Seattle. April 18���The central labor
committee laat night passed resolutions
scoring President Roosevelt's actions ln
referring lo E. H. Harriman aB "a citl-
m as undesirable ub Moyer. Haywood
or Debs." The resolution criticises the
preuldent for prejudicing the alleged
murderers of former Governor Steunen-
berg, of Idaho, before they had their
trial and denying them the rights of
American citizens to be presumed Innocent until proven guilty. The labor
leaders requested that the president retract and asked for a "square deal" for
the men whose names they declare he

Well Known and Esteemed Citizen of
Neleon Accidentally Drowned
at Nakusp.
A telegram received this morning
by A. B. Docksteader from F. S Clements
at Nakusp, contained tbe sad intelligence that the victim of the drowning
accident at that place last night was
A. Kenneth Wattle, of Nelson.
Mr. Wattle had accomi>anieri F. S.
Clements on a surveying expedition and
they reached Nakusp last nlgbt. The exact circumstances of his death are unknown, bul lt is considered likely that
in the darkness he niissod bis footing
on the wharf. His call for help was
heard and every effort was made to
render assistance, but he sank for the
last time just as a boat was launched
by his Intending rescuers.
The body waB recovered this morning
and identified by Mr. Clements. It Is
held at Nakusp awaiting instructions,
first from the coroner, then Mrs.
A. Kenneth Wattle was horn at Vol-
leyfleld, Quebec, and was about 35 years
of age. He has been a resident of Nelson about eight years, having been in
the C. P. R. Bervice ln which he received severe injuries which incapacitated him for many months, later on
the staff of the Nelson customa office,
and dually in business as a customs
He was known to most citizens of
Nelson and generally esteemed for his
kindly and obliging nature. It will be
remembered that It waa he who organized (he crew thai brought Coroner
Elliott from Ymir the morning after thc
death of John  H. Nolan.
The heart-felt sympathy of the community will be extended to Mrs. Wattle ln her bereavement.
Disorder   In   Persia���Massing   Russian
Troop* en Frontier.
St. Petersburg, April 18.���Advices
from the Caucasus say thai Russia is
assembling a body of troops on the
Persian Irontlcr for a demonstration,
which, lt Ib thought, will soon be necessary. Newspaper correspondents are
not allowed to telegraph news of the
movements of the troops, but lt Is
known that 2ft railroad cars, loaded witli
artillery and three reglmenls of Cos-
sucks, passed through Kars. on their
way Bouth last week.
The Russian diplomats describe the
condition of Persia as oompiete chaos,
but they hope that the moral effect
produced by Ihe massing of troops on
the frontier will be sufficient to enable
the Shah to take Ihe necessary steps to
restore order without an actual Invasion. The dissolution of the national assembly may be necessary.
F. A. Starkey Proposes Building: at
Foot of Ward Street-Committee Will Consider.
A Bite has been chosen for the offices
of the 20,000 club which, if approved,
will cost nothing, will afford a conspicuous situation and will at the same
time beautify a portion of the city which
has been left bare and unadorned.
T. G. Procter and F. A. Starkey went
on a tour of inspection this morning
through the business Bectlon of the city
seeking suitable premises. They found
no vacant room in any locality they
thought sufficiently central.
Finally a briliant idea occurred to
Mr. Slarkey���to build an offlce on the
site at the fool of Ward street, on Uie
north side, between the oourt house and
the provincial gaol.
Mr. Procter immediately concurred.
The next -step was to consult Mayor
Gillett who warmly commended the suggestion, and promised his influence to
secure permission for the building and
free labor.
Mr. Starkey thinks that lumber companies doing business in Nelson can be
induced to supply the small amount of
lumber required as a donation to iht*
club. His proposal ls to have the offices
painted in Nelson's colors and have
"20,000 Club" painted on the roof. He
also suggests a flag pole in front of the
Tbe suggestion will be presented to
the executive committee of the club ftt
Its meeting tomorrow night. If approved, as it probably will be, the club
will secure al trilling cost a building
that will serve all the needs at least
until the court house building becomes
city property.
It Is the intention of the promoters
to have one room of the building used
to accommodate the nucleus of a museum.
E. K. Beeston received a telegram
this morning from the Colonist Publishing co., of Victoria, promising delivery'
of 100 copies of the new pamphlet by
Saturday night.
Native  Premier  of  Model   Principality
to Visit England.
London, April 18��� Among the visitors'
from India this season will be I'rabha-
shankar D. Pattani, the most prominent statesman of tbe day ln that part
of India which Is known as the principality of Kathiawad. He holds the responsible post of prime minister ln the
Slates of Bhsvngar which has often
been classed with Mysore as "the, model
slates" of India.'
Among his principal achievements lit
ofllce have been successful measures of
relief in coping with two famines, the
launching of the first external loan by
an Indian state for other purposes than
railway conBtrnctton, and the opening:
of the only port along the western coast
of India, between Bombay and Kur-
rschl. ln some countries work like this
would have brought ihe doer a crop
of decorations, but Mr. Pattani has only
the satisfaction of having gained the
confidence of his prince and the esteem
and gratitude of tbe people wbo have
boneflted by his administration.
Mr. Pattani is a profound thinker on
Indian problems, and writes and speaks-
English with fluency and distinction. In
his picturesque costume he will be a,
strlklng llgure at official and social entertainments this year.

most disappointing held In this city
for some lime. The champion, did not
sliuw any of his usual brilliancy ln
avoiding punishment and lt was only at
long rang range fighting that he waB
able to beat O'Toole. In mixing and
fighting the quaker held his own. At
the end O'Toole was bleeding at the
mouth and nose but Attel was practically without a mark. There were no
knock-downs. Abe was forced to do the
leading and O'Toole waited for counters.

Peary Submits That What He Cannot
Do Is Impossible.
Portland, Me., April 18.���Speaking of
his forthcoming attempt to find the
north pole, Commander Peary said he
expected to arrive among the Icefields
by the middle of July. His equipment
and crew, he said, would be practically
the same as on his recently completed
expedition. He will buy JOD docs, when
he arrives ln Greenland. He anticipates
that the Ap aright be made in about
the same length of time as the 1905
trip, which required about 16 montha.
"In relation to my plans," said Commander Peary, "I shall follow, almost
to the letter, those of my last. I guess
It won't be necessary for me to go into
details about those, as they are too well
known. I shall go aa far north as possible with the Rooosevelt, and after securing the dogs from my Eskimo
Iris.nils, I shall start over the big ice
fields by sleds. While en route we will
establish sub-supply stations or caches,
to be used in case the provisions we
carry should give out. Tbe main source
of supply will be at the Roosevelt. I
am confident that I will be successful
ln this search for the long-sought goal.
At any rate, it will be the supreme effort of my life, snd If I am not successful I sm ready to say that the pole Is
beyond the reach of man."
Big Increase In Value of Annual Product���<*owth Due Mainly to

(Special to The Dally Canadian.)
Fernie, April 18.���A wire received at
noon reports the men at Hlllcrest and
Bankhead all out. Prospect mines are
closed down. It is Impossible anywhere to keep men at work. International Officer Lewis will arrive Monday
in time for the conference and Tuesday's meeting is expected to clear the
matter up. Llndsey has left Toronto
for home. The C. P. R.* ls telling the
miners they cannot pull an engine after
10 days and want to know if the miners
have a full supply of grub to last
Everything is quiet here.
The following extract trom a state-, .
meat issued by President Shera-ui dBT
tains the caae of the striking miners'*
While there were many reasons for
the trouble which exists, the proximate
cause of the crisis may be Bald to have
been the tactical mistake on the part of
the operators ls serving upon their employees and in posting up in conspicuous places, after our request for a conciliation board had been sent in, notices changing the wage scale trom 10
to 20 per cent ln the way of reduction.
The employees when they found that
they could make no agreement with the
operators, immediately took steps to
place themselves under the law, hoping
and expecting thereby to bring about
what they conceived to be justice to
Instead of co-operating with the employees in having a conciliation board
appointed, every operator raised technical objections to the procedure on
the part of the employees. The act requires that the application for the appointment of a board shall set out the
steps which have been taken by the respective parties to the dispute to bring
about a settlement. The compliance
with that part of the act the mine workers set for the proceeding taken at the
joint conference which took place during March at Calgary. The demand at
that conference was, technically speaking, not a demand made upon each oompany Itself, but lt was supposed that
the operators' delegates there had sufficient authority to receive ln behalf
of the company represented by him a
demand made In that manner.
In their reply to a request for a board
of conciliation made by the mine workers, each company set forth ln stereotyped form the following clause: "No
claim or demand such as set out ln
paragraph two of the Btatement accompanying the said request, kas been
made on behalf of the employees of
this company to the company," thus as
It were, discrediting the operators' association. The raising of technical objections ot this kind irritated the employees not a little and resulted in the
United Mine Workers deciding not to
have any further dealing with the operators' association as snch, but the
technical objections raised In this way
were speedily brushed aside and red
tape found no place in the procedure
adopted by the minister of labor.
To the credit of the department of
labor be it said that a greater expedition in bringing the hoard of conciliation Into existence could not hsve been
expected, and were it not for other considerations there Is little doubt that the
mine workers would have continued at
work. The notice given by the operators that a new wage seale would come
Into effect on the 10th of May acted as
a red flag to a bull. It was Impossible
to convince the men that what was stated ln that notice would not be done.
The dissatisfaction became general, and
hundreds of men acting upon Individual
initiative Immediately quit their work
So much has been said as to the Insistence of the mine workers upon a
closed shop that the public has received
the Idea that this is their position. To
negative this Impression, the mine
workers, through their executive, published a declaration that they did not
insist upon the closed shop. Therefore,
thiB contention falls to the ground.

Ignored   Hook  of   Holland   Incident-
Dutch Are Diapleased.
Amsterdam, April 18.���Now that the
wreck of the Berlin at the Hook of Holland is but a souvenir, comment Is rife
regarding the attitude of the German
Emperor ln connection with the -disaster.
Astonishment Is general that the
Kaiser, whose impulsive and generous
nature has hitherto been a byword In
Holland, did not recognize ln some tangible and striking manner the bravery
of the Dutch lifeboat crew and the
courageous and generous action of
Prince Henry. Surprise Is all the more
comprehensive seeing that the majority
of the passengers were Germans, and
that the prince himself related lt to the
German court A contrast ls naturally
drawn between English and German action ln the matter. The promptitude of
King Edwtrd ln sending an envoy to
the Dutch court and the Immediate assistance from English people for the
victims of the disaster find. In effect,
little, lf any, counterpart ln Germany.
Earthquake Anniversay Observed.
San Francisco, April 18.���One year

The day was likewise observed ln Oakland, Berkley, and Ban Jose and numerous other places.
Reports Coming In From Devastsd Districts of Mexico���Ancient
Cathedral Damaged.
Mexico, April 18.���Owing to the great
difficulty in establishing communication
with the cities ln the region of the
greatest devastations wrought by the
recent earthquake, details are coming
In slowly. Each succeeding intelligence
magnifies the extent of the disaster.
From the latest reports it is learned
that the earth is now quiet In the regions which were seriously affected by
the last shock, which occurred as late
as noon yesterday. In the list ot known
dead, which now totals 50, and injured,
which approximates 300, are many
names of Mexicans prominent In the social and official life of the region.
It has been discovered that the Cathedral ot Mexico City, one of the most
solid churches in the world, was
cracked from top to bottom hy the recent earthquake. The fissure is an eighth
inch wide. An engineer haa been appointed to examine the building. The

Bachelors In German Principality Are

of the Hessian parliament
The Mil provides, ln view of the prevailing tfmm.m, mi a*^. rent, eta, tor
an annual -supplementary grant to Ike

state whose incomes do not exceed |SM
per annum, llie grant varies between
$40 and 460. As the bill stands, however, bachelors who have only personal
responsibilities are to receive one-half
the giant
A clause In the original bill ordained
that peraona ln the employ of the state,
who neither are nor have been married, shall receive only halt that
amount; but an amendment was passed
grantihg the full sum to bachelor em-
ployees who maintain a home for parents, relatives or adopted children.
The Hessian government does not favor the amendment, as It will necessitate enquiries Into the private affairs
of employees, but it will probably accept the altuatloa if the upper house
agrees with the lower houae on the subject
It is stated that locally the preference
thus shown to married over bachelor
employees of the state ls approved, and
considered fully justified, as officials
are manifesting an ever-growing disinclination to marriage.

The session of 1807 of the Dominion
parliament will be memorable not for
any wise legislation, nor for any noble
oratorical efforts but for tho -greatest
exposure of dishonesty and'immorality
in the history of Canudiiin public life.
What has been published already is
bad enough, it is enough to make every
Canadian ashamed of his elected rulers
But the statements that have found
their way into the paper* and forced
the resignations of flyman and Emmerson are as nothing compared with-ibe
whole. If what is commonly known in
Ottawa not only among members of
parliament and press gallery, but
amung many othere, were knowu
throughout the country, there would be
an irresistible demand fur a cleansing
of the house.
Sifton, Hyman and Emmerson are
gone, but there is one left, guiltier than
any of the three, whose offences have
been more open and more flagrant. Why
he has been specially omitted from the
general condemnation it is impossible
to determine.
It is disgusting to reflect that the
carnival of Immorality lias been in progress for several years, and that the Una]
revelation of it to the people of Canada was largely accidental. It is conceivable that things might have gone
Indefinitely, as they have dune in tht
past, but thut a Conservative member,
O. W. Fowler, irritated by a wanrtm
aud intrusive attack upon his conduct
in relation to his private business.
struck back and struck with effect.
It Is not pleasant to have the knowledge forced upon us that the disgrace
ful misconduct of ministers was known
for a long time to many others besides
Mr. Fowler, that It can hardly have
been unknown to the premier, and that
by a conspiracy of silence a company
of roues and debauches has been permitted to sit in the cabinet council of
the Dominion and to direct Its administration.
But whatever was tbe shock of the
first public exposure and the implicit
confession of guilt involved in Mr. Emmerson's immediate resignation and Sir
Wilfrid Laurier's immediate acceptance
of it, the events that have followed
have created even a worse impression.
It is not now a matter of the guilt or
innocence of even half a dozen ministers of the crown. The whole liberal
party as represented in the House of
Commons is incriminated.
No sooner had Mr. Fowler hurled his
angry denunciation of the dominance
of -women, wine and graft" at his opponents across the bouse, than the press
of Canada -with one voice declared that
he had said either too much or too little and called upon aim to make, or
upon parliament to compel him to make.
a full retraction or else prove his
charges to the hilt.
The attitude of the press was correct, and, on that occasion, probably
fairly reflected the views of the great
majority of the people of Canada.
.Mr. Fowler may or may not have regretted his utterance, but be stood
rtady to face the consequences. He
recognized his responsibility in the matter and made no attempt to shirk it.
He stood ready to substantiate his
But he was not only not compelled,
he was not even permitted, to do so.
A motion for investigation was made
by Mr. Bourassa. By private arrangement with Sir Wilfrid Laurler II was
made under a rule tliat permitted no
amendment and little debate. It was
supported by every Conservative and
independent in the house. But Sir Wil-
Irid appealed successfully to the machine vote of his following to defeat it.
On .hie shoulders alone lies the responsibility for the flagrant suppression of
truth and shielding of notorious wrongdoers from public exposure.
Sir Wilfrid's judgment on the slavish
obedience of his following throughout
the country may be correct. He has
undoubtedly seen much to justify it. He
has seen men choBCn by the Liberal
party and elected, whose mora] and
mental unfltnesB for parliament are
patent to all. But he may presume too
far. The choice of candidates may not
always be left to party managers. There
is an Irreducible minimum of decency
in the rank and file of every party.
Surely in the case of Canadian Liberals thai limit has been reached at last.
The provincial government has deferred amendment to the Land Act until
next session in consideration of the appeal of lumbermen, many of whom have
contracts extending over more than a
year, which would have involved a loss
to them if tbe royalty were raised.
There will be a general npproval or the
government's course It Is never In the
pnblio Interest to injure or hamper in
any way one of the chief industries of
the country. Hut of the justice and wisdom of the purpose of the bill Ihere
can hardly be two opinions. The lumber industry is now at last on a paying
basis and has a year's notice of impending change. The province is certainly
entitled to derive a larger revenue in
the future than In the past from its
wealth in limber.
J. A, Macdonald has displayed at least
me qualification for the leadership of
a iiarty���stubbornness. Usually opposition to the principle of a bill is offered
on its second reading, opposition to details in committee. The third reading
is usually formal. Mr. Macdonald has
dt clared himself warmly in favor of
university endowment and establish-
ment. He has demonstrated his intelligence or sincerity, or both, by opposing every clause in committee and on
every reading. He has evidently mastered at least one of ihe elementary lessons of politics���that the function of an
opposition is to oppose.
The promised return of Joseph
Chamberlain to public life will be welcome news to Imperialists in all parts
of the Empire. Many illustrious men
have presided over the British Colonial
Office since it was separated from that
of Foreign Affairs, but it is no exaggeration to say that Mr. Chamberlain
has done more than all his predecessors
combined to draw together the people
of motherland and colonies. If he were
now in charge of the colonial office
there would be no fear of the Colonial
Conference being a farcical waste of
time as it is not unlikely to be under
present auspices.
Sir Thomas Shaughnessy Explains From
I    C. P. R. Point of View fn Letter
to Sir Wilfrid Laurier.
The following exlract from Sir
Thomas Siaughnessy's letter to Sir Wilfrid Laurier on llie subject of freight
traffic congestion contains the substance of Sir Thomas' defence of the
C. P. R. company'in the matter.
I do not believe there is any disposition on the part of the Canadian railway companies to deny the facts. 1
think they admit they have been unable
at times to move all the traffic offering
with a desirable degree of promptness,
because the volume at such times was
in excess of their facilities, and they
may be properly asked, "Why was this
the case, why have you not tbe requisite facilities? The shipper must depend on you and if he has goods ready
to forward it is your office and your
duty to transport them without delay."
In the present instance the railway
company calls the attention to the abnormal development that has taken
place in the country during tbe past
five years, a development that has resulted not only in a vast expansion of
the traffic to be transported but has increased a hundred fold the difficulty
about getting men and material to do
ihe work necessary to enable the railways to handle it.
Cars and locomotives were not the
only essentials. Increased crossing sidings were required bo that a greater
number of trains could be moved over
a given section each 24 hours.
Terminal yards, roundhouses, shops
and freight houses had to bB enlarged
and additional water service to be provided.   Then there was the roadbed of

WiU   Meet In   London   in  July���Confer
on Means of Aasimilating Syi-
tema of Atl Coloniea.
It is not Improbable that the colonial
conference In London will be equalled
In Importance by a Federal conference
00 education, wblch will be held In the
heart of the ICmpire In May. Thla gathering ban been arranged by the League
of the Empire, and haB for Its ultimate
purpogg the federation of tbe Brltlnta
Krapire in, and ultimately through, education. Many have been the influences
which In the past have made for Imperial
unity. Ecclesiastical organization, war,
commerce, the personal* authority
of a great man, and deliberately planned constitutional developments have
all had their share ln drawing closer
the bonds of kinship; but hitherto the
forces of education have never been
considered as a factor in the promotion
of Imperialism. .Now It appears that an
attempt is working to bring this new
force to bear.
Already some headway has been
made, the flrst experiment being an
Imperial text-book scheme. This consists of a graded series of text-books
on the Empire, wtych, in the words of
the prospectus, "should not only furnish
the youth of the Empire with first-hand
Information, but, through the financial
value of the publications, provide a fund
for the advancement of education
throughout the Empire." The author of
ihis idea is Mr. T. H. Monk, and its
financier waB the late Louis Spitzel,
who gave ��5,000 for the work. The
"history section" of tbe league has the
matter tn hand, and it is reported tbat
good progress has been made. It appears that the various colonial governments have nearly all endorsed the project, and will lend it every assistance.
The text-book scheme may be considered to have laid the foundations of an
educational  federation of the  Empire.
Says the London Times: "It is the
general approval with which this
scheme has been greeted that makes
the league anxious to go a step further.
It may be that at first it was building
better than it knew; but by this tlfe
it has caught a glimpse of the greater
design, and is beginning to plan its
operations accordingly. If the fere issue of a series of books has already
given such an Impetus to the cause of
Imperial Federation, would not a still
greater result be attained by the holding of a Federal conference, expressly
for the purpose of establishing a system
of co-operation throughout the Empire?
That is the question which the friends of

Cobalt, April 18. ���Work has been
started on the foundation of the smelter of the North American & Cobalt Refining Company at Thorold, and lt is expected that the plant will be finished in
90 days. Most of the machinery has
been ordered and as many men as are
available are being engaged in the construction. The plant will smelt 100 tons
of ore of any description a day.
Word has been received from Cobalt
that one of the three small calclte veins
which are being followed on the Big
Ben mine has widened to seven inches
at the 24-foot depth. The vein showed
a width of four inches last Saturday.
The company has 17 men employed on
the property, and a gang will be started
tienching when the snow clars away.
At present there Is three feet of snow
and ice on part of the property.
The Golden Horn Larder Lake Company is developing their vein which has
produced assays of $1,399.75 per ton of
gold. The deposits are in the form of a
dyke of gold-bearing quartz, between
walls 12 feet wide. The property Is
situated on the northern shores of
Larder lake.
Mr. M. Graham has been appointed
secretary of the Tretheway, in the place
of Mr. S. W. Black, who has retired.
A new 15-lnch vein of high-grade ore
has been opened on the Peterson Lake
mine. The vein Is eight feet from the
10 and 12 inch veins discovered last
week, and it is supposed to be verging
on the bonanza vein No. 49, near the
Nipisslng mine. It Ib said that the
Nipisslng and PeterBon Lake people are
sinking a shaft and running a development tunnel along the line, as an
economical means of proving the value
of both properties.
Superintendent La Blanc, of the Ontario-Quebec mine, stated that shaft No.
1 Is now down 50 feet and that in about
15 feet further, pure silver is expected
tto be reached ___^_____

A Cheeky Thief.
A resident of Hall Mines road has a
garden of which he is justly proud. Last
year he planted several very choice apple trees, and their remarkable growth
has been a matter that interested him

strolled around his garden, and when he
reached his apple trees he stopped to
admire their development. Yesterday
evening he took his usual stroll, but
when he came to the place where once
stood his favorite trees, he found that
some one had been there before him
and removed them. He is now looking
for the thief, and when he finds him
there will be a case of theft for the

Raise in Wages.
From May 1st the shovelers, carmen,
ore sorters, and surface men employed
at the mines of the Rossland camp are
to receive $3 per day, instead of $2.75
as heretofore. This conclusion was arrived at on Tuesday at a conference of
the managers of the leading mines.
Two weeks since the executive board of
of thc Rossland Miners' Union made a
request to the managers that the wages
of the men engaged as shovelers carmen, ore sorters and employed on the
surface, be advanced 25 cents a day.
The matter has been under consideration ever since, and on Wednesday the
managers very generously decided to
give the advance asked for.
