Provincial   Minister's   Novel   Views   of
Responsibility for Low Tone
of Parliament.
Montreal, May 111 ��� A meeting which,
according to Mr. A. P. 1'lgeon, chairman
of the gathering, was the opening gun
In the provincial election campaign,
took place last evening ln St. Josoph's
Hall, St. Catherine street, under the
auspices of the St. l.smis Liberal club.
Hon. W. A. Wier, the principal speaker, denied the charge that Sir Wilfrid
(.Hurler was responsible for the lowered
tone ln parliament. This was due rather
to men like Fowler and Ames, who employed detectives to lind out how many
glasses of wine a minister drank, or
how many clgnrs ho sinulutd Ksnrls
conduct was unworthy of any iiarty and
should be reprobated by the people of
Canada.
The minister also attacked Mr. T. S.
Blackstock. K. C, the eminent Toronto
lawyer, who in an address some days
ago deplored the lowered tone of parliament. Mr. Ulackstock had failed to
give the names of the members who
had been guilty of swearing In thc rotunda or a hotel In the presence of
ludies. A man who made a charge like
this, without giving names, branded
himself as a coward, declared Mr. Wler.
Was It because these men were Conservatives that Mr. Blackstock was
afraid to give their names?
Hon. Mr. Wler reviewed the record
of the Liberal government at Quebec,
saying they had done much for thc advancement of the province and would
do more moro for education, agriculture
and colonization.
Hon. H. J. Cloran followed with a
eulogy of Sir Wilfrid Laurler as the
greatest statesman in thc Imperial Conference, and then proceeded to defend
the senate. He declared himself the
special champion of the workingmen In
the Upper House. Before he got there
Ihey had few friends In that body, hut
they had not dared lo speak out until
he came and gave tho senate to understand that If they protected capital they
miiBt also protect labor. Referring to a
pamphlet by Mr. Oodfrol Langlols.
M. L. A., entitled "Down with the sen-
utes" thc speaker declared It was justified when written, but the Benate had
been reformed today. The senate, according to Hon. Oeorge W. Robs, was a
most useful institution. Todny the senate was Independent as shown hy the
wny 11 amended legislation adopted by
the commons on retpiest ot tho government.
Mr. R Hlckerdlke, M. P., admitted
Unit Ihe senate Interfered with government legislation, hut declared that was
whal the Upper House wnB paid for.
He too. had changed his opinions as to
lhe merits of the senate and now believed It a useful Institution.

British Opinion on Late
Conference
IMPERIALISTS LOSING
Laurler Exults in Victory Over "Too
Ardent" Advocates ��� English
Ministers' Stand Unpopular.
London, May 14.���Now that the Colonial Conference is over Sir Wilfrid
Laurier and the other milliliters express
tliemselvea on the whole well pleased.
They have, they say smilingly, won almost all along the line ab agalnBt tbe
too ardent Imperialists. They are now
completing their future arrangements.
Sir Wilfrid haB promised to visit Bristol to receive the freedom of that historic city, so closely associated with the
earliest American colonization. Hon.
W. S. Fielding aud Hon. Sydney Fisher
are expected to arrive ln London at tbe
end of the week, arter which Sir Wilfrid
proceeds direct to Switzerland to recuperate. Thence he goes to Italy, France
and elsewhere.
Hon. Mi. Asquith's promise that the
Hritish ministers would carefully reconsider the cattle question is accepted as
satisfactory, pending Mr. Fisher's arrival, but it ls not supposed that tbe
ministers will overthrow their minister
of agriculture and antagonize English
farming interests and set the Irish Nationalists Into revolt by admit ling competing Canadian store cattle.
It is hoped that Hon. Mr. Fielding's
presence  here  will assist the  further-
-lUlSC   or    ttlC   Uulj     prncticMl    o*��l_wn��o-of
me conference.
Three points are especially in mind
for closer co-operation between the Imperial and Colonial ministries.
Firstly, ln the creation of fast passenger and freight services so as to bring
Canada within four days ot England and
Australasia within 20 days via Canada.
Owing to the determined opposition of
Harold Cox, ex-secretary of the Cobden
Club, and other radical members of parliament, Hon. Mr. Lloyd-George was constrained to declare at the conference
that thc ministry opposed any general
system of subsidies to merchant shipping, but nevertheless It is expected
means will be found to secure adequate
Imperial, Canadian and Australasian
mail and admiralty subconventlons to
aid this form of Imperial road making.
The Hallfax-Blacksod scheme which
is still before parliament is not likely
to meet with acceptance, at all events In
Its present shaiie, the proposed ferry between England and Ireland being regarded as unsatisfactory for a fast
'route, nor Is the Newfoundland fast mall
route taken seriously.
Secondly, it Ib hoped the Imperial,
Canadian and Australasian governments
acting In co-operation wllljevise means
lo lower the cable tolls aB another effective substitute for that mutual pre!-
erence In tariffs, which the colonleB
unite In desiring, but Great Britain cannot now grant lower cable tolls especially desired to permit of Improved news
Bervices between England and the colonies, which Ib admittedly most unsatisfactory.
Thirdly. -Mr. Lloyd-George asks advice to help the Canadlun and other colonial ministers in Improving and systematizing commercial agency arrangements so as to greatly extend Inform i-
tlon available to manufacturers and
merchants hero and In the colonleB who
wish to push Inter-lmporlal trade. Mr.
Lloyd-George and other British ministers declare thnt by business-like co-operation along these practical lines more
can be done to encourage trade within
the Empire thnn Is possible by tnrlffs.
Nevertheless, most Englishmen nre al-
reudy writing Ihe word "failure" across
the conference or 1907. Sir Wilfrid
Laurler and his colleagues frankly admit that although Britain disclaims the
preference today, Mr. Balfour wub probably right when he declared In Albert
Hall, last week, thnt thc preference ls
bound to win and that soon.
The British ministers* refusal of col
onlal offers made a profound Impression
on tho public here. To them It seems
like slamming the mother's door In the
children's face. Sir Wilfrid's speech at
the conference yesterday, when In re-
sixinse to British appeals, he frankly
explained Canada's Intention to negotiate with foreign powers on the basts
of the intermediate tariff Is for Englishmen another powerful argument for mutual preference not only because the Intermediate tariff Immediately reduces
the margin of the British preference
under which alone Britain can hold her
own against foreigners In colonial markets, but also because foreign negotiations may easily and more or less permanently bar the way to closer commercial unity of the Empire on a reciprocal busts. ,
Wheat Soaring.
Chicago, May 14.���Wheat took a tremendous Jump at the opening ot tbe
hoard of trade today. Initial prices for
the leading options showing a gain of
11 cents since Friday. The latter advance was on the December delivery
which sold at $1.03.
GLAD  OF ISOLATION.
Germans Ascribe   Recent Alliances  to
Fear of Japan.
Berlin, May 14.���For some reason special Interest seems to attach to a statement which the Vosslsche Zeltung
claims to have received from an official
source, that the United States and
Japan will begin negotiations for an
agreement protecting their mutual Interests In the Far East. The paper
editorially concludes tbat America's mo-
live, Uke Oreat Britain's and France's, is
fear of Japan's power. Predicting that
Japan will tear up the treaties as soon
as lt Biiits her purpose to do so, the
Zeltung remarks with satisfaction that
f Jermuny remains outside these combinations, and so long as she retains ber
present attitude towards disarmament
she need not regret It.

GREET PRINCE FU5HIMA
Will Travel to Canada With Earl Grey
���Pressed To Prolong Visit and
Sail From Vancouver.
Ottawa, May 14.���Secretary of State
Hon. R. W. Scott has received a cablegram from Baron Komura, expressing
his thanks for the generous hospitality
which is to be extended to Prince Fu-
shlml upon his arrival In Canada, hut
the baron adds that it will be Impossible
for the prince to make his stay ln this
country any longer than haB already
been arranged for, because his presence
is required in Japan. The Canadian
government wanted the prince to wait

Journey to and from Japan under the
British flag. The stay in Canada was

Sea on Flre.
Lorlent, Fiance, May 14.���Several
trawlers came In here yesterday reporting the observance of an extraordinary
phenomenon at sea which would appear
to have been a submarine volcanic eruption. The occurrence took place at a
point 44 miles southwest of the Island
of Croix, and 60 miles west of Belle
Isle. The mon on board the trawlers
noticed bright flames and Intense smoke
arising from the sea. Believing that
some vessel wns on flre, the trawelr
Kernevey wo��ked hor way ln that direction for the purpose of rendering assistance. She could, however, discover
nothing on flre. The flre and smoke
from no apparent cause, continued
througout the night, and becoming more
violent toward morning, the Kernevel
steamed away to Insure her own saftey.

COUNCIL BILL DOOMED
Prelates and Politicians Denounce It
���Haldane, Asquith and Grey
Blamed by AIL
Dublin May 14.���The active hostility
of the Roman Catholic church against
Mr. Birrell's Irish Bill renders specially
difficult John E. Redmond's task of securing its approval by the forthcoming
Nationalist convention. Cardinal Logue,
primate of all Ireland, haa now Joined
Archbishop Walsh and me bishops of
Limerick and Kildare in denouncing the
measure and tbe lead given by these
prelates ls particularly fateful, as practically every parish priest in Ireland
will be a delegate to the convention.
The Nationalist revolt is being assiduously stimulated by Timothy M. Healy,
William O'Brien and otber politicians.
Mr. Healy in an open letter declared
mat me "Introduction of me bill was
the worst day's work done for Ireland
in my time and to proceed with it would
be a crime against the Irish nation!"
He added: "The first draft of the bill
was better than the last, each fresb
draft grew steadily worse under tbe
shears of Roseberylsm," referring to
Foreign Secretary Grey, War Secretary
Haldane and Chancellor of the Excequer
Asquith, the followers of Lord Rosebery
wbo   are   members   ot   the   cabinet.
Neither the chief secretary of Ireland
nor   the   premier,   according   to   air.
Healy favored the introduction of the
"stunted bantling, who only saw the
light of day because of the pressure of
the Irish leaders."
Cardinal Logue goes so far as to say:
"I believe that any politician who will
try to secure the bill's acceptance by
me forthcoming convention will Incur
the gravest suspicion of endeavoring to
drive his countrymen in me interest ot
the ministry."
London, May 14.���The opinion in the
lobbies of me Houses of parliament on
me prospects of the Irish Council Bill,
which Is designed to meet the demands
for Irish Home Rule took a very pessimistic turn last night by me growing
belief that me Nationalistic convention,
which is to be held In Dublin on May
21 and 22, will not accept the bill.
In this case, In accordance with an
understanding between the Irish secretary, Mr. Birrell, and Jorn E. Redmond,
the Nationalist leader, reached during
me negotiations which proceeded the
drafting of the bill, tbe government will
make no further attempt to proceed
with the measure.
During the last few days the Irish
Catholic prelates have come out strongly in denunciation of me project. The
bishop of Limerick describes lt as a grotesque measure, while Archbishop
Walsh snys: "Tho bill seems so bad all
round that I will find difficulty in saying anything to Induce the convention
to approve of lt."
It is believed me effect of these utterances will be that the convention at the
most, will give a qualified sanction, the
condition being that me government
consent to certain amendments. It Is
believed Mr. Birrell is willing to amend
In the direction ot modifying the lord
lieutenant's power of veto and Increasing the government allowance from
$3,260,000 to $5,000,000. But It Is doubt,
fill If even these concessions will satisfy the convention.
Only Firecrackers.
Rome, May 14.���It Is officially denied
mat an attempt was made to explode
a bomb while the royal train stood in
me station at Pontelasc, Sunday. It Is
explained that some firecrackers wore
accidentally exploded before the train
arrived and that tho accident was of uo
significance. The denial followed the report that a bpnib supposed to bo used
In an attempt to kill the king had prematurely exploded, Injuring three child-
Bald: "All the union has done Is to get
all tbe young people to read me sporting pages of newspapers, wblch are considerably ln excess of the usual
number."
FRANCE KEEPS COOL.
Watching  Morrocco  Closely  but With
Great Patience.
Paris, May 13.���An official note issued tonight sets forth that the reply
of the Moorish government to France's
demands growing out of me murder of
Dr. Mouchamp of Morocco City, March
23rd, while showing a disposition to
give satisfaction, Is not acceptable, as it
only partly agrees to the French demands. The French troops, therefore,
will continue to occupy Oudja, but instructions bave been sent to the French
minister to accept any kind of fair offer looking for a settlement.
Tbe note announces that the complaints of France on the subject of agitation on the frontier of Morocco, wblch
have been aggravated by me recent receipt of ttie consignment of arms and
ammunition landed from the German
steamer Rosarlo and transshipped to
Chief Maclain at Cape Jubi, having received similar unsatisfactory response,
renewed representations will be forwarded to me Moorish government.
G. T. P. AT WINNIPEG
Negotiations   for   Right   of  Way   for
Transcontinental Through Manitoba Capital.
Winnipeg, May 14.���H. N. Ruttan,
city engineer, has reported on me application of the Grand Trunk Pacific to
enter me city, which will be heard before the railway commission tomorrow.
The city engineer reports that subways should be constructed at Pembina street and Pembina highway, and
one or two Intermediate crossings provided between intermediate points.
The city engineer suggests that the
crossing should be either In the nature
of viaducts or subways.
The city engineer also suggests that
the right of way should be conserved to
the city.
Colonel Rnttan reports tbat the proposed G. T. P. line Is so close to the
constructed. He" sureMts'tfilP&eTSlfll
should be built farther apart and two
subways built
The engineer suggests that provision
should be made for future crossings between Pembina highway and the city
limits, and said that he believed three
or four crossings should be provided for.
Otherwise the city engineer Bald he saw
no objection to me plan as filed.
The plsn submitted shows the O. T. P.

New Orleans, May 14.���Despatches
from Puerto Cortes, Honduras, yesterday, say: "Americans arriving here report mat the Guatemalan government
is committing unspeakable outrages.
Even women and children are not
spared. A family of ten was massacred
by soldiers near Guatemala City by

TRAFFIC WILL BE BLOCKED
No Near Prospect of Ssttlsment of
Longshoremen's Strike.
New York, May 14.���There is no
change for me better In the dock situation caused by me strike of longshoremen. Freight Is piling up at an enormous rate at all the docks and apparently the steamship companies have but
few men .to move It. The blockade Is
causing much Inconvenience to shippers
and merchants, transportation companies, and strikers are losing thousands
oi dollars dally. The loss to shipping
Interests alone Is Bald to aggregate $5.-
000,000 thus far, while the loss In wages
to the longshoremen also runs Into
seven figures. Neither side has thus far
shown any disposition to surrender, but
one side or the other must soon give
way as the strike Is paralysing the
ocean freight traffic ot the port, a condition that merchants cannot long permit to continue. According to the strike
leaders 3,000 stevedores are on strike
In Manhattan, Brooklyn and Hoboken.

LINDSEY DISSATISFIED.
Blames   Public   Excitement   fer   Toa
Hasty Agreement.
G. G. 8. Llndsey  is   not too   well
pleased with the terms of settlement of   ,
me coal strike.   The following extract
from the Toronto Newa shows Mr. Llnd-
sey's view of the situation:
Mr. Q. 0. 8. Llndsey, general manager ���
of the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co., Ltd.,
and president of the Western Coal Operators' Association, returned from
Fernie last night. The settlement of the
strike, he said, In an Interview, Is not
pleasing to tbe operators, because mey
were unsuccessful In obtaining a uniform set of conditions and prices. He
expressed me opinion that the anxiety
with which me public impressed on the
miners the fact mat business was rendered stagnant was a hindrance to the
settlement*, me operators were obliged
to settle on less favorable terms man
they otherwise would have, and me public might yet have, to bear the burden of
the increased cost.
Mr. Llndsey thought me conciliation
bill had an influence in inducing the
men to make an agreement, but it was
a great pity tbat the statute should
have been rendered valueless by the re
fusal of the miners to obey Its obligations hy returning to work, while they
sought to take advantage of Its benefits-
Word bad reached Mr. Llndsey that
at Coal Creek 300 men returned to work
on Tuesday and 650 yesterday. At Michel, where 800 men are affected, mey
bad not returned to work yesterday.
NUMBERS 8TILL GROW.
Immigrants Number Nearly 10,000 for ,
Each Week.
Montreal, May 14.���Immigrant re
turns for the two days ending the present week show that upwards of 1,000
aettlers have reached Canadian porta
within mat Interval, bound for the fertile fields of Western Canada. The majority of these have already passed
through Montreal. But there are aeveral thousands yet to be sent forward
to their destination tomorrow. Such a
large Influx in two days has pnt a severe tax on the colonist accommodation,
but up to the presem no great difficulty
hns been experienced by the railway
authorities in handling the new comers.
Tho vessels that reached Montreal
and Quebec Friday and yesterday with
their complements of third-class passengers are as follows: Empress of Ireland, 700; Lake Manitoba, 1,800; Lake

Winni|>ec. March U.���The very backward spring which has' greatly hampered agricultural operations throughout
Western Canada has been causing considerable anxiety In busLnss circles.
which are so vitally interested in the
crops.
With a view to ascertaining tl;- ��� UU I
condition the Free Press recetoed today,
LChes from a!! the leading points
; in tbe wheat areas of the three provinces and these, while not sanguine.
are certain'y even more encouraging
than was anticipated.
Summarized report* received indicate
that  in Manitoba  15   per cent,  of the
vbeat has beet) seeded and in Saskatch-
I ewan about 10 per cent.   No growth is
' rep:��rte<l from any point (with a single
exception)  but everywhere the ground
j is in splendid condition to receive the
t seed and there will be plenty of mols-
I ture to  carry it   well into  the  second

win be considerably less than that of
[ last year, instead of 15 per cent. ine.-*.*-. r.
] as it would have been had there been
time for the usual spring plowing.
There will be largely Increased acreage sown to barley and oats, and {ht
amount of flax wfJi probably be larger
than for some years.
Given fine warm weather from now
on there is nothing to prevent the Wesl
reaping splendid crops. Hut in the words
of one farmer. "There is not an hour to
lose." At present, on bright days, the

SCARCITY OF LABOR.
The Victoria board of trade has
adopted a resolution in favor of reducing the head tax on Chinese Immigrants.
It has met with little favor elsewhere in
the province. A few years ago It wns
said, and probably with truth, ilnit
every candidate for parllamenl or legislature appealing lo a llrltlsh Columbia
constituency was pledged to advocate
exclusion of tii- flilne.se. There Is no
reason yet to belters thnt the practical
unanimity on tin* subj-ac among British
Columbia workingmen. which furred
that pledge upon candidates, has iinil.i
gone any material change. Whether ll
be wisdom or mere prejudice th.- phrase
���white man's country" Is still dominant
It may be true that tree admlsalon ol
Chinese laborers would make Hritish
Columbia a less attractive Held foi
white laborers, and it Is while laborers
skilled and Industrious, that Urltlsh Columbia wains.
But It Is Idle to deny or Ignore Hit
fact that the labor situation lu this
province Is Berious, and that no Improvement Is In sight.
In common with the rest of Canada,
and to a greater degree than any other
part of Canada except Alberta and Sas
katchewan, llrltlsh Columbia Is enjoying a period of rapid miiu-rlal development If ihat development Is not to be
retarded or postponed an abundant sup
ply of labor, skilled and Unskilled, Is an
imperative need. Kor more than two
years mine and smelter managers and
mill owners have complained ihat It Is
Impossible to secure an adc-uual1: supply
of satisfactory' labor. Nor can It be said
that there Is any promise al present of
such an Influx as will even partially
meet the deficiency. In the clearing
and cultivating of the land lhe need is
even keener, and such operations have I
aires ly Iv-c-n greatly curtailed In consequence.
Under the circumstances there was
nothing surprising in the fact that employers of labor were irritated at a resolution adopted by labor organizations
at the coast declaring that there Is no
scarcity of labor In this province. Every-
oils- knows that such a statement is untrue. Hut the wisest way to answer It
Is not by an immediate appeal to permit
the unlimited entry of Chinese.
The question is one that merits and
requires earnest consideration from all
Classes. While labor is scarce ll must
| I course be highly paid, but Its scarcity Is also th.- chief cause of the very-
high cost of living which offsets the advantage of high wages.
British Columbia must secure labor
for Its development. No one wants
Chinese if Intelligent and industrious
while men can lie secured. It must not
be forgotten that nearly all the irami
grams entering Canada from the East
and Soutb are destined for the prairies
and will (et no farther. Not one per
cent, will come to British Columbia.
i'nr some r.-ason not published all the
efforts of the Dominion immigration department are still devoted to attracting
settlers to tbe plains. British Columbia
must do without Dominion aid and pn
-.id.- for her own necessities. Only the
governmenl can |s.rforin that lask, and
Inr its performance will require the cooperation of employers and employed,
of boards of trade and of labor organise.
Huns. Nothing can be gained, and only
harm can be done, by oratorical or editorial attack on either Interest.
EDITORIAL COMMENT.
The Week, a Victoria weekly, remarks that The Ually Canadian Is
"strong in history." Feeling kindly ills-
IKised we took a moment to glance
through the Week for an opportunity
to praise something. We found a personal notice of visitors passing through
Victoria "after spending the winter ln
California and San Diego." That is
quite as bad as "Canada and British
Columbja." Such expressions should be
impossible for any editor, even of the
Week.
Count von Wentlow's suggestion of
a motto for The Hague Conference, "If
yon wish war, prepare for peace," contains food for thought. As a maxim It
is at least as wise as Its -converse, "If

Utile or no coke has been coming
in of late to this smelter, and the stocst

but a question of days until the I! ('

Umilon. May 14.���The announcement
nf uiiiitlici- grual trlumiih of science, of
lierliaim eiioch making importance, was
maile thla eysnlni before a brilliant sh-
neiiibly Balliereil tonelher under the auB-
lilcea of the Royal Society. For more
than two houra the leaders of the Eng-
IIbIi Bclentlllc world listened to the ex-
lniHlllon of a well-known urinclple of
ini-isliaiilcH for the Aral time iiractlcally
applied, anil watched a marvelouH de-
inoiiHtralliin which m-i-ms-d to Bet the
lawn of uravltatlon at defiance. And
at the close they acclaimed its discoverer or Inventor an worthy of rank high
upon tlie roll of honor which bears the
iiaineH or Newton and Watts and Stephenson.
What they hiiw was this: A miniature
railway car or locomotive standing entirely above a single rail, with apparently nothing to balance it, ran about*
tlie hall, turned sharp corners at high
speed, crossed a single strand of wire
cable in lieu of a bridge and climbed
heavy inclines���all with perfect stability. It was sometimes loaded, sometimes empty. There was no attempt to
balance the lead; the vehicle Itself did
lhat Instantly and automatically. Every
attempt to unbalance tt resulted in a
paradox, if the load were piled all upon
one side lt seemed inevitable that the
vehicle would Bag, if indeed lt did not
topple over. But no, the overloaded side
automatically rose in proportion to the
burden aud the empty side was depressed. To the uninitiated the thing
wus uucanny, un Alice iu Wonderland
reality.
The creator of I his new Bystem of locomotive Ib I/juIb Urennan, C. II., the
well-known inventor of the Urennan torpedo. This invention, by the way, which
Ib controlled by the Hiliisli war department, Is the only device which has been
successfully kept a government secret
for auy length of time. Ho told his audience very briefly tonight something
aboul his long search for an Ideal method of traction. He began studying thc
problem In Australia nearly 30 years
ago. How to reduce friction was the
chief task. It is well known that only
about 12 per cent of the power generated by a locomotive Is actually used in
drawing a train. The friction to be
overcome is partly ln the machinery
and partly ln tlie oscillation of the ve-
hiclea and the grinding of the wheels
against the rails on either side. The
most perfect roadbed and rails with an
ordinary track will not reduce this beyond a certain point.
Mr. Urennan speedily realized, as
every railway man and mechanic haB
done, that the ideal condition would be
a train perfectly balanced upon a single rail. Given that, the possibilities
of great speed with economy of power
would be increased many fold. Until
tonight's demonstration was made the
practical attainment of that ideal would
have seemed outside the range of scientific obtalument to even the eminent
men who were included in the Royal
Society's audience. Very early in his
Investigations Mr. Urennan began experimenting with tho gyroscope���in
otk��r worda. he began to study the ordinary spinning top with which every
schutiOtiy la familiar. The principle of
the spinning top Is the Becret of the
aeemlng mlraclo which he Bhowed this
ovrolng.
The Inventor's own description of the
result of his labors ts slniplo enough to
Anyone's comprehension.   He said:
"The characteristic feature of this
aystem of transport Is that each vehicle Is capable of malntalng Its balance
upon an ordinary rail laid upon sleepers
on tbe ground, whether It is standing
still or moving In either direction at
any rate of speed, notwithstanding that
the centre of gravity Is Beverul feet
above tlle rail, and that wind pressure,
shifting of load, centrifugal action or
any combination of these forces may
tend to i ipso I it,
"Automatic stability mechanism of extreme simplicity carried by the vehicle
Itsolf endows It with this power. The
mechanism consists essentially of two
fly-wheels rotated directly by electric
motors In opposite directions at a very
high velocity and mounted bo that their
Kyrostatlc action and storcd-up energy
can be utilized.    ThcBe fly-wheels are
mounted on high-class bearings, and are
placed ln exhausted cases, so that both
air and journal friction is reduced to a
minimum, and consequently ihe power
required to keep them in rapid motion
Ib very small.
"The stored-up energy In the flywheels, when revolving at full apeed,
is so great and the friction so small that
If the driving current is cut off altogether they will run at sufficient velocity to Impart Btahillty to the vehicle for
several hours, while lt will take from
two or three days before they come to
rest. The stability mechanism occupies
but little space, Is conveniently placed
in the cab at one end of the vehicle.
Its weight Is also small, about five per
cent, of the total load being considered
an ample allowance for the first vehicle.
"The road wheels are placed in a
Hingis, row beneath the centre of the
vehicles, instead of in two rows near
the BldeB. as usual, and are carried on
bogles or compound bogies, which are
not only pivoted to provide for horizontal curves on (he track, but for vertical ones also. By this means the
vehicles can run upon curves of even
less radius than than the lenrcth of the
vehicle Itself, or on crooked rails or
rails laid over uneven ground without
danger of derailment.
"The motive power may be either
steam, petrol, oil, gas or electricity, as
considered most suitable for local conditions. In the flrst instance, however,
lt has been decided to use a petrol electric generating set, carried by the vehicles Itself, for the supply of current to
the road wheel motors and to the stability mechanism. Such a vehicle will have
the great advantage of being always
ready for immediate use, the gyroscope
wheels being kept constantly running by current from a small accumulator while the engine ls at rest In
order that the vehicle may be able to
ascend steep Inclines the wheels are all
power driven and change gears are provided for use in hilly country. It is also
possible to run free wheel down hill at
great velocity, so that a good average
rate of speed can be attained.
"Everything points to great economy
resulting from making the vehicles
wider In proportion to their length than
on ordinary railways, and it haB therefore decided to make the experimental
wagon twelve feet wide, or one and a
half times as wide as usual. For civil
work in the colonies the vehicles will
probably be two or three times as wide,
if not more. Brakes capable of being
operated by pneumatic or manual power
are provided for all the wheels.

London. May 14.���Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman speaking at Manchester
said they should be thankful that Halfour had at last been brought into line
on the question of colonial preference,
but he might have refrained from collapsing in such a penitent form until
the guests of the nation had returned
home. His move to create discussions
i, rtween the government and tbe colonics had been defeated. To quote tourer that Kurope was living in an armed
ramp, he described the 3.000 miles of
frontier between the United States and
Canada, and continued, "What could be
finer than this high truce of God
f cheers) under which thfse two free sis
ter nations have resolved to live, within th<> lecnrtty of that defenceless barrier, to banish these symbols of strife,
piejudicf and suspicion on that high
way of frontier. <Ch��*ers. I The relationship so established was noi less noble
than those which published between the
nation- of the old world, nations which
still hug an ancient blasphemy thnt
armed force is the only title to respect,
the only guarantee of security.
'The new world hart shown us a moro
excellent way. Heaven h��lp these greal
confederations of free people to con-
tinne to prosper and to go on iu all thai
makes real sfrenirth to a stati-. to main
t tin In all its radiance their bright, ex-

Conservative member for Slocan riding:
Heboid the glorious change of late.
See Wm. Hunter enthroned in state.
See Honesty in all her charms
Content and smiling fn his arms.
Great talents in this man are found,
A piercing wit, a judgment sound,
A scholar like tht- noonday bright
Dispersing   darkness   from ' the light.
Squire Hunter! that upright man
Who now rules Slocan'a silvery land.
His heart disdains a golden bribe,
His sou! disdains the Socialist tribe���
Who like a lot of Ignorant knaves
Would have us to be their slaves.
Hong may he live in peace and love
And happy be in realms above.
Hoor Davidson, 'Ub he that's dead
Bul Hunter now he rules instead.
