Jabez Balfour, Famous Embezzler, Haa
Written Account of His Life
aa a Convict.
Jabez Halfour. who recently completed a term of 14 years' imprisonment for
fraud in connection with the Liberator
Societies, has written a book, in which
he freely criticizes Ihe prison system.
Here are a few extracts:
The Hritish prison system would
seem, in many of its details, to have
been devised by some malignant genius,
actuated by the horrible ambition of
de Sade, "to leave the world a little
worse than he had found it," to crush
out of the heart of any unhappy criminal any lingering remnant of self-respect,
any feeble hope o' self-redemption,
which may have -survived his public
degredatlon in the criminal court.
On three separate occasions Mr.
Balfour was taken on long railway
journeys, clad In prison clothes and
handcuffed. "I bave found along my
route groups of curious sightseers,
who had evidently been apprised of my
movements ... On Cowes Pier waa
the Inevitable photographer, and quite
a throng of busybodiea, through whom I
had to elbow my way. At Southampton
there was a mob of very Ill-behaved females.*' The handcuffing, as be polnta
out, was a purely superflous degradation. On each occasion he waa accompanied by two armed wardera. What
occasion could there be to fetter an
elderly obese man so guarded and ao
As to the Bpedea of bodily search
known aa "the dry bath," of which Mr.
Halfour speaks In carefully-veiled
phrases, it was obviously an Indignity
which might have been resented by a
nigger in the days of chattel slavery���
"a degradation to the unhappy prisoner
and nn outrage on Ihe reluctant warder
���grossly revolting nnd Indecent."
The amount of power Invested In
warders and other petty officials is another blot on our prison system. Only
a man of high and humane nature���and
such men are Icbs rare phenomena than
mlghl be supposed��� could withstand lhe
Inflnate temptations to petty tyrany furnished by the discipline of such a prison
as Portland. Mr. Balfour was warned
by a kindly chaplain:���"Be very careful
of the warders. You are wholly In their
How wholly, such Incidents aa tbe fol.
lowing may serve to ahow:
"A well-conducted youth, who was
wBlklng Immediately before me, halted
and stooped down lo fasten his shoelace. He was Immediately pounced upon by Ihe warder, who shouted, 'You
arc not to atop: you are not to pick up
anything: you are not to stoop: you ure
not to look anywhere unless I give you
leave.' I myself waa twice reproved by
this ruffian for looking up at the sky!
"Once u prisoner, in passing me smiled . . The warder saw. and was
swift to shout Now, then. Halfour, smiling is not allowed here.' He need hardly havo lold us that."
Humor creeps Into everything���even
Into a prison. Here Is a quaint experience: "One morning I had heard a
tremendous disturbance in one of tha
cells above mine. I asked the warder
what tho disturbance was about, and be
ealmly replied, 'Oh, Its nothing; It Is
only a fellow who has done his lime and
doesn't want to go.'"

Oitawa. March 23.���On Tuesday Mr.
Fielding stated that be had no more
tariff changes to propose and tbe committee of ways and means handed In
what is now supposed to be its final
report. The finance minister announced
when the house mel that be expected
to have his tariff revision measure finished and done with before the Christmas vacation. He was a long way out
ln bia reckoning. But the delay baa
I), en all his own fault for the time has
been mostly occupied by the ministers
revising their own revision. After
Christmas the minister brought in
about a hundred amendments to his
own bill and since then he has made
numerous amendments to these amendments. It was only this week thst Mr.
Fielding himself knew all tbe details
of his final measure.
On the last da> of discussion a singular circumstance waa revealed. Mr.
Boyce, of Algoma, called attention to the
fact that some 80 boot and shoe manufacturers had asked for additions-] protection. When they began pressing for
these changes the Tanners' Association
worked with them, but ln the later
Biases the boot and shoe people were
left to fight It out alone. In tbe end
the tanners got an Increased duty on
all aole leather, though ln the flrat draft
of the tariff bill they were allowed
much less. The boot and aboe manufacturers got an Increase on certain
classes, but not on the bulk of their
product and they claim that tbe Increased duty on leather leaves them ln
a worBe position than they were before.
Now in the discussion there waa produced the combine agreement of the
Tannera' Association, which compe's all
purchasers, ln consideration of certain
rebates, to make a solemn declaration
that they will only buy from the tanners within the combine. On several
occaatons Dr. Sproule has produced this
evidence in the hotise, and lt ls shown
that formal representations had been
made to the government as required by
statute against combine and that the
government took no action.
It is shown that on aeveral occasions
while the tanners and the boot and
Bhoe makers were working together for
an Increase of duty, a prominent member of the 'Tanners' Combine referred
to the great Influence that their association had with tbe government by reason of the fact that one of their members was in Sir Wilfrid's cabinet. Of
the seven firms maintaining tbe tanners' combine that of C. S. Hyman &
Company was one of the largest, and
It now appears that this combine not
only escaped the law, but that its members have been specially favored In the
tariff revision. Mr. Borden pointed out
that the government took no nelion
against this illegal combination when
complaint was made. He added: "and
although tbe facts were admittedly
brought before the governor In council,
the governor in council took no anion
except the one action and that was to
take Into the cabinet, Into the privy
council, Into thla administration, a
member of this very combine against
whom this complaint has heen made."
The public account committee has
been struggling with the bill for 250
sub-target machines delivered to the
government, and about the same number now under contract. The cost ls
$250 for each machine which is an arrangement used for purposes of instruction in rifle shooting. It ls understood
some 2,000 of thes'i machines will be
furnished at a cost of half a million
dollars. Mr. Jewell, of Toronto, secured
the right for Canada. According to the
evidence of the manager, the contract
ing company paid Jewell $53,000 rash
aud $500,000 In stock for his right. This
stock, with only $4,500 paid up In cash,
Is the total capital of the company. The
Interesting feature of the case Is the
Tact that Mr. Jewell distributed the
$500,000 shares among various persons
In lots of $25,000 and $60,000. These
Included certain militia officers and politicians. Sharea also passed Into the
handB of officers In the militia depart
ment. And the holders of these shares
are among those who recommended the
purchase. An attempt was made by
members of the committee to find out
what waa paid for these shares and
what transfers took place. But when
the Inquiry In thla direction began tn
grow interesting, government Bupporters raised objections, the minister of
railways  leading  In  the enterprise of
suppressing ..the facts, and the chairman ruled out the questions. One of .
friend of the minister of i.illltla. It
came out that the cost of in inufactur-
ing the machines was $64 .aeh. and
the $25,000 stockholders, who haa
transferred hla shares, la Mr. Wickwlre,
ex-M. P. P., of Kentville, N. :}.. a close
tbe company baa alreacy ma *,e enough
to pay for the patent and all preliminary expenses as well aa for tlie cost of
production. Hereafter they will apparently have at least $150 profit on each
machine, and as they have farms-id out
the work of making them tliere is a
fine product ahead.

An Explanation.
Early in March an article appeared
In the Cranbrook Herald containing a
report that Rev. Dr. Kilpatrlck, who is
well known throughout Kootenay, in addressing an audience in Toronto, had
referred to Cranbrook in very disparaging terms. The article waa mentioned
at the time tn The Daily Canadian, and
a friend of Dr. Kilpatrlck's -sent him a
marked copy. A reply haa now been
received from the doctor ln which he
denies having used any expressions offensive to Cranbrook, and stating that
on the contrary he enjoyed hie visit
there very much and haa kindly memories of hospitable entertainment. Dr.
Kilpatrlck haa also written Tlie Herald
to the aame efjoet.

Easter Eve���Baptlalmal aervlce.
The week in mining has seen a revival of activity among some of the
prospectors whose claims bave become
accessible, and records of locations and
assessment work are again pouring in
to the mining offlce.
The one thing now dreaded by mine
and smelter managers ls a strike in the
coal fields of East Kootenay and Alberta, which would probably force a
general shut down.
Out side capital, mostly American, is
offering for development of properties
in Lardeau and Sheep Creek districts.
The stock market for the post week
has shown a slight improvement both
as regards activity and higher prices.
Eastern exchanges report business a
little more brisk, as does the Spokane

price ia very low. California la offered

Mines Is in no demand, la not offered
and la practically off the market. Diamond Vale Coal weakened aud ls now

Dominion Copper, like otber curb securities, was quoted very low at the
opening, but advanced slightly and was
much stronger at the close. Giant was
in demand with but little atock offered
at tbe present low quotation. International Coal was very weak, with almost
no buBlness recorded. Nicola Coal
Mines In consequence of the lack of
business waa removed from the Spokane exchange, and attracted no attention whatever. Sullivan dropped a point
or ao, with no demand.
White Bear was perhaps the feature
of the week's trading, being the most
active and strongest of any of the
stocks on this market. This condition,
It is rumored, is due to the mine commencing shipments in the near future.

Blasts are fired by electricity in many
mlnea, but where timbers are neBcssar-
lly carried close to the bottom of the
shaft as sinking progresses, firing by
battery creates too great a concussion,
and aa a result timbers are torn out or
broken, which greatly Increases the expense of sinking. Numerous attempts
have made to manufacture an electric
fuse which would explode the shots In
aeries, but the sceme has, aa far as
known, proved unsatisfactory. Even lf
a "delay fuse" ub they, are called, be
found to act as deaired, the probability

Railway   Commiealon   Review   Freight
Queation-*���Ask Companies ta
Shew Cauae.
(Special to Th* Dally Canadian.)
Ottawa, March 23.���The board of
railway commissioners held a sitting today for the consideration of the queation of requiring the paaaenger rates
on the C. P. R. company and the G. T.
R. company in the provtncee of Ontario
and -Quebec to be reduced. Mr. Wain-
right, general aaaistant and -comptroller,
and Mr. Dnvls.Tllsenger traffic manager of the G. T. R. company, represented the latter company. Thla queation waa taken up with theae two railway companiea aome montha ago, sand
atatementa were promised to be furnished by the companiea Ior tke purpoae
of Justifying the ratea in force, but
theae statements have not been furnished. A short time ago the Kingston
board of trade laid before the board a
complaint respecting the -ratea on the
G. T. P. railway eaat of Toronto and
se-reral municipal corporations have
alao recently paaaed resolutions -condemning the paaaenger ratea on tbe
aame line. The matter haa been the
subject of correspondence between the
board and the railway companies and
no satisfactory answer haa, ln the
opinion of tbe board, been furnished to
the proposition that the ratea should
be reduced to three cents per mile.
After hearing the representatives of
tbe railway companiea lt waa decided
that the rate should be reduced to
three cents per mile. Aa the board had
previously received from the provinces
of Saskatchewan and Alberta complaint against the charging of paaaenger ratea in these provinces exceeding
the rate prevailing ln eaatern Canada,
it waa auggested that theae should be
considered at the same time with the
other applications and the reault haa
boen that the rates have been reduced
in theae provinces aa well to tbree
cents per mile on the line of the Canadian Pacific eaat of and including the
Calgary and Edmonton railway.
Sixty days have been allowed for
putting the new rates In forces aa considerable time must necessarily be
taken ln preparing, and printing the
new tariffs and distributing them to all
Ihe polnta effected. The board proposes
Immediately notifying the railroad companies of thla action and to requeat
them to Inform the board whether they
are willing to similarly reduce their
ratea, and If not to Inform the boards
of the grounds upon which they object
to doing so.

A movement has been going on for j
S"me  time throughout  Canada and  in '
many of the northern states in  favor
cf improving the financial  position of
the teaching profession.
It was time. The average remuneration of teachers compared with that of
unskilled laboren was a disgrace to
any ;��e.p:<j protendlag to civilization.
The novetMDJ began in Ontario

Hut it ie In danger of being over
li.ok��'d. that the mere paying of ullghtly
h gh"r salaries to uachers Is not nee

eially. The only real test Is Its pur-
obanlng power. Sow it i* acknowledged
that \h * coal of living is steadily In-

raiHe their salnrles or fees.
There are two slaaaaa that have no
power to do ho, the clergy and tench-
���frt. Only a -striking disparity to which
���public u'teiitlon Is repeatedly called
raises the stutUB of these two classes,
wlilcb  iue the worst  jiuld  In  Canada,
when the long and expensive preparation fs takf-n into consideration.
This conditions is an almost inevitable resul: of the exclusive devotion of
a whole tAople to the pursuit of material wealth. In Canada it is u.Knifie��?
by the nanit* of developing the country
But it is only vulgar greed become thc
national religion. Not until a jn?opIe

true position as a humble means to welfare, and learned to prize learning, wisdom and art. is any respect paid :o call
ings not directly wealth producing
such as those of the minister and the
teacher. In fact, the statu-, nf elerej
and t*aehers in any country is a fair
criterion of its progres.- in tbe pati
of civilization.
So unnecessary delay should be per
mltt-d in passing a loan by-lay to raist
money for building a new public school
There will be no opposition at the coun
cil board and little, lf h.i>. from tbe
property owners The present rude
p:le of buildings, dignified by the nam*
nf the central school, if an eyesore In
the centre of the city. It is as unsani
tary as unsightly, and tbe cost of heat
ing in winter is excessivp on account ol
its construction. Three of the classes
arc now quartered in Isolated rooms
two of them utterly unsuited for th*
purpose and one without any play
ground for the children. Viewed mere
ly as a commercial undertaking a new
and modern school building will h<
worth many times the cost of construe

Mr. Helliwell, of Vancouver, hai
evolved a tchenie for meeting the pro
vinclal debt and relieving the annual
badge! or an expenditure of about |600,<
000. The suggestion bus not been welcomed with any enthusiasm by the fl
tmnce minister, Capt. Tatlow. Th. re
Ih no need for hysterics now about Hritish Columbia's finances. The annual
revenue Is now found equal to the burden of annual expenditure, interest on
the public debts, and the provision of
a sinking fund for their redemption
Tlie ordinary means of a sinking fund
bus generally been found sufficient pro

without any special effort, v- to Mr
Helliwell's Bpedflc suggestion, that
5.000 acres of suburban property ou
Point Gray be sold now on a M';tem of
deferred payments, strikes us :.�� peculi.
arly inept. With Vancou\e: growing
at its preaent rate, tbe lots in question
will be worth at \aaai tea times the
sum suggested in lea than M years. It
would be rery poor buaineaa policy to
sell so rich an asset at K wild a sacri-
ho���and for what purpoae? To make
sure that our ordinary sinking fund will
not disappear by some miracle and
leave us. Sti or W years hence, unable
to meet a trilling debt of 11 ,000.
The brief telegraphic report in yes-
terday's issue of the trial, conviction
and tt otence of the murderer ol William Whltely, is in striking contrast to
the interminable Thaw trial. In each
case the crime was murder, in each
case it was committed openly and the
murderer was apprehended at once. But
the English criminal has been tried and
sentenced within a fortnight of the committing of the crime, and will be
hanged within a month. The American
has already enjoyed the centre of the
national stage for many months, will
continue to do so for many months
more and is unlikely to ever pay any
penalty. British courts are not afflicted
with paranoia, brainstorm or any other
form of imbecility.
At Monday evening's meeting of the
council, it may be presumed, there wil!
be further reports on the street cars,
street lighting and tramway extensions.
The first two are certain to be reports
of progress. Since the last meeting tlie
car has been overhauled and much improved, and the street lighting has been
extended. The city engineer's report
oa the feasibility of constructing a belt
lin�� for the tramway will be received
with interest. Probably more than
three-fourth- of the residents of Nelson
rtside east of Stanley sir et. and receive little or no benefit fr< m the present rou;e. If a belt line can be constructed and operated without loss the
sooner it is begun the better.

Th premier's reply to J. A Macdonald's question as to special relief from
financial burdens is what should have
been expected, Roaatand has no legal
right to any share of the two per cent,
tax or any other provincial tax. But
Roaaland. la burdened with debt contracted by the folly and incapacity of
its early councils. The present popula-
t.on is paying for extravagances of
which the majority are guiltless, lt
would not be for the public good to allow a city to become incapable of maintaining its schools and other public institutions, and there will be no com-
i!_,int from any other city if special
��.ouaideration is shown to Rossland.
The idea is gaining ground that the
cities of British Columbia were all ill
advistd in following the cities of Washington in naming their associations
There is something cheap and vulgar
in the names. "20.000 club." "150.000
club" and so, 'Tourist association'

English judge for a remedy against tbe

she had never In her life been In un

MIhs Mllar's troubles are nothing compared with her own. Miss May hus
seen a postcard representing her as

send these dreadful things to me and
ask me to sign them."
Lapsing ihen into the remlnscent

fallen In love with at all. Edna May's
particular apathy ls the man who threatens suicide as the appropriate remedy
for a broken heart. She says she gets
one of these about every two weeks.
and the duty of saving lives is a serious
burden upon her. She had a humorous
dreBser who used to Inform her that
there was "another suicide on the mat."

Frozen nitro powder, though unsatisfactory as a blasting agent is dangerous. It should never be thawed by direct application to the heat of a flre,

A poor prospect, no matter how disappointing, always justifies further development lf It shows improvement in

Large circular shafts were sunk In
France und Belgium fn the late sixties,
by means of a heavy drill having a
number of bits arranged so as to cut an
annular hole. These drills were caled
trepans, and weighed as much as fifteen
tons. The shafts were lined with Iron
tubing, as the sinking progres-sea.
Single engines, though frequently
used in operating hoists, are not nearly
as convenient or safe as double-cylinder
machines. The latter admit a more uniform application of power at every part
of the revolution, and do not "center,"
which is au extremely dangerous thing
sometimes occurring with single cylinder engines.
Many volcanic rocks contain gold and
silver ores as well as those of lead,
copper and zinc. The. most imjK>rtant
of these rocks are andeslte. rhyolite and
some other trachytic rucks. Basali Ib
seldom lf ever gold-bearing though in
the Cripple Crek district of Colorado
are a number of dark much altered
basic dikes commonly referred to there
as basalt.
The number of holes required io
break the full face of a drift depends
entirely on the hardness and general
character of the ground. Some hard
rock having abundant seams and jointing planes will break much more readily than softer ground having few such
Beams. The miner learns by experience
how many holes are required and where
to place them to best advantage.
Ore should be crushed no finer than
necessary to free the mineral contained,
whether It be gold or sulphides of tbe
base metals. Some ore slimes readily
and usually efforts are made to prevent
sliming as far as possible, but ln some
Instances slimes are purposely produced
In order that the extremely fine gold
may be recovered. Magnesian ores
slime more readily than the purely
quartzose ores. When concentration Is
to follow crushing sliming Is to be
avoided aB far as possible.
