In several cities on holh slih-s of the

King   and   Cabinet   Honor   Carduccl���
State  Will   Conduct Obsequies.
Home, Feb. If, ��� King Victor Emmanuel nnd ihe cabinet have telgraphed
iheir condolences to the Carduccl family at Bologne, on the death of (llsouse
Carduccl yesterday, the poet and professor of Italian literature at the University of Bologne. Premier Glolottl, who Is
ulso the minister of the Interior, has
ordered lhat the funeral lie conducted
at the expense of the slate, lt is pointed out that while four distinguish
personages made the nation what It ls
Carduccl greatly Improved lt Intellectually.
lt is proposed to bury the poet's body
lu the famouB church of Santa Crol, at
Florence, whlcch ls known as the Pantheon of Florence, and It Is also proposed to erect a monument to Carduccl
at Bologne and place a bust In the
capitol here.
Premier Glolltti and several deputies
paid tribute to the dead poet and the
deputies decided to participate In the
By   Means   of   X-Rsy   Equipment���De
tailed Statement ot Interesting
Experiment���Na Escape.
The proposal to detect smuggled articles, whether on the person of the smuggler, or In packages, by means of the
Roentgen ray. was made several years
ago. It is now learned that this plan
has hail a successful trial by the French
government. The system employed Is
that of Adolphe Le Roux.
The plan ls to hnve every passenger
on board a vessel from a foreign port
pass In front of the x-ray apparatus
and subject himself to a thorough examination. In this way smuggled articles concealed anywhere about the person can be Instantly detected. As It
ls not necessary to remove any of Ihe
clothing, thc passengers are caused ub-
Holutely no annoyance, and as all are
I rested alike they suffer no Indignity
by being obliged to stand In front of
thnt searching, penetrating, little x-ray
machine. Thc process Is quick and the
expense ls more than counterbalanced
by tho cuttlg down of the number of
customhouse officials. One man can examine all the ships that come to port
ln a day, and thero is no patience-trying delay.
In the trial mention 16*; persons were
examined In 45 minutes, and on them
were found Jewels and merchandise hidden for the occasion. Watches were discovered sewed ln tro lining of one man's
coat. In the hem of a woman's skirt
were found the rings pnt there to test
the system.. A tiny Jeweled locket was
revealed hidden In a young man's
mouth, underneath his tongue, while
under the culls of a woman's hair the
x-ray showod quite plainly several
watch chains and a bracelet. Another
"smuggler" carried several cardcases
spread out flat against his feet. Right
through his shoes and stockings the
x-ray penetrated, and the dlaBps on the
cardcases stood out good and clear to
thc eye of the examiner.. The buttons
on several pairs of gloves betrayed their
presence next to the skin, somewhere
in the region of the heart, of a French
official who tiled to fool the little ma-
chlao by wrapping each glove up first
Iin lnen nnd then ln tissue paper. Tho
x-ray saw through his deception immediately. He wns accused of "currying
concealed buttons which wero perhaps
attlachod to some dutiable articles." He
confessed like a man and the x-ray re-
cilved another good mark as a detective. Heuded by Mr. Lo Roux (the outsiders gathered together for the examination being dismissed) the officials
tramped over lo the post office with
their x-ray machine, and there proceeded to pry Inlo envelops and packages without removing flaps or strings.
All BOrts of foreign arllcles were found
hidden in Innocent places.
With every country using the x-ray
at the cuBtom house and poat office,
smuggling would soon cense, for there
seems to be no way to fool thiB little
agent. Every means of baffling It were
tried at Mr. Le Roux's test. Articles
were wrapped in many thicknesses of
paper and woolen fabrlCB. and Ihey were
hidden In all sorts of queer places, but
once the x-ray gol busy they might Just
sb well have shouted out their where-
aboutsf, for not a single hidden article
escaped detection.���Literary Digest.

Family Throws Open Doors of Monay
Vault and Goes the Limit In
Now York, Feb. 16.���When the Thaw
trial is ended how will the Thaw fortune fare? What will the expense be?
More than that of any murder trial that
has ever taken place In New York.
Never before in the court annals of
this city has such an expensive array
of legal talent been gathered together
ln a criminal case. It is expensive not
only on account of ablll'y, but because
of the disposition of the Thaw family
to throw open the doors of their money
vaults and "go the .limit" for the defence of the man on trial.
The Thaw fortune, according to
Pittsburg estimates, Is about $40,000,-
000. all the tremenduous strength of
this fortune has been thrown Into the
battle to save Harry K. Thaw from the
death chair.
Taken in Its entirety the Thaw trial
will cost moro than 1300,000. This may
bo divided approximately as follows:
Lawyers, $200,000; out of-town detectives, (50,000; preparation ot case and
Incidentals, $60,000.
Of courBe this amount Ib only a fraction of the annual Income of the Thaw
There has been considerable speculation as to the cost of the trial to the
County of New York, and many wild
guesses have been made. In order to
setttle the matter for good and all, figures have been obtained ln the district
attorney's ofllce that show the total cost
of the trial for the country will be
somewhere between $10,000 and $15,000,
an exceedingly low figure when all circumstances are considered. The fees
of medical experts will make more than
the total amount. The two trials of
Roland Moiineux put the county to an
expense of upward of $80,000 and It cost
$50,000 to convict Albert T. Patrick.
In both trials of Moiineux and Patrick
many medical experts were employed,
and experts are luxuries. In the Thaw
case three medical experts are lined up
with the prosecution. They are Drs.
Flint, MacDonald and Hatson.
These experts receive a compensation dependeent on thetr appearance In
court. They are paid $100 a day tor
every day they attend the sessions.

If tho number und nature of the resolutions pi'osonietl anil passed by the
board of trade on Thursday evening
may be taken as an Indication there ls
abundant evidence that the board Is
thoroughly alive to lho strenuous nature
of Its responsibility in tho development
of the Interior of tho provlnoe. It is
Just such representative lioslies which
can apply the InfluenoeB to secure the
Concessions, legislative anil other enactments which so far as government attention goes does help iss develop a
Of the resolutions under discussion
we think three deserve particular mention anil such support as the press Is
able to give, while of course all were
important. That of .Mr. Morley urging
upon iho Dominion government iho importance of establishing an s xperlmental
frull farm ut some suitable point In the
Interior lias already been the subject
of frequent comment in Tbe Daily
Canadian. It Is now conceded that there
_ is an unpalellcil future for the fruit
growing industry in lho Interior of British Columbia and every stop shoulil be
taken lhat will further anil foster Ihan
Industry.. An experimental farm Is not
a costly auxiliary lo this Industry. The
expenditure in wages is relatively very
small while the outlay Tor accessories
and supplies is correspondingly light.
When the enormous benefits of such
an outlay nro considered It seems little
short of deliberate negligence that this
aid lo the idustry should be denied.
There Is of course some excuse that an
experimental farm has not already been
established at some point in the Koote
nays but now that the demonstrations
of the possibilities of Ihe country have
been made every section of the community should unite I urging upon the
authorities at Ottawa the needs of the
place. Thai lhe lusaril of trade will
strenuously press ihis matter cannot be
ilnubied and Ihey sliould persist until
their petitions are rewarded. Every year
lost now will mean a sum total of great
loss to the whole upper country while
time taken by the forelock will add Immensely to tho products of the land.
Of even greater Importance, as affecting a much larger section of the country
was the resolution of Mr. lilack calling
for a thorough investigation of the
causes of the fuel shortage during the
winter now almost past. The fuel shortage in Canada from ocean to ocean lias
during lhe past few months been such a
serious problem that there will be a
united and urgent appeal to the Dominion government io take the necessary steps during the summer to prevent a recurrence of the famine. Whatever corporation, economic or transportation problems underlie the anticipation of such a recurrence tho question
is one of such seriousness that lt should
not be shelved upon any commission but
calls for Immediate action. The government which is ingenious enough to
devise means and courageous enough
to adopt measures that will protect the
people from such suffering as has been
ihe common experience this winter will
merit lhe confidence and support of
the people.
While the Dally Canadian has always
advocated the ownership and operation
of public resources and utilities for the
public itself It may not be out of place
to assert that nature herself seems to
bo forcing tbe soundness of that economic principle upon the attention of
the people. The strife between the employer and employed, the callousness of
corporations and carrying companies,
the limitations Involved In the necessity
for economies In order to declare dividends and enrich Ihe owners of natural
resources and public utilities would all
seem to Indicate strongly that there
must be a better way. In times past
nature has often asserted herself and
sometimes mercilessly to force men and
nailons to lake those steps without
which the welfare of tho people must
Buffer and the public be denied Its
We think Captain McMorris also took
a step In the right direction in bringing
thus prominently into relief the question of public ownership of telephones.
The feasibility and even necessity for
such a step In the Interest of the public
Is held by a large number of people in
every community but the sentiment can
never be crystullzed until It Is taken in
hand by some representative body and
made, the subject of education und
Manitoba, against a most strenuous
fight In opposition lias adopted the principle and In the opinion of this paper
has taken a long Btep In the direction
of public convenience as well as the
cheapening of so necessary a modern
adjunct to civilisation. The open discussion of the questions In public debate would do much to create a senll-
meiit In favor of public ownership where
It does not exist und foster It where It
does. We hope to see the board of
trade Include I its programme a series
of public or at least open meeting for
the discussion of this aud kindred
The other resolutions passed by the
board while of a general nature will be
looked after by those whose Interests
are most directly concerned but those
mentioned need public discussion.
The meeting of representative trustees of tlie schools throughout the province, held in Nelson during lliis week,
was an event of more than ordinary importance in the development of the educational system and practice of the
province. Wlille during the past few
years the convention Idea has been overdone���run Into the ground ln fact���being too often made the excuse for a
monster outing along the line of whose
pilgrimage flags and bunting have been
the principal evidence of serious work,
the same cannot be said In this case.
The subjects brought under discussion,
the resolutions passed and the general
Intelligence and seriousness with which
the questions were discussed showed
that the members of the Nelson convention have the educational interests of
the young people of llrltlsh Columbia
deeply at heart.
While a general appreciation of some
of the subjects discussed is more a matter for those directly Interested In
educational work or for those responsible for lt there are some features of
the gathering which should not be allowed to escape public attention. In
a province like British Columbia, of
such an extended area and with such
segregated and Isolated school districts
the meeting of educators and the discussion of educational problems must
be of great advantage. If school trustees have handicaps they lie chiefly In
the necessity of looking almost exclusively at home interests. How this or
that feature of a general system may
effect other districts is not easy to discover unless by meeting and discussion
of experiences. Of the many resolutions
passed, apart from those which were
purely technical or administrative in
their reference perhaps [he most Important one was the recommending the
provincial government to set apart portions of public lands to become the basis and guanuntee of revenue for educational purposes both wllh respect to public schools anil universities.
The utilization of portions of the public domain for exclusively public purposes is becoming an accepted principle of modern economics and while perhaps too long a time has already
elapsed before such a step has been
taken in this province there are yet immense sections of the public domain unalienated. These Judiciously selected,
set apart and in due time administered,
will provide ample revenue for all future requirements.
It was gratifying to lea.-:i that one of
the speakers announced his receipt of
assurances from the provincial government thai Biich steps wouhl be taken If
the proposal received Ihe sanction of a
fairly parge proportion of Ihe provln-
clal trustees.
The other feature of the convention
which we think deserves commendation
was the recommendation to fly the flag
over the school houses during the hours
of school. Our Canadian children see
too little of the Canadian flag and the
influences which it might exert in sug
gesting patriotic sentiments are too
olten absent. While "flag Incidents"
sometimes acquire International Importance and the use of the bunting may be
overdone we here In Canada err In the
opposite direction.
The Dally Canadian congratulates the
trustees on the very high order of Uie
matters under discussion and hopes that
with tho growth of population and Increasing responsibility of trustees the
same close attention to business will
always be given.

That makes a pretty big assortment
to OhOOSfl from.
There is a great difference in the
quality of leather Post Cordn. Many so-
called burnt leather cards are not burnt
at all. They are only printed, and when
compared with a really pjod leather
card they have a distinrt air of cheapness about them. The line we handle
are all hand burnt. They are well finished, and there is au evidence of quality about them that is at once apparent.
