Allis-Chalmers Co.
The chief feature or the three hours'
session of the city council last evening
was a discussion of the relations between tho council and the board of
school trustees, during which Mayor Gil-
letl intlniulod that until he was sutlsfied
with lhe conduct of the school board,
he might prevent the sale of the school
The council met shortly after 8 with
Mayor Gliktt ln the chair, and Aldermen Huraey Selous, McMorrls and Irving present. Al ierumn Hose dropped in
later. The minuses of tbe last meeting
were read and approved.
Rev. J. T. Ferguson, who was present
on behulf of the library, by permission,
Informed lhe council that there were
16.000 visitors to the library during the
last year, and 174 subscribers. He also
gave statistics of revenue aud expenditure for the year, showing that the library required some assistance, not spe-
clfied, for ihe balance of the year.
Alderman Selous warned to know how
many non-subscribers patronized the
Venning room und contributed the trifle,
$2.85, in Ihe offertory box. Mr. Ferguson replied "rather more than 600."
On motion of Alderman Selous a grant
of $3511 was passed for the current yeur.
The finance committee reiiorted recommending payment or sundry small accounts, and a payroll of $380.88, which
were passed and ordered paid.
A letter from tho 20,000 Club asked

request wub granted.
A letter from It. II. Zavltz assured the

The cumpnny usks thai the plant be
shut down Tor n period to permit of
their completion of the plant. They nlso
advised that arrangements be made at
once for the completion of the tnil-racca
to avoid further shut-downs.
An accompanying telegram from Milwaukee promised a larger and entirely
new governor.
The mayor reported having negotiated
with Mr. Zavltz. No payments have been
made. The turbine gates work with
great difficulty, and may be partly responsible for unsatisfactory working.
F. A. Smith replied to the mayor that
the Installation of a new governor could
be accomplished ln three dnys.
After some Informal discussion It was
resolved on motion of Alderman Selous thut the company be informed that
nny shut-down would be objectionable
to tho city, and that the prospect of
rurther delay was very unsatisfactory.
Discussion of the financial arrangements between the city and the cora-
pnny In connection with tbo operation
or tho plant showed that the company
was probably making a profit on the
A letter rrom F. A. Smith reported
that a transformer serving Fnlrvlew was

change, which was authorised.
A letter from H. & M. Bird asked for
a change In terms of a lease, and offered
the lots on which the court house stands
ror $2,700 und gave an option for 20
days. The mayor wus authorized to negotiate.
A letter from Chief Deasy, of the fire
department, asked that the duties of
building Inspector be defined. The chief
pointed out an apparent conflict of
duties between such official and himself.
On motion of Alderman McMorrls the
city engineer was appointed building inspector.
A letlor from Dr. Arthur, secretary of
the board of school trustees, replying
to a letter written by the city clerk on
the direction of the mayor, was read.
First, the mayor explained the circumstances from lily point of view, and had
his lotter read. The mayor's letter
asked If the board purposely Ignored
the committee of the council In the
choice of plans. The board's reply
stated that there was no such intention
but that, the board being unanimous on
the choice of a plan, there was no ap-
pnienl reason for delay.
The mayor���I think this was n most
Important matter, and we have been unfairly treated.
Alderman Selo.iB���In tho oft repeated

Alderman   McMorrls���We  can  Insist
on being treated with courtesy.
Aldermun   Rose���The council Is ob much
Interested  ln  the  new school as  the

Alderman Irving���The board was amicus to have us present when the
amount was fixed. Since then they have
not been anxious.
Alderman Selous���We may have a
siring on that $1,500 we voted, or on a
part of It. Have we any other? Are
the debentures sold?
The mayor���No, and they won't be,
till I am satisfied.
The mayor further stated that he had
r, eclved a letter from the city solicitor
asking for a copy of the bylnw. He had
also received four inquiries for the debentures. He had not answered nor advertised. He thought it unnecessary at
It was moved by Alderman McMorrls,
seconded by Alderman Rose that the
city clerk communicate with the school,

the board to ignore the special committee of the city council on all matters
connected with the erection of the new
Alderman McMorrls���Such a resolution will have more weight than an Individual expression of opinion.
The mayor���I am satisfied. My mind
Is made up.
Aldermun Selous���Are we resolved
that they shall get no money until they
toe the mark?
The mayor���That Is my intention.
The mayor further remarked that the
school as planned may cost more than
the estimate. The committee of the
council might prevent that.
The motion was then adopted unanimously.
James Harris, of the city water works
department, asked for an Increase of

corner of Hall find linker streets would
be repaired, and Alderman Rose that
Vernon street would be cleaned up.

the Vancouver street sign bylaw. He
was asked to secure also copies of the
Vancouver and Revelstoke lot cleaning
The city engineer reported an Inspection, as building Inspector, of the Nelson hotel. He asked for an amendment
to the building bylaw to forbid exterior
or Interior alterations to wooden buildings within the fire limits. He was Informed that such a bylaw was already
in force, and he was authorized to summon offenders.
He also reported that the public portion of the cemetery was ln a dilapidated condition.
It was agreed that the council Bhould
contribute $10 a year to the cost of uniform of each tramway employee, in the
service for three months.
The city clerk was then instructed to
call the attention of the cemetery, caretaker to his duties as defined by bylaw.
The ordinary payrolls'for June were
then passed, and the council adjourned
to Wednesday, July 3rd.

recalled. There is an inclination to connect the rumor of his reported coming

with the Emperor this morning after the

Sau Francisco, June 18.���United
States District Attorney Devlin yesterday received a letter from Attorney General Bonaparte in response to that

Text of Resolution of
Toronto Synod
Leaders Should Refuse Power Gained
by Corruption���All Must
Join in Crusade.
"That the report be referred back for
the purpose of Introducing apt words to
express the conviction of this synod
that a great purification of politics, of
financial, social and business methods
in this country is Imperatively demanded today, and that the church, her
bishops, ber clergy and laymen should
take a leading part in Immediately
changing the present deplorable state
of affairs."
The sbove resolution, moved by Mr.
N. F. Davidson, seconded by Hon. S.
H. Blake, was unanimously adopted at
the Anglican synod of Toronto.
Arising out of tbe report of the committee on the state of the church, the
question began in the form of an expressed desire to Improve the tone of
the church and to raise money to carry
on its work.
The remark was dropped that "if the
spiritual life is quickened, money and
other needs will come."
Canon Davidson, of Peterborough,
thought that the most important voice
of the church should be heard.
"We must look upon the political con'
dltlous," he said, "and set ourselves, not
only tbe church of England, but all our
fellows In the work, to purify and uplift our native land. Our first duty to
the community is to aid when she seems
downtrodden, as at the present is the
cane, ln some ways at least. We should
unite in a common effort to help the
po.ltlcal condition throughout Canada."
Mr. W. H. Hoyle, M.P.P., was the next
"No one will deny?' he said, "the very
intimate relation between the church
and the State, The average politician
would welcome the aid of the church
in clearing the political atmosphere. I
shall also say, regardless ot partisan-
ship, that the average politician of today compares very favorably with the
average man of the country, and probably a little better. (Applause.) We
are the outcome, the by-product, of tbe
community.* I trust that the day Is past
when the idea prevails that the church
should abstain from taking an active
part in the government of the State.
It is a false idea. (Applause.)
"I will say further, that the political
life of tbe Dominion of Canada will appreciate any effort of the church to
purify and uplift the state of our poll
tics. It Is the duty of tbe church to
Inculcate a higher appreciation of the
franchise."   (Applause.)
Mr. N. F. Davidson, the mover of the
motion, declared, ln speaking to the
Synod, that there was no set of leaders
in the land over whose eyes the wool
Is so eusily pulled as the clergy.
"Thank God!' 'he exclaimed, "they are
oftentimes a guileless set of people."
"I speak advisedly,' continued Mr,
Davidson in response.
"They do not know the condition of
political, moral or social life even
among the people of their own congregations, to whom they are from Sunday
to Sunday preaching.
"I agree with Mr. Hoyle that our politicians are as good as the general run
of the people. -t
"But evil Is creeping Into the country.
"Nobody called on business to Ottawa
returns without some idea of the Immense pressure that Is brought to bear
on your politicians of every class to do
that which will not stand the light of
"The time Is today, and it calls upon
churchmen to take the foremost stand
for purity and right.
"If we think our religion is only one
that begins Sunday morning and ends
Sunday evening," said Mr. Blake, rising
to second the motion, "then we better
not do anything with politics. But If
It begins on Monday and ends with Saturday then we should have very much
to do.'
Speaking of Mr. Hoyle's comparison
between the politician and the nvorage
man, Mr. Blake Bald:
"We all feel what a judgment Has
been passed on all non-politicians by Mr.
Hoyle's word. (Laughter.) It requires
strong shoulders to bear. But I want
to Bay that we must have strong shoulders. And too, I deem it right, that If
a single dollar be spent Illegally in the
next election campaign, to aid Mr.
Hoyle in obtaining his seat, he should
retire. (Hear! Hear!)
"If thnt were done In every case our
politics would soon bo clean."
Mr. Blake called attention to an Instance In tho United States where the
candidate declared that tf a single dollar were spent to enable him to gain
his seat, be would retire. No money was
spent ln that election. This was educating the public in the right way.
"If those placed in high positions,"
Mr. Blake resumed, "were to say, 'we
will not accept an election where fraud
and corruption Is used,' then the people
would Bay, 'neither will we make use of
it.' The whole thing might be evaded
In five years If we but had the men
strong enough to stand for truth and
right. Our greatest mistake Is too low

Mothers were to blame also he declared. "They have no time to look after
their children with their balls, golf
clubs and r> o'clock teas and their children go to the bad. Each person here
should enter the priesthood, not as a
priest or a clergyman, but as one conscious that we are not doing our duty."
The premier should say," continued
Mr. Blake, " I refuse to stand in this
position when I know my members have
used unlawful means to put me here.'
i "Let us. In God's name, be true honest and upright in every dealing. Let
us plead with our representatives not
to enter in where there is impropriety.
If it Ib to become a live issue In our
land, every layman should Bay: 'From
this day forth, it Is not a matter of success but of standing before my God and

Forest Fires at Cobalt.
Cobalt, June-18.���Prospectors returning from TemagamI forest reserve report serious bush fires, causing loss of
tents, canoes and camp buildings. Jack
Munroe Is said to have lost two camps.
Big forest fires are burning near Hailey-
bury. The fire got uncomfortably close
to two magazines ot powder, but is now
out of the- danger zone. The townships of Smith and James on the Montreal river are almost burned over and
much valuable timber destroyed. Prospectors are pleased as they can now
easily get in their outfits.
Japanese Prince Enjoying th* West���
Admire* Physique of Black-
fe��t Brave*.
Calgary, June 18.���After 24 hours' run
since leaving Oakshela yesterday the
royal train Is now approaching Calgary.
Yesterday the same cordial reception
was given the prince at every place as
has been general throughout the West.
At Moose Jaw the prince was received
with cheers accompanied with the
strains of the Japanese national anthem
by a really fine band. A halt of an hour
was made for exercise at Ernfold, the
time being spent in rifle practice, gopher
snaring, etc. This morning tbe aspect
is somewhat changed. We have left the
wheat area, and the gently undulating
prairie which constitutes the great
ranching district ot the West Is ot special Interest. Great herds of cattle and
horses arc seen on either Bide ot the
line and occasionally prairie wolves, one
fine specimen running with the train for
some distance. The pretty little antelope is also numerous.
At Gleichen ,the prince met for the
first time the genuine Blackfoot Indian,
a large number of that tribe being
camped close to the station. They
gathered around the prince's car In all
the fancy dress peculiar to the tr'be.
The prince remarked that the scene was
very picturesque and commented on the
splendid physique of the men. Stepping
down from bis car he examined closely
the medals and decorations of the chief
and inquired as to the meaning of a wand
carried by the chief, which was presented to him by Sir John Macdonald
on the conclusion of a treaty.
Before leaving, the prince, through
Mr. Pope, presented the chief with $100
to be distributed as he saw fit among
his people. The weather continues very
Rumor That Mrs. Potter Palmer Will
Marry an Earl.
Chicago, June 18.���The Tribune last
night received advices from London telling of the engagement of Mrs. Potter
Palmer to Aubrey FltzCIarence, Earl of
Munster, and Baron Tewkesbury. The
engagement has not been announced officially, but the Tribune's correspondent
declares there was no doubt an understanding had been reached. The wedding will take place In London In the
fall. The report confirms rumors that
have been current for some time. The
peer who won the heart and fortune of
Chicago's social leader is a bachelor 45
years of age and not blessed with a
superabundance of this world's goods.
He Is said to be handsome, however, and
a man of charming manner. He has no
public career other than that of gentleman usher to King Edward. His London residence Is 79 Elisabeth street at
Eaton Square and he has a house at
Brimston. For the rejuvenation of the
earl's establishment, Mrs. Palmer will
bring an Income ot more than $450,000
a- year, derived entirely from the Chicago real estate and other properties
left by Mr. Palmer at his death In 1902.
Mrs. Palmer has proved a prudent administrator of the estate, which at that
time was estimated to ho worth $8,000,-
000 and which has steadily Increased in
Mrs. Ordnri, of Denver,
Orchard. Recalled. Swears That Haywood Induced Htm to Send Fatsc
.accounts of Movements.
Boise, June 18.���With Harry Orchard
recalled to the stand, first to be formally prepared by the defence for Impeach- '
ment, and then to be redlrectly examined, the state produced this morning
a number of letters written by Orchard,
and one by the prisoner, Haywood,
which was for the purpose of showing
that there had been a conspiracy to de-
deceive Mrs. Orchard, of Cripple Creek,
as to the whereabouts of Orchard in the
spring and summer of 1905.
The defence vigorously protested the
Introduction of the matter on redirect
examination, but the court ruled that If
It waa improper on redirect examination he would permit the state to reopen
its examination.
Orchard swore that .Haywood said In
the spring of 1905 that Mr*. Orchard
was repeatedly writing to him as to Orchard's whereabouts, and Haywood suggested- that he write her a series
ot letters and date them at San
Francisco and have them delivered
through agents of the Western Federation of Miners.- The two were thus written and the state produced them, securing their admission. Then one was written dated at Nome, Alaska, and given
to take to Alaska and mail. The state
produced the letter and over objections
secured its admission. Next the state
produced a letter written by Haywood
himself to Mr*. Orchard showing that
the prisoner had knowledge of the.
Alaskan story and this too was admitted
in evidence.
Orchard also testified that the replies
of Mrs. Orchard were sent to him
through Haywood. The impeaching
questions propounded by he defence all
indicated a purpose by tho defence to
show that at other times Orchard had
threatened to kill Steunenberg because
of a desire to be revenged for the loss ot
his interest in the Hercules mine.

On his way west from Montreal Mr.

mill ln the British Empire, having a capacity ot 14,000 Backs per day, with machinery installed at present,, for an output of 10,000 sucks per day.
Their combined milling plant at Keewatin makes that little town the largest
milling centre ln the Dominion, their
A mill having au output of 8,000 sack*
per day, while their C mill has a dally
output of 10,000 sacks per day. At Portage la Prairie their B mill has an out'
put of 3,000 sacks dally.
When they Install the balance of their
machinery ln their C mill at Koewatin,
this will give them an output of 26,000
sacks per day. They will require 50,000
bushels of wheat per day to operate
their mills. They have a faint idea that
the output daily of th.slr combined mills
will exceed the output of any other mill
ing company in the British Empire.
Mr. Melghen, who is accompaned by
Mrs. Melghen, Is proceeding farther
West before returning to Montreal.
"As to the future of the wheat market," said Mr. Melghen, "we as a rule
decline to give an opinion. We are not
prophets and besides are poor gueuers.
We do not speculate in wheat. You
know we do not require a milling plant
to speculate in wheat. However, we believe that the report of crop damage In
Europe and In this continent has been
exaggerated. The future of th* wheat
market must be entirely problematical."
Mr. Melghen, by the way, make* a trip
annually to the West and looks over
the Lake of the Woods milling plant*.
He has met many of his old friends her*
since coming Thursday, and Is looking
remarkably well.

Back From the Coast.
George Horsted and David Proud foot,
dtlegates to the Odd Fellows' convention at Xanaimo, have returned horn*-.
Fred Squire will get home in a few days.
The delegates speak highly of the arrangements of the Nanaimo brethren
(or their enteitaiument. A banquet was
given to the delegates to the grand
lodge by the members of the Nanaimo
lodge. Two hundred Odd Fellows assembled around the festive board, the
viands were the best obtainable, the
speech-making eloquent and humorous
and the evening was one of delight to
all of the participants. The Rebekahs
entertained the delegates and the Nanaimo Odd Fellows at a social. There
was dancing- music and refreshments.
During the evening the Rebekah degree
was exemplified in good style by the Re-
b.kah lodge. An excursion among the
islands around Nanaimo was another
feature which was much appreciated.
The hospitality of the people of Nanaimo was almost boundless and the visitors enjoyed themselves to the lop of
their bent.

bleeding and his nose badly bruised.
There was no blood any place in the
room, but after a search being made
outside this morning a spot was discovered where there was evidence of
blood. It must have been that .Mr.
Wright got up in his sleep and fell over

Narrow Escape.
There has been another na\row escape
from a fatality by the handling of dynamite. Two men. n::med-Kerr and (Irav,
have been engage,! for some time in
clearing land on J T. Campbell's ranch
up ihe lake. They have been using dy-
namite for blowing out the stumps, and
yesterday afternoon they were removing a box which contained five or six
sticks of the deadly stuff. In the box
(here was an unexpired cap. For some
cause still unexplained, the cap exploded two of the^sticks of dynamite. The
rwn men were^standing close to the box
at the moment the explosion took place
and for a minute were rendered insensible. When they came to it was discovered that Kerr was badly burned on the
face and arms, but without other serious injuries external or otherwise Gray
was hit in (he hack by fragments of the
box but escaped unharmed. The two
men started for the Kootenay I.ake gen-
'���neral hospital and reached then las!
evening. Their Injuries were attended
to and 'hey will be around again In a
few days. A great number of accidents
resulted from the use of dynamite the
:ast few years in the Kootenay.s. and it
:s the opinion of many that greater care
should he taken In handling this explosive.
