Liberals are making much of an

have   been    called    together
Ifaroh 7th. The facts of the matter
lint when It was decided that the'
: house should be called together on
Jch 7th, notices were prepared ac-
flngly   and   were sent  out to the
iliurs of the existing house.   There
have    been    no    necessity    for

when the date for the opening

members,   ln case of a dlssolu-
such a courBe seems to be some-
It unnecessary but it Is the practlco
lhat being so, It was followed In
case.    Thero was no slopping of
notices.   Tho provincial secretary's
fe is under the Impression that all
members received  them, as  they
sent out to all.    But be thiB as
buy, lt Is absolutely true that the
Brnment had no Intention of calling
old  house together for March 7;
hence It follows, that thore was no

At the Play.
In appreciative audience greeted the
Jclans last night when that company
���tie Its final nppearance In Nelson
7 two years. Tho opora "Said Pasha"
| familiar lo Nelson thoatro-goers and
needs no comment here. The cast of
the play differed slightly from that of
the last production of the opera by Ihe
Rosclans here, but did not suffer by
the change.
Miss I.m-iit Nola excelled herself and
was encored vigorously lu her song,
"Oh, Come lo Me, My 1-ove." Miss Win-
nlfresl Crowley, whoBc beautiful contralto voice was heard to great advantage, was heartily applauded. Carl
Hoffman In Iho title role and F. W.
Walters as Perrano were well received.
The part of the rajah was well taken
by J. W. Lawlon. Bala Sojah, aB presented by Miss Lulu Harris, was clever,
while Miss Irene Palmer did well as
Serena. The comedians, John Dewey
an Hadad, and Ed Plavelle as Nockey,
provoked much laughter. Nockey's Imitation of the bagpipes took the house.
The duel scene, while extremely comic,
was rather ovordone. The hit of the
evening was the song, "Life Is Only
Sunshine," by the quintette. On the
whole "Said Pasha" Is by far Ihe best
pr���du.thin of the Rosclans and the
company will surely have a warm welcome from their many friends ln Nelson on their return.

Los Angeles, Cal., Jan. 10.���A landslide lu the Canyon Pass has blocked
the through transit of tbo Same Pe and
Snlt Lake railroads. The Los Angeles
limited, due here yesterday afternoon ls
tied up behind tho Blide. East-bound

Austria Fears Predominating Influence
of English Capital.
Berlin, Jan. 9.���The Lsskal Anzelger,
recently- sent out a special correspondent to Servla to Inveslgate the recurrence of the reports that a revolution
Is being organized against King Peter
and his family. Thc correspondent telegraphed today that Premier Paslcs attributes the persistent endeavors to
convince the Brltlah public that a revolution Ib about to break out in Servla
to the Intrigue of the government of
another country, meaning Austria. The
despatch adds that Austria fears that
the projected large Investments of British capital In the Balkan trausversal
railway and in various Industrial enterprises In the Balkans would give
Great Britain a predominant Influence
In Servla.
Wireless Message   to   Governor Win-
throp May Be From Misting Steamer.
Pensacola, Fin., Jan. 10.���Shortly before midnight last night the wireless
station at the Pensacola navy yards
picked up a message from the steamer
Caracas. It was to San Juan and addressed to Governor and Mrs. Wlnthrop
and while no Bight was caught by the
local Btatlon it Is believed that It wns
pasengers of the steamer Ponce, though
this lacked any verification. It was as
"Jan. 8.���Governor and Mrs. Wlnthrop: We wish you a happy and pros-
jcrous new year and congratulate you."
The local station could not get iu
communication with either the steamer
or San Juan, or learn whether the
steamer had the Ponce ln tow. The
vessel's ownors believe, however, Hint
the Ponce Is In tow of the Mnracaa, not
tho Caracas. The Caracas ls bound for
Purto Rico, having sailed from New
York January 5.
Ymir  Liberals  Nominate   Strong   Man
aa Candidate.
A meeting of representative Liberal
electors of the Ymir riding was held
ln tho parlors of the Hume Hotel laBt
evening, delegates being present from
Waneta, Salmo, Erie, Ymir, Trail, Fair-
view and otber points In the constituency numbering about 20 In all.
J, Irwin of Fairvlew was appointed
secretary of the meeting the business
for which it was called was stated by
tbe chalrmau. This was to select a
candidate to contest Ymir constituency
la the Liberal Interests at the approaching election.
Only one name as a possible candidate was presented, that being the
name of J. Fred Hume, one time provincial secretary and minister of mines
in the Semiin ministry, which lasted
from August 12, 1898, till February 27,
Mr. Hume resigned the portfolio of
provincial secretary on March 10, 1899,
but continued to act as minister of
Hs was accordingly nominated ln the
Informal way customary at such preliminary gatherings  last night.
lt Is not yet known who will be Mr.
Hume's opponent In the field and while
the popularity of the Liberal candidate
is admitted it is also confessed that
he will have the run of his life to make
good in the Ymir Constituency. The
fact of his being an outsider and nonresident will tell heavily against Mr.
Hume who is considered to be forced
upon the constituency because no resident Liberal candidate was available.

(Special to The Dally Canadian.)
Kaslo, Jan. 9.���At a convention of
Liberals held In Poplar today John
Kane was named to co.stest thc riding
In the Liberal interests agalnts Nell F.
MacKay. The convention was by no
means unanimous but Kane's followers
carried the day. There is little Interest

ppearaaces than in the expectatilon of
winning    thecontest.

Nicholas Castana of Cienfuegos, ln the
sugar growing district, will refuse to

Finds tiitiiusiasm and
Unity Everywhere
W. C. Wells Declined to take Platform against Hr. McBride in
Debate-Rally at Revelstoke.
(Special to 'fhe Dally Canadian.
Revelstoke, B. C, Jan. 10.���Premier
McBride and W. J. Bowser arrived
here at noon today from Golden, where
thoy attended a meeting last night In
the Interest of H. G. Parsons, Conservative candidate for Columbia constituency. The premier reports that the
riding Is strongly in favor of Parsons.
Tbe Liberals lack cither courage or interest, as they have not yet selected a
candidate. W. C. Wells will likely be
the choice of the opposition, but Indications are that he will put up only a
half-hearted fight. He was in Golden
lust night and Ignored the Invitation to
meet the premier on the platform.
A monster meeting will be held here
tonight and the Conservatives are all enthusiastic. The premier and Mr. Bowser will be in Arrowhead tomorrow
morning and Nelson tomorrow night.
Submarine Signalling.
Washington, D. C, Jan. 10.���Experiments conducted by the lighthouse
board In the United States, the British
admiralty and the Danish government,
supplemented by some of the smaller
tests made by Rear Admiral Evans,
have satisfied the navy department of
thc value of the system of submarine
signalling by means of bells, to indicate
tbe approach of a ship in thick weather or night fall, to the shore, and steps
are being taken to equip most of the
vesels of the navy with the proper devices for transmitting and receiving the
bell signals under water. It is believed this will reduce largely the chances
of stranding and collisions.

Holldaysburg, Pa., Jan. 10.���The plant
and buildings of the Standard Powder
company of Pittsburg was today destroyed by an explosion caused by a
fire. No lives were lost but damage
will exceed $100,000. The fire is now
in progress,- the flames are eating thelt
way through a storehouse In which
thousands of kegs of powder and two
carloads of dynamite are stored. Train

Laughlln company thc charred remains
or seven men are tit the morgue and 12
bndly burned and crippled at the hospital, while laborers ure digging through
masses of steel and cinder for the bodies of several others who are missing.
Of the injured three will probably die.
The morgue today was besieged by a
constant stream of relatives of the unfortunates. The bodies of the victims
were badly burnel and almost unrecognizable; however, five of the seven taken out have been Identified.
At least 23 of the 40 men who were
In teh vicinity have been accounted for.
The estimate will make the Hat of the
dead and injured much larger than was
at first expected.
Coroner Armstrong today said he believed there were many bodies in the
debris. He said that if an lnvestlga-
' tion reveals blame for anyone, prosecutions will follow.
ada during tbe present year at from
40,000 to 50,000. General opinion Is
given that the government will either
suspend the alien labor act and allow
contractors and railway companies to
bring In men under contract or bring
them In themselves and farm them out
to employers of labor. Big railways
known to be in need of men make very
pressing representations to the powers
that be In this labor question. It It
said that Sir Wilfrid and his ministers
have given attentive hearing to all that
has been said on the subject It Is admitted, In fact, that without special action on the part of the government a
good part of the projected railway construction in different parts of Canada
will be held ln abeyance
Los Angeles, Cal., Jan. 10.���In precipitation the storm that has drenched

Lieutenant Governor Bulysa of Alberta
Disclaims Knowledge, but Covers
Whole Field.
Lethbrldge, Jan. 10.���Hon. H. G. V.
Bulyea, lieutenant governor of Alberta,
speaking of the coming session of the
Alberta legislature, which convenes on
January 24, said:
"You know I know nothing about politics, I may say, however, that the
coming legislative session, the second
since the erection of Alberta Into a
province, will be quite a heavy one, and
that the time of the members will bs
engrossed mainly with revamping and
amending of old territorial statutes and
re-enacting them ln an Improved form
under our new constitution. Of the
strictly new pieces of legislation, one
ot the most Important will undoubtedly be the proposed provincial railway
act, under which the province will exercise its power or granting charters
for railways and of regulating them.
The territories formerly had no power
with respect to railways. It ts extreme
ly unlikely that the commission appointed to enquire Into the question of
tbe beef combine will have any report
for this year's session, as the British
Columbia government has not yet ap-
pointed Its representatives. The rep-
rcscntatives of Alberta, Saskatchewan
and Manitoba have, however, met informally, tbe taking of evidence has
not begun."
His honor said a spirit of harmony
and co-operation characterised the
members and parties ln the legislature
In dealing with the measure, which
gain an added Importance from being
enacted when the Institutions are as
yet In a plastic condition.

All-British Steamer Lines
Improved Connections Will Bring
Halifax Within Four Days
of London.
London, Jan. 10.���The plana of the so
long discussed scheme for an all-British mall route from London to the Far
East by way of Canada are ln course
of preparation tor presentation to parliament at an early date. The plan

Any comfort lhe Liberals may have

of difrerences of opinion anions Conservatives of Vancouver, has frozen.
The list of candidates chosen by the
convention Is declared to be entirely
satisfactory, even to those who frankly
disapproved of the method of selection.
What was misrepresented���and deliberately and maliciously misrepresented
���as a serious split in the Conservative
ranks In the largest city in the province, was merely a dispute, anil not an
unfriendly dispute, as to the wisdom
of primary meetings and the election
or delegates who in turn should nominate the candlndats or candidates. The
opponents of the system advocate the
open nomination in mass meeting. On
such a question there Is plenty of room
for honest difference or opinion. The
primary system���which, by th" way,
has heen In vogue Tor years throughout
lhe United States for federal, state and
county elections���has the advantage of
convenience and avoids a multiplicity
of nominations of men who have perhaps but a few supporters, or who huve
no Idea of even considering a nomination. It might be amended, perhaps, by
the omission of the custom of asking
���tho Americans require���all present lo
pledge support to the candidal finally
chosen. But, on the other hand, the
mass meellng for nomination is often
a scene of confusion; It Is sometimes
swayed by sudden Impulse, and very

who is absent and later declines, neces-
sitatng another mass meeting, and
making the honor of second choice less |
desl.-able to other me:i. Moreover, In
scattered constituencies such as Ymir,
l-'aslo, Cariboo and    many   others, a I
mass meeting of electors Is a physical
Impossibility, ant] If there is to be Uniformity or method the system of primaries and delegates ls the only one
feasible. But, whatever the means, the
aim is always to select the best men
availab'e. So long as that Is achieved,
only hypercritical persons will prolong
a dispute about the means. That has
been achieved in Vancouver, as Is now
acknowledged by all. The Liberal organs will yet have to fall back on���or
urt���Kaien Island.
How many of the opposition leaders
���It Is a parly without rank and file-
would have paid 10,000 for a townsite
on Kaien island at the time that
.Messrs. Larsen, Anderson and Bodwell
made application for it, on the chance
of its being chosen as a terminal point
for a transcontinental road? The real
work of building the Orand Trunk Pacific has not yet begun. No one knows
yet when the western end will be begun. If former experiences of similar situations are of any value, It Is
safe lo predict that If fortunes are
made, fortunes will also be lost In real
estate In Prince Rupert. But a few
year* ago what Is now valuable property in Vancouver city could have been
bad for nothing. There are many residents of Nelson who are not by any
means old-timers, who can remember
when ihey could have bought the whole
of the nortii shore of the West Arm at
a dollar an acre or less, and would
have considered themselves fools for
making the investment. It is easy lo
be wise alter the event. The speculator
with foresight and courage���gambler's
courage, perhaps���Is entitled to his reward when there Is any. Do the Liberals mean lo suggest that the government should have yone inlo the real
estate speculative business and gambled
In terminal townsites? Unless they
do, their criticisms of the sale of the
Kaien Island tract In the ordinary
course of business of the lands and
office is entirely without foundation.
Had a woman's name not-been connected with it, with all the possibilities so
afforded to minds that love mire, it
is safe to say there would have been
no Kaien island scandal.
The Statement In yesterday's issue
of The Dally Canadian of the city's
case In regard to the failure so far of
the AlllB-Chalmers-Bullock company to
operale the city's power plant with the
machinery furnish?d ly them and Installed by their engineers, will be welcome news to those who may have had
tu defend lhe servants of the city from
charges of Incompetency or neglect. If,
as Is alleged on behalf of the oompany
���It may be without authority���Its officials knew from the first that the design of Ur. Clemens lli'twhe! wus defective, they should have Informed the
city author.ties of that fact befssre
closing a contract to supply Uh- machinery. Moreover, their engineers, lu-
clusllng W. 1*'. fill uud A. Aberli, havo
repeatedly assured the city that the
plant as cqulppcil by them, wsiuhl op*
erate successfully when complc te. Under the circumstances, th*> long and repealed delays, the uniaUifftdtory explanations, anil the final failure, the
imputiencs- and resent ment of Mayor
Ulllett and bis cislleagues are natural
uud Just.
It ls a well known fact that lhe Liberal parly have no bogie of winning a
seat in the Ymir riding with a united
parly in opposition. Under these circumstances It is quite reasonable to
suppose that no effort will be spared,
and no amount will be considered unwisely spent if a split in the Conservative ranks can be secured. Hence tho
strenuous efforts put forth to introduce
John Houston Into the field. Hy such
a consummation it is the wish and hope
of the Liberal party to secure the seat
for their nominee. And the News Is
lending Itself to bring about this end,
laying the onus of Mr. Houston's Introduction on the Conservative party,
while at the same lime fully aware that
the Liberals are alone responsible. This
may be considered good politics from
a Liberal standpoint, and is nothing
more than can be expected from a party whose only policy in the present
campaign is of the cut-throat variety.
It only remains for the Conservatives
to stand put, ansl by their votes on February 2 teach the Liberals that they
are "on to the game" and refuse to be
misled by such shallow tactics, and
that on the political questions of tho
day Ihey are as one.
A pleasing feature of lhe Conservative campaign waged on behalf of Alderman Kirkpatrick is the number of
young electors who not only attend lhe
meetings but present themselves in the
committee rooms to be enrolled as active workers. The West, and especially llrltlsh Columbia, is a country for
young men���Premier McUride has just
completed his 36th year. It Is young
men, with the energy, tlie confidence
and the enthusiasm of youth, who are
required to face and perform the tasks
that still lie before tlie builders of this
Western empire. The veteran may Inspire and direct effort, but the actual
work can only be done by lhe young
and strong. It ls, Indeed, a hopeful
sign for Nelson and for the province
that the young men show unmfstake-
ably their appreciation of the opportunities afforded to them as a result of
Conservative and constructive administration, and have no patience with a
leader or a party whose sole activity is
negative criticism and whose chief delight Is scandal-mongering.
,"It Is time tor a change," reiterated
for mouths by the Toronto Globe, was
the chief factor in winning the Dominion elections ol 1896. Therefore, The
Dally News thinks It must again win
for a Liberal party In British Columbia at the present time. "It's time for
a change" has several advantages as a
party rallying cry from a Liberal point
of view. It really means nothing; and
it can be echoed without any exercise
of Intelligence. II is always the appeal of those who have nothing to offer
In the way of argument. But even as
such there is a vast difference between
tho force of such an appeal In 1896 and
now. Then, a onservatlve party had
been In office for 18 consecutive years.
The country's development was well
begun and no question was before the
country affecting Its material welfare
���except the tariff policy, and few had
had any fears of Liberal sincerity. But
now the Conservative government of
llrltlsh Columbia has been in office only three years and a half, the rehabilitation of the province has only begun,
we are engaged In a right with a Dominion for our financial rights. Certainly It Is no time for a change, least
of all lo such alternatives as offer.
In this morning's issue of the "It Is
said" organ of the Liberal party we are
Informed lhat local Conservatives have
subscribed to a fund to secure the services of the late member, John Houston, for the puriwse of defeating Henry
Wright in the Ymir riding, and the further Information If volunteered that
John has been Influenced to accept the
invitation and that he will contest the
riding SB an Independent candidate.
Whether there be any truth In the latter announcement remains to be seen.
With reference lo thc Conservative subscription to a fund for the purpose stated, we brand the announcement as a
"campaign falsehood," pure and simple,
and rurther venture tbe statement that

Fiends In Command of Whaling Vessels
Brought to Trial.
Ottawa, Jan. 9���Some Interesting
correspondence has taken place between Canadian and United States authorities with reference lo charges
made against certain captains of the
American Arctic whaling /leet, which
generally winters at Herschell IslaiiJ.
Hideous stories are told of the cruelly
of two or three of the whaling captains.
KJlnkenbcrg, captain of the whaler Ol-
ga, brutally murdered his engineer Paul
Jackson, some months ago, while another captain by the name of lloclflsli
kicked to death a colored member of
his crew. In the case of Kllnkenburg
a * question has arisen whether the
murder took place within Canadian
Jurisdiction. Olga was at Point Barrow at tbe time, but was said to be outside the three mile limit and acting
ui��n this assumption the United States
authorities bave undertaken to deal
with the alleged murderer In federal
Another whaling captain, Newth of
the Jcanette, is indicted for criminal
assault upon an Eskimo girl. The girl
and her mother have arrived at Seattle
to testify to the awful scenes which
took place on the Jeanette.
According to evidence submitted to
thc grand jury, Newth has been In habit
of abducting young girls in thc spring
and keeping them on board for Immoral
purposes all through the whaling
cruise. His actions have been notorious
and although they have been made public In previous years In the newspapers
of the Pacific coast no action has has
ever been taken until now.
In all there are ten wltnessess against
the captains who were denied bonds
and held ln jail to await trial. Should It
subsequently develop that these crimes
were commltteed ln Canadian Jurisdiction the Dominion government will proceed   vigorously  to vindicate  the  law.
It cost Canada $75,000 a few years
ago to run down a Yukon murderer
but the money was well spent. If
necessary the department of Justice Is
prei.red to spensl a simillar amount ln
order to demonstrate to men whose vocation calls them to Artie regions that
they must respect the laws of Canada.

Story of Crime In Loulaiana   for Whicli
a State Repreientatlve le Being
Tried Today.
Baton Rouge, La., Jan. 10.���Throughout thin section the one topic Of discussion just now is the trial of Representative-elect George K. Favrot for
the alleged murder of Dr. R. H. Aid-
rich, hlB col cue classmate, lifelong
friend and family physician. The case
resembles the Thaw case ln New York,
In that both involve "the unwritten
law." But the two cases are entirely
dissimilar in respect to the reputation
ot the principals. In the Favrot case,
up to the day ot tbe tragedy, all those
chiefly concerned were of unimpeachable reputation and of highest standing
in the community. At the time of the
killing Favrot was district judge and
about the same lime was elected a representative ln congress. The vlctolm,
until a short time b fore his death,
was a physician of high standing and
known as a religious, abstemious man.
Different stories are told of the
events and causes tbat led up to the
tragedy. It is averred by his friends
that Dr. Aldrlch possessed a secret regarding the wife of Favrot and that the
knowledge greatly oppressed him. It
is related that he appealed to a ftilow-
physician that he go to Judge Favrot
and reveal It to hlm. Dr. Aldrlch spoke
of bin anguish and of his reluctance to
destroy confidence reposed in a wo itn,
yet he felt as a friend that he could no
ionger preserve silence. It ls Bald that
the doctor appe.il'd to llnally cony-it-
ed, and this brtught on the tragedy
But the friends of Judge Favml give
an mtlrely different version of Ihe
case. They affirm that Dr. A'drich,
while intoxicated, was not so cttisittil lu
his Bpeech as tv should have been, and
made boasts that involved the good
il��iiie of a woman. The usual tal -bearer hurried to Favrsit and informed hlm
of the alleged reflections cast by Dr.
Ah Irish.
'i Tie tragedy occurred November 7
last. The returns from Ihe election
were" still coming in when Represent*
tlve-i'lect Favrot walked down Capitol
street. On his way numerous friends
slopped hlm and congratulated hlm on
his vli'.tory. Judge Favrot thanked
them, apparently as collected as ever.
Leaving �� group of his friends he crossed the st.*eet and entered the Raymond
building. Hardly had he disappeared
within the door when a pistol shot wsb
heard, folluwed by another, and a third.
Tho first to reach the scene found the
body of Dr. Aldrlch Btretched upon the
floor, with Judge Favrot, pistol In hand,
looking coolly on. Tho physician hnd
just descended the stairs from his office on the second floor when met by
the volley or bullets that Instantly kill
ed him.
Judge Fabmrt has consistently refused to make public the facts that led up
to the killing, except to let It be known
that he killed tho physician because the
latter had trtvluced Mrs. Favrot's character. In circles known to bo friendly
to the Aldrlch family the belief Ih expressed that Dr, Aldrlch was a martyr;
. that he sacrificed his life In an unwise
attempt to show his deep friendship
for Judge Favrot and to reveal to hlm
a secret with which he thought his
friend ought to be made acquainted.
Others express the opinion that Favrot
"got the wrong man," and that he realized his error too late. Others, including some who declare they have a
knowledge of the Inside facts, stoutly
maintain that Judge Favrot was justified in taking the law into his own
Mrs. Favrot, the supposed cause of
the tragedy, has been a leader in the
social life of Hilton Rouge. Her home
has been one of the most elegant in
the city, and there the legislators have
found hospitable greeting. Mrs. Favrot took an active part In her husband's
campaign for congress when he defeated Colonel "Sam" Robertson, who had
represented the Sixth district for a dozen years. In connection with the killing of Dr. Aldrlch Mrs. Favrot has
not utlered one word for publication.
Under the Louisiana law she cannot be
compelled to testify against her husband.
The Favrot family has retained a formidable array of eminent counsel to
assist In the defence. The list Is headed by Judge T. J. Herman of this city,
who Is recognized as one of the greatest
exponents of "the unwritten law" in
America, and whose address before the
recent meeting of the American Bar
association at St. Paul attracted widespread attention.
Judge Kernan formulates the "unwritten law" system into ten cardinal
laws, the fourth of which is: "Any man
who traduces a virtuous woman's character may be shot with Impunity by her
or her husband or any near relative.
Hut Ihe offender must first be given an
opportunity to deny and disprove the
charge or lo retract and apologize."
From this It Ib evident that the point
upon which the present trial will turn
13 the question as to whether Dr. Aldrlch was given nn opportunity to "deny
nnd disprove the charge" or to retract
and apologize.
