Emperor's Solicitude For
the Peasantry
Socialist Schemes Are Delusive and
Will Lead to Inevitable Misery
Says tlie Czar.
St. Petersburg, July 3.���The government's agrarian bill has finally been approved. Introduced in lhe lower house
ol parliament, and nlxo published In the
official Messenger^ accompanied by a
.���'lit of proclamation to the peasant*
glorifying the emptor's constant solicitude for the peasants. It attempts to
enow thai the retfjJtaUon of the socialistic schemes for iin nationalisation ol
the lands, with which the country has
been deluded, Instead of improving the
lot of the peasants, would result in In*
evltable misery. :is iin distribution of
all the arable slate lands in European
Russia would give each peasant less
than one additional deciatine, which
hud bi en subject to constant diminution
owing to increases In the population.
Besides, it would deprive the peasants
of ihe opportunity of obtaining work
irom the landlords, from whom a large
percentage of their income is derived.
As finally submitted, the government's
-so'uLion makes the following propositions:
First, to distribute upon "favorable
terms" all the arable lands in European
Russia to ihe peasants who have not
sufficient laud.
_econd, to pnrchase for the account
of ihe state iUe..aiM which private own
ers are willing to sell.
Third, to sell such land to the peasants on reasonable terms, even if this
involves the assumption by the state
oi ..o difference in the cost and the
selling price.
Fourth, to establish the principle that
new as well as old peasants' lands are
not saleable to persons not belonging
to the peasant class, besides exempting
tne laud from seizure for debt.
Fifth, to assist immigrants to reach
.-lueria and Central Asia, and to help
them in installing themselves there,
not only by allotments of land, but by
the building of government roads.
Sixth, to make arrangements for the
sale of the lands the immigrants leave
beuind them for the benefit of these
immigrants; the rigorous improvement
of agriculture, correcting the Inequalities In plots of land, and the right of
Ihe distribution of the lands severally
where desired.
'i ue statement accompanying the publication of the government's agrarian
measure gives figures to prove thai the
peasants* dream that a universal distribution would ghv ample land to all
is fallacious.

Important Decision Rendered in  Insurance Cases.
San Francisco. July 'i.���United Sfafes
Ctrcnll Judge Morrow rendered a de-
rinion yesterday morning which win he
of interest io policy holders Intending
to hrlug suit against foreign or home
Insurance companies. The mailer came
up in the argument on the demurrer of
Andrews anil llengatel In the anl's of
fhe Harneson-Ilihhanl Company vs. the
American Alliance Insurance Corpora-
Uon anil Ihe New Zealand Insurance
Company of New Zealand, and of Ihe
Ilarneson-Hilihnrd Company vs. the
London Assurance Corporation anil llle
Ocean Marine Insurance Company. The
action was to recover insurance on a
vessel lost al sea. but fhe decision may
be applied to fire insurance cases as
well. The defendants demurred to fhe
complainis. on ihe ground thai a separate suit should he hioughi against
each company for Ihe recovery of each
company's share of the loss.^ind counsel contended lhal lhe California statute allowing all the companies defendant in any loss to be made defendants
in one Bull was unconsilliillonal.
Judge Morrow, In overruling the demurrer, said lhal the law. In his opinion, wns a wise one, and lhal It iliil justice lo hoih parlies. The matter, he
added, Mis one of grave Importance to
the public al Ihis lime, and he was fully
satisfied that lhe law was constitutional.
Rival   Railway   Lines in  Conflict Ov*r
Disputed  Right of
(Special to The Daily Canadian.)
Grand Forks, July 3.���John W. Jones,
contractor of this place, hns just returned from a trip to Republic, Wash.,
and intermediate points. He says there
is considerable excitement now in Republic over the fact that the Great
Northern railway hns two survey par-
tics, comprising ^2 men, now at Republic, who will start at once to survey
the Great Northern line from Republic
to Wenatchee, Wash. They will go by
way of the San Poil valley through tho
Okanagan district. The sensational
feature about this survey is the fact
that the Greal Northern are running
their line directly over lhe previous
suney of the Kettle Valley line to a
point near the Columbia river, where
the Great Northern line will leave tho
Kettle Valley line in going to Wenatchee. It appears that from Republic
to the Columbia river, a distance of
about 30 miles, the Kettle Valley line
lailwny ran the first lines, then tho
Belcher Mining Company ran a ePfcond
line directly over the Kettle Valley
line, and now the Great Northern railway is surveying a third line right
over the two previous lines, so Unit
from Republic to the Columbia river
there will likely be endless trouble between these three roads over disputed
surveys. There are many narrow
gulches on this route, making It impossible for these roads lo prevent con-
Qlcting. It is also stated that the
Great Northern graders will follow the
survey parties up at once, and thus try
and steal a march on iheir opponents.
Word has reached here that the
Belcher Mining Company are experiencing great difficulty in operating
their new line of railway from the mfne
to the Kettle Valley track. It seems
thai this company built this railway
spur themselves, and being Inexperienced in railway work, made one of lho
curves too abrupt, In consequence of
which Ihey cannot get an engineer who
will run an engine over this piece of
tiack. This being the case, it has been
found mcessary to lift this objectionable portion of the road nnd make a new
curve, which It Is expected will he
completed and the mine resume ship
ping to the Granby smelter again by
September 1st.
Of Far Reaching Importance.
Buffalo, N. Y., July H.���Justice White,
Iii the equity term of ihe supreme courl,
yesterday rendered a decision of far-
reaching importance to the members of
the Catholic Mutual Renedt Association, The judge holds that the advance In rales adopted by th-? supreme
council at the 19113 convention held lu
Pittsburg was illegal, on the ground
that a certificate of insurance Is a contract, and the rates named In the cor-
tlllcale cannot be raised.
Thi' Judge also Issued an order directing Ihe 0, M. U. A. lo pay Io lhe plain-
tJ i In the actions, who is Michael Dow-
dell, all the moneys paid by him into
the treasury of the organization in excess of the rate paid previous to the increase.   It (s said that the decision will
be appealed.
Dowdel] sued to recover all the money paid by him In excels of the original
rate since Janii.-iry I, 1904. Justice
White also granted an order restraining the defendant from ci.llecting or
attempting to collect from the plaintiff
any rate of assessment in excess of that
paid by him previous '<> January 1, 190C
Bodies Will be Shipped Home After Religious Services.
Sa-IJsbury, England, July 3.���The bulletin iKjsied this morning at the infirmary, where those injured in the wreck
here on Sunduy morning are being
cared for. announced that Edward Sen-
tell, of Brooklyn, N. Y., had passed a
good night, but his condition is about
the same. Robert S. Critchell, of Chicago, had a restless night, hut Is very
slightly improved.
The removal of the bodies of the victims has been postponed until evening,
owing to the non-arrival of the leaden
shells. Nino; bodies will bo taken to
Southampton thiw evening and five to
London, namely, those of John E. McDonald of New York, C. F. McMeelln of
Lexington. Mrs. Lilias Hard Waits of
New York, Mrs. Charles W. Eiphicke
of Evanston, III., and Miss M. E. Howie-
son of New York. All the friends and
surviving relatives of these five victims
desire that religious services be held
in London before the bodies are shipped
to America.
It has also been arranged to bring
tue body of Frederick Henry Cossltt, of
New York city, to London temporarily.
Edward B. Tennant, member of parliament for Salisbury, has cabled lo President Roosevelt tbe sympathy of the
citizens of Salisbury with the relatives
and friends of the victims.
Government    Defeats   Hostile   Amendment by Small Majority.
London, July 3.���The discussion of
the sixth clause of the education bill,
which makes the attendance of children on elementary schools compulsory
only during the hours of secular Instruction, occupied much time in the
house of commons yesterday. The government succeeded in defeating the
hostile amendment by the small majority of 1G votes, and carried the clause
hy a majority ofo nly 47 votes. The
Irish members protested strongly
against so important a point being set
tleu by such a small majority. The
small majorities were partly due to the
government giving to the house a free
hand, with the result that about 40 Liberals, Including James Bryce, chief secretary for Ireland, and Sir Henry Fowler, chancellor of Lancaster, voted
against the bill.
Mother's   Feelings  Spared.
Tillsburg, England, July 3.���The news
of the tragedy in the Madison Square
roof garden in New York on June 25th,
when Harry K. Thaw shot and killed
Stanford White, had not been made
known to his mother, Mrs. Thaw, when
tho steamer Minneapolis, from New
York June 23rd, docked here today. Extraordinary precautions were taken on
hoard to keep any story of the tragedy
from her until relatives were able to
break the news.
Mrs. Thaw, who had heen unusually
cheerful through the voyage, was met
by her son-in-law, the Earl of Yarmouth, who came to Tillsburg to welcome her, and her face was wreathed in
smiles when she lauded. It Is expected
lhat the news will be communicated to
her while on the train bound for Loir
London, July 8.���On her arrival lu
London Mrs. Thaw was driven to lhe
residence of the Karl of Yarmouth,
wuorc the news of the tragedy at New
York was broken to her. She bore up
splendidly under the blow, but has not
decided on her future movements,

Salmon River Valley Said
to be Unequalled
Timber  Inspector   Carney  Makes
Strong Statement as to Fertility of Large Tract.
Just as the available ranch land
along the shores of the lakes and rivers
of Kootenay has risen in value beyona
Ihe means of poor men to acquire It,
comes an authoritative announcement
ihat within 25 miles of Nelson by rail
Is a fertile valley with an excellent climate���that was already known���and
with a soil whose fertility has not been
suspected hy the general public, nor
even by the timber cruisers and prospectors who have travelled through It
for years.
The valley of the main Salmon river
Is 15 miles long and one mile wide, or,
counting the sloping land on either side,
about two miles in width, giving an
area of nearly 2(1.000 acres of potentially rich farming land.
There are already a few settlers In
the valley who are raiBlng grain, vegetables and fruit, but roads are poor,
their attempts at marketing have not
been very successful, and little attention has so far been paid to their claim
of having the best land In the district.
A. Carney, timber inspector of Southeast Kootenay, has visited the valley
at the requeBl of the district government agent, R. A. Renwlck, to decide
whether certain pre-emptions In the
valley should be classified as timber
land or not. He has decided that It
should not be so described, but an addition to his report will prove more interesting than the report itself.
Seen this morning by a representative of Tbe Daily Canadian, Mr. Carney
"It is certainly not timber land; there
is not more than enough timber on It
for fencing. Btit as agricultural land, I
have never seen anything superior to It
In my life.
"I was positively amazed to find such
land so near Nelson and unknown. I
can only attribute It to the fact that
lack of roads has made ranching in the
valley unprofitable so far, and has retarded Its development.
"The valley runs almost straight
south from Salmo for 15 miles. It Is a
mile wide on the average, and the two
slopes would add at least another mile.
You can easily calculate the area.
"Although the only object of my visit
was to make a ruling as to timber land,
I -ave taken the liberty to add to my
report a recommendation that a road be
built. 1 think that an expenditure of
between ��S00 and ��1,000 would bring
Immense returns to the government In
revenue from Ihe land, and I don't
know any possible Investment of public
money wiser than the encouragement
of actual settlement upon the land.
"The pioneers of that valley are to
lie congratulated, and, in my opinion,
they deserve in their own interest and
that of Ihe province generally every
encouragement that can be given to
New Coal  Classification.
Washington, July 11.���It Is nol generally known thai two main groups of
30ftl below Ihe grade nf bituminous are
recognised In this country, nntl thut officials of llle United Slates geological
survey have recently adopted mimes to
iIIkiIiikiiIhIi them. In ninny or the coal
Holds of the wesl there nre large deposits of SO-ealled black lignite, which Is
somewhat interior lo bituminous coal
lu three Importanl respects, it has
lower ealoiitlc value: It Is lighter In
Weight, so that In a forced draft a
large percentage Is thrown out of the
smokestack iincoiisumeil, and It breaks
down or "slacks" very easily when exposed to the atmosphere
The Dame "sub-bituminous" Is applied
to the class next higher. It Is commonly known u lignite, lignite coal, black
llgnlie, brown coal, etc. It is generally
blank and shining, closely resembling
bituminous coal, but it weathers more
rapidly on exposure and lacks lhe prismatic structure, which Is such a characteristic feature of bituminous coal. Its
calorific value Is generally less than
that of bituminous coal and greater
than that of lignite^

When vision Is Impaired, it distorts

their part, or when, hy habit, the mind
has become prejudiced, and tho ordlna

when be came to Nelson. It asked him
to account for his action In Boveral in

Washington, July 3.���Sir Henry Mortimer Durand, the British ambassador,
left Washington today for Lenox,
Mass. where he will be with his family
mosl of tho summer.
Before leaving Washington the ambassador had.a long conference with
Secretary of State Root eoncerning Anglo-American affairs. He expects to
visit Canada Ihis summer, and it is believed that when Secretary Root and
the ambassador return to Washington
In the fall they will be able to frame
satisfactory treaties for the adjustment
of ihe boundary and fishing disputes
between the United States and Canada
