check
tbe seditious movement promptly has,
it le added, resulted In a state of revolt.
Thousands ot Dacoits, consisting ot
both Hindus and Mohammedans, are
roaming In the Mymen Singh district,
plundering and burning villages, and Ill-
treating loyal natives, may of whom
have been murdered.
Thirty-seven agitators have been a.*
rested by the military police, who are
trying to stamp out the movement. The
despatch further says that seditious literature has been spread broadcast
through Eastern Bengal, and that the
rioting at Rawal Plndi has been distorted into a triumph ot the natives against
the British.
Loyal natives of the better class are
writing to the newspapers and authorities, urging the necessity for prompt
repressive measures. They declare
that the anti-European movement has
gained Immense strength ln Bengal
since the resignation of the late lieutenants-governor, Sir Pnmpfylde Fuller,
who waa forced to relinquish his post
because he tried to suppress the present
agitation in the native schools.
The participation of Mohammedans
In the Mymen Singh outrages shows
clearly that the movement Is directed
agalnBt British rule instead ot being a
fight between Hindus and Moslems, as
was at flrst supposed.
Revivalist   Nearly  Kills   His Son  for
Playing orr Sunday.
Chicago, May 15.���A despatch from
Athens, Oa., says: "Because he whipped
hla 12-year-old son for playing baseball
on Sunday, J. B. Harboll, a travelling revivalist, was yesterday sontenced to six
months on the rock pile by Mayor Dorsey. Physicians stated the boy was
lashed until his flesh was cut so badly
that he may not recover. Harboll said
tt was a deadly sin to play ball on Sunday, and he had ordered his son not to
play the game but the latter disregard'
ed him and was then caught playing on
one ot the teams.

London, May 15.���At the bye-election

of the local government board, whose
candidacy was opposed by the Woman
Suffragists, was elected by the great
majority qf 6,964 out of a total vote of
16,662. Mr. Chaplin was Joseph Chamberlain's first lieutenant throughout the
latter's protectionist campaign nnd It
was largely on that issue that he was
elected. Baron Russell, the candidate
of the Woman Suffragists, was heavily
handicapped by the fact that Liberals
declined officially to nominate a candidate for the vacancy. '

The Imperial Conference of 1807, the
llrst called i>y that name, is over, the
net result achieved being praotloally
nothing, at least as far as lln- published
records show.
The only ray of hope cumo fpoin London yesterday in lln* announcement
lhat on Sir Wilfrid Laurler's motion a
committee wns appointed to consider
thc feasibility of subsidizing un all-Brit
Ish route to Australia liy way ol
On all olher points nothing has bison
done whleb the membera of tbe conference are willing should be known to the
people of tbo Umpire.
We have been lold thai proposals lm
preferential trade were opposed by rep
resentatiTes of tbe iiom,^ govrnmeni and
by Sir Wilfrid Laurier. tin tin- other
Questions of first-class Importance, co
operation for defence, uniformity of na:
unitization laws. Immigration, especial!)
of olher than while race's, nol u worst
hns come from ihe meeting chamber ol
the conference.
Difficulties tisj not grow less hy boinfl
concealed or Ignored. Solution ssf th
problems of Kiiiplre ls most likely to
be found by placing the questions full*-
ly before the whole constituency, ihnt
Ib the Empire, with all Iheir difficulties
Instead of that, to thc disgust of alt
tbc colonial representatives except sir
Wilfrid Laurler, Ihe home ministers re
solved on a policy of secret sessions and
censored reports.
No wonder, Ihen, that tbe majority of
British Imperialists wbo hoped for some
achievement from this conference, sums'
definite forward step on the path of Imperial unity, have nlready written
It Is true thnt none but the most
sanguine and optimistic had expected
an.i thing else. Thc Liberal pany in Britain since the deuth of Palmerston bas
had as motto for lis foreign policy
"Peace al any Price," and of Its colonial
policy, Tennyson's ironical
���Friends, so loyal Is too costly,
Loose yourselves, we pray, and go."
The doctrine of Free Trade was associated, almost Identified, with the belief
thut wars were over forever, and that
tbe people of lho Hritish Islands were
going to lead tho world along the pleasant paths of peace. Preeminence In
trade and industry were to compensate
Britons for the loss of their primacy In
war, diplomacy und government. Fssr
Its new role Hritain, it was held, could
get no help from tiio Dominions over
sea, but only burdens and hindrances,
lt was the frankly expressed wish of
Bright and Gladstone lhat Canada, Australia und the Cape would suon demand
Independence. Colonies and all possessions were regarded only as sources of
danger. A brief period of Ave years, Mr.
(Hailstone's second premiership, saw
British flags carried hack on the Indian
fronfidr, on (lie Nile and at the Cape.
The    Iwo    last sins havo since  been
 ued   for   wllh   hlood  and   treasure.
There are signs In the Nortii West of
India that the first error must be
atoned for now.
Obviously the llrltlsh Liberals, inheri-
ioi-8 of th.' Oladstonlan tradition, can
never be an Imperial iiarty. It was
os|ually obvious to all students of recent
history thut the majority of the present
Hritish cabinet ilreudcd ihe conference
and were resolved to make it us nearly
Innocuous us possible.
Hut whai touches Canadians most
nearly is the attitude of Canada's representative, Sir Wilfrid Laurier.
lt Is true thai tne one forward step,
referred to nt the beginning, was taken
on his Initiative. No Conservative will
refuse him due credit for thnt.
Hut, unless he has been mosl unfairly
reported by the Hritish press, the Canadian Associated Press and the Amerlcnn Associated Press, IiIh stand
throughout the conference���with thai
single exception, like un eleventh hour
repentance��� has been one of hardly con-
cealod opposition to every suggestion
from the other younger nations. He objected to the creation of nn Imperial
Council, and he was unable to take part
In discussion of any scheme of co-operation for defence, novn! or milltnry.
The consequence Is that Imperialists
In the Hritish Islands and throughout
tho Empire regard Canada as a stumbling block. Her official representative
was opposed to all their hopes, and at
the close exulted tn the defeat of the
"too ardent Imperialists.*" That this
should be taken as the attitude ssf the
greatest of the colonies Is u calamity.
If it were true It would mean an end
to hopes of u united Empire.
But Hritish Canadians know lhat It Is
not ti-ui*. tliat Sir Wilfrid La Uriel's
voles1 on matters relating to tii,' [Umpire
Is not the voice of Canada. Sir Wilfrid
knows it too. Once before, at the outbreak of the Boer War, he heard the
voice of Canada and reluctantly and sullenly obeyed. Now he hns bad his revenge. But he will hear thul voice
again before long, telling him that he
has grossly misrepresented Canada's attitude towards ttie Anglo-Saxon world.
Only four days more remain before
the submission to the property owners
of the city of the School Loan Hylaw.
The question of the amount is of no
moment. 'I'he citizens? who believe in
public schools will vote the amount
asked for by tbe board of trustees, and
approved by the city council. They
iwill trust tliat the two bodies elected
by them to manage their affairs, financial and other, will not squander or
waste city money, but will expend it
with the view of combining efficiency
wiih economy. There arc Iwo classes
of people w'ho may feel some reluctance
about supiHirting tlie measure: those
who, having no children, feel that they
are not directly benefitted liy schools,
and care nothing abom tin' health and
comfort of the children of others; and
those* wbo do not believe in the principle of public schools. For both these
classes the Question at Issue ls: Is It
well for Nelson to keep tlie reputation
she has of possessing thc worst school
building in the province? Is lt well,
that all children not now iu school,
either new comers or children just attaining school age, should be refused admission? The limit of outside accom-
modiition for classes is readied���tlie
limit of satisfactory accommodation was
passed some years ago. Nelson expects
a real estate boom. If she wishes tti
avoid it, to keep people away, she has
only to ndvertise thut she is poor anil
hopeless by defeating the school bylaw.
The complaint of O. O. S. Llndsey
against thc public interest lhat forced
an early settlement of the coal miners'
strike, Is ample justification, if any
more were needed, for tlie charge mash'
hy the miners and tbe board of trade
delegates, thai he was the chief cause
of tbe strike and the chief obstacle In
the way of settlement. Even yet he appears not to realize that the interests of
a million people between Winnipeg anil
the Paclflc are more important than his
personal gratification in a victory over
his employees. It will be generally regretted throughout British Columbia
and Alberta that the Victoria Week's
guess tbat Mr. Llndsey was about to retire from the management of the
C. N, P. C. Co. is Incorrect.
Our morning contemporary took the
trouble to telegraph to Toronto for a
contradiction of a statement in the Victoria Week. Surely that was a waste of
energy. It ls hardly a month ago that
the Week announced "authoritatively"'
that Attorney General Fulton would
give his sanction to all prosecutions begun under the Lord's Dav Act.

Information as to Proceedingt It Gradually  Leaking  Out���Laurier
Played Buffer.
London, May 15.���A d��-|iutatlon of
M. I'.'a and re|ire��euUitives of commercial Intcri-ma 0f Ireland waited on
Sir Wilfrid laurler loday regarding the
abandonment ot Moviiie an a port of
call for Canadian steamers. The member for Xbnh lymdondcrry spoke of the
dlaaiivantagea to Scotland and the
Norlh of Kngland through the BubBtltu-
Hon of Liverpool for I^jch Foyle. Sir
Wilfrid promised to lay the vlewB of
the deputation before Hon. Mr. Cartwright. He nointed out that the shortening of tlie time occupied In the passage between Canada and the Mother
Country Is a great desideratum with the
Canadian governmenL Sir Wilfrid
asked for information as to the alleged
incapacity of I^ough Foyle to accommodate tlie largest mail steamers.
A hint of the differences which have
existed among the members of the Imperial Congress was given by Mr. Churchill on Tuesday, when he referred to the
preference question as the apple of discord. There ts every reason to believe
that when tlie full reiiort of the pro
ceedlngs is available lt will be seen
that thruughout It all Sir Wilfrid has
continually acted aB a buffer between
lhe eager 1'refercntiallsts and the immovable Free Traders of the home government, and preventing any unfortunate collision.
Whatever else may or may not have
been accomplished, the public speeches
of Premier Deakln and Sir Wilfrid Laurler have given an Immense Impetus to
the movement for a colonial preference.
In stating his objections lo Premier
Doakln's proposal for a one per cent,
lax on foreign Imports, yesterday, Sir
Wilfrid Laurier pointed out that It was
an absolute departure from the doctrine
of constitutional government to provide
money in advance without voting It for
a particular purpose.
Neither this resolution nor Lloyd-
George's amendment expressing the desirability of devising means for systematic consultation between representatives of various parts of the Empire,
were put to a vote, but the resolution
favoring a universal penny postage and
alternative cable routes passed.
On the question of naturalization a
resolution was agreed to proposing an
Inquiry with a view to attaining uniformity and ascertaining how far and
under what conditions naturalization in
one part of Ihe Empire should be effective In the other parts, a subsidiary conference to be held if necessary.
Owing to the method of reporting the
colonial conference speeches upon
points upon which thero Is a disagreement are not reported, but passed over
with the statement that the proposal
was not concurred In. However, some
particulars do leak out. The Daily
Chronicle has the following in reference
to the discussion on emigration:
"This sitting of the Imperial Conference was remarkable for three unusual
features, which differentiated It from all
previous sittings. In the first place,
there were three Imiierinl cabinet ministers present (Lord* Elgin, Mr. John
BurnB and Mr. Herbert Gladstone). Secondly, there was an onslaught on a British government department by a colonial premier that lacked nothing ln vigor
even If it failed somewhat In justlflca-
ilon by facia; and .thirdly, there was
tlie quite unprecedented spectacle of a
Hritish cabinet minister abandoning
conciliatory platitudes and defending
his department with a vigor lhat was
ni least equal to his critics, and a knowl-
pslgo lhat was necessarily somewhat
Thore was no difference of opinion
over Ihe desirability of encouraging
llrlllsh emigrants to proceed to Hritish
colonies. Whero the difference of opinion arose was in relation to the methods
of thc llrltlsh emigration bureau.

cy by i axing Itself to substitute white
for colored workers.
Jiut the white workers do not appear
to have been prepared In sufficient numbers to take up the work. At all events,
the Queensland government found it expedient to invite immigrants from England, tu pay their passage and guarantee them a year's employment In "agricultural pursuits." Just here Is where
the misunderstanding (tf understanding
there ls) arises. Hritish agricultural
laborers have been warned that In emigrating to Queensland under the conditions above mentioned they were giving up ordinary farm work in a temperate climate to undertake tropical labor In the cane fields. In other wordB,
they were undertaking to do "black
man's work."
Mr. BurnB (according to the official
report, which discreetly omits any reference to anything productive of friction) explained that His Majesty's government were considering how far they
could adopt the report of the International Department committee, one of
whose recommendations was the reorganization of the Emigrants' Information Office. At the same time he gave
reasons for thinking that under present
conditions timt offlce did work that was
valuable both to this country and the
colonies, and that iu the particular case
referred to, their action was right, His
Majesty's government could not exercise any preference between the colonies; all they could do was to furnish
the most reliable information possible,
and leave the Intending emigrant to
make his own selection. He quoted figures showing that under this method
the proportion of emigrants proceeding
to British colonies, as compared with
foreign countries, had steadily Increased
in recent yean.
Mr. Deakln repeated his already-published plea for a "white Australia" built
upon an Anglo-Saxon base, and pledged
his government and his parliament to
a policy that would give free access to
every part of the Commonwealth to
every emigrant from the United Kingdom who came to the Commonwealth
free of disease or criminal taint. There
were certain limitations set upon the
Importation of contract labor into Australia, but; broadly speaking, the British
emigrant was as free to go to Australia
as he was to go to the United States,
and just as well assured of a cordial
welcome with the added privilege of becoming a member of a community that
was more British than any other part
of the Empire outside the United Kingdom.

known In Nelson, whero he lived so
long, has written a friend in .Nelson that

suceess fn selling stock, both in Winnipeg and Brandon. A portion of the
stock will be placed in every town ami
city in the province of Manitoba, and

stockholders and business in Saskatchewan, Alberta and Hritish Columbia. His

The Produce Market.
A local produce firm has received the
following notification from Hrandon,
Man.: "As for creamery butter It cannot
be had in the country; the make is not
sufficient to supply the local demand,
and is decreasing rather than increasing. It will be at least a month before
there is much improvement, aa the food
is done and no growth in sight, and
many cattle are dying." It is expectod
that relief will come from Alberta. The
same firm has received the following
notification from St. Thomas. Ont.. with
regard to eggs and cheese: "Owing to
extremely cold weather market for eggs
continues very firm and it would be almost impossible to buy a car of eggs or
new cheese that would enable you to
sell at a profit." Owing to the cold
weather and backward season in California, new imported vegetables, viz..
onions, potatoes, cabbage, etc., will be
a month later than usual.

Thc   Limelight   of   Publicity   Makes   a
t Man    Self-Conscious.
When a man takes himself for granted his ego is termed "Relf-consclous-
ness." The men who make ihe Semi-
ready tailoring have been so long under
the light of publicity that the people
know nil about their system of making
men's clothes by the cultivation of export labor.
"It takes three years to teach a man
who comes to us a Journeyman," said
the  superintendent   of the Semi-ready.
One may look at the joining on the
back of a Semi-ready coal collar to see
just how expert the workers become
when thus divided Into sets.
