Recent      Railway     Legislation      Causes
Heavy  Loss of   Revenue  and  Increased Expense.
New York. March 7.���Recent federal
and Btato legislation was assigned as
one of the prlnNjial causes of the October linanclai panic In the aunual re-
jiort of James McCrea of the Pennsylvania Itailroad company to the stockholders of the company which was
made public today, lie said tho check
to general business which came with
tho financial disturbance already has
resulted ln largely affecting tlie revenues of the system and that this condition may be expected to continue until
all the questions ut issue have been
fairly adjusted. He add: "Hut in tho
meantime the railroads have to face
the loss of revenue consequent u[>on
the enforced idleness of a large portion
of their equipment, while to a proportionate number of their employees this
necessarily brought about either entire
loss of employment or very material reduction  In their hours of labor."
The report says that the lower passenger faros have not stimulated traffic
to the extent necessary to offset the
loss of revenue and the higher cost of
operation duo to Increase in wages and
cost of supplies.
The report shows that of the total
expended to date on the New York
tunnel extension. $30,000,000 was charged off from time to time against tlie
company's protlt and loss account. The
report also says It Is expected tht*

In 1910. Tho company's net income for

British Opinion of Kaiser
and Tweedmouth
Meanwhile Wilhelm jViews Launch
of First German Battleship of
Dreadnought Gass.
1-ondon. March 7.���As a result of the
official explanations that are given here
and at berlin of tbe Emperor William
and Tweedmouth correspondence, the
opinion is expressed by the majority ot
tho morning newspapers tbat the Times
lias discovered a "mare's nest" or at
least has unnecessarily magnified the Importance of the affair. Pending Lord
Tweedmouth's promised statement on
Monday next, however, decided comments are withheld.
While all the newspapers agree as to
the advisability of publishing the correspondence. If the Emperor's consent
is obtained, ln order to clear up all
suspicions, it is considered impossible
that either house of parliament could
cull for its publication as such action
would amount to an insult to the Emperor.
That both Emperor William and Lord
Tweedmouth have been guilty of a serious Indiscretion there is but one opinion, und even newspapers friendly to
the government remind Lord Tweedmouth that it wus his duty to submit
such a communication to the cabinet.
Ijord Tweedmouth is seriously taken to
tusk for allowing the contents of the
letter to be known.
The Chronicle, editorially hopes that
the unfortunate series of indiscretions
may lead to resolutions by Germany
and England to arrest new naval construction, In which both countries
would have an equal  reason to rejoice.
The Daily Chronicle says it is able to
Btate thut Lord Tweedmouth communicated tlie Emperor's letter to the King
and to the foreign office, before sending
a reply to it. The Chronicle adds that
the Emperor's letter besides depreciating comments on the German naval policy, mentioned that Germany's chief object was lo substitute new Bhlps for old
ones, and to protect Germany's oversea commerce.
No further light upon the subject of
Emperor William's letter, in which it
wus charged Ills Majesty made an attempt to Inlluence legislation on the
ltrltish naval estimates, is expected
until Lord Tweedmouth makes his promised statement ou the occurrence In the
House of Lords next Monday. There
Is great curiosity as to whether or not
tho First Lord or the Admiralty will
read what Emperor William wrote.
Even if the substance of the letter is
itioffonsive, the lnnguage may be so informal that the Emperor would prefer
that It ho not spread before tho eyos
of tlie people at large.
Wllbelmshavon, March 7.���The first
niauiinoih warship of the German navy
was suoooasfully launched here today
and christened Nassau by the Duke
and Duchess of Baden. Emperor William, tho Grand Duke of linden, Prince
Henry of Prussia, and Prince Honry of
the Netherlands, us well as a brilliant
assemblage of prominent officials were
The launch of the great battleship
Nassu inaugurates a new era ln tho
German navy. She Is the first of tho
mammoth vessels of which the active
squadron In future Is to be composed,
and la In size, armament, speed and Installation superior to any warchlp hitherto built in Germnny. The Nassau displaces 17,960 tons, and Is built entirely
ol' steel. Her dimensions nnd her thickness or armor aro not exactly known,
as everything connected with the const ruction has been kept secret by order
of the marine minister. It is known.
over, that she Is to be filled with three
Bets of triple expansion reciprocating
engines, and Is to be provided with three
propellers. The minimum speed Bhe Is
expected to attain is 19 knots. Her
crew Is to number 966, including o;cers.
The Nnssu's first keel plate was laid
down ln the Imperial navy year ln the
last quarter of 1906, so that the construction has been rapid. Her Internal
linings and armament are to be com
pleted in the first quarter ot 1909. The
cost of construction, including trial
guns, will total $i��,l��o,ooo, of which sum
$5,667,600 are accounted for by the bull
and Internal fittings, $3,375,000 for artillery, and $247,500 for torpedoes.
A twin ship ln every respect, tlie
Sachsen, Is to be launched from the
waterways at Bremerhaven in a very-
short time, while work Is proceeding
rapidly on the Wurtemberg at the Val-
can yard.
Emperor William made no speech at
the launching except to propose the
health of bis royal guests at the lunch-'
eon following the ceremony.
Tbe Nassau's radius of action at a speed
of ten knots is 6,000 nines. This Indicates that the vessel is designed for
use ln borne waters. Although the new
battleship was rormaily laid down in
July, 1907, this date hardly represents
correctly the speed of the Germans In
shipbuilding, because several months
had been spent previous to tbe laying
of the keel in gathering material. The
battleship will be ready to go to sea by
tbe end of 1909.
Empire  State   Republicans  Prepare  for
Campaign���Young   Men   Are
in Control.
New York, March 7.���The meeting of
the Republican state committee ln this
city today marks tlie real opening of
the presidential campaign in the Empire State. Pursuant to the call of tbe
chairman, Timothy L. Woodruff, the
committee went into session behind
closed doors this afternoon to decide
upon tbe time and place for holding
the state convention. The state convention, in addition to naming four delegates at-large to the national convention, will choose a new state committee
which will conduct the fall compaign.
Now that the general assembly or
Albany is Hearing the close of its session there is nothing to prevent an early-
convention the second week of April.
The convention will probably be held
ln this city. The primaries to elect
delegates to the assembly district conventions for the purpose of sending
delegates to the state convention, which
in turn is to elect tbe delegates-at-large,
are by law to be held the last Tuesday
of March, which this year will be March
31. The same primaries will elect delegates to the congress district conventions.
The congress districts are autonomous when It comes to choosing delegates, so tbat the state convention will
not be able to Instruct more than four
delegates-at-large. Whether or not the
delegates will be instructed is said to
rest entirely with Governor Hughes. If
tbe governor and his friends want them
instructed they will undoubtedly be sent
to Chicago pledged to vote for Hughes
for the presidential nomination.
The meeting of the state committee
bas naturally given rise to,much gossip
concerning the probable make-up of the
"big four," and other matters pertaining to Republican politics In New York.
The candidacy of Hughes for the presidential nomination seems to be about
the only poln on which tht rival tactions
are able to agree. On all other matters
the rival factions are determined to
tight it out to the bitter end. Chairman
Woodruff and his friends, who are In
close touch with President Roosevelt,
declare there will he no compromise
with the Odell-Black-liracketl cumin
gent. If they uro able to control the
convention neither Odell, Black nor
Brackotl will be among the four delegates-at-large to the Chicago convention.
If their plans go through. Chairman
Woodruff aud Secretary Root will be
two of the "big four." The other two
huve not been decided upon, though
Cortelyou, President Schurman of Cornell University and ex-Mayor Seth Low
are being considered.
It seems to be accepted as a foregone
conclusion that The two national convention veterans, Senators Piatt and
Depew, are to be left outside the breastworks. While the ten or a dozen mon
who control the Republican organization
In New York are chary abot oxpures-
slng themselves plainly In the matter,
they have allowed the Impression to become current that neither of the Senators is likely to go to Chicago as delegates-at-large.
The explanation Is that a new political generation Is in control of the
Btate. a new page has been turned, and
many "old familiar faces" will not be
seen as often as formerly ln high places
In Republican national conventions.

this courtesy, one of the special policemen who helped Miss Vanderbllt and
the count to get a license without delay,
received a beautiful set of amethyst

to wait their turn ln line, and life Is
made miserable for them by a crowd of
Instalment sharks, who try to sell them
the bride's bouquet or wedding ring, or
offer to fit out their new home from cellar to garret with everything from a

Saturday,  March 7,  1908.
Possibly the dcluy of the government
in replying to the request of those interested in lead mining in Kootenay for
a conUnuatlon of the bounty on that
product, is unavoidable. The delay and
consequent uncertainty is having a
most unfortuuafe effect not ouly upon
the Industry as established but upon
all negotiations looking to the development (if new properties.
There are, we understand, minor differences of opinion as to the conditions
on which such a subsidy should be
granted but there la absolute unanimity
as to the necessity of Its being rauted
If the operation of the big deposits of
low grade ore is to be premanently
The request, formulated first by some
or Uie owners and managers of silver-
lead mines, has been endorsed by tlie
Nelson board of trade, by the associated boards of trade of the Interior
of liritish Columbia, by the Conservative Association of Nelson, and last by
the members of the Canadian Mining
Institute In  annual meeting in  Ottawa.
It is true that when the bounty was
granted five years ago, the government,
or rather some of the members, wished
it to bo understood that the assistance
was only temporary. The applicants for
the bounty, however, declined to accept
the condition or at least lo formally assent to It. They pointed out that tlie
conditions really Justified a protective
tariff. The American trust, protected
liy a high import duty, and with an absolute monopoly within the United
States, succeeds In keeping Its price 40
per cent higher than the London price.
They could have competed in the Canadian market with the home produce���
and practically rendered their operation Impossible.
At  that  time  the  Dominion  govern
ment was stPl in theory a "Free Trade"
administration, and could not consistently consider a proposal to impose a
new import duty. It was in recognition
of the fact that protection by tariff was
unattainable that the applicants submitted the alternative proposal for a
bounty. To this the ministers could find
no reason to object. It was conceded,
indeed it was obvious that the producers
of lead were bearing all the burdens of
protection .*nd receiving practically
none of its benefits. Their operations
were of benefit to the whole of Kootenay and Indirectly to Alberta, Saskatchewan und Manitoba, and without protection either by tariff or bounty their
operations  could  not  continue.
It Is true that of the total sum made
available for such assistance, $2,500,000,
a Utile less than a quarter has been
earned by the producers. The total
cost of tbe grant lo the Dominion
treasury for the Ave year period for
which II wus made, will be only a little
more than (800,000.   It might be argued
that as u stimuiu. to the mining Industry, the bounty bas been a disappointment. Hut it must be remembered
that Kootenay has had, and still hus,
many dilllcuities to contend with apart
from low prices and the competition of
highly protected rival producers. Without the bounty the lead mining Industry
would have disuppcurcd altogether. The
bounty has enabled it to survive and to
iiiiike steady and substantial, If somewhat slow, progress. The continuation
of lhat assistance is imperatively needed, and Its advocacy should not be neglected by any whose Interests are affected.

been added to New York's police force.
Recently the wealthy section of Fifth
avenue has been the centre of attack,
but in spite of extra precautions thefts
have been committed right under the
noses of policemen. The recent Innovations in the system have been the
plating of police dogs in some of the
ou'lying sections of Brooklyn and the
establishment of a language school for
detectives that might learn French, German or Italian. So far there have been
ten volimteeas who attend the language
school for an hour four times a week.
When they have learned their language
they will help out in Interpreting and
work on cases involving foreigners. The
suggestion of police dogs came from
Belgium, while the language school was
an idea that has been worked out in
Paris. Iu the meantime Gothamites are
locking up their silver and valuables
every night, for neither the language
school or the police dogs seem to afford them sufficient protection against
the plain ordinary burglar who opens
the back window with a jimmy, helps
himself and gets away unmolested.

The   Meaning   and   Purpose   of   Lenten
Abstinence   and   Devotion���
Church Services.
Tomorrow will be tbe first Sunday in
Lent. No holy tfaya occur during the
following week. The gospel for the day
is St. Matthew's account of the Tasting and temptation of Christ in the
wilderness. Where the evangelist learned the story, whether from the lips of
Chiist Himself, or others, is not told.
If told by Christ Himself, it Is still not
revealed how much Is recital of fact
and how much is allegory. But it is
certain that Christ withdrew for a
Hpace from the life of the world around
Him, and retired Into solitude to fast
and pray and commune with His Fa-
institution of Lent preserved ever since
by the church as a special season of
self-denial   and   devotion.
The childish forms that Lenten observance sometimes takes, of abstinence from unregarded trifles, of refraining from public gaiety while pursuing
frivolous pleasures in private, may provoke a smile, but yet they involve a
conception and an Interpretation of life
and duty which are peculiar to Christianity.
The Christian ideal is a life of which
no hour is wasted or misspent but all
devoted to praise of and communion
with God. It differs little from the
highest Greek conception, Aristotle's,
that the only purpose of labor was to secure the means for contemplation of
the nature of God.
But the Imperfections of social and
industrial organization render that idea)
unattainable by all but a few. Too much
of modern living is perforce spent in
struggle for the means. The tenseness
of that struggle Is relieved by the pleasures of social intercourse ln which
ther. Upon that fact Is founded the
quiet contemplation finds little place.
In Advent and in Lent the church
calls on its members to gorego such
pleasures���si nee they cannot forego
their labors���to set apart a little time
for the meditation for which life leaves
so little leisure. The abstinence from
pleasures is not enjoined with the view
of mortifying the flesh to purify the
spirit but partly as a discipline to desire and partly as a means to secure
time for devotion and communion with
God, upon which spiritual life depends,

murder of his roommate, Walter P. Dol-
sen, more than two years ago. The
convicted man, who is not yet thirty
years old, seems resigned to his fate
and is said to have made a full confession  of his  crime.
Both tho murderer and his victim
were marines iu the United States service and had been discharged a short
time previous to the crime. The two
young men became friends and together they secured lodgings in an
East Main street lodging-house In this
city. Thurman wus practically penniless, while Dolsen had about $400,
which he had saved from his pay in the
marine  corps.
While Dolsen slept one night Thurman chopped the defenceless man to
pieces with an axe, robbed him, packed the body in a trunk and tied a ta^
on It ready for shipment to Kden tun.
IN*. C. The crime was discovered almost immediatily, but not before Thurman had eluded the police and left
the city. lie went south, and after
wandering across the continent, he finally located in Vancouver, B. C,
where he was captured. The passing of
bad checks, which was an old practice
of his. proved his uudoing. He was
arrested as a result of a check transaction, and when taken to police
headquarters in Vancouver a detective
with a good memory for faces recognized in the prisoner the man who was
Wanted In this city for murder. Thur-
mnn, after tho murder of Dolsen. had
travelled under the name of Gould. The
pjlice of this city verified the description of the prisoner, and a hat which
he wore bearing the name of a Norfolk hatter completed the identification.
Detectives of the Norfolk department
were at once sent to British Columbia
to bring back the prisoner. A trip of

A speedy trial with a verdict of murder ln tho ttrst degree and the last

a few minutes, however, to arrive at
