On March 6, Mr, Fielding served
about no preliminary objections, for
the most pan excessively technical,
against proceeding with the petition.

Mr. Fielding took out an order, dated

Appeal was taken to the supremo

Immediately and unanimously reversed the Judgment of Ihe Nova Scotia
chief justice, ao far as the question of
service wae concerned. It held, however, aB to the investigation of the
11.00 election, that it iwissesaed no
power ol reviewing his Judgment. The
petition was accordingly reinstated,
less the paragraphs relating to 1900,
and came on lor trial alter the session
or 1905.
Another Attack Made.
The troubles of the much enduring
petition were not yet over. Mr. Field-
ding's counsel made another -attack
upon its suing heard, again on purely
technical grounds. The objections
were heard by the court in banc.
Aguin the chief justice ruled against
any further proceedings upon lhe petition, and he was supported by Mr.
Justice Lbngley, B trienri and colleague or Mr. Fielding's who hnd just

however, outvoted these two, and the
petition lived.

Sad  Story  of  Small   Peculation!
Developing Enormous Forgeries
Retold in His Case.
Chicago, Sept. 4.���A cable despatch
to the Tribune from Tangier says
"Paul O. Btensland's confession, made
in Assistant Stntes Attorney Olsen
yesierday clears up much of the mystery surrounding the crash which was
involved in the ruin of the Milwaukee
Avenue hank. He took much of the
blame upon himself, but declared that
Cashier Herring waa the forger and
that Herring gol most ut tbe money.
He denied that he had ever spent any
money ou women and deck red lhat he

on himself. Al' the money he Btole

"Stensland said he was gUil he was
no longer a wanderer on the lace or
the earth. He did not know it would
be so hard to be a lugitlve. StenBland
made no attempt to deny his guilt and
only tried to minimize It. He said:
i cannot understand how the shortage
can be $2,000,000. To my certain
knowledge by liability to the bank
does not exceed $500,000. Anything
over must have been taken by Herring. My indebtedness began a long
time ago. It was a small atrair, a
small amount, and I never intended
lo steal. 1 was in a tight hole and
needed money. I put my own note,
genuine, not a rorgery. Into the box.
Then it was suggested to me that tho
bank examiner would Btand lor It and
he did.-

"And you acquiesced?"
"Yes; rirst he tempted, then he
begged, and I fell. Ever alter I was
absolutely In his power. He owned
me. body and soul."
"How many or the forgeries did you
do yourself?"
"Not one. Herring. I think, did all."
Washington, D. C, Sept. 4.���The
state department is. more greatly concerned over the steps to tie up a deposit of money which had been made
In a bank at Tangier, Morocco, by
Paul 0. StenBland, president or lhe
Milwaukee Avenue Slate bank or t'hi-
oagocago than with the extradition ot
the fugitive banker himself.
There are certain quest ions on International law involved which must
lie sen led before tlie money can be
gained lor Ihe depositora. Tho relations between the United States and
Morocco nre not very clearly defined
and therefore ihe procedure is Indefinite. Acting Secretary or Slate Ad-
dee hns asked the solicitor lor the
State department lor a ruling to determine just whnt the department may-
do. The deposit is reported to be
about $12,000.
The Immigration  From  India.
It seems very desirable (hat the Dominion governmenl should lose no
time In making uu Investigation of
the ciroumstanoes connected with the
very considerable emigration now being directed rrom llittlsh India to
British Columbia, says lhe News-Ad-
verllser. To make such an Inquiry
desirable and Indeed urgent, it is nol
necessary to dwell upon the Injury
likely to be caused Canadians by the
Introduction ol this cheap labor Irom
Asia. Tho Inquiry Is needed on be-
hair or tho Immigrants themselves.
Thoy cannot nsslnilllate with our people; Ihey are nol titled ror some Borts
of labor as ibe Japanese, still less aa
ihe Chinese. Their employment;
therefore, must be precarious, with
the probable fcault of destitution or
appeals to charity.
While they are declared to be In
masvy cases without any means on
their arrival here, it is evident that
a very considerable amount of money
must be forthcoming from some
source to pay the pnssage money of
the hundreds of Indians who have already reached here. Information on
this point should be ascertainable
without dlfriculty. We also think that
the Dominion government should at
once communicate with the Htitlsh authorities on the other sldo, requesting
them to take steps to check the emi
gration to Canada, and pointing out
the unfavorable conditions that will
confront the Indians on their arrival
here. That la the manner ln which
the difficulty can be most promptly
met. Otherwise months will elapse
while the authorities are making the
Inquiry ln accordance with all the routine and red tape that Is the delight
of the official mind and the problem
with which we ar* faced wilt become
still more difficult of solution,

Chicago, Sept. 4.���A dispatch to the
Inter- Ocean rrom Mexioo City says:
"Wllh their bodies severely burned by
the tires on Mount Coliml volcano. 14
venturesome delegates to the International congress or geologists, which
met in this city this week, returned
here yesterday. The trip to the crater
of the volcano was a perilous one and
had never been accomplished before
by any one. The party established
camps at dirrerent points on the ascent and made a certain amount ot
progress each day until the summit
waa finally reached. The volcano was
pouring forth great volumes of smoke
but this did not deter the explorers
from advancing to the very edge ot
the crater. A hot. and sudden blast of
fire from the depths below badly
scorched their bodies and they beat a
hasty retreat. Frank M. Adams and
A. Bancroft of Montreal and A. P.
Coleman of Toronto were among the
daring party."
Welcome Governor-Gener-
Does   Not   Like  the   Papal   Throne
Will Not Hold Consistory.
New York, Sept. 4. ��� Archbishop
John Keal of Dubuque, Iowa, who has
Just returned from France, at the
Paulist house in West 59th street, today said: "Pope Plus was practically
forced on the papal throne. He did
not wish to take the responsibility. He
will not live long. He does not want
to. In my opinion he will never hold
a consistory and the outlook of the
creation of an American cardinal Is
not encouraging. The pope, a few
days after his elevation, declared that
he would never hold a consistory and
that he did not wish to have a long
pontificate. 1 believe his wishes will
be fulfilled." If the pope should decide to honor this country I believe
he would not create one cardinal but
two, and they would be the archbishop of New York and Archbishop Ireland."

Churches and    Lodges    Doing Well���
Only    City    Lot    Remains    Unimproved and Unattractive.
The condition of the public plot ln
the city cemetery Is sadly out of keeping with that of the various lots under private control and should receive
early attention from  the city council.
The plots belonging to the different
city churches are well kept and present a creditable appearance.
Some time ago the Masons, Odd
Fellows, Eagles and Knights of Pythias appointed delegates to a joint committee to arrange for co-operation ln
beautifying the resting places ol departed brethren.
Their work has ben well done: the
graas lias lieen cut, the plots leveled
and gravel walks laid between.
Meanwhile the portion ol the cemetery under direct control ot the council remains in Its primitive state. It
has not beeu leveled, but Is rough and
uneven: there is a rank growth of
coarse griiBS and weeds, and the earth
from recently made graves lies ln
rough heap's.
The cemetery Is beautifully situated and lends Itself readily to Improvement. A very small expenditure
would make It a beauty spot and
bring it Into something like harmony
with Ihe general Idea or reverence due
the dead.

Arrive at Noon-Will be Ret
at Kootenay Landing.
Telegrams, reports and rumors as bo
the hour at which the members of the
vice-regal party will reach Nelson tomorrow are still���at 4 p. m.���hopelessly at variance.
The belief at local C. P. R. headquarters and tbe assumption on which
the service ls being arranged, Is that
the first Information given out is correct, namely, that Earl Grey and his
party will arrive In Nelson on board
the steamer Kuskanook about noon.
A meeting of the' general reception
committee will be held ln the city hall
tonight about 9 o'clock, as soon as the
business of the city council is finished.
The members of the council and
others, to be Invited by the mayor tonight, will take the steamer for Kootenay Landing tomorrow morning at
4:30 and accompany the Earl and
Countess to the city.
The hour of arrival will be telegraphed to the city from Kootenay
Landing tomorrow. If, as expected,
it will be at noon, the afternoon will
be declared by the mayor a civic holiday.
The party will be met at the city
wharf by the remainder of the committee and a military guard of honor
from the Rocky Mountain Rangers under command of Captain Forln.
The program as planned will then be
carried out���a parade ot the school
children, presentation of flowers, and
the reading of an address, and singing
ot the national anthem at the recreai-
tion grounds.
In the evening a reception will be
held in the armory, which ls being
brilliantly decorated for the occasion.
Welcoming banners will be displayed
on Stanley and Victoria streets.
The remainder of the program will
be governed entirely by the wishes of
their excellencies.

*��� By one word we tire so met! met Judged LO be

Special dispatches from Ottawa indicate that the conference of provincial premiers, with the Dominion cab-
iuet, to discuss the question of better
terms, has been arranged 'L*1(i lliat **���
will be held some time early In October. There seemed at one lime no
likelihood that it would take place,
for while Sir Wilfrid had promised to
meet the premiers and consider their
grievances, a member ot the Dominion cabinet said recently in a speech
in his own constituency that such a
meeting would be inadvisable, dang ir*
ous and probably lead to a dissolution
of the federation. The argument was
that reopening of ihe question, in
view ot the granting of autonomy to
the two new provinces on the prairies,
would involve the reopening of the autonomy question for each of the other
provinces, and the inference wan that
some of lhe provinces, notably Quebec, might nol be -satisfied with what
the Dominion would be prepared to
gram, with consequent federal rupture as the result.
Sir Wilfrid, however, seems to think
that a readjustment is no longer to be
delayed With smooth words and indefinite promises, aad so the question
will have to be faced, it is a grave
and serious matter and will lax tbe
diplomatic and tactful resources ot
the best and wisest political leaders
in Canada, and we are not afraid to
predict that the results when -reached
will be unsatisfactory to some of the
Under the present system the customs revenue from the various provinces varies widely, being much more
in the cast- of some ihan of others.
'j he distribution of federal grants to
the provinces is on 0 I" r capita basin
and takes no notloe <>f tin- peculiar
conditions which make each province
peculiar lu Its claima upon the Jh>-
minion  resources.
As un Instance. In tha province ol
British Columbia tin* population li ss
yet comparatively sparse, but the necessity for developments and Improvements in puhlle works is perhaps
greater than in any other province al
the present  time.
So long us the grants fontinue on a
per capita   basis    this    province must
continue to consider Itself unfairly
dealt wiih, because it is nol to be expected tha. It can overtake the pace
of The earlier and older settled provinces or even the rapidly filling provinces on the prairies. On the other
hand, if there is any attempt to recognize the special need oi this Far
West we may depend upon ii that the
hidebound politicians of the Earn win
protest and will ask lhat their own
speclul cases receive consideration.
They will find special cases that in
their minds call for remedial treatment The difficulty Which the West
lias ever had to contend against 's to
awa'ken in the Kast a just appreciation of the value to the Dominion of
Ub  Western  wealth    and    the  Impor
tance of substaniial assistance to
make th'- wealth of the West a part
ui* the developed  wealth nf iin- whole.
Tin* question is nm one which
properly belongs to lln* realm of party
politics lint one which affects the
province as a whole and in which all
shades of political opinion are practically in agreement. The Colonist in
a strong article on  the subject says:
"It is to be hoped that the press of
the province will, without distinction
of party, back up the demands made
on our behalf with all the vigor a:
their command, and that the mem-
bets of th��* local leuislature will cause
ii to he known lhat, however they
may differ from their colleagues on
other points, they are all of one mind
as K   lhe need of better terms.
���The whole legislature is on record
on this point and the time has arrived
when any personal influence possessed
by Liberal members of the house
ought to be employed in behalf of the
province. Our representatives will not
go to Ottawa* as representatives of a
political party, but to look after ihe
welfare of the whole province on the
only occasion ihat offered itself in the
course of a generation and the only
one likely to occur during the next
generation, to place the financial relations of British Columbia and the
Dominion on a just basis."
There Is, therefore, no disjwisition
on the part of the Conservative press
to Increase the embarrassment of the
position of Canada's premier. The
only wish is that British Columbia
may lie heard and fairly dealt with on
the merits of her case. The only fear
The Canadian has. is that the hidebound Easi will fail to arise to the
magnitude of the situation and will.
for s Ifish and individual purposes,
insist on a readjustment .'tern:: lines
which will, by comparison, work a
grievous wrong to thla province.
The Canadian has for some time, in
commpn with other newspai>ers and
private individuals, suffered great In-
convt nience because of some flaws in
tin postal arrangements which affect
the local delivery of mail matter, particularly newspapers. The Canadian
has not been disposed to join in the
crusade against the postal facilities
which has been so common in the
West, at least in so far as complaints
affecting the local office is concerned.
But our patience of late has been so
sorely tried that silence is no longer
advisable. While we do not believe
ihat the local office is in any way to
blame for the condition about which
we Intend to complain, the matter is
serious enough to indicate thai there
i can leaaness in the supervision ol
ih< regulation! which affect the carrying and distribution of the malts
ci me to tin local office.
The Canadian has beard many cone
lalntH ihat newspapers from the <-ast
and from coast points as well, arrive
al ihis point In bunches and not In
ihe daily rot-tine of regular delivery,
it is not an uncommon, rather a very
common experience, to receive no
leading papers from the east foi two
and three days al a time and ihen
to receive the back numbers in a
bunch at one delivery. The same
thing happens with the coast malls
and leads to lhe conclusion that an
equally Irregular delivery of important  letter matter takes place.
We do not assert that all the eastern papers fall of delivery on the
same day, but it is notable lhat. first
one and then another, of the very
papi rs that are required in order
thai the press of the Dominion may
keep iu touch, are not nl hand when
most required. This last fact alone
goes to show that the fault is not in
the offices  mailing    the    papers    but
must exist at some point along the
route of mail exchange or through
carelessness on the part of employes
of the postal department.
Tbe fact thai this fault is growing
gradually worse goes to show that
there is an unwholesome lack of re-
apecl for regulations, and an equally
unwholesome lack ol respect tor the
authorities whose duty it is to see
that the mlnutae and details of the
regulations are carried  out.
We sincerely trust tbat. along with
other matters of superlative Importance to the public, who pay hand*
Bomely that a* surplus may be declared
it. the postal department, this matter
win receive the early attention of the
department, so that a long suffering
public may be relieved of what ls assuming ihe proportion of an Intolerable nuisance.
The only answer the Daily .News
gives to The Canadian's challenge to
discuss political issues on a high plane
and free from the element of slander
is the following:
However, the time will yet come
when some very interesting questions
ct'iirerning the relations of Hon. Mr.
Green, the Andersons, Mr. Bodwell,
Mr. Larsen and ihe Grand Trunk Pacific will be asked once more."
r.ackslidden already, eh?
The most Important event occurring
on top of the earth yesterday was the

The Winnipeg Telegram in a recent
number 1ms this to say of the future or
the Industry in Canada, and with
spociuil reference to British Columbia.
"There will be from six to seven
hundred million feet of lumber utilized
by the three provinces of Manitoba,
���Saskatchewan a��d Alberta this year.
The sources of supply are Hritish
Columbia, the Lake of the Woods, the
Rainy river dlstricl and the spruce
districts of the north.
ll is the estimate of the lumber merchants that 000 feet of lumber Is required for eaoh unit of population under normal conditions. In the city ot
Winnipeg, with its present Increasing
growth, the calculation Is from 600 to
700 feet per unit.
Very little lumber manufactured in
Winnipeg or east of it is marketed beyond the western boundaries of the
province of Manitoba, and the Hritish
Columbia lumber that finds its way into Manitoba is of the higher and heavier gradea.
One-half or the lumber used in Manitoba comes from the districts immediately eaat, one-half from the north and
Hritish Columbia, it is the opinion of
practical lumbermen that in lhe near
future the chief source of supply for
Hie lumber needs of Manitoba will be
British Columbia, as it is believed
that the timber resources of the eastern region, with an incn using demand,
Will not last much longer than a
quarter of a oentury. it is expected
that within that time other interior
WOO-flB til-sides those now on the market
Will be Utilized.
Prices for lumber are practically lhe
same on both sides of the international
boundary line, lumbermen contend and
give as an instance a Canadian company doing business in the Rainy river
district, which shipped a consignment
of lumber to Chicago the other day,
paid the duty and the extra freight and
still found the transaction profitable.
This was an unusual Instance, affected
possibly by the supply availnble at a
certain time, but bears out the contention thai there is very little difference in the price of lumber on either
Bide of the international boundary. The
same fonditlons, it Is said, prevail west
of the Rocky mountains.
The -price of common lumber on the
cars in Winnipeg and Manitoba is from
$16 to $22 per thousand at the present
time, and of Hritish Columbia fir $25
per thousand. With tho phenominal
building enterprise in Winnipeg and
western Canada of the past few years
there is still every assurance that there
will be no marked advance in prices or
shortage of lumber in the near future.
I.umbermen in lhe west state that In
the fnce of the great demand there Is
Is a shortage In the money available for
(he development of their enterprises
and a shortage In the labor available
through the competition of railway
construction. It Is contended that
Western Canada is developing so fast
Industrially and agriculturally that
the increase of the lumber Industry
ts handicapped by lack of men and
money. The fact is cited tha* $70,-
000,000 more money has been placed
this year in loans In the Dominion of
Canada than a year ago. The obvious
conclusion ts that Canada is making
proportionately greater progress nt tho
present time than (here are Inhor and
capital u-vallnblo. ��� Winnipeg Teleg-
that It may be said to be invariably���
the tune of "Scots Wha Hae Wi' Wallace Hied"���doubtletu u fine old Scottish air. There may. however, be too
much of even a good thing; and some
tof those who have to listen to the
noise made by said gramophone, especially if the said gramophone has
to be kept going���occasionally, by way
of variation, some other air would be
ground out which would give pleasure
to the voluntary listeners as the said
Scottish  air. BRITON.
