'   Londott,   Jan.    II     Lor!     Sh .thr-on-
iud Mount Hoyal,  in an i.itcrvlow   last
Royerton, Pa., Jan. 14.���When daylight dawned today the full extent of
last night's horror, when Rhodes' opera
house was burned, was apparent. The
list of dead is placed at 160 and the Injured at 75. How many were killed may
never be known for among the victims
of this nwful disaster were B number
of visitors and some strangers.
An amateur performance of "Scottish Reformation" for the i>en*#flt of st.
John's Lutheran Sunday school was heing produced, when the explosion oc-
GUTTI d, some .one yelled "fire" and In
a remarkably short time the centre of
the Open house w-us a blazing furnace.
The rapidity with which the flames
spread was caused by the upsetting of
coal oil used for (he footlights. Some
of the persons on the stage endeavored
toallay the fright of the women and children in the audience, bnt even the men
seemed to lose all control of themselves
and fought with the women and children in their efforts to reach the street.
In ibis manner women aud children,
who might otherwise have escaped the
llau.es, were forced back and trampled
io death. Pai tieulaiiy was this the case
with those who were caught on the
stairway. Scores uf persons on the second Moor, seeing the awful jam on the
stairs, risked their lives by jumping
-fun Ihe windows. Several of those
were so badly injured lhat they died.
It Is estimated that there were four hundred people in (he place when the ex
plosion occurred.

population nnd there is scarcely a home
in ilie little town that has not heen af
dieted by last night's (lie.

In last night's theatre horror at from
126 to HiO. Tho town ottleiaJs think ut
least 150 lives were lost. Only ii few-
were Injured. The chief uf lhe fire de
paitinent. who Investigated the cause ul
tlit* disaster, says tho firs rush toward
the slago was caused by several men
and women becoming frightened when
thOBS connecting the moving pic tun
machine and the tank supplying tlu
light slipped off Its connection, and
made a hissing noise. The tank Itsell
did not explode until after the Qamei
had reached it.
In going to the fire the fire engine col
iided with a tree, one of the firemen
was thrown from (he engine landi���{
heavily against Ihe tree and waa in
Btantly killed.
The state constabulary on arrival Im
mediately took charge and roped off tht
scene of horror. Knrly this morning n
gasoline tank exploded and blew down
(he standing walls, and hut For the pre
caution of the guards many Others would
huve been Killed.

Now York, Jan. 14 ���There was a delay of half an hour in beginning the
Thaw trial toduy, Justice Dowling having been caught in a subway block on
his way down town.
J. D. Deemar of Philadelphia, was the
first witness called to the stand. Dr.
Deemar testified at the first hearing
that he treated Harry Thaw from a boy
for St. Vitus dance. He repeated this,
and told of attending members of the
Copley family, the mother's branch of
the defendant's antecedents. Dr. Deemar said that Henry W. Copley, abroth-
er of the older Mrs. Thaw, died an im-
becile.
Dr. Deemar was asked as to the present mental condition and whereabouts
of John Ross, a maternal conning of the
defendant, but District Attorney Jerome
blocked the testimony on the ground
that the doctor obtained his Information while aiding in a professional capacity, and it would require a waiver
from his patient before he could testify.
Justice Dowling sustained the objection
over the protest of Mr. Littleton of the
defense. On cross-examination District
Attorney Jerome drew out tho fact that
Henry Copley while in capacitated from
mental worry was never confined.
Charles Koehler, of Winona, Minn.,
who was a teacher at Wooster University, Wooster, Ohio, In 1886 when Harry
Thaw was a student there, took the
stand and was asked to tell his impressions of Thaw as a boy of 10 or 17 years
of age.
'Harry Thaw always had a nervous
gait and walked je.rkily," he said. "His
eyes were striking, his complexion aim*
mic. His manner In the class room was
abstracted and Indifferent. His eyes
usually hud a fixed staling gaze. There
was never any warmth in his eyes, no
illumination."
Mr. Koehler said he set down many of
Thaw's eccentricities In a dlaiy which
was destroyed ten yeai*s ago. Thaw's
mind always worked slowly and he had
great difficulty in following any demonstration.    His manner was irrational.
Cross-examined by District Attorney
Jerome, Mr. Koehler said two hundred
hoys cunie under his care at Wooster
and since that time as a teacher he had
been thrown ln contact with 1,500 boys
or more. Tho witness Insisted, however, that the memory of Thaw aB n
pale faced, (witching lad stood out above
all others. When Jerome asked if the
witness had carried Thaw along in his
mind as a ' horrible example." Mr. Littleton objected and was sustained.
Koehler said he had often used Thaw's
case as au illustratlou. Asked where
and-"When and to whom. "To a boy
named  Bingham," began  the witness.
"What Bingham," demanded Jerome,
"the police commissioner?"
Thaw himself joined ln the genera!
laughter. He looked annoyed, however.
when (he witness snld he hnd used the
defendant as the example of tho son of
a rich man.
At the conclusion of Koehler's testimony luncheon was ordered.

CALGARY'S TROUBLES.
Police Investigation  Farce���Chief Complainant Took Hush Money.
Calgary, Jan. 14.���The civic Investigation concluded its work without any
starling evidence being brought In and
Judge Stuart will hand his report, with
full evidence, to the city council in the
course of a few weeks* time. Tucker,
star witness for the prosecution, who
claimed the police arrested parties for
stealing from him and then dropped
the prosecution, was confronted with
the man who stole the goods and had
to admit that he accepted ten dollars
from him not to prosecute. This removed the charge entirely from the police, especially as it was brought out
in the evidence that members of the
Citizens' League, who were prosecuting
the chief of police, knew previous to
the trial tbat Tucker had taken hush
money. E. Ryan, of P. J. Nolan & Co.,
barristers, In summing up Ihe case for
the defense made on the of the greatest
speeches ever heard in a Calgary court
and was warmly complimented by the
legal   brethren  afterwards.
Faddy Johnson, of the Northern Bank
had his collar bone broken In a hockey
game here last night, being sent Into
the boards on a heavy check. Ho was
removed to the hospital.
, Charlie May, '���Mmont-m, met members of the Calgary Turf club here last
night und submitted a proposition of
forming a western racing circuit to stake
In Alberta. Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
This proposition was received with great
favor, and the secretary was instructed
to write all the town and cities in these
provinces, asking them If they are fuvor-
uble to the movement to send delegates
to a general meeting which will be held
In Moose Jaw February 12 for organising purposes.

THE  COMING SESSION.
The legislative assembly ot British
Columbia will opa-ii at iliu capital Thurs
day affternoon for the saacomi _rssi.ni ..i
ih.- ina seal legislature.
ii is in.i anticipated ihm tbe s.-ssi.m
will i,a- a protracted one. There are *. r
Ions problem* confronting Ibe province,
I,ui they un- beyond ihe control "i the
provincial legislature. They may be referred rn iiiniiiK Hn- debates but no decisive aotlon can be taken mi them ""
account aaf ilie attitude of ilia. Dominion
government We refer a,i coarse to
ih.. Question of Oriental, ami especially
of Japanesi Immigration. British Colum
bin's legislature may inass ami repass
the Natal Act as il Is called, or any other
measure for restriction. Hut in dnlm;
saa it will I.:...v. perfectly will tbal an)
such measure will in- reserved by om
lieutenanl gove r mi "the pleasure oi
th,- governor gi neral in council" i"
known, ami apparently th,. governor
general'ln-councll, thai i* the Dominion
cabinet, doesn'l know i's pleasure yel
One thing, however, Ims been accom
pllshed In connection wiih ibis problem
Tha- legislature and the people knma
now who is responsible for the pi-rsts
tent thwarting aaf their will. There can
be no repetition "1 tba1 Impudenl and
absurd attempt to hajbi Premier M.
Bride responsible for the aol ,.i a Do
minion governmenl official.
The administration of the timbei landi
of tba* province. Is one of the most im
portant matters to be ala.alt with Ihi;
session. There are three great opnald
orations to ba. kepi in vla,w, the main
benance of tha- provincial revenue, th.
legitimate int. ra.sts of the owners ,oi
lessees of timber lands, ami mosl lm
portant of all. tlu. preservation of tha
tlmba-r resources, one of tba* greales
assets of  Ibe  province.      The    pollcj
adopted in this regard must !>*. such ns
will, while allowing those wlmsa- money
ta Invested in timber t����� maka* a fair
return, discourage an I prevent waste
anal destruction, aud preserve for all
time lo come a source of wealth In
which British Columbia is not excelled
by any other territory  on  earth.
The matter of the endowment and establishment, of a provincial university,
mi which legislation has been promised
this year, has presumably passed from
tba- haiials uf Mr. Kulton to those of Dr.
Valium, who now holds Ilia, portfolio of
education. It Is to hi- hoped that In Ihe
Interval opposition members have gained some measure of illumination and
will I., reaaly in consider tills important
question am rather broader lines.
Tb.' session does nut promise anything
Bensational otherwise. It Is unlikely
thai iba- efforts to inanufaa-iun. scandal,
which disgraced tin. closing session of
tin- lasi legislature will ha- revived. II
haa been amply demonstrated that suet]
. ir..ns are unprofitable. The Liberal
members of the legislators win besl
serve their credll ami future Interests

ih.. governmenl in th,' progressive pollcj

EDITORIAL  COMMENT.
Our contemporary says: "It la noteworthy ihut only one member of thr
Into council Is Keeking re-election. This
is a anffldent  commentary   upon  the
record of the |iiisl." This eminently
junt and kindly judgment of the conduct
of seven men who have given Qngrndff-
Ingly of their time and talents for Nel
son's   sake   in   spite   of   persistent.,   nn
merited abuse, win he duly appreciated
hy them and their fellow citizens. When
BUcb is the reward of faithful Hervlce It
ts no wonder that reputable men are
wltli meat difficulty Induced to offer for
election.
OPPORTUNE   CHEERFULNESS.
C.   P.   R.   President's   Confident   Words
Check   Wave of  Pessimism.
One of the hest New Yenr's gifts that
Canada can receive is the announcement ihat the Canadian Pacific railway
is about to Increase its capital by MS,
320,000,   At the head of the Canadian
Pacific are not only many of the ablest
nun of the country, hut, because ol the
vast enterprise Ihey own and adminis
ter nn the land and rivers, the lakes nnd
the oceans, men exceptionally in ;i
position to judge the likely course of
future events. In such ci re it instances,
the winds of Sir Thomas S_aughnessy,
president of the company, speaking for
the hoard of directors are most inspiring. The directors "are convinced that
Canada will continue to progress, and
that if there be any temporary set-back
resulting from financial conditions in
other parts of the world, tt will prove
comparatively unimportant." Therefore
it is beld to lie vitally important that
the Canadian Pacific should proceed
without cessation in the course adopted
Borne years ago, of adding to the railway's facilities in every direction, so as
to be "prepared to cope with the very
largely Increased t raffle sure to he
thrown on your lines." Such language
is indeed inspiring. and will res une
C nHdence and buoyancy to those who
were inclined to be mildly pessimistic
as to the Immediate future, even so far
as Canada was concerned. As the Witness has persistently reiterated and has
shown abundantly by facts and figures,
there never has been any reason to
fear any general or prolonged contraction of business in this country,and the
action of the Canadian Pacific railway
goes to show that by the springtime
everything should lie in full swing again.
The railway, at least, deserves our
thanks at this time for the expression
Of its well-founded confidence, a confidence that uot only covers this country,
but extends to Kurope, where most of
its securities outside of Canada are
held. Indeed, Its confidence that Ita
securities will find an advantageous
market at this time is the most cheerful
financial   feature     of     many   months.���

British Cotton Mill Strike.
Manchester, Jan. 14.���All efforts at Intervention to bring about a settlement
of the dispute between the cotton mill
owners and their employees threatening
to result in locking out 150.000 men,
has come to naught. The co-operatives
at a meeting last night decided to break
off all further negotiations with the
master shiners and a lockout now appears to be Inevitable.

JAPANESE LAW COURTS
Jurisprudence    Still    Experimental    But
Following  British   Methods���
Afraid of Juries.
London, Jan. 14.���K. Suztiky has written liis views upon the subject of justice
In Japan, and it would seem thut Japan
will not adopt tbe jury system. He
Bays:
"Already In Japan we have adopted
a great deal of the BngUSh system. We
have no juries, however, in Japan, aud
wish to study the working of them very
carefully.
"At present I incline to the opinion
that while a jury should be excellent in
d-'cidlng a simple case of right or/ wrong
or even of custom I have grave doubts
as to whether it would act as well in
those complex questions which must inevitably arise In a highly civilized
modern community.
"It seems to my���though we are so
far only at the beginning of our inquiry
���that in such cases the best method
ls to put the mutter into tbe hands of
one or more men who have made a lifelong study not only of the law relating
to the particular points in dispute, but
who are also trained students of human
nature.
"You must not think that we chop oft
a man's head for nothing, as we did in
what you call the 'good old days.' We
have a very  elaborate judicial system.

based largely on yours. We have progressed with astonishing rapidity, and
must be careful���that is a point very
often overlooked���that we do not adopt
western reforms for which our people
are really not fitted. Later we may
nave them, but in the matter of law, at
any rate, we ought to be very careful.
It is easy to make laws, but the great
question is, will they seem right to the
people?    East is not West.
"The only authentic record worth noticing in the history of justice in Japan
is the existence in the Middle Ages of a
special officer for dealing with criminal
affairs, while during the period of military ascendency those matters were
taken charge of by censors. Coming
down to the Tokugawa regency, magistrates were made to deal with civil and
criminal affairs. They had not, however,
any laws to follow, but were obliged to
Judge each case according to the light
of their own understanding, and in conformity with the broad principles of
chastening wrong und  upholding right.
The first regular court of justice established by the Meiji government was
the Tokyo tn 1871. Several improvements were subsequently carried out,
till at last, by the organization of courts,
the present system was developed.
"It is divided into four grades���that Is,
Supreme court. Appeal court. Local
courts and District courts. The last is
the lowest tribunal, and is conducted
by a single judge, while In the local
courts three collegiate judges sit on a
case, in the appeal courts five collegiate
judges, and in the supreme court seven
collegiate judges.
Public procurators are attached to
each court on commission from the
minister of justice. It is needless to
say that ordinary judges represent the
right of sovereignty of the emperor,
and that their function is held sacred
and inviolable. Hence their tenure of
office is securely guaranteed by the constitution.
"Japan had no written code of laws,
properly speaking, till about thirty
years ago. The first attempt In this
direction was the compilation of a criminal code In 1870, amended three years
later. The code was far from perfect,
having been mainly based on our ancient customs, mollified more or less by
Qhlneae law, In 1S82 tbe criminal code
and the code of criminal procedure were
enforced. The latter v-ras subjected to
thorough amendment in 1889, and the
former is about lo be amended."
French Art Treasures.
Paris, Jan. 14.���M. Groult, the owner
of one of the finest art collections in
the world, died last night. The pictures
in his gallery, which are valued at $4.-
000,000, include master pieces by Turner, Constable and Gainsborough, and almost priceless examples of the French
painters of the ISth century. There is
much speculation as to the fate of the
collection, but lt is stated that the bulk
of It has been bequeathed to the Louvre.
